A girl looking for a way out.

Being the daughter of New America’s leader, Mercury Masters has everything a girl could want. A glamorous life full of beautiful people, and the power to have anything she wants, except for one thing—to escape. Because Mercury’s perfect life comes with secrets to keep. Dangerous secrets that if made public would destroy her, her family, and her father’s reign. Then she meets Hawk.

A boy looking to be a hero.

Hawk, a handsome prep school dropout turned vigilante, has his own family secrets. Deadly secrets that have haunted him since he was fifteen. But instead of fighting the ghosts of his past, Hawk has assembled a group of misfit hackers and thieves to save the future from the corrupt government of New America and the mysterious virus that is killing off its citizens. But trying to do the right thing is tough when the person you really want to save is your enemy’s daughter.

A love that could kill them both.

Powerful forces keep them apart, but coming together could be the key to saving New America from destruction—even though it may cost both their lives.

A near-future YA biopunk retelling of Robin Hood.

Love Between Enemies (Grad Night #2)
by Molly E. Lee
Publication Date:  January 8, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled: Crus

Zoey Handler is ready to put an end to her decade-long rivalry with Gordon Meyers. They’ve traded top spot between valedictorian and salutatorian for years, but all that’s over now. Right? But after a crazy graduation speech prank gets out of hand, suddenly their rivalry turns into all-out war. Time to make peace with a little friendly payback.

Step one? Make him believe they’re now friends.

Step two? Show him the time of his life at an epic graduation party.

Step three? Don’t fall for his tricks.

Step four? Absolutely, positively, do not kiss him again.

So what if he’s cute? (Okay, hot.) So what if he’s charming? (Heaven help her, tempting.) So what if he apologizes? (That has to be fake.) She knows the real Gordon. And no matter how much her heart begs her to stop, there’s no turning back.

 

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one epic party, complete with every high-schoolers-gone-bad shenanigan, and two rivals who discover maybe they could be something much more…if only they’d stop fighting long enough to notice it.

Published January, 2018

Published by Evernight Teen

Seventeen-year-old travel blogger CC is stuck on a never-ending road trip with her wanderlust-addicted father. When her dad lands the job of his dreams in Sugar Lump—wedding capital of the world—CC finally finds a place to call home. Complete with two quirky best friends and a quixotic guy to crush on, Sugar Lump is more shades of perfect than she can possibly count.
But when CC accidentally overhears the mayor complaining that she has to “take out” a rogue employee for not fulfilling the terms of his contract, the idyllic town’s facade crumbles. Devastated by the possibility of having to move yet again, CC discovers everyone has been keeping a massive secret from her—including her own father.

Read Below for an excerpt from the book:

He moved a little closer, his jeans gliding easily over the leather, and put his right arm on the back of the seat too. Despite looking like he rolled out of a dumpster, he didn’t smell like it. He smelled like Irish Spring soap.

“When did you move to town?”He wasn’t looking at me, or anything in particular for that matter, but I could only assume the question was for me.

“Yesterday.”

“Will you be at school Monday?”

“Yeah.” I wasn’t playing his game. If he wanted to have a conversation with me, he was going to have to look in my eyes and address me like a human being.

“Are you a senior?”

“Junior.” I flashed him a fake smile he didn’t see.

Thorn raked his hands through his thick, gray-tipped hair, then clasped them behind his head. That position only lasted for a few seconds then he lurched forward, resting his elbows on his knees. I couldn’t tell if he didn’t want to be near me or if he just couldn’t keep still. I slid away from him either way.

“Is she always like this? Really, Henry. I know you haven’t known her long but she can speak in sentences, right?”

“Clearly CC has good taste and knows not to even bother talking to you.” Luna’s dislike for him made me think my snap judgement was sound. He was probably some kind of hot, crazy-haired womanizer.

The easy balance of our trio had turned into a volatile quartet. I pulled a curl though my fingers to keep my hands busy.

“Thorn, don’t. Be nice.” Henry said it in a genial way, but Thorn seemed to take it as law. He sat back, flung his knee up, rested his left elbow on the back of the seat, and unleashed the full force of his wide-set, honey-brown eyes on me. They were so clear and so deep it made me wonder if he hadn’t been looking at me on purpose to save me from how cosmic they were.

“CC, it’s nice to meet you. I’m sorry if I scared you or made a bad first impression, but as I’m sure you could sense, my situation was dire. My situation is dire.” His tone changed from confident and clipped to languid and loose, but I couldn’t tell if it was sincere.

“I accept your apology.”

Not all princesses get their happily ever after…
They tell me I killed my boyfriend Phillip in cold blood. I stabbed him
twenty one times. I’m only seventeen years old, and I am serving life in Spindle Ridge Asylum for the Criminally Insane.
I don’t remember killing him, so it’s really hard to believe I’m capable of murder. In fact I don’t remember anything before I came to Spindle Ridge, not even my boyfriend.
 I can only grasp onto my realistic dreams while the madness of the asylum threatens to pull me under. I dream I’m a beautiful princess and there is an evil faerie named Maleficent who is bent on my destruction. The dreams are the closest thing I have to memories of my life, except they aren’t real.
I’m crazy. I’m not a princess.
They’re the mad illusions of an irrational teenage girl, right?
They’ve assigned me a new doctor, and she says I can trust her, and that
she’ll help me see the truth of who I really am.
When she arrived she brought a new patient, Sawyer, who is everything
Spindle Ridge isn’t: exciting, mysterious and beautiful. He promises he’s here
to rescue me. Trusting either of them frightens me.
Could it be possible that my dreams are more than just the imaginings of
a delusional girl? Could they be truth?
Excerpt:
I woke in the middle of the night hearing screams fill the air. This was
not uncommon at all, but tonight I wasn’t expecting it. Normally when Adele’s
meds are changed, she wakes screaming that she can’t sleep. Adele’s room is
across from mine. She is roughly in her twenties and I never learned how she
ended up here. I try not to talk to the other patients. I don’t know why it is,
but I don’t fit in with these people. To them I’m the murderer and they tend to
think less of me. That’s fine. I am what they say I am. That’s why I’m here,
right?
They told me I stabbed my
boyfriend, Phillip, but I don’t remember doing it. I actually don’t remember
Phillip at all. No recollection of having been in a relationship either. I must
have killed him or else I wouldn’t be in Spindle Ridge.
 
Dr. Altman says that I have to believe that I did it or we will never get
anywhere. I’ll admit it’s hard to believe that these hands could stab a person
twenty times. No matter how I imagined it, it is always hard to believe. 
 
I sat up listening hard for the screams. When they came again I noticed
they were not female, they were male. The screams were deeper and reached a
longer distance than Adele’s cries ever could. I wondered if the whole building
could hear him.
 
I pulled my covers up over my neck and covered my face. I just wanted to
sleep and fall back into the dream I was having. It was beautiful, and if I had
my way, I would stay there forever.
Wait!
I sat up fast. Closing my eyes, I
tried to remember the dream to the last second. It wasn’t the same dream as the
one’s prior. This dream was different! This dream was me and a boy.
 
I never dreamt of anyone but my parents and the evil woman. The dream’s
soft lullaby came back to me as I remembered where I was.
 
The smell of fresh grass came across my senses.
 
The sky so blue as I lay on a blanket. I rolled over and saw the face of
a boy. He was everything that Spindle Ridge wasn’t; he was beautiful. He had
long, shaggy, but not unruly, hair that touched his collar. When he smiled at
me, he looked like a boy in love. In love with me.
 
“Get up you lazy sack!”
 
I opened my eyes and was pulled back into the now. I was forced to leave
the dream behind as I was being pulled out of bed by two nurses.
About Christy: 

I am Southern California native, now living in New Jersey! How did that
happen?
 I am married and have  two beautiful little girls who love to read just like Mommy. I have had a passion for books since I was a little girl and an imagination for just as long. I hope my books can inspire others to read and to write too.

Review/ Breaking The Ice by Julie Cross

Published by Entangled Teen Source: ARC From Publisher, Book From Tour Company

Breaking the Ice (Juniper Falls #2)
by Julie Cross
Publication Date:  December 26, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

The second book in the Juniper Falls series from NY Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Julie Cross, perfect for fans of Miranda Kenneally and Abbi Glines.

Haley Stevenson seems like she’s got it all together: cheer captain, “Princess” of Juniper Falls, and voted Most Likely to Get Things Done. But below the surface, she’s struggling with a less-than-stellar GPA and still reeling from the loss of her first love. Repeating her Civics class during summer school is her chance to Get Things Done, not angst over boys. In fact, she’s sworn them off completely until college.

Fletcher Scott is happy to keep a low profile around Juniper Falls. He’s always been the invisible guy, warming the bench on the hockey team and moonlighting at a job that would make his grandma blush. Suddenly, though, he’s finding he wants more: more time on the ice, and more time with his infuriatingly perfect summer-school study partner.

But leave it to a girl who requires perfection to shake up a boy who’s ready to break all the rules.

I was  thrilled to find out that I was accepted to take part in the blog tour for Julie Cross’s second book Breaking The Ice. I quickly have to thank Entangled Teen and Chapter By Chapter Blog Tour for allowing me to take part.

After reading the first book Off The Ice, I was excited to know that there was more to come and to continue this series. If you follow me on social media you will know that I am a hockey mom to a 14 year old son (Bantam) and a hockey manager for a midget team that my son is a call up for. We have been in the minor hockey world for 6 years now. So getting to read books that are around hockey has been fun to read.

Breaking The Ice takes place in a little town called Juniper Falls in Minnesota where life is centered around hockey. Everyone in Juniper Falls is obsessed with hockey. I think this is a town I need to go to.

Since this is a second book I won’t get too much into. Both books are stand alones in the series but you will get a brief introduction to characters.

Our main characters are Haley and Fletcher. Haley is the Queen Bee of the school. She is captain of the cheerleaders and reigning princess. She is the popular girl at school and her only interest is cheerleading more then she does about school and as luck would have it she is forced to do summer school. Something she isn’t keen on doing. She needs to pass or else. Failing is not an option for her. Its not in her vocabulary.

Now Fletcher is a hockey player who likes to keep his head down. He keeps to himself. When Fletcher’s cousin finds out that Fletcher is going to summer school for extra credit and that he will be with Haley he begs his cousin to put in a good word for him because he has been crushing on Haley. Pretty soon he finds himself seated behind her and being her assignment partner. Thinking this couldn’t work out any better for Cole he agrees. I loved Cole he was too cute.

As Haley and Fletcher begin to work together she realizes that there is more to this  tall dark handsome boy then he lets on and that there is a something mysterious about him. I think she knew he would be the perfect partnery to work with but she soon realizes that if she wants to pass she has to work for it and I think I loved this about Fletcher he didn’t give her the easy way out.

I really enjoyed reading this and its definitely different from the first book. This was a quick read and the perfect one to read during Christmas.

Looking forward to seeing where this series goes.
