WWY_ebook_1707x2500
He never wanted a partner. And then she came along.
After more than a decade chasing shadows, Antonio Santos finally has a lead on the hiding place of The Serpent, the elusive villain who kidnapped him as a child and murdered his mother and uncle. But in order for Tony to get close, he’ll need access to an exclusive private island—where he can only enter with a woman on his arm.
Antonio goes to Stark Security to call in a debt … then walks out with Emma Tucker on his arm. A loner, Antonio isn’t interested in having a partner. He just needs a female. But the striking redhead’s skills soon impress him. More than that, her lush body and beguiling self-assurance tease his senses in unanticipated ways.
A longtime operative with deadly skills, Emma resents being arm candy for someone else’s agenda. But the more she works with Antonio, the more she admires his razor-sharp intelligence and formidable prowess. And when the island’s games push them over a sensual cliff, she can’t deny his talents in the bedroom, too.
As passion rises on this island playground full of lust and danger, they both fight the growing attraction between them. But with danger racing toward them from both on and off the island, they soon realize that more than their hearts are at stake. Because unless they can trust and rely on each other, they also risk losing their lives.

Prologue
The world is a fucked up place. That was probably the first lesson I learned in life. A hard-taught lesson when he’d yell at me or slap me. Or worse. He was supposed to love us. To protect us. But “supposed to” is only the truth in a fairy tale world. We lived in the real world, my sister and me. And when it got to be too much—when there was nothing and no one we could turn to except each other—that’s when we ran. I’ve done things I’m ashamed of. Things I had to in order to survive. To keep us safe. And I learned a long time ago not to trust anyone but myself and my sister. Because the people who are supposed to protect you will fail you. And the people who are supposed to love you can just as easily be monsters. But lately, things have started to shift. My world is opening, and people are surprising me. I’m letting down my guard; I’m letting people in. It’s a mistake, and I know it. Because now he’s come into my life. And though I know I need to keep my distance—though I know damn well that he’s going to hurt my heart—I can’t help but slide down that hill toward him, terrified all the while that he won’t be strong enough to catch me. And even more scared that he will.

My journey Part 3.. My new diet...

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, "Always Eat After 7 PM". The opinions expressed below are my own.

If you have been with me for awhile, you know about my heart attack back in 2017. If not you can catch up HERE and HERE


Since September 2019 I have been trying a few different diets, but I haven't been able to find one that really works for me in all aspects. Some call for special food, some are just too expensive to maintain and some involve a ton of calculations. I was not loosing any weight with most of them, especially since I always had to cook separate meals for the kids.

I ended up gaining 3 more pounds over the course of 5 months, so I was maintaining my weight but I needed to loose, and I always felt like I was starving! So I jumped at the chance to receive and advanced copy of  Always Eat After 7 PM: The Revolutionary Rule-Breaking Diet That Lets You Enjoy Huge Dinners, Desserts, and Indulgent Snacks—While Burning Fat Overnight by Joel Marion.  Over the next month, I will be sharing my experiences with the book and the diet.


 The Always Eat After 7 PM plan consists of: The 14-day Acceleration Phase to kick-start the program and see rapid results, The Main Phase where you’ll learn exactly which foods to eat when in order to achieve your weight-loss goals, The Lifestyle Phase to keep the weight off for good. 


Learn more about the book and how to purchase here.

We’ve been traditionally taught to avoid carbs, have an early dinner, and never eat before bed. But the fact is, the latest scientific research shows us this earlier model is not the most ideal 

I've been actively trying to loose 80 pounds, so far I've been maintaining the weight; no loss. I can't keep doing the things that I am doing and not loosing the weight. So I sat down to read the book. Right off the bat Joel begins addressing all my concerns. I have always been told, even at a young age, to never eat after 6-7 pm, always leave lots of time between your last meal and bedtime so that the food doesn't just turn into fat overnight. Joel includes studies and research, so you know that it's not all made up! This really got me hooked: 

A research paper published in Sports Medicine in 2014 showed that people who eat the majority of their carbs at dinner actually sleep better. Carb-induced, quality sleep decreases cortisol (a fat-storing hormone) and ramps up the production of your sleep hormones, serotonin and melatonin. Restorative sleep increases fat-burning hormones—the main one being growth hormone—overnight.

As a mother to teens, I am normally on the go most of the day; so I can't really eat big meals in the hours that are advised. So being able to eat the majority of my carbs at night is perfect for me! I'm extremely excited to dive in and I'll post an update in about a week, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out this video on the science behind the diet.




 So head over and check out the book, and maybe join me on my journey!

Release Blitz: Bad News by Stacy Travis

Bad New - RB banner
Sexy, arrogant co-worker. One weekend alone. Do I want the story? Or do I want him?
Bad News, an all-new steamy, enemies-to-lovers romance from Stacy Travis, is available now!
BadNews-ebook5x8 (1)
Jack Galloway is an award-winning journalist, a star at The Examiner, and he’s got the chiseled jaw and deep blue eyes that light me on fire.
Oh, and I hate his arrogant guts.
He told my boss that I can’t hack it as a reporter. He actually said it was a mistake to hire me. But I just landed a scandalous story that will launch my career and prove him forever wrong. Yeah, it steps on Jack’s beat a little. Okay, a lot.
So our boss is making us report it together for an entire weekend. At a gorgeous oceanfront villa with sailboats and cocktails and oh…he looks good in a sport coat.
Jack brings out my insecurities. He makes me doubt my instincts. And ignites a desire in me that I haven’t felt before.
But I know he’s hiding something. And I know I’m risking more than my job by pursuing the truth.
If I have to choose, do I want the story? Or him?

It’s a rough world out there, and we all sometimes need a good, romantic beach read, even if we can’t make it to the beach. I’ve spent many lazy days walking the streets of Paris and other gorgeous European cities, and if I’m doing it right, I’m bringing you a dash of romance and a vacay fantasy.
I can’t sit still, so when I’m not hiking, biking or running, I’m playing a very average game of tennis. Background music for writing undoubtedly features some U2, Lizzo, Billy Joel, Pink, Taylor Swift, and Led Zeppelin. Not necessarily in that order. And if I could only eat one food group, it would be cheese. Or wine. Or bread. Are those food groups? Whatever.

Family fun with ProjeX

ProjeX Image Projecting Arcade Game



We like most of the US and people around the world have been stuck inside for almost 2 months. We played all the board games, card games, and video games that we have. The kids were starting to get tired of playing the same things over and over again, so when I was contacted to review the  Projex Projection Arcade Game; I jumped on it. The description gave me major Duck Hunt vibes, and the shooting was perfect for my kids.

Description

Projex is the Projecting Arcade Machine that projects moving targets that you can blast on any light-colored wall. Choose from 5 different games and 3 different skill levels. Blast Targets, UFO's or Ducks. One or two players can play.

ProjeX Features:
3 different target images: Duck, Target UFO
5 Built-in games
6 shot capacity
Second blaster for 2 player games
3 interchangeable image slides for different targets and sound effects
Digital sound effects and LED scoring display
3 ways to play:
1. Solo
2. Head to Head
3. Co-op
Requires 3 AA batteries- not included

Once it arrived the kids were excited to get playing. Set up was extremely easy straight out of the box. All you have to do it put the batteries in and turn it on. Being able to set this up and use it on a blank wall was perfect, no sitting in front of the tv! But after a few games, my kids of course sat down!
The cords that attach the guns to the base are a little short, and you can pull the base off the table if you are taller. My 6ft son kept pulling it off the table while playing. 
The cats enjoyed chasing the cords and the lights on the wall as you can see.

The games are best played in a dark room, but even with a little light they still work and you can see the targets on the wall. 

We had a bit of trouble getting 2 players to work, but once it did the kids had a blast. They went head to head, mainly because we couldn't get co-op to work But after about 5 games the red gun stopped registering hits on the targets. We tried everything to get it working again, but so far no luck. I think it might have to do with the base falling and the cord being jerked out of it more than once, but we still use the blue gun and just take turns beating each others scores.


You can purchase the ProjeX Projecting Arcade Game at Target, Walmart, and the ProjeX website.

The game runs around $49.99 though I have seen it on sale at Walmart for $39.98
