RELEASE BLITZ... The Silent Waters by Brittainy C. Cherry

Title: The Silent Waters
Series: Romance Elements #3
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre: Romance
 Release Date: September 22, 2016



Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises.

I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.

I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

Of moments.

(Book Three in the Elements Series. Complete Standalone.)

He’s never once seen her before even though they’ve shared a major but now that he has, he can’t not know her. As they’re friendship becomes stronger, Gannon starts to wonder if the direction his life is taking is pointing straight to her.

5 STAR REVIEW... Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen ***NEW RELEASE***

The first novel in a sexy new series featuring the hockey players of the Brooklyn Bruisers and the women who win their hearts—from the USA Today bestselling author of the Ivy Years series.

In high school they were the perfect couple—until the day Georgia left Leo in the cold... 

Hockey player Leo Trevi has spent the last six years trying to do two things: get over the girl who broke his heart, and succeed in the NHL. But on the first day he’s called up to the newly franchised Brooklyn Bruisers, Leo gets checked on both sides, first by the team’s coach—who has a long simmering grudge, and then by the Bruisers’ sexy, icy publicist—his former girlfriend Georgia Worthington.

Saying goodbye to Leo was one of the hardest things Georgia ever had to do—and saying hello again isn’t much easier. Georgia is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when a press conference microphone catches Leo declaring his feelings for her, things get really personal, really fast....

This Book Nerd Says: 

How I love this book let me count the ways!

Sarina Bowen continues to blow my mind with her amazing ability to create these worlds that I just lose myself in. And in Rookie Move where going to Brooklyn.
Leo Trevi (a familiar face for fans of Sarina's Ivy Years series) has made it into the big leagues; a true dream come true. Only that's not the only dream about to come true for him. On what is probably the most eventful day of Georgia's PR career, she comes face to face with the one guy she didn't expect to see in the Bruisers locker room, her ex boyfriend.
For Leo, Georgia may have been the girl to have broken his heart back on their graduation day but she is still the love of his life and his sights are set on getting her back, no matter what the cost.

A fantastic standalone read, the chemistry between Trevi and Georgia is palpable from the very beginning. It's worth noting that the connection between the two of them is so strong, it's clear that this is a second chance romance in which the first chance love story never really ended.

As much as I love Trevi (serious heart eyes going on over here) I am absolutely in love with Georgia. Not only does Sarina keep giving us these amazingly crafted book boyfriends. She gives us heroines that are full of both strength and substance. Ones that you not only admire on the pages but ones that you wish you could call up in real life. Georgia is now residing on the top of my favorites list. She smart, savvy, and driven; but above all that she is strong and it's evident in how she's forged ahead with her life despite all the things that could have threatened to pull her down.

I could go on and on about it but I don't want to give anything more away about the story. Just know that I love it from the first page to the very last word and I cannot wait until we get to visit this world again in Hard Hitter (especially because I think I have a slightly major crush on O'Doul).

Top Recommendation!

Dropping In smaller res
Title: Dropping In
Series: The Vert Series #3
Author: Kristen Kehoe
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 29


Malcolm Brady thought breaking his leg was the worst thing that could happen…until he saw who was waiting for him at the airport.

Almost six years ago, Malcolm walked away from the love of his life, because she was too young, and he was too scared. But no matter how much distance he put between them, Malcolm could never convince his heart that he had done the right thing. When an accident sidelines him from his professional skate career, it’s Nala waiting for him at the airport. It only takes one look for all of the feelings he’s kept locked away to break free, and suddenly, Malcolm has a new mission: to show Nala Jansen exactly how much he loves her.

Nala fell in love with Malcolm Brady before her young heart really understood what love was. Even when he left her to become a professional skater, she never stopped loving him, never stopped wanting him. And she told him one night—just like that. I love you. Instead of saying the words back, he walked away, and Nala started on a course that would forever change her life.

Now, almost six years after her bold confession and his rejection, they are thrust together, making memories from the past unavoidable, especially when new feelings bloom. Except, Nala won’t share everything from their time apart, and Malcolm won’t accept anything less.
When emotions are high, and truths come to light, the lovers have to decide if their future is strong enough to withstand their past.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This Book Nerd Says: 

To say I had been waiting on pins and needles for this book would be an understatement. 
Expectations EXCEEDED. 

Let's take a second to rewind back to when I fell in love with this series. It all started with  VERTICAL LINES. In the pages of that very first book I fell in love with Nala and Mal, and this book... their story... reminded me of all the reasons why and gave me dozens more. 
This is one of the absolute best second chance love stories I've read. 

Because of their unique circle of friends, these two haven't had years of total separation before being thrust together. Instead it explores a relationship that started off as friends with the spark of belonging way earlier. And it continues as that same friendship struggles to keep that undeniable pull between the both of them. Because of the interconnected story lines and characters, it takes zero time to get the angst going. I had highlighted about a dozen passages paragraphs in the very first few pages that got my emotions going on high.  I knew then that I was in for an unforgettable ride with them...

Continuing the beautiful theme of friendship and family, Dropping In is full of a reality that has moments of pain that only highlight the strength and beauty of this group's bond. But front and center we get Mal and Nala. 
It's quite impossible not to root for these two. 
Especially Nala. Gosh I love this girl to pieces. She is uniquely herself, beautiful in every way inside and out; but more than that she is so incredibly strong. Her character growth is remarkable as we get glimpses of her as a vulnerable girl to a young woman who finds strength in understanding forgiveness. 
Her personal life story has chapters that are so poignant it's palpable. 
I love her. I want her to be one of my best friends. 

And then there's Malcolm. 
Can I claim him as mine? Pretty please. I'm sure Brooks won't mind (too much).
I love them dark and broody.
But I love them more when they have a soft squishy heart at the center and from page one Mal is baring his heart for me Nala all over the pages and filling me with the uncontrollable urge to want to hug him. We get to pull back the layers and peek into his childhood and get a full and heartbreaking understanding of every scar he has carried into adulthood. And you are left just wanting to kiss him and make it all better. 

This is yet another book in this series I could go on and on and on about. Upon finishing it I was left with no words... just a heart that overflowed with feelings. A tinge of sadness that it was over had me ready to go back to the beginning and read it all over again, a little bit slower, soaking in every interaction, every bit of love from the pages. 

I said it before but I'm going to say it again. This series is a stand out. Kristin Kehoe crafted some absolutely amazing characters. Three very unique yet equally drool worthy book boyfriends that meet their match in outstanding, strong, independent, and free standing heroines. The friendship between Jordan and Nala (one of my favorite sub-plots in Dropping In) is a perfect example of my two favorites kick butt ladies doing what they do best. 
I'm going to wrap this review up because I could stay up here talking about this one for a whole lot longer. So instead, grab the book and read it for yourself so we can dish about it together!

This book is getting my stamp of prime book boyfriend material AND a book bestie nomination... oh and it's also getting 6 Stars!

I'll be over here holding out hope for another book or a spinoff *coughFELIPEorVALENTINAcough*

Happy Reading!!

About the Author
I started writing a long, long time ago. As with everything in life, it took me a while to figure out what genre I wanted to participate in. I write what many would commonly refer to as contemporary romance. I just call it life.

Although I began with the young adult when I published my first novel,  I quickly progressed to what I consider mature young adult and then New Adult. I write for my characters. I write them because they are people I see and feel and hear and I have a need to put them on paper. When I'm not writing for a character, I'm blogging about mommyhood, teacherhood, life, or just being a girl. Join my conversation sometime because I LOVE sharing with people. For updates, sneak peaks, and other info, join my mailing list at and visit my Facebook page. For fun pics of my daughter, dog, or anything else that hits my fancy, visit me on Instagram. For weird retweets and conversations, there's always Twitter. Happy reading. <3 Kristen
