Bookmate and Top Reads
As much as I try to stay in the loop with social media sometimes life gets in the way and I need to pull back. This past spring was super busy between book signings, writing my new friends to lovers Hot Shot Romance book titled Off Limits, reading, spending time with my family and moving. I love staying busy, but I love interacting with my readers just as much so I hate feeling like I haven't been in touch with you all.
Now that my kids and I are settled into our new place, I'm getting back into the swing of rewrites/edits and reading even more! I've read so many amazing books so far this year and have recently learned of a new book subscription site called Bookmate. Bookmate works as a community as well as a reading platform, kind of like a social media - with reviews, quotes, likes, etc. It resembles Goodreads where you can make bookshelves, write reviews, add favorite quotes and also has something special for every language!! There are close to a million books on Bookmate, therefor you're sure to find your next book boyfriend there, and an app for every device so you'll never have to be without! I'm really enjoying this site so far and think it's worth checking into! You can get a free month trial when you subscribe and right now I have a promo code AMANDA MAXLYN that allows you to read books for FREE for a limited time! If you have yet to read my books, make sure to use my code and visit my landing page to read all three for free.

There are no amount of words to describe what this book did to me. I still have a book hangover from it. Jewel E. Ann is one of my favorite authors and this book proves why. Read it. Embrace it.

I devoured this book. This is the first in a three book series and trust me when I tell you they're worth it! I can't give this book and series enough praise. I didn't want it to end. Kaidan Rowe is one bad ass book boyfriend!
“We have to face difficulties to find out what our true strengths are. How we come back from failure is a very valuable test.”
What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.
Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?

"One day I was going to wake up and realize that in my desperate escape from the pain in the present, I'd let the future pass me by."
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience. “You’re pregnant.” “It’s a boy.” “Your son needs a heart transplant.” Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Lies. Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun. Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky. “He’s gone.” For ten years, the darkness consumed me. In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise. “Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”
