Aphrodite knows better than anyone how the heart works. Just don't ask her to figure out her own.

She's been away from Olympus for weeks, which wasn't near long enough for her move on from everything that happened, to get past the betrayal and loss. She has no idea what she's walking into when she gets back other than a new competition, this time against Artemis. The goddesses have never been friends, but now they have more in common than ever, though they'd rather face eat ambrosia straight than admit it.

Artemis can't help but be smug. Her player, Josie, is a private investigator who's lost more than she's won. Every waking moment is consumed by her fire to catch the man who killed her partner, and when Jon comes back into town after leaving her without a word, it's more than she can handle. She'll never let him in. Not again.

But Jon only did what he thought was right, and he'll do anything he can, give her everything he has to give to prove that he can be trusted with her heart again.

With Adonis gone and the threat of Ares around every corner, Aphrodite's past presses on her, leaving her more alone than she's ever been. She can't help wondering if she'll ever escape, and how much pain she'll endure before the whole ordeal is behind her.

TEASER LOVE!

UtopYA 2014: A Recap


Hi everyone!!
Well, it has been a week since UtopYA 2014 has ended and I have been going through pics and trying to put together this post just so you guys can know how awesome this conference is...
So, I figured the best way to fill you guys in on all this fabulousness is to just start from day one and tell you everything...LOL!!!

So, upon arriving, it's like a family reunion.  You meet up with friends that you haven't seen in a year (more or less) and that's when the screaming begins...YES...there is screaming, squealing, hugs...just any type of excited emotion you can think of is pouring out of you...
Hence the amount pf pictures being taken now...Yes, we must have those memories solidified so that we can always treasure these moments..
So, starting on Thursday and all the way until Sunday...I was getting as many pics with my friends as possible...
Check out the amazing people I was able to see...
 Pictured: Carlyle Labuschagne, Starla Huchton, Michelle Warren, Lila Felix, Heather Lyons, Teal Haviland, Rachel Harris, Heather Self, & Bailey Ardisone
 Pictured: Jackie McPherson, Heather King, Lisah Stephens, Candace Selph, 
Jessica @LovinLosLibros, & Val @Stuckinbooks

That was just a fraction of the awesomeness that was there by the way....

Now Thursday evening I was given such an honor by the amazing Janet Wallace to be able to dine with our keynote speakers for the conference.  I was extremely excited and as you can see it was a beautiful place to dine...


After choosing the table in which I would sit at, I had the esteem company of fellow blogger Toni @Mybookaddiction, Janet Wallace, her husband, Katie Cook and the wonderful Sylvia Day.  Yes, my nerves were crazy...but it was beyond FANTASTIC!! Between the fabulous dinner and conversation it will definitely be one of those nights you will never forget. OH...and check out this delicious dessert that was served...Mmmmm....To die for!!!

And yes, to wrap up the awesome dinner evening, the awesome Sylvia Day posed for pics...Words cannot describe how memorable this night was...

But, it wasn't completely over...As soon as dinner finished I ran downstairs to see if I could catch up on the Reader Appreciation Party hosted by the Marvelous Tiffany King, Quinn Loftis, Carol and Adam Kunz, and Jennifer Armentrout (who couldn't make it b/c of the craziness of the airlines)...
This party was epic and they had games, prizes, and of course cupcakes...
Just ask Quinn and Tiffany how good those cupcakes were...(they had icing everywhere..LOL)

So, day one ended and I headed to the room to chill.  So much to do and I knew Friday would be non-stop...
I had a fab roomie this year...Jackie @SatedFaery...Thanks Jackie for rooming with me!! Major shout out to you!!!

Ok...so Friday begins and we begin as always meeting together to hear announcements, win prizes and hear from the keynote speakers.  


Janet started it off right with music and getting everyone pumped for the day...
Our keynote speaker was Sylvia Day and she packed in an amazing speech that riddled the guests with informative advice and interesting experiences.

After this, we all headed out to catch some of the awesome panels that were offered as well as head in to the exhibitor rooms to see some of our favorite authors...
Check it out...

Here is Nely Cab with her award winning Table..Yep she won Best Swag and Best Decorations...(yes, she had some cool swag...)


Later on Friday evening, there was a huge FAN INVASION author signing...
Check out the authors that were here....

It was a lot of fun and people were lined up eager to see their favorite authors...

So, for me...I was completely exhausted and checked out for the night...

Saturday has now rolled around and as we all meet together this morning, our keynote speaker comes in and again, delivers a phenomenal speech that totally captivates the audience...
Meet Gennifer Albin, author of the Crewel series and Catching Liam...


Directly afterwards, Gennifer was meeting and signing... Heather and I jumped in together to get our picture made...Just loved meeting her...

After this the level of my nerves skyrocketed because I was about to be on my first panel...Blog Your Face Off...I seriously thought I could puke...But, I have to say that I felt it went very well and so much was learned during our hour...

Blog Your Face Off Panel: Heather Smiddie (moderator), Michelle Miller (author), Tess Watson (author), me, & Toni @MyBookAddiction
 The awesome crowd for the panel...(I see you Heather :D)

Once the panel was over...I could finally breathe and time passed hanging with my amazing friends...
The Beta Babes with Rha Babe...
(Heather, Jackie, Misty, Me, Candace & on the phone is Lisa!!)
 The Awesome Annie Hargrove and Mary Smith  
 The fabulous Lindsay Paige


The Awesome Jordan Deen

 My girls: Heather & Jackie..
I have to add...Flat Ian arrived and seemed to stop the show...Heather here giving us a show of his hotness...
But...UtopYA offered us a few live bodied models too...And lets just say that you could be having a conversation with someone and BAM hotness walks by...
Check out one of those moments here...
 I whisper to Jackie to let me get a pic of her so this way the model can be in the pic...Jackie steps it up and pssst's him...
 Yes, it was funny to see that we wanted a pic of him...But he was awesome and decided to pose for a pic...
So everyone, meet Jesse Daniels, cover model...

The last thing to come is the awards ceremony that night...
 Janet welcoming everyone..
 Katie Cook hosting the awards...
 Heather and I 
 Annie and I
 Myself, Bailey, Mary, & Candace
 Back: Jackie, Toni, Candace
Front: Me, Starla, Mary
Everyone dressed up and looked BEAUTIFUL!!!
Having fun...
 Me and Nely Cab
  Me and Lila Felix
Me and Heather....

So, as you can see there was so much to do and so many people to see...
Being able to hang out with some of the most amazing people I know is priceless...
While there are some that I didn't get to spend as much time with as I would have wanted, being able to see Mary, Lindsay, Bailey (and hubs), Candace (and Jason), Annie, Toni, Nely, Misty, Carol, Adam, Heather, Quinn, and so many more....
Heather: Thank you...thank you for being YOU...When I look back on UtopYA 2014, my most fondest memories have you wrapped up in them...
Jackie: Thank you for being an awesome friend and roomie!! WOOT!! We had some awesome times!!

So, now that this year is over...Plans for next year are already under way...

BLOG TOUR: Little Black Book by Tabatha Vargo & Melissa Andrea






My name’s Sebastian Black, and I want to buy you. I could have any woman I want, but I choose you.
NO RELATIONSHIP, JUST SEX.

Here’s my offer…
I’ll put your name in my LITTLE BLACK BOOK, and when I want you, I’ll call you. When I call, you’re going to come, in more ways than one. It will be mutually pleasurable for both of us.

There are only two rules:
DON'T EVER DENY ME.
DON'T FALL IN LOVE.

If you do either, I’ll remove you from my book and payment stops.

Do we have an understanding?













Tabatha Vargo
Tabatha is a sweet tea sippin', front porch sittin' kind of girl from South Carolina. She loves old, historical anything, wind chimes, and all things romantic. She is the mother of an 8 y/o rockstar/princess and the wife of her very own Prince Charming.
When she isn't writing, she's texting book ideas to herself.

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author, Melissa Andrea-
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I'll try.
Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn't be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter's will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado -but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don't have a big family, but I'm close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I'm very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)
