In My Mailbox 126

This meme was started by the fabulous Kristi who was inspired by Alea. Check out their blogs for more information. All summaries are from the book jackets unless otherwise stated.

As I had a blog tour stop for David Massey’s Torn last Sunday, this is my post for the last two weeks.

For review:

Beautiful Disaster – Jamie McGuire

Abby Abernathy doesn’t drink or swear and she works hard. Abby believes she has buried her dark past, but when she arrives at college, her dreams of a new beginning are quickly challenged by the university’s walking one-night stand.

Travis Maddox, sexy, built, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs – and wants – to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight club, and his days as the notorious college Lothario.

Intrigued by Abby’s resistance ot his charms, Tracvis tricks her into his life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain celibate for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time.

Eiither way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match. Or that this is the start of an obsessive, intense relationship that will lead them both into unimaginable territory...

I’m both curious and wary of reading this, but we shall see! Thanks, S&S!

When It Happens to You – Molly Ringwald

betrayal comes it take smany forms. A husband’s betrayal of a wife, a mother’s betrayal of her son, a woman betrayed by the loss of her soulmate.

When it...
          comes it will take you by surprise. But it will happen. And...

When it happens...
          everything will change. You may not know it now but...

When it happens to you...
          you will understand.

Thanks, S&S! I loved Molly in The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles so I’m looking forward to reading this.

Revived – Cat Patrick

The world fades to nothing, and before I have the chance to think another thought...I’m dead.

My name is Daisy West  and my whole life is a lie.

I have died five times. I’ve been Revived five times. With each revival comes a new name, a new town...a new life.

But this time I won’t let myself die. This time, I’ve found a love that I can’t let go. This time, I’m going to make my life my own.

Thanks, Electric Monkey!
