Author: Amanda Risucci
Genre: Fiction, Romance, Suspense
Blurb:
Lies, deceit and destruction seem to be the only thing plaguing the lives of these few people. Anna May does her best in life to get by without getting hit in the face by reality but that’s being made difficult by her best friend, Lauren and Sean, Lauren’s fiancé. Lauren is what you call a flaky, flighty, needy human being with only one mission in her life. Get whatever she wants and she doesn’t care who she hurts in the meantime including her fiancé Sean. Sean loves her more than anything in the world and she could care less. Anna May and Lauren work at The Purple Elephant night club dancing on bar tops in short shorts and tall boots and there is where she met Vincent the new bar back. The second they laid eyes on each other she was hooked on him and left Sean out to dry. Anna May did her best to comfort him but as much as she tried she couldn’t talk him off the ledge and eventually he lost it. Stalking is the best term for the way he was but not only was he stalking Lauren but was coming after Anna May as well. Anna May did her best to protect her friend but is having trouble protecting herself. The only axe in the middle of all this horror is everyone’s real feelings, mostly Anna May’s feelings for Sean. She was in love with him and she couldn’t deny it. So the real question is, is lying really worth the pain? The pain of the truth?
My name is Amanda Risucci and I’m a simple human most of the time. I was born in West Palm Beach FL and I’ve been here my whole life. I’ve been writing since I could talk and that is my only real passion in the world, the thing I love most in life and nothing can take the place of words on a page for me. I like to read, paint and watch YouTube videos when I’m not writing but there never seems to be enough hours in the day for everything. I still live in West Palm Beach and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m very aware of that moment when the truth must come out. Truth is always a good thing to stick to, but not all truths are good. Not all truths make things shinny and new wiping out all of the depravity. The bad will always be there but honesty is what makes people think about their actions and how they can be fixed. Some cases are different though. The truth hurts but the wrong most of the time disappears after the truth is revealed, however sometimes as much as we try to deny it the hurt still remains. The art of keeping secrets is very difficult when the secret you’re keeping is from the person you love. I happen to be in that position right now with my best friend and her fiancé. I’m the one in the middle, the secret keeper and I hate my job and right now was my moment to quit this part of my job. But there is always that one. That one secret you have to keep because it happens to be one of your own. So here I am sitting on Sean’s couch getting ready to tell him of Lauren’s betrayal and my own. To be honest I’m not sure how well this is going to go, for both of us. The art of secret keeping should be a dying art if you ask me. The only thing left to do now is do what I do best, give a hug, a really big hug.
  I reached out and embraced him knowing internally that he would hate me for what I was about to tell him. I held him in my arms tightly taking in the wonderfully enticing smell of his cologne, as I always did. I couldn’t hold back the truth any longer and now was the time to let it out, even if he despised me for it.
“She cheated on me didn’t she?” He asked, lowly in my ear. My eyes went wide in surprise and I went over what he just said to make sure it actually happened. I pulled away from him, but still lightly had my hands on his shoulders. I looked down at him sitting on the couch looking into his captivating but lonesome eyes. I have been in love with Sean Alexander since we met in high school. I hated to tell him that my best friend, his fiancé, was cheating on him. But I had to.
“How did you-, yeah she did.” I said, guilt behind my voice.
“How could Lauren do this to me?” He asked staring up at me with his wounded hazel eyes. I loved his eyes and I hated to see them in pain, hated to see him in pain.
“I’m sorry. I wanted to tell you before but I couldn’t, she’s my best friend and I couldn’t betray her.” I confessed.
“Then why are you telling me now?” He asked. I looked away from his face and down at my hands. Linked together tightly I could feel the uneasiness sinking into my stomach making it impossible to open up my mouth.
“Anna May?” He breathed my name and a chill went up my spine. I raised my head slowly, our eyes meeting. I took a deep breath. Readying myself.
“I’m telling you now because I don’t want to lie to you anymore. Yes I knew about it and I know that makes me a horrible person for not telling you, but when we were on the phone last week and you asked me what was wrong with her? Why she would leave you like that? You needed to know. It wasn’t fair to you.” I continued to confess, feeling anxious I got off the couch to stand in front of him. Trying to make my point. “She pissed me off this week! She’s been doing nothing but using me; my car, my house so she could be with her new “man friend”! She knew it was the only way she could see him! She didn’t even think about me or you!” I ranted louder feeling my skin getting hot and sweat starting to bead on the back of my neck.
“I wasn’t going to hide it anymore. I can’t take it.” I looked down at the old brown carpet as my voice grew louder with disdain for my friend’s actions.
“Wow.” He said simply. I looked back up at him seeing his wonderful face being bathed in the purple black- light illuminating from the flat screen T.V mounted on the wall. His thin “Guy Fawkes mask” looking go-tee shining with the light. I began to imagine running my fingers along his facial hair, taking in every feeling underneath my fingertips, wondering what it must feel like. Afraid of getting lost in my imaginations it was time to come back to reality.
“You’re not mad that I hid it?” I asked, picking my jaw up from the floor.
“No, of course not. Trust me you’re not the one I’m mad at right now.” He said.
“Sean.” I breathed.
“I should probably be more surprised than I am though, Right?” He asked, and I had nothing to say.
“Think about it. She hasn’t talked to me in days and I know it wasn’t because she was mad at me. Damn, I had a feeling it was going down like this. I gave her everything!” He continued to rant loudly. I sat back down next to him. “I gave her my heart, I gave her a ring, and I gave her this house!! And this is what I get? I loved her and she throws it in my face!! Tell me. What did I do wrong?” He asked loudly. Being put on the spot my face got hot and my words were sitting my throat. I spat the first thing I could think of out of my mouth.
“You didn’t do anything wrong.” I said knowing that it sounded so lame, but I continued.
“You didn’t do anything. SHE did everything wrong. She was in love with you and all of a sudden she’s not. Why? Because once new man strolled into town she had something else to ogle at work.” I said knowing I didn’t mean it. It was just my jealousy talking.
“This is a nightmare.” He breathed the words solemnly as he laid back against the couch rubbing his face with his hands. I admired his hands for a second,- large, strong, with the little green veins popping out. I wanted to hold them. Make him feel better.
“I’m sorry.” I said looking away from him. We sat in silence for a while.
            We spent the next two hours talking about it and I told him everything. Everything I knew, everything she said to me, and everything that happened between Lauren and her man friend. It didn’t feel good to do. Lauren has been my best friend since the beginning of high school. She has always been there for me. In turn, I was there for her, no matter what happened. After a while of knowing her, I felt I had to take care of her because she had a horrible, horrible home situation. So I took care of her. When she came to me with the ring on her finger screaming at my door with joy, I just wanted to be happy for her. I didn’t want to tell her she was crazy for wanting to get married at 18. If that was what she wanted then I was going let her have it. I only wanted her to happy. I had no idea it would end like this. In dirt and shambles. As her best friend, I stood by her side, even though she knew I didn’t like this thing she had going with Vincent and as her best friend I don’t think I’m supposed to fall for her fiancé. I was in love with him since we met in Spanish class freshman year and she can never know. That will be the one thing that I keep from her.
             We sat together on the couch, me getting as close to the other end as I could. Not to make him uncomfortable being too close. We didn’t say a word again for a while. I watched him run his hands through his perfect head of thick dark brown hair thinking about how it matched mine. I thought about my fingers in his hair and how it would feel. If he would run his through mine. My body erupted in goose bumps for a quick second, and as quick as it came, it left as he got up from the couch and walked towards the kitchen. His thin, well-built body, walking away from me. I wanted to reach out and touch him. Wanted to pull the green and black buttoned shirt from his body. How I loved him.
“You want a drink. I’m going have a drink.” He called out from the kitchen.
“What kinda drink?” I asked from the couch.
“I think you know.” He answered loudly.
“One for me too, please.” I said. Then I remembered that I don’t drink. I got up and walked towards the light coming from the kitchen. He was there pouring two glasses of straight vodka. I cringed, but didn’t want to seem like a wuss so I picked up the glass. He already knew I didn’t drink, so I wasn’t sure what I was trying to prove. He chugged his straight down, no phasing. I stared into my glass then took a sip. It burned my insides as it flowed down throat, I put the glass down on the blue plastic counter top. I didn’t need to prove anything anyway. I stared up at his beautiful, hurt face and fought the urge to hug him again.
“Are you going to be alright if I leave?” I asked hoping he would ask me to stay.
“I’m gonna be alright for now.” He said, stabbing my hope right in the chest.
“Okay. I’m going home. Call me if you need me?” I asked my hope poking its head out again.
“I will.” He answered and my hope drew a smile.

At thirty, Nora Kehoe is feeling pressured to settle down. Then, a passionate encounter with a childhood friend changes everything.

I really enjoyed this story. I also loved that the author talks about a lot of places and a culture I am familiar with. In a lot of ways, she made me feel like I was back home. I think we all have those friends that are like Nora and John, which for me, just makes it that much better. A people pleaser and a people saver, hmm, how is that not a match made in heaven. But, will they be able to make it right? Or, will she go for the resident bad boy? Turn some pages and find out.

Asleep Blitz- Krystal Wade


Title: Asleep

Author: Krystal Wade
Genre: YA Psychological Thriller
Publisher: Blaze Publishing
Blurb:
“To cure fear, you must use fear.”
Rose Briar claims no responsibility for the act that led to her imprisonment in an asylum. She wants to escape, until terrifying nightmares make her question her sanity and reach out to her doctor. He’s understanding and caring in ways her parents never have been, but as her walls tumble down and Rose admits fault, a fellow patient warns her to stop the medications. Phillip believes the doctor is evil and they’ll never make it out of the facility alive. Trusting him might be just the thing to save her. Or it might prove the asylum is exactly where she needs to be.
 This book is crazy! I was trying to figure out through the whole thing who was actually crazy, as well as what was real and what wasn’t. The way it is written is great. It will keep you guessing the whole time. Then again, maybe I am just dense. Either way, fantastical read.
Krystal Wade can be found in the sluglines outside Washington D.C. every morning, Monday through Friday. With coffee in hand, iPod plugged in, and strangers-who sometimes snore, smell, or have incredibly bad gas-sitting next to her, she zones out and thinks of fantastical worlds for you and me to read. How else can she cope with a fifty-mile commute?
Good thing she has her husband and three kids to go home to. They keep her sane.

The Carver Review- Jacob Devlin


Title: The Carver

Author: Jacob Devlin
Series Title: Order of the Bell
Genre: YA Fantasy/Fairy Tale Retelling
Publisher: Blaze Publishing
Blurb:
THE GIRL IN THE RED HOOD has been looking for her mother for six months, searching from the depths of New York’s subways to the heights of its skyscrapers . . .
THE PRINCE looks like he’s from another time entirely, or maybe he’s just too good at his job at Ye Old Renaissance Faire . . .
THE ACTRESS is lighting up Hollywood Boulevard with her spellbinding and strikingly convincing portrayal of a famous fairy. Her name may be big, but her secrets barely fit in one world . . .
Fifteen-year-old Crescenzo never would have believed his father’s carvings were anything more than “stupid toys.” All he knows is a boring life in an ordinary Virginia suburb, from which his mother and his best friend have been missing for years. When his father disappears next, all Crescenzo has left is his goofy neighbor, Pietro, who believes he’s really Peter Pan and that Crescenzo is the son of Pinocchio. What’s more: Pietro insists that they can find their loved ones by looking to the strange collection of wooden figurines Crescenzo’s father left behind.
With Pietro’s help, Crescenzo sets off on an adventure to unite the real life counterparts to his figurines. It’s enough of a shock that they’re actually real, but the night he meets the Girl in the Red Hood, dark truths burst from the past. Suddenly, Crescenzo is tangled in a nightmare where magic mirrors and evil queens rule, and where everyone he loves is running out of time.

This book is a really good Young Adult. Jacob Devlin does a retelling of some of our favorite fairy tales growing up. The way he tells it is so fresh and new, it makes age- old characters exciting again. I look forward to lots of new books from this author. If you have a young one, or even if you just like YA, consider giving him a chance.
When Jacob Devlin was four years old, he would lounge around in Batman pajamas and make semi-autobiographical picture books about an adventurous python named Jake the Snake. Eventually, he traded his favorite blue crayon for a black pen, and he never put it down. When not reading or writing, Jacob loves practicing his Italian, watching stand-up comedy, going deaf at rock concerts, and geeking out at comic book conventions. He does most of these things in southern Arizona.

Pino scowled over his mug, then let his mouth curve into a smile. The old Pietro was coming back to the surface. “Anyway, you’ll go? Look for my wife and your family?”
With a sigh, Pietro rubbed his face so hard his eyelids drooped. “Would you come with me?”
Pino wiggled his thumb: click, click, click, click. “Do you not hear my joints crackling?”
“Still?” Pietro rested his elbows on his knees. “What’s happening to you?”
Pino lowered his voice. “My guess is there’s some real dark stuff goin’ on back home. After all, we’re not supposed to be here, and I was once a . . . Well, you know. I’m afraid I won’t get very far out the door, if I can even move anymore in a week.”
Pietro drummed on his lap, shooting air through his teeth as he contemplated. “Fine. I’ll go. But I have a question. When do we tell Crescenzo who we really are?”
“I trust you’ll figure it out, Peter.” Pino winked. “After all, you were the boy who learned how to fly.”

I’ve always been an avid reader and writer, so when my best friends (three males who drive me closer to insanity daily) dared me to publish, in fact triple dared with no returnseys, I couldn’t say no – the forefits are always painful. Deciding to shelve all of the work I’d ever done and to and to start with a new project was my best idea though, at least I think so. After being on the brink of insanity many times, I’m delighted to confirm that I came out of it with my dignity still intact…..just!
I’m the daughter of diplomats who has lived all over the world and you’d be hard placed to figure out where my accent is from – it’s a Heinz 57 variety accent. My poor child has also picked up my accent and vocabulary, which is predominantly American I guess.
My projects so far include a contemporary romance series called the Providence Series and its subseries called Amity, an MC series that I’m excited about called Luthers Vengeance and also a paranormal series that I’m still planning out.
For now, though, it’s all about the romance……

I could see that they immediately recognized my last name. Right now I didn’t care what they were thinking, I just wanted Isla to wake up and to hold her.
“Okay Mr Montgomery, you may stay. Could you go and stand over there please,” the Doctor pointed towards the end of Isla’s bed. “You can still see her; we just need some space to do some small tests.”
Walking down where he’d pointed I watched as they took her blood pressure and pulse. Just as they were writing down the information her eyes started to flutter and slowly opened, looked around and then stopped on me. I couldn’t wait anymore and walked around to where the Doctor had been standing before he went to look at some of the monitors attached to her.
“Angel,” I bent over and kissed her forehead, inhaling the smell that was just Isla. God it felt so good to be close to her again, even the pain in my leg didn’t feel as bad around her.
I was so busy with my thoughts that I never saw the hand coming up towards my face until it slapped me harder than I thought her little hand could.
