SECOND SNOWFALL by Sarah Fisher Blog Tour & Giveaway !!

Second Snowfall
Sarah Fischer

Published by: Limitless Publishing
Publication date: July 4th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Last semester, Annabelle fell in love. There are just two problems. Jason is her best friend…and he’s already taken.
Refusing to break up a relationship, Annabelle resigns to love him from afar—until a certain hot firefighter walks into her life.
Kingsley is the perfect catch. Rich, attractive, with muscles to boot, and he only has eyes for Annabelle. But things get complicated when he clashes with Jason.
With tensions running high and emotions spiraling out of control, Annabelle finds herself torn between her love for Jason, and her new desire for Kingsley.
The longer Annabelle tries to hold on to both men, the more she gets tangled up in a web of lies, secrets, and chilling revelations.
Now, things have gotten worse and Annabelle must do something—before things get ugly…


Excerpt
Jason stood behind me and handed me the gun. “Okay, grab the gun but keep your finger away from the trigger. I’m going to hold your hands and adjust your grip.”
He smelled amazing and was still wearing the cologne I’d bought him. At this rate, I’d have to buy him a new one for his birthday in March. Then I shook my head and realized what was going on. This was not what Jason and I should have been doing. I tried to move, but he wasn’t letting me out.
“Annabelle, I don’t want you to be afraid of this. Just trust me, I’m not going to let anything happen to you. Don’t you believe me?”
I took a deep breath. I did trust him. There was nothing that could happen here at the gun range. Besides, I wouldn’t let it happen. Today was about Violet, and I also didn’t want to fight with Jason. If he thought I didn’t trust him or believe in him, then we would definitely be fighting.
“Yeah, of course I believe you. Let’s just get this over with.” I put the gun down so I could secure my earplugs in place. Then I picked up the gun again and Jason wrapped his hands around mine. He lifted the gun up and tried to adjust my aim.
“Okay,” Jason yelled, and moved my finger to the trigger. “So the gun still has the safety on. You won’t be able to fire. Try it.”
I did and nothing happened. I couldn’t pull the trigger all the way.
“While the safety is on, aim. See the little notch at the top? That’s what you use to aim. Match that up with where you want to hit. But keep both your eyes open.”
Nodding, I moved the gun slightly and aimed so that I’d get the poster guy straight in the nose.
“Great. Now I’m gonna drop my hands and hold your hips. This gun has a bit of a kick and I don’t want you falling on top of me.” His hands slid down my arms and rested on my hips. My shirt had slid up a little and I felt Jason’s fingers on my bare skin. It was like a blast of heat radiating through me. “Take the safety off, like Mike told you, then fire whenever you’re ready.”
“Okay, I’m ready.” I squeezed the trigger and was slammed back into Jason’s chest.
“Easy there, slugger, plant your feet and try again,” he shouted in my ear.
I placed the gun on the counter in front of me and kind of shook all over. Jason lifted his hands off me for a second but as soon as I stood still, he was there again. My shake had raised my shirt up even higher and now most of his hand was on my bare stomach. I took a deep breath and tried to ignore the feeling.
It wasn’t him I wanted, but I was just too sexually energized. Holding the gun was filling me with adrenaline and it had nothing to do with being this close to him or smelling the cologne I bought him. I needed to see Kingsley and get that dealt with. I nodded with that thought and aimed at the target again. I fired a couple more rounds, and this time, I didn’t fall into Jason.

Treading Water by Jessie G, Review Tour

Title: Treading Water
Series: Forgotten Soldier #2
Author: Jessie G
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2017

After devoting eighteen years of his life to the US Navy, Petty Officer First Class Shane Parker is struggling with the very real possibility of becoming unnecessary. If he doesn’t make Chief Petty Officer before his twenty—and it doesn’t seem likely that he will—he’ll be retired from active service and placed on the Fleet Reserve list until his mooring lines are officially cut forever. While it would all be very honorable and ceremonial, he simply wasn’t civilian material.
Before even swearing-in, Julian Brand knew he wasn’t cut out to be a soldier, but refusing wasn’t an option. Generations of Brand man made careers in the military and the expectation of every Brand son was to follow in those prestigious footsteps. Though the prospect of being rolled back dodged his every step, somehow he made it through boot camp and did his time. Six years after not reenlisting, Julian still struggles to find familial acceptance as he fights to live life on his terms.
On the surface, they couldn’t be more different, but when Jared Ramos calls, neither are capable of refusing. If they can find a way to work together, they might be able to save a wounded warrior and each other in the process.
NOTE: The first story in this series is a 6K word short story originally written for an anthology. While it's a different couple, I'm happy to provide that to reviewers as they have a brief appearance in the new book and are central characters to this benefit series.

Happily Ever Chapter - “Well-written story, strong characters.”

Bookobsessed - “Wonderful read”

Seeing Sean fall apart was something Shane wasn’t likely to forget. Never could he have imagined a single scenario that included this big, strong, strapping sailor curled up in his blankets sobbing. As Julian climbed back onto the bed, absorbing that pain as if it were his own, Shane feared he was the wrong man to help them. He was barely treading water and the overwhelming emotions coming off both men were like a rip tide threatening to pull him away.
Over the years, he heard Sean worry over his cousin’s emotional stability enough that he thought he was doing the right thing by offering Julian a safe place to vent. It wasn’t like his own emotions were in danger of getting involved—he only had a couple and none of them were tied up in a man he didn’t know. The same couldn’t be said for Sean. They were more than friends, more than the honorary brothers, and this breakdown had his own eyes itching in an alarming way.
Were those tears? It had been decades. For sure, never in his adult life. Not since…no, it was best not to think about that now. Talk about being useless. If he went down that path, Sean and Julian would be taking care of him.
A warm hand slid along his and the ease in which their fingers twined gave him pause. Cautiously, he looked over and found brown eyes filled with understanding and invitation. He had promised Julian he wouldn’t be alone and the quiet reciprocation had been nice, but nothing he expected to count on. Without consciously thinking about it, Shane found himself sitting on the edge of the bed. Though it wasn’t built for three grown men, he was able to wrap his arm around his little unit and was surprised how right it felt.
“We’re going to get through this, Sean. Will you let us take care of you?” Julian was still speaking when Shane felt Sean nodding against them.
For better or worse, they were in it together now and Shane refused to let them down no matter how uncomfortable it might get for him.

Wendy's Review: Loved this book so much!! An outstanding story with a tragic accident, crazy religious nutjobs, two cousins who are closer than brothers and a closeted military man. Seriously, what's not to love?? I love it when a book has a friends to lovers story. Shane was everything I love in Jessie's characters. He reminds me of Chris from her Sizzling Miami series, damaged but not broken. I wanted him to get his HEA, I needed it as much as he did, lol.  The chemistry between Shane and Julian heats up from the beginning and only gets hotter. I loved the interactions between Jared and Aiden, oh boy, I can't wait for that book.  Now to Sean, Julian's cousin, he was such a great character and the end of the book with that little tidbit JG snuck in there.  So wonderful :)



Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I'd begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: to be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it's a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With three series in the works and a full schedule of releases planned for the next two years, it's been amazing to have made this dream my reality. I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics, and happily ever after. I'm a lover of strong secondary characters, and series filled with families—biological or chosen. All are themes you'll find throughout my books.
