We are so excited to share Monica Murphy's cover for her upcoming sexy contemporary romance, OWNING VIOLET, coming from Random House Bantam. Check out how gorgeous it is!


The Fowler sisters are New York City’s darlings, heiresses to the Fleur Cosmetics Empire. Quickly put up on a fame hungry pedestal only for the media to lie in wait, eager to tear them down, these three very different young women soon find love in the most unexpected places…

OWNING VIOLET coming December 2!

Violet Fowler is the good sister. She works hard at her family’s cosmetics company, is faithful to her boyfriend and never causes any trouble. Until Zachary disappoints her yet again with a promotion that will take him to London—and away from her. His leaving sets a new fire within her. What’s the point in being so good when no one else ever is?

Someone within Fleur Cosmetics wants that London promotion and will do anything to get it, including throwing temptation in the path of the not-so-faithful Zachary. Ryder McKay came from nothing and has fought every step of the way to his position at Fleur. And now the mysterious charmer has set his sights on Violet. If it worked for Zachary, it could work for him.

Seducing the good Fowler sister is easy. What Ryder doesn’t count on is how much Violet makes him feel. What started out as revenge soon becomes something deeper. Can Ryder go through with his plans to deceive Violet? Or is he only deceiving himself?

 Keyanna Sanders is about to get everything she could ever wish for on her 18th birthday: a hot guy who’s really into her, the sports car she’s always dreamed of owning, and the party of a lifetime that no one will forget any time soon.

But before long, she’ll understand these wishes are more than a coincidence, and that they come at a steep price. Keyanna is more than just an average high school senior, her best friend is more than the innocent boy next door, and her sudden good fortune isn’t just by chance. When her estranged father suddenly re-enters her life, she’ll have to decide who to trust, and whether or not the man she loves has become the enemy.
 Jen Naumann grew up in southern Minnesota as an addict of such flicks as Indiana Jones and The Goonies until she discovered John Hughes, and spent her high school days locked away writing love stories with a sci-fi twist. Married to a farmer in southern Minnesota, she tries to follow the madness of her four active children while balancing an imagination that never shuts down. As the author of CHEATING DEATH, SHYMERS, AND PARANORMAL KEEPERS, she writes stories with strong female leads who have a good sense of humor and tend to fall in love despite their better judgment.

Book Review: King of Forgotten Clubs by Jennifer Recchio

Title: King of Unforgotten Clubs (Queen of Broken Hearts #2)
Author: Jennifer Recchio
Genre: YA, Romance

 There’s two hours left before Pak Higgins’ paper on the psychology of needs is due. Two hours to figure out what he needs in his life. Is it the girlfriend that dumped him for being too distant? The friends he’s barely talking to anymore? Or maybe it’s the running girl who crashed through his window at three in the morning with a desperate plea for help.

It’s definitely not the parents who tried to leave him in a boarding school in France or the money he walked away from to cut himself off from them.

But needing is a funny thing. Sometimes it’s the ones you want to run from that you need the most.

King of Forgotten Clubs is a sequel to Queen of Broken Hearts

*synopsis from Goodreads 
 I really had such high hopes for this book.
Sadly, it hasn't lived up to what I expected of it.
It's so much worse.

Pak Higgins is a teen who had broken up with his girlfriend, and, a few days after, stumbles upon a whole new level of trouble. Along with that trouble, was another girl. A girl, who apparently, stole his pants. And that is when their adventure begins.

The plot was going in several directions that my head was spinning in circles right up to the end. The scenes were jumping from one to the other, with little established ground as to the sudden changes in location or the character's decisions.

I was really trying to see what was the matter with the main character but all I ended up with was "What's his problem really?"

Overall, the idea that the author (I think) intends to tell is really good. But, the way that the author tried to express it was all over the place. At the end, all I got was a big glob of details that are thinly connected to each other, mixed up, and all you get in the end is a bowl of confusion.
Jennifer Recchio is a ghostly apparition who can only communicate through her enchanted mac book. Her spirit is rumored to reside somewhere in Southern Indiana, but no public sightings have yet been reported. 

  Upon reaching the age of 22 she accidentally earned a chemistry degree. She's sure it's still around here She may or may not enjoy playing Dungeons and Dragons, eating Cheez-itz, and listening to musical soundtracks.
