The Kiss That Launched 1,000 Gifs Blog Tour + $25 Giveaway

Kiss that Launches 1000 gifts by sheralyn pratt

The Kiss That Launched 1,000 Gifs by Sheralyn Pratt

Each weekday from 2:00-4:00 p.m., Grace and Ashton cohost Battle of the Sexes, a radio program arguing the he-said/she-said issues of the day. Their fiery debates often have listeners wondering if there’s more to their relationship than just talk, even though Grace has been dating Phillip, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Perfect, since long before she ever met Ashton Miller.

Yet when news comes that Battle of the Sexes is on the bubble for cancellation, Grace and Ashton need to step up their efforts to engage their audience to keep the show alive. When a charity organization approaches them and proposes that the two of them kiss for a fund raiser, Grace and Ash agree to kiss for a good cause. A kiss is just a kiss, right?

~Rae's Review~

How adorable was this story! Kathy rec'd this to me on Goodreads and after seeing her thoughts on it, I just had to get my hands on it.  

Both Grace and Ashton are total spitfires and bounce off each other so easily that I could see why their talk show was really popular. I love the fact that each had their own relationship in the beginning. Most romances feature two single people who fight their attraction toward each other but after a nice dosage of my favorite channel's movies which feature their main characters in rocky relationships, I wanted more books to tackle this. Thankfully, Ms. Pratt's book did! This also features one of my fave tropes, enemies to loves, and with that trope mix plus the dichotomy of the relationships (romantic, work and then romantic again), I could see why Grace and Ashton were drawn to each other.

I love the fact that Grace was latina! I would have loved to have known what her culture was, but reading on I was able to put my own imagination into her character. At first Ashton turned me off with his obnoxiousness but as we come to find out, there is more to the surface of our hero and it really comes out later in the book when he has a serious talk with a listener concerned about her son. During that conversation, Frank and Grace weren't the only ones with their mouths open! I love that the characters jumped off the page and felt like real people.

There are some really fun and entertaining moments in this book. I loved Chapter Five because of how imaginative Ms. Pratt was in showing each of their instagrams. I can definitely tell she had fun putting it together! With the pop culture references, the social media mentions in how they worked and why they are needed, I couldn't help identifying with the characters and their world. I don't come across many romances that feature radio DJs so that was a refreshing change as well. I loved the banter not only between Grace and Ash but also between her best friend Esme. There were some really good lines I wanted to quote in my review but I had a hard time choosing just one.

This is a great introduction to Ms. Pratt's writing and I'll definitely be on the lookout to try her other works. I recommend this one!

Author Sheralyn Pratt
Sheralyn's first job was as a karate instructor, which taught her that practice does not make perfect; practice makes habit--good or bad. Martial arts also taught Sheralyn that a master is simply a person who can effortlessly do all the actions a beginner finds difficult or maybe even impossible.

Sheralyn has worked in many fields throughout her life, but her 12 years as a karate instructor have shaped how she does everything, including writing and mentoring. She likes to keep things light and fun, but she's also aware that life is journey and that if you're going to buy a book, your life should better for it.

So, fiction or nonfiction, know that each of Sheralyn's books are designed to take you to a new place. Maybe that book is designed to help you escape for a few hours, or maybe it's a book designed to teach you a new skill. Either way, Sheralyn hopes it's a good way. ;)

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Book Review ~ Who R U Really? ~ A Highly Recommended Read

Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly

Thea's overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She's living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really "gets" her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wan…
