The Will (The Magdalene Series) by Kristen Ashley


We are so excited to announce that The Will, the first book in The Magdalene Series will release TODAY!!!

Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant.

While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia. There was nothing disguised about Jake. Including the fact he made a habit of making very bad decisions about who to give his love.

But for Josephine and Jake, there was one person who adored them. One person who knew how to lead them to happiness. And one person who was intent on doing it.

Even if she had to do it as her final wish on this earth.

You can find it at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

I can't say enough good things about this book! It is honestly one of my favorite Kristen Ashley reads. We all know her alpha males and what to expect from them but this book brought a little more. Yes, Jake is ALL alpha male but he is also compassionate and freaking WONDERFUL!! He will not give up on Josephine and is there for her every step of the way. Kristen Ashley had me in tears (happy tears) by the end of the book, that's how great it was and I wanted to start all over and read it again. Both Jake and Josephine are in their 40's and have experienced life's ups and downs. We all know how great Kristen Ashley's writing is and she doesn't disappoint with this on, but lets face it, she NEVER disappoints! She is my go to author, my all time favorite and I can and have read her books over and over again. But don't take my word for it, read it for yourself and check out everything else by this Awesome lady!

Song of the Fireflies by J.A. Redmerski

EXCELLENT BOOK!! I love the authors writing style. I really enjoyed The Edge of Never, I didnt care for The Edge of Always but Redmerski picked right back up and landed on my love list with Song of the Fireflies.

Redmerski is brilliant at taking a dark subject and making it into a beautiful book. The conflicts that the characters faced on the book only helped to build a stronger bond with each character. It's almost like they aren't fictional people but people I actually know. It takes a lot to get a bond that strong from a book, but Redmerski excels in that aspect of her writing.

When I reached the ending I kind of expected it. I'm not sure if was because it a bit similar to the ending of The Edge of Never or if I just knewin my gut what was going to happen. Either way, it was excellent. I know it is difficult to write anything that is fully original, it seems most books are similar to each other from many different authors. Redmerski does a brilliant job of making this one not so similar to other works that are out there and she kept me as a reader entertained and ready for more.
