‘Til We Meet Again by Stacey Kennedy

Ethan Thomas has spent years alone―forever trapped between worlds. Once a soldier in the Civil War, he’s now a ghost bound to a chaise lounge that once belonged to him. He’s spent centuries lingering in Savannah, Georgia, waiting to be saved…

Cassandra Cole is an interior designer hired to restore an old Victorian home. As she begins to furnish the house, strange happenings erupt around her. She suspects the house is haunted. Determined to find out, Cassie sets out to discover who the ghost is, why she feels a connection to him, and what she has to do to free him. The answers will surprise her in ways she never imagined.

From the Anthology Kissed From Beyond!

I recently discovered that I am currently in novella mode. I’m not sure I did it on purpose, but the last couple of freebie downloads that I acquired have been short and sweet. Turns out that sometimes short and sweet is perfect. In the case of ‘Til We Meet Again, it would be short, sweet and hot.

There wasn’t much time for character development in this book, but it didn’t keep you from feeling for either one of them. Cassandra’s compassion for Ethan and his situation was strong. I loved Ethan’s attraction to Cassandra and the ‘situation’ that kept him hanging around.. I’m not sure I was satisfied with the ending, but it was where the story needed to go, so I can’t argue with it, but *sigh*

All in all, ‘Til We Meet Again was a perfect bedtime read. If you’re looking for a quick, hot read, this one should fill the bill. Enjoy!

I received ‘Til We Meet Again from Amazon as a Free Download on April 5, 2012.

TGIF at GReads – Book Blogging Influences – 4-20-12

Who’s ready for the weekend?!  GReads is and to celebrate she has introduced a new(ish) feature for Fridays to re-cap the week’s posts & to propose a question for her followers.  I don’t always participate in every week’s question. There are a couple of Friday memes that I regularly follow, but the question posed usually determines whether or not I play along. Given this week’s question, how could I refuse? Who doesn’t have a lovable Book Bully they’d love to blame… err.. uh… thank for adding so many reads to your already overflowing TBR pile? 😉

Book Blogger Influences: Has there been a particular book blogger who’s influenced what you read? Share with us a review/book blog that convinced you to pick up a certain book.

Needless to say, this is not going to be a one answer question. You’ve seen my eclectic list of books on my review list. There is no way that all that was influenced by just one loving bully. So who influences me the most?

At the top of this awesome list, I have to name the very first person who influenced me through Twitter and her blog. She is solely responsible for starting my obsession and ultimate love of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I hemmed and hawed over reading these books for a very long time. They looked like books that would interest me so I started reading reviews and stumbled upon Kelly’s at Reading the Paranormal. Her review of Dark Lover is what made me decide to finally pick up the books. That was all it took. She’s even turned me into somewhat of a bully myself where these books are concerned. Rehvenge would be so proud. 🙂 There are too many more books to mention that she has lovingly nudged me to read, but this series was the first.

Next on my list of loving bullies has to be Amanda at On a Book Bender. Like Kelly, I have much to blame… err… uh… thank her for. The top of this list of influences is Thea Harrison’s Elder Races series. I had never even looked at these books before Amanda mentioned them to me. Just like with the BDB books, all it took was picking up the first book, Dragon Bound, and that was it. *sigh* Now I’m right along with her waiting not so patiently for the next books to come out. She’s not alone in her push to get me to read these books, but Amanda was the first (and possibly the loudest) to recommend them to me.

My latest obsession in the PR genre is with the Lords of the Underworld. I actually have two loving bullies to thank for this one. Both Ashley at Smash Attack Reads and Isa at Book Soulmates convinced me to start reading this series. Now I’m hooked and there is no turning back. Who knew a bunch of demon possessed Lords could be so…. well… Just pick up The Darkest Night and you’ll totally understand.

I know that I’ve listed mainly series but other books have ended up on my bookshelf and on my Kindle because of many other bloggers. Even Ginger at GReads has had her hand in pushing me to read books I may not have otherwise considered. She’s actually responsible for getting me to request my first book from NetGalley.  If not for that recommendation, I might have missed out Graffiti Moon, and that would have been a tragedy. Aobibliosphere has not only introduced me to some great books, but also to some amazing Indie authors. His influence, recommendations and amazing giveaways actually did a lot to help me decide to start my own blog.

There are so many more bloggers out there that I check out before I pick up a book I’m not sure about. The list is endless, so if you’re not mentioned here, it’s not because I don’t love you and value your opinions. Happy reading!
