I am an avid reader and mom of 4 great kids. In my spare time you can always find me reading a book. I love to read . I have read alot of books . I use to read all paperbacks and hard cover books , then about 1 1/2 yrs ago I bought a Nook Color E -Reader and things have not been the same since . In the first yr of owning my Nook I read roughly about 200 Books . YES it is true . My E- Reader was the best thing I EVER bought for myself and I am so Happy that I made the decision to buy one . Now I own a Kindle Fire HD and I Love it even more then my Nook Color. As far as What I like to read . I like All kinds of Genres . Some of my favorite ones are Contemporary Romance , Young Adult , Paranomal , True Stories, and Erotica . To me a great book involves a Great story line , if A book can hook me in the first few pages I am in heaven and will read it through . I have not found many books that I have not followed through with and read . I do LOVE a great love story in a book , one that makes me smile , laugh when something is funny , makes my heart race, my heart stop , makes me cry . I love when there is a happy ending . I also love Alpha males , the ones that got attitude , hot looking, masculine , can keep their woman in line , protective , possessive , but also have a big heart at the same time .

Walking Disaster: A Novel

Walking Disaster - Jamie McGuire I was really looking forward to this Book , I so wanted to see Travis’ POV on the whole thing. I was a little disappointed that there was not more to Travis side of things . I had re-read Beautiful Disaster before reading this one , and I felt like I was just reading the same book again but from Travis’ POV , most of it was the same . Don’t get me wrong I am VERY happy that we got some more of Travis , I just wish it had been a LITTLE BIT More , with more things we did not read about in Beautiful Disaster. "I know you deserve better than me. You think I don't know that? But if there was any woman made for me...it's you. I'll do whatever I have to do, Pidge. Do you hear me? I'll do anything."One of the best things about this book was we got to see Travis when he was younger and when he had to say goodbye to his mom. That was great to be able to understand more of why Travis felt and acted like he did. "One of these days you're going to fall in love, son. Don't settle for just anyone. Choose the girl that doesn't come easy; the one you have to fight for, and then never stop fighting. Never"—she took a deep breath—"stop fighting for what you want. And never"—her eyebrows pulled in—"forget that Mommy loves you. Even if you can't see me." A tear fell down her cheek. "I will always, always love you."I loved how we got to get to know his Brother’s and dad a little bit more in this book as well . Dad laughed once and nodded. “And your young lady?”I shrugged. “She’s not exactly mine, Dad”Dad winked. “Yet?”Book Blurb:Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster. Can you love someone too much?Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.I loved Getting more Travis , and I loved the epilogue, I can not wait to see more of Travis’ Brothers in upcoming books  “I wouldn’t let anything happen to you Pigeon”ARC provided by Atria Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
