All Lined Up Monthaversary + Giveaway

Ahh I have a treat for you today dear readers! As you know I am part of Cora Carmack's Street team!
Well today it is Friday the 13th, and the Monthaversary of All Lined Up's release! I can not believe that it has already been a month!

Now in case you are new to the Cora club and have not read All Lined Up, you can read the synopsis below.

And if you must have more after reading the synopsis. You can also read about the characters that were provided leading up to the release of All Lined Up! 

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.

But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.

Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated.
Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter.
And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.

Carson McClain (The Leading Man)

Dallas Cole (The Leading Lady)

Decent by Kallie Ross Launch + Giveaway


I know its a day late , because the release day was June 9th. However, last week I was asked by the awesome KP from Inkslinger, if I wanted to read this book Decent. It's by her good friend the Mrs. Kallie Ross. I love reading new books and am a fan of YA (Young Adult.) Not to mention it was a Sci-fi  book, so of course I said yes!And I am about 3/4 of the way through the book and I am very much intrigued the the story lines, relationships, and how everything fits together.

Mrs. Ross definitely has a way of getting the reader's attention and I have not been dissapointed. 
So without further adieu I give you the offical synopsis of Decent by Kallie Ross.

Seventeen year old Ollie Miller is ready to leave all of her hurt feelings behind, but moving on seems impossible while living next door to her ex-best friend, Mateo. When curious earthquakes begin to shake and rip open the foundation of her small town, the ground becomes as unsteady as her feelings for him. When they fall, they fall hard…

Ollie’s disastrous attempt to save Mateo’s brother from falling into a curious chasm results in their descent into a cavernous wonderland. Ollie, Mateo, Jesse, and Alexis search for a way back home, and encounter a mysterious tribe of natives. Gabriel, the next in line to lead his people, is granted permission to guide them to the surface. On their treacherous journey, an overzealous elder threatens all of their lives, because he can’t risk them exposing his people, or the power he wields. The group discovers ancient secrets, unexpected truths, and uncharted feelings. Ollie must find a way out or risk being stuck in the caves forever—or worse, dead.

Now that we have read a little bit about the book, let's get to know a little bit about the author. That only seems fair right?! Right!

Over time my love for learning gravitated toward studying conspiracy theories and contradictions in our culture. My conclusions have ignited a passion to write compelling young adult fiction that incorporates legend, conjecture, fantasy, and conviction.

I love being a wife, mother, friend, writer, and teacher. I began teaching high school English in 2002 and started blogging and podcasting in 2008. I have a brilliant husband, two redheads, and never imagined my life would ever be this fun!

And just in case that isn't enough here are the first 5 chapters!

Make sure if you go and get your copy today and let Kallie Ross know what you think by leaving a review!
