Passion in Portland 2016 Author Signing Event

AJ Harmon did an amazing job!!!

This was my first ever time attending a big book signing. I have been to signings in book stores and all but not signings like this. To have so many authors in one place was an amazing experience. 
I walked out of there with 22 new books and LOTS of new swag. The authors were so nice and friendly. 


It truly was a blast. Next year I must bring more money. I was only able to come home with 22 new books and there were so many, many books I wanted that I couldn't get.


There were so many great raffle prizes. A few authors even had raffle drawings of their own. I had the honor of winning Hadley Quinn's drawing. A huge congratulations to the winners of the raffle prizes. I loved that quilt up for grabs. Congrats to the winner of that.
Among the winners of the prizes were:
Nicole Richard giveaway -Jolene
Beach Bag giveaway- Jolene
Crazy about book box- Jolene
(will update the list as I get it)



I got to meet the following authors as well as many more that I did not get pictures with.
It truly was a blast at PiP16. Can't wait to go next year.

Anna Brooks----amazing author.

I have recently discovered the author Anna Brooks. I am stoked she is going to the Passions in Portland signing in September and I will get to meet her. Upon discovering her I have read all of her It's Kind of Personal books. Which include:

~Make Me Forget
~Show Me How
~Prove Me Right
~Tell Me How
~Remember Me Now

They are all amazing works of art. This author is truly talented and knows how to write a great story. I have been so busy with trying to figure out how to do reviews of them without spoilers. It is hard. I still haven't posted my reviews and I feel bad for that. Since, I am still struggling with writing them I wanted to share with you all what an amazing author she is. These are a series but could read as standalones. I don't recommend the standalone part as each book has parts or reveals information from the others. She has a way with writing that just makes you want to keep going and you fall for all the guys in her books. I have never been so torn between "lovers" as I have with her books. I have found myself going "Oh my god oh my god" or even being pissed. My emotions really come out as I read her books. I fully believe everyone should.

Below is the link to her Amazon Author go there and one click ever single book she has out for sale.

Anna Brooks on Amazon


That is all for our raving on Anna Brooks from End of Story, Next Book.

A new way to do things...

As the weeks and months have gone on we have discovered we do more posting on Facebook and Amazon. So from now we will be posting a weekly post with the links to the Amazon reviews of the books we have read and reviewed that week. We will still try to keep up with Cover reveals and release blog tours and blitz on here but we do those all on facebook as well.

Exclusive Interview with Amber Lacie, Theron, Eve and Thomas

The fans of Amber Lacie sat down with Amber, Theron, and Eve for an interview. One brave fan even went to Thomas' office to ask him a question.
(do NOT continue to read if you havent read Shadows. If you haven't what are youo waiting for click here to buy it now.)




Fans: What are Eve and Theron’s favorite colors?
Eve: “I don’t know. I really like dark purples, but the lavender in our bedroom is really pretty. So I guess any shade of purple would work.”
Theron: “Orange.”










Fans: When did Theron stop being self-conscious of his eye colors and stop wearing sunglasses?
Theron: “After my mom died and my dad sent me off to school, I gave up on everything. Nothing anyone said made any difference to me anymore. I didn’t even want to exist. After a while the kids at my school figured out the comments didn’t bother me. In college I actually got complimented a lot. So unless it was sunny out I had no reason to hide.”

Fans: How did Theron come to love Eve so deeply at a young age?
Eve: “Oh, I want to know too.”
Theron: “She never questioned who I was. She saved me. She’s my beautiful.”

Fans: Will Theron’s reasons for leaving Eve be explained in Light?
Amber Lacie: You’ll have to read Light to find out. ;)

Fans: When did Theron find Eve again? How long was he watching her?
Theron: “I never actually lost her. I may have tried to push her away, but she was always with me. Persistent in making me focus on what I was supposed to do with my life. It’s odd how roads twist and turn. She’s the only person that I kept going back to. I knew I needed her. Now, you want to know how long I was watching her? I plead the fifth. She’s right next to me and I don’t feel like suffering through an arm punch right now.”
Eve: “I love you. We’ll talk about this later”

Fans: What was the inspiration for Eve and Theron’s story?
Amber Lacie: “I love to people watch. It’s a bad habit of mine. I tend to create mini stories or wonder where people have come from, where they are going, etc. I was sitting on the beach and I noticed some kids playing in the water. At the same time a couple walked hand in hand right past them who looked ridiculously similar to the kids playing. So…Theron and Eve’s story grew from there.”

Fans: What did Eve think/how did she feel about Theron when they interacted as kids? Did she know his name then? Theron is not a common name…one you might remember. 
Eve: “I didn’t know his name because he wouldn’t tell me. I knew my heart jumped when I was near him and felt compelled to protect him whenever Kayla would give him a hard time. It’s too hard to talk about without bringing up Matt. It’s been years, but it still stings. I was watching the snow fall outside the library windows the other day and my heart stopped still in my chest. It caught me off guard for a second. Winters were tarnished and so were my memories of the beach for a while. I’m okay though. I like to listen to Theron’s version of when we were little. It sounds more like a fairytale. I’m not even sure if I answered your question.”


Fans: Theron…seriously, dude…a freaking note? That’s how you decide to leave the love of your life? I’m so mad at you!
Eve: Feel free to explain this one Theron, the floor is yours.
Theron: Fuck. I knew this was coming. Look, I wasn’t thinking right. I thought I was protecting her. I knew if I told her in person or even talked to her on the phone I would back out. I wouldn’t be able to walk away from her, but it was obvious to me I was hurting her. I couldn’t stand by loving her with everything I have to offer and still hurt her in the process. I didn’t think she loved me like I needed her to. She needed to heal from everything with Matt.
Eve: Bullshit excuse if you ask me. It was fucking note! Who the hell does that? (Taking a deep breath) Sorry. I’m sorry. I forgive you. We’ve moved past it. I’m letting it go.
Theron: I’ve apologized a million times over. Beautiful, I love you. After we are done with this interview why don’t we go home. I’ll run you a bath.
Eve: Okay.


Fans: Amber, does your husband read your books?
Amber: No. He’s not a big reader. I had to really push him to read Hunger Games. I think that was the first series of books he’s ever finished. He says he will one day, but I’m not holding my breath. 


Fans: For Theron, Eve, and Amber what is your all-time favorite song?
Amber: “That’s easy. Three am by Matchbox 20.”
Eve: “Hmmm. I’m a huge Adele fan. So maybe Rolling in the deep?”
Theron: “My favorite band is Simply Three. The one song I tend to play over and over is Take me to Church. They cover Hozier’s song. I love the melody to it, it clears my head. Eve is my church. (Laughing) God, Evan would roll his eyes at me if he heard me say that.”


Fans: Theron and Eve, pick a song that reminds you of the each other and explain why.
Eve: “Easy. Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. I’ve loved Theron since I can remember. Just the touch of his hand sends my body and mind spinning. I’ll love him until the die I die and for a million years after that.”
Theron: “All of Me by John Legend. She owns me. This crazy beautiful girl let me keep her. Everything I am, everything I want to be, everything I live for her is because of her. She’s my person.”




At this point one brave fan left to go to ask this question is for Thomas. Why all the hatred towards Theron? You don’t honestly believe he killed his mother, do you?
Thomas: “I have enough shit to deal with and you interrupt me for this? He was nothing, but a fucking leach sucking the life out of every person he touched. He ruined my life. He took everything from me. If I could do it all again, he wouldn’t be born. He’s an ungrateful little shit. Everything I’ve done for him and he sends you in here to question me? Get the fuck out of my office. Get. The. Fuck. Out. Now!”
(Please note the brave fan left immediately and no further contact with Thomas was made)

Review: Shadows by Amber Lacie

Shadows by Amber Lacie
Kindle, Self published
September 5, 2015
213 Pages


Eve was content getting lost in her books, while living with her best friends. She’s a beautiful girl surrounded by her friends and family. In her twenty six years of life, nothing exciting has ever happened to her. Everything is going perfectly for her. Little does she know, one summer at the beach could change her life forever. . .

Theron is the son of a cutthroat multi-billionaire business tycoon. He thought he left behind the world his father created, but things change. Now, he’s devoted himself to his eccentric grandma. His only hope at overcoming his past, is finding the one person he lost so very long ago. . .

When Eve bumps into Theron, their worlds collide. Nothing can prepare them for the instant fireworks and roller coaster ride waiting for them.
But. . . One has a secret. Can their love overcome tragedy, lies, and secrets?

----------------------------------------------------------------


Where do I begin? Well, first how about this an amazing debut novel for Amber Lacie. Her characters were developed nicely and easy to relate to. Feeling the pain Eve went through that one fateful night. Feeling the horror she had to be feeling witnessing that crime. Feeling the passion she had with Theron. It is all there, including the hot sex.

This novel will have you hating characters just as much as you love other characters, You will blush for some scenes and yelling at the characters in others. This an emotionally well built novel. It has everything a good romance story needs: secrets, drama, characters to hate, and a TWIST!!!! This novel will leave you on the edge of your seats, begging for more when you finish it.


Well done, Amber Lacie, Well done.

5/5 rating
