Griffin fans pay attention. You have the opportunity to read the first two chapters of his book Untamed and it’s simple. All you have to do is go to this link and fill out the form and the lovely people at Forever Romance will email you the first two chapters on February 16th.

Simple right?

Yesterday, the author of the Thoughtless series, SC Stephens announced on her Facebook page that the fans that pre-order Thoughtful (Thoughtless from Kellan’s point of view) would be rewarded with the first two chapters of Griffin’s book.

There is still no official release date for Untamed, but we did get an official blurb, which you can read below. It looks like the book is going to be set after Reckless as Griffin tries to make a name for himself and away from the D-Bags. But will it cost him his wife Anna and his daughter Gibson?

Griffin Hancock is tired of being stuck behind Kellan Kyle’s spotlight. He’s the best, the main event, and everyone should know it. He has Anna, and his beautiful daughter Gibson, to hell with the rest of them. When a new venture presents itself, Griffin decides this is his chance. But will he get everything he’s ever wanted…or lose it all?

Cover for “Thoughtful” by SC Stephens shows a shirtless Kellan

thoughtful

Fans of Kellan Kyle rejoice. We get to see a shirtless image of him on top of his first baby (aka his car) with his arms outstretched.

It’s a beautiful cover as it really captures the essence of Kellan in just one picture and the color scheme really works for the tone of the book.

Author, SC Stephens released the cover through her Facebook page along with the official blurb and a preorder link for Barnes and Noble.

You can read the official blurb below.

The only place Kellan Kyle has ever felt at home is onstage. Gripping his guitar in a darkened bar, he can forget his painful past. These days his life revolves around three things: music, his bandmates, and hot hookups. Until one woman changes everything… Kiera is the kind of girl Kellan has no business wanting-smart, sweet, and dating his best friend. Certain he could never be worthy of her love, he hides his growing attraction…until Kiera’s own tormented heart hints that his feelings might not be one-sided. Now, no matter the consequences, Kellan is sure of one thing-he won’t let Kiera go without a fight.

As we know, Thoughtful will be the first story in the series, Thoughtless, but told from Kellan’s point of view. No doubt we will get his perception on those steamy scenes from the first book (like the booth) but also an inside look at the reasons for what he did. Personally, I am hoping we get more about Kellan’s background and his life growing up.

Amazon has not set up a pre-order link yet, but Barnes and Noble did. You can go here to pre-order it for your Nook.

Thoughtful is set to come out February 24th.

Five books you should read this summer

With the beginning of summer finally upon us, it’s important to find those oh so important books to bring with you when you go on vacation. A lot of times when I am on vacation or looking for a book to read while I’m on the beach, I tend to fall back on a few books on my Kindle.

Below are five books or book series that you should invest in getting on your e-reader or buy the hard copies. They are perfect books to read while on the beach because they will hook you right from the start and allowing you time to get that nice tan that you are looking for.

#5 – The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

When it comes to summer reading, there are usually two types of books that people look to read. Romance and mystery. This book is the second book in the series and it will follow the second popular type of book, mystery. We meet up with Detective Cormoran Strike as works another murder. If it’s anything like the first book, then you will be in for a roller coaster ride with twists and turns around every corner.

best of me

#4 – Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

With the first look of the new Nicholas Sparks book to be adapted to the big screen, it might be a good idea to read the book before the movie comes out in October. While the book has a lot of similarities to his other classic, The Notebook, there is a lot of differences that will separate the two books. The casting looks better in regards to younger and odler versions of the characters and there are essentially two different love stories, even though it’s only one couple. This is a great book for that romantic in you and like with any other Sparks book, you can’t help but fall for each of the characters.

shatter me

#3 – Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi

In this Young Adult series, we follow Juliette who has a curse where she can’t touch someone without it causing them insurmountable pain. She is held in a prison until The Reestablishment takes her out with plans on using her. It’s a very intriguing series as it will hold you from the beginning to the end. Of course there is a little bit of a love triangle involved in the series, it’s not what controls the series. It’s amazing to watch as someone who was afraid of her own shadow come into her own and stand up for what is right.

#2 – Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens

This is a beautiful love story between Kiera and Kellan. They don’t get together in the best ways, both betraying someone they care for, but fate doesn’t care about the victims involved. During the next two books, we get to read as they overcome their insecurities and build a strong foundation for a relationship that you can’t help but fall in love with yourself. They have the kind of love that you want in life and it’s the perfect kind of series to read while you are on the beach.

fighting series

#1 – The Fighting series by J.B. Salsbury

This is the perfect series to start reading when you are spending some time on the beach. There are three books that have been released so far with a fourth one it’s way. In this series, we follow a new extreme fighter in each book as they meet the woman of their dreams and fall in love. Of course, it wouldn’t be a good romance story without some kind of conflict. Salsbury has a very unique and beyond intriguing way of writing. Each story is different and complex and each story deals with sensitive subject matters that will make you fall in love with the characters as you seem them overcome those hardships.
