Bridge Book Party! & A Giveaway!

Tomorrow is the release day for Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions

A journey may take hundreds of miles, or it may cover the distance between duty and desire.
Sixteen of today’s hottest writers of paranormal tales weave stories on a common theme of journeying. Authors such as Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Caine, and Melissa Marr return to the beloved worlds of their bestselling series, while others, like Claudia Gray, Kami Garcia, and Margaret Stohl, create new landscapes and characters. But whether they’re writing about vampires, faeries, angels, or other magical beings, each author explores the strength and resilience of the human heart.
Suspenseful, funny, or romantic, the stories in Enthralled will leave you moved.

Edited by New York Times bestselling authors Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong.

Sounds amazing right?

But what really has me excited is this one particular story.....Bridge by Jeri Smith-Ready because it's a story from her popular Shift series, told from Logan's POV. And I <3 Logan!

<---see! I really do <3 Logan

I know he can be wild, and even selfish but Logan loves with all his heart and I think you will see a different side of him in Bridge. This is the story of his journey of forgiveness, acceptance and letting go.
Obviously, I love Logan.....and I love Jeri, but honestly, swear to God, totally objectively, I loved Bridge. It is my favorite thing Jeri has ever written (and I've read it all).
Told in verse, it captured me from the very first line and never let me go. There is a lulling rhythm and simplicity to the story that just tore at my heart. It made me laugh and it made me cry. Buckets.
I don't have adequate words for how much I loved this story.

(Even my husband loved this one)

Have I peaked your interest?? Good because......
