Surrender My Love by Melissa Foster (Love in Bloom, The Bradens (at Peaceful Harbor), Book 14 - Book Review/Giveaway



Book #2 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Love in Bloom

Fall in love with Cole Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love. .

In SURRENDER MY LOVE... Annalise "Leesa" Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush--and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.

From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He's a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there's a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart--and a painful past--but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.

A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs--and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

SURRENDER MY LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While SURRENDER MY LOVE can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

Praying For Your Husband From Head To Toe Book Review


*Disclosure: I did receive this book free in exchange for my honest review. These are my opinions only and yours may differ.*

Prayer is a great tool that Christians have access to. I pray for everything from having a good day to when I have a huge problem and know that only God can help me. One problem I have though is praying for others. I usually don't know what to pray or I start to and end up going back to me. I know it sounds pretty selfish but I have just never been good at praying for others. I can pray small things for them in my head but if you ask me to do it out loud it is a whole different story. It is the fear factor that I really need to get over. Since I am a married woman it is very important that I pray for my husband. If I don't I feel as though I am not doing all my wifely duties.

Cover Girl Voxbox


*Disclosure: I was provided complimentary items in exchange for my honest review. These are my opinions only and yours may differ*

I was lucky enough to be picked to receive the Cover Girl Voxbox from Influenster. I really love the products I got too. I have really small eyes so the mascara was hard to see on my but it did make my lashes plump and pretty. I think I needed to curl them first but did not do that. Below is my before and after.
