Sunday Post - 241 & Stacking the Shelves - 182

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Ugh you guys! Our clothes dryer went ka-put a little over a month ago. We ordered a new one online from Lowe's a month ago. The delivery date was estimated to be March 12th. On the 17th they called to say that it had shipped from the Samsung factory and had arrived in Georgia, but that it would take a week to arrive at our local store, and then they would have to schedule a delivery to us. When we still hadn't heard anything by the 25th we contacted Lowe's again. It was Tuesday before we heard anything, only to be told that our dryer still won't arrive at our local store until this coming Wednesday...and again we still have to schedule it for delivery to our house. This has been beyond frustrating. I know people have much worse problems in their lives, but this is so annoying. Little Girl spent the night with her Grammy Friday night. That allowed us to go out to eat and to go see a play that my nephew was in. They did such a great job. Then Saturday, I took advantage of an empty house to deep clean.

Although he's glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape.

Goodreads description--"I would love you forever, if I only had the chance..."

Kacey Dawson has always lived life on the edge--impulsively, sometimes recklessly. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch...

Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he's vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.

Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.

Full Tilt is a story about what it means to love with your whole heart, to sacrifice, to experience terrible grief and soaring joy. To live life with all its beauty, and all its pain, and in the end to be able to smile through tears and know you wouldn’t have changed a thing.

***FIRST BOOK IN A TWO PART DUET***

All In (Full Tilt #2) forthcoming...
