  • Libby’s Tribe: The Before Series Book Three by Jacy Sage

    0 out of 5

    Hi, I’m Libby, owner of a gift shop called Magick & Mayhem and a simple, boring life. That’s why my self-absorbed aunt thought I could just drop everything and come running when she needed help. At least, that’s what I thought happened. Until I discovered a woman appearing in my dreams was real and there too. Maybe magic and mayhem wasn’t a novelty after all. Could this woman help me find the power to step into my dreams and save the woman crying out to me for help? Is that even possible? Am I destined to find a tribe and maybe even love in this magical world? Or should I call myself crazy and go back to my simple life?

    Are you like me? Is there nothing in your life that turned out the way you thought it would?

    I needed a getaway- it was just supposed to be a hike in the Smoky Mountains. I didn’t plan on discovering the old lady, with the gifts, waiting for me. I thought I was level-headed, grounded, and even serious. I would think the excursion through a world of dreams I never imagined existed was just that- a dream.

  • Apart from Love by Uvi Poznansky

    0 out of 5

    Apart from Love is not your typical love story. All-consuming, heart-wrenching, and dark, it is a family saga that starts when Ben returns to meet his father, Lenny, and his new wife, Anita. It is then that he discovers a family secret. How will they find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness?

    My Own Voice (“As told by Anita”):
    Ten years ago, Anita started an affair with Lenny, in spite of knowing that he was married and that his wife was succumbing to a mysterious disease. Now married to him and carrying his child, how can she compete with Natasha’s shadow and with her brilliance in the past? Given Anita’s lack of education, how can she resist his compelling wish to transform her? Can she survive his kind of love?

    Faced with the way he writes her as a character in his book, how can Anita find a voice of her own? And when his estranged son, Ben, comes back and lives in the same small apartment, can she keep the balance between the two men, whose desire for her is marred by guilt and blame?

    The White Piano (“As told by Ben”):
    Coming back to his childhood home after years of absence, Ben is unprepared for the secret, which is now revealed to him: his mother, Natasha, who used to be a brilliant pianist, is losing herself to early-onset Alzheimer’s, which turns the way her mind works into a riddle. His father has remarried, and his new wife, Anita, looks remarkably similar to Natasha—only much younger. In this state of being isolated, being apart from love, how will Ben react to these marital affairs, when it is so tempting to resort to blame and guilt? “In our family, forgiveness is something you pray for, something you yearn to receive—but so seldom do you give it to others.”

    Behind his father’s back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him. These tapes, with his eloquent speech and her slang, reveal the story from two opposite viewpoints.

    Dealing with the challenging prospects of the marriage of opposites, this book can be read as a standalone novel as well as part of one of family sagas best sellers. Still Life with Memories is a family saga series tinged with family saga romance, fraught with marital issues, and riddled with the difficulty of connecting fathers and sons.

  • Reverb by J. Cafesin

    0 out of 5

    James Whren is brilliant, beautiful, rich, and taken—with his genius for creating music. Desired by many, he commits to no one but his muse. On the eve of his brother’s funeral his father shatters his life, and James is left abandoned in hell with no one real to save him.

    Until Elisabeth, and her son, Cameron.

    Reverb is a love story, a psychological thriller paced with romantic suspense. Spun from The Magus (John Fowles), also about a man who learns to love someone other than himself, and way beyond 50 Shades of Gray (E.L. James), Reverb is told like Crime and Punishment, modern, tight, dark, edgy verging on sharp. It’s like nothing you’ve read, guaranteed.

    5/5 Stars / Top Pick! “This is one of those stories that pulls you in immediately and has you frantically turning the pages to see what happens next.”–Diana Coyle, Night Owl Reviews

This book is a quest, a travelogue, a love story, a philosophical treatise, and a swaggering adventure in which to find your unrequited love you’re going to delve into a fragmentary tale inside a tale and find out things normally reserved for monks only. “My fucking god this is brilliant. That sounds so banal. I suck at blurbs. Fuck. This story drew me in immediately with its detailed viscera. I trust this voice because it reeks with reality. Life really fucking lived, love really fucking felt. Singular and vital and never boring.”
