BETWEEN THE BLEEDING WILLOWS
by D.A. Roach
The Demon Hunter Series Book 1
YA Paranormal Romance

— SYNOPSIS — At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most…
At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.

Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

— REVIEW: 5 STARS —
Oh my gosh!!!!! DA Roach hooked me instantly with this book. So, so, SO GOOD!! I LOVE reading YA Paranormal books with just the right amount of romance intertwined to keep me hoping something more will happen, and let me just say: this is IT. 

My heart was sad right off the bat and I feared this would be one of those books where the HEA was doomed from the very beginning... But then, things turned around and got very promising. 

Enter Killian. 
Hello, Mr. Delicious!!!! Broody, mysterious, powerful, tattooed, protective....and did I mention, dee-lee-cious?! Oh, yes! He was the leader of his clan (they were demon hunters) and let me tell you, he was a leader through and through, and a sexy one at that. He'd stayed away from love or even the idea of it because he'd always put his clan first. Their safety was his one priority and always would be. 

Or would it, now...?

Cassidy had lost her boyfriend of four years to a car accident. Then, her grandmother who raised her passed away suddenly too. Talk about kicking a girl when she's down! She was left all alone, feeling beyond lost. Needing to find the one thing that would connect her to Jace, her mother's ring she'd given him, she one day headed to the scene of the accident hoping to find it there. That day changed everything for Cassidy. She found more than a ring. She met Killian and was introduced to this whole other world that she'd always been interested in, but never really knew actually existed! 

Killian and Cassidy. 
Man, oh man. 
Their chemistry sizzled and it went beyond the bond they shared in order for Killian to save her life. (I mean, there ARE worse things in life than being bonded to one of the hottest guys EVER, but that's besides the point. Lol!) It was funny reading scenes where Killian would get jealous of Casper, one of the clan members that was assigned -- by Killian, mind you -- to protect Cassidy. I probably had the biggest grin on my face while reading at this point.

Okay, let me explain. Cassidy and Killian shared a tattoo (they were bonded through that tattoo) and every time Killian would feel anger or jealousy because of Casper, their tattoos would light up and sting. Now, at first Cassidy did not know who she was bonded with (Killian kept her at arm's length), only that she was bonded to someone in the clan in order to keep her from dying from injuries she had sustained. So when her tattoo would out of nowhere hurt, it was pretty comical because it would ALWAYS happen when her and Casper were hanging out and maybe getting a bit too close. And it just so happened that Killian would be near by SEEING THAT. Oh, hmm. 

Anyway, so much happened between the pages of this book. I fear that I can easily get carried away and spill the beans on everything, so I will stop here. I will say that there was drama, action, little surprises thrown into the mix...and then, we also got the INEVITABLE romance brewing between Killian and Cassidy. If you love YA PNR books, do yourself a favor and get this book. I promise you will enjoy it!! I can't wait to start book 2!! FIVE STARS.


WITHIN THE DARKEST HOLLOWS 
by D.A. Roach
The Demon Hunter Series Book 2
YA Paranormal Romance
— SYNOPSIS —

Cassidy and her mystical ring are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Demon World and the Mortal Realm…

A conflict with the demons has left Killian, head of the Demon Hunters, injured and stripped of his powerful Demon Hunter tattoo. Cassidy is tasked with caring for him in the Human Realm until he is well enough to cross back into the Demon Realm. But soon she notices he is acting strangely and begins to suspect something is wrong.

She seeks help from Serena, a retired Demon Hunter, but it’s too late…

Cassidy returns home to find Killian has gone missing. Tyler, a friend with his own set of mystical powers, shows up to tell her that Killian is at his house demanding a meeting with the Demon Queen Rya. She and Serena have to work fast to find a way to heal Killian and get Cassidy’s ring away from him before Rya is involved. Meanwhile, Tyler and his dad have their own plan to make a deal with the Queen.

The Queen has a decision to make, but not before securing her leverage…

Rya wants time to consider the offer presented by Tyler’s dad, and takes Cassidy to the Demon Realm as collateral. The Demon Queen must choose between Tyler, the mate she was promised, and the mystical ring that was forged for her years ago.

Tyler is forced to face the inner demon he has worked so hard to restrain. Will he succeed, or will he be lost to the darkness, leaving Cassidy to be sacrificed by the demons?

As both sides gain alliances, the tension between the realms grows and the time for action draws near…

— REVIEW: 5 STARS —
This book--OMG. I LOVED book 1, but this one? Holy hell, I adored it. Both books must be read in order as they are NOT stand alone novels. That said, is book 3 ready yet? Oh my!!!! I NEED it...pronto! 

This book picks up right where the first one left off and is in many ways darker and has more action and drama. Heck, there's even more steam in some scenes. The characters go through SO much that they are, in a way, forced to grow. Poor Cassidy!!!!! Being held captive like she was?? It was heartbreaking to read. Very well written, though! I felt for her. I wanted to hug her and tell her that Killian would save her! Speaking of Killian.... I sure do love him! So protective and all kinds of delicious!!!!! 

“Cassidy Kavanaugh, what have you done to me?” I whispered as I looked down at the girl who had found a way into my heart, and each day, managed to impress me with all that she was.

Oh man!!!! I sure was grinning towards the end of this book!! Well, where Killian and Cassidy's romance is concerned because the ACTUAL ending left me anxious and in desperate need for book 3!! To say I am curious to see how Tyler's side of this epic story unfolds is an understatement!! Seeing the new side of him...it's HOT, but I'm nervous! Especially with how the book ended--OMG!!!! 

A MUST READ!! Five amazing and addictive stars!!!

MISTER MONEYBAGS by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward #CoverReveal

MISTER MONEYBAGS
(A standalone novel)
Release date 4/10/2017
A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

I met Bianca in an elevator.

She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.
The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life.

So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn't want it to end.

I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.
I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.
I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

And she was falling for two men.
Only, both men were me.
And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn't prepared for what came after.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

After the sudden death of his wife two years ago, Darren Griffin has finally found peace. He has a good life, good job, two daughters he’d do anything for, and a beautiful home on the beach.

Greer Monroe is grieving the loss of her father. It’s the final rung on the broken ladder that’s become her life—crappy job, no friends, and a cheating ex-boyfriend. At the insistence of her aunt, Greer decides to spend some time at her family’s beach house.

When the glee-filled sound of children’s laughter dances through the breeze, Greer finds herself smiling again. The neighbor girls are carefree, depicting a life Greer has only dreamed about. Husband, children, happiness—a family. And their father, Darren, he’s everything a woman could ever want.

But it is, of course, only a dream.

She can’t stay at Carolina Beach, no matter how much she adores Darren and his daughters. She has responsibilities at home, a mother who needs her. Where there’s love, there’s heartbreak, and she can’t go through that again. And she sure as hell won’t do that to those little girls.

But Darren isn’t letting her go that easily. It’s been so long since he’s felt this way for anyone. Greer is his missing piece, a piece he never thought he’d find.

Saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes starting over is even harder.

— BOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS —
CA Harms knows how to break your heart and heal it, all within the pages of one book. She knows how to masterfully write an emotional romance that fully covers the value of second chances. From each one of her books, I've come to expect an amazing story, and let me tell you, she never disappoints.

"You're my forever," he whispered against my neck as he slid inside me ever so slowly. "My today, my tomorrow."

The story behind Darren's character will make your heart ache. You can't help but feel for the man! Loosing his wife, the love of his life? Uh, tear-jerker! His two little girls are the most adorable characters EH-VER. Oh, my heart! They are just too adorable!! I could see why and how easily Greer fell in love with them! How could she not?

Greer's story is not as heart-breaking as Darren's, but still quite emotional. Losing her dad and coming home to find her boyfriend doing the tango with another woman STINGS....badly! A vacation is just what she needed! 

Darren and Greer could not have met at a more perfect time. Their story is very much realistic, and I love that! CA shows us the insecurities they both feel as they're getting to know each other, mainly Darren with being a single father. Seeing him worry about how his relationship with Greer could affect his girls is truly something that melted my heart while reading, and it was spot-on!

"I feel like all those dreams I had as a little girl have finally come true and for once I'm being granted the happy ending I've always only dreamed of." 

Such a GOOD book. A beautiful, sexy, and fun story that had me glued to my iPad from beginning to end. In true CA Harms fashion, this is a must-read! FIVE STARS!

— EXCERPT 
Darren

“So who is the girl?” My mother’s question confused me, and the look on my face must have expressed that confusion. “The one the girls keep talking about,” she added unhelpfully. “Vivian said you were talking to a pretty lady today and she made you smile. The one from the blue house.”
I shook my head and chuckled as I finally understood. How could a friendly introduction between two neighbors be interpreted as anything more than it was? Then again, I was dealing with two girls that had their pushy, nosy, need to-fix-it-all granny fishing for any snippet of my nonexistent personal life.
The woman was hell-bent on me being happy, but I was happy. I had my girls, and I didn’t need anyone else.
“Just a new occupant in the vacation home behind us,” I said and got back to working on the pipe below her kitchen sink.
But she kept hovering. “Oh yeah,” she said dragging out the word a little longer than necessary.
“Yeah, Ma,” I said, ignoring her strange interest in nothing. “Just a simple hello, nothing more.”
“That isn’t what Vivian told me,” she said, her voice laced with humor.
Oh Lord, the woman either needed a damn hobby or she needed to focus on my brother, who was twenty-six and still living above her damn garage. He was the one who needed a push, not me.
“Vivian is four years old, and she still believes in princesses and dragons.” I leaned out from under the sink and gave my mother an exasperated look. “Gossiping with my daughter about my love life, or lack thereof, isn’t your style, Ma.”
“Yesh, it is.” I looked to my left to find Dean, my brother, talking through a mouthful of chips as the crumbs fell from his lips to the floor at his feet. “She doesh it all the time,” he assured me, still attempting to talk with his mouth full. I looked back at my mother.
She shrugged and gave me that innocent look she used to her advantage often, only this time I didn’t buy it. She was guilty.
Guilty of prying and using my daughter—or daughters, I had to assume—as her window into my life.
The woman was evil.
 
 

— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: CA HARMS —
A little about me. Let’s see where to start.
I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.

THE STORY OF US by d. Nichole King #GIVEAWAY

THE STORY OF US by d. Nichole King
Release Date: Feb. 9, 2017
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
— SYNOPSIS —

Moments.

Every life is made of thousands of them, each one strung together with the next. Some are yellow and happy, some are blue and sad, and some…

Some wipe out color altogether.

“I love you,” is what I should have told Maverick.

“I’m sorry.”

“I’m still fighting.”

Instead I just watched him leave.

Now my husband, my everything is battling for each breath, and all I can do is stare at the machines as the clock ticks off precious minutes.

The doctors said the first twenty-four hours are critical—but every moment is critical.

You never know which will be your last.

This is our story, and I’m not ready for it to end.



— PURCHASE LINKS 
Available on Kindle Unlimited!



— EXCERPT — 
I’m cold sitting in one of the waiting rooms in the ICU. Maverick is still in surgery, the nurse tells me. They’ll come get me once he’s in his room. It shouldn’t be too much longer. No one else is close by. It’s just me and my thoughts.

It’s strange the things you think of to distract yourself from the real reason you’re sitting here. Me, I focus on the oil painting on the wall. Wonder how many people have stared at it and wanted to tear it down. How many liked it. Has anyone noticed that it leans a little to the left or that there’s an inconsistency in the corners of the wooden frame? Did anyone deliberate why this painting?

I’m sure it’s meant to calm the people who look at it. Doesn’t everyone find a lake dotted with sailboats calming? But the colors are all wrong. They don’t soothe me. They’re bright and bold and demanding. There’s too much crimson, too dark of navy.

I have to turn away from it. There’re magazines on the tables, but they scream at me too. Loud headlines of celebrities with large divorce settlements, jail time, and plastic surgery. The science ones boast of the newest medical advances and archeological finds. What they don’t realize is that in here, life beyond these walls no longer exists. In here, there’re only three things that matter: life, death, and the battle between them.

I shiver again. I should have brought warmer clothes.

Hugging my knees to my chest, I focus on the fake plant in the corner. There are no windows in this area, which is how I know it’s fake. It might be a fern of some sort, I don’t know. The leaves are long and skinny, but again, the color is wrong for this place.

I shift my attention to the hallway. In here, the lights are dim, but out there they’re on full and reflecting off of the cream floor. There’s a nurse at the nurses’ station, sitting behind a computer. She’s different from the one before. A moment later, another walks up to the desk. They keep hushed voices, and I hear nothing. The one at the computer lifts her eyes to me and when she meets my gaze, she offers a sympathetic smile. I don’t smile back.

I lower my head until my cheek rests on my arms, and I close my eyes. My skin is ice against my face. Cold is what it means to be alone, and right now, I’ve never felt more alone. Alone, but not lonely. No, because being lonely is different than being alone. Lonely is a fleeting state that ends. When Finley gets here, I’ll no longer be lonely, yet without Mav, I’ll still be alone.

I think about the happy moments Mav and I shared. Our time in Cancun. The dance under the stars. His smile. His silly pet name for me.

That was us. The whole, take-on-the-world, in-love us.

The us before we broke.

MASTERING THE ART OF A THREE RING CIRCUS by A. Wilding Wells #BookReview

MASTERING THE ART OF A THREE RING CIRCUS 
by A. Wilding Wells
The Wild Things Series #2, Standalone
Genre: Contemporary Romance
— SYNOPSIS —

Perhaps some promises should be broken….

Theophile
The price of freedom was as simple as a promise. Fifteen more years in jail or a marriage. I agreed and didn’t look back, until the circus came to town.

Wolfgang
Leaving England behind for a small town in Wisconsin meant two more years of freedom for my family, which is my everything. And then I met Theophile, an irresistibly intriguing woman whose heart I will claim, regardless of the fact that she made a promise to one of the greediest and wealthiest men on earth: my father.

A deeply moving, gripping modern day fairytale about a spirited woman whose scruples are tested when her life is turned upside down by a larger-than-life candy heir and his eccentric circus family. A gut-wrenching, sweet and magical read filled with humor, tragedy and a cast of endearing characters that will steal your heart.


— PURCHASE — 

— REVIEW: 5 STARS 
One thing I absolutely adore about A. Wilding Wells' books is how different her story lines are. I love how she always thinks out of the box and creates these amazing characters and unique stories that have managed to keep me hooked from beginning to end each and every time!

Wolfgang....man, he had me swooning. He had a dirty mouth, but a very soft and sweet heart. What a mouth-watering combination! An alpha, but not an overbearing one! He let Theophile realize on her own that she simply would not be able to stay away from him. He was persistent, don't get me wrong, and her hesitation made sense (I mean, why bother given her situation), but their connection was hands-down undeniable.

Theophile's situation had me SO CURIOUS! I wanted to know why she was in that situation to begin with and how she was going to get out of it! Then, Wolfgang's baby-mama predicament had me intrigued too! What if she showed up? What would happen with Bubble? And then....the slight (not-so-slight) turn of events happened. Say what!? 

Such a great book in every aspect!!! I laughed, I swooned, I felt nervous, anxious, and beyond intrigued... simply, AMAZING and a must read! FIVE STARS!!!


— EXCERPT 
“Are you always so fidgety and sassy?” He steps toward me, leaning so close that I smell his sweet breath and exquisite cologne. “You’ve been blushing since you got here. And your wandering-all-over-me, black eyes say one thing.” He pauses, staring at my lips for an uncomfortable length of time. Pressing a hand to my lower back, he asks, “Would you like me to tell you what it is?”

I grimace and squirm. My acting skills need a brush-up. He is pure fucking fire.

“Who the hell do you think you are?” I ask.

“The man you want in your bed all night long.” His voice dips low, to an almost dangerous tone.

“You are—”

He places two fingers on my lips, shushing me. His dimples sink, shocking my heart and tangling my lady parts up. He cups his jaw with one hand and I back away, stumbling. He tips his head and a roar of sinister laughter storms out. A wave of heat rushes through me, my cheeks burning. I should run.

Into his arms.

No—away.

“You are the cockiest, filthiest man I’ve ever met.” And, oh my god, I want you.

He steps toward me, and why my feet betray me by staying put when I will them to move confuses me as much as the way my heart is cartwheeling.

“Once we fuck, you’ll add sweetest to that list. I promise.”

I’ll bet you do. Promise.

I swallow over a dry patch when he saunters behind me, pressing against me with an obvious erection. I take an unsteady gulp of air when he moves my hair aside, his hot breath causing my skin to prickle.

It’s not that I haven’t had my share of one-night stands with guys whose last names I didn’t know afterwards. But that was sex. Plain and simple. No butterflies, goose bumps, or heart-racing reactions accompanied those circumstances. Those guys might have been cute, but they could never compare to Wolfgang.

He slides his hands up my skirt, onto my bare thighs. What am I doing? Oh god, his hands. Hot and travelling across my skin on a mission. Please don’t stop. I won’t get in your way. I close my eyes and suck my bottom lip when he grips handfuls of my ass.

“Your heart is pounding,” he whispers. “I feel it against my chest. And, since you’re not running from me, that must mean you want this.”

“Wolfgang, what are you doing?”

He feathers the insides of my thighs, his fingertips playing my skin in tender sweeps. I moan—god help me. I’m certain I hear him say, “Hand it over—your heart.” Unless it was my heart saying that to my brain, which has disengaged from any form of logic.

“Don’t be afraid of me.” His hands ride across the band of my underwear, and he stops at my hip bones, lingering then easing my underwear down an inch. “Life is short.” Lips feather my ear. “Live the opera.”

“This is…” Ludicrous. Obscene. Sexy. A stranger touching me so well, so…

God, is he confident.

“Wolfgang,” I groan. A mating call.

He answers, a rich, fuck-me-now noise that rumbles against my back. As boneless as jelly, I drop my head backward, my nose tickled by a sweep of his hair. He kicks my legs apart, and, in anticipation, I edge them open even more.

“You’re meadows and all the flowers adorning them.” His voice is quiet but overflowing with passion and need. “I want to smell you, taste you…climb inside you.”


— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A. WILDING WELLS —
I’m a mother of four sons, a country dweller, a foodie, an animal and nature lover and an entrepreneur. I started my first company when I was twenty-three with my husband and partner, the lovely man I am still married to and work with twenty-four years later. Together we’ve always created. I’ve written several books in other genres under a different name. My first novel is A Mess of Reason and what released in July 2015. My second book, How To Tame Beasts And Other Wild Things, was published in April 2016. A Field Guide To Catching Crickets ​was published June 7, 2016.


ABOUT MY WRITING

I live with my characters day and night. Most of the time I feel like a voyeur in their lives, which magically seem to unfold right in front of me. They’re in my dreams and on my brain non-stop. I’ll spend weeks editing and revising one book with the next plot swimming through my head and being scribbled onto endless reams of paper. When I write I feel everything - and I do mean EVERYTHING - about them. I’m turned on by them. I laugh at and with them. I get pissed at them. I bitch at them. I cry if something awful is happening to them. My heart speeds up when they fight. I get goose bumps because of them.

I’ll admit it sometimes feels a little like I’m playing God when I write (either that or a puppeteer). I love writing about strong characters that have flaws and imperfections to deal with, work on or resolve. I adore twists, turns and funky plot oddities that make life the crazy thing that it really is. I love putting my characters in awkward situations that allow for interesting, heated and often sexy dialogue to play out.

A Carolina Beach Novel
Cover Designer: Melissa Gill with MG Book Covers
Cover Model: RJ Ritchie
Photographer: Furious Photog (Golden Czermak)
RELEASE DATE: February 14th 2017

PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE!

After the sudden death of his wife two years ago, Darren Griffin has finally found peace. He has a good life, good job, two daughters he’d do anything for, and a beautiful home on the beach.

Greer Monroe is grieving the loss of her father. It’s the final rung on the broken ladder that’s become her life—crappy job, no friends, and a cheating ex-boyfriend. At the insistence of her aunt, Greer decides to spend some time at her family’s beach house.

When the glee-filled sound of children’s laughter dances through the breeze, Greer finds herself smiling again. The neighbor girls are carefree, depicting a life Greer has only dreamed about. Husband, children, happiness—a family. And their father, Darren, he’s everything a woman could ever want.

But it is, of course, only a dream.

She can’t stay at Carolina Beach, no matter how much she adores Darren and his daughters. She has responsibilities at home, a mother who needs her. Where there’s love, there’s heartbreak, and she can’t go through that again. And she sure as hell won’t do that to those little girls.

But Darren isn’t letting her go that easily. It’s been so long since he’s felt this way for anyone. Greer is his missing piece, a piece he never thought he’d find.

Saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes starting over is even harder.

Only when they dare to dream again, will they ever dare to love.




— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: CA HARMS —
A little about me. Let’s see where to start.
I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.

— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: ANNE JOLIN —
I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. 

I never expected to be an author. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.

If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t. 

Mad love,
Anne Jolin
