Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas is LIVE + GIVEAWAY!

Title: Birthday Girl

Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Author:  Penelope Douglas

Release Date:  April 17, 2018


He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.
He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe. 
He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work. 
I have to stop this. It can’t happen.

My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable. 
Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one. 
I am. 

I took her in, because I thought I was helping.
She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement. 
As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to. 
The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me. 
But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight. 
And her boyfriend’s father. 

Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house. 

*BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+.

Christy's 5 Star Review:


Sever is a book I've been waiting for for what feels like forever. Now that I've read it, I can say with complete confidence, it was well worth the wait. Mary Elizabeth has a writing style like no other. It's lyrical, poetic, and while reading her books, I go between reading too quickly because I'm so captivated, and trying to slow myself down so the book doesn't end so fast. Mary is a true story teller and I loved the story she gave us with Closer/Sever.

Ella and Teller's dysfunctional love story continues with Sever. I was worried I would forget things that happened in the first book since there was such a gap between releases, but I had no trouble diving back into their world. It was like I didn't forget a thing. Teller and Ella are co-dependency at it's finest, damaged at best, and so completely in love with one another, they couldn't stay away from each other if they tried. And they do. They try, but it never works. As much as a mess as they are together, they are even worse apart.
“I don’t know how to be without you, Ella,” I say. “Neither do I,” she admits.


Mary writes the best 'messy' love stories. They are so full of passion, and have this realness and intensity you so rarely see in most romance books. Teller and Ella are a hot mess. They're a fucked up duo, but I love them both. Their love is so deep and intense. They could be frustrating at times, but no matter what they always had the love between them. I don't want to delve into the plot, so I'm keeping this review vague, but I love the direction the story went.

I love to feel when I read, and this story put me to the ringer. I had all the feels. It's dysfunctional, angsty, all-consuming, and a completely epic, yet unconventional romance between two people who can't be apart. I loved these two books and highly recommend them!

We’re complicated people, with complicated behaviors, and complicated pasts. We love too hard, and fight too loud, and that’s how we like it. He is wrecked, and I am damaged. But together, we’re going to be okay.

Cover Reveal: Emma Scott's One Good Man

It’s spring, 1970. The Vietnam War has been raging for years with no end in sight. Janey Martin, a California college student and aspiring journalist is tired of writing puff pieces about her university men’s sports teams. She wants to be taken seriously as a journalist and as a woman. With riots at their doorstep, her wealthy father sends Janey to the Sorbonne in Paris to finish her college education away from the chaos.

Janey is reluctant to leave the Big Story that is Vietnam, but vows to prove herself. Much to her dismay, her first assignment is to interview the hotshot star forward of a local soccer team. Janey is sure Adrien Rousseau is going to be like every other playboy jock she’s ever dealt with, but quickly learns there is much more to Adrien than meets the eye.

The mysterious, sexy footballer just might be the biggest story of Janey’s life.

Emma Scott is a bestselling author of emotional, character-driven romances in which art and love intertwine to heal, and in which love always wins. If you enjoy thoughtful, realistic stories with diverse characters and kind-hearted heroes, you will enjoy my novels.
