Coyote shifted to look like Atticus and then let the remaining, avenging Norse pantheon kill him, with the help of a few thunder gods. Now Atticus, Granuaile,...

Cover Reveal & Spotlight: Lessons in Losing It by Jessica Peterson

Cover Reveal & Spotlight: Lessons in Losing It by Jessica Peterson Just friends… That’s all soccer star Fred Ohr wants to be with Rachel Collins, the American student he meets at party in his adopted hometown of Madrid.  He’s looking for the real deal—someone who’ll stick around Spain for more than a semester—so he resolves to keep her at arm’s length.  Even if she is sexy as hell.  Smart.  And as crazy about sports as he is.

Review: Cooking with Kandy by Peggy Jaeger

Review: Cooking with Kandy by Peggy Jaeger Cooking with Kandy Author: Peggy Jaeger Reviewer: Jen Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Cooking with Kandy is the EBC’s number one food show, making Kandy Laine a highly successful woman, and apparently a target. Kandy is self-driven with high standards and an incredible work ethic. While she is extremely busy, family always comes first; she is giving, caring, and would do anything for those in her inner circle. So when threats on Kandy’s life grow more serious, she’s honestly perplexed that it could be coming from someone close to her. Josh Keane was hired to protect Kandy and get to the bottom of the threats. While he has...

#FitReaders: Jen’s Comparison of Apple Watch & Fitbit

#FitReaders: Jen’s Comparison of Apple Watch & Fitbit As I wrote in my #FitReaders check-in today, I’ve been increasingly frustrated with my Fitbit and decided to try the Apple Watch. Let me state right up front that the Apple Watch is NOT a fitness tracker… it is a smart watch with fitness tracking capabilities. I will also preface this post by stating Apple’s idea of “fitness” is different than Fitbit’s.
