RELEASE DAY BLITZ: Going the Distance by Christa Cervone


Going the Distance (Down for the Count #2) 
by Christa Cervone
  From surviving a hellish childhood, to reuniting with his lost brother, only to struggle with helping him battle his drug addiction—a whirlpool of addiction that threatens to drag his brother under. Life’s been a roller coaster for Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega… Just when his career hits the fast track, he finally finds love with Salem, at least for a short time. But social differences, obligations, and misguided good intentions tore Gabriel and Salem apart before they could ever really get started. Is Salem capable of breaking away from the ropes that bind her to doing what’s expected rather than what and whom she desires? Can Gabriel convince Salem that their feelings are worth fighting for? Does their relationship have what it takes to go the distance?





Born and raised in New England, Christa is a married mother of three. She began writing her first book, Broken, in October 2012, as a love story to her husband, Frank. During the writing process, Christa managed to keep her book a secret from the majority of her family and friends, including her mother. She finally revealed that she had written a book on her personal Facebook page just two weeks before Broken was released. Broken was released in February 2013, and within twenty-four hours of its release, it was on Amazon's Movers and Shakers list as well as in the Top 20 Erotica. Christa released her second novel, On the Ropes - Book One in the Down for the Count series, in February 2014. On the Ropes has also climbed the charts on Amazon, hitting the Top 10 Sports Fiction and the Top 20 Romance Sports Fiction lists. Book Two, Going the Distance, was released July 2014 and claimed the number 3 spot in the Interracial category as well being in the top 20 in Erotica on Amazon. Limitless Publishing has recently acquired the Down for the Count series and will be re-releasing the series under their publishing label in May 2015. Along with the Down for the Count series, Christa's new series titled, Can't Stop Lovin' You, will also be released under Limitless Publishing. The series will have at least four books, Dream On, What it Takes, Sweet Emotion and Hole in my Soul. Dream On is slated for 2015 release.


REVIEW: Untreatable by J. Laslie

Book Info-
Title- Untreatable
By- J. Laslie
Genre- YA Dystopian


People are dying...

Tahlia and Quentin live in a world where the US population is starving to death one hundred years after a government-mandated "cure" for obesity. Tahlia's ancestors escaped genetic mutation. Now she and her tribe must hide in the wilds of South Dakota to avoid being harvested for their untainted DNA. When Tahlia is captured on a supply run, she becomes a lab rat for the scientists searching for an antidote. The fate of humanity lies buried in Tahlia's genetic code, and her own survival lies in the hands of Quentin–the only son of the very doctors who want to cut her open.

Harrowing and suspenseful, Untreatable transports readers to a dystopian future where everything is not as it seems and resilience of body–and spirit–is required to survive.

I really enjoyed this book!  I have not read a Dystopian book in a long while.  I missed reading this genre and this book brought back my love for it! 

Author J. Laslie had me hooked from the 1st page.  I immediately got into the story and characters she created.  

This story line was not what I expected from a YA book and that is what made me like this book a lot!

Obesity.... yes the government has found a cure to end it.  Well that is what they say but did they really find a cure?  Everyone has to make a decision on whether they want to be cured or not who are obese.  And so it begins with you falling into the minds of  Tahlia and Quentin and their journey of saving each other and the ones they love.  

Action, love, suspense, and some twists that had me second guessing the outcome at the end.

While reading this story, Author J. Lasile was able to bring me into her realistic world she created which I loved.  I felt as though I was there. 

Go get this book! Great read!
