Salty hair, sandy toes, lips too often sipping on white wine, I’m a Bali addict.

Now living on my favourite island, you can usually find me sitting at my favourite table, writing, people watching or gazing at the amazing ocean. Chillidog, our rescue pup, is usually at my feet or running amuck on the beach. I enjoy nothing more than a chilled Pinot Grigio and some sexy Luke Bryan tunes in the background.

Hubby and I sold everything and ran away from the kids….it’s ok they’re old enough to look after themselves! Now, I want to share with you my love of Bali, its people and their culture, and also entice you with my romantic reads. They are steamy, sexy and fun, filled with real-life tales and characters that you’ll fall in love with.

The Empty JarThe Empty Jar by M. Leighton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You shouldn't be afraid to read The Empty Jar.
Read it and let it remind you of what love is, a reason to live by.
Read it and let it remind you of what fate is, sometimes unforgiving.
Allow it to remind you that at times you may not forget, but you should forgive. The past is is just that. Take with you to the future only happy memories.

This book had me tearing my hair out in some parts, and in other parts blown away by the sheer beautiful moments. Layla and Thomas each have their own issues, and rather than give the story away, go into this book blind.

The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent
"I don't even know where to begin.

What a mind f*ck. After finishing the book, I literally sat and stared at the wall for about 20 minutes.

I hated this couple, yet I loved them. I wanted to throttle them, yet my heart bled for them. They are by far..." Read more of this review »

I was absolutely thrilled to find that the audiobook version of Complicated was eighteen hours plus. I love a good audiobook and this one has two great narrators, both male and female. But, I did find myself wondering a few tim..." Read more of this review »

Marilyn Monroe
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

Charles Dickens
“I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Maya Angelou
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Maya Angelou

Stephen Chbosky
“There's nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Taylor Swift
“To me, “FEARLESS” is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before. FEARLESS is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s FEARLESS to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s FEARLESS to stop believing them. It’s FEARLESS to say “you’re NOT sorry”, and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS. Letting go is FEARLESS. Then, moving on and being alright…That’sFEARLESS too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS.”
Taylor Swift
