Sometimes life gets stressful and hectic and you just can't find the energy or time to dive into a new series or a long book. Then along comes a wonderful, short novella that is just the pick me up you need. Gun Shy was exactly what I needed this week. It was a sweet story of taking a chance and finding love in the most unlikely places.

Eros has been banished to Earth for neglecting his job and allowing love among the humans to dissipate. Until he brings enough couples together he can't go back h

What do you get when you take a recently single strict high school principal and add in a hot rock star who is tired of living the ‘rock star life’? Well you get Gunshy by Seleste deLaney, a sweet and sexy love connection story.

Now I bet you’re thinking “But Julie! An academic and a rock star don’t make an obvious HEA match!” Well I would say that you are absolutely right. Which is why they got a little help. From Cupid.

Yes, that Cupid.

You see, C

My Review:
I picked up this book because of a review of it that Julie (Yummy Men & Kick-Ass Chicks) posted. It was a great recommendation. This is a short little read. Perfect for one of those nights where you only have an hour or so to read (which was the case for me, Thursday night.) It has a fabulous premise...Aros (aka: Cupid) has been too busy goofing off and the state of love in the world has suffered. As a result, Zeus has kicked him out of Olympus and banished him to earth to prove th

The TBR Pile *Book review site*
From the first page Seleste Delaney takes you on a ride of lust and love. From the mythical Mount Olympus to our earthly world where humans really do need to learn about love and lust. Kira and Jesse are two people from the opposite sides of the "tracks" who are drawn to one another. They have both been hurt and abused by shallow relationships, yet they still hope for a "forever" kind of love. The plot was solid and close to how real relationships can be which made the story relateable and enjoy ...more

I really loved this novella. It is a very romantic little love story that takes an everyday woman and brings her into the crazy world of rock stars...a fantasy many women dream of.

Excellent writing, wonderful characters and believable plot. Another great one by Seleste deLaney!
