Savage Wolves and Dangerous Deals
(Blood and Magic : Hellbound, #2)
Publication date: April 1st 2020
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Urban Fantasy
He’s everything I told myself I didn’t need.
But for just one night, I’ll give in to temptation.
I’ll forget he’s a shapeshifter and that I’m not.
I’ll forget the Pack would never approve.
Because after tonight I’m moving.
Our paths won’t cross again.
Only that one night gives me more than I bargain for and nine months later I deliver a bundle of joy complete with ten tiny fingers and ten perfect toes.
A year and a half later, I’m back.
But this wolf is no longer the shifter of my dreams.
Now he haunts my nightmares.
And what is he going to think when he learns he has a son, one who isn’t a just a wolf?
Jordy’s stare burns through me as he takes a step forward until we’re little more than an inch away from one another. His hand comes up to wrap around the column of my throat, his hold possessive. He runs his thumb over my jaw and slowly over my bottom lip. I stay still the entire time, waiting to see what this beautiful boy will do when his anger rides him like this. When his wolf’s eyes illuminate his gaze.
“You and César are mine.”
I quirk a brow.
His teeth scrape over his bottom lip, his canines seemingly larger than normal. “Say it.”
His grip tightens just enough to be a warning. “You’re mine.”

Wallflower (wohl-flou-erh): Identifier for someone who is shy and/or awkward. For reference, see Viola Kent.
Seventeen-year-old Viola Kent likes being invisible. Well, not literally, but she’s content being a loner, reading her books, and hanging out with the animals at the shelter. She just wants to keep her head down and get through her senior year at Durham High.
Driving Dare Frost to school every day wasn’t part of the plan.
And when Viola finds out her dad recruited Dare, his number one player, to be her friend?
Her inner Slytherin demands revenge.
The solution: Get Dare to be her fake boyfriend.
Convincing the star athlete to pretend is easier than she’d thought it would be. The hard part is protecting her heart. With every word, touch, and kiss, Viola’s feelings become more real.
The problem: Viola knows she’s falling for Dare—but he doesn’t believe in love.
This book features two sets of soulmates, one happy pooch named Hermione, so many sizzling kisses and answers the question:
Can a dork and a jock fake their way to true love?
This had to be a dream, I thought. Either that or a hallucination.
Standing in our driveway, leaning back against my little Honda, hands in his pockets like he was Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles or something, was a guy who knew he looked good even in sweats and a hoodie.
His six-foot-three frame dwarfed my car. Dare was the last person I expected to see waiting outside my house on my last first day of high school. I was so surprised it took me a second to find my voice.
But Dare just cocked his head.
“Morning flower,” he said. “Better hurry or we’ll be late.”
I shook myself out of it. “Are you lost?”
“Nope, I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.”
“What are you even doing here?” I asked.
“Isn’t it obvious?” He held his hands out, a small smile playing on his lips. “I’m here to bum a ride to school. Speaking of, could you pop the locks?” Dare rubbed his hands together. “It’s a little chilly out here.”
I laughed, couldn’t help it. “Are you crazy? Dare, I’m not taking you to school.”
“Yes, you are.”
“No. I’m not.”
Dare shrugged. “Coach said you would.”
My jaw dropped. “He did what? When? Why?”
“That’s a lot of questions,” he said. “But yeah, your dad and I talked the other day after practice. He said you’d give me a ride because we live so close to each other. Said it would be no problem. I run by your house every morning anyway. Plus, my car’s in the shop for repairs.”
“Didn’t you just get that car?” I asked.
The question made Dare smile for some reason. “You keeping tabs on me, Vi?”
I choked. “What? No!”
“Hey, no worries,” he said. “I’m not mad about it. A lot of girls do it. Just wasn’t aware you were one of them.”

The Secret Recipe for Moving On
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: March 23rd 2021
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
When Ellie is dumped by her boyfriend, she’s forced to make new friends (while watching her ex swoon over his new girlfriend) in The Secret Recipe for Moving On, a smart and funny YA debut from Karen Bischer.
Ellie Agresti’s not sure anything could be worse than being dumped by her boyfriend, Hunter, the first day of senior year.
But sharing a “life skills” class with him and his new girlfriend, Brynn? AND getting partnered with a “family” of misfits (A.J., the loudmouth; Isaiah, the horse-racing obsessive; and Luke, the tattooed stunt-biker)?
It’s a recipe for certain disaster…until an in-class competition allows Ellie to channel her angst into beating Hunter and Brynn’s team, and she unexpectedly bonds with her own group–especially Luke–in the process.
But as Ellie soon discovers, it will take more than classroom triumphs to heal her broken heart–and find herself again.
The Secret Recipe for Moving On is hands down my favorite read of the month (and I read a LOT so that means something, I swear) and my favorite YA contemporary of the year so far. I would not change a single thing about this story, it all just worked so well to create a feel good story with heart and humor and I think everyone should go pick this up. I have already told all my freinds about how they need to read this book and I highly recommend it for anyone who likes resilient main characters, a solid plot with character growth and direction as well as the best quirky bunch of side characters. I can't wait to get my hands on anything else this author wants to create and I have no idea how this is her debut novel, it was basically perfect in my totally fan-girl opinion.
Karen Bischer has written short stories for Girls’ World and Animal Tales magazines and currently works as a copyeditor. She lives in her native New Jersey, where she has never encountered Bruce Springsteen in the wild, but does have a cat named after a member of the E Street Band.
