Before Someday – Book Blitz

Release Day: Before Someday by Julie Prestsater

 

The Double Threat series follows Meg’s crazy world as she navigates high school. She finds love, loses love, finds it again all the while dealing with backstabbing friends, shitty dates, and the inevitable boy problems. She also has an amazing cast of friends who are funky, fun, witty, loyal, and downright goofy. Imagine the Pink Ladies in modern times. This is the Double Threat Crew!

In Meg’s books, she falls hard for Alex Aguilar–sexy hot stud who’s not only HOT, but he’s sweet, loving, and he makes her heart race and her toes curl just being in his presence. He’s not a bad boy. He’s not an alpha male. He’s the uber kind guy who lives next door that you drool over when you go to sleep every night.

In the first four DT books, you wonder about Alex. Wonder about his motives, his thoughts, his time away at school. You want to know more about him other than the fact he’s Meg’s soul mate. You want to know the inner workings of Alex Aguilar.

That’s what BEFORE SOMEDAY is. It’s Alex’s Tell All. It’s his opportunity to set the record straight and allow you to get to know him. You’re going to hate him at times. You’re going to want to shout at him to man the hell up. But you’re going to love him, I promise you that. You’re going to want him for yourself, for your daughter, for your niece, for your friend. Even with all his flaws, you’re going to want to hug him and love on him for the rest of your life.

So I’m A Double Threat, #1
In this fun-filled, fast-moving young adult novel, sassy fourteen-year-old Megan Miller, and her close-knit friends, begin their four year high school journey. Expectations and hopes are high for their Freshman year. Meggie wants nothing more than to experience all high school has to offer – growing freedom, hot boys, parties, make-out sessions, and did I mention hot boys?

Enter Alex Aguilar. At seventeen, he is Carver High’s sports superstar and dreamy superstud. Yet, despite the hype, Alex is undeniably sweet, and Meggie is beyond smitten. But, of course, he is a SENIOR. So, ought to be completely off limits for a ninth grader, right?

Age doesn’t always dictate whom you will love, though. So I’m A Double Threat is the start of their journey. Will young love survive the challenges presented them or is friendship all they can only really hope for? Backs will be stabbed, hearts will be broken, tears will be shed. But, despite this, Meggie’s strong-willed determination, loyalty, and zest for fun, will ensure the ride is a memorable one.

Double Threat My Bleep, #2
Megan Miller’s someday came and she and Alex Aguilar are a couple. She nabbed her dream guy and couldn’t be happier. The only problem is, he is miles away in college and Meg is stuck at Carver High dealing with girl drama, boy problems and the fact that Alex is constantly surrounded by half naked girls. What should be the best year for Meg and company is shaping up to be a year filled with drama and tears and the possibility of a broken heart. Not to mention the confusing feelings she has about Travis, the newest member to the group. Can Meg and Alex make the distance work or will circumstances lead to Meg’s happily-ever after being a thing of the past? And will Travis be there willing to pick up the pieces if it happens?

Double Time, #3
Megan Miller has done the crush thing, had her heart broken and flirted with a close friend to the point of an almost relationship. She is over the drama of her Freshman and Sophomore years and is ready to be single and to mingle. With Keesha and Steph by her side the girls are ready to rock the single hood in their Junior year. Playing the field, meeting new people, doing different things sounds like the life. But is it? What happens when you are out their working the dating scene but your heart is somewhere else, or better yet with someone else? Can you be tied down and still manage to enjoy not being attached? Meg is about to find out. Sometimes being single takes double time.

Double Threats Forever, #4
After three years of broken hearts, back stabbing, lying, cheating, and fighting, Megan Miller and crew have finally made it to their senior year. They are ready to rule the school and show Carver High what the true meaning of being a double threat is, that is if they can manage to keep the drama out of their life. With Ben gone and Amy creating some waves, Meg feels like she is in over her head. What should be the year of prom, parties and memories, is quickly becoming the year of pressure and figuring what path you want your life to go on, and what it means when you may not have your friends by your side. With Alex and her parents’ encouragement, watch as Meg learns sometimes just because you stand on your own two feet doesn’t mean you won’t be a Double Threat Forever.

(These books have mature content that is intended for older young adult audiences.)

Cover Reveal: Tell Me You Love Me – Julie Prestsater

Stay. Stay with me. Stay here. Stay close. Stay like this forever. Stay as happy as I am right here in your arms, always.
*          *          *
All I’ve ever wanted was to be loved, but if this is what true love is…I’m not so sure I want it anymore. It also makes me wonder if any of my memories of our once happy marriage are even real. Maybe I just conjured up the fairy tale in my head because I wanted…no…needed it so much. Who the hell knows?
“Molly just called to remind you about your book club meeting this afternoon.” He turns away. “I told her you’ve never missed a meeting and I doubt today would be any different.”
The door shuts behind him before I let a smile creep across my lips. Instantly, the hurt from this morning flees my mind and I feel nothing but giddiness. I have a book club meeting today, and let’s just say it’s not your everyday book club.
Sure, my husband may never truly love me again…but who needs love when you’re about to get an eyeful of hot firemen?
*          *          *
Tell Me You Love Me is the first in a four-book series called Fire Me Up—a sweet romantic comedy series about a group of sassy neighborhood women who have a serious love for steamy romance novels and sexy firemen. Lucky for them the local firehouse is just a few steps away and is in no shortage of hot firefighters to fill their wild imaginations.

Playing Chase – Julie Prestsater: Blog Tour and Giveaway

Today I am taking part of the blog tour for Julie Prestsater’s newest book in the Against the Wall Series, Playing Chase. After the review you will find a link to the giveaway and the list of prizes. Julie writes fun young adult and adult romances that will keep you entertained for hours and you should definitely check them out.

playingTitle: Playing Chase [Amazon]
Author:  Julie Prestsater [books]
Publisher: Self Published
Genre:  Adult Contemporary
Source/Type: Author/eGalley
Stars: 4 of 5

Book Description:
There are many words that have been used to describe Chase Marino: cheater, backstabber, dirt bag, heart breaker. He earned those titles cheating on his high school love Shelly and his co-worker Summer. He broke both their hearts and knows it’s his lot in life to make it up to them somehow. But while the ladies intend to make his life miserable, Chase is pretty good at doing it to himself. With his dad around treating him like a frat brother rather than a son, it’s easy for Chase to beat himself up over the shameful mistakes he made in the past.

That is until Tiffany Gutierrez, the new student teacher arrives. Feeling an immediate attraction to the young beauty Chase does everything in his power to fight it and do the right thing for once. But when Tiffany shows the attraction is mutual all bets are off. Chase soon realizes that while he’s teaching Tiffany how to be a good teacher, he’s learning a thing or two from her as well. Maybe it’s time to move on and let go of the past and realize that he may just deserve a real shot at love.

My Thoughts:
So I’m a lucky kid. I got to read this book back and June when Julie was still drafting it. That’s what happens when you are friends with the author. And yes, that is my disclaimer. I am friends with the author. Just getting that out there so you know, but also know that my thoughts on this story have nothing to do with that friendship. I genuinely enjoyed this book.

When Julie first told me that she was going to write a 4th book in the Against the Wall series and it was going to be about Chase, I basically wanted to slap her upside the head and tell her no! Chase had to have been the worst character ever in the other 3 books. I really really hated him and how he treated Shelly and Summer. He was the biggest jerk ever. But in pure Julie fashion, she made me a believer in Chase. And by the end of Playing Chase I actually liked him and thought he was just misunderstood and it was a product of his environment that he did stupid things.

Playing Chase is the story of Chase Marino, the cheater that broke Shelly’s heart in Against the Wall and Summer’s heart in Straddling the Edge. He is selfish and a dirt bag and deserves everything he gets thrown at him from Summer, Shelly and Shelly’s best friend Mel. He knows this and has resigned himself to the fact that they plan to make his life miserable. Until Tiffany Gutierrez, his new student teacher, enters the picture. Fighting his immediate attraction to her Chase does everything he can to stay away because he knows his pattern and what he does to the women he cares about. But as Tiffany gets closer to him he starts to rethink his position and the reasons he does the same thing over and over to the women he supposedly loves.

Really Playing Chase is the epitome of a growth story. Although Chase was only a background-ish character in the first couple of books, he was a huge part of the story. Without him the girls wouldn’t have found their loves. But Chase was also just a horrible person. But Playing Chase really changes that. When you finally get to see Chase’s home life and inside his head you start to see him as a person and I think that was the truly remarkable part of this book. Without that you wouldn’t get to see the real Chase. The Chase that has feelings and worries about hurting other people. And the chemistry between Tiffany and him is so so good. I actually found myself, for the first time since meeting him, cheering him on and wanting him to get the girl and that is all thanks to Julie’s incredible story telling. She got it and made sure her readers got it.

Basically this fourth and final(?) book in the Against the Wall series was a nice finish to a fun tale of teachers and what happens outside the classroom. I loved how everything came together and how it all worked as a whole. Julie brought us on a fun and unforgettable journey that I enjoyed and I think you will too.

Second Chance Sunday – So I’m a Double Threat by Julie Prestsater

Today’s Second Chance Sunday is So I’m a Double Threat, a self published book I found 2 years ago that I just fell in love with. And in the terms of full disclosure I’m going to come right out and say that Julie is a friend of mine. I want that on the record. But I also want it on the record that I didn’t become friends with Julie until after I found her book/series/books and loved them. Since then I have been privy to ARCs of her stories, the pleasure of writing the description for them, and I was even written into the series. But really The Double Threat series is just a fun read that makes you happy you aren’t in high school anymore and makes you want to feel those sparks when you are just falling in love all over again. Alex…I want to choke you sometimes, but I still ♥ you to pieces!

Title: So I’m a Double Threat (Double Threat series) [Amazon]
Author: Julie Prestsater [website]
Genre: Contemporary
Publisher: Self Published – Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
Source/Type: Purchashed/eBook
Stars: 5 out of 5

Description:
Megan Miller, a freshman at Carver High and a Double Threat, the perfect combination of smart and popular. She’s got the grades, she’s got the friends, and she’s got the connections. Freshman year should be a breeze, but it’s not. How can it be when you have boys, boys and boys on the brain. And really only one in particular. Alex Aguilar…the boy of Meg’s dreams. They met at a party and Meg’s whole world shifted. The spark was there, there was no denying it. But could that spark lead to more? Can a Senior and Freshman really make a go of it no matter what kind of connection they share? Or will outside circumstances ruin not only Meg’s Freshman year, but her chance at hooking the guy of her dreams. Being a Double Threat is supposed to make you special, but is it worth it if you don’t get your crush?

My Thoughts:
What to say about this book?!?! I mean really, what can I say about a book that makes me smile months after reading it! I loved it, just completely loved it.

I had had my NOOK for only a few months when I started to get into reading YA books. Anyway I was scanning the books available when I came across So I’m a Double Threat. The subject seemed interesting enough and the price couldn’t be beat so I got it. Well THANK GOODNESS I DID! This book was seriously awesome! It has everything a good YA book should have to keep a reader interested.

You start with a core group of girls that are best friends and starting their freshman year. They are nervous and excited and aware of the fact that things are going to change…and change they do. Instead of it being just them, boys get added to the mix and then everything is different. They all of a sudden find themselves having to navigate through not only the pressures of school but back stabbing, crushes, fights, uncertainties and Moms that are obsessed with NKOTB(not that I can blame them! :-)) and Ryan Seacrest. As time progresses they find their groove and their place, but things are forever different.

As there are many characters in this amazing story of growing up, Meg and Alex are my favorites. They start as uncertain acquaintances, morph into friends and then go from there. Watching all the shifts in their relationship was so fun and nerve wracking and left me wanting more and still does.

Julie Prestsater crafted such an amazing story that I instantly fell in love and makes me want more. And honestly sometimes makes we wish I was back in high school. I said sometimes. 😉

A definite must read! Do it! You won’t be disappointed!
