Eye Candy- Tera Lynn Childs
Eye Candy is a decadent treat for contemporary romance fans. Lydia is instantly likable with her passion for candy, ambition for promotion, and love of fashion. The plot is both poignant and comic. My one pet peeve was the “choose your man” ending, I’d rather the author made those difficult choices for me (and clearly Phelps is the right choice!). Childs’ writing is adorable and charming as she plays with words, replacing curses with candy lingo. This cute read could make you melt like an M&M, but be careful the problem with a sweet read is it always leaves you wanting more.
Eye Candy is only $2.99 for Kindle right now! Get your copy here.

Oh My Gods- Tera Lynn Childs
Oh My Gods is exactly the book I wanted to be reading this summer. Light, easy, fun, interesting. Yes please! Don’t know if you’ve noticed yet but I have a thing for mythology, in particular Greek mythology. Last week I dreamt of the Odyssey; no really, I did (Andy Whitfield played Odysseus and JLo was Circe). So clearly, with descendents of the Gods andtons of mythology references this book was my cup of tea. I’m also into running these days and that features prominently in the book as well. Greek Gods + Running = Kate’s perfect summer read (who knew?). I instantly loved Phoebe, she’s got sass and isn’t whiney in the face of adversity. WINNER! And hello, did I mention the hot boy(s)? The plot was cute though I saw the end coming a mile away. Go read this book and check back tomorrow for my review of the sequel Goddess Boot Camp.

Fins are Forever- Tera Lynn Childs
*I edited this post and then none of it saved and then this placeholder draft published and now im livid so yea here’s an abbreviated version of what I originally wrote.
Fins are Forever picks up with Lily and Quince shortly after they return in Forgive My Fins. Fans of the first book’s sea-themed expressions will not be disappointed as they remain intact in the sequel. The ending came too quickly and impetuously, a counterpoint to the ongoing questions and struggle between duty and desire from the rest of the book.
While I found this second book to be less intriguing than the first, I cannot wait for Tera Lynn’s new series SWEET VENOM due out in October! I read the extended chapter sampler: Greek mythology, fighting monsters, fancy private schools. YES PLEASE!
Fins are Forever came out on June 28th. You can get a copy here. Read the first book Forgive My Fins too. Follow Tera Lynn on Twitter @TeraLynnChilds or on her website here.
