#CoverRevealSynopsis:
One break is all The Crow Brothers need and we’re about to get it.
Johnny Outlaw, rock legend and lead singer of The Resistance, is here to watch us play.
But he’s not the only familiar face in the crowd—killer little body, heart-shaped face, and
drop-dead gorgeous.
Hannah Nichols sitting at the bar makes it hard to concentrate, sparks already
reigniting. The beauty was never a groupie and tonight she’s not here to catch our show.
She came to drop a bomb. “You have a son.”
What is it about musicians? Why are they so damn sexy?
My heart was Jet Crow’s the moment he opened his sexy mouth and sang that first
song. One stolen night with that man would never be enough, but I’m not here to fall into
his bed. Again. I’m here to fight for custody of a son he’s never known.
There’s just one problem. Those sparks between us have become flames. If we’re not
careful we’re both going to get burned.

My Review of After Care:

After Care is an amazing emotional roller coaster that you will want to keep reading 📖 over & over. Edie is starting a new chapter in her life with a family vacation to Hawaii with her son Caleb & daughter Masie. Edie is celebrating several milestones in her life; surviving breast cancer, a divorce & watching her children spread their wings & fly. She was befriended by a young mother name Ivey who was wife to the lead singer Gage Everly of the Band Collison; which had her children over the moon & laughing with her because she was clueless. Then Tommy Carrigan happened & Edie feeling things that she thought disappeared after turning 43. Can this romance survive her insecurities & Tommy’s Rock Star life style & secrets. You’ll just have to join the tour & find out what life has in store for Edie & Tommy 💖 Make sure you put After Care on your TBR list. Thank you L.B.Dunbar for another beautiful and touching story.

The Man In The Black Suit by Sylvain Reynard

I want to thank Sylvain Reynard for inviting me & my blog to be apart of his highly anticipated release of; The Man In The Black Suit. 🎶 Long cool woman in a black Dress played in my head as I read this amazing story:< strong>Have your passport ready for this will take you on a trip of a life time. From page one this story had you hanging on tightly, following the mystery, danger and the awakening of two Souls that have been hiding for years. Acacia pretending to be someone else not only to fit in and trying to keep prejudice against her at bay but also to keep dangers from her past keeping her & her mother safe. Nicholas aka Pierre Breckman, has been hiding in his quest to avenge a wrong against his family and to avenge the death of his sister Riva. Acacia and Nicholas first meeting well let’s just say it was a bit chilly but a misunderstanding throws them together and they learn to trust one another. Acacia shows Nicholas that injustice can be fought/resolved without violence; and Acacia is made aware that sometimes things happen out of ones control. Sylvain Reynard has a way with his writing to highlight social injustice and reminding the reader we need more kindness and tolerance in the world. SR also knows how to write romance and love; while highlighting art,and history. I hope you go on this Journey with Acacia & Nicholas, your heart will be changed forever. Thank you SR for letting me be apart of the ARC reading of TMITBS, I hope my review does your story justice. < strong>Karen Komarinski aka (KK) I will cook to read !< >< strong>LINKS:<<<<<<< a href=”http://hyperurl.co/6qlz7i”>hyperurl.co/6qlz7i<<<<<<<<<<<<&lt; a href=”https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fhyperurl.co%2Fr1flgr&h=ATNnNe3RpMxuVkjd18P8XEeWbTapv-OmKrcjPwdEjmfFovBCBAd17-8fcjr0e8KI_k9hFBpDigIN6_T5wBTpub1IgUAT1L7c8sFUVProppt9dF6-NZmSu85WkyR-6lWfs1yig32wVXAJOi9MmhtqgMw16emoKUu1mafpgKS7K71uck7pu-BO39Hfj2uN7GWlSafNSJaDBA5EKfkNULU_uB7LU4mL8FP9qQkfKCabnxrKYctgr4Dyn3vZ8Xqs5ksxo6s8GqyFdM2_wm5QWgQ_ZP5SH3NPF85bt-X2vq-bEvFf7NJj”>hyperurl.co/r1flgr<<<<<<<<<<<<<&lt;

REDEMPTION ISLAND

SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

I want to congratulate L. B. Dunbar on her Release of Redemption Island; every book/series she writes is fresh and thought provoking.  She has a series that will appeal to anyone & everyone.  By the end of chapter one I was a mess & had so many thoughts about how a decision good or bad can change your life in a split second.  Juliet and Tack find themselves on a secluded Island not knowing that they are sharing the same beach; while searching and seeking redemption for different reasons from the same crime.  Follow the links below and get your copy of Redemption Island.

The Island
Welcome to the island.
This is no fantasy.
You’ll face fears.
You’ll face travesty.
You’ll face yourself.
One deserted island.
Two heinous crimes.
Two convicted hearts.
When decent people do bad things,
there’s only one place for forgiveness:
Redemption Island.
The island knows what you’ve done.

About the Author
Avid drinker of Coca-Cola, L.B. Dunbar loves the sweet things in life. Her affair with all things romantic began with her first book at the tender age of six: Goldilocks and the Three Bears. One can never forget her first! From there, the reading journey includes a deep love of fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused, yes, that’s the correct word, of having an over active imagination; to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over a dozen novels, she’s created small town worlds, rock star mayhem, and MMA chaos. Her other duties in life include: mother to four growing children and wife to the one and only.

The Blessing of the Easter Basket: Happy Easter 2017

I know it’s been awhile since I posted last and i apologize;  I am reposting this page in memory of  My Father Daniel Komarinski who left this world  on

March 12, 2017, he was 84 years old.  This was his Favorite Holiday and tomorrow he will  be with us in Spirit and in our hearts.

From my Family to yours we wish you a Happy and Blessed Easter!1157739_10200753859950597_353724998_n

The Easter Basket

lIMG_0566

Saturday morning we prepared our basket of food to be blessed for Easter morning breakfast.  We would get up early so we could color the eggs and help my mom wrap the food and prepare the basket.  The family has grown so much that we now have brunch.

IMG_0565  The basket is filled with ham, kielbasa, Easter bread, colored eggs, horseradish, butter, and two kinds of cheese.  The blessed food is handled with much care, any scraps or crumbs are gathered and must be buried or burned.  Also a little bit of each blessed item is kept back for the 2nd sunday of Easter to celebrate Russian Easter ( this at one time included Byzantine Rite which now goes with the Catholic Church Calendar)

As a child Easter Sunday could not come soon enough.  We would go to 8am mass then come home for breakfast…NO candy from our Easter Baskets before breakfast ( as a kid you thought this was a cruel & unusual punishment..LOL)  

IMG_0513 Breakfast started with a blessing.  Then my dad would pass out pieces of blessed egg topped with fresh ground horseradish and vinegar.  The bitter horseradish and cider vinegar represented the death of Christ and the egg represented His life and resurrection.  I don’t know how to spell the Ukrainian phrase that we speak. When my dad would present the egg for us to eat he says in Ukrainian “Christ is Risen” and we will answer him in Ukrainian “Indeed He has”.   When we were little, this would cause giggles to break out as we would stumble over the mouth full of word for we wanted to answer my father perfectly.  My Uncle Mike, my dad’s older brother, and his wife Aunt Eleanor would spend Easter with us.  Uncle Mike would tell us to say “Easter Grass” in response as that is exactly what the phrase sounded like to us kids……We still joke about that to this day.

Scan5

Before church we would line up to have our picture taken in our new Easter outfits…Bless my parents for their patience….especially my dad.  It never seemed to fail, he would have the perfect shot and the flash bulb would not flash…We joke about the year the camera did not survive the Easter Picture.. 🙂
