Enemies on Tap book coverEnemies on Tap (Sweet Salvation Brewery #1) by Avery Flynn

Synopsis

Brewing up trouble one pint at a time.

Enemies

What’s a girl to do when the only person who can help her is the man who betrayed her? After years away, Miranda returns to Salvation, Virginia to save her family’s brewery, but her fate is in the hands of her first lover turned enemy, Logan Martin.

Lovers

Logan, Salvation’s de facto prince, can’t believe his luck when the woman who smashed his heart to smithereens walks into his bank asking for his help. What she doesn’t know is he needs the land her brewery is on. When she tempts him with a bet—if she wins, he gives her the loan; if he wins, she forfeits the land—he knows it’s a sure thing.

An Irresistible Combination

But soon it’s a battle between their attraction for each other and their determination to win, and it’s in each other’s arms that they realize there might be more at stake now than the bet. With the town dead set against the Sweet Salvation Brewery’s success, Logan has to choose between what’s expected of him and what he really wants—even if helping Miranda means she’ll run out of his life once again.

Avery talks about how she came up with the idea for Enemies of Tap.

A.J Matthews – Goodbye to You

Goodbye to you book coverGoodbye To You by A.J. Matthews

Release Date: 07/01/14

Genre: New Adult

Synopsis

Europe? Nope. Mexico? Nope. Key West?

Not me. This summer, I’m playing nursemaid to my sister. Yeah, I know. Relatively good looking twenty-two-year-olds don’t spend the summer bedside in the cancer ward, but that’s the plan – until my sister threatens me with bodily harm unless I get on the plane.

That’s when I met him. He likes me. Really likes me. But more than that, he loves my boobs — like can’t get enough. I have no idea how to tell him that they’ll be gone soon. Courtesy of a preventative double mastectomy. Yep. That’s what testing positive for the breast cancer gene mutation will do to a girl.

But don’t feel sorry for me. I’m enjoying him, holding on until the last possible minute, while I muster up the strength to tell him, and watch him walk away.

About the Author

Goodbye to you Author AJ Matthews

I wrote my first book at six. A retelling of The Three Little Pigs, illustrated by my grandmother, the book was never picked up and was self-published instead, glued to cardboard with a cover fashioned from wallpaper scraps.

Today, I write stories featuring nice guys (or nice guys in-the-making) in between my other jobs writing research reports for a commercial real estate company, refereeing two young daughters, navigating the teen waters with a too-cute-for-his-own-good son, spoiling a neurotic cat, and making my darling, patient husband shake his head. I’m also an autism mom, chocolate enthusiast, sports-watcher, nacho-eater, and beer-drinker.

A Maryland native, I live in North Carolina now, but dreams of the beach fuel my fantasties, and my characters can often be found strolling in the sand or sailing along a coast.

Excerpt

A Dad’s Promise

“Hey, baby girl. It’s okay,” I whisper as I pick my angel up out of the crib. “Daddy’s here, and I’m never gonna let anyone hurt you. Shh!” I coo as I sway her in my arms. “You’re okay.” I carry her over to the rocking chair Danika bought for nights like this and slide down into it. She starts to quiet down as I gently rock her back and forth. “Daddy will always be here for you, baby girl. Never forget that. I love you more than anything else in this world.” I kiss her on the head and continue to rock her as she smiles up at me.

That smile is the only thing that has gotten me through this last week. Thoughts of my baby girl and her smile, so much like her mother’s, were what moved me out of that alley that night. I wanted nothing more than to die there, but Emmalyn needed me. I’m the only thing she has left. I have to be there for her. I know it’s that tiny smile that will get me through tomorrow morning.

Gadgets of the Future

Tech toys and gadgets are my favorite types of posts, and today I have some really good toys for you.

Stemless Wineglass Tray

A restaurant in Japan (of course, always Japan, Korea or China the tech giants of the world) came up with this solution for their servers to carry more wine glasses. This has nothing to do with technology, yet it shows how something so simple could be so useful. I wish I had thought of that.

Tray that carries multiple wine glasses at the same time

Stemless wineglass holder

This is not sold in the US yet, (if it is then shoot me a link).

Sunken Cellar

Speaking of wine… no self respecting wine drinker should be without this, it is just cool. Talk about space saving– your wine is accessed via a trap door!

Trap door in the kitchen opens to store wine

Trap door stores wine underground

 

The Spiral Cellar system was developed in 1978 by a Frenchman who saw that few modern houses had wine cellars, but that people still needed a place to store their wine. If a wine-lover has a serious collection it can quickly outgrow wine racks and refrigerator units. So he came up with the Spiral Cellar design, which uses the earth to insulate and create good storage conditions. It does this, however, in a fraction of the space of a regular cellar. It also can maintain a constant temperature with no power required.

A spiral cellar is dug into the floor by a professional team, and the cellar storage itself is created from concrete wrapped in a watertight lining. Passive ventilation keeps the temperature around 55°, an ideal temperature for wine storage. There are several sizes, holding from 1000-1600 bottles. Source http://www.thekitchn.com/

James Bond type garage

This is definitely something you can’t buy on Amazon. Ebay? Maybe.

Paved ground lifts up to reveal garage

Underground garage

This is definitely what I call a space saver. My other thought on this is that there is no room for error in parking. You have to line the car up just right.  I am guilty of parking crooked, in my defence I always park between the lines. With this I’d have to be more diligent. No thanks. What do you think?

Solar powered car charging station

I think I may have seen this somewhere in Albuquerque. That would work perfectly out here since we have 300 + days of sunshine.

Public solar car port for charging electric cars.

Solar Powered carport

Someone need to come up with a portable solar charging station for your devices. Put it outside to catch some rays, then bring it inside and plug everything in. Boom you’re good.

Hour glass traffic light

A spin on the boring old traffic lights? You can’t tell me this isn’t cool.

Traffic light shaped like an hour glass

No more light turning from green straight to red, yes it happens and I have the ticket to prove it.

Hope you enjoyed this edition of tech toys and other gadgets. Please leave your comments below, I look forward to it.

Cheers!
