Der er solnedgang og nybarberede ben. Alt er timet og tilrettelagt som en Olsen Banden film. Adam har planer om at fri til Liv. Men noget går galt, så frieriet kulsejler igennem aftenen, og til sidst kan det hele være lige meget. Et eller andet sted undervejs, går det galt.
Liv og Adam kan ikke bare gå hver til sit, efter det udeblevne frieri. I stedet sidder de tavse, på vej hjem i flyet fra deres ferie. Ferien som skulle være starten på et langt og lykkeligt liv. I stedet bliver det starten på en pause i deres forhold, med en rutsjebanetur igennem følelser, venskaber og karrierer. ⠀⠀
"Vi havde jo bare pause" er en dejlig befriende humoristisk chick-lidt, med romantik og masser af feel-good. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Me Before You movie based on Novel by Jo Jo Moyes @jojomoyesofficial
Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet. Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge. Taking a job at the local “castle,” she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye. No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up. That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living. Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives—and hearts—changing in ways neither one could have imagined. Collapse

☆ New Release Sale & Giveaway ☆ 'A Hamilton Christmas' by Sheila Kell is LIVE and on sale for #99c !
While some may try, no one ruins a Hamilton family Christmas.
From Romantic Suspense BEST-SELLING and AWARD-WINNING Author • What happens when a family comes together for Christmas but upon arrival, their vacation takes a deadly turn? In Sheila Kell’s novel of intrigue and the love of one family, three generations of Hamiltons work to solve a mystery that impacts one of their own.
A year has passed since the Hamiltons celebrated a holiday as one family. Blake Hamilton—the family patriarch—invited his growing family to a remote Colorado lodge for more reasons than enjoying Christmas. He should’ve known that with his sons and daughter, trouble would find them. The important news he has to share takes a back seat when one problem after another hits them.
At ten years old, Reagan Hamilton knows she’ll lead HIS when she’s old enough. In the meantime, she trains with her uncles because she wants to show everyone she will be a good agent. When she arrives at the lodge, a man catches her attention so she decides she has a mystery to solve that involves him. When a crime happens, she sneaks away while dragging her cousins to help their parents find the criminal trying to set up her cousin.
When the allegations are proved wrong, but a criminal is on the loose while the weather is working against them, can the Hamiltons protect their family, and the guests relying on them, before events are out of their control? #romancenovel#romancenovels#contemporaryromance#epiclove#ireadromance#romancereads#alwaysreading#booklover#bookaddict#ilovebooks#booksarelife#bookpassion#bookrecommendation#greatreads#bookobsessed#bookworms#totalbooknerd#booknerd#bookaholic#instaread#bookgeek#bookish#bookishfeatures#bibliophile#booknerdigans#lovebooks
Jika Aku Milikmu, Apa yang akan terjadi? (vi)
"Berapa lama yang dibutuhkan untuk mengubah keragu-raguan menjadi cinta? Mungkin tidak selama waktu yang diperlukan untuk memupuk luka." (Nur)
saya tidak akan mengulas banyak, singkat saja; cerita dari novel ini tentang kisah cinta dua insan,pada mulanya tidak ada satu dari keduanya mau mengungkapkan lebih dulu, sebab "keraguan" membuatnya tertahan ditenggorokan.
Nah, bagaimana kisah mereka selanjutnya? Baca sendiri ya. 😅
Ps. selain kisahnya yang menarik, saya suka novel ini sebab ada sentuhan musik klasiknya.

Day 15 of @ellie_darkins #romancereaderchallenge : Dream Cast! For this one, I'll share the hero and heroine from my debut sweet romance with @entangled_publishing's Bliss line, How To Seduce A Bad Boy, releasing January 14, 2019. Here's the blurb, for context: Melody Bryant has heard it all before. Sure, she's the epitome of the stereotype for a librarian. Loves order. Loves rules and deadlines. Loves books. But what she doesn't love is still being a virgin at twenty-four. Unfortunately, the only guy she's ever been interested in turned her down flat. And then left town. Eight. Years. Ago. Ugh.
Now her birthday is fast approaching and she just can't take it any longer. She's finding a guy before her birthday in five weeks or she's adopting two more cats and fully embracing becoming "the crazy cat lady." But when her latest date ends in epic failure--everyone thinks of her as the "proper librarian," she realizes what she needs is to ruin her reputation. And she knows the perfect guy to help her: the baddest bad boy in town. This Army vet won't know what hit him... As Mel, I picture Emma Pillsbury from Glee (with longer, darker hair and a bit curvier). And for Adam Foster, my bad boy-- hottie Dusan Susnjar. 😊😍❤️ What's your dream cast for your favorite book? 📚🤓💜🖤💚💙💛 #harlequinbooks#millsandboon#entangledbliss#medicalromance#sweetromance#romanceauthorsofinstagram#romanceauthor#amreading#reading#instabooks#bookstagram#books#booknerd#bookworm#booklovers#bookbloggers#bookchat#bookaddict#authorsofinstagram#writersofinstagram#amwriting#romance#romancenovel

Are you reading YOU’RE THE ONE I DON’T WANT? Tell me how Boone and Annabelle are making you scream or swoon!
Day 15 #discovermmromance Challenge - Fave M/M rereads: I reread a lot! It helps me not spend so much money on books! But I find myself returning to certain authors when I’m stressed or in need of a comfort read. Joanna Chambers is one of those authors. I reread her holiday stories every year - Merry & Bright.
Also pictured: Enemies Like You by Joanna Chambers and Annika Martin and Provoked by Joanna Chambers.
Her last job won’t be a day at the beach.
Harper Barton has one reason and one reason only to be in Colombia, and it isn’t for fun in the sun. As an expert in “acquiring” antiquities, she’s been tasked with collecting a valuable necklace from a gala. The problem? A drug kingpin wants the piece for himself, and won’t let a cat burglar get in his way.
Diego Morales is in Colombia doing research for his next book. The mild-mannered professor was expecting dusty books and boring lecture halls, not a beautiful woman sweeping him onto the dance floor and planting a kiss on him before being chased out of the building by armed guards.
Harper and Diego find themselves neck-deep in trouble when they’re kidnapped by the drug kingpin, but things go from bad to worse when they both go overboard and end up lost in the middle of the Colombian jungle. Can they stay alive long enough to get home? Can they stop fighting long enough to realize there’s more than just jungle heat simmering between them?
Off the Map is high-stakes adventure with spark, snark, and plenty of danger.

New Review on the Blog!
Bulldozer by P. Dangelico #oneclick --> https://amzn.to/2z6Kvia <--
Check out my #linktreeinprofile for all of my latest FULL reviews!
This book was a sweeping slow burn romance that is not to be missed. With P. Dangelico's always fantastic writing to her lovable and complex characters, this story was emotional, sexy, funny... and entertaining as it gets.
Synopsis: What happens when a single mother is forced to live with a grumpy, ailing football star? The smolder turns red hot of course.
A standalone follow-up to the best-selling, WRECKING BALL.
Amanda Shaw has pulled it together. It's taken a couple of years, a boatload of hard work, and a ton of self-discipline, but she finally has her problems in a headlock.
Her yoga studio in the city has become so successful she's opening one near the beach, and her relationship with her ten-year-old son is improving every day.
The last thing she needs is a monkey wrench thrown into her smoothly running life.
Grant Hendricks is one big monkey wrench.
The four time Defensive Player of the Year, three time NFL sack leader, and all around football god has officially hit rock bottom.
A devastating back injury means he may have to retire and that scares him more than doctors telling him the next hit could leave him paralyzed.
All he needs is a quiet place to think and his teammate's beach house sounds like just the place. Problem is, the woman already living there.
I like reposting things that I enjoyed or have inspired me because I like to tell everyone I know about the awesome work that creatives are putting out into the world.
Here is one that I encourage everyone (especially writers) to check out because it is all about conflict between people. It's called the MIDDLE GROUND series on the Jubilee YouTube channel. I like this series because the questions and format take a more human (rather than ideological) approach to polarizing issues.
On a lighter note, Jubilee Media also has a series called TEA FOR TWO. It follows couples on blind dates as they go through 36 questions designed to lead to love in a blind date. Even if you don't buy that it can happen, the Q&A are really insightful. Single ladies, write them down and bring them on your next date.

🖤 Advice: The things you take for granted are the things others are praying for. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. Yet, often the people who we protect and take bullets for are often the same hands we'd thought would help, but they are pushing us over the hill or they are standing behind the trigger. It's never good if you have a concern or complaint, and the other person(s) quickly moves the conversation to all the things you’ve done wrong since the beginning of time while being insulting or they dismiss your thoughts all together. Instead of discussing your issue(s) they find fault with you. Then of course you will find yourself on the defensive and an argument will ensue. Understanding and seeing each others perspective is key. Appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had. 💯
