Release Date: 07.13.2014 Synopsis: I’m having a meltdown. Not the put-her-in-the-loony-bin kind, but the rock-in-the-corner-so-I-can-breathe kind. Maybe they’re one and the same and I really do need to be put away, but I think I just need a little air. I’m bone tired. My eyes look like I haven’t slept in weeks. I’m eating my feelings and developing a pudge that isn’t gonna go anywhere if I keep binging on chocolate, nachos and wine.  I’m 28 and everyone has left me. I have no friends. My boyfriend left. My mom died, so technically she left me too. I hate my job.  I get this overwhelming 'oh my God, is this what my life is gonna be?' feeling and I want to die.  Curl up and die.  And since I don’t feel my heartbeat fading or my breathing getting even slightly faint, I panic that I’m gonna have to live.  Maybe Maby is a heartbreaking, and at times, hilarious story about coping with loss, finding love in New York, and learning to recognize hope in

Release Date: 10.07.2014 Synopsis: Every action has its own consequence…  Cora Whitley has learned the hard way that there are some choices you can’t escape, you merely survive.

Maybe it’s because somehow he knows she’s as broken as he is, or maybe it’s because when he looks at her he sees that the life he thought was over when his elbow blew out and his pitching career came to a halt can now be something different. Something better with her.  But nothing comes for free, not even love. Follow Cora and Jake as they piece together their lives and deal with the consequences of falling in love with the one person they know they can’t have. **Includes mature content.** Review: I liked this book a lot eve
