This summer, it's time to get your e-book on! And as much as we all love the feel of a good book in our hands and that new book smell (or maybe that's just me?) downloading a book is just easier. And faster. And simpler. And doesn't take up any space in our luggage when we travel! Not to mention, they're often sold at bargain prices (like the ones on this list!) So this summer whether you're going on a vacay or a staycay, here's a list of entertaining e-books that you should download-stat!
Disclaimer: There's some shameless self promotion involved because *cough* my second that I co-wrote with Liz Fenton, The D Word is on this list! But hey, what can I say? I want y'all to read it! Because I care what you think. And there's an exciting contest involved too. Head over to Chick Lit Is Not Dead-after you read this article- for the deets!
As a spiritual counselor, newly single mother Jordan Daniels makes her living predicting other people’s futures. If only she could foresee her own. A year after filing for divorce from her husband, Kevin, he seems to be the one moving on effortlessly, while Jordan still can’t bring herself to fill his old underwear drawer. But it’s not until Jordan’s polar opposite, Elle steals Kevin’s heart, that Jordan becomes convinced she’ll be replaced both as a wife and a mother to her five-year-old son, Max. When Elle met Kevin, the last thing she wanted was another relationship. Especially not with a man with baggage-she already had enough of her own. She left her fiancé, Chase right before their wedding to avoid the imminent D word, something she’s convinced runs in her family like a disease. But a year later, she’s no closer to becoming less skeptical about marriage. And despite her attachment to Kevin and his son, when Elle sees just how far Jordan’s willing to go to win Kevin back, Elle starts to question if she should have left Chase in the first place. In The D Word you’ll walk in the shoes of Jordan and Elle as they discover that sometimes you’re not that different from the person who makes you feel the most insecure.
