Hot Toddy by T.C. Collins

“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” ― Voltaire
This book!! It pulled me in and wouldn't let me leave!

Here's the review I left on Goodreads and Amazon:

What a wild story! I could NOT put this book down! The author has a way with words and from the beginning she dragged me down the rabbit hole, to a land of sparkle, riches, sex, and crazy, sexy, wild life. I was enthralled by LJ's journey and could relate to how she felt as a young 21 year old. Although my story is far different from hers, I understood her and remember those moments where the world was my oyster, but I had no idea what I was doing. Great story, fantastic characters, and a rush of a ride! 

I highly recommend this book and you should check out the author as well!

Lines of Time and Desire

If someone sent you a text saying they're from the future, would you believe them? Londyn doesn't know if this stranger with a charming personality is just pulling her leg or telling the truth, but what she does know is that it's too much fun not to play along. With her heart now on the line and dark secrets looming, will she make the right decision or will she let the love of her life disappear into time? A romantic tale of love, time, and tragedy.
