So, I thought I would help her out in promoting these fantastical thrilling serial novels, Sherry's being kind and generous enough to do a guest post here on A Soul Unsung: Book Gossip for the Soul in order to share the good news with all of you awesome booklovers out there.
She's compiled a few of her favorite moments from the first two Young Adult books in the thrilling and romantic Spellbound series for you guys. So sit back and enjoy the excerpts!

I'm totally sure she would love to know this.

Excerpt from BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN – “Initial Glimpse”:
The hottie sat down and reclined, stretching out his arms on the back of the bench. He crossed his legs in the dude-esque, one ankle-over-the-opposite-thigh leg cross, and I caught a glimpse of his black motorcycle boots. The skin on his face was fair and smooth, and only his strong, square jaw saved his features from femininity. Gorgeous—a ten on a scale of Abercrombie model hotness. Tall, too, with dark blond hair and amazing emerald eyes.He turned his head, his gaze capturing mine. My face flamed, interrupting my ogling. His eyes widened, then narrowed. Once those hypnotic eyes seized mine, the atmosphere shifted and, for a moment, my heart ceased to beat. The intensity of his stare seemed to quiet all the thoughts and emotions whirling around inside my head. The lingering anxiety from this morning vanished.


After who knows how long, he slowly, almost reluctantly, turned away. He kept his head down like he had something to hide. Something he didn’t want people to see. Something he didn’t want me to see.I stared at his profile. Why had his attitude changed when he caught me gawking at him? Did he think, without even talking to me, that he was so far out of my league that we weren’t even playing the same game? Or worse…had he already heard the rumors surrounding my family?“Who’s the guy?” I whispered to Ariana, jerking at the sleeve of my sweater to make sure my scarred forearm remained covered. The skin tingled and burned again.Ariana snickered. “The hottie with the green eyes is Trent Donovan. Fallen Oaks’s newest bad boy.”
Excerpt from BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN – “Meet the Kitten”:
“Ah, poor baby. Are you hungry?” I asked, and the kitten loudly meowed. “Can we feed her?” I glanced at Trent with a pouty expression. “Please?”He shook his head, throwing up his hands. “Sure. There’s milk in the kitchen. I’ll be right back.”Trent returned with a bowl of milk and set it on the floor. I lowered the cat and she greedily lapped up the milk.
“She’s cute,” Trent said.
The ball of fluff raised her head, licking white drops off her mouth.“What should we name her?” I hoisted the kitten and cuddled her in my arms.
Trent wrapped one arm around me and scratched under the kitten’s white chin. “How about Charm?”
My heart skipped a beat and I melted into the crook of his arm. “It’s perfect.”
He rubbed the cat behind her ears. “I’d rather have a dog,” he teased.I covered the cat’s pointy ears with my hands. “Shhh, Charm will hear you.”
Trent grinned, then took the kitten from my arms and surprised me by kissing Charm’s head. He set her on the floor and grasped my hand…


Excerpt from BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN – “A Kiss”:
His hands gripped my shoulders and he yanked me against him, his mouth covering mine in a deep kiss. The caress of his lips was softer than I’d imagined. An unfamiliar rush of yearning engulfed my senses. My hands wrapped around his neck, fingering his silky hair. His firm lips seared a path along my neck, igniting a blaze of desire that flooded my skin everywhere they lingered. My heart pounded. Then his mouth found mine and my whole body tingled. He touched my face softly with his fingertips, holding me in place. My own fingers caressed his face, his neck, grasped onto his shoulders. My nails dug into his shirt as I kissed him back. I was overcome with heat and yearning. I pressed myself closer to him, knowing all the while that we could be caught at any moment by his uncle, but I didn’t care.Boys had kissed me before, but not like this. Never like this…

Thank you so much for letting me chat up my YA series with all of you. It’s been an honor to share my favorite moments from the first two books in the Spellbound series.

Wishful Wednesday's featuring One Song Away by Molli Moran

Today, I'm really super excited because I get to talk about two things that I love - reading and one of my favorite Indie author's, the fabulously talented Molli Moran. You might recognize her from her previous debut New Adult novel, As You Turn Away (The Walker Boys #1), which is a swoon-worthy southern romance filled with epic amounts of charm and appeal. This Fall she's revisiting that world with a novella, As We Fall Together (The Walker Boys #1.5), that will kind of be the continuation of Jonah and Quinn. Earlier this year, she left them in a place where they would be alright, a place in their hearts where they could breathe again - could find love in one another despite their many flaws or faults. This time, we'll get to see them grow closer together, learn how to work through their problems, and grow as individuals. I have no doubt it's going to be one of the most beautiful journey's ever, but then again I never doubted Molli's ability to tell a beautiful story.

At this point, I think it's safe to say that she's cornered the market on New Adult contemporary southern romance. Next month, she's releasing her sophomore novel entitled One Song Away, beautifully written, stunningly poignant and enchanting. I was one of the lucky few who was given the chance to beta read it before anyone else got the chance to read and review it. If you would like to see my review for it, you can click through to Goodreads. I am so excited to be sharing this book with you, because it's one that I'm definitely anticipating. So, if you love New Adult contemporary romance novels with southern flare, swoon-worthy handsome men, epic friendships that last a lifetime, and so much then this is the novel for you. It's dropping December 1, 2014 and you can pre-order it just in time to read it for Christmas or you know, give as a gift to someone else you think may like it.

She needs a fill-in boyfriend. He needs a favor. It’s the perfect, no-strings arrangement until they both realize it’s too real…

Sophie-Claire Wright’s life is like a bad country song on repeat. She keeps running into her cheating ex, her songwriting career isn't taking off, and her roommate just kicked her out of their apartment. With nothing to lose, she decides to do the one thing she said she’d never do: she moves back home. She left her small Southern town with big dreams, but now she’s going home with empty pockets.

Life moves at a slower pace in Sophie’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it hometown, but her well-meaning, matchmaking mama doesn't have a slow gear. Sophie invents a boyfriend to hold off her mother’s efforts, but she’s out of luck when her mom wants to meet him. Sophie panics until she runs into Jake Cooper. Her high school crush (and former best friend) is back in town, too, and when he asks her for a favor, she agrees...on one condition. He says he’ll be her fill-in boyfriend, so it should be simple: re-introduce him to her family and then “break up” with him after a few weeks.

Sophie is sure she’ll be able to resist Jake this time. Sure, she was in love with him years ago, but that was then. This is now, no matter how great he looks, or how she feels around him. But she didn't bargain for moments that feel all too genuine. Dates that don’t seem fake. Kisses that leave her shaken and wanting more. Sweet moments where she forgets they aren't really dating. And she didn't count on old feelings resurfacing and complicating their arrangement—which is starting to feel less like acting and more like the real deal.

Soon, Sophie can’t tell which kisses are real or fake, but she knows she’s in deep...and she thinks Jake is, too. When she gets a chance to go back to Nashville and chase her dreams again, she has a choice to make: stay or go? Continue hoping that the life she wants is one song away, or finally write her own song?

If you would like the chance to be able to review a digital galley of One Song Away, you can request one through Netgalley. Molli is also a part of a HUGE INDIE AUTHOR'S GIVE THANKS GIVEAWAY over on her blog, which you can find here. There are four different prize packs and they range from YA+ to New Adult and they're all pretty amazing books from what I can tell. I feel like we should try and support our Indie Author's a little bit more and show them just as much love, as we show our really well established author's who've been picked up by the major publishing houses. Sometimes, if you look long enough and put a little more effort into digging, you just might find a diamond in the rough that's in the form of some of these amazing authors. 

So, what book are you anticipating next? Drop me a comment and let me know. :)

Breaking the Rules (Pushing the Limits 1.5)
by Katie McGarry 
Release Date: 12/08/14
Harlequin Teen

A summer road trip changes everything in this unforgettable new tale from acclaimed author Katie McGarry.

For new high school graduate Echo Emerson, a summer road trip out west with her boyfriend means getting away and forgetting what makes her so... different. It means seeing cool sights while selling her art at galleries along the way. And most of all, it means almost three months alone with Noah Hutchins, the hot, smart, soul-battered guy who’s never judged her. Echo and Noah share everything

— except the one thing Echo’s just not ready for.

But when the source of Echo’s constant nightmares comes back into her life, she has to make some tough decisions about what she really wants — even as foster kid Noah’s search for his last remaining relatives forces them both to confront some serious truths about life, love, and themselves. 


Now, with one week left before college orientation, jobs and real life, Echo must decide if Noah's more than the bad-boy fling everyone warned her he'd be. And the last leg of an amazing road trip will turn... seriously epic.
