Kissing and Cookies Day!


It's Kissing and Cookies Day!!! One of my favorite days of the year!!! 

I admit, I don't spend much time cooking, but there's one cookie that I'm willing to take a break from writing for to make. It's my mom's sugar cookie recipe, and they're the same sugar cookies Kate's mom, Sophie, makes in The Devil Drinks Coffee! I only make them a few times a year because eating them requires me to spend so much extra time with Jillian Michaels...but, Valentine's Day is one of those times! In honor of kissing and cookies, I'm sharing the recipe with you!

Happy Valentine's Day, my fabulous friends!

Book Blast-Cruel Intentions, by Dawn Pendleton!


Cruel Intentions is the 5th book in the Best Friends Forever Novella series.

Blurb:

Cheyanne Hanley picked the wrong boy to lose herself to three years ago. She should have chosen Roman's brother, Reece, instead. When the opportunity to have Reece presents itself, though, she doesn't hesitate. And when tragedy strikes, leaving her alone and pregnant? She better get her act together before the truth finds her.

The Best Friends Forever Series follows the lives of Hazel, Cheyanne, Destiny, Miranda, Lexi, Audric, Nolan, Andre, and Roman as they attend college at Coastal Carolina in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Each novella features a new point of view, but the series revolves around all nine characters, so get to know your new BFFs!!!
