Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he’s come to finish his latest thriller—that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt’s best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt’s as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn’t even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna’s come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can’t get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she’s just stopping by to say thank you, but the steamy afternoon sparks a wild and sexy ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

An Average Joe's Book Review and Giveaway

An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom offers a different perspective on money than what is traditionally taught by our parents and in our school systems. The reason there is such a discrepancy between the wealthy and the poor is due to the difference in the way money is perceived. We are not born with the ability to maintain wealth: it is something that is learned. The knowledge of knowing how to make money work to generate passive income is something that anyone can learn as long as they are disciplined. An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom is based on practical concepts and discusses the problems that the majority of us face with our personal finance.  The concepts in this book are based on theory by an author that practices what he writes about.


The author begins by informing you that nothing in the book is new; that it has all been said before. And I totally agree. I didn't learn anything new. It did though, refresh the financial knowledge that I already had, and brought it back into focus for me.

He states that retirement income comes from various entities, such as pension, 401k, and social security. The problem with this is that it is reliant upon outside factors, which means you are not truly financially free. Ideally, your income should come from passive interests.

With a history lesson showing the evolution of progress, he proves that we must change with the times or be left behind.We should set attainable short and long term goals. In order to reach those goals, we must change the way we view, save, and spend money.

I appreciate the research that went into this book. It was interesting to learn the history of money and the beginning of the gold standards. Although a lot of the information was repeated, I understand the need to be repetitive. There are even interactive exercises included. My advice is to read this book, and take charge of your financial future.

Movin' On Up

Kindle Fire
See what I got for Mother's Day? And early too. Yeah, boy! I must be doing something right. Before this, all I had was a regular Nook and was feeling a bit limited for book reviewing. This is a game changer.

As you've probably noticed, lately my blog posts have leaned more toward book tours, reviews, and giveaways, and I've enjoyed that. I believe I'll continue on this path going forward. 

So, thanks to everyone who has stuck with me so far. I look forward to sharing my reviews with you. And don't worry, I'll still throw a few of my tips in here and there.
