Happy Summer!!! Book Giveaway #1

Hello everyone!



Summer is finally here. Most people are done with school, the sun is out (for the most part) and I for one am ready to soak in the sun! Summer is always a time where we get to relax, rejuvenate, and just generally have fun. And for us readers out there, it is a time when we can pull out those great books that have been sitting around waiting to be read! I have a special treat for you these next couple of weeks. The chance to win some awesome summer reading! So to our first giveaway without anymore ado!



Ashburn (I.C.E. Agency Series)

by Julia Erickson


This book is really a delight. It has a perfect mix of excitement, coolness, and clean romance.

I try to be careful with what I read when it comes to romance. I don’t like anything that dwells on it “too much” but this was perfect! The entire relationship is so clean and honorable but has it’s own sticky moments of humanness.

I will let you read what it is about in Julia’s own words.

Cara Stephenson, a talented graphic designer at Silver Strand Technologies, never thought she’d see her childhood best friend again… but when he suddenly reenters her life ten years later, he’s a completely different man. What is he hiding, and why should she trust him?
Bryce Reynolds is a man on a mission- a top-secret one at that! He never dreamed the girl down the street would one day become his link to the destruction of Ravenmeister, Inc.- a front for black-market arms and ammunition. Will he crumble underneath the burden of all his secrets?
When the hunt for a missing technology developer in possession of a priceless prototype drags Cara and Bryce on a high-adrenaline ride through the streets of Paris, Venice, and Munich, they must work together to find what they’re looking for… and survive the trip!


I just loved this book. Most spy thrillers today are garbage and kind of creepy if I am being honest. This book was not! It was so awesome! I am fan-girling here a little bit, but I just loved the spy stuff!

Bryce is so cool with all of his super secret spy gadgets and knowhow. He is kind, funny, but also has issues he needs to overcome. Which makes him super interesting.

Cara, also has issues but is a girl after my own heart. Feminine and she loves ruffles, but brave and smart.

The entire mystery had me on the edge of my seat and I read it in an entire afternoon and evening. Unfortunately I had to stop for dinner, but it was just so good! Then ending was so touching but I shall not speak of it! It really is a must read.

The Christian message is so effortlessly woven throughout, and its meaning so uplifting. I hope you read this book, even if you don’t win.

Another awesome thing about this book is that it was written by a dear friend of mine. But more than that, Julia is an Independent author who published this herself! I am so impressed with her work!
