The Morning Star Review Tour Stop

                          The Morning Star by Tania Penn Review

Book Blurb: Being the daughter of Lucifer keeps seventeen year old Dawn Belial busy. For almost her entire lifetime, she has been trying to think of a way to free her Archangel mother, Michaela, whom her father has held captive for centuries. She's also attending high school - balancing trigonometry, history, and recruiting souls for her father along with her wicked half-sister, Venus.

There has been no time for love until she meets mysterious Gabriel, a British exchange student. As they fall in love against their will, she discovers a startling secret about him, and a shocking connection to her mother that changes everything

My Thoughts: 5 star review!!! Smore please!!! I was drawn in to the book from the very beginning and had a hard time putting it down. I was quite surprised when I reached the end, hoping for more. I was drawn to the characters. Even though I've been raised Christian all my life and know the truth Dawn makes a strong believable case that "Hell" isn't nearly as bad as we make it out to be. The only element I had a hard time believing and picturing in my mind was Dawn's sister Venus being able to change race and body styles in an instant to grab a guy's attention. As long as you can discern fact from fiction and strong in your beliefs I recommend this book to everyone even mature Christian readers!

*I received a copy from the author with no expectation of a positive review!*

Author of debut young adult novel, The Morning Star. Currently working on the sequel, Equinox, as well as a chick-lit, rom-com, slightly sleazy and funny story with a twist, Catching Frogs. And, because I'm loco in the roco, I've got about 12 more on the back burner. When I'm not writing I can be found kayaking, hiking, ninja-training, traveling, and taking a ferry over to the San Juan Islands to search for the elusive creature known as the "Orca." I also am constantly adding ridiculous wants, needs, must-see's and do's to my ever expanding bucket book.

I covet a delicious malbec with a rare steak and make a killer salsa.

The Kiss Off Cover Reveal

The Kiss-Off  (Book 1)

Sarah Billington 
Genre: YA

WARNING: Sexual references, occassional coarse language.

When sixteen
year old Poppy Douglas writes a song about her ex-boyfriend Cam and
ex-friend Nikki, she has no idea that her heartbreak is about to
go global. 

A local band picks up her song from Youtube
and soon she’s along for the ride with her own fanbase as they
blow up on the local club scene and hit the international
charts. Though it turns out leaving Cam behind isn’t as easy
as she had hoped. 

Tangled in a web of unfinished homework,
ill-considered sexting and a new lead-singer boyfriend, Poppy has
a choice to make between the ex that inspired it all and the
rock God whose poster lines the inside of half the lockers at school.
But as she struggles to keep her emotional dirty laundry private,
she learns that the truth can be hard to find when your life is in
the headlines.


The Kiss-Off 2: Over It (Book 2)

Sarah Billington 
Genre: YA Contemporary

Warning: Sexual References, occasional course language.

Youtube song writing sensation Poppy Douglas's lead singer boyfriend
Ty's been criss-crossing the country and living it up on tour for
months while Poppy has been stuck in the boring suburbs, finishing out
the school year.

But it's Summer now, and the best thing just happened:
Poppy's royalties for writing the hit song The Kiss Off just came in.

She's minted, and she knows just what she's going
to blow it on.

Ty's band Academy of Lies are headlining a summer
music festival, and Poppy is taking her girlfriends along for the best
weekend of their lives. It's all organized: the weekend is going
to be full of camping under the stars, backstage passes, VIP rooms and
partying like rock stars, not to mention some long awaited one-on-one
time with America's favorite front man.

Except, when someone drops out of the trip and Poppy
takes the opportunity to mend a broken friendship, it doesn't quite
go according to plan.

And when she meets her boyfriend's BFF from another
band, the paparazzi form their own totally wrong conclusions. 

There's also the matter of Ty's 'super fan' stalker,
but the less said about her the better.

The biggest test of all comes in the form of an
opportunity too good to pass up. But will insecurities and jealousy
stand in Poppy's way? 
Can Poppy and Ty's relationship even survive it?
is about to get much more complicated for Poppy Douglas, but what can
you expect when your boyfriend is a rock star?
