Dustoff 7-3 Saving Lives Under Fire In Afgahanistan by Erik Sabiston


      This is the true story of one medevac team and their work in Afghanistan.  They work near the area known as the Valley of Death. It was Dustoff 7-3's job to get the injured soldiers back to the base. After they were checked and treated, the soldiers then went to  the hospital. Each team worked with precision timing. The crew consisted of four soldiers and they went about their work quickly and quietly. The area was known for all of the action it saw.  The story is real and raw.

     First, let me address the author's statement,"I am not a hero."  He's right. they are not heroes, they are angels with nerves of steel.  I felt as if I was right there beside Mr. Sabiston as they raced  from one injured soldier to another. Mr. Sabiston grabs you from the first page and I was yelling for more of the story.  Solid writing and making sure it's in-your-face, Mr. Sabiston does a fantastic job of pulling back the curtain and giving us a REAL peek inside. Having this book on your shelf will show others just how informed you really are. Get this one and some tissues because you are going to need them. This book was eye-opening for me. I had no idea the soldiers were working under such conditions.

     I found no issues with this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it gave real a chance to see the inner workings.


MEET: Erik Sabiston


Erik Sabiston grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia before winding up living off the grid in the redwoods of Northern California. Naturally restless, he moved from one job to another working as a door-to-door salesman, music teacher and even a butcher when he eventually found his calling as a Soldier.  He led his helicopter crew during a series of miraculous rescues on one of the most dangerous operations in the history of the war in Afghanistan.

Erik also speaks nationwide at conferences, schools and events, inspiring audiences to harness the power of faith and teamwork to push themselves beyond their own limits, survive the unthinkable and acheive the impossible. 

He currently teaches the next generation of aviators to fly and fight the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter.  Home is wherever the Army sends he and his wife Tess... who still teases him about his fear of heights.

Man Up Party Boy by Danielle Sibarium

     Noah was so looking forward to a week at the beach with his best friend Cooper.  It had been awhile since he had any down time and right now, Noah needed it.  At the last minute, Cooper decides he can't go. He arranges for his sister, Alexis, to go in his place.
     Noah isn't thrilled with the idea. He doesn't want to waste a week at the beach babysitting.  He had no idea what his week would be like.  Alexis wasn't thrilled either.  Noah had hurt her when she was younger. Still, a week at the beach is an opportunity she couldn't miss. They'd each go their own way. The week might be more than either of them is ready for.

     This book is perfect for some down time of your own.  The writing is flawless and the plotting makes this a fun read. You'll zip through it before you know it.  The characters are well defined and like-able. I felt as if I were at the beach with them. You are drawn in by the first page and you'll forget the time.  We've all had that one friend of a sibling's we didn't like. Ms. Sibarium makes it easy to see why Alexis doesn't like Noah.  This book isn't just for the beach, it's for anytime you want to take a little mental vacation.*smile* Be sure to get your copy today!

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it is a book to read over and  over.

Love On The Slopes by Amy Manemann

     Jessa Hartley has a dream. She wants to own the Jackson Hole ski lodge.  She's been saving her money and the time is right. She didn't count on someone else buying the lodge. When she finds out who the new owner is, she's furious.  Jessa is not about to give in though.
     Dominic DeRenzi  needed to find a safe place to raise his son. His first thoughts were of the town where he grew up. Dom knew his son would be happy there. He can't stop thinking about Jessa though.  With a miserable and failed marriage behind him, Dom just wants to find happiness again.
     Can they let the past rest? They are closer than ever, still, Jessa isn't sure she wants Dom.

     This book is extremely well written.  The plot, the characters and the setting make this a wonderful read.  I felt like I knew what Jessa was going through.  I stayed rooted to my chair with this one. Each page leaves you hungry for more.  The story is touching and sweet, just the thing to pick up 
an otherwise ordinary day.  Ms. Manemann does a terrific job of keeping the pace up while making the reader feel as if they are watching a play or movie.  I'd love to see this one as a TV series or a couple of movies. Yes, it's that good.  I laughed at the way Jessa's brothers treated her. They provide many laughs in this book.  You'll be glad you bought this one!

     I didn't find any issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I wanted to be part of this lively group.

Million Dollar Question by Ellie Campbell

     Rosie is a single mother of two. She does her best to provide for the boys.  It would be so much easier if her ex would just send his child support on time.  Still, Rosie is happier being single.
     Oliva is living the good life. Money, prestige and power guide her movements.  She's convinced her life can only improve with each day.  
      These women are both hoping for a change.  Neither could imagine the changes life has in store for them.  Worlds apart but still they manage to have their paths entwined.  

     What a wonderful lesson this book teaches all of us.  The message being the grass isn't always greener on the other side.  I laughed a lot while reading this one and I loved it.  Terrific writing with a well plotted story and characters we can all relate to makes this one sensational.  You'll be questioning yourself the way these two women do.  I felt as if this book was preparing me for changes in my own life. You can't go wrong with this book. 

     I found no issues with this one.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5  because it really speaks to me.

Today is the release for: Constricted by Becca J. Campbell

      A brand new short story related to Becca J. Campbell’s Flawed series. This story coincides with the events in Empath (Flawed #1), and takes place in Logan's point of view. You’ll need to read Empath first to thoroughly enjoy this story.

If you haven't already, download a free copy of Empath (links below). Read on to find out more about Constricted.


Constricted (A Flawed Short Story)

Logan’s secret has been exposed. When Jade—a beautiful student at the college where he teaches—discovered the truth, he spilled the whole repulsive story. Jade’s empathetic kindness flooded him with emotions he didn’t know he had and isn’t sure he wants to deal with.
It would be the easiest thing in the world to leave and let Jade be a whisper in his past. He can exit now and regain his anonymity, or he can risk everything to stay and face her again.
It’s not an easy choice, and when he’s about to decide, a woman from his past shows up, making his decision even more difficult.
What really happened when Logan disappeared during Empath? Find out in this short story companion piece to Flawed #1.

Get your copy now:



Supernatural empathy isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade’s emotions are replaced by those of the people around her. 

Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college—and the world—with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings. 

When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her, unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal. 

Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.

Empath is now FREE on most sales channels.
