HAUNTED LOVE by Jessica Frances BOOK BLITZ with Xpresso Book Tours (2 giveaways incl.)

Haunted Love by Jessica Frances
Publication date: February 23rd 2015
Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance

My name is Thea Bell and I was murdered.
I always assumed that death was the end. So when my life was cruelly taken away from me, I never thought I would get a second chance to say what I needed to.
But then I was given a choice, a choice that allowed me to see the people I had left behind, and I knew I had to take it.
I wanted to say a proper goodbye. I needed justice for what happened to me.
But even in death, things rarely go to plan.
I never expected to meet him. I didn’t anticipate falling in love. I hadn’t considered the repercussions of coming back. I never realized I would put another person in danger.
I didn’t know my actions were going to haunt us forever.

My name is Detective Aiden Mercer, and I think I have gone insane.
I am seeing the murder victim of my current case alive and in the flesh, and that is simply not possible.
I can see her, hear her, touch her. She’s real to me, however I know this cannot be real. Right?
But try telling my heart that, because as I grow closer to catching Thea’s killer, I also fall deeper into trouble.
Because love is rarely anything but trouble and I know this love will haunt me forever.

 Not only do you get personalized results on what will work best for your hair type and colour, you also receive bonuses and perks all year long.
 You get multiple samples a year and sometimes you are lucky enough to get a surprise that comes to your door. Now we are talking full sized new products specific to your hair profile for you to test and try. ( They ask you to review their products after you try them, they provide the link to share your experience. Please value the gift you were given and fill out the survey or review. It is the least you can do for being given the chance to try the new product)
I just happened to be so lucky last week when such products made their way to me .
 I received their Beach Blonde line.( I was ecstatic to tell you honestly)

 Cool Dip Purifying Shampoo
- cleanses thirsty heat damaged hair , infused with energizing mint
The scent of the mint when you work the shampoo lather through your crown immediately awakens your senses .
I used about a dime sized amount and it lathered amazing . My hair is just past shoulder length, so depends on your hair on how much or less you would need from there.
The mint was was such an intoxicating scent.
My hair felt so clean and slightly energized .

Smooth Seas Detangling Conditioner
- unties knots and snags , infused with energizing mint
Was excited for the detangle aspect , seriously some days I don't know how the rats nest tangle made its way into my hair .
Again as I only condition my tips of hair I used the same dime size amount. It was actually more than enough so I dropped the amount slightly the next use . Already made the point about the mint scent, so amazing. Definitely made my tips feel softer.

Sea Waves Salt Spray
-textures for carefree toussled styles , wind swept waves or piecey perfection
( The bottle does not tell you that it smells like Coconuts , but wow, it does and you feel like you are on a Beach somewhere.)
I was most excited try this Salt Spray. I have poker straight hair and can't ever get any kind of sexy, or wind swept, and or whimsy look. Seriously the old school aerosol spray that held those hardcore 80's styles, even let me down. So I went in with caution and just enough excitment to try it but not so much that i would be let down if; like everything before didn't work.
So I towel dried my hair gave the bottle a shake and sprayed the Salt Spray in my hair( in my imagination I visited Bora Bora, seriously from the mint to then the coconut, the scent stimulation was amazing).
As suggested I toussled, crunched , scrunched, twisted ,anything to see the results.
I wash at night so of course the overnight test .Unbelievably my hair had some shape in the morning. It held the twists Ihad put in and there was actual volume to my hair. Now it lasted about 7 hours during the day in the length of my hair and lasted the entire day until washed again in my bangs . That is enough for me . So I have to suggest if you need some sort of any kind of volume and style for your poker straight, hair you have to get your hands on this Sea Salt Spray at the very least .

Thank you John Frieda for the amazing product line you allowed me to be a part of testing. These are great prooducts, well worth it and a summer must have.

Knock Down, Gut Wrenching, Squealling, Screaming Bloody Murder Tantrums

If when you awake and before you even open your eyes you wish the day goes smooth, you beg the day goes smooth, you slowly curse under your breath that a repeat to yesterday dosent happen again; then you may be living with a toddler, or what I like to call in my house the demon of the hour.
We have all been there when it gets so bad you find the only place you can hide. If you are like me you have your ear phones on and something playing in your ear other than that OMFG I have had enough of that screaming noise from hell that escapes your toddler.
You never know what will set it off. One minute you have a calm just playing along happy toddler , the next minute the hell fury rears its ugly head .
It gets there to that point of tears from yourself that you just can't take it anymore and you try so hard to ignore it but it continues on and on . You get to where you seriously can't take no more and you hear yourself screaming back "JUST SHUT UP" . Sometimes the the F word slips in there . We have all been there, if you want to lie and pretend you haven't that's your call, but I own it. I have screamed back. After 4 non stop ( and I mean non stop) hours of knock down , blood curdling screaming tyraid tantrums where you think omg if this kid doesn't stop screaming like that the cops are going to be at my door as it sounds like he is being murdered scream , you reach a breaking point.
 It always ends the same , I run to escape to the bathroom with my back to the door so he can't push his way in or open the door , with my earphones in and my phone radio blasting so loud just to escape for even 5 minutes.
Apart from the obvious safety reasons of child proofing your home , I think somewhere there was really a hint of "for when you need to escape" in the logic there somewhere. I can hide for 5 minutes knowing he is safe while I try to regroup and inhale the calm and exhale the crazy away. Most times he just pounds at the bathroom door screaming louder to get my attention . Honestly though when that happens I just turn the radio up louder and click OK with the warning of raising the volume for a safe ear level. That few minutes of distraction is all I need.
And then like nothing it becomes calm one again , in a split second. Your toddler is happy and the world is beautiful again, like within seconds. You take longer to adjust because you feel your life is in splinters . But you realize it happens . That is what toddlers do. You wish you could bounce back as quickly but you honestly feel so broken and defeated. A lesson we need to remember as adult, let it go , get over it , and move on  as quickly as it came .
I write this because we have all been , been through it and some how made it through it.
To the parents who have no escape and no one else with them to give them a true break, I not only Salute you, I am along side with you.
Working double duty with no escape is hard , tremendously hard. But , even on those days you wish you could escape or that there really were those goblins from Labyrinth that when you said the Magick words that they really would come and take your toddler away; it really truly is worth it in the end, it has to be right!
I have a truly beautiful, healthy boy and in the end its worth every moment. I am lucky enough to have these moments .

Apart from his Angry Birds obsession at the moment, my little guy has become crazed with Surprise Eggs .This isn't just the obsession of the day , he is absolutely crazed with Surprise eggs.
It is beyond fun watching the joy and excitement he displays when opening an egg with whatever treasure it holds.
I know for everyone myself included a surprise is always so much fun, but this kid is at level 1000 on the excitement, love it , got to have it scale.
Since he discovered YouTube he found the Surprise Egg videos and that is what truly started this craze. He had Kinder Surprise before and was excited but once he started watching the videos it just exploded to full grown craze. He becomes so focused on whatever video he watches. There are so many videos of unboxing, opening the playdoh covered eggs, to so many other variations. He loves to recreate the videos using the ample surprise eggs we have scattered around the house . I knew what was up when I heard from my toddler Hello YouTube when he was playing with his eggs and toys.( Oh Boy)
I love how he even has excitement with the different toys we put in each egg. So glad to have some extra plastic eggs from Easters of past.
This year Easter is going to be so much more fun and I can hardly wait myself to see his reaction to the eggs scattered all over thanks to the Easter Bunny.
I can imagine we ourselves will likely jump on the YouTube Surprise Egg Video craze. Why not, really looks like fun to me .
I tried finding kinder and Surprise eggs on line but WOW have you seen those prices. A little, bit way to far fetched , $80.00 for 24 kinder eggs .I am pretty sure they are just 20 bucks ish at Costco or something like that. It also turns out Canadian Kinder Eggs are contraband in the US. Weird but since I never actually read into it or why I just shook my head and carried on.
Just love the Magick even silly little things can bring
 The sight every morning after he realizes mommy cleaned up after he went to bed. The toys get dumped.


 Display for his apparent YouTube video recreation.
 So my toddler has some OCD esp lining up his stuff.
