"Rose Tinted" cover reveal!

We've only got a month and a day (yep. I'm counting that day!) until the release of "Rose Tinted"! Are you guys excited? Because I sure am :) But also slightly nervous for the hate mail I know I'll receive for one or two things that will be happening. That being said, once you read it don't spoil it for anyone! I don't want to take away that moment of "I hate you Shannen!" The best thing ever was the day that Code Name: Sparkle Pony read "Rose Tinted" at work and stormed out of the office in a fit of rage over... something :) And I just can't wait for more of that! Oh the joy!


Now, before we actually reveal the cover (let's face it. No one is reading this, you guys just scrolled right down to the cover) here's a little refresher of the first gorgeous cover Rue Volley designed and Trent Davis shot! Again I can't ever thank the beautiful Andrea Fullmer enough for modelling for "Sugar Coated". She just IS Brynn. It's crazy. So here's that beauty:





And now



Drum roll please






Ta-da!!!

"Rose Tinted" in all it's awesome, epic glory!!! Thank you to Rue Volley for the gorgeous-ness that is this cover! And in case you're wondering, that's Rusty on the cover... who you don't know yet... but you'll love... or hate. She's a little awkward :)

If you haven't already done so, go add the book to your shelf on Goodreads!

The End of Feeling by Cindy C Bennett



Let me start off this post by saying I was lucky enough to read an ARC of "The End of Feeling" and seriously? SO amazing! It got me right in the feels! I then scolded Cindy for making me cry, but don't worry, we're still friends. So you should definitely give this book a read. It's beautiful and poignant and cathartic in the best possible way. Gorgeous story!


Now available: Cindy C Bennett's The End of Feeling

After missed deadlines and pushed-back release dates, it's finally here!

Benjamin Nefer seems to have it all. He’s the most popular
guy in school, the star quarterback with college scouts looking at him, his
grades are near the top of his class, he can get any girl he wants . . . but he
hides behind his dream life to mask the nightmare of his reality.

Charlie Austin is the new girl. Forced to move in with a
bitter aunt, she only wants to protect her fragile mom from the world’s
cruelty. When Benjamin sets his sights on Charlie, she’s armored against his
charm—friends warned her about Benjamin’s game of pursuing and then dumping a
long line of girls, not caring about the broken hearts he leaves behind. She
doesn’t count on how single-minded he can be when she refuses him, or how
charismatic, easing into her life through what he claims is just friendship.

Benjamin thought he could keep Charlie in the same place he
keeps all girls—something to be used and then discarded. But Charlie has as
many secrets as he does, secrets he’s determined to discover while keeping his
own hidden. He realizes she’s the perfect girlfriend candidate . . . someone he
can use to keep up the fa├žade of a perfect life. Now he just has to keep his
frozen heart from softening toward this unique girl, because if he doesn’t, his
carefully constructed lies might just come thundering down around him, crushing
him beneath the burden of feeling.

Here's what's being said about The End of Feeling


The End of Feeling is a
story that will stay with you long after you finish reading it. Haunting,
heartbreaking, in other words, another winner for Bennett!
~ Sherry Gammon, author of Unlovable

From the moment I picked it up, my heart was warmed, melted,
broken, and pieced back together again. A beautiful story that will leave you
aching long after the last page.
~ Jamie Canosa, author of Falling
to Pieces


A
tale of hope and love about a couple of teens who have every reason to believe
in neither. It's raw and real, but leaves us believing in the power of
redemption.
~ Juli Caldwell, author of Psyched

The reality both characters live makes their story
captivatingly unique, and emotionally powerful. . . Demonstrates the beautiful
truth that two people can learn to be true to themselves, no matter
what—especially while falling in love. 
~ Heather Frost, author of The Seers trilogy

The struggles in this story bring to light the
fact that beauty and truly miraculous things can be found in the everyday, and
that the most important thing any one of us can possess, is love.

Once again Cindy C Bennett's incredible talent
shines through yet another masterpiece . . . a triumphant story of love,
compassion and human strength.

Bennett brilliantly weaves the fears and trepidation of two
teens treading the hazards of acceptance, young love, and. Curl up with this
story and enjoy the ride—it's terrific.
