Fractions of Existence
by J
Lenni Dorner
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance


Once they were
humanity’s exalted protectors— now they are being hunted.

Xavier will weigh all human life against Gwendolyn’s ignorant happiness.
The good
news is that her choice can blow his away.
Omnipotent beings find each other while
playing an online game. Xavier has been
searching for Gwendolyn, his true mate and the missing member of the
Existence. Only if reunited can the group regain the rest of their
memories and access all of their powers. Hidden in plain sight,
disguised as humans, they help who they can, as best they can, when
they can.
The Eyes in the Shadows, a religious sect, has been trying to free humans
from the “prison” of life on Earth for millenniums. The Existence
has always been able to thwart them… until now. They’ve discovered
a way to end the world that no one will see coming.
Gwendolyn has her future all laid out. There is a plan. She knows what
her
parents want for her and how to get it. Then Xavier, a friend from a
virtual game, makes her question everything. He’s full of secrets,
one being an understanding of her fear of the wind.
She tries to suppress her intense attraction to the mysterious and
frustrating Xavier. She’s engaged, after all, and the thoughts she’s
having aren’t proper. Gwendolyn is swept into a whirlwind of secrets,
danger, and a forbidden attraction. She’ll drive across the countryin her beat-up old car, not knowing if he is genuinely interested or
just being polite. (He refuses to kiss her!) Gwendolyn’s journey is
full of self-doubt, sacrifice, and dark visions that invade her
sleep. Will she uncover the truth about herself?

The
Forgotten Ones
by
Steena Holmes
Genre:
Psychological Thriller
 
Elle
is a survivor. She’s managed to piece together a solid life from a
childhood of broken memories and fairy tales her mom told her to
explain away bad dreams. But weekly visits to her mother still fill
Elle with a paralyzing fear she can’t explain. It’s just another
of so many unanswered questions she grew up with in a family
estranged by silence and secrets.
Elle’s
world turns upside down when she receives a deathbed request from her
grandfather, a man she was told had died years ago. Racked by grief,
regrets, and a haunted conscience, he has a tale of his own to tell
Elle: about her mother, an imaginary friend, and two strangers who
came to the house one night and never left.
As
Elle’s past unfolds, so does the truth—if she can believe it. She
must face the reasons for her inexplicable dread. As dark as they
are, Elle must listen…before her grandfather’s death buries the
family’s secrets forever.

PlateJoy is the meal planning service I never knew I needed until now

This post is sponsored by Platejoy. any opinions expressed are my own

I’m a mom of 4 busy kids and I also happen to work outside my home as well.  The idea of having a home cooked meal ready everyday was almost alien to me.  My typical day starts at 7 am and doesn’t end until about 10 pm.  There are days where it’s not quite as hectic so I do make a good home cooked meal.  Other days it was usually spaghetti, pizza, chicken nuggets, whatever I could throw together quickly.

Then Platejoy fell in my lap.  Honestly, I didn’t expect much.  I figured, if nothing else, maybe I’d get a few new meal ideas.  I didn’t know that I would use it consistently. Then I registered and got started and my mind changed about meal planning services.

Platejoy customizes your meal plan to you and your family.  You can customize by family size and it gives you the right ingredient amount, you can exclude ingredients you know you don’t use, you can choose a specific diet such as gluten-free, diabetic, keto, kosher, etc.  You can exclude allergen ingredients, you can even choose how many meals you want Platejoy to plan for a week. Maybe you only want 2 meals because you have the rest covered.  Maybe you want a new recipe every day.

Another thing I liked was that you can purposely choose to have a recipe that will make extra for leftovers.  I totally chose this option. Because on those crazy days I NEED this option.   The recipes are not difficult at all.  The first one I made was a batch recipe: Cheesy chicken broccoli quinoa casserole.  No it didn’t look exactly like the picture but it was good. And the recipe made A LOT. It made plenty for my family of 6 and a bunch more for leftovers.

There was easy lunch recipes like the avocado, black bean, and rice burrito. So simple but so good. I ended up having it for lunch 2 days in a row.  Tonight’s dinner was Greek beef skillet with roasted cauliflower.  So good and I can’t wait until my hubby gets home from work to try it.

Not only was I able to customize the amount of portions for my family but I was able to put in there that my  hubby and I are trying to lose weight so it gave us healthier recipes.  I’m also able to track the recipes I make to my Fitbit which definitely helps with staying accountable.  Perfect for those with New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier or lose weight.

To sum up, here are my Top 10 reasons I love Platejoy:

  1.  customize my meal plan to my family size
  2.  exclude ingredients we don’t/won’t use
  3.  printable grocery list to make shopping for your meal plan a breeze
  4.   Update your “virtual pantry” so Platejoy knows what ingredients you already have
  5.   Search for recipe by ingredient
  6.   Can track your meals to your Fitbit to stay on track
  7.   Choose recipes portions so you purposely have left overs for those busy days
  8.   New recipe ideas every week
  9.    Exclude allergens in recipes such as peanuts
  10.    Platejoy app makes it easy to look up recipes, change meals at the last minute, and more

 

If you’d like to try Platejoy there are tons of Platejoy coupons and deals available for Platejoy on Dealpotr including a 10 day free trial!
