Christmastime Blues

Pinterest has ruined me! It is official. I see all these beautiful crafts that I would LOVE to make. All these sweet little creations that these kids create. I want that! I want a Pinterest perfect Christmas? Is it even possible? Who has the time or the money to do all that work? I work 12 hour shifts. I barely have time to sleep little on decorate my TINY house to the 9's. I have 2 boys, 1 of which is Autistic. I'm a MOM and I feel like a COMPLETE FAILURE. I look at all these people who have it all together and I want to be like that. Is it too much to ask for to not have to stress over paying for Christmas gifts. I WANT a picture perfect house and children who pose for all those beautiful pictures. But, I WON'T change my kids for anything. I NEED to step away from Pinterest. All it does is depress me. Pinterest you are the DEVIL.

NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BEST SELLING AUTHOR TONI ALEO PRESENTS THE NEXT INSTALLMENT IN THE ASSASSINS SERIES...

 

LACES AND LACE

 

Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other…or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love?

 

Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she’s most passionate about. She’s a fighter, a survivor, and has everything she’s ever wanted but the one thing that matters most—love.

 

Karson is doing the one thing he loves most—playing hockey for the Assassins, yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago—Lacey.

 

Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present, and a possible future?

 

Can two people with fate on their side find a way back to each other? Overcome all the obstacles in their way to finally live life together to the fullest?

 

Or will they let those around them and the circumstances they face, along with questions and doubt, ruin a second chance at the life they both deserve?

 

Laces and Lace includes the prequel Tangled in the Laces, a dollar of your purchase will be donated to the Nashville Predators Foundation.

PRAISE FOR LACES AND LACE....

 

"I feel that Laces & Lace was one of the best books in the series, not only because it revolved around heavy matter, but also because it drug you through emotional turmoil and struggles and it wasn’t happy go lucky easy." ~ Amazon Reviewer: Kris

 

"Laces and Lace is a story of survival, bravery, and endearing love. A story of when two people collide and life without the other is miserable. After I read the prequel to Laces and Lace I was dying to read the full novel. This story touched my heart and I urge you to go get your copy!" ~ Brittany @ Spare Time Book Blog

 

"This is such a great read, with more steam than most of Toni's books! And so many laugh out loud moments, seriously - JT needs his own book, and it needs to be amazingly hilarious because I couldn't stop laughing! Overall? Laces and Lace was well worth the wait!!" ~ For Love and Books "Jac"
