This OR That #Giveaway № 148 ~ Castles on the Sand by E.M. Tippetts OR Loving David by Gina Hummer #CastlesOnTheSand #LovingDavid


I have sooooo many books!

The This or That Giveaway! feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to cull my collection and to share some of the many books I have. I get to clear off some of my shelves to make room for more books and give someone else the chance to enjoy these treasures.

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


Castles on the Sand
by E.M. Tippetts
Paperback ~ Published August 2012

"A fast-paced blend of high-stakes drama and average teenage concerns (sex, appearance, friends), capped with a welcome message of hope." ~ Kirkus Reviews

If there’s one thing Madison Lukas understands, it’s pain. The pain she feels when her mother ignores her completely. The pain her best friend endures as her parents starve her as punishment. The pain of a dangerous boy whose mother has to be carried away by law enforcement on a regular basis.

She gets it. She feels the pain of others as if it were her own.

But when a mysterious man claiming to be her long lost brother appears with promises of relieving her suffering, trusting him could reveal more truths than Madison is ready for. Because the truth can hurt, too.


Loving David
by Gina Hummer
Paperback ~ Published December 2011

What would you do if someone like Ryan Reynolds or Robert Pattinson jumped into your car?

All David King wants is to enjoy a private escape from his celebrity status as a prominent and successful Hollywood actor. After a zealous fan detects David’s presence, he immediately seeks refuge in a most unconventional and comical place.

Charlotte, a romance writer, simply wants to enjoy a private retreat with her friends. She is eager to begin her quiet, secluded vacation in picturesque Lake Arrowhead with her fellow authors. Never did she expect to have a strikingly handsome celebrity accompany her on her trip as a surprise stow-away.

Soon, Charlotte and David begin a friendship that develops into a loving relationship. Although to some their love may seem effortless and perfect, their journey is not without obstacles.

Olivia, a beautiful Hollywood actress and former lover of David’s, wants David back in her arms and her bed. Although David tries to reassure Charlotte of his feelings for her, Charlotte’s insecurities continue to resurface and threaten their relationship. David and Charlotte continue to overcome many struggles until they are faced with one of life’s most bitter trials. As the story unfolds, their tale becomes something different, with much higher stakes. Will love be worth the risk of heartache?

Loving David is a tender story about taking risks in love and discovering beauty in tragedy. Gina Hummer writes with brilliant intensity about how bittersweet life and love can be. Her pronounced message carries a powerful lesson about the joy that comes when we offer ourselves a chance to love. The result is a deeply moving account of the tender moments in life that affect us all. 

Refined with a beauty that is rarely found in today’s contemporary fiction, Loving David establishes Gina Hummer as a classic author with a brilliant insight into the emotions of her audience, while connecting them to the only emotion that ever really matters.
