Out Of Time by Jen McLaughlin

The Synopsis of ‘Out Of Time’:

Desperate to keep him…

I’ve finally gotten everything I ever wanted: love, freedom, happiness, and, most importantly, Finn. Our love is everything I expected it to be and more. We’ve finally found each other, but the world seems determined to tear us apart. We thought my father was the only obstacle between us, but now it’s the military. With Finn’s departure looming, we’re squeezing in every moment together before we run out of time.

Trying to make every moment count…

Being Carrie’s bodyguard was one thing. Being her boyfriend is another. Every day she’s mine is a day the sun shines in my life. Yet our time together is running out. Her father will never think a tattooed Marine will be good enough, so I’ll do whatever it takes to be worthy of her love. But the road will take me away from the girl who makes me feel alive–the girl I can’t live without.

Time only gets us so far…


My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘OUT OF TIME’:

I truly enjoyed reading ‘Out Of Time’, the sequel to ‘Out Of Line’ by Author Jen McLaughlin because any novel that can invoke strong feelings whether happy or sad, deserves praise.  As the reader, there is a good chance you will find yourself emotional invested with the main characters Carrie Wallington and Griffin ‘FINN’ Coram. You’ll be happy to know that you will read the story in the two main characters’ P.O.V.’s(Point of views).

The previous book left us with a cliffhanger phone call that Finn received from his CO in the Marines.  The story left us wondering what would happen? Was it a phone call about a possible deployment? Did Carrie’s father, a U.S. Senator, find out about the new blossoming romance between Carrie and Finn? The cliffhanger wasn’t a bad one since the story continued a few months later with the sequel novel.  We got the answer. And boy, did we get the answer.  Emotions were high, both good and bad.  At times you were left wondering if Carrie and Finn could handle the outcome of that phone call and everything else that occurred from that change of events.

Speaking from experience, relationships are tested constantly but when something is ready to give a relationship the ultimate test of possibly living apart for any amount of time, emotions run it’s ‘rocky road’ course.  Carrie get’s a visit from her parents  during a time when all she wants to do is spend every moment she can with Finn.  While Finn prepares to get answers for the questions of his possible future,  he is left trying to keep his secret relationship with Carrie low key from his boss and her father, Senator Wallington.  Find out what happens and get your answers to the questions you were left with at the end of ‘Out Of Line’.  Most will be answered in ‘Out Of Time’ but at the end of the story, you are left wanting to see what will become of the strong loving relationship between Carrie and Finn. I’m looking forward to the prequel  to this series titled ‘Out Of Mind.’

How I imagined Finn and Carrie while reading ‘OUT OF TIME’!

1 collage Carrie Finn 1



Carrie Wallington’s thoughts:  I had a hot, surfing, tattooed, bike-riding Marine for a boyfriend.  Even better?  He loved me as much as I loved him.  We were invincible.  As long as we had each other.

Finn Coram’s thoughts:  She always dived in to new things with wide-open arms, never showing a hint of fear.  Hell, she’d even done that with me.  Just kind of opened up and accepted me for what I was.  That never ceased to amaze me.

Finn Coram’s thoughts:  She was supposed to be with a trust fund baby.  One who had money and wealth and recognition.  Me?  I so wasn’t that guy.  I never would be.

Finn to Carrie:  “I’ve never been scared of anything before.  Guns.  Surfing.  War.  But now I have the biggest fear of all – losing you.”

Carrie Wallington’s thoughts:  …how many times have you looked at a couple and known they were completely in love just from the way they looked at one another?  If ever a girl looked at a guy that way, it had to be Finn and me.

Finn and Carrie: “I missed you.  So I may or may not have been sniffing your sweater right before you came.”-Finn.
“That’s way too cute.”-Carrie.
“Are you sure? It might just be creepy.”-Finn.
“I’m positive as a proton that it’s cute and not even the slightest bit creepy.”-Carrie.
“I missed hearing that phrase…”-Finn. 🙂

Finn and Carrie:  “I have a new favorite word now.“-Finn.
“Oh?  And what might that be?”-Carrie.

BOOK: Cover Reveal! Out Of Time by Author Jen McLaughlin (


COVER REVEAL and TEASER! Featured Novel and Author: “Blindness” by Author Ginger Scott.

Updated with a Teaser to “Blindness”: Jan.12th, 2014

★Here is the COVER REVEAL
for the Upcoming Novel Release
by Ginger Scott titled: BLINDNESS★

Blindness by Ginger Scott★Blindness will be available Feb.2014. BooksMoviesFandoms will activate the cover above for you to click on it when it’s available to order.★

Our featured author is Ginger Scott.
Her upcoming novel is titled: BLINDNESS.

The synopsis for “BLINDNESS”:

It takes a while to know who you really are. And when you lose your way, sometimes it’s hard to find it again.

Charlie Hudson was on the verge of figuring that out when her dad—the only parent and friend she ever had—died suddenly. She was barely 18, and she was alone. So she went for easy—playing life safe, running away from a home that harbored nothing but bad memories and challenges and loving a man who would take her away from it all forever.

It’s funny how chance takes over when you need it most. And that’s exactly what brought Cody Carmichael into her life. A former motocross super star, Cody was now happy to be living the blue collar life, spending his days finishing up school and his nights under the hood of some classic car, just trying to keep everything his father taught him alive. Cody and Charlie were living parallel lives, until they finally collided. And the moment he smiled at her, Charlie knew he was the one who would change everything. But was she willing to take the risk?

Cody saw through it all. He saw her—all of her. But would letting him in be too much to take? And if Charlie let herself love him—really love him—could he love her back?

Novel TEASER from “BLINDNESS” by Author Ginger Scott:

Cody is still next to me, his grip on my hand once again strong, but his body is stiff. I’m rewinding mentally, realizing just how far I went. Shit! I said way too much! I don’t even know what I’m doing here. This all suddenly feels way too intimate—wrong. My pulse is speeding up the more I think about what Trevor would think if he saw me, saw this—saw us!

I slide the pillow from my chest to the side and work my fingers until they’re out of Cody’s grip. He remains next to me, but isn’t moving. I’m pretty sure I just made him feel unwelcome in his own bed, the awkwardness creeping in now and almost choking me. I have to leave, leave this bed and then leave this room. I’ll be calm until I shut his door, and then I’m running.

Yes, that’s it. I’ll run.

“Oh God, I’m sorry. I just unloaded, like, way too much on you. I’m…I’m just going to go,” I say, pushing myself up to sit at the side of the bed and slip on my shoes. The light is dim, but I can tell that Cody’s eyes have shifted to me. He’s still not moving or speaking, and I don’t really want him to. I just want to get out of his room without him saying a word.

“Thank you, truly,” I say as I stand and look once more at the ceiling. “The stars? They’re amazing,” my voice wavers, and I turn and walk to his door. I’m gripping the handle, willing myself to keep it together for just a few more seconds until I’m out of his view, when I feel his body behind me and see his hand flat against the door.

His breath against my neck raises every hair on my body. I’m looking intently at his fingers splayed out on the wood paneling of the door in front of me, my hands still gripping the door handle. Beyond this door, my life continues on one path—a path I know. A path I love. But I’m stalled, considering what happens if I stay in this room. I’m paralyzed. Fear. Indecision.

“Cody, I…” I start, but don’t know how to finish.

“Just stay,” he says, his voice barely audible, and the air released from his words sends more chills around my neck and down my entire body.

“Just…” I hear him swallow, and even though I can’t see him, I know he’s struggling. I keep my eyes forward and watch his fingers curl into a fist on the door, clinching tightly. “I won’t…I wouldn’t make you uncomfortable. I’m not asking you to do anything. Please…please just stay,” his head falling flat against the back of mine as he speaks. I can feel him breathe me in, and I feel like I’m racing down a hill, lightheaded from the conflict brewing inside.

“Okay,” I whisper, not even aware that it was me speaking. I’m on autopilot, turning away from the path I know and recognize on the other side of the door, but desperately worried that it won’t be there when I finally leave this room.

Cody’s hand slides from the door to my shoulder, and I shiver as he traces the back of his fingers down the length of my arm until he finds my hand once again. He pulls me to him, forcing me to turn into his body. I keep my eyes focused on the words on his shirt, reading the dates and towns to myself. Some tour shirt—a concert, perhaps? Or maybe a race? I’m trying to keep my mind busy with this pointless task when Cody reaches for my chin and pulls my face to look at his.

His eyes are serious. Even in the darkness of his room, I can see the flecks of blue—I’m that close. I watch them as they move to the side of my face to follow his hand as he pushes my hair away from my face slowly, tucking it behind my ear but leaving it there, his fingers tangled deep within my hair. He tilts his head to the side, and I think for a moment that he’s about to kiss me. I lick my lips on instinct, and I feel him tense up from it.

His hand forces me forward into him and I close my eyes, almost believing that if I don’t see it coming I won’t be able to stop it. I feel his chest press to mine next, then his hand wraps deeper into my hair so he’s cradling the back of my head. His other hand slides up my side to the middle of my back, and his chin comes down above my head so I’m completely tucked within his embrace. I’m sheltered, and it’s the first time I’ve ever felt my heart actually stop from being in someone’s arms.

Giving in, I bring my hands up Cody’s back so I’m hugging him tightly to me, my fingers gripping at his torn T-shirt. I slide my face flat against him and let out everything I’ve been holding in—it feels like for years.

Note from MG Blogger of BooksMoviesFandoms:  Once I’ve read this wonderful new Novel, I’ll post a review for it! So stay tuned… looking forward to this great new story with a whole new world of characters from one of my favorite authors.

Kiss me At Midnight by Diane Alberts


Synopsis for ‘Kiss Me At Midnight’:

Her New Year’s resolution was seduction.

Doctor Ashley Hanes has one mission and one mission only—end her annoyingly long dry streak and ring in the New Year with a bang. Literally. When her long lost and oh-so-sexy ex-best friend, Ethan Pierce, shows up as if he hadn’t broken her heart all those years ago, suddenly she doesn’t want to bring home just any man. She wants Ethan.

What should have been one night of blow-your-mind make-up sex quickly turns into another. And another. Before long, Ashley thinks maybe she and Ethan should reunite for good. If only the elusive bachelor will stop running from his tortured past and trust a future in Ashley’s arms.


My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ of the Novel ‘Kiss Me At Midnight’:

It’s New Year’s Eve and you find yourself back in your hometown, where you remember both good and not so-good memories. Regardless, you’re back and you aren’t the same as you were when you first left this place.  You’re single and looking for a one-night-stand to have fun with while ringing in the new year. There was someone in this town who use to be your best friend but during high school, that someone became a stranger to you. Even so, you came out tonight with the small chance of running into this ex-BFF at the small local bar. Why? What for? You have no clue but you’re here. This is what Dr. Ashley Hanes is asking herself while she searches for her next no-strings-attached hook-up to ring in the new year with. All the while her ex-best friend Ethan Pierce is searching for his own one-night hook up while he visits the old hometown that he loathes.  As the reader I’m happy to let you know that you do get two P.O.V.’s(point of views) in this story. You’ll follow the story in both main characters’ Ethan Pierce and Ashley Hanes.

Doctor Ashley Hanes moves back to her hometown after taking a position at the local hospital.  This town holds a history to her but her fondest and hardest memory is that of her former best friend, Ethan Pierce.  Ashley has grown from an average girl to a beautiful, confident and successful woman.  She moves back home to care for her mother after her father’s passing.  She has made a habit of satisfying her needs with one-night hook ups.  One New Year’s Eve she had no idea her life would take her back in time while changing her life in ways she never expected.

Former high-school geek, Ethan Pierce was once a scrawny guy, who use to wear over sized glasses, stuttered and was picked on in high-school.  Ashley Hanes was his best friend regardless of how anyone else treated him and he had a huge crush on her.  After he discovered something in high school, he stopped being her friend and ignored her from then on.  Ethan resented their hometown because of the horrible memories of being picked-on.  Now as an adult, Ethan is no longer that scrawny, geeky guy, he is now a successful IT guy, attractive, sexy and lives far away in California. On New Year’s Eve, he heads out while visiting his hometown in hopes of finding a sexy lady interested in a fun one-night stand. He didn’t count on her being in town or being there of all places.

This is a hot and fun story about a long-lost friendship that seems to have hopes for more when the two former-high school friends meet again nine years later as confident, sexy and successful adults.  Are the feelings between Ethan and Ashley just the thrill of their past unrequited feelings or is this something with potential for a future? Can Ashley truly get over the fact that Ethan hurt her long ago when he abruptly stopped being her friend?  And can Ethan finally admit his old feelings were more than a crush or will his dislike for this town send him running away again?  This novella is a fun and steamy read. Check it out to see what happens between the two long lost best friends.


This review was based on an ARC copy received for an honest review.  The Novella will be available: Dec.30th, 2013.

Ashley Hane’s thoughts on Ethan Pierce:  Ethan Pierce. He’d been her best friend up until the New Year’s Eve of senior year when he’d stopped talking to her.  She hadn’t seen him since graduation…

Ethan Pierce’s thoughts:  Every time he came back home, he felt as if he took a step into a fucking time capsule, back to a time he never wanted to relive. A time when he’d been a stuttering, scrawny, shy, and insecure kid. But that was then. This was now.

Ethan Pierce’s thoughts:  The second he touched her, he knew. Before he saw her face, he knew. Only one woman set him afire like that, and her name was Ashley.

Ethan to Ashley:  “I’ve wanted to have you since I was nothing more than a stuttering kid, but now? I need you. So my only question is…are you in, or are you out?”

Ethan Pierce’s thoughts:  …beneath the flirtatious smiled she gave him, she was still the sweet, gorgeous, caring girl he’d once loved with all his teenaged heart.

Ashley Hane’s thoughts:  Every time he pushed her away, he seemed to follow up by pulling her a little closer, too. It made her wonder if he was fighting an internal battle.

Ashley Hane’s thoughts:  She smiled but didn’t feel it. He didn’t need to know how much it hurt her to let him go. To watch him walk away again. At least this time she would get a goodbye, though.

Ashley to Ethan:  “When you walk away from me in the morning—and don’t worry, I won’t try to stop you—I’ll miss you. I just thought you should know.”

Ethan to his brother Alex:  “I almost want to stay. Move back here and live in this godforsaken town, just so I can see her. Be with her.  I almost want to stop running.”

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00008]


Synopsis for ‘Scarred Love’ via Goodreads:

Darcie Claiborne spent several years of her young life living with a monster, always fearing what he would do next. Clasping onto her last ounce of hope, Darcie releases a scream. It’s her final attempt to live; to survive the villain of her reality. Sweeping her up in his arms, Darcie’s knight in shining armor rescues her from the hell she’s been living; from the stepfather she’s feared for all those years.

Reggie Evans has been forced to grow up before he’s ready when his mother dies of an overdose, leaving him responsible to raise his younger brothers. One fateful night, Reggie jogs by an old, run down house and discovers a young girl clinging to life as she screams for help.

Three years later, Darcie is healing and always protected by the man who saved her, but now she’s fighting with something she isn’t prepared to face. The growing love for the man who saved her life three years ago, the same man who’s nine years older. All the while, Reggie fights to protect Darcie from the demons of her past and new ones of her present.


My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ of the Novel ‘Scarred Love’:

Where do I begin with the review for ‘Scarred Love’?  The story was a great story, very dark and yet captivating in it’s own way.  You can’t help but sympathize for ‘Margaret’ Darcie Claiborne-Stein in the story as the main character who is both heroine and victim, depending what chapter you are reading.  The main character Darcie aka Margaret is raised by her mother, who marries a very wealthy man who adores her but truly mistreats her daughter, Darcie ‘Margaret’ in horrid ways.  Darcie seems like a very silent child, sheltering her feelings because of the evil ways her step-father punishes her even when she’s done nothing wrong.  This story will pull you in and makes you hope to see a happy ending for the girl who never knew love for most her life. You will get two P.O.V.’s(Point of views) in this story from both Darcie ‘Margaret’ Claiborne and the main male character, Reggie Evans.

The main female character is seventeen year old Darcie Claiborne, who’s first name  is ‘Margaret’, which she hates for a few main reasons and never uses anymore.  She’s a beautiful young teenager who’s scarred both inside and out because of the years of torment she suffered under the hands of her step-father, Robert Stein.  She is thin, with dark hair and fights a lot to channel the anger she’s carried for so long.  She was rescued from her nightmare life by a stranger who was jogging by one day and since that day, she’s become a part of his unusual but loving and protective family.

Reggie Evans rescued Darcie and took her under his wing and into his home after he found her.  He is the guardian and older brother to twins Jake and Jeremy Evans and Drake Evans, who all live together.  Darcie has become a part of their family. Each character has their own personality which helps to keep the story entertaining.  The new family that Darcie lives with has their own secrets and past that may be hard to keep a lid on forever.  Reggie is strong, tall and fit with blondish hair and a former MMA fighter who retired early to raise his brothers.  He’s a definite heroine in the story because he gives up so much for his family.

In every story where there are heroines, you will also find villains. Robert Stein is the true epitome of an evil villain.  How he treated a young child like ‘Margaret’ Darcie through the years makes you loathe his disgusting existence.  No matter how much negative and terrible things come Darcie’s way, she seems like such a strong character and you know her heart is big because she will risk anything for those she cares for.  Reggie is the same way.  He gives up so much and takes chances to protect and help those he loves in his life.  This truly is a great story with a lot of dark moments but there are also many triumphant moments that make it all better.  I do recommend this story and I will definitely continue with this series.

One of Darcie song choices – “Creep”:

A song that fits Darcie and Reggie:



Darcie Claiborne’s thoughts:  Once he returns, I will no longer be the fourteen-year-old girl he blames for her death, but a fourteen-year old replacement for his dead wife.

Darcie Claiborne and Reggie Evans:
“Are you… my knight in shining armor?”-Darcie.
“Always.  You’re safe now.”-Reggie.
For the first time in my fourteen years of life, I feel what I’ve craved all along…hope.

Darcie Claiborne’s thoughts:  There is nothing I wouldn’t do for these guys, and even though we are not related by blood, they’re my family.

Reggie Evan’s thoughts:  …I did the only thing I could to save her, save my family.  I made a deal with the devil and it’s been costing me ever since.

Darcie Claiborne’s thoughts on new friend Presley:  We all look at Presley for her toast and she says,”To new beginnings, new friendships and survival.”  Momentarily, I wonder what she means by survival.  This girl is deeper than expected and may have a past like the rest of us…

Presley Quinn to Darcie Claiborne:  “When he glances up and smiles at you, it’s different from the smiles he gives her.” Presley motions to Natasha.  “It’s like he’s saving his true smiles for only you.”

Darcie Claiborne’s thoughts:  I want him.  I want him so bad it’s excruciating.  I want him in all the ways a woman can have a man.  The feeling is torturous.

Darcie Claiborne’s thoughts:  I know I will never love anyone as much as I do Reggie.  He is and will always be my salvation;  the face of peace, happiness and survival.  I will love him forever… always.

Reggie Evan’s thoughts:  She is the one who I will do anything for, regardless of what it is.  She could lie, steal or cheat and it wouldn’t matter.  I would save her.

Reggie Evan’s thoughts:  I’m pissed I’ve acted like a jerk to her over the last month.  All because I love her, I tried to push her away, but the only thing I’ve done is handed her over to a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Darcie Claiborne’s thoughts:  From this moment on, when I look at my body, I won’t be reminded of the pain I suffered, I will be reminded of the trauma I have survived.

Fighting For Flight by J.B. Salsbury


Synopsis for ‘Fighting For Flight’ via Goodreads:

What happens when in order to win, you’re forced to lose?
The only daughter of an infamous Las Vegas pimp, Raven Morretti grew up an outsider. Liberated from the neglectful home of her prostitute mother, she finds solace as a mechanic.

With few friends, she’s content with the simple life. Flying under the radar is all she knows, and more than she expects.

Until she catches the eye of local celebrity, UFL playboy Jonah Slade.
Weeks away from his title fight, Jonah is determined to stay focused on everything he’s trained so hard to achieve. Undefeated in the octagon, he’s at the height of his career. But resisting Raven’s effortless allure and uncomplicated nature is a fight he can’t win.

Jonah trades in his bad-boy reputation and puts his heart on the line. But when her father contacts her, setting in motion the ugly truth of her destiny, Jonah must choose. In a high-stakes gamble where love and freedom hang in the balance, a war is waged where the price of losing is a fate worse than death.
Will the hotheaded Jonah be able to restrain his inner fighter to save the woman he loves?

Or will Raven be forced into a life she’s been desperate to avoid?



My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ of the Novel ‘Fighting For Flight’:

In life everyone is faced with choices and the consequences of the bad choices can brand us for life, and we can feel the effects of the bad choices others make for us.  In ‘Fighting For Flight’, a young woman who became a prostitute under the deceitful direction of a well-known pimp in Las Vegas named Dominick Morretti, becomes pregnant with his child.  He allows her to give birth only under an evil and manipulative agreement that one day, when this child grows up, she too will have to live that lifestyle and follow in her mother’s footsteps.  In this story you get to read the story from two P.O.V.’s (Point of views) which are of the two main characters: Raven Morretti and Jonah “The Assassin” Slade.

Raven Morretti is the twenty-year old daughter of a pimp and a prostitute who lives in Las Vegas.  She was raised by her prostitute/escort mother who never showed her love, affection or  warmth through out her life growing up.  Her pimp father, Dominick Morretti, was never really around because he had no interest in her, not yet anyway.  Raven is described as having a nice body with curves in the right places, jet-black hair that flowed down her back, aquamarine colored-eyes and the trail of black birds tattooed down her back.  Raven has lived a simple and modest life as a mechanic under a boss named ‘Guy’ who has treated her like she was his own daughter.  One day a new customer walks in needing work down on an older car he owns.  Only thing is he isn’t a regular guy, he’s the very well-known UFL Heavyweight fighter Jonah “The Assassin” Slade.

Now let’s talk about Jonah, shall we? He’s described as a true Alpha-male with the professionally-trained fighting skills to back it up.  He is tall, muscular build, with dark colored short hair and eyes, some tattoos and a strong but handsome face.  He has never committed to a woman but he’s never had a problem getting female groupies who hook-up with him for a mixture of his good looks, money or local-celebrity status.  Things chance for “The Assassin” when he goes to a local mechanic shop to see about getting his classic car worked on.  That’s when he meets a surprisingly beautiful and hot mechanic named Raven.

As their worlds collide and their professional relationship seems to have potential to blossom into something more,  Raven has a haunting history that threatens to completely destroy her present and future life forever.  Raven comes across as a sweet and innocent young woman despite who her parents are and what they do.  This makes Jonah feel a little more protective of her as their feelings grow for each other in the story.  Once certain truths come to light, Raven and Jonah are faced with decisions that could ruin their lives or simply destroy what they’ve both worked hard to become.

Yes, I do recommend this story because it’s not solely about the blossoming relationship between Jonah and Raven but it also keeps you entertained with the guessing game of who are the players that the pimp Dominic has in play inside their lives unbeknownst to them both.  You also meet many supporting characters that are far beyond one dimensional characters such as Blake, Guy and Eve a little.  Dominick is definitely the villain and he is truly someone you will loathe for wanting to use Raven for his sick and twisted controlling-game.  Check it out and be ready for the rest of this series as it continues…

How I imagined Jonah and Raven while reading ‘Fighting For Flight’ 🙂

Jonah Slade and Raven Morretti



Milena’s thoughts(Raven’s mother):  No, I can’t hold her.  If I do, I’ll never let her go.

Jonah “The Assassin” Slade’s thoughtsWomen in the town are overly aware of themselves.  I know there are exceptions.  But what are the chances that an exception who looks like a rule is about to push through my walls?

Jonah “The Assassin” Slade’s thoughts:  There is no working this girl out of my system.  From the moment she walked out of Guy’s Garage, she burrowed in deep.  This whole time I’ve been kicking and fighting against her pull.  What if I just let it go?

Jonah “The Assassin” Slade’s thoughts:  …face my fears and take a shot at a relationship or let her go.  She’ll go on living her life until someone worthy of her love comes along.  Oh, hell no!

Raven Morretti’s thoughts:  I’ve been running in the opposite direction as my mom’s life since I knew she was a prostitute.  I’m a mechanic and a virgin.  Can’t get more opposite than that.

Raven and Blake(Jonah’s friend):
“Jonah’s free to date, er, um, be with whoever he wants.”-Raven.
“Jonah’s a lot of things. But from what I’ve seen tonight, he’s not free-at least, not anymore.”-Blake.

Jonah and Raven:
“Promise me you’ll stay away from Dominick Morretti.”-Jonah.
“That, I can promise.”-Raven.

Jonah “The Assassin” Slade’s thoughts:   To think that I could experience this all-consuming lust, as well as the soul-shackling love that I would die to keep, is life changing.  This tiny girl who works on cars, laughs at stupid jokes, and blushes at the slightest flirtation is mine.

Raven Morretti’s thoughts:  I want him, but more than that, I want him to be happy-to have a life with a woman who can love him the way he deserves to be loved: a woman free from the ugliness of my reality.

Raven Morretti’s thoughts:  First, Jonah loves me.  And, second, I don’t know what the future will bring, but whatever happens, I won’t be facing it alone.

Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have cast Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot in the iconic role and the Wonder Woman character will be a part of the film that will see Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck square off as Superman and Batman.

We truly hope that this is all gearing-up toward a long-awaited Justice League film which would be based on the DC Comics characters.

Words from Zack Snyder himself:  “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
