Book Blitz: My Heart Is Yours by Amanda Leigh


Hey guys!

Welcome to another book blitz. There's a giveaway at the end.


About the Book:
Title: My Heart Is Yours
Author: Amanda Leigh
Publication Date: May 18, 2015
Pages: 169

Book Description:
Samantha Marie Ramsden has three brothers. Craig, John and Matt. When tragedy strikes their family, Craig takes on the task of becoming his siblings legal guardian. It’s hard enough being someone’s guardian, but when you’ve only recently entered adulthood yourself it’s almost impossible to know where to draw the line between sibling and ‘parent’.



This is made even harder on him when Sam starts to get close to a long time friend, Jason. It looks like their friendship could turn into something more. An idea that Craig has never been too happy with. Spanning six years, My Heart is Yours explores family, friendship, love and much more. As well as asking the question: Would you defy family for love?


Excerpt:
Hey! Johns voice echoed through the house. Damn it! Sam grinned to herself; John did the same thing every time he got home from work. Hed swing open the door, scream Hey! then stub his toe on the dark brown wooden coffee table and curse under his breathe. Hed done the same thing every weekend since Sam was fourteen. Thats when he got his part time job at the deli about four blocks away from their house. He kept half of his pay; the other half went to paying the bills.
What are you doin? Matt asked as he walked into their small kitchen/dining room.
Craig and I are making dinner. Which means you and John get to do the dishes.
Matts face fell into a frown, doing dishes was his least favorite chore. His baby fat hadnt all gone away yet, so his face still had that slightly round shape. Matt was a little more pale than the rest of them. His eyes were sky blue and thoughtful. The eyes of a dreamer. He had light brown hair with dirty blonde highlights; it was a little long. When their mom was still alive she would always beg him to get it cut. (He rarely did).
Hey, baby sis! John said as his slightly tan hand messed up Sams hair. Sam grinned an amused and frustrated grin. Baby sis, thats what John always called her. Even though she constantly reminded him he was only about a year older than her.

Hey guys!

So, I made these petitions and was hoping you guys could sign. :D So here is a little bit about them and the links to sign them. Also they are as a html on the side of this blog. ----->

First petition:
School Uniforms. What child likes to wear uniforms? My friends and I certainly don't. There is no one in the schools that I've been to - and have a uniform - like to wear them. We believe that we all should have the right to dress. What if it is in the wash or drying and you can't go to the store to buy it? What will you do? All you can do is get in trouble. They don't accept excuses. Some schools just give you a warning. However, some schools give you detention for it! Now, who wants that?! You may just wear the wrong shoes by accident or wrong jacket. Well, there's nothing you can do about it. You're doomed! So sign this petition to get rid of the awful uniforms! Link: http://www.change.org/petitions/schools-no-more-uniforms

But now an invading army marches north destroying everything in its path. The dragons believe only together can the invaders be defeated. They need an emissary. 

Womanizer. Drunk. Failure. Soren is many things. A leader isn’t one of them. But, Dex, the dragon that saves him from a cliff, believes different. Thrust into an adventure he never wanted, Soren’s life changes forever when during a battle Dex’s blood mixes with his blood creating a mythical blood bond – forever linking them. 

As the bond strengthens, Soren must decide whether to return to his old life or accept the bond and embrace his role in the battle against the invading army.
