Ms. Grey book blitz

Good morning everyone! I hope you are ready for a new book by S.R. Grey. 

Ms. Grey resides in Pennsylvania. She has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, as well as an MBA. Her background is in business, but her true passion lies in writing. When not writing, Ms. Grey can be found reading, traveling, running, or cheering for her hometown sports teams.

Just Let Me Love You EXCERPTS:



Scrubbing his hand down his face, he says, “My heart belongs to you, Kay…all of it.” He sighs. “But I don’t know if that’s enough.”
“What do you mean?”
“My heart is all cut up, baby girl. Part of my heart died when my father died. And part of it is wrecked from my past.”
My own heart aches at hearing his words. I can feel his pain.
“My heart’s all parceled up, too,” I remind him.
He looks over at me, sadness in his blues. “There’s still more than enough for me,” he whispers.
I place my hand on his chest, right where his heart is. “There’s more than enough in here”—I tap his chest—“for me, too.”  



The Las Vegas I know oh-so-well, however, sure isn’t something I’d ever show Kay. She knows my past, most of it, but there’s no need to revisit the pit stops I traveled along the way. If we did, my Vegas tour would be filled with dark alleys, dark apartments, and the darkest of nights. Nights shaded in tones of addiction, sorrow, and despair.
Would I show beautiful, gentle Kay where I used to score coke, coke that would leave my head feeling like it was exploding? Or would I spin her by the old apartment and show her where Will and I spent many a night alone while Mom was off gambling. Hell, I could take her to the convenience store around the corner from that apartment. I could point out the aisle where I once stole a can of Spam. That can of mystery meat provided a makeshift holiday dinner one year when Mom forgot to come home on Christmas Eve.
Would I show Kay that shit? Short answer: No.



I touch his lips, mouthing the word, “Soft.”
He smiles.
I laugh. 
Lowering my hand, I grasp his solid bicep. “Hard,” I nod and raise my eyebrows. “Actually very hard,” I add. “Impressive.”
This time, Chase laughs.  But he quiets when I skim my hand across his chest and stop at his heart. “Soft” I whisper, “so very soft.”
Chase grabs up my hand. “Kay…”
His eyes on mine say everything he does—or cannot—say.
“Go,” I tell him, turning away. “Go, before I try and stop you.”
I hear him sigh.
I hear him close the door.
And then he’s gone.
The outcome of this night is now in fate’s hands.   



Sending Kay back to Harmony Creek turns out to be one of the hardest things I have to do. She’s become such a part of my life. It’s like when Kay breathes, I breathe.
Before my love boards the plane, she wraps her little arms around me best as she can.
In a choked-up voice, she says, “Do you realize this will be the first time we’ll be apart since we met?”
Surely that can’t be right.
“Wait,” I say. “We spent our nights apart in the early days. Remember, we didn’t sleep in the same bed until after we were together for almost a month.”
The first might spent together was when Kay showed up on my doorstep, frightened and hurt from the junkie that had accosted her in her old apartment parking lot.
With her cheek pressed firmly to my chest, she murmurs, “Still, Chase, we’re together every day. Even when I was mad at you over the incident with Missy…”
She trails off, and I murmur, “Ah, yes, the incident with Missy.”
Kay was pissed when she learned I had an encounter, of the sexual variety, with her friend. Although, in my defense, it happened before I met Kay. And she wasn’t so much mad over the event, she was pissed I’d never told her.
But that was then, and this is now.

No one ever said a lasting love would be easy. 

When Chase and Kay hit the streets of Las Vegas, the goal is simple—rescue Will, Chase’s brother, from making the biggest mistake of his young life. But keeping Will out of trouble turns out not to be the only obstacle in Chase and Kay’s path. Finding himself back in the city that broke him, Chase’s heartbreaking past threatens to derail all the progress he’s made. 

However, Chase is determined not to let that happen. 

While striving to help Will before he implodes, Chase seeks to come to terms with the things that almost destroyed him. He soon discovers that the answers to the most complicated questions sometimes lie in one’s own heart. You just have to be willing to dig deep enough to find them. 

Can Chase succeed in doing that?

A Monday pick me up

Ok,  today is blue Monday. Something about this Monday makes everyone blue, it has to something to do with people getting their credit card bills from Christmas and all that stuff. So why not save some money and make a simple hot fudge cake? Sounds good doesn't it? Well let's see how simple it is. 

This is what theirs looks like.... any bet's on what mine will look like?

This is the link for the recipe


1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ½ cup milk ( I used Almond Fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1¾ cups hot water


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease 9x9 inch pan. 

  • In a large bowl, mix together all purpose flour, sugar, salt, baking soda. Add milk, butter and mix until well combined and pour into the pan. Sprinkle sugar on top of the batter, then add the hot water.

  1. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until firm or the sauce bubbles.
  2. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Ok I am now waiting for this to cook, but I will admit I licked the bowl and OMG I don't know if I am willing to share the finshed product.

********BREAKING NEWS*********

 Good morning everyone!  Well it's been cold and snowy out, so what better way to warm you up than some baking? I wanted to try the new quick breads.
 These are said to be easy and no one can mess it up. (They don't know me to well do they?)
 So the cinnamon swirl one comes with two packets inside, both are clearish so make sure you only use the one that looks like flour first.  I use a wisk to sift it before I add the wet stuff.

Butter a loaf pan and line parchment paper. Then pre-heat the oven to 350° f
 Add 3/4 cups of water
3 tablespoons of oil
2 eggs

 So you scoop some of the batter into the loaf pan I did about half. Then you sprinkle around half of the cinnamon mixture on the middle. Then add the rest of the batter and top it of with the cinnamon mixture.
I poked a few holes down to swirl it a bit more.

Cook for 45 to 55 minutes. Let it stand for 20 minutes.  Yours should look like this.
These are amazing and quick easy breads to make. They taste really good.

Gizmo report:
 Hi everyone, happy New Year, I hope you had a great holiday season. I hope everyone is staying warm.
Mom Elizabeth and Dad Lorne brought home something I wasn't to happy with.
This is Willow she is some breed of dog known as a catz.
Now I haven't had much experience with catz and I don't like many of them. She has pointed ears and a tail that waps me in the face. Do you want to know the strangest thing? She has these sharp things on the end of her paws that she can swipe you with. There was a few swipes at first I must say.
But now over a month later everyone is getting along. I have even snuggled with her( but shhh don't tell anyone)
So I guess we can keep this latest addition to the house.

I'm E.J Babcock I hope you enjoyed my blog. I hope you have a wonderful day/night.
