Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street by CJ Hudson #blogtour #bookreview #romance #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @MKWebsiteandSEO @CJHudson1978

Publisher: Mindstir Media

His abusive family tore him away from her. Would destiny be enough to bring
him back?

At ten years old, Chris didn’t have good looks, a caring family, or a
bright future. But what he did have for three years was the love of
Danielle, his beautiful neighbor on Fairhaven Street who showed him a
glimpse of a life he desperately wanted.

To escape his abusive father, Chris was forced to move out of state with
his mother to the icy hills of Michigan. All he could leave Danielle with
was half of a heart-shaped pendant and a promise that he would one day
return for her. To have any chance of getting her back, he had to end over
one hundred years of abuse in his family, something his family claimed he
was destined to carry on. All he had to keep him going was his half of the
pendant, which tarnished over the years from his refusal to take it
off.

 

Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street is a touching memoir from author C.J.
Hudson of his eight-year journey of preparation to return to the love of his
life. Written to his twin sons, his story is a testament to the power of
devotion and proof that the life you’ve always wanted is possible if you
never give up.

Review

This was actually a great book.
CJ Hudson does a great job of bringing his story to life in a way that we forget it’s based on something real.
Great characters and a great setting and a sense of determination and second chances.
A good book and journey you will get lost in.

About the Author

When first looking at C.J. Hudson, the last thing one would expect him to
be is a multi-award-winning romance author, but that is exactly what the
bald-headed, barrel-chested disabled navy veteran is. His debut memoir
“Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street” was written in homage to his
twin five-year old sons, telling of his eight-year journey where he ended
100 years of abuse in their family in the name of returning to the first
woman he ever loved. Destiny was written entirely on an iPhone over four
years, being re-written eight times, undergoing six full editing cycles and
being rejected 138 times before landing at Mindstir Media. Destiny quickly
became critically acclaimed and won over seven awards. C.J. resides in
Pflugerville, Texas and enjoys a life spent with his wife and sons, all
while living the very motto he plans on passing down to them one day:
“the man you are destined to become is the one you choose to be.”

Humans have always feared Caen’s kind.

Survivors of a mysterious virus, Ruĝa Morto, that killed 80% of
Earth’s population two centuries ago, they have endured enslavement as
Neurologically Compromised Individuals, or NiCIes, owned by OnyxCorp. Now,
in 2261, Caen begins a perilous journey to seek the Vagabonders, the
original moon colonists, whom many believe hold the key to freeing his
people.

He knows he is hunted. He expects death at every turn.

But he doesn’t anticipate meeting Dr. Ligeia Obumbwe, a human
biogeneticist desperate to protect her brother Finn, yet another victim of
the endemic virus. When OnyxCorp promises to keep Finn safe in exchange for
her work in their lunar lab, she accepts despite her increasing unease
regarding the Corporation’s motives.

Ligeia and Caen become unlikely partners in a dangerous quest to reach the
Vine, the space elevator that is the first step in their journey to the
moon.

What they find along the way could help them bring OnyxCorp to its
knees…or destroy everything they love.

book. It is the culmination of twenty years of communication strategies and

same way after reading Speak No Evil – In Search of our Self-esteem,

Review

Speak No Evil is an impressive book. I was blown away by how much I took away from it.
Plateroti uses some great wit and humor to cut the seriousness of the topics.

agency.” Norma remembers those words that now prove to be untrue as she
rejoins Atropos-a covert government organization-after so many bloodless
years. She has just carried out her first mission back, suspiciously without
her team. Something tells her things are not what they seem and betrayal is
imminent.

decommissioned, and things need to change. Norma is beginning to speculate
that it isn’t her skill set that the agency wants, Instead, accepting her
back was their way of gaining access to a more lethal successor.

escape the clandestine smoky mirrors of Washington DC and see clearly before
it’s too late.

 

Reviews

“‘The Atropos Maker’ is a fast-paced and expertly plotted
two-fisted political thriller focusing on corrupt international and domestic
organizations, secret weapons, and conspiracies,” wrote IndieReader in
their 4.8-star review.

 

“Stylishly written,” wrote Joe Kilgore – The US Review of Books.
“This is an engaging read that pushes the envelope of the thriller
genre. Author Lujan has chosen to steep her tale in an intensely
introspective tone. Burrowing deeply within the psyche and soul of her
protagonist, she paints a harrowing picture of how one individual musters up
the fortitude to go from victim to survivor to ruler of her own
fate—but not without the toll the harshest of life’s injuries
often inflict.

 

“The suspense in the book is irresistible,” wrote Pacific Book
Review in their Starred Review. “The author knows how to entice
readers by introducing subplots which increase one’s focus to finish
the book . . . ‘The Atropos Maker’ is a great read for those who
fancy thrillers, drama, conspiracy stories, military fiction and a great
plot.”

Did someone say dance like no one is watching? Guess that’s the only
way Tyler CAN dance now. Slip into the pages of the fun and feisty second
book in the Rocky Mountain Romances series.

 

Tyler Carter has everything she dreams of—she’s the starring
ballerina in a Cirque-du-Soleil type show, a splashy Las Vegas lifestyle,
and there’s nothing tying her down. Until she injures her knee, that
is.

Tyler flees to her family in the little mountain town of Independence
Junction, Colorado, and pretends she’ll get better, until forced to realize
the truth. And forced to confront her past when she smacks right into
Patrick West, the architect restoring the historic Wilkinson house.

Their attraction quickly rekindles because of a one-night tryst they had
the summer before—one neither of them wants to admit to!

But something else gets rekindled. A stalker sets their sights on Tyler and
leaves shocking clues indicating they know exactly who Tyler is, and that
they want her dead. Will Patrick, Tyler’s brother, and a retired
police dog be able to keep Tyler safe?

The fascinating and quirky citizens of Independence Junction come back in
Book 2 of The Rocky Mountain Romances series to show how small-town
relationships can bring out the best and worst in people.

 

Heart-warming with a splash of Vegas glamour, Book 2 successfully combines
a new-and-old mix of family and townsfolk in a pressure-cooker plot that
never lets up on chuckles, suspense, and romance.

Review

From the witty dialogue, to the fast-paced plot, I was hooked from beginning to end.
Plenty of emotions and deep romance without the extra. I loved the setting and the descriptive way the author wrote to completely consume our minds while reading.
Another beautifully done romance.

‘Are these my thoughts or yours?’ I asked.

‘It doesn’t matter,’ said the Sun.  ‘You are
me and I am you….’

The Book of the Sun is a record of the conversations between the author and
the Sun.  It concerns the structure of the living universe, why it is
so difficult here, and why we should all begin to realize that we are all
one, and yet diverse at the same time.  It answers many questions that
have concerned minds throughout the millennia.  Why are we here?
Why is there suffering?  What is the future for us?  These
questions and many more are answered with many surprises for the
reader.

This is a god- the Sun, speaking to us through this book – who has
contacted us before in Ancient Egypt, the Americas and many other
places.  But the message now is that there is no separation, so the Sun
is very concerned that we should not make a religion out of this
contact.  Religions are based on hierarchies, rules and judgments, and
the Sun’s message is not only that we are one but that love and light
is the only reality, with a spicing of laughter.

 

Review

This book is just the most beautiful treat to yourself! The illustrations are so beautiful and thought provoking and I will be sure to pick this up time and time again.

mother and baby’s relationship), before taking early retirement to
look after her elderly mother. Jenny now lives with her husband, mother, and
three dogs in the Cotswolds and writes nonfiction.
