#ad #spon BOOTLER--Find Food and a Company to Deliver it FAST #GoBootler #Food

Friday, October 21, 2016

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Bootler. All opinions are my own.

"What is Bootler?

Bootler is an online aggregation service for delivery food, or a search engine for delivery food. Basically, they work with over 6 different delivery services allowing users to pick a restaurant and compare prices, availability and delivery time saving their users time and money. They are not the delivery company. They only bring together other delivery companies and then redirect you to their website. Basically, for flights… you book the flight through Kayak, but you fly with American Airlines."

Find Food Fast using Bootler--Compare Chicago's food and alcohol delivery all in one place. At the moment this company only operates out of Chicago--but a little bird told me they will be coming to NY hopefully soon. The pic below is of a Chicago Pizza-I prefer NY Pizza! Hey I'm a New Yorker born and bred!! And I really hope they make it to Westchester County, NY. I would certainly use them if they did!!

Now this would be great for me but even better for my Mom who lives alone. She still cooks for herself--but from what she tells me--she really doesn't want to. But a meal delivered to her door--what a blessing that would be. I would no longer have to worry if she was eating or not.

Have you ever had craving for a certain type of food? With me it is usually Mexican--but none of the Mexican restaurants near me deliver. Thus I would have to call the restaurant--then go pick it up. NOT happening. With Bootler this is what you have to do:

How it works:

Search & Pick
Search for whatever you are in the mood to eat. Then, Pick the restaurant you want delivery from.

Here is an example of what you will see when you go to choose a menu. Doc B's Delivery. Did I mention they offer many different cuisines: American, Sandwich, Chinese, Mexican and Pizza.

Build your custom order from the restaurant menu. If you are over 21 and live in Chicago, get alcohol from Saucey!

Compare the different delivery companies' prices. Then, Select the delivery company to order with.

Here is a video you can watch:

"Facts about Bootler:

6 different delivery partners and growing
You can order both food and alcohol from our site. Alcohol comes from a delivery service called ‘Saucey.’
Currently only Chicago based but expanding to NY by the end of the year and more major cities soon after
100,000 visitors per month
2,000 people daily ordering from our service
Launching a mobile app in September"

Book Review-The Dead Game-Susanne Leist

Thursday, October 20, 2016

Now first of all--why did someone (me) get this book when it is so far from books I normally read. Well, I kept seeing it on Twitter and the pictures were mostly all different--enough so that I was kind of curious what it was about. It went on sale and I decided to take a chance.

This is definitely not your usual vampire book--it goes far beyond that and I found myself enthralled with the story line! Yup, you read that correctly--I LOVED it!! The twists and turns and mysterious happenings will keep you reading. Good vs Evil-humans siding with human vampires--magical happenings--you name it--this book has it.

The ending might give you chills and I think this will probably become a series. What a movie this would make!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Book 1 in a series.
Linda moves to a seaside town to live a quiet life. She opens a bookstore and makes new friends. Life is simple--that is until the dead body washes up on shore. Linda is horrified to find that dead bodies and disappearing tourists are common for this small town. As soon as the sun sets, the residents and tourists are stalked by dark shadows. But this is only the beginning.

Linda and her friends receive an unsigned invitation to a party at a deserted house. They are pursued through revolving rooms and dangerous traps, barely escaping with their lives. Two of their own remain trapped in the house. Or so they think.

They must embark on a difficult journey, chased by unnatural creatures, not knowing whom to trust, to uncover the one controlling the game and everyone in town. Who are The Dead? Are they humans or vampires? Or a combination of both? Will there be an end to their evil game? Will Linda and Todd find love? Will a second book be needed?

The Dead Game has begun.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

I'm an avid reader. I love to read all types of books. My first book, The Dead Game has paranormal, suspense and mystery. It brings fantasy and the surreal to the simple murder mystery. It has dead bodies and suspects like a traditional murder mystery. However, it also has humans, vampires, and vampire derivatives. A touch of romance is thrown into the mix. And don't forget the haunted house--we must have one of those.

E-Book GA-2-WW-Stroke of Love-Book Spotlight-Tempting Tristan-Melissa Foster-Ends 11/10

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

I have not read this book or any in this series actually but I do know one thing--all of Melissa Fosters other books were ones I thoroughly enjoyed. You really can't go wrong picking up one of her books. Read below to see if you would enjoy this one or one of the others.

New Release........

Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, lovable alphas from the Harborside Nights series.

Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and figure out where he keeps going wrong. He knows his biggest fault—he leads with his heart, not his head—and that’s never going to change. But after several introspective weeks, he’s beginning to get a handle on things. That is, until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar...

Alex has spent eight years in the Army, months in a hospital bed, and far too long hiding his sexual identity. He’s guilt-ridden, damaged, pissed off, and up for a Silver Star—for the incident that nearly cost him his life, and kept him from his grandmother’s funeral. But all he wants to do is forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn’t necessarily accept, and live the life he’s always dreamed of.

The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together the hotter the flames become. But the closer Tristan gets, the more Alex's walls go up, and when the two walk onto a military base, Tristan finds out Alex’s physical scars aren’t the ones that run the deepest.

HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real series of stand-alone romances that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting—most of the time. This series is written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster with LGBT themes.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

“I am in awe of you… What an emotional roller coster…I laughed, cried and was so drawn in by him and his demons, speaks so true to the problems many men like him face. And the line that they aren’t allowed to cross costs them so much, and the havoc when they do. Well done.. M/M romance author’s should take notes. The best in the series by far!” Jean V. Booknerd

Catching Cassidy
CATCHING CASSIDY is a SILVER MEDAL Winner! Readers' Favorite Award, Realistic Fiction 

Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents' death and to try to figure out his next step.

Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands--but that's what best friends are for, isn't it? Having each other's backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family's summer home--but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along? 

It's impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt's past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn't want to lose the one woman who's shared his past and owns his heart.

Discovering Delilah

DISCOVERING DELILAH is an New Adult Lesbian Romance (#LGBT)

After the death of her parents on the day of her college graduation, Delilah Armstrong thought she could finally follow her heart and come out to her closest friends, but the guilt of going against her parents’ beliefs haunts her. The feelings she has for her best friend, Ashley, are stronger than anything she’s felt before, but Delilah has never even kissed a girl, and fear stops her at every turn.

Ashley Carver promised herself that she would never again date another girl who wasn’t out, but that was before she met intoxicatingly sweet and sexy Delilah.

When another girl offers to teach Delilah the ropes, it changes Delilah’s whole world and gives her the courage to go after the only girl she really wants. But coming out isn’t as easy as Delilah imagined, and moving past her parents’ death and the feelings of guilt she is left with is even harder. The intense passion between Ashley and Delilah is too strong to deny, but coming together means risking everything.

Discovering Delilah is an edgy, evocative, romantic story of friendship, family, and the courage to love.
