Blooming Love Spring Hop Giveaway

It’s Spring and that means the birds are singing and flowers are blooming as well as love. What better way to celebrate love than to fall in love. I bet everyone remembers their first crush. Am I right? I sure do! Spring is also the season for change. Most seniors in high school are either breaking up with their sweethearts because they are moving away for university or are finding out their crush is interested in them.

So to celebrate blooming love, I decided to giveaway a paperback copy with a signed bookplate of Tammara Webber’s Easy. One winner, but depending on the number of entries I may pick two winners. The best part? It’s open international as long as The Book Depository ships to where you live (check here).

ETA: I just added Jamie McGuire’s Walking Disaster (paperback only). I’ll let winners pick which one they want. Either Easy or Walking Disaster.

easySynopsis: He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…

The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.

Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.

A groundbreaking novel in the New Adult genre, Easy faces one girl’s struggle to regain the trust she’s lost, find the inner strength to fight back against an attacker, and accept the peace she finds in the arms of a secretive boy.

walkingSynopsis: Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster. Can you love someone too much?

Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.

    Favorite thing about falling in love is falling in love. The emotions and the feelings you develop getting close to another person learning all their little traits for yourself. It’s like opening a treasure chest.

    • Jessica

      The options, the bounce in the step, etc are all great. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  2. Mindy Jarreau

    The best thing about falling in love is all the feelings you have when everything is new, and still having those feelings years in the future!

    • Jessica

      Yes-having those feelings months / years down the road must be amazing and great to experience!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  3. Ana Lucía

    I dont think I haver ever fall in love truth be told. But I’m sure all the new emotions and the big smile on your face all day long must be really nice 🙂

    Thank you for the giveaway.

    • Jessica

      The smile on the face and the bounce in the step must be very nice to experience. I’m with you in terms not having fallen in love.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  4. Veronica

    My favourite thing is the anticipation before our first kiss. All the nerves and butterflies and then the moment when it actually happens. Just so memorable

    • Jessica

      The butterflies are the best. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  5. Jules

    (Funny story, I’ve never fallen in love with an actual person) but hypothetically, if i were in love, I think what’s fun about it is how you get to know more than just the outside personality and looks of a person. It being closer to a certain someone, and getting to know them more than just the average person. Falling in love with be like finding someone you could consider as your best best friend. Ugh, ooh and falling in love means being more happier I guess. 😀

    • Jessica

      Ah Jules, we’re in the same boat! Your response is prefect! 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  6. Stephanie Harper

    The best thing about falling in love is the butterflies that take up residence in your stomach. I still have those same butterflies for my husband!

    • Jessica

      :big grin: Yay for butterflies! I have to say it’s really cool that you still get them with your husband! I hope one day I’m lucky enough to experience that.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  7. Kirsty

    It’s hard to comment never having been in love.. In a relationship I love when it’s new and you’re discovering things about your partner.

    • Jessica

      I know what you mean Kristy! I like the whole anticipation of getting to know someone, etc.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  8. Lauren

    My favorite thing about falling in love is how you feel when you are. You have this burning pain in your chest and sometimes you feel like you’re going to throw up. It’s sickening but yet so beautiful. You see the world very differently. You feel magnetically connected to the person you love. You have to be with them or you’ll feel incomplete.

    • Jessica

      It’s amazing how different you see the world when you are happy. 🙂 Which one reason why I love to read because a writer can convey those feelings well especially in a romance and we get to experience falling in love all over again.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

  9. Kara S

    I love the butterflies you get in your stomach and the feeling you get when you’re around the person you’re falling for!

    • Jessica

      Yes, the butterflies! That seems to be just about everyone’s favorite thing.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Oh yes! The anticipation of what’s to come always leaves me sick to my stomach. Eeek!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  10. Brittany

    The feeling you get when seeing that person the first time and every time after that 🙂

    • Jessica

      Ah yes! Especially when they recognize you and you see the light in their eyes.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      I agree. It’s nice to know some else gets us.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  11. Chanpreet

    For me, my favorite thing is thinking of that person all the time, wanting to see them, be with them, and once you’re together enjoying that time with each other.

    • Jessica

      That time, getting to know them is special, isn’t it? New memories, traditions, etc.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  12. Lily B

    oh gosh, everything. Waking up next to that person every day is one of my favorite things, knowing its the first thing you see 🙂

    • Jessica

      I agree. I like knowing someone gets me.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      It’s a first for everything regardless of how many relationships one has been. There’s always a “first” something.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  13. Tiffany Drew

    My favorite thing is the overwhelming feelings and the need to know everything about your new love.

    • Jessica

      Yes! It’s almost like a new piece of layer is unearthed each time you learn something new.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  14. Tamara

    My favorite thing about falling in love is the beginning, when you’re just getting to know each other and finding out new things about each other.

    • Jessica

      Especially if you both like something or dislike it. It’s nice to share those details.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  15. Joyce Elizabeth

    The best thing about falling in love… knowing there’s someone out there that has a piece of your heart, sharing that connection with someone special, and being part of something bigger than yourself.

  16. Summer Rae Seay

    My favorite thing about falling in love is the high, giddy, invincible feeling you get. It’s like you can take on the world and that’s the best feeling ever.

    • Jessica

      Ah the giddiness! Yes, I agree, but also it leaves me sick to my stomach.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  17. Michelle Morris

    The best part of falling in love is having that connection with another person.

    • Jessica

      It’s nice to know someone likes the weirdo in us, right? LOL

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  18. Deborah Russo

    The best part of falling in love is that feeling you get when you are with that one person. The butterflies, the elation you get … and even when you just think about that person, you can’t help but grin stupidly. 😉

    • Jessica

      Ah the grinning is the BEST part. I often feel as if one has a secret behind those grins.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  19. Becky Schmidt

    The best thing about falling in love is all the first. First flirt, first kiss, first everything.

    • Jessica

      The first for everything is the BEST. No matter how many times you fall in / out there will be always be a “first”.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  20. Jillyn

    For me, the best thing is that first moment when you feel hollow without that person, and you realize just how much they mean to you.

    • Jessica

      It’s a great feeling to want and need someone!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  21. Alyssa

    I’ve never been in love but I want to experience that connection with someone some day and being able to just be me with that person.

    • Jessica

      The connecting with someone is a special process.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Ah well I believe so long as two people are in love, you’ll be invincible forever!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  22. Misty Trevino

    I love love! The idea that you have so much emotion and care for another human being that you are willing to do almost anything….it is great! It is freeing, warm, and just plain awesome. After 19 years of marriage (in May), I am still in love with my hubby. I love it! My high school sweetheart. I’m only 35 and I have a lot to learn, but I know I love love <3 !!!

    • Jessica

      Awwww! You are so lucky to have found someone that early! You know, my parents met at 15/16 and have been together for 34 years. This December marks 35 years.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Yes! Someone to love you, imperfections and all. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      I agree! The whole point is getting to know someone and connecting with them. If you can’t trust them, etc there’s no point in falling in love.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  23. mayabraham

    The butterflies you get in your stomach every time you see them, even if the last time you saw them was less than five minutes ago 🙂

    • Jessica

      Everyone seems to love the butterflies. Yay for them!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Ah yes! The waiting and anticipation. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Ah yes to both! I love the anticipation.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Insecure isn’t the best feeling, but it will all work itself out if it is meant to be.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  24. Zemira Djedović (@Zemmy89)

    That’s a hard question. I don’t think I was ever really in love. So I don’t think I can answer but I’ve had a couple of crushes and all I could do is to think about them all the time which didn’t do any good, especially on my grades.

    • Jessica

      haha no thinking about them non-stop isn’t good for studying, but you know it’s an awesome feeling either way! Especially when you see them. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  25. BookAttict

    The feeling that everything in the world is exactly as it should be…
    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
    elizabeth @ bookattict . com

    • Jessica

      I’m sure at that moment, everything in the world is right with a bounce in the step.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  26. Nikki O

    That all your worries seem to fade away and time just passes by like normal. All the problems you thought were big seem meaningless. Thanks!

    • Jessica

      Ah yes, one’s problems do seem small when in love.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  27. cindi169

    The idea that I’m important to someone. Too often, our kids, parents, friends, co-workers look past us or forget about us. A lover LOOKS at me and Sees me!!

    cc_clubbs[at]yahoo[dot]com

    • Jessica

      YES! It’s important to know someone sees us and loves us for all our faults and imperfections.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Butterflies seem to be the best thing. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  28. celina k

    What isn’t fabulous about falling in love?! The giddiness, the butterflies, I love all of it! Except the anxiety and insecurities, that part isn’t fun 🙂 But the rest makes it worth it.

    • Jessica

      Yes, the insecurities isn’t fun nor is the waiting for the phone calls, but when it’s right, it’s right. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  29. Jessica Elkins

    The best thing about falling in love is the newness of it all. The rush of feelings, the fluttering of butterflies, the seconds leading up to the first kiss…..

    • Jessica

      Oooh what a great way of looking at it!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  30. Cee

    My favorite thing about falling in love is the nervousness I feel in the pit of my stomach, the overwhelming feeling that somebody is there for you.

    • Jessica

      I agree re: someone out there for you!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  31. Meghan Stith

    The feeling of being able to depend on someone.
    It’s finally spring and I can tell you, living in Upstate NY, that I’m happy to be enjoying some warmer weather. I can already tell I have an extra spring to my step. As far as love blooming, I’m sure with people feeling better, love will come. I love romance novels with my very favorites being “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon, “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire and the “Dark Lover” series by JR Ward. They’re all so good in different ways!
    Happy Spring and thanks for the giveaway!

      Happy Spring! Those of us in the Southwest have had a very mild winter, but I’m glad the east coast is thawing out.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  32. Jenny Dauksa Schaber

    My favorite part of falling in love is the fluttery feeling and the constant state of euphoria.

    • Jessica

      The butterflies seems to be a popular response. Yay for them! 😀

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Awww! Don’t worry it hasn’t happened to a lot of people, but when it does i’m sure it will be like the poets describe.

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  33. Pauline Tolentino

    My favorite part of falling in love is the act of falling in love itself. Do you get me? Haha. It’s like you don’t feel something for this person then one day you find yourself smiling (or even crying) for this one person. but I haven’t been into any relationships yet. 😀 Probably crushes. It just feels devastating once you know he doesn’t feel the same way for you.

    • Jessica

      I understand. Oh crushes are heartbreaking! It’s like, “why not me?” Ugh!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

    • Jessica

      Ah kisses and butterflies! I agree. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  34. Angela Love

    My favorite thing about falling in love is the being his center you know what I mean…. I mean when you wake up and he/she is the first thing that comes to mind or you hear a word and you smile because it makes you think of he/she or you get a text and you smile because it might only be a few words but it’s from him/her the “center” it may not last long but when you find him/her and you have your “center” moment you will remember it always as you guys/girls move through the rest of your lives together I have been married for almost 19 years and he can still to this day makes me remember being his “center” !!!

    • Jessica

      Congrats on your 19 years! It’s great that you two are still so important to each other. My parents are going on 35 years in December and every weekend they have dates-out for breakfast, maybe see a film, then out to dinner. Someone recently asked them if they were newlyweds!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  35. Cindy

    I would say my favorite thing would be all the different emotions when close or far from your loved one.

    • Jessica

      The emotions are needed in order to be in love. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  36. Darith3Duh

    Best part of falling in love is the first meeting. 😀

    I’d like walking Disaster 😀

    • Jessica

      Ah yes! The first meeting is always special!

      Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 🙂

  37. Gayatri

    Haven’t been lucky enough to fall in love with someone yet but I believe making your lover happy in return for just being able to see them smile must be the best part of falling in Love !!!
