Lexi Miles – Custom Fit

Custom Fit is Book One in the Holiday Fever Series

I found a new author to stalk … I mean follow.


I can’t wait for Lexi Miles next book. I wonder if it will involve characters from Custom Fit or if it will start fresh with a new set of people to fall in love with. It might since this is a stand alone with a happy ending. I believe this is her debut novel and as debuts go this was a good one.

Lexi starts the story with the lovely Sunny landing her dream job. Or maybe her favorite fantasy to dream about. Sunny is a stylist and has been sent to dress the one and only Striker. Sunny has seen all of Strikers movies, multiple times but feels she can separate her movie star crush from her day job. Sunny and Striker instantly get along and communicate easily with each other.

A few obstacles present themselves for Sunny. She is tormented and vexed by a member of Strikers camp and then is belittled by a member of her own. Will it all work out? Can she keep her crush from growing into an affection?

I won’t go into too much details about the part I dislike in an attempt to keep my review spoiler free. But there are several characters that I dislike and their actions as well. You’ll know who I’m talking about as soon as they appear in the book.

Next time you’re trying to pick a book to read I suggests you give this author a shot. Happy endings and stand alones are such a nice way to end a stressful day.

New #teasertuesday idea

#teasertues might be getting an addition to the line up


I have a few blogs I follow of writers I find incredibly talented.  I think I’ll start sharing their work with you on Tuesdays.

In the past I have shared excerpts from my writing but too much of the same can get monotonous so I refrain from sharing every time I make major changes.  Keep that in mind when you look at Out of the Blue any time I share from that work in progress.  I may have it on here ten times (I don’t know the exact number.) but those are the polished version of three or four edits.

I also share websites, bio’s or info pages of people that have really helped me along on my path.  People who have taken me under their wing in one way or another.

I will continue to do both of these but I want to share your work in progress links.  I have a few in mind I have read to get my ReBlog Train moving.  Leave you link in the comments and I will check it out.

I can’t always blog.  But I like to share things I think are worth sharing and that you’ll enjoy when I can’t talk about my writing with you.

This lady has my back during #1linewed.

As a child, I entertained myself for hours playing pretend, but not with dolls and such. I created stories and pictured them in my mind, sometimes even acted them out, my well preserved secret until now. I spent years after leaving school trying to figure out my niche. Not being a literary enthusiast, I never thought my childhood pastime would lead in this direction.

Are you in the market for an Editor?

This lady is helping this new writer.  She is very affordable for the writer on a budget but you get a lot of bang for your buck and patience.  She is opening my eyes to the writing sins I make repeatedly.  If you’re in the market for an editor, cover or other book paraphernalia consider giving her a try.  Oh and did I mention she also writes!

Are you looking for a beautiful cover for your own novel? Do you need a book trailer made? Is there a certain quote from your book you would like made into an eye catching teaser?
