Title: The End Begins (Seven Trilogy #1)
Author:Sara Davison
Publisher: Ashberry Lane/WhiteFire Publishing

One of them is a prisoner and one of them is free. The same one.

Bookstore owner Meryn O’Reilly and Army Captain Jesse Christensen are on opposite sides of a battle. When martial law is declared, Jesse and his platoon are sent to Meryn’s city to keep an eye on the Christians and make sure they are not stepping outside of the confines of the law.

Fiery and quick-tempered, Meryn chafes under the curfew and other restrictions to her freedom. Jesse is equally amused, intrigued, and terrified by her spirit, knowing she could find herself in prison if she shows defiance to the wrong soldier.

His worst fears are realized when she commits a crime he cannot protect her from. Now they both face an uncertain future, and the very real threat of losing everything, including their lives. With time running out, Jesse works feverishly to convince the authorities to show leniency to Meryn. And to convince her that love can overcome any barrier that lies between them.

My Thoughts:  

This series introduced me to Sara Davidson and was a complete pleasure to read. I really love her writing style and how she draws readers in. Each of the 3 books were well written and easy to follow. They offer a steady pace and relatable characters. The stories unfold naturally and are realistic so you never feel like the author is grasping or disconnected. These books will have you on the edge of your seat wanting more as you root for characters. Emotions build slowly, but you will be 100% invested before you know it! I loved how each book is built upon the last and how closely we were able to follow the characters throughout the books. I highly recommend this series!

Do You Need A Second Income?

Sometimes a second income is exactly what the doctor ordered. If you’re a single parent, living on your own, or just struggling to get by with the income that you have when combined with someone, you just need a second income to get by. But a second income doesn’t always mean working the craziest of hours, having no social life, and wondering what the point is in all of this because all it gives you is a couple of extra pennies at the end of the month. A second income has the purpose of being able to support you financially so that you feel like you have more freedom, it should expand your career options, and it should expand your love for life. The more you find yourself occupied and out of the house, the more opportunities you should be faced with. A second job could lead to travelling opportunities, making new friends, and a better lifestyle.

Be Prepared To Put In The Work To Get There

Sometimes this is a quality that people lack, especially when they feel as though their life is pretty busy as it is, it can be hard to find the motivation to actually do the things needed to get a second job, and one of these things is going back to education. It all depends on the career you want to take, but on excellent one that you could take on part time, is a counselor. There are so many people out there with mental health issues that more than need your support, and going freelance and only working when you want is easy enough to do with this line of work. You can get a masters in school counseling after your initial training which would put you in a position to earn more money from the role. You might only need to do a  couple of hours a week to earn a really nice income to support yourself.

The Easy Option

If you’re the type of person who already struggles to get out of bed in the morning as it is, then trying to take on a role where you’re out of the house even more, might be close to impossible. But there are easy ways that you can make some extra cash without having to leave the comfort of your own home, and one way we love is blogging. It’s just so easy to do, there’s plenty of money to be made from it, and it’s something you can personally grow and be proud of.

Managing More Money

It’s all well and good trying to get more money, but sometimes more money can cause more problems. You might feel as though you have a certain freedom to spend more, and it becomes harder to stay in control of it. So the best thing we can advise is to make sure you’re planning each day like you have no money. If you live like your bank account is empty, it’ll be hard to ever actually empty it. This year should be a year that’s dedicated to saving, and we think this is the best way to do that!

Run Your Home For Less: The Basics

If you are wondering how to look after your money more effectively. One of the first places you will want to look at is the way in which you run your home. By paying close attention to this, and finding interesting and effective ways to spend less here, you can ultimately make your finances work out so much more effectively on the whole, and that could make a huge difference to your life in general. So what are the things that you should focus on in the home to ensure that you are running it as frugally as you possibly can? As it turns out, there are some basics which you will probably want to focus on first and foremost if you are to get this right, and those are what we are going to take a look at here. As long as you get these right, you will be well on your way to a much more frugal home.

Keep Your Home Temperate

You need to have a good degree of control over the temperature of the house if you are to run it for less. This works in a number of ways. First of all, you will find that keeping it a good temperature is important for the home, as it stops unwanted things like mold from occurring – all of which do actually cost you more in the long run. But if you want it to work out as well as possible, you will also need to make sure that you are looking after the heating and cooling systems in your home too, as if they are not in their best possible condition then they will probably not be working as efficiently as possible, and therefore costing you more than necessary. Find the best ac service in your area that you can and have it serviced regularly, as well as ensuring that you look after the heating too. It will make all the difference.

Less Is More

When it comes to saving money in the home, energy usage is one of the first things you are likely to think about. When it comes to energy, less is more. You want to find as many ways as you can of keeping your energy usage down, so that you don’t have to worry about the bills at the end of each month or each quarter. That means focusing on everything from using less water to making sure that you are only heating the home when absolutely necessary. If you can keep your energy usage down, you will also keep the costs of running the home down, and you will be helping out the environment a little as well.


Finally, remember that in everything financial, the most important thing is always to find some way to plan. As long as you plan out your home finances, you will find it considerably easier to keep them under wraps and in order, whereas if you fail to think ahead you will only find that you end up in muc morte trouble in the long run.
