Synopsis:
Things are finally starting to look up for Skye Fletcher. She’s got a new job with a great salary, she’s finally out of the rat-trap she used to live in and into a decent apartment. She couldn’t be happier. Except for the thorn in her side, a.k.a. Cian Hunter, her arrogant and too good-looking co-worker whom she has the misfortune of being stuck with.

In spite of himself, Cian Hunter fell hard for the surly, unfriendly woman who made no secret of her dislike for him. He knows he and Skye are meant to be. Convincing her of that fact seems like an impossible feat. However, he’s utterly confident he’s up to the task. His future and his happiness depend on it, after all.

When Skye’s one impulsive, uncharacteristic little act changes the status-quo between them, her life gets entangled with Cian’s way more than she’s comfortable with.

That’s when her life really turns upside down…

5 Star review by by Trudi LoPreto for Readers’ Favorite (http://readersfavorite.com/book-review/27531):

Holding Out for Skye by S.R. McKade is a pure love story. Skye Fletcher and Cian Hunter are destined to fall in love from the first page but their journey is so worth the read. Skye doesn’t like Cian and Cian tries his best to annoy Skye, but little by little that changes. The romance which starts by accident and takes many twists and turns is so very real. Kiera, Tyler, Ash, Nick and Tasha, each having their own romances can’t help, but instantly see that there is love blooming between Skye and Cian. We the readers have the privilege of following along for both the good times and the not so good times, the break-ups, the disagreements, the shopping sprees, the dates, and so much more that makes this story so heartwarming.

S.R. McKade has written two hundred and three pages of love. Holding Out for Skye is a treasure not to be missed. It is a warm and fuzzy love story and impossible to stop reading. I wanted so badly to reach the end and see what really happens to Skye and Cian and I hated that I reached the last page and had to leave all of my new friends behind. If you are a fan of romance, falling in love, and the true meaning of friendship this book is a must read. Holding Out for Skye is a starry-eyed love story winner. I can’t give S.R. McKade enough kudos for this book. I look anxiously forward to reading more from S.R. McKade and have placed Holding Out for Skye on my favorite love story book list.

Social Media – My Biggest Mistake


I have built some perspectives on social media platforms through the years. My entrance into the “internet” was actually not like most other kids. My parents were very religious and hesitant about the internet and the content we might find on it. I got a late start, but quickly connected with people through different platforms such as mIRC, ICQ, MSN, AIM, Trillian, avidgamers, and a lot of gaming sites at the end of high school and through college. People might not realize how “geeky” gamers can get, but I think that most gamers were the first to begin social media connection purely for the sake of video games. I built forums, created webpages, slayed some dragons, and enjoyed learning about social media during those years.

My biggest mistake when creating www.aopinionatedman.com was not making mirror platforms on Facebook and Twitter (@smokendust) sooner. It just wasn’t important to me at the time and I also hated Facebook. I am now rushing to try and catch those numbers up and it is simply not possible. Google + is also a great tool for social networking that I wish I had begun when I created the website. I regret that the most when I consider the road of this blog and that is honestly saying something considering I have already tried my hand at a number of things. I don’t look at “attempts” as either a success or a failure. I just see opportunities to learn, try, and do. I have always been what I consider a “doer.” I absolutely hate procrastination… I mean you still have to do that “thing” later right?

I enjoy the interaction without obligation that I get on social media. I blog because I like to write and once I pen my thoughts I can lay them to rest. Mentally at least. I really don’t strive for perfection on HarsH ReaLiTy. Instead I hope that people read what interests them and pass over the things that don’t. Someone once said they love my blog because they never know what to expect. Well I appreciate that description and it amuses me, but I also work hard to present a forum of possibility. I don’t live in a “busy city” so I created a place where I hope something is always happening. Consider it the ADHD in me.
