Release Blitz - Mollywood by LG Pace III & Michelle Pace

Title: Mollywood
Series: Carved Hearts #2
Authors: L.G. Pace III & Michelle Pace
Release Date: October 27, 2014


"A good chef can throw seemingly random ingredients into a pot and create something delicious. On rare occasions, fate does the same thing with hearts. With the right combination of elements at just the right time, a couple can fall head over heels in love. That being said, blending two lives can get messier than any kitchen and also a hell of a lot harder to clean up."  

Molly's food truck took Austin by storm, and she's got more prospects than she knows what to do with. Her crazy ex is out of the picture, and she's moved in with her gorgeous boyfriend, Joe. She and Joe rarely see one another, and when they do, their time is squandered arguing. Molly's anxious to break this cycle because the tension between them is literally making her sick.  

After years alone and shattered, Molly has reawakened a part of Joe that he was sure couldn't be revived. He's terrified of losing her, but their combined baggage makes every step forward seem littered with landmines. Molly's more than worth the fight, but she shouldn't be the one he's constantly battling. A master carpenter by trade, Joe has restored countless treasures which seemed beyond repair. He's determined that he and Molly won't be the exception.  

Fate kicks in the door and rocks them to their very foundation. Boundaries are tested, tears shed, and Molly and Joe will question everything they think they know about themselves and each other.



#1 Good Wood

Good Wood was such a beautiful, unexpected book that reading (and loving) the follow-up, Mollywood, seemed like a no-brainer. I had high hopes, and L.G. Pace III and Michelle Pace not only met them, they exceeded them. This book was as beautiful as the first – and it gave me all the good feels. 

Molly Hildebrandt and Joe Jensen are living together, and both of them have seen their businesses grow exponentially. Life should be perfect, but with work keeping them apart and their constant bickering, it’s enough to make Molly sick and Joe scared of losing her. 

They are determined to make this relationship work. Joe loves his quirky girl and just wants to keep her safe and by his side. Molly has put her past – and her psycho ex – behind her and loves being with her sexy carpenter. 

But breaking the cycle of arguing isn’t so easy. Especially not when fate throws a spanner in the works, and they find themselves facing an uncertain and unexpected future.

Argh, I LOVE THIS SERIES. I couldn’t stop talking about Good Wood after I read it andMollywood is no different. It’s. Just. That. Good. This story was exceptionally – and seamlessly – well-written by two authors, and had me laughing, sighing, shaking my Kindle (as a substitute for these characters who sometimes should have known better) and crying. Sometimes all within in a few pages. 

Joe... Oh, sexy Joe. I love his gruff exterior, and he showed excellent growth from the first book. He’s not perfect – what man is? – but he is perfect for Molly. Who is, in turn, perfect for Joe. I loved them together. I loved their happy moments and their sad. I loved their (sometimes) misplaced anger and their willingness to make it work. The only thing I didn’t love? That it had to end. 

I hope to get more from this series – and not just the upcoming Heartwood, which I’d like to be opening right about now. There are so many wonderful characters here that could, and should, get their own stories, starting with Mac and Kelly. Please make that happen!! 

Mollywood is the second book in the Carved Hearts series and should be read after the exceptional Good Wood. No cliffhanger.

~ Review by Beth

A few months ago I picked up a book titled Good Wood. I thought, hey, this looks like a light and fun read. Boy, was I wrong. But I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the book and the characters. In Mollywood, the second book of the series, we get reacquainted with Joe and Molly

Molly is still running her thriving Wrapgasmic food trucks and Joe's carving business, Good Wood, has really taken off. The couple are living together and still trying to adjust to the ups-and-downs in their relationship. Fate has other plans in store for this couple, though. As if their coupling didn't start out tumultuously enough, throw in some drama and meddling family members, and you have yourself another great read! 

I adore this couple. A-D-O-R-E! Not just the fictional one, but also husband-and-wife authors, LG Pace III and Michelle Pace. The stories they create are so real and heartfelt.Mollywood was a great addition to this series and when I reached the end, I was surprised to see it wasn't an end at all; we're getting more of Joe and Molly soon! Just to clarify, it's not a cliffhanger, rather a Happily For Now. And I, for one, cannot wait to see where their story takes them next. 

Fabulous & Fun, Mollywood gets 4 1/2 Stars from me.

~ Review by Erin

I found myself looking over at Joe’s perfect profile, and felt that familiar ache in my chest. Frustrated at our disjointed state and suddenly overwhelmed with emotion, I stopped in my tracks. Joe turned to face me, a perplexed expression marring his flawlessness. I placed my hands on both of his uncharacteristically smooth cheeks and looked him in the eye. 

 “I love you, Joe.” I felt my throat narrow painfully, and blinked away unexpected tears.  

“I love you, too.” His frown deepened and he brushed my sweeping bangs away from my eyes. “What’s wrong, Molly?”

It was a good question and I wished I had a reasonable explanation. We’d come so far and been through so much, it seemed unfair that we couldn’t get it together long enough to enjoy any of it. I’d been wracking my brain for weeks to find the right thing to say, a verbal Band-Aid to slap over a hemorrhaging wound. It made me wish my love life could be as straightforward as my job.  

A good chef can throw random ingredients into a pot and create something delicious. On rare occasions, fate does the same thing with hearts. With the right combination of elements at just the right time, a couple can fall head over heels in love. That being said, blending two lives can get messier than any kitchen and also a hell of a lot harder to clean up. I wasn’t usually such a bawl baby, but when it came to Joe, all bets were off. I was freaked out about “us” just then, and what we were becom- ing. I pulled his face down to meet mine and kissed his lips delicately, so he wouldn’t be covered in my lipstick all night.  

“Let’s try to enjoy ourselves and talk about the ugly stuff afterwards. Okay?”

He began his current journey by telling his two daughters bedtime stories about a magical realm and a hero named Terel.

He dwells in the great state of Texas with his wife, novelist Michelle Pace and their children.

Michelle Pace lives in north Texas with her husband, Les, who is also a novelist. An Iowan native, she is the mother of two lovely daughters, Holly and Bridgette, and one uber-charismatic son, Kai. A former singer and actress, Michelle has always enjoyed entertaining people and is excited to continue to do so as a writer.
