MADE IT TO THURSDAY

Good Thursday everyone . or as we like to say Friday Eve . Ok how many of you like Rocker love stories . well if you are one I have a new author and new book for you . J.C Layne and her book  FACE IN THE CROWD

                           BOOK BLURB 

 
Jace DeLand is just tired. Tired of the groupies, the groping, the propositions. Tired of everything. Jace is the rhythm guitarist for Soul Harbor, a band who has been on a successful 20-year run and shows no signs of slowing down. Despite the success, something is missing. All of his other bandmates have gotten married and settled down, and he is tired of waiting patiently for his turn. He wants that kind of love, that someone special to spend his life with. But he’s almost given up hope.

Then, one night while on stage, he sees her. Her face in the sea of people grabs his attention and doesn’t let go. When she agrees to meet him backstage, his hopes are high, but it seems his reputation precedes him. Yes, he’s a rock star, but he’s over all of the bullshit that comes with it, he just has to figure out how to convince her of that.

Laney Mason is perfect for him in every way, exactly what he’s been missing in his life. But can it really work between them? Whatever it takes, Jace won’t give up on his shot at love. 

                      MY REVIEW 
   What do you do when you are the rhythm guitarist of a successful band and the only single guy left in the band . That is what Jace DeLand is going through , he is tired of the one night stands and the groupies trying to grope him all the time . Until the night he sees her in the crowd the one woman that could be the one . Laney Mason is the one who Jace thinks could be the one that he has been waiting for . Will they find their ever after 
   I must say the characters are cool characters and are written well . Jace is kind of brooding at the beginning of the story . He is just tired of the life of a rock star . He is sometimes kind of annoying with his melt downs and crying . Over all he is an enjoyable character and you do want to get to know him better . Laney well sometimes she is great and sometimes she comes off just a little na├»ve . I give her credit though she is sassy and does keep Jace on his toes .  Piper is my favourite character , she is Jace's sister and the no nonsense one , she keeps Jace on the even keel . She is funny and the sensible one sometimes . Over all the characters are a fun read . 
  I sat down and read this book in an evening and started reading it is a fast read so I had it done in a couple of hours . The author takes us on a rock and roll adventure . The characters are cool but sometimes they come off just a little bit childish and you just want to wrap them up and hug them telling them everything will be ok . There are also a couple of time the story seems to drag just a little . Over all I truly enjoyed the book and the characters . If you like rock star books and want a good read for an evening check out FACE IN THE CROWD .  You will have a fun time reading .

WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY

Woohoo its hump day and the first day of spring for those who are wanting this winter to be finally over . Today I have a new author and her new book that releases today . Kimberly Forrest and her paranormal book TEA WITH MONSTERS (Misfits and Rogues book one )

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
Greenlawn Hall is hiding something… But will uncovering the story of a lifetime cost this journalist her life?

Journalist Ashley Ryan has reached celebrity status with her hit television show Tea with Monsters, and while she’s proud of her accomplishments, she’s craving a new challenge. A chance encounter with a woman that bears a striking resemblance to a movie star the world believes dead piques her curiosity and reinvigorates her drive. The hunt for the perfect story… This was why she became a journalist. Following the woman home, however, may prove the biggest mistake of her life.
Greenlawn Hall is steeped in mystery, protected by a guardian sworn to keep the estate safe from outsiders. A Lazar Panther has managed to contain the secrets of the supernaturals living within these walls for over two hundred years and Adrian Lazar will be damned if they’re exposed on his watch. It doesn’t matter that Ashley Ryan calls to his panther with her quick wit and determination, there is too much at stake for him to be distracted by this unfortunate attraction. After all, the monsters inside Greenlawn aren’t the only creatures watching… 

                      MY REVIEW 
   When journalist Ashley Ryan has a chance run in with a woman who looks like a dead movie star. Ashley has a hit tv show but wants a new challenge . So the day she follows the woman home sends her right into the panthers den literally . Greenlawn manor is a special place where supernatural beings can stay and not be found out. With A Lazer the guardian and panther in charge Ashley has met her match and her mate . Will she come to the realization before it is too late or will she accidently expose everyone to the world . 
    Ashley is one of those characters that one moment you are cheering her on and in the next moment you are wanting to slap her upside the head because she is about to do something stupid .  She is feisty and sassy, but you know there seems to be something missing in her life, and you really want her to find that missing piece . She is also driven and will do anything to get a story . You see a change in her as the story goes on and she becomes a better person with Adrian by her side.. Adrian Lazer well he is a sexy, broody panther shifter who is also the guardian of Greenlawn .  He takes his job seriously man does he take his job seriously. You meet a very gruff and overbearing man, he is always at odds with Vivian and some of those arguments are so fun to read. We see a change in him as he and Ashley become more and more entwined . He seems to come alive when he and Ashley are together . I loved them as a couple they are a fun read 
    I read this book in an evening and at first it took a little while to get into the book . Once I got into the book it went fast . The author takes us on a journey that is fun to read and you will like the characters they are well written there are vampires and shifters and witches all in one book . They are like a big family and really are a fun read . Over all I enjoyed reading and will definitely look for more books by this author . So check it out you will not be disappointed

WELL MADE IT TO TUESDAY

 Good Tuesday morning all , the sun is shining and the snow is melting can't help but be in a really good mood . Today I am going to review another new author to me Dariel Raye and Muffy Wilson and their novella DEATH'S SHADOW .

                           BOOK BLURB 

 
How far would you go to bring your twin’s killer to justice?

No one notices when Brianna Denton goes missing every weekend. With no immediate family or close friends left, being alone is something with which she has become well-acquainted, but when her sister is murdered, she finds herself on a lone mission to identify the killer.

According to the authorities, ‘no body, no case.’

Brianna’s quest to find her sister’s murderer despite the police department’s refusal to help, draws her into a life of drugs, alcohol, and prostitution—the very elements that led her twin to the shadows and rat holes of the underbelly of North Beach.

Drawn into the dark underground society to face Tatianna’s killer, Brianna is about to come face-to-face with her own shocking destiny. As she unearths long-buried secrets, the tight edge of reality comes to light, challenging her tenuous grip on life as she knows it. Finding the answers she seeks could lead her to an even darker place.

                         MY REVIEW 
   When Brianna Denton's sister is missing and the case has gon cold . She takes it upon herself to find out who murdered her .The police have stopped looking there is no body, so Brianna goes undercover to the streets and enters the life of drugs , alcohol and prostitution but there is more to the story and when she meets Dr. Ben James she starts to remember the past and what truly happens to her is unbelievable. 
   I was actually blown away by these characters , they are so well crafted and complex . Brianna well she is tough as nails when you first meet her but as you see her you just want to wrap her up and hug her . She is hurting so much and she just needs to be loved and to give love . She has such a vulnerability that will touch your heart . Dr Ben is well he is a protector and a great guy with a hidden past . You will either like him or hate him . Sometimes you just don't get the read on him and when you finally figure him out you will love him . 
    I settled down and read this book in an evening  and once i started reading i couldn't put it down. I wanted to find out if she found her sister and what happened . The author takes us on a journey full of twists and turns that will have you going what the heck through out the book .  There is only one issue i have with the book and i wish it was longer and we got to dive into the two main characters a little bit more . I feel like its just the tip of the ice berg and i wanted more . I truly enjoyed this book and wow the twist at the end had me reading over it twice cause i wasn't sure the twist was real or not . So if you have an evening to dive into a good book check it out . You will love it .
