GOOD WEDNESDAY ALL

    Good Wednesday all , today we are going to review an author I love . J.D Brown and her new book NEVER TRUST A DEMON ( A Daughters of Eve book 2 )


                            BOOK BLURB 

  
The rules for demon slaying are simple.
Rule #2: Never trust a demon.
...Unless Heaven tries to kill you.


It’s been four weeks since the birthday from Hell, and Lyn’s life is finally getting back to normal. Or as normal as it can be for a P.I. with the ability to see demons.

Then Sam comes back.

It seems the wicked, sexy, demon who shares her soul isn’t done using her. Good thing she’s determined to end him. But when Heaven sends an angel to assassinate her, Lyn’s determination goes up in smoke.

Sam offers protection, but for how long and at what cost? And why the heck does The Big Man Upstairs want her dead?

Never Trust a Demon is the second book in the Daughter of Eve series. If you like young, fresh urban fantasy with a kickass heroine, lots of goofy comedy, and a complicated paranormal romance, then you’ll love this new page turner by award-winning author J.D. Brown.

Perfect for fans of Darynda Jones, Illona Andrews, and Izzy Shows.

                      MY REVIEW 
   
   What do you do four weeks after the birthday from hell , you try and get back to normal . That's what Lyn is trying to do until she is being tracked by a side that she really didn't think she would be fighting against . Sam the sexy demon is offering protection but they just don' know for how long . Will they all survive the attacks and will they figure out why the big guy upstairs wants her dead . 
  This is the second book in the series and I must say the characters are getting better . Lyn is such a smart aleck . She is sassy and a laugh riot . She is having such a bad time . Trying to figure out what is going on . She always seems like she is too late to the party .She goes through heartbreak in this installment . I mean big heart break . She also thinks she is going crazy a few times . I love Lyn so much she is fun to read . Sam well we just don't know what he is up to and actually what he is . He is smoking hot and still all sexy as sin . But you have to decide if he is a good guy or a bad guy . He does some things that will let you honestly think he is actually a really good guy  Angie she is well lets just say she has her hands full trying to keep Lyn safe . There is more to her also and we find out a lot more in this book . There is also a tragedy that rocks Angie's existence . Oh and then there is detective Noah Jackson , he is well he is hot but you just can't trust him . He is more then a detective that everyone wants to sleep with . These characters have grown so much from the first book and the author really puts them  through the ringer . You almost feel sorry for them a few times . I said almost feel sorry for them . 
   This is a laugh out loud read that will keep you laughing all the way through. The author really takes her characters in so many new directions and does it with a bunch of sass and hilarity . That will keep you on the edge of your seat laughing hysterically through out . You will have so much fun reading this book.  Just be prepared to laugh and have fun with this series . I will warn you that there is a big whopping cliff hanger but that isn't bad . Well it kind of is only because the author has to write the third book . So if you want a summer read to end out the season check out the DAUGHTERS OF EVE series .

GOOD MONDAY

   Good Monday all , I hope that everyone is surviving the heat or storms that are happening all around us lately . I personally have been trying to stay cool and while doing that I have caught up on all my reading , reading some great books . Today we are going to review THE BOOK OF UNWINDING (the witches of New Orleans book 2) by J.D Horn

                            BOOK BLURB 

   
The struggle for power continues in the sequel to The King of Bones and Ashes from Wall Street Journal bestselling author J.D. Horn.
With their magic diminishing, warring factions of New Orleans witches desperately search for the Book of the Unwinding—a legendary grimoire, hidden by spells, that holds the key to unimaginable powers. As a ruthless struggle erupts in a maelstrom of malevolent magic, psychic Nathalie Boudreau finds her destiny intertwined with that of an exiled witch.
Her name is Alice Marin, a vulnerable young woman trapped in a realm of illusion. Only Nathalie can free her, but first she must come to understand and master her own extraordinary abilities.
Now, in a world where betrayals have become the order of the day, it will fall to two women to restore rightful balance amid terrifying chaos.

                        MY REVIEW 
    Welcome back to New Orleans and the witches of the Martin family . Nathalie Boudreau a young psychic is in the middle of a struggle to control the magic erupts . Her destiny lies with Alice Martin who is trapped in the realm illusion. Nathalie is the only one that can save her and set the balance back in place. 
     The characters in this book have surely grown up . They are well written and you really start to care for some of them . Nathalie is one of the main characters and she is always in the place where she is needed at the right time . She comes into her own and we see her fight really hard to help Alice . Who I really loved in the first book . She is trapped and is slowly being drained of her powers by her father . Who wants to come back into the world . Lissette is finally understanding her family and what is going on . But will it be too late for them .  She is a character that you just don't know which way she is going to go . In this book we have also seen that the characters have grown and evolved in their magic or the lack of magic in some cases . 
   I truly love this authors writing style , he takes us on a journey through magical world and might scare us a bit  along the way . The author uses New Orleans as a character all in its own right . He adds a lot of the lore and magic of the city . I got sucked up in all the magic of this book . There were a few parts where it felt a little slow and the characters seemed a little stuck  Over all I truly enjoyed this book and loved the characters . This book is gritty and you see that all magic isn't good . You will be on the edge of your seat most of the way through this book . So if you like a more dark fantasy book this is the one for you . This can be read as a stand alone but if you really want to get to know the characters you should read King of Blood and Bones . So check it out for your late summer reading list .

GOOD MONDAY ALL

   Good Monday all , happy long weekend to those like me are celebrating today . Today we are going to review ZERO REPEAT FOREVER by G.S Prendergast

                           BOOK BLURB 

  
The 5th Wave meets Beauty and the Beast in this fast-paced and heart-stopping novel about an invasion of murderous creatures and one girl fighting for her life at the end of the world.

He has no voice or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.
Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.
His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.
Until a human kills her…

Sixteen-year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her fellow campers can only stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless, but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…

                         MY REVIEW 
    When Raven and her best friends are sent to a wilderness camp . Things go from bad to worse when an alien invasion happens . Waiting at the camp for rescue was the safest thing to do until one killed her boyfriend . The all bets were off when Raven gets hurt and Eight a drone of the aliens deserts his unit and helps out Raven . Their survival depends on each of them trusting each other . Will they survive 
  This is a twist on beauty and the beast with an alien twist . The characters were well written . Raven is the heroine but she isn't invincible . She shows her age a few times which endeared her to me . She was a teen ager and scared but she did what she had to do to stay alive. Eight has no name , no identity all he is programed to do is dart the earthlings and just keep going . But when he looses his partner he starts to have feelings of desertion . He is an intriguing character because he doesn't speak and everything is said internally . They are good together and they actually work good together . 
  This book reminds me of the 5th wave , just a little slower . The author takes us on a rollercoaster ride across Canada. Which I loved cause hardly any sci fi fantasy books are written with Canada in mind as the place where it could happen . I will say the book is slow and it takes a bit to get into it but once you do it is a good read . I was shocked that there was a cliff hanger at the end. Over all I really liked this story and the characters . This would be a great summer read for your teen . Have them check it out they won't be disappointed

WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY

   Good morning all , hope your Wednesday is going well . Today we are going to review BLOSSOMING FLOWER by Vivian Winslow

                            BOOK BLURB 

   In the wake of the collapse of her father’s business empire, Flor, the gorgeous twenty-one year-old daughter of disgraced former Brazillionaire Gustavo de Lima, is forced to forge her own path in life. Flor decides that none of it—the private jets, the vacation homes and the luxury cars—were real. Or at least they really didn’t matter. The only thing that’s real for Flor is her love of horses and her desire to go to veterinary school. Heading into her final year of college, Flor seeks out the help of an unlikely benefactor to secure a summer internship working with horses. Arriving at the secluded Belo Horizonte ranch, Flor is awed not only by the majestic beauty of the place, but also by handsome cowboy and skilled horse trainer, Collin Taylor. Yet nothing is quite as it appears on the surface. When the hidden past is revealed, will love end up blossoming for Flor?

                      MY REVIEW

        What would you do if you are 21 years old and the daughter of a disgraced Brazillionaire . You forge your own path and head to university and then vet school . Flor is that girl and when the summer comes and Flor needs a job. She heads to an old benefactor and an internship on a horse ranch. When she gets to the secluded ranch there is much more going on then she knows . Also a very handsome trainer Collin . Will Flor be able to figure out the secrets and will Collin and Flor come to terms with their feelings . 
  This is a good read and the characters are well written. I feel there could of been just a little bit more to them though . Flor is a sweet girl and a determined girl . She is trying to put her past behind her but it keeps coming back to bite her on the butt .  She is willing to do what she must to get through school and on to her dream . But sometimes she just comes off a little over dramatic in my eyes . She is trying too hard to separate herself from her past.
Collin is your typical brooding male who is better with horses then people sometimes . He is carrying a lot of weight on his shoulders . He does have times of sexiness but they are overshadowed sometimes . The cast of secondary characters really add to the story . They all have such an impact on the two man characters . They hold some of the cards from the past and why it is the way it is on the ranch 
  This is the first book I have read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised . The author takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions . She puts the characters through a lot and they always come through the other side . There were a few things that I wanted to happen was more interaction with the horses . They say that there are horses in the book and I wished there was more interaction . Also the ending had me a little cranky yes there is a big cliff hanger . You don't know where Flor and Collin's relationship is going .  Over all I did enjoy the book loved the romance aspect. I will be checking out the other books in the series to see where they all end up . This would be a good read for the cabin while you are enjoying your summer evenings . Check it out
