  Good Wednesday all , finally coming out of the frigid cold that has been blanketing us . I have a hot little book for you to read TO BE CHERISHED  by Robbie Cox .

                            BOOK BLURB 

A broken marriage, a troubled past, a chance for redemption if only she took it.

Cherish Lansky watched as her husband stormed out the door, bags in hand. With her infidelity exposed, she couldn't blame him. Her cravings for a past that ruined her life once just ruined her family, and it was all her fault. She needed to fix her marriage, but did that mean denying a part of herself?

The anguish of his wife's betrayal gripped Glen Lansky's heart like a life-crushing vise. He sacrificed everything for her, for their family. How could she destroy her family like she did? What did she miss that he couldn't give her? How could he fix them when he didn't even know they were broken?

She needed To Be Cherished when she couldn't even cherish herself. Glen saved her once, and now, she needed him to save her again. She feared he didn't still love her enough to, not only forgive her, but help her live again. Could Glen bring her back from the bottom and put her on top again?

                         MY REVIEW 
     Cherish Lansky is hiding something from her husband and her family is falling apart . When her husband leaves she realizes that there is something that is missing in their life . She needs to be cherished and saved but is her broken hearted husband Glen up for the challenge .He saved her once but can he save her and their marriage again . 

    The characters are very complex and well written . Cherish is a complicated woman who has lead a wild life in her teen years. Sometimes she comes of as really needy and na├»ve at the beginning of the story as the story goes on you see her become the woman that she is destined to be . Glen is a sweet guy that has been pushed to the limits of his relationship. He really wants to get his relationship back . He sacrifices everything for Cherish now its time to take back the power . With every marriage has families and these families are polar opposites of each other . They also make lives complicated for each of them . 

   This is a complicated book of love and life and what it means to get back the relationship and love a couple needs . You watch them hit rock bottom and try and build their relationship back together. The author takes us on such an emotional ride. You will be sucked in and most of the time you are on the edge of your seat . There were moments I felt that could of been condensed  and yes there were times I really wanted to shake the main characters and say wake up . Over all I really enjoyed this book and the story line was one that happens all the time . So If you want a good read with flawed characters and the road to redemption. This is the book for you . So check it out .

  Well its Wednesday and its still frigid out there, so another day of reading and eating storm chips , yes I said storm chips .  Today I have a cool new book and author for you . TALES OF THE SEA WITCH  by Lou Wilham

                            BOOK BLURB 


No creature under the sea is born dark; some just lose themselves.

Irsa's name was lost long ago to the obscurity of being labeled a villain. Born with enough magic to boil the ocean, all Irsa wants is a simple life with her best friend, Aislin. But when they discover their connection is more than just friendship, the pair must fight all odds to be together.
Surviving the sea isn't easy, but Irsa has never known any different. With Aislin by her side, she must face a wicked witch, defy a prince, and maybe gain all she ever wanted: a happily ever after.

Tales of a Sea Witch is an origin story full of mermaids, and undersea magic for fans of Tithe by Holly Black, and Wicked by Gregory Maguire.

                       MY REVIEW 
   Whats under the sea , Irsa is born with enough magic to boil the ocean . She just wants to live her life with her best friend Aislin. When they discover that there is more to their relationship then just being friends . Things start to get difficult for them  and they loose what they had to keep each other safe . When their love is tested will it survive or will Irsa be lost to the history books as a villian . 

   This book is a twist on the lil mermaid . The characters are well written . Irsa has been through so much , i don't think that she is evil I think that she was misunderstood . Noone really got to know her and when they did they thought she was evil . I actually liked her as  a character . She isn't afraid to be who she is and will do whatever it takes to be that person . Aislin is her best friend but there is more there . Aislin is a sweet girl who loves Irsa even when its wrong to. She is light and sweet but sometimes comes off as a little naive at the beginning of the story . There are so many people against them that when they are together they are the best of what each other needs . I love that they are so sweet together . 

   This book is a great twist on the story of the little mermaid . We get to see the characters before Ariel. This is the story of Ursala or as they called her Irsa . There is a lgbtq aspect to this story which I thought was well written for a fantasy book . The characters are well written and complex . The story is one that will keep you flipping the pages all night long . It is a fast read and you are taken to a place under the water where you want to stay for awhile .  I really liked this story and i really wanted to hug Irsa and tell her that everything will work out you don't have to become a villian . I think you should grab this book for an evening of reading you won't be disappointed . If you like fantasy this is the book for you ,

   Good morning all , I hope your Tuesday is going well  and you aren't in the deep freeze like I am . If you are in the deep freeze or having unseasonably warm weather I have the book for you . SPARK ( Web of Desire book one ) by Aleatha Romig

                            BOOK BLURB 

“From a little spark may burst a flame.” ~ Dante Alighieri

A simple ember to dried kindling can ignite a raging fire.

I’ve made my mark and proven my loyalty to a man, a city, and a way of life. That loyalty has provided me with all the spoils of success. For the longest time, that hasn’t included a woman at my side.

There is only one beauty that can bring my untapped desire to life.

I shouldn’t have opened the door. Cracking open the stone and striking the flint is my doing. What follows is hers.

With something so intense, will this spark lead to a blazing inferno? Will we make it out of the ashes before everything I hold dear is ravaged?

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance, Spark, set in the same dangerous world as Secrets and Twisted. You do not need to read the Web of Sin or Tangled Web trilogy to get caught up in this new and intriguing saga, Web of Desire.
SPARK is book one of the WEB OF DESIRE trilogy that continues in FLAME and concludes in ASHES.
Have you been Aleatha’d?

                         MY REVIEW 
   When the girl of his dreams walks back into his life , she isn't the innocent young runaway that he helped . She is the woman that will knock your socks off , but he thought she was dead . Why is she here and playing poker in an all stakes poker tournament . There is more to the girl that stole his heart in that alley . He wants to know why she was gone for so many years and she wants to stay but there is a reason she left and that reason will either bring them together or blow their whole world apart . 

   This story has I swear the best characters that the author has written to date . Maddie is a sweet girl that has been through so much and has grown up and learnt things the hard way . In some ways she is still the young girl that Patrick knows but in other ways she is a tough as nails poker player that has so many secrets . She is such a complex woman that you want to just hug and say things will be ok . There is so much you want to unravel in her life .   You will love her when you start to read her . Now Patrick oh what can we say about the sexy man who is part of the Sparrows force . He is tall and sexy and oh so alpha . Patrick has also been through so much from his life , from life on the streets to the army to the elite group that is going to take down the underworld . You really want to either climb him like a spider monkey or hit him in the back of the head cause how stubborn he can be . They are a complex couple that you want to find out more about each of them . They are explosive together and will have you fanning yourself . 

   This book starts off with a bang and keeps you hooked from the first chapter . The author takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotion . This book is fast paced and goes on in a two day period with a poker tournament as back ground .  For being the first book in the series I like that the author took us on the roller coaster ride and really didn't bog us down with back stories . She blended the back stories seamlessly with what is going on today .  There is intrigue and oh the romance well it could make you kindle melt and your cheek blush . Ok going to tell you there is a big and i mean big cliff hanger at the end and so can't wait till book two comes out , crossing fingers I am hoping soon . So if you want a book that will heat up your cold nights this is the book for you .  Trust me you will not be disappointed and you will fall in love with Patrick and Maddie.
