GOOD MONDAY TO EVERYONE

 Well it is Monday again and today I have book two in the Mists of Mayhem series  . CIRCLE OF THE MOON  by H.p Mallory .

                           BOOK BLURB 

   Game of Thrones meets Harry Potter…
Welcome to the sexy world of magic and mayhem—of witches, vampires, fae and lycanthropes.          This episodic, monthly fantasy romance series features all the characters you know and love from the New York Times Bestselling Jolie Wilkins series.
Never heard of the Jolie Wilkins series? Don’t let that stop you. This series serves as a standalone, immediately sucking you in and refusing to let go…

Episode 2: Circle of the Moon
Sinjin Sinclair might have been estranged from his family and friends, but that doesn’t mean he stopped caring about them. Learning of a possible threat to his niece, Emma, Sinjin has his own card to play.
Meanwhile, Emma finds herself increasingly attracted to her professor, Stone, who might not be all he appears. Then there’s also charismatic Clark who seems to be vying for her attentions.
And what will it mean for Bryn when she receives a visionary dream where she learns her sister, Jolie, long suspected to be dead, might actually be alive and lost in a place called the Abyss?
Find out what happens in the second episode of the Mists of Magic and Mayhem Series!


                          MY REVIEW 
    Bryn has a vision of her sister and Sinjin is keeping tabs on Emma and the family .  When Bryn heads out to talk to an old friend about the dream of Jolie being alive . Sinjin knows and devises a plan to go and help her out. While Emma is finding herself more and more attracted to her professor Stone Draper .  Then there is Rand and the hurt he is going through .  There is a lot going on and man its good . Will everyone survive and come out with their hearts intact. 

    In book two we get to find out more about some of the characters . There is more to Stone then we first thought . He is hiding a big secret , which of course I am not going to tell you buts Its good really good . Bryn well she is determined as ever to find her sister . She is feistier then ever and really determined .  Emma is well she is confused and fighting her feelings big time .  I love her so much she seems like a typical teen trying to get through school and she is wearing the weight of the world on her shoulders .  These characters are so well written and getting more and more complex . 

  In book two we find out more about some of the characters that we love already after book one .  The author takes us on a journey that has us heading to the fae realm and beyond . I can't wait to see where the author takes these characters . I love how we can read these books as a stand alone series . You don't need to read the Jolie series but it is a good idea. This series is becoming one of my favourite series by the author . She can weave a tale using magic and romance to fuel the story. I will warn you there is a big cliff hanger but you don't have to wait long to get the next book . So if you want a fun series to read at the beach check it out , you will not be disappointed at all .

WOOHOO ITS FRIDAY

Well we made to Friday and its going to be a great weekend. Today we have a new author and new book . WHEN IN LUCK by Colleen Nye .

                           BOOK BLURB 

   What if your celebrity crush was attainable?---------------------------------------------------You know that old saying: When in Rome? When you’re in a place, an environment different than you’re used to, you’re excused from how you’d normally act and are allowed to—heck, are obliged to—indulge? Try telling my best friend, Alice, that. When I had to back out of our girl’s trip to Maui, Alice not only got to meet her celebrity crush, but he actually asked her out on a date! One she tried to cancel. She won’t get out of it so easily when I step in. One thing is for sure, we never thought we’d ever meet our celebrity crushes. And at our age and with kids? We certainly never thought they’d pursue us! But here we go… awkward moments, blinding spotlights and all.

                       MY REVIEW 
   When Alice goes on vacation in Maui without her best friend Vivianne who is at home with her kids and her crappy husband .  When Alice meets her celebrity crush she is flustered . Vivianne comes to the rescue with hilarious results . Vivianne steps in and when they have so much fun with the men that waltzed into their lives . Will they be able to have fun and keep their crushes or will real life bring them down again . 

   Vivianne and Alice are such fun characters to read . Vivianne is such joy and full of life even though she is tied to a man that doesn't love her anymore . She wants to live but she doesn't know how . She is the comic relief to Alice who may be feisty but she is also very sad .  They are fun to read and you will be giggling through out the book . They are well written and you will love them . 

  This book is a book that you can sit by the pool and read . The author takes us on a fun filled ride  that will have you giggling . It has your fantasy of finding and falling for your celebrity crush and him falling in love with you . There are some fun times through out the book and the author did something different and its from just one of the characters point of view . So we see everything from Vivianne's point of view. Sometimes I felt the book was a little too wordy and it took away from the story . Also it dragged in some parts i felt it could of been thinned out just a bit . Over all I enjoyed this book and want to see if they really do end up all together in the end of the series . So check it out

WELCOME TO THURSDAY

  Good morning everyone today is cloudy , windy and dreary here on the farm so its a great day to read . Today we have COLLISION FORCE  by C.A SZAREK


                            BOOK BLURB

    The last thing Andi needs is a cocky FBI agent…
Bad boy FBI agent Cole Lucas always gets his man. So when the unthinkable happens and one gets away, Cole grits his teeth and hunts the human trafficker all the way to Antioch, Texas, where he collides with Detective Andi MacLaren.
Cole doesn’t do small towns and he doesn’t get involved with women he works with, but Andi tempts him in ways he doesn’t want to acknowledge.
Two murders, her partner shot and leading the investigation on her own, the last thing Andi needs is a cocky FBI agent that sees her as no more than a tagalong.
As a widow and single mother, she’s used to being on her own. When Cole gets stuck without a place to stay, crashing on her couch puts them in dangerous territory.
Attraction and passion bring Andi to a place she left behind when her husband died.
Her three-year-old son quickly wiggles his way into Cole’s heart, and he starts contemplating things—family, love—that he’d never planned for himself.
Can being forced to work together make them stronger or will their differences jeopardize their case and their hearts?

                         MY REVIEW 
 What happens when a small town deputy is paired with a cocky FBI agent . Well sparks do fly . When Cole Lucas has a criminal evade him, he is out to find him . Which takes him to Anitoch Texas where he has to work Andi Maclaren, a small town deputy who is working on her own case . Will the sparks fly or will their differences push them apart . 

 Wow is what I say about the characters in this story . Cole well he is cocky and sexy . He is one hundred percent a man's man . There is something under Cole's gruff exterior a  sweetness that Andi pulls out of him . Andi is sweet but tough as nails she is good at her job but not so good at feelings . She has been a widow and a single mom for so long . She doesn't know what to do when Cole comes and stays on her couch . You can feel the sparks fly with these two . 

  This is the first book I have read from this author and I am going to continue reading the series . The author us on an adrenaline fueled roller coaster ride . The characters are well written and complex you will love them and want to slap them upside the head through out the book .  I love strong female character and this book has one Andi is that character . The only down side to this book that it seemed to drag a little in the middle of the book . I felt like it seemed just to be a little slow . Over all i really enjoyed this book and going to dive right into book two . So if you like a good romantic suspense and this book to your summer reading list .
