WELL IT IS THURSDAY

  Welcome to Thursday or as I like to call it Friday Junior . Today we have a thriller for your long weekend reading . BLOOD TIES by Nicholas Guild

                           BOOK BLURB 

 
Homicide detective Ellen Ridley of the SFPD is tracking a serial killer terrorizing young women in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ridley is sure she's cornered her most likely suspect: Stephen Tregear, a hacker and code breaker who works for U.S. Naval Intelligence. But Tregear is not the killer... he's the killer's son.
Ridley and Tregear team up to look for Tregear's father, Walter, in an elaborate game of murderous cat and mouse. As the body count rises, Ridley must race against the clock to stop Walter before he kills any more women—and Tregear must finally confront the father who has been trying to kill him for twenty years. Blood Ties is an elegant and frightening thriller from Nicholas Guild.
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

                         MY REVIEW 
    When Ellen Ridley starts tracking a seriel killer of young women in San Francisco . she thinks she has the suspect in a hacker Stephen Tregear but it isn't what she thinks , he isn't the killer but knows who the killer is ,. Together they hunt down the killer but as the body count starts to rise . Ridley and Tregear need to race the clock to find and confront the man who has been trying to kill Tregear most of his life . 
   
  The characters are well written and complex. Ellen is a kick butt woman who can take down a suspect and then have fun in the next breath . She can be tough and has a very analytical mind . I really liked her 
Stephen is cool and calculating hacker who is also kind of sexy and a Navy man . I seriously think he is the way he is because of the way his father was . There are so many characters in this story and the author does a great job of keeping them all in the story at the right times.
  
   I started this book and was blown away . I got sucked in and couldn't put it down ,. The author has us on an edge of your seat rollercoaster ride . There are multiple views going on the books but keeps the two main characters up front and center .  The story kept building and setting up the plot with great intensity . There are red herrings that will have you thinking woohoo they have him but then the author takes us in a totally other direction . The pacing was fast and didn't let up at any time through the book . I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to read other books by this author . So if you want a great thriller check it out .

WELCOME TO TUESDAY

Well its Tuesday and it is Easter week . Time to stock up on your spring and summer reading list . I have a short story for you to add . NIGHT BORN by Linda Thomas-Sundstrom


                           BOOK BLURB 

  
Vampire and slayer... opposites too closely connected for their own good?

Seeing the same face over and over in a century's worth of priceless art brings slayer in waiting Danika Douglas to a specific museum. She has vowed to kill the immortal she believes is responsible for killing her mother, and finds a worthy opponent in handsome Alexander Kent, the immortal in all those paintings who might or might not be the vampire she seeks.

                          MY REVIEW 
    Seeing the same face in pieces of priceless art bring Danika Douglas to the same museum over and over .  She has a reason for being there , she has mad a vow to kill the vampire that has put her mother in a coma and slowly dying . But when she sees Alexander Kent , the vampire that could or could not of hurt her mother , she is torn . Will she be able to kill him or will their lives be entwined for all eternity . Will a slayer and a vampire find what they need in each other . 
    The author does it again, she has written some pretty complex characters . Danika at the beginning of the story you just don't know why she keeps coming back to the same place over and over . She is strong and determined but there is a side to her that is sad and it seems all she wants is to be loved and wanted . She is dealing with so much and is hurting at the same time . You just want to wrap her up in a warm blanket and give her some tea . All the while telling her everything will be ok . Well lets just say she totally does a 360 degree turn around towards the end of the book when we find out exactly what is going on . I truly liked her and how the author wrote her both sweet and kick butt at the same time . 
Alexander well he is sexy and immortal, he is also a tortured soul . Who is actually tired of being the way he is and maybe this woman can help him . You do get a dark vibe from him but honestly there is more to him then what we first see at the beginning . We all know what a vampire is , tall, sexy and so alluring . When you get right down to it , he is lonely and tired . He is enthralled by the young woman sitting there staring at the same picture and wants to find out what her story is . When push comes to shove he is there to protect Danika .
    This novella is a sit on the edge of your seat page turner . You are sucked in from the very beginning . The characters are well written and complex . Even though it is a short story the author takes us on quite a ride. I read this book in about an hour and couldn't put it down . The story has a Buffy feel to it , the slayer coming into her powers and the dashing vampire that has stolen her heart . She doesn't know if she should love him or slay him .  I actually cried a couple of times through out this book I couldn't help it . There is a scene where you will cry not going to tell you but when you read the book you will know when it hits you . If there is only one thing I would love to have the book just a little longer just to see more of the characters . Over all I really loved this book and the authors way of writing . So if you want a great summer read check it out you will not be disappointed

WE MADE IT TO FRIDAY

Good morning all woohooo it is Friday finally . This week just seemed to last forever or was it only me . Today I am going to review the fifth book in the Vampire Romance The Bryn and Sinjin series book 5 . THE SUITOR  by HP Mallory

                            BOOK BLURB 


   
A war between the creatures of the Underworld and those who would see them extinct,
A woman desperately trying to understand and control her powers,
A seductive and charming vampire who serves as her protector, but hungers for much more,
And the man who steps out of her childhood dreams into her waking days with secrets of his own……


After a surprise attack on home soil leaves Queen Jolie and her court reeling, locating enemy forces becomes priority Number One. Desperate to prevent another attack, and with nothing to go on but a vision from a dream, Bryn leads a scouting party to find the enemy stronghold. The hunt takes Bryn, Sinjin, Dureau, and Damek to a land ruled by fae magic where the cost of admission might be more than they bargained for.

As I watched, the pointy end of the tree branch thrust itself directly into my palm. My vital essence was unceremoniously extracted. At first, I assumed the magical tree was merely stealing my blood. But after a few more seconds, I realized something much more elemental was being forcibly ripped from my being.
I clenched my teeth to keep my silence, although it took every bit of my considerable self-control to do so. Crying out my anguish was impossible with Chevalier watching me, eyes narrowed, as if he expected me to weep or scream as though I were a little girl.
My fangs descended from my efforts to muffle my torture, cutting into my lips in a manner that reminded me of the bark ripping into my hand. Gradually, my canines retracted little by little until I could no longer feel them at all. I was neither tensing my body nor grinding my jaw together any less or more than before, so that withdrawal made little sense to me.
The procedure ended as abruptly as it began. The branch extracted itself from my now profusely bleeding palm and resumed its original position, as though it had never moved at all.
“Why aren’t you healing?” Bryn asked as she reached out and gripped my hand.
“I know not,” I began.
“Sinjin,” she interrupted. “Your skin feels… warm.”


What happened to Sinjin? Does Bryn finally fall for him, or does her heart beat for Dureau, the man from her dreams? Read The Suitor to find out!

This is book five of the Bryn and Sinjin Series. Book one is Sinjin.

                          MY REVIEW 
  After a surprise attack on the castle Bryn and Sinjin are out for blood . The castle is reeling after the attack and Bryn and Sinjin are off to find the stronghold and bring them down . So off the to the land that is protected by Fae magic where Bryn, Damek, Sinjin and Dareau might not like the admission to the land . It could be more then they bargained for . 
  The gang is back  Bryn and Sinjin are back and honestly Sinjin is as sexy as ever and wh find out more about him . I have loved him since i first met him and was so excited to see him grow and become such a great leading man in his own series . You will love him and want to either climb him like a spider monkey or slap the smug smile off his face . Bryn well what can we say about Bryn she is strong and sassy and also kick butt.  I think she comes into her own in this book . She really takes control and really lays down some butt kicking . I truly liked these characters individually but when they are together they are a hot couple 
    I have liked all the books that this author has written but honestly I will say that i had trouble getting into this book . I felt like i just couldn't get into them at the beginning of the book . I kinda felt that there was something missing just couldn't put my finger on it . Once I got into the book I couldn't put it down . The author took us on a fun filled adventure with some smexy moments that will keep you reading .  You will laugh and cry and be on the edge of your seat . Over all I did enjoy the book and love the characters . If you want a fun read check it out .

WE ARE HALF WAY THERE

 Welcome to Wednesday the half way marker to the weekend . I have a book for you for your weeken  d read. This is another new author to me C.J Hartnett and her book DEMONS ( Demon series book one )

                           BOOK BLURB 


 
Succubus demons thrive on sex for power. Except Mina. It’s a simple life. No attachments. No attractions. But when she meets Caleb, the sex is phenomenal and she actually feels something. Caleb just wants a one-night stand, but after having mind-blowing sex, he changes his mind. They agree to be friends with benefits. When Mina and Caleb learn the truth, will their white-hot passion be enough to stop them from killing each other?

***Warning: This book contains explicit sex, graphic language and is intended for mature audiences.***

                         MY REVIEW 
   Poor Mina , she is a  succubus but she doesn't thrive on sex for power . She has had trouble and people are constantly putting her down calling her nothing . So she goes one night stands and living a simple life with no attachments . Until the night she meets Caleb  and the sparks fly and the sex is out of this world . After a bit they decide to be friends with benefits but they want more but can't .  When things happen that might put their lives in danger . Will they be able to survive it without killing each other . 
    There is a fondness for the bad girl in this novel . Mina is a bad girl with a heart of well i wouldn't say gold, but she is doing the wrong thing for the right reasons . She is a strong woman / demon who in my opinion has been told she is no good for her entire life . She grows stronger as you get to know her. I truly liked her and what she does to survive . Oh I guess I should of told you she is a succubus and needs sex to survive , but the way she picks her targets will make you cheer . You will love her trust me . Caleb well honestly at the beginning of the book he comes of as a bit of a jerk and a womanizer . Yet there is something deeper in him that you find out pretty early on . He is hurting big time  and his mom is dying . There is a lot of pressure on Caleb and all he wants is some fun . You see him grow up through out the book and you see him start to fall in love with  Mina . Even though something happens to him he still wants to keep MIna safe . You will have to read the book to find out what happens to him , I am not telling you . 
   I have had this book on my to be read list for awhile. So i decided to sit down the other evening and start it . I was looking for a good read that was a fun read . This was a fun read , I mean we have a bad girl and a bad boy . What is going to happen there well let your imagination wander on that one . The author takes us on a roller coaster ride with her writing and her characters are well writtten . There is a lot of paranormal and oh so many sexy scenes in this book that will keep you turning pages all night long . So if you want a book that will heat up your spring night this is the book for you. Oh and book two is out and i am off to read that right away . Check it out

WELCOME TO MONDAY

   Good morning all , yes it is Monday and the sun is shining and the meadowlarks are singing so all is good on the farm .  Today I have a new author to me Suzanne Nemec and her paranormal love story CROSSING ALL BOUNDARIES (Destined to be lovers saga book one )


                           BOOK BLURB 

  
Tell me you can’t see me, Jennifer…

Jennifer’s eyes gazed up at the translucent man leaning against the wall; a man that she’d seen many times before. It was her eighteenth birthday, and when she leaned over to blow out the candles Jennifer focused her eyes on his roguish grin that made her crave his lips on hers.

For centuries, Josh had guarded the most gifted visionaries. But when his friend and High Priestess boss, Gisabella, had assigned him as Jennifer’s protector, he quickly realized that the girl was possibly the most “ungifted” person on earth.

Tonight something was different, though—when had Jennifer grown up? As a protector, Josh couldn’t allow himself to get close to anyone . . . but there was something about the way Jennifer was flipping her hair back with a hint of a smile on her untouched lips. Trust me, Jennifer, I’m not the kind of man you should be flirting with.

A moving story of former lovers, Demetri and Astraea, who fall in love once again, as Joshua and Jennifer; finding themselves in the throes of something illegal: interdimensional marriage. As forces continue to threaten Gisabella’s reign, Josh and Jennifer must decide whether true love can conquer all.


                      MY REVIEW 
     What do you do when you can see a ghost of a man standing there watching you . If you are Jennifer  you smile at him and continue to go on with your life . Josh has guarded people for centuries but when he gets assigned to watch Jennifer there is something different about the young woman .  Gisabella has something up her sleeve when she puts Jennifer and Josh together . As we find out theirs is a love story that spans centuries . Will they be able to love each other and keep the forces that want to hurt Jennifer and will their love survive . 
     What can i say about these characters , they are written very well and honestly they are complex . Jennifer is  a sweet young woman who well actually comes off a bit naive in the first half of this book . She is sweet and kind but she is also the baby of the family and is treated like a baby by her parents. She does do some growing up and she really becomes a strong woman . Josh is a strong character who has a heart of gold but also has a hard job to do and he totally loves Jennifer but doesn't let her know cause he is scared of what could happen. He has been a guardian for centuries but his mind has been wiped . He is kind and sexy in his own way . Now my favourite character of them all Gisabella, she is hilarious and fun loving , but she is also kick butt as the boss of Josh. The patter between Gisabella and Josh are so much fun to read , they fight like brother and sisters but they also have a love that has grown . 
    I sat down with no preconceived notions of what this book was about . I was going in blind and I must say I was impressed . It took me just a little bit to get into the book but once i did i was hooked and couldn't put it down . The characters are well written and you can't help but fall in love with them . This sweet paranormal romance follows Demetri and Astraea's love story through the centuries . This sweet story has romance and a mystery and trials of love . The story will keep you reading all night long . You really want to find out what is going on and who is trying to keep these two apart. The only thing I found at the beginning it just seemed a bit slow and it was kind of hard to connect with the main characters . Just keep going the book gets so good and you will not put the book down . There is a cliff hanger at the end so i can't wait to see where book two takes us . So if you want a sweet paranormal romance check it out .

                            BOOK BLURB

After her best friend is murdered by a rogue, Lucky Jones enlists in a vampire hunting organization hoping for revenge—regardless the cost.

Scroll up and 1-click this vampire romance to start reading today!


                       MY REVIEW 
    Working in a donut shop in a small town is all that Lucky Jones has to look forward to for now . Working with her best friend the accident prone Lucky has worked herself into a nice rut. Until the day a vampire comes into the shop and kills her best friend and almost kills her .  She was saved by a insanely sexy, brooding vampire hunter . When she is given the choice of entering the organization to hunt the rogue vampires or go back to her life with no memory of anything . She decides to enter the organization and starts training but is sidelined by a sexy vampire hunter and in pain from the intensive training . Will she survive the training but will her heart survive the sexy vampire hunter . 
    I was so excited to sit down and read this new book . I really love all the characters in this authors series . These characters are no exceptions . I love Lucky and Van . Lucky aka Desimonia Jones . She is snarky and sassy and she is also the most unlucky girl out there . It seems everything she does or touches ends up blowing up on her . She ends up on her butt quite a few times . Deep down she is very insecure and doubts herself all the time. But like with all great characters she starts to come into her own and overcomes her insecurities to become kick butt. I truly liked her she is a great addition to book heroine .  Ok lets talk vampirer hunter . Wow Van is sexy and brooding . There are moments when you meet him that you either want to slap him or climb him like a spider monkey . There is more to him and when you find out about him you will love him even more . He can fight like noone's business and he just has a way about him that will have you wanting more .  Oh lets not forget about Collin the head of the organization .  He is the head of the organization  and yes he is sexy and not so brooding . I feel there is more to him then meets the eye, He is very secretive . Can't wait to find out more about him  Ok lets talk evil men Ivan is the vampire who is reeking havoc all over and creating rogue vampires . He is also very sauve and charasmatic . You really want to hate him but he is just kind of likeable .  Trust me you will really like all of these characters . 
   I sat down and started reading this book and honestly couldn't put it down . We have mystery, action and some romance . The characters are all well written and you will love them . The author can write tongue in cheek characters and storys with a great passion . I have never laughed so hard cause i actually can relate to Lucky and her klutziness . I think most of can . Even though it is has mystery to it it is a light fun read that will have you reading all night long . So check it out It is a laugh out loud read that will have you sucked in and reading all night long

GOOD MORNING ALL

 Good morning my lovelies , its is Friday eve and I am one happy girl . Today we have a new book for you THE ROSE( The Redemption Duet book one )  by Sheritta  Bitokofer


                           BOOK BLURB

 
Belle lives her life from day to day, nearly crippled by her social anxiety. But if you ask anyone in Levi about it, they'd say she's a sweet, quiet girl who works hard to keep up her family's small ranch while holding down a job at the bookstore. No one knows that beneath her smiles lay a shy introvert who wants nothing more than to stay at home. It was easier to stay alone, stay isolated. That's when she was the happiest. But during one thunderstorm, all of that changed and she met the first man she ever actually wanted to spend time with. 

Leo made a habit of avoiding people when at all possible. Getting tied down, making friends, having a life only meant suffering. The darkness that followed him since his adolescent years never left, not really. It'd show up and ruin any hint of happiness that came his way. Running from his past and the brother that cursed him with this demon, Leo never expected to find something like home in the little country town of Levi. And he didn't expect one storm to bring him to the barn of a girl with fire in her eyes and a face as beautiful as a sunrise. A sunrise that could chase away all the shadows.

                       MY REVIEW 
  What do you do when you just want to stay in your house and forget the world . After wearing a mask for the day  Belle battles with social anxiety but she hides it very well behind a mask of happy smiles . But that all changes one night while during a thunderstorm she finds a man in her barn trying to stay out of the rain . That night changes everything for Belle and the man she found Leo. A man who has been on the run for so long , he never expected to be met by a sweet girl that took his breath away . But with the demons of his past will they be able to have their happily ever after . 
   The characters are well written and complex . Belle is such a sweet girl but she hides a secret that cripples her . Social anxiety is such a hard thing to deal with . She has a mask that she slips on that has her saying yes and trying to be a people pleaser when she is at work and out . You really want to wrap her up in a blanket and tell her that everything will be ok and we can work through it together. She does really grow in the story and it seems like she starts to come out of her shell and when with Leo , she is a fiery independant woman . She still battles but it seems like she is starting to fight instead of just coping . 
Leo well he is such a mystery, he is a loner and there is so much more to him . He is fighting his own demon since he has been a teen .  He is sweet and well kind of sexy and is attracted to Belle. He seems to be a calming influence to Belle and actually really doesn't sugar coat anything with her . He seems to bring her out of her shell and they are really good together , such a sweet couple . But when i say that you must remember that they are two damaged people surviving . 
   I settled down to read this book and was so sucked in by the end of chapter one , The characters are so well written . I really loved Belle she just kind of struck a nerve with me, she kind of reminds me of a couple of people i know . Even myself a bit .  The story will have you laughing and crying . I did ugly cry in parts of this book trust me you will ugly cry too. Just so you know this is a clean read but it so doesn't distract from the story or the characters . There are a couple of spots where i did feel like the story did kind of dragged but over all the story kept me reading all night long and on the edge of my seat most of the time . Leo and Belle will worm their way into your heart , the book does end on a cliff hanger and i can't wait to see how it all works out for them . So if you want a sweet book check it out .

GOOD DAY ALL

   Good day all its hump day . Today I am going to review a special book to me . I absolutely love this author and this book is so good . JERICHO'S WALLS  by Cathy Jackson

                            BOOK BLURB 

  
Jericho Buchanan has been riding hard trying to distract herself from her past, but she can’t get away from the ghosts that haunt her.

When she rolls into a new town, thinking she might stay awhile, she finds herself attracted to one particular resident.

One she should stay away from at all costs.

Joshua Nun has a bad attitude and a past he shares with no one. When he meets the newest town visitor, he loses control. She evokes feelings of anger, rage, and most dangerous of all, passion.

Could the woman he despises be everything he needs?

The same forces that are pushing them apart seem to draw Joshua and Jericho together. Will they give in to their desires, or will he let her ride out of his life forever?

Publisher’s Note: Breaking Down Jericho's Walls is a Christian Romance with adult themes. It includes a few spankings, slightly intense chastisements, and a light D/s theme.

                      MY REVIEW . 
    Jericho has been through so much , loosing her husband and child have made Jericho a shell of her former self . She is running away from her past and the ghosts that won't let her go. When she rolls into a small town , she is thinking that she might stay awhile . Until she meets the diner owner and her brother the coffee shop.  They come into her life when she is vulnerable and she is scared . When Joshua Nun comes into her life he brings out emotions in her that she has buried long ago . But will they have their happily ever after or are they too damaged from their pasts to know that they belong together . 
   The characters in this book are totally amazing . They are well written and complex. Jericho is tough as nails but she has been through so much and is trying to come out the other side . She has a relationship with God but at the moment you feel that her relationship isn't that strong . She has the ghosts of her past that haunt her and it seems like she has become one with the pain . When she meets Joshua he pushs buttons in her that she thought were long gone and that scares her big time .  Joshua Nun well he is a brooding, sexy man . He has his own demons that he is trying to work through . When he meets Jericho there is an attraction there that he just doesn't undrstand at first. He is trying to stay away but there is more to love then what goes on . He is a little grumpy but he does have a heart of gold and would do almost anything for the people he loves . These characters are perfectly imperfect and they will grab your heart and hold on . 
    I adore this authors writing style, it is complex and you get sucked in by the end of chapter one . The characters are well written and complex, you will fall in love with them . You will cheer for them and want to keep them safe . This is a christian story but it has an edge  to it . You will want to keep reading and you really want to find out if they are going to get together or not. The author has a way of bringing out all sorts of emotions in her characters . Trust me here ladies I ugly cried through this book . I mean i really ugly cried, there are a couple of scenes that the tears will fall and not stop.  I read this book in an evening and it has stayed with me . It will tear at your heart strings , rip out your heart but also put it back together again . So if you want a story that will stay with you for a long time after you have finished reading it . Please check out JERICHO'S WALLS .I promise this book will have you reading well into the night

He’s a notorious crime lord, a kidnapper, and an artist.

Deliver #1
Vanquish #2
Disclaim #3
Devastate #4
Take #5
Manipulate #6
Unshackle #7
Dominate #8
Complicate #9

                     MY REVIEW 
  Tiago Befell is evil and he is out for blood . Kate is the one thing that he can have and noone can take away . When he takes Kate he doesn't realize the power she will have over him . He may be evil but when she is with him there is more to life then the evil that he has lived in for so long . Is there a way he can have her and have a life away from the evil that has blackened his heart . 
  All i can say about these character . I thought that the characters in Devastate were well written . That is where we first meet Tiago . In take . the author builds on the the character and makes him very complex. He is not what he seems to be . He is evil but there is a reason behind his evilness . He is an alpha , dominate and oh so sexy, but there is another side to Tiago a side that he realy doesn't show that often . With Kate he starts to show that side just a little . The side where he worships her and maybe can actually love her in his own twisted way .  Kate well what can i say about her , she is a fighter and all she wants to do is get away . She sometimes comes off a little naive . She has been through so much first being taken and locked away by Van surviving that and then being taken by Tiago. Most woman would just give up but not Kate, like i said she is a fighter . Always thinking of a way to get away from Tiago . Then she doesn't want to she becomes more to him and she doesn't want to run away . She is a survivor and you will want to just wrap her up and tell her everything will be ok . Each character is great all by themselves but when they are put together the are explosive . You will love them trust me . 
     I was so excited to get this book I have been waiting to see if the author would write Tiago's story and boy she didn't disappoint . This book is so emotional I will admit there were parts of this book wher i had to set the book down and walk away for a few mins .  I seriously think this is the darkest book the author has written . She takes us to places that will have you seriously thinking what the heck did i just read . The characters are so well written and you will love them and hate them at the same time . I honestly didn't know if the author could redeem Tiago but i must admit she did . The twist towards the end of the book had me gasping with surprise .  I ugly cried a couple of times so be prepared . If you want a book that will have you on the edge of your seat all the way through . This is the book for you . You don't really need to read the book before but i would just to get the feeling for Tiago . There is no cliff hanger so there is a happily ever after . Check it out I promise you will love this book.

ITS DRAGON MONDAY

  Good day all , today I have the fourth book in the Guardians of Scotland . HIGHLAND HOPE  by Victoria Zak.

                          BOOK BLURB 

  
Never trust a dragon.


If the scars on Maggie’s body aren’t enough to remind her of that truth, the terrifying demons that plague her nightmares do the trick. Her vengeance runs deep as she sets out on a soul crusade for justice. She will kill her fear. She will kill a dragon.

When did he become a hero?


Deceit became second nature to Dragonkine warrior, Caden Ross, until he held Maggie in his arms. But she could never know his true nature, the Dragonkine blood pulsing through his veins. By night, his dragon magic slays the demons in her nightmares. By day, he walks by her side, longing for a time when she could love him and the beast that lurks inside him.


Lines are drawn and war begins.

With the awakening of the tyrant Dragon King Drest and the Death Dragons breathing down his neck, Caden must warn his family and unite with his brothers to protect the ones they love.

Will Maggie overcome her need for revenge and fight with him, or will he win the battle, only to lose her forever?

                          MY REVIEW 
   Welcome back to Scotland and Caden and Maggies story . Caden Ross has been a loner for a long time . Until the day he held Maggie in his arms and got her safety . He hasn't been able to walk away from young woman . He is there in the night when he heals her nightmares and is there in the daylight to be beside her and keep her safe . She has a mission to kill a dragon to maybe easy the wounds of what happened in her past. So Caden has to hide his true nature from Maggie . With the Dragon king awake and the death dragons getting closer and closer . Will they be able to keep each other safe and will Maggie over come her fear to love the man that is also the dragon that has her heart . 
   I must say that the author really out did herself with  these characters . I love all the characters in this series but Caden and Maggie have a soft spot in my heart . Maggie is such a sweet girl you will fall in love with her . She is carrying some very heavy scars though both physcially and emotionally . She is sweet and sassy and doesn't take any guff from anyone especially Caden. She hates him or does she, and it is fun watching her come to terms with her feelings .  Caden is well lets just say wow , he is strong and sexy and oh so cocky . He is trying to come to terms with what it is like to have a family dynamic around him. He also is fighting feeling for Maggie , he thinks he doesn't deserve her and wants to leave but he can't . He is a great warrior and somewhat of a cad . You will love him and you will want him to get together with Maggie so much . They are wonderful characters an deserve happiness that only they can have .  Conell , James and the rest of the clan are back to help Caden and Maggie realize that they belong together . 
   I settled down and read this book in an evening . The characters are well written and complex. The author takes us on an adventure of epic proportions . There are dragons, evil entities , a mystery and oh so much romance .  I love the dragons in this series they are all steeped in history and make for such good reading . The author blends history and the lore of dragons flawlessly . I read this book in about 3 hrs . I couldn't put it down  I was sucked in by the end of chapter one . If you want a great story that will have you laughing and crying and laughing again this is the series for you . Check it out.

WE MADE IT TO FRIDAY

 Good morning all we made it to Friday with no bumps or bruises . Today I have a psychological thriller for you , this is a first time author for me . So let me introduce you to Helga Zeiner and her book MINE FOREVER (A Survivor psychological thriller)

                            BOOK BLURB 


"You're mine," he said, "forever"—and a chill ran through her.


It’s 1978 and Johanna loves her adventurous new husband, Kurt, with all of her young, naive heart. She'll follow him anywhere—even far from their home in Germany to a small mining town deep in the Australian bush. Traveling across rocky seas, Kurt begins to unravel, revealing his true, disturbing personality.


Alone and isolated from friends and family, Johanna struggles to navigate her husband's increasingly violent temper and manipulative behavior. Exploited to help him dig in the mines for the legendary black opal, Johanna faces a miserable life, filled with fear and abuse. Her fate seems sealed—unless she kills him first.

                           MY REVIEW
   When Johanna and her new husband are heading out on an adventure to Australia with her friends and their boyfriends . As they work in Australia Kurt starts to unravel and the abuse starts to get worse . Alone and scared Johanna struggles with the fact that Kurt is getting worse . Will she be able to survive or will she end up dead . 
   The characters in this book are complex and well written .  Johanna is a strong but also very na├»ve . She was a happy go lucky woman that was heading on the biggest adventure of her life . She is systematically being torn down and abused , you feel like you want to save her . She comes out the other side so strong and she is one tough woman . Her friends Eva and Isabella are hiding their own abuses and scars . They have all gone their own ways but they are all hiding a secret . You really just want to hug these women and tell them everything will be ok. Now lets talk Kurt and Uewe and Dieter . I honestly tried to like these men but oh it was hard . Kurt was unhinged and thought the world owed him . He was suave at the beginning but as the story went on he was evil . He was cruel and abusive and it just kept getting worse as the story went on . The other guys were to me followers . They were just as bad in their own ways . Dieter was just about as bad as Kurt in his own way .  You will love and hate each character at some point in the book . 
    I sat down to read this book , thinking about how I love thrillers .  This book is long and the author takes us on such an emotional ride . The characters are well written and the story is one that could happen in today's society . It does go on all the time . I yelled at my kindle a few times . I ugly cried all the way through this book . I just wanted to hug Johanna and the girls and tell them everything will be ok .  The ending will have you cheering . So if you want a good book that will keep you reading all night this is the book for you . Just be prepared to have tears rolling down your eyes . If you have any triggers over rape and abuse this might not be the book for you.  Just check it out for yourself .

WOOHOO WELCOME TO THURSDAY

  Woohoo welcome to Thursday or like I love to call it Friday Eve. Today I have another new author for you all to read . Merethe  Walther and her book  MERCURY IN RETROGRADE .

                           BOOK BLURB 

 
Aralyn Solari spent the last three years of her life in the galaxy's worst prison after a compromised run ruined her flawless smuggling record five years prior. Now that she's free and has the promise of an easy job with a ridiculously large pay off, her last gig should be a cinch. As long as she follows the runner's standard, anyway: get in, get out, get paid. Then, she can spend the rest of her years retired on Earth, hidden away with some well-deserved credits.

All of that changes, however, when she runs into her ex-boyfriend Caden Madigan: the man she suspects of setting her up all those years ago. Now, he's wearing a UDA badge and uniform, and says that she's in danger and being set up again. To Aralyn, the benefit of a huge payday outweighs the risks--or so she thinks until her "easy" job turns sour and she ends up wanted for a crime she didn't commit, her smuggled goods get stolen, and her ship--down to the toilet paper--gets trashed.

Now, Aralyn's got no choice but to try a last-ditch effort to get her payload back, get her money, and maybe even some closure... which proves difficult when she finds herself caught in a conspiracy that threatens everything and everyone around her. With government agencies and stone-cold killers on her trail, Aralyn's life has literally become a ticking time bomb. Caught up in lies, revenge, and a harrowing game of blackmail, one misstep could end with her captured, enslaved, or perhaps even worse: thrown back inside the galaxy's worst prison for the rest of her life, waiting to die.

                        MY REVIEW 
   Aralyn has been living the last three years in the worst prison in the galaxy . After she was compromised on a smuggling run After she is freed she is promised a big payday for a run that she can retire on .  Well after she runs into her ex boyfriend things change and not for the better . Deep down she thinks that he set her up the first time and she doesn't trust him very much . Will she take his advice or will the thought of all that money make her do something stupid . 
    There are a lot of characters in this story and they are well written some are stronger then others . Aralyn is such a strong character, she takes no gruff from any one . She really doesn't trust easily and will do what it takes to get things done. Aralyn can show that you can kick butt but also show emotion and cry.  Kita i think has to be my favourite character . She has been through so much in her past but she still is bubbly, sassy and loyal till the end.  The men in this book are strong too but the woman kind of put them in the back seat . I think that Riordan is a pretty cool guy , he has unbelievable hacking skills that keep him busy . Over all the characters are really complex and diverse.
   Ok i am going to admit this when I sat down to read this book I honestly didn't know what i was getting myself into .   I really like sci fi but wasn't sure how I would like this book . Well lets say i got sucked in and couldn't put it down . The characters are great and I love that there is a kick butt heroine who can still be vulnerable and cry . The author takes us on a roller coaster ride full of twists and turns . You really can't trust anyone and you will be screaming at your kindle a few times . You will also want to slap a couple of male characters upside the head a few times .  The story moves a long a nice pace and the characters don't stay too long in one place so the story doesn't get boring . I truly enjoyed this book and going to look into book two . So if you like sci fi with strong characters this will be a good book for you .

ITS WEDNESDAY

   Good Wednesday morning all , today we have a prequel to review . FINDING THEIR RHYTHM  the prequel to Back on Track series by J.C layne

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
Two young boys. A friendship that lasts a lifetime. A dream that they refuse to give up on.

Who would’ve thought that matching band t-shirts would be the beginning of a multi-decade friendship? That’s exactly what happened with Brett Winters and Mitch Lansing. From the time they met in middle school, the two were inseparable, quickly becoming more like brothers.

Fast forward a few years and no one gets them in their haughty Atlanta high school, so they spend their time with a few carefully chosen friends, bonding over stolen beer and their love of music. The boys dream of a life in rock n’ roll and their band, Peanuts Envy, is going to be their ticket to the big time.

Finally in college, the bond gets tested, girls get in the way, and they find themselves on different paths. What began as a childhood dream in a greasy car garage could end up being the very thing that will force them to part. 

                            MY REVIEW 
 What do you do when you see the same guy wearing the same band t shirt as you , you strike up friendship that would last for years .  Brett and Mitch met in middle school and forged a friendship that would take them all the way through high school and beyond . When things get tough and their high school they keep company with a small group of friends and start a band. Dreaming of a rock and roll life they start Peanuts Envy. But like all good things there is always some conflict . When they hit college , bonds get stretched and girls get in the way and each are sent on different paths in life . Will they be able to keep the band together or will what they started long ago be the thing that splits them apart.
    I truly liked the characters in this story , they are complex and likable . Brett and Mitch are your typical teenagers . I feel that Brett is the more emotional lovable one  and Mitch is the one that wants it all , he wants fame and fortune and just get out of the home town. There are girls that come and go and so called friends that come and go from their lives . Noone can tear them apart . You will really like these guys and think back to what your high school was like . 
    This is a book that you can read and it takes you back to your high school years . The friendships and hardships that you have lived through is in this book . The characters are really well written and you can really relate to them . I laughed  and man i ugly cried through parts of the book . There were a few scenes where i laughed so hard thought my poor husband was shaking his head at me. Even though i loved this book i felt that there were some areas just kind of dragged out a little bit . That didn't stop me from liking the characters and the story line . So if you want to meet the guys when they were young check out this story ,
