WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY

 Well we made it to Wednesday , woohooo us . today I have a graphic novel for you . REVIVAL  by Tim Seeley .

                            BOOK BLURB 

      For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now it's up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them. In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect. The sell-out hit series created by NYT Bestselling author TIM SEELEY and Eisner winning artist MIKE NORTON is collected with bonus material!


                             MY REVIEW 
 When the people you love start to come back to life, you start to wonder what the heck is going on . That is what is happening in a small town in rural Wisconsin.  Officer Dana Cypress has to deal with the backlash that is going on . Will they small town survive the onslaught is about to hit them straight on

   The characters in this novel are well written and complex . Officer Dana Cypress is one of the main characters and she is tough and sassy . She wants to figure out how these people are coming back to life .  But the best characters in the book are the Revivers the ones that have come back to life . Martha , Dana's sister, is one of those people . She may look ok on the outside but there is a darkness about her and Dana has to figure out who murdered her on top of everything else .

   I was excited to get this book , I really love graphic novels and this one was on my bucket list to read. I really like that is based in Wisconsin and the author uses actual places in the state . The characters are well written and complex . You will love them . The drawings are so sweet . Each panel looks old school and the there are some dark components to the story . Tim Seeley writes a wonderful story that is part murder mystery , part horror and part drama . There are multi layers to this story and you can follow it through each of the threads . Now lets talk illustrations . Mike Norton is amazing at taking each character in the story and making them unique in their own way . He truly brings the story to life in each panel . I recomend  this book to anyone who loves a good story and great illustrations to go with the story . I would add it to my summer reading challenge .

GOOD TUESDAY

Good morning all today I have a book that I actually was really excited to read .  It is actually part of the DC icons series . CATWOMAN (Soul stealer ) by Sarah J Maas

                             BOOK BLURB 

 
Sizzling with action and suspense, #1 New York Times bestselling author SARAH J. MAAS delivers a coming-of-age Selina Kyle who will steal readers' hearts in a new, highly anticipated YA blockbuster: CATWOMAN!

When the Bat's away, the Cat will play. It's time to see how many lives this cat really has.

Two years after escaping Gotham City's slums, Selina Kyle returns as the mysterious and wealthy Holly Vanderhees. She quickly discovers that with Batman off on a vital mission, Gotham City looks ripe for the taking.

Meanwhile, Luke Fox wants to prove that as Batwing he has what it takes to help people. He targets a new thief on the prowl who has teamed up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. Together, they are wreaking havoc. This Catwoman is clever--she may be Batwing's undoing.

In this third DC Icons book, Selina is playing a desperate game of cat and mouse, forming unexpected friendships and entangling herself with Batwing by night and her devilishly handsome neighbor Luke Fox by day. But with a dangerous threat from the past on her tail, will she be able to pull off the heist that's closest to her heart?

                          MY REVIEW 
  What is a cat to do when the bat is away . Two years after escaping the slums of Gotham our feline , Selina Kyle comes back as the wealthy but mysterious Holly Vanderhees. When she realizes that Batman is not in Gotham she hatches a plan to pick Gotham clean .  With the help of Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn they start wreaking havoc in Gotham. Luke Fox aka Batwing wants to prove to the people of Gotham that he has what it takes to help protect the people . When he runs into Cat woman , she just maybe the Batwings undoing . Will they be able to keep love out of the picture and will Cat woman be able to save herself from a threat from the past and keep her heart intact . 

    I have always loved the character of Cat Woman , she has intrigued me and I must say that this character is well written and complex. Selina is so complex she has come through so much and she is tough and well really kind of snarky . She doesn't let anyone or anything put her down .  There is actually a sadness to her also, you know all she wants is love and to be loved . She has been pushed into the life she had all to protect her younger sister and get her the medical help she needed .  You will actually care for Selina when you read her back story and cheer for her through out the book . Now lets talk Luke aka Bat Wing . He is cool and sexy and probably the only super hero that can keep Gotham safe but really we don't get to get to know him. He is basically put in there for a love interest for Selina . He is sexy and sweet and yes you will swoon but I wish we got to get to know him a little more .  Over all I did love these characters and yes I even loved Harley Quin and Poison Ivy as Selina's friends and confidantes . 

     I was so excited when I got this book in a book box I ordered . I have always loved super hero stories but I am truly a villain girl at heart . I love Cat Woman so much , she has always had a place in my heart. The author takes her story and ramps it up ten fold . She takes us on such an emotional roller coaster ride.  I was sucked in by page 10 ,  I cried and laughed all the way through this book .   So if you want a great story that will captivate you and keep you reading check it out . I can't wait to dive into the other books in the series . So if you are a comic fan check out the book you will not be disappointed . Add this book to your summer reading list .

Harry Moon had his suspicions from the get-go. But when the massive snow sculpture springs to life and begins an evil rampage through town, it’s Mayor Kligore who asks Harry for help. It all comes down to a mano a mano battle between Harry and Sleepy Hollow’s newest villain, Lazarus. This is a battle Harry must win or Sleepy Hollow will be destroyed under the crushing hoofs of the Headless Horseman.


                          MY REVIEW

OK ITS WEDNESDAY

  Ok its hot and windy out and its only Wednesday . I hope that your Wednesday is going a lot better . I have a sweet novella for you today from Savannah Verte and her book IMPOSSIBELLA ( a flip flopped fairy tale . )

                       BOOK BLURB

   
Bippity…Boppity…Balance.

We all know how Cinderella went to the ball, met her prince, lost a shoe, and got her happily ever after...but did you know that for such a magical thing to occur the universe demands a price? As a matter of fact, an equal measure in return.

Isabella Beaufort was born at the top of the social food chain. She had everything, including being promised to Prince Christopher, until the ill-fated ball where he met Cinderella. Follow along as we learn about the other side of the rags to riches story we all know, and the price of pissing off a fairy godmother.

                       MY REVIEW 
    What do you do when you are the fairy godmother of the young girl that is born at the top of the food chain. A princess , a spoiled princess to be totally honest . Flora is the godmother to Isabella . The child is beautiful but also very spoiled and there is nothing she can do about it but try and guide her to be a better person.  Her sister Fern gets to be the godmother to an adorable little girl Ariella , who has a hard life after loosing her mother in child birth. Each girl is totally different from each other but their paths are going to cross on their eighteenth birthday .  Now we will know the rest of the story of Cinderella . 
   
  What a way to twist up the tale of Cinderella . The fairy godmothers are both hilarious and oh so funny . They both want to help their charges but alas they can't . They get so frustrated and that's when the fun begins for them. I really loved Fern and Flora they will have you laughing from the very beginning . Now lets talk princess's Isabella is so spoiled you really want to just turn her over your knee and spank her . She is whiny and thinks she can have anything and everything, even prince Christopher Ariella is as sweet as sweet can be even though she has a hard life she is just a lovely girl . When her life gets even more desperate she discovers the back bone that she had all along and stands up for what she wants, even if it the prince . I truly loved each and every character in this book, they are well written and have a depth to them .

    I found this book through a friend and i was really glad i got it . The characters are well written and hilarious, the story is fun and it is an easy read . The author takes us on a fun filled ride with a fairy tale that is flipped on its side . It is great to see the story from another perspective , that of the fairy godmothers . This would be a great read for your summer beach reads . It is short and sweet and you will enjoy each and every page . Check it out even your tweens would get a kick out of it

GOOD MONDAY ALL

 Welcome back to Monday made it through the weekend and now I am hiding in an air conditioned house while the temps soar to the high 90s , no spring for this girl went from winter to summer . Ok enough complaining . Today I have a brand new indie author and her really hot erotic space book  ROCKET MAN ( Sci fi Alien erotic romance ) by Joy Foster.

                            BOOK BLURB 

   
One of America's most famous events to happen was when we landed two men on the moon. Now, let's put a beautiful woman, and a delicious man in the mix instead and you are only starting to get the idea of this erotic sci-fi space romance. Just when you think there can't be any sexier more erotic things happening, that is when Stone and Galena, two space pirates abduct them and intend to sell them as sex slaves on their home planet. This is a page turner for sure!

If you are brave enough to try an indie book then let me thank you in advance!


                       MY REVIEW 
   Welcome to the next great space adventure . What do you think would happen when you put a beautiful woman and a oh so sexy man both astronauts on a space ship that is heading out on a deep space voyage. Astronauts Kate and Ryan on a trip that will take them to the outer reaches of space . But they are harbouring a secret that could of grounded them from the project .  As they travel through space they are well abducted by some space aliens . Galena and Stone well lets just say he is as tall as he is well you can get the idea . When they decide to have some fun before taking Kate and Ryan back with them . Everything is turned on its head and the real fun starts . 
   
   The characters in Rocket Man are very well written . Kate well she is a hard working woman you would love to be friends with but also she would take you down with just a look . Ryan is well he is the alpha man that well you want to climb him like a spider monkey through out the book . He is a man's man and knows what he wants and that person is Kate . They are so hot together . They get even hotter when Galena and Stone come aboard . Now if you thought Ryan is hot . Stone is on fire, he is the one you will want to swing from the rafters with . He is very talented and you know the saying hung like a horse well that describes Stone to a tee . Galena is also a woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it . I really liked these characters and when they all get together they are on fire. 

    I started reading this book with no preconceived notions . This author is a new indie author so I decided to give her a try. I was not disappointed , there were times in this book I was blushing really bad. Other times I was fanning myself cause I seriously think my kindle was on fire . This is a fun filled romp with lots of steamy times and some actual romance too . The characters are well written and you will fall in love with all of them or let me rephrase that you will fall in lust with them . I honestly never knew that space could be so steamy . The author puts in some really great twists and turns . You really don't know if the alien pirates are good or bad but you will love the antics they get up to with the two astronauts . This is a book that you should put on your reading list for your summer . It is a hot little book that will have you heating up in the shade .

Welcome to Wednesday

  You know you have too many books when you realize that you have a book that has been sitting in your tbr pile that you actually forgot about . Well that happened to me with this book . I had picked this book up awhile ago and was going to dive right into it well it got pushed to the side and I forgot about it . I feel like a dork cause I dived into the book and read it in one night . That book is BETRAYAL (Infidelity #1 ) by Aleatha Romig .

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
One week. No future. No past. No more.

Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive--he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants, and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic contemporary romance will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha'd?

BETRAYAL is a full-length novel and the first of five in the INFIDELITY series.

This series isn't about cheating.

                        MY REVIEW 
 What would you do if you were offered a week to live carefree, no worries just fun and pleasure with a man who is sexy and is oh so built for sin. When they see each other Nox offers her the time of her life . But the only rule is for one week. Alas when it comes to affairs of the heart and soul things don't always go as planned . Will they come out with their hearts intacted or will they break the rules to have a life together .

   Ladies grab your fans and start fanning yourself . Let me introduce you to Lennox , Nox Demetri , man he is oh so sexy and i will say ladies he is so built for sin. He is confident, wealthy and know what he wants .  There are moments you want to slap him and the next moment you want to climb him like a spider monkey . 

  Alexandra well she is the type of character you really just want to wrap up in a blanket and hug tight . She has her naive moments but when she runs into Nox , things really change and we watch her grow, she does start to get a back bone until she ends up with her parents house . Then we see a whole new Alexandra/ Charli,. These are good characters on their own but when they are together they are really great . I loved them as a couple . 

  Ok like I admited earlier I forgot I had this book and when i found it I was like wow I forgot about it . So I sat down and started reading , yes i read well into the night . I couldn't put the book down. Ther characters had me captivated , I truly liked both of them . The story had me turning pages all night long . This story has it all , rage , happiness , hopefulliness and yet you feel hopeless in some parts of the story. There is romance and oh so many good smexy times .  You will laugh, cry and throw your kindle . Don't throw your kindle ladies or you won't get to finish the story , The author takes us on an emotional roller coaster ride that will keep you reading all night long . This would be a great little read for your summer reading challenge. Great book to read at the beach

WELL IT IS MONDAY

   Good Monday all, today I have a new book from one of my favourite authors . BLOOD FOR THE DANCER  by Dallas Mullican .


                           BOOK BLURB 

 

Join an adventure through Heaven and Hell in the first thrilling volume of Dallas Mullican’s fantasy epic- The Horde and the Host Trilogy.

BLOOD FOR THE DANCER

Dying and trapped in pain, Dustan Wheaton cries out to Heaven… but it’s a demon who answers.

Salvation comes at a price. Dustan must become the demons’ most deadly assassin, slaying angels on earth before they can recruit mortal souls into a war that has raged for eons.

With the demons fanning his hatred, Dustan is eager to kill those he blames for ignoring his prayers and allowing his parents to die. He travels the world destroying his angelic enemies until sent to face a mysterious woman.

The Dancer is unlike any foe Dustan has encountered. He finds himself inexplicably drawn to her, and for the first time, he questions his orders. Her claim that his entire life has been a lie threatens to shatter lifelong beliefs and sows doubts about his demon family.

Trusting this woman will mean turning his back on those who saved him and gave his life purpose, not to mention place a target on his back for angels and demons alike. Doubting her could mean the end of all humankind.

                             MY REVIEW 
    Ok taking a deep breath is what you need to do when you dive into this book . What would you do if you prayed to the heavens for help for someone you love and the one that answers is a demon . But what he didn't know is that the salvation he needed comes with a heavy price . When they want him to become the demons most deadliest assasin . Which he does for eons until the one that he was sent to kill might be the one that will offer him the salvation that he needs to break free . When he puts his trust in her it  means turning his back on angels and demons but also doubting her could mean the end of all things . 

    Ok I loved the main characters in this book . Dustan a young man who is basically living in poverty with his mother , in London in 1862 . He is yout typical kid trying to survive . We see a spark in him that has him catch the eye a demon . He is a strong boy that grows into a very strong man . How can we explain him but as an assassin that follows what he has been taught . I like that the author had him rethinking his past life and the reasons why he is doing what he is doing . 

  Kyra is first an angel but she is also the one person that can turn Dustan . She is a warrior and when you first meet her she is fighting for her life . She is strong but also kind and she can fight like a man . I really like her she is such a fearless character.  There ar so many great characters in this book  too many great characters to mention which are all so well written and complex , you will all have your own that you will love . 

     This story had me by the end of chapter one . This is an action packed ride of emotion that will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through the book . The characters are so well written and complex , you really don't know if you should love them or hate them . This book starts in the 1860s up to modern day and it flows so well . The author has a way of writing that has you thinking as you read . I know i loved his detective novels but I seriously think that this could be my new go to series . Ah but you are going to say hey it is about Angels and Demons , how can you make that new and fresh. Well I think the author has done that very well . It is an intelligent well written story and the author does it with a flair that only he can do. So if you want an intelligent well written story of with the world of angels and demons and the ultimate redemption . This is the story for you add it to your summer reading list . I promise you , you will not be disapointed at all .

WOOHOOO IT IS FRIDAY

Welcome to Friday , today I have the third book in the Paragon Trilogy . HEROE by Bree Lewandowski


                           BOOK BLURB 



The war rages on, but it must end. 
Meridionalis lies in ruin, but the royal city must not fall. 
The question "why" remains and answers must be found. 
Destruction and bloodshed follow the Rubiconds as their rampage continues. The royal city of Geneva is the only stronghold that remains. But it, too, will be annihilated if a compromise is not reached. 
Sailing to the land of Rubra, Kohl, Saya, Linah, and Abra seek out the dictative emperor to beg for mercy on their lands and an end to the fighting.
Failing, orders demand the men return prepared for combat, leaving their wives to be escorted to safety. 
Until a secret letter finds its way to Abra revealing the true cause of the war. 
Taking matters into their own hands, the women band together, armed with the insightful knowledge that swords and blood-spilling are not what will bring the war's end. Time is fleeting, but the women's stamina to complete their mission endures.
Fate's a funny thing, but can be altered with a woman's touch. 
Secrets are revealed, solutions are presented, and promises are kept in this final chapter of the saga!  

                       
                  MY REVIEW 
  War is raging and the Meridonilas is lying in ruin as Kohl, Saya, Abra and Linah are heading to the island of Rubra to plead for the people of Meridonilas . But the men are called back to help defend the capital city and the women take matters into their own hands and band together to do a mission that will take them to places unknown . Secrets will be revealed and solutions will be put in place and the couples will have their happily ever after 

   The characters just keep getting better and in the last episode , you really get to see what Linah and Abra can do . They come out strong and resilient. They take on lots of different people and problems which they fight head on . The guys Kohl and Saya are battling their own demons saving the capital . I must say the character really became complex and are so well written . They are a really strong team this time . I really liked the characters in the past two book but in this book I truly fell in love with all of them . 

    The last book in the trilogy I believe is one of the better written books . The author has us on the edge of our seats the whole time . The twists and turns in this book are great . You will not put the book down until you are finished . There is a lot of action in this one .  I truly got lost in the story and loved the characters . So if you want a great series for the summer reading challenge . Add this series .

Buy Sweet Attraction today to start the sweet small-town romance series today!
                        MY REVIEW 
  What do you do when you want to get out from the people that have labeled you . Lydia Mason just wants to break out from under her mother who is the mayor of the small town where they live .  Ethan was born on the wrong side of the tracks basically . No one in town wanted to associate with them . All he wanted to do come back and prove to everyone that he was much more then the poor kid from the outskirts . They will soon learn that the place they are trying to run away from is the exact place they need to be . 

      The characters in this story are well written . Ethan is well he is the kid that just wanted more out of his life . He is tall and sexy and can charm you right out of anything . But deep down inside though he is still the kid from the outskirts that just really wants to belong . Lydia is a little naïve because she has been living under her mother's shadow for her whole life . She just wants to get away and become her own person . As you dive into the book we see that Lydia actually grows and blossoms as the story goes along . She really comes into her own . She can really make Ethan think about what it means to be part of Sweet Blossom . 
   This is a sweet read and you get to see the characters fall in love slowly . The author has a knack of taking characters and letting them just fall in love naturally . This book can hit home for anyone who has wanted to get out from their past . It is  a fast read that would be great for an afternoon for the beach or pool side . So if you want a sweet read for your summer reading list check it out .

When a spell is cast on Saya he must  reach out to Kohl to help reverse it . The stakes are high and love is the prize . 

  I must say the characters in this story are well written . Saya well he will be your next book boyfriend . He is sexy and a cad . He can make you do almost anything .Abra is sweet and kind of naïve at the beginning of the book . She hasn't had an easy life and doesn't have a lot experience with men . But they are so good together and I loved them as a couple . Kohl is back to help out . 

   This is a fast read , I sat down and started reading . The characters are great and you will love them . The banter between them is so good it feels so real . In this book the author keeps us on the edge of our seats most of the time . It is a little be more intense then book one and you learn a lot more about the characters and the background of the impending war . I will say at the beginning it took me a little bit to get into Abra's story but once I got to chapter 2 it took off and I couldn't put it down . I say that you should put this series on your summer reading list . Great for the beach .

HAPPY RELEASE DAY ALEATHA

 Yes I know I am late today but I have ha    d a busy day on the farm . Foal born and garden planting . Today is release day for Aleatha Romig 's new book TWISTED ( Tangled web book one )


                            BOOK BLURB 

   
 
The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.
While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give my life..
That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.
Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost.
And then I saw her.
Laurel Carlson.
I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.
My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence.
None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer.
I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.
This time, will the price be too high?

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web.

TWISTED is book one of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which will continue in OBSESSED and conclude in BOUND.
Have you been Aleatha’d?
                         MY REVIEW 
  What do you do when the underworld and the world of science comes crashing into each other . Kader is on the job to stop the trials of the drug she and her lab partner are working on. But when he sees Laurel he has a change of mind and tries to save her .  Will they be able to come together and find out who wants the research and to end her life . 
    
  Wow is all I can say about these characters . They are complex and oh so well written . Kader well he is oh so sexy and such and alpha , but you can feel that there is a pain that he hides and there is so much more to him then meets the eye . He thinks he is broken and ladies trust me you will want to fix him over and over and over again . Laurel well she is sweet and honestly she is not one for the lime light . She would rather work then hob nob with potential investors .  I truly liked her and the combination of sweet but with a spine of steel . They are great characters and are so engrossing and when they are together the sparks fly. 
  
   Well I couldn't put this book down , I couldn't put the book down . The author takes us on such a roller coaster ride . I was on the edge of my seat the whole time . I couldn't put the book down . I needed to know what Kader was going to do and you really want to wrap Laurel up in a blanket and tell her that everything will be ok.  There is a lot more intrigue and mystery to this story . A little change for the author and she does it very well . I can't wait for book 2 in the series .  So add this series to your e reader for your summer reading list . You will not be disappointed one bit

ITS MERMAID DAY TODAY

Welcome to MERMAID Monday . Today I have another great book from the always funny Robyn Peterman and her fourth book in the Sea Shenanigans series  MADISON'S MESS


                                    BOOK BLURB 


What could possibly go wrong when a Mermaid and a Werewolf are sent on a dangerous mission by the drunken, diaper-wearing God of the Sea?

Better question. What could possibly go right?

Madison
Unlike my sisters, I haven’t found my HEA. And I’m looking—hard. But finding a man who wants to blowhole dive in Hawaii on the first date is more difficult than you might imagine. I’ve been forced to settle for a few meaningless orgasms with men who disappear when I suggest fun activities, like scaling twenty stories while blindfolded.

Look, I know meaningless nookie won’t help me find my happily ever after, or even a guy who believes tightrope handstands over the Grand Canyon are fun. But there is someone out there for me so next time I do the horizontal mambo, it’s for keeps.

May the gods help me. Well, me and whoever I boink next.

Rick
Being a Vegan Werewolf has its drawbacks. I’ve been exiled from my pack and even the petting zoo of deer, rabbits and raccoons I keep safely tucked away from my fellow Weres isn’t enough to banish the loneliness I feel. Talking to myself is becoming dangerous. Just two days ago out of stupefying boredom, I made a wager with myself that I could fly. It didn’t end well.

Thankfully Poseidon is sending me on a mission. Unfortunately, it’s with a crazy Mermaid who has a worse reputation for death defying recreation than me.

I have no clue what’s in store, but may the gods help me. Well, me and this swimming hottie, because I’m totally down.

                         MY REVIEW 
   Life on the island is ok for Madison but she wants more . She wants to go on epic but deadly adventures . Where there are more risks and dangers the better . But alas island life is anything but adventerous . Until Posiden gives her a mission that will defy all things . Rick is offered the same mission and can't wait to start . They are a pair meant to be together . Will the mission keep them on track or will their love of danger keep them from fulfilling the mission . 
    OMG  I will say this these characters are hilarious and written so well. Madison well she is the daredevil of the sisters . She would love to go skydiving without a parachute or go blow hole diving . She is sassy and sarcastic and funny as all heck . She is someone you really want to be friends with cause you would be the sane one of the pack . Now Rick what can we say about a sexy werewolf , well there is one thing he is also an andrenaline junkie who is also vegan . Yes i said vegan , yeah yeah yeah I know you are thinking what the heck a vegan werewolf .  He matches the craziness of Madison so well . He has the sex appeal and all the death defying antics that would make any woman swoon . Trust me these characters are so fun to read . They so belong together. We also meet a couple of new characters Neville i so want my own Neville . He is a sweet not so human baby that actually steals the show through out the book . I totally adore all the characters in this story . 
    This book had me laughing so hard all the way through . This story is has it all , sexy mermaids and werwolves a baby to protect oh and a few well timed stabbings in the butt for upsetting said baby. Like  I said it had it all, you will laugh so hard tears will be rolling down your cheeks . This book is a fun fast read that will keep you entertained for an afternoon . You get to be taken away for awhile and loose yourself in the pages of a good story . I would definetly add this book to your summer reading list . Enjoy this book by the pool or at the beach and fall in love with a mermaid and a vegan werewolf. You won't be disappointed .

HAPPY SATURDAY ALL

 Well it is Saturday and it is cold and dreary out on the farm today so its a really good day to curl up and read . I have a good book for your weekend reading CHEVALIER ( The Paragon Trilogy book one ) by Bree M Lewandoski.

                          BOOK BLURB 

 
Linah Morane, a well-known woman of Meridionalis has been scorned and taunted her entire life due to her abnormalities. After the humiliation of being abandoned at the altar, she humbly accepts the unexpected marriage proposal to the King's Vizier, Kohl. Her heart still fluttered each time she fondly remembered their first and only dance together.
The depth in her eyes was emphasized by the rare hue of cerulean that peered into his soul. Those eyes had stopped the very beating of Kohl's heart. He had fallen in love with her that very moment. Over the years, her poise and grace to overcome the whisperings were admirable on a royal level. Then fate arrived and Kohl lept at the opportunity to have Linah as his bride.
Seeking safety for his wife after learning of impending war, they journey through the forests and mountain caves until Kohl is mortally wounded.  Linah turns to the Nightingale Queen and her gift of healing for help, but is unaware of the damaged past the Nightingale Queen and her husband share.
Secrets are exposed and loyalties shift in this thrilling tale of love and war!


                             MY REVIEW 
    When LInah Morane is left at the alter on her wedding day . She humbly accepts the marriage proposal from Kohl the kings Vizier. She rememebers the one time they danced together . Kohl had fallen in love with her with that one dance. Over the years he has watched and fallen for her over and over . Her poise and grace were something of beauty and that alone over came the whispers of the court Then fate arrived and Kohl had the woman of his dreams . But there is war coming to the kingdom and together they must over come a lot . When LInah turns to the Nighingale Queen . She doesn't know the  past the two share . 

  The characters in this book are so well written and complex. Linah has carried herself quite well even though she has a few deformities . But with Kohl she feels beautiful and wanted .  First off she comes off naive but as you see her through out the book she really grows strong and actually blossoms through out the book . Kohl well he is more then just the Vizier . He is sweet and oh so sexy but there is also a paranormal element to him that makes him stronger and faster then most people .  He is the kind of guy you want to have your back when push comes to shove . I mean he does have his flaws though like sending his bride to a spot where she coudl be attacked by incoming enemy troops but all is good . The characters are great on their own but together they are pretty awesome . There are a few characters that they meet and either help them or try and kill them a time or two

    I sat down and started reading this book in the evening, I couldn't put it down . Its a fun little read that will have you reading until you are done . There is a rollercoaster ride of emotions that go on while you read this book.  You will have to laugh and wipe a tear away . There is just one thing I wish it was just a little longer to really get into the characters and the story . Over all i really enjoyed this story and  I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series . So if you want a great fantasy book that  you can read in an afternoon poolside  I say put this one on your summer reading list .

WELCOME TO FRIDAY

Welcome to Friday and I have the second book in Daughters of the Moon series . ARAPHEL by Matthew S Cox .

                            BOOK BLURB 

   
Sometimes, the best thing a girl has to look forward to is killing someone.

When she learned the truth behind her father’s death, Risa Black thought she’d given up on revenge. After an unknown enemy takes the life of someone dear to her, revenge is all that keeps her going. While hunting for the assassins, she uncovers a web of espionage and deceit that destroys her sense of everything she knew. Her idealism tarnished, her drive to free Mars from Earth gives way to something more personal: the need to protect a child.

It soon becomes clear she’s in over her head. Consumed by the sorrow of loss, she accepts a mission from the Martian Liberation Front, not caring it’s a one-way ticket. Desperate to uncover the truth hidden behind all the lies, she hopes to find answers in a place that should not exist: Araphel.

The home of the angel Raziel.


                            MY REVIEW 
      When you loose someone dear to you what do you do . Revenge is all that Risa Black can think of. Risa is all about trying to find out the assassins that killed her dear friend . But when a child becomes involved all her revenge goes to the way side and all she can think about is protecting this child . Then the assignment comes up that she does because she is over come and isn't thinking right . All she wants is answers but she might not find them but it could cost her, her life . 

    The characters in the second book are most definitely getting more and more complex. Risa has lost it all in the first book and we see that at the beginning of this book . She is lost and ready do dangerous things . Its like she has given up . Then we see her grow a bit after she finds Kree . She goes into protective mode and will do almost anything to keep her safe .She is like a fighting machine ready to take down anyone that come anywhere near the child .  She is getting stronger and stronger towards the end of the book . She is just a fighting machine.  Kree is well she is a sweet child that is hiding something horrible . She clings to Risa and doesn't want to let her go . I just wanted to wrap her up and hug her tight and tell her everything will be ok .  We also get introduced to Saris and Chaia . They are so fun to read .   I truly love all these characters they really grow on you, 

   I will say when I sat down to read this book I was wondering how Risa was going to take the death of her friend . The author picked up where the first book left off and it took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. There were parts of the book where I was just wanting to take all the characters and wrap them up in fuzzy blankets and hug them all tight and tell them life will be ok .  This was a faster read then in book one . There is a lot more action and it will hold your attention all the way through. I will just tell you to do up your seat belt when you start reading this book cause it will blow you away . I was on the edge of my seat most of the time through out this book . So if you like sci fi with a dash of cyber punk check out this series for your summer reading list
