HAPPY RELEASE DAY

Good Wednesday all today is new release day for N.L Hoffmann and her spin off book LUCIFER .

                          BOOK BLURB 


*Spin-off from The Daughters of Darkness series.*

Lucifer wishes his brother, Aden…whose name you can't say in vain…would stop trying to change him. He wants to do something about it, to prove himself, but what can the devil possibly do to make the world a better place? After being told he must perform at least one good deed every five hundred years, Lucifer pairs up with a young artist to find the Book of Souls and return it to Hell.

Because of her ability to touch someone and see into their soul, Maye decides to keep herself hidden from the world. Being an introvert is acceptable for an artist, right? But when she buys an easel and a plain, wooden box, her whole life changes.

The devil is the embodiment of evil, but when he meets Maye, the past hits him in ways that should not be possible. Over the centuries, he’s built an impenetrable wall around his heart, but piece by piece, it’s started to crumble, allowing old emotions to seep through.

As Lucifer and Maye work to find the book, they begin to question their own strengths. Question whether they can defend the world. All the while, they must battle their feelings for each other, hoping to avoid the idea that fate might just have different plans for them.

Can they succeed and save humanity? Or will destiny intervene and force two opposites together, unwittingly releasing chaos into the world?

                              MY REVIEW 
  What Lucifer wants is to have his brother Aden would stop trying to change him . He is the devil for crimneys sake he wants to prove that he can do something to make the world a better place but what . Until the moment he is paired up with a beautiful young artist to save the world .  The Book of the Dead is stolen and they have to get it back to hell before it destroys the world . They realize there is more to them then meets the eye . They start to second guess their strengths and weakness. Will they be able to save the world and keep their hearts intact as well . 

    Ok lets talk Lucifer the main character in this story , I love the way he is written . It is refreshing to see him as a fun loving kind of character . Yes he is still arrogant and self absorbed but he is also funny . He runs around in bedazzled speedo. He is sexy as sin and yes you would like to climb him like a spider monkey but there is a side to him that will have you wanting to hug him and hold him tight . The author also shows his softer side and I truly like that side of him .  Maye well she is feisty and sweet, she doesn't let anyone or anything stand in her way . There is so much more to her then meets the eye . She is special and you will love her . Aden well he is God and man he is funny , watching him try and keep everyone in line . He does have some good one liners .  Oh just wait there is more  Anubis and Anput . They seem to be running amuck . Anput is well she is a b with and itch and wants to wreak havoc on the world . Anubis is well he is trying to stop her and also keep his daughter safe . 

   Ok I will admit i kind of squealed when i found out the author has written a spin off to the Daughter of Darkness series . So I grabbed it and sat down and started reading . I couldn't put it down or get the image of Lucifer in speedos out of my mind .  The characters are so well written and so funny . Trust me you will snort and laugh out loud .  The story is sweet and sexy . You will love it so if you want a funny book for the summer reading by the pool this is the one for you .

GOOD MONDAY ALL

 Well it is the start of another hot work week here on the farm . I hope you all had a great weekend . Today I have a book for you that had me in tears through out it . This author usually doesn't evoke tears from me , maybe a little rage when he kills off a character I like but this book had me in tears . THE MUSIC OF MIDNIGHT  by Dallas Mullican .

                           BOOK BLURB 

   
"Existential and profound, dark and beautiful, 'The Music of Midnight' is a tour-de-force." The Black and White Monthly

THE MUSIC OF MIDNIGHT

Born of guilt and grief, a colossal tower rises from the ruins of Andy Cates shattered mind.

He is the sole captive of a prison filled with countless rooms housing the memories of his life. Hoping answers and escape hide within, he investigates the rooms, moving ever upward toward the tower’s pinnacle. Across each threshold, scenes from his past are revealed. As he pieces experiences together, Andy discovers every observed event set another of his prison’s stones into place.

Stumbling room to room, plagued by horrific dreams and poignant memories, Andy longs to reclaim his life and attain a second chance at happiness and fulfillment. The path to escape will bring him face to face with his demons. The enigma of his prison is not easily solved. The tower wants to keep him…forever.

                        MY REVIEW 
   This book surprised me, Andy a young man who has been through so much in his life . Knowing that his mother died giving birth to him and his father trying to make him into something he doesn't want to be .  As he tries and work through his grief and guilt a colossal tower builds in his mind . That has been shattered , he is trying to work through the memories of his life . Wanting to put his life back together and have a second chance at happiness . The path to his forgiveness with bring him fact to face with his demons . Will he be able to come out the other end a happy and whole man or will the fortress of his demons keep him captive forever . 

     Ok I am going to say that the main characters Andy and Darren are written so well and they are both complex . Andy is a quiet musician who is on his way to Julliard . He is hiding a life of guilt that he survived and his mother died giving birth to him . He craves for his dads love , and wants to succeed to get that love . Darren is a funny, lovable oaf , who even though is bullied through out the book, is always smiling and cracking jokes . He loves to read and he is also hiding a big secret . One that according to his mother would send him to hell . They go through so much through high school but always seem to be there for each other . There are so many other characters that are important in Andy's story . The stranger is a figment trying to keep Andy in his tower . Taking him from room to room sometimes taunting Andy . All the characters from his father to Travis are so well written and they all add a layer to Andy's story . 

    I must say that this author blew me away with this book . I truly enjoyed his other books and this book is a little departure from his other books . The author really dug down deep in his soul to bring us the story of Andy . You just want to make sure that Andy is safe and loved from the very first page he is introduced . I couldn't put this book down I read it in a weekend . The twists and turns had me on the edge of me seat the whole time . I so wanted to save Andy and Darren . I mean what poor Darren had to endure and then what happened to him had me ugly crying cause you know that there are people struggling out there .  There were moments that you just want to wrap Andy up in a warm blanket and hug him tight and tell him that life will be ok.  I love that the author questions religion and what it means to be a good person . This is a gut wrenching read that will have you reading the day away . So if you want a book that will keep you up and have you rethinking the values of life for you today . This is the summer book for you .

WELCOME TO WEEKEND

 Well its Saturday all and its hot and humid outside . Today I have a sweet historical romance for you . THE BANKERS BRIDE ( Book 5 in the Whiskey River series ) by Theresa Oliver

                            BOOK BLURB 



She’s lost everything and wants a new start. He can’t let go of his past… until he meets her. Although both are strong-willed, can they bend their will to the other and let go of the past to let love in?

Megan Shannon is no stranger to struggle. Having lost everything and everyone she ever held dear, she set out from her beloved Ireland to seek a new life in America. When her thirst for a new life lands her in the untamed frontier of Whiskey River, she finds that a free spirit has no merit in her new husband’s home. Emboldened by her desire to be her own woman, Megan clashes against the powerful men who would see her demure and silent.

For Dallas King, Whiskey River is not a safe haven for the bold and the brave, but rather a chance to rise as a powerful man of society. Having left behind a dark and twisted childhood, Dallas sets out to become the man his father wasn’t. In the pursuit of his narrow dream, Dallas finds himself at odds with the beautiful woman he has called to the frontier to be his wife.

An epic battle ensues between what one wants and what one expects as danger lurks close by. Will Megan and Dallas come to terms with their troubled pasts in pursuit of a perfect future? Or does Whiskey River have something entirely different in store for them?

In a battle of wills and wit, danger and desire take the reins as we return to the untamed banks of Whiskey River in The Banker’s Bride.

                             MY REVIEW 
  When Megan lost her brother to a senseless fight in the street . She has nothing left, she has know her share of struggles and wants to be her own woman. She has no choice but to answer an ad for a bride . She heads out to Whiskey River to be the bride for Dallas King the banker . Dallas King who is the banker who is fighting a few demons of his past . Will they be able to come to terms with their past and will they open themselves up to love . 

    The characters are well written and complex , I truly loved the characters in this story . Megan is a sweet Irish girl who has been put through so much . She is sassy and can take care of herself . She is also sweet and trying to keep her heart from getting hurt . She wants to be her own woman but also wants to take care of those that she loves .  Dallas is making a good life for himself on the frontier . He is a good man who is hiding a secret to his past . He has taken it upon himself to have a narrow view on how to be a gentleman. He is sweet and kind with Megan and tough as nails when it comes to protecting her . When something happens to Megan he has a total change of heart and he opens his heart up to all that are around him .  I really like them and Megan i love her feistiness and her love of all things . Dallas one moment you want to hug him and the next minute you really want to hit him with a frying pan. Together they play off each other great . 

     This is the first time I sat down and read a sweet historical romance and I was hooked . The characters were well written and the story moved really fast . I love the old west and when you throw in romance and gun fights and you have a winner . The author takes us on an epic adventure . I know this is the fifth book in the series but I read it and wasn't lost at all . I am sure you could read it as a stand alone  if you wanted to. This would be a great read for the campsite or the beach . You will love them as much as I do . So if you want a sweet western check them out

WOOHOO ITS FRIDAY

 Woohooo made it to Friday , the weekend is upon us , today I have a updated book from Linda Thomas - Sundstrom . GOLDEN VAMPIRE (blood knight book 1)

                           BOOK BLURB 

  
The Dark Surrender... is the ultimate embrace of everlasting love that can exist between immortals.

Former cop Jesse Stewart, hired by a foreign government to find a senator's missing daughter, finds much more instead -- a centuries old immortal, and a haunting piece of her past.

Once a famous knight, Lance Van Baaren still adheres to an original quest, and has sworn to protect the innocent. But can he allow Jessie solve her case when it means discovering the truth of her past, and what connects them?

                         MY REVIEW 
   When Jesse sees this man running in the field , there is a pull towards him that she can't deny . When she is hired to find a senators daughter , she finds more then she bargained for. She finds a piece of herself and her past but will they survive the mission and will they be able to connect with each other and the past that connects them . 

   I must say I truly like these characters , they are well written and complex .  Jesse is a tough as nails ex cop . She doesn't let anyone push her around she likes to take charge . There is a soft side to her that she wrestles with through out the book . Lance brings that out of her . She is a great herione . No nonsense and straight forward and kind of sassy . 
 Lance well besides being immortal , he is sexy and all alpha . There is more to him, he is a knight that is on a quest that will keep him going .  Ladies you will like him , you will want to hug him or climb him like a spider monkey . They are great characters on their own but when they come together they are explosive .  
  Stan ,Jesses' helicopter pilot will keep you in stitches , he is a great side kick for Jesse. They play off of each other and you will giggle at some of his antics 

     This book had me hooked by the second chapter . There is a real gothic feel to this book and there is some dark intense stuff going on . The characters are awesomely well written and complex . You will love them . There are twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat most of the time . There is also some romantic sexy times that could over heat your kindle just a little . I love reading this author , she writes intelligent romance novels . She will take you on an adventure ride that will leave you breathless and wanting more . So if you want a book that will take you away and let you fall in love with the characters . Check out this book , I would say this is a great read for beside the pool or at the beach . So add it to your summer reading list .

WELCOME TO THURSDAY

   Welcome to Thursday or as I like to call it Friday eve .  Today I have a new book  PLANET SEEKERS , TEAM ALPHA by Tonya Cannariato


                           BOOK BLURB 

  
Escaping Earth is only step one.

Dr. Marina Spitzer, botanist extraordinaire, is on a mission to save humanity—which is faltering on the edge of extinction after the nuclear fallout of WWIII decimated half of the Earth.

If she can work with the small team of space explorers searching for a new home for the survivors, she’ll have helped ensure her nieces and nephews are able to have a future.

Geologist Dr. Leonardo Federici is no less ambitious, even if his chosen field makes Rina suspect he has rocks rolling through his head. Especially once he makes it clear that he’s attracted to her—physically, intellectually, and emotionally.

But the team only has three days on TaoRuti 3 to determine whether to recommend the planet for colonization. There’s no time for emotional distractions as planetary instabilities catch everyone off-guard, with fatal results.

If they can survive this mission, Rina might have a future with Leo, but first they have to weather a planet that’s fighting dirty.

                         MY REVIEW 
     After WW3 destroys the planet a team is sent out to space to find a planet that can sustain human life . Dr Marrina Spitzer is part of that team along with  Dr. Leonardo Fedeici . They are sent to find a new world . Will Rina be able to work with Leon without her heart getting hurt and will they find a world that can save their families.

   The characters are well written and complex. The main characters Rina and Leon are complext . Rina is a strong independant woman who is a well respected botanist who is willing to do almost anything to help her family . She is strongwilled and kind a sassy and a hard worker . I truly liked her character , she kicks some butt and puts the men in their place a few times .  Leon is a smart man a very smart man . and girls the geek like scientist is really hot . He is attracted to Rina and does everything to get her into his arms . I liked him he was a good guy who didn't come off as a cad . They are strong characters but together they make a great team 

    When I sat down to read this book I didn't really know where the author was going to take me .  I was pleasently surprised  I was hooked from the second chapter . There are twists and turns that had me trying to figure out if they are going to survive . Will they find a planet to live .  The characters are well written and you will cheer for them . This is a fast read that will have you on the edge of your seat most of time . There are some romantic times but over all we have a mission to find a new earth . This could be a good book for your summer reading list . Check it out

WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY

  Well it is Wednesday and I have a new release from one of my all time favourite authors  BEWITCH ME  by Marianne Morea .

                              BOOK BLURB 


Gareth?
In the flesh, love.
But…you’re dead.
Ah, well. There’s dead and then there’s dead-dead.

Lane Alden stared at the man she once loved. The same man she mourned and never really got over. Yet here he stood, outside the infamous backrooms of the Red Veil, the underground vampire club where blood and sex rule, and anything goes.But anything goes was a distraction she didn’t need. Especially not one that made her mouth water and her nether bits throb. She had a witch to find. A sister witch who went missing after taking a walk on the wild side. Finding a Dark Fae may have played a role in her friend’s disappearance, she can only wonder if the man she loved and lost was back in her life for the same reason. Coincidence? Not a chance.

                          MY REVIEW 
 
     Holy welcome back to the Red Veil , Where your wildest dreams may come true .  Laney and her best friend Eve decide to head to the infamous Red Veil for a night of fun. When  Laney tries to find her friend in the back rooms , she runs into the man that she thought was long dead , she mourned for him but there he was .  Gareth the man who stole her heart and still has her heart . He is there to help her get her friend back . Will they survive heading to the land of Fae and will they be able to keep their hearts intact and keep their love strong..

    This book has it all Vampires , witches and fae . I love the main characters Laney and Gareth . Laney is a strong woman who likes to have some fun . There is more to her though.  She is tough and sassy and can take care of herself a lot of the time . Gareth well lets just say he has been dipped in the sexy sauce just a few times . He just oozes sex and can tempt even the hardest woman out there . Yes ladies he is cute too . You will want him to hug or climb like a spider monkey.  They are great characters on their own but together they are hot , hot , hot. 

    I was so excited when I found out that there was going to be another book in the Red Veil series . I love this series and when I sat down and devoured the book . I couldn't put it down . The characters are so well written and complex and we get to visit a new realm the land of the faries .  The author brings in characters from the other books and they blend seamlessly into the stories perfectly . There are twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat and there are also some very smexy scenes that might set your kindle on fire .  You can read this story as a stand alone but I am sure that once you dive into the series you will want to read them all . So if you like vampires , witches and faries . This is the book for you . I would add it to your summer reading challenge . It is a great beach read .

ITS MONDAY

 Good Monday to you all , today I have a new author to me . Check out BEHESIANS by Isaiyan Morris

                            BOOK BLURB 


From tragedy comes destiny.

Cassidy is a 17-year-old girl being raised by her father in San Diego, California. Her existence is a mixed blessing, full of life but burdened with the knowledge that her mother died while giving birth to her. Her mother’s absence constantly weighs on her mind, but she trusts her loving father to protect her like he’s always done.

Until the day that she discovers the truth.

Cassidy is a Behesian – born with dark magic and the ability to do extraordinary things – and it was her mother’s parting gift to her. She’s not the only one out there and her dark gift makes her the strongest one alive. However, her father has kept her talents a secret, but not for her peace of mind. He works for The Brotherhood, a secretive organization that tracks and studies supernatural people… and his daughter is the perfect test subject.

She finally realizes the crucial decision she faces: either stay with her father, the only family she’s ever known – or join her new Behesian brethren in the ultimate fight for survival.

Behesian is a thrilling Young Adult novel about the choices we make and who we really are. Author Isaiyan Morrison crafts this compelling tale of self-discovery against a backdrop of magic, wonder and fate. Because when the true meaning of family gets lost between the lines, sometimes the only way forward… is through your heart.

                           MY REVIEW 
     Cassidy is a typical 17 year old girl living with her father in San Diego , living a good life but has a ache in her heart knowing that her mother died giving birth to her . She trusts her dad to protect her until the day she finds out the truth . That there is more to her , she is Beshesian , born of dark magic . Will she go and help out the Behesian or stay with the only family she knows . 

    Cassidy is your typicial teenager, living with her dad and step sister . She is sweet and there is a sadness to her also . But when she turns seventeen all things seem to fall apart for her and you really start to see her come into her own . She becomes a fierce character as she comes into her powers. There are many characters in this story , some of them good and some of them bad . A couple of characters i liked besides Cassidy , were Darrien and Milan , they started out as friends but drifted apart because they didn't want the same things in life . They do come back together to do what is right to help everyone out. 

   When I sat down to read this book , I was a little confused I didn't exactly know where the author was going to take me .   I started reading and was just a little confused at the beginning but then I hit chapter 4 and things started making sense to me then bang it really took off . I couldn't put it down the characters jumped out at me and I started to like them . This is a great fantasy book for the youn reader in your life . Your teens will devour it . There are many twists and turns and you will start to care for the characters and want Cassidy to make the right choice .  So if you want a good book for your teens summer reading challenge add it to the list

HOPE YOUR WEEKEND IS GOING GREAT

   I hope your weekend is going great and your Sunday is relaxing and full of sunshine . For you Sunday reading I have the second book in the Jackson Investigation series . WILLOW'S CHAOS  by A,J Storm
                            BOOK BLURB

 
Willow’s Chaos

Chaos is one of the most beautiful and horrific pieces of art ever displayed. Built firm, solid, and ripped, his body is his canvas. His unmarked face displays what every woman longs to dream of.

A successful businessman leading an investigative service, he is always searching for those needing help. But deep inside, Chaos has a secret, and he suffers from the pain.

Willow knows how Chaos releases the pressure of life, but he refuses to let her in. With problems of her own, will she let him go, or will she heal herself through helping him?

                        MY REVIEW 
   Welcome back to Austin and the Jackson investigations, we meet Chaos a sexy as sin bad boy with tattoos . One night he is out for the evening where he meets Willow a sweet sexy woman that he shares a dance and a few drinks with. When she walks into his office the next day looking for help , he can't help but take her case .  Will he find her sister and will she open his closed heart and help heal it as she fights to heal her own heart in the process. 

    Ok ladies start fanning yourself right now . Chaos is wow oh wow , he is hot as sin and oh so alpha . He is kind of cocky and man does he have swagger . There are secrets that he is hiding and the only way he can work through it is by getting a tattoo. The pain of a needle helps him releive the pain he is hiding . Trust me ladies you want this man in your life keeping you safe and secure .  What can I say about Willow she is sweet and kind . There is also a very strong desire to help others . She is also hiding hurts and scars from a past that had her not loving her mother.  Howler and the boys are back to help out with the investigation . We also get to hear more about Creeper , I can't wait to read his story . 

     This book is one hot read , I mean just look at the cover , the author did good picking that one out. I mean who doesn't love a man covered in tattoes and built like a brick house. I know I do . Ok enough of my gushing about Chaos . The author takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride and tackles a pretty hot topic that we know happens but hardly hear about it in the news .  This honestly isn't for the faint of heart there is a lot to handle in this book from ptsd and the trafficking in babies . You are set out for a ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat . Don't worry there is a lot of romance and sexy good times in this book also . So if you want a good series to read check out the Jackson Investigations series , add them to your summer reading list , you will not be disappointed

GOOD SATURDAY

 Welcome to the weekend hope your weekend involves some great  reads . Today I am bringing you one of my new favourite authors and her book THE LETTER Dear
Michael ( Unraveled the next generation) by Theresa Sederholt .

                            BOOK BLURB 


 
MICHAEL

He thought his life was perfect. He was ready to take the next step: get married and eventually start a family. Then, a “Dear John” letter and the unearthing of a deeply buried secret turn his dream into a nightmare.

A product of rape.
A family with hidden enemies.
A bank account with more zeros than can be deemed natural.


Michael’s hope of a life without limitations seems too far out of reach to ever be truly realized. The pressure of family, safety, and secrets is overwhelming. Everyone turns to him, but who can he turn to?

“When you step outside the box, you never know who might want to dance with you.”
DAGEN
Dagen is a type-A personality who doesn’t let her own insecurities allow others to pull the wool over her eyes. However, they have boxed her in, limiting her life experiences.
That is until Michael comes along and tries to convince her to step out of her comfort zone. It’s then that he realizes they have that in common; he needs to step out too.

They both learn that when two hearts are searching for each other, nothing and no one can stand in the way. That is until Michael's life hangs in the balance.

A face from Michael's past might hold the key to his future.
But what kind of hoops have to be jumped through to get that key?

This book contains strong language and sexual situations. Mature audiences only. 

                         MY REVIEW 
   This is the continuation of the unraveled trilogy . Michael is all grown up and trying to get his life together .  He has a great job and he was getting married until a week before his wedding he is dumped. With the help of his best friend Bo and his family he heads to the U.S  and a new life . Where he meets and finds his other half in Dagen , Bo's sister and will they realize that they are destined to be together before tragedy take them away from each other . 

     Ok lets see what can i say about these characters . I love them so much . I have loved Michael from the first series . When he was young . He has grown up to be a kind caring man who is the best of both his uncles and his dad . He is confidant and sweet  also he is also can kind an alpha that will make your heart go pitter patter in so many ways .  Girls you will like him wink wink .  
  Dagen is well she is such a strong woman , she doesn't take anything from anyone . She has been hurt and has built walls around her heart so she wont be hurt again. She does have her insecurities that she doesn't fit it but what she doesn't know not fitting into that box of what everyone else thinks makes her even more special .  Each of them on their own are great characters but together they are hot . 

    I was so excited to start reading this book , I loved the Unraveling series . I wanted to see what the author would do with the next generation .  The author didn't disappoint at all . She took the characters and added such a depth to them . The twists and turns will keep you turning the pages.  There are all the characters from the original series .   There are moments that will have you tearing up and then there are the times you will be fanning yourself cause your kindle could be melting . I truly loved this story and if you want to read this story I suggest you read the Unraveling trilogy so you can get to know the rest of the clan before diving in .  Check out and add to your summer reading list .

WE MADE IT TO FRIDAY

Woohooo the weekend is here , we made it to Friday . Today I have a book from one of my new favourite fantasy author. REYANNA'S PROPHECY by Whit McClendon


                           BOOK BLURB 


Reyanna is a woman with a secret. A human raised among the noble and wise Weya, she had passed all the tests and become a Ranger, as adept with bow and dagger as any of the elf-like people who trained alongside her. But she has a frightening power deep within, and it’s growing. When a vision strikes out of nowhere, a powerful prophecy that brings her to her knees, she is thrust headlong into a perilous journey
The war with the vile sorcerer, Mordak, ended over twenty years ago, and the land is peaceful. The Jidaan-wielding Guardians who survived have gone their separate ways, settling into more quiet lives. The power in the short-handled, long-bladed spears has slumbered, no longer needed. When the same vision overcomes the Guardians, they know the time has come to awaken the Jidaan once more.
Gart, wielder of the Jidaan of Storms, and the most powerful of the Guardians, sets out on a dangerous quest that will either reunite him with his love or destroy the world. Three evil sorcerers have their own plans for Gart, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want. And all the while, Reyanna’s power struggles for release.
Can Reyanna and the Guardians solve the riddle of the prophecy in time? Or will Gart’s obsession bring about the end of all things?
It’s a fast-paced, exciting epic fantasy adventure set in the world of the Fire of the Jidaan trilogy!
Packed full of action and adventure, The Forge Born Duology is perfect for fans of Dennis L. McKiernan’s Mithgar series, Simon R. Green’s Forest Kingdom tales, or Raymond Feist’s Riftwar Saga.
Readers who enjoy epic fantasy with mages, monsters, swords, sorcery, and heroes battling against all odds will definitely enjoy this series and its predecessor! Thanks for reading, folks!


                            MY REVIEW
 Welcome to Reyanna and the guardians , a world of magic and prophecy. Where evil sorcerers are trying to get what they want from Gart and Reyanna struggles with the power she has . Will Reyanna and her guardians figure out the riddle before Gart bring on the end of the world . 

    Ok let me catch my breath here , I got this book and dived right on in . Well lets say the characters had me hooked from the first chapter . There is a wide range of characters that will have you captivated . Reyanna the main character is feisty and can fight with the best of them . She is a human that has been raised with the noble Weya and she has worked hard to pass all their tests and now she can kick some butt. I truly loved her . Lets talk about Gart , he is well he is crazy and obsessed with reuniting with his love .  There are so many delightful characters in this book and you will find your favourite . Theses are my two .  They are written so well and complex you will want to wrap them up and keep them safe or slap them upside the head and tell them to smarten up . 

   This book has it all action , mystery and magic . The author has a way of taking us on an adventure full of magic and fantasy . I was like with all this authors books was hooked by the end of chapter one .  When you start reading this book you are transported to a place where you can actually see the book in your mind . For me this book kind of has a shall I say it , a Harry Potter feel to it but with swords and kick butt fight scenes .   This book would be great for your teens who love fantasy , I am actually going to gift this book to a friends daughter who loves fantasy . So if you want a great fantasy that will have you hooked this is the book for you . Add it to you summer reading list or your teens reading challenge

WOW ITS THURSDAY

  Good afternoon all we made it to Thursday or as I love to call it Friday Eve. Today I have a new author and a sweet book . CREDENCE WOODS by Alexandria Sure.

                            BOOK BLURB

 
Weight loss surgery ✓
Successful career ✓
Love … there’s no time for that!



Kennedy Hewson is a workaholic. She hasn’t had a vacation in over five years. Thanks to a streak of record sales, she’s been able to purchase a multi-million dollar condo in downtown Chicago and acquire a boutique-sized collection of fabulous high heels.

While on location for work, and quite unexpectedly, Kennedy finds serenity with an unexpected person in an unexpected place, Credence Woods. Can she give up everything she’s worked so hard for, or will she say goodbye to Tennessee and the stranger who made her feel a sense of ‘home’ for the very first time?

Sometimes, you don’t know you’re missing something until you find it.

                           MY REVIEW 
  Kennedy Hewson is a busy woman , lets call her a workaholic . She has worked for so long she can afford the best of everything .  She has a list of things that she has accomplished . When she heads to Tennessee for a job she is going to cross one more thing off her list. Where low and behold she runs into the man that can make her relax and give her a sense of home where as noone else ever has . Will she realize that the serenity of country living be the one thing that Kennedy has been missing her whole life . 

    I found that I had some things in common with the main character Kennedy . She is feisty but also kind of insecure because of her past and her weight . Also the one she loved broke her heart . So she throws herself into work and become the best that she can . As you read you actually see her come into her own and realize that she can have it all and still have the love she wanted.
  Oh lets talk about Max , oh my goodness , he is a sweet southern gentleman . Who is oh so sexy and sweet . He meets Kennedy at the strip club where he makes her think he is the boss .  He wants a relationship with someone who will love him for him.  I would so bring him home to mom and dad . I truly liked him and Kennedy together as a couple . They so deserved to be with each other . 

    I sat down and started reading this book and I couldn't put the book down. I was totally thinking I had so much in common with the main character . Its hard when you have been heavy to see yourself as skinny . There are ups and downs the characters go through in this book . You just really want to hug them both and say everything is ok . The author will take you on a very emotional rollercoaster ride through out this book . I read it in an evening and think that this would be a great beach read for your summer reading list

WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY

 Well made it to hump day and the week is flying by. Today I have a new author to me  LaVerne Thompson, THE BEAST WITHIN .

                           BOOK BLURB 

 
From moonrise to moonset, the beast will rule.

Caleb’s family had a secret. One they’d held for over 300 years. One he’d reveal to save one woman’s life. Because she was the other half of his soul, even though it was her kind who condemned him to be the beast he was.

Lissette knew her family had secrets. What family in New Orleans as old as hers didn’t have family legends, most she disregarded as nonsense. Until she came across something leaving her no choice but to believe. Especially, when it meant her life… or his.
Because of the subject matter and content must be 18+

                       MY REVIEW 
 After being cursed for over 300 years , Caleb and his family have been keeping the secret . Until the day he sees Lissette at the bar he owns . He feels this pull to her because she is the other part of his soul . What they don't know is that she can be the salvation for him or the death of them . 

    The characters in this story are well written , Lissette is a strong woman who doesn't take anything from anyone . She also comes from a long line of women that have an insight . She can kick butt and will do anything to protect the ones she loves .  Caleb is an alpha , oh so sexy and he knows what he wants and will go and get it . He is also caring and will do anything for those he cares about . I liked these characters as individuals but as a couple they were hot . For every good guy we also have the bad guy . Terrell well he was just a complete idiot and stalker . He was oh so creepy. Now Camille well she is just clueless and kind of the comic relief in the story . I picture her as a blonde for some reason . Then like all good romance stories we have the family that likes to interfere and boy do they ever . 

   I went into this story not knowing what was going to happen . This book took me by surprise  I really got into it . The characters are well written and you start to love them . The author takes us on an adventure through New Orleans and the bayou . There is action , intrigue and oh so much romance . This is a book you can get lost in for an afternoon . So if you want a good read for you summer beach read check it out .

HAPPY RELEASE DAY

  HAPPY RELEASE DAY  for Aleatha Romig and her second book in the Tangled Web series . Its time to get OBSSESSED


                           BOOK BLURB

 
Everything changed the night our eyes met across the room. His green gaze upon me prickled my skin with uncustomary warmth while my peek beneath his cuff—of a riot of color on his wrist—sparked my insatiable curiosity. Tall and mysterious, Kader was a man whose secrets I longed to know.

Little did I realize that the night we met was only the beginning—the beginning to the end of the existence I knew.

What will happen as his assignment becomes our obsession?

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.

OBSESSED is book two of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which began with TWISTED and will conclude with BOUND.
Have you been Aleatha’d?

                           MY REVIEW 
  Kader and Laurel are back and trying to find who is trying to have Laurel killed . They are on the trail but things are going to get even more complicated when they are alone on a ranch in the middle of nowhere . While there they are trying to figure each other out and trying to figure out if her family will be ok . Will they be able to figure each other out and will Laurel break through the hard shell of Kader . 
  
     Laurel and Kader are getting more and more complicated . Sometimes I will admit the Laurel is just a tad bit more defiant when it comes to Kader. She wants to break through his hard shell but she tries too hard some times . She is also shows more worry about everything in this book and it shows .  Kader well he is still so yummy and so alpha . There are moments though we see a sweeter kinder side to him . He is also having some feelings that he thought were long dead . There are moments where you really just want to either hug him or hit him in the back of the head with a frying pan to knock some sense into him . These two are so hot together , I love them as a couple . 

    This book starts where book one ends off on the road to the ranch . The author takes us on a very emotional ride this time . There is so much that happens in this one , the twists and turns will have you reading all night long .  This book has it all , suspense , mystery and romance and with romance there is heartbreak and a second chance at love . There is a twist at the end of the book that will make you gasp . I so can't wait for book three in the series . I really want to know what the research is that is so important and will Kader and Laurel find their happily ever after with each other . If you want a great series that will leave you wanting more check out the Tangled Web series . Add them to your summer reading challenge today . You will not be disappointed .
