HAPPY RELEASE WEEK H.P MALLORY

   We have another release today from one of my favourite authors . THE AWAKENING a Vampire romance ( Bryn and Sinjin book 6) by H.P Mallory

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
A Vampire Romance from New York Times Bestselling Author, HP Mallory

“If you like Charlaine Harris, you’ll love HP Mallory!” ― Larissa Ione, New York Times Bestselling Author

THE AWAKENING:

While returning from a scouting mission to attempt to locate Luce’s camp, Bryn stumbles on a wolf-girl strapped to a rack and left for dead.

Once rescued, the girl, Dayna, tells Bryn and company all about the newest flavor of Luce’s evil and, most specifically, what Luce plans to do to Bryn, if he ever takes her as prisoner again…

And Bryn’s time in Luce’s breeding program will pale in comparison to the newest torture he’s devised…

Upon returning to the queen and Kinloch Kirk, a new arrival starts heating up the scene and making waves. Audrey Chevalier, Dureau’s beautiful French sister, seems to be overly interested in Master Vampire, Sinjin Sinclair.

And unless Bryn’s mistaken, Sinjin appears to return Audrey’s affections.

Will this budding new romance push Bryn into the arms of Dureau? Or will it make her second guess her decision to avoid a romantic attachment with Sinjin?

Meanwhile, Jolie continues to gain allies as it appears the Underworld is soon to go to battle with Luce’s forces yet again.

That is, until Dureau informs Bryn about the true nature of her ancestry, information which could absolutely change the tide of the war for all involved.

And, prepare yourself, for an ending to this book that will leave you speechless…

The Awakening is book six in the Bryn and Sinjin vampire romance series.

Book one is Sinjin and a FREE download!

                         MY REVIEW 
    Bryn and Sinjin are back and in hot water yet again . After coming back from a scouting mission to find Luce's camp . They rescue a she wolf that has been left for dead strapped to a rack . After rescuing the young wolf they hear all about what Luce is going to do to Bryn if he ever gets his hands on her again. But thats the least of their worries once back at the castle Sinjin seems to be taken with Dureau's beautiful sister  Audrey and she is overly interested in our vampire . Which pushes Bryn into the arms of Dureau who has a secret of his own .  With Jolie gaining allies in the Underworld to fight Luce they are ready to go to war . Will they survive and will Bryn and Sinjin be able to work their way back to each other.
 
    I absolutely adore the characters in this series . Bryn is at war with herself and her feeling for the two men in her life . She is feisty and strong and will kick your butt just as soon as look at you . You also see a vulnerable side to her that make you fall for her even more. Sinjin is well he is suave and debonair but he is also conflicted in this book . He knows he wants Bryn but when he is tempted well you know what happens . I absolutely adore Sinjin  Jolie and the rest of the gang is also back and you will love them  all . 

    This book had me from the first chapter . I simply adore the characters and they are so well written and complex . The author takes us on quite an adventure in this book . You will get emotionally invested in them . I have loved Sinjin since i met him in the very first book and he just keeps getting better and better . I am going to warn you though there is a big cliff hanger at the end of this book . Its a holy moley what the heck kind of cliff hanger that will actually have you kind of cheering .  So if you want a book that has a lot of romance intrigue and magic check out the series . You will love them all .

                         MY REVIEW 

   Aravon a well respected Captain with his own company when they are attacked by some savages the company must not repeat the hellish histroy that is bound to repeat itself .  Can they take over come the savages and can Aravon take command of his fighting spirit before the savages take over the kingdom. 

  I must say the characters in this book are very well written and complex . Aravon is a strong man who has some flaws that make him such a good character. He is strong and commanding in a good way . He is the lone survivor of a massacre that has shaped into the man he is .  The people in his company  Colburn has lived a life of hardship as a half breed . He is one of a kind. I liked him .  Then there is Belthar , he is a gentle giant that is so sweet but also so much in pain . You can feel it when he talks he is very closed off and quiet. You will want to hug him and keep him safe . Skathi is the only woman archer and she is strong and can fight with the best of them . You really don't want to mess with her, she is also hiding some pain from her past . I loved her character and she really does put the boys in their place .  Noll is snarky but deep inside he has a heart of gold and there is a goodness deep down that you will love when he brings it out . Zaharis is a secret keeper , mute but a great alchemist and he is also on the hunt for something that might not even exsist . Last but not least is Ranvladr a sweet man and a healer who has the heart of the biggest warrior but honestly just really wants peace . I loved all these characters and the way they interact with each other and will lay their lives on the line for each other when push comes to shove . 

    Ok i am going to tell you right up front this is a long book but you won't notice cause the author sucks you in by chapter two .  The author weaves such a fine story with great characters and such a great story line  The battel scenes are well written and the twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat. The story weaves itself around you and puts you in the middle of the action. You will be cheering Aravon and the company on through out the story . You will also want to wrap them up in blankets and tell them that everything will be ok . So if you want a complex story with characters that will have you cheering them on this is the book for you . So if you want a great stroy that will have you reading all night long this is the book for you .

WOOHOO IT IS FRIDAY

Well the first weekend in September and its going to be a great weekend . Today I have the second book in the Unscripted series for you. LIFE UNSCRIPTED by Taylor Delong .

                            BOOK BLURB 

  
One night.
What I thought I knew, what I thought I deserved, what I thought life had planned for me was all thrown out the window in one night.

“I’m not naive to believe that the road will be easy by any means, that I won’t stumble, have roadblocks in my path.”

I thought I knew love, what it meant to love another person so strongly that it consumed me. Except all that changed in one night. My life was all laid out, but apparently fate had other ideas.

Thrown into the unknown, I learned who I could count on. What I didn’t count on was her and the unconventional relationship we started to build.

“What I do know is I’m not alone; I won’t ever have to walk alone.”

As much as I’m struggling to deal with this loss, it’s not just about me anymore. She needs me more than ever, and I’m not prepared to let her down.

In one night, my life became unscripted.

                     MY REVIEW 
    This is Luke's story and we start right where book one left off in the hospital on the worst night of his life . When his wife dies Luke's life  is thrown into turmoil . His daughter will be born soon and he is left grieving for the life he lost with Lanie and he is scared of the future with his daughter . With the help of his family and the nurse and friend Renee he might have a chance at the life that will be great . 
   
   Emmy ,Luke and the gang are back .  I must say that they are better written and more complex in this book . Luke is thrown for a loop and must rely on the family to help him through. He really grows in this story and we see him come to terms with everything that has happened . There is a new character that helps him through . Renee is the nurse that comes into his life when he needs a friend . She has known the family for ever . They really do click when they are together. 

  The theme of this book is family and what they would do in a crisis . The author really puts them through the wringer in this book . The twists and turns are great and you really get to see how this family comes together when they are needed . Trust me there are time in this book that you will want to wrap Luke up in a blanket and tell him every thing will be ok . There is only one thing that stopped me from giving it 5 stars , I felt it dragged a little in spots . Over all I really enjoyed this book and was so happy how things worked out . This series would be a great read for a fall evening .

WELL WE MADE TO THURSDAY

Wooohooo made it to Thursday or as I like to call it Friday eve . Today I have another new author to me and her book CHANCE ENCOUNTER  by Susan Meachen

                            BOOK BLURB 

 

Emily was born into a world of hate, drugs, abuse, and human tracking. She’s always worked hard to stay on the honor roll in school and worked hard to get a free ride to college. She wants nothing more than to make her way out of the life she was born into. Emily has dark secrets that she believes only her best friend, Ginger Gold, knows about. She’s also been crushing on the one man no one can touch the biggest playboy in Davonport, Georgia, Blake Shaw.

Blake was born with the world at his feet he’s never had to work for anything in his life. Women they lined up to please him job it was handed to him once he finished school. The one thing he wants the most is going to be a challenge to say the least. Blake has watched Emily for years and he is determined to make her his for the rest of this lifetime and the next lifetime.

When Emily and Blake cross paths the chemistry and passion is undeniable. Waiting to find your soul mate is a test in patience and these two are just about out of patience.
Can these two find happiness and peace together or will their past mistakes destroy their new-found love?

                          MY REVIEW 
   
Welcome to Davon port Georgia where a chance encounter between the biggest playboy and the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Emily the girl that has been brought up in a world of hate, drugs and sex trafficking . She has maintained her innocence and has worked hard to blend in so no one can see her . Until the day Blake sees her and when they cross paths there is such chemistry . When they are together they ignite but will their pasts keep them apart and destroy their new found love .                  

    The characters are well written and complex. Blake is your young hot playboy , who has money, good looks and charisma . He also fun loving and fiercely protective of those he loves . He is also hiding a secret that will hurt him and his relationship .  Emily tries to be tough but deep down inside she is sweet and kind . She has grown up in a hateful relationship with her so called mother . She does come of a little na├»ve sometimes through out the book but underneath the tough girl is a woman that is so kind and sweet.  On their own the are great characters but when together they are explosive . The cast of characters that are there for these two are vast and such good characters . Charlotte is even good in her evil ways . Trust me there are moments that you want to punch Charlotte and knock her out . Miguel and Ginger are a great pair as their best friends that keep them grounded

   Set aside a evening cause once you start reading this book you will have a hard time putting it down. The story is one you will get sucked into with lots of twists and turns .  The characters are well written and complex . One moment you will hug them and then you will want to slap them into the back of their heads cause they did something really stupid .  The only thing I found that there were a few spelling errors and it kind of dragged in a few places  that can be taken care of with a bit of tightening up in the chapters . Over all I truly enjoyed this book the ending had me balling like a baby . That ending was such a shocker . If you want a good read for your fall reading list add this book

WOW ITS WEDNESDAY ALREADY

 Its already Wednesday, hoping everyone is having a great week . Today I have the last book in the Gnomeling series . GNOMELING TREKS THE MIDNIGHT FOREST  by Dawn M Paul

                            BOOK BLURB 

  Oh thistle-stickers! Christian Tompta, the gnomeling, has conquered his fear time and again-even going so far as to save the gnome village of Joddeburg from certain catastrophe. The Gnome Council has granted him the position of gnome guardian, and now all he has left to do is retrieve his mystical shoes and conical from the Cobbler in the Midnight Forest. It should be an easy journey, right? Join Christian as he eagerly awaits his final destination in this exciting conclusion to "The Tales of Christian Tompta!"

                        MY REVIEW 
     Well Christian has done it , he has saved the village of Joddeburg and he has finally earned his hat and shoes . All he has to do is head to the cobbler in the Midnight Forest . You think that would be easy but this is Christian we are talking about . He and his father head out adventure awaits .
   Christian has grown up so much through out this series . He is finally ready to watch over a human . He shows great strength and smarts when his dad is hurt . I was truly impressed on how he grew up and took charge .
    The last book in the series will have your kids cheering  Christian on . The author still puts Christian through some perils but you see him get through them with ease . I am going to get this series for my niece it is such a great way to show them even when you are scared you can conquer it and find a way through it . This should be on your kids reading list for this fall

GOOD TUESDAY

 Wow I hope everyone had a great long weekend and are back to work and school wen ok today . Today I have a new author to me Taylor Delong and her book LOVE UNSCRIPTED .

                            BOOK BLURB 

  
“There’s more at stake; this isn’t just ‘let’s hope this works.’ No, it’s a Hail Mary pass, a last ditch effort.”

I’m living out my fairy tale, but there is nothing typical about our romance. We love fast and we love hard; for me and Junior, love was always just that easy. Asked to do the ultimate favor for a loved one, I can’t say no.

I can only hope that our fairy tale will still end in happily ever after.

My relationship to Emmy has always been a whirlwind from the day we met. She’s the wild card to my straight shooter, the storm to my calm, the crazy to my sane. Yet, we’ve always balanced each other out perfectly.

She’s the strongest, most selfless person I know, and that’s why she couldn’t say no. And she needed my support.

Foolishly, I thought we could survive anything but will love unscripted destroy us all?

                         MY REVIEW 
 When Junior meets Emmy at the bar he works at it was love a first sight . He has been there for her in the good times and the bad times . Now they are asked to do the ultimate thing for her brother and sister n law . Now things are growing and in between morning sickness and the trials of their youngest daughter. Will Junior and Emmy survive the onslaught . 

   The characters in this book are written well and you will like them . The family is very close and love being with each other . Junior is a good guy who at first wanted to have fun but he grows up and becomes a really good guy . He is a great father and husband and best friend . Emmy is sweet and she is the only girl in the family . She kind of drove me a little bit crazy she tries to keep up with the guys and ends up drunk a few times . The family is the kind of family you want they defend each other and are there when things go bad to pick you up and dust you off .  This is a wacky fun loving family , you will want to be a part of it . 

  This is a sweet read and a fast read , you can read it in an evening . The characters are fun to read. This is an instant love romance and they go from meeting to married and kids . The story is also a bit of real life that goes on about one couple not being able to have children and surrogate situation and all the pitfalls that go along with that . I really liked this story but there are parts of the story that I felt that just were choppy  and some of the chapters just felt like there was something missing . Over all i did like the story and where the author was taking us . I am going to say there is a shocking cliff hanger at the end of this book and you will want to dive into the second book right away . This would be a great book to read with a glass of wine  and a cozy blanket . So check it out if you love intsa love and family hilariousness .

OK ITS SUNDAY

Ok it is Sunday and a sleepy Sunday it is . Hope your weekend is going great . Today I have the last book in a great series from Matthew Cox . ANGEL DESCENDED (The Awakened series )

                           BOOK BLURB

 
When an angel returns to Earth, millions will die.

A being born of darkness bends the Angel to his will, intent on covering West City with a rain of fire. The authorities close in on Archon, forcing him to act in haste. His meticulous plan to seek sanctuary for psionics in deep space frays at the seams, providing the perfect venue for a demon to reshape the world.

Seven individuals—The Awakened—fight for their place in a society unprepared for them.

One discovers the light within and risks everything she loves to help others.

One learns she lives a comfortable lie, but chooses a painful truth.

One gives himself to darkness in hopes of saving the only family he has left.

One struggles with anger, trying to fit into a civilization that never wanted her.

One searches for absolution from the harshest judge of all—himself.

One will do anything it takes to protect his people.

…and One just wants to watch the show.

                       MY REVIEW 
   I suggest that you read the first five books in the series so you can understand what is happening in the final book . When all 7 of the psionics come together . They are put in a difficult situation . They are fighting for their place in the world . Will they be able to find their place and not get involved with the Angel that is going to destroy the world . 

   There are so many characters in this book , all the characters from each of the books are back and trying to figure out where they belong . Aaron is trying to find his place in division zero while trying not to show his true colours . To Marmoru who is just trying to save his sister . Aleatha and Aurora that just want to help out a home and Aurora wants to heal . To the rest of the psionics. These characters were so well written in their own books but I will say that they are more complex in this last book . They all have their destiny to fulfill . I loved each and every character in the books . 

  This book sums up the series so well, the author writes with such a passion for details . He mixes cyber punk with magic . He writes each chapter from a characters point of view and what was happening in their life at that point. There are many face paced fights , chases and some heists that will keep you on the edge of your seat through out most of the book . You will be turning pages late into the night . There is more to this author's books then faced paced action . There are a deeper meaning to some of the story plots that the author has . Like how far can one person go in the name of charity to help someone out . This story is a long one but wow it does wrap up the series nicely with everyone finally getting the happy endings that they need . I would read the whole series before diving in but this book will be EPIC .

HAPPY LONG WEEKEND

Well it is the Labour day long weekend here and it is time to snuggle up with a large pumpkin spice tea and a good book . Today I have a book for your middles schooler its book 3 in the Tales of Christian Tompta . GNOMELING JOURNEYS TO JODDEBURG by Dawn M Paul

                            BOOK BLURB 

  
Christian has done it again. This is one gnomeling who keeps messing up-even when he's trying to do well! Can a gnomeling ever get a break?

In book 3 of "The Tales of Christian Tompta," Papa joins Christian as he journeys to Joddeburg, the gnome village. While traveling, they meet up with old friends, greet new gnomes, see how different their lives could be, and explore the renowned Gnomympic Games! Who will compete? Will the Gnome Council find out about his latest caper? What disasters will Christian face this time? Will he finally earn his mystical shoes and conical to become a human guardian, or will he give up all he has worked toward, and go home?

                          MY REVIEW
  What is a Gnomiling to do , poor Christian has gone and done it again . While traveling to Joddeburg with his father they meet of with some new gnomes and some old friends . As we know nothing ever seems to go right when Christian is involved . 

 In this book we meet some new characters that are colourful and well written . They are very interesting  creatures. We also get to see how Christian is with his dad . His papa is a sweet kind gnome that wants to see Christian succeed . I truly loved these characters and the way they interact with each other . 

  This is a sweet story and it teaches us a lesson that if you screw up you can come back from it . Christian is a sweet bumbling gnomeling and he seems to always be screwing up . But it also says that you can come back from screwing up and do something extraordinary. The story is a great read for those between the ages of 5 - 10 they will love the characters and the illustrations that go along with the story . The story is easy to read and you will love it also .  You will really want to know if poor Christian gets his cone hat and his shoes . You will cheer him on and laugh with him and cry with him . I would add this to any middle graders reading challenge .

ITS THE LAST WEEKEND OF SUMMER

Wow its the end of August the summer went by so fast . Today I have the finally book in the Ashwood series for you . TROUBLE UNDONE by Kinney Scott

                             BOOK BLURB

   
Three different men try to tame Kelsey. Only one makes her come undone.
Kelsey Fisher refuses to mask the qualities that make her successful.
Is she competitive? All day long.
Aggressive? Sure, when she needs to be.
Impatient? Ask the guy she just passed on the highway - he’s probably still coughing on the dust left by her wake.
She’s hard to take, but Kels can’t compromise.
As an owner of Venture, an outdoor guiding business, she needs those qualities to face the challenge of a remote mountain trail or a run on a class-five river.
Yet, there a times when she needs to unplug and go way off grid.
Only one man understands her softer side – the surfer she crosses paths with on the Oregon Coast. He’s uncomplicated, gorgeous, effortless.
Unfortunately, Mark’s destined to follow the waves and move on.
                          MY REVIEW 
    Kelsey is competitive and aggressive no man can tame her . Owning an outfitting , guiding company she has to be tough to keep her clients safe . There are times when she needs to unwind, unplug and just get off the grid . There is only one man that knows her softer side she can't keep her mind off of him but Mark has a destiny to follow the waves . 

 Mark and Kelsy's story is a hard story , they go through so much . Kelsey is a feisty .sassy woman . She is out going and fun . There is more to her , there is a hurt there in her heart . She is stronger then most people think she is and after her accident we see her fight even harder to get back what she has lost. Mark is an easy going surfer who just wants to hang out and hit the waves. He is a sweet guy but sometimes he does come off just a little bit shallow. When he is with Kelsey things seem to change in both of them. Now there is Parker , she is a crafty one that woman . You really can't trust her at all . She just seems to want to hurt everyone around her. 

  I honestly think that this book is the one that the author has poured all her angst into . The characters are very well written and complex . There are moments you want to wrap the characters up in blankets and hug them tight .  Their story is very complex and there are moments that you will cry and laugh and there are moments when you think of what you would do in the situation they are in . The author takes us on a very emotional roller coaster ride in this final book .  This book shows us about family and true friends and what they will do to help you out . This is a great book and I think the whole series should be on your tbr list for this fall . Check them out .

SEPTEMBER IS GETTING CLOSER

  Good morning everyone , I hope everyone is winding down their summer reading challenges . I have a book for your middle grade kids to finish off their reading challenge. GNOMELING (Tales of Christian Tompta ) by Dawn M Paul


                            BOOK BLURB 

 
Gnomeling is a family-friendly middle grade fantasy novel about a young gnome who must take on a mission, so that if he succeeds, he may become a guardian over the young human, Zach. Light hearted and fun, this book puts Christian against nature's elements to overcome his emotions to succeed.
From the Back Cover: "Living a quiet and protected life amongst the books with his family, Christian Tompta begins to feel a stirring for adventure like those he’s read about. As his thirteenth birthday draws near, gnome culture dictates that he must complete a quest to earn his mystical shoes and conical hat - if he wants to become a human guardian, the most elite of gnome jobs. Protecting a human has been Christian’s dream for as long as he can remember, but now as the date looms closer, anxiety and fear begin to take hold of him. Christian knows that the assignment will be dangerous, and he will be alone. What will his charge be? Will he be able to complete his mission? Or will he freeze from fear, panic and fail?

Join Christian on his adventure to find the answers to these questions and more."

                        MY REVIEW 
    Christian Tompta is a young gnome who is living a quiet life amongst the books with his family . As his thirteenth birthday approaches he feels a stirring for adventure . As the culture dictates on his thirteenth birthday he must go on a quest to earn his hat and magical slippers and get the name of the human he will be protecting .As the time comes near he is full of anxiety and fear . Will he be able to handle the quest or will his fear get the better of him . 

    This is a sweet story and the characters are well written . Christian is a sweet gnome who just wants to help his human and be amongst his books .  He is sweet and kind but also has insecurties about what he has to do . We watch him come to terms with the anxiety that he has and he becomes brave with the help of a bunny that saves him time after time. 

   This is a sweet coming of age book and it was a joy to read it as an adult . The characters are well written  and the story is sweet and also has a lesson to learn about coming through your fears and conquering them . The author built a world that is fantasy and sweet that your kids will be caught up in . The story can be enjoyed by you and your kids .  Get this book for your kids for the cool fall nights .

WELCOME TO TUESDAY

Wow I can't believe it is that last week in August where did the summer go . I hope everyone had some great books that they got read this summer . To start off our Fall reading challenge I have a new author to introduce you to . O.E Tearmann . THE HANDS WE'RE GIVEN ( Aces high. Jokers wild book one )

                         BOOK BLURB 

 
Aidan Headly never wanted to be the man giving orders. That's fine with the Democratic State Force base he's been assigned to command: they don't like to take orders. Nicknamed the Wildcards, they used to be the most effective base against the seven Corporations owning the former United States in a war that has lasted over half a century. Now the Wildcards are known for creative insubordination, chaos, and commanders begging to be reassigned.
Aidan is their last chance. If he can pull off his assignment as Commander and yank his ragtag crew of dreamers and fighters together, maybe they can get back to doing what they came to do: fighting for a country worth living in.

Life's a bitch. She deals off the bottom of the deck. But you play the hands you're given.


                         MY REVIEW 
 The Wildcards are the unit that you go to when you need things done and have no worries on how it get done. Aiden Headly is the one who is in command of this ragtag crew , he really doesn't want to be the commander . Can he get his team to come together and do the job that needs to be done so they can fight for a country that is worth living in . 

    The characters in this book are well written and very complex .  Each member of the team has a mind set that is beneficial for the team.  There is more to the characters then just the skills they have . Each member has a well not a secret but there is more to them then meets the eye. Aiden is a trans gender and Kevin is gay and grew up differently then the rest of the team . I truly loved how these characters come together and become the team that they are suppose to be . 

   The ideals of this dystopian tale are so real . The idea of having the perfect world and pushing those who don't come up to the standards out to the outskirts . This story has it all . We have those who want to fight for the rights for all and those who want those that are different destroyed . I like that the author used LGBT characters and shone a light on those that are different . They are such good characters I was cheering for them all the way through their missions . The book has some great twists and turns that will keep you reading.  This isn't a love story but the author does mix a little bit of romance in . There were a few parts in the book that i felt that were slow but over all I truly enjoyed this book and was glad when I found it . So if you want a different story set in a futuristic dystopia book check it out and add it to your fall reading list

WELCOME TO SUNDAY

 Welcome to a humid Sunday on the ranch. The best day to stay inside and read which is what I am doing . Today I have the first book in Kinney Sott's  Ashwood series . INHERITING TROUBLE .

                            BOOK BLURB 

  
Natalie must redefine her future, but the carpenter she hires tangles her in knots.
Natalie Journey knows better. She’s always chosen the right thing, the sensible path. When had sensible started to feel so boring?
Buried in debt, she takes a barista job at her grandfather’s retirement community. A safe position, that pays well. Unfortunately, now her idea of rebellion is sneaking an extra squirt of whipped cream on her iced coffee.
She always dreamed of something different, exciting - to travel in a tiny home and photograph landscapes.
Tragic changes grant her wish, and suddenly designing her tiny home is within reach.
But the rugged craftsman Natalie hires has hidden talents she never expected. And with the way his leather tool belt hangs on his hips, she’s ready to give the sexy man control.
Seth takes one glance at the alluring redhead and almost walks the other way. Yet, her tempting curves have Seth wondering if a summer fling might be worth the risk.
Natalie’s not long term. When the final coat of paint dries on her tiny home, she’ll be gone.
Worlds collide in a sexy small town romance where Seth a Natalie must choose. Do they stick to careful plans or build an unpredictable future together?

                          MY REVIEW 
   Lets head to Ashwood a small town where everyone knows everyone . Meet Seth the sexy craftsman that builds tiny homes for a living . When Natalie shows up wanting a tiny home built . Sparks fly and they both think a summer fling would be fun but can they stop there or are they willing to go the whole nine yards . 

   There are so many characters in this book we have the two main characters Natalie and Seth . They are well written . Then there are co workers Kent for one and cousins and friends . Also there are family members. They all have a place in the book and you will love or hate each and everyone of them 
Oh yeah there is also Wade's ex wife who still likes to bump uglies with Wade on occasion. I love each and everyone of the characters . Wade is sexy and also really pocessive when it comes to Natalie . He wants her but is so scared to take the plunge cause he knows she is going to be leaving him . Natalie is sweet and feisty but she has always done the right thing . Now its her time to shine and do what she wants to do and spread her wings and fly . I like them and they are great when they get together . 

   I accidently read these books out of sequence but that didn't stop me from liking them. I really like small town stories . The author packs so much into this first book . We meet so many characters and the author sets up the characters for the rest of the series . Each character is well written and you will love them or hate them . The author has small town pegged , about everyone knowing everyones business before you do most of the time . The romance is hot hot hot , trust me you imagination will take over as you read . This is a sweet series that has small town values and some of the hotttest people out there . The first book in the series is free . So check it out  and add it to your fall reading list

HAPPY SATURDAY ALL

Welcome to Saturday everyone hope you weekend is going well . Today I have the next book in the Awakened series. ZERO ROGUE  by Matthew S Cox.

                          BOOK BLURB 

 
Division 0 Officer Aaron Pryce understood any day on the job could be the last for him or his wife—but he never imagined he’d be the one to kill her.

As it turned out, the world of professional sports frowned on using Telekinesis on the field. So, a “career ending injury” quietly sent him to West City to escape anti-psionic Britain. Joining Division 0 made for a drastic change of lifestyle for a once-famous Frictionless player, but meeting Allison made his exile worth it.

Two years into his new life as a cop, he corners a psionic suspect in the middle of a robbery… and she compels Aaron to shoot his partner. Despite his love for his wife, he loses an agonizing battle of wills. His mind—and his world—shatter. When he wakes, the store is gone. Only a field of debris and dead civilians remains.

A department telepath attempts to verify his story, but triggers another fatal backlash, killing several officers. Considered a murderer with out-of-control powers, Aaron has no choice but to go rogue.

On the run from the law, he has one goal: to find the woman who killed Allison—and end her.

                           MY REVIEW 
   When officer Aaron Pryce took the job in Division 0 he knew that any day could be his last but he never thought that he would be the one to kill his partner and his wife . When one day he corners a psionic in the middle of a robbery. She compels him to kill his wife and his world shatters . When a telepath tries to help him out there is a backlash that kills a few officers . So he has no choice but to go Rogue . To clear his name he has to find the woman who made him kill his wife and bring her down . 

  I truly love the characters in this series . The author writes some really complex characters that are usually broken at the beginning but we get to see them heal as the story goes on . Case in point Aaron is a broken shell of a man since his wife was murdered . All he wants to do is find the woman who compelled him. He is a strong man but he is so broken and just wants to be free of the pain he is suffering .  He is you classic tortured character and you will love him , 

   This book is for anyone who loves a good sci fi mixed in with a little cyber punk . The author takes us on a ride that has so many twists and turns . Once you start reading you can't put it down . The story will have you on the edge of your seat most of the time . I couldn't put it down . I love how each character in the series is evolving and growing .  I recommend this series for those who really love a good dystopian sci fi read . It may seem long but once you start reading the time passes for fast . You will get sucked in and love the characters . So add this series to your fall reading list .
