Anathema - Megg Jensen


I do not even know where to begin with this. I loved this book so much, I still think about!

Book 1 of the Cloud Prophet Trilogy
, I can honestly say . . I'm SOOO glad there is more to come.

This book is one that will have you questioning everything . . is anything really as it seems?

Reychel is a slave, and one that is treated so differently than the rest. Rules are different for her, she isn't allowed to go outside, or be in rooms where windows are open. She is given one on one time with her Master . . only then is she allowed to look out the window and enjoy the sun and the sky.

Step in the world that is Reychels' and join her on her journey to discover who she is and why things have always been the way they were. Discover with her just who it is that she can trust, and who she can't.

I can not wait for Summer to get here! I am so looking forward to the 2nd book . . I hope the wait doesn't kill me!

Fierce Dawn

Fierce Dawn - Amber Scott

I enjoyed this book so very much!!

The first few chapters were a little slow going for me, as I tried to sort through and understand how things were beginning. Once I got the basics of the story line down, the book just took off! I found myself not wanting to put the book down, just dying to see what would happen next. Then the book ended . . . WHY!?!?!

If you are in the mood to read something that will take over your body until your finished (and even for some time after your finish) I would recommend picking up this book. You won't be disappointed!

Monogamy Sucks

Monogamy Sucks - George Pappas

The first thing that got my attention was the title. I had added it to my ebook wish list and then happened to stumble on it for free through a cage match blog contest.

I started to read it, and was struck with a WOW moment. This could so easily be a page (or more) from the journal of any man. Your neighbor, your boss, the geek from high school. I seriously felt as tho I was getting a good taste of just how a man thinks. (This could be a good thing, and then again . . this could be a bad thing.)

Although I enjoyed reading the book, I'm not sure it's one I would recommend to just anyone. So, on that note I would say . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Enter at your own risk!

A Forever Kind of Love - Shiloh Walker

A Forever Kind of Love

I enjoyed this book so much! Although it did make me cry at a few points, I also smiled while I was reading this book.

What do you do when:
The love of your life just up and leaves after graduation?

When you have a mother, who for appearance sake allows you the privilege to remain under her roof . . until she able to give you the boot?

When the guy who was there to help pick up the pieces, asks you to marry him? (Even if you don't really love him)

Zoe gets to answers those questions and a whole lot more. With the weight of the world on her shoulders, and the return of her high school love . . could life get anymore complicated.

This book will have you feeling an assortment of feelings, from anger, sadness, to love, happiness . . and everything in between. You will want to make sure to keep the tissues handy.

I completely enjoyed reading this book, and would highly recommend it!

Book Review

I picked up this book after having read many different thread posts discussing the book. When the discussion began, I had placed the book on my wish list . . then someone alerted the book club it was being offered for free. I rushed to pick it up thinking, "One day I'll read this." Within the first chapter or so I was hooked. I believe this book gives you a large sampling of everything one could hope to feel while reading a book. You will feel love, hate, excitement, happy, and sad (you get the picture).

To start with we have Myrna Evans. Myrna has a dark past, one she is trying so hard to escape. A marriage that was less than stellar, she has worked hard to over come the damage it done. Currently a professor, Myrna attends a conference. On her way back to her room one evening, close to the end of her stay she discovers, staying in the same hotel is one of her all time favorite bands. A band she often uses reference of when teaching her classes. After approaching their table, she proves to them she isn't just another pretty face, claiming to "know" them.

Brian Sinclair, the lead songwriter and guitarist for the band, just broke up with his girlfriend. What was her name? Jessica, Angie, . . . and is drowning his "sorrows" in his beer. Completely drunk/wasted when Myrna approaches the table he is SHOCKED when she says good bye to everyone at the table . . everyone but him. For Brian Sinclair, he was given her room number. Clearly he missed the part where she told him she could help him with his "condition" if he came to the room. He goes to the room, hoping to just NOT pass out on the way.

Myrna can't believe that Brain Sinclair is in HER room! After setting him straight, she asked him up to help him avoid an hangover . . she agrees to let him sleep there. When morning comes, he hears music, literally. This is where the book will grab you!

Get ready for a wonderful ride. This book will take you on highs and lows. Be prepared for anything and everything, because this book has it.

I would highly recommend this book, especially if you are in the mood for some love and rock n roll.

His Teddy Bear by Eve Langlais

This was the cutest HOT story I think I have ever read. This was a quick read for me, because once I got started I just couldn't put it down. One would think, that by simply walking around a bar one night we could possible find our soul mate, and things would be so much easier, right? Well, not if your soul mate has put up wall and made themselves believe that no will ever love them. How does one go about proving them self? Well, NOT by calling that soul mate chunky . . yep guess what, there went another wall! Take a ride with Reece as he does his darn-est to prove to Teddy, what he offers is real.

This was a very enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more from Eve Langlais.

Book Review

Blood Knot - Tracey Cooper-Posey

What to say first, Hmmm. Let us have a moment to just take in the view of the cover to this book . . . shall we?

Ok, now stop before you short circuit the device you are using to read this review on. Now, back to what is on the inside of the book.

This book purchase for me was one based on another review. First I thought, what kind of story takes 600+ pages to tell! (I hadn't read a book that long since, ummm around Christmas). Then I started reading. The first few chapters for me were a little slow going . . full of information needed to understand somewhat of why we were, where we were. Trust, "Lucy" still has some explaining to do down the line. I'm not sure when it actually was in the story that it happened, but at some point . . you start to feel for each of the characters. Maybe you want to shake Winter and smack some sense to her! Or maybe you want to throttle Nathaniel. There maybe times you wish to give Sebastian a map and tell him to FOLLOW it! Then something happens . . and it's like HOLY COW! Somehow, this three ring circus of emotions comes together and BANG! a spectacular show is presented. This book will leave you worn out. It will drain you of emotions you didn't even know you were capable of feeling. I'm sure you will even feel a little confused after this reading book . . confused as to how on earth just reading those words made you pant a little, or moan a little, or . . . yeah, you get the picture. This book may not be for everyone. If you have an open mind, please jump on in . . the water is just fine (until you are no longer alone it, then it gets HOT!).

Eternal Rider - Larissa Ione

I bought this book simply for the fact I am in love with the Demonica Series and wanted to hold on to whatever I could of it. (I didn't wanna let go.) So, with the promise of "appearances" of some old friends from books past I jumped in! At first it was a little slow to get going. After putting the book down for a bit and looking online, I found a review that stated just that. That it's slow going but around page 100 WATCH out. That gave me hope, not to give up. (The first portion is so important to get an understanding of the story line.) After you grasp that, then the books just takes off. If you are looking for the romance/erotica of the Demonica Series, you won't find it here. Don't get me wrong, there is heat in this book! However, it's the dark parts of this book that will stick with you. By the time I finished the book, I was thinking . . WOW! Is it December yet? I am so ready for next installment.

Kissed From Beyond - Keta Diablo,
Amber Scott,
Elise Hepner,
Stacey Kennedy

What did I think . . well! To start with, let me just say . . when I purchased this book, I bought it because I love everything I have read by Stacey Kennedy so far. Now, in order to get to her story . . I had to work through the writings of three other authors.

Cradle of Dreams by Keta Diablo: What a cute story! Take a short trip back in time with Kendra/Kendrick. Get wrapped up in the feelings of a lover lost/lover found. This short story has heat, but nothing you shouldn't be able to hide if you wanna read on the beach or at the park.

A Love Soul Deep by Amber Scott: Sara, lost in her depression over the loss of love so young, so new. Can her heart ever be repaired? This book has a little more heat than the first story . . maybe you should read it at home.

One Rub More by Elise Hepner: Helena never thought that simply house sitting would turn into . . . WOW. This one just may have every woman in America on the look for a silver teapot. Most assuredly this has some heat to it . . but, you should be able to not blush . . maybe!

'Til We Meet Again by Stacey Kennedy: Cassie, it was just a make over job on an old house being renovated, right? How could a little trip to the local Antique store change a persons life? Just that quickly . . that trip did! This short story pulls you in, you will find yourself smiling . . heating up . . and then a tear rolling down your cheek!

Overall, I enjoyed the book very much and would totally recommend it for anyone looking for a few quick reads that are easy enough to follow and still offer a little emotional pull.
