BOOK REVIEW- GONE FOR YOU BY JAYNE FROST


Book Description
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.

Until her…

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas.

So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.

Simple, right?

Note: You won’t need to turn up the heat—Sixth Street Bands Romances have plenty of steamy fun. This story can be read as a stand-alone but is part of the Sixth Street Bands music scene.

I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.

GONE FOR YOU is a great start to this series. The characters and story line are very well-developed. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. Cameron is part of the band Caged, and when he meets Lily, he knows he has to have her. Lily doesn’t know what to do with Cameron, but for one weekend she will follow her heart. This is such a great book, and I recommend it to everyone. This is a sweet and funny story that you will be rooting for them to get together. I give GONE FOR YOU 5/5 STARS.

CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE BOOK REVIEW- STILL THE ONE BY JILL SHALVIS

STILL THE ONE
Book Description
Publication Date: April 7, 2015
Love is a dare in the sexy new romance by the award-winning New York Times bestselling author of the Animal Magnetism novels and the Lucky Harbor series…

Darcy Stone is game for anything—except sexy Navy vet and physical therapist AJ Colten, the guy who’d rejected her when she’d needed him most. Now the shoe is on the other foot and he needs her to play nice and help him secure grants for his patients. Unfortunately Darcy can’t refuse. She needs the money to fund her passion project: rescuing S&R dogs and placing them with emotionally wounded soldiers.

AJ admits it—Darcy is irresistible. But he’s already been battle-scarred by a strong-willed, vivacious, adventurous woman like Darcy, and he’s not making the same mistake twice—until he and Darcy are forced to fake a relationship. Growing closer than they’d ever imagined possible, Darcy and AJ have to ask themselves: how much between them is pretend? What’s the real thing? And where does it go from here?

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

STILL THE ONE is a hit for Jill Shalvis. The characters and story line are well-developed. Darcy has always pushed people away, because if she got too close they would always leave her. AJ is different, he has been there for her. He was there after her accident and has been there for her since. They are thrown together and things get hot and heavy. AJ has had feelings for Darcy for a while. This is such a great book. I loved reading this book, and recommend it to everyone. I give STILL THE ONE 5/ 5 STARS.

The Ashley Parker series. Plague Town, Plague nation, Plague World.  This is a series kind of like the Walking Dead. The first book  started out a little slow, but picked up later.

  1. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

I really don’t have one from when I was younger, only one from when I was in High School. I was reading in my room on my bed., I was so engrossed in the book by David Eddings. There was this part where they were fighting in the woods and the wizard or sorcerer made the branches and twigs come to life on the floor of the woods. They were grabbing at the heroes, and my brother came in put his hand on my leg and scared the crap out of me. I thought the branches had come out of the book and grabbed me.

A book of poetry.

  1. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

The complete works of William Shakespeare.

  1. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

I don’t think I have a favorite word.

  1. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

Definitely a nerd. I have the whole comic book collection and everything.

  1. Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Fairies. They are so noble and their cast system is really fascinating.

  1. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Shapeshifters. The ability to change into something else would be great. To fly or run really fast, or the freedom to roam around with no worries.

  1. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Werewolves. I think the ability to talk to other pack members without actually talking would be a great thing to have.

  1. Zombies or Vampires? Why?

Vampires. I could not do that mindless, shambling that zombies do. With Vampires you would not have to worry about decomposing and smelling bad.

  1. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

Forbidden love. I can barely handle one love, and two would be too much for me.

  1. And finally: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

Action packed with a few love scenes mixed in. A full on romance kinda bores me, I like action in it with some humor thrown in also.

Thanks again April! This was a lot of fun!

URBAN FANTASY BOOK REVIEW- RAISING CAIN BY KELLI IRELAND


Book Description
Publication Date: April 7, 2015
“If you love reading quirky humor, steamy scenes, and strong female characters, you’re going to love reading Kelli Ireland! Ireland is a gifted storyteller who keeps readers enthralled with her unique voice and clever writing. I love her!”
New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione

Hiding places are scarce when both Heaven and Hell intend to find you.

Dani Fayel’s backbreaking job as a stable hand at The Freaks’ Fair isn’t glamorous, but for someone looking to keep to the shadows? It’s perfect. Neither paranormal freaks nor human norms ever notice her. But when Dani is forced to either let a child die in order to maintain her anonymity or choose to save him and risk being discovered, she finds herself unwillingly thrust into the spotlight.

Cain, Hell’s premier assassin and a predatory incubus, is close to fulfilling his final contract and earning his freedom. Hired by the Archangel of Death to find his daughter, Cain follows her trail to the Fair. He works undercover, certain his mark is inside one of the portable canopies or traveling cages. Dead or alive, she equals his ticket to freedom.

When Cain’s objective is divulged, Dani realizes she can’t outrun her destiny. As the fabled Key—the one soul with absolute free will who is tied to the three realms of Heaven, Earth and Hell—only she is capable of opening the gates for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Whoever frees the Horsemen allegedly commands them. Now both Heaven and Hell are vying for her allegiance, and there are no limits as to how dirty they’ll fight to obtain it. With Hell raining indiscriminate chaos as Heaven maneuvers its players around her, Dani realizes her would-be assassin may be the only man capable of helping her survive.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

RAISING CAIN is a great start to this urban fantasy. The characters and story line are well-developed. Dani has been in foster homes since she was eight years old. She was kicked out of the foster home when she was 23 years old. She has been with the Freak’s Fair since. Now Demons are coming after her, for she is The Key. I loved this book and Dani’s struggle with the knowledge that she is The Key.  Now she has to try to stay alive until she claims what side she is on Team Sheol, or Team Malkuth. She has to choose freely to maintain the balance of choice and the free will of mankind. I recommend this book to everyone and cannot wait until the next book to see what happens. I give RAISING CAIN 5/5 STARS.
