I BOUGHT THE NEW KIM HARRISON NOVEL

I am a big fan of Kim Harrison and her Rachel Morgan series. I am excited about reading THE UNDEAD POOL, the only snag right now is that I have to finish the book that I am in the middle of reading. I am reading Jennifer Estep’s THE SPIDER. So far it is pretty good. Here lately I have been buying books on my kindle, because I have been running out of room to put books on my shelves. I had to have Kim Harrison’s in hardback, so I would have it for my collection.

As we get closer and closer to the end of the series, I catch myself wishing that the story would not end. In my mind I know that it has to end, for if we let it continue then the story will just become stale and repetitious. We as fans don’t want that to happen to a great story. Another of my favorite authors that I am looking forward to in March is Patricia Briggs. She has a new Mercy Thompson book coming out March 4, called NIGHT BROKEN. March for me has always been a big new release month for my favorite authors. I usually pick up about 15 books in this month alone. I usually save up for this month, so I can get the books that I have been waiting a year for. Well Charlie and me are tired and I think we will go to bed. It is also time for more sinus medicine for my headache that I cannot get rid of for the past 3 days. So I will tell you good night.

MY DAYS NEVER WORK OUT THE WAY I WANT THEM TO.

Here lately it seems that everyday I try to play my days off, with what I need to do. Every day it seems those plans just fly out the window, and be plans take their place with me not even looking.

When I go to do what I need to do, and I always tell myself, “This is not what I planned on doing today!”

We always tell ourselves that we need to just quit planning things out and we won’t be disappointed when we don’t go through wit our plan’s. Like today, I wanted to finish putting up shelves in my bedroom. I finally picked up the shelf brackets a few weeks ago and wanted to finish putting them up. GUESS WHAT? They are still in the floor waiting for me to put them up. After I finished making a pie for GRANDMA and making two fresh loaves of bread, I did not want to put up shelves. Also I have been planning to have my taxes done , so I can get them done and over with. So far they are still in my bag not done. I will try at them done tomorrow.

I try not to plan my days for I know they will usually change, for it never fails that omeone wants to go with you. Well I better go,before I fall asleep while I am writing this post. GOODNIGHT.

BEAR MEETS GIRL BY SHELLY LAURENSTON BOOK REVIEW

Book Description

         Publication Date:         March 27, 2012

He’s big, burly, and way smarter than your average shapeshifting bear. He’s also about to get trapped by own his game…Lou Crushek is a reasonable, mellow, easygoing kind of guy. But once someone starts killing the scumbags he works so hard to bust, that really gets under his fur. Especially when that someone is a curvy she-tiger with a skill set that’s turning Crush’s lone-bear world upside down – and bringing his passion out of hibernation…As a member of an elite feline protection unit, Marcella Malone has no problem body-dropping anyone who hunts her kind. But Crush is proving one major pain in her gorgeous tail. The only reason she’s joined forces with him is to track down the wealthy human who’s got her entire species in his ruthless sights. It sure isn’t because Crush’s stubborn and contrary attitude is rubbing Cella in all the right ways…

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON.

Lou “Crush” Crushek is being transferred to be partnered up with Dez and her police force. Crush has never liked change until Marcella “Cella” Malone, enforcer for the shifter hockey team, and contractor for KZS, entered his life.  She turned his quiet bear life upside down. These two are complete opposites. Cella likes a good down and dirty bare-knuckle brawl, and Crush likes a quite day at home. When you put these two together you have chaos, and sexy, hot scenes. In BEAR MEETS GIRL, the characters and story line are well-developed. In true Shelly Laurenston fashion, you have the snappy dialogue, witt, and sarcastic humor. There is some laugh out loud moments. I never get tired of reading a Shelly Laurenston book. I loved BEAR MEETS GIRL, and I give it 4/5 stars.

Don’t forget on March 25, 2014 Bite Me (The Pride Series) will be released. I was fortunate to be given an ARC copy of this book, Review forthcoming, and all I have to say at the moment is you will love it. There seems to be a lot more humor in BITE ME, THAT I FOUND MYSELF LAUGHING IN THE BREAKROOM AT WORK A LOT MORE THAN USUAL. JUST BE PREPARED.

LAID BEAR BY MARINA MADDIX (KINDLE EDITION) REVIEW

Book Description

         Publication Date:         August 19, 2013
#1 BESTSELLER IN SHIFTER ROMANCE!
Curvy girl Bethany Mills can’t believe her good fortune when her new neighbor turns out to be devastatingly hot. But someone that gorgeous could never fall for someone like her…could he? A charming personality and appreciation for sappy music aren’t the only things Maximilian Pearce is hiding, and just when Bethany thinks she might get her very own happily ever after, a shocking revelation forces her to make a heartbreaking choice.
A 26,000-word novella from Marina Maddix
EXCERPT: Max set his beer on the counter and moved into her personal space. She backed up until she was pressed against the wall, the hideous African mask next to her head laughing at her. He planted his hands on either side of her and leaned in as close as he could without touching her.
His breath was a whisper in her ear, shivers of delight and desire standing the hairs on the nape of her neck on end. The tips of her breasts could almost feel the warmth of his chest — longed to feel it — and his musk confused her senses.
“Don’t you know?” he breathed into her ear. His cheek brushed her hair, and a lump rose in her throat. This can’t be happening, she thought. Why the hell not? screamed Paul’s voice in her head. He was right. Why the hell not?
Her breath coming in shallow bursts and her heart thumping against her ribcage, Bethany lifted her face to his, meeting his hypnotic gaze. “Tell me,” she whispered.
His luscious full lips curved upward. “Because from the moment I saw you, I knew it was you I wanted.”
Bethany groaned at his words and pressed her body into his, drawing a matching groan from him. All thought left her brain as their lips touched.
Max pushed her back against the wall, as his fingers buried themselves in her hair. His mouth consumed hers, leaving her breathless and quivering with lust. A well of emotion bubbled inside of her, making her head spin and her heart pound uncontrollably. Never before had she felt this way about someone, especially someone she barely knew. She clutched at his shoulders and biceps, reveling in their bulk and reassuring herself that she wasn’t dreaming. She was having a hard time believing those arms were wrapped around her.
And then they weren’t.
Bethany was left swaying against the wall when Max pulled himself away from her. It was clearly by sheer force of will because his desire for her was quite evident at the front of his jeans. She blinked in confusion.
She parted her lips to ask what had happened when he leaned in, gave her a peck and smiled. “Ready to eat?”
BOOK DESCRIPTION AND EXCERPT COURTESY OF AMAZON.
It takes more than your average bear to love a woman with curves. Bethany is insecure about her plus size body, When she first meets Max she does not believe he would be interested in someone as curvy as her. When she sees him at her friends party with another woman, she believes he already has a girlfriend. She leaves the party and consoles herself with a pint of ice cream. When he notices that she had left the party, he follows her home.
When Bethany goes over to his place the next day for a late afternoon barbecue, she asks him about the Ursula(the woman he was with).  He lets her know that he has no girlfriend, and the woman that he was with was set up by his uncle to meet her for coffee and then turned into going to her co-worker’s party. Max also lets her know that he has wanted her from the moment he saw her. This book was sexy, fun, and a quick read. I loved the characters and the story line, they were very well-developed. I loved Max, he was so yummy, and hot. I just wished it was longer than 126 pages, so I give it 4/5 stars.

BLACK ARTS BY FAITH HUNTER BOOK REVIEW

Book Description

         Publication Date:         January 7, 2014
The New York Times bestseller
Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who always takes care of her own—no matter the cost….
When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace.
Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy—one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
Molly has finally forgiven Jane for killing her sister, so when something happens to her magic she knows that Jane will know who can help fix her problem. On her way to see Jane in New Orleans, Molly is kidnapped out of her hotel room before she can contact Jane when she hits town. Now Evan Trueblood, Molly’s husband, is in town thinking that Jane is deliberately keeping Molly from him. He is ready to blow her house down with gale force winds.  When some of Katie’s ladies, Bliss and Rachael go missing, she has to find them before something happens to them.
Jane’s week just keeps getting better and better, when Vamps start turning up true dead and all that is left is ash. It seems no one knows how it is happening. Leo also informs Jane that she will be the Enforcer for the Gather that will be hosted in New Orleans at the end of the week. Now she has a Gather to get ready for, find Molly, Rachael, and Bliss before something happens to them. Oh, and did I mention that Molly’s magic had turned into death magic. If Jane does not find her by a certain time frame she could die!
This series gets better and better as it progresses. The characters and story lines are well-developed, and I just love the characters. Some of the Minor characters in this book almost steal the show, like Molly’s kids(Angie and Evan Jr.), they are adorable. Faith Hunter delivers another awesome installment to her Jane Yellowrock series. I give Black Arts 5/5 stars, and recommend you start reading it today . If you have not read the series definitely start reading it, you will not be disappointed. The conversations that she has with Beast, the soul of the mountain lion within her, is sometimes  quite funny.
The first book in the series is  Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock, Book 1)
