RELEASE DAY BLITZ- I DO BY A.J. PINE

 

You are cordially invited to celebrate the release of I DO!
 
Duncan McAllister is marrying Elaina Tripoli tomorrow. Except—he’s missing. Jordan, Noah, Griffin, Maggie, and Miles arrive in Greece for the festivities to find frantic messages from both the bride and groom. Noah and Griffin set off to find Duncan while Jordan, Maggie, and Miles try to salvage what should be a day of celebration before the wedding.
But the Americans have their own baggage. Noah’s got a surprise planned for Jordan that has to go perfectly. Griffin’s keeping life-changing news from Maggie. And Miles—well, he wasn’t looking for love on this trip until a Greek sous chef named Alex rocks his world.
The race is on for Duncan to make it back to Elaina before she decides not to take him back at all. For Noah to make sure his monumental plan goes off without a hitch. For Griffin to tell Maggie the truth without losing her. For Miles to admit that letting himself fall in love is worth the risk.
Happily Ever After waits at the finish line…if the four couples can make it on time.

REVIEW – OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS BY KRISTI CHARISH


The wild second adventure for unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world—from the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish. For fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and the like.

Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl, international antiquities thief for hire, is settling into her new contract job for Vegas mogul Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon with a penchant for ancient, supernatural artifacts. And now he has his sights set on some treasures of the mysterious Syrian City of the Dead that are sitting in a recluse’s private collection.

There’s just one wrinkle. To stop the resurrection of an undead army that could wreak havoc on Los Angeles, Owl must break into a heavily guarded archaeological sight in one of the most volatile regions in the world. A detour through Libya and a run-in with Somali pirates sends the clock ticking hastily toward total paranormal disaster.

Meanwhile, Alexander and the Paris vampires have stopped stalking Owl’s apartment, but they have by no means forgotten their death grudge against her. To top everything off, Owl finds out the hard way that there is nothing heavenly about the City of Angels..

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

OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS just gets better, and better. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Owl is in trouble again. The IAA is after her for stealing several artifacts, but there is one catch, she did not do it. Yes, she stole a few, but not the ones they are accusing her for. She escapes Egypt and is determined to find who is out there stealing artifact in her name. After careful research they trace it back to the city of the dead. Someone is stealing cursed artifacts and selling them. Now, Owl must return those artifacts. During one of her retrievals, she accidentally touches one of the artifacts and is cursed. Now the clock is ticking and she must find a way to lift the curse or die. Oh, and she has to stop the people stealing the artifacts also. I love this series!! It is like Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider all in one. I also love her cat Captain, he steals the show. If you have not picked up the first book in this series, I really urge you to do so. You will love it. I give OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS 5/5 STARS.

Adult Paranormal BOOK REVIEW- THE LOST SOULS DATING AGENCY BY SUNEETI REKHARI


Book Description
Publication Date: January 1, 2015
A fresh, exciting, funny, fabulous take on New Adult Paranormal about an enterprising matchmaker…and her paranormal clientele.

She started out as just an ordinary university student, but the sudden and unexpected inheritance of an unused warehouse on the industrial side of town throws Shalini’s life plan askew.

Drawing from her strengths, she decides to set up a matchmaking business, helping the lonely to find a soulmate. But something unusual happens, something unexpected—her first client doesn’t fit the regular profile. Victor is dark, handsome, emotionally available…and a vampire.

Suddenly Shalini’s already disrupted world becomes a place where rules no longer apply. She must learn to adapt to her new occupation of finding The One for a prospective clientele of vampires, shape-shifters, and other beings more likely to bite first and ask questions later. And there are those out there who are less than happy with her entrepreneurial spirit.

But just as Shalini begins to think she can cope with anything, she discovers that she has bitten off more than she can chew, and played with powerful forces that have the potential to not only destroy the Lost Souls Dating Agency—but Shalini herself.

SCI-FI BOOK REVIEW- ARTIFICIAL ABSOLUTE BY MARY FAN

Book Description
Publication Date: February 21, 2013
Jane Colt is just another recent college grad working as an Interstellar Confederation office drone—until the day she witnesses her best friend, Adam, kidnapped by a mysterious criminal. An extensive cover-up thwarts her efforts to report the crime, shaking her trust in the authorities. Only her older brother, Devin, believes her account.

Devin hopes to leave behind his violent past and find peace in a marriage to the woman he loves. That hope shatters when he discovers a shocking secret that causes him to be framed for murder.

With little more than a cocky attitude, Jane leaves everything she knows to flee with Devin, racing through the most lawless corners of the galaxy as she searches for Adam and proof of her brother’s innocence. Her journey uncovers truths about both of them, leading her to wonder just how much she doesn’t know about the people she loves.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

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

ARTIFICIAL ABSOLUTES is a great story. It has well-developed story line and characters. The action is a page turner and you don’t know what could happen. The story starts off with Devin and getting ready to propose to his girlfriend, when he surprises her at home and he sees that she pauses as if she is trying to find the right response like a robot. He then knows something is wrong with her and tries to find out what is going on. The story then goes to Jane, Devin’s sister, and her relationship with Adam. When she goes to his room at the temple, she sees that Adam is unconscious and being carried away by a robot. Things spiral out of control after that and Jane and Devin are fleeing for their lives and trying to find what has happened to Devin’s girlfriend and Jane’s friend Adam. I really loved this book and I give ARTIFICIAL ABSOLUTES 5/5 STARS. This is one author I will keep my eye on.
