UNBLOCKED (EPISODE THREE) is a page turner. I started this book last night and finished it within an hour. It is a super hot and sexy read. The characters and story line are well-developed.  Derek and Frankie are going at it hot and heavy. Their relationship is progressing , but things are grinding it to a halt. They have to both get on the same page if their relationship is going to survive. Frankie has to make a decision that could greatly impact their relationship. I love these novellas and cannot wait until the next one, to see what the decision is. I give UNBLOCKED (EPISODE THREE) 5/5 stars. I recommend this book and series to everyone.

Excerpt:

I held her wrists above her head and leaned down so she could feel my words, not just hear them. “I give you what I want, when I want – my fingers, my mouth, my tongue…” My hand dropped to my zipper. I fisted the crotch of my jeans. “Even my fucking cock. Understood?”

I expected her to pull back, but her focus seemed to soften as her eyes traveled down my stomach and settled on my hand. I released the bulge so she could get a better look at my dick.

She licked her lips. “Got it.”

I knelt on the bed and straddled her body, holding her hands against the headboard. I had made a special request for this bed, I wanted something wooden, with slats on the headboard, carved and sanded, so the finish was smooth on all four sides. I knew she could handle the rubbing, but I didn’t want her skin cut or splintered.

“You’re not going to tie me up…”

I weaved the flannel around her wrists and secured the knots to the headboard. “I’m not?” The shirt was tight enough to prevent her from moving, but loose enough to allow circulation.

She glanced at my handiwork. “You warned me that you would do this…I never thought you really would.”

“Don’t ever doubt me, Frankie. I always keep my promises.”

cherry blossom ball
Book Description
Publication Date: May 26, 2014
Vampyre Hunter – Dayamanti Karrieá and Half Fae – Freya Mackenzie have one thing in common – neither of them fit in the supernatural world.
As the annual Cherry Blossom Ball approaches, each of them receives an invite that fills them with dread.
All guests from the supernatural educational system, nicknamed the House of Alternatives –have been chosen by the highest power and once they accept the black and gold envelope they have no choice but to attend.
The reluctant women arrive at the ball and find it just as the imagined, until a murder is committed. Shock ripples through the ball, as Dayamanti and Freya are surprised by the Supernatural Councils apparent lack of interest in the crime, they become determined to find out who committed the murder and if will they strike again.
One thing you can be certain of – this year, it will be murder on the dance floor.

CHERRY BLOSSOM BALL has rich world building and well-developed characters.Dayamanti does not want to go to the cherry blossom ball, and each year she hides so she will not be given an invitation to the ball. This year she is forced from hiding when she has to take an exam in one of her classes or risk failing. Once she receives the invitation she must go, and being from the Royal House she must attend all the all the functions of a Royal. When someone is murdered at the ball Dayamanti along with Freya, another girl who did not want to attend the ball, decide to investigate the murder things are not what they seem. Freya saw a glimpse of the person who committed the murder and when they research it, they find out that the murderers are supposed to not exist anymore. This book is very well-written and I loved it. I just wish that it could have been longer. I recommend this book to everyone. I give CHERRY BLOSSOM BALL 4/5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW: THE NAME OF THE WIND BY PATRICK ROTHFUSS

They say, writers should write what they love and Patrick Rothfuss seems to do so. He love stories. Telling them is one thing but to live and tell them is astonishing. And how a writer can live in the stories?… By his imagination. Imagination is infinite. You certainly don’t have to pay for it. It is legal to use. And it’s the best thing a human has got, I believe.  The Name of the Wind . At first, I never wanted to read it. But then, when strongly recommended by one of my friend, I borrowed his copy and read it. Now I can say, I can’t wait to read the second.  The Name of the Wind  introduce us to Kvothe, a figure which is hard to ignore not because he has red hair but because the mysterious intelligence the character has.

At the start level, the book is slow for a few pages, and it took me sometime to adjust. May be I was reading after a long time. But after reading the book, I read the starting few pages again. And I must say the style used by Patrick keeps things as simple as possible and he tries to create an enclosure by his words such that if a reader is immerse in his words, he will find hard to emerge out back to reality. The book, I must say, after reading 50-70 pages is very hard to put down. Though they say, the start and the end defines a book, I must correct them, ‘their’ saying might work for a story or a novella for they are short in length but for 600 plus page novel like The Name of the Wind you need to give it some time and at least 50-70 pages might be sufficient to start being judgmental about the book. Most of the times  this will work for fantasies as they happen to be a bit bulky in the length.

As I said the story will bind you from it roots and you will be immersed in the world of Kvothe. The culture, the geography ,the background of the story and especially my favorite part, the characters, which are developed at such a level that they won’t disappoint the reader. According to one interview, Rothfuss spent 14 years in developing this trilogy and I don’t know the truth, nor am I being judgmental here.

So I would recommend this book, but then you might end up reading the trilogy.

3.5 out of 5 from me.

BOOK REVIEW: THE BOOK THIEF

The extraordinary New York Times Bestseller for 230 weeks must be on your reading list this year. This book is a treasure, a modern classic I would say. Set during the time of Nazi Germany and World War II, it tells the story about a foster girl, Liesel Meminger with a fine and an extraordinaire narrative by Death. The narration was one of the reasons I picked this book due to the immense curiosity, I can say I am completely satisfied and I have read after along time, a totally satisfying book. It leaves with a mysterious thrill which is hard to define in words and can only be experienced if you read it. The book is very well structured. It seems all perfect due to the intensive narration of the Death’s perspective. Markus Zusak is impressing in this one.

The narrative, Death, in not some kind of boring grim reaper with a scythe. He’s a jolly character, tries to enjoy himself and is always indulged in his work. His role is a strong one, and in some ways he makes himself a slave of humans – dealing with the impact of their wars and atrocities as he is always haunted by humans. A reader’s imagination also has a serious part in coping up with the characters. The other characters of Liesel Meminger, Hans Hubermann, Rudy Steiner, and Max Vandenburg are some perks of the book. Each character has its own story as always. I could not find myself falling for one character ( just like The Great Gatsby) which is a good thing as I could maintain the transparency of my readership towards the book. Though The Book Thief succeeds on the most post-modern of levels, its impact on the reader is as much due to superb old fashioned plot and characterization as anything else. It is, afterall, simply a beautiful and painful story of a young girl as she deals with an important and tragic point in history.

There is no doubt that you are not going to enjoy this story. It is one hell of a story.  The story wraps itself around you. Your mind and your heart will be stolen as it did mine. It won’t disappoint you, that’s for sure.
