Oh.My.Goodness. Troublemaker by Liliana Hart – Need I Say More?? EXCEPTIONAL!

W.O.W. Those who know me, know not too many titles inspire that type of response from me, but Liliana Hart does. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. If you have never read one of her books, go check them out! The first book in each of her series is FREE! Aaaaaand they are standalone books! Really there is no reason not to! ☺️

  
  
Beckett and Marnie are an amazing pair of people. Beckett has lived a relatively privileged life, but was raised right. He works hard does what needs to be done. It is so rare to see that in people today! 

Marnie was raised in hell. No other way to put it. The thing about a Liliana Hart book is that you cannot wait to see what happens, but you want more of everything. Even the bad stuff if it means you get to spend more time with the characters. 

Liliana has an amazing ability to create characters that are real people. They are not glorified and made to be perfect, they are just people doing the best they can with what they have. The connections created between the characters is so powerful you can feel what they feel. I find myself able to relate to one of the main characters and dive into that world every single time. I half expect to be able to go to Surrender and visit them! 

I also love that I don’t HAVE to have read the other books to enjoy any one of the novels. It is an awful lot of fun to read them in order, though and watch the characters grow and develop even farther. 

*I was given an advanced copy for review.

  
  
Marnie Whitlock has never known what it’s like to be normal. Her ability to see the future and people’s innermost thoughts makes her an outcast—feared—loathed. Even by her own parents. And her father is determined to beat the curse out of her. Her only chance for survival is to escape Surrender.  

Beckett Hamilton has loved Marnie since they were kids, but one horrible night destroyed any future he’d hoped for. Now Marnie was back in Surrender, and picking up where they left off is the only thing on his mind. He finds out quickly that some hearts take longer to heal, and not everyone that’s broken can be fixed. But loving Marnie isn’t an option—it’s his destiny.

  
Troublemaker releases February 16th! Preorder it now!!

Also please note that Troublemaker is part of a series but can be read as a standalone! Check out Liliana’s website (link below) to see more information on this series and her others (which are equally fabulous). Troublemaker is also part of a special project where Liliana had 5 other authors join in and tell a story inside the Mackenzie world! 

   
 

TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM TROUBLEMAKER – Liliana Hart is a New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly Bestselling Author of more than 40 titles. After starting her first novel her freshman year of college, she immediately became addicted to writing and knew she’d found what she was meant to do with her life. She has no idea why she majored in music. 

Since self-publishing in June of 2011, Liliana has sold more than 4 million ebooks and been translated into eight languages. She’s appeared at #1 on lists all over the world and all three of her series have appeared on the New York Times list. Liliana is a sought after speaker and she’s given keynote speeches and self-publishing workshops to standing-room-only crowds from California to New York to London. 

Liliana can almost always be found at her computer writing or on the road giving workshops for SilverHart International, a company she founded with her husband, Scott Silverii, where they provide law enforcement, military, and fire resources for writers so they can write it right. Liliana is a recent transplant to Southern Louisiana, where she’s getting used to the humidity and hurricane season, and plotting murders (for her books, of course).

*NEW REVIEW (REPOST) – Bad Medicine (The Lizzie Hart Mysteries) by Caroline Fardig

Reposting with images and buy links! Sorry all!

 

What do a smokin’ hot detective, an evil chiropractor, and a couple of blind dates from hell have in common?

Lizzie has to wrangle them all in the third book of THE LIZZIE HART MYSTERIES series!

  

MY THOUGHTS 😎💕    

Oh man Caroline Fardig is one of my all time favorites!!! This is the third book in The Lizzie Hart Mysteries and you will NOT be disappointed!! Lizzie is seriously one of my favorite reluctant sleuths. That girl can find trouble anywhere…and I’m pretty sure she’s the origin of Murphy’s Law…LOL However it comes to be, she puts her heart and soul into everything she does and somehow it works out as it should. Thank goodness because once you bond with Lizzie you will be comparing her to other detectives and asking yourself “What would Lizzie do?” I’m really not kidding…I read a similar genre book right after Bad Medicine and all I could do was compare that heroine to Lizzie 😊

BLURB

Lizzie Hart is overjoyed that six whole months have passed without a single murder in the sleepy town of Liberty. It’s also been six months since Blake Morgan heartlessly dumped her, but she’s determined to get over him. She’s slimmed down, ready to party, and injury-free, except for a little nagging pain in her ankle. She’s also very single, but her friends are doing everything in their power to fix that—including setting her up on one disastrous blind date after another.  

Lizzie’s reprieve is short-lived when an old friend of hers is found dead from an apparent drug overdose. She wants to write it off as bad behavior after having seen the guy cheating on his wife with the new chiropractor in town. However, when she sees that same chiropractor playing doctor with another man who ends up dead, she worries there could be murder afoot.

Doing her best to stay on the right side of the law this time, Lizzie decides to go straight to the police with her suspicions. Unfortunately, the only cop available to speak with her is the stern yet hot new detective who has already given her a traffic ticket and a reprimand for public intoxication. Not surprisingly, he brushes her off, leaving her no choice but to begin snooping on her own. Lizzie soon learns she’s going to need help to get to the bottom of this mystery, but her best partner in crime solving, Blake, has turned into her worst enemy.  

Can Lizzie and Blake find a way to work together to catch the killer…or will they kill each other first?

An Apology?!? Oh yes a big one my friends…

First, I want to give a HUGE apology and thank you to those of you that did not give up on me in my absence!
Secondly, for those that have sent in requests (and heard NOTHING) and attempted to contact me (and heard NOTHING) I WILL be getting back to you very soon.

When I started this blog it was my intention for it to be a place that my friend and I could escape and daydream and brag and boast about our favorite authors and books.  I absolutely LOVE discovering a new (or just new to me) author and the amazing things that they are able to put down in writing.  Joe Cool Review has been up and running for a little over a year now and I am so thankful to have a way to share with so many of you!

I have learned a ridiculous amount about how hard it is for them and the unbelievable hurdles they have to jump through to get their books seen by the public.  I have also discovered some authors that are truly just beginning and hope that my feedback has helped them grow as writers.

If I am offered a book that I agree to review, I will review that book honestly.  You may have noticed that pretty much everything you see on my site gets 5 stars from me, yeah? Well, there are actually a good number that you don’t see.  The reason for that is I prefer to send a note to the author and give my honest review privately if I can’t get behind it 100%.  I will absolutely still post reviews on the book’s sites (Amazon, BN, etc.) but I do try to reserve the blog for my absolute favorites.

The hardest part? Catching up!!  I had a library on my NOOK of nearly 1000 books when I began the blog and it was my full intention to go back and really rave about my absolute favorite authors.  The sad thing is, I haven’t really had time (not many of us do these days I don’t think).

So now for the biggest reason behind my lackluster performance as a blogger so far….  I have a wonderful family,  a lot of really great friends, and a REALLY hard time saying no.  So, I have been swept up in a close friend’s complicated life for nearly a year and we have been unable to use the blog as we had hoped.  I finally have had to take a step back and let her know that I can’t continue to be a crutch for her.  I fear I have only been making things worse by giving her an out whenever and wherever.  I am still her friend and I can still be there for her, but my life was getting lost in the process.  She has come so far and has such a good grip on it now that she is ready to stand on her own, I just have to let her. :-)

Ever been there?  Let me tell you how much it makes you appreciate the life you have and the people in it.  I am truly blessed and busy and yet I realized I need this blog.  I need to take the time to dive into my books and share them with all of you!!

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.” ~Paul Boese

I hope that saying is true and those of you that are still with me will believe that I am truly sorry and will do my best not to let it happen again.  I am officially the only one reading the books and posting reviews; so it may take some time, but if I promised it to you, it will be done.

I appreciate each of you that read and respond to my posts in any way and I am making it my goal to return the favor more than I have been doing.  I have read so many awesome books, by really outstanding writers, and I will continue to give you reviews, but on a MUCH more consistent basis!!

Lastly, if for some reason I need to go dark again for any length of time I will send out a message to let you know and I will make sure my previous promises are fulfilled.  However, I think that I need this blog and the outlet it provides me to keep myself grounded.  Grounded in fiction is kind of an oxymoron, I think….but hopefully you know what I mean!

So please feel free to contact me using the contact page on this blog and I will get back to you.  I’m not signing up for any blog tours or anything else like that right now (SORRY AGAIN), but feel free to submit your book info to me and I will get back to you.  I warn you I have a pretty big backlog at the moment, so I’m afraid I won’t get to anything new for a while yet.  I will respond to any requests with a rough estimate of when I think I can have my review posted and you can decide if you would like me to add you to the list.

FUTURE NOTES

I am also working on a page on this blog that will list my favorite authors and quick links to their books and/or websites.  I realize this may be a somewhat large undertaking, because I have a HUGE imagination and can get into almost any book I pick up…LOL

REVIEW – FANTASY – Seducer Fey (Genetic Fey Series Book 1) by Cullyn Royson

SeducerFeyCoverI wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this book, but it was addictive!!  I’m always a little worried when I begin a fantasy book, because it is not my usual genre.  I need the book to give me background and explain things without going on and on.  This book more than delivered!!  It explained in such a way that I felt I had an understanding of the characters, but also left room for me to discover more unique qualities and abilities throughout the entire book!  That is so rare!  Let’s begin with the book’s blurb:

When the fairies of Celtic mythology are combined with genetic engineering, youth and charisma can be sold.

The mid-twenty-first century has brought about advancements for social justice and genetic engineering. Fluid gender identity and sexuality are widely accepted in society. The scientific quest for immortality is more popular than ever. Physical appeal, however, isn’t just about youthfulness. Any researcher who discovers the secret to charisma will make millions.

During a prospective college visit to Dalhousie University, Danny and her crush, Cassidy, are invited to the home of an eerily captivating student named Taban. There Danny learns that her DNA could be used to create a form of genetic therapy to give people longer lives for a hefty price. Danny’s life is at risk because her rights to her DNA would get in the way of this plan. Cassidy vows to protect her friend. Unfortunately for the two young women, Taban has other motives.

While this book was primarily about Danny and journey to learn more about herself and her genetics, I really felt most of the characters had starring roles.  We really were able to get into the heads of each character and learn quite a bit about who they are, what they can do,  and how they think.  I feel like I could befriend each one and that includes Donovan, who doesn’t say much. :-)

I really loved the strong friendship between Danny and Cassidy.  It was true and really could withstand anything.   From the beginning it is clear that Danny is a bit immature when compared to Cassidy, but it fit perfectly within the friendship and what we learn in this book.  I liked that no matter the events happening, neither friend ever doubted the other and knew they could count on each other.  Isn’t that what we all hope for?!?

One of the things I love about reading is getting lost in the story and connecting with the characters.  In this book I couldn’t decide who I wanted to know more about!  I really loved that sexuality was completely open and acceptable in this book.  Essentially, anything goes and nothing is judged.  LOVE THAT!  I don’t know how to explain it so it’ll make sense and not offend anyone so you are just going to have to grab it up to see for yourself!  Suffice to say that nothing was predictable!

I am very happy this is only book 1 and I cannot wait to read more about these amazing characters!!

REVIEW and GIVEAWAY – November Foxtrot (Book 2 Rhythm of the Heart Series) by Scarlett Jade!!

20140509-072105.jpg

Book 2 in the Rhythm of the Heart Series. Book 1, September Tango, is free on ALL platforms!

Zoe is left all alone in Colorado when Calvin returns to Afghanistan. And now, as the weeks pass, she has a secret…a secret that could crumble the precarious foundation of their relationship. As Christmas comes one shock after another leaves everything hanging in the balance… Life, death, and hope…Will they be able to ring in the New Year in happiness, or will the holidays be ruined?

My Thoughts

I really, really, REALLY love this series! It’s just so very real and honest. We are with Zoe as she battles the loneliness and depression of being in a strange place with no one while Calvin is in Afghanistan. It’s not pretty or romantic; it is how I imagine I would be if my husband was serving. You have a bone deep pride that he would serve his country, but the worry and loneliness is crippling.

The other thing I love about this series is that there is not a huge cliff hanger at the end. Yes we definitely want to know what happens to the couple, but we still get an OK for now ending. Thank you Scarlett Jade for not ripping out my heart! J I am absolutely on the edge of my seat for February Waltz!!

Grab November Foxtrot today and remember that the first book September Tango is FREE!!!

REVIEW – Is This All There Is? by Patricia Mann

ITATICoverBlurb

Beth Thomas’ seemingly perfect life is about to take a detour. At thirty-five, she’s married to her college sweetheart, has two adorable kids, and finds fulfillment teaching part time at the local university.

But when a friend persuades her to go dancing on a rare night out, a chance meeting with a handsome former student changes the course of her life. Loud music, too much to drink, and the thrill of feeling young again lead to an unforgettable kiss that was never supposed to happen. Beth feels wanted again, listened to, cared for, but she knows it’s wrong.

She tries to put the memory behind her, but he pursues her, drawing Beth back to temptation. As she travels deeper into Dave’s world, Beth struggles to choose between what her mind says is right and what she truly craves.

My thoughts

This book raises so many conflicting feelings!! Let me begin by saying this book is an amazing piece of literature. The writing style was so smooth and logical. I love a book like this because I can really focus on the characters and get inside the story. And oh what a story it was.

So…..I don’t know how you feel about adultery, but I am against it. I know there are some out there that don’t have strong feelings one way or another, but I have pretty strong beliefs about it. That being said, I was able to empathize with Beth and see how and why this was happening to her. I don’t think there is a better feeling than having a author that can take something I am so passionate about (no pun intended J) and bring me around to her way of thinking. This was HUGE for me. I was worried I would not be able to get over my feelings on the matter and really feel the character.

By the end I was thankful for Beth, but mad at her too. It was interesting. I have literally been sitting on this book for a while now because I couldn’t quit put my feelings together about it. There is not a doubt in my mind that I loved this book and I would recommend it to ANY WOMAN (maybe even some men). You need to sit down and push everything else away and really dig into this book!
