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 – Resisting the Rancher by Roxanne Snopek

20140414-190647.jpgBlurb

She’s his best friend’s sister, but he’s ready to break all the rules…

Country veterinarian Celia Gamble is in trouble. A misunderstanding from her past is rearing its ugly head and the only person she can turn to is Jonah Clarke—her family’s lawyer and, as it turns out, her brother Zach’s best friend and her childhood crush. She always wanted Jonah to see her as a bona fide woman, but as a woman who’s being wrongfully blackmailed for seducing a married man? Not on her life.

Jonah is happy to help little CeeCee Gamble, if only she’d come clean about why she’s being blackmailed. But with Zach’s wedding on the horizon and Zach’s fashionista fiancée Desiree giving CeeCee a makeover, the little duckling Jonah remembers is turning into a definite swan.

And the unwritten law on sisters is clear—hands off. 

Jonah must resist Celia or lose the only true family he’s ever known. 

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed this story!  It had that big-brothers-best-friend-crush, a mystery, a whacko, and a woman with the best intentions that just can’t seem to come out on top.  That doesn’t even cover the all-grown-up version of her crush!

CeeCee is a girl that just wanted to fit in with the big boys and prove herself.  Now that she has grown up and made a HUGE mistake she just want to start over in her hometown.  Jonah has always seen CeeCee, but never considered anything like a relationship since he is Zach’s best friend. He swore to help watch out for her growing up. 

However, as Des makes CeeCee over piece by piece, he can no longer deny that she is all woman! The back and forth between the two is real, and hard, and different.  They both have very valid reasons that makes them think they can’t be together.

This story was very sweet and had so many characters that just came alive. This was not the first book in the series, but it is a stand alone story. You can bet that I will be after the rest of the books now!

REVIEW – HEiRESS, P.i. by Amanda Mahan

heiresspiIf you read the blurb for this book, I can guarantee you will get all that and MORE!  Lucy is happier playing in the dirt than glamming it up, but she will do anything to help Holden.  Yes, some of the issues stars deal with Lucy falls face first into, but the way they come about will have you rolling on the floor. 

Blurb:

Meet Lucy Hansen. She’s the richest teenager in the world – and possibly the shyest. She doesn’t flash her business to the paparazzi as she’s getting out of limos or send selfies while smoking salvia. No, Lucy hides behind her frizzy bangs, environmental causes and organic hemp-blend sweats. Her one true friend (and secret crush) Holden is the poorest kid in Beverly Hills – and probably the scrappiest. He interns for a famous private investigator, and when he asks Lucy to help him crack a case, her life turns from tame to tabloid, from glum to glam, from private to private eye. And when the trail leads directly to her hotel magnate father, it’s up to Lucy to solve the case by infiltrating Hollywood’s most elite and unwelcoming club: Celebutantes. Teens who are famous for, well… being famous.

Along the way, “LuHan” endures wardrobe malfunctions, fake romances, compromising videos-turned-YouTube hits, unflattering mug shots and – worst of all – a makeover. Now Lucy has to save her father, dodge the paparazzi, and keep her IRL ID on the DL – all while maybe, almost, possibly having her first real kiss.

If you’ve ever read the tabloids and wondered, “What was she thinking?” then HEIRESS, P.I. offers one possible answer.

Lucy is bold and fearless once she puts her mind to something.  When she makes a name for herself she goes ALL OUT!  The wardrobe malfunction that happens to Lucy had tears running down my face….from laughter!  Everything that Lucy does she does with gusto. 

I absolutely loved this story and would love to read more about Lucy!  You cannot help but love her and what she stands for.  You’ll love how Holden bribes her to do some investigating for him! This book is sweet, funny, and intense.  Some of the situations Lucy gets herself into get pretty hairy. 

Don’t miss this book!

REVIEW and SPECIAL PRICE- Between the Sheets (The Between Boyfriends Series) by Sarka-Jonae Miller!!

BTSPre-order this book today for the special price of $2.99!! This wonderful chick-lit will be released on Valentine’s Day!! The first book Between Boyfriends was just named a finalist in the MARSocial Author of the Year Competition!!

Book Description:

It’s been three years since 25-year-old Jan Weston swore off men, and her resolve isn’t what it used to be. When a family emergency diverts her travel companion to LA, a fun semester abroad in Bangkok turns into a lonely trip for one. Although she’s supposed to be studying international business at Thammasat University along with Thai massage at the famous Wat Pho, Jan finds herself studying her teacher, especially his cute butt.

But she isn’t just hot for teacher. Jan also meets an athletic Italian ready to show her a good time and an artistic Thai man who says all the right things. Can she resist the allure of dating abroad? Could she even choose which of the three she wants between the sheets? And if she does give in, can what happens in Bangkok stay in Bangkok?

As Jan struggles to finish her education amidst so many distractions, she must also deal with the loss of a friend, a deep betrayal, and news of a death in the family that could lead to an overdue reconciliation. Between The Sheets is a sensual story of making mistakes, overcoming obstacles, and finding love in the strangest of places.

MY THOUGHTS:

So we meet back up with Jan about 3 years after the first book, Between Boyfriends. She has remained true to her no dating rule. She and Becki are getting ready to study abroad for a semester in Thailand! At the last minute Becki’s grandmother has a stroke and Becki dashes home to be with her. Becki ends up having to stay behind to care for her grandmother, and Jan is left to go to Thailand ALONE! Jan thought it would be a fantastic idea when she wasn’t going alone!

At first in Thailand Jan battles depression and the urge to run home. She sticks it out and becomes close with her tutor and struggles with a wicked crush on her massage instructor.

She sticks it out and has some AMAZING experiences – both good and not so good. I assure you that you will desperately want to visit this country by the time you finish this book! The descriptions of the people, places, and way of life are captivating.

This story was a great follow-up to Between Boyfriends and I sincerely hope we get to hear about Jan and her friends for a LONG LONG time! They are so real, and deal with real issues!

REVIEW and TOUR STOP – Between Boyfriends by Sarka-Jonae Miller

BB s3At first glance, twenty-one-year-old Jan Weston has it all: a gorgeous boyfriend, fun friends, and wealthy parents who take care of all those pesky credit card bills.

Then her boyfriend dumps her, her friendships fall apart, and her parents cut her off. Suddenly without money, without a man, and without a plan, it’s time for Jan to grow up.

 Determined to get her life back on track, Jan decides it’s time to make it on her own. Can she find her way as a single lady in San Diego? Can she fix her friendships, her job prospects, and her hair? And can she keep her vow that she’ll never date again, even after she meets a guy who just might be perfect for her?

BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a sexy, hilarious story of living life, finding love, and growing up… but not necessarily in that order.

 Between Boyfriends new cover

I am so excited to be reviewing this book from Sarka-Jonae Miller!  I have been hearing about it and I was thrilled to get the chance to read it.  I just knew she would be a fabulous writer!

In the beginning of this book you are ready to roll your eyes at Jan and how whiney and immature she is.  This book is no holds barred when it comes to revealing Jan’s thoughts both good and bad.  We all have uncharitable thoughts that we would never actually say out loud, but still think them.

I absolutely loved following Jan through her humbling journey in the book.  I couldn’t wait to see where she ended up, if she would grow a conscience and start treating people decently.  I am happy to say she did……eventually….. :-)

This book takes you through her struggle to learn to fend for herself and the friends that were harsh when they needed to be and helped her get back on her feet.  I am so excited for the next book in this series to see where it goes from here, because I have a feeling that it will be even better!  This book does not have a cliffhanger, per se, but the story is definitely not over.  It has that nice wrap up with the possibility for bigger and better things!

Praise for Between Boyfriends
“This book is the ultimate chick-lit read–a light-hearted romp focused on the travails of Jan, a college student dumped by her boyfriend, an SDSU student. The moment proves an epiphany, as Jan resolves to stop dating and find fulfillment as a single woman.” – East County Magazine
Between Boyfriends “presents a unique twist on the chick lit genre.” – Hollywood & Vine magazine”Over the course of the book, Jan, who is in her early 20s, begins to grow as a person and even strikes up a true friendship with a man, a first for her.” – Rancho Santa Fe Review“Cut off by parents? Not got a boyfriend? That’s the formula for a chick lit hit.” – Indie Author Land

“The book teaches both subtle and obvious lessons about friendship, relationships, responsibility and decision-making.” – The Masquerade Crew
“Between Boyfriends is a delicious slice of chick-lit! Snappy dialogue sets this story apart from the pack as it follows a young woman who, financially cut off by her parents when she fails to attend school, learns that life is more than her Amex card, and reunites with a mother who has endured her own brand of pain.” – Jan Moran, bestselling author
“BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a great read. It’s got everything you’d expect in a chick-lit book: good friends, fun, and a little romance, but the thing Sarka-Jonae adds to this story is a journey.” – Caroline Fardig, bestselling author
I personally can’t wait to get my hands on this book!  I am quite sure you will see a review sometime in the near future!! :-)

REVIEW and RELEASE DAY!! The Reckless Engineer by Jac Wright

RecklessEngineerCoverThis book sooooo brings to mind the old saying:

“Oh! what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!”

-Walter Scott’s Marmion

Jac Wright’s poetic background comes through in this book.  This book truly weaves the story around you until you can’t stop until you have all the answers!  First I want to draw you in with the description below…….

Book Description:

Jack Connor’s lives an idyllic life by the Portsmouth seaside married to Caitlin McAllen, a stunning billionaire heiress, and working at his two jobs as the Head of Radar Engineering of Marine Electronics and as the Director of Engineering of McAllen BlackGold, his powerful father-in-law Douglas McAllen’s extreme engineering company in Oil & Gas. He loves his two sons from his first marriage and is amicably divorced from his beautiful first wife Marianne Connor. Their delicately balanced lives are shattered when sexy Michelle Williams, with whom Jack is having a secret affair and who is pregnant with his child, is found dead and Jack is arrested on suspicion for the murder.

Jeremy Stone brings London’s top defence attorney, Harry Stavers, to handle his best friend’s defence.

Who is the bald man with the tattoo of a skull seen entering the victim’s house? Who is “KC” who Caitlin makes secret calls to from an untraceable mobile? Has powerful Douglas McAllen already killed his daughter’s first partner and is he capable of killing again? Is Caitlin’s brother Ronnie McAllen’s power struggle with Jack for the control of McAllen Industries so intense that he is prepared to kill and frame his brother-in-law? Is the divorce from Jack’s first wife as amicable on her part as they believe it to be? Are his sons prepared to kill for their vast inheritance? Who are the ghosts from Caitlin’s past in Aberdeen, Scotland haunting the marriage? What is the involvement of Jack’s manager at Marine Electronics?

The cast of characters is made even more colorful by the supporting entourage: the big Scott and his gang, Hosé and Heineken, who carry out Douglas McAllen’s “troubleshooting;” McAllens’ bumbling solicitors McKinley and Magnus Laird; Caitlin McAllen’s handymen, Cossack and Levent; and Jeremy’s sidekick, the gay black actor working in the London West End.

 While Jack is charged and his murder trial proceeds in the Crown Court under barrister Harry Stavers’ expert care, Jeremy runs a race against time to find the real killer and save his friend’s life, if he is in fact innocent, in a tense tale of love, power, and ambition.

It is easy for me to see that I will be a Jac Wright fan for life.  This book had so many twists and turns!  Just when you think you have the culprit figured out, something else comes to light that damns a different person.  The author gives you some background on each character, but just enough.  Jac Wright has a knack for dropping clues in your lap at just the right moment and really keeping you on the edge of your seat.

Another thing I loved about this story was how believable it was.  It seemed like real people that ended up in some ugly situations.  I don’t think we realize how “suspicious” every day things can be when taken in the wrong context.  Jeremy’s dialogue to himself while some people were being interviewed was so entertaining and I really enjoyed his personality.  He is someone you would like to know in real life.

Also, yes we had the rich people that always have everything in order, but they worked for it.  They weren’t lounging around all day spending money on anything and everything, they were working hard and putting in a lot of hours to keep the company’s running smoothly.

Overall, this was a GREAT mystery/suspense that will keep those pages turning as fast as you can read!!  Grab your copy today!!

More about the author Jac Wright:

Jac Wright is a published poet, a published author, and an electronics engineer educated at Stanford, University College London, and Cambridge who lives and works in England. Jac studied English literature from an early age of three, developing an intense love for poetry, drama, and writing in Speech & Drama classes taken every Saturday for fourteen years, and in subsequent creative writing classes taken during the university years. A published poet, Jac’s first passion was for literary fiction and poetry writing as well as for the dramatic arts. You will find these influences in the poetic imagery and prose, as well as the in the dramatic scene setting and deep character creation in his writing.

These passions – for poetry, drama, literary fiction, and electronic engineering – have been combined to create the first book in the literary suspense series, The Reckless Engineer. There are millions of professionals in high-tech corporate environments who work in thousands of cities in the US, the UK, and the world such as engineers, technicians, technical managers, investment bankers, and corporate lawyers. High drama, power struggles, and human interest stories play out in the arena every day. Yet there are hardly any books that tell their stories; there are not many books that they can identify with. Jac feels compelled to tell their stories in The Reckless Engineer series.

Jac also writes the literary short fiction series, Summerset Tales, in which Wright explores characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances in the semi-fictional region of contemporary England called Summerset, partly the region that Thomas Hardy called Wessex. Some of the tales have an added element of suspense. The collection is published serially in the tradition of Charles Dickens’ The Pickwick Papers and Thomas Hardy’s Wessex Tales. The first tale, The Closet, accompanies the first title in the author’s full-length book, The Reckless Engineer.
