good book and characters
Served Cold (Best Revenge) - Marie Harte

In HS Jack and Ann were always together. But then Jack chose to break up with Ann in the cafeteria in front of everyone to break up with Ann for the class floozie. Ann was devastated. What Jack and Ann didn’t know  others worked together to break Jack and Ann up and making Jack believe Ann had cheated on him.   Around twelve years later Jack moved back to town and was staying. Jack had never got over Ann.Jack wants to get reacquainted  with Ann. Ann and Jack had no contact since he broke up with her. Ann just happens to be Jack’s nephews elementary school teacher. One night as Ann and her three best friends Maya and Riley were having someone they talked about Ann seeing Jack again, get him to fall for her and then dump him. Ann thought revenge would be good.  Ann feels she needs closure and to know what had happened to make Jack dump her and the way he did it. Jack and Ann’s chemistry started right back up when they got together. Jack also knew he wanted Ann back. Ann really tries for revenge but she is really too nice of a person. Also Ann finds she isn’t over Jack. But then Jack finds out the real reason Ann had started seeing him again but also why she had needed him so much before he had dumped her.

I really enjoyed reading this book . I loved the plot and pace. I really liked Jack and Ann together. I liked how Jack wined and dined Ann to try to get her back. I didn’t like how Jack and Ann made it seem what happened back in HS wasn’t really that bad. I really liked how Maya is blackmailed again to date Dex. There was a little too much sex in this for me. I did laugh while reading this. I also loved the twists and turns and the characters and I recommend. I wish I could have rated this 4.5

Dex had a thing for Maya back in HS and a geeky  Dex had blackmailed Maya into going to prom with him and she actually enjoyed himself. Maya is used to being in charge There is a strong chemistry between Maya and Dex. Once Dex slept with Maya he wanted to share all his fantasies with her. Especially since Maya is used to being in charge. Dex is no longer that geeky boy the Marines had a way of changing that and letting him hone himself.

I enjoyed this book a lot. I liked the pace and the plot. And this even made me laugh out loud which is always good. I liked the dual POVs shown in this book. I felt this was fairly realistic. I love how Maya and Dex bring the beat out in each other. I loved Maya and Dex together . this kept my attention and I didn’t want to put it down.I really loved the friendship between Maya, Ann and Riley. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend. I wish I could rate this 4.5.

not sure how I feel about this one!
The Night Realm - Annette Marie
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. I'm going to struggle with this review, because I'm not really sure I liked it. I KNOW I did not DISLIKE it, I just don't know if I did, if that makes any sense! Clio is exile on Earth, her brother Bastian visits and asked Clio to use her skill, her very UNIQUE skill to get them ahead in a possible war with their neighbours who plan to invade. Clio is a nymph who can see magic. She can replicate anything she sees, so a trip to the Underworld to see what spells they have for sale, should be a piece of cake, right? Lyre is the daemon tasked with her consultancy. Lyre is incubi, but he can see right through Clio without ever using his magic. But Lyre does not want to make the magic of war, he doesn't want to kill anyone. But Clio's life is in danger, however, his attitude changes, and no one is safe from his wrath. Like I said, gonna struggle! Its well written, from both Clio and Lyre's point of view, in the third person, past tense. I saw no spelling mistakes or possible editing errors. And I DID finish it, because it was touch and go for a while! Very detailed descriptions of the visual aspect of the magic here, got a bit too much is some places, though. It is a little violent in places, nothing too graphic, just needed mentioning. And although Lyre is incubi, it is, strangely, almost clean. But that's not for want of trying!

Warcross by Marie Lu
Warcross - Marie Lu

Everyone plays Warcross. It is the centerpiece of the virtual reality headsets that have transformed how people interact with each other - across the globe, in public and private.

Emika Chen is a teenage hacker who tries to make ends meet with bounty hunting. Like seemingly everyone else, she is obsessed with Warcross and spends all her spare time playing. Everything changes when Emika tries out a new hack during a qualifying match for the Warcross Quidditch cup or whatever and winds up as a minor celebrity when she's caught in the act.

Her stunt lands her a job with the corporation that invented Warcross and the mysterious young CEO enlists her aid in stopping a shadowy group of terrorist hackers.

There are elements to this book that definitely do not work, but Lu creates a techno-thriller that's perfect for young readers. The blow-by-blows of the games, the intrigues on the dance-floor, and a little bit of romance enhance a surprisingly engaging plot.

On the corner of sexy and steamy, lies love and drama and there is no holding back on that end. Mitch is at a crossroads. He has money and fame, but no sense of direction. Seeking to change that, he sets about rebuilding his world, he turns to his first love and his hometown. Coaching impressionable minds and dodging tenacious women. All except one. Becka is his greatest challenge, but could end up being an everlasting reward. If he can break down the barriers to her heart. Any Given Snow Day puts it all on the line and succeeds. TOUCHDOWN INDEED!
