Must Love Movie Star (The Alaska Sunrise Romances, #9) by Melissa Storm
Must Love Movie Star - Melissa Storm

 

 

Life is not like the movies. In the real world happy endings are not easily acquired, they're hard work. Storm takes readers behind the glitter with her special brand of heartache and heartwarming. Must Love Movie Star is one woman's determination to flip the script and learn to exist outside the fantasy. Jo is an ace when it comes to remembering her lines, but following her heart is a different matter. When her next film challenges her survival instincts on and off the set, she finds a hero in Dan. Dan is just what she needs to help her find her voice outside of the Hollywood glitz, but can their ordinary love survive the celebrity of her life? Love is an adventure worth taking with Melissa Storm at the wheel.

Oops! Too engrossed to...
A Beautiful Friendship - David Weber

...remember I was reading this for a book club.  I should have been discussing frequently here on the dashboard.  I should be writing a good review.

 

Instead, I wolfed through this one, then book two and then immediately book three.

 

I did want more in the Honor-verse.  I hesitated to start this before was a bookclub because I wasn't confident author could write for YA.  

 

I was wrong; he did very well with YA.  Excellent book, but possibly a bit lacking in some ... not sure "tension" is the correct word.  Everything wasn't breezy and light; a few very possibly serious things just seemed a bit easily resolved with the M.C. often just that much smarter than others.  Most places that worked well; just enough off that it's not quite a five star read for me.

 

Boy did I ever want to read this early backstory of the treecat world!

EEK! It’s A Spider – What Hides Within by Jason Parent @AuthorJasParent
What Hides Within - Jason Parent

Jason Parent writes some scary stuff, just look at the cover for What Hides Within and you will see what I mean. Does it make you want to know want to know more? It does me.

Cover by Q Design

 

Publisher: Bloodshot Books

 

What Hides Within

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Just looking at the creepy cover makes me cringe, yet I open it with sweet anticipation, looking forward to a great scare with same laughs, which I know Jason Parent is more than willing to provide.

 

With a name like Clive, I foresee some bad things coming his way. Will he be the victim or the perpetrator? We shall see.

 

The doctor cut open his head to remove…something…only to find everything is okay. He stitched him back up, offered an apology, and wanted him to go away. I’m sorry, but that wouldn’t work for me, and I don’t think it will work for Clive either. OMG! The nerve of the idiot moron doctor! If I was Clive, I probably would have killed him on the spot.

That is the present…NOW…let’s go to the past and find out how and why he got into this spot to begin with.

 

Detective Samantha Reilly was a hardened detective leading the investigation into a young girl’s death. She was inured to the brutality humans inflicted upon each other. Knowing Jason, I see more dead bodies on the horizon and a truly evil killer.

 

As soon as we went under the bridge, I knew where Jason was taking me. Now, I’m waiting for the twist.

 

Chester and Derek…OMG…I laughed so hard I cried. I love that Jason Parent packs so much action, along with the darkness and laughs, leaving me wanting more.

 

Chester, I wonder what’s going to happen to Chester. Every time I think about him, I try to imagine the details of his home, how and what he eats, and his dining accommodations. I wonder what Chester hopes to accomplish.

 

I shivered and freaked out a little. Spiders are one of my favorite critters to read about because they make me so uncomfortable. Talk about stepping outside my comfort zone.

Well, that didn’t go the way I thought and that is one of the reasons I love Jason Parent’s writing. He mixes genres seamlessly, dark horror and comedy with lots of action, and creates some amazing villains. Can’t hear so well? Have a stuffy nose?

 

Well…

 

Jason, you did it again. Took me to a place filled with suspense and tension and a pace that kept me reading, wanting to know what was on the next page, and the next one…

I can hardly wait to get my hands on Victoria, Book II and the final book in the series.

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of What Hides Within by Jason Parent.

Get ’em now – FREE Centaurs – Blood Debt by Nancy Straight @NancyStraight
Blood Debt - Nancy Straight

 

I thought I had won this signed, first edition paperback some time ago, but after doing a Teaser Tuesday for it, my sister, Laura, and I got to talking. She had two signed copies and had given me one. Thanks so much Laura.

 

Blood Debt is FREE, so grab you copy now.

 

Blood Debt (Touched, #1)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

Cover: Joy Stroube @ Dreamscapecovers.com

Blook Debt, Book I, Touched Series, published 2012

Centaur Legacy, Book II

Centaur Rivalry, Book III

Centaur Redemption, Book IV

 

MY REVIEW

 

Blood Debt is ,for me, an amazingly refreshing and original paranormal romance novel, heavy on the Greek mythology. I have not read a lot about Centaurs, but I am blown away by how much I ended up loving this story by the time I was done. It kept getting better and better and by the end, I was so involved with the characters, that I was screaming for more. 

 

The shifting point of view was confusing at first, but it didn’t take me long to adjust and the story flowed better, unfolding so rapidly in front of me that I forgot about it.

 

Camille had wondered who her father was, but never would have chose to lose her mom to find out. On her death bed, Camille’s mother did tell her who her father was and after some phone conversations and a background check (thank goodness for the internet, lol), she is flying to meet him. It struck me as odd, that anyone, especially a female, would go so quickly and alone on top of it. But, this is fiction and I am happy to overlook that and cut right to the chase.

Camille’s heritage traces back to the first Centaur touched by Zeus, but she is totally unaware of it. She does not know she is a Centaur, let alone know about their traditions and customs.

 

In a Centaur relationship, think the Stepford Wives in reverse. I love it. I couldn’t help but laugh. At first I thought it was creepy and funny, the woman is “queen” and the men give them no flak for it, but then I thought, someone has to be the boss. LOL The men worship the ground the women walk on and would do nothing to cross the traditional barriers, until….Cami

 

How far will you go for love? Cami is going to show us the way…and I am shocked by what’s happening on the page…..oops, sorry, it’s a secret. You will need to read her story for yourself. I NEVER saw anything like this coming and I am stunned by Nancy Straight’s ability to take the story to such a creative level. It just keeps getting better and better.

 

I guess I need to explain that a bit and you will see what I mean. Blood Debt started out as an easy 3 star novel. If it would have stayed that way, I would not have been disappointed. But, it didn’t take long and I knew I had to bump the rating. So, I thought 3 is out, it’s gotta be a 4, and that was a nice surprise. I would have been happy with that. But, it didn’t stop there. Well, I think you know where this is going.

 

I have a love/hate relationship with the characters. The torment and sacrifice they go through to follow the demands of their race, customs and traditions had me wondering how this could have a happy ending. At one point, my heart fell and I was devastated, but I did recover, in a very surprising fashion.

 

The more I read, the faster I went. A fantastic buildup to an ending that left me screaming for more, but, thankfully, I don’t have to wait for Centaur Legacy, Book II.

 

Laura, my sister, had a spare, signed, first edition paperback of Blood Debt by Nancy Straight and gave me the book. Thanks so very much Laura.

 

Now, I need the rest of the books. This is definitely one series I want to finish.

Can Lightning Strike Twice – Lightning Crimes by Chrys Fey @ChrysFey
Lightning Crimes (Disaster Crimes Book 2.5) - Chrys Fey

 

 

Lightning Crimes by Chrys Fey, is part of the Disaster Crime series and I have been lovin’ every minute of it.

 

FREE SHORT STORY, LIGHTNING CRIMES

 

Cover:  Chrys Fey

 

Lightning Crimes (Disaster Crimes Book 2.5)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Donovan and Beth have been through a hurricane and an earthquake, so a lightning storm should be a piece of cake and Chrys Fey’s descriptive writing makes me feel like I am there with them, through the clashing of the thunder, the flashes of the lightning, the pounding of the rain and the roaring of the wind, but there is more…a rock through a window, an open door that was locked, wet footprints on carpet…Chrys can create a suspenseful read whether its danger from storms or humans.
