Rock Legend (Nothing But Trouble, #2) by Tara Leigh
Rock Legend - Tara Leigh

 

Landon is a walking heartbreak. A playboy with a rocker image, but a lonely heart. Piper was a ray of light in his otherwise dark world. When people continuously treat you like nothing, eventually you start to believe it's true. In a world where image is everything, is it possible to show others the man behind the bad boy image? Leigh is not afraid to expose life at it's most painful. There is more beauty in the hard moments. Only then does strength of character and heart show. Rock Legend is a journey though pain, self-doubt, destruction and survival. Landon and Piper take a road trip through hell to find out what heaven really means. A love sonnet perfectly in tune with the heart.

great book and great characters
The Forbidden Brother - Joanne Rock

Jullian was in Cheyenne, Wyoming as she had a new job as a film location scout but she was already at   the risk of losing her job Jullian was a breast cancer survivor and when she was at one on her very low times during radiation  treatment Jullian made a list of one hundred life adventures she wanted to do two years ago. Jullian was at the Thirsty Cow bar and having some wine. Jullian had driven to Cheyenne to meet a wealthy   powerful reclusive rancher Cody McNeill and to try and change his mind about allowing a film crew on his land Jillian had sent a formal written request to Cody’s business manager and got a firm no back. Her boss was pushing her to sign the deal as Jullian had sent her some pictures of Black Creek ranch. Now Jullian was here to try to convince Cody Mcneall. Carson was Cody’s brother -and identical twin but Jullian didn’t know that- and Jullian hoped to see if she could talk Carson to help her win over his brother. If Jullian could get Cody’s permission to film at the ranch she would get more work form her boss. Alos her boss was well connected in the  industry and she might pass along Jullian’s name to her friends as a successful scout. That would mean more work and more travel. More items crossed off her list but more important it meant Jullian was kicking cancer’s butt and that was what she wanted more than anything. Her boyfriend Ethan at the time bailed right after her surgery to remove a tumor. Ethan said he couldn’t deal with chemo and radiation treatments. Jillian swore she saw Varson and left the Thirsty Cow and went into another bar Wrangler’s what Jullian didn’t know it was Cody. There was only five people in the bar. Jillian had no interest or had any mojo in the last two years Some was from his ex and the other was from her disease and the treatment that had lefT her feeling like a dried out husk of a woman She knew from what she had read this could be a normal side effect.What did it matter if men and sex had no appeal to Jillian while she focused on her career and recovery. Then surprisingly Jillian found herself attracted to who she thought was Carson. Cody had bought the building Wranglers was in and now he planned on remodeling it for a more centrally located ranch office. Cody’s family was already fractured but the appearance of his grandfather- Malcolm. Who had disowned Cody’s father Donovan twenty years ago.  Carson wanted to make peace with his grandfather but Cody wanted nothing to do with him. Carson was the type to always go for the fun and not worry about the consequences and Cody decided to pretend he was Carson. He then went up to Jillian and asked her to dance and after a few minutes she agreed .Cody hadn’t been with a woman for twelve months as he hadn’t been tempted by anyone after finding his ex girlfriend cheating. But this woman was different and Cody asks Jillian if she would like to go on an adventure with him.and again Jillian agrees. They have sex and find out the condom had broken but Jillian isn't worried as she doesn’t think she can have kids after the treatments she had. Cody gets her to go for a blood test and she is pregnant.

This was a very good read .I really enjoyed it and this was a fun easy read. I loved how the author approached and delivered the things that happened to Jillian because of her cancer and treatments especially her emotions. I loved Jillian and Cody together. I did feel the ending was rushed especially all a sudden Cody loves Jillian but it didn’t do a lot to hurt the story. I would rate this 4.5 if I could. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend

The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors - Drew Daywalt,Adam Rex

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I normally don't do half stars, but I really am between 2 and 3 stars on this one. 

Overall, this is an interesting read about the fictional origins of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Those origins are basically epic battles between household items. Why are the household items fighting all the time? We will never know. But it's a silly and fun read. 

The book is written with a knight-like mentality, i.e. "I must be the best warrior, but I also want a challenge.", so pretty much fighting for the sake of fighting. Good message for kids? Probably not. But it is entertaining enough if you don't take it too seriously (which you are obviously not meant to do). 

The pictures are interesting, although some of the battle scenes were a little cringe-y. The smooshed apricot and pile of decapitated dinosaur nuggets were a bit much. 

This is a weird, but interesting book. Kind of creepy, kind of fun. I like the idea behind it.

4.3 Out Of 5 "musing and mending" STARS
Atheists Who Kneel and Pray - Tarryn Fisher

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray

Tarryn Fisher

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse. 

 

She dates men who need her but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long. 

 

David Lisey is in need of a muse. 

 

A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he's found what he's been looking for. 

 

Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential: 

A broken heart. 

 

David’s religion is love. 

 

Yara’s religion is heartache. 

 

Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I really like Tarryn Fisher, l like how she makes her stories unlike any others out there.  Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is a story about a musician and his muse…a story about breaking hearts and finding a way to mend them…an unflinching look into jealousy and commitment issues…and, how just one life-changing event can shape us into who we are…until we break free.  Yara has issues, and I found her difficult to like as a character, yet she ultimately found her way under my skin and I needed to see her broken heart mended...

Beyond the Sea by Keira Andrews 4 Star Review!
Beyond the Sea - Keira Andrews

Even if it means quitting their boy band mid-tour, Troy Tanner isn’t going to watch his little brother snort his future away after addiction destroyed their father. On a private jet taking him home from Australia, he and pilot Brian Sinclair soar above the vast South Pacific. Brian lost his passion for flying—and joy in life—after a traumatic crash, but now he and Troy must fight to survive when a cyclone strikes without warning.

Marooned a thousand miles from civilization, the turquoise water and white sand beach look like paradise. But although they can fish and make fire, the smallest infection or bacteria could be deadly. When the days turn into weeks with no sign of rescue, Troy and Brian grow closer, and friendship deepens into desire.

As they learn sexuality is about more than straight or gay and discover their true selves, the world they've built together is thrown into chaos. If Troy and Brian make it off the island, can their love endure?

 

Review

 

I love an island survival story. I grew up reading everyone you can think of and my addiction to Blue Lagoon was off the hook so it figures I love the grown up versions (not that Blue Lagoon wasn't but I was a kid) too.

I almost didn't pick this one up because I am not a fan of two straight guys falling in love but Will from The Big Gay Fiction Podcast loved this book and I have never read a bad Kiera Andrews book so I bought it. 

It was so good. Its a slow burn as it should be and love is strong and grand. Both heroes are complex and making their lives work as a couple both on the island (extrovert/introvert problems) and off the island (fame and oh hello discovered bisexuality is realistically done. 

It is a great story and romance. Woo hoo!
