Summer Again by Julia Gabriel
Summer Again (St. Caroline Series) - Julia Gabriel

Together, separate and then back together, seems to be a strong trend in romance books. This was a better read than I expected. The story circled around the two main characters and was interestingly done. No steam, just the feel and it is left to the reader’s imagination. Enjoyable, needed a little editing, but it is a small distraction.

Zombie Kids Go Green by Julia Dweck
Zombie-Kids Go Green (KiteReaders Monster Series) - Julia Dweck

Zombie Kids Go Green is about a group of zombie kids that help clean up the environment they are in. The book is written in prose and is quite short. I couldn't find any purchase links, and frankly, it's been on my Kindle so long now that I don't recall how I acquired it. 

It's written in prose and it's lovely.

The author uses clever words to engage the reader, young or old, and teaches them even smelly zombies love the Earth enough to care for it.

The illustrations are awesome too.  Great job, Mark Draisey.

I really enjoyed this little book a lot. If you're a zombie fan, check it out.

The One and Only
The One and Only - Julia Ash The One and Only - Julia Ash Full review can also be found on my blog: www.diaryofdifference.com/2018/05/29/the-one-and-only-julia-ash-book-review/

When bio-terrorism threatens to obscure humanity, one woman has the power to restore hope.

Ruby Spencer is a wife and a mother. She also happens to be the only person that could save the people on Earth from dying! In moments when she is planning to resign from the U.S. Special Warfare Council, Ruby and her husband Clay are sent to one last mission.

With the last assignment being a low-risk mission to Taiwan where they need to analyze the zombie infection and consult with scientists, it seems like they are about to go on a long-deserved mini honeymoon.

But everything goes wrong! They get kidnapped, the biggest world powers all plan a war ahead, and it seems that only the ones that have Ruby are likely to win the war. They all fight over her, and she has no clue why. What makes her so special?

Review:

First of all, I have to thank the author, Julia Ash, for sending over this amazing book to me, in exchange for an honest review!

The beginning of The One and Only is extremely breathtaking! I believe that the beginning might be the best part of the book, actually! The flow of the story is well-thought, and I especially loved the scenes where the author refers to the past, and made me feel like there was another book before that. It is quite easy to catch up with the beginning and the brief details of the past, but if in the future there is a prequel that explains it all – I would love to be the first one to know about it!

Now, the characters are probably the reason that made the book the way it is! We have Ruby, who is our heroine, a brave lady, ready to give all the love, courage and wisdom in the world. She is a mother, a wife, and a brave fighter that never gives up and is never afraid to stand up against evil.

On the other hand, we have her husband – Clay. He was… alright. I suppose? His love for Ruby and their daughter is incredible, but somehow, I could think of him as a manly enough figure in their relationship. He was smart and brave, but not as smart and brave as Ruby.

I couldn’t somehow connect with him.

The character that intrigued me the most is Ox. I loved how Julia has shown us the psychological profile of this man, and the way he thinks. It was lovely reading about his part of his story, and even though he was on the wrong side, it is what he believes in. And the way it is written in so extraordinary, that at times I could see myself giving him an excuse.

The only part that I couldn’t agree with, and I am refusing to accept is – THE ENDING! I will withdraw myself from spoilers, but that’s not how things should have ended! That is not the ending I wanted, that is not the ending I was hoping for. No, no, no. It made me upset, and angry, and I wanted to break something very bad! That was a huge disappointment for me and it changed my whole perception of the story and the book itself.

If you ever get the chance to read this book – you should expect a lot of twists, a lot of ups and downs, and if you are like me and are trying hard to not bite your nails – well, you’re about to fail. This is not your typical book about zombie apocalypse. This is not your usual book about a heroine being kidnapped. This is not your usual book of how a person saves the world. This will be nothing like you expected, and everything you hoped for.

Book Blitz - Shopping For A Billionaire's Baby

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby
Julia Kent
(Shopping for a Billionaire #13))
Publication date: April 24th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

You know what’s even better than marrying a billionaire? Having his baby.

 

We’re ready. We’ve studied and planned, read all the birth and labor books, researched parenting classes, consulted our schedules, and it’s time.

 

And by we I mean me.

 

Declan’s just ready for the “have lots of sex” part. More than ready.

 

But there’s just one problem: my husband and his brother have this little obsession with competition.

 

And by little, I mean stupid.

That’s right.

 

We’re not just about to try to bring a new human being into the world.

 

We have to do it better, Faster, Stronger.

 

Harder.

 

McCormick men don’t just have babies.

 

They engage in competitive billionaire Babythons.

 

I thought the hardest part about getting pregnant would be dealing with my grandchild-crazed mother, who will go nuts shopping for a billionaire’s baby.

 

Wrong.

 

Between conception issues, my mother’s desire to talk to the baby through a hoo-haw cam, a childbirth class led by a drill sergeant and a father-in-law determined to sign the kid up for prep school before Declan even pulls out, my pregnancy has turned out to be one ordeal after the other.

 

But it’s nothing — nothing — compared to the actual birth.

 

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby is the newest book in Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble

/ iBooks / Kobo / Google Play

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT:

 

“Just because other people can’t get their act together as parents doesn’t mean we can’t,” I explain. “There is no process that can’t be project managed into a well-oiled machine, babies included.”

 

Andrew snorts. “You really believe that.”

 

“A baby is like a disruptive new technology. But our first deliverable is still eight months to a year away. That leaves us plenty of time to update our practices and diversify into new areas. Find the best people, incentivize them, and keep them in their swim lanes.”

 

I’m getting major raised eyebrows here.

 

“Optimization protocols, testing, fine tuning, and putting together the right team is all it takes. Drill down to the essentials, find people who are the absolute best at what we need, and that’s it–we build a life based on optimal outcomes.”

 

“You sound like you’re making a robotic dog, Dec. Not a human.”

 

“This baby will have a hands-on father. Plenty of love. And with a mother like Shannon, how could we go wrong?”

 

Mother.

 

Calling Shannon a mother does something to my gut.

 

A tug, hard and emotional, destabilizes me for a second.

 

 

 

Author Bio:

 

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men's room toilet (and he isn't a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.
