Bright Lights, Dark Skies by Jess Hanna
Bright Lights, Dark Skies - Jess Hanna

 

A very well written "alien abduction" story from a Christian point of view. The author did a fantastic job in describing that feeling of foreboding that one gets when you know something is there, but you don't want to look. I just thought he did a great job in describing the main character and how his life slowly spirals out of his control because of his close encounter.

Really good book with a great message that is worth consideration when it comes to the subject of UFO's.

Definitely recommended!

Book Review for Smiley by LeAnn Ashers The Grim Sinner's Originals MC Series

Adeline

 

It was completely unexpected. I’d never imagined he would come into my life. From the moment I met him, I knew there was no going back. He made me feel things I had never experienced before:

Safety

Love

Happiness

I was floating on air. Nothing could touch me with him by my side. He became my everything.
 
 
 
Smiley
 
I’d never expected my life to change upon walking into the Devil Souls MC. At first glance, I almost fell on my ass, and I knew I had to have her. She was everything I never knew I wanted, and hell if that didn’t stir something in me. Adeline gave me something I had been missing my whole life:
Passion
Desire
Contentment
 
I’m the retired president of the Grim Sinners MC but, in the end, you never really leave. The Devil Souls and The Grim Sinners clashed and were brought together to fight the biggest battle yet.
 
We had to protect our families at any cost.

 
 
 
 
I really don't know where to start with this review other than to say the minute Smiley looked up from his phone and into Adeline's eyes and said "Your having dinner with me tonight." I fell head over heels in love with him.
 
Warning-This story touches a lot on subjects such as abuse, rape,torture,prostitution , vengeance,pain suffering and trauma all this things that happened in Adeline's past that lead her to having PTSD and nightmares.
 
Before reading this story you need to read the other stories in which Adeline was introduced to  get the full background of the horrendous life she had lived prior to this book.
(Recommend reading Techy at least first)
 
I love a book like this all about second chances especially when you think that it is a not possibility and that your never going heal from your past but, it is possible when you have the love of a large mc family named the Devil Souls.
 
Most MC's do not co-habitat unless its with their affiliate chapters but, Adeline's daughter is the old Lady of one of the Devil Souls members and Smiley's daughter is married to a member also so the MC family for Adeline is a combined one. That's one lucky Gal!
 
This time around its hard to pick a favorite but, I have no choice than to pick Smiley hands down !
 
 
What made the choice for me to pick him was that Smiley at every turn surprised me not only with his deeds but, with his overwhelming protectiveness and kindness and love that he showed his woman as well as his children and grand-children.I loved how patient and kind and gentle he could be but, he had a whole other dangerous side to him where he put the fear in god in most people.
 
Omg! Just thinking about the pain ,suffering and torture Adeline endured her entire life broke my heart each and every time her past was brought up.She became a women to be admired for her strength kindness and courage and the determination to survive the horrors she endured and still walk away with a mind intact, this alone was a milestone in her recovery of taking her own life back.
 
I loved the nicknames they had for Adeline but, most of all I loved how the entire club of children called her Gigi and they all loved her as much as she did them.
 
I loved the romance between Smiley and Adeline and how it slowly developed and just by Smiley giving her experiences she had never thought she would have and making some of the little things she wanted to enjoy out of life come true we watched a small miracle of this women being re-born.I loved being on her journey of healing and finding herself once again.A character that you could not help but love as she was nothing but goodness personified.
 
For me the most heart breaking moment and turning point in the story for me was the moment Adeline aka Gigi stepped out on that beach with all those children in a two piece bathing suit. These children all saw her as their grand-mother and vice versa but, for me I saw a moment in time that Adeline had finally let go of her past once and for all.
 
All in all we loved the story from cover to cover.I loved the little miracles that occurred throughout the story as well as god interventions and his little gifts as some would say this just made the story more endearing and more lovable.
 
Recommended read to all who can handle a book with the subject matter as this one had !
 
P.S. My final thoughts would be I would want a guy like Smiley to have my back each and every time .Adeline was full of so much kindness and goodness that she not only had Smiley at her back but each and every member of both The Devil Souls and The Grim Sinners....
 
My kind of Gal!

Linc has two very important things on his mind—professional football and his motorcycle club.
 
What he does not have on his mind is the woman that drives him crazy and makes him want to do stupid things, like throw caution to the wind.
 
Nope, not Linc.
 
At least, that’s the lie he tells everyone.
 
In reality, every time Conleigh’s name is mentioned, he squirms.
 
She’s everything that he wants, wrapped up in a cute little package that is stamped ‘hands freakin’ off.’
 
She’s four years younger than him, in school to be a doctor, and thinks football is stupid.
 
Even more, Linc and Conleigh get along like oil and water.
 
There’s not a single second that they’re in each other’s presence that they’re not at each other’s throats.
 
But all it takes is hearing that she’s in trouble for Linc to drop every single thing—football and MC duties alike—and head to her side.
 
A side that he’ll remain at until they either kill each other, or finally give into the heat between them.
 
Either way you look at it, he’s well and truly screwed.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I have to say that I am always looking forward to one of Lani's books.I am so glad that Linc finally got his story as he has been in love with Conleigh for the longest time and no matter how much time passed that never changed.
 
I have to say that overall that I loved the story but, I was disappointed with certain parts of the story but, the ending of the story makes up for the things that happened that I didn't like.Smiles!!!!!
 
Here goes...
 
I loved how that story started out and how a misunderstanding gave Linc the perfect motive to get Conleigh just where he wanted her.I have to say that he should be kissing Pru's feet and thanking his lucky stars.I thought that the whole situation that lead to this misunderstanding was so hilarious!
 " It made me laugh out loud!"
 
I loved how these two characters stopped fighting the thing that they wanted most.I will say that for Conleigh I really understood her misgivings as she is someone who doesn't want to live in the lime-life and with Linc that is a given.
 
I loved how Linc went about courting Conleigh even though she never really new that is what he was doing.
 
I loved these two as a couple as the romance between them was super sweet and playful.I will say that if you are a reader of Lani's books that you come to expect certain things from her books and one of these things is she writes really super hot books and the sex scenes are smoking hot.
What happen with this book? Where was the heat? I could see their first sexual encounter going down they way that it did as Linc had a constant hard on for Conleigh for 6 years and it was done in the heat of the moment but, every sexual encounter after that just seemed to be rushed and just sex except for the repayment for the bet made.I guess what I am saying that I didn't feel their connection .Where was the romance the foreplay the built up? These were two young people who had 6 years apart from one another to make up for not being together and you would think that they would have been all over each other but, were not.
 
Here is my other disappointment...Once Conleigh and Linc were already together they were warned that a rival club was messing with the Dixie Wardens and their affiliate clubs and they were warned that some trouble might be coming to the door of the Bear Bottom MC.I am pointing this out only because Conleigh was privy to this discussion,So what took place next been Conleigh and Linc should have happened in a totally different way than it did.I was so disappointed with Conleigh I wanted to spit ! On the other side of the coin you can understand what happened next and how things could have went down the way they did is because Conleigh main focus of what happened was exploited by the press and we all no this is one of Conleigh's biggest fears about being with Linc in the first place so her good judgment was clouded by her own fears.
 
Moving on....
 
I always pick a favorite character this time around mine is going to be Linc.I just loved Linc and one of the reasons is that he is a very confident and very successful sexy man who wore his heart on sleeve for the whole world to see.How could you not love a man who loves a woman like that? Take ME Take ME ! lol
 
Favorite scenes would be the family intervention and Hoax's and Conleigh's first meeting both were priceless moments! 
 
Overall I really loved the story because it was really cute.There were so many good things and moments that happened in the story that made me smile and laugh that it never distracted me from the couple of things that disappointed me.A story like this is so easy to express all the things that you loved about it but, its very hard to do that without giving parts of the story away..We had many scenes that we would love to talk about! Hoax's is one !
 
For me I am loving the series and its characters!
 
Recommended read to all if your loving this series.

Nomenclator: Initium by Bill O'Malley
Nomenclator: Initium - A Novel Of Ancient Rome - Bill O'Malley

This is the story of Lucius, a roman boy who wishes to know the true history of Julius Caesar, not the stuff that is written for the masses. So he seeks out a slave named Polybius (who is now very old and free), who lived during the time of Caesar and knew him personally as his nomenclator. As it says in the synopsis, a nomenclator was the close personal attendant who announced the names and information on people to his master.

 

                                             See the source image

 

This is the first of a series of 4 books that follows the life of Julius Caesar from his beginning, as told by his personal slave Polybius and I loved it. The author did a great job putting you in that time period and getting an intimate, close up look at the rise of the first emperor of Rome. I am really surprised at how well it is written considering the author seems to have put out only 1 book before this. I am really looking forward to the rest of the series.

 

5 stars and recommended for all historical fiction fans.

Book Review for Beast by SC Daiko
 
 
 
 
 
 
Title: BEAST

I’ve been sold by my own father to a beast.
 
Gleb Sokolov is the definition of a savage.
He’s an animal in bed and everywhere else.
A notorious Russian mobster, badass personified.
 
And my father just sold me to him, to pay off a debt.
 
But there’s something Gleb doesn’t know… we have a son,
and I’ll do anything to keep him from finding out.
 
Eva Petrenko.
Sassy, secretive, trouble with a capital T.
She drives me fucking insane.
Except, when her father offers her to me, I find I can’t resist.
She belongs with me, even if she refuses to believe it.
Eva hates me, but I’ll go to the ends of the earth to protect her.
Problem is, Eva’s father isn’t the only one with debts…
and mine are the kind I’ll need to pay with my own blood.
 
 
 
This was an enjoyable read.I enjoy this author's stories so always looking forward to her releases.
 
I enjoyed the story plot and enjoyed most of the characters but, I will have to say that Eva's parents not at all and If I was her would have written them off but, she had such a generous heart it was not in her to do so.
 
I always pick a favorite character and mine is going to be Gleb and that is because he was willing to sacrifice so much for those he loved but also give up the only life he has known to protect them as well as love them.I found Gleb to be brass,conceded but underneath all the dark and dangerous he had a heart as well as a conscience.I also loved that he even had limits that he wouldn't cross.I felt  bad and even sad at the fact he was constantly waring with himself and what was best for Eva and his son.
 
Eva what to say other than she was a sweetheart.I loved that she had a bit of feisty-ness to her as well and a backbone too.I loved how protective she was of her son.I loved how patient she was with Gleb as he continued to work through all these new emotions that she stirred up in him.
 
The story flowed nicely and had a bit of suspense and also about a second chance at the life you would have chosen not the one your were dealt but, had the courage to make the change even if it killed her.
 
I enjoyed the romance between this couple and as the story played out they had quite a few sexy scene's but, my only complaint would be I felt that this couple  never connected on a intimate level (meaning I never felt the love between them even knowing they loved one another) maybe it was just the fact that Gleb guarded his heart and emotions fiercely to the very end and just finally realizing really what he had to lose and let us see what was beneath the surface.
 
Overall the story was good from beginning to end.Was I wowed this time around  ? "no" but ,it was a nice enjoyable read to pass the time.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Without warning, my head starts to spin. Shit, I shouldn’t have drunk that cocktail so fast. I can’t see any signs indicating the bathroom. Maybe I can escape for a few minutes behind one of these doors? I’m not that desperate to pee, just need somewhere peaceful to sit and wait for my brain to clear.
I step into an office unlike any I’ve been in before. Ritzy, with an executive desk in the center that’s the size of my bed at home. My eyes are immediately drawn to a stack of banknotes on top of the shiny surface. I tiptoe across the room.
Wow, it’s a pile of one-hundred-dollar bills.
I pick one up to examine it.
Surely these can’t be real?
“What the fuck are you doing in here?” a baritone voice booms.
The air around me compresses, and I spin around.
A man in a tux is standing in the doorway, piercing blue eyes glowering at me. He’s so big his shoulders nearly meet the doorjambs.
And he’s drawn a fucking gun on me!
“I was looking for the bathroom.” I drop the money back onto the table, my heartbeat thudding in my ears.
Blue Eyes paces up to me, holsters his firearm and grabs my wrist. “Who sent you to snoop?” His English is good, but I detect a familiar intonation. “Was it Vadim Rayt?” he adds.
“No one sent me,” I blurt out in Russian. “I’m telling the truth.”
I try to squirm out of Blue Eyes’ hold, but he pulls me against his rock-hard chest, towering above me and invading my senses with his spicy sandalwood cologne.
“Let me go.” I struggle and aim a kick at his shin.
His laugh is scornful. “Not before you give me a better explanation.”
I bite my bottom lip, trying to come up with something. “I just needed some time out.”
“Time out? You’ve got to be kidding. The only women who come in here on their own are hookers. High-class hookers who bribe the doorman.” His gaze roves over my body. “Either you’re a whore or a spy. Which one is it?”
An idea occurs to me. How I can get out of this situation. “I’m a hooker,” my voice purrs.
I can’t believe the words coming out of my mouth. I’ve never been so blatant… like ever. But desperate times call for desperate measures. Once I’ve gotten his pants down around his legs I’ll make a run for it. I reach for his belt buckle with my free hand.
With a groan he lets go my wrist and pushes me to my knees. “You better be good.”
I’ve never given a blow-job in my life. It wasn’t something I felt I could offer my ex, the only boyfriend I’ve ever had.
But I’m not gonna suck Blue Eyes off, am I?
This is only a means to an end.
I pull down his suit pants, and he releases his monster cock himself. Oh. My. God. There’s a ring-style piercing at the tip. Is that what they call a Prince Albert? I stare at it, fascinated.
“Like what you see, Kotenok?”
Somehow, I don’t mind being called kitten by him.
Mistake, Eva.
Big mistake.
Focus on the task at hand… You need to get out of here.
I jump to my feet and prepare to run.
But he grabs me by the hair, yanking me against him. “Oh, yes, you are good, little slut. But not as good as you think you are. Time you learned a lesson.”
He steps out of his pants and drags me over to his executive chair.
“What are you doing?” I yelp.
“Punishing you for attempting a fast one. I’m going to spank your ass.”
“And then you’ll let me go.” It’s more a statement than a question.

“One step at a time, Kitten. First, I will punish you… then we negotiate.”
