Book Review: Close Your Eyes
Close Your Eyes - Robin Jones Gunn

Title: Close Your Eyes
Author: Robin Jones Gunn
Series: Sierra Jensen, #4
Format: bind-up
Length: 135 pages
Rating: 3 stars

 

Favourite character: Sierra
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: I like this series more than I liked the Christy Miller series. Sierra seems to be maturing whereas Christy never really did. She just kind of woke up mature in time to introduce Sierra. Sierra is head-strong and Christy was a pleaser, which bugs the heck out of me in books. I liked this book. 

 

Fan-cast:
Sierra Jensen - Willow Shields
Tawni Jensen - Tiera Skovbye
Randy Jenkins - Christian Martyn
Amy Degrassi - Katelyn Nacon
Drake - Gavin Casalegno
Vicki - Isabel May
Paul Mackenzie - Shameik Moore
Wes Jensen - Dylan Sprouse

Movie Review: Jurassic Park: The Lost World

 

Title: Jurassic Park: The Lost World
Release Date: 1997
Starring: Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Vince Vaughn, Pete Postlethwaite
Length: 2h 9min
Rating: 14A

 

Favourite character: Kelly


Crush: Ian Malcolm & Nick Van Owen
Least favourite character: Dieter Stark
Favourite line: Basically everything Ian Malcolm says

 

Mini-Review: These movies always make me feel slightly sick to be completely honest. I tend to veer away from movies like this, monster dinosaur movies that eat people. Scares the crap out of me. But I watched these movies for a kid I babysit and became strangely fascinated. So while I watch, nauseated, I just focus on Jeff Goldblum. That’s all I really have to say.

Not a true first in series
Mayhem's Warrior: Operation Mayhem - Lindsay Cross

I was confused for a lot of this, it felt like chunks of story were missing. Reading other reviews it seems like a novella and the Men of Mercy series should be read before this, as characters and instances pertaining to this story are covered.

 

Sweet innocent heroine who's blood can act like a cure all serum (????) for the hero and his team's altered DNA issues. Hero and heroine fell in love fast and I'm not sure why. A lot of super soldier stories out there and this didn't really distance itself in any way from the pack, but again, I haven't read the previous books, so I was lost. 

 

I have a couple other books from this author as Kindle Freebies, the writing was technically good enough that I'll see if I can find the start to all of this and get the pertinent facts.

Review! Reunited Lovers (Friendship Chronicles #2) Shelley Munro!

 

 

Hello, Readers! Today I am sharing Reunited Lovers - the 2nd book in the Love and Friendship series by Shelley Munro! Enjoy and don't forget to add Reunited Lovers to your shelves!

 

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

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Never look back...right?

 

Julia Maxwell is a seize-the-moment party girl until the night she spends with up-and-coming rocker Ryan Callander. From that moment, she becomes a one-man woman. Pity he hasn’t kept with the program.

 

Tired of the secrets that have kept her out of the press and Ryan’s fans happy, angry with mounting evidence of infidelity, Julia is older, wiser, and determined to divorce his cheatin’ ass.

 

Ryan’s long European tour had more than its share of hard knocks—one of which landed on his head when he was mugged. Divorce papers waiting for him at home are a shock that fills in some of the holes in his sketchy memory. But it could be too late to salvage his marriage.

 

If Ryan thinks flirtatious smiles, seductive touches, and hot-and-heavy kisses are going to smooth things over, Julia’s got a hammer with his name on it. To her surprise, he calls her bluff, determined to rebuild a bright future for both of them. But the past is lurking with some missing pieces that could bring their hearts crashing down.

 

Warning: Contains a pissed ex-stripper turned burlesque dancer, a bunch of nosy friends and a smooth-talking rocker with one thing on his mind. Stripper poles and skimpy costumes are optional.

 

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

 


This Love and Friendship romance invokes strong emotions in readers as Ryan tries to win back Julia’s heart after disappearing from her life. Julia and Ryan are two strong, convincing characters that captures readers’ hearts and ensure that they want to know every last detail. The relationship is on rocky ground and due to some devastating past events which keeps Julia’s emotional turmoil at an all-time high which in return keeps readers glued to the pages and holding their breath wondering if this couple will achieve that elusive happily ever after.

 

The story is fast paced and full of emotional suspense with friends adding support to each of the characters and when family issues add twist to the story which add to the intense emotions of the story, as well. The interactions between the couple and friends inspire readers with their closeness, loyalty and ability to help out during a crisis and the whole turning around of the family business adds a range of effects to the romance between Julia and Ryan. It is not necessary to read the previous book in this series in order to enjoy reading this one, but this one does make readers curious about it and the next book.

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

 

 

 

 

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world.

Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Opposites attract…and ignite. On the ice, Justin Perry is always in control. As one of the Reading Redtails’ best defensemen, he plays with an intense focus and skates like he was born on blades. Off the ice, he’s content to keep his head down and his eyes on the prize: a spot on an NHL team. Except when Vivi Martin’s around. She’s bright, bold and beautiful and Justin can’t make himself look away.

 

Vivi can’t help but notice Justin’s interest and, yeah, she’s not immune to his awkward charm or his grin that steals her breath. But falling for another athlete who will only leave and break her heart is the last thing she needs. Been there, done that. No t-shirt required. She’s too busy working three part-time jobs to make ends meet while figuring out how to use her passion for photography to build a career.

 

Until Vivi gets a peek at what’s underneath Justin’s boy-scout exterior and discovers a tattooed hunk who rocks her world with a kiss. She’d be a fool to pass up a chance to get him in her bed....and in front of her camera. And Vivi’s no fool. But when a career-focused hockey player pursues a free spirit who’s built a fortress of ice around her bruised heart, Justin’s going to have to step up and take his best shot to break through Vivi’s walls...and hope it doesn’t shatter them both.

The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6 by Stephanie Julian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6, in the Redtails Hockey series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For read understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Justin is getting ribbed by his friends about watching Vivi when she is near. It is true he is interested. When you are tongue tied, when do you make your move?

Vivi does not usually go out with good guys. Commitment gives her hives. Justin is so different from what she is used to. He treats her like a man should treat a woman.

This was such a great addition to the series. Steamy and sweet, this book just grabbed at my heart strings and I could not put it down. The main characters were very real to me. Their story weaved and fell into place. I really liked this book it was a joy to read.
