You already know the tune!
The Children at the Playground - Tracey M. Cox,Dolores Costello

This is a cute book based on the well-known children's song; The Wheels on the Bus. As this just happens to be one of my grandson's favourite songs, it was perfectly suited to him and he was mesmerised from the start.

 

The illustrations were excellent, colourful and clear, if slightly childish. 

 

There was a small issue of language here though, as none of the parents who read the book along with me, had any idea what a teeter-totter was, and everyone ended up substituting the word see-saw. Similarly, frisbee would have fitted the rhyme better than disc towards the end. Never mind, small niggles really, my grandson loved it and that's what counts.

Epitome of pure evil, born without a heart, soul, or conscience...even his parents did not claim him. He is an outlaw who takes what he wants...

The moment Devin Spawn stumbles upon the exquisite beauty bathing alone in a river, he wants her. Morality non-existent, yet he struggles to keep his distance. His sexual excesses and massive proportions would be too much for the tiny girl who appears more waifish and innocent than womanly. She is a widow with so much to give...

The instant Megan Spawn feels his heated touch and potent sensuality, her flesh burns with wanton desires. It matters little he is the devilishly handsome outlaw known as the Devil's Spawn, the most feared, lethal gunslinger in the West-and her stepson.

Together they risk everything in the devil's playground... Where sexuality is as untamed as the bloodthirsty savages roaming the western frontier, and childhood sweetheart Caleb Walker is guilty as sin, the dark side of lust and passionate surrender comes at a hefty price when you forge a Devil's Pact.

 

 

 

 

This book is a reviewers inappropriate gif posters dream. It covers every possible gif and meme that would have you rolling on the floor if it wouldn't get you reported. So I'll keep it clean but damn, I'm really tempted.

So I actually got this book as a gift from another book reader who just had to pass it on.

The sexual encounters between the characters in this book just aren't to be believed.

I think this is the only Erotica I've read that makes such an effort to detail repeatedly the mental image of trying to fit five hundred pounds of sugar in a five pound bag.

Spawn is loaded.

 

Readers are unable to forget it because the drastic difference between child-like bodied Megan is often very thoroughly detailed repeatedly over and over during the sex scenes between her and her step son every time his massive cannon comes out to play to invade her tiny body. 

Really, its hard to imagine a man's member being so big it could split you in two.

Devil's Pact is one of the most uncomfortable and bizarrely comedic Erotica to love to laugh at because its just so out there that you can't take it seriously at all. A few eye rolls later the threesome comes in to add more cheese and sperm to the mix.

There could be a story here if the sex wasn't so left field extreme and dominant but nothing in this book is actual plot. From the start its mostly established that its just a few small snippets of scenes to give the readers a brief second to turn the page before the next sex scene starts up again.

Devils Pact is weird, its dramatic, and its highly pornographic. Read at your own risk and keep an oxygen mask on hand.

 

 

 

Until next time book lovers...

Scary: Dr Fell's Playground of Doom | Audiobook Review
Dr. Fell and the Playground of Doom - David Neilsen,David Neilsen

A mysteriously creepy MG Fantasy

 

When the mysterious Dr. Fell moves into the abandoned house that had once been the neighborhood kids' hangout, he immediately builds a playground to win them over. But as the ever-changing play space becomes bigger and more elaborate, the children and their parents fall deeper under the doctor's spell.

 

Only Jerry, Nancy, and Gail are immune to the lure of his extravagant wonderland. And they alone notice that when the injuries begin to pile up on the jungle gym, somehow Dr. Fell is able to heal each one with miraculous speed. Now the three children must find a way to uncover the doctor's secret power without being captivated by his trickery.

BOOK DETAILS:

Dr. Fell and the Playground of Doom by David Neilsen, read by the author, published by Listening Library (2016) / Length: 5hrs 23min

 

SUMMARY:

I think the scariest part of this book is how alone these children are in their efforts to figure out what is happening. It is a common theme in MG & YA books that the adults are somehow not there (or the kid's fail to consult them). In this book they are there, but (for reasons I won't reveal) are of no help whatsoever. That seems worse to me somehow.

The Dubai Billionaire's Playground
The Dubai Billionaire's Playground - Rut... The Dubai Billionaire's Playground - Ruth Anne Scott,R.R. Banks I'm so... confused. I thought my Kindle was giving me fits but this actually is the longest fucking romance you'll come across in forever at 750 pages!

Shit, three-quarters of a thousand pages of romance must have it all - sexy times, melodrama, maybe some suspense, family secrets, pregnancy scares, the whole fucking shebang, right?!

No. What it has is an Encyclopedia-level explanation of the International Oil Consortium and the business practices of a harbor in the Middle East and the history of foursomes between these two BFFs and an oddly detailed but still somehow vague explanation of how super fucking amazing these women are for being the best in their career fields as soon as they exited the womb. I have never seen an author try so hard to create Mary Sues - they literally take no effort at all.

As if that wasn't annoying enough, there are POV changes mid-paragraph like the author lost track of who they were supposed to be focused on. There are mid-convo infodumps that sound like reading an owner's manual. There is completely superfluous information scattered throughout - the car kicked up dirt as she drove down the road, but who the fuck cares? It has nothing to do with the current overly detailed conversation she's having on the phone. It didn't segue into anything. In a book that tops out at 750 pages, there is no good reason for filler bullshit that draws you out of the story due to its pure inanity.

But wait, there's more! So the h meets the H and it's literally the most bizarre conversation. She is of course dumbstruck by his oh so handsome appearance and he goes on this brown nosing slash worshipping rant about how smart and awesome she must be and he's heard rumors about her awsum speshulness. I swear the guy was like a puppy, he was damn near piddling the floor. But not in a "oh wow, this woman is so incredible it's intimidating" kind of thing, but more like a "let's reinforce the idea of how awesome this woman is by making a stranger gush about her like a 12 year old meeting Pam Anderson" kinda thing.

This was incredibly frustrating to read and I gave up before I made much headway. Nothing was really happening and there were so many pointless infodumps that I actually forgot what book I was reading and had to check the blurb again.

I am accepting of a lot of shitty writing, but this is just so bad. Everything about it just bugs the shit out of me.

The Playground
The Playground - Ray Bradbury

This was interesting, but once I realized where it was heading, there weren't really any surprises left.

 

The main character's motivation was a little questionable, personally. It is hard to tell, however, how realistic his concern actually was; he seemed a bit of an unreliable narrator to me, and I'm not sure what he was really seeing on the titular playground and what he was imagining in his head or taking extremely out of context. Is this a dystopian future where playgrounds are terrifying or is he an overly-concerned helicopter parent?

 

The ending was odd, though not really out of place with the rest of the story. I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to make of it. It had a Twilight Zone-esque twist, but I'm not sure I really liked the twist as much as I wanted to.

 

I haven't read any Bradbury in years and years, so this was a nice starting point back into his work.
