Eve: The Awakening by Jenna Moreci
Eve: The Awakening - Jenna Moreci

This was a self published book. I admit, that I have not read many self pub books, mainly because I have had bad experiences and funds are low, so if I get a book, I want to be sure I will really like it.

 

I picked up this book through Amazon Unlimited, and really could not put it down. It changed my whole view on self pub books. There are good books out there, you just have to know where to look!

 

The reason I picked this one up because I stumbled across the author's YouTube page, looking for writing related videos. Jenna Moreci is very fun to watch and most of her info is very useful. I got her book, hoping so bad that the book would be good.

It was! I read it almost in one sitting, staying up all night. I had to finally put it down and finish the last 10% later because I was really sleep deprived.

Want a good book? Pick this one. Trust me. This is supposed to be a series, but the first book ended in a way where it could also be read as a stand-alone, in my opinion. I really want more though!

 

Now I am very willing to read self published books when I find ones I think sound good.

Kane's Awakening
Kane's Awakening - Jaclyn Osborn

After months of teasing, postings about her discussions with Kane, and images of these two characters, we finally got an early release for this third installment in the Awakening Series.  While this can be read as a standalone, the characters from the other books make appearances.  The other two books were good. I loved Michael, probably the best, as a character, but Jackson was a perfect match for dear Zach.  And while both books were entertaining, neither held the grit that this one did for me.  Part of it may be that I immediately fell hard for both characters.  From their initial meeting, they were undeniably explosive together.

 

Kane was perfectly portrayed as an abused man with so many emotional walls. After a quite abusive relationship in his teen years, he shut himself completely off from any type of emotional connection with anyone and it is not until Ryker that the walls start to shatter. Ryker is just the perfect pairing for being able to see through the bullshit and see into the truth that is in Kane’s heart.

 

I’d built a wall around my heart and locked it inside an impenetrable barrier, but he seemed to have the damn key.

 

  

Ryker…absolutely perfect image.

 

There are some rough scenes between these two. Some harsh words and difficult situations and there are moments when you want to smack Kane upside the head and make him see reason. But there are the tender aww moments too that make you see inside of Kane and see exactly what Ryker sees.  #singlerose

 

And while there is the infamous drama around 85%...it worked for me.  There were issues and doubts from both parties and again trust is something that does not come easily for some and with Ryker’s history it was something that needed to be addressed.

 

Overall, this was just so well-crafted and told in such a beautiful way.  They grew as a couple and formed such a strong relationship knowing and loving the bad with the good.  It worked.

 

“Because dammit, Kane, you’re all I want. You are everything in a man that infuriates the hell out of me, but I keep coming back for more. Even though you’re stubborn and have asshole tendencies… even though you’re unfiltered and arrogant… I see you. The real you.” He smiled before pressing our heads together. “I’m aware of how stupid that sounds, but it’s true. There are moments when you look at me where I see your kind heart and your passion. Sometimes there’s a light in your eyes after I kiss you, one that you then hide.”

I couldn’t speak, so I stayed quiet and just let him do the talking.

“And the way I feel around you is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before,” he continued, pulling back and looking into my eyes. “I can’t get you out of my head, and I’m tired of fighting it. You might be an asshole… but I want you to be my asshole.”

 

And an asshole you can’t help but love to pieces.

 

Ryker smiled. “You ramble a lot when you’re nervous.”

“I’m not nervous.” I looked into his blue eyes and felt my heart twinge. He was too damn handsome. “Okay, maybe I am a little. Throwing you on the bed and fucking you senseless is easy, but taking you out to dinner makes my palms all sweaty.”

 

 

I adored the relationships they held with their families as well.  And while unconventional, everything seemed so genuine and real.  As for Devon…I wanted to kick his ass but I also kinda want his “Awakening” as well.  LOL He has a story to tell for sure.

 

And as a sidenote, I loved the addition of the relationship with Nemesis.  Such a beautiful way to show the love and understanding Kane has in his heart and a sort of recognition of the life he has had.  He is to Nem as Ryker is to him.  Heartwarming to say the least.

 

 

**Highly Recommended**

Review For: SAVAGE by L. A. Fiore
Savage: The Awakening of Lizzie Danton - L A Fiore

 

SAVAGE by L. A. Fiore is the story of Brochan and Lizzie.
Please make sure you understand that this is a Dark Romance and is not for everyone. I happen to like them and this was a really good one. I was happy to find this book.
Both Brochan and Elizabeth (Lizzie) started with a hard and sad life. Their lives never really got better I think until they meet. They both had so much to overcome from their past and present. But when these two halves come together this made into a great dark romance story.
Ms. Fiore writing is new to me but after reading this book I hope to find more of her books.

Horror That Tackles The Mind
Monstress Volume 1: Awakening - Marjorie M. Liu
A teenage girl searching for answers on her mother’s death and the horror that is transforming her mind and body.

 

Once you get into this graphic novel, which might take a little bit, the characters are likeable and some horrible.  They make you feel the way you should which terror, fear and a little hope for our main character.

 

The art is good reminds me of anime and manga. Only thing it is the type anime manga art I dislike.  I am not a fan of the gory, and bloody art. Maybe that is because in high school art class we watched the anime Akira over and over.  It was really gross and that is how I found some of the art. It’s really great art just not a fan of the theme.  

 

I read this because I heard good things about it and Neil Gaiman had a good quote about it.  I will probably read volume two to find out what happens.  Once I got through the beginning which is a little vague in storytelling wise but starts to come together at the end.  Still worth a read.

Fun paranormal romance
Fox's Awakening (Enchanted Immortals Book 2) - F.G. Adams,Julia Goda

Fox's Awakening is the second book in the Enchanted Immortals Trilogy and picks up where book one, Aldin's Wish left off. While I would recommend reading the books in order to get the full impact of everything going on with these characters, it can be read as a standalone. 

Fox wasn't a major character in the first book, but he did make an impact and I was excited to see his story. The book is fast-paced with lots of action and plenty of steam as Fox and his goddesses get acquainted - umm, reacquainted? (Too much on that would give spoilers, so I'll just leave it alone.)

Adams is a talented writer and weaves an exciting tale with this second book in the trilogy. The story is told in multiple points of view and will keep you on your toes as things progress with Baako and a romance blooms.

All in all, this second book is a fun paranormal romance with lots of action to keep a reader turning pages.
