Wild in Love (The Maverick Billionaires, #5) by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully
Wild in Love - Jennifer Skully,Bella Andre

 

The beauty of The Maverick Billionaires series is that it not only entertains, but it inspires. The collaboration of Andre and Skully packs powerful messages of love and courage in tempting stories of alpha males and determined females. Wild in Love is Daniel's chance at a happy ending. Daniel is looking for the perfect girl. What he finds is a wounded soul that speaks to his heart, but is determined to keep her's closed off. Tasha had the perfect life, only to find it wasn't as perfect as she believed. Now a loner with a crack in her heart and the weight of the world on her shoulders, she sets about atoning for the sins of others, as she creates a new life for herself. Will the man who dreams of perfection, find his dream girl in the woman that's forgotten how to dream? In life there is no perfection. Happiness lies in being true to yourself. Powerful tale of redemption and second chances.

Release Day Review! Ram Wild (Ares Cursed #2 / Zodiac Shifters) Decadent Kane!
Ram Wild - Decadent Kane

 

 

A nymph outcast tied to the land…


Echo is a curvy nymph, the black sheep of her kind. She doesn’t steal men. She even cut herself off from most of the world, except her forest. And Fahd, a magic eater, is consuming the essence within her trees. There’s only one way to stop him, the golden fleece. It took her nearly a year to get her hands on the fleece. And not even a day for the sexy ram shifter, Jace, to find her. However, she won’t be giving the fleece over lightly. Echo’s determined to give him the fight of his immortal life, but she’s worried it’s her own attraction she has to control.


A ram shifter cursed by Aries to never stay in one place…


Jace Argo is an Aries Guardian with one task; protect the mythical golden fleece. When the fleece is stolen right from under his nose, Jace traipses into the forest after the thief. He didn’t expect to run into a raven-haired nymph. He has four days before his curse forces him to leave town with or without the fleece. He will pull out every arsenal in his box of male charms to get what he wants.


A stolen mythical fleece brings them together, everything else will tear them apart.



This book stands alone within the series.

 

 

Ram Wild is a fun and adventurous romance that brings spice to the reader’s life. Everyone that reads the Zodiac Shifters series knows that there are lots of shifter variety to be found in the series and that each book is enhanced by the Zodiac mythology with each author’s books having their own unique elements that make them even more enjoyable for the readers.

 

Decadent Kane’s Ram Wild certainly has all of the above and while the story is full of suspense and thrills that keep readers on the edge of their seats with a pretty scary evil that needs to be vanquished and an unpredictable romance to sweeten the story, this book also has a ‘quest’ feel to the story that brings in the fun and adventure that I mentioned above which certainly spices things up.

 

Jace and Echo are strong, captivating characters that had me enthralled from the very beginning and held me hostage to the very end and I can’t wait to read more books in the Ares Cursed series of the Zodiac Shifters. Did I mention that I really love the Ares, curses, and ram shifters elements of the story because it is so very different from other stories and is in fact the first book that I have read about ram shifters.

 

 

 

Ram Wild is the 2nd book in the Ares Cursed series and part of the Zodiac Shifters series!

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail - Cheryl Strayed

I did not like Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail very much.  I just couldn’t get past Cheryl Strayed’s unpreparedness for long-distance hiking and found her a distasteful person who I didn’t particularly want to spend time with.  I also found the narrative disorganized and the insights she gained from her journey pedestrian. If Wild hadn’t been the selection for my office book club, I probably would not have finished the book.  As it was, partway through I stopped reading and started skimming.

 

Several of my co-workers also didn’t like Wild very much either, including one person who said that she expected much more from the author of Tiny Beautiful Things (which I have not read).  A number of others hadn’t finished, but had seen the movie, so we spent as much time comparing the book to the movie and discussing other wilderness journey movies as discussing the book itself.

 

In other news, the office book club appears to be turning into a book-to-movie club, which isn’t actually such a bad thing. Our first selection was Room, our second was Wild, and our next choice is The Immortal Life of Henrietta LacksThe Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a re-read for me (I listened to the audiobook a few years ago). I’m looking forward to re-reading it and  I’m interested to hear what the others think. And we’ll see how the scheduling goes, but we’re also starting to kick around the idea of a movie night where we watch the movies and talk some more.

[Book Review] White Fang & Call of the Wild: Why London isn't a good writer.
White Fang - Jack London
The Call of the Wild - Jack London

Well, well, well. Here we have two books that are classics, as well as absolute disappointments. The only reason I ever picked up a Jack London novel is because they are assigned in 7th and 8th grade honors English. And let's be honest, they are terrible. Why they're classics is a mystery to me. I do know that COTW was one of the first really commercial books (besides things like the Bible or etc.) and had lots of positive uproar. However, that was back then. This is now. Writing has evolved, people have changed. This book should NOT be a classic. Books like Dracula or Murder on the Orient Express are creative enough and written well enough to be a good choice to read now. Absolutely none of London's books are this way, I am upset that in the education system, they believe a 170 page novel about a dog/wolf thing that's written terribly is a good thing to assign to the gifted students in exchange for books like The Great Gatsby or To Kill a Mockingbird, that, in my school, even if you're an honors student, don't read until 10th/11th grade, and by then you aren't being challenged enough. Not that you were to start with, anyways. 

 

Now, in both White Fang & Call of the Wild, the writing is terrible. Sure, London uses some big words and goes into detail of one thing for three whole pages, but it doesn't make any sense! I'm fine with a paragraph of detail for something that's important, but you don't need more than 2-3 sentences to describe a tree, for goodness' sake. If you take out all of the unseeded filler, you're left with a 50 page book, that isn't worth a read anyways. Also, the plot development is terrible and the actions of each character don't seem to have a reason or explanation. It goes from one scene to another with little to no transition. The dialogue, also, is horrendous. I understand that people used to talk like they do in London's novels, and that's not on him, it's more on the people that make the revised editions before sending them out. They leave it there, and it just seems like a bunch of illiterate characters talking. If the people speak like that, why can the dogs think in perfect English?

 

Now, the plots are fine. The development is fine in the beginning, but by the time London gets to the end of the book, you can tell he was done with it. It's rushed with little to no detail, and comes to an abrupt end. A long beginning, short end, and boring middle does not make an acceptable classic book. 

 

Now, with Jack London's history. I know that the books are more lifelike as he actually experienced many of the things he writes about, but he was never an author. His books were so bad that they got rejected for years by many publishers and magazines, until he finally got COTW published. It was a hit, and so was White Fang, but many of the others he wrote never really got popular. Even though they were famous, though, they were not good. Like the last two Divergent novels, or the couple Harry Potter books that didn't quite live up to the name. But anyway, Jack London was never a writer. He even claimed once that he was not good at reading or writing for a while before he actually wrote his first few short stories.

 

Anyway, if you have the choice, I wouldn't read these. They're a snooze-fest. Unless you want to read them because their classics or you actually have enjoyed London's work. Though, some of his short stories are better than his books.

Great Read
Legs (One Wild Wish, #1) - Kelly Siskind

Legs is my first book by Kelly Siskind, so I didn't know what to expect.  What a great surprise.  Ms. Siskind has delivered a well-written book.  It is written in first person, alternating point of view, not my favorite, but it worked in this book.  I totally love the characters and humor in this book.  Jimmy and Rachel's story is laugh-out-loud funny with plenty of drama, smokin' hot sex and tiny bit of angst.  This book hooked me from the start and held me captive until the end.  I enjoyed reading Legs and look forward to reading more from Kelly Siskind in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
