Beginning
The Cheat - Marita A. Hansen

Lucy and Riley have a secret.  Lucy hates Riley, but he is her guilty pleasure.  She is crazy attracted to him and can't seem to stop herself.  If has ruined her high school years, so far.

 

Riley lives right next door.  The hockey star, and all around best looking student.  He needs her help now.  He wants to do all he can to stay on the team.  This could be Lucy's chance for some payback.

 

Such a short but very hot story.  These characters have an extremely shocking attraction.  I found myself strangely enthralled.  Now I cannot wait to read the next installment in this soon to be epic series.  I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Epic - Elle Kennedy,Sarina Bowen

This book is #2.5, in the Him series.  This book should not be read as a standalone.  It is best to read these in order and appreciate the goodness that is this incredible series.

 

We go back to the lives of Wes & Jamie.  It is short and sweet but like all stories in the Him series, it is worth every moment.  Jamie is at a crossroads about to move up in his Coaching job. 

 

Wes is still doing what he does best.  Loving Jamie and making headlines as a star.  Now with their lives ahead of them - the best really is yet to come.  I love every visit we have to this series.  Was overjoyed to spend time with this amazing couple.  I give this read a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

VELOCITIES: STORIES by Kathe Koja
Velocities: Stories - Kathe Koja

VELOCITIES: STORIES is a diverse, energetic and mysterious collection of stories by a woman who has mastered the art of storytelling. 

 

I am a latecomer to Kathe Koja's work, having only read one novel to date, which was SKIN. It was quite far out of my comfort zone, but as such, her writing was like a revelation to me. When I saw this collection available as an ARC I requested it right away and here we are. 

 

Not all of the tales within worked for me, but in collections they rarely do. The stories that did work, worked so very well, they left me hungry for more. 

 

THE MARBLE LILY was my favorite tale in this volume. A story about a janitor working in the morgue has never been so mysterious and hidden such surprises.

 

ROAD TRIP is the story of a man looking for redemption. I don't think it can be found. 

 

LA REINE D'ENFER is a disturbing tale worthy of the title HELL QUEEN. The use of slang and language here was a wonder to behold. 

 

COYOTE PASS When a full time carer loses their patient, blood relative or not, it leaves a void. 

 

FAR AND WEE for me, had a distinct feel to it that I cannot describe. A farm boy comes to the city and says he's done with the farm and the beasts. "Plenty beasts in the City, young man." 

 

Kathe Koja uses language in such a way...it's very special. Sometimes sharp and staccato-like, sometimes lush and luxurious. Either way, her writing is magical and I plan to eventually read everything she has written. 

 

My highest recommendation!

 

Available April 2020, but you can pre-order here: VELOCITIES: STORIES

 

*Thank you to Meerkat Press via Edelweiss for the e-ARC of this collection in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it!*

The Thiefy by Jessica Brody & Joanne Rendell

Chatine.
What a girl.
I wanted to keep reading. I wanted to know where she went next and what happened along the way. I could literally read about her all day, following where she went and what she got up to.
She's clever, and you know she is a good girl. You see where she is gonna go with her decisions though. Will she get through it?
Yup, I want to read more for sure!!
A great intro into the first book in the series.
