Fun Read!
Lip Action (Kiss Talent Agency Book 1) - Virna DePaul

Lip Action is a fun contemporary romance by Virna DePaul.  Ms. DePaul has given readers a well-written story and furnished it with outstanding characters.  Marissa is being pressured to go back to her ex by her mother.  Simon is up for a starring role in a new movie but needs to shine up his reputation with a steady girlfriend.  Simon and Marissa's story is loaded with drama, humor, snark and sizzle.  This book is written in first person, alternating point of view format, not my favorite.  Ok, actually I hate it.  But, Ms. DePaul made it work in this story.  I enjoyed reading Lip Action and look forward to reading more from Virna DePaul in the future.  Lip Action is book 1 of the Kiss Talent Agency Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Sometimes the simplest of messages can mean so much...to me this story is all about its message...
Sky in the Deep - Adrienne Young

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Part Wonder Woman, part Vikings—and all heart.
 
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.
 
Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
 
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
 
 
 
 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
While this story's message is a well-known one but, it's still an important one.  The reviews for this are all over the place, some loved and some did not even like.  I obviously really liked it, maybe possibly loved it, even.  Some said it was cliché, and not true to the Viking heritage...I didn't feel that way at all (not that I'm super knowledgeable about Viking heritage).  I believe if you go into this thinking that is Viking-inspired and not true Viking, you won't set yourself up for disappointment. 

Maybe, it was the narration that made me so invested in this story...the narration is excellently done, after all.  Maybe it's the fact that it is a stand-alone...I do love stand-alone's.  I think it's both of these things actually...plus the vivid writing and I seriously loved Fiske, and truly loved Eelyn and Fiske together.   éé

Vigilante Assassin (Jake Wolfe Book 2) by Mark Nolan
Vigilante Assassin: An Action Thriller - Mark Nolan

Jake Wolfe and his service dog Cody are back, and all he wants is a quiet life. But life has other plans for him and once again he is embroiled in yet another thrilling story. Murder, kidnappings and twists that will keep you an the edge of your seat, you are definitely in for a thrilling read.

 

What starts out as a missing husband soon becomes so much more, when he is found dead in a secret room in the house. This starts a chain of events that involve Jake and Cody delving deep into car chases, gun fights and kidnappings. For me Cody stole the show  – I loved him the first book and even more so in this one, the relationship that he has with his master Jake is something else and I have heard a lot about the abilities of military service dogs which Nolan manged to convey brilliantly.

 

I was critical of the first book being too long, but now in hindsight I can see why as it really set Jake’s character and delved deep into his past – whilst you do not need to have read Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie before as this is easily a stand alone, I do recommend reading it though as it will give you a better insight to why Jake is the person he is now,

Book Review: Dark Rivers by Brice Morgan
Dark Rivers (Witchbane, #2)Dark Rivers by Morgan Brice
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book of Morgan Brice that I've read and the second full Witchbane book (there is a novella in between one and two), and I can honestly say the author keeps getting better and better. In this book they deliver on the promise made in Witchbane, with more back story of both Seth and Evan as well as a fleshing out of a great plot. The world building continues and it is one amazing world they are creating.

In a continuation of Witchbane and Burn, the novella, the main characters Seth Tanner and Evan Malone are continuing to hunt for the witch-disciples of Rhyfel Gremory, and this time their hunt takes them to Pittsburgh, PA, right before Christmas. But there are complications to this hunt. Serious complications in the form of a hardcore hunter team consisting of an ex-priest and an ex-FBI agent who have a vested interest in this hunt. And then there's the specter from Evan's past, the abusive ex-boyfriend turned stalker.

The book kept me on the edge of my seat, the love scenes were hot, the new characters introduced very interesting (I have hopes to see a pairing of the ex-priest and the FBI guy coz that's kinda a thing for me) and the action kept me turning the pages.

Even though the book takes place around Christmas, it was a perfectly spooky read for Halloween night!

Release Week Review! Wolf Rising (SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team #8) Paige Tyler!

 

 

Werewolf SWAT Officer Jayden Brooks has yet to meet The One—but when he rescues teacher Selena Rosa from a hostage situation at her high school, he knows he’s in trouble. Her scent is irresistible.

 

There’s a reason for that powerful scent—and it isn’t an expensive perfume. Thanks to the traumatizing events at the school, the werewolf gene flipped on and Selena’s going through the change. Even scarier, she’s on track to become an omega—an out-of-control and violent breed. It’s going to take everything Brooks has if he wants any chance to pull her back from the edge…and ultimately win her heart.

 

 

SWAT – Sexy, Wonderful, Awesome, Terrific – that is what else the letters for SWAT can be in regards to the newest mission for these werewolves. Jayden’s in trouble when he catches the most irresistible scent of the high school teacher he rescues and Selena’s werewolf gene has flipped on in the wake of the traumatic experience. Together these two strong, dynamic characters have a sizzling chemistry that not only electrifies the pages but the readers as well while they take on all the turmoil and changes that they find themselves in. This relationship is scorching hot and quite sweet and readers easily become enamored with Jayden and Selena and want to know every last detail of their story.

 

Twist and turns, sweet romance and life altering changes can be found throughout this fast paced plot with lots of explosive excitement and thrilling suspense that keeps readers on the edge of their seat as hunters stalk the werewolves, a wedding turns deadly and cops betray their own. This series just keeps getting better and better and I find that I want to read it over and over and over again because I can’t get enough of all the sexy werewolves, wonderful romance, awesome twists and terrific plots that the author keeps creating in her fascinating world that has its own werewolf SWAT team which really just can’t get any sexier than it already is and did I mention HAWT!
