New Release Review! Maverick (Cat Star Legacy #1) Cheryl Brooks!
Maverick - Cheryl Brooks

 

 

Zetithians are back. And they're hotter than ever...

 

Having the Zetithian feline gene gives Larry Tshevnoe awesome beauty, fearsome strength, sensuality and sexual prowess unmatched by any other males in the universe. But it can make the quest for true love...complicated.

 

Enter childhood friend and fellow Zetithian Althea Banadänsk. Her empathic powers make her the only one who can show Larry what he truly desires, and she'll do anything to help...even if that means hiding her desperate craving for him.

 

But when a distress call sends them off course—and into danger—they find more than their hearts are at stake. Now it's up to them to become the champions of truth and justice throughout the galaxy...or risk losing it all.

 

Cat Star Legacy Series:


Maverick (Book 1)

 

What People are Saying about Cheryl Brooks:
"Out-of-this-world sexy...the ultimate reading experience."—Long and Short Reviews


"Scorching hot...keeps you turning pages."—RT Book Reviews


"Wildly imaginative, highly entertaining, and sure to become a classic."—Star-Crossed Romance

 


The Zetithian felines are back along with a whole host of other aliens in this hot, spicy and adventurous cosmic romance. Larry and Althea are bold and fierce characters that easily draw readers into their world as a distress call sets on a path into danger. Larry and Althea’s romance is a bit unexpected (for them) as they fight their sizzling undeniable attraction with snarky wit and Althea’s empathic powers add a whole other dimension to this relationship as she sets out to help him discover what he truly desires. The relationship is feisty with quite a bit of turbulence that certainly keeps things interesting during this courtship while they become the champions of truth and justice throughout the galaxy.

 

Surprising twists adds to the exhilarating and adrenaline pumping adventure, thrilling suspense and fascinating alien elements found in this steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot. The varying planet settings are well developed and the author paints vivid images of her world so that the readers can easily imagine each and every setting as they get to know all the fascinating characters involved which makes it easy for readers to become caught up in this sexy space adventure. Some unique alien features, some of which are on the sensual and racy side add to the hotness factor of this read and I quite fascinated by the ideas put forth in Larry Althea’s romantic escapades, which has me quite curious and looking forward to visiting more of this intriguing world.

The Ask and the Answer / Patrick Ness
The Ask and the Answer - Patrick Ness

We were in the square, in the square where I'd run, holding her, carrying her, telling her to stay alive, stay alive till we got safe, till we got to Haven so I could save her - But there weren't no safety, no safety at all, there was just him and his men...

Fleeing before a relentless army, Todd has carried a desperately wounded Viola right into the hands of their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss. Immediately separated from Viola and imprisoned, Todd is forced to learn the ways of the Mayor's new order. But what secrets are hiding just outside of town? And where is Viola? Is she even still alive? And who are the mysterious Answer? And then, one day, the bombs begin to explode...

 

 

I read this book for the Doomsday square on my 2018 Halloween Bingo card.

I have become quite partial to Patrick Ness’s writing, having loved A Monster Calls and thoroughly enjoying The Knife of Never Letting Go. The Ask and the Answer is a solid follow-up to TKONLG, showing us more of this non-Earth world where humanity and the aliens that they call The Spackle must find terms of co-existence and human men must learn to deal with the Noise germ, which makes their thoughts visible/audible to everyone around them. As we learn more about the aliens, we realize that they are dependent upon on the Noise to communicate with one another, but it causes major privacy concerns for human men; for some reason, the germ doesn’t affect women.

But privacy of thought is only one concern in this world—the Mayor of Prentisstown, where Todd grew up, is out to become president of the whole world and he doesn’t care what happens to people who get in his way. He recognizes Todd as a person of principles, who may do something wrong but gets back up and tries to set it right or do better. This second installment sees Prentiss try to recruit Todd to his cause, mostly manipulating him through his loyalty to Viola. I think it is also admirable that Todd is able to identify his emotions and admit that he loves Viola and to stand by her. So often, I feel like men and boys are encouraged to refuse to acknowledge their feelings, leaving the women in their lives wondering if they care at all. I guess this is one benefit of the Noise—Viola knows that Todd loves her.

The differences in the way that Noise affects women and men naturally divides them. Prentiss can’t trust women, because he can’t know what’s going on in their heads. As a result, women find themselves separated and confined quite quickly, which naturally makes the women fearful, resentful, and unwilling to go along with his program. But women aren’t going to take the change in government without a struggle—many women go into hiding and provide violent opposition. Then we get to explore the whole who is a freedom fighter and who is a terrorist question. Both sides twist logic to convince their followers.

I think this would be a great book for high school students, showing conflicts in all their grayness, very little black and white. For although I as a reader identified with Todd & Viola, they do regrettable things along the way and those who think they are on the right side are willing to do violence to make their opinions known. There are so many ethical and moral questions explored, it would make for lively discussions.

If you dislike cliff-hanger endings, you should have the next book teed up and ready to go. I’m willing to let things rest for a while at this point and will probably pick up the last book in early 2019. My reading queue is full until then.

Reading progress update: I've read 451 out of 553 pages.
The Ask and the Answer - Patrick Ness

 

 

So many themes that are prominent today, featured in a fictional universe where young people could discuss them without all the political baggage of our reality.

 

I think this would be an excellent series for schools.

Review! Interplanetary Love by Shelley Munro!
Interplanetary Love - Shelley Munro

 

 

I know your secret…

 

Ekim Ramuk is a vid-star on the planet Nidni. Along with fame and currency comes his reputation as Nidni’s greatest lover—one that causes him acute embarrassment and anxiety because not one of the rumors is true.

 

Carly Abercombie is an Earth cop who works long hours and craves a man to hold her in the small hours of the night. She doesn’t require perfect. Mr. Almost Perfect will do, but finding him—that’s another problem entirely. In desperation, she signs up with Interplanetary Love and heads off to Nidni to meet her first date.

 

Rala Ramuk, Ekim’s baby sister, has problems of her own. Her brother! Determined to marry him off so she can move forward with her own life, according to Goddess Peti’s rules, she’s signed Ekim up with the Interplanetary Love dating agency. Anything to secure her future.

 

A vid-star, a cop and a matchmaker. Three strong personalities, all determined to win. Let the dice roll and the fun begin…

 

Warning: This book contains a tongue-in-cheek plot, a little purple-tinged prose and a man-part named Rajah. You have been warned.

 

 

Ekim’s reputation as a vid-star causes him acute embarrassment and anxiety. Carly craves a man to hold her and in desperation signs up with Interplanetary Love. To secure her future, Rala signs her brother up with the dating agency. Let the dice roll and the fun begin…

 

This sci-fi romance is a chuckle worthy fun and charming romance that is full of delightful characters, cosmic passion and clever dialogue. The romance has a few obstacles, a couple of which are real doozies which has some emotional turmoil flowing from the pages and the reader can’t help but connect to the characters as they twist each other and readers up. Although on the short side, this smooth flowing plot is fast paced and entertaining as Rala keeps surprising readers with her machinations and the issues that go along with being a vid-star interfere in this romance. I was delighted with this story and couldn’t quit smiling and snickering all through to the conclusion.

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world. Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Release Week Review! Belonging in the Dragon (Dragon Lovers #2 / Lick of Fire) Kara Lockharte!
Belonging to the Dragon - Kara Lockharte

 

 

He claims I'm his MATE...but I'm not the housekeeper's daughter anymore.
My name is Lana Rodriguez and I am DONE with dragons.

Especially my childhood friend, rich boy Lucas Randall, who claims I’m his mate.

So what if he’s more than six feet of stupefying ripped muscle and bedroom-I-know-you-Lana eyes.

I’m not the housekeeper’s daughter anymore.

No Randall is going to dictate my life again.

Not even if every atom in my messed up body wants him.

I’ve got secrets he can’t ever find out.

To mate the dragon is to condemn him to death. Lucas doesn’t know what I am. But he will if he’s around me much longer.

I won’t let that happen.

Because I’m a monster now too.

 

Note: This book is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real life dragon shifter billionaires or anything else else is purely coincidental. Hot sexy times included.

 

 

 

Lana Rodriguez is done with dragons, especially Lucas Randall and in this delightfully exciting story readers will discover whether Lana is really his mate and whether or not she can stay away.

 

This fast paced story flows smoothly throughout as it draws readers in and holds them hostage throughout with strong, captivating characters, red hot passion, thrilling danger and adrenaline pumping excitement. Lana and Lucas are convincing in their relationship as they pursue their respective goals but really the chemistry between these two sizzle and has sparks flying in all directions that they can’t deny the attraction. The evil that they pursue wreaks havoc with thrilling and malicious events that keeps readers biting their nails in horror and anticipation and with the surprising twists that it throws in this couple’s face, there is definitely a never moment. Although, it may have been better if the story had been longer and the plot and romance fleshed out a bit more, I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning.

Kara Lockharte is the author of the Lick of Fire - Dragon Lovers series and the Space Shifter Chronicles. She loves writing romances with sexy alpha alien shifters and strong heroines. She doesn't really like writing bios about herself because she can't think of anything clever or funny to say.

 

Though she can think of something her 4 year old said to her today which was:

"Mom, there's something funny about summer camp." (Upon going to half-day summer camp for the first time this year.)


"What's that?"


"You don't actually go camping in summer camp. Did you know that?"


"Umm..."

 

Ok, it was a lot funnier and cuter when the 4-year-old said it. But it's late because she's been working on this website since the kids went to bed and she has to get up stupid-early. The thing she has learned about really young kids is: they wake up stupid-early and expect you to feed them.

 

Kara and her family live on Planet Earth.
