Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Shadows (A Lux Novel) - Jennifer L. Armentrout

I hated the ending but loved the story.
In this we learn what happened to Dawson, the brother who died. I'm glad I read it after Obsidian, The abruptness didn't matter so much, since it was a backstory.
I'm devastated the brother died though. He was so sweet, but a little stupid too. Well, love can make us stupid, can't it?!
If you've read Obsidian, read this. You'll be glad you did.

The Whale Rider - Witi Ihimaera

My copy of Whale Rider arrived today. I watched the movie years ago, and I enjoyed it. Until recently, I didn't know that the movie was originally a book. So I went out and search for a copy on the internet. It wasn't easy since most of the bookstores I came across didn't have any copies in stock or if they have any, the prices were ridiculously high. I finally found a used copy in "very good" condition for a low price and free shipping.

 

I'm surprised how the book is in excellent condition for something labeled "very good" and costs under $5.

 

I wish I could read it now, but I'm still busy with other books.

Book Review: The Reluctant Husband (Goddess Blessed Book 2) by Eliot Grayson
The Reluctant Husband (Goddess-Blessed, #2)The Reluctant Husband by Eliot Grayson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I read by Eliot Grayson and I was thoroughly captivated. I read this as a stand-alone, not realizing there was a book 1 before it. I would recommend reading book 1 first, as the main character of the second book apparently was a bit of a cad in the first and by the time I realized this my heart was invested in the 'cad's' happiness.

The writing is both period and easy to follow along with. The universe is well thought out and the mythology that Grayson comes up with is really well done. If I had one complaint it would be that some of the secondary characters were left hanging so to speak, particularly the odious one that caused a certain event to happen. I was hoping to see him get his comeuppance. I would also have liked to see the MC's past be revealed to his husband, given how much it affected the story.

The main character and 'cad' Tom Drake is a disowned, soon to be divorced, rake and ne'er do well. Except he really isn't - a cad that is. He'd been taught to be ashamed of what he was, a man with the blessing of a very specific goddess. His past was what caused him to act like a cad, an attempt to run from the goddess and from what he'd been taught he was from a very early age. Sadly, it got him into a lot of hot water and now Tom was reaping the benefits from his past.

Down to his last guinea, the only thing Tom has left to barter is his body - and of course the person who wants him only seems to want him for his not so accurate reputation... until Malcolm Leighton sees the mark of the goddess upon Tom and realizes he could be of a different sort of use. For the blessing of the goddess - prosperity, good fortune and good health - automatically transfers to the family of the one blessed. Except Tom had pretty much done any and everything to earn her wrath, not her blessing. Not that Malcolm realizes that at the time, all he sees is a way to save his dying cousin by marrying Tom.

The goddess, however, doesn't believe in sham marriages and the two are forced to exist as a truly married couple in order for the blessing to work. But is it too late? And when Tom finally risks a heart that has been badly hurt and betrayed from the time he was a young child, will Malcolm see the man he truly is, or will he still continue to believe the mask that Tom has been forced to wear his entire life?

I definitely recommend this series, but do start with book 1 if you can :D

Book Review for Havoc by Ambere Sabo
Havoc (Silent Sons MC #2) - Ambere Sabo

 

 

  • This story was yet another great read filled with suspense,drama,betrayals,secrets and was filled with a whole lot of unanswered questions.This story just got hotter and even more suspenseful as now the Silent Sons have reached out and asked another club about working together to take out a common enemy but, also help them find a traitor or traitor's to bring them to justice for crimes committed against others and MC Clubs.
  •  
  • Havoc- I found him to be a bit of a wild card who is set on revenge but, most of all his one main goal is to right the wrongs of the past committed by other's and see that his best friend Cessy is protected and the threats against her eliminated.Havoc is a former member of the Reaper's MC yet now residing with the Silent Sons MC so he has a sake in solving the mystery before them for the sake of both clubs involved.
  •  
  • Havoc and Angel teamed up to solve this quest and bring justice to all parties involved but, for Angels it helped her to put her past to rest so that she can move on and embrace her new life.
  •  
  • Angel & Havoc had some major chemistry together .This duo made a great couple who were perfect for one another in and out of bed.Angel would make the perfect old lady but, she will never be owned by a man again.Havoc was just one of those characters that you just could love, but, that man was hot as hell and even sexier and carried wounds of his own which made him have a better understanding of all that Angel has suffered at the hands of others.
  •  
  • Overall just loved it.You will laugh and cry and the story was filled with a ton of emotion. Havoc and Angel burned up the sheets making the story hotter than hell and the love story a bit usual but, throughout all the chaos there was also healing and love and forgiveness and about letting go ones past in order to embrace the here and now and enjoy it with the one you now call your soul mate.

Book Review for Cessy by Ambere Sabo
Cessy (Silent Sons MC #1) - Ambere Sabo

 

 

We are loving this series so far and Cessy story really starting the series off with a bang.
 
Cessy is a club princess of another club called the Reapers but, she is seeking help from the Silent Sons MC president Rodeo hoping he can help her solve a bit of a mystery surrounding her club and in the process find out more about her fathers involvement and death.
 
Cessy learns details of some happenings going on in her club and can not believe her club would be party to the things she learned but, she cannot trust anyone so with the help of Havoc and The Silent sons she hopes to get answers and stay alive long enough to learn them.
 
Cessy-We found her to be a little biker riding badass with a ton of tat's who was badass with a gun.We loved Cessy as she was brave,determined ,sexy as sin,funny,a bit of a spit fire who had a feisty personality and is a speak her mind kind of girl. Cessy's aura is one that says "Don't Mess With Me or You'll Regret Attitude!"
 
Venom-Venom is a club Enforcer who was somewhat of a solitary guy who doesn't like to share.We found him to be broody and sexy and dangerous and protective as hell but, also he could be compassionate kind and loving as well.
 
Venom and Cessy had a passionate love affair that was riddled with secrets,lies and betrayals but, one thing was sure they were perfect for one another.This couple has major chemistry and a whole lot of fireworks between them.One word says it all "Super Hot!"
 
Overall we absolutely loved the story from to beginning end.The story was full of action had tons of suspense and drama and had a great cast of character's that we really enjoyed getting to know.This was just one of those stories that sucked you right in from the very beginning .This story will be continuing on into Havoc's story and we can't wait to see what will happen next.
 
After reading this series it is not one that should be read out of order.Once you read the first book you will be automatically be hooked !
