Picked Off
Picked Off - Linda Lovely

This was a good follow up to the first book in the series. Brie is back and this time she is investigating why someone would want to attack the son of her aunt's best friend. Of course her investigation will lead her to be in danger.

 

I really liked reading about Brie, her Aunt Eva, and her friends. I enjoyed how they all came together to investigate what was going on. What I didn't like about this book was Brie's dilemma in regards to Paint and Andy. She needs to make up her mind whether or not to be in a relationship with one of them. I am starting to find it creepy that Paint and Andy don't mind that the other is flirting and trying to be with Brie. I hope this doesn't last long in this series.

 

I really enjoyed that there was a lot of action in this book. It seemed like Brie was in danger a lot during this book and I enjoyed all of the suspense.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Vex: Mythical Ink 1 by LS Anders (Review)
Vex: Mythical Ink Series Book 1 - LS Anders

First book in a new series. Different from other PNR or U/F I’ve read in the sense of how the main character comes to live among humans. The gist of it all is that Vex and his friend Lucian are banished from their world for violating some rules and they are unceremoniously sent to earth. Decades later, they decide to set up their own tattoo parlor with the help of Sevin, a shifter they have come to care for and love as a son, all while Vex is still hoping to be sent back to his own world.

I loved the trio’s relationship. They acted like a family through and through. Vex was the tall, dark, and brooding of the three; Lucian had a much more calmer personality; and Sevin while still young was sweet and flirty.


Alea is a funny, witty fairy with her own ambitions and plans. As much as Vex tries to deny the attraction that started between them pretty much from the moment they met, it really doesn’t take much for him to give in into her desire for her. Even so, their relationship blazed at the right pace, not once feeling phony or forced. Their funny and witty banter had me laughing plenty of times.


Romance aside, there was a good solid plot that kept the story moving along. That said, I felt there were a few things in the story that needed to be addressed but instead we just skipped over them. There is also the ending of the story which I thought had lots of things going on instead of just Alea and Vex as the main focus, but that’s probably more of a personal preference.

**I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.**

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-04-07 16:43
[Book Review] Cinder by Marissa Meyer - The *actually* Good Sci-Fi Revamp
Cinder - Marissa Meyer

The Lunar Chronicles have become very popular as of late, and I finally picked up Cinder, and boy was I impressed. I have seen a few novels that mix-up the classic tale, the real one, like In a Glass Grimly, which is a very good book, but a book for younger kids. I've also seem some that change the Disney-version of the classic story, and those normally do worse. But Cinder is like a Sci-Fi mixture of both, in a good way. Though, the cover of the book does not do it justice. It looks like a girly book, but it isn't, it's emotional and a bit of an action novel. The cover also makes it seem like Cinder gets skin grafting and has a happy ending, while, if you've read the book, you know it ends a different way.

 

The main character, Cinder, is well developed with good morals and realistic reactions to the things that happen to her. She is full of worry and self-doubt, but also a strong passion for the truth and to help those around her. Even if you may think she makes some bad decisions, she never wavers off her path or switches her morals around magically like many characters in other novels do. The supporting characters, like Prince Kai and Linh Adri are also developed well. You see how Kai's emotions change for Cinder, and how he reacts to his father's death, and how it impacts him. It is explained that he has to keep his composition for the public, and you understand what is going on in his personal life. You see, in detail, how he reacts to finding out the truth of Cinder as well, as heart-breaking as it is. Adri is described well, giving reason to both Cinder and her stepsisters' emotions and actions, and Adri herself helps to advance the plot even though she is the worst human in the whole first novel. 

 

The struggles Cinder endures can be interpreted to relate to your own life and that makes the book greater. Relating to the main character helps you get deeper into a book and experience it as the character does. The other characters are relatable as well, so if you don't find similarities between yourself and Linh Cinder, there are many others to find relations to. 

 

The plot is actually good, and, as far as I can tell, stays consistent throughout the rest of the novels. The development and its pacing makes sense and is understandable, and the writing is good as well. It's not a very quick read I don't think, but it's not a slow one either because you enjoy it the whole way through. 

 

The ending is amazing, and there are many emotional parts throughout that make you want to keep reading. I can assure you that you will always find yourself on the edge of your seat. 

 

I definitely recommend this book, and the rest of the chronicles.

ZOMBIE BIGFOOT written and narrated by Nick Sullivan
Zombie Bigfoot (Creature Quest Series Book 1) - Nick Sullivan

 

ZOMBIE BIGFOOT isn't trying to disguise itself as literary fiction as you can tell by the title. What it promises with that shadowy cover and its campy title is creature feature fun and it delivers that in spades!

 

Sarah, a woman whose father spent a good deal of his life trying to prove that the Sasquatch exists, is now spending her time trying to do the same. Her dad did eventually meet a member of the Bigfoot family when he was injured during one of his solo expeditions. Unfortunately, although he survived his injury with a Bigfoot's help, he returned to civilization with no real proof of it, and he became the object of scorn among his peers. Sarah has now returned to the area where her father documented his encounter with a team of her own and all of the latest technology to capture any discoveries they might find. Will they finally find the evidence that Bigfoot actually exists? You will have to read this to find out!

 

I expected this book to be more fluffy than it actually was, and that was a pleasant surprise. With a cast of characters that ranged from a television survivalist, a billionaire explorer, a Shwarzenegger-like body guard and a native American tracker/guide-there were plenty of personalities and events to keep the reader occupied.

 

Even though the beginning got off to a bit of a slow start, it felt like the author began to really hit his stride once the action got going. Somehow it seemed to come through that he was having a lot of fun and that point is where the reader started having fun too. Sprinkled with humor throughout, (like referencing those beef jerky commercials), ZOMBIE BIGFOOT doesn't take itself too seriously, while delivering more than what this reader expected from your average tale of this nature.

 

Recommended for fans of creature-features!

One Night with Hemsworth (One Night Series Book 1) - Eden Finley,Kelly Hartigan

Paige just wants one night with a hot man to escape her life.  Then she finds out how their lives are mixed up somehow and regrets it all.  If love is complicated why even try?

 

Cole has his life turning upside down.  His ex is getting married.  He wants to get along and still be able to see his son.  Will that still be the case when his one night stand answers the door?

 

This was a great start for the One Night series.  Lots of heat set up to high.  The banter makes it so much more sexy, and the characters we get introduced to are soon getting books of their own.  I liked that the story was pretty original and went at a good pace.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
