Reading progress update: I've read 14%.
Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions - Russell Brand

My American friends probably don't know Russell Brand (apart from Char who watched his video that I shared on FB and sighed his petition! Thank you for doing that.), but he's a stand-up comedian, actor, writer and social activist. The establishment like to treat him as a joke because he actually dares to advocate for a better, fairer society, one where we're all treated as equal. Anyway, I'm getting off track here. This book is about addiction, specifically recovery from addiction. Russell thoroughly advocates the 12 steps as they saved him from a heroin addiction. He's been clean for almost 15 years. Personally, I'm addicted to just about anything a person can be! He looks at addiction from the stand point of it being symptomatic of an increasingly impersonal culture where we're viewed as consumers, as opposed to actual human beings. So even though my addictions wouldn't be considered severe or life-threatening, I plan to read it all and follow the steps.

What We All Long For
What We All Long For - Dionne Brand

What a puzzling book. I found it on a reading list recommending contemporary Canadian fiction - and while it is fairly contemporary (2005), at least compared to some of my other reads, and it is certainly Canadian, I am not sure why it received a lot of praise and recommendations. 

 

Some of the writing was beautiful and quite poetic, but I could not stand any of the main characters, who were a group of not-quite grown up early-twenty-somethings who all left their families to live in a shared house. 

 

I could understand some of their issues, I could even relate to some of them - after all I was an early-twenty-something in 2005 - but most of the time I just wanted to tell them to grow up. As for the other characters, the parents, the siblings, the friends, ... they too all seemed to be broken in some way. I'm not criticising the book for that. I get that this is part of the books message - that "we all long for something" as the title implies - but does every scene in the book have to be so dour? Is it not quite cliche enough for a Canadian literary novel to mention all sort of Toronto street names? Does it also have to be really slow-paced?

 

Don't get me wrong, there were some interesting aspects in the book, too, like what it means to grow up in a minority community or try and live on the fringes of society or what it is like to be a refugee or immigrant, but those aspects were not developed enough to make the book work for me.

Release Day Review! Wicked Times Two (Wicked Brand # 3) Tina Donahue
Wicked Times Two (Wicked Brand Book 3) - Tina Donahue

 

 

Burned by her cheating boyfriend, Jasmina is finished with the idea of forever after with any guy. That fairy tale doesn’t exist—at least not for her. From now on, protecting her heart and letting pleasure rule is her motto.

 

Lucky for her, she has the perfect men in mind. Noah and Kyle, two of the hottest cops in West Palm Beach. She hasn’t been able to get them out of her head since they handled an altercation at Wicked Brand, the tattoo parlor she manages. When they come back to get inked, sparks fly.

 

Noah’s ready to play, and Kyle’s on board. All they want is her—submission, bondage, spanking…no strings or regrets. Seductive days roll into steamy nights, igniting feelings the guys hadn’t expected and Jasmina can’t deny.

 

What began as a sensual adventure could turn into so much more…if Jasmina can risk a different kind of love.

 

Each book in the Wicked Brand series is STANDALONE:
* Wicked Takeover
* Wicked Seduction 
* Wicked Times Two

 

 

 

HOT! HOT! HOT!

 

Wonderful, solid and compelling characters that grabs readers’ attention and refuse to let go. The chemistry between Jasmina and her two sexy cops is electrifying and readers can fell it as it practically leaps off the pages and this romance isn’t all about the heat, although I promise you there is plenty of that, it’s about building a unorthodox relationship between one woman and two men.

Readers can’t help but get caught up in the suspense, the burn and the emotional turbulence that builds through the story as what starts out as something fun turns into so much more.

 

I haven’t read the first two books in the Wicked Brand series yet, but I will definitely be taking care of that. I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning and I am looking forward to reading more about Wicked Brand.

 

 

 

Wicked Times Two is the 3rd Book in the Wicked Brand series.

 

And is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   Kobo   GPlay   eBooks
