The Story of Ferdinand
The Story of Ferdinand - Munro Leaf,Robert Lawson

The story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf tells the delightful account of a young bull named Ferdinand. With the story taking place sometime in Spain, the reader might assume that Ferdinand is destined to be a matador. However, young Ferdinand is unique. While his peers run, fight, and play, "Ferdinand likes to sit under his tree just so and smell the flowers" (Leaf). The simple illustrations by Newberry award winning illustrator, Robert Lawson, might seem plain - but but do not be deceived! Hidden gems and details beg the reader to revise the text. I would love to use this book to study Spanish culture. One of the more interesting ideas I found to accompany this text is a study on cork, which can be found here: https://www.weareteachers.com/8-fun-activities-celebrate-story-ferdinand/

When your whole world becomes unhinged, only love makes sense.

Kadence Rivers
My ex-stepbrother, Blaise Savage, is everything I don’t want in a man. Crude, rude, bossy, overbearing. Not to mention that he’s Vice President of the Savage Dragons MC. I’ve got enough bossy bikers up in my business. I don’t need another one, especially now. My newfound sister, Karina, is hooked up with the enforcer for the Iron Bulls MC, so I have all the domineering bikers I can tolerate in my life.
Besides, Blaise and me, we’re bad for each other. Sure, he’s hot and my body craves him like an addict. But we tried being together once before, and our love made us lie to the people we care about. We even lied to each other until one of us ended up getting hurt. 
Blaise Savage
A couple months ago, I let Kady slip through my fingers because I didn’t tell her the truth. Not happening again. She’s smart-mouthed and totally frustrating, but she’s the only woman I’ve ever loved. Now I’ve got a second chance to make her mine, and I’m not throwing it away.
First, I have to keep her safe. She’s in trouble and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her, even align my club with the Iron Bulls MC. And if we both make it out alive, I’m not wasting any time getting Kady right back where she belongs—naked and tied to my bed. Because the one thing I’m sure of, when my world goes crazy, loving Kady is the only thing that makes any sense.
Wow ! Another great story from this author .I have to say that I am really loving this series and its MC family members.

Blaise and Kady  have a unique relationship in fact they used to be step brother and sister.Something happened in their relationship that separated them. But, now something bad has happened to Kady and Blaise has a second chance to make right whatever went wrong that drove them apart in the first place. Blaise is determined to make her his again no matter what. He wants the women he loves back in his life and bed.The guy is oozing with charm and will have no problem charming her out of her panties in no time at all. (grinning )

I always have a favorite character that I love more than the others and my pick this time around is going to be Blaise. Omg! I fell for him  head over heals myself from the very beginning  he was just so sweet and yummy.I found him to be ,sensual,sexy,possessive,sweet ,lethal,love-able,understanding,forgiving and he was dripping with sexual appeal.Just loved everything about him especially his sensitive protective side.

Blaise and Katy had some major chemistry going on that made for many hot sexual encounters.A story about reconnecting and exploring their new sexual fantasies together. Blaise is the type who is shy and  more  reserved and Blaise he wants to explore more of the down and dirty side of sex they just have to find their happy medium and Luck is just the right person to introduce them to the new delights in the bedroom. 

Its to funny that these hot as hell bikers like Dante and Blaise are going to Luck for sexual kink tips .Luck the bad boy biker dude actually teaches the classes himself.I have to say that the story had me laughing quite a bit with the sisters bantering back and forth about their sex lives with their men .The teasing between one another was just to funny.

Although this story concentrated more on the love affair between Blaise and Katy and their rediscovery of one another it was infused with danger ,betrayals,kidnapping, attempted murder humor and learning more about a missing brother making it a very interesting read that kept you turning the pages.I could not put it down.I just loved the story and its characters and the mixing it up with characters from the other MC clubs . 

A recommend read to all who love MC romances.I have loved each and every book so far that I have read in this entire series.Another win for the keep shelf.


5 stars from us

Bulls Before Breakfast: Running with the Bulls and Celebrating Fiesta de San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain - Peter N. Milligan,John Hemingway,John Hemingway

Bulls before breakfast: running with the bulls and celbrating fiesta de San Fermin in Pamplona, Spain by Peter Milligan
For my 3000 review at Amazon I will be reading:
Not sure why this subject intrigues me but I recall black and white film from my grandparents at bull fights in Cuba back in the day...
Hemingway had first wrote of this and that's probably why I want to learn more of it. This book is about a man who's run with the bulls many times and why he continues to do it.
Last day of the running and the big fiesta is the 14th of July, run is 8 times during July  and my birthday is 14th. I always thought they ran for me when I was younger, in tribute to me. Rockets blare at 8am to signal the start and the day ends in fireworks!
Love hearing the details of why they ran and the fear and adrenaline and family experience and so much more. Traditions of brothers who don't know one another.
To understand if you have to get down on the streets and experience it for yourself.
Step by step instructions all about the roadways and what to expect as far as curves, places to hide, inclines, etc.
They make plans a year in advance...crazy to hear of latest technology and taking things for granted...count the bulls!
Wow no cameras at all!  So much more to do in the area. the inside tips are enclosed. Love this book for all I learned.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Books, Bulls, And Bacchanals (Angel Martinez)
Books, Bulls, And Bacchanals - Angel Martinez

I have enjoyed Martinez's tale of Greek gods in this Brandywine Investigations series, and was excited when I found out that Dionysus finally got his own story. Dio was -- well, wild. I mean, he was the god of wine and orgies!! So I was curious about the one who would be able to capture Dio's heart.

And I must applaud Martinez once again since she seems able to bring out interesting and unique relationship ... because guess who Leander is? He's a minotaur ... yep, THE minotaur. The bull that is part of the Greek myth of Theseus and the Labyrinth *gleeful*. But there was nothing assertive about Leander at all. In fact, he was a reticent being -- he is pretty much living in the quiet peaceful Eternal Library, with his books and his red panda assistants (lovingly named as characters from Austen's books).

Yes, people ... the Wild God of Orgies and Reticent Virgin Bull... Who knew? They actually worked :)

I did have trouble to get immersed into the story in the beginning. Probably because Dio's thoughts felt too scattered for me to follow. It improved when Leander finally made his appearance though. Leander was such a darling :). It just made sense and I thought the relationship was adorable.

There was a 'slight' mystery because one of the secondary characters was murdered at the library, but it wasn't the spotlight of this story. I didn't mind though, maybe because it was what happened in book #1 and #3 anyway, despite the series name (which include the word "Investigations").

All in all, I was happy with this one. Now I wonder if Martinez will return to this world. I will be happy reading about other Greek gods...

Meh. Had potential but instead rode the meh coast, on a meh boogie board.
Bulls and Blood (The Blood & Thorn Ranch) - T.A. Chase
Two Hearts--I read the blurb, saw cowboys and vampires. I got really happy.

Add in boss/employee, forbidden human/vampire aspect and pining for years? Oh yeah, I was a happy camper. Not my first T.A.Chase so I knew to expect some goodness.

Then I read this. And it did deliver the modern cowboys, vampires and boss/employee sexy times. But it didn't deliver in a lot of departments too.

The Thorn brothers are a group of male vampires that all share the same vampire creator and call consider themselves brothers. The family moved from the old World to America, starting a ranch and making their own rules. Vampires came out of hiding about twenty years ago and are the most powerful supernatural beings in the world. Other creatures exist as well but the vampires reign supreme. (And the author does nothing short of shove the future pairings down our throats)

Mino, a human cowboy/ cattle hand is in lust with the drabbest vampire of the brothers, Wesley Thorn. Wesley is the youngest of the vampire brothers and the enforcer. He's very black-and-white, likes rules and everyone following them. He knows he's better than humans, shifters and any other supernatural beings out there. He's an apex predator, yadda yadda yadda. He's rude and pompous. And Mino knows it and still wants to get in his pants.

Truthfully I don't see the attraction. And yet I kept reading. Though this story was totally all telling and info dumping and a lot of repetition of how wonder vampires are, etc...i still read. Maybe it was the paranormal soap opera-ness, I couldn't stop reading it. The sex really wasn't anything to write home about, the brothers were sort of interesting, Mino seemed like he was sane...and there was smaller guy topping.

But it still can't make up for the rushed writing, the telling and the glossing over the interesting bits (vampires mating). There was no sexual tension. Wesley was cold and then in the next paragraph, he wants to have sex with someone he deems lesser than him. We get no inkling on how he feels about Mino, next thing once the secondary plot gets solved (more off page than not) the main characters are moving in and Wesley 'cold-as-a-fish' Thorn is in love?

Then story ends at 90%

The abrupt ending ruined this story. It was rushed and came way out of left field. Even with all the strikes, I was prepared to read more of the Thorn brothers. But with that weaker finish...I'm not.

I pretty much can tell which brother will end up with which secondary character, no need to read the rest.
