Sincere
Crushed (Foster Puppies) (Volume 1) - A.R. Steele

Tynan finds a lost puppy and recruits Harley to help.  Turns out the puppy is going to be a mom.  Harley and Tynan end up fostering the mom and the pups until they can be given up for adoption.

 

Harley can hardly believe his luck!  Meeting a guy who is not only good looking, but loves animals too.  Can they have enough in common to make a love connection?

 

This is such a sweet story.  The puppies are a big part of it and it makes for some genuinely cute moments.  The characters seem to need one another and the book was a joy to read.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Ms. Marvel Vol. 3: Crushed
Ms. Marvel Vol. 3: Crushed - G. Willow Wilson,Adrian Alphona Oh man. This one was really good and I may have screeched when I got to the end because I now want to read volume 4. This takes up after the adventures of volume 3. We start off with Loki being sent to Earth to investigate that the school where Kamala attends is actually safe from The Inventor. Loki was pretty hilarious in this, and hey somehow Loki became good again? Yeah I don't know, I just rolled with it. Loki comes across Bruno discussing asking Kamala to the Valentine's Day dance (dude, just don't) and is told by everyone with eyes, ears, and common sense, why this is a bad idea.

So the whole storyline really is about Bruno realizing that friendship is an actually awesome thing, and being friend zoned is a terrible term. Kamala falls in love with someone who she has a lot in common with and this guy is not all that he seems.

Kamala really grows up in this one I think. I did laugh though at all of the moments with her brother trying to be a third wheel to Kamala out and about with a guy though (seriously, welcome to my teenage years).

We get more insight into Kamala's family and also her religion as well. I really did love Kamala's brother for telling Bruno that a relationship between him and Kamala is impossible. But I also loved Bruno's come-back to why his family is not that much different than Kamala's.

It all begins here!
Crushed (Seven Forbidden Arts) - Charmaine Pauls
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books, I received this book direct from the author in exchange for my review.
This is the prequel to Pyromancist, an introduction if you will, to the group that Josselin works for. On the run after her family was slaughtered, Lily is rescued by Jacob. But its not so much as a rescue, as a means to an end, the end being Lily's father's capture. Chased across Africa and Europe, together they find themselves in danger at every turn. But not every danger is clear, and Lily learns the hard way what Jacob is trying to tell her: not to trust anyone!
 
I've filed this on the paranormal shelf, but there isnt very much paranormal content, it talks about the seven forbidden arts, fire, water, air, earth, human, animal and spirit, and we are introduced to Josselin and his team, but thats all. I put it there to carry on for Pyromancist, and next up, Aeromancist. I have that to read too.
 
I loved this as much as Pyromancist, even with the paranormal element. Why?? no idea, but I did. You get a little introduction inot Lucien, the pyromancist in that book, and to Lily's rather lovely father and step brother. They don't appear in in the main book, though, just Lucien.
 
Deadlier, sexier, and more action, makes for a book that I read in one fell swoop, and could not put it down. I thank Ms Pauls for giving me this book to read. It can be read as a standalone, or after the first main book, it won't alter your reading enjoyment.
 
5 stars **same worded review appears on Goodreads, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk**

Personal review, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
Ivan Cray is back for his revenge. He never thought that revenge would cause his heart to heal. Alice Jones broke that heart when she choose her family over him.
 
This is book 6 in the series. I would recommend you do read these in order, there is much moving from book to book, and its carried on here.
 
I really enjoyed this one. But not quite as much as the rest. Not really sure why though! I still give it 5 stars.
 
Alice and Ivan have history; Ivan took Alice's heart and virginity 9 years ago, and left right after. Alice never really forgave him for that. But Ivan never forgave Alice for choosing her family over him.
 
There is a lot of misunderstanding and crossed wires between these two. It makes for frustrating reading at points, since its clear to everyone but them, that they love each other!
 
It's super hot and sexy, scary in places with Ivan's gift of seeing ghosts. Some characters are laid to rest, some are still on the run! I swear, Godfrey HAS to get his comeuppance soon! The man has more lives than a blooming cat!!
 
We meet a character briefly who will appear in a later book, and I am really looking forward to that one!
 
Like I said,still a 5 star read, just not quite as much a one as the others.
 
5 stars.
