This is a voice-over video with a slideshow of photos, some might seem random. The important thing is the story and I am feeling more like doing voice-overs right now. I was given unsolicited advice on how to change my appearance by photoshopping my face!

 

Storytime of how my mom jumped to my defense and I witnessed her and a 70+-year-old man have a virtual catfight.

The Reckless Rescue (The Explorers #2) by Adrienne Kress
The Reckless Rescue - Adrienne Kress

Huzzah! Another excellent installment in The Explorers series! To say that I've been waiting eagerly for this book is an understatement. When last we left Evie and Sebastian, they had both grown so much as characters. They had struggled with their views of the world being thrown in chaos, come out the other side, and found themselves in situations that they never could have expected. If you missed my review of the first book, I'll quickly tell you that I loved it. I've been so ready for more, for so long.

This book did not disappoint! It starts with a bang as we find our characters on separate, but equally harrowing, journeys. I have to say, the amount of character growth that Adrienne Kress manages to fit into this second installment is admirable. Instead of leaving Sebastian and Evie at the level of that they achieved at the end of the last book, she pushes their limits even further. I loved watching Evie, our brave but still nervous heroine, learn to believe in her abilities. Equally so, watching Sebastian overcome his fear of being in the spotlight made me grin from ear to ear. There are so many lessons to be had in this story, but they never overpower the action and adventure on the pages. In fact, this book is beautifully balanced. I loved it for that.

As for the plot, there's a ton of forward movement in this story. We meet a new member of the Filipendulous Five, and find new clues in the mystery surrounding Evie's missing grandfather. We visit strange new lands, and dive further into the imaginative world that Kress has built. I'll admit, since I wasn't sure how many books will be in this series, I was worried that this story might suffer from middle book syndrome. It did not. It was fun, fast-paced, and full of wonder. As an adult reader, I was enhanted. I can only imagine how much fun the age group this book is aimed at will have!

Long story short, this book is wonderful. It's an excellent second installment to this series and, once again, I can't wait to see what happens next! If you haven't started adventuring with Evie and Sebastian yet, please do! There's a pig in a teeny hat waiting for you, and so much more.

Reading progress update: I've read 57%.
The Reckless Rescue - Adrienne Kress

I can't wait to settle in with this book this weekend and finish it up. It's so sweet, and just as exciting as the first in the series was! I'm a little sad I missed out on reading it before it published, because I so meant to give it all the hype. Best laid plans and all that.

Amazing Doggie Adveture
A Dog's Way Home: A Novel - W. Bruce Cameron

What an amazing adventure with this sweet girl, Bella. This is her story, told in her own words.thoughts. Her beginning is amazing enough but her next few years are incredible. Because of where she lives, Denver she must be moved to save her life. Animal control tagged her as a Pitbull, a breed not welcome there. Things don’t go as planned and she runs loose hundreds of miles, meeting all kinds of people, animals and situations.
Bella started life as a stray, raised by a stray cat under a house where she helped can for the kittens. Rescuer’s come one day and her life changes, she is owned, loved and cares for all. Problems come when a contractor building across the street tries to build on land where feral cats live, including Bella’s mother cat. Her humans are all about animal rescue and the fight begins. Things get nasty, the city, the building owners, it all seems hopeless. Bella finds herself living with some people in a different city waiting for her people, but she gets restless and takes off for home. Her focus, her desperation is amazing. I loved listening to her thoughts, and cheered her all the way. Bella is the dog with a huge heart.

Reluctant Dom meets bratty sub
Bondage Rescue (Kiss of Leather #3) - Morticia Knight
Independent review for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Book 3 in the Kiss of Leather series, and I again STRONGLY recommend you read book one, Building Bonds, and two, Safe Limits first. There are things that happen in those books that you need to know about for this one to make sense. Reluctant Dom meets bratty sub! Marshall is Kyle's best friend and had disappeared. Calling on Master Josh for help was a last ditch to get the help he needs. Help that comes in the form of the private detective Kiss of Leather's law firm recommends to find the Dom who hurt Corey. Stone hasn't been in any sort of D/s lifestyle for 5 years, since the death of a sub that he was accused of. But meeting Marshall, seeing that young man all haggard looking and far too thin, releases something in Master Stone and he steps up to teach Marshall that true submission really is a beautiful thing. If you follow you reviews (and I thank you if you do!) you'll know I'm all about the sexy time. I do love my books on the more explicit side, and I make no bones nor apologies for that. What I particularly LOVED about this one, was that Master Stone and Marshall do not get their sexy time til the last TEN MINUTES of their story! I LOVED being made to wait. Oh, don't get me wrong, Master Stone knows just how to teach Marshall about self worth and he teaches him that punishment does not mean pain, although Marshall a pain-slut. Master Stone rather enjoys teaching the bratty subs, the brattier the better and Marshall just happens to be the most brattiest, stubborn, mouthy sub he has ever come across. And Master Stone, very quickly, makes its very clear that Marshall will have to wait, and wait PATIENTLY to have sex with him. And I LOVED IT!!! The hunt for Corey's abuser continues, takes a shocking turn. I'm not telling you what though! Cos, you know, SPOILERS and all that! But I will tell you, when all this goes down, Master Stone has the exact same reaction as Master Derek does, and they go after THEIR boys. Sometimes, in a series, especially when the main couples are very similar (here, big bad Dom and younger smaller guy) they get a little same old/same old. I'm NOT finding that here though. Yes all three Doms are older, and bigger, and yes, all three subs are younger and smaller, but their STORIES are so different! The on-going story arc helps a great deal, and the fact that the guys from the previous books continue to play a HUGE part in future books, too, but it's the SUBS who have the greatest differences and I LOVE that they are all friends. Up next, are Master Josh and David. While already in a committed relationship, I can't wait to get their story. Because it's the Grand Opening of Kiss of Leather and I have a feeling it is not going to be as plain sailing as it has been and I look forward to being introduced to new characters. Some reference to drug and alcohol abuse, but not described in any detail. Loving these! 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
