Harmony Morgan is the sister of the biggest star on the planet. She’s also caught between said sister and a crazed stalker trying to get close.

 

Jaxon Quinn has been tasked with finding and neutralizing the threat surrounding the Morgan sisters, but no one warned him about the risk to his heart.

 

As danger closes in on them, will Jaxon be able to keep Harmony safe? 

Will he recognize that by saving her, he may be saving himself as well?


 
 
I have to say that I absolutely loved this story from beginning to end as it was so much fun and was infused with tons of humor and we loved that in a story.The more books I read from this author the more we fall in love with her works of fiction.
 
We really enjoyed the plot and its character's and we loved that it revolved around a group of sisters. I really loved Melody's and Jaxson's love story their entire courtship was down right hilarious and I have to say that I laughed through the entire story.
 
I always pick a favorite character but, this time around it was extremely hard but, my choice is Melody in the fact she had such an amazing sense of humor. A also found her to be sweet ,kind and caring,smart,emotional, sexual and was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside.
 
Jaxson - We found him to be sexy,sweet,kind,had a sense of humor and possessive as well as protective and really good at his job.I think we fell head over heels for him ourself from our first being introduced to him. Just yummy....
 
 
These character's had some major chemistry going on to the point they couldn't keep the hands off one another so that meant there was a lot of sexy love scenes happing throughout the entire story. Can you say Hot! Hot ! Hotter ! lol
 
 
Overall we loved the plot and the drama the few twists as well as few surprises that was filled with a great cast of character's and we loved them all.We loved the sweet romance and courtship between Melody and Jaxson that was pretty much love at first sight kind of thing but, they were really perfect for one another in every way.We also loved that the author found a way to include some of the Dogs of Fire MC members that was a nice touch as we love that series.I am really looking forward to getting caught up on this series very soon.
 
One thing we loved about the story the most is that is was easy to connect with the character's right from the very beginning and we were already pretty much loving them from the onset of the story and when that happens for us we already know we are going to love the story before us and we did just that !
 
Goes into the keeper pile to be read time and time again.
 
Recommended read to all!

The right book for today's crazy times
The Forever Letter: Writing What We Believe For Those We Love - Elana Zaiman

I've been so frustrated and feeling powerless with the last election and the state of our country.  I want to do something to bring people together and move forward to solve real problems.  I'm tired of all the blame.  

 

Elana Zaiman's book THE FOREVER LETTER offers a ray of hope with simple steps that I can take to make sure that I don't lose the people in my life who are truly important, no matter their political perspective.

James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing
James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing - G. Norman Lippert,Johnny Atomic Read this review, and many more on my blog October Tune!

I wanted so badly to like this story. But I just have to admit that I did not like it at all. I found out about this about two years ago, when I was desperate to find some nice fanfics about Harry Potter. But when I first started reading it, I couldn't really get into it. So I tried two more times to read it, and eventually the third time I finally got further than the part I got stuck at before. If you are still planning on reading James Potter and the Hall of Elder's Crossing, beware for this review might have some spoilers in it.

Even though at the beginning, I said I liked it so far, I ended up disliking it the more I read. Mainly because the author decided to throw almost everything that was canon. There were relationships in this story that did not make any sense. I mean it was well known that these characters had relationships with OTHER characters than the ones they were dating in this story (Luna and Neville did not date, they married Rolf Scamander and Hannah Abbott; Teddy Lupin (whose name was shortened to 'Ted') is not dating a girl named Petra Morganstern but definitely dating Victoire Weasley already). And the main reason I got angry was George Weasley. According to this author, he was a bachelor and currently dating Katie Bell. But he was actually married to Angelina Johnson, and they had two beautiful children together. This author ERASED that marriage, and ERASED those two children; GEORGE WEASLEY'S SON, NAMED AFTER HIS DECEASED TWIN BROTHER WAS ERASED FROM THIS STORY BECAUSE THE AUTHOR WANTED HIM TO DATE KATIE BELL. No. No no no no no.

I know it's fanfiction; but just - I don't get it. Why you would erase Fred Weasley II. I guess I could live with the other two (because at the end of this book Teddy did start 'holding Victoire's hand' though they could not be seen by her parents (I can't imagine why? I think Bill and Fleur would have happily accepted their daughter dating Teddy because they KNOW Teddy. And they KNOW he's a good guy)). But I can NEVER get over the thing he did to George.

The fact that James Potter, a first year, was apparently able to perform a Protean charm, something that is - according to someone in Order of the Phoenix - a charm that is N.E.W.T. standard. It was very unbelievable for me that James was able to do this charm, especially since he's nothing like Hermione, and Hermione was only able to do it in her fifth year. (It's the charm she used on the coins for the DA, which James used on a bunch of rubber ducks).

Ralph joined James for Christmas break, because his dad was busy or something - and the thing that made me a bit pissed off was that they celebrated it in 12 Grimmauld Place. I do not think Harry would have wanted to come back there after Deathly Hallows, I mean it has too many bad memories, Sirius never loved that house and nor did Harry. But that aside, I liked seeing the Weasley/Potter/Granger family together (apart from the whole George thing); but then there was the presents. Of course, they all got nice presents, and then Ginny and Harry had a present for Ralph as well.

Snape's copy of Advanced Potion Making. Which was in the Room of Hidden Things, which got very very burned by Crabbe's Fiendfyre in Deathly Hallows. The Room of Requirement might have repaired itself, but I do not think it could have repaired all the items that were in that specific room, especially not some stupid book. Which is also a book for sixth years. And something that Ginny would NOT have approved of giving to anyone, let alone a first year. I don't care that he's a Slytherin, Ginny Weasley would NEVER have given that book, that has some horrible spells in it, to ANYONE.

Also apparently the author thought it would be nice to let every student from every year sleep together in the same room; of course girls still separated from boys, but first years slept in the same room as seventh years (and everything in between). And this was the same for the lessons. We know from the Harry Potter books that the Gryffindors had lessons with another house - just one other house (for example, they had Herbology with the Hufflepuffs, and Potions with the Slytherins); but Lippert mashed it all together.

James had Muggle Studies (a subject that they weren't taught until third year, which was also NOT mandatory) with Teddy who was a Seventh year, Tabitha who was a fifth year Slytherin and I believe some Hufflepuffs or Ravenclaws as well. To me, it felt like the author only did this because he wanted James to spend time with Teddy. Because why not have him have classes with his two friends, Zane and Ralph, who are in the SAME YEAR?

The only thing I was really happy with, was that James was not a SUPER MEGA AWESOME QUDDITCH PLAYER in his first year. In fact, his Quidditch try-out (because apparently first years were allowed to try out all of a sudden, while after Harry got in the team this rule was not changed throughout the HP books) he was horrible. So horrible, he nearly fell off a broom and died. Until Ralph saved him, that is. (In my head, Albus isn't a great flier either, but Lily Luna turns out to have gotten their parents' awesome quidditch genes).

Yes, I had a lot of problems with this book, and I think that if I wrote them all down here, this would probably be such a long post, I could make it into a book (hmmmm, maybe I could do it).

I think my main issue with this story, is that it wasn't written by J.K. Rowling. The writing was quite good, though sometimes the author was confused on whether it was 'The Hall of Elder's Crossing' or 'The Hall of Elders' Crossing'. But yeah, I just had too many problems with this story. This story reminded me of the reason I don't read fanfiction anymore, because I find it hard to agree with headcanons/fanon.

Do I recommend James Potter and the Hall of Elders'/Elder's Crossing to anyone? No. Unless you don't care about the things that are canon. No, even then, I do not recommend this story to you. I have read much better fanfiction on fanfiction.net, and they don't have their own website, their own pages on Goodreads. Will I be reading the rest of the series? Maybe. I am not sure yet. I do have the other two available books on my e-reader, but first I need to get over this book. I might try the second one in a couple of months, or years. Or something like that.

My opinion of this book in one gif:

The Elders Are Watching
The Elders Are Watching - David Bouchard,Roy Henry Vickers

written by David Bouchard, illustrated by Roy Henry Vickers

 

I wasn't that into the rhymes (the story itself is OK), but the artwork is beautiful. If I could rate the story and art separately, the artwork would definitely get four stars. It makes me want to just take the book apart and put all the pictures up on my wall.

James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing
James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing - G. Norman Lippert,Johnny Atomic As a piece of fan fiction, this is an extremely impressive book. As a continuation of Harry Potter, I feel that it fell short of my expectations. Most of the novel followed Rowling's original descriptions of the magical world and Hogwarts. There were some instances that didn't quite fit. For example in the description of one of the classes it was said that there was a fifth year, in the same class as James... Which I find highly unlikely. But in general I enjoyed the overall story. For me the story, even though it was interesting, didn't really pick up until halfway through.
