Kindle Freebie - Now .99
Once Upon A Kiss: 17 Romantic Faerie Tal... Once Upon A Kiss: 17 Romantic Faerie Tales - Alethea Kontis,Yasmine Galenorn,Kate Danley,Devon Monk,Hailey Edwards,Debra Dunbar,Nikki Jefford,Sarra Cannon,Mandy M. Roth,Anthea Sharp,Jennifer Blackstream,Julia Crane ,Jenna Elizabeth Johnson ,Alexia Purdy,C. Gockel ,Phaedra Weldon,Shawntelle Madison

Hit and miss. I found "Galatea and Pygmalion" by Kate Danley to be a rather interesting take on the Greek myth. The story makes good use of gender roles and storytelling. "Princess Charming" by Yasmine Galenorn was the best tale in the collection. I love the use of letter writing and the solutions to the problems. "Soot and Stone" by Jenna Elizabeth Johnson was a really cool retelling of Cinderella. While I thought "A Small Magic" by Devon Monk was a bit longer than it had to be, it was also creative and unique.

 

Danley's, Galenorn's, and Johnson's tales would be worth the .99 price tag for me.

Bound (The Clipped Saga, Book 2)
Bound - Devon McCormack

“Love isn’t about forcing someone to be with you. It’s about being with them because you want to be, because it’s the only way you can keep on.”

 

Phew…what a roller coaster ride this one was.  I cannot wait to see how this all comes to closure and will continue to hound our dear Devon until I get my hands on a copy.

 

While the moments with Kid tore at my heart, it was once again our dear Trey that emotionally tore me up.

 

“I don’t think it’s something I can explain. I just… from the moment I first met you… from our first encounter… there was something about you. At first, it made me furious… it made me hate you, because it was so strong. But in the brief interaction we shared, I saw something in you—something that was the reason I came to defend humanity to begin with. Something mystical. Something I’ve never seen in any creature before.”

 

Gaaaahhh…so love him. 

 

And then there is Kinzer…he will continue to just break my heart, I am certain of it.

 

What horrible curse made this always happen to him? Was he so trusting that he let in these twisted, most heinous of characters?

 

But honestly it was some of the other characters that made this book even better for me…

 

Eilee…such a fascinating character and brought forth quite a different dynamic with Trey than we have seen before. I loved seeing a bit of their history while also seeing the love that Trey holds for Kid.

 

Maggie…I grew to love that crazy ass woman more with every page.  Her moments were not only disturbing but rather gut wrenching as well. 

 

Vera…still the biggest bitch in the land, there is no doubt.

 

But no one topped Hayde.  I WANT HIM!!!! HE’S MINE.  MINE.  MINE.

 

I will say the only thing that kept this from being a 5 star book for me was the number of fight scenes…my heavens…I think even Jason Bourne would have been exhausted.

 

 

While we got some emotional moments and tender *giggles* lubeless sex, I needed more of these moments.  I eagerly await the conclusion as this is one series that will remain at the top of the stack for me. 

 

**Highly Recommended**

Dashing All the Way
Dashing All the Way : A Christmas Anthology - Celeste Bradley,Eva Devon,Elizabeth Essex,Heather Snow

Dashing All the Way is a set of Four Novella Books by Four Different Authors!
I always love box set like these so that I can get a taste of other Author's writing. Along with having a Novella for that quick read need when I am waiting for an appointment or when I would like a quick read before bed. Also this set has a Christmas Theme to get you in the mood for the coming Holiday Season and also for people like me that love a Christmas Story.
Here are the books that are in this set:
“A Rake for Christmas” by Eva Devon; Evangeline is a Wallflower but she doesn't want to be anymore so she looks to Anthony for help. Anthony has his own issues and vows to never feel the upsetting Passion that seem to effect his parents.

“Up on the Rooftops” by Elizabeth Essex; Cally is a widow looking for the Season's Holiday Cheer but when a string of jewel thieves upset the town it seems anything but cheer. Toby is being accused of the crimes but he is out to clear his name and Cally goes forward with him to do so.

“The Very Debonair Lady Claire” by Heather Snow; Claire sets out to find out who killed her brother by working at the War Department. But Claire finds out that Andrew is the new Spymaster. Andrew walked away from her taking her heart at the time...but Andrew plans never letting her go now.

“A Liar Under the Mistletoe” by Celeste Bradley; Amie attends the towns balls to get access to the Lock boxes. Elliot tries to gain access to some of the Towns Lock boxes also for the Crown and Country working as a Spy. Thief and the Spy end up working together on more than taking from Lock Boxes it seems.

I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed these Christmas Theme Stories!

Faking It (Metropolis, #1) by Riley Hart and Devon McCormack Review
Faking It - Devon McCormack,Riley Hart

Gary should be living it up in his South Tower unit of Metropolis, but he's having a hard time adjusting to his newly single status. It's not easy to walk away from five years with his ex, who he discovered was cheating on him with some North Tower twink. After a night out partying, licking his wounds, he goes to bed alone. When he wakes the next morning, there's a naked guy in his bed. Not just any guy. A stud from North Tower. But hot as he is, what the hell is he doing in his room?

Travis doesn't get why Gary's freaking out. So he went home with Gary's roommate and accidentally crawled into the wrong bed. It's not the first time he's woken up in a strange place. Maybe Gary would loosen up a little if he gave it a try as well. Travis has more important things to deal with though...like his meeting with an investor who could give him the money to start his massage clinic.

They're both sure that's the last time they'll have to deal with each other until a mix-up leads Gary's ex and Travis's investor to think they're an item, which Gary and Travis use to their benefit by posing as a couple around town. Soon, they discover the chemistry between them is off the charts. Travis brings out a sexual confidence Gary didn't know he had--one Travis enjoys exploring with him. But as the two keep up their boyfriend hoax, Gary realizes Travis isn't as shallow as he thought. Gary's starting to develop feelings for him. But Travis doesn't do relationships, and Gary should know better, considering they're just faking it...

Review

I like a good fake relationship romance and this is a fun one. 

I like Gary who is still hurting from his awful ex. Travis is harder to like but I warm up to him as the book goes on.

I like the idea for the series and the circle of friends is enjoyable. I am glad when Travis and Gary get their HEA.

The Blood of Patriots: How I Took Down an Anti-Government Militia with Beer, Bounty Hunting, and Badassery - Bill Fulton,Jeanne Devon

Fulton has delivered an outstanding book on his experiences in helping to shut down a group planning to start a war against the government. Working undercover, Fulton may have saved several lives. Google "Shaeffer Cox" and you will find lots of information. But....read the book and you will be enthralled with the behind the scenes action. I won't go into the entire story, it would ruin the book. Instead, I offer a very brief synopsis, and then some parts of the book that really impressed me. An Army veteran, Fulton left the military after being injured. He opened an army surplus store in Alaska. He employed a lot of other down-on-their-luck veterans. He discovered that he was good at helping people. Fulton was approached by a very far-right group to supply weapons to kill Federal Judges and law enforcement. To reveal anymore would spoil the book. Fulton reveals several great insights throughout the book. I applaud his reasoning, here discussing one of his employees, "being depended on again made him dependable. And it didn't happen from a therapy session or a new med-it was being part of something again, being of use. And being around a group of guys who didn't judge. Guys sitting around a fire has been some pretty legit therapy since there were guys and since there were fires". Brilliant! On the reasoning of the far-right..."We were on a steady march to a police state, and it was only a matter of time before they came for everyone's guns...I'd heard this a million times. Fear is a motivator, and people...use the fear of gun confiscation, the fear of government threat, to increase membership in militia groups". Man, does this speak to a large group of people I know! "And it reminded me that in a war, both sides believe equally that they are right". "Some dentally challenged lunatic who was mad he had to live by rules and pay some taxes and not get to do whatever the (...) he wanted. Some (....) "patriot"". "I could tell there would be no turning her. She was one of those "I've made up my mind, so don't confuse me with the facts" people. There were too goddamn many of those people." Don't we all know those people, on both sides of the aisle! And finally....."the political right wing has built a mythology: in order to be a patriot and a good American, you must embrace the military-industrial complex that has become our government and the (......) of foreign policy it has created....if you don't support everything we do militarily, then you aren't a true patriot.....patriotism is more than a bumper sticker on your car, or drinking a Budweiser and waving a flag....true patriotism means serving-actually doing something for you country and the people in it because it's the right thing to do." I will probably be flamed by trolls for this review. Before you do, do not write Fulton off as a left-wing ideologue. He is probably more conservative, and has done more to serve his country, than 90 percent of the rest. And before you claim that I am a liberal, know that I served my country honorably for 28 years, and my conservatism is rock solid. "The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it"...Norman Schwarzkopf.
