Light, sexy Fantasy for the beach.
Trickery (Curse of the Gods) (Volume 1) - Jane Washington,Jaymin Eve

****4 AMAZING, Yet unsafe STARS****
Coming from my monogamist, perverted little heart it's almost like a gazillion stars. I'm not joking, when a book is tagged as romance I get picky and I need possessive heroes and commited heroines. I rarely give 5 stars to unsafe books (ACOMAF was a glorious exception) unless there's something outside the romance and that something has to be really amazing to impress me.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, Trickery is an amazing book. I'm impressed!

I'll say this book is the perfect choice if you want a light fantasy book to take with you to the beach. You won't find complicated world-building. You won't find poetic prose and heavy social issues. You'll find a story of friendship, bravery and the eternal mystery of why opposites attract. And of course you'll find 5 hot guys completely devoted to their heroine.

I like the world building! I know that some fantasy readers prefer overdescriptive, detailed worldbuiding and everything explained in book 1 of the series, but I don't. I don't want to know the whole history and politics of the world in the first books of the series. I prefer the kind of worldbuilding that has the potential to grow throughout the series. Think Harry Potter, and Hunger games. Book 1 didn't explain the history and politics of the world but we the impatient readers eventually discovered what was going on as the series progressed. This one has potential to become really epic.

Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington provide us readers with enough information of their magic world:Minatsol, to understand Willa's position and why the Abcurse brothers infatuation with her are a big deal.

Minatsol is a world where not everyone is equal. Willa, a walking disaster, cheats during her "exams" and therefore she gets a high ranking that gives her the "privilege" of travelling with her sister to a very exclusive academy. Not to study but to serve the demigods who attend the school there.

I disagree with anyone who calls Willa stupid. She is quite smart actually. There are several types of inteligence. Willa has interpersonal and intrapersonal, skills. She's also good at language, I mean, all her witty comebacks. Poor Willa just doesn't have the kind of intelligence that allows normal people to put one foot in front of the other without tripping. That's the kinesthesic intelligence, but other than that she's quite smart and I like her. I guess some people will find her sense of humor juvenile, but I think that's what really made me enjoy this book. 

I had the most amazing pic to fancast the other abcurse brothers but for some reason it's not working. It must be that Willa's pull for chaos is rubbing on me.

Anyway, I think this book is different. I don't think it's romantic, and I'm uncapable to root for Willa with all the brothers. I prefer possessive, strong heroes and I think Rome is the one who really seemed more affected by the fact that Willa has a thing for ALL THE BROTHERS. I hope he eventually finds someone else or that Willa chooses him, but that doesn't seem the point of the series. The whole point seems to make the reader laugh so I'll read the next of the series and hopefully I'll enjoy the sequels as much as I enjoyed this one even if there's not a single couple to root for ... or maybe there are too many of them.. I might even preorder Seduction, book 3 of this series because my friends are all hyped about it. I think it's the most anticipated November release in the YOung adult section.

I'm not writing a parental guidance alert...yet because this book was clean, but I don't know whether the authors will try to be like Tahere Mafi and Sarah J. Maas and change genres, from clean YA to raunchy no-fade-to-black-during-sex-scenes-New-Adult later in the series. 

Do you need a laugh?A mindless YA? Juvenile jokes and hot guys?Read Trickery.

Pre-reading thoughts
I wasn't going to read this because TRIANGLES AND POLYGONS AREN'T MY THING. But I need a light young adult fantasy and My dear friend Karen says that this Fantasy book is the opposite of a Sarah J. Maas books and that ingrigued me. How is that even possible?

I also pick a popular overly anticipated series once in a while to read and Seduction book 3 of this series is coming in November: I don't think I'm exaggerating that it has to be the MOST ANTICIPATED YOUNG ADULT FANTASY NOVEMBER REALEASE, judging by the level of interest amogn my friens. Before Seduction appears all over my newsfeed with me not having an idea of what's going on I decided to step out of my confort zone of safe romances and go for something that everyone says is quite funny and different. I honestly hate reading on going, unfinished series because I hate cliffhangers. But usually Young adult Kindle unlimited authors finish their series quickly so I'm here ready. I'm not expecting romance. How could it be with so many love interest? 

Wish me luck. I really want to love this one.

Note: Unsafe means that there are other partners activities meaning kissing, watching naked and I usually hate that so. I wonder how I'd feel about this one.

Meet-cute by C.C. Dado Review
Meet-cute - C.C. Dado

Elliot Beck may not have been blessed with mad art skills, a crooner's voice, or a godlike physique, but he makes up for it with an abundance of quick-witted sarcasm, massive insecurities, and a love of bad boys. 

After his best friend Trevor finds him naked and tied to his bed—abandoned by his latest troublemaker—Trevor convinces him to take a chance on a nice guy. When he has an awkward encounter in the men's restroom with a fitness instructor named Chase, he never suspects the Adonis might be his perfect bad boy.

 

Review

 

This is cute and fun and fast. I do with characters carrying more weight than your average romantic lead didn't suffer from self esteem issues (or at least not more than any other character in the book).

This is very funny in its wit and situations but not well developed. I had a good time anyway.

The Distance (Firsts and Forever, #11) by Alexa Land 4 Star Review!
The Distance (Firsts & Forever) (Volume 11) - Alexa Land

What if everything you think you know about someone is completely wrong?

Twenty-four-year-old Jessie thinks he has fellow street racer Kai all figured out. The tall, dark-haired Hawaiian might be gorgeous, but he’s also arrogant, angry, and a total menace when he gets behind the wheel. So why does an argument with Kai lead to the hottest sex of Jessie’s life?

As sex starts to give way to so much more, Jessie wants to trust Kai. But after a betrayal in his past cut Jessie to the core, that doesn’t come easily. Even if Kai proves to be far more than the gruff exterior he shows the world, Jessie’s sure he’ll screw up any chance at a relationship and get hurt all over again. He just needs to keep his distance, which would be a lot easier if the attraction between them wasn’t off the charts.

The Distance is the eleventh book in Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts & Forever Series, but each book is written to stand alone, so jump in anywhere. 

 

Review

Yea! Jessie finds love. 

This is a really good love story. Jessie is a wonderful light, talented man and yet despite how very good he is, we get to see him taking a journey to being his even better self. 

Kai is grumpy. His family is great and watching fall in love with Jessie is a pleasure. 

This book is really a pleasure with a wonderful cast and new characters and the crazy at just the right happy amounts. 

Good stuff!

New Release Review! Hot and Badgered (Honey Bear Chronicles #1) Shelly Laurenston!
Hot and Badgered - Shelly Laurenston

 

 

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.
 
Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .

 

 

The first book in the Honey Badger Chronicles which takes place in the Pride Stories world will keep you in stitches with a fun filled and action packed romantic adventure.

 

As usual Shelly Laurenston provides such a fun read that I just can put the book down until I have wrung every last chuckle from every page.  The zany and wonderful characters of her shifter worlds are always strong, compelling and full of snark while they tie readers in knots with laughter, they always make it easy for the readers relate to and become captivated by each and every one. So, needless to say Charlie and Berg stole the show in Hot and Badgered with their sizzling but prickly chemistry as they entertained readers with their quick witted dialogue and funtabulous but dangerous attitudes but don’t think that’s all these characters are about because they also some deep seated emotional issues that while they add to the fun also add depth to their personalities and captivate readers.

 

The fast paced and super charged plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of thills and intrigue and there is no predicting what will happen next. There are several action filled events that gets the adrenaline pumping but also provide some chuckles and since there is lots of hated family members and plenty of enemies, there is never a dull moment to be found in this electrifying story.

 

I have been waiting very impatiently for this story to be released as I love Shelly Laurenston’s books (p.s. I also love her alter ego – G.A. Aiken’s stories as well) and let me tell you that I was quite pleased with Hot and Badgered, she introduces new characters to her fascinating world and maintains her diabolical use of snark and fun to keep readers thoroughly entertained and I can’t wait to read the next one.

 

 

Hot and Badgered is the 1st book in the Honey Badger Chronicles which is a spinoff of the Pride Stories.

 

Hot and Badgered is available in print or ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   Hudson   BaM   IndieBound   GPlay   Kobo   eBooks   iBooks

 

Shelly Laurenston can be found at:

Website   Goodreads   GAAiken   BookBub   Facebook

Do You Like My Wiener?: a non-expert's no-nonsense guide to dating by Brenda Rothert

 

Book Blurb:

 

With laugh-out-loud mishaps and heartfelt advice, bestselling romance author Brenda Rothert shows readers that while dating these days can be the worst, great men aren’t just fictional.

 

Ladies, we’ve all been there…a good first date is wrapping up and we’re sure a second date is likely after a great goodnight kiss beside our car. He’s tall, funny and charming. FINALLY a good one. He asks to get in the car, which seems natural since it’s cold outside. And then, once inside, another kiss, and he exposes himself and asks us if we like his wiener.

 

Wait, what? You haven’t been there?

 

Guess that one only happened to me. What about the guy who spends most of a first date complaining bitterly about his ex-wife? The one with the guy who cops to his criminal record over dessert?

 

Dating these days can leave a girl frustrated and disgusted. But fear not, I’m here to help. I’m a veteran dater, having spent a fair amount of time in the cheap-cologne scented trenches. And while I am admittedly not an expert, I can help you avoid my mistakes.

 

I’ll show you how to prepare yourself for dating, how to spot the red flags and how to laugh off the misadventures you will inevitably have. And hopefully, how to avoid an awkward wiener encounter of your own.
