SO HOT!
Guilty Pleasure - Lora Leigh

Agent Marty Mathews has had it bad for Khalid El Hamid--Mustafa since she was 15 and didn’t know what that even meant. For the past 2 years she’s been tailing Khalid as an FBI agent. Now that she’s off the case, she can finally work out her plan to seduce him!

Anyone whose read any of Lora Leigh’s first Bound Hearts books has already met Khalid and has anxiously wanted to read his book. I was very happy that it didn’t disappoint. Although I typically don’t like reading books (or series as the case is here) where one of the main characters was in sexual situations with someone other than their HEA, the scorching series is written in such a way that I have no problem with it. The author has a way of writing strong females with good moral who are a perfect match to the strong males they fall for. I loved reading about Khalid and Marty. I’m glad that the series was re-released giving me a chance to read this. I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Brilliantly written
Hell Breaks Loose: A Devil's Rock Novel - Sophie Jordan This is so well written. Let me tell you! Brilliant. I was sure I wasn't going to fall for the Stockholm Syndrome love affair.. BUT I so so did. I adore Reid. Completely fell for him. Really like Grace as well. Love their chemistry and totally got their attraction and all that. The thing that however didn't work for me: the last bit of the story line. There is this huge build up. Then the reckoning is supposedly happening.. and it was just meh. Somehow it just fizzled out. *warning! There might be some minor spoilers after this* I mean what was she thinking walking through the front door knowing what Sullivan had planned? But even worse the reaction of her father, and well actually I would have been fine with that sorta. Except that then they just decided to go another way - the end. Also the sudden big love declarations felt too rushed. It was too much. The end felt too convenient and rushed. Still bloody brilliantly written. I can't wait for the next novel!!

Creepy TV: True Nightmares
 

 

Need some creepy tv to brighten up your October?  Have I got the show for you.
 
True Nightmares is one of my favorite new guilty pleasures. It reminds me very much of Tales from the Crypt with its dark twists and do you want to know the creepiest (and best) part about this show?  It’s all true! 
 
 
Hosted by a cheeky man named Tom Robbins who dons a black umbrella and ends every episode with “May all your nightmares come true!” this show is pretty much catnip for me. I did a little google investigating and learned that the host has spent his life surrounded by the strange. He’s known for sword swallowing, eating light bulbs and performing magic in various side-show acts. When he says he’s been drawn to the strange, he’s not kidding! He is a terrific host. His facial expressions as he introduces and sums up each episode show his genuine glee with the material. He is fantastic.

“The stories you’re about to see actually happened — they’re nightmares that have already come true.”


Each episode features three real life very weird stories brought to life by actors, usually involving some sort of delicious murder plot. Some of the tales are current, others go way back in time but all of them have a disturbing twist and usually a picture of the real people at the end (call me nosy but I love seeing those). The acting ranges from decent to downright cheesy and over-the-top but I think that adds to the charm of the show. It’s never too serious about its bizarre subject matter and I always walk away from it surprised and highly entertained. 
 
If you’ve seen it I’d love to know what you think!
 
Season 2 is currently airing on the Investigation Discovery channel and season 1 is available on DVD.  You can also check out most (if not all) of the episodes online and I highly recommend you do so by clicking HERE.
 
Do you have any creepy tv favorites to recommend?

Fabulous, funny and filled with excitement
Night of the Living Demon Slayer - Angie Fox

Angie Fox just keeps the fun going! Amazon’s ‘Freebie” program turned up a jewel when I found the first book of this series, The Accidental Demon Slayer. As I said in that review, “I am thrilled to say I wound up with a ruby. Hey, I like rubies better than diamonds, so sue me!”

 

“Come on, who wouldn’t be thrilled to have a kick-butt, 70-something, pink-Harley-riding grandma show up on your doorstep on your 30th birthday to help you kick demon backside? Well, if you happen to be the ‘turning-thirty-preschool-teacher” hiding in the bathroom from said grandma, things can get a bit confusing, but come on. A Pink Harley? Got to love it!”

 

“And the action only starts there. Strap your hyperactive Jack Russell into a ferret bag across your chest, hop on the back of Grandma’s Hog, (even if you do get carsick in anything faster than a tricycle) and take off for the Red Skull Hog Ridin’ Grannies biker bar, with demons in pursuit. What happens after had me grinning like a crazed biker granny myself, as Lizzie and Grandma kick fanny and take names across the American South – and a good portion of Hell.”

 

Night of the Living Demon Slayer” is Book Seven of the Demon Slayer Series, and I have to say, this one is just as good as the first one. I haven’t had an opportunity to read the ‘in-between’ books yet, but I was still able to read this one and greatly enjoy it without reading them. But I do have the rest of them on my list and fully intend to read them. They are just too much fun not to.

 

This time, Lizzie and the hog ridin’ grannies, along with Pirate the talking Jack Russell and Flappy the white dragon (yep, Lizzie has all the cool pets!) are headed to New Orleans to help out Carpenter, a Necromancer Lizzie owes a favour, take out a zombie white alligator. Yep. It is bound to be exciting – and it doesn’t disappoint. Action and adventure, zombies and voodoo, oh yes – this is some great fun!

 

Let yourself relax, open your mind to the fun, and enjoy this series. It isn’t serious, so don’t expect it to be. Just be prepared to appreciate it for what it is – a rip-roaring good time!

 

Overall, Angie goes in my ‘must read when I am reading just for myself’ pile. She made me laugh, and her story was a pure, guilty pleasure. What more can I ask?

 

Recommended.

 

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a realistic review. All thoughts are my own. Thank you, Season Publishing and Angie Fox!!
