In The Moment: Part Four (Moments Book 4) - Rachael Orman

In the Moment part four, picks up with Adam and Ace dealing with being kicked out of Alicia's car. It also deals with the person who broke into Alicia's house.

There's more sex in this one than in the other three combined, however they are, as always, well placed and make sense with what else is going on in the story.

I found this book to be more emotionally driven than the other three and the reader will definitely run through most of the known feelings while reading.

There's a mild cliffhanger at the end of this one, and I can pretty much guarantee no one is going to be in a happy mood by the time the book ends. Our mild cliffhanger definitely leaves the path wide open for part five, where I hope everything gets cleared up. (unless Ms. Orman has decided to add some parts to the original five lol)

I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

I give this book 5 of 5 paws.

In The Stars (In The Moments Series) - Joan Duszynski

There is so much about this book I want to say, but where do I start?

Ok, I think I'm going to do this backwards and start with the not so good. Don't worry, there's not much, and I want to get it out of the way so I can talk about all the good stuff.

1. desirable - ack! Too much desirable. That word was everywhere.
2. contractions - lack of; dialogue felt a little unnatural because no one ever used contractions. (its ok though, the movie in my mind made them use contractions)
3. Eric - I would've liked to see more interaction with him throughout.
4. unfinished business - alright, there were a few scenes where things happened and they seemed like they could be important, but then it was never mentioned again.

Ok, now, lets get to the good stuff... the great stuff... the awesome stuff.

This book had me hooked within the first three chapters. 

Deranged Tara! OMG... I would so do that! I think I may have actually tried to do that once... or twice.

I'm a music person -- meaning I like music, not that I can sing or play. Most of my memories come with songs attached to them. You know, the whole "soundtrack of my life" thing. (totally off-topic, but I once asked my husband, if we were in a movie, what song would play in the background when I walked in the room... His answer: Crazy Bitch by Buckcherry -so, umm... yeah)
Anyhow, so the musical references in this book were great for me, especially when they are ones that actually are attached to some of my memories.

If you've never heard this, you must listen to it... NOW!



Seriously, this is taking me entirely too long to write... because... well, I had to watch that. It always makes me smile.

I don't know if its a Virginia thing or not, but this book just felt comfortable to me. It felt like home and I loved it for that. 

Caroline didn't talk about her Dad, she talked about her Daddy and if you're from Virginia you say it real fast so it sounds like you're saying Diddy. 

There were the weekly family dinners and the closeness with extended family that you don't see much anymore. Its familiar to me, its the way I was raised and the way I live.

The college roommate from hell. Guess what? I had one of those too. 

I guess what I'm trying to say is that its relate-able to me on many levels.

I did find myself wondering which college they were at and what town they lived in. Duh! I have to know where the hot cops and physical therapists reside.

The story itself, who hasn't been there? Unsure and torn. Young, hormonal and confused.

And the naughty parts... Oooh... they were naughty, I specifically like the ones toward the end.

And then you have two great big pieces of man candy... even if I think one is slightly psycho-stalkerish, he's still nice to look at.

At any rate, let me try to put this into a little better perspective because I'm starting to think everything up there is a bit all over the place.

This book felt like an old friend. Like the whole story is a private joke between me and them and it doesn't matter who else reads it, the only ones who will get it are us.

That being said, I can't wait for In The Now. I'll have another private joke to share with a new "old friend".

Good start
Decisive Moments in History: The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the Manhunt for John Wilkes Booth - Charles River Editors

While this does seem to relate much of what appears in the book about Booth, there are some nice parts to this short eBook about the assassination of Lincoln.  It gives a good background, and does go into the trial at some length.  The attack on Seward is not ignored and gets a good amount of coverage.  Good use of maps.

In The moment (#1 Moments) ;; Olivia Jake
In The Moment (Moments) - Olivia Jake

In The Moment is a tale of forbidden love. It's not unlike the majority of romance books floating around; rich business man, strong willed business partner. In some places the book fell where other's were greater, and then this one was better in different places.

Samantha, who generally goes by Sam, is a strong woman who runs her own business. When powerful, and very French, Laurent is looking for another agency to help him with a launch of a next big thing in the TV world, he hires Sam to help. Soon their business relationship slowly turns into more, and Sam fears that falling for one of her clients will be a big mistake.

There are some odd things about this book. For one, they spoke French (just simple things, mind you, but enough to annoy me) very often. I didn't mind the pet names and such, but there were whole starts of conversations in French. Not so much that you would miss something important, but since I don't speak French, I found it annoying at times and skimmed a lot of dialogue. 

Typos and word errors were another big thing that annoyed me. There were just places that if you spell checked it would go right by, but in a sentence made no sense. There were a few words missing, incorrectly used, and punctuation doubled or other small things. Not enough to really halt ease of reading, but it just made the book look like it hadn't been looked over a lot. Some more time could really have made this book so much greater.

I did like the characters, for the most part. Samantha was strong when need be for the longest, and it seemed to actually fit her. The ages of them both fit well. Finally, characters who aren't twenty! The BDSM in this book really threw me off though. Honestly Laurent was constantly being called gentle, and caring, which really worked for him it seemed to me. Then all of a sudden he'd be domineering in a sudden mood swing, and his gentle but strong character was ruined, and he borderlines lots of qualities we don't want to see in a gentle character. 

Overall though, I have to say this book was pretty good. Aside from the errors throughout the book, and the strangeness of Laurent's character, everything else was really good (the little annoying things I just disliked but weren't wrong took down a star for me though). Not sure if I would pick up another of Olivia Jake's books for a while, but I might give it a shot later on.
