The Eyes Of The Dragon - Stephen King
The Eyes of the Dragon - Stephen King

 

I never thought I'd see the day that I would be reading a fantasy novel from a horror master, but here we are!
It wasn't a masterpiece, but I still really enjoyed it. It was easy-to-read, had adventure and cunning things happen. There was dragons, royalty and magicians. It had so many great elements of fantasy that I look for.
The story itself was around the two princes. I liked the story, but felt it took forever to get to where it ended. Then the ending felt rushed. 
I'm hoping the next book, Fairy Tale, is better. We will see though.

Saving Ruby King: a novel by Catherine Adel West
Saving Ruby King: a novel - Catherine Adel West

The evidence the officials discover, labeled the crime a home invasion.  Ruby’s mother lied dead at the scene.  In this Chicago black community, this was just another crime committed and marked in the books.  Yet, some individuals knew exactly what had occurred behind the doors of this house throughout the years.  They knew the truth.  The abuse that had been silenced and buried for years was finally over and Alice was finally free from her husband, Lebanon.  Ruby knew it too for she lived it, day in and day out.  Alone now with her father, Ruby faces the reality that it’s just her and her abusive father.

 

Layla is Ruby’s friend and what a great friend she is.  Although Layla was told by her father Jackson, to stay-out-of-it, Layla can’t.  Jackson, a pastor of this community’s church and some members of the congregation know what Lebanon is capable of but their actions and voices are silent.  Layla steps up to help Ruby providing much more than I realized she had in her. 

 

Crossing timelines and hearing from multi-viewpoints, it took me a while to get into the flow of this book. I liked how Layla kept at Ruby, she never gave up and she questioned Ruby and didn’t preach at her constantly.  I thought having all the different characters and viewpoints was interesting and made for a more-rounded book, although keeping them separate took some work, on my part.  Set in Chicago, the book addresses many issues such as domestic violence, race, a church community, family and friendship.   I received this book from NetGalley and Park Row in exchange for an honest opinion (a few years ago).

Review: Wine Country King (California Suits #2) by: Claire Marti
Wine Country King (California Suits #2) - Claire Marti

 

 

 

 

 

Wine Country King by Claire Marti

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Open a Claire Marti novel and your heart may never view love the same. From heartbreaking to heartwarming, emotions run deep. Wine Country King is a beautiful canvas of bountiful flavors. Jack and Campbell somehow manage to find the sweet spot between overly dramatic and scorching hot. With a sprinkling of humor and a a never-ending supply of heart, Marti delivers a feast of the senses that proves hard to resist.

New Release w/Review - Frat Wars

 

 

 

FRAT WARS: KING OF THIEVES

by Saxon James

 

 

Blog Tour

Release Date: November 8, 2021

Cover Design: Story Styling Cover Designs
Genre: M/M College Romance
Trope: Rivals to lovers, forbidden love

Synopsis


We’re basically Romeo and Juliet. But dudes. And without all the dying.



Chad


Being VP of Sigma Beta Psi is wild. I get all the benefits of being in charge with hardly any of the responsibility.

Parties, pranks, and frat politics—college life has never been sweeter.

Until I meet Bailey Prince.

He has the face of a goddamn angel. I don’t know where he came from or why I’m so obsessed.

But I do know he’s a Kappa.

And our houses have a rivalry that’s written into legend.



Bailey


At Rho Kappa Tau, I’m a legacy.

It’s a lot of pressure, but I’ve always been responsible, never had that rebellious need to rock the boat, and I like it that way.

But after a party at Sigma—the jock frat—I meet Chad Doomsen, and for the first time in my life I want to step outside my square.

Our houses have always had a rivalry, but some of the guys seem to hate Chad specifically, and I don’t know why.

He’s surprisingly sweet and kind. At least to me.

I need to stay away. A relationship with Chad would be betraying the very legacy that brought me here.

But I can’t help myself. And it seems, neither can he.



Frat Wars is a romance between MCs from rival houses. It has friendly competitions, no hazing, and a swoony romance kept secret.

Frat Wars : King of ThievesFrat Wars : King of Thieves by Saxon James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Chad already thinks he is outgrowing the pranks he gets to do with his frat mates. He loves to still do them, comes up with more on the fly, but somehow is aware life is changing. Then he sees the man that he would change it all for.

Bailey is warned about the rival fraternity and its prankster, Chad. The heart wants what the heart wants. Is there anything they can do more than just sneak around and hope to not be caught?

Lots of funny in this fast paced and full of action book. There was lots of heat and lots of pranks. I laughed my way through and loved every page.
