Rock
rock - Anyta Sunday

4.5*

 

“New day, new stone”

I have read quite a few of Anyta Sunday’s books and they’ve have a few things in common.
They are all really good and she has a real talent for writing a story covering a long time period, she keeps me invested and interested in the lives of all the characters, not just the MCs. In this book we follow Cooper, the narrator through his parents divorce and living half of his life with this new family.
A new family that includes Jace..
“How do I stop feeling like this? How do I stop that voice in my head that lies to me and tries to confuse me all the time.”
I loved Cooper, Jace, Annie and eventually even Lila and Copper’s dad.

Cooper has an affinity, I guess I’d call it, for rocks of all kinds. He loves them, he knows them and more than that, he needs them.
The rocks lead us through this story as much as Cooper does and I found it a wonderfully unique way to tell this story.
I really don’t even want to say a lot, I’d like to encourage you to read this story, it’s full of emotions and feelings without being drama ridden.
This is a beautiful coming of age story with a depth that pulled the feelings right out of me, I can definitely recommend it and I want to add that I love all of Anya’s covers and this is another great one.

Hainted
Hainted - Jordan L. Hawk
*sigh* I've discovered an author who's going on my auto buy list!
I started with the Widdershins and then ran out and boughtThreshold and Eidolon. ( and considering I am an historical-hater that's saying a lot about those books)
Then I remembered I had this one and couldn't wait to get started.
First let me say, these are all self published and you really get a big bang (and word count) for your buck.

Jordan L. Hawk has a very vivid imagination, slightly freaky and scary, but I can appreciate that. 
The blurb just doesn't do this book justice IMHO. I wouldn't have bought it based on the blurb, it's so much more. 
Good versus evil, corruption, redemption, freaky scary un-dead, annoying and sullen teenagers, guilt, lots of guilt.
It's about putting others before yourself, doing your best and learning from your mistakes and doing the right thing and maybe just being more than you think you are.
And did I mention the scary stinky un-dead? 
Anyway..Dan is just sort of doing what he has to. Not really living his life but taking his responsibility to his siblings very seriously. He really really underestimates himself.
“Leif was so sophisticated, with his fancy car and his sword, and his talk of traveling around hunting necromancers that Dan felt like a kid or a country bumpkin beside him. Way out of Dan’s league, both personally and professionally, but somehow, it made it even more important he not screw this up. He wanted to prove himself, to show Leif he could handle a haint.”
Leif is so full of self doubt and hatred but he wants, he reallywants to do the right thing.
“It fit perfectly with his reserve, with the sense he kept a hard shell between the world and the vulnerable core of himself.
And I’m the one he wanted to let inside. It stole his breath and made his chest ache. How can I say no to that?”


This was full of action, fighting paranormal forces, interesting worlds and lore, smart and kickass woman ( Taryn and Bea) and love. 

Anyway this book held my attention, kept me on the edge of my seat and I wouldn't mind seeing what the future holds for all of them in another book.

Adam and Joe : part 2
When Adam Kissed Me - Chris Scully
 
review I really enjoyed Inseparable and was glad to finally get around to reading this sequel.
This one is from Joe's POV and it's cute to see him suffering. ( I might be a teeny tiny bit evil) 
He has loved Adam all his life. He's his beat friend, they really have been Inseparable almost their whole lives.
After a scare they finally admit their feelings for each other, which of course brings a whole new set of problems with it.
Joe is a little insecure, he thinks and thinks and over thinks all the things that could go wrong and worries too much. Finally Adam has enough.
There are some touching flashbacks to important milestones in their relationship over the years and we see them finally, finally understand where they are now.
It's cute, it's funny, it's sweet and I loved Joe and all his sniffling!
