Home Skillet (Culinary Kings #1) - Cate Ashwood,Sandra Damien

Sometimes the only way to move forward… is to go back. 

JAMES 

I don't know what's more shocking—the sudden end to my marriage, or the fact that I'd married a woman at all. But now I'm broke and homeless, kicked out of my Upper West Side apartment while my ex-wife walks away with everything we've ever worked for. 

So what's an executive chef stripped of his dignity gonna do? 

Go back to Jersey with his tail between his legs, that's what. 

BEN 

I can’t say that spending a decade pining after my best friend was the best use of my time. While I'd pretty much become an expert at the whole unrequited love thing, I'd resigned myself to the fact that Jimmy and I were never gonna happen. But when Jimmy turned up on my doorstep in his hour of need, I jumped at the chance to offer him my bed—er, couch. I mean, what are friends for, right? 

Now that he's released from the shackles of matrimony, I can't wait to show him exactly what he's been missing out on all these years. 

What I didn't anticipate was him showing me that maybe I'd been missing out too.

Kings of the Blood Volume 1

 

<What would you do to save your one true love – the Keeper of Your Heart?

The one person in all the Universe who sees you for exactly who and what you are, and loves you all the more for it.


That special someone who with a single look can turn you inside-out and upside-down, leave you longing for more.


Would there be any obstacle too daunting? Any battle you wouldn’t fight?

 

Ancient Warriors, snatched from the jaws of death and called into eternal service by none other than Zeus himself, the Kings of the Blood are no ordinary Vampires. Stronger, faster, and nearly older than time itself, they will move Heaven and Earth and defy all they know to protect the one woman in all the world who can save their doomed soul and breathe life into their dead heart.

 

Their very existence depends on one thing and one thing only… complete and total surrender.

 

Time’s up. It’s now or never. Destiny Waits for No Man…Not Even the King.

Reading the Kings of the Blood box set which includes books one through three is a fascinating and wonderfully thrilling experience.


First, this is my first time reading any of the Kings of the Blood books and I was completely fascinated with the world and Julia Mills’ intriguing concept of vampires but not yet really vampires, which I finally decided are immortal warriors with vampire like qualities, anyway the whole working for the gods notion worked really well too and made these delightful characters unique and special. The stories are well written and each character is strong, captivating and well developed which made it easy to connect to them and to become enthralled in the stories. Each story has a wonderfully sweet and entertaining romance, blazing hot passion and sizzling chemistry which includes explicit sexual material. The fast paced plots are full of thrilling action and suspense, including some violent content.

 

Now for Viktor: Heart of a King; Viktor and his soul mate have some really explosive chemistry and the story is full of suspense which keeps readers enthralled until the very end.

 

Next we have Roman: Fury of Her King; Roman and his soul mate have a bit more action in their romance because they dance around each other a bit. The fast paced plot includes some thrilling action and suspense when Roman is betrayed which keeps readers on the edge of their seat.

 

And finally we have Achilles: Soul of Her King; this story mixes things up quite a bit by with rule breaking and secrets with the fast paced plot including thrilling danger and excitement from a very powerful enemy.

 

I can only wish that these stories were bit longer and the stories a bit more fleshed out but I really enjoyed them and the fascinating world that Julia Mills has created, so I am looking forward to Bain’s book which will hopefully be released soon.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.


I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

Review of Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell
Death of Kings - Bernard Cornwell

Another solid entry in the Saxon Stories series by Bernard Cornwell.  I thought this book was a bit slower than the earlier ones in the series as much of the fighting doesn't take place until the very end.  I also think I waited too long between reading books in this series as there were many, many names and I had a bit of trouble remembering and keeping track of them all.  However, with that said, Cornwell is an outstanding writer that keeps me turning pages and his ability to stay true to characters makes for a lot of fun.

The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive #1) (Audiobook) - DNF 17%.
The Way of Kings - Brandon Sanderson

Technically, this is competently written, and the narrators do a decent job with their parts once I sped up the playback to 1.25 times normal speed. But... 

 

I was bored a lot of the time. It got interesting for awhile. I like Kaladan and Shallan, but they don't make up for the clunky world-building or the overall awkward tone of the writing. This reads like an opus to fanfic much of the time, and it's cringe-worthy fanfic at that.

 

And the whole lighteyes/darkeyes thing just feels weird. Like the author wanted to include something about racism, but didn't want to start up a sh*tstorm by doing it badly, so decided that eye color made a good alternative. Maybe he heard about Jane Elliot's blue eyes experiment and figured it was a good stand in. It's not though.

 

If this were only 200 or 300 pages, I might feel compelled to power through to the end, but there are another 800+ pages to this thing, so my patience has run dry.
