Lots of feels
Special Forces: Operation Alpha: Undeniable: An Unacceptables MC Standalone Romance (Kindle Worlds Novella) - Kristen Hope Mazzola

I rarely read MC romances with the exception of the Unacceptables series. Kristen Hope Mazzola certainly knows how to cram a boatload of feels into a quick read. Undeniable is a fast-paced, second chance romance. Ryan and Cassidy's story spans more than a decade of unresolved feelings, resentment, and finally, the kind of love that's meant to be. I have to say that I was surprised by Ryan's decision, but given the circumstances, it all made sense and came together perfectly. Another great addition to the series.

How to Get a Millennial to Clean a Toilet – Permission To Screw Up by Kristen Hadeed @KristenHadeed
Permission to Screw Up: How I Learned to Lead by Doing (Almost) Everything Wrong - Kristen Hadeed,Simon Sinek

If you want to know how to get a millennial to clean a toilet, try reading Kristen Hadeed’s Permission To Screw Up.

 

Have some laughs and learn how she succeeded, regardless of the mistakes she made along the way.

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

First off, I want to say I enjoyed Permission To Screw Up by Kristen Hadeed and had my share of laughs and chuckles while reading it and shaking my head. BUT, I would not classify this as a guide to success.  It reads more like a biography than a How To Succeed story. I feel Kristen Hadeed had a great idea and stumbled her way into success, but many others would fail if they followed her path.

 

It all started with a pair of $100 jeans, that her parents wouldn’t buy for her, and an ad on Craig’s list to clean houses. Just goes to show, where there’s a will, there’s a way.

 

I tossed most of the notes I took as I sat here trying to write this review. Like any nonfiction book, you take the information that works for you and you leave the stuff that doesn’t.

 

Millennials – 1982 to 2004. I like that Kristen was upfront about her mistakes and her feelings about millennials. It’s just like any generalization, it doesn’t apply to everyone.

 

When she blew off checking into her trademark before using it, I thought that about summed up my opinion of some of the pitfalls of millennials. They can be lazy. They are handicapped, only have one hand available, because they have their phone in the other one. They think Google has all the answers and their parents will take care of everything for them. But, again, this is only a generalization and doesn’t apply to all millennials.

 

I like that she wasn’t too proud to ask for help, and find the place to get the answers she needed, though it’s not like she didn’t try to have someone do it for her…at times.

 

I like that she talks about the Participation Generation, where you get rewards just for showing up. Helicopter parents – parents who hover, overprotective, over involved, and over indulging their children.  How can a person like that accept criticism. Kristen learned that there is “a time for pep talks and a time for reality checks.”

 

I like that at the end of each chapter is a quick summary that hits the highlights.

 

I do look at this as her story, not so much a business book. She does share some helpful hints and reminds us that even the most experienced leader can learn something new and improve their leadership style. She does share her thoughts about the value of employees being happy, even while mopping floors or cleaning toilets.

 

Would I recommend Permission To Screw Up? Yes, especially for the younger generation and the beginning entrepreneur, to show that mistakes are not failures, just learning experiences. Also, for anyone who likes to read biographies, Kristen Hadeed does have a fun and interesting story to tell.

 

I borrowed a copy of Permission To Screw Up by Kristen Hadeed from a friend.

The Fall (Havenwood Falls)
The Fall: (A Havenwood Falls High Novell... The Fall: (A Havenwood Falls High Novella) - Kristen Yard,Liz Ferry,Kristie Cook

I received this book to give an honest review.

 

This gives a whole new outlook on sirens. Serena is drawn to the water yet she doesn't know why, when she plans on leaving Havenwood Falls it seems that her aunt wants to keep her there for a reason. Though Serena doesn't understand why. With her best friend Nikki acting strange, her mother is not herself anymore something just screams there is a huge secret here but what is it exactly? Will Serena and one of her best friends ever get to leave and study aboard or is there a reason she is to stay here?

 For a novella I felt that everything flowed together nicely and nothing was left out. All it did was leave me wanting more of Havenwood Falls! What is going on in this town of supernaturals! 

I have to say I am really enjoying this series and it is hard to believe that it is all done by different authors. So it isn't just one author writing about different characters it is different authors which is just too cool. I do believe I will be reading these books because they are just good clean, well written, plot steady stories.

please ma'am, can I have more?
Evernight (Darkest London) - Kristen Callihan

I have to take a break from reading these. I prefer if there's story with romance rather than story in service of romance. I just felt somewhat unsatisfied by the end of the story and wanted more.

 

As usual, this is my opinion, your mileage may vary, everyone experiences stories differently.

 

Will Thorne's sanity is being drained away by the artificial heart in his chest. He goes to Holly Evernight, the person who put it there, who he blames for his difficulties. Now many people want her dead and she's hiding in her house with her experiments.  

 

To me it felt like the author wrote herself into a corner and then had to use a lot of handwavium and deus (or faerie)ex macina to solve the problems.  I was just left wanting more.

 

I would be stretching things a little to call it horror; it's supernatural, romantic suspense, darkest London; ghost; werewolves; monsters; terrifying women.
