Review

 

A fast paced story that did not skimp on characterization, this is the story of Lena's and Campbell's chaotic and scary night. Lena is an African-American high schooler who has a strong network of family and friends and dreams of being a high-profile stylist. I loved Lena which is why I hated that she let Black skip out on rescuing her where she was at rather than meeting him where he was at. But Black came through as a solid boyfriend at the end of the story, so I can't be too mad at him. Campbell was the new girl and the reader sees how the neighborhood/area of Atlanta has the tension among residents and the government (police) rising. Campbell was forced to move in with her dad because her mom took a job in another country and wouldn't let Campbell go with her. Her family wasn't really there to support her at all and she didn't really have a support structure before the night went sideways; she did, however, have a certain inborn privilege that helped her and Lena survive the riot and get home. 

 

Everything about this book was pitch perfect and I highly recommend it.

Have you ever wished your library had more books available to you???

Did you know, even if you don't live in a certain library's district, you can sign up for an out-of-state eCard to check out eBooks and Audiobooks with?  There are only a few libraries that offer this, especially where they'll mail it to you.  I looked into the different libraries that offer this:

 

Brooklyn Public Library NY-- $50 a year

 

*Orange County Library FL--  $125 a year (this one looks like it might work in a different Country, but I'm not sure of that)

 

*Fairfax County Library VA--  $27 a year

 

*Houston Public Library  TX--  $40 a year

 

*Free Library of Philadelphia  PA--  $50 a year

 

*note--I'm not certain if all these libraries will mail the card to you, but I think they do.

 

After looking into these libraries I decided to go with Brooklyn Public Library and I've been using my card for a couple months now and I think it's worth the $50.  Especially, for the audiobooks.  I did find that my local library has quite a lot of books too because some of these choices didn't even compare to my KDL.  Also, I still use Overdrive to access the books/audiobooks I check out. After I filled out the application they emailed my card # to me, and also mailed my actual card.  I then paid my fee of $50 and started using my card.

Book Review For: A Rake's Guide to Seduction by Caroline Linden
A Rake's Guide to Seduction (Zebra Historical Romance) - Caroline Linden

' A Rake's Guide to Seduction' by Caroline Linden is book Three in the "Reece Family' Trilogy.
This is the story of Anthony Hamilton and Celia Reece. I have read the other books in this series but feel this can be a standalone book. Also please note that this is a re-release with a new book cover, the first release was in 2008.
Celia once thought of marriage with rose colored glasses but after her marriage with her first husband those glasses are off. Now as a widow and a sister of a Duke she has some freedoms but is also much sought after.
Anthony who has always been a friend of Celia brother David always seem to live a crazy life and only had peace when he was with David's family. Now all those years later when he sees Celia again and they actually speak and get to know one another again it brings back feelings for both of them.
Loved this second chance at love story along with this getting a second chance with readers!

Book Review For: 'Bliss' by Lynsay Sands
Bliss - Lynsay Sands

'Bliss' by Lynsay Sands is the story of Hethe, Lord Holden and Lady Helen.
This book is a re-release and was first published around 2o10. I am so happy that it has been released again with its new cover. Ms. Sands books are some of my favorite books in the world. They are funny, emotional, hot and have great characters. I will never be able to say enough about her books.
This story is about Lord Holden who is a widower and Lady Helen who has never married writing to the King Henry...each write a letter to him complaining about the other. Those letters seem to arrive at the same time to the King. Which has turned out to be a pain in his side....when he talks over the problem with one of his men of courts he suggested that they marry each other. They will then either settle their arguments or kill each other he jokes. Hethe nor Helen have every actually met in person..although Hethe remebers seeing Helen with she was around 10 years old. But each only really know the other by stories and hearsay. Helen knows that she won't be able to break the engagement but thinks that if she can get Hethe to back out of the marriage then she is home free. So Helen tries several things to throw him off but Hethe goes forward with the King's orders.
I loved watching these two try to work past their schemes and then start working together.
This is a story that you will want to keep reading over and over...its not a one time read for sure!

Review For: Wicked Designs
Wicked Designs - Lauren Smith

'Wicked Designs' by Lauren Smith is book One in "The League of Rogues" series. This is the story of Godric St. Laurent, Duke of Essex and Miss Emily Parr. This was the first book I read of Ms. Smith and this turned me in to a Great Fan of her writing! It made me want more books by her immediately!
This book had everything: funny, hot love scene, strong female character outsmarting the men at most every chance, and a torched male character who in the end...only wanted love.
Emily wanted out of her former situation with a Uncle that was mean to her..then was planning to marry her off to his horrible business partner. But in the present situation she finds she has been kidnapped by Godric and his friends. Can Emily out smart them and finally get away? Will Godric come to realize how much Emily really means to him?
