REVIEW BY MERISSA - Picture this (Birds of a Feather #3) by Lena North
Picture this (Birds of a Feather #3) - Lena North

Picture This is the third book in the Birds of a Feather series, and we find out more about Mary. At the beginning of the story, she is with Kit, but you can see immediately that it is going nowhere. Mary yearns for that 'catch your breath when you see them' relationship that her friends all have. She knows she won't get that from Kit so she breaks it off with him. On her way home, Mary is kidnapped and held hostage. When she is rescued, feelings begin to show.

I loved how this book was written. Mary may be younger than *** (I won't say who because it doesn't say in the blurb and I don't want to ruin it!), but she certainly isn't immature. I thought how she handled situations that would have been stressful for anyone was brilliant. Mary knows what she is, what she wants, and isn't afraid of hard work to ensure it happens. She also isn't a doormat!

With the full cast of characters, you get more insight into all of them, whilst still maintaining the focus on the main ones. Absolutely brilliant addition to the series. I loved it, and have no hesitation in recommending it!

* Verified Purchase ~ July 2018. *

Fly With Me: A Celebration of Birds through Pictures, Poems, and Stories
Fly With Me: A Celebration of Birds through Pictures, Poems, and Stories - Adam Stemple,Jason Stemple,Jane Yolen and Heidi E. Y. Stemple
What a fantastic book about birds. I heard about this nonfiction book from a blog I follow, so I picked it up from the library. The illustrations inside are beautiful and most of the them are life-like. The book is filled with information that will please most bird enthusiast and I feel that this book would look beautiful on a coffee table even though it is a labeled a child’s nonfiction book.
 
The book begins with a detailed table of contents for those who are searching for specifics. The categories range from birds in stories and art, bird characteristics, bird records, saving the birds, birds in your yard, state birds (U.S.) and birdsongs, just to name a few. I didn’t read everything in this book as there is a lot to read but what I did read was educational and interesting. There is great information on each page and I wish I had the memory to remember everything that I had read. I did read the article on birdsongs and I learned a great deal on how birds sing. It was fascinating to learn how birds learn their songs and I also learned that a whole flock of birds will have the same songs but also that smaller groups within these same birds, will create their own songs based on where they live. As I looked over the illustrations, most of them had text boxes of interesting facts. I liked that the birds on the pages were labeled so I could tell exactly what type of bird I was looking at and didn’t have to go hunting for it.
 
The illustrations are life-like and most of the illustrations take up the majority of the page. Looking at the Vervain Hummingbird, she looks big as she feeds her babies on the page but as I read the text-box, I realize that her nest is half the size of a walnut shell and it is the smallest nest of all birds. By looking at this illustration, I would have never known that. There are a few illustrations that are drawings in this book. These drawings are very detailed and beautiful. I liked the information and illustrations about the birds in my own yard. I learned about seeds, bird baths, and about which houses are best for which birds. These weren’t complicated, drawn-out explanations but good directions with clear photos.
 
A fantastic book that I highly recommend. A book that has made it’s way into my shopping chart.

It's impossible for me to choose which of the two books I read today about friend-eating will have the longest or strongest effect. All libraries would be wise to stock both, just in case.

Cuddled and Carried, Dia L Michels

I loved this picture book for children of all ages. I received this for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5* rating. In it's simple way, it was uplifting and the artwork was wonderful. I liked how they linked animal families to human families. So I will be giving this to my grandchildren. It also has some start a conversation suggestions in the back. Nice touch.

Review: Picture Perfect Cowboy by Tiffany Reisz
Picture Perfect Cowboy - Tiffany Reisz

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Jason “Still” Waters is a retired champion bull rider who lives a quiet life on his horse farm in Kentucky. At least it’s a quiet life until he has to sub in for a friend and pose naked for a charity calendar. Jason’s already out of his comfort zone when he meets gorgeous photographer Simone Levine, but then she knocks him for a loop by bringing out the secret that he’s long been trying to hide. Jason’s a dominant, but his ultra conservative upbringing makes him ashamed and afraid to act on his fantasies. But with a little help from Simone, a professional submissive, Jason may just find the courage to embrace his kinky side.

Picture Perfect Cowboy is utterly divine! It’s sexy, sweet, and oh-so-much fun to read. Jason just about melted my heart. He’s not just a drop-dead sexy cowboy (though that doesn’t hurt), he’s kind, sweet, and polite enough to make you swoon. He’s also a man at war with himself. To call his upbringing strict would be an understatement and it isn’t easy for him to overcome that and accept that (1) he’s a dominant and (2) there’s absolutely nothing wrong or bad about what he enjoys. I loved watching Simone help him come into his own, to overcome what was drilled into his head and find joy with someone whose kinks complement his own.

As for Simone, she’s a delight. She’s bright, funny, generous, and open. She’s a vibrant heroine who lit up the page and I adored her from the very first. Simone loves Jason’s brand of dominance and she’s patient, honest, and open with him. She’s a wonderfully sweet and bubbly heroine who has a spine of steel. I loved watching her and Jason explore a master/slave relationship. They’re hot as hell together, but what’s more, they click on every level. They fall in love fast and hard and it’s easy to see why – these two are made for each other.

Picture Perfect Cowboy is part of Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners world, but it easily stands alone. But never fear: Søren and Nora do appear and they are a wonderful addition to this story whether you’re an old fan or are just diving into the Original Sinners. Every book I’ve read by Tiffany Reisz has been nearly impossible to put down and this book continues that streak. Her characters are always compelling and the pages of her books seem to fly by. If you love sexy cowboys, vivacious heroines, and a sweet but kinky romance, Picture Perfect Cowboy is the book for you!


FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
