Shell Shocked by Angela Sparrow and Naomi Brooks
Shell Shocked - Angelia Sparrow,Naomi Brooks

This was a pleasant surprise. Both characters are physically disabled, and have a lot of emotional baggage. The two MC's together work very well. I enjoyed the reality of their circumstances, both very poor and struggling make ends meet on a daily basis.

 

The story is written in Seans POV. I would of liked to have read Gabe's POV also. All in all it was a good story. I'm glad I read it.

Shocked - Amy Valenti Shocked - Amy Valenti The Romance Review


Are you that person who shines so bright everyone wants to be around you? Or do you know this person who exudes so much energy sometimes talking to them is draining? Lissa is this person. Her life force is so strong it attracts all sorts of attention, unfortunately, the wrong sort. In this paranormal romance, there are vampires out there. They aren’t your usual blood sucking leeches. Instead, they are psivores – creatures who drain human life force. Nick is one such creature. Not all of the psivores are monsters. There are some who are killers; just like some human are killers. Lissa has attracted a killer with her bright life force shining like beacon in the dark.

Nick is hunting the killer to help keep his kind under the radar and also for personal reasons. His vendetta against Taylor works out well when he uses Lissa unknowing as bait. When Lisa and Nick accidentally meet, sparks fly. Unprepared, Nick takes a quick hit off of Lissa. Shockingly, Lissa is aware and chases after Nick for an explanation.

This story by Ms. Valenti is a short and sweet erotic romance. The characters are believable and the conflict comes fast and furious. The resolution follows just as swiftly into a happily ever after. This world Ms. Valenti created is a bit different than the usual vampire mythology. It’s not new, but it’s one of the lesser explored. I found it interesting and hope she returns to this world with more world building and complex characters. I am hoping this is just a teaser of what is yet to come. Ms. Valenti’s writing style in this story is the same quality as her other books I’ve read – smooth and silky. I can always count on her for a good read. I recommend this book to paranormal romance lovers who enjoy a happily ever after.

The Jesus Scandals: WHY HE SHOCKED HIS ... The Jesus Scandals: WHY HE SHOCKED HIS CONTEMPORARIES (AND STILL SHOCKS TODAY) - David Instone-Brewer Title: The Jesus Scandals
Author: David Instone-Brewer
Pages: 160
Year: 2012
Publisher: Monarch Books
Note: A complimentary copy was provided for an honest review. Follow me on twitter @lcjohnson1988 or on my website: http://seekingwithallyurheart.blogspot.com/
What made you come and look at this review? Did you anticipate another book refuting the crucifixion or other such notorious events surrounding Jesus? Let me assure you that this book is not about that at all. If anything, this particular nonfiction work is about the curious things Jesus said and did. We may not understand how some of the topics fit under the auspices of the word scandal until you read what David is placing before you and I as food for thought.
Within the pages of this short book you will laugh, think, rethink, and maybe learn something new. The contents are divided into three parts: Scandals in Jesus’ life, Scandals among Jesus’ friends, and finally Scandals in Jesus’ teaching. We forget that Jesus’ friends, disciples, family, and others also went through various experiences because of who Jesus was and is. As you read through the short chapters, perhaps you will allow your views to be expanded as David expounds on the Scriptures. He brings the culture of then and now into an understanding of what Jesus taught and how we are to be changed by it today.
When life gets hectic or even in quiet times, we tend to forget that life isn’t always the same for others around us. When we read the Bible, it may be that we read it with a particular viewpoint that does or maybe it doesn’t coincide with what Jesus actually taught or did. There are some issues raised that have a different conclusion when history is brought into the picture. In other chapters, the Body of Christ is exhorted again to pay attention and heed the Master’s commands.
The author hopes that the book will be used to begin conversations with anyone the Lord brings across our path in life. David brings clarity to some parts of Scripture that have been unfortunately not understood completely or not at all. David never writes with a know-it-all style, but a very real down to earth, easy style that helps the reader think about what is being presented.
This is perhaps one book you might want to leave in various rooms of your home to be read with a little or a lot of time available. I found myself at times, laughing at something written, other times agreeing, and occasionally not agreeing with the conclusions. The Jesus Scandals is a great book to encourage conversations with others, but not for the sake of creating arguments. I appreciate the ideas, thoughts, and scholarly help contained in the small book and I hope you do too.
My rating is 4 stars out of 5.
