Release Day Review! Christina's Tapestry (Tapestries #1) N.J. Walters!
Christina's Tapestry - N.J. Walters

 

 

Captivated by a lush tapestry she sees in a shop window, Christina Beaumont impulsively buys it, never imagining how that one action will change her life. The magical tapestry not only transports her to a world that resembles medieval Earth, but also into the arms of two massive warriors who both want to claim her.

 

Jarek and Marc, brothers of the House of Garen, are elated to discover the tapestry has delivered Christina to them, but ancient tradition dictates that they must compete for the right to be her husband. Both separately and together, the two will indulge Christina in every sensual way possible, taking her to passionate heights beyond even her most intense fantasies.

 

As the time for Christina to choose between the two men draws near, she is confronted with another option: she can return to her own modern world. Fearing their loss, Jarek and Marc will join forces to convince Christina to stay with them, even as they fight a rival family for the right to keep her as their very own . . . This is a revised edition of a previous published book.

 


Oooh, la, la, just wait until you hear what I have to tell you... I just had a sensational sensually stimulating visit to the past where I met the strong and captivating Jarek, Marc and Christina. These delighted me with their magical romance full of temptation and some really hot and sexy love scenes including menage scenes. The relationship itself was a bit slow in catching up to the sizzling chemistry that burned between these characters but hey who can blame Christina for being a bit slow on the uptake when she just got yanked from her time and place and dropped right in the laps of two super sexy warriors, who by their very natures would turn any red-blooded woman's brain to mush. I could certainly connect with her and the two warriors as they explained the prophecy concerning the tapestry and why there romance had to move at such a fast pace.

 

Which kept things hot and steamy throughout and had me glued to the magical pages and N.J. Walters brought the story to such vivid life that I could practically smell the fresh air and I pictures each and every scene as they happened and let me tell you, that I was quite flushed by the time Christina made her decision about whether to stay or to go home. I will definitely be awaiting the release of the next Tapestry series romance, meanwhile I think I will be on the lookout for my very own 'tapestry'.

Wild Angel
Wild Angel: A Rock'n Tapestries Novel - Shari Copell

I was really looking forward to Wild Angel, the follow-up to Rock’n Tapestries, by Shari Copell because I liked the first book (although the second half of the book Chelsea and Tate’s relationship seemed forced and convenient to me, and also made me bawl for a douche-y rockstar who may or may not deserve a girls tears), and because it was about Chelsea and Asher’s daughter all grown up, taking Pittsburgh by storm with her (daddy’s — unbeknownst to her) tabacco sunburst guitar. I always wanted to read a book that’s about the characters children's own book. So this answered my prayers in that respect. Wild Angel was the first one that did, so I was even more excited to get into it.

 

Right from the first chapter, I was excited. Nicks (heroine/the daughter) kicks off with a fiery demeanor while rocking out on stage, just like her biological daddy, the late Asher Pratt. Not only that, but while mouthing of expletives about sex and curse words to shame a sailor, Stone Jensen is there watching and not scared one bit by whatever she throws his way. See, they’ve been on bad terms for a year by then because he said some not-so-nice things about her and her guitar-playing skills. Right off the bat, you can feel the tension when they challenge each other. When I read that, I was locked and loaded for more challenges and tension to come. Only to be disappointed from that point on. Instead, Stone went up to her and talk to her for the first time ever to apologize for saying all those mean things about her. Oh, she stood her ground and basically told him off alright.

 

She may have brushed him off at first, but Stone turned soft from that point on. Like I said, I expected more of a fight from them, but I didn’t see the same challenge he had when he saw her play that stage that day. He makes nice to get her to forgive him and be on good terms, if not friends. Long story short, they both form a friendship and bond over guitars and the mystery of who willed them to her. This leads to a string of theories, snooping, digging, questions, a near-panic attack or two from Nicks mom, and the truth. All the while, the school principal seems to have it out for Nicks and strange occurrences and dreams have been happening around the household... Well, you can see that a lot stuff goes down.

 

See, this book is over 500 pages. Usually I don’t complain even if it is a NA contemporary, but this draaaagged at parts. If you cut down all the unnecessary crap, it would be a good 300/400 pages and wouldn’t drag so much. If you ignore that part, this is a good book. All the events, the building, mystery, secrets, kidnappings, a sadistic school principal, sketchy characters, attempted murders, paranormal elements, and plot twists.

 

The ending is what made me want to throw my kindle out the window at 7am and go hunt down Shari with a pitch fork and torch in hand. Or near the end, I should say. There’s like 2-9% of the book left that had me bawling and screaming how is this fair? Why would you do this? How dare you! This was not the happy ending you promised us, Shari! I mean, I know not every story had a happy ending, but I expect an HEA if the book description promises one, especially if it’s from the author themselves. I was so nervous and hopeless by 98%. But then Asher, from beyond the grave, somehow gave them a miracle that gave us the HEA. I took the much need breath that was steeled from from me.

 

Overall, even though I wanted more tension/challenges between Nicks and Stone and some parts dragged and the ending literally had me on edge, I enjoyed this book. There was rock n roll, steamy times, mystery, and family values.

Barka Bride by NJ Walters Review
Bakra Bride (Tapestries, Book Two) - N. J. Walters

This is fairly meh erotica. Not bad but not more than that in terms of a story and world building as well as characters you want happiness to find.

Where the Trail Ends (American Tapestries series) (American Tapestry)
En Torno Al Escultor Alejo De Vahia: 149... En Torno Al Escultor Alejo De Vahia: 1490 1510 (Spanish Edition) - Clementina-Julia Ara Gil I thought the book was wonderful. The things Samantha goes through make you realize how special life can be. Reading their journey along the trail was described so well you could picture yourself with them along the way. Loved it.

The Tapestries: A Novel
The Tapestries: A Novel - Kien Nguyen One star, yikes, I should have known better than to read this book. But I wanted to read something set in Vietnam and written by an actual Vietnamese person about Vietnamese characters--not by and about Americans who fought in the Vietnam War--and this fit the bill. Unfortunately that was the only bill it fit. (What does that mean, anyway, fitting a bill? What kind of bill are we talking? Anyway.)

This is a wannabe-epic tale, set in early-20th-century Vietnam, of a boy whose family is killed, and who seeks revenge but falls in love with the killer’s granddaughter. It starts interestingly enough, with the boy’s first wife; he’s 7 and she’s 24, and his family arranges the “marriage” for the free labor. Then it gets bogged down in cliché, and in long boring chapters from the perspectives of minor characters. The characters’ emotions are stereotypical, their interactions clunky and simplistic, and much of the dialogue consists of their spouting grandiose pronouncements at one another. The villain would surely be twirling his mustache, if he had one. And everyone constantly makes idiotic decisions, without realizing their idiocy even in retrospect. It would be funny--sometimes it almost is--if it weren’t so slow and didn’t take itself so seriously. Instead it's just boring.

The cultural and historical detail is usually the one redeeming quality of even bad world fiction, but I’m not inclined to be generous here; the descriptions are rather tired, as is the language (although mostly competent, the writing is never fresh or arresting), and I doubt the author’s credibility. For instance, there’s a woman with bound feet, and early in the book we see her in a room full of people resting her bare feet on an ottoman. Whoa now! Bound feet looked and smelled terrible; a woman wouldn’t display them unshod. Then later in the book, her feet “though small, were no longer bound.” Whoa again! Footbinding included literally breaking the bones and reshaping the feet; there’s no going back, and trying to do so would make them worse. So if the author can’t even get the stuff I know about right, how can I trust him on anything else?

Basically, this is a tiresome melodrama--rarely does a conversation pass without someone "screaming" at someone else--that’s neither fun nor enlightening. I’m not surprised that it’s based on stories the author’s grandfather told him as a boy; the storyline and characters seem like they would most appeal to young children, although the vocabulary, slow pacing and level of violence put this book in adult territory. Sadly, then, I just wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
