The Right Side of Forever by Meghan Quinn
The Right Side of Forever - Meghan Quinn

 

Now I can breathe. The Right Side of Forever should be called the The Right Side of Drama. At the heart is love. Undying, heartbreaking, toxic, inspiring and all consuming love. There were many times I felt like my heart was being ripped apart. Each time Quinn knocks you down, she lifts you up with moments of optimism and the presence of hope. It's a long road to the happy ending, but one that was well worth the wait.

You Promised Me Forever (Forever Yours #1) by Monica Murphy
You Promised Me Forever - Monica Murphy

 

A love in transition equals a heartbreak on the horizon. Can Jordan and Amanda forgive the mistakes of their young love and take a chance on building something new? Nobody does the angst of teen aged love like Monica Murphy. You Promised Me Forever takes a detour on the highway of regret and pain before it reaches the ramp of goodbye. It's hard to appreciate what you have until you lose what you always wanted. A life lesson hard earned, but that we're so much better for. What started with a sweetness ends with drama. A bond severed by neglect. Can the damage be repaired by a little time and distance. From lovers to friends then back again. Murphy puts her heart in this tale of second chances.

Ambitious and Abandoned
S. H. I. E. L. D.: Architects of Forever - Jonathan Hickman,Dustin Weaver

Ambitious and abandoned is how I would describe this graphic novel. The premise of this short-lived Marvel series was that S.H.I.E.L.D., the spy organization founded after WWII to hunt down Communists and other insurgents, is actually a ancient secret society which has defended the Earth from alien threats since at least 2620 BC. Every famous scientist, artist, or mystic you can think of was a member, including Da Vinci, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Nostradamus, and Nikola Tesla. More modern members include Howard Stark, the father of Tony (Iron Man) Stark, and Nathaniel Richards, the father of Reed (Mr. Fantastic) Richards.

 

The plot jumps all around and throws in all manner of twists including a war between immortals Newton and Da Vinci over the fate of humanity, a time traveling Tesla who is married to a woman who can turn into a bird (or something), a Chinese scholar named Zhang Heng who hid a baby Celestial, and lots of vague references to ominous sounding things like the Greater Science, the Hidden Arts, and the Human Machine.

 

It all seems very promising, and Dustin Weaver's illustrations are excellent, but it appears not to have been the hit Marvel hopped it would be and the project was quietly abandoned. Hickman has occasionally dropped references to the deep history of S.H.I.E.L.D. in his other Marvel work, suggesting his has not given up on the idea, but we will probably never see a continuation of the series big enough to do justice to the scope of the premise.

Chances
When It's Right (San Francisco Thunder #3) - Victoria Denault

This is the 3rd book in the San Francisco Thunder series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers I recommend reading this hot series in order.

 

Sadie has to be strong.  Her family is counting on her to take them through this trying time.  What she wants or needs does not seem to be relevant, as long as she can hold it together.

 

Griffin also is going through some awful things right now.  He can see that he has to be strong for his daughter and all that is going on.  Can he be strong for Sadie too?

 

This was a hot book right from the beginning.  The characters had sizzled as soon as they met.  Like all this author's works there is humor, heat, and family.  I loved reading it and eagerly devoured each page.  I am hoping to read more about this amazing  series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review by Netgalley, and its publishers.
