'Closer' By M. C. Vann
Closer (A Dark Romance, Book 1): The Closer Trilogy - M.C. Vann

'Closer' By M. C. Vann is book One in the " Closer Trilogy" . This starts the story of Ally and Henry.
Ally accidental meet Henry at a flower show and then later back in her home town.
Ally is a complete opposite of Henry. Where is a innocent working girl and Henry is any but that. Ally knows she should stay away from Henry but that doesn't stop her from getting closer to him.
This book starts off a little slow for me but it does pick up. Also note that this book ends so that the next book can pick up where this seem to leave us.
Overall liked the book and hope to see the other book out soon.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Went down the freebie rabbithole browsing over on Amazon again
Superfoods Cookbook: Book One: Over 75 Recipes of Quick & Easy, Low Fat, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Low Cholesterol, Whole Foods Superfoods for Weight Loss ... cookbook - weight loss plan for women 29) - Don Orwell
The Burning Point (Circle of Friends Trilogy Book 1) - Mary Jo Putney

Ketogenic Diet: The Ketogenic Diet Cookbook: 75+ Delicious and Healthy Recipes for Rapid Weight Loss and Amazing Energy (Ketogenic Diet, Intermittent Fasting, Paleo Diet, Ketogenic Recipes Book 1) - John T. Smith

Well, these were free today so despite my trying not to download so many freebies ...

 

I did avoid the ones with book descriptions not readable without a lot of "read more" scrolling so — you know the ones that the synopsis says things like the actual screenshot below:

 

 

 

 

 

Five chapters a week for July bookclub read of Old Man's War.

 

Breath of Heaven (Well of Sorrows) (Volume 3) - Joshua Palmatier,Benjamin Tate  Breath of Heaven (Well of Sorrows)    

 

Plus whatever library ebooks I borrow (lots on waitlist plus binge-ing some series) will interrupt regular reading schedule.

 

Another bookclub read of whatever TOR offers free (mid-month?) plus 24in48 readathon July 22-23 will also disrupt or remake plans.

Review:

"Until Ray" By Cheryl Robinson

My Thoughts....

What a very interesting read that will keep you turning the pages and leave you by the end wanting more!

When I thought about the story after reading it I found it really sad especially for Sarita. To me the writing was definitely printed on the wall for her to see but for some reason Sarita wasn't able to see it even though she was a very smart person. Sarita had been warned especially by her mother but like so many of us she thought she was following her heart. But was Ray the right man that would truly love Sarita? This author really gives the reader quite a story that you will give one many thoughts long after the read. The characters were simply off the chart...from Ray, Sarita, Solomon, Cynthia, Miss King, Vera, Paw Paw, Boone, Sharon, Faith, Joy, Graham, Tisha, Reid to Veronica to name a few were all well developed, portrayed, defined and believable definitely giving this story a realness that one could feel as if they were there in the mist of it all.

I will not say much about Ray other than ... yes, he let me down and all I can say from that is he definitely needs help! After saying that I will stop and only say pick up "Until Ray" to see how well this author present to the readers such a outstanding read that will leave you shaking your head, saying wow and wanting more! Be prepared for a long well thought out read. It will definitely be interesting how this trilogy will continue on because there are lots of questions that need to be answered and I will look forward to reading more about it. Would I recommend? YES!!

Scales and Legends (The Merworld Trilogy, #3) by B. Kristin McMichael
Scales and Legends (The Merworld Trilogy Book 3) - B. Kristin McMichael
  1. Kristin McMichael’s SCALES AND LEGENDS is an amazing conclusion to The Merworld Trilogy. The story takes place following book two, SONGS AND FINS. The sirens are on the brink of war.  However, Whitney Mallory, may be the key to saving the sirens.  This contemporary urban fantasy is suitable for young adults. 

 

I adored this story.  I am continually amazed by B. Kristin McMichael’s creativity.  We discover some interesting things about Whitney in this novel.  She undergoes some attention-grabbing challenges.  Whitney’s character has grown tremendously since the Skinwalkers Witchling series.  She is a wonderful character that is brave and selfless.

 

I love that characters from the Blue Eyes Trilogy, the Day Human Trilogy, and Skinwalkers Witchling made appearances in SCALES AND LEGENDS.  The connections are clever.  That being said, you can follow the story without reading those series.  However, I highly suggest them as well.

 

 SCALES AND LEGENDS was exciting from start to finish.  I read this book in one sitting.  The details were carefully thought out.  The Epilogue was well concluded.  I’m looking forward to the next spin-off of Jaxton Kristian's story in the NIGHT HUMAN HUNTER.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Dazzling
Dazzling: The Diamond Trilogy, Book I (BookShots Flames) - Elizabeth Hayley,James Patterson

Siobhan is an artist who takes a hostess job at an upscale bar. Derick is a billionaire (aren't they all?) who patronizes the bar. Siobhan literally falls down (seriously- she HAS to be clumsy) in front of him. But wait! He catches her and is instantly interested.
This was predictable and boring. Luckily, this was short, so I didn't waste a lot of time on it or money (Thanks to the library!). It's also part of a trilogy- cliffhanger ahead! No HFN (much less a HEA). And guess what? I really don't care and won't be reading further.
