Pucked Under By Helena Hunting 99 cents!
Pucked Under (The Pucked Series) - Helena Hunting

Randy Ballistic and Lily LeBlanc are head-over-heels, bed-breakingly, screaming orgasmically in love. But even they have their challenges, mostly outside of the bedroom.

With the off-season coming to a close and the boys gearing up for training camp, one more weekend of fun is the perfect way to welcome the new season.

The entire crew piles into vehicles and drives to Alex and Violet’s Chicago cottage for a few days of relaxation―and hopefully a chance for Randy to shake the anxiety that’s been plaguing him.

Accidental wardrobe malfunctions, typical Violet inspired overshares, and a whole lot of private time round out the perfect weekend getaway.

But the moment they return to the city all of Randy’s angst resurfaces with the arrival of a surprise houseguest.

The calendar might say it is still summer, but the English weather is definitely mid-October like. This upcoming week is the last COYER read-a-thon for summer and Bout of Books cycle 20. So my plan this weekend is to get two print books done before putting aside the rest until the read-a-thon is over or I run out of e-books. In non-reading plans, this weekend will be back to school shopping and going through the kids closets so I can donate/hand me down clothes and know what they need. Ten days to first day of school!

 

Here's my list for the weekend/week ahead:

1. Emma and the Outlaw (Orphan Train #2) by Linda Lael Miller - 41% read

    I'm in a puzzle with this book; on one hand, I am not feeling the MCs and on the other hand, I am sort of interested in the plotline. The heroine is playing a dangerous game with both the hero and the villain, but she is decent otherwise. The hero is a former Confederate soldier (why am I reading this right now??), hoping for the South to rise again and who does not understand, nor respect, the heroine's boundaries (oh hi early 90s historical romance *waves hand*). I won't be reading the other two books in the series.

 

2. Secret Agent Under Fire by Geri Krotow - 15% read

    I would have gotten this book done already if it weren't for the bitchy heroine. Again, pacing issues.

 

3. Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin - 12% read

    I started this book in mid-July. The slowest pace of a book. Something please happen soon! This book is the first in the series, so I am forcing myself to finish it so I can understand what is going on in the later books. I could really use a dose of Li Bai Shen right about now.

 

4. The Bootlegger's Daughter by Lauri Robinson - 12% read

    I started this book in mid-July, after Butterfly Swords lulled me to sleep. I am not feeling either hero, the heroine, or the plot. I'll give it to 30%; if it doesn't move the plot or the characters get better, it is going into the DNF pile.

 

5. The Dragon and the Pearl by Jeannie Lin

 

6. The Sword Dancer by Jeannie Lin

 

7. A Dance with Danger by Jeannie Lin

Deep Magic (Deep Magic #1) by Gillian St. Kevern
Deep Magic - Gillian St. Kevern

The ending seemed as tangled as Dewy's hair at one point, and was dealt with it the same way - cut short. But on the whole - pure magic. I loved it to pieces :) 
And yeah, Vegemite... @.@  lol

BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - Under the Boardwalk (Landmarks #1) by Felice Stevens
Under the Boardwalk - Felice Stevens
Under the Boardwalk is the latest book by Felice Stevens, an author that I have long admired. It's starts with last summer, as our two main characters first lay eyes on each other and want more. The timing isn't right though, so a year goes by. Now we are at this summer.
 
Alexi is an American, with Russian ancestry. He works for his father at the local custard stand, and dreams of travelling the world. Cam is the busker that Alexi dreams about. He has travelled the world, and found that there was no place like home (sorry, couldn't resist!). These two finally connect, and BOOM!!! We're off.
 
I love Felice Stevens' way of writing. She wraps you up, and immerses you in the story. This is one of her 'sweeter' books, I would say, although there is some low-level angst in here. One thing I will always be grateful for, is the explanation given to Cam about what the difference is between ice-cream and custard. As someone who grew up in England, custard is a hot, sweet, liquid that goes on top of treacle tart, or jam roly-poly. Not in a cone! I was thankful when the explanation was given as I then understood what everyone was eating!

good story and characters
Under a Blood Moon - Rachel Graves

Mallory was a detective and her partner;s name was Danny. Then Mallory and Danny got a car about a zombie attack with a officer down. Danny said he didn’t know anything could really make zombie. Then Mallory was stunned to drr two real zombies. Mallory was a dead witch and the zombies should have been hers. Mallory had raised a zombie once her husband Greg but she didn’t know she was a death witch. She didn’t know what she had done and Greg had to be put down by the local police. In general nobody liked zombies. Mallory was a detective with Supernatural Investigative Unit. When they got back to the station Danny and Mallory went right to the Lieutenant’s office and he informed  although they weren’t s due for another large case yet they were getting the zombie case. He also told Mallory she would be getting a shadow team which was a pair of detectives working the same case on the opposite side of the clock and that just proved the zombie case was a serious case. The lieutenant thought there was  more going on and Mallory agreed. There were two type of people  that could raise zombies: death witches and Bokors or Voodoo priests. Mallory was the only death witch in the city. Mallory wanted to get out and start asking questions but there was paperwork to file but there was paperwork to file and that kept Mallory busy until the end ofthe day. Mallory didn’t like the summer always meant heat and boredom to Mallory and she was in love with a vampire- Jakob. Jakob was almost six hundred years old and spoke with a German accent.Mallory felt she and Jakob were closer in the half of year they had been together then Mallory and her husband Greg had been after four years of marriage. Phoebe was Mallory’s best friend and closest witch. Phoebe was a spirit witch and the first to recognize Mallory for she was. Then Mallory heard a raspy voice on her old fashioned answering machine and he said “ You took my my zombies I can  forgive that. But you stay out of things that aren’t your business or maybe next time I take you. Mallory was still learning about all things supernatural. It seemed the zombies visited a store that had refused to pay protection money. Rakish the shop owner gave her names names and called other people to talk to her that had been approached for protection money. But nobody seemed to remember much about the two men who had approached them for protection money. The information Mallory and Danny got  ‘was two white men with medium height and then were given a cellphone number the business owner had been given. Then the last shop they stopped at was a chocolate candy store and the owner was a jaguar . The owner -Indigo said he would   email them a video he had from the time the two werewolves had stepped in and asked his shop and asked about what protection he had in the shop. Then Danny and Mallory went to the phonebook to look up Madame Marie’s the name the zombies had mentioned. The first one they visited didn’t sense the push Mallory but it was different with the spiritual guide.

I really enjoyed this story. I loved the plot and the pace and I felt this was well written. I also love the mystery in the story. I liked the Mallory wasn’t conceited or cocky with what she was. I also loved that we were given some of Jakob’s back story. I really loved how Jakob was concerned that he couldn’t get Mallory pregnant and his protectiveness although he went  a little far on that . I would have liked more of Mallory and Jakob meeting and starting out together. I did feel that there didn’t need to be so many sex scenes in this book. I did chuckle while reading this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
