Made the Grade: Fools Gold Series, Book 5

- This is an ARC book - Format: Paperback | Pages: 378 | Release Date: August 30, 2011 | Publisher: HQN Books

"Only Yours" [Fools Gold Series, Book 5] by Susan Mallery

My Book Summary : Just when Montana thinks, her day is going pretty well her latest service dog-in-training gets away from her and takes her on a wild goose chase, leading her right into the unwanted arms of the newest surgeon in town, Simon. After that disastrous meeting, she gets recruited to show this same man around town, in hopes that he will end up staying and help out the town even more. However, once she gets to know him better she seems to stop promoting the town to him and hangs out with him for him just being him.

For Simon's part, even though the town is nice, he's had the towns he's worked in proposition him to try to get him to stay before. Even so, when his time is up it is always time for him to move onto the next place where he'll be able do some good. However, Montana is nothing like the women he's used to. She's fun, sweet, and when he's with her, he is at times like someone he's never been before.

The question is now, when he's time is up .... will he be able to leave or even want to?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, this is a sweet novel. I really enjoyed reading about Montana and her dogs, Simon with his fragile heart that makes him want to be perfect, and learning new things about Montana's family. Montana and Simon make a great couple and this novel tells you why!

Also, you get to learn about another one of Montana's older siblings and her nephew makes me very curious as to what will happen with them and whom her brother will end up with. All of the side stories were really great to read about, but the one about her mother was a little drawn out and a little boring.

Overall, if you’re familiar with the series, be sure to check out this novel too!!

She paused, only to find Pia staring at her.
"Wow." Pia grinned. "You've fallen for him."
Heat exploded on her cheek and she ducked her head. "Don't say that. I think he's interesting. It's nothing more than that."
"It's a whole lot more than that."
It was the kisses, she thought. How was she supposed to ignore them? ~ within Chapter 7

  • "Until There Was You" by Kristan Higgins
    Publication Released Date: October 25, 2011

    Author's Book Description:
      She’s having serious prom-night déjà vu...

      Posey Osterhagen can't complain. She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she's surrounded by her loveable, if off-center, family and she has a boyfriend—sort of. Still, something's missing. Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking...something like Liam Murphy.

      When Posey was sixteen, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart. But now he's back, sending Posey's traitorous schoolgirl heart into overdrive once again. She should be giving him a wide berth, but it seems fate has other ideas...

    I love how this author is with her novels, she always seems to give her characters a pet of some kind, and they always live in some new/different location (usually) up north. Making a definite that I'll be reading this book!! I cannot wait!! ♥

    Disappointmentville: Immortal Realms Series, Book 2

    - This is an ARC book - Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 352 KB | Release Date: May 2011 | Publisher: Red Sage Publishing

    "Dark Obsession" [Immortal Realms Series, Book 2] by Suzanne Rock

    My Book Summary : After a bad split and an end to the affair that Javier and Catherine shared over two centuries ago, things have changed for each of them and they have changed as well, now Javier wants to have Catherine back into his life and earn her heart. However, it'll be a lot harder then just showing up and swooping her into his arms. They'll have to earn each others trust again, while fighting to save the lives of Catherine's king, the lives of the fey, Catherine's lover, and themselves from an unknown evil that is conspiring with the current fey king.

    Will they be able to make it out alive and with their hearts still intact??

    My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. I really liked Javier and Talen as characters, their roles in this novel were well thought out and they were addicting alpha males that you just love to read about. Catherine was an okay character, there were times I loved her relationship with Javier and there were times that I just wanted to smack her for some of the stupid things she decided to be true. Overall, it was a gripping and stimulating novel!! However, I think I would have liked it better and given it a higher rating if I had read the first book in this series, "Dark Deception," before this novel. So, I would definitely recommend it for those of you who have read the first novel in this series. If the author writes another novel for this series that has Talen as the main character then I'll most definitely be reading it!!

    Javier stiffened. “What the—”
    Something snapped, and then the vibrations in the air ceased. Catherine lifted her head and tried to dispel the fog. “What is it?”
    Javier blinked and curled his finger under her chin. His eyes softened as he studied her face. “Nothing.” The air began to shimmer around her again, then snap back into place. “Fuck.” Javier lowered his arms and stepped back. “How did the little weasel do it?” He paced around the edges of the tent, enraged. “How?”
    “What?” Catherine followed him around with her eyes, confused.
    “He‟s blocking me from leaving somehow.”
    Catherine flexed her fingers as feeling returned to her limbs. Did he just try to glamour her? Anger swelled up in her chest. Of all the pompous. . . ~ within Chapter 6

    Made the Grade: The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees

    - This is an ARC book - Format: Paperback | Pages: 261 | Release Date: September 27, 2011 | Publisher: HarlequinTEEN

    "The Juliet Spell" by Douglas Rees

    My Book Summary : Miranda (Miri) loves the theatre! She takes after her mother that way, who used to be an actress before she became a nurse. However, the one part her mother never got to play, but wanted to, was Juliet in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. So, when her high school's community theatre group decides on that play to perform, Miranda wants desperately to get the part of Juliet. So much so, does she want that part, that she take a 'become famous' spell and changes it into wanting to become Juliet. As she's performed these type of spells before, and not finding or getting anything out of them, she assumes this will be just like her other tries .... until it's not. Instead of what she is asking for it brings William Shakespeare's younger brother Edmund to her.

    Once the confusion has been settled, he is curious about life in the reality that she is living in now, and more then will to help her out in getting the part. However, it doesn't take long for Miranda to get lost in Edmund's charm and wish for something more with him ....

    My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! I was pleasantly surprised with this novel!! At first it started off slow and the characters were very predictable, leaving me thinking I knew exactly where the author was going to take this book, then all of the plot twists took off. As soon as one plot twist ended a new one began and the story gets all the more intriguing! I will say I'm not completely happy with the ending but it works out well with the plot. Plus, I really like that he took real people (the Shakespeare brothers) and put them into an unusual, and unreal, setting. At the very end of the novel I was happy to see a write up of what history has on Edmund Shakespeare/Shakeshaft, making it seem like this could have actually happened. Very Clever!!

    Book Teaser(s) :
    "An interesting rehearsal, I thought," Drew said.
    Bobby shrugged and fluttered one hand. "Just a read-through. Not a rehearsal. The real work starts now."
    "Edmund certainly was impressive," Drew continued. "Has he played much Shakespeare?"
    "I think so," I said.
    "I heard a rumor that he played Juliet," Bobby said. "Is he gay?"
    "Not hardly."
    "Just asking," Bobby said.
    "My good friend, I think you are feeling the gnawing bite of jealousy," Drew said.
    "You know what you can bite," Bobby replied.
    "Temper, temper. I'm here for you," Drew said and gave him a fake hug.
    "I'm here for coffee," Bobby said, and ordered a mocha.
    "Bobby has always harbored a strange affection for Vivian," Drew said. "Well, maybe not strange. But affection, nonetheless. Or maybe not so much affection as unbridled lust." ~ within Chapter 9
    "And ye, Miri. What would ye have me know?"
    He looked as arrogant as Tybalt.
    And I realized that I couldn't say anything. Because what I wanted to say was unsayable, especially in front of my mom. A lot of things about Wrong Girl Versus Right Girl.
    "Well?" he said. "What do ye wish me to know?"
    And like magic I knew what I could say.
    "I've got just two words for you," I said. "Anne Hathaway." ~ within Chapter 16

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 186 KB | Release Date: April 2011 | Publisher: Siren Publishing

    "Mate of the Wolf" by Mandy Rosko

    My Book Summary : While on a camping trip, to get away from her obligations, Shelley decides to go on a hike .... and wakes up laying beside a naked man, Michael, out in the woods away from her camp. Once Michael wakes up too and sees her, he decides to kidnaps her and lock her up in his cabin. Soon, even though he is her kidnapper, Shelley finds that he treats her better then anyone ever has before. But will Michael ever let her go? And if he does decide to let her go, by then will she want to?

    My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. This novel's plot is creative, intriguing, and I cannot wait until I read the next novel to see where it will go. However, I'm not quite sure I liked how short it was, I think it would of been better if it was a bit longer.

    Book Teaser(s) :
    “Hey," she said.
    He swallowed. Though she wasn't naked like he was, his eyes roved over her body. "Are you all right? I didn't scratch you, did I?" he asked, his voice serious.
    Shelley yawned, stretched, and sat up. She giggled at his desperate expression. "You were a perfect puppy."
    He jerked his head. "Puppy?" ~ within Chapter 3

    Made the Grade: The Game of Love by Jeanette Murray

    - This is an ARC book - Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 468 KB | Release Date: August 29, 2011 | Publisher: Carina Press

    "The Game of Love" by Jeanette Murray

    My Book Summary : Christina (Chris) has just started a new job as a high school math teacher and the girl's tennis coach, making plans to start a new life. And with her past behind her she can finally move on .... right?

    When Chris meets Brett, the high school football coach, for the first time she already knows she wants nothing to do with him. Especially since after her first few times talking with him he seems arrogant and selfish, not to mention that he used to be a pro athlete--which is already a major red mark against him. However, for Brett, after getting to know Chris a bit, he'll do his best to prove to her that he's the guy for her.

    Now, after a while of spending time together, and complying to their attraction for each other, Brett will have to prove to Chris that what they have is more then just an affair. But will Chris agree or be ready to take that next step??

    My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, it was a cute/sweet novel but I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. I mean the main characters were good and the plot was okay, but around 2/3s of the way in it was just WAY to dragged out. I got really annoyed with Chris. I mean I could understand her motives but I just felt like shaking her at some points. I did love the secondary characters, the last chapter and epilogue though, those redeemed the book for me.

    I recommend it for those who want a light read that's a romance too.

    "Lord of the Vampires" [Royal House of Shadows Series, Book 1] by Gena Showalter

    My Book Summary : Nicolai has lost everything. His family. His crown, title and throne. His body. His abilities (magic). And his memories. He has no idea who he was before he was bought on the Slave Market. However, he is determined to gain his freedom, seek his vengeance (for what he doesn't know), and get his revenge for what has been done to him since he was bought. To do all of this he needs help. So, he send out the magic within him, that he was able to reach, to find a women who was not tainted by 'The Queen of Hearts' madness. In doing so, Jane came into his world.

    Jane is a human. However, she has worked for a government agency for years so she knows about the dual world (just not how to cross it), vampires, and some of the other supernatural creatures. And since she has been having steamy dreams of Nicolai over the past couple of months, she's not worried (completely) about how she got there. But the 'why' of it she is curious about...

    Once she realizes what Nicolai's plans are, she agrees to help him.

    When fighting for their lives and being in constant close proximity, their attraction for each other in undeniable. But when the time comes for Nicolai to choose between his duty and vengeance or Jane will he be able to?? And will he decide to betray the one person who helped him regain everything he's lost?

    My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! I wasn't able to resist the Dark Seducer anymore then the women in the book did! It was an addicting read, that I couldn't seem it get enough of. Plus, the ending was great too!! The plot was enticing, Jane was a colorful character from her previous life to the changes that she goes through, and Nicolai is many a girl’s fantasy!! If you’re into the science fiction/paranormal drama then I highly recommend this book to you!!

    "Only Mine" [Fools Gold Series, Book 4] by Susan Mallery

    My Book Summary : Dakota has had some upsets in her life recently, and that isn't including her boss, Raoul, loaning her to work on this new reality show (located in Fools Gold) so the executives won't ruin the town. But when Finn walks into her life ... things between them go from casual to scorching quickly. Even though Finn is originally in Fool Gold to get his younger twin brother off of this new reality show and back into college in Alaska, where they are all from and (in Finn's view point) they need to be, he can't regret getting to know Dakota. She's fun, easy to talk to, and calms him and his worries down more than once. However, they both know this is just a casual relationship they have together and as soon as his brothers get kicked off the show and either shape up and do what they should be doing or he kicks them into shape himself, he definitely not planning on staying in Fools Gold any longer then he needs to be.

    So, when Dakota's life goes from being single and carefree to one with a whole lot more responsibilities will Finn decide to end what they have and move on or will he realize that what he really needs just happens to be right in front of him??

    My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! So far in this series I have read the first and third books and even though I loved the characters, the plots fell a little short for me ..... but this book definitely topped them both for me .... from the main characters to the secondary characters, I couldn't get enough and was rooting for them all!! Ever since I finished the third book I have wanted to read the stories about the triplets, and I was pleasantly surprised by the turn of events in this novel! Dakota turned out to be a great main character, from her relationship with her sisters to what she wanted in her future to the relationship she had with Finn ... as I said I couldn't get enough!

    Then to just add to it ... Sasha and Stephen!! Oh, my ... I SO hope they'll have a book of their own since I really want Stephen and Aurelia together, and I want to see what happens to Sasha and his dream of fame .. will he make it and will he find anyone for himself?? Very addicting!

    Made the Grade: Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 526 KB | Release Date: August 2011 | Publisher: HarperTeen

    "Epic Fail" by Claire LaZebnik

    My Book Summary : Elise just moved, with her parents and 4 sisters, to L.A. and started at a private school where her parents both work at. Her older sister, Juliana, and her are very close, since they are only a year apart (Elise a junior and Juliana a senior in High School). On the first day Elise isn't so sure about their new place since everyone seems to be wearing designer clothes more so then anything she's used to (or can afford) and she doesn't seem to fit in. However, Juliana fits in real well, so well in fact that they get to sit at the "popular" table because of a guy she hit it off with.

    Derek has been going to this same school for years, and is the best friend of the guy Juliana starts hanging out with but he seems to be very standoffish when Elise meets him. One of those reasons he is that way is because of his movie star parents making it so everyone wants to get close to him and be his friend (or more). Because of his best friend and Elise's sister they spend a lot of time together. Making Elise the envy of all the girls and her trying to figure out the mystery that is Derek. But when things are said about another guy that Elise has made friends with but isn't told the reasons, conclusions get made, and things get a bit colder between Derek and Elise especially when their pride and prejudice come into play.

    My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars .... I'm very sorry to say but I was disappointed by this novel, not a Disappointmentville type, but after all of the glowing reviews that I've read I guess I expected it to be a bit more. However, I will say that this author has taken a great spin on the Jane Austen novel "Pride and Prejudice" and turn it into a first rate plot for this century. I do like how she made Elise's younger sisters to have a bit more of a head on their shoulders. I liked the interaction between Derek, Elise, Juliana, Chase, and Chelsea. I am kinda disappointed that she basically drops off on the side story about Elise's mother and the school. And I guess I expected more out of Derek's mother too.

    I don't know ... I just wish there was more to it then how it ended I guess. But it was very creative and on there are a lot of glowing reviews about this novel so you never know, if you like Jane Austen novels then give this novel a try, you might like it a lot more then I did.

    Maybe I'd like it better if there was a sequel to wrap all the loose ends up in. *shrug*

    Book Teaser(s) :
    "Why'd you come tonight?" I asked abruptly.
    "Chase wanted to."

    "Now that's a little weird," he said, with that brief shadow of a smile I'd seen once or twice before. ~ within Chapter 6

    - This is an ARC book - Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 383 KB | Release Date: June 2011 | Publisher: Carina Press

    "Learning Curves" by Elyse Mady

    My Book Summary : Leanne has had to deal with her mother pushing her to be more like her (a beauty queen type) all of her life but it seems she was good enough. Or at least never as good as her mother's goddaughter, Gillian, who can seem to do no wrong in Leanne's mother's eyes. Because of all that, Leanne went in the complete different route, then what her mom wanted, by being the studious type of girl.

    Now years later Leanne is just about finished getting her PhD in English, and because of her mother she gets dragged to Gillian’s bachelorette party. While at the party, located at a strip club, Leanne is enamored with one of the male strippers and Gillian soon decides that she wants to proposition that same stripper. So, out of regard for Gillian's fiancé Leanne decides to make sure that nothing will happen between Gillian and the stripper. But once she gets into the greenroom in the back things completely change for her when she meets Brandon, the stripper she liked, and they have scorching encounter, afterwards though they go their separate ways.

    That is until they both find out that they go to the same college for their PhD's, so it's harder then they thought to not be involved. Especially when Brandon starts acting like a friend and whenever they get close to each other their attraction seems to get harder and harder to deny. However, just when things start going good for each of them, the bottom seems to fall out when a certain nemesis makes plans to ruin both of them and their relationship.

    My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! This novel was sweet and sexy!! The sex scenes were very HOT and I could not get enough of Brandon!!!! Brandon pretty much made this novel for me! Since Leanne is nice, but the way she acted within the first half of the book made it hard for me to relate to her, but in the end the plot was great and everything fell into place.

    Feasted On: The Mercian Trilogy, Book 1

    - This is an ARC book - Format: Hardcover | Pages: 263 | Release Date: September 27, 2011 | Publisher: Egmont USA

    "Blood" [The Mercian Trilogy, Book 1] by K.J. Wignall

    My Book Summary : For over seven hundred years Will (William of Mercia) has known the thing that bit him, in 1256, changed him. Until the recent years, through knowledge he gained in books, he wasn't sure of what one of his "type" was called, as no one was there to tell him or show him what he could or would have to do now. However, he does plan to get vengeance on the one who did this to him and his family though, no matter what happens.

    Now during his recent exit from "hibernation," Will is in another time period and it seems the rules have completely changed. Especially when you now have your "food" giving you prophesies about your destiny, a person comes into your life that you would now do anything for, and you have spirits/demons and other magical beings out to see you killed.

    For a guy who always wondered why this happened to him, or what the purpose might be for this to have happened, it looks like his questions might start being answered ..... if he can just not get killed (or any of his new friends killed) along the way.

    My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!!! This is an EXCELLENT novel, that takes on a wonderful new twist to the YA vampire theme!! I love how this novel tells you what happens in a rapid pace format but then also fills you in on Will's past in a diary-type setting. Very well written. And for someone like me who doesn't like mystery novels that much, this one kept my attention the whole way through!!

    Book Teaser(s) :
    "What happened?"
    Will turned to look at the girl who was sitting on the edge of the step, rubbing her head.
    "I think you banged your head."
    "Cute but dumb, just my luck."
    "Nothing. I know I banged my head. What I mean is . . ." She sounded incredulous as she said, "Did you beat them up or something?"
    "No, not really," he said, relieved that she hadn't seen most of what had happened.
    "So I don't owe you anything?"
    "Of course not, nor would you if I had fought with them." ~ within Chapter 7

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 582 KB | Release Date: April 2010 | Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

    "A Table for Three" [New York Series, Book 1] by Lainey Reese

    My Book Summary : Riley has just moved to New York, starts her new job in two weeks, and plans to spend her first night in New York checking out the night scene. After she tells her cabby to take her to a club that has a mixture of celebs with the everyday people ... she finds more then she may have bargained for, but she's willing to try it out!

    When Cade comes across Riley in his club, he plans to tell the "little innocent" that this isn't the right club for her, but after he first meets/sees her she meets all of his expectations in the type of girl he likes and he can't seem to turn her away. By the next morning he thinks he may have found the girl for him ... now he just has to see if his best friend, Trevor, agrees. Since Cade and Trevor have been sharing their women for years now and it soon looks like Trevor just might agree. Now all they need to do is convince Riley that this is more then a fling.

    However, just when it seems that things are working out for all of them, someone from Cade and Trevor's past comes in and tries to destroy everything they have with Riley. Will that person succeed? Or will the three of them prove true love can survive anything??

    My Book Review : THIS BOOK WAS A REREAD:: Then (February 2011): 3.5 out of 5 stars | Now (August 2011): 4 out of 5 stars!! This book is full of m/f/m ménage, bdsm, and steamy PDA to keep the mouth watering and your mind wandering!! It's one of those books where you learn that love can come from any type of relationship! It definitely opened my eyes ... and kept me wishing it was me instead of her at some points! =0)

    These three characters you just can't get enough of!! The guys are smart, funny, and domineering ... and the girl is sweet, loving, and experimental! The plot was great and the epilogue was the perfect cherry on top!

    He turned his head and looked at Riley sandwiched between him and Trevor. She was wide-awake. The cell phone hadn't done it, he knew because she hadn't shifted or stretched or even moved when it rang.
    "How long have you been awake, Riley?"
    "Your heart beats sixty-eight times a minute," she said instead of answering. "You breathe thirteen times a minute. Trevor is seventy-two and fifteen. Only, every three minutes Trevor's breathing stutters a little, and for that minute he breaths twelve instead."
    Cade stared at her, giving her his best boss stare.
    "About an hour and a half." When Cade groaned she added, "I told you I was a morning person." Cade ran a weary hand over his eyes, and Trevor spoke against the back of her neck. "My breath stutters?" ~ within Chapter 8

    Interview with Stacey Espino

    Stacey Espino resides in beautiful Ontario, Canada where she is busy raising her five school-aged children. She loves being a Canadian but could do without the brutal winters.

    When she’s not escaping into the romantic settings she creates on her laptop, she’s reading one of the many books threatening to overtake her bedroom.

    She also writes M/M Erotic Romance under the penname, Winona Wilder.
    [Find out more about Stacey & her books HERE!]

    My Q&A with Stacey Espino :

    Jess : Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

    Stacey : I'm in my mid-thirties, married with 5 children. I'm a romantic at heart, always planning out my next novel from every day situations.

    Jess : When and why did you begin writing?

    Stacey : I've loved writing every since I was a pre-teen. It was an emotional and creative outlet for me. I only started writing for publication just over a year ago, and now I'm writing full-time and couldn't be happier about it.

    Jess : Do you have a specific writing style?

    Stacey : Hmm. I'm not sure, but I suppose my readers would recognize my writing. I tend to add a heaping of angst in many of my novels to keep things real. I do like variety, whether in genre or the mood of the book I write.

    Jess : What would your ideal career be, if you couldn't be an author?

    Stacey : Well, I've had several unsatisfying jobs in the past. Being an author truly is my dream job, but if I had to pick another I'd probably say a teacher.

    Jess : Which of your characters would you most/least to invite to dinner, from which book and why?

    Stacey : Most: I'd probably invite Wyatt Carson from Hardcore Cowboys because he's a gentleman with that darker side to keep things interesting.

    Least: Javen from Fearless Love can be a handful with his mood swings and suspicious nature.

    Jess : What sparked the idea for your series, Pack Seduction?

    Stacey : Like many of my books, the initial idea came to me in a dream. It revolved around the history of how my shifters came to be and I began to develop a hierarchy from that original source of dna. The royal sisters were born. The final book, The Last Princess, will be the last book in the trilogy and out soon. The second book, Freya's Mates is out now.

    Jess : Which usually comes first for you, the character(s) story or the idea for the novel?

    Stacey : I just need an idea. My DH often helps out with this. An idea and that opening scene is all I need to get rolling. I let the story and characters take it from there.

    Jess : How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

    Stacey : I have written over 19 books between Stacey Espino and my penname Winona Wilder. A few are not out just yet. I love my Immortal Love series, and I plan to write the third book soon. Damaged Cowboys has a soft spot in my heart, too.

    Jess : What is your latest published book? And if you could write it all over again, would you change anything about it?

    Stacey : My latest published book is Hardcore Cowboys. It will be out August 17th 2011. If I could write it all over, I would cut the beginning down a bit. It was important for me to flesh out the heroine before she met her men to show the contrast of her life before and after, but I may have gone a tad overboard. Live and learn :)

    Jess : Do you have any other projects in the works? If so, can you share a little of your current work with us?

    Stacey : I'm always working on several projects. I'm just about to sub the third book in Winona's Coming Out series. I'm working on my first vampire menage, the third Ride 'em Hard book, the last Pack Seduction book, and about half a dozen others. LOL.

    Jess : Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

    Stacey : Kresley Cole! I love her humor and the richness of her plots.

    Jess : What book are you reading now? How do you like it so far?

    Stacey : Right now I'm reading Friday Night Bites By Chloe Neill. I loved the first one and so far this one is great, too.

    Jess : Which question are you most sick of answering in interviews?? =0)

    Stacey : LOL. Maybe 'why' I became I writer. I don't think it's a choice, it's a part of who you are and it's unnatural to stifle it.

    -- Thanks, Stacey!! Be sure to check out Hardcore Cowboys, coming soon!! --

    Feasted On: Eternal Guardians Series, Book 1

    Format: Paperback | Pages: 321 | Release Date: May 2010 | Publisher: Love Spell

    "Marked" [Eternal Guardians Series, Book 1] by Elisabeth Naughton

    My Book Summary : Acacia’s (Casey) life and everything she knew herself to be completely changes when Theron, the leader of the Argonauts (an elite group of guardians that defend the immortal realm against the threats of the Underworld), comes into her life in the most unexpected way. Now she has to deal with the fact that she has a heritage that she wasn’t originally aware of, the fact that she doesn’t have long left to live, and a ‘man’ who she just can’t get out of her mind.

    Theron never expected Casey was the girl he needs to turn over for the prophesy to come true. Casey is also someone he never expects, as she has and is all of the things he would ever want in a female. But duty and honor to his people must come first! However, will his honor and duty come first ... even if that means giving up the one woman who might just happen to be his soul mate?

    My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! This story takes myths to a whole new level!! Casey is a feisty, opinionated, kind-hearted woman, while Theron is an arrogant, strong-willed, passionate man. Reading about the two of them together it’s like you can see the sparks flying off of the page! The twists in this book are really unexpected and even when the book leaves you hanging in some instances you still aren’t disappointed! Plus, the side stories about the other characters lure you in and make you sooo very curious as to what will happen next in this series!

    I’d recommend this to anyone who enjoys a non-typical fantasy drama!!

    Book Teaser(s) :
    The man turned toward Acacia, who'd somehow managed to scramble back onto the counter. "Casey, come down."
    "Oh, my God. Nick. Jesus Christ, what the hell---?"
    The blond's big hands plucked Acacia right off the counter before Theron had a chance to stop him, and he set her on her feet in the middle of the store. The man grasped her shoulders and held firm. "Take a breath, Casey. More will be coming."
    "More? What do you---?"
    Then, almost as if she'd just realized the two of them weren't alone, her eyes flashed to Theron, understanding dawning in their violet depths. And for the first time since he'd met her, he realized how similar those eyes were to the king's.
    "Those things," she said. "I saw them that night with you. Outside XScream."
    The man she'd called Nick glanced up sharply. "You brought them here? To her?"
    "No," Theron said, shoving his weapon back into its scabbard at his back. Now he was the bad guy? Fuck that. "I was sent to protect her." ~ within Chapter 12

    "Waiting On" Wednesday: Burning Rubber

  • Today's "Waiting On" Wednesday by Jill - click here

  • "Burning Rubber" [Extreme Racing Series, Book 2] by Pamela Britton
    Publication Released Date: October 18, 2011

    Author's Book Description:
      In racing, you’re in or you’re out. Sometimes both at the same time...

      Go ahead, call Callie Monroe the queen of fools. She already does. After NASCAR slammed its doors in her face, she came up with the idea for the X-TREME Racing League. Now she’s all but relegated to pit row while her business partner—aka XRL’s bankroll—takes the credit.

      One look at NASCAR champion Derrick Derringer red-lines Callie’s fantasy gauge. And when he actually notices her next to her Playboy-hot boss, he makes her sweat.

      Derrick has always been attracted to the studious type, but Callie’s got the cherry on top of her beauty and brains: she’s a gear head. She’s also scared to death of him. He’s never had to work hard to get a woman in his bed, but with Callie, he finds himself changing tactics for a prize he never expected. Her heart.

      Callie has no intention of being Derrick’s next “checkered flag”, but if she’s to lure him over to XRL, she’ll play the game. A dangerous one. Not only because his kiss sends her focus sliding out of control. There’s a saboteur who seems intent on putting XRL into the wall—no matter how many people have to die.

      Product Warnings:
      The author doesn’t guarantee this book will help you “get lucky”, but does have documented proof that the love, laughter, naughtiness and hot, hot, hot sex in this book will leave you gasping for air. Dangerous curves ahead!

    I've read some of this author's novels before ... and even though I haven't liked them all ... I always seem to want to read what she'll be putting out next!! Plus .. even if I'm not a big racing fan I definitely enjoy reading about racing romance books!! This once sounds like a hit! I can't wait to start reading it!

    Made the Grade: Pack Seduction Series, Book 1

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 141 KB | Release Date: April 2011 | Publisher: Evernight Publishing

    "Claiming Their Mate" [Pack Seduction Series, Book 1] by Stacey Espino

    My Book Summary : Carna and her sisters are all royalty amongst their kind. And by being royalty, their blood helps make sure that the breeds of whoever they mate won't die out. Because of that responsibility and because of the fact that when she became of mature age all male shifter thought they could just have her and she'd be theirs, her sisters and her ran away, split up, and went into hiding so they could possibly find lives and men of their own.

    Since then Carna's life hasn't been so great but it has been hers.

    However, one night four men (friends) find and kidnap her with plans of seducing and mating her. But Carna will have none of their games. She'll never mate a kidnapper or someone who only want her for her heritage. And that's all they want ... right?

    The guys will go to great lengths just to prove how wrong she is!!

    My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! HOT, SWEET, and SEXY!! This book pulls you in and doesn't let go! Who wouldn't want to read about four alpha males who will do anything in their power for their mate!

    My only complaints it was too short and rushed through everything. Plus, the ending could of had more.

    Book Teaser(s) :
    The natural desire to mate, to bond, pulled her under its spell, but she had to resist the call.
    "Touch me. Please." The need in her voice surprised her. Close to the point of no return, her control snapped back to attention when a new male voice replied.
    "You don't have to beg, darlin'."
    "Back already?" asked Blue, not shifting his position, only turning his head to the entrance of the cave. "Your timing is impeccable."
    "Good thing, too. I don't want you starting without me." ~ within Chapter 4

    Made the Grade: ParaRealm Series, Book 1

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 447 KB | Release Date: March 2011 | Publisher: Tholden Press

    "Fierce Dawn" [ParaRealm Series, Book 1] by Amber Scott

    My Book Summary : When they were younger Sadie and her little sister, Heather, had to be the ones to make sure that everything was okay with their mother. Especially with her ramblings, non-legible journals, and antics that some days made them wonder if she should be in a loony bin or not. It also didn't help that there was no one who would voluntarily help them out.

    Now years later, they've both have grown up and their lives have definitely changed ... or at least Sadie's has. Two years ago, after their mother past away, Sadie did somethings that were like her mother's antics, so much so that Heather now asks like a mother hen to Sadie now, controlling her every move. Sadie understands her sister's concern but things are getting better for her. She has a good job (even if it doesn't pay), a sweet friend, and she is agreeing to therapy. Plus, there is this really hot guy who visits her job a lot that she would love to meet. Things are good ... now if only Heather would see that.

    However, Sadie is keeping a secret ..... she keeps having dreams of that hot guy that visits her job. And not only romantic ones either. Could this mean she is becoming more like her mother then ever before? Is she going to go crazy at any moment now?

    And right when Sadie thinks she just might have gone crazy ... her world and everything she thought she knew gets turned upside down.

    My Book Review : 3.8 out of 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!! This is an intriguing new series with a storyline that hooked me from the beginning. This series seems like a mixture of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series, the X-Men, and R. G. Alexander's Children of the Goddess series all wrapped up in a new different and exciting way!!

    The characters are great to read, I loved the back stories and the twists that came along the way! I'm really curious as to what will happen next ... to Elijah's friends (new and old) and to Sadie's family. Also .... to see how/if Sadie's powers will grow!! I do hope that even though in the coming books in this series Sadie & Elijah will be secondary characters, I hope that they will still have decent size rolls in the series. Since my only problem with this novel was even though it ended really good, I still thought it ended too soon ... plus the cliff hanger (of sorts) in the epilogue really doesn't help much at all. =0/

    Book Teaser(s) :
    Elijah took in her visage and pulled back. "Sadie, I cannot keep kissing you."
    "Wow. Um, you sure know how to make a girl feel special, Elijah." Sadie sat up, the pain gone. Embarrassed over her reaction, she tried to pretend she didn't know he saw her lust for him. "I didn't think we'd really practice playing boyfriend girlfriend. I mean, between being chased by immortals and watched by human haters, I think I can actually manage my family wondering who you are." ~ within Chapter 15

    Feasted On: Tova Gallagher Series, First Entry

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 197 KB | Release Date: July 2011 | Publisher: Self-Published

    "Ecstatic Evil" [Tova Gallagher Series, First Entry] by Amanda McNeil

    My Book Summary : Growing up Tova knew all about the fight between good versus evil. She would have to as she's half-demon (also known as a halvesie) and has been told over the years (by her demon cousin and a fairy) that at some point she'd have to choose a side. Just recently though she gets informed that she has two weeks to give her final decision about which side she chooses. However, when a mysterious stranger comes into her life thinking about her future is the last thing on her mind.

    My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! This is a great start to what seems to be a compelling series! Tova is a girl who knows who she is but not really what she wants. Also, she is tough and a bad-ass too everyone she doesn't know but as soon as she's around Greg her demeanor completely changes. Basically she's a great character to read about! I can't wait to see where this series will go next!

    Book Teaser(s) :
    "You led me to believe you were really interested in me, but apparently you just wanted someone to hook up with."
    "Where the hell did you get that idea?"
    She snaps her eyes back to him, standing there looking dangerous and powerful, even in his underwear. "You won't talk to me about yourself! That screams 'Hi, I'm Greg, and I don't want anything that could even possibly lead to a relationship.'"
    "Maybe I don't want to tell you because I don't think you're ready to hear it. Maybe I'm worried that if you hear it now you're the one who won't give me a chance, did you ever think about that?"
    "Well that's just insulting. You're making it sound like I'm some sort of sleazy, judgmental type." She throws her right hand out to emphasize "sleazy," and the blanket nearly falls off. She quickly grasps it, feeling painfully naked in front of him even with the swaddling benefit of the blanket.

    Disappointmentville: Black Ties and Lullabies by Jane Graves

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 561 KB | Release Date: July 2011 | Publisher: Forever

    "Black Ties and Lullabies" by Jane Graves

    My Book Summary : Bernadette (Bernie) has been Jeremy's bodyguard for the past 3 years, watching him pick up one blond bimbo after another, dealing with his casual attitude, flirty demeanor, and his ruthless business sense for way to long. So, after one attempt on his life that Jeremy doesn't take seriously (by her warnings before it happens) she takes her frustrations out on him right after she tells him that she quits. Well that just spikes Jeremy's frustrations too, since no one walks away from him without his say so. And it all leads to a powerful erotic encounter that neither of them expected, but right afterwards Bernie still walks away from him.

    After weeks of calling Bernie's boss to get her to come back to work for him (even after offering more money) and getting turned down over and over, Jeremy is surprised to walk into his office and see Bernie there waiting for him with an unexpected surprise of her own ......... she's pregnant! She expects him to hand over all of his rights to the baby, as she believes she and the baby would cramp his style and he wouldn't want anything to do with them. Now Jeremy plans on doing anything in his power to prove to her how wrong she is....

    My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. A sweet story about what love and family means to those who believe they would never have that for themselves. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes romance books about a couple who ordinarily you would not think they would work out together but in someways they are perfect together.

    The reason I gave this book such a low rating was because even though I liked the main characters, I got really annoyed with how Bernie really doesn't try to put any effort in asking Jeremy to help her out. I mean some things I understood but even after he proves himself a little bit she still keeps him out of her life and any/all things to do with setting up the place for the baby. I mean it's like she never got a clue. Or even gave Jeremy a shot in seeing where things could be. Very annoying.

    What saved this book from getting an even lower score was the last three chapters were GREAT!! I loved how this book turned out.

    Another thing I did LOVE about this book was the banter between the main characters! ♥

    Book Teaser(s) :
    "What the hell do you think you're doing?" she said.
    "Nothing you haven't been asking me to do."
    "Asking you to do? Are you out of your freakin' mind?"
    "If I am," he said breathlessly, "then stop me."
    He smothered her lips with another kiss. He moved forward, one step, then another, until he'd backed her against the wall. She made a halfhearted move to shudder away, but he held on, kissing her until the room spun around her.
    Stop him, stop him, stop him...
    The words swirled around in her mind but never took hold. ~ within Chapter 3
    "I can't believe this," he said, dropping the sack on the floorboard. "You laid a guilt trip on me for making you miss your date with a man who doesn't even exist?"
    "But you didn't know he didn't exist!"
    "That's not the point. You're the one who started all this by lying to me in the first place!"
    "And you would have never known I lied if you hadn't tried to get in the middle of things!"
    "Your fictitious boyfriend was obviously for my benefit," Jeremy said, "so what were you trying to do? Make me jealous?"
    "If I was trying to make you jealous, then why did I tell you I thought Madeline was perfect for you? Wouldn't I want you not to leave with her?" ~ within Chapter 19

  • Today's "Waiting On" Wednesday by Jill - click here

  • "Drink Deep" [Chicagoland Vampires Series, Book 5] by Chloe Neill
    Publication Released Date: November 1, 2011

    Author's Book Description:
      Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can't tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven't been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.

      That's when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.

      Chicago's mayor insists it's nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She'll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who's behind this, and stop them before it's too late for vampires and humans alike.

    I am ADDICTED to this series and Merit ever since I read the first novel ("Some Girls Bite") about 7 months ago when I still was pregnant. Especially after what happen to Ethan in the last book (link to the review below) I'm really curious as to see what will happen next!! =0)
