Review for Bulletproof by Mary Calmes

Bulletproof (A Matter of Time #5)Bulletproof by Mary Calmes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I love this entire book series. Actually, I stared reading the series with book 3 and I went back to reading the first ones and I was hooked.

I squeed when I saw the upcoming release and the frist thing I did this morning, right after getting out of bed, was get my dowload.

And I waited all day to read it and I LOVED IT! I love Jory. He bounces from one thing to the next, totally adorable and clueless at the same time and I just want to bundle him up and cuddle him into submission.

The story line is engaging as always, new characters are introduced and nothing is ever as it seems. She has a real talent for taking the reader on a ride and not giving anything away while the rollercoaster starts up.

To say I would recommend this book would be an understatment. I love the entire series. There can't be enough and I hope there will be more in the future. But if there isn't, I just settle for reading and reading this over and over again. :)

Love For Hire - upcoming ebook


Love For Hire is part of a longer series which is called Family Business. Each story is self contained with an underlying theme running through the books.

This book will be available on 19 October through Dreamspinner Press (more info: www.annamariemay.com).

Summary:

Hustler and art aficionado Jayden Collins doesn't expect much out of life, so when rich playboy Matt Archer not only saves his life but offers to pay him to pretend to be his boyfriend, it seems too good to be true. The guarded, cautious Jayden takes him up on the offer, but he never expects to fall in love with his snobbish, inconsiderate client.

Jayden doesn't have much time to think about it, though, because his life is in danger—apparently someone is trying to kill him. Or so he thinks until he discovers Matt's secret. Furious to learn of his employer's deceit, Jayden leaves Matt, breaking his own heart in the process. But Matt is used to getting what he wants... and he's not going to let go so easily.

Review for Salad On The Side

Salad on the SideSalad on the Side by Karenna Colcroft

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I like the idea behind this storyline.

SPOILERS AHEAD - Please stop reading now unless you want to be spoiled

I really like Kyle in this story and how he became a shifter. There no rules on how packs are supposed to behave. Every writer makes up her or his own world. In this case here, I have to strongly disagree with some view points.

The Alpha can use mind control to control his members. If someone is challenged and he refuses, he can be killed. Pack members cannot have a will of their own, they can be compelled by the Alpha even against their wishes. Women are valued as less than men. Overall I find these views a very old fashioned and not in a good sense. Like when back when women were cattle and were not allowed to have a mind of their own.

In a modern book about shifters I found this part of universe off putting because it cut to close to personal hick ups of mind.

Also, Kyle, the lead character, faking to go along wtih being controlled to give the Alpha the illusion of power I find apprehensive. I understand the logic behind it but don't much like how it played out. Again, these are my own personal issues here coming out to play.

I have heared of many good books which deal with certain topis like slavery, mind control etc which I have refused to read becaues I know I would only get upsed. Again, this isn't anything negative about the book just my own personal likes and dislikes. I am stressing this here because I don't want there to be any missunderstanding about what I said before. What I talked about here, were things that put me off for personal reasons.

The characters were very well fleshed out, the sex scenes were more than hot and the 1st POV is one of the toughest choices to tell a story and yet, it was done excellently here. I really got to live as Kyle, see through his eyes, feel what he felt. That takes more than just a little bit of talent.

If my hick ups aren't yours, then by all means, I can only recommend this book. :)

Review for Bite Me If You Can by Lynsay Sands

Bite Me If You Can (Argeneau, #6)Bite Me If You Can by Lynsay Sands

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I think this little bit taken from the book says it all:

"Are you talking to my penis?" Lucien asked.
"It talked to me first," she said defensively, and frowned. "You didn't mention this little skill..."

Well, there is more after that and the entire book is quite hilarious. Maybe this little bit won't strike you as funny but believe me, it is.

When it comes to Lynsay Sands I put her books into two categories: funny and hilarious...I haven't picked up a single book yet that I didn't enjoy.

2011 Ireland/UK weather forcast

Taken from this POST.

NOOOOO!!!


(Image from taken HERE.)


Snowfall expected in parts as early as October.



Coupled with other in depth factors such as recent volcanic activity and changes to the Gulf Stream/North Atlantic drift that we consider, this does not bode well for the severity of the UK and Northern European winter of 2011-12. Frequent and prolonged cold spells with heavy dumps of snow from blizzard like conditions is likely across many parts of the UK. The areas we expect to be worse hit throughout include the vast majority of Scotland and the Scottish Highlands, Northern England, and Northern Ireland. We have particular concerns as to the huge implications that this may pose to the infrastructure of the UK and Ireland transportation systems/economy.

Review for I Only Play One On TV

I Just Play One On TVI Just Play One On TV by A.L. Turner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I was hooked from the first moment.

SPOILERS AHEAD, please stop reading now if you want to avoid them!

Vince was so adorable, I kind of fell for him from the start and his romance with Alex was felt so real it made me smile and cry at the same time.

There came a moment in the book though where I wished the story line would've gone down a different path. The way it was written was perfect, very realistic and how everything would've probably played out in the real world.

The romantic in me though wanted Vince not to be cut from the show or even if this happened, for them to come back, begging him to come back. This is my hand up, my own need (for some reason) to always see wrongs put right.

Now having said that, the book is perfect. I would normally not say this but apart from my own need for 'revenege' (LOL) this was one of the most enjoyable reads I've had the pleasure to stumble across in a long time. I just spent hours on a lazy Saturday reading this book instead of editing my own and I am not regretting it one bit.

Loved it, with all my heart!
