I could see that they immediately recognized my last name. Right now I didn’t care what they were thinking, I just wanted Isla to wake up and to hold her.

“Okay Mr Montgomery, you may stay. Could you go and stand over there please,” the Doctor pointed towards the end of Isla’s bed. “You can still see her; we just need some space to do some small tests.”

Walking down where he’d pointed I watched as they took her blood pressure and pulse. Just as they were writing down the information her eyes started to flutter and slowly opened, looked around and then stopped on me. I couldn’t wait anymore and walked around to where the Doctor had been standing before he went to look at some of the monitors attached to her.

“Angel,” I bent over and kissed her forehead, inhaling the smell that was just Isla. God it felt so good to be close to her again, even the pain in my leg didn’t feel as bad around her.

I was so busy with my thoughts that I never saw the hand coming up towards my face until it slapped me harder than I thought her little hand could.

REVIEWS!

Forever Mine (Book 1) Review:


So, while I enjoyed the plot and characters of this book I had issues with the flow.  Maya moves to the town where her uncle and cousins live in order to get away from a stalkerish ex boyfriend.  She didn’t expect to meet somebody new until she gets a job decorating all the houses on a ranch.  On the ranch she meets Ren and falls hard for him.  Ren has been a playboy his entire life but when he meets Maya he figures out he doesn’t want that life anymore, he wants Maya and only Maya.  You have crazy protective cousins, gay best friends, and tons of new friends.  This book is full of great characters, fun laughs and so many twists.

As I said before the characters are great, dynamic and well rounded.  The plot was good as was the pace.  However, like I said, I had issues with the flow.  You would be going through a chapter and it would switch characters POV part way through or it would throw in a new characters POV within the chapter, usually Luke or Isla’s POV.  I felt like it switched POV’s just as things were getting good and move onto another characters story.  It was kind of annoying.

I do look forward to reading book two soon because I absolutely want to know these characters more.  The ending was great.  However, because of my issues with the flow this book only gets 4 stars!


More Than Forever (Book 2) Review:

I enjoyed this book but I just didn’t love it.  The characters are good, the plot is interesting, but the flow of the book was way too choppy for me.  There were just too many shifts between characters in short periods of time.  The constant switches between characters screwed with the flow and the pace.  I had the same issue with the first book.  It made me feel like I was missing key pieces of information.  It’s almost like there was too much going on and not enough time for the characters to talk about it.
 
Again it is a good general idea.  It needs spaced out and slowed down.  It needs to be less choppy but not including so many different points of view.  The characters need more time to tell their story so they aren’t rushed.  I kept having to go back to the last heading to figure out who was talking at that time.  I did enjoy the plot so I would consider reading more by this author, this series however was not for me.
 
3.5 stars!



I've always been an avid reader and writer, so when my best friends (three males who drive me closer to insanity daily) dared me to publish, in fact triple dared with no returnseys, I couldn't say no - the forefits are always painful. Deciding to shelve all of the work I'd ever done and to and to start with a new project was my best idea though, at least I think so. After being on the brink of insanity many times, I'm delighted to confirm that I came out of it with my dignity still intact.....just!

I'm the daughter of diplomats who has lived all over the world and you'd be hard placed to figure out where my accent is from - it's a Heinz 57 variety accent. My poor child has also picked up my accent and vocabulary, which is predominantly American I guess.

My projects so far include a contemporary romance series called the Providence Series and its subseries called Amity, an MC series that I'm excited about called Luthers Vengeance and also a paranormal series that I'm still planning out.

For now, though, it's all about the romance……

The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle Review...


How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favour.

But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

~~~~****~~~~****~~~~

REVIEW!

Rick Riordan has struck again with this series that follows Apollo as he becomes mortal.  He finds his way to his children and Percy Jackson at Camp Half Blood.  He doesn't have any powers and he can barely use his skills, but he has to save the campers who keep disappearing into the forest surrounding camp.  Can he save them without the help of Percy or his children?  What will happen if he doesn't?

Action, thrills and craziness ensue as normal in this enticing and intriguing book.  I absolutely have no words to describe how much I have enjoyed this book.  At the point of this review I have read it at least three times and it gets better each time I read it.  Rick has this enticing way of writing a book that pulls you in and you can't stop reading.  I have read almost all of his books (haven't made it through the Heroes of Olympus series yet) and each series gets better and better.  I love that he incorporates Percy and/or Annabeth in almost all of the series he writes.

I can't explain how much I love this author and his books.  I feel like each review I write for a Riordan book is exactly the same at this point.  If you are looking for a good mythological book then pick up a Rick Riordan book.  Sure they are middle grade books but at 32 years old I fall in love with each new book he writes.  He is an author for all ages.

Thank you for bringing such amazing and fun myths to life in these well crafted books.

5 outstanding stars!

Say It Louder...

rdl-ban

One band. Five love stories. Too many secrets.

We’ve been waiting a long time to find out how the band Tattoo Thief will deal with drummer Dave’s toxic ex—and the secrets she’s been collecting on everyone. It was worth the wait.

You don’t have to be a fan of the series to love a book that starts fast with a huge wow moment and then unpacks the band’s secrets. In fact, you don’t have to read the earlier books because each book is a different love story about a different member of the band.

About Say it Louder:

say-it-louder
I had a choice—dump my toxic girlfriend, or break up my band.

It should have been easy. But she’s been collecting dirt on all of us for years.

Just when I think I’ve hit rock bottom, a pink-haired street artist rocks my world. They call Willa “the Parking Lot Picasso.” I call her my refuge, my center, my last reason to hope.

When Willa’s life on the streets collides with a sudden spotlight on her art, I’ll stop at nothing to protect her. But when the spotlight turns on my secret shame, she might be my only salvation.

Quiet noises in Willa’s apartment wake me hours later. Soft footfalls. The rustling of fabric and clink of metal. I open my eyes to the dim city light that filters through Willa’s curtainless windows.

She’s a shadow across the room.

I stir and her head snaps up, eyes glinting. Her shoulders stiffen, as if I’ve caught her doing something wrong.

I sit up. She’s swapped her jeans for black leggings and her T-shirt for a long-sleeved dark shirt. Her black messenger bag bulges on her hip.

“Where are you going?”

“Out.” She moves to a shelf and stuffs something in the messenger bag.

“You look like you’re going to break in somewhere.”

She tilts up her chin, a challenge. “Maybe I am.”

I’m on my feet in an instant, moving between her and the door. “What? You can’t just go out and wander the streets and break in places.”

She huffs, her eyes hardening when I block her exit. “I can do anything I want. You wanted a place to stay. So stay. But don’t tell me what I can or can’t do.”

Willa moves to get around me but I shift to the side, and suddenly we’re chest to chest. Another staredown.

This time, our faces are inches apart. Our staring contest crackles with the electricity of our physical touch.

“Move,” she whispers.

My lips curl into a faint smile. “No.”

Willa scowls and shoves her body closer to the door, closer to me. I rest my hand lightly on her hip, so as she moves, I move. Like we’re dancing.

Her fist clenches the material of my dark gray shirt. “I said, move.”

Her demand is a hiss and I smell her breath, sweet and hot, cinnamon and clove. My eyes drop to her lips, and I want my mouth there. I need to taste her.

Her eyes darken, pupils dilating as I tip my chin slightly, moving closer. But before I can connect with that ripe mouth, she shoves my chest—hard.

“Wrong move, Dave.” She spins and grabs the door handle and she’s down a flight of stairs before I can pick my jaw up off the floor, shove my feet in my shoes, and follow her.

I don’t know why I follow, I just do. Acting on instinct, rather than from the million calculations that usually drive me.

Normally, I think with my head. I weigh the logic in any situation. But Willa defies logic. She’s like a force of nature, thunder and lightning, impossible to control.

I race after her, down four flights, hustling to catch up as she pushes out of her building and onto the sidewalk.

“Willa. Would you wait up for me?”

She flings a glance over her shoulder. “This can’t wait.” She doesn’t slow down, but she doesn’t speed up, either.

“What are you doing—really?” I hustle after her and pull my phone from my pocket to check the time. 1:18 a.m. Unless she’s going bar-hopping, there aren’t a lot of legal activities available right now.

Willa snatches the phone from my hand, and that jolt of electricity is back. She powers off my phone without asking. “First rule: keep up. Second rule: put this away. If it lights up or rings at the wrong time, we’re screwed.”

She hands the phone back and I pocket it. “What’s the third rule?”

“Do what I tell you, ask questions later.”

Synopsis


Kade Wright is an expert in rocking any woman's world.

Sexy, rich, and the type you don’t bring home to meet your mother, he has broken more hearts than he can remember, and there is no end in sight. Until one mistake lands him in boiling hot waters. When his company orders him to the LOVE ADDICTS ANONYMOUS Rehab Center, he better get his affairs in order or else he loses his seat on the company board.

Love isn’t supposed to be addictive. But for Vicky Sullivan it is.

A true romantic at heart, she comes with a bit of a stalking tendency, and is completely not adverse to commitment. But who’s Kade to judge? As someone who’s seeking commitment and afraid of never finding love, she’s the type of woman he wouldn’t usually hit on. Except, she’s hot and keeps avoiding him…yes, even after seeing his private parts naked in all their glory.

Kade isn’t known as the tall, dark and ruthless businessman for no reason. Romance isn’t in the air, more like wild between the sheets action with no expectations. Vicky’s convinced she can resist, but Kade has other plans for her.

Can Vicky stay away from the one man who seems so easy to get and so hard to keep?

A novel you don't want your nan to read! Told from alternate point of view, this novel will have you blushing hard and laugh out hard.

Crazy Maybe Review...


Andi Stone is a strong, smart and independent woman, thanks to the help of a famous boxing trainer, Mack, and his protégé, Shane, who have respectively been like a father and brother to her. But that wasn't always the case. Andi never knew what a “normal” life was like. Having been raised in foster care from the age of six after the death of her parents, Andi became emancipated at 16 after an especially horrible incident forced her into a psychiatric hospital. 

Luke Woods, the family black sheep and street-brawler, is determined to be a successful professional boxer despite his family’s protests. He needs Andi’s help to get there. The wedge between him and his family over his past relationship issues and career choices is not easily overcome. Luke must learn to face the past mistakes, fears and demons that constantly plague him.

Fireworks and passions quickly ignite between Andi and Luke in the midst of the chaos that surrounds and threatens them. She never revealed the secrets and lies that have plagued her, but when she publicly inherits her family fortune, the living, breathing past comes back to torment her and threaten all that she holds dear. For the first time in her life, Andi must learn to rely on someone else to love and protect her or risk losing the man she loves. 

Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes it’s all you need.

~~~~****~~~~****~~~~

REVIEW!

Andi was raised in the foster care system but when her foster family decides that she is dangerous to their lifestyle they have her committed.  She grows up to take over her parents company and stays to herself, until she meets Luke.  Luke is the black sheep of his family until Andi comes into his life.  Andi and Luke need each other but when the truth comes out will that be the end of a beautiful beginning?

This was the first book I have read by A. D. Justice and I am in love with it.  I honestly cannot wait to move onto the next book, which I have sitting in my TBR pile.  This book is like nothing I have ever read before.  I went in blind like I normally do (I hate knowing exactly what a book is about before picking it up) and fell in love quickly.

The characters are intense, unique and well written.  The plot was insane but fun.  The pace and flow had moments where they didn't work as well with the story as well.  That being said the book was one of the most intense book I have read in a long time.  There was so much angst, energy and well a slew of other emotions happening in this book.  

I loved absolutely every second of this book and couldn't put it down.  Again I can't wait to continue this series.

5 stars!
