Hero by Samantha Young – Review!

23355069

The emotional and unforgettable new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.

Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that she and her mother weren’t his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets,. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.

Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.

Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they’re on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again…

Court’s $0.02:

Where oh where do I start off this review.  I had to wait a few days to even gather my thoughts on this book.
I am not going to give you a rundown of the book – you read the syonopsis so you know what it’s about.
However – I will give you this:
“For some reason it didn’t just feel like I was taking off a dress.  It felt like I was letting him see me naked.  And there was a difference.”
Alexa is woman who will not allow her past to dictate her future.  And she will not allow someone who was affected by her pass, affect her present.  She’s a strong-minded, opinionated woman who faces any obstacle head on – whether that obstacle be a man or not.
Caine has worked extremely hard to get where he is at in the world – one of the most prestigious and wealthiest bachelors.
Alexa knows what she is getting into when she is hired to work for Caine.  And she doesn’t allow him to scare her off.  If anything, she throw him off kilter with her smart-ass comments and taking no priosoners attitude.
“I’m not stopping until we’ve had each other in every way we can.”
The chemistry between them is off the charts.  But sometimes people can not see past others history to allow them to see what’s right in front of them.
Samantha Young has written this story so perfectly.  The banter, not just between Alexa and Caine, but along with the other secondary characters is just unbelievable.  I found myself laughing at the whitty come backs and wise crack remarks by each of them.  But I also found myself loathing Caine at times because he had his head stuck too far up his ass.
All details of events they attend including what they were wearing, whre they were, they all played perfectly into the whole picture.  You can easily picture what’s going on around them and feel like you are watching a movie play out before you.
Another highly recommended book from Samantha Young.

Thicker Than Blood by Madeline Sheehan and Claire C. Riley – Review!

10754834_10205320148704901_502287080_n

A true friendship never dies.

 

Leisel and Evelyn lost everything. Husbands. Families. Friends. Lives that made sense. All they had left was each other, and a friendship that could withstand anything…

Even an apocalypse.

Until one fateful night, the marginal safety they’d come to rely on comes to a vicious and brutal end. With the help of Alex & Jami, both unlikely allies, Leisel and Evelyn are able to escape their shattered sanctuary only to find themselves face-to-face with a much altered, much crueler life where they have to find the way—and the will—to stay alive in a world they no longer recognize.

Traveling across a broken and infection-ridden country; the road-weary group are pitted against endless violence, improbable circumstances, and the ultimate loss.
Everything comes at a price—especially safety, the cost of which could very well strip them of the one thing they’ve tried so hard to cling to: their humanity.

Yet along with all the trials they’re forced to endure, there’s also hope in the form of love. Having loved Leisel from afar, Alex attempts to put the pieces of her fractured heart back together.

But in such a savage world, is there room for love?

In a place of nightmares-made-reality, where the living should be feared far more than the dead, an unbreakable friendship and a love amongst all odds can mean the difference between life and death.

There are friends…

And then there are Leisel and Evelyn.

ellie’s $0.02:

This gripping, horrific tale (wait… the story line is horrific.  Not the story, but you know the STORY… you know what I mean) spun by two amazing authors.  A few months ago (pre-apocalyptic), Madeline messaged me (because if you know her, you know she never makes phone calls) and was like “dude, ellie.  I’m co-authoring this book.  Whaddya think?”  Fast forward to present day (post-apocalyptic) and reading and re-reading through their revisions, idea changes, chatting with Claire and boom… we have the final version of Thicker Than Blood.

And know what?  Madeline was so fucking pissed at me that I didn’t give her feedback until this review.  Not a damn word I gave her.  Guess what Madeline and Claire?  I god damn love the book.  LOVE.  IT.   If I hated it, I wouldn’t have let you release it.  Duh.  Not that you would have listened to me.  I couldn’t be more thrilled with what these two ladies did and the child they birthed together.

SO the end result we have here is a freaky book of horror, but yet encompassing a tale of undying friendship (and undying zombies).  These two seamlessly knit together their writing into a flawless, AMAZINGLY well told story of Leisel and Evelyn… and zombies.

  Each time I read this book (yeah, it’s been a few times, remember I said there were ideas and thoughts bounced around) I was gripped and still glued to the damn thing.  Each time it was just as scary (I mean SHIT… zombies and end-of-the-world biz is freaky as fuck), yet just as heart-warming – – you know, the friendship stuff.

Honestly.  Even if you aren’t into horror or zombies or apocalypses… I swear, you will fucking love this book.  It’s impossible not to.

I promised no spoilers… but I will tell you this… There is no zombie fucking in this one.

Court’s $0.02:

Thicker Than Blood is a nail-biting, page-turning amazingly horrific tale of two women and their undying commitment to each other and their friendship. When the world they once knew is completely destroyed and they are thrown into world of death, Leisel and Evelyn will astound you with their unyielding determination to survive together no matter what. Sheehan and Riley will captivate you as they suck you into a post-apocalyptic world that will plague your thoughts forever.

That pretty much sums up this book without giving anything away.

What else could I say to make my review even close to worthy of this book!?!?

Lei and Eve are two strong-willed woman in their own ways.  They go through shit that it just jaw-dropping shocking.  And unfortunately, they don’t come out unscathed either.  But they become even stronger, if that were possible.  Their bond just grows.

This book is not for the faint of heart.  This is not a romance in any way – so do not expect any mushy shit.  It is a post-apocalyptic story written in raw, dirty and unforgiving words.

Madeline and Claire are a force to be reckon with in writing together on this genre. They hit the nail straight on the head. The whole story flows with just the perfect amount of detail and truly makes you feel like this is how our world could end.

Four Days by Dannika Dark – Review!

Four Days
(Seven Series, Book #4)
By Dannika Dark

 

Blurb:
Ivy believes every life must have balance, and during the past year, she’s found harmony living with the Weston pack. When an evil spirit from her past threatens her wolf, it sets off a chain reaction of events that alters the course of her destiny.
Lorenzo Church is a powerful, wealthy Packmaster who rules his pack through intimidation and order. He has vowed to never love a woman because love can destroy an empire. But chaos is fast approaching in the form of a Shifter named Ivy—a Native American, like him, who has invaded his dreams since the moment they met. She is spirited, wise, and unattainable.
In an unexpected turn of events, Ivy must choose whether or not to let go of the one person she has always loved. Lorenzo discovers the root of her courage but will never win her as his mate unless he learns to listen to his heart.
Court’s $0.02:
Dannika has outdone herself once again.   This series just gets better and better.
Ivy is very sweet and loving woman.  Her strength and and selflessness is what draws so many people to her.  She just has the aura about her.  And yet, you would never know what lingers behind the walls she has built around her.
Lorenzo is a huge pompous ass.  He rules with an iron fist and doesn’t care for love – it weakens men.  But his journey through this book is amazing.  Yes, even a harden man can have a soul.
Lorenzo and Ivy are brought together by an accident.  You can sense the hesitation in each of them.  They feel something there but won’t act on it for very many reasons.
I absolutely love how Dannika is able to make these characters come to life. As you are reading, you become these two characters. You feel their emotions – hatred, anger, compassion, love.
Dannika once again writes a story that is filled with drama and gut-wrenching honesty that just sucks you in completely.
If you haven’t already – start reading this series!

Excerpt

 

It was the longest
and shortest day and night of my life—one that was pressed in my memory like a
rose in a book. He said he’d never allowed a woman to stay the whole night, and
he definitely didn’t hold a woman as she slept. I also got the feeling he’d
never shown this side of himself to anyone—drawing more than just pleasure from
intimacy, but emotional comfort as well.
“Will you cuddle me
while I sleep?” I asked when he stood naked before me, drinking a bottle of
water.
“I’m one of the most
respected Packmasters in the territory. I’ve killed men for disloyalty, and
those who follow me do so out of fear. I don’t cuddle,” was all he said.
So my Thunder Wolf
crossed his arms and lay on his back, watching me in the mirror above the bed
as I rolled on my side and went to sleep. When my breathing became heavy and he
thought I’d drifted off, he scooted close behind me and nuzzled his face
against the nape of my neck. I took more pleasure in those secret gestures than
when he kissed me while awake. I’d always known that the way a man treats a
woman when no one is watching showed his true colors, but I’d never given it
thought beyond that. There is something pure and honest in the way a man treats
a woman when he thinks she isn’t aware. It shows the kind of man he truly is.
Now I knew with
absolute certainty that despite his stony presence and arrogant superiority, he
possessed a compassionate heart. Lorenzo Church was a man with two sides to his
life, like a coin.

 

One I wished I could
keep in my pocket.

 

The Seven Series


About the Author
This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here’s what I can tell you:  I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I’m a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70’s to a military dad who moved us around the world.
When I’m not writing (which is all the time), I’m hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don’t like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I’m not sure which).
Throughout my life, I’ve had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my “head stories” that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down – creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.
It’s almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics.
Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I’m a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years.
I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I’ve had a few people ask), but I think it’s wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.
I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don’t like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.
But it’s what I love to do.

ellie’s $0.02:

So yeah.  This book rocked my world.  I was contacted to see if I wanted an ARC of Never Never and I said, “um, lemme think… FUCK.  YEAH.”

Dude.  When you finally get around to buying this book (I mean, like, yesterday)… set time aside because I guarantee you will not be able to put it down.  Thank goodness for Lifeproof letting me take my phone into the shower.  I couldn’t even shower without Charlie and Silas.

Anyway.  You think the synopsis is mysterious?  Wait until you pick up this book.  These two have twisted up something amazing, mysterious, intriguing… and yeah, even a little romantic….   The writing styles, the characters, the plot… it all took over my life.  Literally.

I finished this book a few days ago and these characters… Charlie and Silas have taken up permanent residence in my head.  I feel like a damn crack whore and want more.  Just more.

Bottomline?  Colleen and Tarryn do not disappoint.

Cover JacketRBK Book Cover Final (11.89 x 8.5) Synopsis Her name is Emery Shaw…Emily Sanders…Emma Simpson…Ericka Smith.
Her family was well off, she ran. They looked for her, she hid. They found her, she ran again. Tragedy strikes, she gets even.
The fact is, she doesn’t know who she is, she tried to run, to hide and make a life for herself, but that backfired. No one knows her except her best friend Rachel, if that’s even an adequate word for what they are to each other. Rachel helps her build a life for herself below the radar, which is fine until the unthinkable happens knocking Em out of her unfeeling cocoon. When her house of cards comes tumbling down she runs again, until the one person who can change her mind finds her.
Due to adult situations, language and possible scenarios that may be difficult for some readers to handle, take a breath before you start this one. It’s gritty and not pretty. Nothing is pretty here. Whiskey is a good thing.

A few years ago she began writing the By A Thread series, which is out now. Her goal is to keep readers on their toes, whether it’s the plot twist or the book itself, her books are outside any box.
