Atlantis Rising

Title- Atlantis Rising

Release Date- January 6th, 2015

Book Summery:

I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid.

Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…

My Review:

“My time in foster care had taught me the heartache of losing someone I loved. With all the other uncertainties in my life I just couldn’t go down that road”

I thought Atlantis Rising was a very intriguing idea; it took me a little time to get into the story. After I figured out what was going on I could not put the book down. I wanted to know more of what was going on in Alison’s life but also her species as a whole. I always like to look for character development while reading and I defiantly saw some in with in Alison and her friends.

I also liked that I was wrong about some things in the story and didn’t see some of the twists; I was surprised about whom the mole in the story was and I was wrong about Connor, Alison’s lab partner.

Ms. Craw did a great job in writing a story that engaged me until the very end and I truly hope there is another book in the series. I would love to see what is in store for Alison and her friends next!!!

Book Summery

Welcome to The Wellesley-Crawford…

Hannah Wellesley has spent her entire life running the halls of her family-owned hotel, the infamous and opulent Wellesley-Crawford. Noted as one of the city’s richest, most luxurious hotels in Chicago, the WC is what Hannah has devoted her life and career to.

The hotel’s Annual Masquerade Gala is the event of the year, but this year Hannah’s evening involves more than just handing out masks. After a mysterious rendezvous in a secluded stairwell with an irresistible and unidentifiable man, Hannah becomes consumed with discovering the identity of her masked lover. Just as she’s about to give up the search, two men blow back into her life with drastically different intentions. They both have secrets and uncovering them will lead Hannah down a darkly dangerous path.

Drawn to both of the intriguing bachelors, she’ll have to determine which one is after her heart and which one plans to do her deadly harm before it’s too late.

EXCERPT

I scanned the room as I walked through the door. Checked my watch, four minutes after ten. No sign of Carter yet. I knew the restaurant shut down at nine-thirty that night. He probably wasn’t done closing the kitchen down. I made my way over to an empty barstool and sat down.
“Hey, Hannah!” Myles, my favorite bartender, shouted over the music coming from the in-house deejay. “What can I getcha?”

“Hi, Myles,” I smiled. “I’ll think I’ll have a rum and diet tonight.”

He quickly went to work mixing up my drink. Myles was probably the nicest guy who worked at the hotel. He was average height and build. His hipster style suited him so well. Tonight he was wearing a pair of straight-legged black jeans, a pair of black converse tennis shoes, a vintage AC/DC T-shirt with his signature thick-framed black glasses. His thick, brown hair was styled in his just-got-out-of-bed way, which could be described as perfected chaos. He placed my drink down in front of me and started wiping down the bar with the towel he had tossed over his shoulder. “Want me to run this on your tab?”

Before I could answer, a twenty-dollar bill appeared next to I drink. “I’ve got it.”

I assumed it was Carter, but was surprised when I looked over my shoulder to see Trent standing there.

“Sure thing, Mr. Crawford.” Myles took the cash and made his way towards the cash register.

“I can buy my own drink,” I interjected, placing my clutch on the top of the bar. “Here Myles,” I started to hand him my own twenty-dollar bill, when Trent held up his hand.

“I know you that you can afford your own drinks, Hannah,” he said waving Myles off. “Keep the change. And call me Trent,” he said, as they exchanged courteous nods. He turned his attention back to me. “Consider this a peace offering.” He clinked his beer bottle against my glass.

“It’s going to take more than just a drink,” I scoffed, pulling my glass to my lips. After the way he’d embarrassed me in front of the board, he could have shown up with a truck load of Bacardi and I still would have been pissed.

“Sorry for being a dick today. That was not at all the way I wanted you to find out that I was interested in running the hotel.”

“It was a pretty shitty way for me to find out. You could have said something last night.”

“I know,” he agreed. “It’s just…my family has a really complicated way of doing things.”

“I’m well aware,” I reassured him. I may have been young when the drama with Damien happened, but I’d heard enough over the years that ‘easy’ and ‘breezy’ were not words that were often associated with the Crawford name. “What I’d really like to know is why you have a sudden interest in running this hotel at all? You haven’t been here for years.”

About Elizabeth Lee:

Displaying Elizabeth Lee.jpg

Born and raised in the middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe.

Although this journey began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany… I should write a book. And I did it!

If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them.

Mad Mondays: The Trouble with Bree by Kristen Strassel

The Trouble With Bree (A Spotlight Series Novella)

Title- The Trouble with Bree

Author- Kristen Strassel

Release Date- January 15th, 2015

Amazon- http://goo.gl/OoOQAb

BOOK SUMMERY:

The trouble with Bree is…

Bree Farrell is ready to turn her life around. A twenty-one-year-old mother of two, she’s not sure where to start. She could use a little help, but her string of horrible ex-boyfriends keep setting her back. First step: she’s swearing off men forever. Or at least until she gets back on her feet.

Josh Maxwell got a second chance at life, and now he wants to help kids who are in the same situation he was in. His new job as the coordinator at a preschool for underprivileged kids is the perfect place to do that.

On paper, the policy not to get involved with the families of the students makes perfect sense. But when Bree meets the new coordinator of her son’s school, she and Josh learn that some rules are made to be broken, no matter what the consequences.

BOOK REVIEW:

I loved so many things about The Trouble with Bree, which doesn’t surprise me since I love Kristen’s writing.

This was a very sweet story about a girl who always falls in love easy and always picks the wrong guy. That is until she meets the director at her son’s new preschool. How can you not fall in love with a man that will be there for not only you, but for your children as well? I know I fell in love with Josh by reading his interactions with Bree’s children!

One thing that I did not like about this book was that it was so short!!!! I could have seen/love to see this as a full novel, but if you need a quick read, I recommend it!

Author- Elle Kennedy

Publisher- Entangled Publishing

Book Summery:

No More Mr. Nice Guy…

The moment AJ Walsh sees the sexy, tattooed pixie walk up to his bar, it’s lust at first sight. He’s always been labeled
the “nice” guy―opening doors, buying flowers, and never, ever having one-night stands. But with this wicked little
angel with red lips and unfathomably dark eyes? Oh, yeah. Tonight, “nice” has nothing to do with it…

Brett Conlon is trying to convince her family that she’s put away her reckless wild girl side for good. Nothing―and
no one―could be better for her reputation than golden boy AJ Walsh. So they make a deal: if he plays The Good
Boyfriend for her family, he can be a very, very bad boy with her. Now their one naughty night is about to turn into a
whole lot of trouble…

Book Review:

One Night of Trouble was my least favorite of the After Hours Series, not to sure why, but I didn’t really feel a connection with the characters as I did with the first two. Yet this story did not fall short by any means and I still enjoyed it. Instead of the guy being the bad boy, this story made the girl the bad girl and the male the good guy. Although, there is a lot more to A.J than meets the eye.

Again this installment had enough smut in this book for people that enjoy it and a story line that makes you love every single character.

Book Excerpt:

AJ pulled a cell phone from his back pocket and glanced at the screen. “It’s

eleven fifty-eight. Looks like you’re about to turn into a pumpkin. Did you drive

here?”

She shook her head. “I’m calling a taxi.”

“Or…” His eyes gleamed recklessly.

Brett’s throat went dry. “Or?”

“Or I could drive you home.”

Uh-oh.

Big uh-oh.

The awareness that had sizzled between them earlier returned in full force,

leaving pinpricks of heat along her bare arms. The air was cool and she’d left her

coat inside, but she wasn’t cold. Not by a long shot.

She knew exactly what would happen if she let AJ drive her home. She might

have willpower when it came to alcohol, but around this man? With his sandy-
blond hair and chiseled features and sparkling green eyes? And that incredible

body? And throw in the fact that she hadn’t had sex in six months?

Willpower? Fat chance.

“What do you say, Brett? Do you want a ride?” No missing the way his voice

went husky at the word ride.

Oh boy. Oh boy oh boy oh boy.

This was not the AJ Walsh she remembered. Back then he’d come off as a

gentleman.

Right now there was nothing gentlemanly about him. His expression was

downright smoldering, broad body radiating pure sex appeal. If he took her

home, she knew it wouldn’t end with her walking up to her apartment alone.

But she still had to make sure she wasn’t misinterpreting that look on his face.

“What are you really asking me?” she said bluntly.

“I’m asking if I can take you home and screw your brains out.”

Her thighs clenched so hard she almost keeled over.

Okay, well, that certainly left nothing to interpretation.

“Judging by your response, I think you like the sound of that.” There was

something smugly male in his voice.

Hers was embarrassingly squeaky and as weak as her attempted ignorance.

“What response?”

He flashed a knowing smile. “What, you think I can’t tell when a woman is

attracted to me?”

Nope, this was not the AJ she remembered. The golden boy was gone, replaced

by a primal creature teeming with raw sexual energy. The electricity in the air

was liable to burn her alive.

“Y-you…” She swallowed hard. “You don’t seem like the kind of man who does

stuff like this. Sleeping with someone you’ve just met…”

“Why do women always take it upon themselves to decide what kind of man I

am?”

“Am I wrong?” she challenged.

After a beat, he gave a sheepish grin. “Fine. I haven’t had a lot of one-night

stands. But…” His eyes burned. “I have a feeling not going home with you tonight

would be the biggest mistake of my life.”

Sizzling Saturdays: One night of Scandal by Elle Kennedy

One Night of Scandal (After Hours, #2)

Title- One Night of Scandal (

Author- Elle Kennedy

Publisher- Entangled Publishing

Amazon- http://goo.gl/wPFy2o

BOOK SUMMERY:

The wrong man never felt so right…

Ex-fighter Reed Miller has been secretly lusting over his best friend’s girl for months, but he refuses to jeopardize a friendship over a woman—especially one who doesn’t like him all that much. Now that Darcy’s on the market again, it’s even more imperative to stick to his strict hands-off policy. But the sizzling attraction between them is too powerful to ignore, and once he’s had a taste of her…all bets are off.

Darcy Grant is tired of walking the straight and narrow path. She’s on the hunt for passion, and there’s no denying Reed is just the man to give it to her. Although she has no interest in dating a bad boy, and certainly not her ex’s best friend, it’s impossible not to melt beneath Reed’s skillful touch. Now it’s just a matter of setting a few ground rules—and hoping her rule-breaking, sweet-talking bad boy agrees to follow them. But if she lets Reed into her bed, does she stand a chance of keeping him out of her heart?

BOOK REVIEW:

One Night of Scandal is the second installment in the After Hours series, but this time we learn a little more about bad boy Reed and A. J’s girlfriend Darcy. I have to confess I might like Reed and Darcy’s story more than Gage and Skyler’s, and I adored them! I felt that there was something between Reed and Darcy in the first book, so it was really easy to feel their chemistry right off the bat in this book. I also think I related more to Darcy, she a teacher and some things she said were something I can see myself saying like, “How do I even phrase it? What does Ecstasy even come in? Hits? Pills? Fingers, you know like whiskey?”.

Again this installment had enough smut in this book for people that enjoy it and a story line that makes you love every single character. I can’t not wait to see what is in store for A.J next.

BOOK EXCERPT:

“Darcy, wait. Seriously. Come on, wait up.”

She kept up the brisk pace, ignoring Reed’s increasingly annoyed shouts from behind

her. Her heels snapped on the pavement in an angry click-clack as she barreled down

the sidewalk. She’d taken five more steps when a heavy hand clapped on her shoulder.

“Must you always be so damn difficult?” His aggravated rumble heated the back of her

neck.

Darcy twirled around to face him. “Dude, just go away.”

His lips twitched. “Can I at least apologize first, dude?”

“No.”

He grasped her arm before she could walk away. “What do you mean, no?”

“Should I say it in a different language so you can understand? Fine. Non. Nein. Niet.

Nej. Nai. Um—”

“Nai?”

“That’s Japanese,” she said haughtily. “Duh.”

“Do I even want to ask why you can say the word no in so many languages?”

She blew a strand of hair out of her eyes. “I’m a teacher, Reed. I know things.”

His deep chuckle sent an unexpected—and extremely unwelcome—shiver scurrying

through her. Before tonight, she’d never felt anything even close to warmth or

awareness toward this man, but somehow her system had shortcircuited, and now she

couldn’t stop staring at his mouth. His firm and surprisingly sensual mouth. And all that

dark stubble sweeping across his strong jaw… She wanted to run her fingertips over it

and feel those bristles scratching her skin.

No, you don’t.

Right. Of course she didn’t.

God, what on earth did the Krib’s bartenders put in their drinks? Those shooters were

obviously messing with her head.

One Night of Sin (After Hours, #1)

Title- One Night of Sin

Author- Elle Kennedy

Publisher- Entangled Publishing

Amazon- http://goo.gl/hNRINV

BOOK SUMMERY:

Sometimes it’s good to be bad…

When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

BOOK REVIEW:

Being that One Night of Sin is under 200 pages it was a quick read, but that doesn’t mean Ms. Kennedy didn’t make us fall in love with the book any less. There was enough smut in this book for people that enjoy it and a story line that makes you love every single character. I kind of like that there was no big drama in this story, Gage and his three best friends are owners of a new club called Sin, when he has a run in with a beautiful girl named Skyler, he can’t deny the attraction.

As characters I loved both Gage and Skyer! I like that Skyler was the good girl and Gage brought out the bad in her. Ms. Kennedy also allowed a little glimpse to the character that will be in the next books and I must say, I think that is something more going on with Reed than he likes to admit!!

BOOK EXCEPT:

He rummaged in his pocket for his e-cigarette, lifted his head—and froze.

His blue-eyed angel sat eight feet away. Slender body up on the wooden crate next to the staff

door, chestnut-brown hair falling over one shoulder, dress riding up her thighs to reveal long,

silky legs.

He sucked in a breath. Lord, she was even more appealing up close. Not beautiful in the

Hollywood sense, but intriguingly attractive in a very real way. The enormous blue eyes were

her best feature, and her mouth was just pouty enough to conjure up the image of plump lips

wrapped around his dick.

Gage cleared his throat. “You shouldn’t be out here.”

She jumped at the sound of his voice, head swiveling and gaze flying to his. She instantly

hopped off the crate, smoothing out the front of her dress as a frown creased her lips. “Why

not?”

“A pretty girl all alone in an alley at midnight—I don’t think it needs much more explanation than

that.” He inhaled a quick drag of the e-cigarette. The mint-flavored vapor was no substitute for a

real smoke, and he wasn’t sure why he even bothered with it.

“I just needed some air.” Her voice was huskier than he’d imagined it would be. Sexier. “I’ll go

back inside soon.”

Wait—she’d only come outside for air? And her date had been asking about prostitutes in her

absence? Wow. Real stand-up guy.

“It’s so crowded in there,” she added.

“Nightclubs usually are,” he said dryly.

“Yeah, I guess they are. I’m not much of a clubber, but Mick wouldn’t take no for an answer. He

said I haven’t lived until I’ve gone to Sin.” A sigh slipped out. “It’s our first date…”

Gage waited for her to continue. When she didn’t, he filled in the rest. “And you’re not at all into

him.”

“Why do you say that?”

His gaze slid back to hers, slow and purposeful. “Because if you were, you wouldn’t have been

eye-fucking me all night.”

Her breath hitched, cheeks growing the most appealing shade of pink.

He had to laugh. “Am I wrong?”

The denial he’d expected didn’t come. “No, you’re not wrong.”

Read Me Friday: You Can’t Always Get What You Want by Chelsey Krause

Can't Always Get What You Want

Title- You Can’t Always Get What You Want

Author- Chelsey Krause

Publisher- Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept

Release- January 13rd, 2015

Amazon- http://goo.gl/ca81xF

Book Summery:

Sophie Richards has been looking forward to a much-needed girls’ night out: a Rolling Stones tribute-band concert, a few drinks, a distraction from her grueling nursing shifts in acute care. But when her best friend bails, Sophie gets stuck with a blind date.

Although Brett Nicholson may be the hottest carpenter alive, and Sophie may technically be single, she isn’t exactly on the market. Six years ago she found The One. He was everything Sophie dreamed a man could be—and then she lost him. In an instant, her whole life changed, and she forgot all about happily ever after.

But as she gets to know Brett, Sophie starts to wonder about the future for the first time. With a broken heart still clouding her mind, jumping into a new relationship feels impossible. When she’s in his arms, walking away feels even harder. Now Sophie faces an impossible choice: living in the past or choosing love in the here and now.

Book Review:

 

“I turn toward the trail, and make a new path on my way out of the woods”

Every time I read the title to his book, I start singing the song, to my delight the book was named after the Rolling Stone’s song. To make it even better each chapter was named after other Rolling Stone’s songs.

Now to the story and the characters in this book, I loved it all!!! I saw so much of myself in Sophie, from dating a boy full of tattoos to losing him, just not in the same way. I even know of a Brett that has blue eyes and is as sweet as the Brett in this story, I think the fact that I was able to relate to this story so much made me like the story more than I would have if I didn’t.

I like that Chelsey Krause had flash backs within her story but I think they might have been a bit too long. I caught myself loving Sophie’s relationship with Bret so much, that I could wait for the story to go back to present day. I also felt as though there were enough scenes of Brett and Sophie together. Once the two became a couple there was a lot of, “weeks later”, “days later”. Do not get me wrong I loved all Sophie’s interactions with her family and friends, but maybe they were a bit long and could have been cut shorter to make more pages for the Brett/ Sophie relationship.

Sophie grew as a character in my eyes by putting behind the past and figuring out what she wanted in not only her personal but also her professional life. I would love to many see another book to see where she has ended up, even though this book ended in a way the reader will be completely satisfied.

Add to Goodreads

BOOK REVIEW:

What a great book, Tainted Energy had a very unique plot in my eyes. The story had me guessing from the very start. It was interesting reading POVs from two people of different dimensions, not to mention when one of them has no idea the other exists, but the other is longing for to be with her.

Once Lena was reunited with Tarek it was interesting to see them interact, the author did a great job having Tarek explain what was really going on with Lena or as much as he could say. It helped me as a reader understand what was really going on. The author also painted very vivid images with her descriptions, like mini elephants and a giant octopus full of vibrant color.

It was very interesting to see the struggle Lena faced with her life as she has always know to the life that she has just found out she is a part of. I mean she lived in a world where she and her mother and physically abused to finding out that she is a guide that never dies but changes energy cycle, kind of hard to wrap your head around if you were here. I thought that she was a extremely strong character as well, and her home life only made her stronger.

I would defiantly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys reading YA Science Fiction, I cannot wait to read more in this series and more from Lynn Vroman.

Book Review: Disturbingly Beautiful (A Paradox in Time #1) by J & L Wells

Published January 14, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog

Displaying DB.jpg

Title: Disturbingly Beautiful (A Paradox in Time #1)

Author: J & L Wells
Publication date: November 13th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Time-Travel

Amazon:  http://goo.gl/F8ssju

BOOK SUMMERY:

Could it really be possible that somewhere in time, the perfect paradox could be created? Does romance really stand a chance, could it ever flourish when cast between so many intricacies and broken lives? How could one person, Nell, a nineteenth century governess unknowingly cause so much devastation?

As Nell’s world opens up, we follow her on her complex journey, where she discovers love, loss and betrayal, and becomes forced to play a dangerous game from which there appears no escape.

An intricate family plot slowly begins to unravel in which she finds herself centre stage. She was never supposed to leave Haunchcroft estate … and he will do everything in his power to keep her there…

Could a possible rip in time be the salvation that Nell seeks?

“I find you disturbingly beautiful,” are the contradictory words bestowed upon the governess by her master.

Mr Buchannan’s infatuation is a shadow from which Nell cannot escape. The feelings he holds for her are not reciprocated, and though his lust soon turns to love, Nell’s feelings towards him turn to hatred. Dreams and a love of literature are Nell’s only escapism from the downtrodden life she leads as a governess in the nineteenth century.

One night, an intruder on the estate catches Nell off guard, but she gives chase; a decision that leads her through an opening in time between the centuries, where she finds equality, true friendship and a completely different outlook on life.

BOOK REVIEW:

“His soft words melted into her ear ‘You must have no fear of me loosening, for I shall never let you go'”

When I first saw this book I though, WOW an amazing cover and I can’t wait to see what this book is about. Then I read the summery and thought it would be extremely interesting reading a story that involved time traveling; this was the first book that I have experienced with this.

There were three different time periods that the book traveled to; 1813, 1968 and 2014, all three very different from the other. During this time, the main character Nell had gone through a huge amount of growth, from being a naive woman to one who travel through time and found out new things about her life and what life could be in the future. I even think that I had seen some growth within Mr. Buchannan, who was very interesting to figure out.

I like that this book kept me guessing, I never knew what was going to happen next. All the plot twists were quite the shockers!!! I believe this is what made the book so enjoyable to me. I have read many books where I have not been shocked and surprised by the events that occurred and the ending, but this one definitely did.
