This trilogy is intense and funny and an all out absolute must read. K.F. Breene puts so much life into her stories that keep me coming back for more.

Review: Mission: Armor

Mission: Armor Mission: Armor by A.D. Starrling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A woman knows what she wants but a man is stubborn and slow to figure it out. Vivian Thorpe joins the team with a deadline set not long after rescuing Alex Slade. The whole team works really well together, especially under great pressure. There are LOL moments with the bantering and teasing throughout this whole book. The men are tough but the women are kick-arse. There is definitely no dull moments with this team. I fell in love with A.D. Starrling's writing with The Seventeen Series and now Division Eight series is drawing me in even more.

The Release of FIFTY FROGS! by Tawdra Kandle, Author

The Release of FIFTY FROGS! by Tawdra Kandle, Author



Vivian is sick of dating. Sick of the way guys treat her, sick of living and crying by when and if they call . . . she’s just done. 

When her aunt reminds her that a girl has to kiss a lot of frogs before she finds her prince--Aunt Gail says that number is fifty--Vivian decides she’s taking control of her dating life: she’s going to go on a series of first dates only, and each one must end in a kiss. She begins chronicling each date--the good, the bad and the downright unbelievable--with a plan to turn the stories into an in-depth magazine series about the realities of dating in the twenty-first century.

Everything’s going along according to plan until Vivian hits a bump in her road with Frog Number Five, who doesn’t seem to understand his role in this deal. And despite Vivian’s determination to make it all the way to the big five-oh, when fate keeps throwing this same man across her path, she begins to wonder if maybe it’s time to ditch the plan . . . and kiss just one more frog.

Review: The Policewoman

The Policewoman The Policewoman by Justin W.M. Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Police Woman by Justin W. M. Roberts is a very intense read. At first, I was having trouble because for me it started out slow. Didn’t know if the pace was going to pick up or not. But once I got through the background he was giving and who the players were it really picked up. And the action kept going all the way through till the end. Not very often is a writer able to really blend action with a developing love story but it is there and it is done supremely well. The characters, the plots, the twists, and turn, kept me engrossed in the book always waiting for the next surprise. This book made my adrenaline pump and my heart reach out to the characters near the end. I won’t ruin it for you, you got to read it yourself and see if you are touched by it.

Review: Dragon's Gift: The Huntress Complete Series

Dragon's Gift: The Huntress Complete Series Dragon's Gift: The Huntress Complete Series by Linsey Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ancient Magic – Waking up in the middle of nowhere with no memories except a few words among two other girls that you have no memory of would be horrifying in itself. Then to figure out you have powers that are forbidden would definitely make me want to run and hide. Cass, Nix, and Del become very strong women/sisters in a world that is strange and confusing to them in the beginning then when things start to take a turn and Aidan (The Origin himself) shows up things get even rockier. Cass and Aidan make a team to be reckoned with once Cass finally lets go even for a small amount of time. Linsey Hall grabbed me with The Mythean Arcana series and holds on tight with this one. I can't wait to read more of this series.

Mirror Mage – Nightmares of a past that she can't remember and when those nightmares become her present reality things get scarier than before. Del, Nix, Cass, Aiden, Conner, and Claire all come together to help save one little girl while Del, Nix, and Cass try to keep their secret. Things come to light but more things stay in mystery. Aiden and Cass start discovering each other more and more. Secrets can keep you safe but they can also get you captured, as Cass finds out quickly. The monster is lurking and the women want to find and destroy him. Linsey Hall keeps pulling me in deeper with this second book of the Dragon's Gift series.

Stolen Magic – I couldn't imagine losing 15 years of my memory and then very slowly getting it back. That, to me, would be torture in itself. Aiden, Cass, Nix, and Del make one heck of a team when they work together. Now on a mission to save the world the sisters find themselves piecing together not only their past but possibly the reason what the Monster is up to. Aiden and Cass start getting closer to each other and opening up to each other more. Linsey Hall has caught me in her web of words and hasn't let go yet. I can't wait for more in this series.

Eternal Magic – Aiden, Del, Nix, and now Connor and Claire teaming up to help Cass work together very well. Aiden and Cass are getting closer even through all the chaos that has become their life. Cass, Del, and Nix are finding uncovering more secrets of their forgotten past. Victor is getting ever closer. With secrets being revealed and more to unravel working together is the only way to go for this band of friends. Linsey Hall has kept me captured in this series straight from the beginning and I can't wait for more.

Infinite Magic – This is the ultimate battle and things are stacked against the six of them. The three sisters and their three friends work together like clockwork. Cass has come into her new powers and is afraid to let it loose on her enemy in fear of harming her family, but when push comes to shove she is a force to be reckoned with. Cass and Aidan have become a whole lot closer and the heat between them is flaming hot. Linsey Hall really put me inside her story and now I am wanting even more.

Review: The Flawed Series Box Set

The Flawed Series Box Set The Flawed Series Box Set by Becca J. Campbell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Empath (Flawed, #1) - Growing up isolated from the outside world because of a gift/curse that Jade has no control over had to have been hard, especially when she finally goes out on her own into the real world. She starts to learn things about herself that she would've never known if she wouldn't have gotten out of the isolation of her protective parents. She finally meets Logan who can control his own feelings to where Jade is able to feel her own, only to be left alone all over again. She finds Cam, Josh, and Chloe Schuyler, siblings that aren't hard to be around, and clings to their emotions when things around her get too overwhelming, but soon finds that, although out of her control, those emotions are slowly becoming her own. She is confused and unsure about anything until she is in danger and the one person that she knows can help her comes to her rescue. Becca Campbell did an amazing job with this story, making me feel as though I was right there with them, can't wait for more.

Constricted (Flawed #1.5) - I do have to say, first off...you definitely have to read the first book in this series to understand what is going on in this one. I feel for Logan and his predicament that he has put himself into. He runs from his past and starts to run from his future as well. He is a smart man just confused about things. Finally able to confront his past but unsure how to go about it. Then he is faced with yet another problem that he is a bit afraid to confront but really wants to. Becca Campbell did an awesome job bringing this book to life and making me want more.

Outsider (Flawed, #2) - Ethan now Nic very creepy. This series keeps getting better with every book and very suspenseful. Josh has been my favorite in this series so far with his quiet, shy nature. All he wants is to be special but what he doesn't realize is he is special just the way he is. Things change for him and he finally feels he has a purpose until he starts ousting those that he holds dear. Then when the unexpected happens and he is faced with cold hard reality he realizes all he wants is for his family and friends to be safe and happy. There is so much love and friendship in this whole series. Becca Campbell really pulled me in and hasn't let me go yet. I can't wait to read more in this series.

Protector (Flawed, #3) - Logan and Jade are 2 of my favorite characters in this series. They have a chemistry together that is endless. Logan always the protector and Jade always loving and caring, wanting to help those in need whenever she can. When things start coming together only to almost fall apart again, these two work together and take charge with help from a very quiet and very scared patient, Hugh, and his light, Kelsey. Becca Campbell really pulls everything together in this story and pulled me farther into the series. I can't wait to read more.

The Father Hunt (Flawed #3.5) - As with the rest of this series this book has some mystery to be solved and secrets brought to light. Graham and Violet set out to solve the mystery of who his father is on their yearly vacation and what they find out is so very shocking. Becca Campbell really knows how to suck you into her world and keep you there wanting for more.

Enchanter (Flawed, #4) - Talk about bittersweet, this book has it all. Violet on a very scary rampage, Jade in emotional turmoil, and Logan is wrapped up in it all, leading to one crazy ride that grabs your attention from the start. With the help of Chloe and Graham, Jade starts moving with her abilities and emotions instead of against them. Becca Campbell has won me over with the very first book of this series and I haven't looked back since.

Life is pretty drab when you hide your true self. This story brings that to life. Knowing who you are but hiding it from the rest of the world can be isolating.

Rebel Cause by Cassandra Giovanni BLOG TOUR





Reese White has spent her whole life trying so hard to be perfect, that when she looks in the mirror, she doesn't know the person staring back at her. Sure, she's always gotten high grades and excelled academically, but she's never put much time into herself. Now, as she heads off to college, Reese realizes she's remained so hidden inside a book that she's invisible to everyone, including herself.


Kellin Lake has always seen Reese, his little sister's best friend, the beautiful girl hidden behind baggy clothes and good grades--but he's hiding, too-- even from her. Tattoos, lip piercing and lead singer in a metal band, he's a rebel without a cause. But that's just to the people at school. At home, he covers it all up, and he's the boy with the angel's voice, and a 4.0 only his parents know about.


When Reese flips the switch and takes control of her looks, they make an arrangement-- pretend to be in a relationship to elevate Reese's social status. It's simple. Kellin helps his sister's best friend, and Reese isn't invisible anymore. No one falls in love. No one gets hurt. But what Reese doesn't realize is Kellin is already in love with her.


And now things get a hell of a lot more complicated.

EXCERPT ONE

“So are you going to explain what all of this is about?” Lindy asks as she holds the door open for me to the mall.
“I may have asked Tyler out on a date…and he rejected me.”
And I’m insanely jealous of any girl I see your brother kissing…
Lindy is silent for a moment, and all I can hear is the sound of her heel’s clicking on the ceramic tiles and noise of my too big jeans as they drag on it.
“No shit,” Lindy replies, and I look at her bubble gum pink sweater, floral tank, and skinny jeans.
I bite my cheek before looking straight ahead. “Apparently, you’re more his type.”
“Like I’d ever go for that,” Lindy replies, her lips curling under as she sticks her tongue out. “So what is this, a makeover?”
“Exactly.”
The smile grows on Lindy’s face as she looks me over. “Are you sure you want to do this?”
I nod. “I know exactly who I am, and it’s time for me to show it.”
“So are we going for preppy?” she asks as we begin to walk again.
I shake my head. “Not at all.”
“What are we going for then?”
“I love you, Lind, but I am definitely not you,” I answer as we walk past Express and Lindy’s head stays fixed on a mannikin in a set of dark wash skinny jeans and a tight black v-neck tee. I stop, and she slams into me. “Think Kellin’s type.”
“Softcore rebel without a cause?” Lindy asks as I turn into the store and grab my size in the jeans and the smallest version of the shirt I can find.
“Exactly, except I love the music he plays,” I reply.
Lindy shakes her head at me, taking the pants and putting them back down and grabbing a smaller size. “Right, then you’ll want pants that are actually your size.”
“How do you know what size I am?” I ask.
“I’ve seen you in a bathing suit. You’re tiny beneath all that cotton.”
I take the pants from her and head into the dressing room. When I come out, Lindy has a pile of jeans for me just as skinny as the ones I’ve slipped into but in a variety of colors including a pair of ripped ones. I grab them from her hands and smile.
“Perfect,” I reply.
“Reese, you’re going to make Tyler have a heart attack,” Lindy says as she looks me up and down with the widest smile I’ve ever seen on her.
“This isn’t about Tyler,” I reply as I turn to the full-length mirror.
“Who is it about then?”
My heart stutters for a moment as Kellin’s face comes to mind. I shake my head, before looking up at the girl in the mirror and smiling. “Me.”
“If I know you well enough this shirt is going to be right up your alley,” she says, draping a black t-shirt with silver scroll and skulls over my shoulder.
I take a deep breath. “How did you know?”
Lindy shrugs. “I knew you were hiding a rebel under there; now we just need some band t-shirts.”
I turn to her. “And dye.”
“Dye?”
I nod. “And I’ll need to get contacts…and make-up.”
“We don’t want you to overdose on make-over here, Reese,” Lindy replies, chewing on the inside of her lip as I smile at her.
“I know exactly who I want to be, now are you going to help me or not?”
“Lead the way,” Lindy replies as she shakes her head with a laugh.


EXCERPT TWO

“Yeah, I’m not the ugly friend anymore,” I reply, picking at the strands of my ripped jeans.
Kellin scoffs. “You never were.”
I look up, raising my eyebrows at him. “Come on, Kell. I wasn’t pretty before.”
He shakes his head, his lips in a harsh line just like his jaw. “That’s bullshit, Ree. You’re the same girl you were before, except your clothes fit a little too good and you stopped wearing glasses.”
“Don’t forget this,” I reply tossing my hair over my shoulders, and staring at him through my bangs.
He reaches over and runs his fingers over my chin in a way that makes me inhale deeply.
Breathe, Reese. Breathe.
“I do like that color on you,” he replies, his hand falling over mine and weaving our fingers together.
“I thought you would, ” I answer without thinking, squeezing my eyes shut as I think of exactly how that sounds like I did this just to impress him.
“I’m glad you considered how I’d feel about the change.”
“You’re one of my best friends…besides Lindy, so of course I thought of what you’d think,” I explain, and Kellin’s hand pulls away from mine to go to the steering wheel.
He stares ahead, and I’m struck by the urge to take his hand back into mine again because now it feels wrong for his hand not to be there. We sit in silence until I finally speak.
“Are you mad at me?”
“Why would I be mad at you?” Kellin asks as he shifts the truck into park.
“I don’t know…you just seem angry,” I reply as I watch him squeezing the steering wheel with white knuckles.
“Not at all.”
“You sure?” I ask as he jumps out and moves the seat forward so he can grab his guitar and amplifier.
“Of course.” He slides the guitar over his back, taking the amp in one arm, so his biceps bulge as he holds out the other for me. “Ready to make an entrance?”
“Are you sure you want to do this?” I ask as I look at the already crowded venue.
“Absolutely positive.”
Being Kellin’s arm candy is strangely satisfying. Girls eyes follow us as we enter the room, and narrow on me when I kiss his cheek before he goes on stage. At the end of the show, I can feel their stares as he pulls me into his arms to hug me, and then slings his arm around my waist, tucking his hand into my front pocket.
“Guys, this is my girlfriend, Reese,” Kellin explains. “Joey Schmidt,” he nods to the screamer. “Carl Fague,” he nods to the drummer, and finally the bassist. “Johnny Temple — who you already know as Temp.”
“In other words, Schmidt, and Fague,” I fill in the blanks of how he usually refers to them.
“Exactly.” Kellin’s lips twitch as he looks at them staring at me.
