Figured I’d give this a go! Bringing up the older reviews I’ve done since starting into this crazy world of books, bloggers, authors, publishers, and readers. Its been an amazing journey to be on and I’m happy to have had all of you on the ride!

Going all the way back to,… Nov. 30, 2014

Lawd at how our reviews have changed over time.

 

21613024I was asked to review this book from the author. She had read one of my earlier reviews of the Christmas bundle, and after reading the intro to the book I decided to give it a whirl, plus the author was extremely sweet!

The gist of this book is Quinn is searching for her brother, Peter. Yes that is the plot and that is what we spend of our doing. Quinn gets a lead that takes her to Flordia to a military base where she meets Kevin. They end up on this massive road trip together looking for Peter, they go from Alabama to New York to Norfolk only to get to Norfolk and found the wrong Peter. (Now in New York there happens to be a sex scene and truthfully I could have done without that scene. 2 days and they are already in bed? And that isn’t the bad part the conversation while they are doing it,… well it creeped me out. Here we are for the most part of the book without much dialogue and HOLY MOLY she said WHAT? He did WHAT? Yeah not my scene)

Anyway Christmas Eve rolls around and Quinn is ready to throw in the towel, but come on its Christmas and there is always a Christmas miracle right?

The book is oked written. I kind of wish some of the flow was better. There were times that there were awkward pauses, but for the most part it was a pretty good read. I kind of wish there was more though. The story just felt short and like we were missing things here and there.

 

22581024Will their love be strong enough to keep them alive and get them back to Earth?

Finding one’s psi-mate is something every Sandarian hopes for, but when Ian Cavacent accidentally starts the bonding process with the Earthling, Dani, he has to fight his desire with every ounce of his being. If the process is completed, it means both political and financial suicide for Ian and his family.

A natural klutz, Dani somehow always manages to land on her feet and win her mixed martial arts matches. At home on Cat Island, her balance is thrown when bazillionaire Ian takes notice. Unfortunately some Torog aliens also take notice, sending her life spiraling out of control and into Ian’s arms. But Dani isn’t the type of woman to let alien voodoo decide her future or her mate. . .no matter how gorgeous the man is or how much pleasure he gives her.

For centuries the Cavacents have mined Earth for a precious element, carnium, while protecting the planet from other alien species. Thanks to the Torogs, Dani and Ian must flee to Sandaria. As Dani learns to use her newfound psi powers, the empire crumbles around them.

This book set up this series to a great start. I loved Dani’s character. She is so… “normal” but still not normal at the same time. She is a normal girl. Pretty but not fall from grace beautiful. She is a clumsy ditz and I love it. Ian I hated. He was a huge jerk over half the time all because aliens and humans can’t be together, even when he knew Dani was his mate. Even when he knew she had powers as well. He still gave her the cold shoulder. It was frustrating. We get to meet many characters that I think will be important for the other books. I loved the amount of love, action, and suspense that the author gives us. I don’t want to spoil to much by going into details but this is one book you will want to check out.

*This is one series you will want to check out. The author introduces us to so many vivid planets and different animals and ways of life that you feel like you are apart of it. It is a beautiful world and one I am thankful I got to be apart! Make sure you grab up a copy of this series! You won’t be disappointed.*

21895426My name is Carrie. For the past fifteen years I have lived with an abusive monster that I feared I would spend the rest of my life with or worse would become my killer. But one night fate turned my entire world upside down, giving me a second chance at a new life. I was taken in by a friend I haven’t seen in years and thrust back into the path of a man that I thought I would never see again; forcing me to face the past and the one man I wish my heart could forget.

Andrew shows me the deepest, darkest side of passion, unleashing a side of myself I never knew existed. But everything comes at a price and will this be what finally costs me the man I have secretly loved my entire life?

I thought he would be the light in my life, that perhaps we could have back our moment in time that was stolen from us so long ago. But when Brian returns and secrets are exposed will our love be enough to withstand the ultimate test and the secrets Andrew’s kept hidden from me all these years? Or will I be forced back into the darkness that once consumed me?

First off let me start by saying I LOVED this book. While there are parts that left me wanting to know more information that wasn’t given I stayed on the edge of my couch while reading it. I started it one night and finished it that same night. I couldn’t put it down. I needed to know more about Carrie, Andrew, and even the villain Brian. Carrie spent 15 years in a relationship based on lies and abuse, she is one of the strongest women you read about. Her life is thrown apart when Brian tries to kill her and Andrew and his family comes to rescue her, but not all is what is seems and not everyone can be trusted. With Brian on the loose and others wanting her dead can Carrie come out on top? I can not wait for the second book in this series and I cant wait to see more of the other characters in the book. I do have questions left that are unanswered. What kind of “powers” do the women of the Enlightened Club have? Where did it come from? These are questions I hope are answered in the next book!

If you haven’t read this book or bought it, please do. You won’t be disappointed.

Soul Promise:

Soul Promise is the second book in The Soulmate Series. It can be read as a standalone but best if read after the first book, True Connection.
Soul Promise gave me my must needed insight of Henry and his challenges that I craved in the first book. He just found out that he has a wolf and to some he is an abomination, a freak. His strength and love moved me in ways that many authors can’t. I related to him in so many ways. Ah but my favorite is Ms. Delilah. She is so feisty and makes my inner wild child come out! The way these two move around each other, afraid to make a move, afraid to fall more, but mostly afraid to not be the others mate is heart breaking and just makes you want to scream just DO IT ALREADY!! This book will leave you satisfied but wanting more at the same time.

This is my first blog post on this blog. I recently started over from scratch, so I am still rebuilding! So please bare with me as I work this site back to its amazing form!

xoxo!
