Review: Wondefully Wicked, by C.J Burright

wonderfully wicked

4 out of 5 dreamy stars!!

Well…color me black!! This book sank its claws on me and wouldn’t let me go!

description
It’s a new premise of a book. One I haven’t read before. It involves dreams!!!! And the way CJ Burright managed to weave reality and fiction, along with the dream state was wonderful.

The book is fast paced and with good characters.

It’s a kaleidoscopic book!!! Sometimes you are up and in the next blink you are down. You are in dreamland and suddenly back in reality

Trust felt like being naked at the beach. No protection, completely vulnerable to sand, sun, and the occasional seagull droppings. Total suck potential….Kalilia Montmomery

All Kalila Montgomery wanted was to have a normal life, to be able to sleep without her nightmares, but not just normal nightmares, but once that can come to life that can hurt the people around her.

Being an orphan and passed from house to house, knowing an attack can come at any moment, she learned to defend herself, against those who would harm her, and of never being afraid, never letting her come to life nightmares get her.

Little did she know that her knight in shining armor would come clad in black, could turn into any of her nightmaress, and with the promise of death on his eyes.
description

The Black, as his peers call him, is the baddest of the bad. One rung lower that The White. His job is to bring back a dreamcaster so they can extract her nightmares.

There was just one small problem…. She summoned him, and suddenly his bleak life came awake, and he found himself looking to the future with something akin to hope. But how to help Kalila and still keep on living??

“Something wicked this way comes?” “From every direction, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.”

The banter between the main characters is funny, charged, and complicated.

Definitely a series that I’d like to keep reading!

Why the 4 stars? Well, there are parts where I had to reread the chapter because suddenly I was lost, I kind of lost track of where the action was taking place, or though I’d skipped some part because thing didn’t add up, I think the author’s imagination was charging ahead while her writing was trotting behind. And couldn’t quite project what her mind was showing her. But on her defence I think is a very complicated reality in her book.

All in all, I liked the book.

Review: Tailored for trouble by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

wp-1468639197469.jpg

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!!

As always Mimi can make you laugh AND want to throw your book out the window at the same time….

Looved this book.  It has a lot of angst,  there were time, where I just wanted to Not read the book,  not knowing what would happen,  or actually thinking what would happen,  and then PLOT Twist!!!  Not what I expected.

If has its serious funny moments,  as in laugh out loud moments,  because Mimi Jean sure knows how to write quirky characters with quick wit and humor.

The hero in this book is the classic Alpha Male,  set in his ways,  since it’s his way or the highway.  Domineering,  controlling,  handsome, with very high standards for him and those who surround him.  But Bennett is a whole other person once you get to know the real him.

Ms. Reed is unaware that once she meets Bennett she’ll go through a whole process of getting to know herself,  and reevaluating her whole life and her views on people.

I had a not so easy time liking Taylor,  because I felt her a little stiff,  but in the end you really like her.  Bennett on the other hand I liked him since the first time he appeared.

You also have some second characters that really make the whole book come together nicely. Bennett’s mom is very sweet and foul mouthed,  so she is a  whoot !!!  And of course Mrs.  Lucy that we know from the previous book.  But don’t worry if you didn’t read it.  This can be read as a stand alone.

All in all,  this  book is a very funny and tender book that I definitely recommend!!!!

Review: Forbidden by Katrina Snow

Forbidden   5 out of 5 magical stars

A fantastical, and magical romance! Full of Magik, spontaneity, quick wit and humor.

Who knew genies do exists, and in the form of an alluring young woman??

What’s the problem you say? Well imagine being robbed of your life or being used solely for the purpose of somebody else’s gain.

description

Well lady Katherine Durant is exactly that. A Genie in the making. She has magik that she will bind so she won’t be discovered and traced by her awful uncle, and flees for the ninth time in hopes of escaping her new found fate! She will belong to a master!!! A master that can turn invisible, that can make her do anything he wants. But the ceremony while binding isn’t yet complete.

Fleeing is her only hope, but to where? So she turned to a cousin for help, and ends up becoming her cousin’s hand maid. As Kate, a maiden full of spunk, quick wit, and snarky humor.

“Would you like to know why as well, Kate?” “ Of course,” she said with batting eyelashes and a honey-sweet tone. “Please pontificate.”

Their set their course to the competition for the hand of the prince!!

And well, here we find another lovely character!!! Bregovi!!!

description

A complete jokester with a heart of gold. The bandit prince, who has to marry accordingly, and was entered by his father in a bid for his hand. Turns out all he ever needed was the love, humor and intelligence in a maiden that was not supposed to love him back.

Falling in love has never been this fun, or this perilous. And can Kate keep the love of her life after he knows the truth?

Romance flows from the pages!! I read it in almost one sitting!

Katrina Snow will transport you to a time full of wonder, and magic, balls, and beautiful dresses. Definitely a book to read, and there is a little teaser at the end hinting that there will be more to come. If there are, I will definitely read them!

It very well written an excellent debut book!

I was given this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Review: A promise of fire, by Amanda Bouchet

This is a Gem in the Fantasy romance category!!!!!

I was not prepared for one of the best books I’ve read this year! This book has it all. Great spunky, charming, heartwarming characters.
My face couldn’t keep up with my smiling all the time!! Seriously, I was like the Cheshire cat!!

It is very well written, and the characters are complex, and very well developed, but above all the story line is fantastic.

Cat: A Faisan, born with magic and a prophecy of destruction in her head,she has never known the meaning of family, except for torture, has managed to remain anonymous for eight years, blending with the circus where she has finally managed to be part of a “ loving family”.

That is until a certain Warlord decides she need to come with him and his companions.

description

I hate him. I really do. Sort of. Not really, Gods! I’m such a mess!

Bound by a magic rope that ties her to him, she cannot go more than four feet from him, not even to bathe… but she has her aces up her sleeve!!!

Beta Sinta, the second in command form the southern region is the one calling all the shots, a non magic person that managed to defeat the magic royals, and install her sister on the throne.. But he knows he needs more than brute strength and intelligence to keep the realm, hence the search for the soothsayer!

Their journey together through the lands in the hopes of reaching Sinta without killing each other, is a travel full of discoveries, for all of the involved, and a new form of family starts to build for Cat.

I hate them all. Well, maybe not the girls. Or the parents. Or anyone, really. Gods! What is wrong with me?

But her past is trying to catch up with her, and her secrets might be the undoing of the budding romance that is happening. Can love surpas her past, can Beta Sinta see beyond what Cat is
And see the real her? And after finding out who and what she is, can they have a real future together?…..They can try!! (inside joke!!)

The secondary Characters are a whoot! Each individual that comes into play adds a little bit more to the story, compleats it, and are part of many funny moments in the book. You end up loving all the characters, and hating the bad ones!!!

“How’s Griffin?” Flynn asks. I roll my eyes. “How should I know?” They burst out laughing, and I scowl. “ Fine. Smug and self-satisfied, as usual.”

This is the first book of a trilogy, a trilogy I will definitely read, that is already marked on my calendar!!!!

I’m telling you, if you like romance, adventure and a little bit of magic (or a lot), then DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK!!!!!!`

Review CRAVE, by Victoria Danann

4 out of 5 amazing stars!

Crave is the second book on The Exiled series.

 

“ By those who made the sun and stars and full moon above, I give my promise to you, Dandelion. For as long as I live I will be yours and yours alone. Your good is my good, Your desire is my desire. Your need is my need. Never will I desert you or stand against you. This I promise”  Crave

cave-42683689-730x485

Crave, the second son of Free and Selene, was captured by the Rautt for years, tortured, taunted, left alone and isolated. When he is finally free, he is a wild animal, all impulse no reason, pure animal instinct and survival, who does not recognize friend from foe. Not even his family or his Promised.

 

Dandilion, the Promised of Crave, has been waiting faithfully and hopefully for Craves return. She is the only one that “knows in her heart” that he is alive. When he finally is rescued, he doesn’t even know who she is, and for all intents and purposes, doesn’t even care.

 

She is devastated!!

 

Can they actually surpas their past and present to recapture what the had?

 

The book is slow paced, for that, its the only reason it is not 5 stars. Usually in Dannans books the pace is really fast, an action packed book, full of adventure, romance, steamy scenes, fights, but this book is really  more of an unconditional love from one person to another. The love that the whole community shows for one member and his family.

 

“Do you know what’s behind you right now? Half of Exiled are here with you in this gods-forsaken place. They’ve burned with you and froze with you. They think that much of you….And one by one Free named evey person who’d come to show their support for Crave.”

peregrinos-yendo-a-la-meca-leon-be-belluy-1861

There were parts when I bawled my eye out!! And others where I giggled like a little girl, and the happily ever after is one of the best I have read!

 

A definitely must read, and can’t wait for the third book to come out!!!!

Release Blast for CARNAL WHISPERS by Reily Garrett

To delve into another’s mind is to revel in the depths of truth

 

CARNAL WHISPERS: 
MIND STALKER
Carnal #3
Reily Garrett
Releasing July 11th, 2016
To
delve into another’s mind is to revel in the depths of truth, cringe in the
face of past and imagined horrors, and suffer their dreams, all while searching
for balance and serenity.
Daniele
is a mysterious, gentle, and loyal young woman harboring knowledge capable of
destroying millions. Thumbing her nose at fate, she hides in plain sight while
concealing her extraordinary talent, enduring isolation despite her fantasies
of a normal life.
 Marc, owner of the BDSM club, Ambrosia, is
determined to protect the elusive beauty stalked by a psychopathic killer.
Hidden underneath her vulnerability, he senses a courage and determination
forged from horrific circumstances. While adapting unique scenes to free her
from fear and low self-esteem, he strives to stay one step ahead of a branch of
the government answering to no one.
Each
must rely on the other to survive a world where betrayal and deception, desire
and trust, weave a fabric that threatens their sanity.
MY REVIEW:
5 out of 5 thrilling stars

Definitely a book to read!!!

There are people that want Dani for their own, to have her locked up and never see the light of day ever again, only to be used for their nefarious purposes.

There are others who also want her but for other reasons, as a link to someone else, and both of them will stop at nothing to get her.

Dani has been on the run from her past and from herself for the last few years, but now she finds herself contemplating and wanting a life she knows she can never have, but can Mark provide it for her? can he learn her secret and still consider her human?

Even though Dani is a submissive person, she has the heart and the spine of a warrior! her courage in the face of adversity is one of the thing that has Marc falling very hard for her. And even though she has been through a lot, she still has the ability to open herself up for another human being. She has always felt as less than human, and hated her special ability, but now, she has found that there are advantages to having it!!

Can you say Alpha male? well Marc Crofton  is the perfect definition of an alpha male! and on the plus side, he is gorgeous.

As an ex-military PI, and  owner of a BDSM club, he has all the  necessary traits and ingrained  predisposition to keeps safe and alive his new love interest.

I have some issues with his personality, but that is just me, apparently  I’m not as submissive, lol. but you just can’t help but fall for the guy when all he wants is to protect Dani at all costs. And of course you just fall in love with his sidekicks, two very well trained and loving (with Dani)  German Shepherds.

The heat between the two character sizzles, and all the erotic scenes are very well written. Definitely a plus for the story.

The characters are well developed, and the story is a never ending suspense.

If you haven’t read the other books in  this series, this can be read as a stand alone book, but there are some references that you do need the previous book to understand. You wont be lost, that I can promise you.

legged). Life is short. Cherish your time
