Freebies, Giveaways & Book Sales Facebook Group

 

 

Hey guys, 

 

I know many of you are not too fond of Facebook but to me it's the easiest, simplest, most common way to interact with people. Anyway, I started a new group where I share news about Free books, book sales and even Giveaways related to books. 

 

If you're already on FB, you can always request to join the Group to stay on the loop ;) 

Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/567637953425929/

 

** Edit: An earlier version of this post said that anyone could access the group without having to log into Facebook but apparently that's not possible *sad face* and you actually need to be part of FB to see this group even if you don't want to join it. Sorry! 

Review: Warrior of Fire (Blood & Silver #2) by Shona Husk 4 out of 5 stars

Warrior of Fire - Shona Husk

This is the second installment in the Blood and Silver series. I honestly feel that this story cannot be read as a stand alone to be fully enjoyed as there are many aspects that would be missed if the first story is not read, well, first.

Leira and Julian are both part of an ancient yet almost extinct magical race called Albah. Because of prejudice and misconceptions about magic, their race has been hunted for as long as they can remember and now Julian is a target of those that want to end the Albah.

Fate plays an important role here but it’s not the focal point. The author manages to dance around it by making the characters think there is an already established path for everyone but also plays with the outcome by giving them infinite options depending on the choices people make.
In the case of Leira, and because of her magic, she knew she and Julian were supposed to meet but as the story progressed she wasn’t so sure anymore if that meant if they were supposed to be lovers or if he was just supposed to be in her life as something else. Julian knew there had to be more than magic and fate involved in their relationship because of the chemistry between them, and it was not just physical attraction but something deeper. And I definitely thanked the author for that because she didn’t go for the insta-lust here.
In the end, in spite of magic, fate, and crazy people going after them, they decided that risking it all for an uncertain but happy future was worth the risk.

The pace was a little slow for my taste but I’m willing to overlook it because I really liked this fantasy world, the complex characters and I thought this was a well-developed story.

This is interesting! I always thought that only authors could use the Giveaway tab but now it seems anyone can use it!

ARC Review and Goodreads Giveaway: Blackmailing the Bad Girl by Nina Croft

Blackmailing the Bad Girl - Nina Croft

Set in England, billionaire Nik Masterton is out to get the woman that took not only his money but also a piece of his heart. Summer Delaney has learned her lesson and promises to lead a better. Unfortunately the man she stole from wants has re-entered her life and it appears the new life she envisioned will have to wait.

This was a sweet and charming, yet totally hot and sexy second chance story. I loved the way Nik and Summer got to get reacquainted with each other because even though they got really, really close *wink wink* to get each other out of the other’s system –you can imagine how well that worked- they took their sweet time to start with the actual “romance.” They were both funny, witty, hard-headed, and protective of family and friends. Loved the chemistry and the dynamic they each had with secondary characters. I haven't read the first one in the series but I will soon remedy that and of course I'll continue the series and will read more by this author.

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

Review 4/5 stars: Lord of Chance (Rogues to Riches, #1) by Erica Ridley

Lord of Chance (Rogues to Riches Book 1) - Erica Ridley

This is sort of a re-release since it first appeared in the Scandal’s Daughters Anthology, but fret not as this “is an expanded ‘Author Edition.’"

Charming and complex characters, well-told story, and not your usual rags to riches plot make this a delightful and engaging story. Anthony was a gambler down on his luck and up to his neck in debt when he met Charlotte. They were both fleeing from a dark past at the same time that they were looking for a different, brighter future. Unfortunately a play of words in a foreign place bound them together into marriage and their hopes at a brighter future just tumbled down.

The romance itself was emotive and believable. They grew to care for each other over a feasible amount of time to the point of willing to sacrifice their love for the sake of each other’s happiness. If anything, the only thing I didn’t find plausible is that they spent a lot of time together, alone, in a bedchamber, and there was no mention of any kind of sexual frustration. There were plenty of good reasons why the deed wasn’t done but I would have thought some tension would have been more palpable. Other than that, I loved their relationship because more than anything they were friends and they supported each other, even when they could become pariahs in society.

The settings were rich in detail and the story had that fluidity that I love because it keeps me engrossed in the story. I also loved that it dealt with deep themes such as addiction and prejudice yet it kept a light side and didn’t turn into a sob-inducing story. I do believe addiction is a tough subject and even harder to overcome however I’ve also witnessed that given the right circumstances and for the right reasons a person can actually beat it. That’s one of the reason I don’t think Anthony’s recovery was that far-fetched and it could very much have happened quickly indeed.

Twists and turns and the fact the story definitely did not have the ending I expected make this a most delightful and entertaining read and I definitely recommend it to those looking for a well-told, unique, romantic story.

Arc review: Indiscretion: A Standalone Forbidden Romance by Lane Hart

Indiscretion: A Standalone Forbidden Romance - Lane  Hart

 

Not what I was expecting! 

Although I’ve heard great things of this author this is actually my first book by her. I’m not much of a contemporary romance reader unless it’s packed with action and suspense but there was something about the blurb that caught my attention and I just couldn’t pass the chance to read this book. 

 

So, for starters, Clark Kent as my physical therapist? Sign me up!

 

 

 

The story begins with what Sam thinks is a little white lie to her PT, Dr. Grant Matthews, never imagining it could potentially ruin the man’s future. What starts as silly flirtation and later sizzling make-out sessions turns into something deeper and more meaningful before either one of them realizes it.

 

I’ll be honest and say that I’m not too fond of stories told in the present tense or in the first person POV but that didn’t even bother me here because it was just that well-told. All characters’ personality jumped out of the pages and that’s something I can always appreciate. Sam was innocent without sounding dim-witted; I think she was just a woman acting her age. Grant on the other hand kind of grew on me because when the story started I sort of hated the man, like big time, sexy glasses and all.

 

The story had plenty of twists and turns that I did not expect, some that I could see coming but were still interesting, plenty of laugh out and tear-jerking moments, and some that had me cheering for love and justice to triumph over everything. I’m not so sure about the ending because I thought it was tied up way too nicely however overall it was a great story and I’ll definitely be reading more from this author.

Arc Review: Jane Grey: A Homage to the Brontë Classics (The Brontë Brothers #1) by Nina Mason

Jane Grey (The Brontë Brothers Book 1) - Nina Mason

 

I’ll start by saying that Jane Eyre happens to be my least favorite classic historical romance. So when offered the chance to read this story I was truly intrigued and couldn’t pass the opportunity to read it.

 

Well, Jane Grey was a great romance story indeed! I don’t want anyone to think it wasn’t based on my rating. I did enjoy it from start to finish, true, however I also did have a few issues with the story itself. At any rate, I still recommend it to any fan of the original and to those looking for a worthwhile happy ending.

 

Matthew and Jane have a lot in common and that’s obviously what drew them together. They were both hopeless romantics to the point they could both recite poems by heart and Matthew was a painter hoping to revive his then-dormant muse.

At the start of the story, Matthew was hurt and vulnerable, thus he gave me the impression of just having fallen in love with the idea of the perfect woman that could possibly be Jane as opposed to the woman herself. As the story progressed and they got to know each other better, his attitude left no doubt in my mind that he had in fact fallen for Jane as a woman so I was happy on that end.

 

Their relationship was endearing and heart-warming. The story was heart-wrenching at times and hopeful at others. The descriptive settings made me feel I was part of the story itself and the writing was as beautiful as ever when it comes to this author.

 

As for Jane, she was sweet and considerate, but to an almost maddening point in my opinion. Most of the time she showed strength of character and common sense but when it came to trusting unworthy people or when it came to continue on the path she had already set her mind to follow she was inconstant and mutable. That whiplash attitude was one of the reasons I couldn’t enjoy the story more.

Also, the story is set in a place where propriety is not as strict as it would have been in England at the time but I still thought Jane didn’t come up to scratch as a governess to some extent. I’m not going to give specific examples because I don’t want to give spoilers but suffice to say her pupil would act incredibly unlady-like and Ms. Gray would just stand there and do nothing. I know, I’ve been told I need to let go of certain things when it comes to historicals but I just can’t!

 

As I said earlier dear reader, it IS a lovely story, full of passion, regrets, ambition, and true love. If this sounds like your cup of tea then I’m sure you are going to love it.

Arc Review: It's Me Again, Baby (O'Connor Family #3) by Katie Reus

It's Me Again, Baby (O'Connor Family Series Book 3) - Katie Reus

*** 3.5 stars ***

Katie Reus is the queen of the second chances trope. She’s got that down to a science and this book only reinforced that thought for me.

Samantha and Maguire parted ways a while ago because of a misunderstanding but neither got over the other one. Now that they finally got a chance to talk things over they’re giving their relationship another chance.

The narrative of the story was fast-paced and so was the romance however it was still well told. Throw in the dynamics of one of my favorite fictional towns (not to mention some super hot sex scenes) and you have a nice, fun read. I didn’t like the ending much as I thought it was too rushed and expected but other than that it was an enjoyable read.

Arc review: The Bad Luck Bride (The Cavensham Heiresses #1) by Janna MacGregor

The Bad Luck Bride (The Cavensham Heiresses) - Janna MacGregor

First of all, call me shallow but that cover has something that would definitely beckon me to pick it up from the shelf and at least see what the story is about.

At the beginning, Alex had no idea what Claire looked or what she was like because they had only met briefly and that had been a few years prior. Nonetheless, he proposed and was immediately drawn to her fragile and sweet demeanor. They both understood their union was out of necessity and agreed that just like many other marriages of the time, theirs could be based only on affection if not everlasting love.

And affection was given, in fact, affection was given too much too soon in my opinion. Supposedly, Alex’s motives were based on a wrong made to his family. However just days after they met again he was already thinking of protecting her, and not only because of his personal motives or out of honor but rather because of the feelings she stirred in him ~ really? That quickly? After that there were all kinds of romantic moments that obviously cemented the romantic aspect of the story still I wish their love would have been fleshed a bit more.
Also, Alex’s behavior was confusing in general. He was supposed to be a man of honor and yet he was manipulative, jealous, and revengeful, oh, and add to that a bad friend. In the end, he finds a way to find redemption for all his wrong-doings but man, did he take his sweet time to get there.

As for the story itself, there were a few plot holes that I’m sure will be filled in the next book in the series but I thought they should have been explained here. I also think the two different arcs (Claire’s bad luck and Alex’s revenge) overlapped each other in a way that it got distracting at times. Not to mention that I feel there was a lot of telling when there could have been more showing, especially at the beginning of the book. And one thing that bothered me to no end was that one of the characters was being referred to as Lord Paul by his so-called long-time friends when his full name was Lord Paul Barstowe, second son of a duke. Ok, I shamelessly admit it, I’m a nitpicker, and for that reason I cringed every time they called him that. I know! I’m a petty and I know it :/

In short, I did enjoy the book but I didn’t love it. It had its good moments, particularly when it came to Claire’s life and complex characters. If a reader is not as demanding as me when it comes to their romantic stories and plot lines I’m sure they will be able to enjoy it even more.

Sorrow has shadowed Julian Ryder for as long as he can remember.

Arc Review: I Dared the Duke (The Wayward Wallflowers, #2) by Anna Bennett

I Dared the Duke - Anna Bennett

Second installment in The Wayward Wallflowers series but can easily be read as a standalone. Both Alex and Beth are unique characters in that he’s not what he’s allowed the ton to believe and she’s not the meek mouse he’s thought her to be. Although there is some sort of spark when they first meet there is no instant physical attraction, which I truly appreciated. I was glad to see their feelings blossomed from engaging in actual conversations and from daily interaction.

There was an easy and funny banter between the two that made their relationship feel real and believable. Even though the Duke behaved roguish and intimidating at times, Beth showed plenty of resolve and strength of character, both to resist his charms and later to help him overcome some personal issues.

There was however that little issue with the so-called “incidents”. The heart of the matter is that it appears someone was trying to hurt Alex. Instead of enlisting the help of professionals or at least gather more intelligence before jumping to conclusions he actually secluded himself into his old home with the person he said he loved the most. There is also Beth, who at the beginning of the story showed such wit and an agile mind but towards the end was pushing Ben to act recklessly and even use her as bait to uncover the villain. It was as if she was a completely different person than the woman at the beginning.


In short, I was hooked when the story started but not so much as the story progressed and quite frankly I was conflicted in how I felt when I finished it. I suppose it was still a good story but in my opinion it just didn’t deliver in the mystery aspect nor did it provide the ending I needed.
3.5 stars.

Arc review: Saving the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins Sexy Space Odyssey #3) by Nina Croft

Saving the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins’ Sexy Space Odyssey) - Nina Croft

Third and final installment in the fast-paced, action-packed, sometimes incongruous but still funny at others saga.

Ruby and Killian live another day only to find themselves back in the lion’s den, attempting to complete another suicide rescue mission, only this time Killian is no longer a pirate but a man with a purpose and a sense of honor. Against all odds, the mission is a success, there are more surprises along the way, and Ruby and Killian find some kind of HFN.

I thought the serial as a whole was pretty interesting, if only there would have been more story as opposed to so much insta-lust and gratuitous sex then I would have liked it more. Then again this is more of an erotica so I'll take it as is and I'm sure other readers will enjoy it much more.

So when an anonymous employer offers him a tidy sum to extract one Ruby Robbins from a slaver ship, it sounds like easy money. But once he sets eyes on Ruby, he knows he's in over his head. Not only is she breathtakingly beautiful-she refuses to be saved.

 

Luckily Killian hasn't met a woman yet who could hold out against him for long....

 

The Ruby Robbins' Sexy Space Odyssey 3-Part Serial is best enjoyed in order.
