OMG I’m so excited!

Published January 5, 2017 by The Author

You may have noted in the past that I am a little bit of a Darynda Jones fangirl. I bugged out last year when I read and reviewed THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE. I haven’t been doing a lot of reviews in the last few months for reasons I talked about in my New Year post. So I didn’t really think I’d get approved at Netgalley to review the upcoming (SQUEE!) ELEVENTH GRAVE IN MOONLIGHT.

But I DID! SQUEEEEE! And that on top of the upcoming sequel to my favorite read of 2016, IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY by Laurence MacNaughton — A KISS BEFORE DOOMSDAY (coming July 2017). I’m going to be not only reviewing that, but doing some other events for it in June!

It’s gonna be a good reading year, ladies and gentlemen!  EEEEEeeeee!

WLK Book Promotions Tour: COP ON HER DOORSTEP by Karen Docter!

Published December 17, 2016 by The Author

Cop on Her Doorstep

(True Love In Uniform Book 1)

by Karen Docter

In the six years since her husband was killed by S.W.A.T., Carrie Padilla has spent long hours at work, rebuilding a life for herself and her son. The little time she has at home is spent keeping her eight-year-old son out of trouble, but he is all too eager to try to be the man in the house. When a handsome cop shows up on her doorstep, her errant son in tow, Carrie’s heart stutters. The sexy Italian cop sets off all kinds of bells in her system, and she knows there’s only one thing she can do to save what is left of her family, her husband’s memory, and her heart…avoid her new neighbor at all costs.

S.W.A.T. officer Jake Stefani already lost one little boy to gang violence, the dead boy’s older brother is missing, and Jake’s not about to let the same thing happen to a neighbor’s son. He drags the youngster home only to discover much more than a passing interest in the boy’s beautiful, but wary, mother. Forced to take a leave of absence after a bust goes awry, Jake can think of nothing better to occupy his time than to keep Carrie and her son safe, and locate the missing teen who holds the key to taking the gang off the streets, once and for all.

But Jake doesn’t count on his stubborn, intriguing neighbor distracting him from his job, or the passion that flares between them. He doesn’t expect her amazing son to steal a piece of his heart. Jake is ready to risk everything for Carrie, body and soul. But it’s not all up to him. If their new love is to survive, Carrie will need to be strong enough to see the man’s beating heart behind the badge, to look beyond the pain of her past, and decide that loving again is worth the risk.

Batty Book Review: QUEEN OF SHADOWS by Sarah J. Maas!

Published December 15, 2016 by The Author

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 batty moons FIVE BATTY MOONS!

This is my favorite book in the series so far! The world expands exponentially, so we see much more of the places we’ve only heard about before this. The cast also explodes, but in the most wonderful way! Villains coming out of the woodwork, surprising heroes, characters we can’t be sure about their true alliance… so MUCH starts to unfold in this book, and we’ve only just begun! This starts the action roaring ahead that we’ve been waiting for since the beginning!

What’s even more important for me is that the characters really become more multi-dimensional, more real, and I have started to have a real investment in their fate for the first time. And I’m sure I’m not at all alone when I say I love Aelin and Rowan. They crack me up, make me sigh, make me cry. He’s a brute, but not a heartless, violent brute with no heart — he shows it more and more here. Aelin is no delicate flower, damsel in distress. Quite the opposite. Sometimes she can be a little hard and heartless herself, but ultimately she and Rowan melt each other, balance each other, make one another better. That’s the kind of ship I like to see.

I’m already into #5, and I can’t wait to get to reading time every day to see what happens next!

WLK Book Promotions: THE TRAINING HOUSE BOX SET by Eden Bradley

Published December 13, 2016 by The Author

The Training House

A BDSM Box Set

by NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Eden Bradley

Eden Bradley’s iconic kink stories GIRL, BOY and MASTER in The Training House Series are available now in print as a Box Set!

Pleasure in pain…pain in love…

They come to the Training House to become immersed in the most powerful and extreme form of submission: absolute slavehood. It is only in this formal environment, and under the strict rules of their slave contracts, that their immense yearnings can be satisfied. Or can they?

Aimée arrives with a pure slave’s heart, never expecting to find more than the fulfillment of a frightening and necessary sexual journey. Christopher has returned, as he always does. The baddest of bad slaves, he never truly expects to find anything beyond a temporary release. And then there’s the Master… Master Damon owns the Training House. His is a life of carefully followed rules, the extremes of deviant and sensual creativity, and the heavy weight of responsibility. The Training House is a dreamworld where needs are denied and met at a Master’s whims. But what happens when these rigid roles become fluid, and love is suddenly part of the game? Anyone could win—or everyone could lose it all.

~~~

THE TRAINING HOUSE Series is Eden’s hardest-core BDSM yet! More ‘erotica’ than ‘erotic romance’, there will nevertheless be a love story woven throughout these very kinky pages.

Batty Book Review: THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas

Published November 29, 2016 by The Author

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

>>> 4 batty moons FOUR BATTY MOONS!

This universe just grabbed me and won’t let go. One of the things that really makes this series unique is Celaena Sardothien, the sort-of heroine. I say “sort-of,” because she is really more of a protagonist than a straight-up heroine. She has serious–and understandable–flaws. Generally, we don’t see killers, especially paid assassins, as heroes. There are extenuating circumstances to her place in life. You really should read THE ASSASSIN’S BLADE, which includes all the short prequel stories for the series, imo. Technically you don’t have to, but I think they provide some really important background that explains how Calaena got to be who and what she is, as well as what is truly at the core of her, beyond the labels she carries.

This book is a terrific mixture of magic, fantasy elements, suspense, action, and romance. It sets up what will become a truly labyrinthine and epic story on a strong foundation. In fact, it’s hard for me to review this book alone, because I immediately went on to the next one! It all feels like one giant story, in which I can’t quite remember which events happened in which book. I’d say that’s a good sign, at least for me.

My only complaint is that the series isn’t finished yet, and it’s going to drive me nuts when I get to the end of the current final book!

Ooh! Before I forget, I LOVE the elves in this universe. But I can’t remember if we actually meet any in this book or not! Don’t worry, there is PLENTY to keep you occupied in THRONE OF GLASS. Ms. Maas really deserves her accolades and popularity. Her writing is really strong, and she creates a reality where there are no shining, perfect heroes, but real characters with real flaws–even though they are unmistakably creatures of a fantasy world! I’m really enjoying this roller coaster ride!
