ebook, 394 pages

Amazon (.99 cents)

Wow.
Just wow.
I mean sit down, press your thighs together and hold on to that chair. This book is one of the most amazing adult books I have read in soooooo long. This book beats 50 Shades of Grey's pants off. LITERALLY!

Cat Porter writes adult literature like I am sitting in the room with it occurring. I was sweating through the hot and sexy scenes.

Grace, the main character has a past of rough and bad memories. They still haunt her, though she has gotten them under control. Then her sister becomes very ill and she must return home which will inevitably bring those ghosts back to the surface. One being the biker club that she is a sister of. They protect her like family, but they also bring her in to help them as well. Try as she might to stay neutral and only see her sister, she runs into a man she cannot resist a little tryst with.

Miller is not only a part of the biker club, but so amazingly sexy that Grace cannot leave well enough alone. A night of pleasure could turn in to a very bad decision that multiplies.

Add in the fact that she hasn't seen nor heard from her father in years, creates quite the chaos for Grace.

GO GO NOW and BUY THIS BOOK. It is only 99 cents right now on Amazon!!

Next book in series: Random & Rare

Goodreads Description:
I suppose some of us have to get really dirty before we can become truly clean.

I was allegedly South Dakota’s most famous old lady.
Sixteen years ago I survived my old man’s murder

Never again.
Never again will I surrender my heart.
Never again will I sacrifice to the Club.

But that all changed in one night.

I came home and crashed into him,
and my past and present blew up in my face.
Both of us lonely, running on empty, and unwilling to admit it.

Until now.
Now I feel things I’d forgotten about, want things I’d cut out of my insides.

Love not only stings when you lose it, when it’s ripped away from you.
When it first sinks its teeth in you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep.

I’d forgotten that.

Who holds the keys to betrayal? To suspicion? To trust?
To brotherhood? To family?
To redemption and a bleeding heart?
Right now, I just might.

Warning: This work of fiction contains graphic language, sex, and material some readers may find objectionable.


Review: Contagious by Emily Goodwin

Title: Contagious
Series Contagium #1
Author: Emily Goodwin
Publication Date: Jan 17, 2012
Publisher: Permuted Press

Amazon

This book was my first introduction to Zombies. I am fascinated by them. I have wanted to watch the TV Series Walking Dead, but didn't make it through the first episode due to the gore. Gross. But I am a huge fan of end of the world series. I love the "What would I do" factor. I am also a big fan of strong women characters. And Emily Goodwin does not disappoint.

Orissa is a fabulously strong, resilient and on occasion, humbly female lead. She wakes up after being in the hospital having missed the initial zombie takeover. She is saved and brought into an underground room where the rest of the hospital survivors have survived. But she cannot stay there forever. She has to find her family.

There is a wonderful love triangle in this book as she decides between a smart, handsome man and a ruggedly strong man. Each one with their own virtues and weaknesses.

SERIOUSLY DEVOURED THIS SERIES. One. book. after. another.
So good. So worth the time.

Goodreads Description:
"I wasn’t afraid of death. If I died, it would be over. My worst fear wasn’t of dying, it was of living. Living, while everyone around me had their flesh savagely torn from their bodies to be shoved into the festering and ever-hungry mouths of zombies. It terrified me, right down to my very core, to be alive while the rest of the world was dead."

In the midst of the Second Great Depression, twenty-five year old Orissa Penwell doesn't think things can get any worse. She couldn't be more wrong. A virus breaks out across the country, leaving the infected crazed, aggressive and very hungry.

Orissa will do anything-no matter if it's right or wrong- to save the ones she loves. But when she discovers that most of the world is infected or dead, she must decided if those lives are worth saving at all.






Computer geniuses are awesome

Finally found someone to fix my Mac! I have been without for months and months and it's been killing me. Yes I can blog on my iPad but it's not the same nor near as easy. I have borrowed my husbands pc, but it's also lame. Though as he has stated many times, it is working. Course I never eat bowls of cereal over his laptop. But my laptop is where I live, eat and breath, so it gets spilled on. Unfortunately I may have to remedy that as it was costly and time consuming to fix.

So bring on the book reviews, cover reveals and so much more!!

Cover Reveal: Untaken


Untaken, by J. E. Anckorn
Genre: young-adult, action-adventure, science-fiction
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Date of Publication: October 16th, 2014
Cover Artist: Amy Chitulescu (http://ameliethe.deviantart.com/)
Description:
It turns out that a real alien invasion is nothing like the Sci-fi shows 14-year-old Gracie loves. Not when it’s your own family who are swallowed whole by those big silver ships. Not if it could be you next.
In her search for her family, Gracie meets Brandon, a high school dropout who would never have been caught dead hanging out with a dork like Gracie before the world ended. Gracie isn’t too crazy about Brandon either, but he has one thing she doesn’t: A plan.
Brandon’s uncle has a cabin up in Maine, and If Gracie and Brandon can survive long enough to get there they can hide out until the Space Men pack up their ships and leave.
Until the army guys come to rescue them, says Brandon.
Brandon is big into army guys.
Gracie has to admit that Brandon’s Awesome Plan probably would have worked out great if wasn't for Jake.
They found 5-year-old Jake, laying half-dead under the remains of someone’s ranch house. He’s a good kid, even if he won’t-or can’t- talk.
But Jake has a secret, and when Gracie finds out what it is, the fragile new life they’ve started to forge looks set to break apart.
When the people you’ve been counting on to put the world back together start hunting you down, alien invaders are the least of your worries.
About The Author:
J. E. Anckorn has been an artist and writer ever since she began to surreptitiously doodle on school supplies instead of learning about practical things, like osmosis and mathematics.
After barely surviving a freak mathematical osmosis disaster, she set out to travel the world, living in New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong before returning to her native Britain- just in time to marry an American and leave for the U.S.A. She still failed to learn anything about osmosis, but did manage to cultivate an accent that is unintelligible to almost everyone. (It happened through a mysterious net movement of information from the outside environment into her brain. If only there was a word for that!)
This led to her development of a new language, based almost entirely on polite yet uncomprehending nods. In between these adventures, she has worked as a toy designer, copywriter, and freelance illustrator. She lives in Boston, with a small grumpy dog, and a large, slightly less grumpy husband.

About J.P. Moynahan:
I’m a wilderness guide and mountaineer, musician and poet. I’ve climbed all over North and South America, and played my music throughout. From mission’s work in Mexico, to clinking beers with toothless Canadians, and onto climbing an Andean glacier, I enjoy whatever comes my way.
I’m a mouthy sort with a quick tongue and an even quicker grin. Most folks hate me for the first seven minutes, then fall right in love with my winning personality and straight-toothed smile.
Though I harbor a strong sense of independence, I believe in the strength of a supportive community and tight knit family. I enjoy working with youth and young adults and showing them that staying out of jail isn’t so hard and can even be fun. But I’m not a goody-two-shoes, my head isn’t anywhere near my ass, much less in it.
