Review:

Just going to say it now, when  I started this story I did not know it was a werewolf related story. And I loved that, that aspect was not thrown at you. We get a little taste right in the beginning, but it is one of those things I didn’t pay much mind to. I was to caught up with Cammie getting away.  To protect her best friends daughter.

The story skips ahead eight-teen years, we find ourselves picking up with the daughter Cammie’s best friend. Genesis, who just finished high school, thinking she has her whole life ahead of her. Oh boy was she wrong. The night of her last day of school she goes to a graduation party with her best friend, while there she goes for a walk with the host and classmate Chuck. Now I’m not going to lie, but when they went on this walk I was thinking that Chuck was a creep and up to something. Glade to say he wasn’t, and a little sad for him in same aspect that Genesis turned him down.

After turning Chuck down, Genesis takes off into the woods she looses her sense of direction causing her to become loss in the woods. While try to get her bearings and find her way back to the party, she is attacked by wolves. But luck is kind of on her side when a third wolf comes to her rescue. With everything that is going on she so scared for her life that she transformers into a wolf. Then everything goes black for her. When She wakes up she encounter man, that she doesn’t know and right off the back she has a weird attraction to him, but pushing that aside all she can think about is getting back to her aunt. Once she gets away from the man who saved her and makes her way back to her aunt. All hell literally breaks loose.  Someone close to her is shot and with that Genesis is thrown into world she never knew was more than just a myth and finding a family she never knew she had.

Now was I real enjoyed about this story was it was not a typical werewolf romance story. You know the ones that I’m talking about, where the girl spots a handsome guy who happens to  catch her scent on a gust of wind, and goes crazy trying to convince her to love him, give it a chapter or two and their all over each other. No the romance in this story does play major part, but to me takes a backseat to Genesis figuring out her new role in this world. So much so that she push her feeling and love to the back burner, until she has proven her self as a wolf and also receives her fathers blessing. I found that very endearing to her character growth. The biggest plot of the story is finding the rouge wolf who not only killed some dear to her heart but has be tormenting her since. It was interesting watching her work out the the difference between vengeance and justice. And this is something that people can learn from, not letting emotions cloud what wrong and right.

I gave this story three stars on goodreads.com because it ended with a cliff hanger. I would have loved it if the story just for quick second switch to a characters point of view so we could know what they were thing at the end of book one before ending. But besides that I truly enjoyed this part of Genesis story and can not wait to see what happens next.

Steal Me by Natalia Banks

Blurb:
🔥 Carter 🔥
A surreal experience like no other.
The formula is always the same. Give the client exactly what they’re looking for. No more, No less. A pure hedonistic escape from the monotony of everyday life.

It all changes when I see her. Something in the way she’s looking up at me, a hunger far beyond the physical.
I’m not even allowed to know her name, but when she stops me at the door before I leave and whispers, “I’m Kat, Kathleen Le Fleur” those words burn hot into my memory.
I don’t do girlfriends, but for the first time in my life, I need to find her….
F*ck the rules!
——
🌺 Kat 🌺
An experience.
A mind-blowing, heart-pounding, once-in-a-lifetime experience. And I signed up for it.
Steal me, take me away to a destination of my choice
And I wanted it.
What the hell do I have to lose, other than my inhibitions?
I’ve never come close to experiencing that level of intensity. Raw, masculine power.
I’m hooked. I have to see him again, I’ll do whatever it takes to find him.
He’s more, so much more.
I can’t get enough.
I’m aching, craving one more taste, touch, anything!
But something tells me it’s over.
For one of us

Yet soon it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past.

Book Review:Sin Eater The Aria Knight Chronicles By Alesha Escobar, Samantha LaFantasie

35216564Title: Sin Eater

Author: Alesha Escobar, Samantha LaFantasie

Available: on Kindle and Paperback

 

Synopsis:

Aria Knight has an unusual set of skills: she will hold back the hounds of Hell so that you can fly toward the Pearly Gates, and she will wipe your slate clean so you don’t become karma’s bitch…for a price.

A sin eater has to make a living in today’s world somehow.

But when she’s called in the dead of night to perform her rite for a recluse billionaire, she stumbles upon a murder scene, and the evidence points to her.

In an attempt to clear her name and uncover the true culprit, Aria is forced to team up with a private investigator who’s possessed by three spirits and a handsome wizard who would rather see all sin eaters like Aria go extinct.

Aria knows her job is never easy, but now, it’s become downright deadly.

Review:

Can anyone guess what I’m going to say. I LOVE MULTIPLE POINTS OF VIEW. And the author, to me did this perfectly. From the moment I saw it was different points of view, I could wait to see how their story crossed paths. I was pleasantly surprised how they were all woven together.

We start with Aria, with her sin eating and wanting more out of her long life. She ends up following a path that lands her being put under arrest. That has her coming across Harry Storm, who is a PI on the trail of Jacob Wolfe a wizard who works in the mayors office. Both Aria and Harry are hired by the same “mystery man”. Harry to watch Jacob and Aria to perform the final rights of a dying man. With these jobs they cross paths. Now Jacob turns out to be the third point of view. And he I would say is the middle of the growing conflict that is building between those with magic and those without.

When all three path are finally combined, we get more of each backstory that lead them to where they are and why they have to work together to solve the problems at hand. And oh boy when they finally figure out who is pulling all their strings and who is behind the murders and attacks that are happening around their city.

And major plot twist, when we find out who is really pulling the strings and why. I really wanted to side with them. ::jazz hands:: Crazy turn of events. People are kidnapped, some are killed, some end up with powers, and some feelings start to come up.

So all and all I’m recommending this to anyone who is in magical, dark mystery filled joy ride you should read Sin Eater available in both Paperback and Kindle

 

Kids who don’t read and parents who are okay with it.

At twenty-nine I’ve encountered a lot, must I get and some I don’t. The one thing I do not under stand is parents who don’t encourage their children to read. I know people on either side of this. Those who encourage reading and those who don’t. The one with children who love to read you can sit and have a conversation with them. And when they get on a topic of something they enjoy, about something they have read. Their eyes light up with excitement. I know children who have to be read list as long as mine, if not longer. Children who where you say lets go to the library or bookstore and their all for it.

But on the other hand I know parents, who claim that their child just don’t like to read. That they as parents they can’t get them to even pick up the books they should read for school. This past week alone I had a parent ask me to read and write a report for her daughter who is entering her sophomore year of high school. You can guess my answer to that.  I just don’t get it, how as parent your okay with your child having no interest. And yes I know not all in things revolve around books, but when you are into something don’t you want to know more about it.

Then it dawns on me. You can’t encourage something when you don’t do it yourself.

So I’m going to end my vent there because I ‘m have to get ready for work, but I woke up with this on my mind.

I would like to know others thoughts on this parents or otherwise
