Book Review: Fracture (Midnight Ice #3)

 

Fracture TeaserWhen you fall for the devil, you’re bound to get burned.

Pandora Scott’s world has blown up once again, but this time she’s learned her lesson–saving the world isn’t a job she can do solo. She needs friends. But when her strongest ally also happens to be the boy who shattered her heart, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Especially since the person she has to destroy might just be the love of her life. With her fate hanging in the balance, Pandora’s got to make a choice. Forgive? Forget? Fight? Or falter? But everything changes when she realizes that the people she thought were heroes might be villains, and the good guys aren’t always as trustworthy as they seem…

Fracture is the third book in the thrilling Midnight Ice series–the brand new spinoff to Midnight Fire, a bestselling paranormal romance with over 200,000 copies sold and over 5000 5-star reviews on Goodreads!

My Review

Amazing! This is how I would describe the third installment in the Midnight Ice series.  A turn to the story that is almost unbelievable. It is more than I would have ever imagined and expected. We have a more determined Pandora, on the verge of discovering her true identity and how to tap into all her power. I cannot tell you too much, as I would spoiler the previous parts, unfortunately.

But this time she is not alone. If in “Frost” she is on the run, trying to survive, alone and not willing to trust, in “Fracture” Pandora has allies, friends, people she can count on. She cannot finish this without them.  She is stronger and dedicated to her cause. She is spectacular!

“You look like crap.”

Naya didn’t bother to move except to arch a single pointed brow, amber eyes flashing. “Let’s see how you do after a few weeks of torture. I’m happy to start right now.”

In this book we have this struggle, this fight between good and bad, right or wrong, light and dark at its finest. It is incorporated at so many levels. Is Sam trying to clean his soul for Pandora? Are the titans good or bad? Do their actions have good or bad intentions behind or the desire to prove they are these mighty creatures? Is Pandora innocent or guilty? Did she determine Sam going bad? So many questions arise and somewhere in the middle of the book I wanted to find out more. I wanted to go deeper with every page.

Looking back to the other two books, I stopped to wonder if this series has gone a long way, if the characters have matured, if the action is the same of it has evolved. Well definitely yes. Everything is now different, everything is now so much complex. So yes, you will not get tired of the same old Pandora and her doubts.  Kaitlyn Davis is an auto buy author for me, she is fantastic. She has this gift of mixing words with feelings and emotions just to create memorable stories.

Forgiveness is about releasing the pain, releasing the blocks in your own heart, releasing anything and everything that is stopping you from being happy. But forgetting is something else entirely. And, well, whether you do or you don’t, that’s up to you.

An obvious amount of 5 stars and I do recommend the series – In case you haven’t figured that out. Start with book one, which is just 0.99 $ for a limited time only. If there ever was a series I wanted to see as a movie, this would be it! But on second thought, I’m not sure the movie would give justice to the way it’s written. Ok, I’m shutting up now J Happy reading!

P.S.: This quote describes it perfectly:

This isn’t my first time saving the world, and if there’s anything my past experience has taught me, it’s laugh whenever you get the chance. You never know what shit-storm is going to come next.

Meanwhile, as the director pulls her farther into his web of lies, Merritt breaks with her longstanding boyfriend and begins a steamy relationship with hunky attorney Israel Goodspeed, whose brother works for the director.

My Review

Oh, a mystery that has gripped me from the start. I am not sure why I don’t read much of these stories, but this particular book was all to my liking. I was intrigued from the blurb and so happy to find out it was definitely a time well spent while reading. Meritt Saxe answer her boss’ request to come pick him up and finds herself caught up in a murder that puts her in a very undesirable position. She tells her story about how she had to deal with a secret, all the while trying to find her happiness and regain a balance in life.

 What made me like the book even more was the tone of the narration. Merritt’s voice is like listening to a friend confessing her secret, simple and even regretful at times. The difference between the innocent and young PR specialist and the mature character that relates the events is well defined. We see her struggle to prove herself in a rather aggressive world – working in the prison system is not a difficult job, especially for a woman.

The Romance blends beautifully with the thriller side of the story. I believe the author did a wonderful job combining the two, so that the story never leaves its focus. Merritt and Israel’s relationship is under the same painful secret and she will struggle if she should trust him or not.

All in all, I am really pleased with “The Alibi”. It is a great book for fans of crime and thriller, but as well for romance lovers. This is my first book by Marilyn Baron, but I’ve heard so many great things about her writing and our current story is a proof of that. She is definitely an author worth following. Enjoy !

Audiobook Review: Corruption

Author: Adam Vine

Narrator: Kevin Meyer

Series: Corruption Cycle, Book One

Length: 13 hours 57 minutes

Publisher: Lilydog Books

Released: July 18, 2017

Genre: Dark Fantasy

A dishonored swordsman running from his past.

A city shrouded in dark magic.

An antihero born.

Daniel Harper was champion, until a single mistake destroyed his fencing career forever. With nothing left to lose, he flees to Eastern Europe, where he can start over… where he can be someone else.

In the exotic, lantern-lit crevices of a nameless city, Daniel meets two people who open very different kinds of doors than the ones he is searching for: the troubled flower girl Kashka, who holds the key to a nightmarish otherworld; and the enigmatic street magician and self-professed love tourist Ink, who has the power to bend others to his will.

As Daniel plummets into a downward spiral of hedonism and dereliction, he is tormented by macabre visions of a frozen world in endless darkness where an evil tyrant has stolen the sun, where humanity’s remnants fight to scrape out a cruel existence underground, and wandering spirits inhabit the bodies of the recently deceased. Daniel is doomed to return to this Night Country every time he falls into a deep sleep. But the longer he spends there, the more Daniel realizes his curse is anything but an accident….

 

Adam Vine was born in Northern California. By day, he is a game writer and designer. He has lived in four countries and visited thirty. He is the author of two novels and many short stories. When he is not writing, he is traveling, reading something icky, or teaching himself to play his mandolin. He currently lives in Germany.

Another great book by Adam Vine and to be honest, I was not expecting anything less. Actually, the story exceeded my expectations on so many levels.

Let’s start bay talking a little about the blurb. I believe it does not express the full complexity of the story very well. We have so many interesting facts and so many things that aliment our intellect and so many situations that require our attention.  The author has created a story narrated on three dimensions: the real world, where our main character has a job and tries to figure out his life, a fantastic dimension where heroes fight for survival, where life is anything but boring and a story that develops in verse. These three plans will come together beautifully and will form this adventure that will keep you wrapped up for quite a while.

Daniel Harper is apparently your average young man, trying to make a living, get over a traumatic past and hoping for a better future, nothing out of the ordinary at all. He goes out, he drinks, he fails on picking up girls in bars. But he has so much potential when surrounded by the right kind of people. Daniel, as well as the other characters, is one developed personality.

Let’s not forget the mystery surrounding the worlds and how Adam Vine decided to base his story in County, in the City. Country is a county (didn’t expect that, did you? 😀 ) in Europe, we do not have its name explicitly, but there are some hints here and there that  can offer an idea. This is such an interesting concept and this just adds to the uniqueness of “Corruption”.

The narration was ok as well, even though Kevin Meyer does not do a great job when voice acting. Most of the characters sounded the same, but the emotions were well transmitted. He would laugh if a character laughed, or sound desperate if the case. So for that he has my deep appreciation.

I feel my review does little to show how exceptional this book is. I feel I have not done justice to the characters, but I do hope you will give “Corruption” a try. Moreover, I encourage you to give Adam Vine as an author a try. He is… a revelation. A breath of fresh air! Thank you Jess for this amazing tour and thank you Adam for sharing your story with us ! Oh, and please stop by to the other bloggers participating in this tour. There is a great interview with Adam and some many other fun facts 🙂

Audiobook Review: Acer

Author: Lilly Atlas

Narrators: Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard

Series: No Prisoners, Book Three

Length: 9 hours 53 minutes

Publisher: Lilly Atlas Books LLC

Released: July 17, 2017

Genre: MC Romance

After one unforgettable night with a dangerous outlaw, Fia knows she must limit contact with the kind of man who could never fit in her wealthy circle. Unfortunately, she can’t keep their brief but passionate encounter far from her thoughts. When she seeks him out for reasons unrelated to their chemistry, the worst happens, and Fia is attacked by a madman. With her life turned upside down, she seeks help from the one person she can’t get out of her mind.

Betrayed by someone he should have been able to trust above all, Acer spends the next two decades of his life avoiding entanglements that have any chance of ending with a knife in his back. The MC life provides a safe way to have personal connections and loyalty due to its simple rule: betray the club and punishment will be severe. Still, he keeps a large part of himself locked away inside, hidden even from his MC brothers. When the woman who’s been messing with his head for months reappears in his life needing sanctuary, Acer jumps to her aid. He’s committed to help her reclaim her life, but determined to keep her at arms-length in the process.

As Acer and Fia fight their growing feelings, his club is in danger from a new and different kind of enemy. Will his refusal to put his full trust in anyone, including the woman he’s falling for, end up destroying more than betrayal ever could?

What a wonderful audiobook! And I mean the audio was great and the book as well. I enjoyed every chapter of it and i am sorry that I’ve discovered the series starting with book no. 3.

Acer and Fia meet at a fancy party, where both did not seem to enjoy that much. That is until they land their eyes on each other. And the best way to improve a boring night is to have a one night stand, an unforgettable one night stand. We quickly learn that neither of them seems to meet their parents’ expectations. Probably that’s why their attraction is so intense. Well, never mind! In the morning, both will go their separate way. However, Fia finds herself in search for Acer when she finds out his father is out to get him. Tragedy strikes and she will need all the moral support she can get. And the only person she can trust is Acer, her savior.

The most important thing to mention is that this book deals with rape, our main character is a victim, so trigger warning for that. However, the author has presented her situation in a magnificent way.  She had managed to capture Fia’s fears, her trusting issues and her nightmares. Acer finds a way to break her walls and wins her confidence. He will become her strength pillar, all the while being well aware that, when she’ll recover, hen her true explosive self will be back healed, she will get back to her life and family. Also, the hate and desire for revenge are well captured. For me, this entire situation is the center of the story, since the romance is built around it.

Fia and Acer are a match for sure. They are both trying to be independent, to be as far as possible from the life they were born into. Adam Wellington has been betrayed by his own father and as a consequence he has become part of the No Prisoners MC, where he now has a true family, a true brotherhood. Serafina Caldwell is a lingerie designer! Her parents could never associate their name with such an obscene business. So Adam and Serafina become Acer and Fia, perfect for each other.

The narration is great! The way in which both narrators complemented each other was amazing. Erin DeWard has done s great job in expressing Fia’s emotions, her insecurities, her panic attacks, while Noah Michael Levine was the perfect voice for a strong male figure. I would have enjoyed the book just as much, but the audio version is really great.

So i cannot give less than 5 stars for Lilly Atlas’ “Acer”, and even if the ending was a little rushed, I loved it a lot! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the “No Prisoners” series!

Book Review: The Real Thing

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—

but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?

THE REAL THING
Sugar Lake #1
Melissa Foster
Releasing Sept 5, 2017
Montlake

 

Bakery
owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit
complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a
reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend
material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before
college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade
later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?
 
Zane should
have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows
her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means
cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is
the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.
 
Now Zane
and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet
temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their
fake engagement or the real thing—including them.
**THE REAL
THING is being published by Montlake (an Amazon imprint) and won’t be available
on other ebook retailers, but you can download a FREE ereader app to read
it HERE, order the paperback.
 

My Review:

I literary jumped at the opportunity to read a book by Melissa Foster that would be the first in a series. I have read some others by her, but I always got involved in the second or last book. It’s ok, just that I hadn’t had that feeling of knowing everything there is to know about the characters, be those main or not. So here I am, reviewing the first book of the “Sugar Lake” series.

Zane and Willow come together by means of a lie. Zane is back collecting on a favor he did for Willow in college, when she asked him to take her virginity. And how could he refuse her? She was his best friend’s sister, a pretty hot sister I might add. Now he’s back asking her a favor in return. Zane has become this big actor, hunting for a role in a romantic comedy and looking to clean up his reputation. The best way to do that is to show the media he is a serious guy, involved in a serious relationship, with a nice girl from a small town. But what to do when the lie becomes truth?

Willow has trusted Zane even since college, when she decided he was the one to offer her the lovely memories of the first night with a boy. Their invisible bond has always been there since that time and once they are united again, sparks become full flames. Still, when Zane realizes she is the one for him, he must fight for her trust with all his weapons. There are issues no be solved between them, she is not willing to leave her bakery, he has a successful career in Los Angeles. The way they connect, their interaction, this is what kept me reading this book until the end.

This was a quick read for me. I didn’t even know when time flew by. I was right there with the characters, I suffered with them and felt the butterflies again. I am giving this book 5 stars with all the love of reading! And this is my favorite, out of all of Melissa Foster’s series. I think the writing for this one is really amazing! Please give it a go if you are a Romance addict like me! Enjoy J

Book Review: Soul Awakening

About the book:soul

Title: Soul Awakening

Author: Paul Lonardo

Published: May 24th 2017 by Inkspell Publishing, LLC

Source: received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Format: ebook

Blurb:

Something otherworldly is happening in a small Texas town.

As a small Texas town mourns the tragic death of its high school football star, Alecia is struggling to adjust to life without the boy she has dated since sixth grade and thought she would be with forever.

When Braden comes to her as an apparition, she finds herself falling for Riley, Braden’s best friend and teammate. Has Braden returned to spy on her, or for some other reason?

Alecia’s not sure, but she soon realizes she must find a way to accept Braden’s death and welcome love back into her life, or risk losing everything.

The Power of Secret Love changes everything…

Check it on: Amazon  & Goodreads

My Review:

It’s incredible how, in less than 70 pages I managed to cry, be enraged and hope again for and with the main character. the author did such a great job with Alecia and her emotions, that everything she was going through managed to reach me – the reader.

After her boyfriend’s death, Alecia feels lost and more alone than ever. She and Braden have been together since sixth grade, they shared a numerous amount of moments, some of which she remembers throughout the book. She has a very difficult time accepting his passing and only when Braden’s spirit appears, she starts focusing on life again. A love that reaches from beyond to help her living and hoping again. I loved it!

Alecia will become moral support for Riley, Braden’s best friend. She will help him move on from his grief and guilt and encourage him not to give up on his dreams. Riley on the other hand will be the only one to understand her loss, he will be the only one she could talk to. With a mother unable to comprehend her daughter’s feelings, Alecia will have to lean on her boyfriend’s ghost and his best friend.

Paul Lonardo’s story has a very powerful message. One can still hope for the best after a terrible loss. One should honor that person’s memory, by living a life in the most beautiful way possible.

Suffice to say “Soul Awakening” deserves my 5 stars. I was so lucky to have received a complimentary copy in exchange for my review and I cannot wait to read more by this author.

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers #4
Addison Cole
Releasing Aug 23, 2017

 

 
Jessica
Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and
practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she
escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in
Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to determine if she is living life to the fullest or
missing it altogether.
 
For the
first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world,
billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape
and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his
plans.
 
From the
moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused
Jamie can think of little else than sweet, smart, and alluring Jessica, and
Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s
business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he
proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make
matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is,
turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal
information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his
heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

My Review:

This book had me from the very first page. I loved the writing so much! It was fun, crazy at times and it’s a story of coming together, building a relationship. It’s great for a summer read, it’s great if you are a romantic or a dreamer, it’s just great anyway!

Let me start by mentioning that it’s my first book in the series (quite unhappy for that) and while I had no problem understanding the story, it was a little bit difficult to get to know all the previous couples and the connections between them. This was the only part were I struggled a little.

Our main characters meet while both are taking some time away from their jobs. Somehow, most of the romance happens when you take time away from work J Jamie is a self-made billionaire, looking from some time away from his company and wanting to spend more time with family and friends. Jessica is a musician, looking to decide if this is really what she wants to do in life. If the first always had time for business, never for family, the second always worked to fulfill their expectations. But summer is all about letting go and falling in love J

They slowly build a relationship that will soon become more than they expected. But what to do when reality knocks on your door? Will you risk anything for something that may or may not be true? This is what our characters will have to decide. Their faith and trust in their feelings will be put to trials.

As I was mentioning, I was grabbed from the very first pages. The opening scene, were Jamie and Jessica meet is a laugh-out-loud and the attraction between them is pretty much obvious. We have here an amazing writer! But you already Knew that…

All in all, 5 stars and an encouragement to read the book, and the series (which is something I have to do as well! ). Jump in with your comments and thoughts!
