Olivia works for Archangel, a human run research facility, what they research and study is the paranormal species. While Olivia has hit a rough patch, she gets a handsome and seemingly dangerous fae dumped on her lab table. Will this be the lucky break Olivia needs to get her career and life back on track?

Loren, Prince of the Elves and currently the unconscious species on Olivia’s table suffering from injuries of an almost life long war. When Loren comes to, he’s confused and also distracted by his surroundings and the female occupant that resides in it. Due to the Princes bodily injuries, and lack of blood all he can focus on is Olivia’s pulse in her neck, and one bite tells him this is his eternal mate.

I was a little skeptical in the beginning, I didn’t bother reading the summary that way I wasn’t sitting around expecting something to happen. I am so glad I decided to click on this book, I was first drawn to the cover and the title. Loren and Olivia’s nonexistent/existent relationship had me hooked. I enjoyed the development with with characters and that Olivia wasn’t automatically swept up, although she technically was. Loren tried to use that sort of masculine authoritative air about him, but Olivia was stubborn and tried her best to stick to what she knew. Because Loren and Olivia are eternal mates they are automatically drawn to one another when found, but I was glad to see a courtship and not just an automatic relationship. Like I said before I am definitely hooked, I have already started the second book, I am not sure how far I am going to get into the 15 books of the series but, Heaton has me hooked as of now.

Until next time, keep reading and be sure to Read Th*S!

Synopsis: Jackie Moore, the worse witch in town when it comes to casting spells is placed on a path where she has to help those around her. Aside from Jackie being a poorly chosen witch with spells she does have one ability like no other, her lips. Her lips can cure, heal wounds and illnesses. One night home from work Jackie runs into a stranger, which is not normal in a town of supernatural beings. This stranger, Kyle has succumbed to his desires, the desire to bite and Jackie is his first victim.

Review:  After I read the summary of what was to come, I pretty much thought I knew and figured out everything that would come to pass. I was wrong, this is not just some love story where two people automatically fall for each other for no reason. There is suspense, some thrills a couple of twists and of course romance. Jackie’s character is one that I can respect, she was helpful, friendly and a overall honest person just trying to help out where she could. I enjoyed reading Jackie’s’ inner struggles with her life and then the inner struggles she brought upon herself when she decided to help Kyle. Now Kyle sounds like a cutie, he was head strong and protective as well as understanding, he is not a dominant male character and that is so refreshing. He wants Jackie’s help, but he does not push her to help him nor does he make any over the top possessive scenes in order to persuade Jackie. This read was a breath of fresh air, it did not automatically show that everyone was over the top powerful and yet somehow still got beat by the underdog (don’t get me wrong I love those stories), but it showed multiple sides of learning, some form of training and moments of vulnerability.

This was my first Mandy Rosko book, and I have to say I was very happy with the results, and how fast I fell in love with the characters. I did look into reading the next book, but I am not a huge fan of the changing of characters and story lines from one book to another, but I jut might just give it a try.

How to Invest $50 – $5,000 The Small Investor’s Step-By-Step Plan for Low-Risk Investing in Today’s Economy by Nancy Dunnan

As promised here is the first entry of How, this weeks review is on the, Introduction Chapter – Getting the Most for your Money.

The Introduction chapter included 3 charts, that I would like to share with you today, as well as the fact that it is never to late to begin investing and to get your financial life in order.

Chart 1 – Reading Your Goals – How Saving Can Be Fun

Goal                 Cost                    Target Date            Months To Go             Save Each Month

Ex.  Vacation         $1,000                 7/1/2018                  5                                     $200

Now this chart is very helpful, especially to keep with your financial goals for upcoming events. I found an app that does the same thing and pulls money from a specific account, Digit.

Chart 2 – The Rule of 72

The Rule of 72 is a quick and easy way to know how long it will take for you to double your investments. You divide 72 by the interest rate and you will determine how many years it will take to double your money.

Ex. 72 divided by 7% is 10.30 years.

Chart 3 – The Ten Dumbest Mistakes People Make About Money

  1. Being Ashamed to Invest Small Amounts
  2. Having Inadequate Emergency Savings
  3. Leaving Cash in a Bank Savings Account
  4. Operating Too Many Accounts
  5. Confusing Income with Appreciation
  6. Avoiding Financial Goal Setting
  7. Failing to Diversify
  8. Procrastinating
  9. Ignoring Savings Plans at Work
  10. Failing to Have a Will.

This final chart also had solutions for every mistake that you may have made. The goal is to mark by which mistakes you’ve made and follow through with the solutions. I did not include the solutions, but I will if you guys need me to.

Leave your comment down below and let me know if this was helpful information. I hope, like me, you are all working towards a stable financial future if not for yourself, for your family, and friends. Until next time TH*S readers, make sure to Read TH*S!
