New Reads Monday!

Happy Monday Readers,

Welcome to another new read Monday, where I post my latest reads.

Allien Warrior

Alien Warrior by Sadie Carter

Stuck on a military outpost in the middle of nowhere, Zoey had been praying for something to relieve her boredom.
She never dreamed that relief would come in the form of a seven-foot tall, sexy alien. One who claimed she belonged to him.
Delusional.
Except, there was something pulling her to him… a deep, hot attraction she couldn’t deny.
Dexanon Xa’a always thought his mate would be a sweet, obedient female. Instead, the Gods landed him with a maddening, outspoken, outrageous female who didn’t comprehend the honor that had been bestowed on her.
Dex might have a rockin’ body, but his ideas about women needed a total overhaul.
And she was just the woman to do it.

~Amazon~


So far so good. As of late I have been reading a lot of fantasy books, but that’s not completely true as fantasy is always a constant read for me. I do love the way this world is set up, with earth existing and the knowledge of other aliens out in the galaxies it makes for a nice paced read with interesting view points.

Happy Monday readers, what book have you decided to pick up this week?

Naughty Boss by Whitney G.

Naughty Boss

Subject: My Boss.

Have I already told you that I hate my boss today?

Sexy as hell or not, this pompous, arrogant, ASSHOLE asked me to pick up his dry cleaning the second I walked through the door. Then he told me that I needed to take his Jaguar to a car wash that was ten miles outside of the city, but only after I needed to stand in a never-ending line to buy some type of limited, hundred-dollar watch.

I honestly can’t wait to see the look on his face two months from now when I tell him that I’m quitting his company and that he can kiss my ass. KISS. MY. ASS.

All those former fantasies about him kissing me with his “mouth of perfection” or bending me over my desk and filling me with his cock are long over. OVER.

Your bestie,
Mya

PS–Please tell me your day is going better than mine…

Subject: Re: My Boss.

No, you haven’t already told me that you hate your boss today, but seeing as though you’ve sent me this email directly, I know now…

Yes, I did ask you to pick up my dry cleaning the second you arrived to work to day. (Where is it?) And I did tell you to take my Jaguar to the car wash and pick up my thousand-dollar watch. (Thank you for taking five hours to do something that could be accomplished in two.)

You don’t have to wait two months from now to see the look on my face when you tell me you’re quitting. I’m standing outside your office at this very moment. ( Open the door. )

No comment on your “fantasies,” although I highly doubt they’re “long over.”

Your boss,
Michael

PS–Yes. My day is definitely going far better than yours…

A steamy, office-romance novella from New York Times bestselling author, Whitney G. 

~Goodreads Summary~


Short, sweet and to the point, this should be an easy read.

Until next time, be sure to Read THS.

New Reads Monday!

Welcome back readers, once again we are starting our week with a new read.

The Billionaire’s Obsession by J.S. Scott

The Billionaires Obsession

This complete collection of The Billionaire’s Obsession includes: Mine For Tonight, Mine For Now, Mine Forever, Mine Completely

Down-on-her-luck nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely, and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she’s never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems? Or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity?

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants…until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he’s never experienced and definitely doesn’t like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.

This is an erotic romance and is not intended for YA listeners. It contains graphic language, explicit sex, and other subjects not appropriate for YA listeners.

~Goodreads Summary~


Obsession is a nice way to put it. Simon is not only obsessed but a little stalkerish, we’ll see how far his obsessive actions get him before they interfere with this new “relationship.”  Was that a bit of spoiler-y, sorry I’m just a little skeptical.

Bron in Fire

Born In Fire (Fire and Ice Book 1) by K.F. Breene

Winner of the Audiobook Listener’s Choice Award!

Heart pounding and laugh out loud funny, USA Today Bestselling author K.F. Breene will take you on a magical joy ride you won’t soon forget. 

Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn’t the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don’t have many options.

So dangerous or not, the job is mine. And it was going fine, until an old as sin vampire stole my mark, and with it, my pay day.

Knowing I’m poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I’ll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case.

Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire. But without any other jobs coming up, I’m stuck. As I uncover a web of lies and treachery, revealing an enemy I didn’t know existed, the truth of my identity is threatened. I might make it out alive, only to end up in a gilded cage.

Millions Review

Millions (Book 5)  by Pepper Winters

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Publishing Date:

E-book: 300 pages, Audiobook: 11h 4m

Rating: 5/5

Synopsis

Goodreads rating: 4.55 stars

“Tragedy, turmoil, and the ultimate sacrifice. It’s not a question of what I’m willing to sacrifice but who to deserve her…

Can love truly conquer all? Even when so many truths say no?

~Goodreads~


Pepper Winters has done it again. The fifth and final book of the pennies series has finished on a high note, and I must be honest with you guys it took me forever to read this book. I did not want to Pim and Elders journey to end. I tried my best to hold off and not finish the story and well, a chapter of my life.

Pepper Winters has become one of my favorite authors, she’s able to make you swoon, rip your heart out, bite your nails and sit with your jaw open all within the same chapter. That right there ladies and gentlemen takes skill. Now, let’s get down to it.

Pim has been kidnapped, after one of the best times of their lives, she is ripped away from Elder as soon as their lives are beginning. Whom do we have to blame for this? Q. I am telling you guys I was so mad when he decided to pop up and be the hero, he didn’t take out the time to really figure out what was happening, and then on top of all of that he wouldn’t listen, typical. If you can’t tell I hold a sore spot for Q in my heart, I never read Tears for Tess, so this was my first interaction with the characters and I have to say it all started off on a wrong foot.

Pim has finally grown into the woman she was meant to be, she is known to showcase her strength and abilities as well as voice her wants and needs and does just that when she is taken captive. Throughout the story, we are able to read from Pim and Elders perspectives, Pim doing all she can to get free, while Elder does all he can to get to her. Now, isn’t that what we really want? Someone to rescue us when it’s needed, think the world of us, who would also do whatever it took to get them back, talk about a heartthrob. This last book was the perfect ending to a not so perfect story, and I couldn’t think of any other way I’d have their story end.

Well readers, does this sound like a series you would be interested in? Let me know what you think, have you read anything from Pepper Winters, if so which book?

Until next time THS readers, be sure to Read THS!

Eternally Bound

Eternally Bound (The Alliance, Book 1) by Brenda K. Davies

Over the centuries, anything Ronan once found pleasure in has faded away to be replaced with blood, death, and the ever-constant battle not to give in to the more savage side of his vampire nature. Every time he wakes, he questions if that day will be the one he succumbs to the beckoning darkness.

As a born hunter, Kadence has been sheltered from the world for her entire life, never allowed to step beyond the walls of her home. It’s not a life she’s happy with, but it’s one she’s come to accept. Everything changes the day her father is slaughtered by a vampire and she escapes the walls that have kept her caged. 

After she’s attacked by the monster responsible for killing her father, Kadence is unsure how to react when she’s rescued by Ronan. Though raised to hate vampires, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Ronan as she slowly begins to realize that everything she’s been taught over the years may not be true. Now, she must decide what she wants more; Ronan, her family, or the elusive freedom she’s finally found.

Recommended Reading order for The Alliance Series:

Invitation to Eden Book 7

Breaking Free (Invitation to Eden Book 7) by Cathryn Fox

“Cathryn Fox is one of my go-to authors for sexy romance. Her books always make my heart flutter and my pulse race.” – NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely

Spring Break at college is supposed to be a time of fun and parties, but Alaska Rossi, AKA Janey Smith, is on lockdown thanks to her father’s mafia dealings. She wants only to party down with the rest of her classmates. At least her hot, darkly mysterious bodyguard— deep undercover as her dorm’s resident assistant—gives her something to fantasize about during her boring nights in confinement.

When Alaska wins a campus radio contest, and is gifted with a special invitation to an exclusive island, she knows it’s her chance to break free. After all, Eden is a place where no one knows her name, so what danger could possibly come to her? But when danger appears in the form of a masked man who takes control of all her pleasures, tapping into her darkest fantasies, she begins to wonder if her undercover lover, and the mysterious bodyguard who’s deep undercover, are one in the same…

(New Adult, new experiences sexy romance, contemporary romance, alpha hero, biker, falling in love, escaping the past, beach read.)

Happy National Book Lovers Day!!

 

Happy National Book Lovers Day!

Of course, we don’t need a national day to talk about how much we love reading, or the newest books we’ve read, or even our continuously growing tbr lists. But, it is nice to see that reading is big enough to be recognized alongside other “national” holidays such as pancake day, hot dog day, boyfriend/girlfriend day and so on. So here’s to all of you readers out there, now…back to reading.

Until next time, Read THS!

Free E-book Friday

Hey TH*S readers, it’s Friday!

HyDfNCZlTn5iU.gif

This weeks Free E-book Friday special genre is Fantasy. This week I decided to provide the summary/synopsis along with one book from different vendors, because who doesn’t love free books? I figured giving you all a bunch of books that I’ve read the synopsis on and found interesting, but not providing it for you guys makes it difficult to know if you want to choose the books or not. Below you will find three different companies, with one book, the site will be linked, and the authors page will be linked to their names as well, and as promised the synopsis of the story so you can hopefully come to the same conclusion that I have. Free books, with good summaries do nothing but increase your TBR lists.

 Jade Calhoun Series Boxed Set by Deanna Chase
Synopsis
Haunted on Bourbon Street, Witches of Bourbon Street, Demons of Bourbon Street

Book four Angels of Bourbon Street is due out in May of 2013
Haunted on Bourbon Street
Jade loves her new apartment–until a ghost joins her in the shower.
When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord.
Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need Kane’s help–and he’s betrayed her with a secret of his own–to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?
Witches of Bourbon Street
Jade Calhoun was never fond of her empath abilities. Now she’s discovered she has another gift she’d rather not unwrap–magic. But when her mentor, Bea, becomes gravely ill and insists Jade’s the only one who can help, she’s forced to embrace her witchy side.
It’s too bad she spent a decade shunning the magical community and never learned to harness her powers. Because time’s run out. A trapped spirit has revealed a clue to Jade’s long-lost mother. The resident angel has gone rogue and disappeared with Jade’s boyfriend, Kane. And if that wasn’t enough, her ex appears to be possessed.
To save any of them, Jade will need to find a way to control her inner white witch–without succumbing to black magic. Otherwise, she’ll lose everything…including her soul.
Demons of Bourbon Street
New Orleans coven leader, Jade Calhoun, is embarking on a Hellish mission. Literally. A week ago her ex sacrificed himself to Hell in order to save Jade’s mother. While he suffers, Jade will stop at nothing to bring him home…even if it means working with Lailah, an angel she’s never trusted.
But the stakes are raised when Jade discovers her boyfriend, Kane, is marked by a demon. The very same one who tried seducing him right before Jade’s eyes. Now Kane’s life is on the line, and consequently, Jade’s soul is compromised. She’ll need all the help she can get, including Lailah’s, as she fights her way through Hell to save her ex and Kane—and her entire existence.

Mace and Raven are given a mission to stop a catastrophic event. With his halfling abilities still untapped, Vine is allowed to join the mission, but only as a spectator.

 Bound by a Dragon by Linda K. Hopkins
What is a dragon without a maiden?

Keira is content in her small, medieval village – well, sort of. Her mother is pressing her to marry, but her suitors are less than desirable. So when handsome Aaron Drake arrives in the village and sets his sights on Keira, she cannot help but be interested.
But Aaron is not the only new arrival in the area – a fire-breathing dragon has also taken up residence in the mountains, not far from the remote alpine castle that Aaron calls home. Keira finds Aaron intriguing, but there is clearly more to him than meets the eye, for why would a man of wealth, intelligence and charm forgo life in the city and choose to live in a remote mountain village, with a dragon as his nearest neighbor?
Awarded the Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion, Bound by a Dragon, the first book in The Dragon Archives, will sweep readers far from the modern world into a world of castles, medieval markets and fantastical romance.

Comicpalooza May 25-27, 2018 Experience

20180525_1301152471454092776627083.jpg

2018 Comicpalooza held in Houston Texas is where I normally spend my Memorial Day weekend, this was my 8th year attending the convention and I can not wait until next years. This year I met and spoke with different authors, actors, and costume designers all wanting to share just how much they love what they do and how they took the chance and went after their dreams.

img_11514643445259270446832.jpg

Orlando Jones and I. He was very pleasant to talk to, had tons of stories to share with us, and constantly had everyone laughing. His stories were out of this world, some of them I would have never in my wildest dreams thought up myself.

img_11528113359340326548059.jpg

Ross Marquand, my mom and I. Super laid back guy, we literally talked about random stuff and also mentioned what movies we’ve yet had time to see, mine being Infinity Wars (don’t start with me, I have my reasons.).

20180527_162953805984331320592512.jpg

Ruth Carter, the costume designer for Black Panther. We were able to sit in on her panel and boy was it awesome. Very eye opening to hear where she started and how hard she worked to get to where she is. I was able to get her autograph, and take pictures with her, can anyone saw black girl magic? Super inspiring to hear and see Ruth Carters history, and way of thought for the production of Black Panther, and to know that we can all acomplish the same things she has.

My Comicpalooza purchases, all products were signed by the authors, and all authors are new to me. I love trying out new authors and sharing them with all of my readers, hopefully there will be some reviews on these new guys soon.
