Review: Although I was happy to get this book and read it. It was not anything really new or worth wild to the series. Most of the short stories are already in some of the Reaper books right now and the rest of the short stories were pretty uneventful and did not add anything to the overall plot of the two series nor to the characters either.

Although I will keep reading the series, I don’t think I will get anymore Novella’s for the series.

Summary: From the “New York Times” bestselling author of the “Reapers Motorcycle Club” and “Silver Valley” series comes an anthology of extras and never-before-released material, including a new short story featuring fan favorites Horse and Marie.

Charming Bastard: A Novella I first met Riley Boone when I was four years old. We moved to Callup, Idaho after my dad blew out his back and had to go on disability. Boonie’s family lived next to ours. Every afternoon he’d swagger off the school bus after kindergarten like a conquering king. For the first week he ignored me, until I impressed him by climbing nearly thirty feet up in the tree behind his trailer. They had to call the fire department to get me down, but it was worth it to see the respect in his five-year-old eyes. He gave me a worm in honor of my accomplishment. I fell in love. The next day he made me eat the worm and our relationship has been complicated ever since.

(Until now, this novella has been exclusively available in the paperback edition of “Silver Bastard.”)

Sticky Sweet: A Short Story Horse and Marie met for the first time in “Reaper’s Property.” Now experience this moment through his eyes. (Originally available on the author’s website.)

“NEW” Skunked: A Short Story Marie has some BIG news to share with Horse-news that will change both their lives forever….

“NEW” Sugar and Spice: A Short Story A prequel to “Reaper’s Fall,” this story features Painter and Melanie’s first meeting.

PLUS: Becca’s Huckleberry Pie recipe, Marie’s Bread recipe and Emergency Skunk Cleaning recipe.

Review of Me Before You (Me Before You #1) by Jojo Moyes

Me Before You (Me Before You #1)  by Jojo Moyes

17347634

Review: I never thought I would be able to write a review for this book. Never though I could look at it again. To feel all the things it left with me when I put it down. I ignored that it existed, that I ever happened to read it. That I fell so deeply in love with the characters and the words. I never thought I would be able to pick up the book again or to think of it again and not cry my heart out. I have many books that have made me cry since I have found my passion for reading, but for this one in particular. I cried and lost a piece of my soul to this book, to these characters. So much so, that I could not even think of anything relating to this book for months or anything close to it. But here I am writing this to my viewers, to the world, about how this book changed me…

It all started when I the preview for the movie of Me Before You was released, I was hooked. I could not stop watching it over, and  over, and over again. To the point  that in one day I called and went to ten different bookstore or places that also sold books to get my hands on a copy. The day I picked it up, I stopped at nothing to read the whole thing. I had errands to run, so I ran them but ended up sitting in my car at the store parking lot reading for an hour. Before realizing  what I was doing, But that point I had given up on my day and went home to finish reading.

When I first started reading this book, all I could think was “wow, this is so different then what I normally read. I hope I still like the book.” I ended up falling head over heels for Louisa Clark and Will Traynor, their characters unlike anything I had ever experienced before. Along with the plot, that had me questioning my own opinions and morals.

By the time I got to the last half of the book, I was still going strong, meaning no tears as of yet. Till I got to one part that I will not mention, unless you ask me privately. but there was this one shinning moment that was so happy and full of love and hope, and then Will says this thing and then everything was broken. I was broken. From that moment on, I could barely read a couple of words before loosing my self to a sobbing mess. It took me a couple more hours to finally finish the book, and crying out the rest of the water in my body. Along with a sobbing phone call to my best friend ( where I barely made any sense to her, but she still got that it was about this book). And many weeks to months later that, even now its still hard to breath and to keep my eyes dry when thinking or talking about this book.

So if you want to have your life changed, heart ripped from your chest, soul sucked right out of you. This is the book for you.

Summary: Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair-bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A love story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

Review of The Unidentified Redhead (Redhead #1) by Alice Clayton

The Unidentified Redhead (Redhead #1)  by Alice Clayton

Review: I only picked up this book because I have read Alice Claytons other series WallBanger and love so much! But I was very disappointed that Unidentified Redhead lacked humor and the sexiness that I had come to know as Claytons writing. I don’t think I will finish the rest of the series or buy any of them, because of how hard it was to get through this book. Although I do look forward to any new books coming from Alice Clayton, such as Nut’s.

Summery: When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actor, it’s a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best friend and agent, that dream could become a reality, but at thirty-three, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? Will an enexpected sizzling romance with the entertainment industry’s newest ‘it’ boy shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life?

Alice Clayton spins a playful and erotic May to December romance in this, her debut novel. Clayton’s funny, borderline neurotic heroine is perfect in her imperfections, and the off the charts sexual chemistry between her and her charming, yet blissfully unaware leading man are the true heart of The Unidentified Redhead. With laugh out loud dialogue and a super steamy romance that will get your heart racing, sneaking around in L.A. and dodging the Paparazzi has never been so fun.

Review of Devil’s Game By Joanna Wylde

Devil’s Game (Reapers MC #3)  by Joanna Wylde

18693621

Review: The book covered a lot of what happened in the last one, just from Em’s view point. Which was good, because I guess ALOT went down that we did not know. This book was easier for me to read than the other ones because I could relate in age and thought wise to Em.
But let me tell you Wylde sets you up for a nice guy ( I feel that way) , that Liam ( Hunter) might be. NOPE.
But it is all good by the end of the book. Which was every satisfying in many ways.

Summary: Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies-the Reapers-using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her.

Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger-a man who isn’t afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn’t afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One.

Or so she thinks.

Review: This book had me laughing my butt off, before the first chapter was done. Chole and Bennett have some much chemistry between them, I was surprised how they could be in the same room together and not go nuts and tare off each others all the time Wink, Wink. I had a great time reading this book the character development was great and the characters didn’t have to give up what they wanted from life, which was a great plus. Also the characters switched point of views every chapter, so it was great to see the same situation from them and what they were thinking and feeling and what they were going to do next.

Summary: An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate–and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative–completely infuriating–creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules–or outright smash them–if it means he can have her. All over the office.

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.

Beautiful Stranger (Beautiful Bastard #2)  by Christina Lauren

Review: Good follow up to Beautiful Bastard, and had nice fluff in it. The book has enough plot and depth to it that it keeps you reading, but by the end you are fine where it leaves you. It also had nice moments when the characters from Beautiful Bastard appeared and had their own input. The only thing that was a little weird was erotica, but that’s to be expected. No erotica is ever smooth or not comfortable to read. Overall the book was a nice filler and I’m looking forward to the rest in the series.

Summary: Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon’s moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night’s fun. But the manner—and speed—with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.

The whole city knows that Max Stella loves women, not that he’s ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it’s not until Sara—and the wild photos she lets him take of her—that he starts wondering if there’s someone for him outside of the bedroom.

Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private. – Summary from Goodreads.com

Review of The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #1) by Erika Johansen

The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #1) by Erika Johansen

Review: I was super stocked to read this book, I have heard so much hype about it. I was not disappointed. It does take a while ( a chapter) to pick up the pace, but once it gets rolling there is no stopping or slowing down the plot.  Even long after the book had ended, I was still thinking of things that could happen next or how Kelsea would change and fix her kingdom. Its hard to describe this book because of the intertwining plot that is shown from many different points of view. Normally this would be annoying , but Johansen is able to make it one of the highlights of the book.

Although the biggest problem in the book was not solved and now we have to wait till the next book to see if it will. The plot is able to stay afloat and have enough substance to continue on.

 Recommend borrowing this book from a friend or the Library.

Summary: On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon—from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic—to prevent her from wearing the crown.

Despite her royal blood, Kelsea feels like nothing so much as an insecure girl, a child called upon to lead a people and a kingdom about which she knows almost nothing. But what she discovers in the capital will change everything, confronting her with horrors she never imagined. An act of singular daring will throw Kelsea’s kingdom into tumult, unleashing the vengeance of the tyrannical ruler of neighboring Mortmesne: the Red Queen, a sorceress possessed of the darkest magic. Now Kelsea will begin to discover whom among the servants, aristocracy, and her own guard she can trust.

But the quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend…if she can survive.
