Review: FORTUNE by Tia Giacalone

Release Date: May 31st, 2016

Type: Contemporary Romance, Series, Book 1, Rock Stars, Accents make my knees go weak

About the Book: A painter, a poet, a publicist, and a punk-rock princess... the boys of High Road Divide have no idea that this tour will change everything.

Tommy Fortune hadn’t realized he was looking for something different until he meets Cassandra Ryan. Soon their connection blurs the line between fame and reality, and it doesn't take long for Cassandra to follow her inspiration into his world, where paint-stained hands and guitar strings become the basis of their future. But nothing is as perfect as it looks from the outside, and even the most exposed still have secrets to keep. When tour life gets complicated, loyalties will be tested on the road, and they'll both learn that some harsh realities can't be painted over.

What happens when an artist stuck in black and white falls for a musician who only lives in color?

A STANDALONE New Adult Contemporary Romance - intended for readers 18+ due to mature themes.
Stay tuned for Book 2 in the High Road Divide series - CRUZ - coming spring/summer 2017. [Description from Goodreads.com]

My Review: It's no secret that I love rock stars. And now, with Thomas - I have another rocker to add to my snuggle-pile of book boyfriends. The guy on the cover may look tough, but don't let that fool you. Thomas is a very sweet, caring guy. And so are the rest of his band mates - which of course means I'm desperate for the rest of the band to get their chance in the limelight!

So I'll admit, the drama was a bit predictable - trust issues. But then again, when you have people living such a high profile life, I'm sure trust issues are a very real problem. And just wait until you get to the end.. The redemption and reunion is just right.

What really made this book a four star read, at least in my opinion, is the characterization. Author Tia Giacalone writes some amazing characters that I honestly wish I could be friends with. I liked Cassandra, I could see myself getting chummy with the publicist and the bodyguards, and the band members were starting to feel like family. Which explains why I'm so desperate for more books in this series. Each character had a very distinctive voice, so everyone was able to shine in their own right. And I have to say, I love how cheesy Thomas could be at times, especially when he made fun of himself for it. Sure, his lines are cheesy, but no one complains when he writes those over-the-top lines into a song, right?

Cover Lovin': A tatted-up hunk? Yes please!

Recommendation: For anyone that loves their rock stars with a little British flair.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! A fun read, with just the right amount of drama.

Happy Reading!

Weekly Reading Update 5/27 - 6/02/16!



Another week, another update! As always, click the title for more information.

You see my reviews on the blog, but my weekly updates are all about the weird, random, and reviewed-for-other-places reading that I do throughout the week. If you want to see what I read as I read it, as well as my ratings and quickie reviews, be sure to follow me on Goodreads.

Once again, I went graphic novel crazy, so I’ll just list them all quick and move on to the meatier books. It was a mostly Image comics weekend, with a Marvel and DC mixed in for something different. I started with Gotham Academy 2: Calamity by Becky Cloonan, then moved to Miles Morales, Ultimate Spider-man 2: Revelations by Brian Michael Bendis. I then breezed by way through Thief of Thieves 1: “I Quit” by Robert Kirkman, Five Ghosts 2: Lost Coastlines and Five Ghosts 3: Monsters and Men by Frank J. Barbiere. I finished up the comics binge with Morning Glories, Volume 9 by Nick Spencer. Obviously, I had a very busy Friday.

I then moved on to Sticky Fingers by Niki Burnham. I read the Royally Jacked series by her a few months ago, so Goodreads suggested this title to me, and I took the bait. It was an interesting read, a little preachy.. But I think the author dealt with this tough situation really well. It’s not one for the keeper shelf, but I thought it was an entertaining read. Honestly, I would probably look into reading more books by this author.

Next up were a few books for Romance Reviews Today. Rocked by Love by Christine Warren is the fourth book in the Gargoyles series, and it was super fun to read. I really liked the two main characters. I hope the author writes the next book soon so I can get my hands on it! After that I read Wicked Heart by Leisa Rayven - and oh wow. I loved this. I didn’t enjoy Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet as much as the rest of the world (or at least it feels like the rest of the world disagrees with me) - but Wicked Heart more than made up for it!

I’ve been working my way through all of the Tor.com novellas that my library owns, so my next book choice was Binti by Nnedi Okorafor. Guys, seriously.. If you like futuristic science fiction, you need to read this. It was so good! And thankfully, it’s the beginning of a series, so there will be more in the future - I just don’t think I can wait that long. This is probably my second favorite of the ones I’ve read, my first favorite being The Forest of Memory by Mary Robinette Kowal.

Last, but of course not least, I read The Dark Vampire by Kate Baxter, for Romance Reviews Today. I’m super grateful that they keep sending me the next book in the series to read whenever it releases, because this is a fun paranormal romance series.

Happy Reading!

Awakened by a Demoness (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 10)
Felicity Heaton
Asteria of the Second Legion of demons has messed up. Royally. With a capital everything. Certain that her dark lord is about to end her in the most painful way imaginable, she’s stunned when the fallen angel offers her an uncharacteristic shot at redemption—and determined not to fail him again. With her life on the line, she sets out on a mission that sounds easy but proves to be far from it when a hot slice of angelic eye candy comes storming into her life, stirring dangerous desires and tempting her more than any male before him.
Fifth Commander of the Echelon, the highest order of angels in Heaven and those responsible for hunting demons, he will allow nothing to stand in the way of fulfilling the mission he began close to a century ago so he can finally return to his home. On the verge of securing the half-breed he has been hunting, he can almost taste victory—until a sassy demoness struts into his life, awakening wicked needs and forbidden hungers that will test him to his limit.
When their mission brings them on a collision course, can they fight the fierce heat of the passion that blazes between them to claim a victory for their side or will it burn their resistance to ashes and set their hearts on fire with a love both forbidden and eternal?

Awakened by a Demoness – Excerpt
Asteria held her shit together as she approached the monolithic black citadel, her boots loud on the polished obsidian flagstones of its central circular courtyard. She tipped her chin up, clenched her fists at her sides to stop them from shaking, and strode towards her doom with the same resolve as she had managed to cling to during her trek through the previous six circular courtyards that surrounded the citadel like concentric rings.
She was fairly certain that these were the last few moments of her life and it was about to come to a grisly close.
It had taken her days of grovelling to her superiors, issuing profuse apologies unbecoming of a demon and having to bite her tongue when her temper had flared, but she had secured a meeting with her dark lord. She had been elated when the leader of her legion had informed her that their master was willing to speak with her, but as the hours had trickled past, that elation had turned to full blown fear.
She had failed in a very important mission, the sort no amount of grovelling could actually correct, so she wasn’t sure why she had thought this was going to end well.
The meeting a ridiculous part of her had believed was going to somehow redeem her was probably in fact a meeting in which she was going to discover her punishment.
Would it be a swim in the lava pit while the Devil watched her burn, or something far worse?
She wouldn’t be the first demoness, or demon, to be sentenced to spend time in his bed.
It wasn’t an honour.
It was a death sentence.
She hadn’t heard of anyone surviving the torture of being his bedfellow, mostly because those he didn’t eventually kill during the act were tossed into the lava pit when he was done with them.
Several low-ranking young demons scurried past her, dressed in black jackets and trousers, their feet bare and bloodied. The black sacks they carried over their shoulders dripped crimson, smelling of entrails.
Asteria swallowed hard and it was damned difficult to hold her nerve as she watched the clean up team carting away whatever poor bastard had just finished meeting with the Prince of Darkness.
An unfortunate lover?
She had heard the stories from those who served in his dark citadel, the young souls assigned to mopping up the mess after a lover had done or said something to flip his switch. Rumour had it that he went through at least two mattresses a week, and demanded a fresh, brand new set of sheets every few hours. His appetite for fucking was as insatiable as his appetite for destruction and death, and unfortunately that meant the two often coincided.
She sucked down a deep breath as she reached the grand arched entrance of the towering castle and looked up its height, taking in the jagged towers that rose into the dark grey sky of Hell. Light from the bubbling pits of lava beyond the walls of the central courtyard and the braziers that formed a circle, lining those walls, tried to lend warmth to the matt black stone of the fortress but only managed to make it look more sinister by casting shadows in the recesses.
The four huge demon males guarding the entrance eyed her, their elliptical pupils stretched thin in the centre of their black irises and burning gold. Elite. They were kept in a permanent state of rage in order to maintain their appearance, keeping them looking as dangerous and deadly as her kind could be.
She had such a dark side herself, but unleashing it right now would be a big mistake. Huge. Her dark lord didn’t appreciate those below him showing up on his doorstep looking ready for war.
It was the reason she had chosen her lighter black armour, the red-edged metal plates fitting more closely to her legs and hips, and across her chest, and had forgone wearing the gauntlets that normally encased her forearms and hands. She had also brushed her long black hair, tamed the gold-to-red streak that ran down the front right side, and had taken her time in front of the mirror in her hut, applying black around her blue eyes and painting her lips crimson.
She had even taken the time to preen her black leathery wings, buffing the membranes with wax until they shone, and had done the same with the small obsidian horns that curled from behind the pointed tips of her ears, following the curve down to end in a point near the lobes.
She eyed the four ripped bare-chested demon males guarding the entrance again, envied the bastards a little as she gazed at their horns. Males had bigger ones, the sort that twisted around to form deadly daggers beside their temples when they were enraged.
Asteria sighed, wishing she had such horns.
One of her friends had told her once that she had horn envy. She had denied it at the time, but it was true. Whenever she found herself banging a demon, she couldn’t keep her hands off their horns. She had even tried to rip one out of a male once. He had thought she was merely being rough and had enjoyed it. The damn thing had been rooted too deeply though and she had sort of forgotten about trying to break it off when he had begun thrusting harder between her legs, turning her brain to mush.
One of the male’s gazes slid her way and he raked an approving look over her. His black horns flared a little further, revealing his desire and interest to her.
She flicked her onyx hair over her shoulder, shot him a wink, and kept walking, a little swing to her hips with each step now as she silently flirted with the brute. She looked him up and down just as she passed him, bit her lip at the sight of so much hard muscle, and swore that if she survived the next few minutes she would be back to take him up on his offer.
Which would be a miracle, and those didn’t happen in Hell.
Still, he was a nice distraction as she ogled his arse over her shoulder, one that kept her thoughts away from her imminent death until someone approached her.
“Asteria of the Second Legion?” a demoness said, a wobble in her throaty voice.
She nodded and looked at her, and quickly masked the fear that bolted through her when she found herself face to face with a young female dressed in little more than a scrap of crimson around her hips and breasts, a thick black metal collar that was tight against her throat, and a lot of bruises.
By the Devil, was this the future she was doomed to endure staring right back at her with bleak bloodshot eyes and a startling lack of horns.
Someone had cut them off. Asteria tried not to gawp at them but she couldn’t stop herself, and her stomach plummeted when she realised they hadn’t been shorn.
They had been broken.
The black stumps that remained were brutally fractured.
The female’s hands twitched at her sides, as if with an urge to touch the horns Asteria stared at, so she dragged her eyes away, feeling bad that she had upset the young demoness.
Demons tried their best to be the toughest, most badass creatures in Hell, but when it boiled down to it, they had feelings too, and this female had been through the mill.
Probably at the hands of the one creature in Hell who didn’t possess a single jot of emotion.
The fallen angel she was about to meet.
The young demoness bowed her head and led the way, and Asteria tried to busy herself with taking in all the details of the palace her dark master called home in an attempt to stop herself from preening her horns, reassuring herself they were still perfect. Still there. On the outside, it matched his image perfectly, but on the inside… it was quite the opposite.
Oh, it was sumptuous and decadent, but it wasn’t exactly goth-chic as she had expected.
The black of the outside world gave way to white marble floors that were so highly polished she could see herself in them. They reflected the light from the crystal chandeliers, and that same light shone off the gold filigree that decorated the dark wooden ceiling. The walls were smooth and, of all things, papered. The vestibule and hallway that led off it had crimson wallpaper with black almost fleur-de-lys patterns on it. She had been in some expensive homes in the mortal world and the Devil had decorated his in that same style, but with a more sinister edge that she would have attributed more to a vampire than a fallen angel.
Her escort stopped at a set of arched wooden double doors and bowed.
Asteria guessed this was it. The bloody end to her somewhat not glorious career as a demon. She was a damned idiot for failing to capture the people who had slaughtered Barafnir but how the hell was she meant to have known the demon arsehole had been one of the Devil’s favourites?
She reached for the solid gold knob on one door, pulled down another breath to steel herself, and took hold of it. It was warm to the touch. Nothing like the cold bastard waiting on the other side. She could feel him there, his power vibrating through her, calling to her.
She closed her eyes, twisted the knob and pushed the door open just as she lifted her chin and fixed her gaze straight ahead.
It landed on a male lounging in a huge black throne in the centre of an enormous blue-walled room, wearing only gold-edged obsidian armour on his lower half.
Heaven be damned, because it had made him breathtaking.
She knew he was a brute, seven feet tall and dark and deadly, but he was a beautiful bastard, and he knew it as he sat there on his throne, black hair falling around his broad shoulders and chiselled torso on show.
The air in the expansive open room vibrated with his power, making her blood hum and skin tingle.
His red eyes held hers, a bored edge to his handsome face, and he lazily lifted his right hand from the arm of his throne and crooked a clawed finger, beckoning her.
Asteria’s palms sweated. She should have dressed a little sexier, taken more time about her appearance. It ran through her gaining volume on each pass as she sauntered towards him, feeling his heat rolling over her, power curling around her, drowning out the part of her that had feared him and replacing it with something altogether more terrifying.
Desire.
The corner of his profane mouth twitched into a smirk.
He knew he was affecting her, and while his mouth said that pleased him, the way his eyes darkened said it didn’t.
She straightened her spine, crushed her unruly feelings and boxed them away, and held her head high as she marched towards him, all business. Not weak. Not affected by just his damned gorgeous presence.
Her step faltered when she noticed a smouldering bloody stain on the white marble floor.
His last appointment?
By the Devil, she was going to die in the next few seconds, or worse, at a later date after he was done with her.
When she was within a few metres, he lowered his right leg from his left knee and set his foot on the floor. His hands came down over the edges of the arms of his black throne, curling around to press sharp black claws into the stone and causing his biceps to bulge.
Behind him, a sheer black curtain did a poor job of concealing the other half of the room and she tried not to look there but her eyes were drawn to the hazy glow of candles on the other side, her focus snagged by the low moans coming from that direction.
That heat curled around her again, pushed at her will but she pushed back, refusing to fall prey to it and the Devil’s dark allure. She wasn’t about to become like those females on the other side of the curtain who were probably writhing around on his bed, waiting impatiently for the male who was staring at her.
“Asteria of the Second Legion.” His deep voice rumbled around the room like thunder, charging the air and sending tremors of pleasure through her, and she had to squeeze her thighs to stop herself from collapsing into a puddle of goo at his feet. Heaven be doubly damned, it had built this male for sin. Thoughts of dirty hard sex popped into her head, illicit images that she did her best to shove away as soon as they burst into existence. “You disappointed me.”
Just like that, the spell over her shattered and cold fear replaced the wicked heat of desire.
This was it.
Her death knell.

Product Review: Brain Freeze Journal!

This review is going to be a little different, since I'm reviewing a product and not a book, like usual. So, really - mostly that means it will be shorter, and a little more technical.

My Review: Let's start with the design itself. This journal, titled "Brain Freeze" is 100% adorable! The journal itself is made to look like an ice cream sandwich. That means the front and back covers are a soft, textured brown made to look like the cookie part of an ice cream sandwich. The pages inside are colored like neapolitan ice cream - chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

I think what I like best about this is that I can open it to any page - including the very middle! - and I can write it in easily. There are journals out there that get tough to write in because you feel like you have to constantly hold it open because the binding is too tough. Not the issue here! The binding is strong, for sure, but it's also flexible enough to allow for comfortable writing. Which is incredibly important for a journal, wouldn't you say?

Recommendation: If you're looking for a fun, funky new journal to record your secret thoughts - or your all too important opinions on your recent read - look no further!

Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)! I love it, and I can't wait to keep using it - journaling in style!

Disclaimer: I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Review: EASY FOR KEEPS by Kristen Proby! & EXCERPT

InkSlinger PR - blogger banner


Release Date: May 24th, 2016

Type: Novella, Series, Book 4.5, Contemporary, Romance, 1001 Dark Nights, Kristen Proby is an insta-buy.

About the Book: Adam Turner loves women. All women. Every shape and size, regardless of hair or eye color, religion or race, he simply enjoys them all. Meeting more than his fair share as the manager and head bartender of The Odyssey, a hot spot in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, Adam’s comfortable with his lifestyle, and sees no reason to change it. A wife and kids, plus the white picket fence are not in the cards for this confirmed bachelor. Until a beautiful woman, and her sweet princess, literally knock him on his ass. 

Sarah Cox has just moved to New Orleans, having accepted a position as a social worker specializing in at-risk women and children. It’s a demanding, sometimes dangerous job, but Sarah is no shy wallflower. She can handle just about anything that comes at her, even the attentions of one sexy Adam Turner. Just because he’s charmed her daughter, making her think of magical kingdoms with happily ever after, doesn’t mean that Sarah believes in fairy tales. But the more time she spends with the enchanting man, the more he begins to sway her into believing in forever. 

Even so, when Sarah’s job becomes more dangerous than any of them bargained for, will she be ripped from Adam’s life forever? [Description from Goodreads.com]

My Review: Kristen Proby has already put herself on my insta-buy list. This book is 100 pages - this woman can make me giddy, excited, and nervous in a mere 100 pages. I think she's a wizard, that's the only explanation. This is the first of the Boudreaux books I've ever read, so you better believe I went and bought book one, I'm addicted. Adam is just so perfect. Sometimes you read characters and you know they're fictional, there is just this plastic sheen that makes them feel fake. There is absolutely no sense of that in this book. Adam and Sarah, even the awesome little Hailey, feel so real. I want to be friends with them. Or, well.. in Adam's case, I'd like to be so much more than friends.

Usually I only like novellas as a continuation of characters that have already met and fell in love - a "where are they now?" kind of thing. Generally, novellas just try to pack too much story into too short a time-frame. But this book gives us a full story without trying to hard. It's the right amount of romance and plot for the amount of pages therein. Really, all of the 1001 Dark Night stories I've read have been well done.

Cover Lovin': Fits right in with the rest of the 1001 Dark Nights series.

Recommendation: This can be read as a stand-alone, no problem. And it's a perfect one-sitting read!

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5). Excellent story, and I can't wait to read more of this series!

Disclaimer: I received a free copy in exchange for a review. 

EXCERPT:

“Having trouble?” I ask and grin when she looks up at me in surprise. Hailey is buckled into the back seat now and waves at me with a big smile, and I wave back.
“It was running fine when I left the apartment and came here.” She sighs and lays her forehead against the steering wheel. She’s a pretty woman. She has curves in all the right places, but doesn’t wear clothes that hug them. Her hair is long and just begging for fingers to thread through it.
And her lips are plump and damn kissable. Especially when she bites them the way she’s doing right now as she lifts her head and looks up at me.
“Sounds like your battery is dead.”
“Great,” she replies and blows out a breath.
“Do you have someone you can call?”
She hesitates and then shakes her head no. She’s not quick to trust, that’s for sure, and for some reason, that makes me want to try to help all the more.
It’s been a while since a woman was a challenge.
“We just moved here,” Hailey informs me.
“Hailey—”
“It’s okay,” I reply. “I can call you a tow truck. I know a guy.”
She nods.
“But I have to tell him your name.”
“Sarah,” she replies. “I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be rude.”
“Hey, stranger danger. I get it.” I nod and text my friend, then stare at the two girls for a moment. I can’t just leave them here.
“I can take you wherever you needed to get to.”
“No,” Sarah replies immediately.
“Look, let’s start again. My name’s Adam. I’ve never been arrested for anything, and I’ve received two speeding tickets in my life. I co-own a bar in the Quarter, and that’s why I haven’t been to bed yet today. I can give you references to call if you really want them.”
Her lips twitch into a slight smile and her eyes calm. They’re not just brown. They’re rich, dark chocolate.
And she has a kid. Just be a Good Samaritan and go home to bed.
