Twice Upon a Time by Hope Irving *Review

Twice_upon_a_time-Hope Irving-Cover

Once upon a time, there was the wandering soul of Morgann, an 8th century Irish calligrapher-monk longing to be reunited with his soul mate. Deirdre was his forbidden love, a witch with whom he wrote a coveted book.

Under her spell, the souls of the star-crossed lovers travel from bodies to bodies until they find each other. Eventually.
That became his quest: unearth her new body and trigger her memory, for she is clueless about whom she once was. Unfortunately their story didn’t get a chance to become a fairy tale yet it still turned out as a famous urban legend referred as The Black Angel Book.

Twice upon a time, not so long ago, there was me, rational and devastated Rose. I needed to get a grip, said my French mum after my year of numbness due to a painful break-up that led me to cut my wrist daily, to feel something, anything.

So she sent me off to the free-spirited village of Provincetown, Massachusetts, to spend the summer with my American relatives. And just like that, I wasn’t myself any longer. Because someone pulled me out of the darkness and bewitched me, somehow.

I couldn’t wait to jump his bones… but why was he holding back?
He couldn’t wait to welcome me into his world… but was I ready to question my convictions and acknowledge that my self-inflicted cuts were now healing in record time?

How could I have imagined he was longing for his own unorthodox fairytale to come true? Frantically.

review2

In the 8th century, an Irish monk/calligrapher named Morgann did the forbidden act of falling in love and going against his pledge of celibacy. But he didn’t just fall in love with any one. He fell in love with a witch. Deirdre, the witch in question, fell in love with Morgann too, and together they worked on a book of spells that was coveted by the very people who tried to kill them. But before their demise, Deirdre placed a curse on them that would allow their souls to travel across time, occupying different bodies in order to meet each other again one day. True soul mates. Now in the present time, Virgil, the host body for Morgann’s soul, remembers his past life and is in desperate need to find his soul mate so they can finish the book which their past selves couldn’t. But he is aware that the host for Deirdre may not remember her past with him, so he has to find her and push her into remembering or their love may be lost forever.

Rose, a Parisian college graduate comes to Provincetown, Massachusetts to visit her American family and to also get away from a very bad breakup. She had been depressed for a year, practically a zombie, and only found some sort of rush for life when she cut her wrist. Although vacationing with her favorite cousins and aunt seemed like fun, she was afraid that nothing would get her out of her funk. That is until she decided to take a calligraphy class and meet the very tall and awkwardly handsome Virgil. After spending time with him, a fire is ignited inside of her that she has never felt before, and her whole body desires him. She has no explanation for why she wants him so bad, but when Virgil feels the same way about her, he realizes that she must be his soul mate, the host body of Deirdre. Not wanting to rush things, Virgil decides to take things slow and gradually get to know Rose instead of forcing them together because of Morgann and Deirdre. But can he find the courage to tell Rose the truth about them? And if he does, will Rose stick around and believe him about why they are attracted to each other, or will she find the whole thing nuts?

Twice Upon A Time is a true roller coaster ride. Some parts exciting, some parts uncomfortable, but altogether a rush to read. I will say that it took me a while to get into the main plot of the story, because the first half or so is about Rose in Provincetown and then about Rose and Virgil meeting and getting to know each other. I’m not saying that it was necessarily a bad thing, but it kind of frustrated me to know that the real nitty-gritty stuff happened more than midway through. It made me wonder what took so long to get there. Maybe that’s just me since I’m the type of person who likes to know what’s going on before the halfway mark (well except if I’m reading a mystery/suspense/horror), especially in a book about soul mates that triggers romance. I don’t like waiting long before I know that the characters are going to be together. And I don’t like waiting long to find out that my characters are different than they appear (once again except in mystery/horror/suspense). I shouldn’t have to read more than half the book to find out that a character I once thought shy and awkward is actually a killer with a cause…in a plot I would consider a romance! Even though it was a nice and exciting twist that added more depth to the plot, it was a mind blow because there were no innuendos that led up to that crazy character development, and it was kind of just thrown at me. It made me sit up and read it over again, hoping I didn’t read the words wrong. But none of that turned me away from the book. There were a lot of surprises within the plot and between the characters that kept me on edge and made reading enjoyable. I give Twice Upon A Time 4 fangs! I recommend it to the romantics out there who believe in the power of love, reincarnation, and the existence of soul mates.

A Perfect Caress by Nana Prah

 

Title: A Perfect Caress
Author: Nana Prah
Genre: Adult, Harlequin Kimani Romance
Published: November 22, 2016
From the very first touch…

The moment suave businessman Dante Sanderson brushes hands with Lanelle Murphy, he can’t get her out of his head. The guarded beauty resists all of his polished attempts at seduction. To soften the pain in her past, she’s dedicated her life and family fortune to helping others, not chasing sexy millionaires like Dante.

Something about Lanelle makes Dante want to open his heart like never before. He knows their encounters are destiny. Lanelle is sure their sparks mean another heartache is in the making. Yet her cherished new project—a state-of-the-art neonatal unit—brings them together. From charity ball dances to strolls in Milan, desire pushes her…right into his arms. But will Lanelle be able to seize this sweet second chance at love?

 

A Perfect Caress Excerpt © Nana Prah 2016Without warning, Dante invaded her space and tilted her into a dip. Gripping the shoulders of his tuxedo, she scowled into his smiling face as the blood rushed to her head. Before she could chastise him, he brought her upright.
She hated surprises. Being out of control ranked number one on her never-to-do list. Dante threatened all of that. From the few stories Vanessa had told her about him, they were as different as a waltz and a tango. “Talk.”
Should she be feeling the deep rumble of his laughter against her chest? When had he pulled her so close? She tried to create space between them. His hand splayed at her back made it impossible.
“Do you ever loosen up?”
She snapped her head up. Even though she was wearing stilettos, he loomed over her. “You’ve met me, what? All of twice? You have no idea who I am.”
He leaned in close, his breath tickling her ear as he whispered, “But I’d like to.”
All thoughts of why she’d come on the dance floor escaped as he pressed his cheek against hers. For once in her life Lanelle lost herself in the gentle sway of a man’s embrace.

Nana Prah first discovered romance in a book from her eight grade summer reading list and has been obsessed with it ever since. Her fascination with love inspired her to write in her favorite genre where happily-ever-after is the rule.

Luke’s Redemption
by Anni Fife

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Erotic Romantic Suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Chased by her criminal kingpin father, Katya Dalca runs to New Orleans and straight into the arms of Luke Hunter. Sucked into the carnal world of the French Quarter, she succumbs to Luke’s potent sexuality. He not only steals her breath, he steals her heart and the only leverage she has against her father. She is left with no choice except to pick up the pieces and rebuild her life alone.

Undercover DEA agent Luke Hunter thought his newest assignment—recover a stolen flash drive to gain the trust of the Russian mob—was like any other. But his target brings him to his knees, and after one taste of her intoxicating beauty, he’s in too deep. Doing his job means walking away, leaving his heart behind with nothing but a promise to reunite. It’s a promise he can’t keep.

When Katya’s past reaches out and her world unravels, her only hope is the one man she is most vulnerable to—Luke.
Excerpt : PG-13 – language

We pulled into the underground parking at King Security and Luke parked the SUV in line with several other huge black Ford Expeditions. It appeared King Security had its own fleet.

Unable to stop myself, I blurted, “You were with Anna when you were undercover with my father, weren’t you?”

Luke pulled the keys from the ignition. In the deafening silence I didn’t think he was going to answer. Then he turned to me and bit out. “Yes!”

Wow! I didn’t expect him to be so honest. I sat back and folded my arms, tight. Damn, his answer hurt me. “So you make a habit of lying to your women? Being with them while you’re pretending to be someone you’re not? Is that your thing?”

“She wasn’t my woman,” Luke growled. “She was just a woman. She was there, I was there. It was never deep and it sure as hell wasn’t forever. Then it was over, and I made certain she was clear of the investigation. That was it.” He leaned towards me and said impatiently, “That tell you what you want to know?”

“Not even close. You made love to her didn’t you?”

“Hell no!” Luke snarled. “I fucked her. Like I have all the other women in my life. There’s only one woman I ever made love to Katya. And that was you.”

I went rigid, stunned into silence. Luke turned to open his car door. “You didn’t make love to me, Michael did,” I whispered.

review

On the run from her gangster father and his dangerous associates, Kataya falls quickly for “Michael”, unknowing he is actually undercover operative Luke who ultimately betrays her. Fast forward six years, Kataya returns to New York to claim her inheritance, only to be reunited, with Luke, his security team, and her father. She must deal with her past to move on to her future. I’m rating this story 4 hearts, I enjoyed it and would definitely be interested in following other characters from the security team, but I felt there were a couple of issues. First, the author has a unique way of writing differing points of view, that I felt threw the story off. When writing Kataya’s POV, it’s written first person. To get Luke‘s it was written third person. I would have preferred one or the other. I felt the storyline was disjointed at places, which created some flow issues. Finally, I found myself thinking “that would never happen or “they would never say that”. Overall , I did like the story.

Now her life seems complete when Josh─a thoughtful, handsome, and the worst kind of charmer─leaves his womanizing days behind and can’t seem to stay away from her. Kassandra keeps wondering if their single days are really over and they’re ready for a monogamous and committed relationship.

Destiny is full of surprises for both girls, and sometimes the plans that you have aren’t the ones in the path before you.

Join Kassandra and Marisol as they remember how they planned Sol’s wedding while they solve together the difficulties in the present.

review

Very interesting!  Romance mixed just the right amount of sex, although not super explicit, makes for an entertaining storyline.  The back and forth style of writing kept me intrigued and looking forward to the next chapter to see if it was a flashback or current!  The characters and their various troubles were completely believable and I was involved with them fairly quickly.  Nothing made me cry, but it wasn’t a really intense story, either.
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I’m giving it four hearts!  It was entertaining, interesting and left me wanting to read more about these characters.

The Fervor by X. Kovak #Review

ferverEVERYONE KNOWS MONSTERS EXIST.
BUT SHE NEVER EXPECTED TO BE ONE OF THEM…

Thanks to her great- great-grandmother, loner Claire Sommers’ DNA results are succubus positive. To make matters worse, her college is forcing her into the Supernatural program. The last place she wants to be is in a room filled with ferals, vampires, and other monsters from her nightmares. The absolute worst thing she can imagine? Getting hit with her first fervor in the middle of said classroom. Especially in front of the new alpha of the Red Crescent pack, Lucas Masters.

With every Supe in scenting distance caught up in the pheromone frenzy, Claire realizes she’s probably not going to survive the night with her dignity intact. She may not even survive at all…

Thanks Grandma.

The Fervor is the sizzling first installment of the Sinful Supes series. If you’re a fan of dominant werewolves and dark suspense, sign up for the free advance review copy today. http://xkovak.com/free-arc-sign-ups/

READER DISCRETION ADVISED

review

The Fervor

Wow!! I don’t know that I can say I’ve ever read anything that I’ve been slightly turned on while at the same time thought to myself “OMG that’s really gross”! Claire doesn’t believe she’s a “Sup” let alone a long thought extinct succubus until shes forced to attend a college class with other sups which goes horrifically wrong. So the good; very descriptively written and gripped my attention quickly. It’s a fast read, cuz I didn’t want to put it down. It left me with lots of questions, but I think of a good kind and the cliff hanger ending makes me want the next one. The bad; I don’t like that it was only written in Claire’s POV, I think opening it up to third person writing or at least shared with Lucas could have added a ton to the story. It also creeped me out to find out that Lucas was 16. This is a pretty sexually based story (not overly sexually graphic tho) and to find out the main male character was a teenager was a major yuck. I rate it 4.5 hearts.

When going into the city to visit one of the kids, Mo nearly runs over a little girl who runs into the street. She realizes this young girl has been abused. Mo takes this little bit into her home while her father is indtidied. While all this is happening, she meets a hunky guy that says he’s been dreaming about her and dreams of the future. Of course, Mo thinks this guy is a total wacko and yet she still can’t quit thinking about him. He tells her of a vision that could truly change everything for good. Something she may not be able to survive.
I really loved the concept of the book. It had a very solid story from the beginning, but I felt became a but weak towards the end. This had a great build, a solid ascent to the climax, I totally felt the end was very rushed. I mean, who doesn’t love a strong heroine and a sensitive hero?! Besides that, I enjoyed the story and still would recommend.
I give this a four star read!

Billy Bobble and the Witch Hunt by RS Mellette #KidReview

bobbleFor Billy Bobble and his best friend Suzy Quinofski, it’s hard enough to be thirteen and in high school without having to fight evil at every turn, but it’s even harder to do that while they try to get their memory back after a magic spell cast by a villainous physics teacher. Even without their memories, Billy and Suzy know something is not right. Their textbooks have been changed, their parents aren’t acting right, their teachers are afraid, and Billy and Suzy are in each other’s dreams. But when their history teacher is fired during class for answering a question from one of those dreams, Billy and Suzy get their memories back. Soon they realize that evil has been unleashed upon the human race, and only the two of them, their friends, and their families can stop it.

review

Billy Bobble Makes a Magic Wand is the first book in the Billy Bobble series. I believe each book in the series could be read as a standalone. However, I recommend reading them in order so you get to meet the characters a little better and not get confused with references to scenes of the previous book. 
It has been a year since Billy made a magic wand and he and Suzy saved humanity from evil, were congratulated by the President, and received scholarships for a very prestigious school. I must say I was impressed by the way Suzy and Billy spoke to the President. It was as if he was your everyday guy. I just couldn’t help but giggle a little at that part. Well, back to the story. Now both kids are 13 years old and starting high school. It certainly is difficult enough to go through high school without the extra pressure of saving humanity, once again. However, things are even more difficult this time. I mean, how can you save humanity when you don’t even know it is in danger because you lost your memories. It is amazing how the author manages to make this very unrealistic scenarios so credible and enjoyable at the same time. Honestly, I was totally imagining every scene of the book and even switched places with Suzy every now and then. I really believe the readers will be doing the same too. 
My favorite part of the book was the start. In the first book, we got to see Suzy being questioned about Billy’s disappearance by a police officer. Now, we get to see Billy being questioned about a psychiatrist. I must say I was really shocked when he was told he was beating a teacher. I know, some might think it doesn’t sound appropriate for children. However, I believe it is a good way to show the kids about good and bad choices and the repercussions of their actions on a safe environment. Besides, the confusion and amnesia of Billy just spark your curiosity even more. At least that is what happened to me.
As I said, evil is back and our two favorite kids are the only hope of humanity, once again. I totally loved how they managed to involve school with the source of evil at some point because, after all, some kids see it as that way. It would be a good lesson for them to see Billy and Suzy conquer it with flying colors. In my point of view, it was quite inspiring. I highly recommend this book for primary and secondary school kids. However, I believe this book is one even teens and adults would enjoy.

Fantastic!  Awesomely written, with characters that captured my heart within moments of meeting them.  Twists and surprises mixed in with a few hot steamy male/male sex scenes.  Action, adventure, and romance, plus, keep plenty of tissues available!!  Sword fights, knife fights and erotic dancing are just a few of the fantastic things sprinkled through this epic story of a prince becoming a king.

Christmas with Boss Brothers by Amy Brent

bossOne curvy waitress, Two HOT billionaire bosses, an unforgettable Christmas Eve….now that’s what we call paradise.

Grab your toys, some Kleenex and get ready for the smuttiest Christmas holidays ever!

Books included in this collection:

My Christmas gift

Just a few hours ago I was cursing this particular Kennedy brother, but now all I want to do is find out how the rest of his skin would feel beneath my touch. His clear blue eyes meet mine, and I realize he is going to be a lot more complicated than I initially expected.

Two Huge 4 me

She felt a sense of embarrassment as he looked at her, just taking in her appearance. She moved to cover up but he grabbed her hands holding them down by her side. She couldn’t move as he held her. He moved behind her trading places with Blake, who now had free access to her breasts as Derek held her hands down, gently but firmly..

Loving both

“You guys aren’t…gay?” Sadie asked and heard Brent laugh.

“Not so much. We both loved pleasuring you, but we don’t feel the need to pleasure each other. I guess if a hand slips or something next time, then we’ll see what happens.”

Vacationing with my billionaire bosses

“You’re a virgin?” I nodded with some shame crossing my features, and he shook his head. “No, that’s beautiful. Nobody has felt you wrapped around them, tasted you,” his eyes questioned me, and I shook my head as he slid his arms down over my ass and moved his body close to mine. “That makes it even more interesting. Which one of us will you give yourself to?”

Warning: This is a steamy, menage collection with loads of juiciness and explicit content, suitable for mature audience only. For a limited time, this novella comes with the complete girl fantasy series (Don’t forget to indulge in your filthiest fantasies through Christmas Foursomes and Moresomes – scroll down to TOC to take a look!).

review

Christmas with Boss Brothers is set of four short books or longer short stories. Some are longer than others. They are all about women who are not the typical model pretty heroine who gets her man. In these books the women are all looking for mister right and not into casual sex. But then they find not one but two mister rights and have to figure out what to do and how to go from there.

This book is good. WARNING: The book has some very explicit sex scenes so I would recommend this book for mature readers. The characters come alive very quickly and the reader is pulled into the story very fast. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a spicy read, or four, and that also enjoys romance stories that are MFM type stories.

I’m giving this book 4 hearts

Skywhisperers by Natasia Hellenthal #Review

skyTwo decades ago a great deafening silence entered the world. Since then, the winds have mysteriously vanished. And with the disappearing of the wind, the magic held by the once mighty, immortal Sky Whisperers was shattered. Their influence over the natural world lost. Now only the small powers are left to Xenthia and her people, helping to sustain life––what little remains. For the world of Lorian is dying.

All Nemsa has ever known is a world without wind.
Strangely, the winds stayed away around the day of her birth, twenty five years ago, setting off a chain of disastrous events including a fatal sickness. And for that the girl is both tormented and shunned.
Unaware of her involvement in this, she leads a small, miserable life in a mountain village, close to where she was found as a baby.
She wants nothing more than to find out to why there is no wind. And why the Gods have seemingly forgotten about them.

That tiny spark starts a fury of change when one day Nemsa meets alluring Xenthia––a mystifying Sky Whisperer––and it becomes clear that Nemsa’s path lies far above all she is familiar with. Beyond her village and the Lower Sky, past the red, dusty mountains even, and up to the unknown lands of the Upper Sky Dome to the realm of the Sky Whisperers. But, even with her true heritage revealed, how can crippled and one-eyed Nemsa’s destiny be linked with that of the much older, immortal Sky Whisperer she grows fonder of by the day? What is expected of her? More so––how can frail Nemsa ever hope to stand up against the supremacy of a vengeful, ambitious Sun Whisperer? Will the courage in her heart be enough?

Magic is at work, a fatal sickness is spreading among mortals and immortals alike, the sun is brutally beating down, and the fate of all hangs in the balance. And if Nemsa is to fulfil her destiny and save the world, she must find her way through it all…

Follow Nemsa and Xenthia in this Epic, Dystopian, NA Lesbian Fantasy tale of courage, interracial love, redemption, and hope.

review

Genre fiction typically follows a pattern. In the case of fantasy, there is usually an unassuming person of humble means, who learns that he or she is destined to save the world. That trope goes through a lot of today’s dystopian fiction, as well, and this novel is actually an interesting blend of dystopian fiction and fantasy. In this novel, Nemsa, a young woman who is been blind in one eye and who walks with a limp finds out that the taunting that she has received her whole life about being the cause of the wind ceasing to blow in the world is actually true. She meets up with an older woman, Xenthia, (though she does not fully understand how much older until later) who introduces Nemsa to her destiny. The book is a very thought-provoking one because it explores the idea of same sex relationships as being the norm in the world of the novel. Love plays an important role in the strength of the Skywhisperers’ powers, and jealousy can be their downfall. There is a happily-ever-after, of a sort ending, and it does not end in a cliffhanger, which gets a big thumbs up from me.

As I briefly mentioned, the two main characters in this romantic novel are women, and there are sex scenes between them. While not as explicit as to considered “erotica”, the scenes are explicit enough that I would recommend this book only to mature readers 16+. The book continues the thought provoking nature because the fact that the two main characters are women doesn’t especially matter; gender isn’t the issue at the forefront in the relationship between Xenthia and Nemsa; love is.

I enjoyed this book a lot and the world intrigues me to the point that I hope the author revisits it in the future. If she does, I’d love to journey back and see what the landscape looks like.
