I enjoyed this book, but I needed I to be a little longer. It can’t be an easy thing to tie in so many backgrounds and current lives into such an intriguing story. The town of Snowbrooke is dealing with more than its namesake. Someone is killing the residents at an alarming rate, just about one each night. You’ve got five students trying to pass their high school English night class to further their life goals and their very odd teacher. This class is the only one still going on at night with all of the murders going on. These five don’t realize how they have touched each other’s lives or what that means for the future situation. I can’t wait for book two!

~ Synopsis ~

Chilling…A riveting thriller.” NEW YORK MAGAZINE

New York City is caught in the cold grip of a brutal serial killer who savagely rapes and murders his young, blonde victims. While ravaging them, his mind whirls with symphonic images and raging desires–rarely giving thought to his loving wife and child.

Young, blonde Zelly Wyche has a new baby and a happy life with her dependable electrician husband. She, too, is petrified by the madness and the unthinkable tragedy of the murders. While the serial killers’ sole survivor and a victim’s brother mount a desperate vigilante hunt for the “Symphony Slasher,” a chill runs up Zelly’s spine. She is beginning to wonder if the killer could be closer than she thinks. But no. Impossible. She has to be dead wrong….

review2

This isn’t a bad book but you could basically tell from the beginning who the killer was. I’d rather read a book where it keeps me guessing till the end.Zelly has a facination with serial killers, with a 6 month old baby, she’s a stay at home mom  and is married to Patrick. Patrick is an electrician and runs his own buisness. Zelly figures out Patrick is the rapist/killer pretty quick because who needs their house wired in the middle of the night. Plus the way he answers when she starts to talk about the killer. When he almost rapes her all she can think about is how he made the baby cry, what the heck, she should be thinking about more than that. I read this but it didn’t keep me glued to the book, it was sort of wordy and repetitive. Independent reviewer for PR&ATR. 3 fangs.

Published by Evernight Publishing
Moon Dance, book 1

Genre: Erotic, Paranormal, F/F, Shifters, Short Stories

 

 

MOON DANCE – Blurb

A quick pick up and a night of sex was just what Raya was looking for. Only meeting Amari set her insides on fire and she had to have more of this Indian beauty. Witches and shifters aren’t meant to bond only Raya and Amari can’t ignore the chemistry flowing between them. Trouble strikes the lovers when a past trauma hits Raya and Amari’s mother could be to blame. Finally Raya has a chance to get even with the old witch, who destroyed her life. When that revenge reveals that Raya’s past holds secrets she wasn’t aware of, it throws into question everything she believes in. Can the lovers unite to help Raya find her true self or is it all too late?

 
review2
Moon Dance is the first short novel in the Moon Maiden Series about Raya and Amari.  The story jumps right into them meeting at a local gay bar and rushing into an intimate relationship based on Raya’s shifter bond. Then you find out some more background information on each of the main characters which allows you to bring them more to life. There was a short obstacle in the book that took place however it really never took root before it was gone. I believe this to be more of an novice writers first series. There were errors when it came to naming the right character at certain parts. The rushing without a lot of background or lead up was a big downfall. I really would have like to see the story developed more. Based on the contents this story is for 18+. I am giving this story 3 Fangs.
moonboundMOON BOUND – Blurb

Under the glare of the full moon, friends and foes alike meet their destiny…

Wolf shifter Misty never thought she would rescue a damsel in distress, but when she stumbles across a bloodied girl on her run, she has to act fast. An action she ought to regret when that girl turns out to be Were shifter, and thus an enemy of her pack.

Feelings cannot be denied, however, and when she meets Sofya again, the girls give into their attraction for each other.

The path to true love is never smooth and tensions rise further when Sofya’s father is implicated in a shifter death.

Will this news tear the two lovers apart, and turn them into foes or can the moon bind them together to work out the truth?

 review2
Moon Bound is the second short novel in the Moon Maiden Series about Misti and Sofya.  The story jumps right into Misti becoming Sofyas’ rescuer. They have an immediate attraction despite their heritages. Then you find out some more background information on about the cause of the attack which ties well from the first book. There was a short obstacle in the book that took place however it really never took root before it was gone. I believe this to be more of an novice writers second attempt to enhance their writing. There were errors when it came to naming the right character at certain parts. The rushing without a lot of background or lead up was a big downfall. I really would have like to see the story developed more like in the first novel. Based on the contents this story is for 18+. I am giving this story 3 Fangs.

Moon Dance
Excerpt – Adult

“Good morning Amari. Sorry I couldn’t wait,” Raya said. She pulled off her sneakers one by one, followed by her sports socks.
Amari held out her hand, inviting her across. Raya’s eyes lit up and she began to walk across the shallow water. Suddenly she stopped and looked down at her feet, confusion written across her face. Raya backed away, out of the water.
“You okay?”
“Err…yeah. Why don’t you come across here?” Raya suggested.
Amari did not hesitate, pulling up her dress to skip across the cool water, leaving her sandals behind. Once across, Raya grabbed her hand and pulled her into her. Both girls looked at each other. Raya’s deep green eyes shone back at Amari.
“You’re beautiful…” began Raya, but she was silenced by Amari who pulled Raya’s head down in a rough kiss. Instantly there was a connection, sparks of energy flew around them and Amari’s body began to heat up. Lips meshed and tongues played, dancing and teasing. Their hands explored and grabbed each other’s bodies to get closer, wanting no space between them.
Ray moaned into Amari’s mouth. Amari pulled away.
“Sorry, did I hurt you?”
“Are you kidding me?” Raya said, pulling her back into a kissing that almost hurt with the fierce passion that was behind it. Amari’s mouth sizzled against Raya’s; never had she experienced something this strong straight away. She pulled at Raya’s T-shirt, wanting nothing between them; skin on skin was her desire. Raya helped her out by holding her arms up and Amari pulled the T-shirt off. Underneath she wore a simple cotton bra that cradled her breasts. Amari slid off one strap and kissed the soft skin of her neck, then shoulder. She felt Raya’s hand massage the back of her head, keeping her in that position. So she likes to be kissed there. With a new lover, it was always a learning experience; what they liked and didn’t like was stored in your memory. She was enjoying learning about Raya. She pulled down one cup to reveal a perfect breast with an erect pink nipple. Raya wasted no time: she sucked it straight away and then used her teeth to bite gently. This released another moan from Raya’s lips. Amari smiled, looking up at Raya.
“You like a little pain?” Amari carried on sucking Raya’s breasts with gentle bites. She moved her hand down Raya’s front and edged it into her joggers and down to her panties, which to Amari’s delight were a little moist. She rubbed Raya’s mound, letting the tips of her fingers slide down further. Raya spread her legs a little; that meant Amari could reach further. Massaging that pussy was not enough, she wanted to taste. Amari grabbed Raya’s joggers, pulled them all the way down and then knelt at her feet.
Raya’s legs were long and toned, probably with all that jogging. Amari stroked them up and down, dragging her nails closer and closer to her bare pussy that glistened, inviting her to taste.



Moon Bound
Excerpt PG:

“You’re stalling, so it must mean it’s time for me to leave.” Sofya spun on the spot, and Misty swiftly caught her arm.
“Let’s take a seat.” Misty pointed to the sofa and Sofya nodded her agreement.
“Raya’s father was killed when she was young, and it’s all messed up.” Misty took a sip. “He had land and somehow the local Were community were involved.”
“My father had nothing to do with that…how could you think such a thing?” Sofya put the cup down and made to get up. Misty reached across and grabbed her arm.
“I know, I know he didn’t. It was all before his time. But if the land was taken without proper permission then Raya has a right to claim it.”
“Wait, are you talking about the land that Wylan wants? He keeps bugging my dad to sign it over to him.”
“You know about all this?” Misty sat up, alert to every detail.
“Sure, I know there’s something going on with some land issue, and I heard Wylan and dad talking about how the Vamps were warning us or something…wait.” Sofya paused, looking into her cup.
“What?”
“Wylan was talking about the night I was attacked and how the Vamps were sending a warning. I didn’t get it at the time.”
“Hold on, that makes sense. Raya and Amari have worked out that somehow the Shifters blamed the Witches who had some involvement in a curse on the Weres. It looks like the Vamps have been using both communities for their own reasons.”
“Oh boy, not the stupid legend of how a powerful witch cursed the Weres who are now bound to the moon? Come on people.” She rolled her eyes. “Sheesh.”
“Each community holds on to their own beliefs and legends. For some it’s what holds people together, since you know a common enemy. You and I are supposed to be enemies, but when you get rid of all that bad history we are two people who love each other.”
“What? You love me? Seriously, like proper love?” Sofya’s eyes widened.
Misty suddenly realized what she had said. There was no going back now.
“Y…Yes I do. I’ve never felt like this with anyone.” Misty looked down at her hands, too scared to look up and stare Sofya in the face. She was worried at what she’d see. Rejection was not something she wanted to feel ever again.
“I love you too.”
The words she longed to hear came as a whisper. Misty looked up and saw tears shining in the eyes of the woman she loved.
“Really?” Misty couldn’t believe it. No-one had ever said that back to her.

Rainbow Curve by Michael Boylan *Review

bookcover

Title: Rainbow Curve

Author: Michael Boylan

Genre: Sports

Buy a ticket for a bus ride taking you from North to Central to South America and a boat ride to the Caribbean along with a traveling baseball team. Discover baseball in all its mythical allure: Rainbow Curve is a compelling tale about race, politics, corrupting power and one man’s courage to stand up against it.

An aging baseball player, his multi-cultural teammates, a domineering manager, and a South American drug lord—are all brought together in Rainbow Curve, a gripping novel that explores the international baseball scene. Moving from training camps in Sun City, Arizona, to Wrigley Field in Chicago, to a mountain citadel in Columbia, author Michael Boylan expertly draws connections between America’s favorite pastime, cultural power, and ethical choice.
-Linda Furgerson Selzer, Associate Professor of English/ Penn State University.

Michael Boylan writes like a true baseball fan. Rainbow Curve is a novel filled with more than 9 innings of history. From barnstorming and tales about the Negro Leagues to the Chicago Cubs, Boylan examines the life of players on and off the field. Bo Mellan, Rainbow Billy Beauchamp and Buddy Beal are just some of the characters who give this novel a high batting average. Baseball is not just a game about balls and strikes, it’s also about economics, race, youth and growing old. Rainbow Curve is a reminder of why we sing “God Bless America” at the ball park.
– E. Ethelbert Miller, Literary Activist and author of The 5th Inning.

 review2

Surprisingly good. Why “surprisingly”? I love any book with romance, mystery, or suspense. And although I like sports well enough, without the other elements it would definitely not be something I would read as I just wouldn’t be able to get into it. This book actually had some political intrigue which made the book interesting to non-sports fans. If you’re a sports fan, especially baseball, then this is something I would definitely recommend.
The story follows Bo Mellan, a young American pitcher who was orphaned as a teenager and taken in by his landlord, Rainbow Billy Beauchamp, a retired African American baseball player.  After the death of Bo’s mother, Rainbow decides to sell his business and with his young charge in hand, start his own traveling baseball team in Latin America. The story jumps back and forth a decade or so from 1970 to 1984, when Bo first heads out with Rainbow, and his time as a major league baseball player with the Chicago Cubs 14 years after they leave America. This was a little confusing at first. The author begins the first couple of chapters with the year noted, but then discontinued doing this before I was ready so it took me a second to get used to the flow of the jumps between times. Interestingly enough, the tone of the story had an older time feel. If I didn’t know I was reading about the 70s, I would have thought it was closer to the 50s and 60s. I admit that I don’t know a lot about baseball, but I found the situations the team faced and complexities intriguing. I could well imagine the dangers they faced and just how sketchy living out of a bus could be; not knowing if you’ll make enough to continue playing the game they loved. And for young Bo, gaining the experience he needed to take the next step in returning home and trying out for the big league. Especially at a time when others felt he was too old, and too set in his ways to adapt to the expectations of those running the team.
I really liked Bo. He was such a simple guy. He trusted Rainbow, loved to play baseball, lived simple, and fell for the wrong woman. He didn’t conform, but he also wasn’t striving to make waves, and yet he did. By the end I wanted so much more for him than what he got. And once I got into the flow of the story and used to the tone, I was eager to see where the author would take me. Now, one other thing that almost did not work for me the first time Mr. Boylan did this was when he wanted to describe three things happening at once. It felt disjointed and the missing punctuation threw me off. The second time around it worked better, but it was confusing initially. Aside from that, I enjoyed reading about Rainbow and Bo, and will actually try to get my husband who IS a huge baseball fan to read this too.  He’s not a big reader so if he does, that says a lot for the story. So again, if you like baseball, then I would recommend you give this one go. 4 fangs.

Consensual By Livia Jamerlan

Book One – Consensual

 

Braelynn Wolf is focused on two things: work and law school. 

That is how she survives. 


That is how she’ll make a difference.

Until she meets HIM.


Peyton Haas is sexy, dangerous, and forbidden. The defense attorney on Braelynn’s first legal case is the only man who can cloud her judgment. Unable to stay away, she finds herself lying to everyone around her so she can spend time with the man who makes her feel things she never felt before—things she never dreamed possible.

With the legal case hanging on a thread, can Braelynn ignore the relationship she has built with Peyton? 

Or will she succumb to the man who has the power to throw away her future?

review2
In Consensual, we meet Braelynn Wolf. Braelynn is an up and coming law student, who works hard to obtain an internship at her professor’s law firm which she gets. While living with her best friend Kennedy, Braelynn does some cleaning to make extra money, and parties with close friends Kennedy and Gus. Braelynn is a very interesting main character, with a not so happy past, including the familial sexual abuse of her older sister. While out partying, Braelynn meets love ’em and leave ’em Haas. The sexual attraction is strong, and Braelynn goes back to his place. Unfortunately for Haas, something happens to sober Braelynn up and she leaves him wanting. To Braelynn’s horror, Mr. Peyton Haas is the opposing counsel on the very first case she is assisting on. With the misunderstanding cleared up, Peyton wastes no time pursuing Braelynn and, even though it could spell the end of her career, Braelynn can’t resist him….well, who could? Yes, he’s that hot! While working on the case, Braelynn finds something against the defendant and digs deeper, trying to get to the bottom of it, determined to bring him to justice one way or the other. Unfortunately, what she’s digging for has nothing to do with the case and could, again, put her job in jeopardy. Consensual is told from a dual point of view, it flows back and forth between Braelynn and Peyton and does it very well. The sexual tension between these two is scorching hot. Peyton is Haas in the bedroom/playroom, and the erotic scenes are extremely well-done. The writing is fluid, and the characters are engaging and very well-developed. The plot? Well, that’s going to take you on a wild ride with an ending that will leave you wanting more or, more likely, needing more as it does leave you hanging, shaking your ereader and moaning, “No, it can’t end there!” 4 Fangs

Book Two – Coherent


A tragic past. A forgotten week. A broken heart.

When Braelynn wakes up in a hospital bed with a week of her life missing, she turns to the darkness that she didn’t know she craved.


Lost and confused she’s left empty.Addiction. Fear. A broken soul.

Peyton Haas is self–assertive, determined to get what he wants, and for the first time in his life—in love.But is he willing to face the demons that haunt Braelynn?

Their love was like no other—steamy, heart–stopping… Beautiful.

It was the first time the either of them had let someone in. But one week was all it took to change their lives forever

Will their love be enough to keep them together?

review2

Sinking into the depths of despair after losing a week of her life that she can’t remember, drugged and raped, Braelynn Wolf is devastated when no one believes her over the proof to the contrary. All she wants is for Peyton, Kennedy, Gus and Loren to believe her. She sees in their eyes that they don’t, which leads Braelynn to do what she does when faced with adversity, she runs. Losing her dream job, still having the drugs in her system, all Braelynn wants to do is numb the pain. Spiraling down into misery, Braelynn tries to numb the pain with alcohol, drugs, sex and men. Coherent is a raw and gritty story, not for the faint of heart. The depths Braelynn finds are pretty nasty, and more is left to our imagination. Meanwhile, Kennedy, Gus, Loren and Peyton are all in touch with each other seeking out news of her, as she has pretty much disappeared off the face of the earth. Even the private detective Peyton hires cannot find her. She calls Loren, her sister, and Gus to let them know she is all right, every now and then. When circumstances lead to Peyton finding her, it is not pretty, and Braelynn comes to the realization she doesn’t want to continue this way. Her strength of character shines through as she tries to get her life back together, all the while denying Peyton’s help. Livia Jamerlan takes you on a journey, a dark journey into the depths of mental and physical anguish, despair and perceived betrayal. Braelynn is absolutely not the same person she was in the first book; it’s not possible she could be. However, neither is Peyton Haas. His darker side comes out in response to the changes in Braelynn. Although I had an “Are you kidding me?” moment and was torn out of the book with Braelynn’s jealousy and how Peyton calmly chased after her, it wasn’t enough to alter my enjoyment of the book. It just felt, with all she’d been through and how Peyton had fought for her, she should have been way past that type of reaction. Coherent is a hot, erotic, sensual, well-written novel that will flay your emotions. It is not stand-alone, and I would not recommend reading it without having read Consensual first. 4 Fangs

Book Three – Contingent

COMING SOON – RELEASE MARCH 2015


Contingent_Front

Braelynn and Peyton are finally headed down a path without torment—until he allows someone else to come between them.

With the remnants of her broken heart scattered, Braelynn begins to piece herself back together, piece by ragged piece.

Peyton has dark secrets of his own. Secrets that leave him no choice but to walk away from the only woman he’s ever loved.

But his desire for Braelynn has him fighting between what he wants, and what he needs to do to keep her safe.

Love can only withstand so much. The connection between Braelynn and Peyton has been tested before—could this be their breaking point.

EXCERPT

She lay naked on the white linen sheet, her golden blonde hair fanned out across her pillow. She had been my all, the one to come into my life, cause havoc, and claim my heart. She had been my everything. My greatest desire. The fuel that pumped through my veins.

The sun beamed down on her skin, glistening on her flawless fair body. Almostflawless anyway.

The marks from our recent times in the playroom were still visible, her wrists that were tucked under her chin revealing a crimson burn from her pulling on the restraints. Her plump breast scarred from the lashes of the flogger, and her upper thighs holding the same marks as her breast.

I was terrified at the pain I had caused her, but horrified that I wanted to cause more.

Braelynn had repeated over and over that she loved the marks and the pleasures they gave her. Since she had rejected my proposal, I began to feel that she was slipping away. The grasp I had over her was fading and my need for her had been replaced with rage and want. I needed to punish her for saying no, whip her flesh when I felt her slipping out of my hands. Though I was sickened once we were done, massaging the welts kissing them with my love, I reveled in her moans and her screams of pleasure made me hungry for more.

She had turned me into the monster I now was. Possessive, demanding, and hungrier for her than I had ever been. Her arousal when I slid deep inside her had me on the brink of losing myself. The way she came around me, choking my cock … it was indescribable. But when she bowed her head, her blonde hair covering her face as she submitted to me, that had my inner Dom crawling out of my body, wanting to take full reign over hers.

And I did.

For the past six weeks she’d spent every night with me, letting me have full possession of her weak body. But the nagging voice in my head kept saying that our time was limited.

“You’re doing it again,” she whispered, her voice filled with exhaustion. Her eyes peered open when she spoke.

I leaned forward, kissing the tip of her nose. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I lied.

“Yes, you do. You’re thinking so loud I can hear it in my sleep.”

“Lynn—”

“Stop it!” Her eyes flashed open, and a sea of green and brown specks pierced me. “You aren’t hurting me.”

I shook my head, completely disagreeing with her. “Look at the bruises on your skin.” I traced my hand over her soft breast.

“I have a safe word and I have yet to use it.” She pulled the cover over her blemished flesh and turned on her side.

She hadn’t used it yet…

But would she?

Though Livia kept a journal throughout her early life, she never thought about pursuing a career in writing. She always used it as form of therapy, pouring her heart out into words. It wasn’t until a story developed in her head that she decided maybe she could write a book. At first it was just an escape from reality, but now she uses it as a power to put all her feelings, hopes, and fears on paper. Deciding it was time to tell her story, she began to write. With each passing day the story grew, characters were formed, and what seemed like a hobby at first has now become a passion for Livia.
She is a New Jersey Native who loves spending time with her husband and two dogs Buddy and Daisy. When she is not writing or hiding behind her Kindle, you can find her with outside, gardening, at a local shopping center enjoying some retail therapy, or enjoy a pepperoni pizza

The Ilia Stone by R. J. Loom *Review

stpmeNia Williams could never have imagined the way her ordinary life would be turned upside down after the death of her grandfather. A chance find unwittingly has her discovering the truth of an ancient Greek myth, plunging her into a world where the legends she only read about in her history books become her reality.

Plagued with a strange link to others’ past, she follows the path of an ancient artifact around the world and throughout time as it reveals its story to guide her to contain powers once thought lost to the rise of modern religion.

Two men affected by the artifact vie for her allegiance; Gabriel, a man haunted by his own past, and smooth talking Viktor who wants Nia to embrace a life she never imagined.

A love sacrificed… An impossible decision…

As lines blur between right and wrong, how much will Nia be willing to sacrifice?

review2

I give this book 5 fangs ( I really loved it and can’t wait to read the next one!)
When I first started The Ilia Stone I had no idea what to expect Ive read a lot of books and with debut novels it can really be hit or miss. From the first pages I was hooked after reading the introduction about the Greek Gods. My intrigue was piqued I couldn’t wait to see what heroines and Herod  this story would reveal.
I have to say I wasn’t disappointed I loved Nia the funny, sassy, brave and strong heroine. She never thought that one little decision to avoid a gathering after her grandfathers funeral would lead her into a world filled with magic and love, gods and war. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would discover the Ilia Stone a secret immortals have kept to themselves to manipulate the world for good or evil. That she would become one of them. Nia is thrust onto a rollercoaster of actions and emotions due circumstances out of her control.
Along the way at least she has Gabriel an immortal who has tried to keep the Ilia Stone from the hands of those who would use it for evil. He wants to help Nia understand what this new life of hers will be like, but learning  from  a centuries old immortal that has lived a Lonely and tragic life is never easy. Throw in that he’s a sexy and broody alpha and its a explosion waiting to happen.
Enter Viktor…. Well he’s sexy and trouble but hats all I’m saying.

The Ilia Stone had me glued to the pages from beginning to end, I don’t want to spoil anything but their are some great twists and Nia Is able to really prove what a strong person she is but that doesn’t mean it’s easy or that she doesn’t get thrown for a couple of loops along the way.
I loved the chemistry between Gabriel and Nia there were definitely some hot scenes;)
RJ Loom does a great job and I can’t wait to read the next one. I would
Recommend this to anyone that loves paranormal romance or just a good read.
