daniell review 5 star aFantastic start to this serial!! If you are a fan of Selena Laurence, this is not one to miss!

Pax is the son of Walsh and Tammy from the Lush series. Although he has grown up in luxury and the son of a well-known musician, Pax is determined to make it in the music industry on his own. He moves to a small town in Alabama and picks up several gigs and things are really looking up for the budding musician.

Carly is an 18-year-old college student struggling to come to terms with the recent death of her father.  Her father was in trouble with a loan shark right before his death and now they are looking at Carly for payment. One of the loan shark’s thugs tries to grab her up at the beach but a stranger comes to her rescue. 

After coming to this young woman’s rescue, Pax wants to know more about this mysterious, beautiful girl. Carly doesn’t want to involve anyone else in her drama, so she refuses to give Pax her number.  Will Pax be able to find her again? Will Carly be able to get out of the predicament she has found herself in?

I’ve only read one other serial and have never been much of a fan but this one is off to an amazing start!! I am very intrigued as to what will happen next. Selena Laurence is such a talented author and creates such strong characters that you can’t help but love. I’m waiting on pins and needles for the next installment!!!

christie review 5 star aTwo words: LOVED IT!!!! Pax is the son of the legendary Lush rock star, Walsh. He leaves his parents in Oregon and moves to a small town in Alabama to make it on his own, so no one knows who his famous father is. One day while on the beach, the beautiful, Carly, enters his life in a most unforgettable way. He rescues her from being kidnapped after hearing her scream and seeing her struggling with a thug. After she leaves safely with her roommate, he regrets not knowing more about her. He can’t seem to forget her, but fortunately she soon meets her again. Each time seems to involve her fighting off the same man. However, her predicament doesn’t scare Pax off. He wants to save her! But, their road to romance will be fraught with danger!

I’m not a huge fan of serials, but I decided to give this one a try because I love ANYTHING by Selena Laurence. I am so glad I downloaded it; it was fantastic! It was short but packed with so much substance and suspense. It didn’t hurt that the guys from Lush are mentioned in it either…I mean Pax is Walsh’s son, and I love Walsh! I am anxiously awaiting the next installment.

~ REVIEW: Thane’s Redemption (The Song #1) by Nina Crespo ~

30 Jan

23403874RELEASES MARCH 3RD 2015!

SynopsisThe one night she’ll want to remember, she’ll be forced to forget.

It’s been almost a year since Celine’s fiancé’s death and she’s still struggling to move on. But when she meets Thane, the super hot lead singer of Thane’s Redemption, she finds her desire reawakening, and her heart opening. Soon one kiss leads them straight into a night of heated passion…
 
Thane’s unexpected connection with Celine only leaves him wanting more of her—but his life makes it impossible. For Thane’s Redemption is just a cover for a deeper secret: A former Army Ranger presumed dead, Thane is really a time-traveling, covert operative charged with saving the world from disaster. Each jump through time forces those around him to forget he ever existed—and Celine would be no exception. But can time work in their favor to give them a second chance at love? Or will a choice Thane makes in the future put Celine in mortal danger?…

michele review 4 starsThis book was definitely interesting and I was glad I was able to read it! This was the first book I’ve read by Nina Crespo and I’m going to be looking out for more books written by her.

I feel like this book is about second chances (or third and fourth in Thane’s case). Both Celine and Thane have had things taken from them in the base due to the fight for freedom. Thane was taken from his fiancé when his plane crashed and he had to make a life altering decision, and Celine lost her fiancé when he died over seas. They both know the pain of losing someone you love, but can they overcome that pain with each other?

Thane is one sexy rock star that can travel thru time and saves thousands of lives with the work that they do. He’s had a string of one night stands for the last five years and hasn’t really remembered a single one. That is until he see Celine. She’s caught his eye and he can’t seem forget her no matter how hard he tries. Their one night together was so hot and mind blowing, and then after how they connected shocked and saddened him. He wants to be that man by her side but he knows there is no way he can be there for her.

Events happen and things change and the spark is still there. Will Celine and Thane ever get that chance to bet together or will the choice that Thane made years ago get in the way?

The ending to the book was interesting and I’m going to be patiently waiting (well not really) to see what happens next! If you are looking for something that is a quick read, has super spicy sex scenes and will leave you begging for more, this is the book for you!

~ AUDIO BOOK REVIEW: You by Caroline Kepnes ~

29 Jan

81TrjwNHXdL._SL1500_SynopsisFrom debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of 2014, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age.

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery.

christie review 4 and a half starsI’m not quite sure how to begin this review because it is the most complicated yet riveting and thrilling book I have read in a while! It sucked me in from the very beginning, and I had trouble hitting the pause button every time I had to quit listening. I will include a brief synopsis; I don’t want to spoil anything whatsoever about this book. Beck is a recent graduate of Brown. Little does she realize her life is getting ready to drastically change and will never be the same again. She walks into a cozy bookstore where she meets the young manager, Joe. They start a simple conversation that really anybody could have when paying for a purchase. But, it’s not simple for Joe. He is intrigued with Beck and convinces himself that he is in love with her…yes, at first sight. He remembers her name from her debit card and Googles her. It isn’t hard for him to find out all he needs to know about her. She is obsessed with social media and posts EVERYTHING on Facebook and Twitter. Thus, begins a tale of dark obsession, lies, and sex as Joe methodically insinuates himself into Beck’s life without her even having a clue she is the object of his obsession.

Santino Fontana is an amazing narrator. He pulled me into the character of Joe and into his disturbing yet sometimes intriguing dark mind. I can’t believe I am admitting that I pulled for Joe throughout this novel. You won’t understand why until you listen to Joe’s thoughts, and then you might be Team Joe. There are so many twists and turns and layers to the characters. I was shocked and terrified at times about the inner workings of the minds of other characters such as Beck and her superficial friends. No character is what they seem. Again, you will understand once you listen to Joe. Not only is this a book of darkness and obsession, but it’s an important lesson on the dangers of social media and who might be out there watching from the shadows at our postings. I will be more careful in the things that I post! The book title was perfect…You… as it is a book about selfishness and manipulation and always thinking about well…yourself!

Give this book a listen if you like a dark, psychological read. It is not a romance, but it is addictive! I promise you once Santino Fontana utters his first word, you will more than likely become obsessed with Joe!

**This is a review of the Audible version of the novel.**

SynopsisMarry me.

Two words Kalli Montgomery never expected to say out loud to Xavier Cruz, even though she’s been in love with the sexy, single father for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, she hasn’t just been friend-zoned for the past ten years. No, even worse, he’s treated her like a little sister, no matter how hard she tried to prove she could be so much more. When she agrees to spend the summer as the caregiver for his daughter, Lily, she knows it’s her last chance to finally make him take notice.

As unexpected circumstances threaten to disrupt his home life, Xavier’s desperate to keep his family together. He’ll do whatever it takes, even if it means marrying a woman he doesn’t love. For Xavier and Lily, Kalli will do just about anything, even at the risk of getting her heart broken in the process.

Little does she know, sometimes love isn’t quite as unrequited as one may think. Xavier sees her-he always has. And the vow he made all those years ago never to go there with his best friend’s little sister is wavering, and it’s wavering fast. When they come up with a plan that leads to wedding bells, it’s a no brainer.

This marriage of convenience has one rule: absolutely no falling in love.

Easier said than done. Throw together a girl who believes rules are meant to be broken, and a man whose whole career revolves around following orders and you get a recipe for disaster. What could possibly go wrong?

Excerpt

Shooting a glare at him, I throw my hands up in exasperation. “Are you telling me that this whole anticipation thing is one-sided? Is it that easy for you to resist? I really need to step up my game.”

Xavier’s eyes fall to my lips for a quick moment before he looks back up at me. I see the desire in his expression, and without him even saying a word, I know he wants this, too. So why is he making me wait?

“You have no idea how much I want to kiss you right now. How many times I’ve thought of doing just that. Every time you were curled up against me on the couch, I wanted to kiss you. Every morning when you showed up, I wanted to kiss you. Every time you said goodnight to Lily and then slipped out my door? I wanted to kiss you before you left. It’s not a new development. The first time I ever saw you, Kalli, I wanted to kiss you. And I’ve wanted to ever since.”

His admission floors me. He’s told me before that he “saw” me, but I had no clue it was from the very beginning. I’m not really sure how to process it. In fact, he beats me to the punch.

“So now you know. This will be just as hard for me, but it will be so damn worth it. Because when you’ve wanted something for as long as I’ve wanted you? It’ll be the best feeling in the world when I finally get it.”

“Our first kiss will be that epic?”

“A first kiss to rival them all,” he quips, grinning at me. He holds his arms out wide. “Now, we’ll start with a hug and work our way up.”

“I feel like I’m sixteen again,” I tell him as I wrap my arms around his waist.

His hands come down to my back and he gives me a big squeeze, my head pressing against his firm chest. I love this feeling of being in his arms, him holding me close. There’s nowhere on the planet I’d rather be than right here with him. As much as I want him, I know he’s right. I don’t care when it comes. Because when it does, our first kiss will be unforgettable.

His chest rumbles as he chuckles. He squeezes me tight one last time before letting me go. “And it’s only just the beginning,” he tells me. “Have a good night, crazy girl.”
