Cover Design: Shanoff Formats

Synopsis


Are you a hero yet?
Her words rang in my head.
I wanted to be.
For you, I want to be, I told her in my dream, the dream where she kissed me again.
A hero-worthy kiss.
Stay safe, she had said. Come back to me.
My lips tingled.
The brush of hers over mine a memory held in the blackest of night,
the hottest of desert days,
and the cold-evil hell of war against hidden enemies.
I wanted another chance to taste those lips,
melt them against mine,
and mold her body to me.
I wanted to live.
For Katie.

About the Author
Avid drinker of Coca-Cola, L.B. Dunbar loves the sweet things in life. Her affair with all things romantic began with her first book at the tender age of six: Goldilocks and the Three Bears. One can never forget her first! From there, the reading journey includes a deep love of fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused, yes, that’s the correct word, of having an over active imagination; to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over a dozen novels, she’s created small town worlds, rock star mayhem, and MMA chaos. Her other duties in life include: mother to four growing children and wife to the one and only.

New Review! Stockholm Sexy by Logan Keys, 5 Cranky Stars

Stockholm SexyStockholm Sexy by Logan Keys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



***** 5 Cranky Stars *****

Logan Keys' Stockholm Sexy is a dark and gritty organisd crime book that pulls no punches. It has the feel of L.J. Shen's Sparrow and A. Zavarelli's Crow, but with more ominous shadows.



Deirdre Mel is beautiful, deadly, and oh so trapped. She's in the murder business, but they won't let her out, even though she dreams of a life beyond this.



Abducted as a child and trained to kill, there's only one way out for Dee: a coffin and six feet under. They say she's family, but they're lying. She's alive because she's useful and when she's no longer useful... she's disposable.



As Dee's dreams for escape becomes a longing she can't ignore, she needs to work out a way to kill or be killed by the forces aligned against her.

New Review! Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen, 4 Cranky Stars

Confessions of a Former Puck BunnyConfessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



**** 4 Cranky Stars ****

Puck Bunny definition: A puck bunny is a female ice hockey fan whose interest in the sport is primarily motivated by sexual attraction to the players rather than enjoyment of the game itself.



Lindsay is a former Puck Bunny. She went to games to salivate over the players and occasionally hooking up. She broke the cardinal rule though, never fall in love with a hockey player. Since then she's sworn off all things hockey until Ryder skates into her life.



Confession #14: I'm a hot mess.



Ryder is focused and stoic. He's a star defenseman at BC and an all around good guy. In his spare time he volunteers in the math tutoring center where he finally meets Lindsay.



"This girl’s already mine. She just doesn’t know it yet."



This story is heartwarming. The characters were strong and likeable. I look forward to reading more from this author.

New Review! Dark Stranger by I.T. Lucas, 3 Cranky Stars


Dark Stranger the Dream (The Children of the Gods, #1)Dark Stranger the Dream by I.T. Lucas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Syssi, a research student with the ability of precognition, works for the beautiful and talented Dr. Amanda Dokani at a neuroscience laboratory. Plagued by a recurring nightmare that feels more like premonition than a dream, Syssi finds herself dragged into a world she didn't know existed and in the midst of a millennia-old war between immortals. One who wants to foster enlightenment in humanity and the other who wants to keep it in the dark ages.



Kian is the leader of the American-based contingent of immortals When his sister, Amanda, tries her hand at matchmaking, Kian and Syssi cross paths. Syssi might be the key to the immortals' survival - that is if she survives.



I picked this book up on a whim and for the most part, enjoyed it. It seems to be a hybrid: PNR, fantasy, a bit of sci-fi, and romance. The premise is interesting. I enjoyed the backstory and world building in it, but it seems to be more about setting up for a series than focussing on key aspects for this book.



For example, there were a lot of point of views - some I thought were redundant and didn't really add anything to the storyline. One chapter was out of order and there was also a lot of repetition from character descriptions to points that had been well-established. I think the work would've been tighter with the dual points of view of Kian and Syssi and resolved their parts in the series. In essence, I think the book tried to do too much and focus on everybody, which seemed to lose the tension that was building.



This has the potential to be a good series and I look forward to following on.

New Review! Kingdom by A.M. Johnson, 5 Cranky Stars

Kingdom (Avenues Ink #2)Kingdom by A.M. Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



***** 5 Cranky Stars *****

Liam is very dedicated to his family. Along with his brothers he brings Avenues Ink back to the spotlight. Yet his dedication and hard work wasn't without struggles and sacrifice. It's in that very tattoo shop he meets Kelly. She becomes his queen to his struggling kingdom and his best friend. He tries to balance his love for Kelly and his love for his family.



Kelly's dad was abusive not just with his fists but with his words. He always told her she was pretty and that was all she had going for her. Tagging along with a friend one night they walk into Avenues Ink. It's here that Kelly's world explodes. Her and Liam become inseparable. She thinks her life begins and ends with him.



AM Johnson blends the past and present into this book in such a unique way. I've never honestly seen it done so well. Your heart will break for these two but I promise it will be put back in place.
