My Review

My Boyfriend is a Senator by Linda Davis

Well everyone, hold on to a box of kleenex, cuz this one will make you cry. Taylor is our main character and she is in need of some love, or that’s what I see, and some acceptance. She really just needs a friend and a hug too. And when she finally does start opening up and the truth comes out, it’s gunna knock the breath out of you. And it’ll make you want to hug her more.

Missing by Mary Laufer

This one is the thrill ride of the book. The characters are definitely well written and have complexity that make them feel so real. And then it’s like The Killing meets Prisoners, because you just want to know what happens. You’ll search and search and search some more. WOW! And I still want to know what happens!!

The Outlaw by Scott C. Davis

This one is well written, but I wanted a little more from it. I wanted more feelings and more explanations, and though the story is not bad, I’m thinking that because the first two of this book had me so into them that I just needed… more. Now, without making you think that this is a bad story or anything like that, because it’s not, I definitely can feel for the main character. And he has his really good moments. 

Drive by Nealy Gihan

Is it sad that all I want to do is slap these people. LOL These are the types of characters that are well written, but jeez Louise I didn’t like them. I wanted Trevor to grow the hell up, like yesterday, and I wanted Simona to figure out that Trevor is not who she should be with.  And the plot has a very interesting line to it.

The Talisman by Heather Hildenbrand

Don’t be surprised, but this one is my favorite, of course because my favorite lady wrote it 🙂 Plus I love demons and this is the first Heather has gone into that particular supernatural being. Well done! I don’t wanna wait, Heather, you better start looking into making this into a book, a big one, with some more following that.  I loved the beginnings of how this world operates, so come on now, gimme gimme!! 🙂 

As an overall, this is a book that is gritty, and quite dark, but still a great read. And as always, there are some better than others, but it’s only an opinion, so 4.5 PAWS because all of these stories together make an awesome pairing!

Cover to be revealed


Shinigami Eyes

(Shinigami Eyes #1)

Most children hope to grow out of their imaginary friends.

17-year-old Rin Waters’ only hope is that hers doesn’t kill someone, especially when said imaginary friend puts a boy in a coma. Finding herself shipped half-way around the world—to Japan, of all places—she is forced to live with grandparents she hasn’t seen for ten years and a cousin she can’t even remember.

Rin would rather just forget about the one night that ruined her life and pretend her imaginary friend doesn’t exist—if it was only that easy. When manga-obsessed otaku, Matt, won’t stop pestering her about a manga that sees the future and the tragic accident she’ll be involved in if she doesn’t listen to him, pretending becomes quite a challenge.

Suddenly mysterious accidents begin to happen to students in her school, and Rin has to wonder what length Matt is willing to go to prove his manga is real. Is it all a sham or is there really something that wants to see Rin and her new friends dead?

Schooling the Player by Allie K. Adams: Women throw themselves at star pitcher Zach “Breaker” Evans, and he plays the field. When curvy Becca Porter moves in next door and treats him as nothing more than a neighbor, he goes all-out for her attention. One night, one party, and one winner-takes-all bet, changes everything.

Inside Heat by Roz Lee: Identical twins Jeff and Jason Holder share everything on and off the field, including Megan Long. When Jeff is injured, he could lose everything he loves: Megan, his brother, and his career. It’s going to take more than physical therapy to mend relationships and get him back on the mound. It’s all fun and games until someone falls in love.

Fire on Ice by Dakota Madison: Firestorm Center Kian Kavanagh dominates the ice like a rock star on stage. After Taylor Thompson’s heart was shattered by her high school’s most popular jock, she vowed never to date another athlete, but after a chance meeting with Kian, Taylor’s walls are in danger of being burned down by Mr. Fire on Ice.
