I say FINALLY because I have been waiting to read this book for quite some time.  As what some might say a “recent” fan of Dr. Who and time travel interests in general this book has been twisting in my peripheral for quite some time.  (although I must say that if you really want to get into specifics time travel roms have always interested me and Gwyn Cready’s series is still one of my faves despite the connection to Pittsburgh…. hehehe….. sorry you can’t take the hockey completely out of me…. and as many know I am not a Pens fan) But wait…… I was talking about this amazing book by Rysa Walker called Timebound that I adored!  So without any more diversions here is what I thought and why I think you should all go and purchase this one immediately!!!

Timebound (the Chronos files book 1) by Rysa Walker

5 Hockeystyxxx

Kate is your typical teenager trying to deal with normal girl things.

Boys.  Best Friends.  School.  Family.

Splitting her time between divorced parents homes and trying not to chose a side between them especially when her estranged grandmother comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse, Kate has no idea who to believe. When she is attacked on her way to school by a man who steals her backpack and the bizarre book her grandmother had given her a handsome stranger helps her out; but not without giving her a warning and a kiss that brought a vision of more.  When she gets back to her grandmother and the sanctuary of her home, things gets even more twisted in her life when her very existence is threatened.  She has no choice but to believe in what her grandmother and her assistant have told her….  That she carries a gene that allows her to travel through time when she goes to her school and witnesses for herself that she does not exist in the current timeline.  Meeting a guy that not only believes her when she spills her secrets but wants to help her is her bright light through dealing with the loss of her whole life as she knew it but when she must go back in time and stop a threat to her grandmother that will bring massive changes to the world as they know it she has to go it alone.  Headed back to Chicago and the Worlds Fair of 1893, Kate encounters many obstacles as she tries to stop not only a murder but catastrophic changes in reality that will change the world forever.  All while facing the reality that if she is successful she will lose the person that helped her through the worst days of her life.

I’m stopping from giving any more “spoilers” and saying please pick this one up for yourself.  Yes it is of the Y/A genre but it doesn’t read like a lot of those in that category. It is a captivating read that has me salivating for more.  Kate’s journey through this book is never boring and it moves at a very fast pace.  The poor girl is thrown so many curves in the span this, her first story, but she bats away almost every threat with the maturity of a woman who has lived many lives.  The fact that this is in itself true set aside.  Dealing with losing everyone she loved, the suspected betrayal of those who should embrace her, and the multiple realities that have her heart split between two guys who love her and are willing to sacrifice everything to save her is a lot for anyone but Kate pulls no punches.  She keeps kicking and fighting and I can’t wait to see where the future takes her…. or shall I say the past? The second book in the series

Vampire Trouble by Sara Humphreys

Vampire Trouble

Vampire Trouble


5 Tombstones

Shane Quesada, Presidium Sentry had been existing. Doing what was needed to protect the current czar’s and those before them. Never did he imagine that the legend was true about a bloodmate and never did he think that he would find his in the form of a feisty newly turned vampire with a turbulent past.

Maya wanted more than working in the bar for her maker. She needed to remember her past, find a way to stop hating the world and have some adventure along the way. Taking a position in another bar with a very different vampire than the ones she was with was a start. Dealing with the visiting werewolf royalty would give her something else to concentrate on other than the continued dreams of her violent past and of the sexy vampire that somehow breached her mind and was now becoming a totally different focus for her. One that she wasn’t sure she could handle.

Leaving the city together, the two escape the threat that is after Maya but find themselves entering a very different threat. One that neither wanted to fight as they give in to the bloodmate bond that would bring them closer to each other than any before. With the incite of a powerful gypsy, they find more than they expected when looking into Maya’s past and with that new knowledge it gives her a new weapon to use against the threat chasing her down.

This is one powerful, heart wrenching and emotional story. As much as I loved Tall, Dark and Vampire I think I lost my heart to Shane in this story. The stalwart vampire had always followed the rules, kept to himself and fought for the Presidium, never thinking of himself or his wants and needs. His connection to Maya is beautiful, their journey emotional and touching as she found a way to release the “demons” chasing her and give in to her desires to be loved by a man and push the terrors behind her. Maya is a strong heroine and she captivated me with her determination and the way she pushed through even after her heart was crushed to do what was right for everyone in their world. I was most impressed with the way she grew and blossomed from a self centered creature to one who was willing to sacrifice for everyone from one book to the next made this book hard to put down. Kudos Ms. Humphreys! Can’t wait to read the next one!

Never Seduce a Scot by Maya Banks

5 Hockeystyxxx

King Alexander II sent a decree to Lairds Armstrong and Montgomery that neither clan could ignore. There would be a wedding and his most valued supporters would have to put their hatred towards each other aside as they would join their families as soon as possible putting all their animosity in the past. Graeme Montgomery could not believe that his line would now end with him after the King had ordered him to take the daft woman to be his bride. What could come of a union with a woman who was sheltered because of her infirmary?

Eveline Armstrong had lost her hearing after a fall escaping a wedding to a man who was adept at hiding his true self to even her own family. A man with two faces. The loving, caring ‘husband to be’ and nobleman to everyone else; and the torturing, vile, lecherous man to his bride. Losing the use of her voice was altogether another problem. What started out as her taking time to recuperate ended up as the only way out of a marriage from hell. At the Montgomery keep Eveline soon has an ally in her sister in law, Rorie. Her secret now in danger of being revealed she needs to find a way to tell her husband that she is not daft but scared of Ian McHugh and the life she needed to escape.

Eveline finds her way into the hearts of the new clan but not before she slaves herself causing irreparable rifts between the Laird and the women of the castle. Realizing their mistake too late when she is betrayed and kidnapped and it will take a true truce and merging of the two enemies to defeat the kidnapper and save Eveline from the fate awaiting her.

Maya Banks never disappoints. Picking up a thrilling contemporary, an erotic historical or a sexy highland escape that has Ms. Bank’s name on the cover always delivers a story that will wrap you up in emotion, titillate your senses and have you scouring for more as soon as they book is back on the nightstand. Needless to say book hangovers are pretty much a given when I pick up her books and this one did not disappoint. Graeme and Eveline’s story was all of what I said above and more. Eveline was a strong and brave heroine who had to find a way to survive, giving up a connection that she once shared with her family and with the horses she loved to protect herself from the threat that hung over her life. Graeme is a gruff and battle scarred warrior but he opens his heart to the woman he is forced to wed and soon finds himself captivated by the beauty that his silent but determined wife by his side. I hate to be cliché but I cannot wait for more highland tales from Ms. Banks and am positive that it will prove to be another delicious escape.

Seven Years to Sin by Sylvia Day

5/5 Hockey Styxx

On the day of her wedding Lady Jessica Sheffield watches as the decedent and indecent Alistair plays with his latest paramour in the gazebo; all the while keeping contact with her eyes, with her soul. Running into her betrotheds arms, Jessica all but throws herself to him, begging to be taken even before the vows are read. With her beloved Benedict gone a year now it is time for Jessica to take care of business, planning to head back to the island and the plantation her husband had left to her. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would meet up with Alistair again or the power he held over her after 7 long years. The power to make her weep with need and desire like he had done so briefly without a touch under the waning moon so long ago.

Alistair Caulfield had never gotten over the one woman who had captivated his heart so long ago despite their very brief yet intimate interlude and the connection made despite never touching each other. Now a successful merchant he had stayed away as much to be out of his father’s reach as to stay away from Lady Jessica. When her brother in law asked his favor in keeping the widow safe on her journey he could neither say no nor submerge his desire to finally capture the woman of his dreams. No other had captured his heart and no other could come closer than the Lady Jessica herself.

Taking a return trip back to the islands was not what he intended but it would give him the chance to see Jessica as she is now and attempt to win her over especially when he not only had purchased a berth on the ship she intended to sail on but owned that ship and others thanks to his determination to prove himself. Jessica had never forgotten the passion that Alistair had stirred within her but the younger man had always been much too arrogant in his preening for her to admit her notice even with her betrothal to a man who had captured her heart. Tarley had once held her heart and admittedly a comfortable passion but it was nothing like the erotic intensity that Alistair ignited within her and a temptation that she could not deny.

Whew. This erotic historical delight was beyond what I was expecting when I opened the first pages. I was absolutely enthralled in their arousing and exciting adventure that led them to opening up themselves to both passion and love like they had never found before. A little danger, a lot of spice and a fantastically delicious helping of sexy sensual interludes combine to deliver one of the best historical reads I have read this year. I loved their interactions, their emotional bond and their intimate explorations as they give in to a connection that they had let simmer for 7 years before consummating it this exceptional read.

Hunter’s job as a personal trainer didn’t pay all the bills but along with his job as a bouncer at Rotten he was getting to where he wanted to be. The only place else he needed to go involved the sexy Pilates instructor Olivia. Damn but he wanted to ride her like she rode those bikes in the spin class she taught. Seeing her put on a show at the bar was beyond hot and he hoped to hell she wasn’t really into the girl that was now tight up against her. Where he needed to be.

Olivia had wanted Hunter from the first moment she saw him at the gym. Too shy to take a chance she had almost growled at his client today when she had put her claws on his toned chest in front of her. Tonight she was going to step it up though and with the help of her best friend and some dirty dancing at the club he worked at she was hopefully going to put the shyness behind her and let him know what she wanted from him.

Oh. My. Gawd. Damn it if Cassandra Carr didn’t raise the temperature even higher during this heat wave with the spontaneous combustion between Olivia and Hunter when they finally came together for the first time in a passionate, scorching exhibition. With this book being little more than a morsel it delivered a bite that was full of sinfully delicious erotic temptation. The chemistry between the two continues throughout their foray into sexting and culminates with a scene that will leave you breathless and wanting. Pick this one up and be delighted with the heat that it delivers!

This book was given to me by the author for an honest review and I honestly loved every bite of it! Releasing on July 19 from Ellora’s Cave Exotica Quickies line.

Being Me by Lisa Renee Jones

5 Hockeystyxxx

Warning this review does contain spoilers:

Temptation. Desire. Indecisions. Danger.

Sara McMillan had faced all of these feelings and more as she worked through her relationship with Chris Merit but it was the distraction of the diary her friend Ella had found in the storage locker that consumed her thoughts when she wasn’t devoured by the passion of their relationship. The thought of discovering who it was that Rebecca had called Master and where she had disappeared to was a desperate and all-consuming thought in her mind. Returning to the locker where Rebecca’s life was in storage, caught up in her own questions about Chris’ life and what he really wants from her only intensifying, everything goes dark. Someone has something to hide besides the missing woman and Sara’s fears as well as Chris’s are that she has stumbled into something much more sinister. Chris’ sudden return from his trip couldn’t have come at a better time. Sara needs him but even after she agrees to staying at his place while they investigate she won’t leave her job behind at the gallery. Even after he confirms that the Master in Rebecca’s journals is who she suspects. Confronting her boss at work, Sara needs confirmation she is there for more than a pull toy to be tugged between two men. Two men who were once friends and shared a past. He wants her and will use praising her in the job she wants to do it. Pulled between Chris and Mark Sara struggles with her feelings for both despite knowing which man already owns her heart. If only she could open up her mouth and admit that she already belongs to Chris…but after the journal she can’t honestly belong to anyone. Despite her insecurities she IS WITH him. Hopefully that will be enough. Meeting Ryan Kilmer she realizes it to be another test of Marks, but instead he sets her at ease but the meeting with Ricco, was something different, even though she had initially trusted the man. With a body guard following her for her peace of mind the meeting goes better than expected but with the sudden appearance of the man waiting outside everything changes. Chris waiting on outside, blowing off his meetings for her, sets something new off in their relationship. Mark has been outright in his desire to mold her but Chris holds her heart even though the trust is not entirely there yet. Going away with him, letting his investigators look into both Rebecca and Ella’s disappearances. Things seem to be going well until the news of a young boy Chris has let get under his skin is losing his battle with Cancer. His darkness threatens but Sara pulls him back only to be confronted with her own demons. Facing two men who hurt her in the past she struggles with her own darkness and has to make a choice which man to lean on. Chris can’t allow her to leave but he also has to struggle to keep himself together. They will have to work at it but things don’t go smoothly when he once again won’t give her the honest truth about his connection with Rebecca. Running to Mark once again, after almost giving in to him and Ryan, the truth there is even uglier when revelations about Rebecca are revealed and she stares death in the face as her involvement with both men triggers events that bring all of their combined fates into play.

I anxiously awaited this book from the very minute I finished If I Were You. Actually holding on to my opinion so as not to let lose a torrent of spoilers was hard when I received an early e copy. Very hard! Being Me is beyond what I expected from Ms. Lisa and that is saying a lot since I always expect perfection from her stories and am never disappointed. Sara, the quiet kindergarten teacher has always tried to shy away from the world that she is now wrapped up in but with each day she realizes that she needs not only the job but the dominant men in her life. Sara faces a myriad of emotional and physical choices in both her personal and professional life as she opens up her life to Chris and stands beside him as he reveals the darkness inside of him. Chris is even darker this time around which I loved. The rich, casual, devil-may-care persona reveals cracks especially when he has to face the mortality of someone he cares for, something he chooses to do in his own way, potentially pushing Sara into the arms of another who does not deny his attraction which amps up the tension to a peak that forced me into a book hangover because I couldn’t put it down. BTW….. book hangovers are always good! Answers to many of the questions readers were left pondering are answered in this book but many more are opened wide and help the story evolve and even more are answered in the series of journal entries that give the reader a fascinating look at what similarities Rebecca and Sara have as she writes her innermost feelings down before her disappearance. This story is above and beyond most others who have been grouped into this category of erotica. Lisa weaves a tale that grips you in its emotion then ties you up and binds you to the characters as they submit to their passions, fears and love.

I need to add that this book, series, has been optioned by Starz to be a extraordinary television experience. I for one… cannot wait!

I received an ebook copy of this book for my honest review but I purchased the print copy because I love the story so much I couldn’t wait to hold it in my hands. If you care to help me out follow the Book Depostitory link at the side bar and order yours today.

Take it Like a Vamp by Candace Havens

5 Hockeystyxxx

Casey loved curling up and watching her favorite vampire television show Night Angels with the sexiest man alive but even as she accepted his friendship she knew that there was no way the tall, handsome, gazzillionaire would go for her. She was… well her body had curves, a lot of curves, despite pretty much giving up on carbs since her neighbor decided to spend so much time keeping her company in between his rotating line up of Barbie dates. It didn’t stop her from naming her favorite toy Mr. Nick though.
Nick knew that Casey was not the right woman for him. She was human and even being near him she stirred up a passion and desire like he had never known before. He couldn’t take away her humanity to be with him. The council, forcing him to declare his bride wanted it done this week or he would lose his presidency. Gave in to his craving and gave her the pretty woman treatment with his friend Linc helping him or rather prodding him. When a meeting at the party stole him away from her it was Linc who took her home when she ran from the party.
Alvinia wanted him back for whatever reason and the goth chipmunk, as Casey called her, wasn’t going to take him away from her even though he still told himself it was just pretend. Attacked at work, Casey is near death but pulls through only to have Nick by her side ready to open up and tell her the truth; that he is a vampire, and hoping she doesn’t run. But run she does…for donuts and coffee. Sweeping her away to his island they prep for a quick wedding but the crazy lady breaches the wards and gets her hooks into Casey and the only way to save her is to take the first step. A step that she might hate him for but the only thing Nick can focus on is his hope that Casey will fight back enough to get the bitch out of her head and open her eyes to see how much he loves her.
I loved loved loved this book! I saw so much of myself in Casey it was scary at first! I was like: did Candace write me as a character? Her body and her self image, her likes, her humor and her desire to be wanted by the sexy guy but giving up hope to go out with losers…. Hello! Been there done that. And Nick was so dayum sexy as he worked his way through his true feelings and emotions for Casey! I loved their banter, their connection and their delicious intimacies! Oh and Linc, Nicks best friend…. Yummy bonus candy! So hoping that Ms. Havens decides to continue this world with more stories in the future because one taste of this world was not enough.

I was given this book free through Net Galley and the publisher Entangled for my honest opinion in this review. \

Rebecca’s Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction (INSIDE OUT TRILOGY)

Rebecca’s Lost Journals: The Seduction Volume 1 by Lisa Renee Jones

5 Hockeystyxxx

This review is a little different.  The book I read is a little different.  That is it’s not really a book per se.  It is a journal.  The journal that started it all.  The journal of Rebecca Mason.  One of the journals that were found in an abandoned storage locker that was auctioned off and sent another woman off on the road to her own destiny in the book If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones.   This is the first of six journal volumes that are being released to let the readers get a glimpse into the world that Sara gets wrapped up into.  If you are patiently awaiting the release of the sequels to If I Were You or even holding out for the rerelease of the print of the book that combines the world of Storage Wars with the intrigue of  Basic Instinct these journals will give you an insight that will tweak your imagination and increase your demand for more of this world.

……………

I want to tell you about Rebecca Mason today.  She has a talent with art but she was pursuing a different career.  That is she is a talent for recognizing art but she isn’t the greatest artist at least by her own admission.   I met her when she was our waitress, we became friends and despite giving up on her dreams a while ago I encouraged her to follow those dreams anyway.  Well, I hope we are friends after she finds out what I read in her diary. I hope she knows what she is doing and am wondering if I might want to investigate some more on the subject myself.  I mean there are some tasty bits…. Let me give you a glimpse of what I learned about Rebecca…..

Rebecca had a gift for art and a year after her mother had passed she had given up on her dreams.  Something made her take a step in a new direction; she walked into the gallery she dreamed of working at covering her uniform with her shabby coat and proceeded to put the snooty salesperson in her place.  She also found herself dumbstruck by the man who walked into the gallery.  His raw magnetism galvanized her to the spot until he asked her if she was there for the internship.  Bolting out of the place she thought she had gotten over the shock of being face to face with a man who shook her world with one look.  Plagued by nightmares about her dying mother and a run- away trolley, Rebecca doesn’t know what to think when her dreams soon begin to include the sexy stranger.  The stranger she needed to find.  Mark Compton, owner of Riptide, a famous auction house and gallery.  Her dream job and apparently her dream man.  After he tracked her down she begins a new life as intern but keeps her day job to pay the bills.

Mark totally scrambles her mind but a flirtatious friendship with the suave artist Ricco gains his respect and the hostility of her co-worker (the snobby one Mary).  Her new life and the attraction to Mark aside she couldn’t say no to hot banker guy Josh when he asks her out and comes with wine and a talent that many women would die to experience firsthand.  Nothing like having an over- abundance of admirers (lucky girl), Mark tells her he doesn’t share which sets off so many bells.  Oh and then, here comes the really good stuff…. Mark tells her he wants to Master her.  Even Josh’s talented tongue cannot get her to say no to him.  Apparently she was a natural sub and he WOULD Master her but she had never had a BDSM session before was it something she could do? Yes.  Yes she could and Mark masters her body and soul but now she had to make a decision.  When both Ricco and Josh send her flowers (again lucky girl) it makes her think about what her choices were.  Well that was until Mark makes his point in the limo waiting for her and gives her a contract.  Should she sign it or rip it up?  Rebecca decides that maybe a call to Dr. Kat will give her the answers she needs to find while Mark patiently awaits her decision.  Hopefully she can send her in the right direction.

 

 

Immortally Yours by Angie Fox

5 Hockeystyxxx

Angie Fox, author of the fan favorite Accidental Demon Slayer (Biker Witches) series, has come up with a fantastic new series that blends the paranormal with immortal gods and sets them in a war zone that recruits vampires, weres, demi-gods and humans with not so pure blood, to patch up the casualties of the war in a MASH unit.

Old gods vs. new gods are battling to the death with the souls of the humans both fighting to save the wounded and fighting the battles on the line as well as the entire human existence but there is a chance that the war could be stopped or at least slowed to a standstill if the Oracles predictions come true and the three steps to the prophecy come to pass.  Dr. Petra Robichaud had left behind her New Orleans home and had been patching up wounded in the 3063rd for a few years. Years that she knew she would never see her home or family again.  Low man in the OR, she is thrust into a complicated surgery that leads to her saving a particularly sexy immortal from certain death and possibly setting in motion the first of the Oracles prophecies. Having the demi-god war hero stick around came with a few perks that she didn’t mind but when they have to face a few life and death decisions if they are to complete the next two prophecies she is torn between saving humanity and saving the demi-god who had stolen her heart.

Commander Galen of Delphi should have been dead on the table from the bronze dagger that an unknown assailant had plunged into his side.  If not for the beautiful doctor he would have lost his immortal life to the cause.  Getting closer to the woman, thanks to a series of mysterious paperwork snafus, is a nice diversion for a man married to his military career but when he realizes her secret he must protect her and guide her towards a destiny prophesized by the Oracles.  Staying in camp he brings not only a few perks to those keeping their side alive but while protecting Petra and guiding her to their destiny he finds a connection that he had never imagined in immortal life.

Angie Fox makes me laugh out loud.  Her characters are always a combination of wit, brains, sex-on-a-stick, snark and totally addictive.  Petra is a strong and smart heroine, Galen is a gallant and sexy hero and the rest of the cast merge together to not only steal the show but give them the support they need to find a way through the chaos and crap thrown in their way.    Only Ms. Fox could come up with the premise of a MASH unit with for immortals run by the likes of a Drakkar smelling vampire with possible secrets about his sexuality, a werewolf how is so homesick for his family he adopt various creatures (aka dinosaurs) out of the tar swamp, a security guard sphinx and a Colonel that everyone in camp is trying to pull one over on in hopes of getting some R&R topside.  Petra and Galen’s path to find happiness was fun, frisky, sexy and a must read!  Grab this one now and pre-order the next one STAT!

Graeme is a gruff and battle scarred warrior but he opens his heart to the woman he is forced to wed and soon finds himself captivated by the beauty that his silent but determined wife by his side. I hate to be cliché but I cannot wait for more highland tales from Ms. Banks and am positive that it will prove to be another delicious escape.

I received an ebook copy of this book for my honest review through Net Galley from the publisher Random House Publishing
