REVIEW of Hit 'N Run by Lori Power

 with 2 comments 
In  
Before I start my actual review, I'd just like to say that this book turned out to be such a riveting and exciting journey. Just basing from the synopsis, you'd know that this isn't your everyday, cavity-inducing romance book. Hit 'N Run is in a league of its own, and I'm going to stop gushing now or I might spoil it for ya'll. Here we go...

Title: Hit 'N Run (Under Suspicion Book 1)
Author: Lori Power
Publication Date: August 11, 2015
Published by: Limitless Publishing LLC.
Source: ARC Given by Author for Honest Review
 
SYNOPSIS:
Determined to build a better life, Lorna has climbed the ladder to a successful public relations career one slippery rung at a time. But while on her way to an important meeting, a former lover crashes back into her life—literally—and she becomes embroiled in a police investigation that threatens everything she’s achieved.

Mitch Morgan doesn’t believe in coincidences.

Mitch has spent five years trying to forget Lorna, only to run into her on his way to an undercover sting operation. Old feelings quickly resurface and passion reignites, but as his investigation unfolds, evidence suggests the woman he’s falling for might have ties to the very criminals he’s after.

When Mitch tugs any thread of his investigation, it seems to lead back to Lorna. Caught between his desire for the strong, curious beauty and the growing suspicions of his superiors, he must choose between trusting his instincts and following regulations.

Lorna finds herself entangled in a web of betrayal.

When she learns the nature of the investigation—and her role as a suspected spy—Lorna goes to dangerous lengths to clear her name and prove to everyone, including herself, she’s worthy of the handsome, tenacious Mitch. With danger around every corner, Lorna is on the run for her life, but refuses to run from the past any longer.

She can find the evidence she needs, but at what cost?

Mitch now knows her secrets and must find her first and convince her she—and their love—are worth fighting for, before it’s too late.

CHARACTER BACKGROUND:
Lorna is a tough, intelligent, and independent woman with such a huge heart. Despite everything she went through when she was a child, she still managed to grow into the kind of person she's always wanted to be. But she's also not content just yet. A part of her is still yearning for something more; the only person who can give her that contentment though was also the one who broke her heart.

Mitch knows heartbreak. For years he tried to deal with the emptiness he felt after the only girl he's ever loved walked away with no reason or goodbye. The only thing he's passionate about now is his career. But that changes when he literally runs into his former flame; passion and hope arises stronger than ever. Hopefully that's enough to withstand everything life will throw their way.

REVIEW:
This is the second book of author Lori Power I've read, and I have to say, I'm truly enjoying her work. If we look at Hit 'N Run from a techical standpoint, it is well-written. The dialogue is easy to understand, the scene and setting well described, and the book's length was just right. Delving into the story, both characters are strong and made for an interesting chemistry. I didn't like the way they reconnected though. For years they've been apart because of one very little misunderstanding. Now they get together again, and in just one night they're already trusting each other again? I mean that's great and all, but I thought there will be more resistance.

Hit 'N Run doesn't just focus on romance though. Underneath all the love and pain lies a threat that can end their relationship before it can even bloom again. There may be some people who will find the action to be confusing and complicated, but I thoroughly enjoy romance books with a little something extra, you know what I mean? That's what Lori gives us. Strong characters with a never-say-die attitude, a solid plot that has a lot of layers, and a somewhat realistic romance that readers would yearn for.

SUMMARY:
I was given this book by the author herself, but that doesn't mean my review is biased for the sake of promotion. I don't do that. I call things how I see them, and right here I see a book that will keep readers on edge, but will leave them wanting more. I give it a solid 4 stars, and I can't wait for the second part in the series.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Turning passion into words in print is a dream come true for Lori Power.

From Radio host (best job ever!), DJ, news reporter to newspaper journalist, like many author’s, Lori has been involved in the writing process most of her life.

In writing, Lori has discovered a truism: everyone has a great story to tell. All you need to do is listen. Over the years, with all the people Lori has meet previously and daily, both professionally and personally, with an ear to the ground, readers can often find these ‘character’s’ fictionalized.

Lori’s first novel “Storms of Passion” was published by Wild Rose Press under their Champagne line, in 2014.

Collaboration is important to improving one’s craft and as such, Lori is an active member of the TransCanada Romance Writers, Romance Writers of America, The Alberta Romance Writers Association and belongs to both a Critiquing group and a Beta Reading weekly group.

Lori looks forward to continuing to find the good story; hashing out a scene, having fun with a character and writing the story she would love to read.

REVIEW of Three Days to Forever by Lauren Carr -- Blog Tour

 with 2 comments 
In , ,  

I like watching TV shows of the crime-suspense genre, but I was never a fan of it in print. So why did I give Three Days to Forever a shot? It's simple really; I just got curious is all. There's something about the book's blurb that made me wonder how good it is. I also noticed that this is the 9th installment in a series. It means this is a damn good saga for it to have this many parts. I wanted to see for myself so here I am right now sharing my review with all of you out there.

REVIEW of Midnight Run by Charity Hillis -- Blog Tour

 with No comments 
In , ,  

MidnightRunTour
 
When I read the blurb of Midnight Run, I instantly got curious. How can someone not realize that the two women he's falling in love with is one and the same? I didn't give anything away by saying this because it's kind of easy to deduce from the synopsis, right? Anyway, it goes without saying that I had to check it out for myself. And so here's my review. 

Title: Midnight Run (Once Upon a Desire #1)
Author: Charity Hillis
Publication Date: May 15, 2015
Genre: Chick Lit, Contemporary, Romance, Women's Fiction
Source: ARC Given by Tour Organizer
 
SYNOPSIS:
Once Upon a Time never felt like this…
Running, coffee, and New York City: Nora feels like she’s got it all. But when this barista meets Kingston, a handsome Texan, she realizes the one thing she’s been missing is love.
Kingston doesn’t want to admit that he’s looking for a fairy tale, and he sure didn't think he’d fall for two women. But what he doesn’t know about his running buddy and the pretty barista might surprise him.
MIDNIGHT RUN is a contemporary romance inspired by Cinderella, and it's the first book in the Once Upon a Desire series.
Once Upon a Desire: contemporary fairy tales with a pinch of spice.

Amazon: http://amzn.to/1JmP8iU

CHARACTER BACKGROUND:

Nora is a shy and insecure woman who is terrified of confrontation. She's pretty much content with her life; she's sharing an apartment with her gay best friend, has a supportive and loving family back home, and a promotion in the coffee shop she works for with her name on it. But life is full of surprises; some are bad and some are good. Hopefully she can deal with everything that comes her way.

Kingston is a true blue Texan; from the accent to his gentlemanly manners. He has always believed in happily-ever-afters so when he falls for two women, he doesn't know how to handle it. Especially since his sister's marriage is tumbling down. Will he be able to hold on to his beliefs or will pain and cynicism stop him from finding his own fairy tale ending?


REVIEW:
I didn't have any expectations when I started reading Midnight Run. But I wouldn't have thought that it will end up being this short. In more or less a hundred pages, the author was able to depict a modern day fairy tale-like love story. In this age, the term we can use is "insta-love". That is what Nora and Kingston's meeting was like. I'm honestly not a fan of stories like this because I don't believe in love-at-first-sight. Lust-at-first-sight, sure but I believe that real love can't possibly be determined in a few short conversations. 

In spite of all my reservations though I still ended up liking the book as a whole. The story tackles a whole lot of things; romantic relationships, family, career, and of course, running. I would love to kill Lauren (Nora's co-worker) in the most painful way possible but it's still a good book. 

I'm not sure if this is just the first installment in a series, but I hope it is. There were so many things left hanging; how will Kingston's career turn out, did Nora finally overcome her fear of Lauren, how's her best friend dealing with his ex, and so much more. I do hope a part 2 is released soon; I've never been one for delayed gratification.


SUMMARY:
Midnight Run receives 3.5 stars from me. It's a romance-filled book with realistic characters in a complicated situation. It's a quick read with a good ending. Come check this out guys. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Charity Hillis has always had a thing for fairy tales. She is the author of the ONCE UPON A DESIRE series, including MIDNIGHT RUN (out now), CUTTING LOOSE (coming fall 2015), and PRINCESS SUITE (coming winter 2015). She believes in HEA like she believes in chocolate.

My love for author J.J. McAvoy's books is no secret. She creates characters that I always end up loving, writes plots that are excellent, and throws in twists that has me reeling like crazy! So obviously I had to jump on the chance of reading and reviewing her latest release, Sugar Baby Beautiful. Before I start my review, let me just tell you...this has been one hell of a ride.

REVIEW of Hello, My Love by E. Journey -- Blog Tour

Hello, My Love is the first instalment in the Between Two Worlds series from author E. Journey. From reading the synopsis alone, I had a feeling that this would be a sophisticated story that holds numerous smart conversations. At the same time I expected it to be boring and stiff also basing it on the blurb. But were my assumptions correct? Find out in a bit.

My heart is hurting right now. I feel like a jackhammer is pounding my heart after a bulldozer ran it over. I just wrapped-up Never Always Sometimes, and I'm feeling very violent towards Adi Alsaid. I'm not even going to try to be mysterious or whatever -- I absolutely loved this book. But it doesn't change the fact that I am in pain right now. Adi... come on, man. Is that really it? I know you're trying to stick to the non-cliche theme, but I am suffering right now. *sigh* Since this isn't about me let me proceed to my review.

REVIEW of Code of Honor by Missy Johnson -- Blog Tour

Ever since I've read author J.J. McAvoy's Ruthless trilogy, I had this interest in books involving the mafia or mob. "It's not a very good fascination," I can imagine some of you saying. But I can't really shake it off. When the opportunity to read Code of Honor arose, I jumped on it like a PMS-ing woman would chocolate cake. So what's the verdict?

REVIEW of Blurred Lines by Lauren Layne -- Blog Tour

 with No comments 
In , ,  

I have always been a fan of love stories that rooted from friendship rather than those inta-lust/love things. There's just a sense of realism that I don't get from the latter, you know? So when the opportunity to read Blurred Lines presented itself, I immediately grabbed it. 

Judging by the synopsis alone, there doesn't seem to be anything special about this book. However, once you delve into the pages, you would understand why I liked this... a lot.

Guest Blog by Cayt Landis of Vicarious Caytastrophe -- "Bookworm, Blogger, and Graphic Designer"

 with 3 comments 
In  

 
Wow! We're already on our 7th guest blogger. How time flies. So we've all met some really interesting people in the last few weeks and now we'll be adding another person on that list. She has a really cool and elegant website that I'd like for ya'll to check out. She also has her own domain so extra points for her. But the thing I liked most is her blog's name. Let me introduce our guest for today...
 
1. What's your name, nickname, and blog's name?
My name is Cayt. My given name is spelled Kate, like a normal person, but I changed my spelling in early high school or middle school. I was obsessed with The Dragonriders of Pern books by Anne McCaffrey. Cayt is the Pernese spelling of my name!
My blog is called Vicarious Caytastrophe. I wanted something that worked with my name and the domain I already owned. Vicarious Caytastrophe just sounded neat. You can live vicariously through my chaotic reading schedule.
 
2. What do you do? (Working, student, serial killer. Please be as specific as possible. ^_^)
 
My actual job is a graphic designer for a custom closet company. I make the 3D pictures that our customers use to decide what they want in their closets. And no, my own closets aren't amazing. Haha!
 
3. What got you into blogging and how long have you been doing it?
 
I've been blogging since around February, so about half a year. I wanted to start blogging because I read a ton of books. I never reviewed them until I won some books on Goodreads though. I reviewed those books and people seemed to enjoy my reviews. So I thought it would be fun to review on a larger scale and share my opinion. I'm pretty opinionated!
 
4. How do you balance your personal/professional life, reading, and  blogging?
 
This is hard to do and lately I've been slacking a bit. I work 10 hour days so I don't have much time during the week to do anything. I try to keep up my writing as much as I can in my days off and schedule them ahead of time. I need to make more time though! Hopefully I'll have more free time come fall.
 
5. Is there anything you'd like to add or say?
 
Thanks for inviting me to be a guest blogger! My favorite thing about blogging is meeting new people and finding new blogs. :)

REVIEW of XO, Blake by Avery Aster

 with No comments 
In ,  

This is not my first Avery Aster book but I can't exactly say that I have been following her work as well. So I guess it would explain why I jumped into XO, Blake without knowing that this is just a short spin-off of another series. I don't really like starting in the middle of a story, with the setting already well-established, if you know what I mean. 

There were a couple of times I almost put my reader down for this reason but there was something--or someone--stopping me from doing so. Want to know what...or who it is?

REVIEW of Madison's Song by Christine Amsden -- Blog Tour

Confession time: This was a last minute read for me. A very last minute read. Like, I didn't know I already have the copy until Sage Adderley sent me a friendly reminder. But still all's well that ends well. I read Madison's Song last night and closed it 3 hours later with a somewhat satisfied sigh. Why is there a "somewhat" in that sentence, you ask? Let me explain.

So Elise died and came back to life as a black-haired, smooth-skinned, physically-perfect supernatural creature. Yes, she's now a demon. But she's no ordinary demon because she's now known as "Father". How did that came to be? Well that happened around the same time she humped the real father demon and they exchanged blood. Awesome, eh?

REVIEW of Laid Out by Sidney Halston -- Blog Tour

 with No comments 
In , ,  

Laid Out's blurb is what I would call typical. I've read a lot of books that tackle the same plot, with the same storyline, so I didn't have high expectations for this. I was taken aback though when I got to 1/4 of the book; things changed, and then I realized that this won't be as predictable as I initially thought it would be.

Guest Blog by Danielle Smith of Reading, Writing, and What Not -- "Bookworm, Blogger, and Social Worker"

 with No comments 
In  

Our 6th guest blogger for our Bookworm, Blogger, and Something Else series is someone I've came into contact only recently. At first, I was quite hesitant to ask her to do a guest blog because I thought she was reserved, but I took the leap anyway, and here she is now! 
P.S. She's not all that quiet, I think. *grins*
 
1. What's your name, nickname, and blog's name?
 
Name: Danielle Smith
Nickname: “Pixie” is my login everywhere, and many use it
2. What do you do? (Working, student, serial killer. Please be as specific as possible. ^_^)
 
I am a social worker in Texas.  I work with foster kids and help parents do what they need to get their kids back into their care.  I am also a full time mom and wife.
 
3. What got you into blogging and how long have you been doing it?
 
I have always wanted to blog and tried many different ways to get into the blogging world but I couldn't find the right motivation.  I have had many blogs over the years.  I think if I could have stuck with it, I would have had a blog for 8 years now.  Sadly I lost my mojo for a while.  I got back into blogging this year when I started book reviews.  This really seems to be what I was waiting on.
 
4. How do you balance your personal/professional life, reading, and  blogging?
 
During the week I don't usually blog.  I read on my Kindle once my son has gone to bed and my husband is playing a game on his computer.  I also read when I am relaxing in a hot tub of water when I need it during the week.  My son and husband always come first, so there will be weekends where I will not blog a review.  My husband supports me, so the weekends when my son is at his father's house are the weekends we have set aside as “Danielle's blog and work days”. I should also point out that I also take time to play video games, it's a great stress relief.
 
5. Is there anything you'd like to add or say?
 
I feel like I got very lucky with how supportive and friendly the book blogging community is.  I am glad to have met everyone I have so far!

Author: Rhonda L. James
Genre: Romance
Age Category: New ADULT
Release Date: May 31, 2015
Source: Copy Given by Tour Organizer
 
SYNOPSIS:
From the author of Across the Miles, comes the sequel to the love story of Sebastian and Brooke. Go back to the days after Brooke left for London, and find out what happened to place Sebastian in that hotel room with nothing but memories and a bottle of whiskey.

What happens to America's favorite rock star when his picture perfect life falls apart? Again…

Sebastian and Brooke had a fairy tale romance, until one choice tore them apart. Brooke's decision to move away and run Max Wolf's struggling restaurant, Lardon's, stands in the way of Sebastian's plan to propose on the night of his birthday. They have a fight and he takes off, leaving her to board a plane to London without saying goodbye. While there, she meets Reid, a handsome chef who just happens to live in the same building she now calls home. Their newfound friendship, and Reid's attraction to her, only adds to the strain on her already fragile relationship with Sebastian.

Then, one out of control night changes everything as they know it, and their relationship is put to the test. Now, do they fight for what they love? Or choose to walk away? Will facing your demons destroy you? Or make you stronger? Surely, a love that was meant to be can face any obstacle.

A force too strong to ignore. A need so deep it aches. Undying love.

A heart may be broken, but it keeps on beating. And never gives up.

ARA'S NOTE:
For those of you who drops by The Booksnake Etc from time-to-time, you'd notice (or not) that this is my first time putting my note at the lower half of my review. Is there a special reason I'm mentioning this? Not really. I just thought I'd point it out. All that non-sense aside, I'm really excited to share with you my review of Rhonda L. James' Across the Miles and Miles Apart. It's a 2-part series--as far as I know--and they have to be read in the order in which you see here. I'll be reviewing both books as though they are one because it is basically just one story separated to make two books. Enough of the rambling, here's what I thought of the series. 
REVIEW:
Both books are well-written. From the first page of Across the Miles, I already knew that I would enjoy the adventure Rhonda James will be taking me on. The characters are easy to fall in love with because they aren't one-dimensional; they all have more layers than an onion. I am more than willing to peel off each layer to fully understand and connect with these people. Brooke and Sebastian had the "insta-love" most books now have. Whether I liked this or not is something I'm still debating with myself. I guess after reading about a couple dozen with the same instant attraction, the appeal tends to wear-off. You just start craving for something that's a bit more realistic and long-drawn. Not that Brooke and Sebastian's love story went too fast because it's sort of the opposite. I don't know, maybe I'm just a cynic when it comes to things like that. 

Moving on, I liked the pace of both books. A lot of things happened, a lot of places shown, and a lot of food introduced. Food *sigh* I am a foodie so reading about scrumptious meals made me like this series all the more. Spoiler: We have a happy ending here; I'm not going to keep that from you guys. But prepare yourselves for a load of trials and heartaches. 

SUMMARY:
Across the Miles and Miles Apart made it to my Fave list because it's really romantic; the lines are swoon-worthy, pain felt by characters are real, and the things they've overcomed are inspiring. Both installments I give 5 stars.

REVIEW of Storms of Passion by Lori Power

 with No comments 
In  

Romance has always been my genre of choice. I have read hundreds of books in this category, so I always try to look for something new and unique. A romance book with a story I would never forget or confuse for anything else. When I was given the opportunity to read Storms of Passion, I immediately jumped on it! Why would I say "No" to a thing that promises to give me what I yearn for? Here's my review that I'd like to share with you all. 

Title: Storms of Passion
Author: Lori Power
Publication Date: November 23, 2013 
Published by: The Wild Rose Press, Inc
Source: Copy Given by Author and Publisher
 
SYNOPSIS:
Vivian Margaret is tired of reading about other people's romances. She craves adventure. After a fortuneteller shines a mirror on her innermost longings, Vivian enrolls in a sailing course on the other side of the country.
 
Reservist rescue swimmer and tech specialist, Tucker MacLean has been there and done that, and is not going to fall for a woman any time soon. That is until he quite literally collides with Vivian.

Out of her element, she rediscovers her strength of character and a stubborn ambition to cling to hope when all seems lost.

Not realizing the depth of his intense emotional attachment until a surprise storm threatens Vivian's life, Tuck must find her and bring her back from the heart of the storm. Passion drives him, love sustains him.

REVIEW:
If I were to judge a book based on its synopsis, Storms of Passion will be getting such high praises from me. But the problem I have with books I get excited for is that they usually fall short of my expectations. Does that mean this one did too? Let me think for a moment... Nope! It didn't. Lori Power created such a wonderful story with characters that are interesting on their own but amazing with each other. I got exactly what I was promised; romance, a bit of humor, drama, suspense, and a whole lot more. There were a few cheesy moments of course, but I think that's the norm nowadays. Besides, no matter how much we say we hate cliches, when your man treats you like his queen, you'll still swoon. 

Going back to the book; I adored Vivian. She's such a strong-willed woman who chooses to fight and never give up. She wants to discover her true self, as well as start living her life--for real. May I just say,that I kind of envy her. She gets to read books for a living! That's awesome! Though there are some things in her life that aren't [awesome]. *Awkward silence* Anyway, I loved Lori's approach in sharing with us glimpses of what Vivian was reading. Page one gave me a shock actually. I won't be giving too much away but I will say this: this book feels very real. It's not too far fetched... well, almost... and every scenario can happen to just about anyone. It's quite realistic.


SUMMARY:
This is such a well-written book, penned by a very inspired and talented author. I give it 5 stars and recommend it to everyone out there. I can't wait to read more of Lori's works. I'll definitely be supporting her.
