About THREE SIMPLE WORDS:

Annie I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It’s why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I’ll never get disappointed by love. So what if my brother’s best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he’s agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.
  Wes The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league. Now I’m her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated. Annie is my muse. When I’m with her, my writer’s block fades away, and the words finally flow. The only problem? She wants the fairy tale—her very own happily ever after—and anyone who’s read my book knows the truth. I just don’t believe they exist.

About A.J. Pine:

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, the books she writes have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes). And a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, superheroes, and a certain high-functioning sociopath detective. You’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago ‘burbs. AJ Pine is the author of the If Only series, the Only You series, and the current Kingston Ale House series.

Review: Shadow Falling by Rebecca Zanetti

Rebecca Zanetti's newest in the Scorpius Syndrome is out! 

What it's about:
Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Wellington was the FBI’s best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her skills as a hunter of men had gone from merely brilliant to full-on uncanny. Her mysterious rescuer wants her to put them to the test. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel’s eyes and devil’s tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn’t trust him.


If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can’t wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won’t even tell Vinnie his real name. But there’s no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk.

And the way his arms wrap around Vinnie tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can’t hide his desire . . .

My Thoughts:
Rebecca Zanetti does it again with another thriller ride in Shadow Falling. It picks right up where the first book ended. Could be read as a stand alone but the first book laid down a lot of the background for this book. There was a lot less time spent on explanation in this book, which facilitated a faster paced story.  As always, this author delivered a hot romance balanced with action and a large cast of secondary characters.
The relationship in this novel between Vinnie and Raze, unfortunately, felt eerily similar to that in the first book in the series. Certainly it’s an interesting dystopian world which leads characters to have a do-it-now-because-we-might-die-tomorrow mindset in a time after humans were decimated by a deadly bacteria. There are a lot of side stories that can be seen are set ups for future books/novellas.

Did I like it? Yeah. Will I be picking up the next one: Yep.

Beach Reads In August Hop


I hope you haven't melted yet. It's been viciously hot here in NC, even at the beach. It's indoor beach reading weather or under-the-umbrella reading. 
I'm doing a little survey on this hop. Who out there reads books self-published by the author? If so, have you found a new author you'd recommend? 

As always, there's a...

REVIEW: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Rhage and Mary return in a new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a series “so popular, I don’t think there’s a reader today who hasn’t at least heard of [it]” (USA Today). 
 
Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…
 
For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him…
 
And that terrifies him—as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world...and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from...  




My thoughts:
J.R. Ward delivers another epic story with the continuation of Rhage and Mary’s relationship.  As always, I love the author's writing style and she is an absolute master of her characters, which by this point is old hat. Although I found Rhage and Mary's storyline predictable and kind of shrugged at their interpersonal dynamics, there were satisfying emotional highs and lows as they enriched their relationship. For me, a couple already together who has no real potential to be ripped apart isn’t as interesting as a couple finding love for the first time.

We also get a bit more of the other BDB storylines. There’s Assail, who I must admit I really never cared much for as a character, but as this story progresses I found myself swaying to the positive with regard to him, and becoming interested in where his story line is headed. Then, there’s Layla and Xcor who’s story has been taking forever and it’s still not to be told. At least the pregnancy is finally over and we can move beyond this.


Overall, liked it. Didn’t think it’s the best in the BDB but still a solid read. Of course, I’ll pick up the next one when it’s out.
