AFTERGLOW by Maria Monroe

aftergow pic

Nina can shoot a gun, start a fire, and kick some serious ass. So when a killer virus and solar storm decimate the country, she’s as prepared as possible to survive. She just needs a motorcycle to navigate the cluttered roads and meet up with her family.

Creed, former Marine, is tattooed and tough. He’s scarred inside and out. Loss is no stranger to him, and he avoids getting close to anyone at all costs.

When Nina tries to steal his motorcycle they have a vicious fight, but necessity and attraction force them into an uneasy alliance. They travel together through the dangerous landscape, where trouble lurks around every corner and they need each other to survive.

But the biggest danger just might be falling in love.

Equally as exciting as it is sexy, Afterglow contains graphic sex and some violence, so please read at your own risk. 18+ recommended.

This is a love story, is very romantic even when is set in an post- apocalyptic world. I enjoy it a lot. I was hooked from the very beginning, the survival and the dialogs captured my attention right away.   The male character is Creed, if the end of earth come you’ll absolutely want this ex-military man in your life, he knows everything and is so strong, and Nina! She is one of the strongest female characters I have ever read; together they are a really explosive couple in every way, which brings you an exciting, and fun plot. The central theme is the romance between them but there is action and the best part for me was the end. I appreciate when I get rewarded for all that angst in post-apocalyptic tragedies. So yes! 5 stars.

wendy Synopsis

From the moment Evan saw her, something inside of him clicked; he knew he had found a friend for life and he’d do anything to protect her. As time went by their friendship grew to something more, something natural and unexpected, fierce and powerful, yet so fragile that merely words could rip them apart.

And it did…

Will he be able to rekindle what he lost or will a slip of the tongue keep them from salvaging what they had?

For Piper, past deceptions and memories continue to pull her down and keep her prisoner, yet there is one thing that still holds her steady and pulls her back from the darkness of her past; simple words that became her beacon. Will she be able to learn to let go or will the echoes of Evan’s voice be the only thing that keeps her safe as he whispers, “Listen to my breaths, keep your eyes on me, watch my mouth and Piper…Breathe With Me.”

TAKE MY BREATH AWAY by Wendy L. Wilson

Alyssa is at the top of her world. She has just graduated, is heading to the college of her choice, in love with her high school sweetheart and has a picture perfect family life. But when that world is turned upside down, she is left feeling stunned and in desperate need of an escape.
With a little persuasion from her sister, Abby, she takes off for a girl’s get away to the lake, hoping for peace, laughter and a chance to clear her head. The last thing she expected was him!
From betrayal to heartache, to relentless love and passion, Take My Breath Away will take you on a journey that will leave you truly gasping for air!tmba

I absolutely love the twist and angst in this book, and the relationship between the two main characters, it’s a really good story and is full of characters that i would like to know more, that is always a plus for me. The hero is so sweet and caring but still he’s tough guy.
The only thing that I didn’t like so much was that the cover is so obvious that I was imagining Nick & Jessica Simpson (blonde and dumb) during the whole thing and well… that’s really hard to ignore when you try to hear the conversation in your head, but i think is a good thing because they are in highschool and that’s the way it, there’s a lot of strong experiences and you can get a glimpse of the future but still get a surprise once in a while. I had a very good time reading this book , you should enjoy it too.

IT’S IN HIS SMILE BY SHELLY ALEXANDER

libro foto

She’s risking it all on a dream career… until his smile convinces her to risk her heart on love. Miranda Cruz isn’t just the best darned waitress in town anymore; she’s Red River’s newest innkeeper. All she has to do is renovate the inn, find the contractor that has disappeared with her life’s savings, and prove that she is the respectable business owner she’s always dreamed of being. Easy, right? Especially for the intelligent Miss Cruz who never depends on anyone, including a man. Until a gorgeous old flame shows up and reignites a fire that has been simmering for seven long years and could send her dreams up in smoke.

Acclaimed environmental architect, Talmadge Oaks, returns home to Red River to settle family business. He plans to get in and get out as quickly as possible because a professional catastrophe is waiting for him back in the Pacific Northwest. When an unforeseen snag keeps him in Red River longer than expected, he finds himself entangled with the floundering renovations of his late grandmother’s old Victorian inn. Handy with a hammer, Talmadge offers to help the inn’s beautiful new owner, but his motives aren’t completely selfless. Will his secret demolish everything they are building? Or will their undeniable passion and love be enough to hold them together?

Excerpt:

 After Talmadge’s colossal gaffe yesterday at Joe’s, the chances of Miranda letting him take over the renovations at the inn were about as good as her contractor giving back her money. The way he saw it, he had two options. One: play the I’m-your- creditor card and take charge of the renovations whether she agreed or not. When it came to any kind of building project, everyone followed his lead. Hell, he’d earned that leadership roll in world of architecture. Miranda’s face glowed red with anger.

 Right. Option one wasn’t working out so well. He shifted to option two: make her think she was still in charge. “Don’t be foolish, Miranda. You need help with this place.” Talmadge was trying real hard to keep his mind and eyes off the taut nipples showing through her thin shirt. The moment he’d turned and saw her standing in the dining room staring at him with sleepy eyes and messy pillow hair…glaring at all of them over the absurdity of superheroes while wearing silly cartoon pajamas… Well, hell. His throat had closed up, and he’d wanted to toss her over his shoulder and take her to back to bed. This time with him in it too.

IT’S IN HIS SMILE by Shelly Alexander

IIHS

Miranda Cruz isn’t just the best darned waitress in town anymore; she’s Red River’s newest innkeeper. But first, she has to find the contractor who’s disappeared with her life savings so she can start renovations. Not so easy for a woman who never depends on anyone, especially a man. And when a gorgeous old flame shows up, the fire between them is reignited and threatens to send her dreams up in smoke.

Acclaimed environmental architect Talmadge Oaks returns home to Red River on family business. He plans to get in and get out quickly because a professional catastrophe is waiting back in Washington. When an unforeseen snag keeps him in Red River longer than expected, he finds himself entangled in the renovations of his late grandmother’s Victorian inn. Handy with a hammer, he offers to help the beautiful new owner, but his motives aren’t completely selfless. Will his secret demolish everything they are building? Or can their undeniable passion keep them together?

Small town with closed minded people, a good romance and lots and lots of fun… this story was really good, I love it, the characters are beautiful, Miranda is a girl that kept her head down, works very hard she works hard to achieve their goals and does not ask favors to anyone, and Talmadge… he is such a strong character, I love him, he is a successful architect going through a very difficult phase in his life, but both of them have a secret in the past, and destiny wants for that to continue in the future. I’ve had so much fun reading this book that when I neared the end I did not want to finish it, but I had to. Now I’ll read the other books in this series.

Six of Hearts by L.H. Cosway

6 heartsBLURB 

Step right up and meet Jay Fields: Illusionist. Mentalist. Trickster.

I think in triangles. You think in straight lines.
I show you a table and make you believe it’s a chair.
Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive.
But most of all, I put on a good show.
The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn’t. Bear with me. It’s all a part of the plan.
Revenge is what I want. I want it for me and I want it for her.
I want it for all six of us.

She doesn’t remember me, but she’s the reason for everything. She’ll be my prize at the end of all this–if I can hold onto my willpower, that is. Maybe I’ll slip up a little, have a taste, just a small one.

So go ahead and pick a card. Come inside and see the show. Look at my hands, look so closely that you can’t see what’s happening while you’re so focused on looking. I’ll be destroying your world from right here in the spotlight.

You’ll never see me coming until it’s too late.

I’ve only got one heart, and after I’ve pulled off my grand deception I’ll hand it right to her.

So, sit back, relax, and let my girl tell you our story. You’re in for one hell of a ride.

This book is the first thing i have read about this author, and I really liked the narrative, is chronological, mysterious and entertaining, but has a strong start, I IMMEDIATELY sympathized with the hero of the story. It is not the typical story, and rather say that skips a little the romance parameter,  but all in all remains a dynamic love story.

It develops in this time and it happens between Ireland and England, and tells the story of Jay an illusionist and Matilda the only daughter of a local lawyer. It is very interesting because it will give you the feeling that this tale is the story of Jay but somehow he “allows” Matilda to tell the facts, I was expecting that suddenly HE will start narrating everything, and that was quite interesting.  Both are defined as very independent people and in the course of the plot their love is tested several times, i feel a great connection but a higher goal and the only way to ease the tension between the two of them is Jay’s very entertaining language and ideas.

This book develops the story completely around the central characters, with an intricate enough plot, and you will not find overdeveloped secondary character, and I think that is great!  It’s very interesting, so I gladly recommend it.

Definitely one of my favorite phrases is:

jayfields

“Something you should know about me, I’m never bored,” he murmurs. “The chance for boredom would be a fine thing, but this fucking brain of mine never stops.”

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Maybe-Someday-by-Colleen-Hoover-Banner

I read this book a year ago (by the first time), but I want to share this with everybody because is just that awesome. Maybe Someday is one of those books that is so original you can’t hold yourself back on your recommendations, you really understand that phrase from Markus Zusak: “Sometimes you read a book so special that you want to carry it around with you for after you’ve  months finished just to stay near it”, this is the case. And the best part is, I almost can do it since, has a list of songs that explain the plot development. Yes, singer and songwriter Pete Griffin with the author created a whole playlist just for this book and is absolutely great!

Blurb

Sydney is living in an idyllic bubble—she’s a dedicated student with a steady job on the side. She lives with her best friend, has a great boyfriend, and the music coming from the balcony opposite hers is fast becoming the soundtrack to her life. But when Sydney finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, the bubble bursts. The mysterious and attractive man behind the music, Ridge, gives Sydney hope that she can move on and they begin to write songs together. But moving on is harder than she expects, Sydney can only hope….

Maybe someday…

Colleen Hoover draws you in to this passionate tale of music, love and betrayal…

The way this story has been told is beautiful and brilliant, once again I said BRAVO Missis Hoover, with the book there’s no gap left, somehow, when I finish I wanted more, and even that is possible, and I was pleased because there is another book called: MAYBE NOT, but it’s about other characters related with this book, without being a sequel. Since the first situation I was in love with the characters, everything changes with a speed that is barely manageable and keeps removing the whole scenario, because the facts are amazingly linked, this is an outstanding book.

This book had the same effect that every other Hoover´s book have had on me, leaving me with total anxiety for the next book, so I could find a story to soothe my brain and wondering how she would be able to overcome this … and she did! Over and over again … But I will tell you about that on future posts.

EL PEQUEÑO LIBRO DE LAS MUSAS por Khaled Talib

epldlm Today I will share with you the wonderful experience that is The Little Book of the Muses, written by Khaled Talib. I read the Spanish edition,
and it’s a very light reading, as it is a composed only of inspiring quotes for writers, but also can be useful for a readers,
or even better for an aspiring writer which is my case. Every author goes through that infamous “writer’s block” at least once, and usually it ends with some trigger to restart the creativity that his work deserves, and that is when this book can help. I had it in my hands last night, and i didn’t stop reading until i was finish with the last sentence, several of them became my favorites, as they are a way to motivate in any intellectual or spiritual task,
and not exclusively on the task of writing; Is incredibly powerful and I think is mandatory for writers. For me, this has the five stars.

FINDING EVER AFTER by Stephanie Hoffman McManus

Recently i posted a freebie alert: “Finding Ever After” by Stephanie Hoffman McManus, and of course i got it on my kindle, to be honest i read it immediately just because i love the cover which is unusual for me, but it really hooked me, i have a FAT tbr list so i decided to start one night and if it wasn’t good, i will leave it at that, and i read it in two days.

 

This is a clean book, which means no sex and s20150924_105630ome people between my contacts seems not quite happy with that fact, but i really enjoy it, i wish more people read this book because it’s a good story, i love it.
From the very beginning give you something to think about, but the book is not about the first situation that you’ll see, it’s a lot more, the characters are well developed and for me it was a good experience to read about a relationship so deep between two friends, and the way they should act in front certain issues. About the main characters, i love them, i always hate the heroin for a while, and this time i started hating her name: Jaxyn, but in the end i loved her, and Kyden is lovely in that “rock star/ pretentious/conflictive” but inside a good guy kind of man, besides in this book i found something really interesting: Kyden’s band, i loved that interaction, they are the kind of character that makes you want another book about them, but you have to  find out by yourself.
I recommend this book and i let you know that is no cliffhanger, you will get your story all the way until the end, it gave me a happy ending.
i read just one very bad review about this book that said that it wasn’t a happy ending and it was boring and other bad things, but i totally believe that the girl who wrote that review was hoping to read some erotica novel and obviously she was disapointed, because i read it and love it.

ABOUT THE PLOT https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21857575-finding-ever-after

FNAIt’s been three years since she left everything she knew behind, but Jaxyn is finally done running, and returning home to Boston face the friends she abandoned without warning and the nightmare that still wakes her in the night.

Back in the childhood home that holds all of her memories from before life showed her that ‘happily ever afters’ don’t come easy, she is unsure of what the future holds. The one thing she definitely wasn’t expecting was Kyden McCabe, the hot, tattooed and pierced musician she meets her first night back.

All she ever wanted as a little girl was to be swept off her feet by a prince, but Ky is nothing like the heroes from the stories her mom used to read to her. He’s arrogant, frustrating and completely wrong for her. He lives his life one night stand at a time and she knows he’s nothing but trouble.

Still haunted by her past and afraid to let anyone see the scars she hides, she fights the attraction she feels for Kyden and wonders if she’ll ever find her storybook ending. Then a monster from her past threatens to rip away her chances before she realizes that maybe she already found it.
