Review: Get in the Car, Jupiter


Synopsis:
WANTED FOR ARSON. CATFISHED AT SANTA'S. ROBBED AT THE FALLS. SHAKESPEARE OR DIE. DRIVER PICKS TUNES.
I'm weird. This isn't news to me or anything. I have lived in a UFO my entire life. This wasn't a coincidence. My parents believe in extraterrestrial life. You know, phone home and all that crap, and they dragged my sister Mercury and I into their mess when they named us what they named us. So it wasn't a surprise, when after getting accepted to UW and expressing my desire to actually attend, they lamented that college is "just another ploy for the government to keep tabs on you, man." In other words, we won't be helping you out, Jupiter. That's fine, though, because my best friend Frankie and I can be pretty clever chicks when we want to be. We found a way up there and it was in the form of a longtime crush, his equally cute cousin, and a kickin' set of wheels. Buckle up, Buttercup, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
 
Review:
Get in the Car, Jupiter by Fisher Amelie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Crazy fun book. It takes a talented author to write something so weird yet awesome!!! I'm pretty sure Ezra wanted Jupiter to get in the car lol. The blurb made absolutely no sense, which made me all the more intrigued.
And Jupiter? Really quirky, pretty brave, full of life, and romantic chickenshit. Did I mention she has a sister named Mercury and her family lives in a UFO?? Yup!
Then there is Ezra. Super popular, had a loving girlfriend, in sports, and a regular high school stereotype. Then there was an incident. Ezra becomes broken, moody, quiet, and hermit. He's prideful, stubborn, confused, and afraid of girls.
Thanks to happenstance, these two are tossed together with Ezra's meddling cousin across the country on a road trip. Did I mention road trips rock? Yup!
I definitely don't want to give anything imperative away, so bottom line: read this damn book. You won't be sorry and will be saying 'get in the car Jupiter' for a long time to come because, yeah it's so strange, it's memorable. Ten glittery stars, but I'm only allowed to give it a realistic five glittery stars. Kudos to Amelie and a new author for me to indulge in.

Review: When the Dead Come A Knockin'









When the Dead Come A Knockin' by B.L. Brunnemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Description:
My name is Alexis Delaney, and I’m your average 17-year-old girl. Except I’m a Necromancer. Which means I can see the dead, talk to them and help them move on. Well, I used to be able to. Someone has sealed the Veil. Now the dead are stuck here. And with the extra energy floating around town, the ghosts are getting stronger.

It’s been two months since I came to Spring Mountain to live with Uncle Rory. And the guys, my five best friends, have done everything they can to help since. Things for once were almost normal, my issues with the dead had become routine. Until they all found girlfriends. Now I’m back to hiding everything again. With ghosts leaving their haunting grounds at will, new people asking questions and trying to build my link to the Veil, I don’t know how the hell I’m going to pull this one off. But it can’t get that bad, right?
 
Review:
So much heart and soul!
Gosh, not even sure where to start. I love Lexi! She's real not some paper character. The author does such a great job at creating depth in her characters. That alone makes the series worth reading. But I love the ghostly part of the plot too. Slow revelations that send small shocks and not just one plot twists. Things unravel at a great pace and you want to keep reading. Not because of a cliffhanger, but just to read more of Lexi's story. And the guys... well, between Zeke, Asher, Ethan, Isaac, and Miles... why should she have to choose? Miles really unfolded and is currently my favorite book boyfriend! Asher comes in a close second. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that you should not miss this young adult paranormal romance series. It's all that and a bag of chips. Ten glittery stars so I guess that has to round down to five glittery stars! Looking forward to the next book! ❤️

Review: Trying To Live With The Dead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Description:
Hi, I’m Alexis Delaney. I’m your average 17-year-old girl. Except I can see the dead. And talk to the dead. And push them away and, well, help them move on. So..okay, I’m not your average 17-year-old girl. For years I’ve been struggling to survive the souls still roaming around. The shitheads always seem to find me. Moving from town to town every few months never helped either. More dead just always find me. But things are changing for me now. I’m moving in with my uncle Rory and cousin Tara. I’m finally going to be able to do normal teenage stuff I’ve been missing out on. Right? 
Well, if this one bitch of a ghost could leave me alone on campus that would be great. Especially since I haven’t told my new friends about my abilities. Can you believe this? Five good looking guys practically adopt me on my first day of school, and I still think they’re a bit nuts for it. Now if I can only just keep my life with the dead from mixing with my normal life, everything would be great. Yeah...I don’t see that happening either. But I’m going to give it a shot. Who knows? It might work. 
Review:
Slow burn RH
I loved the concept of this book! The author did a great job with the characters and plot development. I'm becoming a huge fan of the RH genre and this series is a fantastic one. Slow burn so don't expect it to be romantic straight away. Five glittery stars for a promising series!

Review: Omega

Synopsis:
The second book in the Infinity time travel series is full of action, romance, and an intricately designed roller coaster plot.
One mistake can change everything. Ashlyn Calvert finds that out the hard way when a bad decision leads to the death of her best friend, Noah Anderson.
Only Noah isn’t really gone. Thanks to his parents’ company, the Infinity Division, there is a version of him skipping from one dimension to another, set on revenge for the death of his sister, Kori. When a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with Ash, he’s determined to resist the magnetic pull he’s felt for her time and time again. Because falling for Ash puts his mission in danger.
But there’s more going on in Ash’s alternate universe than either of them knows: a mysterious project called Omega. A conspiracy spanning multiple Earths and revolving around none other than Ash. Its creators would do anything to keep Omega secret…
Anything.
Review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought the first book was brilliant! Stoked for this installment, the author didn't let me down. It was well-written and came from a fresh point of view. The story is told from Noah and Ash's POV. While everyone else is still present and a large part of the book, we get an in-depth view of Noah. I can't spoil it, but this series is a must read and I already need book 3! Five glittery stars!

Review: When Stars Collide

Description:
We were like two stars orbiting each other—dancing around the possibility that one day we might collide. When we finally did, we opened up a black hole, obliterating everything around us. No one would be the same. 
Least of all, us. 
Waking up in Vegas married to the guy of your dreams sounds like a good thing, right? Not when you’re Thea Montgomery and said guy is your brother’s best friend. 
Thea and Xander have always avoided the connection between them because her brother would never approve. Now, they’re married— the strongest bond you can have as a couple—and they’re not even a real couple…unless they want to be. 
Thea wants an annulment immediately, but Xander’s waited too long to see her become his and he won’t let her go easily. 
If she wants a divorce, fine, but he wants the summer to convince her that he’s the one. If at the end of the summer she still wants to end their marriage he’ll sign the papers, but until then… 
All is not fair in love and war. 
Book two in the Light in the Dark series but can be read as a standalone.
Review:
When Stars Collide by Micalea Smeltzer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One word for this book: EPIC! While I love Micalea's books, this one might be my favorite. I adored Thea! Since I didn't read book one in the series, the plot unraveled with lots of surprises. The chemistry between Thea and Xander was explosive. Tension, the yummy kind. Must read! Five glittery stars!

Review: Starstruck Series by Brenda Hiatt

Description:
The middle of nowhere just got a lot more interesting!
Nerdy astronomy geek Marsha, M to her few friends, has never been anybody special. Orphaned as an infant and reluctantly raised by an overly-strict "aunt," she's not even sure who she is. M's dream of someday escaping tiny Jewel, Indiana and making her mark in the world seems impossibly distant until hot new quarterback Rigel inexplicably befriends her. As Rigel turns his back on fawning cheerleaders to spend time with M, strange things start to happen: her acne clears up, her eyesight improves to the point she can ditch her thick glasses, and when they touch, sparks fly--literally! When M digs for a reason, she discovers deep secrets that will change her formerly mundane life forever . . . and expose her to perils she never dreamed of. 
Book 1 of the award-winning Starstruck series, where teen romance blends with science fiction to open a whole new world of action, adventure and discovery.
STARFALL, the 4th and final book of this series, now available!
Review:
Starstruck by Brenda Hiatt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I met this author at a book convention and after spending lunch with her, I knew I had to check out this series. When it came out on audiobook I immediately grabbed it from audible. The plot was so unique! Some science fiction books are very similar, but this series is original and fascinating. When I finally finished, I immediately picked up book 2. Best idea ever. Five glittery stars!

Description:
Marsha Truitt’s life has changed dramatically over the past few months. Instead of a nerdy nobody, she’s the newly discovered princess of a secret civilization. Even better, she’s dating the hottest guy in school, who just happens to be her literal soulmate. But when a new boy arrives at Jewel High, everything M thought she knew about herself and her future is turned on its head. Will the very destiny that lifted her from obscurity now tear her away from Rigel and their happy ever after?
Review:
The series keeps getting better the more I read. This was another stellar installment in a new creative series by a really talented author. The plot continues to thicken and the characters became more complex. I was left with the whole 'wow' factor by the end. And on to book 3! Five glittery stars.

Description:
Being a Princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!
Between keeping high security secrets from everyone (including Rigel) and trying to keep Rigel and Sean from killing each other (with no help from Trina, of course!) M has more than enough on her plate already.
She knew that as newly discovered Princess of a secret Martian colony, she’d have to return there someday—but over spring break?? An emergency requires her immediate presence but not everyone is overjoyed to have their long-lost Princess back. Can she win her people over in time to save the colony from destruction? And what will she have to give up in return?
Review:
Another great installment with M, Rigel, Sean, and Molly. I love love triangles! Sean and Rigel are both great martians lol. The plot was intricate and I loved the world building. I can't wait for book 4! Five glittery stars!

Description:
The electrifying conclusion to the Starstruck series! 
M, no longer a nerdy nobody, has finally been acclaimed Sovereign Emileia, ruler of the Martian colony Nuath. But at what cost? Without her soulmate Rigel, life seems pointless but she’s expected to shake off her heartbreak and assume her responsibilities. Reluctantly, M does what she must until an unexpected discovery restores a glimmer of hope for the future. Now she is determined to do whatever she can to salvage her longed-for happy ending—if it’s not already too late. 
Review:
Really enjoyed this entire series! There were some clever twists and turns in the plot and interesting characters that actually had some morals. If you like ya sci-fi romance, this series is a must read. Five glittery stars.

Review: The Bachelor Auction

Description:
Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.
Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.
Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .
 
Review:
The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Rachel Van Dyken always writes a good romance. This is the first book in a new series: The Bachelors of Arizona. This one centers on Jane and Brock. It was a great take on modern day Cinderella.
Jane's sisters were total cray-cray. I'm sure my patience wouldn't be as good as hers. And poor Brock. He's a wounded, damaged guy with the world on his shoulders. I really adored him.
The supporting characters, Brock's twin brothers, Brant and Bentley, were so fun. They added spunk to the story. I'm sure one of the next books in the series will center around them.
I can't wait to read more in this highly promising series from a master romance author! Five glittery stars!

Mini Review: Cauldron Bubble

Cauldron Bubble Cauldron Bubble by Wendy Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Description:
“You’ve just always been the powerful one. I’m the smart aleck.”  
“We’re the same. I’m night, you’re day. You have to have both to have life.”  
“You can hide in the shadows.”  
“And you can shine like the sun. This prophesy is about both of us.”  

Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids. 
So they can buy more shoes. 
But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks—warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father. 
Oh, and Quin. 
Quin, who's the son of a witch, only tolerating Destiny's presence because she can save his mother. Except along the way, that all changes, and he realizes Destiny is everything he never knew he wanted. The only problem is she thinks if love can be made from a potion, it can't be a real thing. 
If they survive this, he's going to prove her wrong. 

Review:
This made a great start to a new young adult paranormal romance trilogy. I enjoyed getting to know the sisters. Fate and Destiny made great family and their mom too. I'm dying to know more about Fate and her boyfriend Damien. Book 2 is focused on them I believe.
Destiny and Quin were fun characters. I love the whole hate/chemistry they had going on. Oh and the class Chemistry as well. Fun stuff. Prophecies are always interesting and the villain is not surprising but good at being a villain for sure. Overall, Cauldron Bubble gets four glittery stars!

Mini Review: To the Stars

To the Stars To the Stars by Molly McAdams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Description:
In the second book in New York Times  and USA Today  bestselling author Molly McAdams’ Thatch series, Knox Alexander must convince his long-time love Harlow Evans that they’re meant to be together.

He promised to wait for her.
She told him he was wasting his time.
Not waiting for him ended up being the biggest mistake of her life.

When they were younger, Knox Alexander swore to Harlow Evans that he would wait for her to turn eighteen so they could be together. But that was three and a half years away, and Harlow couldn’t ask him to give up all the fun and thrills of going away to college for her. As the years passed, Knox remained a constant in her life—whether she liked it or not—but when her eighteenth birthday came around, Harlow’s heart belonged to someone else.

Every day for the last four years, Harlow has been haunted by that fateful choice. And though he may appear unaffected by what happened in their past, Knox has always tried to fill the void Harlow left. But when he comes stumbling back into her life and refuses to leave, will Harlow finally let him into her heart…?

Review:
Another Molly McAdams classic! I'm loving the Thatch series! Knox and Harlow=AWESOMENESS!
If you've never read anything by this author, you NEED to! She is the Nicholas Sparks of the college and twenties generations. BUT, bring the tissues, because you are in for one hell of the roller coaster ride!
A master at contemporary romance, this book met all of my expectations and more. Don't want to spoil all the twists, give this five star highly recommended book a read!

Mini Review: Accidental Sire
























Accidental Sire by Molly Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In Molly Harper's newest paranormal romantic comedy, Ben, Gigi's old boyfriend, must find a way to save his new love after a freak Ultimate Frisbee accident. But will she want to live after she finds out how Ben had to save her?

In this exciting addition to Molly Harper’s beloved Half-Moon Hollow series, the focus is on Gigi’s ex-boyfriend Ben. When his new girlfriend is killed in a freak Ultimate Frisbee accident, he’s determined to save her, no matter the cost, even if it means bringing her into the darkness of vampire life!
 

Review:
Even though this is the 14th book in the series, I still can't get enough of Half-Moon Hollow! The characters are quirky and well fleshed out. Each story adds to the series and examines a character as they fall in love. This installment centers on Ben!!! He finally gets his own happy ending. We meet Meagan, who opens a whole new can of worms on the vampire council. Suddenly, Jane has her hands full yet again, trying to navigate a messy situation with Ben and Meagan. Accidental Sire is funny, romantic, and heartwarming as new family members join. Five glittery stars for this new series addition!

Review: Haven

Haven Haven by Karen Lynch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Seriously, if you haven't had the pleasure to indulge in books by Karen Lynch, you are missing out big. The series grabbed my attention from the first page. This is the 5th book in the series and focuses on Roland. **Hot, Sexy, Werewolf Roland** Swoon. I'm a sucker for sexy shifters in muscle cars. He's a great guy but has a huge rebellious streak. Then there was Emma. Can't spoil the surprise there, so read book 4! Five glittery stars!!

New PNR by Heather Hildenbrand!!!

Remembrance is now available and I'm so excited to bring you this story!

This is a spin-off of my Dirty Blood series and while it's more fun to come in already knowing a bit about these characters, you do NOT have to read Dirty Blood first. You can just jump in here!

About Remembrance:

heart-lines-remembrance-hhildenbrand_v25

She’s the cure that could save him. If only she could remember how.

Two years ago, 20 year-old Samantha Knight experienced a life-altering trauma. Unfortunately, she can’t remember what it was. Previously outgoing, fun, and carefree—it’s as if someone flipped a switch on Sam’s insides. Now, she’s afraid of everything, socially awkward, and convinced she’s going crazy. As Beyoncé would say, she woke up like this. Sam tries her best to juggle college classes, work, and the nosiest roommate ever, but behind the curtain, Sam’s life is all about keeping a firm grip on her own mind. And life is kicking her ass.

Alex Channing has only one enemy in this world: werewolves. Born and raised to fight in the supernatural military, he has become an expert at hunting and killing rabid werewolves. But when Alex is bitten and infected, he finds himself racing against a ticking clock for his own survival.

Alex’s search for a cure leads him finally to an oracle in a seaside town in California. And she gives him the reading of a lifetime. The key to his cure is a girl who forgets things, cries spontaneously, and might just be insane. And the only way she can save him is to do the one thing Alex knows is impossible: she has to remember.

Book 1 in the highly anticipated Heart Lines series, a spin-off of the bestselling and award-winning Dirty Blood series. Note: you do NOT have to read Dirty Blood first. You can start here!

“If you enjoyed the Dirty Blood series, Remembrance is a must-read!”
