My Review

Siobhan Davis’ True Calling is her debut dystopian Sci Fi YA novel filled with romance, suspense ladened plot that keeps you turning the page.
I really liked “True Calling” much more than I expected since it took me awhile to get into it, However, because of the talented author, I found myself immersed in Ari’s world. The main character, Ari is a teeneaged military cadet who lives on a terraformed planet created as a haven for the people of the dying earth due to natural disasters and bioterrorism. The planet is named Novo and is insanely uptight..
Novo is filled with super healthy, biologically perfect people living in an extremely controlled society. From food to free time, everything is portioned out precisely.
Now imagine having to come of age in a place like that?? It would make a rebel of even the nicest person at some time, and Ari is no different. Even romance betweeen teenagers are controlled and even televised.

Great start to a very promising career in scifi!

Here’s what reviewers had to say about True Calling:

“The story line was awesome, it kept me into it, and was hard to put down.” Kim Gailey. Superbookgirl13

Diverse Book Tours Presents my review of Saruuh Kelsey’s The Beast of Callaire

Presented by Diverse Book Tours

The Beast of Callaire: Yasmin is a descendant of the Manticore. A creature of Persian mythology. A Legendary.

But she doesn’t want to be. Unlike the Legendaries in The Red, Yasmin wants nothing more than an ordinary life. She tries to fool herself into believing that she doesn’t change into a beast every full moon and savagely kill innocent people.

But when Yasmin starts hearing a voice in her head and is drawn into dreams that aren’t her own, she is led to Fray—a girl who once saved Yasmin from hunters, who has shadowy memories that hint at her having

Legendary magic—and Yasmin is catapulted into a life of Majick and malevolence.

Despite the danger around her and Fray, Yasmin might finally have a chance at being a normal girl with a normal girlfriend. But with Legendaries being killed, a war between the Gods  brewing, and the beast  inside Yasmin becoming stronger each moon, her mundane life is little more than a  dream.

My Review

The Beast of Callaire is a LGBT YA novel about a Persian mythlogical were-manticore girl named Yasmin who is such a huge loner because she wants to be seperate from the world that she belongs that’s filled with magic and mythology.
It took me awhile to connect to Yasmin because I didn’t really understand her motives for being the way she was, I thought she was a bit of an ingrate to be honest but that’s neither here nor there. I blame that on the fact that I’m now a cranky adult who now has the gift of hindsight.
However I can’t fault the author’s depth of imagination or her skillful storyline. I mean a manticore??? there’s not enough books about other creatures outside of the usual suspects, so I applaud the author for that. There’s so much more mythology out there to be explored and I think Saruuh Kelsey will be at the forefront of the writers exploring that.
This book is a definite must read especially for someone looking for something DIFFERENT and diverse in the YA genre. I loved the slowburning romance between Yasmin and Fray. It was a refreshing change of pace especially as it was foretold that they would be an intense, deep love but it wasn’t rushed or forced. In the end I fell for those two love ladies as they were falling in love with each other.

Check out an Excerpt from The Beast of Callaire!

Symbols have been smeared in red on the wall over my bed—the same language as the words I saw lit

up on the building across the alley. The words the original Phoenix confirmed to be the language of

Gods.

Without really thinking about it, I start running through my apartment looking for anything else out of

place, avoiding what’s in front of me. I feel my breathing quicken and I know I need to calm down but

right now calm is elusive.

“It’s a warning,” Guy says, his voice edged in ice.

“How do you know?” I plead with my legs to hold me up as I dizzily return to my room. The liquid used

to write the symbols is definitely blood—my Crea nose can smell the tang from here. Thankfully, it’s not

human.

“Mavers has been teaching me to read Numina,” Guy tells me. “Do you want to know what it says?”

“No.”

“It says to stay away from the Halfling or more Legendaries will die.”

Air rushes from my lungs all at once. “Fray.”

I disobey the warning without a second thought, rushing outside and tearing across the road, uncaring

of traffic. When I reach the wood’s edge, I rip off my talisman and reach out for Fray. Guy catches up

just as I’m screaming for her.

The muscles in my thighs strain with how hard I’m pushing myself. I don’t want to admit the truth to

myself—that something is irreversibly wrong. I hear no static from Fray’s mind and there isn’t a single

scared thought from her.

I unleash the monster I fight so hard to repress and scream a hostile growl into the woods. Guy flinches

beside me.

Talons unfurl from my fingers. My vision sharpens all at once and I know I look beastly, that my eyes are

the most golden they’ve ever been.

None of that matters.

My link to Fray is gone.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 8, 2015

 

 

Just like the end of the fairy-tale tattooed on my arm, the evil queen is no more. You’d think that would mean Abigail and I could get our happy ever after, and our story would fade to black. But it’s not that easy. Now, there are people who know our secret, and are willing to use it against us. There’s a storm coming our way.

We’ve endured so much, and survived it with our relationship kept secret. But is our devotion strong enough to brave the reality of the world, an angry ex-husband, and a father who blames me for his undoing? Can we survive?

Find out what fate has in store for Sebastian and Abigail in this gripping conclusion of the Stepsister Devotion serial by debut author, Eve Cates.

 

 

 

 

Part One

 

Part Two

Part Three

 

Eve Cates is a twenty-something author of contemporary erotic romance. She loves all things naughty, demanding men and difficult situations (pass the popcorn please). Her first series, StepSister Devotion, will be told in four parts, releasing via Kindle Unlimited.

Eve has loved writing ever since she picked up her first crayon and penned a note to her imaginary friend ‘Pok’. Accused of being a ‘dreamer’ as she grew, she’s taken that notion and turned her daydreams into stories to delight and satisfy her readers.

When she isn’t writing, you’ll find her at home with her husband, four children, and two dogs.

Diverse Book Tours Presents Caroline Bell Foster’s Call Me Lucky- An Excerpt

Welcome to the “Call Me Lucky” Mini-Tour featuring author Caroline Bell Foster!

Presented by Diverse Book Tours

Here’s the Blurb and Excerpt from the book:

What happens with the night team…

Felicity ‘Fliss’ Pecora didn’t like people. Her background meant she didn’t trust easily and the night shift suited her perfectly. Forced to go on a team night out she bumps into the one person who knew her at her worst.

Teddy couldn’t believe the foul mouthed girl he once knew had changed so little, but still he felt an attraction towards her. He helped her overcome her insecurities and health scare and they were happy and in love until the night their pasts collided.

To love her, was to let her go. But could he?

Excerpt from “Call Me Lucky”

She ran past the strapping black bouncer at the entrance, around the side of the building and past a bunch of wheelie bins before stopping and throwing up against the building. Oh God it was horrible. They didn’t like her. Her body crumpled against the wall and she pressed her forehead into it, feeling the rough brick bite into her skin. Any pain was better than the feeling of her dreams shattering.

“Fliss!” It was Mackenzie. She didn’t want to talk to him. Not like this, not when she had failed. It was his fault anyway. She would never have put herself through this if he hadn’t dared her.

“Fliss!”

“I’m here,” She called out quickly, wiping away the water from her eyes. They were not tears she told herself.

“Why did you run you nit?” He admonished softly, pulling her into his arms and hugging her tight. “They loved you.”

“Yeah right,” she said pulling free and sniffing loudly. “Loved me enough they couldn’t bring themselves to even clap Mac.”

“They didn’t get a—” he didn’t finish what he was about to say as a man in dark jeans, white shirt and dark leather jacket walked towards them.

“If I didn’t see it with my own eyes I’d have never believed chavvy Felicity Pecora could render my customers speechless.”

Fliss gaped into the darkness knowing that voice, but refusing to believe it.

“What? Got nothing to say? This is a first,” he chuckled and, stepping closer, held out his hand to Mackenzie. “Theodore Nicholson. But everyone calls me Teddy,” he explained. “Felicity and I grew up together.”

Mackenzie shook his hand. “Mackenzie. Nice to meet you. Are you coming back in Fliss? They want more.”

Fliss shook her head in horror. There was no way she was going back inside. She’d done what she said she would do, gave it a go and took a bite of her apple. They didn’t like her and she wasn’t about to make the same mistake again.

“Can you give us a minute Mackenzie?” Teddy asked.

“Yeah, course mate.” Mackenzie stepped away. “You were amazing Fliss. See ya in a bit.”

Could this night get any worse. Teddy Nicholson was stood right in front of her, once again, at the lowest point of her life. World open up and suck me right in, she begged silently.

“Well?”

He’d used that same word with that same menacing tone that night all those years ago, she remembered with shame.

“Well what?” She questioned defensively, stalling.

“Well what are you doing in my pub for one thing?” Teddy asked, leaning against the wall and fishing into his jacket pocket for the one cigarette he allowed himself each week. It wasn’t there.

She turned to look at him but he was in profile and she could barely see him in the darkness. “I’m in London,” she mumbled.

“I noticed.”

She was fifteen again. Spotty, ugly and fat. Reduced to the bumbling teenager who’d been crying in the jitty at the back of the house as he’d shouted at her mother for having sex with his brother Marty. He’d threatened to call the police and social services on them. He’d been so angry and had left through the back gate, finding her huddled against the fence.

He’d reduced her to even more tears by the time he’d finished with her and when she’d just about crumbled at his feet, he’d taken a huge breath, shoved his hands through his hair and then given her a long pep talk that basically said, if he could get out then so could she.

“We won a trip,” she admitted quietly. “From work.”

He moved then, turning to stand in front of her, his head cocked to one side as he looked her over. He looked at her feet in sparkly ballet shoes, her legs in dark skinny jeans and a sparkly silvery top with tiny straps over her shoulders. Her hair was in a tight bun, set high on top of her head. It looked like she had a silky doughnut on her head.

“You look really nice Felicity.”

“What?” She snapped defensively, folding her arms over her chest. “You thought I’d still be wearing my charity labels Teddy?”

He frowned down at her. He’d always felt guilty for laying into her the way he had done that night behind her house. She couldn’t help the way her mother was or the environment she lived in. He’d just been so mad that her mother had got money out of his baby brother for sex. Stealing his innocence.

“Maybe,” Teddy shrugged. “Why deny it?”

Her eyes flashed and she poked him in the chest. “I’m not a kid any more Teddy.” She lifted her chin and stared straight at him.

“Really?” He sounded sceptical. “You’ve changed?” He was remembering the scrawny kid with the foul mouth.

She took a shuddering breath knowing he didn’t really believe her. Not that she cared what he thought.

“Yes really,” she snapped. “Look, can you go and get my friends please. I’m not going back in there,” she admitted tightly.

“You were sensational Felicity.” He smiled down at her. “My crowd loved you.”

“Yeah right,” she scoffed. “They loved me so much my ears are still ringing from all the appreciation they showed!” She finished on a wobble. She was not going to get emotional, especially in front of him! “And why do you keep saying your crowd?”

“I own the place,” he admitted. “And they were struck dumb by how good you sounded and not expecting it. Jesus Christ Fliss! Where does that voice come from? It’s amazing.”

“Stop lying Teddy.”

“I’m not lying. They want more!” He grabbed her hand. “Come on let’s go.”

“Are you fucking crazy?” She yanked violently out of his grasp and stepped away from him. It was beginning to drizzle. It had drizzled that infamous night too.

He grinned at her. “Ah, now, here is the Felicity I know,” he laughed. “I could always depend on your, dare I say, vocabulary to lower the tone of any conversation.”

“You can say what the fu-hell you like.” Why was she letting herself down like this, she thought, fighting the tears. “Please Teddy, go and get my friends. I’m getting wet.”

“Only if you promise to come back tomorrow night and do a whole set. When are you going back up to Notts?”

“We’ve got another night,” she said without thinking. “And I’m never going on stage again.”

“Come back tomorrow and have dinner with me then.”

“No. Why? So you can laugh at me. No thanks,” she questioned and answered all at once.

He chuckled deep in his throat. “I want to know what’s been going on with you, I’m curious that’s all.”

“You can take you’re curiosity and sh—”

“How old are you?” He cut in and watched with amusement as a shade of red touched her cheeks. She’d always been fiery. She’d always fascinated him.

Fliss felt like an idiot. She didn’t know why she was behaving like this in front of him.

“Twenty.”

“Hmm. Come, I’ll buy you a drink before you go.” He took her hand.

“I don’t drink.” She grumbled.

He stopped walking and turned to look at her in that intent way of his, with his head to one side. He nodded silently and then did what he’d done all those years ago. With one hand he cupped her face and used his thumb to stroke her cheek. A tender moment from him. He shook his head as though getting rid of unwanted thoughts and dragged her inside.

Diverse Book tours presents my review of Kim Golden’s Maybe Baby/ Maybe Tonight

maybebanner

Welcome to the “Maybe Baby and Maybe Tonight” Mini-Tour featuring

author Kim Golden!

Presented by Diverse Book Tours

Maybe Baby

Imaybebabycovermagine finding out you could never have a baby with the man you love…

Expat American Laney Halliwell finds out the hard way

when Niklas tells her he had a vasectomy before they met and isn’t interested in reversing it. Why

should he? They’ve got his kids from his first marriage and an enviable life in Stockholm.

What if you fell in love in the most unexpected way…?

But Laney wants more. So when a friend suggests she look into an alternative sperm bank in

Copenhagen to find a potential father for her baby, things don’t go exactly as planned. Especially when

Laney meets Mads and finds herself falling in love

My Review of Maybe Baby

Messy. Absolutely messy. Maybe Baby is very well written! and once I got started I didn’t want to put it down. I felt like I was right in Stockholm and Copenhagen along with the characters. The author’s vivid descriptions were wonderful and the writing style flowed and flowered beautifully. 

I found the main character Laney to be complicated. I didn’t relate to her much because I found her bratty and self absorbed. I didn’t like Niklas either because he sounded arrogant just like his daughter Siri so I understood the reason why their relationship was skating on thin ice. However, Laney’s plans and reasoning for wanting a baby out of the blue by any means necessary was so self involved that I would have reacted exactly like Niklas. She showed no care about children before literally demanding one of her own. and even after Niklas gave her a perfectly  valid reason as to why he didn’t want to be a father again, she just kept on with her plans STRAIGHT AWAY. I mean she could have given him some time to come around before planning on doing a complete deal breaker. With or without Mads, she was ending her own relationship because she wanted what she wanted. 

I liked Mads just fine but their love affair was too rushed for me to truly believe in it. Although I couldn’t fault the very well written feelings of WANT that Laney had for him. I didn’t approve of her lack of self control but it was still really believable when I was reading it.

 Then again that’s the mark of a great writer, that they could make you feel REAL feelings about an imaginary character, good or bad. and I learned more than I ever wanted about sperm donation, false or otherwise. 

I feel like perhaps my feelings about adultery has overshadowed my enjoyment of the book but it was still a great read. 

Maybe Tonight:

Mads Rasmussen has had enough: of being a sperm donor, of feeling disconnected, of being alone.

maybetonightcover

Then someone walks into his life in a most unexpected way…

Maybe Tonight gives a glimpse of Mads’s life just before and just after he meets Laney in Maybe Baby.

Maybe Tonight is a novella.

My Review of Maybe Tonight

I truly enjoyed Maybe Tonight. I felt more sympathy for Laney because of Maybe Tonight. and I felt like I got to know Mads a bit more since this was from his point of view. It definitely gave a different spin on Maybe Baby. It wasn’t as clear cut for me after reading Mads’ perspective. He was such a sympathetic person that I could see how things could get muddled for him. He was just trying to get by and help people out but he started to feel the burnout that many people feel regardless of their jobs, orthodox or unorthodox as was his case as a sperm donor. and then coincidentally he fell in love and that made the transition that much easier for him.

Another thing  that impressed was that I didn’t feel like I was reading thoughts of an american man but of someone European and I think that’s actually a uncommon talent that the author possesses. I also love the cover!! Great read!

Check out an Excerpt from Maybe Baby!

“Copenhagen Cryo.”

“What?” Long lines of sweat trailed down my face and neck.

“The clinic Uma uses for super sperm.” Eddy was still jogging in place, waiting for me to catch my breath.

“I wish you wouldn’t call it that.” I gasped and used my already damp sleeve to wipe my face.

Eddy bumped my sweaty shoulder with hers and grinned. “You have to admit—it must be pretty good

sperm if she’s gone back so many times.”

“Yeah, well you’ve got a point there.”

“Proof is in the pudding.” She loosened her armband and slid her iPhone from the sleeve. She tapped

the screen a few times and then handed her phone to me. “Check him out.”

The face staring back at me was ruggedly handsome, with the square jaw and cheekbones of a young

Viggo Mortensen. His lips were full and generous, curled into a knowing smile. He was looking directly

into the camera, and there was something almost too candid in his pale blue eyes, like he knew what

you were thinking and was game for whatever you suggested.

“Wow,” was the only word I could breathe out. I swallowed hard and quickly handed Eddy’s phone back

to her.

“Wow, indeed,” Eddy said and laughed lightly. “Uma says he’s worth every penny she pays. Well, you’ve

seen her kids. They’re gorgeous.”

“And she found him in Copenhagen?”

Eddy nodded. “He’s one of the donors at Copenhagen Cryo.”

I shook my head in wonder. No wonder Uma kept going back for more. Sure there was nothing sexual

going on between them, but there must have been some spark that made her decide he was the right

donor for her.

#8sunday snippets entry…Weekend Writing Warriors… The Trouble with Romance

I’m really happy that I’ve rejoined  the Weekend Writing Warriors‘ 8snippet Sunday! I love reading the other amazing snippets by my fellow talented writers!! If you’re reading this and you have know idea what I’m talking about well then you should check out their website, http://www.wewriwa.com/ to read more about it and sign up! (Basically any Work In Progress you have going, you share 8 sentences from it after setting the scene, and receive feedback from other writers. It’s awesome!!)

Anyway I would like to introduce you all to my latest book called, The Trouble with Romance which is the sequel to my début  novel, The Trouble with Playing Cupid. In this scene, singer December Brown and her manager/ best friend, Clarissa Gregory get pulled over for accidentally running a red light.

“Afternoon, You missed that red light back there.” He replied gruffly, his eyes trained forward, as if the long stretch of road ahead was more interesting than anything in the car.

“I know! I’m sorry! I just realized it at the last minute and it was too late to reverse before the light changed to green.”

“Uh huh. License and registration, please.”

Clarissa quickly handed it over, finally chancing a sneaky glance up at him. He wasn’t classically gorgeous like Tom or Damien, December’s bodyguard, or the stylishly preened perfection of Terrence. His nose was just a little on the pointy side, his hair was at least two weeks overdue for a haircut, and he had a brooding kind of look about him as if he’d seen it all, done it all and he was judging you for it. Nevertheless, the cop was still a very good looking man. His steel gray eyes framed enviously long dark lashes that only served to compliment his olive toned complexion, all of which was topped off with a sexy 5 o’clock shadow which piqued Clarissa’s interest.

Hope you enjoyed it!! Check out the rest of the entries for #8Sunday at http://www.wewriwa.com/ just click the links :)

Thank you for reading!! xoxo
