This was such a great book! I had so much fun listening to the audiobook and it’s equally due to the plot and narrator! There are many unexpected elements to the story and this makes it even more enjoyable.

Our main character Scarlet has so much to deal with. Not only she has a problematic family, but she also has to worry about her income, has been dumped by her boyfriend and has a job she knows little about (talking “sports-ish” with people). To top it all, she seems to have inspired a killer. This guy is obsessed with her and does little to hide it. So… how much should a girl endure before taking some actions?

The writing is so warming (it made me feel comfortable while listening to it) and the plot is very entertaining. Scarlet is a great character, with a strong will and determination to stand tall against all difficulties that life may throw her way. Also, she has a very unusual pet that is also a delight to read about! I enjoyed the mystery a lot and finding out who the killer is and the reasons behind his actions.

The narration was great as well. Kimberly M. Wetherell has a great way of expressing emotions and her voice fits perfectly with the character. Voice acting was great as well and given the fact that this is a 10 hours audiobook, I was never tired to listen to her 😊

All in all, I loved this first book in the series and I cannot wait to move to the second one. A great story indeed, with a great main character and plot. Should you choose the audio version, I assure you, you will not regret it! 5 stars on my end! Enjoy!

About the book:An Everyday Hero

Title: An Everyday Hero (Heart of a Hero #2)

Author: Laura Trentham

Format: e-copy

Blurb:

At thirty, Greer Hadley never expected to be forced home to Madison, Tennessee with her life and dreams of being a songwriter up in flames. To make matters worse, a series of bad decisions and even crappier luck lands her community service hours at a nonprofit organization that aids veterans and their families. Greer cannot fathom how she’s supposed to use music to help anyone deal with their trauma and loss when the one thing that brought her joy has failed her.

When Greer meets fifteen-year-old Ally Martinez, her plans to stay detached and do as little as possible get thrown away. New to town and dealing with the death of her father in action, she hides her emotions behind a mask of bitterness and sarcasm, but Greer is able to see past it and recognizes pieces of who she once was in Ally. The raw and obvious talent she possesses could take her to the top and Greer vows to make sure life’s negativities don’t derail Ally’s potential.

After Greer is assigned a veteran to help, she’s not surprised Emmett Lawson, the town’s golden boy, followed his family’s legacy. What leaves her shocked is the shell of a man who believes he doesn’t deserve anyone’s help. A breakthrough with Ally reminds Greer that no one is worth giving up on. So she shows up one day with his old guitar, and meets Emmett’s rage head on with her stubbornness. When a situation with Ally becomes dire, the two of them must become a team to save her—and along the way they might just save themselves too.

My Review

I have been so spoiled lately by St. Martin’s. They have amazing authors, incredible romance stories and I would read anything that is published by them. I may not have been the best reviewer when it comes to timings, but for sure I am improving a lot (part of my resolutions for this year).

For today I bring you my review for the latest Laura Trentham book – “An Everyday Hero”. This is the second book in “Heart of a Hero” series, from which I have also read book one, “The Military Wife”. Book one was so emotional that I had a hard time focusing on a coherent review. I have a limited experience with family members part of the army, as my grandfather used to be a lieutenant, but I was too little to understand the consequences or too little to ask questions about his time there. I still cried my heart out reading it.

With this being said, I was scared (good “scared”) going into “An Everyday Hero” and now, weeks after finishing it, I feel the same. I was again overwhelmed with the heavy dose of emotion that is put into this novel. The author has this ability of mixing pain and optimism (for lack of better words) in the same chapter and this is creating a beautiful, beautiful mix. A bit about the plot: our female main character is Greer Hadley. She is sentenced to community work after an altercation with a juke box (yup, funny story, won’t tell you more). This means she has to work with those affected by the war in any way – veterans or people who have lost relatives on the battlefield. She is assigned to Emmett Lawson and   fifteen-year-old Ally Martinez, none of which is willing to open up.

But Greer’s unconventional methods, as well as stubbornness are two things that make her good at this job. Slowly, she has to break down Emmett’s walls and self-isolation and also convince Ally that sometimes one needs a friend. If with Emmett things are at least clear, if not easy, Ally has a life she is not willing to share with Greer.

We have two stories, two lives affected differently by war and one bridge between them. Greer will also have to deal with her own monsters and with her fear of professional failure. Learning from Ally and Emmett is her task. Learning to put aside her fears and have faith in her abilities is something Greer has to approach.

I loved this book so much and I love Laura Trentham to the Moon and back, times Infinity! The stories she gives life to are fantastic and full of emotions. I do recommend reading this book, as well as “The Military Wife”, but have some tissues close. Enjoy!

Cover review: I don’t get the cover, in relation with the story, unfortunately. I like it and I like that the color combination makes me thing of the American flag but… the 3 chairs with the girl dancing in the water, that I don’t get. Maybe there’s a scene that I’m missing from the book but… I don’t make the connection. It’s a great cover, just don’t see it tight to the story.

Favorite quote: “Fate controls all of our lives with a few seconds. A few seconds faster or slower ad you could have avoided a car wreck. A few seconds is all it takes to miss your train or buss and get you fired for being late to work. A few seconds can save a life or take one. You did everything you were capable of doing in those few seconds.”

My Review
Dear Kaitlyn Davis,
I am at a loss of words, so I stick with the basics: you are amazing!
Thank you!

Your faithful reader,

Lilly

“The Raven and the Dove” is a book that surpasses my expectations. It’s hard to believe, since any Kaitlyn Davis book is by default amazing in my world. But her last story is so… magical. I loved every word, I loved the characters and I cannot wait for the next book.

Actually, I still have a broken heart about the ending, but I’ll get to that soon.
Ok, the plot has a certain degree of political intrigue, as initially each representative of each kingdom needs to compete for a mate. But once the competitions are over, a new political intrigue, much more interesting arises. We have dragons, ravens, doves, wings and magic! We have a love that goes against all principles, even if our protagonists really try to stay away.

Kaitlyn Davis does wonders creating the sizzling scenes, the ones charged with emotions. So these were by far my favorite scenes of the entire book. When Lyana and Rafe meet, the connection is so strong and they feel the pull of the magic within. Later in the story, the forbidden romance is so well described. Rafe’s torment is by far an amazing creation.

The world that hosts this romance is beautifully created as well. It left me with a desire to learn more and I hope the next books in the series will show many other unexplored aspects of it. The ending killed me. Reading the last chapters was like having my heart ripped away, piece by piece. It was something I did not see coming and it blew my mind.

A point that must be mentioned here is the diversity we have. Lyana has dark skin and is easily accepted by those of white skin and black wings. Acceptance and understanding is highlighted through several chapters. The beauty of being different is well presented. I like that.

Well, what can I say? I loved this book, I adore Kaitlyn Davis and all her stories – especially this one. “The Raven and the Dove” has so much more to tell and it’s just the beginning. It will be an amazing journey and I cannot wait to continue the story.
Please read it, please read all her other books. They are very good!

Cover review: It is such a beautiful cover! If you read the book, there is so much to understand from it: we see the contrast between Rafe and Lyana, we see the magic that burns between them, we see the golden wings around the “1” in the lower part of the cover. We have so many beautiful details that are linked to the story.

Favorite quote: “Love is when you find a piece of yourself in someone else, a piece you never knew was missing, but without which you’d be broken. You feel whole and complete, and accepted for exactly who you are. You can be your true self, because around this person, for the first time you have no desire to pretend to be anyone else.”

Book Blitz: Image Adjuster by Lily Alexander

Image Adjuster
Lily Alexander
Publication date: March 11th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

In Hollywood, image is everything.

Being part of a power couple can mean the difference between your star rising or being iced out of roles. No one ever said the relationship had to be real.

Stephanie, an actress and the daughter of Hollywood royalty has made a thriving business out of posing as a girlfriend to celebrities who need a bit of a PR boost. Everything is scripted and when the contract ends everyone goes their separate way.

No feelings, no risk, just acting.

Devon is just another client – no matter how handsome he might be, how compatible they seem. The arrangement works perfectly. It’s all business. Definitely just business.

Unless it’s not.

Blogger’s Thoughts

The fake lover trope is one of my favorites. Imagine my happy heart when Xpresso announced they have ARCs available for reviewers! So my review will come soon 🙂

 

EXCERPT:

“Sounds like I’m barely needed at all.”

“Oh, quite the contrary.” He wiggled his black eyebrows at her suggestively. “I need you. I want you. You are an integral part of this scheme.” He playfully sandwiched one of her hands with his own and cradled it gently before releasing it again.

Stephanie shook her head, trying desperately to ignore the tiny flash of heat in her chest at his words and touch.

“You sure you haven’t done this before?”

“Absolutely.” He reached across the table and took both of her hands into his. Stephanie sobered for a moment and was caught up in the serious expression of his icy eyes that were anything but cold. “Stephanie Von Feldt? Would you please help me con the press and general public into believing that we are a hardcore devoted couple? Then have a fantastic blow-out breakup fight with me in public so everyone knows it’s over?” His playfully serious expression was just too much.

“Why, Devon Greene, I would be so honored to charge you a small fortune for providing just such a service.”

As Devon planted a gentle kiss on her knuckles, the quiet sound of a camera shutter went off just on the other side of the patio.

“Whoops, spotted.” Devon’s bright smile faded a bit, then brightened again. “Guess today that guy got lucky. That’ll be worth a couple weeks’ pay with TMZ.”

“I’ll never understand why the ones with just a phone don’t turn that fake shutter sound off. Seems silly to give yourself away if you’ve managed to ninja stealth yourself an exclusive picture.”

Devon threw his head back in laughter, nodding his agreement.

Momentarily distracted, he tapped out a text to someone after his phone pinged, and glanced around, a half-grin on his face.

“Everything okay?”

“Yeah,” he nodded. “Someone from work is giving me a hard time. I think she’s around somewhere or drove by or something.”

After a few watchful moments, he let it go and they chatted a bit more, his attention split between Stephanie and his phone.

It was silly to feel jealous, but she couldn’t help it. Said co-worker was a she, and he was amused by her.

Giving herself a mental slap, Stephanie pushed those thoughts and feelings away and focused on their conversation and her coffee.

Not long after, they finished their drinks and went their separate ways, Stephanie torn between being nervous about spending so much time with Devon all at once with minimal script planning time and being relieved that it would be over before she could make a fool of herself or lose her professional edge.

Who was she kidding – she was already losing her edge. The worst part was that for the first time since she could remember, she actually genuinely got along with a client.

She liked him.

The very idea made her shiver and tingle with long-repressed feelings like want and need.

Stephanie was in big trouble.

Blogger’s Thoughts

Would you look at that cover?! So fitting for a main character that knows her way in the kitchen! I am so excited to share this with you guys today. Courtesy of Xpresso and the author, of course, I also have an ARC and I cannot wait to share my review! The excerpt below sound so amazing 🙂

 

EXCERPT:

By the time three thirty rolls around, I haven’t had a customer in over an hour, so I decide to run upstairs and make a cup of tea. Just as I’m about to turn on the television while I wait for the water to boil, the bell over the shop door rings. Note to business owners, the ticket to more foot traffic is leaving the store in pursuit of tea. I might need to write a book. I could call it “If You Make Tea, They Will Come.”

I turn off the pot and run downstairs to see who my customer is. When I hit the bottom step, I have a clear view of a person standing next to my brightly painted apothecary drawer full of carnelian beads. I’m either in the throes of a major hallucination or dreams really do come true. Huck Wiley, or someone who looks enough like him to be his identical twin, is standing under one of the three beaded chandeliers hanging from the ceiling above my workstation. He’s looking at the necklace I was just working on.

He’s wearing jeans so faded and torn they look like they’re ready for the rag bin, yet I’m willing to bet he spent more on them than most people spend on ten pairs. The rock god is sporting a vintage U2 t-shirt and a black leather jacket. I can’t see what his shoes look like because there’s a display case blocking my view, but I’d put money on biker boots.

The floorboards creak as I step forward. My disbelieving eyes focus like a thirsty wanderer lost in the desert having just spotted a distant source of water. Whoever he is, he turns and looks right at me. His smile is so bright I may have gasped out loud in response. Seven more steps land me directly in front of him.

“Can I help you?” My tone is prim, reminiscent of a school librarian daring a student to try to check out a book before paying his overdue fine.

“Hey there,” he croons in that voice, the one I know so well from having spent hours listening to his music. My mouth hangs open like I’m a drooling idiot, but I can’t seem to close it. “I heard you gave beading classes and I was wondering if you have a special session for kids.”

I temporarily forget that he and I speak the same language. Did he just ask me about beading classes? I must be experiencing a particularly vivid fantasy. Rock star Huck Wiley can’t possibly be a closet beader, can he? Wait, he said “for kids” … Maybe I fell asleep when I went upstairs to make tea and this dream is making up for last night’s ball and chain fiasco. If so, it’s a good one.

The vision in front of me releases an easy laugh, a real laugh. Huck Wiley is probably used to odd reactions from strange women, and let me say, I’m doing my darndest to behave strangely. “Would you tell me when those classes are?” he persists.

Forcing myself to behave as normally as possible, I robotically tell him, “I have one on Wednesday and Thursday right after school, so four o’clock. They last for an hour and the price of the class includes the materials for one bracelet. It usually takes four classes to complete a project.” I don’t mean to brag, but my acting skills have gone untapped until now and I managed to get that whole sentence out without tripping over my tongue.

He nods. “Would you be available for a private lesson during the morning sometime?”

I shrug awkwardly like I’m having some kind of seizure. “For now, or during the summer?” What kid isn’t at school during school hours now?

“My daughter will be doing online school and I’d like for her to have a break during the day. You know, other kids get recess and lunch, I’d like for Maggie to get out and about.”

My jaw drops wide open. My earlier attempts at appearing normal have failed me. I’m back to feeling like I’m in a science fiction television show and I’ve just leaped out of my body. It’s like I’m watching me have this conversation with the biggest rock star of our time from the ceiling. The part of me that’s escaped its confines wants to shout down to the rest of me, “Close your mouth, girl!” But I can’t, so I don’t.

Instead, I say, “I’m sorry, but are you Huck Wiley?”

“I am.”

“Why are you here?” I demand. “Don’t you live in Los Angeles or something?”

“Or something,” he answers evasively. Before he can say anything else, I reach across the counter and touch the man’s face. His slightly stubbly beard scratches at my fingertips and then I swear I don’t know what comes over me, but I pinch him.

He jumps back and releases a short bark of surprise, assuring me he’s not some figment I’ve conjured. “I’m so sorry,” I say, quickly regaining my senses. “I thought maybe I was dreaming you up or something.”

“I think you’re supposed to pinch yourself when you think you’re dreaming,” he says, looking at me like I might be an escaped mental patient.

Author Bio:

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
