Violet

I knew at a very young age that I wasn’t normal. I may look normal. I may act normal. But I am not normal, not in the head at least. Wait, that sounds bad.

 

When I started kindergarten, I was able to pick out all 50 states on a map. By first grade, I knew all of the names of all of the students and teachers in my entire school. My dad and I always watched football on TV together. When I turned seven, he took me to my first Miami Dolphins game. I started calling the plays even before they were made. And by the time I was 10, I could tell you what happened on any day of my life without thought. I had total recall, no hesitation, no conscious thought.

 

I’m not autistic. I’m not a savant or a genius. It’s more than a case of photographic memory. In fact, I don’t memorize anything. I have Hyperthymesia. Plain and simple: If I live it, hear it, or see it – I remember it. No exceptions.

 

Pike

I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a cop. Not just any cop, but a detective. Chasing bad guys and taking down mobsters. But like my good buddy, Mick, says, “You can’t always get want you want.”

 

So instead of arresting criminals and keeping the streets safe, I am dancing in a dingy club, making a living shaking my ass and pulling dollar bills out of my crack. Not the life I grew up wanting to lead. Not what I expected or hoped for myself.

 

But maybe if I wait it out. If I hang tight, it will all be worth it in the end. I will get what I came for and move on. I will earn my future and pave my own way. What is that he says? “If you try sometimes…you get what you need.” From your lips to God’s ears, Mick.

 

**STANDALONE. No Cliffhanger! Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for readers over the age of 18.**

My Review:

While it was a little strange, I liked the book very much and I had a lot of fun reading it. The characters were full of life and very funny. I loved the chemistry between them and I love that their relationship started very normal. Even their families were awesome!

Funny is that Pike was embarrassed about his current position as a stripper and also Violet was embarrassed about her extraordinary memory. Reality is that their reasons were not real enough. I mean … I wish I had Violet’s memory (Not sure about a stripper boyfriend though). Still, once they do start to go out, sparks fire up the attraction they already feel for each other. The hot scenes are very nicely built as well.

Oh, I do want to mention that I liked how the author decided to tell the story, by alternating Pike and Violet’s thoughts. I felt closer to them and I loved to see different perspectives of the story. Also I could see easily the difference between the male and female side.

It’s a great story to pass the time, easy to read, funny… Congrats and Enjoy J

Author Info


Hi! My name is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous kids. I wasn’t always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the University of Florida – Go Gators! – I attended law school at Stetson University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time counseling mental health patients in an outpatient psychiatric hospital. But, until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing families to receive abused and neglected foster children.

So, that brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There, Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision ever!

I spend most of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some “me” time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don’t discriminate – a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.

Thirty Days: The Complete Series by Bibi Paterson

Book blurb:

Thirty Days: The Complete Series
(Thirty Days Have September, November, April & June)

Set in London and Brighton, Thirty Days is a fabulously provocative romance series that gives you a very steamy love affair between a hot guy and an unsure heroine, baked goods and some rather unexpected twists and turns along the way.

Shy and unassuming, Abigail James loves to bake. She dreams of opening her own dessert café but instead she spends her days working as a data analyst and sneaking in her cakes as the company’s ‘diet assassin’ on the side.

Taylor Hudson, the enigmatic owner of Hudson International, has been captivated by Abby’s innocence and quiet charm since the day she started working for the company. However, his history with women is marred by personal circumstances and he has vowed to stay away.

A chance meeting sees Abby’s world turned upside down when, drawn in by Taylor’s chocolate brown eyes and unexpected kindness, she starts on a journey of attraction that will see her heart and soul laid bare.

While their attraction is mutual, both Abby and Taylor have their own inner demons that they need to overcome if their relationship can move forward for them to find their own happily ever after.

Due to the nature of the content this book is intended for mature audiences.

Excerpt:

I look up and stare at myself in the bathroom mirror. With annoyance I rub my panda eyes, cursing that I had not thought to buy waterproof mascara. Typical, I think to myself. The one day I actually took some effort in getting ready for work, everything is undone by a five-minute downpour at the bus stop. I glance down at my watch and realise that if I don’t hurry, I am going to miss my opportunity to deliver my packages.

Swiping at my eyes with a tissue, I manage to repair most of the black streaks hurriedly. With that done, I pick up my bags and, glancing around, sneak out of Hudson International’s ladies’ toilets. Taking a deep breath and summoning as much stealth as I can muster, I hurry down the corridor towards the staff kitchen, grateful to find it empty. Glancing over my shoulder, I quickly unpack my packages onto the counter.

“So you are the diet assassin, then?” The voice startles me, and I almost drop the box that I am holding. I can feel the flush spread up my neck as I spin round to find myself staring into a pair of delicious dark chocolate brown eyes.

“Um, um,” I stutter, completely disorientated by the man standing in front of me.

“Don’t worry. Your secret is safe with me,” he replies, helping himself to one of the chocolate cheesecake muffins that I had been placing on the countertop. He takes a bite and lets out a small sigh.

“No good?” I ask tentatively, my heart sinking. I had spent hours the previous evening getting the recipe exactly right, and I thought I had finally nailed it. But obviously not.

“No,” he replies, my heart sinking. “Too good,” he says with a grin. Unwittingly I find myself grinning back.

“Um, I’d better get these offloaded, then,” I reply. I quickly place the remaining few muffins on the counter, pack up my boxes and turn around expecting the mystery man to have taken his muffin and left. But no, he is still leaning nonchalantly against the door frame, grinning at me as he slowly eats the muffin.

“Sorry, have to dash,” I mutter, glancing at my watch. “Meeting in ten minutes.” I feel completely unnerved by this stranger who I have never seen in the office before. Almost grudgingly he lets me pass, loaded with my empty boxes. As I draw level with him, it feels as if time stands still. The hairs on my neck stand on end as I take in his citrusy smell, the dark eyes crinkling with humour and his lush, full lips that seem to be inviting me to kiss him. I swear I am about to swoon, and that is seriously not a good thing.

“So why do you do it?” he asks in a husky voice, as if he is affected as much by this chance meeting as I am.

I can feel the heat flaming my cheeks as I reply, “I love to bake.” I shrug my shoulders as if trying to shake off his gaze and swiftly push past him. I find myself hurrying down the corridor at almost a running pace, and I have to mentally give myself a nudge to slow down. It seems that luck is on my side, and I make it to my desk, where I quickly stow away my boxes in my drawers.

Teaser_30DTCSpng

I breathe a sigh of relief as I turn on my computer but find my mind wandering back to the mystery man. I cannot understand why he has affected me so much. It is not even as if he said very much to me. Yet his presence seemed to speak volumes, and I have to admit to myself that at this moment I feel incredibly turned on. At the memory of his lips, I actually feel my heart quicken and my pelvis tighten. Banishing these thoughts, I turn to concentrate on my email, fearing that my tell-tale blush will give me away.

I lose myself in my inbox for several minutes, when I am suddenly brought back to reality by a tapping foot. “Come on, Abby, you are going to be late for the staff meeting, and I hear today’s muffins are to die for.”

Michelle Harrington-Black sends me an arch look, knowing full well who is responsible for today’s cakes, but as my confidante and best friend at Hudson, she has been sworn to secrecy.

Lucky in Love #1

Blurb

He says she’s a nuisance. She thinks he’s a jerk. Together they might be the perfect match.

Riordan Faraday is about to reach his breaking point. He’s got art classes to teach, a needy mum to care for, and most importantly, a painting to finish. But without time or inspiration, he hasn’t been able to paint a thing and it’s driving him mad. So when a silly American girl shows up on his doorstep with a wild proposal, he shoots her down perhaps a bit more harshly than she deserves…but it’s for the best. He can’t afford any more distractions at the moment, especially not beautiful brown-eyed ones.

Samantha Meyer—Sam, to her friends—is on a mission to find her late grandmother’s necklace. The long-lost piece of jewelry is the only thing she has left of Gram and Sam is determined to see that dream fulfilled before she returns home to New Jersey and takes up the reins of the family business. But she wasn’t counting on a sexy, surly painter to stand in her way.

Review-Banner

I’m giving this book 5 stars. Why? Pretty simple. It has everything to make me love it! I really tried to give it 4. But the problem with 4 stars is that I am supposed to say what I wanted for 5 stars and I cannot say I wanted something more. I had fun, I felt the chemistry of the characters, I had connection with them and I was very comfortable with the writing style.

The author is very mature and knows how to combine romance with good and developed characters and as well a touch of fun. While Riordan tries to use his talent and seeks motivation to move forward, Sam tries to look for a purpose after her grandmother’s death. Both characters complete each other and help each other to put some order in their lives.

To shorten the review a little, please please read the story, it will make you love the characters and it will bring you some moments of entertainment. Congratulations to the author for a great story !

My Review:

I loved the story!!!  It’s very intriguing and with a lot of turns and a lot of mystery as well.  Romance is not missing either, so I can say this book is addressed to a large type of readers.

The subject is a classic one: evil against good, demons versus… prophets?  That’s a new one for me. I’ll stop here with the details. I did not follow how the transition between the real and spiritual world was happening. I mean what happens with his body? How is time flowing between the two worlds?  There are some unanswered questions, but it’s just small details for my evil eye J

Micah was not entirely to my taste unfortunately. He is very mature for his age. I mean, for a 15 year old he can act very mature in many discussions, even has friends older than him who seek his advice.  I’m not sure this was the author’s intention or just how the character came up. Also, when he starts seeing demons and fighting he is very confident in his actions and even in his abilities. However, when it comes up to asking a girl out, he proves to be very very shy.

Since there is some originality to the story and since I loved it, even though there are things to be improved, I award 4 stars and wait impatiently for the next part. Happy reading!

Book Review: Surviving High School

SurvivingHighSchoolTourBanner
Book & Author Details:SHS
Surviving High School
by Lele Pons & Melissa de la Cruz
Published by: Gallery Books
Publication date: April 5th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Synopsis:

Vine superstar Lele Pons—“one of the coolest girls on the web” (Teen Vogue)—teams up with #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz (The Isle of the Lost) in this lovable debut novel about the wilds and wonders of high school that’s as laugh-out-loud addictive as Lele’s popular videos.

Ten million followers and I still sit alone at lunch. Lele is a bulls-eye target at her new school in Miami until, overnight, her digital fame catapults the girl with cheerleader looks, a seriously silly personality, and a self-deprecating funny bone into the popular crowd. Now she’s facing a whole new set of challenges—the relentless drama, the ruthless cliques, the unexpected internet celebrity—all while trying to keep her grades up and make her parents proud.

Filled with the zany enthusiasm that has made Lele into Vine’s most viewed star, this charming novel is proof that high school is a trip. From crushing your crushes (what’s up with that hot transfer student Alexei??) to throwing Insta-fake parties with your BFFs and moaning over homework (GAH) with your frenemies, high school is a rollercoaster of exhilarating highs and totally embarrassing lows. Leave it to Lele to reassure us that falling flat on your face is definitely not the end of the world. Fans of Mean Girls will love this fun and heartwarming fish-out-of-water story.

My Review:

The book’s main focus is about how Lele, a Venezuelan teenager, tries to fit in at her new school in Miami. Even though the story is based on Lele Pons’s real life, I’m trying to judge this from a YA fiction book, not an autobiography or something of the sorts. Our character is very known on the Internet, having a very successful Vine account where she uploads videos inspired by real life moments.

The book was interesting to a point. I expected more from it. I understood that someone may be famous online, while being not so popular in school (is this really such a bad thing?). She does have some friends and people to hang out with and somehow she craves more. I did appreciate her maturity when it comes to her relationship with her best friend Alexei. From a writing point of view, I loved the funny parts and I loved that the drama was set to a minimum, even though the main character was focused on her looks as any teenager would be.

It is a good start, but I wanted more and I felt like something was missing from the story. I would have expected more action, I would have expected to know more on how she started posting her videos or why Alexei wanted to help her. I don’t know…. Something to light that spark of “book addiction”. If this is inspired from the real Lele Pons’s life, I can say she had some interesting moments and I am happy all went well in the end.

Book Review: The Renegade Queen

Review_TheRenegadeQueen_Banner

GENRE: Historical fiction

BLURB:MediaKit_BookCover_TheRenegadeQueen

 So controversial she was erased from history. She was the first women to run for President; campaigning before women could vote. So feared by the powerful, she was thrown in jail on Election Day.  Her social revolution attracted the outcasts who were left out of the new wealth in New York; the immigrants, the freed slaves, the prostitutes, and the radicals. Who was she? This is the true story of Victoria Woodhull.

Excerpt:

 I was conceived in a whore’s tent at a Methodist revival. I know this because my father recounted the story often and with some pride. In those days, a meeting was not in a big tent but rather in an empty field surrounded by small tents. Prostitutes, hawkers, and every unsavory fool who had something to sell to the downtrodden camped out in tents, perching themselves like hawks ready to scoop up feeble mice. The preacher man encouraged them to stay, wanting to turn each one into a tick mark indicating a saved soul. Mama, who would weep uncontrollably for the world’s sins and dry her tears with the most stomachchurning stream of never-ending underworld profanity, begged Father to attend the revivals. Once Father realized that fancy ladies would be surrounding the meeting, Mama didn’t have to beg no more. He always said both the preacher and the whores had a way of saving men. The preacher kept a tally in his Bible, and the whore kept a tally by counting the cash in her hand. Father, a smooth talker who could convince Saint Peter to open his gates for the devil, always made friends with the whores. Without the money to make a tent of their own, Father wormed his way into the whores’ hearts, all the while keeping his eye on the prized dirty canvas. It didn’t take long before a boyish wink won the tent, if only for an hour.

 My review:

“The Renegade queen” is an amazing story about a woman’s struggles in a world of men. Showing a glimpse into American history, the book covers some real facts,  the author managing to combine a real event with a touch of fiction. While struggling to understand the first pages, as I initially considered the beginning to be a bit dull, I came to understand why our heroine acted the way she did later in the book and from where came her resolution to change something for the women.

I do believe this book is not for the ones not willing to go beyond our current days. It may be difficult to understand why women were so willing to submit themselves to rough treatments and humiliation. Myself being one, I felt enraged even. Still, going back in time, in a world in which only men were powerful, smart, able to think and do business, when a woman decides to take actions into her own hands it shifts the balance of power.

I do believe that even if the man was the strong image of that time and a woman starts to gain courage and power, the book’s message is that only standing together as equals we can make our lives easier. This is not about who’s the smart one or about a female’s charm. This is about a fight fo equity and place in society.

Very interesting, with a very good message. Loved it and recommend it – if you are looking of an intelligent book.
