I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)

Review: Bloodlines

Bloodlines Bloodlines by Tabatha Kiss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

so much is happening that for once i won't tell the start of it. but one event leads to a war between families and continents. i was happy to learn how a certain character we know from previous books has made his escape! (even telling this is not even telling!)
you get sucked in from the moment the book starts 12 years ago and then moves forwards to the now.
the pain, the heartache, the brutality, the killings... it's like the other three books were a build up to this one even if timewise you could start with this one and then read the others.

a must have if you loved the Snake Eyes books!!

Review: Detective Bear (Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance)

Detective Bear (Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance) Detective Bear (Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance) by Scarlett Grove
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

don't know what it is, but i always like scarlett grove's books. this one ain't no different.
Gauge has been investigating the crystal problem for months and he's finally making progress, so much so that he's able to infiltrate them. just as he's about to walk out he gets a message on his phone, he's been matched on mate.com. he knows he can't meet up right now but he also doesn't want to not respond. looking at the pictures of his possible mate has his heart beating double.
lola lockheart has been forced by her stepbrother to cut crystal. she's not to be spoken to, she can't leave and his hands are way too loosely groping her at every chance he gets. her one escape and connection with the outside world is a cellphone she keeps hidden. out of curiosity she reads up on mate.com and even signs up. if he would know about this all she wouldn't last a day! her nightmare comes true when her phone beeps just as her stepbrother is in her tent. she'd been matched.
everything starts going wrong. there is a new guard, one who can't stay away, one who's she's drawn too like a moth to a flame. when the guards tells her who he really is and he's getting her out of there she insists on getting a token from her late mother.

and then the story really gets interesting and the pace picks up as we move to the conclusion of this story.

another wonderful addition to the Bear Patrol series. knowing a few more are coming makes me one happy reader! on pins and needles untill the nest one.

Review: Gambling on Her Bear

Gambling on Her Bear Gambling on Her Bear by Anna Lowe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

karen is a dragon shifter who's convinced she can't fly, is rather impulsive and holds a little bit of magic.
when she has er eyes set on a blood diamond she wants to "take back", her impulsive nature not only lands her in the hands of vampire but also in the path of bear shifter Tanner Lloyd. he's infiltrated the vampire coven for his own reasons. as head of security, he gets to handle to new bundle of trouble karen, the same woman he had the best night of his life with.
he wants to help karen (and he does) but he also can't forget about his own agenda. he meets up with her again and puts all his cards on the table, hoping to work something out.
in the middle of all of this both are fighting (and losing) the attraction toward each other.

a thriller ride from start to finish. karen and her dragon are simply a hott, their conversations are too funny at times. Tanner and his bear: just the same. it really was a joy to read about them, even better that it was set in the same world were we got to know some of the characters in the first place!
a must have if you enjoyed the CIV series by multiple authors.

Review: Her Wolf

Her Wolf Her Wolf by Rebecca Royce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ashlee has one male on her mind, but he's hairy, silent, broody and solitary. and he walks on four paws ....
she's drawn to the lone wolf each time she passes his enclosure. he's never interacting with the rest of the pack. one day when she's thinking about the wolf she breaks her one rule and actually talks to him. what she didn't expect was for him to talk back to her in her mind!
tristan doesn't know what comes over him when the one female talks to him and seems to understand him. captured and trapped for months now, tristan can't shift back without giving away he's a shifter. but now that ashlee can hear him, he knows he has to get out, and fast.

what follow is a revealing conversation and a lot of convincing. when ashlee comes to free him during the night, he hoped he would have a shot at going home without much trouble. but they didn't even get of the parking lot as they're attacked. his brother rushes in to safe achlee but tristan is growly. for one he's holding his brother responsible for him being captured, convinced he had something to do with it. secondly he got his paws on ashlee!

with this whirlwind start we get thrown into the deep end, or rather ashlee is. a whole new world opens up to her, family secrets are shared and told. pragmatic as she is, she rolls with the flow. she doesn't just accept things but she doesn't whine about them either. she just wants to understand. a whole heap of troubles is now on her plate and ashlee is now the only one who can sort out these troubles, with the help of her newfound pack.

captivating read, it had a nice pace to it. never did i feel like a scene was being dragged out. it had a nice build up, loved the characters.
well done rebecca royce

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

but together they're starting to form a bond, the strongest possible. terra wants it, kaden too but for that too happen he has to tell his deepest secret. but he knows he can't fight it and he knows it means a major change in his life and career.

really enjoyed the third part in this story. terra and kaden get their story told, more about the wolf hunter comes to the surface. with this book we have to realize that this person is a twisted person with so many aces up his sleeve, one would wonder if they're ever going to catch him!

thrilling, captivating, endearing. loved it a lot. now on to the next book.
