Have You Heard? Lament of The Fallen by Andy Peloquin is ON FIRE!

Bucelarii-2-Small

First of all, I want to congratulate the author, Andy Peloquin, for his well-deserved win of the 2017 RONE Award for Best Fantasy/Sci-Fi book. Ironically, this happened just as I finished reading book two in The Last Bucelarii series, Lament of The Fallen, which is the very book I am reviewing now.

Lament of The Fallen … Lament of The Fallen. I didn’t really get this title until I was well into reading this book, where I discovered what a perfectly matched title Andy had chosen for this story. Perhaps, if one thinks about it long and hard, a reader will come to grasp a tiny piece of what this book is about simply by playing it on repeat in one’s mind. I’ve never expounded thus on a book title prior to this one, but it just goes to show how deeply this story touched me, no, grabbed me, on every spectrum of the emotional scale.

The Hunter continues his quest from book one, Blade of The Destroyer, in this second gripping, emotionally devastating story. Yes, devastating. The author shredded my heart in pieces as it broke over and over and over again for the Hunter, a magnificent anti-hero (he can be my hero forever), a ruthless killer with a ginormous heart who refuses to take orders from the demons living inside him. If you want a full on synopsis of Lament of The Fallen, please visit Andy Peloquin’s various social media platforms to inquire further. I absolutely abhor spoilers, and I’m not going to start writing them now.

As far as how this story impacted me, all I can say is, “Wear your armor when reading this one. You’ll need it.” There were so many times I wanted to cry my eyes out, to reach inside the pages of the story unfolding before my eyes to ease the pain, suffering, and deception experienced by the Hunter. Who would have thought I’d ever feel compassion on such a strong magnitude for a killer? Ahhh, but the Hunter is no typical killer – he has a heart.

If you haven’t yet begun reading this exquisite artist’s work, I highly encourage you to do so now. Caution: if you have to get up early the next morning for work, you may want to postpone reading Andy Peloquin’s beautifully creative works of art until the weekend. You will stay up long after your usual bedtime, turning the pages (or swiping to the next) as quickly as possible to discover just what happens next.

In my truly honest opinion, Andy Peloquin is the most creative writer I’ve read to date, and yes, this includes every other book I’ve ever read in my life. Lament of The Fallen…just do it, but start on book one in the series, Blade of The Destroyer. Oh! And don’t forget my very favorite book of all time by the same author, Child of The Night Guild – a must read, blow your mind kind of story!

Now, I’m on to read book three, Gateway to The Past.

Kudos and congratulations, Andy Peloquin. Great job!

Have You Heard My Review of Anguish, Book 1 in the Journals Trilogy by DM Earl?

Anguish.jpg

I gave this awesome story a five-star rating because it just has all the elements needed for a great romantic suspense: a troubled heroine (Quinn), a sexy male (Stone), a best friend (Ivy), and an evil man who is bent on destroying Quinn’s family. I was captivated on page one of the prologue. Such statements as these really piqued my interest:

“How the f*ck did I end up like this; afraid of my own shadow, living isolated from the entire world?”

“Since the day that ‘It’ happened, the only thing that has helped me maintain my sanity is writing things down – my thoughts, dreams, nightmares, and fantasies – they all go into my journals.”

I don’t do spoilers, but this racy book kept my attention completely, and I read it in one day. Don’t pass up the opportunity to read this great story. It’s full of love, hate, revenge, murder, romance, friendship, and trust. Great work, DM Earl! I’ll be reading the rest of this series.

She gains the trust of the only other human familiar with the Deamhan lifestyle. With his help she finds not only can the Deamhan not be trusted but it s her own father, president of a ruthless organization of researchers, who has diabolically maintained that distrust.

Have You Heard’s Review for Deamhan by Isaiyan Morrison

Deamhan was absolutely enchanting. This is not a romance story, and I’m finding myself drawn more and more closely to stories without all the romance, though I do love a good romance too.

Deamhan captured my attention right away. The four types of Deamhan, vampires, black magic, and humans. What do they all have in common? Deamhan. This is not your typical ‘vampire’ story; no, it’s so much more. Very intense, full of suspense, twists, turns, and intrigue, I didn’t want to put this down. I pride myself on my knowledge of words, but Isaiyan Morrison actually had me using the definition option for a few great words. I’m impressed.

Thank you so much for a great read!! I am eager to delve into the next book in the series to discover what happens next. The small cliffhanger left in Deamhan has certainly piqued my curiosity. Well done, Isaiyan Morrison! Well done!

Have You Heard? Writing Mr. Right by T.K. Leigh is #Live + My Review

Title: Writing Mr. Right
Author: T.K. Leigh
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: June 26, 2017

Blurb
My name is Molly Brinks, but most people know me as Vivienne Foxx, bestselling author of chance meetings, stolen glances, and the much-needed happily ever after. My addictions include coffee, home improvement television, and the occasional pint
of ice cream. The love of my life is an eighty-pound Labrador retriever named Pee Wee. At the age of twenty-nine-plus-one, I am at the top of my game…professionally. My personal life is a completely different story, one best left untold. Success has its sacrifices and I’ve been more than happy to put my
search for Prince Charming on the back burner while I create fictitious tales of the naïve virgin, the broken girl with a torrid past, and the strong-willed student finding their own Mr. Right… Until one hell of a case of writer’s block and a tight deadline set by my publisher forces me outside my cozy downtown Boston apartment in search of inspiration.
Armed with an account on every dating website out there, I devise a plan. Meet some nice, professional men. Go on a few dates. Hope one of them has the spark I need to finish my book. Then walk away.
But plans are meant to be broken.
My name is Molly Brinks, and this is my story about
Writing Mr. Right.

Have You Heard’s Review of Writing Mr. Right by T.K. Leigh

Beautifully written, hilarious, with a taboo romance that will have the reader drooling!!! T.K. Leigh outdoes herself once again. When a writer gives me a glimpse of who he or she may be via the words written in his or her book, I am all in. T.K. Leigh captivated my interest with the cover, but the quality is on the inside: the story.

A fabulously witty and romantic story you will not want to put down. Molly and her ‘ideas’ on romance will make you laugh out loud – a lot! This is something I definitely look for when reading a rom-com, and T.K. Leigh does not disappoint.

Something I always watch with T.K. Leigh’s work is the editing. Try as I might, it’s so difficult to find a single error in her work because she and her awesome editor, Kim Young, make one heck of a team. Great work, ladies!!

Need a good laugh? A lighthearted romance? It’s all here, wrapped up in a beautiful cover. I highly recommend Writing Mr. Right.

Have You Heard About The Royal Treatment by MJ Summers?

51RWci-+gRL._UY250_

Comedy at its finest! The Royal Treatment by MJ Summers is hilariously uplifting and refreshing! I couldn’t put it down. I’m not a huge fan of Rom-Com, but this has got to be my favorite one so far. MJ Summers does a delightful job of pulling the reader in from page, one and she doesn’t let go until you’re finished reading the book. Witty, delightful, angsty, and full of laugh out loud moments, this book definitely needs to be considered as your next read.

The characters, Tessa and the Prince, are absolutely wonderful. One moment fighting, the next, laughing. Coming to know one another purely for selfish reasons on both their ends, these two are the epitome of pure romance.

Well done, MJ Summers! Well done!

Have You Heard? About My Review of Good Kinda Crazy by Jettie Woodruff?

I.
Just.
Can’t.
Wow!!!! This story just rocked my world completely!!! I really thought Peace Love Resistance was amazing, but Jettie Woodruff takes a huge step forward in this riveting and life-changing story, Good Kinda Crazy. You must read it. You must give it a chance and keep an open mind. It may not be for you, but it is most definitely for me.

Jettie brings characters from Peace Love Resistance into Good Kinda Crazy, which is essential for the story to continue. When there is growth, there is more depth, and that is exactly what the author did with this insanely SANE story!! I love it! I am so in love with this book and these characters.

Atlantis, Ryle, Scout, Tristan, Tobias, Baby-T, Keisha … there are more, but I feel as though I know them. Really.

You know how it is said that if you want to change the world, you must first begin with yourself? Yes, well, that is precisely what Jettie Woodruff is doing with this book – she’s changing the world, one reader at a time. She writes in a way that makes me want to be a better person, eat healthier, be kinder, complain less, and throw hearts, not darts. I found my very foundational beliefs challenged, and I am happy about it!!!

Five stars are simply not enough for this read. There needs to be something for those rare stories that are set apart with a level of excellence not often written by many. Bravo! Bravo, Jettie! Your best book yet!

blurb

I would like to tell you a story about true friends, change, and real love. This is deeper than a love story, this is a connection you can’t possibly explain without first experiencing it, a love rarely found. When all I wanted to do was go home and put it all behind me, one chance meeting sent me in another direction. I traveled a road I could have never imagined.

Before you invest your time in our story, I should warn you, these people aren’t like your typical friends. These kinds of friends are few and far between. If you don’t believe in love at first sight, or second chance love, then you should probably skip our story.

I was written in him, he was written in me, we were written in the stars.

My hope is that you go into our story with an open mind and like me, find something life-changing you can take with you. Because one person believed in me, I didn’t give up. I became someone I didn’t even know I wanted to be.

For her. For him. For me. For us. For humanity.

“Ok so as much smut as I’ve read in the past 5 years, how has NO one ever mentioned this??It’s the hottest thing I’ve read in a long time and it’s not even dirty. It’s real, the connection…I literally felt it right along with her. I’m definitely intrigued and want to learn more about it.”

Excerpt

“I learned it was okay to just be me. I learned we’re not all the same and we’re not supposed to be. Most of all, I learned to love with all my heart and soul.”

Good Kinda Crazy by Jettie Woodruff, ©2017

“Everyone deserves that kind of love, including me. The kind of love where you spend every single day building each other up. The kind of love where even a five-minute quickie behind a tree is more than just sex. The kind of love where cutting up veggies and doing the dishes together is a form of foreplay. The kind of love where kissing is your favorite thing to do. The kind of love where you can’t be near each other without touching. The kind of love where you connect so deeply it’s almost painful, in a good kinda crazy way. The kind that entwined our souls in and out of the Universe. The kind even death couldn’t separate.”

About the Author

I’ve always been a writer and a storyteller, or a bullshitter as my dad would say, but I’ve never written what should be read. I’m very good at writing what my readers want me to write, but I did that. Now I want to write what they need to hear. If I can write a love story and entwine it with a little life advice to help make this a better place to live for all of us, then that’s what I want to be a part of.
My first book since deciding to be a part of the solution and not part of the problem is Peace, Love, Resistance.
Why the change when I was doing so good?
You get what you put out and I want to read and write what I want back.
Simple as that.

Love,

Jettie
