Review: The Elf by Max Dune


Summary: 

Elves are dying in the North Pole, and none of their scientists can find a cure. They believe it’s a virus, unleashed by a powerful enemy. All signs point to Jack Frost, who’s been biding his time from afar. Watching. Waiting. Plotting. One brave elf, to save his kind, will venture out to meet evil in the eye. But he uncovers a mystery more dangerous than he could have ever imagined. Now Lucian must join a group of warriors and fight. Fuego; a flame-wielding pyro.Tiktok; a brilliant bomb expert, Yuriko; a deadly ninja assassin. And Bullets; a hot-headed gun aficionado. These unlikely heroes must learn to work together and defeat the rising evil. Or Christmas will soon be lost…forever.


My Review:

If there is anything this book has, it is plenty of imagination.
I can honestly say I never read anything quite like it and if you are missing Christmas and cant wait for it to come (like me) than this book is a perfect read to ease the pain of waiting.
I am on a fantasy kick lately so I wanted to read this book because I thought it was fantasy and boy, was I wrong...and so happy to be wrong. This was a special read, with quirky and lovable characters, plenty of action and best of all, completely original. It will make you smile, it will make you sigh, it will make your heart race and it will bring out a well of emotions with it.

Blog Tour: Forsaken by Sierra Kincade (Review + Giveaway)


Synopsis 

His job is to find her, not to fall for her…

Marsella Talent has been on the run for two years, ever since her father thrust a ledger into her hands and told her to run from the police swarming their family restaurant. Now, with the cops and her father’s men desperate to get their hands on the book, she knows she can never go home.

Jake never thought he’d see Marsella again, not after he helped her escape the night of the sting operation targeting her father, August Talent. So when he stumbles upon a mysterious woman named Cassie, the spitting image of Marsella, he knows he has to gain her trust to finally make up for the mistake he made years ago.

Only the closer he gets to her, the more irresistible he finds her. And soon he realizes he’ll have to make a choice—prove his loyalty by getting back the ledger, or save the woman that he’s growing to love…

My Review:

If there is the genre I love to read on a rainy day, it is a sexy romance and when you throw a little suspense and mystery in there, I am hooked.
This is my first book from this author and I have to say, I will read all her other work.
We meet Marsella, a confident business woman, on her way to a dinner with her family where everything goes wrong, her father gives her his journal and tells her to run while there are police sirens coming closer. She goes, with a little help from Jake, whose face she didnt see that night. Cut to some time later, she is now Cassie, a waitress in a local diner. Everyone is still searching for her, including Jake. These two together are explosive. I just loved these two characters, Cassie/Marsella is strong, capable and smart while Jake is struggling with some major decisions.
For fans of steamy romaces and fast paced thrillers, this one is for you.

ARC Review: Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas


Synopsis:

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Douglas, comes the latest New Adult romance of love, hate, and everything in between... 
"We were perfect together. Until we met." 
Misha 
I can’t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me. 
In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed. 
It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever… 
And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us. 
Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am. 
We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it? 
Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances? 
F*ck it. I need to meet her. 
I just don’t expect to hate what I find. 
Ryen 
He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch. 
Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his phone number or picture or something. 
He could be gone forever. 
Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it. 
*Punk 57 is a stand alone New Adult romance. It is suitable for ages 18+.




My Review:


“Alone, Empty, Fraud, Shame, Fear, 
Close your eyes.There is nothing to see out here.”



Ever since I first read Bully, I was a fan of Penelope Douglas s writing. Her characters are complex and nothing is simply black and white. That is also the case with Punk 57.
When we meet Ryen she is the Queen Bitch of her school, she doesnt stop bullying, she is selfish and shallow. But that is just on the surface. I usually dont like books with main characters that are so unsympathetic but the writing just drew me in. Ryen and Misha have been penpals for years and are truly great friends even though they never met. I cant get into the story much because it will spoil it, just know that this book is a rollacoaster ride and you never know if everything is as it seems. Also, there are little cameos from Corrupt and I just loved how it tied the characters together.
The lyrics in this book are amazing and with the right music they could be something I would listen to. So go, pick up this book, it is a unique ride you wont want to miss.

“You loved me. We were besties. I lend you my eye shadow. But someday all you'll be is someone I used to know. - Punk”

Trisha Wolfe
Publication date: October 11th 2016
Genres: Adult, Romance, Thriller

A new threat has descended upon Arlington, and lead medial examiner Avery Johnson is in its sights, being targeted by the city’s latest serial killing menace known to the public as the Alpha Killer.
Whether urban legend or reality, the Alpha feeds into the media craze, orchestrating a killing spree to stamp out all rivals. And when Avery’s tangled web of deception pulls her further into to Alpha’s sadistic game, there’s only one thing she fears more: losing Quinn. With just as many secrets to guard as the elusive crime lord, Avery’s time is running out to reveal the truth to Quinn, the stubborn, by-the-book detective bent on protecting her at all costs.
As a lead takes the ACPD task force deep into the bowels of a corrupt law firm, the discovery of a vast criminal network with far-reaching connections threatens to unmask many players. How deep does the corruption go? How far does the Alpha’s reach extend? While the team races to catch a killer, Detective Quinn is faced with an impossible choice. Will he betray the woman he’s fallen for, or seek his own vengeance outside of the law?
