Midnight ShowMidnight Show by Mira Day
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars


Oh be still my beating heart!! Ms Day you did a number on it and I thank you for that.


Jenny and Brandon were the best of friends ever since the day they met at 5 years old. They've experienced a lot of lifes firsts together.


Jenny loves Brandon and maybe not in the way he hopes. He loves her for always. Jenny is making great strides in life while Brandon is stagnant. He harbors a dark secret neither one seen coming or could ever prepare for.


This book was action packed from start to finish. I couldn't put it down. The ups and downs of Jenny and Brandon made my heart feel like it was on a rollercoaster. I would have never predicted the outcome of this story. Have your tissues ready for the big epic ending. You'll thank me.

Release Blitz! Midnight Show by Mira Day

Title: Midnight Show
Author: Mira Day
Genre: Suspense
Release Date: July 18, 2017
My Jenny. 
Best friends since we were five years old. She was there for me when I lost my mom. There for me when my dad used me as a punching bag. She was my rock and I needed her more than she ever knew. 
It's been so long since I've seen her. So long since I've held her hand and felt her heartbeat nearly in sync with my own. She came back for me; my rock, to help me bury the man who shaped who I've become.
But she didn't come alone. 
I was used to losing parents, but losing Jenny? To him? No. She's MY Jenny.
Michael pours me another glass of bourbon. Its burn is nothing compared to the tortured world inside my mind. 
"We'll make sure she never leaves us...ever again."
I nod my head as the room goes dark.
I can keep a secret.

Taming Mr. Flirt

Here’s a tip: never say never.
It all started in a barn, rolling around in the hay with a hot brunette. When I hooked up at my best friend’s wedding with the bride’s best friend, I had hay in places it should never be. And how my bowtie ended up around my dick was an entirely different story. I’ll give you a minute to consider the possibilities.
That first romp set the tone, and each sexual encounter with her that followed became more intense. The fact that all my fantastic orgasms were coming at the hand of one woman baffled me.
A lifetime of observation taught me that monogamy equated to boredom. Variety was the spice of life, in and out of the bedroom. I enjoyed the company of a sexy, smart, confident woman. It was my kryptonite. I was a master flirt, and my sexual skills were unrivaled.
Until her.
With this woman, I had met my match.
Her carnal appetite a perfect match for mine, and she also taught me a few things along the way.
She called me Mr. Flirt, and could bring me to my knees at every turn.
Lesson learned: Sex always trumps sanity.

Scoring Mr. Romeo

Here’s a tip: never underestimate romance.
Falling in love was the furthest thing from my mind. I’m a single mother raising a strong little boy, and he is my one and only priority.
The universe felt otherwise, sending me—actually, my son’s soccer ball—hurdling toward a stunningly handsome, perfect man, who said all the right things. He made it hard to ignore how much I missed romance.
In the past, when I met a man, they ran as soon as they heard I was a widow with a child. Not this guy. No, he fell in love with my son, and in turn my son fell in love with him. But, it was hard to believe he felt the same about me. My job was to be the strong one—to protect our hearts from sweet dreams that never lasted.
~~~
Women told me I was a master of romance. They were right. I knew how to sweep a woman off her feet, to make her feel special, and good in all the right places. I wasn’t a saint. I’ve had my share of one-night stands. They served their purpose, giving me a steady diet of romance without the hassle of commitment.
Then one day at the park, a soccer ball came careening toward my head, and my life changed in an instant. I never imagined that true love would come in the form of a five-year-old little boy. And then I got to know his mother: She was strong, independent, drop-dead gorgeous, and someone I desired - I just needed to prove it to her.
She called me Mr. Romeo, and that was fine with me.
Lesson learned: Love always trumps everything.

New Review! Dodging Trains by Sunniva Dee 5 Cranky Stars

Dodging TrainsDodging Trains by Sunniva Dee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

One thing I've learned about Sunniva Dee and her books is while they may seem all fun and fluffy on the outside underneath a very real problem is lurking. Dodging Trains wasn't any different while being a totally different book that I have never read. Make sense?



Paislee Cain has been friends with Keyon Arias since they were young. They have a mutual love of raspberry lollipops and a mutual hatred of bullies. Flash forward to Paislee as an adult and she's carrying some serious baggage. In their tiny town she has a not nice reputation but sadly it's how she copes with her life.



Keyon Arias has been bullied his whole life. Then one day he meets Paislee and they form a bond. She becomes a bright spot in his bleak life. One tragic day something changes in Keyons childhood and he's not the same. Now he's on the fast track to becoming an ultimate fighter. In the ring is where he exercises his demons and boy is that demon ugly.



Paislee and Keyon come back together as adults and this is their journey. At times I found myself saying darn it Paislee don't put your hoohah on that. Save it girl!! Keyon I wanted to hire a therapist and give him a giant hug. Plus come on he had Simon!



This book has a great group of side characters that make you fall in love with them. I also love how certain books in the Sunniva universe give you an unexpected visit from past characters in other books. Hey Victor!!! I think everyone should give this author a try rather its YA or NA she has something for everyone.

New Review Lux by Courtney Cole 5 Cranky Stars

Lux (The Nocte Trilogy, #3)Lux by Courtney Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars



Lux means light in Latin. I was hoping for the light at the end of the tunnel for this final installment in the Nocte Series. Calla, Finn and Dare needed some light!! Heck I needed some light.



The story of Calla, Finn and Dare come to a final head. The story that we all find out finally and if once and for all who is the crazy one here or is anyone crazy at all and this is truly their life. Who can be trusted and who is a pawn. This book answered so many questions yet left you staring into the void going no that can't be right.



While at times I became frustrated with the retelling of some of the story over the last several books I fully understand why it was done. It was done to mess with my perception as well and for that I give a big high five to you Courtney Cole. I would say read the reviews before starting this series very sparingly. It's meant to go into with an open mind. I would recommend this series to everyone!! If you enjoy a mind trip that will leave you reeling even at the end this is for you.

New Review! Underground Magic by Natasha Larry, 5 Cranky Stars

Underground Resistance (Underground Magic)Underground Resistance by N.R. Larry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



5 Cranky Stars

I was absolutely riveted from start to finish. I pretty much finished it in one night and immediately checked to see if the next one was available. Trust me. That is rare!
Alas, I have to wait until July 2017 for the follow up, but as soon as it arrives on my hot little kindle - I'll be devouring it.




Lawrence Kincaid used to be in the resistance fighting against the fascist, Eugenics based ruling Party with laws based on "racial purity" and anti supernatural. Camps, enslavement, kill orders - the Party has no compassion when it comes to those declared "impure". Lawrence is everything they hate: she's black and a powerful witch.



Five years ago, she walked away and hid with a small group of survivors in the magically protected Underground. Lawrence avoids the surface. She's suffered too many defeats there, but people she loves has been taken and she aims to get them back.



A chance meeting with a shifter, Ty, puts Lawrence on a collision course with not only the Party, but her self. Her element is a power that even she is afraid of, but in order to change the world, she might have to break it.



I highly recommend this story. I thoroughly enjoyed the parallels with history and also, current events. The characters were engaging and likeable. Some of the twists made me sit up and take notice.



I can't wait for the sequel and also, a pre-equal would be good too. *Hint, hint*.
