Taming a Savage Gentleman by Tammy Andresen

I do enjoy the Taming the Heart series and this addition is another gem! When I read the synopsis of Taming a Savage Gentleman and realized that this was the story of Tom Maddox I was all in. I adore the Maddox family and was excited to see how the events play out! As this story plays on the background information from the previous books you will get more of […]

It follows Vicki as she heads off to Louisiana to spend a week on vacation with her best friend Janine at Janine’s grandmother’s estate. Too bad Janine’s brother, George, is also there.

Rain by India R Adams

I have read several books by India Adams. My first book was actually a novella called Blue Waters from the Tainted Waters series. That book was just amazingly written and it just tore my heart out in all the best ways! I loved it so much that I had added it to my favorites shelf at Goodreads. India and I were chatting on Twitter and she gifted me any book […]

Reckless Creed by Alex Kava

I really enjoyed the previous two books in this series, Ryder Creed. It made me very excited to get this book into my hands and see where things had gone with Ryder and his dogs. What I was not expecting was a thriller that brushes against a reality that is so terrifying. It is one of those situations that could be potentially happening now. I haven’t read a book that […]

The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston

Informative, fascinating and filled with adventure! This story can appeal to a wide range of readers. The start of this novel is historical. We learn about the history of early explorers and archeologists alike who set out on explorations to discover parts of Central and South America, specifically with a focus on pre-Colombian civilizations. For those interested in stories that have political elements you will find this story most enjoyable. […]

The Shattered Crown by J.W. Webb

This is the second book in the Legends of Ansu series but the story takes place one thousand years after then end of book one. This installment can be read as a standalone and I think that this is a great example of heroic fantasy! In case you are not familiar, a heroic fantasy is one in which the hero is reluctant to be a “champion” and is usually of […]

Terrific Tuesday Post from 09/13/2016 Now that I have more time to read what I want to; I am breaking out the Terrific Tuesdays books that I had previously bought. Yes, I actually buy all my Terrific Tuesday book posts, hmmm now getting time to read them is a bit more of a challenge. I have an entire bookshelf full of my TT books to read, just staring at me […]


Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson

Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson

What a hilarious novel! This is a fun and intriguing story set in a diverse universe. I love reading comic science fiction and I don’t mean comics, 😉 comic science fiction is a sub-genre of soft science fiction, it is also known as comedy science fiction. This story has much humor as well as extraterrestrial creatures, space travel, interstellar politics, assassinations, and romance. There is a great backstory on Diana […]


The Ugly Teapot by Fred Holmes

The Ugly Teapot by Fred Holmes

If you have read “Aladdin’s Wonderful Lamp” or “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” then you will enjoy this tale. It is not based upon those stories but rather is influenced by them and seems to beg the question “but what if it was real?” “What if the lamp survived time and what would be its purpose?” I needed to know what happened with Hannah after she rubbed the lamp […]

Terrific Tuesday: Pirate by Clive Cussler, Releasing September 13, 2016

I am a huge fan of Clive Cussler! This Terrific Tuesday posting is for one of his books that is releasing in one of my favorite series, Fargo Adventures. This series follows Sam and Remi Fargo who are a husband and wife treasure-hunting team. They travel all over the world finding lost treasure and unraveling mysteries. They also seem to run into trouble at every turn. It is a great series […]

The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman

While I was reading this book I found that there were elements reminiscent of a couple of books that I enjoyed or characters that I found memorable. For fans of the Shades of Magic Series you would appreciate the alternate realties of the same world, including the requirements to change their appearance of fashion due to the differences. For fans of The Great Library Series you would appreciate this book because […]


Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton

Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton

This is a new series from Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton that pairs an eccentric billionaire, Emerson Knight, with a rookie financial analyst, Riley Moon, together in a questionable investigation of missing gold. This investigation was a bit more of a heart pounding, run for your life type of investigation that would leave a few scratches, lead to some torture, and bring to light a scam hatched by a family […]


The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

This is another follow-up to a book that made my Terrific Tuesday’s postings. I received the book The Scam as an ARC when it was re-printed by a new publisher. Before then I will honestly say that I had never read a book from either Janet Evanovich or Lee Goldberg (but I had watched the Monk television series that he was a screenwriter on). I absolutely loved The Scam and […]

Gone Too Deep by Katie Ruggle

So to be honest, I wanted to read this book mostly because the synopsis sounded interesting but also partly due to the fact that the guy on the cover looks like “Elliot” from the television show Leverage and I loved that show. You can decide for yourself if you see the resemblance. Just look at this picture below and compare to the cover. Right?!             […]

The Lightning Stones by Jack Du Brul

In 1937 Amelia Earhart took possession of an unknown case with objects in it that were unclear in origin but she was told that the United States government needed them. Unbeknownst to her she has “lightning stones” and was unaware of any potential effects these stones would have on her equipment to her detriment. I think the twist on the mystery of Amelia Earhart is well done. The story opens […]

Did you know that books are routinely released on a Tuesday? That is why I created my Terrific Tuesday posts, so that I can let you all know what is coming out today that is on my radar for a must read! Shadow Rider is releasing today and I will admit that I have not read a Christine Feehan novel in awhile but this is a new series and I […]

Terrific Tuesday: The Emperor’s Revenge & The Pages of the Mind, Release Date May 31, 2016

For me this is a Terrific Tuesday! Why is today so exciting you ask?? For me, one of my favorite authors is releasing a book today, The Emperor’s Revenge, that happens to be part of a favorite series of mine. Who is this Author you ask? Why thank you for asking, it is none other than Clive Cussler. I have been a huge fan (seriously have every single book) of […]


Among Thieves by Douglas Hulick

Among Thieves by Douglas Hulick

This book has been listed as fast paced and action packed but I barely finished it. The main character Drothe is an anti-hero but he is portrayed in a way that he “walks” the line between good and bad. Make him good or make him evil, it detracts from the storyline and the over all book if we can’t decide if we like him or hate him. I usually have […]


Blackbeard’s Revenge by Jeremy McLean

Blackbeard’s Revenge by Jeremy McLean

We start out with Edward Thatch aka Blackbeard having been imprisoned for a year; a year in a dungeon without sun, the ocean or his love, Anne. As you can imagine things are a bit grim for Edward but then the tide turns. A jailbreak! Well written and devised this scene starts the book with the action you would expect from a rowdy crew of buccaneers and the action does […]
