Before He Was Gone, Starstruck 2, Becky Wicks

 

Before He Was Gone, Starstruck 2, Becky Wicks
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I loved Becky’s Before he was Famous so was really pleased to see this. Noah and Chloe make brief appearances, but its Chloe’s friend Alyssa who’s the main lead. She’s just been dumped by band member Sebastian, and looking at her life and dreams, trying to keep out of the media firestorm that’s descended, she applies for and is accepted on the TV programmer Deserted. That reminds me so much of a book I read when I first got my kindle Wicked Games Jill Myles which I just loved. Though they’re both game shows novels set on islands and follow the usual format of challenges and vote outs etc, they are two very different novels but I loved this one just as much. I also read another recently with same base but that was so-so, in fact I can’t even recall title or author…so its not that the format is a success, but the authors talent in using it to create a fabulous story.
I love Becky’s writing style, she made me laugh at times, and cry at others, and a book that can do that has to be a five star read for me. Becky makes them all feel so real, and their emotions come across really genuinely. There was a really disparate group of contestants, and  I felt as if I was on the island with them. Of course not everyone is what they seem and as we get to know them better opinions change from those first gut feelings about them. Special star for me was Shan, he was great with his GAYfronts and his over the top camp style. He was so cheery, and really kept spirits up – he provided lots of the laughs. I loved the connection between Alyssa and Joshua, and it was clear from very early that he was hiding something but what? And I did not expect it was that…and was surprised too at who ultimately won. I kept making up scenarios where different contestants could win, but didn’t guess what actually happened. The challenges too were excellent especially given some of the fears people had. Overall its a well balanced, easy to read story and a beautiful moving romance.
Stars: One again Becky gets a five from me

Betting on Julia, (Melville Sisters 2), Nina Croft

Betting on Julia (A Melville Sisters Novel) (Entangled Covet)

 

Betting on Julia, (Melville Sisters 2),  Nina Croft
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
So after the first book, with Daniel and Lissa we’ve moved on to Daniel’s sister Julia. She’s struggling to cope as a werewolf, having been changed against her will. She’s dealing by pretending its just a once a month anomaly. It means though that currently she’s unable to have a relationship, as she’s scared of what she might do. Then her new neighbour moves in and it’s insta-lust when they touch….She’s avoided everything werewolf so far, and he seems as normal as they come, a hot and sexy accountant, and maybe just what she needs she thinks. Accountants are normal people – aren’t they? Well, what she doesn’t know is Sebastian is far from normal, but he can’t tell her that, and that he needs her to fall in love with him so he can finally be rid of the demon taking up space inside him for the last 200 years. He just wanted to get her to say the magic words I love you, and then leave. He didn’t see any problems in that, except getting her to fall in love, but he was reasonably confident in his abilities there, and desperately wanted to be free again. So what if its a little mean to her, she’ll be OK, she’ll move on once he’s gone. What he didn’t plan on was falling for Julia.
Julia was fun, bubbly, loyal to her friends and family and working hard at keeping control over her life. I loved her FMS attempt to minimise the werewolf place in her life – FMS = full moon syndrome  Of course ignoring something simply won’t work, and her wolf has started making her presence known at other times..
Sebastian I loved, he’s had a traumatic experience with werewolves when his wife was killed by them several hundred years ago, and has a total hatred of them. He doesn’t know that Julia is one though, and of course it’s not the kind of thing one says to a new boyfriend, so they both go forward into a fledgling relationship withholding huge secrets. It doesn’t take long before both are deeply in love, but conscious of the secrets they hold, and the impact they think that would have. The Demon inside Sebastian isn’t giving up easily either, plus snippets of Sebastian’s other life keep creeping in and muddying up the waters. There’s humour mixed in the the dangers here, and what I enjoyed is the way the story unfolded, with more drama and dangers confusing the issues.
If you enjoy a simple, easy to read paranormal this is for you – its a fun read, some dangers, some spicy sex and a happy ending – I do need those! Its not deep, dark edge of seat drama but a lighter feel.
Stars: Four, a fun, easy to read  paranormal.

Own, (Command Force Alpha), Katie Porter
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I do enjoy a romance with something extra to lift it – in this case there was the subtle BDSM angle, the need for control Evan had allied to the need to be controlled that Kat had, even though she wasn’t fully aware of it. She’d made some tentative enquiries in that direction in the past, but been put off by what she’d learned. Evan wasn’t professional but he knew what worked for him, and was able to translate that into what Kat needed.
Kat ( Katsu) – was a lovely lead. Part Japanese, multi – lingual and fiercely independent. She loves her father, has always accepted his career came first though and has very loving memories of her mother who died when she was young. She’s done a bit more sneaking into her father’s career that he knows though, not realising just how dangerous that can be given who and what his his work involves. She loved Evan, even though they only has a six week relationship before he left her four years ago, dropping her like a hot brick to work for her father. Now he’s second in command, and back with orders to look after Kat til the current crisis which threatens her is over.
At first they are very edgy, Kat is still full of resentment at the way he left, while Evan doesn’t really understand why. He thinks he did what was best, leaving that way, not realising that with the loss of her mother, and with her father being away so much Kat needed more from him. But hell, he’s a bloke Winking smile thinking isn’t always their strong point! Now he’s back, and the attraction between them is as strong as ever. Forced into 24 hrs. a day contact he can see what she needs, someone to take control and it pulls at his instincts to protect through order and discipline. Soon they’re into some heavy and sensual sex, with a kind of D/s feel to it, although it’s only fringe effect, careful orders, gentle punishment. What will happen once life is back to normal though? Will Kat be left distraught as she was before, will Evan just go ahead and do what he thinks is right without talking to her again? Even if they could reveal their secret relationship this time and move forward how will Kat cope knowing his life is in constant danger. She’s borne that burden with her dad all her life, and its affected her badly emotionally, could she cope with another person she loves facing death daily? Along with their relationship puzzle there’s the physical danger to them both via her dads organisations enemies, with her dad still very ill in hospital, and the people who shot him still at large. Its looking like what they’d tackled was a larger danger than expected, and it’s always possible that there’s a leak in the organisation….no-one is quite sure of what’s going on, not least me, as there were so many twists and turns in who was what, and where they fitted in to the puzzle!
I loved Evan’s strong attitude, the take charge Alpha male bit of him, and yet was so frustrated at the same attitude that couldn’t let him see just how badly he’s damaged Kat by leaving as he did. Her dad was terrific, and I loved the way she told him she was 22 now and should be allowed to make her own decisions about who was in her life. I couldn’t see a compromise for her and Evan, she had coped, but barely, with knowing her dad could be killed at any time and yet knew because of the secrecy needed in his work she may never know any details, or even if he was dead or just labelled as MIA. How could she accept someone else she loved being in that position, and yet how could she not be with Evan, their pull was so strong. Evan – even if he offered to leave his work for her she knew eventually he’s regret it, it was so important to him, and she didn’t want him to feel she had made him leave something he needed to do.It seems like a catch 22 situation and yet…was there a way through? I couldn’t see one but Evan had some really good ideas, and I loved the way that part played out, the way it was explained made so much sense to me, and I could see how it would work – if Kat would let it, but would she?

Its a complete novel, a stand-alone one,  which after all the part books and trilogies is great to read.
Stars: Four, a solid and sensual suspense novel.

Excerpt

One day he’d find peace here.

Peace…

Like the kind he’d found, so briefly, when Katsu had knelt before him. When she’d bowed her head. When she’d obeyed his commands — not just to the letter, but with such alm, orderly precision. Watching had been hypnotic…and so sexy that had she defied him, stood up and stripped naked, he wouldn’t haven turn on. Sure. Of course he would’ve. But he also would’ve been disappointed. He admired her strength, lived with equal parts admiration and frustration when it came to her stubborn streak, and knew she was one of the whip-crack smartest people he’d ever met. To have that strength humbled was not about bringing her down, but about giving them both a moment of tranquility.

Control and obedience.

Dominance and submission.

A Curse Awakened: A Weird Girls Novella, Cecy Robson

 

A Curse Awakened: A Weird Girls Novella, Cecy Robson
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
Having just requested the latest book in this series while not having read the earlier ones, this was a really useful book. At 49p for 94 pages its excellent value too. It introduces us to the four sisters and how they gained their unique abilities, while still giving us an exciting and engrossing story. We also get to know the girls personality types too,not just their special abilities,  and see how close they are to each other. They’ve learned to rely on themselves, having been scorned and ridiculed by peers at school, and cast out by their parent’s family so have become very close knit as a result. Danny, their long time friend who is still close to Celia, needs their help and they discover in order to rescue his father from the vampires they need to know more about their origins. Luckily Danny is a scholarly type and used to research, so with his help they end up back at their roots – and straight into some real dangers. Throw in Danny’s fathers capture and its a short but fully packed read.
Its a great introduction to this world and I certainly want to read more from this author.
Stars: five, great escape from reality.

Escape, Part One, Sydney Holmes

 

Escape, Part One, Sydney Holmes
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I enjoyed this read but found the mystery behind it – who was Rowan really, and what was she running from, what was she hiding, really frustrating. To be honest I like  some mystery but this was a bit too in the dark. I really needed a bit more information. It was difficult to empathise with her, to understand what was going on when half the people we heard about via telephone, conversations or Rowan’s inner thoughts are still a mystery even at the end of the book.
I loved Shane, and his colleagues, and the way he felt for Rowan right from the start – and when they got together that was seriously hot…yet as a P.I. wouldn’t he have looked up some of the mystery about her – even if he just told himslef it was to help protect Rowan, as its clear she’s worried about something or someone?
There was a lot I found problematic – Rowen is only 31 and yet her son is 18? And he’s an expert at housebreaking, self defence, guns etc at that young age….so good that even the very expericened P.I.s are in awe of his talents..I really needed more on how this all happened, as it was it just felt too fictional and unreal, and for me I need to feel the people and the situations are or could be real.
At the end of the ARC the author notes state that books two and three will be out in August. Its 23rd Aug as I write this and though part two is out I can’t find any reference yet to part three. Hopefully its in the works, I hate to wait long between parts of a book. That brings me to my next point. This book is 144 pages, book two is 124 pages, and I’d prefer it all to be one book, rather than three!! I’ve noticed this happening a lot – books being released in sections and I’m sure there are those that love it – just not me! Partly because I’ve read so many part books where authors have never completed the series, and that’s really frustrating.
Stars: Its difficult, I think if I had the whole series as one it would be a four to five star, but as it is it feels so unfinished and I’ve so many unanswered questions that its a three from me. Good but not great.

Flight From Hell, Yasmine Galenorn

Flight from Hell (An Otherworld Novella)

 

Flight From Hell, Yasmine Galenorn
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

I took a real gamble with this novella. I knew it was part of an existing series, none of which I’d read but….didn’t realise it was book 15.5!! Ah well, a challenge

So, I plunged straight into a complex world where there were demi gods, sorcerers, vampires, dragons shifters of every colour and people that were more than one thing….thankfully in the main paranormal authors stick to a few standards for each type of creature such as the vampires v stakes and fire. That makes it easier to follow the story, as did the brief explanation of how Shimmer came to be outcast from the paranormal Other-world down to the human one. She’s been stripped of many of her powers and is working under the guidance of Vampire Alex who’s a friend of the Dragon Overlord. Shimmer though has been acting strangely and her new boyfriend is concerned. His friends talk to her employer Alex and find out she’d been odd there too…and done something that would break her probation and get her sentenced to death!
I really enjoyed this, found the story easy to follow despite not knowing the characters…It’s a novella but at 126 pages had enough length to make a complete and realistic ( within fantasy bounds of course!) read. I love the mix of different creatures, enjoyed the snippyness of Menolly, and found Alex a potentially very interesting character. He’s the age on him to have accrued lots of secrets, and he’s not a toe the line, always play by the rules person. My favourite sort! Its a solid story too, with real danger, and showcasing the talents some of the people have perfectly. Its where having lots of different types comes in well, the author can really go to town on the adventure side and let rip into all sorts of dangers, knowing someone had the skills needed to get them out – its a matter of fitting the danger and outcomes together realistically while entertaining the reader. This book did all that and I’m keen to read more from the Otherworld series.  I don’t know how I’ve missed such an interesting and unusual author.
Stars: four, a perfect quick story to take the reader out of the real world for a brief time.

The Cage King, A Novella of the Entwined Realms, Danielle Monsch

 

The Cage King, A Novella of the Entwined Realms, Danielle Monsch
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

So, second ( or perhaps 1.5) book in the series. I’ve not read book one though from sample and reviews I’m not sure how they connect, and I don’t think that affected how I felt about this novel.
Its a strange book, full of magic and mysterious characters, people who are not what or who they seem, the usual rich, murderous bullies and a search to retrieve a missing magical ring that could prove disastrous for the world. Lots to pack in to 142 pages, and perhaps that’s part of my problem. I felt there was lots going on, but there wasn’t really enough info or time spent with the leading characters for me to take to them. Nalah seemed to still be blaming Esh for the tragedy of five years past…and yet he was her lover and her brothers best friend. They’d all been friends since they were very young, and helped each other survive a very harsh existence on the streets. So to have just left him as she did – well, I could see why he wasn’t happy about it. The story of the cage fights, and the man running them, didn’t seem to marry up properly for me with the magical side of events. I wasn’t sure why he’d raided the Guild and stolen such precious items – or how he managed to do it being un-magical himself, and ( you’d think) the Guild would have them well protected.
Given the Tour with the fights was kept very secret and Esh had refused to join up til now, it seemed to me Nalah was naive not to consider the danger to Esh life. For all that she professed she was going to hold out against him and his attraction that didn’t last long ( but did give some searingly sensual moments). To be honest I wasn’t sure where the focus was here – the fights and the lust for blood and power, or the Magic and the power that comes from obtaining certain artefacts. I’m not keen either on danger being overcome by unknown and last minute interactions…but that’s me Winking smile
Stars: 2.5. there were parts I liked but overall it just felt too muddled for me.

Takeover

 

Takeover, Anna Zabo
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

So, Michael is on holiday and meets Sam, who’s on a night’s stop-over at the resort. They have a torrid, one night fling and go their separate ways. It was intense and earth shattering for them both, but they knew it was unlikely they’d ever meet again. Then the nightmare begins, and Michael finds the new CEO of the company he works for is none other than Sam…that’s everyone’s worst dream. Not only are workplace relationships frowned on, especially when there is disparity in positions, but being gay is tough and Sam is deep in the closet. Michael is out and makes no secret of it, but its been tough for him. He’s has one failed relationship where he gave his all to  a man who was not out, and he won’t be anyone’s dirty secret again. Seems though that they can’t stay away from each other.
Bigotry is awful, and sadly it abounds still and being Gay in a world full of business Suits is one where promotions for gay people rarely take place. Nothing outward is said when its one of the senior men who is gay, but there are insidious ways of ensuring they don’t reach full potential, and Sam has worked hard to get where he is now. Will he risk that for love or not. will Michael accept a closet gay once again? I’ve found similar issues re discrimination being disabled, and I’m sure all who are in any kind of minority group could tell a similar story. Alongside that issue are the business ones of double dealing, blackmail, and the problems where Michael, as one of the original three founders, was caught out by friends he trusted and lost his partnership status…there are lots of barriers before they can find happiness, and sometimes life is risky and people not willing to take it.
I enjoyed this, the heat between Sam and Michael was obvious. I really liked both characters and felt for them. I understood why Michael didn’t want a secret relationship – why should love be hidden? Then again, when its holding back a career that you love there’s a lot to lose.  I had a bit of difficulty over the business side of the story where someone major seemed to be double dealing… a bit of that just flew over my head, but it didn’t detract from the overall romance and story. As I’ve said before I need a good story too, not just sex scenes and got it here.  I did feel the “break up/drama/separation” part usually found in this sort of novel wasn’t really strong enough for me, there was plenty of potential with all the problems they faced, but somehow they seemed to get over them a bit too easily. I need my characters to suffer!!
Stars: Four – a good read, well balanced.

No In Between, Lisa Renee Jones

No In Between (Inside Out Series)

 

No In Between, Lisa Renee Jones
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I really love Lisa’s writing but….once again what started as a trilogy has morphed into a series. In this case several full length novels, plus more bite size novellas. As a reader that makes me a bit cross, I like to know at the outset what reading the whole story is likely to cost me, and when this happens it means its many more ££ or $$ than expected. In this case I’d have thought around £15 when it was a trilogy, but now its going to be more than double that with all the novellas and extra books. Sometimes there just isn’t the money to afford that. In a conventional series – of which my fantasy/paranormal love has plenty – there’s usually an overarching storyline, and each novel has a smaller but connected complete section or story.  It sometimes slides over into the next book, but more usually it’s only the overall story that carries through. That leaves reader with an ending and not feeling they’ve to wait ages for the next instalment. Here though we’ve still not got to the bottom of Rebecca’s disappearance, even though this is book four. The story itself has expanded so much from the romantic/erotic/suspense novel it seemed to start as, into one with multiple characters and storylines. There are more characters that have disappeared, links to mafia types, possible murders and murder attempts, BDSM clubs and characters associated with them and the lifestyle, art fraud, emotional dramas going from major illness to romantic complications, and of course Mark and his…peculiarities – I still can’t work him out, then Chris and Sara and their relationship and background problems, the mysterious Ryan and artist Ricco, who both seem to be taking a stronger storylines. If you haven’t read at least some, preferably all the previous novels you’ve no hope of keeping up.
Then again I’m torn as Lisa’s writing is so gripping, she’s so good at wringing the maximum drama and emotion out of every situation that its a fantastic story. I just hate not knowing how long it’s going to be, and that from a trilogy its turned into many, many more books. This instalment is focussed mainly on Chris and Sara and the murder attempts. Ava is trying for bail, the police seem to be treating Sara as a suspect, Mark is being his usual enigmatic self, and stressed out by his mothers illness…throw in a few other side stories and its another packed read. I did get a little tired of listening to Sara’s endless inner musings about past events, and the “this beautiful man” thoughts…somehow that just gets tiresome. It’s been equally annoying in other books in this genre, when its keeps on popping up constantly.
Overall its a great read, and solidly written. There’s been so much going on that when Michael was first mentioned I couldn’t recall who he was, but it was made clear shortly after thankfully,  and then I remembered that storyline. Its what I mean about so many different threads it’s easy to lose track. It would be interesting to go back and re read to see what nuances I’ve missed such as Ava, and how she was so friendly to Sara to begin, now I know more about her I’d view that differently!
Its been a great journey but I really hope its going to wrap up soon, as its getting frustrating waiting to find out about the missing people and how the story ends.
Stars: Four and a half. Sara’s thoughts just took up too much space for me, and back tracking to recall who did what lost the half star from a five.

Book Information

Title: Taking Control
Author: Jen Frederick
Release Date: September 8, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Cover: Attached
Teaser Graphics: Attached

Summary

The hotly anticipated sequel to Losing Control.

I thought I needed only one thing in my life–the money and power to crush one man. But the moment I laid eyes on Victoria Corielli, my thirst for revenge was replaced by my craving for her.

No rule would keep me away; no obstacle too large to overcome. Not her will, not our differing social positions, not my infamous past. When she lost everything, I helped her pick up the pieces. When she trusted me with everything, she sealed her fate.

I’ve convinced Victoria she can put her heart in my hands. Now I have to protect it–from her shady stepfather and my business rivals, from enemies known and hidden. I’ll do anything to keep her. And I might have to prove it, because now Victoria’s risking more than her heart to be with me; she’s risking her life.

Excerpt

I want us to get married. Soon. Do you want a big wedding?”

“Married? I mean, I guess I thought you were serious but I figured…I don’t know.” Her voice trails off.

“That my proposal of marriage was somehow insincere? I’ve never wanted anything more. I just didn’t want to pressure you because of all the emotional upheaval you’re experiencing now.” Rolling over so she can see me and judge the sincerity for herself, I declare, “I want you to be my wife. The mother of any children we have. My partner in life. I want that to happen now so that I can introduce you as Mrs. Ian Kerr.”

Her eyes close for a moment and beneath the lids, silent tears leak out. Her words, though, are classic. “Maybe you should take my name. You can be Ian Corielli and I’ll introduce you as Mr. Victoria Corielli.”

“As long as it means you’re mine in the eyes of the world, I’ll be Mr. John Smith.”

She wraps her arms around my neck and clings to me. This time the shudders I’m soothing are from maybe, possibly, hopefully joy for our future. “I’m okay with Victoria Kerr,” she chokes out. “You better give me a big rock and lots of flowers since you’re proposing to me while we’re naked.”

“I proposed to you when I first took you to the house on the Long Island Sound.”

“You didn’t propose. You said that you wanted me to be your wife and fill your big house with lots of little people.”

“That’s a proposal.”

“It was a demand.”

“It was a request couched as a demand.”

Her body is shaking with laughter. “You’ve been in charge for too long. That was no request.”

Pushing to my knees, I reach into the nightstand and retrieve the box I bought before Sophie died. Her eyes grow huge and her hands come up to the cover her mouth. I flip the box lid open, pluck the ring out and toss it aside.

Lifting her shaking hand in mine, I slide the ring down her finger.

“When I was fifteen I made a hundred different stupid vows. I’d avenge my mother. I’d rise to the top of Wall Street and smite everyone down. I’d crush Richard Howe beneath the sole of my boot. I’d win at everything. But I never wished for happiness because I didn’t know what it was until you came into my life. How could I want something I didn’t know was missing? Now, everything I’ve achieved pales in comparison to having you love me. When I say that you’re my heart, my everything, those aren’t just words. They are the only truth in my world. I’d give up money, revenge, success, as long as I could lie down next to you at night and wake up with your face beside mine.

There is no greater achievement in my life than having you fall in love with me and I recognize on some mysterious level that is pure luck. I need you to marry me and be my wife. I need you to be the mother of my children. I need you because without you I am nothing. I am a pile of bones and flesh filled with misery. You bring me to life. Love me, marry me, be with me in this life and into all the ones we live from this point ever after.”

“Well, since you put it like that, I guess I must.” She rises and kisses me. Our mouths sealing the promises we’ve made to another one another.

I make love to her again then, slowly. We barely move. I just slide in and we rock together and allow the strength of our emotions to carry us into the heaven.
