New Release |Brutal Curse | Casey L Bond

brutal curse rdb tour banner (2)Happy Release Day Casey L. Bond.

Brutal Curse is a Young Adult Fairy Tale retelling of Alice in Wonderland.  And doesn’t it have the most stunning cover???

About The Book

Brutal Curse EbookPrince Carden of Tierney lost his home, family, and claim to the throne in one fell swoop when he rebelled against his father for a cause he knew was right. Instead of wallowing in despair, he embarks on a new journey, starting a new life on the Southern Isle. When he finds himself caught in a web woven by the famously ruthless fae queen, Coeur, he insults her and she vows to teach him the most difficult and heart-breaking lesson he will ever learn: that humans are incapable of love, and that hearts are beastly things.

Arabella wasn’t really living, she was existing and surviving as best she could. A chance encounter with Carden changes everything for her, but the deadly game he’s dragged her into might cost her life.

Still, she agrees to play. The rules the fae queen gives them are vague, and it’s obvious there are things Queen Coeur isn’t telling them. She’s sure of it. But what she does know is that together, she and Carden must pass a series of tests and trials. If they fail, game over. But if they succeed, she just might be able to restore her family and carve out the life she’s always envisioned.

New Release | He Loves You Not | Tara Brown

He Loves You Not RDB TOUR BannerHappy Release Day Tara Brown.  Her new romantic comedy He Love You Not, the 2nd book in her Serendipity series, is now available.

About The Book

How can a fidelity test possibly go wrong? In this sweet and sexy romance, international bestselling author Tara Brown counts the ways…

IMG_2180Among her superrich friends, Lacey Winters never minded being the “poor one.” That is, until her tuition money and big dreams vanish overnight. Now Lacey has a plan to make some extra cash—a devilishly brilliant plan. For a fee, she’ll test your boyfriend to find out if he’s faithful or a cheating jerk. Her next target: a slick and sexy trust-fund playboy. Unfortunately for Lacey, his charms aren’t just legend. And before she knows it, she’s under his spell.

It was bad enough that Jordan Somersby’s father forced a spoiled “society princess” on him. Then Jordan had to go and find his dream girl—the beautiful, fun, and down-to-earth Lacey. And he’ll do anything to prove he’s sincere. But pretty soon it’ll be Lacey’s turn to prove that this is not just a game.

Because, when it comes to mixing love and deception, nothing is what it seems. And Lacey and Jordan are about to face the ultimate test.

About The Author

I believe growing up in a really small town gives a person a little advantage when it comes to the imagination. You need one or you go mad.Tara Brown

Needless to say, mine saved me. After it got me into trouble first, that is. That’s the problem with a vivid imagination, all the lies you tell.

 I am happily married with two daughters. I have two giant dogs, two savage cats, and a penchant for a glass of red. Also, I drag my bread through the sauce. I can’t help myself, bread is life. According to my age, I am meant to be a responsible adult, but it isn’t going well at all. I would still head off to Hogwarts tomorrow and I suspect there isn’t a single wardrobe I haven’t crept into, hoping to find the door to Narnia. And don’t even get me started on the King’s Road, I get lost.

 Fortunately, I am an international bestseller so I have wormed my way into a quirky or eccentric category.

 Thank God for that.

Review | Katerina | James Frey

About The Book

A kiss, a touch. A smile and a beating heart. Love 38511216and sex and dreams, art and drugs and the madness of youth. Betrayal and heartbreak, regret and pain, the melancholy of age. Katerina, the explosive new novel by America’s most controversial writer, is a sweeping love story alternating between 1992 Paris and Los Angeles in 2018.

At its center are a young writer and a young model on the verge of fame, both reckless, impulsive, addicted, and deeply in love. Twenty-five years later, the writer is rich, famous, and numb, and he wants to drive his car into a tree, when he receives an anonymous message that draws him back to the life, and possibly the love, he abandoned years prior. Written in the same percussive, propulsive, dazzling, breathtaking style as A Million Little Pieces, Katerina echoes and complements that most controversial of memoirs, and plays with the same issues of fiction and reality that created, nearly destroyed, and then recreated James Frey in the American imagination

My Thoughts

I was given an ARC copy of Katerina for my honest opinion and review.

I have read many titles by James Frey over the years and love his style of writing. I have always devoured his work.

Katerina was different from his past works.  It is a love story set in both the past and present going back and forth between Paris 1992 and Los Angeles2017.

While the book reads more like poetry, similar to a Million Little Pieces, I found it difficult to follow or to stay engaged.  The lack of punctuation actually takes away from the storyline and is very off putting. I almost didn’t finish.

So go in with eyes wide open especially if you are a fan of James Frey’s previous writings.

Overall I give Katerina 3 stars.

I feel that he had so much more to give and didn’t quite make it to the finish line.

Review | The Last Valkyrie | Karina Espinosa

THE LAST VALKYRIE RDB TOUR BANNER

About the Book

Raven Romero is a washed up Valkyrie who is unable to return to Valhalla, spending her days in a haze of sex, drugs, and alcohol.The last Valkyrie_1

When she is wrongfully accused of murder, Raven has two options: run or clear her name. With a laundry list of enemies, she has no idea who could be framing her. One thing is for sure: they know what she is and they’ll stop at nothing until she’s behind bars or dead.

With no choice but to delve into the supernatural underground she tried so hard to avoid, Raven seeks aid and learns what it means to be human.

The world believes her kind no longer exists, but Raven Romero is The Last Valkyrie

My Thoughts

I was provided an ARC of The Last Valkyrie from Lady Amber’s PR for my honest thoughts.

This is was my very first read from Karina Espinosa and it has left me wondering, “Where the hell have you been all my life!” She’s a reader’s dream UF writer.

The Last Valkyrie is a fast paced, well plotted read. The female lead, Raven, is fierce, strong and independent. The book is full of twists and turns that made it very hard for me to put it down. Add in some Norse Mythology and the foreshadowing of a love triangle and you’ve one of the best first books in a series that I have read in ages.

I knew after 25% of the book that I would be giving The Last Valkyrie 5 stars, but I enjoyed it so much, I’m throwing in a glass of whiskey too.

If you are a fan of the UF genre, you do not want to miss out on reading The Last Valkyrie. I’m already on the lookout for book 2.
