Review: Apocalypse Five

Apocalypse Five Apocalypse Five by Stacey Rourke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on http://bookaddict.live,
Wow what an amazing start to an imaginative series. As book one we are introduce to the world the Apocalypse five live in aboard a star ship thinking they are training to defend earth. The five spend all the time together, and ages starting at twelve or thirteen they are fighting battles of life and death.
Until they find out something they shouldn’t and everything they find is a lie and the apocalypse has already happened. I’m in awe at the imagination authors in this genre have. I thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to hopefully an absorbing series that I’m looking forward to. Where's book two?

Review: Cold & Deadly

Cold & Deadly Cold & Deadly by Toni Anderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf http://bookaddict.live,
I love Toni Anderson books, they have everything I love reading about. In this book we hit the jackpot, great characters, plenty of murders and above all a couple falling love.
This starts at a funeral of a well loved FBI agent who had either committed suicide or shot himself by accident. So under the circumstances the mourners are close friends and family. Suddenly shots are fired at the FBI agents attending. This starts an investigation that leads all over the county.
Dominic Sheridan is investigating with the help of Special Agent Ava Kanas.It always hard to write a review without giving much away especially a murder mystery. This book kept me gripped and I couldn’t put it down. It kept me guessing until the end and them I felt bereft when it was finished. So what I’m trying to say is this is a great read, and I loved the Ava and Dominic they are good together or should I say HOT together.
This is definitely going on my reread shelf.

Review: It Happens

It Happens It Happens by Lani Lynn Vale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
Another treat from Lani Lynn Vale in the bear bottom MC Series. This is an unusual story in some ways. Jubilee and Zee grew up together as their parents are best friends. Jubilee and Zee really clash and have all their lives. When they are a little older after being hit by lightening and their siblings are killed in the same strike leaving a whole they both still feel in their life.
Still avoiding each other, but both secretly looking out for each other. All is well until one of Zee’s ex enters the bar and being drunk Jubilee kisses Zee and the next morning they wake up in bed together. That is the start of another amazing relationship which LLV writes so well. One warning this book is HOT, as the sparks flying with this couple singed my hands as I was reading. I am really enjoying this series, which is fast becoming one of favourites. So that’s all I am writing about. The story is told in dual povs, and can be read as standalone.

Review: His Demand

His Demand His Demand by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on http://bookaddict.live,
My god Lisa has done it again, got me gripped and excited to be reading the story. Them suddenly it is the end. I knew it was a duet, but it was full of action in and outside the bedroom. This is Gabe Maxwell’s story and completely standalone, but we met some of characters from other books. We met Gabe plenty of times always as the laid back brother of the Maxwell clan, but always knowing there was something painful from his past, but his a good guy at heart.
Gabe has fallen Abbie real fast straight after Reid’s wedding. Abbie meets Gabe and they both know it’s more than a one night stand, they seemed to connect straight away.
This is told in duel pov’s so we follow both characters we how things develop. Lisa’s female leads are always strong in there own right. I felt much closer to Gabe after reading this book, maybe because I felt I knew him better. He is HOT and I couldn’t resist him. A gripping first book in the Filthier Duet. Now I’m waiting for Her Submission to find out what happens.

Review: Motion

Motion Motion by Penny Reid
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
Motion is the first in a the second trilogy in in the hypothesis series. This is The Law of Physics part one. As always with Penny Reid expect the unexpected. In this book we meet Mona a twin whose abilities with maths and physics has produced someone who has had very little time in her life for wasting time and having fun. Uptight is putting it mildly. Suddenly she receives a phone call from her twin who has been arrested, and needs Mona to go home and pretend to be Lisa. The good time sister who is with a rock star and is into drugs. So to keep her sister out of trouble with their parents Mona agrees.
Only one problem Mona has not got a clue how to behave like Lisa. To keep her out of trouble her brother’s best friend Abram is staying at the house to watch and keep her under control.
Well after a makeover and advice from Gabby, Lisa’s best friend Mona arrives at the house and meets Abram. Well Mona is tongue tied and tries her best. Well we all know what happens with the law of hormones, the more time they spend together the more they like each other. This is a Penny Reid romance keeping me addicted until the last page, and then I have to wait until March until I read more of Mona and Abram.
To find out what happens you have to read the book. Just a little warning this ends in a cliffhanger.

Review: Miss Not Together: A Novel

Miss Not Together: A Novel Miss Not Together: A Novel by Belle Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
This is a coming of age story about Hilary in her last term at high school, and a straight A student. Hilary and her best friend Freddie have their lives mapped out. Hilary is going to Prime Minister and Freddie her second in command.
This is a about teenage hormones hitting Hilary and finding out that there is something apart from schoolwork and planning her life.
It all started the day some new neighbors move in next door. A man with twin sons Grayson and Tray. From the first moment she saw Gray, Hilary couldn’t understand her feelings.
This is the story of a late bloomer finally breaking out of her uptight persona. Gray and Hilary gradually start seeing each other in secret hence miss not together instead of miss get it together.
This is an entertaining peek into Hilary’s first relationship and the usual high school angst not much in fact I thought everyone was very well behaved. I think it hits us all when the hormones and feelings get in the way of world domination. It was wilder in my day. This an entertaining peek into Hilary and Grayson both being hit with that thing called love.

Review: Sail

Sail Sail by Lindsey R. Loucks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on http://bookaddict.live,
This is the first book in one of the most imaginative series I’ve read for a while, featuring Absidy a twenty year old student waiting for her family to meet for christmas break. When she finds out that her older sister has gone missing she is determined to find even if she is in black space.
Dressed as a teenage boy called Lewis she ends up as a trainee chief on a small ship with a small crew. Nothing goes right as the ship is haunted and its Absidy sees ghosts. So the adventure starts and takes directions you in directions you can’t imagine. This is a step in the future that is haunting and frightening at times. When Absidy went on board she never imagined she would have deal with Monsters around every corner. The only good thing as far Absidy knows is that Mase knows her secret, and soon they start getting hot and heavy. I'm not giving anything else away, I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook, it kept glued to my headphones.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lindsey R. Loucks. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Review: Honey and Happiness

Honey and Happiness Honey and Happiness by Josie Kerr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
What sweet and quirky love story from Josie Kerr’s Hemlock Creek series. First thing is I haven’t read any of Josie’s books before, I feel in love with the book cover and description. We have an uptight middle aged man stuck in his ways being told to take vacation time. His office partner books him a holiday at a quant place in Hemlock Creek.
Everything that can wrong does go wrong. The place makes him realise how uptight and stuck in a rut he is.
It was so delightful to watch Bruce unwind the longer he is around Saffy who runs the B+ B and makes all her natural soaps and creams. I loved her pets if they didn’t put Bruce off , but it was so funny visualizing him fighting the goat for his trousers. An uplifting tale told from both pov’s that adds to the confusion for two people who find love when they least expect to find it.

Review: Car Crash

Car Crash Car Crash by T. Gephart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on http://bookaddict.live,
Wow this book was hilarious, we have Dallas, who is Josh’s friend and colleague from Train Wreck. Dallas works at the tattoo parlor with Josh, while Josh is now happy with Eve. Dallas has lost his wingman. Dallas is a larger than life hottie and is only ever up for a one night stand.
Then we have Kitty attractive and sexy and always pick the wrong men.
So Kitty and Dallas decide they would help each to keep away from the crazies. So for the first time they become friends, and get to know each other. The only problem is the chemistry is off the charts, so we know what’s going to happen, but it’s the getting there that is the fun.
I loved this book with it’s larger than life characters, with the story told in alternate pov’s it’s an easy and enjoyable experience. Now I’ve got to go and read Train Wreck and see how Josh founds his happy ending.

Review: Silver Hollow: 2018 Edition

Silver Hollow: 2018 Edition Silver Hollow: 2018 Edition by Jennifer Silverwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on http://bookaddict.live,
Wow what a saga I feel like have been caught in in a waking adventure. It starts with an ordinary young girl who looses her parents in a car crash at 16, but fortunately her best friend’s parents take her in. Northing happens until we meet the adult Jessamiene Nimue age 26 and an author of fantasy and magical kingdoms.
Then the adventure begins and what a wonderful one it was. We have a mixture myths and legends woven together to create a magical kingdom. This is not a pretty story we have war and betrayal everywhere but a gripping tale of a world we dream about and Aimie finally finds out who she is. I loved her grandfather I thought that was a clever touch. IF you enjoy a fantasy that brings to life all the people and world you will love to meet in this gripping tale. This is book one so there is lots world building, but there still plenty to keep you hooked . I have one more thing to say and that is “ where is book two?”

Review: Copper

Copper Copper by Lilly Atlas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on http://bookaddict.live,


Well this is the book I have been waiting for.
In the first three books in the series we all picked up the attraction between Shell and Copper, and it was everything I wanted and more.
This can be read as a standalone, but for more enjoyment it great to read the books in order.
The story is alternating points of view’s between Copper and Shelle.
Well this book has it all love, hot sex, hunky prez,
And some disturbing action, but I loved it .
I was pulled in at the beginning and couldn’t put it down.
This was a late nightery or an early morner read, as I really needed to finish. I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait for the Audio book. Lilly Atlas’s audiobooks are usually duet narration and this series has been great so far.
