Review: You’ve Got Fail

 

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

She’s driving me crazy. Or am I the one driving myself crazy? I can’t tell anymore. Ever since Scarlet Rocket showed up in the flesh, she’s turned my structured world upside down. My neatly ordered life, my hand-painted Aliens versus Vampires figurines, my expertly curated comics collection—none of these things provide any shelter from her sexy, sassy onslaught. It’s a disaster of my own making. She didn’t exist until I created her. Now, I can’t get her out of my mind, and all I want to do is get her into my bed. Never mind that she’s a thief, a liar, a con-woman. Every step she takes leaves chaos in her wake. And damn if I don’t want more of it.

Note: This is a full-length romantic comedy that will have you guffawing, or at least snorting hard.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

You’ve Got Fail by Celia Aaron has the super funny, super hot, super fun factors down completely. I couldn’t get enough of the these exciting scenes and characters. Their flaws are what make them so irresistible. A nerd who has a degree in English Lit, is buffer than most jocks, and has a heart of gold is a keeper. Plus, his own blog writing is hilarious. That is Willis. And he has an issue. Everyone thinks he’s a woman due to his blogger name Scarlet Rocket. But that’s not his only growing problem…a woman con takes his name and everything Willis built into a career could go down if he doesn’t catch her soon…

Who knew that men who play with action figures and love fantasy movies could be so freaking hot? Daphne aka Scarlet Rocket was surprised with Willis. Willis being the real Scarlet Rocket blogger. However, once Daphne realizes what kind of mark Willis is, she can’t sop using his name…and if that fates have it, neither will her PR manager.

Willis is beyond furious that the woman stealing his glory is a beautiful redhead. He happens to be a sucker for redheads…and that isn’t helping his case in stopping her. Then, he finds out she’s a thief and wants nothing more from her. That was until his PR manager uses the fake Scarlet Rocket woman to work as a clutch for Willis. Willis new problems will be controlling his lust towards the beautiful thief, keeping his relationship completely professional, and watching her to make sure no trouble comes…

Yet, life is full of surprises and the more time they spend together the more their instant chemistry sparks out of control…

You’ve Got Fail is by far the best romantic comedy I’ve come across as a reader. This, hit the spot perfectly. Sexy as hell, fun, and one that pulls me into its pages. Wow! Hot geeky nerd and a gorgeous redhead thief kept me turning the pages. Absolutely , a must have for all TBR piles! I highly recommend it to all.

Review:

Diamonds Are Not A Girl’s Best Friend by Peggy A. Edelheit is a great novella. Full of mystery, suspense, and humor. The style of writing is similar to Janet Evanovich’s but better. The protagonist, a woman sleuth, is a joy to follow. This is the eleventh book in this writer’s series. I couldn’t believe that I haven’t read a book of hers until now. The has a cozy mystery vibe. Here, there’s a conspiracy investigation going on…and it’s up the to the main character to solve the case. A fun steady-pace that in entertaining from beginning to end. Like all cozy mysteries, readers will find murder and theft involved. This particular case was interesting in that the stolen object was a cane. And that there’s a cane club. Intriguing with plenty of twists to keep readers guessing along. Diamonds Are Not A Girl’s Best Friend is definitely one that I recommend to readers.

Wherever these two go, there’s always a murder investigation around the corner. This time, Nicky and Noah are heading on their honeymoon. Both choose Hawaii as their destination. Not only does murder follow them where they go, but there’s always an opportunity for them to perform a show. 

Joe Cosentino’s has once again, brought all of his usual talents with him. Drama Luau is his newest piece to the Nicky and Noah mysteries. A novel that speaks out for the LGBT community. I love reading Joe Cosentino’s work. He always incorporates major themes into his tales. Each theme brings out a real life issue that readers everywhere can relate to immediately. As with his previous novels, this one was just as exciting. Humor filled the pages. Readers will have found adventure, mystery, and romance with every page. Nicky and Noah are my favorite gay couple. Something about them just lures me further into their story. Funny, clever, and sweet. One teaches fitness the other teaches drama. Their roles as detectives isn’t lost on their friends nor family. I can’t find anything not to love about this series. Especially, Drama Luau. This read had me laughing and falling in love…I was hooked instantly. Overall, I highly recommend Drama Luau to all. 

Review: RJ (The Age of Innocence)



Synopsis

After the loss of his mother, innocent and reclusive Roger must learn to move on, but to him, that is like having faith that the stars will ever find him the perfect girl. Certainly, that girl can’t be Jessica, the shallow and venomous daughter, of the woman his father has started dating. His unwilling affection for this girl, however, tells him otherwise.

Fate has its own plan in store.

The pair’s unexpected and tragic trip to Verona, Italy puts them on the doorsteps of Romeo and Juliet and inadvertently becomes the catalyst to bind these two together throughout eternity. 

Only experience can change his hardened heart.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

RJ the Age of Innocence by Tim Soeder is a stunning young adult romance. A contemporary piece featuring loss, new beginnings, and an unexpected romance. The loss of a mother and wife forces a father to move his son to a new place. But Roger just isn’t feeling at home. Then, enters Jessica. Once Roger meets her their lives change. Jessica might become his sister. But fate has other plans. Jessica is popular unlike Roger, aka RJ. Jessica’s attitude is crazy. I would label her as the queen bee. As the story develops readers will see why. Yet despite her attitude issues, RJ is finding it hard to forget about her. She’s taking up his thoughts…Tim Soeder has created a novel where I can easily lose myself within it. I felt like I was watching a movie versus reading a book. Vivid, engaging, and funny. Overall, I recommend RJ the Age of Innocence to all. 

Review: Shylock is My Name


Synopsis:

Man Booker Prize-winner Howard Jacobson brings his singular brilliance to this modern re-imagining of one of Shakespeare’s most unforgettable characters: Shylock

 Winter, a cemetery, Shylock. In this provocative and profound interpretation of “The Merchant of Venice,” Shylock is juxtaposed against his present-day counterpart in the character of art dealer and conflicted father Simon Strulovitch. With characteristic irony, Jacobson presents Shylock as a man of incisive wit and passion, concerned still with questions of identity, parenthood, anti-Semitism and revenge. While Strulovich struggles to reconcile himself to his daughter Beatrice’s “betrayal” of her family and heritage – as she is carried away by the excitement of Manchester high society, and into the arms of a footballer notorious for giving a Nazi salute on the field – Shylock alternates grief for his beloved wife with rage against his own daughter’s rejection of her Jewish upbringing. Culminating in a shocking twist on Shylock’s demand for the infamous pound of flesh, Jacobson’s insightful retelling examines contemporary, acutely relevant questions of Jewish identity while maintaining a poignant sympathy for its characters and a genuine spiritual kinship with its antecedent—a drama which Jacobson himself considers to be “the most troubling of Shakespeare’s plays for anyone, but, for an English novelist who happens to be Jewish, also the most challenging.”

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Shylock Is My Name by Howard Jacobson is a modern rebelling of Willian Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. I truly enjoyed reading this new literary novel. It was fascinating to follow. From the start to end I was enchanted with the characters. Especially, Shylock. There is so much depth to him. This character’s struggles are engaging. Some are easy to understand while others are more complicated. Both internal and external conflicts are shown throughout the read. The other characters, Strulovitch and Zionist add to the tale. Their roles are quite interesting. The modern twist and drama soak up readers into an entertaining adventure filled with humor, betrayal, grief and rejection. Howard Jacobson has indeed captured William Shakespeare’s tale and brought to life a brilliant new masterpiece. This satire will leave readers like myself begging for another book, told by this talented writer. 

Shylock Is My Name is a new compelling piece of fiction that’s fresh, exciting, and keeps readers guessing. The style of writing is easy to read. The pages seem to fly by as readers delve deeper into the story. What I loved about this book, was that Howard Jacobson brought in a culture and heritage that is popular even today. The Jews and hatred towards them. Then there’s the issues of those leaving behind their Jewish heritage. Today, we see a lot of that as well. Other topics like revenge and anger are displayed. Once, I opened this novel, I couldn’t stop reading it at all. Howard Jacobson has a way of drawing his readers to his characters and their lives. Beautifully woven. Overall, I highly recommend Shylock Is My Name to readers everywhere. 

Review: Dead Down East

Dead Down East (Jesse Thorpe Mysteries Book 1) by [Schmidt, Carl]

 

Synopsis:

Dead Down East, a fictional murder mystery, is both detective noir and smart screwball comedy rolled into one.

Carl Schmidt’s writing is that of a seasoned writers. Words that make me want to dig further and solve the case as well as find out more about Jesse Thorpe. Dead Down East holds murder, humor, and a mystery unlike any other. The danger is real. Plus, there’s some steamy scenes. The characters will blow away readers’ minds. Jesse Thorpe goes on a mission to rescue a woman who is in danger. She happens to be in the same area that someone else was recently assassinated. Jesse Thorpe goes about finding the murdering weapon, theft, has the DNA of an accomplice for the murder. If the accomplice can be found and interrogated the murder might just be within reach…but it all depends on if, when, and how. Every page is filled with action of some kind.

Plus, she’s always in trouble at work – her pre-school charges adore her, but their parents don’t always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner.

Dr. Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There’s only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, all would be lost.

When Dr. Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he’s relying – as usual – on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time he’s really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two men’s touchingly ludicrous campaign to bring her around?

Book Review: The Vampire Next Door by Ashlyn Chase

The Vampire Next Door is an astounding novel. The characters will leave you laughing as it unfolds. The plot is well written in a hot, sensual, exciting way. Readers will love Sly Flores, a vampire, who only goes after the bad guys. Sly keeps the neighborhoods safe by satisfying his appetite from the evil ones. The story is about a witch name Morgaine. She lives upstairs from Sly. Sly tries to deny his attraction towards Morgaine. Even with the character being a vampire and a witch, readers can easily connect with them. The way they act around each other will send you falling head over heels in love. The scenes are sweet, funny, and adorable. Take out the paranormal and you have a realistic story about two lovers who try but fail at denying their love. I loved reading this book from the first page until the end. Their was one scene, where Sly accidentally bit a bad guy’s silver necklace. This caused his fangs to stay out and caused him pain. He goes to see Morgaine. She is a healing witch. While Morgaine is checking his fangs and gum, Sly’s thoughts automatically go towards kissing Morgaine. Half-way into his fantasy about her, he shakes his heads after he realizes what he’s thinking about. Morgaine then chooses that moment to make him a healing salve. Ashlyn Chase is a very talented writer. She knows how to use humor and interweave it into her beautifully written romance novel.  I loved it. I look forward to reading her other two books as well. Those looking for a paranormal romance with a unique twist and humor, then this is the book for you! I highly recommend  readers to read this story. I promise you will be hooked from beginning to end.
