Between the Sea and Stars (Lena #1) by Chantal Gadoury #Review

* I received a eCOPY of this book for my honest review*


A Legend, 
A Magical Shell 
A Girl Who Dreamed Of Something More... 

Lena, a Merrow girl, lives in the Skagerrak sea with her father, Carrick and her brother, Javelin who tells her of the legend of the Merrow Queen murdered by her human lover when greed takes over. But what’s worth spilling the queen’s blood? Gifted from Poseidon, himself, a magic shell gives any human the ability to control both land and sea. 

When Javelin is called to join a clan of Merrow soldiers bent on protecting their waters from human invasion, Lena resists Merrow law and ventures to the shore with no choice but to swim to land. 

With newfound legs, Lena is whisked away on a new adventure with new friends and new trouble. Everyone seems to want something from her as intrigue lurks around every corner. 

Trying her best to hide who she is and remain safe from the dangers of the human world, will Lena finally find where she belongs, or will she be swept into a strong and stormy current by lust, greed, and jealousy?

MY THOUGHTS

I read this one yesterday evening/night and I very much enjoyed this book. 
I have never read a Little Mermaid re-telling before and I admit I am not really familiar with the original or the Disney version because the story never really interested me but this book sounded interesting and different from anything I have read before. 

The book is very well written and it got me hooked into the story right away.

I hope there will be a second book because I need to read more. 

If you like Young Adult fantasy re-telling I do highly recommend this book.  


I give this 4 out of 5.

Vengeance By Rebecca Zanetti #Review #ExcerptTour

 

“The last thing she ever expected to find in her anger management group was love for a vampire.”

From New York Times Bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti, comes VENGEANCE, a new novella in her Dark Protectors and Rebels Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!

 

About VENGEANCE:

From New York Times bestselling author, Rebecca Zanetti, comes a new Dark Protectors/Rebels Novella…

Vengeance and revenge are the only forces driving vampire soldier Noah Siosal since losing his brother to an enemy he’s been unable to find. He’s searched every corner of the globe, going through adversaries and piling up bodies until finally getting a lead. The last place he wants to be is in a ridiculous anger management group with people expressing feelings instead of taking action. Until one fragile human, a green-eyed sweetheart being stalked by danger, catches his eye. One touch, and he realizes vengeance can’t be anywhere near her.

Anger and self-preservation are the only motivations Abby Miller needs or wants right now. Falsely accused of attacking the man who’s terrorized her for years, she’s forced as a plea bargain to attend an anger management counseling group with people with some serious rage issues, while learning true self defense on the side. Yet a man, one more primal than any she’s ever met, draws her in a way and into a world deadlier than she’s ever imagined. He offers her protection, but she finds the fight is really for his heart, and she’s ready to battle.

EXCERPT:

Abby tried not to feel sympathy for the screwed-up guy who looked like one of those actors from the Viking show on Netflix. He really did see demons everywhere. She smiled at the detective. Without him, she’d be in jail right now. The guy definitely had come to her aid, when everyone else was against her.
He smiled back.
The sexy guy next to Ivar pinned her with a look. Noah. Such a nice name for somebody so obviously dangerous. What was it about him? Heat climbed into her face, and she turned toward the shrink. “I’m not sure what all to say.” Nobody believed the truth. Except maybe the cop.
“Just tell us what happened,” Mariana said, clutching her files.
“Well, I agreed to a plea bargain for throwing a pitcher at my ex-husband’s head during a domestic dispute that the asshat started and finished.” The judge had warned her, very sternly, about slander charges if she said anything bad against Monte, so she stuck with the judge’s final Order. It didn’t matter that she’d never even had a chance to throw a pitcher before he’d hit her. She still had bruises on her ribs from that last fight. “The prosecutor was going for a jail sentence, and I took a plea deal that Detective O’Connell made sure I could get.” Abby sat back.
Mariana blinked. “Your file shows several arrests and plea bargains.”
“Yeah. I’ve read my file,” Abby said, not expecting anybody to believe the truth. They never did.
Mariana tapped a file. “I can’t help you with your anger issues if you don’t delve into the full truth about where your anger comes from.” Her voice was soft and kind.
“Nobody can help me,” Abby returned, plucking a string on her jeans.
Ivar looked at her for the first time. “I can kill him if you want. Then you won’t have to throw pitchers at his head any longer.” The total unconcerned way he spoke made his words all the more chilling.
Noah chuckled and elbowed him hard in the gut. “He’s kidding. Bad sense of humor. We learned that in the service.” But his gaze stayed on Abby, searching deep. She could almost feel his intent, and it wasn’t an entirely bad sensation. Warning ticked through her head, even as he spoke again. “Can we read each other’s files?” he asked.
“No,” Mariana said. “But this is a safe place, and we can talk about anything.”
“There are no safe places,” Raine returned, almost cheerfully, his gaze square on Ivar.


MY THOUGHTS

If you have not read Rebecca Zanetti's Dark Protectors/Rebels series then this is a great place to start because it can be read as a stand-alone. 

This novella is fast-paced and steamy suspenseful Paranormal romance book.  It was a quick read but didn't feel rushed at all.  It was just perfect. 

I can't wait to read more. 

I am giving this 5 out of 5.

His Demand (Dirtier Duet #1) By Lisa Renee Jones #Review

* I received a eARC of this book for my honest review*



Gabe Maxwell is a powerhouse in the boardroom, a man with a dark past he's buried under success and power. He's not a white picket fence and forever kind of guy and he's definitely not into redheads. That is until one corners him, kisses him and thanks him for waking her up. Right before she walks away and leaves him. She's gone and he's obsessed.

Then she walks into his office and back into his life, and he has to have her. It doesn't matter that she's the kind of woman you marry. It doesn't matter that she's everything he avoids because she's everything he wants. 

Only Abbie isn't the good girl she seems. She has secrets and a past and soon, she'll pull Gabe into her bed, her life, and that spells more than obsession. It spells danger.

MY REVIEW

Lisa Renee Jones does it again!!  

His Demand is book one in the Dirtier Duets and wow!  Boy was this book good.  I couldn't put this book down and I didn't want to because it was so good.

I love the story and the characters.

I am giving this 5 out of 5.
