 Review

I have been a fan of Rebecca Rohman for a while now so when I heard about Translating The Tides I just had to read it right away.

I was hooked into this book right away.  I love this book . I love Rob and Gia and I just loved the suspense and the drama in this book.  

Translating The Tides is one I will get in paperback and I know I will be reading this book again in the near future. 

I give this 4 1/2 out of 5. 





★ Excerpt 1 - Their First Encounter...


“Gia French, is it? Am I pronouncing that correctly?” the ticketing agent at Reagan Washington National asks.

“It’s Gia like the letter G, then yuh—Gee-yuh.”

“That’s a pretty name. May I have your passport please?”

I thank her and politely hand it over.

It’s been a remarkable journey touring the east coast of the United States but it must end. Unfortunately, I am two days ahead of schedule because my director at Versace in Milan unexpectedly wants to meet with me tomorrow because he’ll be traveling in a few days.

I arrived at the ticket counter to see if I could find a way to change my plans and make it on the next flight out of here to get back to Milan in time for a meeting tomorrow evening. According to my research, a flight leaves here in a little over an hour. It looked packed but I intend to get on it.

The airport traffic is dying now that it’s 8 p.m. Thankfully, I’m the only one in line. But I’m anxious and hoping the agent can quickly work this out in time for me to make it through security and catch the flight.

“Excuse me,” a man walks up to the counter. “I need to get out of here—urgently.”

“And you assume I don’t,” I respond slightly perturbed by his intrusion.

The attendant responds to him. “Look, sir, I’m the only one working here right now so you’re going to have to wait until I finish things here with this customer.”

“Thank you,” I nod at her in approval and smile.

“Well, can you hurry it up already?”

How rude.

The woman ignores him and she tries to sort me out while he huffs and puffs behind me. 
I turn to him and smile. “You know, rudeness will only get you so far,” utter sarcasm filters through my words. “Sometimes a little politeness can take you a long way. Pardon me…I don’t mean to intrude…or maybe you could have asked me nicely first. That’s called manners, or didn’t you learn those? Do they not exist on the planet you come from?”

His vivid blue eyes turn dark and cold. “Listen, lady, I’m not in the mood, okay.”

“Well, neither am I, so back off and let me handle my business,” I snap.

He doesn’t respond and looks at something on his phone.

The clerk manages to get me on a flight from here to Munich and from Munich to Milan. I’ll have to head straight from the airport to my meeting but barring no delays, I’ll get there on time.

“Here you go Ms. French.” She hands me my boarding passes and passport. “Your flight leaves out of gate twenty-two in fifty-five minutes.”

“Thank you.”

As I turn to leave, the man behind me stares at me crossly when my carry-on suitcase is stuck in the strap of his. When I yank it away, the case turns off its wheels and runs over his foot.

“Maybe you should watch where you’re going,” he says tersely.

“Maybe you should keep your belongings out of the way,” I retort. “Considering it’s beyond the check-in line, that’s a hindrance and a liability.”

“You know what? Why don’t you just mind your own business and get lost.”

“Gladly,” I respond. “Cuzão!”

“What was that?” he shouts from behind me.

I swear he’s trying to provoke me.

I stop and turn to him, “I said you’re an asshole. What are you going to do, beat me up? You stupid dingbat.” 

I stomp away curtly with my blood-red stilettos pounding the terrazzo floors making it through security and to the gate just in time to get onto the aircraft.

★ Excerpt 2 - Sexual Hedonism...

“Are you single? Are you seeing anyone?”

“No. I’m not in a relationship with anyone except my two dogs Bella and Cudjoe. In addition, if I were seeing anyone, I would not have spent that time with you. There are two girls I see, but it’s purely sexual.”


“I can’t believe you just admitted that to me.”

“It is what it is.”

“Do they know about each other?”

“Yes—they’re best friends.”

“And you have sex…with both of them?”

“Yes.”

“Together?”

“Yes.”

“You’re a freak…a promiscuous male slut.”

A sexy grin crosses his lips. “I’ve been called worse, but don’t expect me to apologize just because I’m sexually uninhibited.”

I find his honesty both refreshing and appalling. “Why would I expect you to apologize?

And who says you’re the only one who’s sexually uninhibited?”

He nearly chokes on his wine. 

I giggle. “Does that surprise you?”

“Let’s just say I was not expecting that response.” He laughs.

“Well, I’m not a slut and I don’t engage in threesomes but I thoroughly enjoy great sex with the right man.”

“As you should.”

“So do you use protection when you engage in all this hedonism?”

“Always.” He winks at me.

“So when do you intend to see them next?”

It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me. Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back. ADD TO GOODREADS

***MISADVENTURES ARE STANDALONE ROMANCES THAT CAN BE READ IN ANY ORDER***
Synopsis
Straitlaced freshman Zooey Cartwright has arrived at UCLA determined to have a heck of a lot more fun in college than she did in high school. What’s the first item on Zooey’s agenda before classes start in two days? Losing her pesky V card. She’s definitely not looking for a boyfriend, so where can Zooey find the right guy to do the deed and move along without a backward glance? 
At a party thrown by a bunch of football players, of course. Enter Tyler Caldwell. A beast on the field and off, cocky as heck, and often wearing T-shirts with sayings like “God’s Gift to Womankind,” Tyler is most definitely not boyfriend material. After a make-out session with Tyler leaves Zooey entirely unsatisfied, she is determined never to see him again. But her schedule lands her in not one but two of his classes, and it doesn’t take long before Tyler and Zooey have reached an arrangement for Tyler to teach Zooey exactly what she wants to know―and a whole lot more she never bargained for. Can Zooey surrender her body to this bad boy without giving him her heart, too?

THE FATE OF THE EVERLIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

At seventeen years old, Tenley “Ten” Lockwood needed to make the ultimate choice—where to live after she died. Loyalty to her selected realm has not wavered…until now. The numbers-obsessed Conduit is out of time. Sacrifices must be made, and a terrible price must be paid. But is she too late?

As the Everlife descends into darkness, a single truth becomes clear: Troika and Myriad must unite in the end—or perish. As a way to bring sworn enemies together, Ten must enter forbidden territory…and destroy the powerful Prince of Ravens. But there’s only one way inside—bonding with Killian Flynn, a deadly rival Laborer who sets her blood aflame.

When nothing goes as planned and betrayal results in the edge of utter defeat, Ten and Killian must rebuild agree with from the ashes in their hearts. Victory seems not possible; the odds stacked against them. In spite of everything, how far will they be willing to go for the sake in their realms and the Everlife?

"Utterly unique and absolutely riveting—I couldn’t put it down! What a marvelously cool world." —Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author, on Firstlife

        EXCERPT: 

The identity of our intruders clicks. Two Troikan Generals: Shamus Campbell and Luciana Rossi. Behind them, four La­borers I’ve never met. A total of six invaders.
6: symbolizes beauty and high ideals. The sixth sense: ESP. The sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac: Virgo.
Focus! A soft pitter-patter of footfalls echoes outside the cave. More TLs?
Killian isn’t safe.
Panic claws its way up the ridges of my spine, and my blood f lash-freezes. I strain with all my might, desperate to move, but my body refuses to cooperate. Every attempt to raise my arms threatens to pop my shoulders out of joint. I don’t care. Nothing will halt my efforts.
“Kill, kill.” Between each command—desire?—Killian snarls like a wounded animal. “Kill!”
Shamus, a big, barrel-chested redhead with pale skin and countless freckles, slams a fist against his armor-clad chest to gain my attention. His dark eyes are narrowed, a muscle jumping in his jaw. “What did you do, Miss Lockwood? And do no’ tell me nothin’.” His accent is similar to Killian’s.
Luciana, a slender brunette with lovely brown skin and startling gray irises, backs away from me, horror contorting her expression. “I’ll tell you what she did. She doomed us all.”
Doomed…
Is she right? She can’t be. She just can’t.
I look down at Killian. My new husband is pulling at hanks of his hair.
Hopes, falling from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows.
“Out,” Shamus snarls at the TLs. “Now.”
All four soldiers rush from the cave without protest.
I stiffen. The General has evened the odds. Two against two. A foolish move for a war-seasoned veteran. Unless he got rid of any witnesses…
Willing to use my body as a shield, I push through the pain—snap. My shoulder does pop out of joint. Or maybe back into joint. Air wheezes from my lungs. Worth it! Finally, I can move. I crawl toward Killian, every inch I gain only adding fuel to an already blazing fire of agony.
Can’t stop. No, won’t stop. Determination drives me. I only wish it gave me wings.
“Kill. Must kill.” Killian is lost in a world of his own.
“You won’t be killing anyone, you son of a Myriad troll.” With a hand curled around the hilt of a sword, Shamus stalks toward him.
“Stop! He doesn’t know what he’s saying right now.” My voice is barely audible, my gaze locked on my love. So close, yet so far away. Desperation slams a spike straight through my heart.
Any other day, I would have used the comm built into the forearm of spirit and Shell. With the press of a few buttons, it could transport me to Killian’s side and, as long as some part of me is touching some part of him, whisk us both somewhere else. Somewhere safe. Like a fool, I disabled the device to hide from fellow Troikans while meeting with Killian.
I should have known they’d find me one way or another.
“Stop,” I repeat, even as I gain another inch. “That’s an order.” As a Conduit, I outrank the Generals. As a newbie to the Everlife, however, my exalted rank doesn’t really mean squat.
“We can’t hurt him,” Luciana grates. She extends her arm, stopping Shamus in his tracks. “You’ve effectively tied our hands, Miss Lockwood.”
Though the shadows are no longer slithering through my mind, I’m not exactly thinking straight. I struggle to make sense of her words, finally throw in the towel. “I don’t understand.”

“You bonded to him, did you not?” She spits the words, as if they taste foul in her mouth. “That bond forces us to spare Myriad’s favorite butcher and watch as you, one of only two Conduits, slowly descends into madness.”

Second Chance Cowboy by A.J. Pine #CowboyoftheMonth #COTMCrew




SECOND CHANCE COWBOY
by A.J. Pine

 Once a cowboy, always a cowboy
Ten years ago, Jack Everett left his family’s ranch without a backward glance. Now, what was supposed to be a quick trip home for his father’s funeral has suddenly become more complicated. The ranch Jack can handle—he might be a lawyer, but he still remembers how to work with his hands. But turning around the failing vineyard he’s also inherited? That requires working with the one woman he never expected to see again.
Ava Ellis broke her own heart the night she let Jack go. She was young and scared—and secretly pregnant with Jack’s baby. Now that he’s back and asking for her help, Ava sees her opportunity to right the wrongs of the past. But how will he feel about the son he’s never known? Could this be their second chance—or their final heartbreak?
