REVIEW Stacey McCoy Reanimation


















BOOK INFO:
Title: Reanimation 
Series: Reanimation Trilogy#1
Author: Stacey McCoy
Genre: Paranormal
Publication Date: May 26, 2017

SYNOPSIS:

Rylan should be 45 years old.

His heart should beat regularly and pump blood through his veins.

His skin should feel warm, not ice cold and free of imperfections.

Rylan is a vampire and he will never be human again.

When Rylan meets Kady he falls irreversibly in love with her. A long lasting and physical relationship is impossible with him being a vampire and she a mere human.

But what if there were a way they could be together? What if there were a way to reverse the disease that possesses his body?

Kady’s father, Dr Allister Matthews, is a world renowned stem cell researcher who has found a way to cure vampires of their disease.

The process is called Reanimation.

The question is, if you were a young, indestructible vampire gifted with immense power, unattainable speed and unimaginable wealth set to live for an eternity and you were given the chance to reanimate back into a slow, weak, vulnerable human being, would you do it?

Would you do it for love?

[Pamela]

Amazon/Goodreads Rating: 5/5
In Patti's Imagination: 10/10

This book is very different from normal vampire books. In this one a cure has been created to cure the vampire disease and turn them back into a human. When I read the description of this book I had a feeling I would really enjoy this book and I wasn't disappointed. I definitely felt more of a closeness to Rylan and Kady but still really liked all the characters in this book. The only thing I didn't care for too much was how quickly Kady and Allister forgave Noreen. I think there should of been more there instead of a quick forgiveness once her story was told. I still really enjoyed this book besides that one thing. I didn't want this book to end so I'm definitely glad that the author mentioned at the end there will be another book. I can't wait to read book 2. I will say that if you like vampire books you should give this one a try. 

I received an Arc from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Author Bio: 











I’m a happy farmer’s wife and a dedicated mother of two. I work part-time on our farm and rarely want to do anything other than write in my spare time.

I’ve only been writing since September 2014 and even though it’s taken a long time for me to realise what it is I want to do with my life (regarding career choice) and I can’t tell you how comfortable and confident I feel when I write.

Why do I write? Because I want to make people cry, laugh, feel every aching heartbreak and moment of pure elation and point of ecstasy my characters experience.

Admitting to myself and others that I wanted to write and become a published author, at first, was confusing and scary to them and me. Never had I thought it be possible that I write more than one full length novel…but I have and now I am a published author.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this novel and all future novels yet to be published by me.

Be prepared to laugh until you cry, or if you're a mom, be prepared for some leaking! This book is EVERYTHING! At heart it's a true love story but with a rollicking twist! Jeff and Henley are perfect together, definitely relationship goals. When they face parenthood in the near future all sorts of hi-jinks and amusing situations occur. I advise you not read this while lying next to your sleeping spouse, as they may not find the hilariousness as enjoyable as you. Once again B.L. Berry has released a must read, therefore further solidifying her spot on my must read author list.

Excerpt

“Neither of us has been in a serious relationship in years.” “That doesn’t mean anything.” I stand and slide my feet into the Jimmy Choos. “You haven’t exactly been waiting around, have you?” “Damn right I haven’t been waiting around.” He doesn’t get up, but his firm hold on my wrist stops me from walking away. “I’m not Rhyson.” I look down at him, frowning my confusion. “What do you mean?” “Remember when Kai put Rhyson in the friend zone?” Of course I do. For a long time, my sister-in-law Kai denied the attraction between her and Rhyson. “Yeah, so?” “When Kai wasn’t checking for Rhys, I assumed he had to be sleeping with other girls.” Grip shrugs. “I mean, he and Kai were just friends. But, nope. He said he only wanted Kai and didn’t sleep with anyone else.” “Then you’re right.” I tug at my wrist, but he holds on tight. “You’re definitely not Rhyson.” “It was months, Bristol. She shut him out for months. Not years.” “I’m not shutting you out.” I release a tired breath. “I’m living my life, and you’re living yours.” “Right.” He nods and turns his mouth down at the corners. “So, if you won’t be with me, then I’ll fuck whoever the hell I want. If you have a problem with that, you know what to do about it.” For a moment, our eyes tangle in the dimness. His words sink into my flesh like briars. Every word out of his mouth only proves that I’m right to get out of here. That I’m right not to give in. If I ever gave him a chance and he fucked around on me . . . I’ve seen what that looks like. It looks like a woman as strong as my mother reduced to pathetic, teary drunkenness. “It’s none of my business.” I shift my eyes away from him and to the glittering city skyline just beyond the rooftop. “It’s none of your business until you say it is.” I force myself to look back. “Don’t hold your breath, Grip.” I say my next words with deliberation. “I mean, it’s not like I’m sitting around saving it, either.” He pulls me forward, and I press my hand to the hardness of his chest so I don’t fall into him. My knee supports me, pressed against his on the couch. “Are you poking me?” One strong hand wraps around the back of my thigh, anger marking his expression. “Do you want to know if it bothers me when you fuck other guys?” I just stare at him unblinkingly. He presses my leg, urging me forward until I’m fully on the couch, fully on him, one knee on either side of his legs, facing him. Straddling him. “It makes me want to set the world on fire.” His words come softly, but the truth roars in his eyes. “To think of you with them.”

RELEASE BLITZ-- Sawyer Bennett's LUCAS!!

                                

Title:  Lucas (Cold Fury, Book #8) 

Author:  Sawyer Bennett 

Release Date: September 19, 2017

                                   

SYNOPSIS


The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love. Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder. Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting. Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.

RELEASE BOOST - Adriana Locke's LUCKY NUMBER ELEVEN




Title: Lucky Number Eleven
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Sports Romance
Release Date: September 7, 2017



Blurb

People say not to believe the things you read in magazines, but you know what? Most things you’ve heard about me are probably true.

I totally banged the reporter in the locker room after the championship game last year.

Those pictures in Expose from last summer? Those were not modified.

I’m also not really six-foot tall. (But let’s keep that between us.)

Now, I know you’re wondering about that last Expose headline—the one about me and my teammate (and ex-best friend) Finn Miller’s sister, Layla James. That one is a little more complicated.

Here’s the thing: I’ve played football my whole life. If there’s one thing I know, it’s how to adjust when the game changes. And if there’s one thing I always do, it’s find a way to win.

Granted, the stakes are higher. The playbook has changed. There’s more on the line than (another) MVP title. But guess what hasn’t changed? Me. I’m still Branch “Lucky” Best and I’m not about to fumble this one.

Grab a seat and a subscription to Expose. I’m about to make some headlines. (Again.)

A sexy, swoon-filled standalone novel.

Excerpt

“One question,” Poppy interjects, looking at Branch. “What position are you?”
“I typically like the bottom so I can watch—oomph,” he says, getting another elbow from Finn. “Wide receiver. Why?”
Looking at Poppy, I can’t help but laugh as her eyes light up.
“You got a problem with wide receivers?” Branch asks.
“You do,” Finn interjects, giving me a narrowed glare. “They aren’t any better than quarterbacks.”
Branch looks from me, to Finn, and back to me. “Why do we not like quarterbacks?”
“My sister was dating Callum Worthington.”
“No shit?” His face puckers like he just bit into a lemon. “How in the hell did that cocksucker end up with you?”
“He didn’t. We’re not together anymore.”
Branch’s eyes heat, the look causing my pulse to quicken. “I’m not a bit sorry to hear that.”
“You better forget you heard any of that,” Finn warns. “This is my sister, Branch. Not a cheerleader or reporter or some chick from a dating app. Got it?”
“Finn, relax,” I say, shoving a swallow past the lump in my throat. “I appreciate the big brother spiel, but I can handle myself.”
“I know you can,” he says, pulling his gaze away from Branch. “But you can’t handle him.”

Amazon/Goodreads Rating: 5/5 Stars

In Patti's Imagination Rating: 10/10 Stars

 "Everyone deserves a second chance, even those who lead with hate. They’re the ones who need forgiveness the most."

I'm going to start off by saying that while I have read and loved every book Gia Riley has written this one has quickly taken its place as favorite of all. It has EVERYTHING, ALL THE FEELS, from happiness and tears, to angst and sorrow. This author knows how to engulf you in the world you are reading, to encompass your heart and soul. Dylan and Zoe's love story was one for the ages, one I could easily see made into a movie, as I could watch everything flow so harmoniously in my imagination as I read. There were times that my heart was in my throat but I trusted the author would not leave me disappointed or broken hearted for too long. This book is easily on my top ten of books read in 2017.

Review:
[Pamela]

Amazon/Goodreads Rating: 4/5
In Patti's Imagination: 9/10

This is book 2 of the Raven MC series. It's stated that you can read this as a standalone but I highly suggest you don't attempt that. I read the first book but even I felt lost for a while reading this since I read that several months ago. This is a more intense MC than what Im used to reading. There is a lot of death and one particular scene that made it hard for me to continue reading. I forced myself to push through and am glad I did. I loved how everything played out between Lincoln and Sully. It's pretty sad but I was also rooting for a certain death to happen and the author didn't disappoint. I will say even though I had to push through certain parts I still found this book to be enjoyable. If your used to reading MC that isn't mild then I think you'd love this book. 

I received an Arc from the author in exchange for an honest review


Author Bio: 

I am a happily married mother of three (two boys and one girl). I live in a very small town in Alabama. Never lived anywhere else. I’ve been writing since my early twenties, but I couldn’t seem to finish a book. I’ve started self-publishing with the encouragement from my mom. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done it. She always supported me and writing is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. As long as I enjoy it, I’ll continue to do it. I’ve learned already that I can’t please everyone. Not all reviews will be good, not all reviews will be bad. I’m the one that has to be happy with my work.

I get my inspiration from life experiences, movies, television, other authors, and music. Music is definitely a big influence on my writing. I can hear a song and it can inspire an entire book for me. I listen to it while I’m driving or before I start writing and it keeps me inspired. I like to put music in my books, even if it’s just one song the characters listen to or hear at some point. Sometimes music has gotten me through the really tough times in my life and that’s why it inspires me.

I like to write fast-paced, steamy romance reads. I like for my males to be alpha-males and my heroines to be strong, but both need to have one weakness- each other. I am an avid reader. I absolutely love romance books!

REVIEW Nicole Dykes Untangled

Review:
[Pamela]

Amazon/Goodreads Rating: 4/5
In Patti's Imagination: 9/10

This book is part of the Monroe series. It's one of those that once you start you don't want to stop. You can read each as a standalone but highly recommend you read them all. In this particular book you get a love triangle. Can exes live together to rebuild a friendship without crossing any lines? We get Vanessa who had dated Cam for a yr but broke up with him. She's all about the games and playing hard to get. She's also very childish in my opinion. Then we have Dani who will go after whatever or whoever she wants with no games and doesn't care what anyone thinks. Van acts like she doesn't want Cam yet doesn't want him with anyone else either. Will Cam ever get tired of dealing with Vanessa and move on or does he force her to be with him? This was a very enjoyable quick read. I probably would of rated it a 5 star if it wasn't for Vanessa. Gosh, I just hate her and her immaturity so much. That's right, I'm a Dani lover and not afraid to admit it. I still wish this ended a lot different than it did but that just has me looking forward to the next book even more.

Author Bio: 





I grew up in a small rural town in Kansas and currently live in a suburb of Kansas City. I love to read books that have main characters that are seriously flawed. I love to write and have been writing since I was in grade school. I wrote for my college newspaper and I just published my first book March 2015!
