Review- Mad Sea

31624975

Well… Okay then, K. Webster!

This book is short, sweet, to the point and pretty awesome. I don’t typically read romance-y type of

books. However, this one caught my eye because it is written by K.Webster and

I love her. I have read quite a few of her books and I honestly haven’t been disappointed. There is something juvenile about some of her characters, which can be a little annoying to read, but overall, I really love her work. All of her stories have a twist, and this one did as well.

Mad Sea follows a biker bad boy (Madden) who falls in love with “the girl next door” (Hali) who works at a frozen yogurt shop. Every Sunday, Madden ditches his life of drugs and crime to come get a cutesy little frozen yogurt dessert…and to see Hali. He is pretty much a stalker, which for some reason, makes him really interesting.

The entire book he is fighting a battle between his work life and his personal life. He doesn’t want Hali mixed up in the drugs, illegal activity, etc. He also has a really interesting secret. I am not sure how I feel about it, I think it is a little weird, but hey…I rolled with it.

This is a super short story and worth the quick read. It’s fun, exciting and super cute. I will warn you though, this has a A LOT of dirty language and rated R content.

Overall, this book received 4/5 stars from me. I docked 1 star because I am not a fan of excessive foul language and the story ended too abruptly, in my opinion.

Nonetheless, I hope you check this out. Even if you are not a huge fan of romance, this book is a winner.

Motorcycles and the ocean are my only loves.
Until Hali.
Every Sunday, I exchange my mancard for a punch on my pink frozen yogurt card.
Just to see her.
This is what stalkers do, you see.
I’ll do whatever it takes to catch one tiny glimpse of her bright smile—a smile she shines upon me, even if only for a few brief moments—to light up my usually dark, lonely world.
Hello, my name is Madden Finn.
And I’m in love with a girl who doesn’t even know my name.

***Mad Sea was originally created as a story for an anthology. There were size constraints which explains the short length of this story. Because of this, the story is sweet, to the point, and all kinds of instalove. If you’re looking for a quick, lovable read that is quite outside your normal reading zone, then you’re going to love this.***

More Than Need You – Blitz

Add To GoodReads Here

I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

This book is the second in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.

This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)

The Ash House – My Review

35120150

my-rating-4-stars

 

 

 

Hello, all!

Wowza, this book is completely different than anything I typically read. I would classify this as a supernatural/horror read. It is the first of its kind that I have read, and I was pleasantly surprised!

This book essentially follows a dying woman and her son. Because she knows she is dying, she wants to find out if her mother’s home is actually haunted in the hopes that when she dies, she can come back and haunt her son. Creepy right? It may be creepy, but I found myself admiring her determination to want to be there for her family, even in death.

Anyhoo, she goes along, trying to figure out if this house is haunted. She can’t seem to feel or see anything supernatural, but her son does. Her son does over, and over, and over again. He keeps quiet about it for the most part, so no one really knows what is going on. However, the ghosts that he encounters are down right creepy.

Amy Cross does a great job of keeping the reader on the edge of their seats with this one. There were times I felt as if I was watching a horror movie. I made the mistake of reading at night and almost ….ALMOST….needed a night light. DON’T JUDGE ME!

The reason I gave this 4 starts instead of 5 is because of the writing. The writing level is pretty low and it lacks depth. There are parts of the story that are amazingly descriptive, while other parts fall flat. I also gave it 4 stars because parts of the story are dry. I found myself wondering “Okay, where are we going with this” on a few occasions.

Overall, it is a great book for those interested in the things that go BUMP in the night. She depicts the ghosts in a interesting manner that is something right out of a horror movie. The story line is great and you can’t help but feel for the characters. Check it out!

XOXO,

Why would anyone ever return to a haunted house?

For Diane Mercer the answer is simple. She’s dying of cancer, and she wants to know once and for all whether ghosts are real.

FROM THE AUTHOR OF ASYLUM, HAUNTED AND THE NIGHT GIRL.

Heading home with her young son, Diane is determined to find out whether the stories are real. After all, everyone else claimed to see and hear strange things in the house over the years. Everyone except Diane had some kind of experience in the house, or in the little ash house in the yard.

As Diane explores the house where she grew up, however, her son is exploring the yard and the forest. And while his mother might be struggling to come to terms with her own impending death, Daniel Mercer is puzzled by fleeting appearances of a strange little girl who seems drawn to the ash house, and by strange, rasping coughs that he keeps hearing at night.

THE ASH HOUSE is a horror novel about a woman who desperately wants to know what will happen to her when she dies, and about a boy who uncovers the shocking truth about a young girl’s murder.
