Idle ThursdayIdle Thursday by Kelly Moran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I'm a big Kelly Moran Fan!

This book shook me up! I laughed, cried, and changed my ways!

The narrator of the book is a typical housewife. She goes through her day narrating getting the kids off to school, the hubby off to work, and shares her thought process of wanting to get new drapes. On her way to get said drape tragedy happens.

The scenes from the wreck to the hospital, were heart breaking. What she witnesses in the room from her children and husband was mind numbing heartbreak.

Kelly did an admirable job conveying the outcome of dying and a possible scenario. Her imagery after death and the funeral are so surreal, it made my heart ache.

I loved this book and it touched me, deep into my soul. It made me realize that what I hold important, is that more precious. Anything could change in an instant.

I always wait a few extra seconds at stop sign and lights, but now I wait just a little more.

Sixth Grave on the Edge (Charley Davidson, #6)Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is the first book I have read in this series. I was gifted the book for an honest review.

I loved it and have found another great series, I am ready to go back and dive into!

It seems trouble knows how to find Charley, especially in her profession.The naked guy in her front seat is hilarious, right off the bat.

The friendship and humor of cookie keeps Charley on her toes. Then there is Reyes, the sexy, son of evil himself. He is persistent in his request for Charley's hand in marriage and that is left underlying through out the book until the end.

The drama from multiple angles and relationships was intriguing. The mystery behind why Charley's dad decides to up and leave the horrible mother-in-law. That's a dynamic I'm curious to see how it plays out.

Charley gets a hold of a file on her boyfriend Reyes that sends her looking for answers that are better left alone. This investigation into the handsome mystery of her sexy man will create a conundrum of consequences.

The book is well written, with strong, complex characters. I am anxious to go back to book one and see how it all falls into place. I won't spoil the Charley/Reyes moment.

The book is well written and the imagery transforms you the places that Mel can jump. It's a hypnotic read and I look forward to more of the series!

The King (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #12)The King by J.R. Ward

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Being a huge BDB fan like millions of others, I waited on baited breath for the next book in the amazing series.

The King give the readers a look into the background of Wrath's father Wrath and his mother. It is through the meshing of the current story line and the story line from the past, that you get a view for what being the king of the race entails. The danger and plotting of those who would taken any chance and by any means gain the power and authority of the crown.

Wrath's struggle to live up the legacy that his father died to protect is revealed and explained. It is through the glimpses into the past that the reader is vested in the journey of the Monarch. There are many story lines and they all intersect beautifully in this novel. JR has maintained the style of writing and the plots and story-line are just as well written as novel preceding this one.

The characters that she focuses on open up and you get a better understand of those who make up the brotherhood and those who support and oppose the monarchy. There are no disappointments as far as characters and how the story is written.

Although it is titled the King, there are others whom the book discusses. With some series that gain popularity the writing suffers and the books become shorter and choppy. JR Ward does not do that. She maintains the integrity of the series and the characters.

If you want to glean a better understanding of the monarchy and how it works, this book is a must read. It is full of emotions and action, and bad ass intimacy. For fans of the BDB, you know what I'm talking about because you've more than likely already read it. For those of you interested, start from book one and then you'll have another great novel to add to the mental library with this book!

Nay Sayers be damned!

Talk Dirty to Me (Plum Orchard, #1)Talk Dirty to Me by Dakota Cassidy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


WARNING! You will fall in love with this book and the rest in the series! I absolutely loved this book! I was gifted a copy for an honest review.

This book was an emotional roller coaster! I laughed, I cried, I got mad, and I fell in love!

I hate reviews that give away the entire book. So no spoilers from me!

Three long time friends find themselves back together for a somber occasion when one of them passes. The Southern Belle is forced to come back to the small town she grew up in. Shattered dreams and financial ruin make it hard to face the judgmental busy bodies both young and old of the town of Plum Orchard. Landon, who is kindhearted, wealthy, and the most sensible of the three has created an obstacle course determined to get Dixie and her true love to own up to their feelings they still have for one another. All American boy Caine, left behind by Dixie in her quest to fame, has been holding down the fort in town. Winning accolades from the Senior and Junior Mags. All Hell is about to break lose at the reading of the will and the details and stipulations are extremely entertaining.

The sweet southern town of Plum Orchard is going to be one heck of a circus when Call Girls phone sex company takes up residence and two members of distinguished families get caught up in the competition to win it all.

I couldn't put the book down! I had to know what was going to happen next! Dakota did an outstanding job writing and plotting her book! I invested so much love into this book, that I had to go buy the others in the series. You won't be let down!
