Charmine Pauls - Dubious

Dubious (The Loan Shark Duet, #1)Dubious by Charmaine Pauls
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow oh wow this book is completely different then anything I have read before. It's most definitely an emotional roller coaster!!
Valentina is the strongest female character I've read about in a while. Her sense of loyalty is to be admired, the love she holds for her brother knows no bounds.

Gabriel is the captor, the "bad guy" accept he's not! You want to dislike him but you can't help but feel he's a victim of his upbringing. He has a heart and even though you shouldn't root for this unconventional relationship, you find you do!

It's a dark romance but these two broken characters sort of make each other complete. They need a chance to blossom and succeed. They need love....
I can not wait to see if this couple can over come the odds and the evil that stands in their way! They need a HEA.

Awesome intriguing writing, one of a kind memorable characters. A story I won't forget

Summer Vacation is here!

Summer Vacation is here! The question is what do we do to keep the kids occupied for the coming months?


I've seen the judgmental comments on FB from Mary Poppins, Cookie cutter parents who wander how other parents could possibly loose their minds during this time, because our bundles of joy are just 24/7 angels.

I love my kids dearly I really do! I'm the picture of the PTO mom.. I got this Sh*t down. However lets be real every parent loses a mind after the 500th mom of the day.
I'm bored
He's looking at me!
Can we go to the moon!
Can we eat out for every meal for the next 12 weeks!

Its like they revert to newborns again, having to eat every 2 hours.. They have 15 snacks a day and don't even get me started on how many rolls of toilet paper my house has gone through! YOU are not alone out there! And because drowning your sorrows in bottles of wine a day is frowned upon I have put together a list to give you ideas of what to do!

The Pool

The local pool often offers a very cost effective pass for the entire summer! Rather then if you just pay for a day pass I've found that if you pay for the member pass it pays for itself in a handful of visits!

Groupon

Look for deals and coupons places like SKY ZONE often have coupons you can buy for half the regular price.

The Library

The public Library often puts together a summer program for children of all ages. They will also do special events during the summer and encourage you to take part, normally this is of no charge to you! All you have to do is visit the website and check the calendar of events. Also ask your library about FREE museum passes.

The Movies

Check your local parks and movie theaters - Many will offer a movie in the park night or $1 movie specials. READING MOVIES offer $1 movie at 10am every Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

Sports

Check with your teachers many of them will offer sporting camps during the summer with a lot lower price tag then private companies... Also if your kids miss there friends have a group of moms come together and split the price for something like a batting cage rental. In central Jersey you can Rent a cage for $40 split between 3 moms its very cost savvy and you as an adult get the added benefit of adult conversation.

National parks and Hiking trails are awesome and free! We have one not too far away that has a fairy house trail. There are also local spray parks that are always popular with my kids!

Zoo

Many zoo's will have special days that will let you visit for free if you donate to the local food bank or let you come for Free if you donate to a charity - Bronx zoo and Turtle Back Zoo both come to mind


Ipad's and Technology 

Don't feel like the bad mom for giving your kids technology time! If they earn it and you need a 30 minute reprieve go for it! Plus their are lots of awesome apps that get this moms stamp of approval.

Let me hear some of your summer ideas!

Wild and Sweet - Rhenna Morgan

Wild & Sweet (The Haven Brotherhood, #2)Wild & Sweet by Rhenna Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have finally found that series I was looking for!!! I am totally in love with the Brotherhood...

The Brotherhood are made up of super suave business men who once had a rough start in life, They banded together and became brothers of choice. They live by a code and loyalty is always first and foremost

Zeke is called in to give medical advice to Danny's sister Gabrielle after a neighborhood robbery. The only problem is that Danny is yet to be made a brother and Zeke is walking a fine line between helping this woman and protecting the brotherhood.
Something in the socially awkward Gabe calls you him, he wants to help her, protect her and open her eyes to what life has to offer. The question is will Zeke do this regardless of if his brothers have his back or not?

I love Gabe, she comes across as a weak and fragile character but I don't see her as such, She fights more then any other character to develop and change over coming huge obstacles, because of this I think shes a perfect match for Zeke! I can not wait to read about the other brothers! This series is a total win for me..
When her life is put in danger

#ComingSoon
#WithMyWholeHeart by #MariaLisadeMora
Release date: March 20, 2017
📚 Amazon http://getBook.at/WithMyWholeHeart
📚 Kobo http://bit.ly/wmwh-kobo

With My Whole Heart is a complicated story about family.

Jaime’s a young, single mother who is trying to make ends meet, feeling like she's always waging an uphill battle to make sure she and her son are housed, fed, and healthy. Connor’s designed his life to stay too busy for relationships.

How complicated is it?

She’s his big brother's surrogate, and he’s the sperm donor. How in the hell would this ever work? Connor didn't know, but he was determined to convince the feisty little blonde to take a chance on him. What he didn't realize was it meant taking a chance on himself, too.

Caution: This isn't an MC story. If you're looking for grit, you'll need to get your hard on somewhere else. No one gets kidnapped or assaulted in this one. Or even runs around without underwear on, I mean ... the hero wears boxers at one point. Come on! It's like I don't know the me who wrote it. Plus it's super sappy in places, and an unusual story setup. It's not a feckin' unicorn, but it'll do.

Vegas heat - Bend - Molly McLain

BEND (Vegas Heat - Book One)BEND by Molly McLain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Molly is one of my most favorite authors, she won me with River Bend and so I happily jumped into Vegas Heat book 1 - Bend.

Trent is a hard ass cop who is really good at his job, but sometimes gets over looked because of his love em and leave em attitude. He doesn't feel the need to kiss ass because he thinks his work speaks for its self.
This is the reason Kinsey gets him riled up, he pulls her over every chance he gets! No special treatment for the captains daughter here!

Kinsey's can't help but this Trent is hot as sin good lucking, but he drives her insane with his personal assumptions of who he believes she is as a person.

When merchandise starts getting stolen in large amounts from Kinsey's store, Trent has to find a way to work with her in order to close his case.

LOVED this story, the characters where so memorable I enjoyed the sexy banter between Trent and Kinsey as well as the friendship dynamic between Trent, his brothers and friends. I can not wait for this series to continue!

Flawed - Tracy Wolff

Flawed (Ethan Frost, #4)Flawed by Tracy Wolff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ethan Frost series has been one of my favorite romance series ever!! I'm so happy that Miles and Tori got a book and who would of thought that book would be with them together.

Tori has always been a fire cracker of a character, vibrant and fun. She is a loyal friend to Chloe and stood by her throughout her problems. But we knew deep down Tori had her own issues, family related issues that we get to find out more in this book.

Miles too is fighting with his own family issues and guilt over what his sister went through. Tori believes Miles is just as much to blame for what happened to Chloe as his parents are and that has made their "friendship" super strained.

After Tori is screwed over in a very public way she finds that Miles is the only person around she can turn to for help.
I loved watching the relationship between these two grow, change and develop. I really enjoyed getting an in depth view of them.

I would of loved to find out how Miles and his parents are getting along... (maybe for another book)
We did revisit Ethan and Chloe which was AMAZING

This book was a great addition to the series
