Review- A Heart for Rebel by Mia Natal

I was given this book as an ARC for a Honest Review
Rebel grew up with a addict for a mom in shabby apt.'s. She raised her little sister Bailey and showered her with attention and love.
Rebel is a dreamer and she is determined to make a place for herself in the Artist World.
Marissa her BF talks her into getting a tattoo. There she meets Wyatt, she remembers catching a glimpse of him on the train earlier in day, and is struck with want and need.
Wyatt is a bad boy but upon seeing Rebel and meeting her he knows his life will never be the same.
Can these two get past their past and make a new life or will the ghost of their past separate them? Is it just sex or is it love? Can they learn to trust one another? Will they have a HEA


This book flowed liked a seasoned writer. There was no lag in the storyline. The characters were believable and well rounded. I really liked getting Pov's from both characters. I rushed through book just to see what happened next! The Sex Scenes are XXX = Hot and Steamy, I had to stop reading a few times as I was so caught up in the sex scenes it was unbelievable,  heart racing and well very detailed so as that it was like I was in the scenes. Wink Wink!!! I can not wait to read more from Mia Natal. She is an Author to watch climb up through the ranks. Mia is a Master Story Teller with very detailed writing style!
I Highly Recommend This Book. I wish I could give more than 5 Stars.
I will add Sex Scenes 5 Stars & XXX
5 Stars- Storyline

review for a Witch and Her Man by G.E. Stills

A Witch And Her Man
by G.E. Stills 

Gail is a very frightened lady. She is getting death threats over the phone and someone has been in her house while she was at work. In desperation she employs Jeff, a PI-bodyguard, for protection and to find the one or ones responsible. During the course of their first face-to-face meeting Gail informs him she is a witch. He makes light of her revelation but soon discovers she is serious in her claim. 
She accuses him of being cocky but she discovers he is not just bragging. He is very good at his job. From the start they find each other mutually attractive physically and a short time later, in personality.
Despite his vow to himself to resist, Jeff finds himself more attracted to her every day they spend together. Gail, for her part, does not make his resistance easy. She torments and teases him continuously.
Despite his protection, will she be killed or will he find the ultimate source of the threats? How will he deal with it if he does?

review for Topaz Eyes by Nancy Jardine

Topaz Eyes
by Nancy Jardine

A peculiar invitation to Heidelberg embroils Keira Drummond in the search for a mysterious collection of extraordinary jewels once owned by a Mughal Emperor; a hoard that was last known to be in the possession of Amsterdam resident, Geertje Hoogeveen, in 1910.
Who among the progeny of Geertje- hitherto unfamiliar third cousins brought together for the quest - can Keira rely on? Distrust and suspicion among them is rife.
Which one is greedy, and determined enough, to hire thugs to tail her… and worse… as she travels to Vienna and Minnesota? Can Keira even trust Teun Zeger - a Californian she is becoming very drawn to - as they pair up to unearth the jewellery?
As they follow a trail of clues, will they uncover the full collection before the hired gun kills them? Details remain furtive and undisclosed until danger and death forces their exposé. And who harbours the ultimate mystery item that is even more precious than the Mughal jewels?
Greed, suspicion and murder are balanced by growing family loyalty, trust, and love.

Have to say this book had my head spinning trying to keep up with this person or that person this place then that place this book keep me on my toes and my mind (lol).. This book big time page-turn fast read great plot..
This book had it all mystery,action, romance. With family jewels, tons secrets...

Michael D. Dennis




A Native’s Tongue is about a young man trying to find his way in the world. He struggles to keep the woman he loves while entangled in the sex, drugs, and tragedy of Los Angeles. It was inspired by real events,” says Dennis.

Love and tragedy collide in Dennis’s poignant new novel, A Native’s Tongue.

Charlie Winters has never been an overachiever. He is used to just getting by while living with his single mother and working a dead-end job at a cheesesteak stand. Meanwhile, he’s constantly grappling with the voice of his sister, who died in a tragic car accident years earlier, echoing in his head.

So when Violet, an older woman, sets her sights on Charlie and refuses to let go, he follows along. He soon finds himself immersed in a destructive relationship that still fails to fill the void within him.

But then he meets Jennifer, a mystical young woman whose energy and life convinces Charlie to pursue her, even through the darkest corners of Los Angeles, and sets their lives upon a path that can’t be stopped.

Escaping to the California coast, Charlie and Jennifer finally find what they’ve always needed. But a sudden illness quickly pulls them both back to LA. It is there, amid the sex, drugs, and split-second decisions that pulse through the city, that tragedy strikes—threatening to tear Charlie and Jennifer apart forever.

A Native’s Tongue is available for sale on Amazon in ebook and paperback, and on Barnes & Noble


Excerpt:


In the cool air, her skin tightened. Jennifer shivered and wished she were somewhere warmer. Seeing Violet for the first time was going to be hard enough. She was going to look the woman she hated most in the world in the eye. She didn’t want to be shaking from the cold and covered in goose bumps.
Jennifer peered through the bulletproof glass at Violet. There were markings embedded in the glass, swirls that made it harder to look directly into Violet’s eyes. Jennifer picked up the phone and listened. Violet grabbed it and began to speak, “It was never you that he loved. You know that right?” Violet’s voice was raspy.
Her expressions and mannerisms changed from static to fully engaged. She stood up and waved her hands maniacally at Jennifer, and then she slammed her fist against the glass.

Jennifer hung up the phone. Her blonde hair got caught in between her hand and the receiver as she placed it back on the black hook. Turning, she slid out of the red plastic chair and down the corridor, guided by the exit sign’s green light. In the stale air of the prison, she searched for a pack of cigarettes, unsheathed a Parliament, lit it, and smoked nervously.

The story fits together like puzzle. YES there is a love story in this story ! Chessa falls in love with a janitor who turns out to be more than she expects ! It would be nice to see a second book. I love Samantha Combs novels, so well written! The pages turn as fast as you can read. Wingspan is full of suspense and will keep you on your toes. Science at its best!

On his mission he is to act like a handy man at a condo, ran by two sisters Ava and Brianna . Not knowing which sister is his mission he felt an unexpected bond and feelings for one sister but soon knew his mission from god was to save Ava's sister Brianna's human soul. 
   
 Heavens sacrifice was a book that was awesome from the heavens. I loved it. The bond that "Paul" and Ava found in each other was heart warming and in chanting. The author did a wonderful job. I would read more from this author.

Review Feeling Lucky by Kathy Bryson

Megan O'Malley got drunk at her cousins Wedding Reception. As one of the bands men walked by her she grabbed his butt and squeezed.
Because he is a Leprechaun that is considered catching a Leprechaun!
So now she has his 5 million and himself. What will she do with all that money? What about Fergus O'Reilly he is trying so hard to get her to say a phrase that will release him  and his money. Megan is much smarter than that and proceeds to give away the money. Fergus is beyond upset in this new development. Enter in the picture Fairies and bad blood things will never be the same for the small town or Megan & Fergus.
The Premise of this book was great. BUT my eyes crossed & I lost interest through most of this book. I don't want to know every detail it takes to set up a Funding Program. Most of the book was very detailed on this. If you want to know every detail it takes to set up a Funded Program this book is for you. If you are looking for a book that will keep your attention and focus on the characters, This is not the book for you.

Review of The Black Door by Charlotte Howard

The Black Door
by Charlotte Howard

Imogen Pearce is a single mum of four children and fast approaching 40, she works at Ryedale Incorporated where she has to battle a younger and smarter generation to get to where she wants to go. If that means taking on the account of Cherry and Sean Rubin’s adult shop, then she will. But what happens when Imogen discovers the private club that they run at the back? And what happens when she realizes she knows quite a few members?

What can I say about this book.. It pulled me right in from the first page.. It was like living in imogen shoes walking right with her.. It had me crying and screaming -yelling and pissed off and laughing my ass off from chapter to chapter.  this book was amazing and well-done.. pack full of hot and sexy playtime too..
