Book Trailer: Aurora Rising - Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I am a HUGE fan of both Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff and I absolutely LOVE their Illuminae Files series so I'm embarrassed to admit that I never got around to reading Aurora Rising when it published last year. Especially since I preordered the hardback and it was one of my most anticipated reads of the 2019! I actually ended up with a weird kind of reading paralysis for anticipated books last year though, I was so scared of being disappointed that I put off reading several books that I'd been super excited about.

I'm happy to say that I'm now about halfway through Aurora Rising and loving it just as much as I thought I would. What with everything going on in the world right now I'm finding it difficult to concentrate on reading so I have been buddy reading this book with a couple of friends. We're reading it very slowly (aiming for 3 chapters a day) just trying to get back into the habit of reading again and it's been working really well because this is a book I actually want to go back to each day. I hope to have a proper review of this book up soon for you but in the meantime I wanted to share the book trailer and an interview I found with the authors discussing the series.

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling authors of The Illuminae Files comes a new science fiction epic...

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch...

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy's biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who's totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty's squad isn't even his biggest problem that'd be Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, the girl he's just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler's squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

NOBODY PANIC.

Review: Connections in Death - J.D. Robb

When recovering drug addict Lyle Pickering is found dead of an overdose, it looks like a tragic accident. But his sister Rochelle knows better, and so does Lieutenant Eve Dallas. Lyle was murdered, and the evidence points directly to his old street gang.

As Eve and husband Roarke track the killer through the city's dive bars, drug dens and strip joints, another body is discovered. With connections growing between the living and the dead, and the body count on the rise, Eve knows she needs to close this case fast, before the killer's lust for power turns the city's streets into a bloodbath.

Review:
When a recovering addict dies of an apparent overdose it should be simple to label it a case of accidental death and move on. But the victim's sister is convinced her brother wasn't using and from the evidence Eve is inclined to agree. As the bodies start piling up Eve soon finds herself trying to prevent an all out gang war.

The reviews for Connections in Death seem to be a bit hit and miss but I really enjoyed it. I know exactly what I'm going to get when I pick up a book in this series, there are certain things that happen in every book and I'm totally happy with that because it's become a total comfort read. I love the relationships between the all of the different characters, Roarke is a favourite book boyfriend but I also want to be friends with Eve, Peabody and Nadine and I want to have a cup of tea with Doctor Mira and listen to her words of wisdom.

J.D. Robb always keeps things fresh as far as the mystery goes so while I'll admit Eve figured things out pretty quickly in this book I still enjoyed the police procedural side of the story. I love seeing Eve and Peabody interviewing suspects too, especially when Peabody is allowed to go all out and play bad cop for a change.

March 2020 Recap


Hi everyone, I hope you're all surviving lockdown and staying safe. The world really feels quite upside down at the moment and I know for sure it's affecting my ability to concentrate. I was already in a bit of a reading and blogging slump and it definitely hasn't got any easier over the last couple of weeks. I'm struggling to even read a book right now, let alone deal with anything else. So anyway, it may be a little quieter around here than normal but I'm doing my best to get into a routine again so we'll see what happens in April.

The most important thing is that we all look out for each other and try to keep ourselves, our families and our friends safe. If you're able to stay home please do but to all of the essential workers who are out there looking out for the rest of us, from the emergency services to the delivery drivers to the shop workers and everyone in between I want to say thank you. You are appreciated and I hope that in the coming months you are rewarded for all your hard work!

Stay safe everyone!

    Review: Loving Liv - Stacey Kennedy

    USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy returns to the passion-filled world of Club Sin and Dirty Little Secrets with this novella featuring a slightly flawed Dom who has six days--and six very steamy nights--on a Caribbean cruise to convince an innocent woman from his past that maybe the best way for two broken people to find true love is to jump headfirst into the deep end of desire.

    Liv Sloane needs a vacation. After her cheating ex broke her heart--and their engagement--Liv never fully recovered. In fact, she's spent the past two years avoiding romance at all costs... with the exception of that sizzling one-night stand she can't seem to forget. So when her friends from college suggest a reunion cruise, Liv knows a relaxing week of sun, sand, and beach reads is exactly what she needs to clear her mind. But when they board the ship, Liv is hit with two surprises. Her friends accidentally booked a singles cruise, and her one-night stand is waiting on deck.

    Miles Schantz has spent the past three months thinking about Liv. As a Dom at one of the hottest sex clubs in Las Vegas, Miles has his pick of women... so why can't he get Liv out of his head? When he receives an email asking him to join Liv on a cruise, he can't believe his luck. But when he meets her on board--and she's completely unaware of her "invitation"-- Miles has to come up with a new plan. Six nights of no-strings-attached passion. Six nights of wild fantasies, sexy games, and forbidden adventures. Six nights to show Liv that she belongs with him...

    Five friends. One singles cruise. So many sexy shenanigans. Be sure to check out all of the standalone Gone Wild books!

    Review:
    Ever since Liv had her heart broken by her cheating fiancé she's sworn off men so this trip to hang out with her closest friends should be just what she needs. What she wasn't counting on is running into Miles though, the hottest one night stand of her life and a man who has been trying to get her to date him ever since.

    Miles hasn't been able to get Liv out of his head since their first encounter three months ago so when she emails him inviting him to join her on a cruise he jumps at the chance. He had no idea that it wasn't actually Liv who sent the email so they both get an unpleasant surprise when they first see each other again but now Liv is forced to spend time with him he's determined to make her see how good they could be together.

    Loving Liv is the fifth book in the Gone Wild series containing books written by Stacey Kennedy, Katee Robert, Piper J. Drake, Avery Flynn and Robin Covington. Each of the books stars a different member of a group of old college friends who are on a cruise trip hoping to reconnect and spend time together. This has been a really fun series that's helped me find a few new (to me) authors to add to my to read mountain and I'm definitely planning on reading Stacey Kennedy's Club Sin & Dirty Little Secrets series as soon as possible.

    This book was definitely the hottest of the series and I loved every minute of it. Liv is very attracted to Miles but she is so convinced their relationship couldn't possibly work that she isn't willing to give him a chance. She was badly burnt by her ex and is determined to never let herself get into that situation again. A relationship with Miles just makes no sense to her, not only is he a Dom who runs a sex club while she's totally vanilla, he's also so out of her league that it's ridiculous and they don't even live in the same state. Miles on the other hand thinks they'll be perfect together, he's spent enough time around beautiful women to recognise insane chemistry when he feels it and he knows that Liv isn't quite as vanilla as she thinks she is. All he's got to do is prove it to her.

    I thought Liv and Miles made a great couple and their chemistry was insanely good, Liv had no idea how much she'd enjoy her time with Miles but she's still running scared. It's not going to be easy to convince her to give love another chance but hopefully she'll be brave enough to try. This book also has cameo appearances from quite a few couples from the Club Sin series as well as Allie and Micha from Bound Beneath His Pain which I'm sure fans will appreciate and it definitely made me want to read more of Stacey Kennedy's books in the future.

    Review: Attracting Aubrey - Avery Flynn

    I never dreamed I’d meet my celebrity crush while stealing every single pair of my best friend’s pants.

    Trust me, my life is not that wild. In fact, the most excitement I usually get is running my fan-favorite Insta thirst account featuring butt-tastic pics of Hollywood superhero Carter Hayes. So, imagine my shock when, in the middle of the cruise ship hallway, I realize the guy whose shirt I'm stuffing slacks inside of is Carter disguised as a tourist. How I manage not to faint dead away, I've got no clue.

    When word leaks that Carter might be on board, he asks me to help him maintain his cover. There’s no way I’m gonna say no to that. I just don't share that I’m the anonymous woman behind the fan account that reported sighting him onboard. No biggie. Right?

    However, when things between us go from friendly to hot to OMG-I-can’t-keep-my-clothes-on-around-him, all I can do is hope he never discovers my secret. You see, somewhere along the way, Carter went from an untouchable movie star to the man I’m falling for.

    Five friends. One singles cruise. So many sexy shenanigans. Be sure to check out all of the standalone Gone Wild books!

    Review:
    Aubrey's life hasn't turned out the way she expected, she's back living in her small hometown helping run her grandmother's bakery even though she has zero skills in the kitchen, and her dreams of becoming a writer seem further away than ever. For fun she runs a celebrity fan account posting pictures of her favourite actor on Instagram but never in a million years did she expect to actually meet him.

    Carter is a Hollywood heartthrob who plays an extremely popular superhero but he doesn't want to get pigeonholed into one type of role. He's been trying to convince a director to give him a chance at a more serious part but they're worried fans won't see past his superhero character. If he can spend the entire week on this cruise without anyone uncovering his true identity then he might just have a chance at the job of a lifetime, but he didn't count on running straight into a superfan who could easily blow his cover.

    Attracting Aubrey is the third book in the Gone Wild series containing books written by Avery Flynn, Katee Robert, Piper J. Drake, Robin Covington and Stacey Kennedy. Each of the books stars a different member of a group of old college friends who are on a cruise trip hoping to reconnect and spend time together. This has been a really fun series that's helped me find a few new (to me) authors to add to my to read mountain.

    This was a really fun and light hearted romance, I thought Aubrey and Carter were both great characters and it was hilarious seeing how tongue tied she was when she first met someone that she's spent years lusting after from a distance. Carter was actually really down to earth for someone so famous and it was obvious that he was enjoying being out of the spotlight and not mobbed by fans. I did appreciate that he came clean about his identity to Aubrey very quickly so there was no deception on his part though, it must be hard to trust in that kind of situation but he didn't want to spend time together based on a lie. I did feel like Aubrey could have been upfront more quickly about her fan account but there were several times she tried to broach the subject and he kept changing the subject so it wasn't all her fault. Either way they were a very cute couple and I was happy with how everything worked out in the end.

    I'd quite like to read a story about Carter's brother but in the meantime I definitely plan to check out some of the other books that are set in Avery's hometown of Salvation: The Sweet Salvation Brewery Series (Enemies on Tap, Hollywood on Tap & Trouble on Tap) and the standalone titles Betting the Billionaire and Balls Out.

    Review:
    When Eve is called to the scene of a suicide bombing nobody can understand why a well respected family man suddenly decided to kill eleven people. But then they discover his wife and child tied up in their home and it all becomes clear, Paul Rogan was given the terrible choice between setting off a bomb, killing himself and his colleagues, or watching as his family was tortured and killed. Paul did something unthinkable but at the same time he, and his family, were also victims and now Eve will be the one to get them justice. When a second bomb is detonated Eve quickly realises that the killers aren't going to stop but it's now a race to figure out who the next target could be and why.

    It's no secret that I'm totally addicted to this series, I can't get enough of these books and I'm getting nervous now that I've nearly caught up to the latest release and I'm soon going to have to start waiting for the next release just like all the other fans of these books. It's great that J.D. Robb writes so fast but I can't believe I'm saying that 50 books is not enough for this series! Anyway, this was another interesting case and I loved that we got to spend so much time with Eve and Roarke in this one. They're such a fab couple and I love it when they're working together.

    There were some really sweet / funny moments with Bella, especially her name for Summerset, but what I enjoyed most was seeing how far Eve has come in her friendships. This is the second book in a row where she goes out of her way to do something really special for Peabody and McNab and it's just not the kind of thing that Eve from book one would have ever thought about. The epilogue was brilliant, a great way for Eve to be involved with a certain celebration without having to step into the spotlight. I've already started reading the next book, there is just no stopping me at this point!

    Review: Primal Sin - Ariana Nash

    Fallen for love. Risen for revenge.

    Severn knows love. He knows how it feels to fight for love, and have it torn from his reach. He knows that when the killing fields are strewn with the dead, and love is all gone, only one thing keeps his demon heart beating:

    Vengeance.

    His life is now a web of lies. His act, a perfect one. His enemy, the guardian angel Mikhail, sits beside him, turns to him for guidance, and even loves him.

    The time has come to make all the angels fall, beginning with the most powerful of them all.

    Severn thought he knew love. But he’s about to discover that love takes no prisoners, and as demons and angels clash over London’s battle-weary streets, love will claim the souls of two destined enemies.

    Primal Sin is a dark gay fantasy with a strong love-story. The series is brimming with savage desires, relentless lies and the bite of vengeance and is not for anyone easily disturbed by graphic scenes.

    Review:
    For decades angels and demons have waged war on the streets of London and the killing fields have left it unrecognisable. Angels live in the aerie, a huge towering structure ruled by Guardian Mikhail, and they consider themselves protectors of humans. Below the Aerie is the Cauldron, a dark and dangerous underworld where demons prey on the unsuspecting and anything can be purchased for the right price.

    Severn is Mikhail's right hand man, a fierce warrior respected by the rest of the angels and feared by demons, even though he lost his wings in battle and can no longer fly. But while Severn is seen as an ally he has ulterior motives and has spent the last decade planning is revenge against the person he blames for ruining his life. After Severn is brutally injured in battle once more Mikhail takes surprising steps to save his life and the bond that forms between them could be enough to doom the world.

    Ariana Nash never fails to rip out my heart and stomp it into teeny tiny pieces and I love it so much that I just keep coming back for more! Love, revenge, betrayal and heartbreak this book has it all and then some, I was hooked from beginning to end. We're only just starting to explore this world but already I want to know more and I enjoyed getting to know the characters too. Mikhail initially comes across as quite cold and unfeeling but under the surface he's a boiling pot full of emotion and in the end that might just be his downfall. Severn on the other hand is full of rage and hatred, and with very good reason, but he is also more than he originally seems and as his hate and lust combine his attitude completely changes.

    I honestly can't wait to see what happens next between these two, especially now a certain new character that appeared at the end of the book has been thrown into the mix. I know for sure that this is going to be a bumpy ride for everyone but I can't wait to enjoy the rollercoaster.
