Tide Up, Tide Down

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: eBook

Rating: 5 Stars

     Okay if you're following this series you know that Kade was dumped in Cowgirl Up and Ride by Skylar after going out with her a few month by pretending to be his twin brother Kane. Well this is his story and it is heart braking to find out that he didn't know he was a daddy and that his baby was a couple months old.

     In this story as much as Skylar wants to be with him she is afraid he's with her out of a sense of obligation. What she doesn't know is that his pretending to be his brother to be with her was in a way his way of wanting to be with her. As the story progress and she realizes this she is torn between wanting to believe her heart and wanting to believe her mind, which tells her to finish all between them.

     I think is sad when someone wants to be happy but there is always something impeding them. No matter if is their own self.

This book had me on edge from page one. I had like a casillion theories and none were close to the truth!! This is truly a suspense book.

     It was very intriguing that the author let us in in a small part of the mystery. Into the scene that started it all but without even a hint as to why or who made the killings. Also even that there was a lot of evidence pointing to the fact that the former Chief of police was involved and that it didn't came as a surprise it was all meticulously done as to not give us a single hint as to the real culprit.

     I was also desperate to know what was the damn secret that Savannah was keeping from Zach. I had an idea of what might have been that kept coming to me in a variety of forms but I always rejected it. I didn't even thought of what actually happened.

     This book was genius and well executed. I will be eagerly awaiting on Samantha's book.

Review: Immortals by Ednah Walters

Series: Runes (#2)
Published by: Firetrail Publishing

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal
Format: eBook
Source: Author

Rating: 5 Stars

     Like all Ednah's (E. B.) Walters books I LOVED  this second installment to the Runes series. It had me captured from the first page and I couldn't let go of it 'til I was finished with it. There are a whole lot of revelations that surprised the heck out of me. Who knew one simple girl could attract so many supernatural beings her way.

     This book was full of action and the story line is to die for. I can't wait for the next one. See what happens with Torin and Raine, Eirik and Cora, and what other things are in store for this characters. I still can believe that thing about Eirik!

     I can recommend this read for anybody who likes paranormal and YA. You won't regret it.

      Great beginning to a new series.

     This book had me on the edge of my sit the whole time. I've being unconsciously reading lately books where the hero is a rock star and it's really getting to me. This rock stars are HOT!

     What stayed with me from this book was the scene at almost the end when Maggie's ex finds her and he wants to punish her, that last words before the next chapter, what he wanted to do. Many a woman that are abused don't have a knight in shining armor to come to the rescue and have to suffer this kind of abuse.

     And it is really awful what they choose to keep quiet because they are afraid. This story just made me glad that everything is not so bad in the world and that even if it's make believe there are victims that find their HEA.

     I can't wait for the next book and I hope for an awesome story as this one was for Jake and Raine.

Review: Second Hand by Heidi Cullinan and Marie Sexton

Rating: 4 Stars

     In this story we have Paul (1st person POV), who is struggling to make ends meet when his girlfriend of 7, 8 years leaves him for an art professor. He is psychologically affected by all this because he thinks he's not good enough for anybody.

     When Emanuel enters the picture it will take all he has to make Paul aware of his appeal and that he has the charm and wit to hold his own on the dating pool. But when El starts to let Paul know how he feels and Paul can't take it, it might all come to an end.

     It takes just a maternal push for Paul to know what he has with El is a really good thing and that what matters is not who you love but that, that love is true and lasting.

     I really loved this story because it reminded me of my brother-in-law and how much he struggled because he didn't had the support of the family that should have being there for him. I knew he was gay from the first time I met him but it was plain to me that his family was homophobic and it didn't help that his father (who didn't know at the time he was gay) and his mother (who DID know) made remarks like "that fucking gay" and stuff like that.

     It is really sad when family don't support their gay members or when they might have a suspicion but don't want it to be true. I have an uncle that is like that with his son although we (the rest of the family) know how it is.

     I'm always happy to know when men like that (gay) are supported and loved, like an other uncle's "sister"-in-law. And I say sister because she's transsexual.

     So all in all I love the story and the dynamic of the characters and Paul's and El's parents for being supportive about it.

Thanks and have a great day!
