Keaton Bridge is one hundred percent bad boy.
Cassie doesn’t need a boy and certainly not a bad one. Nope. She fights crime for a living, and everything about this guy screams trouble, from his charming British accent to his mysterious past.
And Cassie doesn’t do trouble.
Keaton’s got his own trouble. He’s trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility.
All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can’t imagine living happily ever after without her.
All they have to do is walk away.
But neither of them ever walks away from a challenge.

Happy reading.

Description

 

From the master of British Crime Writing comes Frank Elder’s last case.

‘The heavy manacles around the girl’s wrists, perhaps not surprisingly, looked very much like the ones that had been found on the studio floor. For a moment, she had a vision of the chain to which they were attached being swung through the air, taking on force and speed before striking home.Then swung again.’

When his estranged daughter Katherine appears on his doorstep, ex-Detective Frank Elder knows that something is wrong.

Katherine has long been troubled, and Elder has always felt powerless to help her.

But now Katherine has begun to self-destruct.

The breakdown of her affair with a controversial artist has sent her into a tailspin which culminates in murder.

And as Elder struggles to protect his daughter and prove her innocence, the terrors of the past threaten them both once more …

Review

Rating: 4.5 stars

This book and review contain possible triggers with sexual assault and self harm being part of the story.

The writing experience of John Harvey is evident in the well penned tense, dark journey of a father out to protect his troubled daughter.

This is a well crafted, nicely paced and exciting thriller that had me invested from very early on. (after a slightly slow beginning the story gains a far more enjoyable pace!)

I have not read any of the previous books in the Frank Elder series and there were points that I felt it would have been advantageous to have read others in the series but overall it did not stop me from thoroughly enjoying this story.

Franks daughter, Katherine, has had a tough journey that includes a rape when she was a teenager and a history of self harm. Understandably she is a complex character and a complex yet well explained plot is woven around his need to  prove her innocent of committing the murder of the artist that she was modelling for and seeing romantically by investigating the crime. He also needs to protect his daughter from the man who raped her when she was in her teens and has now escaped from incarceration, proving to still be a very real threat.

I won’t give details of the ending but will say that it doesn’t disappoint.

I would like to thank John Harvey, Cornerstone, Penguin Random House Publishers and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of Body and Soul.

Star Witch (The Lazy Girls Guide to Magic Book 2) review..

Description

Lights. Camera. Inaction. 

Ivy Wilde, the laziest witch in the West, is still entangled with the Hallowed Order of Magical Enlightenment. That’s not a bad thing, however, because it gives her plenty of excuses to spend more time with sapphire eyed Raphael Winter, her supposed nemesis. And when he comes knocking because he needs her to spy on the latest series of Enchantment, she jumps at the chance. Hanging around a film set can’t be hard … or dangerous … right?

Review

Rating: 5 stars

This is our second meeting with Ivy and after the wonderfully funny and enjoyable first book  Slouch Witch I had high expectations. I am happy to say that this book more than lived up to those expectations.

Helen Harper has such a wonderful imagination and this book merges magic with reality TV.

There are deaths, disasters, surprises, and adventures galore when Ivy finds herself on the bracing Scottish set of her favourite TV show. I have a real soft spot for Raphael Winter and was so happy that he is a part of this book too.
This book is exactly what I wanted from the follow up to Slouch Witch. Witty and fun but also a well written mystery that happily kept me guessing.

With This Man. (book 4 in the This Man series.) By Jodi Ellen Malpas.

If you haven’t read the first 3 books in this series and you like a fantastic steamy romance then give this review a miss until you’ve discovered the Lord of the manor, Jesse Ward. (You won’t be disappointed)

WTM Teaser 2.28.jpg

Jesse Ward is back in the newest novel in the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling This Man series!

Life is good for Jesse ‘The Lord’ Ward. Perfect, actually. He still has the charm, he’s in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He’s in full control, just how he likes it.

But Jesse’s perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in hospital with a life-threatening head injury. Devastated and angry, he feels like his entire existence hangs in the balance. He cannot survive without this woman’s love. So when she finally comes around, his shaking world begins to level out. But his nightmare doesn’t end there. It’s only just begun. Because his wife can’t remember the last sixteen years of her life. That’s all of him. All of their time together. He is a stranger to her.

Now Jesse must do whatever it takes to find her memories . . . and help her fall madly, passionately in love with him all over again.

Review

Rating. 5 Stars

First off, if you haven’t read the first 3 books then please read them before picking up this one. This is a series that I don’t think can be read as a standalone.

Jesse and Ava are still happy (despite Jesse’s freak out about turning the big 5-0), completely in love and adore their family. The book opens on ‘central Jesse cloud 9’ that is until Jesse gets a phone call and goes on to discover that Ava has had a terrible accident. After several harrowing days Ava awakens from a coma to discover that she has no memory of the last 16 years of her life. No memory of Jesse and no memory of their twins Jacob and Maddie.

Without spoiling the book I will say that this is probably the best book of the series! That’s saying something because the This Man series had been fantastic from page 1. Jesse and Ava are not on this journey alone and we see plenty of the characters that we have grown familiar with throughout the series.
With This Man has highs, lows and heartbreak and is everything that we have come to expect from the hugely talented mind of Jodi Ellen Malpas. Start reading in 3, 2, 1…. zero baby.

My Book about Brains, Change and Dementia. Written by Lynda Moore and Illustrated by George Haddon. (Review)

ScreenHunter_214 Apr. 10 03.45

 

Expected publication: July 19th 2018 by Jessica Kingsley Publishers

 ScreenHunter_185 Mar. 31 12.07

Description

Sometimes, a person’s brain gets sick with a disease called dementia.’

What does dementia do to the brain? And how can we help if someone we know, like a parent or a grandparent, has the disease?

This book breaks down misconceptions about dementia and speaks directly to children aged under 5 about the realities of the disease, using age appropriate language in an engaging and informative way. It reassures parents of the value of open and honest conversation about the challenges raised by dementia and offers advice and support in the opening ‘Guide for grown ups’. It includes a diverse audience of characters, to emphasise that ANY child can be impacted by dementia in their loved ones. Unlike traditional storybooks, the ending provides a question for the adult and child reading it to ponder together.

Review

Rating: 5 Stars

This is an ideal book to help smaller children understand dementia and the impact that it can have on the person that has it. It also addresses how they may feel when someone they know has dementia and how to deal with those feelings.

The illustrations are colourful and fun. They are a clear visual representation of the written word.

I liked that prior to explaining that dementia can ultimately end in death the book gives the child the option of not reading those pages if they don’t want to know. (This can also be a helpful cut off point for the parent who does not feel their child is ready to hear about death)

The bite sized pieces of information are delivered in a compassionate, clear, child-friendly manner.

While this books target audience is the under 5’s I believe that it could be a useful explanation tool for children beyond age 5 too.

 

I was given a copy of this book by the Publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

I discovered this amazing series called The Vampire Awakenings series a couple of years ago. The Alliance series is a spin off of that series and this is book two. The first book in this series Eternally Bound was amazing. ***The Alliance Series is a spin-off of the Vampire Awakenings series. You do not have to read the Vampire Awakenings Series in order to follow the Alliance Series, but it is recommended.***

Description.

After her ex-boyfriend’s betrayal, revenge propels Vicky to find and destroy the man who sold her into captivity. The minute she gets the chance to search for Duke alone, she seizes the opportunity. When her hunt causes her to cross paths with Nathan, she finds herself secretly aligning with the one man she’s vowed to avoid.

Determined to hunt down the Savage who murdered his father, Nathan has told no one about his private search for Joseph. The night he runs into Vicky and learns she’s on her own quest, he reluctantly agrees to join forces with her to achieve his goal.

Bound by their driving need for vengeance, they soon find themselves unable to deny the attraction growing between them. As leader of the hunters, Nathan knows they would never accept his relationship with a vampire, but will he be able to let Vicky go, or will their growing love destroy them both?

***The Alliance Series is a spin-off of the Vampire Awakenings series. You do not have to read the Vampire Awakenings Series in order to follow the Alliance Series, but it is recommended.***

Recommended Reading order for The Alliance Series:
Eternally Bound (Book 1)
Bound by Vengeance (Book 2)

Due to violence, language, and sexual content this book is recommended for readers 18+

Rating:  5 Stars

I have read and loved every book in the Vampire Awakenings series and the first book in the Alliance series and I absolutely loved each one so what I am about to say is high praise indeed! This is my favourite yet.
Every book that I have mentioned above has had passion, adventure, excitement and I couldn’t get enough of them, this book has that all in abundance but it has managed to ratchet up the already high intensity and action and the passion. I was on tenterhooks so often that I lost count. I am absolutely loving this series. This book was incredible!
