Seeds of Foreverland Tony Bertauski

Seeds of Foreverland (Foreverland, #0.5)Seeds of Foreverland by Tony Bertauski
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Harold was a smart kid who came from a messed up family. Each day his parents worked in the basement looking for a cure to his mother's illness until one day it happened, the world as Harold knew it crashed to the ground at the bottom of the basement steps and was never the same again. This was a quick read filled with mystery, science, and the overall emotional frustration of the character having to deal with bullies and his mother's illness. If you like science fiction then you might find this book interesting, but since it is an origin story, it is missing some needed suspense.  The main character carried this book entirely on his shoulders and while his part was fantastic the supporting characters lacked depth and drag the story down with vague conversations and lack of presence until the end and by that time it was too late the story was over. I would recommend this book for science fiction fans and I hope I can continue with the Foreverland trilogy, so I can fully understand the path this author was trying to take with this universe.

Taken by Lies: Rage Ryderz MC by Liberty Parker

Taken by Lies: Rage Ryderz MCTaken by Lies: Rage Ryderz MC by Liberty Parker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wasp had it all a lovely wife and a beautiful daughter, but unlike most members of the MC he requested that they be kept out of the main business of the club and for good reason because they were taken from him and he spent a lifetime looking for them. Meanwhile, his daughter grew up in a home where her stepfather hated her and she longed for escape, she found it in the arms of Kid her best friend's little brother. Everything was going along fine until the true identity and intentions of her stepfather were revealed then all Hell broke loose. There are two kinds of romance novels, one where the intercourse is part of the narrative and one where the sex is so intense that it overpowers the story and becomes a story in of itself. Not that there is anything wrong with the latter each type has its place in the romantic universe and are both good in their own way. If you are looking for hot sex with an interesting, suspenseful plot thrown in for good measure, then this book is for you if you are more into the subtle side of romance, then this one might be a bit heavy for your liking. The characters are well thought out and believable the sex is intense and the action while it takes a bit to get going is well with the wait and I look forward to continuing learning about these individuals.

Double Crossed by Colbie Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Victoria hates her life she has always been the good girl doing what she was told until that fateful day when she ran into Snake. Tall, handsome, and tattooed he was just too bad to resist the temptation. What happened next was like a fairy tale at first everything was perfect love seemed to be endless then she was betrayed, and instantly her heart was broken. So what does she do, Victoria moves on with her life, but nothing will ever compare to what she had with Snake. Will she ever find love again or will she be forced to wonder what if for the rest of her life? You will just have to read this wonderful romance to find out. The sex in this story is tactful and we'll write it is woven into the story well and is part of the narrative instead of being the main focus. I would recommend this to any romance lover who wants a solid quick read with, a lifetime lived, a lover lost, and found again. This book is filled with an emotional roller coaster that will keep you turning the pages all night and make it so you want to start it all over as soon as you are done.

Greeth by Charles LaFave

GreethGreeth by Charles LaFave
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The survival of the entire world is in the hands of a disgraced Wizard who has the ability to create life in inanimate objects. Can Peter Buraku, and his former lover beat, the God who wants to consume this world? Or will all the possessed bugs on earth devour everything? You will just have to read this unusual book to find out. The characters in this book are all well thought out and believable the pain and frustration of Peter comes across very well. There are a lot of times where there is so much action going on that the basic story line becomes a bit hard to follow, but, this does not affect the overall enjoyment of the story. The author's underlying message seems to be that, people's greed for material things in our world is literally eating us alive and he portrays this idea masterfully in this sci-fi fantasy adventure filled with wizards, assassins, monsters and Gods. This is a must read for any science fiction or fantasy lover who likes non stop action, deeper meaning and, a bit of heart thrown in just to keep you on your toes.

RRP: $2.99

💉Praise for In Their Shoes - The Nurse💉

"The Nurse captures and intensifies the chaos and bureaucracy of working in the health service. It will reduce the reader to tears of outrage, shock and hilarity!" - Jo Taylor, Student Nurse, UK"

"F*cking BRUTAL, and piss-funny!" - Stephen Lockeridge (book critic)

It’ll take a bucket-load of guts, heart and patients to survive this one!

The inpatients are getting impatient.
The psychiatric ward is losing its mind.
The maternity ward is suffering a midwife crisis.

Welcome to the graveyard shift at Shotterlay General Hospital.
It’s chucking-out time at the bars on Valentine’s weekend, and chucking up time down at the hospital. The poor, sick and infirm in the waiting area are revolting… in more ways than one! Soon, Shotterlay’s Accident & Emergency department won’t be so much A-OK, as DOA.

None of this will stop Sangita Gallagher, though. She’s the hospital’s charge nurse and runs an incredibly tight ship; expediently plugging holes in the paperwork, shift patterns and her patients’ gory wounds.

Tonight’s medical mayhem will be journalist Joy Attwood’s toughest assignment yet. It’ll involve copious amounts of violence, blood, vomit, mucus, amniotic fluid, lacerations, fractures, amputations, heart attacks, fornication and pulling things out of unwashed bottoms.

It’s absolute chaos and should really come with a trigger warning!
If you love British humor, satire and gross-out farce (think John Cleese, Helen Fielding, Tom Sharpe, Kurt Vonnegut and Imogen Edwards-Jones) then you cannot afford to miss out on In Their Shoes - The Nurse!

Incarnation By Devin O'Branagan

incarnation by devin o'branaganIncarnation  by Devin O'Branagan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maggie was the pilot of a ship on a mission to observe a cultural rebirth of a messiah on a neighboring planet. What she did not realize was that she and the other members of the expedition were part of a bigger story. This is a tale of faith that has been told and retold for generations and which will be told forever no matter how hard authority figures try to stop it.

This is a fantastic story about faith, forgiveness, and the power of God to always find a way to reach us no matter where we are in time or space. I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking more from this life or wondering if God is truly out there. This book is masterfully written. It reminds us that God is a relationship and not a religion. Therefore, it does not matter if religion is banned because all you need is your personal faith in something bigger than any of us and its power to make everything all right despite the hardships involved in doing so.

Dominance: An Erotic Romance by Devin O'Branagan

Dominance: An Erotic RomanceDominance: An Erotic Romance by Devin O'Branagan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Conor Fitzgerald was a broken man, a fact hidden from the casual observer. Outwardly, he was a true Dominant. After his wife died, he made it his mission to heal sexually broken women in a desperate attempt to do for them what he couldn't do for his wife. What he didn't realize was that through the simple act of helping others he was also helping himself. Deep emotional feeling was unlocked after years of holding it inside. Read this journey of discovery as Conor finally closes one chapter of his life so he can start a new one free from the guilt that held him emotionally trapped for years.

This is a fantastic emotional journey filled with love, sacrifice, and mystery, which will leave you satisfied well after turning the last page. The journey of Conor is one that many emotionally broken people have traveled. This author has once again captured the essence of the human soul and laid it out in a masterfully told tale of love, loss, and most importantly, healing. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes hot and heavy romance filled with self-discovery and emotional response.

Review of Innocence Taken: A Billionaire BDSM Erotic Romance by Devin O'Branagan

Innocence Taken: A Billionaire BDSM Erotic RomanceInnocence Taken: A Billionaire BDSM Erotic Romance by Devin O'Branagan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Desperate to find her younger sister, Angeline hires Cody, a private investigator. He follows a trail to her last place of work, a local brothel shrouded in mystery and lace, where the leads seem to vanish. This club is definitely not a place for a respectable lady, but despite the many dangers she may face, Angeline decides the only way to save her sister is to work at the brothel herself. Haunted by the past and lost in the passion of the present, Angeline is forced to look deep inside to find what she is truly looking for. This is a hot and heavy thriller mystery with a deep message about the power of love. Love can bring you a better understanding of your past so you can become a better person in the future. This book has a lot of hot sensual scenes, but each one has an interesting underlying cause that will leave you nodding your head in agreement. If you like mysteries with a passionate naughty flair then this book is for you. I found it to be a well-rounded story with a quick pace and defined characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who is not offended by sex and likes a good quick read.

Michael Phillip Cash Reviews

The FlipThe Flip by Michael Phillip Cash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

On the way home from a successful flip, Julie and Brad Evens come across an old Victorian home for sale. From the moment, she saw it Julie was in love, despite Brad's misgivings about the property they take a leap of faith and buy it. What they find inside is more than their relationship and nerves bargained for.
Once again, I am on the fence with another book from this author. I read this book quickly because it flowed well and the characters were unique and moved the story in the general direction it was supposed to go. That said there was a set of pivotal characters called the sentinels. They were the guardians everything and seemed to play a very important role, but they were only mentioned in passing and were not developed. Readers of this book are left hanging wondering who or what they are and why they are influencing the life or death direction of the main characters in the story. The beginning starts strong but seems to lose focus at the last few wrap-up chapters and floats to the finish line. Would I recommend this book? Yes, I found it very enjoyable but I do not find myself wanting to re-read it. If you like ghost stories, real estate flipping, or a fast read which is mildly intriguing then try this book because the underlining message is a good one; Love conquers all you just have to smart enough to recognize it.

Witches Protection ProgramWitches Protection Program by Michael Phillip Cash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After messing up on the job and losing a prisoner, Wes was given one last chance by the chief who was also his father. He was assigned to an obscure department who's sole purpose was to provide protection to witches. When he started it was all he could to finish the task then get out of there but what he found out surprised him so much he could not let go.
This is a must read for fans of witches, this author, or a good fast paced book with well-developed characters, and rounded plot line. It was funny, witty, and action-packed. I found myself wanting to read it again as soon as I was finished. Well, worth the read I highly recommend this book.

PokergeistPokergeist by Michael Phillip Cash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All Clutch ever wanted to do was win the International poker competition to once and for all prove to his grandfather he was the best. In the final round, It can me down to just him and the "Ant". He thought he was going to finally win the gold bracelet when tragedy struck. After that, his life was never the same, mainly because he was dead. He thought his dream had died with him until a young wannabe poker player crossed his path and made a wish that would bind them together. Along the way, they both learn a lot about themselves and what life truly means.
This is a wonderful book which lives up to its title it is fun, heartfelt and well-rounded the whole story flowed well. The characters were well balanced and believable. The ending was satisfying and there were no loose ends. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes funny books, ghost stories or tales where the underling comes out on top.
