Bodies on Raw by Marisa Ignacio Hormel

Bodies on RawBodies on Raw by Marisa Ignacio Hormel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is a collection of testimonials gathered together to highlight the power of a naturalist lifestyle. The individuals in this book were sick and run down so they switch to a raw food diet. The group found that if they stoped poisoning their bodies with processed food and ate raw fruit, vegetables, and nuts instead they felt better on the inside and therefore felt better on the outside.
I originally requested this book because my husband was very sick, he had high blood pressure, low testosterone, he was gaining weight exponentially despite counting calories, he had sleep apnea, and Hidradenitis Suppurativa so bad he had to have surgery to remove two masses from his legs. Since cutting all grains and dairy from his diet, drinking only water, eating pineapple for breakfast, blueberries for lunch and organic chicken with avocado for dinner the blood pressure has decreased, the HS inflation is less, the sleep apnea happens less often, he has more free testosterone, and he has even started to lose weight instead of gaining it. I have seen first hand how a raw diet can help someone. I truly believe that if raw fruit, vegetables, and nuts were more affordable than processed foods instead of being more expensive than more people would choose a natural raw diet instead and their bodies would be better off for it. Overall, this is an inspirational book is filled with bodies, helpful insights, and motivational thinking. It is well written and the photos while they are of nude bodies are very tastefully done and portray the theme of this book very artistically. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about starting a raw diet or needs a little encouragement to continue on their current raw path. I think this book would beter as a physical book then a digital one as some of the photos are large and the insperational quotes included are hard to read as white text on a black background. I had to turn off my screen everytime my children walked into the room.

Riding Lightning by Erin R. Bedford and J.A. Cipriano

Riding Lightning (Starcrossed Dragons Book 1)Riding Lightning by Erin R. Bedford and J.A. Cipriano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maya a dragon shape shifter, has always been a total disappointment to her father the dragon king so much so that he had her banished to earth, where she was left to fend for herself for five years. That is until her cousin came to fetch her back home because her sister was found to be barren and for a dragon this is a terrible fate. When Maya arrives, she finds her father has already chosen two suitors for her, leaving her to choose between them. Instead of letting her visit with her mother and sister, her father instantly demands that Maya and her potential mates all go on a quest to a neighboring country to get a treaty signed. Along the way Maya finds more than she bargained for including another suitor.
The only thing hotter than three sexy dragons vying for the right to breed with you, is this book. This book is filled with believable characters, fast paced dragon fights, and hot sex that will leave you longing for more. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes shape shifters, fantasy, romance, and a bit of love verses lust drama.

The Oscillator by J. K. Neve

The OscillatorThe Oscillator by J.K. Neve
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Theo is an average kid in an extreme world filled with harsh environmental issues and a group of bullies who will not leave him alone. The only ray of sunshine that does not burn his skin just his heart strings is Mel. Despite being part of the cool crowd Theo finds out that she is more down to earth than he previously thought. Torn between who he was and who he becoming he finds himself in an endless loop just like the mysterious oscillator he found in his backpack until it explodes in an electrifying experience. This is one of the best science fiction, fantasy books I have read in a while it is well worth the read and highly enjoyable. The characters are believable, the story is fast paced and full of emotion. I would recommend this book to everyone. I just wish that there was a bit less foul langue not that it was bad I just cannot share this fantastic book with my children and that is a shame because I believe they would enjoy it as much as I did.

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



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.

💉In Their Shoes Book 5 The Nurse💉

RRP: $2.99
Or FREE with your Kindle Unlimited subscription

💉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.
