EXCERPT

Gabriel's room.

She paused, peeking through the slightly closed door to the bed within. She had been in there once or twice when Gabriel had a new CD for her to download, or a book he’d recommended she read. He’d moved in a little over a year ago when Jackie and her boyfriend Ian had to get rid of their last roommate, who had almost set the couch on fire when he’d invited his loser friends over to get high. That guy had been crass, sloppy, and late on the rent more than a few times. Gabriel was none of those things. He had a relatively decent job at an employment recruiting firm while he saved up money to play music full time and get his own place. He tried to keep his messes inside his space, though he wasn't usually around much to make any. And if he did smoke, he had yet to set anything on fire.
He put all the guys she dated to shame and served as the image she used to relieve sexual tension more times than she could count. In her mind he was tender and sweet, touching her skin reverently, laying gentle kisses all over her body. He would take his time making her wet, unlike the last asshole she had gone out with who thought a few licks and a dry finger was all that was required before he could stick it in. Gabriel would know better, would ask her if she was ready and then ease himself in carefully. He would tell her he had been waiting so long for this moment as he stroked her into a frenzy, making her come over and over again with the power of his strong body and gentle words.
Just the thought of it made her body shiver, and before she knew it she was pushing open the door and stepping inside his personal space. Her body hummed just thinking about how he slept in that bed, the sheets rumpled and unmade from when he woke earlier that morning. She thought of the glimpse she caught of him when he came out of the shower. Those tattoos stood out red and black against the sides of his v-shaped torso, the towel riding low on his narrow hips.
Thank goodness he had been oblivious to the pair of brown eyes surveying him from over the edge of the couch.
Now she was standing where he had been when he closed that door. She let her hand run over the dresser as she walked quietly inside, her fingers tapping over his brush, his comb, the deodorant he used. She picked up the bottle of cologne he used and opened it, breathing in the intoxicating scent.
She put the cap back on, careful to place the bottle back where it belonged, and surveyed the rest of the room. Beside the dresser was a pretty nice entertainment center, and on the other side of that was his bookshelf. She had nearly creamed her panties when she found out it wasn't just for show, that he did in fact read when he got the chance, and that they shared similar taste in books. A ridiculously huge rack of CDs and his propped up guitar filled the far corner of the room. The walls were lined with posters of his favorite musicians, as well as mementos from shows he and his band played.
Below those posters was the bed, which was simple. It had metal rungs for the headboard with white sheets and a steel grey comforter. She could still see the indent of his body in the mattress, the curve in the center of the pillow where he rested his head each night. On either side of the bed were small tables with a few drawers each, where pictures of his family and friends rested. She was tempted to open up those drawers and see what he kept in them, but she resisted. She didn't intend to go snooping through his things. All she wanted to do was be in his space, to see the side of him she wasn't usually allowed to see, at least not for long periods of time. Instead she swept her hands over the sheets, letting her legs brush against them where they drooped to the floor.
Nicole wondered as she brought her knee up onto the bed what it must be like to be a girl in this bed with him. Did he sleep with a lot of girls? She knew of at least one girl when he first moved in, his ex-girlfriend Marta. At the time she asked herself what the fuck kind of name was Marta? In this case, it was the type of name a gorgeous half-Indian, half-Spanish girl would have, the kind with long dark hair, golden, almond-shaped eyes and a tall, lithe frame with curves in the all the right places. Her skin was rich toffee compared to Nicole's milk chocolate with red undertones, her height and build making Nicole feel like an overly curvy dwarf, even if she was average in terms of height, and her curves were welcomed by plenty.
What kind of girl did he sleep with now that his ex, Marta, was out of the picture? Nicole only got to visit her sister occasionally during breaks from school, so she never got to see exactly what kind of girl besides Marta could make Gabriel take a second look.
She brought her other knee onto the bed. Resting on all fours, she pretended she was that girl, the one that he wanted. What would it be like to have him lying in this bed next to her, his hips barely covered by these sheets? She crawled closer to the center of the bed, smiling seductively, pretending she was crawling toward a deliciously naked Gabriel instead of the cold indent of his body, when her knee landed hard on something tucked under the sheets. The sound of the TV turning on startled her, as did the image that popped up on the screen. Her mouth dropped, her eyes widened…

My review:

      If you meet Carol you will know that she is a perfect girl. Carol is on service to everyone: her mother, her sister, Zoe-foreign student from Toulouse she lives six years with Carol’s parents, to her friend even to Ben, her boyfriend. She is so committed to help everyone that she doesn’t have time for herself. Her sister Marley will marries and she suppose to help her in preparation. She is working in bank and, like you think so, she is workaholic. Ben working much lately and doesn’t have time as he should to spend with her. What will happen?  Will Carol stay like she is or she will burst someday?

      I was so excited when I receive this book and I’m still excited now when I read it. I like Michel books she has proved as great chick-lit author many times I have read two of her books: “ChristmasCarol” and “Single in the City” (click on links to read my reviews) and this is one great book too. I like the theme is profound and narrowed on some unique way with many humor.

      I like Carol so much because she is lovely and she wants to help to everyone. I don't like how she deals with her colleagues on work; I couldn’t tell you much about this because of spoilers. I was laugh when she helps to her best friend to choose a date. Carol is that kind of woman that every woman will identify with some of her reactions ridiculous or serious.

My rating 4/5(great book).

My review:
       Kaiya passes every night dealing with her difficult past. Every night she has nightmares, but every night and every day there with her is Camden, her older brother to protect her and beside him she feels safe. One day she decides to go with her brother in gym and there meet Ryker, with tattooed and athletic body. When she saw him feels shiver and big attraction. He becomes her trainer and instructor. He couldn’t stop thinking of her and he wonder why that is so, because he is womanizer and doesn’t have feelings about any woman. They both been hurt and they both are scared to live their lives in the normal way.
            Would love be enough or the ghosts from their past will stand                            between them?

         I read this book two days ago, but I’m still under impression of it. So powerful and great, so full of good thoughts and sentences this book is amazing. It contains violence and dark thoughts, but I enjoy read every single page of it. The author mix up many genres in very skilful and the result is amazing romance with thriller elements and erotic’s episodes.
        
      Kaiya is vulnerable and cautious. She doesn't commit and she is very careful when man is matter. When the ghosts from her past are awake she will become much cautious. I empathized with her and admired to her how she deals with the situation.
       
     Ryker is good looking man; every woman will fall for his body and look. I like how he loves and how he deals with his past and Kaiya’s past.
      
     Camden is great brother, protective and careful. I also like him very much.

     Kaiya and Camden’s mother is most unlikable person to me even more unlikable then …,you will know who if you read the book.

My rating 5/5 (amazing book)

Our Feature - Shooting Star Reviews

1. When did you start blogging?


I started blogging about a year and half ago. I had been reading constantly for the previous two years, and I found Goodreads and started writing reviews after a while. After that it all just kind of fell into place once I started my blog.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Getting to share the books I love! It's so much fun getting to talk about books constantly!

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?


There isn't a main type. I tend to lean more towards the romance genre with lots of sub genres such as contemporary, young adult, new adult, ect. But I really don't discriminate against certain books, unless it's horror. I normally can't do horror!

4. What are your favorite books?


Wow, that is a hard question. I have a lot of favorite books! I will only name a few though. The Gamble by Kristen Ashley, Fallen Crest High by Tijan, Strong by Kendal Waller, Sweet Seduction Shadow by Nicola Claire, and the Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep!

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?


Hmm, there have been a few good things that have happened because of it!
I've found a real true friend, Jme!
I found amazing books that help me escape.
And I've even found a job opportunity with a publishing company! :)

Question of the Week: Characters, sometimes our favorites, die during books. If you'd get to choose, who would you bring back? - Suggested byHowling for Books

I don't know I rarely read books where someone die.

Prisoner by Skye Warren and Annika Martin-book blitz

BlitzBanner

Prisoner
Annika Martin, Skye Warren
Publication date: October 23rd 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Cover

Synopsis: He seethes with raw power the first time I see him—pure tattooed menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He’s dangerous. He’s wild. He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets, too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I volunteered to teach and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it’s getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night, I can’t stop thinking about him in his cell.

But that’s the thing about an animal in a cage—you never know when he’ll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth, so you can’t call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can’t think.

And you might crave him more than your next breath.

The Kids from the River by Mark G. Cosman-review








Title: The Kids from the River
Author: Mark G. Cosman
Genre: Fiction
Pages: 200(e book)
buy this book at: Amazon





My review:
       Max, on ten years, wants to play in river with his friends Amy, James and other kids,sometimes but rarely Amy's older sister, Margo join them. They enjoy swimming in the river flew alongside the forest to the sea.
Max think that Amy is cute and has some unfamiliar feelings when she is near him. James is rich and spoiled kid, he wants to mocks other kids, especially those who are weaker of him and he wants Amy to admired to him. The years pass by and they are not kids anymore and they didn't share the same things anymore...
       
        I read this book quickly and I don't want to jump to conclusions, so I wait a little bit to think again about the book and my opinion is that this is great book. It's not easy there a described many years, there are many characters and many diferent points of life. I like how the author describes love on diferent age and how diferent people experiencing and manifest love, or what some people do for love. There are topics as family and friendships.
        
        I like Max, he is very strong character, I like his descriptions and thoughts of the others characters in the book. I was sorry for him and his mother when his father was angry.
I don't like James as kid, but I feel sorry for him when he grow up as very immature and vicious young man.
I don't know if I like Amy or not, in some part of the book I like her very much in other I don't know, but that is a stage of life which everyone must past.

This book was provided by the author.
