Glimpse My Thoughts:  OMG, there are no words for how touching this book is!  Praise to Sybil Bartel!  A new author but already a master at writing beautifully broken characthers!

Goodreads Synopsis:

Never apologize

Hard-edged rocker Graham Allen has it all. He's flush with cash from playing bass in a band by night and restoring classic cars by day. And there are plenty of women willing to share his bed for a night, complication-free. Perfect, because if there's anything he learned from his past, it was to never get attached—to anything. So when bartender Carly Sullivan flashes her innocent smile, Graham isn't prepared for what happens next.

Never fall in love

Two rules, that's all Graham has—never apologize and never fall in love. He knows Carly is everything he should avoid. Cheerful and sweet, she has "relationship" written all over her. But Graham can't stay away from her probing questions and concerned blue eyes.

When Graham discovers Carly is hiding a crushing secret, he's prepared to risk it all. Until in one single moment, everything changes and Graham's past threatens to collide with his future. His life is crumbling down around him, and soon no apology in the world can save him.

He should've known to walk away.

Genre:  Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
Rating:  3 Notes, 2 Flames

Goodreads Synopsis:

British vampire psychiatrist and former mercenary Cage Reynolds returns to Penton, Alabama, looking for a permanent home. The town has been ravaged by the ongoing vampire war and the shortage of untainted human blood, and now the vampires and humans that make up the Omega Force are trying to rebuild. Cage hopes to help the cause, put down roots in Penton, and resolve his relationship with Melissa Calvert. The last thing he expects is an attraction to Robin Ashton, a trash-talking eagle shape-shifter and new Omega recruit.

Meanwhile, as a dangerous saboteur wreaks havoc in Penton, the ruthless Vampire Tribunal leader Matthias Ludlam has been freed on the eve of his scheduled execution. But by whom? And to what end? As war and chaos rage on, love is the last thing Cage is looking for, but will his attraction to Robin distract him from the danger living among them?

This picture made me laugh. Nettie and I were just Googling the words to this song. We are not alone.

The Lion King will never be the same.

Sixth Grave on the Edge (Charley Davidson, #6)Title:  Sixth Grave on the Edge
Series:  Charley Davidson, Book 6
Author:  Darynda Jones
Narrator:  Lorelei King
Genre:  Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance
Rating:  5 Notes, 5 Flames

Glimpse My Thoughts:  Holy Crap-o-la!  Sixth Grave On the Edge was wrought with emerging abilities, new mysteries, crap-yo-pants LOL funnies, and a knock you up side your head shocker to end the book!  Can't wait until October to find out what happens next.

Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it's time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go wrong?

Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn't come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear.

Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she's used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow.

The Sweet Gum TreeTitle:  The Sweet Gum Tree
Author:  Katherine Allred
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Rating:  5 Notes, 3 Flames

Glimpse My Thoughts:  Look out Kristen Ashley, Katherine Allred just knocked you from my top spot in Contemporary Romance to #2.  The Sweet Gum Tree was full of tender sweet moments and gut wrenching misunderstandings but worth every minute.  For fans of Kristen Ashley's style of writing, Katherine Allred will be a breath of fresh air!

Goodreads Synopsis:
Sweet tea, corn bread, and soup beans—everyday fare for eight-year-old Alix French, the precocious darling of a respected southern family. But nothing was ordinary about the day she met ten-year-old Nick Anderson, a boy from the wrong side of town. Armed with only a tin of bee balm and steely determination, Alix treats the raw evidence of a recent beating that mars his back, an act that changes both of their lives forever.

Through childhood disasters and teenage woes they cling together as friendship turns to love. The future looks rosy until the fateful night when Frank Anderson, Nick's abusive father, is shot to death in his filthy trailer.

Suddenly, Nick is gone—leaving Alix alone, confused and pregnant. For the next fifteen years she wrestles with the pain of Nick's abandonment, a bad marriage, her family and friends. But finally, she's starting to get her life back together. Her divorce is almost final, her business is booming, and she's content if not happy—until the day she looks up and sees Nick standing across the counter. He's back…and he's not alone.

Once again Alix is plunged into turmoil and pain as Nick tries to win her love, something she resists with all her strength. Only one thing might break the protective wall she's built around her emotions—the truth about Frank Anderson's death. But when that truth comes out and those walls crumble, neither Alix nor Nick is prepared for the emotional explosion that could destroy as well as heal.

I don't know what's happened to you, Alix, but I never lied.  Not once.  And if it takes me the rest of my life, I'll make you care again.  That's a promise. ~Nick to Alix, The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred

8665113Title: Demon Song
Series: Blood Singer, Book 3
Author: Cat Adams
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Rating: 3 Notes

Goodreads Synopsis:

In a world where magic is real and the supernatural is almost normal, bodyguard Celia Graves has survived a vampire attack which made her a half-vampire and awakened her latent Siren abilities. She’s battled a Siren Queen to the death and twice faced down a demon that wants to kill her--slowly. She’s also had her heart broken--twice--by her old flame, magician Bruno DeLuca.

Perhaps the worst thing was the discovery that Celia’s life has been warped by a curse laid on her during childhood--the cause of everything from the death of her little sister to the murder of her best friend the same night that Celia became an Abomination.

Hola chickies!  I know you guys haven't really heard from us for a while.  We have been SUPER busy.  Me (Nettie) with planning my oldest son's high school graduation party and Celie starting a new job!  Whew Hoo!  Anywho.....we needed a vacation and thus a break from the blog.  Hopefully things will move back to normal around the 1st part of July. 

Tomorrow morning we head off for 4 days of Sunny Florida fun and one of my all time favorites.......Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure!  This will be Celie's first trip so I'm looking forward to rattling her chains about the many roller coasters, and giving her Shit about not being a Harry Potter Head!  Like Really who doesn't love the Potter?????

Anyway, keep your fingers crossed for me in hopes that we will be one of the few lucky folks to get a sneak preview of the new Harry Potter Theme Park, Diagon Alley!  I'm dying to see what they do with the Hogwarts Express! I'll be sure to put up a post of all the goodies if we get in. Either way, we'll have loads of pictures and maybe some goodies to share when we get back.  Until then....Laters Chickies!

17703290Title: The King
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 12
Author: J.R. Ward
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Combined Rating:  3 Notes and 2 Flames

Glimpse Our Thoughts: 
J.R. Ward just keeps disappointing me with the BDB series!  What I thought was going to be a book about my two favorite characters from the series, turned into a book about Sola and Asil who I care nothing for!  #Deeply Disappointed!!!!

Goodreads Synopsis:

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?
