#BookReview Prelude #CharissKWalker #paranormal #metaphysical #Angels #Demons

Prelude
Prelude by Chariss K. Walker My rating: 4 of 5 stars I was given a copy of this book for my honest review. This was a little different than the usual paranormal type books I read first of all. There was a lot of information included, but I think for the readers benefit it needed to be placed . Although I often found the storyline moving upward quickly, captivating me, other times it felt as if everything was at a snails pace, pushing me to read. I loved the overall story, evil vs good, Angel vs Demon , in a most creative way I've read thus far. A families history , a love for a sister, a small group of teens into adulthood, as life transforms everything around them. “Your life from now on, i...

Welcome To Paradise: A Brutal Love Story by Glenn Rolfe


I LOVED THIS!!!! This short story really packs a punch. In fact I might have read it twice just so if I missed something I would catch it a second time. I enjoyed it as much the second time as I did the first and that is saying something for me. I rarely get to read the same thing twice and when I do it just shows how awesome the story really was. It is no secret that Glenn Rolfe can write. He can make you cringe, cry and cower in the corner. I love his writing and if I could write well I would definitely want to write like he does. When you read one of his books you become immersed and the world melts away. That is my kind of reading. Needless to say this short is just the same and I wonder...

Getting personal with Ambrose Ibsen


  Once upon a time, a young Ambrose Ibsen discovered a collection of ghost stories on his father’s bookshelf. He was never the same again. Apart from horror fiction, he enjoys good coffee, brewed strong.   Please help me welcome Ambrose Ibsen to Roadie Notes…….   1. How old were you when you first wrote your first story? I was probably about 7 years old. I tried my hand at writing short horror stories and filled a couple of spiral-bound notebooks with stories that were little more than pastiches of Alvin Schwartz’ Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. I also wrote a longer story about a haunted hotel that my grandfather paid me five dollars for. That was a proud day. 2. How many books have you ...

#BookReview Damaged #NIsabelleBlanco #ElenaMReyes #DarkErotica @ElenaMReyes

Damaged
Damaged by N. Isabelle Blanco My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was an interesting story at the very least. The imaginations from both authors was very intriguing, and it makes you crave more. You want to see how far they go , or are willing to go to make the story. Nick and Ivy locked away somewhere there minds abused and played with. Drugged, hypersensitive stimuli puts them through every test imaginable. Faced with death , can they get out before it's too late? For myself I love these types of books, erotic , bondage, mind tricks , which this story had all. The only problem is I had volunteered to read this story and had not read the prior, so I was lost. There was so much I wanted to know, bu...

Review: Christmas Stalking Selena Kitt 5

Christmas Stalking
Christmas Stalking by Selena Kitt My rating: 5 of 5 stars I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. I always enjoy reading Selena Kitt's books, and this was no exception. From the beginning I was engaged, wondering what had happened to this broken young woman, and her ultimate fear, and paranoia of others,especially those dressed in blue. As the storyline progressed, I learned a lot more about Ginny, her sister Maggie, and Maggie's children, along with Brody the stepfather , as a new character is introduced. The plot carried through with suspense, entanglement, fear , excitement, and more as Ginny faces true evil, leaving us with a perfect amount of bliss , and...

All Wound Up review by: Mandy Tyra

😀
What a cracking collection, the saga of Simone comes full circle! All 7 novellas and short stories in the whole Wind-Up Toyworld make up this immense book, very aptly titled ~ All Wound Up. Clever, Clever. I ordered a signed copy directly from David and got this beaut of a hardback complete with visually stunning dust jacket. It’s gorgeous! I’ve always liked how he spells out the titles in childrens pastel colored alphabet blocks. Really amps up that creep factor. Fun Fact: this was the first time in a reeeally long time I wasn’t reading from the kindle. Ohhh to have something so big and hard in my hands once again, was quite rousing. Ok so, I had already read the original Wind-Up Toy, Broke...

Happy Thanksgiving

💗
There are many things I am thankful for this year. So I decided to make a short list of several of them. I have always thought that people should look at things and make the best of every situation. Now I know that this isn’t always easy or fun at the time but everything that happens in our lives make us who we are and define us so if I look at things in a positive light no matter how bad I have managed to gain something from it all. Here is my list….. 1. Christy Thornbrugh – she taught me that there is always someone who loves me. Not to give up and to keep pushing no matter what. 2. My other mother and “brother” – they have always loved me no matter what I’m doing or where I am and that I’...

Sharp Left Turn by Faye Byrd

This one was a bit different.  You don't see to many books that approach something like this, switched at birth, a child that is critically ill.  I had a tough time with the beginning of the book, due to the rough subject matter and I'm a mother of a four year old and a nine month old.  It doesn't really reflect on the author, I think that's just me.  I like to read books as an escape, but this one was a bit stressful for me, especially since the romance aspect doesn't come into play until the middle of the book.  However,  I can't classify this book as a romance, because the couple doesn't cross paths until the middle of the book.  It's more women's fiction than anything else.  It's the fir...
