Eclectic Beatles Cover

I'm not usually a fan of Beatles covers where the original song is unrecognizable, but I have to say, Deni Bonet has really taken Please Please Me down a rather trippy, gypsy like road.

The song is definitely different from what most of us are used to hearing, but it is really good.

Somehow I except to see Johnny Depp's character from Chocolat make an appearance here. Or maybe Cher?

Doctor Who In Review: Cold War

Cold War was one of those episode where you may find yourself sitting on the fence.

It is a good episode but it lacks something, maybe that's why it took me 3 viewings to watch the whole thing.

I tried watching at 8, and a family issue interrupted, so I watched again at 11 and fell asleep through part of it.

That doesn't bode well for my feelings on the episode.

So I finally watched it, On Demand, thank you Comcast!

I had heard so much about the classic Ice Warriors that I think I may have had higher expectations going in for this Who monster, because truth be told, I was a little bit Meh. Skaldak could've been more terrifying, but he wasn't. Truthfully, the crew of the Russian submarine were more frightening than Skaldak.

The only thing that really amused me in this episode was the professor and his fondness for British New Romantic bands. Oh and Clara singing Hungry Like The Wolf, that filled me with many giggles. I always love finding Duran Duran references in TV shows.

Clara feels like she's coming into her own a bit more, but I wish she felt special or something, she's the most lackluster companion for all her super cuteness. I hope when The Doctor finds out why she's "Impossible" the whole thing will be worth it.

Overall the first 2 episodes were excellent to good, with Cold War being the worst of the lot. Here's hoping Hide will be stronger overall.

Covet Cover Reveals!

Gone With The Wolf, Kristin Miller

What he wouldn’t give to have her fingers rake over his body instead of the keyboard… 

Free-spirited bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. But when profits decline, she slips into a dress suit and secures a nine-to-five. After learning that her bar has become property of Wilder Financial, Emelia is determined to get some answers. 

Two can play the ruthless business game. If only her attraction to the boss wasn’t so intense… 

When Drake’s twin brother senses that Drake has found his match—and now inherits their father’s billion dollar estate—he hatches a plan to take Emelia out. Drake vows to protect her at all costs, but he might have to
pay with his own life.
The Awakening: Aidan, Abby Niles 

Is the gift of eternal love a blessing or a curse? 

After years of counseling grieving shifters, psychiatrist and half-shifter, Dr. Jaylin Avgar has become jaded on shifter mating. She wants to marry a human and forget about the love for eternity crap. Then she meets Aidan O’Connell, an infuriatingly laid back shifter who represents everything she doesn’t want. Yet, the more he pursues her, the more she craves a future with him. Only one thing stands in her way: death. Can she overcome her fear of losing Aidan to the one guarantee in life? 

Millionaire consultant, Aidan O’Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct. Unfortunately, that woman is Jaylin, who has no qualms about telling him that he and his so-called eternity can shove it. When she pushes him away, he takes a drastic step so she can no longer escape. The close proximity throws the instinct into overdrive. Can he control the need engrained in him until he’s certain she will reciprocate the bond, or will a moment of weakness doom him to hell on earth?

The Demon's Song, Kendra Leigh Castle

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. At least, that's how it seems to Sofia Rivera when her attempt to help a friend ends in a blood-soaked confrontation with creatures that aren't even supposed to exist. With a group of rogue vampires determined not to leave a single witness to their violence hot on her heels, Sofia finds herself saddled with an immortal bodyguard—Phenex, the fallen Angel of Song.  
While the vampire king roots out the corruption threatening to take down his underworld kingdom, Sofia will have to deal with a fallen angel whose dark beauty is often at odds with his ornery nature. Slowly, Sofia and Phenex give in to the strange attraction neither can deny. And as the darkness closes in around them, Phenex begins to wonder whether even the wickedest Fallen might find his own happy ending...and his heart.

Tall, Dark, and Divine, Jenna Bennett
Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe--or want--anything to do with that sappy emotion. Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation. When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart. Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else. Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone who isn’t him—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.

Deceiving the Witch Next Door, Melissa Bourbon Ramirez
Down-on-her-luck witch Storie Bell never thought the biggest threat to her future would be Reid Malone, the very man she’d run from years before. After striking it rich in Texas shale, he’s back in town, and he seems hell-bent on getting in the way of her bookstore’s grand opening. A witch trying to blend in in a small southern town is hard enough, but now he’s seriously testing her strict No Kissing Mortal Men policy. But even witches don’t have a spell for that. Reid knows there’s much more to Storie than meets the eye. But right now he has only one mission: to infiltrate her shop so he can snatch the elusive secret ingredient to his father’s million-dollar moonshine recipe. Once he does, he can go back to the city and get out of his small hometown, a place in which he has no future. But as the days go by, he can’t help falling for Storie in every way…and every encounter brings him closer to finding out what happens when you try to deceive a witch.

Blurb Chicago socialite Veronica Jamison is determined to shake off her sheltered lifestyle and overbearing parents. She heads to her grandfather’s small town of Kortville, ready to roll up her sleeves and work for the family construction business. She’ll prove her worth, even if it means answering to the company’s ruggedly handsome co-owner, Matt.
Matt Shaw just wants to run his business, spend time with the niece he’s raising on his own, and give back to the townspeople who have stood by him. Managing a spoiled-rotten princess he knows he’ll never be good enough for? Not part of his plan. But as he gets to know Veronica, he learns there’s more to her than her beautiful looks and designer clothes. She’s got a heart as rich as her background.

With the quirky townspeople rallying against Veronica inheriting her grandfather’s business, it’s up to Matt to try to drive her out of town. But how can he, when instead she’s driving her way into his heart?

"You left your tools behind," Veronica noted as Matt backed out of the driveway. "We didn't finish hanging the gate, and I really wanted to meet the owner of that house."

"I'll come back and finish up. The job's almost done."

"So I'm your top priority." She leaned her forehead against the window. "That's so sweet."

His chest tightened, but he kept his voice impassive. "You have a warped idea of top priority if you think someone who makes you beat yourself up with tools and then pass out is sweet."

She lifted her head enough to smile weakly at him. "Matt Shaw, you are without a doubt the sweetest boss I've ever had."

His fingers twitched. He clenched the steering wheel, but it was a poor substitute for the skin he longed to touch. "You're only saying that because I haven't fired you yet."

“I loved Matt and Veronica and fully enjoyed this book.  I laughed and cried, it kept me entertained and it was hard to put down.” –Crystal from My Reading Room, 5 stars http://myreadingroom-crystal.blogspot.com/2012/10/author-interview-review-giveaway.html

After a tragedy changes the course of Elise Morgan’s life leaving her without a family and in foster care, she meets Anthony Scott. It doesn’t take long for them to become fast friends and they do everything together. When Elise manages to get a scholarship to college and Anthony doesn’t. They find themselves separated. As the years pass, they lose touch.

Feeling restless with her life, Elise sets about trying to find what is missing in her life. After breaking up with her boyfriend she takes a trip home hoping to find a sense of peace. One hug reveals that what Elise thought she was missing wasn’t a place or a thing it was a person.

Can she find true love with the one man she thought she might never see again?

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains adult sexual situations and/or adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.


After the interview, I hurried back to my hotel room. I changed out of my suit into a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, swapped my heels for sneakers, and headed down to the wharf. I searched for over an hour before I finally found the Hotel Alexander. Walking onto the job site, I stopped the first guy in a hard hat that I could find.

“Excuse me.” I tapped the man on the shoulder.

“Yeah?” He eyed me suspiciously. “How can I help you?”

“I’m looking for Anthony Scott.”

“He’s up the scaffold.” He pointed at the mass of steel piping on the side of the building. “Hang on a sec, I’ll get him down for you.”

“Hey, Tony! There’s a chick here to see ya.” Anthony’s head popped over the edge of the scaffold. I looked up so he could see my face.

“Elise?” he asked, disbelief clear in his tone. I just nodded. “Stay right where you are. I’m coming down.” His whoop of excitement echoed off the surrounding buildings, making my heart beat just a little faster. As he hit the bottom of the scaffolding, he ran over to me, swept me up in his arms, and swung me around in the biggest bear hug I’d had in years.

That was when it hit me. This was home. Not San Francisco, but right here in Anthony’s arms. This is what I’d been missing for six years, where I’d been yearning to be.

He finally set me down on my feet and leaned back to look at me. “What are you doing here?” He stared at me shock written all over his face.

“I had a job interview this morning with the Times. I thought I’d come say hi while I was in town.”

“You’re moving home?” He yelped with excitement.

“I am if I get the job.” I smirked at him.

With that, he swept me up into another giant hug. “Wait right here. Don’t move.” He turned and ran toward what was probably the on-site office, disappearing inside.

He came back out after about ten minutes, a giant grin spread across his face. “So, have you had lunch yet?” I shook my head. “Well, come on, then.” He grabbed my hand.

We spent the rest of the afternoon chatting and reminiscing. We filled each other in on what had been going on in our lives. I ’fessed up and told him the whole truth about Dave. In return, he told me about this man-eater of a girl he had broken up with just after New Year’s.

The more we talked, the more I understood this was what had been missing in my life. I couldn’t remember feeling as content as I did right then, sitting with Anthony. He made me feel like I was the only girl in the world. Then it dawned on me. How had I not seen it before? I loved him and not just the kind of love you have for family. I was in love with him—probably always had been. I was just too scared and withdrawn as a young girl to recognize my feelings for what they were. As luck would have it, I wasn’t that girl anymore. I was a woman, one who knew just what she wanted. Somehow I had to let him know how I felt, even if he didn’t feel the same.

As dinner time rolled around, I didn’t want us to part ways before I’d had a chance to tell him how I felt.

“So, what are we doing for dinner?” I asked.

“What would you like to do?” He grinned.

Same old Anthony, always wanting to make sure we did something that would make me happy.

“Well, I was thinking we could just head to my hotel, order a little room service, and continue the trip down memory lane.”

Review:  Life In Suitcases is a short story, a very short story, only about 21 pages long. I always find it hard to review short stories, because I'm one of those people that likes things long and drawn out. You don't get that in 21 pages and this one, though an excellent quick read before bed, could have stood to have been longer.

I'm like the obnoxious little girl from the AT & T ads, I want more. I want to know more about Elise and Anthony. I'd even like to know more about her relationship with Daniel. I felt like as a reader we were given a lot of information that moved the story on too fast to get to the point where she hooks up with Anthony.

The sex between the two of them however will knock your socks off. There was definitely chemistry there. 

Great short for fans of the new adult genre

Goodreads - http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13095649-werewolves-be-damne



Book Description:
Nexi Jones—part witch, part guardian, and wannabe kick-ass warrior—can’t throw a punch or conjure the simplest magic. But that doesn’t stop her from hunting the werewolves who slaughtered her human family. She’ll have her revenge, but only if Kyden, the elite guardian, would get the hell out of her way.
Kyden can’t decide if Nexi wants to get herself killed or if she just has no clue what she’s doing. But her father made it clear: keep Nexi safe…or else. Of course, the more Nexi runs toward revenge, the more she needs Kyden’s aid, and as she grows into her power and confidence, so does his desire to protect her. The only problem? She’d rather he dropped dead.
But when a vampire paints a bull's-eye on Nexi’s back, she’s hard-pressed to deny Kyden and the help he’s offering. Even if it means getting her revenge will be a little bit harder. At least it will still be as sweet."

About the Author:
Stacey Kennedy is an urban fantasy lover at heart, but she also enjoys losing herself in dark and sensual worlds. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who gave her a happily-ever-after. Together, they have two small children who can always make her smile, and who will never be allowed to read Mommy’s books. If she’s not plugging away at a new story, you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy and Game of Thrones.


I’ve found you, fur ball.
Nexi peered from behind the large oak tree and spotted the small log cabin nestled in the thick forest. The porch light cast a warm glow into the night. Fog settled over the lush grass, and the night was dark, eerie.
Stepping away from her hiding place behind the tree, she strode forward and gripped the dagger tightly in her hand. Keeping the silver blade pointed outward, she climbed the cabin’s porch steps, taking each one slowly to avoid detection.
Once she arrived at the front door, she wrapped her hand around the door handle. Rich hunger for revenge burned in her veins and made her intent on one thing: to slaughter the werewolf who escaped the night of her parents’ murder. Not caring what awaited her, she stormed inside, dagger pointed, ready to kill.
The simple cabin had two large brown couches near a wood-burning stove, a kitchenette behind the living room, and a quilt-covered bed resting in the back. And that was it; there were no other rooms to investigate. No secret hiding places she could see.
No damned werewolf.
She cursed, shut the front door behind her, then trotted down the steps to return to her hiding spot. On her way across the yard, she glanced at the space to the right of the tree, which looked much like a heat wave, indicating that the portal to the Otherworld remained.
In some places around the world—or the Earthworld, as supernaturals had called it—there were permanent portals to the supernatural realm. This portal had only appeared because Nexi had travelled to this cabin from the Otherworld. Once she passed through the portal again, the gateway would vanish.
Magic had its perks. Quick travel was one of them.
Nexi shook her head at how normal all this magical stuff seemed now. Just over a month ago she’d never believed in anything that went bump in the night. Now she knew all those things existed, and in fact, she was one of them.
To her horror, she had learned that her birth mother, Tillie, had been murdered by a power-hungry vampire, Lazarus.  All those years ago, her birth father, Drake, had protectively decided to block Nexi’s supernatural abilities. He had planned for her to live and die as a mortal. Now with her return to the Otherworld and the removal of the block on her true identity, there was no going back.
She was no longer plain, human, Nexi Jones.
She was Nexi Jones, part guardian, part witch.
Looking away from the portal and to her hiding spot until the werewolf returned, she hurried her steps. She wasn’t ready to return to the Otherworld yet. Not until she had the werewolf’s head as her wall ornament would she dare go home.
Just as she neared the tree, a woodsy scent that had nothing to do with the forest mixed with the citrusy aroma of aftershave. A blink of an eye later, the dagger she held was now at her throat, a hard body closed in on her back.
“You smelled lovely when you arrived.” The low voice by her ear held a faint English accent. “But I never imagined you’d be so pretty.” 

Cover Reveal: Tremble


Dez Cross has problems. She’s almost eighteen and on the verge of losing her mind thanks to the drug the Denazen corporation used to enhance her abilities. People close to her have turned their backs on the underground and are now fighting for the wrong side. And then there’s Kale... Things couldn’t get any worse.

Until, of course, they do. Denazen is about to start a new trial—this one called Domination—and it works. But that means out with the old and in with the new. The order has been given to terminate all remnants of the second trial—including Dez. The good news is that there’s a survivor from the original trial. A woman whose blood may hold the cure for the second generation of Supremacy kids' defects. But the underground Sixes aren’t the only ones who know about her.

Dez's father is willing to throw away everything he has to keep Dez from getting the cure—including the one thing that might tear her apart from the inside out.

Exclusive Excerpt

“I told them you wouldn’t come alone. Yet here you are,” Kale’s dark voice said from the doorway. “You’re an odd one.”
“You don’t realize it, but coming from you, that’s kinda funny,” I said, swallowing hard and turning to face him. The light from the hall lit the entire right side of his face, leaving the left cloaked in darkness. Two sides of the same dangerous coin. I wanted to back away but resisted, meeting his gaze straight on. My Kale was in there somewhere—and he could sense weakness. “Did you kill her?”
            “She’s dead.”
            “I figured as much,” I said, jaw tense. Another step closer. “But I’m asking if you did it.”
            He cocked his head to the left and I could see his expression. Confusion. “You asked the same thing about the other girl. Why does it matter?”
            “Because it does. It matters to you, too. You just don’t remember.”
            He took another step. Inches. He was inches from me now, the warmth from his body radiating like the sun. Every one of my muscles plunged into an all-out war with my heart. Common sense screamed for me to match his steps forward with ones away. Keep your distance—he’s dangerous!
My heart wanted to move closer. I wanted this to all be nothing more than a bad dream.
            “I feel like...when I look at you—” He shook his head and placed a hand on either side of me, up against the mattress, and brought his face close to mine. For the longest moment all he did was stare. When he did speak, there was so much rage in his voice. “You stabbed me. When that didn’t do the trick, you pushed me from the bridge. I’m asking you why?”
            “I never did that, Kale. No one’s ever pushed you from a bridge as far as I know. I promise. As for the scar, yeah. You were stabbed. Alex did it.”
            “You’re lying, Kiernan.”
            “I’m not. And my name is Dez,” I said, voice cracking under the weight of his words. “Deznee.” I wasn’t ready to give up, so I went with what had always worked for me. Something insane.
            Pushing forward, I crushed my lips to his, wrapping both arms around his neck to lock him in place. He didn’t resist and, to my surprise, didn’t shove me away. Instead, after a moment, he responded, his lips moving fervently with mine.
            The kiss only lasted a few moments. I was the one who broke it, pulling away as the clouds passed, allowing the moonlight to shine through the bedroom window once again. For a second, neither of us said a word. His cheeks glistened with my tears, making it look like he’d been crying, too, as he stared—eyes wide and mouth agape—like he’d never seen me before.
            For a crazy, insane moment, time froze. I thought maybe the kiss had done the trick. That this time the princess had woken the prince. He looked at me with a mix of shock and awe, the tiniest hint of my Kale gleamed through. My heart pounded so loudly I could barely hear anything else. It was there. I could see the spark in his eyes. “Kale?”
            But it didn’t last. Or maybe it hadn’t been there at all. Maybe I wanted to see it so badly that I imagined the whole thing.
            His lips parted and the corners tilted upward just a hair. “Roz is right. You are crazy.”

Doctor Who In Review: The Rings Of Akhaten

The Rings Of Akhaten is one of those episodes that really remind you why Doctor Who is such a great show.

I've found that the first real traveling episodes with the new companions are always fantastic. With Donna it was The Last Days Of Pompeii, which this episode strangely reminds me of and in other ways it reminds me a bit of Gridlock from the Tennant years...sans the cute cats.

This episode packs a punch from the starting scenes where you get a glimpse into the life and family of Clara Oswald to the Doctor saving the day as always.

But aside from getting a few more clues, or not, about Clara, its is the Doctor's interaction with the little girl who plays the Queen of Years that really reminds you how good Matt Smith can be in this role.

He isn't all about getting the cute companion, and even as a girl myself, I have to admit Jenna Louise Coleman is flipping cute. 11 just has a way with kids. You saw it in The Eleventh Hour with the young Amy and in the prequel to The Bells Of St John with the young Clara. Matt Smith is just great with kids. It is a shame that Lis Sladen passed away, if he could have made a few more appearances on Sarah Jane Adventures, things would have been really fab. Glad he did get to go on that show once.

Another highlight of this show was the music. Completely stunning.

But back to the scary. The grandfather/God that they were singing too is a rather psycho parasitic vampire of sorts that kinda looks like a jack-o-lantern!

This episode brought back all that is good about Doctor Who. A little scary, but something you can't pull your eyes away from.

Oh and super 50th Anniversary nod in the episode as The Doctor said he came to that planet once with his Granddaughter. Love that some of the classic show is popping up, rather than stuff about the reboot and whinging and wining about Rose etc.

This episode will definitely go down as one of the best in the 11th Doctor's era.

Is It Country?

This little cutie is all over country radio with his single Somebody's Heartbreak.

The song is really fun, catchy and well, it is good. But how does it pass for country?

It is kind of like Taylor Swift?

There's no country left to that girl anymore. (If there ever was).

Now I'm not knocking his music, because the song is good. It is what pop music should be like for the most part, a little bit of cheesy fun, that anyone can listen too.

But country?

There's not one bit of country sound to the song. And if you listen to clips from his album, you'll see, not much country there?

So why is he an up and coming Country singer?

I don't know.

Maybe because country music needs a few tweenybopper cuties?

Whatever, at least his music is worth listening to.

Doctor Who In Review: The Bells Of St. John

It feels like forever since we've had a new set of Doctor Who episodes.

Well all that changed last night as The Doctor stormed back onto our screens with his new companion Clara Oswald, played by the almost too cute to be true Jenna Louise Coleman. She's the typical Who companion a little bit of a misfit, just like the Doctor, plus she is the girl twice dead. (And the Doctor needs to find out just who she is)

That sets up the story arc for the rest of the season, as well as finding out who the "Big" villain is going to be this season.

The secret is getting her in the Tardis, or as she aptly names it at the end of the epi, his snogbox.

Hey, I'd get in his big blue box and snog The Doctor, in at least 7 or his 11 selves.

But anyway..back to the episode at hand. The wifi is taking your soul by downloading it to some cloud. All that's left are shells of people saying, "I don't know where I am!"

I'm kind of on the fence with this episode.

Things I liked:

Clara was awesome, not as fun as Amy but still a good companion.

Some nods to the Ponds...pay close attention to the book Summer Falls and who it is written by. Kinda neat after the Melody Malone mystery in the Pond's swansong.

The doctor's bike! (I hear we'll be seeing it again in the 50th with Tennant and Piper)

11's new outfit. Tres sexy.

Clara and the tea..now that's impossible..she didn't spill a drop!

The Great Intelligence: a newish foe that really seems like it could be quite formidable.

What I didn't like

Clara thinking the Doctor was going all leg humpy on her.

The ending seemed to easy...no real fight, which was a bit ho hummy.

It was a decent enough intro to the new companion that we've already seen twice this series. I hope the next episode is a bit more exciting.
