Invictus




Hello, Fellow book lovers and welcome back to my newest blog. The newest blog is about Invictus by Ryan Graudin which I had an Ebook Arc from net galley but was not able to get to finish before the book came out. I sincerely apologize because I am behind in my Ebook Arcs.  So I preorder the book and decided to read and review. So this Review is the finished copy of Invictus Paper from the UK. Now onto the summary and final thoughts of this book.


This book is about Farway McCarthy who is a time traveler. Time traveling is in his blood and its the only thing he has ever wanted to do. But Far is special because he was literally born outside of time, and this makes his life a pain when it comes to Time traveling school. He fails school but gets contacted by a gangster who gives him the means to travel time and space but for a price. Farway and his crew will go throughout history and steal famous items from the Titanic to the library Alexandria. But the universe is about to throw a wrench into Far life and it going to affect him in a big way. In order to know more I would totally say buy this book, it is worth the read. Now onto my final thoughts of the book.


I rated this book 3.5 stars out of five. It was good through the first half of the book but as you hit the middle it seems to slow down. I feel like the description of this book being Doctor who meets Firefly meets matrix is not that true. It has Doctor Who in a way of a time machine and thief but nothing else. I would say its more Firefly meets matrix more than anything. I don’t care for matrix and I am probably the only one who can say that. So the matrix aspect totally misses the mark with me. I did love the history in this book as well as the time traveling but that was about it. I love some of Ryan writing but I am not sure about it totally. I would honestly need to read her other works because I am not sure if its this story or her writing that throw me off. I really love the way history described in this book. I love how people learn to study history almost like Star Trek with a simulator. I really did like Far and his friend Priya. Overall this was a fun read but would have been better with less Matrix feeling about it too me. But if you like all the things I describe, then I would buy this book because you will so enjoy it, especially you Scifi nerds. As always I link the author social medias below along with mine and the book link. Hope you enjoyed this review and come back soon. 


Tea, love and books

Beyond Forever


 My latest read is an Arc that was provided courteous of the amazing author team which is  Kit Rocha, for a  new book in the O'kane Series. I have read several of the O'kane romance novels, which are basically Erotic wonderful dystopian smut involving wonderful fun loving characters. Once again It is Kinda of, sort of the Grown-up Hunger Games in a way. I love the O'kane series because I am a smutty romantic reader at heart. So let's get to the newest book about the O’kanes title Beyond Forever

Beyond Forever takes us back to the beginnings of Declan Dallas and Alexa. It takes us back to the moment Lexi and Dallas meet and how they become Lovers. It talks about the beginning of the Sector, and how Dallas took over the Sector. It takes us back to all the relationships that didn’t work because we all know Dallas and Lexi are suppose to be together. We also see some of our favorites like Jas, Noelle, Amira, Cruz and a few others. We get to know the real sides of what made Lexi and Dallas, the O'Kanes, that they are now. Plus at the end someone gets a true romance happy ending, So I suggest you go buy this book if you love the Okanes like I do. 

So I rated this book 4 stars out of five, because of the plot. While I usually do tend to find smutty erotic romance novels in general, very predictable. Now with that being said, I will forever read a Kit Rocha Novels, and here are the reasons why? One, the writing of the actual characters and their development is bloody brilliant. Two, these books are completely action packed. Three, the characters in all of the books, are so well written, that you can’t help but enjoy their personalities. As for Beyond Forever and every book in the O'kanes series, I have noticed that Kit Rocha’s writing has developed a ton. What I mean by that, is that this book is not a constant sexy moment, every time you change the page.This Story seems to have more of a developed storyline with the characters and their backgrounds compare to the first O’Kane book. In Beyond forever book, you see the character’s personalities, more typical of humanity then romance fiction characters. Now as for the cover, because I am that annoying reader who discusses the cover. I do love the cover on this book, it fits all of the O’Kane covers 

Overall, this was an amazing book, I really enjoy everything in this book. Lexi is a fierce female lead and always has been since book one. She is a beautiful powerfully well-written female who stands for something and doesn’t let the men push her around. She also works hard to rise among her male counterparts and to help her female friends do the same. She doesn’t let the men push her around or away from work. Now Dallas is completely her equal with his typical, I am male attitude and I want to protect all of the women. But I also love the fact that Dallas recognizes that Lexi will call him out on his motives.  He eventually comes to want Lexi as his equal.  I just can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed this book, and I know you will too if you love Erotic romance like I do. Also if you have ever wanted to read a Hunger games romance style type of Novel, this is the book for you. This book is now available for purchase. GO BUY IT NOW. As always all of the Authors link’s and my Information is listed below. Thanks again for visiting and please feel free to comment, share and follow.

You Bring the Distant Near

Hello, fellow book lovers of the world and welcome to my latest blog. This blog is about Mitali Perkins Book, "You Bring the Distant Near". I originally received this book as an E Arc from Netgalley but somehow it was misplaced so I could not review it. So I decide to purchase the book from Amazon on September 25 and was just now able to get to reading it. So now on to the summary and my final thoughts on the book.


This book is a story five generations of Indian women from India. We first meet Ranee, her daughters Tara and Sonia. They take us on a journey of leaving India, then Britain to go to America. The Das family decides that America will be their final home. This is hard on Ranee but she learns to accept it, while Sonia and Tara learn to accept it as well. Tara longs for the life of movies and acting is her gift. While Sonia is true to the core feminist, who believes in fighting for others rights especially women. But as the girls are finding it hard to live with Indian tradition, unlike their mother who wants nothing but India to remain in their home. But then Tragedy strikes and it causes a change in the family. It leads to Sonia and Tara both meeting the men they wish to fall in love with. Tara chooses an Indian man but still remains very American while Sonia goes full American and marries an African American man. As time goes by both girls each have a daughter by the name of Anna and Chantal (their American names) and once again Tragedy happens that teaches the Das family, its good to hold both Indian and American traditions close to home, and also to love both. This book is filled with life, love, and learning decisions that all women face. I really love this book and I suggest you go buy it and read it right now. Now onto my final thoughts about the book.

I rated this book a four out of five stars. It was well worth the buy and I am so happy I did. I love how inspiring Mitali Perkins made this book be. It shares the importance of remembering where you came from while trying to discover yourself as a person. It shows you that family is the most important thing and to never give up on that. It teaches you that real love can overcome even the most painful moments. It was inspiring to hear Sonia Das talk about women rights and how important even in today's light that conversation still remains. In the case of Anna, it shows how a family can feel put out about each other but can learn that things may not always be as they appear. It shows the ups and downs that all families face when not knowing their legacies. This book to me is especially inspiring to women and it shows how as young women we need to study are ancestor females, to better understand us. I can't recommend this book enough. It is such an easy but fast pace read. I flew through this book. I suggest if you're a female, go buy this book right now. I also want to mention that I love the diversity in this book so much. You See Indian customs, along with African American Harlem, plus the rich white new york. It's not all about one way of life, its truly about America and what makes us Great. It's about the world coming together and learning to coexist as one. So worth the buy and I suggest you do. As always the links to the author, book and my social media are listed below.

A Curious Beginning Review




Hello fellow book lovers, and I know it been a while since I was last here. These last two months have been terribly stressed filled, so hopefully, soon everything will be back to normal. Now let's get back to why I came here in the first place, I have a new book to review for you. Well a New book to me, that is actually apart of a series. I have been in the habit lately of only reading series when I have an Arc to one of the books in the series. In this case, I have book three on E Arc to the Veronica Speedwell series, but today I will be reviewing Book one and hopefully next month book two. So I purchase Book one, titled “A Curious Beginning” in the Veronica Speedwell Series on Amazon on August 3rd, 2017. So let's get to the Summary and the final thoughts now. 


This book is about a young lady by the Name of Veronica Speedwell. Veronica has just lost the only family she thought she had left. After the funeral, she is requested to come away with a Gentleman by the Name of Baron. After the Baron leaves Veronica in the Care of Mr. Stoker for safety, they end up on a wild goose chase across the country. The wild goose chase is caused by the death of the Baron which leads Stoker to believe that Veronica is in some kind of danger or cause the murder herself. As the chase goes on Veronica and Stoker find out that Veronica has more family alive but they can’t figure out why Veronica was left as an Orphan. This all leads to a very Sherlock Holmes-inspired mystery. Plus maybe a connection of Love between Stoker and Speedwell which has yet to be defined. Veronica herself is a very independent woman for the Victorian age which confuses the hell out of Stoker. While Stoker has lived a thousand lives in one and is a very passionate person, who comes to respect Veronica as an Equal but get jealous when other men pursue her. These two are unstoppable and make quite the pair. I can’t wait to read the next two books to see what their next mysterious will be. Now on to final thoughts. 


OMG, I rated this book a four out of five stars. I am obsessed with these two characters. Veronica and Stoker reminded me of Thomas Cresswell and Audrey Rose Wadsworth from Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco. All though I will say Veronica and Stoker are more adult base in my opinion, still would be friends with Kerri’s characters. I am dying right now with excitement over this series and can’t wait to read the next books. I have book two in UK paperback and Book three in E-ARC. I just love how Deanna writes the banter between Veronica and Stoker. How she has made Veronica a very independent female in the time of Victorian age. How she even has Veronica talking to Stoker about sexual relations in this book. I just love Stoker attitude of  I am big, bad and you can call me man, but he is actually really soft hearted and kind. He also becomes protective of Veronica in a short amount of time but gives her a way to be her own person as well.  I mean honestly People I could on for days and days telling you why I love these characters because that's just how much I love them. I can’t wait to read this entire series. I feel like I will read this series for years to come, over and over again. Ps Deanna or Berkley I am always open to reading and reviewing these books, YASS PLEASE. Right now the first two books are for sale and the third will be available in January or February of 2018. I am hoping to have my review of the third book up by December of this year. I whole heartily believe you should buy this series especially right now for the Mystery and Intrigue. I also will say that the ending of this mystery had my mouth hanging wide open, like what just happen and I always love when Books do that to a person. Please go buy this series, or borrow it from the library, you will not regret it. As always links to the Author, the books, and my Social media are listed down below.
