SYNOPSIS
One break is all The Crow Brothers need and we’re about to get it.
Johnny Outlaw, rock legend and lead singer of The Resistance, is here to watch us play. But he’s not the only familiar face in the crowd—killer little body, heart-shaped face, and drop-dead gorgeous.
Hannah Nichols sitting at the bar makes it hard to concentrate, sparks already reigniting. The beauty was never a groupie and tonight she’s not here to catch our show. She came to drop a bomb. “You have a son.”
She underestimated me. I’ll prove to my son, and her, that I can be the dad he needs.
What is it about musicians? Why are they so damn sexy?
My heart was Jet Crow’s the moment he opened his sexy mouth and sang that first song. One stolen night with that man would never be enough, but I’m not here to fall into his bed. Again. I’m here to fight for custody of a son he’s never known.
There’s just one problem. Those sparks between us have become flames. If we’re not careful we’re both going to get burned.

SPARK EXCERPT
Prologue
Jet Crow
Subtle scents of cinnamon mix with the taste of whiskey on her skin. I lick her from collarbone to the back of her ear, her moans enticing me to take more than a gentle share of what I want.
I’m well past hooking up with groupies, but something drew me to the beautiful brunette. Under the bright spotlight of that stage, my eyes found hers as I sang about finding the missing piece of me. Maybe it was the way she pretended to not care, catching my eyes and then turning away as if she was too shy to come speak to me, but too good to be bothered. It didn’t matter. I was already caught up in her as much as she was caught up in me.
The set ended and I made my way over to the mystery woman, the one who hid in the dark of the bar just as two shots were served. I took the shot of Fireball and then took her home shortly after.
Fuck. She feels good.
Hard little body, but soft in all the right places. Tits that fill my large hands and legs that spread enough for me to squeeze between her thighs. I bet she wouldn’t reach my shoulders in heels. Speaking of, “Keep them on.”
I like the feel of the leather against my lower back, the hard heel scraping across my skin when she tries to power play me by tightening around my waist and pulling me closer. I didn’t ask her to my bedroom. I didn’t have a chance. What started out as laughing while we shared a two a.m. snack of Cheetos, hummus, and whiskey turned into me eating her as a snack on top of my kitchen counter. I don’t ever do that with a one-nighter, but damn if she didn’t make me want to break more rules with her.
She kisses me like a woman in need of water, taking as much as she wants while pressing her heels into my ass. The heat between us emanates until I’m dragging my shirt off to try to cool down.
I knew she was different the moment she opened her mouth back at the bar. “You sing rock with so much soul. Who hurt you?”
“No one gets close enough to do me any harm.”
“That’s a pity.”
“It’s a pity I’ve never been hurt?”
“No, it’s a pity you’ve never loved anyone enough to get hurt.”
My heart started beating for what felt like the first time as I looked into her sultry eyes. I could blame the booze, but I can’t lie to myself. She had me thinking twice on things I never considered once before.
Who was this woman?
Even with our stomachs full, we weren’t satisfied. She dragged me by the belt down the hall to my bedroom. Her clothes were off and mine quickly followed before we tumbled into bed.
Fast. I want to fuck her fast and hard, but every time our eyes connect there’s such sadness found in her grays that I slow down. Wanting her to hold contact, I cup her cheek. “Hannah?”
Her eyes slowly open, the long lashes framing the lust I find between them. “What?” she asks between heavy breaths.
“Are you okay?”
“I’m good.”
“Just making sure.”
She runs her hands up my neck and into the back of my hair. “I’m sure.” Pulling me down to her, our mouths are just a few inches apart when she whispers, “I want you. I want to do this.”
Shy isn’t something I’d call her considering we were in my bed two hours after meeting. I like a woman who knows what she wants. Hannah knows. And fuck if it isn’t a turn on that she wants me.

Cover Reveal for Book of Watchers by Mary Ting!!!

Title: Book of Watchers 
Series: Watchers #1
Author: Mary Ting
Genre: NA Fantasy
Release Date: March 26, 2018 
Before the Bible, there was Book of Watchers

Enoch wants to live an ordinary life. He’s content to lie low, skip his college classes, and avoid committing to any one girl. But ordinary isn’t on the syllabus for Enoch because at night, he dreams of demons. Vivid dreams that leave him wanting escape more than ever. When they escape his dreams and attack him during daylight, his reality becomes a nightmare. 
As he pieces together the meaning behind the encounters, supernatural creatures emerge. Demons. Vampires. Witches. Angels. And they all want something from him. In a supernatural world he never thought possible, Enoch uncovers a secret that either will destroy him or force him to become much more than he ever wanted. 
The scent of my own flesh and blood seeped through the walls. I didn’t bother to knock on the door, but instead flicked my wrist to the side. My power tore the slab of wood off the hinges, and I walked in. The family of four became immobile, their eyes wide with terror as they watch me saunter into their lives.

Fools. 
They should be on their knees, bowing, worshiping me, but instead they stared like I was a ghost. Luckily for them, I felt tolerant. After all, I had come to claim my own. A happy occasion indeed.
I didn’t hide my true form, and I supposed I would be horrified if I were human and saw the likes of me. A demon. Over seven feet tall with ripped muscles, I towered over the entire family. But my face, reptilian with hardly any nose and rows of teeth like shark’s—I was a thing of nightmares.

International Bestselling/Award Winning Author Mary Ting/M. Clarke resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. She also toured with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children's chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

Rivers of Hell by Marina Finlayson (audiobook)

Rivers of Hell cover artBook Description:
Rescuing a god? Check. Escaping to the underworld? Also check. 

But despite her successes, things aren’t going so well for Lexi and her friends—which is why they’re hiding out in the underworld. The god they rescued has been magically collared, unable to access his power. Worse still, Lexi’s best friend is similarly shackled, blocking her shape-shifting abilities. 

Since they have precisely zero collar-opening keys, they need to make one—except the only person who can help them, the god of metalshaping, is dead. The good news? Lexi’s already in the underworld, so she can try to find him. The bad news? The underworld isn’t exactly a meadow full of butterflies, and venturing even deeper into it may be the quickest way to join the ranks of the dead herself. 

But for her best friend, Lexi would journey through hell and back. Just as well, because that’s exactly what she must do to save her friend and their allies.

My Thoughts:
I completely enjoyed this book.  It continues where Murdered Gods left off.  Lexi is in the underworld and trying to figure out how to free her friends.  Then one goes missing and it leaves them even more in a bind than they had been before.  A deal is brokered and it has severe consequences.  This one ends on a cliffhanger with lots of unanswered questions but that just makes me anxious to start the next book.  The narrartor does a great job with the story and I cannot wait for the next!

It was a 4/5 for me.  I won't wait for the next book to come out on audio, I am going to start it immediately.

The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan

The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3)Book Description:
Percy Jackson returns in another modern-day adventure with a Greek mythology twist—this time he must find a goddess kidnapped from Mount Olympus!

When the goddess Artemis goes missing, she is believed to have been kidnapped. And now it's up to Percy and his friends to find out what happened. They must find Artemis before the winter solstice, when her influence on the Olympian Council could swing an important vote on the war with the titans. Not only that, but first Percy will have to solve the mystery of a rare monster that Artemis was hunting when she disappeared—a monster rumored to be so powerful it could destroy Olympus forever.

My Thoughts:
My son and I are really enjoying these Percy Jackson books.  In this one, they are searching for a goddess that has been kidnapped.  There are several issues going on all at once.  Including a prophecy of the quest that they are going on.  There are twists and turns to get through everything that is thrown in their way.  We meet some gods that we've not actually met in previous books and some new characters that I'm hoping make it into future books.
It was a 5/5 for us.  We plan to finish this series!

Navy SEAL Promise by Amber Leigh Williams

Navy Seal Promise (Fairhope, Alabama #5)Book Description:
He made a promise he intends to keep Harmony Savitt is off-limits for navy SEAL Kyle Bracken. Not only is she his best friend's little sister, she's also a single mother and the widow of a fellow SEAL killed in action. This soldier needs to keep his distance. But something between them has changed... Despite the new complicated feelings he has for Harmony, when his family comes under attack, there's no one Kyle trusts more than her to help him get answers. When that threat extends to her and her daughter, though, he vows to protect them...even if it means putting his own heart on the line.

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book.  I've read previous books by this author and I really like how there are charactetrs from other books, just at a different stage in their lives.  In this one, Kyle is the SEAL that Harmony has always known she could count on.  He has been there for her throughout her whole life.  He told her when her baby's father was KIA. Harmony has always been in love with Kyle but he has never really looked at her 'that' way. The center of her universe though, is her daughter.  Everyone loves Bea.
I love that Kyle is close to his family and considers Harmony and her baby girl a part of it.  She has always been in his life and more like a little sister. That is only until she grew up.  He knew he would always be there for her but always felt guilty for noticing she was an attractive woman. The family stays close even when there are threats against them.  It just brings them closer together and more determined to have each others' backs.  Oveall I totally loved these characters.
It was a 4/5 for me.  I can't wait to see what happens next in this town!

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book (via PUYB).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.

Broken Forest by Eliza Tilton (ReRead!)

Broken Forest (Daath Chronicles, #1)Book Description:
Hopeless he'll never be more than the boy who didn't save his brother, 17-year-old Avikar accepts his life as the family stable boy, trying to forget the past. But when his sister, Jeslyn, is kidnapped, the thought of losing another sibling catapults him on a desperate quest. With his best friend by his side, and using the tracking skills he learned from his father, he discovers Jeslyn has been taken, kidnapped by one Lucino, the young lord of Daath, a mystical place thought only to exist in fables.

And Lucino has plans for Jeslyn.

His shape-shifting brethren feed off the auras of humans, and Jeslyn's golden hue is exactly what Lucino needs to increase his power. The longer it takes Avikar to reach her, the more entranced she becomes with Lucino's world, and the harder it will be for Avikar to set her free.

He failed his family once. He won't fail again.
 

My Thoughts:
This is a re-read for me.  I read this book when it first came out and now there is a whole set of books about Daath!  I still really enjoyed this and getting to know these characters all over again.  Jeslyn is kidnapped and her brother and boyfriend are determined to find her and bring her home.  Her brother, Avikar has issues from losing his little brother and is not going to lose Jeslyn too.  
The ones who kidnapped Jeslyn take her to Daath, a place that was thought to be a myth.  There she meets the prince, Lucino, and gets used to the lifestyle, though the people there are strange.  Avikar and his group are fighting through all the obsticles that get in their way to get to Jeslyn because they know something that she doesn't. Lucino isn't human.
It was a 4/5 for me.  Can't wait to read the next book :) 

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
