Cover Reveal: Not Dead Enough (Project Rebellion: SARA) by Mina Carter

There is life after death, unfortunately for them, it's the same one... Brett Perkins was a soldier, until the Project killed him. Now he's finding that life after death isn't so hot. With the Project base destroyed, he and his team have been tasked with running down and destroying a group of rogue Bloods. Unfortunately the vampires always seem to be one step ahead. Then they start kidnapping women... Thanks to her soon-to-be ex-husband, Julia Collier is despised and reviled in the small town of Greenwood. His stories have painted her as everything from an air-headed gold-digger to a nymphomaniac serial killer. She can't even shop in the local store without suffering abuse from her fellow townsfolk, and that's before the late night calls or her ex's bully-boys following her. When her home is broken into, Julia assumes it's her husband making good on his threats to 'deal with her for good'. She never dreams that it will lead a descent into another, terrifying world. One inhabited by werewolves, vampires...and zombies. Or that zombies could be so damn hot. Especially one certain example who makes her heart pound and all her common sense disappear over the horizon. After all, what woman in her right mind would fall for the undead? Unless the undead aren't dead at all, but something more than human, from a world she'll need all her wits and new abilities to survive the battle between the undead...and the dead.


About the Author:
Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days. So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all... (But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.) The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.

ARC Review: Nyght's Eve (Breakers' Bad Boys 2) by Laurie Roma

I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 Stars

Breakers is a town to fall in love with and in. The people are the best of small towns. People who circle the wagons around those who have been hurt and need support. Nyght's Eve was a story of healing and love. Almost all the major players needed support and healing - even the dogs.

Daryk Nyght, Dare to his friends, is a trauma surgeon forced to act against his beliefs and it has him burnt out. Taking some time to heal, he visits his old friend Hammer (Hammer's Fall) in Breakers. Here he meets Evie Beaumont, cousin to his friends and rescuer of dogs. Evie has some dark spots in her past that she is still haunted by. Together Dare and Evie, heal each other and bring safety to some of the more vulnerable elements of the town.

After reading Nyght's Eve, I can't wait for the next book. I'm hoping to hear more about whether or not Dante got the girl. There are so many lovable characters in Breakers, and I can't wait to find out their stories and revisit old friends.

Recommendation: Grab a glass of lemonade, put your feet up on the porch swing and plan to relax for an hour or two, Nyght's Eve is a wonderful way to spend a little "me" time with a book that is impossible to put down.

3013: Mated (3013 Series 1) by Laurie Roma


5 out of 5 Stars

What do I like?
I like that Alexis is a strong female. Men (even dragonmen) have a spectacular ability to piss off women and their communication skills suck when it comes to the women in their life.

It is a good introduction to a new series and I can't wait to read more about the secondary characters.

ARC Review: Bearly Hanging On (Laid Bear 3) by Marina Maddix

I have receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

Note: It took a while to get myself psyched about reading this book. I am not a fan of Chet's, even though I felt bad about him losing his mate. This book changed my mind. I'm still not a big fan but I am a little more sympathetic to his pain.

5 out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
I really liked Crystal's attitude towards Chet. She's all sass and attitude, taking him down a peg.

What did I not like?
I hate the attitudes of the clan, no one should have to choose between the love of their life and their family.

If you weren't a fan of Chet's in Laid Bear 1 & 2, this is definitely the story to read. I love that it ends before the tragedy, (I hate sad endings). It is a nice glimpse into Chet's psyche.
