An Unwilling Husband ~ Tera Shanley

an unwilling husband

This is one of those books where the title is why you start reading it. Or maybe that is just me … LOL who really knows. I found this book to be interesting.

Margaret is brought up to be a lady of high society. Named after her aunt, who despised her for reasons she did not learn until she was an adult. Torn from the only person she new as her father at a young age because her mother could not handle the old west town they lived in. Margaret runs from Boston to the place she only hopes will accept her without the harsh judgment that she has received all her life.

Being in Garret Shaw, the only person Margaret has ever loved. Sadly, he sees that her leaving with her mother as a betrayal … not only for him but also for her father. Duty to her dying father forces them to wed … from there things have there ups & downs. But in the end, it comes down to if they can understand & let go of the past.

Ms. Shanley has created an interesting tale that draws you in & keeps you reading. I have read from her, but she has been able to go from one genre to another & still keeps you wanted you to keep reading.

PODs ~ Michelle K. Pickett


Walking into your home & your parents quickly turning off the TV. Now, most would think “porn,” in this case it “the end of world” report. Instead it turns into “pizza & game night.”

After this the government, choose by “random,” the survivors of this plague to live in “POD’s” for at least one year. Which they are “hoping” give the plague time to kill itself off …  or whip our mankind. Which ever comes 1st ….


Ms. Pickett’s writing is pretty good. She does not go into extreme detail of what the disease is … thank goodness for me, that gets to be far to boring … but does go into enough to know it’s pretty horrid.
The way she creates the character’s, she brings you to like or despise them. Like Josh, the POD’s prick, who is rude & slobby plus he think the world OWES him. You just want to crawl into the book & slap him around a few times to see if  you can knock him into common sense. Then  you have Eva, who is you MC, and you have decent feelings for her. She is a decent person, caring and honest, who sadly has to run into a few types of individuals that will make her wonder about the world.

Ms. Pickett’s describes a world, pretty much like the one we live in, facing a plague that many of have prepped for. Or rather it’s on their prep list, I think. The end of mankind by disease or plague. She does a great job, in my opinion, describing the government.

Chants, Cheers, & Jumps ~ Craig Peters


I began reading this because my granddaughter was going to be a cheerleader. So, I needed to know what they knew … right? I ended up getting all the cheer books “just in case.”
Chants … easy. I understand, and have seen them do many times. Same with jumps & cheers. But did you know that each of these are labeled differently. That it takes more than “learning” this or that movement to learn a cheer.
My granddaughter wants to be a cheerleader … well darn it, I am  going to do my best to help her. LMAO Even if I make a fool out of myself learning these at 42/43 yrs.

If you want to learn about Cheer Leading, this is a book to start with. It will help you in so many ways. (Good luck!)

Unleashed ~ Rebecca York, Susan Kearney, Diane Whiteside, Lucy Monroe


You began with a dream of his mate, soul mate. But there is a witch who is making it hard for them to be together, driving them apart.
So, what does our genius of a man do? Try to trick the woman in to falling for him in real life, NOT telling her that “yes, I was in the dream” & “yes, we do know each other.” Plus “no, you are not crazy.”
All to save his island … men.


Believe that he should NOT be soul mates with a mortal. Our Master Vamp does everything in his power to scare off this determined lady … who wants nothing more than to find her sister. Plain & simple.
This Master Vamp does EVERYTHING to drive this woman nuts!
 cold shower




She has loved him from the time she met him. And he has loved her but as a wolf, he cannot mate with her because it will be for life … only she doesn’t know. But of course they (his family) thinks she knows.
It’s her way or no way … and it tears him to a part. Will he pull his head out & figure out not all women run? Or will he let his true soul mate go?


More about New Atlantis. She is kidnapped, brought to a deserted island & told she is “special.” Like he is … she believes she is seriously drugged or something. But eventually begins to come around to his thinking. Will she go all the way or is it a ploy to get off the island?

The Inventor (The Legend Chronicles 0.5) ~ Theresa Meyers


Sir Turlock is one of the best Inventors in England. Currently, he is showing his invention to the Queen in hopes of invited to become one of the scientist who work for the kingdom.
Lady Hargrieve is not your typical “lady” of the times. She loves to tinker with anything she can get her hands on. Her father allows this only to get the knowledge she discovers about each scientist & their work.
A short but sweet love story between two like minded individuals. One of true love that you can see from the start.

But being apart of the world where things are not exactly what they appear … that always changes things, right? Lady Hargrieve’s family is part of the Hunter’s, and she holds the something of value. She is hunted because of it.
In the end, Sir Turlock must choose her safety over his desires. Her safety over his love. Which is better? Or are they safer together?

Girl Parts ~ John M. Cusick


Actually read the book, without jumping to the wrong conclusion, you will find it’s a pretty decent read. For a parent/grandparent, it is a good read because it brings younger life into perceive … into a view I had not seen before. Then placing the reader so they understand three view points.
Mr. Cusick did a decent job describing 3 (in my opinion) well developed main character’s. Plus the extras, as well as the story to back their story … it will either just suck you in or have you walking away. (It’s that type of tale.)
Two completely opposite teen boys, add a “teen girl” for a companion. Actually, you are given Rose, our “teen girl,” who comes to life on David’s drive-way, as his companion. Rose is “treatment therapy” for David to overcome dissociation. It would seem that “in today’s society we have” that issue far too often in teens. David’s parent’s decided to use the “companion therapy” for him. Charlie, who was given the same choices, decided on counseling. David & Charlie are connected to Rose in different ways, and her to both of them.
But sadly from here you must read to learn the rest. LOL no spoilers this time 🙂 🙂 🙂

Note to Self: Change the Locks ~ Heather Balog


What would you do (if you had one) you ex-husband showed up right before you were suppose to get MARRIED? In your apartment, that you LOCKED, because you never changed the lock or moved from the same place you lived with him?
Ring Lock

Well, our MC Elizabeth is about to find out. Because in walks Simon, needs a place to stay after getting evicted from his apartment. So, he runs to HER for help.

That is NOT the 1st problem. Elizabeth has YET to tell her current FIANCE, Austin, about her 1st marriage & Simon in general.

Now, most of us would not end up in this situation … right? But our poor Elizabeth seems to be a walking CLUTZ that ends up in situations like this just by simply breathing. (Kind of makes my heart go out to her, a lot!)

Most of us would lock ourselves in our rooms & dial 911. But she seems to have such a sweet heart, that she does try to help. Ladies, we have to give her a hand, because she really tries to give her ex help.

The story is interesting & worth the read. If you read like I do, sometimes you need that “break” to easy your mind … or you will never sleep because of the stories you read LMAO. I really enjoyed reading this story.
I will keep this writer for future “break” reads!!!
