Book Review: Unraveling the Past by Beth Andrews

Title: Unraveling the Past
Author: Beth Andrews
Release Date: June 5th 2012
Publisher: Harlequin
Source: Received from the publisher via NetGalley

How do you work for a guy who took the job you wanted? Every time Captain Layne Sullivan runs into Chief Ross Taylor, she struggles with that issue. It doesn't help that he's a by-the-book cop who expects everything done his way. It also doesn't help that he's hot. Ignoring that little fact is impossible-she's tried!

Then Layne's world is turned upside down when human remains are discovered...and the case has a personal connection. Suddenly she's glad Ross is so thorough, because he'll get to the truth. And his search brings them closer, fueling the attraction that's out of control. As secrets and lies from the past surface, Layne's biggest challenge is fighting for a future-with Ross in it.

My Thoughts
Full of really well written characters, that are easy to like and connect with,
Unraveling the Past is definitely a great read.
The attraction between Ross and Layne is hard to miss, its full of tension, snarky banter, and sexual zing.
I love a good 'I'm fighting my attraction to you but...' book.

As with all great Super Romance's from Harlequin, there is also a really great story/mystery going on around the characters and plenty of family dynamics throwing surprises into the ring at every turn. 

The author, Beth Andrews has created a family that is easy to like, although far from perfect, with a storyline that sucks you right in.

This is the first in a series of 3 books featuring the Sullivan sisters, so the mystery of who killed their mother, Valerie Sullivan will be the continuing thread to carry the series forward, which is great because I really want to see how things pan out for everyone; especially Ross's niece Jessica.

A thoroughly enjoyable book and a 4 Star read ;]

Book Review: This Heart For Hire by Elysa Hendricks

Title: This Heart For Hire
Author: Elysa Hendricks
Release Date: October 12th 2011
Publisher: Self published
Source: Recieved from RomCon for the purpose of an honest review

A convent reared innocent and a gunslinger with no memory struggle to survive and find love while crossing the dangerous west Texas frontier.

Abandoned by his father and betrayed by his half-brother and fiancee on the eve of his wedding, JAKE GALLAGHER no longer believes in love. Though he longs to go home, his undercover work for the Texas Rangers keeps him in a lawless Texas border town. Even though it jeopardises his mission he refuses to stand by and watch outlaws rape and murder a young woman. Getting shot and losing his memory wasn’t part of his plan.

While fleeing from her stepfather’s plans to steal their ranch, CHRISTINA GOODWIN witnesses her brother’s murder and is left in the hands of a merciless band of outlaws. Raised in a strict convent, Christina has little knowledge of men or the world, its dangers and temptations. Frightened and alone, she is forced to accept the help of the dark gunslinger who rescues her. Though drawn to Jake’s potent masculinity, she hesitates to trust him, fearing her stepfather has sent him to bring her back. Unsure of Jake’s motives for helping her, she struggles against him, determined to find a way to avenge her brother’s death and regain control of her ranch from her stepfather.

My Thoughts

This Heart for Hire is action packed pretty much from start to finish.
A well paced, interesting story, full of conflict and excitement with plenty of sexual tension thrown in too.
While the story telling isn't perfect, there is a lot going on to keep you interested and caring about the characters.

The secondary characters are easy to like also and definitely worthy of their own book, and it'd be first in line to see what happens for them in the future.
My only real criticism would be that the ending is very abrupt which left me unhappy and definitely unsatisfied.
Still a good 3.5 Star read :]

Book Review: Elemental Reality by Cesya MaRae Cuono

Title: Elemental Reality (Elemental #1)
Author: Cesya MaRae Cuono
Release Date: August 21st 2011
Publisher: Revolution Publishing
Source: Purchased for my own reading pleasure

When Callie Pierce was ten, her mother disappeared without a trace. On the eve of her disappearance twelve years later, the earth seemingly comes alive. The elements speak to Callie, and that's only the beginning. Everything she has ever known was a twisted fabrication to protect her. Now the truth is set free. Callie and her sister are more powerful than any Faerie ever born. Now they have to use their powers to save their mother and family from the evil hands of fate that threaten to tear them apart. Welcome to her elemental reality.

My Thoughts

I have to start by mentioning the cover.
The cover whore in me has been aching to get my hands on this book since I first saw it.
GORGEOUS, gorgeous cover! Big ups to the cover artist for this masterful piece of sexy for the eye!
And not only is the cover smexy but each chapter page has some gorgeous elemental beauty on it too, I love it!

Elemental Reality is a faerie story.
A story with faeries unlike any you have seen before.
Fresh unseen powers with new rules, in an interesting and different world filled with dangerous demons out to stalk and kill.
The author has created a story where the old rules don't apply, her faeries don't follow the rules of the realms we have read about so many times before.
Cesya MaRae Cuono has created a brand new world with a fresh voice, full of new and exciting ideas.
And while some of those ideas might not appeal to lovers of a more traditional faerie tale, it definitely makes for a refreshing read.
However, the repetitive use of Aussie slang used could do with some work. Better research could add some credibility to the sentence structuring, as its a hard one to get right when your not familiar with the local lingo!
Admittedly a little bumpy in places, with a slightly unrefined storytelling flow, Elemental Reality is a great story for this young first time author.
Overall the writing was good and the story is an intriguing one but the ending did feel rushed.
And even though I had an idea of what was coming, I liked the cliffhanger.

A good start for a new and fantastical world, 3.5 Stars ;]

Cover Reveal!! Dirty Blood #3 by Heather Hildenbrand

Here it is...
The cover for the eagerly awaited Dirty Blood 3

That's right Blood Bond (Dirty Blood #3)
by Heather Hildenbrand is scheduled for an August 31st release date and I cant wait!

Here's the blurb to whet your appetite =D


If I had to choose one word to sum up all of my problems, this would be it.

Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to watch my best friend slowly becoming a monster. Without hybrids, I could let go of the mentality “hunt or be hunted.”

CHAS wouldn’t be scouring the Earth, intent on slaughtering and using Alex to do it. Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to be on guard that losing my temper meant losing my shape. There would be no monster inside me, struggling to get out.

Then again, without hybrids, I wouldn’t have Wesley St. John.

I really enjoyed Dirty Blood and Cold Blood
and I definitely cant wait to read Blood Bond
It looks and sounds AMAZING!

Book Review: Bog Frog Hop by Kyle Mewburn

Title: Bog Frog Hop
Author: Kyle Mewburn
Illustrator: Rebecca Cool
Release Date: May 1st 2012
Publisher: Little Hare
Source: Hired from school library

The soggy bog is home to ten polliwogs. They splosh and splash together in the rain and mud, until one polliwog turns into a frog. Now there are nine polliwogs in the soggy bog and one frog on the mossy log. As the rain continues to fall, more and more polliwogs turn into frogs and the bog comes to life with colour and sound. Even the local scriffy scruffy dog cannot resist the bog-frog hop!


My Thoughts

We LOVE books by Kyle Mewburn in our house and this is another to add to the favourites list.

Full of really great, funny and rhyming phrases, this counting, tongue twisting story will captivate even the wriggliest of monkeys you read it with!

Short on patience, my Miss 5 really got into the rhyming and was eager to see 'what comes next', and the splishy-splashy dog in particular was a big hit.

Here's what my reviewer in training had to say about Bog Frog Hop...
'The story was nice and funny'
'I like the rhyming words'
'The pictures are cool - happy and bright'

This book is a definite hit in our house and has already been passed around Mummy, Daddy, and two big sisters for multiple readings!

A very enjoyable 5 Star family read ~<;]

Book Review: The Guardian's Soul by Jamie Lynn Dougherty

Title: The Guardian's Soul (Samantha Brand #2)
Author: Jamie Lynn Dougherty
Release Date: May 2012
Publisher: Self published
Source: Received an e-ARC from the author for an honest review

The second installment to The Samantha Brand novels.

"How do you know if a soul is worth saving?" ~Sam

God has a plan for us all, even Samantha Brand.

It has been weeks since Sam lost Trent to the Devil, she fears she may have lost him forever but refuses to give up hope. Does Trent feel the same? After days of hunting Trent down, Sam finds herself the hunted as she gains a few new enemies that are out to destroy her at all costs. Everyone sees Trent as a lost cause except for Babs, who is more then willing help her sister out--even if that means getting into trouble in the process. Sam also has H.B., who hates seeing Sam throw herself so deeply down Trent's path but loves her too much to stop her. He would do anything for her, even if it means losing her forever.

Has Sam lost sight of God's big picture and has her love for Trent clouded her judgment?

Prophesies and sacrifice must go hand in hand to regain the balance between good and evil.

My Thoughts

I had the pleasure of reading book #1 in this series and you can read the review here

While I did have a few concerns with book #1, I genuinely enjoyed the story and so I was hoping to enjoy The Guardian's Soul as much if not more.
I'm still not sure if that happened for me.

TGS definitely answers some questions that were left open in book #1 and leaves the door open for other/parallel story lines in the future...but for some reason I just did'nt love it like I thought I would.

I struggled to connect with the characters this time round, especially Sam. 
I found her to be extremely annoying and honestly, she just frustrated me.
H.B was a mere shadow of his former wise-cracking self to begin with, and I didn't feel that Sam really 'got' him or understood his motives at all.
Babs and Dricus had very small and pretty insignificant supporting roles, and while half the cast of characters are Angels and Guardian's, there was a distinct lack of angel-like powers to aid or guide the story this time around.

I was struck though by how easily Trent's voice resonated with me.
Again, it was his voice that I connected with the most, I definitely felt his anguish.
And I have to say that Trent's whole role in this book really had me aching for more of his story.

While the zombie theme was an intricate part of book #1, I found it lacked some of that component this time around, and
Sam's new found ability to heal the eater's never really went in-depth, but the new spirit theme was a great addition and made for an interesting twist.

story did lack a little reading flow for me, I thought it tended to jump from one scene to the next.
However, in the last few chapters, there was more order to it all and the many strings of story did start to come together and I found the ending quite fitting.

But if I'm honest, I am a little sad and disappointed.
I expected so much more for this story, and I wanted so much more from the characters.

I don't know...
I don't want you to think I didn't like it, I did...but I don't know...

Its still a great 3 Star read and I'd be interested to see where else the author can take her characters in the future :]

Guest Blog and Giveaway with Kylie Griffin

It is my immense pleasure to welcome author Kylie Griffin to My Book Chatter, and boy are you guys in for a treat!
Kylie is going to share some insights into her sexy leading man Varian today, and as an extra special treat, she is also giving away a Varian T-shirt to one lucky commenter!!
Be sure to check the details at the end of this post for your chance to win.

So without further ado, please welcome, Kylie Griffin...

Kylie Griffin
G'day everyone! I've been looking forward to visiting Cath's blog for some time now and meeting some of her readers. I'm getting really excited about my book release for ALLIANCE FORGED (Bk#2 in the Light Blade series - Berkley Sensation, July 3rd 2012) and can't think of a better way to kick of my blog tour than starting here!

Now I know some of Cath's readers are into paranormal romance with a passion. So, I thought it might be of interest to some to learn a little about the hot guy on the cover. He's garnered quite a bit of interest, mostly from those of the female persuasion :-), although there have been a few guys asking why I used them as my cover model (they have quite vivid imaginations! LOL).

Back to the hot cover dude. If you haven't read the back cover blurb, I'd like you to meet Varian. He belongs to a race of people called the Na'Chi - a half human, half demon hybrid species. Not only is he the leader of a rag-tag bunch of outcasts but he's also a warrior. Being part demon he's inherited their incredible strength and enhanced senses and as he's of mixed blood these traits are augmented during battle (this is a Gift from the human deity known as the Lady). The Gift has kept him, and the rest of the Na'Chi, safe from the Na'Reish demons who consider them a bloodborn disgrace and would see them all dead.
Super Sexy Varian
Imagine having such abilities. Who wouldn't want to experience such incredible power and prowess in battle? Should I reveal now that Varian actually fears his Na'Reish heritage? For him, having such a Gift is a double-edged sword - it helps him protect his people but the kicker is the risk he takes every time he goes into battle. Letting his Na'Reish side loose leaves him open to battle-rush, an insatiable hunger to take a life, the thrill of the kill. That addiction could one day overwhelm him and turn him into a mindless beast who is unable to tell friend from foe. And having spent most of his life honing and using his Gift, Varian is finding it harder and harder to control that side of him.

Does he lose control? Yes.
Does he hurt anyone? Yes! (and I'm not referring to the Na'Reish demons he disposes of either)
More importantly, does he manage to conquer the beast? Well, that's something you're just going to have to find out for yourself when you read ALLIANCE FORGED! ;-)

Let's check out the cover again *grin* - yeah, I know, it's a burden, but someone has to do it, and it may as well be you!

If you look really closely at Varian's eyes you might notice they're a violet color. This is a special feature of the Na'Chi. But wait, there's more! There are flecks within the violet that change color with the moods and emotions they're feeling. It's one way to tell a Na'Chi from a Na'Reish demon.

If you've read VENGEANCE BORN, you'll have meet Annika, the heroine, who is also Na'Chi. And if you recall the scene in the forest when Kalan threatened to kill her, you'll remember the flecks in her eyes turned yellow. The emotion she was feeling was fear. Their eyes are an easy way for others to gauge what they're feeling.

Being a warrior-type, Varian gives new meaning to the words stoic and reserved, he keeps his emotions and thoughts pretty much to himself. So you'd think changing eye colors would come in handy for Kymora, our heroine in ALLIANCE FORGED, to discover what Varian's feeling, right?

Weeeeellllll ... no. She's blind.

But, like Varian, she has a Gift - the ability to read auras and through that their emotions, and the accuracy of her readings increase if she's able to make skin to skin contact. So while she can't see Varian's eyes she compensates for it this way. It made for some interesting scenes between them, especially once Varian found out about her Gift!

If you'd like to read more about Varian and Kymora in ALLIANCE FORGED you can visit my website to read an excerpt (http://www.kyliegriffin.com/AF_Excerpt.html).
In the meantime, here's the back cover blurb to whet your appetite:

(Book #2 of the Light Blade series)
There is no mercy in the demon realm. No escape. In this place of desperation and conflict, anyone who is not purebred is virtually powerless. Until a blind priestess lays claim to a half-breed warrior, body and soul…
Hunted and marked for death by Na’Reish demons for their half-blood heritage, the Na’Chi are searching for a new home—something an alliance offered by the human leader could provide. With both races divided by prejudice, when Light Blade rebels brutally attack the Na’Chi, the alliance seems doomed to fail.
Varian, leader of the Na’Chi, a hybrid race of gifted warriors, is cursed with the darker impulses of his demon heritage. Controlling the part of himself that craves the high of the battle is a struggle he’s afraid he’ll lose—until he meets Kymora Tayn, a priestess driven to serve her deity. While he’s unwilling to trust anyone outside his people, he finds himself drawn to Kymora’s strength and passionate nature, and discovers she has the power to calm the darkness inside him.
When the Na’Reish raid human territory for blood-slaves and kickstart a war, the key to the survival of both races—Na’Chi and human— is an alliance. However, when Kymora is kidnapped, pitting human against human, Varian realizes he must embrace his darker half, not only to save the alliance…but also the woman he loves.
Cath, thanks so much for inviting me along. I hope everyone has enjoyed learning a little more about Varian, my hero from ALLIANCE FORGED!
If you have any questions or would like to know more about either our hero or heroine, just ask. :-) 

Thanks Kylie, I for one can not wait to get my hands on Varian, I mean, a copy of Alliance Forged!

OMG Finally!!

J.R Ward is right up there on my list of fave authors...
but I'll be honest, I've lost interest in her Black Dagger Brotherhood
series and havent read books #9 and #10
However...thats going to have to change because book #11 is
Qhuinn and Blay's story!!
Can you say, about fricken time!!
And check out Qhuinn in all his OMG sexiness on the cover *swoons*

J.R Ward

Here's what the author had to say as to why only Qhuinn is on the cover:

"I do think it's going to be important for people to realize the story's going to be written as it comes (came) to me, and that they're not getting special treatment either for or against them because of their sexuality- to me, this story has always been about Qhuinn coming around and accepting who he really is and who he really loves- so the title and the cover was always about him in my mind. This is not to dimish Blay or his journey or his role- not at all. And it is not a case of the book focusing solely on Qhuinn and ignoring Blay's feelings (because he's going to have some big issues to deal with, too.) I just think Qhuinn's the one who's fought against their HEA and is the one who has to travel the most to get there. If that makes any sense?"

Earmarked with an expected publication date of  March 2013
you can bet the pre order numbers for this book are
going to break records!

Book Review: Kiera's Quest by Kristy Brown

Title: Kiera's Quest: Awakenings
Author: Kristy Brown
Release Date: October 17th 2011
Muse It Up Publishing
Source: Received from the author for an honest review

Meet Kiera, a pretty, intelligent, and talented girl, brought up by her uncle, and abandoned by her parents. Life is as normal as she believes it to be, apart from the deep ache inside her, telling her she’s different. For years, Kiera had dreams where she ventures into a different reality.
She’s not alone; a presence is always there, keeping her safe, yet she feels vulnerable, and hunted.
Zakk, Prince of Zantar, is under the Witch Queen’s spell as she tries to take over his world.
He crosses paths with Kiera, and their fates are entwined.
As their journey unravels, she learns that she is not the only one affected by this prince.
Who is on her side? Will she find out why she has been chosen?
How can someone so young, defeat such evil? Will she find the strength to save the ones closest to her?
Will this be Kiera’s only Quest?

My Thoughts

I found Kiera's Quest: Awakenings to be a really great start to a new and interesting world, it was well written and entertaining throughout.
I really liked that Zakk spent the first part of this story as a doll, i
t was definitely different; the banter between Zakk and Kiera was funny and I was kept interested in their plight against the evil Queen, while fighting off her minions.

With a fairly large cast of mysterious and captivating characters, Kiera's Quest is a fast paced and entertaining read.

Author Kristy Brown has done a great job of enticing the reader and I will be adding book #2 to my tbr pile when it comes out in July.
A 4 Star read ;]
