Torn between her growing attraction to Aiden and heaven's siren song, Lindsey must learn the hard way whether love really can transcend all boundaries.

The master of hell has other plans for the Scottish Highlander and has sent a transporter of his own to get the deed done. Will Lindsey be able to save him or get caught in the crossfire?

I thought it was over, that all our troubles were behind us.

We had a fairytale castle wedding surrounded by family and friends. Aiden wore a dress kilt, looking so handsome it made my heart squeeze, and I floated on air in a white version of the ball gown he’d cast for me in Versailles. Flower girl, ring bearer, Scottish ceilidh afterward—check, check, and check. It was perfect.

We were supposed to live happily ever after.

But that was before I walked in to find another woman in his bed, a demon with blood red eyes who’d disguised herself as me in order to get what she wanted most: a child from a heaven transporter.

And it was in that moment—watching my entire world crumble to the ground—that I knew.

This was not over. Not by a long shot.

Deadly Crush ebook Giveaway and Review


Deadly Crush ( Deadly Trilogy #1)
by Ashley Stoyanoff
YA Paranormal Romance
Published by: Ashley Stoyanoff Books
Pub. Date: August 23, 2013
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥½

Summary ~ from goodreads ~

Dog Mountain is just like any other small town - peaceful and uneventful.  Well, that is if peaceful means wolves howling all night, and uneventful means it's overrun by pesky werewolves, then yes, Dog mountain is just your average small town.

Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesn't seem possible. The pack wants him just as much as she does.

Determined to keep him out of the packs's grasp, Jade does everything she can to gain his attention. Little does she know, Aidan is in deeper with the pack than she could have imagined, and competing for his attention is a deadly game, one she may not want to win

My Review from Goodreads:

Deadly Crush (Deadly Trilogy, #1)Deadly Crush by Ashley Stoyanoff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given an ARC for an honest review.

4½ stars!!

A great first book to a new series. Deadly Crush left me on the edge of my seat. Romance, suspense and action. A thrilling ride! Another OMG cliffhanger by Ashley! I was very upset that it ended. I need to read more! It was very difficult putting it down.

I fell in love with all the characters. Aidan, Jade, Dominic, Macy, Trevor and Jared. Reading the interactions of them all was fun. I love the name of the town Dog Mountain!

The main characters Aidan and Jade, find themselves intrigued and drawn to each other. Jade has livid in her town all her life and has grown up knowing that a pack of werewolves also live there. For the past two years she has been trying to avoid the pack. She now finds it very difficult to do that. It seems she has the unwanted attention of several pack members. She meets Aidan and hopes he doesn't get involved with the pack.

Aidan was just passing through her town and has now found himself a permanent resident and member of a new pack. As soon as he met Jade he felt drawn to her. She is very feisty, stubborn and shows no fear when talking to the pack. This has him intrigued and curious. But showing others he is interested in her may cause her death.

Ashley's books are wonderful! Her first series The Soul's Mark has a new unique story about vampires. Her new trilogy Deadly takes her readers on a new journey with werewolves and werecougars.

Here is my review from goodreads:

The Emerald Tablet (Legends of Amun Ra, #1)The Emerald Tablet by Joshua Silverman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given a copy for an honest review.

Thank you Joshua Silverman for a wonderful story. A story that is cleverly written using the present, history and the mythology from Greece and Egypt.

A quote from the summary, "Leoros' world is turned upside down".

Not only Leoros world, but many others as well. I like how the story tells of more characters lives being affected in many different ways. Everyone having to make important choices in their lives. Characters coming to terms of reality and learning it can be difficult to make decisions when the line between good and evil becomes blurred. Characters struggling with science, faith and emotions.

I highlighted a part of the book that stood out to me. A discussion between Alex and Camilla about love. Alex science tells him the emotions of love is similar to how large quantities of chocolate makes the brain react.
* Beware this part may contain a spoiler*

"Tell me Alex, would you die for me? For Leoros?"
Alex looks bewildered at her question. "What kind of Question is that? Iv'e killed for both of you already and I'm certainly ready to die for you."
She smiles at his response. "I know you have. I just wonder if you'd do the same for large quantities of chocolate."

Do not judge a Book by it's Movie..Be thankful for all of them...

Movies can get non readers reading!! Do not judge a Book by it's Movie!!!

I have read a lot of comments from fellow book lovers about how a movie has ruined their favorite book.
A movie will never ruin a book for me because nothing can take away my experience I felt while reading a great book.
I also have read comments on how disappointed a movie was because so much was changed or left out etc. 
I for one have felt disappointed with several  movies and I did not think a second movie would be made.
I could write a long post telling the many reasons for my disappointments but this post will not be about that.

 Working with school aged children, I have the joy of being able to talk to them about books they are currently reading. I am well known for my love of reading so when they are excited over a book I get book recommendations and they want to ask me questions about books I've read also.  They want to share their feelings about a story, and hear how I felt.

Over the years I have seen more children pick up a book because of a new movie being released or a movie they just saw. I have wonderful job that I can have discussions with children over how the movie was different, and what was left out. 
A movie may be bad for some, and fans may voice their criticisms about a movie, and fans may even go as far as telling others not to bother seeing the movie. Well  I say....See the Movie regardless of what you hear . I have many times decided to wait to see a movie later when it is released to Netflix or Red Box.  Go into all movies based on your favorite book with an open mind and the knowledge that there will never be a movie based on a book that is going to satisfy everyone. 

So to sum this all up....I am thankful for all movies based on books. These movies can get everyone talking, especially children, and it may start a spark of curiosity to non readers !!!
