Brooke & Savannah are best friends and both ladies work at Hourglass a top fashion magazine in Denver. They both begin dating the hot guys Luke & Lucas little realizing that it is the same guy. What follows is a story that shows how men should never get in the way of friendships, and how women scorned are truly a force to be reckoned with.

I was very lucky to receive an arc of this book prior to release. What a fantastic read this was, and such a refreshing change to other romance books I have read. Yes the guys are hot and so are the best friends Brooke and Savannah, but what I loved most was the way the story kept you guessing on what was coming next. It was so funny and in places my nerves where all over the place for the best friends and what was happening to them and what they where doing to each other. This story shows how women are not to be messed with but how easily the charm of a man can affect a woman. I devoured this book over the weekend and I cannot wait for any future releases from these lovely authors. By the way I now want to visit Denver it sounds gorgeous the right mix of city and countryside, oh and a sampling of cute men 🙂

Seriously good tv

So I have been kinda busy recently reading a few arcs that have been very good and watching some seriously good TV when I can. I am loving penny dreadful on sky its dark,gothic and combines all those characters from the classic gothic horror books and adds in new characters also. I fully encourage you all to watch it. Also if you can catch the Mindy project on e4, that is a woman after my own heart with what she goes through in the most comedic way possible at times. 💕

Shattered Veil by Tracy E Banghart

Shattered Veil
Tracy E Bangheart

It is the not too distant future, women are needed o populate the planet so their roles are not ones that push their limits. But for one young girl in love she is willing ot take the risk to change that and have her happy ever after.

I received this book to review for a friends site, and i must say i was presently surprised. Futuristic stories are not something i have experienced before, but i enjoyed this. The story had strong female leads which i enjoyed seeing they took no messing from the men in the story and this is what teenagers need to read occasionally. Not always angst ridden stories but ones where the characters fight for what they want and need in life. I feel the book ended with the possibility of a second book being available as the story has the possibility to go forward with a new story line.

No Turning Back by Tiffany Snow

No Turning Back
The Kathleen Turner Series #1
Tiffany Snow
romantic suspense

Kathleen Turner just wants a quiet life and to keep paying her rent. Unfortunatley after falling into teh lap of her boss Blane a attractive lawyer Kathleen's life soon starts to unravel. Not only is she attacked and begins to fall in love but does she love Blane and can she trust him or anyone new who are arriving in her life. Book 1 in the Katheleen Turner series

I picked this book to read as it was on offer on amazon and what a good thing i did! This book is full of action, suspense and more importantly romance between kathleen and two brothers. Kathleen Turner is the every woman we all want to be add into the mix she is described as a gorgeous woman and has the ability ot make men fall at her feet. The situations she finds herself in with Blane and Kade are enough to set your kindle on fire. This is only book one and having read all the series i can tell you you will want to read the remaining four books.
If you love this book and Tiffany’s style of writing let me also recommend Blank Slate, and Turn on a Dime which is Blane’s POV and at present we are also awaiting the release of Kade’s POV in August 2014.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Starring: Chris Pine, Keira Knightey, Kevin Costner, Kenneth Branagh
Released: 2014
Director: Kenneth Branagh
This is the fourth reincarnation of the onscreen character of Jack Ryan this time played by Chris Pine. We have previously had Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin and Ben Affleck. Shadow Recruit fills in the gaps from watching the previous movies and it shows us how Jack met and fell in love with his wife Cathy.
Kenneth Branagh directs the movie and stars as the Russian villan, he has the right amount of menacing and cunning to get just under Jacks skin to thwart his attempts to protect his country.
Chris Pine is a worthy successor to the previous actors who have played Jack Ryan, he has the action credentials and has the emotions to show how he is feeling in his new role for the CIA.
I really enjoyed this movie and hope a follow up starring the same characters is going to come out in the future.
