My Skylar – Penelope Ward

My Skylar
Penelope Ward
epic romance

Mitch meets Skylar when they are just children, they form a bond and over the years become best friends. However life is not so kind to everyone they are seperated by family, education, illness, mistakes and disagreements. They reconnect through the years sometimes for good times and other times for the bad. This story takes you through those years and Mitch and Skylars' journey through life

I had heard a lot about Penelope Ward’s work , but this was my first book of hers to read, and wowzer i loved this so much one of the best books of the year i can tell you. When we meet Mitch and Skylar we know something serious has happened but we do not know the full story, over the course of the book we experience the highs and lows of the characters. My god Mitch was so lovely i felt for him by the end of the book for all he experienced. While Skylar has been through so much personally by herself and with other people close to her in life she is damaged in a different way to Mitch. There are hot scenes, such sad scenes my god my heart broke for these characters and then it soared hoping they would get together. I will not tell you the outcome, i do not write reviews that give away the story as i want you to enjoy it yourself. All i can say is if you do not read this epic, love story that transcends a persons lifetime you will be kicking yourself.

Precarious - Jokers' Wrath MC Book 1
Jokers' Wrath MC
Bella Jewel
4th august 2014

Ash is a prison warder, and she is a female who is respected amongst the prisoners and staff that is until a new inmate arrives - Krypt. During a prisoner transport Ash gets taken into Krypts world and she has to rely on him and his MC to protect and care for her. Can she do this and survive as the same person she once was.

I have been a fan of Bella Jewel for a long time ever since being introduced to the characters of Meadow and Axel. Dare i say it but i think my loyalties have changed to Ash and Krypt, my god this book did not let up. Bella Jewel has excelled herself this book was sooo hot, seriously i am sure my kindle was letting off sparks at one point it was that steamy. I loved how Ash was a independant woman who didn’t want to be restrained by any man or having a stifling relationship she still wanted to do what she wanted, while sharing her life with someone . I also love how she is a tough as nails girl, yes she is a woman but she can handle her own against men who are trying to intimidate her. Krypt meanwhile is all kinds of hotness, someone please locate me my local MC club to pick up an order of that kinda man 🙂 . The story ends well, i will not let you know how (that will spoil all the fun) and i devoured the pages of this book so easily and had such fun reading it. I look forward to reading more of the Jokers’ Wrath series

surrender

Surrender – Jennifer Burrows

Surrender
Jennifer Burrows
romantic suspense

Katherine has been living the dream, or so she thought. Unexpected events cause her to go to Italy on a journey of self discovery. On this trip she runs into a dark brooding man called Tony, what follows is a whirlwind trip round Italy where Katherine learns how strong she really is and what she has been missing out on. Tony meanwhile has his own demons to deal with while also dealing with Katherine and her life, now he has become embroiled in it.

I was lucky enough to be able to read an advanced copy of this book, and i have discovered a new author who i really enjoy. Jennifer Burrows transported me to Italy and though i have never been there i felt the heat of the summer, and the noise of the city squares. I felt for the pain Katherine was feeling, and the need to get away from life for a bit and to become detatched from her usual routines that appear to be stifling her existence. The dark and brooding Tony is a welcome addition to Katherine’s journey and he opens up her world to new feelings and experiences. The food described in the book, oh my god i am sure my mouth watered numerous times, and i now need to visit this country, it has always been on the bucket list of trips. But i just want to visit to experience the restaurants and wine like Katherine did, if i happen to come across a man like Tony i will not be disappointed. This book took me on my own little adventure from the comfort of my perfect reading space, and i could not be more happy to have read it. And as a little after thought this book finished in one of the most perfect cities in the world (in my opinion) i will not tell you which or where abouts in the city, as it will spoil the book. Surrender was a read that transports me away from the mundane to a world which is full of action, romance and exotic locations, thank you for that Jennifer Burrows.

movie
out now

Carl is a chef, and a damn good chef, he was the talk of the culinary world at one point. However he is now stifled by his boos, demands on his life, and the pressure he is put under becomes too much and he cracks. When i say he cracks i mean he cracks big style all over the internet. This spurns him on eventually to look at his life and what he is good at, and what he should really be focusing on-unique food for everyone. In the process he becomes a different person and his eyes are opened to what he has been missing out on.

I have been wanting to see this movie since i heard about it in my movie magazine subscription Total Film, seeing the trailer only increased the hunger to see this movie.
Jon Favreau has created a movie so delicious and heartfelt that i want to move to Amercia and eat from food trucks forever. While watching the cooking of the food, which Favreau trained to do i turned to my best friend and expressed how hungry i was, do not go see this movie on an empty stomach, eat something fulfilling before going. Robert Downey Jr does a great job as a quirky ex, but for supporting roles it has to go to the young boy who plays Favreaus son. I am afraid to say though John Leguizamo is outstanding as the friend who always has your back and will provide the light relief when needed 🙂 This movie also embraces the ups and downs of social media on our lives.

This movie will leave you feeling good about yourself and will show you sometimes you have to take the big risks in life to do something you are good at and to properly enjoy life and the people you call family and friends.

This movie has a great soundtrack i will be getting that at some point

A film to make you hungry for life.

I got this book to review and it was not what i usually read, but i was very surprised. The story is full of so much emotion and tragedy that all the characters have to overcome to be with the ones they love. The story is set over a long time period, but this does not make it hard to understand what is happening, in fact i feel it adds to the depth of the story and increases the tragedy involved. The love felt between
