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

The Kathleen Turner Series #1
Tiffany Snow
romantic suspense
e-book, paperback

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.

His Paris Affair by Christina Ow

I received this book as an arc for a review, and i must say that having never read anything by Christina Ow before i really loved her writing style and the story. I would have given it 4 stars if i had read the other books in the series before this one. However do not let that stop you from reading this book it can most definitley be read as a stand alone novel. The description of Paris was so rich and full of description that i now have to visit this city at some point to see if it is as described.

The story is told from the POV of both lead characters Melody and Ruiz. Ruiz the male lead was just the right blend of alpha male but also had a side to him that he didnt let be shown, except to the reader. Melody meanwhile is a character who falls in love fast and does not know how to connect what emotions of the heart she experineces with those of the head and what is occurring around her. An ideal summer holiday read, and i will most certainly be reading more of Christina’s work in the future.
