Karma & Melodies by Katie Salidas (ebook review)

Kendra used to spend her days organizing events for Café Enigma while daydreaming about Marcus, the sexy lead singer of Normal Paradox. But all those dreams of becoming Mrs. Rock Star died, along with her mortality, the moment Hector entered her life and turned her into a vampire.

Ten torturous years later, Kendra finally escapes Hector and runs straight into Marcus. (Well, actually, he hit her with his car, but that's beside the point.) The accident leaves Marcus concussed and a few pints too low, forcing Kendra to share her blood to save him.

Sharing her blood doesn’t just heal Marcus’s wounds; it bonds him to Kendra in a magical “can’t live without you” sort of way. Now he’s professing his undying love to her, and Kendra’s not sure if he’s for real or just experiencing the side effects of their new blood bond. Either way, the two of them can’t be separated without suffering suicidal levels of depression, and the band needs to hit the road for the rest of their cross-country tour.

Kendra’s content to travel with the band and explore her new-found relationship, until whispered threats from her master, Hector, start invading her dreams. He’s tracking her down, and she can feel it. She knows the horrors he’s capable of, and if he finds out about Marcus, Hector will do everything in his power to destroy him.

If she stays, Marcus is doomed to Hector’s wrath. If she goes, the repercussions of their bond might kill Marcus. Both options will break Kendra’s heart. If they’re truly meant for each other, they’ll have to find another way....

Instantpeel Review

Product Description
The Instantpeel Natural Exfoliant is one of the most exciting, powerful yet gentle products on the market that is polluted with goods that promise beauty heaven, but deliver just a big price tag. This peel sticks to its promises, for a fraction of the money one would spend in a beauty salon. Instantpeel is easy to use while taking a shower. it is amazing how smoothly dead skin peels off without irritating healthy skin layers. After the short treatment, the skin feels soft and silky with a radiant complexion. I highly recommend Instantpeel to every one who desires younger and healthier looking facial skin.

My Review 

I admit I have never been to a spa and I really have no interested in going to a spa. I guess it could be because I am more tomboy. Don't get me wrong sometimes I do enjoy putting on creams to make my skin nice and to make myself fell beautiful . 
Anyways, I tried this Instantpeel and it really did make my skin feel nice and soft and has a nice glow. This is really a great product.

It is very simple to do.. You just open the InstantPeel packet and squeeze a small amount at a time onto your fingertips. As you massage InstantPeel onto your face and neck, individual peels of dead skin will emerge. There's no need to rub, as with facial scrubs, and there's no irritation or burning so often associated with glycolic acid peels, chemical skin peels or dermabrasion. 

The box comes with 6 packets of the Instanpeel and it is $50 per box.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Ten Good Reasons To Lie About Your Age by Stephanie Zia (ebook review)

When Sally Lightfoot’s music producer husband is suddenly killed in an accident, Sally has to put her life back together from scratch. But what life? Her kids have grown up and now she’s no longer a wife. Or a business partner and backing singer. Or even a caterer to the endless turnover of rock bands passing through Strawberry Hill Studios’ kitchen. To make matters worse her caring but interfering neighbour, Val, appoints herself Principal Grieving Companion. After sharing several decades with a much-loved but powerful partner and refereeing 2 children with very different personalities, harmonizing and blending in become Sally’s undoing.
One year on and, realizing the dangers of her growing passion for Gardener’s Question Time and cosy nights in with Sudoku and the telly, Sally determines to follow the ten point action plan in her self-help book How to Win as a Widow. She reconnects with her old friend, feisty ex backing singer mate, Ramone, who sexes up Sally’s list considerably. Sally must get out there again and lose her wididity, her born-again virginity, Ramone insists, before it’s too late. The idea only makes Sally miss her irreplaceable husband even more. But, as Sally struggles to cope with travelling alone on a (long overdue) holiday to the Greek island of Hydra, she falls idiotically but passionately in lust with a Leonard Cohen tribute singer. They’re both around 50 and get along famously but he only has eyes for the girls and doesn’t, she knows, see her ‘in that way’. Her challenge is to stand up for herself and ask for what she wants. But can she fulfill Ramone’s wididity challenge? Or would she simply be making the biggest fool of herself ever? What is the coolest, most sensible choice? To live the rest of her life safely and gracefully or to take a spirited stab at life back in the fast lane by chancing the dangerously disgraceful route?

Servant of the Lich by Chris Wilmsmeyer (book review)

Hannibal Balinci had it all. The wizard, at the age of forty-four, had just about everything in life that a man could hope for: love for his wife, passion for his work, and enough wealth to sustain him for a thousand lifetimes. For the first time since he could remember, Hannibal Balinci felt happy.

Unfortunately, he had built that happiness on a foundation of lies. Now, as the warm summer winds from the Dark Sea blew across the land of Andora, Hannibal's cold past finally caught up with him. In the first installment of a spellbinding epic, Hannibal faces the most difficult challenge of his life.

Not all is as it appears across the land of Andora... and Hannibal rushes to stay ahead of the wheels of danger, already spinning out of control. An unlikely group of heroes, poised to stop the sinister forces that have set their sights on this prospering land, will have to a face a group of adversaries beyond imagining.

terror awaits the brave and dangers await the foolish...

...when the darkness comes

My Review

First off this is not the kind of book I would usually read so I didn't really expect much.
I was quite surprised though that I really liked this book. It is very well written and makes you want to keep reading it. Very easy to imagine the characters in my mind too.
I highly recommend this book.

My Review

This is a romantic comedy but I didn't really find it that funny. Sure there were some funny parts but it was really not as funny as I expected it to be. It was a ok movie and I might watch it again. It is not one of my favorite movies but I will most likely watch it again at some point when I am in the mood to watch this genre of movies.

MY SUPERHERO SISTER by Toni LoTempio (ebook review)

Holly Hamilton has always been perturbed by the way her older sister, Ellen, seems to get everything.  It's especially tough living in the shadow of your sister's cape when she's a super heroine named Suprema!

With one super-parent and one not, it was inevitable that the girls would turn out different.  Unfortunately for Holly, she takes after her earthling mother. Ellen has taken over their retired father’s role as Century City's reigning superhero, balancing school and super-duties with remarkable ease while it’s a struggle for Holly to get through her English class without mishap, not to mention those Cheer Squad tryouts!
The girls learn their father’s old nemeses, Anti-Hero, has escaped from his Space Prison, and they’re concerned – Anti-Hero nullified their father’s powers once – what else does he have in store for him and Suprema?  When another teen superhero extraordinaire appears on the scene, they’re even more puzzled.  Who is Magna Boy? Is he friend or foe?  And does he have a connection to Anti-Hero?   The appearance of two  new guys at school, teen heartthrob Tad Barker and nerd Ed McGee, set Holly and her sister to wondering—and arguing—could one of them be the new super kid on the block?  If so, which one?
Working with her friend Mona and her scientist uncle, Holly finally uncovers Anti-Hero’s dastardly plot – he intends to capture Suprema and Magna Boy and siphon their powers for himself!   Before she can warn her sibling, however, Anti-Hero strikes and captures the superheroes.  Now it’s up to Holly to use her ingenuity and prove to everyone, but most of all herself, that you don’t’ have to be a superhero for good to win out over evil…or to nab a super-boyfriend, either!

My Review

I  read this pretty quick.It is a easy read with only 190 pages. Very good YA book (Young Adult) book.
Not much interesting to adults but I know if I were a tween or teen this would be a book I would have loved.

If you have a tween or teen then I think this will be a great book for them

Credo’s Hope by Alison Naomi Holt (book review)

Introducing Detective ALEXANDRA WOLFE, a fresh, funny, tough cop who skates on the edge of the law in her quest for justice. A Mafia boss, a hunky bi-sexual nurse, Alex’s rescued mutt, Tessa, and her exuberant best friend, MEGAN, help Alex turn her everyday life as a detective upside down.

Six years ago, Brian McClelland was murdered, and his brother was convicted of shooting him. When Megan bullies Alex into reviewing the case, Alex discovers that her captain was the chief investigator who overlooked evidence that might have proved the brother’s innocence.

Against the captain’s orders and Alex’s better judgment, she unofficially re-opens the case and finds herself following a twisted investigative trail left by the murder victim. The problem is, she has no idea what he was investigating or whether his investigation ultimately led to his death.

As she digs into clues from the past, she finds herself at the doorstep of the beautiful and daunting Giannina Angelino, who just happens to be the head of the Angelino Crime Family. Things really heat up for Alex when she starts to receive unsolicited help from the mafia, and the police department, once again orders her to stay away from the murder investigation and from any connections with organized crime. This in itself proves difficult since Gianina doesn’t answer to Alex’s chain of command and continues to help wherever and whenever she sees fit.

Alex’s unorthodox methods blur her personal and professional lives and when her two worlds collide, keeping her day job becomes the least of her worries as Alex struggles to keep from following the dead man’s trail straight to her own demise.

Turned (Book #1 in the Vampire Journals) by Morgan Rice

In TURNED (Book #1 of the Vampire Journals series), eighteen year old Caitlin Paine finds herself uprooted from her nice suburb and forced to attend a dangerous New York City high school when her Mom moves again. The one ray of light in her new surroundings is Jonah, a new classmate who takes an instant liking to her.

But before their romance can blossom, Caitlin suddenly finds herself changing. She is overcome by a superhuman strength, a sensitivity to light, a desire to feed--by feelings she does not understand. She seeks answers to what’s happening to her, and her cravings lead her to the wrong place at the wrong time. Her eyes are opened to a hidden world, right beneath her feet, thriving underground in New York City. She finds herself caught between two dangerous covens, right in the middle of a vampire war.

It is at this moment that Caitlin meets Caleb, a mysterious and powerful vampire who rescues her from the dark forces. He needs her to help lead him to the legendary lost artifact. And she needs him for answers, and for protection. Together, they will need to answer one crucial question: who was her real father?

Project Renaissance by S.D. Livingston (ebook review)

What’s a modern-day Renaissance girl to do? That’s exactly what Emma Thomas is about to find out. Moving three thousand miles to Manhattan to discover her destiny hasn’t turned out quite like she planned. She’s just lost her job, her roommate’s impossibly perfect, and she’s still plain old Emma, the girl with no direction and no idea how to get there—until she stumbles on a little advice from the Renaissance, that is.

Cindy Lee Perkins’s latest self-help book promises that history can guide Emma to her true purpose in life. It’s just the thing to launch Emma on a Renaissance project of her own and she throws herself into following Cindy Lee's bestselling (if slightly dubious) advice.

But the more Emma tries to reinvent herself the more she turns her world, and everyone else’s, upside down. From a disastrous cosmetics launch to a pet psychiatrist with quirks of his own (and a few more blunders along the way), Emma begins to suspect she’s not the only one who doesn’t have things figured out.

Then again, maybe the answer’s been in front of her all along . . .

My Review 
 Wow! A awesome book. I read it last night and good thing I didn't have any plans because I couldn't put it down. I do not read chick lit often and I am usually very picky in this genre but this is one of my favorites. Like all chick lit it is an easy read. 
If you are into chick lit that is funny and easy to read then I highly suggest this book.

Illumination – How One Woman Made Light of the Darkness by Sophia Van Buren

On Sophia van Buren’s 14th wedding anniversary, the police come knocking on her front door. The news they bring about her husband triggers a revelation that instantly causes Sophia’s suburban life to collapse. It destroys one world, but creates another and will ignite something within her, forcing the woman buried under years of diapers and coupons to emerge.

Illumination is not a bitter lament. It’s a modern mother’s odyssey – a quest for hope, levity, and the courage to follow one’s inner light through dark times. Sophia does find hope, but first she must overcome the shadows cast by those conditioned to judge. Ultimately, Illumination is a story of rebirth and true love that begins where Sophia’s previous world ends.
