Count On Me

Count On Me by Abigail GrahamCount On Me by Abigail Graham
For some reason when I read the blurb for this book I thought it was a whole different storyline than what the book actually was about. After reading the first quarter of this book I had to go back to Kindle Unlimited to make sure that there wasn’t some confusion with downloading the wrong book. But overall, it was a great read and I would recommend anyone interested to read it.

I got into this book thinking it was some damsel in distress book, where the heroine was stranded on an island with nobody but her and the hero. Although some part of that statement is true, that is not what the whole book is about. So if you were confused like me thinking this was all this book was about then know that you are in for more. Much more!

I was not expecting this paranormal side of the story where there is a curse involve and some suspense. The storyline kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out all the secrets behind the castle and it’s mysterious king.

I must admit that when the hero was introduced as a single father of three, I was about to give up since that’s a pet peeve of mine; even though he was a widow. I’m a firm believer in the hero and the heroine belonging to each other only. The character of the hero was adorable and I loved that he cared for his children although he was portrayed as this bad ass king. His loyality towards the heroine was remarkable and that made me love him more. I wish someday I can find me one of him.

The heroine was not a push over and I loved her curious mind. The only thing I really didn’t like about her was the way the author described her in this book. For some reason whenever I read her description I would picture this tom boyish looking girl playing dress up in those back in the days dress. I picture her being awakard and very unattractive. But that didn’t stop the chemistry between the hero and the heroine.

The ending however was very unbelievable and based on how the author decided to wrap the story up is the downfall for my rating.

Her Perfect Mate (X-Ops #1)

Her perfect mate (x-ops 1)Her Perfect Mate (X-Ops #1) By Paige Tyler

Recently, I was in the mood to read a supernatural book and searching through Goodreads, this book stood out and was the perfect match to my mood. 

I love books where the heroine is not a damsel in distress and could put up a good fight like any man could but still keep her femininity. And I also love any books that have an army/soldier as the hero, ovaries overload!!

The hero was a Commander for his own Specal Forces A-team and was pulled out at the middle of ongoing mission and was taken to Homeland Security where he learned that he was going to partner up with the heroine for a more important mission.

The heroine, who was working for the special organization in Homeland Security for a number of years could not find the perfect partner. Being apart of the organization meant that she had to team up with a male human which resulted with being looked down upon either because of her feline shifter abilities or because she was a woman. So she was not too excited when she was teamed up with the hero. She felt that he would treat her the same way her other partners did in the past and she gave him the cold shoulders although she was having internal arguments regrding her feelings towards him.

Before they were put out in the wild to go on missions together, they had to go through training and the heroine realized that he treated her as if they were the same. She eventually let her guard around him and sparks flew.

This book described the view I have of all army men. I dont know if reality is the same but the hero had this respect for the heroine and her abilities. He was not freaked out or felt less of a man because of what she was and could do, he respected her for what she was and used her abilities whenever it was needed. He didnt stood in the way like her previous partners did and bang against his chest to take lead because he was the man in the partnership. Becuase of that, from the very beginning I was all for the hero.

The only thing I didnt like about the heroine was that she felt the need to show off her abilities to the hero at the beginning  but at the same time I get why she did it because she never got a partner to appreciate her skills.

I love the intensity of the chemistry between the hero and the heroine and the fact that I get to witness the hero fighting for her against a wolf shift no less.

Beautiful book and a must read!!

Burn (Elemental Hearts #1)

Burn by jayelle morganBurn (Elemental Hearts #1) By Jayelle Morgan

I want to start this review off by thanking M.T. Munson Creating Worlds with Words for recommending this book to me. Please check her!! She is a fabulous author and a great reviewer.

In my previous post, I did a cry for help in finding a good book to read and I am happy to say that this book gave me hope that there are a vast amount of good books yet to be read.

This is a beautifully written paranormal romance book and hats off to the author. The heroine was a normal girl who never gave a second thought about any paranormal beings. She had just gotten promoted to her dream job and everything in life was perfect for her. Until she met the hero.

She met the hero at her post office and there is an instant connection between them. I love how the author expresses their connection and the conversation was very witty but funny when they first met. 

The hero is an alien warrior who saves earth daily with out the humans knowing. He works with a team who can control the various elements and his speciality was fire and for some reason he had troubles with controlling his element.

On the day that they met, the heroine’s apartment went up in flames and the hero was compelled to help her because of their connection. She woke in the hospital with vivid memories of the hero saving her and walking through the fire without being hurt. So she did what any sensible person would do when working for the newspaper, put a sketch of his face in it.

Though the hero couldn’t get her out of his head for days after the fire, he had no reason to contact her because of who he was. So when his commander tells him to make her stop putting his face in the newspaper because of their fear of being discovered, he was more than happy to do so.

On the day he showed up at her door however, he realized that she was in much danger than the fire.

What happens after? Did he caused the fire in her apartment? Does she finds out about who he really is? What was her reaction? You have to read this book to find out!!

I enjoyed reading this book and there was not a part that I hated. There is a book 2 called Rise and is set to be released on January 30th, 2017 and I am definitely adding it to my wish list.
