Synopsis

 

Cottonbloom is the perfect place for starting over, finding your way back home—and falling head over heels. . .From award winning author Laura Trentham comes Set the Night on Fire: A Cottonbloom Novel.

Ella Boudreaux has a lot to prove to her family, friends, and foes—and to herself. So when her marriage ends she decides to invest her energy and money into a place that brings back some of Ella’s happiest memories: the Abbott brothers’ garage. Maybe, if she puts her mind to it, she can teach skeptical, stubborn Mack Abbott how to make the business a true success. Which would be a lot easier if the hunky mechanic didn’t make her motor run quite so fast…and hot.

Mack was furious when his brother, Ford, sold his share of the business. He’s in no rush to team up with a wealthy divorcée who shows up to the garage in stilettos—and the longest, sexiest legs he’s seen in forever. But Ella’s grit and determination won’t quit…and soon Mack can see that she’s been down a few rough roads herself. Neither Mack nor Ella can deny the fierce attraction that’s revving up between them. Could it be that true love has been in the backseat all along…and they’ve finally found the key?

Happy Kind Of Bloggy Birthday To Me! Yay!


So this number is what popped in my notifications at 11pm?! Like what??? You wait until the last minutes of the dag to congratulate me. Well shit on that.

Well to be honest, it took me some time after registration to even post a post of sorts due to technical problems *sighs* but I got it straight. So to be honest, I am just going to call it a year I have been blogging because I have no idea what day to celebrate and I am going by WordPress’s little note of joy so YAY!!!🎊🎆🤗

I am so glad I started blogging not only because of the joy of books but because honestly I couldn’t have made it through this year without the joy of interacting with you guys. You all are the cheese to my macaroni and this chick has never met more phenomenal people ever!

As I think about on my year of blogging, I have realized that I can open up to this public forum more than a therapist or loved ones and no one ever makes me feel bad for being crazy old me. As a new blogger, I must admit it was exhausting and it took so much time and effort but all of it was worth it. This is the time where I would mention all the people damn, theres so many to name! that stand out and have made a big difference such as Kim, Pete, Carrie, Fraggle(Waffles), sweet Michel, Trang & Lashaan, Stephanie, BiblioNylan, Robbie, Jay, Didi, Kay, Inge, Nina, Jaynie, Sophie, Angelina, Nicole, Kristi, my friends that have more than one of themselves, my friends who write about sexiness, my friends who take such beautiful photos that I am able to travel through their art, my artists friends, my friends with TBRs that will never end but insist on adding books to them and damnit my list could go on forever so please forgive me if you weren’t named. I am sleep deprived, catching up and kicking ass as usual and damn did I ramble the fuck on or what?! But overall I just want to say that blogging was the best decision I ever made.

I love the fucking books. I love you guys even more and damn do I love the blogosphere even though WP has been against me. I will continue to try seven different times to comment on your blog posts!!! Mwhahaha! You guys are the bee’s knees and thank you for help giving me one of the best years of my life. Also cheers to WP 🍻🍻, May you take me out of spam folders, stop judging me, and fix my errors! *Hallelujah*

Why not end this with some laughter?! I hope you guys have a great freakin day. Love y’all in the mouths! Xoxoxo!

Book Review: Madam Love, Actually by Rich Amooi


I would like to thank Rachel @ Rachel’s Random Resources and the author for providing me with an opportunity to be part of his awesome blog tour. Unfortunately, I was plagued with technical difficulties that kept me from writing my post. I’m very sorry this happened and am appreciative for the copy. All views expressed are my own.


 

Lance Parker is an arrogant know-it-all. As author of the bestselling book Your Soulmate Doesn’t Exist, he says love is for losers. Madam Love is a fortune teller and matchmaker who has brought hundreds of couples together. When the two clash during a radio interview, she admits even someone as irritating and impossible as Lance has a soulmate. He says she’s delirious and a fraud. Then the gauntlet is laid down: Madam Love has two weeks to prove Lance wrong and find him a soulmate. When Lance meets wonderful Emma by chance, he doesn’t know what to think anymore. But Emma has a secret. She’s Madam Love, actually. And it’s going to take a whole lot more than a crystal ball to get her out of this mess.

 

This was a phenomenal romance! When Rachel first sent me an email about this book, I was over the moon. It was a romance novel featuring a fortune teller as the main character! I feel that this novel could have easily been a film as well!😀 The worldbuilding and plot was phenomenal! 

I found myself laughing through The night while reading this one The main characters were great in every way and they went through the plot in the most ideal way possible. There was also so much than what you read at first glance and thought Lance & Emma made a swoon worthy couple. I also loved that the main character is a fortune teller since I do a good bit of fortune telling myself. This novel was truly something magical and I couldn’t recommend it enough!💖

Book Review: Destined by Gail Cleare


From my #bookstagram @bookishdani

I want to thank the author for providing me an eARC in exchange for an honest reviews. All opinions expressed are my own.

This is the year Emily learns how to deliberately shape the future. She gets the courage to walk away from her safe routine and takes a job at the fabulous curio shop owned by Henry Paradis, an occult scholar. Recognizing her psychic talents as the valuable gifts they are, Henry teaches Emily to accept her magical nature and “look forward.” She chooses the path to light, finds lifelong friends, falls in love with an incredibly sexy man, learns the power of desire and intention, faces her worst fears and is swept toward awakening.

The mystical images of the Tarot’s archetypal trump cards chart the way, 22 sequential steps along the path to success known as “The Fool’s Journey.” Illustrated by images from the Payen Tarot of Marseilles (1713), which is the oldest surviving Tarot deck.

Reviews Quoted from Popular Sources!

“Cleare’s narrative follows Emily, a young woman on a path of self-realization and awakening…The novel is well plotted…offers a little bit of self-help and a little bit of chick lit, packaged together with a positive, make-your-own-destiny message: a pleasant, comforting read.” – Publishers Weekly

“A thoughtful and much recommended novel of tarot. Through the unknown, we can find something magnificent. “Destined” tells the story of Emily, who takes a job at a curio shop and delves into the occult and mystery. A novel of romance and the life of the occult and the tarot, it’s a fascinating break into this culture and the belief in mysticism.” – Midwest Book Review

This book was fantastic! I know you might be thrown off a little by all the Tarot stuff but it’s not all about Tarot. It’s about a girl who goes through a new journey and experiences everything that the Major Arcana of the Tarot can explain. I love how the chapters are titled after the Major Arcana of the Tarot and she surely goes through her share of experiences. There is so much more to the main characters then what first meets the eyes. Sure she works in a bookstore and it has a swoon worthy romance but it also has depth and I was able to finish it within a day. I loved this novel and it was a treat to read and I can’t wait to read the author’s other works. Highly recommended!😁📚❤

30th Birthday Dani Time!😍


Hello my loves!!!😍 Today, I just wanted to write a post because I wanted to thank so many for the birthday wishes when I told only a select few!😁 It really made my day and this community never seizes to amaze me!💖

I am going to be honest and say that this is one of the worst and one of the best birthdays that I ever had in my life.

It’s the best because I now have you. Of course my kids always make things better but it’s better because of you.💖

Celebrating my birthday is not the event or day that most people have mine has always been a curse to me. To be real and honest, my 6th birthday was the first day of of my torturous abuse so every year was a “special” occasion and my birthday was always the day I got it the worst of worst because “I was getting too old” for my abuser. Everytime I had a birthday it made me less valuable to him financially and to him for his personal reasons. I am not going to go into details because that may trigger some but it was a day I dreaded my whole life.

Not only did I try to escape this day altogether and would freak out any time someone would buy me a gift or try to do something for me, when I escaped it there was always something bad that happened that day that just justified that birthdays for me were the worse. Everyone I love I tried to go all out but for me, we avoided it like the plague.

After reading Michel’s sweet post last night and seeing how many people cared about me, it just overwhelmed me with love. Today even as I dreaded this day all year and looked at all the gray in my hair and knew my 20s were behind me, I felt loved. I really do. I feel loved even though I have no idea how I am going to pay my electric bill and my trusty water cut off but it doesn’t matter as much because for the first time in my life, I know that there is people in my life that haven’t seen me in person and hear my flaws but all they give is love in return so for my 30th birthday with your help I am saying fuck my tradition, I am going to celebrate making it another year and coming this far and I owe it to each and every one of you. I can’t thank you enough, lovelies! You ROCK!🤩💖👑💎

Synopsis (1).pngCourtney Wallace loves her job as a wedding planner, but she’s almost given up on her own happily-ever-after. She certainly doesn’t it expect to find it with Matthew Lyndon, the hotshot lawyer she overhears taking a bet to seduce her. She’s not amused by the challenge, but she decides to play along–after all, what better way to beat him at his own game? 

Matt never intended to take the bet seriously. And moving next door wasn’t part of his strategy to win-it was just a happy coincidence-but the more he gets to know Courtney, the more intrigued he becomes. When fun and games turn into something real, will these two decide they’re in it to win it?

My Thoughts_1Wow, this novel tops the charts for being super sweet! This is the type of novel that is swoon worthy and the author will definitely leave a smile on your face from this sweet read! This is the fourth book in the series but they are on a standalone basis so you can read them in whichever order you prefer. I first came across Hope Ramsay’s work when I read a novella of her’s that was added to the end of another romance novel as an added bonus and it was a big bonus indeed that stuck with me, so when I saw this novel, I knew I had to request it! I am so glad that I requested this novel and it made me smile when I need it the most and what else could you want in a novel? The characterization was great and I bonded with the characters and the plot was steady yet descriptive. Overall, it was a sweet story added to the series and I highly recommend it to fans of romance! xoxoxo!

Synopsis A continuation of USA TODAY bestselling author Leonard Goldberg’s The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Treason is a new intriguing locked room mystery for Joanna and the Watsons to solve.

The following case has not previously been disclosed to the public due to the sensitive information on foreign affairs. All those involved were previously bound by the Official Secrets Act. With the passage of time and the onset of the Great War, these impediments have been removed and the story can now be safely told.A Study in Treason (The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes Mystery #2)

When an executed original of a secret treaty between England and France, known as the French Treaty, is stolen from the country estate of Lord Halifax, Scotland Yard asks Joanna, Dr. John Watson, Jr., and Dr. John Watson, Sr. to use their keen detective skills to participate in the hunt for the missing treaty. As the government becomes more restless to find the missing document and traditional investigative means fail to turn up the culprit, Joanna is forced to devise a clever plan to trap the thief and recover the missing treaty.

Told from the point of view of Dr. John Watson, Jr. in a style similar to the original Sherlock Holmes stories, A Study in Treason is based partly on facts in our world and partly on the facts left to us by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Full of excitement and intrigue, this mystery is sure to be enjoyed by fans of Sherlock Holmes as well as the works of Laurie R. King and Charles Finch.

Book ReviewWow, I absolutely just love this series now!😍 Well I just read this book which is the second one but I fell in love and it has all the awesome Sherlock Holmes Feels! I was so excited when I received an email alerting me that I was granted a wish from the publishers! St. Martin’s Press, you guys rock!😉💜📚
This story captivated my heart because Joanna is just like her father, Sherlock. I also loved the aspect of having Dr. Watson and his son part of the team as well. They make a great team and had me guessing from the very beginning how things would conclude. The characters were fantastic in my opinion and I can’t wait to read the first in the series now! The mystery was solid and I thought I could use my skills for this book after figuring out Ruth Ware’s latest novel from the beginning chapters but I have to admit that the ending surprised me and there was quite the twists that I won’t soon forget. I read this novel within a day and was scrolling through pages as fast as I possibly could. I definitely recommend this book to Sherlock fans and mystery lovers alike!

SynopsisThey call her Crazy Anna.

Anna Flint won’t shake your hand. She collects tin cans. She cleans her cubicle at work with Lysol several times a day. But Anna doesn’t care that they call her crazy. She’s absolutely satisfied with her life of perfect organization, cleanliness, and most of all, solitude.

Matt Harper likes Anna Flint. He likes that she’s the smartest person he knows and he likes her big blue eyes. He doesn’t even mind her can collection. In fact, he pretty much likes everything about Anna. As his body and his world are falling apart, she still manages to make him happy.

Matt is the only person Anna has ever wanted to be close to. But how can she go on a date with him if the thought of dinner at a restaurant fills her with terror? How can she ever kiss the man she loves if she can’t even touch him?

Maybe it’s time to stop being Crazy Anna. If only she could.

86521e6cd3ee08b61e2560ca520b382a

My Thoughts_1

I was CRAZY about this book! At first I was unsure how I felt about the characterization, especially with Matt. I’m going to be honest, I thought he was a PIG! I mean he rated girls by numbers but this was just at first sight and there was so much more depth to this story and his character than I could ever expect. The author delivers a twist with the characters that was completely unexpected but made this love story more unique and beautiful that warmed my heart and wrenched it at the same time. Anna’s character was so easy to relate to;. Everyone just disregarded her as “Crazy Anna”, but there was so much more to her story that will captivate you and keep the readers’ glued to the screen or pages or whatever have you, I have battled a Crazy in Love (Matt & Anna, #1)severe mental illness my whole life and I could completely relate to Anna’s emotions and her characterization. The author describes the symptoms and effects of her mental illness perfectly. I actually have been disappointed by a lot of romances that I have read lately but this one went above and beyond. The story gave me a whirlwind of emotions plus delivered a twist that made the story hold more depth than the average love story. I wish that the author went a little bit more into Anna’s past to explain what set her off but I know there is a sequel and I just can’t wait I had happy tears at the end of this story and was completely attached to both of the main characters. Matt and Anna are fantastic characters and their story shows how hard life can be but how we can find beauty in the dark places.

Book Review

I absolutely loved this book just like the first in the series!!!😍 I totally #fangirl over this series! Not only do I just love Charlene’s never-ending humorous behavior! I am totally jealous that a woman in her 70-80s can have that much fun sleuthing around and I can’t! Man, responsibilities!😤 This was a great mystery, had a good plot and I wasn’t expecting the ending! I love this series because there is no insta-love or anything like that just fun and sleuthing. I highly recommend this series!

Book Review

This was a fun cozy novel and was a sure Sunday afternoon delight! I love reading books that involve books in some way or fashion. I loved the characters and the plot.

Five years ago, I did something impulsive. I turned myself into a cliche when I decided to be spontaneous and hopped in my car and took off to Vegas. I had no idea that decision would come back to haunt me. Now, I am a super star, engaged to a rock star, and have everything I could ever want. Until my world implodes around me and I find myself running back to where it all began. There's Something about Vegas (Las Vegas Nights, #1)

Cole 

Five years ago, the woman of my dreams walked into my club. And as quickly as she entered, she fled. All I was left with were memories and a piece of paper. I searched everywhere for the girl who starred in all of my wildest fantasies, but it wasn’t until her life got turned upside down that she came barreling back into mine with more complications then I could have dreamed. I fell for her, hard. What she doesn’t know is I have a secret that could very well tear us apart.

A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.

Book Review: Acacia by T.A. Barua~ Digital Reads


I would like to thank Shalini @ Digital Reads Blog Tour and the author for this opportunity to be a part of this lovely blog tour!😍❤📚

Arcacia: The Witch, The Warlock and the Children of the sorceress Queen. Blurb 150 words :When a beautiful sorceress-queen, Selina, spurns Setanor, a powerful, jealous northern warlock, an invasion of Western Arcacia begins. To save her newborn triplets from death, they are cast down a magical river to the New World, a place called, ‘London, England.’ Thirteen years later in a cold, Victorian London attic… The future of Sophie, an impoverished orphan looks bleak but everything changes, to her astonishment after a young witch arrives through her bedroom window with an incredible message and a warning. So begins her life in a beautiful, enchanted ancient world…

How do Sophie and her four friends summon the tremendous courage to rescue her long lost family while restoring Arcacia from dark, ruling forces? Mystical beasts, sceptres, powerful witches and daemon-trolls are just some of their challenges. Meanwhile, the dreaded terrifying warlock, Setanor and his witch-consort Lilith have sent a secret enemy to plan their downfall…

Book Excerpt

Prologue

The prologue to, ‘Arcacia,’ outlines the events leading up to the Great thirteen year war in Arcacia, a magical realm of the Old World. To avert the threat of invasion from the northern territories, Selina’s father, a King of the Argenon family clan had promised his beautiful daughter, Selina’s hand in marriage to Setanor, a powerful warlock from the north. The aggressive sorcerer ruling family houses of the North had always openly threatened to invade rich, flourishing lands of western Arcacia. So far the Argenons and their people had managed to keep them at bay but this was getting harder.

Selina, a strong, beautiful well-educated Arcacian lady is adamant she’d rather stand up to Setanor than subject the people she loves to a life-time of tyranny. After her father suddenly passes away Selina breaks his oath; gives up her magic powers, and chooses to marry an Arcacian commander. Harris originated from a strange world called England in the New World, he is unlike other Arcacians; Harris is human. Selina forfeits her magical powers by marrying an outsider, as is dictated by law. They have three beautiful babies, triplets a boy and two girls. But Setanor who wanted to inherit Western Arcacia and who genuinely fell in love with Selina from afar, is furious, perceiving her derisory actions to be an act of scorn and disrespect.

He declares war on Arcacia, and one fateful night he appears with his guards to Selina’s home, captures Selina, and banishes Harris to the underworld. Before being imprisoned and spellbound in a tower, ‘Until she comes to her senses and agrees to accept Setanor,’ Selina pleads with Set’s commander, Garwain, also her paternal uncle to spare her babies. He complies, placing them in an enclosed basket which he casts down a magical river that forks to the New world to,’ London, England,’ the land of their father, not knowing if they will live or die.

The children survive but are separated. A mysterious woman who finds the babies floating along the river, takes one of them, a girl, to raise herself. A wolf suckles the boy who is discovered in the forest then raised by an elf-Queen and her people. Meanwhile the third child a girl, Sophie drifts on to England.

I really liked this story! The premise and storyline was great but felt the execution needed a little work. I also felt the characters were lacking a bit but I did enjoy the read overall and read it within a day. I feel with a little tweaking this story could definitely turn into a great 5 star read that many young people and adults will be drawn to for sure. I am definitely interested in seeing how the author’s previous works will turn out, the author had great ideas! I also had my 10 year old daughter read this along with me and she really enjoyed it and thought it had an unique storyline. We had fun reading together and this story was likable and I think it has great potential.😁 I give this novel 3.5 out 5 magical stars! I’m glad to receive this opportunity. Thanks Digital Reads Blog Tours!😀❤

Book Review

I am crazy about this series! What, What! I really enjoy books based in London even there’s some nasty murder to go with it. I also love that the sleuth was a single mom battling issues that us moms can relate to.                        giphyI also can see why reviewers are saying she’s the modern Miss Marple and have even compared her to one of my all time favorites, Stephanie Plum!!!💙 

 

There wasn’t loads of gore and violence in these novels, just great murder mysteries that are sure to captivate many readers with their witty and charming characters and portraying a story that has you antsy waiting for the next novel to arrive. I wish there was more mysteries like this. There was the perfect blend of a fun cozy feel and a murder mystery that keeps you turning pages late through the night! #WorthIt!😀  I loved the characterization in these novels and loved the steady pace that captured my attention from beginning to end! I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a good murder mystery with great characters are that great added bonus. I give the first two novels in The London Murder Mystery Series a definite 5+ out of 5 freakin’ fantabulous stars!

Hey guys! I am sorry about me posting this fresh again but the glitches with WordPress continue.😣 My post made me sound illiterate and thought that was a bad image for a book blogger. I have to admit that I am not the best at proofreading but when DO deletes one scheduled post and sends a draft version of one I wrote that stinks so back to talking to the “Happiness Engineers” .😕 I also apologize for not being online much lately since I have been trying to cope with the family crisis I blogged about last week. I finally had a great breakdown with lots of ugly crying but once I finally let it all out, I am feeling more like myself! I miss you all and I am hopefully going to get the chance to blog hop to a blog near you!💜
