Blog Tour Review: Deadly Lies by Cynthia Eden

She wants to hide the pastFBI Special Agent Samantha Kennedy is haunted by memories of the serial killer who abducted her. To keep the darkness at bay, she pretends to be a different, more confident woman. This Samantha doesn't fear every unknown face. So she throws caution to the wind and shares a night of unbridled passion with a handsome stranger.

He needs to uncover the truth
One night isn't enough for successful entrepreneur Max Ridgeway. He wants more of the sexy, smart, mysterious woman who slipped away before dawn. When they meet again, their attraction is undeniable-until his stepbrother goes missing, and Max realizes that Samantha isn't who she seems. But they must trust each other to trap a ring of bloodthirsty kidnappers before the nightmares that terrorize Sam become irrevocably real.

As a merciless criminal spins a web of . . .
DEADLY LIES
 
After reading Deadly Lies, I have decided that Cynthia Eden has moved up to one of my all-time favorite authors.  I fell in love with this book and couldn't go to sleep after reading it.  I highly recommend Cynthia Eden to my fellow readaholics!

Blog Tour Review: Deadly Heat by Cynthia Eden



She wants revenge . . . Six months after her lover died in an arsonist's blaze, firefighter Lora Spade calls in the FBI's elite Serial Services Division to track the elusive killer. When Special Agent Kenton Lake is lured into a violent inferno, Lora pulls him to safety and is stunned - not by the fire, but by her own searing attraction to Kent. For the first time in months, she longs for something other than vengeance.

He wants her . . .
Kenton's interest in Lora should be purely professional. But one fleeting kiss and he can't get her out of his mind. Her combination of strength and vulnerability makes him want to protect her, and that means solving this case - and fast. For even the passion igniting between them can't hide a terrifying truth: Lora is the next target in a murderer's sadistic, fiery game.

A vicious killer wants only . . .
DEADLY HEAT


Cynthia Eden delivers another stellar romance keeps the readers attention even long after finishing the book.  Deadly Heat is powerfully charged and super sexy, which make for a hot combination.  Kenton and Lora are the new "it" couple if you ask me and I wouldn't be surprised if this book were turned into a movie.

Blog Tour Review: Notorious Pleasures by Elizabeth Hoyt


Their lives were perfect . . .
Lady Hero Batten,the beautiful sister of the Duke of Wakefield, has everything a woman could want, including the perfect fiancé. True, the Marquis of Mandeville is a trifle dull and has no sense of humor, but that doesn't bother Hero. Until she meets his notorious brother . . .

Until they met each other.
Griffin Remmington, Lord Reading, is far from perfect - and he likes it that way. How he spends his days is a mystery, but all of London knows he engages in the worst sorts of drunken revelry at night. Hero takes an instant dislike to him, and Griffin thinks that Hero, with her charities and faultless manners, is much too impeccable for society,let alone his brother. Yet their near-constant battle of wits soon sparks desire - desire that causes their carefully constructed worlds to come tumbling down. As Hero's wedding nears, and Griffin's enemies lay plans to end their dreams forever, can two imperfect people find perfect true love?


I'm finding myself enjoying historical romances more now than ever.  The reason for this is because of authors like Elizabeth who transport me to another time and keep me entertained for hours.  Notorious Pleasures is sexy story with a great plot.  It's every romance lovers dream.

Review: Legion: The Final Exorcism


Michael San Chica is an ex-priest. He is also an investigator documenting true events of demonic possession. When Michael comes to the rescue of the newly possessed Tatiana McMurter, daughter of a Baptist minister, he discovers that he has encountered this demon before, a demon he vowed to track down and send back to hell. Because this time it's not business, it's personal. 

I'm a horror-movie fanatic and one thing that really gets to me are movies based on true events.  I started watching Legion: The Final Exorcism and I had to stop it about twenty minutes in.  I just couldn't get into it.  I thought that maybe it was just my mood, so the next day, I tried again but I still couldn't finish it.  There is a bit of a creepy vibe to the movie but I think they over-did it.  I'm not a fan of this movie, but that's just my opinion.

Student Loans

Graduating high school was a fun experience but it also led to a bit of stress.  Finding a school and taking out student loans can give you a massive headache.  I can still remember how I felt when I was filling out college applications and thinking about all the possibilities.

There are several options for paying for college.  The most popular of course is student loans because many of us don't or didn't have the money to pay for continuing our education upfront.  I did receive some grants but it was not enough.  Luckily, I was able to take out a loan that covered the rest of my college costs.

Review: Tick Tock by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge



NYC's #1 detective, Michael Bennett, has a huge problem--the Son of Sam, the Werewolf of Wisteria and the Mad Bomber are all back. The city has never been more terrified!

Tick--a killer's countdown beginsA rash of horrifying crimes tears through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorizing everyone living there. Immediately, it becomes clear that they are not the work of an amateur, but of a calculating, efficient, and deadly mastermind.

Tick--Michael Bennett is on the chase

The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside retreat with his ten adopted children, his grandfather, and their beloved nanny, Mary Catherine. Not only does it tear apart their vacation, it leaves the entire family open to attack.

Tock--your time is up

Bennett enlists the help of a former colleague, FBI Agent Emily Parker. As his affection for Emily grows into something stronger, his relationship with Mary Catherine takes an unexpected turn. All too soon, another appalling crime leads Bennett to a shocking discovery that exposes the killer's pattern and the earth-shattering enormity of his plan. From the creator of the #1 New York detective series comes the most volatile and most explosive Michael Bennett novel ever.


James Patterson is one of my favorite authors because he never lets me down.  Tick Tock blew me away!  I read it in one day because I could not put it down.  Michael Bennett is the perfect hero and this book had one of the best plots ever.  If you're a James Patterson fan or if you have never read any of his books, you need to!  Five stars!   

Michael Bennett Series

Review: DJ Hero 2 Turntable Bundle



BRING THE PARTY HOME WITH TWO TURNTABLES AND A MICROPHONE
The follow up to the award-winning #1 new videogame IP of 2009, DJ Hero® 2 will transform living rooms into nightclubs all over again with an entirely new music-gaming experience. Friends & families can become mix masters and singing sensations to experience hit music like they've never heard it before. With a host of new DJ and vocal multiplayer modes, including innovative DJ Battles, and 80+ mixes featuring the biggest dance, pop and hip-hop hits, DJ Hero 2 delivers the new standard in music gaming.


My husband has been addicted to Guitar Hero since before we got together.  When he found out that there was going to be a DJ Hero, he wanted to try it right away.  We weren't able to get it when it first came out but I did receive the DJ Hero 2 Turntable Bundle for PS3 to review recently.  I believe I was called "the best wife in the world" when he came home from work and I told him to look inside of a brown box where DJ Hero was "hiding".  He started playing it and said that it was fun but it wasn't really his kind of music.  I, on the other hand, was sitting on the couch moving to the beat. The day after we got it, he called me from work and asked what I was doing and my response was "what do you think?" I am addicted!  If you like dance music and video games, you have to play DJ Hero 2.
