I suffer from fibromyalgia. Occasionally, it gets really bad. Sometimes, I barely feel it. Most days, it’s bearable. I wanted to read “It Feels Good to Feel Good” because I was hoping to find some helpful tips there, because often I’ve found that in changing my diet, the pain tends to go away, or at least diminish somewhat. But then I eat something “bad” again (not knowing it will be “bad” for me) and the pain is back. “It Feels Good to Feel Good” delivered on its promise. Stress-busting ideas that actually work (I already tried a few), valid lessons about food and how to identify your sensitivities. Just by adopting a few of the strategies mentioned in the book, I’ve already managed to diminish my pain levels since my latest flare up of fibromyalgia, and I’m thankful for that.

If you suffer from chronic pain and you believe, like me, that there’s a way to get rid of it or at least diminish it that doesn’t involve pills, read this book.

Title: Girl Within Girl Book 2: Healing

Author: S.P. Aruna

Genre: Erotic Thriller

Trapped in a mountain cabin with three, possible four, women….every guy’s dream, right? Or could it turn out to be a nightmare?

Dr. Sean Paisley needs to find out how to bring these women together – his survival depends on it. To make matters worse, he’s in love with all of them….made passionate love to all of them. Throw in a nasty grizzly bear and the dark forces of the government and the situation becomes even more dire.

In the end, he was stuck with Belinda, a hysterical, suicidal, homicidal maniac of a person, confined together in the wilderness of the onset of winter. Now both their lives are at stake.

 

Review: This was an interesting book, not what I expected but it was a fun read all the same. Dr. Sean Paisley is stuck in a mountain cabin with several women… And although that might sound like any guy’s dream, it isn’t, because he’s in love with all of them, has even made love to all of them, and they all like him too – not exactly an ideal situation.

Once I started reading I had trouble stopping, and I really enjoyed the book.

Elise promised herself she’d never start something with Luke, since he’s a notorious player. But when they share a night of passion, she has trouble staying away from him. And Luke knows he has to have her again… They enter a friends with benefits relationship, but soon enough, Elise feels herself falling in love…

This was an amazing book! I loved the chemistry between Elise and Luke, their playful banter, and how much they were alike and how much they differed. The romance part was excellent, hot and dirty, and the characters were flawed but relatable.

Book Review Redfern

Title: Redfern

Author: Gary Tinnams

Genre: Science Fiction

“Humans don’t project past their own frequency. It’s why you’re so isolated as a species. The beings of other frequencies can only witness what you build and feel what you destroy.”

Earth – Tomorrow – The Singularity:-

The machines have taken over and mankind is cast out.

Millennia later, the inhospitable planet of Redfern is in the process of being made habitable for the proposed rebirth of the entire human race. All is proceeding as planned until Enforcer, Ted Holloway, witnesses the unexpected appearance of a long dead and former friend – A man who can become invisible and immaterial, a man that can penetrate any and all security.

A man whose very existence should be impossible.

As Ted and his superior, Lisa Carmichael, investigate further, they face dangers and creatures that challenge their very concept of reality and also encounter the colony’s caretaker Machine Mind and the human Security Commissioner, both of whom have opposing and intricate agendas of their own.

For the true nature of Redfern is stranger and more deadly than anything Holloway or Carmichael can possibly imagine.

And it could change or destroy humanity forever…

Review: What impressed me the most  about Redfern was the writing style. It was fluent and still managed to tell the reader enough details to picture every scene. The characters felt like real people, epsecially Ted and Lisa. The story is very creative, and the plot keeps surprising the reader.

Title: No Quarter: Wenches – Volume 1

Author: MJL Evans

Genre: Historical Romance

Volume 1 of 6 begins in 1689 Port Royal, Jamaica, where Atia Crisp is imprisoned, awaiting trial, while refugees from Strangewayes’s plantation seek their new home. Guided by Capitaine la Roche, they face pursuit by the pirate hunter Big Dick and the perilous terrain of Bocas del Toro. Their future home of Sérénité hangs in the balance, complicated by the outbreak of war with France.

Series Description:

The adventures from No Quarter: Dominium continue with wenches! In 1689, Atia Crisp finds herself imprisoned in the wickedest city on earth, Port Royal, Jamaica, while the refugees from Strangewayes’s plantation in the Blue Mountains are on the run and seeking a new home, deep in the Caribbean. Captain Jean-Paul la Roche must get them to safety and find a way to liberate the woman he loves while waging a war against the English with the pirate Laurens de Graaf.

While besieged people suffer and starve, a group of women form a secret and illegal society deep from within the bowels of the city called: WENCH. A network that deals with smugglers, merchants, cutthroats and thieves. Dragged into the struggle for supremacy of the Caribbean, the women are divided and find themselves engulfed in bloodshed. The pirates of Port Royal and former enemies may be their only hope of escape.

Hell hath no fury like a cross wench!

A romance novel set in 1689 in Port Royal, an era I’m not familiar with but that I enjoyed learning more about. Atia Crisp is an interesting character to read about, and the historical setting was described in such detail I could imagine myself there. Fans of historical romance will enjoy this book.

Book Review Eidolons

eidolons-coverTitle: Eidolons

Author: Harrison Fountain

Genre: Literary Fantasy

When TK dies in a car accident, the Grim Reaper gives him a second chance at life, but he says it’s more fun being a ghost. As he haunts his small Iowa town, his sleek shell of sarcasm cracks to a terrified lonely inner self. Find out why he’d rather be dead.

I don’t want to spoil anything (the blurb is short, so basically just about anything outside of that is a spoiler) but some very unexpected things happen to TK once he’s dead, and I never really quite knew what direction the book was going to take, which I loved.

The writing was the strongest part of the book for me. As an editor, I’m always on the lookout for errors or clumsy sentences, but the writing here was great.

If you think you’re in for a standard, stereotypical “person dies, becomes a ghost” story then you’ll be surprised at what Eidolons has to offer.
