OBLIVION Synopsis: Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black… I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it. And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are. But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game. Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger.It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

One of Us



When Two Truths and One Lie Turn Deadly . . .
A narrow escape from a bomb attack.
A radical insurgent organization on the rise.
A place and a people to call her own.
K has a choice to make, and her answer is yes.
Yes to spying.
Yes to making right wrongs of the past.
Yes to leading a double life.
But when the two worlds lead to one trapdoor,
will K be able to avoid falling through?


 
My Review:

This is a book that all can relate to.  Us versus them!  Doesn't matter if it is the popular kids versus you or the religious people versus you, or the world against you.  All of us have dealt with something like it and it works so well her.  Jeannie Waudby was able to depict that well in "One of Us".  I found this one to be very thought provoking honestly.

The Libby Garrett Intervention


The Libby Garrett Intervention (Science Squad)

by Kelly Oram 

Release Date: 10/24/15

Bluefields Publishing

 The Libby Garrett Intervention

Summary from Goodreads:

Libby Garrett is addicted to Owen Jackson's hot lovin'. But the sexy, popular college basketball player doesn't appreciate all of Libby's awesomeness. He refuses to be exclusive or even admit to people that they're dating. The relationship is ruining Libby and she's the only one who can't see it.

When Libby's behavior spirals completely out of control, her best friend Avery Shaw and the rest of the Science Squad stage an intervention hoping to cure Libby of her harmful Owen addiction. They put her through her very own Twelve Step program—Owen's Anonymous—and recruit the help of a sexy, broody, hard as nails coffee man to be her official sponsor...

Adam Koepp has watched Libby Garrett for years. How could he not notice the sassy girl with the purple skateboard and helmet plastered with cat stickers? But in all the years he's crushed on her, Libby has failed to take notice of him. Why would she when he was just a nobody high school drop out who served her apple cider several times a week? Especially when she was hooking up with a guy like Owen Jackson—a guy with a college scholarship and more abs than Kyle Hamilton.

Adam finally gets the chance to meet Libby when his co-worker Avery Shaw recruits him to take Libby on the journey of a lifetime. With his ability to play Bad Cop and his experience with the Twelve Step program he's the perfect candidate to be Libby's sponsor. But will he be able to keep his personal feelings out of the matter and really help her the way she needs? And will Libby hate him when he forces her to take an honest look at herself?

This follow-up companion novel to The Avery Shaw Experiment can be read as a stand alone. (But where's the fun in that?) ;)

 MY REVIEW:
 
 
 
 
I enjoyed this book more than I anticipated.  I honestly was not thrilled with the character of Libby at all at first.  Once I understood her more, then I began to like her.  I loved Adam though from the get go.  I felt this was the perfect companion to The Avery Experiment.  All in all I gave this a solid 4 star rating.

Review: No Regrets

No Regrets No Regrets by Kate L. Mary
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I struggled with a rating for this one. Honestly, I did. The characters at times were overly complex and their struggles seemed blown up. But then I realized that many of us feel so complicated and our struggles are to us. But look at someone else's and it seems easy to figure out. I loved Liam immediately - out of reach yet the only one who one really wants. Cami was out of control at times yet just a teen struggling with balancing her feelings.
I gave this a 5 star rating as it made me root for the underdogs and really contemplate the whole story. I really thought about this long after I finished it.
I did receive this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Six years earlier, Trina Grissom disappeared, on the run for her life. Now living under an assumed identity—as Samantha Marsh—she still struggles with the dark secret she harbors and the fear she might one day be found. When she moves to the coastal town of Rarity Cove, South Carolina, to open a cafĂ©, a handsome widower begins to chip away at the walls she’s built to protect herself.

Mark St. Clair lost his wife two years ago in a tragic accident. Head of the grand St. Clair resort, he distracts himself from his lingering grief by running the family business and caring for his troubled young daughter...until a beautiful restaurateur sets up shop in town. Before meeting Samantha, Mark was convinced he could never be drawn to another woman. But as his attraction to Samantha grows, the mystery surrounding her deepens.

As the two begin a hesitant courtship, double perils emerge. Someone from Samantha’s lurid past comes calling, threatening to expose her. And a powerful hurricane is forming in the Atlantic with the small beach town in its path. Trapped in the storm by the brutal man who wants vengeance on Samantha, she and Mark must fight for their lives.
