Review – Helix – Viola Grace

AUT_GraceViola_Helix
Harmony enjoyed her life as a courier for the Alliance, but it all came to a halt when she was sucked into a storm of light and gas that her computer could not see. Agony is her final thought, but when she wakes again, she finds that her body has been recreated because the original…the less said the better.

Nero has been working as a restorer for three hundred years on a world where the only new members of the population fall from the sky. He sees spirit in Harmony, and when she declares that she only wants him for his body, he is smitten.

They face the stars that brought them together and work in their different ways to bring their community into harmony with a world as trapped as they are.

Cara’s Review
I have made no secret in the past of being a die-hard hardcore Viola Grace fan. I really enjoy all her books, but this one blew. me. away. If this is the result of a vacation, I say more should be planned for Ms. Grace! Ms. Grace pours out novellas, at a remarkable rate, yet each one is unique and different. This one is definitely unique, with an amazing premise.

The Rift is a bit of a confusing place: it might take a little while for the reader to understand what is going on in this separate secret space in reality: think of it as a futuristic Bermuda Triangle. With clones. While you read this book; as I assure you, you must; stop and think for a moment about the premise. How would you react to the reality Harmony and the rest of the population faces? I honestly don’t think I’ve ever come across such a story before, and I am a very well read individual.

Anyway, enough. I thoroughly enjoyed both the premise of this book, as well as the actual story. It is a unique take on the possibilities of the Universe, with a HAE provided. Nero is quite the hero (no comment on the rhyming) with a rich history and backstory. There are some great unexpected twists (who is that singing? A secret dragon? Nero courting her?). I would highly recommend this book to any readers who enjoy the Sci-fi/Fantasy/HAE genre. If you are looking for something new and different, this is a great taste of what Ms. Grace is capable of! I don’t know how else to put it, except: Read this book!

Review- Love Me Once, Love Me Twice- Sandy Lee Sullivan

51FFRGDWn2L._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-69,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_
Home. They say home is where the heart is, but can coming back to Red Rock, Montana really be home? Natalie Bennington is about to find out.

Finding herself in a blizzard and stuck in a ditch, the last person she expects to rescue her is gorgeous ex-high school jock, Cade Weston. His light brown hair and baby blue eyes had many a teenage girl all a twitter including her, but being the shy band girl didn’t garner attention from his type. When Cade’s best friend Kale, and ex-football jock shows up, the stakes have just shot through the roof. Both men want her and she can’t undersand why.

Cowboy and all around good guy, Cade Weston is a born and raised Montana boy. Yes ma’am, no sir, hold the lady’s chair, open her door—those things were ingrained in his upbringing, but every man likes a pretty woman. Natalie Bennington has grown up into one gorgeous female and he can’t get her out of his mind.

Kale Dunn can’t get over the changes in the shy band girl he remembers from high-school. Natalie sure turned into one hot woman. All legs, gorgeous body and breasts big enough to fill a man’s hands. Would she be willing to share? He and Cade liked
to partake in threesome’s on occasion, but from what he remembered of Natalie, he didn’t think she’d be the type. Was he wrong?

Wined, dined and loved by two men. Can she make the decision to love only one or will their possessiveness drive her back to Oregon?

Tamara’s Review
What’s better than a hot cowboy? How about two? Natalie Bennington returns to Red Rock for family reasons. Her grandfather has passed away and her parents want her to convince her feisty grandma to leave her home and move to Oregon. Not going to happen!
Love Me Once, Love Me Twice hooked me from page one, when Nat talks to herself as she drives down the road. Immediate connection for me. I loved her right then and there. Then enters sexy cowboy number one, Cade. He rescues her from a ditch and heats up the winter night (and her girly parts.)Putting the moves on her right away.

Natalie can’t believe her luck, the high school hero she crushed on noticed her, squee! Kale, Cade’s longtime BFF and partner in crime(and passion) joins in the fun, and the two men seem to fighting over her. Can dreams really come true?

I really connected with the characters in Love Me Once, Love Me Twice. I adored Nat’s grandma, You never knew what was going to come out of her mouth next, and whatever it was, it always made me laugh! Natalie was a carbon copy of her grandma, and I loved her straight talking, take no BS attitude. Cade and Kale were hilarious in their attempts to prove to each other and everyone else that they were okay with Natalie dating them both, while they struggled with new emotions of possessiveness and jealousy. They were also incredibly sweet!

If you love cowboys, like I do, and are looking for a hot and hilarious read, Love Me Once, Love Me Twice is the book for you! An SSLY Recommended Read!

New Release ~ Omorphi ~ Cody Kennedy

Omorphi-FB-Timeline-PAGES

Omorphi-200x300Omorphi
by C. Kennedy from Harmony Ink Press September 19, 2013

Body of Post: If you requested additional content such as an article, interview, or character interview, you will receive this content shortly before your post date.

High school senior Michael Sattler leads a charmed life. He’s a star athlete, has great friends, and parents who love him just the way he is. What’s missing from his life is a boyfriend. That’s a problem because he’s out only to his parents and best friend. When Michael accidentally bumps into Christy Castle at school, his life changes in ways he never imagined. Christy is Michael’s dream guy: smart, pretty, and sexy. But nothing could have prepared Michael for what being Christy’s boyfriend would entail.

Christy needs to heal after years of abuse and knows he needs help to do it. After the death of his notorious father, he leaves his native Greece and settles in upstate New York. Alone, afraid, and left without a voice, Christy hides the myriad scars of his abuse. He desperately wants to be loved and when he meets Michael, he dares to hope that day has arrived. When one of Michael’s team-mates becomes an enemy and an abuser from Christy’s past seeks to return him to a life of slavery, only Michael and Christy’s combined strength and unwavering determination can save them from the violence that threatens to destroy their future together.

About Cody:

Raised on the mean streets and back lots of Hollywood by a Yoda-look-alike grandfather, Cody Kennedy doesn’t conform, doesn’t fit in, is epic awkward and lives to perfect a deep-seated oppositional defiance disorder. In a constant state of fascination with the trivial, Cody contemplates such weighty questions as: If time and space are curved, then where do all the straight people come from? When not writing, Cody can be found taming waves on western shores, pondering the nutritional value of sunsets, appreciating the much maligned dandelion, unhooking guide ropes from stanchions, and marveling at all things ordinary.
