Made the Grade: Shifters Series, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 618 | Release Date: February 2010 | Publisher: MIRA

"Stray" [Shifters Series, Book 1] by Rachel Vincent

My Book Summary : Have you ever seen a "black panther" before? Well, in this world there is no such thing as a "black panther", actually if you've seen one it is really a werecat (which is a type of shifter). Faythe is a werecat. Technically in her society, she's called a tabbycat, as she is a female werecat. Since there are so few tabbycat's in each werecat Pride across the US (about one, daughter, per Alpha), the tabbies usually choose who will be her husband and the next Alpha of her Pride. But five yrs ago Faythe ran away her boyfriend/fiancé (Marc) and her family so she wouldn't turn into a mother and house wife because she wanted more out of her life. Of course, they found her, and after they realized she wasn't going to change her mind, her dad (the Alpha) agreed to let her go to college. Faythe did so, moving on with her life as much as possible, hoping to never go back to her parents home, and dating other guys (all humans).

But now, five yrs later, her family has come to bring her back home whether she likes it or not because of some one is stealing up neighboring Pride's tabbies (one being her friend and the other her younger cousin). Once home she feels there's no need for her to be there and tries to talk her father into letting her leave, which gets her into having 24-hour guard service to make sure she doesn't plan on running for it. Also, with Marc being her father's second-in-command, he is around her all the time, making her not sure if she should still keep her distance or not from him. Especially when old feelings start to emerge again.

But things start getting worse fast, especially when they find one of the missing tabbies murdered .... her family helps the other Pride members search for the other tabby before it's too late. With everyone else dealing with the mess of the missing girls, Faythe manages to break away from everyone to think about everything that has happened in a short period of time for her, and falls right into a trap.

Will she manage to come out better then the other tabbies? Will the Pride members find Faythe and the other girl before it's too late, and deal justice to the ones responsible?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Faythe is a great strong character: fierce, determined, a protector to those she loves, though a bitch at times, with a small sweet side that is sometimes hard to find around her loud mouth. Her relationship with Marc is on rocky ground but it's hard not to root for them. Even though she happens to get into a bit of a love triangle (or should I say a square) with a friend she never considered before, and with a human boyfriend back at college. It definitely make me curious as to what book 2, "Rogue", might hold. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
I let my face slip into the water, as much to escape Marc's tenderhearted babble as to rinse my hair, and I only came up when I had to either surface for a breath or drown.
"...can ignore me for as long as you want. For the rest of the day, or for the rest of the month. For five more years if that's what you need. But when you finally realize I'm right, I'll still be here waiting."
He stopped talking, but he wasn't gone. ~ within Chapter 15

... come feel this magic i've been feeling since i met you ...

I'm not sure if this happens to every girl ... but the lucky ones (like me) get to grow up with guys who aren't related to her and yet are like family. That's how it is for Belly in "The Summer I Turned Pretty" by Jenny Han.

This 15 yr old lives her life for the summers she spends at a beach house with her mom, brother, and her mothers best friend with her sons. Growing up she has always been the youngest in the pack and the only girl. Over the years she has tried to be included and the summer that she turns sweet 16 things finally change, especially when everyone realizes that she has grown up and isn't a little girl anymore.

When you always grown up thinking you were the ugly duckling ... and now your not ... how can you get everyone else to see it too?

Belly is a great character ... brave in her own way ... loving to those around her ... and never gives up.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars. To find out more about this book or other books by Jenny Han check out her website.

Feasted On: Falling For Gracie by Susan Mallery

Format: Paperback | Pages: 347 | Release Date: reissue - January 2009 | Publisher: HQN Books

"Falling For Gracie" [Los Lobos Series, Book 2] by Susan Mallery

My Book Summary : When we're young, crushes usually come and go, but when Gracie was fourteen she tried to hold onto her crush by doing anything possible. She was upset that Riley never liked her or even was nice to her back (even though he was four years older then her), that she made his life a living hell, by sticking a skunk into his car to slipping diarrhea pills into his soup before the school dance.

Now fourteen years later she's finally back to the hometown where it all took place. Even though she's been over her crush for some time now (or so she thinks), her past antics have made her a legend and not one that she is proud of. Therefore, she's planning to do everything in her power to stay as far from Riley as possible. But it's hard to accomplish when people around her keep putting her into situations where they run into each other....

After talking a few times they, both realize that they have more in common then, either could have believed, and they become friends. However, with Riley running for Mayor, they find that some people in town will do anything to see both of their reputations ruined...

Will they make it through? And quite possibly become closer then either ever believed possible....

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars. Very cute, quite funny, and I loved Riley and Gracie! I breezed through this book not wanting to put it down until the end! I will admit that the ending was kind of corny but that still didn't ruin the book for me. =0)

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Tempting | Accidentally Yours

Book Teaser :
"We can't do this, Gracie. I have rules and one of them says the women in question is easily forgotten. We both know you're not that."
She pressed her hands against his chest. "Are you referring to my stalker past? Haven't we talked about you letting that go?" ~ within Chapter 6

It's just the little things you do ... that makes me wanna get with you

Is it possible for you to move back into your old life after you've grown up and done so much? That is what Izzie and Nick try to figure out in "Overexposed" by Leslie Kelly. Izzie grew up being "in love" with her older sister's brother-in-law, who was only 4 years older then her .... but when she was 14 and chubby .... and Nick was 18 and sexy ... she couldn't help but have a crush ... just too bad it wasn't a mutual feeling. Almost a decade passes ... now their older, wiser, but are at points in their lives where they're looking for the next thing to do .... and both just happen to move back to their hometown. Much to each families delight but not theirs. Since Izzie got home she has been living two lives .... one where she helps out at her families bakery by day ... another where she plays a mysterious stripper by night. When they first see each other again at Nick's families pizzeria .... Nick notices Izzie right away and feels like he has to get to know her ... the only problem is he doesn't remember who she is, until after she gets mad at him and walks out the door. Later Izzie finds out that Nick is going to start being a bouncer at her club and tries to keep her secret from him so it won't get out to anyone else. ...... Does Izzie ever get over her crush? Will Nick find out who the mysterious stripper is? And the big question ..... if they meet on common ground will they stay together or will Izzie run away?

I liked the story. Izzie was a great character. 3 out of 5 stars. The only thing I didn't like was that behind the Izzie/Nick story .... there was a story of Izzie's cousin Bridget with her co-worker ... but they really didn't finish it well and just left it hanging. =0/ Which was disappointing.

To find out more about this book or other books by Leslie, then check out her website.

I’ve been waiting all my life, And now I found ya

Looking for a great romance story that isn't 500 pages long? Well ... "The Wallflower" (part of the Halle Pumas series) by Dana Marie Bell would be one for you to look into. It's a cute story, but a quick read (over 200 pages but under 300 pages) that I couldn't out down! It's about Max & Emma who have known each other since they were teens but after moving in different directions (by going to college and just growing up), they find themselves living in their hometown again. Emma has always been in love with Max growing up, but thinks that since he has never dated someone like her she doesn't stand a chance with him. However, Max is instantly drawn to Emma as soon as he hears her speak ... and now the two can't get enough of each other. The only problem is Max's ex just can't take NO for an answer .. know matter what.

3 out of 5 stars, this story I just couldn't put down!

Right now (at the time of this post) you can read it FREE on your Kindle or iPod through Amazon.com, click here to download it!

To find out more about this book and/or series, or any other of Dana's books then check out her website!

Book Report - the Jessica Darling Series

Okay ... I just finished read the Jessica Darling series, written by Megan McCafferty, which includes 5 books (Sloppy Firsts, Second Helpings, Charmed Thirds, Fourth Comings, & Perfect Fifths). I started reading the first book sometime last week and then finished reading the last book this morning (with a few days waiting period for the final books to arrive somewhere in between). And all I can say it I LOVED IT/THEM!!!!!!!

Sloppy Firsts - starts out when Jessica is sixteen and has never really had a boyfriend. She's smart and "snarky" ... what's not to love. *hahaa* And in this book she starts seeing Marcus Flutie, who is the all around bad boy! Then it goes from the end of her sophomore year into summer time then into her junior year of high school ... and Marcus is back more so then ever.

Throughout the whole series it shows you Jessica's tale of her romance with Marcus ... through the good times and bad. I also love it because these characters are written as being the same age as me, so I can definitely relate to the pop culture references and what she goes through. Not that my life is exactly like hers but I definitely understand how she feels in the situations she gets thrown in.

Then in Perfect Fifths - you finally get to hear both sides of the romance as the tale goes back and forth between the characters. ♥ I really can't say anymore without giving it all away so I'll just say again ... I LOVED IT!!!!

To find out more info on this series go to Megan McCafferty's website. =0)

Here's an awesome video overview about the series ... check it out:

Firefighter vs Doctor

Out of all of her novels, "Just One of the Guys" by Kristan Higgins is by far one of her best!! This great romantic comedy, just made it so I couldn't put it down. Especially with lines like, "I'm being killed by my appetizer.", you just can't go wrong. I think most women at one time or another feel like 'just one of the guys', which is a good thing but not when your in love with one of those guy friends.

Which is what happens to Chastity. After moving back to her hometown, the books opens with her getting dumped and not in the most pleasant way either (even though it's never really pleasant). Getting back into the swing of things again, hanging out with her 4 older brothers with their co-worker buddies and such has it's benefits. However, she really would like to find her special someone. In doing so she can't help but still have her crush on one of her best guy friends, named Trevor, whom she has known since she was 10 yrs old and has practically been raised as another brother around her. Then there's a new handsome doctor in town that has caught her eye. And what would she do just to not be seen as just one of the guys ....

This book is one of my faves for Kristan Higgins, my other fave of hers is "Too Good To Be True." To find out more about this book or others of hers, then check out her website.
