The Synopsis:

Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society’s expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other’s backs.

Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problem leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood—the group of men he calls family—an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.

Mechanic Gabrielle Parker prefers the complexities of an engine over men. Her life wasn’t always quiet and well-ordered, but now that it is, she finds peace in the solitude. When a robbery in her neighborhood forces her out of her safe bubble, she never fathoms that a dangerous, cocky trauma doctor will fix more than her injuries.

Zeke doesn’t play by the rules that Gabrielle follows but knows that he’s exactly what she needs in her life. He’ll show her the fierce and uncompromising protection that comes from belonging to a man like him.

When tension outside the Brotherhood threatens Gabrielle, Zeke will do anything to keep her safe, and damn the consequences. No one will hurt his woman, even if it means putting the very men who saved his life at risk.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading Wild & Sweet (Haven Brotherhood Series book #2)’:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Haven Brotherhood Series.***

Wild & Sweet is the 2nd installment in the exciting Haven Brotherhood Series by the fantastic author Rhenna Morgan. This dangerously provocative novel offers a perfect blend of romance, alluring dialogue, and suspenseful drama to keep you entertained from beginning to the end. It nestles itself comfortably in the Contemporary Romance genre. Wild & Sweet is written from the P.O.V.’s (point of views) of the 2 main characters of this novel, Gabrielle “Gabe” and Zeke.

Gabrielle “Gabe” Parker was raised by her father and brother, Danny. Where most young women in there 20’s are busy dating and going out with friends, Gabe spends most of her time working on cars at the garage she works at. Ever since she was younger, she’s had to deal with abandonment issues because of her mother and anxiety that she had from her experiences at school growing up. The last things on her mind are dating or changing the comforts of the sheltered life she’d been living. So when her brother’s friend comes around, her thoughts and feelings surprise her. On top of that, someone is stirring trouble in her quite neighborhood, who can help to put an end to it?

Zeke Dugan is always on the go. He rarely allows himself a chance to sit still by choice. Being a trauma doctor, it fits right into his lifestyle. Being a brother in The Haven Brotherhood, he’s pretty satisfied with life with that family and has never felt like he needed anything more. That was true up until he met Danny’s sister Gabrielle. There’s just something about her innocence, the mystery in her eyes, and her natural beauty. Even with her resistance of the idea, he decides that he won’t give up on trying to show her that he’s someone that she can trust.

Wild & Sweet is an entertaining ride with a fantastic blend of romance, emotional moments, and suspense that comes with the Haven brotherhood. The men of the Haven Brotherhood are irresistible, protective of those they care about, and irresistibly-enticing! I recommend this novel and series! You won’t be disappointed. Check this one out soon! ❤

The Synopsis:

A self-made man with his fingers in a variety of successful businesses, Jace Kennedy lives for the challenge and he always gets what he wants. From the start, he sees Vivienne Moore’s hidden wild side and knows she’s his perfect match, if only he can break it free. He will have her. One way or another.

Vivienne’s determined to ditch the rough lifestyle she grew up in, even if that means hiding her true self behind a bland socialite veneer. Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she’s built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv’s plans are derailed when she finds herself crashing into the club’s clearly badass and dangerously sexy owner.

Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society’s walk and talk society’s talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He’s proud of who he is and where he came from, and he’ll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in the arms of a dangerous man.

This book is approximately 105,000 words

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading Rough & Tumble (Haven Brotherhood Series book #1)’:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Haven Brotherhood Series.***

Rough & Tumble is the a part of the brand new series called Haven Brotherhood Series by author Rhenna Morgan. It has dangerously-exciting and entertaining factors that extend throughout the entire story-line. There is a great blend of romance, suspense, and sexiness that will please readers who can enjoy and appreciate these aspects in a good story. Rough & Tumble is written in the P.O.V’s (Point of views) of the main characters Vivienne and Jace.

Vivienne “Viv” Moore is trying to build her business while constantly having to rescue her wild younger sister Callie from her bad choices. Their childhood wasn’t perfect but Vivienne tries hard to make sure that she doesn’t let that shape her life now. On one of the nights where she has to rescue Callie, she comes across a very dark and dangerously-attractive man named Jace. Just the eye contact alone makes her feel things she never has before.

Jace Kennedy is a part of a group called The Brotherhood. Aside from that, he’s very rich and runs multiple successful businesses with his Brotherhood family. He finds himself living on the edge at times because of the occasional dangerous people he comes in contact with. There is just something about Vivienne that seems to draw him toward her. Jace wants to know more about her but as he gets closer to her, they find that threats to him run the risk of touching her life, too.

Is someone on a mission to destroy everything Jace has worked hard to build? Will Vivienne find her own success in her life or will she be drug down by disastrous choices that her sister Callie puts herself in? Will Vivienne learn about what the Brotherhood is? Rough & Tumble is an enthralling and incredible novel with stunning characters like Vivienne and Jace, as well as characters that are sure to make bigger appearances in this fresh new series. I recommend this for readers who can appreciate an entertaining read, with a great sexy-romantic story-line, and for those who enjoy some suspense intertwined. Check this one out and add to your reading list for sure! 😉

The Synopsis for ‘DEAR LIFE’ :

Four lives. Four stories. Four sets of letters. Four brave souls in need of guidance while facing life’s greatest challenges.

The anonymously published Dear Life program is designed to help them step outside of their comfort zones, face their obstacles, and relinquish their demons…and prove their existence.

With their lives teetering between wanting more and losing it all, all four souls dive into the program as a New Year’s resolution, sending them on a crazy, life-altering journey.

Dear Life,

Please be kind.

Yours truly, Hollyn, Jace, Daisy, and Carter.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC Review’ for DEAR LIFE by author Meghan Quinn:

The latest novel titled “Dear Life” by author Meghan Quinn, will take you on such an emotional journey and in a few instances is a tear-jerkier. This novel falls under the genres of New Adult and Contemporary Romance. Dear Life is written from the four main characters’ P.O.V.’s (Point of views) which are Hollyn, Daisy, Carter, and Jace.

All four of these characters must finally face the trials and tribulations that could easily break them and will undoubtedly change the course of their lives. As they struggle to progress in life, they are each introduced to a program called Dear Life, that is meant to help them face whatever personal challenges they are struggling with. One deals with the death of her husband, another deals with facing the world after a sheltered upbringing, one faces the aftermath of a selfless and painful choice they made for their baby, and another deals with having had nothing but a negative and tough life growing up.

Hollyn knew happiness and love but when her life is drastically turned upside down, she buries herself in the all consuming sadness she feels. Jace has a promising career as a professional baseball player but his life brings him to a place where he must make a heavy decision while trying to keep it out of the public eye. He must face the toughest choice of his life and the emotional results of it all. Next, you have Daisy. She’s been raised by her grandmother and finds it challenging to finally have to face everything that is new in her life. And then you have Carter. Despite having parents that were selfish addicts, and being raised by a mean uncle, he’s always had a dream that has been his constant light at the end of his unpleasant tunnel. He struggles to look beyond the negative that has become his normal perspective in life.

“Dear Life” is not your average romantic novel. It digs deeper and touches on dynamics that will, in one moment, just rip at your heart then flip completely, and tug at one’s heartstrings. Will life break Jace, Hollyn, Carter, and Daisy, or is there really a way they can grow past their obstacles in life? Will the the Dear Life program actually introduce them to something good or will it just make things worse? And when one door closes, no matter how painful it is, will the next lead them toward a place of growth and healing? Can they each succeed in the program and truly overcome whatever drawback or hurdle they’ve been dealt? This novel was quite unique and touching. I highly recommend this novel for those who love a great story that will emotionally hold onto you until the very end. And  to Meghan Quinn, it was a beautiful addition to add the personal touch at the end. You should definitely add “Dear Life” to your life!

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘DEAR LIFE’

Hollyn’s thoughts: What was supposed to be a love of everlasting armor was easily cracked, broken, and lost. Sorrow, anguish, and heartache pour from my eyes, coating my cheeks and soaking my shirt in a collection of lost memories. This is it, this is my life full of… nothing.

Jace’s thoughts: They are glazed over with sleep but I take this moment, I take it like a greedy fucking bastard and savor it. Eye contact. Inwardly, I speak to her, begging her to remember me, to know me, to believe me when I say I love her.

Carter’s words: “I lost the one thing that was going to change my life and put me on the right track, that was going to set me free. I know how you feel, Snowflake, wanting that freedom.” A little more quietly, looking down at his hands, he adds, “I know all too well.”

Daisy’s thoughts: The reflection in the mirror is the girl I’ve always known. She’s sheltered, naive, old-fashioned, maybe a little outdated, slightly childish. I’ve always liked her, but maybe there  is more for the girl in the mirror. Maybe it’s time for her to grow up. Maybe she’s not as likeable as I once thought. I want there to be more.

Carter and Jace: “Daisy and I are completely different. She’s exploring the world for the first time. I know the shit the world has to offer.”
“But you’re helping her,” I add.
He shrugs his shoulders. “There is something about her I like. She fascinates me. If I have to do this program, I might as well help her on her journey.”

Carter’s thoughts: She renewed my spirit with one simple, yet gorgeous smile. How is that even possible? That this woman, who knows nothing except how to be positive, can have such an effect on me? Either way, for whatever reason, I crave to be around her right now. She’s the only bright spot in my life. It might not be permanent -it can’t be permanent -but I’m going to be a selfish bastard and soak her up as much as possible, because at least around her, I don’t hate myself as much.

Jace and Hollyn: “Don’t throw that away on a few wasted words that were said in the heat of the moment but meant nothing. Like you said, don’t devalue what you had because of a mistake.”
He pauses, allowing time for his words to sink in. Shaking his head, eyes cast down, he chuckles. “Fuck, I hate that what we are going through is so similar and yet, so different.”
“Like we were meant to find each other. Help each other.”
“As if we were brought together in this world, at the most difficult times in our lives, to be mad, but with a purpose.”

The Mortal Instruments: Shadowhunters. TV Series is Coming!

The Mortal Instruments fandom was heard loud and clear… and the end result is this: ‘Production to begin again…but in a different direction!’

Mortal Instruments - Shadowhunters 1

Scroll further down to find the UPDATES section for any and all updated News about ‘City Of Ashes’ and the ‘Mortal Instrument’ series.

⭐★⭐

Original Post (Pre-TV Series news): Bad reviews, a soft opening and a tepid $80 million worldwide haul—these are not the signposts for a successful launch of a YA franchise. And indeed, despite a small but very vocal fanbase for “The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones,” it seemed that Constantin Film had thrown in the towel when it was announced that the in-development sequel, “The Mortal Instruments: City Of Ashes,” was being shut down indefinitely. The future of the series was in doubt, but today, it looks like fans of Cassandra Clare have reason to rejoice.

It seems your letters and petitions have paid off as Constantin has revealed that ‘City Of Ashes’ will continue forward one way or another. “The fan response, from the blogosphere and the thousands of mails we have received, has encouraged us to keep going,” head of the company’s film and TV Martin Moszkowicz told THR, before adding the zinger: “It’s been overwhelmingly positive, in contrast to some other YA titles.” But that doesn’t mean that he’s completely blind to the fact that ‘Bones’ failed to find a wide audience.

“We are analyzing what we did wrong with the first film, particularly with the positioning and marketing, and what changes we have to make,” he explained. “We are working with a great group of people to reposition the franchise.”

It’ll be interesting to see how Constantin approach production on the sequel. We can’t imagine they’ll spend more than the $60 million they did on ‘City Of Bones’ this time around, but clearly there is something in the numbers they’re getting to indicate this series is worth a second crack. -via: indiewire.
