    No man has rattled wedding-planner Parker Brown in a long time, but the motorcycle-riding, raven-haired Mal seems to have a knack for it. His passionate kisses always catch her off guard, much like her growing feelings for him. Parker’s business risks have always paid off, but now she’ll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart….

    Overall

    I LOVE Nora Roberts...like hardcore....I find her writing to be highly superior. The being said, this was probably the worst book of hers I have ever read! I was so disappointed, not in the story but the flow and writing itself. I found myself feeling that most scenes were rushed and cut short, which is very unusual for her. In one instance there was a small plot line that was randomly thrown in at the end with explaination. Overall, it left me confused.

    Three decades ago, Jackie Schut was considered one of the most prolific "baby sellers" in the country. She traveled all over the US, murdered women who had just borne babies, and then stole their infants. She is still imprisoned in the South. A lovely, vibrant woman in San Antonio was found dead in a vacant lot. Her mother, a popular local realtor, never stopped looking for her killer. Just months ago, a truly unlikely suspect was found many states away.

    The writing on this book seemed a little dated to me and there was nothing that made it suspenseful or grabbed me. The story also seems to get side tracked which made it hard to follow in parts. I wouldn't recommend this book.

    What did you like best about City of Heavenly Fire? What did you like least?

    I love this series and I loved the story but narration by Jason Dohring was terrible! It was so off, it completely took me out of the story. Sophie Turner was fine, although the accent is a little weird. That being said...I can't wait for Dark Artifacts to start!!!!

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Overall

    I am a certified nerd girl! I love anything to do with pop culture, movies, music, comics and most importantly, video games, espically if they have to do with the 80's. So I was excited to say the least for this book to come out and I was NOT disapointed! This book totally spoke my lanuage, it took all my favorite things and mashed them up into one book. There was an early scene where the main character describes the feeling of playing videogames that made my hand fidget and start looking for the nearest controller. You could definatly feel the authors love for the subject matter in every chapter. Also, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention Wil Wheaton's narroration, which made the book a blast to listen to! This was by far my favorite book I've listened to this year. So please Ernest Cline, from the bottom of my nerdie heart, write another book and soon!
