The Nephilim Warrior Series

I had the great pleasure of reading book one of this series. This book is a new twist on Vampires, Werewolves and Nephilims. I must say that I do want to continue reading this series! For now I just have to content myself with adding books 2 and 3 on my TBR list because of monetary issues and a husband forbidding me from any book purchases for the next month. *I know right!!! Torture much???*

Now back to this book, Book one was excellent. It kept me on the edge of my seat. Yes I figured out a few things before the author confirmed them, but all in all it was a very well written story. The characters are believable, the plot is wow... 

This book is TOTALLY different from other Nephilim, Vampire, Werewolf stories.
I loved that about the book! And the Prophecy itself... well you'll just have to read it to understand just how good that is! I have to admit that I really liked Elise and thought of my own friends and Anna was a very good character, she is strong, knows her own mind, and won't just sit back and take no for an answer. 

Just go get this series for yourself because you truly won't be sorry.

Stealing Fire Review

This book is about a definite May/December romance.  The age difference between the two main characters is quite large. 

I liked that the book was set in the 80's.  It's a change from the books I've been reading lately which are either set in the now or some time in the future.  So it was a nice change for me to take a trip back in time, and not too far that I couldn't remember what it was like then.  

Amanda works in a hotel and is a struggling singer.  Although she is a strange mix, she has severe stage fright and doesn't seem to me to want to be in the spotlight.  As someone who was a stage whore and would sing any chance I would get and tried out for every lead in every musical during my school days, I just can't imagine that dicotomy.  But I'm sure it must happen, so I went with it.

Beau is a lyricist, he once upon a time wrote musicals. And now is stuck writing jingles for commercials.  Oh how the mighty have fallen.  He is old, he is crotchety and he is angry at well the world basically.

What a strange mix these two are.  Yet for some unknown reason it works.  Not just for them, but for the reader as well.  I won't go into any more detail because I think you may just enjoy this book.  I give it 4.5 stars, It didn't quite hit that 5 star mark for me, but it was still a very good book.  I will say one thing the dialogue in this book was VERY well done, and quite entertaining.

Give this book a shot you will be pleasantly surprised.

Details/disclaimer: A review copy was provided for my fair and honest review. This free book held no determination on my final review.

Irresistible Refrain Tour and Review!

Title-Irresistible Refrain
Series- Tempest Series # 1
By-Michelle Mankin
Publication Date-October 3th, 2013
Genre-New Adult

Two years ago everything changed for the remaining members of the Seattle rock band Tempest.
Two years is a long time.
Too long to keep on remembering.
Not nearly long enough to forget.
In trouble with nowhere else to go songstress Lace Lowell seeks refuge with the band during their stop in New York City. It's a risky move for her because they are both there, two impossibly good looking men whose lives are inseparably entwined with hers. One who bruised her heart and one who smashed it into pieces.
Warren “War” Jinkins, the mercurial lead singer of Tempest, has always had a thing for Lace. But then again so does his best friend and band mate.
Bryan “Bullet” Jackson, the sinfully handsome tat-sleeved lead guitarist, has a bad boy reputation befitting his nickname. For the past two years Bullet’s had a rule with the groupies: one time, never twice, leave ‘em satisfied, but always leave ‘em.
Two guys, one woman, and a host of dark secrets all together within the tight confines of a tour bus as the group travels cross country.
Can the past be forgotten and buried?
Will friendships prevail?
Or will the three of them succumb to seductive impulses too addictive to resist?

** Irresistible Refrain is a gritty rock and roll tale intended for mature readers seventeen and up. Contains sexual situations, strong language, and drug use. **

  Okay now first let me say that I have basically fallen in love with Michelle Mankins characters thanks to her Black Cat series.  And this one follows suit.  The characters in this series will make you go crazy.  Between the misunderstandings, the confusion, the music industries crazy antics, and the tour and you have the makings of one heck of a nightmare.

You will absolutely LOVE Bryan. I know I did.  I won't go into any details on the characters other than to say they are well rounded, well written and entirely enjoyable to read.  The dialogue is unique, witty and so realistic that I could actually relate to so many of the conversations.

This book DOES deal with some VERY intense subject matter.  Namely drug abuse.  This is a rough subject matter for any author but I must say that Michelle Mankin has succeeded in writing a knowledgable story which teaches the readers but in no way will you see info dumps in this book.

And romance... Oh yes we do have that!  In spades!  I give this book 5 musical stars, and I must say don't just read this one but actually start with the first series she wrote the Black Cat series because you will better understand some of the references in this story.  It isn't necessary, but hey I HIGHLY Recommend ALL her books!!!!

I loved them and I'm sure you will too!

About the Author-
Michelle Mankin is a young/new adult romance writer as well as a self-proclaimed giant…inside her own mind.
For many years, she toiled in the insurance industry as an underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn’t kill her, and the hours of looking at facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander.
Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and the latest novel, Love Resolution are rock ‘n roll romances. The first is based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, the second on Much Ado About Nothing, and the third on The Tempest. The first three books in the Black Cat Records series combine the plot underpinnings of the famous playwright with the drama, excitement, and the indisputable sexiness of the rock ‘n roll industry.
When she is not putting her daydreams down on paper, you can find Michelle traveling the world with her family. Sometimes for real and sometimes just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.

Elise Michaels' motto has always been: no guts, no glory. She is a thrill seeker, continually craving excitement and adventure. The idea of being tied down to a place or man never interested her, even though a betrothal spell was cast linking her and the Head of Council’s son when they were mere infants.
Being a distant third in succession to assume the Head Mistress role, she felt confidant that her secret would remain in her past along with Coven life. Unfortunately, nothing in our fun loving heroine’s future is anything she or anyone from the supernatural realm is prepared for.
Now, she’s forced to return to the place and the Sorcerer she so desperately sought to forget.
Elise has no idea the power and gifts that await her. Can she let go of her own desires and embrace her new role? Or will she surrender to the faceless evil coming for them all?
