Barren Landscape,

A harsh Breeze,

Sunless Sky,

Pray for me.

Nobody left,

No calling Birds,

The world departed,

Where is God?

Your taunts arise,

Deaf ears they fall,

What is left?,

Is this truly all.

Move one step,

Take two back,

Raw throat,

A Broken Heart.

Who will cry,

O cry for me,

Landscape broken,

Set me free.

Freedom Given,

The price you pay,

No turning back,

Not today.

What to do?

What to say?

One more chance,

Todays the day.

Rest your head,

The sun will shine,

Upon your face,

You are divine.

Goodbye to you,

You’re sadly missed,

I will cry,

I grant your wish.

A wish bestowed,

The day you died,

O young man,

Here comes the tide.

Don’t you worry,

I’ll always be there,

Hands in hands,

I’ll treat them fair.

I’ll watch upon,

The ones you love,

Don’t you worry,

Fly white dove.

Sore high,

Among the clouds,

But don’t forget,

To come back down.

Give guidance,

A ray of light,

A small gesture,

A touch so light.

Always cherished,

Always there,

Our love for you will never falter,

this I swear.

Monday's Review of Beasthood By Author A.Z. Green

The bloody, raw meat was tantalizing her; calling to her. She hated it and yearned for it all at once.
Stop, she ordered. What are you doing?!
So hungryyyyy, snarled a primal voice deep within her.
Don’t you dare! she screamed back.
But the primal hunger ignored her pleas and took over her body, forcing her rational voice deep within the crevices of her mind.

What would you do if you discovered you weren't human? That you turned into a bloodthirsty monster against your will?
What if your instincts, emotions and desires were torn between your own and the dark, dangerous animal lurking inside of you?
If it could make you yearn for someone you shouldn't, make you say and act in ways you wouldn't and overwhelm your whole existence?
If everything you'd ever known about your life was a lie?

In a world where a deeply hidden community is swathed in mystery, deadly secrets, betrayal and murder, Jaz Barker struggles to fight against the dangerous Beast within her and the emotions and desires it thrusts her way.

When tensions ride high and people she cares about are put in danger, she will have to decide how much of her newly awakened animal-side she's willing to let in.

And if it is worth the risk...

Review of Beasthood

Rating: 3 stars

Jaz is the main character in the story, and she seems like a normal girl who suffers from an iron deficiency. But when she suffers a terrible dream that feels real to her she gets therapy. An aunt she didn’t know she had comes to take her off on a holiday to a spa and she goes feeling excited until she steps outside and a limo is waiting for her with its own driver.

When Jaz’s eyes lock with the driver who calls himself Driver she feels a sudden pull.
From that moment the story takes off, as it’s told through everyone’s perspective and we get to know what everyone is thinking and feeling.  I much prefer a story to be told in first person, that’s me I always enjoy them better, gauging people’s reactions from facial expression and not knowing what they are thinking, so straight away it kind of pulled me out of the story. As I know what everyone’s agenda was as such was.

Once Jaz reaches the “SPA” I got confused when she was chased, she was going there willingly yet she got out of the car to get sick and then all of a sudden she’s racing down a dirt road, with men on her heals, Driver being one of them. She’s taken and placed in a sealed room where she spends a few days’ terrified and confused. I was as confused as she was, but even as I read the story I still can’t for the life of me understand why she was chased. I re-read it three times thinking I missed something but I am still as confused. She believed it was a spa, why not let her walk to the room and shut the door behind her if they wanted to keep her locked up, why all the drama. Just didn’t get it.

Anyway she soon learns what she is but it’s all in small doses and her acceptance is pretty realistic, she has zero trust in everyone including her aunt, I don’t blame her. But she accepts her new life and starts to fall for Driver who was mated to her Sister, who died. It wasn’t weird as she wasn’t his true mate, but Jaz is.

For me it didn’t do it, but others may feel differently and should give it a read.

Her search leads her into the heart of the angels' secret plans where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go.

Review of World After
Rating: 4 stars

Angel Fall the first book was outstanding for its originality. World after was outstanding for its horror.

Some of the horror was towards the end of book one, but in World After it was on full throttle. Angels are experimenting on humans, turning them into monsters the fact that they don’t just do this man (not that it’s okay) No they take women and even children. This is tough to read especially with Paige being only seven. She’s stitched like a doll, her teeth sharp – made of steel and she’s a cannibal, yet she is only a little girl on the inside who wants to be loved, but  Penryn struggles with this. I don’t blame her Paige sounds freaky. But when Paige runs away Penryn realises it’s still her little sister and tries to track her down.

Raffe thinks Penryn is dead so she’s on her own with her “crazy” mother and Clara a women who was used to feed scorpion angels in book one. But Penryn saved her but Clara is not right she’s a shadow of her former self and has aged rapidly from her horrible experience in the lab.

While searching for her sister, Penryn her mum and Clara end up in Alcatraz and we see how the angel scorpions are been made, the most disturbing part was the amount of humans helping. While there Penryn watches a tape of her sister from the day she was taken and I think it takes another chunk from her heart, it broke mine. As Penryn continues her search her responsibility of people to save keeps growing and her family are pushed further away from her. It’s not until Raffe shows up that Penryn can take a breather but not for long as both of them go after Biebel. Raffe for his wings and Penryn for her sister once again.

An amazing yet horrifying journey that’s not over and I can’t wait for the next book.

Monday's Review of Break my Fall By Chloe Walsh


I was drunk but not drunk enough not to notice him. Good Lord, he was beautiful. Did boys like him really exist? I thought I might be imagining him. “You wanna have a shot with me sweetheart?” he smiled crookedly and lifted the bottle up. The huskiness of his voice made me him sound dangerous, yet he was soft spoken…an enigma.
When eighteen year old Lee Bennett moves in with her childhood friend Camryn, the last person she thought she'd meet was Kyle Carter. Kyle is everything Lee's been warned to stay away from, yet everything she's drawn to. His boldness, flirtatious nature and jaw dropping good looks have Lee's head in a spin, and she cant seem to stay away.
But the secrets of her past still haunt her, which makes her attraction to Kyle all the more scary...
Kyle Carter can't keep his eyes off his hot new roommate, or his hands. Lee is fresh and innocent, and everything Kyle knows he can't have. But that doesn't stop him from wanting her.The pressure of living together combined with the sizzling chemistry fuels an unstoppable liaison.
Both know they shouldn't be together, yet can't bear to be apart. They fall into a twisted affair of love, passion and deceit. Kyle's on/off girlfriend, Rachel has a hold on Kyle. She hold a dark secret of his past over him, that threatens to tear apart his relationship with Lee apart. The first girl he cared about. Lies, deceit, passion and first love fuel together in their tumultuous relationship.
Can Kyle break free from the bonds that hold him to Rachel? Can Lee forgive the indiscretion and lies. And will Kyle Carter be the man who can break her fall.

Review of Break My Fall

Star rating: 5 stars

I don’t normally read this genre, but I am glad I did. I just loved Break My Fall.

Lee moves in with her high school friend, and straight away you can see her innocence and fear. Her first night there she drinks a little too much and finally gets to meet another roommate, Kyle, who is drop dead gorgeous. Something sparks between the two of them, and Lee acts out of character by kissing Kyle back when he kisses her, only for the kiss to end by his kind-of girlfriend Rachel, who is pissed to say the least.

Lee dies of embarrassment the next day when she comes face to face with Kyle, and spills her coffee; it’s pretty funny how she gets around him. But as the story continues and we watch their love blossom for each other, so much more comes to the surface. I can tell you one thing, this book is drama, drama, drama, and I loved every second of it. I found myself laughing non-stop, or giving Lee a high five when she stood up to Rachel.

The part that got me the most is when Lee and Kyle have a fight in the Kitchen and he grabs her while screaming, it’s at the moment I could see the depth of Lee’s issues, she crumbles and I crumbled too. I had to put my book down, as I cried. It tore me apart; it was so well written I could feel every ounce of Lee’s pain. After the episode we find out exactly what happened to Lee and it’s so sad, but we also see why Kyle is the way he is too and what hold Rachel has on him.

The story is two people with messed up back grounds, both fighting the odds, and both falling for each other.
The sex scenes in the book where very heavy in my opinion, and once again it isn’t something I would normally read, but overlooking them, the story itself was brilliant I finished this book in one sitting and would highly recommend it to others.

  20963456 (1)

   Blurb: Adam Blake knows what fate awaits him after death. He has died before, and will die again, and always it’s the same. For Adam, there is no heaven, no hell, no reincarnation, or cold, final sleep. When he dies, his life flashes before his eyes; it rushes backward—nothing skipped or overlooked—until it stops, suddenly, at age twelve, one week after he had mysteriously disappeared in the woods behind his childhood home. Then, he wakes up. Adam is cursed—or blessed—to relive the same life again and again, from this moment onward, regardless of how he lives, who he becomes, or what ultimately causes next his demise. He is free to right past wrongs, avoid past mistakes, pursue any interest and chase any dream. But the longer Adam lives, the less anything matters but answers. He must know: Why is he stuck in this loop? What is its cause? How will it end? And what awaits him on the other side of death when it finally does?

Wednesday's Featured Author is T.L. Clark Author of True's Love


In this book we find promiscuous Amanda living the highlife; meek admin worker by day and wild clubber by night. We get to hear about a selection of her erotic night time adventures.
But she is surprised by love when she goes on holiday with her friend to Ibiza. The blonde bodyguard soon has her lowering her barriers. He shows her how much more there is to sex when the heart is truly engaged. But will this just be a holiday romance, will it lead to a long term relationship or will it end in tragedy? Join Amanda on her quest of exploration.


About the Author:

I'm a self-published author (on Amazon only at the moment). I'm 30something and was born and raised in the UK. I have a lovely and supportive husband and an irritating but much spoiled & loved cat.
I have a mundane 9-5 job, but fit my writing in around that and practising holistic therapies.
Each of my books is completely separate from the other, so you don't have to read them in any particular order. I've tried to look at love from different angles.
Youngs Love - was the first book I wrote. It features Samantha striving for independence. As she breaks away from her controlling marriage she explores the world of dating with varying results. There's a trip to Tuscany and lots of slushy bits as well as some raunchy scenes. Look out for the extra strong mints!
Trues Love - follows feisty Amanda who loves her free & single world filled with nights of passion with different men. She goes to Ibiza with a girly friend and runs into a blonde Adonis of a bodyguard. Is this true love or a holiday romance? It's certainly not short on action.
Dark Love - I wrote this by popular demand. It's the BDSM one! Male Submissive Jonathan is guided by Mistress Eisengrau through a world of dungeons and a journey of self exploration.
I hope you enjoy reading my books. If you do, please please leave a review. I truly appreciate every single review.

Monday's Review of The System By Teshelle Combs



1 + 1 = Dead.

That’s the only math that adds up when you’re in the System.

Everywhere Nick turns, he’s surrounded by the inevitability of his own demise at the hands of the people who stole his life from him. That is, until those hands deliver the bleeding, feisty, eye-rolling Nessa Parker. Tasked with keeping his new partner alive, Nick must face all the ways he’s died and all the things he’s forgotten.

Nessa might as well give up. The moment she gets into that car, the moment she lays her hazel eyes on her new partner, her end begins. It doesn’t matter that Nick Masters can slip through time by computing mathematical algorithms in his mind. It doesn’t matter how dark and handsome and irresistibly cold he is. Nessa has to defeat her own shadows.

Together and alone, Nick and Nessa make sense of their senseless fates and fight for the courage to change it all. Even if it means the System wins and they end up…well…dead.

About the Author:
Teshelle Combs is the award winning author of the YA action/romance novel, 'The System," and contemporary fantasy novel, "Core."

Review of The System
Star rating: 4 stars

Nessa Parker is the main character and she’s strong, loyal and witty. I just loved her. Taken from her normal life she’s into the system. The system wasn’t really what I expected the violence that Collins delivers to them, had me shocked to the core and their reason for being in the system was even more appalling. They had to assassinate certain people, if they failed their lives where over. Nessa isn’t normal but has a rare gift as such, she can kill you without touching you. She finds out some horrible truths about her parents and about herself but she stays strong through it all. I cried when I read a certain part with her dad, it just broke my heart; it was unfair, cruel and heart-breaking. But it fuels Nessa’s reason to fight the system and with Nick at her side she has everything to fight for.
Nick O god, he was messed up, silent and deadly but I loved him, and I loved the chemistry between him and Nessa it was electrifying. Their moments together were so real for two people in such a messed up situation.

The book was very faced paced and never slowed down. I loved Adam and his power to heal. At first I wasn’t sure of him but towards the end I just felt for him so badly. This book is very violent and the conditions in the system where atrocious. But overall I loved it. It was something different and new, I have never read a book like it. I would recommend this to all paranormal readers.
