Book Excerpt!


Growling under my breath, I bend down and begin shoving my stuff back into my bag.

“Here, you forgot this,” a deep voice says from behind me. Still crouched, I spin on the balls of my feet and immediately fall flat on my ass when I see who’s behind me.

Standing above me is Max. My Max. But that’s not possible, right? Maybe I’m having a psychotic break; the stress of the series is causing me to hallucinate.

Max bends down, bringing us to eye level. His face is millimeters from mine. He lets out a breath and it washes over me. Actual breath. From his lungs. In. My. Face. I gulp in air, finally able to breathe, and that’s a little better. I blink.

“Huh?” I croak. Brilliant.

“I said you forgot this,” he responds, his voice filled with laughter as he waves a tampon in front of my face like a magic wand.

Goddammit, it’s a super.

My face fills with so much heat I’m surprised it doesn’t singe my eyebrows straight off. Jumping to my feet, I scrutinize him carefully. He follows my movements, standing to his full height, and holy hell he’s tall.

At least a foot taller than my 5’4.” Just like I’d imagined. His hair is a dark auburn, so dark it looks like spilled blood at midnight; so dark it looks black until the sun hits it. His eyes are honey-brown, almost supernatural in their color.

It’s supposed to be unreal because he’s not real. What the frick?!

His face looks as if it’s carved from granite. In fact, every inch of him is defined. Light golden skin is stretched tightly over his muscles, and even though he is wearing a loose work out tank and track pants, I can tell he’s hard all over. I can tell because that’s how I wrote him. I’ve known him for almost ten years now.

“Are you ok?” he asks, his eyes crinkling at the corners with concern.

So many thoughts and words, too bad they’re all trapped in my throat. My hand rises on its own violation and… I poke him.

I poke his chest.

I touch him.

Holy effing shit!

“Oh my God!” I whisper-yell. Am I dreaming? I pinch myself hard and yelp. Nope, I’m awake. “Oh my God. This is not happening!”

Letters to Cora by Colleen Nye RELEASE DAY BLITZ!







Title: Letters to Cora

Author: Colleen Nye

Genre:Paranormal Romance


…With all my heart.


Finding one letter was inspiring to her story. Finding a second was exciting. But when Nell finds the third letter in the rock wall of her newly acquired estate, she’s a little more than curious as to what really happened to Joshua and his beloved Cora.

For this detached author who is starting her life over, Nell finds herself sucked into the idea of the intrigue, yearning and hoping that the lovers found a way to be together.

After asking a couple of new acquaintances in the nearby village about the estate’s history, she meets Reid, a historian and descendant of Joshua himself. They start to put together the pieces of the puzzle that seem to be a Romeo and Juliet style romance in the 1800’s.

Doubts, fears and suspicions threaten to interfere. But what they do learn is that Love sometimes crosses boundaries and time to happen, even in some of the most unexpected way

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller BOOK REVIEW!




                                                                 Amazon ** B&N





Title: The Song of Achilles


Author: Madeline Miller



This book is the retelling of the story of Achilles and the war of Troy.


In a world were the people are at the mercy of Kings and the Kings are at the mercy of the Gods, a young prince is just trying to become what his father wants in a prince. Patroclus isn't what you would call a typical prince. He hates fighting and he isn't much as far as physical strength goes making people fear his weakness. Patroclus spends his time alone mostly roaming the land when one day fate changed for him forever. After the death of a fellow child by the hand of Patroclus he is exiled to the land of the Greeks. Taken in by the local king Patroclus is just like the other orphans of the castle in the since that is just trained to be another soldier. Patroclus's lack of fighting ability makes him stand out to everyone including the prince of the castle Achilles. It doesn't take long for Achilles and Patroclus to become good friends, sharing everything with each other but the connection between the two seems to grow stronger to the point were they can't be without each other. A love sparks between the two that even time can't come between.


As they grow up together the bond between the two is stronger than ever and it would seem that a life in peace is in their future....until Helen is stolen and taken to Troy. The battle calls for a war hero to help with the rescue of the queen and Achilles is called upon. Patroclus not wanting to be left alone decides to follow even though he isn't much of a fighter.


Troy become torn apart with battle and raids for years they fight loosing much and gaining little. It would seem that the two will never return to the peaceful life they once lived. The weight of the war with the blood spilled threatens to tear the two apart but a love so deep can not be broken...or can it?



Rating:





Thoughts: This book isn't what I thought it was going to be. I knew it was a retelling of Achilles and the war of Troy but I still expected there to be more history in the story. There was some history but most of the story is heaped with fantasy aspects complete with mythological creatures as well as Gods and Goddesses. I also wasn't expecting the whole book to be a love story but that is mostly what it was, a lot of love and not as much action. Never the less I did like the story I just gave it three stars because it isn't what I truly wanted it to be.




Quotes






“He is more worth to you, perhaps. But the stranger is someone else's friend and brother. So which life is more important?”  - The Song of Achilles


 “I stopped watching for ridicule, the scorpion's tail hidden in his words. He said what he meant; he was puzzled if you did not. Some people might have mistaken this for simplicity. But is it not a sort of genius to cut always to the heart?”  - The Song of Achilles
