Blog Tour + Review: STORM OF GODS ( An Areios Brothers Novel ) by AMY BRAUN @amybraunauthor @XpressoReads


Storm of the Gods
Amy Braun
(An Areios Brothers Novel)
Publication date: August 27th 2018
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

The first in a brand new urban fantasy series where gods roam and mortals fight, STORM OF THE GODS follows two brothers who are caught in a conspiracy revolving around ancient artifacts, and find themselves siding with their supposed enemies rather than the Olympian who demands their loyalty…

Thirty years ago, the gods of Greek legend returned to the world. Their return restored their powers, which had been spent in a cataclysmic battle with the Titans. With the ancient deities imprisoned in Tartarus, the Olympians now reside in Néo Vasíleio, formerly known as California.

Twenty-four-year-old Derek Aerios is a war scion, a descendent of Ares, the God of War. He and his brother, eighteen-year-old Liam, capture mythological creatures and rogue scions as part of Ares’s elite military force. As he struggles to cope with his violent powers and the scars of a traumatic childhood, Derek tries to keep the two vows he has made: protect his brother, and never kill a human again.

But when Ares forces him to hunt and kill four rogue scions under Athena’s control—by threatening Liam’s life—Derek chooses to go after the scions in order to save his brother and keep his promise to himself.

Yet the closer Derek gets to the scions, the more he realizes that his orders are part of a deeper conspiracy that put him at odds with his mission and his conscience. Athena may not be the enemy, a traitor could be in their midst, and the Titans could be closer to freedom than ever before.

REVIEW:

This is an action packed start to a new urban fantasy Series. I will say quickly this an adult series, as some of the situations and violence is quite extreme, but totally in proportion when dealing The Olympians, especially Ares who happen to be Derek and Liam’s boss. As they have his diluted bloodline It entitles him to treat them worse them slaves.
I loved the brothers Derek and Liam and how they stick together. Derek is very protective of those he cares about. This is a fascinating read Amy Braun gives you a handy prefix to go through their elements. So if your mythology is a big rusty this is a good reminder. As we meet Scions from different gods it’s a helpful reminder.
As this is book one there is the world building, but don’t worry it still has plenty of  action. I enjoyed reading this a lot and devoured in one go. Now I’m waiting for book two.

REVIEW:

Wow what a start to a new series, you read the blurb. Six men are rescued from a lab they have no memories. The only people they can rely on are each other and the man that rescued them.
After many months of help and trying to learn to live in the normal world.
They know there is one place they may get answers. Posing as documentary makers .a couple of the man go to find a woman and have a drink, they don’t even know what they drink. The drugs whitewashed everything from the brain.

This is a fantastic new series, as this was the first in a series there is lots of background information, as we get to know the guys who still learning how to behave. When Jax meets River on his first night out with one of the guys. They hit it off and go back to her place for the night not realising that it will be River’s company is leading them into the wilderness.
Jax and River fall in love, but there is so many enemies out to stop reaching the old government facilities. This has everything sex, love, villains or baddies. This is an absorbing story, and a brilliant series. This was a great read and I loved Jax and the guys. River loved Jax and he deserved it. I’m not giving anything else away excerpt to say this was a gripping start to a new Series.

REVIEW:

It was a real pleasure to read this book, as I have had a soft spot for Amanda and Jordon after meeting then in More Than Friends.
So meeting a mature Tuttle was pure pleasure, he had everything he wanted in life, but it was empty without Amanda. Amanda thought she was okay until she saw him being interviewed, and messaged him.
So if you have followed their romance this is a must read, but if you haven’t followed the couple from high school, this is a wonderful well written second chance romance. To feel the love read the first 2 books. Then you can approve of the adult Mandy and Jorden and there forever. For me this was a real pleasure, a must read for fans of Tuttle and Amanda.

Audiobook Review Blog: THE SECRET CHORD (The Conor McBride Series Book 2 ) by KATHRYN GUARE, Narrated by Wayne Farrell @KGuare

Author: Kathryn Guare

Narrator: Wayne Farrell

Length: 10 hours and 26 minutes

Publisher: Kathryn Guare

Series: The Virtuosic Spy, Book 2

Released: Feb. 20, 2018

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Those who love romantic suspense and thrillers with heart have found their new literary crush.

An Irishman on the run. He’s left a lot of things behind him…but they’re not far enough back.

Conor McBride has lost everything, and if he can’t find a way to disappear in a hurry, the next thing he loses could be his life. Running from enemies he’s never met and haunted by his own destructive actions, Conor needs a refuge secure enough to hold his secrets. A farmhouse inn tucked amidst the green mountains of Vermont seems ideal, but when his past catches up with him, Conor discovers the beautiful young innkeeper has secrets of her own, and hers are more likely to get them both killed.

Author of the award-winning Conor McBride Series, Kathryn Guare’s character-driven novels are all somewhere on the spectrum between romance and suspense, and some are even perfectly balanced between the two. She has a passion for exploring diverse cultures and cuisine, Classical music and all things Celtic, and has a habit of mixing these into her stories along with other topics and enthusiasms that capture her interest. Formerly, as an executive with a global health advocacy organization, she traveled extensively throughout the world. Currently, as a native Vermonter, she hates to leave home during foliage season.

Narrator Bio

Internationally acclaimed voice actor Wayne Farrell began his professional career at The National Theatre of Ireland, where he met the legendary Irish seanachai Eamon Kelly and became fascinated with the art of storytelling. Using skills learned during this time, Farrell has worked extensively in both documentary and audiobook narration and is widely admired for the rich clarity and versatility of his voice. His credits include award-winning authors such as Donal Ryan, whose debut novel The Spinning Heart won The Guardian’s First Book Award as well as Irish Book of the Year; and New York Times and USA Today bestsellers such as Morgan Rice, author of the fantasy epic The Sorcerer’s Ring.

Well what can one say after 10hours and 25 minutes of nonstop intrigue and deception.
We follow Conner McBride after he sells the farm and property after the death of his mother. Conner is world class musician and plays the violin. He leaves Ireland and goes to Vermont to work on a farm and old Inn that his employee and friend introduced him too via internet.
Conner can’t believe his luck when he meets Kate, his boss. They start to full in love, but before they can start enjoy life. Unfortunately both their pasts comes back to haunt them. Once we find out Conner had worked with MI6 in the past, and they need his help again.
This is a book full of spies, and bad men that need to be behind bars. There is love between Kate and Conner and I was absorbed and listened in one go and now need the next one. This book had everything, and it had to be listened to carefully in case you miss something.
I really enjoyed listening to the narrator’s voice, and his Irish lilt was pleasure to listen to. I kept me so focused on the action the time sped to fast.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Kathryn Guare. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

  • Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook and how you selected your narrator.
    • I used “ACX”, which is an audiobook platform offered by Amazon to match up authors with narrators. It’s great, because all the technical bits and bobs that I know nothing about are taken care of. All I had to do was upload a script for the auditions and agree on the contract with the narrator to get it all started, then upload an audiobook cover and description for the Audible and iTunes listings. There was a process for giving narrators an opportunity to audition, using the script I’d provided. I was beyond thrilled to have Wayne Farrell agree to take on the work. He’d narrated one of my all-time favorite books (“The Spinning Heart”) and I could hardly believe my luck!
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you? What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
    • Yes, I love audiobooks. I once had a job with a 1-hour commute both ways and I went through dozens of audiobooks. I love having someone tell me a story. It can be captivating in a way that’s different from reading it on the page, and I don’t think it’s cheating at all. It’s just a different sort of experience, and I just read a news story that science suggests listening to a book is a more emotional experience than seeing a movie based on it!. There are so many books and so little time! I’m happy to use anything that helps me get through more of them and I always have a paperback and an audiobook going at the same time (Well, not at the same time, but you know what I mean!)
  • Do you believe certain types of writing translate better into audiobook format?
    • I’m sure that’s true. Probably books that are strong on plot, action and dialogue work the best, but whatever the genre, the things I find tedious when reading a book are the same things I have trouble with when listening to one. If there is too much exhaustive description of setting, or facts and figures, and too little language that pulls me into the story or subject matter, I start to get impatient. But for me, the narrator is key more than genre. If I am enjoying the voice, and the storytelling skills of the person narrating, I can put up with almost anything else.
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • I think I probably had a movie more in mind than the audiobook. Not because I really wanted to see the book made into a movie, but because I could see the movie in my head as I wrote it. Some readers have mentioned that the book feels “cinematic” and they can also easily picture a movie.  However, I recently read a news story that scientists believe an audiobook can be a more emotionally involving experience for a reader than seeing a movie based on the book!
  • If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles?
    • Oh, I’ve had this conversation with so many readers and friends! He’s probably a little too old for the role now, but I’ve always said I’d be happy with Hugh Jackman as Conor. The role he played in the film “The Fountain” struck me as closest to the appearance and personality of Conor. And I think Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) would do a great job as Sedgwick. And for Kate, hmmm, maybe Alexis Bledel?
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
    • I did provide some brief descriptions of how I viewed the characters, but I thought it best to let the narrator develop his own approach, rather than asking him to adopt an accent or particular vocal style he may not be comfortable with. For me, it was most important that Conor McBride sound authentically Irish, which is why I was determined to have an Irish narrator. There were a few corrections when the UK/Irish pronunciation of a word slipped into an American character’s dialogue, but not often. Wayne has a remarkable range and facility with accents, and by the time I was listening to the chapters he’d already done his own editing and correcting.
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    • This book is mostly set in Vermont, and I am a native Vermonter, so there are a lot of settings drawn from my own experience. The setting for the Rembrandt Inn was inspired by my cousin’s gorgeous house in Greensboro, VT, which does overlook a gorge that has a brook running through it. My heritage is Irish, so the scenes in Ireland were also drawn from my experiences visiting the places on the Dingle Peninsula.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • Well, I have to admit that ever since I wrote the book, I was looking forward to having the romantic chemistry between Kate and Conor brought to life. I almost think hearing it in audio is better than the movie, because it is still the book the way I wrote it rather than an adaptation, and it was really a treat for me to hear!
  • How did you celebrate after finishing this novel?
    • Probably with a little “happy dance” and an ice-cold cocktail.
  • Have any of your characters ever appeared in your dreams?
    • Yes, and it was fantastic. I’ll say no more. 😉
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
    • The standard advice to writers is “write what you know” and I think that is very limiting and intimidating. My advice is “write what you want to know” because that opens up the world for you. Take the time to do the research to learn what you need to, then just go at it and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t or shouldn’t do it.
  • Do you have any tips for authors going through the process of turning their books into audiobooks?
    • After you’ve found a narrator who has the voice and skill that you want, and you’ve given them some basic guidelines, you have to let it go and let them do the work. It’s like turning your screenplay over to the director and actors. If the narrator is focused on responding to your detailed direction it means they aren’t developing their own relationship with the story and the result will be less than it could have been.
  • What’s next for you?
    • I’m working on writing the fourth book in the series, and the audio version of the 3rd book, City Of A Thousand Spies is in production so it will be available on Audible and iTunes before too long. Stay tuned!

With her cousin’s wedding coming up, and her parent’s expecting to meet this mysterious boyfriend, Peyton is forced to come clean and ask Leo a huge favor.

REVIEW:

I couldn’t resist a book with the title Tall, Dark and Irresistible and I was right, I loved it.
Peyton lives in New York and to keep her overprotective parents of her back, she told them that  Leo Stone her boyfriend looks after her, and not to worry.
Peyton was madly in lust and had big crush on Leo in Chemistry at college where they were lab partners.
Of Course her cousin is getting married and her parents expect her boyfriend to come and stay for the week.
Things I enjoyed about this book is Leo is a nice guy as well as being swoonworthy. Peyton is a great girl, being an only child she wanted save her parents worry
When they meet up and Leo agrees to the ruse he realises the chemistry between them is off the charts.
A Hot sexy funny romance and I loved it. The narration was duel, so we hear from both Peyton and Leo. I always dual with a romantic comedy. You really do feel like a fly on the wall. So this is a must read for fans of pretend boyfriends who are so hot you must really want to know what happens and how they get there.

Excerpt:

The two of them reached Leo’s vehicle, and the doors unlocked with a chirp as he pressed the key fob in his free hand. But instead of opening the passenger side for Peyton, he instead turned her around to face him . . . trapping her between the unyielding metal surface of the car behind her and the tall, muscular man standing less than two feet away.

He casually placed a hand on the door beside her and leaned a few inches closer. “Before we go, I have one more question for you,” he said, his tone serious.

She inhaled the warm, masculine scent of his cologne mingling with leather from his jacket and tried not to let that intoxicating fragrance distract her. “Okay.” She figured it couldn’t get any worse than everything she’d already admitted.

“So, usually, when a person gets propositioned, they get something out of the deal,” he said, his heavy-lidded gaze dropping to her mouth. “You’d be getting a devoted boyfriend out of the arrangement. What would I get?”

She didn’t miss the suggestion in his eyes or the playful curve of his smile. “What do you want?” she asked, unable to hide the breathless quality of her voice.

“Well, for starters, how about a show of good faith, like a kiss?” His free hand came up and gently cupped the side of her face, while his thumb skimmed along her damp bottom lip. “I think it’s important to know what I might be getting myself into and if we’re compatible enough to pull off this whole pretend boyfriend/girlfriend thing. I mean, what if we kiss and we realize that there’s just no spark there? Then this whole farce is doomed for failure.”

He was teasing her. She could see the mischievous glimmer in his eyes, and it provoked a smile from her, even as her breathing escalated with every second that passed with the temptation of finally having Leo’s lips pressed against hers dangling like a carrot in front of her.

“Then kiss me so we can find out,” she whispered.

His thumb dipped down beneath her chin to tip her head back as he lowered his mouth to hers. His lips were surprisingly soft as they found hers for the first time, his teeth gentle as they nibbled at her bottom lip. She couldn’t hold back the needy moan that escaped her throat, or the way her hands instinctively lifted and settled against his solid chest even as he pressed closer to her, his hard thighs and hips pinning her against the car.

“Jesus,” he breathed against her lips in shock, clearly feeling the heat between them that was a spark on the verge of becoming an undeniable blaze.

Sliding both of his hands into her hair, he held her head steady as he came back for another taste, and this time, there wasn’t an ounce of gentleness in the way he swept his tongue inside and plundered her mouth—boldly, deeply, greedily. She made a wild, desperate sound as she fisted her hands in his cotton T-shirt and matched him kiss for kiss, turning that blaze into an inferno that was so hot it threatened to singe them both. And in the moment, neither one of them seemed to care.

She felt the unmistakable ridge of his erection nudging against her belly, and a new hunger spiraled tighter inside her. Desire made her knees weak, her nipples excruciatingly hard, and her panties wet. Everything about Leo Stone was sensation overload to every part of her body, and if there was any worry in either of their minds about pulling off a believable attraction, this kiss eliminated any and all concerns.

By the time Leo finally lifted his mouth from hers, they were both breathing hard from all the heightened sexual tension between them. His dark eyes glittered with lust as he gazed down at her, looking as dazed as she felt.

Somehow, someway, she found her voice. “Was that convincing enough for you?” she asked huskily.

His low, sexy chuckle made her shiver. “Oh, yeah . . . it was definitely a good start.”

WebsiteTwitterFacebook

This is a one audiobook, but contains the following novellas Chosen, Crowned, Turned, Mated each novellas is quite short. This is about a young Vampire Princess who has to choose a human consort from 4 young hunks from the human world.
As this a Reverse Harem, Felicity can’t make a choice, so all four go back to palace with her. There is plenty of sex, and plenty intrigue to try to keep Felicity from taking the crown.
If you enjoy a reverse harem with plenty action in the bedroom, and plenty of angst before everything falls in place
The narration by Lucy Laurel is very fast, and sounds almost breathless. It more a reading than the narration with different voices.
It was a quick listen, but no less enjoyable for it.

There’s something different about Kate’s four-year-old son. He wasn’t created the old fashioned way. Now a violent cult wants him dead and Kate will do anything to protect him – until they take her daughter.

In tomorrow’s world, Kate is haunted by a brutal past. Struggling to navigate a life that seems like an experiment in virtual reality, her paranoia threatens to consume her. But when someone tries to kidnap Mally, she realises she was absolutely right to be afraid.

With only hours to go before the cult’s prophecy is to be fulfilled, Kate and Seth face more danger than they’ve ever imagined, desperate to keep him safe. However, the charismatic leader of the cult has other ideas, which puts Kate in an impossible position. Who will she choose to live, and who will she have to sacrifice?

SYNOPSIS:

Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.

Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

REVIEW:

The first thing I have to say before I start writing my review. I am waiting for me to stop my tears even though the book it finished on promising note.
This is a long but addictive read about what happens after the crash of civilisation. When we meet Thais its seven years after the fall, she lives with her father and her sister Sosie. They appear to be surviving until her father is killed and the sisters are captured and sent to Lexington where civilisation has devolved to an alarming degree.
It’s in Lexington is where she meets Atticus and they escape and start their journey to Shreveport where it’s a good and fair place to live. Lexington was worse than the old west.
The things made this such a good book is how realistic everything felt and unfortunately it rang too true.
How far would you go to survive and how it changes you on the inside if you let it. Atticus struggled everyday with what he had to do, and it was Thais that kept him going. Sometimes people are made stronger and learn to survive.
This is Atticus and Thais journey to civilisation, and a long and arduous journey, where meet a lot of different people some good and some bad. It was how they both changed into good and strong people who can survive in this new world. I loved this book every page of it. Be prepared for your emotions be very involved and get tissues ready.

ARC Review: DIRTY RICH OBSESSION New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES is Now LIVE! @LisaReneeJones

DIRTY RICH OBSESSION AN

DIRTY RICH OBSESSION

 

A MAN OF CONTROL. A WOMAN WHO’S ABOUT TO TAKE IT.

Reid Maxwell is one of the top corporate attorneys and one of the most eligible bachelors in New York City. He likes his wins big, his women beautiful and in bed, not out, and most importantly the deep burn of his past buried. Until one woman, a most unexpected woman, challenges him in ways that might just destroy the invincible Mr. Maxwell.

Carrie West is captive to Reid Maxwell and a debt between their families she doesn’t know exists. It should be so simple for Reid Maxwell. Claim the company that is now his. The problem: he’s now obsessed with Carrie, the daughter of the man he’s destined to destroy.

Now who’s captive to who?

DIRTY RICH OBSESSION BUY LINKS

 

 

EXCERPT:

 

Why am I here, Reid?”

I drag her onto my lap. “Because I want you here. Because I can’t seem to stop breaking my own fucking rules with you.”

Her hands plant on my shoulders. “And you’re mad at me again? You’re blaming me.”

“Yes. Stop making me break my rules.” I cup her head and kiss her, my tongue pressing past her lips, stroking us both into a needier place, where rules don’t matter.

She moans and sinks into the kiss, and damn it, I love those moans, I’m addicted to those moans. I’m addicted to this woman, and all my good intentions to sate that addiction, fail. I pull my T-shirt over her head and toss it, my gaze raking over her. My hand slides between her shoulder blades, and I mold her close. “This is definitely your fault.”

“Is this where you decide to kick me out again?”

“No,” I say. “This is where we fuck.” I drag her mouth to mine, and kiss her, telling myself that fucking is all this can be, reminding myself of the debt and the secret I legally cannot share. The secret that she’d never stay silent over if she knew.

I tell myself to get lost in the taste of her, defiant and yet submissive at the same time, in that way that defines this woman. I tell myself to just enjoy the moment, and I do. I waste no time getting naked and pulling her down the throbbing length of my cock. I waste no time driving into her. I waste no time getting lost in her touch, her kisses, her moans. And later, much later, when I’ve laid us down and pulled her next to me on the couch, I hold her, listening to her breathing slow and even out. I’m acutely aware that she is a woman caught in the middle of a debt that has to be paid, destined to hate me. It’s why this has to stay just sex. It’s why no matter how deep I go with her, I cannot get too close.

Romantic evening of a young couple.

REVIEW:

Well Lisa has done it, has me hooked and in love with a Dirty Rich Asshole, Reid Maxwell. I loved the chemistry right from the beginning between Carrie and Reid. Even if they both did not want to feel it.
Reid was fascinated with Carrie as she bested him at his own game. Handcuffs certainly piped his interest, and for that moment on Carrie was going to be his. Unfortunately for both of them working together to rebuild her family’s company causes them to respect each other.
This is a hot sizzling romance between two people who don’t believe in relationships. The thing I love about Lisa’s books is the female characters are always strong-minded and give the men a run for there money. Carrie is no different, but she can’t resist Reid even if she wants too.
I can’t recommend this book enough, if you love hot strong men with a heart of gold, and the women who can’t help loving them, enough sparks to start a fire then this is for you.

Publisher’s Note: This gripping sci-fi alien romance has it all: dragons, passion and tension. It also contains explicit themes and is intended for adults only.

REVIEW:

I so love getting involved in a series from the beginning. So I jumped at the chance to review a new paranormal sci- fi with hot sex thrown in. It’s a win win for me!
This series is based on earth, which is ruled by an alien race that have a problem with fertility, and only women with certain genetic match are chosen. Endora has always known she was a match but never consider the idea.
Unfortunately Tallie, Endora’s daughter has leukaemia and is fading fast. The only thing that can save her is the Alien technology, and that costs money she doesn’t have.So Endora does the unthinkable and leaves her daughter with her grandmother and goes to report in.
High Lord  Aldric Darragon rules what was America and one of the strongest of lords. What Endora doesn’t know is that Aldric had seen her years before when she was with Wilmer Tallie’s father. Aldric was enchanted, but since then he had closed his heart down.
I really enjoyed this book with action all the way. Great romance, lots of action, cute kids and nasty bad guy , all mixed together gives my an action packed adventure with great world building so we have a base for book two. I loved this book and read it in one go, So for me this series is going on my must buy list.
I’m looking forward to book two as I loved the dragons.
