ARC Review: MESS ME UP ( Bear Bottom MC #1 ) by USA Today Bestselling Author LANI LYNN VALE @LLVtwitter @InkslingerPR

MessMeUp[182971]BC

 

When Rome Pierce moved to Bear Bottom, Texas, it was his intention to lay low. To not be seen. To find a way to heal his body and soul—as well as his son’s.

Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bare Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated.

No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone.

Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her.

She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights. She’s the bright and shining star in his pitch-black sky.

And he doesn’t even know her name.

He should be afraid that she knows things that not anyone—not even his best friend—knows.

Yet, with each encounter, he gives what little bit of his soul remains, and before he knows it only two people on this earth—one dying, and one too afraid to live—make his life worth living.

Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world.

Two impossible situations. One decision that would change him forever.

REVIEW:

I really loved this book it had everything, with one proviso get the tissues out. My god the emotions and the feelings this book pulls from you. This book is so intense, you can’t put it down.
This has got to be one of my favourite books I‘ve in the last few months. Rome and Isabel were great together. This the first in the Bear Bottom Series. Rome was a professional football player who retired due to family reasons. The Bear Bottom MC rallies around him in his time of need.
I just loved Izzy she was great, just perfect for Rome. Even with all her own tragic family she was with him every step of the way. I not giving anything away, but this is a must read for me. This is a heartbreaker, so thank you Miss Vale for all my heartache and tissues. A Great read.

REVIEW:

What a great story this is, so heartbreaking and beautiful in places, especially when Roman and Harper  are together. Harper’s new landlord wants more than she is willing to give. After a call to the love of her life Roman, even though they have been separated for 10 years. Roman arrives in Texas to help find out whats happening.
This book had it all, murder, corruption, love and great friendships.

Harper is lucky she had a great support system with friends, as her family was murdered. I loved James and her great group of friends. I would love to get inside his head. This is written with dual narration allowing us inside Roman and Harper’s head, as I said before my favourite way to read.

 
I haven’t read Emma Renshaw, that’s going to change as I love plenty of action in a well written story. So I’m looking to read more of the vow series. I must admit I do love the separated lovers that still love each other. As soon as they see each other you can feel it in the air the love and passion that they can’t hide.

Since I wrote my review I have found out the next book in the series is going to be Vow Of Honor and the hero is James, as I already said I’m dying to get inside of his head. I can’t wait!

Blog Tour + Review: THE RIP VAN PROJECT by KARRI THOMPSON @KarriThompson @InkslingerPR

Today we have the blog tour for the entire VAN WINKLE PROJECT Series by Karri Thompson. The series is an amazing YA Dystopian series you NEED to check out!

 

About MIRROR X (Book 1)

 

I was born more than a thousand years ago.

Put into a cryogenic tube at age seventeen, forgotten during a holocaust that decimated the world, I’ve finally been awakened to a more serene and peaceful future.

But things at the hospital are new and strange. And it’s starting to scare me.

Everyone is young. Everyone is banded and tracked. And everyone is keeping secrets.

The cute geneticist Michael Bennett might be the only good thing in this crazy new world where “life is precious” but no one seems free to live it. The problem is, I don’t think he’s being totally honest with me, either.

When I’m told only I can save the human race from extinction, it’s clear my freeze didn’t avoid a dreadful fate. It only delayed the horror…

MIRROR X Buy Links 99¢ for a limited time!

About ASCENDANCY (Book 2) 

I’ve been lied to, deceived, and manipulated—again. You’d think I’d be treated with dignity and respect. I’m the one who’s supposed to save humanity, right? I’m the one with the power to re-populate this dying world. But the clones want to control me, force me to give birth over and over again. And my daughters will face the same fate—unless I change it.

My awakening into this future should have been a chance for a new life, but it just promises a living death. With Michael on my side, though, maybe I can save us. He’s the only person I can trust.

I hear rumors of others… A secret society is growing. Tension is building.

A rebellion is imminent.

About RELEGATION (Book 3)

The end is near—and I’m fated to save humanity.

I’m feared, yet revered. The presidents are leery of me, but I’ve read the files. And I know the truth—at least, I think I do. And I’m the one who is going to tell the clones. They deserve to know.

Michael and I have been forced to fight, to kill. We’ll do anything to keep our daughters safe and free. But we can’t do it alone. There’s a rumor about a secret society eager for battle… and we’re going to find them. Help them end the government’s corruption.

It’s my duty, my calling as the first mother of the new world I want to create.

This started with me, and that’s where it’s going to end.

REVIEW:

I afraid you will have to excuse me, I just emerging from the future after reading the three books in the series one after another. First we have MirrorX where Cassie a seventeen year old was killed in a helicopter accident 2022. Cassie’s grandfather believed in cryogenics and placed Cassie in the company specialist S.T.A.S.I.S in Los Angeles.
So poor Cassie is awakened in 3022, we memories of just before the accident. Helpless in a bed with a body so wasted she cannot move. It doesn’t take long for Cassie’s real personality come peeking out, but she knows she can’t do anything until she is fit enough. This book finishes a story arc as they escape to Tasma to complete there project.

The Ascendancy
You just so know the perfect peaceful world is not all it seems ,and after being betrayed they get ready to implement the project in Tasma.
I not going to give to much away except to say I could see these books in a film format in my head as Michael and Cassie move through regions not knowing who to trust after being let down after Cassie finding out the truth of what happened to her.

In this brave new world a plague decimated the population 500 years before. One side effect left all women infertile, so for the last 500 years they have used cloning. Unfortunately the female clones are infertile. So all the populations left are all clones, and he who has the technology has the power.

This is a great trilogy as we watch the world trying to change and to be free. Let me say I enjoyed this immensely and I still firmly trapped in the 3020s. I hope these come in an Audio format, and these are written for YA market so we have plenty action, underhanded behavior. The only unpleasant things that happen is what is in context to the story. This old bird thoroughly enjoyed my trip to the future.
