Book Review: The Officer Breaks The Rules (Semper Fi #2) by Jeanette Murray

The Officer Breaks The Rules 
(Semper Fi #2)
By Jeanette Murray 

Blurb:

Viviana's Review:
Jeanette Murray (Author) set up Jeremy's and Madison's story in book 1 "The Office Says I Do". I knew they were going to be the focused of the next book and I couldn't wait! I will say that though this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone without any problems. 

Per the blurb, you know that Jeremy is trying to "do the right thing" by staying away from his best friend's younger sister, Madison and that she has been, well, let's not kid ourselves, she's been in love with him since she was 16 yrs old (when they first met). Now she's 26 years old and tired of the bantering back and forth, the tension that they both feel when they are in a room together and the shiver down her spine when she catches him watching her.

The tension between these two is, like wow! There's passion, emotional connection and a physical attraction that is magnetic! Literally, these two cannot stay away from each other. The author does a fantastic job of conveying the emotions of both Jeremy and Madison without making either of them sound like a jerk or a whiny and meek woman. On the contrary, you fall in love with both of them!

This is a wonderful story and continuation to a great series! Now I'm looking forward to getting my hands on "The Officer and the Secret (Semper Fi #3)"!

Rating: 4 Stars - Love It!

Guest Post & Giveaway: The Dysus Dreamer by JA Garland





A few brave souls and I recently participated in a Run For Your Lives--Zombie race in Seattle, WA. Our mission, to traverse a challenging obstacle course through hundreds of walking and running dead while protecting three red flags hanging from a belt around our waists. The zombie's mission was to grab our flags before we crossed the finish line, thus making us one of them.

While there were many lessons learned during this event, they can be grouped into three main after action report (AAR) items.

Book Review: Dead Ever After By Charlaine Harris

Dead Ever After
(Sookie Stackhouse Series)
By Charlaine Harris


Blurb: 
There are secrets in the town of Bon Temps, ones that threaten those closest to Sookie—and could destroy her heart...

Sookie Stackhouse finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut. He and his vampires are keeping their distance…and a cold silence. And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.

Then a shocking murder rocks Bon Temps, and Sookie is arrested for the crime.

But the evidence against Sookie is weak, and she makes bail. Investigating the killing, she’ll learn that what passes for truth in Bon Temps is only a convenient lie. What passes for justice is more spilled blood. And what passes for love is never enough..

Candie's Review: 
The last few Sookie books left much to be desired as her relationship with Eric Northman started to fizzle out. This disappointed me greatly, as Eric was always my dark horse for Sookie in the series.  As time went on, I could tell where the series was headed and while I understand Charlaine’s choices for Sookie, they just didn't sit right with me.

Guest Post: Demon Possession by Kiersten Fay


Welcome Kiersten Fay to Enchantress of Books!!

Things I try to avoid when developing a story.

Some topics and plots are easy to fall back on when writing. Why do you suppose we have so many detective shows on television right now? Because they are easy to write—carbon copies of each other, practically. Romance has its own set of pit-falls. A.k.a., anything on Lifetime. Although, I must admit, Lifetime is stepping it up a notch, lately.

About the Author

Although I have always enjoyed writing, the dream to become a writer came when I read A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare, in the sixth grade. My early works, not published, were in the form of children's stories I would read to my two daughters. I divide my days between the real world and the ones I've created. My life and my characters keep me very busy in my Mid-Western scene, where I live with my husband, and my children (both human and furry).

Viviana's Review: 
I had forgotten how much I enjoy a good historical, western romance! I missed my sexy cowboys! "Big Sky Blue" is a lovely novella that grabs a hold of you and doesn't let go! Hank Cole is a responsible, handsome and wonderful father who must now raise his son on his own. Elisabeth is an independent and smart woman who doesn't fit in well in her native Virginia high society, because, well, like I said, she's smart and independent.

Viviana's Review:
This book came home with me from the RT Convention (May 2013). The cover was catching as it's different from the covers that are currently out there. Flip the book over and the blurb tugs at your heart. This book landed on my TBR Mountain (which of course you know its literally the size of a mountain so this wasn't going to land on the top of the list) and the "Giveaway Shelf". So when I grabbed it off the shelf for a giveaway I was holding on my FB Page (What? Did you miss it? Oh, sorry Love! No worries, more giveaways to come as well as here) I didn't think anything off it. Since I usually pose a question for people to comment so they are entered, I began to flip through the book to find something to ask. I landed on a page and began to read. Read some more. Then caught myself and flipped through the pages again and landed on another... Intriguing! After two more times of doing this, I decided 'I Must Read This Book'! I did! That very night!
