Review: September by Audrey Carlan

Review: September by Audrey Carlan

September (Calendar Girl #9) by Audrey Carlan Rating: 3 stars Blurb: Vegas, Viscous Exes, and Ventilators. My life felt like a fast ride on a too short highway. Coming home should be roses and rainbows, but nothing that comes out of the desert blooms free. I was most certainly not free. I’d missed my payment to Blaine, owed the last client a hundred grand I didn’t have, and my father was on his deathbed. To make matters worse, Wes was missing in action. As in, no one had seen or heard from him in three weeks. Devastation didn’t begin to… Read more »

Review: June by Audrey Carlan

Review: June by Audrey Carlan

June (Calendar Girl #6) by Audrey Carlan Rating: 3 stars Blurb: Politics, phallic statues, and pretty women. Literally everywhere you look, you see an old man and a gold-digging cling-on wrapped around their wrinkly arms. Luck had not gone my way when Warren Shipley, one of the nation’s wealthiest men hired me to play arm-candy in order to save face with the other one percenters he did business with. At least that’s what I thought when I arrived in Washington, DC, until I was met by old man Shipley’s debonair and insanely handsome son. Aaron Shipley was notably the youngest… Read more »

Will they inspire him to change or will he convince them to give him a second chance? ~~~ Shhh… Listen To The Gods. The Japanese believe the gods live in all things. Trees, appliances, animals, buildings — they all have a spirit living within them. Maybe, if you listen carefully, you can hear them too. My Review: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review… Read more »

Review: The Masked Maiden by H.D. Gordon

The Masked Maiden (The Aria Fae Series #2) by H.D. Gordon Blurb; HERO OR VILLAIN? YOU DECIDE. When she decided to become a vigilante, no one told 17-year-old Aria Fae about the possibility of public backlash, or the attention the media would garner by dubbing her The Masked Maiden of Grant City. On top of this added heat, a rogue supernatural known as The Scarecrow has escaped his prison, and his history with Aria makes her the crazed warlock’s obvious target.
