Lying in Shadows (Event Horizon, #1) by Sofia Grey

I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review

Book publishes Feb 24.

Pre-order: Amazon

Synopsis:

Marianne needs to find who’s leaking secrets from her company, before they lose another major contract. What she doesn’t need is an affair with her married boss. Even worse, to fall in love with him.

She discovers the security leak is more than a case of commercial espionage: someone is lying in the shadows, playing games with them. Now more than her heart and career are at stake–her life is on the line.

My Thoughts:

This is a brand new series from one of my fav authors. I was super excited to read this one, I love rock stars books. This one was more in the mystery/thriller category and was overall a bit creepy. It put you on your toes as the suspense of the situations unfolded.
I absolutely loved the start of the book and AJ or Alex the rock star was SOOO good and hot as hell. Come to mama, oh yeah. His story was very good, 6 stars good and I wish this book was about him. I was at the start thinking this was going to be his love story but that seem to be in the next book and I can hardly wait to read that one. I know that will be right up my ally. I loved his background and the way his mind worked, he is a very interesting and likable character.
This book was set between 2 different stories that intertwined and meet up in the end. As I said, AJ story was my dream book sadly the other story was not. It started out good, but the more I got to know the persons in it I liked them less and less. They lied, cheated and I was not on board with their love story at all. The characters were well thought out and complex, they were more like real life ppl and did not follow the traditional book norm. They had flaws and a background and as it happens in real life you don’t get along with everyone.

I did love AJ story and I adored Sizzle, I think their book will be absolutely awesome.

Therefore give 3,5 stars rounding up to 4 as I absolutely loved Alex story line and the book was very well written.

The hunt for the perfect eye cream

*Annoneslenker*

Norwegian Kursiv/English normal

For meg er jakten nå over, jeg prøver andre øyekremer fra tid til annen men de siste 3 årene har jeg kjøpt samme øyekremen om og om igjen. Så langt er det den beste jeg har funnet og jeg har vær i gjennom en lang lang rekke  øyekremmer. Jeg vet raskt om jeg den passer til meg eller ikke da jeg fort  blir veldig hoven i øynene, reagerer ofte også allergisk.

For me the hunt is now over, I still sometimes try other new eye creams but for the last 3 years I have use the same one over and over. It is so far the best one I have tried and I have tried quite a number, my eyes usually tell me pretty fast if this cream is a good or bad idea, my eyes suddenly looks like they meet a bee or something equally nasty so puffy. The swell up and I react to them allergically.

 Her er noen av de jeg fant på badet nå, i skuffer og skaper. Har mange, mange flere jeg har prøvd opp igjennom.

I found some of the different ones I have tried here, I have many, many more I have tried but here is what I found in my bathroom closet right now.

Untitled-10

Jeg kan bruke alle disse utenom Skin Food øye kaviar kremen, mener jeg reagerte  på den. Kommer sikkert til og donnere den bort i min neste “rydde i skapet” . En kjær og svært populær avtivitet blant mine familie og venner.

I can use all these, except the skin food eye caviar one. I react to it I think.  I may donate that in my closet cleaning that is famous in my circle of family and friends.

Untitled-16

 Crème de la Mere kan jeg bruke, men den er sinsykt dyr og ikke gjør den noe spesielt heller. For den prisen forventer jeg mirakler eller ihvertfall svært godt resultater og det har ikke skjedd meg. For den prisen kommer jeg ikke til og kjøpe den igjen. Det beste med hele kremen er den lille påførings tingsen som følger med i metall som er deilig og kald på hovne øyne. Men er billigere og kjøpe seg en rule til øynene i jade. Prisen gjør også at du blir gjerring på innholdet.

The Crème de la Mere I can use, it cost a ton of money and it really don’t do anything special. For the hefty price I expect miracles to happen or at least something right.  Especially not for that price, I am not going to buy it again. The best thing about it is the appliqué thing in metal that is great to use cold on swollen eyes, but it is cheaper to buy a jade eye roller. Also the price makes you kind of save it so you use to little.

Untitled-14

Alle disse er OK, selv liker jeg strivectin best, virker som de har mere av tingene som virker i seg. Bruker jeg de hver dag blir jeg hoven i øynene så kan bare bruke de innimellom, så jeg glemmer de.

All these are OK, I preffer the strivectin myself, they are best of the bunch I think. To me it feels like they have more of the things that works in it. If I use them every day my eyes get puffy so I kind of forget to use them.

 Annonselenk: My favorite eye cream.

ASDM  double caffeine shot eye serum, så langt er dette min favoritt øyekrem, den har blitt min go to øyekrem som jeg kjøper hver gang år etter år. Må innrømmet at jeg alltid har en ektra flaske i skapet slik i tilfelle rotefelle. På meg virker denne best av de jeg har forsøkt fram til nå. Det er blitt et ganske stor antall. På meg er dette den som virker, denne gjør at øynene ikke er hovne og trøtte. Flasken er også på 30ml og ikke 15ml som er normalen. Noe jeg liker spesielt godt. Mye for pengene er alltid flott. Når du blir eldre så er en god øyekrem et must for meg, når du våkner om morgenen så ser du vanligvis ikke så fresh ut som du gjorde før og har du lagt deg sent så syntes det altså. Ikke minst  for og holde rynkene unna, noen får du uansett slik er naturen, men det er greit og han noen verktøy i skapet som hjelper deg litt på veien. Min verste fiende er hovne øye om morgenen og koffeinet i denne hjelper på dette. Har gitt den i gave til noen venninner og de ser ut til og like den like godt som jeg gjør. Nå er det slik at vi alle har forskjellig hud og kremer virker forskjellig på oss alle. ASDM har parabenfrie produkter som ikke er testet på dyr. 

Så det var mine øyekrem erfaringer, håper du likte det.

Ha en flott dag.

ASDM  double caffeine shot eye serum:This is my absolute favorite when it comes to eye creams, it have become my go to cream year after year. It works, it makes my eyes not be puffy and it is 30ml normal eye creams are 15 ml. so double size of normal to a great price. When you get older the eye cream is extra important or it is like that for me anyway, to keep the puffy tiered eye look away and also the wrinkles. When you hit a sudden age and you wake up in the morning you don’t really look fresh as you used to anymore, I love the extra help the caffeine this one gives me .  I have given this as a gift to a few friends and they seem to like it as much as I do. I have never had an allergic reaction towards it and it is paraben free and not tested on animals.

Hope(less) (Judgement of the Six Book 1) by Melissa Haag

HopelessFree on Kindle

 

Book provided by author for an hones review.

Synopsis:
Our world is being judged and we remain unaware.

In a world filled with people, Gabby is uniquely alone. The tiny glowing sparks filling her mind that represent the people around her, confirm it as does the bizarre inexplicable draw she has on men.

Struggling to find an explanation for her sight while dodging unwanted male attention, Gabby meets Sam. The chance encounter leads to a startling revelation – werewolves are real.

Hoping the existence of something so extraordinary might lead to the answers she is seeking, Gabby enters into a hidden society where fur is optional. There she meets Clay, the werewolf delusional enough to think he has a chance with her. Gabby’s plans for her future do not include a mate, but rather college, career, and then a huge ‘we’ll see’.

Gabby leaves the furry hidden society behind when she moves off to college, but trouble has a way of following and finding her. When other werewolves start stalking her, and anomalies in the sparks she sees begin to appear, she must count on Clay’s help or risk losing the chance to find the answers she searches for.

My Thought:
This is a new take on the shifter/werewolf lore, the world building comes on gradually and it real different from anything else I have read so far. The book sucked me in from the first page and had my attention until the last sentence.

We meet Gabby from an early age and follow her until she is 18, most of the book take place when she is 18. But we get a good bit of back ground information on her any get to know her very well any why she is like she is. I really liked that, Gabby is a very interesting character, she has her own mind and is not a pushover. She has grown up in different foster homes and has lost everyone she loved and do not let people get close to here ever. She knows what she wants to do in life and getting mated to a werewolf is so not on that list. Gabby has some special supernatural powers too and we try to find out the “use” for them during this book. That is part of the journey.

Clay is a lone wolf so to speak, grown up in the woods and have not been in society much. We get to know him thru Gabby in this book, he is her silent rock that sneaks into her hear and pitch up a tent there. He is really quite smart and does it the only was Gabby would let him into her life. He is silent in most of the book and only starts taking at the end, but it sort of works for me.
There are also some other interesting characters in this book, Sam the “werewolf grandfather figure” and Rachel the flat mate and friend. I like the unique world this author has made, it is different from anything I have read before. It is not often I see that, the words flow easily and it is written in a catchy way that sucks me in. This author can really write, the book is not perfect but it is real good. I stay up reading to 3.30 in the middle of the night so that says it all really.

This is labeled a New Adult book, there are young people in it but I did not get that teensy angst feeling. The people acted more like adults, it was no sex in this book if that is what you like. But that was OK with me because this book caught my attention while I read it and gave me a good story and that is what I want from a book.
A fair warning is the cliffhanger ending, thankfully the next book in this series is out and I am going to read it right away. I think this author has made it into the list off authors I am following to see if they will do interesting stuff.

I give this book 4,5 stars. I can recommend it to UF and werewolf lovers. I would put this book in the UF category.

Sorg og om det å miste noen som står deg nær.

Thought we this one, one more time.

De sier at tid leger alle sår, men det gjør faktisk ikke det. Enkelt sår og sorger er så store at de går aldri bort, de blir mindre skarpe med tiden men gjør fortsatt vondt.

25 februar var det 21 år siden jeg misten noen som sto meg nær, helt plutselig og uten forvarsel. Han jeg mistet var forloveden min som jeg hadde kjent hele livet. Vi hadde vokst opp sammen og familiene våre var venner. Hadde aldri sett for meg at vi skulle bli kjærester eller at vi skulle miste deg. Du var frisk, trente og hadde nettopp vært i Garden. Ingen kan se hjertefeil, det er usynlig for øyet og sjokket var derfor stort den natten du forlot denne verdenen.

Fortsette alene etterpå er tungt, det føltes som jeg hadde misten halve meg å måtte bygges opp på nytt stein på stein. De første 6 måndene levde jeg i en boble hvor ingen ting trenge…

Book Review:Close Remembrance (The Krinar 3) by Anna Zaires

 

Krinkar 3

Ebook on Amazon here

 

I was given an ARC of this book by the author for an honest review.

Synopsis:

The stunning conclusion to the critically acclaimed series that has won thousands of fans!

When a ruthless enemy finally strikes, Mia and Korum will face the biggest test of their relationship yet. But it’s Korum’s own secrets that may ultimately tear them apart.

From the beaches of Costa Rica to a planet in a distant galaxy, theirs is a love story that may change the world . . .

Warning: This book contains strong sexual content and explicit language and is not suitable for readers under 18

My Thoughts:

This is the third and last book about Mia and Korum and what a wonderful end to it too.
Mia has grown so much in this series, she has bloomed from a shy uncertain virgin to a strong female that knows how to get her way. In this last book she really comes into her own and takes charge of things around her and her life and relationship with Korum. The wishy washy girl is banished for good. I absolutely loved it.

Korum what can I say. My relationship with him during the books has not been a good one, to say I would love to hit him over the head with my iron skillet would be pretty accurate if I also could do it repeatedly. He has been controlling, forcing himself on Mia and over all nasty. But in this book he redeems himself. The Korum PVO we get in this book is awesome, applause to the author for doing it. It clears up so much and to understand his side off things is wonderful. I absolutely loved that he was ashamed off his early behavior that make the book for me it really did.

I absolutely love this world Anna Zaires has made for us in the K books. I am a super huge fan of all the geniuses inventions that are in the books and there were even more nice tidbits off them in this one. I am in awe of the authors mind that has come up with all this stuff it is brilliant. This book also took us to the K home world and what a beautiful world it was. I could just picture it in my mind as the writer painted it for me. The end of the book was truly awesome and it was pretty much perfect end to Mia and Korums story.

I think this quote sums it up nicely:
“He’s not going to flip out again, is he?” Jessie sounded scared.
“What? No, of course not,” Mia said automatically.
“Uh-huh,” Jessie said doubtfully.
“He won’t,” Mia said with confidence, looking directly at Korum. She knew perfectly well that he could hear her.
He stared back at her. His eyes still had those dangerous golden flecks in them, but one corner of his mouth tilted up, a ghost of a smile stealing across his face. Mia continued looking at him, her own eyes narrowed, and the smile became a full-blown grin, transforming his features from merely gorgeous to out-of-this-world sexy. Then he turned away and continued speaking to Edgar, as though nothing had happened.
“Holy shit,” Jessie breathed her eyes huge. “You did it! Mia, you f***ing did it…”
“Did what?”
“You tamed a K.”
― Anna Zaires, Close Remembrance

I am looking forward to reading more about this universe, it will be with new people and hopefully they will be just as captivating.

Book Review: Close Obsession (The Krinar 2) by Anna Zaires

krinkar 2

Here on Amazon

** spoiler alert **

Book provided by author for review.

Synopsis:
The highly anticipated sequel to Close Liaisons . . .

In Lenkarda – the main Krinar colony on Earth – Mia is completely at Korum’s mercy. With no way to leave and no idea how to operate even the most basic Krinar technology, she has no choice but to trust the K who brought her there – the lover whom she had betrayed.

Will he keep his promise to bring her home, or is she destined to be his prisoner forever? Can a human become a part of Krinar society? Does Korum love her, or does he only wish to possess her?

Read on to find out . . .

WARNING: This book contains strong sexual content and explicit language and is not suitable for readers under 18.

My Thoughts:

This book starts right in where the first book leaved off. I had some trouble getting into the first book and gave it 3 stars but this I came right into and it was soooo good, could not put it down staying up all night reading good. The words came alive on the pages and I was sucked right into the wonderful world in Lenkarda with all the weird wonderful Krinkar technology that I so hope was in this book and it sure was, beyond my wildest dream. I absolutely loved all the wonderful Star Trek things that Start trek never invented that this author had thought of. (They should hire her for the next movie, just a thought.) I am in awe of Anna Zaires fantasy and want to pitch up a tent and have a nice holiday in her brain for a couple of weeks to get a close up on her wonderful thought proses, this is a brain worth picking in my goodness for a wonderful fantasy she has.
I absolutely loved the house she had made up and all the wonderful little technology things in it, I want one right now. Especially one with that intelligent matrass to sleep on and the cleaning the dishes part, I like to cook but after a long day I would like that tidbit to. I was like a happy child jumping up and down in glee about all this and the door things and the wonderful clever house idea. By mostly I would donate on of my nicer body parts to get that permanent migraine cure pill thing, I want one like yesterday!!! My hubby said I should call my Doc and say I wanted that new cure I read about, I just had to forget to tell WHERE I read it. (Sniggering to myself.)

I still have problems with Korum`s controlling, high handed behavior, but at the end of the book I like him a little more and have to say he has his moments even if he is mostly an ass. Mia one the other hand was amazing and I love her back bone, yay! You go girl, finally putting your foot down and telling him where the closet is.

I loved the plot in this book and I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next book in this series, I think we have to send the author some energy pills so she gets it finished super-fast. I am going to grab a copy of it hot out of the press, burning my fingers hot, lining up in the waiting line right now.

If you haven’t already guess it, I loved this book and I give it 5 stars.

Book is English only available in Ebook, paperback and Audible.

The Fashion Industry’s Future: Unknown

I had to reblog this one, I found it very interesting.
The designers are artists too, so that the laws are so different are mindboggling really.

The Luxe Lookbook

Pretty soon, we may see some significant changes in the fashion show format. I previously covered that several designers announced their test runs of a see now, buy now format. And now the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has also decided to seriously consider a reformatting of the seasonal New York Fashion Weeks currently taking place in September and February.

CFDA Courtesy of CFDA

After failed efforts to get Congress to pass the Design Piracy and Prohibition Act to protect the work of designers, the CFDA has decided to take a different route to address not only the impacts of fast fashion, but also the growing gap between high fashion business tactics and consumer practices.

The organization has hired Boston Consulting Group to perform an in-depth analysis over the course of approximately six weeks. At the conclusion, they will provide CFDA with a recommendation for a long term way…
