With a life full of wrong choices and a growing list of women used and thrown to the side, Branson King seems to have hit rock bottom.  It doesn’t help that he’s been targeted by a dryad, Aurianna, to pay for the death of her grandmother after he crashed his car into a tree killing her.   Aurianna has been shunned by the other dryads, and in order to earn her place back with them, she must kill Branson.  After the two meet, it seems that the heart has something else in store for them.  Can they turn their back on the spark that they feel and go against everybody and everything that they are told or believe?

 

There is a lot of information that is given in the beginning of the book and I struggled for a little bit trying to figure out what was going on.  I stuck with it and then wasn’t able to stop reading once it started making sense.  If you take the time to get through the rough start, it’s worth reading.

Buy: Mercury Striking (The Scorpius Syndrome)

Lynne Harmony has had her fair share of fear, pain, and heartache. She’s survived the Scorpius Syndrome only to come out with a glowing blue heart and has been imprisoned, poked and prodded and threatened. The world, at least those that have survived, has gone into survival mode. Shoot first ask questions later and they aren’t about to trust anyone, not even the woman with the blue heart who may just be the only hope the world has left at fighting the disease that destroyed civilization. Stumbling along ruin Lynne gets herself captured by Jax Mercury, the man who has become a legend. Caring for the weak and leading a small army of strong men, Jax is not a man to mess with. With a little give and take it doesn’t take long for the two to find out that they need each other to survive and with a little patience they find that there can be more than just heartache in all the mess and death. It is possible to find love.

There was never a dull moment in this action packed book. Amidst a world of chaos, the romance and chemistry jumped off the pages. I felt the raw pain when another survivor would succumb to the horrible disease. Rebecca Zanetti does an amazing job creating strong characters and a great plot that left me excited to read the next book in the series.

Sparked (The Metal Bones Series Book 1)

Sparked

Vienna Avery is intent on exposing the government’s true motive behind the creation of robots and their sudden release of their creation into the public. However, there is one thing that is stopping her, she has no idea what the motives are. She just knows they are up to no good, but it’s hard to convince the public on a hunch. To make matters worse, her own mother has bought one. Vienna’s family is now proud owners of a French cooking robot. When Vienna doesn’t think things could get any worse after taking a swing at the metal contraption, she’s taken aside by a strange man with brilliant green eyes and warned her life is in danger. Life gets even crazier when Vienna discovers that robots have emotions and are practically human in every way, even capable of feeling and showing love. It’s a secret that is worth killing over, and Vienna finds herself on the run with a very strange group of individuals that call themselves a family, but the metal inside of them says differently.

I was really excited to read this book when the cover caught my eye and then I read the summary I was even more thrilled. However, I felt like I was getting bits and pieces of the story. Some parts of the story were described in detail, where other bits were just thrown at me in jagged pictures. I really liked the story line, but when I finished the last page, I felt lost and actually had the thought, “What just happened?” I really don’t think it was a smooth reading, which I’m really disappointed because I had high expectations and hopes for this one. I’m hoping it’s just this book, because I would like to give the author another shot.
