Order of the Dimensions by Irene Helenowski

No Rating

Heat Rating n/a

I was given Order of the Dimensions for and honest review by Irene Helenowski

Jane is a graduate student working on a dimensional gateway at Madison State University and has made herself a dimensional leap frog. As she leaps from dimension to dimension she discovers a conspiracy ran by Dr. Anton Zelov who is apparently her husband in a few of those dimensions. Now she and some of her colleagues are apparently in a race to retrieve the Order of Dimensions and prevent it from landing in the bad guy’s hands.

When I was asked to read Order of the Dimensions, I had decided to check it out carefully because I don’t usually read much sci-fi (except Star Trek and a few erotic romance) even though I love watching sci-fi. When I went to Amazon and checked out the preview that they allow us to read I was able to get into those beginning snippet and agreed to give it ago in reading for the review. Now that I am 21% into this book I am not so into it and I am sorry for that as it is well written up to the point I have gotten so edits don’t seem to be an issue in the complete reading of this book. I am getting motion sick from the dimensional jumps and constant change in dynamics leading me to the opinion that this story just isn’t for me and needs a reader that is a sci-fi reader and will truly get into and enjoy this book. Giving this book a rating seems very unfair since I only read 21% of it and it is going into the “I could not get into list” so no rating will be given and I hope the author much success for her series with those who will appreciate and enjoy reading it.

Book Cover Rating
I had a difficult time judging this cover in a positive way and asked the artistic members of my family for their opinions only to discover their opinions were even more critical and the consensus was this cover is lazy and uninspired because of the lack of thought.

Unyielding Surrender (Montana Double Riders #2) by Elle Saint James

Heat Rating

Gabriel is driving home when he finds a beautiful woman, Suzanna, stranded on the side of the road. He over’s her assistance by calling a tow truck. As they wait for the tow truck Gabriel’s would be stalker comes driving up the road to him kissing Suzanna. Together they explain to the determined Cindy that they are seeing each other making it clear that Gabriel is off the market.

When Suzanna and Gabriel can’t find her a place to stay, he takes her to where he works where he has her wait in the bar while he talks his boss into letting her stay there. While waiting for Gabriel she meets Nathan whom she also feels a strong attraction, so when she discovers that they are best friends that share absolutely everything including women she is excited and eager to spend time with them. Pity it can only be for a short time since her own stalker is hot on her trail and she needs to get as far away as she can.

I read Unbridled Temptation, the first book in the series, and was a little excited to get into the next book but I wasn’t nearly as impressed with this book as I was with the first one. I feel there could have been more to the story line because the stalker was not nearly as big a threat as he could have been even with all the steamy hot sex scenes floating around. I saw more of Cindy making Gabriel irritated then I did the threat to Suzanna. Granted Nathan’s fantasy sex in the blacksmiths shop was entertaining and the bedroom and shower scenes were rockin’ but those weren’t the only things going on in the story. And the only sign that Suzanna’s stalker is in town is what he does to her car while it is in the shop, and doesn’t even take place until closer to the end of the book. Sex scenes are great but more about the actual story line would make this book much better.

A Normal Girl by Angora Shade

I was given A Normal Girl for an honest review by Angora Shade

Heat Rating
Giving the heat rating was hard because there was definitely sex but not what I am into so for heat or turn on factor I would have to say one rating but for the fact there was actual sex I would give it a rating just for there actually being sex scenes.

Firsts things first, Angora, I apologize for taking way longer than you expected and thank you for your understanding.

Virgin techno geek, Ryan, is shy and with his lack of experience with women he finds himself in a series of sexual encounters that leave him with experience that he probably wishes he could forget or not.

I got through about 55% (give or take) of A Normal Girl before I said enough is enough. Firstly, I want to say that I have ready several books about control and BDSM and in every single one there was a lot about safe consensual play. So where was that when Ryan was getting his ass spanked in the bakery by a crazy psycho bimbo bitch control freak. I didn’t see any discussions about what she was going to do or any thoughts to his feelings. Add to that I am so not into spanking guys. Secondly, we really have to discuss this cat costume fetish, I mean really and with an attached dildo, now don’t get me wrong I have no issue with a little (or a lot) of guy on guy action as it can be hot and I could see how a guy might like a little dildo action but the cat costume was really over the top and again not my thing. I know that some people are into this kind of sex and for them this will be a perfect book that they will rate pretty high but for myself it left me cold and unfulfilled in all categories so I am sorry for my ratings especially after making Angora wait so long for this review. The only really good thing I can say about this book was that I didn’t find any editing errors and the blurb pretty much describes the book.

Book Cover Rating
The cover is kind of boring and really doesn’t say much about the book.

Mostly matches the story

The Glass Beacon by John Day

Heat Rating1/2

Karl Strom is a brilliant engineer whose family is hedging their bets by having a foot in each door in order to survive the war with their wealth. Which is why he is working on the German side creating a beacon that is undetectable except by the bombs they are intended to direct to targets.

Karl’s mission is to go home to England with a team of four trained operatives to test the beacon and then train others to set them. But the minute Karl and his team set foot on English soil anything that can go wrong does with betrayal from within and without. He starts to wonder if he will survive long enough to take care of his personal mission as well.

First I need to say I know this book wasn’t on my TBR list but when John asked me to read for him I felt that I owed him because back July I was in the middle of promoting two of his other books only to have it pre-empted to my families very great tragedy and lose. So I hope you all will understand my need to read and review this book and I have every intention of writing reviews for those two books that I never got to write. SO thank you John for your wife and your friendship and understanding it has meant a great deal to me and my family.

I have been sitting here thinking about what I like most about The Glass Beacon and was beginning to think I would be able to pin point a favorite part because the whole book was an amazing read, but as I was thinking I realized that it was the way Karl/Peter interacted with his sister. I think if there is anyone that the master spy loved more than that two timing hoochi Helga, who doesn’t deserve him, it would be his sister. But then given how he banged Anna I don’t see him and Helga lasting for life. I saw some marked improvement in how John wrote his bedroom scenes as well as they were tastefully done and definitely not clinical and one or two had me wanting to read them to my husband because I am positive he would love how they were written as well. The ending was epic and if I could elaborate more I would but unfortunately I would be giving away the ending but know this John Day I will be sending you and email about that ;) As for rating I would love to give The Glass Beacon a 5-star rating but the edits I find though minimal were still enough to dock a star from the rating which sucks given how great this book was.
