Love All Book Review

Kelly Hashway proves that she cannot only write excellent YA zombie, necromancer, sci-fi books, but also love themes in Love All.  Hashway blends love and sports in this three part series.

Meg Flannigan is a tennis player in committed relationship with her boyfriend Asher.  He’s a great boyfriend and on the verge of saying the “L” word.  Days before the start of her senior year ianother boy on her tennis team, Noah, takes notice of her.  She’s had a crush on him for two years.  He starts sending her mixed signals and she’s starts to wonder if he’s interested in more than just being friends.  She can’t help herself and keeps hanging out with Noah and the next thing she knows her relationship is on the line. 

Meg is truly conflicted and you find yourself empathizing with her. This is a very quick read, and the best part is all three parts are to be released this year so you won’t have to wait too long to see what happens next. I give this book five out of five donuts. 

Its on sale for only $1.29 until Valentine's Day so make sure you buy it before go back to regular price.

Born of Blood (Palmetto Moon #1) Book Review

Born of Blood, by Sherry D. Ficklin isn’t just your average vampire book.  Ficklin manages to write a love story, action, and plenty of sarcasm in this first edition of the Palmetto Moon series.

Sophie D’Angelo is a private investigator who is living with a vampire in her attic who happens to be her ex-fiancĂ©.  In this reality vampires live in the open among the undead.  Caleb, her ex-fiancĂ©, was turned into a vampire the night before their wedding and he’s been living as her friend in her attic ever since.   He’s also her partner at her PI business, Palmetto Moon.  She is contracted to find a missing person and she quickly finds out things are not as they seem.

This was a fun, quick read and a lot of Ms. Ficklin’s personality comes out in this book.  The plot is fast moving, the characters are all well developed and likable and it wasn't predictable.  I loved this book and can’t wait to read the next edition.  Luckily I’ve been selected to get an ARC (Advanced Read Copy) so I’ll be posting that review soon.  I give Born of Blood five out of five donuts.

Born of blood is available on Amazon or Barnes and Noble for on $3.99
