Emery keeps meeting a man with wings and dying in weird ways. But he won’t stay dead, which for the junior reaper is a problem. The reaper’s boss, Administrator Dagmar, tells him the discrepancy must be resolved. What a premise! Throw in a few demons, the end of the world, a magical younger sister and the story becomes a three-sixty roller coaster ride.
This story as a comedy is hilarious, I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s a unique and refreshing paranormal quickie. Carole’s writing reminds me of the great Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams … which in my book is amazing praise. Don’t expect the story to make any sense. It just flows from one ridiculous scene to the next.This is at best a YA romance. The sexual tension between Emery and the reaper, John / Sam, is obvious from the beginning but the dialogue remains at a flirty level. The scenes flip from Emery perspective to John / Sam's perspective. For me, it didn’t matter that there weren’t any sexual scenes, nothing explicit beyond a hand on a knee at the end of the story! The beginning's surreal with Emery waking up in a morgue and doesn’t disappoint all the way through to the last word.
The words will carry you on a silly and unbelievable ride. You have to read Don't Fear the Reaper!
When Lorena finds The Castle, which specializes in Virtual Reality adventures to any time era, she and her friend jump at the chance to play. When they walk through the open door to 1969's London, it's apparent they've walked into more than just a game...
This is such an amazing story. The best time-travel story I’ve ever read! Time traveling back to 1969 under the pretense of a virtual reality experience provides these two women in their sixties another chance at love. Sherry returns at a time to take a chance she didn't take with Jeremy on the tube. They shared one kiss together and that has been her biggest regret.
Lorena, goes back with Sherry to London, however she returns home. While home she decides to spend time with her deceased husband Dave in California. They both take chances that, they didn't the first time around and really enjoy life to the fullest. What they didn't realize is that this virtual reality game is no game at all. I can't explain the twist because it'll give too much of the plot away but it is fabulous! I thought the idea and story is fresh, new and exciting. Both Sherry and Lorena have amazing stories. I must say I am shocked at how everything turns out. I’m glad that they are able to step back in time and go after what is important to them!
The author does an amazing job writing this story with such an interesting take on time-travel and virtual reality, making this a five star read!

Title: Celery, Sex and other Good Things for the Heart (The Harders Book 2)
Author: Kellie Kamryn
Length: Novella -- 65 pgs
Genres:Romance, Romantic Comedy, Erotica, Contemporary
TBR Reviewer: Jean

Heat: 5 - Orgasmic
Co-workers Miranda and Dan have a thing for each other but have never admitted it, opting for a daily exchange of raunchy sexual exploits as told to them by Dan's best friend Sam and Miranda's sister Missy. When they discover that it's Sam and Missy having all the fun, there's no stopping their workplace-gone-wild affair, especially with Miranda throwing down the kinky gauntlet and daring Dan to pick it up.
Where this book is thin on plot, it's overweight on bedroom action. Celery may be good for your heart but in this story its not for the faint of heart. Those with a curious streak and a high tolerance level for explicit sex will have found a new diet plan in author Kamryn's ribald regimen for good health. A good read, not to exceed the recommended daily dosage!

To go where no erotic fantasy novel has gone before...the realm of comedy!
Mariah Smith, aka "The Judge," is a sword-wielding, potion-packing vigilante who metes out justice with evil spells rather than a gavel. She's a member of the magical Vizzini family, so as expected, they are engaged in a blood feud with another powerful clan, the Dragos. In a plot as old and familiar as Romeo & Juliet, complications arise when Mariah's would-be target, famous super-hunk Fabian, a member of the Dragos, becomes her lover instead of her enemy.
Add in shapeshifting demons, Latin incantations, ancient artifacts, an express elevator to Hell, and we have a bewildering brew of non-stop, occasionally non-sensical action with unexpected and interesting twists and turns. Sex and romance are almost an afterthought in this fast-paced storyline that has everything but the proverbial kitchen sink thrown in. That said, I always have a soft spot for smart-ass heroines and Mariah is not only smart-ass but bad-ass, too. Same goes for heroes, like Fabian, who start out unlikeable but are redeemed somewhere along the way and become heroes in the end. You just know they were meant for each other!
The comedic voice in which it is written is the real star of this story, which starts out brilliantly in Mariah's recap of her life and how she came to be The Judge. I enjoyed many laugh-out-loud moments. From there it dips into the ridiculous at times, but soars to heights of satiric humor at others. The extreme spectrum of vocabulary used is quite something all on its own. Kudos to author Gail Kroger for being unafraid to push the envelope!
