This was my first book I've read by Claire Thompson and it won't be my last. I been wanting to read her books for awhile but haven't got the chance to until now. I am very happy to have finally read a book by this author. Slave Academy was a very fast read for me cause I couldn't put the book down till I finished reading it. I found myself glued to this book not wanting to sleep or take breaks from reading this book.

I definitely look forward to reading more books by Claire Thompson. She is an excellent writer and knows how to keep her readers glued to the stories she writes.

Tantalize by Cynthia Leiti Smith
Tantalize

Linda Hinckley, March 31, 2012

Tantalize By: Cynthia Leitich Smith. At first I was confused while reading this book but as I kept reading it I understood it more. This was a really good read. Got to love a good Vampire/Werewolf story. This story had lots of action to it & twist & turns in it. Just shows some times you can't trust those who you thought you could even a family member or one who you start to have feelings for.

Quincie, a young vampire who has become very mature for her age since her parents death. She has fallen in love with Kieren who is a werewolf to only find out from his mother that he has to leave soon for his wolf pack.

Quincie works at the family restaurant with her Uncle D who are now looking for a new chef since the one who was working with them has been killed. A new chef has been hired name Bradley.

Bradley & Quincie is doing a lot of work together at the family restaurant since her Uncle D is spending more time with his girlfriend. Quincie starts to have feelings for Bradley since he is the one who has been there for her and is making her feel good and special. Since she knows her boyfriend Kieren has to leave and she will be left alone with out him.

Is Bradley to be trusted? Does Quincie fall in love with Bradley & let Kieren go? To find out more you must get this book. It was an excellent read.

Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman by JB Lynn
Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman

Linda Hinckley, March 31, 2012

This book is definitely a laugh out loud read. JB Lynn has a great sense of humor and I would love to see this book turn out as a series. I want to read more about Maggie & Patrick.

Maggie is a strong character. I loved her and her smart comments. Maggie is willing to do what ever it takes to make sure her niece Katie gets the best care while she is in a coma.Maggie, Katie & her parents were in a car accident. Katie's parent didn't make it and now Katie is in a coma and Maggie is doing all she can to make sure her niece wakes up and gets the best care she needs.

Maggie has met a guy named Patrick who is a cop but is willing to train her to do the best she can to be a hit woman to get the money she needs to take care of her niece. Maggie is also taking care of her niece's lizard Godzilla who prefers to be called GOD and only will eat live crickets.

Patrick and Maggie has been spending alot of time together while he trains her to do and know all she needs to so she can do her first hit job. It's not fun for Maggie since Patrick has two wives but she is catching feelings for him.

This is an awesome book. Loved the characters, the talking lizard and Maggie's aunts who are known as three witches. This was a fast reading with lots of funny moments on each page. I couldn't stop laughing as I was reading this book and I sure did not want to sleep or take any breaks away from this story.

Does Maggie get to save her niece? Will Patrick and Maggie become lovers? To find out more you must get this book. You won't be disappointed if you get this book trust me.

JB Lynn sure has a great sense of humor and knows how to put it in a story that will have readers wanting more and loving her characters. I hope this book turns to be a series. I want the story to continue with Maggie and the talking lizard. Even hopes of her and Patrick. They are just to cute together.
