Sidekick Showcase [53] Awesome Father Types! I'm tapping Odd Thomas for this one.

Sidekick Showcase is a weekly meme created by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven to celebrate those awesome side characters who deserve a bit of the limelight too! Each week or sometimes month, Jaclyn offers up a topic/challenge and it's up to us to cast our favorite side character. You can get nutty with it, find an actor who fits the image you have in your head, post quotes, make your own drawing. So snag the graphic, share your pick, and link up on the Linky Link. Happy reading, folks!

Willem Dafoe
I'm diving into a read that was way outside the norm for me, Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. Odd is an amazing character. From the beginning he slipped into my heart and he's still there. Thing is, he shouldn't be so cool, so kind or caring because his life is crazy. He sees stuff that would make anyone run for the hills screaming and bawling their eyes out. But he was graced with a set of people equally amazing. One of them being Chief Porter. Since Odd's real dad is a total asshole and his mom is perhaps the worst mother in any book I've ever read, Chief takes on a father role in Odd's life. The two trust and respect each other. They believe in fighting for the innocents of the world. There are times Chief seems like he would love nothing more than to adopt Odd and offer him sanctuary from all the ugly in the world that won't leave Odd alone. My favorite thing about Chief is that he always believes in Odd. My version of Chief Porter is more like some aging cowboy, you know with the large barrel chest, long legs, and deep wrinkles that speak of equal parts joy and anguish. The movie version cast Willem Dafoe, a skinny, sharp faced man who plays the devil better than anyone, at least in my mind he does because I don't know that I've seen a movie where he plays the devil. I'm sure Mr. Dafoe can convince me he's the mega cool fatherly Chief Porter.

COYER Summer Vacation! Let's see if I manage more than 2 books this time!

You all have seen the COYER posts in the past, clean out your ereader, well, I sucked so bad last time. I think I read 2 books and bought the sequels to both! The rules have changed and we have from now until September 5th. I'm sure I can do better this time around. Since we can pretty much read whatever we want, ebook or paperback, I'm going with contest wins. The genres are all over the place, so we'll see what strikes my fancy. We'll also see how much I get done. I had this fantasy for the summer that I'd become a morning person, wake up with the sun, write a little, read a little, exercise too. No matter how quiet I am, the boys wake up exactly 30 minutes after me. I haven't dreamed up a new fantasy, er, productivity fantasy that is, but there is always time for a good book.

How about you? Are you participating in any reading challenges this summer? This one is pretty fun with a bunch of readathons, prizes, and a couple twitter parties. Click HERE (or the fun graphic) to check it out.

If weren't for the gore, I'd swear Ilona Andrews took me on a magical fairy ride! On the Edge Review

5 STARS for On the Edge by Ilona Andrews! I took forever with this one only because I started it on a family trip. This isn't a family trip read. It's a tell your kids to fend for themselves so you can lose yourself in this other world read. I think Jack and Georgie stole the show in this one, but Declan and Rose and their slow burn was magic to watch.

Rose lives her life for her two little brothers, Jack and Georgie. Works herself to the bone just to feed and clothe them. And it's not easy in the in-between world they live in. Declan is a mysterious stranger who tempts Rose into daydreams about a different life. She can't afford daydreams with a new dark magic on the loose threatening to consume everything and everyone she loves.

The world building sucked me in and held on tight. I'm not much of a fantasy reader, but everything from the magic use to the shifters were so creatively rendered, I can't wait to read the next book in the series. The tension between Rose and Declan was awesome. The constant threat of a terrible death made my heart race. The kids stole my heart. The grandma was the perfect grandma. And I loved that even the good guys gave me pause. I was giddy over the underlying romance in the story because I'm a total romance girl, but family love stood out more than anything else.

If you haven't read anything by Ilona Andrews (imagine me blinking at you in complete surprise), get on it. You'll get lost in the characters, drama, even the gore is entrancing.

Oh, and next month I'm releasing Soul Twister, the 3rd installment in the Touched Girls Series. If you're interested in participating in the July blog tour, maybe checking out the first couple books, drop me a line, or sign up HERE.

I'm fangirling out this weekend at the Emerald City Author Event!

I have my backpack, some pent up need to buy books, and a girls' weekend all planned out. I'm taking a break from the kiddos (first time for me) and heading to Seattle (uh, that's only 50 minutes away, but kiddos). Brandee Bookworm sent me a link about this event a while back and we got giddy with the idea of having a book blogger girl weekend. Last time I went to a book event I was so overwhelmed I didn't buy a single book. I blame it on the fact that I went as a newbie author. This time the author hat exists solely in the business cards I promised my mom I would bring with me. I'll be offline for a few days because I am not a fancy cell phone girl and my computer is staying home. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Oh hey, wait! One last thing. Sign ups for the Soul Twister Blog Tour are happening right now!! If you're interested in YA/NA paranormal romance with a unique protagonist, check out my Touched Girl series. I'd be happy to send you review copies of Soul Walker, Soul Bender, and the upcoming Soul Twister.

Soul Twister Blog Tour Sign Up Time!!

Sign Up Today for the Soul Twister Blog Tour

We are celebrating the release of Soul Twister (A Touched Girl Novel #3) by Robyn Jones. Sign up today for the blog tour running from July 21st - July 25th.

Soul Walker (A Touched Girl Novel #1) by Robyn Jones

Published: December 9, 2012
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Goodreads Summary: 

"I need to get you to the hospital." He was taking responsibility for me. Only my parents had that job. I stretched my hand out in protest, but the lack of depth perception had my trembling fingers grazing his overheated neck. I swore his whole body shook.

When five-year-old Anna Pierce is offered a chance to have nightmare-free nights for the small price of her voice, she jumps at it. Silence has to be better than all-consuming dreams about blood and death and fangy monsters. The bargain she strikes comes with a secondary benefit, visions of a person's future potential. The combination of visions and silence changes her very nature and soon she's diagnosed with autism. Twelve years of living in her head comes to a screeching halt the moment Peter Davis pulls her out of an icy river.

Her new life has her twirling, tiptoeing, and crashing through unfamiliar territory, one filled with a cranky grandma, a knocked up cousin, an unpleasant cousin, a bunch of mostly good vampires, and the boy who rescued her.

To top it all off, the deal she made at five is no more. Anna is expected to talk, to figure out her resurfacing nightmares, and to control her ever-growing powers. And she'd better get it done soon because if the good vamps want a piece of a living, breathing Touched girl, the evil ones simply want. They'll take Anna for their very own.

Soul Walker is the first book in the Touched Girl Series. It's approximately 91,000 words.

Soul Bender (A Touched Girl Novel #2) by Robyn Jones

Published: March 11, 2013
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Goodreads Summary:

How much can a soul take before it breaks?

Anna Pierce has a vampire boyfriend, a driver's license, real friends for the first time since she was five, and now she faces one of her biggest challenges, senior year at a mostly all girls Catholic high school. Sure, she's a member of the talking crowd now, but she'll never be like everyone else. How can she when the first of her kind has camped out in her dreams?

Little dead girl Emily decides Anna's destiny can wait no longer. It's time for this generation's Touched girl to hunt. Trained in a virtual dream landscape to destroy all in her path, Anna must choose between her destiny, the one beat into her on a nightly basis, and her legacy, the one instilled in her by her parents.

Along the way, old enemies remain dutifully obsessed, new foes lurk in the shadows, and odd Little Duckie Anna Pierce sets out to be social.

Soul Twister (A Touched Girl Novel #3) by Robyn Jones

Published: Expected Publication - 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Goodreads Summary:

Months into recovering from the bloody events that took place in Soul Bender, Anna Pierce is ready to get back out there and fulfill her self-crafted destiny. Sadly, no one in her life feels the same way. The emergence of buried memories and out-of-the-blue powers send her straight into regular sessions with the school counselor. If only she could talk about her overly protective vampire boyfriend or the real threat posed by former friends turned enemies or her new guide who makes her former guide look like a bowl of sunshine. Anna has a lot going on, but at least she's too busy to think about her first Christmas at Ella's.

Sidekick Showcase [52] LGBT Pride!!

Sidekick Showcase is a weekly meme created by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven to celebrate those awesome side characters who deserve a bit of the limelight too! Each week or sometimes month Jaclyn offers up a topic/challenge and it's up to us to cast our favorite side character. You can get nutty with it, find an actor who fits the image in your head, post quotes, make your own drawing. So snag the graphic, share your pick, and link up on the Linky Link. Happy reading, folks!

For the month of June there are a lot of topic options. Father's Day, summertime awesomeness, LGBT pride. I'm going with LGBT pride. I recently read and fell in love with the book Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. Holy cow, I love it! Start to finish I felt lucky, like Aristotle chose me to share his world with, because Ari is plain cool. One of the things that makes him so cool is that when he meets oddball Dante, he sees straight to what matters, that Dante is pure goodness. Dante is fifteen, honest to a fault, hates wearing shoes, loves and likes his parents, and is the closest friend Ari has ever had. 

He was funny and focused and fierce. I mean the guy could be fierce. And there wasn’t anything mean about him. I didn’t understand how you could live in a mean world and not have any of that meanness rub off on you. How could a guy live without some meanness? Dante became one more mystery in a universe full of mysteries.
Benjamin Alire Sáenz (2012-02-21T08:00:00+00:00). Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (Kindle Locations 266-269). Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. Kindle Edition. 

Okay, I kind of derailed on my mission to find quotes and almost started reading the book again. It is that wonderful. Dante is light to Ari's darkness and the two find each other and form a true friendship right at the point in childhood when hardness can so easily settle in for the long haul.

Rock Chick Renegade Fangirl Time! Duel Review with Brandee Bookworm!!

5 STARS!! It's Rock Chick time. I thought I was a goner with Hank in the last story. Heck, I even crushed on Roxie. But Kristen Ashley wrote Rock Chick Renegade staring gritty and slightly broken Vance and closed off, balls-to-the-wall Jules. Holy crap! These two are so lost in the world. Vance has turned his life around but nothing has challenged him to believe he could have something more than a place to sleep at night and bad guys to track down. Jules has always been passionate fighting other peoples' battles, but when it comes to fighting for something for herself, the girl locks it down tight. She takes this fighting trend too far and messes with the wrong people. Insert protective Alpha Vance bossing around kick ass Jules and you have another great buddy read with my awesome friend Brandee Bookworm. As is tradition, we fangirled via email and here's our fun chat.

(rob) I'm loving Jules and Vance.

(Brandee) I have to go get kids up in a few but here are my thoughts so far on Vance & Jules...

I can't believe Vance managed to find the perfect woman for him!! I love Jules so much. I can see some of a younger me in her. She's tough and idealistic - it's probably the idealism that I relate to. :) And she has no idea of her appeal. I think her personality and not knowing she's a looker make a great combination.

Vance - he's just as much alpha as the rest of the boys but there's something different about him. There's something that makes his alpha-ness seem understated. Do you feel that way? It's weird because he's super bossy and all but I don't know...I think I'd let him tell me what do to, too. His Vance tractor-beam works outside the book, at least on me. I'm drawn to him and don't want to put him down. 

(rob) I don't relate to Jules almost at all which makes me love her even more than Roxie! I love her relationship with Nick and the guys who train her for the streets. I have cracked up so much in this book! I love Nick's morgue face. I love the hideaway bed. I can just see her making her whole place just right. And she does the stone cold face. I telegraph every single thing I'm thinking and feeling! I hate that. Enough Jules love. 

VANCE! He's dreamy for sure, but you're so right about his alpha-ness feeling understated. He's a thinker. And to me he's more vulnerable than the previous alphas. He wants Jules so much but he doesn't want to hold on so tight he crushes her. It's funny, but it's the fastest relationship in the series so far and yet it feels like such a slow build between them. I'm totally loving Renege even though I miss the music references and Tex and mom interfering, but there is a lot of Daisy and May rocks. I loved the whole bit about the cake. 

Is Hank still your favorite? Because Luke is available and flirty!

Another thing about Vance that's different...he's the first of the Hot Boy Brigade that is broken. He didn't live a 'charmed' life with a loving family. None of the other alphas, so far, have had a past like his. And this pulls Jules that much more towards him.

Oh, I'm loving Nick too. When he walked into Jules' house and found her and Vance? Classic. Also, that talk he had with her about not jacking with Vance. Also classic. I can't imagine a dad having a conversation like that but I love the relationship between Jules and Nick.

I want to be a head-crackin' mamma jamma! *ha* That cracks me up. Only a head-crackin' mamma jamma could be with a badass mother like Vance!

Denver men are men, indeed. What IS it with these guys hitting on their friends' women?!? Not that I'd be oppposed to Luke flirting with me. *fans self* I laughed...laughed over the kiss and how it felt pretty good but not Vance good. Sheesh! The guys have skills...MAD SKILLS! Next year Robyn, we're going on the hunt for a Denver man for YOU!

"Are you a badass motherfucker?" Oh my gosh!! That scene in Fortnum's had me crying I was laughing so hard! Tex is a riot! And I love him. He may not have been as present in this one (so far) but he steals every scene he's in.

Okay, I have a theory - which you kinda blew with your comment about not identifying with Jules - but I want to run it by you anyway. I think the universal appeal of Rock Chick is that there is something in every one of these chicks that we identify with...something we are, something we do, something we wish we did. I mean, I'm not like Indy AT ALL but there are certain things about her that I admire and wish were a part of me. What do you think? I think the same kinda goes for the men. There are things about each one of them that resonates...some more strongly than others. 

I adore Vance! I'm still a Hank girl but there's just something about Vance...

Oh, and I loved Duke's comment about Luke finding a woman one day and lord help us all! That was hysterical!

So, something you didn't know about me...before I began my illustrious career as a technical writer, I was going to go to grad school for a masters in social work. When I first started college, I wanted to go to law school and specialize in family law. That's where I identify with Jules. :) 

*Back to Rock Chick!*

Can I just say HOLY SHIT! Luke may be a man of few words but when he does speak...holy shit!!

Yep! Luke makes me dizzy and not Hank dizzy either. I have no idea what Luke is going to do or say. His book is going to be exhausting! You're right about Vance being the first broken Hot Boy Brigade (I was going to say Rock Boy). 

I do want to be like Indy, Jet, Daisy, Roxxie, and Jules. I admire them for different reasons. They are just such neat women. And the hot boys, heck, I love their code. Eddie was a little too physically pushy for me, but Jet liked him that way. Lee was a little too arrogant for me even though they're all arrogant, but Indy needs cocky. hehe. It's a math formula, a really hot and funny formula! 

I'm so there about finding me a Denver man! I laughed so hard at that. But I'm not sure I'm cut out for riding on the back of a motorcycle. I have 2 embarrassing tales. I still wince when I think about one of them, the other one makes me shriek and shake my head.

Hey, if you haven't bought all the Rock Chicks yet...most of them are on sale right now on Amazon!!

I'm finished...let me know when you are so we can discuss... :) I don't want to spoil anything for you.

I finished today too! I freaking loved it so much! I can't wait for Luke and Ava. I'm madly in love with Jules. I just love how tough she always is no matter what is going on in her head. I love that Vance can see her wheels spinning. Do you have a favorite scene? I'm partial to the date with Vance when Jules beat up the bitchy former lay and then the strip club scene. I think Shirleen (sp?) and Luke were the standout side characters this book. 

Did you miss the music in this one? I did a little, but the action was so great it was a good trade-off.

Me too. LOVED it!! It was a little grittier than the previous ones, didn't you think? I mean, I know Roxie was roughed up but...damn. Maybe it was because we were actually witness to Vance's reaction? Where we didn't see how Hank reacted? I don't know but I was tense and teary, I tell ya!

Jules really is a head-crackin' mamma jamma!! And I adore her! She's incredibly selfless...and just so dang perfect for Vance. *sigh* Yeah, Vance really did have her number, didn't he? 

Hmm, favorite scene...I'll have to think about that but I certainly did like the scene at dinner with Jules and Vance. And the strip club scene was even better! Smithie's reaction was awesome! *snickers* I still really like the scene at Fortnum's on Jules' birthday when Tex was letting her and Vance cut in line. Luke and Shirleen were DEFINITE standouts. Holy... But I have to say I did fall a little bit in love with Duke in this one, too.

Oh and BOO!!! I keep meaning to talk about Boo! Why am I such a sucker for animals?!? I loved that Jules was so close with her cat. *ha* Their conversations are hilarious and Jules translating what Boo's saying to her and to Vance...yeah, good thing Vance didn't speak 'kitty'. I really liked that Boo was a clumsy cat...that cracked me up!

Woohoo for the witch being...well, not dead but no longer employed at Nightingale Investigations. I hope we get a peek at that video sometime. I'm not gonna miss Dawn one bit.

Okay, I know I have more to say but I'm exhausted. So I'll sleep on it and we'll talk more tomorrow. Robyn - I'm SO FREAKING HAPPY we're doing this buddy read.

I've been a zombie since we started this one! Every Rock Chick turns me into a night owl even though I make all these declarations that I'm going to bed early, turning a new leaf, working on my bad attitude that I believe more sleep will magically cure. 

Duke was a standout too. Each book he contributes in these small-huge ways. I laughed a lot in this one. I also got teary. I mean, I'm rooting for Vance to have this wonderful love that Jules can share with him, but she has all these walls up and he doesn't knock them down. He waits for her. 

This one was grittier for sure. The runaway kids added a whole different element, a sort of detached love. Jules had their number like Vance had hers. She didn't pass out affection and big smiles. She was tough and always there. I loved how she never quit telling them to stop swearing. I missed Hank. We got a dose of Lee and a lot of Luke, but Hank was barely there. 

You're a sucker for pets in stories. That makes me smile. I loved that Boo was clumsy because I tell you what when a cat misses a landing I completely lose it. Just typing this makes me laugh at the possible falls. I'm mean like that. 

I think all the Rock Chicks should have a strip class at Smithies and Daisy should arrange it and then all the guys find out belatedly. What fangirl scene would you like to see thrown in? 

Oh, I am so freaking happy that we're buddy reading this series too!

Okay - my favorite scene...if I were going to go for funny, I think I'd choose the scene at Smithie's where Jules handles one bitchy skank OR Fortnum's on Jules' birthday. BUT I'm feeling sappy (I'll blame it on hormones) so I'm going to choose the scene between Vance and Jules - the moonlight conversation where Vance tells her what it takes for him...what makes him happy. *sigh*

As for a fangirl scene...I'd LOVE to see your scene with Daisy teaching the girls how to strip. But since you took that one ;) I'm gonna say I'd like to see (ooh, this is gonna sound mean) but I'd like to see one of the guys react, in person, to one of the other guys putting moves on their girl. Does that make me mean?? *ha*

I'm looking forward to Luke's story but I'm gonna just put this out there...Ava better be one incredible woman because Luke deserves no less.

My final thoughts: I adored Jules and Vance's story. This one really did have a different feel because Jules is one head-crackin' mamma jamma. She DOES know how to take care of herself and can get herself through most situations. And Vance, our first 'broken' alpha, melted my heart. (and panties) I'm still a Hank girl but Vance, for now, is my #2 guy. I enjoyed getting time with some of my favorite side characters though, even if I would have loved more time, especially with Tex. And I did miss the music...there were some references, but music didn't have as big a role in this one. Oh, and I'm looking forward to learning more about Hector. ;)

So, when is Rock Chick #5 up???

When life's kicking your butt, how about a theme song? [6] Summer Time!

Every summer when I was a kid, my mom sent us off to visit my grandma in Iowa. We went from an ocean view at every turn and unending sweltering heat to farmland and unending sweltering heat. And I loved it! I loved the rocky drives through the country. I loved the family reunions and constant stream of cousins and card games. The noise was the best, or maybe the smells. Not sure, but summer is magic to me. So here are a couple songs that make me think of the sun and chlorine water, the snobby lifeguards and endless bag of potato chips old ladies always have in their kitchens. I'm cheating this month because I'm picking two songs. 
John Mellencamp's Jack & Diane
Nena's 99 Red Balloons

I'll add my mom and sister's picks when they take a breather from creating an insanely beautiful garden.

Oh, and what do you think of the graphic for the theme song posts? Pretty cool, huh. Our very own Jaclyn Canada at JC's Book Haven created the image.

J.A. Huss Time! Marathon review of Slack, Bomb, and Guns!

I've fallen hard for J.A. Huss. Here's a marathon review of Slack, Bomb, and Guns.

4.5 STARS for Slack by J.A. Huss. Huss rocks the planet with riveting characters, sizzling men, and scorching scenes. The angst is never over the top for me, and somehow reaches deep enough to pull out emotions I fight tooth and nail not to surrender so easily. Ford Aston is one of the most arrogant (yet lovable) characters I've come across. He's brilliant (and knows it). He's rich (and doesn't give a shit). And he's controlling (in bed-yikes). We first meet Ford in the Rook and Ronin series. He falls hard for Rook. Instead of taking advantage of her the way he so effortlessly could, he pushes her away. But it's not such an easy feat. So in the mad quest to cleanse his palette, he continues to have impersonal sexual relationships and carry on with life as usual. But then bring on the holidays and a sort of friend in need. Said friend tasks Ford with a mission that should be cake. A chance encounter from an unlikely person changes everything for him. Slack is a wonderful story that sets up Ford's story, Taut, perfectly (though I read the stories out of order, but I've learned my lesson, honest). 

5 STARS for Bomb by J.A. Huss. Spencer is a flirty, arty, motorcycle riding hottie. He's the muscle when it comes to the dangerous and scheming trio of Ronin, Ford, and Spencer. Like Ford, we meet Spencer in the Rook and Ronin series. He paints pictures on girls. Not tats, but hardcore living photorealism. He's intense and madly in love with Ronnie (who is a ball of crazy when we first meet her). Going into Bomb all you know is that Ronnie is a wild thing. Spencer is a slut, okay, that's harsh. But you get the idea he's a slut because he acts like he's about to rip your panties off with his teeth. Lastly, you know Spence and Ronnie were once an item. Bomb gives us the moment he falls hard for her, which happens to be the second he sees her. I jumped right into Spencer's story, Guns, the minute I finished Bomb. And holy cow Guns was an awesome ride. Ronnie is crazy, but the good kind of crazy. Wait, one review at a time. If you haven't ready anything by J.A. Huss, what? Get on it!  

4.5 STARS for Guns by J.A. Huss. End of the road time! Guns is the final installment of the steamy and exciting Rook and Ronin universe (hopefully that is not entirely true). Spencer and Ronnie are doomed. Seriously, this is the most dysfunctional relationship ever. I had no idea how this story was going to go. You have these criminals who did things that hurt people, but said criminals are the characters we've grown to love. Ronin, Ford, and Spencer did some shady things. Part of me felt convictions for any one of them would be fair and just, but the fairytale part of me (that dominates all my thinking), wanted sandy beaches and umbrella drinks for the rest of their lives. I wanted them to have happy love stories and babies (if they wanted them). But Guns doesn't have the happy ending vibe. 

Past mistakes have forced Spencer to push the love of his life out of his life. He wants her safe and he'll sacrifice his own happiness to protect her. He's so good at pushing Ronnie away that she believes all the crap he dishes out. It takes her a while, but she finally realizes she's too good to be treated like dirt. I love that. I love Ronnie's path to independence. You can't always help who you love, but you can help how you love them. Ronnie isn't as wild as she was in the snapshot scenes from previous Rook and Ronin installments. Spencer's tunnel vision drove me nuts at times. He couldn't see the big picture and lacked all faith that Ronnie could do more than act as a damsel in distress. I bet if he'd just confided in her from the very beginning, the pair could have powered through the mess together. Still, Huss threw me curve balls left and right. I guessed over and over what was going to happen and I was always wrong! I'm hooked on J.A. Huss. If you're a fan of hot and steamy NA, or hot and steamy adult romance, or ... hot and steamy chick lit, what else can I throw in there? Just check out this series, okay.

A couple things!

My Theme Song post for June is on its way. The theme will be...SUMMER! Whatever song makes you think of summer time, of playing in the sun and water, of all the wonderful smells from BBQ's to diesel trucks and cut grass. Summer!!! Now I have to find a song.

My sign up post for the Soul Twister Blog Tour is coming this week. The tour is from July 21st-July 25th. If anyone is interested in starting the series, I'm happy to provide you with ebook copies of Soul Walker and Soul Bender.

Have a fantastic week!
