HEY GUYS, I AM HERE WITH MY REVIEW OF BOOKS 2 & 3 OF THE LIVING ART SERIES BY RIVER MITCHELL! LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT I THOUGHT OF THESE BOOKS!
I AM USING THIS QUOTE FOR BOTH OF MY REVIEWS BECAUSE IT FITS BOTH STORIES SO WELL! HERE IS MY REVIEW OF BOOK 2: SHARPENING HIS BROKEN TALON!
Sharpening His Broken Talon
Living Art 2
by: River Mitchell
reviewed by: Becky
They say that opposites attract and never have those words been truer for Tate and Talon.
Tate, always the life and soul of any party thought he'd reached his peak and that life couldn’t get any better. He had his dream job, an amazing family, a roof over his head and chocolate donuts in his belly. He'd achieved the goals he'd set for himself and couldn't think of anything else he could possible want.
Talon, has spent most of his life trapped in a whirlwind of pain and self-loathing fighting his debilitating memories of the past. Unable to use his voice to communicate he feels lost, alone, and in constant fear of embarrassing those who support and love him.
With Tate's zest for life and Talon's enormous heart, falling in love would be easy. But to reach their happily ever after they are forced to travel a road filled with uncertainty, pain, loss, fear and not a small amount of outside interruption.
You will smile, laugh, cry and shout but ultimately you will understand that sometimes two people are just meant to be.
This book is a true testament to River Mitchell's talent, there is so much going on in this story it would have been really easy for it to become muddled and confusing, but it didn't!
Talon feels broken, he doesn't speak due to the horrors of his past, and you will understand why as you read the story. Talon is due for something good in his life when in walks Tate!
These two men shouldn't work but oh they do, and you will love them as a couple! Things begin to happen that will shock you and test what these two men feel for each other, but never fear, Talon and Tate are strong and will fight tooth and nail to get through the hardships together!
I do have to say there are some shockers in this book toward the end and you will need to read book 3 pretty fast or you will go nuts :P! I love these stories and you will too!
the 5 microphone rating!
I HAVE THE BEST REASON FOR THIS RATING! GRAB THIS BOOK AND FIND OUT WHY!
NOW FOR MY REVIEW OF BOOK 3: UNLOCKING HIS SHUTTER, AND I MUST SAY, THIS BOOK IS MY FAVE OF THE SERIES SO FAR!
Unlocking His Shutter
Living Art 3
by: River Mitchell
reviewed by: Becky
Shutter, a man shrouding in darkness, leads a solitary life. One he is content with, until he witness’s his nephew, Fear, fall in love. Shutter sees what life could be like if he follows the light and opens his heart.
Drake, a man with a mysterious past, has been accepted into a family that helps him escape the nightmares of his childhood.
Together they face every obstacle and with the help of a loving, yet crazy family, they are forced to walk through hell to get to the future they both deserve.
It’s not an easy journey to their happily ever after but once there, both men know it was worth every single step.
As I said this book is my fave, and it is because Shutter is a character I wanted to know much more about since I first read about him!
The book opens with Shutter, a man whose name is linked with violence, rescues people in Fears Tattoo shop, one of which he wants to know more about. Due to his reputation, Shutter can't stick around, but thankfully his story comes to light and Shutter gets closure on a lot of open books in his life.
Drake has a dark past that comes to light in the worst way possible, but with his family and Shutter by his side, he can overcome anything!
This book answers some of our burning questions, but leaves the door open for book 4 to answer more, which I love! Thanks River, for a great series to date, and I can't wait to see what you come up with for the next book!
the 5 Deadpool Rating!
I DID THIS RATING IN HONOR OF A VERY IMPORTANT PERSONS COSTUME! YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN WHEN YOU READ THE BOOK!

HELLO GUYS, I AM SUPER EXCITED TO BRING YOU MY REVIEW OF COACH'S CHALLENGE, BOOK 3 IN THE CAYUGA COUGARS SERIES BY V.L. LOCEY! AS YOU KNOW I AM A HUGE FAN OF THIS AUTHOR AND THIS SERIES (AND MY VIC OF COURSE) SO LET'S SEE WHAT I THOUGHT OF THIS ONE!!
BOY DOES THIS QUOTE FIT THIS STORY! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Cayuga Cougars 3
by: V.L. Locey
reviewed by: Becky
Victor Kalinski and his husband, Dan Arou, are living the dream. Married for over a year now, the couple have settled into life in Cayuga surrounded by friends, family, and a team that’s poised to make another championship run. Each man is enjoying professional success as well as personal bliss. Who knew life in the suburbs with a spouse and a child could be so darn satisfying? Not Vic. K, that’s for sure.
The happy times are about to turn rough, though. The Cougars have picked up a new player, Sander March, a brash young center whose sass, skill, and attitude can rival Victor’s. When it’s revealed that this new player and Dan have history, tensions begin to rise between the newlyweds.
As Victor and Dan work on those issues, the one person Victor never thought he would meet arrives in the small New York hamlet and proceeds to flip everything in Vic’s life upside down. Can Victor and Dan’s marriage withstand what life is about to drop on it, or will the challenges be too much for them to handle?
I was beyond excited for this installment of the Cayuga Cougars series, I mean it is about Vic and Dan, who isn't excited? It lived up to my expectations and more!
Dan and Vic have been enjoying wedded bliss, and they can't imagine anything throwing a wrench in their lives together, but oh boy do they encounter a whole toolbox in this one!
Parts of both of their pasts come to light and come too close for comfort as far as Vic's concerned! Can Vic work through his feelings without closing out the person closest to him?
You will get the classic Kalinski snark in a healthy does in this one, and I love it! You will devour this book just like I did so grab it now, it is the perfect addition to this amazing series!
the 5 'Mike Furry' rating!! :P
HAHA NOPE THAT IS NOT A RATING TYPO, READ THE BOOK AND FIND OUT WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!

HELLO FRIENDS, I HAVE A TREAT FOR YOU TODAY! THE HOLIDAYS MAY BE OVER, BUT THERE ARE STILL A TON OF GREAT BOOKS TO READ! BELOW ARE MY GIRLS AMY AND JESSICA KENNEDY'S REVIEW OF THREE BOOKS FROM THE 2017 DREAMSPINNER ADVENT CALENDAR: STOCKING STUFFERS! ENJOY THE REVIEWS OF WRECK THE HALLS, PINING FOR PERFECT, AND HOMEMADE FROM THE HEART AND GRAB THESE BOOKS TODAY!
WRECK THE HALLS: BY: JESSICA PAYSEUR
This short Christmas book has been fun to read. Paul owns a cafe and lives above it, Nick opens a restaurant beside Paul’s and moved into the apartment above it. Two places to eat beside each other does not bode well between the two owners.
Their antics of trying to one up each other, the anger of losing customers, the workers caught between the fighting and then there is the electricity snapping between Paul and Nick. Will one of them go too far? Can they forgive and finally slide between the sheets?
I give this book 4.5 stars or 4.5 Fried cheese curd (you must read it to find out why!)
GRAB THIS BOOK FRIENDS, NOW IS AMY'S REVIEW OF PINING FOR PERFECT BY KI BRIGHTLY!
This short holiday story was a nice little read! Asher is a DJ and goes over and beyond trying to pass the Christmas cheer and to help others, especially those kids who live in foster care. He’s been there before and knows how that feels.
Stokely loves listening to Asher on the radio except when the Christmas Caroles are played all the time. Stokely grew up with foster families and the experience was not a good one. Christmas is nothing to celebrate
Each will have to put their insecurities behind them and move forward to be together. Can Stokely love Christmas as much as Asher, maybe with the right person he can
I give this book 4 stars or 4 shaving mirrors!!
SOUNDS GREAT RIGHT? GRAB IT ABOVE! LET'S CHECK OUT THE FINAL BOOK IN OUR 3 BOOK REVIEW POST RIGHT NOW!

HEY GUYS, I AM SO EXITED FOR THIS NEXT HOLIDAY BOOK REVIEW BLITZ POST! BELOW IS MY RELEASE DAY REVIEW OF A SNOWY BALL, WHEN SKIES HAVE FALLEN 1.5 BY DEBBIE McGOWAN!! YAY! HOW EXCITING THAT WE GET TO CATCH UP WITH ARTY AND JIM!
THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS STORY, AND BOY IS IT TRUE! BELOW IS MY REVIEW:
A Snowy Ball
When Skies Have Fallen 1.5
by: Debbie Mcgowan
reviewed by: Becky
Published: 19th December, 2017
Length: 14,000 words (63 pages) approx.
London: December, 1981. A White Christmas is on the cards, but as the temperature drops, the pressure on Arty mounts. He's got far too much planned in the coming days to have it all buried under a mountain of snow.
Between his retirement surprise for Jim and the Christmas party at the dance school, Arty might need to curtail his daydreaming a little to ensure everything comes together. Still, if all else fails, at least he and Jim have each other to keep them warm through the impending blizzard.
Note: this story follows on from When Skies Have Fallen and as such contains spoilers for anyone who has not read the novel.
I am over the moon to be able to catch up with Arty and Jim and all of their loved ones, a Holiday book about these two was a total surprise and oh so amazing!
Arty and Jim have grown older and settled into their lives together, when the story starts they are about to celebrate Jim's retirement, and another surprise Arty has up his sleeve!
We follow these two as they celebrate the season and their love for each other, and this is a Holiday read that you don't want to miss if you have read the LAMMY award winning When Skies Have Fallen!
the 5 cat on a stove rating :P
THIS RATING IS RELEVANT, TRUST ME! :p I REALLY HOPE YOU PICK UP THIS BOOK FROM THE LINK BELOW! I WILL POST THE LINK TO WHEN SKIES HAVE FALLEN ALSO, ( THAT ONE IS FREE!)

HEY GUYS! TODAY I AM HERE WITH MY REVIEW OF SUCCUMBING TO HIS FEAR: THE LIVING ART SERIES BOOK 1 BY RIVER MITCHELL! I FREAKING LOVE THIS SERIES AND I CAN'T WAIT TO BRING YOU MY REVIEWS OF ALL THREE BOOK IN THIS SERIES SO FAR! LET'S TAKE A LOOK:
OH BOY DOES THIS QUOTE APPLIES TO BOTH FEAR AND ALFIE! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Succumbing To His Fear
The Living Art Series #1
by: River Mitchell
reviewed by: Becky
A life-changing event leaves Alfie the guardian to two children; it also becomes the catalyst that leads him to discover that everything he thought he knows about himself is catastrophically wrong.
All it took was a chance meeting and a drunken night to turn his world upside down.
Fear wasn’t looking for anyone, content to stick with his monotonous routine of one-night stands and random hook-ups. He purposely keeps everyone but his family at arm’s length, never wanting an outsider to get to close. But when Alfie and his adopted children come crashing into his life, all Fear’s rules are quickly forgotten.
While the two men struggle with all aspects of their life and budding relationship, the arrival of an unknown element determined to destroy them and their newfound happiness throws everything in to turmoil.
Will they survive the whirlwind of devastation or will they crumble under the weight left in its wake?
It is really rare that I have a book speak to me on as many levels as this one did, and man did I enjoy every second of it!
Alfie has had his life turned upside down and his head is still spinning when he runs into a group of guys that have a tattoo parlor, one of them really turns him on, but that will never happen right?
Fear can't get Alfie out of his head and all he wants to do is help him, (well maybe not ALL he wants to do :P) but will Alfie let him? What happens when their world is flipped upside down? Will the feelings these two have for each other be enough to weather the storm?
The supporting cast in these books are amazing and you will laugh at Alfie and his mom so many times you will lose count! Grab this book right now, and get started on a journey you won't want to end!
the 5 nugget rating :P
HAHA! I DID THIS RATING IN HONOR OF TWO LITTLE PEOPLE YOU WILL LOVE INSTANTLY JUST LIKE I DID! GRAB SUCCUMBING TO HIS FEAR BELOW AND SEE WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!

This is a very sweet story of the 'meet cute' of Ethan and Ty. Brought together unknowingly by their sister and Mom, they meet on Christmas Eve Eve at the mall of all places. After hours at the bar and pizza, bad movies and some make out time, what's next? With it Christmas Eve and Day, how can they work around their already crazy schedule to see each other again? Why, it's a meet the folks on Christmas, of course!
Even with it being a short novella, this book made me fall for Ethan and Ty. They are both sweet and very loveable and I hope we get to see more of them in the future. Hint hint Louisa!!

HEY GUYS, IT IS DAY 9 OF OUR HOLIDAY BOOK REVIEW BLITZ, AND TODAY AMY IS BRINGING US HER RELEASE DAY REVIEW OF HOLESHOT CHRISTMAS BY LYNN MICHAELS! LET'S TAKE A LOOK!
THIS QUOTE IS SO TRUE! HERE IS AMY'S REVIEW!
by: Lynn Michaels
reviewed by: Amy
Christmas isn’t all race tracks and dirt bikes for Davey and Tyler, especially when they don’t see things about each other in quite the same way.
I am so happy to have read this book! I love Davey and Tyler, so I was stoked to see a holiday book this year!!!
Davey and Tyler are now married and getting ready to celebrate Christmas together. But first they are away to scout new talent for their race team. Insecurities and jealousy crash into this happy couple even when they both know how much love is between them.
Through the holidays we see Davey and Tyler struggle with the thought of not being good enough, each for different reasons. They really need to talk and work on communication to get through this rough patch.
Make sure you grab this one December 1st for a fun with moments of sexy and serious talks for this holiday season!!
I give this book 5 stars or more festive 5 Superman Jammies! You’ll see why when you read A Holeshot Christmas!!
HAHA I LOVE THIS RATING! IF YOU ARE A FAN OF THIS SERIES LIKE AMY AND I ARE, THEN YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK! GRAB IT BELOW
THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR DAY 9, AND THANKS AMY, FOR THE TERRIFIC REVIEW! SEE YOU TOMORROW FOR DAY 10!
