LUC (In The Age Of Copies) by Kimball Lee

Dr. Henley Carr has dedicated her meteoric career to creating the first truly sentient Copy. With his genius grade DNA, organic+computer assisted brain and hyper-enhanced body; he’s designed to be the ultimate SuperMan. But young, ambitious Dr. Carr has been hiding an important detail from the defense corporation funding her project and from the world. She’s expanded her work with her new LUC prototype by introducing organic, Original Species hormones into his system. He’s suddenly becoming more Original than Copy, more man than she ever expected. He is thinking, calculating, evolving and FEELING! When she’s forced to abort the project and terminate Luc, she realizes she’s stumbled onto something much more explosive than a highly refined Lethal Ultimate Commando. She’s stumbled on to the means to create a species superior to Originals in every way, a species that could eradicate and replace every Original in existence, and to make matters worse, she’s fallen in love with him along the way.

"A mind-blowing glance into a future dystopia."

"At first I doubted Kimball Lee's ability to create a believable science fiction world. I figured it would just be a cheesy romance, but man was I wrong! LUC is brilliant!" - Amazon Reviewer

"With this beautifully crafted and highly conceptual work, author Kimball Lee proves her ability to be passionately diverse and shows us exactly why all of her books remain on the Kindle Best Seller lists." -GPI

LUC: Book Two, coming Summer 2014.

I found this book as a free run on Amazon. Currently you can get it free as well.

I ranked it at 4 of 5 stars

LUC is an interesting concept about a future possibility. Luc is the epitome of a woman's wet dream and Henley sounds like an attractive woman. Due to her experiments and attachments they get into trouble escaping. I don't care for the sudden stop and I'm not a big fan of cutting off a book to make another when it could just continue. But it is a good read and it draws readers in. Looking forward to the next.

Never Say No o a Caffarelli by Melanie Milburne

"I play by the rules, but they're my rules." Poppy Silverton is as untouched as the leafy English village where she runs a tearoom. But her home, her livelihood and her innocence are under threat....
Rafe Caffarelli is a mouthwatering specimen of Mediterranean manhood. He's a playboy billionaire and determined to buy Poppy's historic dower house.
Poppy will not give up the only thing that remains of her childhood and family. She'll fight Rafe--and her attraction to him--all the way. And be the first woman to say "no" to a Caffarelli!

I recieved Never Say No to a Caffarelli as a prize in a contest. You can purchase it for $3.82 on Amazon.

I rated it 4 of 5 stars

Rafe is a very confident yet arrogant business man that knows what he wants and feels that everyone has a price when it comes to getting what he wants. Poppy is a stubborn woman that is determined to keep her home despite the large amount of money Rafe offers her. When he fails to pay her off Rafe goes to the small town to try in person. It's instant attraction but Poppy is determined to fight her feelings. Slowly they get to know more about each other and the inevitable happens. The only real issue I had was it seemed like Poppy was constantly trying to cause problems by bringing up his past lovers. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to reading what happens to his brothers.

The Valentine Monster Written and Illustrated by Cassidy Castle

Razzle lives in the snowy mountains above the town of Heartsworth, and her favorite day of the year is Valentine's Day. Usually she celebrates the day all by herself, but this year, she decides to visit the town and find friends to help her celebrate. Who will befriend this little monster that loves Valentine's Day?

This fully illustrated children's book is perfect for ages 4-8.

I found this book as a free run on Amazon. You can now purchase it for $.99

I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

The book is very cute and will draw the attention of most children it does have a few flaws. The story is very rushed. It needs a bit more detail in it; yes-even Children’s Books need detail. And the text and picture are on separate pages, people read the text then see the picture. It would be a better read if they were on the same page.
But there is a great point to the story and the children are very sweet. I am interested in reading more of Ms. Castle’s work.

A Snowball's Chance (Enhanced Edition) By Cherry Adair

Snowball's Chance Enhanced (A Short Story) 
Originally Published 2005 

Cherry Adair New York Times bestselling author gives the gift that keeps on giving: a gripping tale of special agents in a covert agency, out to protect the innocent . . . by any means necessary. 

Kendall decks the halls, unaware that a serial killer has her on the top of his list. Of course, being naughty with the sexy good guy sent to protect her would be so nice.

I bought this book in Amazon for $2.99. You can still purchase for that price.

I rated it 4 out of 5 stars

Kendall is a spunky woman that has fought to overcome her fear of attack after she helped put away the man that tried to kill her. Joe is a tall drink of water hired to protect Kendall when her would-be killer escapes prison and comes for her.
I'm not a fan of instant love but Cherry puts a whole new spin on it that makes it very enjoyable. Plenty of sass, action and yummy bedroom…err mostly, scenes to keep the story rolling. I hated that it ended so quick but I would read it again in a heartbeat. I did enjoy that the enhanced addition includes character profiles, inspiration pictures and an interview in the back. Makes it so worth the extra dollar for the book.

The Malthus Conspiracy by Danielle Uldam

In 2011 the world population hit seven billion. Fourteen thousand babies are born every hour. By 2045 the population is predicted to hit nine billion. Can our planet cope?

In 1798 Economist Reverend Thomas Malthus thought not. His work 'An Essay on the Principal of Population' predicted that population growth would outpace our ability to obtain resources, resulting in a global epidemic of famine that would destroy society unless curbed.

Fast forward to 2012. College students Dean Adams and his best friend Felix Pye, unwittingly stumble across the greatest conspiracy in history, and by doing so sign a death warrant. They are forced to run as powerful, high society members of a 200 year old secret Malthusian League attempt to silence them.

The league will stop at nothing to continue its Malthusian cause. Their purpose? To curb population growth and ensure Malthus' predictions for economic ruin do not come true.

With the aide of detective Isabella Mercena, Dean and Felix go head to head against the evil forces as they attempt to expose the league's sinister plans to control population. Will they survive to tell the tale and tell it before the next wave of disaster is unleashed on mankind?

I recieved The Malthus Conspiracy as a read and review. You can purchase it on Amazon for $3.99.

I rated it at 3 of 5 stars

The Malthus Conspiracy is an interesting read. It's not my cup of tea but I gave it a chance. For me the plot is good and very well developed. The characters are relate-able and readers can get caught up in getting to know their stories. The book it's self did seem to be overly full of unnecessary detail and it tended to drag the book. I did put the book down a few times and read something else but I went back to it in the end.

Henry The Beck Brothers Series by Andria Large

Henry Beck, the gorgeous CEO of an advertising company, was in need of a new personal assistant. He expected HR to hire someone older, more experienced, maybe even with gray hair. Who he got instead was the beautiful, young, single mother - Claire Russell. A woman who he is having a hard time keeping his eyes off of...

Claire never expected her new boss to be the most gorgeous man she's ever laid eyes on. She also never expected him to be sweet to her two year old son, Ethan. But Henry is her boss and there is no future with him. Or so Claire thinks...

Will Henry and Claire be able to fight the obvious attraction between them? Will Henry's overbearing mother come between them? Or will a freak accident change their perspectives on life and what's most important...

I found this book through one of several Free Download newsletters I recieve. You can now purchase it on Amazon for $1.99.

I rated it at 4 of 5 stars

Henry's book is the first of the series I've read and I enjoyed it. I like that even though the book was short there wasn't a rush for the couple to get together and that there was time for development. I do like that the author described Claire as a normal sized woman. The brothers being brought in was done in a detailed way, they didn't just show up and it was the same with Henry's parents. I do like that Sebastian was a semi-important character as his is next in the series. I do think that some extra time looking over for spelling and grammatical errors was needed but they were easy to overlook as the the plot flowed.
