SYNOPSIS

Valentine Morland has waited nine years to meet her scientifically determined matchmate… Now, she must marry him. #somethingblue #comingsoon#reveal #newteaser #dystopianromance #romance #valentine#myfunnyvalentine #tattoos #puzzlepieces #matchmate #blissinc #corporate#ecstasy #bliss #formulafortruelove #waiting #bookworm #booklove#bibliophile #dystopia #bookblogger #newrelease

In the city of Monopolis where happily ever after is just a scientific formula away, Valentine Morland has been waiting nine years for her day to come. Now it’s here, and she will marry the man of her dreams, a stranger to her, before being swept off to life of carefree luxury and bliss, courtesy of the Jigsaw Project. However, all is not as Valentine imagined as her new husband is quickly discovered as not the man of her dreams, but one who claims he isn’t capable of love at all. Harbouring an intense paranoia for the system, which upholds the very idealist fantasy that Valentine holds so dear, Clark threatens to throw her into a world, not of bliss, but of scary consequence where her every emotion is under scrutiny. Can it be that the scientific formula with a 99% success rate got it all wrong, or is everything in the world of Bliss Inc. more sinister than it seems?

Joanna’s Journey – Review

After reading ‘The Secret Will Out’ by Karen J Mossman in print. I looked up and found she had several other books out, and this was the latest release.

Here’s my review of this lovely heartfelt book –

Amazon review – 
There are a couple of things I really enjoyed with Karen’s writing, from the detail of the worlds she’s created, (and the facts that around that, the story was built into a local city that I visited quite often) to the depth of the characters. Each novel, has had it’s own unique and outstandingly natural storyline. They’re almost so believable that you’d mistake her for your flawed best friend, who can be both amazing and yet stupid and frustrating all at the same time. I found her just so relatable, that of course I wanted the best for her in her love life, falling for two guys has to be the hardest thing to go through, not knowing if you’ll ever make the right decision or not.

A heartfelt journey that will make you laugh, cringe and cry with all it’s intricate character traits and plot turns. Karen is an excellent writer to follow. I’m so glad she’s almost a local lass 🙂

Blurb – 

Escaping a broken romance, Joanna runs headlong into another, and then another.

Managing two long distance relationships at the same time is complicated and made even more so when her best friend is a good looking guy who knows her better than most.

Set in the 1980s, Joanna and her sister, Sandie are two very beautiful women. After a cruel upbringing, both girls have their scars, but deal with things differently and as with most sisters, they clash.

When the unthinkable happens and Joanna’s world implodes, she finds herself alone to face what she can’t and won’t accept.

It is times like these you find out who your friends are and who you can trust, or more importantly, who you can’t.

AudioBook Review – Burning Ember V1

Wow, this is the longest AudioBook I’ve had the pleasure of listening to, and it almost took me a whole week! eek.

But, it was well worth it. If you like Sons of Anarchy and bikes, like we do. Then it’s worth it.

Pick up the book here – http://www.audible.co.uk/pd/Crime-Thrillers/Burning-Ember-Audiobook/B01EBD5402/ref=a_listener__cco_1_1_t

The narrators really brought this to life for me, and I hope they continue to work together 🙂

Review as follows, and yes, some spoilers –

 

“Fantastic duo narration!”

The whole story really demands a lot of thought and composure, but I’m not totally sure I can do that.

This is by far the longest book I’ve listened to at almost 18 hours, it’s taken me a full working week to get through it, and that means a lot to me. My time is very precious. I can never fit enough in as it is, without dedicating myself to this kind of book.

However, from the very beginning, Honey does the most fantastic job in the eyes of Ember to draw you in and totally consume everything you’re thinking and feeling. Ember has been through the worst thing you could imagine in life, to be trapped and abused by the man she loved. Stronger than you think she burned the house down and ran for her life, with little money and hardly any belongings.

It is that start out on her own that really sets alight her character, and this is a fantastic shout out to the writer for making her as wonderful and round as she is. She’s got issues of course, but she wants to trust and love and that is fab, even if it at first turns to crap with the two women at the shelter.

The journey that Red/Ember embarks on just because some youngster gave her $5 will be one that is full of twists and turns and emotional upheaval that no woman should ever really go through. I’m so in awe of her and I totally love her.

But that does bring me to Mav/Luce… or what ever other name he gets in the beginning.

He’s kinda a turn off. He’s hurt of course and I do understand that. But the bikers I know, and love. (I’m a biker chic and know some UK gangs) ….. well I just can’t see a guy leading a club being like this. I really struggle with his identity at the beginning. It’s not something that I can understand. This is I think down to the writer and how she’s wanting to portray things, but I think she could have kept his character and given us something to think about without the need to make Mav be as weak and almost just totally stupid in the beginning.

The book and narration on the whole I would never have guessed as being so long. Because I really did enjoy what Ember went through. There was of course hot sex and wanting more towards the middle and that was great. Wonderful attention to detail here. And from both sides of the narration. I wasn’t left with anything to think about, because it all was there. Their romance and get together was pretty good.

The religious side to Mav, also didn’t bother me too much, though I do wonder if any guy would have taken their new love down to the old house and show them everything that they were so openly, and then totally blow it out the water when Ember’s real father and situation come to life… I did also find that a stretch… a dramatic one, but yeah, still a stretch.

Ember also lasting as long as she did, with a full on bullet wound… eeek she’s so strong yet so weak.

The last two hours here were fab. I really loved the rescue and the conclusion with Warner. He did deserve to be tortured though….

As for the HEV I’m glad that things worked out for Ember, and the fact she went back to help Ivy, really good. I don’t know if there are more stories here, but I really think there is. And I want more.

As long as it was, as complicated as it was, this was one of the most interesting books I’ve listened to..

Great choice on narrators, and I hope that the author continues to use these so very talented people. They really brought this story to life for me.

🙂 i hope I can listen to more in the future.
