Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes Audrey by Alexandra Bogdanovic reviewed today byDeal Sharing Aunt 'a good book, on a controversial subject'......"I wanted to read this book because I remember the whole Chaz backlash and thought that it was not fair. I really want to commend this author on telling her story and trying to spread awareness. The book was sad at times and at other times I was happy for the characters. I also live in Connecticut and I was interested in reading about my state. This is a good book, on a controversial subject. It is not for everyone. I however thought that it was well written. I am giving this book a 4/5."Read all about the #book and enter the #giveaway here......http://dealsharingaunt.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/truth-be-told-adam-be...
The Brand New 'Remingtons series' Game of Love by Melissa Foster has been reviewed by Espacular Aiesa and calls it an 'electrifying book' Book #1 The Remingtons, Love in Bloom Series #10"Well, Let me be blunt… Just looking at the cover had me hooked! I got my copy for review, but I guarantee if I saw this baby on the shelf, I would snap it up in a split-second. Kudos to the cover designer. Now as for the book. I have to say it lived up to the cover really well. Ellie Parker and Dex Remington’s first encounter was a romance of comforting love that ended abruptly. Raised in foster care, Ellie did not trust easily. Dex became her anchor. Dex is broken when she leaves without a word goodbye. Ellie left and spent the next few years a guarded and ready for flight. Dex spent his time locked in keeping his feelings close and people at a safe distance from his heart. Fast forward to present day and a chance encounter. Will they overcome their solid defenses and fall in love again? The journey to find out is a bit spicy and energetic. Go ahead… I dare you to read this electrifying book! Can’t wait til the next book in this series!"Find out more about 'the Remingtons' plus enter the brand new #giveaway here !!http://www.espacularaiesa.com/2014/03/02/game-love-melissa-foster-r...
SIGNED #BOOK #GIVEAWAY - Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes Audrey by Alexandra Bogdanovic
5 WINNERS - Open Worldwide !!
Meeting the man of your dreams, falling in love and getting married. It sounds like every woman’s dream. But what if you suddenly found out that your husband self-identified as and wanted to become a woman? That’s exactly what happened to Connecticut-based reporter Alexandra Bogdanovic. As the daughter of music and television icons, Sonny and Cher, Chastity Bono grew up in the public eye. So it was shocking to people everywhere when she became Chaz. Her decision to “become” a man made headlines around the world, but Bono is not alone. Transgender men and women frequently appear on television talk shows and reality programs to share their stories. In doing so, they inevitably get the attention they seek; although it may not always be the kind of attention they want. While many come forth in an effort to promote tolerance, acceptance and understanding in mainstream society, their decision to live as – or in some cases have surgery to become – the opposite gender often sparks curiosity and visceral reactions born from ignorance. Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes Audrey, a new book from author Alexandra Bogdanovic, tells the other side of the story. Part tragedy, part comedy, part love story, the book tells the story of the author’s real life experience of meeting a man, falling in love, getting married and finding out her husband wanted to become a woman. This book is the story of what happened after she learned the truth.
3 Lucky winners will each a receive China Jewel ebookOpen WorldwideEnding on Sunday 16th March

They constantly risk their lives as they uncover a tale which may affect the future of modern China, all the time knowing they are targeted by an unseen enemy. Then far at sea, the Peregrine mysteriously disappears. Cutter must find and rescue the ship against impossible odds. Tough former soldier that he is, he must still conquer his recurring personal demon. His only son is aboard. He deserted his son once before and he fears he will fail him again.
Our Book ReviewThe author said to buckle up for an emotional ride and that is exactly what you get as the attraction between two gorgeous people sets to spark and ignite. You certainly feel the heat and intensity as you read their journey. I have to say that I am not a massive romance reader as the stories I have read in the past tend to be too shallow, Melissa Foster has changed my thoughts completely. Not only is this hot romance intense and a page turner it has depth to the story, the characters actually have real personalities and believable issues that you can possibly relate to.The story follows the dashing Treat Braden, a wealthy resort owner, and the attractive Max Armstrong, an events manager, who fall heavily in love at first sight, although due to past inner issues cannot freely give themselves and wrongly second guess what each other is thinking or feeling. The grief from loosing his mother when he was younger still haunts Treat and he believes he is never going to allow himself to be hurt like that again. Can Max change all that? Max has also built walls around herself after a verbally and physically past relationship? Can Treat persuade her that he will always love and protect her?Two passionate people, so in love with each other, both wanting to share their passion with each other, can they resolve their issues and let themselves find happiness with each other?I enjoyed the way the author gives the thoughts from both perspectives throughout the story. I have to admit that I would have loved to be part of the Braden family, with the family bond between them all, headed by their father Hal. Yes they have their typical family squabbles but deep down knowing that they are all there for each other no matter what.A thoroughly enjoyable, sensual and visual read. I was completely pulled into their 'will they, won't they' relationship and cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
New book review: The Ballad of Mila by Matteo Strukul
Link to review: http://www.themusescircle.blogspot.com/2014/02/book-review-ballad-o...
Book blurb: Hell hath no fury - Two perfectly matched gangs are fighting for control of the North-East Italian region of Venetia. But a formidable young woman with vengeance on her mind has plans to upset the balance. Abandoned by her mother and violated by a gang of criminals just after they slaughtered her father, Mila Zago is a cold-blooded killer, a deadly assassin. Brought up by her grandfather on the Sette Comuni plateau under a rigid martial code, she returns home to seek her revenge, conspiring to create a spectacular showdown reminiscent A Fistful of Dollars. The Ballad of Mila is the first novel in an on-going series focused on the formidable female Italian Bounty Hunter Mila Zago, a.k.a. Red Dread.

Another excellent novel from a rising star of the literally world, the research and knowledge of the author shines through and uses his favourite place and characters from Chesapeake.The story revolves around a international tall ships race, following an ancient tea trade route, where the boats have to be replicas from the nineteenth century. When the Americans start researching the history of their ship it takes them on a treasure hunt and they find it takes them on a journey into the old ships route and brings them into conflict with the Chinese authorities.The author style of writing draws and enthralls the reader and you feel as if you are there experiencing all the emotions of all the characters in the situations they face. The tension and suspense that the writer builds up to a crescendo is superb and the adventures and scenarios that are described are first class. The intense relationships which are portrayed in the storyline are excellent and you can relate the feelings to moments in your own life. This vibe you get brings the characters even more to life.This novel has everything a reader needs, romance, thrills, excitement, treasure seeking and the building of relationships between father and son. Another first rate account from one of my favourite authors and look forward to reviewing more of his books.
