Sunday Post #165

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Where did the week go!? I've been trying to get caught up and the days are just flying by. Check up appointment for kiddo and vet appointment for dog and cut grass and... Ugh, the week is gone! I'm sorry I didn't get to respond this week and visit your blogs. Things around here have to break one way or the other soon. It's crazy all that's been going on and how fast time escapes me these days.

Kiddo has decided his college! We went and paid the deposit a few weeks ago. And went to a spring football game yesterday. We'll be back up there in a month or so to learn all we need about loans and what we need to do next along with visit with professors and other students. This is a relief yet so much yet to do to get him done with high school and into college. It's going to be a busy next few months.

The dogs are still struggling. Wow. Let me say, I never knew German Shepard's were prone to have such severe allergies! This is insane the amount of problems, sicknesses, and pills these girls have been taking. I am to the point I can't afford it any more. Insane! We find a way to keep going to keep them in the best care we can though.

Reading wise, I've been slow on reading published novels with trying to get exercise in, personal events, and content editing work. It's going, just really slow. Thank the stars for audio books this year!

The Fit Booker:

Goal:  Workout in any form of exercise (or on Wii Fit) 2x's a week. (to feel better and hope to drop a few pants sizes)

How did I do last week... It's been one of those weeks with appointments for kiddo and a dog. I did get a walk in at lunch on Monday, cut grass for over an hour on Wednesday, and walked for half hour at lunch on Thursday.

Fire Water by Jaye Wells
Goodreads Synopsis:
Rookie cop Kate Prospero only has one more training assignment to pass before she's officially sworn in to Babylon Police Department. But the veteran cop in charge of the river patrol boat is a salty old guy isn't happy about playing tour guide to a rookie and seems even less interested in real police work. But while on patrol, they stumble on to what appears to be a floating dirty magic lab. This highly combustible situation might finally be the key to these two unlikely partners finding common ground.

Cursed Moon by Jaye Wells
Goodreads Synopsis:
When a rare Blue Moon upsets the magical balance in the city, Detective Kate Prospero and her Magical Enforcement colleagues pitch in to help Babylon PD keep the peace. Between potions going haywire and everyone's emotions running high, every cop in the city is on edge. But the moon's impact is especially strong for Kate who's wrestling with guilt over falling off the magic wagon.

After a rogue wizard steals dangerous potions from the local covens, Kate worries their suspect is building a dirty magic bomb. Her team must find the anarchist rogue before the covens catch him, and make sure they defuse the bomb before the Blue Moon deadline. Failure is never an option, but success will require Kate to come clean about her secrets.

Deadly Spells by Jaye Wells
Goodreads Synopsis:
After the grisly murder of a dirty magic coven leader, Kate Prospero and The Magical Enforcement Agency team up with the local police to find the killer. But as the infighting between covens turns ugly, an all-out war brews in the slums of Babylon.

When a tenacious reporter sticks her nose in both the investigation and Prospero's past in the covens, old ghosts resurface. The team will have to use all the weapons in their arsenal to stop the coven war and find the killer before the case brings down all their careers - and their lives.

Guardian Angel by Anna Santos
Goodreads Synopsis:
"What if the love of your life is your guardian angel?"
Sam is a fallen angel. His job is to protect Kyra until she gets her wings. The problem is, she doesn't know him outside the virtual world. To her, his name is Max and he’s her best friend online on whom she happens to have a huge crush.
When the time comes for Kyra to know the truth, they schedule a face-to-face meeting. But things get dangerous, and Sam needs to save her from invisible monsters.
More than ever, he needs to keep her safe until she turns into a Nephilim. That task turns close to impossible because of her inability to see the creatures. She’s terrified and believes Sam is a crazy kidnapper who is obsessed with her.
Can he protect her long enough for her to turn and embrace her new form?

Vampire's Retribution by Anna Santos
Goodreads Synopsis:
Ewan is any woman's dream lover. He's tall and sexy. He has eyes and lips to die for, not to mention his perfect ripped body. He also happens to be a vampire used to manipulate the opposite sex for his own personal interests and gains. 

Violet once believed that he loved her. She gave him her heart and soul, not to mention her life to spend an eternity with him. But he shattered her dreams when he planned her death to move on with another woman. 

At the present time, Violet is very much alive and she's now a deadly hunter and sorceress. She has waited for a long time to have her revenge and punish her former vampire master. She plans to trick the master of seduction and take that bad boy down. The problem is that she finds out that she's still attracted to him and that he might not be what she remembers. Ewan seems changed. Different. 

It doesn't help when her Sorcerer Master wants her for himself and she falls under the charm of his breathtaking blue eyes and dominant ways. 

Fighting against old feelings and trying to deal with the new ones, Violet finds herself being the object of desire of two powerful males and giving in to lust. 

All is fair in love and war, but can everything be forgiven?

Shadow Born by Jasmine Walt & Rebecca Hamilton
Goodreads Synopsis:
Chicago Police Detective Brooke Chandler is keeping a secret… and if she’s not careful, it could get her killed. 

Brooke is no stranger to the supernatural. In Chicago, vampires are just as prevalent as drug lords, and infinitely more bloodthirsty. So when her partner and fiancé dies in a mysterious fire while chasing down a lead in Salem, she suspects something dark and otherworldly is at play. 

Blessed with the ability to see into the past by touching inanimate objects, Brooke transfers to the Salem PD, hoping her talent will help her get to the bottom of things. Between dodging assassination attempts and being stonewalled at every turn, the going is tough. Add in a mysterious fae club owner with secrets of his own and a personal grudge against her, and it becomes nearly impossible. 

If Brooke wants to play in the supernatural sandbox, she’s going to have to roll up her sleeves and get dirty. But how many people will have to die for Brooke to discover the truth about her fiance? And is she even ready to know?
