Brandy's Book Nook: Review of the War Prize series by Elizabeth Vaughan

War Prize Series
Elizabeth Vaughan
This is a blast from my past, and a series that has really stuck with me. I read the first three books in paperback a few years ago and loved, loved, loved them. There is different covers, so I'm guessing they have been updated since then.
This series is about a princess that becomes a healer instead of sitting around all day doing nothing. To end a war she is given to the Firelander Warlord as a War Prize. She is lead to believe this means a life of slavery, but nothing could be farther from the truth. She has to learn how to survive in a new culture with strange customs and beliefs. Over the course of three books she has to learn where she belongs in this new world where everyone is a soldier, fight a plague, and battle superstitions that could mean her death.
There is danger, love, a slew of characters that will fascinate, and tears. Oh lord is there tears. I cried like a baby at a few different places through out the series. Even when I…

It was supposed to be easy.
Move to Montana and accept a job as the live-in physical therapist of a famous bull rider. But when I arrive, my new patient isn't what I expected at all.

Cash Boyd isn't just sinfully sexy, he's also rude, arrogant, and probably the most stubborn man I've ever met. He claims he doesn't need my help and tries to pay me off to leave. But I'm not one to give up even though the sexy cowboy is a pain in the ass.

A few months...that's as long as it should take to do my job.
The rules are pretty simple.
All I have to do is stay professional even though everything about Cash Boyd is scorching hot. And he doesn't make a secret out of the fact that he wants me where I can never end his bed. I'm determined to keep my distance. But what if my patient has other plans for us?

Book Tour Blitz: Three Heart Echo by Keary Taylor

Three Heart Echo
Keary Taylor
Publication date: September 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Suspense

The demented thing is that this evolved from the most sickly sweet, heart-wrenching love story you’ve ever heard. I went to Sully because I just couldn’t get over Jack’s murder. I couldn’t deal.

Iona came to me for the same reason most did: because there was no closure. A love cut too short. She begged me to open the gate between the living and the dead.

We should have left it shut.

This. This is not a love story. This is a possession story. A story of lies. A story of two faces. This is a story of death and violent echoes from the other side.

And there will be no happy endings.

Goodreads / AmazonExcerpt There’s been this look of dread and apprehension in Sully’s eyes since the moment he opened the church doors to find me. It’s been growing into something hard and cold moment by moment. But with my revelation, it solidifies into something heavy as the world.
“Sit down,” he says in somet…

Brandy's Book Nook: Review of Deep Into the Game: A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller: Volume 1

Deep Into The Game:A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller Vol 1
Saul Tanpepper ✩✩✩✩✩

I decided to read this last night as the baby was sleeping, and was hooked. I had to change plans and share this one with you guys. One thing you need to know is this is part of a set. The author himself says on the first page that it was created as straight for TV. There is plenty of drama, and a cliff hanger. There is also some prequels and companion books for a more in depth look at how the first and second outbreak happened.

There is also some intense fast paced action here! Your introduced to a group of hackers and gamers who would like to play The Game, but can't because it's too expensive. The Game is played by people who can pay big money to control zombies. So they start thinking about going to the physical location where they would be able to hack they're way in. Only problem is the zombies. By the end of the book I was sitting on the floor hanging on to every word. Will they make it? Nail …

Review: Princess of the Night by Teresa Fuentez and Tich Brewster

Princesses of the Night
by Teresa Fuentez & Tich Brewster
(Royal Blood, #1)
Publication date: September 22nd 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal

Tanya is a hardworking college student but her whole world is turned upside down when she meets a mysterious man on Halloween. All that she thought was fiction is now her reality. A night life filled with fangs and blood—and an evil vampire that wants her dead.

She and her friends are the chosen ones, destined long ago, to save this world from destruction. That’s not easy when your enemy is your sire’s son.

My Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Beware: Possible Spoilers I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.
Who wouldn't like Diva Vampires? This story is different, and I would have given it five stars, if it wasn't for the manuscript errors, and fluff. An extra word in the middle of a fight is momentarily jarring. There are some misspelled words and confusing scenes. 
While there are errors throughout, most are in the first half of the bo…
