Mimi Jean Pamfiloff is back!

***Thank you to the author for the generous gift of an ARC so that I could leave my honest review.***

THE LIBRARIAN’S VAMPIRE ASSISTANT, book #3 (Stand Alone)

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes an uncomfortably hilarious
Mystery with a heaping help of sexual frustration, THE LIBRARIAN’S VAMPIRE ASSISTANT,
Book Three. (Yep! It’s a STAND-ALONE. But why not read them all because…fun!)
FALLING IN LOVE WITH A LIBRARIAN JUST CAN’T GET MORE AWKWARD…
Michael Vanderhorst is not your usual vampire. For starters, he works in a library, is in love with
Miriam, his hot nerdy human boss who has no clue what he is, and he looks like a college
student.
In reality, Michael is an ancient deadly vampire, an ex-assassin, and is currently the de facto king
of his kind ever since their ruling party disappeared. To where? He doesn’t know, but if he wants
his life back, he’ll have to find out. (Mystery!) Especially because a civil war is brewing, and
being king makes his librarian a mark for his enemies. She is, after all, his biggest weakness.
With a global uprising about to explode, Michael must give her the protection of his army. Only
one problem: She must become his queen first. But every attempt he makes to tell her the truth is
met with extreme hostility. “Vampires aren’t real. That’s crazy talk, Michael!” Clearly, the topic
frightens her.
With time running out and her life on the line, Michael is left with one option: Marry her.
Without her knowing.
Can he pull it off? And what will happen when the fight comes to their door?

My Thoughts:

Yep! This is hands down my favorite book in this series.  Michael trying to tell Miriam that he is a vampire is EVERYTHING.  I was laughing so hard just picturing the scene. I also find his hatred for his rental car delightful.  I can't give any spoilers away but they way the battle plays out between Michael and his warriors is done very, very well.

Review of The Earl Next Door by Amelia Grey


**Thanks to Amelia Grey and St. Martin's Press for the ARC. The review to follow is my own honest opinion of this book.***
Adeline, the Dowager Countess of Wake, has been enjoying the freedom that being a widow has given her for the past 2 years.  She knows that Society believes she has been in mourning but really she has just been allowed to finally breath and feel like an actual human again.  Her marriage was filled with hurt and disappointment but now she is about to re-enter Society and start a new life for herself.  Her best friends have also suffered from the same premature ends to their marriages.  All 3 widows decide that they must use their status and money to help those less fortunate.  They do this by starting a boarding school for the surviving daughters of a horrible shipwreck.  The school is located on the back of Lady Wake's property much to the disappointment of her neighbor, Lord Lyon Marksworth, the Earl of Lyonwood. Lyon has just returned from his other estates to be in London for the upcoming Season and is rudely roused from his sleepy the sound of laughing, screaming girls.  He decides he needs to put an end to it even if that means upsetting the very attractive and intriguing Lady Wake.

Lyon and Adeline are great characters.  I love the chemistry between them. Also, who doesn't like an old neighbor with a spy glass? This story sets the reader up pretty nicely for the rest of the series to come.  This was a fairly quick read but I felt like at some points the book was moving just a little too fast. Usually I would complain about a book taking to long to reach the obvious conclusion but with these characters I found myself wanting the game of cat and mouse to drag out a bit more. This is ANOTHER truly great read from Amelia Grey.

4 out 5 stars is my opinion of this 1st book in the new First Comes Love series. This waas released on May 28 so grab a copy form Amazon or wherever you buy your books

Stop Everything and Watch Someone Great on Netflix!


***Trailer courtesy of Netflix and YouTube*****

I would gladly shout from the rooftops about my love for Netflix but I feel like anyone who reads these posts will know that about me already.  I have been been watching so much Netflix lately that my TBR pile of books has slowly overtaken a whole counter.  I have so many reviews to put up but first.......

Someone Great is a new Netflix Original film starring Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin, Miss Bala), Brittany Snow (all the Pitch Perfect films), and DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It).  They are best friends just trying to live their best lives when Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) lands her dream job as a music writer for Rolling Stone and has to move from NYC to San Francisco. Her excitement is cut short when her long time boyfriend played by Lakeith Stanfield decides that their relationship isn't working and breaks up with her. Jenny turns to her best friends Blair and Erin to help her get through it and find some way to move on to the next phase of her life.

This movie was perfection!  I could totally relate to being in that phase of life where you are grown-up but not quite ready to accept all the shitty things that come with it.  I remembered looking at some of my friends and thinking that a responsible adult wouldn't go out on a Wednesday or Thursday night when they have a job to be at bright and early the next day (and being super jealous because I didn't go out).  I absolutely related to the feeling of a relationship falling apart and knowing in the back of your mind that it really was time to move on , even if you don't want to admit it.  I laughed, cried, and sang right along with the ladies in this film.  Well done Netflix! I can't tell you how happy this movie made my heart!  5 stars all the way!!!
