Jetting to Martinique for a modeling assignment with three of Europe’s hottest magazine photographers—Gustave, Fabian, and Leon—should’ve been easy, breezy beautiful. Never did I expect to look up and see a hole in the ceiling of our plane that was bigger in size than my Birkin bag.
Shit! We’re nose-diving toward Eden Island. I pictured how my New York Times obituary might read when I’m gone, “Taddy Brill, Manhattanite, dethroned descendant of the Austrian House of Brillford royalty, dies at age eighteen, penniless, unloved, and a virgin.” I swear this crap only happens to me. Suddenly, Leon pulls me with Fabian and Gustave. Adrenaline racing through me, our bodies clung as one. We prepared to…crash.

Colorblind (Moonlight)

Deeply moving and sexy. A truly enjoyable book. My heart ached for the slaves and what they had to endure because of the color of their skin. Leon and Penny despite adversity were able to love each other. I appreciated how strong the characters were. This book was beautifully written, it displayed the hardships of those times and the strong will the African Americans had to survive. Threw it all the characters were able to find love despite their racial differences.

Taken by Moonlight book review

Love, loved this book. I can't get enough of Conall Athelwulf. Like they say today he is EVERYTHING. Uber alpha male who is strong, sexy, loving, and protective. He is everything you want in a romance hero wrapped up in a delectable package. Definitely book boyfriend material. He is one dreamy werewolf. I loved his connection with Vivienne. He would do anything for Vivienne, as she would for him. Their love was challenged and tested, but they overcame every obstacle that was thrown at them and came out stronger. Awesome interracial romance story. I highly recommend this book, you won't want to put it down. I'm eager for more from Violette Dubrinsky.

'The bicycle fence' by Tom Noll book review
 The Trash to Treasure Series latest book "The Bicycle Fence" by Tom Noll is fun, informative, and insightful. The importance of recycling and taking care of our planet is progressively becoming foremost on people's priorities. Recycling for a while now has been an integral part of helping to save our planet. This book shows children a great way that they too can help save their planet by reusing and recycling.

LT is a little boy that comes from a family that lives a green lifestyle. LT is a smart and resourceful boy. he promotes going green and rides his bicycle to school. When he needs a new bike LT's day doesn't think twice about going to the local junkyard Recycleville to find a bike for LT, like his dad's truck. LT is worried that his bike will be rainbow colored like his dad's truck that everyone calls the junkyard truck. LT doesn't want to have a bike deemed the junkyard bike, in this cute and smart book,
LT tries to find a way to solve his problem.

I would definitely recommend this book for young learners, I think it is a fun way to learn about the benefits of recycling and how you can use recycled products. The illustrations were bold and beautifully done.. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end. I would absolutely use this book in the classroom during lessons about recycling, and helping to save our planet.

Choice book review

I truly enjoyed reading this. I think the storyline, setting, and characters were very well thought out. As I read each page I found myself engrossed in the world that she was weaving with her words. Raif and Natasha, are two great characters. I want to know more about them as the series continues. Their strength and courage was a great asset to their character. I found them very likable. I hope that they will soon be reunited. I wanted to weep for them for the sacrifices they had to make.
