Sneak Peek - Spine chillers



Q.L. Pearce – Prose
Excerpt from Spine Chillers
Prom Date The Roller Grille was the real deal. An authentic drive-in restaurant with car hops on roller skates delivering trays of burgers and fries to people parked outside. It had been in business for decades. Other than a fresh coat of paint now and then it hadn’t changed from the day it opened. Tyler, Andy and Jacob threaded around the cars and pushed through the glass doors to the diner. A hostess dressed in a fuzzy sweater and a poodle skirt guided customers to booths covered in red vinyl. A candy-colored jukebox blared from a corner. The laughter and chatter of the crowd was louder than the music. Tyler noticed Shay jammed into a booth with her friends. He raised a hand in greeting but she ignored him. Andy pointed to the long soda fountain. “There’s room over there.” Tyler nodded and they each claimed a stool. “What’ll it be?” Randy, the soda jerk adjusted his black bow tie and gave them a toothy grin. The boys ordered shakes. Andy whirled around once on his stool and stopped to face Jacob. “So do they have any place like this in Phoenix?” “No. This is pretty cool.” He looked around and his eye settled on a wall of photographs. “Who are those people?” “Those are the prom kings and queens from the high school,” Tyler answered. “Wow there’s like a hundred of them. What’s the deal with those two?” Jacob pointed to a black and white photo that was larger than the rest. Tyler slipped into telling the story that everyone in town knew by heart. “That’s Johnny Tonnarro and his girlfriend, Samantha. He was like a rock star a long time ago.

Reseña
La verdad me parecio mucho mas interesante leerlo, había partes muy cómicas me encanto y una de las cosas que me agrado mas debería decir que fue que era fácil identificarse con Bella, por lo menos para mi que me pasan a veces cosas muy parecidas a las que le pasaban.

me gusto que en el libro Bella tenia mas personalidad y no era tan simple como parece en la película eso sí, y Edward me mato era como un niño travieso la verdad.

el final fue bueno para ser el primer libro y me gusto que para el final la trama daba unos giros bastante interesantes la verdad, pero el resto no aburría era bastante consistente y tenía una trama divertida.

Review
at first it was hard for me to understands what was happening, but that was also true for our protagonists, as you advance more in the story you become one with it and want to know more and discover all the secrets that the plot is holding.

I became very fond of Sam and Leana and the little hint at the end of what play is coming next was so cool.

It has everything you need in a book, romance, intrigue, a little craziness and of course interesting characters, a must for fantasy and plays fans.

Book Haul - Febrero 2017





Bueno mi primer book haul del año fue bastante productivo por decir lo mínimo la verdad.
entre Steps of Power y Amazon, la verdad que pedí varios libros super interesantes y aun me falta uno de Barnes&Noble pero ese llegará después.
Well my first book haul of the year was quite productive to say the least truth.
Between Steps of Power y Amazon, the truth that I asked for several books super interesting and I still lack one of  Barnes&Noble but that will come later.
los primeros en mi lista fueron Kings or Pawns y Heroes or Thieves, el primer es excelente y el segundo aun debo leerlo, pero pronto verán esa reseña por aquí. Tuve la suerte de que su autora J.J. Sheerwod me los enviara firmados y como un obsequio me envió dos separadores de los personajes de sus libros, eso me fascino. 
The first on my list were Kings or Pawns and Heroes or Thieves, the first is excellent and the second I still have to read it, but soon see that review here. I was lucky that the author J.J. Sheerwod sent them to me signed and as a gift sent me two bookmarks of the characters on his books, that fascinated me.

El siguiente fue Truthwitch, de Susan Dennard que lo había visto en mi país con otra portada pero al ver esta pues obviamente debía tenerla es hermosisima y la historia se oye super interesante. 
The following was Truthwitch, by Susan Dennard I had seen it in my country with another cover but seeing this obviously should have it is beautiful and the story is heard super interesting.

para la colecciòn llego Mirror Image que es un libro de suspenso, terror al mejor estilo mitológico de Michael Scott y Melanie Ruth Rose, simplemente no podía faltar en mi librerìa. 
For the collection arrived Mirror Image that is a book of suspense, terror to the best mythological style of Michael Scott and Melanie Ruth Rose, simply could not miss in my shelf.

el màs esperado era sin duda King's Cage de Victoria Aveyard, porque menos quedarme sin saber que termina de pasar en esta saga. 
The most awaited was definitely King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard, because less I stay without knowing that ends up happening in this saga.

Maze Runner

 

The Maze Runner

 


Director:


 Wes Ball

Writers:

Noah Oppenheim (screenplay), Grant Pierce Myers (screenplay)
T.S. Nowlin (screenplay), James Dashner (novel)
 
Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they're all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow "runners" for a shot at escape.
 
********************************************************************************
I watched this movie a while ago, it was pretty cool, like really awesome, I loved it and who don't it has drama, action, sci-fi, it a good movie and again in the dystopian genre.
 
It was pretty cool the way they get around the plot, because you begin knowing almost nothing at all and you begin to discover everything at the same time the characters do, meanwhile you will begin having your conjectures about what it's really happening and maybe you will get right but most likely you will discover the truth when the protagonist do.
 
The interesting thing of Maze Runner it's the fact they don't know why they are where they are, I mean a lot of boys in the middle of a fortress it's not what you call conventional, the way they adapt to their rules and try to find a way out it's very interesting. 
 
I think all can enjoy this movie because it's fun to watch and it will get you at the edge at all times.
 
********************************************************************************
 
Vi esta película un tiempo atrás, estaba muy buena, la verdad fue increíble, me encanto y a quien no tiene un poco de drama, acción , sci-fi, es una muy buena película y de nuevo dentro del genero distópico.
 
Me gusto mucho la forma en la que realizan la trama, porque empiezas no sabiendo prácticamente nada y vas descubriendo todo mano a mano con los personajes, mientras haces eso tambien harás tus propias ideas de lo que esta pasando en realidad y quizás tengas razón pero muy posiblemente descubras la verdad junto con el protagonista. 
 
Lo interesante de Correr o Morir es el hecho de que los personajes ninguno sabe como llego donde esta ahora, empecemos por la idea de que un montón de chicos en la mitad de una fortaleza no es lo que llamas muy convencional, pero la forma en la que se adaptan a sus reglas y tratan de buscar una salida es de los mas interesante.
 
Creo que es una película que todos pueden disfrutar porque es muy interesante de ver y hasta divertida en ciertos aspectos y muy por sobretodo te mantendrá al limite en todo momento.

Cover Reveal: Summer Trouble



 Title: Summer Trouble
Series: A Ruby Romp Novella
Author: Ruby Rowe
Genre: Erotica Romance
Cover Design: Jo-Anna at Just write. Creations
Release Date: March 9, 2017
 

COLTON
I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.
She was the forbidden fruit.
The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.
The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.
But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.

SUMMER
I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.
Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.

Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.



 



 



Excerpt from Summer Trouble
© Ruby Rowe 2017

Stretching out on my bed, so my toenails and fingernails can dry, I close my eyes and get lost in Luke Bryan’s Pandora channel. Without warning, my earbud is yanked out, and Jason is standing over me, wearing a smirk.

“Wake up, Jenny. Forest is waiting downstairs.”

“What? What are you talking about?”

“You know, Forest, from that movie Mom watches all the time.”

I sit up at the side of the bed. “I know what you mean, but I swear I don’t have a boyfriend. I’m not seeing anyone,” I rattle off.

“I’m not the damn relationship police. I don’t care if you’re dating someone or not. I’m just telling you Zane’s at the door.” Stepping back, he scowls. “You’re so dense I can’t even joke with you.”

Holy shit. Zane and Colton are both here.

Shooting to my feet, I scurry from my bedroom and barrel down the stairs. Once I reach the bottom, I’m about to go straight out the front door, but something tells me to turn around and face the hallway next to the stairs. Colton is right there, maybe three feet from me, and I believe his glare could lead a protest march.

Lord, he’s so sexy. His shoulder is casually leaning against the wall, and a heavy work boot is crossed over the other. He’s in a filthy white t-shirt and faded jeans that are hugging his impressive package. Skin glistens with sweat and dirt, and I want to mount this man who’s all kinds of gorgeous from manual labor.

“Tell the weakling you can’t come out and play, pack a bag for the night and then park behind my house in twenty,” he whispers aggressively. “I want to punish you.”


 

Ruby Rowe’s debut novella releases March 9, 2017; however, this is not her first book. She began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe, releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica romance and fell in love with the genre.
The pen name Ruby Rowe came about this year when she decided it best to keep her racier books separate from her young adult romances. She also has plans to branch out and release straight erotica, however, she’s a romantic at heart, and believes it will be difficult not to include it in every story.
When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males. She has an addiction to Pinterest, pinning all the sensual photos she can find. She loves bacon, coffee, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. ;) She hopes her writing will allow her readers a reprieve from the real world, giving them an opportunity to live out their fantasies.

Friday face Off - February 10th


Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic Books and Beyond Reviews
The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.

Friday Face-Off es una idea originalmente pensada por Books By Proxy que vi y quise hacer del super blog de Book and Beyond Reviews.
La idea originalmente era comparar las portadas del Reino Unido y de los Estados Unidos sobre la base de un tema asignado cada semana y elegir la portada ganadora. Voy a ser torcer ligeramente: no específicamente EE.UU. y Reino Unido cubre, sólo diferentes ediciones.

This week's theme or feature is "Diamonds" and the quote with it is "Diamonds are a girl's best friend! "
El tema o portada de esta semana es "Diamantes" y la cita con él es "¡Los diamantes son los mejores amigos de una chica! "
