ARC Review: Here and Now by Cheryl Etchison


Here and Now is the second book in the American Valor series by Cheryl Etchison. I am really loving this series, and am becoming a huge fan of Cheryl's. This series is emotional and both stories so far have been so good that I couldn't put either one of them down. If you are a contemporary fan and love military heroes, this series is a must read!

Former Ranger Medic Lucky James is adjusting to civilian life and has decided to work nights in the ER while attending classes during the day. Things are working out for him until his 19 year old lab partner shows up with dinner one night looking for more. Lucky knows that he needs help and asks his coworker Rachel to help him out. But Rachel is also in need of some help and agrees to help Lucky with his chem partner as long as Lucky will help move her out of her boyfriend's place so that she can finally break up with him. As Lucky and Rachel get to know one another, things start to change and both of them find themselves feeling far more than they expected. Can two people who weren't looking for love or a future find one together?

I really liked these two. I will admit that while I had liked Lucky in the first book of the series, I had been hoping to get Mike's story. But as soon as I started Here and Now, Lucky had me! Seeing him adjust to civilian life and start a friendship with Rachel was something that I couldn't get enough of. Lucky was such a great hero, and I thought that him and Rachel were fantastic together. Rachel was great as well, and even though these two weren't initially friends and didn't plan on anything more, they fit together perfectly. She helped him just as he helped her, and I felt like the connection they were forming was so real and genuine. 

Overall, another great story in the American Valor series by Cheryl Etchison. I am so glad that I took a chance on Cheryl with Once and For All, because this series is everything I look for in a great Contemporary Romance series. I have really loved both books, and I think that readers will love these just as much as I have. Though I have never been through what any of these characters have, Cheryl Etchison has a way with words and I feel like there is something in each of these that anyone can relate to. Her characters are interesting and unique, and I have felt invested in each of them. I can't wait to read more from Cheryl Etchison, and I am still anxiously awaiting Mike's story!

Feature and Giveaway: A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet


KINGDOMS WILL RISE AND FALL FOR HER…

BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT

Catalia "Cat" Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods—and her homicidal mother—have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever.

Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm—until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.

ARC Review: A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet


Catalia (Cat) is a fortuneteller with a travelling circus. One night she is approached by five men and is asked if any of them are disloyal to their leader, Griffin. Griffin's suspicions are correct in two things. One of his men is in fact a traitor, and second, Cat is the Kingmaker. She can determine between truth and lies when spoken.

Griffin decides to take her hostage and back to the capitol and his sister. He has conquered the previous royal family and put his older sister on the throne. Cat fights as hard as she can to get away from the men and makes the journey as difficult as she can. Despite her captivity, she starts to care for the group and have romantic thoughts about Griffin.

The small company faces some incredible beings and magic. Turns out she is a known entity to Gods like Hades and Poseidon. Griffin has some unique abilities of his own, and he also becomes obsessed with Cat. He cannot stop trying to figure out all of her secrets. Cat resists pretty well but she is at war with herself over it.

Personally, I thought it was pretty lazy of the author to use Greek Gods and Goddesses for this story. It doesn't really go into them very much and only their names and basic powers are used. I don't think any of the city's mentioned are from ancient Greece. I wasn't impressed, but it is possible that I'm particularly biased because I love Greek Mythology. It just would have been better if the world and magic was original.

Cat's character was hard from me to decide on. She annoyed me to no end with her overconfident sarcasm while at the same time I admired it. It was an inner struggle for me. I did find her pretty funny though. I hated Griffin. He just would not see that he was forcing Cat to be with them. He kept justifying it with his family's need for her abilities. He wasn't even the slightest bit remorseful for doing that to someone he cared about.

The plot of the book was pretty amateur. It repeated itself. A new threat would appear, and Cat would miraculously save the day almost killing herself. She'd regret not telling Griffin, info and then when she recovers or is saved, she still won't confide in him. The book ends out of nowhere. I understand that the story will continue, but even a smaller resolution was not found.

Despite the fact that this book had contradictions galore, I was still pretty hooked. Something kept pulling me to turn the page. I think the author does a good job of keeping the reader on their toes and wanting to uncover the next secret. It's a good ability for Amanda Bouchet to have and speaks of her potential. For a debut, this is a entertaining read. I look forward to seeing how the author improves.
