Whatcha Reading Wednesday - The Dog Who Saved the World

Middle-grade story. 

The Dog Who Saved the World
by  Ross Welford





What they say: The astounding new novel from the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author of Time Travelling with a Hamster, this is a story for everyone of ten and older who loves adventure, laughs and tears.
When eleven-year-old Georgie befriends an eccentric retired scientist, she becomes the test subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual-reality 3D version of the future.
But then a deadly disease threatens the life of every dog in the country and Georgie’s beloved dog, Mr Mash, gets sick. And that’s only the start of her troubles.
Soon, Georgie and Mr Mash must embark on a desperate quest: to save every dog on earth, and maybe even all of humanity …
… without actually leaving the room.
An extraordinary quest with the biggest stakes of all, and a huge idea at its heart, this is time travel – but not as you know it.

Ten Kisses to Scandal - Review

Ten Kisses to Scandal
by Vivienne Lorret




What they say: The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule—never fall in love with the client. However, they never said anything about kissing a rake…

Briar Bourne’s matchmaking career could be summed up in two words—comic disaster. Unless she can learn about the irresistible forces that draw men and women together, her professional future looks rather bleak. But Briar has an intriguing plan—enlisting London’s most irredeemable rake to teach her everything he knows about attraction. Given his notorious reputation, it’s no surprise that Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, requests one thing in exchange for his tutelage. For every lesson, he wants a kiss in return. And what harm could there be in a simple kiss? After all, Briar would never fall for a scoundrel…

Nicholas has no romantic notions about love, and no intention of changing his ways. He’s only helping Briar so that she can find the perfect bride for his jilted cousin. Yet Briar is so clever, so curious, so candid—so blasted tempting—that soon, Nicholas can’t stop wondering what it might be like if he was irresistible to her.

Ten lessons. Ten kisses. And a million ways to fall hopelessly, scandalously in love.


I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I seem to be on a historical romance binge at the moment, but I really liked Ten Kisses to Scandal. It has a real Emma vibe going on.

Briar is sweet and funny. I read the book during a particularly dark and rainy day but found myself laughing along at her antics and forgetting the cold.

I liked the agency matchmaker element and how seemingly bad Briar was at it. Briar is an interesting mix of respectable lady and feminist - she'd definitely work as a modern Rom-Com heroine.

Nicholas both intrigued and infuriated me. He has all the attributes a of classic historical romance hero but there were times I wanted to shake some sense into him!

I haven't read any of Vivienne Lorret's other books (unless unknowingly under a pen name) but will certainly look out for her stories in the future.

4 Stars in my Sky!

New Release - River Wild


River Wild
by Samantha Towle is LIVE!!!!




RIVER WILD will only available on Kindle priced at $o.99 as a special release day price, then the price will rise to $3.99. Also, it will be free on Kindle Unlimited.

Buy HERE!!! 




What they say: A new town. A new identity. Pregnant and alone. 
And far away from a past that can never find me. 

River Wild.
Moody. Sullen. Asshole.
And my new neighbor.

I have no interest in befriending River. And he definitely doesn’t want to be befriended by me.

Then, he helps me rescue an abandoned dog. And, that day, I see something in his eyes that reflects back in my own. Sadness. Pain. Loneliness.

I know all of those things well.

An unwanted and unexpected friendship that somehow works. Then, without warning, it turns into something more.

River and I both have our secrets, and that’s okay. Because I understand him. And he understands me.

For the first time in my life, I have something I never thought I would have—happiness.

But happiness isn’t forever. Not for people like me.

Especially not when my past is waiting just around the corner, ready to come and take it all away.

When Ashes Fall - Keep Seeing

I keep seeing this one coming up on my recommendation list - it's out soon so is about time I read it!

When Ashes Fall
by Marni Mann




What they say: "When Ashes Fall is a tautly written, complex, and emotionally-charged love story that takes the reader on an unforgettable, unexpected, and deeply moving journey.” —USA Today 

It’s been said that you can’t love two men at the same time.
You can’t split your heart, soul, and body in half.
But I’m here to tell you, you can.
Dylan Cole is like ice, sharp and unpredictable, the thunder inside a tumultuous storm.
Smith Reid is warmth, soft and gentle, perfect like a sunny day.
Both are mine.
But I can have only one.
There are two sides to this tale. 
I'm here to tell you mine. 
If you think this story is about a cheater, you couldn’t be more wrong.

Releases This Week - The Gilded Wolves

The Gilded Wolves #1
by Roshani Chokshi





Set in a darkly glamorous world, The Gilded Wolves is full of mystery, decadence, and dangerous but thrilling adventure.

Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.

To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can't yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much.

Together, they'll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.
