School teacher Ann Phillips knows that trusting a fae is dangerous. But when her most beloved second grader goes missing after she discovers magical tattoos on his arm, Ann turns to the one fae that is the most dangerous of them all Finn MacUmhaill.

Finn has wanted Ann for a very long time so when she comes to him for help, he believes this will be a way to prove himself to her. But Ann isn’t who she seems and Finn may have a extra story or two to share with Ann.

I have not read the previous books (1-3) to be honest I didn’t realize this was book four until I read the summary on goodreads.

However, I didn’t need the other books to really understand the whole picture of the book. There was somethings that was missing but overall it wasn’t too much a big deal.

This was an interesting read because it didn’t take much for Ann to get in bed with Finn (I guess from previous history). There wasn’t too much of a fight. The moment she saw him it was pretty much over. I wanted more fight from Ann especially since the whole thing was her not trusting the fae. I wanted more from Ann period because she didn’t have much personality other than the fact that she loved the children she works for and was extremely loyal.

Finn was the stereotypical but honest alpha male. He didn’t turn out to be much, which was a bit disappointing because I want him to be more than a typical bad ass fae.

The book was alright. There is heavy sex scenes but it doesn’t dominate the entire book. It doesn’t because Ann keeps reminding herself that her whole purpose is to save the boy. I feel like the first book of this series may actually be good but for the most part this was an okay book to pass the time.

Adult Book Review: Family Care by Jessa Callaver

Adult Review Only****

18 year old Josie decided that during her senior spring break to babysit for a new but beloved family in town.  Although the Sharps seem like the perfect family they are hiding a secret that Josie just got in the middle of.

*Short Review*


I was completely aware that this was an erotic, new adult book. But I was completely unaware with how intense this book was or how fast the intensity was going to come.

I am not bothered by the sexual scenes because that is why I picked up the book (look at the cover).

I enjoyed this read but really only because of one thing. The author is very talented in details and invoking a scandal and oddly enough surprise. The way she was able to write this story without predictability blows my mind because the obvious was there.

Josie, along with the other characters didn’t have any personality. It was as if sex is what defined them and that bothered me because there was really nothing else to this book. Seriously, nothing. The ending was too easy and Josie, who I once I thought was naive, knew exactly what she wanted and what she was doing.

But I cannot help but like this book. Maybe this says some things about me *Kanye Shrugs*

Alice lives for all things wonderful. She’s a 24-year-old woman, who has opened Mad Hatter’s Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe with her best friend. Things are going well until a fairy godmother decides that Alice is the one to save the Mad Hatter and in total save Wonderland.

The Mad Hatter is everything Alice has and has not dreamed of. Sexy, strong, rugged and completely out of his mind, Hatter is not an easy egg to crack for Alice but with only three days to fall in love can Alice discover his secret and release her own?

This was such a surprisingly good book I am still flabbergasted. This is an adult version of Alice in Wonderland without the falling down the rabbit hole. Alice is a grown woman who although is single, is not one of those women who are overly shy or has a horrible past that damaged their future. I liked Rose because she held her own without being the overly aggressive woman or the damsel in distress.

I also loved the setting of this novel. Wonderland is a mess but not a dark creepy mess with hidden evils. It is bright, confusing, complicated, bad but really good and it was completely emotion based. When Hatter was feeling crappy, Wonderland was feeling crappy; so it was really cool to see the setting change as Alice and Hatter go through the process of getting to know each other.

I was completely surprised by Hatter because he was supposed to be this bad boy and there was nothing bad about him. He is an attractive man who has stopped looking for love due to some bad experiences. There are some turns in his story but it isn’t in bad taste.

However, despite my love for these characters what bothered me was the huge dramatic scene towards the end. That was extremely dramatic that I am not entirely sure I liked it.  I understand why it was written like that to prove a point about fate but it was a bit over the top.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It gets 4 Pickles

Adults Only Book Review: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L James

I know I said I would never read this book but yeah . .  crap happens.

21 year old Anastasia Steele goes on an interview with wealthy, attractive Christian Grey as a fill in for her friend who is sick. Instantly she knows she wants this man and oddly enough he wants plain jane Ana too (as she likes to be called).

The thing is Christian is a control freak and there are things he likes done in certain ways. Ana being innocent is opened up to a whole new world (ha) that not only changes her but changes Christian as well.

Before I get into the BDSM, I have to say I loved the story. I loved Christian and I think E.L. James did an amazing job with this character. He wasn’t the typical rich man and his sensitivity surprised me. He wasn’t overly sensitive nor was he a jerk. He cared for Ana maybe even loved her but he made sure she was okay at all time. Granted he pushed the line to damn near stalkerish but I liked him . . . a lot.

I could live without Ana. She wasn’t a bad character but she didn’t make me smile like Christian. AND IM NOT SAYING THAT BECAUSE OF IM A WOMAN EITHER! Ana is young and Christian is her first so I get her back and forth especially since it’s more than vanilla sex . . .  LMAO

As for the BDSM it is not as bad as everyone said it was. I was expecting some really really disturbing things to happen but to be honest the guy likes control and technically that is all he is really doing minus one or two . .  toys.

None the less beyond the crappy sentences and the misplaced words I though the book was good. So good . . . I’m reading number two lol.

8 out of 10.
