Cover Reveal | Just One Cup - Cassandra Giovanni

cover with tattoos
Title: Just One Cup
Author: Cassandra Giovanni
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date: June 20, 2013


Emma Walker was a writer who'd lost herself to someone else's anger--who had given up on ever feeling like herself again.
Evan Levesque was a rock-god--the one all the woman wanted, but he'd never gotten used to the loneliness between the stage and real life.
With just one cup of coffee they'll begin a journey of self-discovery at each others sides, but can Emma handle Evan's fame while dealing with her own demons? Emma's checkered personal past, a bad relationship that haunts the edges of her memories, threatens to make everything implode on them when Evan takes matters into his own hands.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words...they'll destroy my soul--Can Emma handle being put back together and facing who she's become because of it?

Hundreds of years into the future mankind has gone under-ground to relocate to Epsilon; a beautiful city run by a strong, secretive government that keeps its citizens in check by subtle manipulation and strict schedules.

In his dreams a man named Harry dies. ALN-896 shrugs this off as if nothing has happened. It was only a dream. The next day, however, he is suddenly arrested and sent to prison for killing Harry. Now inside prison, ALN-896 begins to learn about what the government of Epsilon has been doing and he plans on escaping. Not only from prison, but from Epsilon. This one decision turns him against everything he has ever known and forces him to face against centuries of lies. To escape means to live, but what will it cost?

My Thoughts:

This is a book I would like to see made as a movie, it had everything I enjoy from a book and a lot more. I liked Alan’s character, although at the start he was exactly the same as everybody else in Epsilon. He started being really likable in the prison, claiming his innocence but the after lots of epic dreams he starts doubting his innocence. I was glad the woman in the pink polka dot dress was explained and she wasn’t just a person that died in a fire.
The book was intense especially when the gruesome games of death at the prison happened and the prison officers would think nothing of killing a prisoner just because they could.

Fantastic book, well written and a joy to read.

Zoe and Zak Ghost Leopard Book Review

150dpi_GHostLeopardFrontCover-RGBv3FINAL     Synopsis Imagine you're totally lost in a strange city with no idea where you are and no way home. Now imagine that elephants and snake charmers start telling you that you've been chosen to save the world. Would you even believe them? What would you do? Zoe Guire isn't sure. Having that elephant talk to her was really weird, and, as a rule, Zoe doesn't do weird. Except the thing is, when Zoe goes along on her mom's business trip to India, things get very weird, very quickly. Soon after she arrives, Zoe finds herself tagging alongside a kid named Zak, lost in a crazy city, with no money and no way home. And those are the least of Zoe's troubles. Because if she's to believe the scary-looking snake charmer guy sitting in the corner, she and Zak have been chosen -- chosen to protect some kind of mythical animal called the Ghost Leopard from who knows what. Now, the further they get into the mountains, the more crazily impossible things get. Carpets fly and statues talk and if either Zoe or Zak want to make it back to their parents, or the sixth grade, or anything even close to normal, they're going to have to make some new friends, learn some new tricks, and listen, really listen to that talking elephant. Because if they don't, the world will never be the same again. Join Zoe and Zak as they journey high into the Himalayas to a place few have been and even fewer have returned to tell about it. Live life beyond the edge. Purchase Zoe & Zak and the Ghost Leopard at Amazon Review When Zoe goes to India with her mother, she thinks its the best thing to happen to her. Little does she realise how true this will be. When she meets Zak a boy from school there and her life takes a very adventurous turn. Zoe and Zak are opposite poles – Zoe is scared of doing anything dangerous, Zak is ready to try anything. It is targeted to children 10+ and I can understand how popular this book will be. There is everything a child would want to read about magic, adventure and fantasy. Simply written, the book flows well. Since it has both Zoe and Zak it will appeal to both boys and girls alike. There is also information on the culture and food of India and this helps to add a bit of fact to the otherwise fictitious book. I enjoyed it and am sure it will appeal to both children and adults alike.

Belong To You Book Review


Title: Belong To You
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Romance-Erotica
Publish Date: April 4, 2013

My honeymoon was almost everything I dreamed it would be, a tropical paradise, turquoise water, romantic walks on the beach, and loads and loads of mind shattering sex. The only thing missing was the groom. After seven years of coasting through a relationship with Michael, my senses were numb. A week of passion with a stranger was just what I needed to clear my head and take back control of my life. But how do you move on when the man that was only supposed to be a fling somehow seeps into your soul and steals your heart?


Love at first touch? When Sydney goes on her honeymoon alone she meets Jack. They spend a wonderful week together and it is all hot between the sheets. When they leave Hawaii they think they will never see each other but are in for a big surprise.
Sydney finds that Jack is now her boss and this adds a new dimension to the relationship. Here is where I felt the similarity to other romance novels.
A good read and great for a holiday read. The ends leaves one wanting more so I will definitely read the next book in the series.
If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey, you will definitely like this one!
The book is available for sale

Purchase price $3.99
