I use to read all paperbacks and hard cover books , then about 1 1/2 yrs ago I bought a Nook Color E -Reader and things have not been the same since . In the first yr of owning my Nook I read roughly about 200 Books . YES it is true . My E- Reader was the best thing I EVER bought for myself and I am so Happy that I made the decision to buy one . Now I own a Kindle Fire HD and I Love it even more then my Nook Color. As far as What I like to read . I like All kinds of Genres . Some of my favorite ones are Contemporary Romance , Young Adult , Paranomal , True Stories, and Erotica . To me a great book involves a Great story line , if A book can hook me in the first few pages I am in heaven and will read it through . I have not found many books that I have not followed through with and read . I do LOVE a great love story in a book , one that makes me smile , laugh when something is funny , makes my heart race, my heart stop , makes me cry . I love when there is a happy ending . I also love Alpha males , the ones that got attitude , hot looking, masculine , can keep their woman in line , protective , possessive , but also have a big heart at the same time .
Hell, Fire & Freedom (Fighting for Freedom, #1) - Shannon Callahan I had the privilege of being asked by Shannon to read and review this book . This is her Debut Novel.This book was Hot, Suspenseful, You all need to Meet Blaze. Brynn lives her life married to an abusive husband, all to hopefully give her sister a better life. At the age of 17 she agreed to marry Carl because he promised to provide food and pay the bills for her sister and mother. She lives a secluded life with Carl not allowed to see anyone or have any friends. Carl has been abusive to her since the beginning, but one day he takes things to far and Brynn Decides it is time to get her sister and escape. I held my breathe through the entire escape, I kept thinking Carl was going to catch her and she would not get away. It was pretty intense. Brynn sells off her jewelry and gets her sister Marie from school and board a plane to New York. once in New York they find a woman's shelter and they get the help they need to get an apartment, job, and get Marie into school. Brynn meets Blaze at the local coffee shop and there is a spark there between them. Blaze has fallen and fallen fast for Brynn and he sets out to learn more about her. Blaze was Hot, sexy, (after all he is a fireman). he was sweet, caring. slowly he builds trust with Brynn and their relationship starts to develop. It is not easy though, Brynn Does not trust men. She is afraid to get close to Blaze, but her body has other ideas. Shannon did a great job with writing this story, she build up the characters at the same time built up the relationship between Brynn and Blaze. There is an Epilogue, There will be more from the other characters in the book in future books in this series. Marie will get her own Book as well as Lana. I can not wait to read more from Shannon.
