My review of Evil Awakened by J.M. Leduc

Pamoon is a white girl who was raised by the Cree. Soon after her adoptive mother, Kamenna, dies an evil demon is somehow brought into this realm and Pamoon is the key to getting rid of it.

With help from Chief White Eagle, Powan - the tribe's spiritual leader, her aunt Nuna, and her friend Tikh she must decipher all the writing and clues that have been left for her and how to defeat the evil.

But the longer Pamoon struggles with her own identity and destiny, the more powerful that Kanontsistonties becomes. Can Pamoon overcome her self doubts and defeat the evil that is lurking with the Misty Woods?

I really enjoyed this book but I wish Pamoon had been born a Cree. Part of me cringed with a white girl coming in to rescue the Cree just due to all of the racial issues these days but that being said I really did enjoy the book.

I found sometimes the names were a little confusing and I thought it was ironic that the trouble making boys all had "white names" where as everyone else had more traditional names. I'm not too sure what the reasoning was behind that. 

I liked Pamoon and thought she was a strong character who was raised by strong Cree. I also really liked the tie she had with her animal spirit and how that how evolved and helped her in her battle. She had a lot to deal with mentally with everything she was up against and all of the unknown factors.

I also really liked all of the supporting characters that were helping her with her journey and how Chief White Eagle and Powan really supported her and let her know the truth about what they knew about everything. I also really liked Ayas and his somewhat dual roles and I hope he is able to go to the Creator and ask for help.

The ending left me with a OMG moment as I had no clue that another book was coming but I was super happy that Ayas was there.

4 Stars

Teaser for TEMPTING SOPHIA by Jessica Prince

Tempting Sophia, an all-new romantic standalone from Jessica Prince is coming November 2nd!  



Having my heart broken once was enough to make me give up on the idea of love all together. Instead of searching for The One I decided to embrace variety and turn by back on monogamy. I made a living convincing women they didn’t need a man to feel complete.
And I totally rocked at it.
Until the man who shattered my happily ever after came waltzing back into my life, determined to make me fall for him all over again.
He claims that I’m the love of his life. He wants a second chance, and it seems like he’ll stop at nothing to tempt the hell out of me. But if Dominic Abbatelli thinks he can win me back with his puppy dog eyes, heartfelt apologies, and declarations of love then he’s...probably right.

Blog Tour - In Too Deep by Jordan Marie















I did a bad thing.

I did a really bad thing.

I’m not a bad person, I swear. I just made a few mistakes.

Mistake number one was agreeing to rent my hotel out to an insufferable a**hole, named Aden Smith­.

Mistake number two was ignoring his threats to sue me when he handed over a list of items he deemed “unacceptable”.

Mistake number three was diving into the pool to save his life when he fell. It would have been less complicated to hide his body.

When the hospital refuses to let me know how he is, I panic.

Claiming to be his wife might be my biggest mistake yet—especially when he believes me!

He might have been the one drowning, but I’m sinking in a bed of lies, going down fast—and there’s not a rescue in sight.



Aden
I planned to apologize. Really—I did. I was dreading it. In my experience when you apologize to a woman you show them weakness, and with weakness they smell blood. It never ends well. Still, I shouldn’t have said what I did about her. I was going to the office to say I’m sorry, see if there was literature about where I can find a place with take-out food and leave—quickly.
One thing stops me.
I open the door to the office and this small boy comes running out at me, completely naked. He slaps his hands against my legs, just reaching above my knee. I stop quickly so I don’t plow him over.
“You my Daddy?” he asks. I know nothing about kids, but I do know one of the last things I ever want to hear from one are those words. His question strikes fear in my heart, but the fact his hands are covered in some dark brown unknown substance terrifies me. I watch as it smears across the legs of my favorite jeans. I’m not sure what it is, but he’s not wearing any clothes—including a diaper. Do kids his size wear diapers?
“Jack! You get back here right now young man!”
“Daddy!”
The child screams the name like it’s being torn from his heart, the moment White’s cousin captures him in her arms and pulls him away. The scream is so piercing I wince.
“Do you need something?” she asks over the noise. Her face instantly hardens, whereas just a moment ago she was smiling, even chasing after her son.
“Does he belong to you?” I ask, all thoughts of giving an apology gone. My voice is that of a growl really. It seems this woman brings out the worst in me.
“I—”
“He destroyed my clothes.”
Her eyes go round and briefly I notice she has brown eyes…almost as dark as whatever the child rubbed all over me.
“Daddy!” he screams again, and the woman’s face blushes a deep red.
“Hush, Jack. That’s not your Daddy,” she hisses.
“He doesn’t know who his father is?” I don’t bother keeping the censure out of my voice. This entire revelation doesn’t surprise me. I’m making a mental note to punch White in the face the next time I see him.
“It’s just chocolate. It will come out of your pants. You should probably flush it with club soda or…”
“Do I look like I do laundry?”
“Well—”
“Does your hotel even have laundry service?”
“There’s a laundry mat in town,” she says defensively.
“Charming.”
“Daddy!” the child screams again.
“Listen, Jack and I were—”
“Wrestling in chocolate?”
“Is there something you need?” she all but growls, her face tight with irritation.
