Me Tarzan


Me Tarzan, You Jane by Camelia Miron Skiba
Moving on doesn’t always have to mean goodbye.
Widowed makeup artist Jane Sullivan is more comfortable keeping her husband’s memory alive than dating a pool full of sharks. Ella, her 4 year-old daughter, is her whole world.
When Jane meets Lucas Oliver, famous cover model, it’s hate at first sight. His playboy persona rubs her the wrong way.
Accustomed to every woman fawning over him, Lucas is drawn to the shy, uncompromising single mom and completely melts at the sight of Ella. He is determined to convince Jane that sometimes a second chance can mend a broken heart.

~~Rae's Review~~
Just in time for the days of romance! I adore this cover so much and the blurb really caught my attention. Kathy over at IamAReader gave a content warning with this book so I knew it wasn't exactly a squeaky clean. I liked Jane at first when she sized over the models and gave some snarky yet funny comments. Lucas kind of got on my nerves and didn't quite endear me to him until we got to know him a little better later. Unfortunately, I had a bit of a tough time getting into it. It was a cute, fun and light read no doubt, but something about the characters made it tough for me to completely lose myself in their story. Lately, I've been immersed back into fantasy reading so it could be a case of dining on one meal while craving another. I'm definitely going to try Ms. Skiba's books when I swing back to reading contemporary romance.
For fans of light hearted romance with some comedy on the side (who don't like exactly squeaky clean romance books), you'll want to give Me Tarzan You Jane a read!

The Awakening (YA Fantasy) by Dorine White ~ An Excerpt

Check out this special excerpt from author Dorine White's YA Fantasy 'The Awakening'!



~Excerpt~


Darcy
 The night grew darker as a storm cloud passed over the moon. Darcy and Kyler backed up toward Henry, carrying Ralph’s body. They were almost halfway across the clearing when Henry screamed.
            “Look out! It’s above you!”
Dropping Ralph to the ground, Darcy and Kyler took up defensive positions back-to-back, her with her sword and him with his staff. They fearfully looked toward the sky. Darcy could make out the outline of a great beast hovering above the ground, watching their rescue attempt. The Griffin let out a mighty shriek and charged. Its powerful body streaked downward, it sharp claws extended to rend flesh.
“Henry,” yelled Kyler. “Cover Ralph.”
As the monster approached, Darcy lashed out with her sword, aiming for its underbelly. Kyler ended up deflecting a claw that had been intent on ripping his eyes out. Together they managed to keep the Griffin from landing. Swinging with all her strength, Darcy sliced into the monster, leaving a trail of blood dripping from its hind leg. Henry ran into the fray, taking up a protective position over Ralph’s unconscious body while Darcy kept up her attack. She swung and thrust her sword, forcing the beast back, until it found ground enough to face her.
With a berserk holler, Kyler swung his staff at the beast, knocking it a stinging blow to the head. Unbalanced from Darcy’s attacks, the Griffin flew backward and landed with a loud crash on its nest. Darcy and Kyler took up defensive stances across from the wrecked nest as the Griffin slowly regained its footing, ruffling its feathers in irritation. The beast eyed both its young attackers, anger flashing in its green eyes.
Darcy watched the Griffin approach, and gave Kyler a cautious look.
“Back me up,” she said through gritted teeth.






The Awakening by Dorine WhiteThe Awakening by Dorine White
Nightmares really do come true, and for fifteen-year-old Kyler Birkwood, they are just beginning. Raised on a farm by his Aunt Martha, Kyler has no clue about the magical heritage swimming through his blood. When he discovers evidence of a mythical creature, a terrifying beast thought only to exist in fairy tales, his safe world shatters.

Left at a school of magic to hunt for clues, he is overwhelmed and disbelieved. As loved ones begin disappearing and Orcs roam the land, Kyler must undergo a journey that takes him from the High Courts of the King to the unknown forests of the East. His magic just awakening, Kyler is the lone hope for a world that will not listen.
