Negotiations by Vivien Jackson

Stuck in Barstow with car trouble is not the place to be on a carefree weekend. Greg begins to care a bit more after meeting his mechanic, Lindsay.  Just enough axle grease and a sweet ride of her own, to show off; Greg’s weekend turns out to be more than he bargained for. And there is more bargaining to do.

I have to admit that I am not a gear head. I don’t know a camshaft from a transmission.  I do however know how to call a tow truck, an auto shop and get a good deal. But this guy makes me look bad. Not only did he get great sex with a super hot woman; he also got his car fixed, all in one evening. That is freaking awesome.

Now there were a few things that I didn’t like, because I didn’t understand it all, car talk. I had to look up the car and get a good idea of what I was imagining. But once I did I could see the beauty in it. Though I think I t would be hard for the average reader to. This being the age of instant gratification, they are not going to be curious and look it up.

I do hope she writes more of the adventures of Greg. He really seems like the kind of guy that just likes to have fun. But maybe with a companion or best friend to make it really interesting. *wink wink* *nudge nudge*



“Lindsay looked vaguely surprised for a moment, but then she smiled, slow and knowing. And then, very deliberately, her gaze dropped, settling in somewhere south of Greg’s belly button. Her eyebrows hitched up, and she parted her lips. “Depends on how fast you want it done.” Greg swallowed. Whoa. Did she mean what he thought she meant? She couldn’t, she wouldn’t, and yet…    

“Sometimes it’s better if these things are done slow and right,” he said.   
Lindsay’s grin widened. “I agree totally. Step on into my office, and we can work up some figures.”

The Amazon’s Curse

by Gena Showalter

short Novella Ebook only



This book was exclusive to Amazon via Kindle users (at the time) I bought this book. It was a quick read and really added to the conclusion to the ending of The Vampires Bride, book four of the Atlantis series.

Zane, a fierce vampire warrior, has been enslaved by the Amazons. Nola, a lovely Amazon soldier, has been cursed with invisibility.  Now, these two stubborn enemies must overcome the pasts that haunt them and embrace a love that can set them free…

I really enjoyed this short book, well novella, not really a book length book. As I was saying, this was a great story. It had the closure we needed with Zane and Nola. We found out what happened after the end of book 4 and what might happen with book 5. (I find it hard to discuss this without giving away spoilers from the previous books. Its beginning to sound like I am a mafia man trying not to say too much, sigh.) So, like I was saying its a good quick read. Maybe a bag of popcorn and a soda but that would be all. Its not too dramatic but has lots of emotion and compassion, which the Amazon women are not really known for. So drop by Amazon or where ever ebooks are sold and pick this one up. It won’t be available in print format until May 2010 in the book INTO THE DARK. Which will also have two other of Gena’s short novels in it. Darkest Prison and Darkest Fire.
