Call of the Kami by Teresa Garcia (Review By Jaime C)

**Review By Jaime C For The Nerd Girl Page**

*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.*

This is an excellent look into the myths and legends of the Japanese culture. Through Ms. Garcia’s writing you stroll through the world of a beautiful culture told through poetry and prose. Beautifully written and very fascinating. Teresa Garcia has a wonderful storytelling voice and you can really hear it through this book. I would recommend this and her other stories to anyone.

Calculated by R.S. Novelle (Review By Julie)

***Review By  Julie  For The Nerd Girl Page ***

***I received this book from the author in exchange for a review.***

I was pleasantly surprised by Calculated by R.S. Novelle. It is a very suspenseful story with a lot of action and some incredible twists. Absolutely no summary here because it would ruin the suspense! You just have to read the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this page turner about a female journalist who exposes local crime and corruption. I hope that Girl Friday, Ana, will be back for more adventures. If you’re a fan of whodunits, you will want to add this book to your library

Memoirs of a Succubus by Lillian MacKenzie Rhine (Review by Michele)

081-??Sozaijiten-????

***Review From Michele For The Nerd Girl Page ***

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.**

Natalya Hart is a women that gets everything she sexually desires and has no regrets about it. She has an insatiable sexual appetite and will be with whoever she feels can fill it! What Natalya does not know though is why she is like the way she is, but she will soon find out.

Memoirs of a Succubus was a wonderful, steamy and very quick read. The sexual scenes are very hot, heavy, steamy and very very detailed (which to me makes a very great story).

This book grabbed my attention from the first page to the last. Lillian MacKenzie Rhine keep up the wonderful steamy works of art

***Review From Tara For The Nerd Girl Page***

** I received an ARC of this book, from the author, in exchange for an honest review **

Synopsis:

Keeping her loud, redneck family in line for seventeen years has been no easy feat for Charlie Davies, but she’s managed to carve out a life for herself in the quiet crazy of her hometown. That is, until her baby sister announces she’s marrying a country-club boy from the bright lights of Dallas. Charlie’s got two months to defeat her sister’s she-demon Maid of Honor, keep her cousins from ruining the nuptials, and decide whether her one-time, one-night stand Alex Ramirez is worth a second chance.

Alex has thought of almost nothing but Charlie for two years, since the morning he woke up alone in her empty hotel room. Her sister’s upcoming wedding to his best friend seems like the perfect opportunity to reconnect with the girl who got away, but he underestimates her pull on him and soon finds himself torn between love and duty.

With the wedding fast approaching, Alex and Charlie’s relationship will be put to the test. Hillbillies, debutantes, and the old southern divide of rich and poor threaten… Continue reading

It didn’t matter that the ref called it a clean hit.  Nico Hunter would never be the same.

 

Elle has a good life.  A job she loves, a great apartment, and the guy she’s been dating for more than two years is a catch and a half.  But it’s boring…and she strives to keep it that way.  Too many emotions are dangerous.  Her own past is living proof of what can happen when you lose control.

 

Then Nico walks into Elle’s office and everything changes…for both of them.  But what can the tattooed, hard-bodied MMA fighter and the beautiful and always steady attorney have in common?  A lot more than they bargained for.
