Look at me I'm on a roll today! Second review in....well I didn't really keep track of time considering I'm still stuffing my face. HEY IT'S THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING SO DON'T JUDGE ME!!!! Now as I was saying, the next person up on my list of people to rave about happens to be Nevea Lane (or as I like to call her 'Techy' because chick is a tech genius. I'm talking Geek Squad status. Calm down that was a compliment) Now Nevea is known for her...shall we call them escapades? I think we shall since I might end up hearing a story that I don't wanna hear if I call her...escapades anything other than escapades. Anyways back to the subject at hand. Nevea's tales never disappoint and this one didn't either. I think I will deem this a modern day fairytale complete with a Knight In Shining Armor who just happens to come with a sexy Romanian accent and an instant attraction to our heroine Ronni Cadell. When Ronni's business takes a nosedive she has corporate raiders knocking at her door quicker than she can say "Coo coo cachoo" along with the corporate raiders she has a mother that just won't knock off trying to get her married off and knocked up (yeah the word play there is pretty clever eh? I like to toot my own horn from time to time.) In comes Mr. Lucian Covaci, he's tall, dark, handsome and (wait for it, wait for it) Interested in getting a piece of Ronni's business. He has every intention of doing just that until he shows up at her charity event and lays eyes on the beauty. From there he finds himself free falling and unable to stop it. Under the pretenses of taking a tour of her company, something he wins at the charity auction, Lucian goes out of his way just to get closer to Ronni. The question is will Ronni accept the sexy Romanian's advances or rebuff him after finding out what he was originally intrigued by? I wish I could answer that folks but you have to read the story and find out for yourself. I read, I find out and now I'm sitting here trying to figure out exactly what I have to do to get myself a Lucian. Maybe Techy knows some people who know some people (shrug) I shall ask. In the meantime (wait for it, wait for it) GO GET THE DAMN BOOK.
http://janeteckford.blogspot.com and read through her Halloween extravaganza. Be warned, it is not for the faint of heart people. Besides her ability to make creepy stories EXTREMELY creepy (don't worry that's a compliment that she'll take and probably do that really scary evil laugh to. Trust me. I heard that laugh) Janet is a master at pulling you into whatever world she has created so do yourself a favor and...(oh ya'll knew this was coming) BY THE DAMN BOOK!

Okay so we all know Nikki's biased when it comes to her Twin. (Yes I admit that) But see I wouldn't be biased if said Twin wasn't so damn good at bringing a story to life. Since I have first hand knowledge from working with her (Look Twin I'm about to plug "Talking Dirty") after our amazing work on our first duo together in our book "Talking Dirty" I know for a fact how much she puts into a story. HER ALL PEOPLE. HER ALL. I watched this work come to life for her and though at times she felt discouraged or that she couldn't get it right I and a few others were there to stick our collective foot in her ass to get her started again. I love my sister. ADORE HER but if a story she wrote sucked I'd tell her. This is soooooo not one of those times. No this time people I'm taking you deep into the mind of Drea Riley (Since I'm here mini I can do that because I know her and whatnot.) Let's get started shall we?
I love my romances. The ones that make you sigh or tear up every so often because they're just that sweet, just that heart warming. Well Drea is damn good at bringing that to the table and she more than brought it with "Once and Again." Trapped in a cosmic romance that literally crosses dimensions the love is so deep between these two, James and Antoinette have been set to repeat their lives and cross paths in many different lands, cultures, and races until their destiny to be together is fulfilled. Now folks I dunno about you but this sounds damn good. They repeat this cycle until finally they end up in present day when Antoinette--now a contractor--is hired by James to work on his old plantation home that he desperately wants renovated. The attraction is instant but delayed because neither likes the acute sense of Deja Vu they get while near the other. Sadly for them the Mississippi heat and a certain cosmic world jumping meddling old friend by the name of Beau won't let them avoid what's transpiring for long. All I have to say folks that if you want a well thought out story executed with the skill of an NY best seller's list type of author than this is the book for you. There are moments in here where Drea takes you into their souls so deep, their memories from previous lives, their underlying love for one another that you'll have to pause a minute and go "Damn that's genius." (Shrug) That's my personal opinion and yes I've admitted to be biased but I'm telling you from experience that I ain't never (Yeah it was serious enough for me to use ain't) had a story take me to the place where I want the type of love that transcends time and place, surpasses cosmic levels and makes me wanna find that special someone very soon. Do yourself a favor. GET THE DAMN
