Day 7 of my Indie Book Advent features Train to the Edge of the Moon by Asper Blurry.

32812608Punk is no ordinary girl who takes the life as it is. She has a nasty habit of getting in troubles, she shows the middle finger to people’s prejudice and stupidity, fights against her broken identity and the corporation where she works. She always goes against the stream with her heavy, tight shoes, but still tries to be a better person. Punk’s adventurous journey to become a poet starts in a Place Without a Name, continues in Italy and London. Her train is full of laughs, reflections, modern tales about our young lives and relationships and occasional heartbreaks. You will probably love and hate Punk at the same time, but it will be difficult to forget about her wild side of the moon.

Review: Make My Wish Come True by Jade Cooper

monthly-reads-roundup3

Make My Wish Come True by Jade Cooper 3/5

15356000_1354214304629983_1522282279_n.jpgIt’s Christmas Eve and Livy’s hoping for a little Christmas Magic. She makes her wish and goes to bed alone. But Christmas morning may be a long way off. It just so happens that someone else is wishing for the same thing. There’s a blizzard outside but inside Quinn McGrath’s Irish Manor, the fire is roaring. Together, their wish has been heard.

What happens next is nothing short of naughty magic with all the trimmings of a warm and fuzzy romance. It’s not every year that Christmas magic lands Livy in the bed of a hot Celt who wants nothing more than to dominate her into sexual bliss.

** This book contains strong sexual content and is intended for mature audiences only**

I downloaded this novella for free from Amazon Kindle.

Review:

Shy Livy works in marketing and is single at Christmas. She wishes for someone to spend the holiday season with. A bizarre dream and Christmas magic sees her transported to another lost soul, Quinn. Together they see in Christmas in steamy, raunchy style.

The story starts in the usual cliched way- bored, lonely Livy working in a job she doesn’t like, wishing for more out of life, and dreaming on Mr Perfect. Very quickly the magic happens- literally. Livy hears the pleads of a man in her dreams and she answers him. What happens next throws the book through a loop. Christmas magic is involved in seeing her wish answered.

I would have liked a little more explanation about the weird transportation, but none is offered. Steamy sex pursues and pretty much fills the rest of the book. The ending is sweet, but lacking a little, hence my 3 stars. Does Livy stay? Does she get transported home? I am interested in knowing more.

Review: Christmas at Pebble Creek by Vannetta Chapman

monthly-reads-roundup3

Christmas at Pebble Creek by Vannetta Chapman 3/5

15281997_1353031404748273_791359958_nThis short story e-romance is an exclusive bonus from The Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman. Fans of the series will enjoy this chance to briefly revisit Pebble Creek, and new readers will be introduced to an Amish community that is more deeply explored in the three full novels, A Promise for Miriam, A Home for Lydia, and A Wedding for Julia.
As a bonus, this eBook also includes Amish homestyle recipes for chicken and dumplings, green beans, and fresh bread. Heavy snow blankets the southwestern Wisconsin Amish community as nineteen-year-old Grace Miller closes the schoolhouse for Christmas break. She’s looking forward to having extra time to help the family prepare for the holiday, and she is hoping to get a few more drawings in of the beautiful, snowy Pebble Creek landscape. Her courtship with Adam Lapp is going on six months, and Grace can’t wait to give him his present: a blue-and-brown buggy blanket she crocheted for him. Yes, this Christmas is going to be especially joyful. Yet, amid the cheer of snowshoe outings, church potlucks, and holiday festivities, Grace is given a bittersweet reminder of the Christmas story. Grief is present with celebration, and though the future is rarely certain, she is given a heartwarming glimpse that God knows our needs before we do and will provide.

I downloaded this book for free from Amazon Kindle.

Review:

I have not read the Pebble Creek series, so I went into this ebook with fresh eyes. This is a very short read, and as I am unfamiliar with the Amish lifestyle, I did enjoy reading the certain language differences and cultural differences, even if some of those cultural differences are not what I agree with.  A little more backstory would help readers who are new to Grace’s story.

It was a pleasant read. There was nothing that overly stood out for me, and nothing that I particularly disliked about it. It is well written and edited, but it is simply not to my reading interest.
