The child called and screamed and yelled foe Bart the dinosaur to come back home. Nothing works so the child has to get creative. He uses food to get Bart back in his gate.

     Such a fun read for children as they  hear all the chaos the dinosaur is causing. They shout ideas on how to capture Bart.

Lost Coast Rocket (Mare Tranquillitatis #1) by Joel Horn

      Ken and his friends are highly intelligent kids. More than even their parents suspected. Each spent their days bored at school. They began to congregate at Ken's house. His grandfather had passed away and left Ken all of his tools and such. The kids would wile away hours at a time with these tools in the workshop. None of the parents really understand what they are building in the workshop but overall the kids were well behaved and gave them no reason to worry. At least they didn't believe they had.

     This book is very well written and plotted. It's characters are well fleshed out.  I found the story to be unique and engaging. The story is easy to follow and you'll be telling friends and family about it. Mr. Horn is quite the storyteller. He knows how to pull you into his world and keep you there until the story is over. It's a talent all authors strive for but few end up with. Get your copy today!

     I found no issues here.

      I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because the story is such a rare one.

      Charlie Truganini came from a long line of the finest trackers. Charlie's one goal was to find the last Tasmanian Tiger. Everyone told Charlie the Tasmanian Tiger was extinct. He didn't believe they were. It's the reason he kept such a close eye on the tracks in the area. If anyone could find the tiger, Charlie could.

     This book is cleverly written and the topic interesting and exciting. The characters are well defined and like-able. The tale enclosed in this book will keep you wondering about the Tasmanian Tiger. I found the book to be a fun read and educational. I learned things I didn't know about. It's a powerful story and one your preteen will enjoy.

      Ken had so much on his mind. Between the work he was doing presently and his secret from the past, it was too much.  He began working on The Phoenix Egg. This was his secret project. He'd be able to explore space and maybe answer some questions about it. Ken would also be able to bury his secret and broken heart forever.  He told himself  this wasn't the reason for the trip, but deep inside he knew better.

     This complex book sends a really basic message to the reader. You can't run from your past. Even in space.  This book is extremely well written and has wonderful characters as well. You will enjoy each of the characters and appreciate how they came to be friends.  These young people have well above average intelligence and use it to help others.

Submissive Angel: A BDSM Romance Novella by Joey W. Hill

      Robert gets through each day the best he can. His heart had frozen after the loss of both parents and his lover. His only joy, his store. At this point in his life, Robert knew he'd never fall in love again. Then one evening as he was taking out the store's trash, he found a man huddled behind the dumpster.  It was obvious he'd been in a fight. Blood was everywhere. As Robert looked again, he saw a very handsome younger man.  He helped the man into the store and cleaned him up, then offered him a job.  Christmas this year would be different. Wouldn't it?

     This book is absorbing. The characters three dimensional.  Ms. Hill will have you reaching for the tissues again and again. The true human emotions included in this book are refreshing. It catches you off guard and then softly hits the heart. There is no escaping  the love between these two men. I found myself being cradled by the story during the most intense parts. Other times, I'm reveling with Robert.  Usually, based on the book's title, you'd believe it's just about sex, no true story. It's for this reason the story captures your heart. You're gonna love this book. 

     I didn't find any issues.

      I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because of the tenderness and care with which the story is told.

Broken Pieces by Danielle Sibarium

      Nothing is worse than being bullied. Damian had a lifetime of experience with it. He was the one bullied.  No matter what he did, he couldn't shake the bullies and no one in a position of authority would help Damian.  Tanner, Bianca and Damian attended high school together.  This allowed the bullying to continue long after graduation.  Damian would give his life protecting Bianca.  They'd soon find out how true that statement was. Nothing is as everyone believes, or is it?

     Bold and powerful opening is where we start with this book. A bully we've all witnessed and injustices that can accompany those situations. This book is brilliantly written and the plotting is flawless. Characters you will love and hate round out this book. Intense scenes will make you love these characters even more. Ms. Sibarium keeps the action going from page one. She knows just how to hook the reader and take them on the journey that is this book. Ms. Sibarium is gifted in the art of storytelling and you'll feel it as you stroll through the story. She should be an auto buy for you! I know she is for me.

     I found no issues with this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because you will carry this book with you for a good while.
