INTRODUCTION

Hi everyone My name is Victoria Zumbrum, 40 years old, married 14 years with 1 son. This is my very first blog. So bear with me. I have always wanted to have my own blog. I have always loved to read. I enjoy getting lost in a good book.
I love becoming part of the story and characters. I am hoping to bring my love of books to my readers.

I love reading different genres such as paranormal, young adult, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, Christian fiction, some horror, etc. The list goes on. I started reviewing books a couple of years ago and have done reviews for different blogs and even some authors. I really have enjoyed reviewing books and I will continue to do so. If anyone is interested in me reviewing a book for them, please contact me. I still have a lot to learn regarding my own blog so bear with me. I welcome and appreciate all followers.

Defiant Attraction by V.K. Torston








Twisting the tray from side to side breaks the ice with a satisfying crack. I've almost gone so far as to pour water into my glass before I stop. Memories from last night surface and I recall sitting up in bed picking popcorn out of my bra.

Dan is wearing elastic-waist pajamas. I can see the edge of his boxer-briefs peeking out of the top but their waistline is much the same scenario. Everything has been so relaxed today. He's perfectly content—humming to himself!—while he finishes scrubbing the sink. He would never see it coming.

I pad softly across the linoleum, careful not to make a sound. The glass of ice waits poised in my hand. Dan finishes rinsing the sponge. In one fell swoop I wrench back a handful of pajama-and-boxer and let loose a frozen torrent.

Dan jumps, surprised, but he’s still reacting more to the grabbing than anything. While he knows something has happened, he doesn't yet know what.

I can't contain my devious grin while he searches my face. Then—there it is. A yelp, a jump, a shake. Cube after freezing cube tumbles from his pant legs. More yet are trapped inside his underwear. He hops from foot to foot and tries to push them out. Then he changes strategy.

“You little—”

“No!” I squeal, giggling wildly, and tear out of the kitchen.

I circle the table and he pauses just across its diameter. I try to feint left. He jerks then corrects his course and lunges. I backtrack.

We're stuck in a dead heat. A draw. One of us will have to make a break for it.

Throwing caution into the wind, I take off away from the table and leap over the couch. He struggles to follow my maneuver. Probably something to do with the glassful of ice melting in his underwear. I can't stop shrieking like a child and waving my hands like an idiot. If I don't make it to my room, he's going to tickle the fuck out of me.

My heart leaps as I crash through my door and tug it closed behind me. It stops short of snapping shut. One tattooed arm pries it open.

I jump back and seize a pillow from my bed like a shield. “No!”

Then the tickle-fingers. Just the sight of them breaks something inside me and I start laughing so hard I can’t breathe. Once, twice, three times I whack him with my pillow. He yanks it away and I trip backward onto my bed.

We land hard and he quickly takes both the figurative and literal upper hand. One knee wedges between my legs to keep me from kicking. His hands snatch my wrists in turn, pinning them above my head.

Dead heat. Stalemate. My armpits are terribly exposed but he can't tickle me as long as he's holding me down. My chest rises and falls as fast as my heartbeat. Desperate laughs push through my tight-pressed lips.

This close, his face a spare few inches from mine, I notice a field of freckles for the very first time. Light, almost invisible, they dust his nose and cheeks. Freckles don't seem like something Dan should have.

The lunatic laughter dies in my throat but my chest still rises and falls. A muscle in his jaw works. Green eyes dart rapidly between mine, thinking. About what, I’m not sure.

When we landed, his chest pressed down against mine. Now I feel his thin, worn sleeping t-shirt against my thin, worn sleeping t-shirt. No bra in between. On either side, only skin.

His hands, coiled around my wrists. My breasts, curving against his chest. Our lips, inches apart. This is starting to look like…something.

Our eyes stay locked. The longer we remain like this, the more the next movement matters. The stakes are shooting up. Maybe, if I could move, I could just tickle him back...

His knee shifts a fraction, hardly anything at all. Or maybe I imagined it. A rush of heat flows between my legs—so strong and so sudden I'm sure he could feel it. The fabric is so thin it might as well be bare skin. Goosebumps erupt down my arms. My nipples pull to points against him. He must feel them too.

I've been staring into his eyes so long…however long this has been—an infinity— and I mark their swift change. Something has happened there. Some choice, some determination...

Some noise rises from my throat. I'm not even sure if it was a sound or just a feeling, but I sense how it changed me. The space between us starts to close.

Executioners MC Series, book 2

by Kimmie Easley

Review of Something Wicked A Collection of Haunting Tales




Six haunting tales from award-winning and bestselling authors!

Aliens, monsters, zombies, and more, abound in this collection. A perfect read for those who love a good scare!

The stories:

Breeding Season - Josie Dorans

Lock Ridge has its secrets just like all small towns. Dark secrets like what happened to Ed Anderson on March 14th in the maintenance room down at the lock. Everyone makes sure to keep quiet and look away when one of those secrets tries to skitter into the light. But turning a blind eye isn't the solution when something unseen and barely believed takes control. As a nurse, Anne Woods knows that. What she doesn't know is if she'll be able to stop an infection unlike anything in the medical journals before it pulls her family and everyone else in the town down to the river where death awaits.



My Ragnorak - James Agee Jr.

In a society that clings to their viking heritage, the position of soothsayer is revered by all. However for Arne, life as the soothsayer's apprentice is harsh and trying. Faced with two horrific decisions, one must be made. Will he brave Ragnarok or face a personal Ragnarok of his own?



It Came From The Fifties - Paul Dellinger

Young Matthew grew up loving sci-fi comics and movies, even before it was fashionable. But when he grew up, those very tales led him to a terrifying revelation.



The Steel Heart - Layne Aust

Emilio has been driven to madness since the death of his love, Natalia. Stuck in his shop, the heartbroken man tries to recreate the beauty with steel and nails. But the blacksmith is awarded a second chance by a wayward witch who makes him a deal—one that could either reunite the lovers or keep them apart forever.



A Taste for Brains - Nicole Zoltack

All Dr. Eva Jonstone wants is to appreciate life. She’s dating another doctor and mostly enjoys her fulfilling but stressful job. But then her boyfriend, Leonard Jakox, fancies himself smart enough to cure gangrene. Unfortunately, he gives Eva gangrene and then tests his cure while she’s sleeping. Even worse, she then turns into a zombie. As Leo struggles to find a real cure, Eva struggles to maintain her humanity.



The Water Doesn’t Hurt - Kellie Honaker
Bindi Birmingham needed an escape. What better place than in a tiny cabin in a town called Vein River? All is peaceful until an old man warns her of a ghost haunting the covered bridge in front of her property. She scoffs at the idea until she sees the specter herself. Will she manage to break the curse or will she join countless others in the murky depths

Revelations
The
Aria Knight Chronicles Book 2
By
Alesha Escobar and Samantha Lafantasie
Genre:
Urban Fantasy, Paranormal

Magic
is dangerous, but secrets can kill...

Aria
Knight sees a light at the end of the tunnel as she sets out to
confront the powerful witch who turned her world upside down…her
mother. She must decide if the witch, Clare, truly wants to help her,
or drag her into a fate worse than death.





Darkness gathers
around Aria and her friends as rioting and assassination plots break
out in the streets of Miracle Falls. Her ally, Harry Storm, conceals
the truth about his powers while trying to keep it together long
enough to help, or else fall into an abyss of insanity. And Jacob
Wolfe, the man she yearns for, has little time for romance as he’s
stuck trying to prevent an all-out war on preternaturals.


Aria
knows that she must do her part to keep the peace, but it's difficult
when the conflict within her own family threatens to tear her down.
In liberating her only sibling from a magical prison, she finds that
she may have hastened the destruction of all sin eaters, including
herself.





REVELATIONS is the second book of the Aria Knight
Chronicles by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie, and
bestselling author of The Gray Tower Trilogy, Alesha Escobar.






Sin
Eater
The
Aria Knight Chronicles Book 1

Aria
Knight has an unusual set of skills: she will hold back the hounds of
Hell so you can fly toward the Pearly Gates, and she will wipe your
slate clean so that you don't become karma's bitch...for a price.





A
Sin Eater has to make a living in today's world somehow.

But
when she's called in the dead of night to perform her rite for a
recluse billionaire, she stumbles upon a murder scene, and the
evidence points to her.

In
an attempt to clear her name and uncover the true culprit, Aria is
forced to team up with a private investigator who's possessed by
three spirits, and a handsome wizard who would rather see all Sin
Eaters like Aria go extinct.

Aria
knows her job is never easy, but now it's become downright
deadly.

SIN
EATER is the first book of the Aria Knight Chronicles by USA Today
bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie and Alesha Escobar, author of
the bestselling Gray Tower Trilogy.






I’m
a caffeine addict and chocoholic who enjoys reading and writing
engaging stories, loveable (and not-so loveable) characters, and
expressing my creativity daily. I write fantasy with intriguing
characters, action-packed scenes, and always throw in a good dash of
humor and romance.
Science Fiction and Fantasy are
my favorite genres, but I also adore the classics (Shakespeare, Dante
Alighieri, etc.) and I have a soft spot in my heart for Victorian
poetry. You can geek out with me all-day every day over these
Some of my favorite contemporary
fantasy authors are George R.R. Martin, Robert Jordan (rest in
peace), J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher (Dresden Files made me
love Urban Fantasy), and Ilona Andrews among others. I enjoy movies
and shows like Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural, Arrow, The Flash, The
Avengers…there are too many to name!

graphic novels, please shoot a recommendation or two my way (I LOVE
the Hellblazer comics, by the way).

Review of Margie's Magic Christmas Bars by Laura Strickland




Margie’s mom taught her to bake, and to believe in Christmas magic. She also promised this would be the year Margie found love. When Margie draws the name of her office crush, Trent in the Secret Santa Pool, she decides to make it happen by baking him a batch of her irresistible Magic Christmas bars. But it’s Bryan, the new guy in the office, who falls under her spell.

Bryan doesn’t need any encouragement when it comes to Margie. From his first day on the job, he’s been captivated by her sweet nature and beautiful smile. Bryan can tell Margie only has eyes for Trent, but he recognizes Trent for what he is, a charming user likely to break Margie’s heart. Before that happens, he must make Margie see she’s closer to her Christmas miracle than she ever dreamed.

Review of Chrissy's Christmas Sugar Cookies by Angela Ford



Nicholas Reed arrives in the small town of Troy to acquire the Delbert farm for his investors. He hadn’t expected his competition to be a beautiful, confident woman. His heart takes control over his business-minded mission.

Christine Spencer is the owner of the coffee shop ‘Sugar N’ Spice’. She serves the best sugar and spice, and everything nice. Chrissy’s heart melts the first time she meets Nick. Then she discovers he’s the man that can destroy her dream to own the Delbert farm. His plan to bring in his investors for a viewing of the property would cancel her annual Christmas dance at the farm. He proposes a deal for her to date him for a week and he’ll stall his investors.

Can Nick convince her those first sparks they felt, are real?

Nothing like a little spice added to the holidays, unless someone ends up on the naughty list.

MY REVIEW:

WHEN NICHOLAS REED AND CHRISTINE SPENCER MEET FOR THE FIRST TIME, SPARKS FLY BETWEEN THEM.  CHRISTINE SPENCER IS THE OWNER OF THE COFFEE SHOP SUGAR N SPICE.  HER DREAM IS TO OWN THE DELBERT FARM.  WHEN CHRISTINE FINDS OUT THAT NICK IS OUT TO DESTROY HER DREAM, SHE WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM.  NICK THEN MAKES A DEAL WITH HER TO STALL THE INVESTORS SO SHE MAY HOLD THE DANCE AT THE FARM.  THE DEAL IS CHRISTINE MUST DATE NICK FOR A WEEK.  NICK IS OUT TO SHOW CHRISTINE ANOTHER SIDE OF HIM.  WILL NICK BE ABLE TO CONVINCE CHRISTINE THAT HE ISN'T THE MONSTER SHE THINKS HE IS?

CHRISSY'S CHRISTMAS SUGAR COOKIES IS A VERY ENTERTAINING AND ENJOYABLE READ.  I LOVED THE CHEMISTRY AND SPARKS FLYING BETWEEN SPENCER AND CHRISTINE.  IT WAS VERY BELIEVABLE AND REAL.  CHRISTINE WAS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT THE TOWN AND FARM.  I LOVED THAT PASSION AND HOW SHE NEVER GAVE UP ON HER DREAMS.  THIS WAS VERY ROMANTIC AND MAGICAL LOVE STORY WITH A SURPRISING TWIST.  

I REALLY ENJOY ANGELA FORD'S WRITING.  SHE MAKES YOU BELIEVE IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT AND TRUE LOVE.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU READ CHRISSY'S CHRISTMAS SUGAR COOKIES.  IT WAS VERY ENJOYABLE AND MAGICAL. 5 STARS

After being attacked in the parking lot of her San Antonio apartment complex, Amy fears all men. One day she stumbles upon Sawyer Creek. Using all her savings, she buys a small house and café and her Chicken Dorito Casserole becomes an all-time favorite among the community. After four years, the nightmares have stopped, but the panic attacks haven’t.


Christmas is four weeks off when the Sheriff calls saying a shovel hit the backdoor of her café, setting off the alarm. Vowing to never be a victim twice, she arms herself with the shovel only to learn that he’s been shot.


Can she help him despite her fear of men?




Margie's Magic Cookie Bars

Margie’s mom taught her to bake, and to believe in Christmas magic. She also promised this would be the year Margie found love. When Margie draws the name of her office crush, Trent in the Secret Santa Pool, she decides to make it happen by baking him a batch of her irresistible Magic Christmas bars. But it’s Bryan, the new guy in the office, who falls under her spell.



Bryan doesn’t need any encouragement when it comes to Margie. From his first day on the job, he’s been captivated by her sweet nature and beautiful smile. Bryan can tell Margie only has eyes for Trent, but he recognizes Trent for what he is, a charming user likely to break Margie’s heart. Before that happens, he must make Margie see she’s closer to her Christmas miracle than she ever dreamed.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
SHARON KLEVE









Sharon Kleve was born and raised in Washington and currently lives on the Olympic Peninsula with her husband.


Sharon is a multi-published author of contemporary romance. She loves romance. She loves reading romance, living romance, and especially loves writing about romance. She gets no greater feeling than watching her characters come alive in each other’s arms. Most of all, she loves giving her characters the happily ever after they deserve—with a few bumps and bruises along the way.


One of her favorite things to do is pick up a new book and sink into the story, immersing herself in the emotions between the characters. She hopes to inspire her readers the same way her favorite authors have inspired her.

 When not writing, she can usually be found either curled up in her recliner with her cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
TAMMY TATE













Tammy Tate was born and raised in Hollywood, Florida but has lived most of her adult life in Texas. Her passion to write began in high school. It follows her everywhere she goes...creating a world where anything is possible. She's been married to the same wonderful man for over thirty years. Her secret to a long marriage? It's easy when you marry your best friend. In her world, Friday night is still date night.


Before she became a full-time author, she was an Executive Secretary, a Computer Consultant/Technician, and a Communications Officer (Police Dispatcher). She doesn't mind a challenge which has allowed her to race a late-model in a women's powder puff race, run barrels and poles in a play-day rodeo and drive an 18-wheeler. Somewhere in between, she and her husband raised three wonderful children. When she's not breathing life into her characters or jotting down ideas for a new book, she is most likely spending quality time with her husband or curled up with a good book.


Since she believes reading is the next best thing to writing, she enjoys romance, fantasy, science fiction and thrillers. In December of 2013, she signed her first book contract with a traditional publisher. Her books have made Amazon's Best Seller list.
