VBT# Misplaced - Lee Murray


Review: Misplaced - Lee Murray - December 2013

Do you remember reading stories of people who pop out for a second to grab something or go for a drive and just vanish into thin air? We think about how on earth this could actually happen and wouldn't somebody spot them or find their body ? How could someone completely vanish from our lives ? 
Misplaced is a story of one boy's journey and the year that will follow him , a year of distraught, confusion and anguish as for Adam - his mother popped out to go to the local dairy and never came home. The novel chronicles Adam and his family's reactions , his friendships and how life can change drastically in a blink of an eye. What I liked about Misplaced was that thank goodness Adam still had his two best friends Kieran and Corey to rely on and that no matter what happened they were there for him. In terms of gender based reading, this book can be enjoyed by all teens but I found it is specifically targeted to the male audience as the majority of main characters except for Skye who comes later on in the novel are males. Another thing that I loved about Misplaced is the fact that the author writes about what she knows in terms of the places and landmarks in the novel - this was awesome as I was throughout the book imagining them at the Domain , by the Brookfield shops as I had been there. 
Misplaced by Lee Murray is a heartfelt book and at times will have you tear up and leave you hoping that maybe Adam can get some closure but also reminds us on the other hand of all those unsolved disappearances out there e.g Madeline McCann who went missing when she was three years old when her parents were on holiday and she has never been found still to this day.

Forever Sheltered by Deanna Roy Book Blitz


Synopsis: Forever Sheltered - Book #3 The Forever Series - Deanna Roy - July 2014

Tina would rather sew up her girl parts with dental floss than go on a second date with a man. She's been dumped enough to know not to get attached.

But when Dr. Darion Marks comes into her art therapy room to ask a favor for a special patient, Tina recognizes the haunted look he buries beneath his stoic professionalism. So rather than be forced to ditch the handsome doctor after a single night, she decides not to date him at all.

So how exactly DO they end up half-naked in Surgical Suite B?

Dr. Darion has a lot to hide. His baby sister is the only family he has left, and he’s not leaving her treatment to some incompetent hack.

But now he’s breaking every hospital rule imaginable. He lied about his sister so he can manage her care, and now he’s banging the art therapy teacher between patient rounds like a fraternity boy at a keg party.

Nobody believes this can end well, not Tina’s friend Corabelle, who is overcoming a tragic history much like Tina’s, or even pink-haired Jenny, who thinks sex with strangers is good for your metabolism.

But Dr. Darion and Tina have one thing going for them – a fierce passion for each other that just might obliterate all their doubts, and solve all their problems.

Forever Sheltered includes many favorite characters from Forever Innocent and Forever Loved, as well as the much-anticipated wedding of Gavin and Corabelle.

It is a standalone HEA that does not require reading any other parts of the Forever series.

Found in Us by Layla Hagen Book Blitz 

Synopsis: Found in Us - Book #2 Lost Series - Layla Hagen - July 2014

**This can be read as a STANDALONE. The second book in the Lost series tells Jessica and Parker's story.**

All Jessica wants -as a college graduate — is to be a good girl. She landed the job of her dreams at a museum and is trying to eliminate temptations. No more short skirts (when she can help it). No wild parties. And no men.

She particularly excels at that last thing. . .

Until her path crosses Parker’s. Again. Jessica remembers the last time their paths crossed very well. She was left with a seriously bruised ego. She knows it would be best to avoid him altogether. But the charming Brit makes it hard for her to elude his electrifying pull. He is as irresistible as he is captivating.

And enigmatic.

Because underneath the sleek Armani suit and the sweet British accent that makes her crave his touch, Parker isn’t the perfect gentleman everyone thinks he is.

He’s exactly what Jessica doesn’t want, but desperately needs.
A bad, bad boy.

The course of true love doesn’t always run smooth…

Everyone thought Beth Ann Bennet and Dr. Will Darcy had an unexpected romance in Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (Perfect #1).
