Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy











I am a hoarder of sorts.  A collector, if you will…  of signed books and swag.  I love them, and I love to share them with my beloved readers… so over the past few months, I’ve been collecting (or hoarding) books and swag that I’ve picked up at various conferences… most of which is from UtopYA 2014 (because, let’s face it, that was the most epic conference ever and I can’t wait for UtopYA 2015)!

The MechanicFrom Goodreads: The Mechanics were built to help people. They looked and behaved just like humans. But when the Mechanics malfunctioned and started to kill those who had given them life, they were hunted down and destroyed, until only one remained.

When twenty-two-year-old, Hope Last, has a chance encounter with a mysterious man named Aidan Croix, an immediate and intense attraction forms between them.


Hope soon fears that Aidan is keeping a terrible secret and begins to suspect that he might not be human after all but the last of the Mechanic’s the world has been hunting for. But Hope knows that it isn’t just her heart but her very life, Aidan holds in his hands.

______________________________________________________________

Tim O’Rourke’s latest release, The Mechanic, whisks readers away to a future where the world’s technology has advanced so far that the creation of seamless robots, those that look and feel like humans, is in the past. Welcome to a world where robots walk among us, but beware your neighbor; it’s impossible to tell who’s human and who’s not, a feat that now has society in an uproar because something’s gone wrong… the “mechanics” are turning on those they love, on those they’ve sworn to protect, and, in fits of stress and emotional overrides, they kill. Perhaps it’s unintentional, but murder is murder just the same, and as society works to rid itself of the mechanics once and for all, only one threat remains, hidden.

But who is the mechanic? O’Rourke sends readers on a rollercoaster ride as this novel unfolds. While I am quite proud of myself for actually having figured out the truth of this novel before the fact, O’Rourke does a wonderful job keeping readers on their toes concerning the identity of The Mechanic and all s/he holds in the balance as the world desperately attempts to find him/her.

Meet Hope. She’s lonely, fragile, and on the hunt for love. As the novel unfolds, we learn of her past abuse and her trepidation when it comes to relationships, and we feel her angst as she meets Aiden, only to become smitten with him almost immediately. And oh how lovely he is! O’Rourke has created some awesome characters in this story, and knowing his penchant for the strange and darkness of his novels, I knew that whatever happened, it wouldn’t end well for some of the characters I’d come to love, and I was right. But it’s such a perfect ending that I’m not even upset by the twisted inner workings of it all. In fact, I love them. Another perfect revelation.

O’Rourke has once again written a most enticing piece that you just must read. Five stars.

5 stars

I received an ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Tim O’Rourke has just recently updated his covers for the fabulous Sydney Hart Series–they’re beautiful!!  And in celebration, Tim if giving away a signed set to one lucky winner!!

Witch and YellowWitch:

Twenty-year-old Sydney Hart has always made mistakes and when she meets Michael Grayson, she soon comes to wonder if she hasn’t made the biggest mistake of her life. That one moment of passion between them causes Sydney’s world to spiral rapidly out of control.

Suffering from nightmares, Sydney soon realises her life and the people closest to her aren’t who or what she believed them to be. Fearing she has been cursed, Sydney attempts to unravel the dark secrets that surround her, and is desperate to discover why a dying man called her ‘Witch’.

A racy, paranormal romance with a chilling twist.

 

Yellow:

In love with Vincent and trying to move on with her life, Sydney Hart is visited by an old friend. When this friend suddenly goes missing, Sydney finds herself in a desperate race against time, not only to save her friend’s life, but also her relationship with Vincent.

With Michael wanting to spend more time with her in order to rekindle their relationship, Sydney’s life and emotions become ever more complex.

Trying to stay focused on the hunt for her missing friend, Sydney has to figure out who is telling her the truth; but most importantly, who is Mr. Yellow?

A little while back, I had the pleasure of meeting Wendy Higgins at a book convention, and I picked up an extra signed copy of Sweet Peril for a giveaway.  As I really love this series, and this second novel in the series is absolutely phenomenal, I thought a December giveaway was the perfect time for this one, as it’s the holiday and all.  Good luck!

15768191_________________________________________________________________________

Synopsis:

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?
