BOOK REVIEW: Relentless Pursuit

Relentless Pursuit (Harlequin Desire)
Relentless Pursuit ~ 4/5

Here's what www.amazon.com says:
Book Description

Publication Date: May 1, 2012
Series: Harlequin Desire (Book 2159)

A cool million to help a withdrawn child in time for kindergarten? Widowed teacher Ava Barton is touched that the girl's guardian, Texas billionaire Will Delaney, cares so deeply. But the job includes moving into Will's mansion for the summer. And suddenly, Ava is working nights and weekends trying—unsuccessfully—to resist the gorgeous tycoon down the hall. Will wants her in his bed for June, July and August. But come fall, he'll move on. Unless she can teach him a thing or two about opening his guarded heart to love.  
My thoughts:
Good book, it only took me a few days to read. It was very sweet & showed how the love of a child changes peoples lives. This five year old little girl helps a widow heal & helps her uncle to learn that love isn't something based on what happens to others, but what is in your own heart. Great story, although a key plot point was focused on & led up to then the results left you hanging with no hope of more.
Thanks to www.eharliquin.com for allowing me to review this book. 


Hunger 4/5
Here's what www.netflix.com says:
2009 R 102 minutes

Five strangers awake in an underground dungeon and discover that they've been kidnapped as part of a terrible experiment. A sadistic scientist wants to answer a simple question: What are they willing to do to survive after weeks without food? As the days go by and their hunger becomes unbearable, the captives struggle to retain their humanity. Lori Heuring, Joe Egender and Lea Kohl star in this dark examination of mankind's lowest instincts.

My thoughts:
Good movie, not a storyline you see everyday either. It was sort like Saw, only no escape, only continuing to live on. It was however pretty creepy to see what some of them did.

MOVIE REVIEW: Tucker & Dale vs Evil

Tucker & Dale vs Evil ~ 4/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

2010 R 86 minutes

Expecting to enjoy a relaxing vacation at their rundown mountain cabin, backwoods boys Tucker and Dale see their peaceful trip turn into a nightmare when college kids camping nearby accuse the duo of being psychotic killers.

Here are my thoughts:

Not a bad movie, although some points were pretty dumb. It was more comedy/horror than just horror. Although, people die & you see alot of blood too. Worth it for horror & comedy fans!

MOVIE REVIEW: Ping Pong Playa

Ping Pong Playa ~ 1/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

Ping Pong Playa 2007 PG-13 96 minutes

When a car accident sidelines his mother and brother, tough-talking slacker C-Dub (Jimmy Tsai) shelves his pipe dream of becoming an NBA star to run the family's ping-pong supply and coaching business.

Here are my thoughts:

My husband & I took this movie with us on a camping trip to watch before we went to bed. This movie seemed to put us to bed! The storyline was boring, no real plot points & it didn't have anywhere it was going with the story. 

BOOK REVIEW: A Tangled Affair

A Tangled Affair (Harlequin Desire)
A Tangled Affair ~ 4/5

Here's what www.goodreads.com says:

They'd been embroiled in a hot, secret affair. Until Lucas Atraeus's and Carla Ambrosi's feuding families were merged by marriage and business. Suddenly the situation was complicated. Burned by the past, Lucas has never let his heart rule his head. Now, with Carla closer than he had ever imagined she would be, their affair must end.

Saying goodbye to such intense passion is not easy, as he's now Carla's boss.

But even as he sets out to choose an appropriate bride—one who won't break down his guard—Lucas fears he's fighting a losing battle. Sometimes temptation is meant to be seized.  
My thoughts:
Good book, quick & easy read. I read it within 2 days. Good storyline, although I don't understand why the storyline was explained at the end rather than through the book. Worth the time it takes to read.

Here's what www.amazon.com says:

Celia Rivenbark's essays about life in today's South are like caramel popcorn---sweet, salty, and utterly irresistible

Celia Rivenbark is a master at summing up the South in all its glorious excesses and contradictions. In this collection of screamingly funny essays, you'll discover:

* Secrets of Celebrity Moms (don't hate them because they're beautiful when there are so many other reasons to hate them)

* EBay addiction and why "It ain't worth having if it ain't on eBay" (Whoa! Is that Willie Nelson's face in your grits?)

* Why today's children's clothes make six-year-olds look like Vegas showgirls with an abundance of anger issues

* And so much more!

Rivenbark is an intrepid explorer and acid commentator on the land south of the Mason-Dixon line.    
My thoughts:
Great book!! I didn't want to put it down! Her humor & grace in all situations are hilarious!! Can't wait to read other books she's written!! 

MOVIE REVIEW: The New Daughter

The New Daughter ~ 3/5

2009 PG-13 107 minutes

Luis Berdejo directs this supernatural thriller centered on John James (Kevin Costner), who moves to the country to get a new start -- only to be confronted by a new nightmare when his daughter, Louisa (Ivana Baquero), begins acting stranger by the minute. With unsettling events besetting the South Carolina home, John begins to believe that something on the edge of the forest nearby might have the answers he needs.

My thoughts:

I personally thought it wasn't a bad movie. The daughter was very believable and did the part justice. Very good, worth a shot!

Mask Maker ~ 3/5
2010R1hr 29m
There's a reason the 19th-century plantation house Evan Reynolds (Stephen Colletti) bought for his fiancée came cheap. Too bad neither he nor his bride-to-be discover it until their friends -- whom they've invited to the manse to celebrate -- begin to drop dead. Too late for their pals, but perhaps in time to save themselves, the couple learns that past residents are still hanging around in this horror fest co-starring Treat Williams.

My thoughts:

Not a bad thrasher, horror movie. It was actually pretty good, people died, lots of blood. I just felt like it was the same type of storyline as every other thrasher movie ever!
