Apartment Life #315

 
This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 24 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 24 years here in a weekly blog post.

Last week this camper/RV pulled up across the street and the guy living in it has just been staying there. I saw the police pull up behind him and he came outside and was talking to them. Boy, he was not happy about it though. He was waving his arms around, yelling at the police and showing some papers to them. 

A few minutes later a second police car pulled up along side the first one and they stayed out there talking for a while The police did leave and it's been a few days and the guy with his camper/RV is still parked there. 

----

Drug dealer is still in jail, his wife is still in the hospital and will be going to rehab to help her walk on her leg again. The drug addicts have taken over the apartment again and us residents have given up trying to do anything about it. 
----

The high this week was 102F/38C
The low this week was 88F/31C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.

Freebie Friday!



Welcome to another weekly Freebie Friday post, where I tell you what free samples and full sized products I received in the mail and how you can get them too. Someone asked me why I do a "Freebie Friday" each week, so I'll tell you.

A while back I listed all the free samples and wins that I had received that previous year and so many people didn't believe that I could have gotten so many free things. So I decided to prove it by taking a picture every week and sharing the sites that I found the links to the freebies at. So now you too can get great free samples coming to your mailbox each week.

  You can find links to great samples at Hey It's Free and Freebie Shark.

This week I received: 

A new dog bed for Falcor. 
A pair of ankle boots. 
Both items were from Walmart Spark Reviewer. This site is by invitation only so I don't have a link where you can sign up. 

Falcor loves his bed. It's bigger than he is but he likes to stretch his legs out behind him when he sleeps so this gives him more than enough room to really stretch out. 

He's definitely living the dogs life right now. That stick in his mouth is a non-rawhide treat kebob stick or what is left of one. 

Those ankle boots were a complete disappointment though. They were so small. I wear a size 10, yes I have a big foot. lol I couldn't even get my toes all the way inside them, that's how small they were. My daughter wears a size 8 and I had her try them on and they fit her perfectly. So there's no way these were a size 10. But it worked out well for her, she got a new pair or boots out of it. 

Did you receive any freebies this week?

Book Review: The Dragon's Compliant Sacrifice by Ines Johnson

 

Book Description

Prized for her willowy-thin form, she'd never hungered for life. But when she is sacrificed to a dragon, she becomes a glutton for his touch...

After surviving years of catcalls and casting couches, model Lily Bishop suffers nightly from sleep paralysis. It takes the touch of the gentle dragon shifter Elek to free her from her night terrors. Though Elek does not want a mate, he agrees to place his mark on Lily which will keep her safe from other shifters in the Veil. Mated in name only, Lily is safe from being sought after by the other shifters looking for a mate and can now have the quiet life she always dreamed of. That is until she begins to yearn for more from her fake dragon mate than their easy friendship.

An accident that sent his mother into a catatonic state has kept Elek's dragon on lock down. That tight leash the man has on the dragon loosens when he reluctantly agrees to mate quiet, withdrawn Lily. At first Elek believes the two of them can have a quiet life together watching old sitcoms and 80s movies. But one whiff of Lily and Elek's dragon wants to claim the comely model in the flesh.

As man and beast struggle for control, other shifters learn that Elek's claim on Lily is not complete which leaves Lily open to mating games. Now Lily is in danger of losing the safety she craves. But she'd throw caution to the wind with just one sign that the dragon she's falling for wants to stake his claim for real. Elek has already lost his heart to Lily, but if he loses control of his dragon the man he is will succumb to the wiles of the beast and the past could repeat itself, causing him to lose the woman that he craves with his whole self.


My Review

Elek is a dragon shifter stuck in the veil with other shifters. He has his dragon locked down tight though because of an accident that happened to his mother and he's never forgiven himself. So when Lily needs to protection of a dragon shifter so she's safe from other shifters in the veil, Elek agrees to give her his mark but that is all. He does not want to be her mate and all she wants is to have a peaceful existence until she wants more from Elek. When he refuses to give that to her she refuses his mark which leaves her open to other shifters to pursue her but that doesn't sit well with Elek. 

Now Elek will have to come to terms with what he is as well as let his dragon out in order to get the woman he wants before some other shifter makes a claim on her. 

Elek and Lily were made for each other but one stubborn dragon shifter won't let them be together for real until it's almost too late. Watching them fight the pull they feel was fun but watching them finally give in was even better. This series has been fun because the dragon shifters all have very different personalities and the women that come into their lives are all very different and fun. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Book Review: Beautiful Lies: Specimen-One book #2 by Ever Nightly

 

Book Description

I’ve been kidnapped, and I’m completely alone. Area 51 has been destroyed, and S1 is gone. I’m left to sift through the pieces of what happened, and figure out how I’m going to survive. But as I dig deeper into the government’s secrets, one thing becomes abundantly clear...

Nothing is what it seems.


My Review

This book picks up where Beautiful Thing left off. If you want to read my review for that one just click on that title. That one ended on a cliffhanger and even though I liked the premise of the book and the writing, I hate cliffhangers. But then I saw that book 2 was free on Amazon and decided to go ahead and get it. I mean, it surely won't end on another cliffhanger, will it? Yes, it does. This book is only 136 pages, the first one was 236 pages and the third book is 156 pages. Why not just consolidate this trilogy into two books that have real endings? Either way I read this one and again, I liked the story, the writing and the characters. It kills me that it ends on another cliffhanger. 

Ava is locked in the lab and she's pregnant. The head scientist wants to keep her and then use her child who is half alien to run experiments on. But not everyone there at this facility thinks what the doctor is doing is right and he tries to help Ava as much as he can. She thinks that S1, the baby's father is dead, and there's another group of people who work there that want her to just abort the baby because it's half alien and they see it as an abomination. 

When she's kidnapped from the facility by the other group, she knows that she and her unborn child are in even more danger. But like I said, this one ends in a cliffhanger as well. I wouldn't have even bothered with this one if it hadn't been free. I thought maybe it would be a full book with a real ending and if that had happened I might of bought the 3rd and last book. But I'm done. 

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.

Book Review: Wolf in the Shadows by Maria Vale

 

Book Description

Shifter Julia Martel has been spoiled and pampered by all the alpha males around her whose urge to protect her have left her uninformed and vulnerable. Now the Great North Pack has relegated Julia to the care of the wolf at the very bottom of the Pack hierarchy, Arthur Graysson. Julia wants nothing to do with the Pack, except to escape back to her life of luxury and idleness, but the more time she spends with Arthur, the more she learns about the Pack, the dark secrets Arthur carries with him, and the fierceness within herself that could save them all...


My Review

Julia lived as a human as her powerful shifter family instructed her to reject her animal half, she was pampered and looked after and brought up to accommodate the powerful men in her family. She wanted nothing to do with the pack so when she and her fianc√© are kidnapped and she is relegated to care for Arthur, she wants nothing to do with him. She just wants to go back home to the way things were before. 

I've read this series from the beginning and really liked the previous books but I found myself bored with the first half of this book. The romance between Julie and Arthur didn't feel genuine to me and I didn't like how Julia was treated. 

The second half of the book was a little better but because this is the last book of the series I expected more and I didn't get it which I was disappointed about. I didn't think the writing or the storyline was as good as the previous books. But I read it and was glad that it did have a good ending. That's the best thing I can say about this book. I will say that you should read this series in order for it to make more sense though. 

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.

Apartment Life #314

 
This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 24 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 24 years here in a weekly blog post.


So last week I told you that drug dealer is still in jail and his wife is in the hospital with an infected leg and she's septic. That is all still the same. Except she is getting better and she isn't going to lose her leg. The antibiotics are working.

Last Sunday evening my neighbor called the police because the one guy who's supposed to be in drug dealer's apartment was letting in a bunch of the drug addicts when he said he wouldn't. Drug dealer actually called my neighbor and asked what was going on, when she told him, he asked her to look after his apartment and make sure the drug addicts didn't steal anything. So my neighbor called the police and told them that the two people who live there are in jail and in the hospital and druggie squatters have taken over the apartment. 

Oh and drug dealer asked about his dog so my neighbor had to tell him the drug addicts took the 3 dogs (his plus the two that they took in because the owners were homeless) to someone else's house but they wouldn't tell her who or where so she has no idea where his dog is. He's not happy and is trying to get out of jail early but he has about a month to go before he can get out. His dog is a Bichon Fris√© and they can be a little on the expensive side. So if the druggies try to sell the dog they might be able to get quite a lot to use for drugs. That's what my neighbor is afraid of. 

It took more than 2 hours for the police to finally show up but when they did, they did nothing. I went outside and the police told my neighbor that they didn't have probable cause to knock on the door and ask people for ID. There was nothing they could do unless the people in there did something to give them probable cause to question them and ask for ID. So if they start fighting, causing a lot of noise, causing destruction to the apartment that we can hear or see and we call the police...then they can do something. But even then I wonder if they will make them leave? 

And before someone says call the manager. They don't care. They tell us if we have a problem to call the police because that's not their job. They won't do anything about it. 

My neighbor called the police two more times after that this week because of all the drug addicts going in and out. One police officer told her if she see's them all leave during the day, that she could open the door, lock it and shut the door. So she did that while the cop was standing there. She doesn't think they have a key to the door since they keep leaving the door unlocked when they leave, she knows because she's opened the door when they have left. But later that night they were back in the apartment, so they must have left a window unlocked or they broke in the door. 

----

On Friday a friend of drug dealer's wife came with the apartment keys from drug dealer's wife. She asked this woman to make the druggies leave and secure her apartment. Me and my neighbor heard her banging on the door yelling at the druggies inside to open the door. She couldn't get in with the keys because the druggies changed one of the locks on the door and she didn't have a key. They finally opened the door and she made them leave. She went inside and it was a mess. There were crack pipes all over the place and the bedroom was all torn apart, everything had been gone through. She didn't know what to do so I told her to call the police and have them come take pictures and write a report. So the friend called the police, told them she was an agent of the apartment owner, had the apartment keys, kicked the squatters out and found drug paraphernalia and wanted the police to come take pictures and write a report. They said they would. 

The druggies kept coming back trying to get in the apartment while she was standing there so she asked me and my neighbor if we would stay there with her and keep the druggies out until the police got there so we did. I told the friend, "We're both big girls, (5'6" and over 300lbs each) these, malnourished squatters aren't getting past us." She laughed and said they doubted they would try as long as we were standing there. 

The funny thing is one of the drug addicts came and stood out in the middle of the courtyard about 5 feet from us and just stared at us. So I told her to lock the lock she did have a key for so the meth-heads couldn't get in until the police came. I said it loud enough for him to hear and he left after she locked the door. More druggies kept walking over to us asking what we were doing and she told them that we were waiting for the police. Boy, they were not happy but I had my tazer on me just in case. 

The police came, were able to go inside the apartment finally because it was open and she had the keys from the person that rented it. They were there for hours documenting everything. Taking pictures and writing a report that they said the apartment manager and/or the people on the lease could come get if they wanted to file theft charges if anything is missing when they come home. So there's that at least. 

It's not a great picture but there are two police cars there parked on the street that showed up. There were 4 police officers that were going through everything in the apartment and they found a bunch of drug paraphernalia. 

The police locked up the apartment but the back bedroom window was broken and they left it open. 

There's a crack in the left side of the window too where the druggies broke it. The police said that the neighbors have done all they could and that we shouldn't try to stop the druggies from going in or confront them because they can be dangerous, which is true. They said to try and contact the manager so we are all going to do that and see if anything happens. I doubt it will though.

The high this week was 114F/45C
The low this week was 86F/30C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.

Favorite Song of the Week

 

From Ashes To New is a new band for me but when I heard heartache, I added this song to my playlist. I like the rock sound with a little bit of rap added to the song. I remember the first time I heard a song that had this combination of rap and rock to it was a Linkin Park song and I loved them. I hope you like this song as much as I do.

Book Review: Alpha's War by Renee Rose and Lee Savino

 

Book Description

I MARKED YOU. YOU BELONG TO ME.
Nash
I've survived suicide missions in war zones. Shifter prison labs. The worst torture imaginable. Nothing knocked me off my feet... until the beautiful lioness they threw in my cage. We shared one night before our captors ripped us apart.

Now I'm free, and my lion is going insane. He'll destroy me from the inside out if I don't find my mate.
I don't know who she is. I don't know where she lives. All I have is a video of her. But I'll die if I don't find her, and make her mine. I'm coming for you, Denali.

Denali
They took me from my home, they killed my pride, they locked me up and forced me to breed. They took everything from me and still I survived. But one night with a lion shifter destroyed me. Nash took the one thing my captors couldn't touch--my heart.

Somehow I escaped, and live in fear that they will come for me. It's killing my lioness, but I've got to hide--even from Nash. I've got to protect the one thing I have left to lose.
Our cub.


My Review

While Nash was locked up in the labs and being experimented on, the scientists would bring in shifter females for him to breed with so they could have more shifters once the babies were born. If he didn't comply the consequences were really bad so all parties did what they had to in order to survive. Nash was messed up before he was locked in a cage but being experimented on just made him even more messed up and dangerous. He didn't even remember that he had marked Denali as his mate when they had been together in the lab. It isn't until someone shows him the video of them together in the cage that he realizes what he did. But when they tell him that she also has a child, his child...he knows he has to find her. 

Denali escaped the labs, cage and breeding program. But by then she was pregnant with Nash's cub and she's been hiding both of them ever since. She knows the labs are being dismantled but fears that someone who might have escaped will come for her and her son and she just can't take the chance that they will get captured. So when she spots Nash, her first instinct is to run. She's scared and isn't sure she can trust him at first. 

After she calms down and they talk she allows him to meet their son but is still very wary. When his friends come for a visit, she realizes that he has people around him that not only rely on him but care about him. But Nash is very messed up inside and afraid what his animal will do at any given moment. When they have a chance to do some damage to the people who kept them caged, it was an all out action packed time that had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen. I really have been enjoying this series and this book was another good addition to the series. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Book Review: Alpha's Obsession by Renee Rose and Lee Savino

 

Book Description

A werewolf, an owl shifter, and a scientist walk into a bar…

Sam

I was born in a lab, fostered out to humans, then tortured in a cage. Fate allowed me to escape, and I know why.

To balance the scales of justice. Right the misdeeds of the harvesters.

Nothing matters but taking down the man who made me what I am: A monster driven by revenge, whatever the cost.

Then I meet Layne. She thinks I’m a hero.

But she doesn’t understand—If I don’t follow this darkness to its end, it will consume me.

Layne

I’ve spent my life in the lab, researching the cure for the disease that killed my mom. No late nights out, no dates, definitely no boyfriend.

Then Sam breaks into my lab, steals my research, and kidnaps me. He’s damaged. Crazy. And definitely not human.

He and his friends are on a mission to stop the company that’s been torturing shifters, and now I’m a part of it.

Sam promises to protect me. And when he touches me, I feel reborn. But he’s hellbent on revenge. He won’t give it up.



My Review

Layne is just in her lab trying to get the break through she needs when Sam breaks in and steals her research and kidnaps her. She knows she needs to get away but Sam isn't human so she isn't sure she can get away anyway. She doesn't want to leave without her research either because it could help so many people but she doesn't know where the cells that she's been working with have come from until Sam tells her about the labs holding other paranormals that are being experimented on. But he's not mad at her because she didn't know or have anything to do with any of that, she just works in the lab. 

Sam is broken ever since his time being experimented on in the labs. All he knows is that he needs to get revenge on those that had anything to do with his torture. He knows that Layne isn't involved but he takes her anyway because he feels something for her but that puts her in danger because now the people she works for thinks she's in cahoots with him and the stealing of her research. Her life is also in danger now. 

Watching these two get to know each other better and see that the preconceived ideas they had about each other were wrong was fun. Watching Sam and his friends find the person responsible and try to take him down was an action filled fun time. I really liked the secondary characters and that's one of the reasons I keep reading this series. The world building is great and each book can be read as a standalone but if you read the series from the beginning you really get to know each of these characters better and the overarching storyline will make more sense. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Book Review: Ancient Retribution by Katie Reus

 

Book Description

A dragon princess once lost…

Juniper hunts down the most dangerous criminals on her black ops missions—and she’s good at it. A dragon shifter who was raised by wolves, she doesn’t know her birth clan and gave up trying to find them a hundred years ago. Since The Fall, when rogue dragons razed half the planet, she’s spent her days hunting down supernaturals who think they can escape justice, delivering her own. During a dangerous mission, she falls into the claws of a sexy warrior dragon adjusting to the modern world—and from the start she knows she’s in trouble.

Is now found…

Dragon shifter warrior Zephyr doesn’t fit into this new world. He doesn’t feel like he fits in anywhere—until he meets Juniper and her crew. He knows from the moment he sees the sexy and brave female dragon that they’re destined to be together. Unfortunately, life just got a whole lot more complicated. Not only are they in the fight of their lives against an overwhelming enemy force, but she’s royalty and her long-lost clan has come to bring her home. Even as they fight side by side to save hundreds of humans, he knows that winning her heart will be the hardest and most pivotal battle he’s ever waged. Juniper doesn’t want to get mated, doesn’t trust anyone with her heart—but this is one battle Zephyr will never stop fighting.

Author note: Though part of a series, this book may be read as a stand-alone, complete with HEA.



My Review

Juniper and her friends are out making sure that the most dangerous of supernaturals are brought to justice. While out of one of their missions they come across another dragon shifter and help him close a door that should not be open. Juniper is also a dragon shifter who was given up when she was younger and she has no idea which clan she belongs to. She's never felt a pull to a male dragon like she does to this new guy. 

Zephyr was away for a long time and is just getting used to being around his brothers again. So when he comes across Juniper and her friends while he's trying to help keep everyone safe, he's feeling a pull to her like he's never felt before. But Juniper and her friends don't trust him right away. 

Zephyr goes back to where Juniper and her friends live and asks if he can join them in fighting the dangerous criminals. He wants to join the group so he can be closer to her while they get to know one another better. 

When new people show up to speak to Juniper, she gets the surprise of her life. That storyline was incredible. I won't say to much because I don't want to spoil anything for anyone but it brought a tear to my eyes more than once. 

I really liked watching Zephyr and Juniper get to know each other better and fall hard for each other. They really needed one another so it was great to see their relationship come together. I've really been enjoying this series and am excited to see who will get their story next. There are so many characters to choose from so it will be a surprise.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Apartment Life #313

 
This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 24 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 24 years here in a weekly blog post.

This palm tree is always in the way when I'm trying to take pictures on this side of the street. But hopefully you can make out the red fire truck and lights. On Monday the fire truck and ambulance showed up for drug dealer's wife. I found out from my neighbor that drug dealer's wife called my neighbor and asked for help because one of the meth heads tried to shoot her up with heroin (with her permission) in the leg but missed the vein and shot it in her leg which lead to an infection. But drug dealer's wife waited over a week to get help and by that time she couldn't walk. The meth and crack heads in her apartment wouldn't get her help because they didn't want to be kicked out of the apartment so they left her in her bed to suffer. She finally called my neighbor for help because she knew she would help her.

So my neighbor called an ambulance and told all the methheads to get out of the apartment when she was taken to the ER. But drug dealer's wife left one of the crackheads that she trusted to watch the two dogs in her apartment and to make sure that none of the other drug addicts broke into her apartment and stole anything but he's not supposed to let anyone else in the apartment. 

On Tuesday I heard a bunch of yelling coming from drug dealer's apartment and when I saw my neighbor down there banging on the door, I went down there to see what was going on. She told me that there was a bunch of druggies in the apartment and they wouldn't open the door and leave. She was yelling for the one guy who is supposed to be there to open the door or she was going to call the police. I told her I would go call the police, so when they heard me I guess they opened the door and all but the one guy who is supposed to be there left. So I didn't have to call the police. The police would have made the one guy leave because he isn't on the lease and they would have taken the dogs to the pound and my neighbor didn't want to see that happen. 

But drug dealer's wife is in the hospital. Her leg got infected, she's septic, in and out of consciousness and the infection has moved to the bone in her leg. She is really bad shape. Her husband (drug dealer) is still in jail until August. I've seen people knocking on drug dealer's door but the one guy hasn't been letting anyone else in there. So it's just wait and see what happens at this point.

The high this week was 112F/44C
The low this week was 86F/30C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.

Freebie Friday!

 

Welcome to another weekly Freebie Friday post, where I tell you what free samples and full sized products I received in the mail and how you can get them too. Someone asked me why I do a "Freebie Friday" each week, so I'll tell you.

A while back I listed all the free samples and wins that I had received that previous year and so many people didn't believe that I could have gotten so many free things. So I decided to prove it by taking a picture every week and sharing the sites that I found the links to the freebies at. So now you too can get great free samples coming to your mailbox each week.

  You can find links to great samples at Hey It's Free and Freebie Shark.

I received a Little Freebies Box from Bloomingdales. 

I also received samples of face cleanser, moisturizer and other face creams from Riversol. 

And samples of Purifico shampoo and body wash pods. I did pay a small shipping and handling fee for these. 

The little Freebies Box contained:
Valentino Donna Born in Roma Coral Fantasy perfume. 
Creed Wild Flowers perfume. 
Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in the color pillow talk. 
MCM perfume.

I really liked all the perfumes. The lipstick is alright but not really my color. 

The Purifico shampoo pods are nice. They come in little sealed pods that break open under water and it works good as well as smells good. They can be used as body wash as well. 

I've started using the Riversol samples I received and I will say the cleanser and moisturizer are really good. That's all I've used so far. 

Did you receive any freebies this week?

Book Review: Alpha's Danger by Renee Rose and Lee Savino

 

Book Description

“YOU BROKE THE RULES, LITTLE HUMAN. I OWN YOU NOW.”

I am an alpha wolf, one of the youngest in the States. I can pick any she-wolf in the pack for a mate. So why am I sniffing around the sexy human attorney next door? The minute I catch Amber’s sweet scent, my wolf wants to claim her.

Hanging around is a bad idea, but I don’t play by the rules. Amber acts all prim and proper, but she has a secret, too. She may not want her psychic abilities, but they’re a gift.

I should let her go, but the way she fights me only makes me want her more. When she learns what I am, there’s no escape for her. She’s in my world, whether she likes it or not. I need her to use her gifts to help recover my missing sister—and I won’t take no for an answer.

She’s mine now.

Publisher’s Note: Alpha’s Danger is a stand-alone book in the Bad Boy Alpha’s series. HEA guaranteed, no cheating. This book contains a hot, demanding alpha wolf with a penchant for protecting and dominating his female. If such material offends you, do not buy this book.


My Review

When Amber finds out that the three huge, scary looking dudes have moved in to the apartment next to her she's not happy and thinks she might be in danger. So she does the only thing she can, she complains to the person in charge who then tells the guy next door what she said about him. Talk about awkward. But Amber is also attracted to one of the guys and he's made it clear that he's attracted to her too. But she's not going to act on it, is she? Amber also has a secret, she has visions sometimes. She's tried to repress them so she doesn't see some of the awful things that her visions have shown her but that only gives her really bad headaches. 

After Garrett and his friends flirt with Amber in the elevator a little, he's not sure why he's so taken with the little human. He and his friends are werewolves and he's expected to mate with a she-wolf and be in charge of his own pack. He can't do that with a human but that doesn't stop him from being attracted to her. So when he sees her the next time and she's in the middle of an awful migraine, he helps her get back to her apartment and shows her that he's not the scary guy she thinks he is. 

Amber has a vision of him and finds out his secrets. But that puts her in danger and when she almost let's a secret slip to her friend, Garrett insists that she come with him to help find his missing sister, Sedona. Amber isn't happy about it but there's not much she can do to escape three werewolves. The longer Amber and Garrett spend together, the closer they get and the more they want each other. There are some BDSM scenes in this book but they weren't violent and for me just added to the spice of the scene. These two were really good for each other and I was glad to see an HEA at the end of this book. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Product Review: Daily Goodie Box- July

 
The Daily Goodie Box has been around since about July of 2016. I signed up for an account right after I heard about them. They are 100% free, you don't even have to pay for shipping. And for a free box it's a nice sampler box of products.

What was in the box?

Tranquini - Wellness Drink-  I had the hibiscus flavored drink and it was good. I would drink this again. 

RareEssence - Stress Relief Roll-on Oil- You're supposed to rub this on your pulse points and the scent is supposed to relax you. The scent was nice but when I want to relax I like an ocean scent. But this does have a nice scent.

Artisana Organics - Nut Butters Variety- I received 4 different flavors of these nut butters. I've had this before and really liked them. They taste really good. Chocolate and nuts are my favorite combination though. 

Buddah Brands - Keto Bars- These are actually not bad at all. I received two different flavors and both were good. 

Dr. Botanicals - Lemon Superfood Rescue Butter-  This is a good lotion for dry skin. I just wish it had a nice scent to it. There's not much of a scent at all to it and I really like a scented lotion. But that's just my preference. 

Beauty Without Cruelty - Leave-In Conditioner- This leave in conditioner smells slightly of lavender but it's not over powering and it's a nice conditioner. It left my hair soft and shiny. 

Daily Crunch Snacks - Sprouted Nut Snacks- These almonds are sprouted which means they are soaked in water, germinated and then left with a hollow core which makes them a little crunchier. They have a good taste to them though. 

2x4 Health - Heart Health- This is supposed to be good for your heart while giving you a boost of energy. I didn't feel more energetic but if it's good for my heart I'll keep taking it. The taste isn't great so hiding it in a smoothie or something is best. 

All they ask you to do is try the products and leave reviews for the products you got in order to be eligible for more Free Goodie Boxes. As you guys already know, I'm a fan of all these types of boxes. I love all the different subscription boxes and it's really nice to be able to try new to me products for free. This is a great box to try for.

Oh and one more thing, if you visit their FB Page, they give away Goodie Boxes to people who interact with their posts. So if you've tried before and weren't able to get a Goodie Box, there's even more ways to get one now.



Have you signed up? Have you received one of these boxes?

I'm a fan of subscription boxes and love trying new products for free so this was a huge hit with me. New products+free box = Fabulous!

Disclosure: I was given and free box in exchange for a review but all opinions are my own.
