This week’s theme is My Sexy Wild. This is about that guy who makes your heart flutter when he walks into the room.

ClaimedHere’s my excerpt from Claimed – Book 1 a paranormal romance

Inviting waves lapped at the pebbled shore. Farther out,
rapids crested, and the darkened deep waters gave her shivers. She couldn’t swim. Not since she was three had she waded out in water deeper than her thighs and not until after years of therapy. So wading along the edge would have to do.

After removing her shirt and pants, Renee laid them over her canteen, but kept her underwear and bra on. She waded in until the cool water covered her shins, then she brought handfuls of water up to splash her arms and her neck.
A man called out, “You’re up early.”
She spun around with a gasp and clasped her arms to shield
her body. “Damon?”
His chuckle made her stomach flip. He was dressed in pale
blue swim trunks. Not even a towel hung around his neck. Golden
hair trailed down his lower abdomen and disappeared below the band
on his swimsuit as if pointing the way.
“I came here to get cleaned up.” Stop staring at his— “But I’m
done so it’s all yours.”
“You’ve barely washed.” His stare heated her. “How about a
swim? With me.” He held out his hand, and she blinked not realizing
he stood so close to her.

Movie Review – The Huntsman: Winter’s War

Movie Review – The Huntsman: Winter’s War

the_huntsman_-_winters_war_poster

The evil Queen Ravenna discovers that Freya, her younger sister who has no powers of her own,  is having an affair with nobleman and is pregnant with his child. After Frey gives birth to a daughter, who is murdered in her crib. Freya stricken with grief and rage, kills who she thinks is responsible and her powers of ice queen erupt.

Freya leaves her sister and builds a new kingdom as the Snow Queen. She kidnaps children to train in her arm and become her huntsmen.

Even though Eric, played by Chris Hemsworth, destroyed Ravenna–she manages a unique escape and returns for a bit in this movie.

I can’t say more without giving away the movie. The biggest thing for me was the movie not being clear if Snow White was the Snow Queen’s baby or not. And if yes, not giving that resolution to the Snow Queen. Also, I thought Raveena was a bit too easy to kill this time around. I’d have liked a bit more battle and struggle.

Overall though, a good movie and loved the tongue-n-cheek dialogue of Eric and his devil-may-care attitude through the movie. Really liked the powerful female characters like the Snow Queen and Sara.

My rating 4.0 out of 5

Movie Review – Ghostbusters 2016

Ghostbusters_2016_film_poster.pngMovie Review – Ghostbusters 2016

This movie stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. Four women startup a ghost catching service in New York City.

This movie has a lot of special effects and gives ample nods to the original Ghostbusters.

The bad guy was silly and too easily beaten. But I enjoyed Kate McKinnon and she should’ve gotten a lot more air time.

Overall, a good movie if you liked the original, give this one a chance. Especially if you like movies with women-centered roles.

My rating 4.2 out of 5
