Movie Review!! John Carter

John Carter
Rated: PG-13
Released: March 9, 2012
Civil War vet John Carter is transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, who is in desperate need of a savior.

My Review:
So I wanted to wait for Monday to post this since its all romance today! If you follow my on facebook you have already seen my review, so I will just add it here and add a little to it! This is my quickie movie review!

I give it a 4/5 stars. It is a Sci-fi action adventure with a love story.  There were some parts that were a little slow moving which caused the movie to feel longer. There is a twist that ties it all up in the end, but I feel it wasn't explained that well for audiences. Some of my friends kept asking me questions about it so I recommend the end monologue where he explains everything to his nephew is very important! The characters, (especially the side characters) were great. The special effects were well made and they made the aliens look  believably real. The alien creatures are a barbaric hoard but have the ability to have human emotions. The connection between John and Dejah is a love at first sight and fast moving. I liked the princess Dejah, she is a strong female who puts the wants and security of her people before hers. Lastly John Carter...is shirtless throughout 95% of the film...YUM!! I was expecting his eyes to turn yellow, grow fangs, reveal he had a prosthetic leg and say he has a brother named Zsadist..:D Very entertaining movie, Disney Studios is off to a great start!!

Have you seen it, will you see it??

**Book Spotlight & Giveaway** C791 by Eve Langlais

Today is The ParaNormal Romance Party Mondays!!! That means that any sub-genre in Romance can be showcased or discussed!So today I am happy to have a Book Spotlight/ Review/ AND GIVEAWAY tour for Eve Langlais's C791.


**Review** C791 By Eve Langlais

C791 (Cyborgs: More than Machines #1)
Eve Langlais
Released: Feb. 2012

Machines aren’t supposed to feel, but this cyborg can’t help falling in love. 

Assigned as a specimen collector for a captured cyborg, Chloe is intrigued by the machine disguised as a man. Kidnapped during his daring escape, he shows her that despite the chip in his brain, his humanity is not completely lost. 

Formerly known as unit X109GI, Joe is on a quest to discover his origin. While he doesn’t find the answers he’s looking for, he does discover that affection and lust aren’t just for humans. But when it comes to a battle between logic and love, which side will the cybernetic organism—once a man—choose? 

Evaluating his feelings will have to wait though because the military isn’t done with Joe. But their threats against him pale in comparison before the shocking discovery of project C791, the revelation of which stuns the rebel cyborgs—and ignites a fury for vengeance. 

Warning: This story contains violence towards the heroine that might offend some readers, but rest assured the hero kicks the offending butts. This is a spicy romance featuring an ultra hot, cyborg male. Reader titillation is advised.

This is an Erotic Sci-fi Romance! I say this because its not for the faint of heart! I have read some of Mrs. Langais's previous works and know what to expect. When I heard that she was writing a new series about Cyborgs I was immediately interested and excited!!

It was a great story, I liked it a lot. The characters are great, they are well written and defined but I wasn't blown away by they connection the characters had. I mean it was there but this story (to me) felt like there was more importance place on the love scenes than the actual relationship development. I mean I don't mind if there is one or 30 love scenes but I want the feel the connection of the characters whether they are going through good or bad circumstances.

If you have read Laurann Dohner Cyborg series, you will be pleased to find another fun series with the same theme. Eve does a great job of pulling the reader into her Sci-fi world. The loves scenes are HOT!! *fans self* I hope the next one we will get to see a little more romance. I love to read books that make me feel connected to the characters feelings to the point where I'm sucked into it and find myself crying, laughing or any other emotion the characters have. This series has great potential and will be waiting for the next one!

**Interview & Giveaway** Party Time with Author Nana Malone

    Hey Everyone!! I'm so happy to be having Nana Malone on the blog today! She was able to do an interview and I have a review also! Don't forget to enter the giveaway!! She Is giving away one copy of her book The Reluctant Protector!!   
    Welcome to PNRP!!! Tell us a little about yourself Nana!
I’ve lived all over the world but my family is originally from Ghana. Growing up, I was always itchy for new adventures and slamming my nose in a book was the easiest, safest way I could manage it. It was during one of my less successful adventures in New York that I decided to actually do something about my writing hobby and aim for publication. It took me eleven years 3 completed manuscripts and more rejections than I care to count but I’m finally here.

**Review** The Reluctant Protector By Nana Molone

The Reluctant Protector ( #1 in Protector Series)
Nana Malone
Released: Dec. 2011

For five years, Cassie Reeser has been her brother’s personal lab rat. Peter’s experiments have made her a stronger, faster, better human. And she’s not the only one – he’s been experimenting on others as well. For five years, escape has eluded her. Until now. When she finds out he plans to sell her as a human weapon she knows it’s now or never. To make her escape she’ll sacrifice family bonds and leave behind the one person who’s ever helped her. Cassie’s learned to shrink from kindness and to never trust anyone. She knows the day Peter finally captures her will be the day she dies. To elude her brother and save the others, she’ll have to risk her body and her heart. What she doesn't expect is a chance at a normal life. 

Seth Adams is used to sifting through lies to find the truth. As a former war correspondent he knows what evils lurk in the world. When he finds Cassie hiding out in his car trunk, her story sounds like a fantastical dream. But, before long, he witnesses firsthand what she’s talking about when they’re attacked by a group of Peter’s soldiers. As a result, he goes through his own transformation into a super human and realizes the extent of what Cassie is running from. Cassie might not think she needs his protection, buthe’ll die before he lets her brother have her back

1st line in the book---> Frigid cold settled into Cassie Reeser's bones.

The first thing that I have to say is that this book is Very HOT!!! I didn't have any expectations but I was very happy to have received this book to review! Its more Romantic Suspense with some PNR elements but I enjoyed it very much. I don't usually read Romantic Suspense because I can't really get into it but I was hooked on The Reluctant Protector!

Cassie has had a rough time. She has been experimented on by her brother and he has turned her into a modern day superhero. She discovers she isn't the only one and escapes with the intent to rescue those like her. Then comes Seth Adams, a very sexy reported who's been trying o write a story on Cassie's brother. When the two collide, sparks fly!! 

There was good chemistry between the characters. I really enjoyed how the author set up the start of this great series. I was surprised at how short it was though. Its a novella, so it ended too soon for me. Cassie is a very strong but damaged heroine its a good thing she finds Seth because he is able to give her that happiness and trust that was taken from her by her brother. 

Again I say this read is an Adult book!! I guess you are wondering how a human reporter can help a genetically enhanced superwoman fight the bad guys....well Seth gets some powers of his own in a very interesting way ;) Thats all I'm going to say!!! You need to read to find out!!!
