Grace and Dignity Review

Grace And Dignity 
By Laura Grody
Pages: 240
Published: August 6, 2013
Book Decription:
 According to Milo, rescuing Prince Dignity would be easy: 'On the count of three, we take a running Leap of Faith off Carpe' Diem Cliff, cross the River of Fear in the Raft of Courage, and boom, we're at the Castle of Doom.'

Princess Grace and Prince Dignity, a royal couple with mystical powers, are set to be crowned king and queen of the magnificent Kingdom of Love. But on the eve of their coronation, disaster strikes, and Grace is told her prince has been murdered. Grief-stricken, the princess reportedly dies of a broken heart, and the shocked kingdom falls into the eager hands of Dignity's unscrupulous cousin, Prince Denial. Months later, however, Grace is found alive with a gap in her memory, a loss of her powers, and a mysterious Pig Latin note suggesting Prince Dignity is very much alive. As she searches for her prince throughout the rundown kingdom, Grace stumbles upon an ancient secret known as 'The Cosmic Source' - a powerful force which promises to revive her mystical powers and lead to an exciting new way of living. But with the crown title 'throne' for a loop, the future of the Kingdom of Love hangs upon the prince's Dignity.

Find out if True Love conquers all in this mystical, linguistical tale of 'Grace and Dignity.'
My Review:
This book is  not only about how  love conquer all, but how the power of the "Golden Rule" and all that follows will over power all evil.
 That you got to trust in you and everyone, for the world and everything around it to fall into place. I loved the word play... the names of people and places and how it just fits that person. It would be great if I was introduced as not just by my name but my true personality.
 This is a love story, yes, but .... okay well we all know .. "if its ment to be it will be", but these characters in the story, not only learned and believed in True Love, "with a capital T and a capital L" they learned about one another, accepted their flaws, their insecurities, and got to know and love the person by their good qualities and not their bad.  And in doing so they conquered the people who wanted to destroy the one thing that can not be destroyed.

Caged In Darkness

By JD Stroube

 January 7, 2014
Pages: 294
Purchase: Amazon

Book Description

A witch raised in a cage of darkness... 

Savannah Cross was born into a life of isolation and abuse. As a child, she witnessed her parents perform acts of malevolent evil, and now feels permanently tainted by their dark deeds. 

When a coven discovers a tear stricken child, wounded on their elders lawn, they offer her a sanctuary she has never known. Savannah spends the next several years shattered, continuously looking over her shoulder, waiting for the darkness to claim her. 

On her 16th birthday, Savannah’s life takes a drastic turn.She is consumed by overwhelming power that forever alters her emotionally and physically. 

She must choose between two loves; the one who taught her to smile or the darkly seductive stranger who tempts her towards another path. Savannah must decide between the coven that was her haven and another one vying for her initiation. Just as Savannah begins to grasp what fate has in store for her, an evil looms over her loved ones; coming to claim an unbreakable debt. 

How will she choose and survive the greatest evil she has ever witnessed... long enough to have a choice to make?

I want to start off by saying "Wow", I was unable to put the book down until I found out what happened and how they were done! I mean it! I had to push back my shower (which I normally take while kids are napping)!!!! 

This is a story about a young girl who was born a witch. Her mother and her father, who once was good witches, had gotten addicted to the power and became dark witches. When this happened they caged Savannah in a caged, would only let her out to bath when they couldn't take the smell anymore, just neglect her all together. When Savannah was 9 she escaped and found her self where her parents where once in a coven at. Savannah is taken in and taken care of. Weeks before her 16th birthday, Savannah discovers things from her past that might change her future for the worst.

I was not sure I would like this book. I was kinda skeptic on the whole Wiccan idea, thought it would be like a Charmed or The Craft and didn't think someone could live up to them. Well... I loved this book! I have already added her next book to my list to purchase! There was some notion to sex.. but nothing a Mature teenager would be "harmed" by if they read. 
All authors have a style to them in their writing that you have to get used to before you get in the flow of the book. I did not have any problems here!

Coming Soon!!

Short Excerpt Love Me?

       My nerves start to get the better of me, I start to feel nauseous; those darn pesky butterflies attack again. I’m not sure why I’m nervous, whether it’s the shoes making me unstable or whether it’s the memory of our first date, our first touch, or our first kiss that’s making me bashful. 
       I turn the corner to see him standing there with a bunch of red roses, in the suit that he changed into earlier, this time with a baby pink tie on. Behind him is that gorgeous waterfall cascading down the cliff with the lush greenery surrounding us. As I take a step closer, I hear music playing. “Thank You for Loving Me” by Bon Jovi. It’s our song. I feel my eyes welling up as all the emotion and love I feel for this man is becoming too much to bear.
       His smile is beaming from ear to ear when I approach. Finally I reach him. He holds out his hand for me to take. I take it, and he pulls me into a tight embrace. 
       “This is perfect,” I whisper.
       “Perfection for perfection, my love.” He kisses my cheek, and places the bouquet of flowers on the railing.

Trust Me?

Book Description:

Jenifer Taylor is content with her life, dull and boring as it is. Being absent from the dating scene means she doesn’t have to deal with the major trust issues she has with men that stem from a controlling and aggressive ex-boyfriend and an absentee father.  She’s happy being alone, sharing her life with her friends and family.

When Jeni starts a typical day in the big city of Mornington Vale, California, it turns from bad to worse when she’s involved in a chain collision on her way to work.
Her world changes forever that day because she meets Aiden O’Connell, the billionaire son of Alistair O’Connell, who owns Mornington Vale’s largest financial corporation. Aiden is an up-and-coming young businessman who's ready to take on the vice presidency of his father’s company. He is the good son, and it’s imperative to Alistair that Aiden succeed and follow in his footsteps. Life for Aiden involves working hard and not much else.

After the accident, however, Aiden’s world changes as well. He finds Jeni irresistible and instantly pursues her. With some coaxing, she eventually agrees to a date, and the attraction is mutual.

Jeni finds love quickly with Aiden, but trusting him is another issue.  When to trust is tested in many different ways but comes to a head when Aiden is investigated for a serious crime.  As her trust issues spark, she is forced to go through a journey of self-discovery.

She must decide once and for all whether she trusts the man she loves when she’s asked the ultimate question: “Do you trust me?”

This is book one in a series of three.  Book two "Love Me?" was released on November 18th, 2013.

Short Excerpt Trust Me?

I turn to face him; he puts his other arm around me. We are in the same position as before when the last kiss attempt failed. My arms are tight around his neck, his arms around my waist. I look down. He lifts up my chin so I’m lost in his gaze. His hand goes back to my waist. He swallows; I think he’s as nervous as I am. He tilts his head and leans in … I back away quickly.
“What’s wrong?” he asks, looking hurt.
“Oh, no, it’s not you. I think … I might have garlic breath.”
He laughs and pulls me back to him. “So do I.” He pulls me in tighter, and before I know what’s happening, his lips are on mine. I give in and surrender to him completely.
This feels like one of my fantasies, only way, way better. He holds me tight as one hand moves from my waist to caress my cheek, kissing me softly but sensually. My hands move to the back of his head, and I grab a lock of hair in each hand. He moves our bodies so that I’m against the railing at the edge of the deck. He moves his hand from my waist to hold the rail as I still grasp his hair. The kissing becomes feverishly passionate; his tongue against mine as they intertwine with each other. Our breathing becomes faster and erratic. Our kissing becomes more intimate. We are in perfect sync with each other. I pull him closer to me, our whole bodies touching. My heart is pounding fast and hard. His hand moves from my face to the back of my head, pulling me tight. He moves my hair from the side of my neck, breaks our kiss and kisses my neck slowly and seductively. I sigh and breathe in a stuttering motion. I open my eyes to see the waitress standing there, gawking at us. I stiffen as I see her. He pulls back and looks at me. With my eyes, I gesture toward the waitress. He turns, looks, and lets out a little huff. He leans in towards me.
“Now that’s a first kiss,” he whispers as he grabs my hand and leads me over to the table. I can’t help but smile.

Pages: 257
Purchase: Amazon


This is a story about a young man who is no one special. While everyone around him seems to seamlessly fall into place, he simply can’t find a way to belong. Through a freak accident, he suddenly sees the world through different eyes. He understands how everything and everyone works. What will he do with his new gift?

How many people can he save, and how far will he go to try to do something that might be better off left alone?


I am going to be honest, I was not expecting to enjoy this book. But as I read I got into the book. I had to read it until I knew Trey, Ally, and Dan was okay. The author does a great job with details and luring you into the scene. I do feel that the book did drag on a little.... or maybe it was because I was anxious to know what happens! 
The story is about a ... would say normal but... less than average teenager, who was not the popular kid in school... he wasn't even in a clique in school. He had a crush on the woman of his dreams and a bully that liked to push him around. One day that all changed. He started having these "superpowers", a gift.... or was it? In the hopes of doing something useful with his gift he ended up getting him and a few friends from school involved in a dangerous mission. That could of cost them their life, and freedom. 
I will have to read more of his books ... esp so I can know what is happening next!!!!!

A little lie can change the course of everything. . .

Like every other eighteen-year-old in love, Olivia has dreams of spending forever with the love of her life. Luke is all she’s ever wanted – until she overhears something she was never meant to. In a matter of seconds, Olivia’s heart is shattered. Olivia handles it the only way she knows how - she runs- leaving behind her family, friends and the boy she loves.

Seeking comfort and an escape, Olivia finds it in resident bad boy Deacon. He’s everything Luke isn’t – and that’s fine with Olivia.

Now, seven years later, Olivia is older, wiser and headed back to Chicago looking forward to a fresh start and reconnecting with her best friend Pyper. What she doesn’t expect, is to come face to face with the boy she left behind and discover that even though she may have left, her feelings for him didn’t.

Purchase: Amazon both paperback and Kindle version

Two years ago Alysun David's life was normal. Great school. Wonderful boyfriend. But after one night of being abandoned at her high school dance nothing was ever the same. Powers Alysun could never imagine have developed and her anger triggers them. Terrified, her mother constantly keeps them on the move until they finally find themselves in the company of her mother's old friend...who doesn't look that old at all. Even in the small town of Hinckley, Ohio things seem to only get worse for Alysun and her heart longs for the one person that could help her. As her powers progress unwanted attention is aimed Alysun's way and evil won't stay away long. Control is the only thing that can help her but anger is sometimes harder to let go than you think


"I love you, my sun."
I laughed."I'll never understand why you call me that."
"Because that's what you are. You're my light in a long tunnel of darkness."
Laughing louder now."What would you know about darkness? I bet you've never seen a dark day in your life. "
His face became serious. "Only the days I'm not with you."

This book starts off like any normal teenagers life that has been ripped apart. She is taken from her life that she loved and the boyfriend that she loves. Her mom takes her from town to town, only staying a couple months at each place. Aly has gotten used to the idea of always being the new girl, even though she hates it, the stares have became a normal thing. On the way to there next town in Ohio, the author reveals a little about Aly, her power, electricity. In all effort to keep her safe, her mom takes her to a friend of Aly's father, who surprisingly ended up being nothing like what Aly was expecting. But where her mom thought would keep her safe, and unknown to the truth. She was wrong. Aly ends up finding out her true powers and who she really is...
I enjoyed reading the story of Aly and her friends and family, it definitely kept you on your toes, waiting to see what happens next. This book is a book you can not put down until the last page, and even then your itching for more. 
It did have some typos, spelling issues, and grammar issues, but you can get the gist of what the author is trying to say. Hopefully she can get a new editor. :) 
I am giving this book a 5 star rating... even though it did have the grammar problems, I still believe the story deserves it. 
I recommend this book to anyone who likes the whole Paranormal books, or Young Adult books, if you have a few hours to spare, and want to read this book will take you to Hinckley, Ohio.
