Non-Fiction Reads: Game of Thrones: Prophecies and Dreams

My Reviews
A lot of tidbit you won’t see on TV!


If you download the ebook, which is free for Kindle Unlimited members, it has a note that states that the book is constantly updated, so the audio and print may not match up.

The audio does not cover the last 13 episodes of the series which are being split into two seasons. The first half just concluded and the second half will play out next year.

The audio covers all that has happened so far in both the books and the television show. (see note above) The TV show is ahead time-line wise of the books, as Mr. Martin has deadline issues. There are still 2 more books due in the series.

This is a review of the various prophecies and dreams within the world of The Game Of Thrones as well as the books the show is based on. Many of these are not covered on the show as there is just not enough time to cover it all. The show-runners for GOT have expressed their desire to try and stay close to the over-all themes and stories from the books, so the unseen foreshadowing from the book should still hold true for the show as it does in the books.

There are some specific visions shown to Daney that I find most curious! Plus the most delectable one told to Cerci having to do with her being murdered by her younger brother! In her arrogance she has seemed to have forgotten that Jamie is actually her younger brother too! Even though I knew this already, I still like hearing about her demise because I really hate her.


Leanne Yau presents the information in a clear and precise manner. She is very easy to understand as well as being pleasant to listen to.


I give this a 5 for what it is, but also want to put a warning out there for those that are just starting the series either in print or TV, there will be spoilers.

Good info for catching up on things!

This is a good catch up on things you may of missed so far as well as a nice refresher for before the season of the show starts. It also covers some theories and speculations, that as a fan, you know you have.

Leanne Yau does an excellent job of narrating this Non-Fiction read about a Fiction series. She presents the information in a clear and precise manner.

Review: Ken (Bad Boys for Hire, Book 2) by Rachelle Ayala

My Reviews
I love it and want more!


This is number 2 in the Bad Boys for Hire series, and my first of this series, and author. I do want to read number one now and definitely am looking forward to number 3. I also want to read other titles by this author.

I loved this story. It’s so much more than a man rescuing a damsel in distress. Both Ken and Jolie have their own issues in life to work out so that they can move on in love and living. Ken has always been living but hasn’t taken the time to love. Jolie has taken the time to love, but on her terms. She has never truly lived which forces her to inner reflect if she has truly loved.

Ken is the equivalent of Jerry O’Connell from Stand By Me. He was a chubby child that grew up to be a super fit hottie! He took a big header while surfing and while his career is on hold so his head can heal, we moonlights as a Bad Boys for Hire! Yes, it’s an escort service, but sex is specifically a no-no and is written into the contract.

Jolie is a bride without a groom! Her intended was caught literally with his pants down the night before the wedding by her bridesmaids, so in an attempt to keep Jolie from looking foolish, Ken is hired to be a stand-in.

Ken recognizes Jolie from their childhood school days and now that he is no longer the pumpkin boy, he wants to see if he can get her to fall for him. Jolie on the other hand has no clue this fit and fabulous man before her is that same little boy that was in her play at school so long ago.

I completely adored Ken’s interactions with his sister, Carol, who fell off a mountain while climbing it during a winter storm, and now is in a wheelchair. He was an awesome brother and friend and I look forward to the next book which features Carol in her own HEA!

Chris Abell was excellent in his narration. Both male and female characters were completely believable and it was easy to get lost in the story. He does remind me a bit of Casey Kasem but unless you are in your thirties or older, you probably have no idea whom I’m talking about.

I give this 5 of 5 stars, and recommend it especially as a palate cleanser for in between the heavier, more dark reads.

Review: His Pretend Baby by Theodora Taylor

My Reviews

Love someone because of their differences not in spite of them!


I am an audiobook devourer, at minimum a book a day, seriously, I read A LOT, and mostly romances! I am also a writer, so am aware of the story from a technical point of view. That being said, I still love getting lost in the adventure of the story put before me and still get all the feels from the flutters to the knots and even the tears and the giggles. From the blurb of a book combined with the author’s style, if I have read other titles by them, I have a fairly good guess as to what is afoot in the story. It is not quite often that I say to myself, “I didn’t see that coming”. This story got me twice. Well….. Mostly once with the second time being a “you better be lying” moment!

There was a twist that was totally new and, yes, I didn’t see that coming! That was quickly followed by the second surprise that I didn’t see coming and was more of a “you better be lying” moment that had my heart in palpitations. Seriously, I had to take a break and breathe it out … and maybe do some creative cursing to the abandoned rant that had been building inside of me.

I loved it but would have to say to those of you that are like me and need that HEA, be patient. Keep that hope in your heart and it will all work out in the end.

Now to the book itself!

His Pretend Baby is a story about loving someone because of their differences not in spite of them.

The main character, Go, took me for a loop trying to figure out who was actually being addressed as there were too many names being thrown about. Let me simplify it for you. Rodrigo is his birth name, Go is his preferred nickname, Burger is the name his family calls him because he has Asperger. Total A-holes right?

So Nyla dated Marco, which is Go’s brother. It didn’t work out with him, but they have a drunken one-night-stand that results in a pregnancy. On the way to tell his current girlfriend what happened, Marco dies in a car accident. Sounds like a jerk move, but in the immortal words of Ross, “they were on a break!”

Go gets the confession out of Nyla before his family finds out and wants her to marry him and say the baby is his in an effort to keep the child with the family. He worries she will leave and the loss will drive his parent’s over the edge.

The two of them have chemistry but Nyla doesn’t like lying. Go manipulates the situation to his advantage and gets what he wants and a lot of what he doesn’t. Go’s perfectly executed life is supposed to go according to “the plan” of his own creation. Nyla is an expert at disruption and puts her skills to good use!

The narrator is Clementine Dove and she does well with multiple characters. Each person has their own voice and it is easy to get lost in the story.

This was my first time reading anything by this author and I definitely want to read more, but I will keep this experience in mind as I moved forward.

I give this 5 of 5 stars!
