Carbon Replacements (The McAllister Justice Series #4)Carbon Replacements by Reily Garrett

4 stars

Carbon Replacements is book #4 of the McAllister justice action adventure series. All the books are set in and around Portland, Oregon.

Remie is a medical examiner and has recently moved back to her home state. The book opens with a brutal attack on her and two students. When police officer Billy McAllister and his partner are called to the remote crime scene, it’s Billy who rescues Remie and agrees to guard her in hospital.

Men Don’t Love Women Like You by G.L. Lambert Book Review

I have been having a great time with online dating as per my previous post, Is Romance only in Books? Where have all the good men gone?  so I thought I would do a book review on a book that I read called  Men Don’t Love Women Like You: The Brutal Truth about Dating, Relationships, and How to Go from Placeholder to Game Changer by G.L. Lambert.

Here is a partial summary of the book taken from Amazon.com, if this does not grab your attention…….

Men Don t Love Women Like You, is a brutally honest manual that will transform you from typical to priceless. The secrets in this book will guide you step by step as you learn what men think, how to counter their Bullsh*t, and the exact ways to turn the table in your favor. No matter who the man is, how young, old, rich, or popular he may be, this book will show you how to attain power over him. From the first meeting to the first date. From a new relationship hitting its first bump to an old relationship on its last legs. You will learn to dominate men in ways you never dreamed of. You will become what you were always meant to be A Goddess in the flesh.

Now, this book appealed to me because I am a straight forward, tell it like it is, not going to sugar coat it kind of girl. So this book was right up my alley according to the summary of the book on Amazon. Now mind you, I am not young so I have been to the circus and have seen the show so I was not expecting this book to teach me anything I did not already know, but was I WRONG!!!

The book is basically divided into two sections: the first being get your own sh!t straight before dating. Be honest with yourself and your issues, stop blaming your problems on your parents, your friends, the mailman, etc, really work through your past, comes to terms and move on empowered. Now, I am a true believer in this process and I have done the work on myself but it was nice to have a reminder and the opportunity to touch base again. This section is very helpful in how to go through that process.

The second section of the book is where the party gets started and explains how to be a “Goddess in the flesh”, how to date in “Sparta”, with the benefit of a man’s point of view, which I found very beneficial. You learn how specifically the first and second dates should go, how to be a game changer and to always put yourself before any man.

Overall, the book provides great insight to the male mind during the dating process, how to date smart and to get what you really want in a relationship long term. This book would be a great read at any age, especially if you are wanting a long term relationship. I also recommend reading this book slowly and reading it more than once. It is worth it! For the love, please don’t ever sleep with a man on the first date!!!

P.S.  Wish my luck on my first date tonight using what I learned in this book!! Update to follow!!!!

Until Next Time!!!

Barb has been reading In A Jam by Cindy Dorminy

39338008

Even as author Cindy Dorminy ticks off the required romance tropes—from the Meet Cute, to the Goal/Issue that drives them apart, to the HEA (happy ever after) required of all romances—she not only makes them her own, but she makes them hilarious.Andie Carson isn’t your usual romantic heroine. She’s defiantly damaged Boston Southie, and just fine with that. With the help of her favorite boys (Jack Daniel and Sam Adams) she can handle anything life slings at her, even Thursday. What she’s completely unprepared for, is the discovery that the beloved Granny she thought dead for years had actually just died, leaving her millions in lottery winnings. There’s just one catch: to get the money, she has to give up her boys—Jack, Sam, and all their friends—and run Granny’s…
