My first Rockstar book!!! And, it was pretty cute lol


Ace Caplin is a rock start destined for fame but plagued by addiction. That addiction becomes responsible for his plunge to rock bottom. As he begins to put the pieces of his life back together, he’s finally ready to join his band mates on tour again. Little does he know, he’s been replaced. Will this discovery push him over the edge into a drug filled abyss? Or will he make an unforgettable come back?

-Enter Melody-

Mel was at one time an outgoing girl with a passion for life but a couple of years ago her family life was turned upside down by her father’s deceit. She’s left with a broken heart and an emotional scar so deep she may neck trust again. With a little brother to help take care of, college to finish, and trust issues to sort out, will she find love again? This is the journey of two very different individual’s whose lives intertwine and get the chance to have something neither of them ever thought they deserved – Love.

Ace is amazingly cute, and I added him to my list of book boyfriends. Bad boy with a past who has a heart of gold, and can make a girl turn into putty by a look. Yup, I believe he is my new book boyfriend, I hope the others don’t find out 😉

I rate Ace’s Wild 5/5 because it was adorably written, with the right amount of drama and sadness.

Media Madness Monday – Nathan Fillion

Image result for nathan fillionIt is super cold.  Husband is gone to do something, kiddo is in her room gaming, puppo wrapped up in a blanket.  Here I am bundled up in a blanket, watching one of my favorite shows, Castle.  The nerd in me has a HUGE crush on Nathan Fillion, ever since 2 Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place when he played Johnny.  There is just something so adorable about him.

You are probably wondering why I am including Nathan Fillion in a title of a post called “Media Madness Monday” .  It is because he was in my favorite TV shows and movies that involved books.  In Castle, he plays Richard Castle, a mystery writer who is friends with fellow authors such as James Patterson, and others whom he gets ideas on solving murders that happen in the show that he would be confused about.  He is partnered with Kate Beckett, an NYPD detective, whom he bases his Nikki Heat series (yes, they actually do sell those books, under Richard Castle, check it out . . . seriously).  There is a lot of flirting back and forth between the two characters, until they finally get together after a few seasons, and . . . well, I won’t tell you the rest.

Another reason why I absolutely adore him is his role in Much Ado About Nothing, where he plays Dogberry.  Have you ever seen this rendition?  It is black and white, and is in true William Shakespeare language.  The movie is up there with my Midsummer Nights Dream (no, not the one with Michelle Pfeiffer).

Outside of the book realm, he plays my favorite captain, Captain Malcolm in Firefly.  Unfortunately it was cancelled after the first season.  Which is surprising since it has a lot of followers, as well as spinoffs.

What is your favorite Nathan Fillion character?  Or maybe favorite murder mystery stories? Any recommendations for me to try?
