IMM #11


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme to share what we bought, checked out, swapped, or won. IMM is hosted by The Story Siren . I decided to add the synopsis of the books .


Review



Hippocampus (The Atlantis Revolution #1)
by Tom Tancin

Publication Date: April 3rd 2012

An Island that Shouldn't Exist... A Life He Didn't Know... A Destiny That Can't Be Escaped 
There was no turning back. We were going to set into motion a revolution that could either save Atlantis or leave it destroyed in the process. 
Sixteen-year-old Trey Atlas' known life is a lie. While he was raised in Miami, Trey was actually born in Atlantis. Sent off the legendary island as a baby for his own safety, Trey is the only living heir to the Atlantean throne. Whether he likes it or not, Trey has to go back to his birthplace and accept his role as the Ruling Prince and lead the revolution to defeat the Knights of the Abyss. Otherwise, thousands of innocent lives and his true family legacy could be lost forever.


Stolen Moments
by Ariel Tachna

Publication Date:  26th 2011 by Dreamspinner Press

After a year apart, teacher Jacob Peters and county judge Beau Braedon decide they can’t live without each other. There are just a few small obstacles to their Alabama love story. Jacob resents Beau’s paranoia about being outed, but Beau is convinced he’ll lose his seat on the bench if he admits to their relationship, and as a teacher at a Christian school, Jacob’s job is even more at risk. They could relocate, but Beau’s mother has Alzheimer’s and can’t be moved. And then there’s the tiny issue of Jacob’s infant son, Finn, and his mother, whom Jacob wed out of duty. In short, they are stuck. 
But Beau has a long-term plan, and he’s prepared to swallow his fears and compromise with Jacob, because sharing stolen moments is no longer enough

Overprotected

Ashlyn: A lonely society princess living in New York City. 
Daddy hired you to be my bodyguard. 
Colin: Childhood enemy, now her protector. 
Daddy thought I’d be safe. He thought I’d never fall in love. He thought he could keep me forever. 
Charles: obsessed with keeping her safe, keeping her his, he hires the one person he knows she could never fall in love with: Colin. 
Daddy was wrong. 


So that's what I got this week

  6. Hi,
    You got some books that seem awesome :) Maybe a strange question, but I saw that you are from Suriname, so do you speak Dutch? Since lots of people in Suriname do, right? *I can be wrong* Because that'd be awesome :D
    Happy reading!

  42. Overprotected sounds a little weird. I mean, the start, okay. But.. please don't call your Dad Daddy! XD I don't know why, usually I have no problems with the term, but in the blurb it all sounds a little weird. Hope you'll enjoy all your reads!

  48. That Hippocampus cover is freaking HOT! It looks so Epic!

    I haven't heard of Stolen Moments.

    I read somewhere that that's the author on the cover of Overprotected. I was kind of scared to check it out, but I see alot of people are vouching for it. Guess that speaks for itself. It will be on my TBR list today!

    Enjoy and Happy Reading,
