Rise of the Elgen (Michael Vey #2)

Michael and his friends, are heading home to Michael's apartment to regroup after their first battle with the Elgen. There's Jack and Wade, who used to be enemies of Michael, but since he saved their lives now they're his devoted friends, Taylor, Michael's girlfriend, she's electric like Michael one of her powers is that she can read minds, Ostin, Michael's best friend and partner in crime, and several electric kids who are loyal to Michael, Zeus, Grace, Abigail, and McKenna. The kids call themselves the Electroclan and they know that they need to come up with a way to get Michael's mom back from the Elgen and fast. But first, they need to use the info that Grace downloaded from the Elgen's computers to find out just where they are hiding her. They need a safe place to do that, and the first place that comes to mind is Michael's apartment, but what they don't realize is that the Elgen is already there, and at Ostin's apartment too, waiting for them to come back so they can capture all of the kids again. The Electroclan must outsmart them, figure out where Michael's mom is and get her back and they must do all that without getting captured again.

This book was a wild ride, with tons of action, the Elgen try again and again to capture the Electroclan and at first they seem to be successful. But the kids are more resourceful than they are given credit for and they are able to escape trap after trap and even escape from the guards after being caught. The plot in this book moves quickly, it didn't take me long to read, mostly because I wanted to find out what happened next. The ending is a cliff-hanger leaving you wanting to know more of the story! I can't wait for the next Michael Vey adventure!

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
