5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT, 21 July 2015
I saw this slicer and knew I had to have one. I managed to find a company in Germany that sold me this way way cheaper than here. I'm thrilled with this. Slicing bread (fresh homemade), vegetables and cooked meats no problem. Cleaning it is a breeze as well. It's easy to operate, and is very well made, such a classy looking item. I'm so glad I bought this as I have rheumatism in my wrists and cutting by hand is a problem. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars DIDNT DO ANYTHING FOR ME, 20 July 2015
Devlin is president of the local MC he's tall sexy and plenty of women want him. Kaylie has just finished high school and is hoping to go to the local college, she also waitresses at the local diner. Devlin has wanted Kaylie for a long time but he must wait as she's too young. All bets are off now she's turned eighteen.

There were bits of this story that came across as a bit odd to me. SPOILERS FOLLOW. Devlin had approached Kaylie's mother and made some kind of deal with her regarding Kaylie, which I found unbelievable that she would be doing a deal about her daughter while still a minor. As for Kaylie she seemed a bit thick. I also didn't like the way she just fell in with whatever Devlin wanted. Devlin had put the word out that nobody was to date Kaylie while he waited for her to come of age. That made me laugh as he still had plenty of women while he was waiting.

Overall it's a short story that suffers because of that the plot is underdeveloped as are the characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars JUST OKAY, 20 July 2015
This review is from: Offside (Kindle Edition)
I've been meaning to read this book for ages and have only just got around to it. Thomas Malone the lead male is 18 and plays soccer. The whole story is from his POV, at first I thought I wasn't going to like him, he's completely self serving. He's never had a girlfriend, never been on a date, he just hooks up with girls for sex and usually just for his pleasure. His father is the local mayor so Thomas rules the roost at school and does pretty much as he likes. The girls never seem to learn their lesson with him, they never give up trying for more. Then a new girl starts school, she doesn't even give him the time of day, she won't even tell him her name, of course he sees this as a challange. The story then details their relationship with all its ups and downs, there seemed to be more downs to me.

There are plenty of other characters in this story, most notably for me were the heroine's father Greg I loved him. But Thomas's father was despicable a very nasty piece of work. Some of the conversations between him and Thomas seemed very inappropriate to me.

As the story progressed I did warm to Thomas more, but there were aspects of his character that made him appear unstable, he was definitely emotionally stunted. The heroine I quite liked, she had a temper but then Thomas would make a saint lose their patience. Overall this story was too long IMO. It's very much like Twighlight but without the vampires, it's easy to recognise scenes from that story in this. I also think it would have been better had we got the heroine's POV. Both lead characters have secrets that if known would cause mayhem. I wavered between 2 and 3 stars but plumped for 3 this was good in parts but lagged in others the constant drama was a bit much as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars JUST BAD!, 18 July 2015
I have loved this author's other MC series, so was keen to read this a first book in her new MC The Dirty F*****s. Wow am I disappointed the characters are not relatable I found it impossible to feel their connection the whole story was so cliched. But worst of all for me was the heroine she was more alpha than James the hero she made him seem like a real pussy, I really disliked her. I don't mind a strong female lead but she must at least retain her femininity, I wasn't keen that she referred to other women as bi***es. I don't find the guy on the cover appealing either. This is a real miss for me.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: French T55 5x1.5Kg (Grocery)
I've baked bread occasionally but never that successfully. I've recently tried the no knead recipes I can't say I was very impressed with the results. Then I saw this flour and the great reviews, I love French bread so I thought why not give it a try. Wow I followed the recipe of the back of the packet and am over the moon with the result, the three batons are just like if not better than my local bakery. I knew as I was mixing the ingredients that the dough felt right. I'm so glad I tried this, I think I will have to give some of their other flours a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, 9 July 2015
I bought this bundle direct from Cosco which worked out cheaper than the cost of the blender on its own if I had bought directly from Vitamix, and well over a hundred pounds cheaper than shown here. I thought long and hard about which brand to go for once I decided I wanted one of these machines. I boiled it down to Blendtec or Vitamix. I chose Vitamix as they have a much stronger presence here in the UK a dedicated website, and service centre, whereas as far as I can see Blendtec do not. There are other brands but they mostly offer a limited guarantee they say 5 or 7 years depending on which brand your looking at, but if you look further often the jug, blades and other parts are only guaranteed for a year. Vitamix offer a full 7 years on everything.

I've not had this blender long, but straight away as I unpacked it you can tell that it's a quality item build standard is top notch. It even tells you the date that it was made. Then it took minutes registering it with Vitamix for the 7 year guarantee.
I couldn't wait to get started using it, so my first thing was a green smoothie, Vitamix advise that you follow the recipes in the dedicated TNC cookbook, till you become accustomed to using the machine. I then made strawberry ice cream using fresh strawberries I had frozen myself. Both the smoothie and ice cream make anything you can buy in the supermarket pale into insignificance, there's no comparison. I made peanut butter that was so easy and I know exactly what's in it, just peanuts no additives. It keeps in the fridge for a while as well. Next I'm going to try out some soup recipes. I also love the iced cappuccino. The dry grains jug comes in the bundle so far I have used it to grind coffee in seconds. You can grind wheat and make your own flour and then bread which the dry grains jug will knead as well.
Lots of people comment on the noise, that was my biggest worry. Yes it's loud but no where near as bad as I was expecting and let's be honest it's never on for long as it's super quick at any task you do in it. I'm really pleased I bought this it was money well spent.

3.0 out of 5 stars OKAY READ, 3 July 2015
First read for me by this author. This is the first part of a series of short stories that are now available in a complete collection on kindle. This first story was free at the time I downloaded it.
Three years ago Brandon jilted Charity on the eve of their wedding to run off to Hollywood to pursue an acting career. Present day Charity has moved on with her life and been dating James for the past year all is going well till Brandon shows up in town.
While I quite liked this there's the cheating aspect I'm not keen on, Charity seems to fall straight back into Brandon's arms without remembering that she's got a long term boyfriend. There was also the fact that Charity and Brandon had lived different lives since Brandon left three years previously they just seemed poles apart, it felt like neither would fit into the others lifestyle. I liked Brandon he was remorseful about how he treated Charity in the past, Charity might be considered weak for giving in to Brandon, but the truth is she still has feelings for him. Even so I still wasn't keen on her. This ends on a cliffhanger. I'm not sure that I want to read more in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars BIG BAD BIKER, 1 July 2015
This author doesn't hold anything back in her MC romances the heroes are big bad tattooed and hot. They don't romance the heroine's with hot dates, flowers and chocolates either. Once one of these guys claims the woman he wants that's it there's no turning back. Roman is the Grizzlies MC enforcer and he's the biggest and baddest of them all. 2 years previously Roman had spent a few weeks one summer with Sally he'd swept her off her feet literally. Unknown to him she's got a secret that he's soon to discover, when he does it's a game changer and Sally will have no choice but to give in. As usual apart from the main couple there's plenty going on elsewhere in this story making it a real page turner. I loved it. Thank you to the author for allowing me a ARC for an honest review.

2.0 out of 5 stars SEX AND MORE SEX, 1 July 2015
I'm not sure what I expected from this story, but I certainly wasn't expecting an out and out sex fest. The story involves Tyler Bell who is a catholic priest and Poppy a poor little rich girl trying to find herself.

Right from the very first page it's blatantly obvious that Tyler should never have become a priest, he doesn't have the calling or vocation. His reason for becoming one was a bit surprising, if anything it's the last job he should want to do. He first meets Poppy when she turns up to confession, I was surprised by that as this girl is not a catholic. It's also very obvious from their first meeting that she has set her sights on seducing Tyler. Mind you she doesn't have to try very hard, he's a very willing victim. I didn't like how quickly they started having sex, I thought that at least Tyler would struggle a little bit with his conscience and try to remember the vows he'd taken, but no, Poppy only has to flutter her eyelashes and he's dropping his trousers. But what bothered me as well was his constant dropping of the 'F' word. Poppy came across as a bit of a whiner she's from a rich family and has had every advantage but isn't happy, and ends up stripping at an exclusive club. I thought she was a user and just plain nasty. Add in a weak hero who's a priest, this was not a good read IMO. The author has taken a taboo subject and instead of an heart searching emotional read this is just plain tacky.

2.0 out of 5 stars SPOILERS, 24 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Lingus (Kindle Edition)
SPOILERS.....................

Kat is dragged along to a porn convention by one of her best friends Nikki, both of them like porn and watching it they even have their favourite actors. Their other friend Zoey is in the business. Nikki is there to meet and get an autograph from her favourite porn star Calum. While waiting for Nikki Kat meets a really cute guy named Tristan they get talking and strike up a rapport, they bump into each other throughout the rest of the day even sharing lunch. Kat really likes Tristan then she sees why he's there. She spots him at a booth with women surrounding him he's in his other personna Robbie Lingus! Tristan likes Kat and wants to be friends. Of course Kat wants more than friends but knows she couldn't cope with him having sex with other women, so being friends will have to be enough.

Like this author's other two books I've read this is a slow burn. I mostly liked Tristan his and Kat's scenes together were funny, at times laugh out loud funny. He told Kat he doesn't have girlfriends as that wouldn't be fair considering what he does, which was nice it's a shame he kept giving her mixed signals. Kat was fairly likeable but there were moments I wanted to shake her. As to the other characters who were Kat's friends I wasn't so keen. Nikki was a bit too aggressive, Zoey was just weird there were more than a few times I wondered if there was more going on between Kat and her. Josh their gay friend behaved like a schoolboy. Overall the supporting characters were a bit too OTT.

What I didn't like... Well there were only a few female porn stars featured but I didn't like the implication that they were just whores while any male stars Tristan included were hot, sexy, honourable upstanding guys. Why female authors are so hard on their own sex I don't get. It's annoying.
I also didn't like that for most of the story Tristan keeps Kat firmly in the friend zone, that is till her friends tell her to stop burying her head in the sand and stop hanging on waiting for Tristan to see her as more. Then lo and behold the minute she's got a date with another guy he doesn't like it, what a hypocrite at this point in the story he's away filming, boning goodness knows how many women. I'm sure the author didn't mean it to come across that his interest in Kat changed the minute she was going out on a date but that's how I read it. It was never explained why Tristan was in the business, he had a good job at a law firm, he was studying to be a lawyer he had an inheritance from his grandmother so he wasn't hurting for cash. I also thought it odd that he liked to keep his Robbie Lingus character a secret, he worried that his family would find out. So it didn't make sense why he was doing it.
Overall this story went on too long for me it lost its way during the middle. This would have worked better as a novella IMO.
