Ever want to get the party started wherever you go? I know I do... Ok I don't always but I always wish there were better ways to share my music. Well the people art Kinivo understand and want to help. They have the new ZX100 mini speaker. What does it do? It connects to your iPod, MP3 player, computer, tablet and helps you pump up the jams (I am so dorky right now.)
I love that the mini speaker clearly increased the sound of what I was listening to. It took me a moment to realize that I had to not only increase the volume on the speaker but also on the device I was using. However after I figured that out the sound was amazing! Enough to fill a living room. I could imagine that at a small house party it would be the perfect solution to your party playlist. Bonus! Once you screw the top open it increases the bass and the sound is booming.
The only downside I found is that you a tethered to whatever device you are using. Which just means you can't use your iPhone in a different room than the speaker. Also the cord isn't long. Small price to pay for the sound.
The speaker is pretty small and even though you couldn't stick it in any pocket if you have a backpack, purse or large pockets you will have kicking bass to go.
Now 2 of you can win one! Rules in the rafflecopter. Good luck!

|Borrowed from Jill Prand|
This is a story by Jill Prand about a girl and her struggle to live her own independent life as a professional woman in New York. She has it all. She brings in millions for her firm, she has a cool steady boyfriend, she has friends that are as successful as her that she can be tear up the town with all night. But then when she least expects it. "He" shows up. You know who I mean...the big "he". The big "He" that she had booted out of her life a long time ago when he broke her heart but always wondered if things had been a little bit different they might have had a good thing going. And not only is he back but he has dared to be as big and as successful as her. And not only does he still have feelings for her he refuses to leave. What's a girl to do?
I think this is a great steamy book to curl up with at night. If you love reading about other people's drama and other people's romance then this is the story for you. If you love a bit more than the traditional love story this novel never ceases to please. It's very passionate and brisk. The story starts off with a bang and keeps it up as it goes. And I really like it because it's relate-able. We all have that one person we thought was out of our lives a long time ago that just makes an appearance and turns your world upside down.
The one thing that this book suffers from is some muddles narration. It's set in first person and I don't personally think that it helps the story along where a full blown omniscient narrator would have done a lot better. Lisa starts off as a very self deprecating and doubty woman, even when she has it all together on the outside. And while we all have our doubty moments I as the reader want to know that I can trust this character I'm following. If I can't trust them I can't get into them.
And I will warn you that this book starts out with and keeps up a very sexual tone. This is not a great thing to give to your teen girl. The one thing I kept thinking was that this wasn't like one of my grandmother's amish romances stories at all. This has some very "grown-up" stuff in it.
But I really appreciated the sense of urban flair to this piece. Maybe it's because I've been reading too many novels that have me in the rural Midwest recently. It's nice to have a cityscape as your back ground for a change. This is a great story coming from the heart of the Big Apple, these characters cannot be contained in a smaller town. They are just too big for that.

|Dark and Stormy|
This is a story by Felicia Star about a coven of witches that meet once enough to cast a spell that will change someone's life for the better. First thing on the agenda this month? Enchanting a special pair of red pumps so that two of a certain witches employees can find some "balance" to their workaholic life. Yeah I think you know what kind of balance that I'm talking about. The specific balance that these two gorgeous heels provide is enough make sure that this book is full of hot and steamy moments nonstop. But first a little housekeeping.
Disclaimer: I received a digital copy of this book to review. The winner will receive a digital copy of their own. All the opinions in this article are my own.
I thought that this book has a classic example of what I call "assisted attraction". You know those two people in your life that you know would be perfect for each other but don't seem to think that the other exists? Haven't you ever wanted to lock them in a closet (or in a less illegal fashion give them tickets to a movie) and help love along a bit? Well this book is a great example of a group of people that have to work their own brand of magic to help get the fires of romance burning.
There were sometimes that I didn't think that the language of the woven was very realistic. I know that the writer is trying to describe a nice politically correct coven of witches that all loved and respected each other but in the trade we got very stiff and two dimensional witches. I know that if you got the women of my family together to start a coven you would have a completely different story on your hands. Also as a guy I think that I wouldn't need to be put under a spell to understand that a woman is attractive to me. The male love interest of this story seems a little thick if he needs to be enchanted with shoes to notice that he has a perfectly willing female to notice him. Oh and be warned that this book has some sexual content in it. You could probably read it at work but when you're finished you might not want your teen daughter reading it.
But above all of that I did like the sense of magic (especially witches magic) to be put to good use int his world. I think we see so many evil witches there days that a community of nice witches that show compassion towards others a very refreshing trend. And for all of her politically correctness in describing the coven the author really does write a good love story.
In conclusion this book does provide a great read to carry with you for those odd reading breaks during your day or a rainy day book for those that want to curl up and while the day away. And now you can read a digital copy or your very own. Rules in the rafflecopter. Good luck and have fun.
