A-SIST
Anthropomorphic Sentient Individualized Servile uniT

Rogan is a robot. More specifically, he is an Asist – a personalized humanoid servant that provides protection, assistance, and companionship for a lonely young woman living on her own in the city. Chloe is trying to get her big break, singing at bars and clubs all over the city at night while she pays the bills as a substitute teacher during the day. Ever since she activated him many months ago, Rogan has been her beautiful, dependable, obedient, dead-eyed security blanket.

One morning she is shocked when he disobeys a direct command in an attempt to please her and his dull artificial eyes flash a hint of something new. Is this the result of the adaptive Asist servility programming or is Rogan actually thinking? Can a robot think? Can a robot feel?

As Chloe struggles with these thoughts she is blindsided by the singular Niven Adams, a handsome, confident man with the voice of an angel who is everything she’s ever wanted in a boyfriend. He’s the perfect guy for her, except for one problem. Niven doesn’t approve of Asists and takes an immediate dislike to Rogan. As Niven charms his way deeper and deeper into Chloe’s heart, Rogan tries to convince her that he is more than a mass-produced disposable servant.

With Rogan doing everything in his power to prove that his thoughts and feelings are real and Niven trying to persuade her to abandon her robot and have a normal human relationship, Chloe is trapped between the two things that mean the most to her. Does she embrace her relationship with the blond newcomer, or face that her Asist’s feelings may be more than features of his programming?

What really makes a person a person?
Is it a ticking muscle inside their chest, or is it something more?

Genesis Girl

Seth rolls his eyes. He clearly doesn’t get it.
So I inch closer to him. “For centuries holy people … nuns … monks … hermits … they locked themselves away and took on the sins of the world. They were living sacrifices of prayer, and it made the whole world better. They kept knowledge alive through the Dark Ages. Vestals are living sacrifices too. We are reminders that you don’t need chips and you don’t need texts, and you shouldn’t give away every last piece of yourself for one more hit.”
“Because selling yourself is so much better?”
I square my shoulders. “Yes.”
“But you’ll never have a normal life. Doesn’t that bother you?”
“Of course not. Not when ‘normal’ is so messed up. Not when ‘normal’ gave a whole generation of people brain cancer.”
Two weeks of cloistering. Two weeks of pacing my room, dusting the bookshelves, and pressing my face against the windowpanes, unable to see anything but the walled courtyard below. Two weeks of hoping Fatima, Beau, and Ethan didn’t know about my disgraced situation. Two weeks of reciting my favorite verse from the Vestal Code of Ethics over and over again.
I am loyal. I am discrete. I follow the rules. I picture Fatima brushing her hair to the rhythm of Ms. Corina’s voice at night in our dorm. “One hundred strokes, children,” Charming Corina would tell us. Then her saccharine voice would call out, “I am loyal. I am discrete. I follow the rules.” Brush. Brush. Brush.

Elemental Secrets by Elle Middaugh
(The Essential Elements, #1)
Publication date: February 27th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Synopsis:

Valerie Moore was a beautiful, headstrong girl with below-average social skills and above-average anxiety (including a flair for over-analyzing).

With her mother long deceased, and her father recently deployed, she ends up being sent to live with her eccentric aunt in a tiny town nestled in the mountains of Pennsylvania. But, being a Navy brat had made her into a bit of a loner, and making friends certainly wasn’t her strongest suit. As if the life of a typical teen wasn’t hard enough.

But Valerie soon discovers she’s not a typical teenager. Not by a long shot.

SECRETS are revealed…

…About her family, about her newfound friends and relationships, and about her whole world… Things that have been kept from her for her entire life…

But the biggest secret of all is revealed when Valerie discovers that she has Elemental powers, and a chain of inexplicable and irrevocable events unleashes throughout the little town…

My review for

Elemental Secrets

By

Elle Middaugh

5 out of 5 stars

Just okay, wow. Starts off kind of slow, wondering okay what kind of secrets are people hiding?? Why does this female Loren day stay away from “him” ? Which him? Ha because for sort of new girl Valerie she is attracting two guys and as the story moves further a 3rd guy comes hanging around. Weird things start happening and it’s brushed off as global warming… As Valerie says how is there an Earthquake in Pennsylvania?

Anyhow while staying with her Aunt while her dad is out for work with the military.

She starts learning more about her heritage. These secret elemental powers, that people have and are not allowed to talk about it. But the friends she’s making she realizes they all are hiding something.

Because she feels she will never be one of them, she wants to know more and wishing she was one of them.

This book from after chapter 2 or 3 it was like whoa… I wanted to be Valerie and find out more about Cade and Holden.

(Legacy #1) 
Publication date: September 5th 2014
Genres: Dystopian, Young Adult

Synopsis:

How do you want to feel today?

In 2041, the choice is yours.

San Francisco is deserted, the Bay Bridge bombed, and the BART subway trains grounded. The Guardians, members of an elite and mysterious government-appointed military police force, are maintaining order at all costs—thanks to emotion-altering drugs like Emovere that suppress fear and anxiety. Lex Knightley, daughter of a prominent forensic psychiatrist, risks entering the devastated city to partner with the Resistance, a group of rebels intent upon exposing the dangers of Emovere. Lex discovers an ally in Quin McAllister, a magnetic Guardian Force recruit with a haunting past that binds them together. As she uncovers the secrets of the Guardian Force and confronts the truth about her family, Lex begins to realize that even those closest to her are not quite who they seem.

Legacy is the first book in the Legacy trilogy but can also be enjoyed as a standalone.

Legacy by Ellery A. Kane

My review for

Legacy – # 1

By

Ellery A. Kane

5 out of 5 stars!

What can I say?? This book is a quick ride for sure. I just really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the next book.

It’s San Francisco in the year 2041, things are just so crazy. There is a drug that you take that makes you have no fear or feelings. And we meet Lex whose mother help create this drug, Dr. Knightley.

Lex is set off on a mission to find the resistance that her mother had been in contact. However Lex finds out so much more and makes a few friends in trying to do as her mom asked of her.

But not everyone wants to help. Lex has to listen to her guy feeling. There are some foes among the resistance.

Finding out what the government wants to do with the drug and their soldiers will make you wonder for sure.

Everyone should check this book out. Quick read and some adventure it’s awesome.

BEAUTIFUL by Ella Bordeaux
Release Date: June 7, 2016
Genre: YA

SYNOPSIS:

Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her.  He wanted … needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to mask with an amazing smile.

When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only grew when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.

For the first time in months, she felt alive.

The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again … the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robbed her of any chance of happiness.

Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.

But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?

Excerpt

After practice, I looked up and saw Skylar in the bleachers. She was sitting on the opposite side of the field from everyone else, and I immediately knew why. Jenny would agitate her if she’d sat on the home side.
Running over, I took off my helmet, and Skylar walked down to the field.
“Hey,” she said with the cutest damn smile.
God, the things this girl does to my heart.
“Hey back atcha.”
“Smith! Get in the shower now!” Coach yelled out.
Skylar looked at Coach and scrunched up her face. “I didn’t get you in trouble, did I?”
Laughing, I said, “Nah. Besides, seeing your beautiful smile is worth it.”
Her eyes lit up, and my stomach felt like I was on a damn roller coaster.
“I have tonight off work,” she said.
My heart started beating faster, and it wasn’t from all the running I had just done in practice. “Oh, yeah?”
“I was wondering if you might…like to go to a movie? I mean, it would be a double date ’cause Mitch and Michelle would be there.”
I wiggled my eyebrows. “A date, huh?”
“A double date,” she replied with a chuckle.
“Smith! Less than thirty seconds to get your ass moving and into the shower!”
Skylar glanced over to Coach again and then back to me. She jutted her lip out into a pout and said, “You’d better go before you get in trouble.”
My heart stopped as my eyes fell to those lips. I was falling hard for Skylar, harder than I’d ever dreamed I could.
I started to run backward. Winking, I said, “Count me in!”
