Meeting my mom did not go exactly as I had always envisioned it, but at least I wasn't sent on a mission to kill her. I still think the world may be a better place if that was a possibility though. It has been a couple of weeks since that great day and my life is moving forward at the speed of light.
Plans are being made to welcome another new family member and that necessitates a change of venue from my cherished penthouse apartment. I knew it was coming, but I tried to avoid it for as long as possible. It is a good thing I don't totally hate the new place.
I only have a chance to spend one night before I receive a call from my father, the non-biological one. It turns out the Collective hasn't given up on me, yet, and they think kidnapping my real father is the way to win my heart. They are hilarious.
The gang and I have to rush to the rescue. With the new family member making my life just a little bit difficult, I have to rely heavily on my family and friends. It turns out there are some people I didn't know belonged in either one of those categories, but it is nice to have them along.
This is book sixth in the Nyx Slaughter series. It is a companion book to the seventh book and will lead right into the next book, Night Rises.

“How is our little princess doing?” Jake asks rushing over to me. He has something in his hand he is trying to hide, while I am trying my hardest not to break out laughing at the situation. Jake actually running away from a girl is a new one.
“Love, has he gone delusional again?” Sebastian questions joining us with the stroller he found.
“No, now let’s go,” Jake says grabbing the cart out of my hand as he hurries to the checkout. I am going to have to find out just what little miss helpful said to get him moving. It might be useful later. If nothing else, I can taunt him about it.
“I guess that is our cue to leave. He forgot his meds,” I explain to the woman and follow after him. I hope he doesn’t damage Peanut’s new things. As fast as he is moving, he is most likely going to run into something. When we get to the checkout he is buying whatever he was hiding from me and a lady is ringing our cart up.
“This yours?” she asks not halting her scanning.
“Looks like it,” I reply and head to the keypad to scan my card. I am a little afraid what the bottom line is going to be on this haul, but it is for Peanut, so no amount is too much. The lady gives me the total and I hit the necessary buttons to draw this excursion to a close.
I cannot wait to get back home and start in on Alex. I don’t know if the thirty-minute drive works in his favor because I will have plenty of time to stew about being moved into a new home without being told.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to read this one yet and there are no reviews online. However it does have a 5.0 star rating on Goodreads. I will add my review as soon as I have read it.

From the Author
I love books. Until recently, I kept to just reading them, but ideas for characters and scenes took control of my mind and made me have to get those ideas down. I started with a series I called Avery Clavens. I enjoyed the world I created there, but it was really still the world we all live in so I decided to move on to something just a little bit different.
In my Nyx Slaughter series, the real world is still out there, but my characters have their own little corner to call their own. I love that it is a bit more fantasy based and I am able to make more things up as I go. I can see at least three more books coming from that world with the possibility of having some different characters' points of view.
This whole writing thing is a hobby for me. I sit down on the weeknights and weekends and just float over to my other worlds for a while. Other hobbies of mine include: drawing, baking, arts and crafts, motorcycles, hockey, and archery. I like to think I have eclectic tastes where my hobbies are concerned. I love to laugh and try to make myself smile at least once a day. With the crazy thoughts going on in my head that usually isn't hard.
