Overkill

Vanessa is tired of her boyfriend Simon’s promiscuous vampire ways and stakes him, repeatedly- not close enough to the heart to kill him but close enough to make it hurt. But now she’s had a change of heart and considers embracing the sexual world of the vampire instead of being jealous of it.

Witch in the Middle

Ariadne is a witch torn between two men, a vampire and a human. Her heart doesn’t want to choose but the men force her to make a decision that could break her heart, unless with the help of the Goddess all three of them can come to a mutually acceptable…and enjoyable agreement.

When It Storms

Devon’s witchy girlfriend becomes insatiable every time a storm rolls around and he’s more than happy to give her exactly what she needs.

Shannon’s never seen her vampire boyfriend, Logan, vamp out before. Then one night he has to kill to save her life. Can she ever look at him the same way again?

The Questioning Concubine


Elita, a pure blood witch, has come home to find who or what killed her parents and to take her rightful place as the head of the coven. After five years of investigating and exhausting all conventional methods at her disposal, she decides to do the one thing a good witch should never do—summon a demon. The demon is not what she expected. Elita is soon swept up in his power… and her own.

Renata

The residents of the sleepy little town of Flushing, Michigan had no idea a vampire lived among them, seducing and drinking from all the men in town. Renata walked among them, blending in, taking only what she needed. One night, while she was on the prowl for fresh blood at a carnival, a handsome carnie caught her eye. She had no way of knowing he was a vampire hunter and was there for her.

Sea of Blood

Liana made Nerissa a vampire centuries ago in the islands of Greece but she’s never tired of her companion or the way she hunts her prey.


A Halloween to Remember

What says Halloween better than a wild party at an old Victorian mansion complete with its own cemetery? Perhaps meeting the man of your dreams thanks to the magic of Halloween.

Adena can’t believe her eyes when she spots Dimitri in the library- he looks like something straight off the cover of a historical romance novel-the type of guy she’s always dreamed of. Too bad he disappears before she has the chance to introduce herself. When she finally spots him again later that night she decides she’s not letting him get away again. Adena thinks she’s finally found the one. Until she wakes up alone the next morning- in the cemetery.

Halloween magic brought them together but will it be strong enough to keep them together?

Kendra, fifteen, hasn't felt safe since she began to recall devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse, especially because she still can't remember the most important detail-- her abuser's identity. Frightened, Kendra believes someone is always watching and following her, leaving menacing messages only she understands. If she lets her guard down even for a minute, it could cost Kendra her life. To relieve the pressure, Kendra cuts; aside from her brilliantly expressive artwork, it's her only way of coping. Since her own mother is too self-absorbed to hear her cries for help, Kendra finds support in others instead: from her therapist and her art teacher, from Sandy, the close family friend who encourages her artwork, and from Meghan, the classmate who's becoming a friend and maybe more. But the truth about Kendra's abuse is just waiting to explode, with startling unforeseen consequences. Scars is the unforgettable story of one girl's frightening path to the truth



Reasons Not To Hurt Yourself

Reasons Not To Hurt Yourself
by Cheryl Rainfield


  • Because you do not deserve to be hurt, not by anyone, not even yourself;
  • Because you deserve the same compassion, kindness, and love that everyone else does, and that you would give to a friend;
  • Because if you hurt yourself, you are repeating and reinforcing what your abusers or people who put you down told you, and none of that is true;
  • Because any relief you may get from hurting yourself is only fleeting and will not last, and because you will need to keep hurting yourself more frequently and worse to get that tiny bit of relief, and may end up doing permanent damage or may even inadvertently kill yourself;
  • Because you have already been through so much pain and do not need more pain added to that;
  • Because you have a voice and have a right to be heard;
  • Because you deserve to have compassion for yourself, the way others have it for you;
  • Because there are safer, gentler ways to find some relief and you deserve to find those ways;
  • Because even if you do not believe it, hurting yourself will hurt the people who truly love you;
  • Because you deserve to be treated gently and with love, not with hate;
  • Because you are not to blame for anything that happened to you as a child;
  • Because you will hurt your body and your body is not to blame for anything;
  • Because hurting yourself is abusing yourself, and you do not deserve to be abused;
  • Because it’s better and kinder to reach out to others and get support, or to find inner resources to rely on, rather than to add to your own hurt and torment;
  • Because one day you will see the beauty in yourself and know that you should be treated with care;
  • Because you are lovable and loved, and deserve to be treated with love; and
  • Because things will get better, and you will find more of what you need.

First Kiss by Elaina Lee

Needing something short n sweet, and a romantic read I saw this book posted over at one of My favourite authors sites so I decided to delve in and buy it and read it !! Well I must say for all those after a short romance filled with heat and passion !! and a great storyline to boot should read this one.. I love the cover  and whats inside doesnt dissapoint.. Here my thoughts ...

First Kiss by Elaina Lee


Michelle Seabourne works as an Audio Engineer for her current music label company and has been assigned Alexander Trent a famous musician to mix his music. Michelle and Alexander have a past, fifteen years prior Michelle remembers the heated First Kiss in the closest. A kiss she never ever forgot and a kiss that lingered in her memories all these years. Luckily for Michelle, Alexander doesn’t know who she is, her school crush will remain a secret. For now!

Alexander’s sapphire blue eyes, six foot two frame, handsome and good looking features now taunt her thoughts on a daily basis, the New Year’s kiss leads to a one night stand. A night filled with passion, love and lust that neither of them has ever experienced before. Alex puts the wall up around his heart, to guard against everyone and leaves Michelle in bewilderment as to why she ever thought there may have been a future with someone like him - As she considers herself not worthy enough. Alex alone proves her theory, leaving her a gift box, as a thank you and farewell for the night they spent together. Feeling hurt and Shocked Michelle decides to ditch Alex and show him a thing or two and moves to another contract. She definitely has spunk!!

Alex can’t help but think that he and Michelle have met before, but she has assured him they have not, she doesn’t think he would remember her anyway. However he is still unconvinced - Something about her reminds him of the past. Alex does not believe in complications his life is to busy, and full, he guards himself against all love and happiness to fulfill the dream he thought he wanted. Alone and without love he decides he has missed out on too much in life, he wants more than money and fame can buy him – he wants a real and a normal life, his First kiss to be his last kiss - but will it cost him his First Kiss and love?

***
First Kiss is a romantic, tantalizing, and passion filled story, entangled with romance that will not on give you butterflies within, but will have the pages heat up from the electricy flowing between the characters. The hot love will singe your eyelashes, and smexy scorchin love scenes that make your eyes twinkle and flip frantically through the pages. * Im a romantic at heart, I love a good love story, filled with heat and passion.

It had a predicable ending, happily ever after, but hey I’m not disappointed, all the events that take place before, will still have you piqued from page one till the very end.

Michelle and Alexandra have a smoking – hot lustful connection, more than just hot sex, and affection they both share equally, but desires that run wild when they are together. An attraction evident on all levels, physically and emotionally. What can I say!!! Likeable characters and more than just sex, romance but also a great plot.

Alexandra was a conflicted man, having had fame since an early age of 19, he has experienced all that most would wish for, but rich and famous is not all is cracked up to be. He feels he has missed out on all the stuff normal people do. Alex was an assertive character, slightly withdrawn with his life, but set on leading the life he most desires, a life where he is not loved for his money and fame but for himself. Elaina gave us one hotty here, lusty and sexy, and well great all departments. ** Lusty wink ** lol. I love a man who takes charge !!!

Michelle has a lot of insecurities, many of her own. Not thinking that she is memorable enough for anyone to want. She is a strong willed character with spunk, and strong enough to struggle through her career to be the best woman she can in a males society. She is a woman who knows what she wants...

First kiss at only 115 pages, is an intriguing read, that will have you not only captivated from page one, but swept along with the love story, which is fluently paced - each chapter flowing smoothly from one to the next . A story I recommended to all, short but sweet and defiantly a treat!!!

One of my favorites **gently he touched his mouth to her, kissing her slowly and easy. ** I was your first kiss Michelle and I want to be your last **

** sags in chair and sighs ** how romantic !!!!!

Sigh – It all about the first kiss!! Whether it is ravenous, passionate,or pleasurable but sometimes always memorable....

Guilty as Charged by Anna James

I was lucky enough to have been asked by Anna James to review her books ;) This one Guilty as Charged is a short read at only approximately 80 pages long, ideal for a cold night where you dont feel like a full length novel  or just after something short and sweet ..  -  Filled with romance and a few thrills and some added suspense Im sure you will enjoy this short read..  Love the cover !! What do you think ??


Nicole Bradford works in a construction business; -one busy day at work she accepts a phone call from Max Paradis, he is mesmerized by the voice on the end of the phone and finds himself in aure. The next day she meets sexy and handsome Max who sweeps her off her feet, with a passionate kiss to find that this lady is not his brother’s finance but her sister. ?? Now your curious as to why ?? He would be kissing his brothers girl ?? lol.. Their connection was immediate – sizzling and sparks flew and here the romance begins. Max is besotted with Nicole; she is beautiful, intelligent and has an artistic flair that not every man can appreciate. She is the absolute opposite of his ex wife.

Nicolas future comes back to haunt her- Carlos is back and in need of more money or he will reveal Nicole’s past and secrets. Will the secrets interfere with Nicole’s new found happiness and love? Is she able to trust Max and tell him before Carlos does? Will her past come back and tear away their love before it truly begins? Will Nicole be finger marked GUILTY as CHARGED by the ones she loves??

Guilty as Charged is a fluent paced, interesting love story filled with mystery and romance and also sadness. Storyline is evident, smooth flowing plot and dialogue and very likeable characters throughout this read.

Max is a sexy, strong and determined character, wealthy and successful and set in his ways. He is a slightly tortured soul, married and unhappy to a lady who only loved his money, he found that money doesn’t buy everything – not true happiness and love. Now divorced and single, Max wants what money can’t buy , Love and a woman who can love not only for what his pockets can offer her. I liked his character- gentleman in his own ways, loving and sexy ** wink **

Nicole was definite set in her own ways. Independant, determined to be the parent to her two younger sisters, look after them and give them everything they need in a happy life , send them to college even if it meant working two jobs. She is a caring and considerate person, stands up for herself and also took it upon her to rely upon no one... ** Loved the fact that she did her own oil change ** I like a character who is not whiny and is dependant !! Her good intentions in the story lead her  to lie to protect the ones she loves, is very true to life. We all do what we have to do!!  Even if it may not be the right thing to do.

I enjoyed all the secondary characters, all playing their key roles in this story. I’m sure we shall more of them in the following stories of the sisters.

At only 80 pages long, this is an ideal short read for anyone not after an in-depth story or length. I felt nothing was missed out and the whole 80 pages, the storyline fit and ran fluently. It flowed from beginning to end leaving the reader intrigued to only find you have flipped page after page and still interested.

The love between the main characters was evident, Anna’s descriptions written well. ** The Kiss ** I always enjoy in a romance ** It defines the relationship between the characters, hot and passionate! The romance was not over the top is this read, I personally wouldl like to have seem more ** I love a good mushy romance ** but in only 80 pages once can only include so much snogging !! **grins **


Ideal for all who love a short romance filled with all the toppings. A bit like a cupcake, first test the waters to see how it tastes, then once it has tickled your taste buds, full bore ahead till the end. This is my first book I’ve read of Anna’s and look forward to more of her works in the future!!

Snows Heat by Nicole Hicks

Well I was lucky enough to have been given a copy Of   *Snows Heat* by Nicole for review - at only 60 pages long I can guarnatee it will have you intrigued from page one right till the very end !! Snows heat is not due out Till June 27th but  then can be found at B &N, Smashwords, and Amazon.. Im a cover love kinda girl an this one definetly caught my eye !! I know they say Dont judge a book buy its cover but when the goodies inside are as good as the outside !! its BINGO !!! And well they also say just judge but its size ** giggles ** its how it works !! and this one defiently worked for me , even if it was short and sweet !! It held its own..



Sabrina's husband decided after ten years of marriage he was moving on to greener pastures. Bree decided to take a short break - try and mend her broken heart and shatterd dreams - she grabs a bic, builds a bonfire and destroys all memories of her past and assures herself its time to move on.

Can she rise from the ashes of her marriage a new woman, or did she lose too much trying to salvage an illusion? Dealing with the heartache of her new reality, she meets a mystery man in the backwoods. One that makes her burn with desire.

Once just a soldier, now Travis is something…more. His last tour changed him in more ways than one. Can he come to terms with what he is, while dealing with the mixture of lust and possessiveness Bree brings out in him? Or is her past too much for him to handle?

REVIEW

Sabrina has taken a short break to access her life after her cheating husband left her and their children behind.Not only degrading her and making her feel inadequate he has broken her heart , and now she is feeling very alone. She thinks she is no longer good enough to share a bed with any man. Afterall her husband left her to play the field, was she not good enough for him ??

Bree decides this is it and destroys all Earls memories in a huge bonfire. She wants to go home to her kids a better person and continue on with her life. Forget her past move on with her present !!

How do you find the strength to walk away from a life you treasured, even if it was a lie ?? This she must overcome to move on with life.

Here she meets Travis - young and cocky, ** hawt ** and gorgus, young but not as young as she thinks. Travis is concerned Sabrina is hanging around his territory and pays her an unexpected visit. Sparks fly, and electricty flows. Their is a connection between them they both cant deny. Travis being the cat he is, feels protective Of Bree and lingers around watching her burn her past away. Feeling sorry for her, he quite  bravely joins her to lend a friendly shoulder to cry on. The bonfire has not only created a heat of its own but has caused a smouldering depth welling within Travis's loins. ** lol **

Sabrina feeling very much inadequate, cant believe that Travis's inclinations are real. This is where the story heats up. Sabrina is shown lust, love and acceptance by a stranger. Bree has tamed Travis's feline side makes him horny as hell and yet she brings out the real animal in him and doesnt mind !!!


Nicole has created a short story, filled with all the luscious goodies one loves in a short read - lust, love, passion, smokin sensual sex scenes, but not over the top, mystery and even heart felt moments. I can relate to Bree's character, her feelings, been their done that !! I was right beside her burning that asses stuff as well. Cheering her on !!! Its moments like these when you stand on the side line cheering the character on for a well played decision. (( Grins )) Burn baby burn !! I would love to packed that shits ashes up and send them to him just out of sheer spite !!! ** evil laughs **

Passion between the two main characters is evident !! The lust they share is electricifying and the smoking scenes sensual. Even a hint of Humour thrown in for a bit of amusement throughout the read . I enjoyed the steady flow of this story, at only 60 pages long it keeps you intrigued from beginning to end .. All the chapters flow smoothly, storyline is evident and dialogue flows fluently. The characters that Nicole has created are fun, and likeable . Bree is kick arse in her own way, despite her broken heart, I found her forward, honest and an easy going character filled with wit and humour of her own. Travis, was cocky which I love in a man !! ** swoon ** good looking and loved his bedroom talk !! ** even cats love their cream ** Norty but nice !!

The only bad thing I could say would be I personally would have loved it to be longer !! But hey !! Thats just me ,, I love hot sensual scenes, drama and suspense !!! It had all this .. I just wanted more !! ** lusty wink **

If this is the start to Nicoles writing I look forward to reading more of her work. She has shown us just a taste of what to  forsee in her future works then Im sure she will rise to the occasion, with us minions following suite ..

Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.

Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?

In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.

Captivated ( An Affliction Novel 1 ) by D Apodaca

Wow,, I must say an enjoyable read !! Many thanks to D Apodaca for this read to review .. Please find the cover, blurb and my thoughts..

Mindy Keenan couldn't shake the feeling that somehow...in a matter of moments...the boy she once knew was not the one standing before her.

After Mindy's childhood best friend, Dean Aiken, shuts her and everyone else out of his life, she learns to move on. Years pass and she gets used to the fact that he's no longer a part of her life, but things begin to change...

Mindy's new best friend, Markus Medina, witnesses Dean kill two people behind a club. Mindy has a hard time believing him, especially when he mentions that the bodies disappear. Poof! Into thin air. Markus decides he has to follow Dean around in order to get evidence that he's been killing people, so he doesn't sound like a nut to the police. Despite Marcus crazy theories about the possibility of Dean not being human. And not to mention the fact that he's dangerous. Mindy can't help that she may be falling in love with him.

Even after hiding their feelings for each other from the world. Dean and Mindy being together stirs up dangers that neither of them could ever imagine. When she finds out about what Dean really is and the world he tried to keep her away from...it's already too late.


*******************************************************************************************
Mindy Keenan starts a new school year, realizing that life must go on without Dean Aiken in it. Since the death of his parents Dean is not the same person Mindy use to know, she decides to move on.

A new student has enrolled in her year; he is hot, mysterious, charming and very straight forward. Something about him draws Mindy in, she just can’t put her finger on it, something slightly off, but also she feels captivated by him, the way he looks at her, all she knows is that now she sees more of Dean and he obviously doesn’t like Shane. A mystery in itself.

Markus, Mindy’s best friend witnesses Dean Kill two people one night outside the nightclub they were clubbing at. Markus is drawn into mysterious events, the disappearance of the bodies in front of him, and the possibility of Dean being a murderer. He searches to unfold mysteries he never thought possible and decides to take things into his own hands, and play Mr. Detective. Even though everything glows stop and red neon lights, Markus is determined to find out the truth.

Markus is determined to find out, what going on - he sneaks around in the shadows following Dean, and reveals more than he ever bargained for. Now his aim is to keep his secrets and keep Mindy safe. In the meantime, Dean and Mindy have rekindled a bond, Mindy sneaking out secretively to meet Dean and the love begins to blossom all over again. But is Dean able to keep Mindy safe from the creatures of the night – The boogey man. Dean insists that Mindy leave at nightfall every night, and Mindy starts to make her own assumptions, causing a rift between them and Dean decides it’s too dangerous for them to be together and once again pushes her away. Mindy determined and heartbroken wants to show Dean she loves him, and she is unable to just let him go. But will their friendship and love cost them more than they ever bargained for?

My Thoughts....

Wow!! I want me some piece of that action!!!

For starters – I think I am in love with a fictional character!! I know Bad! loll.. *blushes *

Dean – swoon ** heart palpitations * is buff, gorgeous, wash abs, muscles and geesh! I think I am in love!! I must say that the writer has created a god for us to worship over in this novel. I found myself working and dreaming of him – Holding that big sword – those big muscles flexing!! ** grabs wet cloth!! So you get it!! Dean was hot, irresistible not only to me but Mindy! Lol. His character came across hard, and careless, bold and yet kickarse, but in time you see the soft side to him. This man is a man of many colours if you may call it that. But certainly a creature for us to all wander about.

Mindy was your average girl, pretty, confident in her own ways, a tad withdrawn, but also her own person. Her personality the absolute opposite of Dean, but saying that their magnetic connection was defiantly sending sparks throughout this read. Love lies in the eye of the beholder.

I really enjoyed the Characters that D Apodaca created. Not flawless, but personalities of their own, for us the reader to enjoy and envisage. Descriptions, well outlined, and the reader able to picture whilst reading, to give a great insight into the story. I am a visual reader and love to be able to envisage whilst reading and Apodaca skillfully created this...

For starters , Initially I did find the first few chapters a tad slow paced, wandered when the action was going to start, but don’t be deterred by this, she is just getting us warmed up. So, start the engine let it idle for two chapters then you take off on a trip throughout these pages I’m sure that you won’t forget. After this, it’s steadily paced, throughout, enough to keep you in suspense, intrigued and also fascinated with the storyline. You will be wandering what’s happening- who where and why!! But it will also have you contemplating …. ** Scratching your head to work out who is, what and what’s going to happen. Believe me you will be surprised!

Dialogue flowed smoothly, and chapters fluently flowing from one until the next, and I must say a climax that will not only have you gasping ** but have you in turmoil as to where its headed.** I’m sure you will be grabbing that arm rest, and anticipating and thinking ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh nooooo what comes next ! A cliff hanger that will defiantly leave you clutching at your reader- book and searching for what’s next to come to find out, it’s the end!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed all the secondary characters, had myself in giggles at Markus and his macho man antics towards the end, but his loyalty was rewarding and refreshing. I’m sure he is a character you will also enjoy. Shane will have you baffled, his spunk but also secrets will leave you unsure, and as to what to think of him, till the very end and I’m sure you’ll wish you had that broomstick or bottle of Mt Franklin pure water!!! All villains were portrayed well, and we all hate them, and this was well achieved.

Idea behind the story line was unique, different, and the ending was definitely unpredictable. Not something you would suspect or ever wish for... I found myself at work, telling a fellow reader friend!! Oh no!!! She just did this to them!!! geesh !!!! I read my last pages in my 15 minute break at work, then dwelled and now eagerly anticipating the next book... This book will leave you thinking about it way past the last pages. ** Ill dream of Deannneee ** lol.. Sorry had to say that part lol.

An intriguing world created by D Apodaca, I’m sure that will leave you breathless, eager and frantically flipping right till the very end. Fantastic character development, characters you will fall in love with, hate and also wish more for... and an ending –a dead halt and think NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!


4 1/2 stars A MUST READ

Elfin Blood

Elfin Blood

by  Gracen Miller ** direct link to facebook page **
Scorned by her own kind for her half-breed elf status, Julija lives a lonely existence among her Ivory Elf kin. She is the only one the elves can trust when a magical book in elf lore is stolen. Relegated to steal the Book from the vampire thief, Landau Jamieson, she's surprised to discover he has the ability to walk in daylight. Refusing to be deterred by developing setbacks, she’s committed to executing the heist for an Ivory King who grows more desperate to possess the Book. Nothing about the vampire is as it appears and Julija begins to doubt her mission. Worse, she begins to worry she won't have the strength to guard her heart from her sworn enemy.

Landau is fascinated by the elf stalking him and baffled by the potent hunger she elicits after ten thousand years of celibacy. Soon he discovers the lovely sprite is a pawn in a dangerous game--orchestrated by none other than a reviled enemy from his past. While blind-sided by her beauty and her magical powers, the least of which is the spell she casts on his heart, the sinister plot unfolds. What started out as folly to catch a thief, blossoms into a love that casts aside bloodlines and forges all boundaries


My Review ;)
Her half blood elf status, Julija lives a lonely existance amoung her Ivory Elfkin. She is entrusted with a job by the Ivory king to steal back the Elf lore book, from the Vampire Thief - Landau Jamieson. Landau can walk in daylight and this puts a deter on Julija's plan, she is  planning a heist for the Ivory king, who desperately wants this book and its possession.
Landau is fascinated by the elf stalking him, mesmirized by the effect she has on him, after 10 000 years of celibicy he finds that not only does his mind stray but his hunger awakens - Sexually. He is aroused by her and wants her all to himself, to bed and kill if need be, afterall she is the enemey.
He discovers that Julija is conspiring against him with his enemy from the past, he is mesmirezed by her beauty and her powers and the lust she brings about in him is something they both cant deny. Something grows between them and against all bloodlines and rules, cast aside , boundaries crossed and life and love is at stake.
Julija finds out that diamonds are not only a girls best friend, but Landau's years of celibacy are not the only surprise in store. 
Will Julija succeed in stealing the elf lore book for her master or will the growing attraction between Landau defy all odds? Truths become about and lie surface..
*******************************************************************
Gracen has created a unique world of Vampires, Elves and Magic - a world in which Im sure readers will find not only fascinating but intriguing.
Landau is your alpha - spunk - hotty , interesting and smexy all in one. His demineer is glowling with spunk - hotness - and Im sure all the readers will fall in love with his character from the very beginning.  ** I know I did ** Their's nothing quiet like a vampire that knows what he wants !!!! ** He possess the quality in an alpha we all love, strong, willing yet also demanding, and hot as hell in the bedroom scenes. The loving and chemistry between the two main charaters will not only singe your eyelashes, but have you frantically flipping through the scorching scenes that Gracen has written.
The extra tidbits  in between the pages  ** will have you raising your eyeslashes  and wandering where you can get yourself one of those diamonds. I found this very interesting !!!!   Lusty wink ...
** Afterall - they say diamonds are a girls best friend ** and in Julija's and Landau's case this adds extra heat to their sensual love scenes and her powers that she possess. After all Elfs love a few gems, and when Julija is surrounded by them she is taken to another world !!!
Julija's character is strong willed, kick arse and definelty capable of many things, her sexuality is not a  secert being the elf that she is ,, she is in overdrive and needs that extra lovin, but hey who cant complain when a hotty like Landau is their to help :O) Willing and certainly able ! Im sure that the reader will not be disspointed in the chemistty created between these new characters..
All secondary characters very limited throughout but also needed to give the story the twist..
The overall storyline was present, chapters fluently flowed from one to the next, keeping the reader intrigued with all ascpects becoming in the storyline. Very differnt from any other vampire book out their, and Im sure that this alone will keep you intrigued.. I read this book in one sitting, a fast paced, short read but capable of leaving you wanting more ... and keeping you certainly in thoughts well after .. ** wink wink **
An erotic read , with an interesting and unique storyline, that will leave you not only gasping at the smexy, smoldering sex scenes , but also captivate your interest. Its always great to read a story that is not like the others being shelved, and  honestly elfs are not really my thing, but this book was an eye opener for me. I enjoyed it !! Yes the story is filled with hot sex, to die for Alpha hero and kick arse female character but it also has a storyline to boot, romance was not over the top and the rest flowed smoothly creating a story Im sure will keep you entranced till the end.
Gracen has created a tantalizing world, filled with fantasy, fantasies, Vampires, Elves and magic that will leave you reflecting upon this read - in a completely differnt light. Maybe you will find  an urge to go and buy the sparkliest diamond you can find . ** grins **
4 BIG SPARKLY DIAMONDS !!!!!

Exile *Mercy book 2 * by Rebecca Lim

I had the pleasure of reviewing Exile ;) and I must say I really enjoyed it ! Rebecca has thrown in twists and suspense to leave you wanting more .. Here is my book review as to why I enjoyed it .. My review does contain spoilers.

 Rebecca has introduced us to a world of angels in a completley different light ! In exile, Rebecca has continued with Mercy's world - a world entirely different of its own.. An angel who no longer wants to be in exile !! She just wants to be herself, but whom is she ??


Exile continues on with Mercy being exiled from Heaven, still unsure of the crime she has committed and has been banned for.

Mercy wakes to find herself in the body of Lela Neil - an eighteen year old girl who works at the Green Lantern, serving coffee to strippers, suits and all kinds of patrons. Lela spends her nights beside her dying mother’s bedside, sleeping in the arm chair and caring for her mother who is terminally ill. The days are long, and Lela waits for that dreaded day to come.

Mercy seems to take on Lela's body a lot easier this time, fitting into this new body with more finesse and ease. Quickly falling into her new temporary life.

Luc finds Mercy and still visits her, in her dreams, promising that he will find her and encourages Lela to find her Human friend Ryan. Torn between her love for Luc and her new affection for Ryan, Mercy hunts for Ryan.

Luc gives Mercy snippets to help her along the way to find Ryan in Paradise. Their must a reason behind his actions, so she searches.

Along the way Mercy is discovering parts of her true self and feelings. What Mercy doesn’t know is that her actions may cause serious repercussions, and this affecting the people around her.

The eight are determined to keep Mercy and Luc apart; every time he gets close to her, they banish her once again to another life. The reason behind is still unknown ?

Mercy takes Lela on a whirlwind of events... some that may never be reversed.

My Review.

Well I must say that I enjoyed Mercy but Exile was taken a notch higher, giving it a 4 1/5 stars, it had all aspects of a great novel. It was filled with drama, murder, mystery, and suspense and even a little hint of romance. Enough to keep you intrigued, and interested and read till the very end. I read this in one sitting, and was impressed -   eagerly awaiting book 3. A cliffhanger that will have you pondering in which direction Rebecca is taking us. An ending where you are definetly wanting more. UNPREDICTABLE AND WOW !

A lot came about in this story. I found that Lela reminded me a lot of Carmen in the last body that Mercy inhabited, however saying that Lela's story so much sadder. Both girls torn and damaged, but Lela's story ripping and heartfelt.  It certainly tugs at your heart strings, leaves you gapping at the jaw and certainly teary eyed. Rebecca surprises us with the twists and turns - leaving the reader with no idea and an ending certainly unpredictable.

The plot was well defined; this was very well outlined throughout this read, chapters running smoothly from one to the next, dialogue running fluently throughout.  The climax had me shocked and taken aback ! Not at all what I expected, which is great from the readers point of view, I didnt see this coming at all but ,  it gives us room to be intrigued, mesmerized and I also found myself very curious and leaving myself wandering - WHAT'S NEXT ?

I am growing to love Mercy's character more and more with each story; Rebecca is introducing Mercy and certain aspects into the storyline giving us insight to history and shards of the real Mercy not the body that she has inhabited. Twists and turns become about in Exile, which of course is great... New area for us to visit in upcoming books. Ryan is once again introduced, only filling a small section of this story, I would like to have seen more of him, but saying this I think we will see alot more in book 3 as the love triangle becomes about.

As readers we are handed a villian, their true colours do not show till the very end. A character Im sure you will dislike and that will leave you gob smacked with the outcome.

Secondary characters will have you keen and certainly interested, all viable and necessary and of course fitting into the plot like a key into a lock. Unlocking elements throughout, giving us that unexpected questions and you raising your eyes as to where the story is heading .


The romance between the characters heat up in Exile ;) Cute if you may call it, but also leaving you to wander where the love will get a chance to begin. I have my own thoughts and I can see room for growth in both Mercy’s character as well as the romance, to flourish in the next book. The eight are introduced- Now your curious !!! I know I certainly was !!!! Im sure we shall see more in this direction - I look forward to this.  I enjoyed the background information and defiently look forward to finding out more. Overall I completely enjoyed this second Novel Of Rebecca Lims and eagerly awaiting book 3.

Shockwave by Amy Romine

Amy Romine has a new series out !!! The Tarot series.  Shockwave being book one. !!!! Here is my book review and why I enjoyed this suspsenseful romance.!!





Kate is an FBI agent, hiding from a kidnappiing she cant remember. Her friend Mike offers her respite at his radio station hoping that life moves on and that she will remember that horrible night.
Here Kate meets Jack, the morning radio host, he is cocky and arrogant and Katie and Jack find themselves slightly deturbed by each other, Kate with Jacks arrogance and finds him approachable, Jack with Kate's controlling nature.
A business trip finds Jack and Kate finding their desires run along the same path, but are they already putting out the flames out desire before the passion truly ignites. Emotions rise, past is revisted and secerts are reveiled. Two both very differnt people from two different paths of life, with this bring them together or tear them apart..

My Review !!!
Once again Amy Romine has delivered the goodies. – A suspenseful romance filled with twists and turns, I’m sure not even a roller coaster ride would take... You will be shocked, intrigued and drawn into this suspense, flipping to find out what’s next...!!

In Shockwave we meet Jack and Kate. Jack is a cocky, handsome, self absorbed and arrogant radio host. Living life enjoying his unattached status and living foot loose and fancy free. I rather enjoyed Jacks ** Cockiness ** if you call it that, he had spunk, yet we also found his weaknesses. Despite his hard, non caring exterior Jack found himself wanting something in life he wasn’t searching for. He wasn’t impressed with Kate’s assertiveness and controlling nature but in time, he works out Kate’s true side.
So both Characters like polar opposites, but saying that Opposites do attract...
Kate, an FBI agent, good at her job, and dedicated. I enjoyed her assertiveness – 20th century kick arse chick style aurora.. She was her own person! Believed in her ways, and stuck to them. Protecting the ones she cared about even if it meant hurting herself in the process.
The attraction between Jack and Kate was Smokin !! Sensual and full of passion.. Their loving was tasteful, sexy yet also enough to have you eagerly flipping briskly through the pages. ** Lusty wink ** Nothing quite like a bit of romance and love to add to a suspenseful story.

Shockwave is an intriguing, fast paced suspense, with a climax that makes you want to rip the arms of the chair you sitting on!! It will have you nodding and wandering and slightly heartbroken …. But I knew Amy had her reasons, which will come about in book two I’m sure.
The dialogue flowed smoothly, chapters fluently running from one to the next, plot well outlined and character development wonderfully created.
I enjoyed all the secondary characters, all playing their parts well, in the twist and turns, throughout the book. We all have characters we fall in love with, others we don’t like to see leave due to unexpected circumstances, but all their parts vital in creating that atmosphere in Shockwave... Ending is definitely not predictable...
It will leave you shocked!!
Another great start to a fabulous series and I eagerly await book 2.
