My five-star review for TheBeast Within (Conversion #5) by S.C. Stephens is up and kicking! A little warning, I can’t guarantee a complete spoiler free review for this series. Click the image below to read my review for the whole series and dive in the world of vampires!
Nika Adams has had a challenging year. She gave her heart to Hunter Evans, only to have him break it. But Nika refuses to give up hope. Not when there’s a chance she can save her true-love—even if she must save him from himself.
Julian Adams finally knows what he wants, and is truly happy. But when he gets mixed up in Nika’s suicide mission to save her wayward boyfriend, he begins to wonder if his dream girl can handle the dangerous life that comes with being an Adams.
I have waited four long years for this book and literally cried when I was given the opportunity to received an ARC copy. I’m not being bias when I say that this is one of my best reads this 2017. It has been a long time since I read the previous and fourth book in the series, The Next Generation, but I did not have a hard time getting into the character’s world again. This vampire world that S.C. Stephens created is something new and unforgettable. Anyhow, my review will be up in a few minutes or so. Be sure to grab you copy!
CRUX UNTAMED (HADES HANGMEN #6) is an emotionally-charged, heartbreaking MFM (menage a trois) dark romance novel. CRUX UNTAMED CANNOT be read as a standalone novel. All of the previous books in the series MUST be read first.
Release date and synopsis to be revealed at a later date.
My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.
We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.
I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.
We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.
I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.
I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.
Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?
Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…
That cover is just oh-so-gorgeous!
Oh my gosh, I think I’m suffering from third degree burns here. Just looking at those smoldering eyes, phew! I could totally see Hunter Delucia in Fabian Castro. I absolutely adore Vi Keeland’s book covers. It’s like your daily dose of eye candy. 😉
Anyway, this new contemporary romance standalone by Vi Keeland will be released on January 15, 2018. As the synopsis suggest, Sex, Not Love is a no-strings-attached kind of story. For potential new readers of Vi, I’m sure you’ve heard of this scenario before but you’ll be in for a ride. She tells the best kinds of laughter and heartaches in every story. The first book of hers that I read was Bossman and I never looked back. She’s been one of my go-to author since then and been a member of Vi’s Violets.
Don’t miss Vi’s new standalone for 2018, Sex, Not Love. I swear you wouldn’t regret it! Purchase links are available below:
In this next installment from beloved author, Melissa de la Cruz, the Vampires of Manhattan series continues on at a breathless pace.
Oliver Hazard-Perry, once leader of the Coven, is now a broken man and enlists the help of his friends Jack Force and Schuyler Van Alen to redeem himself and search for his lost love, Finn Chase, who has disappeared into the sophisticated streets of Stockholm. Meanwhile, back in the city, venators Ara Scott and Edon Marrok’s investigation into a surge of Nephlim (those dangerous half-human, half demons) activity has come to a dead end. As quickly as they arrived, the Nephilim have all mysteriously disappeared from New York. Where did they go? And does the answer lie in the hidden caverns and remote glaciers of the Scandinavian peninsula?
As the sun stretches summer days into white nights, the loyal crew encounters its most devastating trial yet, one that brings everything they believe into question and everything they love into danger.
Could this day get any better?!
I thought I was dreaming when I saw Melissa de la Cruz’ FB post. I have been waiting for this book for more or less three years now. Three goddamned long years. Gosh, I can’t wait to get started on this!
White Nights is the second installment of The New Blue Bloods Coven series. The first book is titled Vampires of Manhattanwhich happened a decade after the original series ended, the Blue Bloods series. I recommend reading the previous series before starting this spin-off because there were some references that would really help you understand and appreciate the story better. The ending will absolutely create a bigger impact on the reader. 😉
Our queen, Kristen Ashley, just announced on her FB page that Shirleen will finally meet her own Hot Bunch! It’s a short story that’s currently working its way in our hands. I can’t believe it’s happening. Omg, I can’t stop shaking. This may be the best news ever today. I think this will yank me out of my reading slump.
Anyway, Kristen’s got a contest running on her FB page. She need a name for Shirleen’s hottie. The winner will have the honor to be mentioned in the book, a book of his/her choice from the Rock Chick series and his/her choice of a Fortnum’s sipper cup or a Nightingale Investigation travel mug or a Rock Chick Nation martini glass. So what are you waiting for? Give the man a name!
“He’s tall. He’s built. He’s likely in his mid- to late-50s. He’s handsome. And until I get a name, I’m not sure where it goes from there.
Jacob’s Ladder lead songwriter, Gabe Renard, is having a rough start in writing for their next album. In his quest to find some quite and solitude, his journey to North Georgia Mountains took a wrong turn to be stuck in the mud. The help he got is from the form of Rae Hart, the beautiful and sassy woman with a penchant for bad luck. Would Rae be the new muse for Gabe? Would Gabe be able to turn Rae’s life around? Or would their distrustful nature be their doom before it even began?
I absolutely love Katie Ashley! It has been years since we have read anything from the Runaway Train gang but I know that Jacob’s Ladder is in the works. I have kept my eyes opened for this one and it was beautiful! It didn’t feel like it has been years since the last book. Her characters were so memorable that I didn’t need to reread the previous series to re-acquaint myself with the Jacob’s Laddergang.
Gabe was everything I thought he would be. He’s the yin of the twin brothers. He was your classic broody, manwhore guy. He had his own frustrating moments but you couldn’t help but fall in love with him. I truly adore Rae. She’s one of the few heroines the I actually applaud to. Her life circumstances didn’t break her, it made a stronger woman out of her. I love how Katie Ashley melded these two strong personalities together. From an outsider’s POV, it would seem impossible for them to be together because their personalities clash too much. However, their intensity and drive pulled everything off.
Gabe being the classic rockstar cost this book a star. It made me feel like reading Music of the Heart again. Now, there’ s nothing wrong with that book. I LOVED that book. However, I couldn’t find Gabe’s true person in the beginning. It pains me to admit this, but it almost made me quit the book. I didn’t because I know that this book has a lot to offer. I truly believe that Katie Ashley would never fail to deliver. Well, I don’t think a four-star rating is anything to sneeze at 😉
