The Beast Within (Conversion #5)

by S.C. Stephens

TBW BN Kobo

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!

SURPRISE RELEASE: White Nights by Melissa de la Cruz

White Nights (The New Blue Bloods Coven #2)

by Melissa de la Cruz

whitenightscoverfinalflat

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.


HOLY CRAP!

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 Manhattan which 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. 😉

OH. MY. WORD.

ROCK CHICKS ARE YOU SITTING DOWN?

YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN.

READY?

SHIRLEEN’S GONNA HAVE HER OWN BOOK!!!

*commence inaudible screeching*

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.

Except he’s pretty sure about what he wants.”

Jacob’s Ladder by Katie Ashley

Jacob’s Ladder: Gabe

JL1

*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.*

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 Ladder gang.

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 😉

NOW LIVE! Jacob’s Ladder: Gabe by Katie Ashley

Jacob’s Ladder: Gabe (Jacob’s Ladder #1)

by Katie Ashley

JL1

As the lead songwriter for Jacob’s Ladder, the last thing Gabe Renard needs is a debilitating case of writer’s block. After years of meaningless one night stands, he’s finding it hard to pen the love-filled ballads the label is requesting. In an effort to clear his mind, Gabe takes his jeep off-roading in the North Georgia Mountains. When a wrong-turn leads to him getting stuck more than just creatively, he’s forced to call for help. To his surprise, the “Ray” who has been sent by Hart Wreckers to his aid is actually “Rae”—a sexy-as-hell spitfire in a pair of tight-as-hell jeans. The combination of Rae’s sassy mouth and rocking body might be the inspiration Gabe needs. But for the first time since becoming a rock star, his advances have been shot down.

Reagan Hart has never been a fan of musicians. In fact, just the mention of one might cause her to throw a tire tool. Her disgust for them started when she was just eight and her mother ran off with a traveling country singer, and it only worsened when at seventeen, her rocker boyfriend knocked her up before blowing out of town. As a single mother taking care of her family’s collision business, Rae doesn’t have time for hook ups, much less a relationship. And if she did make time, a musician would be last on her list, even one as good-looking as Gabe Renard.

Can Gabe find the words to prove not only to Rae, but himself, that she’s the only one for him?


Jacob’s Ladder: Gabe is the first book in the spin-off series of Runaway Train. This new series will cover the stories of Abby (Renard) Slater’s brothers. We will also have fun seeing a bit of the original characters. My ARC review will be up in a few, so stay tuned!
