Predator and Prey By James D. Horton Review

P&P

 

 

The Blurb…

Lily works the night shift at a radio station, taking calls from forlorn and damaged souls who can’t sleep. She knows their pain and they find solace in her comforting words. The city is ruthless; nameless creatures roam the streets and prey on the lost and innocent.

As she leaves work one night at the crest of dawn, Lily comes face-to-face with depravity. She is a survivor at heart, but she is unfairly outnumbered and surrenders to her fate. From the shadows an ally emerges, the mysterious and alluring, Wolf. After coming to Lily’s aid, he takes her to shelter.

The immediate danger has passed, but the incident is far from over. Wolf tells Lily she is not prey, and sets off into the night with her by his side to set a wrong right. What she sees when entering the dark heart of the city will change her existence forever. Has Wolf taken on a force too big? Will Lily survive the night?

My Thoughts…

I was given this book in exchange for a honest opinion. This is a really quick read, but I like the world that Mr. Horton has set up. I love the character he has set up in Lily and I’m curious about Wolf and what his story is.

While, Lily has always been the one who does what others want just so she can get by in life,Wolf shows her that she doesn’t have to be prey. She’s pulled to him like moth to flame and although she should be terrified, she simply isn’t. She draws on his strength until she can find her own. Wolf is your typical alpha male. Very confident and demanding, what he is I’m not sure of but i have my suspicions and I can’t wait to see if I’m right.

The romance is not strong in this book, but there in no doubt a connection between Lilly and Wolf and I can’t wait to read more about how there connection grows through out the book and therefore I’ll be looking forward to reading book 2 ‘Beast’

Opposition By Jennifer Armentrout (lux5) Review

 

13644055The Blurb…

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could dcestroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

My Review…

Okay, so I know I’ve been saying I’m going to review this for a long time and haven’t done it so I thought I’d best do that now 🙂 well, Where to start this book was amazing ! 

This was my reaction when i woke up to it on my kindle….

 

and then when i found out a certain few characters were in the book…
And that moment when I read something near the end…Miss Armentrout i was not impressed
And then at the end….Overall…

what a brilliant author you are. You had me laughing, crying and shouting at the book in my hands. Just like all the other books in the lux series this one does not let you down with action, suspense and heart wrenching moments. I’m sad to see yet another fantastic series come to a end by Jennifer but it was a brilliant journey to be on. and I’m likely to do a ‘re-read of the whole series 😀

J.Kwongs debut novel Scarlet Winters (The Berona Chronicles)

22993603

The Blurb-

Welcome to the city of Berona – a city governed by four Superheroes with great superpowers. Thanks to the Superheroes, Berona is mostly crime-free, and is touted as one of the best cities in the world. However, there are some people who aren’t so sure about Berona’s greatness…

Meet Terry Landers – a genius inventor who can create anything out of nothing. But Terry knows that she’s unpleasant and rude. which is why she’s surprised when she’s asked to become a Superhero’s sidekick. Terry is one of the few people who questions the wisdom of having the Superheroes govern Berona, and as she dives into her new role as a Superhero sidekick, she begins to realize just how right she might be.

Throw in a child kidnapping and evidence that links the crime to the Superheroes, it’s now up to Terry to save her beloved city. But will she be able to fulfill her duties as a sidekick? Or will danger find her first?

My thoughts…

As I’ve said in a earlier post this is a debut novel that has been self published. Now this book is not exactly the type of book that i would read but i decided to give it a chance as everyone says don’t judge a book by its cover ;). Its recommended for young adults, aged 16+, and i have to admit this does fit the age its saying or even maybe lower. This book all depends on what type of thing you like.. such as if you like superheroes that are bit childish and its all a bit of fun then this would be your book. However the vocabulary in this book can be rather childish and this is why i’m suggesting that the age goes a bit lower.The plot begins as bit predictable but catches me by surprise at the end which i thought was clever.

Not only this but i enjoyed scarlet’s attitude and damn right rudeness,she made me smile and laugh quite a bit through out the book and i was extremely happy she made the right choice in the end. The character Carson featured quite bit in this book but i wont go into what he is you’ll have to read the book to find out !!and I’m interested as to how Scarlet and Carson’s relationship grows through out the series.

Overall, i did enjoy this book it was a bit of fun with a good story line I glad i was offered the chance to review this and I hope that J.kwong continues with the series letting the books grow through out experience and time. 🙂

Trust in me J.Lynn Review

The Blurb…

It’s Wait for You as you’ve never seen it. Trust in Me lets you in on Cam’s side of the #1 New York Times Bestselling story.

Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life – literally – he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam’s not ready to give up. He can’t get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head.

Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery’s life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?
My Thoughts…

Okay so I’m just going to say wow! I think I’m even more in love with cam then I was when I first read wait for you, if that’s possible. By the way its best to read Wait For You first before you read this one as it goes into more detail.
anyway what else it there to say I LOVED THIS!!

It was great to see more of Jase and Ollie and I really can’t wait for Jase and Teresa’s story. I loved the little chapter that came with this book at the end and how jen even made hints of there being something between them throughout the book.
And in the middle of all this… I really want another story (It can even be a novella) about Cam and Avery again because I can’t get sick of them.
If you haven’t read this (or the previous one) PLEASE, don’t lose more time, go buy it.
Jennifer is a hell of a writing genius and not reading her books should be considered a reading crime.
And that is all 😀

Wicked Jennifer Armentrout

 

 

My exact reaction when i found out JLA was starting a new series…

 

 

Okayyy, so i think i should tell you guys what its about…Jennifer has posted on her website (http://www.jenniferarmentrout.com/things-are-about-to-get-wicked-in-new-orleans/) that its going to be self published and should be released by December 8th 2014 and it will be on digital and print format. It then goes on to say that WICKED is a New adult paranormal romance (so my kind of book :D) and because i love giving people teasers here’s a excerpt of WICKED…

Clasping my cheeks with his large, calloused hand, he swooped in and tilted his head. He kissed me, right there on the side of the street, in front of Brighton and Merle’s house. And it was no chaste or quick kiss. I didn’t even think Ren knew how to do chaste kisses.

His warm mouth moved over mine, insistent and seductive. With my hands clutching the helmet between us, all I could do was let myself be swept away by the feel of his mouth on mine.

And it did feel damn good.

The bike still hummed under us, and as his tongue glided over mine, I gasped into his mouth. I felt his lips curve into a smile against mine, and I wanted to pitch the helmet into the street and climb all over him.

Ren’s mouth brushed mine as he murmured, “Mmm.”

“What… what was that for?” I asked, blinking.

He laughed as he turned, turning the engine off. “It was a ‘just because kiss.’ Get used to it. You’re going to get a lot of them.”

I stared at his back. “What if I don’t want them?”

He looked over his shoulder, arching a brow. “You want them.”

I sighed. I did want them.

Falling into us review by Jasinda Wilder

FALLING-INTO-US-front-685x1024

The blurb

THE STORY YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW…

 
When Kyle Calloway died, he took a part of Nell with him. She wasn’t the only one left to pick up the pieces, however; Kyle’s death left a gaping hole in the hearts and lives of his parents and his older brother Colton, and ultimately broke the will of the girl he loved.

 

THE STORY YOU NEVER IMAGINED… 

Becca de Rosa is Nell’s best friend. When Kyle died, Nell was so devastated that no one could reach her, not even her best friend Becca. As she tries to help Nell through her grief, Becca’s own life is thrust into turmoil, and everything she knows is changed.

 

Jason Dorsey asked Nell out the week after her sixteenth birthday, but that date never happened. Instead, he ended up going out with Nell’s best friend, Becca. He had no way of knowing, then, how that one date would send him on a life-long journey with Becca. He had no way of knowing the tragedies and triumphs he would experience, or that in Becca, he might find the love of a lifetime.

 

THE HEARTACHE YOU’LL NEVER FORGET…

 

my review

 

I’m going to be totally honest here; I was scared to read Falling Into Us! No really, should I just go ahead and start drinking now? Maybe run a hot shower so I can sit there alone, crying, and clutching my knees?? I mean hell, the super glue hasn’t even dried from piecing my heart back together from Falling Into You (A must read by the way if you haven’t). How am I going to survive another one!? HOW!!?? I. Was. Scared. 

 

Falling Into Us was a different type of emotion, a different journey. I was falling, but instead of going splat on the pavement, I was caught! I was caught by emotional healing. There was heartache, heartbreak, and loss, but I was healed. Even my wounds from Falling Into You were healed. Both journeys collided. 

 

At first, I wasn’t even sure I wanted to take a new journey. I didn’t want to be pulled away from Nell, Kyle, and Colton. I was so wrapped up in hoping to catch glimpses of their story that I almost missed something right in front of me, something pretty damn amazing.

 

What I found so achingly good about this book was the perfection in which Jasinda Wilder writes coming of age. The teenage characters felt so real, living out actual experiences. Experiences that were so true to life that I questioned it being fiction. Everything from the dialogue to the awkward situations. I lived the “firsts” right along with them. 

 

I loved reading the conversations between Kyle and Jason. Two teenage boys discussing relationships and cluelessly leading and learning from each other. In those moments, they were awkward. Beautifully and perfectly awkward. They were real. 

 

Jasinda Wilder incredibly brought closure to not one, but two beautiful stories. Two journeys collided. Four hearts healed. Bringing back Colton and Nell wasn’t just genius, it expressed one of the main things that I love about reading Jasinda Wilder. Her books give us entirety. I never feel slighted or incomplete; she gives closure in everything she writes. I accept that last page because I feel it; I feel the ending. Jasinda Wilder writes completeness. And in this moment, I am complete!

Onyx (Lux series book 2) Jennifer L. Armentrout Review

Onyx - Jennifer L. Armentrout

Blurb…

Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

My Thought’s…

Okay again I have already read this series and but I’m re-writing the reviews now. But anyone who had not read Obsidian start reading it now as it does need to be read before this one.As soon as I turned the last page of Obsidian, I picked up the second book in the series, Onyx. Well, after reading the short story about Daemon’s brother Dawson,Shadows ( which I recommend reading before this book). Anyways, it was just that good that I wanted to stay  in the world and never leave, and thankfully Onyx didn’t let me down either.


Onyx picks up right where Obsidian left off and if I thought I fell hard for Daemon in Obsidian, I pretty much keeled over for him in Onyx. Things have changed in big ways and now Daemon is determined to win over Katy. Katy isn’t quite so sure, after the stunts he’s pulled luring her in only to leave her feeling a little bit too vulnerable she’s not quick to trust him. But c’mon, he’s Daemon and he can be ridiculously charming when he wants to be.


Also,I absolutely despised Blake, every single body part of his belongs in jail, or in the woods, with wolves…big…furry…hungry ones. Enough said… Wait there’s one more thing i’d like to say to him 


A bit near towards the end of the book was heartbreaking all i could think was…

Photobucket


and then finally on the last page…


 

Overall this book was Filled with action, suspense, an engaging storyline and of course there’s the sexpot that is Daemon, you just can’t go wrong with these books and it really goes to show you how amazing of a writer Jennifer L. Armentrout is. She’s created a solid and addictive page-turner of a series that I simply never want to end! I recommend this series its brilliant 

check out my review for opal soon 🙂
