The Basilisk’s Creed, Omnibus by Eme Strife review

18164912

The Blurb…

Moving to San Francisco was a decision twenty-three year old Elisheva Tilton thought would change her hard life in Little Rock, Arkansas, for the better. Yet, Eli still finds herself living in shambles and being constantly stressed out just to make ends meet in the Big Bad Bay.

And the stress only piles on when the most unusual of things begin to happen around her—including the mysterious disappearance of the Atlantic Ocean—and even more so when she strangely meets the unlikely individual who would irrevocably change her life forever; a gorgeous, unbelievably sexy, and sophisticated high-ranking soul reaper.

My Thoughts…

We get perspective from both Matt’s and Eli’s perspectives and occasionally there’s overlap between the two.It was a completely different view on the same event. It definitely made you think and allowed you a chance to see why someone was acting how they were. There were a lot of questions that kept popping up. If you’d get an answer you’d just find a new question. The book left me with more questions then answers but i suppose its a start of a series and this will be answered later on.

Overall, A great read, if still a smidge rough, but leaves me waiting for the next installment and it solidly establishes the setting and characters.

Wicked By Jennifer Armentrout cover revealed

New Adult Paranormal
Book 1 in a Wicked Trilogy
Publishes December 8th, 2014

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

I want this book now!!…I’m so excited! and the cover wow! it is amazing I’m in love with it. The countdown start soon only 21 days to go!!

Adrian Lessons L.A Rose Giveway

Adrian Lessons…

If there’s one thing Cleo Reynolds knows, it’s that she’s not into Adrian King.

The son of a model with the looks to prove it, the experienced author of her school newspaper’s sex advice column, the cocky playboy with a hint of darkness. That Adrian King.

Nope. Nuh-uh. No way.

The problem is, he’s very into her.

After accidentally flashing him, and slightly-less-accidentally-but-still-totally-unintentionally making out with him in front of the whole class, she expects to be called crazy. Instead, he asks her out.

Cleo’s determined not to end up as another notch on his bedpost. Except she hasn’t done…you know…it in a while. (Read: ever.) And as a girl who pays her tuition by writing all the sex scenes in her roommate’s bestselling romance series, the lack of inspiration has served up a fat slice of writer’s block.

Until her roommate proposes that Cleo and Adrian act out all the steamy scenes in her book.

It’s just research. No feelings involved.

Nope. Nuh-uh.

No way.

Wantin by Truth Devour review

The blurb..

Fate is relentless in its pursuit of Talia Jacobs. Presented with unimaginable turns of chance, she is drawn into the depths of tragic losses then catapulted to the extraordinary heights of life’s joy. Take the journey with Talia as she undergoes her sexual, social and physical metamorphosis from a vulnerable girl into a mature young seductress. Nothing in life is ever as it seems. Is she blessed or cursed? Will she ever find the man who will love her like no other, fearlessly caressing the deepest part of her being while intertwining his soul to hers in a dance that holds the unspoken promise of forever?

My Thoughts..

This book invites you into the journey of Talia as she learns who she really is, where she comes from and where she must go to find her true happiness. Along the way, she captures the heart of a few men. You can’t help but hope she might end up falling in love with one of them, but she isn’t able to. As the reader, you begin to feel the pain Talia is in. She has to continuously reject the love of others, not because she is cruel but because it isn’t what she is looking for. And, when she finally realizes she might be in love with someone. It is forbidden. Even when there is a glimpse of hope that she might actually have the opportunity to be with the one she “loves”, the fantasy is quickly shot down by many obstacles. Will she ever be happy? Is she cursed?

I can’t really write much, without giving the story away so go and read it and find out more 😀

Beast By James D. Horton review

23120174The Blurb…

This is the continuing story from Predator & Prey Book One – find out what happens next to Lily as she continues her adventures with the Vampire known as Wolf. Together they delve deeper into the vampire society that controls the city where not all is as it seems ever and another surprise is always just around the corner.

My Thoughts…

I really like Lily. Every time I read her,she’s a wonderful contrast of brashness and insecurity without coming across needy and annoying. She asks Wolf several times “Why aren’t I good enough?”, when she can’t understand why he won’t do something.
I also really like Wolf. He isn’t a good person. He isn’t necessarily a bad person, either. He also has a past and a little bit of this was shown in this book while in the other book it showed how mysterious he was and secretive but now i don’t know whats worse i want more of these books…

I love James writing style its smooth and unrushed. The ending to this book was not isn’t the happy ending you might wish for in a romance, but it is so very very fitting although confusing. Overall I definitely would recommend for every reader to hurry up and start reading this novel.

Adrian Lessons By L.A Rose

review:AdrianLessonsBanner

This is an amazing book I’m not gonna lie to you…I’d love  it from  start to finish and the way it ended :O I can’t even the describe how much i love this book.Adrian though he’s sweet, sexy and frigging hell the things he did in this book would make a hooker blush (i know i certainly did) 😀 Cleo is so funny and you just can’t help but love her. She is strong, witty and hilarious.

I can not wait for the second book (their best be a second book Miss Rose) The conversation between Uterus and Brain, with a little incentive from Heart is probably some of the best and funniest dialogue I’ve read and immediately want more!

This is L. A. Rose’s debut book and it was fantastic, I can see this author going far.

This book is worth the read .. i recommend it to anyone who has a sense of humor enjoys a good  romance and of course doesn’t mind reading some steamy scenes.check out my blog tour page for more information on the book.

Rohit Gore The guardian Angels Review

18193351

The Blurb…

The Guardian Angels is the epic and tumultuous story of two star-crossed lovers who weren’t just soul-mates but were also each other’s protectors.

The fates of Adi Mehta and Radha Deodhar are deeply entwined when within days of their first rendezvous they save each other’s lives.

Despite their vast sociopolitical differences, they are drawn to an uncertain future fraught with contrasting ambitions, personas and ideologies.

. . . he is the son of a billionaire, she is the daughter of a socialist.
. . . he is quiet and unassuming, she is a firebrand and spirited.

However, the unexplained phenomena ties them forever – whenever they are in peril, they are each other’s only saviors.

Over the following two decades Adi and Radha live through hope and despair, joy and sadness, and try to decipher their relationship. As the truth of their bond is revealed, they must confront the true nature of love, and ultimately, their destinies

My Review…

The story revolves around two people with distinct personalities, who are always there to rescue when the other falls in some danger, but cannot be together due to their differences in opinion and principles. What makes the story practical and realistic is the compelling narration by the author in portraying the characters. The author’s words have a strong conviction and it made me want to finish the book without putting it down.

The story gets more interesting, starting with Adi and Radha as pre-teens and ending with them as evolved, worldly-wise people who’re sure of themselves and about what they want. The last 100-120 pages are golden. 

Overall, i thoroughly enjoyed the book and thank the author for giving me the chance to read it 🙂 This was the first Indian based book I’ve read and it didn’t let me down. Thoroughly enjoyable and recommenced it to anyone who likes good romance novel.

The Canary Room By Edwin F. Casebeer, Linda Casebeer

22909399

 

 

The Blurb…

In the spring of 1945, a young boy in the Pacific Northwest will make a life-or-death decision. Every morning, Herman “Hermy” Auerbach awakens to the pre-dawn song of canaries. The porch where he sleeps contains dozens of the songbirds. Outside, in the wider world, the Second World War enters its final, bloody months. Hermy comes to the Williams’ house under protest after his parents’ divorce, a result of his father leaving home initially to pursue his impossible dream of becoming an intelligence officer. Herman’s mother, remarried to a sailor, abandons her son to move across the country and start another family with her new husband. By the time he takes up residency in the canary room, Hermy has already suffered both from abandonment and bullying. Life with the large, messy Williams clan offers Hermy little relief, although he bonds with the other boys in the family. When the boys hatch a wild escape plan, Hermy finds himself facing death, and deciding if his life is worth the struggle to survive after losing everything. A compelling story of one boy’s struggle to survive the uncertainties of foster care and the war, The Canary Room brings to life the daily challenges of life on the US home front in vivid, historically accurate detail.

My Thoughts…

This is not my normal type of book  that i would read and so you will have to take this into account when you read my review. but i was asked to review it and decided to give it a chance…

Young Herman Auerbach has had a tumultuous upbringing. After his parents’ divorce and a bout with polio, Hermy lives first with his Auntie Ide and later with foster families. His foster mother, Gladys Williams, keeps dozens of canaries, a welcome animal presence for a boy who grew up with pet snakes and rats. Parallel structures allow comparison of Hermy’s current idyllic childhood with often traumatic events from his last few years. His thoughts and memories pervade the narrative, and World War II is a constant background hum.

 

The novel sets up a contrast between Hermy’s seemingly normal childhood  and his disturbing past.His dark history surfaces in details such as his smoking habit and the scar from a gunshot wound inflicted by a drunken uncle. His parents’ divorce, an uncle’s death, bullying, and hints of sexual abuse all add up to make Hermy seem much older than twelve, while the evocative wartime setting exposes harsh realities of rationing and the draft.

A well-written coming-of-age tale, The Canary Room will appeal to fans of John Irving’s and Don DeLillo’s works.

The Appeal of evil by Pembroke Sinclair review

 

 

 

 The-Appeal-of-Evil-Cover

 

The Blurb… 

Katie wants to invest her heart and soul in love, but she may lose both to Hell.

Katie, a senior in high school, is torn between loving the “good” guy, her childhood friend Wes who makes promises he doesn’t keep and abandons her when she needs him the most, and the “bad” guy, the new kid at school Josh who is also a real demon from Hell. Katie wants someone who pays attention to her and puts her first, but what is she willing to give up to find him?

My Review…

I was giving this book in exchange for a honest review.

Katie needs to choose, good or evil and believe me it’s not as easy as you would think.
This book has given me some mixed feelings. Let’s start with the good. Overall, this story is interesting and gets you hooked. IF you can stand the main character, Katie, which I couldn’t. She was a whiny, selfish shallow person. The overall writing was pretty good and has the biggest cliffhanger ever too.
As Katie struggles with her feelings towards both boys, she also senses that there is a blackness in her soul. Can she change her destiny?…..
The writing was really well done, and it was smooth. Not to mention that it portrayed the struggle between good and evil as difficult. Many times the main characters almost seem to find it easy to choose the side of good or the good guy. But it was clear that Katie wasn’t exactly happy with the good guys and she had reason not to be. It was an interesting dilemma, and I liked the difficulty that it was treated as.

For the most part, this is an enjoyable story. Though, Katie’s indecision got old really quick. Make a decision and live with it. This is book one of a series. If you are a fan of love triangles, I think you’ll enjoy this good vs evil story. The Appeal of Evil is suitable for ages 13+. There is some violence, rather graphic at times, and some coarse language.
