Once Burned  (Night Prince #1)

By Jeaniene Frost

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Well,this is the first book I read by Jeaniene Frost and I'm really impressed by the flow this book had.I never got confused or lost interest in what I was reading.Nevertheless,I have to admit that it wasn't quite what I expected it to be but it definately reached my expectations.

Leila is our brave heroine who gets to have a relationship with a very old but handsome vampire.Their story begins when Leila gets kidnapped and seeks help from the person her captors told her to find with her extraordinary abilities.Vlad Tepesh isn't your average vampire.With the ability to control fire he's feared among his kind.

When Leila calls out to him,he is immediately drawed to her and thus saved her and takes her to his "humble house".While there,they both experience new things and emotions.But simoultaneously they decide to explore their passion as well.

I liked Once Burned it wasn't something new to me,as I love to read stories about vampire,but it had something unique in it!

I definately recommend this book and I'm looking forward to reading Twice Tempted,the sequel to Once Burned.

Blurb:
She's a mortal with dark powers...

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude...until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire...

He's the Prince of Night...

Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all—but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula. Vlad's ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him—a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, however, passion ignites between them, threatening to consume them both. It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

Wicked Nights (Angels of the Dark #1)

By Gena Showalter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



“I think that’s the sweetest thing you’ve ever said to me.”

“I am a sweet man.What’s so funny?”


How sweet!!!Loved it....Definately a must read for The LOTU fans but others also.Wicked Nights is the first installment in Gena Showalter's new series,Angels Of The Dark.It's an incredible book which introduces us to the world of the angel warriors who although have suffered a lot,have survived.

Wicked Nights tells the story of Zacharel,an angel warrior,who we have previously met in Lords Of The Underworld series.As a leader of the warriors Zacharel must prevent them from killing any human even if the human is possessed.Annabelle Miller is a tortured soul who saw a demon murder her parents and was later accused for the crime.Having spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane Annabelle finally meets Zacharel.They were both doomed by their first encounter.

This book will keep you on edge as it contains many twists and turns,romance,humor {

“Can I just say what a bad boy you are right now?”

“Of course you can. You just did.”

“No, I mean – Oh, never mind, you spoiled it. "}

painful memories(for both of them) and a lot scenes with an obstinated,possessive,protective,adorable,jealous angel with "cute wings"(Annabelle's words).Despite of everything that each of them had to endure,together they find peace.

In Wicked Nights,we also see many Lords and their "wives" such as Lucien and Anya,Strider and Kaia,Amun and Haidee,sweet,gorgeous beyond imagination Paris without Sienna (A shame but I loved the scene where Zacharel introduces Annabelle to Paris...hahaha),an "angelic" couple Lucander and Bianka and finally we meet many new characters who I hope will get their story soon.Some of them are Thane, Bjorn, Xerxes and Koldo(poor Koldo has no wings but can teleport).

I have to admit that Wicked Nights reminded me a little of The Darkest Secret,Amun and Haidee's story,but I loved it nonetheless!!!It had a nice flow and sequence and I really liked the way things progressed.

I totally recommend this book and I'm looking forward to reading the following one.

Don’t miss the second book in Angels Of The Dark series Koldo’s story,due to hit stores early-mid 2013,BEAUTY AWAKENED coming soon from Gena Showalter.

Poughkeepsie By Debra Anastasia

Poughkeepsie


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Blurb:


He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him—just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She’s the same as a million other girls—certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe.

When the moment comes that Livia must do more than smile, without hesitation she steps into the fray to defend the homeless man. And she's surprised to discover an inexplicable connection with her new friend. After danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something in each of them. But it’s not long before their bond must prove its strength. Entanglements from the past challenge both their love and their lives.

Blake’s heart beats for Livia’s, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?

My Opinion:

“Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of wrongs done to it.Love doesn’t rejoice in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.”

The blurb and the sentences above is enough proves to show you how amazing this book is.I have read many books(well ok!!!)but this book is a first.He counts her smiles....

I wish I had one to count my smiles.

The Golden Lily (Bloodlines,#2)

By Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


"But perhaps the best part of all was that I, Sydney Katherine Sage, guilty of constantly analyzing the world around me, well, I stopped thinking."


Oh my God....Oh my God I can't believe what just happened.I just finished The Golden Lily,sequel to Bloodlines,and I can't believe what just happened.I want,no I N-E-E-D to read the next one like now,now.I promise this review will be spoilers free.Because you gyus need to stop what you're doing and go read this book and for those who haven't read Bloodlines they must first read that and later pick up The Golden Lily.

Well,I'll begin by saying that things get pretty intense for everyone and we also get to see many previous characters but the most shocking one is the presence of Angelina(we met her in Last Sacrifice,she was part of the Keepers and also the one who fought with Rose).

What impressed me the most about this book was the fact that every single character seemed to be more matured and moved on than Bloodlines.They also seemed more like a real family,they cared about each other,they took decisions all together as the group they have become to be.But most of all,I'm really proud for Adrian who has come so far and finally succeed in becoming the man who was always supposed to be.

As for Sydney,if I had her in front of me right now I swear I would kill her.I mean how can she do that to him?After so much pain and betrayal...And I guarantee you that your "wise" and "right" choice won't bring you happiness but I Adrian would!!!I don't think I can say how sorry I'm for Adrian because let's face it,how many more rejections can he take before they finally shatter what little is left of his heart?

Nevertheless,to my friends,I say that I'm still Team Dimitri on Vampire Academy series but I'm Team Adrian on Bloodlines series.These are two entirely different series because VA is all about Rose whilst Bloodlines is about Sydney.Anyway Adrian wasn't meant for Rose.With Rose he pretented to be someone else,someone who wasn't him and in Bloodlines we see the real Adrian Ivaskov.

So,if you ask me if it's worth reading I'll just say what are you still doing here????

The Marriage Bargain

The Marriage Bargain

By Jennifer Probst

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Marriage Bargain is the first book I read by Jennifer Probst and I really loved it.

This book tells the story of two childhood friends who desperately need to find someone to marry,both for their own reasons.Here is the most hilarious thing,they make up a list on how her and his Mr/Ms perfect should be:


Her list:

1)A Mets fan
2)loves books, art, and poetry
3)believes in monogamy
4)wants children
5)knows how to communicate with a woman
6)loves animals
7)has a moral code of ethics and believes in honesty
8)a good lover
10)Needs $150,000 available cash

His list:

1)A woman who does not love me.
2)A woman I do not desire to sleep with.
3)A woman who does not have a big family.
4)A woman who does not have any animals
5)A woman who does not want any children.
6)A woman who has an independent career.
7)A woman who will view the relationship as a business venture.
8)A woman who is not overly emotional or impulsive.
9)A woman I can trust

Yeah, I guess that they don't get what they wished for but at least they know each other.I loved both Alexa and Nick because even though they claimed not to love each other,their actions said the opposite.They were both jealous,they knew what the other wanted,they encouraged each other,were honest(it's a really hard thing) and they tried to make this "fake" marriage work.Of course,there were times that I couldn't stop laughing(many weird incidents) and other that I wanted to slap both of them so as to see what a wonderful thing they had between them.

I totally recommend this book to anyone who appreciates romance.It's worth reading as it will grip your attention from the first till the last page.

Lords Of The Uderworld Series

Posted on Friday, June 15, 2012 2:07 PM

This is my second series review.My first one was about Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.Here is my series review on  the LOTU series by Gena Showalter.After this I'll review the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole.

Long ago, twelve immortals warriors – each more dangerously seductive than the last -- stole and opened Pandora’s box, unleashing the evil from within. Now they carry that evil within themselves. Violence, Pain, Death, Disease, Disaster, Misery, Doubt, Promiscuity, Defeat, Lies, Secrets, and Wrath. When a powerful enemy returns, they will travel the world in search of a sacred relic of the gods – one that threatens to destroy them all.(Goodreads)


The Darkest Fire (Lords of the Underworld 0.5)

By Gena Showalter

My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:

He is the guardian of hell, more monster than man. She is the goddess of oppression, more angel than woman. Together they will enter the flames to battle a dangerous horde of demon lords -- and discover a passion unlike any other....

My Opinion:
A nice beggining to a wonderful series.Not much to say,I liked it and I'm impressed by their selfless actions.

The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1)
By Gena Showalter

My Rating: 5 Stars

Blurb:
His powers -- Inhuman...
His passion -- Beyond immortal . . .
All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member -- a man trapp ed in a hell of his own.

Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments . . . and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction -- and a soul-shattering test of love . . .
My Opinion:

The Darkest Night is a compelling book urging you to read more and more until you notice that you have finished it and say"What?I want more..."Yeah I know the feeling.
The Darkest Night is the first book in the Lords Of The Underworld series.Twelve warriors punished to live in earth after a tragic incident.
We first meet the Keeper of Violence,Maddox.As the keeper of Violence Maddox is fierce,strong(like all the Lords are),has no patience and lives for war.However,Maddox has been curced and has to die every night.Thus he almost never leaves the house(half of the lords live in a fortress in Budapest).Ashlyn Darrow is a human with an ability to hear every convesation that has been taken place at the location she stands.Both Maddox and Ashlyn are tormented by their abilities and their gruesome past.
The Lords are attacted by the Hunters,a group that has been gathered to fight the lords,when Aslhlyn shows up.Maddox speculates that Ashlyn may be one of them so he takes her with him back to their house.But his time is running out as midnight approaches and so does death.Soon problems will arise and the war between the Lords and the Hunters will intensify.
An incredible,worth-reading book that will capture your attention from the first till the last page.The chemistry between the two main characters is very intence and as many can say Maddox and Ashlyn fell in love from the first sight.
I absolutely recommend this to everyone and if you are not interested in reading the whole series you can read the book you choose individually.It's your choice.Although,in my opinion you should probably read the books in a chronologically order.
Prequel to this book is The Darkest Fire(I totally recommend it)and sequel to this book is The Darkest Kiss(also recommended).


The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld #2)


My Rating: 5 Stars


Blurb:
She has tempted many men...but never found her equal. Until now.
Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death--a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining..

My Opinion:
The The Darkest Kiss is sequel to The Darkest Night and prequel to The Darkest Pleasure.
I had so much fun with this book!!!
Ever since I read The Darkest Night I've been dying to learn more about Anya and Lucien.
Lucien,death himself,is really serious,he's no fun.Anya though is extremly the opposite.I liked them as a couple and I also liked the way they communicated.They understood each other and they were both intence.
They meet in a club and when Anya sees him,she is immediatly attracted to him.But Lucien knows that she has to be playing with him as he isn't attractive(his words not mine).As death,he was never able to have a relationship because he knew that the person would finally die and didn't want to live knowing that.Anya(minor Godess of Anarchy) on the other hand was always free to do as she liked.Until she was put in "jail"(for immortals) for killing a guard.Being the godess of Anarcy she despised being confined and so her father gave her a Key.Now chronus despearatly wants this key in order for his plans to work.So,he commands Lucien to either take it or steal it from her and failure means the suffering of his friends.But Anya being Anya refuses to give up the key and his only choice now is to kill her.Or not???
I looooooved this book!!!!!Anya and Lucien are my favourite couple of the series and they have everything a couple needs.They have chemistry(more than that actually),they understand each other,they are funny(especially Anya),they are never bored(how can they be when they rock) and so on.Like I said I love them.So far,I believe that this series is a very worth reading one and a must have for everyone's shelves.


The Darkest Pleasure (Lords of the Underworld #3)
By Gena Showalter

My Rating: 5 Stars


Blurb:
Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. Yet he craves a mortal woman, Danika Ford, more than breath and will do anything to claim her--even defy the gods.

Danika is on the run. For months she's eluded the Lords of the Underworld, immortal warriors who won't rest until she and her family have been destroyed. But her dreams are haunted by Reyes, the warrior whose searing touch she can't forget. Yet a future together could mean death to all they both hold dear....

My Opinion:
The third book in LOTU seris tells the story of Reyes the Keeper of Pain.We met both Reyes and Danika in the previous book The Darkest Kiss where Danika's family were abducted by the lords.After escaping Danika run away and Reyes followed her.And guess what!!!!He caught her....Both Danika and Reyes have suffered enough and it's time for a break.After months of chasing her,he finally caught her and his planning to keep her.But this time Danika knows everything.
There isn't much to say about Reyes story other than it is unique.It has everything a well written story needs.Love,pain(lots of it),adventure,fiction,death and even a good foreteller.Who could resist it???This story shows us how love can change a person either good or bad(but it sure changes us).
Nevertheless,I belive that the blurb says it all and I don't want to reveal any spoilers.It's a must read book and I highly recommend it.



The Darkest Prison (Lords of the Underworld #3.5)

My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:
Passion and danger collide in this brand-new, eBook exclusive Lords of the Underworld adventure!

Once, Atlas, the Titan god of Strength, was the Greek goddess Nike's slave. Now, he is her master. And soon these sworn enemies destined to destroy one another will be forced to risk everything for a chance at love...
My Opinion:

The Darkest Prison is a short story that can also be found in Into the Darkanthology.This novella should be read after The Darkest Pleasure and before The Darkest Whisper.I have to admit that this story is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
We see two new characters which are sworn enemies since our hero is the Titan god of Strength and our heroine is the Greek goddess of Strength.Nike once enslaved Atlas and carved her name on his chest but now the situation has reversed.Now Nike has to obey Atlas but he the only thing he wants from her is a nice sweet revenge.So,he decides that since she carved her name on his chest he would carve his name on her back.And so he did....
This story is a fascinating one and grabs your attention from the first to the last page.I loooooved both characters but I have to say that Atlas was my wek point.I mean who wouldn't want a man like him.Even when it hurt him to do actions that he knew would have severe consequences for him,in the end,he did everything that was possible for Nike's safety.
This book is a proper additionto to the LOTU series and a must read for everyone!!!!!


The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld #4)

My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:
He is the keeper of Doubt and his entire world’s about to be rocked.

Bound by the demon of doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern…until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she’d fall for a kind human who wouldn’t rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora’s box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love…
My Opinion:
Prequel to The Darkest Pleasure and sequel to The Darkest Passion.The Darkest Whisper tells the story of Sabin,keeper of Doubts.We have also seen Sabin multiple times in the previous books.In his book,the keeper of Doubts reveals his true self and let down his guard for a special not human woman.
Gwen isn't your average human girl.She is much more.Abducted by the hunters Gwen has lost almost a year of her life until the lords set her free.As soon as she is out of the cage she kills the guard by ripping out his throat with her teeth.The Lords saw how fierce and strong she was and took her with them.I particularly loved the conversation she and Sabim had on the plain back to Buda:
“Demon?” Gwen gasped out. Her back jerked ramrod-straight, and her face leeched of
color. “Did you just say demon?”

Oh, uh…did I say that?” Strider once again glanced around the plane helplessly. “No, no.
I think I said seaman.”

Yeah I know it's just incredible.
Anyway,When they get to Buda she and Sabin get to spend more time together and know each other better.Although,they don't have many things in common they both understand the need for love and so their realationship begins...
As always I loved this book and it was everything I expected it to be.Totally recommend it.

Hint:Team Harpies..


Heart of Darkness (Lords of the Underworld #4.5)

By Gena Showalter

My Rating:5 Stars


Blurb:
Three "New York Times"-bestselling masters of paranormal romance deliver three brand-new tales of seduction. Includes the scintillating new Lords of the Underworld story The Darkest Angel by Showalter; Lady of the Nile by Krinard; and Love Me to Death by Shayne. Original.


My Opinion:

In Heat of darkness you will find a short story about the warrior angel Lysander and Gwen's "evil" harpy sister,Bianka.Their story should be read after The Darkest Whisper and before The Darkest Passion.I had so much fun reading their story.They were both passionate and fierce and I really liked their attitude.It's a shame it was so short.There are so many stunning scenes but my favourite one was Lysander and Paris's scene oil wrestling match.(it's so funny and only Bianka gets to see them).In this book we also see Sabin and Gwen's wedding....So much funnnnnnnnnn!!


The Darkest Passion (Lords of the Underworld #5)


My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:
For weeks, the immortal warrior Aeron has sensed an invisible female presence. An angel--demon-assassin--has been sent to kill him. Or has she? Olivia claims she fell from the heavens, giving up immortality because she couldn't bear to harm him. But trusting--and falling for--Olivia will endanger them all. So how has this "mortal" with the huge blue eyes already unleashed Aeron's darkest passion?
Now, with an enemy hot on his trail and his faithful demon companion determined to remove Olivia from his life, Aeron is trapped between duty and consuming desire. Worse still, a new executioner has been sent to do the job Olivia wouldn't....
My Opinion:
Finally Aeron's story....I wanted so much to read his story in order to find out is so importsnt about him for Paris to give up Sienna.I I did...
Aeron is really unique in his own way.After so much death the only thing that he wants is piece and quiet.But not everyone is of the same opinion.
Olivia,now a fallen angel,fell in order to protect Aeron.Once upon a time she was an angel who brought happiness and laughter to humans.Now she is instructed to either kill Aeron or fall.Guess she chooses the second.Aeron commited a crime by keeping Legion bound to earth(by bounding her to him) and now that Olivia has fallen someone else will take her task.
Aeron and Olivia come together in the most fragile times,as the war between the Lords and the hunters has growth and once again we see Galen "torturing" them.But their path is already set in stone.Olivia didn't only lose her wings in order not to kill Aeron but she also wanted to experience all life's aspects as mortals do.And guess who she wanted to experience them with????Yes you're right,with our gorgeous hero.Although he is reluctant at first,he decides to give in(really??he just can't resist her).With so many danger around them can they really be together???
This book is one of my favourite ones and I enjoyed reading it.It's an excellent addition to the series and a very intriguing one as we get more information about Wrath's Keeper and where the Lords and up after dying...
Totally recommend it..


The Darkest Lie (Lords of the Underworld #6)


My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:
Forced to his knees in agony whenever he speaks the truth, Gideon can recognize any lie—until he captures Scarlet, a demon-possessed immortal who claims to be his long-lost wife. He doesn’t remember the beautiful female, much less wedding — or bedding — her. But he wants to . . . almost as much as he wants her.

But Scarlet is keeper of Nightmares, too dangerous to roam free, and a future with her could mean ultimate ruin. Especially as Gideon’s enemies draw closer . . . and the truth threatens to destroy all he’s come to love . .
My Opinion:

The sixth book in LOTU series is hilarious beyond anyone's imagination.
Gideon,keeper of the Demon of Lies,can never utter a thruth without enduring agonizing pain.Able to recognise any lie but yet not the one's who ,matters the most.Scarlet,keeper of Nightmares and sexy as hell,feels betrayed by Gideon,her supposed to be husband and father of her child,as when she needed him most he was lost.But Gideon remembers nothing of the things Scarlet tells him,the only thing he knows is that he wants her.Two controversial topics collide together,thruth and lies.But what is thruth and what a lie???Have these things really happen or is one of them misled???
Gideon and Scarlet's story is a love story that will leave you starved for more.Humor and action aren't absent from the book(especially humor) while emotion dominates.This book shouldn't be missed as it also contains important info about the sequel The Darkest Secret.


The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld #7)


My Rating: 5 Stars

Blurb:
Keeper of the demon of Secrets, Amun can manipulate the darkest thoughts of anyone nearby. But when the immortal warrior is chained and isolated to protect those he loves, death is his only hope of release—until he meets Haidee, a fellow prisoner whose beauty and hidden vulnerability draw him into a reckless test of his loyalty.

Haidee is a demon-assassin, raised to despise Amun's kind. Yet how can she hate the man whose touch sets her aflame? But to save him, she must give herself body and soul...and face the wrath of a powerful adversary sworn to destroy her.
My Opinion:

Oh...Finally Amun's story.I can't tell you how much I love it.It's both my favourite book in the series but also Amun's my favourite Lord.
Amun,Keeper of the Demon of Secrets,can see everyone's thought but after his recently trip to hell more than one demon is inside him and guess what...they are driving him crazy.Haidee,a demon-assassin former hunter and the one responsible for Baden's death,former keeper of Wrath is on the run until Strider caughts her and takes her to Buda.There Haidee is put in the room next to Amun's who is lying unconcious in his bed.She mistakes him for her boyfriend Micah and so tries to help him.Well,she doesn't succeeds to escape but she suceeds in drawing the attention of the angel Zacharel who advises the Lords that if they want to save Amun,they should sent him back to hell and this time he will only take Haidee with him.Are they going to survive this trip???
As I said F-A-V-O-U-R-I-T-E book.There isn't much to say other than that just pick it and read it.You won't be disappointed.


The Darkest Surrender (Lords of the Underworld #8)


My Rating: 5 Stars

Blurb:
Possessed by the demon of Defeat, Strider cannot lose a challenge without suffering unimaginable pain. For him, nothing stands in the way of victory. Until Kaia, an enchanting Harpy, tempts him to the razor's edge of surrender.Known among her people as The Disappointment, Kaia must bring home the gold in the Harpy Games or die. Strider is a distraction she can't afford because he has an agenda of his own-steal first prize, an ancient godly artifact, before the winner can be named. But as the competition heats up, only one prize will matter-the love neither had thought possible...
My Opinion:

I love every book of this series so this book proved exactly why I love them so much.The Darkest Surrender is the eighth book of The Lords Of The Underworld and I can say that I am in love with all the lords and wish they were real.I love every series of Gena showalter not only Lords of the Underworld but also Alien Huntress series,Atlantis series,Stand Alone series,all of her anthologies and of course Royal House of Shadows.

So,here are a few lines of the book:

“Is it my birthday already?”

“No,” Juliette said. “It’s mine.”

Speaking of, “When is your birthday?” Strider asked Kaia. His friends would assume he wanted to know now of all times simply to irritate the newcomers, to show them just how little they mattered. And that was partly true. But Strider found he really, really wanted to know anyway. For himself.

Wide silver-gold eyes swung to him. “You don’t know?”

“No.”

Pouting, she twirled a strand of her hair. “How can you not know?”

“Do you know mine?” he asked.

“Of course I do. It’s the day you met me.”

As good a day as any. “No, it’s not, because that was a trick question, baby doll. I don’t actually have a birthday. I was created fully formed, not born.” True story.

“You can be such a moron.” She threw up her arms, exasperated. “Don’t argue with me about this kind of thing. I’ll always be right. Seriously. You were dead until you met me and we both know it. Which means I brought you to life. So, happy belated birthday.”

Amun laughed, which was a shock. The serious warrior never laughed. Anya nodded as if she’d never heard a more solid argument and Gideon snickered behind his hand. Scarlet slapped him in the back of the head.

“You’re right,” Strider said, wanting to laugh himself. “So when’s yours?”

“Shut up,” Juliette suddenly snarled. “I thought we were going to trade insults.”


The Darkest Seduction (Lords of the Underworld #9)


My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:

Possessed by the demon of Promiscuity, immortal warrior Paris is irresistibly seductive—but his potent allure comes at a terrible price. Every night he must bed someone new, or weaken and die. And the woman he craves above all others is the one woman he'd thought was forever beyond his reach …until now. Newly possessed by the demon of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone is racked by a ruthless need to punish those around her. Yet in Paris's arms, the vulnerable beauty finds soul-searing passion and incredible peace. Until a blood feud between ancient enemies heats up. Will the battle against gods, angels and creatures of the night bind them eternally—or tear them apart?
My Opinion:
Go here .

Into the Dark (Lords of the Underworld 0.5 & 3.5)

By Gena Showalter

My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:

"New York Times" and "USA Today"-bestselling author Showalter delivers an ultra-sexy anthology containing three darkly sensual otherworldly tales and a brand-new Lords of the Underworld guide. This collection includes the novellas "The Darkest Fire, The Amazon's Curse," and "The Darkest Prison."
The Darkest Facts (Lords of the Underworld)

By Gena Showalter

My Rating:5 Stars

Blurb:

I, Cronus, King of the Titans, powerful warrior god, defender of the people, hereby command you to read and enjoy this Lords of the Underwold guide. I am not mentioned nearly enough, but that is neither here nor there. What you will find in this guide includes: notes from those vile fools, the Hunters; interviews with the Lords of the Underworld, as organized by that irreverent whelp William the Ever Randy; a candid discussion about the Lords of the Underworld among their women; answers to questions readers have been dying to know; and an intimate look at my very own sacred scrolls.

As I said, you will read and you will enjoy. That is your mission. Nay, your honor. Do not disappoint me. You will not like the results. Just ask Aeron, keeper of the demon of Wrath. Bad things tend to happen.

This Lords of the Underworld guide is also available in the anthology Into the Dark.

The End...
I Believe that the next book is going to be about Kane...

Yours To Keep

Yours to Keep  (Kowalski Family #3) 

By Shannon Stacey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


It's the first book I read by Shannon Stacey and I really liked it...I know that I should have started from the first book in the series but when I saw the blurb I couldn't resist but reading it.

Sean Kowalski has just returned from the army and he already has a job,home money and a fiancee.

Emma is in a big trouble.In order to alleviate her gradmother who believes that she needs a man to run such a big house.So,she makes up a story and tells her grandmother that she has a fiance and they are happy(she is not crazy)!!!!With those things in mind her grandmother decides to visit them and when she does the lie unfolds...

While spending time together both Sean and Emma are having fun and discover how compatible they are in both life and bed.*cough cough*.They have chemistry and damn if it doesn't show.I loved every minute of this book and but the last scene was my favourite one..

I highly recommend it and even if you haven't read the previous books(I haven't but I'm planning on it)I'm sure you will make it out...

Favourite lines:
“Are you Sean Kowalski?”

“Yup.”

“I’m Emma Shaw…your fake fiancĂ©e.”

“Say what?”

Mine to Hold  (Wicked Lovers #6)

By Shayla Black

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I have finally finished it!!!!!The reason why I'm saying this is because I really expected more of Tyler...The sixth book in Wicked Lovers tells the story of Tyler and how he ended up where he is now.

Once upon a time,there were two friends one of whom was married.After a terrible accident,the married guy stayed paralyzed from the waist below.One dark night he asked his friend to sleep with his wife(crazy,isn't it).Both his wife and his friend were hesitant but accepted.And so it happended.But after it was done the married man got really upset and threw his friend out of his house and months later his wife as well.(who was pregnant with his friend's child and had nowhere else to go to).I think that says a lot about this man who didn't even look back or even attempted to help this woman who because of his choice suffered.And no this man isn't Tyler.

Tyler loved his friend but he also loved his friend's wife too.So when his friend asked him to sleep with his wife he eagerly accepted.That is,until he threw him out of their lives.Tyler had no idea what he left behind when he left the town they all lived in.So imagine his surprise when Delany(his ex-friend's ex-wife,yeah throwing her out wasn't enough he also devirced her)showed up in his house with a child in her arms and claimed that someone was trying to kill them.

I liked the book,I really did but the story wasn't totally believable and the way the showed they love wasn't enough for me.I do understand that by making love with someone you further connect with him but sex isn't always enough.This couple didn't get it.

While Tyler loved her,she was confused and was trying to deal with her problems.But I never saw that.She was supposed to be strong but the only thing she did when something came up was cry and run into Tyler's arms.Really????I even wonder if she knows what strong means...

Nevertheless It's a great addition in the series and I would only recommended it to those who have read the series or those who love being treated like"delicate flowers".

The Vincent Brothers

The Vincent Brothers (The Vincent Boys, #2)
By Abbi Glines

My rating: 5 of 5 stars




Wow...Just wow!!!!Another 5 stars for Abbi Glines.I really looooooooove her books(considering I have read them all except Leif (Existence, #2.5) and While It Lasts...yet)she is an amazing,brilliant,incredible writer and I can't wait to read more books written by her!!!

In The Vincent Brothers we see Sawyer Vincent trying to persuade everyone including himself that he's way past Ashton.Things get even "better" when Ash's cousin Lana decides to spend the summer with them.Lana has a huge crash with Sawyer but he doesn't even know let alone notices it!!!He is so frustrating...

Anyway,as time passes he realises that he really likes spending time with Lana and that things with her are different than when he was with Ash.He comes to like and anticipate the times they spent together but is it enough for him to forget???

Lana,on the other hand,is sweet and forgiving,warm hearted and selfless but strong nonetheless and after so many rejections(her father should be really put in a lake full of vipers)she believes that she really deserves to be loved and be first for someone not the second or third choice.

However we don't usually get want we either deserve or want.True story.This a story of a girl who all she wants is to be loved by someone.Anyone.The need to be loved is so overwhelming(she has never been loved) that it really made me want to get into the book and hug her.

In this book we also see characters for the previous book,The Vincent Boys,and I have to admit that I don't really like Ash cause it wasn't good enough for her to destroy the brother's relationship she also had to destroy her cousin's life.Someone is really selfish.Hint her name is Ash.*cough cough*

For the above mentioned reasons I believe that this book is a must read by anyone!!!I totally recommend it!!!! 

Favourite quotes:
Sawyer: What’re you doing?
Me: Watching Ash pack
Sawyer: Why aren’t you packing?
Me: B/C I’m stressing over the black bears that are going to eat me in my sleep
Sawyer: HA! No black bears will eat you. They don’t do red heads. You’re safe.
Me: Very funny. I happen to know that they aren’t very picky and that there are plenty of them in Cheaha.
Sawyer: Naw, I’ve never seen one there.
Me: Well they’re there. Google it.
Sawyer: I’ll keep you safe.
Me: Maybe during the day but at night when I’m alone in my tent they’ll come for me.

And:

"You should never and I mean, <b>never</b>, be anyone’s second choice. Anyone who doesn’t see you for the incredible gift you are is a blind bastard.”

Lethal Rider

Lethal Rider 
I've been waiting so long to read this book and I have to say that it really reached my expectations.We met Regan and Thanatos in Immortal Rider where the two of them has a series of unexpected incidents which lead to the expected result,at least for Regan.

After eight months of particularly being in "comma" Thanatos awakes to take revenge of the person responsible for his condition.But what he doesn't anticipate is finding Regan pregnant with his child(or should I say his agimortus).Regan knew the consequences of the decision she took long ago and was ready to pay them,but is she now?

I really liked the book(well it was better than the previous one)it had a nice flow and the plot was believable.The characters had a hard job to accomplice but nevertheless they did,they worked through their problems and really understood each other.I also liked the end.The way their former "guardian" tried to protect them even though when he knew what his future might hold he risked it all just to save one of them.

Anyway,I'm looking forward to reading the following book Rogue Rider(although he's a meany his very "sweet" thumbs up for Reseph)
