The LUX: Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx)
The Lux Series #1 & 2
Author: Jennifer Armentrout
Expected Release Date: June 3, 2014


Obsidian 

There's an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he's hot...until he opens his mouth. He's infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he lights me up with a big fat bulls-eye. Turns out he has a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal his abilities and the only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is. 

Onyx 

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


The LUX: Consequence (Opal & Origin)
The Lux Series # 3& 4
Author: Jennifer Armentrout
Expected Release Date: June 3, 2014 


Opal

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing alien hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.


Origin

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?

ARC Review: Sweetest Surrender (The Serafina: Sin City #3) by Katie Reus

Sweetest Surrender (The Serafina: Sin City #3)

By Katie Reus

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sweetest Surrender is the third book of The Serafina: Sin City series but it can be read as a stand-alone too.

What if the only way to survive was to hide?

Meet Angel. Angel has been hiding from the life she once knew in order to survive. Working as a waitress at a restaurant in the Serafina Casino in Las Vegas, she’s trying to rely on herself, never allowing anyone to get too close to her until she meets Vadim.

Meet Vadim (a russian God!). Vadim is the quite type and Angel is attracted to him from the very beginning. He works security for the Serafina Casino and he's an expert at computers. Vadim is every woman's dream but for Angel he's proving to be her salvation. But is Angel ready to take a chance or will she run?

I loved loved this book but it was really short (ok not that short but I needed more!) It was an enjoyable read filled with suspense, action, romance, a spoiled dog with no qualms about showing who she loves and a hero with an accent. The book had two POVs and it was just incredible to see what these people were feeling. It also helped us understand why the acted as the did.

Highly recommended!

EXCERPT 4 - SINFUL SECRETS by Cynthia Eden

The car was finally slowing. Yes! She lunged for the door handle. Jason just tossed out his hand, a move that was lightning fast, and his fingers curled around her wrist. “You’re not getting away again.”

She had to get away. “It’s my life we’re talking about! Someone back there—someone wants to destroy that life.”

His hold tightened on her. “I won’t let that happen.”

Laughter broke from her then. Wild, angry. “Right…as if you weren’t the one who tried to destroy me the last time I was in Vegas.” There was a reason she’d stay away for so long. That reason was currently rubbing the inside of her wrist with his callused fingertips.

About The Authors


SINFUL SURRENDER by Elisabeth Naughton He's been watching her, and now he's here, in the dimly lit bar of the swanky Vail resort, pretending not to notice her. Songwriter Grace Ryder has never liked the spotlight, but her skin tingles whenever his sexy gaze drifts her way. Only one night will prove whether he's safety or sin. Aegis operative Brian Walker's orders are clear: observe, but don't touch. Things change, though, the moment the leggy brunette makes him an offer he can't refuse. Desire leads to seduction, but it comes at a price. Because someone wants her dead, and if Brian's not careful, his obsession for a woman he never should have touched could get them both killed.

Perfectly Broken by Prescott Lane 
Publication date: March 2014 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis:
Even after years of trauma therapy, Peyton still believes she’s broken. She has little desire to date or show off her natural beauty, content simply to hang out with her best friends and run her pie shop in New Orleans. But her world turns upside-down when a handsome architect and self-confessed player shows up in her shop and thinks she’s perfect, much more than the usual hook-up. While Peyton does her best to resist his charms, believing she could never be enough for him, she can’t deny the obvious heat between them.

With Reed determined to have her, Peyton must decide whether to continue to hide behind her apron and baggy clothes or take a chance and share her scars with Reed, a man with a playboy reputation and scars of his own — a dark past he can’t possibly share with Peyton, not after learning the horrors she’s endured. But if they can find a way to trust each other, and themselves, they just might be able to heal, to save each other, to live perfectly broken together.

Excerpt 

A rush of vanilla hit him as a breeze blew through the air. He took off his jacket and slid it around Peyton’s shoulders, his fingers grazing her neck when he moved her hair to the side. Her eyes locked on his, and he pulled on the jacket collar to bring Peyton close to him. He took his time, teasing her, his warm breath just barely brushing her lips. Her hands slid up the muscles of his back, pulling his lips even closer to hers, hoping he’d kiss her, ready to crawl up his body, begging, if he didn’t. 

Reed gave a sexy smile, eyeing her mouth, and took a step back. Peyton felt the muscles between her legs clench in disappointment, but she wasn’t about to show it, straightening her spine. “I thought you said our date would be ‘pretty damn hot’?”

Reed laughed. He hadn’t laughed like this with a woman before. She was just so damn funny and cute, standing before him wearing his jacket. He didn’t mind her wearing oversized clothing if it was his. “Come here,” he said and pulled her back to him

Publication date: February 24th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
Discover the love story of Moya and Branden; from the very first kiss, to the moment where forever begins.

Includes the first and final book:


Impossibly Love:
All Moya Douglas wants to do is study hard, maintain her scholarship, and make her mother proud while attending college. She doesn't have time for a boyfriend or going on dates arranged by her best friend. Moya doesn't believe in love. And she has no intention of ever finding it. 

Branden McCarthy is determined to change her views.
A selfless romantic who's had his heart broken in the past, Branden is fascinated with Moya's personality and hopes to develop something real with her—a connection so strong it'll open her heart. But just when things start to work between the two, Branden’s secret threatens to get in the way.

Will Moya finally do the impossible and give love a chance with Branden, or will fear keep them apart?


Impossibly True: 
Moya is finally listening to her heart. 
She’s ready for love and willing to bask in all the joy it brings, but still, she insists on taking things slow. After all, her relationship with Branden isn't the only one that needs a chance.

With his health scare behind him, Branden wants nothing more than to get his life back on track—play hockey again, catch up on school, and get things moving with his girlfriend.

In the middle of strengthening their relationship and sorting out their individual lives, trouble begins to brew, testing the depth of their feelings for each other.

Can Branden and Moya once again overcome their trials and prove that their love is indeed true, or will past ghosts and new temptations drive them apart forever?

 Excerpt 

Moya stayed in the room the rest of the evening. I knew she was upset after seeing Samantha’s text, so I wanted to assure her again that it meant nothing. 

I knocked twice on the door then let myself in when she didn’t respond. She sat down on the loveseat by the window, appearing deep in thought as she picked at her jeans. I sat down next to her.

“Moya, there’s really nothing to be jealous about.”

Slowly, I placed my hand at her back. “Come on, babe don’t let that ruin our weekend.”

“I’m not jealous. I’m fine.”

“Really?”

She rose to her feet, walking over to the window. “Yes. Really.” 

I got up as well. “You should talk to me when you’re upset, and don’t walk away like you did earlier.” 

Her expression relaxed as I took her hand. Turning slightly to meet my gaze, she said, “I’m not used to…being like this. I don’t like it. It makes me feel…”

“Vulnerable,” I finished for her. “I understand, babe.”

She faced me fully, her chocolate brown eyes craving for me. “I hate that another girl loved you that much, before me.” She laughed at herself. “It makes me seem possessive, but I want to love you more…so much more than she did.”

“That’s intense,” I teased. 

Scoffing, Moya rolled her eyes and spun away from me, staring out the window again. I edged closer and cloaked my arms around her. “I like how passionate you are, because I’m the same. I want to be your first and your last. I want every part of you, Moya.”

Seconds later, I was peering into her mesmerizing eyes again. My heart started to race just as her breathing strengthened. There was something rising between us. Heat circulated in the air, making it difficult to control my thoughts. 

Unexpectedly, Moya pushed into my chest, biting on my bottom lip as she kissed me hard.

We continued for a while, burning up in desire, until Moya yanked on my shirt and guided me over to the bed.

ARC Review: Life Lived Twice by Sherrie Wouters

Life Lived Twice

By Sherrie Wouters

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Fav Quote:


"Being here with you right now, in this place, makes me feel like it was just yesterday the two of us were here together making that promise for forever.” - LB

Tess Winters is ready to begin her new life. Little does she know though, that to go forward she'll have to go back.

Logan(Addison) has being waiting so long to meet Tess (Laylah) again.

One touch is all it takes for Tess to uncover her past. When Logan and Tess meet, their attraction is instant. The electricity that burns between them ignites even from the very first look, the very first touch.

Tess feels as if she knows Logan despite never having seen him before. Or so she thinks. That's when she starts dreaming about her past. Her dreams are so real to her that Tess is beginning to question everything. Will she get trapped in her past? Is Tess ready to face the truth? Because the thruth is out there and it's waiting for her...

This is the first book I read by Sherrie Wouters and I feel it's not going to be the last. Filled with mystery, suspense and a love big enough to last through eternity, Life Lived Twice will leave you wanting more (it surely left me).

What I loved about this book was how the author chose to present us Logan and Tess's story. We got to see their present lives and every once in a while we would get a glimpse(flashbacks) of their past ones. It was so incredible how everything seemed to fit together. It had such a nice flow.
The end though, it was something else. It was so unexpected and it ripped me apart. I loved, loved their story and I can't believe it ended so tragically!

All in all, the characters, both main and secondary, were amazing while the story was INCREDIBLE. Tess and Logan's love story was a bittersweet one and I feel lucky to have read it.

Totally recommended!

Cold Stone Touch
**Amazon** **Barnes & Noble** **iTunes** **Kobo**

STONE COLD TOUCH Synopsis: 

Every touch has its price Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could. 
 But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay… "Constantly entertaining...the narrative sizzles with as much tension as romance." Kirkus Reviews on White Hot Kiss

And...Don't forget to check out the first book in The Dark Elements Series,

WHITE HOT KISS!

White Hot Kiss
ABOUT WHITE HOT KISS: 

One kiss could be the last. Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses. Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever. 
 Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul. But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Cynthia is also a two-time finalist for the RITA® award (she was a finalist both in the romantic suspense category and in the paranormal romance category).

Cynthia lives along the Alabama Gulf Coast. She loves romance novels, horror movies, and chocolate. Her favorite hobbies including hiking in the mountains (searching for waterfalls) and spelunking. 



VIVI ANNA: A BAD GIRL at heart, Vivi Anna likes to burn up the pages with her original unique brand of fantasy fiction. Whether it’s in ancient Egypt, or in an apocalyptic future, Vivi always writes fast paced action-adventure with strong independent women that can kick some butt, and dark delicious heroes to kill for.

Once shot at while repossessing a car, Vivi decided that maybe her life needed a change. The first time she picked up a pen and put words to paper, she knew she had found her heart. Within two paragraphs, she realized she could write about getting into all sorts of trouble without suffering the consequences.

When Vivi isn’t writing, you can find her causing a ruckus at downtown bistros, flea markets, or playgrounds. 



MICHELE HAUF: Michele has been writing romance, action-adventure and fantasy stories for over nineteen years. Her first published novel was DARK RAPTURE.

France, musketeers, vampires and faeries populate her stories. And if she followed the adage 'write what you know', all her stories would have snow in them. Fortunately, she steps beyond her comfort zone and writes about countries she has never visited and of creatures she has never seen. 




PATRICE MICHELLE: P.T. Michelle is the young adult and new adult pseudonym of Patrice Michelle, author of fifteen romance novels and novellas. When P.T. isn’t writing, she can usually be found reading or taking pictures of landscapes, sunsets and anything beautiful or odd in nature.

P.T. is an American living in France (for now ), and when she’s not writing, her other passion is photography. She often shares her snapshots of her adventures on her Facebook page.

P.T.’s FB page is also where she spends most of her time interacting with readers and talking about her favorite subject, books. She hopes you’ll join her. 


ERICA STEVENS: My name is not really Erica Stevens, it is a pen name that I chose in memory of two amazing friends lost too soon. I was born in New York and moved to Mass as a child. I spent my time growing up between NY and Mass so I have some interesting times when sports games roll around. I was fortunate enough to marry my best friend over two years ago and I don't know what I'd do without him. I have a large, crazy, fun loving family that just loves to laugh. My parents are the strongest people I know. 

I have an older brother and sister, and a younger sister, who have blessed me with many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. I am nowhere near as old as the great nieces and nephews make me sound. I love to read and have wanted to be a writer since I was nine years old. 


JORDAN SUMMERS: Jordan Summers finished her first book in 2002. It was a finalist in the ‘Daphne Du Maurier’ contest the same year. She went on to sell eight fantasy books to Ellora’s Cave Publishing and has enjoyed success with her Atlantean’s Quest series and her Phantom Warriors.

In 2003, she entered the Lori Foster/ Kensington Brava contest and won the Reader’s Choice. The win led to a multi-book contract from Kensington Publishing. Jordan also won the Harlequin Blaze Published Author contest in 2005 and garnered another book deal. During the same year, she submitted a dark paranormal romance to Tor and landed a three-book deal. RED was the first book in her Dead World trilogy. It was followed by SCARLET and CRIMSON. She has gone on to sell stories to various anthologies, including the Horror Writer’s Association anthology, BLOOD LITE 2.

Jordan has twenty-nine published books to her credit and has sold over 120,000 ebooks. She is a member of Novelist Inc., International Thriller Writers, Horror Writer’s Association, and Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

Review: Sensual Surrender (The Serafina: Sin City #2) by Katie Reus

Posted on Monday, March 3, 2014 12:37 PM

“After everything we’ve been through together, I hope you know by now that there will never be anyone else for me. "- Jay

Sensual Surrender is the second book in the Serafina: Sin City Series. Katie Reus outdid herself. I loved the first book in the series but I fell in love with this one, I don't even know what my reaction will be regarding the third book in the series.

Elle is Wyatt's personal assistant. Those who have read the first book already know that their relationship was off the charts from the very beginning. They both cared for each other but none did something for it, until Jay had a terrible accident.

Jay works for Wyatt as a member of his security team and for The Serafina. He knows what his job entails and he's confident he can succeed. But Jay has a weakness, Elle.

Ellie has a secret. A secret that could cost her much. She has a hidden past that she'd kept from Jay, one that refuses to be buried any longer. When her past resurfaces she does the only thing she knows that will keep Jay safe, she runs. Jay knows something's wrong and he's determined to find out but will he be able to live with it???

I loved, loved, loved this book. Jay was an incredible hero, strong, determined, caring and above everything else a protector. Jay and Ellie had great chemistry and there's was a lot of action. Elle felt that she didn't deserve Jay but little did she know that for Jay, Elle was everything. They were such a loving couple. I can't say I agreed with some of her actions but knowing that everything she did, she did it with Jay in mind was what made me like her.

Although, it is a pretty short story it has a nice flow, filled with action, mystery and intrigue. I couldn't read it fast enough. The only thing that I hated was the length. It was too short (well that's not entirely true but for me every good romance seems short) I loved sooooo much Elle and Jay that I didn't want to leave them so soon!!!

Ellie: Right now I’m wearing that gray skirt suit you like so much.

Jay: You look like a naughty librarian in that thing.

Ellie: That’s why you like it so much?

Jay: I thought you knew.

Ellie: Tonight I’ll wear just the skirt and jacket.


I totally recommend this book and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Note: Although, this book is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone.
