No Kissing Allowed: Review

From Goodreads:
No kissing. No touching. And definitely no falling in love...

Armed with her besties, an embarrassing number of shots, and her list of 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, recent grad Cameron Lawson is partying it up before she starts her dream job at New York's biggest ad agency. Her last task? Hook up with a random guy. And while it's so not her style, the super-sexy guy sitting next to her is definitely game. No names. No details. 

At least, that was the plan.

On her first day of work, Cameron discovers her hook-up is none other than Aidan Truitt—her new boss's boss. Talk about failing the "no fraternizing with coworkers" policy on an epic level. Especially when Aidan makes it clear their one night was only the beginning. Falling for him could cost her everything, but sometimes the only way to get what you want is by breaking a few rules... 

My Review:
It was just really fantastic to read this book! I've enjoyed previous Melissa West books before, but those were YA, and this was NA, and sometimes the genre jump doesn't always work. Worked in this case, because this was such a great book!

There are only so many ways a romance novel can go. What separates each book from the others, is the characters, who they are, what they get into, that sort of thing. And I really enjoyed reading about Cameron and Aidan! So cute!

I really enjoyed Cameron, she who had to win, who lost her dad, is claustrophobic, and it's a combination of those elements that lead to her relationship with Aidan, from their initial meeting, to sharing their stories with each other. Just so great!

That ending, that was just so sweet! That they created that for themselves, and then that phone call that she had with him, that was just too cute! Very sweet and wonderful, and it made for a perfect ending to this fantastic book!

I enjoyed reading this book so much, it was just a delight and pleasure to read!

Waiting on Wednesday #221, July 29th

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
Expected Publication: September 1st, 2015
From Goodreads:
Sarah J. Maas's New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series reaches new heights in this sweeping fourth volume.

Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past . . .

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.

Celaena’s epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena’s story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world. 


Firewalker by Josephine Angelini
Expected Publication: September 1st, 2015
From Goodreads:
Worlds divide, magic slays, and love lies in the second book of Josephine Angelini’s The Worldwalker Trilogy.

"You think I’m a monster, but my choices, as ruthless as they seem, are justified."

Lily is back in her own universe, and she's ready to start a new life with Rowan by her side. True, she almost died in the Pyre that fueled their escape from New Salem, and must hide her magic for the safety of everyone she cares about, but compared to fighting the Woven, the monstrous creatures inhabiting the alternate Salem, life is looking pretty good.

Unfortunately, Lillian, ruthless ruler of the 13 Cities, is not willing to let Lily go that easily. If she can’t persuade Lily to return to her world, she will force her to come back by doing away with the ones she loves.

Picking up right where Trial By Fire left off, Firewalker is another sexy, fast-paced, heartbreaking thrill ride from internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini! 


The Fate of Ten by Pittacus Lore
Expected Publication: September 1st, 2015
From Goodreads:
The sixth book in the thrilling, action-packed, New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series! For years the Garde have fought the Mogadorians in secret. Now all of that has changed. The invasion has begun. If the Garde can't find a way to stop the Mogs, humanity will suffer the same fate as the Lorien: annihilation.

There is still hope. When the Elders sent the Garde to Earth, they had a plan—one which the Garde are finally starting to understand. In the climax of The Revenge of Seven, a group of the Garde traveled to an ancient pyramid in Mexico known to their people as the Sanctuary. There they awoke a power that had been hidden within our planet for generations. Now this power can save the world . . . or destroy it. It will all depend on who wields it. 

Oh, man, these books, I just really want to read these books so much! They look so freaking fantastic! What about you guys? Happy reading!

We Have the Title of The Malediction Trilogy #3!!!!

Every Choice: Review

From Goodreads:
Red.
Red is everywhere.
Not just red, blood.
Blood is everywhere.
It is all over me.

Cassie Whitlock has relived that day countless times in her dreams for the past four years. It left more than just physical scars, it has caused her to close herself off to everyone. She no longer believes in love. Love only ends in pain. 

That's why when she meets Luca, she is surprised by the immediate and undeniable attraction between them. She doesn't want complicated and she knows he's about to make everything complicated. As their lives become more intertwined, it becomes harder to hide her secrets, and harder to resist him, but when she discovers he has secrets of his own, she begins to question everything. Cassie has to make a choice: hold on to the ghosts of her past or be brave enough to imagine a future.

My Review:
I enjoyed reading this book. I do wish that I'd read it a bit sooner, or a bit later then I did, because the pain from having my wisdom teeth removed, and everything that came with that, effected my reading experience. Didn't effect how much I enjoyed the book, though!

I really enjoyed Cassie and Luca together. They both have their secrets, they both have something by this relationship-but they both have something to gain, and that gain is what triumphed in the end, which was really great!

Yes, their secrets were pretty hard to bear. Who would want to go through things that hurt, even if in the end, it leads to one of the best things in your life? For her, the attack. For him, the lost love. Either way, pain. But then they got each other!

Really fantastic ending, it was rocky there for a bit, but they made it through it, together, once they realized (well, she realized) that they were better together than apart! Really nice to read, and I enjoyed that so much!

Such a fantastic book, and able to read as a stand alone (since I haven't read the first book) and yeah, I enjoyed it a lot!

Week 30 Reviews: Overkill, Eternal Rider


From Goodreads:
Free short stories to update readers on the lives of the Demonica characters.

Wraith and Serena
Tayla and Eidolon - the scene takes place between Sin Undone and Eternal Rider
Kaden and Andrea - these two chapters are included in the ebook version of Eternity Embraced, but are not in the print short story found in The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2: Love Bites
Luc and Kar - this scene takes place eight months after the events of Sin Undone
Shade and Runa - this scene takes place between Rogue Rider and Reaver

Reaver - his scene takes place between Rogue Rider and Reaver

From Goodreads:
They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

His name is Ares, and the fate of mankind rests on his powerful shoulders. If he falls to the forces of evil, the world falls too. As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he is far stronger than any mortal, but even he cannot fight his destiny forever. Not when his own brother plots against him. 

Yet there is one last hope. Gifted in a way other humans can't-or won't-understand, Cara Thornhart is the key to both this Horseman's safety and his doom. But involving Cara will prove treacherous, even beyond the maddening, dangerous desire that seizes them the moment they meet. For staving off eternal darkness could have a staggering cost: Cara's life.

My Review:
I enjoyed reading these books so much! The short scenes of couples that we've gotten to know, little insights into their lives after their main story is over (though they still have things to do, which is kinda the point of them!) And then Eternal Rider, the first book of the Lords of Deliverance series! So awesome!

I really enjoyed the updates into the lives of the couples that we've grown to know and love. That was just really fantastic and just so enjoyable, having these events that hey, life goes on, and even though we've seen them in books after their own, these scenes were focused on them, so that was great!

Eternal Rider, oh, man, what a kick off to the series-within-the-series! Such a great beginning, I really enjoyed reading about Ares and Cora's relationship, what with Hal, and the fact of his seal, and her death would cause his seal to break, which would be really sucky!

The way that that things all came together for that ending, that was pretty fantastic! Very smart, and just so entertaining to read it! Just makes me want to read the next book all the more, and so glad that I can do so soon, seeing as this is the end of my week!

Such great things to read, I just enjoyed them so much! And now to read the next book(s) in the series!

Week 30 Review: The Stars Never Rise

From Goodreads:
Sixteen-year-old Nina Kane should be worrying about her immortal soul, but she's too busy trying to actually survive. Her town's population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.

When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she'll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie's sin has put her in serious trouble.

To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?

Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can't survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.

My Review:
This was such a fantastic book! I wasn't planning on reading it, but then I saw it on my list of recently added to my nook books when I was looking for something to read, and I thought, yeah, I should read this. And I'm so glad that I did, because this was such a fantastic book!

One thing about me, is that I get anxious energy over unfairness. Which this book had in spades, which means that I was basically bouncing off the walls, because there was so much that was wrong in this world, and there was nothing I could do about it!

I really enjoyed Nina! She was so practical, like the line in the synopsis of her priorities of her immortal soul and survival. It made it stronger, I think, and better equipped to deal with everything that happened in this book!

And oh, did things happen in this book! So many twists and turns, like Finn, like the Church! I enjoyed reading all of that so much! And that there's the seeds for the next book, the demons that want to kill off humans, well, I can't wait to read about that!

This was just such a fantastic book, and now I really can't wait for The Flame Never Dies, it's going to be so fantastic!

Week 30 Review: Earth Bound

From Goodreads:
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Air Bound returns to the mysterious coastal town of Sea Haven where six sisters of the heart are bound by the elements, and one is stalked by an inescapable past…

After escaping from a cult, Lexi found refuge with her sisters on the farm that more than sustained her body—it nurtured her soul as well. But she never forgot the terror she left behind or the always present fear that the cult would find her again, and claim her. Then her nightmare came true.

Lexi was discovered and threatened—only to be suddenly saved by a stranger. He is Gavriil Prakenskii, and he's awestruck by the woman he's rescued. She is destined for him. He can feel it in his soul. But how can Lexi find happiness with a man steeped in secrets and shadows, one intimately acquainted with violence, and whose very love could be the death of them?

My Review:
Oh, I enjoyed this book so much! Reading it was much faster then Air Bound, and I think that's because of what Lexi went through, that made me want to read faster so I could get to her happy ending! Plus, her and Gavriil were a pretty great couple!

I didn't catch the first time that Reverend RJ was mentioned, well, Reverend, but not RJ. So I was thinking about it, and that he might be the leader of the cult that did this to Lexi. And then went back and reread the beginning, and caught it, so I was right! Makes me so glad that he met the end that he did in Hidden Currents!

Lexi went through a lot. I kinda wish that Caine had had his ending with a bit more page time, because he did pretty horrible things to her, and I wanted him to suffer a bit more, well, suffer where I could read about it, not after-the-fact mentionings!

That one scene, where Gavriil goes to Ilya's house, that was just so cute! I enjoyed reading that so much, of having the second oldest brother (because we finally got the birth order of he Prakenskii's brothers!) meeting the youngest for the first time since their parents were killed and they were separated! So great! And then of course there was action, which was just so great!

Favourite lines: "'Letting you get to know what an all-around great prize you're getting. I come with an arsenal, two killer dogs and skills on my resume few others can ever claim.' 'You're impossible, do you know that? I'll bet no one else knows you have a sense of humor.' 'It's been such a well-kept secret, so much so, even I didn't know.'" Well, now the both of them know now! Yeah!

Such a great and fantastic book, now I can't wait for Fire Bound, and Blythe's book!

Week 30 Review: The Escape

From Goodreads:
When two boys walk into the woods, and one comes out covered in blood, what would you believe?

Fletcher and Adam venture into the woods for an afternoon hike, but when day turns into night and neither boy returns, their town is thrown into turmoil. Avery, the detective's daughter, is the one to find Fletcher—dishelved, disoriented, and covered in blood. He has no memory of what happened, but Avery can't shake the feeling that something's off. When Adam's body is finally found, Avery is determined to uncover the truth. But if she stands by her gut, and Fletcher, is she standing by a friend, or a murderer? The answer might cost her her life. 

My Review:
This was such a great book! So interesting, and such a great mystery, and just more proof that Hannah Jayne is a really fantastic author-an author that I really need to read more of, like, all of her books more of!

I really enjoyed the back and forth narration of Avery and Fletcher, they were really interesting to read about! Avery, who lost her mom to a car accident and who's dad is the chief of police. Fletcher, who went through this whole thing. So great!

The mystery was pretty awesome! I actually read the ending, so I knew what was going on, so while I was reading it, I found the clues that lead to that ending, and man, they were there, and they were small, and they were so great!

That ending, oh! It was kinda sad, that that was the way that things turned out. It's not a really happy ending, they caught the bad guy, but who the bad guy was? Yeah, that who situation was sad! And pretty horrible for everyone to go through!

Such a fantastic book-I enjoyed it so, so much!

Week 30 Review: Superheroes Anonymous

From Goodreads:
Everybody in Chicago has a "superhero sighting" story. So when a villain attacks editorial assistant Gail Godwin and she's rescued by superhero Blaze, it's a great story, and nothing more. Until it happens again. And again. 

Now, the media has dubbed her Hostage Girl, nobody remembers her real name, and people are convinced that Blaze is just Gail's boyfriend Jeremy in disguise. Gail's not so sure. All she knows is that when both Jeremy and Blaze leave town in the same week, she's probably doomed. Who will save her now?

But when the villains miraculously lose interest, Gail is able to return to her life…until she wakes up strapped to a metal table by a mad scientist who hasn't read the news. Escaping, and now more than human herself, she's drawn into a secret underground world of superheroes. She'll have to come to terms with her powers (and weakness) to make it in the new society, and it's not easy. After all, there’s a new villain on the rise, and she has her sights set on the one and only Hostage Girl.

My Review:
This was such a fantastic book! It was fun, and interesting, and just so easy to read! The pages just flew by, I was just totally submersed in reading this book-I couldn't have enough! And I'm so glad that it's a series, because we get more! Yeah!

So from the synopsis, I knew that this would be a very awesome book. And it delivered that, I just loved reading about Gail, and how people call her Girl, short for Hostage Girl, because they've forgotten her real name. And things she gets into, not fun for her, but so fun to read about!

Her and Guy, that was just so cute and funny! We know/knew that there's something romantic brewing between them, but they didn't really notice it as much themselves, well, we know that Gail didn't, really, can't speak for Gus!

And that ending! Oh, man, that was an evil cliffhanger! And it leaves us with tons of questions. How is she going to deal with being arrested? And some less pressing, but still interesting questions, is she going to be cured of the cancer? And the story about Guy and Sam's sister, we need to learn it!

Yeah, this was such a fantastic, funny, amazing book, and now I just really want to read it (though, by the time this posts, I will have read it, and loved it, I know it, since I have a booked review post of the 2nd book on the 20th!)

Week 30 Review: Bounce

From Goodreads:
Playing the occasional club gig just isn't cutting it for twenty-two-year-old cellist Skyler Canby, who's trying to support herself and her mother back home in Kentucky. Persuaded by her best friend Beth to accompany her on an audition for the first feature film launched by Blackwood Entertainment, she figures why not? Beth's a shoe-in for the lead, but maybe Skyler's newly dyed pink hair will help her stand out enough to score a small speaking part.

Never in her wildest dreams does Skyler imagine she'll land the lead role or that she'll have her shoes knocked off her feet by the kiss her audition partner, Grey Blackwood, plants on her—a kiss that feels very real and not at all "acted."

After throwing a party that causes thousands of dollars of damage to his older brother's home, reckless musician Grey Blackwood gets roped into working off his debt on the set of his CEO brother's newest project. Grey spends his days fetching coffee and doing odd jobs around the studio, but he lives for nights when he performs with his band. He knows if he can stay focused, success as a singer is just around the corner. But that's tough with a distracting pink-haired girl occupying his every waking thought. 

Skyler and Grey have every reason to resist each other. But, like a song neither of them can get out of their minds, they have no choice but to go where the music takes them.

My Review:
This was such a fantastic book! I enjoyed reading it so much, it was the fantastic ending of a series that I've enjoyed so much, it's been so fun and entertaining, and I just have loved the relationships that have bloomed in this series!

This was Grey and Sky's book, and I really enjoyed reading about them! We haven't really gotten to know them in the past two books, but this was their time to shine, and I just enjoyed learning so much about them!

For Sky, the journey was all about her parents, and how she's a musician, but she landed an acting gig as the leading lady, which lead to some unhealthy choices. And I knew where it was going, so when it happened, it was a bit of a relief-now she knew, and now she would get better.

For Grey, it was about the fact that he either avoids, or he destroys. From his relationship with his (step)mom, Adam, and Sky, he avoids. And he learns to deal with that, which was really awesome to watch. Well, that, along with his relationship with Sky!

Such a fantastic book, and I enjoyed it so much! It had such a great, awesome ending that was just the whole series condensed into the scene, I just loved it!
