My Teaser: 
So, yet again I am continuing A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness and thought that I've already done a lot of teaser with that one so wanted to come up with something else.  Therefore I decided to do a teaser, like I've done before, from a story on Goodreads that I am writing with Stephanie over at Bookfever.  Here it is: 
. She was so exhausted. When she lay in bed she felt the dog's wet nose against her cheek. "Goodnight, doggie," she yawned.It didn&…

This weeks cover: 
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-…

Review "Twice Tempted"

Image
Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) by Jeaniene Frost
Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges...
Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.
Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity...
Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity.My rating: 
So, I love Jeanie…

My rating: 
By the Angel... I can't believe this is the end...  Starting this book, I was so emoitonal I wanted to cry, but I got through it! After finishing it I just wanted to pick up the first book and start all over with the series. It's so sad when a good series come to an end even though you know it will happen. E…

Review "Tainted Love"

Image
Tainted Love by Eva Márquez
“My name is Isabel Cruz, and I’m nineteen years old, almost twenty. I go to Lincoln University where I’m majoring in English. I’m a straight-A student, and I know what I’m doing with my life, but things weren’t always that way. Or rather, I’ve always known what I wanted, and it just hasn’t always gone along with society’s views. In high school, I had an affair with my swim coach. I wanted him, and I took what I wanted. We were together until I graduated, but he had a wife and kids, and I left him behind to come here. I left everything behind to come here. At least that’s what I thought.”
Isabel was never like the other girls at her school in the sleepy town of Hillside, California. At sixteen she fell in love with Tom, a married swim coach at Royal Oaks High School; their exhilarating and sultry affair continuing in secret for several years. Finally, Isabel realized that her own future had to come first, but even after relocating to Washington, D.C. to study …

My Teaser: 
(Took a long one)


I stared at the telephone, horrified. Maybe Marcus did have a silent
alarm in his office that alerted a security company? Maybe the security
company called his cell phone if his office door was opened when he was not
home? Was Marcus calling to find out what was going on? I didn’t know if
any of the phones in the rest of the house were ringing. What if this line only
came into the office? Had we been discovered? My heart was racing and I
tasted that all-too-fami…

Review "Sweetest Taboo"

Image
Sweetest Taboo by Eva Márquez
Isabel Cruz was fifteen years old when she met Tom Stevens. She was 15 when they started dating, and 16 when she lost her virginity to him. By the time she turned 18 and went to college, everything had fallen apart.
This hadn’t been an ordinary love, though. Not a love between two dear friends, or even high school sweethearts. This had been the most taboo sort of love there was: a relationship between a student and her teacher. Isabel started her high school career as a normal student, but set her sights on Tom Stevens as soon as she met him, and pursued him with an intense – and sometimes reckless – fascination. When he finally approached her after swim practice and told her that he shared her feelings, it was the start of a forbidden and dangerous relationship.
Join Isabel as she makes her way through this dark love story, hiding from teachers, lying to her parents, and defying the authorities to make a life with the man she loves. Watch as she discovers t…

Review Opal

Image
Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout. 
No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

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 hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. 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.

Together we’re stronger... and they know it
