Review: Dust by Devon Ashley

Author: Devon Ashley
Series: Of Dust and Darkness #1

4. The number of times my delicate wings have been broken and clamped behind my back.
68. The number inked upon my skin, marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen.
87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned.
88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me.

It started with how a pixie looks and lives. There was absolutely enough background and it was a very detailed start and just you thought that okay it's just a regular book BOOM it got action and then it never stopped. I finished the book in a breath. It was really well written and well defined. Ashley creates a world before your eyes. As I read the book I felt the girl's love, lust, relief, pain, anger, desperation everything. It was so well written it made me feel directly inside the book. And you know you love a book you can relate to. It was full with well definitons so you can directly picture it. It was a fascinating journey. I just felt like some things stayed on the air at the end. But I guess that's to keep us wondering untill the next book. Even the back of the book pulls you to it. It just picked my interest so much even before I began reading. It was a great read.
Would I recommend it? Hell yes.
Would I continue the series? The only reason I haven't got the second book is that it is not written yet.
Would I read more from this author? Definitely.

Blitz: Sex. Love. Repeat by Alessandra Torre

Author: Alessandra Torre
Publication date: December 1st 2013
Genres: Erotica, Romance

I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they don’t need to know anything but that they are not alone in my heart.

They have accepted the situation. Stewart, because his life is too busy for the sort of obligations that are required in a relationship. Paul, because he loves me too much to tell me no. And because my sexual appetite is such that one man has trouble keeping up.

So we exist, two parallel relationships, each running their own course, with no need for intersection or conflict. It works for us, for them, and for me. I don’t expect it to be a long-term situation. I know there is an expiration date on the easy perfection of our lives.

I should have paid more attention, should have looked around and noticed the woman who watched it all. She sat in the background and waited, tried to figure me out. Saw my two relationships, the love between us, and the moment that it all fell apart.

She hates me.
I don’t even know she exists.
She loves them. I love them.
And they love me.

EVERYTHING else hangs in the balance.

Review: Memory's Wake by Selina Fenech

Memory’s Wake 

Author: Selina Fenech
Series: (Memory’s Wake Trilogy #1)
Publication date: June 16th 2011
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Lost in a world full of monstrous fairies, a troubled sixteen year old has to find out who she is and why her memories were stolen before she is found by those who want her dead.

She takes the name “Memory” and knows she has just one goal – to find her way home, wherever that is. But this land is strange. No technology to be seen, and iron is banned, thanks to a pact the humans have with the magical creatures who share their pre-industrial era world. In her t-shirt and torn jeans, Memory knows she’s different, even before she performs impossible magic.

Haunted by her past, chased by a dragon, wanted by the king and stalked by the strange, handsome savage that seems to know her, everyone is after Memory, and she suspects it’s not just for her eye-catching outfit. Her forgotten past holds dangerous secrets that will challenge everything she believes and risk the lives of everyone she loves.

Memory’s Wake contains over 45 illustrations by the author and artist.

I relly liked the suspense and the mystery surrounding the story. I was constantly wondering and instead of the answers I was searching for I was constantly being suprised with answers for the questions I haven't even thought of before. It was definitely a good read and I will admit that I enjoyed the illustrations a little too much. They were seriously well drawn and let me tell you the boys are hot and Memory is geourgeous. I waited eagerly for each illustration to come. I finished the book in one day and it worth my time. So go read it. :)

The Red Sector Chronicles by Krystle Jones

The Red Sector Chronicles

Author: Krystle Jones
Genres: Dystopia, Paranormal Romance, Young Adult

The strength of Sloane’s heart is about to be put to the ultimate test.
After the Eclipse – the night vampires began openly slaughtering human victims – everything changed. Out of fear, the government salvaged what remained of the human population and enclosed them in massive, security-laden cities called White Sectors, while marking the vampire infested territory as Red Sectors.

When seventeen-year-old Sloane McAllister’s twin brother disappears, she seems to be the only one who thinks he isn’t dead, and she vows to stop at nothing to find him. Gathering her courage, she braves the Red Sector to search for clues to his whereabouts. By chance, she encounters Aden, a handsome, charismatic vampire with a hidden agenda. He turns Sloane against her will and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life.

But the vampires themselves are the least of her problems. A war is brewing between the humans and vampires, along with a growing web of deceit and betrayal. And before it’s all over, loyalties will be tested, hearts will be broken, and no one’s lives will ever be the same.

Review: Fall of Darkness by Elle Bright

Title: Fall of Darkness
Author: Elle Bright
Series: The Darkness Chronicles #1
Publication: July 5th, 2013
Category: Adult
Genre: Paranormal Romance

One woman, the fate of the world in her unknowing hands. One man, sworn to destroy her. A love so strong it defies nature. In a world of obsession, deception and betrayal, the line between good and evil fades, but one truth remains absolute. Darkness must fall.

For centuries, werewolf, Dominic Ridolfi, has battled the demons of the night, upholding the sacred pact to protect man from vampires. Yet when sent to destroy the long lost Cacciatori heiress, the vampire prophesied to free her kind from the curse of darkness, he finds himself reluctant to complete his task. The innocent beauty awakens his humanity and Dominic finds himself not in the role of assassin, but savior.

Swept away in a whirlwind romance, Kate loses herself in Dominic’s mysterious world of opulence and seduction. But Dominic has a secret. He knows the truth about Kate’s past, and her future, truths with the power to destroy them both. Only in her dreams does Kate sense the growing darkness within. Dominic saved her once, but can she save herself from the darkness within?

 What would you do if you were in love with the enemy... madly? That's actually an old story right. But what would you do if the enemy was sent to kill you in the first place and you were destined to bring the end for all of them. First of all I wish that there was more descriptions for the characters. Because after more than 300 pages it is still hard for me to imagine Dominic. The book ended like it was cut in half there is lots of unanswered questions so it kinda ticked me off. I like to have all my answers when I finish a book. But I must admit that there was good background info. It was deffinetly sufficent. You might read it but I'm not saying that you should. It was a normal read.

Rating: 4/5

 Think about a girl from our world finding herself in a diffrent world with diffrent rules and no memories. What would you do? Well it's a story filled with mystery, imagination and wonder. I mean you keep wondering the truths, what's going to happen also try to get to know characters. I must admit that I find the subject refreshing after reading like 3 books which are replikas of each other. Just as I started to get bored of this genre I found something good again. Also very finely drawn illustrations adds to it even though most of the time I prefer to imagine the characters myself this time I think it helped me to visualize the story more firmly. So if you like hotties you can see more than imagine and a diffrent story than what's main stream here's your call. Go and enjoy it.

Book Blitz: Jenny's Blue Velvet by Angela Carlie

Author: Angela Carlie
Publication date: August 22nd 2013
Genre: Adult Romantic Thriller

Jenny’s stuck.

She’s tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let’s just say it’s been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover’s Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.

Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She’ll be a best seller in no time.

When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she’s writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.

Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

JENNY’S BLUE VELVET is a dark, humorous, romantic thriller for adults only

About the Author

Facts about Angela Carlie

I write fiction. I work hard. I play often.

When I'm not pushing a mouse around at a desk job, which is boring, or writing, which is fun, I enjoy hanging out with my fourteen-year-old son and husband, reading, hiking, kayaking, traveling, and running.

Hawaii and Washington are my two favorite states.

I believe that if everyone ate a whole-food plant based diet, cancer cases would be a minimum, heart disease a thing of the past, and hunger something found in history books.

One of my favorite documentaries is Forks Over Knives.

I love hearing about people reading my books, so if you enjoyed one of my stories, please let me know by leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Thank you for spending time with my stories. We don't have much of it and I appreciate that you find my work worthy of your time.

The Boy Next Door
by the NAturals
When your Friday afternoon plans involve being crammed in a half-squat between hanging shirts and pants while stark-freaking-naked, it’s time to reevaluate your life. And I was going to do just that as soon as Derek rescued me from the closet. It had occurred to me before that dating a guy who still lived at home was going to be a problem, but it was hard to be choosy when nearly every guy my age had already taken off to college. I was on the delayed-start plan myself, trying to save up enough money by working temporary and part-time jobs to go away next year. That’s how I’d met Derek and wound up naked in his closet. I had a knack for situations like this. “Make sure you water the rhododendrons every afternoon or they’ll die, and do it today, please.” His mother had been listing all the chores she needed done when she left on her Alaskan cruise in the morning. So far she’d been here for what felt to be an hour. I didn’t actually have a watch. Hello, naked. But I had a cramp in my thigh that was getting worse by the minute, and it felt like I’d achieved a level sixty in discomfort. “And no overnight visitors,” she finished. “Of course, Mom,” Derek said. “Especially not that Natalie girl. I don’t think she’s a good influence.”

Review: Welcome to the Darkness by L.M. Justus

 Welcome to the Darkness

Author: L.M. Justus
Series: Darkness Trilogy, #1
Publication date: August 5th 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal
A typical teenager, seventeen-year-old Reed Hennessy doesn’t realize how lucky he is to lead a normal life until he loses everything, including his humanity. The attacker who slaughters his family and destroys their home turns out to be a vampire, a creature Reed had considered a myth.

Now a vampire himself, but with the unique ability to walk in sunlight, Reed struggles in the dark underworld he didn’t even know existed. His only two allies in his fight to stay alive are his reluctant mentor, Nathaniel, a vampire with over two hundred years’ worth of emotional baggage, and Sarah, a rookie cop with a secret ability of her own.

Together, Reed and his companions face a harrowing, cross-country journey before stumbling into a plot which could mean the end of everything for humans and vampires alike.

Well as an unoffical expert on vampire themed everything especially books. There was nothing out of ordinary. I am not saying that it was bad, just that it wasn't good either. It was so so-so that I cannot describe it completely. The characthers were not shallow but they were not deep also. The problems they encountered were way too easy to solve so it seemed like nothing happened. I believe that for a book to be exciting the writer has to outsmart us. The story has to be clever and it has to keep us wondering. It has to keep us on our toes. It has to be full of suprises. It has to be just like love. Well this wasn't. It was a light read nothing unexcaptable. If you have time you may read it.

Review: Frontline by Alexandra Richland


Author: Alexandra Richland
Release Date: August 6, 2013
Genre: Mystery/Contemporary Romance
Cover designed by: F.S. Meurinne ( E-mail:

When nurse Sara Peters treats celebrity billionaire Trenton Merrick for a mysterious injury to his forehead, she is blindsided by what follows: A passionate exchange in the examination room, followed by an invitation to Trenton's mansion the next night. 

Trenton spins a web of deceit and seduction around Sara that both repels and attracts her. One part humanitarian, the other international financial mogul, his professional and public life are a curious contradiction. As Sara journeys deeper into her feelings for Trenton and begins unraveling the mystery behind his injury, she finds herself embroiled in a game of trust and betrayal, where the odds are stacked in Trenton's favor, and the outcome for the loser is too terrifying to conceive.

First of all I admit that I love a man with determination. A man who knows what he wants and does what it takes to get it. So this is a romance threaded with adventure and mystery. It is so well written that it gets you excited it makes you wonder it makes you read more. I finished it in 2 days and believe me it was hard to give a break to it. I really love the heroine who doesn't fall in love in the first two pages. Desire okay, but love is not that easy. It was definitely well written. Only thing that I didn't like is that she has two best friends he has two best friends and perfectly they like each other too. Come on if it was real life they would be probably hating each other or fighting for the same guy or girl. It was like a child's dream. But it was just a little distraction on my side. Would I read more from this author? Yes, definitely. Would I continue this series? Another yes, after the prequel of the sequel it made me want to read it right away.
