Blurb:

When Callie Pierce turns 18 she has three very simple goals; avoid her stepfather, escape to an Ivy League university of her dreams and party with her friends. But on a night like any other, when the moon is full over the ocean, her life changes in a way that nobody ever sees coming.

On the sandy beaches of San Diego she meets Orion, a man with whom she cannot stay away, to whom her return becomes as inevitable as the tide kissing the shore. If that isn’t enough, a kiss which changes everything plunges Callie head first into a world of Mythic responsibility, epic danger and heart stopping romance.

The Mer, an ancient race of warriors brought forth to defend the seas, show her wonders beyond what is humanly possible, forcing her into an archaic chain of events that bring together power, seduction, violence and beauty in a terrifying yet exhilarating mix.

Then there’s The Banished to contend with, a group of Psirens, corrupted by the Oceans abyss, that stand to destroy the eternity Callie has been promised. Will she sacrifice herself for the greater good, or is the gravity that pulls her to Orion just too great to bear?

My Review:

This is one of the books from my 2017 TBR. The copy was gifted to me by the lovely author somewhere in autumn last year and I must apologize to her for the tardiness of my review. “The Kiss That Killed Me” is a book that … killed me! I loved it so much! Let me get into some of the items.

First of all, I think this is a fresh YA Fantasy series. Why? Because it has mermaids and demons. Yes, mermaids! I felt weird as well at first and started “writing” my own scenario. It didn’t work well because it exceeded my expectations on so many levels.

TKTKM_Q2

Since this is the first book in “The Tidal Kiss Trilogy”, it focuses a lot on world and character building. The Oculta Mirum is an amazing underwater world, where all mer live organized and as a strong community. The descriptions are so in detail, as if the author has really been there. It all felt real! It it’s beautiful!

Callie and Orion have an eternity to know each other, but throughout the chapters of book one, we see her integrate into his world, adapting to her new life and her new partner, her soul mate. They are incredible and beautiful in all their forms. He is overprotective and she is determined to prove she is strong enough to defend herself.

But this is not just about the worlds and characters. The tension increases gradually and explodes in the end. I devoured the final pages. Secrets are uncovered and even more that remain to be analyzed in the next books. We don’t have the rushed conclusion, the “snap” that usually happens in these books. Nope, it all happens at the right pace.

TKTKM_Q1

With all these amazing facts, I must say there are some scenes which did not stand well with me (for example when Callie’s mom blames her for the unhappy marriage she had… not nice), but this was nothing compared to what I felt in the other moments.

All things considered, I am compelled to give my 5 stars to a book that made me finish 80% in one day. Thank you again Kristy Nicolle for such a wonderful world! Moving on to the next books in the series… Happy Reading!

About the Author

Writing has always been an escape for me. I can imagine bizarre new worlds, create entirely new living species and dream up all kinds of odd and absurd scenarios. I love it, and always will do. Its my life. Even now, while preparing for to begin my Master’s degree in 21st century literature, I am always searching for fresh inspiration. I live in England, in the city of Lincoln but originally hail from Norwich. If I am not concocting up mad magical ideas, I am usually curled up in bed reading, modeling or adding to my vintage book collection. The power of the written word is marvelous, and I am continually finding myself learning, and exploring all its shadowy corners. I spend hours and hours combing through texts, books and words and quite frankly, it is exhausting.

oppressors who took over during the 2nd American Civil War have
called her much worse…
After years as an outcast, Jetta uncovers her true heritage as the daughter
of an African storm god and a Finnish death goddess. As she attempts
to harness her terrible new abilities to turn the tide in the war,

My Review

 

This was some book. It gave me so many mixed feelings. I wanted to hate it, to like it, to feel disappointed or in awe. The balance between the good things and the ones that I did not like is same as our main character, half-half. I will not dwell upon the story, as the blurb is very revealing. And to be honest, by the time I started reading it, I forgot what it was all about and dived right in blindly.

I was happy to discover an amazing character. The author has created a true heroine, one that does not shy away from responsibility, one that is brave enough to face an unfair world. The way her struggle of not belonging anywhere was described impressed me a lot. Even her tricks to try and fit in did not help. But she has always had a guide. Even after her grandmother passed away, she has found consolation in her spirit, always being there to remind her of her childhood stories about a god of storm and goddesses. Jetta evolves from innocent to warrior, a fighter for human rights.

The symbols behind “Girl Divided” are impressive as well. In a world where there is no grey, only black and white, pure and impure, Jetta is both. Jetta is the link between them. She will represent both parties. But will she be able to keep her good heart and her mind clear of darkness? In a world so judgmental, she is the savior.

While I loved all these aspects so much, I felt that the author took sides. The whites were to blame for this war, they were the bad party here. Also, the beginning was a little weird and I almost did not continue with it. Still, I decided to go ahead and I am happy to have done so.

All in all, Willow Rose is an exceptional writer. What she managed to create with this book is impressive and emotional. It will shatter your feelings, only to build up new ones. 4 stars and all may love to her for the amazing job she did with “Girl Divided”. It will for sure not be my last book written by her.

Note to my lovely readers:

We all have black and white inside us. We can be as good or as bad as we want. We can be as straight or …not straight as we please. As long as we respect each other, as long as we won’t lame our neighbors for the (ugly) music they play, we have our balance. Our soul is light and we must treat it lightly.

My Review

Seems that I’ve chosen the right book to start my “Harelquin Dare” reviews series. I was not disappointed at all and I liked Clare Connelly’s writing.   With fun parts, work ethics and lots and lots of (very) hot scenes, this book was great!

“Off Limits” is not the cute romance type of book at all. It is exactly as the title says: an off-limits relationship, as boundaries are broken, limits are crossed. Our main characters should not get involved. They work very well together, they form a perfect team at the office. She is his assistant, the first one to last that long and to accommodate to his character. But their attraction is stronger than the office stuff and once day Jack and Gemma cross that line. And once you are on the other side, you tend to stay there.

The author did a great job building the characters. Jack’s story is not a happy one and she reveals it step by step. I wanted to say he’s an idiot so many times, but then something from his pasts comes to light and … he’s all good. He’s afraid of commitments, although for a though guy like him it’s difficult to admit. She is ambitious, strong and with her legs down to earth, until he sends her emotions flying.  And here comes the part I was not very comfortable with. She knows very well he’s a player. She knows very well he’s not the relationship type of guy and he has major issues. However, she loses her balance very quickly in the book. I wanted to see more convincing from his part. Gemma becomes possessive and she’s not afraid to show it.

I loved each page of this book, it was a very easy read as it kept me right there with the characters. I am warning you, there are some explicit sex scenes in there, so be prepared for a great amount of heat. You might as well have your emotions in check.

I hope you’ll like it as well and stay around for my reviews for the other books in the “Harlequin Dare” pack. Read the Excerpt below for more convincing materials 🙂

 

Excerpt: Copyright © 2018 Off Limits by Clare Connelly

I am holding my breath again. Is that how I’m going to get over this little hurdle? Suffocate myself? Is that even possible? I’m pretty sure we have some breathing trigger in our brains, but my brain is a bit pissy with me so maybe it would conveniently forget about the button.

I push air out consciously, quietly, and he takes his seat.

‘Anyway…’ I prompt impatiently.

His smile is a clicker. Is he laughing at me? Arrogant arsehole! That’s be just like him. See? That’s the problem! I know him. I’m not one of his other women. I know that is he as bastardy as he is sexy.

‘How did you sleep?’

I blink at him, my eyes wide. ‘You’ve already asked me that.’

‘You didn’t answer.’

I except a sign that speaks of anger. ‘Like I always do. Seriously, Jack. My desk is covered in paper. I have to get to work.’

I’m your work,’ he says with a shrug.

Insolent bastard.

He leans forward, and while his face is casual there is an urgency in the flecks of gold that fill his eyes. ‘Did you see him last night?’

I want to remind him of the salient fact I pointed out the night before. It’s not his damned business. But I’m not sure I can say that with such conviction now that I’ve tasted his mouth; now that I’ve been stunned by his desire.

Can I skirt around his question?

You’re my work? Okay, the thing is I have the New York guys waiting on contracts, you have a meeting in a week that I have to prepare for and Athens wants your input-which means my input- on a lease agreement. And I need to – ‘

‘Quiet.’

God! Don’t hate me, but when he’s bossy I love it. And he’s almost always bossy.

I glare at him across his desk; it’s best if he doesn’t know that this is just about my favourite version of him.’

Book Review:  Should’ve Been You

About the book:should've been you

 

Title: Should’ve Been You (Man Enough #3)

Author: Nicole McLaughlin

Published: Published January 30th 2018 by Swerve

Source: Received from St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review

Format: e-copy

Blurb:

Childhood neighbors get a chance at love in Should’ve Been You, an achingly romantic novella in Nicole McLaughlin’s Man Enough series!

National Guardsman Jase Beckford wants to live a quiet life raising cattle and taking care of his mother. His childhood friend and neighbor Hannah is still his best friend, but when he walks into the Walters house one morning and sees her twin sister Becca for the first time in five years, he wonders if he missed out on something special.

Becca Walters has nursed a secret crush on Jase since childhood, but he always preferred Hannah, so she buried her feelings assuming her sister and Jase would one day turn their flirtation into a real relationship. And this Christmas, she is anticipating a proposal of her own, so Jase’s reappearance in her life doesn’t mean anything. Much. Okay, maybe more than Becca would like to admit.

However, when Becca’s sister gets engaged to someone who’s not Jase, Becca and Jase find themselves spending more together. And when secrets are revealed, suddenly those dormant feelings come back to life; but is the possibility of something between them worth risking the happiness of everyone they love?

Check it on: Amazon & Goodreads

My Review:

Ok, here we have yet another quick and funny read. I loved the book and the characters as well, even if I would have really wanted a little bit more development in that area.

Becca and Jase have always had a thing for each other. However, their relationship has not developed because of a “misunderstanding” from childhood. Hannah, Becca’s twin sister had wanted Jase’s attention so… she worked a little bit of evil magic let’s say.  So he has become Hannah’s best friend and even developed some kind of crush on her. When Becca returns to town, their feelings reenact. Will they be able to overcome the things that kept them apart? Will they make the right choice? That remains to be seen.

I liked the interactions between Becca and Jase and how the romance between them was developed. The author has put a lot of accent on it, but I feel that their relationship with Hannah could have been better explored, as this is the thing that kept them apart. Because the story is told from Jase and Becca’s perspective, we don’t get much of Hannah’s input. I have a feeling we’ll have it in the next book though.

Nicole McLaughlin has a writing style that is easy to follow and her books are perfect for a relaxing evening. I have nothing to complain from this point of view. The ending was a little rushed, in my opinion, I wanted to know more about the internal struggle the main characters had for being apart. I wanted to feel their determination.

All in all, I think this was a lovely book and my rating is 3.5 stars, with my congratulations to the author! I can’t wait to read Hannah’s story as it promises some very interesting angles. Happy reading 

My Review

Another great author discovered! I like it when this happens. Lindsey R. Loucks has done a wonderful job with this book. I loved how the characters were created, how they were shaped as a couple. Suffice to say, this was a book worth my time.

Page’s dream to become a librarian brought her living with her childhood friend and his brother. Yes, she lives with two guys. Sam’s attraction for Page started when they were kids, so imagine his reaction when seeing her. Still, as the blurb says, his past will come back for him. If or how will he manage to choose one path or another, remains to be seen in the pages of this lovely book.

The main characters are well developed. Page is determined to achieve her dream. She is always surrounded by books and always ready to start a conversation about them, which it was very easy to relate with her story (I even want to become a librarian myself!). Sam has his secrets and dark past. He will have to learn how to right his mistakes, or at least face them. Their relationship is built very nicely and the writing is exceptional to say the least!

Suffice to say I fell in love with this book and with Lindsey Loucks’ writing style. I’m sure I’ll read more titles by her. In the meantime, check out “Wicked Me” and I hope you’ll like it at least as much as I did. Happy Reading J

**On sale for .99 cents!!**
 

My Review

Let me start by saying that the heat level in this series is over the top! There are scenes that will blow your mind and twist your senses. Our main characters stay away from the real thing for most part of the story, but at the same time remain close enough to the flame to get burnt. After a brief explanation of the atmosphere, let’s see if there is anything else behind the hot parts.

Well…. Yes, but not as much as I would have expected. Patrick sees Annie and is quite captivated by the little maid, only to find out she is one of his best friends’ sister, this making her unavailable. Moreover, she is now under his protection, until said brother is found (details in the book). I liked the loyalty between these guys and the respect they have for their own private lives. I liked as well Annie’s wish to be independent and to work her way through life. She knows her boss is her brother’s best friend but she does not want any favors. The girl has dignity!

Still, I would have wanted more depth into the characters’ personalities. Also, the way they are instantly attracted to each other gave me the impression of being a little forced. I felt they were more driven by the scene they were watching, not the excitement of having seen one another. The overprotective nature of the guys around Annie was also exaggerated. I was waiting to see if the girl had anyone stocking her or if she was in the wrong kind of neighborhood. I would want to get away myself!

But all in all, this is a fun, quick read. I do advise you to read the entire series and as well as all other books by Ellis O. Day. She has a way with words and scenes that is off the charts! I liked it, 3.5 stars. Happy reading!

 
Ellis O. Day grew up with her nose buried in books and now enjoys writing
the kind of stories she loves to read. Romance—the steamier the
better. She believes that the cornerstones of all great romantic
relationships are: love and friendship, trust, attraction and
fabulous sex. Her stories contain all of these (especially the last
one).

Book Review: Silver Blood

Silverblood_banner

About the book:Silver Blood

 

Title: Silver Blood (Series of Blood #1)

Author: Emma Hamm

Published: October 1st 2016 by Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

Source: Received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Format: e-copy

Blurb:

Two hundred years ago, our world changed forever. Two realms combined in an explosion of magic. One morning everything was normal and the next? Every human body was host to another magical creature who had thoughts and a mind of its own. However, with power comes darkness. Someone wants to wipe this earth clean and will stop at nothing to consume it.

SHE IS NOT A HERO

Or so she thought. Wren had grown up with another voice in her head but had never considered herself magical. She doesn’t have the talents other people have. She certainly doesn’t have the abilities anyone else has. But she is charming and manages her business quite well. She deals in emotions and makes people happy. It’s a simple life, but it’s hers.

HE THINKS SHE COULD BE

Burke was a bodyguard first and always. He had been sent to collect her and deliver her in person to the most powerful creatures in their world. But the moment he steps through the broken door of her shop, his world changes forever. She’s strange. She’s uncomfortable. And she’s so damned beautiful. He is convinced she is part of a prophecy that can save their world.

But how to convince her?

My Review:

See what happens when you don’t read a book at its due time? You forget about it and then you beat yourself up when you realize how good it is. Well, it feels ten times worse if you have received it from the lovely author months (that turned into years) ago. As I always say, I try my best to keep up with all the book review requests I receive and it’s difficult to say no to all. I’ve been improving a lot since I started blogging and my focus now is to reduce the outstanding books I have until the year.

So before moving on with the review let me apologize to the author for this delay and I hope my review will help win her forgiveness.

In the year 2600, the End occurred. It wasn’t always known by this name, though some may have called it the Reckoning, the Apocalypse, or Judgement Day. Sadly, none of the expected endings of the world happened. There was no meteor, no nuclear war, and no environmental collapse.

“Silver Blood” creates such a wonderful world where magic and normal coexist – in one human being that is. It is such an original and interesting idea. Wren’s quiet life as a shop owner is shaken when she meets Burke in one of her sessions of Juice production. Juice is a valuable commodity in this world. Is like a drug that can induce different emotions, depending on what you’re buying. Burke is a dream walker and in his search for the one that may save the world, he find Wren. What happens from here is funny, gripping and complex.

Until close to the end, Wren is a mystery when it comes to the magical creature that lives inside her. She and E live in a perfect union. E is her best friend, protector and guide. I loved their relationship so much and it made more sense in the end, when E’s nature is revealed. I appreciated how the romance was built as well, no instant attraction, no “I loved you from the start” stuff. Just a gradual increase of affection that is proven throughout the pages.

I like being alive, but being dead might be an interesting adventure as well.

I have some issues with the other characters in the book, as I did not quite understand their background that well, but I believe that later in the series it will all make more sense. Also, I think some of the elements in the ending were a little rushed, but all is well.

This was such an amazing, refreshing and original story and I am confident that the other books in the series are even better. Books 2-4 are already out and they follow Lyra, Jasper and Pitch, all of whom are a mystery in “Silver Blood”. I hope you’ll like it at least as much as I did, because Emma Hamm is an amazing writer! Happy Reading!

About the AuthorEmma Hamm

I am from a very small rural town in Maine. I grew up amid blueberry fields, a farm full of animals, and surrounded by family. It was one of the best ways for a child to grow up. Horses blew puffs of sweet smelling breath in my hair, goats teased me until I giggled, and someone who loved me was always there to pick me up when I fell. I am truly blessed to have grown up in such a fashion.

The love of creative story telling started when I was very young. I used to “act out” the way a story should have gone and argued with my mother constantly about the endings of movies. I wrote a little bit, and eventually found myself in the online writing community. My love of characters blossomed and grew thanks to the ever vigilant parents who convinced me that imagination was one of the greatest gifts of the human mind. I wrote, I created, I read as many books as I could next to the fireplace.

I am inspired by the works of authors like Clive Barker, Mark Danielewski, Patricia Briggs, Clare B. Dunkle, and so many more.

Thank you all for your support, love, and kindness.
