Shadowflesh

Shadowflesh

By: Shawn Martin

Synopsis Via Goodreads

 

Torn from her home and fighting bouts of suicidal depression, seventeen-year-old Aileen McCormick lands in the small coastal town of Redcliff, North Carolina. Her first day of school promises to be the worst day of her life when a menacing group of boys targets the new girl. A stiff arm shoves Aileen into the arms of Addison Wake. When he catches her, Aileen knows she will never be the same. Addison’s otherworldly charm and drop-dead gorgeous face leave her breathless, but only for a moment. Grim and painful secrets lurk in his dark soul.

Addison Wake isn’t exactly like other boys. Far from it. He’s dead and has been for 300 years, locked in an ethereal prison by a lethal enchantress named Donelle. When she hungers, she blesses Addison’s tortured spirit with moments of freedom, allowing him to roam the mortal world as Shadowflesh. But that dark blessing comes at a price. He must deliver the souls of five unsuspecting humans to Donelle.

Knowing he’s here only for a short amount of time, Addison refuses to let himself fall in love and break Aileen’s already fractured heart. He pushes her into the arms of another, but destiny throws the two shadowy lovers back together. In the darkness of her room, Addison confesses his love and his deadly secret to Aileen.

When four dead bodies pop up in Redcliff, Aileen asks herself is her love for the mysterious boy unconditional? Is the love worth the risk? And will she be the next victim?

My Review:

This is a spooky, Gothic kind of romance that just might never end up as a happy ending. This is the beginning of a series that I think will do very very well! There’s just enough action, and romance, angst and danger to make it interesting. The flow to this book is fantastic also, its one of those… “I have to go to bed! But no you must read another chapter!!!”  Kind of books. The characters were very well developed and were full of personality, the conflict in this story was also very well developed and is an actual conflict, not one of those pretend ones that make you shake your head. And the romance of this book, it’s one of those forbidden romances. It’s quite breathtaking.  Over all I am quite looking forward to continuing this series to see where the story plays out! There is a whole world of potential with this series! So exciting!

ForgetMeNot 453x680Forget Me Not
by Shawn Martin

Synopsis Via Good Reads

Ever since Addison came back to Aileen, her have been brighter and life is sweeter. Until a mysterious man slips a spellbinding cameo around her neck, a cameo that strangles memories. Aileen is left with not the faintest notion who Addison is.

Addison, a three hundred year old fugitive from the netherworld taking the form of Shadowflesh, recognizes the cameo and the curse cast upon his unsuspecting love. But he knows breaking the curse, which may bring back her memories, will cost Aileen her life. To love her means to let her go.

But Aileen can’t take her eyes off the stranger who keeps ignoring her. The stranger who pushes her into the arms of another.

Geoff, who has waited oh, so long for Aileen, tries to sweep her off her feet at the Christmas masquerade ball. But a serendipitous moment lands Aileen back together with Addison. One passionate kiss later, she knows beyond a shadow of doubt that she loves Addison, the icy stranger with smoky blue eyes.

Remembering comes at too high a price though. Aileen must run for her life with the curse only a breath away

 

My Review

 

I was given this book in exchange for an Honest review by the Author Shawn Martin and Bostick Communications.

First off I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to read this book. This is book 2 in the Shadowflesh series, and deals with the same characters only a different twist of events. What would you do if you forgot one thing?? Something so important to you that you would be willing to risk your life for it? I honestly don’t know what I would do to tell you the truth.  Now that being said, this book is fantastic! It mirrors the first novel to the extent of where the characters are the same spunky amazing characters that have so much personality that they are reeking of it. And there is conflict, oh is there a hell of a conflict. There is romance (it is pg romance though) and the descriptions in this book are amazing. The flow was really nice and smooth and I didn’t find any real hiccups in it at all. The only thing I’m wondering is why more people haven’t read this. It was released March 31 of this year and there are NO reviews on Goodreads for it yet!! Have no fear though, I will be more then happy to remedy that for him!

Once again, it was an absolute pleasure reading this book for this review!

500 Days by Jessica Miller (Review and Purchase links)

500Days

Book Description

April 14, 2014
Casper Covington had his music, women, and pretty much anything he wanted at his disposal. But the one thing that plagued his thoughts constantly was the one thing he couldn’t have. The girl he met six months ago. A drunken one night stand that he couldn’t get out of his head. The only thing he remembered from that night was her green eyes and the ivy tattoo that stretched the length of her body. In his attempts to put an end to the tortuous dreams of the mysterious girl, Casper’s attention is caught by the new bartender. There’s just something so familiar about her that his need to get to know her becomes more troublesome than he expected. Alexis Radcliff was raised by her four brothers making her as tough as nails on the outside but on the inside she wanted what every girl did – someone to love her, faults and all. She would be damned if she admitted that out loud and made a point to show she could use men just as easily as they used women. But when a sexy musician starts to show interest in Alex she has a hard time convincing herself to stay away. Alex knows everyone has secrets but hers are ones she doesn’t want to share. But when she can no longer fight her feelings, her dark past slowly starts to unravel.
Can true love conquer all? Or are past ghosts a haunting premonition of what lies ahead?

 

I was given an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. The opinions of this book are my own and were not bought by the author nor do they reflect the author in anyway.

Lets Just take a minute and appreciate the work the author put into making this cover for her book. That’s right she made this cover. To me that is just awesome, the fact that not only did she create this amazing book that is just live with feeling and electricity, but she also published it and created the cover herself.  On to the actual review.

I read this book around my birthday which is the end of April. Now there was still snow out here so it was nice to be cuddled up to a book with a cup of tea by the window and just get lost. This novel isn’t your typical love story. It’s full of angst and betrayal, hurt, devastation and attitude. Sure there are the parts where its all mushy and smutty and what not, but what romance novel doesn’t have those.

What I liked about this book was the STORY. The plot and the characters essentially is what kept me captivated, that and the fact that Jessica Miller just has this way with words that it just hypnotizes me and keeps me entrap in reading it until the very end. I actually had to break away from it twice. Just so that I could let the information sink in as towards what I was reading, and when it was over, I felt emotionally drained.  And there was no cliffhanger at the end, which made me soooo happy. I hate cliffhangers the ones that just drop off the face of the earth and expect you to be happy about it. Yah no . Usually when that happens I refuse to pick up the second book, because really why would you do that to me??!?!?!!

Characters, where to start on those? Our 2 main characters are Casper and Alexis or Alex. Now I’m not going to sit here and explain who they are in great detail because I find that takes away the thrill of getting to know them inside of the book, what I will say is that they are expertly written. They are well though out and they mesh really really well. They were in the very sense made for each other. If they were real people, I have no doubt in my mind that they would be together.

Over all I gave this book 5 stars out of 5!!
