On Wings of Darkness

by Jolie Pethtel
Synopsis:

What would happen if you were meant to die, but someone intervened? Your very existence would disrupt the natural balance, effecting everyone you touch for the remainder of your unnatural life. What if you met your soul mate? A man who was meant for you alone, but at the same time not because you should no longer exist? This is what happens to Adara James when she crosses paths with Journey Montgomery, a man unknowingly shadowed by darkness. This is no chance meeting between two human strangers, but a collision of souls whose continued proximity to one another has the potential to tear apart the world.

REVIEW:

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review from lovers of paranormal.

This book was alright. Not good, not bad, just alright. There were parts that were really good! It made you want to keep reading it, and then there were parts where you just wanted to put the book down.
The characters I feel weren’t really developed all that well, they were just kinda thrown in there for the story. I really wanted to get to know them a bit better. The story line is a good one and I wish that she would have inserted more of it in the actual book so that it flowed better.

The ending sucked. Like really sucked. You know those kids books where your reading and its really good and then all of a sudden you see THE END. Yah that’s what I think of this ending.

Of all of the angel books that I have read this one is fairly close to the bottom. It was to quick, wasn’t developed enough, tons of grammatical errors and typos. But after you get through all of that still not a bad read.

A Perfect Moment
Goodreads Synopsis:

by Becca Lee (Goodreads Author)

“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”

Ella’s perfect moment was taken from her is the worst possible way. Humiliated, heart broken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.

Preston has known that he was in love his big sister’s best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he’s on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.

Ella’s instinct is to run when she realizes her feelings for her bestie’s little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can’t run, she’ll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.

She already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she’ll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the firefighter’s Christmas calendar.

*** Contains steamy-hot moments, romance, friendship and a bulk load of swearing – non explicit sex scenes. ***

My Review:

So I read this book in the middle of July and had every intention of writing a review, and then life got involved and I got sidetracked. But I’m writing it now after reading this novel again. This book right here, is a fantastic book, the characters are on point and pretty much through out the entire thing I was either smiling or laughing or crying with it. The plot (which is a typical love story plot) is really good and she really doesn’t leave anything to the imagination. Now I’m not one for romance or erotica novels, they don’t really do anything for me, but this book was more like a real life kind of book, where you could really picture it and get into it. The writing is fantastic, the descriptions are on point and the characters are flawless. I loved every moment reading this novel and wouldn’t hesitate to pick up another one by this author! You should all give it a try!

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!!

By Wendy Owens
Blurb:
A broken heart is only the beginning for her.
Bookworm Annabelle Hart thinks she’s found the love of her life. But when her fiancé’s philandering ways shatter their happy future, she decides she’s through playing the victim. Now, rather than read about life, she wants to live it—starting with a sabbatical from her editing job in Chicago to travel the world. But the past refuses to let her go so easily.
He thinks he has his life figured out.
After watching the woman he thought he loved walk away from him, Holden Blackburn is still picking up the pieces. Content with his life as the owner of an English Inn, just outside the sleepy town of Alton, he’s living his new and peaceful normal. That is, at least, until Annabelle stumbles into his life, and he’s overwhelmed by a desire to learn all he can about her. Now if only he can get her to stay in one place long enough.
Will they risk their hearts on a new chance at love?
When her past returns in a way she can’t ignore, Anna panics, running from any possible future with Holden. She’s determined to keep her life from falling apart again, but she soon discovers the only place she feels safe is in Holden’s arms.
But some things even he can’t protect her from.

My Thoughts/Review:I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. Now the reason behind that is because well, lets just face it right head on. It was too damn short. There is so much more to this story begging to be told. The characters are great, they are well developed and they have that emotional attachment that I for one look for.  The area where this book is based, again its flawless. Wendy has a way with descriptions that just puts everyone else to shame. The plot of this book is again also really really good. I just wish there was MORE. I crave MORE of this story. If you would have given me 100 more pages you would have gotten 5 stars out of me. Now what blew me away with all of this though, is that this isn’t a paranormal book, its a romance novel (not what I usually read). But I threw my caution into the wind and just started reading. 4 hours later and another book out of my belt, I felt strangely unsatisfied. I just want more.

Ember and Cinder (Review and Purchase links)

Synopsis via Goodreads: (YA version)
What if you knew when someone was going to die?
For seventeen-year-old Ember, life is death. With a simple touch, she knows when someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person who knows her secret is her best friend Raven.
Then she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous, mysterious, and is the only person Ember can’t sense death from. So when he pushes into her life, she doesn’t mind. But when unexplained deaths start to haunt her town, Ember starts questioning why she can’t sense Asher’s death and what he may be hiding.

My Review: I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was a pretty damn good book, it kept me entertained and engaged in the characters. There was description and depth, there was emotion. There was everything that I hold near and dear in a good story. It was also about Death angels, and grim angels and grim reapers… Seriously how cool is that? I honestly love books like this. I also read the “New adult” version Ember-X to see how different it really was from the original YA version, and honestly its the exact same story, only there is a little bit of naughty in it. But its done tastefully. Jessica Sorensen from what I can tell has a really good knack at writing books like this, where she can do a YA and a Adult version. Love it!!

Synopsis via Goodreads: (YA Version)  Until Asher Morgan came along, nineteen-year old Ember’s life had always been about death. Being around Asher, though, and being able to be near him and touch him, changed her and made her feel alive for the very first time. But now he’s gone and she’s left dealing with her seclusion again, the emptiness of not being able to be touched, and the curse of the Grim Angel.

As a battle breaks out between Angels and Reapers, she desperately searches for answers about who she is, where she came from, and what she needs to stop the battle. But things get complicated when Cameron returns to her life and begins messing with her thoughts and emotions.

Ember tries to hold onto her sanity while the line between life and death begins to blur. Lives are threatened and taken. Murder is everywhere. She needs to figure out what’s real, what’s an illusion, and who she really has feelings for before it’s too late.

My Review : I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. You know the one thing I really hate about a series…. is when not all of the books are released so that I can just plow through them. I LOVED this book. I read it in 4 hours, if that. It was that good, it was a great pace, great dialog, great emotion, well you get the drift. It was just a fantastic book! I love how you can get so lost into a story that nothing seems to happen around you. Next thing you know, page after page your just more lost in the story. I loved the length of this book, it wasn’t to short so that it pissed me off and yet it wasn’t to long that I happened to lose interest in it. I cannot wait for the next book in this series! I’m so excited to find out what happens!!

I also read the New Adult version of this book and again the only read differences is that it can get a tiny bit naughty. But its done very tasteful. I would read another adult book of hers as it just doesn’t feel like smut yah know? SUPPORT YOUR INDIE AUTHORS!!!!

Shadow’s Dangers by Cindy Mezni (REVIEW)

18803586

Goodreads book blurb can be found ————>HERE!<————

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Where do I start? This is the very first book in a very longtime that I have given 5 stars too. The characters are fantastic, the plot in this, is fantastic. The story just flows like a river, with nothing stopping it. I loved this book. I even loved the ending where you know for a fact that there is going to be a book two, but the best part about this book?? Was that I got emotionally invested in these characters. I CAN’T WAIT to get my hands on book 2 ( seriously hurry up and write it! ) I can’t sing the praises enough for this novel/series. It was that good.

Thank you so much for allowing me to read this, it was a highlight in my week, I had to force myself to put it down, so that I didn’t digest it in just one sitting. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
