 REVENGE 1

Excerpt:

“I was a fool tonight,” Xavier began, causing me to frown at him in confusion.

“How so?”

“I should have kissed you on the dance floor. That way I would’ve had a whole night of tasting you.”

I didn’t know what to say, the breath had been sucked clean from me. His delicious lips hovered next to mine, a magnetic pull between us becoming too hard to bear.

“I can’t wait any longer,” he whispered.

“I don’t want you to wait.” A tingling sensation roared through my body and I knew I wanted this more than anything. He answered my silent pleas by pulling me against his hard body and lowering his lips to graze mine. It was a tease. A small taster of things to come. But I was already weak at the knees. I wanted him to possess me. His hands formed tighter fists in my hair, his hooded eyes telling me he could wait no longer. Xavier’s lips came crashing onto mine, claiming the last of my strength. I melted into him, responding to his tongue while failing to disguise the gentle moan passing between us. It was everything I had fantasized it to be. It was everything I had craved. He tasted sweet from sugary mojito’s, his passion a fury that couldn’t be tamed.

REVIEW! THE BEAUTIFUL ASHES by JEANIENE FROST

the beautiful ashes

Title: The Beautiful Ashes
Author: Jeaniene Frost

SYNOPSIS

In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate.

Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who’s bound by an ancient legacy to betray her.

Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn’t mean he can change his fate…no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn’t: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side and Adrian on the other. And nothing but ashes in between…

 

REVIEW

What an exciting start to the series!

The author has creatively blended mythology, folklore, and fantasy with skill.  The romance blooms slowly, but the action and suspense take a front seat in this installment.  The background is revealed on a “need to know” basis, which fueled my need to know!  As I raced through the pages, I was entertained and intrigued by the various obstacles Ivy and Adrian had to overcome.  Biblical/Christian mythology is the front runner here, and very brilliantly implemented.  It’s always a refreshing treat when an author puts an impelling twist in a novel that involves ancient beginnings that most can recognize.

Ending, or pausing, with a cliffhanger, I’m left with too many questions to stop now.  Bravo to Frost, as you’ve hooked another fan with your enticing bait!

COVER REVEAL: I KNOW LUCY By: Melissa Pearl

Releases on April 20, 2014

Add to your Want To Read List on Goodreads

Genre: YA Romantic Suspense

Lucy Tate is on the run. After witnessing the brutal murder of her parents, she’s spent five years in hiding — taking on different personas and faking her way through life. The authorities can’t be trusted, so she remains in the shadows, always one beat ahead of the man who is forever hunting her. That is, until she meets Zach Schultz, a senior at Monte Vista High and the one guy she can’t bear to leave. Suddenly her natural instincts to lie, steal, and run are overshadowed by something else…the desire to stay. It’s her one shot at a normal life.

Curious by nature, Zach is immediately drawn to the new girl at school. How can a person look both confident and vulnerable all in the same moment? Determined to learn more about her, he tries to get close, but is thrown into a world of lies and confusion. The only thing that becomes apparent is that discovering the truth may get him killed.

Teaser

ZACH…

“This is different, you guys.” I shook my head. “I mean yes, she is gorgeous. And yes, I’m attracted to her, but it’s not just her looks. There’s something about her. She’s intriguing. It’s like she’s not all she appears to be or something.”

“You can tell that after two minutes of interacting with her? Give me a break.” Elliot balled up his napkin and threw it on the table.

“I know I don’t know her at all yet, but I can tell there’s something more there.” I rubbed my bottom lip.

“She looks normal to me.” AJ shrugged.

“I think she’s pretty. She looks sweet, but…” Liesl turned to spy her quickly. “AJ’s right. She looks like any other transfer student. What makes her so different?”

“It’s something about her eyes. There’s a story in them. I can’t even explain why I think that. I just feel like she’s got a lot of layers and I want to peel back every single one of them.”

“I bet you do.” Elliot raised his eyebrows.

“Not like that.” I threw him a droll look. “I just want to solve the mystery that is Danielle Harrison.”

“Dude, there is no mystery.” Elliot slapped his hand lightly on the table.

“Yes there is. I can feel it.”

“Careful, Zachy, your Nancy Drew is showing.” Jaeda’s green eyes were large and round as she gave me a playful look.

“I don’t care.” I shrugged, confident in the truth that I really didn’t. “That girl over there has secrets and I’m gonna figure out what they are.”
