Review tour: The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard + Giveaway


Synopsis
16288155Allison O’Malley’s plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison’s mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn’t trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother’s sanity.


Opinion
The plot of this book was great only the beginning was rather slow in comparison to the ending.  The magical elements of this story were subtly woven into the plot. That way you experienced it just like Allison did. Allison was an easy person to like. She takes care of the people she loves, including her mom, her cousin Nicole and her friend Ethan, and she’ll never let them down. That also means that she tries to never disappoint any of them and to make them happy if she can. Once the supernatural elements entered the story the romance part was sometimes hard to find. And that’s a shame ‘cause I liked the chemistry between Allison and Ethan. But I think that we get to see more of it in the next book.  At times it was hard for me to understand the story, it was like Allison knew more about the fey world than the readers did. So at times I felt a little lost, but the plot was still easy to follow. And I was said that the story ended so fast, I wouldn’t have minded if it was a few chapters longer, definitely after reading the ending! I’m very curious to see what will happen to Allison in the fey world and in the human world.
(Note if you decide to read the book, at the end there’s a list to how to pronounce certain names, it might come in handy ;) )

Waiting on Wednesday #20: Crash into You by Katie McGarry


 


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that I am anxiously awaiting is:
17233800


From acclaimed author Katie McGarry comes an explosive new tale of a good girl with a reckless streak, a street-smart guy with nothing to lose, and a romance forged in the fast lane

The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life-that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers...and she's just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind.

Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look.

But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Why I can't wait: I finished reading Dare You To a few days ago and just like Pushing the Limits I loved it. So I have a feeling that Katie McGarry can never disappoint me. And it's Isaiah's book and let's face it he's a great guy!

Review tour: Addicted to You by Colina Brennan

 
Synopsis
17860572
When twenty-one-year-old Leah Carter’s latest one night stand burglarizes her apartment, her roommate forces her to attend therapy for sex addicts. Leah insists she isn’t a sex addict; she just doesn’t do relationships. After all, sooner or later, everyone lets you down.

At first, the group sessions are little more than an education on how to be promiscuous. Until she meets the newest addict—blue eyes, killer body, and a smile that tempts relapse.

Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.

As the uncertainties spike alongside the sexual tension, the only thing Leah knows for sure is that falling in love would be disastrous. Too bad love might be one addiction she can’t kick.

Opinion
This book is perfect to  read in summertime. It’s hot and sweet at the same time.

I really liked Leah. She was so much deeper than I initially thought. Her upbringing wasn’t that easy even if her parents pretended that everything was okay. That’s what made Leah so reserved and grumpy. But like Will always says she’s a grumpy beauty even if she doesn’t know it. And Will is the only one, except from her housemate Helena and her little brother, that can get her to lough and to lighten up a bit. I just loved Will, he’s a good guy and how hard Leah makes it for him he never gives up on her. And he always tried to do the good thing even if it wasn’t always easy. I wished that we got to know more about Will’s background, but I’m already glad that some chapters were written in his point of view. Finn, Will’s friend, made sure of it that there were also hilarious scenes in this book and I hope to see more of him in the future ‘cause he’s a great guy.
The only thing that could have been better in this book was the ending. The whole book was slow paced, but not so slow that it got boring, and then suddenly it went so fast in the end. Nonetheless a great book that I really enjoyed reading.

Top Ten Tuesday #8


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Broke and Bookish. This weeks is: Top Ten Favorite Secondary Characters

1) Isaac (The Fault in Our Stars): I really liked this guy from the moment I met him. And I keep wondering how he’s doing after everything he’s gone through with Augustus and Hazel.

2) Gayle (The Hunger Games): What happened to him after the story ended. Did he find someone  he loves? Did he ever see Katniss again?

3) Sydney (Vampire Academy): When I first read VA, she left a huge impression on me. Never been happier that she got her own series.

4) Julio (Leaving Paradise): I got the feeling that there’s more to him than that we got to know in the book. I wish I would know more about him.

5) Felicity (A Great and Terrible Beauty): What happened to her after Gemma left for America and Ann got to sing in a company? She was such a great personality and I really miss her.

6) Natalie Prior (Divergent): Tris mom was different than I ever expected. I would like to read her story.

7) Marlee (The Selection): This girl is simply amazing. I hope that we got to see more of her in the final book.

8) Emmet (Twilight): I really liked him and I wished that he had a huger part in the books.

9) Luna (Harry Potter): She has a special view on everything and it would be amazing to see through her eyes the world of Harry Potter.

10) Ambrose (Vampire Academy): a male damphire that became a “bloodwhore” what can be more interesting? And I really liked him.

The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski

 16081272

Synopsis
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?


Opinion
Last year I came across this book and added it immediately to my TBR list, but as so many books I forgot about it. That was until recently when I got the chance to read it through NetGalley. And I’m glad that I’ve finally read it.
The Edge of Never was a very emotional read, it made me laugh and it made me cry, but I loved every single page of this book. When we first meet Camryn her life is quiet a mess, nothing is wrong but that’s just it her life is the same as anyone else’s. And mainstream  is not what Cam expected her life to be. That’s until one night turns her life upside down and she decides to leave everything behind. I liked Cam from the moment I met her, sure she’s lost but she’s determined to liver her life to the fullest. And that’s when she meets Andrew. Andrew was even easier to like than Cam, from the first moment he appears in The Edge of Never he puts a smile to my lips. Unlike Cam, Andrew is a happy guy but he has some demons himself that he tries to run away from. But like Cam he wants to get everything out of his life. Soon enough they become friends along their journey and they get each other like no one else did before. And you can definitely feel the chemistry that crackles between them in the book.
The book started of slow, but it picked up pace when Camryn starts her journey. I was a little surprised when suddenly there were chapters in Andrew’s point of view. But I didn’t mind it in the least, I loved seeing it through his eyes. His view on things is completely different than Cam’s. Even when he doesn’t know her he wants to protect her. The Edge of Never never got boring, the author made sure of it that there were enough twist and turns that kept the story going. Only near the end the story went to fast. Suddenly everything went so fast, even a little too fast. Still I immensely loved this story and I can’t wait to read the next book The Edge of Always.

Excerpt
Ashley
 
  When we step outside of the ice cream parlor, Lane reaches over and wraps his hand around mine, making me feel warm all over, despite the cool breeze coming off the ocean.
 We walk down the boardwalk hand in hand, our arms swinging between us, and I can’t stop my blush each time I catch Lane staring at me, and then giggle each time he catches me sneaking a glance at him too. Both of us with silly grins on our faces.
As we turn the corner, at the edge of the boardwalk, right in front of us is a perfectly preserved turn of the century carousel.
I gasp at its beauty. How have I never been here before? Although, a community carousel is the last place that my parents would ever think to bring us. A ride on a schooner is more their speed.
The carousel is covered in small bulbous lights that cast a warm glow over the richly colored horses, each with a different face and intricate carvings on their saddles. The sounds of children and parents laughing intertwine with the carnival style music coming from the ride, and I can’t stop myself from hopping up and down on the tips of my toes like a child. 
Lane chuckles, gripping my hand tightly, as we watch the ornate horses spin around and around and up and down until he points at a big brass ring when it spins by. “If you can grab the ring the ride’s free. Come on.” He gives me a smile and like a couple of kids we run along the side of the carousel until we both grab hold of the ring and hoist ourselves up and onto the ride, laughing and out of breath.
I move to a stationary white horse wearing a deep red saddle and without saying a word Lane lifts me up, in one swift motion, and sets me down so I’m face to face with him riding sidesaddle. He grips the horse’s gold post with one hand, and I can’t help but admire his sinewy arms, lean and strong.
“You are so beautiful,” he says, looking into my eyes as he brushes his thumb against my cheek with his other hand. His sincerity takes my breath away.
I wrap my arms around his neck drawing him closer until he’s standing between my legs. His soft smile fades into a smolder as he leans forward, causing my breath to hitch with the anticipation of his lips on mine.
I close my eyes as he closes the short distance between us achingly slow. My heart skips a beat when I finally feel the warmth of his lips press against mine. He tastes like ice cream and smells like summertime, and I suddenly wonder if the swirling I feel is from the ride or from his kiss.
He pulls away slightly before wrapping his hand around the base of my neck and pulling me into his lips again, making me certain of one thing.
I’m swirling, and it’s definitely from his kisses.

Cover Reveal: Slick As Ides by Chanse Lowell


Synopsis
What happens when a germophobe, elusive computer hacking genius has to stop to fuel up her car and it’s stolen right from under her nose by a handsome vagrant? Revenge of course. 
Only he’s no vagrant... 
He’s a computer hacking genius, too, and her competition. Curses along with inhibitions—fly out the window and through the phone when he calls repeatedly to harasses her. Who will win the upper-hand, if there is such a thing, between these two stubborn, obnoxious people?
 
Author bio
Chanse grew up in the desert southwest and still lives there with her husband, children, and pet cactus. She’s addicted to three things: reading erotica, writing erotica and sandwiches with a side of erotica to aid with digestion. She grew up watching programs with science fiction and historical fiction themes, and is determined she can combine her three favorite genres, creating a new breed of novel with scifi, historical and smut sandwiched in the middle.

The last thing she ever thought she’d do was pursue her dream to be a writer since her family tends to keep her busy. When she was introduced to fan fiction, she realized she wanted to see more science fiction and historical fiction to fill in the gap with lots of naughtiness thrown in, of course. Her true passion is creating her own worlds from scratch, letting her imagination go and take her to another place.

She has two novels coming out soon, Sleeves a science fiction erotica and Knots, a contemporary BDSM that shows the softer, tender side of a Dom/sub relationship. Having recently entered the lifestyle and discovering she’s a submissive herself has opened her eyes to how few stories there are exploring the softer side of the lifestyle. She enjoys chatting online with others with similar kinky interests and has advisers in the lifestyle that help make sure her stories remain true and don’t veer off into outer space. Although aliens probably enjoy kink, too, since they like to dress in rubber fetish-wear while traveling. At least that’s her argument for why her new genre she’s created is valid.

Dirty Litlle Secret by Jennifer Echols

Synopsis
16058488Bailey wasn’t always a wild child and the black sheep of her family. She used to play fiddle and tour the music circuit with her sister, Julie, who sang and played guitar. That ended when country music execs swooped in and signed Julie to a solo deal. Never mind that Julie and Bailey were a duet, or that Bailey was their songwriter. The music scouts wanted only Julie, and their parents were content to sit by and let her fulfill her dreams while Bailey’s were hushed away.

Bailey has tried to numb the pain and disappointment over what could have been. And as Julie’s debut album is set to hit the charts, her parents get fed up with Bailey’s antics and ship her off to granddad’s house in Nashville. Playing fiddle in washed-up tribute groups at the mall, Bailey meets Sam, a handsome and oh-so-persuasive guitarist with his own band. He knows Bailey’s fiddle playing is just the thing his band needs to break into the industry. But this life has broken Bailey’s heart once before. She isn’t sure she’s ready to let Sam take her there again…

 
- Goodreads
 

Opinion
The synopsis of the book picked up my interest because it’s about music and because it’s written by Jennifer Echols.

I really like the plot of the book. Bailey a fiddle player lost her music future because her younger sister got contracted as a solo artist. After that Bailey loses herself completely a sweet girl turns into a rebellious girl that does everything to defy her parents. That’s until she meets Sam, he has had his fair share of problems. But Sam is even more trouble than Bailey is. He wants to make it in the music circuit and he does everything to achieve that goal, even if that means breaking girls their heart and using his friends. And that’s why I wanted to kick him, something good is standing in front of him but he doesn’t even notice because the only thing he sees is the record deal that is shining in the distance. But at the same time I loved him, yes he’s a total douche, but in the end he cares about his friends. And he’s always been honest about his passion for music and what he’s willing to do for it.
And then there are Baileys parents, all I can say is that I’m happy that they are not mine. I can understand that they pursue a music career for Baileys younger sister when she has a chance. But what I don’t understand is that they can’t understand is that they don’t understand that Bailey is unhappy and that they just put her away with her granddad like she doesn’t exists anymore.
The only thing that I found lacking in this book was the chemistry between Bailey and Sam. Yes I could see that they were attracted to each other, but that’s it. Maybe it’s because the timespan of the book is only one week, but I couldn’t really feel the chemistry between the both of them. Other than that I really enjoyed Dirty Little Secret and I’m definitely going to read more books from Jennifer Echols.

Review Tour: The Emblazoned Red by Dawn McCullough White

Synopsis
17999913
Once, in another world—a dark world, the world of Faetta—there lived paladins and pirates, tyrants and scallywags, vampires and the undead. In this world a revolution is brewing. The royalty of Sieunes are in chains, and those priests and paladins who follow the holy word of the gods are under attack. In the west, the kingdom of Kellerhald receives the fleeing priests in their temples of the paladins of Silvius, god of the Sky.
Here, a young woman has just passed her tests to become a paladin. A pirate crew raids along the Azez Sea. An undead creature, wielding great power, roams the graveyard of Yetta. And a lost soul, crying out from beyond the veil, seeks out a pure hearted warrior to hear its plea.
Amid the turmoil of the revolution, Ilka’s mettle is tested. Rescued by pirates, she ends up with an unlikely ally: the pirate captain himself. The newly trained paladin finds herself collaborating with the undead, working with a vampire, and worst of all, longing for revenge against the man who has ignited the revolution in Sieunes: Francois Mond.
Death of an Innocent. Rise of a Paladin.
Opinion
The Emblazoned Red was different than I expected it to be. I expected more action in it, but it was still good. At first it was a bit difficult for me to get into it, because the point of views constantly changed. But after I got used to it, I really enjoyed reading it. The writing and the plot itself were very good, but it wasn’t very deep, which I mist.
Most of the story we saw true Ilka’s eyes, a paladin. Which was good since I really liked her, she’s a strong girl who knows what she wants and she has a really strong determination. We also got to know her past, which we don’t know of other characters. The next most interesting person was definitely Nate. He might be a pirate, but well he doesn’t act like one. Definitely not when he’s around Ilka. I don’t know about the other characters that appeared like the vampire Augustine, Sylian, Cameo and the king. Maybe we will get to know them better in the next books or maybe they were important in the original books, as this is a spin-off series. Reading the original series, Trilogy of the Shadows, beforehand is probably a good idea since you might get to know the world that Ilka and the other live in better.
This book is probably not a book that I’m going to reread again soon, but in the end I really enjoyed it.

Losing It by Cora Carmack

 

Synopsis
16034964Love. Romance. Sex. There's a first time for everything...
As far as Bliss Edwards can tell, she's the last virgin standing, certainly amongst her friends. And she's determined to deal with the 'problem' as quickly and simply as possible.

But her plan for a no-strings one night stand turns out to be anything but simple. Especially when she arrives for her first class and recognises her hot new British professor.

She'd left him naked in her bed just 8 hours earlier...

 
- Goodreads
 
Opinion
Losing it was a great book. I enjoyed reading it, the characters were nice and the book well written. Most New Adult books I’ve read so far are full off drama, but not this one. This one was filled with funny things.
Bliss was a good humored girl who was very down to earth. And she was also a bit awkward, especially at the beginning of the book. But that was what made the book so much fun to read. Especially her thoughts were hilarious to follow, I wouldn’t mind to read more books in her perspective.  
Garrick was a guy you immediately liked, and his British accent definitely didn’t help. When he first meets Bliss he’s lonely because he just moved to this place. But well if you meet Bliss than it’s impossible to stay away from her. And it’s remarkable how much patience Garrick had with her, she runs out on him, but that doesn’t bother him where most guys wouldn’t go near her again.
I loved seeing Garrick and Bliss together from the very first moment that they were together in one room you knew that they were perfect for each other. Sometimes it was as if you could feel the tension from the book in your own room. And the chemistry between them was undeniable.
Definitely a book worth reading and I can’t wait to read other books by Cora Carmack!

Then Griff, trailer-park boy next door and fellow hacker, shows up, intent on helping Wick. Is a happy ending possible with the threat of Wick’s deadbeat dad returning, the detective hunting him sniffing around Wick instead, and a killer taunting her at every step?

Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.

But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.

Because it just got personal.
