If I thought Ms. Bateman couldn’t possibly surprise me more than she had in the first book of this series, I was so, so wrong. I felt like I was on Space Mountain at Disney, where everything is mostly dark and you aren’t sure which way the coaster is going to go, and you’re somehow surprised by every dip and turn even though you know you’re signing on for a bumpy ride. The amount of imagination and creativity in this book was amazing. It took a bit more of a sci-fi turn than I expected, but I actually loved it and thought it was an interesting and fun twist.

The story picks up shortly after the ending of the first book. Jenna is still navigating her lingering feelings of guilt and hurt over the way her last relationship ended up, but she’s finally starting to open up a little more to Connor, who is absolutely enamored with her from the very beginning. It takes her a bit, but once she realizes that he’s not anything like her ex, she decides to take a chance on him and embraces their newfound relationship status. To say I was thrilled by this development is a massive understatement. I adore Connor and I’ve been Team Connor from almost the beginning, so this made my little fangirl heart swoon like mad 🙂

Without giving away spoilers, there are things that happen in this book that send Jenna and her friends’ minds reeling. Suddenly, they find they have to believe the impossible and set aside what they thought they knew about their world and–for lack of a better term–learn to go with the flow. With these new developments come new characters–most of whom I liked, a few I loved, and one in particular, I could’ve smacked upside the head (though he does seem to redeem himself a bit in the end). We also get to see more of some of the secondary characters and get to know them a little better, which I loved.

Along with the new scenario they find themselves in, not only are their preconceptions about the world challenged, but especially later on in the book, each group of characters–old and new–are taught a few lessons about humanity and how prejudice can color the way you view people if you don’t take the time to get to know them and their plight. At the heart of the book is a wonderful story that’s both timely and inspiring and it certainly made me think. It’s pretty amazing when an author can give you a reason to think while reading a fantasy novel.

Without a doubt, this book lived up to my expectations. It definitely ends on another cliffhanger, but that’s okay with me because that just means there’s more to come 😉 I look forward to finding out what happens next!

Happy reading <3

Adeline Severance leads a dangerous, magical double life.

Tattoo artist by day and warding witch by night, Adeline uses magical inks, a tattoo machine, and the help of her best friend Lars to permanently imbue spells of protection onto her clients. Thanks to the Magistrate's greed and failure to protect its citizens, her services were in high demand.

With her cover story blown, Adeline has two choices: Run as far and as fast as she can, or stay and fight. Though she’s not ready to give up the only life she’s ever known, putting her trust in a traitor may end up being the worst decision she's ever made.

This was an incredibly unique reading experience. I’m a huge sucker for just about anything paranormal, but when I saw that the heroine is a tattoo artist, I was even more interested. Also, if I’m being honest here, I was incredibly intrigued by the cover. The romance community has some awesome cover artists and this one is no exception!

Adeline was a unique character. She’s both incredibly strong and terribly fragile. She’s gone through so much in her life and has had to beg, borrow, and steal to survive. She’s been used and abused and until her guardian/mentor had saved her as a child, she never knew any differently. After her guardian’s death, she’s left with her pseudo-brother, Lars, who is much more teddy bear than grizzly, despite his fierce appearance. The two of them own the tattoo shop where Adeline works as a tattoo artist, but at night she uses her incredibly rare magic to tattoo spells on the skin of people who need her specific brand of help. This has made her a target for the Magistrate–the magical version of the government. And yes, they’re as corrupt as they sound.

Then there’s Nicholas … who is blackmailed by the Magistrate to bring in Adeline for their own nefarious purposes. As the danger escalates and the trio is thrust together in a strange partnership of sorts, Adeline finds herself being drawn to Nicholas in ways she can’t explain–effectively putting her mind at war with her heart. As more of Nicholas’s powers are brought to light, Adeline wonders just how trustworthy this man could actually be.

As I stated in the opening of this post, this was such a unique read. I had read books that feature mages imbuing magic into the ink they use to tattoo, but I had never read one where that is the focal point of a story. It was fascinating to get inside the mind of such a powerful mage. Also, not only are you getting a story with great magical elements, but the author really takes you through an emotional roller coaster. There are parts that are hilarious and parts that made me want to cry. I always say it’s a great writer who can invoke that kind of emotion in their readers. 🙂

Honestly, I greatly enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read the next installment. I would highly, highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good paranormal romance and doesn’t mind a little slow burn. It’s an all-around fun read!

As always, if you read this book, feel free to stop by and let me know what you thought about it in the comments. I always love a good book chat 🙂

Full Glasses and Burju Shoes – Blake Blessing

Impulsive and Obsessive.

Two words people use to describe me.
What does that mean?
I impulsively jump into hobbies and get…obsessed.
Rock climbing. Bungee jumping. You name it.
Why?
Because I need to keep the glass full.
There’s no time for romance or sticky relationships.
It’s just not who I am.
-Perrin Michaels

Bitter and Broken.

Two words everyone uses to describe me.
What does that mean?
I’m fucking broken and bitter over it… Leave me alone.
War vet. Life failure. You name it.
Why?
Because I don’t fit in here anymore.
I don’t want to care about someone else when I’m stuck.
It’s just not who I am.
-Emiliano Espocito

Can two people really heal each other, or does it only work one way?

Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve read a contemporary romance that has checked all the boxes for me like this one has.

Sexy alpha hero? Check.

Hilarious but sweet heroine? Check.

Steamy scenes that will singe your fingertips while you’re reading? Check.

A beautiful love story that elicits all the feels? Check, check, and check.

Ms. Blessing had me swooning one minute, laughing the next, and crying after that. I just … ugh. This book was just so good. The story revolves around two people who are doing their best to get by with varying degrees of brokenness. There was so much emotion in this book; it was angsty and heartwarming and sweet and sad all at once. At the heart of it is a story that I think is incredibly important–the way civilian life affects someone who has been in the military. My dad is a veteran, so was my grandpa, so is my father-in-law, and several other people in the family as well as some friends have been in the military, so I’ve always had a heart for anyone who has been in the military. I think they deserve a lot more recognition than they get and I thought the author did a fantastic job of showing the humanity and realism of this kind of life. Yes, these people are heroes, but they also have to make some terrible, awful decisions that they will live with for the rest of their lives. I loved that Blake Blessing showed that anyone who is or was in the military deserves respect while also giving examples of the raw consequences of some of these actions that flirt in the gray area of the moral code. I definitely wouldn’t say this book was an *easy* read, but it also wasn’t explicit in just how bad it was for them. A lot is hinted at throughout the book, especially during one conversation in particular toward the end, but I just thought Blake handled the balance between giving too much information and not enough quite well.

As for the characters …

Perrin–can we just talk about how effing awesome that name is, by the way? I seriously am so in love with it!–is an adrenaline junkie who obsessively tries new hobbies until she’s perfected them. She’s a little flighty and flies by the seat of her pants in just about every aspect of her life and she has no time for relationships–even, to a point, the relationship with her sister. As soon as conversation veers from fun and casual into the sentimental and deep, she’s out. I will say, Perrin has had a few pretty rough years that have helped shape her outlook on life and this is the only way she really knows how to cope. She prefers to always look on the brighter side of life and if it doesn’t help “keep her glasses full,” then she doesn’t want anything to do with it. Perrin is all about having fun and she has no desire for anything more than that.

Emil is a broken man after returning from a stint in the military. After all the things he’s seen and done fighting overseas, he’s plagued with guilt, regret, sorrow, anger, and so much bitterness, it seeps out of every fiber of his being. When Emil first enters the book, he’s volatile; a ticking time bomb just waiting to be set off. The first meeting between hero and heroine certainly does not start out well. In fact, Perrin is wary of him to the point of even being slightly frightened, and I don’t blame her one bit. To say Emil has baggage is putting it extremely politely. No matter what he does, his demons follow him, and until he’s willing to try something to get some help, he’s never going to be able to crawl out of the dark hole he’s found himself in. Emil is the epitome of one of my favorite type of heroes; multi-faceted, deep, charming, sexy, kind, and so giving. At first, he’s liable to fly off the handle at any lingering glance at Perrin, but his possessiveness is a huge part of how messed up his brain is in its current state. He’s lost so many people who were close to him, and that mixed with the harsh realities of war has really done a number on his psyche. It was heartbreaking.

Without giving away any spoilers, there is an underlying message of hope sprinkled throughout the novel that was absolutely stunning. Emil and Perrin are amazing characters on their own, but together their chemistry is explosive. The sex-y scenes are so hot, I swear you could have fried an egg on my face while I was reading them! So, word for the wise: sit in front of a fan. ;P

Anyway, this book was incredible. Definitely one of my favorite reads of the year, and I would highly, highly recommend it to anyone who is a contemporary romance fan. Seriously–I was so impressed, and I can’t wait to read the next story Blake blesses us with (see what I did there?).

 

Happy reading!!

Lines – Anna B. Doe

Senior year.Three girls. Three guys.Hockey and rivalry.Mean girls and friendships.Old loves and new chances.One more year of being invisible.One more year to win it all.The countdown begins.

Senior year can’t come or end fast enough for Amelia Campbell. For the shy, nerdy girl-next-door that she is, high school is torture and all she wants is for it to be over. Having her heart broken by a popular, womanizing boy all those years ago doesn’t help the matters. Nor does his best friend who still has a habit of mercilessly teasing her. Now, she only has one year left, one year to be invisible before she can move on with her life.

Derek King doesn’t do drama, but his life is all about drama once Maximillian Sanders steps foot into his town, his school, and into Amelia’s life. Max is always around, and he is making her smile again. But the boy who once broke her heart isn’t ready to let her go. Older and wiser, Derek isn’t about to let someone take away what he wants, and he wants Amelia.

She's set on not believing in him and on not getting her heart broken once again. He is set on showing her wrong.

She says she hates him, but maybe the line between past and present, love and hate is thinner than she ever realized.

This was my first read by Anna B. Doe, so I didn’t fully know what to expect from her writing style. I enjoyed the story. I did feel like the characters were a bit superficial and I felt that the lack of contractions in dialogue was a little strange; I’d think teenagers would be more likely to use them–especially when talking with friends. Also, the hero called the heroine “little one,” and it just drove me a little nutty. It seems like something you would call a child, so it came off as somewhat condescending and insincere to me. That’s mostly just splitting hairs, but it’s my two cents’ worth.

Amelia is sweet, but she’s incredibly shy and insecure. She’s spent most of her school years being bullied–especially by the hero’s best friend. After always being made fun of, she’s gotten terribly withdrawn and only really spends time with her best friend, Brook. Also, may I just take a moment to say how much I love the way that name is spelled? So cool. Anyway, back to Amelia. 🙂 She’s inexplicably attracted to Derek, whom she used to be friends with until his friend started making fun of her and he never stood up for her. After that, he’s been off limits in her mind and she has no desire to get close to him. No matter what she feels when she’s around him, her trust has been broken and her heart has been bruised, and she’s not too apt to go through that again. When Max–the new guy–enters the picture as her hero one morning when her car breaks down on the way to school, she finds in him a great friend who just so happens to be sweet, funny, and none too shabby to look at. I personally would have loved to see that relationship develop a bit more, but I have a feeling the author has another plan in mind for Max.

Derek is one of the most popular guys in school. He’s one of the stars of the school’s hockey team and he’s gained a bit of a reputation for being a player. He prefers to hook up than have relationships. But when the new guy at school starts showing interest in Amelia, he can’t help but feel the need to claim the girl who’s always occupied his heart. In doing so, old feelings clash with remembered hurt and broken trust, and he’s finding himself acting in ways he never expected so he can be the one to win Amelia’s heart–and prove that he’s worth trusting again.

Of course, not everything goes according to plan and they find themselves hitting more obstacles than smooth sailing. I couldn’t help but get a little upset at the situation and feel awful for the people involved. The emotions were written well and I felt like the characters reacted the way they would have if it had been real, which obviously made it more believable.

In all, I enjoyed the story. I felt like it fell a little flat in some ways, but overall, the story was really good and I’ll probably follow the rest of the series. I love young adult series that follow different couples in the friends group, and I’m looking forward to seeing who ends up with whom. I have my suspicions, but I’ll have to wait and see if I’m right 😉

So, if you’re a fan of young adult romance, make sure you check this one out and decide what you think for yourself 🙂

The Infernal Sacrament – Nissa Leder & R.J. Harris

In the heart of Seattle, an invisible war wages between angels and demons for the souls of humankind.

Ava Pierce knows her friends are keeping secrets.

When Ava’s boyfriend Darien dumps her completely out of the blue, her world is turned upside down.

Break-ups are normal, so why is she convinced that there’s more to it than he’s telling her?

Desperate for distraction, she finds herself drawn to Finn, a mysterious stranger with an uncanny ability to keep her mind off her heartache. But she can’t shake the feeling that something is going on with Darien and her friends. Something they aren’t telling her about.

Darien Crain’s life is going straight to hell.

When a loved one dies, most people inherit money or property. Darien inherits a living nightmare.

After his grandfather’s death, all his feelings for his gorgeous girlfriend Ava completely disappeared. But that’s not all. Now, Darien is plagued by strange dreams, pounding headaches, and terrifying visions that have led him to three conclusions:

First, the girl who haunts his dreams is real. Second, the creatures he's seeing look like demons. And finally, there is more darkness in the world than he ever imagined.

Will keeping Ava in the dark keep her safe?

Darien must come to terms with the secrets his family has kept from him his entire life and distance himself from his past, including Ava.

Ava is determined to learn the truth, even if it kills her. As she pieces together the strange things happening, she turns to Finn for the answers her friends are hiding. But should she put her trust in him or is he keeping the most dangerous secret of all?

To be completely honest with you, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book when I started it. There are several POVs and I was a little nervous it was going to be like the book I’d read that had so many POVs, I could barely follow along with the story …

However, each point of view adds more substance to the story, and it always picked up where the last one ended–or at least they correlated with each other in some way–so I wasn’t left feeling like I was getting whiplash from the varying narrations, nor was I super confused and wondering how one character’s POV related to the others’. Honestly, it was extremely well done and each character is so different from the other, but not to the point where it was jarring to read. I’m always amazed when two authors can write the same story and the overall “voice” of the book is in perfect harmony, and that’s exactly what I got here. I couldn’t tell this book was written by two people and it baffles my mind to read something so eloquently written, but the story here was fantastic and I really do have to commend the authors for such a unique read.

As you know if you’ve followed any of my reviews or have read the previous ones I’ve written, I’m a pretty big fan of R.J. Harris and I personally think she’s an extremely underrated indie author who deserves way more attention than she’s received so far. If you’re a fan of paranormal/urban fantasy, please give her books a read because seriously, her writing is incredible. Nissa Leder is a new author for me, but with the help of this book, I know I’ll be reading more of her work.

This story follows four young adults–Ava, Darien, Finn, and Rachel–as they navigate broken hearts, new romance, newly discovered supernatural abilities and a paranormal war that thrusts them right on the frontlines. They make new friends as well as enemies, form unlikely alliances, and learn that sometimes betrayal is much closer to home than they’d ever dare to imagine.

While I did think the book took a little bit to get into at first, once it started getting into the heart of the story, I was completely hooked. As with any other story–especially the first in a series–the “leading up” to the main storyline is mostly background information and explaining the setting, which is super important to the rest of the book. There are a couple of times where I wanted to shake the characters and tell them that they were being stupid, but honestly? They’re teenagers who are dealing with a massive amount of pressure and stress. Being a teenager is hard enough without feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Also, I was super impressed with how each character is written because they felt real and genuine. Even if you get frustrated with some decisions one of them makes or something stupid they say, once you get inside their head, you understand more about the reasons behind said actions. I especially appreciated that; even if you don’t agree with their reasoning, you get the chance to understand it.

All in all, I quite enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the next one. Also, I have a huge book crush on Finn and I wholeheartedly believe that he and Ava should be a thing. Just saying. ;P

Check this book out, and as always, if you do, please come back and let me know what your thoughts are! Happy reading <3

Okay.

Buckle up, friends, cause this is going to be a little different from the reviews I normally write–mostly because I honestly can’t say

a

damn

thing

about this book’s storyline without giving away spoilers. Ashley has been telling her readers that it’s best if you go in blind, and I’m here to tell you that is one hundred percent, without a doubt, true. You have to go into this story without knowing a thing about it or you won’t appreciate it as much.

So, instead of my usual summarizations, I’m just going to give you a reaction post.

Beginning: Oh. Okay. Huh. I didn’t expect that, but that’s cool.

A few chapters in: Oh, shit.

Middle of the book: Whoa, that escalated quickly. Welp, all righty then.

A few chapters from the end: Wait. Did he just–? What?!

At the end: What. The. Hell.

Reading the last page: Wtf did I just read.

Ten minutes after finishing the book: #)$&**^@*$^@%@*#!!!!

The next day: book … hangover … can’t … think … about … anything … else …

This is the worst book hangover I have had in a very long time. I knew it was going to be good because, well, Ashley f***ing Jade, but this? This was so brilliantly written that I just … ugh. I don’t even know, you guys. I’m still processing this book because it was nothing like what I expected. I knew Ms. Jade was a phenomenal writer, but she has really outdone herself with this one. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Now, I want to share just a few pieces of advice with you before you read this book …

  1. The most important thing to remember is to go into this book with an open mind. It’s filthy, it’s messy, there are a few taboo themes involved, and it’s not for the weak of heart.
  2. Don’t read spoilers, don’t post spoilers, don’t go searching for spoilers, etc. Just don’t. Trust me. I knew nothing of what to expect except for a few of the teasers that Ashley Jade shared and it was honestly the best mindf*ck ever.
  3. Make sure you have an extra pair of underwear nearby. You’ll thank me later.
  4. This is not a love story, so don’t expect one while you’re reading. But DO NOT let that deter you from reading this book.

Okay, that’s all I’m gonna say about it. 😉

He needs so much more from her. He needs everything.

 

Angelina: I am so damn done with being the chubby doormat for my soon-to-be ex-fiancé. I changed myself for every man in my life. Except Gray–my bodyguard.

Too bad he’s totally not interested in getting his kink on with me. No, he’s made it perfectly clear he’s only here to protect me.

We’ll just see about that.

Protect me from this, buddy. I’m going out on the town to find myself a good old-fashioned ménage.

 

Gray: For the love of all that is holy, I want Angel in my bed, tied up, blindfolded, begging me. I want her to be completely mine.

I can’t do that. Not yet. She isn’t ready for what I want from her.

I’ll break her.

Because I’m completely f–king broken.

It might kill me to watch her be with any other man.

But I won’t be her rebound.
