 Maggie Young had the market on normal. Normal friends, normal parents, normal grades...normal life.

Until him.

Clayton Reed was running from his past and an army of personal demons that threatened to take him down. He never thought he had a chance at happiness.

Until her.

Maggie thought their love could overcome anything. Clay thought she was all he needed to fix his messy life.

That together, they could face the world.

But the darkness is always waiting.

Sometimes the greatest obstacle to true love is within yourself.
Warning: This book is for adults only due to the nature of the plot.

This book is a tough cookie to swallow, not because the book is bad, not at all. The writing is fantastic, the author truly knows what nerves to push in order to make you submerge in the story, but the topic is so dark and actually true, that it took me a while to wrap my head around it.

The book is about Maggie May a perfect girl that lives in the perfect neighborhood, which has the perfect parents and friends. She is bored of her perfect little life and when a new student with less than the perfect attitude appears at her perfect school she is drawn to him.

Clay is a very troubled guy with nothing but the worst of the worst, the exact opposite of Maggie he is drawn to her cause she represents all the good he has never had.

When I finished this book, I read lots of reviews to see what people thought of it, I´m weird like that =D; and I noticed that people either really liked the book or they hated it, there´s no middle ground with it.

People complain that the decisions Maggie made where too juvenile and that if she had talked to her parents or friends, lots of stuff could have been prevented. Really???

This girl is 17, hormone ridden and lets be truthful here, when we were 17 and your parents told you not to do stuff, more than likely you would do it and if you had a boy/girlfriend but your friends didn´t like him/her you ditched your friends cause you where in love and they don’t understand what you feel; no one does.

Because when you are seventeen you feel in the top of the world, nothing can harm you and you are freaking superwoman.

That´s what this book is about, decision made by teens that think (like all teens do) that they hold all the truths to the world.

It´s a really good book if you ask me, not what I´m used to read but really good none the less.
It was really hard to read through, cause I felt sorry for Mags and Clay; he ´s not a bad person he is a sick boy in dire need of love and medical help and She was a girl “in love” with a guy that had to many issues to be having a relationship.

Girls should know by now that if your boyfriend is violent: jealous and/or dominant behavior and verbal abuses you, it doesn´t mean he loves you more, it means that you are in trouble and you should get the fuck away as fast as you can and talk to you parents about it.

That is not a healthy relationship.

All in all I really liked it, because it shows some hard truths that we should all open our eyes to.

1.- Parents need to take care of your children: there´s no amount of toys or nannies that can replace your parents love and for Pete´s sake your fucking job or social status is not more important than your children.

2.- turning yourself into an ostrich is not going to solve any problems, they´re going to be there once you take your head out of the sand only worse times 100.

3.- Mental Illness is nothing to play with and people that has them need help. They are not evil they are sick and they need specialized care.

4.- No matter how much you think you know your children, they will have secrets from you cause there´s no teen that’s 100% comfortable sharing everything with her/his parents specially sexual topics.

5.- If you push you points of view to a teen too hard, you are going to push him/her away, so instead of having the opportunity of helping when they have a problem must likely you´ll be the last to know.

6.- Good friends are something to be cherished, always try to be friends with your son/daughter best friends; you never know what you can learn from them or need their help.

7.- No matter what stupid decision your son/daughter took, you are all they have and even though they tell you they wish you to back off, the secretly need you and want you to care and be there first row and center to pick them up when they fall down.

I've been writing since I was a little kid. I've always gotten lost in the stories going on in my head. I've just finally started doing something more than thinking about them.

I'm the author of Irresistible Fear, the first in a paranormal romance trilogy about a girl and her demon boyfriend. I have also recently published my first contemporary romance book Find You in the Dark. A dark story about the love between a girl and boy with bi-polar disorder. I have an upcoming contemporary romance called Bad Rep, to be released before the end of the year.

I spent ten years as a counselor for at risk teens and children. First working at a Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault program and then later a program for children with severe emotional and mental health issues. My former clients and their stories continue to influence every aspect of my writing.

I recently moved to England and am trying to get used to driving on the other side of the road, eating fish and chips and all things British :-)

K Books
If you want to get an honest opinion of what a book is about without a single spoiler, but with all the information and passion a true, dedicated blogger can accomplish, you guys should def. follow K-Books, everything you want to know a bout a book is there.

Soooo, this time I decided to to a list of the best of the best I read this year, I already did my best  bloggers of 2012, (Read above LOL) so now here are my lists.

The Lux series is by far one of the best series I´ve had the pleasure to read, one book after another, there´s amazing writting, world building, great characters a fantabulous plot and it has my number one book boyfriend of all times.
 This series is really close to my heart, not only the writting is sheer perfection but I love this author so very much. This is a finished series that had my toes curling on many, many ocations and had my devoted attention, no matter what I was reading or doing; if a new book was published I drooped everything to read this.
 Yes, I know Ii have two series from the same author, nut can you really blame me?? it´s JLA what where you expecting??? she is an amazing story teller and it´s only natural that I adore every single book she writes. This series has lots of action
Do I need to say why???, this series is original, fresh and so cool that the first book comes out as a movie next year. The author created anamazing world, I was hooked since book one, I love the characters and I promise to be the first one on the line for the movie premier =D
whant to know why I love this one??? well all I can say is Kale!!!! yumm, yumm and also is a freaking amazing series. I love the characters, I love the plot, the writting style is superb, full of action and very romantic.
  This series is fanfreakingtastic, if you love PNR and UF this is the series for you it has everything, wiches, demons, hellhounds it´s very well written and executed. The Author created an amazing world within our own that trapped me from the get go.


This book made me cry like a baby, there where parts of the story that broke my heart apart and I sobbed an everything. I don´t think there is enough praise that can slightly put into words how good this book is.
This book is amazingly well written, the Author has a terrific way to show you the world everything is set into; you submerge in the story so easily due to the descriptiveness without being sofocated by it.

In one word it was perfect, well accomplished and heart shaterring, that, by the type of story I guess was the main goal.

Guys this book is full of adrenaline, gritty, fast paced, it builds anticipation and has your emotions running at 100000 per hour. The suspense drived me to the edge time and time again.
I love Lisa´s writting style and her world building, the plot is 100% perfect and sure as hell Lisa knows how to make all her female readers fall head over hells with her characters.

It was impossible for me to pick just one cover so here are the 10 covers I liked the most this year. some I liked for the colors other cause it truly showed what the book was about, the one thing I did noticed is that many of the cover where created by Regina Wamba from Mae I design


This year I found three authors that won the Best of the Best statuson my blog and my heart.
If you guys haven´t heard from them you should start stalking them now!!!
Jennifer L. Armentrout
Author of the Covenant Series and the Lux series among others
H.D. Gordon
Author of the Alexa Montgomery Saga
Jus Accardo
Author of the Denazen Series
Here is a list of my top six book boyfriends, this guys all have unique qualities that on my book makes them perfect, at least for me =D
this guy with his dreamy eyes and his attitude had me drooling over him like 90% of the book. I have to come clean here and say that I was Team Seth but not anymore, cause now I know that there can´t be no one better for Alex than Aiden.
Chad is my kind of guy, bad boy, with a sinful body, totally sexy and he knows it and owns it. He´s also the super star pitcher for Nationals; he just have one problem, he doesn´t know how to play by the rules, ohh and he’s a self-centered arss… did I say one problem??? .. I meant two LOL!!!
 Daemon is and will always be my #1 book crush I love his snark, witty, sexy overbearing attitude, but smexy, lovable, flirty, romantic Daemon, OMG!!! I couldn´t even think and I totally understand why Katy was a drooling mess during the book, I would be too.
 Kale is so cute, adorable and innocent that is completly HAWT , I don´t know how Dez do it,I would turn into pudding just looking at his eyes. He has an amazing body and a deep voice (in my head he does LOL) did I mention the killer touch???
 Kayden sweet, sexy, powerful, lovable, one of a kind warrior; he´s as always, the person/character that I would like to stand beside me in battle, cause if Kayden, the Libra, the Brocken, stands beside you; you know you are standing up for something worth fighting for.
 OMFG who would have thoutgh that an MMA fighter could be so hawt, delicious, sexy, drop dead gorgeous… *breaths in breaths out* He really is HAWT. *fans herself*

What I liked the most was the fact that even though Reid has this whole bad guy attitude and looks going on, he truly is one of a kind, he is completly trust worthy, dependable, romantic and super, super sweet.
Without a doubt it was
Redemption as a series finale is in one word PERFECT!!!, there´s no other way to describe it, it´s just perfect. H.D. Gordon somehow manages to make you fly as high as the moon one page and makes you beg for mercy while tearing you to shreds on the next.
Redemption is the kind of book that will be on my mind for time and time to come
It doesn´t need explanation, it involves Daemon Black!!!
“Time seemed to slow, every second stretching out before me, tantalizing and torturing every breath I took. Waiting, wanting to show him whatever he was looking for as his eyes darkened to a deep green. His face strained, as if he were waging an internal battle. Something in his eyes made me feel very unsure.
I knew the second he made up his mind. He took a deep breath and his beautiful eyes closed. I felt his breath against my cheek, slowly moving to my lips. I knew I should pull back. He was bad, bad news. But my own breath caught in my throat. His lips were so close to mine, I desperately wanted to meet him halfway, to rush forward to test if his lips were as pillow soft as they looked.
“Hey guys!” Dee called out”  

"Magnificent, beautiful emotion exploded in me when our lips touched, and I was surprised when I felt my desperateness matched by his. His strong arms wrapped around me so tightly that it may have been painful if not for the circumstances. And, everything, all of me, all of the things that made me who I am, came slamming back into me with so much force that I felt as though the rain falling over me was sizzling off my skin.
 I’m not sure how long it lasted, but I was keenly aware of how soft his lips felt against mine; how right. And I didn’t let him go until I felt my monster settle back down inside of me, defeated, and yielding to the embrace of my Libra; my Kayden.
But, when I tried to pull back, Kayden didn’t let me. His hands found my face and kept my lips where they were, pressed perfectly against his. I didn’t resist, for whatever reason, right then, he seemed to need me just as much as I needed him.
When the fire finally eased between us, we lingered there, in each other’s arms, and for the first time all day I was grateful for the rain, because a tear somehow escaped my eye, and flowed down my already wet cheek."


"No. Please, no. Please, be a coincidence. He could´ve choked on his gum. But he brought his hand upto his throat. He couldn´t breathe. His hand reached for his chest. I watched the life drain out of his eyes, knowing I was the cause of it,"
Post Apocalypse  YA Dystopian
In a desperate attempt to escape destruction decades earlier, humankind was forced underground, into the depths of the earth, creating a new society called the Tri-Realms.
Again it was to hard to pick just one, so here are my top picks in random order LOL, every single one has an unique quality that made me fall in love with it.


Without a doubt, hands down the best publisher ever is
Spencer Hill Press
They have the best titles, they are close to their readers, they know how to treat bloggers and authors, they now the rules of the game and know how to play it right. They might me a small publisher now, but they will be one of the bigger publishers ever in no time.
And finally here is a list of the books I´m dying to get my hands on. 2013 can´t get here fast enough.
(This is a list of books that already have cover art)
Books without cover art will be listed afterwards LOL, but I´m exited for those too!!!!!!

Sara had always been careful.

She never spoke of magic, never associated with those suspected of handling magic, never thought of magic, and never, ever, let anyone see her mark. After all, the last thing she wanted was to end up missing, like her father and brother.

Then, a silver elf pushed his way into Sara's dream, and her life became anything but ordinary.

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself
