Synopsis

At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.

When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn't realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.

My Review


What would you guys say if I tell you that there´s nothing hotter than a Zombie?...
I know, I know, the answer would be “This chick is as mad as a hatter” and even though that might be true LOL!!! You guys need to read this book to know what I mean.
Kate Evangelista not only managed to create a new intake on our lovely and never gross favorite flesh eaters but she also managed  a romantic feel around them too, How would have thought that was possible?
Anyway, this book was amazing and coming from a girl that runs away every time someone tells her to read or watch anything zombie, it´s Def. something.
The characters are amazing; I loved every single one of them but OMG I have to say I’m totally Team Luka on this one and would love to see more from him on a very, very near future LOL!!! (Yes Kate I´m talking to you =D)
Demitri is just Hawt he´s my fav. Physical stereotype and I just drooled just from his description alone, but I was more attracted to Luka at the end LOL.
Phoenix is a girl that doesn´t know the meaning of self-preservation and actually knows what she wants and most of all she doesn´t turn into a Mary Sue when she meets drool worthy Demitri.
This book is action packed, romantic and funny, everything deliciously wrapped up with an amazing and fresh plot and some very interesting twists and turns.
You guys need to get your hands on this one and guess what here is your chance this book was early released by amazon so if you want to check it out click on the link below it´s totally worth it.

Synopsis

Madison Daniels has worshipped her brother's best friend since they were kids. Everyone thinks she and Chase Gamble would make the perfect couple, but there are two major flaws in their logic. 1) Chase has sworn off relationships of any kind, and 2) after blurring the line between friends and lovers for one night four years ago, they can't stop bickering.

Forced together for her brother's wedding getaway, Chase and Madison decide to call a truce for the happy couple. Except all bets are off when they're forced to shack up in a tacky 70’s honeymoon suite and survive a multitude of "accidents" as the family tries to prove their "spark" can be used than for more than fighting. That is, if they don't strangle each other first…


My Review

Holly Tamale this book was just hot; I can’t believe I read it in one sitting.
Maddie is a sweet pocket size woman that is madly head over heels in love with her brother best friend, the utterly sexy and dam right gorgeous Chase Gamble. 
Wow this book had my toes curling from beginning to end if that wasn´t chemistry I don’t know what else to call it. Chase just ooze sexual competence and is alluring as hell. I even bit my lip at time or two, this book was THAT good.
I need to confess that I read the wine cellar scene twice, just for the pleasure of it, that was so Hot that I think I’m going to read it again when I get home.
The only regret I have about this book is that it ended I so wanted to keep reading as Maggie and swoon worthy Chase did their business and hobba hobba .
Please J. Lynn Please tell me you are planning on doing one book for each Gamble brother cause OMG they are just prime Quality and fantasy material LOL…
Errrr *Fans herself* as I was saying in the most professional way *snickers* is that if you want to read something HOT you guys need to read this; WARNING this book is for adults only so there.
Can’t wait to read more from J. Lynn this was just AMAZING!!!

Waiting for Mercy By Shannon Dermott BOOK REVIEW

Language: English

Genre: Paranormal Romance YA

ASIN: B007UKNRRG

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars





Synopsis

What do you do when you’ve been to hell and back, literally? For Mercy, it meant the beginning of the end for everything. Love, Happiness, Life.

When the people important to her are thrown into danger and she is forced to choose who to save, what will Mercy do? When the demon within her has its own agenda, going to new lengths to fulfill it, how will she cope? And when a new nemesis arrives, with a sole focus to take what belongs to her, how will she survive?

Some situations make you stronger, some make you weak. She used to run from confrontation but the need to uncover secrets will harden her resolve to make new choices.

In the end, someone else will suffer the consequences. Who will be burned by her very existence? And what will become of everything she holds dear?

Mercy’s life wasn’t easy before and things aren’t getting easier now.


My Review

A while back I reviewed a book written by Shannon Dermot here is the link to that review
all I can say is that I loved Beg for Mercy and I was dying to see what happened next and OMG was I in for a HUGE surprise.
Waiting for Mercy had me thinking from page one I was all “what the hell is going on” first we have the all lovable and adorable Flynn this guy has attitude and style, he is a chick magnet and loves it but inside is insecure. My guess is that he feels lonely being an Incubus he can have every girl he wants, but can he ever find a girl that truly loves him and is not attracted to him just for his unnatural sex appeal?
He´s in love with Mercy but she´s his Best friend girlfriend and to top it all she also is his stepsister. What is a guy to do about that?
Then we have Luke he´s a charmer a chivalrous, good natured guy that loves Mercy above all and is willing to risk everything to be with her, but is he as good as he seems or there’s something else hiding behind those angelic eyes?
 Sebastian is a full breed demon that has his sight on Mercy as well, he´s another chick magnet and very dark in nature but at the same time he´s the only one that is actually truthful to her and  is willing to do what it takes to keep her safe.
I could go on and on about the guys on Mercy´s life we still have Paul and Tom the first her long time human best friend, who has been in love with her for years, the second is a huge enigma that I guess is going to have a huge impact on the way this series is going to develop.
Mercy´s life is crashing down and there´s no way for her to make it right her Succubus side is getting stronger and harder to control and at times it seems that the universe conspires against her.
I love this book I can´t say it was perfect I did find some punctuation problems but OMG by the end of the book I was sweating and crying going all “NO, NO, NO” the first part of the book is all about Mercy´s growth  her inner struggles and emotions but at some point  the book becomes a supernatural action packed full on war.
The ending is amazing and had me clicking my kindle like crazy because I was sure Shannon couldn’t do that to me lol!!! There had to be another chapter somewhere lol!!
Anyway if you read Beg for Mercy and Love it you are gonna adore Waiting for Mercy; if not what are you waiting for, go get them lol!!!
I rate this book 5 stars cause aside from the little problems that I found I’m just dying to keep reading and I was so into the story that at some point I didn’t even notice the punctuation problems anymore lol!!!!

Taste by Kate Evangelista BOOK TRAILER & EXCERPT REVEAL

Hi guys, a couple of days back I was contacted by Kate Evangelista, about having an excerpt and book trailer reveal.
You guys know me, I was all professional an stuff, and SQUEEE!!! Like a girl cause I’m
such a huge fan of Kate´s Blog.
So I’m going to post some things about our lovely Kate and then…(dramatic drum roll)…we are going to take a look at the trailer and excerpt reveal.
Hope you guys enjoy, I know that I did.


When Kate Evangelista was told she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing: entered medical school. After realizing she wasn't going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department of her university and never looked back. Today, she is in possession of a piece of paper that says to the world she owns a Literature degree. To make matters worse, she took Master's courses in creative writing. In the end, she realized to be a writer, none of what she had mattered. What really mattered? Writing. Plain and simple, honest to God, sitting in front of her computer, writing. Today, she has four completed Young Adult novels.

Love stories. I love reading them. I love writing them. Life is a series of relationships that we have with people, and a love-relationship is one of the most fascinating because it runs a gamut of emotions. If one cannot find love, be it love of self, love for another, love for life, then what are we here for?

For the Excerpt Reveal i have something extra for you guys, somewhere among this lines is a link  to a super exclusive excerpt, so read carefully and enjoy

Excerpt Reveal

I sat up and followed Calixta’s gaze upward. I rubbed my eyes. I didn’t know what I was seeing at first. A statue? ­My brain refused to snap together coherent thoughts.  I didn’t realize I’d fallen so close to one of the garden benches until I stared up at the boy that sat on one. He was strikingly beautiful. His tumble of blonde hair curled just above his sculpted cheekbones. He wore a silk shirt and a loosened cravat, like he’d become bored while dressing and decided to leave himself in disarray. His ivory skin and frozen position was what had me mistaking him for something carved from marble by Michelangelo. Then he sighed—a lonely, breathy proof of life. If I had to imagine what Lucifer looked like before he fell from heaven, the boy on the bench would certainly fulfill that image. My brain told me I had to look away, but I couldn’t.
“Luka,” Calixta said again, her voice unsure, almost nervous. It no longer contained the steel and bite she had threatened me with, which made me wonder who the boy was.
He leaned on his hands and crossed his legs, all the while keeping his eyes fixed on the night sky. His movements spoke of elegance and control. I’d encountered many people with breeding before, but his took on the air of arrogance and self-assuredness of someone used to getting what he wanted when he wanted it.
I only realized I’d been holding my breath when my lungs protested. I exhaled. My heart sputtered and restarted with a vengeance. Luka tore his gaze away from the stars and settled it on me. I’d expected pitch-black irises, like the other Night Students, but blue ice stared back at me.
“Human,” he whispered.
He reached out, and with a finger, followed an invisible trail down my cheek. I stiffened. His touch, cooler than Demitri’s, caused warm sparks to blossom on my face. He lifted his finger to his lips and licked its tip. He might as well have licked me from the way my body shivered.
Luka’s curious gaze held mine. “Leave us,” he said, but not to me.
“But—” Calixta protested like a spoiled child.
He spoke in a language I hadn’t heard before, remaining calm yet firm. The words had a rolling cadence I couldn’t quite follow, like rumbling thunder in the distance. They contained a harsh sensuality. The consonants were hard and the vowels were long and lilting.
Footsteps retreated behind me.
Luka reached out again.
It took me a minute to realize he wanted to help me up. I hesitated. He smiled. I smiled back timidly and took his hand, completely dazzled. Even with my uniform soaked from melted snow, I didn’t feel cold—all my attention was on him and the way his callused hand felt on mine. Without moving much from his seated position, he helped me stand.
“What’s your name?” he asked. He had a voice like a familiar lullaby. It filled my heart to the brim with comfort.
I swallowed and tried to stop gawking. “Phoenix.”
“The bird that rose from the ashes.” Luka bent his head and kissed the back of my hand. “It’s a pleasure meeting you.”
My cheeks warmed. My head reeled, not knowing what to think. I couldn’t understand why I felt drawn to him. And the strange connection frightened me.
From behind, someone gripped my arms and yanked me away before I could sort out the feelings Luka inspired in me. I found myself behind a towering figure yet again. Recognizing the blue-black silk for hair tied at the nape, relief washed over me. Calixta hadn’t come back to finish me off.
Demitri’s large hand wrapped around my wrist. Unlike the night before, no calm existed in his demeanor. He trembled like a junky in need of a fix. The coiled power in his tense muscles vibrated into me.
“What are you doing here?” Demitri asked.
I didn’t know he’d spoken to me until I saw his expressionless profile. I sighed.
Phoenix.”
I flinched. The ruthless way he said my name punched all the air out of me. “You owe me answers,” I said with as much bravado as I could muster.
“I owe you nothing.” He glared. “In fact, you owe me your life.”
“I don’t think so.”
Ignoring my indignation, he faced Luka, who’d remained seated on the bench during my exchange with Demitri. “Why is she with you, Luka?”
“I wasn’t going to taste her, if that’s what you’re implying,” Luka said. “Although, she is simply delicious. I wouldn’t mind if you left us alone.”
There it was again. Taste. The word that kept coming up between these Night Students and I was connected to it in an increasingly uncomfortable way. To taste meant to sample, but what? My flesh? They had to be joking because the alternative wasn’t funny.
“The sins of the father …” Demitri left his sentence unfinished.
Luka’s smile shifted into a snarl. “Obey my command.” His chin lifted. “Kneel.”
Demitri’s stance went rigid. His grip tightened around my wrist.
Okay, weird just got weirder. Why would Luka want Demitri to kneel before him? I thought back to Eli and the others bowing to Demitri when he questioned them, but they didn’t kneel. Seriously? Were they all living on a different planet or something?
Kneel.” Luka’s detestable smirk made his features sinister rather than angelic. The real Lucifer: a fallen angel.
Without letting go of my wrist, Demitri knelt down on one knee and bowed his head, his free hand flat at the center of his chest. “Your command has been obeyed,” he said formally.
Luka nodded once.
Demitri stood up and pulled me toward the school without telling me where we were going. Not having the time to thank Luka for saving me from Calixta, I risked a glance back. Luka smiled at me. His smile spoke of whispers, secrets, and promises to be shared on a later date.

About the Author

In Shayne's first year out of high school she penned, co-directed, and starred in the feature film 'The Incubus', a paranormal romance, which obtained distribution and screened in over fifteen theaters across South Florida among major theater chains such as Regal, AMC, and Cinemark. 'The Incubus' has also obtained a passionate fanbase of over 100,000 girls online and has garnered the attention of reporters from the Miami Herald, CBS News, and NPR Radio.

Leighton also starred alongside Scream Queen, Tara Cardinal, in the film 'Legend of the Red Reaper' which will make its world debut at the 2012 AFM in Los Angeles.
Now, 21-year-old Leighton is excited to release her debut young adult novel series, 'Of Light and Darkness', set in contemporary Prague, as well as developing the film adaptation of the novel series starring Michael Welch from the 'Twilight Saga' and Cassie Scerbo from ABC Family's 'Make It Or Break It' and 'Teen Spirit'. The novel series is represented by internationally renowned literary manager, Joel Gotler of IPG

Book Synopsis

When one human stands before an army of impossible obstacles, the likelihood of overcoming them in this coming-of-age modern fairytale may result in war between light and darkness.

Abandoned as an infant in Prague, naive and strong-willed Charlotte Ruzikova was raised by one of the last Vampires left alive. As a human, she knows no other home than the one nestled deep in the woods of Eastern Europe, where Witches drew spells of enchantment, Phasers threw tea parties, and Elves are the closest in kin. Charlotte has lived her life in the dark with her Guardian, content to having him to herself and reveling in his attention, until she's realizes she wants more...

Resident medical doctor and Vampire, Valek Ruzik fears the day his ward would come of age and blossom into a fine woman, and he is forced to confront his own motives as time is of the essence once his past catches up to him, and their lives become endangered...

As genocide and war threatens their secret society, the dictator in power is ready to wipe out Valek's race, but Charlotte will not allow that to happen. Fighting for the only one she's ever loved and truly believed in, she will do whatever it takes to save their love...before the sun comes up and light takes over.

My Review

Over the years there´s been quite a change in the way Vampires are viewed, from the blood thirsty undead, aristocrat sexy killer, Aliens, to the glittery vegetarian type. Vampires have been around for a very long time.
Although the myth started somewhere around the 18th century (I think) and was mostly about men coming out of their grave to feed on the blood of his loved ones, now we face a more sappy description of them.
I have to say that in between is a great place for me, I don’t really like the cruel, evil, bloodsucking, crazed, ugly psycho-vampirenor the sparkly type.
See below for clarification LOL!!!! 
                             

Yeah i like my Vampires true to their nature but sexy as hell, hey im still a girl!!!! LMAO
anyway, why did I started this subject?, quite easy actually, cause I found a book that gave me exactly that a cross between Anne Rice and J.R.Ward (without the adult content of course) and I loved every minute of it.
Valek is a Vampire, a real Vampire, the suck your blood until you die, the sun can kill me kinda Vampire. It´s so refreshing to read a Ya book that actually embraced the old dark nature but still manage to capture the romantic and sensual aspect as well.
Charlotte is a human girl, a very naive but strong willed human girl, who was rescued as an infant by Valek and was raised by him in an occult city,(where the supernatural creatures live) she knows what he is and accepts him as such, she even hunts for him bringing people to his door so he can feed. She lives surrounded by supernatural creatures, elves, witches, animated ragdolls; you name it this book has it.
The plot is amazing, fast passed and with twist and turns that leave you glued to the pages, it has action, romance, and angst, has very funny moments too.
Shayne Leighton is very descriptive and manages quite easily to take you in a full out journey through Prague, I swear I could see the city and smell the forest.  I don’t even know how long it took me to read the book all I know is that I did it on one sitting; it´s fantastic, enthralling  and complex too, and please don’t get me started on the villains, OMG that was magnificent. .. (wish I could say more but you know how much I hate spoilers LOL)
Anyway I am quite a fan of Vampire Novels; if it has a Vampire in it most likely I already read it or is on my TBR list; I was growing tired of the more romantic version of the Vamps I love, but this book is amazing, I was delighted with Valek and Lottie and the changes their relationship was going through and appalled by everything that happens to them.
The only thing I wasn´t completely in love with, is the fact that the characters weren’t as developed as they should, but this is Shayne´s Leighton Debut Novel and for a first book is just simply awesome, in fact is so good that is being made a movie.

and here is the Promo Video

Five by Christie Rich

Rayla Tate was just a child when her mother disappeared from her life forever. Raised by her aunt Grace in a small town, she has lived an extremely sheltered life. Unknown to her, she was hidden from the fae who live secretly among us. Descended from an ancient blood-line of Elementals, only she has the power to crown the first fae high-king.

Sick of provincial living and the dictates of her aunt, Rayla flees the safety of her home and runs away to college with her best friend. Unfortunately, excitement over her newfound freedom is short-lived when she finds herself being chased by a mysterious stranger on her way to school. She is drawn to him immediately; however, she somehow manages to resist the compulsion she feels. As he disappears into the night, she is certain he hasn't gone far.

Rayla struggles to deal with the encounter while adapting to her new environment. To make matters worse, Aunt Grace reveals that Rayla will be hunted by a pack of fae lords, each hoping to claim her power for his own. She soon finds herself surrounded by stunning men. Could they be fae, or is this just normal college life? More importantly, why does she feel drawn to each one of them? What dark power do they hold over her? She must quickly learn to fend off these beautiful and seductive pursuers using whatever means necessary or find herself lost to the fae world forever

Dark Matter by Christie Rich
 

Rayla Tate’s dreams for the future shattered when she discovered she was an Elemental capable of manipulating matter. Thrust, once again, into the magical fae realm of Faeresia, she has an important choice to make. But now that she has Heath to contend with, deciding between Zach and Luke is the least of her concerns. Tall, dark and lethal to her will, her attraction to Heath eclipses all she has experienced with any other lord, but he is using compulsion to wear her down. If only she could trust her feelings?

In a desperate attempt to escape Heath, she accepts the help of a little troll and finally gets what she wants; however, her relief is short lived. Things go terribly wrong when a dark force closes in on her, threatening to steal her burgeoning power before she even has a chance to test her abilities. Now, with Rayla as their captive, the Order will stop at nothing to create a male Elemental, and willing or not, Rayla is the key.

Caught up in the age-old battle for dominance between human and fae, only one question matters to her now—will she be able to save those she loves most without losing herself in the process? Or will she be forever haunted by the choices she alone can make?

About the Author


John Corwin has been making up stuff all his life. As a child he would tell his sisters he was an alien clone of himself and would eat tree bark to prove it. For John, making stuff up was about one thing: teasing his sisters.

In middle school, everything changed. A class assignment to string random words together into a coherent story led to the birth of Fargo McGronsky, a young boy with anger management issues whose dog, Noodles, had been hit by a car. The short story was met with loud acclaim from classmates and a great gnashing of teeth by his English teacher. At this point, John realized that making stuff up had broader uses.

Years later, after college and successful stints as a plastic food wrap repairman and a toe model for several well-known men's magazines, John once again decided to put his overactive imagination to paper for the world to share.


My Review

Take a hopeless romantic, give him sexual super powers and you get a one of a kind ride through paranormal lane.

Justin Case is not your regular nerd, he´s got man boobs, a low self esteem and the most amazing sense of humor ever; to top that he discovers he´s half incubus at the same time that a chain of supernatural events disrupts his life in more ways than one.

What happens when a Nerd is paired with a Smoking hot Ninja Vampire Goth Girl...?

True love can be found on the most unlikely places, but is love strong enough to conquer hate, political stands, racism and unnatural differences?

Sweet Blood of mine has it all, an underdog journey of self discovery, action, romance and magic.
This books is a must read; John Corwin´s unique writing style is sure to trap you into the story and Justin´s journey from zero to hero will definitively make you fall in love with him.
SBoM will have you laughing out loud at the wee hours of the morning…

A neutron walks into a bar and asks how much for a drink. The bartender replies “For you no Charge”…

Hehehe sorry couldn´t help myself I’m a Sheldon Fan but I swear “I am not crazy; my mother had me tested” you need to get your hands on this enthralling book, you won’t regretted.

John Corwin did it again, he made me fall in love with a story that has me cheering for the sexy geek guy to experience love under the must adverse circumstances.
