The last person seventeen-year-old Eleanor Livingston wants to see on the elevator—let alone get stuck with—is her ex-boyfriend Travis, the guy she's been avoiding for five months.

Plagued with the belief that when she speaks the truth, bad things happen, Elly hasn’t told Trav anything. Not why she broke up with him and cut off all contact. Not what happened the day her father returned from his deployment to Afghanistan. And certainly not that she misses him and still thinks about him everyday.

But with nowhere to hide and Travis so close it hurts, Elly’s worried she won’t be able to contain her secrets for long. She’s terrified of finally revealing the truth, because she can’t bear to watch a tragedy befall the boy she still loves.

Allison 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.

Does he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?

Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they’ve known nothing about, Amazons Inc. If that isn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.

Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn't be told of his Other identity. Now, Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

Love & Loss: The Coven of Secrets (The Coven of Secrets) by Trinity Ambrose

Love and Loss


Jo Kelley is not your average college student, but she's trying to be. Years in foster care have left her cautious. She doesn't let many people in and there are very few people she would ever trust with her secrets…namely that she sees impossible things, things that terrify her and make her question her own sanity.
But Jo is putting all that aside, and embarking on a typically American rite of passage… spring break. With her best friend and her new boyfriend, Jo is setting out for adventure. Little does she know that her life and the lives of everyone around her are going to change dramatically.
There's something dark buried in Jo's past, secrets and an unfathomable evil that are clawing their way to the surface. Intent on destroying Jo and the rest of the world with her, Jo will have to come out of the proverbial broom closet and use all of her as yet untapped power to battle the forces of darkness and save the people she loves.


Tragic Accident Claims Two, Infant Only Survivor
The first witness on the scene claims to have only seen the family’s blue station wagon on the side of the road when he happened upon the accident. The vehicle appeared all beaten up on the driver's side and its lights remained on so the driver had slowed to see if there was help needed. After investigating the car, one Larry Flinch noticed a small baby clapping its hands, still buckled in the back seat. The father’s body, draped down towards the child in one last attempt to comfort her, the mother laid lifeless yards away. After the tragedy, we contacted Mr. Flinch and asked him what his recollection of the accident was.
“Well, of course I called the police right away but being by myself, I didn’t know what to do with the toddler. After seeing she was unharmed, I stood right outside her window until help arrived. I was scared to move her after what she must have been through. She didn’t seem scared at all considering; such a brave kid.”
Indeed, this sole survivor was found to be unscathed and was immediately taken away by Social Services where they will see if there is a next of kin. The parents, later said to be Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kelley, have no family in the area that they have found as of yet but the police are still looking into the matter. No one has come forth in what is being called a “hit and run” but police have evidence that they wish not to discuss at this time.
This reporter was truly heart broken by the sight of the wreckage out on HWY 5 but out of this great loss there is still a life that was spared and it makes you feel that God must really have a plan for this sole survivor.



I suck and haven't been on schedule with my reading :( This book is going to be read this week, so as soon as I have it read I will post my review as Part 2 for this post!!



“Were you not listening? That kind of magic has a price. Because of what we did, your parents are both dead!” Dawn raised from the pavement and gripped my shoulders. “No good can ever come from that kind of magic. There just has to be another way.”
“The only way for us all to be free of Loki is to destroy him. Unless you have another story you’re not telling me with a spell that will vanquish him for good.” I had my hands on my hips and I was bent down in order to look her right in the eyes when a blast of her power hit me. It was like a dry sand storm had just smacked me in the chest and I had to rub my eyes to rehydrate them.
“You listen to me!” Dawn had her finger pointed right at my chest and she was taking quick jabs to my sternum. “I may not be your Mother but I will not see things end for you the way it did for her! If I could protect you on my own, I would take you away from here and hide you till next month comes and goes!” She was now making wild gestures with her hands. “Screw Steve; screw the Coven! I just want to keep you safe…I owe Sunny that much…” her words trailed off as she turned her back on me and started walking towards the woods.
“Hey, where are you going! I’m not a child you know, I can take care of myself!” I yelled at her back side. She turned around so quick the motion was a blur and she put her hands out in front of her. Another dry sand blast hit me square in the chest and I flew back a short distance to land on my butt hard in the grass.
“Jo!” I heard Marty yell from somewhere behind me but I ignored her as I scrambled off the ground. I looked where my aunt had been standing but she was no where to be seen. What the heck had just happened?

Flawed Perfection by Cassandra Giovanni ~ Release Blitz

Flawed Perfection

by Cassandra Giovanni

Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player--he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.
River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brother's dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.
Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl's hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.
Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself--or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all...

I nodded my head and watched as Adam’s hand lingered on the neck of the Ibanez™ before he picked it back up and slipped the strap over his shoulder.
I sat on the edge of the bed as he began to play without an amplifier.
The noise was tinny without the electric part hooked up but that didn’t matter. Adam’s fingers moved effortlessly from fret to fret as he strummed the guitar. His head nodded ever so slightly to the beat and his bare foot tapped the floor as he closed his eyes and a smile formed on his lips.
I stood and placed my hands around his neck, yet he continued to play, nod his head and tap his foot with eyes closed. The only change was on his lips as they crept into the seductive grin.
I leaned into him, letting my hands comb through the hair on the back of his head as my breath washed over his lips.
Still nothing. The guitar continued to hum with his talent.
I let my lips hover over his, then let them wander over the soft skin of his neck and up the stubble of his chin. The beat remained smooth, undisturbed as the strings squealed and he deepened the riff.
I paused as my lips reached his again, lingering at the corner of his mouth where the cold metal of his lip ring teased me just as much as his fingers on the guitar.
I let my mouth run over the metal until it caught in my teeth and I sucked it in.
Finally, his body reacted tensing as he groaned—but his playing didn’t cease, didn’t change. He still resisted, hand strumming a tease over the strings next to the skin of my belly.
His mouth responded to mine as I let the ring and his lip slowly slip away from me. That was it— the guitar spun to his back and he yanked my hips to his own.
“I need you to play me like that guitar,” I gasped as his hand tilted my head and his tongue ran over my trembling neck.
His other hand drifted down my torso.
“Good, because I wasn’t done with my song,” he growled into my ear.

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

"Constantly entertaining...the narrative sizzles with as much tension as romance."

Kirkus Reviews on White Hot Kiss
And...Don't forget to check out the first book in The Dark Elements Series,


White Hot Kiss


One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Author: Sarah Darlington
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
He Belongs With Me

Identical twins, Maggie and Clara Ryder, both grew up with Leo Maddox, billionaire playboy, apparent alcoholic, and heir to his grandfather's world-famous Maddox hotel empire. Their roles were cemented long ago: Maggie, as his best friend and Clara as his childhood nemesis.

But when a simple twist of fate changes everything and both girls start to fall for the lean, mean, ridiculously sexy and seemingly spoiled Leo... which girl will win his heart?

Throw in a little mischief, drama, and one smoking-hot bartender and lines are sure to blur. But one thing's for certain, neither good-girl Maggie nor rebellious Clara will be satisfied until they each figure out where they belong. 

About the Author:
