Who knew coming back home would lead to even more destruction. Jax left his uncle Rick and his twin brother Chase, because it was the right thing to do. Except of course he left behind someone who meant everything to him, the girl in question is Samantha. After being attacked at school the only thing to do was go home. Even though her aunt has always wanted her to end up with Chase who she never felt connected with. She always knew that deep down Jax was the one to make her happy.
What brought him back was Rick he knew about the attack at the school with Sam but knew he had to stay away because he had to hide what he was. Being a monster is a strong word but that is what he is, a demon. A decedent of Cain, with a inkling to torture those wrong doers, he is able to stop himself if only to satisfy the demon within. But being back in the same town he left all those years before is hard enough, seeing Sam hinging out with Chase starts up the demon to go farther than any torture, Chase's presence brings out the worst. With Rick going and Sam's attacker still gunning to finish the job, Jax must put aside what is may be wrong but feel oh so right.
I just couldn't help but love this story, Jax is the type you want to see be rescued himself, because when things are right you're not supposed to question it. Sam of course comes in and is all over him either telling him off or just saying what feels right she knows what she wants. What I liked though was that his demon side to me had a more charismatic feel to him, but at the same time you felt that these two were one and the same. I couldn't put it down, and instantly would have kicked a few demons myself. In honesty, you looking for a captivating character, Jax fits the bill and then some.
Contemplating on telling the love of your life you like them is hard enough throw in being kidnapped, you have the means of survival, even when your kidnappers are showing restraint and keeping you 'safe' doesn't mean it's the safe you need. Sofia just thought she was normal but when she is taken to a place the sun doesn't shine, and people with fangs anyone would be on the offense. Especially when she takes to the prince of darkness himself, Derek Novak. Because she is human she is in constant danger, and with escape doesn't mean she will be able to get back home. The only thing to count in is the princes' word and even for him it's hard enough.
Waking up 400 years later to find that your siblings woke you up because they couldn't keep the place in order. Derek's way didn't go through and the kidnappings of humans are just the one thing that changed. They are slaves their purpose is to be the meal. The one to open his eyes is Sofia, who also opened a part of the self he thought he had lost. Protecting her is the only thing preventing him from tearing into her skin. She challenges him and even though she is young it's her presence that changes his mind. But how long can Sofia stay and if given a chance would she leave Derek behind, or will a greater darkness come and split them apart forever.
A Shade of Vampire literally had me wondering what is to come and even though I would hate to be taken, would my kidnapper be so generous. I love vampire stories and this gave me a taste into a world I would consider venturing into. All we got was one shade of this story now for the others to let us know what Sofia and Derek do next, plus could there be light where there is darkness....more
Ever think the world we live in can change and something unexpected happen. Living in a post apocalyptic world is tough even for teens, the out breakEver think the world we live in can change and something unexpected happen. Living in a post apocalyptic world is tough even for teens, the out break happened and even though the US government swore to protect, the virus was just to much to keep secure. In Mortality, to better understand the effect, two sides of a story is told through the eyes of two different teens trying to survive. Savannah is the present, her group isn't usually the one to be sent out and gather supplies, but with the way times have been sand supplies limited, her group gets a opportunity to venture into Z's territory. Taking down zombies might be all make believe in our world, but with the outbreak survival is key. Along the way Cole shows up with wanting her help to protect him and hope for a future.
Zarah is the past, she tells us what happened and what the government tried to prevent, who knew one normal day of school and the next thing you see is a neighbor trying to tear your skin off. Getting to her parents is the main thing on her mind, of course without an idea of where they could be, getting to them could be tougher than she thought. Even though she would have never thought getting on a bike with a boy, that is the last thing she needs to be worried about. Of course it helps that Liam did smile at her before the world changed in those two seconds. But when the government offers a safe bet Zarah and Liam take what they can get, except of course they didn't know once bitten they turn into super smart Zs and that is more scarier than any thing.
Both Savannah and Zarah understand that with some help their course can change. This was an amazing story in that it reminded me of so many different zombie movies and it kept up with good story telling. Savannah had some skills and even though she is young her character saw development, and showed some strength in a lot of places. Zarah had strength also to venture on not knowing if her parents were alive, hope is strong and my guess she has that hope along her journey. I can not wait to see what else happens, so if your into Zs than this is definitely one for you to pick up....more
Even when fame comes with a fortune, it also comes with some drawbacks. Jared Quinn has everything, star on and off the field, but with his latest scandal threatening his career the teams representative comes with the idea of a fake marriage. Struggling to keep the art studio is tough for any artist but for Sheridan Harper losing the last piece she has of her grandmother isn't something she will let go easy. Meeting Jared wasn't in the cards but when a hot guy asks you out of course you go right. The thing is he can't be photographed because another story can be made up. It's not until the night they have that Sheridan has know idea what she was drawn into. With a binding contract for a one year marriage and a clause that can't be broken its hard not to break it. The two get hitched and even though she can't tell anyone, no one would believe her and she needs some help with her studio.
It's not until both Jared and Sheridan come to realize the clause isn't right to stop them and even though they didn't plan the next step they both can't live without the other. But with stories being twisted and the contract still binding can the two realize that it doesn't matter what others think and live with what they have or will the threat break them. With rules on and off the field it's hard not to want to break as many and you can and who isn't game for anything.
I instantly fell in love with Jared and Sheridan because this can happen. So many celebs could have fake marriages and than because of all the time spent together they can fall for each other. They both were drawn to each other and even without the clause they would have found a way to go on. I liked the fact that they both seemed so real and believable. I loved that even though I love football I fell in love with the game all over again. With Jared it's hard not to fall into his arms. I laughed so many times when Sheridan was thinking and she didn't think a guy like Jared cared was she so wrong. Jared was there even when he wasn't and she never had to doubt it. So if you like rule breaking and the game that comes along that you will enjoy this and wish you had a quarter back like Jared waiting for you on the field....more
