The population at large does not know this fact but the FBI does. For fear that one day vampires would try and rise up and over throw humanity the FBI has been prepping and double dealing behind the Vampire Queen's back by creating their own vampires. But now the vampires the FBI were working with have gone on their own and started turning others without the FBI's consent.
That's where Ana and Ty come in. Ty was one of those turned against his will by those Rogue vampires. He hates what he has become and fears that one day the monster within will one-day take over completely. Ana was once in a gang but has since tried everything to turn her life around, but in the process has lost contact with her sister who she loves more than anyone in the world. Ty works for the Belladonna agency who are trying to bring down these Rogue vampires, and Ana is his way undercover. She has old gang connections that surprisingly lead to what is happening with the Rogue Vampires.
For her help Ty offers Ana the one thing she wants, her sister. He has knowledge of where her sister is now which is something she desperately wants. But along with her where abouts Ty also tells her the her sister may not be who she believes she is, and that she may be involved with the Rogue vampires. Ty and Ana connect with each other on a level that neither has experienced. The both crave family and while working together they both come to realize that the family they are looking for might be in each other. What started out as a job has progressed to something more, but for two people who believe being alone is safest trusting someone may be the hardest thing these two face.
This book definitely brought up a lot of threads that were left open for future books within the series. This book was an interesting read and I liked it. I would have liked more flushing out of Ty's and Ana's relationship as well as Ana and her sister's relationship. I never fully understood how they became estranged and what drove her sister to be so angry at her.
I would definitely will be curious to see how this series progresses. ...more

Savannah, her father, and her father's pregnant girlfriend re-locate her senior year to a high end riding stable. It's the chance of a lifetime for her father and with an unexpected baby on the way the whole family needs these new jobs to work out.
Savannah has grown up around horses her entire life. She understands them in a way that she hasn't ever really understood people. So when she gets to this new stable she wants to start being an exercise rider so that she can save up and start building a career. What she didn't expect was for Jack Goodwin to ride up and question everything Savannah thought she once wanted. Where she once thought that being an exercise rider was her future, she now questions herself and begins to want more for herself.
That more includes Jack, but there are certain expectations that go along with being the rich stable owner-to-be and Jack might not be willing to risk all that for a girl he just met. He and Savannah have an instant connection, but a lifetime of being told certain things and being expected to meet the expectations of his parents is a lot of pressure for Jack to take in. He wants Savannah but knows there might be a cost and he is nervous to make that leap.
This was a fun, light entertaining book about a girl a boy and how meeting the right person can change everything you ever thought you wanted. I haven't read any of the other books in this series so this can definitely be read as a stand alone. I believe previous characters did show up in this book and were mentioned but not anything that was pivotal to the story....more
Lorrie has suffered two unimaginable losses. First her mother was murdered by her step-father and everyone at her small college knows it. Secondly herLorrie has suffered two unimaginable losses. First her mother was murdered by her step-father and everyone at her small college knows it. Secondly her father committed suicide after failing to cope with the loss of Lorrie's mother. Lorrie has decided she needs to return to a life of normalcy and re-enrolls in college. She wants to focus on her studies and get back as much of the person she used to be as possible.
Hunter wasn't part of that plan, one look at him and she knows she should stay away. But after meeting and talking with him she is unable to kick him out of her life, but she does declare a friendship only rule. While Lorrie and Hunter grow closer and Lorrie begins to believe that this happy normal life is actually happening to her she is thrown for a loop and Hunter isn't there to catch her. Because Lorrie wasn't the only one with a secret in the relationship.
This is a story that's a cross between Real by Katy Evans and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. Both characters were real and compelling and both equally damaged. My only problem with Lorrie was she was very wishy washy with her relationship with Hunter in the beginning. She just jerked him around left and right leaving me to be like please make up your mind woman! I loved Hunter and thought he was adorable with the kittens. I definitely enjoyed the small snippet into Hunter's head at the end of the story, that really helped to show what was going on with him.
Overall this was an enjoyable book and I will definitely see what the future has for these two. ...more
This sequel just added on to the great things I loved in the first book. This book picked up right where we left off with the last one and just neverThis sequel just added on to the great things I loved in the first book. This book picked up right where we left off with the last one and just never stopped going strong. This book had a lot of great character development and things that were hinted at in the first book came to fruition in this second one.
A whole new mystery has been set up with this book and the last book in this trilogy is set up to be the best yet. Some much emotional drama within all the characters in this book. I have no idea how book three is going to resolve this massive cliffhanger. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
Word of advice if you feel like you can hold out for a while reading this books (I know it'll be hard) you might be better off because the first book and this second have massive cliffhangers so if you can patiently wait it out I would wait for the third to come out then power through so you can read all three right in a row. ...more
When Alexa's father and mother are murdered before her eyes her brother makes the decision that for them to stay together and have the best possible fWhen Alexa's father and mother are murdered before her eyes her brother makes the decision that for them to stay together and have the best possible future Alexa must become a boy. Thus Alex is born. Alexa and her twin brother are taken and put into the army. They are both part of the elite guard that protect the crown prince Damian. Alexa is the best fighter in the entire army, but it is getting harder and harder for her to conceal her true identity.
When an assassination attempt on the prince's life occurs it sets into motion a whole conspiracy that Alexa never saw coming. When the prince asks her to put her trust in him she must decide if the prince who she once believed to be spoiled and ignorant but has recently shown that perhaps she is not the only one concealing her true identity is worthy of her trust. Her entire world is shaken when she starts out on this new journey. Because everything in her kingdom is not what she was led to believe.
I liked Alexa in this book I thought she was an engaging character. I didn't love the love triangle that occurred between the prince and Rylan a friend who has been with Alexa since she joined the army. The triangle was there but it was fairly obvious who she would chose throughout the entire book and I kind of pitied the one she didn't chose.
This author definitely didn't hesitate on killing off many of the characters that are mentioned throughout the book. Some I understood had to have been killed off but some hit me hard and I was sad about. This book dealt with a lot of harsher topics that I wasn't expecting, but I understood that it was all part of the larger plot. I think this was an interesting story and I will see where future books will go. ...more
