Torin, carrier of demon of disease, is my favorite Lord of the Underworld. He is the most doomed of them all and I just love good tragedies. He has foregone the ability to touch another as this would either kill, transmit disease then start plagues.
Keeleycael is a worthy to Torin. Their lovestory is heartbreaking at first. Keys, determined to touch Torin, and Torin unable to fight the temptation to touch Keys, their love story was almost doomed from the start. Keys was willing to risk it all. She touches Torin and she gets infected three times! She tells Torin that she is stronger than his demon, and soon the demon will run out of diseases to give her. So heartbreaking.
I was mind blown by the ending! It had so much sense and so much science! I liked that Torin gets his HEA not by some gimmicky magic trick, but by science. I know it's a paranormal romance, but I like my paranormal romances a tad more believable. lol.
The puns on Torin's shirt are awesome! I should mention that I want one! Ladies, this would be good business, message me and I'll buy one if it is decent priced.
Also, let me say ladies, that Gena Showalter has her magic back. This is no holds barred LOTU book rivaling the first books in the series.
If Gena keeps this writing up, I do hope she writes on William, Galen, Hades then Cameo, in that order. ______ $1.99 on kindle store now 12/29/14!

Unique storybuilding revolving around a 16 year old named Darrow.
Imagine a universe (I am not exaggerating, because we are going beyond Earth), where humans are inhabiting every planet and social classes are identified by color. On the bottom of the pyramid are the reds. Though by current 2014 standards, red haired women are hot. On top of the chains are the golds (or as I like to call them, the blondes. And I am sure that redheads are hotter than the blondes. The reds are toiling in the center of Mars for the betterment of the future generation. So that Mars will be ready for people on earth. However, as Eo, Darrow's wife, discovers trees and grass above the surface, their beliefs are shattered as they realize that Mars' surface has been inhabited by humans for generations.
Eo and Darrow are to be executed upon discovering the truth, but Darrow is saved by rebels and is then turned into a gold to infiltrate the system and take it down from within.
The book is good, however, it must come with a disclaimer that it is the first book in a trilogy which is not finished yet. Book 2 comes out in 2015, so good luck waiting! :o...more

As I just saw the latest XMEN, James McAvoy's face is still fresh in my mind, so I imagine him as Richard Mayhew pretty clearly. And I've loved Natalie Dormer from the Tudors, so this dramatization just put a whole new level on audiobook listening.
Utterly transfixing and beguiling, I highly recommend this audiobook to all fellow audiobook listeners. Short book (only 3 hours and 48 minutes).
Richard Mayhew, has a full time job, and is engaged. One night, as he and and his fiance are roaming the streets of London, he sees a girl in need and on that spot, he decides to help her.
The girl he saves is Door. Guess why? Because she can open doors. Even if there really isn't a door. She exposes him to London below. And from then on, Richard Mayhew stops to exist on London above. His coworkers do not know him and his fiancee has no idea who he is. He tries to look for Door and then he enters London below.
What is London below? For one thing, it's magical and more beautiful than London above.
As Richard goes on a quest to help Door to get his identity back, he gains more than what he could ever fathom....more

Please do not continue if you are not over 18 years of age.
My favorites are:
Things you've said after a break up - eight inches of sausage isn't worth buying the whole pig
Funny friend quotes - my friend once told me: "I'm single by choice. Their choice."
Funny gay quotes - let's get one thing straight, I'm not.
Shameful quotes - "I love you" has eight letters. So does "bullshit". -why does a couple hold hands at their wedding? It's a formality: just like two boxers, shaking hands before the fight begins.
Things you can say to your dog but not your wife - if you behave, I'll let you chew on this big bone
Unforgettable things your father has said to you - I always have the last word in an argument: 'yes, dear'
Things you don't want to hear in a bedtime story - fairy godmother warned Cinderella to be home by midnight, because her vajayjay would turn into a pumpkin at the stroke of midnight. Cinderella said: "it's all good, my date us Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater." -Dopey stood right in front of naked Snow White and said: "gee, your hair smells terrific."
Funniest text From your parents - my mom thought 'LOL' meant 'lots of love'. So one day, I get a text from her: "grandma just died. LOL."
The book has so much more in it. It has 205 pages. Some are just hilarious, the others serious. The illustrations are cute to boot too....more
Catherine Bybee has WOWed me with her previous Not Quite books. The first book Not Quite Dating was enjoyable that I had given it solid four stars. ItCatherine Bybee has WOWed me with her previous Not Quite books. The first book Not Quite Dating was enjoyable that I had given it solid four stars. It kept me swooning, however, it didn't make me want to grab the next book right away. However, amazon had a deal, and I already had Catherine Bybee under my radar, so I went and bought the other two books in the series. I picked up the second book, Not Quite Mine, and I was so delighted that I ended up giving it four stars.
With the third book, Not Quite Enough at my disposal, it was no wonder that I decided to read it as soon as I finished with the second book.
And I have to admit, I was disappointed.
But Catherine Bybee has turned this disappointment around as soon as I got passed the middle part.
Monica Mann is a nurse. She is introduced in the first book as the best friend of the heroine. Now, she gets her spotlight. She is member of a team of nurses that help in disasters. An earthquake hits Jamaica that leaves the country in devastation, so she goes to Jamaica to help out.
Monica is particularly good at segregating cases. People from all over are rushing to their hospital because of lack of doctors from other places. So the doctors decide to send her over to a clinic to help (since even people who don't need a doctor are rushing off to their hospital, thus it has become overly crowded). She goes to the clinic and helps out. Trent Fairchild, the pilot, who has been helping them out, has offered his house to Monica for her to have access to his amenities and his bed (for sleep of course).
Of course this is a romance book, so they're attracted to each other. They hit it off, without them expecting more from each other. Trent brings Monica to a secluded part of Jamaica which has not been destroyed by the tsunami. They make most of their time together, but there's an aftershock of the earthquake which causes the cave they are in to topple over. They are trapped which only each other, and a bag with meager supplies to survive with until rescue comes.
So, why was I disappointed? There was a scene inside Trent's house, where they were fine and then suddenly, something changed. And I couldn't figure out what. Probably they realized they were deeply attracted to each other that it became awkward? But what salvaged the book was them being trapped in the cave. Here, I have felt them genuinely connect with each other.
Solid four stars for Not Quite Enough by Ms Catherine Bybee.
Katie Morrison has everything a girl could want. She has fancy shoes, she has money, she lives in hotels, she can party. But she doesn't have the oneKatie Morrison has everything a girl could want. She has fancy shoes, she has money, she lives in hotels, she can party. But she doesn't have the one thing she really wants. A viable uterus. Katie had a miscarriage, which damaged her uterus for good.
The experience had changed her. She had matured, but she does not correct others about their view about her. She decides to help her brother with the designing of his new chain of hotels. She gets a job as an interior designer.
At her brother's wedding, a baby is left in her room's door. With the baby comes a letter and adoption papers with Katie as the mother. She falls in love with Savannah (the baby) and hires a private investigator to find out who left her the baby.
Dean Prescott is the best man of her brother. Dean and Jack have been best friends for so long, but Dean and Katie have always had a thing for each other. They had been together once, and that did not end well. Dean tries to win Katie back, but Katie has to juggle her job and keeping Savannah secret from everyone.
Not Quite Mine is enjoyable and had strong potential for a five star read. However, the ending, on who Savannah's mother was, was actually not believable. But I guess love can know no bounds, especially if the love we are talking about is on paper.
But yes, love can be sweeter the second time around....more
