When I started reading this I thought that we would get a look at Kate and James's time in Greece. They are there on vacation for her six months away from Henry and the underworld. I was surprised to find that the story is pretty much about Castor and Pollux, two brothers on the run from Henry and the council. I enjoyed reading about their history and I like how Kate stands up for what she believes in. It was also cool to read from Henry's point of view.
I'm not going to say anymore about the story, I don't want to ruin it for anyone. I suggest you read this if you have read the first book. It's a fun and quick read!...more

While this is a short story it has a lot of action and romance packed into it. The ending leaves the reader with a cliffhanger that happens very fast. I really enjoyed reading it and will continue with this series. I just wish that it would have been longer, I really liked the characters. This e-book was provided to me for review.

London is a human and also a private investigator for the paranormal. Her best friend Selena is a vampire. London has a meeting with a new potential client, Rico, a Sidhe. When she arrives she realizes that her friend Selena is making a meal out of him. She assumes this will be an easy assignment. It's only when Rico "touches" London that she realizes that this new job may not be as easy as she thinks. She needs to find the changlelings that Rico is looking for fast so she can break the curse of "the touch" before she goes crazy.
I liked London, she is a kick butt character who is also feisty. I liked the novella but didn't love it. I would have liked to known more about the characters and just more to the story itself. Overall a quick likable read. This e-book was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way. ...more
This is the third and final book in this amazing trilogy. I have given all three books five stars because I LOVED the entire trilogy.
Cameron and LieseThis is the third and final book in this amazing trilogy. I have given all three books five stars because I LOVED the entire trilogy.
Cameron and Liesel have been through so much together. First there was the curse she put on him to make him age rapidly and then the curse she put on him to age backwards. Cameron and Liesel are now married and Liesel is pregnant. Now they have to deal with her evil sister Hannah. Cameron and Liesel have to find Hannah and stop her curse that she has put on the world. Everyone is aging a year everyday. Then she gets angry and moves it up, finally to where they are aging a year older every minute.
I liked that we got to learn a little more about the characters from the previous two books. Their background and then what happens to them during this curse. We also get to meet some new characters that who are not whom them seem at first. It's a very fast paced story that I couldn't put down. I was so tuned into the world that Brian created that I felt like I was right there. Counting down the days till I run out like the people in this book.
I wasn't sure what to expect in reading this one. Let me tell you Brian sure shocked me over and over again in this book. There were so many twists and turns. Jaw dropping moments that I couldn't believe what I was reading and what was happening. The ending was by far NOT what I expected at all. I was so shocked that my jaw was hanging open with disbelief. This was one of the best trilogies that I have read. I loved every minute of reading all three books. I am recommending you read this trilogy, it's that good. ...more

When she tries to get away she is rescued by Mo, a handsome guy about her age. Grace and Mo become almost inseparable while hanging out in the mountains/woods.

This book has so much to offer that I don't want to give to much of the story away. There is lots of action, suspense and romance to keep you hooked throughout the story. I really enjoyed reading this, it's been a while since I have read anything other than fantasy. There is a cliffhanger ending that will not disappoint. There is also a survival tip at the beginning of each chapter which I thought was pretty cool, learned some things. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

The Burn is a dystopian that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.
To what once was the United States is now New America (aka The Burn)The Burn is a dystopian that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.
To what once was the United States is now New America (aka The Burn) a hundred years after The Event. People will do anything to survive and it is illegal to have a gun or live outside of the government controlled cities. Medical supplies and food are given out once a month and people will fight or even kill to get some. Everyone has a tracker put inside their arm/wrist so they can be tracked by the government.
Under the ocean is an entirely different world, The Colonies. They were formed by scientists after The Event. People up on The Burn just know The Colonies as stories. This is where we first meet Terra. She does not like living below the ocean where everything is controlled. She learns about The Burn in school from her teacher Mr. Klein. She has always dreamed of what it would be like to live on land where she could do what she wants. Her family and friends think she is crazy to be thinking this way. She will make a huge sacrifice to leave The Colonies.
Once on The Burn she saves someone's life. She also quickly finds out how people really live on The Burn and just how dangerous life here is. Terra is taken in by a group of people who live outside the cities hidden inside of an old abandoned school. While some trust her many do not. She must learn to adapt to life here fast or risk being captured and put in a work camp or ending up dead.
The story was well written, descriptive but not overdone and the characters were as likable as they could be due to their circumstances. Terra's sacrifice to leave The Colonies for The Burn was really gross to me and made my stomach turn. I was glad when that scene was over. The story is fast paced with lots of action and suspense. There is twist at the end that leaves the reader wanting to know what is going to happen next. I know I do! This e-book was provided to me for review.

TheGirl Steals Guy is the second installment in the Borrowing Abby Grace series. I enjoyed it just as much or maybe a little more than the first one. The author has a way of keeping you hooked and guessing until the end.
In this one Abby finds herself in Michelle's body and life. She thinks she must reunite her best friend Heather and her boyfriend Sam. At first I had the same thoughts as Abby/Michelle that Sam is just a jerk quarterback football player. But as the story went on I came to realize that things are not always what they seem. Every time I thought I knew what Abby's real mission was the author put a new twist and the story changed again. I did not see the ending coming and what the real reason Abby was there for.
I really am enjoying this series and they are so quick to read. I loved that Abby got rewarded with a memory from her real life. I hope to get more background on Abby and Will in future installments. I am looking forward to reading more stories from this author....more

The author did a great job of keeping me on the edge of my seat with all the mystery and suspense. I was shocked when the story came to a close. I was way off track of what I thought was going on with the plot. I loved it, it was not predictable at all. But really exciting and unique. I have already started reading the second book because I had to know what happened to Abby next. Readers that love mystery and/or supernatural elements will enjoy this series....more
