The Turning Tides is the final book in this series. It has been quite a journey for Marina, her family and friends. If another book would be written iThe Turning Tides is the final book in this series. It has been quite a journey for Marina, her family and friends. If another book would be written in the future I would love to read it. It would be great to see the characters in the future. But for now I am happy to have read such a great series.
Marina continues to be one strong young lady who just seems to find trouble no matter where she is. Her relationship with Ethan is tested once again but this time I wasn't sure if it would survive. The author brings in some new characters into the story that shake things up. The story mainly focuses on Marina but we do get a few updates from some of my other favorites throughout. There is a lot more suspense and action in this book than there was in the previous ones. It seemed more intense and I found myself not wanting to put it down. With the new characters comes some surprising news. Marina must figure out who she can really trust because her life and the lives of the mermaids depends on it.
When I finished reading, I was happy with how the series ended. I am going to miss reading about the characters that I have come to enjoy. Overall a great series that I would recommend. I will be on the lookout for more stories from this author. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way. ...more

Bay-Lee is not your average teenager, she is Van Helsing's daughter. She has been hiding out and moving around for most of her life with her Uncle. She has always dreamed of attending her father's school for hunters. When she finally gets the chance her life will change forever. Bay-Lee wants to train so that one day she can avenge her mother's death. Once she arrives at her new school she is taken into a mock battle almost immediately. Most of the other students don't like her and thinks that she gets special treatment because of her last name. One of the students that really dislikes her is Nick. He is a hunter and one of Van Helsing's best. Nick volunteers to mentor Bay-Lee. It's then that he realizes that he is intrigued by her. But there is a prophecy that will not allow Nick and Bay-lee be together. So they must keep their relationship a secret and figure out a way for the prophecy not to come true. If that's not enough there is someone creating wraiths to kill students on their birthdays. There are other surprises that will keep you guessing throughout.
This book will take you for one wild ride with lots of twists and turns. I was in love with the story and the characters from beginning to end. One of my favorite side characters is Keisha. I love her kick butt attitude and how she is such a great friend to Bay-Lee. I am left with unanswered questions but also wanting to read book two like right now. LOL I was shocked and surprised by the last part of the book. I am hoping that there is much more to this in the next book. I want a different ending. You will understand when you read it. This is a must read! This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way....more

I wasOh my gosh Blogger Girl is one of those books that I couldn't put down. Being a book blogger myself I totally related to that part of the story. I was like oh my gosh that is what I do with my blog, posting, reviews, author friends and the list goes on.
Kimberly Long, aka Kim, is a legal secretary at a law firm in Manhattan. While she enjoys her job she has always thought of being a writer. She has a great boss, Rob, who she seems to "boss" around most of the time. Then there is Nicholas, the lawyer down the hall who Kim has been crushing on for a while.
Kim attends her high class reunion and runs into the high school "mean girl" Hannah who happens to have just written a chick lit book. She wants Kim to read and review on her blog Pastel is the New Black. This makes Kim jealous, even though she doesn't realize it at first.
I liked how the story didn't just focus on the blogger part of Kim. It really followed her throughout her daily life. The ups and downs of being a blogger and the romance in her life.
Blogger Girl is humorous and the characters are so real. I don't normally read contemporary or chick lit but this book has changed my view on it. I loved the office party at the end of the book and the karaoke singing. All in all a well written book. I will be on the lookout for more stories from this author....more

You just want to listen to it over and over again. But in this case I would love to read this trilogy again. This third and final book brings the story to a whole new level and ties everything together with an epic ending that I did not see coming. I could not put my kindle down, Chloe and Alex's story had me so drawn in. It's romantical and suspenseful with a bit of mystery tied in.
Chloe and Alex are living with their son Sammy in San Diego within their drift. Things are going really well but there is always someone waiting for them in the shadows. Franco and his men are still trying to get their hands on the mysterious locket. Alex has secrets of his own and little Sammy always seems to know that Chloe needs to follow what Alex says is best.
Throughout the story I found myself trying to figure out the answers to the same questions that Chloe had. I have to admit that I was confused of what was really going on and what was real and what was a drift. The confusion was a good thing though because by the end I was really surprised. There are many twists and turns throughout with one that I thought had changed the story and thought I knew the outcome. Well I was sure wrong, the last part of the book throws a major curve and the story comes full circle. Things are not always what they seem and this author did a fantastic job of making that happen within these three books. I loved how the locket and the picture came to be about at the end. When you read the book you will understand. I could go on and on but I don't want to give any spoilers away.
This is not a genre that I normally read but I am so happy that when I was asked to read the first book Schasm that I did. While this story was fun for me to read it really opened my eyes up to people with mental illness. I highly recommend reading this trilogy. I am looking forward to reading more from this amazing author in the future. This e-book was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way....more

Just when Chloe and Alex thought they were escaping their horrible real lives things take a turn for the worse. Chloe and Alex are now being held captive by her Uncle Franco. But what I loved is how they are living such a wonderful life in Paris within their drift. While most of the story takes place in their drift there are times that Chloe goes back to real life. In both reality and the drift Chloe and Alex are in danger and are seeming to run out of time. This book took their story to a entire new place so to speak. We meet new characters and learn so much more about Alex's past. Uncle Franco has some secrets of his own that change things up a bit too. While I found myself getting lost within their story I couldn't help but forget that they were living in one of their drifts and not real life. There are some major changes towards the end and an exciting change to the cliffhanger at the end.
I really enjoyed the first two books and am looking forward to reading the third book When Fully Fused. This e-book was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way. ...more

Chloe has lived her entire life basically a prisoner in her own home. Her mother treats her bad and only allows her to leave the house to go to the doctor where she always accompanies her. She thinks Chloe is mentally ill. Chloe is left with only her imagination so she drifts. She lives an entirely different life in her other world. It's here that she meets Alex and his mother Celia. Chloe finds out that she knew them since she was a child. Is Alex and Celia real, has she known them since childhood or is it all in her imagination?
I don't want to give too much of the story away. I will say that there is some romance and lots of twists and turns. I have not read a book like this before and I was just blown away by it. I was told that I would either love it or hate it. Well I loved it. It kept me guessing and wondering what was real and what was in her imagination.
The ending has a major twist and then we are left with a cliffhanger ending. I need book two like now. Even if this is not a genre that you normally read, I recommend you read this. It's that good.

I thought I really enjoyed the first book in this series Mercenary but Protector took the story to a whole new level. If I could give it more than five starts I would. It's that good!
Marin and Favian are splitting their time between the elf kingdom and going out on missions to kill ogres. While at the kingdom Marin comes in contact with who she thinks is Favian only to find out that it is his identical twin brother Sebastian. As you are probably thinking yes this does cause some problems. But Marin is more focused on becoming a Protector and killing as many ogres as she can. While at the same time she wants to find out who her real father is and what she is apart from being human. I think I was as shocked and as confused as Marin when she finds out some things from her past. She is also trying to keep Favian from finding out that she is in love with him, while it seems everyone in the kingdom knows this already. But that doesn't stop the males from wanting to court her.
Protector is full of action, suspense, lots of twists and turns and some romance. It will keep you on your toes from start to finish. There is just so much that we learn in this one but so much more to find out in the next installment too. The ending is truly magical. I could just keep gushing about this one all day. I just really loved it and hope I don't have to wait to long for the next book. This is one of those stories that I want to read over and over.

Amber Passion is one of those books that you don’t want to put down and you don’t want to end. I loved Emerald Destiny and wasn’t sure what to exceptAmber Passion is one of those books that you don’t want to put down and you don’t want to end. I loved Emerald Destiny and wasn’t sure what to except from the third and final book. Allie Burke blew me away with this one. It was like reading something magical. The words just flowed so perfect throughout. I am sad to see it end but wow what a great story it was.
It pretty much picks up where Emerald Destiny left off. Abby and Evan’s relationship continues to grow. We get to meet and love Claire, the girl, not the car. You need to read the first two books to understand this. Daniel really becomes his own person and starts making a life for himself. While at the same time he is still linked to his twin sister Abby. I enjoyed the new characters and at the same time reconnecting with previous and unexpected ones. Unanswered questions were answered in this one and I was surprised by some of the revelations. The near ending was unexpected and a bit shocking. The end of the book though I enjoyed getting a look at them years later.
All around a fun fantasy that I would recommend. Just so you all know that there are some adult scenes in this one also. I will be on the lookout for more stories from this author. This e-arc was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way. ...more

Sometimes when I read the second book in a series or trilogy I am not always happy by the end. Radium Halos Part 2 is an exception. By the end it will leave you asking for more.
Zoe and her friends are wanting and looking for some way to help out others in their community with their new found powers. They are training hard and learning more about what they can do with their powers. When muggings, break ins and even murder start occurring in their small town they step up their game. They are trying to figure out who is behind all of this. At the same time Zoe is figuring out her feelings for Kieran while keeping them a secret from the group. There is tension between some of the friends too, with a couple accusing the others of some crazy things.
We still haven't learned why or how they received their powers. While this is somewhat of a short read there is a lot packed into it. It is written well and I found myself not wanting to put it down. The mystery, suspense and romance were extras that I loved. I was trying to figure out who the traitor was throughout the book. By the end I had figured out the correct person although I was hoping I was wrong.
The ending is really good and leaves you wanting more. There are some twists and turns that are going to make the third book even better than the previous ones I think.

Mora is a teenage girl on a mission to save her village from the greyskins (zombie like creatures). Her parents are dead and now it's up to her to find a way to keep her brother and grandmother alive and safe. She sets out to seek help from Jeremiah, the leader of Screven. Along the way she encounters a herd of greyskins. This leads her to discovering that she has super human powers. She ends up in another colony where she comes into contact with others like her, the Starborn. Mora must decide who she can trust while learning about her new powers.
This is where I really started to enjoy the book even more. The first couple of chapters gave a background of what the world Mora lives in is like. It was also somewhat creepy reading about the greyskins. The story became more interesting to read as it went on. I found myself not wanting to stop reading. It is full of action, suspense and a bit of romance here and there with a love triangle threw into the mix. The story is well written with interesting and likeable characters. I am looking forward to reading the sequel after the cliffhanger ending from this one. I will be reading more from this author in the future. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review.

In the previous novella Angel jumped into the dark hole and is presumed gone forever. Her friends however refuse to believe this and are reading her diary trying to figure out a way to get her back. Her soulmate Rafael has gone crazy on everyone because he doesn't want to deal with Angel being gone.
When they do find a way to get Angel back things are not what they had expected. The demon beast is inside of Angel. She has to fight hard to keep control but at times the beast takes over.

In this one we get a surprise visit for a short time from someone that was lost in the previous novella. We also get to meet some new characters that turn out to be interesting in their own ways. I enjoyed learning about the hybrid witch/vampire. As I have said previously this one is full of action and suspense. There is some romance and new friendships. I have enjoyed this trilogy and recommend it to anyone who enjoys vampire stories with a twist. I am looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
