You know the feeling when you read something amazing and want more but alas the next installment doesn't come out any time soon? Yeah this was one of those reads for me. That's why I like reading my series when they are all finished. I don't have to agonizing months and then forget why I liked the previous book in the first place. Probably noticed not a fan of re-reading my already read shelf unless it's a cupcake book.
So all things aside specially the fact of me not getting my fat grubby hands on the next book, this was excellent. Again the book cover, it's always been a put off for me and no Zombies did not look like that from what I gathered. So yeah if you are a fan of Zombies, this is a must read. Put it on your TBR along with it's previous book. (less)

And like iDrakula this too was impossible to put down till the very end. iFrankenstein is the modern techie take of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein.
Over the years there have been allot of movies, series, plays based on the original book, I ought to know cause I am a big no HUGE Frankenstein fan. However from all the Frankenstein takes I have witnessed thus far, iFranktenstein is one of the most memorable one. I suppose if Frankenstein was a teenager in this time of era I imagine he too would be quite the genius and create a monster such as VV that lived in the internet.
iFrankenstein is definitely something worth checking out if you haven't already. And if you are looking for more cell phone novels like iFrankenstein I would also suggest you check out iDrakula, another awseome text/email tale of Dracula. (less)

A Healing Heart was a great change to that stereotypical reading.
What attracted me most to the book was the word building, and Melissa did a great job bringing her characters to life. Making them so believable. I simply adored reading about Collin and Bailey, my only complain is the story ended to soon.
What I struggled with was, sometimes character would go on a bit longer than necessary with their own monologue, making it hard to stay focused. Other than that it was a pretty solid.
If you are looking for a quick, well put together YA romance, A Healing Heart is worth a shot. (less)

I am fascinated by the idea of angels and demons and after looking at that beautiful cover, I just had to read the book. The illustration itself represents a lot about the story. Even though Dominion is my first book with angels, (well not quite angels but Grandinians and Grantinians) I really enjoyed reading about the characters.
Abigail isn't quite what I expected when I started reading Dominion, she was a surprise. Kindda sneaked up on me. Abigail is not a normal teenage girl, and like I said she kindda sneaked up on me. Gideon, here is one very twisted and sexy creature, that I liked reading about. No. Really. I did! He scares the life outta Abigail, and practically everyone, but I still likes him. It felt a bit like he was suffering from split personality disorder but heck, I liked him evil.
The author did an wonderful job bringing her characters to life and really awesome job with the twisty turns of the story that kept me guessing what's to come next. Recommended to readers who likes reading paranormal young-adult.(less)

When I picked up my copy of Just One Of The Guys, and after reading it's synopsis I was sure this would be another WIN. But sadly it wasn't.
I have mixed feelings towards this book really. The setting in a small town, independent girl Chasity bordering on her thirties, looking forward to settle down with someone she loves and a half hound-dog, half bull mastiff named Buttercup. BIG family, always an A+ in my book. Specially when she is the little sister of the clan. I know me and my siblings are very protective of our little brother :) So as I was saying BIG family with lots of nieces and nephews, great career and the only thing Chasity is missing right now is a husband and four kids.
Yeah absolutely perfect for a contemporary romance theme. And so far I am in love with the entire thing. Now we come to the love life. In one side we have the fireman she had always loved since Chasity could understand the meaning of the word love. But he practically lives with his family sooo he was sortta like another son to her parents. And she doesn't want him to feel weird so they keep their distance but I swear there is something there. I am sure of it, and then in the other side we have the New York Times doctor with perfect cheekbones who just happens to waltz in Chasity's life. So who is the perfect suitor? Should be pretty clear right? WRONG! And I am still okay.
Now is the time everything gets outta hand. Till almost end of the book everything seems to go somewhat smoothly with one of these 'suitors', and it was fine and dandy too, until ....until there was this triangle limbo. I like reading about a healthy love triangle like any other reader, but this was just twisted. I had no freaking clue who was suppose to be it for Chasity and it was just not that great like I hoped it would be.
At the end I just have to say Just One Of The Guys was really disappointing, not comparing to Higgins' other work, but the triangle just put me off big time. Miss Higgins has written lots of great books, in fact All I Ever Wanted was one of my cupcake worthy books.(less)

I finished reading this about ten minutes ago, I'm sure there is going to be TONS of typos when I'm done writing this post but I have to write this down now before I forget all these feels. I have so much love for this book right now it's simply indescribable!
A Fall Of Water, is final installment of the Elemental Mysteries series. I have been sticking with this series from the very beginning and I am really glad that I stuck to it till the end. I still remember reading about Beatrice and Giovanni meeting for the first time in A Hidden Fire. Tenjin, Carwyn, Dez every one throughout these books have grown on me. And in A Fall Of Water, Ben has been one of my favorite character to read about. He is just a big sweetheart and I want more about this Vecchio.
The last book goes into a bit deeper in the vampire myth than the previous books. Revealing more about the elements of the vampires and the power to manipulate it. One of the main thing that was fascinating to me was Giovanni's vampire bloodline, at the end I felt like learning more of the ancient vampires history. But hats off to Miss Hunter for bringing this awesome characters to life and thank you so much for introducing me to them.
It breaks my heart to say goodbye to the characters and this story but this was really one of the perfect ending for a series. If you are a fan of paranormal vampire novels, Elemental Mysteries is a MUST read.

After the month long Some Girls Bite read-along back in January I was pretty much in love with all the characters. I am still intrigued by them and definitely want to know if they will ever get their head out of their asses.
Merit, still has issues so does Ethan ... actually there is not a single character without some major WTF moments. I had random moments of 'stop it you..'. I can still relate to Merit's situation. Ethan still in denial about his feelings and I do believe he is the biggest jerk there is. I am serious Ethan, own up to your feelings dude! Sigh. But still I love the slow build up even though the sexual frustration between them is palpable.
Cather and Mallory, a little less lust-at-first-sight in this book but lust nonetheless. And I repeat, they are great character individually, I just don't feel the love.
I am still getting into the audiobook thing, I like reading my book rather than listening to it.
So at the end I must say I am going to see through this series even though Merit thinks what she does is right, Ethan finds making out is effective rather than taking her out on a date, Cather and Mallory needs to find something other than bareback in the kitchen, not enough JEFF. Cause lets face it, I'm too involve with the story to give up even though it frustrate me to no end. (less)

Her paranormal series, Elemental Mysteries is one of my favorite. So when E asked me to read this, I just had to have it. And as you might have noticed I am in a contemporary high lately, so The Genius and the Muse by Elizabeth Hunter was an awesome edition to my contemporary read-fest.
Miss Hunter's writing style always connects me to her stories, her characters. Ever read something like, you know when you get invested in it so much that it's hard to put down? Well her writing is that way for me. The Genius and the Muse is one of those stories which I just couldn't put down till I was done. The storyline the characters are all so compelling that when I started reading it at 4 in the morning I couldn't stop. I had to finish. Took me about a little over 12 hours or so. Absolutely worth it.
What I LOVED the most was, Kate and Javi, hands down. The story started off with Kate, a grad student at Foothill sort of obsessed with the famous photographer Reed O' Corner. I have to admit for a page or two I thought there might be something between the two. But as I read further it was clear that Kate's curiosity about Reed was not in any way romantic. Her search to find out more about Reed's personal life leads her to Javi, a tattooed sculpture/artist/mechanic. Javi doesn't give the look of a nice guy, he is more of a rude anti-social person. In spite that Kate and Javi's attraction towards each other was undeniable. The time frame change was a bit disconcerting for my taste. Other than that this was a sweet, amazing read. Recommended to readers with a taste for contemporary romance.(less)

At least the last one I see listed here. I loved it. Truly. And if Miss Mallery decides to write more of the Desert Rouges series, I would be deffo buying one for me.
End verdict for the entire series: They were very addictive for me. I enjoyed them emmensly and I think these Sheik books has become my guilty pleasure. I will continue to read other works by Susan Mallery to see if it's the series that will remain my guilty pleasure or her writing.(less)
