Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Totally genius, who can take a race of aliens you despise and make you fall in love with one? Jennifer Armentrout that’s who.
Obsession is the adult companion to the wildly popular Young Adult Lux Series and not to be missed by any Jennifer L. Armentrout/ J. Lynn Fan.
Our heroine Serena is a foul mouthed and funny take no shit kid of girl which I love. She is sucked into the world of the Luxen and Arum when her best friend Mel witnesses her Luxen boyfriend goes all light bright during a fight with his brother. Terrified she contacts her best friend and dishes all the dirty details to Serena.
Serena may first think she’s crazy…
“Yes. He lit up like a freaking glow stick or—or you remember those toys that you squeeze and they light up?” “A Glo Worm?” “That!” Mel pulled her hand free and thrust it through her chin-length, raven-colored hair. “He was like a Glo Worm but only brighter.” Oh dear. She was definitely rocking the crazy pants. “Were you guys drinking or possibly smoking something—”
Then a Luxen shows up and proves Mel is perfectly sane. Enter Hunter, the Arum the DOD sends in to protect Serena.
“This guy was all kinds of inappropriate.”
Oh where do I start? How much did I love Hunter? Well let’s just say he is an instant panty dropping addition to the top book boyfriends list. He’s dark, hot, mysterious, hot, sexy, hot, demanding, and did I say hot?
I have to go with Heather Ricco's find on this one, this guy was just to perfect, here's our Hunter
Arum are nothing like we have glimpsed in the Lux series. As with every race you have your good and your bad seeds. I love this look deeper into Armentrout’s alien world. Obsession has everything you expect from an Armentrout book snark, humor, heat, a lovable heroine, a deliciously sexy bad boy, emotions galore, and epic surprises.
Pick up this series immediately you will not be disappointed! This was an Epic 5+ star read!!! So it gets our Super Kiss!

It takes awhile for it to resonate.... and I love that I can keep updates my reviews so lol, here is the new one....
Review from 12/28/12
I am to close to this series so I really can't review it anymore. I work with H.D. Gordon but that started because I was her biggest fan, still am. But I am so close to the series now and I guess I shouldn't review it.
But I also purchased it so I should get to put in my two cents. So here it is....
The is no category or genre that we can properly box or label H.D. Gordon into, she simply is just a brilliant writer who creates the most amazing worlds I can escape to. Whatever the subject matter is I don't mind, as long as Gordon has dreamed it up, I am up for the adventure. Read The Alexa Montgomery Saga if you want an inspiring journey that will make you experience just about every emotion. I laughed (quite a bit), was outraged at our villain, I loved with the characters, and in turn loved them as well. I was completely disgusted and horrified when those were the appropriate situations. The twists and turns and pulse pounding action kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning and I was continually shocked and blindsided. Gordon's unique style of writing keeps the books' pacing where I felt like the ebook page turning feature wasn't turning the page fast enough. And oh boy did I cry with them and for them.
Every single one of H.D. Gordon's books shows her growth as a writer and the continued advancement of the mastery of her craft. I know she would disagree but this saga is a masterpiece. And it's Gordon's denial of that statement, that keeps her books getting better and better. This saga is a true piece of art and you can feel her passion in every word.
I really need more stars to rate her books.
So thank you H.D. for taking a chance and being brave enough to share your unique world with us, I loved every minute of the epic quest.
I purchased this book from the Amazon US site, I also received the beta version from the author in exchange for my honest opinion, I did not receive any compensation for writing this review. And As I said I also work with H.D. Gordon.
Review from 12/18/12 Just finished the beta read
How does she surprise and shock even me?
How is she able to make even me cry?
I'm too close to this series. I can't even review it anymore but this Saga is a masterpiece.
It fits in no category or label I can think of, It is simply H.D. Gordon.
You never know what's going to happen in her world because we find out right after she does. (less)

I usually enjoy books that have creatures of all shapes and sizes in the paranormal world. Add in a tough female lead and a sexy man and you can't go wrong with this short, sexy, and fun read. This is the first I have read from Tiffany Allee and I can't wait to read book 2 and whatever else she writes, she has a new fan!
Thank you to Entangled for providing me with a review copy I genuinely loved this one! You guys rock!(less)

Janelle Stalder is a force to be reckoned with, her writing just keeps better and better. Eden West continues this amazing fantasy world, I really have not seen anyone better than her at world building in a long time. The plot thickens and the second installment in the Eden series leaves you breathless for the next book.
Elisa is a strong female heroine any mother can trust their teen daughters to look up to. Wolfe, the party boy rake, seems to be growing up... a little bit anyway. He is slowly endearing himself to me. Aiden as always has everyone's best interests first and foremost in his heart. The depth we are seeing with Callum foreshadows what is to come, and I think we are all going to be surprised by him (I hope *fingers crossed*).
There are twists and turns I never saw coming and this fantasy novel is one of the best out there. Pick up this series immediately.
My Rating: 5+ smooches
Recommended for: Teens and Adults
Now the really fun stuff. I already had Travis in mind for Wolfe but Diva Terri is really the best for picking our Book Boyfriends so I am stealing her Callum ;-P

First off I have to say ignore the cover. I don't think it fits the story. Ok now onto the good stuff...I really enjoyed this story! I love when we have all types of supernatural creatures into this mix (when it works and this one absolutely works).
Cory is a strong female lead who kicks ass! Enter the sexy Vampire Nick and you have one steamy read. Not only do you get a great paranormal romance add in a good mystery, surprises, and intrigue and you have a hit!
Thanks to Diva Alana for recommending and to Lanie Malone for providing me with a review copy!

During a playful talk about fantasies, Caitlin's fiancé offers to give her a threesome with his best friend, Liam, who's coming to spend the weekend. At first Cait is shocked that Nathan could entertain the thought of sharing her with another man, but once he's planted the idea her imagination runs wild, leaving her deeply aroused yet still unsure about what the implications could be for her and Nate's relationship.
Nathan's watched Cait struggle to hide her attraction to Liam for years. He knows she's nervous, but he also knows that by making her most intimate fantasies come true he can bring her to heights of pleasure she's only imagined, and strengthen their bond. There's only one way to help her overcome her inhibitions—by planning a night of ecstasy she'll never forget…
This is the first book I have read from from Croix and what a treat it was. No hold Barred was an erotic delight with plenty of emotion and just enough story to make you love the characters. It was not your typical menage read with a bunch of characters willing to jump in bed and act like emotions and jealously would not affect the dynamic between the three (not that I don't love those as well). But it is a fresh take and more realistic to what might actually transpire between a couple deeply committed to each other and their best friend. I also loved Croix's military alpha male characters, not domineering but sexually dominate, it all adds up to a sexy encounter.

This was just ok for me. Story is original and has allot of potential. However it needs to be longer. We need more back ground and more character development. If feels rushed. It is a very short 75 page read but it left me feeling unsatisfied.
I think if the author took a bit more time and developed this story a bit more and didn't end it so abruptly it would be a great read.
With that being said it was a nice way to spend an hour. If you are looking for a short read and the synopsis sounds intriguing try it on. (less)

Deity is The Book of 2012, thus far, and I do not say this lightly! I am a huge Armentrout fan and I started with the Lux series because at the time my friend Kay said start with that one and Kay has impeccable taste so I did. I have allot of love and time invested in that series and would have said I liked it just a little bit more than the covenant series... But... Holy Daimon babies was Deity the freaking bomb or what?!?!?!?
I have been dying to share the awesome-ness that is Deity with the world since I got it.... er.... well, whenever that was that those wonderfully amazing people at Spencer hill Press sent it to me and I did my happy dance and all out fan girl freak out....
So yeah I read it and was quiet literally my mind was like this for days...
I could not even process and wrap my mind around how awesome the book was. And only now after spending months with it can I even make an attempt of talking about it.
In Deity we re-join Alex, Aiden, and Seth... oh and all those other people. We are re-united with our long lost friends and join the wait for Alex's 18th birthday.
All through this series I really couldn't decide who I wanted Alex to be with ... I mean Aiden and Seth (to me) were equally appealing. But in this one I became all about Aiden. He is just so .... yummy.
Really what's not to love?
Don't get me wrong I will always have hope for one of my favorite bad boys, Seth. If he decides to man up and take it I will always hold out with a little piece of my heart for him.
Seriously though girls, this book was the bomb digity ... all that and a bag of chips! Pre-Order your copy now. Maybe camp out at your local book store for it's release because I lie to you not it is epic.
I know I am not telling you much about this book, but believe me I have my reasons for secrecy! You DO NOT want it spoiled for you, I don't even want to try to tip toe around the plot and risk it.... yeah, it's that good.
Of coarse Deity gets the Super smooch from me
Love You Jennifer Armentrout! Thank you for this amazing series and all the fun times I have with your characters. They really are truly unique and I love them all! Also thank you to those amazing people at Spencer Hill Press you guys rock!
~update~ I just ordered three copies from the Barnes and Noble where Jen is today! One for me, 2 for giveaways! Woot Woot!!!!
Happy Release Day!!!!!!!!!

Valerie Williams is a teenage socialite who seems to have it all. Designer clothes, a cute jock boyfriend, popularity and all the perks that come with it. She receives an allowance and is never short on funds to get the most expensive and current fashion forward clothes. While planning to buy her prom dress her mother drops a bomb on her life... no more allowance... she has to get a job. So she does what every teenager would do in her position... has a complete hissy fit! Does not help her though, the next day she is forced to go to work with her mom.
She has no idea her mom is a tooth fairy and she is going to love her job. We follow Valerie on her journey through her new job and while she discovers just how shallow she has been. While I was frustrated with her mistakes I cheered her on to make better decisions and deal with her problems.
Recommended for older teens and adults, this would be a great book to read with the teen in your life and give you opportunities to talk about the issues Valerie goes through and how she handles them. Rating - 4 Stars(less)

This was an action packed read. A nice change is the paranormal genera. Deacon Chase's family was killed by vampires and now his only goal is to kill monsters until one takes him out so that he may join his family. Deacon is not your typical hero, he is a 6'4 320 pound bad boy with a bad attitude... and a good Catholic. He owns a strip club that helps fund his fight and has taken in anyone who has had a run-in with the monsters. Shaved head, goatee, and covered in tattoos her appearance just screams trouble. He has no interest in women and just lives for vengeance. Maybe that might change in later books and as a lover of paranormal romance I really think I can love this series regardless if we cross that bridge. I am looking forward this series and you have a new fan Mr. Tuck!

In Altered you get a Louisiana Bayou adventure. Jenna Larson is an 18 year old on summer vacation before her senior year in a small town in the mysterious humid Bayou in the deep south. Visiting her “Pops” for the entire summer is just what she had in mind and a trip she makes every summer, a nice lazy summer soaking up the suns glorious rays…
While sunning herself she thinks she hears her voice being called into the words, so she does what any sane girl her age would do… follows it into the woods silly! Ok I know you wouldn’t do that and neither would I. However Jenna is the curios sort and this is her story so we let her. She finds a dilapidated cabin and incidentally finds a cursed book (hence why I would have never had went in the woods).
I digress! Anywho… she starts having odd dreams that night and weird things happening with said cursed book… To be fair there is a rose on the cover as well but you try finding that picture, besides I like the snake, very creepy.
The next day Jenna heads into town to the local hang out with two old friends and while catching up and eating pizza she spots a boy across the restaurant. She catches his eye as well and soon he attempts the cutest opening line. Enter Jess Parkin our very mysterious 19 year old bad boy with bright blue eyes…
Yep you know I am a sucker for the dark hair, blue eyes, bad boy type! I won’t get into too much more because I don’t want to spoil anything but Jess is a mystery to Jenna and is instantly drawn to those baby blues (can’t blame a girl for that). While falling into a forbidden love Jenna has a supernatural mystery and a cursed book on her hands, not to mention some family secrets.
I struggled very much with my rating for this one because I did enjoy the story so much but there were a few issues I had with the book. Mainly the ending, don’t worry I won’t spoil it but I will just say that a couple of the events were not believable to me and the ending feels very abrupt.
With all that being said I do recommend it.
This is a great book to share and read with a teenager in your life!

I mean wow what a cast of hunky men! I really enjoy books based on the fae and this one did not disappoint. Rayla was a likable heroine and I loved the twists and turns her love life takes. I do enjoy a good love triangle or square but sometimes they can be over done and annoying. But I really enjoyed this one and it kind of sneaks up on you. I am really looking forward to the next one.
Ms Rich's debut novel is a winner and I am a fan!
Now the pics!
Ok let's get Rayla out of the way...
Now let's go for Mr. Tall dark and extremely sexy Zach, I am a total sucker for the black hair blue eyes...
The extremely dark Jett...I couldn't decide between these two so you get both because one can never have to many pictures of half naked guys ;-)
Taylor the hot latin lover...
Finn... the fabulous Celtic dream, let's face it there is NEVER anything wrong with a man in a kilt!
And lastly but certainly not least is Luke the blond god! Now I know what you are thinking "That's Nic's favorite cause there are so many" but it's simply not true. For me the jury is still out on Luke BUT I just always get carried away pulling pics of Alex Pettyfer.... how can you not?
