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 am Chanku, Sebastian. After a run, I really want to fuck. No strings. No ties. I just really, really want sex. Are you up for that?”
He shook himself, and she thought of a big dog coming out of the rain. But then he glanced down at the front of his slacks and raised his head and one eyebrow. “I guess I am.”
Did I get your attention?
As if you didn’t already know already Kate Douglas in one of my favorite authors. Not only is her writing smoldering hot but she is brilliant! Dark Wolf is the second generation of Chanku; The Spirit Wild Series is another Slam-dunk from the queen of erotic novels, Kate Douglas.
I have read along while the first generation met, mated, married, and eventually had children. Now I get to travel along with the pack again in this all new fresh look on their society. This generation knows their heritage and makes no excuses about what they are and what they want.
Lily Cheval is basically the princess of their kind and is all Alpha. She has never meet a man who challenged her and her wolf until Sebastian. Sebastian Xenakis is the son of Aldo Xenakis, a dark wizard that the pack has never trusted. But is Sebastian like his father?
Brutal killings are taking place and all signs point to Chanku. The pack feels like they are being set up and suspect their largest critic Aldo may have something to do with it. But Sebastian seems to be in all the wrong places at the times of the killings.
Lily is torn, she feels the pull to this strong man but if he even Chanku? Humans and Chanku pairs never work out. And something isn’t right with Sebastian, could it be his fathers dark magic or is he playing Lily?
Dark Wolf is a thrilling and sensual dive back into Chanku society whether or nor you have read the first generation or not do not miss this one.
This Book released today Pick it up immediately.
I was provided an advance reader copy by the author for purposes of review, I received no compensation for it.

I don't how Gordon always catches me off guard! Maybe because she keeps me up reading all night. The Rise is a masterful blend of heart racing action, fear, betrayal, and unyielding love.
The Montgomery sisters take us on a dark journey in book 3, more secrets to be discovered, and some one is tested to the brink (and way past) of insanity.
And through it all Alexa's Libra, Kayden, is steadfast in his support of Alexa.
But the Question is what happened to Jackson? Will Alexa learn about his secrets?
Ms. Gordon is a master. Extremely fast paced action, desperation, insanity, loss, and love, she will put you through the ringer in this one. You will feel exactly how she intends you to feel. Some people will die and you can't seen really care and others will make you cry. The series is unlike any other, pure perfection.
I really can't say much more because there are things that I do not want to spoil all the fun!

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!!!!!!!!!

On my review of Enchantment I said it was a sweet love story... if that's true Taken it's slight darker counterpart. While I really enjoyed Enchantment I lovedTaken. I had not expected to like Enchantment so much when I picked it up but it pleasantly surprised me. Taken pulled me out of my chair into a gripping adventure, it was absolutely more my style. I still feel like you can safely let your teens read this series and enjoy it with them. It still has the same charm and wittiness of book 1 but as the saga progresses we gets pulled deeper into Channie and Josh's magical word and the endearing love story.
Charlotte Abel has proven that she can stand the heat and keep producing magical adventures for her fans to get lost in and I plan to have a front row seat!
This is just the Blurb I wrote after reading the ARC, I will finish it and still do one of my full reviews soon! But it just released so I wanted to get something up!
READ it!!!!! It's another steal at .99 cents just like Enchantment, highway robbery!

ADULT BOOK = ADULT REVIEW
Ok so if you know me you know I am a HUGE Kate Douglas Fan. I have all her stuff (some of it signed teehee) I buy whatever she puts out as soon as it comes out even though I may have beta read it or received an ARC... DOES NOT MATTER... she writes it, I buy it ;-)
I was so sad to see her Wolf Tales series end because you can read that series and see her progression from an erotica author to an author that writes amazing stories that happen to have lots and lots of steamy HOT sex. So this book made me ecstatic because it is written the same way. In Dream Bound we get that same feeling of love with our extremely hot love scenes.
MacArthur Dugan or "Mac" has spent the last twenty years and 60 million dollars building a facility to rescue his lost love Zianne from her prison in a spaceship hiding behind our moon. Mac recruits 6 professionals to bring them to the facility in hopes of getting them to project their sexual fantasies into space, thus enabling the Nyrians to take form and contact them. I am really not doing this story any justice there is so much more to it but I don't want to give anything away.
What you need to know is this is an amazing story that has characters with depth. But also it is sexy as all get out. We have the master Douglas to write us some sizzling encounters. In this particular one you get a m/m, m/m/f, m/f/m and they are all toe curling erotic.
What did catch me off guard was her amazing cliffhanger, I don't remember her doing that to much to me!!! Now I am impatiently ....er.... eagerly waiting for Dream Unchained. *hint hint*
This one gets my top Rating the "Super Smooch" it has all the elements I love in an erotica novel.
Recommended for Adults who enjoy erotica with some same sex relationships.
And here is my Mac....
Bradley Cooper, yummy!
Stalk Kate! She is really fun to communicate with....
Also check out Dream Unbound on the publishers site it has all the information you need to go get yourself a copy!
P.S. I do have a signed copy from Kate to giveaway BUT Diva Karla (who I have turned into a massive Kate fan! Yay!) has commandeered and claimed this copy so.... it's going to Mexico where she promises to read it right away, review it, and then list it for a giveaway ;-) Follow the PBD blog and watch for it ;-) http://passionatebookdivas.com/?p=3149
P.S.S Kate I heart You! Love the proof for Dream Unchained.... now I am dreaming of the next one!!!!
*wispers* One more thing I just finished beta reading the 2nd generation Wolf Tales series and it is so freaking wicked awesome!!!!!(less)

Did you love Blood Warrior?
Wasn't it great? Suspenseful? Didn't you love Alexa and her journey?
Did you hold it dear to your heart as I have?
Throw it in the f-ing trash!
Why???? Because it is Hankey the Christmas poo next to Half Black Soul.
This past year has found breakout author H.D. Gordon very well indeed. Her writing has surpassed Blood Warrior by leaps and bounds and now we have an author who will reinvent the genre. H.D. Gordon is Stephen King for Young Adults. I know I can’t believe I said it either but mark my words this young author is going to be a best seller before you know it.
Alexa is magic, a tough young heroine with a very dark side to her. In book 2 we get a better look at that monster and what it is capable of. Also since half the book is written in Nelly’s perspective you get a very good look into her mind and it’s not all peaches and cream guys. We know Nelly is half Lamia already but she has held her power in check because Alexa has always been there to protect her. Now with Alexa on a mission to find out what really happened to their mother Nelly has to protect herself as well as try to figure out what he sister has discovered. Also on this journey, nope I don’t do spoilers so keep reading, we get a better look at Kayden and the stuff our sexy hero is made of *sigh*….
Can it get any better than that? DO NOT answer that because just when I think it can’t get any better, you know it does.
There are some huge bombshells Ms. Gordon drops on us in this book, surprises even I didn’t see coming. This is a gripping journey into a spectacular and unique world, there is nothing like it out in this genre. I said in my review of Blood Warrior that House of Night and Vampire Academy fans will enjoy this world, well… in this book H.D. Gordon separates herself from those well known titles because they are NOT like this darkly thrilling world.
I gave Blood Warrior 5 stars and now I wish I hadn’t because now I have to invent a new category as everything else will now be judged…BEAST!!!
You will love it if you like bad ass Chicks, sexy heros, fast paced stories, and epic adventures.
Edgy YA - recommend for older teens and Adults
Rating - BEAST
Release Date January 31st 2012, Do. Not. Miss. it.
You know I already know what Alexa & Nelly look like... they have their own covers.
And this is my new Jackson is this guy... have no clue who he is!

This Valentines Day I fell in Love with Jennifer L. Armentrout. I had been hearing through the grapevine about JLA an one particular grape has been rather loud about her work. So with all the faith that Kay @ K-books knows what she is talking about I picked up Obsidian first chance I had to read one of "my choice" reads. And now I can officially jump on Ms. Armentrout's space ship and enthusiastically follow her anywhere...
I am not usually a big sci-fi reader but there are a few I can like, well I guess now there is one I LOVE and that is the Lux series. Which is actually quite refreshing! Some Authors try to capture true sarcastic personalities and wittiness in their characters but JLA masters it. There is a delicate line that must not crossed for you to truly appreciate the humor in it without turning you off to the character. You just fall for this highly passionate and combustable relationship between Kat and Daemon in Obsidian. You never know if the are going to kiss or kill each other and you can get lost into the journey with them.
If you have not read this series yet you are seriously missing out! It's extraordinary!
I also love the quirky personality in Kat and the way she stands up to the enigma that is our sexy arrogant devastatingly handsome Daemon. One of my favorite Kat quotes...
“Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.”
And doesn't that just say it all!
So yes I will be eagerly awaiting the Prequel due out February 21st & the second book Onyx May 15th 2012. As well as purchasing everything that this budding new author has out.
And the other good news is that I have already stalked her website and google and gotten you all the links you will need to properly follow her along, in what I am sure with be a very long and extremely successful writing career.
This one gets my top rating above the five stars it was - BEAST!
And of coarse as always I will leave you with what I dug up and the characters. This one is easy becuase the cover is fabulous and matches the characters perfectly. Although there was not nearly enough pictures of the the models for my liking but here is what I was able to find...
I really thought there was no way this book was going to be just as good as Anomaly, I was right… It was better.

Calm down, I know, how can it be better??? I loved the last one how can this one be even better?
First there was no annoying upper crust dialog. Secondly I was never confused in this one as to what was going on with so and so’s balance, mantle, or order. If you read the first you know what I am talking about. If you didn’t read the first… well…. Um… why not? It’s only $.99 and now you have no idea what I am talking about. Do you? See that’s just silly.
K.C. King manages to seamlessly pull you back into the guardian world and also drops a few bombs on you when you get there.
Oh great now I have that horrible song from the 90’s with Shaquille O'Neal rapping about dropping bombs in my head!
Now where was I? Ok so I won’t go into the details of the book because I don’t want to ruin anything about Book 1 for you in case you have not read that. Plus there is what I said before about just not being smart enough to explain how this whole new world works in King’s Tri-Realms (in my review for book 1).
I cannot wait for book 3 and also know now that King is staying on my permanent to-read author list.
Thanks again to King for taking me on quite an amazing journey! (less)
