It has every element you could hope for in a read. Nickolas is a love/hate character, and Morgan you only want the best for this troubled young girl. Kathi Barton has a unique talent to pull you right into the story and leave you wanting more. This is a talented new author that we must all keep our eyes on, because her talent promises to bring us great things in the future.
Nickolas is the first book in the Grant Brothers series and I expect the following books to bring us just as much excitement as this one. You will not disappointed. (less)

The trials and tribulations her characters go through just to find love makes her stories all the more real. I just wish my story would end the way hers does.
Cain introduces us to the Waite family and from there we meet some wonderful characters and then a few not so wonderful. This story had me in tears a few times, but the ending OMG the ending ....AMAZING! Another great thing is we get to see what has been happening to another family of Barton's we have come to love...the Grant's make an appearance. I recommend this to anyone who needs a little romance but enjoys a little action. You will not be disappointed.
I can't wait for more books from this phenomenal author. Thank you so much Mrs. Barton :)(less)

Devin is such an amazing tale that will pull at your heart, you feel for the characters. Kathi Barton is the most talented new author I have ever read, her ability to put the reader in the story and keep you there to the very end is amazing. Make sure you don't have any plans when reading this book, because you won't want to put it down.
I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I will say get comfy, have a box of tissue ready and make sure you have easy access to a cold shower...cause it is going to get HOT!(less)

I Am Wolf is a phenomenal debut novel for author Joann Buchanan. She paints the most amazing pictures for her novel and you feel like someone has pick you up and put you right inside the pages.
The characters and well developed and as a reader you can relate to them. Some good lessons are shown in this book and the importance of friendship and sticking together when times get tough. Even though this is only the first book in the series we get to see the characters grow and mature as they work through what life has handed them.
The writing in this novel is so well done and it amazes me how she was able to go from a loving light hearted scene to a demonic and dark scene and place the reader in the head of a psychopath.
This story will take you through every emotion you can imagine and you will not want to put it down. I Am Wolf ids a page turner to the end. I believe there is something in this book for everyone and Joann must be a magical name, because J.K. Rowling needs to hold on to her throne, before Joann Buchanan kicks her right out of it. Look out Harry Potter, the wolves have descended and are coming for you!

This is book two in this series. To see my review of the first book Bloodlines click HERE. Torment picks up right where Bloodline left off and you are pulled right back into Keira's crazy world. I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first. The excitement is in full swing as we already know the characters. I don't have too much to say about this book. The author has created such an amazing world that will really have you question you perception of heaven, hell, angels and demons.
I don't want to give anything away with about this review, but if you have any kind of interest in the paranormal/supernatural you will enjoy this book. I can't wait for the next installment. Kendal has left us with one heck of a cliff hanger at the end, the kind that TV shows leave you with at during a season finally. Kendal also has an amazing talent that helps the reader visualize her world. You can see the story play out as you read and want more with every turn of the page. (less)

The protagonist Bree has lost her parents and is forced to start school in a new town. Realizing that her hand has been promised to the handsome neighbour boy, Bree rebels as she believes her father would not approve. She voices her concerns about her aunt’s arrangements, but tries to make the best of the situation. Although she still does not agree with it. Little does she know this was all her father’s doing and his reason for sheltering her all these years. The betrothal has been planned for years as Mr. March and Bree’s father have been long time friends, and the joining of the families will benefit both sides.
The handsome Gabriel and Bree continue to disagree, but the romantic tension is building between them faster than either realises. Before long the two young adults must admit what everyone else has known for some time now, and see where it may take them. Once they have accepted the arrangements set in motion by their parents, the relationship blossoms. Nothing could come between the two now, except for the confederate army and the Civil War. But Bree would never accept losing her love to war.
Readers will enjoy watching the romance build between Bree and Gabriel’s well as learning and watching how a family’s place in society can affect the lives of everyone around them. Some play in to the stereotypes as other refuse to judge others based on the jobs their family holds. Can a family accept another even when their stature in life does not match with who they love? Bree will make sure love wins out in the end, because love is all that really matters when if comes to family.
Author KAREN FULLER has done an incredible job with this story. The writing is superb, and her research for the historical element is second to none. Every character Karen introduces into the story, is well written, and fully developed. As a reader, I felt as if I were inside the tale watching it play out before my eyes. I could not have asked for anything more for this story and believe that everyone who enjoys romance will enjoy DESIRE EVERLASTING. Readers will love this story even if historical fiction is not your top choice as Karen does not allow the historical elements to overpower the story, only compliment it. I look forward to reading other works by the phenomenal Author KAREN FULLER.

I was a little slow starting it, because of so much going on in my life, but had to take it everywhere in case a had a minute or two to read.
Through out the story I found my heart beating faster with anticipation. I am in love with Michael, he is every girls dream. To have such complete love and admiration is something we all want. The second half of the book was so fast paced and exciting, I couldn't stop reading. I threw away my to do list and just sat to read. Even at night, I couldn't put it down no matter how tired and found my self falling alseep with it in my hands.
Mary ting has done a wonderful job building the characters and plot. She has instilled the need, passion and danger needed to make a book worth while. I can't wait for the next installment of this angelic series. (less)

Bloodlines is an exciting story about some young adults that are in the process of discovering their magical powers that have been passed down from generations before them. Now they need to find out where the power originated from and what to do with it.
Bloodlines has so many interesting plots and twists I can't even begin to name my favorite. The author has you cheering for one romance and then ten pages later wondering if another route would be better. I love stories like that.
When I first started reading I thought "Secret Circle", but WOW I was so wrong. This book has everything and any paranormal lover would love it. The author is great with her action and leaving the reader saying 'just one more chapter'.
For those readers that are picky about editing, you will be pleased. This book is very well edited with only one or two typos. Now I did have a few little grips, but really nothing major. I found that some of the terms/slang used were not suited for this book. The story takes place in Salem and the author is from the UK. Now not that there is anything wrong with the words used, I just think they are more commonly used in the UK than in the US. I haven't met many Young adults/teens that use words like rubbish, or fancy. Some of the other words are right, set off and cuddle. All perfectly good words, just used a little different here. Sometimes I found this distracting and it would pull me out of the story a little. Not a huge deal though because one sentence later I was sucked back in.
Lindsay Anne Kendal has done an amazing job of creating her own world and making the vision come to life on the page. There were a few spots I wish she had used more description, but that could have made for a very long book. The flow was perfectly paced and when I did have to put this book down, all I could think about was when can I read more.
Lastly, I love first person narrative but it can be difficult to pull off sometimes. The author has done a great job of pulling this off. I did find a few areas where I felt the story was being told rather than shown to me, but really who cares? This was a great story and I loved it so much I had to begin the second book Torment the following day.
This is a great book you don't want to miss out on. The story Ms. Kendal has created is amazing and I love her visions on magic, heaven, hell and friendship. Pick up Bloodlines today and get swept away into a new realm you probably never wanted to visit before. (less)
