It has a creative and unique spin on how to fight demons and I was captivated from the synopsis but the story and characters are so much more.
Natasha has been plagued with nightmares of her father killing her mother when she was just a child in Russia. Never understanding the reason behind it she has never gotten close to anyone and being is foster care doesn’t help. But all that changes when Chuck comes into her life. He makes her feel loved but her foster mom Bambi is jealous of the relationship and murders him. But Chuck is able to help Natasha before he dies by giving her the deed to her family’s farm in Russia and a plan ticket to go back so she can finally get the answers she has always wanted.
Once there Natasha finds out that demons are real and that there is ancient painting under her family’s farmhouse. She must restore it before any of them escape. But it’s not easy when the demons can mess with her mind as she tries to repair the cracks but lucky for her she has three Russian Knights who are tasked with protecting her while she does this. Anatoly who is the head of the Knights is everything that Natasha wants in a man but there is rules against being with her protectors. But when the head demon pulls Anatoly into the painting all rules go out the window when Natasha goes into the painting to pull out the man she loves. But can she get to him in time before he is killed and get them both back to safety?
I enjoyed getting to know all the characters in this story even when their actions made it hard to like them. Bambi is one of those characters. She is uncaring and selfish and treated Natasha as nothing more than a check. But when she reveals things about her past to Natasha I understood her better, I still didn’t like her but at least I didn’t hate her.
Watching Natasha getting to learn about her past and find her strength was an amazing part of the story for me. I’m not sure if I could have handled everything she went through at seventeen. The way she went into the painting to save Anatoly had me on the edge of my seat. I was so scared for the both of them. I kept hoping she would get to him in time and that they would be able to get free. But I won’t tell you if she did you will have to read the book to find out if they did and if they break the rules for their love. 4/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

Lexi is a newly changed vampire and she needs to learn all about her new life. The ins and outs, facts, myths, what other vampires she can trust, and her future. She attends her own funeral, finds her first love, heart break, family, and friends all while understanding her life as a vampire.
This is not the usual vampire book that I read. It’s not about sex, violence, and killing. It could actually be considered a guide to becoming a vampire and learning what they go through as they learn the ins and outs. But the one thing that stands out the most for me is that no matter if you’re mortal or immortal you can’t run from your past or your hurting. You need to heal from the inside out and move forward so you can be truly happy with your life and yourself. 4/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

Eric makes the varsity soccer team as a goalie and with his hidden ability he can tell where the ball is going to go and can block it every time. He also falls for the new girl Rene so everything seems to be going his way. That is until his dreams start to haunt him and his best friend turns against him can Eric get back on his game and make everything right again.
I am a huge soccer fan so I was excited to read a book that has soccer in it. But you don’t have to enjoy soccer to like this book as the characters are very likeable and you will find yourself rooting for them. I loved the connection between Eric and Rene they are very sweet but Eric is defiantly my favorite character in this book. He is a really stand up guy who genuinely loves and cares about the people in his life and even his best friend when he turns on him. I just really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Tracy in the future. 4/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

Michelle and Aaron are what vampires are supposed to be. They are dark, gritty, and make no apologies for being vampires and doing what they need to do to survive. Don’t get me wrong I love all vampire books but it’s nice to have vampires that are dark and twisted. Not to mention Michelle and Aaron are just steamy sexy. This is defiantly a series that is on my must buy list the day of release and than I am left wanting more as I devour the books in one sitting. Please Travis write faster so I don’t have to wait so long in between books. 5/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

I so had to read this book and I am so glad I did. I loved every minute of this book and when I was finished I wanted the next book immediately.
I loved Addison. She is shy, and dorky but if you had to deal with the weird things she has you would understand. She sees random dark holes that open up and bring extreme cold and strange creatures with it so I can understand her acting the way she does. She has always felt she was the crazy one in the world and this instantly made me love her and root for her through the book. But Allison really comes into her own during the storyline and I enjoyed watching her growth through the book.
Asher is a total ass! I wanted to smack him so many times while reading this book but as we learn about his past I understood him more and wanted him to work through his demons. WOW what he does at the end of the book had me crying and I can't wait for the next book to see more of him.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal books with twists and turns, a heroine you can't help but love and root for, and a tortured hero you wanna smack but still find sexy. I am impatiently waiting for the next book. 5/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

While she is out with her best friend Deke they barely escape being attacked by a horde of zombies. They make it to their high school where they see some more survivors from her school. Which include the boy Donna has a crush on and the girl she hates. Donna starts getting confused as her best friend Deke and the boy she’s had a crush on both start acting different towards her. But that is the least of her worries. They are running out of supplies and the zombies are closing in but some of these zombies are not your typical I want to eat your brains zombies. They have a plan and Donna is a big part of that plan as they want her for her special ability and if she has any chance of survival she will need to listen to those voices.
Donna is one of those characters that got on my nerves at times with not willing to stand up and help but she is also very scared so I understood that. I’m not sure I could handle the situation any better and I was able to connect with that with her. Deke is very brave and he will go out of his way to help others. He did get annoyed with Donna at times but he still will do anything for her which made me love him even more. The other characters are well written and add to the story line as well.
I really enjoyed this book and the spin on the zombies was refreshing. I am looking forward to reading more from Alison in the future. 4/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

I thought this book was about a girl who heard voices in her head but as I started reading it there was so much more to it. There is a little romance in the book which isn’t a bad thing but usually when I read a horror book there is none.
The story line flows well and I was able to like and relate to the characters. I really liked how the horror aspect wasn’t as graphic as it can be in books but as this being a YA book that could be why it was written that way. The story line had me glued to the book the whole time. I am defiantly looking forward to reading more books from Whitney A. Miller. 4/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

But just when you think they can have an easy time of their new romance Annie’s other life as Cassandra, Rock Star/Movie Actress starts to affect EJ’s nobody famous life when the paparazzi want to know who the new mystery man in her life is.
The love of EJ and Annie is very strong but things keep getting thrown at them to try and destroy the love they have for one another. Just when I thought they got over the last hurdle something else is thrown at them. Through it all Annie is trying to find the culprit all the while trying to get her career back on track. I felt so bad for the two of them having to fight to keep their love and lives from being destroyed. If it was me I don’t know if I could have my life on full view as EJ does being with someone who is famous. I think he handles it well. I did keep wondering though if they were going to be able to overcome all the hurdles. But if you want to know you need to read Lucky Star for yourself. 4/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

With each book I fell more in love with the characters especially Kasey and Dion. But if you read the first two books than you know not everything has been easy for them and now more than ever things are not getting easier since Kasey has to go up against Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon. We get more of the other Gods ands Goddess but even though they are banished to Earth with no powers they are not helpless. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time reading this book and hoping that the group would all be okay. But to know if Kasey, Dion, and his brothers survive going up against the Gods you will have to read the final book in the Symbol of Hope trilogy. 5/5 Bloody Fangs (less)

Selena has dreams of the future but she can't give you the winning lottery numbers so don't ask as her visions are not like that. Only her grandparents and best friends know about her dreams. She never knows when the things will happen she dreams about just that they will. But when she dreams of her own death she is more than freaked out and deicides to keep it to herself.
Dillan was once a guardian but he messes up and is demoted to a lower rank and sent to live with his uncle and act as a normal teenager even having to go to school. He thinks his punishment will be boring that is until he meets Selena and gets a shock. He tries to ignore her but he can't fight the electric pull he feels towards her.
I loved the banter between Selena and Dillan. It had me laughing out loud at times but there was a few times I wanted to smack one or both of them through the book. There was some twists that shocked me and some unanswered qestions are left but I enjoyed reading Til Death and I can't wait for the next book. 4/5 Bloody Fangs(less)

My only complaint is I read it too quickly and now I want the next book as the ending left me wanting more.
There are two types of people in this book, ones who are born with gifts and ones who are not. Van comes from a gifted family but they believe she doesn't have one. However she has a very strong gift. The gift of mind and it terrifies her so much that she never uses it and leads people to believe she is a normal person. It also helps that she has moved away from her family and friends to make a new life for herself. However with her child hood best friend getting married Van is forced to go home and face everything and everyone she has fled from including the love of her life Caine. But when gifted people start disappearing Van, Caine, and her brother start looking into it and in the process Van and Caine are kidnapped. She has to make the choice to use her gift to help them escape but in doing so she is forced to reveal her biggest lie to everyone she loves.
I absolutely loved this book. I was hooked from the very first page and read it in one sitting. Van and Caine have become two of my favorite characters I have read this year. Not to mention Caine is my new book boyfriend. He is totally swoon worthy. Even when he was being stubborn but Van was just as hard headed and it did make me want to smack them both to make them realize how perfect for one another they are.
The ending is my only issue with this book as it ends with a cliff hanger and I have a love/hate relationship with those. I am hoping that Rasha writes quicker so I can have more Van and Caine this year.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a kick ass heroine, swoon worthy heroes, and a refreshing twist in the paranormal genre. 5/5 Bloody Fangs (less)
