I haven't read to much of mermaid books and they haven't really brought much interest to me but I really enjoyed reading this one. At first it did start out slow then it picked up towards the middle.
Florence is quite and is to herself. She feels that there is no place where she can be herself or where she can fit in. Her mother does not make it any better. While on a field trip she is kidnapped by a mermaid and is introduced to their world. I really like Florence character and how she changed from the girl that we knew in the beginning to growing into her own towards the end.
This book is field with adventures, a love triangle, and other mysteries that take place. The plot was written well and it was a really nice read.

The story opens with Katie who is a senior in high school. She has always held a crush on a childhood friend named Wes but he constantly breaks her heart over and over. When she finally thinks she has officially given him up she is always thrown back into his charm. It took me a while to connect with Katie. She was irritating to me especially at the beginning of the story. When she tries to convince her mother that Wes and his father are not what it seems over and over again and is constantly in disbelief of the truth it was a bit frustrating. Going into the story that faded away and I enjoyed the character.
Josh who is the popular kid at school starts to notice Katie and starts to spend time with her. Wes shows his disapproval of how close she is getting with Josh and tells her to leave him alone. Katie only brush it off and assume it is jealousy and the only reason why Wes would be concern . Things aren't what they seem between the two boys.
Katie's world is thrown upside down and what she thought was real and the truth is totally the opposite.
I loved the plot of the story. Ever since I read The Collector by Victoria Scott I have been into the demon type books. I enjoyed reading this story and I look forward to reading more by this author.

This story was very good and written in a way that makes it feel like you are apart of the story. That is what I love about reading stories like this. The story opens with four teens who go to a cemetery to rub tombstones. They each research their tombstone that they rubbed and see what they can learn from that person and find out that the spirits have some unfinished business.
The characters were well thought out and how the author grasped the teens' emotions was really good. Josie lost her mother to cancer when she was young. It was her idea to do the tomb rubbings. Casey feels like her parents do not notice her and that she is invisible. It is like she is living in the shadow of her older brother. Seth parents are divorced because of infidelity and he does not get along with his father. Blaze lives with a controlling and outspoken mother.
Each of these characters have a different background but they connect so well. While was reading the story I felt for each character and I could understand where the characters were coming from.

Wrath paints a vivid picture of an apocalyptic world that could easily play out on a movie screen with no detail left untold. All the classic elements of a great story are there, good versus evil, romance, drama, danger, action and so much more. An alliance of sorts is formed by the “survivors”, the lead characters as they come together to fight against the opposition in effort to make things better. The characters are well developed and the story leads you to a point where you want to know what will happen next!
Any novel that keeps my interest because I can see the picture playing out in my mind as I am reading is stellar in my book! E fits this criteria!
I can’t wait to see what kind of wrath Kate comes up with for the next book!! ...more

I enjoyed reading Sweet Unrest and what had drawn me to read it was the setting. I know I have said this before but I love New Orleans and everythingI enjoyed reading Sweet Unrest and what had drawn me to read it was the setting. I know I have said this before but I love New Orleans and everything about it. If I see a book that is set in New Orleans I will read it whether it is good or not so good.
Sweet Unrest was an easy read and at most times it was very predictable. I knew that when it got to certain parts of the story where questions start to raise it was kind of obvious who did what. At times it did feel rushed and the ending for me could have been a bit more. The ending wasn't bad but it wasn't as good either.
The setting of the book was in New Orleans and the author did a good job with her research of the city and how to describe it. The hot muggy summers and the cool summer air at night was right on point. I'm from Louisiana and I think everyone that lives in Louisiana have a love/hate relationship with the weather.
Lucy and Alex relationship was a bit complicated and I didn't connect with them. At certain points in the story I did but it did not hold on. Towards the end I felt it was rushed on Lucy's part. I didn't quite feel the chemistry between the two.
Like I said, this book was an easy read and while it wasn't as great for me it still was a good book.
This is the first book in the Broken Destiny Trilogy by Jeanine Frost. This story opens in Bennington, Vermont. Ivy is looking for her missing sisterThis is the first book in the Broken Destiny Trilogy by Jeanine Frost. This story opens in Bennington, Vermont. Ivy is looking for her missing sister which Bennington happens to be the last place her sister was seen. All through out her life Ivy has been having visions that she has not been able to explain which leads her to seeing doctors and taking medication. Even though none of that works she still have the visions but does not tell anyone that they are still occurring. After her accident at the B&B she goes back to her hotel and their she meets Adrian. He opens a world to her about her visions that she had no idea existed and what her fate is.
What I liked about this story was how it got right to the point but not in a bad way without giving everything away at the very beginning. It was a page turner from the first page until the end. Ivy's character was very interesting to read about. I loved her no BS attitude and how she takes action even though she may not come out on top she still does not give up.
Adrienwas full of secrets and I was dying to find out what he is. It was those moments when he would open up just enough and then close off at the last second. I understood why he was secretive and a part of me had hurt for him because it was nothing that he had brought upon himself. It was passed down.
Ivy and Adrien were good together but it took me a moment to connect to them together. It was instant but it didn't hope right into the I Love You's. It played out throughout the story.
There was a bit of both paranormal and biblical background added into the story which I thought was neat. Overall I enjoyed reading this story and I look forward to the rest of the series.

I loved this one just as much as the first one. Madame Lilly (Odara) has been abused to the point where she seeks voodoo and becomes Madame Lilly. With so much anger and hurt she has only one thing set and that is revenge. She is broken and her soul is shatter. The girl from the very beginning of this story is lost.
In this short story everything from demonic possession, darkness, and in detail graphics that there is no problem for the imagination is on the edge. The characters are very thought out and the life of the story seems so real. Theolus and Hearon are vicious lol. You will be imagining yourself in the deep swamps of Louisiana. This is one of those stories that reminds me of the saying "Treat people how you want to be treated".
I love a good story that is set in Louisiana because that is where I live. I love a good story even more when it is set in New Orleans because I love everything about that city. I hope to one day visit.

I think that I will love anything that comes from this author because it was so freaking good!!!! If you haven't read the first book then STOP and read it.
Now if you have lets fangirl together :).
The Boy picks up right after the ending of The Girl. Everything has changed and sides has to be chosen. The whole clan's lives are changed. That is all I'm going to say on that note. I don't want to give the cliffhanger away.
The Girl (bk1) set the second book up really nice and I was happy for that. It helps you understand it better. In this part of the story I was able to understand and connect with the secondary characters from the first one. We got more of Darby whom I love. I think me and her could be best friends (minus the fangs lol). I like Jools a lot more in the second one than I did in the first book. She is maturing and I like that about her. She now has responsibilities as the head of the New York Branch.
To me this one had more action in it and some backstabbing going on. It was all nonstop. From the first page all the way to the end was engaging and kept me on the edge of my seat. I love being sucked into the Sanctum world and how the author was able to create it amazes me. The writing style and plot was great. All of the characters are unique and how it all comes together just puts one big smile on my face 8D.
I can't wait to get my hands on the next one in the series!!

This story is a mixture of suspense, mystery, and romance all together. What I love about this story is that we get to see what both of the characters are thinking in the chapters so that is a plus for me. The story starts off in Toronto. Adam and Raina have different lives. Adam is a billionaire and has everything that he could ever want or need. Raina is a graphic designer and keeps mostly to herself.
Adam is an atheist and doesn't have has little appreciation to the things that he has. Raina, who is faithful tries to be the example that Adam needs and tries to show him just how blessed he really is. Their relationship was very interesting to read. It was more centered around trust and leaping out on "faith" that what really meets the eye. They respect each other.
I will admit it took some time for me to connect to the characters but once I kept reading I was hooked. I loved reading about these two and their journey. This is book One and to finish their story you have to read the next ones. The ending made sure of that. :)
This is a New Adult novel about family secrets, who to trust, betrayal, and love. I started reading and could not put it down. I enjoyed it so much. The characters in the story I was able to connect with when I'm able to put myself in the book with the characters that is a plus. The only thing that I would have to say about this book is for me it dragged the whole time until towards the end. It wasn't a bad thing but I felt that some of the things that was going on could have been reveled not to early but earlier than it did.
Ella is a strong character. She has experience a broken heart with the death of her boyfriend. She had to go through a lot of therapy and medication to get better. What she doesn't tell her parents is that she has been having the recurring dreams that haunt her. Afraid that if she tells them she will have to go through the whole process of therapy and medication again. To get over and try to start on a fresh new start she goes to a different state for college with her best friend. There she meets Tristan.
Tristan is the playboy of the school and every girl wants him. When he set his sights on Ella there was nothing that was going to stop him from getting her even if it took more that a few of his famous pick up lines. Underneath all that charade he deeply loves Ella and would die to protect her.
I don't want to give to much away because I don't want to spoil it for you. Overall this is a really good book and I enjoyed reading it.

I'm going to leave the review short and sweet because I don't want to give anything away. It's a mystery :))) I love a really good mystery and sometimes they are hard to come by but Things in Ditches was just that. It was humorous and a page turner. This murder mystery takes place in a small town in Minnesota. is a story of Dutch who is the suspect that killed Vicky who was found dead in a ditch. Throughout the story we are told of Vicky's life and how she ended up deceased and left in the ditch. Dutch who is experiencing murder/suicide is on the run. The plot was very thought out and I enjoyed reading it so much. As I said it is humorous and has some twist in the story. It reminded me of Perry Mason, Murder She wrote, and all of those other t.v shows that are like that. I look forward to reading more books by this author. Rating 5stars Recommend? Yes!!...more

There was different sidReading Heart of Eternity was very interesting to read. It was a very good, spiritual, and powerful read that I enjoy reading. There was different sides to look at as far as one being good and the other evil.
Naida is twenty one years old and has cancer. She goes against what her parents want as far as taking the right necessities to be healed and goes on spiritual route. To do that she goes to a spiritual healer called Zachriel. I love how at the beginning she knew what she wanted to do and also I liked that her parents understood what she wanted.
Jay is what we would consider the bad boy of the story. He is a womanizer and heart breaker. Danger is what he lives for and love is something that he consider he does not want. His life is nothing but heartache and pain and has no conscience for anyone else.
When they come together they realize how much they really need each other.
Naida and Jay's story had me captivated from the beginning to the end. The writing style was great and flowed smoothly. The plot was very mature and thought out. As I said before, it is a powerful read of finding one's self and overcoming obstacles life throws at us.
This book was so enjoyable to read and I loved every moment of it.

There is betrayal, action, and romance all tied into one story(who doesn't love all of that? lol). This story takes place after World War V and is ruled by the "Commander". The world has to stay pure from worldly vices. Sinners are the people who sin and when they are caught they get sent to the "Hole". The seven deadly sins are what the Commander feels is reason for the chaos and the destruction of the society. People who are in those ranks of sin are judged and sent to the Hole for the rest of their lives. Each person who is in the Hole will be colored based on the sin that they committed.
Being accused of a crime that she did not commit Lexi has been sent to the Hole. Having everything stripped away from her she did not fight at first nor did she try to prove her innocence because of the fact that no one would actually believe her if she tried. I loved reading Lexi's character because she is a genuine unique person. She endured so much and even though she wanted to end everything at one moment she still pushed through. The first half of the book my heart was breaking because of the emotional roller coaster happening. I'm not a big fan for the blood and guts everywhere but the story was that good for me to overlook it and keep reading.
Cole is the guard that is assigned to Lexi. At first she was just an assignment but that eventually falls into something much more :).
"I never planned on falling for you. You were just an assignment. But it just sort of happened and now... There's not a single thing I would change about you. When you smile, my entire world stops. All I see is you. I need you."
But a guard falling in love with a sinner has some serious consequences. Cole was perfect throughout the story. His need to protect her was important to him throughout the story. Things may have started out shaky between them but I'm glad it blossomed into better things.:))))))
I enjoyed reading this story very much and I look forward to reading the rest in the series!
I could not wait to read this book. I have been having it in my TBR pile since it came out and I am just now able to read and review it.
This story opens with Sam who was missing for four days. She has no memory of what happens and her life seems like a puzzle with missing pieces. She realize that girl that she used to be is no longer her and that the personality that she has now is the way it should be. Even though Sam is safe and back at home her best friend Cassie is still missing.
This story had me from page one. It was great in suspense and mystery. I got to see the who Sam was before she went missing and how much she has changed after. Even though her and Cassie were best friends there was still some friction between them. Her friends would call it "frenemy". Everyone around her she no longer knows and wonder how she even put up with them. Her friends for example and her boyfriend.
I don't normally read mystery books. I am a mystery television junky but I really enjoyed reading this. I was thinking one way and the author completely turned it around in a way that I did not see coming.

I know that from now on whatever is written by this author I am going to love it. I have never been to New Orleans although I live in Louisiana. I really can't wait to go.
In this short story we have our main character Odara. She was wealthy and had everything that she needed. She fell into what she thought was true love and a fairy-tale but things were not what they seemed. On her wedding night to Henry Nicolas she found out that it was nothing what she thought it would be. For twelve years she went through abuse physically and mentally. It was so bad that the heart that she felt for anyone turned cold and the only thing that she wanted was revenge. That is when she turns to voodoo and becomes Madame Lilly.
I felt so bad for Odara because of how she was treated. I could understand her bitterness towards everyone. She literally went through hell with her husband. My heart broke for her and I wanted her to be free. She got what she wanted but everything comes with a cost
Then we have Theolus and Hearon. They are ruthless and cutthroat spirits and are under Madame Lilly's control. I am very curious of Theolus and Lilly's relationship (hint hint hehe)
I have high bets that Elijah is my favorite character. He is only introduced for just a second but that small presents creates a huge impact on the story.
Even though this is a short story it is so much going on and it has you on the edge of you seat. You won't even know the story is over until you turn the page and realize that it is over. The mystery and suspense killed me and the ending was great!

In my White Hot Kiss review I pretty much established where I wanted to go and who's side I was on. With Layla being part warden and part demon I wanted her to embrace the latter. Upon reading this book some of my feeling are in the air.
In this story there is a mystery that has everyone one wondering or some. Zanye and Roth have to work together for the sake of Layla and then there are some lies in between the two of them. This book was centered mostly around Layla and Zayne's relationship. She trust Zayne with everything but she knows deep down that she can be herself with Roth. Some situations that occurred in the story proved that (not going to spoil it :)). I did feel that Layla had some serious moments where she needed to "grow up" and I hope that in the next installment she is a bit more mature. Still, I love her.
Now for a bit fangirling. I honestly can't decided where this triangle is going. Through the story I was all for happy for Zayne for stepping up and showing Lalya just how he felt HINT: CAR SCENE Then I remembered I hate love triangles. I knew that Layla still had strong feelings for Roth and that part of her would never go away no matter how hard he tried to push her away from him and vice versa. HINT: THE BEDROOM SCENE. She didn't quite know which direction to take. Roth still had his bad boy charm (which I loved) but there is a much softer side of him that is displayed from the story. He and Zayne both have the same thing in common and that is Layla. Everyone one is trying to figure out the answer to the big question "Who will she be with?" As I said before, I can't decide.
(SIGHS) The ending. I turned to page on my kindle and when I saw it go to the Amazon page my jaw hit the floor. It could not end like that...it..just couldn't. I have to wait until the July of 2015 to get my hands on the next book.
Overall I loved reading Stone Cold Touch and all of it's goodness.
Jennifer Armentrout is by far is one my favorite Y.A. authors! She is an incredible writer and she just keeps getting better. I fangirl over her Lux sJennifer Armentrout is by far is one my favorite Y.A. authors! She is an incredible writer and she just keeps getting better. I fangirl over her Lux series because Daemon is my book boyfriend lol.
White Hot Kiss was so much fun to read and I enjoyed reading it. Layla is a 17 year old who is half warden and half demon. A warden is a race of gargoyles that hunt demons and keep humanity safe. Layla sometimes feels like she doesn't belong with the Wardens who adopted her when she was little because she doesn't quite fit in. She has the power to take a soul if she kisses or even if she gets to close to someone. That makes it very difficult for Layla to have relationships.
I felt two ways while reading about Layla. When she was with the Wardens she seemed just a bit childish and when she was with her friends and Roth she seemed mature. That was just how I felt while reading. Its not a bad thing but sometimes she did come off as whinny.
Zanye is Layla's best friend and he is a Warden. She wants to be with him but knows that he is off limits because of what he is. He is very protective of her and will do anything for her. A part of me thinks that he likes Layla too but we will just have to wait and find out if he does.
Roth is the sexy bad boy of the story and he is everything that Layla should not want but unlike everyone else he understands her. He is an Upper Level demon and he has been sent to keep watch of her. The school scene after they first met had me fangirling all over the place. She changes him and he doesn't realize it until it is put to the test.
At first could not decide if I was team Zanye or Roth. Most of the time I am automatically drawn to the bad/good guy but the good guy in this one has me having a soft spot for him also. I started to go over and think about the story and by just a slight amount of points I would have to say team Roth. I can still have a soft spot for Zayne and like him also.
