The book had just the right amount of heat tempered with just the right amount of sweetness and I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a fun summer read at the beach or by the pool. (less)

After I read this, I went back and re-read Revealing Hamilton, and the prequel did so much to enhance the experience. She did a great job introducing us to Amelia and Don - a nice preview of their relationship. With just the right amount of creepiness, the scene in Amelia's apartment had me holding my breath. If you've already read Revealing Hamilton, read this and then re-read it. You won't be disappointed. Great job Sarah!(less)

I devoured this book in a day - I couldn't put it down! A new cast of characters join Amelia, Nick, Don and Molly. Zephyr had me hot and bothered until he showed his true colors. The relationship between Nick and Amelia continues to frustrate me in the best possible way. We meet the elusive Levi and though he's only in the book a few pages, his presence is felt throughout the book. Orion was a anomaly to me until I learned her truth. She then became someone I connected with. Marius is up to his old tricks but has decided to play out his drama on a larger scale. It isn't until the end when we see the true puppet master. I kept clicking my kindle thinking there was more but Ms. Carr was up to her old tricks and has me waiting with bated breath - what an amazing cliffhanger! Never, never saw that coming.(less)

From the beginning, I was able to relate with Amelia's thought process even though found myself trying to get her to do what I wanted - a sign, to me, that she is a memorable character that was well written. A chain of devastating betrayals eventually forces her to seek comfort in Max, a complete stranger who happens to have known the father that abandoned her as a child. Of course she's more than a little curious and does all she can to find out all she can about him.
Throughout the course of the story, we find Amelia in a race to stop put a stop to her grandfather, a man she thought was dead leaving her as an orphan. His meddling knows no bounds and Amelia must come to terms with a life he seems to have scripted for her.
With the help of Max, Molly and Nick, a man who's dealt with Amelia's grandfather in the past, she must race to put an end to her grandfather's influence. Unfortunately, he has bigger plans.
I absolutely loved this book and devoured it in one sitting. I've started reading Embracing Hamilton, the book that follows, and I am impressed with that book as well. Sarah Carr has a way with weaving a thriller full of twists and turns that leads up to an ending I didn't see coming. I highly recommend picking up this book.(less)

The newest in Nola's the Vesper series of novellas, she did not disappoint. In this story we meet Three, a Vesper maid and Jack, a trainman. They become locked in a forbidden relationship and the tension is palpable. If they get caught, it means death - for both of them. Within the story is the characterization of a few other kew players I look forward to getting to know. Sychar, Three's best friend and a male Vesper. The only problem is, even their relationship isn't allowed as male Vespers (Gents) and female Vespers (Maids) aren't allowed to interact - not to mention the Gents are taught to despise the Maids. In all, the movement of the novella was fast paced, timed well and wonderfully interesting. I enjoy reading Ms. Sarina's work and highly recommend this novella to anyone longing for a different kind of paranormal read.(less)

I was quickly able to formulate mental images and get immediately on board with the romance between Callie and Nycholas. The story was fast paced and clean - she chose her words carefully and there was nothing frivolous. I must say, after reading this, I am terribly intrigued as to what happens next in the story as this one set up what follows nicely. I can't wait to read the follow-up novels in the series. I highly recommend - it's a quick read and a real page turner. Just when I thought paranormal couldn't get more interesting, Ms. Sarina quickly dashed any possible doubts I could have. Vespers aren't your average paranormal vampire.... What's been written is a fresh take - no sparkles here! I loved that I was intrigued by the horror of the Vespers but still invested enough to care about them. Not only has she invented a new character to fear and love but se's twisted the Biblical FanFic to a new level.(less)

It took me a little bit to get into Baby but once I did, I finished it in one sitting. I felt bad for the main character, Netty, and joined her in her hatred for her wealthy, abusive husband - who also happens to "own" most of the town and the people in it. I cheered her on when she finally decided enough was enough and escaped back to her family farm and start a new life. Though the description of Baby's origins had me a bit confused - I attribute that to the fact that I don't generally read sci-fi - the relationship between Baby and Netty was described well. It was more than friendship and more than a bond between a mother and child. It was almost as if they were two parts of one whole. I really enjoyed the development of their relationship. Eventually Wil came into the picture and I was hoping he and Netty would become something more - they were so perfect for each other. Though their relationship was somewhat short-lived, it was obvious they were destined to be together for longer than their physical lives would allow. And because of this, Robert finally gets what he deserves in the end.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and Accinni's writing style. I am happy that I read out of my comfort zone for the first time in a long time.(less)
