Jack Langley won’t just melt your heart in Playing With Fire, he’ll melt your knickers as well. The cold, crisp night air nipped at my skin like cat teeth, and the warmth stirring inside me only made it feel colder in contrast. I hurried towards the edge of the woods where Jack requested I meet him after the house was settled in sleep. I hugged myself, and rubbed my hands up and down my arms […]

Hell hasn’t frozen over, Lorelie was sent to Maine. (You can check out my review for books one and two in this trilogy here, and here.) At the end of book two in the Darklight trilogy, Lorelei was ghosted away to a boarding school in Maine to keep her safe from the restless spirits and forces of evil that were hunting her down back  in Riley’s Switch, New Mexico.  She is the last prophet , […]

BOO!ks for October/ARC Review: Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst

October 9, 2013 4 Comments Regina

Conjured is Magical Realism at it’s finest. (Okay, I am posting this ARC review waaaaay late, but as the saying goes, “Better late, than NEVER!” ) Conjured is the kind of story that makes me want to invent words to use to describe it. Basic vocabulary seems unfitting for such a unique story. After reading it, the first thought that sprung to mind was, ” Man, I really want to interview this author!”.  The cover […]

I discovered this series after finishing Obsidian, by Jennifer Armentrout. I was desperate to chase the first book in the Lux series with something that had romance, tension, and a Sci-Fi edge to it. Not surprisingly, Amazon came to the rescue. ” Your cart is empty, ” Amazon says. “Give it purpose,” Amazon says. So, of course, unable to ignore these desperate pleas to give my cart meaning any longer, I looked at the recommendations […]

I have tried to keep this first post mostly spoiler free, but I can’t promise the same for the rest of the reviews in this series. I remember watching the Pilot of Roswell on television as if it were yesterday. The chemistry between the cast, and the way they played their characters felt true. I discovered the books after the show shot an arrow through my heart like cupid. I was a little nervous to […]

      “Until now, I’ve never loved anyone except Aurora. It’s more than his music, more than even the smell of his skin. More than the way his body is like a magnet calling all the iron in my blood. He’s a drug that’s hooked me on the very first trip. “   Do you remember the hard, black, book sized  journals you had to keep in high-school if you were in photography or […]

Page Morgan had me at Sangiovese. If you haven’t read the first book in this series by Page Morgan, The Beautiful and the Cursed, then you can check out my review of it here. This short and satisfying novella had me ready to leave my house and go buy some wine and cheese to enjoy it with. I was intoxicated with the story by the first page.  Marco is Italian. I LOVE all things Italian. […]

My favorite red-headed pixie chic is back full force in Death, Doom, and Detention. Many revelations (quite similar to the Book of Revelations)  left Lorelei with an identity crisis and warring emotions in Death and the Girl Next Door. She  found out the boy she’s in love with is the Angel of Death, her creepy stalker is her Nephilim body-guard, and there is a dormant demon residing in her. And that’s just a short list. Now, […]

Darynda Jones had me at FIVE FEET TALL…“I lowered my voice, controlled the tone and inflection of every word, every syllable, striving to make myself sound menacing. I took up a mere five feet of vertical air space, so menacing was not always easy for me to accomplish.” Welcome to the world of Lorelei McAlister. At five feet tall, red-headed, and alabaster complected, Darynda Jones creates quite the firecracker in our petite heroine. Lorelei’s parents […]

I had to read this book because the guy on the cover was calling to me. I mean, come on. Just look at the perfectly subtle, bow-shaped pout of those lips. Could you resist such pillows of perfection? The rest of that bad boy face isn’t bad, either. Now that we have established that I’m shallow, let’s take a deeper look at this book. Dylan is our hunk on the cover. An outcast since birth, […]

ARC Review: Demonic Dora (Demon Diaries #1)

June 22, 2013 3 Comments Regina

Ten Hail Mary’s and some Bible scriptures later, I review Demonic Dora. Be ready to confess your sins after reading this book. It’s sacrilegious, vulgar…..and unfortunately, VERY FUNNY. I picked this book to read because I liked the Goth cover and name. I honestly can’t even remember if I read what the book was about, so I went into it not knowing what to expect.   I probably should have known what to expect. This […]

 The Antidote by St. Vincent Dante gets ready to this song. 🙂 Contrary to popular belief, Dante Walker is a little piece of Heaven on Earth.    Hey, guys. My name’s Regina. A while back I read this book called The Collector. One of my homegirls said I would like it, so I gave it a shot.  Dante flippin’ Walker. I really didn’t want to like this guy. I heard he gave Daemon Black from […]

“You’re my human.” Can I really be attracted to a gargoyle? That was the question I asked myself while debating whether or not to read this book. The mention of gargoyles struck up cemented images in my head of hog-nosed, crumbling stone creatures ready to tumble-down from their lofty perch and end me. Then, the memory of The Gargoyles cartoon from a decade ago hit me like a ton of bricks, and I recalled how […]

I’m at Target staring at the empty spot where the book I drove here for should be. It’s close to 10:00 p.m. , and I don’t have the energy to frantically look behind all of the other books on the isle like I normally would, so I do a quick sweep with my eyes for an appealing cover and land on Fated.  The girl on the pretty purple cover makes me want to run to […]

I totally picked up the first book in this series because the glossy purple and black cover called to me. The almost alliteration of A’s in the title pleased my nerdy side, and the elegant looking woman on the cover was someone I wouldn’t mind living vicariously through. Already sold on the aesthetic appeal of the cover, I read the blurb on the back and gave a little squeal at the name Tristan (one of our main […]

OH H-O-L-Y CRAP. So Obsession came out on Friday (5/31), but I was lucky enough to win an ARC from the Publisher the night before so I got an early start on my reading!! This book was a great way to hold us ADULT fans of the LUX series over until the release of Origin. When I found out that JLA was releasing an adult book from the LUX universe I got super excited!!

When I saw the cover of this book, I gave my imaginary friend a high-five.  An ominous looking house with a stylishly Gothic girl standing in front? Yes, please! Hannah Smith, a fiery, auburn haired 18-year-old, has been living in an attic as the companion of Lady Violet Wade for the past 15 years of her life. Hannah and Lady Violet both have ”conditions” that have kept them tucked away as outcasts and shunned by […]
