Excerpt:
By the time I’d examined his tanned calves, the masculinity of his
skin was lingering in the air between us. He smelt sensational, and I found
myself uncontrollably breathing in as I rose.

Now curious to see more, I kept going. But as I began to move, an
odd sensation of warmth radiating from him came over me; it was almost
like an invisible hand caressing my skin. My heart fluttered at the idea
of it, and suddenly blood was rushing to all the wrong places as I felt an
unexpected thrill of anticipation.

After tracing his body all the way up to his chest, my wandering
eyes didn’t seem to want to stop, and they were soon up to his neck and
following the stubble along his jaw, right up to his light brown hair.

And then he spoke. The sound of his voice jolted me from my
daydream and pulled my gaze to his.

Addison!” I gasped as our eyes collided.

From the moment the name left my lips, my eyes widened ... stared
... and became lost in his. As a rush of airy weightlessness floated me
from the floor, suddenly everything felt more enhanced, more real, like
something inside me had suddenly woken up.

It was an intoxicating feeling and the longer I stood entranced, the
further his beautiful blue eyes reached into mine. Somehow they were
knocking on the door to my heart, stirring something so powerful it made
me want to cry and laugh at the same time and, for a brief second, there
was something in his eyes that made me feel complete.

Suddenly his brows squeezed then softened. “Ah ... um ... sorry about
the electric shock.” He smiled. “But who’s Addison?”

My throat tightened as warmth flushed my cheeks. Who the hell
was Addison?

Embarrassment pulled my eyes from his. “Oh,” I said, choking on my
words, “Um ... ah ... no ... I don’t know anyone called Addison ... I mean, um ... ”

“Oh!” He smiled cheekily as he leaned towards me and whispered.
“You sounded so convinced I was him ... I thought for a second I could
be. I mean, if you wanted me to be.”

My face shot back to his, words jamming in my throat as I stared.
Who was this guy, this stranger? In just a few seconds he’d turned my soul
inside out, and now he was charming me with his words as well.

As his lips rose into a smile, I couldn’t help but smile back. But panic
quickly returned to my constricted throat as that name re-entered my head.

Suddenly aware of the warmth still creeping across my face, I managed
to pull my eyes from his again and divert my gaze. Addison, Addison, who
the hell was Addison? I couldn’t budge the name from my thoughts.

As I stood fidgeting, I could feel him staring, waiting for me to say
something, anything. After taking a breath, I shifted my gaze and we
locked eyes again as I spoke. “Um,” I said, swallowing hard, “I must be
mistaken ... sorry.”

Review: Transformed by E. V. Fairfall

Transformed 
by E.V. Fairfall
Publication date: January 1st 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

Synopsis: 
Thea, all-mighty Mother Earth, only had one rule to follow above all else, one promise to keep to her brother: never take a human form. She would’ve kept that promise if it weren’t for Brice. He’s handsome and confident, but above all he’s merciless.
He’s also a hunter who has tormented Thea for years. She believes if she could teach Brice compassion, she might finally be able to save her creations and herself from his savage ways. Then she meets Chamber: another hunter.
She soon finds herself fascinated by−and torn between−the two boys: Brice and Chamber. Lost within a torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is as she falls in love with the one thing that she’s always hated: a hunter… a human.


Purchase (on sale for 1.99$ during the tour!):

My Thoughts: Very unique and interesting idea for a paranormal plot, this is the first fantasy book I've read involving creation. Thea or "mother nature" takes on a human form in order to teach the importance of treating nature with respect. Overall a beautifully done book with a wonderful ending that leaves you just holding the book in appreciation. Each character is amazing in there own way and it's had not to love Thea. A heartwarming story that I didn't want to put down. 



AUTHOR BIO:
I love to write just as much as I love to read. I try to read a book per week, which doesn’t always work out, but it’s the thought that counts. Aside from all that I am a huge animal person.

Transformed is my first novel, but it isn’t my first publication; I’ve had several short stories published over the last two years. My main goal as a writer is to explore humanity and to give people something fun to read.

Available at Amazon    BN   ARe    iBooks    Kobo

Excerpt:
Five torches blazed on the stage all at once, lit by an unseen force. The audience erupted in cheers as the dancing lights from the flickering fire basked the statues. The flames lowered, casting the gargoyles in an eerie, almost reverent glow.
Movement. So slight, Kayla wondered if it was simply a play of light and shadows in her anticipation for the change. She fixed her gaze on the statue in front of her, the one she’d gravitated to each time she’d had snuck out to see the show. Its massive gray form stood straight on two legs built for sturdiness. Its chest jutted out proudly. Gray wings with detailed feathers etched in the stone arched from a point below its shoulder blades. Eyes cast straight ahead on a face that appeared to be a mixture of canine and lion. Its right hand twitched, so slightly she would have missed it if she hadn’t stared so intently. Then a clawed foot inched forward.
Murmurs of astonishment burst from the crowd as the transformation began. Their cries of fervor grew louder as the monstrous statues transformed into taller, slimmer figures with the bronzed skin of warriors who battled under the midday sun. The tartan fabric fell over their thighs as they stood erect, covering their nudity.
Kayla barely blinked, mesmerized as always, as the statue before her stood to full height, taking on the form of a human male, but with beautiful raven wings. Hair just as black snaked rebelliously past his chin. The stony eyes flickered with animation, turning to a mossy green. His deep gaze seared the audience, seeming to burn anything in the path. When he found Kayla, he stopped.
His expression was unreadable, but the intensity in his unblinking eyes made her swallow. She froze under the scrutiny as if hypnotized, unable to break eye contact. Her stomach lurched, heart pounded, and every muscle in her body tightened, fueled with blood now scorching through her veins. His penetrating appraisal affected her so. When his eyes took on a smoldering glint, her skin tingled and a red-hot awareness grew between her thighs.
He broke the stare and continued to assess the audience. She gasped, not realizing she had been holding her breath, and panted while she tried to breathe at a normal rate. He turned on robust legs and strode to a guitar stand. She tore her eyes from him to note the other gargoyles. They, too, had shifted into the form of striking males. One had black hair draped further down his back, one had long blond hair, and two had reddish-brown hair—one wavy and shaggy, the other straight. They took their place at other  instruments. She sought the guitarist again and caught the first sound of the pick striking the strings. On hearing the guitar projected through the amp, the crowd roared again, pressing Kayla forward.
The freak show was about to begin.
Spotlights flooded the musicians, powered by solar panels near a massive amplifier. The guitarist continued playing and the others joined in, playing a raucous crossover between hard rock and heavy metal. The one with long blond hair grabbed hold of the microphone and belted out a shattering cry that sounded like a call to battle. The crowd went pin drop silent to listen and then cheered in unison as the band played on. The front man sang piercing growls and low croons about the Knights in Stone, the protectors of the ancient forests, battling against the evil tree witches.
Kayla’s coven.

My Thoughts: Loved the story line! Such a great fantasy book with witches, werewolves and gargoyles! Add the steamy romance scenes and I could not set this book down for a second! Each of the main characters have such unique and strong personalities, you can't help but love the chemistry brewing. The author does a great job keeping you entertained throughout the whole book with a forbidden romance and danger brewing on the magical isle between the paranormal community. Great book I cannot wait to read more!!

Genre: New Adult Fantasy
Purchase your copy for free today:
Amazon

Synopsis: Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.


My Thoughts: Loved the ending!! Very addicting read, I couldn't put the book down and can't wait to start the next book, Stone of Destiny! The plot was very unique, with a historical background involving the Tuatha de Danaan of Irish-Celtic mythology. I loved the main character, Allison, she is a major introvert who loves to read in her spare time but will also fight for her family no questions asked.,  The Danaan characters each had very unique personalities and characteristics that make you want to know more about them. The only things that tripped me up a bit in the middle of the plot, were all the  Danaan "Faerie" names, occasionally I didn't know who I was reading about. I cannot wait to see what happens with her and Ethan!!

Amazon / Barnes & Noble

I am so excited to start this series, first of all I love fantasy books based in New Orleans and second I LOVE Jennifer L. Armentrout!!!

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

The Norns think they’ve won,
but it’s hard to control a teenager,
let alone a powerful one…


Raine Cooper’s life should be perfect. She’s an Immortal Seeress, most likely to be elected Prom Queen, and envied by the girls at Kayville High for dating the dreamy quarterback, Torin St. James. Instead, she’s haunted by the smug facial expressions the Norns’ wore during their last meeting.

As a Norn-In-Training, Raine crossed the line long ago when she sided with the Valkyries and Mortal Witches. When the Norns return with demands of their own, Raine feels trapped. She must repair the battle grounds and wipe out the memories of every Mortal witness. Torin tries to convince her that the Norns are manipulating her, but she refuses to listen. At least until the Norns’ demands focus on someone she loves. When Raine refuses to cooperate with them, their punishment is swift and gut-wrenching, turning her pain into fury.

Raine plots revenge on a massive scale and makes deals with unsavory allies. Her goal? Total destruction of the entire Norn race. Raine’s only hope of salvation is Torin, but how much will he sacrifice to save her?

Hired Gun (The Sicarii Serial #2)

Publication Date: October 8th, 2014
Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance
Purchase your copy:
Amazon

Synopsis:
***Adult Paranormal Romance this is not intended for Young Adult readers.*** 

Assassin Thorne Hollow wants to know two things. Who is the mysterious Kataya Clarke and what the hell kind of mind games is she playing with him? 

His curiosity causes him to do something he hasn’t done in over two thousand years. He returns to his home realm only to find out that his father, Theseus had a hand in getting him his job with The Sicarii, the secret society of hit men, leaving Thorne even more confused. 

Pissed off, Throne takes his rage out on a nest of vampires. He ends his night with yet another beautiful woman who is not who she appears to be.

My Thoughts: AJ Bennett knows how to leave you wanting more with that heart pumping ending. The plot is slowly progressing since the books are each less than 100 pages long, but I am enjoying where things are headed. I really do love the idea that Norse gods and Greek gods both exist and work together; the plot really gets interesting when Athena comes to visit Thorne to inform him that a monumental change is about to hit earth. Warning this series is definitely a romance with some very descriptive parts.   Right when the story gets hot and heavy  the book ends with a surprise twist leaving you wishing for more! If you like a good romance with a paranormal twist this is the book series for you! I personally cannot wait to read the next one!

Review: Sink (Cold Mark #2) by Scarlett Dawn

Sink (Cold Mark #2) 
by Scarlett Dawn
Publication Date: November 1st, 2014
Genre: New Adult Sci-Fi Romance
Purchase your copy:
Amazon

Synopsis: The second installment to the bestselling Cold Mark serial launches with Sink, where fear and willpower battle from within…

Braita Valorn’s pampered existence with the Plumas of the west was cut short by her own hand. Being their Soul only complicates matters as she hides inside their enemy’s territory. Danger lurks, and Braita’s lack of knowledge of the planet, Triaz, is now abundantly clear.

Braita’s only strength against the deadly Mian is the blessed sun that lights the day hours.

On a mission to find her best friend, Jax, she must infiltrate the Crank Pit, a brutal complex where Mian enter, only to leave absent a heartbeat. Nothing transpires as planned. Braita’s reckless behavior lands her right into her adversaries’ custody—the Plumas of the east. Will Braita find the answers she’s been searching for…or will she sink further into a sensual world she never thought possible?


My Thoughts: The story begins about a week after Braita escapes from Leo and Malik, after the shocking ending of Fall, in search of her friend Jax. She remains hidden in the underground tunnels waiting for the perfect time to reach out to him; but what she sees when she finds Jax leaves her speechless. I am completely captivated by this series and wish there was more in each book. Each time I just want to yell at the book for ending too soon, right when I am getting back into the story line it ends! Even though it may end sooner than I would like I still cannot set this series down, I was able to read both books in a single sitting. There is a new surprising twist at the end of each book in this series leaving you impatiently waiting for more. With this unique plot and group of characters you cannot help but be completely absorbed in every little detail Scarlett Dawn gives you.  Stop, the third installment of this series is planned to release February 1st. I would recommend this series, and really all of Scarlett Dawn's pieces, to anyone who enjoys a great story that you can't set down once you start!!
