5 stars to Shadows (Lux 0.5) by Jennifer L Armentrout

The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.

Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.


Captivated. Lured. Loved.

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence…and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

What can I say about this book? It was FILLED with Aw-Moments. I loved every single page. It’s a very nice view of Dawson and Bethany and their love. They are what I picture as true love and it was strong, intense, romantic, and simply beautiful. I loved reading about them. It also gave you a good sense of why Daemon is the way he is in the other books. It all makes sense and clicks even better after reading this one. I loved it. Dawson is.. too wonderful for words. The things he would do for Bethany.. I just.. I smiled throughout the story! They were just.. the ideal image of what two people in love look like. He would die for her and as would she.

This review is probably just gawking over Dawson and Bethany, but that’s what it’s about. This short story shows you how they meet, what happened, and it’s their love story. If you love Daemon the way I do, you will love Dawson just as much; maybe even more! But that’s hard.. Dawson is the nice one, Daemon is the bad-ass!

Overall, I would say this is definitely worth reading if your a fan of the series. It stops about a year before the series picks up, which is nice as well. It all blends well, it gives you great insist of basically everything and it’s just a quick and sweet love story!

5 Stars to Keir by Pippa Jay

Posted 27 December, 2012 by katheryn13 in Paranormal, Paranormal Romance, Reviews, Romance, Sci-Fi / 0 Comments

Outcast. Cursed. Dying. Is Keir beyond redemption? For Keirlan de Corizi–the legendary ‘Blue Demon’ of Adalucien–death seems the only escape from a world where his discolored skin marks him as an oddity and condemns him to life as a pariah. But salvation comes in an unexpected guise: Tarquin Secker, a young woman who can travel the stars with a wave of her hand. But Quin has secrets of her own. She’s spent eternity searching through space and time with a strange band of companions at her back. Defying her friends’ counsel, Quin risks her apparent immortality to save Keir. She offers him sanctuary and a new life on her home world, Lyagnius. When Keir mistakenly unleashes his dormant alien powers and earns instant exile from Quin’s home world, will she risk everything to stand by him again?

————————-

Another guest review post. This time, by my good friend Karen. -Kat

Loved this book! Keir was a fantastic read. The hero (Keir) and the heroine (Quin) had so much rich character development. Both of them were riddled with emotional–and physical–scarring; however, it was beautifully woven into the storyline to make them stronger people. Together they were able to overcome their insecurities.

Keir is packed with action, adventure, intrigue and spicy love scenes…but one of my favorite things was the role reversal. Keir was the inexperienced one, and I loved that Quin taught him–not just how to make love, because that was hot–but how to experience life and to open himself up to forgiveness. Keir suffered a great many things, but Quin was there to support, encourage and bring him back to life.

A few of my favorite lines from the book:

“I am not friendly. I am dangerous.”

He felt her presence in his mind still, like cool hands soothing his fevered thoughts. It both disturbed and comforted him. Was she an angel in human guise? Or some demon sent to torment him before delivering him to his final hell?

His words filled her with a sadness so sharp she had to fight down tears.

He screamed for help as they took him through shadowy streets to an unknown place, but no one came.

Why am I such a sucker for tortured souls?

“We weren’t meant to have these powers, Keir, but it’s how we use them that defines who and what we are.”

“Friends may easily become enemies. Prosperity attracts envy. We must always be wary of complacency and misplaced trust.”

Would learning the truth justify the risk?

For the first time in remembrance, he wanted to touch and be touched in return. To hold her and have her return his embrace freely, with more than a friend’s affection. To feel her white skin under his fingertips. To brush the hair from her face as the breeze did now, and run his fingers through it.

He leaned close to her, and the darkness of his eyes seemed to swallow her soul. “Your fears will come to pass.”

I have more, but pretty soon I’ll be quoting the entire book! So go buy it! 🙂 Keir is a must read!
