5 stars to Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Posted 14 January, 2013 by katheryn13 in Paranormal, Paranormal Romance, Reviews, Romance, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments


Since we haven’t posted a review of this yet since having the blog, here’s one for you:

————————

There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.

At least, that’s what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end, there was a grave.

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.


Wow! What can I say here. I’m SO glad I finally read this book! I can’t wait to get into the rest of the series!

It was amazing!! 🙂 I loved every second of this book, and it only took me about 3 days to read; it’s a long book. But it was worth it.

First, let me say that I truly enjoyed the fact that this book was from the point of view of a boy. I love seeing what the boys see. It’s different; most books are nearly always from the girl’s side. I enjoyed watching the BOY fall for the GIRL instead of the other way around. It was nice and refreshing.

Ethan. I love you? He was so sweet, loving, he was loyal, trusting, and he would do ANYTHING for Lena. It was beautiful. His love for her was so strong. He was her rock and I loved that about him. He didn’t care what others thought or said and did and he wanted to be with Lena and that’s what he did. Nothing would have stopped him from doing so.

Lena!!! GIRL, CAN YOU BE MY BEST FRIEND?! AH! Lena was awesome. She was just a Caster that wanted to be normal. If I was her, and all those things happened to me, I may have just cried and given up. She was DETERMINED and I loved that about her. She had a passion and she was not going to let silly little teenage girls ruin that for her. Plus, she could do some pretty awesome stuff. Breaking windows? Thunder storms? AH! She was amazing.

This book… it kinda had it all in my mind to be a paranormal story. It had AWESOME powers. The things that could happen with these Casters, and all the different types, I love it! There were so many unique things… it was beautiful. There were strong family ties, family history, and true love. It was just… I don’t even have words to describe it. I loved it. I loved everything about this story.

And the end… The end killed me! When it got closer to her birthday, I just was hooked and I couldn’t put the book down. Everything just… WOW! No spoilers, so I can’t say what the wow part was, but it was wow worthy!! True love, it definitely conquers all… And that ending! I feel I need to order the next book like, NOW! I was left like, NO you can’t just END there! There is no way. I’m dying. A piece of my heart was left in this book.

It was amazing. I loved it. Please read this if you have no already. Just… just an amazing start to a series and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book 🙂

5 Stars to Dark Seraphine by KaSonndra Leigh

Posted 6 January, 2013 by katheryn13 in Reviews, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments

“Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they’re not all fluffy and nice.”

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn’t take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two ancient groups. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating, Gia, have of making it out alive

 

Well well… wasn’t I just sucked into this book pretty much instantly! 🙂
First off, I really enjoyed reading from a guy’s point of view. Caleb was one interesting character! Cocky, funny, and a smart ass. I loved it! A guys POV just views things slightly differently.

What I wasn’t expecting from this story was such twists and turns. Caleb can see ghosts, angels, and things of that nature which is rather interesting for a quiet guy. But one “Walker”, as he calls him, sticks around. It gets interesting with all the “dark agents” walking around that he can see and this random girl walker that continues to stick around.

You can clearly see the connection between the two and it’s quite a deep connection, without really understanding where it came from. It’s kind of like… an instant love connection, which is always fun to read about.

As you go through the story, lots of strange things happen. You learn about Caleb’s life, his past, and you can see “changes” within him. I don’t want to give anything away, but I will tell you they are really interesting.

The biggest twist is at the end when everything literally comes together. I was not expecting what this walker chick really is, what his “I’m not really into her” girlfriend is, his father, his dream he has often of his past… It was like, WHAT?! I was so not expecting that.

It was nice and so different from what I’m used to and what I had thought it would turn out to be. I liked it a lot and I’m really excited that the next book is coming out soon!! 🙂

I highly recommend this book. It’s not what you expect, but still it’s a really good surprise. Caleb is a really interesting young man and I was hooked from the first few chapters. Only took two days to finish this one.

I must thank KaSonndra for sending me this book. I can’t thank you enough!! I loved every second of this read.

Sorry if this review sounds choppy, I was on a roller coaster ride with this book. Definitely a page turner!

Great read 🙂

5 stars to Opal (Lux #3) by Jennifer L Armentrout

Posted 5 January, 2013 by katheryn13 in Paranormal, Paranormal Romance, Reviews, Sci-Fi, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger… and they know it

 

I wanna cry. I wanna cry. I wanna cry.

I’m writing this literally minutes after finishing the book and I wanna cry. That ending. No words can describe how I am feeling without giving anything away. I wanna cry. It’s devastating! Just.. down right DEVASTATING! And now, I have to wait… WAIT for the next book to come out. I think a little piece of me died when I finished this book. I literally cannot describe it without wanting to cry about it…

Overall, it’s an amazing story! Beautiful things happen in this and  so many sad things…

It’s very well written and I was engrossed throughout; I couldn’t get enough. It took will power to put the book down and stop reading. Once I was about… 60% in, there was not enough will power and I just kept going and couldn’t stop. It was amazing.

I still wanna cry. I don’t know how else to review this book. It’s great. You will want to cry at the end, so be prepared! It may kill a part of you. It did for me. Now I have to recover somehow.

Beautiful. Devastating. Heartwarming. Heartbreaking.

I’m in love with this series and it’s going to kill me to wait for the next book… and I do mean it may possibly kill me.

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

Posted 4 January, 2013 by katheryn13 in Reviews, Romance, Sci-Fi, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments

 

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!

5/5 STARS FOR THE EVOLUTION OF MARA DYER BY MICHELLE HODKIN

Posted 1 November, 2012 by katheryn13 in Reviews, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments

Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.

She can’t.

She used to think her problems were all in her head.

They aren’t.

She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.

She’s wrong.

In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?

 

I… I don’t know what to say, guys. I really don’t. I just finished The Evolution and I feel lost. And speechless.

I will try to review it properly, though. You know, without to much sobbing and screaming and ASDFGHJKL.

The Evolution Of Mara Dyer put me on edge since the first paragraph. Mara is yet again waking up in a hospital with no recollection of how she got there. However the situation is very different than the last time. She seems a whole lot crazier this time. Which says a lot since almost everyone pretty much thinks she’s crazy. Except she’s not. She just can do stuff and specifically kill by thinking of it. And that’s how the whole story begins.

Mystery’s in its prosperity again in this book. To be honest, the whole series is full of mystery. It’s what makes it so damned good. Well that and Noah. And Mara. And the hot romance. And Michelle’s amazing writing. Okay, okay I’ll stop rambling.

The characters are different in this book. Well actually they’re the same but we get to know them better. Both Mara and Noah are complicated. Both broken but still standing because of each other. We get to see another part of Noah in this book. More of his dark side. Even little of his POV and what it means to be Noah Shaw. Which is not as easy as it seems. I can sometimes be torturous.

I just love Mara and Noah’s relationship! It’s SO hot (and I mean H-O-T, all right) but simultaneously so sweet, honest and real. They’d anything for each other. I felt like the romance was more solid in this book, which I loved. Some scenes between Noah and Mara were just marvelous! I loved every single one of them!

And I will conclude with the ending. Obviously, it was a cliffhanger. To be completely honest, I’d call a hell of a cliffhanger. I still feel shocked over it. I loved the whole book but the last 50 pages or so made my heart beat so fast that I thought I’d faint before I even finish the book. You can’t imagine how much I mean it when I’m saying I’d do ANYTHING to have a copy of The Retribution Of Mara Dyer in my hands right now so I could start it. But life is too cruel and I have to wait until 2013.

To sum up, I’d recommend this series to anyone. Anyone who wants to read something GOOD. Mara Dyer is a must read!

5 stars for Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Posted 1 November, 2012 by katheryn13 in Paranormal Romance, Reviews, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments

Is death the end . . . or only the beginning?

Ethan Wate always dreamed of leaving the stifling Southern town of Gatlin.

But he never dreamt that finding love with Lena Duchannes would drive him away. Lena is a Caster girl whose supernatural powers unveiled a secretive and cursed side of Gatlin, so powerful it forced him to make a terrible sacrifice.

Now Ethan must find a way to return to Lena – and Gatlin – as she vows to do whatever it takes to get him back. Even if it means trusting old enemies or risking their loved ones’ lives.

Can Ethan and Lena rewrite their fate and their spellbinding love story in this stunning finale to the Beautiful Creatures series?

 

I’m not even sure I can find the right words for this. Hell, I can’t even type properly. There are so many FEEEEEEEEELINGS! You have NO idea. I was umming and awwwing and OHHHING and NOOOOING all the way through this book and nearly cried a few times near the end. The happy, bittersweet, SAD BUT HAPPY again feeling that is how I feel for the ending is….way too intense.
Like I said, I’m stuck for words.

So Ethan is…stuck, in the Otherworld and he has to find a way home…with the trust and help of Lena and Amma and anyone else that has the patience and power. So much happens… Oh God…where do I start? And without SPOILING!

Ethan learns a lot while…well…dead, and on his quest (which actually turns out a lot like something out of a TriWizard Tournament from Harry Potter) he meets a lot of weird and wonderful people. And some he thought gone for good. OH MY GOD…..

There are so many twists and turns in this story. The minute you think something is going to happen, it turns out…it isn’t, or it’s a whole lot worse. I read this book in about 2 days, and that’s saying something because the last 3 took me about…well, a lot longer.
Here are my tributes (no THG pun intended) and what I want to say about them:

Macon: iHeart you. You’re fierce, loyal, FUNNY, you have the best lines and I want you as my uncle. No lie.
Abraham: Well, what can I say? I hate the bastard. He got what was coming to him. (no spoils)
Xavier: Oh how I loved you. Thanks for helping my boy! (iHearts Ethan, btw)
Amma: I’ll always love you. You’re ability to not take crap from no one is exceptional. And how loyal and loving you are to everyone. *sobs*
Lena: Oh man, she really kicked….well, something. I loved how they had a three parts to this book. You got a new look at how Lena thinks and feels, rather than just from Ethan’s pov and how he sees her.
Link:  I love that dude!
Liv: love you, my British amigo!
John and Ridley, you guys are fab. I know Rid is on the dark side of the force, but damn she’s awesome. John turned out to be pretty amazing too.
Angelus, or whatever his ugly ass name is:  I HATE YOU. The End.

And let’s not forget:
Sarafine: oh yes, I said Sarafine. But that’s another story that I will not spoil. I still hate that bitch, but….well, you’ll see.

Sorry this is a weird review, but strangely all my feelings are so jumbled, I can’t find the right way to write this. I’m sure I’ll find it soon.

Most of all, I’m so freaking sad this is the last book. I didn’t want it to end. In all, in my humblest opinion, Beautiful Chaos and Beautiful Redemption have been THE BEST BOOKS OF THE SERIES! ( with the exception of Beautiful Creatures that was the start of it all, of course.)
I have to praise Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl for coming up with this story and making it such an emotion, funny, bittersweet journey. I’m so pleased I decided to give it a try and I’m so glad It ended on a high note. I wouldn’t have had it end any other way.

Oh, now my words make sense. Anyway, that’s it from me.

5/5 Stars for FINALE by Becca Fitzpatrick

Posted 27 October, 2012 by katheryn13 in Reviews, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments

Nora is more certain than ever that she is in love with Patch. Fallen angel or no, he is the one for her. Her heritage and destiny may mean they are fated to be enemies, but there is no turning her back on him. Now Nora and Patch must gather their strength to face one last, perilous trial. Old enemies return, new enemies are made, and a friend’s ultimate betrayal threatens the peace Patch and Nora so desperately want. The battle lines are drawn—but which sides are they on? And in the end, are there some obstacles even love can’t conquer?

This review was very difficult for me to write because I just finished Finale and I’m too emotional to express a professional opinion about the book. Meaning, I’m crying and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to stop. I CAN’T. *screams* *rolls on the floor, sobbing*

Okay, okay I’ll calm down. I can do it.

Finale is amazing! I couldn’t ask for a better conclusion to this perfect series that is called Hush Hush. More action, romance and heartbreak than ever before, Finale will make readers stay up all night, reading it. And then curl up in a corner, hug the books and just plainly cry.

It’s a little difficult to review this book without spoiling it but I’m willing to try. Finale started quickly with action that made my blood boil, in a good way. I was on edge the whole time waiting to see what happens. There is a lot of mystery as there was in the previous books but rules are changed now. Both Nephilim and fallen angels want to win this war and they’re willing to play dirty. Really dirty.

The romance; well, like in the 3 other books, the romance between Nora and Patch is plainly hot but there are so many times that I wanted to cry in this one because it was just so sweet and romantic. Patch and Nora’s words to each other, especially toward the end of the book – I really did cry. They were that romantic. In addition, I love that their relationship is down to earth. I mean, they have their ups and downs. They fight and lie to each other. Which is more of a proof how real their love is. They forgive each other because they cannot live without the other by their side. They’re not the perfect couple, never arguing or having a disagreement. They just love each other so much. Which is very rare in real life but it still exists.

Once again, Becca’s writing left me wanting more. It’s addictive and beautiful. The way she uses words makes you keep reading. It’s plainly wonderful.

The characters. Well, I’ve always loved all of them, especially Patch. He’s sexy and gorgeous, protective and sweet, badass and possessive. I just love the way he feels about Nora. He’d go to hell and back for her. He’d do anything for her. That’s also what Nora feels about him. Which is why I love their relationship so much. Nora in Finale is not exactly different than she used to be. She’s just a lot stronger. She’s been through so much, after all. Plus, she’s more badass and she kick some serious ass in this book. Which I enjoyed so much! The secondary characters, Vee and Scott are once again amazing. I love those two so much. They’re funny and strong and loyal and cute.

I don’t want to spoil anything but I cried so much when this particular thing happened. I DID NOT want it to happen. But Becca just wanted to rip my heart out a little more.

Hush Hush is the second YA series I’ve ever read and it helped in convincing me to read more of those. I’m so very grateful for that. I’m also so sad that Hush Hush has finished but I know that I’ll never forget this amazing series. Patch and Nora’s story will never be forgotten.

Thank you Becca Fitzpatrick for writing this amazing saga!

5 stars for Onyx (Lux Novel #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted 24 October, 2012 by katheryn13 in Reviews, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments

Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

5/5 Stars

I’ve never been that good with words. Not for reviews anyway. (Stories are another matter entirely.) So it might not come as a shock to you that this book has left me speechless. In a good way.

Katy finds out she’s not quite as normal as she first thought. Doors are slamming, lockers are opening of their own accord, and glasses are breaking. Not to mention windows are shattering. Cool, huh?
But this isn’t supposed to happen. Well, I suppose it depends on your view. Ever since Daemon healed Katy on Halloween night, things have been a little…crazy.
Daemon and Katy are still fighting, but this time the heat is up. Turned all the way up. The oven is on, baby, and this time it’s going sonic style! *giggles*

Still, my favourite scene of them all has to be back in Obsidian when Daemon is trying to get rid of the trace on Katy and they argue and end up kissing, blowing up her laptop in the process.

There are plenty of hot moments like that (ehem…library anyone?) but I don’t think…anything quite as intense. Maybe it was just me that felt that, but that doesn’t detract from the sexy sexy scenes there were.
I laughed so hard in some scenes as well. Especially a certain scene where Katy & Daemon are caught in a rather…compromising position. I won’t spoil. But let’s just say… AWKWAAARD!

Simon is back, for a while, and even weirder and drunker than normal.
I was mildly surprised by the lack of Arum this time around, but then again, it wasn’t the Arum they really had to worry about. The DOD are in town and they’re very interested in Katy. What she finds out about THEM, though, is even more disturbing.
Also, a certain person who shall remain nameless but was supposedly dead, is seen by Katy and she doesn’t know what this means. Everything she and Daemon have known is tipped upside down and they go on a wild hunt trying to put all the pieces together. I really was thrilling to read. So much action, but not in the overly descriptive way. It drew me in quicker and didn’t leave me wanting to fast forward pages just to get to the point.

Onyx was just as good, if not better, as its predecessor. Obsidian had me blown away, and Onyx had me… blown away and strapped to the bottom of a war plane in the middle of the Middle East. It made me feel excited, scared, happy, sad… I didn’t think I could have so many feelings for one book (and I’ve read a lot of books.). There are only a small few of the books I’ve read that have made me feel so….hooked. I mean, I get hooked, but not…not like this. I felt like I was actually IN the story, living the lives along with Katy and Daemon. I didn’t cry…although I sure felt like it at times. But I did feel fear.

There were times when I was one step ahead of Katy, as I’m sure a lot of readers were.

When there were some intensely sexy scenes though, most of the time I was like O.O WHYYYYY? YOU CAME SO CLOSE? JUST DO IT ALREADY!

Yeah I know. I’m a perv.

I felt sorry for Dee this time around because since Katy was spending so much time training with Blake, and dealing with her new powers and the connection with Daemon, since she didn’t want Dee to know…. well, that made it hard for her. And for me. I wanted to shake Dee and tell her that Katy had a reason for all of this. She wasn’t just ditching her for some loser with surfer hair.

So over all, if I had to recommend one book series this year, it would HAVE to be the Lux series. No, not the Luxe series (because that’s a completely different story)…so please don’t get confused.
L.U.X.
LUX.
Lux.
Luuuuuuxxxxxx
Yeah there are lots of ways to say it.

Are you ready for the ride of your life?

5 stars for Obsidian (A Lux Novel #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted 24 October, 2012 by katheryn13 in Reviews, Supernatural, YA / 0 Comments


Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

5/5 Stars.

First off I’d like to say HOLY MOTHER OF GOD THAT WAS SEXY!

Secondly, I’d like to say, WHAT IS IT WITH SEXY BOYS IN BOOKS?

And thirdly…well…I just damn well loved this book!

I’ll admit, the concept of aliens was slightly…off-putting at first. I know lots of my followers on twitter have read this, and my friends were saying over and over that I had to read it. But aliens, really? I just couldn’t see it.

However, I was intrigued. I was hesitant about buying the book, but I did anyway and guess what? I fell in love. The aliens…they’re just not what you imagine. And asides from a couple of times when he talks about where he comes from…. well you mostly can forget it’s aliens.

This sexy sexy, down right hilarious (in parts, but even the sexy parts were kinda funny) book was just what I wanted. Albeit, some of the scenes were a little…shall I say, cheesy. And the sexy scenes sometimes a little….frustrating because you just wanted these two lovely characters, Daemon and Katy to get at it like rabbits but for some unfortunate reason Daemon continued to be an ass and piss off the person he really, actually likes. Who knows why he acts that way. Daemon is a complete mystery to us all, I should think.

He is, ultimately, a sex god. He has that swagger, that “I know I’m hot and there’s nothing you can do about it” vibe going on. And usually that would put me off, because there’s nothing sexier than a humble guy who is sexy but doesn’t know it. Well, now it turns out, you can have both.

Katy’s whole persona was, at first glance, JUST LIKE ME! I was shocked. Asides from the fact I’m not that attractive (in my own eyes) and I don’t have the luck of guys falling for me (maybe in my dreams), we were basically the same. As I’m sure a lot of other book nerdy girls around the globe are. We sit in front of our computers, shut out from the world, writing up blogs and stuff. Sadly, not all of us have the pleasure of having a REALLY HOT neighbour.

So their chemistry, Katy and Daemon… Can I say…SMOKING! They made me laugh so hard with their banter, and you knew there was an underlining emotion there that was dying to break free of its chains. A couple of times it did, but then…it got smacked back down to ChinaTown, as they say.

I loved Dee, i thought her bubbly personality was….albeit a little exhausting at times, but she really had a good heart to her. Lesa and…I forget the other girls name, well they added something..not quite sure what yet, but I’m sure it’ll occur to me in time.

I loved Katy’s mum…she was what you would call Embarrassing. With a capitol E. But cool with it, in a way.

Even though, in some other books that are somewhat sexy, there may not be much actual plot, unlike them, this was just…The dialogue was so good, it made you forget that there wasn’t actually that much going on. Not in a bad way, but I found myself so engrossed in the backwards and forwards arguments (albeit, funny) between Katy & Daemon, that nothing major really needed to happen. Some books make that mistake of having not much go on and you’re just reading paragraph after paragraph of what they did next but nothing EXCITING happens. This book…took you to the sky and back again. I swear to you…

The action was just as intense, too. It was written in a way that I didn’t get bored. Some fight scenes in books can leave you feeling like you’ve just swallowed a lot of words but not a lot going on, you know? This time, I was in the moment. I felt the pain and the (sometimes pleasure) and the drama.

So I don’t usually do really long reviews, and I’m doing my best not to spoil too much (Hopefully I’ve succeeded) and so I will leave you with these three wise words:

READ. THIS. BOOK!

There’s no other way to put it. I can’t believe I hadn’t read this sooner, but now I’m beyond excited to purchase Onyx on Amazon and read that and find out what other kinky/sassy/fun stuff the duo get up to.

A definite five stars for this bad boy!
