{Review+Giveaway} Julia Defiant @ByCatherineEgan @KnopfBFYR ‏

  I have been totally loving reading books in a series back to back. This is the summer of the binge read for me. So I decided to do that with books one and two in the Witch’s Child series. So this is a combined review for books one and two in the Witch’s Child series by Catherine Egan. The first two books in the Witch’s Child Series by Catherine Egan are Julia Vanishes and Julia Defiant. The books got a beautiful new cover change for the release of the second book. While I really liked the original covers, I love the new covers. I am a big fan of the cover change and now I want to get both books with matching new covers. #BookBloggerProblems lol The Witch’s Child series is a really interesting one for me, because it is one of the few series that I ended up liking the second book way, way more than I liked the first book. I found the first book, Julia Vanishes… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Year of Four by @TheNyaJade

{Review+Giveaway} The Year of Four by @TheNyaJade

The Year of Four is the first book in the Phoebe Pope series by Nya Jade. The Phoebe Pope series is a young adult paranormal romance featuring a magical boarding school for shifters. You all know I am a sucker for a magical school setting, and this one was particularly cool for two reasons. One, it sits below a normal boarding school, and the students attend classes both “above” and “below”. I loved the mixing of the students from the two schools, and I really loved the idea that the regular school “hid” the shifter school. And the second reason I loved this setting was that this was no ordinary school for shifters…no this was a secret spy school. Where they are training animal shifters of all kinds to be spies! How awesome is that? I have never seen this spin the boarding school idea and I couldn’t wait to dive into the series. I also really, really love the cover changes the series got. I think the new covers… Read more »

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Gallowglass by Jennifer Allis Provost

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Gallowglass by Jennifer Allis Provost

Gallowglass is the first book in the adult paranormal romance series of the same name by author Jennifer Allis Provost. I enjoyed Gallowglass and I am excited to continue on with the series. I found this one to be a bit slow in parts, but the characters and the story line, along with the promise of where the series can go was enough to keep me interested in the story the whole time. This book felt more like a foundational book for the series. I think with the foundation to the story laid out, the rest of the books will be even better for me. There were so many elements that I really enjoyed in Gallowglass so I am going to quickly list the things I loved, and then I would encourage you to check out the excerpt above if you think this is the type of book that would interest you. I loved the setting. I have always wanted to visit Scotland, and I adore books that take place there. I… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} When Danger Bites by Heather Long

{Review+Giveaway} When Danger Bites by Heather Long

When Danger Bites by Heather Long is the first book in the Bravo Team WOLF series. I enjoyed this book. It has been awhile since I have read an adult paranormal romance, and I forgot how much I enjoy them. When Danger Bites was a good start to the series, but it kind of felt like there was a lot of build up, and a lot of working up to the romance in this one. Overall, I liked the story, but I felt like the romance moved a little bit too slow for my liking. When Danger Bites is the story of Kat and Jax. I really, really loved Kat and Jax. I was rooting for them pretty much from the beginning, which is why I think I wanted them to get together a little faster. Because it was so clear to me they are dynamite together. Kat is sent in to join a special ops team and to figure out what is going on with them, and Jax is… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Harmful Rush by @DebraDoxer

{Review+Giveaway} Harmful Rush by @DebraDoxer

Harmful Rush is a young adult paranormal by author Debra Doxer. Harmful Rush is the third book in the Remedy series, but it can be read as a complete standalone. It follows a different group of characters and is in a college setting. I loved the first two books in the Remedy series, which followed a different couple, so I knew I had to continue on in this world where some people can heal with just a touch! Even though Harmful Rush can be read as a total standalone, I would really recommend starting with Keep you From Harm because I think it does a great job of setting up the ability and introducing you to some important characters. (we got to see them again near the end of Harmful Rush by the way and I was super excited! I love Raielle and Lucas!) In Harmful Rush we meet Sky, who has the same ability as Raielle. She can heal someone with just a touch. The ability is much more… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Firestorm by @Donna_Grant

{Review+Giveaway} Firestorm by @Donna_Grant

Firestorm is an adult paranormal romance by Donna Grant. It is the tenth book in the dark kings series. I have not read any of the previous books in the series, but they can each be read as standalones. I do have to say, I feel like this series would be better read in order. Yes, this book can work as a standalone, but I feel like I would have a much better idea of the world if I had read the previous books. That being said, I did really enjoy Firestorm. I found it to be sexy and a great read. Firestorm starts out with our main character, an archeologist, discovering a dragon skeleton. Right away I was hooked into the story. I loved Faith and I really, really loved Dimitri. I admired how determined Faith was, and I really enjoyed the back and forth between her and Dimitri. Dimitri is super interesting himself. I loved seeing his inner struggle with the human v. dragon side and the way… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Remembrance by Heather Hildenbrand @HeatherHildenbr

{Review+Giveaway} Remembrance by Heather Hildenbrand @HeatherHildenbr

Remembrance is the first book in the new adult paranormal romance Heart Lines series by Heather Hildenbrand. The Heart Lines series is a spin-off of Heather’s Dirty Blood series and while it’s more fun to come in already knowing a bit about these characters, you do NOT have to read Dirty Blood first. You can just jump in here! I loved heather’s Dirty Blood series. It is hands down my very favorite werewolves series. I think it is the best one out there! So when I heard she was going to come out with a new spin off, I was excited. And then I heard that the series was going to be about my very favorite character from the Dirty Blood series…Alex! I heart the heck out of Alex. I actually shipped him really hard throughout the Dirty Blood series. Remembrance is Alex and Sam’s story, or the start to it, and I loved every single second of it. Seriously, I could not turn the pages fast enough. Even though… Read more »

{ARC Review} How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by @KerrelynSparks @StMartinsPress

{ARC Review} How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by @KerrelynSparks @StMartinsPress

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days is the first book in the adult paranormal romance series, called the Embraced, by Kerrelyn Sparks. This is the first time I have read a book by Kerrelyn Sparks, and I have to say I really, really enjoyed it! Actually it was a bit of a surprise for me, because How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days started out pretty rocky for me. I wasn’t feeling the characters and the premise seemed strange, but all of that changed once the main character, Luciana left the island and got to her father’s land. From there, I was totally swept up in the story. More and more with each flip of the page. I fell in love with Luciana and Leo, and I really loved their story. Ana and Leo are not allowed to touch each other. Leo is known as the beast because he can harness the power of lightning and kills with a single touch. I thought his ability was super… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Frost by Kaitlyn Davis @DavisKaitlyn

{Review+Giveaway} Frost by Kaitlyn Davis @DavisKaitlyn

Frost is the first book in the young adult paranormal series, Midnight Ice series by author Kaitlyn Davis. The Midnight Ice series is a spin off series from her very popular, Midnight Fire series. I never read Midnight fire, but it has gotten tons and tons of rave reviews over the past few years. The series can each be read separately, but the books in each of the series do need to be read in order. They are all set in the same world and they do have some character crossover. Frost is a story about Pandora, who is a titan turned vampire. But not a titan like you are probably thinking. What intrigued me most about Frost was how mysterious the whole set up of the story was. It has been ages since I have read a vampire story, but this one felt different right from the start. There are all sorts of protectors- people who protect humans from vampires. But they are not the tradiaonal hunters. There are… Read more »
