{Review} Grave Attraction by @Lori_Sjoberg @lyricalpress

{Review} Grave Attraction by @Lori_Sjoberg @lyricalpress

Grave Attraction is the fourth book in the Grave series by Lori Sjoberg. The Grave series is an adult paranormal romance series, and this is the first book that I have had the pleasure of reading. I find the idea of reapers fascinating, and if you have read many of my other paranormal and urban fantasy reviews, you know that I love it when lots of magical creatures come out to play together in one world. And that is exactly what is going on in Grave Attraction. Witches, and shifters and reapers…oh my! (sorry, I couldn’t help it.) In Grave Attraction we meet Adam, a new reaper and Marlena, a shifter. Adam rescues Marlena from a serial killer that is more than he appears to be. The rest of the story spirals from there as the group of reapers team up with some witches to solve two sub mysteries. I loved the mix of paranormal creatures and I love the side story line that Marlena introduced for how she is… Read more »

{ARC Review} His Work of Art by Shannyn Schroeder #klovers @KensingtonBooks @SSchroeder_

{ARC Review} His Work of Art by Shannyn Schroeder #klovers @KensingtonBooks @SSchroeder_

If you guys remember from my 3 reviews of the original Hot & Nerdy trilogy by Shannyn Schroeder, you know that I really enjoyed the was a series formula. First, I love that the books are told in dual narrative between each of the main guys and girls and I think you all know by now that is my favorite story telling narrative method. and Second, the trilogy follows a group of three friends. The books are each of their stories, BUT the cool part is that each of the books take place in roughly the same time period. So there will be a bit of overlap in each of the stories, but from a different characters perspective. What a cool concept right? I loved reading them all and seeing how they each fit together. The first three books in the Hot & Nerdy trilogy followed a group of girls. Well, Shannyn has decided to do another three books with the same series concept, but this time following a whole… Read more »

{Review} Goddess by Julie Anne Lindsey @juliealindsey @lyricalpress

{Review} Goddess by Julie Anne Lindsey @juliealindsey @lyricalpress

Goddess is the second book in the new adult mythology Calypso series. Prophecy was one of my favorite books of 2014. I loved it so hard that I was pretty much besides myself when I saw Goddess come out on netgalley. This is a series that needs to be read in order, so run, don’t walk and pick up the first book if you have not already done so. In order to fully appreciate this book, you need to read Prophecy first. I have seen a few reviews from people that said the book didn’t capture their attention, but then they also said that they didn’t read the first book. I think that is the rub right there. Book one gives you so much background on the characters that by the time book two rolls around you are already in love. (or at least I was.) And because of this love, I was able to put their stubbornness and block-head moments in perspective a bit better. If you remember from… Read more »

{ARC Review} Hot @nd Nerdy by Shannyn Schroeder #klovers @KensingtonBooks @SSchroeder_

{ARC Review} Hot @nd Nerdy by Shannyn Schroeder #klovers @KensingtonBooks @SSchroeder_

Hot @nd Nerdy is the compilation of the three books in the Hot @nd Nerdy trilogy by Shannyn Schroeder. I picked up this book to read the last story, Her Winning Formula and to have all three of the books in one place. I knew after I read the first book, Her Best Shot, that this was a series formula that I was going to love. First, I love that the books are told in dual narrative between each of the main guys and girls and I think you all know by now that is my favorite story telling narrative method. and Second, the trilogy follows a group of three friends. The books are each of their stories, BUT the cool part is that each of the books take place in roughly the same time period. For example, Her Best Shot is the story of Layla and Phin. Layla was on her way to spend spring break with her friend Felicity when her car broke down and she met Phin…. Read more »

{Review} Between Now and Never by Laura Johnston @lauralojohnston @lyricalpress

{Review} Between Now and Never by Laura Johnston @lauralojohnston @lyricalpress

Between Now and Never is a standalone contemporary/realistic fiction romance story. I loved Laura Johnston’s first novel, Rewind to You and I really loved it. It was a super sweet and light romance. I am going to tell you up front that Between Now and Never has a very different feel to it than Rewind to You did. It is not as sugary sweet, certainly not as light. I didn’t love it as much as Rewind to You, but it was still a good story. (What can I say, I am just more of a happy and fluffy kind of gal.) Between Now and Never had kind of a forbidden romance, Montague and Capulet feuding family feel to it. Julianna and Cody come from very different families and you can tell that it has impacted the way they grow up. Julianna’s family is poor and her brother uses/deals drugs and because of that has money problems. To try and help, their mom committed a crime at her job and got… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Prophecy by Julie Anne Lindsey @juliealindsey @lyricalpress

{Review+Giveaway} Prophecy by Julie Anne Lindsey @juliealindsey @lyricalpress

Oh how I needed to read Prophecy. I haven’t given a book 5 star in so long. I have read some meh books and a lot of good books. But there is a difference between a good book, or even a great book and a book that just warms you up from the inside out. One that you want to hug and start reading from the beginning again. That was Prophecy for me. I LOVED this book! I was excited when I read the summary and saw that it had something to do with Mythology, because that is a big hit with me. And then I read the authors foreword and she mentioned all the myths coming out and playing and mixing together and my excitement shot up a couple of levels. It was so cool to see the greek and roman gods mixing in with the norse gods. The end result was pure magic. We knew Callie was something special right from the start, but Julie Anne Lindsey does… Read more »
