Fist off let me say that this book was kindly given to me for a honest and fair review. and I can just add that it’s now one of my favorite books!

OK OK calm down……*breathes*.

I could not put this one down. It was such a page turner wondering what was going to happen next. I found myself sitting in a grocery store parking lot so I could finish it! lol

 photo annoyed_zps9c7b97e4.gif

OK now that is out of my system. On with the review…

Story follows a freshman in college named Chloe. A beautiful blonde hair blue eyed bombshell with a tell-it-like-it-is personalty and a rack to boot. She was easy to fantasy cast in my mind.

 photo Chloe_zpsba97c700.jpg

Next you have her totally gorgeous blonde, buff, BFF Logan who is totally drool worthy. I wanted to gouge out Chloe’s eyes for the most part of the book for not seeing it sooner.

He was also easy for me to fantasy cast.

Finally FINALLY whew you have Drake Black. A totally womanizing bad boy who oozes sex appeal and is the lead singer in a band. (I know right?). He was extremely difficult to fantasy cast because he had so many different sides to him. There was the tattoos and piercing that screamed emo. The muscles that screamed male model hunk and the compassionate side that screamed sensitive, hopeless romantic. So I have two. The male model side and the lead singer of Red Hot Chili Peppers that is OMG hot hot.

Chloe instantly swoons over Drake when she see’s him. He on the other hand plays the total ladies man and refuses to commit and give up his slutty ways. Meanwhile Logan wants nothing more than her love and commitment. SO SHE IS TORN.

“That doesn’t change anything Drake. We’re both so screwed up on our own but together we’re a whirlwind. Nothing survives that gets in our path.”

Who will she choose? She loves both in different ways and can’t fathom life without either one of them in it.

The ending was amazing and it leaves you running and screaming for the next one.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU K.A. Robinson for such a wonderful series!!!!!!

He is handsome, mysterious…let’s face it…he is sex on a stick and she is smitten from the beginning. He plays hard to get which makes her want him even more.

They try to fight it but two souls that are meant to be seem to always find each other.

“That means that I love you,” he said softly. “If you want me to yell it to the next damn boat that goes by I will. I want you in my life. I want you in my bed, and I never intend to let you go.”

So what are you waiting for go now and add this to your must read list!

Ok WOW just WOW. 5 Fangtastic stars!

I can’t remember the last time a book made me cry….bravo Julie Kagawa bravo!

 photo clapping_zpsc76e4108.gif

Ok so I’m going to do my darnedest to make this a spoiler free review BUT sometimes I get a little carried away so consider yourself warned.

First off we start with Allison leaving Eden in search of Kanin who we know has been captured by that nasty vampire Sarrin. He is badly injured and calling out to her

 photo kanin_zps6a83ef35.gif

She stumbles upon her not so loving brother Jackal (don’t you think Klaus would be a perfect Jackal?)

“This is the most I have ever been in the sewers in one place. If someone had said to me a month ago. ‘Hey Jackal, guess where you’ll be spending most of your time in New Convington? Ankle-deep in shit!’ I would’ve ripped their lips off.”

 photo jackal_zps281d0017.gif

I have to admit that Jackal did warm up to me a few times…ok maybe once but hey better than none right?

BUT WHAT IS THIS???? Zeke is back! Love him and all of his hotness….mmmm mmmm mmmmm.

 photo yum.gif

 photo zeke_zps28a18bc1.jpg

Together the three of them nicely ask the Prince of New Covington to release Kanin. But of course he’s an ass and has crazy conditions that I can’t really give you privy too.

Skip forward some ass kicking moments and BAM the ending with floor you. If you like HEAs you might want to steer clear of this book until the next installment is released.

LOVE LOVE LOVED this book and CAN NOT WAIT for the next!!!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A love that starts out under a lie is bound to kill you, and sometimes you lived to tell the tale.

4 action packed suspenseful stars!

 photo temper_zps2f662512.gif

Ok wow first off I was leaving a blazing trail of fire to get to this book. I wanted it, I needed it like I need the blood running through my veins. Ellie, Javier and Camden has leached into my mind and I was desperate to find out what happens after Javier captured her.

I was a little disappointed that she started going back to her old Javier loving self again and I HOPED and prayed that it was the Stockholm Syndrome,that Gus suspected, because let’s face it he is a weasel that cares for no one in my opinion.

 photo mindcontrol_zps341c9c03.jpg

Camden wow my heart stayed with him this entire book. Going after her, leaving everything behind and getting his heart broken. I really wanted to slap Ellie a few times I admit.

She’s embedded herself in my skin, like a tattoo I could never give myself.

 photo lovetriangle_zps0c8392ee.jpg

But alas she falls for Javier’s charms….or does she?

 photo javiandellie_zps23709fda.jpg

“Whatever…. thing… you two shared it’s over. He may have his tatto on you, but so do I.”

The ending kinda irked me a bit I admit….I mean CAMDEN grow a pair and stop letting Javier have his way. But in the end they all join forces to put an end to Travis….or so that is HOW IT ENDS!!! I really do despise cliffhangers….sigh.

SOOOOOOOO I lie impatiently waiting waiting waiting for the final book.

DUDE. THIS. JUST. KEEPS. GETTING. BETTER!

 photo excited_zpsbd657329.gif

First off WOW. Team Camden! I actually had no idea now Karina was going to make me change hearts so fast but WOW…

 photo teamcamden_zps1da3cda5.jpg

 photo excited1_zpsc04123bf.gif

The kiss was gentle and brief, and as Camden pulled back and she opened her eyes, she saw nothing but sadness in his. Perhaps he could already tell that she was going to ruin him.</b

I’ll admit I really didn’t care for Ellie the first half of the book. I thought she had “changed” but it seems she was back to her own ways…but BOY she met her match with Camden. He didn’t put up with any of her shit AND it didn’t hurt that he was so yummy!

 photo camden3_zps6a435c1c.jpg

Javier is scorn. She took his money, his heart and his Jose!

“I can’t ever lose what I just felt.” He kissed my cheek. “I’m afraid if I did, I’d come looking for you, too. I’m afraid I can relate…to him.”

 photo jose_zpsec7c0251.jpg

Now that he has found her he will not stop and nothing and she will do everything in her power to keep her and Camden safe.

I am giddy as a schoolgirl to start reading this next! So PLEASE run RUN and start reading this trilogy NOW!!

“I love you.” he whispered. “From now until the end, under any name you choose.”

REVENGE

DESIRE

OBSESSION

PAIN

all packed into 262 pages. Fucking…Epic.

He lied. I lied. Any love that starts out under a lie is bound to kill you

 photo tumblr_mr6bf5Rek71rnp959o1_500_zps591acfa9.gif

And so it begins…I am glad that I decided to read this first before starting the trilogy. If the other three are anything like this one I am in for a roller coaster of a ride!

Immediately I feel in love with Eden. Driven by revenge she sought out the man that disfigured her a child only to be driven into the arms of his right hand man Javier.

 photo abby2_zps90c434fa.gif

I felt like I was offering my vagina up on a wooden platter. Talk about heading into the unknown.

As a member of the Mexican drug cartel he is vicious, intense and well intense is the best word for him. He is strikingly handsome but deadly and Eden knows she must tread softly around this one but her body and heart are making her do just the opposite.

 photo javier_zpsbe6b1f1a.jpg

“I could never forget your voice. You sound like an angel who’s gotten her wings dirty.”

Together they are a ticking time bomb full of lies and deceit waiting to explode, leaving just ashes and heartache behind.

 photo real_zps745524b7.gif

“You know.” he began, voice low and full, “if you were to ever leave me, I’d come looking for you on every street.”

*GASP* THAT. WAS. SO. GOOD! 5++++++++++++++ Suspenseful, Beautiful Stars!

“Anna…the night of the summit, when you were saved, it was the only time in my life I’ve thanked God for anything.”

Ok so I stayed up to the wee hours finishing this one. I admit the first half of the book I was dying to see more Anna and Kaiden BUT wow the last half was sooooooo worth it.

Anna travels the world with her friend Kope and with help from her dad to find allies to one day stand against the Dukes with hopes to get their lives and souls back.

Meanwhile she is still very ruined and heartbreakon over Kaiden’s absense and isolation towards her. Until her dad sends her to LA to ally with Kaiden and Blake and whew the sparks fly!

 photo fireworks_zpsb7dedaad.gif

Let’s just say that she has A LOT more control than I do.

We stood there, facing each other. Too much was between us, pulling us together, at the same time as it pushed us apart. Our need for each other would always be in constant battle with our need to keep the other safe.

The ending had me on pins and needles. I am soooooo stoked and sad I have to wait to read the final installment! THANK YOU WENDY!

UGH my heart goes out for these two…4.5 BEAUTIFUL AMAZING STARS

Only reason I didn’t give this a 5 is the ending ruined me. It left me hanging….bad.

About Anna White

Oh sweet Anna daughter of the Duke of Substance Abuse (ok I actually laughed when I read that.) Love her. She is really an angel, sweet and naive at times. She has no idea of her nephilium background until she meets her Kaiden the son of the Duke of Lust I might add. She has only one true friend Jay that I could have swore was gay at first.

About Kaiden Rowe

“He was smoking hot. As in H-O-T-T, hott. I’d never understood until that moment why girls insisted on adding an extra t. This guy was extra-t-worthy.” – Anna Whitt

I couldn’t have said it better.

He is the son of Lust…literally so there is no wonder every woman on the planet wants to bonk him. He is also a drummer for the band Lascivious which only adds hot points. He is confident and mysterious…he is the love of Anna’s life. AND, not to put him over the top, HAS A BRITISH ACCENT!

 photo kaiden_zps5d799e2d.jpg

Soooo when Kaiden suggests taking Anna across country to visit her father and a dying nun…yep you guessed it sparks are bound to fly and hearts are bound to get broken. Kinda reminds me of the song “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus (yes the one where she is naked in the video lol).

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was break me
Yeah, you wreck me

“There was nothing healthy about desperately wanting something you couldn’t have.”

I admit the ending left a bad taste in my mouth.

I am hoping and praying that the second installment in this series will give me more Kaiden and Anna :(, but all in all what a beautiful story Wendy. I can’t wait to get my hands on the other two.

OMG what just happened? Jen wow that was my favorite by far, but there is one little itty bitty teeny weeny problem…..

 photo cliffhanger_zps2bef5cb6.jpg

HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER WHAT A CLIFHANGER!!!!!! Damn you woman! Lol

 photo lux1_zps87218d81.jpg

That kiss broke me down and then rebuilt me. His kiss…well, it made me.
He made me
And because of that, I knew it went both ways. He made me. And I made him.

I really can’t go into detail about this story without making my fingers numb with spoiler tags. All I can say is there is a lot of Katy and A LOT of Daemon (insert nakedness) as well as suspense, drama, laughter and anguish. As well as plenty of luxens, arums and you get to meet the orgins (aka special snowflakes).
