HOLY HELL WHAT DID I JUST READ?
all packed into 262 pages. Fucking…Epic.
He lied. I lied. Any love that starts out under a lie is bound to kill you
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.
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.
“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.
“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!
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!
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.
5+++++ Wonderful, Crazy, Suspenseful it doesn’t get any better than this STARS!!!!!!
OMG what just happened? Jen wow that was my favorite by far, but there is one little itty bitty teeny weeny problem…..
HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER WHAT A CLIFHANGER!!!!!! Damn you woman! Lol
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).
SooooooOOOOOooooooo Jen do me a big favor and get those little fingers working on the next book!!! I’m going to pee my pants I’m so ready for it!
Got this ARC from Read It & Reap for a fair and honest review. Thank you Shewanda Pugh for giving me the opportunity
4.5 Awesome Stars!!!
You all know the story. Two people meet and fall in love. But what if society told you that you could never be together…
If you were Deena Hammond and Takisum Tankaka you save to hell with the world and do it anyway!!!!
Meet Deena Hammond. A insecure biracial woman from a very strong rooted African American family. She is struggling to find her place in the family and has always felt out of place.
She is beautiful.
She was free
She was Deena.
Now meet Tak. He is from a very successful Japanese family. He is an artist. He is confident. He is blown away by Deena and can’t get her out of his mind.
They cannot resist the pull to each other so start a fly by the seat of your pants love affair and hide it from Tak’s father (aka Deena’s boss) for three years.
But what if a hidden love affair was not enough? Do they risk everything to be together?
“I love you, Dee. I’ve never doubted that you were the woman for me.”
Well done Shewanda Pugh. I loved the different POVs as well as they vulnerability you can show in your characters. You will hate them one chapter and feel sorry for them in the next.
Can’t wait to start reading book two!!!!
This book was all about the Big O and OOOOOOOOO did I love it!
I could feel the chemistry between Carline and Simon shooting off the pages through my hands to all different and inappropriate places of my body.
Alice Clayton you are a God. You had me rolling on more than one
“Get your ass over here you motherfuckin movie pusher!!
and that last chapter was EPIC…I mean who would have thought about that???
Purina, Wallbanger, Pink nightie girl…OMG at the name calling in this book lol but then again no wonder Simon was smitten.
All in all it was a very enjoyable read and I will be adding all Alice’s books to my “must read” list!
Oh how I have missed Suzanne’s sense of humor. This book stroked my funny and pleasure bone at the same time!!!!!
“Give me a number between one and twenty.”
Unable to see where this is going, she shrugged. “Eleven.”
“You lose. Now strip off your clothes.”
“Dante’s about to Google my Yahoo and Twitter my cli–“
lol Dominic had me rolling several times too!
Jamie and Dante’s story was sweet, funny and very erotic. You fall in love with them while they fall in love with eachother.
AND there is plenty of Taryn and Trey….lol and Greta to leave you highly anticipating the next chapter.
I had to share this this part about Taryn and the baby.
“No, I’m done! I’m tired, I’m sweaty, I’m in agony, and why do I feel like I need to shit?”
“It’s totally natural to feel that way,” said Grace in a placatory, calming voice. “Some women even have one during labor.”
“What?” The word dripped with horror. “Women can shit when they’re in labor? Tell me that won’t happen to me! Don’t you let me shit, Grace!”
Please Please PLEASE Suzanne carry on with this series! I would really hope to see a book about each character (kinda like a shifter version of Black Dagger Brotherhood…yum!)….maybe oh I don’t know Nick, Shayla, Nick, Shayla, Nick, Shayla!!! *crossing fingers*
This book ruined me. I can’t get it out of my head. THE BEST LOVE STORY I HAVE EVER READ.
SO GOT AHEAD GRAB YOUR HANKIE, YOUR VIBRATOR AND MAKE A STRONG POT OF COFFEE BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO NEED ALL OF THEM. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!
Whew first off what a ride. I cried, I laughed…the people at the gym probably thought I was a crazy person bawling my eyes out on the bicycle.
We start off with Cam, a 20 year old girl who has been dealt a shitty hand. Her first love died in a car crash at 16, her brother is in prison and her friend just told her to take a flying hiatus. Loves country folk music and keeping her hair in braids and decides one day that she has had enough and hops on a bus to Idaho.
I think Tamsin Egerton makes a perfect Cam
In walks in Andrew who happens to hop on that same bus to Wyoming to see his dying father.
I think a young Tom Welling
Fist off the chemistry is dynamic. It reminds me of the first time I fell in love….the way that the author can put you in the story takes my breath away.
Their love for each other is amazing and you are like come on get on with it already….you two are made for each other!!!!
My heart goes out for these two and I LOVED LOVED LOVED the ending.
So run don’t walk to get this book and start reading it.
FUCK YEAH!!!! NOW THAT IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!!!! LADIES KEEP YOUR VIBRATORS ON STAND BY FOR THIS ONE!!!
Let me start off by saying Suzanne Wright I want to permanently embed myself in your brain….wow woman you have quite the imagination!!!!
I can safely say that Taryn is my favorite female character to date. She is strong, smart and spunky….omg I was laughing so hard at her witty comebacks…
“I’m not tired. I’m just checking my eyelids for holes. It could take a while”
“Is there no way you could just pull your bottom lip over your head and swallow”
AND DOMINIC lol I love love love his cheesy pickup lines…“He motioned with one finger for her to go to where he was on the end of the chaise. Rolling her eyes, she walked over and sighed.
He smiled. “I just made you come with one finger. Imagine what I could do with my whole hand.”
Both Taryn and Trey’s story captivated me. The sex sizzled and the character building was on point….AND the orgy scene omg! Even though it was a bit out of character for Trey to just hand over his girl I still loved reading it (had to refresh the batteries lol)
Ok so I really can’t think of who Trey looks like so I added Joe just for good measure because he is still my favorite wolf! hehe
I CAN’T CAN’T CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT INSTALLMENT!!!
