One year ago, Kitty’s boyfriend Nikki
Bramley visited a psychic who told him he had no future. Now, he’s dead.
With the Bramley family grieving in
separate corners of their home, Kitty sets out to find the psychic who read
Nikki his fate. Instead she finds Roan, an enigmatic boy posing as a medium who
belongs to the Life and Death Parade–a group of supposed charlatans that
explore, and exploit, the thin veil between this world and the next. A group
whose members include the psychic… and Kitty’s late mother.
Desperate to learn more about the group
and their connection to Nikki, Kitty convinces Roan to return to the Bramley
house with her and secures a position for him within the household. Roan
quickly ingratiates himself with the Bramleys, and soon enough it seems like
everyone is ready to move on. Kitty, however, increasingly suspects Roan knows
more about Nikki than he’s letting on. And when they finally locate the Life
and Death Parade, and the psychic who made that fateful prophecy to Nikki,
Kitty uncovers a secret about Roan that changes everything.
From rising star Eliza Wass comes a
sophisticated, mesmerizing meditation on the depths of grief and the magic of
faith. After all, it only works if you believe it.

Spooky Scary Book Tag

I came across this Tag on the Awkward Book Bloggers Blog and I knew it would be perfect to do for Halloween!

Let’s get started:

1. What goes bump into the night? Name a book that has legitimately scared you while reading it.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth! My sister recommended this series to me but I didn’t realize just how creepy it was going to be!

51XFBUcAZnL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_


 

2. Jack O’ Lanterns and Classic Costumes – A book you always reach for during Halloween time.

Hmm, I don’t really have one, to be honest, I just pick whatever strikes my mood at the time.

3. Black Cats and Magic Mirrors – A book you love that is laced with superstition and/or magic

A Court of Mist and Fury!! There is much magic in this book! I absolutely love it!

4. Witch’s Brew – Favorite witch character in any book/series.

This heard I don’t read that many books with Witches in them. I’d probably have to go with Manon Blackbeak from Throne of Glass because she is such a badass!

5. Ghouls and Ghosts – A book that still haunts you to this day (good or bad)

Nocte mainly because it was just soooo weird and I still don’t know what I believe about the ending. If you’ve read it I’m sure you’ll know what I mean.

6. Haunted Graveyard – You’re all alone in a haunted graveyard and you get ONE book to give you comfort. Which is it?

Shacking Up by Helena Hunting, because its light and funny and would distract me from being scared.

7. The Undead – Favorite supernatural creature to read about (ex. vampires, zombies, werewolves, etc.)

Do Fae count?? I’m making them count because I’m not overly fussed on the others and there is just something so magical about fae I could read books about them all day every day.

8. In the dead of night – Pick a book with a black cover

Rhapsodic, not only the cover black the book is amazing!

That’s it! I’m not tagging anyone specific but do feel free to have a go yourselves!

Happy Halloween! 👻

Enough – Danielle Norman

Synopsis  

ARIEL & KAYSON
Some things in life were inevitable; death, taxes, and lying, whoremongering men.
One woman would never be enough for one man.
So I traded in men for a Harley.
Nothing beats that kind of power between my legs.
Then I blinked.
And he was there.

Some things in life were inevitable; death, taxes, and badge bunnies willing to hop into my bed.
The only problem is I’m a one woman kind of man.
In my line of work, I’ve seen it all.
Nothing bothers me until I find a woman’s wrecked body.
When she blinked,
My world changed.

Forever doesn’t come close to giving me enough of her.

Genre: Romance
Page Length: 252
Characters: Ariel & Kayson

Format: eBook


Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for honest review.

Ariel has had it rough after her mum dies she moves to Orlando to make a fresh start. Things are going well until she is jumped by two thugs. Enter Kayson who her comes her ‘Knight in Shining Armour’

Kayson can’t stop thinking about the beautiful women who he saved, and makes it his mission to make her his.

This story was nothing like I expected to be, I mean that in a good way. As someone who doesn’t really read crimish books I was surprised at how much I ended up liking it. The story writing actually reminded me a little of Till Death by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This book is a great mix of romance, crime and smut.

The sex scenes in the story scorching! Ariel and Kayson have chemistry galore!

I really liked Kayson, he is from a fairly big Greek family, which was a refreshing change from the usual male leads that I have read recently. I thought it was really sweet that his made focus was to keep Ariel safe.

Ariel is a wannabe biker chick, I liked how feisty and independent she is and her group of biker girlfriends were pure joy to read.

The Bottom Line:

If you like your romance with a touch of crime/suspense then its really worth giving this book a go.

My Rating:  4/5  🌟🌟🌟🌟

 [Book Review] Slumber (Beauty Never Dies Chronicles #1) by J.L. Weil 

Synopsis  

There is no such thing as happily ever after. Everything Charlotte Winston thought she knew has been thrown out the window. From the moment she opens her eyes, the world she remembered ceases to exist, and in its place is a post-apocalyptic realm filled with unimaginable dangers. And one very smoking hot guy who has an uncanny ability to make her blood sing, then boil in a blink of an eye. Dash Darhk is everything her parents would hate. He’s six feet and two inches of dark temptation and a killer smile, that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in his wake. But her parents are nowhere to be found. Charlotte is alone in this new world. Destroyed by a toxic mist, the land isn’t the only thing altered, but the inhabitants as well. As Charlotte begins the hunt for her family, gifts she’s never fathom awake inside her. And with the gifts come problems. Enormous ones. Charlotte is running out of options and places to hide. If she can’t figure out who to trust-and fast-she will lose more than her heart. Fans of Hunger Games, The 100, and Divergent will fall in love with Slumber.

Review

This was another book that I found on my kindle the other day, I’ve been reading a lot of normal romance recently so I fancied something a bit different and this ticked the box.

The story starts off a little sleeping beauty esque, when Dash find Charlotte asleep and is compelled to kiss, and this leads to her waking up after 100 years of slumber. Charlotte wakes to a very different world. Everything she once knew is gone.

I really liked the story it was a nice blend of romance & dystopia. I thought the world building was very good, it was refreshing different from anything I’ve read recently.

I think I enjoyed Dash’s character more than Charlotte, he was intriguing and has lots of secrets, I’m looking forward to finding out more about him the next book. Charlotte was ok, she just seemed a little more immature by I’m hoping her character develops more as the story goes on.

The Bottom Line:

This was a really nice little story, I really enjoyed it and I already have the next book pre-ordered.

My Rating:  3/5  🌟🌟🌟

[Book Review] The Emperor of Evening Stars – by Laura Thalassa 

Synopsis  

In the beginning, there was darkness. 
Before he met Callie, before he became the Bargainer, there was Desmond Flynn, the bastard son of a scribe. A boy born to a weak mother, cursed with little magic, and destined to marry a slave.

But fate had something else in mind.

Till darkness dies. 
From the barren caves of Arestys to the palace of Somnia to the streets of earth, this is how Desmond Flynn, a fairy who began with nothing, became the Emperor of Evening Stars.


More Details

Genre: Paranormal
Page Length: 186
Characters: Desmond Flynn
Publication Date: 15th October 2017
Format: eBook


Review

The Emperor of Evening Stars is a Novella that accompanies The Bargainer Trilogy. So if you if you’ve not read Rhapsodic or A Strange Hymn then I advise you to stop reading now and go read them because they are awesome!

This novella was perfection, this is the story of Desmond Flynn and what a story it is and it all starts with his mother’s escape from his father. I really really love this story, my only complaint is that it wasn’t longer because I could read about Des all day.

I love how deeply complex he is and learning more about his background homed that in more than ever. I love how he switches from good guy to bad ass motherf*#cker in 0.5 seconds!

“Coldly, I break his femur. While he’s still screaming, I crush his kneecap. His shrieks are the sweetest music”

And let’s not forget his love for Callie, some of the passages where he is describing his love for her are so swoony.

The Bottom Line:

If like me you are Desmond Flynn fan then this is a must – Dear gods I love him 😍

My Rating:  5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
