Thursday: On My Wish List




Author: Jay Crownover
Title: Built
Coming out on January 5, 2016
Book 1 in the Saints of Denver series

Summary
(from goodreads)



From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series,Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.

Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.

Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn't matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn't return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.

But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.

About the author


JAY CROWNOVER   Being native Coloradan is a source of pride if you ask Jay.  She loves all the things her home has to offer, and that is why she set her books in this familiar place. Writing about what she knows is why her stories feature plenty of rock and roll and body modification.

Jay has been a bartender since she was in college, spending over forty hours a week watching interactions between men and women.  This 9 to 5 job offered great insights into relationships - how they start and how they evolve in a social setting.

This cutting-edge author likes to write New Adult novels because she remembers being in her early twenties and thinking she had it all figured out, only to be proven wrong time and time again.  When she looks back, she see's that those years defined who she is today, and, good or bad, those decisions ultimately set her current path.

Review: Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan



BWHB
Summary
(from goodreads)

I’m the daughter of murdered parents.
I’m the friend of a dead girl.
I’m the lover of my enemy.
And I will have my revenge.

In the wake of the devastating destruction of the luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace knows the terrifying truth, and she’ll stop at nothing to avenge the murders of everyone she held dear. Even if it means taking down the boy she loves and possibly losing herself in the process.

Sharp and incisive, Daughter of Deep Silence by bestselling author Carrie Ryan is a deliciously smart revenge thriller that examines perceptions of identity, love, and the lengths to which one girl is willing to go when she thinks she has nothing to lose.

Review:




I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as people's ratings went from good to bad, so I finally started it and I really liked it.

I gave it four stars, but my mind wandered between 3.5 and 4. I decided given that I love the author's writing style, I would give it a 4.

Carrie Ryan has a way to write about disasters that makes you want to read more and want to know how it will end and often, her endings leave you slightly on edge since there's always place to add more in the end and this book was no exception. I wouldn't want a whole other book because in my opinion it would serve no purpose, but I wouldn't mind knowing a bit more of what happened in the aftermath.

Frances is a character that is hard to identify with on many levels, but in others, you just can relate. She was a teenager when she lost everything and her whole world changed from being what she was used to, to becoming something different. Even if four years have passed since the tragedy, you can feel her inner battle to determine who she is actually while making sure she gets her revenge.

Her personality will either make you like her, pity her or hate her or all of them. Sometimes, I felt like she missed a lot of opportunities for help, wanting to control everything; wanting to be the one to make them pay; see them suffer. She could be selfish and she knew it too.

If sometimes, she couldn't grasp who she was or who she ought to be, she clearly understood that part of her that wanted revenge. She knew just how calculating she could be.

And yes, there is somewhat love in this, but even if it's the background, I felt like it felt hollow sometimes. A teenage love that she kept inside her until she is face to face with him again, but it feels like something is missing. I know when you're a teenager, you often believe that you are in love after a few days knowing someone, but four years has passed since she last saw him so I just feel there should have been something more to spark them again.

And the other characters whether they are good or bad didn't appeal to me as much; maybe because I felt we didn't know much about them or perhaps I'm just picky these days.

And I'm trying not to give too much even though a lot is known at the beginning of the book, but it's still a good read and I love Carrie's writing so I'll definitely pick her next book.

Cover Reveal: All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan (Devil's Rock, #1)




Author: Sophie Jordan

Summary
(from Avon)



There are bad boys and then there are the men of Devil’s Rock…. 

Some men come with a built-in warning label. Knox Callaghan is one of them. Danger radiates from every lean, muscled inch of him, and his deep blue eyes seem to see right through to Briar Davis’s most secret fantasies. But there’s one major problem: Briar is a nurse volunteering at the local prison, and Knox is an inmate who should be off-limits in every way.

Knox feels it too—a shocking animal magnetism that drives him to risk his own life to protect Briar’s. Paroled at last, he tries to resist her. She’s too innocent, too sweet, and she has no idea what Knox is capable of. But a single touch can lead to a kiss—and a taste…until the only crime is denying what feels so right…

Review:



My friend Nancy has been telling me about this author and this series for a while now and she even lent me her book to read, but since it was autographed and I was seriously scared that I could ruin it somehow, so I gave it back and started to read it on the ebook.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book; it could have gone either way, but I quickly loved the author's writing style. She had a way to express herself in this book that made it such an easy read.

And the characters... What can I say about the character. I could relate with Elli on so many levels and I think that's why it was so easy to read. Her doubts and fears are ones so many of us feel that you can't help but to connect with her. That said, they were times I just wanted to knock some senses into her, but I get that people around can tell us we are wrong but until we truly believe it, it just won't go through.

The thing that hurt me the most was Elli's family... well a good part of her family who were just so mean. I never thought that I could hate characters as much as I hated them. I'm just thanking God that Elli had a few members of her family that she could count to love her and always be there for her.

And Shea was the kind of man who was probably portrayed a little too perfect for my taste; but who cares, we all wanted him anyways hahaha And I know some people have issues when it comes to a womanizer suddenly become infatuate with a girl, thinking it's like impossible, but I like to believe there's always that one person who will make us want to have more so why couldn't it happen?

And Shae's family is so united that no wonder whoever came in contact with them felt part of their group quickly. And he has a twin sister, Grace, and I liked how she described their bond, but I will admit from time to time, I felt she was more there for him than him for her.

And now about Elli and Shae. Their story had ups and downs and there were times I felt like it was going crazy fast and sometimes, not enough, but overall, the story was a great read and entertainning. You couldn't help wanting to read the next chapter to see what else could happen.

And of course was can I say about their friends? I loved them. I wished we would had more Jakob, but it seemed that his role was really more passive. He was there but not really if it makes sense and perhaps is was because of Harper, Elli's best friend, who was really loud and took most of the place hahaha

So will I read more books from Toni Aleo? Definitely. I can't wait to continue the series and read her other series. She has a new fan in me.

Cover Reveal: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Lux, #1.5)




Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Summary
(from goodreads)



Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it. 

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are. 

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game. 

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

There’s an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he’s hot… until he opens his mouth. He’s infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he marks me.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Onyx
Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different…and I’m not sure what that will mean in the end.

Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Origin
Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?



Summary
(from goodreads)

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Summary

(from goodreads)

This standalone e-only short story follows the adventures of Simon Lewis, star of the #1 New York Times bestselling series, The Mortal Instruments, as he trains to become a Shadowhunter.

Review:



I love these novellas. Simon was always one of my favourite characters in the Mortal Instruments series and I just love getting to read more about him. Each novella brings us a new insight into the Shadowhunters' world.

I think that the fact that Simon was a mundane than a downworlder is really helpful for him to understand how nothing is always the same. Not all shadownhunters are the same, not all downworlders are the same and faeries aren't always what they seem.

There's evil everywhere, but there's also good and I think that Simon's path to become a Shadowhunter is going to show changes are needed in this world; for better or worse.

Simon is really a good guy and I love how he always try to be equal to everyone and I'm really excited for the next stories to come.

I just love that there are cameos from characters we love and I need to read about Alec and Simon talking; it needs to happen soon.

Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins (The Sweet Trilogy, #4)



BWHB
Summary

(from goodreads)

This swoonworthy, romantic companion novel to Wendy Higgins's New York Times bestselling Sweet Evil series is told from irresistible bad-boy Kaidan's point of view. Readers will love getting inside Kaidan's head, especially fans of the Divergent series by Veronica Roth, the Selection series by Kiera Cass, and Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire.

When bad-boy drummer Kaidan Rowe encounters good girl Anna Whitt, the girl chosen to vanquish the demons from earth, he can't stop thinking about her. The Nephilim son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan tries to help Anna embrace a life of sin, but she gradually helps him see that he's meant to do more with his life. Their relationship is as tortured as it is passionate, for Nephilim are forbidden to fall in love. But as hard as they may try to obey, Kai can't seem to stay away from Anna, nor Anna from Kai.

Full of chemistry and high-stakes drama, this companion book is darker, hotter, and completely satisfying.



Read from: September 10 to September 11, 2015
Read on: Ereader


Review:




I fell in love with Kaidan Rowe all over again with this book. I wouldn't advise to read this before you read the other 3 books because you might get confused because the author just goes through some big part of the other books quickly since she's really focusing on Kaidan's journey through the trilogy.

Reading from his perspective really helped us get to understand him more. I knew things weren't easy for him, but you really got to see just how hard it was for him. You learn a lot through him and reading his thoughts, his feelings was just heartbreaking sometimes. I won't lie sometimes I just thought he was an idiot and I wanted to slap him, but it always redeemed himself after that.

Reading about him and Anna brought me back to the first time I read the trilogy and I just couldn't wait to arrive to my favourite parts of their relationship.

And I missed reading about the other characters too. I liked to see them again and I won't lie, I would love to read more about them. Think Wendy could come up with some novellas for them? I'd like to know what happened to some of them.

So this is short, but seriously, if you get to read the trilogy, you have to read this one as well. I know some people don't nessarely enjoy reading the same story from the other main character's point of view, but this one is really worth it.

Wendy Higgins has brought us back to her world brillantly.

Recap: Book Event (RARE 2015)



RECAP: RARE 2015 BOOK EVENT


So I arrived at the Bonaventure Hotel with less than 5 hours of sleep in my body and alone. My book event buddy being unavailable to be there (she was there through her books she left me to get signed though hahahaha). So arrived a few minutes before the book retailer opened, ready to buy two copies of Christina Lauren's latest books.

And there were none. They hadn't been delivered to the right address. So after a few calls, they sent someone grab 18 copies of the said book and me and two other girls kept watch at the book retailer while being in line to get inside for the VIP time and once we saw the guy coming back, two of us rushed to the books.

The other one was really sweet and got inside along with my suitcase which I was really grateful for. :)

So then began the tour for my authors. I will admit that I didn't go see all of the authors present. I was really tired and though I was really excited, I just wanted to do the authors I was set to in the beginning and leave to go to my bed. Below, see proof of how much I needed sleep:


So first stop was Heidi McLaughlin (The Beaumont series, Lost in You series, The Archer Brothers series, The Reeducation of Savannah McGuire). She was really impressed with my pile of books (which was a total of 16 books) because I had my own and my friend Nancy's books to get. She had a few copies on her table and once I passed through them, her assistant had to refilled them. She was nice and told me that her first book in the Beaumont series (Forever My Girl) was going to be a movie and I got really excited. I will definitely go see it and I'm really intrigued to see who will play each character.

So below, you see Heidi signing one of the many copies she signed for me. This one was actually for my friend: 


And this is me and her:


Next stop was with Alice Clayton (Cocktail series, Wild Seasons series). So my pile of books was slightly less big there. I had about 10 books to get signed. She was really sweet and she told me about her new book series that she is co-written with Nina Bocci. The first novel will be called Roman Crazy and should come out next year.

So here's a picture of her with me: 


After that I was wondering who to go see next so I went to see Jennifer Probst (Sex on the beach series, Marriage to a Billionnaire series, Steele Brother trilogy, Searching For series). She was really one of the sweetest authors I met there. She was really excited to be in Montreal and you could tell she was really happy to be there. Bought two of her books but I intend to read more when my bank account allows me.

So of course I had to take a picture with her:


So between two of my authors, I went to see Carina Adams (Bama Boys series, The Bastard series) for my friend. She was lovely and asked me to say hi to my friend and tell her she was sorry she had missed her. I didn't have the time to read her books, but I will try to read them in a near future; I mean, she was just so nice.

Next came Helena Hunting (Clipped Wings series, Pucked series, The Librarian Principle). So I didn't get to finish Clipped Wings before the event. I actually read only a few chapters, but I was really hooked on her writing style that I bought the two books before the event. After meeting her, I finally decided that even if I didn't have that money to buy The Librarian Principle because it was really asking me to buy it and to read it hahaha.

Here's me and Helena: 


After that, I went to search for my friend's authors because I really wanted to be sure I had all of her books signed since she couldn't be there so Sarina Bowen (The Ivy Years series, Gravity Series, Him (co-written with Elle Kennedy)) was next. We spoke a little and I admit that I wasn't sure if I would read her books, but now, I just have to. I wish authors were less nice so I didn't feel like reading their books and keep my bank account happy ;).

Next I went to see J.M. Darhower (Sempre series, Monter in his Eyes series, Forbidden series, Extinguish series). I didn't know that author so it was nice to meet her. I read the summary behind the book my friend bought from her and I might have to add it to my to-read list. She was really nice and so was her little helper. And I have to add this: she had the coolest tattoo on her arm of captain america and Winter Soldier (Bucky).

Next I went to see Shay Savage (Surviving Raine series, Even Arden series, Caged series, Offside). So when I went to see her, she wasn't there, but a cute guy was there. I'll admit that I didn't know if he was a cover model or helper at first, but he was still very cute. So while waiting for Shay's return, he got the book for my friend and we had a little problem to solve before I could walk away with it, but it was all good. They were both nice about the whole thing. And while looking at the stuff on her table, I had my answer; he was a cover model.

So then I went to see Ilsa Madden-Mills (Briarcrest series, Dirty English). She was really nice and if I'm not mistaken, she was there with her husband who was really nice also. Helped her out with the books while she signed the two stacks for me and my friend. I was running out of time for the VIP hour or else, I would have asked her about her upcoming book Dirty English, but I'm still excited to read that book.

And did I take a picture? Of course and here is that picture:


And last but not least, I met Christina Lauren. Well, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings to be more accurate. These two authors are co-written series like Beautiful Bastards and Wild Seasons. They were really nice and we talked a bit. They liked my Jensen and Jared T-shirt and Christina told me about her upcoming photo-op with Chris Evans (yes, I was extremely jealous),

So here's a picture of me with these two ladies:


So what did I get signed, well, let's find out:


Of course, I got myself and Nancy some swags from there, so look at what authors had to offer us:


Imagine if I had stopped at each author's table how much more stuff I would have. Anyways, I had a great time and talked to nice authors and people. If I wouldn't have been so tired, I might have survived to come back after the lunch break, but I went home and fell asleep,

But before I actually had to go home, I went to give my friend Nancy's books to her work place. Caught her while she was on her lunch break and she was really happy with her signed books so it made me happy.

So that's the recap of my RARE 2015 book event.
