Early Review: Banishing the Dark by Jenn Bennett

A bittersweet, but satisfying ending to one of my favorite series!

{Blog Tour} Review: See You in Hell by Demelza Carlton + Giveaway

A humorous tale of an angel who gets a less than heavenly assignment and unexpectedly finds romance with the Lord of Hell! SEE YOU IN HELL is a light and fun read that’s two parts office satire and one part paranormal romance. Set in a corporate environment, it’s a unique premise to the usual angel vs. demons with tons of sexual innuendos and plenty of wit. Anyone who’s ever worked in an office can identify with Carlton’s parody of HELL! […]


Review: House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter

Review: House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter

A fascinating new paranormal world set in the perfect setting, New Orleans! When I first picked this book up I wasn’t aware it’s a spin-off of Kristen Painter’s House of Comarre series (which I haven’t read yet). My reading OCD took over for a minute but I decided to continue reading anyway. In no way did I feel I was missing out on any story line from past events in this book and while the main character Augustine appeared in […]


{Blog Tour} Mini Review: Alabaster Nights by Elle J Rossi

{Blog Tour} Mini Review: Alabaster Nights by Elle J Rossi

  Sexy Irish vampire meets his match in a smart-mouthed supernatural huntress! ALABASTER NIGHTS is a short but fantastic introduction to Ms. Rossi’s characters Josie and Keller of The Josie Hawk Chronicles and tells the story of how they initially met. Told by alternate POVs, we get a feel for the hero and heroine’s distinct personalities through Ms. Rossi’s great character development. I’m not always a fan of dual narratives (this book includes third and first person), but in this […]

Another sexy installment to the series. I wasn’t expecting all the smexiness between Duncan and Kimber, but even the zombie apocalypse couldn’t stop these two from keeping their hands off each other! VAMPIRE’S THIRST picks up right where VAMPIRE’S HUNGER left off, with the zombie apocalypse in full swing. Since de-throning his vampire Queen, Duncan is acclimating to his new role as leader which is proving to be tougher than killing a horde of zombies! The humans living in the […]

Review: Ember X by Jessica Sorensen

Review: Ember X by Jessica Sorensen

Loved the premise but was a little frustrated by the characters! I’ll start my review by saying this is my first book by the author and I don’t really read too much of the New Adult or Young Adult genres, so bear with me if my review seems a little critical. EMBER X is a revamped and “uncut” NA version of the author’s original YA title. Had I realized this before reading it I would have prepared myself for some […]
