Review: Haunted on Bourban Street by Deanna Chase


19521037 I have wanted to read this book for a LONG time now and I am so upset with myself that I have waiting so long.

This had the perfect amount of all the elements...mystery, romance, thriller, suspense, humor, you name it.

I thought this book was excellent! I absolutely LOVED the main character. She was smart, witty and has a charm about her that makes you understand her more than most characters in a book.

Jade has a special ability that she has pretty much ran from her entire life. Mostly because it has labeled her a freak but after moving into a so called "haunted" apartment, things start to happen that allows her to be herself with the acceptance of others.

I dont want to get too into the characters on this book without giving anything away but there are a few characters that have a major importance to this story. We have Kane, the apartment owner/strip club owner/sexy as hell boss, Pyper, the co landlord/owner of the grind/boss/friend and more, Kat, the long time best friend and a few others that are in there but those are the main ones to focus on.

I can't wait to jump into the next book in this series right away. I fell in love instantly!! A MUST READ!

Review: Stillwell: A Haunting on Long Island by Michael Phillip Cash

18106337Let me start by saying I don’t generally read thrillers but boy am I happy I read this. Stillwell was my first read by this author and I can guarantee this won’t be my last. This book kept me flipping through the pages without wanting to stop…sorry kids; “dinner might be late tonight” was definitely said in my house. Paul Russo…poor man. He just lost the love of his life due to cancer. Learning how to become a full time dad and work full time as a realtor wasn’t easy…not to mention the horrible nightmares and ghost that keeps showing up at the house he needs to sell in order to make up for lost money due to trying to save his wife. Stillwell is a fast paced thriller that will keep you on your toes. The author has a way of pulling you in as if you are there next to the character through his journey. I highly recommend this read to anyone. Even if you aren’t into thrillers, you should give this a shot. Cant wait to read more from this author.

Excerpt
She clenches her teeth. “You can’t keep me here …” “Watch me.” I lean against the wall, picking up a lighter and a pack of cigarettes. I’ve been dying for a smoke ever since I found her in that room. “And then what? Is this supposed to scare me?” she says, her hand fisted like she’s trying to resist, even though there is no way out of this. I smile and put down the lighter. “If you think I am doing all this just to scare you, you’re mistaken.” “Then what is the reason, huh? Why are you keeping me prisoner?” She fights the tears in her eyes. I can’t help feel a little overcome with the urge to grab her and kiss her to take away all the hurt. However, I can’t. The past cannot be erased. What we are is set in stone and nothing can chafe away the rugged surface of our souls. I’d be a liar if I said it doesn’t pain me to see her hurt, but I like pain. I live for it. I was reborn in it. I don’t fear it. On the contrary, I survive on it. Pain is a means to an end and her pain is my end. If she stops feeling pain, then so do I, and that would mean the end. It’s too soon. I need her pain to feel alive. And so, I will continue to make her answer for her sins. “A man must do what a man must do,” I say. “A man? How can you call yourself a man? You’re a monster.” The look in her eyes, so in awe of my wickedness, is exhilarating. I smile. “Thank you.” Her jaw drops, a brow rises, and she snarls. It’s amusing to see the mixed emotions scatter on her face. “Are you insane? Why are you thanking me?” “Because I’d rather be a monster than a man in your eyes. Being a monster beats being a wretched human being. You’ve freed me of the burden of having to act sane. So yes, you could say that I am insane.” She just stares at me, her mouth open, but in complete silence, like she’s at a loss for words. “Believe me when I say you are better off with me than out there,” I say. “You’re mad! You wanted to kill me, and now you say I’ll be safe with you?” she scoffs. “I never said you’ll be safe with me. I can get quite dangerous …” A smile quirks up my face. She shivers. Clutching her body, she stampedes toward me. “Let me out.” I grab both her arms, squeezing tight as I hold her back and look down at her. “You don’t want to do that.” “I want anything but staying here with you.” She tries to jerk free, but I keep her close, forcing her to listen. She cannot leave me, because I won’t allow it, but I’ll give her a good reason as well. “Do you think I am the worst thing that could overcome you?” I lean forward and whisper into her ear. “There is more evil out there than you think.” Her breath comes in short gasps, her tits pushing up against me as her chest rises. Courage is making place for fear again, I can feel it on her skin. It’s riveting. She fights me, her arms locking with mine as she attempts to free herself from my grasp, but I twist her in my arms and keep her hands behind her back. Her ass is bumping against my cock, straining it to the limit. God, I love it when she struggles. I never stopped loving it. “Do you think I’m the only one who came for you, huh?” I whisper in her ear. “That I’m the only one who wants you dead?” She shakes her head, and I can feel her heart thrumming through her chest. “Did you see those men that were following us? Can you guess what they wanted?” “Me?” I smirk. “Great deduction. Now, there is a difference between them and me; can you tell me what it is?” It’s quiet for a few seconds. I guess she really hasn’t figured it out yet. “They want your head. I want your body.” She swallows, and it turns me on so much I want to rip off her clothes right now and do her against the door. But I don’t. Taking her would be so easy, it would take all the fun out of it. I want her to offer herself to me willingly. I want to see the regret in her eyes afterwards when she realizes she gave her body to the devil. “But …. I don’t understand. I thought you wanted me dead?” “I did. Now I want more.” She gasps. “Why? What changed?” “I did.”

New Releases This Week


Here are just a few novels that have been released this week so far. There are so many great books this summer that I can't keep up! I'm sure you are all having the same problems as me. TOO MANY BOOKS...TOO LITTLE TIME!



Mr. X by Clarissa Wild - New Release

I have been super excited about this one. I cant wait to read it. Its a dark, thriller, romance but unlike others. Just read the blurb:

"  *Author Note: This is not your average romance story. Some people will kill for love.*

He’s come to kill me.

I’m a user and abuser of my own body. In my darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.

Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.

I don’t know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I’ll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X: the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?  "



Break the Sky by Nina Lane - New Release on July 29th

A new hot read by the author of the Spiral of Bliss Series, Nina Lane. This is a spin- off novel that sounds super HOT. Bad boy Archer and Atmospheric Scientist Kelsey get together to create their own type of storm...SOUNDS awesome and can't wait to read this one.







Let Me Love You (The Love Series 4) by Megan Smith - New Release

This is the fourth book in The Love Series by Megan Smith. Although this is the first book for Cooper and Jaylinn they have been featured in the previous books in the series. I would recommend reading these in order to avoid any confusion. Some feel this ends with a cliffhanger but other says it isn't much of one but leaves you with knowing there will be more. These have great ratings and I look forward to reading this series. Book 1, Book 2, Book 3.



Ready to Wed by Cindi Madsen - New Release

This looks really good. It's about a girl who writes about love and weddings that gets jilted at her own wedding. Not really a second chance romance but a reconnect with childhood friend who turns HOT. I love these kinds of reads. You know there will be a happy ending, emotional and I even heard there is some laugh out loud moments.






Taken by Lora Leigh - New Release

This is a collection of short stories by one of the best erotica authors out there.  Six different stories in one. Lora Leigh never seems to disappoint in the steam factor. So if your looking for a bunch of short stories that are bound to be sexy sexy...GO FOR IT!!





Uninhibited by Melody Grace - New Release

This is the second book in the Callahan Series and the sixth book in the Beachwood Bay Series. This can be read as a stand alone if wanted but the other books in the series have great ratings so you might want to give them a try as well.  This book sound HOT though..just read this:
"Rock star Dex Callahan swore his days of fame and debauchery were behind him, but the spotlight keeps calling his name. Determined not to fall into his old life, he goes looking for distraction -- and finds an intoxicating red-head with a mouth made for sin. One kiss could never be enough, so Dex offers her a deal: spend one week with him, and she'll forget her old flame ever existed."

Release Blitz - Three Years by Lili St Germain

Title: Three Years (Gypsy Brothers, #5)
Author: Lili St. Germain
Publication Date: July 20, 2014
Genre: Dark Romance
                                                           goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47  
Synopsis
Every day for six years, I used to pray that I would find my way back to the boy I loved. Until finally, one day, I did. But that’s the funny thing about life. Nothing good ever lasts, not for me, anyway. You think you’re the one with the power, at least I did, but then I got careless. One tiny mistake, and now I am powerless to stop what comes next. People think money equals power, but all the money in my bank account, the dirty notes laundered clean that my father left for me, are useless.
Money does not equal power. Power is held by the one with the knife in his hand, tracing shallow cuts into your skin. Power is held by the one who owns you. I had power once. Now, I have nothing.  
Teaser
“I’ve got a surprise for you today,” Dornan says throatily, his mouth quirked into a dark smile, a smile that feeds off my suffering. A smile marked with my blood, his full lips coated in a red sheen. Surprises are bad. I don’t like his surprises. They always hurt me, make me bleed. I don’t even know if I’ve got any blood left in me to bleed for him. I cry softly as I remember the last words he spoke to me, in his office before he pressed the rag to my face and held it there until the noxious fumes in the material stole my consciousness. “I know you think this is going to be bad,” he had said, his grip against my face almost enough to break my jaw. “But however bad you think this is going to be? It’s going to be so. Much. Worse.” **UNEDITED AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE**     10563485_1473505436227113_1528489458_n

Book Review- Love, In English by Karina Halle

"There is nothing wrong with wanting to be happy and believing you deserve to be happy."

Brilliant, heartfelt, and breath taking....is a few words that describe this book. I have not cried so hard while reading in such a long time. I was taken to a place so real, I could feel the characters emotions as if they were my own.

Vera Miles is a 23 Canadian student studying astronomy.  Although she is a private person emotionally she is a not one to ever be alone. She likes sex, parties and trying new things which is why she ends up in Spain.

After joining a program where all she has to do is speak English all day long she meets a bunch of new people. Las Palabras, the place where Vera's life changes. She has never been close with her family at home aside from her brother so she didn't expect to feel the closeness she does with these new people in her life.


"You bond with people here, like you never would otherwise. They become your life, your...universe." 

There is one person in particular that she felt an instant connection with. Mateo Cassalles, 38, and married....yup, married. Oh Mateo, he was just perfect in his own way. He and Vera have a special bond between them. I think I feel just as hard for Mateo as Vera did...he was amazing.

"I was angry at how unfair life was, how it could present me a man that I felt a deep-souled connection to, but could never have him be fully available to me."

A month at Las Palabras changed Vera's life forever. I have never felt as much heartache for a character as I did for Vera. She broke me. I couldn't deal with it. The amount of love she had for Mateo and how much he cared for her was beyond words. They were meant to be but it was not their time....

This was such a great read. Mateo was such a strong character. He had such faith in Vera and his new universe. His love for his daughter, his love for Vera, his ability to do what is right for everyone. The situations that Vera put him through, throughout the entire book and he still kept faith...he knew while everyone else didn't. He made me feel like maybe, just maybe there is an amazing person out there even after you think your life is settled. He gives you hope.
PLEASE read this book. I promise you wont be disappointed. Karina Halle never fails to give you the best stories.

Fashionably Dead Down Under by Robyn Peterman


5 Stars!!

Another amazingly awesome hilarious read by Robyn Peterman.  Her writing is so easy and fun to read and I from now on will read every single book she ever writes.

Fashionably Dead Down Under is book 2 in the series so I highly recommend you read the first book before this or you will be completely confused.  It continues right where book 1 left off and this book was so flippin funny!!!

Astrid is seriously one kick ass girl well vampyre.  If you really liked her in the first book, she will blow your mind with this one. Her unfiltered mouth is the best thing in the world!! Who in their right mind would ever talk back to Satan or better yet call him and God a pansy ass? Yea, see, she is awesome!

I won’t talk too much about this since it is the second book in the series and I don’t want to spoil a single thing for anyone. This was full of new characters from the seven deadly sins, Hell Hounds that talk with their eyebrows (hilarious), God, to Mr. FREAKING ROGERS!!! There is our old favorites too which include Astrid (of course), Ethan and the adorably hilarious boob loving baby demons. The connection you feel with all these characters blew my mind. By the end of the book I felt as if I have known Astrid my entire life.

I love the way the author writes.  Everything flows perfectly and there is never a dull moment. I am a HUGE fan of this author. She has made me fall in love with paranormal all over again. I can’t wait for the next book and to start her other series as well.

This series is a must must read! I love it and the author just informed me that book 3 Hell on Heels will be out in August and it will be Dixie’s story. The first book is still FREE on Amazon so there is no reason you cant give this a try. LOVED this one even more than the first so give it a try!!!!
