[Netgalley Review] Covet Author Melissa Darnell

Covet by Melissa Darnell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Covet picks up where Crave left, Savannah has saved Tristans from the Vampire council but it comes at a price Savannah has promised to break up with Tristan and never see him again. But what Savannah isn't prepared for is Tristan, who vowed not to give up on Savannah and he promised her that he would find a way for them to be together. Soon they realize that they arnt prepared for what has been thrown at them.

Will there love survive both the Vampire Council and The Clann or will they be torn apart for good?

Better than the first book it seemed better composed and it had you guessing Savannah and Tristans future together the whole book. What bothered me alot and made me give the book 3 stars was that Tristan and Savannah went back and forth through out the whole book. They did the whole I love you but I can't be with you, and I love you and I want to be with you lets try it again through out the entire book. I was seriously fed up ,and by the end of the book I really did not care if they ended up together or not all I wanted was for them to decided and to STOP going back and forth because it took up to much of the books time.

I will definitely read the next book the ending was satisfying and redeemed the book for me.

[Review] Solid Author Shelley Workinger

Solid by Shelley Workinger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can't believe I waited so long to read this book it was really good.

Calliope is one of hundred teenagers that was sent to a Army base to do research on after Colonel Clark finds out that drugs were given to pregnant women, and they want to find out if the drugs have any permanent affects or if it has altered there DNA. Soon Clio and her friends find out that the drugs give them a little extra something something some of the kids are abnormally good athletes and some are great artist but the the third are the "normal kids" which soon Clio finds out is a lie they have the ability to become invisible. So now Clio and her friends have to find out why they have been lied to and why? They soon realize that their is someone out their who means them harm so now they have to find out what's going on and who's behind everything before it's to late.

For being Shelley first novel it was really good. I found that most first time author'shave their story line all over the place but Shelley kept the issue of the book front focus she didn't put the romance aspect of the book as front focus don't get me wrong I love Romance books but sometimes Romance takes front focus and distracts me from the main issue and I end up hating the book because of it. But Shelley found a perfect balance of both Romance/Action. Only issue I had was that the book wasn't long enough and that the ending was not satisfying at all.

I will definitely read the next book.

[Review] The Light Tamer Author Devyn Dawson

The Light Tamer by Devyn Dawson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Jessie has had her world turn upside down in two weeks her father has left to Greece to find him self and her mother has forced Jessie to visit her Grandmother for the summer who lives in North Carolina.
If that wasn't enough she finds out she's a light tamer and she has a soulmate who happen to be the Nerdy kid who saved her from drowning when she was a kid,but now he's not so Nerdy anymore he's all grown and hot. But soon Jessie will find out that not everything is perfect there are bad light tamers out there who will try to suck the light out of Jessie and Caleb. Now Caleb and Jessie have to figure out who's trying to steal there light before it's to late.


The book had great potential but it was way to short and i felt like none of the characters where well developed. Also Jessie's and Caleb relationship felt to superficial.

Not in Caleb's view of point because I could actually see that he truly loves Jessie since the day he saved her from drowning and gave her a piece of his heart. But in Jessie's view point she only remembers Caleb as the scrawny pale,creepy kid who use to always hang around her trying to hold her hand,and her opinion of Caleb totally changes after she see's him and he's all hot and sexy it's like seriously? What if he would have still been the scrawny pale kid would you still feel the same way and have that "unexpected connection "that makes you want to kiss him the instant you see him?

I don't know through out the whole book Jessie bothered me I just did not like her she just seemed so stupid and I officially hated her towards the end when she forgot who Caleb was and the way and was like out of love with him and in love with another (she was hit by some lightning and forgot who Caleb was and lost her bond with Caleb when some other light tamer saved her so now she has bonded with some other dude which by the way don't remember his name and don't feel like looking it up cause he's not important,all you need to know about him is he's a douche and doesn't even come close to measuring up to Caleb} It's like seriously? Especially after Caleb was there the whole time trying to make her remember and Jessie seemed totally uncaring she was rude and mean to Caleb the entire time telling him to get out and that she doesn't want to see him.

I totally felt for Caleb I actually wanted to cry for him because he has suffered all these years without Jessie and she can't even bother to remember and instead of trying to remember she's all up on some other guy who by the way comes out of no where and says he's her soul mate, seriously can Caleb catch a break. But it all worked out in the end sort of I was kinda confuse and I'm looking forward to reading the next book and seeing if Jessie gets a clue and starts acting like she really loves Caleb cause if I was Caleb I would kick Jessie to the curve.

[Review] What The Heart Wants: Author Kelli McCracken

What the Heart Wants by Kelli McCracken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

MUST READ !!!!!!

Heaven (OMG love that name) is in L.A. for the weekend to attend her bestfriends wedding along with her sisters Faith,and Hope who also happen to be her triplets and during the wedding recital she meets,Dylan who she instantly feels connected to and feels like she knows him from somewhere

But what Heaven doesn't know is that Dylan feels the same way and that the first time Dylan saw Heaven he instantly knew that she is the girl of his dream literally the girl of his dreams.
Dylan has been dreaming about Heaven for the past six months and he feels like he's missing a part of his heart until he meets Heaven,now all Dylan has to do is man up and tell Heaven how he feels but it's not as easy as he thinks because Dylan is afraid that Heaven doesn't feel the same way.

Will Dylan get over his fears and tell Heaven how he feels or will he let his fears ruine everything?

Dylan is just OMG there is no word to describe him he's just perfect in the best way. The way Dylan and Heaven interact you could tell right away they are meant to be together forever and whatI love best about the book is how Dylan and Heaven came to be soul mate, I swear I was literally crying during some parts especially when the book switched to Dylan POV gah I wish the whole book would have been in Dylan's POV the way his mind worked and the way he feels is just inspiring and it has me wishing for true love.
I'm glad I read this book I almost didn't because the cover just didn't do it for me,so if your holding back on reading this book because of the cover don't because the book's AMAZING!

NEW COVER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!Born of Fury Author Sherrilyn Kenyon

Can't say I've ever been a fan of any of Sherrilyn's book covers but I gotta say her writing makes up for it. So like the saying goes don't judge a book by it's cover.
But seriously can't wait for this book I still haven't read Born of Silence but I'm sure both books will be great because Sherrilyn does not know how to write a bad book.


Setting: Ichidian Universe

The war is on…

Counted among the fiercest Andarion warriors ever born, Hauk is one of the five founding members of the Sentella- an organization that has declared war on the League that rules the Ichidian universe with an iron fist and terrifies it with an army of well-trained assassins. Hauk’s enemies are legion, but he fears nothing and no one. He will do whatever it takes to survive and protect his Sentella brethren.

Sumi Antaxas is one of the best assassins the League has ever trained. In her world, failure is not an option and she has never met a target she couldn’t execute. So when she’s assigned Hauk, she believes it’ll be a quick and easy mission.

But nothing is ever as simple as it seems, and Hauk is far better trained and skilled than his dossier shows. More than that, as she pursues him, she stumbles upon the key that will bring down not only Hauk, but the entire Sentella organization.

In the race to report her information, she is overtaken by enemies out to end her as effectively as she intends to end Hauk. Now her only key to survival is the one man she’s been sent to kill. And Hauk doesn’t trust her at all.

The only question is, will he help her to live… or send her to her grave.

I love Gena Showalter she does not know how to write a bad book all her books I've read have been awesome including Wicked Night which is the first book in the series Angel of the Dark. For being the first book in the Angel of the Dark Series the book was pretty good there was somethings that bothered me but all in all I can't wait to read more about the Angel world and meet the rest of the characters. One thing that did bother me alot was how some of the characters seemed to much like the Lords of the Underworld.
