The Forgotten Fairytales: Review

From Goodreads:
A psychotic, couture-clad, shoe obsessed Princess.
A not-so-charming, alcoholic Prince.
A hot Big Bad Wolf that she absolutely cannot fall for—no matter how well he kisses.

Seventeen-year-old, Norah Hart had no clue when she walked into boarding school, she'd be surrounded by reincarnated fairy tale characters, let alone learn she was one herself. In a world where the lines between good and evil blur, Norah struggles to find her place. When her actions throw off the balance of the fairy tale world and happily ever afters, enemies surface, ready to destroy her at any cost.

My Review:
This book was pretty fantastic! It took fairy tales-a lot of them now also Disney movies-and turned them on their sides, and it was just really enjoyable to read! The world was fantastic, and I'm really glad that this is a series!

Norah has led a pretty interesting life. Her dad has taught all over, and her mom left the family. And then she's going to her mom's old school. And yeah, things aren't easy, because of the other students and yeah, it was awesome to watch her deal with it all!

I really enjoyed how she messed with the line of good and evil, and how the consequences rippled. They needed a shake up, and they got one! But then she was in the line of fire, and that wasn't very easy to navigate!

The way that things turned out, yeah, it was something of a mixed bag. This is a series, and I enjoyed how it all came together and ended, but yeah, there are still loose ends that'll hopefully be picked up in the next book!

Really enjoyed this book, it was so enjoyable, and I would love to read more!

OK, so I got  posts in 7 days, What about you guys? Happy reading!

So this week I want to read One Lucky Vampire, Vampire Most Wanted, The Immortal Who Loved Me, About a Vampire, Runaway Vampire, Immortal Nights, Be Still My Vampire Heart, The Undead Next Door, Carrie Pilby, The Continent, Crushed, Crossed, Faithless, A Love Untamed, and Touch of the Demon.

Luck be a vampire tonight . . .

When Nicole Phillips agreed to hire a housekeeper, she pictured someone a little frumpy and almost certainly female. Instead, she gets gorgeous, unmistakably male Jake Colson. The man is proving indispensable in the kitchen—and everywhere else. Except Jake might not be a mortal man at all.

. . . and every night

Who wouldn't want to be a tall, dark, powerful vampire? Jake, for one. He's barely had time to adjust to his new state before he's roped into a family favor. Still, secretly playing bodyguard to sweet, sexy Nicole is turning out to be the wildest ride of his life. First he'll put a stop to whoever's targeting her. Then he'll prove that this kind of love, and luck, happens only once in an eternity.
For Basha Argeneau, anything is better than facing her estranged family. Even hiding out in sweltering southern California. But when a sexy immortal in black shows up determined to bring her back to the clan, she'll do anything to keep far, far away from the past she can't outrun.

Marcus Notte isn't here to play games—especially not with someone as crazy as the infamous blonde. Asked by Lucian Argeneau to bring her back for questioning, Marcus is determined to carry out Lucian's request—no matter how the seductive little mind-reading vamp feels about it.

Basha doesn't mind fighting fire with fire, especially with a hot immortal involved. But if he wants to take her away, he'll have to catch her first . . .
A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake. The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas.

Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever . . .
In New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands' new Argeneau novel, a vampire accustomed to seducing every woman he meets finds the one determined to resist him . . .

With immortal good looks and scorching charisma, Justin Bricker has yet to meet a woman he can't win over. His potential life mate should be no different. But instead of falling into his bed, Holly Bosley runs away and ends up mortally wounded. To save her, he has to turn her. And then Bricker learns the shocking truth: Holly's already married.

Holly wakes up with a bump on her head, a craving for blood, and a sexy stranger who insists they belong together. She needs Bricker's help to control her new abilities, even as she tries to resist his relentless seduction. Choosing between the world she knows and the eternity he offers is impossible. But Justin is fighting for his life mate—maybe even his life—and he'll break every rule to do it . . .
The latest entry in the sizzling paranormal vampire series featuring the Argeneau family - no one does wickedly funny and irresistibly steamy like Lynsay Sands!

Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn't expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full-body shock he feels whenever he's near the vehicle's driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate.

The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn't feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn't believe it. But now that the men who took Dante's twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an immortal who's the very definition of a perfect stranger.
In a sizzling new argeneau novel from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands, an impulsive rescue pairs a sexy immortal with the woman made to be his for eternity

Abigail Forsythe’s life hasn’t been easy lately. Still, if there’s one thing guaranteed to take her mind off an empty bank account and abandoned dreams, it’s a naked man locked in a plane’s cargo hold. A very big, incredibly gorgeous naked man. And when instinct prompts her to free him, Abigail must rely on this stranger for survival . . . a stranger who leaves her thrumming with need every time they touch.

Tomasso Notte knows he’s found his life mate in Abigail. Now he just has to hold on to her. They’re miles from civilization, hunted by his kidnappers. Abigail has no idea of Tomasso’s abilities, or of how intensely pleasurable their unique connection can be. But he’s about to show her, beginning with one wild, hot, immortal night . . .
If it was still beating. Angus MacKay has been undead for almost five hundred years and it's not often something, or someone, surprises him. Until Emma Wallace. The sight of this luscious agent from the CIA's elite Stake-Out team was enough to stop Angus in his tracks. But then he discovers that she's a vampire slayer, intent on killing the "monsters" who killed her parents. And it's Angus's job to stop her.

The only good vampire is a dead vampire. It's been Emma's motto since she committed her life to the destruction of these things. Now Angus MacKay wants to convince her differently.

Sure, he's a sexy Highland warrior who seems to have stepped off the cover of a romance novel, complete with brogue, kilt, and sword, but he's also one of them. And it's her job to kill him.

The war is on, but will it end in the destruction of one or both of them . . . or in total surrender to a passion for the ages?
Three signs that something is very different with your mew man:

1. He sleeps all day . . . which would be annoying except he's so attentive at night.

2. He's attacked by sword-wielding assailants, yet insists he can handle it on his own.

3. He never seems to age.

Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive . . . so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.
Carrie Pilby's To-Do List:

1. List 10 things you love (and do them!)
2. Join a club (and talk to people!)
3. Go on a date (with someone you actually like!)
4. Tell someone you care (your therapist doesn't count!)
5. Celebrate New Year's (with other people!)

Seriously? Carrie would rather stay in bed than deal with the immoral, sex-obsessed hypocrites who seem to overrun her hometown, New York City. She's sick of trying to be like everybody else. She isn't! But when her own therapist gives her a five-point plan to change her social-outcast status, Carrie takes a hard look at herself—and agrees to try.

Suddenly the world doesn't seem so bad. But is prodigy Carrie willing to dumb things down just to fit in?
Meda Melange has officially hung up her monstrous mantle and planted her feet firmly on the holy and righteous path of a Crusader-in-training. Or, at least, she's willing to give it a shot. It helps that the Crusaders are the only thing standing between her and the demon hordes who want her dead.

After all, everyone knows a good girl's greatest weakness is a bad boy.The problem is, the only people less convinced than Meda of her new-found role as Good Girl are the very Crusaders she's trying to join. So when a devilishly handsome half-demon boy offers escape, how's a girl supposed to say "no?"
War is here.

Full-scale war has erupted between the Crusaders and demons and even Chi has to admit isn’t going well. Like any sensible rat, Meda’s eager to abandon the sinking ship but, unfortunately, her friends aren't nearly as pragmatic. Instead, Meda’s forced to try to keep them all alive until the dust settles.

As the Crusaders take more and more drastic measures, the tables turn and Meda suddenly finds herself in the role of voice of sanity. No one is more horrified than she is. When old enemies reappear as new allies and old friends become new enemies Meda has to decide—again—whose side she’s really on.

And then the Crusaders decide that Meda should go to Hell. Literally.

Can’t a monster ever catch a break?
The victim was buried alive in the Georgia woods–then killed in a horrifying fashion. When Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver stumble upon the body, both become consumed with finding out who killed the pretty young woman. For them, a harrowing journey begins, one that will test their own turbulent relationship and draw dozens of life into the case.

For as Jeffrey and Sara move further down a trail of shocking surprises and hidden passions, neither is prepared for the most stunning discovery of all: the identity of a killer who is more evil and dangerous than anyone could have guessed.
The newest member of the elite Feral Warriors brotherhood, Fox is eager to prove himself on the frontlines of battle against the Daemons. When paired with the legendary Ilina warrior, Melisande, he expects the fierce beauty to quickly fall under the spell of his quite considerable charm. Instead, he finds himself spellbound by a woman who's his match in every way.

Beneath Melisande's brittle exterior lies centuries of pain and a violent hatred of all shape-shifters—a hatred that slowly crumbles after they're caught in a deadly and cunning Mage trap and she glimpses a surprising depth in her far-too-seductive partner. Their survival demands unconditional trust—and their salvation surrender to a wild, untamed love.
Kara Gillian is in Seriously Deep Trouble.

She's used to summoning supernatural creatures from the demon realm to our world, but now she's the one who's been summoned. Kara is the prisoner of the demonic Lord Mzatal, but quickly discovers that she's far more than a mere hostage. He has his own plans to use Kara and keep her from Rhyzkahl-the demonic lord she is sworn to serve. However, waiting for rescue has never been Kara's style, and she has no intention of being a pawn in someone else's game.

Yet intrigue and treachery run rampant amongst all lords, and Kara is hard pressed to keep her wits about her. Her abilities as a homicide detective are put the the test as she seeks the truth about FBI Agent Ryan Kristoff, Rhyzkahl, and herself. But, the answers she finds only raise more questions. She soon discovers that she has her own history in the demon realm-one that goes back farther than she could have ever imagined. But that history may yet spell her doom as she’s faced with a peril beyond mortal comprehension.

She’s going to need all the strength and tenacity she’s developed as a cop and a summoner, or the hell she endures may well last forever.

Week 39 Review: The Women in the Walls

From Goodreads:
Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They're inseparable--a family.

When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she's ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother's voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations. 

My Review:
I really enjoyed reading this book! It was totally creepy, but it was just so enjoyable! Loved it, and yeah, I would really love a sequel, because that would solve my few complaints! Otherwise, this book was really fantastic!

There were multiple layers to this book. There was the Acosta family rules and presentation. There was the wonder of if they were going crazy. And there was the family history, and the events in the past that were coming out to play with the present! It was fantastic!

You have to feel bad for Lucy, while she's privileged in money and family status, well, she doesn't live that great of a life, with not a lot of love, a lot of loss, and a lot of crushing expectations that were hard for her to deal with. And then all of this happened!

That ending was just evil! It wasn't a happy ending, or a victorious one. Things didn't work out for them. And then things weren't fully explained, like what the heck was going on with the club. Or what those ladies were, that they could do what they did.

This was a horror book, and things didn't end happily. I really enjoyed reading it, and I hope you guys do, too!

Week 39 Review: How to Save the World

From Goodreads:
In the third book of Lexie Dunne's action-packed Superheroes Anonymous series, Hostage Girl returns once again to save the world.

Gail Godwin—once so famous for being kidnapped by supervillains, the media still calls her Hostage Girl—is done with superheroes and their shadowy schemes. She's got a cute boyfriend, a great roommate, and she's even returned to her old job. For the first time in years, life is exactly what she wants it to be.

But when a figure from her past resurfaces, he brings with him a plague that changes the game for every superhero and villain out there. Now Gail must team up with both friend and foe to help save the world she thought she had left behind. 

My Review:
I just loved reading this book! I devoured it, and it was just fantastic! I've loved this series from the beginning, and this book was no different! Gail was just as quick with the snappy retorts, and a life that just doesn't let up with the bumps on the road! Loved it!

There were periods with a lot of action, and then there was the waiting game for Gail in this book. She either didn't get really any breathing room, or she had too much of it. And while she's used to that from her Hostage Girl days, now that she's on the superheros side of it all, yeah.

I really enjoyed the developments in this book! Like learning the purpose of the powers that Gail has. And the game changer in the super world. I also really enjoyed Guy's story arc in this story, it wasn't what I expected, though I think I should have, but yeah, really enjoyed it!

I really hope that there's a 4th book. There's Jeremy and the ending of this book. And then there's Petra, and the search for her. There's probably more, like I had no idea, after reading Supervillians Anonymous that this book could happen, so yeah, there's that!

Loved reading this book so much, it was just so great, and I really hope we get a book 4!

Week 39 Review: Ecstasy Untamed

From Goodreads:
They are called Feral Warriors—-an elite band of immortals who can change shape at will. Sworn to rid the world of evil, consumed by sorcery and seduction, their wild natures are primed for release . . .

Shattered by recent nightmarish events, Hawke feels his bond with his animal spirit weakening—and once it breaks, he’s finished. The arrival of Faith sends his life spinning even further out of control, for although she delights him and enflames his deepest primal passions, she’s promised to Maxim, the newest Feral Warrior.

Faith is drawn to Hawke from the start, but Maxim holds her in his thrall and has secretly bent her to his malevolent will. Though gravely damaged, Hawke is the only one who can end Faith’s slavery and protect the Feral Warriors from Maxim’s evil designs. But first they both must embrace the wild . . . and surrender body and soul to a forbidden, all-consuming ecstasy.

My Review:
Another really fantastic book in this series! Like the fact that the seventeen were freed from the spirit trap and marked new warriors! That was really great! But yeah, things weren't what they seemed, and I just loved reading it!

This book was set up a bit in the previous book, with Hawke's narration slipped in here and there. And now that he got his own story, yeah, that was so great to read! But between his bond with his animal being destroyed, and Faith to be mated with another Feral warrior, yeah.

I knew there was something bad about Maxim, besides the fact that they synopsis says that his designs are evil. Because yeah, there was something about the voice saying that she belonged to him, and that she didn't actually know him. And then when he hurt her...that wasn't fun to read!

There were a lot of fears in this book, of leaving behind loved ones, of losing control, of being one of the bad guys. But they worked together, and this world became richer all around, and things worked out for them! Of course, there's still much to deal with for future books!

Loved reading this book, and I can't wait to read more!

Week 39 Review: Wild Embrace

From Goodreads:
The "alpha author of paranormal romance"* presents a stunningly sensual collection of four all-new Psy-Changeling novellas, in which taboos are broken, boundaries are crossed, and instincts prove irresistible...

Echo of Silence 
In a deep-sea station, Tazia Nerif has found her life's work as an engineer, keeping things running smoothly. But she wants nothing more than to break down the barrier of silence between her and her telekinetic Psy station commander...

Dorian 
A changeling who can never shift lives a life of quiet frustration—until he learns how to let his leopard come out and play...

Partners in Persuasion 
Still raw from being burned by a dominant female, wolf changeling Felix will never again risk being a plaything. But for dominant leopard Dezi, he's the most fascinating man she's ever met. She just has to convince this gun-shy wolf that he can trust the dangerous cat who wants to take a slow, sexy bite out of him…

Flirtation of Fate 
Seven years ago, Kenji broke Garnet's heart. Now the wolf packmates have to investigate the shocking murder of one of their own. And the more Kenji sees of the woman Garnet has become, the deeper he begins to fall once more. But even his primal instincts are no match for the dark secret he carries...

My Review:
Reading these stories were so fantastic! We got a more in depth look at this series, and that was just so great! Like, Echo of Silence, that's the one couple that was mentioned in Allegiance of Honor that was helping the PysNet, so it was great to have their story!

These are characters that haven't had a lot of screen time in the series, well, besides Dorian, and that was a story over the course of years, and yeah, I was just smiling after he was able to shift! And yeah, it was great to have their stories!

Partners in Persuasion had the first dominate female and submissive male! So that was a really great story to read, because yeah, it helps add so much to this world! I really enjoyed how everything worked out that they could be happy!

Flirtation of Fate, that story hurt. It was the longest, I believe, and yeah, it had a murder mystery, and a romance with a secret! And both those hurt, that the one guy would do what he did. And that Kenji has a very small chance of becoming a biological father. Yeah.

Really fantastic to read this book, and now I can't wait for Silver's story!

Week 39 Review: Sins of the Demon

From Goodreads:
Louisiana homicide detective Kara Gillian is doing her best to cope with everything that's happened to her over the past year, all while s continuing to hone her skills as a demon summoner. But lately she's beginning to wonder if there's a little too much demon in her world. She has a demon for a roommate, the demonic lord Rhyzkahl is still interested in her for reasons she can't fathom, and now someone in the demon realm is trying to summon her. And there's no way that can end well.

Meanwhile, people who've hurt Kara in the past are dropping dead. Kara is desperate to find the reasons for the deaths to clear her own name, but when she realizes there's an arcane pattern to the deaths, she knows that both the human and the demon worlds may be at risk unless she finds out who's behind it all. She's in a race against the clock and in a battle for her life that just may take her to hell and back.

My Review:
Loved reading this book! This series has been really fantastic, and I can't wait to read more! There was quite a bit going on in this book-the people dying, Rhyzkahl and his strange ways, Ryan actually being the Demon Lord that her grandmother was trying to summon...yeah. A lot going on!

This was the book where we learned more about Kara's past. She's mentioned bits and pieces, but this was more in depth, that it was connected to what was going on now...yeah. That just added some layers to this story! Loved it!

That ending was just pure evil! Between who the bad guys were (because that kinda hurt!) the mention that her dad shouldn't have died in the accident, and what it meant-that she would be summoned because she had to save their world...yeah. And that last scene, just an evil cliffhanger!

One last thing that was going on, and that ended with a cliffhanger, is those dreams that Kara was having, that might have been memories, of the demon's world, of a place that seemed familiar. And yeah, I'm kinda wondering if she's the one that was stolen from Rhyzhakl and destroyed, as was mentioned. Because that would be interesting!

Loved this book, and I can't read Touch of the Demon soon enough!

Week 39 Reviews: How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire, Vamps and the City, A Very Vampy Christmas



From Goodreads:
So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lop–sided eater for all eternity.


Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either...After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them is immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman's fang? And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her...

From Goodreads:
Who says a vamp can't have it all?

Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super–sexy and live contestant named Austin...


But Darcy doesn't know the worst of it. Austin Erickson is actually a vampire slayer! And he's got his eye on the show's leggy blond director. Only problem is, he's never wanted any woman—living or dead—as badly. But if he wins her heart, will he lose his soul? And if it means an eternity of hot, passionate loving with Darcy, does that really matter anyway? 

From Goodreads:
Maggie O'Brien is thrilled when she lands a starring role on the Digital Vampire Network's hottest soap opera, As the Vampire Turns. Doesn't hurt that her leading man is Don Orlando de Corazon, the greatest lover in the vampire world! But who is Don Orlando really? Nobody knows, not even Don Orlando. As the couple sets out in search of his mysterious past, "home for the holidays" takes on a new meaning when the recently-turned vamp discovers his own Christmas miracle. 

My Review:
Oh, these books were just fantastic to read! While I enjoyed Millionaire Vampire better then City, they all were really great to read! It's just that Millionaire Vampire felt bigger than City, you know? Bigger stakes, bigger, more important characters. Yeah.

These books were pretty darned hilarious! Like breaking off one of your fangs biting into a blow up toy to be a vampire biting, but not into a human. Yeah. That was pretty funny! Or having a contest to judge the sexiest man alive, but hoping that he'd be a vampire. Yeah.

I really felt bad for Shanna. First her family basically abandons her in a private school, then her friend is killed in front of her, and she has to go into witness protection. But now she has a bad reaction to blood, but she's a dentist. Yeah. And then Roman comes into her life! Really enjoyed reading about their romance!

The details of this world, well, we didn't get much on the origins of vampires, just how they can make more, and some of the rules. And those were played with a bit in these books, as science improves their lives! I love series that develop like this!

It was fantastic to read these books, and I can't wait to read more!
