Nate Hayes is a Replica.

The real Nate was viciously murdered, but thanks to Paxco’s groundbreaking human replication technology, a duplicate was created that holds all of the personality and the memories of the original. Or...almost all. Nate’s backup didn't extend to the days preceding his murder, leaving him searching for answers about who would kill him, and why. Now, after weeks spent attempting to solve his own murder with the help of his best friend and betrothed, Nadia Lake, Nate has found the answers he was seeking...and he doesn’t like what he’s discovered.

The original Nate was killed because he knew a secret that could change everything. Thanks to Nadia’s quick thinking, the two of them hold the cards now—or think they do.

Unfortunately, neither of them fully understands just how deep the conspiracy runs. 

Why the time hasn't come yet...
I don't know, just have't gotten around to reading it! But I just got a physical copy, so hopefully I'll read it soon! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Waiting on Wednesday #267, June 22nd

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!


Night and Day by Iris Johansen
Expected Publication: July 19th, 2016
From Goodreads:
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes the explosive third book in the latest Eve Duncan trilogy.

Iris Johansen's third book in her latest explosive trilogy starring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan takes readers on a high-energy adventure with Eve fighting to overcome the odds. Protecting Cara Delaney from the enemies who want her dead leads Eve to be their target. It will take everything she has to rescue Cara, and doing so will put that which is dearest to her at risk. Night and Day is the pulse-pounding race to a conclusion that will have readers on the edge of their seats. 
The Secrets She Kept by Brenda Novak
Expected Publication: July 26th, 2016
From Goodreads:
Exciting, emotional, intense. The thrilling follow-up to New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak's highly acclaimed The Secret Sister. The things that happen in families are always surprising and sometimes shocking! 

The rich and powerful Josephine Lazarow, matriarch of Fairham Island, is dead. The police say it's suicide, but Keith, her estranged son, doesn't believe it. 

Keith bears scars—both physical and emotional—from his childhood, but he's worked hard to overcome the past. After walking away from his mother and her controlling ways five years ago, he's built a new life in LA. He's also accumulated a fortune of his own. But as soon as he learns of his mother's death, he returns to Fairham. He feels he owes it to his grandfather to put the family empire together again—and he's determined to find his mother's killer. 

Problem is…coming home to Fairham puts him back in contact with Nancy Dellinger, the woman he hurt so badly when he left before. And digging that deep into his mother's final days and hours entails a very real risk. 

Because the person who killed her could be someone he loves…

A Reckless Promise by Kasey Michaels
Expected Publication: July 26th, 2016
From Goodreads:
London's Little Season has never been so scandalous 

It's the kind of vow often made on the battlefield. Darby Travers, Viscount Nailbourne, never imagines he'll have to honor it. Yet here she is on his doorstep—his late comrade's young daughter, and Darby's new ward. Worse, she comes with the most overprotective, mistrustful, bothersome chaperone—the child's aunt, Sadie Grace Boxer. Darby is quite sure that behind her lovely facade, the woman is guarding a secret. 

Sadie Grace faced many trials working in her brother's surgery, but none prepared her for the world she's thrust into with his passing. Navigating the ton, with its endless ball gowns and parade of parties, is difficult enough, but hiding the truth about her niece while the sophisticated viscount watches her every move proves nearly impossible—particularly when his searing gaze tempts her to bare all. But when her family's past catches up with her, she'll have to trust in Darby…no matter the cost to her heart. 

What the Dead Want by Norah Olson
Expected Publication: July 26th, 2016
From Goodreads:
16 -year-old Gretchen takes photographs to understand the world around her, a passion her mother Mona fostered and encouraged when she was still around. Since her mom disappeared years ago, Gretchen and her dad have lived on their own in New York City, haunted by Mona’s absence.

When Gretchen’s great aunt Esther calls unexpectedly to tell her that she has inherited the pre-Civil War mansion on her mother’s side of the family in upstate New York, Gretchen understands nothing except that her aunt needs her help. But what she finds there is beyond her imagination. The house is crumbling apart, filled with stacks of papers and journals from decades, even centuries past, and it’s crawling with rodents. It’s also full of secrets and a legacy of racism and violence so reprehensible that the ghosts of the past are exacting revenge on the living.

Somehow the mystery of Mona’s disappearance and the atrocities that happened on the land during the Civil War are inextricably intertwined, and it’s up to Gretchen to figure out how…before even more lives are lost. 

Yeah, yet another fantastic collection of books coming out in July! I've read all of them, and enjoyed all of them, and I hope you guys do, too! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Week 25 Reviews:
A Long, Long Sleep
No Life But This
Undone
OK, so I got  posts in 7 days, What about you guys? Happy reading!

So this week I want to read Body Shot, The Continent, Hanover House, Her Darkest Nightmare, Kojiki, Nervernight, One Was Lost, and The Replacement Crush.
The bestselling author of the Heller Brothers series stirs up a tempting cocktail of fun and seduction as a sexy SEAL-turned-bartender treats a buttoned-up scientist to a wild weekend . . . and a change of heart.

Former Navy SEAL Beck Whitcomb left a world of privilege to prove he could make his own way. Money, mansions, expensive cars—none of it could heal the loss of his older brother, or buy his parents' love. Now, after using his trust fund to open the Conquistadors tequila bar with his brothers-in-arms, Beck has it all: good friends, fine liquor, and hot hookups. When it comes to women, commitment's not his thing—until he gets a taste of the pretty professor who walks into his bar . . . and winds up in his bed.

Hayden Miles knows all too well that emotional decisions can lead to heartbreak, and nothing screams "bad decision" like a playboy bartender with inked biceps and a wicked smile. Still, their chemistry is off-the-charts explosive—and Hayden knows her chemistry. For once, this good girl longs to let loose. But is she willing to risk the pain to quench her thirst? With the promise of more on the table, Hayden's eager to believe . . . before she misses her shot.



For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually at war. Most citizens tour the Continent to see the spectacle and violence of battle—a thing long vanished in the Spire. For Vaela—a smart and talented apprentice cartographer—it is an opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.

But an idyllic aerial exploration is not to be had: the realities of war are made clear in a bloody battle seen from the heli-plane during the tour, leaving Vaela forever changed. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, she has no illusions about the true nature of the danger she faces. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.
THE HUNT FOR A SERIAL KILLER
Evelyn Talbot knows that a psychopath can look perfectly normal. She was only sixteen when her own boyfriend Jasper imprisoned and tortured her—and left her for dead. Now an eminent psychiatrist who specializes in the criminal mind, Evelyn is the force behind Hanover House, a maximum-security facility located in a small Alaskan town. Her job puts her at odds with Sergeant Amarok, who is convinced that Hanover is a threat to his community…even as his attraction to beautiful Evelyn threatens to tear his world apart.

BEGINS WITH AN ESCAPE FROM HER PAST
Then, just as the bitter Alaskan winter cuts both town and prison off from the outside world, the mutilated body of a local woman turns up. For Amarok, this is the final proof he needs: Hanover has to go. Evelyn, though, has reason to fear that the crime is a personal message to her—the first sign that the killer who haunts her dreams has found her again. . .and that the life she has so carefully rebuilt will never be the same…
In modern Tokyo, eighteen-year-old Keiko Yamada fights to unravel an unintelligible death poem her father left behind. Her only clues include a rambling note about powerful Japanese Spirits, gigantic, beast-like Guardians, and the cryptic words: Go to Japan in my place. Find the Gate. My camera will show you the way.

Determined to fulfil her father’s dying wish, Keiko buries her grief, leaves America, and heads to Tokyo’s Ginza in search of an answer. There, beneath the city’s glittering neon signs, her father’s death poem comes to life. Ancient spirits spring from the shadows. Chaos envelops the city, and as Keiko flees its burning streets, her guide, Yui Akiko, makes a stunning confession—that she, Yui, is one of a handful of Spirits left behind to defend the world.
In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic — the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires.

Revenge.
Damaged. Deceptive. Dangerous. Darling. Are they labels or a warning? The answer could cost Sera everything.

Murder, justice, and revenge were so not a part of the plan when Sera set out on her senior camping trip. After all, hiking through the woods is supposed to be safe and uneventful.

Then one morning the group wakes up groggy, confused, and with words scrawled on their wrists: Damaged. Deceptive. Dangerous. Darling. Their supplies? Destroyed. Half their group? Gone. Their chaperone? Unconscious. Worst of all, they find four dolls acting out a murder—dolls dressed just like them.

Suddenly it's clear; they're being hunted. And with the only positive word on her wrist, Sera falls under suspicion…
True love can't be strategized.

After book blogger Vivian Galdi’s longtime crush pretends their secret summer kissing sessions never happened, Vivian creates a list of safe crushes, determined to protect her heart.

But nerd-hot Dallas, the sweet new guy in town, sends the mission and Vivian’s zing meter into chaos. While designing software for the bookstore where Vivian works, Dallas wages a counter-mission.

Operation Replacement Crush is in full effect. And Dallas is determined to take her heart off the shelf.

Week 25 Review: Allegiance of Honor

From Goodreads:
The "unparalleled romantic adventure"* of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as a new dawn begins for the Psy-Changeling world... 

The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: Old enemies. New allies. Wary loners.

But a century of distrust and suspicion can't be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman's cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: A child who is both Psy…and changeling.

To find the lost, protect the vulnerable—and save Trinity—no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honor even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?

My Review:
Oh, oh, oh! I only just started reading this series, but I devoured it. And to have this book come out so soon after all that, was really great, to keep in mind all the things that were going on in in this world, with these characters! After 14 previous books, that was a lot!

In my mind, I was comparing this book to Dark Celebration by Christine Feehan, because they both catch up with the couples that we've gotten to know previously. This book was fluid, and didn't catch up with everybody, but there were developments in this world, so yeah, that was really great!

So much happened in this book. Like Naya's first shift. That was so cute and sweet! And the problems with Trinity being created so quickly-not knowing what sides people are on, and not having any kind of ruling body or rules really. Yeah. Oh, and Hawke implementing a plan to take down Ming by taking away his money and power, before going to kill him. And that it's a group effort!

It was sad with Zie Zen passed. But he left once the world was better, that he'd done what he and Sunny had wanted to have done. It was sad, but it was his time. I want to know more about Clara Alvarez, head of Haven where Samuel Rain is currently! After all, she's part of the solution in healing the PsyNet!

Then there was the architect of the Consortium, we got his POV in a few sections, and it was a mystery who he/she was. The way the thoughts were, I was thinking maybe it was Ming, or Pax Mitchell-what with his possible attempt at kidnapping Naya, whether it was him or if it was set up like he did it, since both of them are not the good guys, or it could be another character that we know, or an unknown! And I can't wait to find out!

Some of the main things going on in this book was the attempted kidnapping of Naya. That the Psy net was still dying, but more slowly now. And the disappearances of BlackSea members, specifically Leila Savea. This lead to things like learning a bit about Ps-Psy, finally-Faith's brother, Tanique, who I really hope gets a book, and soon!

In this book, the in-between stuff, was Zavier's letters to Nina. They showed him and his past, and his history with meeting Jude, and then Kaleb, and how he met the two of them. And since this story took place while Zavier was looking for Nina, well, yeah. that was great! So sweet, and I was so happy for the two of them!

The pupcubs were born! Loved how Mercy, Riley, Tamsyn and Lara tricked everyone into betting on quads when it was triplets-Isabelle first, a leopard, and her brothers Acton and Michael, wolves. Which is a pretty good show of the dominance between Mercy and Riley!

Another thing that was just so freaking sweet, is that Kaleb was the one that saved Annie from the bullet train. So her son is named Rowan Kaleb Quinn. And that was just freaking adorable, and I loved it so much!

Loved where the book left off, everything that happened, and yeah, I can't wait for the Wild Embrace, and then the next full length novel in this series!

Week 25 Reviews: Sleep No More, Taking Eve, Hunting Eve, Silencing Eve




From Goodreads:
One woman held captive for decades… 
Another one freed by the truth… 

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan knows what it's like to be haunted by the past.  For years after her daughter Bonnie was stolen from her, she fought for closure.  But now as she's striving to begin anew, she can't shake the feeling that something terrible is about to happen—or maybe already has.  When her mother, Sandra, asks for help in finding a missing friend named Beth Avery, Eve is sure that she's hiding something.  It’s odd that Sandra would get involved at all, and the fact that she adamantly refuses to go to the police for help reinforces Eve’s suspicions that something is very wrong.

Eve learns that Beth has been locked away in a mental hospital for years, which makes it even harder to understand how she could have disappeared. As Sandra reluctantly reveals small pieces of the truth about Beth's identity, Eve is shocked to discover that their lives are strangely entwined, and Beth's disappearance now puts them all in grave danger.

 Desperate, Eve enlists a secret weapon to pick up Beth's trail:  rogue profiler, Kendra Michaels. With an uncanny ability to detect clues and solve puzzles, Kendra begins to uncover the bizarre circumstances of Beth's escape from what should have been the safety of her hospital room. Beth is on the run, and as her mind clears--detoxing from the drugs that have held her prisoner--she begins to see the threads of a twisted plot within the powerful Avery family, threatening to destroy Beth and anyone else who might jeopardize the high-stakes game that is already in play.

From Goodreads:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen is back with the first book in a chilling new Eve Duncan trilogy that asks the question: will Eve survive what lies ahead?

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan's mission is to bring closure to the families whose loved ones have vanished.  She knows their anguish—her own beloved daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old.  It is only recently that this mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace.  Now, Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers that Eve always longed for.  His twenty-five-year old son may or may not be dead and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence.  But he cannot go to the police for answers without risking his own secrets and dark past, so instead he chooses a bold step to find the truth—a truth that takes Eve down a twisted path of madness and evil and into the darkest heart of her own history.  Doane needs Eve Duncan's skills and he'll do anything to get them. 

Even if it means taking Eve. 

From Goodreads:
In the second book of Iris Johansen's heart-stopping new Eve Duncan trilogy, the stakes get higher. Eve Duncan is on the run. Kidnapped by Jim Doane, a mysterious man who wants her to complete a sinister forensic sculpture, she now has no time to savor the victory of escaping from him. He's back on her trail and closing in fast. Doane desperately needs Eve's skill to reconstruct the skull of his son -- a sick and twisted killer who still holds Doane in thrall from beyond the grave. The CIA has its own reasons for tracking Eve's nemesis. And those closest to Eve -- Joe Quinn and Jane MacGuire -- are doing everything in their power to rescue her, while a hired gun named Lee Zander is on a personal mission to eliminate Doane.

Is she dead or alive? That is the question on everybody's lips. Eve appears to have been killed -- that's what everyone attending her funeral thinks, at least. But not even some of her top-brass colleagues know for sure whether her death is a hoax -- a way to ensnare her brutal captor, Jim Doane, once or for all. But even if Eve really is still alive, how much longer can this charade continue before she falls into even greater danger? CIA agent Catherine Ling will waste no time trying to find out. Years ago, Eve risked everything to help Catherine find her missing son. Now Catherine, along with Eve's beloved Joe Quinn and Jane MacGuire, will go to the ends of the earth to save her…

My first review of Sleep No MoreTaking EveHunting EveSilencing Eve
My Review:
I just loved reading these books again, reading them with the rest of the series! This is where Eve learns more about her family-that she has a sister, and who her father is. And of course there's threats, because it wouldn't be an Iris Johansen book without them!

You have to feel bad for Beth-she was shuffled off to the poor, quiet side of the family, with visits from her father, but mostly kept out of the public's view. And then spent most of her life heavily medicated with a fake mental illness. But it doesn't stay that way!

I can see where Doane was coming from. If Bonnie had been evil like Doane's son, Eve might have been put down a similar path as Doane. But Bonnie was good, basically the opposite. And it was really great to see those conflicting sides!

A lot happened in these books, we were introduced to new characters, Jane had romantic interests pushing for her to choose, and then after she did, he died. And that was hard. But having kinda read the ending of Night and Day, well yeah, I'll leave that there!

Such a fantastic series, so enjoyable, and I can't wait to read more! I'm now going to be reading new stuff! Yeah!

Week 25 Review: The Long Game

From Goodreads:
Tess Kendrick, teen fixer extraordinaire, returns in a pulse-pounding thriller about a deadly conspiracy at the heart of Washington.

For Tess Kendrick, a junior at the elite Hardwicke School in Washington D.C., fixing runs in the family. But Tess has another legacy, too, one that involves power and the making of political dynasties. When Tess is asked to run a classmate's campaign for student council, she agrees. But when the candidates are children of politicians, even a high school election can involve life-shattering secrets.

Meanwhile, Tess's guardian has also taken on an impossible case, as a terrorist attack calls into doubt who can--and cannot--be trusted on Capitol Hill. Tess knows better than most that power is currency in D.C., but she's about to discover first-hand that power always comes with a price.

Perfect for fans of Harlan Coben and Ally Carter, the second book in this thrilling series will leave readers breathless.

My Review:
I just loved reading this book! I was meaning to read it in another two weeks, or that so the review would post on the 2nd. But I got this book, and I just couldn't help myself, I had to read it! I was just sucked in and just devoured it!

Where things left off in the first book, she was suspecting her grandfather as the 4th member of the whole conspiracy.  This book doesn't end with that thought-because she found out who actually was the 4th member.

There was a lot going on. There was the president's son coming in with his girlfriend being a terrorist-and that she'd been with him because of who he was. And that she became pregnant? Oh, and that he wasn't the president's son, but her grandfathers. Which means that the baby is Tess's cousin. Yeah.

There was the presidential campaigns-those of the students and those of the government. And how those were all derailed by the president of the United States being shot. Oh, and a student being killed and Tess finding him while he was dying. And the whole terrorists taking over the school thing. That was pretty violent! And Henry, oh! That hurt!

So many twists and turns and revelations, and yeah, I need a 3rd book, I need more of these characters!
