#COYER Review: Wake to Darkness (Brown and De Luca #2) – Maggie Shayne

*I received a free ARC of Wake to Darkness from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Wake to Darkness picks up a few months after the ending of Sleep with the Lights On, and the readers are brought right into the action, as Mason comes to see Rachel mere seconds before she goes live on television to talk about her newest self-help book. Mason needs Rachel’s help once more, and she needs him! But she will not let him know how much he affects her even after a while apart with no contact at all. Fast paced, Wake to Darkness is still dealing with a mysterious serial killer, but this time, the killer is going after […]

Review: All Our Yesterdays – Cristin Terrill

Review: All Our Yesterdays – Cristin Terrill

*I received a free ARC of All Our Yesterdays from Disney Book Group via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* All Our Yesterdays is a quite exciting science fiction / time travel thriller about Em and Finn, and the lengths they will go to in order to survive, and to change the past – or is that the future? In some ways, the story is quite confusing, as it goes away from the pat of many other time travel stories and the flash-backs aren’t always easy to get once there is a shift in the storyline. At the beginning, All Our Yesterday completely grabbed me, and I was delighted to read a time travel story that was so intricate. […]

Review: Panic (Rook and Ronin #3) – J.A. Huss

Review: Panic (Rook and Ronin #3) – J.A. Huss

In Panic, Rook starts her new show with Spencer, and Ford is tagging along as usual. Being away from Ronin is not easy, but she can finally start film school, and she has other people she can count on as friends. Her tutor is showing her some strange newspaper articles as he tries to make her doubt all three men who have become so important to her. When an ex also shows up to tell her she has to talk to an FBI agent to save his mother, she realizes this may very well have something to do with her past, rather with the past of her friends. Even I could feel the Panic at times while reading. Rook puts […]

Review: Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #1) – Lisa Renee Jones

Review: Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #1) – Lisa Renee Jones

*I received a free ARC of Escaping Reality from Julie Patra Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* I am completely blown away by Escaping Reality! A red-hot thriller/suspense novel with a great main character in Amy. She has no idea if there is anyone she can trust, and a secretive handler has just made her leave New York and her new life behind. At the airport, she finds the right locker, with a small carry-on, new ID and an address in Denver. Shockingly fast paced, there is never a dull moment, as Amy runs, and finds herself next to a very sexy and hot man on the plane. Escaping Reality has Amy on the run, a mysterious […]

Review: Backward Glass – David Lomax

Review: Backward Glass – David Lomax

*I received a free ARC of Backward Glass from Flux via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Backward Glass is a brilliant YA time travel novel, and it really made my day! The main character, Kenny, is pretty careful, but his travels to the past (and sometimes to the future) take him on such a wild adventure I was almost out of breath at times. I love reading about time travel, and I thought it was very well done in Backward Glass. Like, you can’t change what has happened, but you can still be the captain of your own life – that is very important to me on both counts. The characters in Backward Glass are all very well […]

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

*I received a free ARC of Getting Rowdy from Harlequin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Getting Rowdy is a sinfully delicious romantic mystery/suspense that I devoured in one day! Avery is a really good female character and Rowdy is smoking hot, kind of a womanizer but so protective of the people he cares about it’s impossible not to love him. At the beginning, I really didn’t think there was going to be much of a future for Avery and Rowdy, because they are so different. For Rowdy, a good night means trying to bed Avery, and when she refuses, he finds a replacement – for one night only. For Avery, a good night means having enough work, […]

Review: Found (Penny Black #1) – Stacey Wallace Benefiel

Review: Found (Penny Black #1) – Stacey Wallace Benefiel

*I received a free ARC of Found from Write Free via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Found is set in the same world as the Zellie Weiss series by the same author, but I do not think it is necessary to read those books in order to enjoy Found. Because I really did enjoy it, and I had no idea what this world was all about when I started reading. Penny has been alone for a long time – waking up in strange places is not something she pays all that much attention to, it has happened many times. During these dreams, she is using her hands and her mind to stop time, rewind events and then make […]

Review: Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) – Tahereh Mafi

Unravel Me picks up just after Shatter Me finished, and Juliette has a little bit of trouble fitting in. After being shunned for so long, and then in isolation for years, she feels as if everybody is just waiting for her to screw up so they can throw her out in the cold again. She can’t believe there is truly somewhere she can belong, and when Adam starts acting strangely, she thinks it is truly the beginning of the end. When Castle tells Juliette she has to take the first step, and make some friends, she wonders how he can be so smart, and yet so naive all at the same time. Adam is really happy to be at Omega […]

Review: Influential Magic (Crescent City Fae) – Deanna Chase

Review: Influential Magic (Crescent City Fae) – Deanna Chase

*I received a free ARC of Influential Magic from Bayou Moon Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Influential Magic is a very refreshing paranormal urban fantasy story! There are both fairies and vampires, but they are not exactly the same as they are in other stories. Willow has some strange powers, she can transform the essence of plants, which is one of the reasons her bakery is so successful. She also can tell if a vampire is near, and more importantly, when a vampire is near, it sucks out her energy. That is one part of her power she is trying to keep secret – just as she tried to keep one of her new cakes a […]

Review: Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling #12) – Nalini Singh

Review: Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling #12) – Nalini Singh

Heart of Obsidian may just be my favorite book in the Psy-Changeling series. I loved learning more about Kaleb, and Sahara was totally awesome as well. The overall plot of the series moved along very nicely as well, and we even found out who the Ghost is! The intricate relationships between some of the psy and the changeling packs, as well as the war with pure-psy continued, and there were quite a few things that caught me completely off guard. Heart of Obsidian starts really strong! With Kaleb kidnapping a woman out of a high security place, and for once, he actually brings someone to his home outside of Moscow. It is unclear at first why he takes the woman, […]
