Publisher: Amazon Digital Services
Buy the Book: Amazon
Book Blurb: After escaping the faeries that held her prisoner in OtherworldLee Capren has made a new life for herself. When she’s not slinging spells with her monster-wrangling roommate, Filo, or honing her newfound magical abilities with her boyfriend, Nasser, she’s working in a shop that caters to Bridgestone City’s magical crowd. It’s not exactly a normal life… but it’s hers.

Everything changes when three strangers arrive with a desperate plea for help and a connection to Filo’s cruel former masters. Lee and her friends are soon swept up in the strangers’ quest to break a curse that plagues their island home.
Unraveling the secret of the curse will take them from an island where merfolk swim in the coves to a hidden city beneath the streets of Seattle and beyond. As the danger grows, relationships are tested, new ones are forged, and in the face of impossible choices, Lee learns the hardest lesson of all: Where there is love, there is also heartbreak.
With time running out and lives on the line, it becomes clear that failure could cost their lives—and success could cost them everything else.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


As a child, I wanted to be an Egyptologist—but when my fear of ancient Egyptian curses got the better of me, I turned to storytelling instead. An unrepentant nerd, I still play an N64, and I could probably teach a whole class about Pokémon. I worry about the zombie apocalypse every day, I firmly believe that librarians are the noblest people in the world, and I consider Dr Pepper to be the elixir of life.

I'm currently a 20-year-old journalism major, author of the Amazon-bestseller Flicker and former Managing Editor of the North Idaho College Sentinel. I'm also a member of the Northwest Independent Writers Association and the editor of NIWA's 2013 speculative fiction anthology.

My Thoughts: This cover is very similar to the first but at the same time it's different. I really love that hair it gives it this sort of... magical feel and it's so flowing and bright and red and gorgeous.

Synopsis: With one look, I’m his . . .

With one touch, he’s mine . . .

With one kiss, it changes everything between us . . .

I’ve been famous since I can remember. Singing, acting, dancing—I’ve done it all. The tabloids cover my every move, but I don’t want that anymore. I want to be normal, whatever that is.

When I leave Hollywood for college in Vermont, I’m on my own for the first time in my life. This is my chance to figure out who I am and what I want in life.

But it’s a lot harder than I expected. I can’t escape my image. Classes are difficult, and I’m struggling. And then there’s Caleb Fox.

Sexy, intriguing Caleb Fox.

Caleb is the one man who doesn’t want to use me. He breaks down my walls. He challenges me. He wants me. And I just don’t know if I can give him the same—or if he’ll stick around when he finds out my shameful secret that the tabloids haven’t managed to uncover.

Dating him is risky enough, but loving him could break me.

My Review: I'm going to comment first on the cover. Because wow that cover is beautiful and deserves to be commented on. It's fabulous!! That's actually what first attracted me to this book. This book did not go the way I thought it would at all. I loved it. Hailey was a bit lost. In almost every aspect. She wasn't sure what she wanted to do with her life. But she wasn't exactly looking for Caleb. And boy Caleb she gets. Caleb is so hot and sweet and understanding it's heartwarming. And he's honest. Which is very important. I loved that from the beginning he was so intrigued by Hailey that he wouldn't take no for an answer. There at the end? Um.... that is a huge WTF. Well for me. I'm not going to spoil but Hailey has this big dark secret from her past. I never would have guessed that I promise you. Once the secret comes out and Caleb.... sigh. Yeah Caleb.

DARKER DAYS by Jus Accardo



Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...

When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.

Seven deadly ones, in fact.

They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...

There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.

CHAOS by Christine O’Neil



My name is Maggie Raynard. After sixteen years being just plain me, suddenly I can kill people when I lose my temper. Turns out I'm a semi-god, descended from Aphrodite. Sounds cool in theory, but when I accidentally put my ex-boyfriend in a coma, things go downhill pretty fast.

Now some new guy named Mac Finnegan has made it his mission in life to continually piss me off. I'm stuck learning how to use my new powers while also dealing with regular high school problems, and with this---annoying and super-hot---guy all up in my business, I'm about to flip out.

But it gets worse. I just learned there's this council for semis that wants me dead. They think I'm bad to the bone and when my ex suddenly dies, it's like everyone is determined to take me out. Mac might turn out to be my only salvation, but he's got secrets of his own---that may just kill us both.

Married in the morning…

Professional heartbreaker Mike Worth thrived on the chase—and dancer Morgan Collins represented the ultimate prize.

So how did he let one drunken Vegas night end with I do instead of hell no?

Morgan’s life revolved around her career and she had no intention of letting a man interfere—even if Mike made her question all her rules about love. At his urging, she reluctantly agreed to give their spur-of–moment marriage a chance. But once their trial-honeymoon ended, would she choose to follow the dance and leave her unforgettable husband behind?

Remembering Joy by Jenni Moen—Book Blitz



Remembering Joy by Jenni Moen
Release Date: 06/07/13

Book Blurb:
Alexis doesn’t believe in fairytales. She knows first hand that life can turn on a dime – that one stupid mistake can shatter dreams and irrevocably shape the future. Even though her memory of that day is hazy, she has spent the last ten years trying to put it behind her and focus on the future.

Armed with the knowledge that her career will be her only legacy, Alexis works night and day to prove that she is more than just her last name. It’s not only that she doesn’t have time for love – she doesn’t have the heart for it. After all, there’s no point in starting something that you can’t finish.

However, when she meets Adam, she’s drawn to him in a way even she can’t deny. He is dark and brooding and strangely charming. He’s the perfect distraction from the mundane life she’s created for herself. And, as if fate is pushing them together, he seems to be around every corner. It’s enough to almost make her entirely forget about her past and take a chance.

Unfortunately, Adam’s memory isn’t hazy . . . not in the least. And, what she doesn’t remember, he can’t forget.

*Mature New Adult/Adult novel – contains adult situations and sexuality and is suited for ages 18 and up*

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry



Release Date: July 1, 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen 
Series: Pushing the Limits #1
Characters: Echo Emerson, Noah Hutchins
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 416
Format: Hardcover
Source: Friend
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

My Review: This book was so frigging intense I cannot get over this omigosh I think I'll hyperventilate! *takes a deep breath* Okay. So. Echo. My God that poor chick and all her scars. This book was so dramatic! I literally spent the whole weekend cooped up reading this and then Dare You To and Katie couldn't have done a more fantastic job writing these two books. But right now let's focus on this one first. Echo has gone through some really bad shit and the worst part is she can't even remember exactly what happened. She's working on it but it's incredibly hard for her and no one wants to spill the beans. She meets Noah, HOT, bad-boy Noah, and she's attracted to him and she doesn't even know how to properly handle it. The book was so... real.  The way they kept getting closer to each other and I loved how they didn't just suddenly want each other and decided to be together. They worked up to it and talked before jumping into things. I liked how Noah was so understanding of her situation and how he wasn't afraid of accepting all her, scars and all. She was there for Noah as well. Even if Noah was hard-headed.
Anyway, I LOVED this book a whole lot. I started it on Friday and went to bed at 4:30am reading and I cried buckets and I just oh God my heart squeezed so bad. I sobbed so bad. Then I awoke at 9am to finish reading. And had breakfast then jumped head-first into book 2. So yes, if you have not read this book, this series you are missing out on some fantastic stories.

Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid



Release Date: March 13, 2013
Publisher: Caped Publishing
Series: Knitting in the City #1
Characters: Janie Morris, Quinn Sullivan
Age Group: Adult Romance
Pages: 402
Format: Kindle
Source: Bookstore
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn't know how to knit.

After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can't refuse.

My Review: I adored this book. I read it quite a while ago and I am still like awaiting the second one. I'll have to Google the series and author later. Anyway, Janie Morris is incredibly smart and knows a whole bunch of trivial facts, which I found incredibly cool. I wish I knew all that trivia! She sucks at human interaction though. Like she gets all nervous and stuff, especially around Quinn. Quinn is attracted to her and she does not know how to handle it or how to interact with him. She's afraid of screwing everything up and his thinking she's strange because of all the random facts constantly popping out of her mouth. I learned a lot of cool stuff in this book and I loved how Quinn, in his own way, was also really sucky at interaction. They helped each other get through the awkward stage of not knowing hot to proceed and I found that very endearing. Quinn is a total badass and Janie is swooning all over the place because of it and it was just so much fun!

Book Blurb: When Ivy Callahan returns to her hometown as mayor, she doesn’t expect much to have changed. But now her ex-fiancé is the town planner, the biggest business is closed, and the only store interested in Celebration, NY is a Megamart. On top of it all, the liaison for the big, bad, box store is Marcus Weaver, her childhood crush. And he’s still as dangerously delectable as ever.

Marcus unwillingly spent his teens in Celebration with his vindictive, drunken uncle. As far as Marcus is concerned, the town’s only use is to cement his rise up the corporate ladder. He needs that Megamart opened, and Ivy is his ticket. But the sexy, stubborn mayor could also be his downfall.
As the unemployed townspeople put on the pressure, Ivy needs to do something. With a fresh downtown-renewal project in the works, Ivy could stop Marcus and his Megamart before they kill the town’s spirit. But with sparks flying between Ivy and Marcus, they each need to decide what’s more important: their careers or their hearts.
