Book Review: Rebel Ink by Laura Wright

Rebel Ink 
(Wicked Ink Chronicles #3)
by Laura Wright

Blurb: 
Vincent

Hot chicks and cool ink have been my life, my everything, for the past five years. But with one phone call that bliss is totally shot to shit. Don’t want to hear it. Don’t want to deal with it. But oh yeah, it’s coming for me. The motherfucking past. And who’s along for the ride? You’re never gonna believe it. That’s right, another blast from my past. The one and only rejection. Blondie. Hey…maybe it’s not all bad. Maybe I can finally get her - legs up and back to the mattress, that is.

Lisa

Yes, I’m getting married. And yes, it’s to ‘Buttons.’ I’m not embarrassed and I don’t think it’s a failure. Unfortunately, my bestie doesn’t agree. In fact, she thinks she has to rescue me. But ladies and gents, I’m beyond help. I’m cooked. I just want to fade into the Santa Barbara’s overly polished woodwork. If only a gorgeous tatted, foul-mouthed problem from my past would stop showing up and showing off what I’m never going to allow myself to have.

Viviana's Review: 
From the very beginning of the series, I've always liked Vincent's sarcastic ass! I knew there was much more to him and that there was going to be an interesting story. When a new series begin, you never know if a secondary character is going to get their story told or not. I was extremely happy when Laura shared with us that Vincent was indeed going to get his own story.
While it has some time between books being released, Laura does a great job of reminding the readers who everyone is and you're never lost. 

I have to admit... I wanted to smack Lisa... really? Making such an important decision such as marriage based on only trying to live on her own for 6 months. I know it can be scary but jeez, come on! I can totally see why Vincent would be making the jokes about the Rich Kid! It also bothered me how she didn't stand up to her parents where her best friend Addison was concerned.  t first though. She turns things around and shows her maturity and that she can actually be a true friend.

Speaking of Vincent, there is a reason why he is the way he is and does what he does, and it isn't what you think. Laura handled a taboo subjected matter as well as one can in 97 pages and Vincent also handled it a la Vincent. 

Classic Laura Wright, we have hot and steamy scenes!!! 

Overall, a great continuation of the series! Heart felt and emotional!

Release Day Blitz: Moon Rise (Twilight Shifters #2) by Kate Danley


Moon Rise 
(Twilight Shifters #2) 
By Kate Danley

Blurb:

Just because the battle was won does not mean the war is over. Aein, Lars, and Finn are sent back to the swamps to protect the one object which may save their pack. But in the recent turmoil, the border has been left unguarded and nightmarish creatures are slipping through. There is a reason why two people must always be there to hold the boundary, a lesson which Aein, Lars, and Finn are about to learn.

Teaser:

And then, without a word of warning, Finn bent down and pressed his lips against Aein's, his stubble rough upon her mouth.  His arms engulfed her, wrapping her so tight, she wasn't sure where her body ended and his began.  She felt herself melting, the heat chasing away all the horrors of the swamp.  The kiss was desperate and urgent.  It devoured her whole.  It was as if he needed to fit a lifetime of regrets and passion into that one moment.  It was as if he didn't trust she would be there for him ever to touch again.  When they parted, he rested this forehead against hers so he was still just a whisper away.  "Don't you dare die on me.  Don't you dare be the one I find in a heap, slaughtered by some monster because I wasn't fast enough getting back.  Don't you dare.  Live."

Book Review: At The Stars by Elisabeth Staab

At the Stars
by Elisabeth Staab 

Blurb: 

A GIRL TRYING TO LEAVE HER PAST BEHIND
I was a normal teenager who loved music and dancing, until the day I was attacked in my favorite record store. A few years later when my mom succumbed to depression and took her own life, I couldn’t stay in my hometown with all the memories and the curious stares. I decided to get in my car and just go – except my car decided it was done going outside a tiny place called Evergreen Grove. That’s where I found Jake. Or I guess Jake found me.

A GUY WHO CAN’T LET HIS GO
For the last eight years, all I can think about is the day I ended another man’s life. Then I manage to save Cassie’s, and I feel like maybe I’ve got some kind of second chance. To do what I couldn’t before, or maybe even for something bigger. Something like love. If only I could feel like I deserve her...

Viviana's Review:
Gatta start with the cover! Usually I don't mention or discuss covers, but WOW! Not only is it a stunning photography by Michael Stokes but the cover model Adam Von Rothfelder truly embodies Jake.  This is a perfect example of an author reaching out to a photographer and commissioning work!

Elisabeth's first NA novel and it was sweet and an enjoyable quick read. I literally read it in one sitting and didn't want to put it down because I was enjoying my quiet time reading! As I'm sitting here typing up the review, I'm trying to remember why exactly I enjoyed it so much and BANG! It didn't follow many of the New Adult tropes!! WOOHOO and THANK YOU Elisabeth!!! 

There are those moments where Jake tries to push Cassie away with the "I'm not a good guy" speech or he tries to have that internal conversation with himself (for the reader's information) on why he's no good for Cassie, but not once does it come across as whiney or is it so overly done where you want to jump through your kindle and smack him. Also, Cassie isn't sitting down and saying "poor sad me" or "I'm so broken and unloveable because of my tragic past". On the contrary, she is one tough cookie who doesn't allow her past to make her a helpless victim. 

AT THE STARS is a story about two individuals who's past is dictating their present and limiting their future. Cassie's past is full of hurt (physically and emotionally), abandonment and betrayal. Jake is haunted by the death of a man he believe he caused. Together, they both learn to trust and realize that while one must realize that while the past is part of you forever, you do not have to let your past forever rule you. Cassie helps Jake realize that while he may have been the one to through the punch he wasn't the cause of death, not really. Jake helps Cassie realize that she can trust people to be there for her. 

Elisabeth also introduces secondary characters that you'll become intrigued with and will want to reach out to her to ask "So... when will they get their own story?". Both Dante (Jake's friend) and AJ (Cassie's friend) are two of those characters. The good news, Dante's story is next and I can't wait! Elisabeth will be tackling some taboos that are "about time" and I'm extremely happy she's doing this. Its about time the subject is approached and I know she will do it with the upmost respect and realism as she is a true professional. 

Overall this was a great, easy and fast read that you won't want to put down. You'll fall for the characters and  will want to read more about them!

Book Review: Fire Rising (Dark Kings, #2) by Donna Grant

Fire Rising 
(Dark Kings, #2) 
By Donna Grant

Blurb: 
Tristan, the newest Dragon King, is having a tough time fitting in. Despite his ability to transform into a proud, strong dragon at will, no one knows where he came from or how he became a Dragon King, including himself. When trouble arises in the form of the mob, Tristan is going to have to put aside his questions and band with the other Dragon Kings to protect Dreagan. As if things weren’t complicated enough, he is about to find something worth fighting for more important than the Dragon Kings…

Sammie Miller, pub owner in Oban, has been scorned by her business partner—and former lover. Used as a front for money laundering with the mob, Sammie is in great danger once she realizes what has happened. Barely escaping, she plans to rest at Dreagan for only a day before going back on the run. When Tristan swears to protect her, Sammie thinks his efforts will be in vain—the mob is too powerful, and it will take more than the average man’s devotion to keep her safe. But the closer she gets to Tristan, and the more he learns his secrets, Sammie can’t deny that having a Dragon King who worships you, body and soul, isn’t such a bad thing…

Viviana's Review:
Yikes! Catching up on reviews!!! Okay... There's a lot of mystery surrounding Tristan and I've been intrigued from book one! Mind you, I haven't read the other books from the spin of series so I don't know his past, but I'm completely, utterly captivated. That's how awesome Donna's writing is!

Sammie's world has been torn apart and must now seek refuge with the one person she hardly knows, her half sister, who happens to reside at Dreagan. So the story of Tristan and Sammie begin. Lots of bad things are happening to Sammie and Tristan is determined to keep her safe. She fights her feelings for him at first and of course, something big has to happen for her to wake up and realize what they have between them is real.

The character development for both the hero and heroine is great and I love that in this series, we get to see the other cast of characters we've come to know and love from the previous books. Donna keeps us wanting more and this is a true testament of a great series!

A School for Unusual Girls (Stranje House, #1) by Kathleen Baldwin


A School for Unusual Girls (Stranje House, #1)It’s 1814. Napoleon is exiled on Elba. Europe is in shambles. Britain is at war on four fronts. And Stranje House, a School for Unusual Girls, has become one of Regency England’s dark little secrets. The daughters of the beau monde who don't fit high society’s constrictive mold are banished to Stranje House to be reformed into marriageable young ladies. Or so their parents think. In truth, Headmistress Emma Stranje, the original unusual girl, has plans for the young ladies—plans that entangle the girls in the dangerous world of spies, diplomacy, and war.
After accidentally setting her father’s stables on fire while performing a scientific experiment, Miss Georgiana Fitzwilliam is sent to Stranje House. But Georgie has no intention of being turned into a simpering, pudding-headed, marriageable miss. She plans to escape as soon as possible—until she meets Lord Sebastian Wyatt. Thrust together in a desperate mission to invent a new invisible ink for the English war effort, Georgie and Sebastian must find a way to work together without losing their heads—or their hearts.
 

Dangerous Deception (Dangerous Creatures, #2) by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl


Dangerous Deception (Dangerous Creatures, #2)From the world of Beautiful Creatures--a dangerous new tale of love and magic continues in the sequel to Dangerous Creatures.
Love is ten kinds a crazy, right? Let me put it to you this way: If you can get away, run. Don't walk. Because once you're exposed, you'll never get a Siren outta your head.
Some loves are cursed. Others are...dangerous. Especially the love between wannabe rocker and quarter Incubus, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, and Dark Caster, Siren, and bonafide bad girl, Ridley Duchannes.
But now Ridley is missing, and Link was with her-right up until she vanished. Determined to find her, Link reunites with his New York bandmates and the mysterious Lennox Gates, who wants Rid for himself. Together they travel to the deep south, find the crossroads where blues guitarist Robert Johnson made his deal with the devil, discover a menagerie of Casters locked in cages, and uncover an evil in New Orleans that threatens to destroy them all.
This time, love might not be enough.
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of the Beautiful Creatures series, deliver their signature blend of mystery, suspense, and romance, with a healthy dose of wit and danger in this sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller Dangerous Creatures.
 

Eighth Grave After Dark (Charley Davidson, #8) by Darynda Jones


Eighth Grave After Dark (Charley Davidson, #8)With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately, a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon. A decades-old murder of the newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows is almost enough to pull her out of her doldrums.
Charley’s been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn’t know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick. He grows hotter with every moment that passes, his heat scorching across her skin every time he’s near, but naturally he swears he’s fine.
While the team searches for clues on the Twelve, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they’ve accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. But the good feelings don’t last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life.

When the Heavens Fall by Marc Turner


When the Heavens FallThe first of an epic swords & sorcery fantasy series for fans of Patrick Rothfuss, When the Heavens Fall features gritty characters, deadly magic, and meddlesome gods.
If you pick a fight with Shroud, the Lord of the Dead, you had better make sure you end up on the winning side, else death will mark only the beginning of your suffering.
A book that gives its wielder power over the dead has been stolen from a fellowship of mages that has kept the powerful relic dormant for centuries. The thief, a crafty, power-hungry necromancer, intends to use the Book of Lost Souls to resurrect an ancient race and challenge Shroud for dominion of the underworld. Shroud counters by sending his most formidable servants to seize the artifact at all cost.
However, the god is not the only one interested in the Book, and a host of other forces converge, drawn by the powerful magic that has been unleashed. Among them is a reluctant Guardian who is commissioned by the Emperor to find the stolen Book, a troubled prince who battles enemies both personal and political, and a young girl of great power, whose past uniquely prepares her for an encounter with Shroud. The greatest threat to each of their quests lies not in the horror of an undead army but in the risk of betrayal from those closest to them. Each of their decisions comes at a personal cost and will not only affect them, but also determine the fate of their entire empire.
