Before Sienna was devoured, before Lucas was consumed, they were all over each other . . .

Lucas Wolfe is used to getting what he wants—from everyone but one person, that is—so when he meets the wardrobe assistant hired to work his band’s newest video, he’s got to have her. From the moment Sienna first obediently whispers “Yes, Mr. Wolfe”, he knows she’s perfect for him.

Viviana's Review: 

I began reading "Devoured" when I read somewhere that there was a pre-qual novella that would "explain" certain things in "Devoured" allowing you to better connect with characters and understand their perspective. "Devoured" got closed and "All Over You" was downloaded. 

Cover Reveal: Lucky Number Four by Amanda Jason



Synopsis:

Pandora Ann Phillips’ life is just normal-crazy.

Her mom’s psychic, her dad’s mom is a snob, her mom’s parental units are ‘too down to earth’ and her best friends are newlyweds. Okay, so her best friends being newlyweds isn’t really abnormal, but living with them in a cramped two-bedroom apartment definitely is. Sex, sex, sex, is totally on their brains. Actually, it’s not only on their brains, but it’s on the kitchen table, couch, on top of the washer…well, you get the picture.

Book Review: Bewitch by Felicity Heaton

Bewitch
(Vampire Erotic Theatre #5)
By Felicity Heaton

Synopsis: 

A vampire with a past stained with blood and a soul tainted with darkness, he is perfect in his self-control, never surrendering to his darkest desires. Now a beautiful witch in the shadowy fae underworld threatens to reawaken long denied hungers and tempts him with carnal pleasure.

Payne despises the incubus side of his mixed genes and refuses to give it free rein, but when the wickedly sexy Elissa offers him a possible way to help a friend, he finds it difficult to resist paying the price, even if it will be his undoing—one night of passion at her command.

Elissa is a witch down on her luck until Payne comes crashing into her life. The dangerously handsome male is the key to fulfilling a promise she made, but he is also forbidden, and surrendering to the wildfire passion he stirs within her means risking ruin and death.

When one incredible night of fulfilling their deepest fantasies leads to more than just a pathway to keeping a promise and saving a friend, will they be able to overcome the barriers that stand between them and forever?

Viviana's Review: 
I've read the entire Vampire Erotic Theatre series and have loved them all! Payne was a character that intrigued me from when he first appeared in the series and I was extremely happy when I found out he would have his own story told!

Book Review: "Medusa, A Love Story" by Sasha Summers



Medusa, A Love Story
(Loves of Olympus Series, Bk #1)
By Sasha Summers

Synopsis: 
It's said love can change a person. Medusa wasn't always a monster...

Medusa is ruled by duty, to her Titan father and the Goddess Athena. She's no room for the tenderness her warrior guard, Ariston, stirs. When Olympus frees her from service, her heart leads her into the arms of the guard she loves... and curses her as the creature with serpent locks.

Ariston goes to war with a full heart... and dreadful foreboding. He learns too late of the danger Medusa faces, alone, and a Persian blade sends him into the Underworld. But death, curses, nor the wrath of the Gods will keep him from returning to her.

Poseidon will use Greece's war to get what he wants: Medusa. He does not care that she belongs to another. He does not care that she will be damned. He is a God, an Olympian, and she will be his.

Viviana's Review: 
An interesting and intriguing twist to the myth of Medusa we all know. We've read the Greek Myths in school and we've seen enough movies regarding the Greek Gods and their story to know of the  'evil', 'man hating', 'monster with snakes on her head' Medusa. Like the first line of the synopsis said "Medusa wasn't always a monster". Imagine the possibility of Medusa being a kind, loving and duty bound Priestess of Athena. She has friends and a family. She has hopes and dreams. She is loyal and takes her vows to Athena seriously. Yet there is a Soldier who's smile makes her heart flutter. Their love cannot be for both have taken an oath. This is the story of a woman, who loved with all her heart, the man that loved her and risked it all and the jealous Gods and Goddess who would see it they would not be together.

Book Review: "Lover At Last" by J.R. Ward (Guest Reviewer Paul)

Lover At Last
(Black Dagger Brotherhood, #11)
By J.R. Ward

Synopsis: 

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young—just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions... but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together... finally become one.

Paul's Review: 

It is always exciting when one of your top authors has a new book out, and when it became known that it was Qhuinn and Blay's book it just had to be read.  I can relate to Qhuinn in some ways; I have tattoos, dress unlike other guys (I wear a fedora whenever possible), have hardly ever felt like I belonged anywhere, and I am a rocker/metalhead.

Candie's Review:

Vivi hated Connor since he broke her heart in high school. She couldn’t believe that he was back in town and tormenting her with his rock star status and the love of the town. I loved the verbal sparring between Vivi and Connor. She was trying her best to but on a brave face and be the Saint that the pageant contest required so she could win, but Connor just brought out the worst in her. This was a very cute romance and I enjoyed it very much. I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading. For you voracious book readers, this one could be read in one sitting.

Candie's Review: 

I really enjoyed this book from Kelly Hunter.  I love stories that have strong emotion and intensity and “The One That Got Away” has a lot of both. I read this book on my flight home from Las Vegas and was so engrossed that I got a stern look and finger wagging from the stewardess when it was way past time to turn off my electronic device for landing.  Whoops!
