Review: Desired: Stella

Desired: Stella Desired: Stella by Monica La Porta
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Losing everything you've ever known and had is tragic all in itself but to end up homeless on top of all that would be hell. Going from a princess to someone just trying to make things meet Stella works hard to keep herself afloat but when everything goes downhill she does the unthinkable, at least to her, until she finally comes face to face with the one man she has fantasized about for a very long time, things change. It's now a fight for survival. Monica La Porta did an amazing job with this story in the Blood Courtesan series.

Review: Sexy Bad Neighbor

Sexy Bad Neighbor Sexy Bad Neighbor by Misti Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story made me laugh out loud a lot. Love the goat. About fell out of my chair laughing with one scene that had to do with the phallic chandelier. And don't get me started on the pranks. This was a really fun read. Misti Murphy and Tami Lund really made my day while reading this story.

Review: Magic Fire

Magic Fire Magic Fire by Catherine Vale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fae and Dragon two of my favorite paranormal mixed together in one book. You get adventure, heat, and twist and turns all rolled up into one fun book to read. The characters work well together as the story unfolds without giving too much away all at once. The characters also overcome prejudices that are quite common in our own world just because someone is different. Catherine Vale really rocked this story.

Coming May 22nd

Cover: RBA Designs

Photographer: Wander Aguiar

From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next seductive, unforgettable Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…

Zachary Kennedy has never been known as a fighter, but he’ll never regret fighting for her…

I’m Zee Kennedy.
Quiet. Reserved. Predictable.
When my brother died, everyone thought I was just the good guy who stepped up to take his place in the band.

No one knew what I was hiding. The one thing I’ve been fighting for.

For six years, I’ve never lost focus.

Not until one chance encounter with Alexis Kensington.

Now she’s become my greatest temptation.
I knew better than to touch her, but now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t get enough.
Her kiss becomes my air. Her body my salvation.

She needed a savior and somehow she became mine.

Taking her was a betrayal. But keeping her means risking everything.
One look at Alexis Kensington, and I know she’s worth the fight.
Will my past continue to keep me down or will I finally find the strength to pull myself up and Stand…

Tingles rushed, my words nothing more than pants as he kissed down through the valley of my breasts. “Maybe you’re just remembering who you are. Who you were always supposed to be.”

I felt as if I was so close to knowing him. This boy who’s beauty had been muted.

He groaned, half pained, half demand. “You almost make me feel like him.”  

Yanking me away from the railing, he hoisted me high. My legs were wrapped high around his chest as he carried me the rest of the way to the upper loft. To this magical place where twilight touched every corner, whispered its secrets and danced in its shadows.

He’d barely tossed me to the bed when he was over me, shoving up my dress and ripping it free, my fingers just as frantic as I tore his shirt over his head. I searched him, hands racing across his chest, feeling the wild beat of his conflicted heart, hearing the struggle that whimpered from his spirit.

He angled down and captured my mouth again. He kissed and bit and nipped as he held my face steady in the frame of his hands. Then he edged down, driving me wild with this murmurs of kisses at my jaw and ear and neck.


I writhed, dizziness rushing as I stared up at him towering over me.

His body was brimming with hard, cut muscle. Muscle that jumped and ticked and flexed, as if the desire thrumming in his veins stalked back and forth, a caged predator, searching for a way to be released.

My gaze traveled across the tattoo on his chest.


“Fight for me,” I begged.

Out of all of Del's stories, this book is my absolute favorite. There are so many emotions and action and mysteries unfolding it really keeps you at the edge of your seat.

Review: Sharpen the Blade

Sharpen the Blade Sharpen the Blade by C.J. Ellisson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story is so full of unexpected twists and turns, adventure and mystery. Uncovering the past that was buried a long time ago. Love, loss and so much pain. I love a story that allows you to feel what is going on and this one most definitely did that for me. I have been reading this series since the very first book and can't get enough.
