Night Walker Book Review – Aaron L. Speer

Night Walker is the first book that I have read by Aaron L. Speer and I must say I was definitely impressed. Being an avid reader and partial to vampire stories this one grabbed my attention from the get go. Night Walker is currently available for FREE with KU so make sure to grab your copy today! This is just book one in the three book series, Undeadly Secrets Series which also includes Day Dreamer and Shadow Chaser.

One of the first things that I really liked about the story was the different setting that he gave compared to many other stories in the same genre. His strong plot, mystery and the allure of the characters draw you in and wanting more.

In the beginning you get a brief history of the vampires and leading up to the story line in which you meet Alex, Lauren and Matt.

The author did a great job of creating real and likable characters starting with Alex. While she has had a tough life it makes her real to many who have also struggled with one thing or another. While these three characters are great friends their friendship will soon be tested when they seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or maybe…just maybe it was the RIGHT place and time for Alex and the mysterious Dante.

When one friend is interested in the club owner Dante who only has eyes for Alex and a jealous boyfriend, Matt – and clueless Alex things are about to get crazy for them all.

The history of how things came to be and what is at stake for everyone involved is revealed throughout this fast paced book and will definitely keep you interested. I won’t go into more details because I don’t like spoilers but will say that I loved the book.

I can see the planning and research that went into the book along with character building and I see absolutely no plot holes at all. The characters are real, likable and distinguishable which makes the read even better. I look forward to reading more of Aaron’s work and recommend that you check out Night Walker today if you haven’t already!

Awakening Book Review – Samantha Long

513VL0jKsNL._SX310_BO1,204,203,200_So I just finished Awakening (Book one in the Guardian Series) by Samantha Long and loved it. The characters themselves are mainly guardians who are these scared kids that were raised with what they thought was a random rare gift until they each find out there are 5 others that are like them and each possess a different ability. They are being hunted by something evil and will battle against various paranormal oddities including vampires. While this book does not focus on vampires I liked the book enough I wanted to recommend it to anyone who is looking for something fresh and exciting. I cannot wait to dive into book two Sacred and then Hallowed, book three which are also available. Grab your copy of Awakening today or the Guardian Series Box Set and start the adventure that still has me reeling and wanting more!

Tempted by a Vampire by Susan Griscom – Book Review

Tempted by a Vampire (Immortal Hearts of San Francisco Book 1)

51ZaT-ntmFL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_I loved reading Cian’s and Magdalena’s story. The author Susan Griscom does a great job creating a fun filled vampire story that gives a new spin on things. The story shows us how the vampires typically satisfy their needs and cravings with various strangers. Feeding their lust and desires with blood and sex so when Cian chose this random woman he had no clue that it wouldn’t be so easy to walk away from her. Magdalena has a boyfriend who was unhappy with her decision to not move to San Francisco with him and things are about to go south when Magdalena wants to change their current situation. I won’t go into more details because I hate giving away spoilers but this book is a must read. I have read literally hundreds of vampire books and this one had a fresh face on it and was definitely an enjoyable read. The perfect mixture of paranormal romance with a side of sexy action that you don’t want to miss out on. Make sure to pre-order your copy today for only $0.99 and find out why Tempted by a Vampire is now on my favorites list!

Dangerous Waters by CM Michaels – Book Review

516s2A+mvML._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_So I recently had the pleasure of reading Dangerous Waters by CM Michael’s and absolutely loved it. This is the first thing that I have ever read by this author and I am absolutely addicted. The book itself has various paranormal aspects to it which I love. Originally I wanted to read the book because I love vampires but what this book has to offer goes well beyond what I could have ever imagined. When I read the book it was perfectly portrayed from what I thought a females prospective to find out that the author is in fact a male. Bravo! I have to say the “supernatural” elements that he has added to the book only betters it. I never go into detail about the actual book because I do not like to give away spoilers but will say there are a few surprises and twists throughout the book that I didn’t see coming. Two thumbs up for Dangerous Waters. I cannot wait to read the rest of his books. If you have yet to get your copy click HERE to do so now!

Frost Burn by Erica Stevens – Book Review

teaser2Erica Stevens, has done it yet once again with her amazing upcoming release of Frost Burn. This book which is part one in her new Fire & Ice Series is seriously amazing. I have always been a huge fan of Erica/Brenda’s books and I think this one has meshed her writing styles from her previous books on both pen names. From the beautiful cover to the amazing new world that she has spun for us with Julian and Quinn which was born from her previous Kindred Series. I love anything paranormal with a hint of mystery and Erica has given it to us in this tiny town that Quinn thinks shes safe in or at least partially happy with no one really bothering her or out to get her. At least she thinks that’s the case and when Julian learns things that even Quinn doesn’t know it will test both of their beliefs and may create an unbreakable bond between two of the most unlikely people who should ever be together. I had the privilege of getting an early ARC of Frost Burn and I am already hooked. I love the way that Julian and Quinn are portrayed in the book and look forwarding to reading more! I highly recommend that you pre-order your copy today so it will be automatically delivered to you when it’s released on the 17th. If you have yet to read the Kindred Series you can still enjoy this one but I recommend starting with the Kindred Series first! Below is the order in which the Kindred Series comes in!

Frost Burn (Book 1 in the Fire & Ice Series)

Kindred (Book 1 in the Kindred Series) FREE!

Ashes (Book 2 in the Kindred Series)

Kindled (Book 3 in the Kindred Series)

Inferno (Book 4 in the Kindred Series)

Phoenix Rising (Book 5 in the Kindred Series)

Master For Tonight II Book Review

coverI just finished reading Master for Tonight II by Elaine Barris and once again this author delivered. I originally met this amazing author last year and was lucky enough to read and review book one which hooked me right away. I have been anxiously awaiting book two and found it to be as good if not better than book one. From the beautiful cover to the flawless writing style Elaine gives you a vampire book that has suspense, raw emotions and a touch of naughtiness to complete the perfect read. We was introduced to Julian and Kate in book one where he just had to have her even if it was just for one night. However, after being together they both knew it was meant to be. What happens when the love of his life is taken? This powerful vampire will not stand by and let his love be taken forever. But what can he really do about it and will he be able to save her in time? Will Kate regret ever meeting Julian and allowing him into her home? These are questions that you will have to read the book to find out. I absolutely loved it and once again cannot wait to read more by this author that is destined to hit the best seller list with many of the greats!!! If you have yet to grab your copy or haven’t read either of the books make sure to click the links below to grab your copy!

Passion Follows Pain: Passion Series Book Review – J.A. Mellville

coverI just finished reading book three in the Passion Series by J.A. Mellville and I dread reading book 4 just because that will mean I will have to play the waiting game until book 5 is released. Passion and Fire follows Lucian and his fondness for the shy little blonde that moves in next door to take care of the elderly neighbor after breaking her leg. Little does he know that the secrets from her past stand to be the barrier that will keep them divided even when he’s ready to risk everything for her. Arissa is a beautiful blue eyed blonde that grabs Lucian’s attention immediately after seeing her for the first time and will continue to tug at his heart strings. What he fails to realize is that her past haunts her and while others see the beauty and qualities that she has to offer she feels ugly and dirty. I truly loved this book and could feel the raw emotion throughout it from various characters. I love the various point of views that brings out in this book. I am completely hooked on this amazing series.

The Passion Series Book 1 & 2 Book Review – J.A. Melville

passionSo I have been reading The Passion Series by J.A. Melville and just had to do another recap because this series really is amazing. For those that have yet to read these books you are definitely missing out. The books include the sexy vampires that we crave but they also have hot steamy action that will leave you craving for your own reenactment of what they experience together. I have completely read book 1 & 2 and will be diving into book three very shortly.

So Passion after Dark was the first book that I ever read by J.A. Melville and I loved it. Anything vampire related has always been my preferred type of book and I rarely read erotica but she created the perfect combo which hooked me as soon as I read the first couple of chapters. The book which follows main character Allegra (author by the way brilliant) and Dominick the sexy vampire who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go for it. The book has lots of surprises that you do not see coming & amazing sex which will definitely make your panties a little damp. I like the fact that the author of this amazing book isn’t afraid to make the sex scenes vivid and nothing about this book is timid. If you are looking for a hot steamy paranormal read this is the one for you. kk

After reading book one in this series I knew I had to dive right into book two – Passion by Control. Fabian from the very first book is cold hearted, cocky and cares about no one other than himself. Unfortunately for him the two people he thought he had gotten rid of is ready to seek revenge in the form of a sexy little witch that will leave his head messed up in ways he never could imagine. This book is full of love, hate, jealousy and again twists that I never saw coming and seriously cried about. This book will draw you in and cause you to feel various emotions while sitting on edge to see what happens next. I absolutely loved this book and I think it was my preferred one so far but I will probably say the same about book 3 which I am reading now. Love this author and her amazing creativity!!!!

Jared, Duncan & Sid (The Protectors Series) Review

17213789 20433287 2940148479093_p0_v1_s260x420As many of you know I recently reviewed the book Damon. This is book one in the Protectors Series, written by Teresa Treadway Gabelman. I also had the pleasure of doing an interview with her and recently completed the other 3 books in the series which are Jared (book 2), Duncan (book 3) and Sid which is book 4. I was told by various friends that share my love for vampires that this was the series to read so after finishing Damon I had to know what happened next with these sexy warriors. Each book allows you to follow various warriors throughout their daily life, including adventure, romance and more. However, unlike many other series that focuses strictly one character this talented author has the ability to bring the last story into the next one giving the previous characters their own moments in each book. Each book is well written and with her creative talent she truly brings the story and her characters to life.  I have to say that I have read so many books by new authors (or at least new to me) within the last year and these books have made Teresa move into one of my top 5 favorite authors.  So to single the books out Jared (book 2) follows him and his love interest Tessa along with a few surprises along the way. Duncan (book 3) shows a softer but scary side to this vicious vampire warrior. You will also see more of a couple of the characters from the first book in which Nicole and Damon as well as a plot that carries over into each book. Sid allows us to see a side of this vampire warrior aside from the sarcastic funny guy that we have grown to know. Each of these books have their own storyline but still has the previous plots intertwined with it giving it a powerful punch that readers look for. I for one cannot wait to read the next books in the series including more about Slade (which btw is my favorite vampire in the series). Tough vampires that ride motorcycles, train and protect those that they love while being sexy while doing so. What more could you ask for? If you have yet to read even the first book Damon click below to get your copy of these amazing books today.

 

Damon (The Protectors Series) Book #1

Jared (The Protectors Series) Book #2

Duncan (The Protectors Series) Book #3

Blood Justice Book Review

51fcWP82keL._SL1200_When I first started reading Blood Justice I wasn’t sure what to expect due to the description of the book but after getting into it I soon realized this is not a regular vampire book but a story that brings together various aspects including crime, mystery, paranormal beings and humans in a way that I found very fascinating. The story follows main character Justine which lost her beloved daughter after she was brutally gang raped and murdered. She is hell bent on having her revenge and after being saved by Simone Gireaux, a French vampire which holds the key to giving Justine the strength and time needed to hunt down her daughters killers. However, things do not go as planned and with various twists and turns you will quickly be drawn into this amazing book.
