Review : Archangel’s Shadows 😍😍

AMAZING!

Complete, totally filled in, bursting, bright FIVE Stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Loved it!
I’ve read every single story by Nalini Singh till now, and I have never been let down. I loved them all😍😍😘

Both her Psy-Changeling series and her Guild Hunter series are, and will remain, the epitome of perfection. I use them to judge my liking of others books😜 The Rock Kiss series has been good till now, and knowing Nalini, It’s just going to get better and better😍

Anyway, so the blurb goes like:
In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot— should not—be walking the streets.

This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…

Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.

Now, Ash and Javier also have another story, a little hunt in the past which took them to Atlanta, Nazarach’s territory, in Angel’s Pawn

I loved that, and I remember wailing that I couldn’t get enough of those two😋

And I still can’t! They are just so cute! They also happen to be the only couple in the guild hunter series who have some history in the previous books, and that just made this book so much more intriguing and fascinating.

I totally recommend this book and the others by Nalini to anyone who is an adult and enjoys fantasy, paranormalcy, or just plain amazing romance😃

And a Merry Christmas to one and all this year!
(Even though it’s quite a bit in advance😜)

Review: Stage Dive Series by Kylie Scott

So I recently read the first three books in the Stage Dive Series – Lick, Play, and Lead, and can I just say, Fabulous!

Four stars to each of them! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Book One : LICK

My personal favourite of the three, Lick is the story of the Lead Guitarist, and lyricist of the band, David.

The blurb:
“Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.”

The waking-up-in-Vegas-with-no-memory-recollections should’ve made the book quite annoying, but o. The contrary, I found it much more appealing, especially the unearthing of all the events, slowly… *wink, wink*

David’s heart is über soft, and that’s one of the facts that made me totally love him.

That said, this book obviously was amazing enough to make me pick up the next two in the series;)

Book Two: PLAY

Totally worth the four stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

The blurb:
“Readers the world over fell in love with sexy drummer Mal in Kylie Scott’s first Stage Dive novel. Now, Kylie Scott is back, and this time it’s bad-boy Mal’s turn to fall in love.

The drummer in a wildly successful rock band, Mal’s never had trouble with the ladies. It doesn’t hurt that he’s sexy as hell with a wicked sense of humor. But as much as Mal loves his ladies, romance and happily-ever-after just isn’t in his set of cards. Until one night, Mal meets the woman of his dreams. But can this cynical rocker ever trust in love?”

One word describes the entire book – crazy. But just like Mal, the Drummer, crazy’s too cute. Tragic at some points, totally makes you adore certain characters, and a certain canine character *grins*

A thumbs up, must read for all romance lovers😊

Book Three : LEAD

Four stars, in spite of and sometimes because of the muleheadedness of Jimmy 🌟🌟🌟🌟

The blurb:
“Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic New Adult series from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, author of Lick and Play.

As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it’s booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.  

Lena’s not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.”

I must say, I enjoyed the first book better than the others, but this one is in no way not worth a read.

I felt that out of the four band members, Jimmy was the one I can most easily picture as an actual rock star – aloof, but with so much buried pain.

Lena was a fun character, I was constantly waiting for both of them to do something more moronic than the other:P

Now, I’m totally waiting for Ben’s story, and an amazing (hopefully) conclusion to the series:)

Review : The Darkest Night – Lords of the Underworld 01

“All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she’ll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member — a man trapped in a hell of his own.

Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments… and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction — and a soul-shattering test of love…
Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive — and unimaginably powerful…”

“Every night death came, slowly, painfully, and every morning Maddox awoke in bed, knowing he’d have to die again later. That was his greatest curse and his eternal punishment…”

*sigh*

Hooked from the first line, I couldn’t put this book down. I absolutely loved the Ashlyn, the Lords, and the amazing setting. This happens to be the first book I read about Budapest, and while I would have liked some more info about the gorgeous city, I was too caught up in the fast-paced, action-packed, non-stop ride of amazingness;)

I love how Ms. Showalter has taken something to be reviled, and spun a story which endears these horrifying, villainous creatures to us.

***spoilers***
I heart, heart how Maddox is Ashlyn’s eye of the storm. Too cute!
Danika and Reyes! Can you see it too, guys!!? Has to be!!! 😍😍

I loved it enough to immediately order the next four books in the series;) Will post soon with the next reviews😊

Received an ARC from Meljean Brook!!

Today morning in the bus to college, when I checked my mail, I was ecstatic to see that I had received a copy of Frozen, a paranormal romance novella. I was all *grabby hands!*

IMG_9745.JPG

“For a year and a half, Olivia Martin has tried to forget Erik Gulbrandr, the glacial man who’d scorched her mouth with a single kiss. But when Olivia finds herself snowbound with Erik on the winter solstice, she discovers that the man who set her body aflame is cursed by abominable needs — and a desire that might destroy them both…”

That’s the description;)

Now, my views :

Five freaking complete stars!
I love Meljean’s stories, always have and always will. She can make you believe in the most unrealistic things, and she induces the what-if factor into all my thoughts. I love her ideas, and this one, about frost giants is fabulous!

I’ve never read a story about frost giants but I’m looking forward to getting into more of them 😉

I absolutely loved the emotions that I could feel emanating off Erik, and I liked reading in first person writing style, but I’ld still prefer to read in third person, just because I feel it helps me connect more to the male lead, and keeps me from feeling that he’s too aloof.
But I did enjoy frozen, because I did feel Erik, even though it was from Olivia’s perspective.

I would have loved loved loved (hint, hint) to have an epilogue!
*sigh*

I gobbled the entire 52k words in less than an hour, and I hope you guys enjoy it too!

Any thoughts, comments, or views, please do let me know below:)

OMG! I’m finally doing it!

To all my friends and family, you have seen me read voraciously, weirdly and constantly. Here’s to you, for not killing me when I refused to respond to your calls, when I embarrassed everyone in the restaurant by crying ‘cuz Doby died, and most of all, when I hounded you guys to read some book or the other;)

I have been deliberating about whether or not I should create a blog, and now, it’s finally here! I’ve done it! 

Here’s hoping it’s an amazing journey:)
