Throw Back Thursday………Sweet Evil (Sweet #1) by Wendy Higgins

“He was smoking hot. As in H-O-T-T, hott. I’d never understood until that moment why girls insisted on adding an extra t. This guy was extra-t-worthy.” 

“We have to face difficulties to find out what our true strengths are. How we come back from failure is a very valuable test.” 

“Wait,” Kaidan called from behind me. I squeezed my eyes shut for a second, but kept walking. Then I felt his hand around my 
wrist, spinning me in a half circle and pulling me to his chest. His face was so close. He reached down and cupped my face with one
woolly hand, and wiped the top corner of my lip hard with his thumb. I flinched back. 
“What are you doing?” 
“I…” He appeared to have no idea himself. “I wanted to see your freckle.” 
A vulnerable tenderness flashed across his face, more painful to see than the coldness. It took every ounce of strength I had not to 
beg for one last kiss. As fast as his expression had softened, it was back to stone again. 
“What do you want from me, Kai?” 
“For starters?” His voice lowered to sexy, dangerous depths. “I want to introduce myself to every freckle on your body.” 
A powerful shiver ripped through me.” 

“The beauty of poetry is that it can mean different things to different people at different times.”

Even after all this time, reading these quotes, I have all the feels!! Seriously Kai!! Ugh!! Sweet Evil to this day is one of my favorite paranormal romances. I know it is listed as YA, but this is more Mature YA. It is sexy, seductive, intense and full of action. I couldn’t get enough of this book. And once you meet Kaidan and Anna, you will totally understand. Their story sucks you in from the very first page and I promise you won’t be able to put it down.  It had everything I look for in a great read: Romance, Betrayal, and Heartbreak. It is fast paced and there is never a dull moment………

betweenheavenandhell

 

Being a fallen angel used to be easy. A quiet life with the people she loves is all Sara ever asked for. Unfortunately, the apocalypse didn’t get the message. After nearly losing everything, she’s managed to put her life back together and start living what she hoped was happily ever after with her small family. Now she wants nothing more than to hide away and pretend the end of the world is a distant rumor. Her life has already been torn apart once. Doesn’t she deserve a break?

The apocalypse finds its way back to her doorstep when a letter arrives. Is it a friendly warning, a dire threat, or a simple reminder that she can’t run away from what’s to come? Sara refuses to take heed and pays dearly for her avoidance. With her family in danger and the preservation of free will hanging in the balance, she finds herself with no other choice. Sara must follow the path forged for her, a path that may take away everything she holds dear and leave her in pieces at the end. She’s caught between Heaven and Hell, and the last person she’d ever have considered trusting might just be her greatest ally.


My Review

When we start off with Between Heaven and Hell, Sara is just wanting to live a normal life with Daniel. After everything that she’s been through and endured, almost loosing everything, she craves normal. And for a while Daniel and Sara are able to do just that. Unfortunately, with Heaven and Hell being at war, peace and happiness can’t last forever. Sara is faced with having to make some of the most difficult decisions. She has no choice, but to follow that path she’s destined to. This path will not be easy and it’s one that will have Sara questioning not only herself, but who the enemy really is….

Between Heaven and Hell was such a great read. After finishing the previous book, I could not wait to get my hands on this one and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. This book gave me everything that I was looking for. Once again, I found myself sucked into the story-line, unable to put it down. The characters are captivating, especially one new one that I can’t wait to see more of. Between Heaven and Hell had so many exciting twists and turns. I found my self holding my breath in anticipation of what would happen.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and this series so far. It has reignited my love for paranormal reads. I love angels/fallen angels. I am so excited about this series and I can’t wait to see where the story will take us next.

Review: At Death's Door by Astrid V. Tallaksen

Posted on

The world is a pretty straightforward place. Even for medium Sara Stone things seem pretty simple, aside from the whole talking to spirits bit. But when the spirits get too hard to handle and Sara ends up admitted to a mental hospital, the world starts to seem a lot less straightforward. First her family disappears, including her four year old son. Then she gets the sneaking suspicion that not only are the staff at the mental hospital somehow connected, but they also have no intention of ever letting her leave the hospital. 

Everything changes when Sara has her first visitor in three months. Daniel is handsome, friendly, and a complete stranger. When he promises to spring her from the hospital and swears that everything she’s experienced is completely real, Sara has no choice but to believe him. But once she reaches a run-down Victorian house in the tiny Alabama town her rescuer calls home, the last thing she expects to discover is that every memory she has is a lie. 

Daniel reveals a world filled with angels, demons, and an impending war humans know nothing about. Sara wants to ignore her role in the whole mess – all that matters is solving the mystery of where her son has gone. But the forces of Heaven, Hell, and the Heart have other plans for her. Can she find her child before the world comes crashing down?


My Review

What a fantastic debut novel! I’ve been looking for a good paranormal read and am a huge fan of the fallen angles, so needless to say this one hit all the marks for me!

At Death’s Door follows the story of Sara. Sara is no ordinary woman. She is a medium and can see spirits. She soon finds herself in a mental hospital and that’s when things get confusing. First her family disappears and she is told she doesn’t have a son. She is confused and starts questioning everything. She’s starting to loose hope that she’ll ever be able to leave the mental hospital….Three months later, everything changes. Sara gets a visit from a stranger named Daniel. There’s just something about him. Her instincts want her to trust him, even though they are strangers. Sure he’s handsome, and friendly.  But he gives her hope and promises that she will get free. Will Sara finally get the answers that she is desperately seeking and when she does, will she be prepared to handle what she learns??

At Death’s Door was a fantastic, and fast paced read. I loved the paranormal aspects and the world that Astrid V. Tallaksen created. This story had great mystery, suspense, humor and romance. At Death’s Door had some really great twists and will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. I really enjoyed the plot of this story. I was so intrigued by it and I loved trying to figure out what was really happening. This was a great debut novel by Astrid V. Tallaksen and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author in the future!

Book Review: Stargazer by Sunniva Dee

I’m Luna, and I’ve been in the Twilight Zone since I moved in with my sister and her boyfriend.
I sense their secrets in every corner of the house.

Gabriel is eerily beautiful, and his personality disturbingly perfect, while Gaia’s inexplicable PTSD and mood swings bounce her between bliss and despair.

Until Gabriel’s brothers pay a visit.

Cassiel…
He’s the night to his brother’s day. He’s sex personified and the devil in one hell of a stunning package. It’s been years since I last saw him, but this man makes me burn. He hooks me with his touch. Enthralls me with those oddly simmering eyes. He pierces my soul with his knowing smirks, and I am losing myself in him.

Ka…
With pearlescent hair and spring green eyes, he crashes into my world. I thought this crazy, beautiful man could mend my bleeding heart. Make things recognizable again—normal. Instead he pulls me from the embers and feeds me to the open fire.

College life. Is this what everyone goes trough?

My Review

Stargazer is an exciting new Paranormal Romance and can be read as a stand-alone. However, even though is not necessary to read Shattering Halos first, I feel that it does give you a better understanding of Gaia, Gabriel and Cassiel….

Stargazer follows the story of Luna. Luna is an outsider looking in. She has no idea the truth about who or what Gabriel and Cassiel really are. She has her suspicions and knows that there is something different about them, but could never imagine what they truly are. 

Everything seems to be going along fine until Gabriel and Cassiel’s brother, Ka shows up. Soon Luna will find herself caught between two men. Luna will be left to learn a very important lesson. And that lesson is that things and people are not always what they seem. Will Luna make the right decision before it’s too late??

One of the things that I loved about this book was that it was told from multiple points of view. Yes, sometimes, it can be confusing. But when it’s done right, it adds so much to the story. I loved getting a look inside Cassiel’s head. I finally understand why he behaved the way that he did and how hard he tried to fight the things that he was feeling.

Ka was another one that was very interesting. In the whole battle of good vs evil, I enjoyed seeing him submerged into the human world and hard it was to adjust to things. I definitely had a love/hate relationship with his character.

As far as Gaia and Gabriel, I really just enjoyed being around them again. Their love for one another is so strong. After everything that they endured from Shattering Halos, it was so good to see how their life was after.

And last but not least, Luna. She was so stubborn and frustrated me at times. I wanted to yell at her and tell her to choose who I wanted her to be with. In the end though, she listened to me 😉

Stargazer was a very enjoyable read for me. It was a little bumpy in the beginning, but the pacing quickly improved. I really enjoyed the paranormal aspects of the story and of course, the multiple points of view. Stargazer was sexy, full of angst and romance and of course what would a paranormal be without a little action!

I think that Stargazer had the perfect ending. Everything wrapped up pretty nicely. However, I won’t object to another visit into this world…..
