Review of Fall with Me (Wait for You #4) by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

Fall with Me (Wait for You #4)  by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

22693284

Review: J Lynn really knows how to turn up the heat in this series. I really had thought after the last book, that things could not get any hotter. Oh boy was I wrong.

I had a lot of fun reading about Roxy and Reece. Roxy is such a hoot and I loved how real she was throughout the whole book. How she struggled with what happened to her friend Charlie, how she tried to bring him back to the present. I just loved that about her, she was very mostly about being morally right. Because yeah if I was in her shoes I would be passed about what happened to my friend and hate the person who did that to them. Also the whole thing with Reece and the things she had a tough time telling him, were what a lot of people have hard times telling others. Well all of the things except the one big thing she did not tell. ( I won’t say what it is, but its a little funny. So now you just have to read the book to know).

Reece. Oh man, on man. He was not at all what I was expecting. After reading Jax and Calla’s book, I just got a little bit of who and maybe what kind of person Reece was. But nope after reading Fall with me, my whole image of him has changed. I actually understand him a lot more than any of the other male characters we have seen in the wait for you series. He was also very hot as hell in this book. If its one thing I know about J Lynn its that she does an amazing job describing the steamy moments in her books. By far the steamy moments in this book between Roxy and Reece have been so of the steamiest that I have read from her.

Summary: Jennifer L. Armentrout, New York Times bestselling author of the Wait for You series, delivers a new novel of first love, second chances, and scorching chemistry between an artistic bartender and the tough, sexy cop who’s determined to win her.

Roxy’s loved Reece Anders since she was fifteen, so when the straitlaced cop finally surrendered to a steamy encounter years later, Roxy hoped he’d fall for her, too. He didn’t. Or that’s what she’s always believed. But then Reece storms back into her life when the man who injured her childhood friend is out of prison and wanting to make amends—something Roxy cannot do.

The last thing she wants is to go there with Reece again, but he’s determined to prove to her that he’s exactly what she needs. Especially when a sick creep starts messing with her. But what’s more dangerous to Roxy—a psycho after her or the past that refuses to let go and allow her to open up her heart again?

Release Day Launch for 21 Stolen Kisses by Lauren Blakely

21SK Release

21SK Facebook Party Graphic

Excerpt:

He inhales sharply. The look in his eyes says we’re crossing into the danger zone again. It’s the only place I want to be with him. Because when we’re there, nothing between us feels dangerous. Everything feels right.

“I turn eighteen in a few more weeks,” I say, like my birthday is an open invitation for us to slam back into each other.

He nods. “I know.”

A breeze blow by and rustles his hair. A lock falls out of place. Instinct takes over. I raise my hand to reach for his hair.

But he’s faster. He grasps my wrist, and the second he does, the moment expands. It stretches and unfolds into the thing I will replay tonight and tomorrow and the next day. I stare at his hand clasped around my wrist, flashing back to all the times he held my hand, touched my wrist, and ran his fingers along my arm. I shiver as the memories collide, the past slamming into the present.

I look up from our hands to his eyes. Blazing, full of heat. Full of all that restraint from him that I know so well.

ABOUT 21 STOLEN KISSES:

When I first met him I resisted.  Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass. That was a lie. It never faded. And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.  There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us. Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.  Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love — the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before love — landed me in therapy. Now I’m heading to college, and it’s time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he’s still in my life? Because the one man I’ve always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can’t have… And he wants me just as fiercely. Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes #2)

17404295
Summary:
It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell. Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves? Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats? As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.

Release Week Blitz for NOWHERE BUT HERE by Katie McGarry

Nowhere But Here - cover

About NOWHERE BUT HERE:

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible 

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she’s curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn’t mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They’re the good guys. They protect people. They’re…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club’s most respected member—is in town, he’s gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it’s his shot at his dream. What he doesn’t count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

NOWHERE BUT HERE Excerpt

From Oz’s Point of View. Set up: Emily has been separated from her parents and after a long night of worrying, her emotions and exhaustion catch up to her and it causes Oz to have his first fluttering of emotion for Emily. 

WIND BLOWS IN FROM THE NORTH AND A FEW pieces of Emily’s dark hair sweep across her face. One min­ute Emily’s a bright flame, then a gust snuffs out her light. Her body sways like a top at the tail end of a spin and I lunge forward.

Emily’s knees give out and her eyes roll back into her head. I catch her inches before she crashes onto the porch. She’s light as I swing her into my arms and her head circles onto my shoulder, reminding me of one of those rag dolls Violet used to play with when we were kids.

“Emily!” Eli’s on top of me, attempting to yank her out of my arms. “Open your eyes.”

Her eyelids flutter, but remain closed as her hand limply clutches my shirt. Eli rams his arms underneath mine and he makes Emily a rope in a tug-of-war. I should let her go. I should want to let her go, but then Emily goes and screws it up for me. “Oz.” 

It was a damn whisper, but I heard my name on her lips and so did Eli. His eyes flash to mine and Cyrus’s words repeat in my mind. That girl trusts you. And screw us both for that.

“She’s exhausted,” I say. “Hasn’t slept at all tonight.”

Eli’s expression hardens as he glares at me. I’ve seen Eli throw a coma-inducing punch for less defiance and I readjust the sleeping girl in my arms. A reminder if he decks me now, he’ll be putting his daughter at risk.

Temporarily surrendering, Eli cups Emily’s face in his hands and angles her toward him. “Emily, please open your eyes.”

She does. It’s barely a crack and they’re completely glazed.

“Everything’s going to be okay,” Eli affirms.

“I want my mom and dad,” she mumbles.

“You’ll see them tomorrow.” Eli pushes a strand of hair from her cheek. “You’re safe here. I promise.”

She rejects Eli by curling into me. Her head fits perfectly in the crook of my neck and I loathe the wave of protective­ness that rumbles through my body. Emily’s fingers tighten their grip near my shoulders and the impulse is to shield her from the guys gawking at this intimate scene. Yeah, this is club business, but Emily never asked for any of this.

Review of Lover Awakened ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #3) by J. R Ward

Lover Awakened ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #3) by J. R Ward

42900

Review: Ok, so I have been dying to read the story of Zsadist ever since I read about him in the first book of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. He is such an amazing character to read about!

But enough of my gushing all over the place.

I feel like this book set the bar for the rest of the series. Because in Lover awakened, it feels that the plot and the characters get more depth and darker. Especially after what happened to Bella, the things she had to go through and what was done to her were just awful. But that’s the thing about her even though these terrible things happened to her, she was able to get through them and get through to Zsadist. Which was the cutest thing ever. This couple is my favorite so far in this series.

My heart just broke for Zsadist when I found out about his past and why he was the way he was. His brother also had me a little heartbroken too. I mean the love that the two of them share is sweet, even though they don’t like to show it. When Zsadist was kind of going nuts when Bella was gone, and they were not together at all at that point. I really liked how you got to see this completely different side to him. Because yeah I get he’s this big strong man or whatever. But I liked seeming that other side of him that is really quite sweet.

Overall I loved this book so frecking much!

Review of Lover Eternal ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #2) by J.R Ward

Lover Eternal ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #2) by J.R Ward

35729

Review: I could not get this book fast enough! Like right after I finished the first book, I got up and went to the book store and got book two through five. I would have gotten more but that was all they had at the time.

I have been trying to figure out what was going on or happening to Rhage, because in the first book and a little in to this book. I did not get what he was doing, at all. Now thanks to the book I get everything now! Well just his story or curse…

Rhage turned out to be a really sweetie while I was reading him. sigh, he was so cool and really super caring with Mary. The best part of the book was Vishous hinting at the kind of women Rhage would end up with. Haha, you wont get this till you read the book and be laughing too!

Mary was so nice and caring throughout the book that she had me crying my eyes out in the last couple of chapters. I mean she is just so much kindness.

John Matthew is also a new character that you cant help but love him and want to keep him. He is also full of many secrets that even he does not know yet.

Great boom overall and is just so good.

Review: This was one of my favorite magna series growing up in high school. It has a great plot that gets mire in-depth and detailed along with the characters getting even funnier as the plot goes on. I also heard the anime for this series is also pretty good too. I’m waiting till I have enough time to just sit down and watch it all the way through to watch it.

Anyway… back to the series, the main characters are great, but the best ones are their friends, the rest of the S.A group. They make me laugh like crazy! They are truly my favorite side characters ever!
