In His Keeping (Slow Burn #2) by Maya Banks


Book two in the Slow Burn series has hit one out of the park! Honestly book one was a little meh for me, but this one: Fantastic!

The little girl that was sheltered and taken care of can kick ass! After the prologue it was nonstop action at breakneck speed. Beau Devereaux didn’t know what hit him. This seemingly broken beauty walks into his shared offices asking for help and protection walks out amid gun fire and a car chase that feels snatched from the scenes of an action movie. With the added excitement of Arial’s supernatural powers…well, it’s mayhem at its finest!

Just in case you haven’t read Maya Banks before, this is your warning; she is the queen of insta love. This is not a put down, it is just what she does and she does it well. Yes, it can be unbelievable; this time however, it totally works. It’s the adrenaline pumping, fast moving energy that makes 24 hours seem like a week.

All in all, another great read by Maya Banks and I can’t wait for the next installment in the Slow Burn Series!

#1 bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn trilogy with this second book-a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her

Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.

Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

Burned by Karen Marie Moning

My non-review review
(More like my thoughts with some review thrown in :))
Possible spoilers - THIS is your warning!

Mac is back:
Hey girl hey! I missed you!! It’s so good to be back in the funny, quirky, Sinsar Dubh adled mind of MacKayla Lane. It’s been a long wait and I am happy to report that this reader absolutely loved it. Jericho Barrons in all his beastly finery kicks it off with one hell of a sexy flashback! Together these two and their silent conversations remind me, once again, why they are one for my favorite literary couples.

Ryondan and Dani:
Alright, I am just gonna come right out with it. In my opinion you DO NOT have to have read ICED to get this book. Due to an event early on in Burned, age is no longer an issue. This is fiction, PN fiction at that. If you haven’t read ICED, then by all means give it a go. Just don’t form an opinion on other peoples, form your own. If you read it and didn’t like it, no worries - there are big shifts in Burned. I think this is in part to get those alienated fans back? Who knows?

The 9 getting their own books:
OH. MAH. GOOGLY. GOODNESS!! They all need their own book. Lor needs his, like, yesterday! And Kasteo? Well, color me intrigued as hell.

Cliffies that will make you smile:
The finial pages in Burned are a big treat! Mac has a fantastic discovery that leads her to a voyeurs dream come true. It does end in a cliffy, but one that had me grinning from ear to ear.

Dad issues, growing up and growing oldler:
To end my non-review review, I feel the need to say this to the universe. It’s very evident (to me anyway) that the author has had some life changing moments/events while writing Burned. The stories Mac shares about her father are ones of a daughter looking back and cherishing her time with him. As a woman in an age bracket where parental time becomes limited, I really took to heart the sweetness of it. In the afterword of Burned KMM shares some touching words about her dad.

All said and done, was it worth the wait? IMHO Yes it was. I missed these guys and the way KMM writes. I wasn’t lost and the read felt like coming home to a group of friends I really missed. I hope the next book comes sooner rather than later but, I won’t pout or be angry. I will wait patiently and know life happens, people change, and authors need to feed the muse.

As for now? I think I am going to start Burned all over again :)

5 Magical and Heartwarming stars!!*****

Such a wonderful and delightful read! A lovely tale of a feisty apple tree, the Waverley family who are touched by magic and the interesting lives they live in the small town of Bascom. Endearing and creative characters and a heartfelt story sprinkled with a smidgen of humor. Just loved it...
I discovered this author last year for the first time when I read Lost Lake... and I just couldn't wait to read something new from her. This is book two of this series but can definitely be read as a stand alone. As soon as I finished this one I went and one-clicked and bought book one... I need more! :)
Her stories are such a successful blend of the magical world with the real one. The Waverley's are just ordinary people doing ordinary things but they each have small magical gifts that connect them and bond them as family. I particularly connected with Sydney and her daughter Bay. I have a 15 year old daughter so I could definitely relate to their relationship and the growing pains that they were both experiencing.
My favorite, favorite character though was Evanelle... I smiled so much at her querky little gift. When she stops by to give you something you best pay attention because it means something! Her relationship with roommate Fred was very heartwarming.
This author is definitely always going to be an auto read for me... her stories and writing style really do click with my personality and what I love in a story.
Can't wait for more...

From the New York Times bestselling author of Garden Spells comes a story of the Waverley family, in a novel as sparkling as the first dusting of frost on new-fallen leaves...
It's October in Bascom, North Carolina, and autumn will not go quietly. As temperatures drop and leaves begin to turn, the Waverley women are made restless by the whims of their mischievous apple tree... and all the magic that swirls around it. But this year, first frost has much more in store.
Claire Waverley has started a successful new venture, Waverley’s Candies. Though her handcrafted confections—rose to recall lost love, lavender to promote happiness and lemon verbena to soothe throats and minds—are singularly effective, the business of selling them is costing her the everyday joys of her family, and her belief in her own precious gifts.
Sydney Waverley, too, is losing her balance. With each passing day she longs more for a baby— a namesake for her wonderful Henry. Yet the longer she tries, the more her desire becomes an unquenchable thirst, stealing the pleasure out of the life she already has.
Sydney’s daughter, Bay, has lost her heart to the boy she knows it belongs to…if only he could see it, too. But how can he, when he is so far outside her grasp that he appears to her as little more than a puff of smoke?
When a mysterious stranger shows up and challenges the very heart of their family, each of them must make choices they have never confronted before. And through it all, the Waverley sisters must search for a way to hold their family together through their troublesome season of change, waiting for that extraordinary event that is First Frost.
Lose yourself in Sarah Addison Allen's enchanting world and fall for her charmed characters in this captivating story that proves that a happily-ever-after is never the real ending to a story. It’s where the real story begins.

Unexpected Eden The Eden Series # 1 By: Rhenna Morgan

Dictatorship of the Dress by Jessica Topper


From the author of my best book choice of 2013, Louder Than Love, comes an all new story of learning to love, embrace, and let go. The past needs to be dealt with in order to learn how to live in the present.

Blown away: that’s what I was after reading. There is just that certain something Jessica Topper possesses that transforms her books into a memorable journey on the page. Once again, I am left pondering and rereading a story I hesitate to let go of.  

Laney Hudson is dragging her mother’s wedding dress across country in time for her wedding in Hawaii. It becomes more than a dress along the trip. It transforms into a metaphor for her life and the weight, baggage, and guilt Laney carries.

Noah Ridgewood is on his way to a bachelor party: his bachelor party, in Vegas. Finding himself at a real crossroads and rethinking his plans, he mistakenly judges the wedding dress-carrying woman across from him as just another bride-zilla on her way to make another man miserable.

A series of encounters in different airports, bad weather, and misunderstanding lead this unlikely pair to sharing a hotel room for the night. The freedom created by having a person to unload on has both Noah and Laney revealing bits and pieces of their past, and forming an understanding of self and each other neither has experienced before.

It’s a wonderful version of a story that has been done before, but with the talented Jessica Topper, it feels fresh and mature. I absolutely loved it!

 From Jessica Topper, author of Louder than Love, comes the story of second chances, missed flights, and a woman ruled by her mother’s wedding dress.

As the dress-bearer for her mother’s wedding, comic book artist Laney Hudson has a lot more baggage than the bulky garment bag she’s lugging from New York to Hawaii. Laney is determined to prove she’s capable of doing something right, but running chores for her mom’s fairytale nuptials is proving to be a painfully constant reminder of her own lost love.

So when she’s mistaken for the bride and bumped up to first class, Laney figures some stress-free luxury is worth a harmless white lie. Until the flight crew thinks that the man sitting next to her is Laney’s groom, and her little fib turns into a hot mess.

The last thing Noah Ridgewood needs is some dress-obsessed diva landing in his first-class row. En route to his Vegas bachelor party, the straight-laced software designer knows his cold feet have nothing to do with the winter weather.

When a severe storm leaves them grounded in Chicago and they find themselves booked into the last available honeymoon suite, Laney and her in-flight neighbor have little choice but to get better acquainted. Now, as her bridal mission hangs in the balance, perhaps the thing Laney gets right is a second chance at love.


 

Beauty and The Bookworm by Nick Pageant


Outrageously funny, adorably cute, and a laugh-out-loud fun time read. It’s a short read, but an uproarious one. A librarian taking in a sunny afternoon on a park bench with his trashy novel meets an athletic, charismatic physical trainer. Two completely different people with totally different hobbies and friends find out that they really are the perfect match. As stated before, it’s a short read so an in-depth review will just give it all away. I’ll just say that I giggled, snorted, and bought the second book immediately after I hit the last page.

Adding it to my favorites list!

Hero by Samantha Young



I first fell in love with Samantha Young’s writing style after reading On Dublin Street.
It was so well written and wonderfully put together that I immediately became a fan. Now an all new book is getting ready to hit the streets. Psssst….It’s just as good!

Alexa and Caine have such a steamy, intense build up that I was up ‘til the wee hours. It’s a strong, impulsive connection between these two that just keeps building: angry office encounters, smartass retorts, and lusty up-against-the wall rebuttals. Fabulous!

All sexiness aside, the heart of the story is two people recovering from the mistakes of their parents. Each has built their own walls in order to protect themselves and the lives they live. Learning that Alexa and Caine’s past are horrifically linked together changes the initial chemistry they both feel. Why must children pay for the sins of the fathers? They don’t, but understanding that isn’t easy. Chemistry is chemistry, and try as you might there is no changing that.

Here’s the breakdown: So, this first 75% you had me hook line and sinker. The next part: a little too must angsty for my taste and not enough backbone on Alexa’s part, in my opinion. The ending? Well, that just kicked it up a notch. Now we’re cooking! :)

All in all, a great read with the heat I had forgotten Samantha Young does so well!
