  • Betrayal's Shadow on March 11, 2012

    Betrayal's Shadow - This my friend is my type of read erotica with a plot. Vengeance and Romance. This book is about Guardians whose purpose is to save human souls. This race is becoming extinct after a virus killed many and it is said that they cannot procreate unless its from their destined mate. Turen a loyal Guardian goes in search of answers and finds himself imprisoned. After many weeks of torture he is visited by Mia in his solitary confinement cell. She questions the reality of the situation since the visits takes place when she sleeps. After her many nightly visits bringing food and taking care of his wounds; they start jonesing for each other. Explicit scenes...oh yeah! I swear I was there I don't care if I sound crazy...a portal opened and it was absolutely delectable. Mia's knowledge about the Guardians is not acceptable to Turen's people. Her life will be in danger if she is discovered, but she can be the answer they are seeking if she is not killed first! Honestly, it took me awhile to get into the book. The talk about creatures was just too much. Also, I found myself reading a scene and then quickly into another one without transition. Nevertheless, I gave this book 4 stars because of the romance, Mia's fierce character, and the turn of events toward the end.

  • Pandora's Key on June 25, 2012

    Pandora's Key was entertaining. Molded around Greek Mythology and tons of thrilling action. Evangeline Theopolis lives a normal life with her mother Olivia in Portland, Oregon. Recently, her mother has been having episodes of hallucinations and headaches but its often overlooked by being fatigued. The morning of Evangeline's birthday her mother gives her the family heirloom a necklace with a onyx key; it is tradition to give the necklace to your child on their 16th birthday. The mother has never know the reason behind it due to the fact that she had always been protected by a secret sect. This group wanted the heir to the key to live a normal life and in order to do so knowing less is best. Once Evangeline puts on the necklace she starts seeing a difference in her appearance. I cringed in these areas in the book. Everyone would diss the poor child by making a point of saying how different she looked because she was becoming beautiful. Dayum! Backhanded compliment. She also learns about the line of women in her family and the important role they played which is now her responsibility. Danger lurks and they know of her abilities and now knowledgeable of all secrets she must be on alert. All these drastic changes leaves this teenager to grow up fast and find comfort and shelter where you least except it. Rate this book 3.5. Enjoyable; but wish their was more romance.
  • In a Celandine World on June 25, 2012

    Willow Jane is a talented artist known for her paintings and her eccentricity. She doesn’t have friends which could be attributed to her fiery temper and quick mouth. Since her childhood she has grown to love the presence of someone she cannot see whom she calls Boon. Recently, she started hearing his voice. While her parents have paid for the best therapist to help her on-going imagination but nothing has helped. She set off to live in a small English village, where she meets an elderly couple whom she has grown fond of. They are fundamental in her journey to find herself and learn more about Boon. She realizes that many things she sees are clues; such as the statues, charm bracelets, the weather and gardens. Willow’s Professor shows her painting to a colleague whose feedback and praise leaves her ecstatic. What she doesn’t know is that her painting was like a red alert. Others are now aware that she might be the key to a puzzle no one has been able to decipher. Now she faces another problem when all she wanted was to find a way to be with the man she calls Boon. I gave this book three stars because it wasn’t my cup of tea but I know many others that would enjoy it. It was TOO descriptive and informative for me and trying to understand the dialect of the store owner took away from me trying to get into a flow with the book. I must admit the story is very unique and different from any book out there.
