There's really only one word for 'Amaretto Flame' and that's FANTASTIC. Sammie's characters draw you in and keep you interested. Her idea of magick and all of the different powers that come from it are unique and intriguing. I can't wait for her next novel to become available. The possibilites for stories within the Eagleton Coven are endless. Great job, Sammie!
Meant to Be (The Saving Angels book 1)
on July 23, 2011
'Meant to Be' is a one of those stories that eases you in then sucks you up and leaves you wanting more. I found the characters great. I mean, really, who hasn't felt like an outcast at one point in their lives. It's easy to imagine what Krista is going through even if you don't have overwhelmingly strong emotions that cause you to puke in public. The fact that she's had the same dream every night for as long as she can remember makes you wonder what it's all about. Enter some new characters and the stage is set for letting us know what in the world is happening to this poor girl. This story had some great twists and kept me entertained which is what I'm looking for when I'm reading a book. I can't wait to see what Tiffany King comes up with for the sequel to this story. This book gets a great five stars from me.
Exiled (The Protector Book 1)

Fast paced, exciting, and imaginative. These are just three of the words that popped into my head as I read this novel. The world that M.R. Merrick paints for his readers is dark and frightening with small rays of light to keep you hopeful for a happy ending. I love books that end leaving you wanting more. The fact that this story is the first in a series is fantastic. I can't wait to see what happens next to Chase and company. I give this novel a big five stars.

An undercover cop, a killer you can feel for, a mob story set in our time, and an author who is able to tell a story that captures you from the moment you start to read. For Nothing is a tale that grabs your attention and holds it until the last page.
Nicholas Denmon does a fantastic job of telling both sides of the story. I found myself wishing that Alex, the undercover cop, would get to the bottom of what was happening so that he could find the peace he sought. At the same time, I was rooting for Rafael, the mob assassin, hoping he'd manage to stay alive through this mob war. The twists and turns in this novel were many and surprising. More than once I set my Kindle down and thought, oh my god! Just when I thought I might have the ending figured out, boom! Nicholas dropped a new twist on me.
Another of the things I really liked about this story was the descriptions. I have never before read about a person being shot, the detail and feeling of it written so precisely, that I touched my chest, sure I knew what that character was going through.
And the ending! Really, Mister Denmon, it is not nice to end a story that way!! Thankfully, Buffalo Soldiers, the second book in this series is coming out March 20.
So, what did I rate this book? 5 stars with no hmmming or hawwwing needed. I can't wait for the second one to come out so I can see if my guess is right about the ending!
Rafael continued his walk to the office. A block later he reached inside his long overcoat and pulled out a wad of twenty-dollar bills. Without breaking step, he snatched one out of his money clip, reinserted the wad, and folded the twenty into a smooth crease. As he rounded the corner of the block, there was an old beggar. Predictable. The man sent his cup up to Rafael. Rontego dropped the twenty into his cup and started to walk away. I don't shit where I sleep, he thought. As an afterthought, Rafael turned around and grabbed the man by the collar of his welfare duds. With a quick yank, Rafael stood nose to nose with the homeless man. "Take that money and eat something for fuck's sake! I swear to whoever you call God that you will meet him if I catch you buying a drink with that twenty."
