  • Survival, a YA Paranormal Romance (The Guardians of Vesturon Series, Book #1) on Feb. 25, 2012

    I recieved this ebook for review but that has in no way effected my opinion. Summary: Maddie has had several horrible things happen to her in the past. She has lost both of her parents and has decided to spend this christmas in the woods hinking. She is attacked by a man and barely escapes. She is found very close to death in the woods and is nursed back to health. Maddie awakens to Ryne the leader of the group. There is an instant connection, but Ryne is not of this world. He is a first born son of the planet Vesturon. My Thoughts: I just loved this book from start to finish. I could not stop reading it. The chemistry between Maddie and Ryne is phenominal. I am certainly looking forward to diving into book two, Especially since there was a cliffhanger at the end that has left me dying to know what will happen. I definately highly recomend this title. I will also be looking for more titles by A.M Hargrove in the future.

    *I recieved this book for review but that has in no way effected my opinion.* While this book has a lot of religion within its pages I absolutely loved it. I normally avoid books dealing with religion like they were a plague, simply because it doesn't do it for me. I often feel like I am being preached to but that was far from the case here. The story is about TJ who is a young gay man that struggles with his religion. Why would God make him gay if it is supposed to be wrong? This question is one that I am sure has wracked the brains of many members of the LGBT community that have come from religious homes. TJ is in love with his best friend Ryan and has been for a long time. When the world as they know it comes to an end TJ and Ryan finally admit they have feelings for each other. Ryan tells TJ he never looked for love with all of the girls he had been with because it was always TJ for him. At this point I had very high hopes that maybe, in the face of the apocalypse these wonderful guys would be able to find love and happiness with each other. The "Big Bad" in this book is difficult to label. In the book they are called "Neighbors" to me they are pretty close to zombies. They are so much more than what we think of as zombies though. As it says in the blurb.."The Christian rapture occurs and the now soulless bodies of Christians are left to terrorize all those left behind." Basically people are fine one minute and the next they are attacking those around them. They DO NOT infect people they bite like typical zombies do. They speak, they rape, they maime, they kill. They are soulless bodies with no morals. All that is left is a body and whatever "evil" was in them. I really don't want to spoil the book for anyone so I am going to avoid any more plot points. I do feel the need to say that you simply must read this book! There is NO sex in it, so if you are skittish about reading a M/M romance because of that then this is definitely one to try. Oh but please keep in mind that this is like a zombie book and we all know in zombie books not everyone survives! Logan Kain has done an excellent job with this book. I could not stop reading it and had it read from start to finish in just a few hours. I laughed and cried at times but was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading this book. I certainly hope Logan has many more stories to share us!
