#ReleaseDay #Review – Into the Light by Aleatha Romig @AleathaRomig

Into the Light (The Light, #1)

synopsis

Sara Adams awakes blind, unable to remember the most basic details of her life, but her darkness seems a blessing when she discovers the terrors of The Light.

Stella Montgomery investigates the news on the mean streets of Detroit, where she’s noticed a disturbing trend: young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella investigates—despite warnings from her police detective boyfriend—following a twisted trail that leads her through the city’s most dangerous and forsaken precincts. There she uncovers something more sinister than she could have imagined: a shadowy organization known as The Light, led by the enigmatic Father Gabriel.

As Sara struggles to understand her place in the strange world she’s awakened to—an oppressive cult demanding unquestioning obedience—and her feelings for Jacob, the husband she can’t recall and whose harsh and tender attentions confuse and beguile her, Stella risks all to discover the truth. But enlightenment always comes with a price…

angies review

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

OMG My heart is beating like mad outta my chest.  AHHH.  I need people.  I need a support group.  I need to TALK ABOUT THIS BOOK!! Now all of you people who love Aleatha’s dark stuff…this isn’t really dark and not the DARK DARK like her other books.  As I told my scaredy pants bestie, this is a book you can read.  This book is a mystery and suspense.  I kept turning the pages to know “Why?” or “Who?” and then it was “but are they bad?” or even “ but why are they doing it?”  This book kept me going.  When I THOUGHT I had stuff figured out…BOOM I was wrong and then the new twist made me read even harder and faster.  BOOM another bombshell and I kinda thought maybe I know where this will be headed but wow was I so off base and ugh….SEE Support group is needed.  People you need to know what is my head and it needs to come out…..do you know how hard this review is going to be!!?????  Spoiler Free it shall be but OMG PEOPLE!!!  BUY THE BOOK and then PLEASE for the love of Father Gabriel and The Light, talk to me!!!

I FLoved the book and how we had multiple POV’s because honestly you need them.   I loved reading Sara’s struggle to understand why if she is a member of The Light then why is her memory gone?  Then reading Stella’s parts of the story and her desperate need to find her best friend who disappeared out of nowhere.

The story flows sooooo well and you learn which characters to be weary.  You also learn quickly who is good and who is not good.  Who to trust and who to conceal your truths from.

Blurb:

Aleksio
Don’t look at me like that. So trusting.
Like you think I’m not a monster.
Like I won’t wrap your hair in my fist and bend you to my will.
Like I won’t sacrifice you, piece by piece, to save my brother.
I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have because every time you look at me, you see somebody good. That friend who died.
And when you look at me like that, I die again.

Mira
I spent years making myself invisible.
A good girl, apart from the noise.
Then you came back, beautiful and deadly in your Armani suit.
Don’t look at me like you still know me, you say.
But I remember your smile and those sunny days.
Before they lowered your small casket into the ground.
Before they told us the prince was dead.

EXCERPT

The way he uses me is violent. Primitive. Demeaning. And all I can think is, don’t stop.

He warned me he was going to be rough. He warned me I’d feel alarmed when he shoved his cock all the way down my throat. I was ready for that.

I wasn’t ready for the names he would call me.

Or to be so wildly turned on by it all.

It’s as if we crossed over to the right side of wrong, and everything is too hot, and his cock is too huge, and I have too many clothes. I want him to lay me out and use me. I want him to do anything to me. Everything to me.

I pull back, knowing he’ll shove my head back onto his cock, and he does, fingers digging into my scalp.

My nipples rub on his legs, heating—from the friction, maybe—and I nearly get off. It’s pure madness. Usually I need a lot of help.

But this is Aleksio being Aleksio. He always went too far, and I always loved him for it.

I feel when he’s going to come.

“No teeth. Don’t you fucking…” He jerks into my throat. The orgasm goes on forever. He holds my head firmly in his grip, panting.

I move my tongue a tiny bit and he clutches my hair. “God! Don’t move.”

I feel dazed. Heart pounding. This was the wildest and most powerful sexual experience of my life and I didn’t even come.

“Okay,” he whispers after a while, gently extracting himself from me. I sit on the coffee table, wiping my mouth and striking the tears from my cheeks.

His eyes shine, and I know he felt power of what just happened. The mad connection. Deep down, I know that neither of us have been here before. He reaches out and brushes my hair from my forehead.

That’s when I see the gun in his other hand, dark and cold and black.

He was holding a gun? Why? Why would he need a gun?

“Don’t worry, the safety was on.” He puts it aside, eyes averted, and then he swipes his phone off the floor. He presses something. A red light goes off.

My mouth falls open. “What the hell? What did you do?”

“Saved your finger.”

Red. A record light.

He tucks himself in, zips himself up.

He recorded us? Why record us like that? With him holding a gun? Why would he want to make it look like he was being a violent asshole, forcing me to do that?

Suddenly everything in the room gets too bright, too real. “No!” I go for the phone.

He grabs my wrist, hauling me up off the couch with him. “Leave it.”

“You’re going to show that recording to him? No!” I try to twist free. “You can’t!”

He can and he will.

I’m flooded with shame for how much I enjoyed it. And Aleksio made a movie out of it! To frighten Dad!

“Fuck!” I jerk and twist, trying to get at the phone. “You can’t! Please.”

“Sorry.”

“Oh my God!”

That’s when Viktor comes in. He regards us calmly, like it’s no big deal Aleksio is manhandling me. Aleksio tosses the phone to his brother. “Play it.”

“No! Don’t!”

Viktor taps the screen.

“Don’t watch it!” I go for Viktor now, but Aleksio has me.

“You can’t send Dad that clip.”

“We’re not sending him your bloody finger, isn’t that what you wanted?”

Aleksio. So cool, so smooth. Like it meant nothing to him. And me like an idiot, getting off on his rough treatment. Making myself vulnerable to him. Showing him something I never even showed myself. I want to die.

Viktor pockets the phone. “Her severed finger would be more extreme. More urgency. But this is more pain for the old man.”

“You guys are animals!”

Aleksio tightens hold on me. “You need to be done going crazy or we’ll handcuff and gag you.”

“You have to erase it!”

“You prefer the finger? That’s what you’re saying here?”

I trusted Aleksio. I followed him somewhere extreme, and he ripped my heart open. Cutting off my finger seems tame in comparison.

“You’re thinking about it? Fuck! No. Fuck that.” He turns to Viktor. “Call and see if the sack of shit’s awake.”

#Review – Saving a Legend by Sarah Robinson

Saving a Legend (Kavanagh Legends, #2)

synopsis

Praised by Penelope Ward as “a unique story line with multiple layers to it,” Sarah Robinson’s Saving a Legend goes another round with the brooding Kavanagh brothers: MMA fighters who won’t call it quits in the ring, or in romance.

His family’s gym has produced a roster of mixed martial arts legends, but so far Kieran Kavanagh hasn’t followed in their footsteps. After a brawl lands him in jail, Kieran is assigned to work at a center for at-risk youth. Though given a second chance, Kieran’s simply going through the motions—until he meets one very special kid, Shea Doherty, and falls hard for her very beautiful, very grown-up big sister, Fiona. The trouble is, Kieran’s best opening moves are getting him nowhere fast.

Fiona Doherty has too many responsibilities to fool around, especially now that she has custody of Shea. Sure, she’d love to find a devoted partner. But she won’t jeopardize her sister’s happiness—or risk revealing her tortured past—on a love-’em-and-leave-’em type of guy like Kieran . . . so it’s up to him to prove her wrong. As Fiona spends more time with Kieran, she starts to see a softer side of the reckless warrior. Now she must admit that when it comes to the possibility of real love, well . . . there’s a fighting chance.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

angies review

 

I received a copy from Netgalley for an honest review.

Kieran…Sigh…Wait a second I need a few more sighs….Ok I can begin.

This book is about sweet Kieran.  Now lets get the family dynamics outta the way,  Kieran is the other twin to Kane.  There are several brothers in the MMA fighting family but Kieran doesn’t really love it.  He has the most potential but its just not his thing and theeeen he made bad choices.  These choices land him prison for a stint but now he is ready.  One day Kieran stops to grab some flowers for his mom and he sees HER.  He cant stop thinking about her or looking at her…there is just something about her.

Fiona is not your everyday woman.  She adopted her sister after her mother died.  Now her sister is not just any young child but she suffers from Autism.  Fiona cant handle her day to day life let alone try dating.  That is just not in the cards for her.  So she lives her life by working and taking care of her little sister. Kieran will not give up.  He even played a bit “dirty” by having his mother come to his aide.  His mother is prolly the most amazing person EVAH!!

I loved the story and I liked how “real” the issues of autism were plus the fact of how it affects families.

#Reviews – The Star Blitz by Jessie Lane and ML Pahl

The Burning Star
Jessie Lane, M.L. Pahl
(Star, #1)
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Seventeen-year-old Kay’s journey of a lifetime started in the woods where she met a beautiful man … along with a monster. The chance encounter led her to an unbelievable world that shouldn’t have existed, a place where myths and fairytales were real and, in some cases, deadly.

Kay knew she would have to brave this new world if she hoped to find a cure for her terminal cancer.

With a strange yet beautiful cast of characters, Kay uncovered truths that would change her life forever. However, before it was all over, she discovered she wasn’t the only one with problems.

Yet another seventeen-year-old young woman was fighting for her life.

Kira had grown up in a magical world. Despite this, her life had not been filled with many good things. She considered her empty, emotional solitude the only positive aspect of her life and fought daily battles to escape abuse and torture.

Trained to be an expert assassin, she was charged with kidnapping Kay and delivering her to Kira’s master, Lord Donovan.

As the two young women set forth on their journeys, their paths would cross in unimaginable ways. There was only one question that remained: who would come out alive?

angies review

I received this book from the author for an honest review. I rated it a 3.75 but rounded up.

I read another paranormal series by these awesome ladies so I jumped at the chance to read this one as well. I have only read one other Fae book so I was excited to give it a read.

This book starts out meeting Kay who is 17 year old dying of cancer. Her mom is a bit over protective of her but who wouldnt understand that right? I mean her daughter is dying. Well Kay walks through the woods and meets hottie Ryan who protects her from a feral dog…or wait is it a dog??? So the following day she is geting ready for her date with hottie Ryan WHEN hottie Nick shows up to put in her dish. WHAT and he too wants to date her?? How in the world can a girl get so lucky. I mean 17 year old never been taken on a date or kissed VIRGIN with 2 hotties chasing after her!! SOOO it seems all is not as it seems. Ryan is a Fae…royal Fae at that, and thinks that Kay has some “other” part of her as well. So a little charm spell and BOOM Kay is a princess of another Fae family……So we begin the journey of Kay finding her true family and meeting some awesome friends along the way…..Raffe is my favorite character by the way……

Kira is a girl who has been through it all. Her adoptive father is not a nice man and uses her as a weapon. He has trained her to be an assassin and wants her to kidnap Kay….but why? So we get to see Kira and the awful life she is leading UNTIL he meets Prince Kane. She sees kindness but accepting kindness is a weakness and Kira cannot be weak. So at the end of the book it just END and the cluffhanger is AMAZING!! I have to say i wondered IF Kira was going to be what she is….wanna know??? Well read the book people!! I got the sign up for the second book and and hurry and signed up. I want to know…scratch that…need to know what happens to Kay and Kira!!

The Frozen Star
Jessie Lane, M.L. Pahl
(Star, #2)
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

The journey continues …

Kay discovered secrets, lies, shocking truths, and even love in a strange new world hidden from humans. Everything she thought she knew was turned upside down when she found out three things: she wasn’t human; she had a power she couldn’t control; and there was a possibility she might have found a way to cure her deadly cancer by using that very same power.

Just when she was on the precipice of gaining everything she wanted and saving her own life, tragedy struck. Would she be able to fight her way back to Ryan and save herself in the process?

Kira had lived a terrifying life of servitude and abuse under Lord Donovan and his son, Cole. It was an existence that had stripped away her emotions and reasons to keep fighting.

Just when she thought freedom was within reach, Lord Donovan struck again, ruining her plans and almost killing her. When she awoke from her injuries, it was to stunning revelations that would change her life forever, changes she wasn’t entirely sure she wanted.

Persistent individuals, such as Prince Kane, refused to let her walk away, though. Would she embrace all of her sudden fortune? Or would she walk away from those who needed her most, forsaking their acceptance and love?

WARNING: This is a upper ya/young adult/new adult fictional story that includes some explicit language, graphic violence, and mild sexual situations. Recommended for ages sixteen and up.

*This book is a re-release and revision from the original book published in 2012. Please be aware that some things have been added, deleted or changed.*

angies review

I

received this book from the author for an honest review.

I fell in love with the first book in this series. I loved the whole Fae world and the mystery of Kay. Who is she? What is going on. Then we meet Kira and we KNOW she is important why? Well we get the questions to those in book 1 but they leave us perplexed waiting for book2.

So this book begins with Kay being held captive by Lord Donovan. Kira finds out she is a Princess ANNND kay’s twin sister. Kane is right there to snuggle with this princess. I have to admit i loved the scene where Kane shows Kira his wings…..if you read book 1 you know the significance of that…It defo made a SIGH…….The two start to build a relationship and are defo heading in the right direction.

Ryan is LOST without Kay. He knows she is it for him. She is his soul mate. They two have a mind connection which ends up helping Kay through some tough times. Kay is being tortured by Donovan and we find out why he wants the Twins……he is cray cray for sure.

Cole….MAN DO WE HATE HIM!! He is very present in book 1 and book 2. Lets just say, he is still a super special Fae…please read that with sarcasm!!!

The twins find out what their special gifts are and that they need another family member to help them to destroy the Lord Donovan. It is a really cool story line. Skye is the family member that they need who ends up being Nick, the werewolfs, fated mate. I loved the scene when he finally admits that she is the mate he knew would come….but then something happens and Nick is very hurtful to his Fae…..SNIFF SNIFF.

I can’t wait for the next part of the novel…..The War is defo getting ready to start. Lets hope that the girls to figure out how to destroy Donovan before he destroys the world!!

THE BURNING STAR SNEAK PEEK:

I stood there frozen, knowing that I would probably die because of this wretched creature, when all of a sudden I saw the quick movement of an arm bringing down the point of the knife, slicing towards the large creature’s skull. The animal’s enraged screams ripped through the woods surrounding us.

My brain tried to analyze what was happening before me as I stood still as a statue and watched as the monster started to crumble away like something that had been burnt from the inside out and then fell apart.

This can’t be real.

I looked up from the ashes into the face of an angel.

He’s not an angel; he’s just a guy. Right?

He was staring at me as if he had just seen me sprout a second head. I was staring back at him like he was somehow related to those alien birds outside my window. My mouth flapped open to scream again, but before a sound could escape, the world faded to black, and I fainted.

At least I didn’t scream again.

When I opened my eyes, two ethereal blue eyes were staring back at me. My head was throbbing like a bass drum in a marching band, and it felt like my head might split in two from the pounding headache.

“Are you okay?” he asked me, his voice strong but sweet.

Before I could stop my mouth from saying anything ridiculous, I replied, “Are you an angel? Did I finally die and go to Heaven?”

He bellowed a laugh while I blushed a shade that was more than likely lobster red. I smacked myself in the forehead and tried to hide my face behind my hand. What a brilliant way to make a first impression on an extremely hot guy. That’s when it hit me.

The past few moments of events flooded my brain again and I started to panic.

“Wait a minute! What was that thing and how in the world did it just, just—”

“The dog? I had to cut it with my knife to scare it away. It wasn’t a mortal wound though. He took off through the woods to escape. Sorry if you’re one of those animal lovers, but I was afraid it might kill one of us.”

I shook my head to try to clear it. “No, no, no, no. That was no dog. Well, it was at first, but then it became something else. It was black and huge and had those red eyes…”

Before I finished my sentence, I looked up at him to see complete shock and amazement on his face. I had never seen anyone look so bewildered.

“Don’t look at me like that! I know what I saw! Now what was that thing and what happened to it? It didn’t run off; I saw you kill it. And I would point to the body to prove it, but it, well, it fell apart or something.”

In a split second, the shock had disappeared from his handsome face, replaced by something more masked and calculating. “I’m sorry, but you’re quite mistaken. I didn’t kill it. I only wounded it. And it was a dog. Are you sure you didn’t hit your head or something? I’m afraid you might be having some kind of hallucination.” Somehow, when he said it, it didn’t seem as scary or grotesque as it did when I played what I saw back in my head.

#Review – A Lover’s Lament by: K.L. Grayson and B.T. Urruela

26166418

synopsis

In a matter of seconds my entire world changed, and it was in that moment that I stopped living and simply began to exist.

In my grief, I sent a letter to the first boy I ever loved. I hoped in writing it I’d find some peace from the nightmare I was living, some solace in my anger.

I didn’t expect him to write back. I wasn’t prepared for his words, and I certainly wasn’t ready for the impact this soldier would have on my life. A deep-rooted hate transformed into friendship, and then molded into a love like I’d never known before.

Sergeant Devin Ulysses Clay did what I couldn’t: he put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, restoring my faith in humanity and teaching me how to live again.

But now that I’m whole, I have a decision to make. Do I return to my life as I knew it and the fiancé I left behind, or do I walk away from it all for the only man to ever break my heart?

***

I’ve been living in hell, but you won’t hear me complain.

These men depend on me, as I do them, and this brotherhood is the only family I’ve ever known.

The Army saved me from a callous mother and a life on the wrong side of the tracks that was quickly spiraling out of control. So unlike most of the men in my platoon, going home wasn’t something I longed for.

I was content overseas, spending my days defending this country that gave me my life back. Fighting became my new normal … until her.

A letter from Katie Devora—a letter that I almost didn’t open. Her words put a fire back inside of me that I didn’t know I’d lost. She gave me hope during a time when I was fighting every day just to stay alive, and now it’s time I fight for her.

Melinda's Review

I read the book as part of the Coming Home Anthology.  I could not pass up a collection of Military books and plus the money went to a good cause. I am enjoying being introduced to authors I have never read before. K.L. Grayson and B.T. Urruela did not disappoint. They did a great job pulling me into the story and made me feel like I was there as everything unfolded and felt every emotion Devon and Katie were going through.

Katie and Devon have been friends since she busted his lip in the first grade. You see Katie was a tomboy and didn’t back down when pushed far enough. Katie and Devon grew up and into each other’s arms. However, their love would not be strong enough to keep them together when his mother moved them 800 miles away from Katie leaving Katie devastated and heartbroken. Devon didn’t want to go but knew he was not the guy for Katie she deserved better in his eyes.

After a life changing event in Katie’s life she found herself staring at a list of solder’s name to write to but the only name she could see was Devon’s the question was does she write him or one of the other solder’s on this sheet.  WELLLLL she not only decided to write to Devon and unload everything that she felt and was going through. What she did not expect was to have Devon write back.  The words these two had for each other were powerful. She had her own life but having Devon back getting a second chance could change her entire world.

The chemistry between Devon and Katie was amazing. To watch them build back trust and learn who each other were now that they were no longer kids just through the letters, emails, and video chats was great. Not only did I enjoy Devon and Katie but seeing the interactions between Devon and/or Katie’s and their best friend Navas, Magie, and even Bailey Katie’s sister interactions was wonderful.  The last chapters and epilogue had me in tears after everything these two had been through now this NO NO NO! Great job and loved the duel POV. Wonderful second chance story you never know how long you have so make the most of what you have with those you love.

My favorite line in the book:

“Love doesn’t have and expiration date, Katie. There is no cookie cutter for it, and there sure as hell aren’t instructions. It just is…”
