November 2014

 

Here we go again with a monthly round-up for November. I can’t believe we almost done with this year. But I got quite a few books in this year. Maybe not as many the last few months but overall I got done 120 books so far this year. That is more than I thought I would 🙂 

Anyways, here is my list for November, I will try something new and add the synopsis here and than will add the link to Goodreads, my rating and the link to my review. If you interested in the books the buy links will be in the review as always 🙂 

Thank you and happy reading 🙂

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

White Hot Kiss

Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Synopsis:Stone Cold Touch

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

In Deep (In Deep #1) by Kella McKinnon

In DeepSynopsis:

Brielle

What would you do if you met a man that made you burn like wildfire from the inside out?  Burn so hot that with one touch you forgot to breathe?

And if you knew that he had dangerous secrets?  Would you be able to walk away?

I couldn’t.  As strong as I know I am, I kept going back for more of him.  That body… those eyes…

I saw him for the first time on my very first day in Vegas, and even then I think a part of me knew, because I couldn’t look away.  It was like that moment when you see something flying towards you and you know it’s going to hit you before you can ever move out of the way, so you just watch, transfixed, as it crashes into you.  Cristos Vicario: owner of the illustrious Adagio hotel and casino and reputed billionaire playboy.  He sure as hell wasn’t what he seemed on the surface.  That man had secrets.  No one knew what a dark and dangerous world he lived in, and when I finally saw him for what he was, it was already far too late.  I found myself inextricably tied to him forever.  The course of my life altered.  My entire world changed forever as he took away my freedom and gave me the key to my dreams in one fell swoop.

How could I have known that the one man who should have been my greatest nightmare would become the one thing I couldn’t live without?  And all I had to do was forgive him…

 

 Cristos

 I was only living for one thing, one goal, one endgame… until I saw Brielle.  And when I touched her, it was all over for me… I just didn’t know it yet.  Not until I broke all of my rules for her, one after another, and that still wasn’t enough.  I wanted more.

I wanted it all.  Yeah, what I did to her was pretty much unforgivable.  I know that now.  Some small part of me might have known it then, too, but it didn’t matter.  I had to hold on to her.  I would have done anything to keep her… and I did.

Now I’ve put her in danger, dragged her into my world, and I don’t know whether to push her away or hold her tighter.  Letting her go would be the right thing to do… but every time I try to do the right thing… I can’t.

 When I take her, it’s always hard and desperate, as if she’ll disappear if I can’t make her feel the same things I feel…  if I can’t force her to care about me enough that she’ll look past everything else and see into my heart.

Last night, after she fell asleep, still wrapped in my arms, I rested my lips against the top of her head and inhaled the scent of her as she slept.  Trusting me, even though she shouldn’t.  “I don’t deserve you”, I whispered.  “But I want you.  God, I want you so badly.”

A Darker Past by Jus Accardo

A Darker PastSynopsis:

The past is Darker than they thought…

Between helping her mother with the Darker Agency and laying the smack down on monster baddies, Jessie Darker puts the “normal” in paranormal. But lately, things have gotten a little crazy…even for a smart-assed half-demon teenage girl.

For starters, Jessie’s been contracted into fifty-five years of annoying servitude. To a demon. Then there’s Lukas Scott, her sexy new boyfriend. Once the former incarnation of Wrath, he’s been going through some…uh, changes. Like residual anger. And trading chaste hangouts for lusty make-out sessions.

But it’s when Lukas and Jessie accidentally release a Very Nasty Demon that things get really bad, setting into motion a chain of death and mayhem that threatens both Earth and the Shadow Realm. Jessie has exactly four days to fix it…before all of Hell breaks loose.

When she’s kidnapped and taken into the Ruins as a pawn in a dispute involving her boyfriend, Bryce, her ideal world is turned upside down. What she learns while in the Ruins shakes her faith in everything she’s ever known, from Bryce, to her family, and even the Union itself.

Now Evan must choose whether to stay with Cyrus, the sexy, resourceful survivor who believes she’s in the Ruins for a reason, or return to the only life she’s ever known. But when she stumbles upon a dangerous plot that threatens both worlds, her decision could tear her apart.

A Beautiful Star by Lilliana Anderson

A Beautiful StarSynopsis:

When Jonathan decided to help Lisa, he was trying to atone in some way for his past sins. He certainly wasn’t expecting to be pulled into a night full of hiding out from the press with a journalist called Sandra Haegen, and almost being choked to death by a rockstar in love with his ex.

When Sandra decided to help Lisa by feeding Perry, she was just trying to be a good person. She also wasn’t expecting to spend the night hiding from the press. Even more so, she wasn’t expecting to spend the night with one of Australia’s hottest young actors, Jonathan Masters. She also wasn’t expecting to save his life.

And that’s just the beginning.

From there, these two must find a way live with the past and look to the future – no matter what the personal cost.

Bound  by Melody Anne

Synopsis:Bound

Relinquish Control has just opened its doors in Seattle, and already we are not shy for customers. Relinquish Control is an exclusive escort service catering to the most distinguished customers, from business magnates to foreign royalty. This proven and well-established international business offers an elite selection of women who are ready and willing to attend to your every need with no questions asked. Confidentiality is our special obligation.

Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age twenty-four. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother; the medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had, and the state then took away her brother, now age fourteen. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home.

When she’s approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he’s been placed in.

Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it’s nothing but a façade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him.

When he and his two brothers were six, eight and ten, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they’ve tried to forget, leaving each of them guarded and unwilling to give their trust to anyone other than each other. No one is allowed to have their hearts. The brothers would never think of letting down their guard with anyone else, certainly not with a woman.

Follow Blake and Jewell’s journey and see if they can find a happily ever after…

Mel Goes to Hell by Demelza Carlton

Mel Goes To HellSynopsis:

The ultimate forbidden love – when Lucifer falls for an angel.

Luce and Mel unearth an age-old conspiracy behind his fall from Heaven which could doom their love for eternity. Yet in the deepest levels of Hell lies a secret that could hold their salvation.

Eternal damnation awaits any angel who descends into the Pit of Despair, but Mel will move Heaven and Earth to save Lucifer’s soul. Armed with little more than the fury of a righteous angel, Mel will raise Hell in the name of love.

From the heights of Heaven to the depths of Hell, can love truly conquer all?

A tiny taste of what’s in store:

“Heaven won’t help you if you stand in my way. From HELL Corporation to the Pit itself. Now, more than ever, it’s time for me to go to Hell.”

With barely a gold shimmer in the air, she was gone.

“What do we do now?” Peter asked Michael.

“Pray,” Michael replied. “I’d prefer to let a hundred demons into Heaven, with my blessing, than agree to let Mel go to Hell.”

“Why did you let her go, then?” Peter persisted.

Michael’s laughter was hollow. “Nothing can stop her from fulfilling her destiny. Not you, not me, not Raphael. Not even all the forces of Heaven combined.”

“What about the forces of Hell?”

Michael closed his eyes in defeat. “We’re about to find out, aren’t we?”
