13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough

Goodreads Summary:
Natasha’s sure that her friends love her. But does that mean they didn’t try to kill her? Natasha is the most popular girl in school. So why was she pulled out of a freezing river after being dead for thirteen minutes? She doesn’t remember how she ended up in the icy water that night, but she does know this—it wasn’t an accident, and she wasn’t suicidal. Now Natasha’s two closest friends, who are usually her loyal sidekicks, are acting strangely. NAtasha turns to Becca, the best friend she dumped years before, to help her figure out the mystery. At first Becca isn’t sure that she even wants to help Natasha. But as she is drawn back into Natasha’s orbit, Becca starts putting the pieces together. As an outsider, Becca belaives she may be the only one who can uncover the truth...which is far more twisted than she ever imagined.

My Review:
This was an intense read. Becca hasn’t been in the in crowd for a while. She is ok with her life now. She has a friend in Hannah and Aiden her boyfriend. When something terrible happens to her old best friend. She is tested. Is her ex friend Tasha worthy of her help and sympathy? After renewing their friendship can they work together to figure out what happened to Tasha that dreadful night she died in the river? One thing is for sure, nothing is as it seems. Manipulation is in full effect and no one should be trusted.

I really enjoyed Becca, for the most part. Her parts of the story were my favorite to read. This book goes back and forth between a few people and sometimes diary entries and policy notes. I think that added a lot of dimension to the story and characters. Becca and Hannah were probably the only two I really liked. Tasha...I didn’t like her. The entire story I didn’t like her. She is a horrible person plain and simple. I can’t say I was surprised her “friends” did what they did. Aiden was an interesting character in the background. Hannah I truly felt for. Poor girl was innocent and caught in the crossfire.

The plot was so fun. I loved the intrigue and suspense. Can I just say that high school was bad. Social media has just added to the difficulty in the lives of young people now. I am glad I didn’t have any of that when I was growing up. Kids are absolutely brutal. Females especially. Watch out, people can be destroyed online. Becca was also caught in the middle of this crap storm. So much happened. I was satisfied with the conclusion, or what I thought was the conclusion. Then I looked and I was only at like 75% sooo yea, things get crazy fast.

Be prepared to have your mind completely blown. The end of this book will leave you realing! I finished it and was like...o...m...g. That did not just all happen. I love when a book has the ability to take me completely off guard. I was so sucked in that I couldn’t put it down. I will definely be reading more from this author.

Audio Books: Yay or Nay

I have never listened to an audiobook. I know some people are very into them, I just never have been. I'm so busy with work right now that I am considering listening to a book on the commute and on breaks. I am curious what everyone else thinks. Have you listened to audiobooks? Do you enjoy them? Should I give it a try?

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Goodreads Summary:
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

My Review:
I picked this one up after I saw the movie trailer. Not going to lie, I hadn't heard of it before then. I was intriged with the movie trailer and thought I'd better read the book first. I am glad I did. Everything Everything was a fun and fast read. It was very well written. You could really feel how hard it was for Madeline to never leave the house. I can't imagine that, especially for a teenager. The best way to describe this book is cute. Madeline and Olly were soooo cute. They way he courted her was perfect. They basically fell for each other with minimal contact which is a not normal. Will Olly and Madeline ever have a normal relationship or will her disease make it impossible?

I really enjoyed Olly. He didn't have a normal life either. Not quite like Madeline's but, he had his own demons to deal with too. He managed to be much more grown up then he should have to be. I think he was perfect for Madeline. A lot happened for a teenager who couldn't leave her house. Their relationship was adorable!

I really liked Clara too. She is Madeline's nurse and I felt she added a lot to the story. Her views on Madeline's illness and he way she helped her when things got bad was amazing. I like to think it was more then just because she was a nurse. She cared for Madeline as if she was her own child and that is hard to find.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick fun read and I would recommend it to anyone. I would have liked a little more elaboration on the end. Like ok now what happens?!?! Alas there was no more and my mind is left to wonder.

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Till Death 
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series Number: 1
Release Date: February 28, 2017

Goodreads Summary:
In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s gripping new novel, a young woman comes home to reclaim her life—even as a murderer plots to end it. . . 

It’s been ten years since Sasha Keaton left her West Virginia hometown . . . since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. The piece that falls into place when Sasha’s threatened—and FBI agent Cole Landis vows to protect her the way he couldn’t a decade ago.

First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now . . . because under the quirky sexiness Cole first fell for is a steely strength that only makes him love Sasha more.

But someone is watching. Waiting. And Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.

My Thoughts:
A serial killer/murder/romance by one of my favorite authors!! Yes please! I have said it before and will say it again. I will read anything this woman writes!

Finding Kyle by Sawyer Bennett

Goodreads Summary:
When you’ve lived your life as a criminal… 
When you’ve done unspeakable things … 
When your soul has become dark and stained… 

The path to redemption begins where you least expect it. 

Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world. 

Little by little, she claws through his shell. 
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more. 
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed. 

When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?

My Review:
I have to start out by saying. I loved Jane! She was a great female character! She was a super sweet person with a great personality. I loved all of her movie quotes. I can see how she could really mess with Kyle. She lives a quite safe life on a teachers salary. She is an amazing artist and an all around great neighbor. Kyle is not prepared for her. She really dug her heals into the ground when she wanted him. What Jane doesn't know is that Kyle isn't really who he says he is. He has a pretty sorted past. A past that he must keep secret or he will put his life and everyone he cares about at risk. 

I loved how Jane not so subtly goes after Kyle. He pushes her away pretty hard but, Jane is relentless. She is so attracted to his bad boy exterior. They have a chemistry even if it isn't always a two way street. Kyle tries very hard to keep Jane away but, he has very little luck. She knows what she wants. It take longer then I wanted for Kyle to show some positive feelings towards Jane but, it does happen. He needs someone like her more then he knows. His past has left Kyle broken and he's not the man he used to be. Jane could be the missing piece that puts Kyle back together again. 

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick fun read. It was a fun romantic read and one of my favorite from Sawyer Bennett thus far. It's time to start picking up her books!

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

Goodreads Summary:
Elias and Laia are running for their lives. After the events of the Fourth Trial, Martial soldiers hunt the two fugitives as they flee the city of Serra and undertake a perilous journey through the heart of the Empire.

Laia is determined to break into Kauf—the Empire’s most secure and dangerous prison—to save her brother, who is the key to the Scholars’ survival. And Elias is determined to help Laia succeed, even if it means giving up his last chance at freedom.

But dark forces, human and otherworldly, work against Laia and Elias. The pair must fight every step of the way to outsmart their enemies: the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus, the merciless Commandant, the sadistic Warden of Kauf, and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene—Elias’s former friend and the Empire’s newest Blood Shrike.

Bound to Marcus’s will, Helene faces a torturous mission of her own—one that might destroy her: find the traitor Elias Veturius and the Scholar slave who helped him escape…and kill them both.

My Review:
I guess it was naive of me to think that the journey to Kauf would be a big easier for Laia and Elias. The journey was full of danger, lies, and death. I never thougth that everyone would survive this journey but, I was not prepared for all the sacrifices that were made. No one will be the same if they make it through this. Friendships and loyalty will be tested. Can Elias and Laia rescue Darin? Is he even alive? Can Helene actually kill Elias? So much intrigue! I was on the edge of my seat with the end of each chapter. 

There were a lot of reviews that appeared to not enjoy Helene's new chapters in this one. I personally loved them. It was very interesting to see what was going on inside the Empire while Elias and Laia were on the run. There was a massive amount of internal conflict for Helene. Helene went through so many terrible things. She is broken now and everyone is at risk. She is going to get her revenge and everyone who has wronged her should be afraid...very afraid. 

Elias...oh how I just love him. I wanted him and Laia together so much! They had so many beautiful moments. There is a cloud between them...well 2 actually. Keenan for one. A thorn in my side that boy is. I have never liked him. I figured a journey across the desert would be more romantic however they aren't alone often and Elias has a lot to deal with. I still have high hopes. With everything that's happened I am uncertain of anyone's future. 

I am very sad that I have to wait until 2018 sometime for the next book in the series. That is way to long! I am invested in these characters and need to know what is going to happen with 2 more books planned. I am glad I picked this series up. It lived up to the hype and I was worried it wouldn't. So now I play the looooooong waiting game for the next book.

I'm Back!

Hello Everyone!! 
I know, it's been a crazy long time since I blogged. I have had some issues in my life that kept me from blogging. What's important is that I am back! I am hoping to have more time to blog in the upcoming months. I have missed it a lot. My job has been so crazy and I have went down in hours to keep myself sane. Therefore I now have some "me time" back for the things I love. One of those is blogging. Reviews will start again!

My Review:
All I  an say after this one is I NEED MORE! I loved this short story. It is just a glimpse into what is sure to be a great series. I loved Kade and Vicky. They find themselves in a situation they never thought they would be in or needed. This is just part one and just scratched the surface of these characters. will Kade and Vicky get through rehab?! I can't wait to find out.

Kade and Vicky are pretty much the polar opposites of each int he love department. Kade is a wild man  who is very skilled in the sheets. While Vicky is a romantic. You couldn't get anymore opposites attract here. I feel like Vicky's heart is more on the line here but, its to early to tell! 

I am anxiously awaiting the next installment. Part one just kind of ended and I was like NOOO!I am a huge fan of these quick reads that suck you in and you can read in one sitting. I just love them. So keep them coming please!

From New York Times bestselling author J.C. Reed and Jackie Steele comes a hot, new romantic comedy...

Kade Wright is an expert in rocking any woman's world. Sexy, rich, and the type you don’t bring home to meet your mother, he has broken more hearts than he can remember, and there is no end in sight. Until one mistake lands him in boiling hot waters. When his company orders him to the LOVE ADDICTS ANONYMOUS Rehab Center, he better get his affairs in order or else he loses his seat on the company board.

Love isn’t supposed to be addictive.

But for Vicky Sullivan it is.
A true romantic at heart, she comes with a bit of a stalking tendency, and is completely not adverse to commitment. But who’s Kade to judge? As someone who’s seeking commitment and afraid of never finding love, she’s the type of woman he wouldn’t usually hit on. Except, she’s hot and keeps avoiding him…yes, even after seeing his private parts naked in all their glory.
Kade isn’t known as the tall, dark and ruthless businessman for no reason. Romance isn’t in the air, more like wild between the sheets action with no expectations. Vicky’s convinced she can resist, but Kade has other plans for her.

Can Vicky stay away from the one man who seems so easy to get and so hard to keep?

Note: This ends in a cliffhanger. This sexy romantic comedy is the first part of a three-part series of novellas between 25k and 35k words each. Parts Two and Three will be released within the next few weeks. A story you don't want your nan to read! Told from alternate point of view, it will have you blushing hard and laughing out loud.

About THE BLESSED KNIGHTS (The Angel Knights Book 3)

Eli, Lucia's half-demon love interest, has been stabbed with a true-cross dagger and captured by Cyrus, master of the possessor demons.

Michael, one of the Divine Elders, has no choice but to intervene. The Chosen Knights track down Mortem, the demon who is the key to finding Cyrus, and learn they must travel deep into the pit of a Hawaiian volcano.

When they astral travel to the past in search of a clue and follow Jacques de Moley to Roselyn Chapel in medieval Scotland, what they find will rewrite history.

My Review:
The Blessed Knights is definitely a wild ride. So much is happening in this installment. Eli has been taken by Cyrus and is not having a good time. The reunion of these two does not go well. While Eli is fighting for his life Lucia and the group are trying to find him. They can’t do it alone. Enter Michael!! I have missed my Michael. The gang is about to go through a rough time. Going up against evil is never easy. Relationships are evolving and a battle is on the horizon. Will they be able to overcome their obstacles?
One of the best things about this series is the relationships between characters. The way everyone cares about each other and would do anything for one another is simply beautiful.  They may not be related by blood but, they are definitely a family. I love the new characters introduced as well.
Eli and Lucia, forbidden love. I know these two technically shouldn’t/can’t be together. I want them to so bad! Like it or not they are perfect for each other. Their interactions are a little different in this book after what Cyrus does to Eli but, I still loved him! I have high hopes for these two to break the mold of what is ok.
The way this book is written you can really visualize what’s happening. It’s like a movie playing in your head while you read it. I mean how can you go wrong with Angels, Demons, Witches, Vampires and the Knights Templar?!? You will be on the edge of your seat dying to turn the page to see what happens next. I have been in love with this world and these characters since the Crossroads series. I can’t wait to see where their journey will take them next. If you haven’t read this series, you must go get it immediately!

Teaser of THE BLESSED KNIGHTS (The Angel Knights Book 3) 
by Mary Ting:

Ikelia leaned back against the door and looked at her fingernails as if she was bored while the other hand stroked the dagger on her belt. “What do you want, Vince? Why bother to come? You know how this will go. You’ll try to capture me, but I’ll humiliate you by kicking you out. Run along to Cyrus and tell him you couldn’t find me, and maybe he won’t butcher you.”
Vince hissed and whipped out his sword, and in a flash he was in front of her. Pointing the tip on Ikelia’s neck, he said, “Don’t mock me, little witch.” He lowered his gaze and the sword. “No necklace this time? What a pity.” He clucked his tongue and raised his hand to show her the same sunburst necklace Eli had around his neck.
Ikelia shoved the sword out of the way and paced toward the broken glass. “You can keep it. It won’t protect you, and it certainly won’t harm me. Besides, you don’t know the spell. You weren’t worthy to have one passed down to you. What a shame. It’s quite useful when you know how to use one.”
After she walked in a complete circle, she bent down on her knees and placed her hands a few inches off the pile of shards. At her mumbled words, blue, red, gold, and green pieces lifted in the air and pressed together, forming a beautiful three-feet-tall vase I had seen earlier on top of a small wooden table. The item had glued itself back together.
“There.” Ikelia clapped her hands two times and strode toward the door. “Good as new.” She smirked. “It’s like you were never here. Your magic is no match for mine. You’re in my domain. Don’t forget that. And I believe you have something that is mine.” She wiggled her index finger. The sunburst necklace Vince held flew into her hands and coiled around her neck.
Vince’s eyes darkened. He trembled with rage, ready to pounce on her, but instead raised his arm toward the glass cases.
The top of one of the glass cases shattered outward, and glass splinters blasted in the air. From inside the case, a small dagger flew toward her as he threw the one from his belt.
I gasped, and then held the breath. Had she seen the second dagger coming for her? I twitched, ready to bolt to her rescue, even though I knew I shouldn’t, but Father pressed his hand on my shoulder, firm and strong. He knew me too well. I had failed Eli, and I couldn’t just sit back and do nothing for his mother. I had enough guilt as it was; I didn’t want to add more.
The first dagger stopped inches from the spot between her eyes, but the second one nicked her leg and dropped to the ground with a loud clang. Blood soaked the dark fabric, but she made no sound. I was pretty sure she didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of hurting her.
“Are you bleeding? Pity, I guess you can’t handle more than one at a time. You’ve been warned, but you can surrender anytime.”
Vince raised his hand again. Five daggers bolted from under his cloak fast as lightning. They jabbed her cape and pinned her against the wooden door, two daggers on each side and one between her legs, while some sort of darkness swirled around her. Magic light, only visible to supernatural beings.
“Well, well, well, what will Cyrus think of me now? I think he’ll butcher you instead of me. What do you think?” He took a step toward her with each word. Caressing her cheek, he spoke again. “It’s too bad we’re not on the same side, precious witch. Such a waste of a pretty thing. Now my eyes will be sore from missing your beautiful face. There aren’t many beautiful things that hold my attention in this world.”
“Shut up. Let me go,” Ikelia spat, wiggling herself to set free.
Vince pushed back. “Don’t even bother. Don’t you know about my special daggers? No magic can break my spell.”
Ikelia’s lips spread wide in a smug grin, like she had something up her sleeve, but she did nothing nor said nothing to break the daggers’ spell. “Don’t worry, Vince. You know I always have something handy, even if it isn’t on me.”
Vince whipped his head toward the wall, straight at us. Could he see us? Impossible. Father shielded us. Raising his chin, his nose twitched, like a dog sniffing the air. “I was right. You do have a human—not one, but two?” He beamed a mischievous grin. “Stay right there.” He didn’t look at her, but instead placed his palms flat against the wall just feet from where we looked through. “I feel so much energy coming through the wall. Perhaps someone or some beings are spying on us.”
I stiffened and held my breath as he tapped the wall. Ikelia watched with narrowed, daggered eyes.
“There’s nothing there, idiot. Touch the wall all you wish.” Ikelia scoffed.
“Release the wall, Ikelia, or I’ll hurt you more,” he threatened, eyes cold and unyielding.
Everyone inch of me begged her to do it, only because I had no idea what torture Vince would inflict on her. I already knew she wouldn’t die. Vince had said he was to take her to Cyrus, and I had watched her die when Eli and I astral walked to the day of her death. But then I thought of Jacques and Geoffroi. What took Vince so long to figure out humans were on the other side? Did they come out of the barrels? Oh please, let me be wrong.
When she didn’t answer, a smaller dagger flew out from the glass case and dug into Ikelia’s leg, the same spot she had been nicked earlier. Her body curled inward, but the restraints held her in place. Her face blanched and eyes rolled back, but she didn’t make a sound.
“Release the barrier, Ikelia,” Vince demanded, his tone harder and colder.
When she did nothing again, the dagger twisted, digging into her flesh. That time, she cried out. She must have released the shield unwillingly for Vince to curl his lips to his ears.
“That’s a good girl,” he cooed. “I think I’ll have fun with your pets.” He winked at her, and one of his feet slipped right through the wall.
I panicked. We had to help Jacques and Geoffroi. But before I could mutter a word, Ikelia closed her eyes, and then shot her eyes open toward the clock. The pendulum stopped ticking, frozen in place. As if the clock held the power of time and space inside the store, everything stilled, even Vince, who was almost through to the other side. One heel stuck out.

Check out the entire Angel Knights series!

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Diabolic 
Author: S.J. Kincaid
Series Number: 1
Release Date: November 1, 2016

Goodreads Summary:
Nemesis is a Diabolic, a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senator’s daughter, Sidonia. The two have grown up side by side, but are in no way sisters. Nemesis is expected to give her life for Sidonia, and she would do so gladly. She would also take as many lives as necessary to keep Sidonia safe.

When the power-mad Emperor learns Sidonia’s father is participating in a rebellion, he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court. She is to serve as a hostage. Now, there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia. She must become her. Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia—a killing machine masquerading in a world of corrupt politicians and two-faced senators’ children. It’s a nest of vipers with threats on every side, but Nemesis must keep her true abilities a secret or risk everything.

As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns there is something more to her than just deadly force. She finds a humanity truer than what she encounters from most humans. Amidst all the danger, action, and intrigue, her humanity just might be the thing that saves her life—and the empire.

My Thoughts:
I really like the cover of this book. The summary sounds different from a lot of what I have read recently. It is safe to say I will be getting this one as soon as it comes out.
