Happy Thanksgiving Eve!



Sorry I have been MIA this week- family is in town and well that makes for little to no reading time. Although there is a lot of time for laughter.  So spread some holiday cheer and remember all the things you have to be thankful for.

I am extremely thankful for my husband and children.  I am also thankful for my job, and my fabulous followers to my blog.  Y'all rock!

Waiting on Wednesday (33) Cursed by Destiny


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!


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



Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…...

Celia’s a girl in trouble. Her heart is bound to Aric, but he is a pureblood were who must deny her or risk condemning his species to extinction. And that’s just her love life. She’s also been called to take down a group of demon terrorists looking to overthrow the paranormal world. (No pressure.)


In order to bring them down, Celia must ally herself to Misha, the master vampire who has made no secret of his desire for her. And if that weren’t enough misfortune for one girl, a clairvoyant’s prediction could destroy Celia and Aric’s love for good. The only way to protect the world from unbridled supernatural terrorism is for Celia to bind herself to her destined mate. And that doesn’t appear to be Aric….

Umm have you read the first two books in this series?  The ending of A Cursed Embraced had me crying the UGLY cry of tears.  How in the heck could he?  And this blurb- hello ARIC is her mate even if he is a douche bag for what he agreed to.  Who is this new guy and can I watch Aric kick his butt?

"Does that mean you wouldn't be surprised if I tried to kiss you again right now?" Thee was a twinkle in his eyes that made him seem younger, less serious than usual.

"Not surprised, but-"

"My response was cut off when his lips brushed against mine softly.

Soar by Alyssa Rose Ivy Kindle Location 1586

The real question on everyone's mind is who is Casey kissing? Toby or Jared? Well, to be honest, I am evil and not telling you. Needless to say I am have a fabulous time reading this one.

"I'm not dangerous," I breathed.

He brought his face toward mine.  "You are to me."

And somehow, against all reason, we were kissing.  I closed my eyes, and the world around me faded.  The noise, the smoke...it was gone.  All that mattered was the taste of his mouth, a mix of cloves and mints.

Waiting on Wednesday (32) Bitter Sweet Love


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

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


In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series THE DARK ELEMENTS, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn't just Jasmine's crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything...right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn't help that Jas's father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he's back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn't taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again...


What can I say? I am Jennifer L Armentrout groupie? Honestly though there is only one book of hers that I did not fall madly in love with. I just liked it. How many authors who have written over fifteen books can you say that about?

He grins, and leans forward onto his knees. he presses his hands to the metal plate, framing my head with his arms, and kisses me, slowly, on my mouth, under my jaw, right above my collarbone. I stay still, nervous about doing anything, in case it's stupid or he doesn't like it. But then I feel like a statue, like I am not really here at all, and so I touch his waist, hesitantly.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth Kindle Location 369

Okay so there is a lot of chatter about this book. I have somehow avoided all the chatter- blame it on the baby, or the toddlers. But for some reason I have not viewed any spoilers- I have purposely tried to to find out what happens. But I have got to say so far this is a great book. Granted I am only 10% into the book, so things could change. Here is hoping that they don't.

I open my mouth to tell him to shut up, but he covered my lips with his and gave me a deep, heartfelt kiss. He pulled away, winked at me, then grabbed my hand, and we crept forward. My lips tingled, and my heart now thudded with the thrill of that unexpected kiss. I felt secure, confident, especially with the firm grip of Rath's hand around mine.

"I don't know what I want," I said. "Not yet, anyway. I'm still trying to figure it all out."

His gaze warmed, and a smile tugged his lips.

"I'll be here when you do." He rolled to his feet, and then gestured at me to c'mon.

Unchosen by Michele Vail Kindle Location 649


I like it when the guy doesn't rush things especially after a great kiss.  The fact that he is willing to wait for her makes me smile.  I kinda wanna cheer him on.

Waiting on Wednesday (31) Soar

Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

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



In the city that never sleeps the Chronicles continue…

Serving coffee is temporary, just like Casey's year off from school. She’s going to come up with a plan to stay in New York City and go back to college, and that plan does not involve dating a paranormal creature—let alone two.

Running the supernatural society of New York is not as fun as it sounds, especially when you still have to answer to your ex-girlfriend’s fiancĂ©. Toby doesn’t mean to bring Casey into the chaos of his life, but he can't resist the girl who makes him smile when he thought no one else ever could.

Jared's in New York checking out a security risk for his best friend, the king. He plans to return to New Orleans quickly, but not if it means losing his chance with the brunette who pretends she wants nothing to do with him.

In over her head with a bunch of winged creatures who most definitely are not angels, Casey has to figure out who to trust with her life and maybe her heart.

I really liked The Crescent Chronicles all three books were really good.  Since this is a spin-off staring my favorite Pterons- Jared, I really can't wait.

Dean Looked up at me, and for a split second, I saw something other than deadly neutrality on his face. His eyes softened. His lips parted, like there was something he wanted to say.


I knelt next to the fireplace. I put one hand on his cheek, and I brought my lips to his. It was a friendly kiss. A European hello. Our mouths only touched for a second- but I felt it, electric, all the way to my toes.

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes Kindle Location 978

Oh I love it when the kiss is electrifying. Especially when you can feel it all the way to your toes.

They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is trying to make sense of the memories resurfacing from her old life. At the same time, she's learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.

Then a figure from Anna's childhood reappears. Is it a Branch setup, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Uncertain of where her loyalties lie, Anna must fight to learn the truth -- before she is betrayed again. Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased?

Jennifer Rush delivers a thrilling sequel to Altered in a novel packed with mysteries, lies, and surprises that are sure to keep readers guessing until the last age is turned.


Why I fell so hard?


I love the grays, blacks and whites of this cover.  The shades are what did it for me.  But then mixed in with the reds.  Holy alien babies everywhere must be falling for this cover.  Let's not even mention the numbers across his chest, belly and arm.  What do they mean?
