Fallen Crest High by Tijan

Fallen Crest High (Fallen Crest High, #1)Fallen Crest High by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG, SOOOO GOOD!! If I could I'd give this book a billion stars!! Yea, it was that awesome!!

Ok, here's my real review.

My my!! This book had me from the get go. Yea, it's YA but very mature. What made me love this book was how much I felt while reading this story. I was sad, happy, angry, excited, numb, name it & I felt it. Sam was pretty awesome and held herself together for the most part. Analise, her mother, was crazy biotch. Never telling Sam about her real father, thinking she could somehow control Sam, and just spring on a divorce and moving on to the next. All within a blink of an eye. Ughh, she really got under my skin. As for mommy dearest's new one, James Kade, obviously he's rich and owns half the state, I could have cared less for him to be honest. To me, he's just Logan & Mason's dad, who just happens to be with Sam's mother. Now Logan & Mason...OMG!! Total hunks, total Alpha Males, & total yum!! Logan is hilarious. Mason just had me swooning over him. Everyone else was basically there as filler. I know they were necessary to the story but all I cared about was Sam, Logan, & Mason. Thank the gods this was not a love triangle. I don't know if I could have handled that. I do love Sam & Mason together. There were moments when I felt like he wasn't serious about her but there at the end he says those three little words. What kills me, is their little secret they're keeping from Logan. *Sad face* To wrap this up, this was a great read and I can't wait for more!!

Love and Decay: Volume One by Rachel Higginson

Love and Decay: Volume One (Love and Decay #1-6)Love and Decay: Volume One by Rachel Higginson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved Volume One of Love and Decay. Of course, I love reading about zombies, zombie apocalypses, & if there's some romance thrown in there, then hell yea, I'm down. I've always questioned how it all started and the reason in this story not only made sense but was quite funny, actually. Speaking of funny, Reagan & Haley had a great sense of humor facing the zombie apocalypse together. It made them real & you could easily identify with that. So, they team up with a family of five brothers and their sweet younger sister. No doubt about it, they come across many dangers, & yet, in the end are still together. It was awesome. At times I wondered if certain characters would survive. Many moments kept me on edge. I was literally afraid to keep reading but I did & I'm glad I did. I'm willing & ready to dive into Volume Two of Love and Decay.

Damaged and the Outlaw by Bijou Hunter

Damaged and the Outlaw (Damaged, #4)Damaged and the Outlaw by Bijou Hunter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved Raven & Vaughn's story. It was cute how Raven thought she could refrain from sex, even with Bailey doing the same. One look and sniff of Vaughn and that went out the window. Now if you've read the previous books you're well aware that Vaughn is an Outlaw, from another MC. He has found somewhat of a home with the Reapers. So with a hit out on his head & limited time, who would want to have something real when it won't even last? Now that's Vaughn's perspective. And it makes sense but when him & Raven decide to become friends with benefits that all changes as they develop feelings for one another. They both fight those feelings but in the end realize they can't fight what's real between them. Even though Vaughn's Outlaw-ism is sorted out, it's Raven who suffers for it. Which broke my heart. However, she's a tough broad and as long as Vaughn, her family, & friends are by her side, she gets through it and of course she gets her HEA. While I loved Raven & Vaughn's story, I loved seeing everyone else from the other books. Especially Tawny & Judd. Tawny showed the club she's got Lady Balls. I'm stoked to see everyone again in the next installment!!

Blood of the Immortal by Ashley Jeffers

Blood of the Immortal (Blood #1)Blood of the Immortal by Ashley Jeffers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*A complimentary e-copy of this book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.*

I. Loved. This. Book. Definitely not your typical vampire read. Which made it refreshing & unique. The story draws you in from the very beginning. It's fast paced, loaded with action, and romantic. What I really loved was how the paranormal elements were derived from mythology. Now that, peaked my interest. There was never a dull moment in this story. I'm afraid if I were to go into this story & tell you what it's about, I'd give too much away. However, you'll be getting somewhat of a HEA. The author left room for another book. I think it'd be just as awesome. So if you're a paranormal lover of vampires & you're looking for something different & intriguing, pick this book up. You will not be disappointed.

Blood and Loss by Electa Graham

Blood and Loss (Cassandra Myles, Witch, #1)Blood and Loss by Electa Graham

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a fantastic delight. A bit of a cliffhanger but hey, first books in a series almost always are. Blood and Loss was funny, sexy, & magical. With vampires, witches, & werewolves this story took me on a ride that I totally didn't expect. With enough romance that I had to keep asking myself, who will Cass end up with? Cass was easy to identify with. She's a witch, who's powers have been stripped by a cruel witch with cruel intentions. Her love interests, two sexy vampires & a little off the wall werewolf. It all came together to make an awesome read & any paranormal reader should love this book as much as I do.

Damaged and The Cobra by Bijou Hunter

Damaged and the Cobra (Damaged, #3)Damaged and the Cobra by Bijou Hunter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lark & Aaron's story was rocky at first but smoothed out towards the end. I've loved all the books in the Damaged series. I believe it's due to the fact that I get a HEA. Granted, Lark didn't have it nearly as bad as Farrah & Tawny, she did have some shit to go through to get to Aaron. Her creepy step-brother & controlling step-dad weren't making it easy. Aaron had an issue thinking his Muse was going to hurt him like a former bitch did. That was squashed, though. I really enjoyed this book. There wasn't a back & forth at ALL, like in the previous two. What Lark & Aaron have is real. There's two songs that kept playing in my head while reading their story. First song is Mariah Carey's Love Story & the second would be Neo's Lazy Love. For obvious reasons, haha. I am glad to see Tawny & Farrah with their loves. Coop still runnin' things, like the Boss that he is. (Yum) I love Lark's sister, Raven. I think her & Bailey are going to be the bestest of friends. I love this series. Happy for the Artist & his Muse.

He then leaves & little do they know someone has followed them from Vegas in search of becoming a vampire. Their bond is severed leaving Aaron to think Michelle is dead.
