Envy's Curse by A.R. Von

Envy's CurseEnvy's Curse by A.R. Von

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


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

I must say that this story was not at all what I was expecting. It's a full on Greek Mythology, erotic romance. I did label it as Paranormal but we are dealing with the Greek Gods...so you know, there's an unseen force at work when dealing with them. This story is basically about two souls destined to be one. Of course, there's always something or someone trying to tear that apart. Either out of jealousy, hate, or Envy. So if you're familiar with the whole Poseidon, Medusa, Athena story, then you know things do not turn out so good for Medusa or any mortal man who gazes upon her. What I liked of this story is how the author fills in the gaps of how the story came to be. It's erotic, but it's panty melting fun!! Poseidon figures out a way, through Zeus, to be with Medusa. He even loves her snakes & all. <3 So very protective, so very ALPHA!! Yum. If you're looking for a HEA, you'll find it & be happy with this story. It's a unique twist on an old myth that makes you think, "Hmmm, could've happened."

Hello there...

This is me just checking in. I'd like to let everyone know that at the moment I am on vacation with my family. We're currently in San Antonio relaxing in a motel, watching cartoons. I am reading. Of course, what else would I do? Hehehe. When I finally make it back home I plan on making some changes to the blog. I'll be more involved with my reading and reviewing. This year has really been one of change for me. I'm thirty years young and I feel as if I am now just coming into my own. Weird, if you'd ask me. I honestly hope you all are having an awesome summer & is filled with plenty of books to read. I can't wait to get back home and start this fresh beginning!!

Reality (The Arie Chronicles #1) by Dani Hart

Reality (The Arie Chronicles #1)Reality by Dani Hart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


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

Wow. That was crazy. In a very good way. This story brought out feelings in me throughout my time with it. Arie & her sadness was really quite strong. One other emotion that really bugged me was angst brought on by all the suspense through the story. I don't like love triangles, at all, but it really worked in this story. From what I can tell, Arie is just taking what she can get, considering all the events that have taken place. In this world, The End is never final. There was a small part of me that felt like the story had a little too much detail but as I got past it wasn't a big deal. The author ended the story heartbreakingly beautiful, to say the least. You know there's more to come but no terrible cliffhanger. The story was a nice & unique change from my normal reads. Very enjoyable. I hope to read more of Arie & her Chronicles in the future.

Lady's Destiny by A.R. Von

Lady's DestinyLady's Destiny by A.R. Von

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A complimentary copy was given to me by the author in exchange for this reader's honest review.

I'd like to start off with letting y'all know that this book was the first Fantasy/Paranormal read I have ever read from the author. The previous books I've read from A.R. Von have been contemporary romance. And while I'm ok with those types of books, I love my paranormal/fantasy books to the extreme. Yes, you can say it's my favorite genre. So, while delving into this story I was so giddy with joy & relief. Joy of finding a great story. Relief because it was totally different from my usual paranormal reads. No vampires or werewolves here. Nope. It's about a freakin' Unicorn!! Say what?? Yep, a Unicorn. From the instant I started reading I was on a journey to find one's destiny. A destiny not easily obtained. Only through love & magic can the world be set into balance. It was a classic tale of Good vs Evil. I really enjoyed the details, to the world building, character development, & the story had depth. From beginning to end I was engulfed by this tale of magic. Never a dull moment, especially since we get two alternating point of view from our two main characters. The erotic scenes definitely panty-wetting worthy. I hope the author does more work from this genre because she knocked it out the park with this story.

The Gryphon and His Thief by Karen Michelle Nutt

The Gryphon and His ThiefThe Gryphon and His Thief by Karen Michelle Nutt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


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

The Gryphon and His Thief was really an unexpected delight. I figure it's because there's so much packed into this short tale. Yes, it took me a few days to read it but I have children to feed and take care of. If I had more time then I know I could've read it one sitting. I enjoyed what we were given of the two main character's development & personalities. I fell head over heels for Darrien. *Swoon* I loved the writing. From the very start you're on an adventure right up until the end. I do fancy it when you get two different point of views. The story is based on some Greek Mythology. Throw it in with a little bit of history, romance, suspense, & the present day, you've got yourself a great read!! Also, we get a little HEA there at the end. It's awesome!!

Sweetest Treat (Cursed #1) by A.R. Von

Sweetest Treat (Cursed #1)Sweetest Treat by A.R. Von

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


*A complimentary ecopy was provided by the author in exchange for this reader's honest review.*


Sweetest Treat
is a neat, erotic, delicious twist on the Hansel & Gretel story. It's a fast paced read with just enough details to keep the story intriguing right there up until the end. Meesh & Mitch, siblings, are left abandoned in the woods by their father only to come across a house that feeds their starving tummies but since they didn't ask, they're forced to fight for their lives only to be cursed in doing so. They love sweets, anything sweet. That is their curse. Since this is Meesh's story, you see how a mysterious sweet shop owner breaks her curse. Kind of a whirlwind-romance. It was hot!! And it truly was sweet. Hehe *Pun intended*
It's nice to know that Mitch will get his own story. Giddy about that.

Wish For Me (The Djinn Order #1) by A. Star

Wish for Me (The Djinn Order, #1)Wish for Me by A. Star

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


*I was gifted this book by the author in exchange for this reader's honest review.*

I'm going to start this off by fan-girling over my new favorite author. I came across this book as I was looking for a genie (although I shouldn't say genie, according to Irving) book & the blurb caught my eye. It's a must read, people!! Why? The author holds nothing back. She reels you in this story with highly developed characters, witty banter, and a plot with some really great twists there at the end. I love it!! I could not put my kindle down. I was at 70% thinking, " Oh no, it's almost over." I was just captive by the writing and the details of this story. I really felt like I was right there with Glory.

So Glory St. Pierre finds a lamp with a keyhole & key from her grandmother's stash after she passed away. Wanting no one to see it she hides it in her her bag. Goes home, turns it three times, & voila, a genie comes out. Sorry, a Djinn. A fine as fuck, purple eyed, piece of man-meat, Alpha Djinn. Irving Amir. *Meow* You know the deal, three wishes & three restrictions. Irving has some issues with humans & Glory just happens to prove him wrong throughout the story until they get real close because she's freaking out over the possibility of a relationship. Irving is ALL Alpha. He's kinky in the bedroom, too!! I just want to go on record and say that Irving is MINE!! MY new book boyfriend. How could ANY woman not swoon over him?
And so someone tries to take out Amir then they try going after Glory. Irving takes it upon himself to protect her by taking her to his realm. Oh, the description of his realm was so stunningly beautiful. I want to go there. Like, now!! All gold, steel & steam. I was in reading heaven. This story seemed to be about revelations. Glory was in the dark about certain things I cannot go into detail of. There were many. It's what made the story so freakin' awesome & juicy. I left a lot out but that's why you should go read this book. Especially if you love Steampunk and paranormal romance. I'm so looking forward to see what adventures lie ahead for Glory & Irving. What a wonderful way to start this series!!
