The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

The Original Sinners  # 1

 Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him...or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.


" Show,
Don't tell. "

5 amazing stars!!!!

When I first read the blurb, or maybe it was the second time? Don't remember, but I thought that wow, this will do! This story is what I need right now.
I imagined that Zack will be this hardcore, dom type editor who'll kick Nora's ass, figuratively speaking :))
And Nora will be this submissive, brilliant woman with defiance in her eyes! Our regular BDSM. After long power struggle they'll finally settle down and live happily ever after.. I could have not been more wrong!

This story is nothing I've ever expected. And It's not a romance story either, so don't fool yourself with hopes of happy endings.

This is a horror story if anything and I think the 'author' IN this book would agree with me.

Here.. the person who loves you don't bring you flowers, no.. He beats you. Among other things..

That said, I wasn't disappointed with this book. Quite the contrary, I loved it! It's emotional, raw, true to the core. Full of desires and hurt and pain and love. Yes love.
But it's not a romance.
It's a horror story!

Hunted by Ednah Walters

Hunted by an unknown but powerful enemy, Lil, Bran and the Guardians must seek help from unlikely sources to avert total annihilation of the Guardians. When they finally face their enemy, one of them may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Read the excerpt:

“Come on, Lil,” a female voice urged.
“I think she’s coming around,” a male voice said.
I lifted my eyelids. At least I thought I did. There was nothing but blinding whiteness. I strained until the blue sky and faces inked in. Unfamiliar faces. Two women and one man. Their eyes were filled with concern as they stared down at me. Beside them were familiar faces—Bran, Grampa and Aunt Janelle, Kim, Izzy, Remy, Sykes and Kylie, but they began to fade.
“No, don’t leave me,” I cried out and reached out for them.
 “Not so fast,” one of the unfamiliar women warned and pressed my shoulder down. “You had a nasty fall.”
I struggled against her hand and sat up. Black dots appeared in my eyes and a sharp pain radiated from the back of my head. I closed my eyes until the dizziness passed, then raised a trembling hand to my head. There was a huge bump the size of an egg, and my skull felt like someone was hammering it with a blunt object.
Squinting, my gaze moved from her to the other woman, then the man. They all wore black pants and matching shirts, a uniform of some kind, and had daggers in sheaths strapped around their waist and their thighs. I’d never seen them before in my life, yet they watched me with such concern.
I inched away from them and noticed I wasn’t dressed like them. I wore a bikini and was lying down on a towel. Frowning, I took in our surroundings. We were on a grassy patch by a pond in the middle of a forest. The trees were so tall and curved in such a way that was unnatural. It was like they deliberately curved to block the skyline or hide the pond.
Why couldn’t I remember where I was or how I got here? What was my name?
My gaze moved back to the woman squatting beside me. I wondered whether to ask her these questions, but survival instinct stopped me even though I didn’t feel any negative vibes from her.
I scooted backward and realized my grip was around a dagger. Intrigued, I studied it. It had a clear, wavy blade and green stones on its gilded hilt.
Seeing the dagger switched on something inside my pounding head. Memories of places and people rushed back—I saw myself entering a booth in an arena, where a familiar man with red hair called me his daughter; attempting to escape a dark-haired woman who claimed to be my half-sister; a huge black man with soft brown eyes helping me, and another with short-cropped blond hair swearing allegiance to me…
If my head wasn’t pounding, I would have laughed with triumph. My name was Lil Falcon. I was a Psi Cardinal Guardian within the Northeast Sector, and I hunted demons. 

My Review:

4 Strong stars!

I've signed up for this blast and a book review, but I wasn't sure I'd even like this book or the series.

I know... I know... I probably shouldn't say that, but I wanna be honest
when I say that this book , this series more the surprised me, it blew my mind away! TOTALLY! UNEXPECTEDLY! ohhh.. and the ending.....!

See, I read Ya from time to time, but I'm usually more hesitant to start with a teen angst.

What I liked most in this book was Lil! How she is so much more mature!
I've read this series, all 3 books in a row, so I actually felt proud of her! 

Of course this new book also brings more secrets, more enemies to love or to hate and a ton of action. There was A LOT of that. And I loved it!
The fight between God and Evil - super!

I don't wanna spoil anything for ya, so I just want to advise you.. or
better yet, I insist, that if you haven't bought this book yet, or if you haven't even read this series in a first place.. You, my dear friend must do that IMMEDIATELY!


 All in all, Hunted is a very enjoyable read, especially for those who enjoy angel/demon books. This one has everything you want in an angel book while still maintaining its own distinct feel. ~TeresaMaryRose This series is addictive. ~Author Kate Kaynak AMAZING! There is not enough words to describe how much I loved Hunted. Ednah Walters has outdid herself if that is even possible. ~Megan McDade  

Author Ednah Walters

I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy boys mysteries, hence Stratemeyer influence, before I graduated to Mills & Boons (starting with Janet Daily's Shutter the Sky) and the rest is history. I enjoy good love stories, tingly mysteries and wondrous adventures. When I finished my college and decided to be a stay-at-home mother, I devoured books like they were going out of production, until reading just wasn't enough. So I started to write. I've written picture books, contemporary and romantic suspense, biracial/multicultural books, and finally YA fantasy. Awakened is the first book in The Guardian Legacy series. I'm working on book 2, tentatively named Betrayed. When I'm not writing, I do things with my family, five children or my darling husband of 18 years. I live in a picturesque valley in Utah, the setting for my series.

Til Death by Sharon Sala

Rebel Ridge series 3

He left in handcuffs. Now it's time to set himself free. 

Nearly twenty years after he was wrongly convicted of setting the fire that killed his father, Lincoln Fox returns to Rebel Ridge, Kentucky. There, deep in the Appalachians, the truth of that terrible night lies buried-and he's sworn to uncover it. 

His plans take an unexpected turn when, in the midst of a blizzard, he rescues Meg Walker from her wrecked car. Suddenly Linc discovers another reason to clear his name. Meg, his high school sweetheart, had always believed in his innocence, and if he wants a future with her, he has to show the world proof that she was right. 

As the community chooses sides, those who once let a teenage boy take the fall for their crime are forced to raise the stakes. They kidnap Meg, leaving her to the mercy of the mountain. And a second rescue may be more than even Linc can manage....

4 Stars!

It's a third installment in Rebel Ridge series.

Meg Walker is an independent, strong woman who endured lost of hurt in her life!

Linc, her one true love, was wrongly convicted and sent to prison for a sin he claims he haven't done.

This story had me biting my lips and then my nails raw. Ah, all the mystery of who done what was truly enticing!
You just cant stop reading it!
There's action, there's mystery, there's true friendship and love!
So what's not to love about a book like this?

And it was so refreshing from everything that I read lately.
So I want to thank NetGalley and Harlequin MIRA for providing me with a copy to read and review(and enjoy!).

Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks

The Montgomerys and Armstrongs #2

In Highlander Most Wanted, a reclusive woman content to live in the shadows shows a Highland warrior the true meaning of love.
Genevieve McInnes is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen’s rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress—something warm, wicked, and tempting.
Bowen seizes his enemy’s keep, unprepared for the brooding and reclusive woman who captures his heart. He’s enchanted by her fierce determination, her unusual beauty, and her quiet, unfailing strength. But wooing her will take more than a seasoned seducer’s skill. For loving Genevieve, he discovers, means giving her back the freedom that was stolen from her—even if it means losing her forever.

Buddy reading with Aly and Maru

I give 4 Strong Stars!

Bowens and Genevieves story haven't puled me in from the beginning as I would have loved. I was struggling at first. Very much so. But I'm glad I am so stubborn!
And I'm thankful for my will and determination to finish this book for it was one of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read!
This is a beautiful and emotional story. I love drama, but there was too much of it, even for me. However, you can expect that from a heartbreaking story like this one.

I also enjoyed how well written this book is. The beauty of this language still amazes me, and I can't get enough of it!
M.B did a great job with this series and I bet next book will be a success as well!
