White Hot Kiss By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hey everyone, I have a Wicked Read to tell you about today!

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Layla is a half demon, half gargoyle. She was adopted by the gargoyles a species called the Wardens, at a young age from the foster care system.

Growing up she was taught that Wardens were protectors of humanity and the demons were evil. As a child she was raised to ignore her demon side and embrace her Warden side.

Now, as a teenager she just wants to be normal. She has never even kissed a boy because one kiss and their soul would be gone.

Every day after school since the age of thirteen she has gone out tagging demons to make it easier for the Wardens to rid the world of evil.

One day, after eating lunch with her school friends, she follows what she believes to be a Poser demon. To her surprise it is not a Poser demon. It is a Seeker demon and she is in way over her head.

When it seems like her demise is near an upper level demon intervenes. As she witnesses the upper level demon take out the seeker demon, she takes the opportunity to flee.

Upon returning home, she tells her Warden childhood friend Zayne, all about her day but leaves out the part about her encounter.

The next day she goes to school. It is like any other day. Until, the upper level demon she came across yesterday, enters her biology class.

Roth a demon as hot as sin,  knows more about her then she does including all her secrets.

There is good and there is evil, black and white.

But what happens when everything you have ever known becomes shades of gray?

I ABSOLUTELY FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! The story is out of this world creative, unique and imaginative! I loved the characters! I found myself going back and forth between team Zayne and team Roth! I was flying through this book! Near the end of the book, I could not believe I had tears in my eyes over having compassion for a demon! I was in kind of a reading slump which is VERY RARE for me. This book pulled me out of that slump!

Blow By Kim Karr (Adults Only)

Hey everyone, I have an action packed read to share with you today!

Blow by Kim Karr

Sometimes, even when it comes to family, a person can get caught in the middle of drama that can escalate to extreme trouble in the blink of an eye.

In Elle's case her drama began three months ago when her sister went missing. She moved to Boston to help care for her niece.

As far as the average person knew, her sister Lizzy, was in rehab.

According to her sister's husband Michael, he did not know where Lizzy was.


It soon became clear, Michael knew more than he let on. When a tough muscle type guy showed up at his law office at nearly the same time as she had.

While the muscle guy was in Michael's office, she could not help but notice the sexy man who had come with the frightening stranger.

Logan was born into two different worlds, a silver spoon business world on one side and being sucked into the Irish Mob on the other side.

His past continued to haunt him but he was determined to stay out of the drama as much as possible.


Elle stirred emotions in him that he never knew he was capable of feeling.

However, Michael had one week to set everything right or Elle and his daughter could end up being collateral damage.

Logan was warned not to get involved but the heart is not rational and has been known to casuse a person to take risks.

Will Logan risk everything for the woman who has made him feel alive in such a short time?


Are the stakes too high?

I REALLY enjoyed this read! The story was action packed all though out the book, steamy at just the right times and heart wrenching at other times. The story held my interest from beginning to end. I was very surprised at how it ended and it left me wanting more!


Best Wishes Always,

Pushing the Limits By Brooke Cumberland (Adults Only)

Hey everyone, I am back with a hot for teacher read!

Pushing the Limits by Brooke Cumberland

Aspen is a talented artist who lost her identical twin sister years ago in a freak accident. Art is her outlet, for dealing with her grief.

She avoids relationships and is comfortable with one night stands. Until, her art professor sparks up emotions she has never experienced before.

Morgan Hampton is an art professor who  has experienced his share of grief. His estranged brother passed away six months ago and he has returned to his hometown, where painful memories remain to raise his eleven year old niece.

He has not been able to bring himself to create art since losing his brother and having his heart shattered.

He sees talent and beauty in Aspen, but also sees her inner pain, that she tries desperately to hide.

Aspen has finally found someone who she connects with and who shares her passion, too bad that person is off limits.

Limits can be pushed but, are they worth the cost?

I  enjoyed this book it has a lot of heart and raw emotions. However, this book was not as gripping and fast paced as I would have liked. While it did interest me, it did not hold my interest from start to finish, in one sitting. I found myself putting it down at times but, I would come back to it it later.

Can't Resist Him By Molly McLain (Adults Only)

Hey everyone, I am back again with another great read to tell you about!

Can't Resist Him by Molly McLain

Jenny Riley has been unlucky when it comes to love. The guys she gets with never stay long enough for anything solid to form. The guys she gets with stick it and quit it. 

Reed is known for his playboy ways. So it should be no surprise when he dumps her. However, it still stings.

One night in Vegas changes everything, when Jenny crosses paths with a drunken yet undeniably sexy, tattooed Marine, Brody Nelson.

They both made memorable impressions on each other. Yet, they were not sure they would see one another again, as they never exchanged phone numbers while in Vegas.

As fate would have it they crossed paths a second time, at a mutual friends house. They could not deny the connection they share that goes further than just physical attraction. 

She wants someone who wants her for more than her body. While Brody can not deny her outward beauty, he also sees her inward beauty that no man has come to appreciate.

They both have their own inner demons to slay, but can they manage to slay them together or will their demons rip them apart?

I REALLY enjoyed this book! I love how they each called the other out on their insecurities. I enjoyed their stubbornness and playful banter. The only thing that really bothered me is Jenny's need for validation from a man. I get that she wanted what we all want, which is to love and be loved. However, I did not feel as though she loved and valued herself while she was single. How can a person expect to be loved by someone until they love themselves first? You should know your own value and not allow others to appraise you.

Falling for Danger By Chanel Cleeton (Adults Only)

Hey everyone, I am back with another five star read! The book I will be telling you about today is the third book in the Capital Confessions trilogy! The first book Flirting with Scandal (reviewed on April 18, 2015). The second book Playing with Trouble (reviewed on June 12, 2015. These can be read as a standalone as they are each about a different character, but I highly recommend reading the entire trilogy.

Falling for Danger by Chanel Cleeton

Kate Reynolds lost her fiancee, Matt Ryan, in a
Special Forces mission in Afghanistan. However, his body was never recovered and she is determined to find out what happened to him.

She has graduated from college and has landed herself a job as junior political analyst at the CIA.

Kate can't seem to shake the feeling that she is being watched.

One evening while she slept, she hears two men inside her apartment arguing. She grabs a baseball bat to defend herself only to discover the the men are fighting each other. One of the men runs off after getting what he was after. The other guy to her surprise was Matt.

Matt Ryan had been keeping an eye on Kate for quite sometime but when he discovered the love of his life may be in danger, he decided to come out of the shadows despite the risks.

Kate had never gotten over her grief of losing Matt. She just kept putting one foot in front of the other each and every day.

Now, here he was standing in front of her after all this time. 

War changes people and more often than not, soldiers return suffering from PTSD. He is not the same guy she fell in love with but deep down she was the one who kept him going. 

How does one keep going when the world thinks that you are dead?

Matt and Kate grew up in a town where power and money call the shots. The power players have secrets of destruction that they will do anything to keep buried.

In politics there are checks and balances for a reason. Sometimes we must remind the sharks to not bite the hands that feed them.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!! This one is my favorite of the trilogy. I loved this action packed read! It had me hooked from the beginning! I did not want to put it down! I literally only put it down when my tablet needed charging and to sleep! This is a very fast paced read that gets your blood pumping! I loved the story and the characters. I love how it brought to light how war affects people. I love how Kate never gave up on him. True love never dies and loyalty does count for something.

Stupid Love By Cindy Miles

Hey everyone, I know I am a little late to the blog this month, but I am kicking off this month with a five star read! The book I am sharing today is the third and final installment in the Stupid in Love trilogy. The first is Stupid Girl (reviewed on June 29, 2014) The second is Stupid Boy (reviewed on February 14, 2015) These books can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading all three!

Stupid Love by Cindy Miles

In life we are each taught life lessons based off our experiences.

Memory had learned to always live life to the fullest, after cheating death at a young age. She was known as the Winston Daredevil. She is all about having a good time and she's not against a casual hook-up.

Her closest friends did not even know about her near brush with death. She did not want their pity.

Now, at the age off twenty-two, a senior in college, she is happy living it up with her friends.

On the way home from a party, her jeep breaks down and she calls for a tow.

Jace Beaumont, the tow truck guy, is a very focused and determined guy who has no patience for the party scene. 

Memory certainly lives up to her name and Jace cannot get her off his mind no matter how hard he tries.

He wants a woman he can have a future with.


Memory has a secret, she may not have a future to live.

I LOVED this book! I love how Memory is so blunt. She made me laugh but also frustrated at times. I love how Jace is so sweet and has traditions and values. The characters and story felt real. This story made me feel so many emotions.
