(Teaser) Dark Lover by JR Ward


            "Look, I'm going to take off. This was just--"
          Wrath was in front of her faster than she could blink. "I can't
      let you go."
          Fear licked her heart, but she put up a good front. "You
    can't make me stay."
          His hands lifted to her face. She jerked back but he
     wouldn't let go.
          The pad of his thumb stroked her cheek. Whenever he got
       too close, she became spellbound and it happened again. She
       felt her body swaying toward his.
           "I'm not lying to you," he said. "Your father sent me to you
      Because you're going to need my help. Trust me."

Teaser.....Dark Lover, p 111

  The human reached inside Wrath's jacket and stated pulling out weapons. Three throwing stars, a switch-blade, a handgun, a length of chain.
"Jesus Christ," the cop muttered as he dropped the steel links on the ground with the rest of the load. "You got some ID" Or wasn't there enough room in here for a wallet, considering you're carrying about thirty pounds of concealed weapons?"

Stay tuned, more to come....

Taking a Breather.

I have decided that over the Holiday Season I will be doing a few re-reads I have been wanting to do. I am not going to obligate myself to read anything "new" although I may if the urge hits. I have several books on my TBR list that I really wanted to get done before 2011 comes to a close but, if it doesn't happen, NO STRESS! I am really glad I decided to start up this blog, I have had so much fun and wasted so much time where, normally, I could have been catching up on my Beauty Sleep.

So, what will I be doing these next few weeks if not posting reviews?? As I said I have several books I have been wanting to re-read so...

Starting this evening, I am going to be posting Teasers each day. I will pick a favorite line/lines from whichever book I may be reading and I will be posting them. These will be teasers NOT spoilers. Enjoy!

Happy Reading!! :-)

Covet: A Fallen Angels Novel by JR Ward

4 Stars

Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about-his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charge with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin DiPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that-until fate intervenes in the form of a tough- talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior. But then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart-and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.

My Thoughts; First, I feel I must express how much I have fell in love with the way Ward puts her pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard, whatever). She has very easily become one of my favorite authors. That being said here is the 411 on Covet.

The book for me started kinda slow. It didn't completely suck me in from page one like The Brotherhood did but a couple chapters in and I was hooked. The setting is Caldwell, NY (which I am seriously considering a vacation to). There are also characters that we met in the BDB series and I loved getting more of their story. Marie-Terese is a exceptional human being that has been forced into a really terrible situation by life's circumstance. Vin is the typical, If-I-want-it-I-will-buy-it type of guy. He is trying so hard to escape his childhood he doesn't realize he isn't living. And Jim, bless his heart, he just wants to do right but in most cases he is clueless. He needs to learn so much. And luckily we have two "Happy Helpers" that come along to show him the ropes. I have a feeling we will become fast friends. ;) The WARDen has a way of writing characters. I fall head over heels for the "good guys", and completely despise the "bad guys" and my sixth sense usually helps me pick out the bad apple even when it isn't blatantly obvious. I can't wait to read the next two in this series. I think they are just going to get better with each passing book!

Happy Reading!! :)

Destined (A House of Night Novel) by PC Cast and Kristin Cast

3 Stars

Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet – which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together – if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow…
But there are new forces at work at the House of Night. An influx of humans, including Lenobia’s handsome horse whisperer, threatens their precarious stability. And then there’s the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppingly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more – or possibly less – than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there’s something strangely familiar about him…
Will Neferet’s true nature be revealed before she succeeds in silencing them all? And will Zoey be able to touch Aurox’s humanity in time to protect him – and everyone – from his own fate? Find out what’s destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

My thoughts; I started this series a couple years ago, and for reasons I have yet to understand, I keep coming back again and again. There is nothing awe-inspiring about the story. The characters, while I love each one of them in my own little way, are kind of recycled. (Ok, maybe that only makes sense in my head) I feel like they are for the most part exactly the same as when we all met in book one, which was like a bazillion books ago. Despite all they have been through, I don't feel like they have grown/matured/changed. I do realize that although I have been reading this series for a couple of years, and even though there have been (I reiterate) a bazillion books, I don't think they have made it through more than a full school year. I really wish this series had been done in several larger books with a end evident anywhere in the future. I feel it is being strung out and I fear that one day a new one will come out and I will just not pick it up. It is not in my nature to leave a series like this, unfinished. It is a major character flaw..... I am working on it. =)

Ok, now for the upside. I really do love the story. I can't wait to see how it will all come to an end. I have cried, laughed, gotten completely and insanely mad! I end each book thinking why do I have to wait for another. And YES, I will read it as soon as it comes out. Because no matter how I feel about the length of the series, it has that little "something" that it takes to keep me involve in the lives of these characters. I can't wait to see how things go down with Neferet. Kalona is back and well let's just say he is back. Aurox's secret is yet to be revealed to everyone and the fall out from that could be catastrophic! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who would like a short read and doesn't mind having to wait out an end.
Happy Reading!! :)
