    As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body - and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

    Hands down one of the best paranormal romance series EVER! Most tend to get stale after too many books, but this one keeps getting better and better. This is number 14 in the Immortals After Dark series and it is as fresh as the first. I love how Ms. Cole weaves the timelines of her books together and revisits moments we have seen by other characters in previous books. It's just brilliant! I wish I could give this book (and the series) 10 stars!

    No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for Katy, he wasn't fooling around. Doubting him isn't something she'll do again and now that they've made it through the rough patches, well, there's a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can't protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they loved. With help coming from the most unlikely source and Adam's death still lingering with those who loved him, friends will become the deadliest of enemies and the villains will no longer be clear.

    This series just keeps getting better and better with every book. And the cliffhanger ending – WOW! I both love and hate Jennifer Armentrout for her incredible endings. This book was definitely more intense than the first two as emotions run high with the return of Dawson and the hunt for Beth. I don’t want to give away any spoilers – so I’ll just say this is another amazing story by a very talent author.

    5 Stars!

    Emma looks forward to the day when she can let go of her past - both of them. After more than a year on the run, with clues to her parents' whereabouts within her grasp, she may finally find a place to settle down. Start a new life. Maybe even create new memories with a new family. But the past rises to haunt her and to make sure there's nowhere on the planet she can hide. Declan Burke wants his wife back, and with a little manipulation and a lot of reward money, he's got the entire world on his side. Except for the one man she dreads confronting the most: Noah Tucker.

    Story

    This was a thrilling conclusion to the 2-part Archetype series (my favorite of 2014). Much like the first book, this was chock-full of action, romance and endless plot twists. It had the perfect blend of everything I enjoy in a romance novel. Some people might be turned off by the sci-fi/dystopian aspect of this book, but at it's heart this is a love story. There are plenty of swoon-worthy moments and it's not filled with endless pages of meaningless sex scenes.
    Khristine Hvam is one of my favorite narrators and she did an excellent job of capturing the heart and soul of Emma.
    I LOVED this book and can't recommend it enough.

    From the start I was instantly drawn into this story. Told in duel points of view, it was such a mesmerizing listen. The narrators did an excellent job of bringing this well written and unique story to life. It made me feel transported to another place and time and I became utterly lost within the words.

    These Broken Stars is a story of survival and love, set in a sci-fi world, with intriguing mysteries to solve, that will have you listening late into the night. There are so many twists and turns and “I didn’t see that coming” moments. It will have you guessing almost to the very end.

    This was such an unexpected gem of a book. 5 HUGE stars!!

    I’m writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging. In fact, you probably know too many things and know them far too well. Who am I? Well, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I was a whore in my youth, a killer since my adolescence, and a monster as a man. I am the man who kidnapped Livvie. I am the man who held her in a dark room for weeks. But, most importantly, I am the man she loves. She loves me. It’s quite sick, isn’t it? Of course, there’s more to our story than can be surmised in a few short sentences, but I’m at a loss for justifying my behavior back then.

    Story

    This narrator was like listening to a robot read a text book. There was no emotion whatsoever and no change from one character to the next. Definitely not a good choice for a romance/erotic story. This was a great conclusion to the series and I enjoyed the POV of Caleb but the narration just ruined it for me. If you enjoyed the first two books do yourself a favor and skip the audio - get the print version instead.

    I loved this conclusion to the Blackstone Affair. Ethan is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. Even though this could have been an epilogue I am so glad the author decided to give us a fourth book instead. I love Ethan and Brynne and I enjoyed this final journey of love and healing. It was the perfect conclusion. I also love Shane East and Grace Grant as the narrators.

Dani is a demi-vamp, the daughter of a human psychic and a vampire noble, a living secret kept hidden for 21 years. As Dani’s heritage manifests itself, her thirst for blood is matched only by her hunger for Chase Diedrick.

    Story

    Overall I did enjoy this book and I did like the concept of a half-human half-vampire lead character. However, this book lacked some serious editing. The story was choppy and there were way too many plot twists and turns that just didn’t make sense. It seemed as though the author threw everything but “the kitchen sink” into this story. It was a little over the top in my opinion. Thankfully this is a very entertaining book at the right price. For that reason I will most likely move on to the 2nd installment.

    The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne. Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army. Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

    Story

    Ruin and Rising is a beautiful and emotional ending to a fantastic trilogy. I absolutely loved this book and I could not put it down. I lost a lot of sleep over this one and I must say it was well worth the sleepless nights. Much like the previous two books this was a rich story with well-developed characters and plenty of plot twists and turns.

    The final installment ties up many loose ends and comes to an absolutely satisfying conclusion. Although many were disappointed by the ending (mainly the love story) I thought the author did a wonderful job of pulling off a love quadrangle. There was never a “clear choice” for Alina and I believe the story came to a logical and satisfying ending.

    I cared so much for these characters, including the villain; he was so cruel, calculating and absolutely evil but I still found him completely mesmerizing. Kudos to Bardugo’s brilliant writing!

    I’m sad to let this story and these characters go, but I look forward to more from such a talented author.

    5 HUGE stars!!

    In this thrilling conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, Karou is still not ready to forgive Akiva for killing the only family she's ever known. When a brutal angel army trespasses into the human world, Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat--and against larger dangers that loom on the horizon. They begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves--maybe even toward love.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown - or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose - and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.
