Author: Jamie Grey

Series: Star Thief Chronicles (#2)

Genre: science fiction, romance

Audience: New Adult/ Young Adult

Publication Date: 26th August 2014

Publisher: Clever Crow Press

Blurb:

It’s Renna’s biggest job yet – convincing MYTH leadership that she’s put away her lock picks and is ready to save the galaxy, despite the dangerous implant in her brain. But with the Athena on the run, she’s working solo and facing her most ruthless enemy, the traitor Pallas, who’ll go to any lengths to destroy the MYTH organization. Including framing Renna for a devastating assault on MYTH HQ that leaves their defenses crippled and hundreds dead.   Now that MYTH believes she’s a dangerous double-agent, Renna escapes their firing squad before they put more holes in her than a pair of fishnet stockings. But the ticking time-bomb in her head is the one thing Pallas needs to complete his master plan and he’s not about to let her get away. Even worse, he’s discovered the only thing that will bring Renna to her knees – threatening Captain Nick Finn.  Out of time and options, Renna’s got one shot to take down the traitor before he annihilates everything she loves, even though winning this battle may cost her everything.

My Rating: 4.5/5 stars

 

My Review:

Wow! Jamie Grey has created a completely unique science fiction novel.  The reader was once again drawn into Renna’s world. Although I enjoyed the first book this sequel was ten times better. Despite the fact this novel is written in third person it was easy to become attached to the characters. Particularly Renna as she was feisty and easy to relate to. Sometimes I find it hard to keep up with what’s going on in these kind of books but I had no problem with this one. From the very beginning the readers attention is grabbed and they find themselves desperate to find out what will happen next. The author leaves her readers on the edge of there seats and leaves them wanting more. This novel is jammed full of action, drama, romance and adventure.

Overall this was a brilliant sequel full of action and romance. I can’t wait to read more of Jamie Grey’s books as I enjoyed this series very much. I would recommend anyone looking for something a bit different to read to give this series a try.

Publication Date: November 2014

Blurb:

Word count: ~70,000

It’s been four years since twenty-year-old Jessica Hayes has been home, but when she discovers her father is dying, she must return to her hometown in South Carolina and face her past. Jessica thought patching up her relationship with her father would be her biggest challenge, but when she runs into Ryan Dawson—the catalyst of all her problems—she wonders if coming home was a mistake.

Ryan knows he screwed up. Hell, he paid the price…with interest. But when he runs into his best friend’s little sister, Jessica, he’s reminded that his debt will never truly be paid. He may have turned his life around, but he can’t undo the damage. So, he does what he should have done all those years ago. He stays away from Jessica, and all the other personal demons that still haunt him.

Jessica thought she wanted nothing to with Ryan, but something is different about him and she needs to know why. When she discovers the truth behind his change, she puts her troubles aside and tries to help him. But is putting her heart back in the line of fire worth disrupting her stable life back in Ohio, or will the past repeat itself, leaving her brokenhearted once again?

My Rating: 4.25/5 stars

My Review:

This fast paced novel pulls the reader in and leaves them wanting more. Lee Murray draws the reader in using her original plot and likeable characters. Although I thoroughly enjoyed this book there is still one unanswered question, what happened to Adam’s mum? At a few points in the book I thought we were getting closer as new information was discovered but nothing ever developed into finding his mum. ‘Misplaced’ was purely focused on Adam’s emotions and his life during the months after the disappearance of his mum. By the end of the novel Adam was still no closer to finding his mum and it seemed unlikely she would be found anytime soon. The author left questions unanswered which gave her book a unique aspect. This novel wouldn’t have been as good as it was without the phenomenal plot.

Now on with the reveal🙂

Author: Emma Hart

Series: Wild (#1)

Genre: romance, erotica, contemporary

Audience: Adult

Publication Date: 18th August 2014

Blurb:

In this sexy new CALL series spin-off series by New York Times bestseller Emma Hart, enter the intense world of a no strings relationship and experience addiction like you never expected…
The moment I walked in to find Mr. Tall, Dark, Handsome, and Oh So British–my mind-blowing one night stand–as my photographer for the shoot that could change it all, I knew life was throwing me a curveball.
The moment he, Tyler Stone, walked into my best friend’s apartment, I knew that curveball was heading straight for my gut.
The hit comes in the form of a no-strings proposition… One that gives him utter control over my body.
If I surrender, that curveball is steadily en-route for a collision course with my heart.
He’s a sex addict. I’m a love addict.
This is temptation.

Excerpt:

(Unedited and subject to change or removal before publication.)
Tyler grabs my arm and tugs me into what looks like an office. He closes the door behind us and spins me into him. “You really are a feisty little thing, aren’t you?”
“Fuck you, asshole.” I glare up at him, shaking his hand from my arm and stepping back.
“Damn, Liv, why don’t you tell me how you really feel?” he says with a smirk.
“Why? So it can go right over your egotistically enlarged head?”
“I might consider it for a moment… Actually, on second thought, you’re right. I won’t pay any attention.”
“You are the most arrogant, self-entitled, patronizing bastard I’ve ever had the displeasure of meeting in my life,” I hiss anyway. “And before you mention the pleasure, because you inevitably will, you should know the displeasure far outweighs the measly amount of pleasure you’ve given me.”
Tyler’s eyes darken and he closes in on me, grabbing the back of my head and pulling me into him. His fingers thread through my hair and tug my head back so I’m looking at him, and, “Measly bit of pleasure? Didn’t seem so small when you were screaming my name and begging for more.”
“Clearly you’ve never watched When Harry Met Sally. That movie taught a woman everything she needs to know about faking it.”
He presses his lips to mine in a crash of teeth and a tangle of tongue. He grips my hip and pulls me toward him forcefully, his grasp on my hair never easing as he sweeps his tongue through my mouth. The zinging tension of earlier is back, except this time it’s worse and it’s swirling around us and holding us together. Holding his mouth against mine, our bodies flush together.
My anger swiftly changes to desire at the feel of his teeth nibbling my bottom lip, and a whimper leaves me involuntarily when he pulls away.
“I don’t believe for a second you fake it, Liv.” He ghosts his nose along my jawline. “I can feel the realness of your reaction in your body. I saw it earlier—I felt it earlier. My fingers barely brushed your gorgeous arse and you moved away as if I’d run them along your pussy. Your body responds to me whether you want it to or not, and it does it so clearly. So obviously.”
“My body is a liar,” I breathe when he sucks on my earlobe lightly.
“Much like you.” His words are spoken again my skin with a gentle brush of his lips.
“My dislike of you is no lie, Tyler.”
“Well, your body didn’t get the memo, babe. Your body likes me. A fucking lot.”
