Fearless by Tawny Weber #Review

star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48

This book was a fast steamy read.

Gia has a fantasy man in Luke, good looking, charming and sweet, but never seems to notice Gia, so Gia creates a altar ego called Vanna, Vanna is everything Gia is not, but after some steamy interactions you hope Luke can see past all the glitz and glamour that is Vanna, and see Gia underneath.

I found this book to be fun and entertaining, Gia really goes out of her comfort zone to seduce Luke although I would never go to the lengths she does to get his attention, I found it fun to imagine what it would be like.

all up a very entertaining read and I would highly recommend it.

The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?

My Thoughts

star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48

This book was Amazing!! I could not put it down, and after being in a reading slump this is just what I needed to get reading again.  Red Queen first of all the cover oh my god I did not even read the blurb first I just had to have it, so simple and clean but gets the message across wonderfully.

I would recommend Red Queen to anyone that enjoys The Hunger Games and the Selection novels.  The people are segregated into two groups the silvers which are determined by their blood, it is coloured silver and they have magical abilities, and the Reds which the people bleed red and are used as the workers, common people and slaves. The usual story in a dystopian, but except for Mare who is a red born and bred, but has magical abilities that she can not control, she is so special that the Elites pretend that she is one of them, but we all know that you cannot pretend to be someone you are not forever.

Red queen is a struggle for power between those who have it and those who don’t but also a struggle to right wrongs and make the reds equals. I highly recommend this book and I cannot wait for the next instalment to be released, do your self a favour and click the Amazon link above and get this incredible book.

My Thoughts

star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48

Nella is a straight forward character, she knows what she needs and knows how to get it. Her Husband Michael is a top CEO and Nella has come up with a unique way to help him cope with everyday stress.  This book  was a bit of a guilty pleasure, for once instead of the woman getting controlled and bdsm, it is the opposite Nella is in complete control although it was a bit uncomfortable in some spots, over all Ross has brought a unique story from this series.

Sienna knows that she’s got a good thing going with her boyfriend, Charlie. He’s attentive, loyal, and seriously hot. When he sets Sienna up with a very unusual gift, she’s both shocked and intrigued. But she’s worried as well – accepting Charlie and his gift will test all of their limits and the strength of their relationship.

My Thoughts

star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48

Sienna is another very complex character from this series, she is a woman that has everything including the perfect boyfriend Charlie, however this is a sweet sexy story about fantasies. Charlie Surprises Sienna with the perfect gift which will test the boundaries of their relationship. I really didn’t enjoy Sienna as a person I don’t know if it is just that she is younger than the rest of the women but nothing really stood out for me in this story, yes it was enjoyable short story with the prerequisite steamyness, but I am not finding the stories as enjoyable as I was, now it is beginning to drag a bit I am hoping that the next ones really shake it up a bit as it is getting a bit boring as they seem to be all about the same.

Danger is hard to resist in this sexy thriller from Becca Fitzpatrick, theNew York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.

Brit Pheiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn’t prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants;but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.

Britt is forced to guide the men off the mountain, and knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target.

But nothing is as it seems, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?

Black Ice is New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick’s riveting romantic thriller set against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Falling in love should never be this dangerous.

My Thoughts

star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48

I usually hate Murder Mysteries, but this one wow, I picked it because I love Becca Fitzpatrick’s books, so I gave it a go and wow I am glad I did.

Britt has been training to backpack the Teton Range, she has taught her self survival skills as well as working on her fitness, all to impress her ex boyfriend who may be joining her and her best friend on this holiday.  At first glance Britt, is superficial and annoyingly reliant on people to save her, but as soon as she finds herself and Korbie sheltering in a cabin with two strangers to wait out a storm, she begins to feel uneasy, until they are taken captive by Shaun and Mason, Britt can either rely on herself, her smarts and her survival skills, or she can wait for the ex boyfriend to save her.

Korbie is horrible, she is jealous, dumb and I did not like one thing about her, she is Calvin’s (The Ex) sister and she is only worried about her own survival.  Shaun is Charming and Smooth but something is off about him, and Mason is quiet, reserved and you don’t know too much about him.  Calvin is a dick which makes you wonder why Britt loves him so much, although he comes looking for the girls when they don’t show up at the Cabin he is obnoxious and treats Britt horrid.

Over all the Characters are Amazing, you either hate them or love them but either way they all fit into the story perfectly. I love seeing Britt change and learn to adapt to any situation to survive, and stumbling across some clues from a recent spat of disappearances, it is a book you just can’t put down till the end.

My Thoughts

star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48

I really like Lana, she is a very complex character, at the start she is a man eater, that visits her friends restaurant a lot to pick up young toy boys. Everything changes for Lana after picking a waiter up and taking him home, she reveals a secret fantasy, one which her waiter just so happens can help her realise.  I love how Lana is open about her sexuality, this whole series is about strong successful women taking what they want without apologies, they are who they are.

I am really loving this series, very hot, and sexy no holds barred sex. Successful women getting what they want, when they want it. If you love short sexy reads this series is a must.

She thought it was the end of the world… But it was only the beginning of the end.

It’s been three months since Amy escaped New Hope. Since she’s seen Baby, or Kay, or Rice. And she’s been surviving on her own, like she did before she was “rescued” and taken to what she thought was a safe haven. Then, in the midst of foraging for supplies, her former fellow Guardian’s voice rings out in her earpiece. And in a desperate tone, Kay utters the four words Any had hoped she would never hear:

Dr. Reynolds has Baby.

Now it’s a race against time, for Baby is in imminent danger, her life threatened by the malevolent doctor who had helped start the end of the world. In order to save Baby, Amy will have to make her way to Fort Black, a former prison-turned-survivor colony. There she will need to find Ken—Kay’s brother—for he holds the key to Baby’s survival.

But before she can do any of this, she’ll have to endure the darkest places—and people—of the prison. And one small slip-up could not only cost Baby and Amy their lives, but threaten the survival of he people in the After.

Demitria Lunetta has created an utterly compelling conclusion to the story she set forth in In the After. Readers of the Hunger Games trilogy will not be able to pit down this book, which is gripping from beginning to end.

My Thoughts

star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48star_1_48

Such an amazing end, to bad In the After is only a duology and not a trilogy or even more I really think that this world could have a lot of potential, I loved this series and hope that spin off’s will be made.

Amy has escaped New hope and is back to surviving on her own, I really feel for her with this because even though she was surviving on her own before baby, being separated is terrible, Amy finds out that Baby has been taken by  The horrible Dr Reynolds and is “testing” her.  The horror of knowing what this evil man is capable of and now has innocent Baby really makes your blood boil, but it gives Amy a new mission. To save Baby.

Amy makes her way to Fort black to find Kay’s brother who may be able to help her save Baby.  Fort Black is like a slap in the face for Amy, after surviving on her own for so long, in Fort black life is pretty much Anarchy, to survive untouched Amy meets a guy called Jacks who will help her find Ken, but first in order to save Baby and survive Fort Black she must give herself to Jacks and let him own her, as are the rules in Fort Black.

Lunetta paints such a vivid picture in her writing from the pristine, regulated New Hope to the Anarchy and Mayhem of Fort Black you get to see the worst and best of human kind in a crisis and the different ways they adapt to survive.

Amy is such a strong character that I loved seeing her have to live under the rule of a man owning her, it was a great seeing her interactions with Jacks and the other characters that are owned in Fort black.

All up I Love the whole In the After Series, but I want more!  please make some spin-offs, I could not put it down and highly recommend the series.

What a great way to kick of a new kinky series about Sydney Housewives by Australian Authors.

I would really like to say how much I love the covers for this series, super eye catching that dragged me in straight away.

Virginia is one of the elite with successful businesses and living in a penthouse, She has it all or at least that is what everyone thinks.  In reality Virginia’s husband has left and to fill the void she frequents a bar dressed down and picks up men.

I love how Virginia owns the fact that she is happy to dress down and go to a bar just to pick up men, she is not shamed and dirty for doing it but empowered and strong.  Of course being a novella we don’t really get to dive into Virginia’s life too deeply but it is definitely a hot sexy read that I enjoyed reading.

I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series and hope that through the other women we might get a deeper picture of the characters, definitely entertaining, hot and steamy for a first novella in a series and I am hooked.  On to the next one.

Wow, where to start, when I started reading The Infinite Sea I was a bit confused on who was who, but quickly became immersed in the characters lives again.

I love how Mr Yancey has such a deep understanding of call his characters, you cannot say that there is a main character in his book, as It is told in a few different POV’s At first I was frustrated I don’t like multiple POV and I didn’t really like Ringer but towards the end of the book she really stood out after really getting to the nitty gritty of who she was, You are really rooting for her. Usually in dystopian/Sci-fi books you have one hero the one person throughout all the books that you know is going to save the world, but with this series just as you have that figured out someone else pops up all hero like and keeps you guessing. I have no idea what is next to come all I know is that I couldn’t put this book down and I can’t wait till 2015 for the next instalment.

Highly recommended reading for anyone who likes Dystopian and Sci-fi hell even just Y.A as I am only just getting my feet wet in the whole
Sci-fi Genre.
