How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf (Naked Werewolf, #1)How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a fun story, it was a quick and easy read for me with lot's of laugh out loud moments. It wasn't the normal passion, angst impending doom looming everywhere normal book I tend to fall into, and for that I'm thankful. I needed a good, quick pick me up. With a great dialog and spunky characters it was a great change of pace, but I am ready for a more challenging read with a more passionate story line and maybe even a little more depth. BUT this was the perfect buffer :)

This is my first Molly Harper book and I have to admit the lithe and easy plot was nice, like a glass of water on a warm day, not a glass of sweating lemonade in a heat wave, but still subtle and comfortable.
It was sweet, funny and sometimes a bit eccentric, but really a easy going plot. A fun love story than you see from a mile away, but it's ok because it was still yummy. The private moments (smexy time) wasn't over whelming or all consuming which was a nice change of pace in the adult paranormal world.

Connor is a ruff, sexy mans man and completely blush worth while Mo is a feisty life infused character with a great sense of humor and will have you chuckling, giggling and out right laughing along with her dialog.

A story well, done I recommend this if you want something soft (not young adult though) that flows. Just a easy going read to relieve us from all the intense stories we often find in most genres now.

Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1)Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wowzer! Not disappointed in the least! Great book! Review to come!

Holy hell talk about ecstasy! This book was stuffed full with passion and angst. I ENJOYED & HATED this book. Frustrated overwhelmed me at time, I felt myself saying ‘come on and do the dirty already’ And holy cow, when they finally do **fans herself** brace yourself laddies, lots of emotion and passion in this story.

The hate goes more with the ending and the fact that Cat can't get past being half vampire. He constant inner dialog with accepting who she is and how Bones feels about her is exhausting sometimes. I kept screaming 'if you don't want him, give him to me!' then had to remind myself 'just a story Alex, just a story' but make no mistake, Bones is the perfect fantasy. He had me giggling, blushing and down right fanning myself.

If you are looking for a story pact with heat, almost electrifying and romance with so much passion you feel like shaking your fist at god for not sending you your own Bones then this is the story for you.

I always know when I read a truly awesome love story because I always storm into my husbands office or personal space and practically scream 'why can't you be more like (insert lovers name here)' and then huff and storm away. Though he has grown used to this behavior and often Google's who he should emulate for that week, I know that the story is amaze balls! This is one of those stories... I think my hubby is on Google now hehehe.

Give it a try ya'll!

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #2)Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LOVE, LOVE, LOVVVEEE this series! Review to come. A must read! The first book is AMAZING! This one not quite as good as the first but still amazing and my favorite series of the new year!

Attractive, beautiful, culminating, paradisiac, out-of-this-world and poetic. I loved this book, and I love this series! Even with all the beauty this book is bursting with, it still has the longing and primitive story it always carries. The dark and twisty moments still covered with love and passion. Not at all disappointing.

So often sequels dull and dim in comparison to a first book, especially when the first was as epic as the beginning to this series. That is definitely not the case with this book. It is filled with every emotion the good and the bad, this book forces you to feel everything. The world is painted to artistically you can taste and smell it. I love the writing, its poetic and flows seamlessly.

The war, avengement and savagery in this story that you're flipping through the pages with vengeance. It was literally impossible for me to remove myself from the story. The book was filled with action and mystery and kept you begging for more and wishing it would never end. I can't even write this review, I don't know how to explain adequately the amazing magnitude of this series and this book.

I truly hope everyone gives this series a try, I know I'm glad I did.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1)Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW!! OMG I loved this book, I literally can't even believe how surprised by this book I was! Review to come!! MUST HAVE SECOND BOOK!!

Finally have a second to breath and catch up on reviews!
For starters I loved this book! Not at all what I was expecting and the description, cover and title doesn't do it justice! I adored Laini's writing and found it poetic and peaceful, though the plot was anything but.

I try try to never make my reviews like a blurb on the book, just the nitty gritty 411 on the book, so with that being said, READ THIS.
The main character is easy to follow and she has the perfect amount of strength and vulnerability to make her the perfect heroin, but my favorite character is her best friend Zuzana. All the characters were amazing though and the love story was perfect, and the ending, omg can you say cliff hanger! So glad I had the second one ready to go :)

This is a story filled with everything, all emotions. You want a fun read with plenty of laugh out loud moments? Then read this! You want a book with a little morbidity and plenty of action and adventure? Then read this! You want a book filled with poetic descriptions that read like silk? Then READ THE BOOK! Seriously just try it!

A warning the first couple chapters you feel like you are missing parts or a previous book, but just stick with it everything unfolds perfectly!

Sentinel (Covenant, #5)Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fan girl mode! OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! LOVED IT!!!

Okay slightly calmer and remote coherency acquired to formulate a review.

Wow! From the beginning I was sucked in, and I have to admit there was a semi long break in between the books, and still I saw the whole series in my mind embedded together like I was really there! I love this series and can’t believe it’s over! Some would say this book wasn't great and the ending was horrible and I would argue against that point voraciously, because I felt of all the potential endings this one was perfection! I ugly cried, laughed out loud, had slight heart palpitations and literally screamed with both joy and frustrations on more that one occasion! So much passion and emotion was thrown into this story you almost feel high on life when it ends, until you remember this is it. No more roller-coaster ride.
I am going to miss Aiden and Seth and bad-ass Alex, I'm going to have withdrawal from all the twists and turns in their unique and original adventure created by Jennifer L. Armentrout, this world was amazing and captivating, I can’t wait to see what she does next!
But more about this book, I saw so many mixed reviews I actually put it off, especially after my treacherous divergent calamity. But alas this was a perfect end to the series. Alex (Main Character) continued to grow into the strong heroine she has always been, and Aiden *swoon* still had butterflies flapping away in my tummy! Oh! And Seth and Apollo! I love the dynamics in this last story and the dialog was not lacking in the least. If you are nervous like I was that the book might not offer you the closure you so deserve after falling so hard for these enslaving characters and story worry not, this book will not let you down.
The love story continues, and so do the trials and tribulations of saving the world, with the help of the god’s you even get some one on one time with Athena.
Mostly I just missed reading a book that literally had every emotion and action enclosed, this book didn't fail to deliver. You have heart racing romance, fear, mystery, heart wrenching sadness and overcoming happiness. It’s packed with action and adventure and twists and turns you wouldn't see coming, but once you do think “hell yeah”.
Over all amazing, fantastic, perfection, divine and mesmerizing story and anyone who is thinking about reading this series need to get on it.. Like now! It’s totally worth it!
