Goodreads: For almost two years now, Kiera's boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she's ever wanted: loving, tender and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together, Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university, everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart.

Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source—a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he's purely a friend that she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes...and none of them will ever be the same.

I found this book on netgalley and really wanted to read it, i wasnt dissapointed it was amazing.

Kira moves from Ohio to to Seattle to be with boyfriend of two years Denny. They move in with Denny's friend rock star Kellan Kyle. When Denny is called away from work Kira finds comfort in Kellan. What starts of as a friendship soon turns in to something far more. When Denny drops everything to return to Kira she is riddled with guilt over her feelings for Kellan. Caught in a love triangle Kira must choose between her safe life with her love of two years Denny or her passioned filled life with Kellan. With Denny wanting to move to Australia and have a comfortable life there and Kellan's admission of love Kira must choose. will she pick a risky life of passion or stay on the safe road?  

I loved this book! from the first chapter i was hooked. i fell in love with the characters straightway! I got so involved in the story! i remember one day i was reading it and Kellan said something harsh to Kira and i walked out my house upset and angry pouring my heart out i just got so involved! I think this story will stay with me for awhile. I think it was because it was so well written and so close to situations that happen in real life.

  I feel in love with Kellan! who wouldn't he is described to bed amazingly hunky! and looks something like the guy on the right. I loved the fact that he is this hard rock star, he has raw passion, blazing anger, heated passion and a seductive smile. but underneath all that charm you see this vulnerable side that Kira brings out, you see that boy that got beaten by his father, was hated by his parents and had never felt love. I loved his macho side  but loved the Kellan that cried over losing Kira even more!

Kira was slightly irritating, i know she loved Denny and i know she loved Kellan but her bed hopping got on my nerves.  She seemed to whine about everything! and sometimes was a shrinking violet. The most irritating thing is after Denny leaves she doesn't tell Kellan that she is in love with him and just lets him walk away! (even when he is sweet enough to write songs for her and get a tatoo that reminds him of her)

Although i loved Denny, his goofy grin and warm brown eyes i still loved Kellan more he didn't have that hotness that Kellan has. he a sweet goody goody while Kellan has that bad boy but sweet thing going on!

I cant wait to read Effortless! i want to see what happens to Kira and Kellan! i would definitely recommend this book and i wanna read it again! I think this is a book that will stay with me for a long time!

Goodreads:He will keep her safe, no matter what it takes.

Someone—or something—is stalking Abby Marcheson. Luckily, she as her brother’s hunky friend Seth to keep her safe. Abby falls easily into her protected life, with Seth constantly by her side, and when he asks her out on a date, she’s eager to accept.

But Seth is much more than he seems. A Nephilim, a son of Angels with wings of his own, Seth is bound to spend his life hunting the Shemyaza, evil descendants of Angels. He’s kept his wings hidden from Abby in order not to frighten her, but as her stalker becomes bolder, Seth begins to suspect that a Shem has Abby in its sights…

As their flirtation escalates into full-blown passion, Seth is torn. Should he reveal his true nature to the beautiful, trusting Abby? Will she accept him, wings and all, or will Abby flee her guardian angel and fall prey to the sinister force that wishes her harm?

Goodreads:Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.

Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-hour hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend.

The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead.

Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good.

Goodreads: I gasped, or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked my breath in and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh.

Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of her having written the bestselling book The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she’s found herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name.

But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: Her incubus is not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the demon, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this supernatural lover from her heart

A Promise to love
Anne Kramer and Mike Hendricks

I was looking forward to reading a promise to love after i finished Love and pain.

The Story starts where it left off and follows Ming's life after she recovers from breast cancer. After establishing a relationship with the charming Nick who was there for her during her treatment. The story follows their relationship as they try to establish their home together and make it work from half way across America. Ming is happy at work and working on establishing her career as a doctor. But with tension between her and nick growing ,a shock twin brother and opportunities to go abroad will Ming get her happy ending? 

Just like the first book this one was equally as heart warming it shows that in some cases there is a life after breast cancer! Again i would love to have seen the book expanded but it is good as a short story. I think this book provided a lovley end to what happend to all the people in the story.

reading the two books together provided a heart warming story!

Love And Pain
Anne Kramer and Mike Hendricks

I got Given this book to read by Anne on twitter so had no idea what to expect but i enjoyed reading the book and thought it was a heart warming story and also an effective way to help promote Breast cancer awareness!

Ming has just graduated from med school and has her whole life ahead of her! living in California she has plans and ambitions to become a doctor and open her own surgery but her plans are halted when she experiences pain in her breast, thinking it is nothing Ming goes to have it checked and discovers she has stage one breast cancer. the book follows her journey through surgery and therapy, her climb to get her dream job and her experience of finding love.

I really enjoyed the book it was heart warming seeing how her family and friends all pulled together to support Ming. i would like to have seen the book expanded  a bit more so you have more information about how Ming was feeling going through this experience but as the book is short i thing the descriptions that are detailed in the book are adequate. The book is a lovely read and can be read rather quickly has it is only 104 pages.

I enjoyed seeing the lifes of all the characters play out. I loved Mings brother Aiden as he reminded me of my own and in someways adds a funny side to the story which is in contrast to the serious side of Ming having Breast cancer. I thought Ming was a very strong and outgoing and loved following her story!  I look forward to reading A Promise to Love and see what is next for her!

I would recommend this book i think it puts forward a serious situation that has effected nearly everyone of us! I think the book puts forward the point that Breast Cancer can be beat and i found it scary that i am in the same position as Ming was and it is scary how quickly your life can change but also heart warming and how many people are there for support. I look Forward to the next one!!

Goodreads: Love lines series -The traces of supernatural powers have always been crossing the world of human beings. Many people know about the existence of healers, mind readers, oneiromancers and wizards.

They couldn't even imagine that many years ago their lives were bound by magical spells. But now they have to find out why...

I didn't no what to expect when i first read this book. I have read many super-natural books so was hoping this book wouldn't just be a cookie cutter of one of them and i have to say i was pleasantly surprised it was for from what i expected and far exceed my expectations!

Eileen is a Normal 17 year old girl, who is haunted by a dream!  In an attempt to understand her dream she goes with her best friend Amanda to a fortune teller where she is told her life will change forever! and she is not wrong  that day Eileen is taken to Dever a university designed for gifted people... and not just any gift supernatural ones!  Not only is she taken to Dever but her best friends family are one of seven founding members! Her life is out of her control when she meets Christian Amanda's older brother, she feels and instant connection to him and by the look on his face he feels it to!

I can not praise this book enough, i literally can not find fault! it was just amazing! from the first chapter i was hooked! The writing style is clear and good and the story line is amazing. When reading this book you are constantly on your toe! the story-line is so cleverly weaved together!just when you think you have it the rug is pulled from underneath you.  you get bits of the puzzle piece and every time you think you know what is happening   something unexpected happens, you never get that one bit of the puzzle that will make it all fall in to place until never the end! I sat for ages think " oh she did it " or "he is involved" the i was completely wrong and that is what i loved most! this book has the most complex plot and hats of to  Diana i have never seen a more will well thought out and carefully laid out plot! The way everything comes together you are just sitting go wow!
Not only is the plot amazing but it has action, magic and romance!

I loved all the main characters in this book! Eileen is just brilliant! she's strong, confident and determined and made ma laugh so much! I loved Christian because part of him is so loving towards Eileen but at the same time he is so bad ass and can create fire with the flick of a hand! Amanda is so funny and her relation ship with Evan is a recipe for hilarious disaster! I Literally loved all the Characters all the Fairey family are my favorites along side Evan an darcy!

I promise if you read this book you will not be disappointed! it is amazing! and the book ends on a cliff hanger! i cant wait for the next book i need to no what happens and what will happen to Eileen and Christian!
Hey everyone! what is everyone reading today?
