Review of Runes by Ednah Walters (Runes series Book 1)

I have read this book months ago, but due to lack of time, laziness and other personal things going on I didn’t write a review straight away. So I had to reread the book again. Seriously, it was like 4th or even 5th time. And I will re-read it again in few weeks as next part is to be released!! YAY!!

I have bought this book by mistake (damn, brilliant one-click on Amazon! – I ❤ to be bits LOL). Normally, I would be like – panicking and clicking cancel, please! but with this book I was like: aaahhh whatever! Besides the cover is so pretty!

runes

Small blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbour with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgement, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life

My thoughts:

I simply loved this book.

In the story we have quite few characters, but the main two are: Raine and Torin (yum). Raine is a typical seventeen year old teenager, she loves to read, have a crazy best friend and has a crush on her childhood friend, Eirik. She is determined to take their relationship further, but then hot, bad-ass guy moves next door. And everything changes from the first meeting which was just hilarious! Torin is cocky and in most situation he is a smart ass that loves to put Raine in awkward (nice awkward!) situations.

But of course dealing with teenager’s hormones is not enough to complicate Raine’s life. In addition her dad has been missing for few months, her mum because of that is acting strange and also the new guy (that makes her blood boil with anger and emotions that she has not yet felt) with his new friends are behaving a bit strange.

One jealous girls, that is convinced that Raine is trying to steal her boyfriend, changes everything with her obsession. And after that the whole life of Raine, Torin, Eirik and their friends just changes and they are thrown in the middle, where a normal human should not be part of. And now Raine is responsible of keeping her family and friends safe.

It’s a brilliant read. I never was a big fan of Norse mythology (thank you my ex), but thanks to Ednah it has changed and I just love her writing. Is easy and her books show so much emotions!

Loving War by C.M. Owens (Sterling Shores book 4)

It’s here!! Basically when brilliant C.M. Owens told the readers on Thursday that she will be releasing it earlier I was jumping in joy! I was so waiting for this part! I just love this series! I was so glad that once I finished my work on Friday the book was there. My husband after seeing me and my eyes, just sighed and said: “Take away today?” God I love him hahaha.

So after I got home around 5ish I was stalking Amazon (I was doing it at work, but sshh) to make sure I will not miss it! And around 6ish the book was there! On my kindle! Oh my, I was gone for the world!

Small blurb:

Tria Noles and Kode Sterling are a match made in hell, and no one will deny that.

They’ve hated each other for years. Kode is the jerk who doesn’t care what anyone thinks. Tria hides under a cold façade to appear strong and confident. There’s no possible way they could be anything together besides a volatile disaster.

But when their chemistry overrides their logic, they have no choice but to face their twisted attraction to each other. When that attraction refuses to fade, what started off as physical turns into something neither of them expected—or wanted.

Tria has spent most of her life living in her sister’s shadow, and it’s no secret that Kode was once one of the many who adored Rain Noles. It’s hard for her not to keep her guard up, because she doesn’t want to feel overlooked once again.

Kode starts to realize he might have been chasing the wrong Noles girl all these years. And there’s a lot he did wrong in the past when chasing Rain that could jeopardize any future he has with Tria.

There’s a thin line between love and hate, but which side do they stand on when all the secrets are aired?

My thoughts:

I freaking love this book! The beginning left me panting and I had to wait few minutes until I moved to next one! I got my coffee, cookies and was considering to have my hubby near me just in case 😉 The book is full of sexiness, badness and love!

The story tells us the relationship between Tria and Kode – enemies for almost 11 years after their meeting in a club, where both hoped to just run away from their city where no one knows them. They hated each other, but they couldn’t deny the lust they felt towards each other. After one eventful night they decided to be not friends and not enemies with benefits, but purely people with benefits. The whole relationship with no string attached was working perfectly for them, until Tria is attacked again by her ex-boyfriend and Kode feels protective. After that everything changes. Their feelings, the status and how they treat each other. Kode is no longer and ass**** towards Tria and she certainly is not an Ice Queen! After few heartbreaking scenes they decided to make it official, even though they knew what other people will think.

I love Kode’s determination when the truth about him, Rain and Dane comes to light. he fights for Tria and their love. But what I love more? Their way of dealing with the break-up hahaha that was hilarious! The book will make you laugh, cry, laugh again, cry so much more. Loved it!

And what’s more: Kade and Raya are again making an appearance ❤  God, I love that couple!

It’s a must read! If you have not read the previous part it can be hard to follow the story!

Enjoy the reading!

Blush by Anne Mercier (Rockstar, book 2)

So:  IT’S life!!! The second part of the amazing series by Anne is life! And she was even amazing and published it earlier, awesome, isn’t she?

But! The review. I have received an ARC copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.

So the book takes us back to where the first part left us: The night when Lucy woke up next to Jesse in Las Vegas, shocked, terrified and happy at same time! I still laugh when I remember the adventure to find Elvis!  I love this book! It shows the love between Jesse and Lucy, and how deep it is. There are many obstacles, pain, betrayals and even danger, but that’s what makes it a brilliant book. Groupies that follows FD everywhere, mamma Russo, grandpa that makes appearance…

I love that Anne includes everyone from Falling Down and Blush bands, so they are really a family. You can see that they respect each other and love each other. Jesse and Lucy are working out the best way of being a couple and not to give in to all those small bumps they have on the way to being a perfect couple.

I was in love with Jesse in the first part, but now Lucy can have him! I want my Xander! God he is crazy, every single time when I think about his play list I am either LMAO or snorting because of that! I still can’t believe his taste in music.

Anne has this amazing gift of making you believe that the characters are real (they are, aren’t they? LOL).

So if you still haven’t read the first part: GO AND GET IT NOW! It’s a must read and Blush is even better – especially when you like hot sex scenes :]

Blurb from the book:

BLUSH

Author: Anne Mercier

Series: Rockstar Series #2

Genre: Contemporary Adult Romance

~ SYNOPSIS ~

*WARNING* This is not a dark romance. There will be minimal angst or drama. There will be lots of laughs, frequent dropping of the F-bomb, and crazy monkey sex. 

You know how people say they woke up in Vegas married and you’re like, how the hell could that possibly happen? Who does that? Well, us apparently… and the press is having a field day.

Let’s not even get started on the topic of my mother. Then there’s my grandpa wanting to meet my new husband–that’s not scary at all. On top of that, we’re heading out on tour and I’m a nervous wreck–factor in the fact that Jesse’s newly changed marital status doesn’t seem to be an issue for the groupies. Nothing deters them. Not even the fact that I’m standing right there when they proposition him.

I can handle the press, my mom, and even my grandpa. But the women who are ruining my current mood of “happy”, well, they’ve got another thing coming. It’s time to put these women in their place because nobody messes with my happily ever after.

Lucy and Jesse continue in Blush, Rockstar #2.

“I’ve got it,” Xander shouts and bangs his fist on the table in the quaint little diner.

“What have you got? Herpes?” Meggie asks with a snort.

“Ha, ha. No, smart ass, I’ve got our title.”

“What title?” Sera asks.

“Well, you know how PR goes through and gives the tour some fancy schmancy title usually based on the album title?”

“Yeah,” Cage tells him. “I think we’ve got that handled.”

“Dude, Cage. No. I’ve got the title for our tour.”

“Yeah? What is it?”

“The BFD tour.”

Meggie snorts.

“The what?” Cage asks.

“The BFD tour. See, technically it can be the Blush-Falling Down tour but really what we’ll be calling it is the Big Fucking Deal tour.”

“Um, Xander?” I say.

“Yeah, Luce, what’s up?”

“Well, the big fucking deal thing? That can be construed as it’s really not a big fucking deal.”

He waves a hand at me. “Luce. We’re talking about us. There is no mistaking that.”

“True, true.”

“So what do you say, Cage my man? The BFD tour?” Xander asks with a grin.

“Yeah, Xander, I just don’t see that working. We can’t have profanity in the slogan for the tour.”

“Dude, no one needs to know it’s profanity.”

“Everyone knows that BFD means big fucking deal, Xander,” Sera tells him with a laugh.

Xander pouts for a second and silence fills the diner. Then he perks up. “You know what? Fuck you all. I’m going to slogan the shit out of this tour all by myself and informally call it the BFD tour. That’s going to catch on so much better than whatever bullshit your PR asshats are cooking up, Cage, and you know it. The BFD tour is going to be a big fucking deal!”

“Fuck yeah it is,” Jesse agrees with a fist bump. Everyone else fist bumps as well.

“That’s pretty freaking clever, Xan my man,” I tell him and he preens. Seriously, he preens.

Cage blows out a breath. “I guess there’s no choice then is there?”

“None,” Xander smirks.

Cage nods. “The Blush-Falling Down aka BFD tour it is.”

“This is going to be fucking awesome,” Ethan says.

“No, no dude,” Xander corrects. “It’s going to be a big fucking deal!”

“We’re going to have to listen to this until the tour’s over aren’t we?” Sera asks leaning over and whispering in my ear.

I sigh. “I’m afraid so. Xander’s on a roll and we don’t want to hurt his feelings. I hate when he gets all pouty.”

Sera nods. “Okay.”

A few minutes later Sera shouts out, “BFD!”

And Xander answers her with a fist bump and a really loud, “Yeah baby! B effing D!”

Cage wipes a hand over his face and shakes his head in disbelief. “Bitches, fuckers, skank-ass-hoes, groupie whores, and big fucking deal. You all are going to get me fined for sure, possibly even sued.”

Sera bumps his shoulder with hers. “Should make for an interesting tour, huh?”

Cage laughs. “That it will, Sunshine. That it will.”

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~ 

Anne Mercier

First and foremost I am an avid reader of romance. I read every single day. Without reading I wouldn’t be inspired to write. The same can be said about music. I started reading with Nora Roberts and Sandra Brown’s LoveSwept titles forever ago and went from reading solely traditionally published to reading nearly all indie authors. I still read my Nora and a few others. A must.

I’m just a reader who likes to writes stories sometimes. I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them.

I’m a huge fan of music, chocolate, fruit, desserts, Fall, M. Shadows, Avenged Sevenfold, and Milo Ventimiglia

Falling Down (Rockstar, Book 1) by Anne Mercier

I have read this book few weeks ago….for the first time…for now I have read it already 4 times and probably will read it few time more 😀 especially when 2nd part is almost released and 3rd one is the near future 😀 so of course you just have to re-read all of the previous parts!

Small Blurb:

I was twelve when I started crushing on him.

I was seventeen when I met him by chance and our connection was made.

Now here I am, twenty-three, and I’m one of the two actresses in the video for his band’s latest single.

Jesse Kingston is a tall, dark, and gorgeous temptation I’m finding hard to resist. It ends up not being as simple as doing a job and going home. It can’t be when he continually makes his presence known with his not-so-innocent touches and sexy words. There is no avoiding him and after spending so much time with him, I’m not sure I want to.

So, when he proposes a weekend together, knowing I should say no, I throw caution to the wind and instead I say yes. I’m going to ignore the warning signs and do what I normally wouldn’t–I’m going to give in to my desire. I’m going to indulge my fantasies and give this sexy rocker what he wants and something he won’t forget–me.

The only question is: Is one weekend going to be enough? Will our time end up changing this bad boy? Or will it end up changing me?

Disclaimer: This book contains remnants of a teenage crush. A straight-laced Hollywood actress. A sexy bad boy rockstar. Rockers who live and breathe sarcasm and sexual innuendos. Explicit wild monkey sex and dirty talk. Graphic language, frequent dropping of the F bomb, career changes, bossy parents, panty ripping, and rock n’ roll. Not for the faint of heart. Heat level: white hot. This is a stand-alone novel with a HEA. No cliffhanger

But! Let’s concentrate on the review…

Falling Down is telling us a story from POV of 2 main characters: Lucy and Jesse (yum!). The story begins innocently on an airport, where 2 have met for the first time. She was staring her career in acting and he was already famous lead singer of one of the most popular rock bands. From the beginning they felt the zing between them. The scene where Lucy saw Jesse is just amazing and their first conversation? Hilarious!

Few years later, where Lucy is famous as an actress and has one an award, they meet again. And again the whole scene is just hilarious and after that it’s just getting more and more sexy and smut. But thank God! Anne is not only concentrating on physical side of their relationship, but shows their feelings and thoughts. How scared they are, how overwhelming their feelings are and how deep they run.

I love this book. Partly because of the main characters, but the rest of the group is just AMAZING. And guys from Falling Down? So worth drooling over! You will fall in love with all of them, I guarantee!

The ending of the book is even more shocking then you would thought it to be!
