Manga Review: Angel Sanctuary Vol 1
Angel Sanctuary, Vol. 1 - Kaori Yuki

Killer computer games, reincarnation, fallen angels, demons, weird romance — this book has it all! Seriously, I don’t think that it can get any cooler. Sometimes, when a bunch of really cool elements are thrown together in one book it can be disastrous, but Yuki pulls it off and has created an incredibly exciting, suspenseful series. Plus, the artwork is beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever read a manga with such gorgeous drawings.

 

As for the characters, I fell in love with Setsuna immediately, and I adore all the others. It’s a very complex story with a deep historical background that I’m sure will be revealed little by little throughout the series. There are some funny moments to alleviate some of the tension (this is a very dark series). These moments aren’t laugh-out-loud funny, but they definitely put a smile on my face.

 

The only thing I had trouble with was remembering who was who, and what gender they were — Yuki seems to love the theme of too-pretty males.

 

I would recommend this for fans of dark fantasy and fallen angels. Be prepared for some serious weirdness, though!

A.J.'s Angel - L.A. Witt

This was a nice quick read about past mistakes and possible new beginnings.

Four years ago, Luke left Sebastian for someone else after having spent a great deal of their relationship cheating on him. Now he suddenly walks into Seb's tattoo shop and brings all the old hurts and feelings to the surface. Along with the physical attraction that never went away so they end up spending a night together.

This part was increadibly hot - L.A. Witt knows how to write the steamy stuff. Only I could not enjoy it. Sebastian had doubts and a little voice in the back of his head that kept pointing out that this may not be a good idea. At this point in the book we do not know why Luke is back and no words have been spoken about the past, so everything is unsettled. It makes me cringe when the characters end up in bed under such circumstances. It was like Seb just giving in to an addiction setting himself up for Luke to just use him again before tossing him out.

Of course that is not what happens and the ending was quite satisfying; they get back together (I would have expected nothing less - this is supposed to be romance, after all!) but they have to work for it. The book doesn't jump straight to sunshine and roses. Instead they take their time rebuilding the trust that was lost years earlier which in my book makes it more realistic that they can make it this time.

Book Review for Lisa VS Outlaw Mona Cox and Alexis Angel
 
 
 
 


 
Lisa Vs Outlaw
by Mona Cox
 stars
 
Reviewed by: Angels
Format: Kindle
Published: Naughty Angel Publishing
Source: ARC
Genre: Contemporary Romance,
Romance


 

Billionaires, bosses, professors, princes...whatevs, ya know? I need a real man. 

Good luck finding an outlaw in the Hamptons.

Just because someone has some whips and chains doesn't make me go all gooey.

I mean, I could just go buy that at the dollar store.

Nope. I need rugged. I need alpha. I need an outlaw.

Not some white collar criminal either. Insider stock trading does not make you an outlaw. Neither does stealing cable. Or tearing the tags off pillows.

But that's all I have to choose from.

Until I meet Diesel and get captivated by his mysterious eyes, and insanely hot body.

He's the total package - emphasis on the word "package".

Now there's just one question.

Will his bike ever be the same after I ride it?

And I'm not talking about the Harley either ;)

*** It's the cute single girl versus the Big Bad Outlaw in this sixth installment from Mona Cox. Guaranteed to be sweet, steamy, sassy, and fun. No cheating or cliffhangers. HEA? You know it, babe! ***

 
 
Diesel  and Lisa
 
Let me start off my saying that this is a a couple of new co-authors for us and I have to say that we throughly enjoyed our first story.Looking forward to reading more by them.
 
Omg this was one hot read.This story had a couple that had amazing chemistry.Their sexual interludes were off the charts so much so that those scenes were enough to even get a readers panties wet.I also liked that this couple were playful in and out of bed it added humor to the story that had me laughing out loud  more than once.I have to say that I laughed so hard at one point I had tears in my eyes.I loved the teasing and the role playing between the two.Lisa wanting and Outlaw and Diesel willing to give her one the only thing is that he doesn't need to pretend he is one.
 
I always pick a favorite character in a story and mine is going to be Lisa.I have to say that she had me cracking up some many times throughout the story that I had a constant smile on my face the whole entire story.I love it when a story hooks you from the very beginning because one of the main characters has such a witty personality.I also love the fact that Lisa was bold in and out of bed.
 
Diesel was a definite surprise he was hot as sin,witty,charming,playful and a sense of humor and was a take charge kind of guy when it came to sex. Diesel turned out to be every girls fantasy not just for Lisa.No straight lace suit here but a bad boy instead.
 
This was a light fun and enjoyable read .I loved the characters they were fun,humorous,playful  in and out of bed and we were glad to get to know them.I love a story that starts out when a couple plans to scratch and itch but end up finding so much more.
 
A recommend read to all who are looking a light read that is filled will humor and some amazing hot playful sex!
 
 
 
5 star read from us !

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-03-10 20:39
#BuffySlays20: My Favorite Buffy Episodes that You Won't Find on Most Lists on the 20th Anniversary of the Show!

 

 

 

 

Everything about Buffy is amazing, except for maybe the outfits as this Twitter account, Bad Buffy Outfits will tell you. Anyway, #BuffySlays20 and every blog/website will be listing the top ten episodes/plot points etc from the series. On most of them you will find mentions of amazing episodes, such as this one, which according to io9:

 

Hush” was nominated for a writing Emmy, even though it only has 17 minutes of dialogue. That’s all you need to know to understand how groundbreaking this season four episode was. The Gentlemen, some of the show’s creepiest villains, steal everyone’s voices so they can silently steal some hearts, and the Scoobies struggle to express their feelings to each other in the wake of losing something as integral as human communication. A bold and risky episode of TV, the episode ends up saying so much with so little.

 

and The Body, which according to News.com.au:

 

“Mummy?” All it took was one word and all of our hearts broke. Buffy finding her mother’s dead body sprawled on the couch, struck down by an all-too-human disease and not anything supernatural was one of the most wrenching Buffy moments. The sequence that followed of her wandering through the house in a daze, with no score and an almost saturated aesthetic brought home the completely uncomfortable truth of human death.

 

Of course, how can we forget the scene where Buffy kills Angelous in Season 2, which WhatCulture says is one of the iconic moments from the show! The kiss, the music playing in the background (yes, it is one of the ringtones on my phone), it was all heartbreaking!

 

All these scenes are undoubtedly amazing but the scenes that stayed with me also include those you won't find on such lists. Here are a few of them:

 

Killed By Death was one of the scariest episodes for me. It doesn't add to the overall theme of the show and the monster seems like a ripoff of on-screen villains, which it was, and yet I liked how it left me...too scared to go to sleep! 

 

Xander: You don't know how to kill this thing.

Buffy: I thought I might try violence.

Xander: Solid call.

 

 

Halloween (Second Season) is another favorite because of so many reasons. Willow was crushing on Xander and felt invisible like the ghost she dressed up as. Xander went as a soldier and the experience that he gains in this episode filters down to us in the future ones. We also get to see what Giles was like before he became so prim & proper.

 

Willow: Poor Xander. Boys are so fragile. Speaking of, how was your date last night?

Buffy: Misfire. I was late due to unscheduled slayage. Showed up looking trashed.

Willow: Was he mad?

Buffy: Actually, he was pretty unmad. Which probably had something to do with the fact that Cordelia was drooling in his cappuccino.

Willow: Oh, Buffy. Angel would never fall for her act.

Buffy: You mean that 'actually showing up, wearing a stunning outfit, embracing personal hygiene' act?

 

 

Helpless is heartbreakingly sad and damn scary! The vampire that Buffy has to fight, Gile's betrayal, the Watchers' Council politics...all of it made one helluva episode. And then there was this:

 

Angel: I saw you before you became the Slayer.

Buffy: What?

Angel: I watched you, and I saw you called. It was a bright afternoon out in front of your school. You walked down the steps... and... and I loved you.

Buffy: Why?

Angel: 'Cause I could see your heart. You held it before you for everyone to see. And I worried that it would be bruised or torn. And more than anything in my life, I wanted to keep it safe... to warm it with my own.

Buffy: That's beautiful. Or taken literally, incredibly gross.

Angel: I was just thinking that, too.

 

 
I don't remember much about Homecoming but what I do remember is that Buffy looked amazing when she dressed up for the event.
 
 
I also remember that I fell in love with Oz when he said:

Oz: As Willow goes, so goes my nation.

Band Candy is memorable for me because I can still see Giles & Joyce behaving like two teenagers and smooching in front of Buffy. Funny as heck! I realized how detail-oriented the show's creators must be when I came across this piece of trivia:

 

The Cream song that Giles and Joyce listen to is played after Joyce's funeral. Giles listens to it in the season five episode "Forever".
 
 
Pangs is another favorite because Angel comes back to visit in this episode. I loved everything about the brief return! It is also funny because of what happens to Spike and Xander.
 

Spike: A bear! You made a bear!

Buffy: I didn't mean to.

Spike: Undo it! Undo it!

 

Read other quotes here because the humor in this episode was ah-mazing!

 
As you watch the episode, you try to hate the entity responsible for the sickness and yet can't...
 
I can't leave Buffy vs. Dracula off this list for the same reason: humor! Of course, Xander would be the Count's choice for a Reinfeld.
 

Xander: Where is he? Where's the creep that turned me into a spider-eating man-bitch?

Buffy: He's gone.

Xander: Damnit. You know what? I'm sick of this crap. I'm sick of being the guy who eats insects and gets the funny syphilis. As of this moment, it's over. I'm finished being everybody's butt-monkey.

Buffy: Check. No more butt-monkey.

 

 
 
Some quips that you'll love:
 
 
Forever makes the list, as well. I loved how Dawn couldn't think ahead of the fact that she wanted her mom back. I also loved how Buffy tried to dissuade her at first and then couldn't help herself. While we never see the Joyce they raised, this was one scary episode for me!
 
 
 
 
Here are some more scary Buffy moments:
 

Chosen is both the last episode of the series and on my list. What comes to mind immediately when I think about it is the conversation between Angel & Buffy. It goes something like this but is way funnier to watch. It is also the episode where Anya, one of my most favorite characters on the show, dies trying to save Andrew.
 
 
 
IMDB lists this on the trivia page for this episode and I thought I'd share it before I ended this post:
Buffy's final line in the show is "Spike." Anya's is "Bunnies."

The Stupidest Angel ★★★☆☆
The Stupidest Angel Unabridged Cd: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror - Christopher Moore

A dimwitted and incompetent angel loses a bet and picks a town full of zany characters in which to fulfill it. Hijinks and frantic hilarity ensue.

 

I found it entertaining enough to occupy my mind while running errands. Audiobook version via Audible. Good performance by Tony Roberts.
