Seven Sins had nothing for me anymore.
That is until she walked in.
Eliana doesn’t remember me, she wouldn’t.
Taken from me years ago, I had no choice but to say goodbye.
 
It’s time to right the wrongs of the past.
But there are secrets woven into our lives that will soon spill over.
 
I’d always envied my brother. We were always at war.
But now it’s time to ask for his help.
To put our differences aside and save the girl I love.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying this is a brand new author for us and we really enjoyed our first book by them.I am looking forward to going back and starting this series from the very beginning and see where it leads us.
 
OMG! I really didn't know what to say about this story other than it was so Twisty,Dark,Erotic-very dark,gritty,made you edgy,and uncomfortable at times but, It was all so descendant that you were hooked and engrossed from the very first pages.
 
The plot was full of a ton of surprises and also had a love triangle of sorts as two brothers loved the same women but, only one of those held her heart.The plot thickens as something sinister threatens them all and their lives as they know it will change forever.
 
Asher-OMG! He was a dark predator,dangerous,dominate,possessive,highly sexual,sexy is sin,and protective.Asher's dark aura even scared the crap out off me. LOL
 
Eliana-I found her to be broken and consumed by revenge,lethal as well as deadly,aloof and a little bit of a loner and highly crafted at what she was trained to be and that was a killer.
 
Overall the story had a great cast of character's both good and the bad.The story was engrossing suspenseful and had some major secrets come to light but,was also about a second chance at love with the one you have loved most of your life.With a road well traveled that was dark and very dangerous they might finally get their happily ever afters.
 
We loved it!Recommended to read to all those that love dark and twisted gritty romance full of heat.
 
P.S.We love reading stories love this every now and then something out of our comfort zone.We liked seeing character's who have been living in the dark for so long and come into the light and finally start living again.

Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
Envy of Angels - Matt Wallace
This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was just okay for me. I have heard great things about this series so this book has been on my to be read list for some time. I bought a copy of the book but had not had the opportunity to sit down and read it just yet so when I saw that the audiobook was available through my library, I decided to go that route. It is a rather short piece so I was able to finish it in just a couple of days. I didn't fall in love with this book but did enjoy some aspects of the story.

This book was weird. I like weird books so that shouldn't have been any kind of problem but this book is really weird. Not normal weird but undead clowns worshipping a giant chicken kind of weird. This book had a certain crazy that went along with the weird and I think it was just a bit much for me at times. It was definitely unique and unlike anything else that I have ever read. 

Darren and Lena get the chance to work for a catering company called Sin du Jour. Sin du Jour is not your normal group of caterers. They have a very original menu and clientele that sometimes come to them with special requests. Serving the wrong kind of meal could have devastating consequences for the employees of Sin du Jour. I thought that the way that the staff of Sin du Jour interacted with each other felt rather authentic.

The narrator was just okay for me as well. I believe that this is the first time that I have had the chance to listen to Corey Gagne's narration. I have to admit that I didn't care for some of the voices that he used especially for the female characters. It was difficult to determine who was talking at times. I thought that he did have a pleasant voice that brought excitement to some of the scenes but I was never quite able to completely move past my dislike for some of the voices used. I would probably be willing to give this narrator another try in the future with a different kind of story.

I think that some readers may enjoy this story a bit more than I did. It was a really interesting concept with some really exciting scenes. The book did cause me to swear off all chicken nuggets at least for a little while. I am probably not going to continue with this series but I am glad that I decided to give this story a listen.

Initial Thoughts
This was weird. Not normal weird but undead clowns worshiping a giant chicken kind of weird. It was definitely unlike anything else that I have read before. The narrator was okay. I didn't care for some of the voices that he used especially for the female characters.

Oh ffs. DNF at 230 pages.

 

I. Am. Done.

 

I loved the first 2 books in this series but this one makes my eyes want to bleed. Henry is like a mindless ping pong ball that only thinks with his little ping pong dick. Penelope is so evil it is hard to believe she is a real character. Carolina's selfishness knows no bounds. She loved Will enough to lose her job and plan to run away, but when she finds out he's dead, oh well. "I'm rich now. Fuck you." No, fuck you, Lina, you stuck up maid who seems to have forgotten you are living a lie. My God, I only read these for Elizabeth and Will. And Will died which crushed my soul. WHY DO THE GOOD ONES GET KILLED OFF?! So now this book series is just Penelope and Diana playing tennis with Henry while Elizabeth doesn't know she's pregnant with Will's baby and Lina is just a sneeze away from total, justified social ruin. Fml. I'm going to read something that doesn't make me want to stab myself in the ear with a pencil.

"...revealing forearms that were almost ungentlemanly in their strength..."

 

How big is too big in the arm department?

Okay, I have no idea what is wrong with my "currently reading" side bar, but it isn't showing all of my books. So I'm just winging it. I'm on page 100. 

 

I think Liz is prego. And I want Penelope to die in horrible fire.
