A Worthy Ending
Feversong: A Fever Novel - Karen Marie Moning

I can breath again, I was holding my breath for those last few chapters. The final days with these beloved characters was intense and very satisfying. I rolled through the whole emotional scale on this last ride, happy, sad, nervous, ugly crying, fear, stressed, doubt, anger and joy. I also suffered from insomnia, this book invaded my dreams, waking me several times a night with a flash on energy as my mind mulled over the last few pages. The book ended in a wonderful way fitting for these fabulous characters.
I am very happy that I found this author and series, both are in my top 5. Barrons my fictional book boyfriend, will forever be etched into my being, he was an incredible character. He might be my favorite but I loved them all, over the years even in the difficult stages.
Thank you KMM for all your genius and time.

4.5 stars - 'Deep' by Kylie Scott
Deep (Stage Dive Series Book 4) - Kylie Scott

Deep is the fourth and final book in Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series and she definitely ended the series with a bang with Ben's story. Ben is the bass player of Stage Dive, and he's known as the type that doesn't do relationships and will never really settle down. Unfortunately, his world is about to change with a one night stand.

Lizzy has been infatuated with the sexy, tall, bearded bass player since the moment she met the band, but Ben only wants to be friends. He has reasons on why he wants to be just friends and that reason is Mal. (Oh boy Mal definitely doesn't make it easy for Ben in this story) Lizzy tries everything to gain his attention, but he's been hardheaded and stubborn, until a trip to Las Vegas changes everything.

Lizzy and Ben's world is going to turn a 360 with one single test that could bring them together or separate them further. It's definitely up to them to decide which one it will. Or in the case of reading Deep, you'll realize it's actually up to the one sexy tattooed bass player to decide their future. (Ben you definitely were a jerk at times with deciding your future)

Ben is the hard-headed stubborn rockstar of Stage Dive. The man can't make decisions on what he wants really, but he definitely knows how to piss off Lizzy constantly. I felt for Lizzy in the story because here it is, she just wants his attention and to show him how much she cares about him. Unfortunately, Ben is too scared to do anything. I could've throttled the man at times for Lizzy. Lizzy had a huge support system with the other Stage Dive members and I truly enjoyed having all the rest of Stage Dive and their girls in Deep. I definitely enjoyed reading more of Mal. (He will always be a favorite of mine). He's crazy humor and downright straightforward personality makes him irresistible and SEXY! Anne is one lucy woman!

Kylie writes the story by starting off in present time and then going back to when Ben and Lizzy hooked up. This definitely made the story flow very well and I definitely wanted to find out how these two finally hooked up. Poor Lizzy though throughout the story had to deal with so much.

She even knew how to handle Ben's obnoxious crazy sister. (You'll definitely want to hurt her when she is comes forward in the story.)

 

In the end, Deep was an amazing ending to a very addicting series that I definitely plan on reading again. I'm sad that Stage Dive has come to an end, but I know Kylie is writing another series I know I will enjoy too. She's one author I automatically always buy her books because I know she'll write some addicting characters that I will adore, and unforgettable stories that will require being read again and again.

I give this book 4.5 stars and highly recommend it to readers that enjoy rock star romance books. Just be warned Mal is MINE!  Yup…he won me over since the beginning and he'll always be unforgettable. =)

The Last Word (Spellman Files, document #6)
The Last Word - Lisa Lutz

I have both loved and not loved every book in this series, including this one.

 

I loved the humour and the characters and the snark.  The only books on earth where I looked forward to footnotes.  The writing is the type that appeals to me the most: snarky and clever.  I love how there are many mysteries in the plot that each start off small and sometimes insignificant and build as the story progresses until they become something of a juggernaut, and are then slowly solved and dismantled, one at a time.  The entire Princess Banana story line (including her parents' reaction to it) was hysterical.

 

I did not love the level of machiavellian manipulation between family members.  Nor did I love that the author lets bad things happen to good people, even though I freely admit the story wouldn't have been nearly as good any other way.  The story line with Henry Stone gutted me.  Gutted. me.

 

The ending leads me to believe this is the last Spellman novel - or at least the last Isabel Spellman novel.  It also is wide open enough that I can see a new spin-off series with Rae as the MC as a possibility in the future.

 

I'd recommend all 6 of these books to anyone who loves - I mean really loves - snark.  I'm still really gutted about Henry though...

Reading progress update: I've read 20%.
The Forever Song - Julie Kagawa

Allison is a bit of a whinny vampire. I don't like her very much right now. I really hope she snaps out of her mood.

4.5 moons - "Call of the Siren" by Rosalie Lario
Call of the Siren - Rosalie Lario

Call of the Siren is the fourth and final book to the Demons of Infernum by Rosalie Lario and it no doubt went out with a bang.  Rosalie concludes this series with a epic fight scene and Dagan finally getting his happily ever after.  I’m going to admit a head of time, I didn’t read in order in these series, but Rosalie does an amazing job on making it easy to follow on what happened in previous books with the other characters in the story.  At least that is how I felt while reading this book, and look forward to going back to the other books I didn’t get a chance to read before reading this one.

I hate knowing this is the last book to an amazing series because this world that Rosalie created was intriguing and like no other world I read before.  In Call of the Siren, Dagan falls in love with Ronin’s adopted-sister, Lina.  He would give up his player ways to be with her, but it’s kind of hard when Ronin (his brother) doesn’t want him with Lina.  In the mince of fighting with his brother about Lina, the demons are faced with deportation back to the Infernum due to being accused of breaking out their father (which is ludicrous since they despised their father).  Someone broke out their father and they have no idea why, but things are about to surface on what truly is happening.  Dagan and his brothers play a major role of what is going to happen and in the end they will fight their final battle together.

Lina is the main female character in the story that won our half-siren, half-demon’s heart and she definitely has had a hard life.  The poor woman/angel never felt wanted, so she took to being a mercenary to help take down the evil-Otherworlders that wreak havoc everywhere.  Every time Lina’s secrets came forward in Call of the Siren and why she was the way she was, I felt very sympathetic towards her.  She had a huge trauma that continuously affected her and made her blame herself for what happened.  I wanted to hug her several times in the book.  I can definitely say, I adored her character in this book because she was able to finally get some closure, and she became stronger for what she had to go through in Call of the Siren.

Dagan was a very sexy half-siren, half-demon that won me over because he was changing his ways due to Lina.  He had his hands full though with Ronin (who I wanted to smack around).  Ronin was clueless on what was really going on, and it started taking a toll on the love of his life.  Ronin…focus on your own love and leave Dagan alone!  Dagan deserved happiness and I’m glad he finally received his HEA.  Lina didn’t make it easy for him at first, which Dagan definitely need that challenge a bit.

Overall, Call of the Siren was a epic conclusion to this series and I’m sad to know that it has officially ended.  I loved how Rosalie had everything come together because these brothers deserved some vacation time after what they went through with their leading ladies.  =)

Be prepared for zombies in the story, fae trying to take over, and lots of fighting between the bad guys and the sexy demons we adore.

I give this book 4.5 moons and highly recommend this book and the series to paranormal romance readers out there.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
