ARC REVIEW Never Let Me Fall by Abbie Roads
Race the Darkness (Fatal Dreams) - Abbie Roads
Hunt the Dawn - Abbie Roads

 

 

 

Fatal Dreams #3, Each of the Fatal Dreams books can be read as a standalone. While this one didn't quite have the same umph as Roads last three books it was still a fantastic read. Very deep in the internal conflict of recognizing who they are together and what they are becoming. A dark fairy tale/folklore at the root of it all tells a tale of never ending love and the power it holds and the reincarnated souls that carry on that power.

Thomas Brown lost the ability to see color when his step father tried to kick his face in, the resulting damage caused serious problems to the optic nerve. He also has the ability to see a person's "death shadow" which tells him basically how evil a person really is and after a person dies it can show him the person's life up until their death. Helena Greyse was tried and convicted for a murder she never committed and spent the last ten years fighting for her life. Helen survived many attacks while in prison some that should have killed her, even her last night there she barely made it out with her life. When they meet for the first time, the day Helen was released, they both knew their lives have unequivocally changed. Helen has brought color to Thomas' life and for the first time in ten years Helen felt safe with Thomas. Thomas and Helen's lives are tied together in so many ways but there is still one giant obstacle for them to overcome. Can their love overcome this common enemy who has been a source of pain for them both?   

Overall, this book was outstanding it's an emotional read, it's dark, it's paranormal, it's suspenseful, it's heavy on the internal conflict without the characters sounding whiny and useless. They are each other's strength, they are the balm for their souls it's a beautiful insta-love romance. The external conflict wasn't as traumatizing for me as the other two, it was still bad but it almost feels like it was glossed over and leaves you with just assuming how bad the events were; but it was still good and I loved the conclusion.

It’s Bridget Jones with vampires in this fresh and funny paranormal romance from debut author Juliet Lyons

When Silver Harris kisses sexy Irish vampire Logan Byrne on New Year's Eve, she knows other humans just won't suffice. Convinced she'll never see him again, she joins the uber-popular vampire dating site, V-Date.com.

What Silver doesn't know is that the site is more dangerous than she could ever imagined, and soon she's in over her head. When Logan returns, sparks fly and attraction sizzles, but they'll have to escape some very real demons if they have any chance of lasting forever.

 

 

 

 

Dating The Undead was a little less what I expected but had some things I totally wasn't expecting yet still managed to keep my attention despite some areas where the story hit a couple snags and lingered too long in some places I felt could have done without the added plot and useless character interactions.

That being said, I did like that the characters mostly carried the story - I do like heavy character plot than actual story plot sometimes since I tend to have a habit of getting deeply invested in the who is who, how, and why they are the way they are, their backgrounds and histories and all the little tid bits that tend to get left in the wind in a lot of books.

Dating the Undead includes a lot of past history but sadly not really in the way I was hoping. As a whole Dating the Undead didn't quite feel totally fleshed out or expanded in areas I felt could have used a little extra attention and a little long in areas I felt could have been done without all together however I still liked our h/h, I liked their journey together even with the whole little too heavy too obsessed too soon. I let that go so I could sit back and enjoy the ride without paying much attention to the road signs on the trip.

Dating the Undead was still very much worth the read as long as I didn't look too deep and the humor was very much liked. Also the ending hook grabbed me enough that I do plan on picking up the next book in this series.

 

 

 

Until next time book lovers...

Undiscovered (Amoveo Rising #1) by Sara Humphreys
Undiscovered - Sara Humphreys

 

 

 

He's the man of her dreams
A long time ago, Zander Lorens was cursed to walk the earth stripped of his Dragon Clan powers. Every night, trapped in a recurring nightmare, Zander relives his darkest moment. He can hardly believe it when the dream changes and a beautiful young woman appears. Zander believes she's the key to ending his torment. Finding her in the real world is one thing, but how will he convince her of who-and what-she really is?

She's the end to his nightmare
Rena McHale uses her unique sensitivity as a private investigator, touting herself as a "human divining rod" and finder of the lost. By day she struggles with sensory overload, and by night her sleep is haunted by a fiery dragon shifter. Nothing in her life makes sense, until the man from her dreams shows up at her door with a proposition...

 

 

 

Cursed brothers redemption begins. First runner up: Zander.

It took awhile for any of the cast members to grow on me and its hard to explain but mostly the automatic you got no choice condition irked me more than once through the book. Both in Zanders case and in Rena's.

Zander knows what its like to have something put upon him without his say so, so when he constantly uses the same tactics on Rena it had a tendency to get on my nerves because really - hypocrite.

Despite that I did like Zander and Rena together as a couple and I did like the world building that Humphreys has created in this book.

I hit a snag at one point though because I thought this was the first book to the A- Rising series - which it is but it felt as if it were attached to another series I hadn't read yet. I'm not sure where it ties in however the author does not leave you lacking in information as its well detailed in what's going on. So regardless of whether you've read her previous books shouldn't matter. Although I would like to note I do plan on catching up on them because I have a feeling it matters in some form.

I'd like to note that dragon- shifters are hard to write on paper and bring to life so the fact that Humphreys really goes for it gains some level of respect in my book. I'd also like to note that she handles it well enough even though we don't get the whole dragon thing as much as I'd like I am keeping in mind this is the intro so I'm being patient.

I did appreciate Zander as a character because he has a lot of family devotion loyalty going on and that's endearing so I'm totally clinging to that. Plus he's sexy so points for him anyway.

Undiscovered is a fascinating read that I fully enjoyed. I highly recommend.

Heat
Brave the Heat - Sara Humphreys

Gavin has not been pining for Jordan this whole time.  Or has he?  When she returns to their hometown, he finds he has never stopped loving her.

 

Jordan has had so much happen to her in life.  Now, she must protect her children from harm.  Going home is all she knows to do.  Only home is where a fire bug is getting more excited.

 

Great start to the McGuire Brothers series.  There is a ton going on, great humor, and a sincere love story woven through it all.  I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Under Her Skin (Blank Canvas #1) by Adriana Anders

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A darkly possessive relationship has left Uma alone and on the run.

 

Beneath her drab clothing, she hides a terrible secret—proof of her abuse, tattooed onto her skin in a lurid reminder of everything she’s survived.

 

Caught between a brutal past and an uncertain future, Uma’s reluctant to bare herself to anyone…

much less a rough ex-con whose rage drives him in ways she will never understand.

 

But beneath his frightening exterior, Ivan is gentle. Warm. Compassionate.

 

And just as determined to heal Uma’s broken heart as he is to destroy the monster who left his mark scrawled across the delicate tapestry of her skin.

 

 

 



 

For such an emotionally cold and characteristically harsh book, Under her Skin was an intensely emotional read for me.

The world is not a kind place as Uma discovers in this book so do readers who understand what its like to be on the receiving end of relationships like the ones she's suffered through. 

Under her Skin is a great read, and although I have few words to express why I liked it so much that will remain a personal thing for me.
