My Review

 

It took me a little while to get into this book but once I did I really got into the book a lot. I liked the character of Gertie but it took me a little while to do so. I thought she did some really stupid things through out the story, without thinking about it first. I know if I found out there were vampires and I was told to stay in after dark than that is what I would do.

 

I liked the two love interest, their are Jeno who is the vampire and Hector who is a Demigod. Out of the two I want Gertie to get with Hector. I liked him from the beginning. Jeno I liked also but I feel like his just the hurtle that Gertie and Hector has to get over first. I see a lot more chemistry between those two. 

 

The ending is a cliffhanger so beware of that, and its a big cliffhanger. While I only gave the book 3 1/2 stars I did go ahead and brought the final two books. Because I have to find out what happens next and find out if I am right about who Gertie gets with in the end.

 

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review on the book and my opinions are my own.

Vampire Addiction: The Vampires of Athens, Book One
Vampire Addiction: The Vampires of Athens, Book One - Eva Pohler Gertie is a sixteen year old American girl who is being sent to spend a year with a family in Athens and go to school there. Her parents try to tell her that this will be good for her but Gertie knows they just want to get rid of her for a while. Gertie doesn’t have any friends at her school in New York well not true friends. So there really isn’t anyone or anything that she will miss. But Gertie loves spending time alone so that she can read. Gertie loves reading about vampires and Greek mythology. So you would think she would love visiting Athens but it is not Athens particularly that she doesn’t want to see. She is just afraid of the unknown and of being around people or someone she doesn’t know.

But once she arrives in Athens and meets the family that she will be staying with and gets to know them as well as a friend of theirs Gertie falls in love with all of them and doesn’t ever want to leave. Gertie actually meets two guys, Jeno and Hector while in Athens that she really likes a lot and they both like her very much as well. The family that Gertie is staying with warns her away from Jeno though.

Athens has some secrets that they try to keep hidden from most humans. In the ancient city don’t be surprise if you run into a vampire or two or maybe even a Greek god or two as well. Jeno is a part of this secret world he is a vampire. And the family that she is staying with warns her away from Jeno for this reason. They think that vampires are nothing but tramps and if you hang with them then you must be just like them.

But Gertie likes Jeno very much and doesn’t want to lose her new friend but she doesn’t want to lose her new family either so what is a girl to do? Jeno is very addicting but she loves her new family very much. Can she have both? Her new family and Jeno? Will she have to choose between the two?

Yes Vampire Addiction is very addicting. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. I think I read it in one setting. Vampire Addiction will grab you right on the first page and keep you enthralled the whole way through until the last page and beyond. I love me some vampires but throwing in Greek mythology was out of this world as I do love both. If you love vampires and Greek mythology then you are going to love this mixture of the two. Pick up your copy today and get started on this new series. I can’t wait to read the next book Vampire Affliction in The Vampires of Athens.

When Tortured Souls Collide…
 
In an unforgiving society where the hint of madness is all the damning proof men need, Dominic Ambrosi struggles to live a peaceful life, away from prying eyes, and damning innuendo.  Gifted with uncanny abilities, yet also cursed with the taint of madness, Dominic must walk a fine line.  After the horror of his past, his fractured soul is safe only in solitude…until one day, his refuge is irrevocably breached by an ethereal beauty haunted by demons of her own.  He is torn between protecting himself and his brothers from exposure and persecution and following the desires of his heart…
 
 
 
 
Excerpt
 
Italy (1800s)
 
He lay on the pit floor, limbs stiff from lack of movement. The crawl space no longer accommodated his length. With no light to guide him, he planned each movement to avoid scraping against the granite. First, he shuffled his legs, then rolled his shoulders to bring back the circulation. His skin pulled and itched like the devil. The gouges must be scabbing over, he thought.
 
He hadn’t tried to stand in a while, but he knew from the last time that he was almost tall enough to reach the pit’s lid. Just a little while longer and he’d try again. He was preserving energy and hoping to be healed enough to try jumping. She would come soon, he knew. For now, the darkness was reassuring. It calmed his mind. As long as he was alone in the dark, nothing hurt him.
 
He didn’t hear her approach. He never did. Light peeked through the pit’s lid, casting the iron bars in distorted shadows around him. He trembled and buried his eyes in the bend of his arm. Panicked, he struggled to shove his gangly, pubescent body into a crevice between two outcroppings. If he merged with the granite walls, maybe she wouldn’t be able to find him and do more damage.
 
“Come, come, now, little fiend.” Her voice cast a lure like the nectar of a carnivorous flower.
 
The boy squeezed his eyelids tight despite the arm shield. He knew who awaited him above. He squirmed further into the jagged stone. The taut scabs on his shoulders cracked open and bled. He did not bother to scream or beg. Nothing ever saved him from whatever agony she came to inflict. Instead he prayed, “Help me, God, please. Do not let her see me this time. Hide me.”
 
“Where are you, little fiend?”
 
He felt her mind rummage around for him like a blind man groping for his cane. Something new, he thought. Didn’t she know where he was? Couldn’t she see him? The pit was a scant six-foot cube and she waved the candelabra close enough so that hot wax splattered atop his forearms.
 
“Come here you little fiend!” Her voice turned shrill. “Give me back what’s mine!”
 
Her ham-fisted attempts to locate him left him halfway between fear and confusion. Why couldn’t she see him? Or touch him with her mind? By now, he should be frozen, mid-air with tangled clops of hair his only clothing. Fear ebbed into curiosity. He dared to lower his arm and peel his lids open. Even with his head still bowed, the candle-glow forced him to squint.
 
Here lay the true test, he knew. If his tormentor really couldn’t see him or sense him, she wouldn’t react to his gaze. He’d learned long ago to avert his eyes in her presence. He hadn’t glimpsed his tormentor up close in six years. The boy swallowed the upsurge of fear and snapped his head back before he lost his nerve.
 
He blinked several times to sharpen his vision. He recoiled, scraping the skin at the point of his hip. Another blink, then he relaxed. Hair. Her obsidian tresses dangled down between the iron grate, seeming to reach for him. Her face was contorted from its cloying perfection, but not in reaction…more from anger or maybe frustration he guessed. He continued to stare, shocked, not sure what to do. How long would her…blindness or whatever it was, last? She started to screech obscenities and jab around with her mind. The violent brush of her mind jerked him from his stillness. He used the jagged wall behind him to pull himself upright. Gaunt, with wobbly knees and a hobbled gait, he crept close enough to fan his hand in front of her eyes.
 
“Mama?” His voice sounded croaky from non-use.
 
No reaction.
 
Then, he caught sight of his arm, the arm that should have been fanning before him. There was only empty space. With a huff of amazement, he glanced around him. His body cast no shadow. It was as if he had faded from existence, become part of the void.

Psychological Suspense / Thriller
Date Published: September 2015
 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 
A dramatic psychological suspense/thriller about the devastating consequences of drug addiction, Broken Flowers is a powerful story about brokenness, healing, and hope.
 
Dr. Mary Crawford is a fifty-year-old psychotherapist operating a successful practice in Los Angeles. Noted for her addiction assistance and suicide prevention techniques, she leads group therapy sessions with addicts in the throes of recovery.
 
During one particular session, she is called upon for a case involving an extremely depressed fifteen-year-old girl who was the victim of a violent rape and has survived a suicide attempt. The daughter of a noted brain surgeon, the troubled teen becomes the doctor’s private patient.
 
But on a day when the young girl spirals into a suicidal depression, she is unable to reach the doctor and successfully ends her own life. When the girl’s father discovers the circumstances of his daughter’s suicide —as well as the real truth behind the doctor’s mysterious absence—he vows to destroy the doctor at all costs. Now Dr. Crawford’s life hangs in the balance, and her only hope for survival is the broken people around her.
 
EXCERPT
 
Then Valarie handed the pipe and torch to Stu, who turned off the torch and put them down. The boys were watching Valarie, and were tripping out on the hit she had taken. Valarie held her breath for as long as she could. When she could not hold back anymore, she let the smoke out in a huge exhale. Jeff’s voice was filled with admiration as he told her, “That was one hell of a blast.” Suddenly, Valarie’s eyes went wide, and her body went absolutely stiff. A horrible sound was coming from her throat, like a constricted scream as she fell backwards. Even though this was happening in front of the two men, her fall was like she was thrown backward. They could not catch her, and she hit the floor hard.
 
 Jeff dropped to one knee beside her as he was starting to panic. “My God, Stu she’s overdosed. What do we do?”
 
Stu was on the floor next to Jeff. “Don’t panic man, don’t panic.”
 
 Jeff grabbed Valarie’s shoulders and shook her. Valarie’s legs were convulsing. There was drool coming from her mouth.
 
 Stu was screaming in her ear. “Valarie, Valarie! Do you hear me; do you hear me dam it? Stu, go get some ice water. A lot of it. Hurry man!”
 
As Jeff ran out the door Stu continued to shake the girl.  Her legs stopped shaking and her eyes were starting to close.
 
“Hurry, Jeff we’re losing her.”
 
 Stu slapped Valarie sharply across the face. There was a slight reaction. Her legs started to twitch as Jeff came running into the room with two buckets of ice water.
 
 “Quick, throw a bucket on her face.” Jeffery did so. The water drenched Valarie’s hair and shoulders. Her legs started to convulse again.
 
 Jeffery was crying, “Valarie don’t die. Please don’t die.”
