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.

Don't start this unless you have immediate access to the second book...
Into the Light (The Light Series) - Aleatha Romig

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Into The Light

Aleatha Romig

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Sara Adams awakes blind, unable to remember the most basic details of her life, but her darkness seems a blessing when she discovers the terrors of The Light.

 

Stella Montgomery investigates the news on the mean streets of Detroit, where she’s noticed a disturbing trend: young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella investigates—despite warnings from her police detective boyfriend—following a twisted trail that leads her through the city’s most dangerous and forsaken precincts. There she uncovers something more sinister than she could have imagined: a shadowy organization known as The Light, led by the enigmatic Father Gabriel.

 

As Sara struggles to understand her place in the strange world she’s awakened to—an oppressive cult demanding unquestioning obedience—and her feelings for Jacob, the husband she can’t recall and whose harsh and tender attentions confuse and beguile her, Stella risks all to discover the truth. But enlightenment always comes with a price…

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

A thrilling and unputdownable ride teeming with twists and turns, especially at the end. With one I suspected and another one that blew me away.  My only complaint is overly explicit sex scenes, they were awkward to listen to with where the story was.   I could have been happier if they were just mentioned, instead.  I know this Author writes those types of stories…it just had such a dynamic plotline, it didn't need them.  Overall, this was really addicting and I immediately dived into the second book…because OMG, that was one hella cliffhanger.

not for me
Stranger: A Dark Stalker Romance - Robin Lovett

Penny is twenty one and a NICU nurse who has problems with depression as her father had died a couple of months before yet they weren’t really close.  Penny had an older brother Blake and others who are there to support her. Blake hated their father and didn’t understand why Penny cared that her father died.  Penny hungers for a distraction from her grief. Her father was the only parent she had ever known. On her lunch break Penny seen a man staring at her and seen the same man after work. Finally after a week Penny confronts the man. Logan had hated Penny’s father and wants revenge. Logan plans on blackmailing Penny - at first-  since her dad was dead now. Logan tries to tell Penny what her father did but penny walks away. But she does come back to listen. Penny doesn’t want to believe Logan but she does believe his threat to tell the media. Logan has been seeking vengeance for years. Logan plans on ruining Penny’s life like his got ruined because of her father. Logan’s world had come crashing down because of Penny’s dad. There is attraction that both Penny and Logan feel.. Logan’s father involved his sister and family to get Penny’s trust fund for the pain and suffering his sister had endured. . Penny agrees to marry Logan.   

This book really wasn’t for me. I don’t believe Penny was acting intelligently when it came to Logan a complete stranger who was stalking her. Why didn’t she involve the cops? Also why was penny griefing so much to a father she wasn’t close to? This does go into a dark area in the sex and love part. This also dragged for me at times while reading this. Some of the Questions I had concerning this story were never really answered. Also why did Penny just believe Logan who was a complete stranger without any proof of any kind? I hate cliffhangers and that is how this ended as far as I am concerned. So this book just wasn’t for me.

Takedown: An Enemies to Lovers Dark Romance
Takedown: An Enemies to Lovers Dark Roma... Takedown: An Enemies to Lovers Dark Romance - Lana Hartley I love a good romance. Takedown is more than a good romance, it's a soul stirring addiction. Owen knows how to be a jerk. His heart is heavily guarded, but his hormones are on full display. One indiscretion too many lands him in the doghouse intent on breaking free by any means necessary. Until the "Lone Wolfe" is brought down by a no nonsense, mass of contradictions. Hartley is not afraid to break the rules when it comes to sex appeal. Owen and Molly are a match made in sensual heaven.
