Synopsis:

Dresden is cursed. His chest houses a hive of bees that he can’t stop from stinging people with psychosis-inducing venom. His face is a shifting montage of all the people who have died because of those stings. And he has been this way for centuries―since he was eighteen and magic flowed through his homeland, corrupting its people.

He follows harbingers of death, so at least his curse only affects those about to die anyway. But when he arrives in a Midwest town marked for death, he encounters Essie, a seventeen-year-old girl who suffers from debilitating delusions and hallucinations. His bees want to sting her on sight. But Essie doesn’t see a monster when she looks at Dresden.

Essie is fascinated and delighted by his changing features. Risking his own life, he holds back his bees and spares her. What starts out as a simple act of mercy ends up unraveling Dresden’s solitary life and Essie’s tormented one. Their impossible romance might even be powerful enough to unravel a centuries-old curse.

Review:

Black Birds of the Gallows was one of my favorite books from last year!  So I couldn’t wait to read this since we were going to see the world from the beekeepers view.  Those creatures terrified me, so I took a deep breath and dove right in. I happily found myself pulled in and I finished this book in one day.  Keeper of the Bees was a mesmerizing tale filled with peril, love, heartache, redemption, evil and sacrifice.  And I loved being back in this world!

She raises one eyebrow, seemingly unimpressed. “Are you planning to kill me?”
I am a monster . A beast. Lying about it would be pointless. “Yes.”

While this book is a companion novel, it can easily be read as a standalone.  Information from the previous book was seamlessly laced throughout this story and was beautifully done.  There was no info dumps and it caught us up and gave us a complete understanding of the creatures and the curses.  If you haven’t read the previous book, the creatures in her story are so unique! They’re a breath of fresh air!

One day, I will say no to this girl and I will mean it. One day, I will walk away.
But not today. – Dresden

This time around we followed Dresden.  A beekeeper. He had a hive of bees that lived in his chest.  When a bee was released and stung someone, it made them even more dark and ultimately lead to their demise.  The bees were only supposed to pick those that had a darkness within them. Yet when his bees picked Essie, he stopped them.  Essie didn’t have an ounce of darkness in her.

“You’re safe,” I say again.
She closes her eyes. Her breath hitches. Then she does the improbable and throws herself against me, wrapping her arms around my waist.
I am paralyzed. Motionless, breathless in my first embrace in a millennium. To be touched… My eyes close as I tremble from head to toe. The pain is glorious, excruciating.

The beekeepers terrified me in Black Bird of the Gallows, but Dresden easily captured a piece of my heart.  He was one of my favorite things about this book, and as the story unfolded Dresden became everything for me.  He was tortured from having to be this monster for so many hundreds of years.  And my heart broke for him that he didn’t have a choice over what him and his bees had to do.  Until he met Essie, and he decided to spare her life. I wanted Dresden to get his happily ever after, especially since we kept getting glimpses of his humanity, heart and the boy he used to be.  

I lay a hand on his chest, very gently. Barely touching. It’s buzzy and warm with all those bees in there. He jerks at my touch and winces, but his hand brushes my thigh, just above the knee, then tentatively settles there. His gaze drops to my mouth.
“Essie.” He breathes my name. He’s close. The air between us zings, honey-scented and charged. “You are the furthest thing from a monster. You are light and grace and all the things I thought I had forgotten. It’s agony for me to be near you, yet I can’t stay away.”

Essie was unlike any character I have ever met.  She was a sweet girl who loved her family but she suffered from some type of mental illness.  Her hallucinations felt real and were filled with the stuff nightmares could be made of. She didn’t fit into any type of diagnosis and it was such a huge mystery for why she was suffering.  But from the moment she met Dresden, her whole world changed. He quieted the hallucinations and she wasn’t afraid of his ever changing face. Or that he had a hive of bees in his chest. Essie was brave, sweet, smart and had the hugest heart ever but I was never able to connect to her.  I was so sad that I wasn’t able to feel her emotions.

I have someone to live for.
Someone to fight for.
Impossibly, someone who cares about me. It makes me wonder what else is possible. – Dresden

Dresden and Essie were hope and heartbreak all swirled together.  They both had so much going against them, and friendship and normalcy was something that felt unattainable to them.  But together they started to form a tentative friendship. And the moments they were around each other they actually felt normal.  It looked like they finally had a chance for happiness, redemption and love. Yet Dresden would eventually be leaving and with Essie’s town being marked, there was no guarantee that she would survive it.

“Dresden, I don’t want you to go.” It’s all I can say. It’s all I have left.
“And I would give anything to stay,” he rasps. “But I want you to live, more.”
His eyes close, and he disintegrates into a heavy swarm of bees. It streams through the window and is swallowed by the night.

Just like her other book, I found myself enraptured when the action took place.  Since Essie’s town was marked, something catastrophic was going to happen.  And on top of that, there was a mystery within the pages. Murders kept happening and Essie found herself in the middle of it all.  It was fun watching the twists and the turns and I didn’t figure out what was truly happening till 3/4s of the way into this book. I enjoyed putting it all together!

“You… are…” I slide my fingers into her hair, letting thick strands slide between my fingers. “Worth a…thousand… deaths.”
Essie’s hand covers mine. “And you’re worth a lifetime of delusions.”

When I closed that last page I realized there is still so many stories this world can tell.  And I’m hoping and keeping my fingers crossed that there’s going to be more, especially so I can get a peak of these characters since the book ended with a hfn.  I’d love to step back into this twisted world. I’m not ready to say goodbye to the Harbingers, Beekeepers, Strawmen and even the regular people who give these characters hope, a chance at normalcy and true love.  Fingers crossed!

PS  We got to see our favorites from Black Birds of the Gallows, Reece and Angie.  I loved seeing them together, I loved seeing their happiness of being together.  It made my heart so happy!

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Superhero High by T.H. Hernandez

So confession time.  I actually signed up for two tours for this book.  That’s how much I adored this story!  So check out my 5 Star review below and enter a fabulous giveaway!  Enjoy! ♥

Superhero High
T.H. Hernandez
Purchase on: Amazon
Add to: Goodreads

Published by: Soul Mate Publishing
Publication date: July 5th 2018
Genres: Adventure, Science Fiction, Young Adult

Sixteen-year-old Annarenee Stevens is the sole member of her family without a super power. The only time she feels powerful is in the pool. With her sights set on swimming for U.C. Berkeley, she’s ready to win it all at the State championship and secure her future.

When the government unexpectedly ends the secret Genetically Enhanced Asset (GEA) program, Annarenee is uprooted from Dayton, the only home she’s ever known, and relocated to San Diego with all of the other GEA families. Queen of her public school, Annarenee is just another zero at Superhero High, a school without any sports teams.

With the end of the program, her hero older brother now needs a college education, too, meaning the only way Annarenee is getting into Berkeley is on a scholarship. Her dream is slipping through her fingers, no matter how tightly she clings to it. To make matters worse, super hot superhero, Ren Gonzalez, is paying too much attention to her. The kind of attention that has Ren’s ex-girlfriend intent on making Annarenee’s life even more miserable.

But when heroes begin disappearing, zeros and heroes will be forced to team up in order to solve the mystery. If they don’t kill each other first.

Review:

Superhero High was mesmerizing, beyond addicting and a ton of fun.  I got completely wrapped up in the characters lives and lost in the pages.  Bullying, first love, friendships, finding yourself and mystery was splashed across the pages.  And that made this book emotional, sigh worthy, and I fell in love with so many of the characters.   I closed that last page feeling happy and I’m excited for future books set in this world *fingers crossed*!

I fall back onto my bed and close my eyes, letting the past few hours replay in my head, a tear slipping out and running down my cheek. This is the worst nightmare ever, and I’m never, ever waking up from it.

Annarenee Stevens’ life may have seemed ordinary, but it was anything but that.  She was the only one in her family without superpowers, but none of her friends or even boyfriend at her public high school truly knew about her family.  With her sights set on a swimming scholarship to UC Berkeley, this was going to be her best year yet!  But her whole life got turned upside down when the government quit funding the Genetically Enhanced Asset (GEA) program.  All GEA families, hers included, were rounded up and sent to live in a community in San Diego. Leaving her whole life in Ohio behind, she found herself at a high school with no sports team and surrounded by Superheroes.  And there were plenty who thought a zero like her, didn’t belong among them.

“I’m talking to you, zero.”
Whirling around, my fists clenched at my sides, I stare him down. “My name is Annarenee, asshole. Not zero, not loser, or any of the other pet names you think are so charming. If you can’t call me by my name . . . you know what? Never mind. Just don’t talk to me. Ever.”
His nostrils flare as he takes deep, angry breaths. “I’ll call you whatever I want, and you’ll answer.”

I loved seeing the world through Annarenee’s eyes and connected with her right from the beginning.  She was was not only smart, but she had no problem speaking her mind. With her dreams of college sailing out the window and going to a new school where some looked down and bullied her, my heart definitely hurt for her.  But she stood up for herself and her zero friends, and I love that she didn’t let others push her around.  She came across as brave and someone I would respect.  

His gaze lifts to mine, and the vulnerability in his eyes steals my breath. I’ve never seen this side of him. Not really. He’s been unsure, or nervous, but not this. Ren searches my face for something, and I’m pretty sure all he’s going to see is pure fear. Because if I kiss this boy, nothing between us will be the same.

In San Diego, Annarenee caught the eye of a Superhero, Ren Gonzalez.  Oh you guys, I loved Ren. He gave me butterflies and I loved learning all of the different sides to him.  Ren made me laugh, he made me feel cautious and he made me fall head over heels in love with him.  The words he chose and the way he treated others just added to the huge list of reasons why I fell so hard for him.  So when Ren flirted with Annarenee he easily made my heart race. But his jealous superhero ex seemed to always be hanging in the background and I was personally scared of her powers.

I’m in serious danger of falling hard for that boy, and I’m shocked it doesn’t scare me.

In the midst of everyone trying to adjust to living in San Diego, some of the teen superheroes started disappearing.  I was grasping at the tiniest clues, like Annarenee, trying to figure out what was going on.  And while I felt as clueless as her, I loved how all of this was a trigger for something huge.  The zeroes and heroes would have to put aside their differences and work as one if they wanted to find those that they loved.  Awww I loved this story and how it played out!

His mouth is on mine in seconds, as if he’d been holding his breath and he desperately needed to inhale.

I absolutely adored Superhero High.  At the base of this story was a romance, but it was also about finding yourself, navigating your teen years and so much more.  This book ended in a wonderful spot with a HFN feel, yet there are so many ways this story can continue.  And I for one can’t wait!

Isaac from In Harmony by Emma Scott
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Here is a boy who despite all of his troubled upbringing goes out of his way to care for others, from the neighbor boy with a similarly broken home, to his mentor/father figure and the heroine of the story, Willow. Isaac is tough when he needs to be, but he is also incredibly kind and loving.

Aiden from The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Okay, people, OKAY. Thus began my love affair of EVERYTHING MARIANA ZAPATA. Aiden is the silent killer. He’s the heart attack you didn’t see coming. My brain couldn’t compute the feels that erupted from this subtle powerhouse who’s more loyal and amazing than any football player I’ve known (okay, shut up). BUT MY HEART. BRAIN=DEAD. HEART=SHREDS. SOUL=Forever Aiden’s.

“Home is where you are. I would go anywhere for you if you wanted me there.”

 

 

Billy from Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1) by Kendare Blake
* Amazon * Goodreads *

Well would you looky here, frans. The kind, adorable, LOYAL Billy-the boy who was to court all the ladies…but falls for the rugged (and amazing-I-am-obsessed-with-her) Arsinoe. I can’t explain when and why this boy stole my heart-perhaps it was the time spent together, or maybe it was when he saw all that was wrong with the trials  and the people or whatever. But likely…it was that bow. I was a goner-hook, line, and sinker.

Until Billy comes ashore.
Her heart warms. He does not seem weak or injured.

Billy stands below the cliffs and looks up at her. He bows, deep and slow, and the crowd murmurs. Arsinoe holds her breath.

He bows only to her.

 

 

Thomas Cresswell from Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper #1) by Kerri Maniscalco
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Awww my smart, weird, and, again, loyal boy. He is always at Audrey Rose’s side. Always up for the next adventure-and their banter. I can’t. It’s just so cute. And his devotion to her….it’s unparalleled. I’m obsessed and that’s all there is to it.

Without lifting his head from his own journal, he said, “Not having any luck figuring me out, then? Don’t worry, you’ll get better with practice. And, yes”—he grinned wickedly, eyes fixed on his paper—“ you’ll still fancy me tomorrow no matter how much you wish otherwise. I’m unpredictable, and you adore it. Just as I cannot wrap my massive brain around the equation of you and yet adore it.”

Mason from Sugar and Spice (Glitter and Sparkle #3) by Shari L. Tapscott
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Mason was thoughtful, a good listener and such a good friend to Harper.  He could be so sweet and down to earth and exactly what she needed with her cynical ways.  And his sexiness easily possessed my heart! 

“We’ll have to be careful not to appear overly friendly in public,” he whispers, his words tickling my ear.
My mouth goes dry, and I swallow before I answer. “Shouldn’t be a problem. I don’t even know you. You certainly don’t know me.”
“Oh, but I plan to.”

 

Nicholas Wakefield from The Importance of Being Scandalous (A Tale of Two Sisters #1) by Kimberly Bell
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Nicholas was beyond intoxicating and spellbinding.  His words, mannerisms and slight touches had my heart racing.  I loved how he was there for Amelia and that they confided in one another.  Their friendship and trust was so beautiful.  But underneath that friendship simmered tension, since Nicholas had been in love with Amelia for forever.  

His words died off as she leaned in close, lips a hair’s breadth from his. The deep rise and fall of his chest as he breathed in drew her hand up in fascination. She played her fingers along the edges of his cravat. “I’m still interested. Are you certain?”
His hand brushed her rib cage. His thumb whispered against the underside of her breast. “It is not in my power to deny you.”

 

 

Ash from Ninja Girl by Cookie O’Gorman
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Ash was seductive while also being hilarious without even trying. And I quickly got caught up in his spell! his attempts at even just talking with Snow had me cracking up while also sighing at the same time and he is someone you must meet!

“You know, you’re kind of arrogant,” I said.
“And you’re kind of beautiful.” Ash smiled and nodded to the bar while I tried to recover. Who said things like that?

 


Liam from The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds #1) by Alexandra Bracken
* Amazon * Goodreads *

LIAM IS THE KINDEST BBF OF ALL TIME.  I mean seriously guys he spends the whole series doing nothing but loving Ruby, Chubs, and Zu. Even after his memory of Ruby is taken away, he unconsciously tries to find her.  Ugh that sweet Southern boy. I can’t wait until this movie comes out and I swear they better have done his character justice!!

“Cause, frankly, the way I see it, you and me? Inevitable.”

 

 

Arin from The Winner’s Curse (The Winner’s Trilogy #1) by Marie Rutkoski
* Amazon * Goodreads *

We don’t really see this kindness until after the initial rebellion starts but afterwards he is nothing but sweet to Kestrel.  He’s there for her when her own father isn’t and would have given EVERYTHING up for her.

The Star-Crossed Ladies

 

Connor Cobalt from Kiss the Sky (Calloway Sisters #1) by Krista Ritchie & Becca Ritchie
* Amazon * Goodreads *

Connor Cobalt is hands down the fiercest BBFs that I have ever read about.  He went from believing that is was impossible to love anyone to loving his wife, his children, and Lo. He went so far as to give scandalous pictures to the paparazzi to take the spotlight off of his best friend, sister-in-law, and their son.  You can’t really get fiercer than that.

 
 

Han from The Demon King (Seven Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

From gang member, to student, to wizard, Han was basically destined to be one of the fiercest characters in the Seven Realms.  He also loved fiercely. “I want to breathe you in for the rest of my life.” Watching his relationship with Raissa progress from the first time they met to the last page of Crimson Crown was a beautiful roller coaster of a thing.

 
 

Elian from To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
* Amazon * Goodreads *

Elian is a reluctant prince but a confident and skilled sea siren hunter. He is incredibly loyal to his amazing crew, but can turn on his princely charm when he needs to. And no matter who he is fighting (and it’s a lot of people and creatures!), you always feel like he’s got a great chance of winning the fight.

 
 

fiercest_chelsea

Elian from To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

By far one of the strongest bbfs this year, Elian is my free-spirited, determined pirate prince. He would do anything to save a damsel in distress…until that damsel is Lira, the Prince Killer. They hate each other at first, but then, as they realize their souls are more alike than they ever imagined, their love becomes so palpable it leaps off the page—-and rips your soul apart when he realizes just who he has fallen for. Can I re-read this yet??!!

“Gods.” Kye recoils as I slash open Lira’s dress. “Is she going to live?” 
“Do you care?” I snap back. It isn’t his fault, but yelling at Kye feels a little like yelling at myself, and I need to be yelled at right now. Because this is on me. If Lira dies, then it’s on me. 
I can’t believe you came back for me.
But I left her first.

 

Nikolai from Amour Amour (Aerial Ethereal #1) by Krista Ritchie & Becca Ritchie
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Talented, true, and just the most loyal guy-he does everything in his power to train Thora so she doesn’t have to go home with her tail between her legs…and falls in love with her in the process. This book, guys, it’s so underrated yet it deserves so much more. The passion, the love…it’s all plain as day on the page-And I need more of it.

“I’m in love with you,” I whisper. 
He tries to smile but his eyes flood instead. “Don’t love me more than your dreams, myshka. Because I love you too much to let you give them up for me.”

 

Ivan from From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Ivan is a Mariana guy…therefore he is everything. The hate-to-love relationship with Jasmine was just ohhh soooo satisfying-and his determination both on and off the ice skating rink stole my breath away. Every little thing he did, I wanted to live in the moment forever. As with all Mariana Zapata books, I certainly tried to. But, alas, it’s never enough.

 

“Because I’m okay with you having ten other people be your favorite. But you’re always going to be my favorite person,” he finished. “Always. No matter what.”

Prince Lucien from Bring Me Their Hearts (Bring Me Their Hearts #1) by Sara Wolf
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Prince Lucien was such a complex man who easily stole my heart.  And when we learned what he secretly does and how brave he truly was, I was a goner.  He was caring, thoughtful, passionate and fierce!  He was still haughty, he is a Prince after all, but you could see all of his emotions he kept hidden swirling under the surface. Zara brought it all out of him and I loved every single moment of their slow burn romance!

“I will never consider meeting you a mistake,” Lucien says, his midnight eyes flashing.

 

 

Joe Malone from About That Kiss (Heartbreaker Bay #5) by Jill Shalvis
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Joe worked for a security company and ended up on a case for Kylie.  I loved how he wanted to keep her safe and how protective he was.  He was loyal, brave and his trust in others was absolutely beautiful.  Together their moments were explosive and fireworks were definitely guaranteed!

She was an irresistible dichotomy of sweet charm and heart-stopping sexy, and she threw him off guard with every look, be it a smile or a glare. In fact, he kinda liked when she gave him dirty looks, which meant he was seriously losing his shit. And he never lost his shit.
Never.
Yeah. He was royally screwed and the thing was even knowing that, he didn’t want to walk away because he enjoyed her so much. How crazy was that?

 

 

Rylen Fite from Unknown (Unknown #1) by Wendy Higgins
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

We actually got to witness the demise of the world. And I had no clue the depths my heart would ache watching this tale unfold.  But thankfully we have Rylen to mend our hearts.  He was protective, loyal, passionate, seductive and always in control.  He will always be one of my favorite book boyfriends ever! 

 

A lump filled my throat as Rylen pulled me aside and pressed his forehead to mine. We didn’t kiss. No hugs either. We just stood there, foreheads touching, eyes closed, breathing each other in, letting the urgency of our hope rise up and twirl between us, spinning until it was a powerful cyclone of unspoken words, holding us together.
Be safe.
Stay alert.
I love you more than life.
Don’t you dare die. – Amber & Rylen

Synopsis:

JARED
If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...
The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.
Her anger is...arousing.
Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,
gets me...well, you know.
If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.
I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it.
I'm sure what you meant to say is "Coming right up.”
They say even rich men don't always get what they want,
but those men don't know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.
Take Banner. She assumes she's winning, but this game?
She doesn't even know how to play.

BANNER
If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.
One night. One epic fail. One dollar...and I'm out.
I've moved on.
I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.
Anything they can do, I have done better.
They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.
And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?
Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.
I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.
Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real.
But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.
