Synopsis:

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou, working for the infamous de Vincent family, the massively wealthy brothers who are haunted by a dark reputation and whispers of misdeeds. Hired to care for their troubled sister, Julia can't afford any distractions, but the menacing presence in the mansion and the ever-present temptation of the handsome Lucian de Vincent isn't something anyone can ignore.

Julia knows better than to get wrapped up in Lucian. He’s from a world she can’t relate to. Plus, he’s her employer. But his wicked touch and sensual promises are too much deny. What starts with a kiss ends with so much more.

Lucian is the youngest brother—the wildest, most unpredictable one. He’s the unrepentant bachelor of the family, known for his escapades in and out of the bedroom, and he wants Julia. There’s something about her that makes Lucian want to lay himself bare, but some secrets are better left buried, right along with a past that could not only bring down a dynasty but destroy Julia in the process.

Review:

Moonlight Sins slowly ensnared me in its web of games.  It was sexy, twisted, suspenseful, charismatic and I devoured this book in one day.  It refused to be put down.  Mystery filled the pages and I loved that the characters all felt so much larger than life!  So when I closed that last page I was thankful that there would be two more books about the other brothers.  There was no way I was ready to say goodbye to all of these characters that captured my heart.

His breath now danced over her ear. “I don’t know why you’re resisting this. I know you want me just as badly as I want you.”
She did. Oh God, she did.
Her eyes closed.
It was official.
Julia was already in over her head when it came to Lucian de Vincent and she wasn’t coming up for air anytime soon.

Right from the start I liked Julia Hughes.  She was fiery, smart and she didn’t have any problems standing up for herself.  She was also kind hearted and such an honest person.  When we stepped into her life, she was in the process of leaving everything behind.  Her job, home and friends, all for a fresh start. It was definitely needed since Julia had some shadows in her closet.  Yet when she arrived at her new job, it was unlike anything she ever could have imagined.

Her lips parted as her body flashed hot, really hot, and then cold. “Is there literally anything you can’t make sound sexual?”
“No. It’s like a superpower of mine.”
Her eyes narrowed.
Lucian smiled.

Julia discovered that she’d be caring for Maddie de Vincent.  The de Vincent’s are notorious and one of the wealthiest families in the US.  And each of Maddie’s three brothers had a dark reputation. Julia found herself stepping into a world filled with mystery, luxury, curses and so much more.  Thankfully we alternated between Julia and Maddie’s twin Lucien.  And while I loved Julia, hearing every single honest thought from Lucien sent me into a tailspin.

“I’m not just screwed up, Ms. Hughes. I’m as broken as they come, but I don’t need to be fixed. I don’t want to be fixed.” He caged her in. “I like all my fucked-up shards and pieces. They make me who I am. They make me real. The question is, can you handle real?”

Lucien de Vincent was sexy, charismatic, loved to be in control and was off the charts scorching hot.  Whether it was his looks, to the way he walked and even the words that came out of his mouth, everything he did was seductive.  So if you love alpha playboys then you definitely have to meet Lucien. But Lucien loved his twin with his whole heart, I loved seeing that side of him.  And while he had a vested interest in who would be caring for Maddie, he crossed the line with Julia. Oh man did he cross the line! But I loved the first time he did it and every single time after that!

“Had a moment?” she whispered, and then yanked her hand free. She lifted her chin. “It was barely a moment.”
A surprised laugh almost escaped him as he stared down at her. Damn. He liked that. He liked
her. He was smart enough to keep his expression blank, because at least she wasn’t trying to grab her purse and storm out.

Julia and Lucien played such a sexy game.  She was drawn to him, but he was her boss. And while he was drawn to her, he was never with the same woman twice.  But Julia continually stood up and challenged Lucien. She was unlike anyone he’d ever met before. Which seemed to fuel his want for her.  But there was no way they could ignore that anytime they were together the sexual tension and fun banter was off the charts! It all just added to the list of reasons why this book was impossible to put down!

Julia’s hips tipped back, into his, and she bit down on her lip at the sound of his deep, throaty growl.
God, she never heard a man make that sound before. Not like that. Not like he was about to devour her.

There is so much more I want to say, especially about that sexy beginning, those mysterious footsteps and the fact that it felt as though there were hints of paranormal elements in the house and even with the brothers.  But so much of this tale is shrouded in mystery, so my lips are zipped.  And it was a lot fun to watch as everything slowly unfolded while we got little clues here and there.  While I guessed two of the main mysteries, it definitely didn’t take away from my enjoyment. I found myself always second guessing my thoughts, because there were so many different ways it could all play out.  So hang on, because you’re going to be on one crazy ride. Now I can’t wait to start the second book in this series, Moonlight Seduction. It’s about Lucien’s brother Gabe, and I’m excited to step back into this gothic feeling series!

Synopsis:

They say everyone’s a superhero to someone. I’m not sure who I’m supposed to save, but I know who saved me.

We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.

And then he disappeared.

Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has taken away my desire to dream.

I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy.

He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer, and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still, something about him—it feels…familiar.

He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else. Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.

This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew, is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from myself.

Review:

A Boy Like You was an extremely emotional story.  It was filled with heartache, struggles, alcoholism and strained relationships.  But there was also friendship, hope, courage, happiness and the possibility of love.  This was my first Ginger Scott book and I came to realize that her writing touches my heart.  I couldn’t help but be moved by this story.  So I’ll definitely be picking up more books by Ginger Scott!

He holds me until all of the other kids go home.
He holds me until the police arrive.
He holds me until I tell him it’s okay to let go.
And then he disappears.
For good.

The prologue pulled me in right from the beginning.  We got to watch who Josselyn Winters, aka Joss, use to be as a child.  It was the moments before her whole world exploded. We met her best friend Taryn, the Marley twins and the kid Christopher who ended up saving her life and then never came back to school.  We also watched the demise of her parents marriage. I found myself completely addicted and it was a fabulous way to start this book. Then chapter one jumps eight years later and my heart broke with how Joss’ life had turned out.

I step closer, until my front touches his back, and Wes pauses when our bodies meet. He sighs, and I lean my head against him, feeling both mortified and turned on from this touch.
“I’m so sorry,” I squeak out, feeling his body rise and fall with his long breath.
“You’re a beautiful girl. Don’t be sorry,” he says, his head tilted to the side enough that I am given the gift of looking at the line of his jaw and chin. His eyes glance over his shoulder and meet mine briefly before he inhales once more and leads me through the door while I replay what he said over and over.
Beautiful girl.

If the prologue pulled me in, then that first chapter sealed the deal.  There was a baseball scene that showed me in a way how this story would be written.  You see, the author’s way of writing tension in such a normal setting was beyond addicting.  I completely devoured it.  Yeah it made some of the scenes, and even the story, longer.  But it worked for me and I was completely mesmerized.

The familiar feeling is gone quickly, but it leaves a trace of something behind. A memory. Wes Stokes has been here before. My chest constricts as I glance to the place in my front lawn a few yards behind me, the place where a boy once saved my life, and I live in that memory for a few long seconds before shelving it again—burying it back under everything I’ve promised myself to forget.

So Joss and her best friend Taryn met the Stokes brothers.  Wes, TK and Levi. And I loved how the five of them formed a friendship so easily.  But there was something about Wes that felt familiar to Joss. She swore that he was or at least reminded her of the boy who saved her life all of those years ago.  Christopher.  We got little clues here and there, along with another type of an element, and I was glued to the pages trying to figure out how it was all going to unfold.

He’s caught between being my savior and being my seducer, and right now, I don’t need saving—I need his touch.

Just like the story, Wes captured my heart from the beginning.  He was mysterious and quiet at times but his actions and even eyes spoke volumes.  And then when he did talk, oh my, he had my emotions in a mess. I loved him entirely.  Not only was he a gentleman, thoughtful and caring, but he could be seductive without even trying.  Wes made my heart race easily and often. Especially when he was being protective of Joss.

“I can’t save you from you, Joss. Please…give up.” – Wes

Joss on the other hand could be difficult to love.  She was her own worst enemy and she didn’t make the best decisions in life.  And even though Wes was patient with Joss, you could feel that he didn’t agree with what she was doing at times.  But underneath it all, I saw a girl worth loving. And I kept hoping that she would try to make the right choices for herself.  That she would turn it all around. Joss definitely owed it to herself after the life she had been dealt.

I give in, and I step into him, letting my forehead press deep into the center of his chest as I bring my limp arms around him, my fingers gripping the fabric of his shirt on the back. His chin slowly falls to the top of my head and his own arms circle me tentatively at first, until finally they lock around me, his palms sliding in slow tender circles along my skin. I’m overcome with his strength and the feel of his embrace, and I do something that I regret the moment it starts.
I cry.

You see, after Joss’ mom left them, her dad became a shadow of himself and turned into an alcoholic.  There were many scenes between Joss and her dad that either had me with tears in my eyes or sobbing.  He could be so horrific and mean to her.  Even while she was trying to take care of her dad who was drunk.  And those drunken moments took me back to my teen years. To one of my best friends whose situation was very different, but they still dealt with a parent who was drunk every night.  Those moments gutted me and reminded me of so many countless scenes I saw with my own eyes. But it was not all darkness, because Joss started to realize that she now had Wes in her life.  And maybe, just maybe she could have the life she always wanted. But heaven help Joss because she had to go through hell.  I never thought the book would go where it went, so hold on because it was an extremely emotional ride.

I’m so very lost to this boy, it isn’t even funny. I’ve given over my control, and as much as it scares the shit out of me, I’m more afraid of missing out on him—anything with him.

There were so many others that I adored.  I loved Wes’ brothers, TK and Levi. I adored Joss’ friends Taryn and even Kyle.  But Kyle ripped out my heart again and again. He had some struggles too, like Joss, and I could read a whole book just about him!  This book was the first in a duology and while it stopped at a great spot, I was definitely filled with the urge that I have to know what happens next!  So if you find yourself pulled in by YA stories that are on the more emotional side, but are also filled with hope, then definitely give A Boy Like You a try!

Synopsis:

Zera is a Heartless―the immortal, unaging soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger, Zera longs for freedom from the woods they hide in. With her heart in a jar under Nightsinger's control, she serves the witch unquestioningly.

Until Nightsinger asks Zera for a prince's heart in exchange for her own, with one addendum: if she's discovered infiltrating the court, Nightsinger will destroy Zera's heart rather than see her tortured by the witch-hating nobles.

Crown Prince Lucien d'Malvane hates the royal court as much as it loves him―every tutor too afraid to correct him and every girl jockeying for a place at his darkly handsome side. No one can challenge him―until the arrival of Lady Zera. She's inelegant, smart-mouthed, carefree, and out for his blood. The prince's honor has him quickly aiming for her throat.

So begins a game of cat and mouse between a girl with nothing to lose and a boy who has it all.

Winner takes the loser's heart.

Literally.

Review:

Bring Me Their Hearts was absolutely spellbinding and will stay with me for a long time to come.  With an intriguing story and witty characters, I found myself quickly flying through the pages. Especially since I always had that feeling that I had to know what happened next.  So if you enjoy YA Fantasies that are filled with banter, mystery, romance, political intrigue and darkness, then you definitely have to give this book a try!

It’s a small mercy that my lie is also a truth. I throw on my best genuine smile.
“I simply want your heart, my prince.”

From that first chapter, I was pulled in.  Zara, a heartless who was bound to the witch Nightsinger, arrived at the castle to meet the King, Queen and Prince Lucien.  She was under the ruse of being a possible bride to the Prince, so she could steal his heart. Literally. In exchange for the Prince’s heart, Zara would finally have her heart and freedom from Nightsinger. Those first few moments of Zara and Prince Lucien meeting?  Oh I loved it! Together they were witty and charismatic and I was beyond intrigued to see how it would all play out!

Ruffles hide so much of my anger.  Silk gloves do a perfect job of making my hands looks clean, instead of the bloodstained sinners I know them to be.  The mirror whispers I’m beautiful, even though all I can see is the twisted, malformed darkness of my unheart bleeding out of my every pore.

After that first chapter, we jumped back in time.  And while it was necessary, so we could learn about Zara and her world, I couldn’t wait to get back to her moments with the Prince.  Stepping into this book, I didn’t realize how dark it was to be a heartless.  They were viewed as horrific monsters who craved destruction and blood.  So I found my heart breaking for Zara.  For all that she had done, for how she was trapped and for the situation she was in.  Even though her duty was to protect the witch, Nightsinger, I wanted her to have her freedom.  But I had a feeling that wouldn’t be so simple.

“They will ignore you.  They will try and tell you that you aren’t good enough.  This is a lie. You are an Y’shennria. You have always been good enough.” – Y’shennria to Zera

Along the way, we met those who helped transform Zara into a lady.  So she would have a chance to capture the Prince’s heart. I adored Lady Y’shennria, who played Zara’s aunt, and even Reginal, who was one of her employees.  While they were standoffish at first, I slowly came to care for them. With her training complete, Zara found herself in the castle. And I found my heart beating faster since he was there.  I couldn’t wait for Zara and Prince Lucien’s moments to simmer and explode.

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

Prince Lucien was such a complex man who easily stole my heart.  Not only was he wounded from the past, but he hated the courts.  So of course the more we learned exactly who he was and what he did, I was a goner.  He was caring, thoughtful, passionate and such a brave man. But he could also be cynical and kept others an arm’s length away.  But when he was with Zara? He was still haughty 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 want nothing more than to stay in this moment, my hand in his.  But that’s an impossibility. A weakness. I am a monster, and he’s a human.  I want his heart, and I want his other heart. His affection, his blood. I want it all.
But if I take one, I can’t have the other.

Zara was also a complex character.  She was sarcastic, witty, spoke her mind and wasn’t afraid to challenge others.  I loved how sure she was of herself and she was a heroine that I could easily respect.  It was so much fun watching what should have just been a job turn into so much more. The more she learned about the Prince and his secrets, the more she found herself conflicted.  Her freedom came first, but at what cost when the Prince started treating her unlike any one else ever had. And I found myself nervous. She was to turn the man I had fallen for into a monster.  How could I ever forgive her?

But I knew – I knew this was what awaited me.  This was my fate from the beginning, so the sadness I feel clawing at my insides isn’t justified   I should’ve been prepared for this. I had two weeks to prepare, to harden myself, and I frittered it away pretending to be human instead.

The further I got into this book, the more obsessed and nervous I felt.  For everyone’s outcome, including Malvane, the Prince’s personal guard and Fione who I can’t say who she was.  But I loved both of those characters just as deeply. And what lead up to the finale was a huge bang of emotions.  There were moments that gutted and elated me and I even found myself with tears slowly dripping down my face.  So now I’m dying until that next book releases because the ending was a cliffhanger.  And I have a feeling that this is going to be an amazing trilogy. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here!

Synopsis:

After battling werewolves and evil aunties, Bryar Rose is ready to enjoy her new life. No more crazy aunties. Her curse is toast. And Bry’s new man, Knox, is literally a dream come true. Best of all, Bry will soon attend a regular high school. Forget those sketchy tutors! To get ready, Bry is dedicating the rest of her summer to some serious back-to-school shopping with her best friend, Elle. It’s a blast, except for one thing:

Mysterious strangers are following Bry across Manhattan.

All these stalkers have oddly familiar scents and an uncanny ability to slip into the shadows whenever Bry tries to confront them. Even worse, their presence is making Knox act crazy with a capital C.

But Bry’s having none of it. Enough of her life has already been ruined by secrets. With Elle’s help, Bry plans to confront these strangers, find out what they want, and send them packing. Trouble is, the truth about their identity won’t be so easy to manage, especially when Bry finds out how these stalkers could change her future with Knox…and not for the better.

Review:

*You can read my review of Book #1 Wolves and Roses here*

Moonlight and Midtown was a ton of fun and the perfect way to see what our favorite characters were up to.  Ultimately we got to watch Bryar and Elle’s shopping extravaganza and oh my gosh, it was action packed and a little bit crazy lol.  But we also got to learn more about the world that they lived in and watch Bryar and Knox start to find their place in life. This novella was a quick, lighthearted read that left me feeling even more excited for the next book in this series!

Nyxa takes a half step backward. “I command you to leave my presence.” But her words come out as a half whisper.
Nyxa is afraid.
As well she should be.
Knox and I share a quick look. There’s no need to speak. We both know what we want to do.

I loved getting a peak into Bryar’s struggles, since she learned what she was.  But the poor girl couldn’t catch a break and her wolf was uncontrollable. Thankfully she had Elle, her bestie, who was ready to take her on a shopping trip since she kept destroying her clothes every time she shifted.  And speaking of Elle, we also got to see Alex, a warlock and Knox’s best friend. The interaction between Elle and Alex was a lot of fun and I need to find out more about Elle’s past and why that hinders them from being together.  They’re so fabulous together!  See, I need that next book now lol.

Right here, this moment. This is what I like so much about being with Knox. He understands me like no one else ever has.

But my favorite in this series?  Knox. He was as seductive as ever.  And I loved what a good friend he had become to Bryar.  They worked together so well.  I mean, yes he was her mate, but still, I loved the way they meshed.  It warmed my heart how Knox would help Byrar out and that he was always by her side. Even though he had his own struggles……

His ice-blue eyes lock with mine as he twirls us around. “Say it again.”
My face turns about three shades of red. “Mate.”

Just like the first book in this series, this novella was beyond adorable.  So if you loved Wolves and Roses, definitely give this one a try.  It was a super quick read and it was a ton of fun.  I loved every minute of it!

REVIEW – Hot Asset (21 Wall Street #1) by Lauren Layne

REVIEW – Hot Asset (21 Wall Street #1) by Lauren LayneHot Asset (21 Wall Street #1)
by Lauren Layne
Purchase on: Amazon
Add to: Goodreads

Synopsis:

A sexy agent hounds Wall Street's hottest new wolf in an exhilarating novel from New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne.Ian Bradley is the definition of a Wall Street hotshot: seven-figure salary, designer suits, and a corner office. His drive off the floor is just as potent. Every woman who knows him has felt the rush. But now he's met his match in Lara McKenzie-a woman with the power to bring Ian to his knees.An ambitious, whip-smart daughter of FBI agents, Lara is a rising star in fighting white-collar crime. Her latest case-the investigation of Ian Bradley for insider trading-could make her career. She knows a scoundrel when she sees one, and Ian fits the bill: a cocky, ridiculously handsome bad boy with a slick swagger.She'll do anything to prove he's guilty. He'll do anything to prove he's not. But it's only a matter of time before their fierce battle of wits gets oh so hot and personal. Now taking down Ian has become more than business for Lara. It's become a pleasure-and there's more at risk than she ever dreamed.

Review:

*covers face* This rating hurts my heart because Lauren Layne is one of my favorite authors.  But I wasn’t able to connect to any of the characters, so I was never once pulled into the book.  Looking back, I’m sure there has to be something wrong on my end.  Especially since a few months ago I read and fell madly in love with her previous release, Runaway Groom.  If you haven’t read that one yet, definitely give it a try! It was hilarious, sigh worthy, crazy at times and so much fun!  

I’m torn between regret and relief, because she’s SEC, I’m Wall Street— we’re about as compatible as a wolf and a lamb.
Though, for the life of me, I’m not sure who’s who in this scenario. – Ian

So when I put Hot Asset down, I realized that I am going to give this book another try.  It definitely deserves it!  I mean, this story is one I would normally fall in love with.  So right before the next book in this series releases, in September, I’m going to pick this back up.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that hopefully I will make that connection and fall head over heels in love with Hot Asset.

I don’t want to play nice.
I want to fucking fight it. – Ian

Before I step away, let me tell you a little bit about what was in the pages.  I think a lot of people will love it. First we met Ian Bradley.  He was confident, charming, seductive and underneath it all he had a heart of gold.  He found himself being investigated by the SEC.  And the woman heading the investigation, Lara McKenzie, completely intrigued him.

So is Ian Bradley hot? Yes. Very. But I don’t need hot. I’d settle for someone a little plain, even a little boring, just so long as he’s loyal. – Lara

Lara was fabulous at her job.  And Ian’s case was going to help her move onto the next stage of her career, into the FBI.  Going into the FBI had been one of her lifelong goals, and her parents worked for them too.  It seemed like Ian’s case would be a solid win for Lara, but the case and Ian are not at all what she expected.

I want her to see me as something other than the fucking case. – Ian

This book is definitely for those who are into a little bit of love to hate with some forbidden angst.  And who also like to alternate between the two main characters.  There are some wonderful friends that you will meet, plus there was a little bit of a mystery which was fun.  Normally that all would amount to me gushing a ton and trying to get a lot of my friends to add this to their tbr.  But that lack of connection completely ruined my reading experience.  Sigh.  So here’s hoping you end up loving this book a lot more than I did and hopefully when I pick this one back up in the fall I will love it too!
