Review: Hunting Desire by C.M. Dahl




Publication Date: 10/23/2014

Series: Shattered City #1
Rating: 5 Stars

 

Official Blurb:

Gavin Kincaid and the other Guardians have protected the Shattered City for centuries. But now he faces the one threat even his werewolf strength can't overcome alone: demons are attacking the city from within. His superior calls in elite Hell Hunter Nerine.

Gavin doesn't want outside help. But to his shock, he discovers he wants the beautiful tracker like no other woman he's ever met.

Nerine carries a secret that might just kill her. To protect it, she keeps everyone at arm's length, but her desire for Gavin may make that impossible.

Together, they fight the demons determined to destroy the Shattered City and seize the powerful, mysterious artifacts it holds, until a hidden enemy strikes. Now Nerine must face the demons within her to save Gavin, the city...and the world.



I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Simply put, I really enjoyed this book. The world building is air tight and filled with mystery and adventure. The characters themselves are well developed and approachable. Gavin, the leading male, I will say has a definite pair of steel balls. I’m not exactly sure I’d approach a demon hunter as he approached Nerine in their first meeting. Their relationship development was like a proverbial cat and mouse game, which spices up the novel even more. The way I imagined Gavin’s Scottish accent could melt the paint off of a car the way he speaks to his beauty Nerine. Trust me ladies, if this man was real, I think Nerine would be battling more than poison slinging demons on a daily basis. This book will take possession of you so I’d advise clearing your schedules of anything that needs to be done. Prepare your husband or significant other to make dinner and put the kiddos to bed because no one will tear you away from this book.

Review: Catch Me When I Fall by Vicki Leigh




Publication Date: 10/23/2014
Series: Dreamcatcher #1
Rating: 4 Stars


Official Blurb:

Recruited at his death to be a Protector of the Night, seventeen-year-old Daniel Graham has spent two-hundred years fighting Nightmares and guarding humans from the clawed, red-eyed creatures that feed off people’s fears. Each night, he risks his eternal life, having given up his chance at an afterlife when he chose to become a Protector. That doesn’t stop a burnt-out Daniel from risking daring maneuvers during each battle. He’s become one of the best, but he wants nothing more than to stop.

Then he’s given an assignment to watch over sixteen-year-old Kayla Bartlett, a clinically depressed patient in a psychiatric ward. Nightmares love a human with a tortured past. Yet, when they take a deep interest in her, appearing in unprecedented numbers, the job becomes more dangerous than any Daniel’s ever experienced. He fights ruthlessly to keep the Nightmares from overwhelming his team and Kayla. Soon, Daniel finds himself watching over Kayla during the day, drawn to why she’s different, and what it is about her that attracts the Nightmares. And him.

A vicious attack on Kayla forces Daniel to break the first Law and reveal his identity. Driven by his growing feelings for her, he whisks her away to Rome where others like him can keep her safe. Under their roof, the Protectors discover what Kayla is and why someone who can manipulate Nightmares has her in his sights. But before they can make a move, the Protectors are betrayed and Kayla is kidnapped. Daniel will stop at nothing to save her. Even if it means giving up his immortality.


Daniel’s a long time Dreamcatcher. He’s the best and damn good at banishing the nightmares from his charges. He’s never had a fall from grace when it comes to his charges. Yet, from first sight Kayla become his kryptonite.  He sees her pretty face and can’t help but feel for her and her tragic back story. He knows something isn’t right with Kayla’s situation and he’ll break all the rules to keep her safe. Is Kayla worth losing his immortality or is this just a fleeting romantic moment in his long life?

Kayla herself has faced a serious road of trials and tribulations. She roasted her mom’s boyfriend like a marshmallow at a campfire after he tried to sexually assault her. This landed her into the loony bin. Kayla isn’t crazy, but to stay away from her awful memories the psych ward may just be the safest place for her. That is until the nightmares get worse and a man appears out of thin air claiming to be her assigned protector. Maybe she really is losing her mind.

What’s not to love about this story? Daniel’s personality will radiate within your heart and soul. You’ll find as you read this book that Kayla’s situation isn’t as clear cut as it seems to both her and Daniel. This story is unlike any other that I have read. The very premise for this story is unique and engaging. My only compliant is that I wish Kayla as a heroine with some serious fire power would have been more of a tough as nails heroine than a wilting flower with situational violent tendencies. All and all a great beginning to a new series and a hell of a good read.

Review: Gray Bishop by Kelly Meade

Publication Date: 10/21/2014
Series: Cornerstone Run Trilogy
Rating: 5 Stars



Official Blurb:

Some people need something to fight for…


With the attacks on their homes escalating and human half-breeds seeking sanctuary among them, the loup garou are reaching their breaking point. Two, in particular.



After failing to stop his little brother’s kidnapping years ago, Bishop McQueen angrily broods on his shame, though no one else blames him.



Jillian Reynolds is still dealing with a tragic accident that took everything she ever wanted from life. And her attraction to Bishop is only making things more difficult.



When word reaches them that Jillian's hometown is under attack, the Alpha takes Bishop, Jillian, and a group of enforcers to assist in the battle. And it is in this chaos that both Bishop and Jillian will have to face their pasts—and the true feelings they have for each other—if they are going to survive…



The war with the crazy triplets continues on in Gray Bishop. The triplets have attacked closer to home to the Cornerstone Run and its causalities will rip apart to packs. Without giving too much away, one of the McQueen brothers will have to live to his fullest potential to protect his pack and his love. When the challenge comes rolling into town, will this McQueen rise to the occasion or face final checkmate?

One of the best things about this book is that the story picks up right after Black Rook leaves off. Rook and Brynn are relishing in their happiness while Rook's brothers face the darkness still. This time around Bishop is at the helm. As a gray wolf, Bishop was never meant to be Alpha. Rook's decision to forego the Alpha position for his love of half breed Brynn leaves Bishop as the next McQueen in line. 

Jillian is the only child of another run's Alpha. She's sent on a mission by her father to aid the Cornerstone run as well as search out a new mate. Being widowed and deeply grieving for her tragic losses, Jillian knows her missionary trip has its ulterior motives by her father. When her beast does recognize a worthy male, its one she so cannot have. 

The ending is a real emotional roller coaster ride. You will go to anxiety to fear to happiness back to fear within just a few short pages. As much as I loved Black Rook, Gray Bishop has enthralled me even more with this series. Meade has definitely setup a firework riddled ending to this trilogy in the final book, White Knight, being released in Jan 2015.

Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover



Publication Date: March 18, 2014
Series and Book Number: 1
Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb: 

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance.

At twenty-two years old, Sydney has a great life: She's in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her--and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can't take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there's something about Sydney that Ridge can't ignore, either. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one...

Original music created for Maybe Someday by musician Griffin Peterson can be accessed through the website listed in the ebook and paperback. 

From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, This Girl, and Losing Hope, Maybe Someday is destined to be another bestseller and long-lasting fan favorite.




This is by far my favorite book from Colleen Hoover so far. I had so many different emotions while reading this book and yet I could not put it down. When we first meet Sydney she is living with her best friend and has her loving boyfriend Hunter of 2 years. Every night Sydney goes out onto her balcony to listen to her neighbor play guitar. Not only has Sydney noticed Ridge but Ridge has also noticed Sydney. These two form a friendship and then Ridge reveals that Hunter is cheating on Sydney with her best friend. Her whole world is torn apart and she is left with no place to go until Ridge offers her a room. This is where the book takes a turn because I hated the boyfriend and best friend and I loved the new roommates. There were so many times in this book I laughed hard at some of their pranks they all played on each other. When Sydney starts helping Ridge write music their relationship starts to change. Oh but the problems that lie in the way of these two being together. This book really had me guessing who should be with who but also pulling for Sydney and Ridge to get their HEA. I like how this book is told from both Sydney and Ridge. I don’t normally like to many books with music but this book was absolutely beautiful! This book is a little different than Colleen’s other books and I loved it. Looking forward to more books from Colleen!  

Happy Thanksgiving!


Saints and Sinners Books would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the time with family and friends and the bountiful feast.


Thanksgiving Day, a function which originated in New England two or three centuries ago when those people recognized that they really had something to be thankful for — annually, not oftener — if they had succeeded in exterminating their neighbors, the Indians, during the previous twelve months instead of getting exterminated by their neighbors, the Indians. Thanksgiving Day became a habit, for the reason that in the course of time, as the years drifted on, it was perceived that the exterminating had ceased to be mutual and was all on the white man's side, consequently on the Lord's side; hence it was proper to thank the Lord for it and extend the usual annual compliments. ~Mark Twain

But, don’t forget to get some shut eye.. tomorrow is Black Friday!!

Review: My Skylar by Penelope Ward



Publication Date: June 10,2014
Series: Gemini #3
Rating: 4 stars


Official Blurb: 

This book is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

From the author of the #1 bestselling romance, Jake Undone, comes a friends-to-lovers story of longing, passion, betrayal and redemption...with a twist that will rip your heart out.

Skylar was my best friend, but I secretly pined for her. One thing after another kept us apart, and I've spent the last decade in fear of losing her forever.

First, it was the cancer, but she survived only to face the unthinkable at my hands. Because of me, she left town. For years, I thought I'd never see her again.

But now she's back...and living with him.

I don't deserve her after everything I've put her through, but I can't live without her. This is my last chance because she's about to make the biggest mistake of her life. I can see it her eyes: she doesn't love him. She still loves me...which is why I have to stop her before it's too late.

My Skylar is a STANDALONE story of 99,000 words and a companion to the novel, Jake Undone. It does NOT need to be read in conjunction with any other book.


This book is a roller coaster ride of emotions. This book is told by both Mitch and Skylar. This story goes back to how they met as kids on summer and how fast they connected. Then after 5 years Skylar finds Mitch again at a party and come to find out he has moved to town and lives right across the street from her. I felt bad for Mitch at this young age of 16 because his parents went through a horrible divorce and he feels like he will turn out like his father. Then when he realizes how much he needs Skylar tragedy sticks this young couple. Skylar has cancer and has to move with her father to be closer to the center for her chemo appointments. This was one of my favorite parts in the book because when Skylar loses her hair Mitch shaves his head to match her. Oh it was just beautiful the love between these two. Then after 2 years Skylar is in recovery and back with Mitch and then Mitch gets a 4 year scholar ship to a college 5 hours away. So just when everything is going good something REALLY bad happens. This is the part of the book I wanted to through my kindle and scream and cry with Skylar. So now 5 years later Mitch has come back into Skylar’s life and she is engaged to Kevin. WOW this is when things really FINALLY start to heat up for Mitch and Skylar. This book with keep your emotions in check for sure while reading this book. The only thing is I wish Mitch and Skylar had spent a little more time together with just a little less drama. These two couldn’t catch a break until almost the very end of the book. But I did enjoy this book and I would highly recommend this book.

SNSB Interviews Jennifer Estep!



      First off, I am a HUGE fan of your Elemental Assassin series!! I want to start off by first thank you for taking the time to do an interview with Saints and Sinners Books. Now, for the first question.  I know you are not only an author, but also a fellow book reader as well. What genre of books do you like to read?

JE: Thanks for hosting me on your blog. I appreciate that and all the nice words about my Elemental Assassin series. I read in a lot of different genres – all kinds of fantasy, romance, and young adult books, along with mysteries, spy thrillers, and comics and graphic novels. Some of my favorite authors include Robin McKinley, Ian Fleming, Donald Westlake, David Eddings, Lisa Kleypas, and many others.

           Gin is one of my favorite heroine characters of all time. I’ve always wondered, how did you come up with elemental powers that some of your characters possess?

JE: Thanks! I appreciate that. I thought that elemental powers would be interesting to write about and would let me come up with some cool magic for Gin and the secondary characters, as well as give the villains some really powerful magic. Air, Fire, Ice, and Stone were the four main elements that I settled on because I thought that they would give me a good range of powers and magic to choose from. I always enjoy figuring out how Gin’s Ice and Stone magic can grow and change in the books, all the different things she can do with it, and how she can use her magic to defeat the bad guys.

      Some of my blog followers are huge fans as well. I opened up the floor for my fans to have a chance to ask their own questions. Jeneane Johnston asks “How did you come up with her character?”

JE: Thanks, Jeneane! Glad you are enjoying the series.
I always enjoyed reading fantasy stories about assassin characters. One day, I thought it would be cool to write my own assassin character and tell the stories that I wanted to tell. So that was sort of the beginning of Gin Blanco.

When I started writing the series, I knew that I wanted Gin to have a tragic past, something that really shaped her into the assassin the Spider. I also knew that I wanted the series to have a really dark, gritty, Southern feel, so that’s why I set the series in my fictional Southern city of Ashland. Gin just sort of evolved from all of that.


      The very flirtatious Finn is also one of my favorite characters of the series. Will he ever see him settle down in future books?

JE: I’ve gotten a lot of nice comments about Finnegan Lane, Gin’s foster brother, and readers really seem to like his character. Finn is a lot of fun for me to write. Right now in the series, he is involved with Detective Bria Coolidge, Gin’s sister, so he is fairly settled down, although Finn will always be something of a flirt.

 I know a lot of readers always wonder whether any of a book’s characters are based off of someone in the author’s life. Is there any specific character or character traits that has trickled into the series from someone you know?

JE: I don’t base my characters on people that I know in real life. But sometimes, I will use small traits from people that I know for my characters. For example, Jo-Jo Deveraux, the Air elemental who heals Gin, hates to wear socks, and my grandma also hates to wear socks. So I will use sometimes use quirky things like that to help round out my characters.


            I will admit I have HUGE book boyfriend man crush on Owen. (I think my husband’s jealous sssshh) In The Spider, we find out about a big shocker in Owen’s past in relation to Gin. Did you always have Owen in mind when it came to Gin’s future partner?

JE: Owen seems to be quite popular with readers. So does Finn. Sometimes, I think they are more popular as characters than Gin is. LOL.

At the beginning of the series, Gin actually has a different love interest in Detective Donovan Caine. But as I wrote Spider’s Bite and Web of Lies, the first two books, I realized that Gin needed someone who understood her better than Donovan ever would. So that’s why I introduced Owen in Web of Lies.

I think Owen is a much better fit for Gin. Like Gin, Owen went through some bad times when he was younger, so Owen really understands Gin and her actions in a way that Donovan never could.

            After reading Black Widow, I can’t help but wonder if the next Elemental Assassin’s book, Spider’s Trap, may be the last of Gin’s series. Will there be other books in the Elemental assassin’s series after Spider’s Trap?

JE: Yes, there will be at least one more book in the series after Spider’s Trap, so 14 books total as of right now. I really love writing the series, and I am hoping to write at least a few more books beyond that. So we’ll see what happens.

      I’d again would like to thank you for spending time with Saints and Sinners Books. My final question is … do you have anything else to share about Black Widow or any other projects that may be in the works?

JE: Thanks for hosting me.
Spider’s Trap, the 13th book in my Elemental Assassin series, will be out on July 28. I’m also writing book #14, which is tentatively scheduled to be out on Dec. 29.

I also have a new young adult urban fantasy series starting in 2015. It’s called the Black Blade series, and Cold Burn of Magic, the first book, will be out on April 28.

Review: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep



Publication Date: 11/25/2014
Series: Elemental Assassins #12
Rating: 5 Stars


Official Blurb:

There’s nothing worse than a cruel, cunning enemy with time to kill—and my murder to plan.

With wicked Fire elemental Mab Monroe long gone, you’d think I could finally catch a break. But someone’s always trying to take me down, either as Gin Blanco or my assassin alter-ago. Now along comes the Spider’s new arch-nemesis, the mysteriously named M. M. Monroe, who is gleefully working overtime to trap me in a sticky web of deceit.

The thing is, I’m not the only target. I can see through the tangled threads enough to know that every bit of bad luck my friends have been having lately is no accident—and that each unfortunate “coincidence” is just one more arrow drawing ever closer to hitting the real bulls-eye. Though new to Ashland, this M. M. Monroe is no stranger to irony, trying to get me, an assassin, framed for murder. Yet, as my enemy’s master plan is slowly revealed, I have a sinking feeling that it will take more than my powerful Ice and Stone magic to stop my whole life from going up in flames.



I’ll admit going into Black Widow I thought for sure this was that Elemental Assassins book. Estep had built up the perfect ending to a series with addition of new foe seeking old revenge on Gin. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that not only was this not the last book of the series, but a new excited future ahead lies for Gin.  To ascertain that future, she has to fight the strongest elemental she’s ever faced. She’s not only fighting for her life this time, but the lives of her loved ones. Ashland’s new super villain has meticulously planned her assault on Gin by severing the support lines of her friends and family before hitting her head on. You see an entirely different side of Gin when it comes to her protective streak. The assassin she was trained to be has the skill set to handle the task at hand, but its Gin’s heart that going to get in the way.

In the past, we’ve only been given glimpses in her softer side. She’s had to be the tough, kick-ass assassin for so long it’s easy to forget that the softer, womanly side of her is in deeply buried inside of her as well. Her new enemy knows how to hit her where it hurts… her friends and family. No one before has ever considered them to be her weaknesses. M.M. Monroe showcases her ability to break down her enemy in an unconventional ways. The newest Monroe steps up her mother are game by 1000 times. Gin has never faced someone as cold and calculating as M.M. Monroe. This only makes Gin’s fight for survival even more important.

Throughout this novel, you will feel many emotions. Gin’s angry radiates as it’s done in most of the Elemental Assassins books, but as I mentioned before, as a reader, you really see how much Gin has growth emotionally throughout the series. Black Widow is the climatic book that will cement Gin’s future in Ashland. This novel is gritty yet leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy at times. Never before could you have ever associated the words warm and fuzzy with Gin Blanco. Estep’s plot and character development is bar none some of the best I’ve seen. I’m very excited to see the consequences of Gin’s actions and decisions in the next book of the series.

Blog Tour: Damned Sinner by Jami Denise



NOW AVAILABLE
RELEASE DATE:  November 24, 2014

Blurb
Vince Donovan has lost a lot in his life. He has lived life under a code of greed, lies and crime - never allowing anyone to get too close. After losing the empire he fought to build at the hands of a psychotic man in pursuit of revenge, Vince vows to rebuild what he once had. Along with his once protege and now partner, Jayne King, he sets out to create an empire that is based on beautiful women, sex and sin.

Kelsey Franklin is young, beautiful, sexy and should be forbidden. Kelsey is also the one woman that Vince has vowed never to have and yet is the one woman he wants and needs.

When love happens in the unlikeliest of circumstances Vince must ask himself - Is love fit for the damned and the sinner?


Excerpt
Her lips were glossy and covered with a thick sheen of red. I stared at her mouth while dragging a finger across them and let the paint follow a path down her chin, over her neck, and down her chest. The stain coated the light fabric of the white dress—spoiling it, just like I was spoiling her.
“You can see right through this,” I said roughly and dragged a finger underneath the neckline of the dress. Your little pink nipples are pushing right through it—aching and ready for someone to bite them.”
I let my teeth snap in her ear and then sucked the soft skin into my mouth. “A man like me sees a woman in a dress like this, and that’s what he wants. To touch the nipples you so willingly show off, to bite, pull, tug, and suck on them. He wants to pull those sweet little tits into his mouth, let his tongue run over them until your nipples are so hard they hurt.
She was shaking, but I wasn’t going to stop there. As if to show her exactly what I was talking about, I moved the palm of my hand over her shoulder and down to her chest. I cupped one of her ripe tits in my hand, squeezing softly at first, and then wrapped my fist around it tightly and pulled.
She whimpered, and her knees shook. I was testing her, and so far she failed. As badly as she thought she wanted what I had to give, she had no fucking clue what it meant. She wasn’t ready.
I released her from my grasp and ran my hand over her clavicle, smearing the rotten red mess all over her chest and the top of the dress before moving it down over her belly.
“I could see the valley between your legs when you walked down the hallway,” I growled in her ear. “I could see your little pussy, the sweet V where I’d sink my cock. All I could think about was your long, skinny legs wrapped around my back while I fucked you right there in the hallway.”
She whined. “Please, oh God.” She grabbed the collar of my shirt and tried to pull me closer. “Fuck me, Vince.”
My cock jumped in reply, but I ignored her and went on with my ministrations. I reached the hem of her skirt, and with a swift rip, I yanked it up over her hip. There wasn’t much of it there in the first place, so it was no big task. That pissed me off even more. There were maybe three inches of lift and I could see her pussy.
Rubbing my coarse finger over her soft, silky mound, I stood back and watched her face. I was testing her, but I wasn’t going to push her. If she showed an ounce of regret, I was done. But I had to see where she stood once and for all.
Her eyes fluttered open as if she could read my thoughts. They were as wide as a newborn chick, scared and astonished, but surprised and exhilarated.
But definitely not ready to leave the nest.
I gave her pussy one more swipe of my finger and then a light slap. The shock showed clear in her eyes, and her mouth fell slack with pleasure. I could feel that she was into it, slick and warm and malleable in my hands.
“That’s right, baby,” I said gruffly. “I want to tear this pussy up. I want to make this pussy cry. You have no idea what I want to do to you, and if you don’t stop teasing me, you’re bound to find out.”
She bucked her hips stubbornly, and I narrowed my eyes. Folding my fingers, I gave her clit a hard flick with enough force to knock a dog on its ass.
“You’re not ready for this—or me,” I said, lowering my voice. “I want to defile you in so many ways, but that’s not what you want.”
“Yes,” she said. Her voice shook, and I could feel her heavy heartbeat through her dress.
“I care about what happens to you, Kelsey,” I said as evenly as I could. “That’s why I took you home—where you belonged. If you think walking around in Jayne’s clothes will do you any good, you’re completely wrong. What I want to do with your body is the same thing every other man out there wants. The only difference is, they won’t stop.”
“Don’t stop,” she said weakly, tears sprouting from her eyes. “I can handle anything from you. I love you, and you damn well know it.”
She dropped to her knees abruptly and raised her hands to undo my fly. I had a brief moment of euphoria. This was a regular fantasy of mine to have her on her knees with her mouth on me. It was too fresh and way too clear for me to think straight.
I jerked her up by her shoulders and pinned her back against the wall. “Stop!”
She snarled and fought against my hold on her. “If you don’t want me, why do you care if someone else does?”
I slammed her lightly against the door and leaned forward again so we were eye to eye. “I do want you—that’s not the problem. I want to fuck you. There’s a difference.”



This book…just…woah.

I think if you looked under “sexiest criminal” you’d find Vince’s name. It’s not so much that he literally sweats sex, but more about how complex he is. He’s lived the life of criminal. He’s been the crime boss and lost it all. Now with Jayne King at his side, he’s set his sights on rebuilding his empire. Granted the empire focuses on sex, sin, and sinfully beautiful women. You literally cannot imagine Vince ever wanting to have a monogamous relationship at all. I don’t think even Vince could have predicted what would happen when he set his eyes on Kelsey Franklin for the first time.

Kelsey for Vince’s is the devil’s temptation perched perfectly on the forbidden fruit tree. She’s young, virale, and so damn beautiful. He knows that he shouldn’t taste the forbidden fruit dangling right in front of him, but just like Eve he knows he’s doomed to fail.

This book is an amazing addition to the Jayne King series. It’s relentlessly gritty both in the romantic and dramatic scenes of the book. I will admit this is a little out of the normal genre I read, but it’s the steps out of my reading comfort zone that I often find book gems such as Damned Sinner.
