Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves, #1)

Prince of Wolves
#1 in the Grey Wolves series
By Quinn Loftis
Published June 29th 2011
216 pages

  Jaque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?

My Splurge:

Dude....I freakin love this book. It was amazing. The undeniable, strange, perfectly imperfect love was...well..refreshing.
It was like She was His ENTIRE world and I loved it. What can I say? Imma sucker for romance and this book definitely had it---steamy and awkward and well-> perfect.

BUT.... She spelled y'all wrong. It's y'all (you+all=y'all) not ya'll. they sometimes spoke kind of stiffly but with this it was endearing. At the beginning she talked about the heat too much. I didn't like the book at first, then like 30% through it (according to my kindle) I seriously fell in love.
Oh did I mention I adore sarcasm and funny, witty, and inappropriate at times humor? No? Well I do and this book came with in in abundance!

More like 4.99999 stars. :)

My splurge

OMG. It was really, really good. But the almost love triangle got my emotions in a twist. Ended up with who I finally ended up thinking was the right choice. The writing wasn't as flowey as I wished is was though. 
Let me just say I love mermaids. These merpeople were like the good kind of rule breakers for their society. It was in the most amazing kind of way. 

So 4 stars :)

A Chance for Charity

A Chance for Charity
S.L. Baum
The Immortal One: Book One
260 Pages
Published June 4th 2010 by Createspace 


A new family has just arrived in the isolated mountain town of Telluride, Colorado. Welcome the Johnstons - Jason (a doctor), Rachel (a designer), and their niece Emily (a current High School Senior).

Emily has lived the life of a quiet loner in the past, trying to go unnoticed. But with Telluride being such a small and welcoming town, she finds a group of friends at school almost immediately. When Emily meets Link (another new transplant in town) her world turns upside down. She doesn't understand why she feels a magnetic pull toward him, or why she unknowingly lets her guard down around him. Link is just as confused by his own need to be with her.

Emily knows she is playing with fire. She should be doing whatever she can to keep herself isolated, to keep Link from getting too close. Danger has a way of finding Emily's family - that is what keeps them on the move. They arrive in a new town every few years - it is safer that way.

Because... Emily isn't really Emily... her real name is Charity - and Charity has an even bigger secret. Charity and her family are not like other people, they have "skills" that mere mortals cannot begin to comprehend.

Before long, Charity is struggling with the reality that her two lives are coming closer to each other with each passing day. Soon Link will find himself wrapped in a supernatural world that he never knew existed - and discover that mortals are not the only beings that walk this earth.

(I Love this Summary: Perfection)

Why I love, adore, this utterly amazing book and hereby give is 4.99999 stars.

 This book is AMAZING! The way the author writes flows. There is the perfect amount of description-not too much or too little. Everything is usually explained to my satisfaction. I was a tad bit confused a couple chapters into the book due to the prologue. ----SPOILER BEWARE!!---- Okay, so this is gonna sound creepyish but I love how Charity's first and second love are related. It's not a weird as it sounds, I swear. You have to read the book to understand what I mean. ----END OF SPOILER---
It was something that I could have imagined happening. It was just a really cool setting, plot, character: everything was just really really cool. I just- I don't just got to me. :)

(first published June 23rd 2011) 
Book One in the 'PineLight' Series
Summary of PineLight
 I loved him—that was my torment.
And I was losing him all over again.

Walls crumbled all around me. An undeniable force pulled at my core.
I tried to fight it, I tried to deny it the power, but I was weak.
I felt pain in my side, and I knew that this dark force was winning.
My veins started to burn, and I screamed, but it didn’t stop. 

----I don't think this properly explained this novel so below there is a summary of my own----

The Dark One's are after Clara (Clarabella) and once before they almost succeeded, but her faith was too strong so all they took was her memory. She doesn't remember a thing. Not the fact that her grandfather is with her in hiding, not her mother and father and what they risked for her....not Finn, her closet friend, lover, companion. 
Now they have finally found her. She is on the run. She is on a run from things that she doesn't understand, remember. With people she doesn't know if she can trust.
She has been promised to a Dark Angel, a fallen , a vampire. 
She has to choose who to love, to trust. She has to ultimate journey and face the ultimate loss. In the end she doesn't only lose her heart.


Rating: 2 stars

This book seriously confused me. The start was splotchy and strange. There too much description but the author didn't explain anything. I would have started the prologue off with a glimpse from the past; when she still had her memory and her family and her original life. 
One thing that I thought was really strange was the insults didn't make sense. I know that sounds weird but in my brain everything has a definition and the random insults thrown into the air or at people were...out of place.
One thing that I thought was kinda sorta cool was when there was a 'Beauty and the Beast' moment. It was when she could go anywhere in the castle except that one hallway. My eyes kind of opened wider at that, it was like 'oh. umm. wow. Beauty and the Beast...that' I think.'
Personally I wouldn't recommend the book.  
It does have a book two called TigerLily. 
   <----- don't like the cover
Right now they are both .99 cents on Kindle.


If you liked either of these books, I suggest you read:

Thrilling and seductive, PINELIGHT is a bittersweet love story submerged in a dark and beautiful world.

Thus far......

Well since (according to my Kindle) I am only 3% through my book I don't exactly have much to say. It is so far: dramatic, a tad bit strange, and not very descriptive. I like drama and strangeness, but I would appreciate if they were explained. A review is soon to come.

I have just finished two amazing books

Anathema (Causal Enchantment, #1)   &   Asylum (Causal Enchantment, #2) 

Anathema (Casual Enchantments #1)--->3 stars
Asylum (Casual Enchantments #2) ----> 4 stars

Cons: Main Character too innocent and oblivious....
Pros: Good concept, love Sophie, Caden is funny <3 , good at descriptions :)

Becca Fitzpatrick's Books

Becca Fitzpatrick is the author of the Hush, Hush saga. I love this series even though I have only read the first book in it; Hush, Hush.

Below are the four book in the series in order.

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) HUSH HUSH:  

Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

Buy here:(amazon) 

 Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2) CRESENDO
  The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush! Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

Buy Here: (amazon)

Silence (Hush, Hush, #3) SILENCE
 The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.

Buy Here: (amazon)

Finale (Hush, Hush, #4) FINALE
Fates unfurl in the gripping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Hush, Hush saga.Nora is more certain than ever that she is in love with Patch. Fallen angel or no, he is the one for her. Her heritage and destiny may mean they are fated to be enemies, but there is no turning her back on him. Now Nora and Patch must gather their strength to face one last, perilous trial. Old enemies return, new enemies are made, and a friend's ultimate betrayal threatens the peace Patch and Nora so desperately want. The battle lines are drawn—but which sides are they on? And in the end, are there some obstacles even love can't conquer?

Buy Here: (amazon) 

*Finale is not yet published (8.16.2012) it is to be published October 23, 2012 any orders placed in advanced will not be fulfilled until the book is officially released.
*All pictures original source is as said in "Disclaimer"

My Splurge on all of the books:

These books (based on the covers) look enticing and exciting. I love how all of the covers correspond with the other and don;t just go off on a limb and don't relate with the other at all. I have only read the first one and now own it. I gave it five stars :) The only reason I haven't read any of the others yet is because they don't have them in my local library yet -__- and they are ALWAYS out of the other two when I'm at Half Price Books.
So I definitely suggest you read this series and maybe you'll even finish them all before I even get the rest :)

If I Lie

If I Lie
By Corrine Jackson
Published by Simon Pulse on August the 28th of 2012

 A powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception.

Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.

Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.

My Splurge::::::

 5/5 stars
Ok so I pretty much adore this book. It has everything; secrets, tears, tragedy, love, fear, hurt, devastation, renewal, everlasting bonds and above all friendship.I know that Carey is gay and all and left her to fend for herself while he went off to war but I just couldn't bring myself to hate him. It was obvious that while he was not in love with Quinn(Sophie) he did lover her. The only thing I would change would be that Quinn and Blake end up together. I love Blake so much and he and Quinn were each others halves. Although Quinn did not see it at first, Blake saw it, Felt It, from the start. It was pure and beautiful and real. Not much is Real Love these days. I love how this book was a marines novel, it gave it a depth that a lot of other books don't usually have.
Even though Quinn didn't know she was lost, Blake found her, that is what kind of made their on of a kind, almost forbidden love all the more amazing and perfect. It was like through everything she had been through, Blake was always there.
I-I just can't describe how much I love this book. If only.....If only she didn't move into her mother's home before she went off to college and stayed with Blake everything would have been perfect. I mean, I get that whole 'You have to forgive to heal' and what-not, but Sophie can forgive from afar. The people at home (Blake, her dad, and Carey) need her more than her mom does.
This book is a military novel that will make me want a love like Sophie has the ability to possess forever. This book is truly one of a kind and will be treasured in my memory forever and always.

Catching Jordan
By Miranda Kenneally
Published December 1st 2011 by Sourcebooks Fire



What girl doesn't want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn't just surrounded by hot guys, though-she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys and that's just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.

But everything she's ever worked for is threatened when Ty Green moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing quarter back (QB), but he's also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan's feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart's on the line?
Catching Jordan 

I had been avidly begging my mom to drive me to the local library to pick up this book. I had been waiting for what seemed like forever -at least it was in my mind. I was not disappointed one slightest bit. I adore this book and would read it a million times over and over again if I owned it! 

For Jordan, it was the almost perfect life for her. She had the coolest friends (especially Sam) and fits perfectly into the team. I love how this is the place where she belongs. Her brother is a college football player, and her father is a famous one. Her brother loves that she does football, her dad hates it. 
 ~Spoiler Alert~
One of my favorite scenes in this book is when Ty Green first comes to look at her football team. Yes, HER football team. Shes the QB. When Ty comes she feels threatened because it looked like her would taker her hard earned spot on the team, but when her coach sends her to drill, she makes a mistake. She NEVER makes a mistake.  Oh, I forgot to mention, its also kind of love at first sight for her with Ty. Of course Ty doesn't know shes a girl. After all she is a girl on a guys football team. Football is also kinda of a 'guy' sport. So, anyway, coach calls her over to make sure shes okay or whatever, she takes her helmet off. That's when Ty sees her, I mean really, really sees her. Its like the whole BOOM & firework set off or whatever. Anywhooo, sparks fly. He ends up being her boyfriend. But he's kind of jealous, insanely protective and reminds her of her father. Now, let me tell you, it is just wrong when a boyfriend reminds you of your dad. Its just-no. 

So it turns that Sam (I love him by the way) has had a crush on her forever. Yah, I know, sigh worthy. 
But when she thinks shes falling for Sam more than Ty, Sam rejects her. And..and..and... that's all I'm gonna tell yah! (evil smile, evil laugh)

So I suggest you get this book immediately!!! 
Oh, and here's what I think of her choice in guys: Ty's a jerk, I LOVE Sam!!!

Summary for Stealing Parker
 Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She’s on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she’s made the all-star softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother’s scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her.

Now Parker wants a new life.

So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three? Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty?

But how far is too far before she loses herself completely?

Here is one more book by the author of Catching Jordan & Stealing Parker. Also a sorta sequal and not yet published.
