IMMORTAL NIGHTS – A Lynsay Sands Reviw

**ARC received from Edelweiss for an honest review**

The Argeneau Series was where my romance reading really began. (Lynsay Sands and Katie MacAlister were my first obsessions!) Lynsay Sands has one of the greatest explanations for vampirism (or immortals in this case) that I have ever come across and I love telling fellow romance readers about her! I got to read Dante’s and Tomasso’s books back to back and Tomasso may be my favorite of the twins.

Tomasso is held captive in a cargo hold by an evil doctor/scientist’s crazy henchmen. Little do they know that Abigail is in the back hiding from them as well after they’ve hired her best friend, Jet, on an “emergency” flight.

We go from airplane, to stranded on an island, to island villas as Abigail and Tomasso repeatedly have to rescue one another. Tomasso’s inner dialogue was so passionate about Abigail and her ability to stay calm under pressure and her ingenuity to survive. I love seeing the male character in novels become dependent not the female character and admire her for it; rather than admonish her for thinking him weak.

Abigail struggles throughout most of the book with waking up in different locations. If you don’t read the Argeneau Series that won’t make sense to you. But if you do..hooo boy you know why! ….Ok non-readers I’ll let you in on a secret. In Sands’ world, the immortals have one true life mate that they cannot control or read their mind. This makes them a perfect pair (among other things that I won’t go into detail about). One of the benefits of life mates however is shared pleasure. That’s right…they can feel one another’s pleasure. And when it gets to the breaking point? They pass out from it! Trust me this makes for some hilarious scenes. When you go to read just pay attention to blood bags….its one of the best scenes in the book.

Abigail and Tomasso also discover how similar the two of them are when it comes time for Tomasso to reveal what he truly is; immortal. Abigail’s years of studying to become a doctor lead her to figuring out, mostly, how Tomasso’s family are all immortal and all the side effects it causes. Not only are both of them strong and supportive of one another; they both realize that the other is interested in science and how things work. Once again the life mate bond is reinforced.

As usual others from the Argeneau clan enter the picture near the end of our story; including the newly life-mated Dante and Mary (also a great story!). As always Lucian and Marguerite have their appearances. And it seems the match maker Marguerite has a plan for Jet…… can’t wait to see what happens in the future!

Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!

RELEASE DATE: 9/27

New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn invites readers to Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living and the lake never gives up her dead…

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on Crescent Lake in the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I’m Kerris Fellwater, and I’m a spirit shaman. It’s my responsibility to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people—and secrets—don’t always stay buried.

My best friend Peggin finds herself under a curse after she is almost taken by the Lady of the Lake, and the Unliving are determined to drag her back to the hungry waters. As Bryan—my guardian and mate—and I work to break the hex, we uncover a dark and violent mystery from the past. One the Hounds of Cú Chulainn will do anything to guard—even if they must summon a legion of the dead to destroy Whisper Hollow.

WITH EVERY BREATH – A Maya Banks Review

“Sometimes the person who can save us, is the one we least expect.”

**ARC received from Edelweiss for an honest review**

Ladies and Gents, Maya Banks knocks it out AGAIN! With Every Breath is her latest in the Slow Burn Series and does it go down smooth.
Eliza Cummings has been one of the boys for years working for Devereaux Security Services and running from a past she knew would haunt her forever. With a secret no one knows, not even her most trusted partner, Eliza has closed herself off from love and letting the right person in to her heart. So why does her latest enemy seem to be working his way in to her closet of skeletons? Especially right when he past seems to be creeping in and threatening the life she’s built
Wade Sterling has never claimed to be anyone but himself and a feisty blonde is no match for his sarcastic tongue. He’s entertained Eliza and her fool hardiness for some time. But when she runs off on a suicide mission after saying goodbye to her brothers in arms, he knows there’s only one man can bring her back from the brink: the one who loves her.

***Spoilers below***

As always, Maya Banks has made me fall in LOVE with her characters. Eliza is not only headstrong and stubborn, her team knows she can back it up and I love seeing that in a female character; especially one that has such a roller coaster of self-discovery as Eliza Cummings. Finally learning that her past is based in such misery made me understand why Eliza is so closed off. Having a man manipulate your mind at the age of 16 and warp you into confusing obsession and love with control and oppression would make any person want to swear off human connection.
Wade is strong enough to see the changes happening in Eliza even if their interactions up until now had been schoolyard bullying and sarcastic barbs thrown at one another. Both a deflection from how they felt about one another. Two strong, level-headed, and strong minded people would seem catastrophic in a relationship but Wade understands Eliza’s need to be iron-willed. Yes, he wants to protect her from the ugly past that she’s run back to erase, but he knows that taking that revenge or justice (however you see it) away from her would results in her safety, yes. But she’s also so determined to avenge the women who died (which she thinks is her fault) that she would weasel her way out and get back to her task, no matter what the ones that love her said if they tried to hold her back.
Eliza’s journey of abandonment to realization is braced by Wade’s own determination to show her that she means the world to him. So when she falls, stumbles, crashes under the weight of realizing that she truly has a family, brothers and sister, who love her, she can stand firm. Wade is one of the most strong-willed male characters I’ve read in a long time. He not only has the strength to be there for Eliza and step back when she needs to be the strong one, he never once crosses the boundary and seems to always know exactly what Eliza needs to survive.

I cannot WAIT for more the Slow Burn series (or any new Maya Banks material in general)!!

Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!

BURN DOWN THE NIGHT – An M. O’Keefe Review

“Sometimes bad people do good things.”

**ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Joan is not your typical girl. The ex-stripper and all around wild child is about to put her crazy antics to good use. When she escapes a cultist leader’s drug ring and has to leave her sister behind in his clutches, she does what she can to get her sister back. Trap the man in a strip club and bomb the place until she gets her way.

That is until Max steps in where he shouldn’t. Joan shared one hard, sexy look with him while onstage months ago and hasn’t gotten him out of her mind since. But he wasn’t supposed to be here, he wasn’t supposed to get hurt. So when he does? What else is a girl to do but to kidnap him and use his connections to get her sister back.

Max is one crazy, sexy bad guy. The beard, that tattoos, oh and not to mention a biker club President who’s struggling to go straight. Being kidnapped by the woman he’s had his eye on and hands off of for the past few months? NOT part of the plan; neither was getting shot, or mixed up in her crazy, suicidal plan to get her sister back from a psycho drug lord. But damn if Max can’t help the chemistry that sizzles between them and use it to his advantage to escape.

This story was on such a highly charged buzz the whole time. You’ve got two people with lethal amounts of sexual tension between them that fuels every moment. From gunshot wounds and explosives to depressive family pasts and the inability to keep a lid on libidos, Joan and Max are two characters MADE for one another. I loved every minute and being able to see from each of their point of views. Being the reader you could see how similar Max and Joan both thought about themselves and one another. I wanted to scream “JUST KISS ALREADY!” the whole time! Exploring their relationship while trying to figure out how Joan was going to save her sister kept the pace moving along and I can’t wait for more of these books!

Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!
