Title: Blame it on Texas (Hotter in Texas #2)
Author: Christie Craig

Zoe Adams has always been content with her quiet nights at home, watching TV alone-until her life turns into a real-life episode of Unsolved Mystery Hunters. The story of a kidnapped girl triggers unexplained memories, and Zoe is dead-set on figuring out why. Her search leads her to one of the Lone Star State's richest families-and to sexy PI Tyler Lopez.

Tyler has sworn off women, especially redheads with killer curves who poke their noses into his clients' private lives. Still, he can't deny the attraction any more than he can deny that some of Zoe's crazy story makes sense. But when she becomes a hit man's target, this cold case starts heating up. Suddenly, Tyler will do anything to protect Zoe-even risk his heart.

Review: Crossroads by J.J. Bonds

 Title: Crossroads (Crossroads Academy #1)
Author: J.J. Bonds
Source: Received through blog tour in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis:

Review:





Crossroads is the first book in the Crossroads Academy series by J.J. Bonds. It centers around a teenage girl named Katia, who enrolls at the private vampire academy. Katia is mysterious, which keeps the rumor mill flowing at the school. Deaths start happening in the nearby town, and Katia finds out that she's not the only one keeping secrets.

I feel like there isn't a whole lot to say about this book without giving anything away. The whole book is a mystery to the reader, which is both frustrating and intriguing at the same time. You really don't find out anything until the end. You don't know anything about Katia through most of the book. It keeps you on your toes though because you are waiting in anticipation for the little hints to start coming out.

Now, I'll have to admit that I did not like Katia at first. She was not a likeable person because she had this wall put up around her. She knew it was extremely important that nobody found out anything about her, so she tried to steer clear of developing friendships. She grew on me though. The walls slowly came down and you were able to see more of her. She has a lot of courage and willpower. She trains hard for weeks to be able to defend herself. But from what?

There was just a tad bit of romance involved. The love interest in this book is Nic, who is a great guy. His friends leave a lot to be desired though. They are awful and treat Katia like crap. Because of this, she keeps pushing Nic away. He doesn't give up so easily though, and Katia slowly (and I mean slowly) lets her guard down. I really hope to see more of this blossoming relationship in the next book. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading young adult paranormal books.

Chosen at Nightfall cover reveal

Here is the brand new cover for book #5 in the Shadow Falls series, Chosen at Nightfall. Isn't it gorgeous? I just love the colors and the tree limbs framing the cover.


Haven't read this series yet? It's a wonderful YA series that I highly recommend! Here is a little about the first book in the series:

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

Review: Don't Mess with Texas by Christie Craig

 Title: Don't Mess with Texas (Hotter In Texas #1)
Author: Christie Craig
Source: Received from author in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis:

Nikki Hunt thought her night couldn't get worse when her no-good, cheating ex ditched her at dinner, sticking her with the bill. Then she found his body stuffed in the trunk of her car and lost her two-hundred-dollar meal all over his three-thousand-dollar suit. Now not only is Nikki nearly broke, she's a murder suspect.

Former cop turned PI, Dallas O'Connor knows what it's like to be unjustly accused. But one look at the sexy-though skittish-suspect tells him she couldn't hurt anyone. The lead detective, Dallas's own brother, has the wrong woman and Dallas hopes a little late-night "undercover" work will help him prove it . . .




Review:





Don't Mess with Texas is the first book in the Hotter in Texas series by Christie Craig. There is nothing paranormal about this book – which is the type of book that I normally read. It's just a good romantic mystery. The heroine of the book, Nikki, is blamed for the murder of her ex-husband. Private Investigator, Dallas, knows what it's like to be wrongly accused so he does all that he can to help Nikki's case.

The characterization in this book is great. There are several background characters that I enjoyed reading about. I'll admit that I got a little confused in the beginning. The book swaps points of view. We read about the POV from 4 different people. There are also a lot of characters to try to keep straight. I really enjoyed Tony's story though (who is Dallas' brother). Toward the second half of the book, I was just as intrigued by Tony and LeAnn's story as I was Dallas and Nikki's.

The main two characters, Dallas and Nikki, have great chemistry. Their relationship didn't move too fast though. Nikki's life was a mess, and Dallas knew that he shouldn't get involved with a client. Over time they just couldn't resist each other though. Their relationship was very sweet.

I loved the humor in this book. There are a lot of suspenseful scenes, but the humor keeps it just light-hearted enough so you don't dwell on the fact that Nikki could be facing prison time. Though there are a lot of laughs, there are also some tearful moments as well. There is never a dull moment. Between the humor, romance, mystery, and suspense, you'll have a hard time putting this book down. I know I did. I'm really looking forward to reading Tyler's story next!

My name is Maggie Cooper and I’m not your average seventeen year old. I just happen to be the only one my age that can expertly wield an ax like my life depends on it. Basically it kind of does, depend on my life expectancy, but that’s just because of all the dead that try to eat my face off.

Maggie is going to have to dig deep to find an inner strength she didn't know she even had.

If she wants to survive.

The clock is ticking and soon the country will be wiped out. Sometimes to move forward you have to go back, but with the lives of others on the line, will they react in time to survive?

How will you survive if the dead walked in all directions and you had no where to turn?

I’ve been waiting years to replace the last drummer. Just when it’s looking good for me, Leo Fuller shows up, and this bad boy genie’ s after more than just my drummer gig.

Male genies are dangerous, volatile, bad-boy types, and I’m finding him way too attractive. If we’re caught together, we could both lose our powers and be banished to the other realm. I know helping Leo will be a really bad idea. What I don’t know is why I’m doing it anyway.

Author: C.A. Kunz

Cat Colvin
Average Teenager?
Or Something Else Entirely?

Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager.

High school can definitely be challenging, and for Cat it’s no different. This is especially true when she’s faced with the daunting task of trying to hide her budding Childe traits as they begin to reveal themselves at the most inopportune times. To make matters worse, her family is oddly dead set against Ryan, the boy she grows to like. But everyone has their secrets: is Ryan really what he seems to be, and what is Cat’s family not telling her?

The Childe is the first book in this coming-of-age fantasy series which follows Cat's life through the twists and turns toward finding out whom and what she really is. Come and take the plunge with Cat into a world filled with mystery, biting humor, and the paranormal.

I used to murder people for money, but these days it’s more of a survival technique.

Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town.

Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power. Salina also has an intimate history with my lover, Owen Grayson, and now that she’s back in town, she thinks he’s hers for the taking.

Salina’s playing a mysterious game that involves a shady local casino owner with a surprising connection to Owen. But they call me the Spider for a reason. I’m going to untangle her deadly scheme, even if it leaves my love affair hanging by a thread.
