SYNOPSIS

Erika

I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.
His name is Michael Crist.
My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.
But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.
Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.
Because he’s finally noticed me.

Michael

Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.
Until my brother leaves for the military,  and I find Rika alone at college. In my city.
Unprotected.
The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.
We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

Holly mother!! This book was good!! Full of suspense, an interesting revenge plot that has you guessing what happened to get to this point all thru the story.

The Story starts with College student Erika “Rika” Fane , we can see right off the bat that she is a very wealthy and connected girl , that is desperate to escape the golden cage that her wealth pouts her on , but also , she’s trying to move on from the feelings attached to her past and what happened a few years back.

“Run all you want, Little Monster,” he said, sounding like a threat. “We’re faster.”

She think she’s running, she doesn’t know that she’s being lured to the thing that she is trying to forget.

Since infancy, she’s always been attracted to the older brother of the Crist family, but he never saw her or even care that she existed alongside his family. Except, there was a shared moment 3 years ago when she thought that might have been different.

“I didn’t feel so lost when he was around. It was the only time I didn’t feel lost.”

She has no idea that the events that happen one night 3 years ago brought her to this moment in her life and that a plot is developing against her for revenge.

Michael Crist is a dark and enigmatic man, and he’s not prepared to face the consequences of living so close to his enemy.

“I’ll look out for my little brother’s girlfriend and keep her nice and safe in the light of day and not violate the fuck out of her in the dark.”

He and his friend want revenge, and they want it now , and they have a plan in motion to make Rika pay for what was done to them 3 years ago .

...:

There’s a huge attraction that brews beneath the surface of this 2 characters and as thing develop the steam grows bigger and headier.

This book is told in Dual point (which I love) and this makes the plot, so much more entertaining.

And what can I tell you about the sex scenes … WOWZAAA!! They are scorching hot, all 4 horsemen have something to add to the table (some more than others, according to me!)

Let me tell you this , Miss Penelope Douglas writes effortless and unputdownable story’s.

“Does this hurt?” he asked. I brought my head up to look at him, but he wasn’t looking at me. He was looking at Michael. I twisted my head, seeing Michael’s mouth open a little, taking in quick, shallow breaths. “Yeah,” he said in a low voice, his eyes meeting mine. “But you like it,” I stated, feeling one of Kai’s hands trail up my belly between us. “You like the sting. It turns you on.

...:

The only reason I didn’t give this amazingly fun and hot story a 5 star rating is ….. Because I love so much the fall away series that I just can’t compare it (at least not yet)

AMAZING BOOK … YOU MUST MUST GO FOR IT

Opal- Origin and Opposition (Lux #3-4-5)by Jennifer L. Armentrout

lux 3,4 y5

BOOK: Opposition (Lux #5)by Jennifer L. Armentrout

MY RATING: 4 1/2 Stars

SYNOPSIS

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

I decide to do one review for book 3-4 and 5 , because it would get to repetitive to do one for each.

In book 3 we had Katy who is in an actual relationship with Daemons, they are very quite together , an d the witty banter is going strong , so is the steam factor , wich is still pretty mild but it’s getting warmer by the minute.

A slow, wry smile teased Daemon’s lips. “Simmer down, Kitten, before I have to get you a ball of yarn to play with.
Annoyance flared deep inside me. “Don’t start with me, jerk-face.

There are very sweet scenes in this book, because Daemon in wooing Katy…

He…he kisses like he’s dying of thirst, and I’m water.” I smacked my hands over my hot face. “I can’t believe I just said that out loud.” Lesa giggled. “Sounds like one of those romance books you read.” “It does.” I started giggling. “But, oh Lordie Lord, it’s true. I’m like a puddle of mush when he kisses me. It’s embarrassing. I’m so, like, ‘Thank you, can I have another?’ Sad.”

Dee is not the same anymore , but she is trying to get better ,and Katy is struggling with this issue.

Dawson is home but he’s very distant , he wants to get Bethany back , but Daemon knows that Daedalus is gunning for him and Katy’s powers.

In this  book there’s Blake again he appears and tries to convince everyone to help him get his Luxen friend, and all hell breaks loose…..

In the 4th Book “ORIGIN”, Katy got Taken by Daedalus  in Mount after Blake betrayed them,. She is in a new world alone and very scared, the things that they made her do are wrong in so many levels.

Daemon is going Crazy trying to get to Katy , he doesn’t care about anything but getting to where she is , and he will not rest untill he is with her and can see that she’s is safe again.

“Did you think you could stop me? I’ll burn the world down to save her.”

There’s only one thing I want.”

“And that is?”
“I want to see Kat.”
Nancy’s smile didn’t fade. “And what are you willing to do to accomplish that?”
“Anything,” I said without hesitation, and I meant it. “I will do anything, but I want to see Kat first and I want to see her now.”

He sacrifices his freedom to be with her, they get together under very stern circumstances , but the sarcasm is present as ever!!

I’ve been waiting a long time to run tests on someone like you, ” he said to Daemon, voice high-pitched.
Daemon arched a brow. “Another fanboy. I have them everywhere.”
I muttered, “Only you would see that as a good thing.”

“He hasn’t even eaten at Olive Garden, so I doubt he’s a connoisseur of hotels.” – Kat
“No Olive Garden? Man, we’ve got to get that boy some endless breadsticks and salad. Travesty.” – Daemon”

“Hey kitten, I could always give you a teaser. You bookish people love teasers, don’t you?”

They actually make a plan to scape , but many things happen , Blake dies by Katy’s hand ( wich kinds of screwed with her mind) and many character are introduced ..especially Archer one of the Origins tha Daedalus creted !! He was a great character to meet , and hell’ be very important in this book so is luc…

lux

There’s a lot more action , and City of Las Vegas is very important in the story…..

Then we Jump to book 5 “OPOSSITION” the last book of the Saga , wich starts where Origins ends, with the arrival of the Luxen’s.

“Apparently, there was even a meme created already. The incredibly photogenic glowing-alien meme.”

After the Luxen arrived on earth the war for survival begins, Andrew is dead, Ash is dead , Mathew betrayed them and after the Vegas disaster they need to stay low.

Everything is very messed up , but the only thing that is certain is the love that Daemon has for Katy and vice versa, their love is stronger than anything , is it not?

But something Happens and Daemon , Dee and Dawson go to the Luxen leaving the other wondering about their loyalty.
eventually they get reunited but Damon is very strange towards Katy so she thinks they got to him , but their love is what keep them away from his head.

“Get out of my head.” “I can’t help it,” Archer replied from where he sat on the couch. “You’re broadcasting your thoughts so damn loudly I feel like I need to go sit in the corner and start rocking, whispering Daemon’s name over and over again.”

There are Origins ans Luxen working together, and there’s this bitchy character that wants in to Daemon’s pant’s

“Yes,” she purred. “I really think you can do better. Lots better.” As she spoke, she trailed a red-painted finger down the center of his chest, over his abdomen, heading straight for the button on his jeans. And oh, hell to the no. “Get your hands off him.” Sadi’s head snapped in my direction. “Excuse me?” “I don’t think I stuttered.”

But eventually Daemond makes Katy understand the delicate situations there in…

“ Kat.” He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. “I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I … burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world— in any world— would be stronger than my love for you?”

“Daemon was okay. He was himself, and dammit, together we could face anything. We would because we had to.” 

After everything that happens they must convince an old enemy to help them with the Luxen situation, wich is very difficult to do.Ireally dont want to say anymore , because i have said too much of the plot already and people should enjoy it without spoilers.

This book did not disappoint , it was full of action , drama , and so much swoon and the steamyness  that im having a hard time letting go. I laugh so much with this series, Katy was so hilarious, and Daemons so charming and conceded,

im really going to miss them, if you havent read this one you should do it !!! it’s amazingly god, they are unforgettable.

Why did it took me so long? … “OBSIDIAN” by Jennifer L. Armentrout ( Lux #1)

Book: “OBSIDIAN” by Jennifer L. Armentrout ( Lux #1)

My Rating: 4 of 5  great stars!!

SYNOPSIS

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is

My Thoughts about it 

After loosing her father ,Katy a girl from Florida moves with her mother to a small town in West Virginia. Her mother pushes her to try to make some new friends , so she goes to the neighbours to ask for directions to the nearest store

there she meet the lovely  Dee and the not so lovely but very swoon worthy, tall , dark , and very very handsome Daemon Black, who is very keen on keeping  Katy away from his sister.

After a conversation gone wrong she realizes he’s as beautiful as he is arrogant and full of himself

“He was probably the hottest guy I’d ever seen in real life, and he was a total douche. Go figure.”

After Katy suffers a terrible attack and Daemon comes to her rescue , she will find out what is the reason for his attitude and nothing will ever be the same for her.

I  must say that I really like this one , even do it´s a lot more wholesome than my usual reads.

it was very fun , it got me hooked right away and the characters where entertaining to read … I love love love Daemon     (he was kind of a douche at first and in that horrible the cafeteria scene I feel so bad for Katy) I JUST WANTED TO PUNCH HIM … but it gets better.

He is super mega HOT… if i had a neighbour like that, i would totally stalk him… like really…
anyway, Kat is pretty great, she is very funny , sarcastic and witty . She likes Daemon A LOT but she does not let him walk all over her wich was what made me love her … the story is very entertaining , it was super fun for me to read, the time just flew by and I cant wait to start on the second book

At first I thought these would be  like an alien version of Twilight , wich kind of put me of it for a while , but it’s not .

I very much recommend it it´s an easy fun read and it will make time fly by.

At least it did for me …
