“After everything we’ve been through together, I hope you know by now that there will never be anyone else for me. "- Jay
Sensual Surrender is the second book in the Serafina: Sin City Series. Katie Reus outdid herself. I loved the first book in the series but I fell in love with this one, I don't even know what my reaction will be regarding the third book in the series.
Elle is Wyatt's personal assistant. Those who have read the first book already know that their relationship was off the charts from the very beginning. They both cared for each other but none did something for it, until Jay had a terrible accident.
Jay works for Wyatt as a member of his security team and for The Serafina. He knows what his job entails and he's confident he can succeed. But Jay has a weakness, Elle.
Ellie has a secret. A secret that could cost her much. She has a hidden past that she'd kept from Jay, one that refuses to be buried any longer. When her past resurfaces she does the only thing she knows that will keep Jay safe, she runs. Jay knows something's wrong and he's determined to find out but will he be able to live with it???
I loved, loved, loved this book. Jay was an incredible hero, strong, determined, caring and above everything else a protector. Jay and Ellie had great chemistry and there's was a lot of action. Elle felt that she didn't deserve Jay but little did she know that for Jay, Elle was everything. They were such a loving couple. I can't say I agreed with some of her actions but knowing that everything she did, she did it with Jay in mind was what made me like her.
Although, it is a pretty short story it has a nice flow, filled with action, mystery and intrigue. I couldn't read it fast enough. The only thing that I hated was the length. It was too short (well that's not entirely true but for me every good romance seems short) I loved sooooo much Elle and Jay that I didn't want to leave them so soon!!!
Ellie: Right now I’m wearing that gray skirt suit you like so much.
Jay: You look like a naughty librarian in that thing.
Ellie: That’s why you like it so much?
Jay: I thought you knew.
Ellie: Tonight I’ll wear just the skirt and jacket.
I totally recommend this book and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Note: Although, this book is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone.

"Maybe at the end of these seven days, you'll still say no. That doesn't mean it's over. I'm in this for the long run."
Oh my God!!!! Bitter Sweet Love is proof enought why J. Armentrout rocks.
Jasmine must choose. But should she listen her head or her heart???
After disappearing for three years, Dez returns determined to win Jaz 's heart back. Little does he know that Jaz never stopped loving him. Dez wants to continue as if nothing happend. As if he never disappeared without a word. Jasmine knows she can't trust him but she can't resist him as well. Jasmine is confused and has so many questions regarding Dez's reasons for leaving without a word. She will grant him the seven days as promised but if Dez chooses his secrets over her then Jaz knows what her choice will be, no matter how much that will hurt.
"I loved you the night you brought me pudding and stayed with me until I fell asleep. That was eleven years ago and my love for you has never faded. Not for one second."
I loved Bitter Sweet Love. Despite being a small novella, kind of an introduction to White Hot Kiss, it was perfect. In the incredible story of Dez and Jaz we also get the chance to meet some of the characters that will be starring in White Hot Kiss. We get to meet the amazing Layla and Zayne and as if that wasn't enough we get a preview of the next book, White Hot Kiss.
One of the reasons why I loved Bitter Sweet Love is becasue of the Gargoyles. Jennifer introduces us to an unbelievable fantastic world of the Gargoyles. Just let me say that gargoyles are such marvelous creatures. They are so different from the rest creatures of the night and I'm glad that we get this little background story in Bitter Sweet Love.
"I don't bite. Unless you want me to."
All in all, if you are a fan of J. Armentrout then you'll absolutly enjoy this. If you're not then it's time to become one. Jennifer is an impressive author and I highly recommend this book. It gripped my attention from page one tiil the end and left my anticiapting for the next book in the series.

by Rose J. Bell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"When I'm alone bad memories catch up to me. But when I'm near you, it feels like you protect me from the bad memories"
Under the moon is the first book I read by Rose J. Bell and I can say that it won't be the last.
Selena is a wonderfull girl who endures a horrible accident. After losing someone she loved more than anything she lives with the memories. And as if the memories weren't bad enough she has to witness her loss every day just by looking in the mirror and the scars left by the accident.
Selena blames herself for the accident and feels she doesn't deserve to be happy. After the accident she has to care for her mother and brother by working the night shift. She has no life left or so she thinks...
When Selena meets Keenan, she feels that she doesn't deserve to be happy with anyone. Especially, somone like Keenan.
But Keenan isn't who Selena thinks he is. Keenan has his own guilt. After being involved in a horrible accident that took away someone he cared for and loved, he blames himself for it. So, he tries to help others in order to feel he's worth something.
When Selena and Keenan meet, they both know that they have to acknowledge the past and let it go so they can move forward. But can they really?
I really, really liked this book. I loved Keenan though. He was selfless and all he wanted was to see Selena smile again. He wants to show her that she's beautiful and to help her accept the past and move on. What he doen't count though, is him falling for her. Their relationship was amazing. They both had to live with so much pain and that made them stronger.
Under the moon is such a touching and emotional story. The characters were great, the story was incredible and it had a nice flow.
I totally recommend it!!!

by Cynthia Eden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fav Quote:"He’d love her, adore her, for the rest of their lives."
Scream For Me is the third book in Cynthia Eden's For Me series.
Even more intriguing than the last one Scream For Me follows Kyle and Cadence's story.
FBI agents, Kyle Mckenzie and Cadence Hollow are called to the small town of Paradox, Alabama when a young woman is kidnapped after her car breaks down on a small isolated road. For Cadence this is another case but for Kyle this case hits too close to home. This case is similar to one that Kyle knows too well. How could he not, when his 18 year old sister went missing in the same way fifteen years ago in the same town, on the same road, on the same date. But is Kyle ready to face the truth?
Kyle and Cadence's story is dark, unpredictable and highly addictive! They will both do anything to find the killer but are they ready to bocome the prey?
I really really liked this book. It had lots of twists and turns, it was filled with mystery and intrigue, there were many suspects and most of all it had a hero who was determined to uncover the truth once and for all! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It captured me from the first page till the last. Needless to say that I finished it in one sitting.
What I loved most about the book was the romantic aspect of it. I liked how Kyle and Cadence's relastionship seemed to flourish. Despite Kyle being secretive at fist, he finaly opened up to Cadence. He confronted his painful past and he stopped blaming himself for what happend to his sister. Cadence on the other hand, was a mystery herself. We knew nothing about her life and the reason she chooses to stay alone. But Kyle is patient, he knows what he wants, her loyalty, her trust, her heart. He will have everything or nothing!
I highly recommend this book. It has sooooo many twists and turns that you will never guess who the killer really is. He's always there, always watching, hiding in the dark wating for the right minute to reveal himself.
