Captive (Entwined Fates #1) by Trista Ann Michaels


Aliens? Attacking Earth?

Her home is being destroyed. Her friends killed. Her freedom taken away. Escape from the man or alien responsible is the only choice she has but deep down, it’s the last thing Mikayla truly wants and she hates herself for it. Falling in love with her captor is not an option, despite how seductive he is. He might get her body, but she refuses to give him what he truly wanted…her soul.

How the hell has Sidious been talked into this and more importantly, how the hell is he going to get out of it?

The last thing he needs while working as a mole for the rebel forces is another complication, no matter how enticing a package. But the second Mikayla opens her sarcastic mouth, he can’t resist putting her in her place. Seducing her’s going be the most fun he’s had in years. Unfortunately, someone is onto his secret and time is running out…for both Sidious and his captive.

Even though I wasn’t in love with this book I did enjoy it. This is one of those books that you can’t necessarily put your finger on why you didn’t love it because there was nothing that stood out that was horrible.  Continue reading

My Little Obsession With Laurann Dohner’s Books

I have been on a Laurann Dohner binge. I’m not even kidding you guys. I’m sure it’s not healthy to binge this many books by one author in such a short amount of time. I’ve just been reading one book after another so fast that I don’t even have time to write about how amazing they are. I just rush to get my hands on the next book in the series because I already know I’m going to love it.

Rush (Breathless #1) by Maya Banks

16033902

I can’t be the only one that recently saw Fifty Shades Darker and craved a book similar to it. I haven’t read a BDSM book in forever. If you’ve been following my posts you’ll know that I’ve lately been obsessed with aliens and any story that relates to space and other worlds. Even amidst my current obsession, once I saw the new 50 Shades movie I had to pick up a similar book and dive back into this world.  Continue reading

Fallen Crest High (book 1 of Fallen Crest High) by Tijan


Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend her school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now Samantha has to live with them. The problem is that she doesn’t care at all: about them, about her friends, about her cheating boyfriend, or even about her parent’s divorce. But maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe change is a good thing.

I’m going to try my hardest not to rant to hard but I’m so frustrated with this book. I asked myself so many times “why why why why why” about a million times. Im just going to list off the things that annoyed me (: (beware spoilers)

1. What mother would just tell her daughter basically “Sorry but you can’t see your father anymore, I packed all my stuff already, pack yours we are leaving.” And she was hysterical in the beginning of the book like she was the one wronged when she was the one that caused all of this shit. The mom was the one that cheated and was being a bitch about the entire situation. There were multiple times I wouldn’t have minded smacking some sense into this woman.

2. The fact that these kids in high school are so cliquey just makes me want to roll my eyes into oblivion. Like ?? Real life isn’t like that. Sure there might be a popular group but people won’t make fools of themselves trying to be friends with them and become best friends with the people they hate in order to feel like they are in the in crowd. Most of the people in this book were so absorbed with trying to be in the “Elite” group, they just looked ridiculous and it’s so unbelievable because trust me high school is not like that not even the private school ones.

3. The Kades acted like they were 10 years older than they were and were so disrespectful. I understand that if you are disrespected you should most definetly stand up for yourself but these brothers would be straight up assholes to not only people their own age but to adults as well. I feel like the author wanted them to stand out and look cool against the high school students that were so easily conformable but come on. Making them disrespectful assholes does not make them cool.

4. I understood Sam’s whole thing was to not care about anything but she was such a coward. She would never stand up for her friends, especially Becky, who after everyone left her decided to be her friend. People would be outright mean to Becky in front of Sam and Sam would just sit there giving off her “I don’t care about anything” vibe. OH BUT WAIT she got into a fist fight when she was drunk standing up for a girl she didn’t even know? Eye roll. eye roll. eye roll.

5. I don’t really understand the hatred towards Adam. Maybe I fell asleep a little while reading because I don’t really get why everyone hated him. Mason and Logan didn’t like him because they knew Adam had feelings for Sam, which to be honest I don’t know why he did. Adam stood up to the Kade brothers for being assholes which should’ve been a good thing??

6. I can’t stand Sam. I especially hated her when Mason went off on her dad in the parking lot. He was a straight up jackass and was rude and Sam had said how she saw her dad look so hurt yet she turned her back on him and got into the car with Mason. Like girl that’s the man that raised you and has loved you and you are letting you new boo thang disrespect him so much and not once say anything. She would hide behind Mason while Logan and him would bully either her mom or her dad. Sam needed more of a backbone and Mason and Logan needed to calm their asses.

7. What the hell happened at the end of this book. I’m genuinely confused. It legit just ended with no problem solved at all and with one of the “Elite’s” walking out of Logan’s room in the hotel with his tshirt on, obviously she had just stayed the night and bumped uglies with Logan but it was just so random. Like she walked out of the room went by his side and that was that. That’s how it ended. Like ?? I went through all of that to end up here. Nowhere. 

I could honestly go on and on picking out different things from this book that I disliked but I need some sleep because for some reason I stayed up all night reading this book hoping that the ending would make up for the rest of the book and was sorely disappointed. I read so many good reviews so I was super excited but I was really let down on this one. Hopefully if you’ve read this book or are planning on reading it you like it so much more than me. I always say that I hope someone has a better experience with books even if I hate the book because everyone has different viewpoints and opinions so I hope you enjoy this book even if I didn’t!









Soul of Flame (book 4 of Imdalind) by Rebecca Ethington


The Time for the final battle has come.

Edmund’s armies have surrounded the Rioseco Abbey, trapping the few survivors inside. The sight that Ilyan was given a thousand years ago is about to come to pass.

If only Joclyn was able to fight.

Joclyn is tormented by the hallucinations that Cail’s mind has left her with, her magic an uncontrollable torrent that even Ilyan cannot control. Her moments of lucidity are broken by fears of dripping pipes and bleeding walls, and a desire to kill Ryland that she is having trouble trying to ignore.

The sight has shown her power, shown her success, but it has also shown her death – The end of her life something she is not quite willing to give up on yet.

Even past her death, the sight has shown her love, and that love may be the only key to her sanity, to her strength, and to Edmund’s death.

That love may stand in her way, and a single choice may tip the scales and secure their future, or destroy their fate.

Just finished the fourth book a little bit ago and I’m not sure what exactly to say. I love this series. I feel like I reiterate myself every two seconds when I’m writing about the books in this series but it’s so great. There’s never a dull moment in this series.



This book definitely keeps you on your toes especially because, as we’ve seen in the previous books, these visions that the Drak’s get don’t change. They’ve said it from the beginning that once a vision has passed that is going to happen and there’s no way out of it. So I’m sitting here like HOW IN THE HELL IS THIS GOING TO END. I mean we get visions of how it’s suppose to end but it’s an ending no one wants let alone is excited for so ??

Joclyn gets better in this book but I wish she was more of a strong badass warrior. Which is unreasonable especially how in the first book when she thought she was just a human and she would hide in her hoodies and was basically too scared to make friends. We get glimpses of her badassery here and there and I love it. I love badass Joclyn!

I feel like the author really tries to make everyones emotions seem realistic in their situation. She doesn’t try to be unreasonable especially after what everyone in this book has been through. I really like that because then you’re not sitting there thinking that how they act is unrealistic. 

I’ve obviously read too my adult books and forgot how innocent YA books can be. Joclyn and Ilyan have only kissed. That’s it. Not even a little touch anywhere lower than their waist. I remember one instance in this book Wyn asked Joclyn how well of a kisser Ilyan was and to give her details and I’m just sitting there like ??? Details on a kiss? I would’ve asked for juicer info about the couple. Especially when Wyn is hundreds of years old, she’s obviously not innocent so for her to ask about juicy details about a kiss, I’m just like “I’m done!” And the way Joclyn would blush and get so embarrassed about a kiss whenever it was brought up or they were caught kissing I’m like “girl calm down you chillin”. Also, since Ilyan is about a thousand years old you’d think he’d want to get a little more freaky with Joclyn the night before the battle but nope they are both so innocent. 

I’m not sure what else to say about this book, it starts off right where it ended in the last book and is entertaining and intriguing throughout the book. I’m excited/sad that the next book in the series is supposedly the end. 


Are any of you so used to new adult and other genres other than YA and are not used to such a PG couple? Gotta keep reminding myself it’s YA.

“And if you stumble? I will be here to pick you up, to help you bring beauty back to the world.”

Scorched Treachery (book 3 of Imdalind) by Rebecca Ethington


While Joclyn is trapped in the tormenting hell of Cail’s mind, the battle around her only continues to grow and spread.
*
Edmund has infiltrated the underground hallways of Prague, guiding the massacre that would end the lives of the last of the great magical race. In her attempts to stop him, Wynifred has been captured and her magic restrained. Chained up in the ancient dungeons of Prague, her fate is left in the hands of her father, who has tried to kill her before. 
With Ryland’s screams and Sain’s fragmented sights as her only company, Wyn must rely on something that has been hidden deep inside of her for centuries to help them break free.
*
Ilyan’s whole life has been building up to one purpose. Protect the Silnỳ. He knows what he must do, and he has no doubt in his ability to do so. 
But when his father’s magic removes Joclyn’s mind from her body, he is left protecting the shell of the one person he loves. Desperate to find a way to break her free of her prison, he makes a choice. And that one choice changes everything.
Now, Ilyan finds himself bound to Joclyn in a way that he never knew to be possible. 
They say that blood is thicker than water, but Black Water burns, and Ilyan’s heart may not be strong enough to keep it pumping through his veins and give the girl he loves back into his brother’s care.
Even if he can, it may not be safe to do so.

Well there I go again finishing this series in a day. What can I say Rebecca Ethington has be ADDICTED TO THIS SERIES!!



I have a love hate relationship with this book. I love it because the story line and characters of this entire series is amazing and I can’t see how someone would not love it but I hate it because I was expecting the point of view of Joclyn, since that was the point of view I read in the first two books. Not that it wasn’t cool to see through others eyes but from the beginning of the book until the last couple of chapters at the end it was a huge rewind. They went back to retell the stories from Wyn’s and Ilyan’s point of views. I kept expecting to hear from Joclyn but it wasn’t until the last couple of chapters when everything was back from where we left off in the second book.

Don’t get me wrong I still love this book and am excited to see what’s next I was upset that the book didn’t immediately pick up where the second book did. However, don’t let this discourage you from reading this book! You find out a LOT of information through Ilyan and Wyn’s point of views. Like in this first two books, you get taken on an emotional rollercoaster. I CRIED DURING THIS BOOK and felt like my heart was breaking a few times for these characters.

I can’t wait to see what happens next! I love how this series keeps me guessing and anticipating what is going to happen. I seriously recommend this series if you love to be kept on the edge of your seat and if you want to fall in love with some amazingly developed characters.


“She is not mine. I love her more than I have any other. I love her enough that I would rather see her happy than in my possession. My time will come.”

“I would do anything to protect her, to help her, to let her become what she wanted and needed to be. I would give her my heart, if that were required. She had it until it beat its last.” 

Eyes of Ember (book 2 of Imdalind) by Rebecca Ethington

Joclyn is in hiding, hunted by the man she still desperately loves. Ryland is gone, his mind erased, no memory of Joclyn remains. But, Joclyn’s heart desperately begs her to hold out hope. While, in reality the black eyed monster that possesses him, attempts to kill her over and over.

If it wasn’t for Ilyan, Joclyn would be dead by now. 

Ilyan. The man who once stalked her, is now Joclyn’s protector, the only thing she has left. He protects Joclyn from the men who seek to end her life, and while she is haunted by dreams where Ryland begs her to break the bond between them. 

Ilyan is there. Always there.

Ilyan trains and prepares her, teaching her everything she needs to know in the hope that one day she can avenge Ryland, if not protect herself from him.

And then there is her father.

The man who has never been there, is suddenly responsible for everything. And who he is has made Joclyn into something she never wanted to be.

The Silnỳ.

I’M SO FULL OF EMOTIONS! I swear I can feel 10 million different emotions going through me right now. This book literally pulls you through every single emotion and it’s amazing.


I love how everything you think you know is most likely wrong in some way. I like to think I’m pretty good at predicting the outcome of situations in books but this one whatever I think will happen usually doesn’t or something else happens and you’re kind of left there like “Oh shit, what just happened… oh goodness”. AND I LOVE IT. I love having to guess and this book keeps me on my toes!

I do have to say, Joclyn screams and cries a lot during this book, not that it’s unreasonable with what she goes through throughout the entire book but I think because I read this whole book in one sitting I noticed it a bunch. Maybe that’s just me but it was something that every time it happened it stood out to me a little.

In this book you never know who to root for which is another thing I love because again, it keeps you guessing and keeps you thinking what the hell is about to happen. I love the suspense and mystery of it all. This series just keeps getting better and better I can’t wait to read more!

“Bred to die, born to fight, raised to be broken, and always the cause of pain for those I cared about most in the world.”
