Evil poisons everyone. Period. Our mouths water when we sink our teeth into what we have always craved. Surrendering to our desires by biting off delectable piece of the forbidden fruit is nothing more than a meager confession: Poison tastes sinfully sweet,”—Confessions of the Big Apple Debutante, by blogger Miss Snow White.


My Review

Snow White Lies by Sarah J. Pepper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review

Wow! Sarah has done it again! I have always loved the darkness of a Grimm fairytale but what Sarah brings to the story in her dark and twisted imaginings is so much more! Here we have dwarfs that are not Snows allies but the Queens pawns and a Huntsman whose sanity is not his own.

While a big Fan of the original Snow white tale I was very excited to read this one. I even named my daughter after the original snow (Lilyanna) and Sarah for sure did not disappoint! I for sure hope my daughter doesn't turn out anything like Sarah's version however she was perfect for the book.

The book had none stop action and was a edge of your seat page turner, the seven were a formidable force and I loved how Sarah turned 7 harmless dwarfs into such men to be feared. I for sure wouldn't want to meet them on the street or anywhere for that matter...lol... the huntsmen was different he was sexy and dangerous and you never knew if he was going to kiss you or kill you. It lent an aura of anticipation and suspense to the book.

Sarah is a mad genius when it comes to writing and the fairytale angle is a rare talent for her. Her collection of fairytale pieces is totally brilliant and I love them all! if you haven't gotten yours make sure you get yours today! Death of the Mad Hatter, Locks: Rapunzel Unleashed and now Snow White lies!

I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?

WW4BB Presents: A Review of Clash of Legends by Joleene Naylor

31 Mar 2015.



The explosive seventh installment in the Amaranthine series brings blood, ruin, despair, and hope, for even in the darkest night there is still a moon.


After the battle in Indonesia. Katelina wakes in Samael’s domain. Though her memories are tattered, she knows someone is missing: Jorick.


Her vampire lover gathers an army to save her from the ancient, but his master Malick interferes. For five hundred years Malick has manipulated and ruined Jorick’s life. When he leaves Katelina broken and bleeding in the bowels of his oasis, it’s the final straw.


While Malick sets up his glorious war with a living legend, Jorick plans the ultimate taboo: to kill his master. He’s tried before and failed. Will this be different, or will he and Katelina be crushed in the carnage of a greater battle, between two whose blood goes back millennia?
 



My Review




Clash of Legends by Joleene Naylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review

Magnificent and breathtaking! I couldn't put it down! Naylor's creative genius knows no bounds! this book was completely incredible! and the battles amazing!

Katelina's change in this one is incredible! she is so different! yet so much the same..lol...I hate to say to much without giving it all away. Joleen twisted it in such a way that no one saw it coming. I so can't wait to see what is in store for her character in the next book as well as for Micah.

The introduction of the newish character Xandria sets a different stage to the book and sets a different feel to it all now with Katelina's character. I think it will be interesting to see how it will all unfold and to see if she will be a trustworthy addition to the team.

The ending was totally epic! and I have to give Joleen kudos for it! I nearly fell out of my seat when I read it..lol... I am totally dieing to read the next book already! this series is the best!!!!!

WW4BB Presents: A Review of Children of Shadows by Joleene Naylor



The Children of Shadows, a vampire cult not seen for hundreds of years, resurfaces to wage war on the vampire guilds. Led by a familiar face, the cult wreaks havoc while Katelina and Jorick are trapped in Munich’s stronghold. Ume, a mysterious vampiress, who claims to know Verchiel, offers the help of her secret organization. But how are she and Verchiel connected, and can they trust her?

As mysteries are solved, new ones appear. Why have the Children of Shadows returned, and is it really a former ally that leads them, or a look-alike? Jorick and Katelina will have to team up with past companions and new allies if they want to find out the truth.

Legends rise and secrets are revealed in a world where vampires walk, drenched in blood and shadows.
 



My Review



Children of Shadows by Joleene Naylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review

I am a HUGE fan of Joleen's work and an BIG fan of this series! I have been reading it from the start and am in love with all the characters and love where Joleen has been taking it. Children of the Shadows was magnificent! I loved this one! Verchiel is my all time fav of the characters and I loved getting to know more about him and his past in this one.

Katelina and Jorick are the ultimate couple and nothing ever gets them down! threw thick and thin, battle after battle they always find each other and they always make it through and I love that about them! Jorick doesn't treat Katelina like a snack or pet or lowly human either like the rest of the vampire populous which gets him huge points.

Samael, Malick, the Black Vigil, and the Children of the Shadows are all big key players in the this one. Who to trust to to fight next and who can help are up in the air. Naylor keeps up all on the edge of our seats though the whole thing wondering what will she throw at us next?..lol

This epic and creative tale is one you defiantly don't want to miss out on! Naylor is a creative and butt kicking genius! I can't wait to see what comes next!

WW4BB & GCR Presents: A Book Highlight of TOUCH ME by Skye Malone

24 Mar 2015.

Title: Touch Me #1
Series: Touch Me
Author: Skye Malone
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Wildflower Isle
Publication Date: February 18, 2015
ISBN: 978-1-940617-30-5
Cover Designer: Karri Klawiter



Caitlin Faire was only expecting a simple night out to celebrate her best friend’s twenty-first birthday. But enter one gorgeous and mysterious guy, and inexplicable visions that can’t possibly be real, and you have an evening that becomes anything but simple.

Suddenly, she’s seeing visions everywhere. Being overwhelmed by strange impulses she can’t control. She thinks she’s going insane.

Until she almost kills the first man she touches.


Purchase:




I swallow hard and risk a glance up, checking how much farther I have till I reach my building.
My steps falter.
The sidewalks this close to the quad are crowded, even for late morning. Students are everywhere: walking, hanging out, waiting for buses or rushing to their next class. Wisps of fog drift through the air around them, a bit here, a bit there, none of it as dense as what had been at the club but all of it misty and sparkling.
And suddenly, I’m shaking and I can’t stop. I feel so strange. So desperate, like a junkie who’s gone too long without a hit. I want to cry. Run like hell but I can’t make my feet move. I’m fairly certain my mouth is open, panting.

What’s wrong with me?





Skye Malone is a fantasy and paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time not-quite-convinced that the things she imagines couldn’t actually exist.

Born and raised in central Illinois, she hopes someday to travel the world — though in the meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is closed. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.

Skye also writes YA urban fantasy as Megan Joel Peterson and is the author of The Children and the Blood trilogy.

WW4BB & GCR Presents: A Book Highlight & Giveaway of HEART SONG by Samantha LaFantasie

17 Mar 2015.

Title: Heart Song
Author: Samantha LaFantasie
Genre: New Adult, Paranormal Romance


There once was a world filled with magic and immortals. To protect the immortals the world was torn into two realms, one of mortals and one of magic.

For centuries Jiren has been one of the leaders of the immortal realm, but his power is now put at risk when it is said that the heart song between a mortal, Relena, and a werewolf, Marren is fated to bring both the mortal and immortal realms together once again before the world is forever shrouded in darkness.

The shape-shifting, ethereal vampire, Jiren, will stop at nothing to prevent the realms from rejoining, even killing another Ancient—the most unforgivable crime.

In addition, Relena and Marren are put through one of the greatest tests of their relationship just to prove their love for one another, putting the future of both realms in jeopardy; solely to appease the other Ancient rulers of the immortal realm.

With both realms doomed if they are not together, will Marren and Relena be able to prove their heart song or will Jiren have his way and throw the world into complete devastation?



       I woke from a fitful sleep with a loud clap of thunder that shook the room. I sat up, struggling to catch my breath, when I saw someone at the foot of the bed. “Marren?”
       “I’m here.”
       “What are you doing at the foot of my bed?” I said, impatient and still angry.
       “I want you to see me . . . what I am,” he replied as if he was surrendering to something he didn’t want to do.
       My heart raced. Questions and warnings rang in the back of my mind. One thing overwhelmed them all. Need. A need to know, a need to see, a need to keep him with me because I was too proud to admit I was too scared to be alone.
       I moved slowly, crawling on top of the blankets and to the edge of the bed. I stood on my knees and took deep breaths to calm myself as lightning and thunder crashed and rain pelted the stone balcony. I reached with trembling hands and pulled the sheers apart slowly. Marren stood on the other side of the bench, patiently waiting for my reaction. He stood perfectly still, like a statue belonging in the ballroom with the other races, long fallen into myth and legend. Lighting flashed across his face, and I realized why he was so afraid.
        I froze. Partly in terror and partly in awe. “You’re a werewolf.”
       “Are you afraid of me?” he asked with uncertainty.
       Of course, I was afraid. It wouldn’t be natural otherwise. I couldn’t tell him that. “No. More like . . . mesmerized.”
       I leaned over the bench, reached out my hand and touched his face. Soft and smooth skin returned my touch, just as with the human part of him. My fingers traced the changes, moving over the rises and falls of his features. Goosebumps rose on my arms and trickled down my spine. Another flash of lightning shone on his face, his eyes were closed.
       “You’re beautiful,” I whispered.
       “You—you don’t think I’m a monster?”
       I laughed under my breath. “How could I?”
       “This is what I am. If living a life with me is what you really want, you will need to eventually make the change as well,” his words echoed soundlessly through my mind, as well as the urgency within them.
       I dropped my hand and sat back on my legs. “Before I can think about that, give me some answers.”
       He nodded slowly.
       “How old are you?”
       “Old enough to have seen the changes in this world,” he spoke with sadness in his words.
       “Does that mean you will you live forever?”
       “Theoretically, yes.”
       “So if I decide not to make the change, then . . .”
       “It will kill me when you eventually die.”
       “Why would my death kill you?” I fought a losing battle. Instead of getting answers, I found more questions.
       His mouth opened as if he was going to answer, but then he closed it, looking out the window. Worry creased his brow.
       I tried a different approach, “Is that the decision you warned me of?”
       “I wouldn’t want you to rush into something like this. It takes time. With the company that’s coming, you’ll need to make that decision sooner than I had hoped.”
       I climbed atop the bench and then stepped to the floor to stand in front of him; my knees were stiff from sitting on them. “When?”
       “The decision will need to be made by tomorrow night.”
       “What happens if I say no?”
       “I would rather not think about that but considered that a possibility.”
       “And?” I asked.
       “I’m hoping you won’t,” he said.
       “Why is it important to you for me to say yes?”
       “Because, my world was never complete until you were a part of it, and you are my heart song.”
       My mind emptied of everything. Every question, every thought and argument, even logic left my mind. Not once did I expect to hear words like his. I was never anything to anyone. My own father didn’t even want me, and yet, Marren did. The whirlwind of my life seemed less chaotic with him. He calmed the destructive force that claimed so much of me, and when I thought about not having him around, my heart hurt. I’ve always been told persistence wins over patience. I didn’t realize how true that was until now.
       My decision was made.
       I lifted my hands to his chest, his heart thumped against my touch. I inched close enough for his breath to blow over my neck and shoulders. His lips pressed into my forehead, but I could tell he was holding back.
       I slid my hands around his neck and pulled his lips to mine. Fire pulsed through my veins, setting every nerve ending ablaze. Everywhere his hands touched, tingled like tiny bolts of lightning. Slowly, his arms wrapped around me as our kiss deepened. My feet left the floor as he carried me to the side of the bed, lying me down. His mouth traced the edge of my jaw and the length of my neck. He pulled away, letting his breath flow over my skin in warm waves.
       “Are you sure this is what you want?” 
       “Yes.”
