About So Many Books, So Little Time

Hey! I'm Ana, I've been reading since I read my first Harry Potter Book about 9 years ago, which was Book 6, The Half-Blood Prince, I had seen all the movies up til that point but I just really wanted to read it before the movie came out. And reading The Half-Blood Prince really got me into Books, Thank you, J.K Rowlings for inspiring me and writing an amazing series like Harry Potter. Honestly, If it wasn't for reading that HP book, I probably wouldn't love reading as much as I do today. I got into blogging about 7 years ago, and I love it! I love sharing my thoughts on books, just as much as I love reading them, and I love learning things from the books I read. Hey, if you have any books that you think I might like please recommend them! All recommendations are happily welcome and appreciated!

Book Blitz ~ Demon Magic and a Martini by @AnnetteMMarie: Excerpt + Giveaway!

Demon Magic and a Martini
by Annette Marie

(The Guild Codex: Spellbound #4)
Published by: Dark Owl Fantasy Inc.
Publication date: April 12th 2019
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy

When I first landed a bartending job at the local guild, I didn’t know a thing about magic. These days, I’m practically an expert on the different magical classes, but there’s one nobody ever talks about: Demonica.

Turns out they have a good reason for that. My guild is strictly hellion-free, because who wants to risk life and limb to control the biggest bullies on the mythic playground?

Well, some people do, and now a demon has been loosed in the city. My three best friends are determined to slay it, but even badass combat mages are critically out-magicked. And that’s not all. The monster they’re tracking—it’s not hiding. It’s not fleeing. It’s not leaving a trail of corpses everywhere it goes.

The demon is hunting too. And in a city full of mythics, it’s searching for deadlier prey.

If we can’t unravel the demon’s sinister motivations, more innocent people will die, but finding the answers means digging into dark secrets … and learning truths I never wanted to know.

~~~

Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn’t a reverse harem. It’s 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.

~Excerpt~

“Speaking of worry …” Sin’s eyes narrowed. “I heard all about how you went demon hunting with Aaron, Kai, and Ezra. I have to ask … what the hell were any of you thinking?”

“Um, well—”

“You aren’t combat trained, and demons are the fiercest, deadliest opponents out there! Why would Darius even approve it? You’re all idiots.”

I managed a bleak smile. “Thanks, Sin. Appreciate the vote of confidence.”

She sniffed angrily. “You know you aren’t ready for that, and I’d really prefer my friend not get herself killed.”

Couldn’t argue with her there. I’d also prefer not to get killed.

Lifting the tattered book off her lap, she smacked it down on the bar. “We need to look at options.”

“Uh … options for what?”

“Defensive alchemy.” She cast me a flinty stare. “Since you’re all for the dangerous jobs now, you need to be armed with more than a couple of artifacts. I heard you used a smoke screen. What else did you take?”

Bemusedly, I watched her flip the book open. “Just flash-bang potions. What is that thing?”

“My grimoire. All Arcana mythics have one—where we record all the spells or transmutations we’ve learned or invented.” She turned several spotted, liquid-stained pages covered in handwriting and diagrams. “I can make smoke bombs and flash-bangs easily enough, but you need something to stop an opponent. Personally, I don’t like sleep potions. It’s easy to get it on your own skin and then you’re asleep instead of them.”

“Yeah, that’d be bad.”

She skimmed a few more pages. “Enhanced strength is useful, but it doesn’t last long, and unless you’re in excessively good shape, you’ll crash hard afterward. Let’s see … amnesia, no. Fasting potion, no. Enhanced speed, no.”

“What’s wrong with speed? I’d like to be faster.”

“It’s hopelessly impractical. Your body gets faster, but your reflexes don’t, so it’s difficult to control without training and practice. You’ll spend the potion’s duration tripping over your own feet and running into things.”

“Oh.” Too bad. “What’s a fasting potion?”

“Drink it and you won’t need food, water, or a bathroom for about forty-eight hours. Good for certain situations, but you pay for it afterward.” She perused more recipes. “Enhanced perception, air buffer, true sight, anti-emotionalizer, allure-fume—none of these are useful.”

“Allure-fume?” I repeated. “What’s that?”

She winced. “Uh, it’s a … um … perfume.”

I stared at her pointedly, waiting for an explanation, and her cheeks turned pink.

“A few drops on the skin will make the wearer especially alluring to the opposite sex. Like pheromones.”

“Why do you know a potion like that?”

“I tried it out when I was younger, okay?” she muttered defensively. “Lesson learned. You don’t have to lecture me.”

“What happened?”

“I wore it on a first date with this guy I really liked.” “Did it work?”

“It worked on him, plus every male who got within twenty feet of me. I spent our entire dinner date pushing random men out of our booth. I’ve never been hit on so many times in one evening. Most of the men were twice my age and married.”

Fighting back a snicker, I asked, “Did you go on a second date with your crush?”

“No.” She hung her head over the grimoire. “An early sign that my love life was doomed.”

{Review} Eternal Vow by Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti


44181308

Eternal Vow
by Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti

(Age of Vampires, #4)
Kindle, 398 pages
Published April 22, 2019
Rating: 4/5 stars

Goodreads

In the wake of the disastrous wedding, Montana and Callie are pulled in opposing directions by the binds that tie them.

While Montana yearns for Erik Belvedere, Callie is trapped between who her heart wants and the bloodsucker the gods have bound her to.

Tension builds as the gods toy with the slayers and the vampires, compelling them to collide. And with an age-old hatred burning between Magnar and Erik…it’s time for the fight to take place.


~Review~


*a copy was provided by the author*

“Endlessly different but eternally bound. The sun would set. And the moon would rise. The point at which the day met the night was always the most beautiful. So perhaps there was a chance for us yet.”

Eternal Vow is the fourth book in the Age of Vampires series and continues the story of Montana, Erik, Callie and Magnar.

These books are so beautifully written. These book take all your emotions on a ride. 

Eternal Vow starts right where Eternal Curseleft off and it was so good. The story was so well-written, there were so many good plot twists and the book was really fast paced. The Age of Vampire series is just such a good vampire series and I cannot get enough of it. This novel was addicting, I read it in one sitting. I don’t know what more I can say about this heart-stopping series and amazing characters.

Just like in all the other books in the series, we read in Callie, Montana, Magnar and Erik’s perspective. I’m glad that we have a few chapters in Magnar and Erik’s perspective because we get to know bits and pieces from their past. I also love reading in Callie and Montana’s perspective because they’re both so different.

The story is nonstop action as the two remaining slayers of the old world battle against the vampires and the vampires continue to try to find a way to break their curse.

“I have lived a life as a slave. I have escaped that life as I promised my father I would. I have been one half of a whole to my beloved twin. I have loved Erik as a monster. And I have loved him as a man. So I have been free, I have had a place in this world and I have known the deepest kind of love my heart ever had to offer. What have you done with you eternal existence, Andvari?”

Callie and Montana are torn apart fighting to reunite, and then their paths collide only to leave Montana and Erik clawing to get back to one another afraid to accept the painful choice of family or each other as a mutually exclusive. As a thousand-year feud comes to a head in this book we get tons of action and I was continually finding myself holding my breath but the bonds of sisterhood are stronger than the gods deigned to realize and Callie and Montana might not only prove to be the answer to the vampire curse but they at last know who the real enemy is – not the slayers or the vampires, but the gods who use them as toys.

“I’m caught between two powerful enemies in an ancient war. And I love people on both sides”

Hands down this series is getting better and better with each book. This whole story-line is so unique, and the creativity behind the characters and the plot is just great! That’s why I’ve really been loving Caroline’s books, they’re so different and unique, she is an author to look out for! I’ve never read anything from Susanne, other than this series so far, but I’m looking forward to more from her. 

This series is something to look out for… SERIOUSLY. If you love vampire stories with amazing back stories and characters that are fleshed out, strong females, slow burning love stories that truly add to the story, action, twists and turns, then this series is for you. It literally has it all. I’m currently reading book 5, Eternal Night AND OOOOOH MY it’s good! I highly recommend this series!

Book Blitz ~ Their Discovery by Rebecca Grace Allen: Excerpt + Giveaway!

Their Discovery
by Rebecca Grace Allen

(Legally Bound, #3)
Publication date: April 29th 2019
Genres: Erotica, Romance

Exploring their fantasies could save their marriage…or push it over the edge

Legally Bound, Book 3

Samantha Archer’s life has hit a wall. Her world is housework, homework and reminding her husband—the biggest kid in the family—to help out at home. Once she felt confident, powerful and sexy, but Brady doesn’t seem to notice her anymore, and now all she feels is invisible.

Brady has tried being the goofy guy who stole Sam’s heart, but it’s not working. He’s losing the woman he loves and doesn’t have a clue how to fix it. He’s keeping his darkest fantasies hidden too, sure they’re not what Sam wants, and his inability to please her cuts him deeper than she knows.

When Sam lands a new job at a law firm, Brady still won’t pick up the slack, and one night giving him orders unexpectedly reignites their missing spark. Sam discovers the Femdomme she didn’t know she was, kindling Brady’s submissive desires.

But while things heat up inside the bedroom, life outside it starts unraveling. Brady’s need to call the shots at work complicates his hunger to kneel for his wife, and Sam has longed to experiment in more ways than one. Their exploration of dominance and submission goes a step too far when they invite Sam’s sultry switch coworker into their bed, and the fallout could cost them everything.

Warning: contains a six-foot-five, ex-football player geek and a ballsy, badass redhead who’s learning to unleash her inner Domme. Scenes depicting humiliation, pegging and threesomes could disturb, or stimulate a thirst for adventure.

The full trilogy:

~~~

~Excerpt~

She went up on her toes, stretching her supple body to put an unused juice glass back in its place. The move pulled her nightshirt away from her back, offering Brady a slice of skin in between the cotton and the edge of her pajama bottoms.

He adjusted himself and tried to think about something else, and not just because his kids were nearby. Even if they weren’t, he’d bet nothing would happen. Sam’s lack of interest in sex had been from the baby weight she’d gained. Brady never minded when she was heavier—he’d joked that there was more of Sam to love. To him it was a reminder of the years they’d spent building this family, the lives they’d lived. Her hips had seemed more lush back then, too, her breasts fuller. She’d stopped letting him play with them when she was nursing, and now that she’d lost the weight, he’d been waiting for the green light to go back there again.

She’d never given it.

They’d become platonic, disconnected in a sexless marriage. He’d taught himself to shut down his impulses, trying to find satisfaction with his right hand. But now, watching her move around, her messy red hair up in a bun, he wished he could get her even messier, wished he could reach for whatever she was trying to get, and after he’d given it to her, she’d hop up on the counter and take off her shirt. She’d tell him to kiss each tender nipple, then order him to the floor. Laughing, she’d comment on how desperate she’d gotten him, how she’d bet he couldn’t wait until his face was between her thighs.

Brady tore his gaze away from her, his cheeks blazing. He wasn’t supposed to fantasize like that. A real man didn’t want his wife to order him around, to let her take what she wanted and to revel in whatever pleasure he could give her. He was the ex-football player, the breadwinner, the dad of two little girls. He was supposed to be strong. Dominant. Like the men in her books.

He’d peeked at them once when she’d left her iPad open. After months of saying she felt fat, that the kids would hear, or one of the dozens of other reasons she’d given him, he never imagined she’d be reading, well, smut. And the men who filled those digital pages gave orders and grabbed fistfuls of hair. They were rough and aggressive, took what they wanted and commanded obedience.

That wasn’t him. And if that was what Sam wanted, there was no point in reaching for her at all.

It was ironic. A real flaw in his DNA. He knew a few strands different and he’d be more like the kind of guy Sam wanted. The kind who was forceful in bed and didn’t miss half of what she was saying because he had so much on his mind he couldn’t focus. It was like the information got stuck between his ears and his brain, which often had him standing stock-still and trying to recall what she’d asked, lowering his head in embarrassment when she had to repeat it.

Book Blitz ~ Love, Again by L.P. Dover: Excerpt + Giveaway!



~~~


Love, Again
by L.P. Dover

Published by: Loveswept
Publication date: April 9th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Sometimes all you need is a second chance.

“L. P. Dover knows how to create the men who make us swoon, the book boyfriends we all want.”—New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin

Aubrey Reynolds is a small-town girl who’s made it big. A successful Hollywood director, Aubrey doesn’t have time to linger on what could have been. But when a routine blood test comes back with a false positive, she decides to take some time off to do the things she’s always wanted to do: taste the famous chocolate chip cookies at the Minnesota State Fair, hike the Grand Teton National Park, scuba dive in the Caribbean. But after Aubrey admits to herself what she’s really missing, she heads back home to Dusty Valley, Oklahoma . . . and the man she left behind.

Cole Haywood is a small-town fireman and that’s just fine with him. Sure, when the love of his life left their hometown to chase her dreams he was heartbroken and—he’ll admit—damn mad. But Cole would have never forgiven himself if he had held Aubrey back from success. So the last thing he expects after all these years is to walk into his favorite bar one night and find the girl he’s always loved—there—looking for him. Maybe now’s the time to make his dreams come true.

Look for more of New York Times bestselling author L. P. Dover’s captivating novels:

~~~

~Excerpt~

We pulled up to Tornado Alley bar, and Cole’s truck was there along with a dozen others. “Are you sure this is a good idea?” I asked, glancing around at all the cars. “There’s a lot of people here.”

Bennett parked his truck and pulled out the key. “Yep. A lot of our high school buddies will be in there. They’ll be excited to see the famous movie director, Aubrey Reynolds.” He winked, and it gave me hope. If I could get him on my side, I had to believe I could convince Cole too. He reached over and opened my door. “If you don’t want to go in there with everyone, I’ll bring him out.”

Hands shaking, I nodded as my whole body started to tremble with nerves. “That sounds better. I don’t want to go in there just yet.”

Bennett sighed. “All right. I’ll bring him out.”

He got out of the truck and disappeared inside. Slowly, I exited the truck and walked toward the steps. My legs felt so heavy I doubted I could even climb up them. This was it. It was the moment I’d been dreading, yet looking forward to. I’d dreamed about the time I’d see Cole again, face to face. I already knew it wouldn’t be an easy meeting, especially considering how Bennett’s first encounter with me was.

Everything moved in slow motion as I waited for Cole to come outside. I stood at the bottom of the steps, feeling more vulnerable with each passing second. What if he saw me and then turned right back around? Getting him to hear me out wasn’t going to be easy.

“Oh my God, I can’t do this.” Heart racing out of control, I dashed to the side of the building. I peeked my head around the corner just as the door opened and Cole stepped out. I flattened myself against the wall so he couldn’t see me, and I was almost certain he’d hear me hyperventilating.

“What exactly did you want me to see?” Cole asked, laughing at Bennett. It was clear he’d had a couple of drinks already. “There’s nothing out here.” Hearing his voice brought up all sorts of emotions inside me. I’d missed him so much.

Bennett huffed, most likely thinking I ran off. “Never mind, brother. My mistake.”

Cole chuckled. “Come on, I’ll buy you a drink.”

I jumped out from beside the building, and Bennett stopped. “Wait,” I called out. Cole had his back to me, but he froze and turned around slowly. The second our eyes locked, nothing else existed. It was what I’d secretly hoped for. He might hate me, but there was no denying the bond we had. I felt the spark between us even now.

{Review} Eternal Curse by Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti


44181308

Eternal Curse
by Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti

(Age of Vampires, #3)
Kindle, 148 pages
Published April 5th, 2019
Rating: 4/5 stars

Goodreads

While Callie struggles with the binds of the slayer’s vow, Montana faces a wedding which will deliver her into the hands of the vampire royals forever.

As the murders escalate in New York City, it seems Montana is their next target. And as Callie races there to rescue her, she finds herself in the hands of the gods…

Can Callie make it to New York before all hope is lost? And will Montana be able to tear herself away from her fiancee before the wedding, even though she’s captivated by him?


~Review~


*a copy was provided by the author*

“Warrior born and monster made… Moon Child walks the path of salvation. Erik Belvedere walks the same path. A monster must be made, Julius Elioson. It is time.”

OMGGGGG! I don’t even know where to start.

Eternal Curse is the third book in the Age of Vampires series and continues the story of Montana and Callie.

Eternal Curse starts right where Eternal Shade left off and it was so good. The story was so well-written, there were so many good plot twists and the book was really fast paced. The Age of Vampire series is just such a good vampire series and I cannot get enough of it. This novel was addicting, I read it in one sitting. I don’t know what more I can say about this heart-stopping series and amazing characters. The ending was explosive.

Just like in Eternal Shade, we read in Callie, Montana, Magnar and Erik’s perspective. I’m glad that we have a few chapters in Magnar and Erik’s perspective because we get to know bits and pieces from their past. I also love reading in Callie and Montana’s perspective because they’re both so different.

The story is nonstop action as the two remaining slayers of the old world battle against the vampires and the vampires continue to try to find a way to break their curse.

“I don’t want you to love me back. I want you to despise me. To do what you do best, Rebel, and goddamn rebel. Don’t be mine. Don’t ever be mine. Because if you are, you will burn up in this fire that lives in me and I will never forgive myself for it.”

Hands down this series is getting better and better with each book. I love the chapters alternating between the sisters and Magnar and Erik. We learn more back story with both. The explosive climax was devastating and I felt like screaming towards the end. The stakes have never been higher.

This whole story-line is so unique, and the creativity behind the characters and the plot is just great! That’s why I’ve really been loving Caroline’s books, they’re so different and unique, she is an author to look out for! I’ve never read anything from Susanne, other than this series so far, but I’m looking forward to more from her. 

This series is something to look out for… SERIOUSLY. That cliff-hangar, got me so shook. I’m sooo looking forward to starting book 4, Eternal Vow tonight. I WANT MORE!!! haha I highly recommend it!

Blog Tour ~ The Stars in Her Eyes by C.M. Albert: Review + Giveaway!



~~~


The Stars in Her Eyes
by C.M. Albert

(Love in LA Quartet, #1)
Publication date: March 26th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Reverse Harem, Romance

Rating: 4/5 stars

Love in LA just got a whole lot hotter!

One woman. Three men. Some things are best kept secret.

When Creslyn Knight auditions for the role of a life time, she never expects three things:
1. To know the casting director—intimately.
2. To be insanely attracted to the three stand-in actors at the audition.
3. That she’d soon be putting her morals to the test when her resolve weakens.

Acting is in Creslyn’s blood, and she’s focused her sights on one thing: landing the role of a lifetime. But she’s always been told that everything comes at a cost. The casting director names his when he tells her she must make him believe she can surrender to a harem of men, or he can’t justify giving her the lead role.

Determined to prove him wrong and show him she can tap into a passion that deep, Creslyn throws herself into rehearsals. But the fine line between script and reality soon starts to blur, leading her and three men into unchartered territory. The only problem? She has a jealous roommate, a disgruntled mother, and a string of paparazzi hot on her trail, making Creslyn question the cost of everything.

In a world where some things are best kept secret, is the price of fame too high when it comes to the heart?

The Stars in Her Eyes is book one of the Love in LA Quartet and is a new adult, steamy contemporary romance reverse harem LOVE STORY that can be read as a stand-alone or as an introduction to the series. All the heat you’ve come to expect with a reverse harem, AND a storyline worthy of a contemporary romance love story. Finally, the best of both worlds!

Goodreads | Purchase

On sale for $2.99 for a limited time!


~Review~


Oooh mah gawd! This was sooo hot!

The Stars in Her Eyes by C.M. Albert is definitely a one day read, I was hooked instantly, and I’m sure you’ll be too!

Although this was different and not exactly what I was expecting. I love RH but this one didn’t really feel like one. I felt that it was something a bit different to that. Unlike most RH books, this one led to a final couple, with the other men that she had been interested in left as just friends; which was kinda weird to me.

But other than that, I absolutely loved it.  It was well-written, the characters in this book are full of passion, desire—not just for each other—and it truly blew me away.

Creslyn is an actress at the tip of major stardom. One day she goes to a casting call that will change her life forever……and not only does she have to deal with these new feeling but her estranged mother is causing drama and her best friend/ roommate is acting jealous. There were lots of little twists that really kept the story going, it was great.

This was a good start to a new series that I’m sooo looking forward to. The Stars in Her Eyes is definitely a book to read, especially if you’re looking to start reading RH, but not quite there yet, since, like I mentioned earlier, it leads to a final couple. BUT yeah. I recommend it!
