Dazzle Me by Juliana Haygert

(When You Dance, #1)

Publication date: February 13th 2017

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

A sexy New Adult Contemporary Romance (17+).

The weekend before starting her dream job, Rayna Monroe goes out with her friends to celebrate. What she thought would be a fun girls’ night, ends up with her and a hot guy in her bed. But, before her wild, sexy night even starts, he walks out leaving her alone and naked. Ignoring the shame that consumes her, Rayna is determined to focus on her amazing new job as one of the corps-de-ballet members of NYBT—the best ballet company in the country—and forget all about that awful night. Only when she walks in on her first day, she bumps into no one other than the guy who abandoned her two nights ago.

The life of a ballet dancer is hard. The life of a male ballet dancer is harder, and Joshua Connelly knows it well. Living a lie, Josh just wants to focus on what he loves most while he can—without any distractions. What he didn’t expect was to come face to face with the girl he ran out on before doing something he’d regret.

Mortified over their failed one night stand, Rayna and Josh are determined to avoid each other. Except, they are chosen to represent the company in a big competition. Which means, they have to dance together. Not only on the competition day, but for several hours a day for an entire month.

Despite their attempts of keeping it strictly professional, their hearts have other ideas. And for a moment, everything seems perfect.

And then, it isn’t.

Faced with the truth and tragedy and forced apart, Rayna and Josh will have to find themselves, before they can find each other. If they can.

~Review~

**A copy was provided for Review purposes

Amazing compilation of Paranormal Romance Books! I love reading paranormal romance, and always on the lookout for new stories, especially in the New Adult genre. This set literally gave me everything that I was looking for! It had stories of love and destiny, sacrifices, a second chance at romance and keeping that love when the odds are stacked against you!

Amaranth by Rachael Wade 

Amaranth (The Resistance Trilogy, #1)This story just pulls you in right from the start.  It’s a well-written story that will keep you on your is a very unique take on vampires who don’t want to be monsters. To say the least, I loved it and instantly wanted to read more of her writing.  I managed to read this book in one sitting. Not because it was short but because it was so good! I love the idea of Amaranth, giving vampires an out if they wish to become human again. I’ve heard some say this seems far-fetched but come on, it’s magic! Anything can happen.

Filled with strong characters, fight scenes, humor and of course hunky vampires, with a mix in some revenge, an impulsive, love struck main character and a portal only open under the Crescent moon, and you are ready for Amaranth, a land of exile for Vampires who want to become human again. Once through Amaranth’s gates you can’t return to the human world and live under the rule of Samira, a ruthless witch turned vampire. When Gavin sets off to save the people of Amaranth and himself from his vampiric nature, Camille is convinced it’s a suicide mission and tries to save him. Along with a few friends, they must try to get out of Amaranth without dying first.

This is a well and carefully thought out novel, with skillful world-building, and characters who ring with intensity and reality. The plotting (on both sides of the veil of reality) is extraordinary and very realistic-the reader will accept that any and all of it could actually come to pass. Whenever you begin this book, do set aside a block of time, for you won’t turn away from it till you’re finished, and you’ll find yourself longing for the next volume in the trilogy.

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford

Aurora Sky (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter, #1)Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter is an interesting take on vampire mythology, and I have to say I really like the uniqueness of the mythology. Plague vampires is an interesting concept that I really hope is explored more in the future installments of this Vampire Hunter series. Aurora goes from an ordinary girl to a rebellious kick butt take no names type in a very short amount of time. This is not shocking as the events she has to endure after her accident are a little mind-blowing.

Aurora is a senior at Daneli High school she is going to be leaving Alaska to go to college. When she is in a car accident that changes her life forever. She ended up at a Military Hospital instead of a normal hospital, that is where her mother signed over her rights to Aurora. Aurora has a special kind of blood it can be injected with the right combination of modified organisms and viruses that can make you deadly and powerful. She was saved for a specific reason a chance to serve not only your country but man kind. She doesn’t want to be in the military but she has no choice though. When she went back to school she lost one of her closest friends and Fane started to talk to her. She had to go through some training, she had to kill a vampire. The Military gave her a mentor Dante, Aurora’s mom really likes Dante.

This is a story of a girl who has special blood, so when she almost died, the government decided to surgically repair her to make her a vampire hunter, without her knowledge. This is a very fun one, with a lot of action, and some really interesting characters.

Aurora Sky is a MUST read, I LOVED IT!

Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy

 Flight (The Crescent Chronicles, #1)This was a new idea for a paranormal group of shifters that I have not read before.  This one also has a very surprising unique supernatural character with some really good plot twists, and a great set of characters.

Allison and her friend, Jaime, travel down to New Orleans to have a fun summer before they both leave for college. There they meet Levi, Owen, and Jared who have a mysterious but sexy way about them. Allison has sworn off boys for the summer, but Levi is hell-bent on changing her mind. Allison is snarky and stubborn, and does not like being known as the little rich girl. She likes to handle things on her own. When she first meets Levi, his cocky attitude drives her crazy, and not in a good way, but he starts to grow on her. Allison slowly opens up, and as a character, she is very entertaining. As her relationship with Levi progress, Allie begins to learn that not everything is, as it seems. Levi is that cocky, slightly bad boy that every girl wants but he only has eyes for Allie. At first, Levi annoyed me, just as he did Allison. As I continued to read, he started to grow on me, and I could not help but root for Allie and Levi.

Needless to say, things progress and before long we have undeniable chemistry between our two main characters, no matter how resistant Allie is. It seems that the more she avoids Levi, the more he wants her.  I really enjoyed reading about their relationship develop over the story and what happens at the end I never would have expected!!!

Very entertaining book, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys paranormal fantasy!!

Darkness of Light by Stacey Marie Brown

Darkness of Light (Darkness, #1)What a great book!!  The author keeps you guessing the whole time and leaves you with an ending I never could have guessed!! Very entertaining and I could not stop reading.

The two main characters are well-rounded and realistic. Ember, the protagonist, is a troubled teenager. When she was younger she found her mothers’ body after she was murdered and from then on Embers life spirals downward. She sees thing that aren’t real and with tons of therapy she knows that her visions are an ‘escape’ to her own imaginary world, because that is easier to do than facing reality and coping with her problems. Boy oh boy are the therapists wrong… But as one would expect from a real life person, Ember fights to keep her sanity in tact by refusing to believe that her imaginary world is real.

Thing take a turn for the worst when Ember is wrongly accused for an explosion at school, it is a mere coincidence that she always seems to be right in the middle of exploding lights and glass wherever she goes, or is it?

Ember has to go to a different school for a month because the principal doesn’t want her in his school. Mark doesn’t understand why. She found her mom murdered,Mark thinks that they stopped therapy too soon. When she went to school she meets the green-eyed man that she saw at the police office Eli. Torin tells her that her mother left clues to what she was before she was murdered. Eli can’t be with her and he won tell her what she is.

This is one of the most unique stories, with excellent characters, wonderful surprises, lots of plot twists, and some amazing thoughtfulness when it comes to blowing your mind. I definitely say get this one!!!

Whisper by Heather Hildenbrand

WhisperWhisper is a standalone YA romance novel.

Whisper is barely going on with her life. She lost her parents in a car accident and doesn’t know how to get past the sorrow. She lives with her grandfather Tinker. They help wildlife animals who are in need. Her best friend Erin convinces her to go out one night to a bonfire. When she unexpectedly finds an unconscious boy, her life will never be the same. The Cherokee believe in reincarnation but it’s always been something Whisper has a hard time believing. An evil force stalks Whisper and she may find that magic and the Cherokee ways are more deeply ingrained in her life than she thought. Now she has to fight for her life and those she loves if she wants a chance to find happiness and life again.

This one is amazing. It’s a heartfelt, gripping, heart wrenching story, but it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read… EVER. I mean that. So, with that said, I recommend you pick this one up as well.

Overall, I really enjoyed The Fated Compilation. I found the stories to be intriguing, addictive, and I loved all the different paranormal aspects.

Three things run through my mind at this very moment…

ONE, my life as I once knew it will never be the same.

TWO, the person I’m in love with might not even exist.

THREE, the deception that has unfolded before me has the power of life and death.



Sixteen year old, Breanna Davis, has heard the saying; life isn’t always what it seems…well, that saying rings true now more than ever. As horrifying visions appear before her, revealing tragedies that will forever change the fate of those she loves, she realizes that she may be the only person who can stop them from becoming reality.

Amongst the chaos of this new discovery, Bre is faced with a stranger, Eve, who moves in on Bre’s friends and begins to follow her every move. As Eve’s true motives begin to surface, Bre must fight against, not only the visions, but the dangers Eve holds close.

There is another secret kept- Collin, a boy held captive in Bre’s dreams, the boy she is secretly falling in love with but isn’t sure he even exists. As she tries to make it work with Austin, an old friend who could possibly be more, Bre battles against her feelings for Collin.

Bre is faced with an almost impossible decision, to choose her life or follow her destiny. If she doesn’t intercede, people will certainly die. If she does, her own life could be at stake. In the end, if she fails, she’ll lose everything.

by Megan Shepherd

Hardcover, 432 pagesExpected publication: January 29th 2013 by Balzer + Bray (first published January 15th 2013) In the darkest places, even love is deadly.

Sixteen-year-old Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself in London—working as a maid, attending church on Sundays, and trying not to think about the scandal that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumors about her father’s gruesome experiments. But when she learns he is alive and continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the accusations are true.

Accompanied by her father’s handsome young assistant, Montgomery, and an enigmatic castaway, Edward—both of whom she is deeply drawn to—Juliet travels to the island, only to discover the depths of her father’s madness: He has experimented on animals so that they resemble, speak, and behave as humans. And worse, one of the creatures has turned violent and is killing the island’s inhabitants. Torn between horror and scientific curiosity, Juliet knows she must end her father’s dangerous experiments and escape her jungle prison before it’s too late. Yet as the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father’s genius—and madness—in her own blood.

Inspired by H. G. Wells’s classic The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Madman’s Daughter is a dark and breathless Gothic thriller about the secrets we’ll do anything to know and the truths we’ll go to any lengths to protect.

Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: January 22nd 2013 by Hyperion
Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.

Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.

Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was, a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often-violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.

Being a Keeper isn’t just dangerous-it’s a constant reminder of those Mac has lost. Da’s death was hard enough, but now her little brother is gone too. Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself might crumble and fall.

In this haunting, richly imagined novel, Victoria Schwab reveals the thin lines between past and present, love and pain, trust and deceit, unbearable loss and hard-won redemption.
