Best of 2013: Favorite Reads

Finally, I have my list of my favorite books for 2013 that I enjoyed! Unfortuately, I didn't read a lot of books that were released during 2013 that I really enjoyed, so, my list is a little small!

This is one of those books where you go excited to mental meltdown! It is so good and engaging and I am loving every new book in the Arcadia Bell Series.


Jagged was a pleasant surprise and I loved every moment of it and I am definitely looking forward to the next Colorado Mountain book!

The Descendants Series is one of my new favorite Urban Fantasy Series and I just can't help but devour them. I spend the day reading this book and finishing before the day ends!


I absolutely LOVED Twice Tempted. I loved it even more than the first in the Night Prince Series, Once Burned. I think I just liked the plot more this time and I enjoyed it 10X More!

Review: Reaver by Larissa Ione

Title:  Reaver
Author:  Larissa Ione
Series:  Lords of the Deliverance #5
Publisher:  Pocket
Release Date:  December 17, 2013
Pages:  400


Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before...to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.


Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel's blood...

REAVER by Larissa Ione was quite the ride. I have to say that it didn't wow me, like many of Ione's other books have. I think the problem remained to be that I wasn't all that invested in Reaver's story. Mainly he wasn't a character I had wanted to really read about front and center and he still felt like one of the side characters. I don't really know how to explain it.

I felt the whole storyline was interesting though. I liked finding out about Reaver and Harvester's past, who they were and how that all affects them today. But I think their personalities are all out of wack though comparing the past and present Harvester and Reaver. And unfortunately, my feelings towards Harvester did not change in this book. I understand that she sacrificed so much for Reaver and his children, but I just didn't warm up to her. I guess once you leave an impression that impression sticks.

I did really enjoy seeing old characters again, like our Demonica gang! And the ending was really good. REAVER by Larissa Ione ended up being good, but just not great. And I am so happy there will be more Demonica books! I definitely am looking forward to the next! I love Ione's paranormal romance books!

Review: Rock Chick Redemption by Kristen Ashley

Title:  Rock Chick Redemption
Author:  Kristen Ashley
Series:  Rock Chick, #3
Publisher:  N/A
Release Date:  November 8, 2010
Pages:  kindle edition, 672

Roxie’s on the run from a bad boyfriend who will not catch the hint that it is o-v-e-r. She’s in no mood for love at first sight, but when her eyes fall on Hank, it’s trouble from the get-go. Roxie tries to hold Hank at arms length but Hank wants to be a closer (as in, a lot closer). Roxie’s trouble catches up with her and Hank wants to help but Roxie knows in her heart that she’s no good for a white hat guy. The problem is no one agrees with her, especially her crazy hippie best friend Annette or her parents; the even crazier small-Indiana-town Herb and Trish. Toss into the mix the gang from Rock Chick and Rock Chick Rescue and Roxie finds herself totally outnumbered.

Climb in for another Rock Chick wild ride through Rock Chick Redemption. As the odds stack up against Roxie, she has no choice but to hold on and just ride it out through the kidnappings, car chases, society parties, a riot at the strip club, Hank getting “Mom Bombed” and one crazy night at the Haunted House.

During all this Hank works at convincing her she really wants to stay and he, along with the Hot Bunch, go all out to make her safe. Hank also needs to work on showing Roxie that her past decisions don’t mean her future can’t include something as downright delicious as… normal.

I went into ROCK CHICK REDEMPTION and it seemed like the heroine was pretty sane. Opps. Spoke way too soon. This book was way better than the last Rock Chick book I read, but I"ve been having problems with the heroines in this series. They are just so dumb and stupid. Thank god the other stuff in the book made up for it.

“Belonging to me doesn’t mean I’ll make you do anything, it just means I consider you mine for as long as this lasts. It means I protect you, it means I take care of you. For another man, it might mean something different. Don’t confuse me with another man”

I dont' buy into all that stuff. First she thinks she can outsmart her ex and comes up with this stupid plan that doesn't even work at all Next she doesn't even file a report or seek help from police or even Lee's firm, even after knowing what they can do. Seriously? And she has this whole I"m not good enough attitude. I"m sorry, but it so pathetic. Oh, and while I"m at it I"m going to throw myself back to my ex, when all these guys who are experienced in the police biz are trying to protect me, just because my ex is holding up a gun. Come on! I cannot believe this girls stupidity. She's worse than Indy!

“Son, let me tell you something. Even if you don't care, pretend you do. Honestly, it's the best way to go," Dad, the voice of experience, decided to wade in. "She talks about toss pillows. You don't care about toss pillows. You don't even know what toss pillows are. Pretend that toss pillows are your highest priority in life.”

Thankfully the storyline and the side character's silly little drama made up for Stupid lil Roxie. I loved the whole girl talk stuff with Indy, Aly, Jet, and Daisy! I love that group. Everybody in everyone's business. It's so funny! I Love the Hot Guy bunch. I've become attracted to Vance & Luke, so I am so looking forward to their book! Best part of the book was Roxie's parents! They were a hoot! Kristen Ashley writes the best parents in her books. Ones that will make you laugh out loud! Looking forward to the next one!

Review: Mark of the Demon by Diana Rowland

Title:  Mark of the Demon
Author:  Diana Rowland
Series:  Kara Gillian, #1
Publisher:  Bantam
Release Date:  June 23, 2009
Pages:  370


Cop and conjurer of demons, she's a woman in danger of losing control—to a power that could kill....

Why me? Why now? That’s what Beaulac, Louisiana, detective Kara Gillian was asking herself when an angelic creature named Rhyzkahl unexpectedly appeared during a routine summoning. Kara was hoping to use her occult skills to catch a serial killer, but never had she conjured anything like this unearthly beautiful and unspeakably powerful being whose very touch set off exquisite new dimensions of pleasure. But can she enlist his aid in helping her stop a killer who’s already claimed the lives—and souls—of thirteen people? And should she? The Symbol Man is a nightmare that the city thought had ended three years ago. Now he’s back for an encore and leaving every indication on the flesh of his victims that he, too, is well versed in demonic lore.

Kara may be the only cop on Beaulac’s small force able to stop the killer, but it is her first homicide case. Yet with Rhyzkahl haunting her dreams, and a handsome yet disapproving FBI agent dogging her waking footsteps, she may be in way over her head...

I hear about the Kara Gillian Series a lot for the Urban Fantasy Readers and I just had to jump into it. I was too damn curious not to. And I am glad I did because MARK OF THE DEMON was absolutely amazing!

Kara is a normal girl, who is a detective and oh, also she is a demon summoner, which seems pretty cool, right? Well until she summons one of the powerful demons into existence. Kara accidentally summons the demon lord, Rhyzkahl. He is ruthless and dangerous and you do not want to piss him off.

Kara is pretty cool and loves her work and what she does. She's not very confident in the relationship department. She's totally into Ryan Kristoff who is working on the case of the 'Symbol Man' with her. And Ryan is totally cool I will be enjoying more of their relationship and seeing where that goes

Now, let's move on to Rhyzkahl. Sometimes in Urban Fantasy I want a change. I absolutely love that Rhyzkahl is ruthless and dangerous. The don't mess with me type. Rhyzkahl does have a fascination with Kara and I would like to learn more about that as the story continues, but I do like him in general. This is seriously one hot demon lord.

I loved MARK OF THE DEMON. I will definitely be continuing on with it and hopefully each book in the series will get better and better. I can't wait for more Kara and her summoning adventures!

Most Wanted Reads: Kaleidoscope by Kristen Ashley

Most Wanted Reads is inspired by Waiting on Wednesday hosted/created by Breaking the Spine. I just wanted to personalize it a little bit for me.

When old friends become
new lovers...anything can happen.


Sexy, gifted, and loyal, PI Jacob Decker is a tall, cool drink of perfection who had Emmanuelle Holmes at "hello." His relationship with Emme's best friend kept them apart for years, but things have changed. Now that a case has brought him to Gnaw Bone, Colorado, the road is wide open for Emme and Deck to explore something hotter and deeper than Emme dreamed possible. So why is she sabotaging the best thing that's ever happened to her?

It isn't easy to catch Deck off guard, but Emme does just that when she walks back into his life after nine long years. The curvy brunette had her charms back in the day, but now she's a bona fide knockout . . . and she wants to rekindle their friendship. Deck, however, wants more. Emme's always been the one; she excites Deck's body and mind like no other woman can. But a dark chapter from Emme's past overshadows their future together. Now only Deck can help her turn the page-if she'll let him . . .
