TITLE: Heart of Five 
AUTHOR: L.A. Kirk
Genre: RH/ Serial/ PNR 
RELEASE DATE: 

SYNOPSIS~
Average is how Megan Little would describe her life until her twenty-fifth birthday. Her body starts to change like a countdown clock heading for zero. When her research on the transformation proves futile, she makes a desperate decision and travels north to investigate a supernatural reason for what's happening.

On the way, a chance encounter leaves her car vandalized, forcing her to stay the night in a small, tourist town. 

Five men step in to help Megan only to open up more questions in her search for the truth.

EXCERPT~

Slowly, I sit up and stretch, blinking a few times to adjust to the light. If someone watches me, I want to be as natural as possible to not tip them off. After grabbing my food bag, I hop off the bench and stroll over to the trashcan. In my peripheral vision, I catch a streak of black as it runs past my car, too small to be a man. I glance at my car and freeze. 
A large, black panther sits on the hood. With its amber eyes staring at me, it lifts its head and roars.
Panicked, instinct takes over, and I whirl around and run for the woods behind the picnic table. I realize too late that this creature will out run me in seconds, but there are no alternatives. If I’m lucky, I can loop back around to the car before the cat turns me into lunch.
Not far into the woods, I spot a split in the path that should lead back to the parking lot. I quickly check behind me, relieved not to see the animal. Maybe it didn’t chase me? I take the hard right and stop dead in my tracks. 
A gray wolf sits in the middle of the path.


MY REVIEW~
This was only the third serial I've read and I'm gradually starting to fall in love with them! I'm very curious to see how book 2 will end up. L.A. Kirk's soon to be released serial had some shifter hotties with just a dash of humor mixed in. Heart of Five is a supernatural shifter serial that you won't want to miss!

REVIEW~ 


*ARC was kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review.

The Offer was one of the first serials I've read. For being my first though it was amazing. In just 37 pages the author brought humor, steam, and truly yummy eye candy!

The offer dives right into the juicy good bits. I think I'm loving this more than whats considered the norm of RH with an entire 24 chapters in a book. A serial doesn't have to spend five chapters delving into a back story and giving the reader countless words of the heroines description. From chapter 1 - 3 we meet the story's focus, the demons (yum). Boy are they yummy! 

An enjoyable read for those who don't mind serials and are simply looking for a light and sexy-fun read. That ENDING though has me thinking what will happen next and I think I can't wait to find out *hint *sexy demons are bound to play a part.

Fire (Graceling Realm Series #2)






Buy on Amazon and Barnes and Noble






Synopsis:
SHE HAS BEEN HIDDEN AWAY.
Now she is choosing to use her power.
It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her.
Everyone...except Prince Brigan


Review:
Fire is a prequel novel to Graceling I will like to say first. You don’t have to read Graceling first. This book is an intriguing. It has war, romance, mystery, and coming out of one's shell and self-acceptance. The plot and idea of the story are so enjoyable to read. When I began reading this, I was caught right away because of the opening scene of the chapter. I didn’t want to stop reading it. So I read it nonstop, and it kept my attention the whole time. The book’s setting definitively helps the story. The warring factions and who they try to recruit. Even though this is not historical fiction, it has that more 18th-century technology and setup of government as an absolute monarch. Though, not all the culture is like the 18th century. Such as women being a part of the military, and they are more equal like in recent times. The Dellian people have their language and culture. For funerals, they burn the bodies and sing what is called the Dellian Lament. There are the main antagonist's plot and the secondary antagonist's plot that intertwine but are separate.

I love the characters. Especially Fire and Brigan. I love how Fire started out with self-doubt and no acceptance of her being a human monster. I love how she love over time through the war she starts accepting the fact that she is a human monster and that doesn’t mean she has to be evil. She starts out not wanting to use her abilities for the war but over time she realizes that she can use the abilities of a human monster to help the war. I love Brigan even though he was cold in the beginning. The other characters are amazing and are well developed. They were entertaining to read. They had me laugh, and they had me frown.

I highly recommend this book. Especially those who love Fantasy genre and the Romance genres. There are times when sex is implied, but it is not explicit. So that is why I would categorize this in Teen. It is still a wonderful read, and I also recommend it to adults to. This book definitely categorizes as a favorite for me. Hope you give this a chance.

Blurb~
After Caitlyn's life falls apart, can she trust her old racing competitors to help her build a new future?
On a poisonous planet, humans and halions coexist in stacked city structures with only a high wall to push back the toxic jungle. But not all poison comes from outside. As an elite, Level 12 citizen and the daughter of a ruling family, Caitlyn has fought her entire life to not follow in her father’s footsteps.
When her secret identity as Sparks, a low-level disc-bike racer, is discovered, her father ships her off to the Academia for Planetary Alliance to turn her into a proper politician. Determined to toe the line until she can escape, Caitlyn’s plans are once again thrown off balance when she meets her new classmates, Declan and twin brothers, Felix and Connor—three men who know her and are determined to become a team.
EXCERPT~


“Yeah, this year will be great!” a male voice shouts from behind me.
Startled, I twist around and slip. My heart thunders in my chest as my feet leave the ground. Free falling, I fling my arms out, desperate for something to anchor me.
“Whoa, there.” A warm arm encircles my waist, catches me against a warm chest. “Be careful. Those heels are dangerous.”
I glance up into golden-brown eyes, surrounded by a thick fringe of lashes. Heavy, dark brown eyebrows slant upward as his mouth curves into a grin. My pulse pounds harder, now that I'm safe.
“Thank you.” A blush stains my cheeks, and I curse the translucent skin that came with my red hair. 
“That's some heartbeat you have there.” He sets me on my feet but keeps a hand on my back as if worried I'll fall again. The heat of his palm sinks through my light sweater, burning its way into my flesh.
“Thank you.” I shake myself and stammer, “For catching me. Falling hurts.”
“Yeah, I know the feeling.” His gravely voice rumbles inside his chest.

I frown, the sound pinging in my memory.

“Nice catch, dude,” the same guy from earlier calls. A shaggy, black haired head pops over my rescuer's shoulder. Grass-green eyes rake over me, a smirk twisting the corner of his mouth. “Seriously, nice catch.”

“Stop it, you'll creep her out.” Another guy appears, black hair combed away from his face. Through a pair of wire-rimmed glasses, his serious green eyes glance over me. Tall and slender, the white button down school shirt hugs his body to accentuate the narrowness of his hips. “Forgive my brother, he has no manners.”
As my eyes shift between the two brothers, the first one stands straighter, moving away from his brown-haired friend. He pushes the black hair back from his face and turns to him. “Trust me, she's not creeped out, bro.”
“More like creeped *on*.” His brother glances at him, and they have the same straight-nosed profile, the same jawline. 
“Twins.” I look back at my rescuer.
His smile broadens, hand tightening on my waist. “Nice to finally see your face, Sparks.”
 MY REVIEW
Reading reverse harems is an an obsession I just can't kick. Matter of fact who would want to? The first work I've read of Lyn Forester was Beneath a Halo-Sky and I soon after that fell in love with her work. House of glass is no different. If you're looking for love, suspenseful thrills, and an awesome read highly recommend this one guys! Now I just have to find the patience for book 2...

REVIEW: Everlasting Flame by Kate Anderson

Everlasting Flame (The Tainted Souls Trilogy Book 1)


THE BOOK IS FREE ON AMAZON! I REPEAT IT IS FREE!

~REVIEW~
I cried, I laughed, cried some more, was shocked, was hurt, then smiled then cried. This book had so many feels. I'm currently an emotional wreck right now. I don't want to reveal any spoilers but I will say this usually in a story you know who your villains are and you know who the good guys are and it's predictable. The bad guy usually comes out when the heroine is at her lowest and she's forced to take action. After reading Everlasting Flame, I'm questioning my sanity! Nobody is who they seem. The bad guys are all bad and the good guys well they definetly tow the line of borderline good and bad. Katelyn Anderson has managed to astound me I'm an emotional wreck but I'm happy like what the heck is that! It's not too often that I'm thrown that many surprises in a book. My attention never wavered after chapter one I enjoyed every second of Everlasting Flame my only regret is not picking this up sooner!
