Pages: 336

Rating: 5/5

Ohmysweetgoodness this was an absolutelly brilliant book! I mean I was laughing and scowling...and giggling, which is so unlike me! I loved this book so much and you must MUST read it!
Nat is marked but she wears contacts to conceal what she is as she works for a casino as a blackjack dealer. Pretty sweet gig till she realized that the stone another coworker gave her is dangerous in the wrong hands. When that coworker is killed she knows she must flee or risk sharing the same fate.
So she enlist the help of Wes and his men to get her over the fence and to 'the Blue'. They don't know that is where she is heading but they suspect since it is everyone's dream to find 'the Blue', but it's just a myth. No one actually believes in it anymore.
Together they encounter hunters, polarbears, soldiers, Thrillers, and pirates, only to evade capture each time. Nat and Wes begin to grow attached even after he discovers she is marked. (Awww how sweet!) They meet some people who were stranded in a sinking ship and one of them is marked while the other are smallmen (no joke, that's what they call them!).
When pirates capture them all they are forced into cells to await the auction block. Wes and Nat form a plan but when the captain of the ship learns the way to the Blue it is up to Nat to stop him. After all it was what she was born to do.
Will she be able to come to grips with what she is? Who will suffer in the end? What will happen to Nat and Wes? Will they really reach the Blue?
Ahhh I loved it and though I pretty much guessed what was going to happen I still enjoyed myself! It is a must read! No joke! Bohobooknerd you had better read this book and get back to me! :D

The Dark God's Bride Trilogy, #1 Review

Title: The Dark God's Bride

Author: Dahlia L. Summers

Book: (The Dark God's Bride, #1)

Pages: 210

Rating: 5/5

This was a free book and I must say that after reading this that I am now hooked. I have now fallen madly in love with an evil fictional character. This was a brilliantly written book and though the other two books weren't free I didn't mind at all they were worth it!
Amara has friends and a mother who cares deeply about her. Oh yeah her friends are demons and her foster mother is Lucifer's immortal bride. She has everything that she's ever wanted but the one thing that she can't contain is her curiosity.
Noctis (AKA Summit but prefers Noctis) has been trapped in darkness for a very long time and now he's out and seeking revenge on the one who put him there. Lucifer. Wanting to make him pay he tries to kidnap what he thinks is Lucifer's mortal bride Kali. Instead he takes Amara by accident.
She keeps up the charade to protect the only woman who ever took care of her and though she is scared of him she can't help her nature to fight. He tries and tries to scare her into submission but nothing he throws at her scares her. He likes the little mortal for her courage more than he wants. Still he believes that she is Kali so therefore she is off limits for him.
Amara manages to escape twice but he always seems to find her so her foster brother's other half (Lana) tries to save her only to be thwarted by Noctis who takes her to the realm of Heaven (or something akin to that). When she almost dies he saves her. She doesn't mean to but they end know...together. (*cough*sex*cough*). That is when he discovers that she isn't who she claims to be doesn't upset him. What does is when she flees with Lana to safety because she fears for her life.
Him trying to track her down pretty much sums up the end of the book but of course since there is a second...and a third book you know the story has to go on. Thank goodness! :D Give it a read!

About The Author

Not much to say. I was born in 1989 and I currently live in Kentucky with my family. I write as a hobby to relieve stress and for the pure enjoyment of the ride. My preferred writing style is first person present tense, or third person, omniscient. My favorite genres to write about are Romance, Fantasy, Paranormal, and Mythology.I write as though I am the reader. I just let the story flow through me and let my imagination breathe life to the characters. I allow the characters to develop their own consciousness and take charge of their own lives while I play the role of the spectator. Every time I sit in front of my computer, a little more of the story unfurls.I'm so excited to share these stories with you!

My Boyfriend Merlin Review

Title: My Boyfriend Merlin

Author: Priya Ardis

Book: (My Merlin, #1)

Pages: 305

Rating: 4.5/5

Seriously my expectations for this book were not that high but I was happy to find that it really was a great book! I loved it so much despite the love triangle with the two brothers and the girl (Ryan).
Ryan has had a hectic life. First her mother dies and now she has just lost her soon to be sister to a dragon. The only reason she survives is because of Matt (she has a major crush on him) turns out to be a wizard. So now she is still an orphan and her soon to be brother are in danger from gargoyles.
The one thing in a string of messed up stuff. A stone with a sword falls out of the sky, a dragon attack, wizards, and gargoyles that can take the form of humans. Now she and her almost brother Grey are taken, along with other candidates, to England where they will learn to deffend themselves against magic. She also discovers that Matt is the Merlin from stories. The one who helped King Arthur. Why didn't he tell her sooner??? When someone tries and fails to kill Ryan she and Vane (Matt/Merlin's brother) hatch a plan that goes wrong and threatens to kill many of the other candidates.
They all make it out safely but now the true test begins when they are taken to the stone so they can attempt to pull Excallibur free. The candidates (even the gargoyle candidates) are sucked into another dimmension and it is up to Ryan to figure out how to get out. When she does she quickly realizes that she has to remain behind. She does so willingly though she is giving up the love she holds for both Merlin and Vane.
Can she pull the sword from the stone? At what cost to herself? Will the war rage on? Do the traitors face punishment? Who will conquer?
Dramatic much? I thought so too but i couldn't help myself...the book was free! What was I supposed to do? NOT read it? Are you out of your mind?! I really did enjoy this book though the title still makes me laugh.

About The Author

I love books of all kinds—but especially the gooey ones that make your nose leak and let your latte go cold. My writing comes from a childhood of playing too much She-Ra and watching too much Spock and reading way too much fairy-tales, fantasies, detective stories, romances... the list goes on. (When Belle gasped at the library the Beast gave her, so did I! Color me with library envy.) I started penning my first book at sixteen, writing in long notebooks on train rides in India. A hopeless romantic, I'm also a longtime member of RWA (Romance Writer's of America).

Accidentally In Love With...A God? Review

Title: Accidentally In Love With...A God?

Author: Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Book: (Accidentally Yours, #1)

Pages: 294

Rating: 5/5

Even though I had to buy this book on my Kindle I couldn't really force myself to regret it because I loved the book...though the ending kind of pissed me off. But whatever, it just means there will have to be another book with the same characters in it. No big deal.
Emma had had a semi normal life. She has friends, she's very smart, she has a job...the only thing that makes her different is the fact that she has a man's voice in her head. To top it off he won't let her date without invading her mind once again. When she is hit by a taxi he saves her and tells her that she can free him from his prison. The catch? She has to fly to Mexico and search the jungle for the place where he is held captive. Will she do as he asks? Of course, anything to get rid of the voice in her head.
Guy (that's what she calls him and he likes it so he keeps the name) is the God of War and Death who was tricked and in turn stuck between worlds withing water for over seventy years. The only thing he loves are the conversations he has with Emma. He truly does like her but he knows he can't have her because it would kill her. When she manages to release him from his prison he takes her someplace safe so that can look for the other trapped Gods. He realizes that without her he can't free them so he heads back to find his home destroyed and Emma in the arms of one of the men he charged with protecting her.
She is attracted to Guy and he to her but she grows mad when it seems like he rejects her. She doesn't understand because he doesn't tell her anything. But when he is once again stuck between worlds she goes back to Mexico to try and save him only to find out her one friend (the guard) is a traitor. With Guy's brother now holding her captive (he also happens to be her grandfather but Guy isn't really related to him which is good! phew!) she will either have to become his woman...or die like the rest.
Guy and his sister escape from the trap and with Guy's men at his side they save Emma and try to escape before the men realize what has happened to their master.
Will Emma live? What about the other Gods? Will Guy and she finally be able to consume their love for each other? What's the surprise twist at the end? Well you'll just have to read it and find out! XD
It was quite a shocking end...I think so anyway! Feel free to comment if you feel differently! :D I love a good argument...or challenge!
