I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn't doing bossy, and I like sweet. Then it all shattered. Kidnapped. Starved. Beaten. I was alone and fighting to survive. When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong. *Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years. This is a love story with some dark elements. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story.

ARC REVIEW-MAGIC ACADEMY BY JILLIAN KEEP

My rating: 3.25 out of 5 stars

"I would see the world burn for you, Firi, and judge it worthy."

~Varuj

***Please note, the book was gifted to me by the author(s) in exchange for an honest review***

Firia is a human sorceress aspiring to be admitted into an academy to nurture her craft. Unfortunately, with the exception of her father, no one believes she is worthy of such an honor. She is, after all a mere human and a humans life span isn't long enough to learn all that is needed to be considered truly powerful, worthy. Determined to prove them all wrong, Firia, aka Firi, tests her powers that results in a bit more than expected and he, a demon, goes by the name of Varuj.

Varuj is the ultimate, love to hate/lust type of male lead. In many ways, I felt this should have been more his story than Firi's. He exploded onto the scene immediately and held my attention to the point where his absence, although brief, was hard felt and stunted the pace of the book. I almost didn't know what to do with myself as the story continued. The feel of it changed, although it was necessary given our other male lead who is the polar opposite of Varuj.  Mae'lin is sweet and unassuming, he's innocent and shy. Our heroine has a tough choice to make and the author does a great job "selling" each of them. It's a pick your flavor sort of thing but with dire consequences. With a little dose of jealousy and all hell breaks loose!

I can't say that I'm in love with the cover. That may very well be due to my obsession with Varuj. I almost NEED to see him on the cover! lol The cover also has a bit of a YA (Young Adult) feel to it, which is a bit misleading. This is New Adult Paranormal Romance Erotica (phew, that's a mouthful!) There is cursing, blazing sex scenes and some dark elements that hovers over that line.

There is also a great supporting cast that I hope we get to know more about as this series continues. I'm especially curious about her father. He's a simple man, of whom wants much more for his only child and offered an astounding sacrifice for her to live a better life than he had provided for her. They aren't high in society and there is often not much to eat in their home but he is a great father and I teared up during a very touching father/daughter moment. Firi's constant talk of "being along" and "unwanted" drove me up the wall. Someone please this girl, quality verses quantity! Also, everything and everyone (ahem) felt "right" and "natural"  which for me made Firi a bit flighty.

 I can't say I'm sold on the heroine, and some repetitive terms were a bit off putting. I did, however, enjoy the world that was created and those, both the good and the evil, that will surely make the rest of the series a bumpy ride!

PROMO-BROKEN TRUTH BY BETH ASHWORTH

 
 

Broken Truth Blog Tour

Beth Ashworth

 
 
 




Book Synopsis


Life for Charlotte (Charlie) Harris couldn’t be any better at this moment in time. She has her dream job, she has the extremely wealthy knight in shining armour and she has the best friends a girl could ever ask for. On paper, the beautiful world unfolding at her feet almost appears too good to be true for a working class girl from Manchester right?

But what happens when you gloss over the statistics and realise that the happy bubble you have been living in for the past fifteen months has all been a twisted, torturous path of lies? What if you realised that the person you loved wasn’t who they claimed to be any longer?

With the once sacred and happy memories now turned into hatred and despair, Charlie must now follow her instincts to either forget her past and move on or force the hand that holds the cards to her life to reshuffle the deck before it leads onto the twisted future that lies in store.

What will she choose?

Can she forgive and forget for the only man her heart has ever loved?
 
 



 

Excerpt One:

“I know you’re watching me, Baby.” The groggy sound of his voice startled her somewhat.
Composing herself, Charlie smiled. “No, I’m not.”

He grinned sleepily before brilliant blue eyes opened and met her stare. “I think you are,” he murmured.
Her heart began to flutter repeatedly as their eyes continued to stare at one another. It was always like this between them, this playful yet sizzling chemistry that Charlie hoped they would never lose.  “So what are you going to do about it then?” she challenged with a smirk.

Raising his eyebrows slightly, he gave her a look that practically melted her insides to a puddle of goo. Licking her lips seductively, Charlie continued tracing her fingers across his stomach, enjoying the feel of his skin blazing beneath her touch.
“Are you teasing me, Baby?” he asked with a hint of amusement. Lifting both of his arms to rest behind his head, Charlie watched as he tensed the muscles in his abdomen, defining the already ridged muscles further.

She knew he was playing dirty, but she also knew that she could play dirtier. It was definitely time for her to up her game she decided as she removed her hand from his body and placed it on her left thigh. Very gently, she ran her fingertips from the top of her leg to the bottom. His eyes widened as he watched her fingers pursue an unrelenting path over her soft skin until she stopped at the juncture of her thighs.

Excerpt Two:

“Careful,” Callum said as he closed the space between them and placed his hands on her shoulders to steady her balance. He flicked his eyes up and down the length of her naked body, lingering unashamedly at the soft swells of her breasts. “I missed you,” he murmured huskily.
Even standing underneath the hot water of the shower, Charlie couldn’t help the way her nipples began to harden. She was unable to control the reactions of her body around Callum, so she had just learnt to embrace it.

 “Your fucking tits are amazing,” Callum groaned as he stroked his hands down from her shoulders to cup her breasts. He squeezed them firmly in his hands before brushing the tips of his thumbs over her rosy, hardened peaks. Closing her eyes, Charlie bit down on her lower lip. “You like that?” he breathed as he continued to tease and knead her breasts.
Removing one hand from her chest, Callum firmly gripped the nape of Charlie’s neck and lowered his lips down to hers in one smooth movement. She closed her eyes and moaned softly as he sucked and nipped at her bottom lip.

The hot spray from the shower continuously pounded onto her skin, leaving her body feeling extremely sensitive. She gasped as a slight tremor ran the length of her body, which Callum used to slip his tongue inside of her mouth.
Meeting his tongue stroke for stroke, Charlie found her hands tracing across the well defined muscles of Callum’s stomach. Her fingertips dipped into each ridged groove before her hand found the small trail of hair that headed south. Brushing her fingers gently over the line of light and fluffy hair from his navel, she slowly crept further down until she reached his warm and pulsing shaft.

A TOUCHED GIRL SERIES NEW COVER REVEAL PLUS AMAZON GIFTCARD GIVEAWAY!!!

A Touched Girl Series Cover Reveal Blog Hop

Soul Walker and Soul Bender have brand new covers, and we are celebrating!

Published: December 9, 2012
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Goodreads Summary: 
"I need to get you to the hospital." He was taking responsibility for me. Only my parents had that job. I stretched my hand out in protest, but the lack of depth perception had my trembling fingers grazing his overheated neck. I swore his whole body shook.

When five-year-old Anna Pierce is offered a chance to have nightmare-free nights for the small price of her voice, she jumps at it. Silence has to be better than all-consuming dreams about blood and death and fangy monsters. The bargain she strikes comes with a secondary benefit, visions of a person's future potential. The combination of visions and silence changes her very nature and soon she's diagnosed with autism. Twelve years of living in her head comes to a screeching halt the moment Peter Davis pulls her out of an icy river. 

Her new life has her twirling, tiptoeing, and crashing through unfamiliar territory, one filled with a cranky grandma, a knocked up cousin, an unpleasant cousin, a bunch of mostly good vampires, and the boy who rescued her.

To top it all off, the deal she made at five is no more. Anna is expected to talk, to figure out her resurfacing nightmares, and to control her ever-growing powers. And she'd better get it done soon because if the good vamps want a piece of a living, breathing Touched girl, the evil ones simply want. They'll take Anna for their very own.
Soul Walker is the first book in the Touched Girl Series. It's approximately 91,000 words.



Published: March 11, 2013
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Goodreads Summary:
How much can a soul take before it breaks? 

Anna Pierce has a vampire boyfriend, a driver's license, real friends for the first time since she was five, and now she faces one of her biggest challenges, senior year at a mostly all girls Catholic high school. Sure, she's a member of the talking crowd now, but she'll never be like everyone else. How can she when the first of her kind has camped out in her dreams? 

Little dead girl Emily decides Anna's destiny can wait no longer. It's time for this generation's Touched girl to hunt. Trained in a virtual dream landscape to destroy all in her path, Anna must choose between her destiny, the one beat into her on a nightly basis, and her legacy, the one instilled in her by her parents. 

Along the way, old enemies remain dutifully obsessed, new foes lurk in the shadows, and odd Little Duckie Anna Pierce sets out to be social.
