Book Review: The Crow Box

The Crow Box (The Shadow & Ink Series) by Nikki Rae

The small wooden box is dirty, the size of a human fist, and sealed with wax. When Corbin takes it upon herself to clean it and break the seal, a voice she has tried to ignore gathers strength. Shadows play on the walls at night, and with a family history of mental illness, Corbin fears the worst. But the voice tells her it is real. That its name is Six and it will prove it in time. 

Drawn to this mysterious entity, Corbin isn't sure what to believe and the line between reality and her imagination blurs more every day. 

Some doors should not be opened; can this one be closed.

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW

The Crow Box is a little kind of weirdly, that's the best term to describe it, It's not a bad thing I know Nikki loves to write weirdly dark things. The character Corbin (which is a very interesting name for a girl), she starts hearing voices . . . well actually A voice.  

There's some interesting connection between the Voice and black feathers? 

Corbin is not one of those average girls most people read about, she pretty much keeps to herself and keeps her home life pretty in secrets. Her mom has a Mental condition and throughout the book Corbin starts to hear a voice and starts wondering if she's becoming like her mom. 

The voice named Six, is some unexplained form is the best way I can say it. I'm still not sure what he is or who he is, what's his purpose and what's his interest in Corbin? All bunch of questions that still leaves me in thoughts

Towards the end of the book, something happens Corbin she gets lost into her own delusional/hallucinations state and then the Voice is near but sounds more real than a mist of a form that leaves behind black feathers. 

I give this 4 Cat Paws Up,  I like the weirdly factor Nikki put into this book. 

Here's a couple Teasers of The Crow Box

Book Review: Wolf Bait

Wolf Bait (Wolf Cove #1) by Nina West

Wolf Bait (Wolf Cove, #1)When life turns to hell, most people talk about running away. Abbi Mitchell actually does it. Determined to escape her humiliating heartbreak and her overbearing mother, Abbi takes a summer job at a resort in Alaska. It's supposed to be four months of snow-capped mountains, peaceful wilderness, and figuring out if she should wait for her lifelong sweetheart to come back, as he has promised he'll do.

Instead, it's Henry Wolf.

Owner of the luxury hotel chain, Henry Wolf is cool and composed, successful with everything he touches, and undeniably beautiful. And for some reason Abbi can't fathom, he wants her—the farm girl from small town, USA with no corporate experience—as his personal assistant.

Abbi scrambles to meet his professional demands while she battles her growing attraction to him. Physical feelings she shouldn't have because he's her boss, because she's way out of her league with him, and because they'll never be reciprocated.

Until they are.

Will Abbi be able to let go of herself—her values, her dreams, and her inhibitions—to give him all that he's demanding of her?


Published November 16th 2015

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW 

TO be honest, I read this like last month but due to my lack of wanting to Review that Wolf Bite was just sitting waiting to be review.  I love the story so it wasn't like I didn't like it or love it otherwise that would be more difficult to write the review. 

I also thought this was a werewolf book as well, can you figure out why I thought that?

Abbi grew up in a much devoted christian family, however when she learns of her now ex cheated on her. She couldn't continue on with the relationship, although everyone else wanted her to give him a second chance. to forgives his sins so to speak. 

Abbi decided that she wanted to go on an adventure by taking a job for a resort out in Alaska, surrounded by breath-taking views and an breath-taking, sexual-driven, masculine man named Henry Wolf the owner of Wolf Hotels establishment.  Although Abbi doesn't stand a virgin chance with him, Henry was determine to learn about her. 

Wolf Bait explores sexual fantasies that Abbi never had dream of, including losing her virginity card but can she keeps a separate relationship between her BOSS Henry and Henry that got her heart pounding? 

But Henry got some secrets of his own . . .

This was a great start off for the series, the ending was just too much! Like where will Abbi stand now? Now that she learn a truth that just may put her job at jeopardy and possibly lose her job at Wolf Cove. 

I give this 4.5 Cat Paws Up! I can't wait for book two Wolf Bite.

Book Review: What a Werewolf Wants

What a Werewolf Wants (San Franciso Wolf Pack #3) by Kristin Miller

What a Werewolf Wants (San Francisco Wolf Pack)A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...

They may not be the perfect match…But they’re having fun.
Going to the chapel, and her sister is going to get married…no matter what.

Josie Cole might be unlucky in love, but she’s a pro at matching other couples. When her sister gets married to the man of her dreams, it’ll be Cole Matchmaking Services one-hundredth match, and secure Josie a television special that would boost business.

Private investigator–and werewolf–Ryder McManus doesn’t believe in marriage. Catching cheating spouses has taught him there is no such thing as happily ever after. But then he never expected to find his fated mate, Josie, at his best friend’s wedding festivities.

When Josie and Ryder are together, the chemistry heats up. While he’s trying to stop the wedding, she’ll do whatever it takes to give the couple a dream day. But the secret he’s trying to expose might just ruin everything…

Released January 11th, 2016

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW

What a Werewolf Wants is Kristin's (6th werewolf book), third in the San Francisco Pack.
An Stubborn Ryder McManus thinks he knows everything about relationships, love and marriage. He believes that they are not meant to last based on all his works of trailing lying boyfriends, cheating fiances and unfaithful husbands.

Looking for your perfect match? Josie Cole is the ultimate matchmaker, she just recently paired up her 100th successful match which happens to be her sister and everything about this 100th match was going to be film. It's the kind of promotion her successful business need however if she is such a wonderful matchmaker why hadn't she found her one true match?

Both Josie and Ryder have this instant connection upon their first meet.

As you know Kristin's werewolves books deals with a wolf finding his luminary, what made Ryder so different from all the other male wolves she written was his determination that he never wants to get marry, have children or find love. Ryder believes he knows everything about marriage and relationships but I think he's never really had one either.

Josie on the otherhands has no problems with having a relationship but she got so caught up in her business that she never set out there. But when she meets Ryder, she felt that connection that she does when pairing up couples.

The most funny part of this book was the big Wolf reveal, Ryder's best friend Mitch who marrying Josie's sister gets himself so drunk that he shifted in the back of a bar alley. I guess one of the reasons why Mitch "Carelessly" did this was because Ryder kept pushing and nagging on him that he had to tell Carrie the truth about what he is. Again Ryder wanted to show Mitch what he saw in his eyes about marriage, but clearly that backfires.

Even the coded conversation that Carrie and Josie had while being film was hilarious, I was almost afraid that Liza was going to pick up on the fact that they might not be talking about a dog. Both Josie and her sister Carrie agreed to be turned, I love Carrie's and Mitch Idea but at the same time I enjoyed Josie and Ryder's idea just doing it after being together for a couple months.

I really have to give this 5 Cat's Paws, everything that I said in my review reflects why I gave it five Cat's Paws.

Now I just wonder  . . . WILL Kristin write MORE??? I already sent her a message about something so I guess I'll see what's she say! Also if you haven't seen some of the posts on facebook and Twitter (I tried to do it on both), I've written a Fan-Fic story on Silas Wilder the big bad wolf from Gone with the Wolf. So far 10 chapters are up, and I'll try to upload more when I get the time.

Where I'll be


I know I lack blogging lately, but sadly that's only going to continue. I'll be back to school in a week and I'll be doing other things where I can't dedicated myself to blogging. Honestly if you want to know the real truth, I haven't enjoyed blogging like I use to before way back when I first started.

I think part of that is that I took blogging way too serious when it doesn't need to be and to find actual time to do blogging is another problem. When I did my last book review of the year, it was surprisingly painless. I could actually put down the words.

Now that could because I love the book or it could be when I started the review, I started it when I was about half way done and then finished it when I finished the book. I think I'll take that approach when I reading books.

I'll try to take part in challenges and participate in blog tours if I am accepted. Otherwise I'll mostly try to read and since I set my reading challenge at 63 books this year. Kara from Great Imagination made me feel kind of not challenging myself so she was doing 125 books and I met her halfway with 63. Now if I fail, I fail but I'll know in the end I'll have read some amazing books.

I'm also pretty absent on Twitter, I got the darn app on my phone/Ipad but either one or the other will get the notifications and not the other when I have set it up to doing on both devices. So I hope to stay in the Twitter universe while I'm gone from blogging because how else will I hear about new books?

Let's Ring In the NEW YEAR!!!!
