Book Review: East of Redemption

East of Redemption (Love on the edge #2) By Molly Lee

East of Redemption (Love on the Edge #2)
Easton Wells has spent years burying his guilt by digging up some of the world’s most renowned treasures while surviving the dangerous terrains in which they’re located—all captured for television. When his producers threaten to axe the show, he has no choice but to turn to the last person he still trusts—the girl he left behind.

Rain Walker has made a name for herself documenting wild and endangered animals, and the last voice she expects to hear while shooting in South Africa is Easton’s. He’s more gorgeous than she remembers, but the pain in her heart is as fresh as ever. They’d once planned on spending the rest of their lives together, but after her father’s tragic death while on expedition in Israel with him, Easton bailed on their future together without an explanation. It’s been nine years, and yet the intense love they shared seems only a moment ago.

When he asks her to film his latest treasure hunt, Rain wants to turn him down instantly. But when he explains it’s to the same cave that swallowed her father, she can’t say no. She wants to experience the last place her father was alive, and she’s beyond curious about what happened to the boy she used to love.

They’ve got two weeks to locate a treasure that’s been lost for centuries, or Easton will lose the one thing in his life he’s come to depend on. As their old passion is reignited—and dark secrets uncovered—they face the extreme terrain of the mountain range that threatens them at every turn. As more than the wildlife and sharp drop-offs tries to kill them, Rain starts to question if the legendary treasure they seek—the same one her father had died trying to unearth—is truly meant to be found, or if some things, including their feelings for each other, are better left buried.

Serial Review: Dominating Red

Dominating Red (A Dark and Dirty Tale #2) by Kristin Miller

Dominating Red (A Dark and Dirty Tale #2)In part two of this Dark and Dirty Tale serial from New York Times and USA best-selling author Kristin Miller, Red has two hot alphas in pursuit. But which one should she choose?

Lukas, the Alpha of the Arcana wolf pack, has chosen to seduce me in his private chamber before I join his pack and declare a mate. But Lukas doesn’t intend to rush things. A tantalizing game of cat and mouse uncovers my dark desires, and no matter how I try to resist, I’m lost in him.

Although the sex is so good I forget my own name, I can’t deny there’s still something missing…Reaper, the Omega’s eldest grandson.

He swept me off my feet before meeting Lukas, and I can’t get him out of my mind. And now that Lukas has taken me, Reaper is more protective than ever. I'm torn, but I have to choose—the one who has captured my heart or the one who possesses my body. And there is more than passion at stake—lives hang in the balance.

Get ready for scorching hot Alphas, a spitfire heroine, and a breathless cliffhanger ending.

The Dark and Dirty tale series is best enjoyed in this reading order.

Book #1 Desiring Red
Book #2 Dominating Red
Book#3 Dangerously Red – Coming July 17th.

Where we left off was Ivy getting hooded by guards, Reaper sneaks out from Ivy's room just beforehand and Lukas making a decision of which Pre-shifer female wolf  he would like to stake claims on. 

It's no secret that Ivy isn't used to having two hot alpha males, but how does she handle the fact that her heart wants both? 

For the second "act" we see more of Lukas side, BOY!!! he's got bad boy attitude all over him.  He's also very possessive but what he doesn't like is that he can't claim the pre-shifter of his choice because it has to be her choice. But what really drove him over the edge is that the sweet pre-shifter that he has his eyes on, someone else has eyes for too. 

For the most part of second act we see more into Lukas side however I get a sense that he's hiding more than he's sharing to the omega. Reaper is still feeling like he doesn't deserve to have a mate, but he can't deny the instant chemistry he has with IVY and now he has to worry about his cousin taking IVY.


Can Ivy chose?


While Dominating Red really focus on exploring and learning about Lukas side I'm a definitely a Reaper fan, I think it's because he showcases emotions although he doesn't want to show it but also he's not claiming anything of his.

I give this four Cat Paws, I'm sorry I'm just not clicking with Lukas! There's just something about him that rubs me the wrong way.

Description:

Maddie is beyond done with her cousin Genesis’s entitled and shallow entourage. Genesis is so over Miami’s predictable social scene with its velvet ropes, petty power plays, and backstabbing boyfriends.

While Maddie craves family time for spring break, Genesis seeks novelty—like a last-minute getaway to an untouched beach in Colombia. And when Genesis wants something, it happens.

But paradise has its price. Dragged from their tents under the cover of dark, Genesis, Maddie, and their friends are kidnapped and held for ransom deep inside the jungle—with no diva left behind. It all feels so random to everyone except Genesis. She knows they were targeted for a reason. And that reason is her.

Now, as the hours count down, only one thing’s for certain: If the Miami hostages can’t set aside their personal problems, no one will make it out alive.

A Note from Rachel Vincent

In my upcoming YA suspense 100 HOURS, Genesis and her cousin Maddie come from opposite ends of the privilege spectrum, but when they wind up kidnapped for ransom during spring break in Colombia and have no one else to count on, they discover they have more in common than either of them thought.

If you’ve read any of my previous releases, 100 HOURS probably seems like a departure for a Rachel Vincent book. And that’s what I thought, back when it was just me and an idea. But as I wrote the story and got to know the characters, I realized that even though this book is set in the Colombian jungle and these characters have no supernatural abilities, 100 HOURS is very much a book about the themes that draw me in over and over. Survival. Family friction and loyalty. High-stakes pulse-racing action. Twists, turns, secrets, and revelations. Girls who can fend for themselves—and for anyone else who needs help.

http://i.istockimg.com/file_thumbview_approve/17057016/6/stock-illustration-17057016-twister-cartoon.jpg

Tonight we had an Tornado warning in our area as an rotating storm was going to come through, my dad francitally said grab all personal items Non-replaced items (which I had already did) but then he had to bring up about my books.

https://media.giphy.com/media/124MztOLkQuapW/giphy.gif 

My books!!!! OH my books!!!! 

If you only had an half hour to gather your books how would you choose???? Well basically I just grabbed some books from a few of my favorite authors and that their books. Then I thought wait my scrapbook of all those SWAGs and even the one I haven't did Swags yet. MY GOD!!!!  

But I kind of really just grabs the top two favorite authors I love. ESPECIALLY the books that I can't find in the stores anymore and I would have to pay quite the money to buy it online. Then I basically grab my other favorite authors that I would hate to lose and plus they were pretty much in one spot anyways. 

So tell me how would you pick? Could you pick? Or could you come up with a different idea?

Releases of 2016

Anticipating releases for the remainder of 2016,

I know it's been awhile since I've participated in the Top Tuesdays Meme but sadly I've lack out of blogging but I'm trying to gradually work on it little by little.

1. Betrayals by Kelley Armstrong; while I haven't read Deceptions yet but I plan on buying Betrayals even if I haven't read Deceptions. I love the Cainsville series a lot and is intrigue by the folk lords and folktales.

Betrayals (Cainsville, #4)When Olivia's life exploded--after she found out she was not the adopted child of a privileged Chicago family but of a notorious pair of convicted serial killers--she found a refuge in the secluded but oddly welcoming town of Cainsville, Illinois. Working with Gabriel Walsh, a fiendishly successful criminal lawyer with links to the town, she discovered the truth about her parents' crimes in an investigation that also revealed the darker forces at work in the place that had offered her a haven. As if that wasn't enough, she also found out that she, Gabriel and her biker boyfriend Ricky were not caught in an ordinary sort of love triangle, but were hereditary actors in an ancient drama in which the elders of Cainsville and the mysterious Huntsmen who opposed them had a huge stake.

Now someone is killing street kids in the city, and the police have tied Ricky to the crimes. Setting out with Gabriel's help to clear Ricky's name, Olivia once again finds her own life at risk. Soon the three are tangled in a web of betrayals that threatens their uneasy equilibrium and is pushing them toward a hard choice: either they fulfill their destinies by trusting each other and staying true to their real bonds, or they succumb to the extraordinary forces trying to win an eternal war by tearing them apart.
 



Hardcover, 496 pages
Expected publication: August 4th 2016 by Sphere 
 
 

2.  The Flame Never Dies by Rachel Vincent; Have you Read The Stars Never Rise??? I can't wait to dive into this world again.

The Flame Never Dies (The Stars Never Rise, #2)For fans of Cassandra Clare and Richelle Mead comes the unputdownable sequel to The Stars Never Rise, a book Rachel Caine, author of the bestselling Morganville Vampires series, called “haunting, unsettling, and eerily beautiful.”

ONE SPARK WILL RISE. Nina Kane was born to be an exorcist. And since uncovering the horrifying truth—that the war against demons is far from over—seventeen-year-old Nina and her pregnant younger sister, Mellie, have been on the run, incinerating the remains of the demon horde as they go.

In the badlands, Nina, Mellie, and Finn, the fugitive and rogue exorcist who saved her life, find allies in a group of freedom fighters. They also face a new threat: Pandemonia, a city full of demons. But this fresh new hell is the least of Nina’s worries. The well of souls ran dry more than a century ago, drained by the demons secretly living among humans, and without a donor soul, Mellie’s child will die within hours of its birth.

Nina isn’t about to let that happen . . . even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice. 


Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: August 16th 2016 by Delacorte Press 
 
 
 
3. Family Jewels by Denise Grover Swank; Sadly with the Rose Gardners Mysteries having to be "concluded" in 36 and a half motives, it kind of force Denise to start writing a different approach with Rose and thus a spin-off.  Sorry no cover or release date yet. 

4. Bad Blood by Jennifer Lynn Barnes; I love love this series so much! I really hope that people will continue to want more just like I do and that Jennifer can continue to write more. 

Bad Blood  (The Naturals, #4)
When Cassie Hobbes joined the FBI's Naturals program, she had one goal: uncover the truth about her mother's murder. But now, everything Cassie thought she knew about what happened that night has been called into question. Her mother is alive, and the people holding her captive are more powerful—and dangerous—than anything the Naturals have faced so far.

As Cassie and the team work to uncover the secrets of a group that has been killing in secret for generations, they find themselves racing a ticking clock.

New victims. New betrayals. New secrets.

When the bodies begin piling up, it soon becomes apparent that this time, the Naturals aren't just hunting serial killers.
