The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld #7) [Amun & Haidee] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I can't believe this is the last book for 2013! YAY :) But I"m happy that this is the last taste of the year. I LOVED this book. It was built in a beautiful way. Even though we had the concept of a Warrior with "the enemy" or with someone they suppose to hate or mistrust, this book was somehow different because of the way both Amun and Haidee were presented and the way they learned who the other person are.

The Darkest Lie (Lords of the Underworld #6) [Gideon & Scarlet] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

OK, wow! after the previous book I was really hoping it's not a beginning of a downfall, also considering each book is longer then the previous. This book was pretty long! but I read it in less than three days. It was packed with a lot of action and sub plots. 

Main plot is Gideon, keeper of Lies finds he can't keep himself apart from Scarlet, Keeper of Nightmares, the one he wished (in the previous book) he could meet (even though he didn't know she actually existed..) and after she is captured by the Lords he is surprised that as it seems she is his long lost wife. The one he didn't know he had or couldn't even recall meeting.. Though looking at her the first time he is shocked that her eyes and lips had haunted him for years and so he tattooed them on his body, as well as the same tattoo she has on her lower back saying "To part is to die" surrounded by (feminine :P) flowers. Why can't he remember her? being with her? marring her? he is determined to question her until he receives his answers (prepare for a little bit of a mind fuck about that :)).

The Darkest Passion (Lords of the Underworld #5) [Aeron & Olivia] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is the 5th book in the Lords of the Underworld series this one telling the story of the tattooed Aeron keeper of Wrath and Olivia the [Fallen] Angel. 

Aeron has always been the guy who saves others, taking care of others, he was never one to show his feelings or his weaknesses. So when Olivia first "appears" meaning, when her presence is known to him he does his best to threaten her since her presence inflict pain upon Legion the she-demon who followed him when he was chained near hell and has become not only his comfort but he also considers her family, like the daughter he never had (and will never have).

Heart of Darkness: The Darkest Angel (Lords of the Underworld #4.5) [Lysander & Bianka] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is a short novella from the Lords of the Underworld series, unlike the previous 2 novellas in the series that had no real connection to the main story, this one features a character we met in the previous book of the series - The Darkest Whisper - Bianka who is Gwen's sister and like her also a Harpy. 

Lasyter is an Elite Angel which means he is exactly what you'd imagine an Elite Angel to be - Gorgeous but as boring and righteous as anyone can get - which is the exact opposite to the mischievous Bianka who is most dangerous when she gets bored. which she does when he abducts her and placed her on his cloud as a prisoner.

The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld #4) [Sabin & Gwen] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

Another great book in the Lords of the Underworld series. These books just grow on me as I continue to read. I love the setting and the Lords, I loved that the Hunters are the way they are sorta like the religious fanatic kind who fail to see their own faults and the fact they choose to believe whatever they are taught to believe. Galen did a beautiful job there. I wonder how he can manipulate them to thinking he's an angel and not possessed by a demon. Doesn't he have the tattoo like the rest of them?

The Darkest Prison (Lords of the Underworld #3.5) [Atlas & Nike] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is a side novella to the Lords of the Underworld Series. The Lords are mentioned very briefly but nothing specific. You shouldn't read this one if you haven't read the 3rd book since there are two spoilers  SPOILER
Aside from that I don't think it matters when you read this one. So don't feel bad postponing it for later if you're eager to keep reading the next one of Sabin.

The Darkest Pleasure (Lords of the Underworld #3) [Reyes & Danika] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

There is nothing like a stormy wintery weekend to catch up on my reading. Lately I haven't been reading as frequently as before. Things keep getting in my way. But as it seems the weather and this amazing series has brought me back to myself :)

Another great book in the series. I really enjoyed this one. I admit it gets a little bit too mushy for me in the end (and I can't get why they are so eager to bring on kids into the charade - aka Maddox and Ashlyn) But all in all it's a REALLY good series. It delivers exactly what it should - Action of the Paranormal staff and extraordinary Romance with Happily Ever After.

The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld #2) [Lucien & Anya] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

oh my, oh my, this one was de-li-sious! YUM YUM YUM all the way, funny and witty, full of action and a promise for more!

Anya is the goddess of Anarchy. We sorta met her on the previous book. She is the one who saved Ashlyn life (from the plague) and later on released Maddox from his curse.

From the first time she sees Lucien there's this spark she cannot ignore. Something about this serious (as in no humor serious) guy turns her on. and when he spots her at last (being transparent and not really there in their first encounters) he is SO attracted to her and can't believe she is attracted to his hideousness (his face and also part of his body is heavily scared)

Addicted by Charlotte Stein ~~~ ★ (DNF 48%) ~~~

I hate doing this.. but after thinking and re-thinking this I decided to write this review anyway...

First off let me start with a confession - I didn't finish the book. I'm about half way through (chapter 8 if that matters to someone..), I started reading this one little more than two weeks ago, I got to a third of the book before telling myself - this is it for me.. I'm NOT continuing.. Then I got to thinking, it's a short Novel - less than 200 pages I SHOULD finish it and see if it gets better or if I'm missing out something.. So yesterday I had an hour to read and I since I didn't want to start a new book I decided to give this one another try. No. It simply doesn't work for me. I CAN'T keep on reading..

The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) [Maddox & Ashlyn] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This one is going to be a loooong review and also will contain mild spoilers (which I'll "warn" about :))

First - I loved this book! I feel like it's been a while since my last PNR series, but actually it's only been a little more than 2 months from finishing the Midnight Breed series. It seems that no matter how much I enjoy reading "regular" romance books I always find myself missing a dab of supernatural in my reading. I yearn for those manly man creatures with inhuman strength and special abilities (and disabilities ;)) that simply doesn't exist in our world.

The Darkest Fire (Lords of the Underworld #0.5) [Geryon & Kadence] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is the first novella starting the Lords of the Underworld series. 
It's been a while since I read a Paranormal Romance book and I missed it! :) There is this limit of "fun" in "regular" romance books and since I started my reading fever with Fantasy books I find it fitting that I "grew into" the PNR genre. 

This is my first book by Gena Showalter and actually I"m not even sure what this series is about! :) I just got a really good recommendation on it and added it to my ever growing books to read.

Roman Holiday 3: Blindsided by Ruthie Knox ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

This novella is actually a whole book divided to 10 parts. Each part is about 40-60 pages long. The first 5 parts are released weekly from 11th of November till 9th of December while the 5 following parts will be released around March 2014.

Roman Holiday 2: Hitched by Ruthie Knox ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This novella is actually a whole book divided to 10 parts. Each part is about 40-60 pages long. The first 5 parts are released weekly from 11th of November till 9th of December while the 5 following parts will be released around March 2014. 

If you haven't read the first Roman Holiday installment - you shouldn't read my review of the second part... (Here is the review of the first one

My god I just laughed and laughed this one out.. my dog here was VERY annoyed - what should a dog do to have his precious evening nap WITHOUT all those shouts of laughter! Jeez! 

Roman Holiday 1: Chained by Ruthie Knox ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This novella is actually a whole book divided to 10 parts. Each part is about 40-60 pages long. The first 5 parts are released weekly from 11th of November till 9th of December while the 5 following parts will be released around March 2014. 

I have to say that though I do have some good qualities I'm definitely lacking in restraint and patience... So for me to be limited to 50 pages a week for a book I REALLY want to read ( = anything Ruthie writes..) isn't exactly how I like to run things.. On the other hand it does keep you on your toes and of course it might mean I will accomplish more per day since I won't be buried inside the book ignoring the world around me ;) all in all I think that this concept (starting with Truly on Wattpad which is still available for free till the end of the year) is interesting - I salute Ruthie for the unique idea!

Falling for the Ghost of You by Nicole Christie ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This one tells the story of Violet a teenage school girl who falls in love in practically the "(not only) American Dream" - he's gorgeous, he's rich, he's a little older than her (college guys are the hottest, right?), he's experienced with girls (but as always he's not the relationship kinda guy..) and as a bonus it seems that he's her soon to be step brother.. oh, his name is Zane (as a Cut & Run addict I clearly approve of the name :D)

Heating Up the Holidays - Play with Me by Lisa Renee Jones / Snowfall by Mary Ann Rivers / After Midnight by Serena Bell ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Play with Me by Lisa Renee Jones   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 

 This short novella tells the story of Kali - leaving her home in Texas to begin a new life in Vegas. In Vegas she meets Damion her new (too good looking) boss. Both Kali and Damion has a past that as Kali phrases - got them bruised but not broken - but nevertheless they keep their past from each other. Both of them don't easily trust other people. The passion between the two of them was making it VERY hard for them to work with each other but the both of them are determined to keep each other. Little by little they realize that together is the right call :)

Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls by Tellulah Darling ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

I SO wanted to love this book! but apparently it was a sort of disappointment. It's not that it wasn't good - This one is fun and funny, easy going and flowing book I finished in one day - It's just I'm thinking I'm not the right "crowd". I'll admit I'm "so and so" with YA books. In general I'm not very appreciative of teen ages.. So I guess I'm saying "It's me, not him (=the book)" ;)

Truly (New York #1) by Ruthie Knox ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I'm starting to consider I might be addicted to Ruthie's books.. I've read everything she published (except for the Roman Holiday which I bought and will be reading this weekend probably) and each novel make me realize how much I love reading her!

This book can be read for free till the end of the year through Wattpad (in the summer the book will be published regularly following 2 more books in the series). It's a really cool concept! When it started each week Ruthie published a few chapters till the ending of the novel (which was a little over a week ago). So you get the suspense of "what to come" each week.

Shock & Awe (Sidewinder #1) by Abigail Roux ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

A short steamy novella of Nick and Kelly and the starting of their relationship - also starting the new "spin-off" series to Cut & Run

Kelly was injured pretty bad in the last book of Cut & Run (Touch & Geaux). Nick takes him back to his home to take care of him. This is not something to surprise anyone it's just the way Sidewinder works and definitely how Nick works - he takes care of everyone. 

Nick recently "came out of the closet" admitting he is gay (or rather Bi) Kelly might have been surprised but he is mostly curious. Curious enough to ask Nick to kiss him just to "try it out". From there their violent attraction keeps on rising..

Driving Her Wils (Wilinski #3) [Steph & Patrick] by Meg Maguire ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~



Sadly, I didn't really like this one.. I LOVED the previous one (Taking Him Down) but here I just felt it wasn't "special" enough. The characters too plain. 

On the last book Rich mentions there is a new person to be joining the boxing club - Steph. She signed up to be an instructor after deciding to end her boxing carrier. Steph will be 30 soon, she has being boxing for years and she feels her age is catching up with her - she needs to start thinking about settling down - find someone that doesn't struggle with his income (she had enough financial problems growing up and as a female boxer she didn't earn a lot..) someone who isn't like all the other guys she used to date..

Curve Ball by Charlotte Stein ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

oh HOW MUCH I enjoyed this one.. 

I'm (still) on vocation, having time to read almost as I please but today started annoying continued to impossible and "ended" with wanting to be left alone. If only I could have done what I did today everytime THAT happens! :D I put on my bathing suit, took other swimming acessories, my kindle and a bottle of water. 3 hours later. I'm totally relaxed having swam a little but mostly comsumed this short novella. Came to my room feeling absolute bliss. Even had an epiphany - All I want in life can be expressed in these few sentences - Being left in peace to read, preferable not wearing much (= bathing suit)  on a comfortable chair enjoying the agreeable rays of sun (=not too hot) and reading of other (imaginary) people life, a life I would clearly wouldn't have (that without even mentioning vampires.. oops I just did... :D)

Taking Him Down (Wilinski #2) [Rich & Lindsey] by Meg Maguire ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

WOW! what a pleasure this one was! Though I liked the first one of Mercer and Jenna, I loved this one much more!

So we have Rich Estrada a YUM of a boxer but also a rising star. After a sucessful fight he is signed off, during the after party of the fight he and Lindsey share a very passionate kiss but it ends too quickly leaving the both of them with a memory they wish they could repeat but understand they can't.

Home for the Holidays (Night Huntress #6.5) by Jeaniene Frost ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This one is a short novella in the Night Huntress Series. If you have't read Jeaniene's post on the matter, she intended to write two more books in the Cat & Bones series (book 7+8) but after finishing this novella and preparing the next one she realized that this novella made a 8th book unnecessary since after book 7 she would finish what she had to write about them. 

In this novella, we are intruduced with a person from Bones's past that he wasn't aware of and also one that doesn't have good intensions for him and his friends. It's up to Cat, Ian and Denise to figure out what went wrong with their friends and loved ones and how to fix it.

Uncharted (On The Island #1.5) by Tracey Gravis-Graves ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is a short sequel novella of On The Island telling us of Owen, the guy who built the cabin Anna and T.J. found on the Island when they explored the island. 

Owen knocks on Anna and T.J.'s door to tell them his story and to apologize in his own way (I'm not going to tell you about what :)) he sits down and tells them how he arrived on the island and what happened to him while he was there.

His story is different from their story about day to night, while I see their story as a happy one even with all the difficulties they had, his story felt very very sad and lonely.

On The Island (On The Island #1) by Tracey Gravis-Graves ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I've read many Romance novels, a lot lately! But if I thought "I've read it all" - reading this one showed me that clearly I haven't!
  
This novel tells the story of Anna, a 30 years old school teacher who accepts a job for the summer to assist / help catch up a 16 years old kid who missed most of the previous due to having cancer. Anna isn't heired to teach him at home, oh no, she flys to the Maldives with him (the rest of the family arrived there a few days prior) to teach him there. Sounds cool, ha? Well it might have been if their plane didnt crush in the sea, where a lot of little islands make it impossible to find them, that's without mentioning the fact that the waters are filled with sharks..

After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse (Sookie Stackhouse #13.5) by Charlaine Harris ~~~ ½ ★ ~~~

This is the last book on the Southern Vampire Series, best known as "Sookie Stackhouse". 
I've read all books in the series, loved the first ones better than the last ones.
In my opinion, when the TV Show True Blood started Harris got alittle lost and started changing the characters in a way that matched the way the characters played in the show but meant that they stopped being true to themselves..

Unhinge the Universe by Aleksandr Voinov & L.A. Witt ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I've read a lot of books / stories and seen a lot of movies - both based on real events and fiction of World War II. To say "I've had enough" sounds a bit harsh (especially for a Jew) but in a way, after reading so much about it, hearing from relatives and people around me, I have the feeling that everything that had to be said - have been said.

Keeping Her (Losing It #1.5) [Bliss Edwards & Garrick Taylor] by Cora Carmack ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is a very romantic sweet story of Bliss and Garrick. It's about a year after they moved together to Philadelphia. on the table is their first meeting with Garrick's parents in London. They are both VERY stressed about it since Garrick's mother isn't a very agreeable person and in general both his parents didn't approve of him leaving London and pursuing his interest in acting.  

I guess I read this one in the "wrong order" since this book was published after Faking It (Losing It #2) but it doesn't matter because it doesn't mention any of Bliss's friends anyway.

Losing It (Losing It #1) [Bliss Edwards & Garrick Taylor] by Cora Carmack ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

I"m always at a loss on the first sentence... especially when the main character - Bliss - is SO much like me..
Well, she is like me in the sense that I always find myself embarrassing myself, doing something more clumsy than clumsy, being the most naive person in the group while no one really realizes it. 

So Bliss is a virgin. It's not like she never kissed a guy before or made up with one, it's just she never actually had sex with anyone. and at the age of 22 it kinda annoys her. which I totally understand, when I was in the same "spot" (though surprisingly younger) I thought to myself - damn! can't I get get a bold pen and just cross a line over the virginity deal?

Run to You by Charlotte Stein ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Were do I begin? I really don't know. 

There's no use. I have to start by telling you what it's about though I have SO MUCH more to comment.. that will have to wait..

Alissa is kind of a regular and maybe you'd say kind of boring woman. Nothing special about her (except for her very sharp mind and how she reflects on everything she encounters). She accidentally meets Janos, a closed up kinky rich guy who drives her wild. Wild with having to interact with his "reading minds" ability, wild with want and desire. Janos is so in for a surprise when it comes to Alissa. He is just struck by her. He doesn't know how to handle his desire and attraction to her. She, too, drives him wild. With everything she is, and everything he isn't used to dealing with. But with both of them not very commitment kind of persons and also coming from so different background and lifestyles - can they close the gap?

All of You (Between Breaths #1) [Avery & Bennett] by Christina Lee ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

OH MY _____ (please insert whichever divine/mystical creature/being you believe in - Unicorns will do as well...)
you know what, let me rephrase - OM MY FREAKING _____ 
and if we are on a religious context (a little) - NOT reading this Novel is simply a SIN!

I read this book in one day, one day I struggled to do whatever it is I do - as less as possible - and as much reading as I could. It was a torture putting this book down. 
went to sleep on 3 a.m. exhausted with a happy smile on my face. Still trying to adjust to life  again - mainly because I"m so damn tired! Which is why it's so difficult for me to write the review.

The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

I SO wanted to love this Novella. But in the end, I just didn't love it enough I guess. I was thinking how to rate this book and after a lot of thought I think the 3 and a half would have to "do".

NightDrake by Lara Adrian ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I just finished this extremely short novella. I didn't really 'buy' it. The idea was nice, but I felt it was too short. The building of the relationship was unbelievable. I wish there was more to this novella since I LOVE the Midnight Breed series by Adrian.


I won't write anything about the plot since it too short as it is. 



Additional Details: Kindle Ebook, 54 pages, 1 October 2013 / On GoodReads

Night's Darkest Embrace by Jeaniene Frost ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I wasn't sure how this Novella will be.. new world in 100 pages and a story to be told in it too? 

I read Night Huntress Series so I was familiar with Frost's writing and looking forward to see who/how the heroine is going to be. Cat (from the Night Huntress) is a very strong character. has a lot to say about everything, stubborn and knows how to kick ass!
Well, Mara has the same traits which is always nice to read in a romance [ in my opinion :) ]

Edge of Dawn (Midnight Breed #11 - Mira and Kellan) by Lara Adrian ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Oh my, oh my...
After the last book (which I rated 3 stars..) and after how things ended I didn't know what to expect.. 
Lara surely re-invented the series while keeping what's important to the story - The characters we SO love and the ones we wanted to see as grown-ups. 
Now, there are so many opportunities! 
First story was meant to be Kellan and Mira.. It couldn't be any other one.

Darker After Midnight (Midnight Breed #10 - Chase and Tavia) by Lara Adrian ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

I'm not sure how to rate this book. I'm leaning towards 3.5 stars.. 

The story itself of Tavia and Chase wasn't bad. I think that they fit. it "works" in my mind. But I think that their story was lacking in a way. I didn't see enough of them as a couple or "couple to be" (you know when it's still confusing for the both of them). Tavia is SO cool but I felt she was too anemic to who she "could" be, with her potential. .her resolve to end Dragos was simply stupid though it turned out for the best in the end... Chase in my mind is just, well, tiring, his conflicts ran through too many books that in the end I was just "not in the mood" to have more of his shit concentrated in one book.

The Midnight Breed Series Companion (Volume #1) ((Midnight Breed #0.5 - Gideon and Savannah) by Lara Adrian ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Usually I'm not into these companion sort of books but I guess after 11 books you kind of get "mixed-up" with everyone.. who's got which special power, what was that "guy"'s woman, how someone ended up etc. 
So it's nice to have this compilation you can check up the details of the characters, not only the main ones but much more than that.

Deeper Than Midnight (Midnight Breed #9 - Hunter and Corrine) by Lara Adrian ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

After reading most of the series one-after-the-other I made a small break reading sweet novellas that mostly has nothing supernatural about them. 

When I was looking at my "schedule" and saw that the next one "should" be book 9 in the Midnight Breed - a book about Hunter which should be VERY interesting I kind of sighed. I wasn't sure I was "ready" to return to the series for some un-known reason.
So I just opened the book and started reading. first page - bam! action pack of Chase and Hunter. from there it was obvious I won't put this book down...


A Taste of Midnight (Midnight Breed #9.5 - Danika and Malcolm) by Lara Adrian ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Sweet Novella. 
We had a glimpse of Danika in a previous book that led me to believe we will be hearing from her again though it was obvious she can't really return to the Order (too many memories). 
I loved that she got her HEA after losing Conlan. 
Bran was exactly what she needed, I wouldn't have felt it "right" with anyone else, I mean with someone totally new.
He's past story felt just as right to bringing them together.

The Reluctant Nude by Meg Maguire ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

A beautiful story. 

Fallon made a deal (not the best one, but that's what she got) with someone she dislikes immensely (but loves her in his own twisted way) - if she wants the deed to her foster mother's house she has to pose nude for Max Emery - an amazing sculpturer - and once her "admirer" receives the sculpture the deed is hers.

Duplicity by Kristina M. Sanchez ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

There aren't enough "stars to fill" to relate how amazing I found this novella to be. 

I just finished and HAD to say - Kristina - please! - write something, anything, I'll be pre ordering it then consuming it the second it gets out.

Lord Rakehell's Love (The Curse of True Love #1) by Donna Cummings ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I'll start by saying I guess I'm not a Historical Novel kind of gal. 
I read a short novella in this genre and maybe I read a full novel years and years ago. I gave this a try since I loved other books by Donna ("I do or die" had me on the floor laughing!) and since I believe in trying out new things, and reading "outside of my comfort zone" (which is VERY comfortable ;))

Maybe I'm too used to how we interact "now-days" and its strange for me to think of the "old-days" donno.

Dangerous Magic by Samantha Hunter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This novella was so-so for me.. I liked it but it didn't "drew me in". the story itself was nice - we are in the city of Salem and we have a story with witchcraft. Gwen is a witch though she isn't very committed to the wicca way of living. She meets Nathan on the local wicca store - he isn't into magic, he doesn't even believe in magic (though he has a secret of his own) but he is there to write a story about "modern witches".

Strangers on a Train by Ruthie Knox, Donna Cummings, Samantha Hunter, Serena Bell, Meg Maguire ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I LOVED all 5 of these. 
Each one is a really short novella (about 70 pages) and they are fabulous!! It's really a nice idea that each one of the authors wrote some story taking place on a train - each one is different though the setting is the same. 






Ticket Home (Strangers on a Train) by Serena Bell ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is my 5th book in the "Strangers in a Train". I loved it!
We meet Amy who left Seattle and Jeff to pursue a work opportunity. Jeff was upset with how this thing all played out. But after a while he realized how much he misses her and how much he is willing to do to bring her back home to him. He figures he'll take the train she usually takes to work and make her listen to him while on the train - she has no-where to go on the train.. Amy doesn't want to return back home with Jeff. their relationship had its problems and she doesn't think that coming to talk to her on the train will make any difference. In her eyes HIS work always came first - before her - so the opportunity of this new job was what she needed (as an excuse) to leave him. 
So we are left with Amy and Jeff on the same train day after day - Him trying to convince her it's going to be different and her trying not to yield to her attraction and love for him when she is trying to make the right decision for herself.

Taken by Midnight (Midnight Breed #8 - Brock and Jenna) by Lara Adrian ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Yeah, I loved this book :)
Brock really has a cool talent (I'm not sure he thinks that at all times ;)), he is drawn to Jenna right from the first time they meet (on the previous book). He takes care of Jenna from that first meeting and not so slowly and surely falls in love with her (and she with him).
