didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it

Now i'll be totally honest and I had never of Shalini Boland or The Outside series books until the ever so lovely Sharon Goodwin from Fiction Addiction Book Tours asked me would I read and review this book.. Which I dived at the chance. Now I wasn't really into post apocalyptic novels but I am so glad I didn't turn my nose up because I loved this book ever so much.

Now I was asked to review this book but I hadn't even read the first book The outside so I quickly downloaded it on my Kindle and Boy was I glad I did, It was a great hooking read which after reading I jumped straight on to this book wanting to read more of the lives of Riley and Luc.

Shalini's style of writing definitely had me hooked from the first couple of pages, at one point I was even gripping to my cushion dying to know what was going to happen or if any surprises would scare me hehe. I don't want to give the story line away too much but I do recommend to fully understand the story in this book, I would read the

I loved pretty much all the characters in this book, wasn't very keen on the baddies but I don't suppose people will like baddies in stories hehe. I loved the closeness between Riley and Luc but was a bit gutted though... (Shalini I was disappointed :( lol..Hopefully you will know why) Riley is definitely the heroine in this book, and she was written about so beautifully and how brave she is.

The is a excellent and amazing twist right at the end which had me shocked to my feet, was definitely left on a cliffhanger leaving me wanting book 3 right now!!!
I hope in the next book we do get to see more of Riley and Luc and see where their relationship will go, because Luc is always ever so protective of Riley and always helped protect innocent people too, he wasn't ever selfish.

I want to say a big thank you to Shalini Boland for sending me a paperback copy of her book but also a big big thank you to Sharon Goodwin from Fiction Addiction Book Tours for introducing me to a ever so wonderful author!

Edge of Dawn (A Midnight Breed Novel) By Lara Adrian


Title: Edge Of Dawn(Midnight Breed Novel)
Author: Lara Adrian
Publisher: Canvas
Publication Date: 26th February 2013

Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn - when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them - the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.

Raised among the order, Mira has always believed in the warrior's code of swift - and even lethal - justice.But the one thing she desires more than the Order's hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.

Kellan didn't think he would ever see Mira again - or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides - between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.

didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it

Now when my best friend first introduced me to I wasn't sure I would love them and wouldn't even finish the midnight breed...Oh how I was wrong and I have so many thanks to give to my best friend for introducing me to Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series, They are truly amazing reads!

Now Lara's recent book in the series is Edge of Dawn in which we forward on twenty years later and Mira has special powers in which she can see the future for people through her eyes, Not always being nice truths though, she is mourning over losing the love of her life and was part of the Order Kellan Archer when he suddenly got killed in a building bomb... While Mira is out on a team mission by the Leader of the Order Lucan Thorne, She becomes reckless and taking her anger out on a human rebel, However she is going to suffer by Lucan by being kicked off the team and being sent back home. Her life is only just going to get more complicated...when she bumps into the one person who she cried for years and years thinking he was dead when in actual fact he is alive..Kellan Archer aka Human Rebel Leader Bowman..

This was truly amazing and ever so addictive from the first chapter. Now if you are currently the series then you will exactly understand what I mean. When I got my copy on my Kindle I couldn't wait to start it, I literally was hooked from the first chapter and I couldn't be disturbed or spoken to until I finished it the day after!

Lara's books are truly addictive with very sexy, dark, dangerous, handsome vampires who will keep you company and let you drool over them leaving you wanting your very own Breed vampire hehe!

This book was a highly dangerous and aggressive read but I enjoyed that Mira and Kellan got reunited again even though it wasn't the best circumstances.
It will definitely leave you feeling like you have just been on a huge roller coaster ride with far too emotion and leave you drained and wanting more and more once again. This book had me laughing and smiling in some chapters, feeling very happy, feeling very sad, even in tears in couple of chapters but then feeling very overcome with Love right at the end.

I urge you all to read this book, You are not going to be disappointed!
Truly the best again.

This book truly deserves the big gold star rating. The best of the best in which you NEED this book and the other series on your own bookshelve for you to treasure always..

Fiction Addiction Tour Blog Review A Little Bit Of Madness By Sheryl Browne

Title: A Little Bit Of MadnessAuthor: Sheryl Browne
Publisher: Safkhet Publishing
Publication Date: 14th February 2013

Celia Summers, intrepid mother of two, is too cuddly for sweatpants, she suspects. But then, her class at The Harbour Rest Home are similarly clad. Celia loves her work as an art therapist. She's proud that she gives her elderly independents something to look forward to, even if her partner, Martin, disapproves of her efforts. He also has other things on his mind - telling complicated lies to Celia so he can sell Charlton Hall, his mum's house, to pay off his debts.

Meanwhile, Celia fights to secure gallery space for her geriatric charges' artwork, and to keep The Harbour from being closed. She's even ready to abseil from a church steeple to bring attention to the plight of her old people, no matter that she might fall and end up splattered all over the flagstones. When she does fall, however, it's much more painful - in love with PC Alex Burrows. Will he be her white knight in blue and ride to her rescue?

didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it

What a perfect day for Sheryl's new book to be published, Happy 
Valentines Day everyone! Now im going to make this a extra special review just because it's Valentines day! Now I want to say I am very grateful that Sharon from Fiction Addiction Book Tours and Sheryl Browne for  asking me to review this new book A Little Bit Of Madness. First of all when I first got my hands on a copy, I loved it straight away, the bold pink cover was shouting out to me. . ."pleasee read me, pleasee!"

We meet Celia Summers an art therapist who works at The Harbour Rest Home and also a mother of two with a useless partner Martin. Life couldn't be simpler for Celia until The Harbour is about to be shut down and frightened of losing her art studio, Celia with oldies Eleanor,May,The Colonel all come together to stop The Harbour from being shut down, Celia even comes with the idea to abseil from a church steeple. . .wouldn't be a wise choice really but they need the attention. . .with an expected visit of PC Alex Burrows, will Celia's plan work, will Alex be her knight in shining Armour.

A Little Bit Of Madness was a fantastic read, had me giggling pretty much every chapter. I loved all the mix of characters and how they all got on so well together especially the oldies hehe, Oh May had me in such fits of giggles :).

I loved the chemistry between Celia and Alex and I was clapping my hands by the end Yay :) I disliked Rosemary at first and Martin, I thought Rosemary came across as a snob and didn't really like Celia, she thought Celia was just after Martin for his money which wasn't that at all. I disliked Martin even more because he just came across in the book as being rather sly and started keeping things from Celia is just very  hurtful and not very nice to keep secrets.

My Favourite character even though I did love Celia's warm caring character but my all time favourite would have to be May, one of the oldies from the rest home, She certainly had me giggling at a lot of things she did but also reminded me of how wacky my gran can be at times too. I was glad it was a dishy gorgeous Police man too, I love a man in uniform hehe ;) thank you Sheryl!

I definitely enjoyed this book so much, I really couldn't put it down tbh, I just kept wanting to see what was happening next with the crazy bunch of characters. I do say you all need to grab a copy of this wonderful book by the ever so lovely Sheryl Browne, You are not going to be disappointed I'm telling you!

didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it

Another Fantastic story by Vivien. I loved and adored it!! I was so happy when Vivien sent me a copy to review, I was very excited. It isn't your typical erotic romance story but it was still fantastically and beautifully written.

We meet Willow Everingham who is a personal assistant to Hector Knight a gorgeous businessman but has a secret but can he trust Willow enough to let her in the secret? Willow keeps having erotic dreams about her boss and what she craves so much from him.
Willow and Hector soon head to a desolate island in the Mediterranean where there is plenty of ancient mystery going on straight in front of Willows eyes. Together they experience and figure things out from the ancient story of the legend of Ba'al & Tanit, priests and priestesses of Carthage and the whole vision of love incarnate that is beautifully entwined together. Love is a very strong and possessive feeling.

This was so amazing, I left feeling very amazed reading about their sexual tension and how erotic their relationship ends up getting, but it is so beautiful at the same. I loved the characters Willow and Hector and how their chemistry worked and how Vivien wrote this book ever so amazing even though not so many pages but still leaves you feeling very gripped and wanting more from them..especially the way Vivien just leaves the ending with such a climax..

This book is definitely different to any of Vivien's other books but however it has plenty of mystery and love to be such a fantastic book. I hope to read more on Willow & Hector. Come on please Vivien! hehe :)

Her Master's Kiss 3 By Vivien Sparx

Title: Her Master's Kiss 3

Author: Vivien Sparx
Kindle Edition


"He wanted her. He needed her. But could he truly love her. . .?"
When Stefan and Renee find themselves in a deepening relationship, the fragile bonds of trust so carefully developed are suddenly broken when a careless mistake is made. Suddenly their future together is in jeopardy as Stefan struggles to deal with a relationship where he is no longer the Master, and he no longer has control. Everything is at risk. . . and no one is safe.

didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it

The most electrifying read I have ever read in 2013 by far,  I was so so so happy when found out Vivien had written another HMK story I couldn't control my excitement. I dove right into HMK3 straight away. . .

We follow on in Stefan's and Renee's intoxicating romantic life 6 months on after HMK2, Stefan has opened up a lot about his old life with his ex wife and is showing Renee just how much she does actually mean to him. They have a new lodger staying with them who is Tink, after she saved Renee's life and not only has no where else to go but Stefan and Renee took her in until Stefan could find her a more loving Master not like the disgrace Larry Maddox...
However Vivien just had to throw in the mix of more people from their Past's to arrive...throwing Stefan off balance and feeling very lost and having no control of his relationship and having no trust.. But was so happy Tink told him some very needed home truths to Stefan which made him wake up just in the right nick of time..

I loved when Tink went to meet Master Peter who was also an old friend of Stefan's but he was so different to Master Larry, he seemed so caring, It was definitely a distraction half way through this story with the darkness cloud hovering over Renee and Stefan once again.

I despised Master Larry completely he was an utter horrible lazy slob who just drinks alcohol all the time, the picture I did have of Master Larry was a man who was fat, had stinky breath and just loved to use his fists to get his own way. But I did like the way Vivien's creative writing brought such an amount of emotion from one horrible evil villain. 

This is one story which leaves you feeling like you have been on one hell of a roller coaster probably in tears and very drained but also happy for them too.
I loved the style of writing again in this final installment of  the HMK series, Vivien is certainly a fantastic erotic romance writer who made this series so beautiful and very suspenseful but also leaving you feeling like you know Stefan and Renee in person. I Loved this series and I urge all of you to read these books, Please please do! You will be sadly missing out on fantastic reads if you don't.

Her Master's Kiss 2 By Vivien Sparx

Title: Her Master's Kiss 2
Author: Vivien Sparx
Kindle Edition

For Renee, settling in to life as Stefan's submissive is full of challenges - and her dark sexy master is keen to ensure Renee learns her lessons well! But even as Stefan struggles to come to terms with emotional demons and open himself up to Renee, a sudden dark shadow from Stefan's past appears, forcing the couple to confront their greatest fears, and challenging them to face their real feelings for each other.

didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it

I was glad when Vivien asked me to read and review her books. After finishing Her Master's Kiss, I couldn't wait to carry on the story with the second one straight away, We follow on in Renee's and Stefan's lives as Master and Slave and Renee still being taught submissive lessons but soon Stefan's past life is about to haunt him when Larry Maddox with his submissive Tink comes to stay with Stefan and Renee and call in a "favour" from Stefan, Things slowly start to bring a dark cloud and get horrible..

I loved this book ever so much, Yes it did bring a few tears to my eyes at some points but it will have you gripped once again from the very first chapter and by the very end page you will be left feeling very emotional and full of suspense.
I loved the style of writing and how Vivien made each chapter so gripping and full of passion and drama and plenty of suspense that you just never know what was going to happen next. I feel very sorry for Tink, who is Larry's slave in this story the way she has been treated by him and how she is so vulnerable and timid young woman who doesn't have anything else in life but him.

I thought the idea of the bracelet was fantastic, showing Stefan's more caring side by giving Renee the bracelet letting himself losen up a bit and letting Renee come closer into his life which in the end brought Stefan back to his old loving and caring self.

If you cannot stop her in mid stride with but a single glance . . . .
If you cannot take her breath away with but a single word . . . .
If you cannot drop her to her knees with but a single gesture . . . .
If you cannot make her body quiver with but a single touch . . . .

Then all the toys and tools in the world will do you no good.
Find her mind, grasp her heart, and her body and soul will surrender. - Shimmer.

The best quote from this story which left an imprint in my mind all the way through this book.

Once again I was left feeling very blown away by Stefan's and Renee's relationship but was left loving them both all over again. I promise you all must go read these books, You will not be disappointed. .
