OBSESSION Cover Reveal: S.M Phillips
Anna Jameson can't wait to escape the hell hole that her cousin has left her in. Desperate to escape her past, the idea of moving to stay with Holly whilst she got her head together sounded like the perfect plan... Until Holly upped and left, leaving Anna to pick up the mess that she left behind.
Jensen Blake knows what he wants and will not be told otherwise. Obedience and control are what he knows best. With demons of his own, he has spent most of his adult life traveling from place to place the moment things started to become predictable.

Review: The Legend of the Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael

The Legend of the Blue Eyes (Blue Eyes, #1)The Legend of the Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a unique creative take on vampires, werewolves and night creatures in general. I really enjoyed the storyline and the fact that it wasn't anything like the other young adult vampire books that I have read. I couldn't wait to see where the author was going with the story. To say I devoured this book is an understatement and now I am eager to begin book 2 in the series.

Arianna Grace finds out on her sixteenth birthday that she is a vampire, but not just any vampire. She has the blood of two warring clans, Baku and Dearg-dul. Each clan has their own unique abilities except for Arianna, she has the power of both. Caught in the middle and finding out she may be the key to peace is a lot to swallow, but Arianna handles it with grace and dignity. Of course it helps if you have a couple handsome young men willing to put their lives on the line to protect you. I also loved this about the story, There is no love triangle where you feel like you want to scream, but a special bond that allows for Arianna to have more than one keeper. I have to say she is a very lucky girl because I loved Devin and Turner equally.

There is so much more to the story but I do not want to give anything away and spoil it. The Legend of Blue Eyes is a great start to the series. I am anxious to find out how Arianna handles her new found position and if she can bring peace to the clans. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a unique YA paranormal story.

Wanderlust by Lacey Weatherford and Belinda Boring

Wanderlust (The Story of Us, #1)Wanderlust by Lacey Weatherford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG you did not just leave me hanging like that! I am still in shock and feel like I want to scream, cry and even throw my cherished kindle. Wow that is a cliffhanger to beat all.

I am totally in love with Ryder and would go anywhere in the universe with him. What a perfect leading man. "With Just one touch, he'd branded me his, forever." I couldn't have put it better than Skylar. The intensity of their budding relationship and the heat of their physical chemistry blew me away.

I adore this book and the originality of the story that authors Lacey Weatherford and Belinda Boring created. I couldn't put it down and now my heart aches for more. Brilliantly written and original. I will definitely be rereading this book. I highly recommend it!
