Divergent by Veronica Roth

I purchased this book because it was recommended by one of my favorite authors Laura Wright. I realized that it is a teen book, but I am on edge right now because I have about 30 pages left to read and I can't wait to find out what happens. This book is so exciting and empowering. I think I was to be Divergent lol. I am almost done reading, but I can tell you that I am recommending this to everyone. ***** 5 stars. The sucky part is that book #2 won't be available until May 2012. How can the authors keep us waiting that long??? Here is the book cover and description of Divergent.
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her. Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

A Dark Kiss of Rapture - by Sylvia day

Next, I am reading A Dark Kiss of Rapture. This author was recommended to me and I read that she is a best selling author. I'll post my review and let you know if it's a yay or nay lol.
Of all the Fallen, Raze's hungers are some of the darkest and most insatiable. His brazen seductions cost him his wings, leaving him soulless and immortal, the most dangerous of seducers. He has roamed the earth for eons, hunting the rogues of his kind and protecting the humans who provide him with blood and sex. He is content with his life and the transient pleasures that flow through it... until one night and one woman change everything.

Kimberly McAdams is smart, beautiful, and wealthy. She can have any man she wants, but the moment she sets eyes on the lethally stunning Raze she knows he's the man she needs. As one searingly erotic night burns into something deeper and far more vital than either of them expected, an adversary from Raze's past sees a chance for revenge. Twisted by hatred, she will take from Raze what was taken from her—the precious gift of love.

Lord of the Vampires book #1

I have just finished the first installment of Gena Showalter's Lord of the Vampires. I wish this book was longer, but other than that, I really enjoyed it. I have read many of Gena's books and haven't been disappointed yet. Pick up your copy. Great price for a really good book. ***** 5 stars.

Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden.  To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with a need for vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.

Nicolai the Vampire is renowned for his virility, but in a cruel twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” has become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina—stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remains is a primal need for freedom, revenge—and the only woman who can help him.

When the wanton vampire summons Jane Parker, she is helpless to obey.  She's drawn to his dark sexuality and into his magical realm.  But for this human, all is not a fairy tale.  For saving Nicolai could mean losing the only man she's ever craved...

Kiss Me Crazy by Ednah Walters - Review

LOVED IT!! Hey everyone, I finished reading Kiss Me Crazy Last night and it was soooo good. I had to ignore the hubs and the kids for a little bit (sorry), but I just had to finish the last chapter before bed. I just loved Baron Fitzgerald and Kara together. There were so many obstacles and of course drama, but you can't prevent what's meant to be, no matter how much time passes. Baron Fitzgerald is Kara's very HOT boss and there are rules about that kind of thing, but rules are meant to be broken. I don't want to give too much away and ruin it for you, so go and get your copy. This is a must read. Great story and I didn't want it to end :( I'm hoping that there will be more books to come in this series. The Fitzgerald's are a very large family and we've had sneak peaks of other family members. I can definitely see Lex Fitzgerald (Baron's older brother), getting his own story as well as Chase, Baron's TWIN :D brother.....Did I mention Baron has a TWIN??? Maybe he's available?? Hmm can't wait to find out. I hope Ednah has something is in the works!!   ***** 5 stars

Review - Keeping Kaitlyn by Anya Bast

just finished this book and it was ok. I would give it ** stars. It didn't have a real solid story line and not as much depth or imagination. I would recommend only if u didn't have anything else to read.

Keeping Kaitlyn by Anya Bast

This is next on my reading list. I will have a review and recommendation for you this week.

Review of "Bound in Darkness" by Cynthia Eden

This book was just OK. I only finished because I thought it might get better, since it was recommended by another author. There were some typos which I find very annoying! Anyway, I'm giving this only **Stars.

I am not recommending this book to my friends.

Chase Brothers Series

Four Chase Brothers and all are drop dead gorgeous . They each find the loves of their lives in their home town of Petal, Georgia. Of course getting to the happy endings is never easy and there is a lot of drama getting there. Too bad there are only four brothers - which means only four books. The book Once and Again on my 9/30 post also takes place in Petal and some of the characters from the Chase Brothers Series make an appearance. I know you will really enjoy these stories.
(***** 5 Stars)
