Coming January 1, 2014!

Blurb:

The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling, award-winning King Hall: the revolution is here, but the most dangerous attack may come from within…

The safe, comfortable world of Lily Ruckler and her fellow Mystical Kings and Queens is rocked to the core by the attacks at King Hall. Not only does Lily have to kill the Commoners attacking her people, she also has to assume the mantle of leadership, and bring the surviving Mysticals to King Cave.

It should have been too much, but she is not alone. Ezra becomes her rock, her best friend, the one person who understands. As Pearl and Jack struggle with inconsolable loss, Ezra and Lily work to keep the Mys community safe in their new home, and plan a deadly retaliation.

Their friendship saves them both…but it also draws attention. Whispers. Judgment. It’s not normal for Shifters and Vampires to be friends, and when a horrifying truth is revealed, their relationship morphs from unusual to unspeakable. Lily is good at keeping secrets that could get her killed. Is she willing to risk Ezra’s life as well?

Very Bad Things (Briarcrest Academy #1) by Ilsa Madden-Mills
Publication Date: September 10, 2013
Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ Cori
Rated: 5 Stars

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Born into a life of privilege and secrets, Nora Blakely has everything any nineteen-year-old girl could desire. She’s an accomplished pianist, a Texas beauty queen, and on her way to Princeton after high school. She’s perfect…

Leaving behind her million-dollar mansion and Jimmy Choos, she becomes a girl hell-bent on pushing the limits with alcohol, drugs, and meaningless sex.

Then she meets her soulmate. But he doesn’t want her.

When it comes to girls, twenty-five-year-old Leo Tate has one rule: never fall in love. His gym and his brother are all he cares about…until he meets Nora. He resists the pull of their attraction, hung up on their six year age difference.

As they struggle to stay away from each other, secrets will be revealed, tempers will flare, and hearts will be broken.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy…where sometimes, the best things in life are Very Bad Things.

REVIEW

I loved this book! It drew me in from the first chapter and I couldn’t put it down until I turned the last page, other than to send teasers to my Facebook page. I loved the characters. Their story was an emotional roller coaster ride for me. Everyone sees Nora as the perfect, innocent, rich girl, but she has scars and things she hides from the world. When Leo meets Nora they have an instant connection. Their story makes the reader believe in soul mates and destiny. A beautiful love story with hot and steamy romance. Loved it and can not wait to find out who will star in the next Briarcrest Academy book.

Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen) by Lisa Renee Jones

Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen) by Lisa Renee Jones
Publication Date: July 22, 2013
Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ Cori
Rated: 4 Stars

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

New Adult novel
Recommended for 17+ due to mature themes and sexual content
Book 1 of THE SECRET LIFE OF AMY BENSEN Series
ESCAPING REALITY
***
Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….
His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loved to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten-even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets her guard down, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

REVIEW:

This book drew me in and kept me on edge from beginning to end. I still don’t know what happened. Who are the bad guys? Who can Amy trust? I like a good mystery though. Amy has a mysterious and dangerous past that has kept her on the run with the help of some unnamed protector. She gets a message that she has to drop everything and leave and she does. I’m not sure why she doesn’t stop to question who or what the mysterious danger is, but maybe the next book will explain more. Liam is a sexy, dominant, billionaire Amy meets running to a new life and away from whatever danger is following her. They have an instant connection and even though Amy can’t trust anyone, she can’t help letting Liam in. This story is full of suspense, danger, mystery and romance. I was completely captivated and can not wait for the next book to hopefully get answers. The cliffhanger ending left me screaming and I might have thrown my iPad if I wasn’t afraid of breaking it, but it was a great story and I’ll be impatiently waiting for the next book in the series. I recommend this book for New Adult and Romantic Suspense lovers.

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn
Publication Date: July 25, 2013
Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Cori
Rated: 5 Stars

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

A fresh, meaty, sink-your-teeth-in-and-hold-on-tight new adult fantasy series kicks off with King Hall…

King Hall — where the Mysticals go to learn their craft, get their degrees, and transition into adulthood. And where four new Rulers will rise and meet their destinies.

Lily Ruckler is adept at one thing: survival. Born a Mystical hybrid, her mere existence is forbidden, but her nightmare is only about to start. Fluke, happenstance, and a deep personal loss finds Lily deeply entrenched with those who would destroy her simply for existing — The Mystical Kings. Being named future Queen of the Shifters shoves Lily into the spotlight, making her one of the most visible Mysticals in the world. But with risk comes a certain solace — her burgeoning friendships with the other three Rulers: a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. Backed by their faith and trust, Lily begins to relax into her new life.

Then chaos erupts as the fragile peace between Commoners and Mysticals is broken, and suddenly Lily realises the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the Revolution.

REVIEW:

Absolutely amazing! I love when I come across a book that completely pulls me in and I get lost in the pages. King Hall definitely did that for me. It swept me into a mystical world of young Vampires, Mages, Shifters and Elementals. I was captivated from the beginning and wasn’t able to put it down until the last page. This is a story of love, loss, and friendship. It is full of danger, drama, action and mystery. I was kept on edge trying to figure out what would happen next through out the book. Scarlett Dawn has created a great first book in a series I will be devouring. I have so many questions that were left unanswered that I am hoping will get answered in the next book. I really connected with all the characters and became invested in finding out what will happen to them. There is an abrupt ending that left me on edge and wanting more, but it just makes me want to get the next book as soon as it comes out. This book is classified as New Adult, but while there are hot sexual situations and the characters are 19 and up, I think it falls somewhere between New Adult and Young Adult. I think as the series continues that will progress though. I highly recommend this book! It’s a book that falls into several genres, but it is just a great story that I think everyone will enjoy. I loved it and can not wait to see what Scarlett Dawn has I store for the characters in the next book!

THE LAST BOYFRIEND (Forever Love) by J. S. Cooper

THE LAST BOYFRIEND (Forever Love) by J. S. Cooper
Publication Date: May 5, 2013
Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ Cori
Rated: 4 Stars

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
***USA TODAY Bestseller***
Lucky Morgan has had her share of heartbreak. She is devastated when her boyfriend dumps her after sleeping with him and she vows to herself that she won’t be used again. She decides that the next guy she dates and sleeps with, will be her one true love.

Zane Beaumont is the mysterious and snooty guy that comes into her diner every Friday night with a different girl. He’s the type of guy she’s learned to avoid: carefree, fast, handsome, rich, and sarcastic. Unfortunately, she can’t stop thinking about the devilish gleam in his eyes.

When Lucky’s car breaks down one night after a party, it is Zane who comes to her rescue. As Zane attempts to sweep Lucky off of her feet, she soon realizes that nothing is as it seems and that Zane may very well be the guy for whom she changes the rules. That is until she meets Braydon.

New Adult Contemporary Romance **Mature Content** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations and language.

REVIEW:
I really enjoyed The Last Boyfriend! Zane is a bit of a mystery at first and seems like a player bringing a different girl on a date every Friday night to the restaurant where Lucky works. Lucky has a lot of dating rules she came up with after her last boyfriend cheated on her and while she is really attracted to Zane she doesn’t think he fits her last boyfriend rule. She can’t deny their attraction and instant chemistry when they get together though. I loved the characters even though their back and forth decision making had me angry with both of them at times. I also really enjoyed all the mystery with Zane’s character. J.S. Cooper’s writing style was very easy to read as well. This book has a great plot with likable characters, lots of mystery, drama, and steamy romance. There is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end that left me really looking forward to the next book in the series, The Last Husband. I recommend this book for readers looking for a good New Adult Contempory Romance.
