roni about the books

chameleons spell

Chameleon’s Spell

She’d known it was coming—it had to be dealt with, sooner or later. The effect Chameleon blood produced on the majority of humans was akin to taking aphrodisiacs or psychedelic drugs, and all but the strongest minds succumbed. Juliet Marchant has a secret—one that makes her hide from the world, until the day her friend, a shifter wolf, is slaughtered on her land. If Juliet is to fulfill her destiny, she must take her place in the world, unlock her Immortal powers, and face her dangerous attraction to the human leader of Spectral Command.

What if your only memory is of who you aren’t, not who you are? Seventeen-year-old Rashelle Santos fights her way out of a coma to find she doesn’t remember her life, except for her parents and dog. Brain damage doctors tell her, but Rashelle knows with absolute certainty that Shellie (her nickname) died at the bottom of Kaweah Lake, bequeathing her death memories to Rashelle. Rashelle leaps into a relationship with Shellie’s boyfriend, Aiden Brody, because he stirs her feelings and fills the void within her. As their relationship becomes serious, she questions whom he really loves. When threats appear in the form of notes stuffed into her locker and calls in the night, Rashelle wonders if she can stay alive long enough to discover who wants her dead, because somewhere out there Shellie’s attacker watches and waits to finish what he started. And what the hell, she wonders, is she deranged or could dead Shellie be lingering to keep her alive?

3rd degree secrets

3rd Degree Secrets

“Like burns, there are degrees of secrets. First-degree secrets are those that girls share with female friends under clouds of giggles and shushed voices, eyes bright, smiles flashing, with furtive glances to ensure that a certain boy doesn’t overhear. First-degree secrets are relatively painless, subject to no worse than blushes or easy tears depending upon if that boy does or does not return feelings of affection. Second-degree secrets follow a person from her locker down the school halls—rolling eyes and pointed fingers marking her as surely as a painted X on her back. These secrets don’t leave scars, but injure nonetheless, deep inside where insecurities linger and fester, waiting to explode. The most serious secrets are third degree, just as third degree burns are the worst, leaving the scars, bumpy, pitted, and marred; these secrets irrevocably twist, disfigure, and ruin lives.

“I’ve had my share of second-degree secrets that I mostly try to ignore, but my third-degree secrets, well, those I hug to me in a fear born of basic survival instincts. My exterior is unblemished, white with blue veins, road maps traveling to foreign places beneath my skin, but inside, the terrain rises into mountains and ridges, scared, puckered, and ugly, uncrossable except by painful passage that I’m unwilling to take.” Kisten Rowen, Age 16

3rd Degree Secrets is a dark, sexy, paranormal mystery that fans of House of Night and Vampire Academy should love.

Vicky’s review of Netherworld~ Hollowed Realms pt 1

netherworld banner

netherworld

about the book blue swirls

Taryn
Flatline. The moment when one life ends and the next begins. That’s my cue. Being a banshee is a right pain in the arse. When I’m not ferrying souls through the veil between worlds, I’m training in secret for a war our King denies is coming. But I know better. An army of Lorcan monsters stands ready to breach the wall. If they succeed, the destruction they seek will not be contained. My only hope is to rely on the aid of a cocky prince with his own agenda. But after a human man captures my interest, will I be able to accept the terms of the prince’s aid?

Devlin
Our paths were never meant to cross. I’m meant to live my human life, unaware of the world that exists beyond the veil. But when Taryn and I collide, my world flips upside down. Nothing makes sense anymore. Logic tells me to run as far as I can from Taryn and the nightmares of her world but my heart screams at me to follow her to the literal ends of the earth. Even if it means my own damnation.

review blue swirls

five star rating

I was excited to read this one as I have never read about a Banshee before. I found the synopsis intriguing and the story was excellent. When Taryn is tasked with her daily job, things quickly go wrong. And when you think things can’t get any worse for her… They do. I really liked the characters and not only are we given one book boyfriend to lust after we are given TWO!! Oh my.. On one hand we have Devlin.. and the other Prince Aed. But with everything going on, it is hard to know just how things will play out. The story moved at a steady pace, and at the end we find Taryn in a precarious situation and i am anxious to see what happens next. This series is definitely one I would be absolutely thrilled to see come to life on the big screen. I cannot wait for more of the Hollowed Realm, and what lies within…

Vicky’s review of Every October by Aubree Lane

Every OctoberEvery October by Aubree Lane

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This shorter read was filled with life lessons and the struggle of leaving those we love behind… no matter where we are headed. Every October Zoey comes to see her daughter, and Amy can sense when her mom is near. But this year she can actually see her! It’s heartbreaking to see the love she has for her little girl. But it’s not all doom and gloom there is definitely some lighter moments and things Zoey will have to figure out before she can move on. Will she be stuck on this path forever? Or will she discover a way to move past everything and go where she belongs? Well I can’t tell you…. you will have to read for yourself 🙂

Vicky’s Review of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading the Court series I just had to read more by Sarah. The synopsis drew me in and once the story took off, and I could not put it down. Celaena is definitely going to be an interesting character, and I feel there is a lot more to her than what we see here. After all this is just the beginning right? The story moved at a great pace and had just enough mystery and suspense to keep the pages flipping. With so many different characters throughout the story, I often found myself wondering about their backstories, but also wondered who was friend or foe? I am excited to dive deeper into this series and cannot wait to see what happens next.

deception about the book lavender 2(1)

Izzy has had a long line of liars make up her past. It’s her history that makes her in high demand as an Art Authenticator. She can spot a fraud, as well as a forgery with little effort.

Izzy no longer makes room in her life for men since she knows all men lie. She would rather have a dog. That is until Caleb Matthews sweeps her off her feet with his genuine, sincere, no-nonsense way. Over time, she allows him to break down her walls of mistrust. She learns how to make allowances for people that may be flawed, and not always entirely honest.  But is that wise?

Whatever you imagine the end will be may be a bit of truth, but you won’t see the twist until it’s too late.

deception excerpt

The middle of three children, Izzy had two brothers. Her older brother by three years, Michael, was wonderful. He was trustworthy, loving and kind. He always stuck up for and protected her. They were very close.

Then there was Gabriel, her younger brother by two years. The last time there was a relationship this loving, God threw Lucifer out of heaven.

Malicious and vindictive, Gabriel was a liar. Izzy had caught him in many lies, but whenever she tried to tell their mother he was lying, Shelly always brushed her aside and let it go. It infuriated Izzy. At times like that, Gabriel taunted her with smug looks and snide comments. She could never see them being friends. Ever.

Hugo, the Greenblat Great Dane, was as gentle as a kitten and as big as a small horse. Some of the neighbor kids called him Huge-O due to his size. Izzy had always loved dogs because they never lied, were always loyal and faithful.

She thought life was perfect. She soon learned a perfect life was just an illusion. All made up of smoke and mirrors. Reality shattered her happy existence.

The lie that destroyed Izzy’s ten-year-old world came when her parents announced they were ending their relationship, but not by divorce. They had never married.

Her brothers accepted it. She couldn’t. She was devastated that two people she should have been able to trust, had lied to her throughout her life. She had too many questions. What did it mean? How would they be treated? Did this mean she and her brothers were bastards? Her biggest question was if her parents were splitting, would one of them take Gabriel with them? The questions kept coming with no one answering them.

Izzy decided then she would never trust anyone but Michael again.
