The Shadow War: A Dark Paranormal Fantasy (The Demon-Born Trilogy Book 3)The Shadow War: A Dark Paranormal Fantasy by L.C. Hibbett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great ending

Like the previous 2 books in the series, this one is packed with action and surprises. Sam and Grace are together and that was great to see. I was very satisfied with the final battle and the end. Everything wrapped up nicely. However, it ended like there might be a spinoff??!! :) I hope so. I loved reading about the shadow children world!! Great series!

The Shadow City (The Demon-Born Trilogy, #2)The Shadow City by L.C. Hibbett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great 2nd installment!

Another strong story by Hibbett! Lots of action throughout the book, couldn't put it down. Grace continues to grow as a great leader! Oh yea, I just love Gabriel! I wish there was more from him in this book though.

This was recommended by my book club and I sure am glad I read it! Amazing new take on Angels&Demons! L.C. Hibbett said this was her worst book bc it was her first. I thought it was an amazing first book. Vivid world building and character building. I mostly loved the strong character, Grace; that she didn't swoon over Sam right when he showed interest in her again after he wronged her in the past. She made him give explanations and just took time! It felt real and gave a good message to the young readers.

The smoking lamp
Written by: Kimberly Loth


Goodreads:
Sixteen year old Liv had no idea the small bottles she brought home from a dive trip would land her her very own genie, but Gabe has proven more than useful in exacting revenge on that two-timing boyfriend and backstabbing best friend.

Gabriel has been locked up in his vessel for far too long. Five hundred years too long thanks to the Egyptian Goddess Bast. When he is summoned from his vessel in an unfamiliar land befuddled and confused, his predatory instincts kick in and he has only one goal—kill the girl who summoned him.

Liv had no idea that with every wish she is brought one step closer to death.

Brandi's thoughts:

I love everything that Kim writes and The Smoking Lamp was no different. I love how she writes of so many different worlds. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this, loved the independent female MC. And the Genie sounds so hot!!! Can't wait for the next in the series. I've never read and books about genies, so Kim has set a high bar for me. :)

Beautiful Torment Excerpt

LIMITED TIME SALE

 
Desiree Garcia always runs from her problems. But escaping memories and tragedy is impossible, no matter the distance. When her last FBI case pushes Desiree to her limits, she knows it’s time to move once more. This time, she heads back home and returns to her family and to her best friend she abandoned so long ago.

Hunter Collins was there for Desiree from the day they met at just twelve years old. He stood by her and waited for her, even when she joined the FBI, leaving him and all she loved behind. Now she’s back, he’s determined to not let her go again.

When faced with a police case that she can’t say no to, Desiree and Hunter navigate through the investigation as she faces the horrors of her past. As they struggle to solve the case, it’s up to Hunter to keep her tethered.

Will love and friendship be enough to save Desiree from herself and all that is tormenting her?



“Why are you looking at me like I’m a piece of meat?” I glared at Hunter, who had this distant, yet sexual look in his eyes. His gaze traveled over my face, down my body, and stopped at my chest. He’d been looking at me differently since I came home, like he wanted to jump my bones. It wasn’t unwelcome. What girl didn’t like being looked at like she was everything to someone? Ben looked at me like that, but I didn’t feel anything other than horny most of the time. Hunter and I had history, a past that wasn’t hidden; he knew all there was to know about me, and I knew all there was to know about him. The thought of him between my legs crept into my mind often. The way his glasses balanced on his nose when he was doing research, the scruff on his face because he hadn’t shaved in days because he was following a lead and neglected everything about himself until he had answers. The slight tan of his skin that seemed perpetual due to the California sun. My absolute favorite thing about him, though, was his smile. It always stretched across his face and showcased the little wrinkles at the corners of his eyes. Even when I was sad, or missing my sisters. Or my prior FBI colleagues turned best friends, Eden, Avery, and Madison. Hunter’s smile took some of that pain away.

“Sorry, your shirt is rather distracting.” Hunter whistled as he spun the keys to my car around in his hand. I glanced down and remembered that I’d thrown on a white T-shirt with no bra. My round, brown nipples were hard and peeking through. That’s what I got for having naughty thoughts about Hunter between my legs.

“It’s natural,” I mumbled, pulling on my shirt so it wasn’t so tight against me. Hunter grunted and shook his head.

“Let’s, um—” Hunter looked over the top of his glasses. “Head to your parents?” I didn’t like the awkwardness that had fallen over the room. I thought about lifting my shirt and giving him a full, unobstructed view of what was underneath. Again, bad idea. Sex and friendship never worked. But my God, was the sexual tension annoying as hell. Maybe just a little peek.

I stretched. Hunter’s eyes widened again as my nipples pressed against my shirt. Fuck. Now the tension was full-blown desire.

“Damn. I’m sorry. I’ll go change.” I got up and headed to my bedroom as Hunter called after me.

“Loving the view, but unless you’re going to stop being a tease, white shirt without a bra simply won’t do.” We played this game all the time. Flirted innocently. Lately though, there seemed to be more behind what we both said. I told him to shove something in my mouth to shut me up when I started talking incessantly, and secretly wanted it to be his dick. And he told me he’d service all my needs and to kick Ben to the curb. Well, there was no Ben, and my needs would need servicing, so….

“I’m changing, you horndog.” I quickly threw on a bra and a darker-colored shirt. “Let’s go before you hump my leg.” Hunter laughed as he shook his head.

To the outside world, Mav Ryan is living the dream. With a high profile and successful FMX career, it’s something Mav knows a million guys would kill to have. But not him. He yearns for something different, something more.

Aubrey James has had enough of bad boys to last a lifetime. When her brother, Josh, brings home the heavily tattooed definition of a bad boy, Mav, she wants nothing to do with him. It's not until a shadow from Aubrey’s past threatens her future, that to her surprise, Mav steps in.

But can he fight her demons as well as his own? Or will Mav realise that sometimes breaking away can lead to finding your home?



It’s a cliché, but as I walk out of the ballroom the gala is being held in, I feel lighter, like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. The sounds of the party quickly fade as I leave it and my family behind. I know this is a shitty way of doing things, but I couldn’t think of another way. Besides, it’s not like I had this planned. It was only when Reed gave his toast that I realised I had no idea what I was waiting for. It’s not like my family are going to give me a permission slip to leave. I don’t even know if they know I’m not happy. Nope, this is all up to me.

I quickly drive through our moderately sized home town to the house Jax and I share. Looking out my bedroom window, I can see the house I grew up in, the lights all on. My pa and pop are in there looking after Avery and Chris. I know I should go over there and tell them what I’m doing, where I’m going, but I’m scared shitless of their reaction. It’s not that I think they’ll be pissed; it’s the disappointment I know I’ll see in their eyes that stops me. I might be the strong, silent type, but I don’t know if I’m strong enough to withstand that. With all my shit packed, I quickly scribble a note.

I’m sorry I left this way, but it was the only way I thought I could. I don’t mean to upset anyone, but I can’t live like this anymore, it’s too much. Please let me go. I’ll be okay and get in touch when I’m ready. I’m sorry. I love you all, Mav.

I’m an hour outside Booker when the calls start. First Bria, then Reed and Jax. Just as I reach the New South Wales border, a final text message comes through, this one from Park.
Park: Do what you need to, be safe, we love you.
I turn off my phone and toss it onto the passenger seat. The road stretches out in front of me, and for the first time in a long time I feel like I can breathe.

Souls Asunder Review

Title: Souls Asunder
Written by: Miranda Brock
Published: August 18, 2017

Goodreads Synopsis:

"Autumn never thought she would be faced with this choice. She couldn’t lose everything. Not again. Only this time it was different; completely, devastatingly different. When faced with such a decision, though, what choice did she really have?”

Following her purpose and picking up the pieces of her fractured heart is all Autumn wishes for. Increasing confrontations with Dehmons and the unveiling of powers keeps Autumn and her protective Searchers plenty busy, giving the Keeper the distraction she craves. Life is moving on and Autumn is beginning to find peace and strength once more.

That is, until something sinister and mysterious begins to slip into Autumn’s life, bringing with it doubts more dangerous than the Dehmons who threaten the Keeper’s existence.

New challenges arise as the Dehmon Masters start to leave their sanctuary, and with the discovery of a spear capable of turning humans into dark-souled Dehmons, the race to save innocents is more desperate than ever.

With the enemy pressing in on all sides, will Autumn be able to uncover the truth of the dark and treacherous visions haunting her mind, and untangle her heart in the process?

Join Keeper Autumn and her band of Searchers as they journey toward a destination none of them prepared for.




My Thoughts:

Souls Asunder is the second book in the keeper's way series written by Miranda Brock. I love this series. I love that the second book connects the reader further to the characters. I loved Jason in the first book however the second book definitely gave me a huge soft spot for Ronan. Can't believe Jason's role in the second book and how much it impacted the story. This series is like an emotional roller coaster for me. Miranda left this crazy ending again just to keep me baited for book 3. Love this author and look forward to having the honor of reading more of her work!

ADVANCED REVIEW
rated it it was amazing
This is my favorite out of the Thin Red Lines Series! Even though it is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. I loved Hunter and Desiree! This book is suspenseful, funny, heartbreaking and beautiful!! The story kept me pulled in reading as fast as I could, I had to know what was going to happen!! I loved the twists and turns! There are parts in there that had me saying "What in the world just happened?" Hunter and Desiree had amazing chemistry and I loved the banter between them! I hope everyone gets to find thier hero like Desiree does. If you are looking for a romantic thriller with some laughs I highly recommend this book.
