2 ARC Bullet Reviews

Korean-American author Jayci Lee delights with this delicious and light-hearted romantic comedy that readers will devour and ask for more.

Bake a chance on love.

Aubrey Choi loves living in her small town nestled in the foothills of California, running her highly successful bakery away from the watch of her strict Korean parents. When a cake mix-up and a harsh review threaten all of her hard work and her livelihood, she never thought the jaded food critic would turn out to be her one-night stand. And she sure as hell never thought she’d see her gorgeous Korean unicorn again. But when Landon Kim waltzes into her bakery trying to clean up the mess he had a huge hand in making, Aubrey is torn between throwing and hearing him out.

When she hears his plan to help save her business, Aubrey knows that spending three weeks in California wine country working with Landon is a sure recipe for disaster. Her head is telling her to take the chance to save her bakery while her heart—and her hormones—are at war on whether to give him a second chance. And it just so happens that Landon’s meddling friends want them to spend those three weeks as close as possible...by sharing a villa.

Mini Book Breakdown

This was a truly sweet read! From the talk of food to the romance! It’s funny and very entertaining! I had a ball reading this one! Can’t wait for more from this author!





Perin expected eternal darkness after his death, yet the land of Laith has other plans for him. Snapped awake with a desperate hunger for flesh, he fights the urge to feed, knowing that once he gives in to temptation, there is no turning back.

Tavarra’s deepest desire was always to be human. When she received her one true wish, the journey had already claimed those she cared about. Alone, she fights through each day, forgetting how to truly live.

To strip away his new curse, Perin needs to retrieve an enchanted liquid and bring it back to the Stone of Desire. Despite his unpredictability, and him being the monster this time, Tavarra chooses to help. Tied by fate and loneliness, they must cross the sea into a deadly part of Laith and find the solution before Perin’s hunger overtakes him.


Mini Book Breakdown

This is the last book in this series and I really hate to see it go as this world just feel so unique, dark, and yet so freaking romantic! I wish I could get more from this world but I really do like the ending and felt everything was wrapped up better than I could've hoped for! 

Plus, it's got zombies... I mean, come on! You know it's gonna be good!

The Chase & The Risk - 2 Book Reviews

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

 Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing? He knows where to find me.

Mini Review - Angel's Blood

USA Today bestselling author Nalini Singh introduces a world of beauty and bloodlust, where angels hold sway over vampires…

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she’s the best—but she doesn’t know if she’s good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, only one thing is clear—failure is not an option…even if the task is impossible.

Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other…and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break…



Book Breakdown

After I finished this book I sat back and wondered to myself, "Why did I take so long to read this book?" Because it's so good! I do think the romance was a wee rushed but that's my only knit-pick! Everything else is perfectly wonderful! You can never go wrong with a Naini Singh book, NEVER!

It's a fun novel that always keeps your interest, from the pain and suffering of Elena's past to hunting for vampires, to the romance that is really the heart of this story. I love her character, she's not scared to stand up for herself but she knows her limits. She's not supergirl but damn if she's not one strong badass female!

Plus, it's got vampires and angels. It's my perfect little paranormal dream come to life. The world is well flushed out and I know it's only going to get better as this series goes on. I can't wait to see the sass that Elena will give Raphael and the stuff they're going to get into next. 

I can't wait to read more of this series! Bring it on!

The Lucky Ones - Review

How do you put yourself back together when it seems like you've lost it all?

May is a survivor. But she doesn't feel like one. She feels angry. And lost. And alone. Eleven months after the school shooting that killed her twin brother, May still doesn't know why she was the only one to walk out of the band room that day. No one gets what she went through--no one saw and heard what she did. No one can possibly understand how it feels to be her.

Zach lost his old life when his mother decided to defend the shooter. His girlfriend dumped him, his friends bailed, and now he spends his time hanging out with his little sister...and the one faithful friend who stuck around. His best friend is needy and demanding, but he won't let Zach disappear into himself. Which is how Zach ends up at band practice that night. The same night May goes with her best friend to audition for a new band.

Which is how May meets Zach. And how Zach meets May. And how both might figure out that surviving could be an option after all.

Ruthless Gods - Review


Darkness never works alone...

Nadya doesn’t trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn’t belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who--and what--he’s become.

As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. They’re pieces on a board, being orchestrated by someone… or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet—those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.





Book Breakdown 

I was given this title in exchange for an honest review.

I KNEW IT!!! I KNEW IT!!!! I TELL YOU THAT I KNEW IT!!! I won't say what I knew because spoilers but I knew it! You'll see if you decide to read this book.

Now, let's dive into this one, shall we? It's just as dark, gritty and rather hopeless feeling as the first one. Which I'll admit made me more depressed with everything that is going on in the world right now. But something this book does well is it gives that tiny spark of hope so you'll keep going, just praying something comes along to break the darkness that gathers all around. It's perfectly gothic and chilling.

Now, it is longer than the first and can take a wee bit of time to get into it. At least it did for me, but once it does get going.... boy! It doesn't stop and that ending just has me feeling all sorts of stuff! I can't wait for the next one!

Fury Unleashed By N.J. Walters - Review

Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky––but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.

Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. Just a hundred years to go. When Hades makes her a new offer––that’s definitely too good to be true––she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.

Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.
