Catherine O’Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of Dominance and submission in college.

***Amy #NerdGirlAmy’s Review***

And in this book it definitely delivers! I found the story fascinating! We get a close look into the character’s lives a few… Continue reading

Synopsis

The Red Man is coming …

Five years after her sister disappeared, seventeen-year-old Adrienne finds the strength to return to her father’s home in New Orleans. But soon after she arrives, the mark of a curse appears on her, leaving her worried. Will she be the next victim of a four-hundred-year old family curse … the next to be claimed by a serial killer roaming the back alleys of the city?

 The day before his senior year begins, Jayden is given a skeleton key passed down through his family for generations — a gruesome reminder of how his ancestors betrayed their own people and sold them into slavery. He doesn’t believe in the curse the key allegedly bears and puts it away with the intention of forgetting about its message. Until he meets Adrienne, a girl he’s compelled to for more reasons than her beauty.

 He’s not the only one who notices her. A man in a skeleton mask and a voodoo gang member… Continue reading

She knows Rave likes her a lot–so why won’t he kiss her?

**Review By Amy From The Nerd Girl Page**

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*

“I will never let you fall. I will stand up for you forever. I’ll be there for you, through it all. Even if saving you sends me to heaven.” -The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, ‘Your Guardian Angel.’

Landon Hastings has lived a life of luxury.
When he starts to question things in his life, he leans on Sawyer Wexler, the new girl in school that intrigues him.

Neither of them can deny their feelings for one another, yet they don’t push in trying to go too fast.
Sawyer has a past that still haunts her, and Landon has a future that he has worked his whole life for.

Can they accept the things they cannot change and push through the obstacles in their lives?
And is it worth it?

My Review:
Before you even get into the actual story you get the Prologue and that little bit was amazing and already has you hooked! I knew I was in for a really great book and I wasn’t the least bit disappointed!
The story about a girl named Sawyer who went through… Continue reading

* I received a copy of this book, from the author, in exchange for an honest review. *

3.5 Stars
 
Synopsis: 
It’s been almost a year, but Avery hasn’t gotten over her father’s death in a tragic accident. He was the only one who understood her special abilities, which he instructed her to always keep secret. Who can she talk to now that he’s gone? One of her friends isn’t who he seems to be, and he warns her that her father and she are faeries, and that the Fairy world has been hunting for her. Worse, once they find her, she’ll have to stand trial on behalf of her father for a crime she’s sure he’d never have committed. Her only choice is to figure out who actually did commit the crime so she can exonerate her father… And herself.
REVIEW:
This review is really hard for me to write as it is a good book with a great ideas but it was just hard to read.  The real problem for me was the first half of the book, it was extremely confusing and not that entertaining.  … Continue reading
