Elemental: The First by Alexandra May

Just who is Halika Dacome?
To Rose Frost, moving every six months is normal. Another new town here, another new school there, her ability to adapt is as easy as breathing. But everything changes when her parents go overseas and Rose moves in with her grandmother. She enjoys meeting new friends and catching up with old ones from her childhood holidays — except now she must hide a precious secret from everyone, a gift from birth that defies modern day science.

Her dreams become riddled with a warrior woman called Halika Dacome, but are they visions or messages from the future? She starts her own investigation but encounters more questions than answers. Living right on the edge of Warminster in Wiltshire, England, doesn’t help with its folklore and myths about strange lights in the sky and ghost stories of the Salisbury Plain and Stonehenge.

Not only that, her troubles really take hold one night when the mysterious Aiden Deverill with his alluring smile, his gorgeous dark looks and hypnotizing blue eyes, saves her from a freak fire. Or did he?

For Rose, her new life is beginning but she soon realizes that despite assurances people are not always what they seem. What she always believed to be a happy family and a friendly town soon turns on its head when she discovers that her family secret, Aiden Deverill and the truth behind Halika Dacome is at the heart of the whole conspiracy.

I give this one 4 stars. I liked the story and it seemed to flow pretty well. It didn't grab my attention in the first few chapters, but I was hooked mid way through. I was eager to see how the story would unfold, but it seemed to do so slowly. It did all come together in the end and it did leave me wondering how long I will have to wait for the next one. This one wasn't a quick read for me, but it was good and well worth my time.

Nexus by CL Parker

Have you read the first two books in this series? If you have, you know that CL is a fantastic writer that has created a world with guardian angels, guardians of the light, witches, demons and a diva extraordinaire. This third book has been available for just a short time and is already raking in the 5 star reviews.

"I simply adore this series, and recommend that everyone read it! The SUPERNOVA SAGA is a unique take on the paranormal and has characters that will become your favorites for years to come." ~ Literal Addiction

"Nexus is a roller coaster filled with so many emotions, but that's the reason I love it so much. I will agree with a couple of my blogging friends, this book is defiantly the best in the series. C.L. Parker took the last book in her series and left with a bang." ~ Ali's bookshelf

In this final installment of the Supernova saga, Kerrigan and Dominic have fulfilled their destinies and are spending their time raising and training their very special daughter Victoria. Tori, with her half guardian of the light and half guardian angel blood, is to be the guardian of mankind. (But no pressure, right?) Good thing she will have help. The guardian of the guardian, will be there to help her defend mankind. And it doesn't hurt that he's smokin' hot! Naturally they are drawn to each other and their attraction deepens the more time they spend together. 
What no one knows though is that there is another man that Tori loves. He's been there her whole life, but is he really what he seems? Tori must choose one, and the fate of the world rests on her choice.
I have to say that this was the perfect ending for this series. The story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I was so sure I had it all figured out and then BAM! Nothing was as I thought it would be in the end. If you read the first two books in this saga, I'm sure you will love the way CL ended it with Nexus. I would definitely give it 5 stars!

C.L. Parker is a paranormal romance author who writes smut and knows how to use it. She smokes like a cowboy, drinks Patron Silver like a fish, and cusses like a sailor. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.

Release Me a new erotic novel by J. Kenner ~ Review

I know it's not a paranormal novel, but I love this author's other books so much (paranormal, fantasy, mystery, romance) that I just couldn't resist. Release Me hits shelves today! 1-1-13.

Nikki Fairchild has moved to Los Angeles to escape her past. Damien Stark is powerful, rich and devastatingly sexy. Their meeting at an art exhibit ignites a spark that neither can resist, but will both of their dark pasts keep them apart?

If you are looking for a fantastic erotic novel, look no further.  It is HOT! I had no trouble getting lost in this thrilling book. Nikki is the kind of woman to admire. Tough, smart, witty and genuinely likeable.

There are similarities to other popular erotic fiction novels out there, but I feel that the lead character in this story had so much more depth and didn't make me want to reach into the book to bitch slap her.  That fact alone set it apart from the rest and made it so much more enjoyable.

I enjoyed this book tremendously and I am eagerly awaiting the next. 

Buy Release Me kindle edition  and paperback from Amazon

Happy reading!!
