"Dragon's Redemption" [Dragon Lore Series, Book 2] by Eden Ashe

Author's Book Description : The one female he isn't supposed to want, is the only one he's ever needed.

When her brother goes missing, everything in Lily Cage’s world turns upside down. Born a Hunter female, the last thing she needs is an attraction to Dallas, the scariest dragon in existence. The one known as The Destroyer. With peace between the Hunters and Dragons hanging by a thread, one wrong move on Lily or Dallas’s part could catapult them all back into war. But with Dallas playing by his own rules and someone on the outside decimating her life, they have a choice–stand and fight, or lose everything they never realized they wanted.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! About a thousand years ago, Dallas (The Destroyer) lost his family and potential mate to a hunter wiping them out. Now, at his King’s wedding, he meets a hunter who will change his life forever by making him wish for more. Yet, is he willing to sacrifice everything for this little hunter?

Intense and dramatic, this intriguing novel keeps its readers gripped in suspense until the very end! While I loved Dallas, Lily, and their developing relationship I had a hard time following the secondary plot, probably because this was the first novel in this series that I’d read. However, even with the confusion and at times feeling like the secondary plot dragged a bit, I absolutely could NOT get enough of Dallas and Lily! Together they made a dynamic duo who fit each other perfectly. I’d love to read more about them as this series continues.

I recommend this novel to those looking for a highly suspenseful, slightly erotic, paranormal dragon romance!!

“So you want me to love you, but you refuse to feel anything more than like for me?”
He worked his jaw. “I’m assuming by the look on your face yes is the wrong answer?”
She growled at him. An honest-to-the-gods growl that made him smile as fire and temper and the need to hurt him leapt into her eyes. There it was. He’d known she had magic buried inside of her somewhere.
“Yes,” she ground out. “It’s the wrong answer.” ~ within Chapter 16

Disappointmentville: The Witch-Game Series, Book 1

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 973 KB | Expected Release Date: August 4, 2015 | Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing | Obtained: Clean Teen Publishing

"Crushed" [The Witch-Game Series, Book 1] by Kasi Blake (aka K. C. Blake)

Author's Book Description : The Noah girls have beauty, powers, and brains.

They use all three to play their games.

They blow the dust,

the boys are crushed,

and no one is ever the same.

Each year the Noah girls play a secret game— Crushed. The rules are simple.

1. Use wisdom to pick your target. The boy can’t be too weak or too strong-willed.

2. Blow the enchanted dust into your target’s face to enchant (Crush) him.

3. Give verbal commands and assign them tasks to perform throughout the year. The more tasks completed, the stronger the witch’s power grows.

4. At the end of the year, the witch with the most power wins cold, hard cash.

As if being a witch in high school isn’t complicated enough, Kristen picks the wrong boy to Crush. Zach is tall, handsome, and a little scary. Her Crush spell isn’t working on him like it has with the others. In fact, he is behaving the opposite of every other boy she’s Crushed, hating her instead of adoring her. Something is definitely wrong. After someone attempts to kill her, Kristen realizes there is more at risk than a few hundred dollars. She may be betting with her life.

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. Going into her senior year of high school, Kristen is optimistic that this year will be great. However, from the first day things go from okay to terrible…
  • Her nemesis, Gina, calls her out in front of everyone.
  • Her sister bets her to “crush” Zach, one of the hottest/scariest boys in school, which leads to another rivalry unintended between her and her sister.
  • Now she has to deal with a Zach, who isn’t acting like a “crushed guy” should and instead of falling for her, he seems to hate her even more. Except for those rare occasions when he’s charming her…
From that day on life as Kristen knows it will never be the same. But will it be all for the best or will things just keep getting worse?

Wowza goes the drama! Suspenseful from beginning to end, this novel keeps its readers on their toes. It’s about witch/wizard families and what they’ll do for one another. While this dynamic cast is quiet entertaining, they also overload this novel with so much drama that if you don’t appreciate it then it’ll drag the readers down. That is actually what happened to me, it had too much drama for me to really like it. Nevertheless, Kristen, Zach, and their siblings create enough havoc in each other’s lives that if you are typically interested in dramatically suspenseful YA paranormal novels, that have a few romantic scenes included, then this might be more suited to you then me.

This wasn’t my type of novel. Yet, as I stated above this is for those who like suspenseful paranormal YA novels.

Book Teaser(s) :
She wanted his jacket?
Zach blinked at her, completely thrown by her softly spoken command. She had obviously lost her mind. He didn’t like anyone touching his jacket, let alone wearing it. It had been the last gift his mother had given him before she’d died. Kristen Noah could pry it out of his cold, lifeless fingers if she wanted it. He certainly wasn’t handing it over to her like a lovesick idiot.
He’d planned to play along with her silly game, but now he didn’t think he could. He wasn’t going to pretend to date her. She was taking things too far. If she continued to push, he was going to push back. ~ within Chapter 3 - titled 'VENGEFUL'

Zach picked up the two champagne flutes, handed one to her, and lifted the other to make a toast. “To us.”
She sniffed the golden, bubbly contents.
“It’s non-alcoholic champagne,” he said with a wry smile. “What can I say? I’m a wild man.”
She giggled. ~ within Chapter 17 - titled 'BREATHLESS'
