Seeds of Iniquity (In the Company of Killers, #4) by J.A. Redmerski

Seeds of Iniquity (In the Company of Killers, #4)Seeds of Iniquity by J.A. Redmerski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+++++++++ I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH STARS

Okay, first off, I was scared by the reviews. I love J.A. Redmerski, she’s the type of author I will read ANTYHING by so when I read the mixed reviews. I was apprehensive at first. I just didn’t want to be disappointment.

I WAS AMAZED, SHOCKED, IN AWED, LOVED

This was a fantastic read and if you need something to slap you on the head and make you go crazy with good angst then SEEDS of INIQUITY is for you.

I was surprised on how short this one was, but in all honesty it was perfect, just the right amount of Izabel and Victor. Seeds of Iniquity had a little bit of mixture of all the characters in Victor’s new Order, but this is mostly Victor and Izabel’s story.

I would tell you to read this without knowing anything, but if you must know, the story starts out with Nora. Nora kidnapped people who are related to the people in the Order. She’s held captive by Victor’s people and now Victor has to find out where the captives are.

Nora only wants one thing. She wants to learn everyone’s secrets. She will talk to each person in the order, once she is done learning each one’s darkest secrets, she will tell them where she held the captives.

It’s a simple plot and it makes such a great read. As each person goes in to talk to Nora, everyone will go out a little different. You will learn everyone’s secrets. I was on the edge of my seat THE ENTIRE TIME. I felt like I couldn’t take any more intense emotions, but I kept on reading because I couldn’t put it down.

If you love this series as much as me, you will get everything you are looking for. You will get more glimpses to each character and the buildup for the next book.

If you have not started this series or this book, then stop what you are doing and read this NOW

When It Rains (Rain, #1) by Lisa De Jong

When It Rains (Rain, #1)When It Rains by Lisa De Jong
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Melt your breath away stars

I’ve put When it Rains on the back burner because it’s a love triangle read, but I was forced to read it and let me say this…

I’M SO GLAD I DID!!!!


The emotions this book made me feel…

Crazy, Intense, Angst, Heart-break, Happy

In one day Kate’s life is changed dramatically. Her best friend Beau doesn’t know where his fun loving best friend went, but he’s desperate to get her back. When Beau leaves for college Kate is trying to move forward with her life, but can’t leave the past behind. That is until Asher comes into her small town.

Review

Yes, this is a love triangle read, but it’s one that is tolerable. I didn’t find Kate annoying or stupid. I found When it Rain very endearing and heart-warming.

Beau is the boy next door and you will love him. He’s sweet, perfect and is always there for Kate, but he’s going to college and Kate does not want to. When I first started this, I thought to myself, what is Kate doing? She has a perfect guy in her life, why is she pushing him away. But you really do understand why she does what she does.

I was nervous reading Kate’s interactions with Asher because I didn’t think I could move past Beau, but you will fall in love with Asher too. It’s cute reading Asher and Kate’s interactions because she’s so skittish and Asher is just so new and different, they make the perfect combination.

I may not be into superheroes, but if I were, Asher would be it for me.

We tend to regret our yesterdays, live in our todays and forget about our tomorrows, but I’m trying to cherish them all


There’s a lot that happens When it Rains, the book shifts probably twice before it ends and oh boy it’s a roller coaster, but the ride is so worth it.

It’s an emotional gripping tale about moving from past issues and falling in love. I highly recommend!

Once upon a Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club, #4) by Jessica Clare

Once upon a Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club, #4)Once upon a Billionaire by Jessica Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Fairy Tale Stars

OH.MY.GOD!!!! You want a cute cute cute SUPER CUTE read then Once Upon a Billionaire is for you!!!

I really love this series.

Summary

So there’s Griffin and he’s kind of like royalty for this made up country. He has to go back to his homeland because his sister is getting married. His assistant isn’t able to make it and so he needs a replacement, FAST!

Hunter is sick and is able to lend his assistant to Griffin. Griffin agrees.

The thing is, Maylee isn’t your typical gal. She’s country, poor and doesn’t know anything about refinement, but Griffin is stuck with her.

Review

I just can’t get over this book. First off, it’s totally funny. Yes, I’m talking like a valley girl, but when I think about Once Upon a Billionaire, it just brings smiles and giggles to my face.

How funny is the summary? There’s stuck up Griffin who is snobby and looks down on anyone who doesn’t have class, but he’s stuck with is hillbilly assistant! Too funny. You would think I would get annoyed by Maylee because she’s so stereotypical, but I do not. I love her!

I loved it when she put the commentary shampoo bottles in her luggage so the maids would refill the bathroom each day. Come on, EVERYONE does that, we just don’t talk about it.

Griffin and Maylee have the cutest banter. Griffin wants someone who works a certain way, like someone who uses a lap top instead of post its, but Maylee knows she is good at her job and doesn’t need Griffin cutting her down.

There’s plenty of drama with Griffin’s mixed feelings and his judgemental family. I also love how there’s a slow romance brewing. It’s not like bam sex, it’s a lot of high tension and adorable moments. I gobble the pages up like mad.

If you enjoy this series, you will love this one!

Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

Burying Water (Burying Water, #1)Burying Water by K.A. Tucker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Intense Stars

It’s a Tucker book, YAY!!!! I read anything by Tucker, so when I learned she was writing a new series, I was BEYOND excited.

The thing with favorite authors, you tend to have super high expectations. I overall enjoyed Burying Water. I finished it in one sitting and it was very intense, but it wasn’t a SUPER hit I am use to. I think it’s because of the layout.

I’m not a fan of flashbacks. I can’t say it enough. It just irritates me and I find no pleasure in reading past and present tense. So this is my personal issue.

The beginning hits you with a bam and I just loved the prologue. Right away I felt like this was going to be a dark read and I love my dark reads.

Summary

I don’t want to give too much away because I think it’s best to go into Burying Water without knowing anything, but basically it starts out with a woman almost on the brink of death. She is found by a man and he’s just distraught that she is almost dead because of him.

Rewind to the past, we learn there is a story between Jesse and Alex. Alex is married to a rich controlling jerk. She isn’t happy with her life, but doesn’t see a solution. Jesse is a nobody mechanic and sees Alex having car trouble one night.

Fast forward to the present, the woman left for dead is called Jane Doe. She doesn’t know who she is, but works hard to start over, damaged body and all.

Review

Burying Water started off great, but the beginning was a bit slow. There’s a bit of buildup. You have Jane Doe going through the emotions of getting better and meeting a bunch of people, like the nurses, doctors and the sheriff. To be honest I didn’t care for this part too much. I kind of read through it quickly. Call me crazy, but I only wanted to read about the main characters.

Then with the flip back to the past, I was really interested in how Jesse and Alex formed their relationship. And again, I didn’t get that spark and chemistry I usually get with Tucker reads. I was surprised on how I felt there was something lacking between Alex and Jesse. I felt like there was insta-lust and not that much interaction to warrant their feelings.

I wanted Burying Water to be a bit darker, because of the beginning was so gritty. I was waiting for the nasty flashbacks, the ones that would make me cringe, but I never got that.

As I got more into Burying Water and things picked up, I started to enjoy it more. I felt like I was closing in on the timeline gap and more of my questions were being answered. It also started to get very angsty and I really liked that.

The ending did feel a little too wrapped up and I thought there would be a book 2 that extended the story, but there isn’t. The book does end and you are left feeling overall happy, but like I said, I had very high expectations. I’m looking forward to the next book though.

Sweet Addiction (Sweet Addiction, #1) by Jessica Daniels

Sweet Addiction (Sweet Addiction, #1)Sweet Addiction by Jessica Daniels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Surprise Sweet Stars

For the longest time I didn’t want to pick up Sweet Addiction. I think the summary kind of turned me off, but this is the book that just couldn’t get off my mind.

If you want something, funny, great, hilarious, cute and just all around awesome, then sweet addiction is for you.

I gobbled this little sucker up

Dylan

Dylan owns a bakery and she’s crazy adorable, awesome, strong and smart. Think about those Heroines, who are insane, crazy and kind of just silly, well Dylan is the opposite of that. There’s so many times I thought Dylan would go cliché and do the things that is most obvious and annoying, but nope, it’s nip in the butt and the beautiful story moves forward.

I loved Dylan.

Reese

Do I like Reese because I have this crazy obsession for CPA’s? Well maybe, but that’s not the only reason. I love how Daniels makes geeky number guy, crazy awesome and swoon worthly. Yeah, I said it, he’s swoon worthly. Reese is the guy you want to meet, fall in love with and make babies with. He’s just sexy, smart and very readable.

Review

Dylan attends her ex’s wedding because she made the cake. She accidently falls into Reese’s lap and there the story begins. Dylan has crazy wedding sex with Reese in the bathroom and from there a non-serious relationship forms. Basically friends with benefits, but with only each other.

I usually don’t go for the friends-with-benefits storyline, but this one worked for me. Dylan tries really hard to keep her distance. She knows Reese is known to play the field and she can see that falling in love with Reese would be a very bad thing.

Reese just goes with the flow and I simply love it.

I wouldn’t say Sweet Addiction is too angsty, but just the right amount of steam and tension, two main things I look for in a read. I love how witty and funny the writing is. I read this in one sitting, it just simply perfect for me.

If you looking for another Seduction and Snacks, then Sweet Addiction s for you.
