Feasted On: The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress by Lucy Monroe

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 215 KB | Release Date: June 2010 | Publisher: Harlequin Presents

"The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress" by Lucy Monroe

My Book Summary : Alexandra (Xandra or Allie) just found out a week ago that she is pregnant, and now she is nervous as hell to tell her lover Dimitri about it and about coming clean about her past. They've been together for a year now but they both have things about themselves that they just have yet to tell each other. But she is going to do so now and hope that everything will work out for the best...

However, when Dimitri comes home he has some news of his own that he isn't happy about but he must do ... he must brake up with her, as his grandfather made him promise that he would finally take up his responsibilities and marry the girl that he's known for years, even if he doesn't want to. Once they see each other though talking is the last thing on their minds, but after their "fun" Dimitri drops the bomb that they have to brake up because he has to marry someone else, before Alexandra is able to even form the words for her news. She is devastated and runs to the bathroom, but once she walks back into the bedroom, she realizes he left her. After crying for who knows how long she calls Dimitri to tell him that they still have things that they need to discuss, so he reluctantly agrees to meet her at a restaurant. Once there she tells him that she loves him and that she's pregnant, but emotions are running high for both of them, making it so he gets angry with her believing first that she was lying until she shows him proof then he believes that she cheated on him and then all hell brakes loose...

Even after the argument between them Alexandra knows she still loves him, but decides that he must not care for her, so she heads back to her family's place to try to move on with her life .... even though it's harder then it seems.

When Dimitri finally comes to his senses and searches for Alexandra, coming up missing, he desperately searches for her, promising to himself that he will make her his wife once he finds her .... if is not too late.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! Charming and enjoyable from beginning to end!!! The relationship between the main characters is palpable, they have such duty to their families that when all these things hit them at once they don't know how to behave so they do anything to find the control they both loose instantly. I enjoyed reading about such passionate and prideful people ... as soon as I started the story I didn't want to put it down!

Book Teaser(s) :
"But you did not wish to marry well?"
"I wanted to marry a man I loved, not a bank account."
"Then it should please you to marry me. If the words you spoke at Chez Renée were true, I can give you both."
"They were true then," so much so that parts of her heart were still cracked and bleeding after the abrupt was they'd broken up, "but I don't love you anymore."
"I refuse to believe a woman of such strong character could fall out of love at the first sign of adversity."
She was beginning to have a horrible suspicion he was right, but she wasn't about to feed his smug pride admitting it. ~ within Chapter 5

Feasted On: Night Huntress World Series, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 371 | Release Date: February 2010 | Publisher: Avon Books

"First Drop Of Crimson" [Night Huntress World Series, Book 1] by Jeaniene Frost

My Book Summary : A little over a year ago Denise and her husband, Randy, went to a New Year's Eve party, at her best friend Cat's place, that turned into one of the most terrible nights of Denise's life, as that is the night of her husband's death. Since then, Denise has made a point of avoiding anything to do with the supernatural world, even if that means cutting out Cat from her life. But when her relatives start dieing around her, it does seem unusual right until it's almost to late for her, she finds out that someone is killing her family, and she just happens to be his next target. So, once she gets home she puts a call into Cat & Cat's husband, Bones, but since they haven't talked in a couple of months she finds that both of their cell phones have been disconnected within that time. Hoping to find someone to help her, Denise decides on calling the only other vampire she knows who might help her named Spade, who is also a friend of Cat & Bones.

Over the phone Spade doesn't completely believe that Denise and her family are being targeted by anyone based on description of the perpetrator she saw, but as a favor he tells her that he'll be at her place by the following afternoon to check it out. However, even before he gets into her house he knows she wasn't lying and that he killer was/is a demon he just hopes that he isn't too late. Once he gets inside her house and finds her passed out on the floor, he looks her over to make sure she's okay. But when she comes, too she tells and shows him that she has been branded by the demon and was told that the only way to get the brands off and to save the remaining members of her family is to find her relative that started it all named Nathanial.

Soon she finds that because of the brands she has powers and a growing appetite that she has to get used to, Spade and her find themselves being drawn to each other that neither can ignore and neither are always sure that they want to ignore either, and more ...

Will Denise find Nathanial before she gets in too deep in the supernatural world? Or maybe she’ll find that once she’s there, there is no other place she’d rather be ... as long as Spade is never to far away ...

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars, sooo much better then I expected and hoped for!! I liked Denise and Spade (especially Spade) as secondary characters in the Night Huntress series but I loved them as the main characters in this book!! I can't wait to read what will happen to them and their friends now that things have certainly changed for all of them. =0) This novel was action packed, addictive, and touching ... along with some very night romance scenes. So, if you enjoyed the stories of Cat & Bones in the Night Huntress series then I recommend you checking out this book too!

Book Teaser(s) :
"When we find Nathanial, I want you to leave," Denise said softly. "Raum will know you set the salt bombs. He'll want revenge, and if he can track me, he'll know the second we find Nathanial. Then he'll probably try to kill you. He won't need you anymore."
Raum wouldn't need Denise anymore, either, and she knew that as well as he did. Even if the demon didn't have a grudge against her---and Spade doubted that, after today---Raum could kill her just for amusement.
"I have a plan for that as well," he said.
Her hazel eyes narrowed. "What?" ~ within Chapter 14
Black Jack's eyes flicked with interest to Denise. Spade saw it and stopped himself before he bared his fangs in instinctive possessiveness. Instead he tossed in a few chips and ran his hand along Denise's side one more time, meeting the vampire's gaze in challenge. Mine.
Black Jack's lips curled and he tilted his head in acknowledgment. One of the strongest vampire urges was territorialism. No vampire would tolerate someone ogling his property---unless that property was being offered. Denise, Spade had clearly indicated, was not. ~ within Chapter 16

Feasted On: Baby Bonanza by Maureen Child

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 471 KB | Release Date: September 2008 | Publisher: Silhouette Desire

"Baby Bonanza" by Maureen Child

My Book Summary : A little over a year ago Jenna had a fling with her boss, Nick, while she was working on one of his cruise ships. However, when he found out that she was his employee instead of a guest, like he originally thought, he broke up their relationship and fired her. Since then Jenna's life has change and now she's back on one of Nick's cruise ships again, as a guest, on a mission to inform him that he is the father of her twin boys!! Over the year apart she has tried to contact him to let him know but he never returned/responded to any of her emails or phone calls, so a face-to-face is the way it's gotta be.

Yet, now that she is here she's as nervous as hell, but as soon as she confronts Nick she thinks that it'll all be over and okay ... he'll believe her, will be fine to just pay child support, and then they both can get back to their lives. However, it doesn't seem to work that way. For one, Nick doesn't believe her at all so they need to take a DNA test to be sure, which is fine since she expected as much but now she has to wait a couple of days before the results come in and Nick doesn't want her out of his sight. Then to top it off he already admits to himself (before the results come) that if they are his sons then he is going to want more then just to pay child support, he'll want time with them too and if he thinks Jenna won't allow that then he'll take them away from her.

While the waiting is on for the results both Jenna and Nick realizes things about each other that they didn't know last year, and get closer together. Could this mean a happily-ever-after for them or will they each feel like being together is a big mistake so they'll just do what's right for the kids?

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! =0) In truth I am surprised I enjoy this book as much as I did, and for a quick read, it was a great book!! The connection between Nick and Jenna is great to read, and seeing how they grow as characters in such a short time is fun too. This is one romance novel I who recommend to everyone! Especially right now that it's FREE through Amazon.com!

Book Teaser(s) :
"You were dancing, alone in the dark," he said as if she hadn't spoken at all. As if he were prompting her memory. "You didn't notice me, so I watched you as you swayed to the music, tipping your head back, your hair sliding across your shoulders."
"Nick..."
"You has a smile on your face," he said, his voice lower now, deeper, and she wouldn't have thought that was possible. "As if you were looking up into the eyes of your lover."
Jenna swallowed hard and shifted uneasily as her body blossomed with heat. With need. "Don't do this, Nick..."
"And I wanted to be the lover you smiled at. The lover you danced with in the dark." ~ within Chapter 6

Disappointmentville: Playing with Fire Series, Book 3

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 499 KB | Release Date: August 2010 | Publisher: Samhain Publishing

"Scandalous" [Playing with Fire Series, Book 3] by Karen Erickson

My Book Summary : Ever since she was a teenager, Alexa (Lex or Lexi), has had a crush on Eric (her older brother's boyfriend). Now years later at her brother's wedding she greets Eric again planning on catching up. However, what she didn't expect was to find her attraction to him to still be strong or to find that even though he has another boyfriend now, he is finding her more attractive by the second. When they end up kissing each other, a little later at the reception, the sparks ignite between them, but once they separate Eric says they've made a mistake and walks away from her.

A few days later Alexa finds a voicemail message from Eric on her cell asking if she would like to meet up for drinks with his boyfriend (Brandon) and himself. She accepts and meets them at a restaurant, only to find that they have ulterior motives. Which are that Brandon was intrigued about Eric's kiss with her and was wondering if she would like to have some fun with them for a night?

If she says yes she might find the thing that will ease the restlessness she's been feeling lately ... they all might fall in love ... or they could ruin a good relationship between the guys and a growing friendship between each other .... would it all be worth it? Maybe so ...

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. My favorite character was Eric ... he sounded like a great guy. The plot was good but didn't end up the way I wanted it to which is the reason for the low rating. I think if it ended the way I wanted then I would have given it a 4 out of 5 stars. *shrug* But if you don't mind reading a bit of m/m or m/f/m action then I think you'll be interested in this book.

Book Teaser(s) :
The number was unfamiliar, and she frowned, punching a button so she could read the text message.
I want to see you
Frowning, she immediately texted back.
Who is this?
Her answer came back quick.
Correction. We both want to see you. Tonight.
Her skin sizzled, and she glanced about the room, thankful no one was lurking about.
Eric is that you? ~ within Chapter 6

Feasted On: You Wish by Mandy Hubbard

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 695 KB | Release Date: August 2010 | Publisher: Razorbill/Penguin

"You Wish" by Mandy Hubbard

My Book Summary : Kayla is what she likes to call herself, a glass-half-empty kind of girl. To her nothing seems to work out the way she plans it, and just to prove her point, she ends up with the worst birthday (and birthday party) imaginable. But she finds out the next day that when she blew out her candles the night before and wished, "I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin’ do." she'll be in for a big surprise (and quite a few more) since her wish came true!!

Now she has to deal with a life-size My Little Pink pony, a "best friend" she hasn't spoken to in ages, a guy who resembles a Ken doll that's stalking her, and more ... but will she be able to stop all of these wishes before one of them could ruin her life? Like say, stop them before the one where she wished for Ben Mackenzie to kiss her is granted, since even though she has had a major crush on him from afar for about three years now, he also happens to be her best friend's boyfriend. =0/

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Kayla is hilarious, you just can't help but route for her. It definitely made me think about my previous wishes that I've made over the years ... and in truth I am a little scared now if they actually came true. =0) This story is cute, funny, and drama filled!! If your a YA lover then I definitely recommend this one for you!

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Prada & Prejudice

Book Teaser(s) :
I stare at her for a second, realizing my life is about to get tossed in the toilet if I don't figure this out. "Okay. So, I have you . . . a pony . . . gumballs . . ."
I sigh and sink onto the floor. There's a fourth wish waiting for me. Today. Somewhere. I don't even want to guess what kind of havoc I'm going to encounter. They're getting worse every day. ~ within Chapter 15

Feasted On: Legacy Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 852 KB | Release Date: October 2009 | Publisher: Samhain Publishing

"Alexandra's Legacy" [Legacy Series, Book 1] by N. J. Walters

My Book Summary : Alexandra (Alex) thought that today would be just an ordinary day for her, until a man named Joshua rushes into her father's garage saying he's come to take her to a place called Wolf Creek, and she finds that there are some things about her heritage that her father has been keeping quite about. Now Alex's father explains to her that he is actually a werewolf, making her a half-breed and what she's been feeling lately is her going into "heat" soon. Then to top it off because of her going into heat all of the single male wolves within a 100 radius (or more) start tracking her fighting for the right to be her mate, and then there are some people/wolves who are coming after her just because she's a half-breed and don't think she should exist.

Of course after this was all explained to her, they (her father, Joshua, and her) get ambushed in her dad's home by those very people/wolves that are either out to kidnap or kill her. So, they split up in hopes of out running the killers, her father going one way while Joshua and her are going another but both planning on heading to the Wolf Creek pack in North Carolina. While on the run Joshua and Alex have a growing attraction between them, but Joshua plans on trying to keep that attraction at bay until he reaches his pack so he'll be able to publicly claim her as his mate.

Will all three of them make it safely to Wolf Creek before their enemies get them? Will Alex be accepted into the Wolf Creek pack warmly and will she want to embrace her wolf?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! I saw this book recommended to me on Amazon for a while, and I'm soo happy that I finally decided to read it!! It was an entertaining & sweet book! I loved the relationships between Alex & her father, as well as the growing relationship between Alex & Joshua! Plus, I really liked the since of community that James (Alex's dad) found he had when everything/everyone started coming at them ... it was truly heartwarming. Then add in a little heat between Alex & Joshua to read about and you got one happy reader on your hands. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
Joshua grinned even as he growled into the receiver. "Your day couldn't have been as bad as mine so shut up and listen."
The man on the other end snorted. "I saw just how hard your day was, little brother. I saw you talking with the woman in an alleyway this morning. If you're smart, you'll claim that woman you've been running all over town with. Fuck her so long and hard, she'll never want any other wolf but you." He paused. "It's what I'd do if I were in your position."
"You're not in my position." The thought of his brother fucking Alex brought a red haze to his eyes. "It wouldn't be fair to Alex."
"And you're all about honor, are you not, my brother?" ~ within Chapter 9

  • "Misguided Angel" [Blue Bloods Series, Book 5] by Melissa de la Cruz
    Publication Released Date: October 26, 2010

    Author's Book Description:
      After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the five remaining gates that guard the earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silver Bloods.

      Back in New York, Mimi has been elected Regent of a crumbling coven. Struggling with her heartache over the loss of Kingsley and with her overwhelming desire to destroy Jack, she must focus all of her energy on a perilous new threat. Vampires are being abducted and their captors are planning to burn them alive online...for all the world to see. Help arrives in the form of Deming Chen, a Venator from Shanghai, who must untangle the web of deceptions before the killers strike again.

      As the young vampires struggle for the survival of the coven, they uncover a deadly secret, a truth first discovered by Schuyler’s mother during the Renaissance but kept buried for centuries. And as the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler to a terrible choice that will ultimately map the destiny of her heart.

    When I started reading this series last year I wasn't sure if I'd like it, but with this new take on vampires that the author has, would draw any YA lover to read her series. So ... I am addicted to this series and I cannot wait for this book to come out!! I hope Mimi will get her man back ... and I hope Schuyler will be able to keep her man. =0)

    Disappointmentville: The Breeds Series, Book 21

    Format: Paperback | Pages: 342 | Release Date: April 2010 | Publisher: Berkley® Sensation

    "Lion's Heat" [The Breeds Series, Book 21] by Lora Leigh

    My Book Summary : Jonas just got a new personal assistant, named Rachel. She a hardworking, determined, redhead, and at first glance he knows that she is pregnant with another man's baby. Also, just by looking at her, Jonas knows she's his mate. However, with him being "created" instead of being "born" there are reasons involved with that where he will never claim her as his mate.

    But how much can he hold off on claiming her as his mate? Especially when her and her daughter become targets because of just being associated with him. So, he brings them back to Sanctuary so he can protect them better, while dealing the mating heat that starts to burn within him to have him claim her. How much longer will he last?

    My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars, it was okay. I mean it's not the typical shifter books that I have read, so yes it was interesting but it didn't completely hold my interest. However, I think what I didn't like most about the book was Rachel. I mean I liked her and Jonas together. BUT -- for all of Rachel's knowledge of the shifter breeds and knowing that she was working for them before she even knew that she was Jonas' mate .... she kept denying the "claim" between herself and Jonas for sooo long that I really was getting sick of it after a while. =0/

    Side Note :: Just so you know this is the first novel in this series that I've read SO -- if you've liked the other books in this series ... this one might not be your favorite ... but I think you'll like it better then I did.

    Book Teaser(s) :
    "Jonas..." She licked her suddenly dry lips as he moved closer.
    "Do you know what I am?" he growled, his tone so rough, so primal, it sent shivers racing down her spine. "You don't even know the beast that draws you, do you, Rachel?"
    "Running me off, are you? What about all this 'me Breed, you mate' crap you're always spouting?" ~ within Chapter 10

    Feasted On: A Goblin Wars Book, Book 1

    Format: Paperback | Pages: 304 | Release Date: November 2010 | Publisher: Clarion Books

    "Tyger Tyger" [A Goblin Wars Book, Book 1] by Kersten Hamilton ( I read this as a part of We Love YA! A young adult arc tour site)

    My Book Summary : Teagan has her summer (and her future) all mapped out, but when her "cousin" Finn moves into her house those plans suddenly change. The day before Finn shows up Teagan's best friend Abby tells her that she needs to be careful because she had a dream where a bunch of goblins (like the ones in Teagan's mothers story books .. and worse) are going to be coming after Teagan soon. When she is told this she laughs it off, but when Finn shows up and explains he's the Mac Camhaill (the last in his family line that's a goblin hunter), Teagan starts to rethink about what her friend told her. Then, not long after Finn stays, there she starts to see some goblins/sidhe of her own that hurt some small animals she works with at the zoo to her own mother.

    Finn blames himself and leaves. However, when summer is over Finn returns because of a request from his grandmother. But once he shows up, he realizes he can't complete his request and has to take Teagan and her little brother Aiden back to his grandmother's place to get help. And in doing so, they set out on an adventure/rescue mission that will change Teagan's life for forever ....

    My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! After waiting for this book for a while ... and reading the book's description again and again ... I wasn't sure I was going to like this book ... however, as soon as I started reading it I was pleasantly surprised and got addicted to the storyline, the characters, and everything right away. Teagan learns about herself in this book and grows as a character more so then I would have thought. Aiden is adorable ... I would love to hear him sing! And Finn is the bad boy with the kind soul you would just love to have him all to yourself. *sigh*

    So ... if you’re a fan of myth, magic, and YA romance then this is the book for you!! It was a great new take on fairies/goblins, angels, and all of the mythical beings that have been written about lately! I cannot wait to see where the author will take this series! =0)

    Book Teaser(s) :
    "'Rain or shine'?"
    "That's the way it sounds." Raynor nodded. "But not the way it's spelled." He showed Aiden his badge.
    Aiden studied the letters, and then the man's face. "I can't read. What did you eat for dinner last night?"
    "Me?" Raynor said. "Pizza."
    "Did you find it in a Dumpster?"
    Teagan pinched him, and he whirled to look at her.
