Destiny of Angels by Wendy Steele

Image
Synopsis:

Traumatic events in her childhood, send Angel Parsons upon a different life path.

Fifteen years later, with the help of her new 'family' and the resurrected relationship with Jenny Parkes, her only friend from school, Angel confronts the perpetrators of her misery. Rather than seeking revenge and to free herself from her past, Angel uses the skills she has acquired to offer her persecutors the chance of redemption.

Will Angel fulfil her destiny and put her past behind her or will the demons she unleashes consume herself and her 'family' and leave her empty and alone once more?


My Review:

I purchased this book when it was free on amazon, but before that I received a copy from the author to give an honest review.

I feel really bad giving this book 3 stars. I honestly felt as though there was too much jumping around in the book between the characters. As soon as I would get into the story of say Jenny it would bring up Tiffany or Clara before it seemed the writing was…

The Vengeance of Mrs. Claus by: Anastasia Vitsky

Image
Synopsis:

In some countries, turning 21 means gaining the right to vote and drink alcoholic beverages. For Claire Labraun, the Christmas after her 21st birthday would be beyond her wildest imagination. 


Minelle and Matthew Labraun believed in a traditional marriage. Matthew was head of their household, and Minelle was his help-meet  When it came to raising their headstrong 21-year-old daughter, however, they found themselves at a loss. Minelle had always taught Claire to do the right thing for right’s sake. Claire, however, had different ideas. 

She rebelled against their rules, flaunted authority, and connived to get things she wanted. She had never been spanked in her life; Matthew and Minelle kept that adult privilege strictly between themselves. 

But this year, a visit from Santa plus Claire’s newly adult status would change her idea of Christmas forever.

Image
Synopsis:

Alexander is the Alpha wolf of the Neuri werewolf tribe, set to destroy anything associated with the dreaded strigoi. Lea is a magnificent Fae -- or so she believed but she soon discovers she may not be after all. With Alexander, Lea’s and basically the worlds fate is in the hands of the mated pair. They must act fast and not just on the revenge they so desperately need. Can their love save us all? As Lea and Alexander’s souls hang in the balance they come to realize we are all a little Damned


My Review:



I downloaded this book when it was free on amazon.

Let me say that this book was a good read, but the reason I gave it 4 stars is because there could be some improvement. The way that the two main characters met Lea and Alex I thought there was going to be more spark, more romantic gestures with them two. I felt the relationship they had was purely based on looks and that they "had" to be together because of destiny. 
I also found Lea too okay with fighting with the pac…

The Shadow and the Rose by Amanda DeWees

Image
Synopsis:
Sixteen-year-old Joy, a plain but feisty junior at Ash Grove High, is plunged into a dangerous love triangle when a classmate’s dare brings the chameleonic teen model Tanner into her life. Falling in love with Tanner can only lead to heartache—and danger—because he is trapped in a complex relationship with the seductive, powerful Melisande, a seemingly ageless supermodel. Melisande’s youth and beauty may be drawn from a sinister source... and she does not look kindly on rivals for her protégé’s affections.
At the same time that Joy is fighting to free Tanner from Melisande’s grasp—and from his own feelings of worthlessness—she struggles to cope with her father’s cancer and the discovery that her seemingly peaceful school is a conduit for supernatural energy. Without her father’s guidance, Joy must find within herself the strength to confront both the supernatural threat and her own unexpected pregnancy—and to save Tanner’s life

My Review:


I received this book from the author to give an honest review.

I do have to say this was a very good book, but to me it is not suitable for YA there is a lot of explicit content in here. That being said I felt so bad for the main character Giselle she was forced into a life she did not want to live. Her so called best friend Alex who at first I thought was the good guy turned into the bad guy, and I found myself wanting to slap him. With the vampires in this book they are not good they are evil, they have a…

I don’t have one author that is a favorite. I have several that I love to read. 4. Where did you get your inspiration to write your book? I’d been reading a lot of werewolf/shifter stories and one night the idea came to me. It all revolved around the wolf pretending to be a stray dog and not revealing himself to h…

Reviving Bloom by Michelle Turner

Image
Synopsis:
Bloom was abandoned by her mother at birth, but thanks to her dad she never once felt unloved. When he is killed in a car wreck, leaving her without any close family, she spends a year mourning him. She feels as if her heart has been cut out of her chest and nothing is left but an empty hole that she doesn’t think will ever heal. Then one night after work she finds a wounded dog in the woods behind her house and takes him in, not realizing he’s more than just some stray dog but a wolf shifter, who happens to be her mate.

Pike is getting over the loss of his father by running full force away from his responsibilities. He’s getting ready to go back to face his new position as the Alpha of his pack when he catches the scent that can only belong to his mate.

When Bloom finds out she may not be the normal human she always thought herself to be, she’s forced to search out the woman who abandoned her at birth.

Excerpt: “Pike, I’m far from perfect,” I sigh, hiding my face back behind t…

Sundowners is a backwoods southern horror about the importance of family, the power of gossip and the nature of the artistic muse.
