Veiled Shadows (The Age of Alandria Book 2) by Morgan Wylie

Rating 4/5 stars
Publication Date October 1st, 2013


Shadows linger where light is obstructed, and truth is veiled. 

Evil is an untreated disease in the once beautiful realm of Alandria.

Kaeleigh is faced with a revelation that she must reconcile. She will decide if discovering the truth is worth the unknown consequences to both herself and her friends.

Daegan, the Ferrishyn warrior, is conflicted by more than his loyalties, and is confronted with emotions he doesn’t know how to deal with. A choice must be made. A choice… that may cost him more than he ever wanted to give.

The Droch-Shúil—enforcers and servants of the ancient darkness—continue to cast their shadow over Alandria seeking those who can be turned to their side. 

The magic of The Orchids is growing, but not everyone will survive what is to come.Veiled Shadows is the second installment in The Age of Alandria series: the story of the Sol-lumieth’s quest for freedom of self and the power to battle the evil of the Droch-Shúil.


I had been expecting this book from the moment I finished the last one. But I was a little disappointed when I finished Veiled Shadows. This book seemed more like theory than anything else. Things got stale. OK we found out more about who and what is and what is really happening in Alandria but I wanted some action, something a little more kick-ass than that. The characters are preparing for a battle against evil. I am hoping to see that battle soon. 

I keep disliking Finn more and more with every passing page. I think that he is hiding something. Daegan on the other hand seems to keep getting better and better. As for Kaeleigh I will only say that if she starts being torn between 2 males she is going to make me hate her and I really don't want to. I liked her in silent orchids.

The sort of triangle is getting on my nerves. If it exists only because most of the YA books have a triangle than I would be really disappointed... I want it to have a reason.

I am hoping the next book to be the last because Alandria needs to find peace and the bad ones must face justice. Hopefully the next book will give me what I want.


Excerpt from Chapter Nine

In the fortress, there was a library set at the end of one of the wings. It wasn’t large, but it was the most comfortably decorated room. It was named the library only for the limited amount of leather-bound books that were barely held together along with a pile of scrolls containing the histories of the territory of Feraánmar. Warmth was coming from a large smooth stone fireplace set against one of the walls. Sitting in the high winged-back chairs in front of the fire, Wren sipped from a large silver goblet, staring in silence. In the other, Rheina sat sideways with her legs dangling off the arm. In her hands she held a tablet on which she appeared to sketch something. Only it didn’t look like much other than angry dark lines surrounded by various shading. She would pause, look bored, then go back to her tablet. Halister leaned casually, feet crossed at his ankles, against the wall next to the window, looking out at the gardens. He was thoughtful, yet something in his demeanor seemed tense in anticipation.

The door flung open. Wren and Hal turned to see who had entered while Rheina appeared to care very little. Maleina strolled in, taking in her surroundings.

“Come join us, dear.” Wren smiled warmly offering his chair to Maleina, who walked past him.
Without pleasantries she announced, “I am concerned about our Daegan. I had sent him out in search of a human and he has not yet returned home. I fear he may have encountered some trouble along the way.”
She walked over closer to Hal and as she approached, he saw something cunning in her eyes. “Yes, it has been quit some time, Mother.”
“I am sending out a search party to find him and escort him along with the human, assuming he found it, home. Halister, I would like you to head up the mission in finding him. You know him best and the routes he would take. The riders will be ready and waiting for you at first light.”
“Yes, Mother.” Halister bowed his head then stood a little taller, filled with purpose and hope for the possibility for adventure.


Rheina leaned against a wall in a dark space near the back of the stables, a place she had grown quite familiar with in recent days. Taking in a deep breath, she felt oddly peaceful amongst the animals in the stable, and the smells didn’t bother her at all. She knew it was time and she knew who she needed to talk to.
“Rheina,” a voice whispered not too far from where she was. “Where are you?”
“I’m here, Hal.”

She moved slowly out of the shadows. Rheina knew what he would see; her brother was more observant than he let on. She hadn’t been sleeping lately and there were dark circles under eyes. The dreams, or the visions, she had been having just wouldn’t leave her alone. It was time to tell him.

A beam of moonlight hit her from a crack in the wall and illuminated her. Hal searched her face slowly, taking in what he saw, but didn’t react. She loved that about him.
“Going for an evening ride, sis? You know I don’t like to ride in the dark,” he asked, knowing she didn’t really want him to go for a ride. “You know, I meant to ask you about the guy you were talking to at your party the other night.” Hal waggled his eyebrows at her playfully. “Who was he, Rheina? I haven’t seen him in Feraánmar before.”

Casually she replied, “He was no one.” At Hal’s raised eyebrow, she relented. “Fine. He is from somewhere else—that is all I will say on that matter so don’t push me. His name is Valus and he is necessary.”
She stared at him directly, daring him to say anything further, but all he did was nod. Rheina’s eyes softened, but her direct gaze did not. “There are things you need to know. I’m having dreams—nightmares really—of the battles of the past and thoughts and visions of things I know are yet to come.” Rheina paused, searching her brother’s face and eyes for disbelief or judgment. When none was found, she took a deep breath and continued, “I don’t understand it all. Most of it doesn’t make sense to me until it plays out right before me just as I saw it. Anyway, I need to give you a warning: there is evil here and I see more hidden in the shadows of mountains… but it is coming.”

Blog tour: Out of Line by Jen McLaughlin

Rating 4/5 stars
Publication Date September  10th 2013

Desperate to break free…

I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn.

Trying to play by the rules...

I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…

The truth will cost me everything.


I changed my original 4.5 rating to 4 because while I was writing the review I came up with two problems instead of the 1 I originally had and I couldn't rate it with 4.25 or something similar. 

Half star was lost in the end when I found out that there is a book #2, coming on 2014. The end isn't cliffy but some things have yet to happen and I was left with a feeling of unfulfillment. The good thing is that I can see why a second book will be out. Finn and Carrie have some serious problems waiting for them. 

I was really happy when Finn's secret was revealed (to the reader, not Carrie) so quickly in the book. I am sure if the average reader would have liked it (or him) if s/he found out the same time as Carrie did.

Why the other half star was cut off? Because of Carrie. In the begging she seemed so smart and was close to the truth but when the revelation came she was acting like the thought hadn't crossed her mind at all. 

Out of line was an enjoyable read and a great NA debut for Alberts. 


“Get lost,” a hard voice that I recognized said from the shadows. “You’ll go back to your stupid little party and find another drunk girl to hit on.”
“Says who?” Beer Breath asked, a cocky grin on his face.
“Says me,” Finn said, stepping out of the shadows. He flexed his fists and stepped closer to me. “Go ahead. Give me a reason to punch your fucking face in, and I’ll gladly oblige.”
Beer Breath paled and shuffled backward. “Dude. She kissed me.” “No, I didn’t.” “We wouldn’t expect you to know the difference, now would we?”
Finn asked, his voice mocking. He was practically begging for a fight. And all because of what? Because some dude kissed me? Why did he even care? “You have five seconds to be gone.”
Beer Breath turned red. “You know what? Run off with your little boyfriend and don’t ever come back to this frat again.”
Beer Breath stormed off, leaving Finn and me alone on the porch. I pivoted and gave him what I hoped was an annoyed look. “You do realize I can handle a grabby-hands boy by myself, right? I dealt with you, after all.”
He stepped closer, towering over me. “Ginger, you have no idea how to deal with me.”
I stiffened. “I know that if I kissed you now, you wouldn’t push me away.”
“Of course I wouldn’t. Look at you.” His gaze dipped over my body, and when he met my eyes again his own were blazing and hot. “Anyman would kiss you back.”
“You’d push me away after.”

He lifted a shoulder but said nothing. He was so darn condescending and cocky. “Why are you at another
frat party that I just happen to be at? Who are you? Why are you following me?”
Finn leaned against a palm tree and looked far too casual, but he reminded me of one of those lions on the Discovery Channel. He looked perfectly calm on the surface, but in a second he could be all deadly and lethal. “I’m here because I was taking a walk down the beach, and I saw you and that loser kissing. Then I saw you push him away. I wanted to make sure you were okay, but now I’m wishing I had bashed his head into the fucking wall before I let him go.”
My heart rose to my throat. “Why?”
“Because you should be kissing me,” he practically whispered. “Not some college boy who doesn’t know what he’s doing.”

He closed the distance between us. And as soon as his hands were on my hips, his mouth was on mine. The familiar sensations he’d awoken in me came to life, and I clung to him. His tongue entwined with mine, and he grabbed my waist, yanking me against him.
I lifted up on tiptoe, trying to get closer, and moaned softly. He needed to do that again. And more. This is how a kiss was supposed to feel. This is what it was supposed to do to me. I might be inexperienced, but even I knew what a good kiss felt like.
And. This. Was. It.

Release Date: Wicked Thing by Angeline Kace


Carmyn Rafferty witnessed the aftermath of her mother's affair. She learned at a young age not to trust anyone. Especially not your spouse. So she's planned. She's planned every detail of her life: who her husband will be, what their careers will be, what their lives will be like. All to avoid the pain of infidelity.

Dallas Brown lives a life all his own. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn't live up to anyone's expectations but his own.

When Carmyn's fiancé cheats on her, it sends her into a whirlwind of one-night stands with the most infamous player on campus. She can't seem to stay away from this tough guy and his dangerous motorcycle. Everything about him is the complete opposite of who she'd planned to fall in love with: tattoos, dark stubble along his jawline, and hair that brushes his shoulders.

As Dallas and Carmyn begin to fall deeper and deeper into each other, they learn that love can truly be a wicked, wicked thing.

Safe With Me (With Me in Seattle #5) by Kristen Proby


Keeping others safe is what Caleb Montgomery does. He’s never had a problem taking on an assignment, whether it was during his dangerous SEAL days or his most recent job of training war mercenaries. But being assigned to keep Brynna Vincent and her adorable daughters, Maddie and Josie, safe from an unknown threat has thrown Caleb off his axis. Hot for the tall brunette since she came back to town more than a year ago, being close to her day in and day out is cracking Caleb’s resolve to keep his hands off her gorgeous body and his head in the mission.

Brynna is sick and tired of being afraid. All she wants is a normal, quiet life for her and her precious girls. Just as she’s settling into her new home in Seattle and feeling safe again, Caleb shows up on her doorstep insisting the danger is as high as ever. But whether she needs to be sheltered from the threat in her past, or from the intense emotions she feels for the sexy, protective man sleeping in her home, remains to be seen. What will happen if Brynna and her girls fall in love with a man so broken he may not be able to protect them from the danger that threatens, much less himself?

SAFE WITH ME is the fifth book in the With Me In Seattle series, and continues to follow this tight-knit, loving family through life’s trials and tribulations with humor, passion and everlasting love


“Easy,” Caleb murmurs behind me.
“I’m fine.” Maybe if I keep saying it I’ll start to believe it myself.
He moves up behind me and nudges my legs apart. “Widen your stance for balance.”
I fire again, and my blood thickens as adrenaline pumps hard and fast through me.
It doesn’t take a Navy SEAL to figure out how to line up the sights, and I squeeze the trigger, again and again, my body taught with aggression that I didn’t even know I’d been holding.
Shooting is great therapy.
When the magazine is empty, Caleb wordlessly shows me how to switch it out, and I continue to throw the bullets down the range, clip after clip, until all four are spent.
I set the heavy gun on the shelf, pull my goggles and earmuffs off and step back. I have to lock my knees because my legs feel like Jell-O and I’m afraid I’ll fall. My arms are humming, I’m panting, and I swear to God, I could run a marathon.
Suddenly, Caleb steps up behind me and presses the button to bring the target back to us.
“Take a deep breath,” he whispers against my ear and I instinctively respond, pulling in a long, deep breath. He presses his chest against my back, his thighs against the back of my own, and pulls in a long breath of his own. “You smell so fucking good.”
His cock stirs against my backside, through his jeans. He pulls his hands up my arms and down my sides to my hips, where he rests them as he runs his nose up the side of my neck.
With the noise and feel of the gun still in my head, my heart still pounding like crazy, I want him.
“You have no idea how fucking good you feel pressed up against me like this,” he whispers, his voice rough and strained.
“I think I have an idea,” I respond, surprised to hear the raw need in my own voice. Closing my eyes, I lean my head back on his shoulder and relish in the feel of his hands kneading my hips and his face pressed into my neck. My nipples are puckered and straining against my bra, and goosebumps have broken out up and down the length of my body.
I want him unlike anything or anyone I’ve ever wanted before.
“Caleb.” His name is a whisper, a prayer.
“Smell so damn good.”
“Touch me,” I demand softly. His hands still. He kisses my neck softly, takes a long, deep breath, and then backs away.
I turn around in surprise and in full-blown anger.
“What kind of game are you playing?” I demand.
“I’m not playing a game.” He crosses his arms over his chest.
“Caleb.” I just stare at him for a long moment. Thirty seconds ago his hands were on me and he was whispering the sweetest things in my ear.
Now he’s turned back into the drill sergeant.
And men say women are confusing.
Finally, he turns and pulls the target down.
“I’ll be damned,” he whispers.
“Let me see.”
There are a few stray bullet holes around the white part of the target, but in the center of the chest and the top of the head are two good-sized holes where my bullets pierced the paper.
“You’re a natural.” I shrug like it’s no big thing, but inside I’m doing the mega happy-dance. “Not so much a pussy, I guess.”Caleb laughs, long and loud and scoops me up into a long hug.
“Definitely not a pussy,” he agrees as he pulls away from me.
“Caleb?” My heart is beating hard, and I’m still pissed at him. He’s smiling down at my target, but when his eyes meet mine, he sobers.
“Don’t fucking touch me like that again unless you plan to finish what you start.”
His eyes go hard and his jaw tightens. Before I can turn and walk away, he grabs my wrist and pulls me against him, pinning my arms between our bodies.
“Let’s get this straight, Brynna. I want you so fucking bad my teeth ache. I’ve wanted you for months. But you’re part of my family, and I’m supposed to be protecting you. Dropping my guard and fucking you into the mattress is not the way to keep any of you whole.”
I gasp as his words sink in and I want to beg him to take me home do exactly that; fuck me into the mattress, but before I can speak, he lowers his forehead to mine and clenches his eyes closed as if in pain.
“I’m not going to fuck up our friendship, or make things weird for you with my family, just because I can’t keep my damn hands off you. You mean too much for that.”
I lean into him, wanting to comfort him, but he sighs, lifts his head and plants his lips on my forehead for a long few seconds and then backs away, turns his back on me, and loads the weapon and clips back into his locking gun box.
“I apologize. I won’t touch you again.” Before I can argue, ask him to talk with me about this, he stalks off ahead of me. “Let’s go.”

Tell Me ({More than} One Night with Sole Regret #6) by Olivia Cunning

Rating 5/5 stats
Publication Date : September 17th, 2013


He had planned a perfect weekend for her…

Gabriel “Force” Banner has been unable to get a certain sexy accountant out of his head. Sole Regret’s inventive drummer has created big plans to keep sweet Melanie entertained all weekend long. Unfortunately, Melanie arrives for their rendezvous with a bit of baggage that just might ruin their fun.

She didn’t mean to make things difficult…

Melanie wouldn’t blame Gabe if he left her at the airport with her bit of baggage, but he’s determined to make their limited time together work. When they leave behind the bustle of New Orleans and the rock ‘n’ roll scene to visit his serene oasis outside of Austin, Texas, their romantic weekend seems to be back on track. But life has a way of butting in at the worst possible times.

Can they learn how to support each other in the face of adversity or will reality destroy their budding relationship before it even takes flight?

This novella is 60,000 words long and includes an extra night, because one night with Force just isn’t enough.


Pre reading review:

when are you going to be published, Tell me? Cunning needs to kill that @^*%%$^ (if she is not on the book I will be the happiest girl ever). I need you... 

After I read the book:

Mrs Cunning do you have any idea how happy you made me? A particular lady wasn't present almost at all and didn't cause a mess. The series escalated to a new level. Now things are more real and more intimate. Now that our couples have more than one night can get the chance to get to know each other and start building their relationship. 

The hot scenes were still there, of course. And Gabe's inventions *sigh* But obstacles were also there. Nikki (Melanie's friend) forced herself on them, there was a meet the parents meeting and there was doubt about the other person's feelings.

It's longer than the previous books! Yeah for us! It gave me the feeling that I had read a stand alone. If it wasn't for THE question I would be 100% happy. Gabe and Melanie were isolated from the rest of the band most of the time but there was a peak with them

Everything I've Never Had by Lynetta Halat

Rating: 5/5 stars
Release Date: 9/2/2013


Celeste Hebert has always appeared to have it all, but there are many things she's never had, been forbidden from having.
One night. One song. One kiss. The perfect trifecta to unleash the floodgates of a forbidden attraction between the widow and her husband’s bad boy cousin, Adrian.
Celeste endeavors to rebury the feelings that surface after this one night since her powerful family despises him. Kindred spirits, best of friends they attempt to douse their attraction; however, Adrian always seems to know exactly how to push her buttons and may prove too much to resist.
Having defied his family by making his way on his own terms, Adrian struggles to regain their acceptance. When he meets his cousin’s wife and wants her for his own, he feels he’s finally lived down to the title—black sheep. But, when his cousin dies unexpectedly, Adrian fights his attraction and swears to honor them both by helping her raise her boys.
Finding himself enveloped in a cocoon of love and acceptance, Adrian knows it’s more than just physical attraction. However, unforeseen events threaten to destroy those he now holds dear and his newfound peace.

Will the ties that bind them be their undoing?

“Sometimes we forget to appreciate the things that truly matter because our vision is so clouded by all of the mundanes. The here and now become our obsession , and we forget the concept of our finite state because with all the little things vying for our attention it feels like we'll go on forever.”

I was so happy when I reached the book the end of the book and no one had died! After every rose I was reluctant to read this because I didn't want to start crying again. I am not saying though that this book won't have you crying. This time though it will be happy tears. I did not cried but I was close.

A tiny part in the end made my stomach turn but when Celeste called his BS and fought for him. She got all the points in the world for that. PTSD is something that should be taken lightly. The book was love in all of it's forms, family and the life of a military man with everything that comes with it.

I sat and read the whole book (330 pages) at once. I couldn't stop reading it. No bathroom breaks or even to pick up the phone. Mrs. Halat has written a second book that will rock your world. Honestly I can't wait to see what's next!


I consider exactly how truthful I should be with him. He was so truthful with me. I owe him that much, don't I? "Adrian, I don't need time apart. You're my friend and you're amazing with the boys. They love you. I would never deny them your presence. I just...I just need us to get back to normal as quickly as possible. I...I am attracted to you. I have been for a while. But that's all it is—a physical attraction." On these words, I see his eyes narrow ever so slightly. I turn my head quickly and vow, "I promise to control myself, though." I allow my eyes to find his again. "I don't want to lose you either."
He studies me for a minute. Just as I find myself about to squirm under his intense gaze, he releases me. "OK, Celeste, that settles that. Back to normal. We'll both behave. This physical thing between us will pass. No harm, no foul. Right?"
"Right," I say on a smile.
Standing up, he turns to go back to his mowing; but then he spins around and comes back to tower over me. My head flies up, my gaze searching. I open my mouth to ask him what's wrong, but he beats me once again.
"Celeste, just so you know," he says as he tilts my chin back further and runs his calloused fingertips up my cheek to tuck a strand of errant hair behind my ear. His hand curls itself along my jaw. "That kiss...that kiss was exceptional, and I'll never forget it. As I stand here and as long as I live, it was the best I've ever had, the best I could ever have."
Since my heart has lodged itself firmly in my throat, he's gone before I can speak or even form a coherent thought for that matter. Slowly, I shake my head at his retreating back. We'll never get back to normal if he keeps touching me and talking to me like that.

Cover reveal: Drift (Lengths #5) by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt

Release date not set


There’s no way Lydia--oldest and most responsible of the tight-knit Rodriguez clan--is going to let her nosy family find out about the uncharacteristic work screw-up that landed her a paid suspension. To keep busy and avoid panic, she enrolls in a life enrichment class. The first guest speaker is a handsome artist with a wicked smile and eyes that melt right through her.

Even the “ice princess” can’t help but feel an immediate spark that lights her blood on fire.  

Isaac Ortiz is unquestionably the sexiest man Lydia has ever met. The talented son of a famous Spanish artist, he’s constantly moving from one new glamorous city to another, working if and when the muse visits him.

He also has a stare that makes Lydia’s heart race and hands that look more than capable of making her scream with pleasure. She shouldn’t be attracted to this free-spirit who makes all his own rules--but she is.

There’s just one hiccup....Isaac is nineteen.

Lydia has lived her entire life firmly inside the box, and being with a younger man is definitely outside the safe confines she enjoys.

So why can’t she stay away from him? And why is she seriously considering his proposition to take off to a place she’s never been...just because?

When Lydia is invited back to work with a cleared name, she should be overjoyed.

But the reality is, Lydia doesn’t know what anchors her life anymore...or if she wants to be anchored at all. Should she travel the world with Isaac? Or continue down the road that she’s worked long and hard to pave for herself? Choosing one means losing the other, and Lydia isn’t sure if she’s ready to drift with the current that’s pulling her by the heart.

Author Bios:

Steph Campbell grew up in Southern California, but now calls Southwest Louisiana home. She has one husband, four children and a serious nail polish obsession.

Steph's works include Delicate, Grounding Quinn and Beautiful Things Never Last; My Heart for Yours and My Fate for Yours (with Jolene Perry); A Toast to the Good Times (with Liz Reinhardt) and the bestselling new adult LENGTHS series with Liz Reinhardt: Lengths, Depths, Limits, Ties & Riptides.


Liz Reinhardt was born and raised in the idyllic beauty of northwest NJ.

Right alongside these new loves is her old, steadfast affection and longing for bagels and the fast-talking foul mouths of her youth.

She loves Raisinettes, even if they aren't really candy, the Oxford comma, movies that are hilarious or feature zombies, any and all books, but especially romance (the smarter and hotter, the better), the sound of her daughter's incessantly wise and entertaining chatter, and watching her husband work on cars in the driveway.

She is the author of the Brenna Blixen series (Double Clutch, Junk Miles, Slow Twitch), the Youngblood series (Fall Guy, Perfectly Unmatched), and co-writes with the awesome Steph Campbell in the Lengths series (Lengths, Depths, Limits, Ties, Riptides).
