Book Review 4: Vampire’s Bite by Eve Grant

Title: Vampire’s Bite
Author: Eve Grant
Release Date: September 7, 2014

She’s responsible and takes life too seriously

Susan Ethans is a model student: perfect grades, a dream scholarship, and a promising career ahead of her. But her grades alone aren’t enough to flirt with the hot guys on campus. She doesn’t want to end up being a wallflower, but there isn’t much she can do about it.

A vampire bites her

A madman bites her neck and drinks her blood. She tries to get away, but he drains her life away until she collapses.

She thinks she’s going to die, but she wakes up at an eccentric millionaire’s home. She feels healthy, renewed, and even smarter. Something is changing within her.

He has everything… except love

Nicholas Hill has power, money, and an English accent to die for, but he speaks like a man from the 19th Century. His notions of propriety and manners make him different to every other man in the world. Susan is instantly attracted to him and knows that he likes her, but something tortures his soul and doesn’t let him follow his heart.

Will a mere student change a powerful businessman’s life, or will their personalities clash until they can no longer stand each other?

Book Review 3: Neil Gaiman’s The Last Temptation 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Title: Neil Gaiman’s The Last Temptation 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

The Last Temptation CoverAuthors: Neil Gaiman, Alice Cooper, Michael Zulli and Dave McKean

Release Date: November 11, 2014

Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Coraline, American Gods) brings shock rocker Alice Cooper’s concept album to life in a surreal sideshow of the soul! Join a young boy named Steven on a surreal journey of the soul, as an enigmatic and potentially dangerous Showman seduces him into joining his carnival. Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this seminal Gaiman work, returned to print for the first time in over a decade. Fully remastered in color, this Deluxe Edition incorporates complete scripts to all three chapters, black-and-white thumbnail art of pre-colored pages, an original outline of the project by Neil Gaiman, and a collection of letters between shock rocker Alice Cooper and the author!

“I’m really happy that The Last Temptation is coming out for a new generation of readers, who have not seen Michael Zulli’s glorious drawings, or know of the Showman and his wicked ways,” says Neil Gaiman.

“I wrote this a long time ago, driven by love of Ray Bradbury’s dark carnivals and of Alice Cooper’s own pandemonium shadow show. It’s time for it to shuffle out onto a leaf-covered street and meet the people who don’t know about Stephen and Mercy and show what’s coming to town.”

THIRSTY THURSDAY (3): TEAR INDUCING GOODBYE

Thirsty

Thirsty Thursday is a weekly feature, hosted by Nikki & Keira @ Lazy Book Lovers, where we discuss all things swoon-worthy: from quotes, book covers, book boyfriends, and even that worth-the-wait book kiss.

The theme for this week is tear inducing goodbye, and this is my pick:

Book: The Graveyard Book by Neil GaimanGraveyard Book Cover

Why: Nobody “Bod” Owens was raised in a graveyard by its spooky inhabitants. Then it’s time for him to leave and rejoin the world of the living. The magic of the graveyard leaves Bod little by little as his departure nears.

Book Review 2: Rock Courtship by Nalini Singh (Rock Kiss 1.5)

Rock CourtshipTitle: Rock Courtship
Author: Nalini Singh
Release Date: September 30, 2014

What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?

A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band’s publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.

Only problem is, Thea doesn’t date clients—or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she’s not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.

What she doesn’t know is that David is a one-woman man…and he’s madly in love with her. David’s determined to prove he’s worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea’s about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.

Book Review 1: Wicked Thing by Angeline Kace

Title: Wicked ThingWicked Thing Cover
Author: Angeline Kace
Release Date: September 22, 2013

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 according to his own terms. He doesn’t do relationships, he doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn’t live up to anyone’s expectations.

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.

This is from Jennifer L. Armentrout‘s first book from her Lux series entitled “Obsidian.” Katy’s first impression of Daemon is that he’s a jerk. Unfortunately, she can’t avoid him because he lives next door, and she’s beginning to be friends with Daemon’s sister Dee. Katy is showing Dee how to do gardening when Daemon comes over and acts his usual obnoxious self. Katy thinks he’s hot but she won’t take any attitude from him.

“What – are you deciding to talk to me now?” Smiling tightly, I grabbed a handful of mulch and dumped it. Rinse and repeat. “Yeah, it’s kind of a hobby. What’s yours? Kicking puppies?”
