Choices of Fate by Simone Chavous

I was given this book in exchange for a review (LoP)

I loved the originality of this story! It was like a breath of fresh air to main stream vampire stories.

As with most series, this first book did go slow in the beginning. Though this was important to establish Alexa and Ethan's relationship and attraction to each other, it may read better condensed into a few chapters and incorporated with the flashbacks. Maybe as a prologue?

The characters were well written and realistic. They had just enough depth and description that you could imagine their faces and know their personalities. Yet, it didn't bog down the story.

This was the mother of all cliffhangers!! It made the entire book worth reading, and rereading! You're literary in shock, sitting on the edge of your seat, holding your breath wondering "WTH HAPPENED?!?!?" Needless to say, I'm very much looking forward to book 2 :)

Devil's Tattoo Cover Reveal & Teasers by Nicole Taylor

The Devil’s Tattoo by Nicole R. Taylor Publication date: September 1st 2013 Genre: Contemporary Romance 18+

Synopsis: Zoe Granger picked up her first guitar the day her heart was smashed into a billion pieces. It was a way to keep her mind off her inevitable downward spiral, but music soon became her escape. She's been burned too many times to tell and is just happy to coast through life, never putting herself out there. That's until her best friend Dee suggests they start a band and suddenly she finds herself not just a part of it, but fronting the whole outfit.

They call themselves The Devil's Tattoo and when they release their debut EP, it rockets to the top of the charts and it's like an overnight fairytale. Contracts, photo shoots, royalties and interviews are heaped onto the shy Zoe and it's like she's finally found her place. Then comes the phone call that changes everything. They've been asked to co-headline a tour with one of the hottest bands of the moment, The Stabs and Zoe will never be the same again.

Will Strickland is one fourth of the hottest indie rock band to ever grace the airwaves. He's the bass player in The Stabs, hot as hell and could have his pick of any girl that flings herself at him. But he's only got eyes for Zoe and she has no idea why he'd bother. She's got one hell of a trust issue and an attitude to boot and Will seems to be the one who wants to tame her, but is he game enough?

The Devil's Tattoo and The Stabs go on the road and it's either going to be a highway to hell or a stairway to heaven. Only time will tell who will come out on top and Zoe's determined to do it without getting her heart broken… again. Goodreads:

Jaded Touch by Nola Sarina

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP).
I was completely taken by surprise by Jaded Touch.  In the first few chapters, I wasn't sure if I could finish it; it was hard to follow and Rachel's character, I thought, made the story child-like with nursery rhymes (seriously?).  I actually started reading another book and was about to add JT to my "couldn't finish" shelf.

Thank goodness I didn't! After the train wreck, the story became addicting,  beautifully dark (maybe because Rachel wasn't around??), and romantic. And once it started, it was non-stop: wanting to know what/who caused the train wreck, what will happen with Three & Jack or Three & Sychar, and Three's tormented life.

This short story was a concentration of emotions. One moment, you're laughing at Three's internal conflict and internal dialog, in awe over Three & Jack's relationship, angered by Rachel's bullying, or in suspense wondering what's going to happen next!

I loved how everything came together in the end. Full circle. The last few pages make the story, especially the last statement. Without giving away spoilers, all I can is...WOW!

Very well done, Nola!
