Review: Keep Me Safe (Slow Burn Series # 1) by Maya Banks

A sizzling story of a woman who risks her life and her heart to find a wealthy man’s missing sister—the first novel in a sexy new romantic suspense series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks
When Caleb Devereaux's younger sister is kidnapped, this scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot.
While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can.
Deeply remorseful for the pain he’s caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie's vanished forever, she reappears. She’s in trouble and she needs his help. Now, Caleb will do risk everything to protect her—including his heart. . . .

WOW! Love this book!!! One of the other Maya Banks book I read is Wanted by Her Lost Love, and I say that book is different from this one. It has a touch of paranormal. Keep Me Safe is the first book in the series and is Caleb's story. The characters, Caleb and Ramie are amazing. Their chemistry is easily felt and I love how I was pulled in on their story. Caleb is your typical alpha male - and that's what I love about him.. **swoon** 
Ramie on the other hand, despite having a special ability, it made her vulnerable to evil who is obsessed with her. As the story goes, Ramie and Caleb's adventure just keeps getting better and better. I love the drama, suspense and romance in this book! Definitely had me even from the start! Loved it! I will be starting book 2 soon.. **eeeekkk!!!**

ARC Review: Mind Waves by Amanda Uhl

Mind Waves

If he can control her mind…
Government operative David Jenkins is skilled at controlling his emotions. Feelings are lethal when your job is to infiltrate minds, erase and implant thoughts, and guard the nation’s intellectual capital. But even he can’t fight his strange attraction to Grace Woznisky. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect her from a madman intent on possessing both their minds. Neither suspect their dangerous enemy has a larger motive, and David may be Grace’s only chance for survival.

Can he control her heart?
All freelance artist Grace wants is steady-paying work and to see her flighty sister to the altar. But after David offers her a job, she finds herself in the middle of a mental tug of war—one that has her reeling from nightmares and fighting for her life. She must decide: Are her growing feelings for her new boss authentic, or is she a victim of his mind-altering abilities?

A mysterious stranger comes into her life. Although she has somehow found the strength to “live,” all is not as it seems when Kelsey discovers Damien’s deepest secrets. While her mind screams to run, her heart begs her to stay.


To make matters worse, a serial killer is loose, and he’s going after everybody Kelsey has loved. Seeking revenge, Kelsey is determined to hunt him down. But what happens when the hunter becomes the hunted?

Amazing book! Loved it! From the start up to the last, I was hooked on this book! On the first few chapters...I was like, ok read but as the story goes, I was WOWed! The story and the characters are amazing. I love how Ms. Jalpa made this book interesting, full of surprises and intense. The characters, Damien and Kelsey are great. At first, I was not a fan of Kelsey. Grr. Actually, I hated her, but as the story goes, I started to like her - love her even. She's an unusual character for me, a bit rebellious, sassy and strong. Damien, the mysterious man who only showed up at night. For me, he's charming and full of mystery. The story, it's amazing. I love how the author wrote it and brought the characters to life. Over all, this book rocks! Loved it! One of the favorite books I've read this year!

Review: Race the Darkness (Fatal Dreams #1) by Abbie Roads

Publication Date: October 4, 2016

Race the Darkness (Fatal Dreams, #1)

First in a gripping paranormal romantic suspense duo by a Golden Heart finalist debut author whose clinical work gives her chilling insights...

Cursed with a terrible gift...

Criminal investigator Xander Stone doesn't have to question you—he can hear your thoughts. Scarred by lightning, burdened with a power that gives him no peace, Xander struggles to maintain his sanity against the voice that haunts him day and night—the voice of a woman begging him to save her.

A gift that threatens to engulf them...

Isleen Walker has long since given up hope of escape from the nightmare of captivity and torture that is draining her life, her mind, and her soul. Except...there is the man in her feverish dreams, the strangely beautiful man who beckons her to freedom and wholeness.

Wow! Interesting story with full of surprises! Race the Darkness will leave you wanting more! The story and the characters of this book are amazing!!!! From the start up to the last, I was hooked on the story. The characters, Xander and Isleen are easy to relate with and love. Xander, a man who has a physical defect - scarring - because of an incident that happened to him. But adding to his scarring, he now possessed a power to hear the thoughts of people around him. Despite having this ability, he struggles to find peace and sanity - because he keeps on hearing a woman calling for him, for his help. Isleen, a woman who is held captive by people who are hell bent on killing her. What I love about this book is that I was intrigued not only on the characters but also on the story of this book - what will happen next. This book is full of suspense and unexpected events that will make you addicted to this book. Loved it! I can't wait for what's next on this series. Ms. Abbie nailed it!

Review: Broken Slave (Bound in Bloodlust Book 2) by Savannah Hill

Broken Slave (Bound in Bloodlust Book 2)

A fire raging in the blood...

**This story can be read as a standalone**

A hard-working, small-town waitress, Macy has never desired a man as intensely as the one who just walked into her bar. But this captivating stranger is not just any man. He's not, in fact, even human.

A member of the bloodling race, his name is Nathan—but once he was called “Britton.” From an early age he was the abused slave-pet of a cruel child of privilege, forced to do his mistress’ evil bidding against those of his own kind. For years violence, depravity, and submission were all he knew, thanks to the human monster who corrupted his soul. But ultimately he broke free.

For the first time in a life filled with shadows, Nathan understands the pure power of this emotion called love. And though Macy fears the volatile world he inhabits, she is helpless to resist him. But now the sins of Nathan’s past are returning with a vengeance…and his enemies are back for blood.

An interesting read. I haven't read the first book of the series, so I am not familiar with the first pair's story. This book even though a part of a series is can be read as a standalone. Anyway, the story and characters are good. It's well written and I love how I was easily pulled in into the characters' story. The characters, they are easy to like and are also good. There may be times that I wish that there would be more of the story.... Anyway, the hotness level of Broken Slave is high. :) So I would like to let readers know that this book is intended to mature readers (18+). Overall, the book is good, interesting and intriguing.
