The Devil's Plaything (Ceasefire #2)

The Devil’s Plaything by Claire Marta
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Release Date-19/7/18

The Only creature who has ever been able to bring the devil to his knees, my beautiful deadly Queen

This was such a delicious concluding instalment to a series that had previously captured my attention so completely with it’s ingenious and fresh perspective on that old tug of war between good and evil and everything that lies in the grey of the in-between.
And after where we previously left off with this I was practically salivating to jump headlong back into the action alongside Mavi, Lucifer and all the rest of the gang.
Having no idea how this was going to continue after that massive cliffhanger of a finale in book one I was ever so curious to see how “The Devil’s Plaything” was going to recover from the burnt ashes it had collapsed into previously.
This is one book ive been wanting to hurry up and hit my kindle like so much and I have to tell you it was so worth the wait folks.
So after a quick re-read of its predecessor, I was raring to go and almost instantly catapulted into a world of confusion where nothing is as it seems and the king of manipulations and lies that is Lucifer seems up to his old tricks; scheming and playing his cards totally to his own advantage.
I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt really I did, but it was just so hard when time after time he seemed to be playing a game that only he was aware of all the rules.
No regard for Mavi or seemingly anyone else, stomping on her obvious affections without a care.
And the more this progressed the deeper the hole he seemed to did himself into with Mavi I really didn’t see how he was going to explain his way out of this one.
And while Lucifer spun his manipulations around the whole saga the contrast in his portrayed intent and actual attention to Mavi was just so confusing, I didn’t know what to think as he was Constantly blowing hot and cold throughout.
And talking of heat the sexual antics between these two were seriously smokin in nature with a raw unapologetic carnality that I bloody adored.
In fact, there was just so much here that I was loving as this was just such a fantastic engaging read.
I think one of my favourite aspect of this series was the unrepentant nature of its characters.
I adore it when we are given an unashamed anti-hero that stays totally true to there inner nature.
A monster that is still kinda a monster to everyone but the one they adore and that’s what we are treated to here; Lucifer is who he is and makes no excuses for his inert essence.
And Mavi herself is more than a match for him her ultimate wickedness complimenting Lucifers corrupt core just so cruelly and with such great finesse.
So this is set primarily in Hell away from Ceasefire which I actually prefered.
We also get to experience Lucifer this time in his true form which was also a mega plus for me.
There are definitely some surprises here that leapt out of left field and totally knocked my socks off.
And there were times occasions that I really hated Lucifer with a bloody passion and wanted to knock him the hell out.
This is one of those reads that once started can’t be put down so great is its pull.
I was transfixed to the bitter end.

They call him a monster. Weaver of lies. The great deceiver. Yet the devil has wept for me. Fought For me. Taken me in his dark Embrace

I cant recommend this book series enough my only criticism here is it had to end.
So looking forward to experiencing much more of this fantastic world and seeing what else this talented author has planned for us next.

Divine GraceDivine Grace by Virginia Cantrell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Release Date-12/5/18

Unfortunately, I didn’t like “Divine Grace” as much as the first book in this series.
Don’t get me wrong this wasn’t awful and I still found this an enjoyable endeavour.
I just think my main issue here was that this ran parallel with the previous book; so until the halfway mark I felt a bit; been there, done that and If I’m honest found it a bit boring rehashing the same old storyline we had already experienced previously.
So, after the halfway mark things did pick up and I enjoyed this much more.
And in “Divine Grace”, we get to catch up with all the same characters we were introduced to previously.
The only main difference this time around is that we get some major insight into the former lightbearer Lahash and his reasons and ultimate agenda for the Nephilim.
I liked both Trevin and Inaya but did find Trevin’s portrayal to be of a slightly one-dimensional nature.
And I really felt that I didn’t get to know him quite as much as I would have liked; he seemed to me to be a bit of a closed book overall.
Because of this, I found his character difficult to feel a strong connection with, which was a shame as I would have definitely liked to get to learn what makes him ultimately tick as I did initially find him rather intriguing.
Inaya was much more transparent and I did find myself warming to her more easily, but I still wasn’t ultimately convinced of the chemistry between these two.
It was just so sudden in nature and I think more of a slow build would have been more appropriate here.
despite my above bug-bears, this was still overall an interesting read and a unique take on the Nephilim so it gets points for that fact alone.
So on careful consideration, I decided to give this three Stars as I did enjoy and finish this but at times it struggled to keep my attention.

I absolutely loved “The Devil You Know” by Claire Marta.

 photo 2G4_zpsj536phdq.gif

From the minute I started reading this I was hooked.
I’m a sucker for a dark depraved read and this one for me definitely hit the spot.
I do so adore me a twisted Heroine that struggles but eventually embraces her dark side and with Mavi StClaire we get this in spades.

giphy (2)

She is one bad flower as the mysterious Max liked to call her.
And this is one girl who makes no apologies for who she is and keeps her cards close to her chest, trying to keep everyone at arm’s length is in her very nature.
And this includes the secretive but decadent Max.
As for the mysterious Max, loved him so much also, he himself comes enveloped in secrets and lies a matching bookend to match Mavi’s depravity and darkness a born manipulator who oozes sexual charisma and luckily for Mavi he likes his girls a touch on the psycho side.

 photo images_zpsfpumrath.jpg

I loved all many side characters portrayed here each and every one was a well rounded and diverse individual and there was also never a dull moment in regards to the action portrayed here this book was packed.
A playground for heaven and hell, filled with battles and conflict galore.
I’m being a bit Vague as I don’t want to spoil this, you just need to dive right in and immerse yourself in this violent and bloody world.
so this felt fresh.
In a sea of paranormal offerings, it came across as original and different making it really stand out in its genre.
It also helped that “The Devil You Know” was all sorts of hot and sexy.
With Plenty of appeal here to tempt a sinner or a saint.
It had so many twists and turns that I never saw coming and it was fully ramped right up to its shocking finale.
Totally gobsmacked at the ending and can’t wait for the next chapter of this addictive story.

“Divine Merit” was a new unique take on the Nephilim world.
A paranormal offering which I enjoyed much more than I originally thought I would.
This tale revolves around The Princess, Amira and the head of her royal guard and longtime crush Caeden.
It’s full of the charm of a budding first relationship.
Whilst also the intrigues and power play of a royal court in action.
What started out as an easy read for me quickly evolved into a much more tangled web than I was originally expecting.
And once this pepped up it was non stop action throughout and a storyline that certainly kept me on my toes and more.
This book was definitely a pleasant surprise it contained well rounded likeable individuals as well as your classic villains and also had plenty of scope for further storyline development and growth.
I am so looking forward to seeing where this is headed and what lies in store for all as the plot develops.
Do give this a go, its a fantastic addition to its genre and if you like your paranormal these ones for you.

/ ARC-Book Review / Fallen Reign (Se7en Sinners #4) / S.L. Jennings /



Release Date-28th March 2018
Kindle Edition

Yesterday, I had the audacity to imagine a future.

One that didn’t include hunting demons hellbent on destroying humanity or being used as a pawn for my father’s revenge. One comprised of a home and a family and all the things I’d longed for as a broken child.

Then in the blink of a silver speckled eye, my foolish hope was extinguished, and my world came crumbling down.

We stood strong. We fought. We lost.

I lost.

Legion, the demon I dared to love, was gone.

Now I’m going to tear myself in two and do the unthinkable to find him. I’m going to put my trust in his brother—his enemy—and make a deal with the Devil. And while his darkness and depravity echo mine, I know this won’t end well for either of us.

My body may survive, maybe even my soul. I can’t promise the same for my heart. This time, I will not fail. I will not hesitate. And if it comes down to it, I’ll be the weapon I was created to be. I will follow the code of the Se7en and do what I should have done when we had the chance.

Kill one to save a million. 
Kill him to save the world.

Oh, this book, this book, this book I absolutely adored each and every word, even as it chewed me up inside emotionally and spat me back out, even as I sat there getting strange looks from my partner as tears streamed down my face.

 photo download_zpslvi5n9gl.jpg

“Fallen Reign” gutted me, but in such a good way.
Not sure that even makes sense but you will understand what I’m getting at when you experience this fabulous piece of fiction for yourself.
This is hands down my favourite book of the series and it thoroughly deserves its full five stars.
I so want to ramble on about everything that clicked for me here but I cant as this would definitely spoil it for you.
Just let me say that “Fallen Reign” is going to turn everything you think you want from this story and totally turn it on his head.
So let go of your preconceptions and just go with the flow.
This is definitely a one-sitter read so clear your calendar as I guarantee you will not be able to put this down once you start.
This is a fantastic and worthy finale to what has been a great series.
Hopefully, we may get a cameo from these characters in future S.L. Jennings writings.
Or even better a certain someone may get his own HEA. that would be so epic.
Sad to say goodbye to Eden, Legion, Lucifer, the seven and all else who made this series so addictive.
I have a serious book hangover now.
I highly recommend “The seven Sinners” series give it a go if you like your PNR.

Kindle Edition-232 Pages

Dying young is tragic. Dying young and being reborn over and over for all eternity? That’s exhausting. My goal had always been to reunite with my sister witches and break the curse put on us. Love was a risk I wasn’t willing to take. It wasn’t worth knowing it’d end in heartbreak. Then a handsome beast found me and took me as his mate. Grant McTavish linked our souls without giving me a choice. Now, with a ticking clock, a shifter pack on the hunt for me and my sisters, and Grant trying to claim my heart, I’ve got to save myself in order to save the man I don’t want to love. 

I never thought I’d find my mate. I’ve watched my pack members find theirs time and time again, but for me, it wasn’t an option. I do my job, fight to keep my pack safe, that’s it. But when my beauty walked into my life, there was no stopping my instinct. Izzy is mine, and no curse is going to take her from me. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe. She may think keeping her love from me will keep me alive when her curse takes her, but I know better. We’ll have our happily ever after. I’ll make sure of it. 

Eternal Desire (Siren Coven, #1)

Eternal Desire by Kim Loraine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Release Date-27/2/18

So this is the first book I have read by this author and I found it an enjoyable experience.
Eternal Desire is a Paranormal romance involving Witches and Shifters and arch-angels.
Three witches to be precise.
All cursed to die young because of previous events.
And I’m assuming each sister witch here is going to be given their own particular tale as I noticed further story-lines being set up for at least one of them.
Eternal Fire itself involved Izzy and Grant.
Izzy is a witch and Grant a made shifter with a pack.
These two are like oil and water neither paranormal species usually co-existing also there magic is so different so to find a mate like this is unheard off.
Also to further complicate matters the girls have a price on their head and Grants pack has been tasked with the hit on them.
Also, interwoven into this picture is the love story of Isolde and Tristan the one of legend.
Both were under a previous love spell and in one of Izzy’s past lives, her heart was laid bare and broken from this leaving her unwilling to take a chance on Grant and risk her heart again.
So with her curse hanging over her, Izzy has battened down her hatches.
Unwilling to allow love to break her for the second time.
Tristan himself does pop up here to further stir the pot and muddy the waters.
but Eternal desire mainly involves Grant trying to protect Izzy from his pack.
And Izzy not surprisingly fighting him every step of the way.
So, Grant, I liked but there were times he annoyed me like when he considered giving up Izzy



Izzy I found was very indecisive and I did find this a trifle annoying at times just make up your mind girl.
Overall taking everything into consideration though I did like both main characters.
They were real with quirks and faults that made them seem more human.
I found the storyline here to be easy to follow there were a few inconsistencies in regards to plot like wolves being turned to ash and then resurrected.
But reading another review this is going to be corrected in the finished product.
I was reading an ARC here so was prepared for some minor errors.
I’m assuming this book is part of a bigger series and this is a spin-off, don’t let that put you off this can totally be read as a standalone.
I found this to be a hot read and you could definitely feel the chemistry between Izzy and Grant.
So, in conclusion, this was a fun paranormal read that kept my attention throughout.

Release Date-26th September 2017
Genre-Paranormal Romance
Kindle Edition-253 Pages

The captivating third installment of the Se7en Sinners Series by New York Times Bestselling author, S.L. Jennings.

They say you’re never truly ready for Death until it’s staring you down, its cold, bony fingers outstretched and scratching against your fragile mortality.
I thought I was ready the day my own mother tried to kill me. Perhaps I was ready the moment I was born.
But as I peer into the chilling void of Death, breath shallow and heartbeat sluggish, I know that it can’t end like this. I was made for a purpose.
And that purpose is Legion.
Now that we’re fighting the battle of our lives, a war that could eliminate mankind, I see that purpose as clear as the whorls of dark ink etched in his skin.
Realms are colliding. Alliances are forming. And my heart is being torn in two.
I know the code the Se7en live by.
Kill one to save a million.
But maybe it’s not me who was meant to die.
Maybe it’s the man I thought I could save…the man who once saved me.
The man I was created to kill.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 photo now-live_zpsq0yvgqey.jpg

Wicked Ruin (Se7en Sinners, #3) by S.L. Jennings OMG The beginning of this book, what a ride and what a surprise, the person trying to help Eden I was mega shocked at there identity, ultimately helping Eden, even if it was like in a totally batshit crazy way.
Like that was totally overkill but the sentiment was there.
And again OMG!!!! I’m agog this cannot be a good thing in the long run.

 photo http_2F2Fmashable.com2Fwp-content2Fuploads2F20132F012FJennifer-Lawrence-OMG_zpsuaxpciog.gif

So This book turns everything on its head, Karmas a bitch and now its Eden struggling to keep Her legion to her self and he is definitely not the Demon she has fallen for.

“L is dead. Samael is dead. I was remade—reborn into what I was before. The very thing I’ve hated and rebelled against for centuries. The great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. However, the great dragon was not called the Devil, as man believed. He was called Legion. “I am the Legion of Lost Souls. And I have risen once again.”

What we have here and now is a much darker Legion one struggling to control his baser instincts and his lost souls are ultimately draining him dry and poisoning his whole self.
What else here, Well Nico is back and I’m loving the friendship between him and Eden.
Adriel is now flesh and I’m really not liking her that much, actually, if I’m honest not at all.
and we also get to see more of the Watcher as well as there hiding out at her mansion, like neutral ground and all.
Lucifer here is a much more complex character, still playing his games but we see a deeper version of himself, which was definitely enlighting.
This instalment was all about the upcoming battle and almost seems like a hopeless cause with the odds stacked against them.
So “Wicked Ruin” as in previous books ends with a cliffy and it’s a biggie.
The car crash rush to the finish was horrifying and tragic to behold and I was glued to the very last line, it was so riveting I couldn’t look away.

I will leave you with this quote from Eden and this pretty much sums up the whole ending here.

This is what I was created for. To betray. To destroy. To kill. I am the weapon to make Legion fall to his knees. And I’ve just been activated.

What a finish I need that next book like NOW!!!!

Release Date-25th February 2017
Genre-Paranormal Romance
Kindle Edition-261 Pages

I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I thought I had been living it all these years on Earth—abandoned, forgotten, and left with a dangerous secret that not only made me the Se7en’s #1 target but also turned me into a deadly weapon, a threat to every human in my path.
I was wrong.

In order to survive Lucifer’s plans for me, and his unquenchable thirst for more power, I have to surrender my humanity. I have to lose a part of myself in order to find my way back to him.
Back to the demon who saved me, only to break me.
Back to Legion.

But even supreme evil has its limits, and the real foes never show their devastatingly beautiful faces.
Forget fire and brimstone. They aren’t shit compared to what’s coming.

Centuries-old bonds will be broken. Unlikely alliances will be forged. And innocent blood will be spilled. Blood that will stain my hands for the rest of my mortal days.

I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I was wrong.
Hell is coming.
Hell is just the beginning.

So End of Eden (Se7en Sinners, #2) starts where Born Sinner leaves off and I was gagging to start this after the shocking conclusion to book one.
So Eden is In hell with Lucifer and feeling betrayed her heart broken from the revelations of the previous book.
And Lucifer is quite prepared to use this to his advantage.
here in hell, he reigns supreme and Eden is struggling to contain her revulsion at the antics prevalent in the underworld.
While at the same time feeling a sick pull and attraction to this dark depraved world and its wicked master.

 photo giphy_zps2qno8b0j.gif

He is the epitome of everything I hate and want, all dressed up in a tuxedo that looks like it was stitched, piece by sumptuous piece, onto his gorgeous frame.

Lucifer wants Eden as his bride and baby mama and her only friend and confidant at this time is Nikolai Skotos who while playing his role of debauched wingman to Lucifer is also helping Eden at the risk of his own safety.
Legion is coming to rescue Eden of that there is no doubt, but she herself seems the only one confused and mistrustful of this fact that is set in concrete.
And come he does, in dramatic style swooping in to rescue his love, what a hero, be still my beating heart.
And this is where I struggled slightly, I found Eden’s constant yo-yoing in her affections and self-sabotaging behaviour annoying and immature and quite frankly at times a bit ungrateful.
This slightly affected my overall enjoyment here.
As I just felt there was no need for Edens constant angst and she was treating Legion a tad unfairly.
Poor Legion was so confused, unsure what he had done wrong and no matter how much he reassured Eden it was her he wanted, she said one thing but ultimately thought another.

“Eden, you have to believe that my feelings for you have nothing to do with Adriel. My interest in you existed long before I even knew she inhabited your body. And what grew between us from that point on was born from something much greater than anything I could have ever imagined. You did something that your mortal world has failed to for centuries: you surprised me. And just that simple, human act has invoked emotions that had lain dormant since my fall from grace. What this is…what we are…it’s bigger than the both of us, firecracker. That is why I claimed you.”


“You’re more, Eden. You’re everything I’ve been searching for—fighting for. You’re my heaven.”

“I didn’t fall from Heaven for Adriel. I fell because of her. But I would fall…for you. If I had to do it all again, I would fall for you, Eden.”

So I just really felt for Legion here and wanted him to get the girl in “End of Eden” L really wears his heart on his sleeve and it’s beautiful to behold.
But with Eden keeping secrets and basically on a different page altogether things were bound to come to a head and I just felt for him like massively.
“End of Eden” finishes again on a big cliffhanger and I was so glad I could just pick up the next instalment and carry on reading.
Though I struggled at times here with Edens personality this was still by far an excellent engrossing experience.
This is such an imaginative world that is so easy to get lost in and I am so looking forward to the next book in this thrilling saga.

Release Date-11th August 2016
Genre-Paranormal Romance
Kindle Edition-355 Pages

Twenty-two years ago, I was cut from a cold, sodden womb, and cradled in the filth and poverty of Chicago’s concrete arms. Statistically, I wasn’t supposed to survive these streets past the age of eighteen.

Fate had a different plan.

I was bred for one purpose and one purpose only: to unleash death and destruction on my world.

My thoughts are power.

My words are weapons.

Evil created me then grace tried to save me. But first… they tried to kill me.
They call themselves the Se7en. They are sin and salvation, and everything we’ve feared from the beginning of time. And their leader is the deadliest of them all.

He doesn’t lose.

He doesn’t compromise.

And most importantly, he doesn’t distract himself with mortal weakness.

Not until me.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he told me when he took me as his prisoner.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he’s been trying to tell himself ever since he took me into his arms.

Born Sinner (Se7en Sinners, #1)Born Sinner by S.L. Jennings

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 photo Born-Sinner-promo-1_zpspqfherld.jpg

I have been meaning to get around to this series for a while.
Previously reading The Dark/Light books by this author and loving them Born Sinner (Se7en Sinners, #1) by S.L. Jennings has been on my TBR pile for quite some time.
And while this didn’t draw me in initially quite as quickly as previous books I have read by this author I did get there in the end.
And when I did fall I was captivated by this vividly portrayed world.
Born Sinner tells the story of the seven.
Seven demons trying to redeem themselves by whatever means necessary, led by their leader “L” Legion.
Who can I just say is totally manalicious and super bad ass.

“Because I once was seraphim,” he pronounces, his all-commanding tone rumbling the floor beneath my socked feet. A blast of sweltering heat radiates around his entire frame, forcing me back. “But now… I… Am… Legion.”

There mission to stop the called, basically like Lucifers sleeper cells, dormant till activated to do horrific actions and “Eden” is one such cell.
“Kill one to save a million” is the motto they live by and how they justify their actions.
But Eden is something more and as L does a complete 360 and decides he needs to protect her maybe at first on account of the angel “Adriel” he senses inside her.
“Adriel” his first love who he fell from heaven for.
But also because he finds himself completely captivated by the enigma that is Eden.

“Because from the first moment I saw you—through the dingy window of that store, your headphones on, oblivious to the dangers right outside the door—I knew that I would die for you. So please…live for me. Just for a little while longer.”

So this book had everything a damaged anti-hero and one stubborn as hell heroine that’s ready to fight her feeling to the bitter end.
Drama, angst and betrayal from where you expect it least.
Just when you think you know where this is going it changes directions on you and scrambles your thought process once more.
And it has Angels and Demons, So, Man whats not to love here.
I absolutely fell hook line and sinker for our L, he was such a damaged but deep individual and I loved how hard he fell for Eden willing to do whatever it takes to protect her and keep her safe.

“When you find something worth living for, you won’t hesitate to die for it.” A small, sad smile rests upon his lips. “We’re all dead, firecracker, yet no one really dies. Don’t worry. I’ll make my way back to you.” “You promise?” I whisper. “Even if I have to crawl my way out from the depths of Hell, I’ll never leave you. Not again.”

Sigh so heart-thumpingly swoony.

Eden was that bit more difficult to get a handle on, she was a product of her upbringing and had clawed her way to adulthood with a tenuous hold on life.
While I admired her resilience and ability to adapt like a chameleon I also felt she was her own worse enemy on a course of self-sabotage she fought every good thing that came her way, I believe she had sentenced and judged herself to a solitary existence a long time past.
The secondary characters in this series were amazing, I adored them all especially the seven.
I also loved the added bonus of revisiting the Skotos family from Light/dark series that was a lovely touch and I loved that this also occupied the same world.
Only a couple issues here that bothered me and whilst this didn’t dampen my enjoyment here I thought I would just flag them for others.
I thought Legion went from Mr nasty to Mr nice without explanation and I did find this a bit odd.
There was no real explanation for his big turnaround and the second considering L tells Eden he was captivated with her from the very beginning I don’t get the original overall animosity he directed at her when taking her captive.
But as I said no biggie I still really enjoyed this, I was just slightly puzzled by these two facts.
So Born Sinner ended on a big Cliffhanger, like a real I need the next book right now cliffy.
And I was super, super shocked here, didn’t see that one coming at all.

So to conclude this was a fantastic gripping read with fantastic world building and an engaging storyline that I really enjoyed and highly recommend.

Unaware of the powers lurking within her, Caitlin opens a door between worlds, allowing a fallen angel to pass through the veil of darkness into the light.

So The crossing By E H James seemed an interesting premise.
It all revolves around Caitlin a girl who after tragically losing her best friend in an accident Unwittingly opens a door between worlds attracting a fallen angel who starts to feed off her emotions.
this was a short but sweet read. I found Caitlin herself to be a likeable character and the paranormal events occurring around her were interesting to behold.
I did think Some of the secondary characters could do with a bit more fleshing out as at times they seemed a bit one-dimensional in their behaviours especially the love interest, who I really didn’t like at all.
He came across as a bit of a dick if I’m honest, some background concerning his overall decisions would maybe make him seem a much more likeable character.
I instead vote for the priest/Angel for Caitlin’s love interest, I get the impression that he’s quite a yummy Fella and he has wings so need I say more.
So the way this ended I imagine this story will be the start of a series.
It will be really interesting to see where this is going as there are endless possibilities here regarding plot direction.
So overall, This was a fascinating idea but wasn’t quite my cup of tea, though I would still say It was an alright read that could be improved upon with some fleshing out.
I was provided with an ARC of The Crossing by E.H. James of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
