The fork in the road in front of me screamed go right … 

Giano gave me life.
I gave him death.

The path to peace inside of me was covered in his blood.

Could I ever believe in love again?

Instead of going right, though, I veered left into the depths of a world unknown.

Seeking Solace: Angelina’s Restoration by Chelsea Camaron
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

SeekingSolace Banner

So this is the second book in the Love in the Dark series and while I didn’t enjoy this quite as much as its predecessor it still certainly packed a massive punch leaving me reeling with that cliffhanger finale.
This carries on almost instantly after the events of “Stay” and after the shocking finale we were given there understandably Fallyn/Angelina is deep down in a hole of darkness and despair with a life-altering desition straight ahead of her.
Does she reclaim her old life or follow Her Strangers wishes embracing her identity as Angelina.
With the help of her Uncle Zo-Zo Angelina embarks on a whole new pathway leaving her old life behind for fresh new shores and college living.
At first, struggling and feeling adrift without her Giano; Angelina struggles against the tide with feelings of loneliness and isolation almost adrift without a familiar anchor.
But there is one bright spot on the near horizon her new college professor Shawn Patrick and due to the forbidden aspect of there relationship these two start a slow build friendship that eventually culminates in so much more.
She feels an almost instant connection to him and with the parallels of there upbringings.
Shawn himself has walked away from his father’s criminal lifestyle forging his own path ahead as a history professor.
And though Angelina is still knee deep in secrets and lies she falls hard and fast.
So as I said earlier I really enjoyed this; it was dialled back a notch from the previous book concentrating much more on the budding friendship emerging and also Angelinas growing rebirth of healing.
Told again from our girls POV; so you really do get a sense of where her heads at after previous fallout.
“Seeking Solace” does a great job of lulling you into a false sense of security and just when you think maybe out girl is finally due for some overdue peace and happiness; it strikes, like a snake injecting its venom; re-contaminated everything and dragging Angelina back into that world she has so desperately tried to leave far behind in her dust.
That ending; what a shocker that was, like seriously.
So I am so looking forward to the next instalment here and I’m hoping maybe there’s a big pot of karma at the end of the rainbow of ruins that seems to be Angelina’s recurring nightmare.
The poor girl so needs to catch a break.
I for one will be waiting with bated breath for the anticipated outcome here.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of “Seeking Solace: Angelina’s Restoration (Love in the Dark Book 2)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.

🦋ARC-Book Review🦋 Twisted Fate (Twisted, #1) by Jessi Elliott🦋

🦋ARC-BOOK REVIEW🦋

Release Date-13th February 2018
Genre-New Adult Fantasy
Kindle Edition-246 Pages

Being kidnapped by the leader of the fae really puts a dent in your senior year.

Aurora Marshall is sharp, witty, and always has a plan. Ready to finish her business degree and graduate, her life is going smoothly—until the night she meets Tristan Westbrook.

Tristan, the overbearing, gorgeous fae leader, and an admired businessman in the human world is all kinds of dangerous. While he finds Aurora intriguing, her refusal to bend to his will keeps them locked in a constant power struggle.

Entering into a deal is the only way to escape Tristan’s clutches, which only plunges Aurora deeper into the fae world. With her future at stake, she is forced to handle his arrogance and extraordinary fae abilities as she fights to stay grounded in her mundane life.

Not to mention her struggle to ignore the growing attraction she knows she shouldn’t feel for the man who kidnapped her.

When people said college would be the most exciting time of her life, Aurora never thought this is what they meant.

ARC Book Review
Release Date-13/2/18

Twisted Fate (Twisted, #1) by Jessi Elliott is a fabulous debut offering.
In fact, it’s hard to believe this is from a debut author.
Jessie Elliot has managed to completely smash it with Twisted Fate.
I don’t usually read many New Adult novels, but I do like to partake in a good fantasy and I’m a sucker for anything involving the fae.
This is a fantastic addition to the genre.

So in This, we have Aurora Marshall a fourth-year business student currently attending college.
In a case of mistaken identity, Aurora finds herself abducted from a college party and in the hands of Tristan the gorgeously overbearing leader of the dark fae.
Her eyes opened to a world she had no idea existed.
Now in danger from various factions, Aurora finds herself in the position of needing Tristan’s protection.
Entering into a wary alliance Aurora finds herself in the employ of Tristan’s very successful business as part of her final studies criteria.
As the pair become closer a mutual attraction develops between Tris and Rory.
But there’s a war brewing between the Dark and the Light and Aurora as Tristan’s weakness might just get stuck right smack in the middle of it.

So I really adored Twisted Fate, from the second I started reading this I was absolutely transfixed with this fascinating tale.
Both Aurora and Tristan are such great relatable and likeable individuals.
There was also the added bonus of the well rounded diverse secondary players that were involved.
So many new authors make the mistake of not fleshing these out, not Jessie, these are just as multi-faceted as the main players.

There are the usual twists and turns with this along with some extremely heartbreaking moments where Tristan really comes into his own showing Aurora just what kind of man or fairy he really is.
The ending itself, well let’s just say I really didn’t see that one coming.
It will be very interesting to see where the author takes this next.
And I’m gagging for the next instalment I need this so now!!!

So there we have it a brilliant debut offering that’s completely knocked it out of the park.
Give this a go its all sorts of fairylicious and it’s certainly such addictive reading it should come with its own warning.

I was provided with an ARC of Twisted Fate (Twisted, #1)

💙Book Review💙Too Easy (She Asked for It 0.5)💙by Willow Winters💙

💙BOOK REVIEW💙

Release Date-December 10th 2017
Genre-NA Romance
Kindle Edition-74 Pages

WHORE, SLUT, AN EASY LAY… I’VE BEEN CALLED A LOT OF THINGS.

It turns me on most when a man says it while he’s taking me from behind.

People say there’s a reason I am the way I am.
And sure, some stuff happened to me.
Some messed up sh*t I’d never wish on anyone.
But I’ve been like this long before that night.

That’s not what this story’s about, though.
You think you know? You don’t know a thing.
Let’s start from the beginning, all about how I asked for it.

From USA Today and Wallstreet Journal best selling author Willow Winters comes an emotional dark romance.
Too Easy is a 7,500 word prologue to the standalone, She Asked for It.

Too Easy (She Asked for It, #0.5)Too Easy by Willow Winters

🌟🌟🌟STARS
Too Easy (She Asked for It, #0.5) by Willow Winters is a short prequel to She Asked for It.
It was short and sweet but was an intriguing introduction to the main event.
So this teased and set the stage,
Not quite sure what the full story is but I’m guessing it has something to do with what happens to
Alison while at Mikes house and the aftermath.
This prequel was vague in content just a glimmer into the world its set in really.
We are introduced to Alison and Dean and teased really into what is to come.
It definitely caught my attention and interest enough for me to check out “She asked for it”
This is a very short prequel, not really enough to warrant calling it a novella either, this is more just an appetiser before the main course.
I found “Too Easy” to be well written and it kept full my attention throughout.
The lower star rating reflects its length.
