Uncategorized / April 28, 2015

Molly Brooks has earned her reputation: an Angel to the humans she’s saved, a nightmare to the supernaturals who cross her. She is the last and only line of defense between the innocents in her city and those who hunt them. She is feared. Loved. A legend in the making. But she’s barely hanging on.  She’s lost too much, become something she fears. The things she doesn’t know about her past threaten to destroy her as she tries to learn how to navigate the new world she’s created for herself.  Untangling the mysteries of her powers only reveals new dangers, more deadly than anything she could have imagined. Can she protect those she loves, those who have become her friends and family, from the nightmare of what she is? And what will it take to truly break her? Broken may have stolen a small piece of my soul.  I read it in less than a day, because I simply could not put it down.  Read on for my review! There wasn’t a single thing about this book that I didn’t love.  It pulled my heartstrings, it made me laugh, and boy did it make me fall in love! Molly’s journey through…

Surf & Surrender: Summer Love Series Book 2
Uncategorized / April 28, 2015

Sawyer broke Quinn’s heart 4 years ago when he disappeared without a word. Quinn moved on with her life–or at least she thought she had, until she rescues Sawyer’s little brother at the beach and realizes that the Carson family is back in town. Will Quinn surrender her heart once more to the man who shattered it so long ago, or will she hold the pieces close and protect herself at all costs? I wish I could rate this higher than 5 stars! I thought I loved the first book, Rock & Release, but it was nothing compared to how amazing Surf & Surrender was! The writing was, as expected, superb, and the characters were completely relatable. I also found the characters in this volume of the Summer Love series to be less angsty and a bit more mature. At times, I even forgot I was reading a New Adult. Though I’m normally not a fan of first person POV, I really didn’t find it to be bothersome in this book. Riley Edgewood is a master storyteller, and there wasn’t a single moment when I wanted to put this book down. In fact, I think I might have cried a little when I realized I was…

Rock & Release: Summer Love Series Book 1
Uncategorized / April 28, 2015

This book made me feel ALL the feelings. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to scream and throw the book…and the love scenes? Go ahead and grab a seat in the walk-in freezer, because man oh man! Cassidy is reeling after the loss of her brother. Her parents are unreachable, lost in their own grief, and Cassidy just wants to lose herself in something fun and entirely untouched by her brother’s memory (unlike the summer internship she has lined up–which was supposed to be her brother’s). So, on a whim, she drops her internship and takes a job at a bar, where she finds more than she bargained for in Gage. I’ll admit, there were times that I hated Cassidy and her boneheaded decisions. And I’m normally not a fan of first person books, BUT I think the point of view and excellent writing made it really easy to connect with Cassidy. So even when I wanted to punch her in the face, I still felt for her. If you’re looking for a well-written NA that will wring you out and leave you wanting more, this book by the fabulous Riley Edgewood is absolutely the book for you! 4 thumbs up! (Big…

Lost Girl: Hidden Book 1
Uncategorized / April 28, 2015

Molly Brooks is a telepathic vigilante with a few secrets and a mysterious past. Determined to make something of her bizarre powers, she devotes herself to saving those who need her most. One night, she’s followed by a powerful being in a pickup truck, and her world will never be the same. Finding herself thrust into a world full of supernatural beings she could have only imagined, Molly learns how powerful she really is, and how much she stands to lose. —Book Teaser  After reading the premise above and seeing the rave review from one of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Hunter, I was chomping at the bit to try this new series.  I have a soft spot for Urban Fantasy and kick-ass heroines, what can I say? The book started out promising.  I saw a lot of un-plumbed depth in Molly, our heroine and, despite not really having any kind of knowledge of or interest in Detroit, Vanderlinden created an interesting world with intriguing characters.  She had me hooked, and I enjoyed the tension between Molly, Nain and Brennan.  But then, at around 75% into the book, I almost put it down.  And I was angry.  Because I had loved the book so…
