E-book source: NetGalley

Recommended for 18+ due to mature themes and sexual content

Prepare to be… Charmed!

Daisy le Fey is good at a lot of things. Math, science, accidentally turning people into pumpkins… Unfortunately, she’s not good at the one thing hiring managers look for when filling open positions for magical beings: Magic.

When she jeopardizes her apprenticeship by getting involved with sexy mortal Trevor Masterson, it’s one disaster too many. In order to stay out of purgatory, she’s going to have to ditch the human—and her one chance at true love

My Review

StarStarStarStar

 

I enjoyed reading Charmed. It was a sweet, romantic and sexy story. Ridley writes extremely well and I did not find it hard to follow the story line.  The world she created for Daisy (tooth-fairy apprentice) and Trevor (human) was quite enjoyable. However, there were some parts that I found to be silly and unsuitable for the story line. Then again as I continued reading in all made sense, the main character Daisy le Fey is a true spirit. She is a bright spunky 27 year-old who is on a mission and someone who has the determination to get what she wants. And what is it that she wants? Respect! And in the process of gaining the respect of everyone in Nether-Netherland she finds her One True Love.

Everything seems to go wrong for Daisy and Trevor. They don’t know what they want. And in that one statement “they don’t know what they want” made this story that much better. Because who in “real life” knows what they want? No one, that’s who! And when do we realize that we want something? Yup you got it, when it’s gone! As in all love stories there are happy and sad parts and Ridley wrote them well. I was right there with all the character’s felling every emotion they felt  and those incidents/emotions are what made me want to finish the story that much faster. The need to find out if “love conquers” all was intense!

I recommend this book for those of you 18+ because though there are some silly parts there are also some heated parts where Daisy gets to know Trevor on a whole new level and vise verse. 😉

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a charming read a perfect distraction to take you away from our world into that of the fantasy Nether-Netherland. It will bring a smile to your face, have you laughing and thinking that maybe, just maybe true love can exist.

Book Description

Publication Date: April 17, 2012
Jessie moved from New York to North Carolina over summer break. Now that Jessie and her mom are living with her grandma, she finds out the split up of her parents is more complicated than she thought. Living in a retirement community is not how she wanted the summer before her junior year to start.

Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. The instant he shook her hand, she felt warm vibrations running through her veins. They soon learn what it means to be bound to one another. Fate is more than responsible for their meeting and their future together.

This book is appropriate for young teens and people of all ages. Remember what it was like to kiss for the first time, or what it was like to fall in love.

This paranormal romance will keep you on the edge of your seat with humor, romance, and determination. Fall head over heels for Caleb and Jessie.

Captured (The Captive Series Book 1) by Erica Stevens

captured

Blood Slave.

Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. No matter what becomes of her though, Aria knows that she must keep her identity hidden from the monsters imprisoning her. She has already been branded a member of the rebellion, but the vampires do not know the true depth of her involvement with it, and they must never know.

Though hoping for death, Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Especially once she learns his true identity as a prince within the royal family; the same royal family that started the war that ultimately brought down humankind, reducing them to nothing more than servants and slaves.

Aria is determined to hate the prince, determined not to give into him in anyway, but his strange kindness, and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding.

The Faerie Guardian, Part I: Guardian (Creepy Hollow) by Rachel Morgan 

guardian

Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day’s work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone—she’s about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until a cute human boy who can somehow see through her faerie glamour follows her into the fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot—and it’ll take all her training to get out alive.

[This short ebook forms Part I of the novel The Faerie Guardian.]

Exciting news for those Merry Gentry fans!!!

23 Jul

Today I was going over the books that I’ve read in the past and I couldn’t help but think that there are so many series out there that I felt were NOT done! I mean I’m sure I’m not the only one that hates to wait years or even months to find out what happens to our favorite characters. One series in particular that I’ve had in mind is The Merry Gentry Series by Laurell K. Hamilton.

The Merry Gentry Series

Meredith Gentry is a faerie princess turned private investigator. Merry, the only Sidhe royal to be born on American soil, fearing the continuous assassination attempts on her life thinly disguised as duels, flees the Unseelie Court in a final act of self-preservation. She is hiding from her family and her past in Los Angeles as a private investigator at Grey’s Detective Agency.

There have been a total of 8 books published to date the last back in 2009. And I just read a post from LKH titled Merry, Merry, quite contrary that her 9th book in this series will be coming out in the Summer of 2014!!!
