BLURB:

She is pretty and talented – sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But… they are brother and sister.

Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the stress of their lives—and the way they understand each other so completely—has also also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this devastating has no happy ending.

REVIEW:

This book is not for the weak hearted, it’s not your typical love story, it is not pretty with roses and candy. It makes you want to cry, it makes you confused and it will have you like ” What the fuck did I just read”?!?!

face

How many of you little sisters out there have come to a point in your life when you look at your older brother and think “Yeah, I’d hit that,” and not in the punch-you-in-the-arm kind of way?

Raise your hand. No one? Oh – you haven’t?! Really? Are you sure?! Because im pretty fucking sure I have never once thought of my brother the way this girl does. Its scary and disgusting but I just couldnt put it down.

I’m not saying I liked it, ohh No NO NO! Just the opposite in fact, I hated this book, but I desperately needed to see the ending, to see how their story ends,  and honestly to see if they will come to their damn senses and stop thinking they are in love..

I watched a movie like this book before called “Flowers in the Artic” and it had me in tears, I mean bawling like a big ole baby, but this book had me on the edge of my seat. I alternated from wanting to kick their lil asses to wanting to give them hugs because they are just kids after all.

696106Incest has a very long and sordid history. As long as there are relatives, there will be incest. Unless humans soon evolve into a Vulcan-like race that suppress their emotions and always base their decisions upon logic. Which sounds most illogical.

Who should read this:

Let’s just say that “brotherly love” or “sisterly love” is not for everyone. In fact, it’s not for most people. Firstly: The large majority of siblings just aren’t interested in each other. Second: If everyone participated in it – the human race would quickly devolve and be lost into genetic disorder. That’s just genetics.

end

I suggest that only MATURE teens read this.

It would be completely accurate for me to say that I have NEVER read a book like this in my life. Forbidden is the very definition of sexual tension.

Let’s face it. Teens have raging hormones. I know I did. I would have in NO way been able to handle this book as a young teen. I already wanted to do all kinds of naughty things without having an influence like this in my life, and I know that if I had read it before I had matured hormonally – I would have rushed out and tried to seduce the first “off limits” guy I could find. And I could have done a lot of damage to myself and other people. I was not emotionally mature enough to handle this book then and many young girls will be in the same situation that I was.

It is difficult to say for sure how or to whom this book should be marketed. This is a young adult book with ADULT content. I am in no way an advocate of censorship, but honestly some teens are just NOT ready for the material in this book. It’s just my recommendation that this book not be taken lightly. This isn’t the new generation’s Princess Bride. This book deals with things that not every teen needs to or would want to read about. All I’m saying is please, please – use discretion. Teens need to decide whether they are really interested and prepared for this book; they may even need help making their decision.

And totally no spoilers but the ending is a total complete MIND FUCK!

Seducing Cinderella

Author: Gina L Maxwell

Synopsis:

Blurb
Mixed martial arts fighter Reid Andrews’s chance to reclaim his title as light heavyweight champ is shattered when he’s injured only months before the rematch. To make sure he’s healed in time, his trainer sends him to recuperate under a professional’s care—Reid’s best friend’s little sister, all grown up.

Disorganized and bookish Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. She’d do anything to catch the eye of a doctor she’s crushed on for years, so when Reid offers seduction lessons in exchange for 24/7 conditioning for the biggest fight of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance.

Soon Reid finds him himself in the fight of his life…winning Lucie’s heart before she gives it to someone else.

Review:

I absolutely fell in love with this book.. I read it in 3 hours and just couldn’t put it down. And when it finished I was kind of sad. Iv never been much of an MMA fan, but the way Reid is just so dreamy and masculine and possessively gorgeous got me hooked.

Seducing Cinderella was all about overcoming insecurities, both for the hero and heroine. Once the heroine worked through hers, bam, the hero’s popped up. The ending was perfect! I loved it and can’t wait to read more from the very promising new author Gina Maxwell.

I suggest you get yourself a copy this minute and indulge! 😀

The Most anticipated book of 2013…

Women around the world are waiting impatiently and anxiously waiting for this particular book.. Having read the first 2 which ended in so much drama and so many questions in the air i can say that this is the most anticipated book of the next year.

The book I am talking about is “Entwined with you”  by Sylvia day.. The 3rd and possibly last book in the Crossfire trilogy. I say possibly last because when the author was asked if this will be the last book she stated:

“Well… as I’m still writing Entwined with You I can’t say for sure. Crossfire is supposed to be a trilogy and if everything works out, it still will be. But Gideon has a lot to work through, and after all he and Eva have endured to reach their happy ending I don’t want to rush it. So if it’s best, I’ll write a fourth installment. But I won’t unnecessarily drag the story out beyond its natural end”

Like i said, this book is a 3rd one in this series.All of the books in this trilogy are a steamy read that will have you furiously flipping pages.? ? Glamour ?I can’t wait to see what happens next to Gideon and Eva.? ? The Book Reading Gals ?When it comes to brewing up scorchingly hot sexual chemistry, Day has few literary rivals.? ? Booklist ?

. The first book called ” Bared to you” was amazing.

Synopsis: He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…

Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires.The bonds of his love transformed me, even as i prayed that the torment of our pasts didn’t tear us apart…

The second book is ” Reflected in you”.. was even more so addictive

Synopsis: Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction?my every desire?mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We?d never work. It was too hard, too painful?except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession?

And the most awaited of all is “Entwined with you” which promises to be a riveting read.

Here is a snippet from the book :

Disclaimer: May be edited or deleted prior to publication…

“What the hell was I supposed to do, Eva? I didn’t know you were out there.” Gideon’s voice deepened, roughened. “If I’d known, I would’ve hunted you down. I wouldn’t have waited a second to find you. But I didn’t know, and I settled for less. So did you. We both wasted ourselves on the wrong people.”

(from a conversation about past relationships)

Doesnt that just make you wish you could find out whats next in the journey of Gideon and Eva.. :-/

The release day for this book is May 2013

 

Bared To You…

AUTHOR: Sylvia Day

SYNOPSIS

Our journey began in fire… Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness-beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily… Gideon knew . He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds… and desires. The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn’t tear us apart… “When it comes to brewing up scorchingly hot sexual chemistry, Day has few literary rivals.”

REVIEW

I absolutely loved this book, i truly could not put it down, the moment i bought it i tore through the wrapping and started reading and didnt put it down since i finished it. The story is set in the background of New York and the characters are very interesting from the very beginning of the book, they make you curious as there are many holes in the story from the start making you have a million questions and conjure up a thousand answers and “what ifs”.

The characters are more than well developed and come with a twinge of wickedness to them. You might not like some of them but they will definitely hold the whole story together. This book is not only intensely hot, it is also very sad and you go through the ups and downs with the characters as you read it.

Do have a look at it and happy super reading! 🙂

Forbidden Desires..

AUTHOR: Marina Anderson

SYNOPSIS

Harriet’s honeymoon takes a surprising turn when her husband invites another couple to join them in this sequel to Dark Secret After her wedding to film director Lewis James, Harriet Radcliffe is dismayed to learn that her husband has invited another couple, his married friends Noella and Edmund, to join them on their honeymoon. It soon emerges that Lewis is planning to make another of his hugely successful cinema verite films, using real life as his material. Knowing that Harriet finds Edmund attractive, he plans to explore her forbidden desires. However, Edmund has designs on Harriet, and Lewis’s plan goes awry as he finds himself competing to regain his bride.

REVIEW

Not all the characters in this book are not as evolved and as growing as i would like it to be. But it is an “OK” read, the main character evolves and changes as the twists and turns of the book give him new feelings he never thought he would have. The scenes are too set up though for my liking and not as spontaneous as i would like.

The book has the statement ” Devoured Fifty Shades? Then lose yourself in Forbidden Desires”.. which i don’t see as a real fit to the book since it is nothing like Fifty Shades Of Grey at all.. But for erotica lovers,this is the book for you.

I doubt i will be reading anything else by Marina Anderson, but like i said, if you are a fan of erotica then this is a good one for you.

Dark Secrets..

AUTHOR: Marina Anderson

SYNOPSIS

You’ve devoured Fifty Shades . . . now dive in to the wild intensity of Dark Secret . Harriet Radcliffe is bored with her life. At twenty-three, her steady job and safe engagement seem very dull. If she is to inject a little excitement into her life, she realises, now is the time to do it. But the excitement lying in wait for Harriet is beyond even her wildest ambitions. Answering a job advertisement to assist a world-famous actress, Harriet finds herself plunged into an intense and secret world of sexual obsession – playing an unwitting part in a very private drama, but discovering in the process more about her own desires than she had ever dreamed possible . . . The prequel to Forbidden Desires

REVIEW

I personally never read erotic novels, and to tell the truth i did not think it would be such..( i had an idea but it by far surpassed my thoughts). The story is one which could be somewhat interesting if not for the many sultry scenes. The storyline is well formed, but it is basically formed around the sex scenes. Characters are highly manipulative and develop as the story continues. It is very disturbing and keeps you interested to see where the story leads.

But i believe it is rather predictable, through out the entire time reading it i could tell where the story was heading, but of course with a twist and surprise ending at the end i was very satisfied and shocked.

They say on the cover “You’ve devoured Fifty Shades . . . now dive in to the wild intensity of Dark Secret” but i would not suggest this read for the people who enjoyed 50 shades( as i did), because they are both erotic, but 50 shades is for romantics and this one is for those who just want some steamy,sexy, raunchy scenes.. 🙂
