Giveaway and Review of New Release: "Whatnots and Doodads" by Stacey Kennedy








Title: Whatnots and Doodads
Series: I wish! Single Title
Author: Stacey Kennedy












Official Synopsis
For Bryanna, a witch from the Asheville Coven, magic is on the fritz. Shunned by her coven and her boyfriend Layton for her unruly magic, she seeks a new life for herself. It just so happens, fate steps in and brings her to Strange Hollow--a place where being different is not only acceptable, but encouraged.

When Bryanna arrives in Strange Hollow, Zeke, a demon gone good, is burning with Hell’s fire over her. Not only has she set his world ablaze, but he’s found one soul he can save. He’s determined to free her from the insecurities that have damaged her soul.

Together they experience lava-hot passion as they weave their way through a tornado of emotions. But when Layton returns for her, will Zeke’s attempts to break the unworthy cage woven around her be enough to keep her in Strange Hollow forever?

My Review
Byanna has been an outcast all of her life. A witch whose magic only leads to whatnots and doodads (aka: odds and ends) leaves her the black sheep in not just her coven, but life. She makes peace with it because she has one person she can rely on, her boyfriend Layton. But when she realizes that he is only after her money, she makes the biggest decision of her life - to run away from it all. All alone, she doesn't know what to do until a chance encounter brings her to Strange Hollow where others like her (Unique Supernaturals) have escaped their tormented fates and live happy lives. Here she meets Zeke, a demon with a heart of gold and the looks of a god. Suddenly her lonely life is turned upside down by this incredible angel of a demon who makes it his mission to save her from the torment that was her life. But when Layton comes to retrieve her, will she succumb to the man she once loved, or will she be able to escape her past and break free of her cage of insecurities with Zeke by her side?

This book in three words: Witty, Original, and Hot! The love between Bryanna and Zeke is both sweet and incredibly steamy. The challenges they face will have your heart-pumping, while you laugh, cry, and rapidly turn the pages for more.

This book is rated 5 fangs:

Takeover! Giveaway and Review of Whispers of Evil by Stacey Kennedy







Title: Whispers of Evil
Series: The Watchers Series, Book 2
Author: Stacey Kennedy











Official Synopsis
Can the whispers of evil be hushed by love, or will it be lost forever…


Nayeli has been locked away, hidden from the world in a mental institution, all due to the whispers of evil which have corrupted her mind. Unbeknownst to her, the voices that have plagued her are a gift given to only one kind―Watchers.

Griffin, her Seeker, is about to break this cage of imprisonment woven around her and give her a new chance at life. But when a demon leaves the confines of Hell to create havoc in Louisiana, will his love for Nayeli free her wounded heart, or will she succumb to the whispers which threaten to steal her soul?
*WARNING: Explicit sex between a timid Watcher and a gorgeous Seeker, and a ceremony that will certainly raise eyebrows!

My Review
This series should be called the Takers, because it takes your breathe away, takes your temperature to new heights, takes your heart and turns it to mush, and takes your reality and makes it fade away, as the world of the Watchers and their Seekers consumes you until your whole world is theirs right up until you read the words "The End." After that you will be in for a few very nice (and racy) dreams :-) In one word: Sensational! If you are a lover of PNR and UF, then this is a must read book/series.

Nayeli has lived in a world of nightmares. She has been abused and locked up in a mental institution due to the whispers that invade her mind. These whispers of evil call to her and drugs that keep her in a state of comatose are the things that doctors use to  "cure" her. Her life changes when Griffin, a super-sexy Seeker finds her and frees her from her world of torture. With her new found freedom and her Seeker by her side, she finds that those whispers of evil are her gift as a Watcher. She is meant to use those whispers to help find and kill those evil creatures that are killing innocent humans.With her world spinning from the hell of her prior imprisonment, to the world where the fate of innocent lives rest on her shoulders -will Nayeli embrace her new fate and push her past to the background, or will the whispers of evil consume her and destroy it all: the world, her new family, her love, and herself.

This books is a page-turner of a read filled with romance, suspense and mystery that will have you laughing, crying and screaming for more!

A Deadly Whisper (The Watchers, #1)




Title: A Deadly Whisper
Series: The Watchers Series
Author: Stacey Kennedy












Official Synopsis
Will destiny be enough to break her free of a lifetime of secrets?


Knox, the Seeker, has waited two hundred years for his Watcher and now he’s found her. Paxtyn, however, is unwilling to join him. The more he tries to prove himself to her, the more she pushes him away.

Paxtyn has spent a lifetime keeping her secret hidden from the world, but now, she must confront these deadly visions head on. When a string of murders brings her into New Orleans, she must come to terms with her personal demons and use her gift to communicate with spirits to discover who has ended their lives.

*WARNING: Explicit sex between a sassy Watcher and a sexy Seeker, and a ceremony that will certainly raise eyebrows!


My Review
It was love at first word. This book has everything I love in a good urban/PNR romance: a sassy heroine, a sexy hero, sexual tension/ romance, danger and tons of action. I even found a new book boyfriend: Tate, you are the man ;-) To sum it up, this book is a romance-filled, heart-pumping, adrenaline-rushing, heat-inducing, danger-filling, steam-up-your-windows, must-read book! Think JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood meets Gene Showalter. We are entering a new world filled with Watchers, Seekers and Secrets...oh my!

Paxtyn has lived with a secret: she can both see the murders and communicate with the dead. If she passes a place where a person has been murdered, the vision hits her. Wanting to lead a normal life, she buries her abilities even from her bff Tate, a super hot cop that has been her friend since the college days. Her life changes when she meets Knox, the man who not only knows her secret, but holds the answers to her visions, and is the most gorgeous thing walking the planet. Her life is rocked when she finds out that she is a Watcher whose ability is a gift to help save innocent humans from the evil creatures of the Underworld, and Knox is her Seeker, bonded to her in ways unimaginable. With Tate and Knox by her side, she is thrust into the world of evil creatures, murdered humans, angels vs demons and in the middle...the Seekers and their Watchers who together are protecting the innocents. With the world on her shoulders, and Knox by her side she must overcome her lifelong need to hide who she is and embrace not only her new life, but the growing feelings that she has for Knox. If she doesn't, she could lose everything she knows and loves, including her life.

Steamy, Sexy, Scary and all kinds of Sensational. This is book one of the Watcher's Series and a definite must read!

Takeover! Giveaway Info and Review of Stolen Dreams by Stacey Kennedy

Stolen Dreams (The Lingering Spirit Book One)






Title: Stolen Dreams
Series: The Lingering Spirit, Book One
Author: Stacey Kennedy









Official Synopsis
Tess Jennings has the ability to see and talk to spirits. On a daily basis, they harass and annoy her to save their souls. Sometimes she helps, other times she ignores them, but one ghost will give her no choice. Kipp McGowan, a cop with the Memphis Police Department, uses his ghostly charms to gain her attention and forces her to expose herself to his partner.

As she’s pulled into the five year old cold case of Hannah Reid she wants no part of, she finds herself in more than one precarious situation. But that’s the least of her worries―Tess begins to have a serious problem on her hands. Kipp might be dead, but he’s drop-dead gorgeous and she’s beginning to forget that he’s a ghost.
Murder and corruption has brought Tess and Kipp together. But as her feelings for Kipp deepen, she suspects she just signed herself up for a one-way ticket to the nut house, and can only hope, straitjackets come in a size four.
 
My Review
Completely original, tear-jerking, laugh-inducing, mystery-riddled, romance-sizzled, twister of a read that will have you racing through the pages and begging for more of this supernatural "odd couple".
 
Tess Jennings tries hard to lead a normal life. She works, hangs with her friends, but she has one problem:  she can see and talk to ghosts. They want her to help them cross over and sometimes she helps them, but many times she ignores them in hopes that they will get the picture and let her lead a "normal" life. It was going well for her until Kipp McGowan barrels into her life. He's is hot, a cop, persistent, and also dead. With his death being linked to a cold case murder, he "asks" (aka harasses) Tess to help him. Suddenly, she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation that puts her right in the killers path. A murderer doesn't want to be found and was willing to kill Kipp, a cop to keep that secret, will Tess be next?
 
With a murderer on her heels, you would think that her life couldn't get anymore complicated...well, you would be wrong. With her life caught in the whirlwind, it's Kipp who she relies on and soon they find themselves with more to lose that just a murder case, they are in love. Now it's no longer just a race against time to capture the murderer, it's also a fight to keep the person they love...each other. The clues are piling up, Tess and Kipp's love is growing, and the murderer's in middle capable of ruining it all. Will Tess lose the man she loves, and find the murderer, or will she lose something even more important...her life?
 
This book is amazing! Original, witty, suspenseful, and full of steamy romance that will leave you breathless.

Q. Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.

I am lucky that I have a number of people that I can talk to about my paromantasy obsessions, since they, themselves are also addicts. Some of fellow addicts include my MIL, my office buddy Earl, and my sister Tina whom I purchased the Vampire Academy for, and she still hasn't read it! Tina, if you are reading this: stop, pick up the book and read it. She is a Twilight fan who feels like reading another YA PNR is cheating on her beloved series. I'm threatening bodily harm so that she can finally read my all-time favorite YA PNR series, VA..lol. Hey, I can do that! What are sisters for? :-)

Book Blogger Hop


Question:"Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."

I was reading The Magical Sword Series by Stacey Kennedy. The main character, Nexi Jones, is a kick-ass heroine who finds out she is a half witch/half-guardian and that her job is to protect the innocents from the supernaturals who side with the Underworld. She is innocent, yet snarky; sweet, yet dangerous, and a complete force to be reckoned with. Think of Rose from the Vampire Academy when she is older and wiser combined with Mercy Thompson from the Mercy Thompson series, and you would have Nexi.

Takeover! Giveaway Info and Review of Silent Howl by Stacey Kennedy

Silent Howl





Title: Silent Howl
Series: The Blue Blood Series, Book Two
Author: Stacey Kennedy










Official Synopsis
Rynn Murphy’s a werewolf and she’s in a state of bliss--her junkie parents are in recovery for their drug addiction. Her Grandfather, Pops, who has Alzheimer’s is settled into a nursing home in Utah. She’s just witnessed the bonding ceremony of her friends, Nexi and Kyden from the Otherworld. With her mate, Briggs by her side, life can’t get any better.

That is, until Rynn is brought to Philadelphia. As a Blue Blood werewolf, she’s been given a special gift to possess a strong scent. After horrific murders take place in the Pennsylvania territory, Rynn must use this ability to seek the killer.

The task does not come easily and Rynn struggles. The human in her flees from danger. The wolf in her is desperate to end the killer’s murderous rampage. Rynn must reconcile the two halves while these murders begin to cross State lines. Soon, danger is all around them. Rynn will have to decide what is more important--the human who remains in her or the wolves she has sworn to protect…

My Review
Danger, Suspense, Romance, Mystery...everything we have come to know and love when picking up a Stacey Kenndey book is here and my howl is not silent - Stacey Kennedy is a literary urban fantasy romance writing genious! Silent Howel is the second book of The Blue Bloods Series and it brings back our favorite wolves: Rynn, Briggs, Valor and the crew with even more danger, more suspense, more mystery, and (last but not least) hot, steamy romance! There is even a guest appearance from Nexi and Kyden and the rest of The Magical Swords family!

Rynn made it past the last mission by the skin of her teeth, but a werewolf's job, especially that of a Blue Blood, is never over. Murders are climbing in the wolf community and when one strikes the child of an Alpha, Rynn is called in to help with the case. Being a Blue Bloof she is gifted with an extra gift. With her mate Briggs and head honcho Valor by her side, they set off on a mission that brings them face to face with the greatest danger they've had to face yet. The only way to make it out alive is to finally except the werewolf within her. Her human is fighting her wolf, while the world around her is closing in. Will she be able to finally accept her wolf and help protect her new family, or will the human in her hold her back? With all she loves in the balance, its up to Rynn to put an end to the murders and save those around her, but will the struggle within be too much?

This book is amazing! Rynn's struggle with who she is has everyone rooting her. The violent wolf is battling the compassionate human with her, while she also struggles to find a killer and save her new werewolf family. Luckily for her dreamy Briggs is there for her to help every step of the way. With everything going haywire around her, she is put in a position where she either lets her wolf finally take over, or lose everything she loves. The suspense, the mystery, the romance and the danger will have you laughing, crying, screaming, and on the edge of your seat until you read the words "the end."

This book is rated 5 fangs:

Takeover! Giveaway Info and Review of An Everlasting Bite by Stacey Kennedy

An Everlasting Bite






Title: An Everlasting Bite
Series: The Blue Blood Series, Book One
Author: Stacey Kennedy









Official Synopsis
Love is born between strangers, yet built upon a bond soul deep―one Alpha's vow to protect his mate from looming danger, all the while, mending her soul and stirring her wolfish desires.


A vicious werewolf attack in Plymouth, Minnesota leaves a young woman violated, bitten and now, transformed into werewolf. But Rynn Murphy doesn't have to face this transformation alone--she has her mate by her side. And the charming Briggs--Beta to the Patriarch, Valor--is eager to ease her into this new life and mend her battered soul.


With only weeks to adjust to her new fur, Rynn, follows Briggs while he assists in locating the daughter of the Montana's Alpha, who was abducted from her home. But this journey is not without danger. And soon, they discover the ones who have taken this young wolf do not want her found and will stop at nothing to keep her hidden. Or so it may seem, as bodies begin to drop around them, the murderous attempts start to appear more as a hit than a smoke screen--leaving only one question, who is the intended target...
 
My Review
The Magical Swords series and Nexi Jones story my be complete, but the world they live in still has tons of action, especially amongst the werewolves! Get ready for another adventure that will leave your mind spinning, your blood boiling, and your finger turning until the very end!
 
Rynn has been sexually assaulted, battered, and bitten with nearly zero chance of living, except we are talking about the equally innocent, yet determined Rynn Murphy. Now that she has survived a werewolf attack, what she faces may be an even bigger feat - life as a werewolf. One thing she learns quickly is that werewolves are completely different from humans, especially when it comes to love. She is instantly connected to the super sexy and sweet Briggs, Beta to the Patriarch. Destined to be mates, they are united,, instantly connected in heart and soul. Suddenly the world seems to finally be looking up for her - that is until an attempted murder is made, an Alpha's daughter is kidnapped, and she must both help and defend herself against the other werewolves being the newbie and only non-born werewolf in existence. On top of that, she is Briggs mate, making her third in command and right in the center of danger...exactly where she doesn't want to be. The world is spinning around her, the mysteries are spiraling out of control and there is someone who may just want her dead. Will she be able to get control of her life and stop the threats around her, or will she lose it all - including her life?The race is on to uncover the truth, her powers and get control of her life before someone ends it all.
 
This book is everything we love when picking up a Stacey Kennedy book: tons of action, heat-inducing romance, spine-tingling danger, and mind-bending mysteries that will have you playing "Guess Who?" until the very end.

Takeover! Giveaway Info and Review of First and Last by Stacey Kennedy

First And Last





Title: First And Last
Series: The Magical Sword, Book Four (Finale)
Author: Stacey Kennedy










Synopsis
Meet Nexi Jones—Witch, Guardian and now, Lady of the Underworld. Embracing her new role, Nexi begins the task of changing a world led by darkness. But not everyone is happy to see her rise to power. Before long, a resistance within the Underworld is forming.

As the darkness begins to close in around her, Nexi’s magical abilities flourish in response—forcing Nexi to dig down deeper into her past to discover this source and why she was gifted with such incredible strength.

With her Guardian, Kyden by her side, Nexi will meet her greatest challenge yet as she begins to discover that fate might have been a bitch, but she was a bitch with a plan.

My Review
Every book, every adventure, every thrill has led us to this point...the last and absolute best book in the Magical Swords series. Action is amped, the romance is intense, the answers to the many mysteries surrounding Nexi are solved, but not before her world is tested one last time....for now.. Join Nexi, Kyden, and all her friends as they enter the biggest war of their lives. Will they win or will the Otherworld lose, leaving everyone from every realm under the Underworlds control?

Nexi is the Lady of the Underworld...now what. She thought the battle with Magnus would be the biggest battle of her life...boy was she wrong. With Kyden and her friends by her side, she must now get use to her new role as Leader, but what happens when Underworlders refuse to obey her...a whole lot of trouble. If that wasn't enough to fill her day, Nexi's powers are increasing, and her abilities are like nothing anyone has ever seen before. Soon the puzzle pieces are coming together, but can she figure out how to use her powers in time to stop the Underworlders from taking control? It is a race against time as Nexi struggles with her powers, her true identity, and her role as Lady of the Underworld before her world comes crashing down. It is the end and if Nexi cannot pull through, Earth and the Otherworld will be no more.

This is it. Nexi's final hurrah and this is one whirlwind of a book. It ties up every mystery, every cliffhanger, and does so without sacrificing the love, romance, danger, and suspense we love. Be prepared to be on the edge of your seat screaming, crying, laughing and then doing it all over again when you pick up book one to start the series all over again. Trust me, you will reread this series - it is that good. The minute I finished all I wanted to do was reread the series again. It is sad to see Nexi go, but boy does she know how to make an exit. Stacey Kennedy did a great job in building this huge story then tying it all together in such a heart-pumping, temperature-rising, adrenaline-pumping way. READ THIS SERIES!! Trust me, you will be hooked from the start!

This book is rated 5 fangs:
