Wicked Destiny

Wicked Destiny, Wicked Witch Book One is the first in the newest series by L.C. Hibbett. This book takes place in Ireland, someplace I would love to see myself.  A nice addition to this book one is the prequel.  I much preferred this as I didn’t have to hunt down a different anthology looking for the why for this book.

Wicked Destiny follows Destiny O’Neill on the run and in hiding with her aunt and her young daughter, Saoirse, from her father Balor, an actual god.  Destiny works in The Paper Heart, Galway’s coffee shop and gallery.  She has been hiding out for three years after taking off after realizing she no longer wanted to be a weapon for her father.  Destiny is a bit different, she is a black witch having power over life and death.  She has been told so many times that nine out of ten black witches go bad, and she wants to be the exception.

Briar: A Reverse Harem Romance

Briar: A Reverse Harem Romance (Midnight's Crown Book 1) by [Proserpina, Ripley]After seeing a few posts on Facebook about this new release, I decided to check it out for myself.  Briar: A Reverse Harem Romance, the first in the Midnight’s Crown Series is not your average romance.  The main character Briar is not the leggy, perfect woman often seen in books.  Briar would most likely consider herself average, though she feels throughout the book that she is some kind of a freak.  The main factor that makes Briar so different from every other MC is that she suffers from a life threatening and debilitating condition.  Strange for a main character to not be perfect right, but it makes Briar more real than most.  Briar suffers from EPP or Erythropoietic Protoporphyria.  If you would like to learn more about this disorder check out the link here.  A summation is that Briar is essentially allergic to the sun and has to keep her skin covered at all times to prevent horrible burns and blisters.  This is in fact a real disorder not anything that should be considered fiction.  But back to the story.  Briar is getting ready to attend Boston College (love their hockey team) to work on her graduate degree.

Four Psychos

51aVeCT1h-LFour Psychos, The Dark Side Book 1 by Kristy Cunning, pen name of C.M Owens.
Is a Reverse Harem with a slight twist.

Idonea: And if you don’t want to know this twist, stop reading this review.
Amanda: And start reading the book, it is great.

While many books start off with a less heavy intro, Four Psychos takes it to another level. Four beautiful men, one woman having a good night though in the case of Four Psychos, not the main character. She is there, to watch, like a creepier.

I: I’m writing this with an evil smile on my face, I know what happens. And believe me I still look good with that evil smile. GO and read the book.Read More »

Persuasion

persuasionThe second book in the Curse of the Gods series by Jane Washington and Jaymin Eve brings even more trouble Willa´s way.

Amanda: If you haven’t checked out the first book make sure that you do to truly know what is going on.
Idonea: And stop reading here, because of small spoilers.

Book two, Persuasion, sees Willa still having her soul split between the five men in her life. Coen capable of Pain and Passion (when needed), Rome having true Strength, Aros true in the art of Seduction, Yael powers over Persuasion and Siret master of Trickery.
Throughout this book, as with the first, Willa is unable to keep herself out of running into Chaos and triggering her “Curse”. Not only the Chaos that is created by Chaos, Rau, also her being linked to the brothers, which is something not everyone likes. So she finds herself in more trouble than normal.

I: And with normal we mean not really normal, what is normal for a girl with a clumsy curse?

And to make all the chaos complete she finds herself called to participate yet again in the Arena of the Sols. Luckily she has her Boys around her, even when she gets into more trouble than before, some of it shows up right at her own front door or in this case the boy’s doors.
Not only the boy’s get to see the chaos evolve, Emmy her pseudo-sister gets to see how much more it has changed.
