Hosted By: Romance Addict Book Blog -

Meet Liv and Danny…

Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her, so she lets him go without a fight when his parents make him move back to America. She knows she will never love anyone like she loved him, but she has to move on.

Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him, because she does nothing to get him to stay, so he goes quietly when his parents leave the UK. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her, but he has to move on.

Twelve years on, they have made a good job of pretending, they may have almost forgotten. But when they get in touch via Facebook, it seems that it is all still there. They quickly find that they are intensely compatible in ways they hadn’t even begun to explore before they were forced apart. 

Can they put aside their fears and give it a go? Or will deep rooted doubts and insecurities tear them apart?

Author Bio
'I am what I am,' as the song goes. 'I don't want praise, I don't want pity. I bang my own drum, some think its a noise, I think its pretty. So what if I love each sparkle and each bangle. why not see things from a different angle? Your life is a shame 'til you can shout out, I am what I am."

So here goes...I'm Kerry, I live with my family outside London. I am married to the love of my life and we have two amazing, beautiful children and a nutball Boston terrier, called Betty. 

I graduated from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design with a degree in Fashion. I realized straight away that the industry wasn't for me, so I've been creatively frustrated ever since. I have tried a bit of everything to satisfy my need for a creative outlet. Nothing keeps me happy for long. Until I discovered writing. Writing a book has always been a dream, but I had no clue where to start. Then one day, parking my car at the supermarket, Liv & Danny came to me like a thunderbolt. I don't know where they came from, but I raced home and started making them real. Now I have two books to publish and lots more ideas to work on.

I am extremely prone to crushes on boys in books...on trains, in the street, wherever. From my early infatuation with Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing and Tom Cruise in Cocktail, to my recent obsessions with book-boyfriends like Christian Grey, Travis Maddox and Kellan Kyle, I have always been the same. For the time it takes me to read a book I have an intense love affair with the characters, sometimes they stay with me for a week, sometimes its for life. Sometimes I feel like I will need therapy to cope with the fact that they are not real and will never be mine! Even though I am devoted to my husband, I'll never change, not as long as brilliant, creative writers keep giving me deeply flawed, yet perfect men to love...
I hope, I dream, that these are the types of characters I can one day create to be obsessed over.

Taking Chances by Molly McAdams
Review by Amber Presley Boyd


Where to start…Ok so I’d had Taking Chances on my to be read list for a while after it was recommended on my Nook. I had also seen some negative ratings other places, but when I read the summary I just knew I needed to read this story. And now I know that others should read it too!

The synopsis tells you this is a story about growing up, finding yourself, and finding love. Ok, that sounds promising right?  But I have to say, I thought it was so much more than that; it is definitely about love, but also so much about forgiveness and second chances and finding that connection with others that makes you whole.

Harper is an overly sheltered 18 yr. old, leaving her marine father’s home to start college on the other side of the country. Growing up with a father that prefers she call him ‘Sir’ and a bunch of jarheads, she’s ready to live life on her own terms. She has a great new roommate, Breanna, that is all the things she wants to be, and who helps her start her college experience off with a new wardrobe and a party. Enter Chase Grayson, her roommate’s impossibly handsome and impossibly arrogant brother. Harper is instantly attracted and instantly disgusted.  Really, Chase is totally beautiful but Harper knows that he’s a ‘man whore’ and that totally turns her off. But at the same time she can’t stop watching him and thinking about him, wanting to be with him. Though Chase is completely captivated at first sight by Harper, he plays it cool referring to her as “Princess” and doing everything to turn her off. Chase doesn’t do relationships and he knows from the outset that as much as he wants Harper, she deserves better than he can give her. Enter Chase’s best friend Brandon.  Where Chase is overtly tatted up and looks like a surfer dude with his shaggy hair, Brandon is muscles everywhere, clean cut and stunning.

“Dear God, and I’d thought Chase was the most attractive guy I’d ever seen. This guy was…..just wow”

Brandon is just as taken with Harper as Chase is, and Chase sees it happen. Though he tries to discourage the connection, he can’t stop it. Brandon and Harper are soon an item to Chase’s chagrin. Fighting between the guys ensues as Chase begins to act like a total douche, saying hurtful things to Harper.  Harper is quickly realizing that she loves them both, though she is trying hard to fight what she feels for Chase.

Harper is innocent, in every way. She doesn’t see her beauty. Doesn’t see the impact she has on others. She doesn’t feel connected to anyone but a bunch of jarheads until she meets Breanna, Chase, and Brandon. I loved how Harper quickly begins to see how her ‘family’ was not the norm, that she could feel loved both by these 2 amazing guys as well as creating her own adopted family in the Grayson's.  I loved the support that Chase and Breanna’s parents gave to Harper immediately. I loved their Sunday Family days and how Harper got to see who Chase really was in these “few stolen hours”.

When Chase and Harper finally get together it is both beautiful and tragic. Tragic because she loves both Chase and Brandon; she fears being left, fears hurting one or both of them as well as herself.  I felt for Harper so much because I loved her with both of these guys in such different ways. Harper and Chase were just this perfect connection; passionate and all-consuming love. But because of Chase’s past history with girls, Harper always feared being left and devastated by Chase. With Brandon, you knew from the beginning that he would do anything for her; even stepping aside to let her and Chase be together if that would ultimately make her happy.

This book definitely took me on an emotional roller coaster.  I laughed. I cried. I feared. I empathized. I hoped. This was without a doubt a 5+ star read for me. I have read other ratings that were negative, but honestly if you read book, even if you didn’t like the path it took, you had to realize the story was about Harper. Molly McAdams writes this brilliantly in my opinion. It’s about Harper learning to trust, to love, to grow and to survive all that life throws at her. And really, isn’t that what we are all doing? Or at least trying to do?

Jenn reviews Entwined With You by Sylvia Day

Jenn Donald's review:

Once again I am rating this series with 5+ stars. I love Gideon and Eva and I will shout it from mountaintops, tall buildings or anywhere else someone will let me speak. Sylvia Day has done it again, completely capturing my heart with her writing. I truly loved every single minute of this book, every single one!

I have to say that I had high expectations going into it since I have been crazy in love with the series so far, and it did not disappoint.

Their story picks up right where we left off in Reflected In You (thank you for that Sylvia Day!). Eva and Gideon are trying to pick up the pieces of their relationship after Nathan’s murder and find their path.

The love that is between Eva and Gideon is so powerful it takes my breath away! These two are just meant to be together, like there is some force that has brought them together and will keep them together no matter what challenges they have to face. I think that’s one of my favorite things about these two, they fight through it all together, even when they don’t realize that is what they are doing.

Their crazy passion for each other continues to burn red hot in this book too! They are struggling with external issues that threaten their relationship as well as their internal demons that they continue to deal with.

“He was all things to me, everything I wanted and needed in one imperfect man.” ~Eva

I loved the continued growth we see in Gideon in this book. I really felt like I learned so much more about him, and his love and pure need for Eva.  Gideon has changed from the playboy, walking sex god we first met into such a complicated and beautiful man. He is that perfect damaged, tortured alpha male and yet he is vulnerable in a way that just squeezes your heart and steals your breath. He has come to understand his need for Eva and that is not just about great sex but a love so deep he can’t live without it.

“You’ll never lose me, angel,” he vowed. Wherever you go, however far, I’ll be right there with you.” ~Gideon

Since the very beginning I admired Eva’s strength, she is definitely a tough woman who won’t put up with shit from anyone, including Gideon. She stands up to him when needed but also knows when he needs the softness and love from her. She has her own issues to face in this book with her family, Cary and those around her and she works so hard to get through them even when she’s ready to break.

I also loved the continued stories of many of the other characters in the series. The depth of the other characters makes the story feel whole.

I was thrilled with the end of this book, although I was practically jumping up and down when I found out that this is not the end of their story (Squeeee)! I’m so excited to see where Sylvia Day will take them next because it so clearly NOT over! These characters still continue to grow and learn from each other.

Another heart squeezing, scorching hot book from Sylvia Day that I will re-read over and over again. This isn’t a simple love story, but a journey of two people finding love and hope and learning how accept it from each other.

“It’d been that way with us from the very first meeting, both of us inexorably drawn together. We’d mistaken our ferocious mutual captivation for lust until we realized we couldn’t breathe without each other.” ~ Eva

This is Jenn's Gideon Cross, her Dark & Dangerous. (And may I say, WOW!)

A Story of the Vampire Warrior Kings
Henrik Magnusson is supposed to be immortal, but a mysterious ailment leaves the vampire king near death, and not even the blood of the Proffered, human virgins trained to serve the elite, can sustain him. Then he rescues a beautiful young woman from his enemies, and is filled with blood lust and desire he hasn't felt for centuries.
Photographer Kaira Sorenson's life takes a nightmare turn when she's attacked by blood-thirsty creatures—and saved by a vampire. She should be afraid of Henrik, but she can't deny her intense attraction to this regal, enigmatic being—nor the fact that her blood may be his only salvation. Now she must decide if she's willing to be his forever…
Releases August 1, 2013
Pre-Order Links:
Henrik’s back slammed against a brick wall, the darkness of the narrow alley sheltering their trio from the tourists thronging Tromsø’s streets.
Lars stood at the entrance, making sure no one developed an unhealthy curiosity.
Jakob got right up in Henrik’s face, forearm pressing into the king’s chest. “What happened?”
He shook his head, swallowing thickly, his hunger burning so intensely it was almost a living thing within him. “Wanted her,” he rasped. It hadn’t been a decision. There wasn’t anything rational or conscious about it. From the first moment she’d approached him, he was awash in her appealing scent, like the smoky berries of a vintage wine or the rich bite of an aged, dignified whiskey.
“Wanted her how?”
“I wanted her.” He knocked his head against the brick. Even now, he couldn’t shake the image of the vein’s rhythmic dance along her slender neck or of the luscious dip of her cleavage, both displayed so invitingly by her upswept hair. His fangs throbbed with a want and a need he couldn’t remember feeling in ages. Not to mention the aching hard-on between his legs.
“Straight out no-shit bloodlust?” Something like hope sounded in the warrior’s deep voice.
“Ja.” Henrik heaved a deep breath of cold January air as his imagination unhelpfully replayed how it would’ve gone down. Tearing the gown from her trim body. Holding her curves in his hands. Bearing her up against the wall. Sinking his fangs and his cock in deep until every dark, needy part of him was sated.
“I’ll get her.” Jakob turned away.
The king slammed his hand down on his brother’s shoulder and gripped hard. “Nei.”
“You want her. You need her.”
“I’ll kill her.”
Because he wouldn’t be able to stop.
Once he got a taste, something base and instinctual told him he wouldn’t be able to make himself stop. He’d been so close to the edge of his restraint in the gallery. Only the sound of her voice had pulled him back from the brink.
All he’d wanted was a night out of their mountain citadel, away from the looming promise of death. He thought the jovial atmosphere of the festival would distract him from all that was to come. Instead, it had thrown it right in his face. Christ, he was a catastrophe waiting to happen, already more beast than man. He shook his head again. “I’ll fucking kill her,” he rasped.
“You won’t.”
Acid washed through his gut. “You willing to risk an innocent woman’s life—or her soul—to see which of us is right? I’m not.” He shuddered, the danger of becoming like his evil enemies one of his greatest fears. “Leave her be. I’ll not have it any other way.”
