Book Review: A Perfect Blood

           Today's review is on A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison

It's hard to believe that I have now read all 10 of the books in this amazing series. Though there were a few that I felt were a bit below the mark for Harrison, this one, as well as most of the others hit the nail right on the head.

This continuing saga between good and evil isn't always black and white. Especially when it comes to Rachel and Trent. And it seems that these two star-crossed "lovers" can never get a break. You know you want them together, and you know that they would be great together, but there is always something in the way, and in this book it's no different.

The radial group HAPA wants to eradicate all of the supernaturals. Now they have begun using magic themselves, and are kidnapping witches with the Rosewood virus in their blood. They want to use it to make their own demon. But so far they haven't had any luck. All they have been able to do is turn their prisoners into a sort of goat like creature before they die and agonizing death.

Rachel realizes that her friends are moving on with their lives and "leaving her behind" thinking that she will be left all alone. But she cannot dwell on that. She has "bad guys" to catch. And though she is trying to work with both the FBI and IS, she finds that there is only one person she can really trust. Trent.

Since getting his daughter back, Rachel has noticed a change in Trent. A change that she really likes. But can these two bridge the gap between them? Will they come out of this case alive? Only one of these questions will be answered in A Perfect Blood, the other will have to wait for the next book. I hope that the answer is what I want it to be!!

Another fantastic hit!!

Book Review: The Party Crasher

                Today's review is on Party Crasher by April Angel

I haven't really read many erotic books that have a fantastic story, but Party Crasher has just that. A budding love story that spans years is about to come into full bloom, and we all know that I adore stories of unrequited love that suddenly comes true.

Christine "Chris" has known Drex Callum for most of her life and she's had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. Now that she's an adult she pushes those feelings deep inside her and thinks that she's over him. Now if only her body thought that too.

Drex has been waiting on the sidelines, admiring Chris for years as well. But whereas she was "jail bait" as a teen, she has blossomed into a beautiful woman and there's nothing to hold him back now. Or is there?

Wanting to get the inside scoop on the Seduction Party that Drex holds every year for her article, Chris comes up with a plan. She'll sneak into the party with her stolen invitation. Once in side however she realizes that Drex may have been right when he told her that the party was "not the kind of thing she should be going to."

This short 72 page book is written so well that it seemed to fly by. It has sex, danger, and love. I'm looking forward to seeing what else this author has in store.

She crashed his party and became his prize…

According to one annoying Drex Callum, Chris is a “nosy reporter.” And maybe she is. She’s heard of the super secretive event known as the Seduction Party, and she won’t be content until she finds a way in. The last thing she expects to find is that Drex is the host. She’ll never get an invitation from her nemesis—unless she finds a way to get one herself. And breaking into his house is nothing if it means getting the scoop. But what she gets instead is an eye-full of the man himself, half-naked and more than she’d ever dreamed he could be in all her teenage fantasies.

Drex has been fantasizing about Chris forever, and now that she’s a grown woman, he still has a hard time treating her like one. So when she shows up at the Seduction Party—on the auction chair!—he’s got no other choice but to teach that nosey woman a lesson. He never dreamed sex could be like this, with Chris in his room, tied to a bed, asking him for stuff that blows his mind…

But when things turn ugly, it becomes clear that someone wants the nosey reporter dead. And Drex will have his hands full trying to keep his prize safe…

Excerpt 2:
Chris was ready to kill somebody, preferably one Drex Callum. He’d made it a point to ignore all her calls for help. She’d twice sent a man to find him and all he’d said was, “Mr. Callum apologizes, but he is busy at this time.” What the hell was his problem with her? He knew she was there and now some guy had bought her for the night. But he had looked so sexy in the tux. The tight points of her nipples ached and swelled. Disgust over her body’s reaction to him made her growl.
She was tied to a bed for fuck’s sake. On the positive side, at least they hadn’t stripped her of the tiny dress and her legs were still free.
The sound of the door opening had her jerking her gaze to the entrance. There, looking so good it should be illegal, was Drex, and he was smiling at her.
“Oh, thank God it’s you. Hurry up and get me loose before whoever bought me gets here.” Alarm filled her. She hadn’t finished speaking, and he was already shaking his head in a negative.
“You know I can’t do that. We have rules here. I told you not to come tonight. Told you not to do anything you’d regret.” He smiled, locked the door, and then removed his tux jacket.
As usual, temper got the best of her. “I don’t regret coming, you dick. What I regret is thinking you were here to offer some kind of help. So…what? Are you just going to leave me tied here for some jerk to try and fuck me? At the mercy of the sick bastard who bought me?”
Was it wrong to wish he hadn’t noticed how hard her nipples had gotten as soon as he’d walked in the door? Fire shot through her veins at his proprietary look. He raked his gaze up and down her body before fastening on to hers.
“Hmm, yes. I think I will.” While watching her, he took off his cuff links and dropped them on the dresser.
Lust shot straight to her cunt. “What…what are you doing?”
He formed his lips into a feral grin. “Undressing.” He popped open buttons and slid the white shirt off to reveal his wide, powerful chest. He shifted, his muscles flexing under his smooth bronzed skin. Her fingers itched to touch. He threw his shirt to the side, which left his top half fully revealed.
Moisture pooled in her pussy. “What…why?”
Heat pricked under her skin. Her gaze drifted to his waist, where he was unbuckling his belt. She gulped and looked up at him. He twisted his lips into a devilish grin. “I’m the sick bastard who bought you and the jerk who is going to fuck you.”
Well, damn. Never in her wildest dreams had she ever come up with this scenario. Sure, back when she’d been a teenager she’d had a stupid crush on Drex, but then he’d turned into a jerk and she’d quickly gotten over it. Now though, he was not acting the jerk. In fact, every deliberate move he made only enticed her to want to know what else he planned to do.
Excitement hurled through her body. “Don’t be stupid. You don’t even like me. Quit messing around and let me loose.” The words ended in a small whimper as he continued to strip. Her body hummed in need the moment his pants came off. Arousal slapped her in the gut when she saw his long, thick erection pointing straight up.
He strolled to the bed. His muscular, powerful legs flexed with each stride. There didn’t seem to be a single ounce of fat anywhere on him. Unbidden thoughts of checking out his ass made her crane her neck to the side.
“I never said I didn’t like you.” He trailed his long fingers up her foot, calf, and higher to her thigh with every step he took, “In fact, I want you. Have wanted you for a long time. More than want you.”
Shivers crawled up her spine. She whimpered softly. “Don’t tease.”
He hovered above her, only inches from her face. Rugged masculinity oozed from him. “I plan to do a lot more than just tease you.”
A quick flutter of their lips was her first taste of him. Looking for a deeper touch, she lifted her head off the bed, but he moved his lips to nuzzle her neck. Her lids dropped as his warm mouth trailed up her ear.
“I’m going to fuck you for all the times I’ve wanted to but didn’t. Fuck you until I am the only man your body recognizes.”
She moaned as his words turned into images of their twined bodies in her head.
He licked the shell of her ear, twirling his wicked tongue in circles. “Do you want me to? Want me to fill you until you can’t see straight?”
For the first time since she’d been an infatuated teenager, she wanted to be his. Past her lips before her brain had enough time to stop it, she groaned the answer. “Yes, please…I want you.”
