Synopsis:

Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e., murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.

My Review:

OKAY! This is my first time reading a weirdest, romance book ever. This book reminds me of the movie, Ghost in 1990. Charley actually fucked a ghost. There, I said it. Yes, Charley had a sex with a ghost which was a coma patient. You may call it out of the body experience. I am into paranormal romance; however, this is my first book about ghosts. That’s not all. A ghost that Charley fucked is actually a son of the Devil. Perhaps I should call him a “Incubus.” the plot was thrilled and interesting. It is unpredictable which I very much prefer. I like the characters especially Charley. She embraced her gift and made it useful to find the bad guys. Without her gift, she would be boring. However, there is one thing I don’t like about this book because I have to read more books to know how developing the relationship between Charley and the ghost.

Chasing Eva

Synopsis:

After living through her share of disloyal relationships, Evangeline Avery will be damned if she lets another man cheat her. A beautiful and confident woman, Eva is the owner of an interior design firm at the brink of collapse. She swears to bring her company back to its past glory, even if it involves sweet talking the one man who caused this turmoil in the first place – Clive Stanton.

Notorious playboy Clive Stanton is a powerful businessman and a formidable enemy of many. He doesn’t do love, or at least not until he meets her again, fifteen years after he saw her last. Eva, his crush from teenage years, the one that got away, is back in his world and he is determined to do anything to make her his.

Will passion and lust bring them together or conflict and unforgettable scars from their pasts forever tear them apart?

My Review:

This book is alright. I don’t really like the characters in the book. Yes, even the main characters. Firstly, Eva totally let Chris walk over her. In my opinion, Chris is a manipulator because he always find a way to get what he wants without respecting Eva. He fucked constantly in this book and didn’t even apologize to Eva. He apologized that it has occurred; however, he didn’t apologized for his actions and Eva readily accepted him back which is pretty stupid in my opinion. At the beginning, Eva was a strong, obstinate woman and she became fragile at the end which I very much dislike. There is another reason why I dislike the book is because you have to read more books in order to know what happened to the characters.

The Wicked Vampire by Kate Baxter

The Wicked Vampire (Book 6)

By Kate Baxter

*Copy received courtesy of NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Synopsis:

He was one of the most feared creatures in the supernatural world, and yet, she was drawn to him unlike any other. His scent ignited her thirst. The sight of him drove her mad with want…

Lovers forever—or enemies to the death?

Sasha Ivanov was born to be wild. A vampire party girl, she stalks the L.A. clubs at night. Dancing. Drinking. Indulging her darkest appetites. Never sated, she’s always looking for more: more danger, more excitement, more blood. But when she enters a supernatural fight club—and is tethered to her mortal enemy—Sasha realizes she’s playing the most dangerous game of all…

Ewan Brún was born to kill vampires. A powerful berserker and unbeaten champion, he doesn’t need a weapon to be deadly. He is the weapon. But when his soul becomes captive to the most beautiful vampire he’s ever seen, he is all but powerless. He cannot resist Sasha—and cannot fight his desires. Is their love strong enough to defeat the gathering forces of darkness that threatens to destroy them both?

My Review:

This isn’t my first time reviewing a book written by Kate Baxter. So, this book didn’t disappointed me at all. In fact, this book is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I didn’t even read all of the series. The sex was hot! I mean, hot, hot and HOT!! Yes, there is a lot of smut in this book that got me going! Excuse me, I gotta calm my horny ass down.

I’ve been imagined myself as Sasha in the book because our name is similar except a different letter in the beginning of our name. I think I have a crush on Sasha, perhaps, I need to some soul searching because I think I may be bisexual. HAHA, just kidding. However, I am not lying about having a crush on Sasha. Sasha is one of these women who don’t take any shit from anyone else. Sasha has a strong feminine character which I like because a strong character draws me in and give me possibilities to relate with a character. She got her heartbroken by a coven leader and decided to do something about it by finding a distraction. In a battle arena, she found a perfect distraction or should I say a distraction finds its way to Sasha?

Ewan!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS (biting my bottom lip)!!! Is there anyone like Ewan exists out there? He’s a McDreamy. He is not even close to perfect, but goddamn, he can mindfucked me really good!! Or is it Kate Baxter who is mindfucking me? Again with soul searching LOL. He is a man, who knows what he wants and gets it. No one gets in his way or they will die. There’s no another way around it, period.  Both of them aren’t supposed to be together. In fact, berserkers and vampires are sworn enemies. However, it didn’t stop Ewan and Sasha from falling in love with each other (or have a lot of earth shattering sex, forgive me and my dirty mind).

The Wolf and the Butterfly

Synopsis: Nika, the pack’s newest scout, wants nothing more than to please his Alpha. When he discovers a beautiful, and very sick, stranger in the woods outside Los Lobos, he finds himself torn between his duty and his hormones. The stranger carries a deadly wolf virus—one that hasn’t been seen in the Black Hills in ages.

Kimi, a Lakota Sioux, is dying. She’s transported herself forward in time, hoping to find the cure to the illness that’s stricken her tribe. Her only chance for survival is to trust Nika, even if she’s not used to having help.

To find the cure and save the pack, Nika and Kimi must travel to a time long ago—before the Lakota populated the Black Hills—a time filled with dangers neither can imagine. Their growing attraction may save them, or kill them both

My Review: Romance paranormal books is one of my favorite genre books; however, this book disappointed me because it doesn’t contain a lot of smut. There are some cute scenes, but not hot steamy enough for me.  The connection between Kimi and Nika was awkward but both of them know deep down that they are the one for each other which is known as an “imprinting” which is pretty much common in paranormal world just like The Twilight Saga. It is a good book, but it is not a good “romance” book. There is one thing about this book that I like: unpredictable.

Synopsis:

When the most difficult decision of Laurie Baker’s life needed to be made, she took off for a weekend alone to weigh her pros and cons and consider all her options.

What she didn’t expect was to run face first into one more complication her life didn’t need.

Distracting, sexy, and British, Liam Parker offered Laurie exactly what she needed when she was desperate for attention.

One night of pleasure.

She wanted it.

She craved it.

She took it.

And when the sunlight dawned and the lusty haze of one night of passion disappeared and reality revealed itself…

Laurie returned home knowing that everything she had once believed, everything she had once loved and desired, was about to be tossed upside down and shaken in a way she could never imagine.

My Review:

Laurie’s world crumbled when she caught his husband cheating on her with her best friend from high school. She needs to get out of the house to breathe because the thoughts of her husband being with her best friend suffocated her; luckily, she needs to attend a conference for 3 days in Chicago which is 5 hours drive from her home. She promised herself that she will think about whether to save the marriage or not. However, there is a hot guy named Liam shook her world enough that she didn’t have enough time to think about her marriage.

I like the length of this book. Everything was well thought out. There is no loopholes that needs to be fill; however, to know how the ending goes, you have to read all of the series which I dislike very much. I like to read series when it comes with different characters in other book because there’s no chance of cliff hanging! So, there is definitely a cliff hanging at the end of this book.

I can imagine divorced women relating to this book. There are a lot of mixed emotions in this book about dissolving the marriage. There are laughs, tears, and heartbreaking moments. I love the chemistry between Laurie and Liam; however, I am not going to read the series.

One More Shot (Book 1)

Synopsis:  Drafted by the NHL at eighteen, Jordan Garrison was headed for fame, and there was only one person he wanted to share it with-Jessie Caplan. He was crazy in love with her, and had finally told her so. They shared an amazing night . . . and then everything fell apart.

Jessie tries not to think about the night she gave herself to Jordan-or how he broke her heart. She tries not to think about it, but she does. Especially now, when she’s staring into his sky-blue eyes for the first time in six years. After so much time and torment, she can’t tell if she loves him or hates him. But Jordan has learned enough to know a connection like theirs is rare. He was lucky to find Jessie once. No way will he lose her again.

My Review: All I can say is WOW. This book is a mixture of drama, hot steamy sex, and heartbreaking. It comes in a cycle from making up, arguing, causing drama, revenges, confessions, and sex.  The drama from high school continues for 6 years into the adulthood which is a little extreme for me, but I liked it. The whole point of this book is basically about two person, who are madly in love with each other, running away from each other because they were afraid of one reason, rejection. They hurt each other intentionally and intentionally which is immature in my book; however, it is what the author wrote, so be it.

Jessie has two protective sisters who want nothing but best for their older sister, Jessie. However, they’ve done some damages with the relationship between Jessie and Jordan, but it didn’t stop Jessie and Jordan from being in love with each other. Jordan has two goofy brothers who are always on his side and encourage him to win Jessie’s love. No thanks to them because Jordan, as always as he is, doesn’t listen to his brothers which made things even more worse because he cannot put his ego aside. He fucked up constantly due to jealously, egoism, and possessive. Apparently, his skills in bed makes it up for Jessie ( LOL ). This book isn’t boring and predictable.  I believe this book is good for the current generation because a lot of people from the current generation can relate a lot with this book.

Stripped Bear (Book 0.5)

By Kate Baxter

*Copy received courtesy of NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Synopsis:

Caden Mitchell is the ultimate alpha. Known to most as a smoldering hot billionaire, his secret weapon- the ability to shapeshift into a strong and deadly bear- allows him to be the most ruthless enforcer of the Sotari, a paranormal organization tasked with keeping the course of Fate on the right track. But when the ailing health of his grandmother leads him back home, the luscious curves of his childhood nemesis will be too much to resist…

Leah Ridgeway never expected Caden to give her the time of day. With his abs cut from stone and powerful, strong arms, she knows there’s no chance he’s interested in her handful of curves. But Caden is tormented by thoughts of her beautiful body. And when evil threatens Leah’s very life, Caden will stop at nothing to keep her safe…and claim her as his mate…

My Review:

Okay, I will admit that the only reason I want to read this book is because of the hot guy on the book cover that got me drooling. Yes…Shame on me… Haha, just kidding. I really liked this book and what’s more, it has series! who doesn’t love the book series? I love the book series because I can become attached to some minor characters in the book and get to read about them in the other books. I love to see minor characters’ growth and learned more about them.

Caden and Leah had a fallout. It is not really a fallout because they were never being in a relationship. Leah had a one- sided crush on Caden, but to be unbeknownst to Leah, Caden has feelings for her. However, the time wasn’t right because Leah was young and Caden had a lot of experiences in the world that Leah hasn’t seen what the world can offer her. He thought it was an simply act of protection for her; however, it broke Leah’s heart. They haven’t meet each other for a long time until a circumstance that force both of them to meet.

It’s undeniably that both of them knew that there’s a spark between both of them when they laid their eyes on each other after not seeing each other for a long time. Leah is engaged and Caden isn’t going to let the wedding to stop his feelings for her, so he kidnapped her in the process to prove his love to her and will she accept?
