It is my first time to read a paranormal romance book regarding gargoyles. I tend to read vampires, angels, demons, specters, and some different kinds paranormal romance books. Reading through the book reminds me of the gargoyles cartoon that I used to watch when I was a young child.

Rose, a gargoyle, is on the run from vicious demons who want to murder her for her rich blood. She has no where to go. Her family were brutally murdered long ago. A woman named Gwen took her in and raised her. Rose was told that she is a last gargoyle in the world. Unbeknownst to Rose, her kind are residing in Atlanta, GA. More precisely, she is a Scared Mother gargoyle, which makes her a slightly different from a normal gargoyle.

Cal, a sentinel, who blames himself for failing a mission that he swore on his life to protect. After failing his mission, he pretty much throws his life away until the day Rose stands at his doorstep. His life changes immediately once he lays his eyes on her.

Rose is an annoying character. She has extreme mood swings, which drives me nuts to the point I thought she has a bipolar disorder! Besides, she was too hard on Cal for failing a mission that is out of his control, and it wasn’t his fault because he wasn’t there when a bad incident had occurred. I respect Cal because he was being patient with Rose despite her bitchy attitude towards him. Cal was being reasonable about the circumstance and tried his best to aid everyone as he can while Rose was being a bitch that he didn’t help her first. Come on, woman! Calm your tits!

First of all, there is no sex. Nothing. Nada. Secondly, the book genre is more like science fiction/fantasy/paranormal than romance. I don’t see a lot of romantic scenes in this book that satisfy my thirst! Lastly, no matter how much I really like the plot in this book, but the ending had me WHAT THE FUCK?! I was very disappointed when I’ve reached to the ending of the book.

The book will be published tomorrow (February 23, 2015)

Celeste and Nartan meet each other through their friends, Sabra and Tarak. Celeste’s first impression about Nartan is that he is an control man and a player. He wants sex with no commitment relationship in the mind. She is trying so hard to subsiding her feelings for him, and ignores the obvious passion connects between them. Nartan is an Alpha man, and his bloodline is Apache. He always has sex with women who don’t expect anything from him except pleasure.

Celeste is a divorced woman. She is a succeed lawyer, and possess a black belt in martial arts. She was in a verbal abusive relationship, which makes her push everyone away even her best friend Sabra. Until one day, her husband finally got into the jail, and that’s when she decides it is the best time for filing the divorce papers. Unfortunately, her previous marriage left her scars. Scars cannot be completely healed, but they can be a good reminder who you are today, and what they’ve done to make you stronger.

Nartan is a owner of a restaurant that Celeste frequently attends to because she loves the foods there. Meets Celeste makes him very tempting to claim her, and he cannot refute that there is something between him and Celeste. It was a game changer for him because he always gets what he wants with women without being in a serious relationship, and he loves challenges. Will he succeed?

I like Nartan because he is being honest with himself, and proves himself to be a good man by keeping his promises. I am big on keeping promises. I like it when a person makes a promise and keep it. He may be a player at the first, but he realizes he wants to be tied down. Nartan is a very open-minded person. He really appreciates the life and the essence of life itself.  Of course, It is expected of an Apache man.

I dislike Celeste because she is a judgmental person. She judges Nartan by the looks of him without getting to know more about him. She jumps to conclusions often without analyzing the circumstance first before making bad remarks. Her character is very annoying.

I was interesting in the beginning of the book, but until I’ve arrived in the middle of a book then everything is predictable. I’ve seen this exact pattern before. It is getting old for me. There is nothing exciting in this book except the smutty parts.

I advise you to read “Out of Bounds” before reading this book. It might help you to have more interesting.

The book has been published on Feb 3, 2015

Where The Road Takes Me

Chloe and Blake didn’t meet each other in a typical way like other people tends to meet. You know how the majority of people meets other at the appropriate places like at the mall, the party, getting introduced through friends or family, and etcetera. Chloe is on the verge of getting raped, and Blake just happened to be at the place at a particular time. When Chloe escapes from the predator, she collides with Blake. Is it just me, or the fate pursuits them to fall in love?

Blake and Chloe are raised in a different environment, and yet they can relate what they’ve experienced through their life. They came from a damaged household. However, there is one thing Blake hasn’t experienced as knowing you have unattainable goals.

Throughout their life, they have struggled to overcome and make decisions. Both of them are in their senior year. Of course, A senior year is always busy. Apparently, it is your final step to enter the real world. Chloe and Blake never knew each other until recently, and their relationship has impacted their life, and their perspective about the life itself.

Blake is a intelligent man, but he can be incredibly obtuse sometimes. He can be inconceivably strong when facing with a difficult circumstance. He is very supportive to Chloe, and provides what she needs. It takes a lot of nerve to support a woman you love meanwhile you have a lot on your plate. Considering his age, he is very mature for his age.

Death is no stranger to Chloe and me. I can relate to Chloe, which makes it easier for me to understand her pain. Chloe loses two people she loved, and she pushes people away. She wants to be invisible. It takes one person to make her step away from the walls she builds for a long time.

The first chapter keeps my eyes glued to my Kindle. All I have to say is WOW! This book makes me feel different emotions. I smiled. I laughed. I cried. The cycle of emotions keeps repeating itself. I am very satisfied with the ending of a book. So, be prepared when you read this book! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! This book will be published on Feb 10, 2015.

Searching for a heirloom amulet that had been belonged to his ancestors, Gerard will do anything to get his hands on it even if his action hurts the person he loves. Gerard realizes how huge he has screwed up when it comes to losing the love of his life. Now, he will do anything to get her back.

A revenge is sweet, but, sometimes, a revenge isn’t worth it if you aren’t happy at all. Julianne is furious with Gerard for what he had done to her. Now, he lost her trust. However, did he lose her love? What will he do if another guy comes into the picture? Julianne wants him to taste his own medicine. Will she succeed her revenge plot on Gerard, or will her plot backfired on her?

I despite characters like Gerard. He’s a bastard, and I cannot believe how easily Julianne lets him manipulates her! Yes, Julianne is an obstinate woman, but she gives in too quickly than I originally thought. I wish she could’ve shown some restrictions, so it will be intriguing for me. Julianne is an extraordinary intelligence lady, but her obtuse way of making choices makes me want to put the Kindle down and drink a cup of wine. I believe she could’ve made correct choices if she didn’t let her jealously blinds her perception, but I couldn’t blame her for acting reckless because Gerard betrayed her.

Pardon my bluntness, I don’t like this book at all. The plot isn’t interesting enough for me to continue reading; Nonetheless, I finished the book. The characters are dull, and the plot is uneventful; however, the hot making love parts really get me well, which is the utmost reason why I decide to read continuously.
