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).

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.

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?

A Marquis for Mary (Book 5)

Synopsis:

Mary Quinn is almost at the end of her rope. After two years under her sister and brother-in-law’s protection she may soon have to return to her terrible father’s house if she cannot find a husband. In her desperation, she bumps into Edward, Marquis Woodley. Drawn to each other, they are soon thrown into a scandal that leads to an engagement.

But as the pair grow closer and their wedding looms, Woodley’s past and the horrific circumstances of his first wife’s death may keep them from the happy ending that will save them both.

My Review :

Mary is a interesting character. She has a ferocious side but yet she has a innocent side. I can see why she drove Edward mad in love and lust. Mary was struggling in finding a husband that her father clearly pressured her to find a prosperous husband, so he can boast around in the society and being rich by getting money from Mary and her sister, Gemma’s husbands. Edward is a private person, but when it comes to Mary. He doesn’t (pardon my french) gives a fuck if anyone knows his business with Mary.  Yes, he will protect her from any harm that the society may lash out on Mary even the evil twin sisters of his late decreased wife. Edward is a type of man I would approve marrying my daughter.

It was interesting to read from the beginning to the end. It is not a predictable plot which I very much like. It also gives me a hope that a traumatic event can help a person to turn into a better version of himself or herself. I’ve experienced the changes in me when a traumatic event has occurred, and it heavily impacted me and my little sister, but we were able to use the emotions and knowledge from the trauma and turned it into something useful and positive. I am glad that I got to see Edward growing in maturity and self confidence. It is nice to see two person from different upbringings and backgrounds even different titles in the society to fall in love and overcome the obstacles that come in their way. It shows me their love is powerful that nobody can tear them apart. Love shall prevail!

A widow, Angela McClure, picked up a hitchhiking named Troy Whitmore. His handsome face and a hot sizzling body are the utmost reason why she let him get on her truck. She has many wild fantasies about cowboys and hoping Troy will fulfill her fantasies. Troy needs to get to the town called Jackson Hole, but the town is 200 miles away from her home, and there is no way she will drive that far for a stranger. However, he offers her an opportunity that she can’t deny.

Oh my goodness! I like this author because she doesn’t waste time getting to the romance point. She just put all of the delicious smutty parts whenever she can! I mean, the smutty part already starts in chapter 1! And it is getting better in further chapters. The plot keeps getting twisted, and it keeps you guessing. There is a little predictable plot, which I’d prefer. This book has a lot of comic relief combine with tragedy and romance. The author knows how to balance all of three genres in this book.

I like all of the characters in this book, so it is impossible for me to name all of the characters and explain you why I like them because once you read this book, then you will know why I like all of them.

The main character, Angela, is a strong woman, but yet a weak woman. She loses her husband Cody to a sudden death. Her husband’s death had a huge impact on her, but not only her, it had been a quite an impact on her father too, which causes his health deteriorate. Will she fall in love once again after what she went through with her husband’s death? Will Troy make her fall in love with him, or will someone else show up in the picture and take over Troy’s place?

If the author is being like this with her other books, then I’ll read all of her books because this book had me hooked. This book has been published on March 1, 2015.
