Mini Review: Cauldron Bubble

Cauldron Bubble Cauldron Bubble by Wendy Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Description:
“You’ve just always been the powerful one. I’m the smart aleck.”  
“We’re the same. I’m night, you’re day. You have to have both to have life.”  
“You can hide in the shadows.”  
“And you can shine like the sun. This prophesy is about both of us.”  

Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids. 
So they can buy more shoes. 
But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks—warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father. 
Oh, and Quin. 
Quin, who's the son of a witch, only tolerating Destiny's presence because she can save his mother. Except along the way, that all changes, and he realizes Destiny is everything he never knew he wanted. The only problem is she thinks if love can be made from a potion, it can't be a real thing. 
If they survive this, he's going to prove her wrong. 

Review:
This made a great start to a new young adult paranormal romance trilogy. I enjoyed getting to know the sisters. Fate and Destiny made great family and their mom too. I'm dying to know more about Fate and her boyfriend Damien. Book 2 is focused on them I believe.
Destiny and Quin were fun characters. I love the whole hate/chemistry they had going on. Oh and the class Chemistry as well. Fun stuff. Prophecies are always interesting and the villain is not surprising but good at being a villain for sure. Overall, Cauldron Bubble gets four glittery stars!

Mini Review: To the Stars

To the Stars To the Stars by Molly McAdams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Description:
In the second book in New York Times  and USA Today  bestselling author Molly McAdams’ Thatch series, Knox Alexander must convince his long-time love Harlow Evans that they’re meant to be together.

He promised to wait for her.
She told him he was wasting his time.
Not waiting for him ended up being the biggest mistake of her life.

When they were younger, Knox Alexander swore to Harlow Evans that he would wait for her to turn eighteen so they could be together. But that was three and a half years away, and Harlow couldn’t ask him to give up all the fun and thrills of going away to college for her. As the years passed, Knox remained a constant in her life—whether she liked it or not—but when her eighteenth birthday came around, Harlow’s heart belonged to someone else.

Every day for the last four years, Harlow has been haunted by that fateful choice. And though he may appear unaffected by what happened in their past, Knox has always tried to fill the void Harlow left. But when he comes stumbling back into her life and refuses to leave, will Harlow finally let him into her heart…?

Review:
Another Molly McAdams classic! I'm loving the Thatch series! Knox and Harlow=AWESOMENESS!
If you've never read anything by this author, you NEED to! She is the Nicholas Sparks of the college and twenties generations. BUT, bring the tissues, because you are in for one hell of the roller coaster ride!
A master at contemporary romance, this book met all of my expectations and more. Don't want to spoil all the twists, give this five star highly recommended book a read!

Mini Review: Accidental Sire
























Accidental Sire by Molly Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In Molly Harper's newest paranormal romantic comedy, Ben, Gigi's old boyfriend, must find a way to save his new love after a freak Ultimate Frisbee accident. But will she want to live after she finds out how Ben had to save her?

In this exciting addition to Molly Harper’s beloved Half-Moon Hollow series, the focus is on Gigi’s ex-boyfriend Ben. When his new girlfriend is killed in a freak Ultimate Frisbee accident, he’s determined to save her, no matter the cost, even if it means bringing her into the darkness of vampire life!
 

Review:
Even though this is the 14th book in the series, I still can't get enough of Half-Moon Hollow! The characters are quirky and well fleshed out. Each story adds to the series and examines a character as they fall in love. This installment centers on Ben!!! He finally gets his own happy ending. We meet Meagan, who opens a whole new can of worms on the vampire council. Suddenly, Jane has her hands full yet again, trying to navigate a messy situation with Ben and Meagan. Accidental Sire is funny, romantic, and heartwarming as new family members join. Five glittery stars for this new series addition!

Mini Review: Swords & Stilettos


Swords & Stilettos by Kristin D. Van Risseghem
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Zoe Jabril needs to devise a kick-ass plan to save the world ASAP. Otherwise, Armageddon starts the day she turns eighteen—and if that happens, everything is going to hell. Literally.

She could be any other 17-year-old attending parties and checking out cute guys—except she discovers her best friend is a Guardian Angel and the boy she crushes on is a Nephilim, both sent to protect her from the demons who want her dead.

Now Zoe has to deal with growing feelings toward the Nephilim, who spreads a strange electrical current through her body every time he touches her. And she’s under constant attack from Demons, trying to stop her from fulfilling the Prophecy: a girl will be born who will unite Angels, Nephilim, Fairies and Werewolves to battle evil. Then she has to control newly found talents if she’s to prevent the devil from escaping Hell.

** This title used to be called: The Guardian, a Sword, & Stilettos. **



Review:
