{Arc Review} Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.
Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.

My Review:

I really do enjoy reading Riley Sager books so much. He is known to have such amazing twists in his mystery/thrillers books. He is one of my favorite adult books reader.

This book start out at the fancy, hotel. Where the celebrities and the rich stay.

For Jules it was her big break to start over, she becomes an apartment sitter. Pretty simple enough, live in a very nice apartment and follow some strange rules for three months. Jules even try to make friend with a fellow apartment sitter. But her new friend disappear, then things don’t seem right at home. What dark secrets lurking behind the walls of Bartholomew?

This book is slow start, but picks up pretty good in the middle. I did have fun guessing throughout the book. The twist at the end, was shocking crazy. That you must read for yourself. If your in mood for an good mystery then check Lock Every Door on July 2.

Happy Reading!!!!

Here is Riley Sager. I met him at book expo.

Storm and Fury by Jennifer L Armentrout

Book Summary:
Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.
When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed…

My Review:

Storm and Fury was such a awesome spin off to The Dark Elements series. You don’t have to read the dark elements to enjoy this book. If your interested in reading The dark elements series, the series starts with White Hot Kis, Cold Stone Touch and Every Last Breathe. I reviewed books 1 & 2 of the books on here.

Storm and Fury set in the dark elements world with some new characters and fun cameos from the book. Which I did love so much. Even I connected with the new characters in the books.

Trinity acts all human, but deep down she is something different. Only a few people in the warden home knows her secret. She may be going blind, but she can kick any demon or warden butt. Once Zayne visit the clan, her life gets turn upside. Something is killing demon s and wadens a like. Will Trinity be any use and can help Zayne out?

This book is a face pace read. I had trouble putting it until it was finish. I love the world building to it. It was fun watching Trinity and Zayne interact with each other also. This book has everything from magical creatures just about. Looking for something new to read, then this book might be for you.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} The Haunted by Danielle Vega

Book Summary:
From Danielle Vega, YA’s answer to Stephen King, comes a new paranormal novel about dark family secrets, deep-seated vengeance, and the horrifying truth that evil often lurks in the unlikeliest of places.
Hendricks Becker-O’Malley is new in town, and she’s bringing baggage with her. With a dark and wild past, Hendricks doesn’t think the small town her parents moved her to has much to offer her in terms of excitement. She plans on laying low, but when she’s suddenly welcomed into the popular crowd at school, things don’t go as expected.
Hendricks learns from her new friends that the fixer-upper her parents are so excited about is notorious in town. Local legend says it’s haunted. Hendricks doesn’t believe it. Until she’s forced to. Blood-curdling screams erupt from the basement, her little brother wakes up covered in scratches, and something, or someone pushes her dad down the stairs. With help from the mysterious boy next door, Hendricks makes it her mission to take down the ghosts . . . if they don’t take her first.

My Review:

What goes bump in the night at Steele House?

Hendricks about to the learn that something scary lives in her new home. When she starts a new life, she did not mean being a part of a ghost story. Being the new girl is hard as it is, also dealing with stress from the past. With so much going on, is she really loosing her mind, or something evil is in her new home?

This book was a fast pace read. It leaves you on the edge of the seat. You will questioning what real or not. Only you must read and find the answers yourself. Be warn you might be spending time with lights on after reading this book. This book was recently release, so enjoy.

Happy Reading!

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L Armentrout

Book Summary:
Every touch has its price
Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

My Review:

Stone Cold Touch is the second book of The Dark Elements series. This first book is call, White Hot Kiss. Which I have recently review. If you have yet read the first book or neither of these books, you may skip reading review.

The book picks up where book one left off. Roth is trap in hell and Layla life must go on. She grows closer now to Zanye and her powers may be changing also. Her classmates are acting out and strange accidents happening around her. When Roth comes back into her life, she wonders what’s wrong with her. Could a strange new being at fault or could Layla slowly becoming a demon?

This book is more action pack like the first one. It very hard to choose with boy to fall for, Zanye or Roth. I’m mostly team Bambi the snake, which I have fallen in love with. The book has some new creatures in it. If you have yet read this series, then you need to check it out.

Happy Reading!!!

Ask Me Anything by Molly E. Lee

Book Summary:
I should’ve kept my mouth shut.
But Wilmont Academy’s been living in the Dark Ages when it comes to sex ed, and someone had to take matters into her own hands. Well, I’m a kickass coder, so I created a totally anonymous, totally untraceable blog where teens can come to get real, honest, nothing-is-off-limits sex advice.
And holy hell, the site went viral overnight. Who knew this school was so hard up.
Now the school administration is on a war path to shut me down, and they have Dean—my coding crush—hot on my trail. If he discovers my secret, I could lose his trust forever. And thousands of teens who need real advice won’t have anyone to turn to.
Ask me anything…except how to make things right.

My Review:

Ask Me Anything was such a cute read. The story was fun and loved the characters in it. Perfect for any fiction readers.

Amber and Dean are the best hackers around. When a prank goes wrong, they are blame for it. Now throw into a club with just the two of them. They both place a bet who can piss off the principal first without telling each other what they planning. What could go wrong?

This book was a fast read and I love the chemistry between Dean and Amber have for each other. I like the idea of Ask Me Anything site where teens or whoever feel comfortable talking about stuff they can’t with their parents. Wish we had that back in my day. Looking for a new read, then check out Ask Me Anything.

Happy Reading!!!!

An Affair of Poisons by Addie Thorley

Book Summary:
No one looks kindly on the killer of a king.
After unwittingly helping her mother poison King Louis XIV, seventeen-year-old alchemist Mirabelle Monvoisin is forced to see her mother’s Shadow Society in a horrifying new light: they’re not heroes of the people, as they’ve always claimed to be, but murderers. Herself included. Mira tries to ease her guilt by brewing helpful curatives, but her hunger tonics and headache remedies cannot right past wrongs or save the dissenters her mother vows to purge.
Royal bastard Josse de Bourbon is more kitchen boy than fils de France. But when the Shadow Society assassinates the Sun King and half of the royal court, he must become the prince he was never meant to be in order to save his injured sisters and the petulant dauphin. Forced to hide in the sewers beneath the city, Josse’s hope of reclaiming Paris seems impossible―until his path collides with Mirabelle’s.
She’s a deadly poisoner. He’s a bastard prince. They are sworn enemies, yet they form a tenuous pact to unite the commoners and former nobility against the Shadow Society. But can a rebellion built on mistrust ever hope to succeed?

My Review:

An Affair of Poisons is a prefect stand alone read. I do enjoy the fantasy world of it and the characters in it.

Mirabelle is skill making poisons and playing with the art of alchemy. She unknowingly kill the king, thanks to her mother. Now not liking what her mother stands for, she runs away. While she runs off, she bumps into unlikely allie. Will she be able to fix all the pain she done?

Josse is the bastard son of the king. He would do anything to keep his family safe. Now that the royal kid in hiding, it’s up him to run back and forth in town for food and stuff. Bumping into Merabelle may be his ticket to save the kingdom. Can he really trust her?

This book was fast pace and full of action. It has magical elements, and little romance. Looking for a new fantasy book without worrying on cliffhangers, then check out this standalone read.

Happy Reading!!!

Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan

Book Summary:
Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:
* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.
* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.
* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.
* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.

My Review:

This book is the prefect summer read. I really enjoyed Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan so much.

The setting takes place at the fair, with cute guys, and hanging with best friends all summer long. What could go wrong for Elouise? Well the fair closing next year and the boy she likes is dating someone else. With a little plotting and scheming, can Elouise have the perfect summer or will it all fall a part?

This book was quick read with some laughs and fun. So get ready to enjoy the summer feeling book, with little romance and lots of pool side fun.

Happy Reading!!!
