Review Of Heart Ache (Bound By A Touch Book #1) By Morgan Kearns

Heart Ache (Bound by a Touch #1)
Heart Ache (Bound By A Touch Book #1) By Morgan Kearns


One Touch

Gabrielle Ryan felt an electric attraction to her new employer the first time he reached out and shook her hand. She dreams of him, fantasizes about him, but all Nikolai wants is an assistant—and to Gabby’s chagrin, it’s not to assist him with taking off his pants!

One Beat

An ache has inhabited Nikolai Voinea’s chest for the last four hundred years. Yet stubbornly resolute not to repeat his father’s mistakes, Nikolai refuses to take the one female who is his heart’s greatest desire.

Captures His Heart Forever

When murder charges make Gabby second guess everything she knows about him, she’s hurt and angry and determined to walk away. But Nikolai’s just as determined to do everything within his power to keep her.

Morgan has another great book on her hands. I LOVE Vampires and I so LOVE Nikolai. Morgan introduces a new aspect to her Vampire's that I was really intrigued with. Her Vampire's are not part of the usually cookie cutter variety, which gets her high marks for originality.

Heart Ache is about two people Gabrielle Ryan and her boss Nikolai Voinea who are desperately attracted to one another but are too stubborn to tell one another. Gabby doesn't want to be accused of throwing herself at her boss and Niko doesn't want to interfere with Gabby's free will. You would think that would be a big enough situation to deal with but Morgan ALWAYS knows how to keep you on your toes. Enter Gabrielle's fiancĂ©e Jayson McDade and Nikolai's ex-girlfriend Natasha. The introduction of these two characters bring about great conflict for all parties involved. And that's what I love about Morgan, she always makes her characters work for their happily ever after. Nothing ever comes easy and the journey always has a price.

There is so much I haven't said but that would give away all the great parts of this story. Heart Ache is one of those stories that touches a part of you and makes you appreciate the little things in life. On a scale from 1-10 I give Heart Ache a big 10. This was a great Vampire love story with a different twist. If you are looking for true love, Vampires, danger, and a story that keeps you on your toes then Heart Ache is the book for you. I eagerly await book 2 in this series. Everyone adult 18+ (there are a few parts that might be a little to intense for some) should pick up a copy of Heart Ache and let Gabrielle and Nikolai's journey bind you to them.

Review Of The Dirt By Lori Culwell

The Dirt
The Dirt By Lori Culwell

Lucy Whitley cannot wait to get out of Palm Desert. It's not a place for a frizzy-haired science nerd, particularly when her fashion-obsessed older sister Sloane is the head of a clique of pretty girls who rule the school -- and practically the whole town. Fortunately, life is about to change forever. Lucy's dad is getting re-married, and then she can transfer to a boarding school in Connecticut, escaping all the mean girls and the endless whispers about the Whitley family scandal. Everything is going to be perfect -- as long as the wedding goes smoothly.

I highly enjoyed reading The Dirt By Lori Culwell. She wrote a great story about a family of four sister's from the perspective of one of them Luck Whitley. It captured my attention from the very first page which actually consisted of e-mails between the family. I enjoyed that because it made the book somehow more real if that makes sense.

Lucy Whitley is the nerdy sister of the group. She has a low opinion of herself because she feels her sister Sloane it the "pretty" sister. Her sister belongs to a super secret society of girls called the Pretty Girls or PG for short. Therefore her sister is a raging terror in and out of school. Lucy has two best friends Finch and Dylan. They are more like sister's then friends and they vow to never be PG (even if anyone would actually ask them....lol).

At the start of this book they are getting ready to go to the wedding of their father and his girlfriend Lisa. Lisa seems to be the typical soon-to-be stepmother. She would like to erase all signs of a family before she got their and create her new starter family. Although Lucy doesn't really want her dad to marry Lisa she supports him in the hopes of going to a boarding school in Connecticut called Darlington. Lucy feels this is the best way to escape her sister Sloane, being teased at school and the whole "Whitney Family Scandal". But something happens at the wedding that turns Lucy's whole world upside down.

I would really love to tell you more BUT I feel you need to read what happens at the wedding for you to really enjoy what goes on in the rest of the story. This book kind of reminded me of the Lindsay Lohan movie Mean Girls (LOVED that movie). If all Lori's books are as great as this one sign me up to read them all. On a scale from 1-10 I give The Dirt a big 10. If you are looking for a great story with radically different siblings, a fast paced story, "mean girl" type antics, and of course a great guy you MUST READ The Dirt. Everyone needs to go out right now and pick themselves up a copy and learn what it really means to be a Whitney.

Nara Collins is an average sixteen-year-old, with one exception: every night she dreams the events of the following day. Due to an incident in her past, Nara avoids using her special gift to change fate...until she dreams a future she can't ignore.

After Nara prevents a bombing at Blue Ridge High, her ability to see the future starts to fade, while people at school are suddenly being injured at an unusually high rate.

Grappling with her diminishing powers and the need to prevent another disaster, Nara meets Ethan Harris, a mysterious loner who seems to understand her better than anyone. Ethan and Nara forge an irresistible connection, but as their relationship heats up, so do her questions about his dark past.

Author's note: Brightest Kind of Darkness is a dark paranormal novel length YA full of mystery, adventure, romance, and even a touch of horror. It's best suited for ages 14 and up.

This book was fantastic. I was literally up all night and didn't go to bed til 9AM because I just couldn't put this book down. P.T. did an amazing job with the characters and the whole story line. It had me hook, line, and sinker.

Inara (Nara or Nari) Collins has a rather unusual life which, gets even more stranger the day she prevents a bombing at her school. That one deed starts a chain reaction that even Nara herself couldn't see coming. But in doing so, it also puts her into the path of Ethan, a relatively new kid at her school.

Ethan Harris has his own issues and an air of dark mystery surrounding him. Ethan prefers to be alone and to shut out everyone around him.When he bumps into Nara he realizes she may be the one person who can save him from all the bad things he has going on in his life.

This month I have read a slew of books which simply took my breath away and Brightest Kind Of Darkness was one of them. Whether I went from wanting to scream at Nara to not go against what must be to complete and utter shock at what has just transpired, this book kept me on my toes and at the edge of my seat. In some ways this book reminded me of the movie Final Destination (which I loved by the way) but with new and exciting twists and turns. I don't want to give too much of the story away for fear of ruining it's otherworldly goodness. On a scale from 1-10 I give Brightest Kind Of Darkness an earth shattering 20. December has been the month for books breaking my scale. This book is just such a phenomenally, fantastic thrill ride. If you love people with supernatural gifts, two somewhat tortured souls finding each other, teenage angst,  or a good ole' paranormal book than Brightest Kind  Of Darkness is a book you need to pick up. The only thing negative I would say is that the book ended too sudden for me. When I started reading this book I had no idea it was book 1 of a series so I was total expecting a resolution BUT with that being said I SO CAN NOT WAIT to read book 2 in this series. EVERYONE needs to run out and pick up this book.
