On My Shelf: Shift by: Rachel Vincent

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.


I read the first four books in this series and loved them, but then I never picked this one up. I think it's because I know what is coming and I know my heart is not going to handle it well. There is angst and drama and heartache coming and I'm not ready for it.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Add To Goodreads
"Experience the world’s most enchanting and timeless love story—retold with a dark and realistic twist.

A BEAST LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF HIS PAST

Reclusive and severely scarred Prince Adam Delacroix has remained hidden inside a secluded, decrepit castle ever since he witnessed his family’s brutal massacre. Cloaked in shadow, with only the lamentations of past ghosts for company, he has abandoned all hope, allowing the world to believe he died on that tragic eve twenty-five years ago.

A BEAUTY IN PURSUIT OF A BETTER FUTURE

Caught in a fierce snowstorm, beautiful and strong-willed Isabelle Rose seeks shelter at a castle—unaware that its beastly and disfigured master is much more than he appears to be. When he imprisons her gravely ill and blind father, she bravely offers herself in his place.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Stripped of his emotional defenses, Adam’s humanity reawakens as he encounters a kindred soul in Isabelle. Together they will wade through darkness and discover beauty and passion in the most unlikely of places. But when a monster from Isabelle’s former life threatens their new love, Demrov’s forgotten prince must emerge from his shadows and face the world once more…

Perfect for fans of Beauty and the Beast and The Phantom of the Opera, Beauty of the Beast brings a familiar and well-loved fairy tale to life with a rich setting in the kingdom of Demrov and a captivating, Gothic voice.

Disclaimer: This is an edgy retelling of the classic fairy tale. Due to strong sexual content, profanity, and dark subject matter, including an instance of sexual assault committed by the villain, Beauty of the Beast is not intended for readers under the age of 18." 

I am copying my Wifey once again... she featured this last week and I immediately got all grabby hands over it. WANT!

Beauty Of The Beast will be released on March 15, 2017.
What are you waiting on?

Book Review: Midnight Action (Killer Instincts #5) by: Elle Kennedy

Release Date: November 4, 2014
from Signet
Goodreads | Amazon

"She’s got a broken heart...
and a fully loaded arsenal....

Ex–army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but eighteen years ago in Paris, he was part of a black ops unit whose mission was to hunt down a rogue operative. In order to trap the criminal, Jim seduced Noelle, the man’s daughter—a ruthless act that cost him the love of his life and turned her into a mortal enemy. Now he can’t trust her, but he still desires her. He also needs her help....

Older, wiser, and unwilling to play the fool again, Noelle runs a group of highly skilled assassins. And she’s just been offered the hit of the century: Eliminate Jim Morgan. History gives them no reason to trust each other, but with their lives in jeopardy at the hands of a common enemy, the lines between love and hate are soon blurred. Now Noelle and Jim must face the past if they want to have a future—let alone a future together."

My Thoughts:

I will never get over how insanely addictive this series is. I’m going to be honest here, Noelle and Jim have never been my favorite characters, so I went into this one fully expecting to enjoy it but prepared not to love it as much as the rest of the series. Welp I was wrong. This one turned out to be one of my favorites. It’s probably only beat out by Midnight Captive and Midnight Games. This book was just crazy addictive.

Like I said, Noelle and Jim were never my favorites (and honestly there are still other characters I love more) but holy crap their chemistry is off the charts. There is a fine line between love and hate and Jim and Noelle constantly straddle that line. Their past is full of hurt and betrayal, but despite all that they are clearly drawn to one another and as a reader you want them to make it work so badly. This was one of the few times where I really doubted if they could make it work. It just seemed so unlikely but I wanted it so damn badly and that made the story so much sweeter. And the chemistry was just insane. There was so much tension between Jim and Noelle and it made their scenes explosive.

What also made this book addictive was the suspense angle. This story had so many twists and turns and I loved watching it all play out. I also loved finally finding out what went down with Noelle and Jim all those years ago. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and turning pages because I had to get my answers.

Of course this series wouldn’t be what it is without the secondary characters. I loved that this one had a decent amount of Sean time because he is my favorite. And I loved seeing Bailey too because she is awesome. Of course Sully and Liam and their entire story has me captivated. I love those two hard. I also love our new rookie Ash and Cate is another wonderful addition. I just love every single character.

Midnight Action was a crazy addictive read and now that I’m all caught up to where I originally started the series I’m at a loss. I never want this series to end. Seriously I want to put this book in everyone’s hands. Don’t miss this series.

On My Shelf: Love Unrehearsed by: Tina Reber

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.


I read Love Unscripted years ago and I really enjoyed the story but I thought it was a bit too long so I didn't feel the need to dive into the sequel immediately. Then of course I just never got around to the sequel. I think I'm still interested to see how it all wraps up, but I may need a refresher on book one. 

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?
