"From Victoria Scott, author of FIRE & FLOOD, comes a thrilling story of impossible odds.
Ever since the Titans first appeared in her Detroit neighborhood, Astrid Sullivan’s world has revolved around the mechanical horses. She and her best friend have spent countless hours watching them and their jockeys practice on the track. It’s not just the thrill of the race. It’s the engineering of the horses and the way they’re programmed to seem so lifelike. The Titans are everything that fascinates Astrid, and nothing she’ll ever touch.
She hates them a little, too. Her dad lost everything betting on the Titans. And the races are a reminder of the gap between the rich jockeys who can afford the expensive machines to ride, and the working class friends and neighbors of Astrid’s who wager on them.
But when Astrid’s offered a chance to enter an early model Titan in this year’s derby, well, she decides to risk it all. Because for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, it’s more than a chance at fame or money. Betting on herself is the only way she can see to hang on to everyone in the world she cares about."

Book Review: Halfway To The Grave (Night Huntress #1) by: Jeaniene Frost

Release Date: October 13, 2009 from Harper
Goodreads | Amazon

"Flirting with the Grave...
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father - the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner - are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat."

My Thoughts:

Okay book world I have a bone (ahaha) to pick with you. Look. You’ve been telling me to read this book for years now and for years I have wanted to but just hadn’t made the time for it. Now my question is, why did you slap me silly and MAKE me read it?!?! Gah this book was everything I thought it would be and more. I loved it so much and I’m seriously addicted. Cat is awesome. Bones is made of swoon. I just loved it so much.

Cat is an awesome heroine. She is strong and determined and sassy and I adored her. I loved how she was always right in the action and such a badass character. She was also really funny and I loved her banter with Bones.

Speaking of Bones… man oh man I am in love. I felt my insides melting into goo so many times as I read this one. He is so swoony and charming and I just fell hard. And I love that he lets Cat be Cat. He may be protective and not want her to put herself in danger, but he lets her make her own choices and I loved that. I seriously loved those two together. Their chemistry is off the charts and they are an amazing couple.

Reading this book reminded me how much I love this genre and I really need to start making time to read more books like this. Paranormal books are my first love and this book reminded me why I fell in love with the genre. It’s just so much fun. I also absolutely love vampires. I know people are kinda over them, but I never will be. They are my favorite and will be forever.

I listened to the audio of Halfway To The Grave and Tavia Gilbert did a great job with this one. She is really awesome at doing different voices and accents. I like her narration a lot and she is becoming a favorite of mine.

Halfway To The Grave was a great read and I devoured this book. Bones skyrocketed to the top of my book boyfriends list. After the destruction of Eric Northman’s character (Sookie Stackhouse) and saying goodbye to Shane McAllister (WVMP Radio) I needed a new sexy vamp to love and well…. Bones blew those two out of the water. I can tell this series is going to be a favorite of mine and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Book Review: Every Last Breath (The Dark Elements #3) by: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release Date: July 28, 2105
from Harlequin Teen
Goodreads | Amazon

"Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…"

My Thoughts:

So this review is going to be pretty short and vague because I don’t want to spoil anything about the book and there is a lot that can be spoiled. Every Last Breath was a great conclusion and I devoured it. I read the book straight through because I just couldn’t put it down.

Layla has come such a long way since the first book and I truly love her character growth. She has really come into her own and become such an incredibly strong character. As for Roth and Zayne, well I really love them both so I always knew that this book was going to hurt me because one of them would get left behind. But Layla’s choice felt right and felt like the only way it could have gone. I was really glad that she made her choice so early on because I didn’t think we needed to drag out the drama anymore and I liked seeing the couple in action. And that’s all I’ll say on that.

Of course the story was good and the plot kept me guessing. There were a few twists thrown in that I loved and some that hurt my soul. And the ending isn’t just laid out; the characters have to earn it. I love that things never come easy for JLA’s characters. Her characters have to work for it.

Every Last Breath was a great conclusion and I really loved it. This is definitely one of my favorite series from JLA and I just really love the paranormal books and worlds she continually delivers.
