Well .. Schmurrr ! Talking about 'ME' is just so darn difficult . I love reading . And this blog is wholly dedicated to that . As far as my taste in book goes , I love reading NA , dark romances , and a bit of a mix between YA and NA from time to time . I enjoy PNR as well but only when I'm in the mood for it ! Romance is a MUST !
If the book is a guaranteed Mind fuck , then HELL YEAH !
5 'tis buttons are gonna be the death of me' stars !!!
Lynch speared a hand into her hair with a sharp hiss. “I should take my belt to you for this.” He spilled her back into the chair, his body driving hers into the soft cushions. His eyes were black again but she wasn’t afraid. Not this time. She knew exactly what sort of hunger she’d aroused in him.
She was winning.
“Would you like that, my lord?” She arched her back, sliding her hands up his chest.“Would you like me to bend over your desk and remove my drawers?”
He groaned, tilting her head back sharply. “Fuck.” His other fingers traced her lips. “You’ll pay for that. I want to kiss you, Rosa.”
Me thinks that this the best book in the series soo far ! Straight up , no questions asked !
Sir Jasper Lynch has 3 weeks to find Mercury , the leader of a rebellion humanists group hell - bent on overthrowing the blue bloods and royals from ruling people giving the humans their rights , or he will have to take her place and share her punishment ! Mercury a.k.a Rosalind wants to find her brother Jeremy , and the only way she can do it is by joining The Nighthawks and becoming secretary to Jasper Lynch . But how is that possible ?!! You'll just have to read it and find that out !
This was such an whirlwind-ish ride , that I couldn't stop reading it . Sucked in right from Page 1 , the reader is thrown into the turmoil that is Lynch and Rosalind's life . On the professional front , both are too good for their own good . Rosalind is fearless and sassy . While Lynch doesn't know how to give up . But on the personal level , both are lonely and suffering . Trying to forget their past or just coming to terms with guilt , life has always been a struggle for our lead pair .
If there is one thing that I absolutely loved about this story , then it was the way Rosa and Lynch's relationship developed . The sexual tension between these two is evident right from the start , but both have their reasons to not give in . There were some really sweet , some funny and a lot of steamy moments ! McMaster really knows how to seduce her readers !
Bec McMaster's steampunk world is absolutely stunning . Where the first two books were majorly concerned on the ' Whitechapel' part of London , this one dealt with the ongoing's of Echleon city . Oh and also the Undertown , home of the dangerous and criminals !
I don't wanna talk too much and reveal a lot of details , plus there is a lot going on in this book that is wholly connected to the previous ones !
You guys have got to read this series ! Its fuckin awesome !
Given a second chance, music journalist Dawn Emerson and guitarist Sage Knightly are reunited, only to have their lives threatened again by a demonic bargain. The sequel to THE DEVIL’S METAL, from USA Today bestselling author Karina Halle.
When Dawn Emerson got the chance to go on tour with her favorite metal band, Hybrid, she thought she landed the writing gig of the century. But what started off as a dream for the budding music journalist quickly turned into a nightmare that she and guitarist Sage Knightly barely escaped alive.
Now, months after they went their separate ways, Sage invites Dawn to accompany him on his first solo tour across Europe and write about it for Creem Magazine. But like the last tour, nothing is as easy as it seems. Sage is a broken man on the path to self-destruction and Dawn isn’t sure if she’s the right person to save him. And aside from having to pick up the pieces of their burgeoning relationship, they have to negotiate the mysterious new photographer assigned to Dawn’s story, as well as vindictive promoters and demonic groupies they thought they’d never see again.
Because this time, it’s Dawn who made a deal with the devil and the only thing worse than having to uphold a bargain with the prince of darkness is not remembering how you’re supposed to pay it back.
It may be with their souls.
THE DEVIL’S REPRISE is the sequel to THE DEVIL’S METAL and the final book in this series.
It’s been two months since Perry Palomino and Dex Foray’s relationship reached a new turning point, two months since Perry started a new life in Seattle, and two months since their Experiment in Terror show took on a new partner, ex-Wine Babe Rebecca Sims, and found a new level of success. But whenever there is light in their lives, the madness still has a way of coming back in.
When the team is sent back to the stormy Oregon coast to investigate a haunted school, Perry wants to use the opportunity to reconnect with her family and reintroduce Dex into their lives. Only Perry’s not the only one who’s reaching out – her grandmother Pippa has started appearing to her with disturbing warnings and Perry’s presence at the school has ignited a chilling new wave of supernatural phenomenon. Once used a century ago as a sanatorium to house children dying of tuberculosis, the school’s past residents are slowly coming back to life and with one thing on their mind. They want someone to play with, someone to join them. Forever.
Even when dead, some children get whatever they want.
And they want Perry.
“What, then?” I whispered, a harsh inquiry. “Will you lay claim where there is nothing to gain?”
Hawke’s mouth curled up, a cruel edge chiseled in exquisite resolve. “You lie, my lady.”
I winced at the courtesy. “Do I? You’re familiar enough with the precepts of flesh for demand—”
He shifted, and hard fingers bit at my cheeks, silencing my provocation. “Lie to yourself if you must,” he breathed against my lips, “but you will never lie to me.”
This book .... Its ....
Cherry is in a very dark place as we begin our journey into Corroded . Well , after what happened in Gilded , I don't see how anybody would expect something else . With nowhere else to go and constantly taunted by the events that concluded Gilded , Cherry is dead set on revenge . And she doesn't care if she has to end up in that one place that she vowed she'll never be a part of , The Midnight Menagerie ! Walking a fine line between Insanity and Vengeance , Cherry will have to decide what will she keep at stake to get what she wants !
I think Corroded is the best book in the series so far . The first 20% did seem a little too stretchy as Cherry was constantly in her head about how Opium is the answer to every question , a solution for any problem , a medicine for the disease . But as the story gets deeper into Cherry's plan to catch the Ripper and her stalker , it just explodes ! Like , IN YOUR FACE !
Just like how the previous books were divided between Cherry's time in London proper and London below the drift , this book majorly deals with Cherry's time trying to capture the culprits and Cherry's time in the menagerie !
Oh dear lord , that house is freakin crazy !
And speaking of crazy , we have to about Micajah Hawke !
How can my review be complete without him .. :P ...
Now , my biggest peeve about the last book in this series was , how Hawke did not get a lot of screen time .. But here , * fans-self * lets just say that Hawke knows how to turn on the heat ...
Cherry and Hawke's relationship in Corroded is explosive and steamy . But the more I read it , the more I kinda caught myself asking , ' What is it that Hawke exactly feels for her .. ? " . I mean , I understand the Cage does not do , delicate or gentle . But there were instances that I felt that he thinks of Cherry as his prized possession . But then again , there totally came a moment where I just felt that , 'hell no , what the fuck ! ' and I totally went
To sum it all up , I'd say Corroded just takes everything that we know , puts in a grinder and turns into a big mixture of 'WTF' ! I'm pretty sure from here on things are about to get waaay more interesting for Cherry and everybody else ! As always , a lot of questions were answered . The identity of the Stalker collector who made Cherry's life was revealed , and oh my god ! I had a feeling as to who it could be , but I soo didn't want that to be true !
Read this series people , its fuckin amazing !!!
I can't wait to see what's next in this series !
Reading The Cherry St.Croix Chronicle's by Karina Cooper ... Nothing like a Steampunk playlist to listen along ! Nothing says Steampunk better than Abney Park :)
