Review: Hear No by Lizzy Ford

25 decembrie 0 Comments
It's only the end of the world ... Nathan's job for the past three thousand years has been to clean up supernatural messes. Jaded, ruthlessly effective and selfless, he's seen it all and can handle anything - demons, homicidal angels, even bad bosses. His latest challenge: A creature named Shadowman is seeking out the three keys it believes will open portals between earth and hell. Nathan must eliminate the human host guiding Shadowman to the keys. Except Nathan isn't expecting the woman anchoring Shadowman to the human world to be beautiful, witty, innocent and completely unaware of the creature manipulating her. Worse, she makes him feel alive for the first time in his long existence, and he haphazardly discovers she's meant to become the love of his life. Life becomes more complicated when Nathan helps rescue one of the key holders, a deaf girl charged with protecting the secret of who Shadowman really is: the first of four demons headed to the human world, intent on bringing about the Apocalypse. They will succeed, unless Nathan kills the woman he loves, and sends the demon back to Hell.



Reading a Lizzy Ford book is always a pleasant experience and the greatest thing about it is that right from the start you know what you are going to read: soulmates who have trouble accepting their predestined supernatural bond, that go through extreme lengths to try and deny their feelings, face dangerous situations and battle with evil forces only to end up together at the end of the book or series. It's a cliche and it shouldn't work, right? Wrong...

Life is so harsh sometimes and things don't always turn out the way you want them to. So when I feel like it doesn't make any sense anymore, a Lizzy Ford book can always make me want to go back and fight. For my dreams, for my happiness... the hope sweet love is just around the corner. Because once in a while, you need to escape reality and remember good things only come if you fight and fight and fight. Just like Lizzy's couples do.

In Hear No we get to read about humans, guardians, angels and demons and a fight against the evil of Shadowman, a fallen Guardian whose host is Kaylee, a kind woman who finds herself in the middle of chaos, confused about everything that is happening to her. And of course nobody will explain anything to her. Why would they, when the only chance to defeat Shadowman is if they kill her first? Or is it? Nathan is supposed to end her life to save the rest of humanity, but it's kind of hard to do that when he feels so attracted to her in an unexplainable way.

My favourite part about this book was the sweet romance that just begins to bloom between Amira and Troy, the first one a reincarnated first generation Angel, and the latter Nathan's mentor. I would've given this book a 5 vanilla flower rating if not for the underexplained supernatural world. I have to say though that I just love the covers and titles of the books in the series and I can't wait for the next installment to come out.


Best Books I Read in 2013

25 decembrie 0 Comments
With only one week left of 2013 (which was a pretty lazy blogging year for me, yeah...), I thought I could at least make a top with the best books I had the chance of reading this year.
But before I do that, I must apologize again for my lack of activity, reminding you this was my last year of highschool and the beggining of my first one at college. Things should go back to normal though after February, so stay tunned and be patient with me, guys. I WILL not give up so easilly. :)
Without any further bla-blas (I'm sure most of you skip this part anyway and just look at the covers hehe), here's my top 2013 books. Remember, books I read in 2013, NOT necessarilly published in 2013.

15 noiembrie 0 Comments

Hi! Welcome to In My Mailbox and Stacking the Shelves, the weekly memes where I show you what books I bought and received lately. To find official information like how to participate or why it was started, check the official IMM page and STS page!

Sorry for not posting so much these weeks, I've been very busy getting used to college plus I had some personal problems I needed to fix. I will try to post more often from now on. I hope you understand sometimes "life happens" and it prevents us from doing what we would like most. I have some reviews to write too, so I should start from there. But now it's time to see what books I got over these weeks - because I can't stop buying books even if I don't have the time to read them. :P

Bought in paperback

For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.
At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.
The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.
Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.
