Not all exorcists are created equal- especially those that are “marked”.
When defrocked ex-priest, Jimmy Holiday, agrees to help an old friend’s sick daughter, Lucy, he unearths unexpected horrors. Blackmoor, his friend’s new residence, has a dark history that makes it appear almost alive. Jimmy must decide if Lucy is only ill, or if the haunting of the house and her apparent possession are real.

After the house begins affecting him as well; seeing colors of magic and his voice taking on an unusual power, Jimmy discovers that he is apparently “marked”. Whatever being “marked” means, Jimmy doesn’t care. He wants to help Lucy. Helping Lucy means performing the exorcism.
Jimmy knows the ceremony, but it’s belief that matters. And if a demon is using a little girl as a meatsuit, his faith had better be strong enough to kick it back to Hell. Otherwise, he might damn them both.



Man was I hooked from the beginning of reading the synopsis for the story and from the first line of the book.

This book is amazing! Oh my Gosh I can not tell you how much I absolutely love this book! I felt like I was watching a horror film as I read this; that was how great it was. I still have the chills since I just finished reading it and currently writing this review. I was scared sh!tless but I still couldn’t put the book down, even during the late hours of the wee night (which is the only time I can really read) and man was it worth it! Heck yea I was scaring myself and being paranoid about seeing and hearing things as I was reading this book and every now a again tried hard not to peek over or to the side as I read. But Gosh it was so Amazing!

As you know from the synopsis, Jimmy Holiday is an ex-priest and has been called on for help by a very long time friend, Will, from his hometown. He agrees to accompany Will to look at Lucy, Will’s daughter,  and see what he can do to help and of course, Jimmy didn’t think it was all that bad until he got to Blackmoor. But soon he called for the aid of his ex-girlfriend to help chip in some magic and strength to his weakening self worth. (Now you see where Jimmy became an ex-priest)

But anyways a whole lot of scary and creepy abnormal occurrences happened and it just grows worse and worse  by the day for little Lucy’s body as her possession carries on. Jimmy haven’t been in service for a while you know and not being able to really trust in the church anymore makes it difficult on his belief on what is really happening to Lucy. He is also frustrated by the fact that he is the only one that is willing to help his friend and Lucy and angry at the church for not helping Lucy when they were contacted earlier. But he’s not giving up on Lucy and is going to make the church listen.

And Jimmy, I can say I worship him! I’m not sure how old he is but maybe in his thirties because I read him as pretty young. But he just has a whole lot of crap in his life and he takes it as it comes. He also has a great personality, in my opinion, and has humor, even in scary situations like this one. I don’t know, I can’t think of the right words to describe him but I just like how he’s very intellectual and thought processy. He likes to think things through and does this “asking question and self answering” thing in his head. Which is great and highly enjoyable for the book.

Oh, and this book is mainly in the POV of Jimmy but does shift to other POVs too for more background information and does jump from past to present in different chapters; which is totally fine because it helps set and tell the story. And it gives the reading a sense of a scary movie feel, to me that is and it just adds to how great this book is in making it scary.

Some things I didn’t like was the repetition of thoughts and saying Jimmy does. I love his thought process but sometime, mostly in the beginning, I just got very annoyed. Like when he didn’t want to believe Lucy’s possessed and was always putting himself down or just being an ass about things. Stuff like being annoyed that he wasn’t kept up to date with Will when he himself didn’t also keep in contact, or being annoyed because of something some one did or because they asked to much questions….stuff like that. And he gets mad but keeps it to himself which is fine but he does do a lot of thinking.

But I love how this book really got my heart pumping in rapids sessions because of my anticipation for what is to come in their trial. You just never know what is coming and you just have to keep on turning the pages even if it’s late.  And this book just makes me feel all sorts of feelings! From giggling to down right scared, to calm and freaking out nervous. But there are also the feeling of pain and hope every time you turn the pages with uncertainty and fear lurking behind.
Gosh this book just had it all and I just got to say the outcome was out of this world…….Agh….I cried but I was happy too. Maybe I was too happy I cried heart…..

I know for sure I’m getting this in paperback, yes sirrah.

I highly Highly Recommend this and it’ll make for a great Halloween read if you don’t have plans for that night.

Five, I give this a Five!

I'm back.....Kind of~

Hello my peeps!  
I'm back to Blogspot. Well not officially back, I'm just back because.....
drum roll....dahhdahhdahhdahh~
My Wordpress blog, the main domain, is suspended!!! SUSPENDED!!!!!! 
Yea I know! AGHH!
So I'm back here although I changed it to only house my reviews, which the other blog do too but it also housed many other things there also. 
I'm so sad it's suspended!!!
And very frustrated and angry. Pluse stress, don't forget stressed.
But most of all...I feel bad for the up coming tours I have on there. I'll probably have to relink them here. 
It's no problem, it's just that my Wordpress is more known for me and has more traffic.
So I'm back to where it all started. 
My blogspot. It does feel nice to be back though. If only for awhile until they tell me otherwise. 
But it's a way to distract me from the other blog and where I can still blog and share so that's good. 
But maybe it's a sign telling me to get back on here as much as I used too??
Maybe...So I'll probably be back here more often then, with posts like this.. LOL
Update: I just got a notice saying my WP is fixed!!! Yay~
But don't worry, I'll be here more often. :D


Review: eARC A Lady’s Secret Weapon by Tracey Devlyn

A Lady’s Secret Weapon (Nexus, #3)A Lady’s Secret Weapon (Nexus, #3)

Tracey Devlyn


Seduction is His Duty to King and Country

Ethan deBeau has charmed his way into the beds of countless women, enticing them to whisper all kinds of state secrets in his ear. But his latest assignment is completely different: find a missing young boy. It’s practically child’s play for a master spy such as Ethan. Until Miss Sydney Hunt threatens to unravel all his carefully laid plans. Who in the world is this woman?

But Tempting Her is All for Pleasure

Sydney has worked hard to maintain a facade of respectability—all while keeping a network of contacts among London’s underground world. When she hears of strange activities at a local home for orphans, she’s determined to find out what’s really going on. Until she runs headlong into a notorious rake eager to expose every inch of her…



OMG!!! This was the last book in Tracey Devlyn’s Nexus series and what an end it was!!!
If you have been tracing this series from book one, with Cora and Helsford, you may have been gearing up for Ethan’s book and of course to who the mysterious Specter was from Somerton’s in book 2. Well your wait is now over~ We find out who this Specter person is and more in this end to a great debut series!

In this book we got a chance to see more of the elusive and protective Ethan deBeau. Though we knew of his “occupation” within the Nexus Spy group we got to really see who he is in this ending. I’ll have to say I really enjoyed reading this side of him and he absolutely had a lot going for him.

Sydney is a proprietress of her own Hunt Agency in which she helps the working class find suitable jobs for their skills and suitable employees for the aristocrat’s home.  But she has many jobs within her own agency and many more secrets to bind to if she wants to keep her agency from crashing and her reputation in tack. But as she got more acquainted with Ethan, to her unwanted desire, it was getting harder to keep her many jobs a secret from him. And since he has claimed to have suspicions about her, which sparked his interest, he’s vowed to keep her by his side and fancy the challenge to break her mold.

I love both these characters and enjoyed knowing their past and their mental thoughts about everyone and everything around them. I found them to be very aware of the people and their surrounding which made them great in their work and I love how they can out wit the other whenever they were around each other. Mostly Sydney is doing all the besting on Ethan, which I loved reading, because Ethan just makes a fool of himself. And of course, it’s great to see a great man in need of help from a lady from time to time. Men can’t do everything on their own and us ladies aren’t damsels in distress who can’t do for themselves, so it was super fabulous that Sydney was a super much needed heroine who can do things on her own and is a super determined, strong, independent, and brave woman!

So I absolutely adored this book. I had no problem at all with it and was super super happy to find out who Specter was! I super had my suspicion and thought it was someone else all together and smiled myself with figuring it out early on in the book but was I wrong! It was totally not a shocker but still it was. But I did surprised myself with the knowledge of Somerton’s and Ethan’s age because I still can’t fathom the fact that Somerton was the guardian and mentor for Ethan and Cora. That is still shocking to me. Aren’t they like, close in age? Somerton, in my mind and eyes, is just too young, too young! Isn’t he? I mean, he’s like a father to them, right! Still shocking.

The only thing that disappointed me was the ending shall I say. There wasn’t exactly an ending to the “mission” which totally disappointed me. I loved the ending to Ethan and Sydney’s relationship but the ending over all was just…. It left me with many unanswered questions and probed more questions as to what happened to this and that…. I was very disappointed, that is unless, it was just the fact that I have an eARC version and not the full edited version; therefore I’ll have to check that out.

But from this ending it did probe the question as too, is this really the end for the series? I really do want a story for that funny witty friend of Ethan’s, the Marquess of Shevington, which we had a great laugh with in parts of the book, mainly the beginning, but still, I really want to see his own book. He is that character I really want to get to know better and from what we got to glimpse from this book, he needs his own story!

Here’s a great clip scene with Shev and Ethan! :

“What the devil is that atrocious noise?”
Ethan cocked his head and listened. “It’s a bird, Shev.”
“Well, make it stop.” His friend rubbed his temple. “All this walking and squinting against the sun has given me a megrim. One more piercing tweet from that feathered beast and my head will splinter in two.”
Waving the Marquess inside, Ethan said, “You’ve been upright too long. Go home and get some sleep before your mother’s dinner party. She won’t be please if you arrive looking like a dissipated sot.”
After Ethan closed the carriage door, Shev nodded towards Somerton House. “There’s a ginger-haired creature bouncing in the window. Good day, Danforth.”
Sure enough, Ethan turned his back on his departing friend and found Sophie Ashcroft jumping up and down and waving at him.
~A Lady’s Secret Weapon; pg. 121

Don’t you just want Shevington to have his own book! Ahh, he is great indeed!

So, this book is just amazing, with spying, some action, more spying, some interrogations and sneaking abound, dark places and tensions…. They’re fabulous!

Review: eARC Risky Surrender by Robin Bielman

Risky Surrender (Take a Risk, #2)

Risky Surrender (Take a Risk #2)

Robin Bielman


Archeologist Lucy Davenport made a promise to retrieve an elusive piece of history buried in the walls of an iconic Indian village. But when she draws unwanted attention that interferes with her secret plans, she’s forced to risk it all with a man who threatens not only her goal, but the walls she’s carefully constructed around her heart.

Keats McCall is an environmental preservationist navigating the globe on behalf of heritage protection. When he catches Lucy at his latest project, he suspects she’s up to something. She’s secretive, sexy as hell—and has trouble written all over her. He devises a plan to keep her close so he can keep an eye on her. But what he isn’t prepared for is just how close he wants to get.



Although this is the second book in the series it can be read as a stand alone and well, I might just have to read the first book because of its loveable characters.

This was a great read and it was a great short read indeed! I think it’s a novella for this whole series but all is great! I absolutely loved Kissing the Maid of Honor and I’m getting into her other book: Yours at Midnight. And absolutely can’t wait for Her Accidental Boyfriend~

So as you read the synopsis Lucy is a solo archaeologist digging up artifacts and is even called a thief for taking historical objects from its home sites. Well, they weren’t uncovered by the Historic Society and so she took it upon herself to find them, so why not take them? But anyways, that’s her job and she’s on her last mission to retrieve a statue she’s promised to find and then move on with her life and no one is going to stop her from finding it! Not even the handsomely rich and all-in-your-business Keats McCall. Well, there’s lots of tension and irritation in between but all is going in a great direction~

McCall is very much into Lucy from his first sight of her at an event out in the open waters. She very much stole his heart and an object she found on the Historic ship they were on! So when they met again he knew what she was up to and he’s got a plan to keep her close to find out what she’s going to steal now besides more of him. And he does it in style of course! Bribing her of a comfortable bed, because she’s a traveler and money is low, but also with some great food. But his intentions are even more risky, making her open up to him and trust him enough to let her treasure hunting days end, and maybe even stay beside him forever.

I really like how we got to see both POVs from these characters. It really made the story great and enjoyable knowing their feelings and intentions. But then it did make matters worse because they kept those thoughts to themselves!!! On the other hand we wouldn’t have all these great sexually driven tensions leading to great explosions~ LOL

But from these POVs, I found I really adore McCall. His thought process is what I really loved about him. He was willing to wait it out with Lucy to tell him her thoughts and reasons as to why she was where she was. Even if he already knew why she was there, he was patient enough to wait her out and trust her. But also at the same time showing her the land and the people that live in the area and convincing her to the importance of preserving historic sites and its treasures. He is just amazing.
But also, since this was a short story the pace for the characters’ development was good. It wasn’t rushed but wasn’t slow either. And of course the relationship development worked well because the tension has been there since their last encounter.
So, this really is a great read. 

If you want to know, this has very hot tensions, a very cold and lonesome archaeologist, a very conversational preservationist being all-in-your business, a lot of disagreeing and pushes and pulling, a small fire that caused a tumble to the ground and some very close action *wink wink*, some sneaking around and digging for treasure, plus some secrets and pain exposed, and dangers abound. Oh, and some high treetop action!
