How do you know where to go when you don't remember where you came from?

Kyla's memory has been erased,

her personality wiped blank,

her memories lost for ever.



Or so she thought.

Kyla shouldn't be able to remember anything. But she can - and she's beginning to realise that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories. When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life, she thinks she's on her way to finding the truth. But the more she learns about her history, the more confusing her future becomes...

Set in a disturbing future world, FRACTURED is an engrossing, fast-paced read that establishes Teri Terry as a master thriller writer.

- Goodreads.com description

You see, there aren't many books in this world that can keep you at the edge of your seat through the whole story. And when I say the whole story, yes, I mean the whole book. I thought Slated was fantastic and amazing, but Teri Terry managed to bring the serie to an even higher level, because Fractured was absolutely phenomenal. 

Kyla. Or I should say Rain? Or even Lucy? Nonetheless, our favourite heroine of the first instalment is back full force. She isn't scared anymore. She may not remember everything, but bits by bits are coming back and she is so strong with dealing with everything around her. She is kick-ass, fierce, powerful and even though she was betrayed by someone close to her, she still doesn't give up and stay strong and fight back.

Ben. Oh, Ben. My heart breaks for you. Truly. He may not have had a big part in this story - though lets face it, he has a big part in Kyla's heart - I have a feeling the 3rd book in the serie won't disappoint us. Kyla is going to figure it out. I am sure of it. 

Anyhow, this book is pure bliss. Amazing action, fast paced setting, believe me when I say you won't be able to put the book down. I know I couldn't. I've read it in almost one sitting (damn my job). It is so compelling that you will lie - about being tired, not answering the phone - just so you could keep reading. 

So, if you read Slated, I dare you to read Fractured, because it won't disappoint you one tiny bit. And if you haven't started this incredible serie yet, then all I can say is.. what are you waiting for? A great dystopia, fast paced, full of action, sweet romance and a main character who struggles with life even though huge pieces of her past are lost, being taken away from her. Teri Terry's world will overtake you. You'll never be the same.

Maybe we can disappear someplace together, someplace the Lorders won't find us.
Like the moon?
I push the doubting voice away, ignore it. Hug this little hope inside and hold it tight.
Without it, I have nothing.

For too long I've been pulled one way, then another; between who I was, and who I am. But who do I want to be?
Who I am now and what I do, now, will be decided by me, and me alone.

Seeing what scared you from what it is does not lessen the terror. It still has the power to break your heart, over and over again.

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa Review

Blood of Eden #2

Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.

- Goodreads.com description

This. This book. God, I hate endings like this. Thought I must admit that rare books leave me sobbing like this. Tears wouldn't come striking down my eyelashes, but God, my eyes were full of them and I was sobbing. How can you build a story like that and then leave me completely shattered and pained so much it literally hurt? This is what the ending of The Eternity Cure feels like.

I loved Allie in The Immortal Rules, but I must admit in this second instalment she rocked as well! She was fierce and powerful and strong and full of courage. Going through all this madness to save Kanin, I must admit was pretty impressive. And pair with Jackal? These two were hilarious. I started to love Jackal in this book quite a lot - he made me laugh my ass off. 

Zeke. Woah, well that was a surprise. Our favourite guy from the first instalment made sure to make an impressive and quite shocking appearance in this one. Haven't seen it coming. But nonetheless, I was so so happy that he did! I missed him. And in this book he is even more strong and composed and totally badass. 

The eternity cure is packed with action. Though, this time around our favourite characters are fighting vampires and other creatures. The rabids are still present, but not really a big threat like they were in the first book. The eternity cure started off a little slow, but the ending sure as hell, made it worth it. And the romance! Definitely the romance.

So, if you still haven't started this awesome vampire serie, I suggest you to do it soon, because it's really, really good. Fast paced, full of action, complicated romance and a question of morality toward humanity and giving in to your inner instincts for blood - The eternity cure will not disappoint you!

"There are no good choices, Allison," Kanin offered in a quiet voice. "There are only those you can live with, and those you can work to change."

I dropped my head into my hands, feeling Zeke's cross press against my skin, and sobbed. For myself, for Zeke, for this stupid, screwed-up world we were born into. For lost chances and unsaid words, and fro the hope that seemed so bright and certain one moment, but so easily snuffed out the next.
Allie. I sobbed right there with you.

When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.

Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t…

Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost…

- Goodreads.com description

True was a good contemporary romance. It's a new adult book, and the romance itself was was written pretty good. The story teach us the importance of true family, that's not necessarily constituted by parents and kids, but kids alone. Especially when parents are addicts or drunks. The kids stick together and they survive and rely on each other.

Rory. I extremely liked Rory. She was an amazing main character and her way of logical thinking was astonishing. I loved it! He scientific master brains were just awesome. For a 20 years old, she was pretty mature and grown up.

Tyler. Your typical bad bad with tattoos. But underneath it all, he was actually a very good guy. He takes care of his brothers the best way he can. And he also takes care for their mother even though she didn't really deserved it. He struggles so much to do the right thing, that I was quite surprised lots of times of how important doing the right thing was to him. Wish there were more people like him in the world. It would make it a better place to live in.

The story was written good, thought I figured I have troubles reading about parents who are addicts and drunks. It just makes me sad, especially when I realise this thing do happen in the world.

So, if you are searching for a good, realistic new adult contemporary romance, True is the perfect book for you! And the main character freaking rocks, so I am pretty sure you are going to like it! ;)

He didn't say anything, but I could see it. That pathetic, hopeless wanting. The desire for what you want but can't have. The need for someone to like you. I recognized it because I saw it in my own face every day.

No one wanted me. But that didn't mean I could be treated like shit. It didn't mean I wasn't a person, that I should toss over my dignity and accept whatever attention I got, no matter how selfish and crude it was.

I sobbed, for the little girl I had been, who had never understood why I didn't just fit in, and for the realisation that I never would. That my life was meant to be walked alone, with a thin plastic barrier taut between my and everyone else, my thoughts never capable of running parallel with the majority of human beings.

Lost. That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her.


But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my story…and even though she acts like she’s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. She’s beautiful, sweet—and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her.

Love her…

If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldn’t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together.

Forever.

For a passion that's
Able to shine like ours
Blessed are we to 
Love 
Each other.

This book!! Oh my fucking god! No exaggerations here, I'm telling you, this book in fucking amazing. Still can't decided which one I liked better the second or the first. But since I've read them both in a row - no sleeping there - they both feel like one book and I love them from the very deep of my heart. This book broke me. And I loved every second of it.

Fable. Well, our Fable is more in this book. I can't really say more responsible - because seriously, she was responsible since she was little, but she has grown a lot as a character and I couldn't help myself but to love her even more.

Drew. Awww, Drew in this second book was even more broken. The way he tried and tried to be the best for Fable, it was just so sweet. And he was so scared of ruining it or screwing it up - adorable. And his poetry!! Oh my god, the poetry he writes is just pure perfection. Wish I was able to write poetry like that. 

The story wasn't so filled with mystery this time around. It was more like Fable and Drew trying to figure a way to overcome the problems and troubles and make it together. And the sex was pure awesomeness ;) The hot scenes were written amazingly.

So, if you have read One Week Girlfriend, I highly suggest you to do it ASAP. And then pick this one up straight ahead. Because it's worth it, so fucking worth it! Second Chance Boyfriend, a beautiful new adult contemporary romance - just what you need right now ;)

Don't give up just because things are hard.

Temporary. That one single word best describes my life these last few years. I’m working at a temporary job until I can finally break free. I’m my little brother’s temporary mother since our mom doesn’t give a crap about either of us. And I’m that temporary girl all the guys want to get with because I give it up so easily. According to the rumors, at least.

But now I’m the temporary girlfriend of Drew Callahan, college football legend and all around golden guy. He’s beautiful, sweet—and he’s hiding way more secrets than I am. He’s brought me into this fake life where everyone seems to hate me. And everyone seems to want something from him. The only thing he seems to want though is…

Me.

I don’t know what to believe anymore. All I know is, I think Drew needs me. And I want to be there for him.

Forever.

- Goodreads.com description

You know that book that gives you a feeling that you need to tell the whole world about it and until the whole world won't read it, you won't really feel satisfied? That's One week girlfriend book. Because really, this book is so incredibly beautiful. I read it through the 24 hour read-a-thon and when I finished I couldn't stop myself and I picked the second book Second chance boyfriend up straight away. They are perfect.

Fable. Awww, Fable is just amazing. She is so strong and fierce and caring and you can't help yourself but love her. She is just so good and she puts others first and she is always trying to help. I admire her a lot. With such circumstances that she grown up with, she turned out as amazingly possible as she could.

Drew. Oh, my broken boy. So strong and so scared. I fell in love with him. I did. I can't possibly imagine what it was like to grow up in a family like that.. That someone could possibly ruin your life like that and on the top of it not feeling any guilt about it - that was just maddening and sad for me. As Nea and as a psychologist. And for him to carry that guilt all by himself, that must be so, so hard.

The story was written so beautifully. I couldn't stop reading it. I read it in one sitting. And it was written from both, Fable and Drew's, point of view, which is something I usually don't particularly like, but this time around it was amazing. I loved both the characters so much.

So, if you are searching for a deep, beautiful, life changing new adult contemporary romance book, One week girlfriend is the perfect book for you! Like I said, until the whole world won't read it, it won't be enough to do this book justice. It's just too perfect.

For once, I want to know what if feels like to be someone's first choice.

Does he ever really allow anyone to touch him? He tends to move through life all by himself.
That realization fills me with sadness. While I allow an endless, faceless stream of guys to touch me. I crave it because for a brief moment, I feel like someone cares about me. The feeling is always fleeting and I end up as empty as I was before. Sometimes even more.

I can't keep living my life like this, letting that - woman control me like she has, but I can't stop my reactions. I need help. I'm a fucking wreck and I need someone to save me before I become completely unsaved.
