Mini Review: Disruption and Corruption by Jessica Shirvington


Disruption by Jessica Shirvington
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Mercer Corporation might rule the world through the control of pheromones. But nothing, and no one, is going to stand in Maggie's way. Especially Quentin Mercer. Ever since the development of M-chips which tap into human pheromones, M-Corp has become the new superpower. Why trust your heart when all you have to do is get within a two-metre radius of someone to record a compatibility rating? Ratings range from the rare 'perfect match' to the dreaded 'negative' and everything in between. Three years ago Maggie's father mysteriously rated as a 'neg' and was taken away from them. For the last two years, eighteen-year-old Maggie has had only one goal: to uncover the truth and bring him home. But even though she's discovered the government's secret underground prison network and the fact that negs aren't going to rehab farms (not even close), she's still no closer to finding her father. Her last hope is Quentin Mercer, her classmate at the elite Kingly Academy - and the heir to the Mercer Corporation. By tricking Quentin into believing he's a 'neg', Maggie quickly gains access to all things M-Corp. But Quentin isn't the person she thought he was... And while she can easily betray her morals in the quest to save her father, can she betray her heart?
Review
I'm so surprised this book isn't more popular. I came across this duology by accident and am very glad I did! My favorite Jessica Shirvington story. Maggie is so strong and determined, yet grows so much during the books.
Quentin! Yup, a sure book boyfriend! There are some very interesting characters too. Lots of plot twists I didn't expect. Five glittery stars for book one!

The thrilling finale to bestselling author Jessica Shirvington's Disruption series.
How do you live with yourself when you've deceived the one you love?
How do you move on when the person you've been fighting to save betrays you?
Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt.
Four weeks ago, Maggie's world fell apart, when she finally found what she'd been looking for. And when Quentin, who had blindly trusted her, unravelled her web of lies.
Now, Maggie lives in the dark. But she's not about to stay there. Not when she still has to bring M-Corp down. Not when there is still a chance she could win him back.
In the exhilarating conclusion to Disruption, Maggie must do whatever it takes to show the world the truth. And the price for her quest?
Everything.
But for who?
Ages 14+
Review
Everything the two books deserve as an ending! The action and romance didn't let up until the very end! I love the cohesion between the characters. I'm really glad I found this duology and don't want to give any spoilers, so five glittery stars!

Waiting on Wednesday-The Luna's Destiny

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m waiting on:

Book: The Luna's Destiny (A Moon Goddess Novel)

Author:  Drea Shane

Release Date: 12/18/2017 

The Luna's Destiny 
A Moon Goddess Novel

My name is Sydney and I’m the Alpha’s daughter. As one of the few remaining female shifters, I find our pack suffocating and overbearing. Eventually, I’ll be the Luna of my own pack once I find my mate.

Keyword: Eventually. Unfortunately for me, Dad’s called Assembly and soon our territory will be swarming with potential Alpha mates. I’d hoped to make it through the final change on my eighteenth birthday before I had to deal with mating.

My birthday signals the blending of my human and wolf souls into one. I’ll finally have access to my full shifter powers. It will also be the night I bond to the mate I have yet to meet.

As if that isn’t enough, a chance encounter with a mysterious and alluring wolf has me questioning everything. Then there’s Joe, Dad’s enforcer and protégé. I can’t figure out why these feelings of desire are cropping up anytime I’m near the pain-in-the-ass shifter. Assembly hasn’t even started, so chaos is sure to ensue.

Then, my dad drops a bombshell, a family secret that turns my world upside down. Nothing for me or the shifter race will ever be the same. It might just take the Moon Goddess herself to get me through this.

* This is the first book in a slow-burn, new adult reverse harem series. *

Okay, shamelessly plugging my own book. BUT, it's selling like CRAZY! Super excited to share with everyone!

Review: The Vixen's Lead

The Vixen's LeadThe Vixen's Lead by Tate James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Description:
I want vengeance so badly that I can almost taste it. It's all I've ever wanted. So, I did what anyone in my unique position would do. I slapped on a secret identity and became an internationally renowned thief, known as The Fox. Nobody knows me. Nobody can catch me.

Or so I thought...

It turns out; I have what they want. Special abilities. And trust me, these abilities are coveted--and dangerous. Now, I don't know who to trust or where to go. Peril lurks on every corner as I try to uncover my past and origin. Teaming up with unlikely allies may be my only chance at survival or my biggest mistake. Only time will tell.

I'm Kit Davenport and this is only the beginning.

** Warning: This book is a Reverse Harem. It also contains violence, sex, bad-language and content which some readers may find triggering. **
 

Review:
Tate James is a new author in a genre that is exploding with popularity. Her voice shines through and is now a must read for any that love the RH genre. The Vixen’s Lead is the first in a series with a sassy heroine, awesome best friend, uncertain past, and smoking hot guys that will make you weak in the knees.
The plot is interesting and I liked the concept of how the surface of the story is dark, a little badass, but the heart of the story turns justified and comforting. And I must say that Kit’s bestie Lucy is an awesome secondary character. Love her!
The guys! Holy hot sauce! I love Wesley most, but River and Caleb are close behind. Wesley is smart and that makes him really sexy. River is just so bossy and dominant. Caleb is kind and caring and a great guy to melt into.
I’m already stoked to read the sequel and her other new co-written book. Five glittery stars for this debut novel!

Review: My Ex From Hell

Description:
Romeo and Juliet had it easy.
Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy teen yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then she meets bad boy Kai and gets the kiss that rocks her world.
Literally.
This breath stealing lip lock reawakens Sophie’s true identity: Persephone, Goddess of Spring. She’s key to saving humanity in the war between the Underworld and Olympus, target numero uno of Hades and Zeus, and totally screwed. All she’s gotta do is master her powers, save the world... 
...and stop kissing Kai, Prince of the Underworld.
My Ex From Hell is a YA romantic comedy, Greek mythology smackdown, perfect for everyone who loves sassy girls that kick butt and the bad boys who infuriate them.
Review:
My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sassy
This book was cute and sassy with a touch of flirty. The main character Sophie aka Persephone is a snarky drama queen with two fabulous best friends. Add high school angst and superpowers of mythical proportions, and you end up with this little gem of a read. Persephone in modern culture, not Ancient Greece. Looking forward to seeing what happens after that epic cliffhanger. Four glittery stars!

Willa Knight: Dweller? Sol? Accidental evolutionary hiccup?

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshipping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules—but none of that matters anymore.
The rules are changing.
The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans.
Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out—until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos. With the Abcurses gone, she’ll have to rely on her wits, and her sister Emmy, to stay under the radar and survive.
Because someone wants her dead.

But, really, what else is new?

This is a full novel, 90,000 words. Book 3 of 5 in the Curse of the Gods Series

What are you waiting on?

After her parents vanished during a job gone bad, Kaia’s spent the last year in hiding, trying to blend in as an ordinary teenager, and there’s no one who makes her feel more normal or more special than her boyfriend, Oliver.

But when she’s jumped by a hit man, and Oliver catches her fighting back, Kaia’s secret is exposed. In a split-second decision, she flees the small town, taking Oliver with her. With professional killers stalking their every move, can Oliver and Kaia protect each other long enough to uncover the mysteries of her past?
Review:
Pretty Fierce by Kieran Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Some thoughts as I read:
"Holy heck this book started off with action and is just getting more interesting! I'm psyched about this book now more than when I got it."
"Still as good as it started. I can't seem to put it down!"
"Intense! So many twists! Oh and I have found my new book boyfriend!!!"
After I finished:
I loved every moment of this book. The plot took me on a wild ride and didn't slow down until the very last page. Kaia and Oliver had so many ups and downs but the love they shared was adorable. This was a fast paced young adult thriller where nothing is as it seemed and everything can change in the blink of an eye.
A must read teen suspense full of action, secrets, family, romance, loyalty and twists. Five glittery stars hands down! A top title for 2017!
