Title: Brokenly Found
Series: Faith#2
Author: Nikki Bolvair
Rating: 

Faith Iris Daniels or Daniels for short, had a shot at a real home life. Ahead in school, out of foster care and moved to a new town she thought she could start over, but when the past catches up with her and the feeling of being unwanted surfaces she does the only thing she feels she does best. She runs. 
Making the decision to go back to her hometown before anyone could send her there themselves, she realizes that she had made a big mistake. 

**** 

I felt groggy as fingers tightened on mine. "Daniels, please baby, wake up." A rough voice whispered. I opened my eyes to midnight blue ones. They were red and puffy as if he had been crying. 

He swept back my hair and let out a relief chuckle when he saw that my eyes had opened. "It's about time you woke up, baby." He leaned over to kiss my forehead and my lips. 

I pulled back confused. I took my hand from his and leaned away. 

His brows dipped. "Daniels?" 

I was scared. "Who are you?” 

    

Brokenly Found begins right after the first book ends. Daniels is running from the things she's learned, but she never imagined getting into an accident trying to get away, but that's what happens. Now, she's having problems remembering things, and she's unsure how to proceed with the information she learned, and with her guys. 

But, they won't let her give up and run, and her foster parents won't let her run either. She must now stand up for what she knows and believes before it is too late. 

This book was really good! I enjoyed it a lot more than the first one, and I was super excited about the progress that was made between Daniels and her guys. 
The plot line also hooked me and wouldn't let me go until the end. 

However, the only downside was the ending, and the fact that I must wait to read the next book! I'm super excited to read it though.

Title: Magic Binds
Series: Kate Daniels #9
Author: Ilona Andrews
Rating: 

Mercenary Kate Daniels knows all too well that magic in post-Shift Atlanta is a dangerous business. But nothing she’s faced could have prepared her for this…

Kate and the former Beast Lord Curran Lennart are finally making their relationship official. But there are some steep obstacles standing in the way of their walk to the altar…

Kate’s father, Roland, has kidnapped the demigod Saiman and is slowly bleeding him dry in his never-ending bid for power. A Witch Oracle has predicted that if Kate marries the man she loves, Atlanta will burn and she will lose him forever. And the only person Kate can ask for help is long dead.

The odds are impossible. The future is grim. But Kate Daniels has never been one to play by the rules…

    

Kate is having a little trouble with her magic, and the fact that she took over the city. Something keeps pushing her to fight with her "father." But, she doesn't know what and she knows that's a horrible idea until she can kill him. However, when he starts pushing the boundaries, she must do what she can to stop it before it's too late. 

This was really good. I loved the whole plot line, and the fact that Kate was having a hard time dealing with things, and I'm also excited about the future between Curran and Kate. I'm super excited to see what happens next, and that ending was crazy. I can't believe it ended like that. 

Now, I need the next book asap!

Title: Splitting Seconds
Series: Songbird Series #2
Author: J.C. Matheny
Rating: 

For seventeen year old Melody Williams, life can be described in seconds. Once second she is a daughter, a grand daughter, loved, safe, the next second she is homeless, orphaned and running from those who wish to exploit her. Another second later, she is hit by a car and she somehow becomes a part of a unique family of young men, who just happen to be the one of the hottest singing groups in the world. Issac, Tyler, Jesse, Tristan and their manager Damon, become her entire world, offering her family, friendship, hope for a future career and above all, safety. As she gets to know this band of brothers, he heart starts expanding and exploding in five different directions, until her world is once again ripped out from under her when in the next second, she wakes up in the trunk of a car. Join her as she fights her way back to guys.

    

In the second book of this series, Melody is trying to get away from her kidnappers. She doesn't want to go to where ever they are taking her, and she's bound and determined to get back to her guys. 

But, that may be easier said than done. And all of the guys are going out of their minds with worry for her, and what will happen next. They must work together to help get her back before it is too late. 

This book was not as good as I was hoping it would be. I still liked it, and I enjoyed the plot line and characters. But, the main thing that annoyed me was how the guys kept thinking it wasn't a good idea for the reverse-harem thing. I figured since they almost lost Melody twice, that it would have opened their eyes, however, that didn't seem to be the case. 

I'm hoping more comes out about it in the next book, but we shall see.

Author: Tijan
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: December 2, 2016



Blurb


Dani’s survived a lot of sh*t storms. 

Her mother died. Her two sisters loathed her. One aunt hated her. The other was strangely distant, but the worst storm—being dumped by her childhood best friend/high school boyfriend/first love for her younger sister. 

There went the one person who was hers and with that, the main reason she stuck around. So, she left for ten years. But now she’s back, and nothing’s the same. 

With help from Jonah Bannon, a reformed—kind of—bad boy she remembers from high school, Dani uncovers family secrets that have spanned generations. And along with those, she’s about to face the biggest sh*t storm of her life. 

Only this time, she may not survive.

Excerpt


“Why’d you push me earlier?” 

“It’s not important.” 

But it was. She felt it in her chest. It was so important, and she needed him to say it again. She was salivating for the chance. She wanted to reassure him, and this time she felt it in her heart. She knew she wasn’t going anywhere. She wanted him to see it in her eyes, that she meant every single word. 

She whispered now, “Ask me. Ask me again.” 

His eyes met hers, narrowing slightly. He was looking into her, reading her. 

She was letting him. There was no wall, no hesitation this time. She wanted him to know her, not just her body. All of her. A second passed. He was still searching in her. Another second. More. He waited a full thirty before asking, his voice so soft and tender, “What would you do if you found out another person cared about you? If you mattered to one more person?” 

“Nothing.” She was trying to convey her feelings through her eyes. She wanted him to know so badly. “I wouldn’t run. I wouldn’t walk. I wouldn’t hide. I’d do nothing except stand and embrace it.” 

His eyes darkened, an emotion passed in them, one that had her heart beating so fast again. “Yeah?” He let go of her hand, but touched the side of her face. He held her in the palm of his hand, and his thumb rubbed over her cheek. It was like he was smoothing away any lingering worries she might have. “What if I was that person?” 

She leaned toward him, her eyes going from his lips back to his gaze. Both were pulling her in, making her yearn for more. “Then I’d say, I feel the same.” Her breath held in her throat. They were talking in code, but it was out now. She was telling him how she felt, and a second later, his lips were on hers.

This. She turned, wound her arms around his neck. This was everything.

Illusion of Ecstasy 
Nicole Loufas
(2nd Dose in the Thizz Series)
Publication date: December 1st 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

When Dani discovered the cash hidden in her attic, she had no idea the problems it would bring. With the help of the Marino’s, Dani is able to launder her father’s dirty money, but their help comes with a price. Her relationship with Matt.
Not wanting to hurt Dani’s future or freedom, Matt removes himself from the equation to keep everyone safe. But when it’s time to go home, he has to decide which is more important – watching his little sister grow up or returning to the girl of his dreams.
Nick is determined to make good on all the bad he’s caused, and has finally accepted his role as a Marino. Fate doesn’t make it easy for him. Especially, when he returns from Europe to find Dani is falling apart. With Matt out of the picture, Nick contemplates a future with the only girl he’s ever loved.
In the conclusion to Thizz, A Love Story, follow Dani, Matt, and Nick on a soul-searching journey into adulthood. The Illusion of Ecstasy explores the emotional tribulations they encounter without the help of thizz. How to deal with real emotion becomes the biggest obstacle of all on their road to maturity.
EXCERPT:
Nick and I circle each other for a few minutes. I wait for him to make the first move. He always makes the first move. To my surprise, he just keeps circling and smiling. Finally, I go for it. I lunge, and he falls against the padded headboard. Wood cracks. I keep wailing on him with the pillow. Nick grabs me around my knees and takes me down. He tries to pin me using a move I taught him. He has no chance. I arch my back and twist my body. Before Nick can take his next breath, I’ve got him flipped over. We’re both breathing heavy. I hold Nick by the neck, not too hard. I don’t want to hurt him. Not really. I’m lying on my back, my arm wrapped around his neck as he’s lying beside me, sort of in front of me. I feel his hand tap out at the same time the screen on the front door squeaks open and then slams shut.
Nick starts to laugh when Dani appears in the doorway.
She takes in the room. The comforter on the floor, the sheets askew. Nick in my arms. She’s trying really hard to keep a straight face. “Am I interrupting something?”
“Just working out some aggression,” Nick jokes and breaks free.
I want to ask what she’s doing here, but I suspect Nick had everything to do with it. The phone call, changing the sheets, it makes sense now. That thoughtful motherfucker.
“I can come back later,” she teases and breaks into a huge grin. Her face lights up. She only beams like this when she’s high. There is only one person who could’ve given her pills.
Nick jumps off the bed and wraps Dani in his arms. He pulls back and kisses her on the forehead. Her eyes flutter closed, and all I can think is—karma is a bitch.
