Teaser 1 


He groaned, closing his eyes as his pulse hammered into a heavy throb. Spending the day in bed with Tori was never a bad idea. God knew, he’d been doing enough of it lately. And despite the fact that his cock responded with enthusiastic agreement, Ethan broke out of her loose hold and pivoted to put the mug of coffee in her hands.



Teaser 2 

“Run!” he commanded, his voice hoarse now, his heart beating like the locomotive that was fast approaching.
Scott recognized the song reaching its last chords. “Shit!”
A young woman appeared on the top step, hurrying down. She turned sideways to squeeze through the narrow opening, and he reached for her and pulled, but met with resistance. His gaze flew to her face. Her eyes went wide in horror as she tried to pull free of the bus, but failed.
“Fuck!” he cursed behind his helmet and reached past her where her top had caught in a jagged edge left by the broken glass.






This was my teaser this week, now I really cant wait to see yours.

REVIEW:

22992234Title: Cut and Run
series: Phoenix Code
Author: Lara Adrian & Tina Folsom
Date Published: November 17th 2014 

Description: Darkly gifted and dangerously skilled, they were once the nation's most powerful asset. Betrayed by unknown enemies, unable to trust anyone--not even one another--the Phoenix hold the key to unmasking a conspiracy steeped in blood and fire. To survive, they'll have to solve . . . The Phoenix Code.

CUT by Lara Adrian

Community college professor Ethan Jones is living a lie. A precognitive agent known as Zephyr, Ethan is accustomed to subterfuge and deception, but when the Phoenix program is betrayed, he’s forced to cut all ties to the life he's made and everyone in it—including smart, beautiful Tori Connors, the one woman who tempted the cold agent to let down his impenetrable facade.

A chance encounter years later and thousands of miles away thrusts the lovers together again, and this time Tori refuses to let Ethan deceive her. Although he is a dangerous enigma, Tori still desires him, and soon their inconvenient reunion becomes a temptation too strong to resist. With assassins closing in, Ethan and Tori embark on a desperate race for their lives—one that will put their tentative trust to the ultimate test.

RUN by Tina Folsom

Motorcycle mechanic Scott Thompson isn't the laid-back loner he makes everyone believe. Three years ago, he was known as Ace, one of an elite group of agents in a top secret CIA program. However, the preternatural ability that made him invaluable to the government could now be his downfall, when his skill alerts him to a disaster bound to kill dozens of innocents unless he intervenes.

Journalist Phoebe Chadwick needs to persuade her editor to spare her from department cuts that threaten her job. When a mysterious stranger prevents an accident that would have killed her and many others, Phoebe goes after the story. But bad boy Scott is a reluctant hero unwilling to answer her questions, despite the sizzling chemistry that ignites between them. As his enemies hunt him down, Scott must decide if he can trust Phoebe—and how far he’s willing to go to keep her safe at his side





Review:

This book is two books in one, based around some men, but there not any normal men they have the gift of premonition and they are called the Phoenix Code. 


Cut is written by Lara Adrian, 
Ethan Jones  has made a life for him self with the beautiful Tori Conners but he is forced to cut all  ties to his life with her  because the phoenix program has been betrayed  and it isnt safe any more.

while on the run Ethan bumps back into Tori again, this is one thing he never expected to happen. he tries not to fall for her again and tries to walk away but Tori is to strong minded to let that happen again, No matter what the danger she knows what she wants and she is determined to get it.




Run is written by Tina Folsom

Scott Thompson formally known as Ace likes everyone to think he is laid back but he isn't. he was once apart of an elite group of men in the CIA. but now what once made him an essential part of the group could down be his downfall. 


Phoebe Chadwick  is on the verge of loosing her job and has to try hard to persuade her boss to not pay her off.  She goes after a man that saves her life hoping that the story might save her job.But Scott isn't to happy about being the centre of Phoebes story no matter how hot she makes him feel. Scott has to decide how he feels about Phoebe and has to decide what he is willing to risk to keep her safe.





 Now I'm a big fan of Lara's but I will admit to not being keen on the idea of two books in one,and I'm not a big fan of ebooks. But having said that I was pleasantly surprised  at how much I did really enjoy it. it was nice to read because as I say I'm a big fan of Lara's work but also because it was nice being introduced to a new author I probably would never of looked at. both story's  were really well written and I think its going to be a series that I'm going to get into. I also think that if the rest of the hero's are like the ones in this book  I'm going to be weak at the knees by the end of the series. I will be looking for more books by Tina because I think she could become  another author who I become addicted to very quickly.

REVIEW!!!!!

10357792Title: Up from the Grave
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series:  Night Huntress
Date Published: 28th Jan 2014



Deacription: Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death… because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear — will be hovering on the edge of the grave



Review:   Well im very sad to say this is the last book in this series, In it we find out that someone is trying to mix Vampire and Ghoul  DNA to make a super weapon. or so thats what the person thinks. but the true reason is that a demon has come up with an idea to make a war between Ghouls and Vampirs, which will leave the world  for Demons alone.


there is a little girl in this book and when you hear her story you feel so sad for her, it turns out there experiments with the DNA works and the little girl is the result and she is  brought up knowing nothing but fighting and death. But when Cat and the gang find out about her they make it there mission to free her and  stop the war. I dont want to tell you any more of the story because with it being the last one I dont want to spoil it for you, just know that this book is filled with  lots of shocking parts and some parts that will make you angry and maybe even some parts that might make you cry.. Just know that this is a rollercoaster ride of emotions that you just wont want to miss.

Another well written book full of all our favourite characters  and a great story plot.  Im wiping away the tears as I say good bye to them all in hope that maybe when the little girl is older they might make a reappearance .

REVIEW!!!

7954556Title: One Grave at a Time.
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series:  Night Huntress
Date Published: 




Description:Having narrowly averted an (under)World War, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans's voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.
Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he take physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity - forever. But one wrong step and they'll be digging their own graves


Review:  In this book we see a nasty arse ghost acalled Kramer, he is sick and twisted and when he was alive he was a witch hunter. you would think that in death his plans for destroying women for being witchs  would be at an end but no this  guy manages to find a way to continue  evern after death. At Halloween he manages to find the power to become flesh and gets worse. Cat and Bones have to work with the others  to find a way to put the ghost behind bars seen as you can not kill a ghost. in this book Cat gets put in a lot of pain while fighting to kill this ghost so much so that her hair is burned off as he trys to burn her at the stake.  
I ll be truthful and say this hasnt been my favourite book in the series but I loved it all the same. I was a little disappointed in this book because Bones and Cat seem to of lost the spark that has always been to hot between them.  I think thats always been one of the main reasons iv loved these books so much. Having said that, this book still held my interest because I couldnt wait to see what happened next and how they captures Kramer. I thought it  was a really good idea that maybe needed tweaked a little.


RATING 4 STARS


REVIEW!!!

6871617Title: This side of the Grave
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series:  Night Huntress
Date Published: February  22 2011




Description: Danger waits on both sides of the grave.
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they've triumphed over the latest battle, Cat's new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance . . .

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous "ally"; the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war . . . to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.



Review:  In this series we see that finally Cat and Bones have reached a happy place in there relationship . you would think that these two deserve some peace but know, Cat has got some new ability's and they are threatening the balance between the ghouls and vampire races and there might be a new war coming. if the two go to war then it could mean the end of man kind and Cat and Bones and the gang  set out to put a stop to it and to find out who is spreading  rumours to stir things up.  to stop them Cat and Bones go to seek help from a very powerful  Ghoul but can they pay the price for her help.


Like the last book this one got some not so great things said about it  and again I dont agree with them . I think this book was just as good as the rest have been so far and it is still one of my favourite series so far. I love that in this book we see everyone is together and they work with each other to stop the bad guy, I think i like this because it shows Cat and Bones  need people to and they are not to super strength that they can stop everything on there own. I mean everyone needs friends dont they.. Again a very well written peace of work. and another book I couldn't put down.  I repeat from the review of the last book if you havnt read this book you should go out and get it. I promise you wont be disappointed. 


Rating 5 lips 




REVIEW!!!!

3570231Title: At Graves End
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series:  Night Huntress
Date Published: January 1st 2009 





Description:  It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger. 

As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’s past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.




REVIEW:  Cat and Bones work with each other and Cats platoon to get rid of the nasty undead that face to threaten mankind.  All seems to be going great for the pair untill Cats vampire father comes into the picture set out to kill her. As the book goes on we see that Max ( Cats Dad and vampire trying to kill her) has more dangours  vampires backing him and it almost leads to all out war in the vampire race.  

We also got a better look  at some of the  suppoting characters in this book and I liked that, because a good book isnt all about the two main characters. 


I loved this book but then I dont think iv read a book in this series yet that I havnt loved.  This book for full of action but we also seen Cat and Bones grow as a couple and become closer. This only made me love them all the more. Some times Bones just makes me swoon and my belly flutter, he isnt my main crush in this series but he can still have a big effet on me hahahaha. again another  well written book, I dont think iv come accross any flaw in this series up tp now and I think im running out of good things to say, that doesnt make me sound like im repeating my self lol. 

THIS BOOK AND SERIES IS A MUST READ.
