Review: Charade (Games #1) by Nyrae Dawn

Book: Charade (Games #1)

Author: Nyrae Dawn

Published: October, 2012

My Rating: 5/5

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection.

Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom’s dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it’s what he wants too.

Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.

Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.

My Review:

Oh my god, I loved this book!

It reminded me a little of Beautiful Disaster at times, but it’s so much better. And this is said considering that I did like Beautiful Disaster quite some.

Charade is about this girl and this boy getting together in an attempt to hide themselves. Cheyenne needs to show her cheating ex-boyfriend that she’s better off. And Colt needs money to overcome his mother’s medical expenses. But neither are being truthful, with each other or themselves. Continue reading

Title: The Underground Witch (Incenaga #2)

Author: Debbie Dee

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal

Age Group: Young Adult

Book Description:

As the last of the Incenaga Witches, Emmeline has been tortured, abused, and forced to use her power to kill. But unlike the Incenagas before her, she has survived. With her freedom restored, she should feel safe, invincible even. After all, she has the protection of Erick’s army and a power strong enough to obliterate any enemy. Yet Emmeline lives in fear for the next person who will try to control her, and no one can seem to find the tyrant threatening to claim her.

Until it’s too late.

With everything on the line, and the enemy at her throat, Emmeline has no choice but to convince Erick she no longer loves him (or risk him following her) and disappear with the one person she vowed to hate. But when she finds a way to take back her freedom and fight for Erick, will Emmeline be able to use her power like never before? Even if it kills her?

In The Underground Witch, the second novel of the Incenaga Trilogy, Debbie Dee delivers enough adventure, heartbreak, and suspense to captivate readers at every turn.

Waiting On Wednesday: Project Cain by Geoffrey Girard

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

This week’s selection is:

Book: Project Cain

Author: Geoffrey Girard

Release Date: September 3rd 2013

Goodreads | Amazon| B&N

Book Description:

Fifteen-year-old Jeff Jacobson had never heard of Jeffrey Dahmer, the infamous serial killer who brutally murdered seventeen people more than twenty years ago. But Jeff’s life changes forever when the man he’d thought was his father hands him a government file telling him he was constructed in a laboratory only seven years ago, part of a top-secret government cloning experiment called ‘Project CAIN’.

There, he was created entirely from Jeffrey Dahmer’s DNA. There are others like Jeff—those genetically engineered directly from the most notorious murderers of all time: The Son of Sam, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy . . . even other Jeffrey Dahmer clones. Some raised, like Jeff, in caring family environments; others within homes that mimicked the horrific early lives of the men they were created from.

When the most dangerous boys are set free by the geneticist who created them, the summer of killing begins. Worse, these same teens now hold a secret weapon even more dangerous than the terrible evil they carry within. Only Jeff can help track the clones down before it’s too late. But will he catch the ‘monsters’ before becoming one himself?

Why I’m waiting:

I’m not much of a thriller reader, I like to stick to contemporary or paranormal romance, but the cover got me, and then after reading the description I was trapped. It sounds seriously interesting and I’m really excited to read it. It’s not something I’ve heard before, it seems like a pretty original idea to me and I’m looking forward to checking it out.

So, what are you waiting on?  Leave a comment with your WoW link below and I’ll make sure to check it out!

Cover Reveal: The Liberator (Dante Walker #2) by Victoria Scott

Yes, you read it right! We are revealing the cover for the second Dante Walker novel, right about now. Are you excited? I sure am, and I haven’t even read the first book yet. Crazy, right? Well, you wouldn’t think so if you’d read the blurb for The Collector.

Wait. *Stares*

You haven’t read about The Collector, yet? *Gasp* Where were you? Living under a rock? Okay, that’s harsh. Mostly. But true. Anyhow. We don’t have a blurb for The Liberator as of now, but we’ll be getting one in April, excited much? YES! Still, here’s a note from the author, Victoria Scott that’ll get you by until you get to read the first book and then maybe, just maybe, help you cope with waiting for the second 😉

Hey guys! While I can’t reveal many details yet, I will say this book was enormously emotional to write. More action, new characters, higher stakes, and a whole lot of sexy. I hope you enjoy reading the next chapter of Dante Walker’s story!

By the way, Dante wants me to tell you…”Things only get darker from here, doll. Might want to hold my hand for this.”

Okay. I admit it, it might not be a very good help on the coping situation but it’s something. Right? *Shrug*

Are you wondering why I’m still talking? Yes? Have you guessed why? No? Well, it’s because Dante is MINE, so you better remember this as you take a peek at the newly released cover for The Liberator.  Remember it!

Now, without further ado, check it out! Continue reading
