COVER REVEAL: Volition by Lily Paradis

You know that feeling in the pit of your stomach that stays with you, then tears you apart slowly at first, and all at once shreds every fiber of your being?

It’s because you’re contradicting the universe.

Everything lines up so perfectly that you couldn’t have imagined it to work out any better, but then you have to go and do everything humanly possible to ruin it because you can’t stand to have it go right?

That’s what I did.

I did it because there’s a darkness that surrounds me, and I think I want it there. 

My name is Tate McKenna, and my soul is blacker than my heart.

Right now it’s not enough to have just a little bit of Hayden.
I want all of him.
I want to be engulfed by him.
I want him to set me on fire and burn me until I’m nothing but ashes.
And then I want him to set a flame to those ashes, because he’s the only one who can.

Release Week Blitz: Wicked (A Wicked Saga #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Wicked RWB Banner

 We are over the moon excited to bring you the Release Day Launch for Jennifer L. Armentrout's WICKED! WICKED is a New Adult Paranormal Romance and the first book in Jennifer’s Wicked Trilogy!


Amazon l B&N l iBooks l Kobo

  WICKED Synopsis: Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

It was him. Green Eyes. Ren. That was his name. Now I remembered. I started to step forward, but he beat me to it. Moving as quickly as a damn snake striking, he caught my wrists. He didn’t yank my arms to my sides. All he did was hold my fists away from his face.
A lopsided grin appeared on those full lips. “Can’t say I’m entirely surprised you took a swing at me.”
“Then I guess this won’t surprise you either.” Leaning back, I shifted my weight onto my left leg, but again, Ren outmaneuvered me with a quickness that was sort of embarrassing.
He stepped into what would’ve been a fantastic kick and forced me back against the wall. Then there was nowhere to go, no space whatsoever. My back was against the building, and the entire length of his hard body was pressed against mine.
Son of a bitch.
As if he could read my mind, that grin spread and the dimples played peekaboo. “Now I think we can have a conversation without me ending up bloody.”
I blew out an aggravated breath. “I wouldn’t bet on that not happening.”
He chuckled, and the sound rumbled through me. I couldn’t even remember being this close to a guy since . . . since Shaun. “Look, I’m sorry for snatching you off the street like a kidnapper, but you were about to make yet another huge mistake.”
His apology was lost on me. “Make another mistake?”
“Yeah, like the one last night that ended with you getting shot.” He dipped his chin, and the yellow glow of the light attached to the wall above us glanced off his broad cheekbones. “I know what you were about to do.”
“I didn’t make a mistake last night. I was doing my job,” I spat. “And I doubt your job includes grabbing chicks off the street.”
“That would be a hell of a lot more entertaining, but the moment you thought you could engage that fae last night, you made a mistake. And you were about to do it again, you little ass.”
“Little ass?” I sputtered. “You grabbed me off the street like a serial killer!”
“And I’ve apologized for that even though you should be thanking me. I just saved your life, sweetness.”
Floored, all I could do was stare at him for a moment. “You’re insane.”
“I’m a lot of things, but today I’m your fucking saving grace.”

My Thoughts:

This wasn't the way it was supposed to happen. I wasn't ready for death. I tried to blink away the darkness closing in around me, fast, and steady. And then I welcomed it. 

It's always such a fantastic thing to come across a book that is something different to most other paranormal books doing the rounds. The concept of Anomaly was something original, that I hadn't read before. Pushers, Retractors and Anomaly make up the basis for this exciting, action packed story. 

Josie is having a bad day. Her dad is nowhere to be seen. her boyfriend dumped her, she thinks she's coming down with something and she walks in on her ex kissing someone else not long after he dumps her. What a great birthday!! But things are about to get a whole lot weirder with the emergence of the gorgeous, motorbike riding, Reid. Everything Josie thought she knew about her life seems to be based on lies. Josie is an Oculi and Reid has come to protect her and teach her everything she needs to know.

Anomaly is told from both Josie and Reid's POV. And I think this could be my new favourite thing, since it's the absolute perfect way to get a feel for the whole story and what makes the main characters tick. Josie is intelligent and has a great strength about her. She is thrown curveball after curveball but takes everything in her stride. She's a bit of a thinker and weighs things up. I loved that she was nerdy and had no trouble embracing that side of herself. That really allowed me to connect with her.

He was one of those guys who didn't try to be hot, he just was. He looked like a badass.

I liked Reid from the start. Sweet, caring , protective, motorbike riding... What wasn't to love! He always seemed to have Josie's best interests at heart and even when he was not being completely upfront, you knew that his reasons were honourable. 

"The three rules of the Resistance."
"One, cause no harm. Two, never reveal Oculi abilities. Three, Don't play God."

There is plenty of action throughout the story and that really escalated as it moved towards it's conclusion. All that action along with plenty of surprises throughout really kept me turning the pages. 

The only aspect of the story that I found slightly confusing was all the references to Star Wars and Star Trek and such. Not being a huge fan of either, it all went over my head a bit, so some of the humour was a bit lost on me unfortunately. And while it in no way detracted from the story, I would have liked to be in on all the little jokes that were shared between Josie and Reid, since that was a big part of their budding relationship.

Anomaly is a really great, solid debut from Tonya Kuper, and I'm incredibly eager and excited to see what she has in store next for Josie and Reid.
