Our rating: 4 out of 5 magical stars

Review: This book is told from Ebony’s point of view rather than Sophia’s, who happens to be her best friend. We hadn’t read the other two books when the author told us about this story. We decided to read the other two first to give this book it’s proper review. We were hooked from the first book Immortal Embrace and couldn’t wait to read the next.Mystic Embrace is fantastically written.The author knows exactly how to keep you hooked and wanting to continue reading. From page one we were put on a roller coaster of emotions. One minute we were laughing and the next crying. The twist and turns, which we will not reveal, kept us on the edge of our seats. We also love how the paranormal element is mixed with the lives of teenagers, who are dealing with the same issues any other teen would deal with. Ebony is a wonderfully written. You can feel her joy and pain. This book is much more than witches, vampires, and demons; it’s a story that can really touch your heart. The whole Embrace series is amazing and we cannot wait to read the next one, which by the way is already out and on our to-read list.

So after you are done preparing for Halloween find a quite spot and read Mystic Embrace

Kiera’s Quest: Sacrifices by Kristy Brown

Official Book Description: After almost beating the villainous Witch Queen, Kiera’s triumph is tainted with sadness for the loss of Joe and Daz. When the handsome Prince Zakk asks Kiera to re-enter his world in order to save her friend, she does not hesitate. On their perilous journey Kiera realizes that she is there to save many lives. As she comes face to face with her evil nemesis once again, Kiera comes closer to finding out the truth to why she has been chosen. Will she succeed? Will this be the end to Kiera’s quest? 

Our rating 4 out of 5 Vortex stars.

Review: This book starts off right where the first book ended. We must say Sacrifices is just as good or maybe a bit better than the first book Awakenings. This story is incredible and has an ending you do not see coming.Sacrifices is filled with action, a little romance, and wonderful adventures that combine the world of Vortex, which we wish really existed, and Earth. Kristy does a remarkable job ending each chapter with a cliffhanger that makes it difficult to put the book down. She also has a brilliant talent in creating characters you will fall in love with. Kiera and Prince Zakk are still amazing together . Although Prince Zakk did upset us for a minute with his wandering eye.  And Kiera can be a little possessive of him at times. The Witch is still as evil and hilarious as ever. We also fell deeper in love with Maddy, who can hold her own on Earth.We love how she accepted the truth. The addition of new characters brings even more to this series. We usually do not like when there is more than one POV because it good get confusing, but Krity handles this just right that you never have to wonder who is speaking. This is a fantastic story for people of all ages. We can even see it becoming a movie or a weekly series, which everyone will enjoy. Besides, who can’t love a book the has tunnels fulll of poo to entertain us. Trust us this book might be short but it’s filled with so many twist and turns you will be entertained for hours. We can’t wait for the next installment of Kiera’s Quest.

So curl up on your bed and read Kiera’s Quest: Sacrifices

She’s begins to believe she becoming a mean girl and things must change. Keaytn life takes a turn and in enters a boat load of boys.

Our rating: 4 out 5 stalking stars.

Review: If you want to read about good looking guys that will take your breath away this is the book for you. We fell in love with Jillian Dodd when we read That Boy. In fact Phillip was our first boyfriend of the week. Now if you are a fan of That Boy and That Wedding, you must know Stalk Me is very different. This book is definitely for a mature YA audience, which we love since we are little older than a the YA audience. Now Keatyn is not our favorite character, in fact we couldn’t stand her. She reminded us of a Paris Hilton. We really did want to like her, but instead we started to want to slap her. We are hoping Jillian Dodd did this so we can see her mature through the next five books. So why did we like this book, you might be asking. Because of the boys!!! There were so many of them and they all have their good traits and their bad traits. Mostly they are all extremely HOT. With so many choice we all did decide we are team Cush, although there was a moment we started to think he was turning into a complete a**. We really hope we read more about him in the next book. Jillian is an amazing writer that really pulls you into a story. We can’t wait to read the next one, Kiss Me.

So get ready to fall in love and read Stalk Me.

Things go from bad to worse when Chase gets arrested. His mother decides to move him to Arizona to live with her father. It is here Chase meets Nikki and falls in love with her at first sight. Unfortunately, Nikki has given up on guys, especially athletes. Chase begins to chase her (this is where the title fits in). He finds everything he needs in Nikki. She helps him to become a better person.

Our rating: 4 out of 5 sobbing stars

Review: It’s been days since we finished reading this book and yet our eyes still tear up when we think about this story. Chase and Nikki are two great characters with so much depth. The romance in this book is beautifully done. We loved the make-out scenes that made us feel like a fly on wall. It was nice to see how Chase and Nikki help each other to overcome so much pain in their lives. The strength they both have is amazing. Nikki became one of our favorite female characters from the moment we were introduced to her. This story felt so real even with the fast pace. As we got closer to the end the box of tissues came out. We all agreed we couldn’t stop crying once we were done reading. For a minute we thought we were reading a Nicholas Sparks book. Now we must say the only reason this book got 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because of the epilogue. It took us for a turn that we aren’t sure we liked. With that said, we really enjoyed this story that set off every emotion in us.

So find a good place to cry and read Chasing Nikki.
