Book Blitz: Day Human Prince by B. Kristin McMichael & GIVEAWAY



Day Human Prince by B. Kristin McMichael
(The Day Human Trilogy #1)
Published by: Lexia Press
Publication date: April 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Devin Alexander grew up as the only day human in a world surrounded by night humans who drank blood, sometimes his blood. He spent his life training towards one goal: the protection of one of those blood drinkers, Arianna. But what is he supposed to do when the blue-eyed girl of the legends doesn’t need him anymore? What does his life mean then? How is a guy supposed to move on when the girl he has pined over for a decade chooses someone else?

Before he can even start to figure out his new life without Arianna, Devin has to deal with another problem. He needs to take care of some unfinished business with a night human he has known for less than a month, but with whom he is magically bound.

Vanessa McKinny has promised that she knows a way to undo the spell she placed on Devin to save his life. Devin would do anything to break the bond to be free of her, even if it means traveling to the sidhe village, a place inhabited by a race of night humans that has not had a day human visitor in more than a hundred years. If he doesn’t plan to get stuck, he must work with Nessa to find a way to break the bond. Only then can Devin have time to get back to finding his new goal in life, unless he discovers that his path lies with the sidhe.

Blog Tour: Whispering Woods Series by Brinda Berry & Review & GIVEAWAY


Whispering Woods Series by Brinda Berry
Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult

Synopsis Book 1- The Waiting Booth:
A missing boy, government agents, an interdimensional portal... Mia has one goal for her senior year at Whispering Woods High-find her missing older brother. But when her science project reveals a portal into another dimension, she learns that travelers are moving in and out of her woods in the most alarming way and government agents Regulus and Arizona are policing their immigration. Mia's drawn to the mysterious, aloof Regulus, but it's no time for a crush. She needs to find out what they know about her brother, while the agents fight to save the world from viral contamination. But when Regulus reveals that he knows Mia's secrets, she begins to wonder if there's more going on than she thought...and if she was wrong to trust him…




Synopsis Book 2- Whisper of Memory:
Weapons training and winter formals...a deadly combination.

All Mia ever wanted was to fit in at Whispering Woods High. But being a portal-finder who dates a guy from another dimension sort of makes it hard. Mia's brother disappeared over a year ago, and agents from the IIA began policing people's movements through dimensions. She'd trusted Dr. Bleeker from the local university when he'd told her the IIA were the bad guys. But even a girl with an extraordinary ability to sense things can make mistakes.

Now two people are dead, and as a portal gatekeeper for the IIA, Mia needs to find Dr. Bleeker before he hurts anyone else. And her boyfriend Regulus, an Agent for the IIA, carries secrets of his own. Between learning about weaponry, finding the perfect dress for the winter formal, and catching bad guys, who has time to fit in?



Synopsis Book 3- Watcher of Worlds:
Senior year should bring fun, friends, and happiness. Not portals, treachery, and murder.

Seventeen-year-old Mia Taylor, gatekeeper to an interdimensional portal, wants nothing more than to heal from her romance gone wrong. Illegally falling for her co-worker Regulus had been a huge mistake. But when Regulus goes rogue to hunt down a murderer, Mia must forget her broken heart and use her unique abilities to save him. Traveling across dimensions, she enters a strange and hostile world where a rebel faction holds the key to their escape. Her gift of synesthesia is in high demand, and a secret organization of the otherworldly kind has her in their sights. But sabotage and murder may be the least of her worries. Her ex-boyfriend wants a relationship. Her dad wants her to act normal. Her friends want her to stop moping. Who knew faking happy would be the easiest part of senior year?

My Review
The Waiting Booth is the first book in the Whispering Woods series. This book follows Mia, a girl whose brother has gone missing and is trying to pick up the pieces ever since, living with her dad in Whispering Woods. One day Mia meets two handsome college guys, Regulus and Arizona, who turn out to be government agents who monitor the traveling through a portal into another dimension. They want to recruit Mia, since just like her brother, she also has the power of synesthesia. 

This book was really good. It has a very unique storyline, I don't think I've ever read anything with a story quite like this one. The whole idea seemed brilliant to me and I really enjoyed the execution. The story was really fast paced. It's a small book but still a lot of things happen and none of them are boring. The plot kept on unraveling, getting me more and more hooked by the page.

My favorite thing of this story though, were the characters. I loved them all. Berry has a way with making her characters so interesting and unique. They really stood out and were brought to life throughout the whole book. I loved Mia and her friends, Austin and Em, also loved (way too much) Regulus and Arizona, those guys are simply brilliant.

I am really looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Cover Reveal: Sweet Contradiction by Peggy Martinez

SWEET CONTRADICTION by Peggy Martinez


Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 26, 2014
Content Rating: Mature 


When Beth Michaels hightailed it out of the hole-in-the-road town she grew up in, she only had two goals. One—get as far away as quickly as possible, and two—never set foot in her parent’s home again. But when she receives a heart breaking call from her childhood best friend, Jen, she has no choice but to turn her ’56 Ford pickup back in the direction of Salem, Missouri to attend a funeral. 

There’s a new local in town when Beth arrives, and suddenly, it ain’t all that easy for her to remember her rules for dating. 
#1. Cookie-cutter-perfect guys ain’t her type. 
#2. Tie wearin’ and church frequentin’ is an automatic dismissal. 
#3. Most importantly, never date anyone from small minded, conservative, Bible-thumping towns like Salem. 

Unfortunately, Matthew Wright breaks all her rules and then some. 

Matt might be from a small town and have small town values, but that doesn’t mean he fits into a little slot of Beth’s preconceived notions. After all, ever so often good guys are good. Now if he could just convince Beth to let go of her past and give him a chance, he’s pretty sure there’s a whole lotta sweet under that prickly exterior. 

His own … Sweet Contradiction.
