987BF7B2-925E-4210-9902-208C2F07E9D0My name is Lorn, and I’m a witch. Or at least, I thought I was.

Turns out, things aren’t always what they seem.

My magic has always been different from others of my kind—untamed. Something to hide, even in my own world, along with my monster-filled dreams and odd ‘episodes.’

When my entire life is turned upside down with a single drop of blood, the mysterious magick I’ve been trying to hide finally catches up to me.

Deserted and stranded on my own, four strangers offer me asylum and a place to call home. At least, for now.

With the help of Dason, Chayton, Axel, and Kota, I’m discovering the truth about myself as my past and my future collide. The world I grew up in was a lie, and now I’m learning how to use my magick, who my enemies are, and that the beasts stalking my sleep are actually real. And they’re my problem.

Surrounded by deadly threats, the guys and I navigate a world full of supernatural creatures, each with their own agendas, to gather the intel we need to defeat the darkness. Hopefully for good.

There’s danger in the shadows, but I’ll be dead before I let it win.

And I’m just getting started.

Before I managed to finish reading Shadow Touched, I had tried reading this book–allbeit very–briefly. And what I read didn’t interest me at all, unfortunately. However, the synopsis kept nagging and nagging at me. I decided that I had to try reading more than a few pages of Shadow Touched.

And boooooi, I’m glad that I did! Continue reading

IMG_8624

Hello readers!

Today is the day where I post my September 2019 Wrap-Up. Let’s see what I did in the blogging world this past September, hey?

September felt like it flew by. But then again, September and onward tends to move a little more quickly than anticipated. Also, my province won’t be participating in the time-fall-back-thing, and I am pissed.

How was your September?

Enjoy!

38319561._SY475_I always knew I was different. I’d thought it had to be hidden – to stay a secret. I didn’t know my secret would become the key to my survival. Turning eighteen and getting accepted into college brings me everything I need to escape from the nightmares of my past but I never could have imagined my nightmares – and dreams – were just beginning. Finding myself thrown into a world of fantasy, politics, friendships, and rules that are nearly impossible to understand, I feel like I’m drowning in a world of shifters I never knew existed. As I struggle to find my place and prevent my nightmares from tearing me apart, I find myself surrounded by an unusual group of sexy men. With Hiro, Killian, Theo, Damien, and Ryder I’m trying to become the woman I’ve always wanted to be, if my past, and my future, will let me.

*Warning this book contains scenes and references of abuse that some readers may find triggering. This book also contains some m/m themes.*

I had my eye on Born of Embers for such a long time. When I didn’t have it, I wanted to read Nix, and the others’ story so badly. But then I downloaded Born of Embers and suddenly I was apprehensive about reading it. It was only when I re-read the synopsis for Born of Embers that I actually sat down to read it.

August 2019 Wrap Up

IMG_8624

Hello lovelies!

Today I have my August 2019 Wrap Up. I can’t believe how fast the month of August went by. I don’t know about you, but to me, August seems to be one of the faster months of the year. During August I had a lot going on personally, and blog-wise as well.

In August I had family from out of town visit. I also started a big Project that I hope to announce sometime soon (perhaps in the next few weeks) as well.

Blog wise, I had a lot going on too. An overload of book reviews, which might be dwindling down within the rest of the year (because of the Big Project). I also had time to post non-book-review-y things this month as well.

How was your August 2019? 

Enjoy! Continue reading

An Assassin’s Deception, by A.K. Koonce & Harper Wylde | Book Review

Hello friends! Today I’ve got my review of
An Assassin’s Deception.

An Assassin’s Deception is the second book in The Huntress duology/series by A.K. Koonce & Harper Wylde.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Sexual Scenes, Blood

43252303As a rogue assassin, all the rules I used to live by have changed.

I find myself working with four sexy assassin’s who test all of my self-control. Dedicating my life to a greater cause, I’m thrown into a new case – one meant to help rather than harm. If I can just save this missing girl, I know that I’ll be able to make a new life for myself. A life with these men who have become important to me.

It feels so obtainable.

Until my case makes an interesting twist. Everywhere I turn, the League is right there, luring me back into its darkness.

Can I save the girl? Can I truly live outside the League? Or will I lose myself and everything that matters to me while trying?

This is a reverse harem series, recommended for readers 18 and over.

From GoodReads [x]:

“Reverse harem” is, literally, the opposite of “harem”, with a group of males centering round a singular female, usually with three or more males. Quite often found under the romance genre.

I, for some reason, put off reading An Assassin’s Deception for a while. I believe I put off reading this sequel because I enjoyed the first book, An Assassin’s Death, more than I thought I would–and I wanted to like An Assassin’s Deception as well.. Continue reading

April 2019 Wrap Up + Book Haul

Hello friends! Welcome to my April Wrap-Up & Book Haul!IMG_8624

This April I did not have a set TBR and for that, I am so grateful. In fact, because I didn’t set a TBR this month I’ve read more in April than I have these past few months combined! At least it feels that way. I’d forgotten how happy I am when I manage to read a ton.

Throughout April I actually bought quite a few books. And read a few of them in April?! Which is…not something that usually happens to me, haha. I’m very relieved and happy that I somehow managed to do that. I usually buy books and then forget about them. Especially e-books. Do you forget about the e-books you’ve bought too? It’s like my number one fault regarding book buying.

I also managed to post a few things that were not book reviews! Yay time management, looooool.

Enjoy! Continue reading

An Assassin’s Death by A.K. Koonce, Harper Wylde | Book Review

Hello friends! Today I have my review of An Assassin’s Death by A.K. Koonce, and Harper Wylde

An Assassin’s Death is the first book in The Huntress duology/series.

Trigger/ Content Warnings: Sex scenes, Attempted Murder, Murder

If you don’t like reading about sex scenes, or reading pretty smutty scenes in general, I would advise you to not read An Assassin’s Death.

40978399As an assassin of the Lifeless League, there are two rules I live by:

1. Never kill another hunter.

2. Obey orders.

When I find that my newest set of targets are branded with the Mark of the Hunter, I don’t know who I can trust anymore. I can’t take their lives without knowing why these mysterious men turned their backs on the League.

A choice will have to be made eventually. Even if they refuse to make anything easy for me. The four brooding ex-assassins give me trials, training, and tests to study my unusual powers and prove myself as one of them. A deadly plan is now in place but they’ve all made one grave mistake: Underestimating me. Because I’m adding a third and final rule to my list:

3. Survive.

This is a Reverse Harem Series, recommended for readers 18 and over.

From GoodReads [x]:

“Reverse harem” is, literally, the opposite of “harem”, with a group of males centering round a singular female, usually with three or more males. Quite often found under the romance genre.

I bought An Assassin’s Death on the whim that there would be some smutty scenes. And though I wasn’t disappointed, Continue reading
