I really love this series! I really enjoyed the first in the series, The Sweetest Night. I also loved The Deepest Night, I may have even enjoyed it more than the first! I'm really looking forward to the next in the series. It better turn out how I want! I don't want to be disappointed! I love the journey the main characters go through and how they are there for each other. More and more I'm liking Armand, he is really growing into a strong individual. I love how protective he is of Lora, and he doesn't waver. Lora is still great, I love how strong she is. One thing I would love for her, is to open up some. Especially with Armand. She needs to not be so closed off. I think I liked this book more than the first, because I liked that it was mainly away from the school. The adventure they go on adds so much to the story. I really hope we get a happy ending for the characters, and certain things that have been suggested don't happen. I'm really enjoying Shana Abe, and I have read other books of hers. I always enjoy Abe's books. Really, Really looking forward to the next book, please hurry!

I absolutely loved it! It took me a bit to get into the story, but as soon as the twist started to be introduced, it was nothing but love from there! I feel the only reason I didn't care for some of the beginning is that I don't like the whole snotty mean girl vibe, but I get that needs to be a part of some stories. I'm glad Lora didn't turn out to be some wilting flower. She's had horrible things done to her, and she stills stands up for herself. She's got strength. Jesse was super wonderful, and so selfless. It would be hard not to adore him. Armand was a little harder for me to like, but he did grow on me a bit later on in the story. I'll tell you though, I hate the nickname Mandy! Horrible! Every time someone called him that, I'd cringe. The twist was wonderful, I was thinking it was going to go one way, and then BAM!, nope that's not the way it goes. I love the direction it went. I like the visuals Shana Abe creates with her words. The setting really adds life to this story. If you like fantasy love stories then definitely read The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abe. This story really worked for me. Next up on my to read list, the sequel to The Sweetest Dark, The Deepest Night. I'm really looking forward to it!

I loved this book! It's so heartbreakingly wonderful. I knew after reading what the book was about, I'd have some pissed off moments, but I was willing to give it a go. The main character Vi, has been in love with her childhood best friend Gabe since kindergarten. When he announces he's engaged to another woman, a woman who is nothing like Vi, her heart breaks. Vi tries to close off her feelings, and be there for her best friend, even when she knows who he's marrying is so wrong for him. In comes sexy Landon who Vi meets at a dance club. He seems perfect for Vi, but can she forget her love for Gabe? Gabe who has had years to be with Vi, and hasn't taken the chance. Gabe who is engaged to another woman. How the story works out, I really felt for Vi. Vi is a strong, wonderful character. Gabe's ignorance pisses me off. I just wanted him to wake the hell up! All in all, the feeling I had after reading this book was one of happiness. I'm glad it turned out the way it did. If you like charming romances, with great characters, read Keeping Secrets in Seattle. Brooke Moss built a wonderful world, and wonderful characters. I will be reading much more from Brooke Moss! This book is a definite read!

Super Sweet Romance! Quick read, read it in one sitting. Liv and Jake have a great chemistry. Both are likeable interesting people. The author took some time to create a back story for both characters, and a support system for both. Resulting in some fun scenes! There are a couple twists in the story, which help add some mystery! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed A Taste of Trouble. I'll be looking into other books from the author, Gina Gordon. If you are looking for a light hearted, steamy romance, without being too steamy, definitely read A Taste of Trouble!
Bittersweet Blood Review
If you are looking for a story featuring a spicy alpha male and a virginal damsel in distress, look no further! Tara, our main female character, has been living in isolation since her birth. When her "aunt" dies, she decides it's time to join the real world. But Wait! There are family secrets that are unknown to our Tara. So who better to help her find these secrets out than vampire PI, Christian Roth! So starts an interesting story involving all types of supernaturals, all which Tara has no clue about! You've got vampires, demons, faeries, werewolves, and shapeshifters! There's steamy love scenes with sweet romantic yearning. Also gruesome fights. Great cast of characters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves steamy romance with alpha males. There is some violence, so beware of that. This seems to be part of a series, and I will definitely be read more in this series. I will also read any further Nina Croft books.
