Carmen Kennedy finally feels normal. Enrolled in college, she’s making a few friends and taking life one day at a time. Her days are filled with classes, studying, and attempting to be more social, while her nights are filled with terrifying dreams. All of her nightmares have one thing in common: him. She can’t see his face, but a flash of dark feathers is all it takes to remind her of The Keeper of Crows. He isn’t supposed to be real. There is a world that exists beneath the fabric of our own, a torturous place filled with despair. The Keeper is there; Carmen just has to find out why and if there is a way to help him leave that place. Her sanity and life will be threatened, but she can’t ignore his screams any longer. When love exists, it doesn’t matter the distance. It finds a way to remind you. Will love be enough to save Michael and Carmen when The Keeper of Souls stands in their way?

If you haven’t reader Keeper of Crows there might be spoilers in this review…

I have been “patiently” waiting for this book!! I need to know how this story ended!
We start where we left off after Keeper of Crows. Carmen is going to college after being released from a psychiatric facility. Everyone thinks she’s crazy after she comes back from purgatory and trying to explain what she saw there.

Michael is trapped in Hell with Lucifer who is trying to break him. He’s trying to make him believe Carmen betrayed him and never loved him.

Carmen meets Cass and Zane when she moves into the dorms at college. One seems like a great guy while the other seems like he has an ulterior motive.

“Well, you’re wrong.” Zane let out a low growl that I felt low in my belly. It reminded me so much of him. But that couldn’t be…

Carmen keeps having these very vivid dreams of things that she cant decide are real or not. She keeps seeking professional help because everything is spinning out of control and she doesn’t know what’s true and what’s not.

He would regret the day he was created. And I would enjoy every moment of watching him fade into nothing.

I loved the conclusion to this series! I loved the suspense, and being kept on the edge of my seat! I loved Carmen and how great she was! She never gave up and never took anyone’s crap.

Will Michael make it out of Hell? Will Carmen realize what is real? Is there a HEA for them? Or will there only be heartbreak and destruction?

Title: Cheater
Series: Curious Liaisons
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Publisher: Skyscape

cheater

Every cheater has a story. This is Lucas Thorn’s.

synopsis
Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.
But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry-blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.
Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.
Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love . . .

excerpt
“They’re well aware of the arrangement.”
“And Sundays?” Not staring at him was too hard; therefore, I focused on the cleft in his chin so I wouldn’t look at his perfect lips . . . or the swell of his biceps. When he crossed his arms, I was almost afraid the shirt was going to rip, and it was a nice shirt, soft, white. Okay, Avery, stop staring at the fabric like you want to make babies with it. That’s weird—don’t be weird.
“Sundays are for my sister, Erin.”
He shifted uncomfortably. Was it my imagination, or did those biceps flex beneath the shirt like he was tensing?
As if the tensing wasn’t bad enough, he cleared his throat and blinked way too many times for a man who was being completely honest about his sister.
“Huh.” His shirt really was nice though—stain-free. How did he manage it with all the sex and lipstick? “So you were being honest about that?”
“Honesty,” he said, “is necessary when you casually date seven women, right?”
“Oh please!” I locked eyes with him. “You’re excusing horrible behavior by saying the girls are aware, but the whole sex without strings doesn’t exist. That’s a fantasy like Santa Claus or the Easter bunny.”
“Holy shit! Santa’s fake?” He winked. “And they’re all okay with it. Besides, it’s not like I’m sleeping with you.”
I hated him for saying it.
Because immediately I had a vision of his mouth on mine, clothes on the floor, and every forbidden fantasy I’d had throughout high school flared to life, fanned by the words that he’d just released into the universe, words that would be impossible to take back.
I sucked in a breath, and he licked his lips, his eyes focusing on my mouth.
It was wrong.
And a small part of me liked that feeling, the wrongness of being in my boss’s office, the history, but it was only 1 percent.
Ninety-nine percent of me still wanted to nail him to a wall and use his balls as target practice with a shiny, new aluminum bat.
Lucas took a step toward me. I took a step back.

There’s a bad moon on the rise for Abby Craig. Nothing is as it seems. And it’s going to take more than Southern hospitality to survive the night. A lot more.

download1

This is book 12 is this series. These are usually pretty quick reads for me, but I absolutely love them! The author does a great job keeping you on edge of your seat.

Abby Craig was in a car crash and was dead for 44 minutes…she now sees ghosts and has been helping them. In order to understand everything you’ll need to read the first 11, so if you haven’t, there will be spoilers in this review…you’ve been warned!

Jesse is Abby’s best friend and was in the accident with her, unfortunately, he wasn’t as lucky as her and died. It took her until the end of book 1 to realize this, because she can see ghosts but didn’t realize it at first so she didn’t think anything of it.

“Did you ever spend much time in yours?” I asked. “Your coffin?”
“Not a second. I just stood next to my dad, trying to tell him I was all right. But he couldn’t hear me.”
“I’m sorry I wasn’t there,” I said.
“You didn’t miss much. Besides you were still in the hospital and under the impression I was alive, remember?”
“I remember,” I said. “That was very special, what you did. Not telling me until I was ready.”
“Don’t mention it.”
I went over and kissed him on the cheek.

We met the Mortimer brothers earlier in the series…they are actually a pretty big, and important part. Nathaniel is crazy…he died, but never moved on, then he took over his brother Ben’s body. Nathaniel ended up killing Ben, but since he’s a ghost and no one can see him Abby gets blamed, so she runs to avoid murder charges.

Abby has/had this great amazing boyfriend/fiancé Ty, he even understood all the ghost stuff. When she ran because the murder charges he was crushed. She misses him, but is afraid he hates her but she still loves him. We get to kind of hear how he’s doing when she talks to David (one of her besties)!

“How’s Ty doing?”
There was a long pause.
“Do you want me to tell you the truth or should I just lie?”
My heart dropped hard like a watermelon falling off the back of a truck.
“Is he bad?”
“Girlfriend, you were the love of his life. He’s not good, I’ll tell you that much. But I think he’s getting better. Man, if Sista Kate knew I was telling you…”
“Telling me what?”
“Well, really, there’s not much to tell. Except that…” “Except what?”
“He’s gone, Abby Craig. He’s back in Montana.”
I didn’t know why it hurt hearing that, but it did.
“He’s been in bad shape since you left. I mean, beyond bad shape. He even managed to get himself fired.”

We met Samael a few books back, he told Abby he’s a fallen Angel who is trying to atone for his sins. After book 11 we still aren’t sure if he’s good or bad, he just comes and goes but does seem to be helping Abby get ready for her final show down with Nathaniel. This book is about her trying to get better physically, mentally, and spiritually.

At the very end she has a vision of Samael with a demon, kissing his hand…hmm maybe he isn’t good at all…I guess we’ll have to see in the series final book 13…

An icy shiver passed through me as I realized who it was that Samael was kneeling before.
A spirit even darker than Nathaniel.
The darkest of them all.
The original fallen angel.
Lucifer.

I have loved all these books, and I highly recommend this series!!
