The Mistress

The Mistress - Tiffany Reisz



The final book in The Original Sinners Series - The Red Years.
There's punishment-and then there's vengeance.
Nora Sutherlin is being held, bound and naked. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captor isn't interested in play. Or pity.
As the reality of her impending peril unfolds, Nora becomes Scheherazade, buying each hour of her life with stories-sensual tales of Søren, Kingsley and Wesley, each of whom has tempted and tested and tortured her in his own way. This, Nora realizes, is her life: nothing so simple, so vanilla, as a mere love triangle for her. It's a knot in a silken cord, a tangled mass of longings of the body and the heart and the mind. And it may unravel at any moment.
But in Nora's world, no one is ever truly powerless-a cadre of her friends, protectors and lovers stands ready to do anything to save her, even when the only certainty seems to be sacrifice and heartbreak....







Have you ever loved someone so much, that you could die for him, her?

Gunmetal Magic (Kate Daniels World #1)

Gunmetal Magic -  Ilona Andrews It's sad to give 3 stars to one of Ilona's books, but I can't give more. I liked Andrea and Raphael, and I still do, but this didn't felt right. Everything could have been different, but I guess it's also my fault, that I keep comparing them to Kate and Curran.So, my rating doesn't mean that this is a bad story or anything, it just wasn't satisfying enough for me.Peace,A.
Suddenly Royal - Nichole Chase Amazing! This story was truly amazing! It had left a warm feeling in my chest.I recommend to all romance lovers, you just have to read it!
Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) - Ilona Andrews It just get's better and better!
Magic Bites  - Ilona Andrews This was AWESOME!I loved it, re-reading it was even better then the first time!I forgot how much I missed her bravado :D That girl has a mouth on her! That's for sure!Also, re-reading it, made me appreciate the world that Ilona Andrews building even more! This series is soooooooooo amazing! Fangirling!!!!!So anyway, there's nothing I could say that wasn't said about this book. so just GO and READ IT!!!Peace.
Two Alone - Sandra Brown, Joyce Bean There might be some spoilers, consider yourself warned! I was curious to listen to this book.I loved it the first time I read it, it was in my language so I wanted a real feel for it.And I feel a bit disappointed with the story itself. I guess it has a lot to do with that it was written about the time I was born. So I don't agree with a lot of comparisons between man and a woman.I also don't agree with hero's mannerism and that the heroine was so spineless and took soo many insults. I would have slapped the shit out of the hero in the first 10 minutes of the book. Stress or no stress, you DO NOT talk to a woman like that, who just basically saved your life if nothing else. No matter if you like, hate or despise her. That was just wrong. And In my opinion she forgave and forgot everything way too quickly.Anyway Sandra Brown always knew how to write a story, and to keep readers interested and entranced in the read.And it's also sad, cause I'm a big fan of her, but the ending wasn't to my liking :( It was lacking the intensity of their relationship.But all that stuff aside, I liked it. There were a lot of eye-rolling, but I forgave for that. Again - it's the time it was written. 50shades would have shocked the shh.. out of everyone :DDPeace

Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands, #1)

Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands, #1) - Cherise Sinclair Ok so you see my 4 stars.. The thing about this book.. hmm.. where should I start. From beginning, duh!Well I was frustrated from the start.. so much cheese things happened that I actually considered dropping it(like it's hot). I didn't. Thought, ah, what the hell, it's not like it's long. And I'm glad now that I finished reading it. From the start there were things so far from reality I couldn't help but face-palm A LOT!Jeeez I thought, cause I always saw good ratings for this series, and my friend Aly recommended this to me and kept nagging for me to read it. And I hate to admit it, but she does have a good taste in books, well, expect for reading way to many HR, but everyone has flaws, right? :))So anyway, the point of this review is to calm down everyone who started reading this and are not sure if it's worth tho finish. Well it is. Cause by the end I wanted more of these two characters. Maybe it's not the best way of introduction into a new series, but I see a great potential, and my girls says it gets better as we read. So I believe in them, believe in this author. I will keep reading and keep you updated :))PeaceMistress A.

Epilogue: The Dark Duet (The Dark Duet, #2.5) by C.J. Roberts

Epilogue: The Dark Duet (The Dark Duet, #2.5) - C.J. Roberts



I’m writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging. In fact, you probably know too many things and know them far too well.
Who am I?
Well, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I was a whore in my youth, a killer since my adolescence, and a monster as a man. I am the man who kidnapped Livvie. I am the man who held her in a dark room for weeks. But, most importantly, I am the man she loves.
She loves me. It’s quite sick, isn’t it?
Of course, there’s more to our story than can be surmised in a few short sentences, but I’m at a loss for justifying my behavior back then. I assume if you’re reading this, I don’t need to make those justifications. You’ve already made your own.
You’re reading this because you want to know about the rest of the story. You want to know what happened that warm summer night in September of 2010, the night I met Livvie at The Paseo. It was the night my life changed all over again.
It didn’t happen exactly as Livvie said. She’s been very kind to me in the retelling of our story. The truth is far more…complicated.

Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsession - Jennifer L. Armentrout




This is a stand alone novel that is an adult spin-off of the Lux Series You do not need to read a Lux book to read Obsession and vice versa.

He’s arrogant, domineering, and... To. Die. For.

Hunter is a ruthless killer. And the Department of Defense has him firmly in their grasp, which usually doesn’t chafe too badly because he gets to kill bad guys. Most of the time he enjoys his job. That is, until he’s saddled with something he’s never had to do before: protect a human from his mortal enemy.

Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something... unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.

Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life… or is it Hunter?




Easy going, Light but sensually Dark read that I recommend to everybody! 

I give 4 solid stars to this book.

And not just because in my opinion it was better in a way, then Lux series.

Although it's not fair to compare these books, mainly because it's incomparable.
Yes the tone and the style is there. Author writes it with light humor and I love that.
So although it wasn't world shattering and completely mind blowing and powerful like some books on my favorites list, this is definitely A MUST READ material.
After all the frustration I went through during my introduction into this word full of aliens, thanks to Lux series.Not.
I found this to be refreshing and very pleasing.
Of course there are flaws ... That insta-love is getting old and I wish authors would just stop with it.
But the chemistry between those two... HOLY HOTNESS!!!!! WOW! It was worth every bitchy feeling and comment I had and thought of when reading "Onyx"...


Opal (Lux Novel)

Opal - Jennifer L. Armentrout

Opal - Jennifer L. Armentrout    All the fangirls beware, Aure comes with a vengeance!Katy, you better not piss me off again, or I'll drop the series after this... Consider yourself warned!


Onyx (Lux Novel) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Onyx - Jennifer L. Armentrout


Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.
Something worse than the Arum has come to town….
The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies….




*/ --- MAJOR SPOILERS --- */

****** Beware! ******

What the hell??????

It's like she knocked her head too hard too many times, in a row!!!!!

I was never, NEVER so mad at the heroine.

All that babbling about having feelings for Daemon are there just because of the bond, being spineless, clueless, soo stupid and soo naive all the time!
Finishing this book was a real challenge! 
I wanted to scream and scream my frustration out while reading this.. 
I'm actually surprised there's such a good rating..
It's well written, and there's all kinds of people here, with different tastes and blah blah.. but my GOD!!!!!!!

Because of her everything went to shit practically from the start. 
Why couldn't they just get together and then face the enemy? 
Why did they have to battle with each other AND with the enemy and then get together at the MOST INAPPROPRIATE moment in the book?? When because of her Adam got killed.
But suddenly everyone understands and they're not mad at her. Of course, how can you be mad at a COMPLETE IDIOT!!!!!!???????

From the start I smelled something fishy about Bobby, or is it Boris? Oh right it's Flake, I mean Blake.... I loved you Daemon so much for being an asshole with him!
How can she not get suspicious about him? To be so stupid and trust a person you don't really know, and NOT trust a person you already got to know, and no matter what kind of asshat he could be, he saved your life numerous times and obviously cares for you!!!!
But nooo... not you.... you just close your eyes Katy .. 
If not for you, this book could have been so awesome!!!! This whole series could have been one of my favorites!
But I just CAN'T forgive your idiocy. You were selfish, and because of you, because you haven't asked for help or advise when you could have, people and not just people got killed or imprisoned...

I wish, I wish I could slap you out of it. But I heard that book 3 is even worse.

Now people who read my reviews probably noticed that I try, really try to say something good about the book, even if I haven't loved it.
I wish I could say more nice things about this one too, the problem is, everything paled in a bright light of Katy

Peace, A.
