All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just friendship.

But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams?

Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.

COVER REVEAL: Forever My Girl

Release: December 27th

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my soul into my music, but I’ve never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I’m going back.

After ten years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.

 But the trio's greatest challenge awaits them: A life-endangering pursuit in search of Durga's final gift, the Rope of Fire, on the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal.  It's a race against time--and the evil sorcerer Lokesh--in this eagerly anticipated fourth volume in the bestselling Tiger's Curse series, which pits good against evil, tests the bonds of love and loyalty, and finally reveals the tigers' true destinies once and for all.

Fourth installment of the Tiger Saga which set off on Ren and Kishan looking for Kelsey Hayes after Lokesh abducted her. This time new adventures, new alliances and different creatures to meet in the realm of fire were laid on Kelsey and her tigers' paths on their quest to unite the Damon Amulet and break the curse that was cast upon the princes. Phoenix, blood drinkers called Rakshasas and walking corpses are just some of the creatures you will meet that makes the story more enchanting. 

The last chapters of the book felt like this could pass as the final installment in the series because everything seemed to be perfect and the questions were now answered. I now wonder what to expect of the fifth book and I'm really excited. The tigers and Kelsey have fulfilled their destinies with heart wrenching sacrifices that changed not only their lives but also the people whom they love. There were no dull moments and it's truly a page-turner book, it has the kind of story you wanted to finish right away to know all the answers and yet when you near the last chapters you don't want it to end.

Beautifully written, extraordinary with invigorating characters full of fire in their spirit, action-packed,finding love and knowing that it is the only thing in the universe worth risking all for. Definitely must-read for everyone.

Do you ever felt somehow lost in a place or a moment that something was not right or misplace but then as everything takes place you realize you’re in the right set and it is all perfect?

That’s the thought that I felt with this book. When I first read the title the first thing that comes to my mind was that it’s definitely another paranormal book or somewhere in a fantasy genre but to my surprise it’s not. I’m happy that I stumble with this book and was given a chance to review it. 

First Light is an action filled book with a perfect blend of romance in it. Ronnie Rose is person who faces a lot of responsibility in her life. She loses her father, there is a huge debt left in her sister and her hands, and her best friend seems to be slipping away out of her life too. But when a mysterious guy enters her somewhat jumble life everything changes. Kalen Smith is a mysterious, protective, intelligent and of course handsome and hot guy*swoon*. I liked how the author used both the protagonist to change each others life. Ronnie let her self welcome new other things in life and meet other people as well as Kalen. Ronnie became more responsible, strong, bold and independent thorough out the story. The plot was poignant it really captured my taste for mystery/thriller books. And it has snippet of Kalen’s past life which helps me to understand more of him.

There were the old friends and new friends were built. I totally love the other ‘Four Guys’—Nash, Laith even if sometimes he’s rude, Denver and of course Ace. All of them brought something to the story that makes it more captivating and will have you finished it in a day or less.

 I felt that the end of the book was great and I think that the book was good to be left like that. But there’s a sequel so…I have to wait...

But I’d be definitely happy to be one of the first readers of it! Oh did I mention I was a sucker for action stories? And because of it this book deserved a 4 hearts J
