  Declan CoverWhat they say:  ‘“You lied to me, misled me, attacked me,” Declan murmured, dipping his head toward hers, “but what we had three months ago wasn’t fake, was it?” Kate’s gaze faltered to his lips, heat pulsing between them. But she didn’t deny it. Declan Bennett has zero tolerance for thieves. He and his brothers, the Keepers, are fiercely protective of their witch, Sienna, and their privacy. So when Kate Carrigan breaks into their estate, he’ll be damned if he lets the little wildcat get away with it – especially after she seduced him three months ago, leaving him buck-naked in a New Orleans hotel. Declan wants payback – and some answers. Before she was murdered, Kate’s mother ingrained it in her not to trust anyone.  Kate’s magical powers make her a pawn in the war between good and evil, a war she’s always avoided.  Declan is everything she’s been taught to fear, even if she can’t forget the memory of his touch that one night… Trouble is brewing as the powers of evil regroup – bolder and hungrier than ever – and Kate is forced to choose a side. Hot romance, epic battles and action abound in Book 2 of The Keepers.’ Click Here To Buy The Book – UK Click Here To Buy The Book – US   Author PhotAuthor Bio: I’m an avid reader and writer with a passion for writing romance novels.

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge: Day 4

It tis day four! I’m really surprised that I have made it this far. If I make it to day 15 alive and active, we are all throwing a celebration!!

Today we talk about the last book that has outraged you so much that you threw it across the room.  I don’t know if people do this usually but this has only happened to me three times. If this hasn’t happened to you then you need to start reading more intense books! Unless you’re just the type of person that has self-control. In that case, you deserve a golden star for not rationally reacting to a very emotional book. Ok so I know the prompt says the last book, but what the hell. I’m going to tell ALL THREE books, because I’m a rebel!

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge | Good Books And Good Wine

The last book was Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino

17609127[1] Ok so I didn’t REALLY throw it.. It was an ebook and there was no way in hell that I was going to throw my precious phone. If there is anything that is more important to me than physical books, it’s my phone. Because, some people can’t afford 10 Kindles. Nope, I can’t even afford one. So for now I’m stuck with the Kindle app.

But believe me, I mentally threw my phone at the wall on the other end of my room. And then got up and stomped on it.  This book is so….UGH!

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how mad I was at Will for what he did.

I was on a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the whole book. It’s one of my favorites. You can read my review, here.

Another book was The Keepers: Archer by Rae Rivers

KeeperThis was also an ebook. So I sadly did not get to chuck it at a rock. It made me very mad because the main character, Sienna, was so damn girly. I felt like she was ruining everything. And I was a tad bit jealous that she had three hot boys flocking her all the time. And I swear all she would do was complain about them. I would be more than willing to take her place! Haha anyways, you can read my review, here. Along with an excerpt.

The last book is Torment (Fallen #2) by Lauren Kate

7740152[1]I actually did throw this across the room. I feel kind of guilty now that I think of it because it was a library book…

I couldn’t stand it, though! I threw it because of how boring it was. I loved Fallen so much. Just, after this book I couldn’t finish the series. To me the series went nowhere. And Daniel was being a major jerk. I just couldn’t read anymore of it…

Well that’s it! I’d love to hear about any books that you couldn’t bear to finish. Or that lead you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Comment with your 15 day book blogging challenge and I’ll stop by and check it out!

Blurb

Lose yourself in the world of The Keepers, an exciting new Paranormal Romance trilogy from Rae Rivers.

“Don’t ever look for me again, Archer.”
His mouth curled into a smile. “Game on.”

Central Park. Sienna Beckham is out jogging in the autumn sun, feeling almost ordinary. Trouble is, she’ll never be. She’s on the run from her life as a powerful witch and the three Keepers blood-bound to protect her.

Evil is hot on Sienna’s tail and Archer Bennett is searching for her, desperate to find her before they do. As one of her Keepers, he will fight to his death to defend her.

Sienna must return and defend her hometown, Rapid Falls – but she has to face the past and master her powers. And as forbidden feelings blossom between Sienna and Archer, will their love survive the ultimate war?

The Keepers: three strong and handsome warrior brothers, born to protect.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

My Review:
This book got a lot of emotions out of me. I was surprised at how much the main character (Sienna) annoyed me. She is too much of  a girly girl for my taste. The beginning of the book caught my attention, it kept me hooked. I liked the fact that there was action right at the beginning.
Towards the middle, I don’t think it was the best. It focused more on the thought of action rather than the actual action. If that makes any sense. It had the basic idea but no examples leading off to the idea’s base.
The end was really good! It wrapped up the book nicely. Oh how I love cliffhangers… it wasn’t what I expected. But towards the end I was holding my breath pleading.
Throughout the whole book Rivers used a few phases too much. Like how Sienna blames everything on the ‘testosterone’. Also, how every time Archer gets hurt she squeals (she doesn’t squeal, that is just how I imagined it)  “Archer, your hurt!” And rushes over to him. There are a few more but I think I proved my point. Nonetheless, I will definitely read the next book!

Excerpt

Sienna put a hand on Archer’s arm.  “I’m going to find Warrick and get him to talk to me so we can go home.”

Archer responded by sliding both hands behind her lower back and pulling her tighter against him so that her body was flush against his.  She gasped at the sudden close contact and the intensity of his grip on her and tried to pull back to see his expression.

“Just a minute more,” he whispered in her ear, keeping her in place as they swayed to the music.  Her body shivered in response, his breathy words scattering her thoughts in an instant.

“Careful, Archer, any closer and people will start thinking I’m your woman.”

“You are my woman.”

She’d meant to tease him, to ease the sudden possessive grip he had on her, but when his mouth edged towards hers, the gentle scrape of his lips against her skin and his whispered words ripped a soft shudder through her.

“No.”

“Not yet.  In time, you will be.”

She smiled against him.  “Confident tonight, are you?”

“I call it like I see it.”  His fingers toyed with the seam of her dress at her lower back, and his lips hovered dangerously close to hers.

“You know we can’t.”

“I’m not in the mood to please The Circle right now and besides, some of the best things in life are the things that are forbidden.”

“What are we, Adam and Eve?”

His face softened in a breathtaking grin and in a gentle movement, he released her, twirled her around, and drew her back to cradle her in a possessive hold that enthralled rather than annoyed her.

She longed to throw caution to the wind and kiss him, take what he offered, and lose herself in this gorgeous man.  Screw the consequences.

Instead, she opted for the safe route.  “Stop it, Archer.”

“Scared to admit the truth?”

“No.”

“Liar,” he breathed against her lips before pulling back.

She blinked, trying to ignore the flash of desire that raced through her body and pretend her senses hadn’t just been overrun by pure male sexiness.

Wow.

“I should go,” she said, needing some distance between them.  After all, she was here for a reason and it wasn’t to spend the night in Archer’s arms – on the dance floor or otherwise.

The silent motion of his head agreed with her, but she could see that he was worried.

She didn’t blame him.  Beneath her cool façade, even she was worried.

But she had a plan.  One she wouldn’t share with her Keepers just yet.

And she hoped to hell it worked.
