    Dark Summer by S.J. Coles

    Release Date: July 27th This is the sequel to Blood Winter – which I thought was rather amazing in a dark and despondent sort of way. Dark Summer has that same almost dystopian feel and it’s all because of Alec’s mood. He’s the sole narrator of the story and thus sets the tone for the entire book. He’s as anti-social as they come and broody as all get out. Borderline depressive actually. Synopsis: The story pretty much starts where Blood Winter ended. Terje has returned and they’re now trying to start a life together. In secret since no one can know that Terje is still alive. Alec’s and Terje’s differences…

    Waylaid (True North #8) by Sarina Bowen

    This is such an awesome read. 4.5 stars! And it intrigued me from the very start. Synopsis: This is the story of Daphne Shipley and Rickie – Dylan Shipley’s roommate/landlord. And there’s so much happening here. Rickie has suffered a mysterious injury leaving him with partial amnesia. Daphne has a psycho ex that’s threatening her and has forced her to relocate to another university. So, naturally, Daphne’s hesitant to trust again and Rickie has issues for miles because of his amnesia. Their growing affection and Rickie’s persistence is just super sweet reading. I must admit, I was really impatient for them to solve their respective “problems” (a.k.a. getting revenge and recovering memories),…

    Release date: July 13th Merik, a merman who’s trying to solve a case with missing mer people, falls for the ex of the guy he suspects being behind all the disappearances. But when he’s started their relationship on a lie, can it ever become the real thing? But instead of coming clean to Jody, Merik’s choice is taken from him when some of the ex’s goons forces Merik back to the sea. How can Jody and Merik ever be together if Merik doesn’t have his legs?  Confession: I’m not particularly fond of mermen. I adore shifter books, but my taste is apparently quite conservative when it comes to what shapeshifting…

    Blood Winter by S.J. Coles

    This is not your average vampire read. In a very good way. I’d say it’s quite unique, with vampires being way more alien and predatory, ruled by their instincts to feed and survive. They’re not savages, but this depiction certainly adds more complexity to the story. Synopsis: Vampires, or heamophiles as they’re called here, have revealed themselves to the human public and tries to integrate into society. The main character, Alec, is somewhat of a recluse, staying away from social events and people in general. And he certainly never expected to attend a blood party where haemophile blood – the most exclusive drug available – is offered as the ultimate…
