Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been head over heels in love with her little sister.

Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen books comes WATERFALL, a novel about love, betrayal, and epic consequences—a world-altering tale told by a girl whose tears have the power to raise the lost continent of Atlantis. This second novel in the Teardrop series is intensely romantic, with strong, hot main characters caught up in a thrilling fantastical love triangle. For readers who love Lauren Kate and the worlds of Alyson Noël, P. C. Cast, Maggie Stiefvater, and Veronica Rossi.

Eureka’s tears have flooded the earth, and now Atlantis is rising, bringing with it its evil king, Atlas. Eureka is the only one who can stop him, but first she must learn how to fight. She travels across the ocean with Cat, her family, and Ander, the gorgeous and mysterious Seedbearer who promises to help her find Solon, an enigmatic lost Seedbearer who knows how to defeat Atlas.

Once on land, Eureka is taunted by gossipwitches, a group of displaced Atlantean sorceresses, and ambushed by locals struggling to survive amid the destruction her tears have wrought. And she feels no closer to facing Atlas or saving the world when Solon lets slip that love is Ander’s weakness, and that any affection he feels toward her makes him age faster.

Trying to make sense of the dark world her sorrow has created, Eureka receives startling insight from an enchanted pond. Her bewildering reflection reveals a soul-crushing secret: if she’s strong enough, Eureka can draw on this knowledge to defeat Atlas—unless her broken heart is just what he needs to fuel his rising kingdom...

In Waterfall, Eureka has the chance to save the world. But she’ll have to give up everything—even love.

Natalie Pepper thinks she can just be friends with CJ, the man of her dreams. But after seeing him every day at work – and after he lays it all on the line – it becomes pretty clear that something’s gotta give. She’d admit to herself, and to him, that all she really wants is him…if she wasn’t so afraid of losing the best job she’s ever had (and the life it has made possible).

At least she’s got her friends to distract her. Lulu Rossi is an unorthodox and unpredictable spitfire of a girl who has a habit of saying whatever’s on her mind. And while that attribute entertains friends and intrigues her new boyfriend, Andrew, it might be the one thing that stops their relationship from moving forward. Lulu has unintentionally entered the world of Upper East Side royalty, as her ER doctor boyfriend turns out to be the pedigreed heir to an old money fortune – one that is watched over by his manipulative and exceedingly judgmental mother, Elizabeth “Tippy” Barton.

Natalie’s insane supervisor worsens the situation at work when her own man troubles result in a new “no fraternization” policy, and CJ finally gives up and begins to look for other opportunities. Natalie is forced to decide what is important to her for once and for all. Will it be CJ or her job?

Lulu must prove her worth to Andrew’s family – or make him see that the only person whose opinion really matters is his.

Cover Reveal - One Last Song

Monday, 27 October 2014
Those of you who have followed this blog for some time may remember me raving about a book called Secret For A Song a while ago. The book was then picked up by a literary agent, got a book deal with Grand Central Publishing and after some tweaks (including a new title and apparently new ending) will be releasing early next year. I am very excited to be sharing the cover today and I LOVE it, it is different to the original but still has the same style and feel.


Synopsis

I was seven when I swallowed my first needle.

My mom freaked out and rushed me to the emergency room.

She stayed by my side all night.

I never wanted it to end.

When you spend your whole life feeling invisible-when your parents care more about deals and deadlines than they do about you-you find ways of making people take notice. Little things at first. Then bigger. It's scary how fast it grows. Then one day something happens that makes you want to stop. To get better. To be better. And for the first time, you understand what it's like to feel whole, happy . . . loved. For the first time, you love someone back.

For me, that someone was Drew.


One Last Song will be released on January 13th. For now you can add it to Goodreads!

Review of Gifted

Thursday, 16 October 2014
On the theme of NA paranormal, here is a book I picked up for free on Amazon a while back.

Synopsis

A world exists beyond our sight, just within reach. Normal everyday people have gifts given to them from birth. Evelyn is recruited to live in a community of similarly gifted people who use their powers to work for various companies and governments to recover lost items and steal important information. In the midst of the secret missions, Evelyn uncovers a secret that could destroy the community she has come to love, or the country that she calls home. In a battle between good and evil, how does one decide which path is right or wrong? Evelyn must uncover the truth and decide her own fate.

Review

I really enjoyed the story overall as it felt refreshingly unique.  The premise resembles X-Men in that abilities vary from person to person and everyone lives together on a campus while they attend classes to refine their gifts.  The deviation is that it isn't a mutation per say as there is a long history of gifted individuals in some cases, such as the heroine's, and it is more magic than science.  They have simply existed in isolation until an individual takes it upon himself to gather them up and put them to work.

The synopsis gives away the main conflict but it is clear rather quickly that these assignments may not be for the good of mankind or even the team members assigned to them.  The key is that while the heroine gets hints throughout, they are dismissed completely until near the end of the book.  The primary plot of the book revolves around Evelyn finding her place in this new environment, developing her gifts, and developing a relationship with a certain handsome man.

One of the cool twists in this story is that gifted individuals are able to see magical elements of the world that those who are merely human cannot.  So there is a little whimsy in the fact that there are things such as mermaids and huge winged predators they encounter on occasion without resorting to a whole fantasy world.

The romance was sweet and chaste.  There are a few action scenes interspersed with a lot of downtime as the heroine undergoes training but training itself presents a few conflicts so it keeps it from losing too much momentum.  I would say that the overall emphasis of the story is on the development of the heroine and not on some plot to take down an evil mastermind.

There were quite a few typographical errors so you may want to avoid this if that is a pet peeve of yours but if you can manage grammar blinders, it's a good read overall.  This is also the first book in a series, which has yet to be written, but the ending doesn't leave you with a cliffhanger.  It ties up things rather nicely but provides a clear direction as to what their next task will be.

Cover Reveal - Inspire by Cora Carmack

Thursday, 25 September 2014
I LOVE Cora Carmack and I am also a fan of NA Paranormal novels so I am very excited for this book. The cover is also incredibly beautiful so I am very happy to be sharing it today.


Synopsis

To inspire.

As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.
Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.

Review of Maybe Someday

Thursday, 18 September 2014
Synopsis

At twenty-two years old, aspiring musician Sydney Blake has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her good friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter cheating on her with Tori—and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

Review

The synopsis fails to mention the key conflict in this book which is a love triangle.  I know there are a lot of people out there who groan at the mention of a love triangle but this was not your typical one.  The love triangle revolves around the hero of the story rather than the heroine and the author painfully conveys the struggle of developing feelings for someone while still being in love and in a relationship with someone else.  The girlfriend is not some catty wench that doesn't deserve the hero.  In fact, she is a charming, sympathetic character whose inner strength is nothing short of remarkable.

This is not a story about cheating, for the most part, as the heroine has personal experience with cheating and refuses to be that type of person.  There are some lines that are crossed but not in a manner where you would lose respect for either of the characters.  The characters are pretty close to saintly, considering the circumstances, but it doesn't mean that mistakes aren't made and that there are no painful ramifications associated with those mistakes.

This is a very memorable story as there are a lot of elements that are unique.  As song writing is a key component of the book, it is awesome that the author collaborated with a musician to have songs recorded.  Song lyrics don't always translate to writing the same way as when they are sung so the soundtrack really brings them to life.  And... they don't suck.  The title track has been stuck in my head for days as the chorus is both emotionally moving and catchy.

Waiting On Wednesday - Apolonia

Wednesday, 17 September 2014
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows readers to share the books that they are most looking forwards to reading.

This week the book I have chosen to feature is Apolonia by Jamie McGuire.




Title: Apolonia

Author: Jamie McGuire

Series: Standalone (I think)

Publication Date: October 6th

Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK



Synopsis

“They killed me, but I survived.”

Three years after Rory Riordan foiled her own murder, she still trusts no one. Not Dr. Z, the eccentric college professor who has taken her under his wing, not Benji, the endearing, attractive classmate who insists on following her around, and certainly not Cy, the beautifully dark and mysterious boy who sits on the first row in Dr. Z’s Astrobiology class and asks far too many questions.

When Rory witnesses Cy being abducted by soldiers in the middle of the night, she finds herself submersed in a world that holds even more secrets than she could imagine--even darker secrets than her own.

From #1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire, experience the perfect combination of her bestselling books Providence & Beautiful Disaster. This New Adult Sci-Fi Romance is an action-packed, whiplash-inducing roller coaster ride. Page after page, this unpredictable, dark and sexy nail biter will keep readers guessing until the very end!


Thoughts

I have loved this authors books for many years now and so far I haven't read one that wasn't amazing. The premise for this book sounds really good and I'd be excited for it no matter who the author was but it being Jamie McGuire makes me excitement unbearable!

What are you waiting for this week?

Introducing NA Paranormal Month

Monday, 15 September 2014
As you know I am a loud and proud supporter of the NA category and I love to support everything it has to offer. Contemporary romance novels completely dominate NA and have for a while now but MY personal favourites are the paranormal novels. To help support these amazing books and the authors that write them I have decided to run a NA Paranormal Month throughout November here on Bookish Treasures. I hope to fill the month with lots of reviews, author interviews, guest posts, excerpts and more as well as a few individual giveaways and a huge bumper giveaway.

If you are an author of NA paranormal novels interested in participating please let me know as soon as possible as going off past events I have ran I am expecting spots to fill up fast. It will be roughly first come first serve but not entirely as I want a good mix of known and as yet unknown authors as well as a variety of books and post types. You need to have at least one NA paranormal book either currently available or releasing within a few months.

We are probably going to have a post a day as well as lots of fun stuff happening on facebook. We cant wait for November and hope you feel the same!

Mini Reviews - Slide, Kiya: Hope Of The Pharoah, Yours To Uncover

Thursday, 11 September 2014
Mini reviews are a new little thing here at Bookish Treasures. You see, sometimes it is hard to find a lot to say about a book. Maybe it is hard to write a long review without including spoilers or maybe the book didn't really inspire us and we don't have much to say. Sometimes it might even be that for whatever reason we were unable to write a review after finishing the book and though we can still remember our feelings for the book easily, we can't remember the details clearly enough for a long review. Or maybe it is just a very short book so there isn't much to talk about! Whatever the reason, we still want to share our thoughts on these books with you so expect the occasional bunch of mini-reviews!

Slide synopsis


This book drew me in right away with the heroine’s emotional plight.  Evangeline is basically shipped off to her grandparents following a profound tragedy and has now been recalled to her former life.  She is exceedingly wealthy but she doesn’t come across as spoiled.  In fact, she is quite relatable.  She is not a blushing virgin or a complete commitment-phobe like some characters.  She is real, with a real sexual appetite and real insecurities and yet is remarkably pragmatic about things.  The hero, Ryan, is portrayed as the typical, sexy womanizer who finds himself intrigued but it works.  His transformation is gradual and his reasons for emotional distance are clearly explained.  This isn’t a case of instalove where the hero sudden turns into a stalker.  Sure, he makes one hell of an effort but it doesn’t come across as creepy or implausible. 
 
I can’t say I was thrilled with the direction things took as I am not a huge fan of women hiding certain things but I can’t argue much with a happy ending and I enjoyed the emotional ups and downs the book took to reach it.

Kiya: Hope Of The Pharoah synopsis


This is such a unique, individual and special New Adult book. It is set in ancient Egypt and follows Kiya, an 18 year old girl who becomes one of the Pharoah's many wives. This book certainly isn't your typical romance though it does have some romance in it. Kiya loves her husband in a way though it is more respect, friendship and the desire to do right by him than true romantic love.

I loved that there was so much to the story and all of the characters have depth. This book has such an epic feel and promises great things from the rest of the series.

This book held a lot of potential but it was just much too rushed - and no I'm not talking about the actual length of the book. This book has insta-love to the extreme, think having sex after sharing pretty much nothing more than a sentence or two, declaring eternal love close to immediately after and then trying to get married all in the span of a day or two.
 
The synopsis made it seem like this book would be so much more exciting but it was a little bit of a let down. This is not one of the better Sci-Fi Romances I have read.

Waiting On Wednesday - King Tomb by Scarlett Dawn

Wednesday, 10 September 2014
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows readers to share the books that they are most looking forwards to reading.

This week the book I have chosen to feature is King Tomb by Scarlett Dawn, book 3 in the Forever Evermore series.

**Spoilers - Be warned that this is the conclusion to a series and the synopsis does include some slight spoilers**

You can read my review of book 1 here - Review of King Hall



Title: King Tomb

Author: Scarlett Dawn

Series: Forever Evermore #3

Publisher: Escape Publishing

Publication Date: 8th October

Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK


Synopsis

From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spell-binding conclusion to the best-selling first Forever Evermore trilogy.

Queen Shifter, Lily Ruckler, has found solace in brutal warfare. Her bloodied fists and bared fangs fill the holes left in her memory, the blank spaces that leave her soul aching and empty. Her only pleasure is in blood; her only salvation is the relationship she has with her infant child, the baby of unknown origins who brings her solace and stability.

When Elder Harcourt summons Lily and her protector Antonio back to the United States, Lily thinks nothing unusual about the change of location. But a standard reconnaissance mission leaves her trapped inside King Zeller’s private quarters, and at his mercy. Surprise attraction rapidly turns to a battle of wills and an intense power struggle that leaves no clear victor but plenty of resentment.

They are not allowed to nurse their wounds. In order to win the war against the Commoners, the King Vampire and Queen Shifter must work together. It should be easy. The war is turning, the battle is deadly, and both Lily and Ezra love the cold cleanliness of combat. But their chance meeting has led to more than an unlikely alliance. Secrets have a way of surfacing, especially on a torn-up battlefield, and Lily and Ezra are about to re-learn all they cannot remember. If they can’t control their emotions and responses, it will be to their own ruin and the destruction of everything around them.


My Thoughts

This series is definitely right at the top of my favourites for NA Fantasy Romance and due to the somewhat dramatic ending to book 2 I have been desperate for this book since last year. Luckily it releases reasonably soon so I don't have much longer to wait :)

Cover Reveal - Midnight Kiss

Friday, 5 September 2014
As you likely already know I am a huge supporter of NA paranormal novels and today I am very excited to be revealing the cover for Midnight Kiss - a collection of 4 previously unreleased NA PNR stories by 4 amazingly talented authors.


Synopsis

This Halloween, prepare to be haunted by a kiss…

Midnight Kiss is a limited edition collection of four BRAND NEW, NEVER RELEASED novellas, all set in New Orleans on Halloween night.
AFTER MIDNIGHT by Sarra Cannon
From the outside, Becca Goldberg looks like any normal freshman girl at Tulane, but she’s been keeping a terrible secret. She’s really Allison Moore—a young witch from Peachville hiding out from an evil coven of witches known as the Order of Shadows. She thinks she is safe until an unexpected accident occurs. Now, she only has until midnight on Halloween until her identity is discovered.
She must turn to the hottest, most elusive guy on campus for help. Will he help save her? Or will her life come crashing down around her after midnight?
THE MIDNIGHT TEST by Juliana Haygert
Being the weakest witch of her generation, nineteen-year-old Hazel is convinced she's supposed to live a normal, human life—except for the occasional ghost hunting. When Hazel moves to New Orleans, the most powerful witch coven in the world grants her a chance to join them, but only if she passes a dangerous test on Halloween night. Everything is going fine until mysterious Sean steps in Hazel’s way, putting her entire test at risk.
Will she be able to ace the test and keep them both alive at the same time?
SEDUCTION'S KISS by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:
1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper.
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire’s nest mates.
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero.
Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.
KISS OF AWAKENING by Jennifer Snyder
With one kiss, everything will change...
When a mysterious letter arrives from her estranged mother, twenty-one year old Kenna Blake and her best friend, Bree, make a trip to New Orleans hoping for a little Halloween fun and to get away. The mystifying Crescent City has something else in store for her though.
Cryptic messages, a hot tour guide, and a new sense Kenna can't seem to explain are just the beginning of this eye opening trip. Will Kenna accept what awakens with in her or will she crumble under its reality?
