An emotional love story that follows the touch-and-go relationship of Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.

Jennifer L. Armentrout’s WHITE HOT KISS Release Day Launch- Excerpt and GIVEAWAY!

ABOUT WHITE HOT KISS:

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Elena’s Musings: Why we read…

reading quote

A few months ago, I came across this beautiful article on the Huffington post website, which reports an exctract from the book “Why I read” by Wendy Lesser. I love how the author talks about the reasons why book lovers like reading so much, and why reading is such an important activity. So it got me thinking about the reasons why I read, something I’d never done before.

There’s no doubt about the fact that reading is my passion. Since when I learned how to read when I was little, I’ve always carried a book with me and I still do so, no matter where I go. I feel incomplete if I don’t have a book with me..Furthermore, if I had to choose between watching a TV show or reading a book? I’d definitely choose the latter option. So I believe that “being a bookwarm” is written in my DNA, but I’d never really thought about the reason why I love reading so much.

LOVE, YOUR CONCIERGE by Jessica Ingro RELEASE BLITZ Teasers and GIVEAWAY!

a love

Title: Love, Your Concierge

Author: Jessica Ingro

Release Date: February 25, 2014

Love, Your Concierge Goodreads link:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18624973-love-your-concierge

Synopsis:

Organization – that’s what I do. Control – it’s my middle name.

Hello. I’m Elizabeth – your personal concierge. My job is to play fairy godmother to the rich and famous.

The universal rulebook may say to never mix business with pleasure, but its author never worked for Grant Morgan, my sexy and brooding client. As a top attorney in Manhattan, Grant is used to calling the shots and dominating everything he touches. He also changes girlfriends as often as I pick up his dry cleaning. A part of me still wishes I could let him command my body and take me in ways I’ve never imagined, though.

One moment of weakness is all it takes to change everything forever.

Addicted – I can’t get enough of him. Consumed – He’s all I think and dream about.

The book has officially been thrown out the window. I’m in love and completely terrified. With lines blurred, I find myself lying, cheating and stealing to protect myself from being hurt. But my choices affect more than just me and now I’m not so sure what I’m trying to protect myself from.

Will love be enough to erase all I’ve done? Or have I made the biggest mistake of all?
