SPOTLIGHT: Whisper To Me by Christina Lee with Teaser, and Excerpt!!!

The release date is coming up quick for Whisper To Me by Christina Lee. You guys are going to FLOVE this story AND Kai. It’s my favorite book in the series, and I’ll be taking part in the blog tour. Seriously though, you don’t need to wait for my review…pre-order now, so you can have it bright and early to dive into on May 20th!

A hot and consuming New Adult romance about a wayward musician and the one girl who keeps him grounded…

At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for star athletes. No one at school knows that she’d had her heart ripped to shreds by her high school sweetheart, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle, and then abandoned her. No one knows the real Rachel Mattson—except one person…

Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that fateful night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.

Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Kai is willing to hide his feelings for her, just to have Rachel touch him again. After all, this is only a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But maybe it had been more all along.

Elena Reviews: Monster in His Eyes (Book 1) by JM Darhower




MIHEFRONTThe synopsis:

Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.

I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I’m thinking before I even do.

It’s alarming and alluring. It’s dark and deadly. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted but the last thing I truly need. Obsession.

It doesn’t take him long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it’s too late. He has secrets, secrets I can’t fathom, secrets that make it so I can’t walk away. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that’s both terrifying and thrilling. He’s a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.

I want to hate him.

Sometimes, I do.

But it doesn’t stop me from loving him, too.



My rating: 5+++++ glittering stars

5 +++ stars


My review:

“There’s something about you…something I’ve sought for a very long time. Something I’ve always wanted. And now that I’ve found it, I don’t know if I can let it go.”

Let me say that JM Darhower is one of the best Authors of this generation. Since I read the Sempre Series, I became completely fascinated by her sublime writing style and addicted to her characters and story lines. With Monster in His Eyes, she proves once again to be an Author that not only does write a story, but also she makes you FEEL it, in the real sense of the word.

I rarely add pluses to an already 5 star rating, but this novel deserves so much more than 5 stars. Monster in His Eyes is the kind of book that gives you a real book hangover, the kind of book you carry in your bag wherever you go, so you can sneak in a few pages whenever you get the chance. The kind of book that becomes an addiction. It’s the first instalment in the duology, and it’s different from the previous ones Darhower wrote, because it’s an adult and dark romance.
