Way Back Wednesday: My Favorite “First Book” in a Series

waybackwednesday

Way Back Wednesday is a Book Meme created by A Well Read Woman with the aim to write mini book reviews on books read in the past, that left a lasting impression.

When an author decided to write a series, I think the first book is crucial. First, it has to leave a long lasting impression to us–readers. Secondly, almost the same thing as the first one…it has to be something different. A story has to stand out and make us want to beg for more as soon as you flip the last page of the book. Sometimes, authors does not plan on writing a series at all but because the story was too beautiful, they just cannot stop from there. And the readers kept on asking for more.

Here are some of my few favorite “first book” in a series that I admit on shamelessly fangirling, begging and asking for more to the authors.lol Continue reading

Illustrated Temptations: By Any Other Name by J.M. Darhower

IMG_0006

Mafia stories? Forbidden love? Modern Romeo & Juliet? Italian families? There is no other name that comes into my mind when I hear those questions.

J.M. Darhower captures me everytime she writes.

By Any Other Name is no exception to her brilliant work!

A deadly rivalry.
Two families at war.
Nobody is safe, not even the innocent.
Especially the innocent.
Blood will be spilled.

Illustrated Temptations: Torture To Her Soul by J. M. Darhower

Torture To Her Soul (Monster in His Eyes #2) by the awesome J. M. Darhower was released 2 days ago. Like finally! The wait is over! Can I be any more excited?! I am squeeing at the top of my lungs because, oh boy! Was it good? NO! It’s fucking GREAT!!!

I was so glad to be on Naz’s head this time since it was written on his POV.

“Don’t say it unless you mean it…” ~Naz

I so mean it when I say you should pick up this series! I absofuckinglutely recommend this book and if you haven’t read book 1 yet—Monster in His Eyes, this is the right time because it’s a must that you begin with book 1 first.

I don’t have enough words to express how I LOVED Darhower’s style of writing. She’ll take you right in front of the scene like you’re there and not just reading and watching it from a far. I felt it. My emotions were stirred and pulled from the depth of my heart. That moment when you pause from reading but suddenly you’ll remember a scene out of nowhere because you are so drawn to the characters. It was a rollercoaster ride. The twist and turns of event has wrecked me. The heartache is devastating but I’m glad I get to experience. And the epic conclusion about Naz & Karissa’s story is just perfect.

I have always LOVED, LOVED, LOVED J. M. Darhower! And I mean it. I’ve read all her novels, and will read anything that she throws my way. Again, she just prove how great of an author she is.

Check out Elena’s 5 brilliant star rating for this book, but first, let me show you some scenes that will surely make you want to pick up the series now.

It’s dark and twisted; erotic and intense; and most especially not for the faint-hearted.

***You have been warned.***
