About WICKED CHARM

Nothing good comes from living in the Devil’s swamp.
Willow Bell thinks moving to the Okefenokee area isn’t half bad, but nothing prepares her for what awaits in the shadows of the bog.
Girls are showing up dead in the swamp. And she could be next.
Everyone warns Willow to stay away from Beau Cadwell―the bad boy at the top of their suspect list as the serial killer tormenting the small town.
But beneath his wicked, depthless eyes, there’s something else that draws Willow to him.
When yet another girl he knew dies, though, Willow questions whether she can trust her instincts…or if they’re leading to her own death.

Though Gran’s land is mostly wet, there’s solidness, too. My eyes trace the long path that cuts the property between Gran and Mr. Cadwell in half. I’m expecting to see nature—the kinds of birds Dad and Mom study, snakes, grass, and forever sky—the same things I’ve seen every morning since moving here with Dad and Mom to help Gran, who’s ailing but doesn’t like to admit it.
I get halfway down the path with my stare before my eyes snag on something. A serving spoon falls from my hand with a clatter into the sink.
“Who,” I whisper, “is that?”
Across the way stands a boy. He’s staring at me, wearing a twisted grin like he knows me. The wind ruffles his depths-of-the-ocean black hair. He’s wearing a dark shirt and dark jeans, and I cannot tear my eyes from his.
Gran hobbles over and looks out the window. “What is he doing so close to our side?”
“You know him?” I ask.
I can’t stop staring out the old weathered screen.
“Hell right, I do. Grandson of the evil next door. Trouble in living form. Someone oughta hand that boy a Bible. Change his life forever and ever, amen.”
Gran curses a lot. “Hell” is her favorite word.
“Hell, you’d better look away first,” Gran says. “B’fore he snares you for good.”
I wonder if she’s right. I want to look away first. Okay, that’s a lie. I don’t want to look away at all.
“Mother!” Dad’s voice enters the room a moment before he does. “Did I just hear you cursing around Willow again?”
I rip my eyes away—though it’s hard—to see Dad clad in shorts and a T-shirt, ready for another day of observation. He and Mom are ornithologists, scientists who study birds. Mom follows Dad into the kitchen and takes a seat at the table; her strawberry-blond hair is braided and slipped through the adjustable hole in her hat. Dad’s hair is like Gran’s and mine, his eyes, too. Mom’s eyes are blue, and I’m secretly glad mine are not. I enjoy being like Gran.
“It’s not good to curse around her; she’s only seventeen,” Dad continues.
In Florida, Dad and Mom studied birds so much that I hardly ever saw them. Here’s no different, but at least now I have Gran to keep me company.
“Doesn’t matter, and you know it,” Gran says. “A heart is a heart is a heart. A few words here and there won’t change that.”
My stare goes to the window again. The boy is gone.
“Quit looking for that boy, you hear?” Gran says, knowing.
“I’m not looking for him,” I reply. But I’m a lying liar.
“What boy?” Dad asks.
I join him and Mom at the table.
“No one,” my lying self answers.
“Stop thinking about him,” Gran says.
“I’m not!” I say, frustrated. But only because she knows me so well that I can’t hide myself from her.
Clearly Gran isn’t a fan. We drop it and eat our breakfast, Dad and Mom jabbering about some new species of bird they think they’ve discovered. Gran watching me like a hawk. And me wondering about the gorgeous black-souled, trouble-in-living-form grandson of the evil next door.

The Drakes and friends will be tested when an infestation of deadly vampires threatens Violet Hill.
Lucy’s cousin Christabel has come to live in Violet Hill, and adjusting to the difference between life in a small mountain town and her home in the city is difficult enough. The strict curfew that Lucy’s parents enforce is the worst part. Something really dangerous couldn’t possibly happen in this tiny town.
But Christabel has noticed some mysterious happenings, and it seems like Lucy, her boyfriend Nicholas and his brother Connor are all in on a secret that Christabel doesn’t understand—one that seems deadly serious. Although she won’t admit it, Christabel would love to be in on any secret with Connor Drake. But when she is kidnapped by the ruthless Hel-Blar vampires, Christabel must cause more and more trouble in Violet Hill, Lucy and Connor finally fill Christabel in on all the undead drama. Together, they must find a way to stamp out the Hel-Blar for good.
My Review: After reading this book, I’m back into this series. After reading the last book, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to jump back into the series. 
Right now Lucy is a cool chick who goes to school and happens to be the only human there too. She can kick butt and just happens to be dating one of the Drake boys. Yup, right now all is good, except for the Hel-Blar make their way to Violet Hill and threatens everything. 
During what was supposed to be a good night on the beach, it ended up being anything but that. Lucy and her cousin Christabel are off to the beach to have a good night. Lucy with her boyfriend and Christabel hopefully without a book. It all goes south when there is an attack. 
As the story goes on, things begin to heat up. Another Drake boy possibly falling for a human, a kidnapping, secrets revealed. It ended perfectly with you wanting more. I will definitely be diving into the next book soon!

Weekly Spotlight – Amber House

Amber House
“I was sixteen the first time my grandmother died
. . .”


Sarah Parsons has never seen Amber House, the grand Maryland estate that’s been
in her family for three centuries. She’s never walked its hedge maze nor found
its secret chambers; she’s never glimpsed the shades that haunt it, nor hunted
for lost diamonds in its walls.


But all of that is about to change. After her grandmother passes away, Sarah
and her friend Jackson decide to search for the diamonds–and the house comes
alive. She discovers that she can see visions of the house’s past, like the
eighteenth-century sea captain who hid the jewels, or the glamorous
great-grandmother driven mad by grief. She grows closer to both Jackson and a
young man named Richard Hathaway, whose family histories are each deeply
entwined with her own. But when the visions start to threaten the person she
holds most dear, Sarah must do everything she can to get to the bottom of the
house’s secrets, and stop the course of history before it is cemented forever.

Amber House: Neverwas

“I was sixteen the second time I had my first
kiss….”


At the end of AMBER HOUSE, Sarah made a choice that transformed everything–and
now she must choose it all again.


Things are very different–better–for Sarah and her family: her Aunt Maggie
grew up; her parents are happily married; her grandmother died after a long,
productive and respected life. But other things are different too, and not for
the better.

After growing up in the free country of the Pacific Northwest, Sarah Parsons
has settled in at Amber House, the stately Maryland home that’s been in her
family for generations. But the world surrounding the House feels deeply wrong
to Sarah. It’s a place where the colonists lost the 1776 Insurrection, where
the American Confederation of States still struggles with segregation, and
where Sarah is haunted by echoes of a better world that she knows never
existed.


Her friend Jackson shares these visions of a different world–and together,
they manage both to remember the way things ought to be, and to plan a daring
mission that will reset the universe once again. Sarah must figure out what has
changed, and why, and how she can fix it–how she can find her way to another otherwhen

Breaking the Ice

Breaking the Ice
by Julie Cross
Book: Juniper Falls #2
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pub Date: December 2017
Genre: New Adult
Format: ARC
Source: Publisher
Book LinksGoodreads  Amazon  Book Depository
The second book in the Juniper Falls series from NY Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Julie Cross, perfect for fans of Miranda Kenneally and Abbi Glines.
Haley Stevenson seems like she’s got it all together: cheer captain, “Princess” of Juniper Falls, and voted Most Likely to Get Things Done. But below the surface, she’s struggling with a less-than-stellar GPA and still reeling from the loss of her first love. Repeating her Civics class during summer school is her chance to Get Things Done, not angst over boys. In fact, she’s sworn them off completely until college.
Fletcher Scott is happy to keep a low profile around Juniper Falls. He’s always been the invisible guy, warming the bench on the hockey team and moonlighting at a job that would make his grandma blush. Suddenly, though, he’s finding he wants more: more time on the ice, and more time with his infuriatingly perfect summer-school study partner. 
But leave it to a girl who requires perfection to shake up a boy who’s ready to break all the rules.
My Review: Loved the second book! This time its all about Haley and Fletcher. 
  
Haley is the princess, top cheerleader, she seems to have it all and she would if she didn’t have to be in summer school. Yep, her grades aren’t as stellar as she is. But she sure can get Fletcher’s attention by just the tap of her pen. Perhaps that would teach Fletcher not to attend class hungover. 
It was never Fletcher’s plan to get close to Haley. He was going to put in a good word for his cousin. Next thing you know, Fletcher wants more than just being her partner in class. As they learn more about each other, their flame starts to grow and its undeniable what they have. 
As I’ve read these two books, the characters only get better. I love how realistic they are so that many people can relate and fall in love with the characters and story even more.
I cannot wait until the next one!

The Inheritance


The Inheritance Mika Lane
Publication date: February 6th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance

Life was good. I was tending bar, making enough to get by, paying my rent, and enjoying the occasional cocktail with my best friend gay boyfriend, Matty. And then I got the call. One of my customers had passed. The one who we nicknamed “Grandpa,” who’d watch us for hours from his seat at the bar, sucking on the same beer, never leaving a tip.
For some reason the old coot left me his estate. Huh? He looked like the last person in the world to have an “estate.” Well, did your mother ever tell you not to judge a book by its cover?
And thanks to good old Grandpa, it looks like I may never have to work again.
But of course there’s a catch. There’s always a catch. I only get Grandpa’s money if I’m 25 years old (check), and married (not checked; not by a landslide). And–I only have 30 days to pull this off.
I didn’t see how I could make it happen, until four eligible bachelors waltzed into my life. Then, I had a whole different set of problems…

About RECOVERED (Coming 3/27/18):

It was hate at first sight…

Affton

I hated Cable James McCaffrey.

He was entitled, spoiled, a user…and an addict.

He was out of control and didn’t bother trying to hide it.

He had everything anyone could want but still seemed miserable and lost.

Every move he made, every mistake he stumbled his way through, rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn’t stop myself from trying to save him from himself when no one else would. In the sweltering heat of the summer, Cable taught me that having it all means nothing if you can’t have the one thing you want more than anything else.

Cable

I was obsessed with Affton Reed.

She was rigid, uptight, and no fun. There was something about her innate goodness that called to me.

She acted like she was above all the normal faults and failures that clung to the rest of us like the scent of smoke after a fire.

I was infatuated with her, but that didn’t stop me from acting like she didn’t exist.

In the scorching heat of summer, Affton taught me that there is always a way back from the brink of despair. She showed me that the trick to having it all was realizing that it was already there, in my hands. All I had to do was hold onto it.

The road to recovery is full of twists and turns no matter who is in the driver’s seat.
