A is for Abstinence ( V is for Virgin 2) by Kelly Oram

Title:A is for Abstinence (V is for Virgin 2)
Author: Kelly Oram
Published: May 12, 2014
Number of Pages: 204

Blurb from Goodreads:Six-time Grammy Award-winning musician Kyle Hamilton has it all—money, fame, talent, good looks, and a job he loves. His only regret in life: walking away from a certain notorious virgin because he was too prideful, stubborn, and even afraid to give her the only thing she asked of him—his abstinence.

Four years and a broken heart later, Kyle realizes that sex isn’t everything, and he suddenly can’t stop thinking about the girl that got away. Virgin Val Jensen got under his skin like no one else ever has. He wasn’t ready for her then, but things are different now. He’s grown up, he’s learned a few things, and he’s finally figured out exactly what he wants, or, rather, who he wants.

Kyle Hamilton wants a do-over, and this time he’s willing to do—or not do—whatever it takes.

Review:  So we all know Kyle from V is for Virgin, but this is an improved version of him. Now granted he was a major douche in the first book, however, he does  make up for it here in the best way possible. He is out to get what he wants and he wants Val( who royally annoyed me during some moments of this book, kind of wanted to shake the girl a little). 
     This is definitely a novel for the hopeless romantics out there chasing the HEA, and it simply warned my little fangirl heart. Granted the plot wasn't exactly intense and hard to predict but it didn't matter to me because I chose this book for the closure, amazing banter  and super heated chemistry between Kyle and Val.

She smirked and shook her head. “New tricks. Same dog.”

It was impossible not to take her words as a challenge. I pushed her back until she was pinned against the door and leaned in close enough that our breaths mingled. Her eyes snapped wide the same way they always had whenever I’d invaded her personal space, and I watched, satisfied, as she sucked in a lung full of air and held it.

“That mentality will be your downfall this time around, Val.” I leaned in, letting my lips linger at her jawline for a moment too long before bringing them to her ear.

“Same old tricks,” I whispered. “New man.”

"Thoughts of you runnin’ through my head
Heart’s pumpin’ full speed ahead
Body’s screaming to get you in bed
Need you, want you, baby gotta be mine
Come to me girl, I’m done wastin’ time
You ask me to wait, don’t know if I can
Too scared to lose, I’m only a man
But I can’t let you go, can’t shut the door
Heart’s telling me you’re worth waiting for
The feel of your lips, hot breath on my skin
Touching you, touching me, I’d relish the sin
Let’s find a way for us both to win
Need you, want you, baby gotta be mine
Come to me girl, I’m done wastin’ time
You ask me to wait, don’t know if I can
Too scared to lose, I’m only a man
But I can’t let you go, can’t shut the door
Heart’s telling me you’re worth waiting for
Forever I’ll wait, it’s drivin’ me mad
Driven by memories I’ve not yet had
Hangin’ on a promise of you and me
Hope springs eternal for things that could be
You ask me to wait, don’t know if I can
Too scared to lose, I’m only a man
But I can’t let you go, can’t shut the door
Heart’s telling me you’re worth waiting for
You ask me to wait, don’t know if I can
Too scared to lose, I’m only a man
Bring on the torture, forever and more
’Cause girl it’s true, you’re worth waiting for"

Don't know why you're still thinking get this book. Like right now. Shoo!
I'm handing over 5 very very well earned hearts by Kyle. ( Read the book you'll get the reference)

Opposition (Lux 5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Opposition (Lux 5)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published: August 5th 2014 by Entangled Teen
Number of Pages: 534

Blurb from Goodreads:Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Review:  What can I say? This was the perfect conclusion to a perfect series. I was a little scared to start this book simply because I was not ready to part ways with Daemon and Katy, Dee, Dawson Archer, and even the scary as all hell Luc. However, I am so glad I did. I really don't need to rant about the flawless execution of this book. I laughed,  I cried, I swooned and I fell in love with all the characters over again. 

“What the hell, man?” Dawson exploded, hands flying up. “I was on level sixty-nine of Candy Crush, you bastard. Do you know how hard that—?”
And then Daemon goes and says something sweet like...
And Katy says something badass like...

"I think you do like Archer, and you just don’t want to admit that you’re in the beginning stages of a bromance to end all bromances."

This book broke my feels in the best way possible and for that I give it

Leo ( A Sign of Love 1) by Mia Sheridan

Title: Leo ( A Sign of Love 1)
Author: Mia Sheridan
Published: November 27th 2013
Number of Pages: 191

Blurb from Goodreads:Evie and Leo met in foster care as children and formed a bond of friendship. As they grew, their bond turned to love, and they vowed to make a life together when they turned 18 and were no longer a part of the system.

When Leo unexpectedly gets adopted as a teen and he moves to another city, he promises Evie that he will contact her as soon as he gets there and come back for her in a few short years. She never hears from him again.

Now eight years later, in spite of the odds, Evie has made a life for herself. She has a job. She has friends. She's content. Then a man shows up out of the blue, claiming that her long lost love, Leo, sent him to check up on her. The attraction between them is undeniable. But, should she trust this sexy stranger? Or is he keeping a secret about what his connection to Leo is really all about and why Leo disappeared all those years ago?

New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

“The thing about falling in love so that no matter where you are when it happens, you can’t help but to color those moments with beauty, even if you’re in a location of ugliness. He made what would have been a place of nightmares into a place to dream.”

  This it the kind of book that has an intense plot, thought out and developed characters , some HOT sex and it's all put together with a neat little bow into a read that you just can't put down until you read the last page. This book grabs your heart and doesn't give it back until the last line on the last page.
  So let's start with Evie she is a caring, sweet and hardworking girl. She makes the best of what she has and doesn't mope about her life. It was so amazing to see her just appreciate what she has and not complain about what she doesn't.  This girl suffered so much yet she still manages to see the best in people and be a ray of sunshine. I just loved her.
Need I say more? Well yes I do actually. At first I wasn't sure I would like Jake he came on a little strong and Evie is just so innocent I would have strangled Jake if he broke her heart, but the more I read the more I fell in love with Jake. You could see his little cracks and flaws and you knew he was hiding something( Lauren I'm looking at you) but his vulnerability made his so lovable and his treatment of Evie he is such a perfect gentleman and he cares for her so much.
   I knew the huge plot twist that was coming but that doesn't even matter because  most of the tension was in waiting for Evie to figure it out and see what she's going to do about it.
  Now I am done talking and you need to be done reading this is a definite must read for those who appreciate a good romance.

OHHH and the flashbacks!!!! Be still me heart

Rapture ( The Elfin 2) by Quinn Loftis

Title: Rapture( The Elfin 2)
Author:Quinn Loftis
Published: December 25th, 2013
Kindle Edition

Blurb from Goodreads:Triktapic, the deadly dark elf assassin, has been restored by the Forest Lords to his rightful place as king of the Elven realm. Now, he must face his former comrades as he attempts to stop Lorsan, king of the dark elves, from enslaving the human race. Lorsan has already begun distributing Rapture, the irresistible drink that destroys those who unknowingly become addicted to it. Will Cassie, his Chosen, be able to give Trik the strength he needs to face his dark past?

Meanwhile, Cassie’s best friend, Elora, is in a fight for her own life. Elora, her mother, Lisa, and a small band of light elves have traveled deep into the dark elf realm in hopes of rescuing Cassie and Trik. But their mission quickly turns into a battle for their own lives as they are surrounded by Lorsan and his warriors. Though outnumbered ten to one, the humans and elves fight heroically. They fight for a King once lost, but now found. They fight for the human realm that doesn’t yet know it is in need of saving. They fight for love; a love that has already been discovered and a love that is waiting to be revealed. Despite their valiant efforts, the band is captured and held captive by the dark elf king.

The peaceful world that Cassie and Elora knew is long gone, shattered by their realization that elves walk secretly among them, and are bent on their destruction. Soon, each of the girls will be forced to choose her own path. Cassie must decide to which world she belongs and Elora must decide if she will fight for a warrior hell bent on keeping her from his side.

Two species, human and elf, stand on the precipice of war, united in one goal; shatter the dark elf king’s plan, and unite a divided race under the rule of the one true King

Review:  I have been painfully waiting for this book since I read Elfin, needless to say I did a little happy dance when  I saw that this book had been finally released. It was such an intense, fast paced and the same time romantic and toe curling read that this book didn't leave my hands until I was done.
   Cassie really is a great heroine and her innocence is  a breath of fresh air. I love her inner dialogue and I love her and Trik together.
  Trik, his love for Cassie is so amazing and he would literally burn the world down to save her. He's arrogant, hot, protective alpha male who really really really loves his mate. 
  This book has so many unexpected surprises some of which had me floored to say the least.
A definite must read
I give these sexy elves
