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?

My Thoughts on the Book

I really loved this book, it is another beautiful story about strength and healing. There is a secret that I figured out pretty early and I wish it was more of a shock but how it came about and why was just as important and what I was waiting for. This is the second Mia Sheridan book I have read and she is quickly becoming one of my go to authors.

Don't Look Back

13418925Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

My Thoughts on the Book

4.5 Stars and Wow, wow and Wow! This story was so good and had so many twists and turns I was guessing the whole time. This story has elements of Pretty Little Liars and Mean Girls but so much better!!!!!! This is a YA thriller and our girl Samantha finds herself alone in the woods with no memory of herself or her life before and her best friend is missing and she does not even remember her. The story unfolds beautifully and the ending was great and caught be off guard. I do think the ending was a bit quick and would have like another chapter after the mystery was solved to clean up a few things but I still completely loved it!

My Thoughts on the Book

This is one of those books that are hard to describe, it is a suspense but it is also a romance but not a typical romance in any sense of the word. This book is not a long book but it is a book that you will read slowly because every word, every thought, every conversation is important and you will not want to skim any of. This book pulls at your heart but teaches you how to live. This book will leave you emotionally drained but content at the same time. The story is masterfully written and unfolds if a way that is fascinating and completely engrossing. Is there a HEA? Yes, no I am still not sure. Just like the rest of the book it is anything buy typical and at the same time beautiful.

As the menacing force that has stalked Laryssa for years finally catches up to her, she submits, putting her life into the hands of the dominant vampire who offers his protection.

Deep in the heart of New Orleans, they embark on a perilous adventure, forced to search for an ancient sacrificial relic that they hope will save their lives.

After hundreds of years of denying himself love, will Léopold bond to the woman who has begun to crack the impenetrable shell around his heart? As evil draws near, will Laryssa survive the demon that has come to take her soul?

Warning: This book contains several erotic love scenes and is intended for adult readers only.

My Thoughts on the Book

Kym's books just keep getting better and better. I really enjoy this series and the writing has improved with every book. This is Leopold's story and we really get to know and understand him better in this book and feel his pain from his past. Laryssa is a human that is special in her own right and helps to heal Leopold and he helps her. This book is very sexy and not for the young ones but the story is great and the love rings true. We get to see all of the characters from the past books as well so that was an added bonus for me!

The King


Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?

My Thoughts on the Book

I seem to have a love hate relationship with these books. I loved the first 5 (yes even the 5th one) Hated #6 and have been ok with the rest. What I have hated with the rest has been the same for almost all of them. Too many story lines in one book that have nothing to do with the main plot of the book. I am all for setting up for future books but it does not have to be done will full chapters especially when they do not link to the main story in any way. It is the same with THE KING. I love love loved the Beth and Wrath story I really did and I was so happy with how all of that played out but I had to wade through so many other chapters to get there it was almost not worth it at times. I also thought we were going to solve the John/Darius issue is this book and there would have been a few places in the story it would have worked perfectly so I thought I liked the chapters with John in them ( ok I did, but) she did not address it and just left it hanging. I thought I was done with this series after the last one but when I saw that this book was going to be about Wrath and Beth I had to give the series another try. I am glad I did because I fell in love with Wrath all over again but I am not sure I want to continue with the book after this one. This would have been a 6 star book for me if she focused only on Wrath and Beth the the other plots that were link to them. The rest could have waited or been placed in novellas to set us up for the next book.
