~My 5*Review~

Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Forever In My Heart is book 3 in the My Heart series by Aleya Michelle. And what an awesome end to Kade and Roxy's journey! You cannot read Forever In My Heart without first reading Breaking My Heart (book 1) and Healing My Heart (book 2). 

Roxy and Kade have had an eventful time to get to where they are now, and things aren't looking like they're about to stay smooth now either! Can they face they're newest challenge together? Or will it prove to be too much? Will Roxy and Kade ever get a HEA?

After Kade's return in book 2 he knows he wants Roxy more than ever, and Roxy knows that Kade completes her. Determined to stay together and to face whatever life throws at them together, Kade and Roxy go on enjoying being young and in love. They have both developed and grown throughout these books, they have matured and become stronger characters. It's not just Kade and Roxy though, we see changes and development in Pete and Emma, Jemma and Dan and Jeremy too. And we meet some new faces too.

Aleya's writing has continued to strengthen with each and every book, and it continues to hold the power to captivate me and draw me into her characters world. Aleya has created and developed a world full of amazing characters who face real life issues. 

I found myself fully immersed in Kade and Roxy's lives. I felt their happiness, passion, anxiety, love and their desire! I could feel myself there alongside them, through everything they faced, and the whole time I was routing for them; cheering them on, hoping things would work out for them.

I have loved every minute of Forever In My Heart. Throughout their journey I have felt as though Kade and Roxy have become friends, and I'm sad that I've reached the end. I am really hoping that we may see some of these characters again! I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for any future work of Aleya's!!

If you've not read Forever In My Heart then I would definitely grab yourself a copy and if you haven't yet started this series then what are you waiting for? You need to meet Kade and Roxy and experience their lives, fall in love with them, shout at them, cry with them and cheer them on!!

Speak Of The Devil
(Demon Legacy #2)
by J.M. Gregoire

~Blurb~
Nearly half a year has passed since Asmodeus opened the gateway allowing an unknown number of demons to spill onto our plane of existence. A fatal standoff has left Dez on her own to hunt the stray demons down and send them back to Hell where they belong. Her life has become a never-ending cycle of violence and bloodshed, further tainted by a deepening depression and a longing for the person she had to leave behind.

When Dez receives an unexpected phone call, she makes her way to the northern Arizona desert to see an old friend. Upon arrival, there is a message waiting for her from beyond the grave, and she realizes before she can go any further, she must face the one thing she’s been dreading for months. To make matters worse, the message is meant to help her mission, but it forces Dez into an impossible choice.

Only Dez can decide which road to take, but will she be able to handle the consequences of her decision?

~Excerpt~

Michael opened his eyes to find himself in the middle of absolute nothingness.  There was no light, no colors, and no sound.  Just a spacious black void.  Although he could feel the solid ground beneath his feet, there was no surface to be seen.  He glanced at his surroundings, searching for something, anything, to give himself a sense of direction and found only more of the same.  He had no idea where he was or how he got there, and more importantly, he had no idea how to get back.  The soft whisper of a familiar voice right at his ear set every nerve in his body at ease.“Don’t panic.”  He quickly turned and came face-to-face with Deziree, and she was stunning.  When he’d arrived earlier in the evening, he noticed she looked exhausted.  It was prominent enough in her features and in the way she carried herself that it caught his attention, even through his hunger.  “Really, there’s nothing to worry about,” she assured him.“What is this?”“This,” she said, gesturing around them, “is hard to explain.  We are in the ether, but not dead.”  She slowly turned and surveyed the space around them as she continued.  “Coming here is something I believe came along with the progression of my demon abilities.”  She turned back to him.  “Do you remember the first time I met Asmodeus?  In that dream?  That’s what this is.  You and I are still in Arizona, laying in each other’s arms, and by now, you’re probably snoring.”“I don’t snore.”“You totally snore,” she scoffed, and then continued.  “It’s a dream state of sorts, but I am able to connect with you through it.  I honestly thought I could only do this with other demons, but here you are.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that you're a supernatural.  I don’t know for sure.  This is all still very new to me.  I haven’t exactly been practicing and it’s not like I have someone to turn to for lessons.”“You seem to have figured it out well enough,” he replied.  “So, is this what it looked like when you saw Asmodeus?  This whole black hole effect is a strange sensation.”  “No,” she answered, “this is just here.  I think I might be able to…”  Her words trailed off and she closed her eyes for a moment.  One minute they were standing in the middle of nothing, the next they were standing in front of the familiar plush leather couch, alone, in his living room.“Better?” she asked, a sly smile on her face.  “Yes, much better.”“And we’re completely alone,” she added, the smile turning mischievous.  Michael felt his teeth extend at the suggestion in her words.  He stepped forward, took her hands, and pulled them up around his neck as he tasted her mouth, their tongues dancing in an erotic rhythm.  Their kiss deepened with intensity and a small moan escaped from Dez.  Michael was reminded of the dream he had on New Year’s Eve and hoped this was not another small act of torture, compliments of his subconscious mind.  He pushed the thought back and ran his hands down her arms, down her sides, allowing his thumbs to briefly brush over her nipples before proceeding down to grasp the supple curves of her ass.  Before his hands could reach their final destination, the sound of someone not-so-quietly clearing their throat startled them both.  Michael spun around to see his brother staring back at him with a smile curling the edge of his lips.  He was so stunned it took him a moment to realize someone else was standing with Lucas.  Michael instantly recognized her as Natalia, the murdered records keeper for the covens.  Had he not been sent to investigate her death and seen pictures of her, he never would have known who she was, as they hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting while she was still alive.“You two really should get a room,” Lucas said as he took a step toward them.  Michael still stood there, stunned.  It took him a moment to gather himself enough to speak.

~Author Interview~

Do you have any plans to write a spin-off for Aberrant? 
Yes! I am currently working on an untitled project that is a prequel, spin-off. I haven't spoken much about it, but I will say there is plenty of action and a world to explore that we've barely touched in the Aberrant trilogy. 

What are you currently working on? 
I've got several writing projects underway. Forget Me Knot (Royal Reaper 2) is in edits right now with an expected Spring 2015 release. I'm also writing steamy adult fiction under the name Ravyn Rayne, which will be available this year as well. You can find those projects on Ravyn Rayne Reads

Do you have a full-time job? 
Writing and marketing my own novels is my full-time job. It involves far more than 40 hours a week, but I love it, so I don't mind.

~My 4.5* Review~

Disclaimer: I was given an e-copy of this book in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

This is my second flipped fairy tale by Starla Huchton, and I have again loved every page.

In Stillness of the Sky I met Jack(Jacqueline), a 16 year old girl. She's had a pretty rough upbringing; her mother left she was younger and Jack chose to stay with her father, her father is an abusive alcoholic. But even after all she's been through Jack is nothing but kind with everyone she meets.

After Jack overhears that her father owes money and that he is willing to hand her over to work off his debt, she decides that she has to leave; she also hopes that by leaving her father will to stop drinking in order to look after himself.

Jack sets off in search of... a new life? a sense of belonging? her mother? On this journey Jack meets many new people and learns a lot about herself and her family too, she makes some new and interesting friends and shows everyone kindness.

I really like how Starla Huchton has the ability to take a well known fairy tale and completely flip it, make it new but still recognizable. The world that Starla built within Stillness of the Sky to me felt real it was as if I could reach out and touch everything; the castle, the clouds and the characters too.

The story was fantastic from start to finish. It was captivating and I felt as though I was on the journey of self discovery with Jack and her friends too. The characters are great. They are well thought out and realistic. I loved Will, Ro and Jack so much. Jack's ability to remain kind hearted to everyone around her was astounding.

Stillness of the Sky is definitely a story laced with kindness, romance and hope. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I'm looking forward to seeing what Starla does next.
