Look whats out today Targeted by Katie Reus

Oh my, not to shabby on the ab department :)

Hidden in plain sight…

Former Marine sniper and current NSA agent Jack Stone has a new face to go with his new identity. But he still has the same tortured memories—which include the woman he let get away years ago, when they were teenagers. Now his new assignment in Miami will put him so close to the woman he’s never been able to forget, he could reach out and touch her—if only she weren’t under suspicion.

When Sophie Moreno uncovers evidence linking the medical supply company she works for with arms smuggling—and worse—she doesn’t know who to turn to. After a shocking betrayal, she realizes the only person she can trust is a mysterious new person in the company—a man with hauntingly familiar eyes.

As Sophie questions her intense attraction to this man and Jack struggles not to blow his cover, the two of them must race against the clock to stop terrorists from killing scores of people—starting with them.

Look whats out today Perdition by Ann Aguirre

Alright, I'm having flash backs to The Riddick!  Hey this could be Jack's cousin :)  I love Sirantha Jax and let's face it Ann Aguirre has got the kick ass chick down.  The ultimate test of Darwin will soon comense LOL


The prison ship Perdition, a floating city where the Conglomerate’s most dangerous criminals are confined for life, orbits endlessly around a barren asteroid.

Life inside is even more bleak. Hailed as the Dread Queen, inmate Dresdemona “Dred” Devos controls one of Perdition’s six territories, bordered on both sides by would-be kings eager to challenge her claim. Keeping them at bay requires constant vigilance, as well as a steady influx of new recruits to replace the fallen. Survival is a constant battle, and death is the only escape.

Of the newest convicts, only one is worth Dred’s attention. The mercenary Jael, with his deadly gaze and attitude, may be the most dangerous criminal onboard. His combat skill could give her the edge she needs, if he doesn’t betray her first. Unfortunately, that’s what he does best. Winning Jael’s allegiance will be a challenge, but failure could be worse than death…

Look whats out today Last Blood by Kristen Painter

Just heard about this series from a friend.  So of course I bought the first one in the series.  I think these covers for the series are amazing, very different and unique!

Chrysabelle gathers her friends and family around her, forming a plan to bring an end to the chaos surrounding them. But the Castus is the most powerful being they've ever come up against. Defeating such evil will require a great sacrifice from someone on the side of light.

One of them will change sides. One of them will die. No one will survive unscathed. Can Chrysabelle save those she cares about or will that love get her killed? What price is she willing to pay to draw last blood?

That's right "Hellfire" by Jean Johnson is out today! I love Theirs not to reason why series

Now I'm just plan excited about this one!  I loved A Soldier's Duty, I have the 2nd book and I'm dying to read this one!  I hope that Jean Johnson continues the series 300 years in the future when the other precog is fulfilling the final part.


Her story began in the national bestsellers A Soldier’s Duty and An Officer’s Duty. Now Ia is captain and commander at the helm of Hellfire, where she is finally free to chart the course for the fulfillment of her destiny…

As captain, Ia must now assemble a crew that can rise to the ultimate challenge of saving the galaxy. The hardest part will be getting them to believe her, to trust in her prophecies. If they don’t, her own crew will end up being the biggest obstacle in her race against time.

The Salik are breaking through the Blockade, plunging the known galaxy into war. Ia cannot stop it this time, nor does she want to. This is the terrible price she has seen all along—that some must pay with their lives so that others might live. Now only time itself can prove whether each member of her crew is merely a soldier or truly one of Ia’s Damned.

Review of the Shadow's Claim by Kresley Cole

#1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces The Dacians: Realm of Blood and Mist, a new paranormal series following the royal bloodline of Dacia, a vampire kingdom hidden within the Lore of the Immortals After Dark.
Shadow’s Claim features Prince Trehan, a ruthless master assassin who will do anything to possess Bettina, his beautiful sorceress mate, even compete for her hand in a blood-sport tournament— to the death.
Trehan Daciano, known as the Prince of Shadows, has spent his life serving his people—striking in the night, quietly executing any threat to their realm. The coldly disciplined swordsman has never desired anything for himself—until he beholds Bettina, the sheltered ward of two of the Lore’s most fearsome villains.
Desperate to earn her guardians’ approval after a life-shattering mistake, young Bettina has no choice but to marry whichever suitor prevails—even though she’s lost her heart to another. Yet one lethal competitor, a mysterious cloaked swordsman, invades her dreams, tempting her with forbidden pleasure.
Even if Trehan can survive the punishing contests to claim her as his wife, the true battle for Bettina’s heart is yet to come. And unleashing a millennium’s worth of savage need will either frighten his Bride away—or stoke Bettina’s own desires to a fever pitch. . . .

Rating 3/5

As usual Kresley Cole excels at her writing craft.  Hot guy's that are all Alpha and are in serious need of saving.  Trehan Daciano meets all of these qualities and is super hot hero.  However, Bettina is not exactly a likable character.  Her shallow, silliness and disregard for the fact that Cas is womanizing annoyance goes beyond the pale.  I never could relate as to why she would want the other guy to almost the bitter end.  A guy that didn't want her vs. the Trehan who lusted and general gave up so much for her.

The writing is great but the heroine is much to be desired.  Still a good read just not what I'm used to from Mrs. Cole.

Life for Kansas was perfect until the day the world changed.
She has been hiding out for four years in solitude. It's the only way to survive. The only way not to draw the living dead. Helping a small group of people, she learns the new world might not be what she assumes. Venturing out of her refuge and comfort zone, she meets Rudy, who helps her find a greater purpose. She realizes that the world has moved on without her. Only it's not what she expects. Her knowledge of the living dead grows and only makes her more curious as humanity continues to hang on by a thread. While on her search for answers she finds comfort in new friendships and love, but her past seems as if it will haunt her forever.
Kansas takes it upon herself to help other survivors, which would be easy if the famished were the only obstacles.
In a trilogy plot thick with twists and turns, it is emotional as much as it is horrifyingly gripping.

Taking off the Dead started with a bang!  It was exciting and cool.  It lost it's momentum when Kan landed in trouble and ended up at a human compound.  Even the main Hero, Rudy is presented as a Kick Ass and very interesting.  This book could have gone in such a different direction and could have been amazing.  Not that it was bad but I really didn't care for the cults or the government crazies.  Actually, the government crazy guy's confused me.  Was the gov. involved with the crazy scientist or were they trying to rebuild?  Descent Zombie book and worth a look.
