Review: Touch~ Jus Accardo

When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.

Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.

A secret Kale will kill to protect.

So my first thought- “the author dives into the world of Dez a teenage girl set out to piss her dad off” great…

But then when the story started moving forwards I kind of got used to this idea of Dez and her dad, but hold on a second! There was a lot about this book that annoyed me, like for instance…
At the very start I got so confused, I actually wasn’t sure if Dez was a girl or a boy until about five pages in (I didn’t read about the book I just started it) so not a great start, but when Kale came along it was promising. The beginning was actually really captivating even though I was confused I really loved the action and the promise that it held.
Another thing that really ticked me off was Dez- I really liked her punk look and her sarcasm and just her but halfway through she became so annoying! It seemed like she believed whatever she was told, and she didn’t question anything! It was as if she couldn’t be bothered to think it all through.

So just to get everything out of the way yet another thing that really annoyed me was how easy this whole thing seemed to me! Everything seemed to just land in their laps and all they had to do was follow through with whatever it is they needed to do- it wasn’t at all mysterious or thrilling. Is it just me or did her cousin Brandt just happened to know everything and knew where to find every little thing that Dez needed? 

But fear not! I did enjoy this book quite a bit! And here are the reasons why…

I never thought I would come by a book where the girl has to teach the guy about sex and kissing and everything else that well they should already know. And it was brilliant! It was really cheesy, funny and awkward which makes it even BETTER!

And Kale, I wouldn’t mind running into him any time, he was hot charming and just plain adorable. And the main thing I loved about him was how much he cared for Dez and he wanted to protect her all the time it was just so sweet.

So even though the start and some aspects of this book annoyed the crap out of me I still loved it! Halfway through when action was picking up and I mean both fighting and in the bedroom if you know what I mean
- yeah there was an actual sex scene! Not being creepy or anything but a lot of books lack that the romance just feels well bleh, it doesn’t seem like any teenage romance nowadays. But this book didn’t lack anything! It was just brilliant- and because of the romance and what was going on and obviously because of Kale I do admit I enjoyed it quite a bit. 

~~It looks a lot more creepier then I intended it to! 

Kissed~ I won't mind showing Kale what a kiss is~

Review:Prom Nights From Hell 

In this exciting collection, bestselling authors Meg Cabot ("How to Be Popular"), Kim Harrison ("A Fistful of Charms"), Michele Jaffe ("Bad Kitty"), Stephenie Meyer ("Twilight"), and Lauren Myracle ("ttyl") take bad prom nights to a whole new level--a paranormally bad level. Wardrobe malfunctions and two left feet don't hold a candle to discovering your date is the Grim Reaper--and he isn't here to tell you how hot you look.
From angels fighting demons to a creepy take on getting what you wish for, these five stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun.

~ I read and reviewed this book a long time ago, so this review is a little bit old and it was written around the time when I was obsessed with Twilight and Stephenine Meyer~ 

Well first of all I LOVE THE BOOK AND THE STORIES!! The stories are amazing, even though they are really short they are nevertheless amazing. The way they are told and the way you can so picture it is awesome..
But there is one story I don't like and to be completely honest I couldn't wait to finish it.
And the story was by *Cries* Stephenie Meyer- Hell on earth.
I love her and her work but this story was just dreadful. It was painful to read, for me it didn't make any sense and it was just so so confusing. And it absolutely kills me to say this but I didn't like it at all, it was nothing like any of her other stories it was as if she just made it up on the spot.
But anyway- my favourite is Meg Cabot - The Exterminator's Daughter. It was so quick and snappy but nonetheless I loved it, it was so flirty and so just amazing, I don't know how else to describe it but I loved it.
Now to the next story by Lauren Myracle- The Corsage I wasn't so keen on the story at first, I thought it was a bit dull. But then it got really interesting and it was more of a halloween story then a prom one. SPOILER ALERT!! I hated the ending and if it was me who brought the love of my life back to life I would most likely still love him and not wish for him to go away!
Kim Harrison- Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper was okay I will read the rest of the books because it ended on a great cliff hanger and I can't wait to see what happens next. But that's all I have to say for it to be honest.
Michele Jaffer- Kiss and Tell. Well for starts I love the characters. I love the beginning and I love the ending even though there isn't going to be more books of Kiss and Tell as far as I'm aware, I would love to see what happens next and what happens with Miranda.

So the book was awesome, and I know I pointed out most of the stuff I didn't like but there are a lot a lot of stuff I love. But I'm not going to dwell on that.

So if you are looking for some sharp, snappy and flirty stories I would totally recommend it. :)

BITTEN!!~Five amazing authors- five amazing bites!!~

Cover Reveal- ReAwakend by Ada Adams

~~ReVamped website:
~~ReVamped Facebook page:
~~Ada Adam's Twitter:!/Ada_Adams
~~Cover Designer: Juliana Kolesova @
~~“ReAwakened” Theme: Blood (hence the cover color).
 AHHHHHHH!!!!! This beautiful book is coming out this year! So anyone who has not yet read ReVamped get yourself together and buy the book! 

I love both of the covers they are both very beautiful, no beyond beautiful... I told Ada that I really love both of the covers and that I couldn't decide which one I love more (it's like a crime) but thankfully she told me I'm able to love both (phew I thought I would have to flip a coin) 

So in case you haven't yet figured out that how much I love this brand new vampire series by my little fit above I really do. It's mostly because of the twist in the middle, and well the fact that vampires came out of their coffins and are out and about in the real world.
