New Release: Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined by Stephenie Meyer

So it's the 10th anniversary of Twilight and Stephenie Meyer has promised some bonus content... 

I was really hoping for a completed Midnight Sun, but what I was not expecting is a whole new full length novel where she has done a gender swap on the characters! Now the vampire is a woman and the high school student is the guy.

What are your thoughts on this? 
Are you excited, disgusted, or maybe you don't care one way or the other. 

I'm not going to lie, my husband picked me up a copy today - mostly because I'm really curious to see how this new story plays out. You never know, it may be even better than the original! 


Celebrate the tenth anniversary of Twilight! This special double-feature book includes the classic novel, Twilight, and a bold and surprising reimagining, Life and Death, by Stephenie Meyer.

Packaged as an oversize, jacketed hardcover “flip book,” this edition features nearly 400 pages of new content as well as exquisite new back cover art. Readers will relish experiencing the deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful love story of Bella and Edward through fresh eyes.
Twilight has enraptured millions of readers since its first publication in 2005 and has become a modern classic, redefining genres within young adult literature and inspiring a phenomenon that has had readers yearning for more. 

The novel was a #1 New York Times bestseller, a #1 USA Today bestseller, a Time magazine Best Young Adult Book of All Time, an NPR Best-Ever Teen Novel, and a New York Times Editor’s Choice. The Twilight Saga, which also includes New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella, and The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, has sold nearly 155 million copies worldwide.

Review: Infinite Possibilities (Secret Life of Amy Bensen #2) Lisa Renee Jones

Infinite Possibilities
The Secret Life of Amy Bensen
Book 2
Lisa Renee Jones

Adult, Romance, Mystery 

Catch up with the New York Times sexy, thrilling bestselling mystery THE SECRET LIFE OF AMY BENSEN SERIES, before the highly anticipated books 3 and 4, FORSAKEN (Aug. 18th) and UNBROKEN (Sept. 7th), release! Both available for pre-order now!

Secrets and lies. They are everywhere: haunting her, tormenting her. In the midst of it all, he’d been her escape, her passion. The only person she’d trusted in six years. And then he’d made her doubt that trust, cutting her deeply. But as she’d once told him, she was damaged, not broken. She is ready to fight and not just for survival. She is fighting for the truth and she won’t stop until she has it, not even for…him.


I enjoyed the read, it was just really slow in parts and it jumped around quite a bit.

The book started out great, with lots of suspense. Who to trust, who not to trust, why are things different this time... but I found myself annoyed with Amy more than once. It was almost like she had multiple personalities. One minute she's a scared teenager, the next she's so stubborn she doesn't care if it gets her killed, and later in the day she's a dumb blonde that has no clue what's going on. It was a bit much.

I really liked the plot, though it drug on and on at times. There was a whole cast of characters and you never knew who to trust and Amy just jumped from person to person with blind faith like a lost puppy. I was disappointed in the bad guy, I was hoping for something more interesting instead of the obvious. There were some characters that just fell out of the story, but perhaps they are explained in the next book... It just didn't feel like much of an ending.

Review: Escaping Reality (Secret Life of Amy Bensen #1) Lisa Renee Jones

Escaping Reality
The Secret Life of Amy Bensen
book 1
Lisa Renee Jones

Adult, Romance, Mystery

Catch up with the New York Times sexy, thrilling bestselling mystery THE SECRET LIFE OF AMY BENSEN SERIES, before the highly anticipated books 3 and 4, FORSAKEN (Aug. 18th) and UNBROKEN (Sept. 7th), release! Both available for pre-order now!

Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?


I'm really enjoying the mystery of this series, but at the same time I know nothing and that is irritating after 21 chapters!

I love Liam, but he seems to good to be true and that is usually the case. All the other characters are acting suspicious and I have no idea who to trust. I find myself wanting to pull Amy through the book and yell at her for being stupid. I get that she's tired of running and wants to feel normal, but you don't know him and everything is different this time. Why aren't you trying to find answers? Your handler isn't going to just up and change his mo, so something is off and you need to figure it out! ugh. /rant over.

I am downloading book two as I type this and I can't wait to see what is in store for our mystery woman!

Review: Just One Night (book #1) by Kyra Davis

Just One Night
Book 1
Kyra Davis

Adult, Romance

In this New York Times bestselling erotic enovella trilogy, a buttoned-up businesswoman takes her friend’s advice and has a fling with a stranger on a trip to Vegas—only to find herself under his mysterious, sexy power both in the boardroom and the bedroom. 

Kasie Fitzgerald knows who she’s supposed to be. She’s a rising-star-workaholic at a global consulting firm. She’s the fiancĂ©e of a well-connected man who’s won the approval of her parents. People know that she’s reliable, serious, proper, cautious, pragmatic, and yes, a little predictable. She’s who Dave and her family want her to be.

But as her thirtieth birthday looms, buried feelings begin to resurrect. Her friend takes her to Vegas for one last wild and crazy night. In a dress much shorter and sexier than anything she has ever dared to wear before, she hits the blackjack tables. And meets him. Under the tailored clothes it’s clear that this is a man who is intense, powerful, and maybe even a little dangerous. With a touch of trepidation she accepts his invitation to get a drink, and before long, she’s in his hotel room.

She never gets his full name. Perhaps his anonymity is one of the reasons she’s able to give herself over to him and to the moment so completely. Perhaps it’s why she’s just had the most exquisite and passionate sex of her life. Shaken by her own behavior, Kasie tries to chalk it up to one crazy night. But when the mysterious gentleman she’s just had a fling with shows up in her office—as the CEO of a firm her company does a billion dollars of business with a year, demanding that she handle his account, and so much more—things will never be the same again. And there’s no telling where this will go…


I give this 3 stars... I loved some parts and didn't care for others making this just a good read for me.

It started out really good, I loved the characters and their interactions, then something happened and it just kind of went flat for me. I've read that this was originally written as a serial series with 3 installments, I think there should have been a little editing done where the segments were joined together so we weren't reading a recap of the previous chapters. Each time a new segments was introduced it felt like they were written at different times, like the author wasn't in the same mindset or something.. I just think with some clever editing this would be a solid 4 star read.

I started out in love with Robert, then as the story progresses he becomes more of an ass, and not the hot kind either, he becomes the kind of person you need to get away from as soon as possible or you'll find yourself sucked in and then tossed to the side when he's done. I found that there were very few characters I did like by the end of it, but its what made the story work.

Some of the characters were one dimensional; while Robert had layers, you just scratch the surface with him, and it's a shame because there is so much potential there. I said before this would be a 4 star read with editing, add in some character depth and this could easily be a 5 star book.

For me it's a 3, but I enjoyed my time, it did it's job in entertaining me for the weekend.
