My Favorite Reads for January

Sorry I’m late in posting my favorite picks from my January Readz. I had 11 reads and there were two that stood out. Here they are:

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.

With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

My thoughts: I’ll admit that I’m not one for young adult romance. I read the Twilight series and for me the series was okay but not WOW. So I put reading YA books on the back burner. But it was the cover that drew my attention to this book. So I gave the book a try and I am very happy I did.

The book did not disappoint. I loved how Patch was so mysterious. All the characters were great. I thoroughly loved the plot. The plot had me guessing all the way up to the end on Patch’s true identity. There were clues and hunches while reading but everything is really confirmed towards the end. Also right up to the end, I trying to figure out who really was the villain. I love when a book does that. I was sucked in from the beginning and I could not put the book down. I can’t wait for the sequel. And after reading this book, I’m now looking forward to trying other young adult authors again.

My rating: 5 out 5 stars

Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life…

She’s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure—but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.

Two lovers will dare to risk all.

Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his desire to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable—and let Tayla possess him, body and soul…

My thoughts: I’ve completed reading the 1st three books in the series. I’ve read the books out of order but after reading all three, this is my favorite thus far. I really enjoyed the world and the plotline. The concept of a demon hospital was very creative and believable. I really fell in love with Eidolon. Tayla grew on me. I liked seeing how she comes to realize everything isn’t as black and white as she thought it was. The book is a page-turner with lots of action, adventure and hot steamy romance scenes.

I highly recommend the series. The fourth book in the series, Ecstasy Unveiled was just released on January 26th. I can’t wait to read it.

My rating: 5 out 5 stars
