~Kiss of the Goblin Prince~

The Goblin King

Trapped for centuries in the bleak Shadowlands, Dai clings to his humanity with a thirst for knowledge. But now he's free of the goblin curse, and some would say he knows too much- he can make nature bend to his will, influence the minds of others, and command magic. Yet love eludes him. Then he meets Amanda, a single mother with a sick daughter whom he feels compelled to protect. But could she possibly place her trust in the kiss of a goblin prince?

You know how you feel when you've read the most awesome book and you're sitting there waiting for the next one to come out????
That is so how I felt waiting for this book!!!
Wholly Flipping Boogers!!!
I read the prequel, I read the Goblin King.....
Then I was left waiting and flipping waiting....and I swear I was gonna DIE!!!!!!
Then it was like my Birthday and Christmas all wrapped up in one...
NetGalley and Source Books were so nice to let me review it!!!

If I were to choose right now between The Goblin King and this book I would have to say sorry Roan, Dai has you beat hands down!
This book has it all fighting, magic and of course a little romance....LOL
I would have never thought myself to be saying that either because The Goblin King was hot, but I'd jump Dai in a heartbeat.

Shona did a masterful job of storytelling with Dai and his quest to get his books back. All his learning throughout the years of being a goblin and what he could do now with that knowledge. It was truly unique! Yet, Birch seemed not to want to return it to him and with each irritated Dai more and more.....How was he suppose to help if he couldn't look in his books!!!!
The whole Amanda - Dai thing was like watching fire dance....CRAZY!
They were bound to each other in more ways then one...LOL
Then there was Brigit, Amanda's daughter....I think it was such an interesting twist to ploy into the story with her .....LOVE IT.
Then the whole Fane issue...OMG!
Don't even get me started on Meryn and the Shadowlands....Wow!!!

I might re-read this again just to make sure I didn't miss a thing.....because I'm still dumbfounded from what I read the first time. Totally blows my mind!
Honestly....There is not one thing I didn't like about this book!!!

~Rules of the Game~

Kathryn West has it all-she's a confident, bestselling author living it up in New York City. Too bad she doesn't actually exist, and is only timid Maddie Sawyer's pseudonym. Determined to attend her high school reunion with a man right out of one of her racy romance novels, she plots to find a sexy bad boy who's up to Kathryn's standards.
She finds Mr. Perfect shooting pool in a biker bar. He's a blue-collar hunk who just happens to look great in leather. But the mysterious Scott Brady has some rules of his own: he won't agree to her deal unless she poses as his girlfriend in front of his family and friends first.
As the reunion nears, Maddie tries to maintain her carefree fa├žade, knowing she'll soon face some old ghosts. She's torn between her growing attraction to Scott and the nagging feeling that he's hiding something important. Will she still want him when she finds out his secret? What about when he discovers hers?

About~76,000 words

The cover for this book in my opinion really doesn't do the story any justice at all. The story ROCKS! It has so many twists that I swear you'll feel as if you're on a roller coaster  taken by surprise.
This was beyond a fun read!

I loved how Maddie and Scott met. It's was as if she was shoe shopping :0)
The Story itself goes around the rules that Maddie has made up.....Scott of course changes them .
Soon they're dating... for REAL....
Then the REUNION
Talk about one twist.....(by here I already figured out what Scott was hiding...But man Maddie!!!!)
This is where all blanky blanky goes forth and you would think Scott would take tail and run, but nope.....
he stayed ......
I really liked him .
After the reunion when they return to life as it's Maddie that REALLY and I mean REALLY starts to rub me wrong.....
I just wish I could of like her through the whole book, but I couldn't. She just crashed and burned for me and never recovered.

The author did a great job telling a interesting story with twists and turns. Each of the characters were relate-able to real life craziness which makes this story all the more fun to read. I can think of various of my friends that would go through the trouble of finding a "date " for a reunion. Although, I doubt if their stories extend any further.
Wonderful summer read....totally recommend!!!
