Book Spotlight: Choosing Evil – Kristina Rienzi

This week saw the release of Kristina Rienzi’s first book – Choosing Evil  from Midnight Frost Books. Here’s Kristina to tell you a little more about it.

 

Choosing Evil-small ‘Hey guys!

Thank you so much for stopping by today to check out my debut novel, Choosing Evil! This baby was a labor of love, for sure. And, its tagline, ‘Embrace Your Inner Demon’ has already raised some eyebrows around my small beach town (oops!).

Well, if you’re into the paranormal like I am, it won’t shock you to know the demons in Choosing Evil are not only sexy and bad-ass, but full of emotional baggage and human appeal.

While Choosing Evil is Serafina’s story, her love interest, Damon is a giant part of it. If you like what you read, get ready for the sequel, Breaking Evil, which I’m hoping to release in 2015. Both books are part of The Ensouled Trilogy, which not only pits good against evil, but makes each character, and reader, question what evil really means to them.

I hope you have fun today getting introduced to Choosing Evil, and me! Don’t forget to find me on social media and, of course, sign up for my giveaways below 🙂

Thank you again for helping me celebrate Choosing Evil’s release!’

 

Choosing Evil-small

Untitled

 Serafina Murano is no stranger to the paranormal. All of her life she’s lived harmoniously alongside demons. Damon Serpe is a conflicted demon on a mission. Unexpectedly, they collide into each other’s lives and are inexorably drawn to one another.

Dark deadly secrets, gut wrenching betrayal, and elusive questions haunt her and have her entire life. Instinctively, Serafina realizes Damon holds the key to her understanding. If she trusts him, can he help decipher her recurring nightmares and unravel the mysteries surrounding her?

On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, she must select her path and make a difficult choice. One which will change her, and perhaps the world, forever.

Will Serafina embrace the truth and face her evil?

Would you?

23509471

Blurb -2

Heading home to Liverpool for Christmas, Molly Mackenzie isn’t just looking forward to the mulled wine and mince pies – she’s got high hopes for who she’ll find under the mistletoe this year!

Unable to forget the delicious near miss with her brother’s best friend, Jake, last New Year’s Eve, Molly’s got a new resolution at the top of her list: seduce Jake and get this crazy chemistry out the way before it has serious repercussions on the rest of the Mackenzie family.

Only Molly has underestimated the magic of the holiday season… The more stolen moments in the snow that she shares with Jake, the more determined she is to make it a whole lot more than just a kiss before midnight.

My Review

 

The Kiss Before MidnightIf you’re looking for a romantic Christmas story, ‘The Kiss Before Midnight’ is a must read. This is the second festive story by Sophie Pembroke that I have read this week and this one is definitely my favourite. Molly and Jake have known each other forever but after last New Year’s Eve, Molly can no longer see Jake, only as her older brother’s best friend.

Molly is a curious mix of confidence and insecurity. During the Christmas festivities, she questions her motives for leaving the city and job she loves and whether she should pursue her last New Year’s resolution.

Jake, is Molly’s parents’ surrogate son and he is reluctant to jeopardise this by pursuing Molly in the way he would like to. I loved Jake. In many ways he was like a small boy pressing his nose against the window of family life; A voyeur rather than a participant. Gradually he realises these feeling are internal rather than external barriers to his happiness.

The sensual heat between Jake and Molly is warmer than the mulled wine that flows so freely and leads to some humorous moments. When they finally give in to their attraction it leads to more misunderstanding and heartache for the couple.

The romance is sweet and the ending perfectly crafted. The setting is a perfect Christmas, English style, which I enjoyed.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

4* Review: The Kiss Before Christmas – Sophie Pembroke

Blurb -2

An English Girl in New York

As the snow starts to fall on Manhattan, PA Dory Mackenzie is a long way from home, far from the comforts and cheer of her cozy family Christmases back in Liverpool.

So when her boss Tyler Alexander offers to pay her pricey ticket home for New Year, Dory just can’t say no… even if she has to pretend to be his girlfriend for the holidays!

Tyler may be hiding the real reason he needs a girlfriend-of-convenience but that’s the least of Dory’s worries when she’s up against the disapproval of his high society mother, and the suspicions of his gorgeous older brother Lucas, the black sheep of the family.

There’s no fooling Lucas, and it’s not just the truth he wants to get closer to… So before the bells have even rung out for Christmas day, Dory finds herself caught up in the Alexander family’s dramas – and sharing more than just a few kisses under the mistletoe!

My Review

The Kiss Before ChristmasWith her New York dream in tatters Dory faces Christmas alone, enter her boss Tyler who is clearly attracted, not to mention wholly dependent on her. Tyler is a public relations disaster and Dory is the only one who can save him from his mother’s wrath. So rather than spending Christmas with her family in England, she finds herself at Tyler’s soulless family gathering, where she feels like a specimen under a microscope.
Hardly the stuff of a Christmas romance but against this unlikely setting Dory meets Lucas, Tyler’s older, sexier and single brother. There is simmering chemistry between Dory and Lucas but too many secrets threaten their romance. This novella has some key supporting characters, which illustrate the snobbery and prejudice of Tyler’s family perfectly. The story has plenty of humour and a lovely romantic ending.

5* Review: The Sicilian’s Unexpected Duty – Michelle Smart- The Irresistible Sicilians #2

 

 

21317228

Blurb -2One incredible night…

Cara Delany shouldn’t have been surprised when Pepe Mastrangelo – world-renowned playboy –
disappeared after their unforgettable night, leaving only cold sheets and X-rated memories… Or so she thought! But four months later, with more than herself to think of, she’s forced to face the sexy Sicilian again.

One very big consequence!

When the fiery redhead Pepe hasn’t been able to forget hurtles back into his life, proclaiming he’s the father of her child, it’s a role that he’s never expected – or wanted. Unsure if she’s telling the truth, Pepe has five months to uncover everything about Cara – and he knows just where to start!

Buy Links -2Amazon  UK

 

My Review

The Sicilian's Unexpected Duty (Mills & Boon Modern) (The Irresistible Sicilians - Book 2)Pepe steals Cara’s phone to help his elder brother Luca, track down his runaway wife Grace. What Pepe doesn’t realise is how his careless sortie into Cara’s life will have life changing consequences for both of them.

Pepe, although outwardly successful and living the dolce vita, hides a maelstrom of self-doubt and anger. He vents his fury on the unsuspecting Cara and confirms her worst fears. She hates him at this point and he is not the most endearing of heroes, in my eyes either. However it’s the little things that betray his compassionate nature. Coupled with his passionate addiction to Cara, he is a hero worth saving. Cara is a gentle person but not weak, as Pepe finds to his cost. Truly courageous Cara is determined not to repeat her parents’ mistakes.
Despite Pepe’s wealth the story is realistically grounded and enhanced with a charmingly, authentic setting. You experience the couple’s knife edge emotions, which continue in intensity right to the poignant end.
Thank goodness for epilogues. After tragedy and misunderstanding Cara and Pepe finally find their happy ever after.

4* Review: Say it With Sequins – The Complete Series – Georgia Hill

cover53765-medium

 ‘Say it with Sequins’ The Complete Series  contains all three stories. I have already reviewed The Rumba and The Waltz and I have included these reviews below , alongside my review of the last book in the series The Charleston.

Blurb -2

Slip on some dance shoes and step up to love!

Who Dares Dances is a reality TV show with a difference. Not only do contestants have to learn to dance, they also face a series of bizarre challenges. But these challenges are nothing compared to the scandals happening on – and off – the ballroom floor!

As the celebrities get closer to both the winners’ trophy and their professional partners it’s all to dance for… Will they score the perfect ten or is romance destined to be a dance disaster?

Buy Links -2Amazon UK

 

My ReviewThe Rumba

Say it With Sequins: The Rumba

 Say it with Sequins: The Rumba is a light-hearted story that triggers fond memories for fans of Strictly. Julia is a struggling actress whose career needs a boost. Harri is a successful children’s presenter who wants a leg up onto the next rung of his career ladder. For Harri and Julia two of the celebrity contestants their mutual attraction is instant but in Harri’s case unwelcome. If he acts on it he may lose his current career. They agree to take part in the Christmas special. Drawn together they have to learn and dance the sexy and complex Rumba together.

The supporting cast of professional dancers and other celebratory clients are varied and make the storyline interesting and humorous. The romance which develops between Julia and Harri is engaging and sweet spiced up with the clever build up of sexual tension. Harri battles with his deep feelings for Julia and she is plagued with self-doubt about her attractiveness to Harri.
Will the Rumba be a ten for them?
A quick fun read.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Collins UK Harper Impulse via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

My ReviewThe Waltz

Say it with Sequins: The Waltz is as the dance suggests a gentle romantic tale of a wallflower and a misunderstood hero.

Lucy a successful but reclusive children’s fiction writer finds herself on the reality television dance show Who Dares Dances thanks to her pushy streetwise agent the aptly named Whiz. Max an Olympic gold medal swimmer is the proverbial fish out of water in the dance studio and it’s this awkwardness that attracts Lucy a recovering agoraphobic who senses a kindred spirit.

Long hours of training make the couple want to be more than friends but neither is aware of their reciprocated feelings put off by the emotional barriers they are both so good at building. Lucy’s naivety leads to a tragic misunderstanding between the couple which makes a fairytale ending unlikely.

This story is full of poignant insights which endear Lucy and Max to the reader. An unforeseen intervention threatens Lucy and Max’s friendship. Luckily cupid appears in a spray tan and gives the couple a helping hand but Max must share his greatest secret if they are ever to be happy together.

Lucy and Max are introverts fighting internal battles which can only be won through self belief which makes Say it With Sequins: The Waltz’ more angst ridden than the first story. The damage prejudice and lack of understanding causes are important elements in this story. Its delicate balance between light and shade makes it a romantic satisfying read.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Collins UK Harper Impulse via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

My ReviewThe Charleston

22923063The Charleston , the last of the ‘Say it with Sequins’ stories ties up the series in a satisfying way and gives the lovely Daniel his chance of a happy-ever-after with Meredith, a feisty struggling actress and stand-up comedienne who needs to succeed in the dance reality show to kick-start her career.
I liked Merry she is intelligent, quick witted with a compassionate nature, the perfect woman for Daniel. Unfortunately, he still holds a candle for Julia (from book 1) and is afraid to take a chance on Merry in case she knocks him back.
Merry’s famous, actress aunt plays a wonderful cameo role in the story.
Merry is forced to confront her deepest fears in the most public of arena’s but her strength of character pulls her through but does she get her man? Read this charming story and find out.

5* Review: Cold Feet at Christmas – Debbie Johnson

23245641Blurb -2

Running out on your wedding shouldn’t be this much fun!

A remote Scottish castle on a snowy Christmas Eve. A handsome husband-to-be. A dress to die for. It should have been the happiest day of Leah Harvey’s life – but the fairytale wedding turns sour when she finds her fiancé halfway up the bridesmaid’s skirt just hours before the ceremony!

Fleeing the scene in a blizzard, Leah ends up stranded at the nearest cottage, where she collapses into the arms of its inhabitant – a man so handsome she thinks she must have died and gone to heaven!

And when Rob Cavelli suddenly finds himself with an armful of soaking wet, freezing cold, and absolutely gorgeous bride on the run, he’s more than happy to welcome her into his snowbound cottage this Christmas…

Buy Links -2Amazon UK

My Review

Cold Feet at ChristmasChristmas wouldn’t be complete without a delightful romantic comedy. ‘Cold Feet at Christmas’ has all the ingredients for the perfect romantic trifle. Leah and Rob are vivid characters, so easy to visualise. The remote, snowbound cottage is the quintessentially festive setting. This is sprinkled with laugh-out-loud humour and sizzling romantic chemistry that makes you long to be stranded in a snow drift.

What comes next when Christmas gives way to New Year is alternatively frustrating and amusing. Leah realises Rob is far more emotionally damaged than he seems on first acquaintance. Rob denies his feelings for Leah. He hides a deep sadness and lack of self worth that threatens any future they may have. Gentle humour mitigates the poignancy. Leah is a ‘glass half full’ girl and even though she has more than her fair share of emotional baggage, she retains her optimism. This is refreshing and gives the reader hope she can make annoyingly, confusing yet sexy Rob see that she is the key to his future.

There are no major surprises in the story but this is part of the charm of romantic comedy and the ending is nicely done.

Be sure to put this festive cracker on your Christmas list.

My Review 2

I Need You: HarperImpulse New Adult RomanceI have read and enjoyed all the ‘Starting Out’ books. This one is the most poignant and realistic and therefore for me, the most enjoyable. ‘I Found You’, the first book in the series introduced Billy and Lindy and neither came across as particularly likeable. ‘I Need You’ is their story and you don’t have to read very much of this book to realise why they both acted so badly in the first book.

Billy loves Lindy. They met at school and he accepted her friendship, no matter how painful it was, rather than lose her when she hooked up with his best mate Jason. Lindy is angry and desperate when Jason dumps her for his soul mate Rachel but her pain is more complicated than Billy first surmises. Billy puts his life on hold to stop Lindy’s downward spiral but she doesn’t share all her pain with him and the time they spend together takes its toll on his tender heart.

The chemistry between the two friends is a slow sizzle and their love story is full of pain, fear and humour. Billy truly awakens Lindy to her full potential, in every way but is it enough for them to be together, or is Lindy’s need to escape parts of her life too much for Billy to repair?

The story unfolds beautifully and it highlights the importance of forgiveness, envy and how hard you have to work to find true love. Lindy is the character that travels the furthest in this story and the one I admired the most at the end.

‘I Need You’ is a lovely feel good read.

5* Review: What a Sicilian Husband Wants – Michelle Smart – Irresistible Sicilians #1

20940431

Untitled

On his terms only!

Moving countries, cutting all ties and giving birth to her baby alone, Grace Holden is desperately hiding from her past. But just when she thinks she might have broken free, it catches up with her in the form of her millionaire Sicilian husband!

Grace swore her daughter wouldn’t grow up among the dark power and money of his family…but no one walks away from Luca Mastrangelo. Now, back within his reach, Grace is surprised to see new depths to the man she married, and each crack in his armor makes it harder to fight the desire still blazing between them.

My Review

 What a Sicilian Husband Wants (Mills & Boon Modern) (The Irresistible Sicilians - Book 1)The first chapter of ‘What a Sicilian Husband Wants’ is full of suspense and more than a little menace. Not the usual start for a glamorous romance but it intrigued me. Grace is afraid of her own shadow and is reluctant to help the unexpected caller at her door. Her compassionate nature triumphs over her fear but by letting down her guard, she unwittingly lets her past crash into her present existence.

Luca Grace’s estranged husband tracks her down. His presence at their explosive reunion is almost that of a Gothic hero, especially when he discovers Grace’s hidden treasure. Sicily is a picturesque setting but it’s easy to see why free spirited Grace ran away from her beautiful prison.

The flashbacks are insightful and the chemistry between Grace and Luca easy to imagine. Luca, though flawed has some wonderful qualities. Grace is a strong woman, who escapes from the man she loves because his world is sucking the life out of her. Can these two be together when it seems everything but their physical attraction pulls them apart? The ending assures us of happy ever after and is worth the angst.

I am looking forward to meeting the next irresistible Sicilian.

3* Review: EndGame- The Calling -James Frey & Nils Johnson-Shelton

cover52139-mediumBLURB Twelve thousand years ago, they came. They descended from the sky amid smoke and fire, and created humanity and gave us rules to live by. They needed gold and they built our earliest civilizations to mine it for them. When they had what they needed, they left. But before they left, they told us someday they would come back, and when they did, a game would be played. A game that would determine our future.

This is Endgame.

For ten thousand years the lines have existed in secret. The 12 original lines of humanity. Each had to have a Player prepared at all times. They have trained generation after generation after generation. In weapons, languages, history, tactics, disguise assassination. Together the players are everything: strong, kind, ruthless, loyal, smart, stupid, ugly, lustful, mean, fickle, beautiful, calculating, lazy, exuberant, weak. They are good and evil. Like you. Like all.

This is Endgame.

When the game starts, the players will have to find three keys. The keys are somewhere on earth. The only rule of their Endgame is that there are no rules. Whoever finds the keys first wins the game. Endgame: The Calling is about the hunt for the first key. And just as it tells the story of the hunt for a hidden key, written into the book is a puzzle. It invites readers to play their own Endgame and to try to solve the puzzle. Whoever does will open a case filled with gold. Alongside the puzzle will be a revolutionary mobile game built by Google’s Niantic Labs that will allow you to play a real-world version of Endgame where you can join one of the lines and do battle with people around you.

Will exuberance beat strength? Stupidity top kindness? Laziness thwart beauty? Will the winner be good or evil? There is only one way to find out.

Play.
Survive.
Solve.
People of Earth.
Endgame has begun.

My Review -1

Endgame: The CallingThe sample of Endgame I read, intrigued me enough to want to read the rest. You can read my initial thoughts after reading the sample chapters here: My Review of Endgame – sample.

Unfortunately the rest of the book doesn’t live up to my initial expectations.

It continues its multi character approach and certainly delivers on action and violence. Given the characters’ young ages, I found this disturbing.

Interestingly, instead of working in isolation many of the players teamed up. This realistic touch emphasised the players’ humanity.

The story is punctuated with number sequences and pictures. I presume these relate to the game, which accompanies the book. I ignored these and reviewed the characters and story. The drawings and pictures would be better in the hardcover version. I read an electronic ARC.

The end of ‘The Calling’ throws up more questions than answers. I’m not sure I care enough about the characters to find out what happens.

However I am not the intended audience and if you are a fan of fantasy computer games and dystopian adventure this may be for you.

I received a copy of this sampler from Harper Collins UK Childrens via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Except Jasmine; she intrigued him. Her potent aura represented a source of usable power.

Attraction

ZaneWolf shifter – Zane fought his attraction to Jasmine in The Dragon Legacy. ‘Zane released her. Did she believe him? He cursed the rush of blood to his groin and growled with frustration. He hoped the feisty witch followed his advice.‘ but it continued into The Revenge Masquerade. ‘His hackles rose and then flattened in recognition of the scent: a mixture of flowers and spice unique to Jasmine. He resisted the urge to shift into his human form. As a wolf, their encounter would remain platonic. His mind and heart warred over the morality of his desires. He couldn’t stay. His mission necessitated he leave immediately. Was it fair to take Jasmine’s heart and leave her alone with needs mere memories wouldn’t satisfy? The wolf ignored his human conscience. Time was short and the instinctive need to brand the flame-haired witch with his mark too strong. He shifted back into his human form.
