"The Moment of Letting Go" by J.A. Redmerski



THE MOMENT OF LETTING GO BY J.A. REDMERSKI

SERIES: Stand-alone
PUBLISHER: Piatkus
GENRE: NA Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Review copy received from the publisher

SUMMARY
Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And as far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved—until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks. Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he's convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can't deny the deep connection he feels. But there's a reason Luke doesn't do long-term. He can'ts promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be...

MY REVIEW

My first try with J.A. Redmerski couldn't have gone better! Sometimes you find a read to pass the time, others one that makes you dream and others one that hits home. "The Moment of Letting Go" pretty much covers all of the above, but its real power is definitely of the last kind. At least it has been for me.

The story is simple, what is complex are the emotions of the characters, their fears and faults—or what they perceive as such. Sienna and Luke have more to show you than a simple chemistry or a 'Summer fling', in fact, there's no denial destiny made those two meet for a reason. There are certain aspects that particularly surprised me because of how much I could relate to, and also how someone like Luke can make you feel. I think Redmerski has done a great job by telling this story in a way that touches the reader and makes them feel part of the book, one that is difficult to forget especially because of its important message...

It's undoubtedly the perfect Summer read, although I can assure you it's not a matter of season what makes you fall for this book. Pick it up whenever you want, really, just pick. It. Up!

RATING: 4/5

Summer Break!

Hey everyone,

just a quick heads up to let you know me and Darkest Sins are taking a break for the rest of the Summer, which means a couple of weeks.

Keep up the love and feel free to comment/email me anytime, I'll get back to you as soon as I come back.

See you on September 1st!

"The Last True Vampire" by Kate Baxter



THE LAST TRUE VAMPIRE BY KATE BAXTER

SERIES: Last True Vampire #1
PUBLISHER: Headline Eternal
GENRE: Paranormal Romance
SOURCE: ARC received from the publisher

SUMMARY
He is the last of his race. King of the vampires. Michael Aristov is the sole Ancient One to survive the slayers' obliteration. Only he can resurrect the vampire race. But he's unable to reclaim his world alone... Claire Thompson is mortal, yet her intoxicating blood draws Michael like a moth to the flame. Only she can satisfy his insatiable cravings. With the future of the vampire race now at stake, Claire has the power to seal Michael's fate—forever.

MY REVIEW

I was starting to really miss the Paranormal Romance genre, so when the publisher surprised me with the most lovely package ever I couldn't wait to start this read! And, I must say, it was really well delivered.

Michael is the only surviving vampire, his past and the collective memories of those who existed before him constantly assail his dreams, and the only hope he has to bring back his race is through his true mate. Centuries has passed without finding her, so imagine when the match he couldn't believe existed is the tough human girl with a witty mouth and quite the temper... Heat ignites instantly, but she gives our hero a very hard time and that was so entertaining! I also really loved the double pov and the fact the author gave insights of the vampire's world thanks to a third character whose voice has been very appreciated.

Kate Baxter has done a very good job with the world building and her characters are funny, sexy and fascinating as much as the whole story. I would really suggest every lover of this genre to give this book a try, I personally look forward to the next instalment!

RATING: 4/5

This week's teaser: THE LAST TRUE VAMPIRE by Kate Baxter

If she thought to find an exit in this part of the club she was about to be disappointed. In a matter of moments she'd be trapped, and a thrill of excitement coursed through Michael's veins at the prospect.
