Soooo, Silvia is posting on a Saturday? I believe the regular readers of my blog noticed the oddity of that, huh?
I understand, I would be off for the weekend if it wasn't for the fact that Darkest Sins is turning 4 today . . .


Wait . . . Does that mean I've officially been blogging and reviewing for 4 years?


Gosh, I am! Darkest Sins is 4-years-old and I'm . . . Well, older but so damn happy!!

This week's pick: NOWHERE BUT HERE by Katie McGarry
Expected publication: May 26th, 2015 by Harlequin Teen

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

What do you think? And what are you waiting for?

"Gaming for Keeps" by Seleste deLaney



GAMING FOR KEEPS BY SELESTE DELANEY

SERIES: Agents of TRAIT #1
PUBLISHER: Entangled Ignite
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Free E-copy from Amazon

SUMMARY
Pen Holloway’s done with men—in real life. Guys in game are so much less drama. But when her partner from Heroes of Fallen Gods invites her to the convention of the year, she panics. What if he’s another jerk? What if he’s not? Cal Burrows is living his dream of being a spy. One of TRAIT’s misfit spies, but still a spy. It’s the perfect job… until an arms dealer with a taste for blood invades his not-so-secret geek haven. All Cal wanted from ConDamned was to meet his on-line girl. Now, with the threat of mass murder looming, he’s forced to choose between keeping his mission a secret and protecting the girl of his dreams.Despite their attraction, Pen can’t help but suspect Cal’s hiding something. She also can’t shake the feeling he’s not as much of a stranger as he seems.

MY REVIEW

A blogger friend of mine recommended this title to me while it was free, telling me that—since I'm into geeky reads—I would have loved this one. Well, it took me just seconds to one-click it and one sitting to devour/fall for it! If you think short reads can't be that much well executed, you should grab this title and re-think that. Fast but well delivered, the story is original and catchy with very likable characters. I really liked deLaney's writing and the fact that she used references a nerd can only love, but even the non-nerdy ones can still appreciate and not feel lost during the whole read.

With the right dose of action, great chemistry and fun flirty lines, this story hooked me and I loved it! I would honestly recommend it to anyone who's up for a quick, refreshing and satisfying read.

RATING: 4/5

"Tangled" by Emma Chase



TANGLED BY EMMA CHASE

SERIES: Tangled #1
PUBLISHER: Gallery Books
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Review copy received from the publisher

SUMMARY
Drew Evans makes multimillion-dollar business deals and seduces New York's most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He'll tell you he has the flu, but we all know that's not really true. When Katherine Brooks is hired as the new associate at Drew's father's investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy's life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating. How can one woman turn a smooth-talking player into a broken, desperate man? By making the one thing he never wanted in life the only thing he can't live without.

MY REVIEW

I've always heard lots of great things about this book from fellow bloggers who got me curious not just about Drew Evans, but also about Emma Chase's writing. I mean, how can you not get intrigued when someone tells you they cracked up and swooned at the same time until the very end? And yet, nothing could have prepared me for the tears in my eyes while laughing like crazy.

Drew's inner dialogue is priceless and it's definitely what makes this a brilliant book. At times you can't believe what he says/thinks, but rest assured that it won't stop you from laughing or giggling. In fact, right because of Drew's spontaneous 'truths', you're going to do that even more and out loud! But this handsome, spoiled man has more than just laughs to offer the readers and certainly Kate, who may not find everything so funny after all... Swooning is assured as much as being totally entertained by the banter between the couple and, cherry on top, a few fantastic characters give you an even greater time. OMG the fun!

I'm simply thrilled to have tried this title. I'm an avid reader but, previous to this book, I still had to find a read so outrageously funny. Refreshing, sexy and hilarious, I totally recommend it!

RATING: 4.5/5

This week's teaser: THE SHADOWS by J.R. Ward

It was straight-up crazy.
She was a virtuous servant of the Scribe Virgin's, and he was a reformed sex addict with a life-in-prison-type sentence hanging over his head—and yet, according to his cock and balls, this was a recipe for true love.
