GUEST REVIEW: The Mephisto Mark by Trinity Faegen

GUEST REVIEW: The Mephisto Mark by Trinity Faegen

GUEST REVIEW FROM ISIS Read from September 06 to 13, 2013 First I would like to take a moment to thank Pink Publishing, LLC for granting g me the privilege of reading an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. The fact that I received the book for free in no way impacts the content of my review. This book actually rates a 3.5 for me, but closer to 4 than 3, so I rounded up. This book deals with domestic abuse, pedophilia, and rape, so please be forewarned that this is intended for a more mature audience. I will start by saying that this is the third book in the Mephisto Covenant series, but works as a stand-alone, which is how I read it. Please be aware that there are potential spoilers for the prior two books within the review, so turn back if you’ve yet… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Life, Love, & Lemons by Magan Vernon

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Life, Love, & Lemons by Magan Vernon

REVIEW Poor Bentley. Literally, poor Bentley. She used to be rich but her dad lost his job, and then the house, and then her private school education, and her friends. Now she’s living in a small two bedroom apartment on the wrong side of town and is going to a school with metal detectors and has a nice gang problem going on. Enter boy-next-door, who is sorta punk/goth, Kai. I loved Kai. In fact, I wish he had more time in this book because he was fantastic. A nice walking contradiction—is he a bad boy with his tattoos and piercings? Or is he a good boy who respects his God-fearing mother. Well, he’s both, so I liked that. He’s got his own set of rules in life, probably based on his mother’s religion, but I like young adult books about kids who can stretch the limits but always know where… Read more »

Assuming she will be an outcast amongst the other teens at the campground still does not prepare her for the treatment she receives, which is far worse than she imagined. She also isn’t prepared for Travis, the campground owner’s son and the “Sexiest” guy she has ever laid eyes on. Travis is the only one who shows any interest in getting to know Paige. The only problem is that they have to explore what lies between them in secret. But once all the secrets are stripped away, the truth may be crushing. ***Intended for mature audiences due to language and sexual content***… Read more »

COVER REVEAL: GREED by Fisher Amelie

GREED  by Fisher Amelie (Book 2 in the Seven Deadly Series) DESCRIPTION Gather ‘round, love, because I want you. I want what you have, I want what you don’t have, I want more of what I already have.

Review: Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo

Review: Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo

If you’ve been hanging around here at New Adult Addiction over the last week, you know that Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo is now available. If you read Julie’s review yesterday, you know it rocks. (Make sure to check out her giveaway too.) Just in case we haven’t convinced you to try out the Shattered Hearts series yet, today I bring you another review. What I liked: I usually hate love triangles. Immensely. But sometimes they just work, and this was one of those times. I think the reason I didn’t get so irritated with it as I often do is because I could see the reasons behind it. Claire wasn’t flaky, or stupid or majorly indecisive. She was honest with both Adam and Chris, and that made a big difference. While I loved Adam in Relentless, he wasn’t my favorite character in Pieces of You, so I’m glad… Read more »
