OUAA synopsis

Racing against time, NSA Agent Joaquin Muñoz is searching for a little girl who vanished twenty years ago with a dangerous secret. Since Bailey Benson fits the profile, Joaquin abducts the beauty and whisks her to the safety of Club Dominion—before anyone can silence her for good.

At first, Bailey is terrified, but when her captor demands information about her past, she’s stunned. Are her horrific visions actually distant memories that imperil all she holds dear? Confined with Joaquin in a place that echoes with moans and breathes passion, he proves himself a fierce protector, as well as a sensual Master who’s slowly crawling deeper in her head…and heart. But giving in to him might be the most delicious danger of all.

Because Bailey soon learns that her past isn’t the only mystery. Joaquin has a secret of his own—a burning vengeance in his soul. The exposed truth leaves her vulnerable and wondering how much about the man she loves is a lie, how much more is at risk than her heart. And if she can trust him to protect her long enough to learn the truth.

Unseen by Amber Lynn Natusch

 

Welcome to the Kingdom of Hades, where even its prodigal princess sleeps lightly.

After fighting Soul Stealers in Detroit, Khara hoped to return home to find answers in her father’s realm. But the land of the dead offers little information, and far too much tragedy. Now cut off from her brothers, and left only with her dark and unreliable companion Oz, Khara must navigate the centuries-old webs of deceit and betrayal, all while eluding the Underworld’s most depraved inhabitant. But she soon finds an unexpected ally in her adopted sister Persephone. Together, they endeavor to right a terrible wrong. And as Khara soon discovers, there’s more riding on her success than she ever thought possible.

 

If you’re lost at all now, that’s because you absolutely have to read book one first this time. Otherwise, you will be totally lost and not understand half (or more) of the storyline.

 

Unseen picks up where we left off in book one without much backstory that you tend to see in some books which are meant to be more stand alone than read in a series time. I find this refreshing as those types of books tend to be repetitive when you’ve read the preceding book and slightly annoying in as much.

 

The change in Oz is incredible as he becomes like a dark, psychotic guardian angel. I’m not sure why so many people are rooting for their relationship to succeed. Perhaps it’s the underdog aspect? Or maybe it’s that most women love to be able to fix someone and Oz definitely presents as the ultimate fixer up boyfriend – poor, misunderstand, and evil.

 

Khara does finally get some answers, however, she unfortunately develops even more questions. It may seem like she’s lived her life in an emotionless void, but I don’t feel that is the case. I think she’s more like Spock and feels very deeply (take the sudden bond with her brothers for example) except the emotions just do not show on the surface. It appears that her public mask has started to crack and we’re finally getting a glimpse of what lies beneath. Keep in mind that where she was raised (Hades) emotions were seen as a weakness, and weaknesses got you killed, exploited, or any number of other things that you did not want to happen.


I feel like book two is even better than book one which I absolutely loved! The future looks bright for book three and I, for one, can not wait to see where it take us. My personal hope is to learn more about Khara’s mysterious mother, but only time will tell.

OUAA synopsis

When I proposed to Livie Dusek, I didn’t really think that she’d say yes, but I was glad she did. Marrying her would keep my inheritance secure and my dad off of my back. Then we slept together and I thought things were even better. I had no idea.

Ladies’ man and partier Blayne Westmore has been forced into marriage, but his Czech wife is smoking hot and seems to have gone back on her previous rule about no touching…or has she?

Livie doesn’t know why her business-only husband has suddenly decided it’s okay to try to kiss her, or why he keeps saying that they’ve slept together. She hopes her sister Katka isn’t right that Blayne is just trying to get her into bed, but she’s determined to rebuff his advances as much as possible. Once her three years are up and she has her money, she’s done, and nothing that Blayne says will stop her.

Volume two in M.S. Parker’s sexy new series is full of twists, turns and heat. Don’t miss it!

Unborn by Amber Lynn Natusch

cover52173-medium

 

Khara is the adopted daughter of Hades. Yes, that Hades, the God of the Underworld. She splits her time between an adoptive mother Demeter, who hates her, and a loving father. Unfortunately for Khara her time in the Underworld comes to an abrupt end at the hands of a Dark One. He brings her to a dark and empty alley in Detroit and abandons her there without a word. She’s quickly found by one of the immortal warriors who guard the city. What results is a fast paced ride into chaos, destruction, and finding out what things are worth fighting for.

 

Unborn is 258 pages full of riddle, action, adventure, and mythology.


I really enjoy when the title the author picks is explained in the book and is not immediately clear. It’s like a little puzzle for me to figure out. I loved the fresh spin on mythology, sprinkled with urban fantasy, and topped with a dash of dystopian. The world is so richly detailed, I can immediately feel myself there beside Khara. I also believe that Khara is a character with whom those who have been adopted will relate. She goes through many struggles to find out information about who she really is, who her parents are, and why was she given up. While I have not previously read anything by author Amber Lynn Natusch, that is something that I will quickly remedy. She is to be congratulated on her world & character building as they are utterly superb.
