To get to him, I need to use her.

It will be easy. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again.

She’s just a girl.
A tool to get what I want.

Review: HADES: Demonica 11.5 by Larissa Ione

Catastrophe may have earned her name, though it was still a dick-move of Raphael to to stick her with the moniker as her wings were removed and she joined the ranks of the Unfallen. Cat isn't about to let anything discourage her though. Ever since she's joined Azagoth and Lilliana's household, she's been eager to please them and to earn a chance to regain her wings and her place in Heaven. She drools over the deliciously sexy Jailer of the Underworld, Hades.

True to her name, where Cat goes, catastrophe follows...and accidentally releasing a few unauthorized souls into Hades's realm causes a cataclysm that could lead to Armageddon (again)...can she and Hades stop pending disaster before it's too late? 
THANK YOU, Ms. Ione, for giving me another great story to enjoy. Hades was easily a read-in-one-sitting type of book. I found it nearly impossible to put down. I dreaded it coming to an end as I wanted it to go on and on. Ms. Ione has a way of wrapping me up in her imaginary world, allowing me to forget that I'm not a part of it.

The sizzling hot sparks that flew between Hades and Cat kept the pages smoldering as Cat did everything she could to entice Hades, which was no easy task. I enjoyed watching Hades and Cat's relationship grow and would love to have seen Hades divert more of Cat's inadvertent disasters, I see that being a constant occurrence throughout their relationship. I hope to see more of them in future demonica novels. One thing I love about reading a series is revisiting favorite past characters, it was good to see Azagoth, Lilliana, and Reaver again.

As with all of Ms. Ione's novels, now that I've completed Hades I eagerly await her next book.


Somewhere outside Azagoth’s Greek-style mansion, a bird of prey screeched. Cat loved hearing it. Not long ago, Sheoul-gra had been a dead realm, a physical manifestation of Azagoth’s emotional state. Dark and dreary, the “Gra,” as it was sometimes called, had resembled a toxic wasteland that couldn’t support any animal or plant life that wasn’t straight out of Hell itself.
But Lilliana’s love had changed Azagoth, and with it, his realm.
Now, when Cat strolled outside the palace, the grounds and buildings surrounding it teemed with life, from the lush grass, leafy green trees, and sparkling water, to rabbits, birds, and even the occasional fox or deer.
Smiling, she put down her feathered duster and headed from Azagoth’s pool room toward the mansion’s entrance, and as she rounded a corner, she collided with a body.
A huge, muscular body.
An instant, hot tingle pricked her skin as she leaped backward, crashing into something behind her. She heard something break, but at the moment, it didn’t matter.
This was the first time she’d touched Hades. The first time her ability to sense good and evil as a physical symptom on the surface of her skin had triggered. At least, it was the first time with Hades.
She’d always suspected he’d give off an intense blast of evil, but she hadn’t expected the evil to be tempered by a ribbon of goodness. She also hadn’t expected to be so...aroused by the vibes he gave off. Then again, merely looking at him aroused her, so why wouldn’t touching him do the same?
He stood there, bare-chested and wearing a skin-tight pair of silver pants that showed every ropey muscle and presented that impressive bulge at his groin like a gift. Criminy, he might as well be naked. She wished he was naked.
“E-excuse me,” she squeaked.
He looked down at her, one corner of his perfect mouth tipped up in a half-smile. Which was a first. Everyone seemed to get smiles but her.

HADES - teaser

About HADES:

A fallen angel with a mean streak and a mohawk, Hades has spent thousands of years serving as Jailor of the Underworld. The souls he guards are as evil as they come, but few dare to cross him. All of that changes when a sexy fallen angel infiltrates his prison and unintentionally starts a riot. It’s easy enough to quell an uprising, but for the first time, Hades is torn between delivering justice — or bestowing mercy — on the beautiful female who could be his salvation…or his undoing.

Thanks to her unwitting participation in another angel’s plot to start Armageddon, Cataclysm was kicked out of Heaven and is now a fallen angel in service of Hades’s boss, Azagoth. All she wants is to redeem herself and get back where she belongs. But when she gets trapped in Hades’s prison domain with only the cocky but irresistible Hades to help her, Cat finds that where she belongs might be in the place she least expected…

Review: HAVOC: The Dred Chronicles Book #2 by Ann Aguirre

In this fast-paced, action-packed sequel to Ann Aguirre's Perdition, where she first introduced us to the dangerous inhabitants of the prison ship who were divided into warring six territories, always striving to expand their domains. We met the Dread Queen, leader of the Queensland territory, Dredsdemona “Dred” Devos, and the mercenary, Jael as they fought to maintain and expand their boundaries with their allies.Havoc picks up shortly after Perdition ends, jumping right into a new battle. As Dred, Jael, Tameron, and Martine go to meet a supply ship, they soon learn their mistake. It's not supplies that have been sent to the prison ship, but mercenaries sent by the Conglomerate to obliterate the convicts of Perdition. The surprise is on the mercs though, as they were expecting chaos and disorder, but not that the inmates would attack back with well-versed tactics. 
Even when things look bleak, the Dread Queen refuses to relinquish her position without a fight, can Dred, Jael, Tam, Martine, and the other prisoners hold their ground, or is this the end...

Havoc is an exhilarating thrill-ride that has completely enthralled me. I absolutely love reading the Dred Chronicles, and if reading is an addiction, I'm not ready to be weaned off. I'm going through some serious withdrawals as I'm anxiously awaiting the final installment Breakout (not until AUGUST!).

Dred is a kick-ass, awesome character that I'm eager to keep reading about. I love her interactions with individuals on the ship and the chemistry that flows between her and Jael. She is a leader that knows who she can show her weaknesses to and who not to. Her crew are are eager to follow her and are proud to say they belong to the Dread Queen's gang...heck I want to be part of her gang!

I cannot get enough of Jael—and I just discovered that I can get more of him in Ann Aguirre's Sirantha Jax series! I am totally glomming onto that—Jael has never opened himself up to others as he does to Dred and as I read it, I would really like it if he'd open up to me *wink-wink*. I can't get enough of him, he's proved that he's not just a sexy warrior, but his tender side has shown through and he's proven to be a clever strategist too.

Not only am I drawn to Dred and Jael, but Ms. Aguirre has engulfed me into the entire character line-up as I feel so invested with these characters that I hope we get to see them earn their freedom.

Amanda Black's THE SINGLE GAME cover reveal, Book #3 Apartment Novels series

Cover Reveal: The Single Game
By Amanda Black singlegame_final copy

In this third, stand-alone installment of Amanda Black’s Apartment Novels series, sparks fly during a sexy party game.

When Eden Foster’s parents tell her they’re moving from the suburbs of Chicago to the tiny farm town of Aledo, Illinois, Eden is crushed. That is, until she runs crying to her jock boyfriend, who she finds on top of her so-called best friend. Moving’s not looking so bad anymore.

Now a senior at Mercer County High, Eden is ready to re-enter the dating scene. Still burned over the betrayal of her ex, she’s looking for someone sweet and innocent. With the help of her two new friends, Zoe and Amy, Eden makes a list of what she’s looking for: an eager virgin, ready for training—and no jocks.

Eden thinks she’s found what she’s looking for in Logan Black, a shy and geeky classmate. But why are Zoe and Amy convinced that the answer to her search is a party game…with kissing?

Eden better get ready, because she’s about to play the Single Game.

The Single Game is the latest addition to the erotic Apartment Novels series, which began with Lily and Ethan in The Apartment and The Blank Canvas.
