But it’s either cover the story on Jace’s band, Reckless, or lose the one thing that matters to her the most: her position at the campus paper. Only, as she begins to work on the column, Andrea learns that there’s more to the campus god than meets the eye.

My Swoon for this week comes from:

(Kanin Chronicles #1)
Amanda Hocking 

First - The Blurb:

Will she give up her dream to follow her heart?

Bryn Aven is determined to gain status amongst the Kanin, the most powerful of the hidden tribes. But as a half-blood, winning respect is a huge challenge. Bryn's almost-human community distrusts people, and those from other tribes are almost as suspect.
She has just one goal to get ahead: to join the elite guard protecting the Kanin royal family. And Bryn's vowed that nothing will stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss, Ridley Dresden.
But her plans are put on hold when fallen hero Konstantin starts acting dangerously. Bryn loved him once, but now he's kidnapping Kanin children - stealing them from hidden placements within human families. She's sent to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?

Second - The Swoon:

I stood frozen against him. I could feel the hard contours of his chest pressed against my back, warming me through my wet shirt, and I tried to slow the rapid beating of my heart so he wouldn't feel it. The whiskers from his beard tickled against my cheek and neck, and the skin of his hand felt rough on my lips. He smelled of cold, like ice and snow on the harshest days of winter.

This scene is not what it appears to be.

I first read Frostfire back in February. Now that I have the remaining two books in the series, I'm re-reading it before finishing the series.

My thoughts and rating can be found HERE.

Waiting on Wednesday # 53 ~ Embraced (The Eternal Balance #2) by Jus Accardo

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m waiting on: 

(The Eternal Balance #2)
Jus Accardo 

Expected publication: November 16th 2015

To gain a chance at heaven, they'll need to embrace hell…

Descended from Cain, the world's first murderer, Jax Flynn is destined to spend his life making others suffer. To shield the world from horrific chaos, he was forced to sacrifice the one and only thing he loved. Samantha Merrick.

Sam is special. She doesn't know how--or why--and she hasn't had any luck finding out. But there's a bright side to her life. She finally has Jax back. Sort of. They're living life on a strict look but don't touch policy, but with the explosive chemistry between them, keeping their hands to themselves is getting harder every day.

Unfortunately, keeping their libidos in check isn't Jax and Sam's biggest problem. When an enemy from the past resurfaces with an ultimatum--complete a simple task or Sam dies--they're backed into a corner. The goal? Kill a demon called Malphi. The problem? Jax's demon, Azirak, has no intention of letting that happen…
I liked the first book in this series... Ruined, so yeah, I'm looking forward to the release of this one.

So, what are you waiting for?

* ~ * ~ * ~ *

Dragon's Lair
(Wind Dragons MC #1)
Chantal Fernando 

First - The Blurb:

The first in a new sexy romance series from bestselling author Chantal Fernando about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them.

When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid. 

Or should I say, someone? 

Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in. 

I’m a law student. They’re criminals. He’s the vice president of a motorcycle club. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing. He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother. 

And I’m screwed.

Second - The Tease:

He leans down and kisses me, catching me off guard. At the first taste of his lips, a moan escapes me. his lips are soft, and he tastes like mint. His hand cups the back of my neck as he pulls me in, kissing me deeper. My tongue reaches out to touch his, inciting a moan from deep in his throat. He pulls back before I want him to, staring into my eyes, looking almost surprised.

I picked this book up from my local book store for only $2. It was a read that started off well, but as it continued, it became repetitive and began to lose my attention. I did finish it though. The ending, nothing I didn't see coming.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5

Fatal Exposure
(Desert Heat #1)
Jamie Jeffries

Dylan made Alex’s heart race and her blood pound when they were in high school. Then her dad caught them naked in her room and sent Dylan packing. Dylan left town a few weeks later, saying he’d never be back. They’re about to learn you should never say never. 

When they meet again four years later, over a mummified corpse in the blazing Arizona desert, what secrets is Dylan carrying, and why does he have to look so damn good? Alex, now a college student and aspiring investigative journalist, can’t decide whether she’d like to find out what she missed all those years ago, or help put him behind bars. 

Will she get the chance to make up her mind, before she's marked for murder herself?
