Final Cover Into You

SYNOPSIS:

“You start out with the best of intentions, but inevitably you hurt each other. I love you, but that didn’t stop me from hurting you last night, or this morning. Love sucks. It’s just the way it is.”

Falling in love is easy. But what happens when that love has been tossed aside and trampled on by the person who swore to cherish it? Can you ever trust again, or will the bitter taste of betrayal keep you from allowing anyone else in?

Carter and Elizabeth come with their own baggage. Both have had their hearts broken and carry the scars of the past into their relationship with each other. Is love ever enough? Can it overcome?

By allowing the wrong person into her heart Elizabeth only knew of love tainted with secrets and lies. Can Carter convince her he wants the whole package, heart, body and soul? As Carter attempts to faces his past with Elizabeth by his side, it continues to haunt him at every turn. Can he let go and believe in her enough to leave his past behind him, or will he push too hard and send her running into another man’s arms?

Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge fan of Danielle Sibarium. Don’t even get me started on how much I love her Heart Wave series. So when she asked me to read Into You I jumped at the chance. I was not disappointed. from the minute I met Elizabeth and Carter I was hooked. Both of them meet at time they are trying to deal with betrayal in their past.

The story is told through Elizabeth and Carter’s POV. Elizabeth is a strong character, which I love. She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t. Elizabeth is not afraid to state her mind and fight for what she thinks is right. I love that she didn’t just give in to Carter and actually made him work for her attention. She is the perfect woman for him, because she knows how to love him without judgement. Her past makes it hard for her to trust, but also makes it possible for her to love with all her heart.

Then there is Carter. Can we all say sexy. He has trust issues, but after what he’s been through who can blame him. The horrid betrayal he’s been through has left him broken and at times cold and hotheaded . Through Carter’s choice of career you can see the amazing man hiding through the pain. Elizabeth comes into his life at the perfect time. It’s nice to watch Carter grow through the book and be able to admit when he’s wrong.

Now can we talk about how hot this book is? There were times I even found myself blushing. Carter and Elizabeth have a chemistry that oozes through the pages. They have a hard time keeping their hands off each other, which trust me is a good thing. Together they learn to love again, but most of all how to trust. Their love is hot, but it’s also sweet. I just loved them together.

Danielle Sibarium has an amazing talent of writing characters that stay with you even weeks after you finish the book. She writes a love story like no other and you will stay up late flipping through the pages and falling in love. I am counting down the days for next book to come out.

Book Review: The Time Zombies Became the Least of My Worries By Jen Naumann

zombie2-cover2

Book Description: 

Ever since the zombie virus hit Emma’s irritatingly boring Midwestern hometown, she’s been on the run with her old best friend-turned-boyfriend Finn. On their journey, they’ve witnessed some pretty disgusting deaths, narrowly escaped life-threatening escapades that sometimes included one of their own pulling a gun on them numerous times, and redefined the definition of what makes up a family (as it turns out, soldiers and geeks can be pretty decent). They’ve even learned the disturbing truth behind the mysterious virus. But after Emma was bit by one of the infected trying to save her neighbor boy, she was told she would not have long to live.
In the thrilling sequel to The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life, Finn will help to tell the story as Emma and the gang are faced with the most crucial life-changing decisions yet. They’ll come across an unfortunate group of rednecks, discover the truth of what happened to Finn’s federal agent mother, and finally see a chance at truly being safe without having to run anymore. But in the middle of it all, Emma and Finn’s relationship will soar to completely uncomfortable levels when Finn takes things one step too far. And between being injected with an unknown liquid, taking on a completely unexpected (and really agitating alliance), and being left for dead by those she loves most, Emma will realize that zombies are the least of her worries.

I first fell in love with this series when I read The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life. I couldn’t wait for the sequel to come out. When I got my hands on a ARC I was so excited I couldn’t stop jumping for joy. And I’m so happy to say the sequel did not disappoint. From the very first chapter I found myself hooked. I couldn’t stop laughing out loud and cheering for our group of misfits. Jen has an amazing talent bring comedy to her writing without trying too hard. I love the chemistry all the characters have with each other. You really feel like you know them. Emma is definitely the star of this book. I love how carefree she is, even when she’s dealing with turning into a zombie. Emma is one tough girl. She doesn’t just sit around waiting to be saved, but instead is fighting along side the guys. Without giving anything away Emma turns out to be a hero in more ways then one.

Let’s talk about Finn. He’s as hot and romantic as he is in the first book. His love for Emma makes him protective of her. He doesn’t care who he pisses off as long as he’s taking care of Emma. If there’s ever a Zombie outbreak I hope I have someone like Finn to protect me.

If you think all the hidden secretes were revealed in the first book you are dead wrong. The Time Zombies Became the Least of My Worries still manages to shock the reader. Many times my jaw hit the floor. I kept thinking I did not see that coming. I truly enjoyed reading every page in this book and never found myself board. Besides laughing out loud I also had my heart racing with all the twists. Most loved the relationship between Emma and Finn. But most of all I loved the relationship between Emma and Finn with all the other characters.
