I'm a serious book and makeup lover!!! I started this blog mainly for reviews. Here you will get to see my opinion on books and makeup that I find amazing and some that I don't really have much care for. I would love to do some product reviews as well, but we'll see. Every now and again you may even see posts about my world and family. I hope you enjoy and I hope my book reviews make you want to lost in the written world of books!!!!

My Rating for this book:

Sorry Kido's but this book is JUST for ADULTS!!!! 

After trying to help a homeless man whose aura has him marked for death, Mia, is in more trouble than she knows. Soon she meets
Detective Cole Barnett. A man that shatters her world in more ways than one, and shows her a world of fear as well as desire.

My Review:

Okay so I open an email from a friend one day and she tells me I need to get in contact with Tina Carreiro about her book to see if she'd let me review it. So of course I did and I was so excited when she said yes and sent me an ebook!! I hadn't really heard anything about this book, all I knew was it was about Vampires. I was kinda nervous about reading it so It took me a couple days to even start it. Once I did I didn't want to stop!! I tried putting it down over and over but just couldn't!! It sucked me into another world that I didn't want to leave!! This book was so amazing, if I could give it more than 5 stars I SO WOULD!!!

Move over everyone Tina Carreiro is on fire and everyone is gonna get burned!! This book is by far the best book I have read this year or EVER actually!!! With Edward and Bella or Sookie, Bill, and Eric, yes there's passion but it's nothing compared to the passion between Mia and Cole!! I was amazed with the characters in this book and how you can almost immediately connect with each and every one of them. It's rare for me to be so satisfied with every aspect of a book, and let me tell you this book will have you craving for more!!!

Mia not wanting anyone to know about her powers has a run in with two men at work causing her to have to tell a room full of people about what she can do. Due to the situation with the two men she meets Detective Cole Barnett who also has a secret of his own! This book has everything you could want love, hate, sex, drama, secrets, and terror this book truly is SENSATIONAL!!!

With all of the love/hate passion between Mia and Cole it was like an emotional roller coaster taking you for the ride of your life!!! I definitely LOVE books that take you through different emotions and you actually feel them while your reading, like it's you not the character. This book does exactly that!! When Cole and Mia are in the elevator, Man oh man, is all I have to say about that!! *SIGH* The graveyard scene was by far the best out of all the intimate scenes in the book, it left me breathless!!!

What Mia can do is amazing! I don't really remember ever reading about a character that can do what she can so that was a nice change from the usual. Like a breath of fresh air. The way this story unfolds from her in her workplace to the dangerous and exiting events that go on is so exhilarating!! The passion these two characters have for each other is so intense. In some moments I was screaming in my head at Mia to just give in and  let him take others I just wanted to smack some sense into her and tell her not to let true love pass her by...and at one point I was yelling at Cole to quit fighting his feelings to comfort her, to not worry about what the others may think of him!! I was so mesmerized at how much I was into this book!!!!

Cynthia, Mia's best friend, is like the bff every girl wants!! Even with her boyfriend Kevin in her life she still makes time for "girls night out" and her bff. These two characters are also amazing. What Kevin does to save his true love is phenomenal!!

If you haven't read this book yet you NEED to!! It will take you for a ride of swirling emotions that you will love with every chapter!!

I seriously CAN NOT wait for the 2nd book to come out and read more about Mia and Cole!!! I'm so gonna buy this book when it comes out in paperback so I can relive this world over and over!!!!

  11. Stopping by from the blog hop and a new follower thru GFC and RSS Reader. I love to read also and just joined two sites that let you do reviews on books. If it is a very good book I can't put it down til I am finished which is usually in a day. (I don't have any children so that makes it easier) But I have about 5 bookcases full of books. Some I sell at yard sales, give away as gifts and some that I keep if they are part of a series. I would love a follow back on both GFC and RSS when you get a chance. I did not see FB or Twitter and if you have those and want me to follow let me know when you come visit. Have a great weekend!
