Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2)

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)
Goodreads:
Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. The convent views Sybella, naturally skilled in the arts of both death and seduction, as one of their most dangerous weapons. But those assassin's skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?
My Stars:
5 stars!

I loved Sybella. Her story is not one you'd forget and I am currently trying to remember Ismae's story..I'll have to reread the first book. I hate the convent. Really? They are a bunch of asshole psycho's who need to jump off a cliff. Excuse my French but hey. Sybella's story had me wanting to cry. She's been through a lot of shi...crap.
She's also very badass. Very very bad ass.  I loved when she and Beat were flirting. If that's what you would call it? Oh! I also loved how Mortain came and visited her. That was so sweet I nearly cried. No, I'm very serious. I really did nearly cry. It was so sweet. I was just like aawwww. That was most definitely a Kodak moment. Though it didn't exist back then.

My Review:
I absolutely loved this book! I love all books Cambria makes really but still. I loved Holt, the sexy fireman. Though his name reminded me of Holt from The Rangers Apprentice and I couldn't stop thinking about that. *Laughing* Katie...oh Katie. I didn't exactly like what she'd been through. It hurt me to know she'd been so alone for so long. But I didn't like her that much.
I'm sorry. Let me rephrase that, there was one thing I didn't like about her. She had too much pride. And if there isn't one thing that irritates me more it is a prideful person. I mean yes, you are supposed to have pride. It's your self confidence. She just had a little to much. She didn't want anyone helping her despite the fact she was homeless and that got on my nerves.
And she seemed a little fake because I know if an arsonist had been coming after me I would have been peeing my pants, not worrying about love and crap like that. And really, she wanted to protect Holt and stuff so why is it every time the arsonist came she cried out his name?
Cambria's first time doing a  Contemporary Romance  (Actually I think of it as second because Charmed [Death Escorts #2] had sexual stuff in it but it was paranormal, buuut still) it was really great! I mean you would think people would know how to write about sex and love but some people mess up. Despite the fact they taught about the subject in both middle school and high school. You would be surprised.  She on the other hand rocked it. And I am thankful to have gotten an ARC copy.

Charley Davidson series (1 and 2)

First Grave on the Right  (Book 1)
Second Grave on the Left (Book 2)
 
First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1)
 
Second Grave on the Left (Charley Davidson, #2)
 
 
Goodreads:
 
1st book:
A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper
Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.

 
2nd book:
When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can’t help but wonder what Cookie’s up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously? Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman’s name. Mimi’s husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.

Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He’s left his body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?
 
My Stars:
 
1st book:
4 stars
 
2nd book:
5 stars
 
My Review:
 
Both:

I loved both books equally. Except I liked the second more than the first. Maybe because Reyes is mentioned ever five second in the second book and I happen to love him. I love him so much. The first book I read was actually the third book in the series. That is why I'm so freaking obsessed with him and no I do not believe he is the anti-Christ no matter what the book says because they probably don't even know what the anti-Christ really is.

So now more about Reyes. I freaking love him. He's so heroic and sexy. I picture him in real life as that guy in the Disney movie Prom? Jessy or is it Jessey....Jessie? Okay. Apparently my correction thinks it's the last one okay. But that's his ideal image with me only sexier. Oh god. I love him.
I absolutely love Cookie and Amber and I don't really like Charley's step mother...or rather her entire family. I don't like. I had bad feelings about all of them at the beginning. I mean if my wife (husband) had treated my daughter like she was crazy I would have divorced her!! Gah!

**May be some spoilers...you'll just have to find out!**
OMG! I absolutely loved this book. Except for the ending. I never like how the ending of books turn out. (That mostly only applies for series. They never end happily till the last book in them.) I loved how Katie freaked out when Toby appeared in her life. I was laughing so hard I choked on my spit which wasn't very pleasant.
I loved the relationship Rhyn and Katie had. It was funny for me. Especially how he kind of kidnapped her. Or well not exactly kidnaps but held hostage. !!!! OH!
The scenes in hell were brilliant. I thought it was funny that they dropped the key into....opps! Can't tell you.I don't wish to spoil anything for you so I'll just stop talking. Or writing, I guess.

Octavian's Undoing (Sons of Judgement #1)

Octavian's Undoing (Sons of Judgment, #1)
Goodreads:
No good deed goes unpunished.

Riley Masters learns this the hard way when she finds a wallet and decides to do the right thing. But returning it will cost her much more than she bargains for.

Abandoned by her mother, raised by an indifferent father, Riley has accepted the fact that she would be alone always. She has no idea that a single act of kindness would propel her into a world where creatures that shouldn’t exist guard the human race from the demons that lurk in the shadows. That it will cost her the lives of those she loves while unearthing a destiny she never imagined with a man who is forbidden to love her. She finds passion, romance and the family she’d been searching for her entire life, but at what cost and what is she willing to sacrifice to find answers and happiness?

Octavian Maxwell has always known his place. He is a Caster, a Son of Judgment. His job is to protect the mortal world from the creatures plotting to destroy it. Instead, his world is shattered when a human girl walks into Final Judgment, a girl he has been searching for his entire life, a girl he is forbidden to ever touch. Being with her will break the oath he’s sworn to never love a mortal. But his heart has already found its mate and it refuses to let go.

Final Judgment… a place undetected, a gateway to evil and a legend that will undo everything anyone has ever known about our world.
My Stars:
4 Stars!
My Review:
This book irritated me if only a little. I loved Riley and how she supported her dad. I didn't like the fact that the dad was such a weak characters he would do the ultimate betrayal (to me it was the ultimate betrayal). I didn't like the fact that in this book 2 people actually fell in love with humans. Really? There was entirely too many things going on at once for me. And the author made Angels seem like complete merciless idiots! I was sooo frustrated at the Angels it made no sense what so ever.
 
I loved this book because of Octavian. Oh! And his father. I absolutely loved his father. *Dreamy sigh* I loved Octavian's brothers. They were the funny element of the book. I loved how Airicka described Octavian in his supernatural form. And I was pleased when Riley didn't run away screaming like a stupid little girl when she saw Octavian in his supernatural form.
 
I am totally going to read the second book. I loved this book mostly because I love all books that make me emotionally frustrated. It'd hard for authors to actually envoke such emotions in their readers now a days and she did just that!
