The best book of Melissa Foster for me
I have read so many books of Melissa Foster and Tru Blue is my new best book of her from me. My goodness gracious! this book will wreck your heart. It is such a heart-warming story, so raw, so emotional and melt your heart away like licking an ice cream on a scorching hot Summer days. Be prepare to blow your mind away.
Tru is selfish enough to admit a crime he did not commit to saved his brother’s life. He went to prison to pay for the damaged so his brother will have a better life. It turned out chaotic with a drug addict mother who brought innocent kids. This story is so much love and beautiful but crazy friendship. I loved every minute I spent reading on my Nook. I read it last night and finished in the morning. This book is hard to put it down.
When destiny strikes you, you cannot escape it. Tru and Gemma have different life andlifestyles. One unexpected night their attraction is undeniable. This book is so hot. It makes you weak on your knees. You will never love to stop eating ice cream when you read this book. Kennedy as shy and adorable she is, you will love and wrap her tiny fingers around you. The sweetest book I ever read from the author. This book is more than five stars to me.

“An intriguing, sexy story about unexpected love and balancing others’ expectations against your heart”
NYT Bestselling Author Shayla Black
“The third book in Wild’s Bridge series is a fantastic read, certain to woo new readers and satiate her returning fans. Over the Edge checks off all the boxes: it’s emotional, intense and extremely sexy. Wild taps into an often thought of as taboo fantasy — one woman sharing two men — and makes it a possibility, allowing the reader to live vicariously through the main character. While this is part of the Bridge series, it’s also effective as a standalone novel.”

Desperate to carve out a life that is truly hers, Liv walks away from it all and takes on the challenge of helping her brothers open a chain of fitness centers in New York City. Just as she’s beginning to find her footing in a new place, she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more determined to turn all her goodness inside out.
Will Donovan has the capital to make the Bridge brothers’ entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Taking their uptight sister to bed seems a reasonable perk for the risk. Liv is the smartest, sexiest prude Will’s ever met, and he can’t wait to break her down.
Life is too short for Ian Savo to play by anyone’s rules. Sharing women with his friend isn’t anything new, so when Will introduces him to Liv, he can’t wait to get a taste. But falling for the same girl, or falling at all, was never in the plans…
The Bridge Series follows Cameron, Darren, and Olivia Bridge, three siblings living in New York City. Desperate to break away from the crushing expectations of their wealthy and privileged and equally broken family, they carve out a new path together. But can they find real love along the way?

What a very unusual love story but oh so good!
I am not a fan of threesome but this story is very unique. It portrays the threesome so beautifully. You will be amazed at the same time can’t help but fall in-love with these three. It is very raw and emotional. It is very intense as well. Prepare to be blown away. My very first book of the author. I loved how she wrote this story. I cannot wait to read the other two books of the series.
The characters are so vulnerable and touching. The three is not complete if one is missing. True love is so powerful. It heals their past and especially their heart and soul. What a very unusual love story but oh so good. Blood is always thicker than water. Family will always comes first. I really enjoyed reading this story. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a very interesting and did I forget this book is very hot.

About The Book
Sometimes the Sweetest Drop Can Ruin You…
Lord Vladimir – better known as the badass vampire from the past, is awakened to serve his kindred as commander of the brood. Little did he anticipate, he’d be responsible for protecting humans as his own, and must follow a set of rules to co-exist. He doesn’t do rules, and the lines become blurred when he falls in love with her…
Trinity James – a film student, aspiring to be a talent agent ~ with vibrant blue eyes worth dying for.
The problem is… she hates vampires. With a passion.
Her father died in a war fighting against vampires. A war which later ended in a peace pact between the species. She’s been reluctant to follow the rules ever since.
Can Lord Vladimir change her mind about vampires, or will his love for her leave him heartbroken and destroyed?
“WAS THE BLUR that just flew out of my window a vampire?” I question my thoughts as I come to a sitting position while rubbing my eyes. I blow out a breath as I throw my legs over the side of the bed, and stumble over to the window to look out. Even late at night, the city is in fast motion—bright lights flashing in every direction among the lively streets. Neither the fabulous scene nor cool night air tickling my skin simmers down the anger inside me. I resent the fact that vampires have free reign over this city at night—coming and going as they damn well please. When ten years ago, before the War of the Worlds (sadly, a war my father lost his life fighting in), a vampire had to be invited in. You would think by now they would have learned the art of knocking.
Even if they had, they would always be savages, heartless beasts. Blood-sucking scum in my eyes.
I hate vampires!
All except for one… my best friend, Delia. I frown, slamming the window shut.
I never see her anymore!
Thanks to her newly acquired vampire transformation. Months ago, our aspirations had finally gotten in the way of our friendship and sent us in polar opposite directions. I’m a Columbia University film student aspiring to be a talent agent while Delia on the other hand, has a more eccentric career choice in mind.
Growing up, she never wanted to be a famous movie star or doctor like most girls. She wanted to be a vampire, Lady of the Brood to be exact. And in a way, she’d obtained her dream job. Word on the street is she was chosen by the elders council or some shit, to be a subservient (a fancy word meaning slave) for some historical hotshot vampire named Lord Vladimir. Oh, please.

It’s a recipe for heartbreak.
In a war that pits Lucifer against the Army of Heaven, it’s a recipe for disaster.
The lives of Adryel and Ramael, two young angels who are in love, are altered forever when God determines to create humans.
His decision is met with scorn from Lucifer, one of the archangels. The humans, he asserts, will cause evil and chaos throughout creation. God’s proposal, he says, is flawed. As Lucifer debates the plan’s merits with another archangel in Palace Square, their discussion turns into argument.
Argument leads to insults, rocks are thrown… and battle lines are drawn.
Ramael is second in command of the Army of Heaven. His loyalty never waivers.
Adryel casts her lot with Lucifer. Swayed by his arguments, she leaves Ramael and all else she holds dear. She wages war for Lucifer’s cause and, refusing to renounce him, is exiled in hell.
From there, she tempts the humans to join their cause.
Adryel yearns to tell Ramael her love for him has not dimmed. She will risk any punishment, even hell’s lake of fire, in order to speak with him. But how can he return her love when she has done more to thwart God’s plans for humanity than have all of the other angels in hell combined?

The devil always disguise but he will never win This book is unusual from Mr. Burnett’s typical book that I read. It is a unique read. Though I am not religious, this book gives me more knowledge from the book of Genesis and the beginning. It is a very interesting read.
The devil always disguise but he will never win. Adryel is such a beautiful angel but she outcast the power of Lucifer. It is a constant battle in real life to choose good from evil. We always picked the good but sometimes we got lost in choosing the evil. Temptation is so hard to resist. I loved reading this book. It gives me views what the “pit” is all about. It is scary to get there in the other life. We have to choose the right path to avoid going to the big pit. This book is fun to read. If you like to read religion and fantasy then Between Heaven And Hell is one amazing book to read.
