A weekly event hosted by Kathryn at the Book Date to discuss your reading week ~ the books you’ve read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

Finished Last Week
Devious by L.J Shen

Jusqu’où ira-t-il pour obtenir une seconde chance ?

Devious. Un nom synonyme de danger, de désir, de décadence. Le nom de celui qui lui a brisé le cœur. Rosie n’avait que dix-huit ans lorsque Devious l’a trompée avec sa sœur. Cette expérience l’a détruite, et elle s’est juré de ne plus jamais avoir affaire à lui. Mais voilà que, dix ans plus tard, Devious revient dans sa vie, encore plus sexy et surtout plus déterminé que dans ses souvenirs. Car, s’il est revenu, c’est pour une raison bien précise : obtenir une deuxième chance. Et Rosie sait qu’avec Devious la fuite n’est pas une option ; alors il ne lui reste qu’une seule solution : faire face au démon de son passé.

A propos de l’auteur
L.J. Shen s’est imposée dès son tout premier roman comme une voix incontournable de la romance New Adult – un succès confirmé dès la parution de Vicious qui s’est immédiatement hissé en tête de tous les palmarès de vente. Quand elle n’écrit pas, L.J. Shen est une véritable badass (comprendre qu’elle aime passer du temps avec sa famille et ses amis dans sa Californie d’adoption, regarder ses séries préférées ou lire un bon livre).

The Prophecy by Jennifer L Armentrout

History is on repeat…

Seth never thought he’d have a future. But now he’s on the brink of having it all with Josie: A tomorrow. A family. A forever. And all that’s standing between him and that forever is the Titans. If he helps Josie entomb them — without killing them, a nearly impossible task for him — everything he could ever want will be in reach. But he soon realizes that as a god, every little choice he makes can reshape the world for the better… or worse. And in meddling with the Titans, Seth may have just set into motion catastrophic consequences that will force the Olympians to enter the mortal realm and reshape the delicate balance of power that keeps the world from total collapse.

A price must be paid…

Entombing the Titans is Josie’s top priority. After all, it was what she was born to do. But the plans her father put into play to help her are no longer an option, and the odds she and Seth face in forging their own path are grim. The escalating violence between halfs and pures only increases the danger closing in on them and their friends. Josie knows their chances of succeeding in their task are slim at best — and if they fail, they might lose everything. But she also knows she’s not fighting just for herself — she’s fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together with the Army of Awesome, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled…

Tant que tu m’aimes de N.C Bastian

Leur amour a-t-il encore une chance ?

Gaby est complètement perdue. Junior vient de la demander en mariage devant toute l’équipe de basket et, surtout, devant Kylian, l’homme qu’elle n’a jamais cessé d’aimer. Tous ces regards braqués sur elle n’attendent qu’une seule chose : sa réponse. Pourtant, elle ne peut se résoudre à faire un choix. Si elle refuse, Junior, celui qui l’a soutenue lorsqu’elle en avait besoin et qui compte sur elle, en souffrira, mais, si elle accepte, elle perdra alors tout espoir de reconquérir un jour Kylian. Depuis tout ce temps, elle a toujours pensé que leur histoire méritait une seconde chance, qu’elle n’aurait jamais dû se terminer. Mais, aujourd’hui, Gaby n’est plus sûre de rien… Doit-elle encore y croire ?

Bane Seed tome 1 de Fanny André

Bane Seed est une Banshee aguerrie, pourfendeuse d’hommes infidèles, violeurs et meurtriers. Elle adore son job et le pratique avec zèle. Un peu trop, peut-être. Suite à une erreur commise, elle écope d’une mise à l’épreuve et se retrouve affectée au Conseil, une organisation chargée du maintien de l’ordre parmi les peuples faes. Non seulement elle doit régler un conflit entre deux clans du Petit Peuple, mais comble de malchance, on lui adjoint l’Incube Dorian Murray pour coéquipier.

Non mais : un Incube ! Autrement dit, tout ce qu’elle déteste.

Entre eux les étincelles fusent – au sens littéral ! – et quand leur mission s’avère bien plus compliquée que ce qu’ils envisageaient, on frôle le carnage !

Guerre ou paix ? Tout repose sur ce duo détonant.

Where we ended by Nora Flite

Laiken has finally heard the dark rumors about me.
Everyone who hears runs away. But she can’t.
She’s trapped here, in my house—with me.
Each minute we’re together I’m driven to swallow her up. To see if the electricity that moves between us will grow or vanish. I thought we were falling in love. Now, I’m sure that she hates my very existence.
But when she glares at me… I see a flicker of desire in her blue eyes. The way she fixates on my mouth reminds me of how filthy we’ve been.
How filthy we could be.
My father has warned me to stay away from her. He knows she’s become my weakness. All my life, I just wanted to be the perfect soldier for him. To do everything he asked so he’d be proud.
I thought I could.
Laiken is doing her best to prove me wrong.

 

On Deck
De sombres étoiles de Amy A Bartol

Kyon Ensin dispose enfin de celle qu’il convoite depuis toujours : la prêtresse Kricket Hollowell capable de prédire le futur. Avec elle, son pouvoir est inégalable et il peut régner en Maître sur Éthar. Mais Kricket est fermement décidée à mener sa vie comme elle l’entend, aux côtés de Trey Allairis, son grand amour, et refuse de porter la couronne que veut lui imposer Kyon.

Au cœur de la guerre pour la domination d’Éthar et face au terrible clan Alameeda, qui nourrit les plus sinistres projets à son égard, Kricket ne peut se fier à personne. Pas même à Astrid, sa propre sœur.

Dans ce chaos, alors que la prophétie annoncée par sa mère semble sur le point de s’accomplir, Kricket – armée de la seule certitude qu’elle ne peut compter que sur elle-même – va devoir plonger dans un monde tourmenté pour tenter de changer son destin.

 

The Swedish Prince by Karina Halle

**A standalone romance inspired by the classic film, Roman Holiday.**

I never believed in fairy-tales.

Never held out for Prince Charming.

Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep.

At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.

But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.

Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.

Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.

I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.

When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?

Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?

NOTE:
– The Swedish Prince will be available on iBooks/Nook/Kobo on March 19th and 20th ONLY
– The Swedish Prince will have a live release on Amazon KU on March 22nd

Kiss Collector by Wendy Higgins

When seventeen-year-old Zae Monroe gets cheated on by the only guy she’s ever loved, then watches her parents’ marriage crumble, she decides to forget about relationships and turn the tables on the boys of the world. It’s time to take what she wants, and what she wants are kisses. Athletes, musicians, poets, and bad boys—their lips are all on her agenda, and it’s time to collect.

Zae proposes a contest with her friends to see who can kiss the most boys during spring break. But what starts as a harmless competition leads to a downward spiral she can’t seem to break free of. As family, academic, friend, and guy drama come to a head, Zae is forced to face the reasons behind her boy angst, and starts to wonder if she was wrong about the male race…or at least some of them.

Fallen Empire by K.N Lee

They say the Age of Dragons ended after the War on Magic, but hiding in the forgotten lands remains one clan.
While Kylan hunts firedrakes by day, he prepares for a journey across the Sea of Dreams where mermaids thrive and the key to his people’s survival is prophecized to be hidden.

Amalia, a Mage, escaped The Brotherhood, a sect of monks who seek the descendants of the gods once. Now, unable to return to neutral territory where magic-users are safe, she finds herself fighting for survival amongst men who can turn into wolves, firedrakes, and a relentless monk who believes she can restore balance to the entire world.

For Amalia, the gods are not just a memory. They are her ancestors, and before she can learn to control her newfound gift, she will face the keeper of a forgotten empire.

A dragon.

In this sprawling epic fantasy novel with shifting wolf hybrids, dragons, and mermaids, Amalia’s first battle is for more than her life. It’s for the souls of every being born with magic. Join New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee on an adventure perfect for fans of Vikings and Game of Thrones.
