Review ~ Reaver by Larissa Ione

"We’re the most fucked-up, star-crossed lovers in history.
So let’s not play nice."


Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before . . . to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.


Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel's blood . . .

Read an Excerpt

After the big disappointment what Rogue Rider was for me, I was expecting a huge comeback with Reaver. He had that kind of storyline that could easily live up - with one book - to the overall story of the series. Up to this point Lethal Rider was my absolute favorite because of the characters, even though Immortal Rider was the best when it comes to twists and adventure. Reaver HAS the whole package. 

I love Harvester because she's sassy, smart, kick-ass but also vulnerable, but still can be a bitch and a hero at the same time. I love these kind of characters who are not just plain white or black, good or evil. Yes I hated her in the first two books, like everyone else did, but  she was also entertaining so I kinda liked her before, but boy. I just simply adore her now.

As for Reaver... he's brilliant. It's amazing how loosing his memory and wings changed him. That was probably the best thing that could have happened to him. The old Reaver, the one who slept with Lillith was a jerk. But this new one, he's a true hero. He's selfish, kind and a total badass! And noone can resist his sarcastic humor.

So why is this book so awesome? First, because It has kind of a cat-mouse game vibe to it. The dynamics between Reaver and Harvester is fascinating. The energy bouncing around like a pin ball when these two converse, the way they challenge and still support each other is truly exceptional. Second, it's eventful. There's always something happening. For half of the book we're in Hell watching Harvester and Reaver fight their way to out of there. Plus thanks to the POV changes, sometimes we get a peek into others' heads, such as Satan or Revenant (the new evil watcher), or the Angels (those sons of bitches!). But the journey doesn't end when our two lovebirds are out of Satan's territory. Hell no. There are a bunch of complications and betrayals they have to face with before they can get their happy ending. If they ever get it. And the third reason.... the twists!! Holy missing relatives! They blew my expectations out of the water!

There are so many emotions (love, hate, blind rage, sympathy, lust, surprise, excitement, etc) in this book and it brings out so many of the reader's it's unbelievable. 
Larissa delivered on all accounts…

Can't wait for Azagoth and more Revenant - I hate when authors make me love character I hated before, and then make me wait, ugh!!

Favorite character(s): Reaver, Harvester, Revenant, Sem brothers, Tavin (hope he gets a book too!!)
Favorite scene(s): Oh, this is HARD! My favorite scene is sad as hell, but beautifully wrote, without being too spoilery, it's when Harvester gets an upgrade.
Favorite quote(s):

“Fine,” he said. “You’re right. We’re not normal. We’re the most fucked-up, star-crossed lovers in history. So let’s not play nice.”
"She, more than any angel in history, had shaped the future of all the realms.
Harvester was a fallen angel. And a fallen hero."
Wraith beamed. “So,” he said, “you really think having archangels string you up by your halo is worth saving this Harvester chick?”
(...)“She saved the world.”
Wraith shrugged. “So did I, but I don’t see you offering up your holy ass to save me.”
“Are you suffering unspeakable horrors at the hands of Satan?”
“No,” Wraith said, “but sometimes I have to eat hospital cafeteria food.”
Reaver sighed. Wraith was a hundred-year-old child.

COVER REVEAL: Rockin the Heart by Gracen Miller

Welcome, you all amazing people who joined us for the cover reveal for Gracen Miller's NEW NA Contemporary novel ROCKIN THE HEART!!!

I LOVE Gracen's books, I'm a big fan of her Road To Hell series, so I can fairly say that if you're into this genre, don't overthink it. YOU MUST PUT THIS ON YOUR TO-READ LIST!! 

Okay.. enough talk, let's see that cover!! (I'm seriously excited, since I had something to do with it ^^ Hope you all love it!)

ROCKIN the HEART by Gracen Miller

genre: NA Contemporary
Cover Design: Andrea Kozári
Expected release date: January 23

If music nourishes the soul…

Loved by millions, but shunned by blood, Heath “Fang” Fangor has led his band, Hot Wired, to the top while others have fallen by the wayside. He devoted his life to music, and from that devotion harvested a new family—his band mates and fans.

A man can desire nothing else…or can he?

Living in the shadow of her brother’s fame sucks! Sam Collins is desperate to have what she wants—a simple and uncomplicated life. She’s no stranger to scandals and how they work. Now that she’s inadvertently dragged Fang into the center of her latest gossip, could the scandal she created in her quest for freedom have gone too far?

Amid stardom the heart stages a new melody…

Fang has more fame and fortune than he will ever need, but none of that matters if he can’t have the woman of his dreams. Years have been wasted waiting for the right moment to approach the woman his heart desires above all others. There’s just one major problem...she’s his best friend’s sister. To have her, he will have to risk it all.

That might be responsible for Rockin the Heart!

Gracen is a hopeless daydreamer masquerading as a “normal” person in southern society. When not writing, she’s a full-time basketball/football/guitar mom for her two sons and a devoted wife to her real-life hero-husband. She’s addicted to writing, paranormal romance novels, movies, Alabama football and coffee…addictions are not necessarily in order of priority. She is convinced coffee is nectar from the gods and blending coffee and writing together generates the perfect creative merger.Many of her creative worlds are spawned from coffee highs.
