Around the world humans are hallucinating after sleepless nights.

In a sterile, underground institute the forecasters keep reporting the same events.

And in the backwoods of Texas, a sixteen-year-old girl is about to be caught up in a fierce, ethereal battle.

Meet Roya Stark. She drowns every night in her dreams, spends her hours reading classic literature to avoid her family’s ridicule, and is prone to premonitions—which are becoming more frequent. And now her dreams are filled with strangers offering to reveal what she has always wanted to know: Who is she? That’s the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out. But will Roya live to regret learning the truth?

My Review of Felix (5th Street, #5) 5 Stars out of 5

Felix  (5th Street, #5)Felix by Elizabeth Reyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So I know I said that Noah's story was my favorite but now I have a tie. Felix's story was so good to read. I cried, laughed, and loved the intensity of Felix's love for Ella. This book is different than any of the books she has ever written. It touches on a subject that not many people write about and shows how this disease affects everybody in the family. All the guys stick together as brothers and are there for Felix through one of the toughest times of his life. I love how Gio and Felix make up and helps Felix deal with a loss that no parent should have to go through. Ella was what Felix needed. His whole attitude changes for the best and he makes a lot of changes in his life for her. Felix stops the partying, drinking, doing drugs, sleeping around, and smoking all because he wanted to be the man that Ella deserved. I can't say too much about what they went through because I'm afraid I might give it away but I can say that they were each other's lifeline. Way to go Elizabeth!!! This is not your typical love story because it touches on some very serious issues. Don't expect hot love scenes because the book doesn't focus on that but do expect a love story that is very rare. Not many men do what Felix did for Ella. This is by far one of Elizabeth's greatest pieces of work.

Felix (5th Street, #5) by Elizabeth Reyes

Title: Felix (5th Street, #5)
Author: Elizabeth Reyes
Genre: NA | Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 13, 2014

They say the only good thing about hitting rock bottom is that it can't get any worse . . . or can it? 

World famous boxing champ, Felix Sanchez, had it all—the fame, the fortune, and all the women any man could ask for. When the hours of partying followed by hours spent in court and in rehab begin to outnumber the hours he spends training, losing his title comes as no surprise to everyone. The world assumes he deserved to lose it.

Only those closest to Felix know the real truth behind his sudden downward spiral. And if Felix has his way, no one else ever will. With an uncertain future ahead of him, he heads back to his roots—5th Street—the gym that started it all for him. It's where he meets the humble but mighty little Ms. Ella.

The only times Felix had ever decided to forgo the usual meaningless fling and try a real relationship he was burned badly. Now the adorable but tenacious self-defense instructor has him considering this love thing one more time.

Then just when he begins to worry that his past is letting his possessive and jaded heart get the best of him, he's blindsided in the most brutal way—he's brought to his knees—to what could be the one low in his life he may never recover from.

My Review of Strange Addiction (The Twelve Olympians #4) by Sandrine Gasq-Dion 4.5 Stars out of 5

Strange Addiction (The Twelve Olympians, #4)Strange Addiction by Sandrine Gasq-Dion
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really love this series so much and the dynamic of friendships formed since the first book of A Marked Man. The Olympians is a spin-off series from Assassin/Shifter series and Sandrine has managed to work in a third series that will have characters from this series to make guest appearances. This is the Santorno Series and I really can't wait for more on this particular series. Sandrine is a very talented writer to be able to combine so many characters and keep it all in order. In Strange Addiction we finally get to meet Brock Holloway and Zack Duran. On the outside it looks like Brock has everything he wants and is happy but nobody knows how much he is suffering inside. He craves love and attention but it seems the guys that sleep with him are only attracted to him because of his looks. After they use him then that's it. He is so lonely and feels hopeless and takes extreme measures to take away his pain. I cried for him because nobody should feel like this and it broke my heart that he thought he was so alone. Zack is not as hard ass as he acts. He fights his feelings for Brock very hard but it's not his own feelings he has to deal with he constantly he also has to fight his inner wolverine shifter who is fighting him the entire time. Zack was more wolverine than human but he fought as hard as hell to take control of his wolverine side for Brock's sake. One night Zack's true feelings come out when he had to save Brock's life. This was the turning point for both of them. The love that grew between them became stronger every day. I only wish there was a little more background on Zack but that's just me. If I'm not mistaken Zack never had a chance to submit to Brock when they made love if you know what I mean. A little TMI I know but I was curious as to why he was not able to have his chance:) You will enjoy this book and love all the characters in there. Of course my beloved Nikolai makes an appearance and is funny as hell. Nikolai is my favorite character out of all the series. The things he says are so unfiltered which why I like him so much. Can't wait for the next book in either of the series that Sandrine has. She is a great writer and I look forward to her next book.

Strange Addiction (The 12 Olympians #4) by Sandrine Gasq-Dion

Brock Holloway has it all -- money, friends, a bitchin' car and a promising football career. At least, that's what people see. Inside, though, Brock is fighting for something he knows he can never have: Unconditional love. As the child of Aphrodite, he is worshipped, admired, wanted - but never loved.

Zack Duran is a wolverine shifter -- and not a nice guy. Zack's shifter side is always in control, often making him heartless and unfeeling. When Zack is assigned to guard Brock Holloway, his tactless wolverine tendencies become even more prevalent and Zack has to fight his shifter personality AND his genuine feelings for the beautiful football player.

A near tragedy shakes him to his core, and Zack can no longer fight the feelings he has for Brock. But giving in to his emotions may come at too high a price. A startling secret charges Brock with the nearly impossible task of taming Zack's beast. Is he up to the challenge? Can Zack give him what he needs? And with danger working overtime, can they finally be together as they were intended?

Best selling author, Sandrine (Sandy) was born in Inglewood, California. Raised by "Old School" French parents, she later moved to Tucson, AZ. It was there that writing became a hobby. Always told she had a great imagination, Sandy wrote short stories for her friends in High School. In college, she took more writing classes while working on her Criminal Justice degree, but it wasn't until a soap opera caught her eye that she got involved in male on male romances. On the advice of a friend, Sandy dipped her toes into the world of M/M Romance. Sandy takes the writing seriously and has had countless conversations with gay men as well as hours of research. She's been involved with the military in one way or another for over twenty years, and has a great deal of respect for our men in uniform. She's traveled the world, but has finally returned to Arizona.

There is now an Assassin/Shifter website!! Many thanks to the talented Jenn Watts for all her hard work!
