Fifty Shades YA Boys: Silver by Talia Vance

July 25th, 2012 Kristie Posted in Fifty Shades YA Boys 24 Comments »

Fifty Shades of YA Boys continues today with Blake Williams from Silver by Talia Vance. Blake sounds like a tough, bad boy with a heart of gold. I want to read more about him already, unfortunately I will have to wait. Silver will be released on September 4, 2012.

Thanks to the wonderful people at Flux, one lucky commentor will receive a copy of Silver!

About Talia:

Talia Vance is a practicing litigation attorney living in Northern California with her real life love interest, two-point-five kids, and a needy Saint Bernard named Huckleberry. Talia has been writing since she could talk, making up stories for every doll, stuffed animal and action figure she could get her hands on. She grew up hoping to write the great American novel, but her life ran more along the lines of tortured romance and fast paced thrillers, so that’s what she writes.

I guess I’m supposed to spill some secrets or something.  But here’s the thing –  I never know how much I should reveal.  It’s not like anyone really knows how to deal with a bandia.  It’s been a few generations since any of my Circle has come across one.  So yeah, there’s no handbook.

I’m pretty sure that Rush would want me to keep my mouth shut.  It sucks because I want to help Brianna understand what she is.  I know I shouldn’t care whether or not she understands her own nature.  Hell, the less she knows the better.  Thing is, I can’t stop thinking about her.  I want her to understand this.  I want her to understand me.  Yeah, I know, it’s just this sick, twisted soul bond working its juju on me.  I’m sure it’s exactly what she wants, me so distracted by this swirl of emotions that I won’t be able to do what I have to do.

I can’t let her black magic suck me in.  Too much is at stake.  Only one of us will survive this, and I have to make sure that it’s me.

Fill in the Blank:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM:  Falling in love. I’ve been doing a pretty good job at keeping it to myself.  Hell, I’m doing a fantastic job at keeping if from myself.  I can’t afford to indulge in fairy tales.  There are no happy endings here.  I can’t let myself forget it.

I WISH I COULD STOP:  Thinking about ways to kiss her.  I should be thinking about ways to kill her.  But then I remember that little jolt of heat when our lips touched, and how she melted in my hands… Damn it, there I go again.

I’M A SUCKER FOR:  Hot chocolate with those little marshmallows.  Please don’t let this get out.  Jonah will never let it rest.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS:  Sitting in Magic Beans with Joe talking about nothing and everything.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME:  Teaching a bandia how to fight.  It goes against everything I’ve been raised to believe.  But I can’t just let them kill her.  Not now.  If anyone is going to do it, it will have to be me.

I’D REALLY RATHER:  Make my own decisions.  I’m sick of the Circle dictating my life.  I should be able to decide who I date.  I should be able to decide what I fight for.  I should be able to decide who I fight against.  Who I kill.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS:   Put on a shirt and go for a run.

KILL / FRAK / MARRY:

1. Jennifer Lopez – Marry. Yeah, she’s a little old for me, but she still looks amazing.  I’m betting that her DNA will reveal that she is a carrier of the Killian gene.  I mean, a person cannot look that good for that long without a genetic link to the gods.

2. Adrianna Lima –  Kill.  Hello?  Have you seen this girl?  She’s got to be a bandia.

3. Miley Cyrus – Frak.   What? I bet she’s an animal underneath that cute and innocent exterior.

About this Book:

An Irish heritage, Celtic myth, and deadly beauty

In eighth grade, Brianna did something so dreadful she was suspended and homeschooled. No one could explain what happened that night . . . except Brianna’s Irish grandmother, who gave her a silver charm bracelet and told her to wear it until she turned seventeen. Ever since she slipped it on, Brianna has felt like she’s invisible. People stare right past her as if she doesn’t exist. And that includes Blake Williams, the one boy she can’t resist.

But everything changes in one frozen, silver moment when Blake sees her–and recognizes what she’s been hiding. Brianna is descended from Danu, the legendary Bandia of Celtic myth. Yet before she can fully understand who or what she is, Brianna accidentally binds her soul to Blake–whose tribe has spent the last thousand years hunting Danu’s descendants to protect humanity.

Fifty Shades YA Boys: Wrecked by Anna Davies

July 24th, 2012 Kristie Posted in Fifty Shades YA Boys 24 Comments »

Fifty Shades of YA Boys continues today with Christian from Wrecked by Anna Davies. He is a “betwixtman” which is a mermaid-like creature, except with legs. Christian sounds like he just wants to fit in. I imagine he is a wee bit shy too. Want to know what we thought of Wrecked? Stay tuned for Emmy’s review.

Thanks to Simon & Schuster we will be giving away 3 copies of Wrecked at the end of this post!

About Anna:

Anna Davies is a writer currently working at Cosmopolitan Magazine. She lives in Brooklyn, New York. Wrecked is her first novel.

You can visit Anna around the web here: Website | Blog

When people hear the word mermaid, they think of a gorgeous woman with long, flowing, hair sea-salt soaked into curls. Seashells covering curves. And a voice that no mortal could resist.

We have those Down Below. But take away the mystery, the mythology, the could-they-be-real fantasy and all you’ve got are sisters, neighbors, schoolmates. They aren’t what I want.

I’m a Betwixtmen. Most mortals haven’t heard of my race. We look human, yet can breathe below the surface. Back in the time before now, we were free to roam the earth and the water, unbound by the separation of land and sea. And then, our ruler, Sephie decreed that we would have to live separately. The mermaids and their siren songs disappeared, leaving only legends. And the rule, decreed generations ago, condemned me to a lifetime of yearning.

Up Above is forbidden to touch, but not to look. And that’s what I do—or at least, that’s what I did. I watch humans on the beach, laughing, interacting. While the water binds me, it seems to free them. As soon as their feet touch the damp sand at the ocean border they smile, laugh, allow their fingers to interlock with another. They become the closest version of themselves. I feel privileged to watch.

And of course, I see the human girls the way I imagine sailors long ago saw the mermaids as they splashed and played in the water. While their breath may have caught when they saw a glimpse of fin shimmering above the waves, it is the human girl’s cut-off shorts and jellybean bright toenails that ignite a longing at the core of my being.

I’d always been able to ignore that longing.

Until I met Miranda.

_______________________________________

Fill in the Blanks:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: Constantly having a serious identity crisis from not really being a merman or being a human. Having to deal with being mythological/not real on land and not quite fitting in at sea. And not really being down with constantly being below the surface of the water, when everything interesting seems to happen Up Above. Also, that I’m kind of think-y. What I’ve realized is on land, people totally stereotype other people based on how they look. Because I tend to be shirtless, wearing shorts on the beach, people assume I’m a dumb jock. Nope, just swimming because it’s how I have to survive.

I WISH I COULD STOP: Falling in love with humans. Wanting what I can’t have. And continual obsessing over philosophy and Fate makes me clearly not the happiest guy to hang out with—but I can’t help it, and love when I find someone just as intense as I am.

I’M A SUCKER FOR: All night conversations that aren’t about who you are or what you do, but are way more about how you connect. Also, I love when girls wear tiny pendant necklaces that land right at the hollow in between their collarbones. It’s delicate, it’s pretty, and when one of those washes up on the beach, I can’t help but take it and try to figure out who its’ owner is, based on the grooves, the scratches, or even the strands of hair caught in the clasp. Yes, I’m aware it makes me a total creepster, but when the rules of where I live tell me I can’t interact with humans, having that pockmarked, ocean-stained jewelry is the only way I can feel somewhat connected to the world I want to join.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: Creepster alert part two: I love watching humans on the beach. In my world, everything is formal—there’s no time for just laughing or talking or being. So when I see a group getting together around a fire, talking into the night, I think two things: First, how are they allowed to do that, and second, don’t they realize how lucky they are? Sometimes, when I see a girl who goes off to cry or yell at her boyfriend on her phone or just hangs back from the group I want to reach out to her and let her know how much she has going for her. Same with the guys. It’s weird—I look so much like them, but I don’t understand their slang, their conversations, the easy way they insult each other then laugh it off. In my world, that would start a war. And I like being by myself, allowing my thoughts to drift like the waves as they reach the shore. Which I know sounds incredibly lame, but when your entire view of English is constructed based on waterlogged books that fall to the ocean floor, that’s got to be excused. Apparently, quoting Shakespeare is admired on land and trust me, I’ve got that on lock.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: Swim. Seriously, humans think Michael Phelps is fast. He’s not.

I’D REALLY RATHER: Play football, drive fast cars … go to college, be a philosophy professor, and stop feeling like a fish on the wrong side of an aquarium tank.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Watch the sun rise. It makes me feel tethered to the world in a way I wouldn’t if I spent my entire life under water. Which makes me sound super-depressed so I’ll also say … push ups. What? You think betwixtmen (or mermen, as most people—incorrectly—say) have amazing bodies without any work?

KILL / FRAK / MARRY:

1. Eva Longoria – Frak. Mainly by process of elimination!

2. Anna Paquin – Marry. Mermen and fairies go way back … plus, she’s pretty.

3. Mariah Carey – Kill. Seriously, she’s all about butterflies. If she were about dolphins or oysters or even freakin’ eels, it’d be a different story.

About this Book

Secrets of the sea have never been sexier than this.

Ever since the death of her parents, Miranda has lived on Whym Island, taking comfort in the local folklore, which claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and in its surrounding waters. Sometimes it’s just easier to believe things are out of your control.

But then a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, and Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy who haunts her dreams. Consumed by guilt from the accident, she finds refuge in late-night swims—and meets Christian, a boy who seems eerily familiar, but who is full of mystery: He won’t tell her where he is from, or why they can only meet at the beach. But Miranda falls for him anyway…and discovers that Christian’s secrets, though meant to protect her, may bring her nothing but harm.

Seductive and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.

THE PERKS OF BEING A VAMPIRE

…or, things I might actually miss when I manage to find a cure for vampirism and rid myself of this curse.

1) Never having to worry about having a bad hair day.  My hair—as well as everything else about myself—is always exactly the same.  Every.  Single.  Day.

2) Knowing that I’ve personally rid the streets of some pretty awful predators—of the human kind.  You know, murderers, rapists.  An animal abuser here and there.

3) The indescribable rush—of power and pleasure—when my fangs find their target.

4) The sensation of flying I experience when moving faster than the human eye can perceive.  It’s easy to see where the “bat” myth came from where vampires are concerned.

5) That mental telepathy “channel” that Violet and I share.  It’s incredibly intimate to be able to speak directly into the mind of the person you love.

6) Lastly, being able to hear Violet’s heart race and her blood rush through her veins whenever we’re together.  Because frankly, it’s pretty hot to know just how much I turn her on.  Yeah, that’s what I’m going to miss the most.  Definitely.

Fill in the Blank:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: a chronic worrier.  It’s a good thing lack of sleep won’t kill me, because I often can’t sleep, not with all the conflicting thoughts going through my head.  Mostly to do with Violet, of course.  It’s certainly gotten worse since I met her, no doubt about that.

I WISH I COULD STOP: time.

I’M A SUCKER FOR: girls who can kick ass.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: lying down in the chapel’s loft with the girl I love, staring up at a full moon.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: take out a would-be murderer in a matter of seconds.

I’D REALLY RATHER: be mortal.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: picture Violet’s face.

KILL / FRAK / MARRY:

1. Lindsay Lohan – Easy one—kill.  Do I really need to list the reasons why?

2. Katie Holmes – Hmm, frak.  I guess.  She’s pretty enough, but I certainly wouldn’t want to keep her around long term.  You have to wonder about someone who’s willing to marry Tom Cruise, don’t you?

3. Heidi Klum – Marry.  She’s hot, smart, and funny.  ‘Nuff said.

About this Book:

Seventeen-year-old Violet McKenna is back for her senior year at Winterhaven, and thrilled to be with Aidan after a long summer apart. But when a violent and disturbing vision begins to haunt her, Violet suddenly feels unsure of everything: who to trust, if she is in danger, and—worst of all—whether she and Aidan are really meant to be together.

My best friend, Delane, jokes that I’m brooding and intense. It just takes time for me to trust people. My life is complicated and there’s much I can’t talk about. My world is at war, and our rebellion depends on secrecy to succeed. So, when I’m quiet, I’m quiet for a reason. But I do have a light side. Not many people know this, but I once lost a bet, and as a result, have a tattoo of a poppy somewhere on my body. I’m not going to tell you where.

As a fighter, there’s no way of knowing when I might encounter danger on the road, so I have to stay in shape. The tattoo on my back protects me from demons, but there are other enemies in my world, and I have to be ready to fight or die. I wouldn’t have things any other way. I have chosen this life. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t give up to protect my world.

It’s hard for me to find a girl, because I spend so much time on the road, and there are few who could accept my way of life. Delane says that girls want to tame me, but I have no interest in those kinds of games. So, though there have been girls in my past, I keep my distance. It’s safer that way. Less complicated. If I could find a girl who accepted me for who I am–and not who she wants me to be–I would give her everything. I have yet to meet her…

Fill in the Blank:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: In Crownsville as part of our efforts to stop the war.

I WISH I COULD STOP: The Suzerain’s war against the Other Side. I’ll do everything I can to achieve that.

I’M A SUCKER FOR: An underdog. Nothing is so hopeless that it can’t be overcome. Never give up.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: Being with my closest friends in a place where nobody knows me and where I can be myself.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: Mixing with the students at Crownsville High. It’s a far cry from my life back home.

I’D REALLY RATHER: Be climbing in the mountains on a clear, crisp day with no one around me for miles.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Continue to fight. Every day. Until the war is over.

About this Book:

Mysterious lights have flickered above Crownsville for as long as Mia can remember. And as far as she’s concerned, that’s about the only interesting thing to happen in her small town.

That is, until Sol arrives. Mia’s not one to fall for just any guy, but she can’t get Sol–or the brilliant tattoo on his back–out of her mind.

Then Mia’s brother goes missing, and Mia’s convinced that Sol knows more than he’s sharing. But getting closer to Sol means reevaluating everything Mia once believed to be true. Because Sol’s not who Mia thought he was–and neither is she.

Fifty Shades YA Boys: Blood Fever by Veronica Wolff

July 21st, 2012 Kristie Posted in Fifty Shades YA Boys 28 Comments »

Fifty Shades of YA Boys continues today with one very *HOT* Scottish vampire. I think I might absolutely swoon if I met Carden McCloud. I’m a sucker for a Scottish accent. Carden is currently the leading bad boy of The Watchers series by Veronica Wolff. The third book in the series, Blood Fever, will be released on August 7th.

Thanks to Penguin, one lucky person will have a chance to win a copy of Blood Fever at the end of the post!

About Veronica:

Veronica Wolff is an award-winning, bestselling author with a soft spot for kilts, mountains, beaches, and vampires. Not necessarily at the same time. She lived everywhere from Texas, to Hawaii, to India, before finally settling in Northern California, where she lives with her husband, two kids, one insane rescue dog, one angelic rescue dog, the gentlest cat ever, and a snake whose days are numbered.

You can visit Veronica around the web here: Website | Twitter | Facebook

My name’s Carden McCloud. These women would have me write about my complex nature, but to my mind, I’m not so very complicated, aye?

Granted, I hit a bit of a snag when I turned nineteen and was made Vampire, but once I learned to manage the blood lust, my needs became simple:

1. I must feed my various hungers, though my wee Annelise helps with that, and it’s not your business anyhow.
2. To live nobly. Vampire I might be, but I’m no beast. I yet bear the heart of a man in my chest.
3. To guard my freedom. I mock rules and those who’d try to control me.
4. To destroy those who’d use my unique talents for ill. Annelise doesn’t know it yet, but I’ve plans to beat these ancients at their own game.

As I said, uncomplicated, right?

Just remember, don’t be fooled by my devil-may-care smile. I’m more than just a mass of brawny, Scottish good looks. I may seem irreverent—indeed, I laugh in the face of danger—but my easy humor hides a deep sadness I reveal to no one.

But I’ve said too much. And there are many secrets yet to tell…

Fill in the Blank:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: Serious. Don’t be fooled by my easy smile. Cross me or mine, and I’ll kill you in a heartbeat.

I WISH I COULD STOP: Thinking about my woman, but a blood bond tends to preoccupy a man.

I’M A SUCKER FOR: A good fight. Men don’t fight like they used to. These days, too many hide behind words or lackeys. There was a day when a man stood up for his own self. Protected his own honor. And besides, blades and fists are so much more satisfying.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: A good fight. Were you not listening? See above.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: With my woman. I’m gentle and kind. And I can cook, too.

I’D REALLY RATHER: Be back home again, truly home, among the land and people lost to me.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Does it matter? I don’t sleep anyway. But if you truly need an answer, the first thing I do as the sun rises is mourn the darkness. And then I think of my woman.

KILL / FRAK / MARRY:

1. Katy Perry – Marry. She’s strong and independent, and with the proper training, might even be able to kick ass as brilliantly as my own Annelise.

2. Sarah Michelle Geller – Are you daft? Kill. The woman played a vampire hunter on the telly.

3. Maggie Grace – Frak. Those who know me have probably guessed by now, I’ve a soft spot for a woman with hair the color of sunlight.

About this Book:

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME—EVEN IF HOME IS WHERE THE DEAD LIVE…

It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees have descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.

Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.

But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself…
