REVIEW: Lightborne (The Bexley Chronicles, #1) by Brindi Quinn


33629436
He cups me close to his face, near his mouth, so that his lips are grazing the reaches of my light. “You’re warm, B.” He grins. “Like a small fluttering bird.” 
Then, his grin grows into something edging on salacious, and I have one hasty, breathless thought: 

. . . He’s going to kiss me? 

Nope. 
At the last moment, he opens his mouth and shoves me inside. 
If I’m not mistaken, I’ve just been swallowed. 

. . . . . . . . . . 
Bexley Lightborne is not your average run-of-the-mill mortal. She’s a realm-hopping, light-wielding badass . . . with just a touch of amnesia. 

As shadows from the dark realm invade the world of light, Bexley enlists the help of a foul-mouthed, baby-faced newcomer holding magickal potential . . . who also happens to be the worst human boy Bexley has ever met. 

Tethered together, two unlikely heroes will discover the truth of their forgotten bloodline and fight to reclaim what’s been lost, whether they want to or not. 

Four colors collide in a war of light. 
And all of this magic stuff? Pretty badass.

*Thanks to the Author for a physical review copy in exchange for an honest review*

I had my eye on Brindi Quinn for a long time but always something came up and I was just unable to read the book. But now that I've finally read it, I can't keep myself from reading other books by Brindi.
                           
                           * This is me after reading almost every book!*

Oh, and did you look at that cover? It's so freaking pretty and I would have read the book only because of the cover but that was not the case. So why did I actually decided to give this book a shot?

He cups me close to his face, near his mouth, so that his lips are grazing the reaches of my light. “You’re warm, B.” He grins. “Like a small fluttering bird.”

Then, his grin grows into something edging on salacious, and I have one hasty, breathless thought:

. . . He’s going to kiss me?

Nope. At the last moment, he opens his mouth and shoves me inside.
If I’m not mistaken, I’ve just been swallowed.

Because of this excerpt!! Don't you get all those intriguing feels? After I read the blurb, specifically these lines, my inner reading goddess kept me bugging to go on and pick up this book and freaking read it now!! But I was like, Ammie *face set in a straight line* focus on your damn exams or you'll fail and then you'll be homeless because your parents will kick their useless reading goddess out of their house!

Okay, no more bickering let's just get to the plot!

The story revolves around Bexley, a light Bourne. She is a warrior with a task to defend the modern world from nocturne that is the darkling realm. So Bexley is a fierce badass, full of sarcasm and I loved her for that.

Oh, and she is a mild amnesic. Yes, you heard it right, she suffers from mild amnesia. Intrigued now? So what are you waiting for? Go and read the book *duh*. 

Bexley, a turquoise Lightborne thinks it is her sworn duty to protect the Mortals from the Darklings, to activate any dormant Lightbourne and to search for a hidden weapon. She also does not have full access to her memories which frustrates her. She meets Kinley and then she finds that her memories of him are locked deep inside.

So all in all this book is full of suspense and I am not going to reveal any further because it will ruin everything for you. So just take my word and start reading this book. Oh and the romance part was far better than I expected but I am still not going to reveal anything, you will have to read and find out yourself. Do some work guys!!

The world Brindi constructed was just amazing, so different from regular dystopian/fantasy. It was what you call something unique. The character development? Amazing again. I loved Bexley's sassiness. 

The romance part? Unexpected and utterly amazing again. * I think I can't find anything else than amazing to define this book!* 

The suspense part? Don't even ask me, I can't handle all these rollercoaster feelings *aah* give me the next book already Brindi or I am going to turn mad!!

Go go go and read this! If you are still reading the recommendation section after reading the entire review, you are not listening to me!! READ THIS BOOK, PERIOD!

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.  Including her. 
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 
Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
