Dragon in the Blood (Vale of Stars #2) by Juliette Cross

Hello Sunnies!
I have missed my paranormal romance books, so this was a fabulous change of pace. Two days of bliss! 
Waking the Dragon & Dragon in the Blood by Juliette Cross were fabulous reads and I cannot recommend it enough. There is action, there is romance, there are hot dragon-hybrid males....What is not to love? 😍

-Dragon in the Blood - 5 Stars


WOW! I LOVED this one!
It has all the amazing sexy tension and drama you would hope from a pnr.
It focuses on Kol's sister, Valla. We meet her briefly in Waking the Dragon. She is an assassin for the Order of the Morgan Guard and Kol sends her to a mission with a Morgan she despises.
Valla is independent to the max. She was brought up by her brothers who are both very alpha and the last thing she needs or wants is another dominating man in her life.
Conn is hilarious. Or at least the way he provokes Valla is. I loved reading their interactions.
He doesn't know at first how to feel about the mission, he loves teasing Valla but that is because she stirs feelings in him and he knows those feelings are not reciprocated.
The sexual tension between them is off the charts and the romance was written to perfection!

The background story that ties the books together continues here and it is a much more pleasurable read than it was on the first book (that is not a criticism though, first books on series often need that background building so that the series can carry on). There are two evils at work now though, the Blood King who has not yet been captured, and a poison priestess. The Blood King thinks she is working with him, but she has evil plans of her own.

I cannot say enough times how much I loved this one! It had everything a great romance book needs and I cannot wait for the next book.
Because yah... one more thing: the ending although a hea for Valla and Conn has one fabulous and exciting cliffhanger too.

“Being alone does not make you stronger, Valla. Or more independent. It just means you’re alone.” 

"I didn't realize I had such a profound effect on you, or that I was on your mind- all the time" (Conn being his sarcastic self)

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
