Review

Hot and Wild adventure of a paranormal who refuse to remain dead.

In Playing With Fire, Cynthia Eden 3rd book in the Phoenix Fire series. She brings to life a world where humans know that paranormal being exist and our Government wants to experiment and see how they tick. In other words..want to use them for their own wicked means. However, there is one being that refused to be any one’s lab rat.

Dante is the oldest of his kind, and he is out for some payback. When Cassie Armstrong the daughter of most immortal research has much to atone for. Her family has done nothing but torcher the paranormal beings. However, the paranormal world weren’t the only ones being torched at his hands…Cassie was as well. To bring peace to the paranormal world she needs help from one man, and that one man can or will be the downfall to Cassie and what passes for a normal life.

But before she can help those who suffered at her father’s and brother’s hands. She first must stop her enemy that is hot on her trail.

Playing With Fire was without a doubt one of the best Paranormal Romance I had the pleasure of reading. Fast-paced action and hot romance was the main key to making Playing With Fire a must read for any fans who enjoy reading about worlds outside of the normal.

Though I never read the other story in this series…do know that this reviewer will certainly correct that oversight.  I really loved Dante and how protective of Cassie he was. If any one needed love it was Cassie.

If you ever read this title leave a comment below on your thoughts. Mainly who was your favorite character? Why?

about

Score another point for the 5th installment in the Lazarus Rising series!!!
Lie Close to Me written by Cynthia Eden and published under the Hocus Pocus Publishing brand. The action along with the chemistry between Luna and Maddox was out of this world.
When the facility was under attack one soldier come up missing and the only person who could bring her back…Maddox Kane.
Maddox Kane had one mission to find Luna and bring her back. However, when he finds Luna it was to a sad heart that she doesn’t remember anything. But when danger comes calling in the form of others Super Soldiers. Maddox will have to show why his nickname is HUNTER.
Luna, a subject of the Lazarus project was not your normal member of the Lazarus team. She was totally different than all the others and there are those who are after her just for her unique ability. What makes Luna different from the others is that when she dies and come back, she doesn’t remember anything also her ability to heal the mind and the body.

I fell in love with Luna and Maddox as a couple. They had to undergo so many struggles to be together. The only downside to this story was I wish that it was longer to include more of Luna and Maddox past. Other than what I consider a downside the plot was fantastic from beginning to end. The best story out of the Lazarus series so far.

synopsis3-300x99

He’s Lazarus, and so is she. What happens when their worlds collide?

He’s hunting her. Maddox Kane has one goal—track Luna Ashton. He’s the best hunter on his team, finely honed and designed by Uncle Sam to be an unstoppable killing machine. He’s a super solider—faster, stronger, and deadlier than anyone else. Maddox keeps his emotions under careful lock and key because he can’t afford to feel. Feeling is too dangerous, and the attraction Maddox feels for Luna is positively lethal.
Luna has no memory of being in the labs with Maddox. She doesn’t remember the connection they shared when they were trapped in hell. She doesn’t remember escaping the facility. She doesn’t remember him. So when Maddox hunts her down, she’s terrified of him…and of the strange psychic and sensual connection they seem to share. Surely she shouldn’t want him so much?

Luna is different from the other Lazarus subjects, and Maddox isn’t the only one hunting her. She’s a dangerous threat to Project Lazarus, and Luna isn’t going to be allowed to just slip away from the U.S. government…or from the other super soldiers who are also desperate to find her. Every Lazarus subject has incredible psychic gifts. Some Lazarus subjects can make people see their worst fears, some can control minds…but Luna’s gift—she can show people their memories. Luna has the ability to restore memories to all of the other Lazarus subjects, yet she can’t see her own past.

And if you can’t see your past…then you never know what danger is coming, what killer is standing right next to you, touching you, lying to you…not until it is too late.

RUN TO ME has everything a reader comes to expect in a romantic suspense

If you’re looking for strong characters and beyond amazing storytelling than Run To Me, would be that story. Run To Me, book #4 in the Lazarus Risings series, written by Cynthia Eden and published under the Hocus Pocus Publishing. Was one dynamic story about atonement and worth.

Jennings “Jay” Maverick has a lot to atone for. His backing of a project called the Lazarus project has come back to haunt him in spades. When the subjects of the Lazarus project escaped and some of them found their way onto his doorstep. Jay finally realized that it’s not truly safe to try to play GOD. Especially when he finds himself falling for one of those subjects.

Willow is a mystery even to those who are just like her. She has all the same strength, but she was more formidable than all the others. With her strange ability to make the people she touches, see their own fears, she is one woman that you wouldn’t want to stalk you in a dark alley.

With no memories of who she is and why someone would use her as a test subject. With the assistance of Jay Maverick, those secrets are finally discovered.  But they soon learn that not staying in the shadows has done more harm than good.

I really came to love Jay and Willow ever since they were introduced as secondary characters. And with this story, I came to love them even more. Especially, Jay. We finally learn the real reason why he funded the Lazarus project and that it wasn’t nefarious at all. Secrets were exposed, about a character that even I didn’t see coming, but the discover fit the narrative of what was being told and it wasn’t just added to push the story along.  Run To Me didn’t have flaws that I could pick up. The story had a quick pace. The sparks between Jay and Willow was felt right from the beginning. I thought that Willow character complemented Jay’s characters beautifully.

Will I recommend this title: Most definitely! Run To Me will have you on the edge of your seat. I know it did me. I can’t wait to read LIE CLOSE TO ME book #5.

synopsis3-300x99

He’s used to getting what he wants…

Jennings “Jay” Maverick is a tech billionaire. He has the world at his feet, and he thinks he can buy anything…but he can’t buy her. One look at the mysterious Willow, and Jay knows that he is a goner. He wants to give her anything and everything she desires, but he’s the man responsible for the pain in Willow’s life, and getting close to her—well, that’s not going to be easy.

Her life is a nightmare that she can’t escape.

Willow woke up in one of the “Lazarus” research facilities. She now has increased strength, incredible speed, and some scary psychic bonuses. Because of the danger associated with her new gifts, she’s afraid to touch anyone. One touch from her, and a man’s darkest fears will seemingly turn into reality. But Jay isn’t afraid of her touch. Instead, he seems to…crave it. To crave her.

She can’t trust him, and he won’t let her go.

Willow knows that Jay has been involved with Lazarus in the past, but he swears he only wants to help her. She never expects the white-hot desire that burns between them, a desire that grows more with every moment that passes. Thrust together as allies, Willow finds herself wanting to put her faith in Jay, wanting to find someone she can rely on, but Jay may still be keeping secrets from her. Secrets that could get them both killed.

When darkness and danger close in…RUN TO ME.

Review: Howl For It

Howl for It (The Pride Series) by [Laurenston, Shelly, Eden, Cynthia]

Title: Howl For It| Author: Shelly Larenston | Author: Cynthia Eden

 Series: Pride Series|Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Kensington | Publication Date: January 30, 2018 | Page Length: 337 pages


synopsis3-300x99

They hunger for your pleasure. They growl for your touch. And in these sizzling stories by New York Times bestselling author Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia Eden, these sexy wolf shapeshifters are lust at first bite. . .

Like A Wolf With A Bone Shelly Laurenston

Quiet little Darla Lewis couldn’t be happier when the most-feared member of the South’s rowdiest pack kidnaps her. A girl gets real tired of being overprotected by her own shifter family, and there’s nothing like an oh-so-big bad wolf to start a pack feud, unleash her instincts–and have her surrender however and whenever she wants. . .

Wed Or Dead Cynthia Eden

Gage Ryder knew his human bride had a wild side. But spending their honeymoon night on the run from hunters out to finish him and his pack is sure not the kind of fun he was looking forward to. No problem–Gage will do whatever it takes to lay bare Kayla’s secrets and find the truth. If he can keep from being captured by his own seductive game. . .

myreviewbanner

Howl For it comprises of two of my favorite authors, Cynthia Eden and Shelly Laurenston. You know when you decide to read a book written by either of this author that you are in store for hours of entertainment. I am happy to say that Howl For It never failed to entertain.

But a fair warning this book was originally released on August 28, 2012, by Bravo.

Book #1:  Like A Wolf With A Bone by Shelly Laurenston. If you read the Pride Series than you may know Dee-Ann. Well, this story is about her parents and how they met. Along with a great story, Shelly Laurenston put her brand of mixing romance with humor. This story was a pleasure and you got to visit with the Lewis and Smith.

Book #2: Wed or Dead was written by Cynthia Eden. This too is a shifter romance. But where Shelly Laurenston entertained us with humor and romance. Cynthia Eden provided us readers with intrigue. It started off with Kayla who only lot in life is to kill paranormal creatures that prey on humans. With her next target being Gage…An alpha of the Vegas pack. The only way she can take him out was by marrying him and then on their wedding night take him out. Or so she thought! She finds out that Gage has a say on the matter.

Both of these stories, though different brought the same reaction…of pure satisfaction of having the pleasure of reading two relaxing stories of humor and intrigue.

Howl for It a solid paranormal romance that all romance fans will enjoy.

Review: Stay With Me (Lazarus Rising Book 3)

Stay With Me (Lazarus Rising Book 3) by [Eden, Cynthia]

Title: Stay With Me | Series: Lazarus Rising #3 |Author: Cynthia Eden

Publication Date: December 12, 2017 | Publisher: Hocus Pocus Publishing, Inc.

Genre: Romantic Suspense, Paranormal Romance


Shelly Hampton intends to spend the holidays alone in her family’s mountain cabin, but when a snow-covered stranger appears on her door-step, her plans are shot straight to hell. The man before her seems oddly familiar, and he stirs a dark need within her.

It’s soon apparent that John Smith is far more than a normal man—he’s too strong, too fast, and she could swear that he seems to read her thoughts…and know her most secret desires.

But is John a man that she could love…or is he someone she should fear? Because even as the snow fall deepens, a deadly threat is closing in on her little cabin. And soon, Shelly will be trapped on the mountain with a dangerous man…a man who swears that he has come back from the dead, just to be with her.

myreviewbanner

Not distance nor time can keep you apart from the one you love. That is so true in this epic love story of Stay With Me, the third title in Cynthia Eden’s Lazarus Rising series, for which I am calling an absolutely brilliant love story.

Shelly Hampton has known nothing but lost every since she lost the last members of her small family…her father and brother. But with the holiday’s just around the corner, the loss is felt ten folds. Until a snow-covered stranger appears claiming that he found her. Even though Shelly is sure she never met this man before in her life…she can’t help wondering why this total stranger; twice now saved her life at the cause of his own.

Who is John Smith…really! He is far more than a normal man; he’s able to move faster than any person has the right to be and strong than a normal person. But, what separates John Smith from your normal human being, is his ability to die and come back to life. John Smith was one of the Lazarus test subjects, with his only memories is of a woman. Who is she, and is the memory of her is the only thing that he can remember of his life. Staying away from her isn’t an option when he comes to realize that she is the only one keeping him linked to reality.

Stay With Me, an intriguing love story that will captivate all readers.

Each novel in the Lazarus Rising series can be read as a stand-alone. However, to partake in this interesting adventure, I will highly recommend reading this series from the beginning.

Into the Night (Killer Instinct) Review

Into the Night (Killer Instinct) by [Eden, Cynthia]

Title: Into The Night | Author: Cynthia Eden

Series: Killer Instinct #3 | Pages: 384  | Genre: Romantic Suspense

Publisher: HQN Books  | Publication Date: December 26, 2017

Sold by: Harlequin Digital Sales Corp.

Two FBI agents are caught in a merciless vigilante’s crosshairs in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s electric Killer Instinct series

Sheltered in the shadows of the Smoky Mountains is the suspect who’s summoned FBI agent Macey Night’s fears to the surface. Every day that the “Profiler,” a vigilante serial killer, escapes justice is another day she’s reminded of what it is to be a ruthless predator’s prey. Capturing him is a craving deeper than anything she’s felt in a long time. But Agent Bowen Murphy, equal parts sexy and volatile, seems hell-bent on changing that. Working together—needing, living and breathing each other—they’re entwined to distraction.

Bowen’s used to operating on impulse: act, don’t feel. Now Macey and the controlled terror behind her beautiful eyes have him rethinking everything, including his rule to never get close to a colleague. He’s willing to fight for a future with Macey, but the consequences of love could be deadly.

I went into this book knowing only one thing. Cynthia Eden wrote this book. I have read most of everything she has written, but never one of her dark thrillers. I never got the chance to read the first two titles, but thanks to Harlequin, I had the pleasure to read Into The Night.

Into The Night drew you into the world where everything was not what it seemed and everyone was not what they appear to be. This story had so many twist and turns. The body counts were stacking up, and only one team could stop a vigilante killer that seems to be out killing serial killers. But, that wasn’t good enough for this vigilante killer. He wanted to put his skills against, one of the best team that ever was. Can the team of Macey and Bowen catch this killer before another victim is found?

I wish I can give this book more than 5 stars. The plot was enthralling, and the suspense was spellbinding. Into the Night had you guessing right up until the very last page. Can you say I didn’t see that ending coming, I assumed I guessed the identity of the villain of this story, by the introduction of the character. However, with this story having so many plot twists, I found myself second guessing at times. To me, this story is most certainly a keeper, one I will find myself reading several more times before I got enough of reading it.
I must find time to read the other books in this series. But for now, Into the Night certainly, deserve every bit of the 5 stars and more.

Keep Me Close (Lazarus Rising Book 2)

Keep Me Close (Lazarus Rising Book 2) by [Eden, Cynthia]Keep Me Close

Print Length: 276 pages / Publisher: Hocus Pocus Publishing, Inc.

Publication Date: October 24, 2017 /  Series: Lazarus Rising

Author: Cynthia Eden



Flynn Haddox is a dead man. Literally.

As a highly trained Navy SEAL, Flynn once worked covert missions for the U.S. government, but then his life was stolen away. Killed and placed in the secretive “Lazarus” program, Flynn was brought back from the dead and turned into a super-soldier. Now he has increased strength, enhanced senses, and a few psychic bonuses that he fights hard to keep hidden from the rest of the world. He also has no memory of his past…and a new, twisting darkness seems to be growing inside of Flynn.

Cecelia Gregory escaped death once. Can she do it again?

Dr. Cecelia Gregory was supposed to help the Lazarus test subjects. They didn’t have control of their emotions after the experiment, and her job as a psychiatrist was to break through the walls that the men had created. Too late, Cecelia realized that the Lazarus subjects were far more dangerous than she could ever imagine. The men came back from the dead, but some of them came back…wrong. Now one of the subjects has a dark obsession with Cecelia. The man known as Subject Five is hunting her. And he wants her dead.

One man wants to kill her, but another just…wants her.

Flynn feels a connection to Cecelia that he can’t deny. Not some sweet, innocent attraction—a consuming lust that makes him crave her all the time. Flynn knows that his feelings aren’t normal, but protecting her is his mission now. The man hunting Cecelia is just like Flynn—all the same enhancements, all the same strengths. And no weaknesses. One big difference, though—Flynn doesn’t plan to lose Cecelia. And he’ll fight his own darkness to prove his worth to her.

A hot new mystery suspense by Cynthia Eden.

Keep Me Close book #2 in the Lazarus Rising.
When we last saw Flynn…. He escaped a facility that was holding super soldiers. Humans that were brought back to life, with the formula that was made by Elizabeth Parker. Whose story was told in Never Let Go, whereas, Never Let Go surroundings was mainly in the facility. Flynn’s story has us readers out in about.
When a murder is committed all fingers points to a serial killer. Which leads the FBI to seek out Cecelia a top-notch profiler and the psychiatrist who was hired to help the Lazarus’ test subject.
Keep Me Close wasn’t as thrilling as Never Let Go. This story was more mysterious then thrilling. If you read the first book, there wasn’t a mystery. It wasn’t about the Who did it, or Why did they. The reason and who was placed right in front of you. Whereas, this book had different players. You may think you know who, but everything or everyone may not be as what they were playing to be.
I enjoyed Keep Me Close just not as much as Never Let Go. When I reviewed Never Let Go, I did say that Cynthia Eden set the bar too high…..this book may not have surpassed Never Let Go, but it does sit comfortably at #2

Never Let Go (Lazarus Rising #1)

Never Let Go by [Eden, Cynthia]Never Let Go

Print Length: 414 pages / Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited

Publisher: Hocus Pocus Publishing, Inc. / Publication Date: September 26, 2017

Author: Cynthia Eden / Series: Lazarus Rising


He was more than just a man…

Dr. Elizabeth Parker didn’t like wild, dangerous men…yet she still found herself falling for sexy Navy SEAL Sawyer Cage. He was her exact opposite–a man she should definitely stay away from, a man who lived for the thrill of danger…but he was also the man she found herself wanting more than any other.

But their secret relationship ended in heartbreak when Sawyer was killed on a mission. Grieving for him, the last thing Elizabeth ever expected was to find Sawyer listed as a test subject for the top secret government project she was heading–a project called Lazarus.

For years, Elizabeth had worked feverishly to unlock the secrets of life and death, and with her Lazarus formula, she finally thought she’d made a breakthrough. Only she never expected to use Lazarus on her lover.

But the choice is taken out of Elizabeth’s hands…

Sawyer is given the Lazarus formula, and he’s transported to a remote government facility. At that facility, Sawyer wakes once more, only he’s not the same man. He’s stronger, he’s faster, his reflexes and his senses are ten times better than an average man’s. The government calls Sawyer a super soldier… Elizabeth still calls him…hers.

Unfortunately, Sawyer has no memory of his life before Lazarus. All he knows is that something about the sexy doctor awakes a primal response in him. He wants her, and he’ll do anything to possess her. Soul-deep, he feels that she was meant to be his.

Death waits in the darkness.

But something is wrong inside the Lazarus facility. The test subjects are holding back secrets, and danger seems to lurk in the air. The Lazarus subjects are super-human now, and some of those subjects have a very, very dark side. Twisted cravings drive them to the very edge of sanity. Can Sawyer keep Elizabeth safe from the madness around them…or will the growing darkness consume them both?

What would you do if you had the knowledge to bring back the dead? Will you use that knowledge or will you let nature takes it course? Well in Never Let Go a gripping romantic suspense by one of my favorite author Cynthia Eden. We shall find out what will happen if this knowledge was a viable one.
Never Let Go is book one in Cynthia Eden new series in Lazarus Rising. This is a title that you just don’t want to pass up.
The story begins with Dr. Parker who at a young age lost everything that meant the world to her. Her parents ever since then, Dr. Parker has been working on a project for the government to battle death.
She finally found a formula that will work. But just like anything some are inpatient to test her formula. However, Dr. Parker is not so inpatient she is willing to risk life.

But when one mission goes wrong, the choice was taken out of her hands.

Never Let Go a gripping romantic suspense with characters that you will just fall in love with. I just wish I could give this book more than 5 stars. This is a book that set the bar high for Keep Me Close, the next title in the Lazarus series.
I would recommend this title for any serious reader who loves romantic suspense.

The Devil In Disguise (Bad Things Book 1)

The Devil In Disguise (Bad Things Book 1) by [Eden, Cynthia]

Don’t make the devil angry…

Luke Thorne loves having one hell of a good time. As the ruler of every dark creature to walk the earth, he certainly has more than a bit of a bad side. He lives for danger and isn’t the type to lose his heart—mostly because he doesn’t have one. Then she walks into his life.

Mina James is seduction in the flesh, a perfect temptation that the devil himself couldn’t pass up. Too late, Luke realizes he’s let a real siren into his life, a woman who is bent on using his dark powers to free herself from hidden enemies. Since Luke isn’t the type of man to be used, he should walk away from her, but…something about Mina draws him close.

Soon he’s realizing that she isn’t who she appears to be. Not dark and cold, but burning red hot. Mina is a woman fighting for her life—and the Lord of the Dark suddenly finds himself in an unlikely role…hero. Luke isn’t going to let her enemies destroy Mina. He will fight heaven and hell to keep her. But in the end, the secrets they both carry may just rip apart a love that should never have been…

There are Bad Things in the world…very, very bad. Are you ready for them?

My Review: Cynthia Eden, delivers with her new series Bad Things. With her first title in this series of course you have to start with the bad before the good.  In The Devil In Disguise we are introduced to Luke Thorne.

According to the prophecy, twin brothers are born. One to light, one to dark. The brother of light will rule over the innocent. The brother of dark will rule over the monsters of the world. In this prophecy, the brothers will battle against each other and only one will remain standing.

Luke is what every paranormal fears and if the humans aren’t it’s because they’re ill-advised. Until she walked into the room. Mina could seduce a man with just one word but she only has one man on her radar tonight…that was Luke Thorne.

Mina is fighting for her life…..and the Lord of Darkness was the only one she knows that can assist her on staying one step ahead of the government figures that was out to recapture her. But, Mina just didn’t know that she jumped out of the fire-pan and into the fire.

The Devil In Disguise was a hot romance, packed with action, plot twist and a man who could set you a flame. Take a dip into the paranormal this summer…add The Devil In Disguise and find out why Luke Thorne is the meanest guy walking.

Beware Of Me (Dark Obsession Book 4)

Beware of Me, a real treat for lovers of romantic suspense. In 4th book of Cynthia Eden Dark Obsession series we have Carly and Ethan who we all met in Need Me. This time around it’s Carly who’s in danger. They say that your past can’t hurt you it can only make you stronger. In some was this statement is true in others it can seriously kill you. Carly and Ethan past are tied together entwined so to speak by blood and death. For this reason alone Ethan walked away from Carly, just to walk back in several years later when the secret of their past were revealed.

My Take: I really, really loved this book. One thing that Cynthia Eden does best is keep you guessing; at One point I thought I solved the mystery, than she threw in a twist that I never seen coming. Ethan was the type of guy that would do anything for the one person he loves. Whereas, Carly, she was wounded but she refused to be a victim to let what happen to her when she was 17 to control the rest of her life. Which I really loved about Beware of Me, this story had really strong characters. If the suspense doesn’t grab you maybe the real hot chemistry between Ethan and Carly will.

Mine To Have Review

If you are looking for a good read to curl up with on a cold winter night make Mine To Have that book. Mine To Have is the 5th installment to Cynthia Eden’s Mine series; this also would be the first in this series I have read. I found this is not a stand-alone that to get the full effect you should start the series from the beginning. However, I decided to start with this one and can I say that I loved the story of Saxon and Elizabeth. Saxon Black was on one last assignment before he could disappear to start his new life. A life where he could leave everything that he has done behind him; only thing he has to do is make it out alive.
Elizabeth when she meets Saxon was under a life and death situation mainly her own. She doesn’t know why a crazy man is holding her hostage and she doesn’t really know why a sexy as sin man wants her for an hour. Only thing she does know is that she wants to wake from this nightmare that she find herself in.
If Cynthia Eden plan was to leave you wanting more, then I could seriously say mission accomplished. I can’t wait for the next installment.

Charming The Beast Review

Charming The Beast by Cynthia Eden. This is the 3rd book in her Purgatory Novel series. What Can I say; I loved every minute of this story. Connor Marrok. A vampire/werewolf cross-over, whose duties were to guard Chloe Quick.

Chloe was tired of being a prisoner first by her father a now by the Para Unit who wants to study her. Life would be simple for Cloe if she could escape Para Unit and the people who want to control her or kill her.

Connor and Cloe grew on you and if you followed this series, Charming The Beast did not disappoint in the terms of drama and romance. It was also nice to see the others from the prior books.
