Cinder tilted her chin up, fixing her gaze on the man. Beside her, Wolf lowered himself into a fighting position, his fingers curled and ready, all at Cinder's urging. For the first time, she felt a spike of new emotion from him. Hatred, she thought. For her.
She ignored it.

  1. She sounds ready to do battle. I've been wanting to read this.
    I hope you had a great vacation. I'm just back from a short one myself. Hard to get back into the groove of things. Welcome back!

  2. Okay, so how is this book? I've been wanting to know from "like" minded readers (which I consider you to be). Shall I just wait for your review? ;)

  3. I know how that is. Now that the whole family comes with us on vacation, I don't read diddly squat.

  5. I did the same thing last week. Had all of these high expectations to read while I was on vacation, but then time got away from me and I ended up reading the same book for nearly two weeks.

    I'm interested in this series. I recently bought Cinder, so hopefully I can get to it soon.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. I'm on vacation right now, too. I brought four books with me and two audiobooks. So far I've finished one book and will finish the second today. Not as much reading time as I anticipated!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
