Book Review: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer Armentrout

Goodreads Summary: Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Reading this book has be going in so many different directions! In my White Hot Kiss review I pretty much established where I wanted to go and who's side I was on. With Layla being part warden and part demon I wanted her to embrace the latter. Upon reading this book some of my feeling are in the air. 

In this story there is a mystery that has everyone one wondering or some. Zanye and Roth have to work together for the sake of Layla and then there are some lies in between the two of them. This book was centered mostly around Layla and Zayne's relationship. She trust Zayne with everything but she knows deep down that she can be herself with Roth. Some situations that occurred in the story proved that (not going to spoil it :)).  I did feel that Layla had some serious moments where she needed to "grow up" and I hope that in the next installment she is a bit more mature. Still, I love her. 

Now for a bit fangirling. I honestly can't decided where this triangle is going. Through the story I was all for happy for Zayne for stepping up and showing Lalya just how he felt
Then I remembered I hate love triangles. I knew that Layla still had strong feelings for Roth and that part of her would never go away no matter how hard he tried to push her away from him and vice versa. 
 She didn't quite know which direction to take. 
Roth still had his bad boy charm (which I loved) but there is a much softer side of him that is displayed from the story. He and Zayne both have the same thing in common and that is Layla. Everyone one is trying to figure out the answer to the big question "Who will she be with?" As I said before, I can't decide.

(SIGHS) The ending.  I turned to page on my kindle and when I saw it go to the Amazon page my jaw hit the floor. It could not end like couldn't. I have to wait until the July of 2015 to get my hands on the next book. 

Overall I loved reading Stone Cold Touch and all of it's goodness.

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…
