Review of Heaven (Halo #3) by Alexandra Adornetto

Heaven (Halo, #3)
Bethany, an angel sent to Earth, and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier, have been to Hell and back. But now their love will be put to its highest test yet, as they defy Heavenly law and marry. They don’t tell Beth’s archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, but the angels know soon enough, and punishment comes in a terrifying form: the Sevens, who are rogue angels bent on keeping Beth and Xavier apart, destroying Gabriel and Ivy, and darkening angelic power in the heavens.
The only way Bethany and can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age. Gabriel and Ivy set them up at college, where they can’t reveal their relationship, and where there is still danger around each corner. Will Bethany be called back to Heaven – forever – and face leaving the love of her life?

My Thoughts 
I got this on my birthday as a gift from my sister. I was waiting to read this from the moment I finished reading Hades the second book. The title of the book makes so much sense  as the first one was called "Halo" then the second one is called "Hades" and now "Heaven" which is basically the main theme of the books I'm hoping it is.. with heaven as it was with the 2 before. The description also makes me feel that my idea is correct and i love that this is the conclusion and I hope.. I really hope its an ending I will love. The last thing is the cover,,, the amazing cover, I love how it looks like Bethany is being dragged back into heaven and Xavier is trying to pull her back down but that's not what makes it an amazing cover the the fact they form a Love Heart doing so.

This book was very good and I enjoyed every little bit about it. The story line was amazing and there was never a dull moment. The relationships between all of the characters was amazing and well thought out. I loved how new characters were introduced as well as the ones which were in book 1 and 2. I am glad that the book ended on this book, though I will always miss this story line.

The pace of the book is perfect for me as it wasn't too fast or too slow. The style of writing was easy to understand and there wasn't anything complicated in the way the author wrote and also she doesn't use big complicated words which I am happy about.

The two main characters Bethany and Xavier may of made a few rash decisions throughout the book but you can tell that they love each other with all of each others heats and they are willing to risk anything to be with each other. I loved the chemistry between them and I think in my opinion this is on the most cute couples ever.

I am so happy that Alexandra Adornetto wrote these 3 books, and I hope that she has a very happy life knowing she has made me happy with these books.

Review of Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway

Come forth with an open mind, for an unconventional tale of love..

Dublin native Freda Wilson considers herself to be an acquired taste. She has a habit of making offensive jokes and speaking her mind too often. She doesn't have the best track record with first impressions, which is why she gets a surprise when her new neighbour Nicholas takes a shine to her.

Nicholas is darkly handsome, funny and magnetic, and Freda feels like her black and white existence is plunged into a rainbow of colour when she's around him. When he walks into a room he lights it up, with his quick wit and charisma. He is a travelling cabaret performer, but Freda doesn't know exactly what that entails until the curtains pull back on his opening night.

She is gob-smacked and entirely intrigued to see him take to the stage in drag. Later on, Nicholas asks her if she would like to become his show assistant. Excited by the idea, she jumps at the chance. Soon she finds herself immersed in a world of wigs, make-up and high heels, surrounded by pretty men and the temptation of falling for her incredibly beautiful employer.

In this story of passion and sexual discovery, Nicholas and Freda will contend with jealousy, emotional highs and lows, and the kind of love that only comes around once in a lifetime.

My Thoughts
The author contacted me and asked if I wanted to review something different to her past books, and of course I was going to yes!. The cover stands out and is so different to other books, and I know I say this a lot, but doesn't that just show how so many authors can be so individual. The title, at first I was confused on what it meant, but once reading the brilliant description you then realise why.. hehe.

This book was amazing. it was so different to any kind of romance story I have ever read in my entire life. The romance in this novel is so real and realistic, as they didn't just go up to each other and say "I love you".... it more like a developing relationship which is so good, as I doubt there is such thing as love in first sight, but.. you never know it could be true in some cases.

I loved the pace of the book, and how it wasn't boring and then interesting and then boring like some books I have read before. It was INTERESTING through out the whole book. The style of writing is perfect and easy to read and understand.

The two main characters are so amazing and I really liked how they formed a relationship, they both had some positives which I loved about them , and also negatives as everyone has those certain flaws.

I am so happy that L.H. Cosway still likes me enough to send me these books for free for an honest review. I have loved every single book you have written so far, and I am sure to love your future ones too.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves a twist in a romance novel, people who have read other books by this author and also just.. if you love books in general.


ps. Sorry for the long wait.

Cover Reveal: Tegan's Magic (The Ultimate Power #3) by L.H. Cosway


L.H. Cosway emailed me asking if I wanted to show off her new cover for the new book; Tegan's Magic, and of course I said yes :) 
I have been waiting for this book for so long, and though it may not be released until March, seeing the cover will just have to do for now :) 

So here it is, the brilliant cover:

Tara: OMG.. she looks so.. dominant and powerful and stronger, and the fact its all black and white just makes it that much better :)


Something is rotten in Tribane city. The humans are descending into madness and Tegan is certain that Theodore has something to do with it. 

The sorcerer and his followers have sent her father to hell and she's determined to bring him back. She's not going to lie down and play dead this time, now she has magic on her side. 

And then there's the alliance she and her friends have made with Ethan and his group of exiled vampires – vampires who were exiled because of something she did. She's not having the best time living under their quiet condemnation, especially Ethan's new-found hostility. 

With all that going on, Tegan doesn't feel like her love life should be taking centre stage, yet she's finding that her friendship with Finn is evolving into something she never expected. The question is, should she explore the possibility of Finn or wait for Ethan to finally forgive her? 

Both Whitfield and Pamphrock are regrouping, but which side is going to make the first move? 

There will be magic. 

There will be fighting. 

Blood will be spilled. 

Someone will emerge as the new ruler of Tribane and the only thing that's certain is the city will never be the same again.

In my opinion, this sounds.. amazing and I can't wait to read it :)
