The Van Allen Legacy

With the stunning revelation surrounding Bliss's true identity comes the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods. Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods now find themselves in an epic battle for survival. Not to worry, love is still in the air for the young vampires of the Upper East Side. Or is it? Jack and Schuyler are over. Oliver's brokenhearted. And only the cunning Mimi seems to be happily engaged.
Oh I plowed through this so very very fast because I simply had to know what was going to happen. I can safely say that I am very very happy with the way the story is going. Mimi is still not one of my favorite characters but she actually shows some growth. And the story with Jack/Sky/Oliver was very good as well. And I can see where the next branch of stories is going to go. All in all a very good read and one I am glad I own to enjoy again!

Hannah Murray - Tooth and Nailed

So what if there's a psychotic nut after her? Rowan Evans doesn't like the idea of being whisked away by her father's security chief for safekeeping. Jack Donnelly rubs her the wrong way, gets on her nerves, and the last thing she wants to do is spend two weeks under his protective custody even if he is tall, blond and delicious. Jack has spent a lifetime and then some keeping people safe. So when he learned his oldest friend's daughter was in danger, he knew there wasn't anything he wouldn't do to keep her out of harm's way, including kidnapping her. And if it gives him some time to get a little closer to a woman who's always gone out of her way to keep him at arm's length, so much the better. He knows she'll be mad, but he can handle it. Can't he? When a self-sufficient, independent woman butts heads with a stubborn Irishman, there are bound to be sparks. And that's before she finds out he's a vampire

Ok I FEKKING LOVED this book. There were parts in it that had me laughing so hard I had Captain Useless come in from the other room to see if I was ok. My only complaint with the book is the vernacular used to describe the female is classified as an erotica/romance for this reason but in all honsety I wasn't truly offended by said four letter it was not used as a derogitory term only another way to refer to a woman's "special place" I was able to roll with it. Really and truly this was a good bit of romance and Jack is just sooooo very cool!!!

Gotta love an Irish man!!! *PURRRR*
