This is something new I am going to try where every Thursday I am going to talk about a book I have read in the past.
I am always on the hunt for a new addictive UF/PNR series that I can’t seem to put down. I don’t find them often but when I do, I think its fun to share.
Title: The Keepers (Alchemy, #1)
Author: Donna Augustine
Published: April 13, 2013
Two days ago, Jo Davids was a waitress by night and a college kid by day, with the unnerving problem of things floating around her.
One day ago, Jo’s sexy boss, Cormac, noticed her for all the wrong reasons when she witnessed a man transform into a monster in the basement of his casino.
Today, Cormac ordered her shot. If he’s real lucky, she won’t die. Because if she does, all hope is lost.
Why I love this book and Series:
I read this book two years ago and at the time my reviews were less than a paragraph. Not very descriptive.. But what I remember, I really like. The main character Jo is broken and has a difficult life. Grown up in one foster home after another leaves her without friends or a family to call her own. Add to this the fact she is able to make strange things happen.. she lives a pretty secluded life.
When Jo starts her new job at a casino she meet the mouth watering Cormac. To say things don’t start off on a positive note is an understatement. Cormac is one of those characters who pulls off a sexy and fun mix of bad boy who isn’t a complete ass. I won’t give away any juicy details, but there are parts in this book where you can’t turn the page fast enough and you are unable to believe what just happened.
The world building was steady and good. But really, it’s the sexual tension that becomes addicting in this book. Pair that with a sarcastic and funny dialog and the series became one of my favorites.
On Amazon right now,The Keepers (The Alchemy Series Book 1) -the first book in this series – is only $.99 Not much of a gamble if you are on the fence about reading this book. I promise it is worth the dollar 🙂 You can get the The Keepers Box Set (Alchemy Series) Books 1-4 for $6.99. Something to think about.
“We’ve all got skeletons, but I’m afraid you might have a whole god damn cemetery. I’m going to go through with your plan, mostly because I don’t know if we have a choice. What really bothers me though, is that my gut feeling tells me that as much as I sense the fight in you, I’m not so sure you’d run away from death. Making plans with someone like you is dangerous.”
“He smelled too good, he looked too good and it was just completely unfair. Villains were supposed to be ugly. Just another way I was getting screwed in this deal. My villain didn’t even look like he was supposed to.”
“Desperate people should be placated until you can get as far away from them as humanly possible, because desperate people had a bad tendency of blowing up and taking you with them.”
I hope you check it out!
