Sinful Sunday - 10/28/12

Choi Si Won from the K-pop group Super Junior (SuJu).  He's also an excellent actor and model.  I think he's about adorable, so here are some great pics of him

Sinful Sunday 10/21/12

I absolutely love Hyun Bin.  He's great in everything I've seen him in - Secret Garden, My Name is Kim Sam Soon, A Millionaire's First Love, The World We Live In and so on.  I just LURRRV him!!  He's in the Korean Marines right now, but gets out towards the beginning of next year.  Hopefully he'll get back into acting soon:)

review: Taste Me - Tamara Hogan

Taste Me (Underbelly Chronicles #1)Taste Me by Tamara Hogan
My rating: 2 of 5 stars


The first novel in a gritty, fast-paced, and sexy new urban fantasy romance series featuring a world where incubi, sirens, valkyries, vampires, and werewolves live undetected alongside humankind. Someone has to keep the peace—and the secrets.

He Wants Her So Badly He Can Taste It...Ever since their tempestuous fling years ago, incubus Lukas Sebastiani has known that siren Scarlett Fontaine was meant to be his. But when you’re a sex demon with an insatiable desire, relationships are way more than complicated…

Her Siren Songs Bring Men to Their Knees...Rock star Scarlett Fontaine desperately needs a break after a grueling tour. But with murder and mayhem surrounding her band, and the one man she never thought to see again put to the task of protecting her, life is going to be anything but peaceful...

Every encounter between them creates more turmoil—and heat—until Scarlett pushes Lukas to the boiling point, and unleashes forces that go way beyond anything she can hope to control.

It was ok. For some reason, it took a long time for me to read this. The main characters were ok but I didn't feel the chemistry between Scarlett and Lukas at all. It had some good parts, but there were a lot of times when the story didn't really flow well. It's be liked a character was dead set on something and then the next second with no explanation, their minds are changed or the scene had changed abruptly. I didn't feel the tension and the sensual scenes were nothing great for me. And the bad guy - what was he? Why did he do why he did? I will not be continuing with the series.

review: On the Edge - Ilona Andrews

On the Edge (The Edge, #1)On the Edge by Ilona Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary (thank you -

Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.

Rose thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a better life for herself. But things didn’t turn out how she planned, and now she works a minimum wage, off the books job in the Broken just to survive. Then Declan Camarine, a blueblood noble straight out of the deepest part of the Weird, comes into her life, determined to have her (and her power).

But when a terrible danger invades the Edge from the Weird, a flood of creatures hungry for magic, Declan and Rose must work together to destroy them—or they’ll devour the Edge and everyone in it.

Review -

I liked this book. I liked the characters, the plot and the world development. Liked it. Didn't luurve it. For the most part, I liked Rose – but there were times when her stubbornness and predijuism towards bluebloods was unnerving. I thought Declan was awesome. I liked his nonchalant attitude and growing sense of humor. The little boys in the story were a hoot.

So, I liked the story. I didn't like the divide between worlds – the Edge, the Broken and the Weird. Kind of made the story too confusing and me not want to continue on in the series. Sorry. The love scenes between Rose and Declan are mighty good and so was their chemistry. This was a good quick read, but just didn't have enough to grab me into the rest of the series.
