Sunday Book Gossip

Okay so now that I’m no longer participating in any Sunday meme displaying my books, so for now I have decided Not to participate in any new mailbox themed memes and decided to share my own Book Gossip to reflect on the past week on my blog and to share the books I’ve received from either publishers for review or purchased myself or won! Please feel free to stop by and share your Book Gossip with me in the comment box below, or leave your blog link and I’ll visit you as well!


Review Copy Received From Avon Publisher:


Once Burned

She’s a mortal with dark powers…

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person’s darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude…until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world’s most infamous vampire…

He’s the Prince of Night…

Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all—but whatever you do, don’t call him Dracula. Vlad’s ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him—a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, however, passion ignites between them, threatening to consume them both. It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

Review Copy Recieved From Author:


Wicked Nights

From the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld comes a dark, seductive new series featuring angels poised on the brink of destruction….

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless-and if he isn’t careful, he’ll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions, at any cost…until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he’s never known before.

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation-or her ultimate damnation?

Review Copy From Netgalley.

On The Island

When thirty-year-old English teacher Anna Emerson is offered a job tutoring T.J. Callahan at his family’s summer rental in the Maldives, she accepts without hesitation; a working vacation on a tropical island trumps the library any day. T.J. Callahan has no desire to leave town, not that anyone asked him. He’s almost seventeen and if having cancer wasn’t bad enough, now he has to spend his first summer in remission with his family – and a stack of overdue assignments – instead of his friends. Anna and T.J. are en route to join T.J.’s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffers a fatal heart attack and crash-lands in the Indian Ocean. Adrift in shark-infested waters, their life jackets keep them afloat until they make it to the shore of an uninhabited island. Now Anna and T.J. just want to survive and they must work together to obtain water, food, fire, and shelter. Their basic needs might be met but as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.’s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.

    Once Burned! So jealous! I hope you enjoy it and I would love to hear what you think about it. And you got Blood Bound too. I loved that book, as well as the whole Mercy Thompson series.

    Have fun reading all your new books! :)

    • MissVain says:

      Hi Michelle :)

      Thanks for visiting!!! I hope we both enjoy Once Burned because sooner rather than later you’ll be reading it as well. Less than 10 days away!:) I hope I love the Mercy Thompson series as much you do! Hope your having a wonderful Sunday, and happy reading!! <3

    My STS

  4. I’m so jealous over Once Burned and Wicked Nights! Those are so hot books, yay for review copies! Have a great week, Book Savvy Babe

  5. OK I called dibs on Bran Cornick just in case. You can have Grey, Cross and every other tortured bad boy but Bran The Marrok Cornick is mine and I do Adam Hauptman on the side! LOL

    You got a lot of sexy reads here, be careful you might implode with all the steamy reads you’ve been dabbling with.

    Justifying my Love,

    • MissVain says:

      Oh Braine!!;)

      You know I don’t set out to steal your men! However, I’m unsure who these men are?? Lol Bran, Adam??! Help me out here girl, which series do they men belong to so I can proceed with caution and hope I don’t fall in love with them because seriously I’m just grateful your willing to relinquish your rights to Christian & Gideon in order to keep these men Bran and Adam…They must be pretty outstanding for you to be willing to give up the Charley Tango & Free Gym training lessons….I mean wow!! Who are these men!!!

      So happy Braine you have justified your love to worthy men!! <3 XO

      • LOL I DID forget to mention they’re from the Mercy Thompson series that Sawesome gave you. Well you won’t get much of Bran from that series but I’m sure Adam will have a certain effect on you ;)

        • MissVain says:

          So you’re saying I must back off from the Mercy Thompson men huh?! Lmao!! Well I’ve noticed that if they’re not verbally abusive, emotionally disturbed, rich and just 50 shades of fucked I’m not as obsessed with them….what does that say about me?? Obviously nothing good LOL. *goes to find therapist phone #* lmao!!! I’ll keep my hands off your men!! Or at least try! :)

          • You can have Sam, Cimm likes him so maybe you will too, you two have similar tastes of effed up men LOL

            re: singing – better work on your scales girl, I’m serious, even if it’s a private performance, I want to hear you bust a move. I’ll be happy with Express Yourself, True Blue or Live to Tell.

            Tonight’s TB episode is just bananas! Newlin’s fang boner was hella funny.

            P.S. Tell your Daddy Happy Father’s Day ;)

  6. Tina B says:

        The fang boner!!! ROTFL! I was thinking the same thing too!! I mentioned that in my post.
