Every breath and every heartbeat and every minute of every day was spent waiting for you,” Reyna whispered against his skin.

His perfect skin. The hard-muscled chest, the cold feel to him, the awareness of his body pressed against hers. She had waiting so long for this. So very long.

“Becks,” she said. She ran her hands against his jaw and forced him to look down at her. A bottomless sea of onyx enveloped her. “Say something.”

“I love you,” he said like a prayer.

As the provocative, sensual Blood Type series continues, the rare bond between Reyna and Beckham is threatened by betrayal, greed, and twisted secrets.
A desperate human. A powerful vampire. A world divided.
Reyna Carpenter was promised paradise. She was delivered into hell.
Giving up her body for money was supposed to be the hardest part of becoming a blood escort. She never expected to lose her heart to her dark, enigmatic boss, Beckham Anderson. After being taken by a depraved captor who plans to rule the world, Reyna will do anything to return to Beckham.
She just has to find the will to survive this game.
From the pawn, rises a queen.

I absolutely loved reading Blood Type and when it ended with that crazy cliffhanger, I couldn’t wait to take another bite of this dark and delicious series. Blood Type was dangerously fun, pleasantly tantalizing, and so incredibly sexy. I was addicted and so enamored by the world building, the characters and the story line. I am so damn excited to start reading Blood Match this weekend and cannot wait to see what happens next with Beckham and Reyna.

booksintheseries

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

The stunning conclusion to the Blood Type series finds the world in chaos and turmoil with one final battle left to determine who will survive—humans or vampires.

She had the world on her shoulders. Now she has nothing.

Reyna Carpenter was twenty-one when she became a live-in blood escort for the ruthless and darkly handsome vampire Beckham Anderson. She thought this was just a small price to pay for feeding her brothers back home.

But nothing went as planned. Not even her tumultuous relationship with Beckham. And now she wonders if anything will ever be the same again.

As she finds herself in the midst of a losing rebellion, she and her trusted friends must flee from a city conquered by the vampire elite. With their plans blown to pieces and everything they knew and loved gone, their future hangs in the balance.

Despite all she has lost, Reyna must rise from the ashes, reclaim the life that was stolen—and complete her mission, once and for all.

First Lines Fridays

Hello my wonderful and amazing bookish friends!!! I hope you’re all doing just fine and having a really fantastic day! So insanely happy it’s Friday and the weekend again aren’t you?!?

Mannn, it has been such A LONG TIME since I’ve done a First Lines Fridays post. Life has been ridiculously busy for me and I feel like I’m always trying to catch up… I’ve been really tired lately too that I just let my One Year Blog Anniversary (May 26) pass by. It’s not that I’m not motivated to keep blogging, but I literally have no time and would rather relax and read. Also, my long blog post to do list is quite intimidating and I don’t even know where to start anymore… For right now, it seems like the only thing I have time for is premade book promotions, reading and reviewing. That being said and while it may be LATE, I am still planning on doing a giveaway for my One Year Blog Anniversary. Maybe not next week or even this month, but definitely really soon. I have some fun ARCs, books and swag, so it should be really amazing!

Anyway, that went on longer than I had in mind so thanks for reading my little life update…now let’s get to my First Lines Friday pick for today!

I sleep with all my bedroom windows open as habit, so I’m roused from my sleep by the repetitive shrieking of a great blue heron that must be nesting near the man-made lake in the center of the apartment complex. Where are my soft-spoken finches and friendly bluebirds? I wonder with a dreamy smile. Not in Tallahasee apparently.

The heron is loud and insistent, refusing to be ignored. I need to get out of bed, anyway, — a long, busy day awaits. I picture Jake’s face — that bemused close-lipped smile, those gently blue eyes — and memories of last summer flood my mind and my heart. I throw back my covers in a burts of anticipation. A long, busy, fabolous day awaits.

Chin up, Princess, or the crown will slip.

A theme park princess must put her life back together after her happily ever after falls apart in this contemporary YA romance from Karole Cozzo, author of How to Keep Rolling After a Fall and How to Say I Love You Out Loud.

Everything was supposed to be perfect. Alyssa has a job she loves, working as Cinderella at her favorite theme park; a fantastic group of friends; and a boyfriend who will no longer be long distance. But as the summer progresses, her prince becomes less charming and more distant, and Alyssa’s perfect summer falls apart.

Forced to acknowledge that life is not always a fairy tale, Alyssa starts working to pull her herself back together. Fortunately, she doesn’t have to do it alone. With her friend Miller’s support, she’s determined to prove that she’s more than just a pretty princess. And with his help, maybe she’s finally ready for something better than dreams. Maybe she’s ready for something real

Karole Cozzo is such a sweetheart for sending me a paperback copy. She had messaged me on twitter and told me she was a huge Disney fan too and thought that I would enjoy this book. Well, I think she’s absolutely right! The premise sounds really fun and adorable and totally perfect for Disney lovers! Cannot wait to get into this!!!

Oh and I took it with me on a recent Disneyland Trip
