Heir of Fire
By: Sarah J. Maas

Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy. 

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?

Well I can't really put into words just how amazing I think this series is. Ill give you a little back ground however.

One night after I've been reading the second book in the series (Crown of Midnight) for a long while I feel asleep on the couch. I woke later to realize how late it was and headed to bed not thinking much. That night my house was broken into. I do not blame this on the book but unfortunately for a long wile I couldn't pick this book back up or any book for that matter. However, I really really was enjoying the series and it is for that reason only that I got over whatever it was that stopped me from finishing it. I picked the book back up and I had the third book finished in two days. AND DAMN AM I SO HAPPY THAT I DIDN'T WAIT ANY LONGER.

This series has seriously blown my world apart. The writing is so darn amazing along with the character development is just freaking great. Celaena is so full of strength which is proved in the second book. However, in this third installment we really get to see the underbelly of what makes up Celaena. She is not all tough nails and bitter retorts, even though there is no limit of those. She knows hurt and it's not the fake surface stuff. She stands strong for so many reasons and even though shes been beaten and battered she finds some little string of hope within herself. And it is this that shows me how truly amazing she is. I love her story so much. I really wish I could read the  next book right now cause I don't want to leave her.

One of my favorite things about Heir of Fire is the new character Rowan. He is such a freaking ass to her and continues to be a pain in her side throughout the whole book that everything moment with them together was priceless. The witty banter between them is so well done. Along with that though he also is able to make Celaena better. Not only in her ability to work with magic but also in the person she has become. There is such a tug of war for him, if he really cares for her as a person or a weapon to use in their war. I loved every single bit of it. As much as I love Chaol (which I very much do) I have to say I think Rowan is better suited for Celaena. I can't wait to see what is going to happen when all is said and done. (Please don't hate me for this)

One thing I wish wasn't the case with this book is all the switching of POV. I know there is a reason for it but I just loved every moment with Celaena that I didn't want to read about any one else. Well except Cheol and Dorian. Those were a nice touch, specially since we finally get to see exactly what their feeling with Celaena so far away. However the war games with the witches I just found boring. I would count the number of pages left to read to be back with Celaene and Rowan.

Over all the book was still amazing! For a third book in the series it still outdone the books before it. There were new friendships forged and new ties to break. There was swift action and unsuspecting drama that the story flowed so smoothly I didn't realize how addicted I was until I finished it in one day. Just an amazing series that I wish everyone would go out and read, as long as you like fantasy teen kick ass heroines. =D

∞ Abe: Four In Hand by MJ Fields ∞ Book Blitz

Twenty-six-year-old Abraham O’Donnell is the CFO of Steel Inc. After working tirelessly for over a year, he takes a week off to enjoy the sand, surf, and bikini-clad women of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. After all, he's earned it.

When a brief interlude with a flight attendant in her hotel room goes awry, Abe heads to a rental home with a private beach. While floating naked in the pool, he learns a guest house on the property is also occupied. So much for rest and relaxation. Ever the gentleman, Abe tries to make the most of his misfortune, and offers to make the beauties staying on the property some dinner.

It's senior year and Nikolette (Nikki) Bassett is a few days late for her last college Spring Break with her four best girlfriends. When she arrives, all these ladies can talk about is the guy next door. And once Nikki gets a look at him, she knows what they mean. Fresh from an afternoon of surfing, Nikki can hardly believe her eyes when Abe approaches. The sexual tension and banter between the two of them leads to steamy hot sex on the Atlantic shore.

It's only a Spring Break fling, and both Abe and Nikki know better than to make it out to be more than that. Or do they? Abe’s calm demeanor changes once he has a taste of Nikki. That night, no location is safe. He takes her on the beach and ravages her in his bed. But despite their mind-blowing sex, Abe's taste for ultimate control in the bedroom makes Nikki uneasy. Nikki's just getting over a heartbreak and she can't afford to let Abe in. So, she pushes aside her budding feelings, and leaves Florida and Abe behind without a backwards glance.

Not used to being dumped and afraid to admit how much it hurts, Abe cuts his loses and heads back to Steel Inc., resume his role at the top of Steel Inc., pouring his heart and soul into his work. But Nikki Moore won't be forgotten so easily. Her taste, scent, voice, the noises she made when he brought her to ecstasy, the way she tasted on his tongue, and felt under his touch haunts him. Always fighting for control, Abe tries to push Nikki far into the back of his mind, as he fucks the rented women he had grown accustom to.

But Karma is a bitch, and Abe blames her for Nikki leaving him the way she did. So when Nikki shows up unexpectedly, Abe welcomes Karma with open arms. Control has left the building and safety of one's heart is no longer strong enough to stop what happens next.
