I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

In My Mailbox (63)


In My Mailbox is something was that started over at The Story Siren and I think it’s pretty awesome. It’s a way to showcase the books that you gotten through different places. Books you gotten in the mail, brought from a store, borrowed from the library, received to write a review, or they can be in eBook form. Here's a link to see how it all started.




Brought:

Slammed (Slammed #1) by Colleen Hoover {ebook}

            Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope. 

            Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
            Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart. 

Point of Retreat  (Slammed #1) by Colleen Hoover {ebook}

            Hardships and heartache brought them together…now it will tear them apart. 
            Layken and Will have proved their love can get them through anything; until someone from Will’s past re-emerges, leaving Layken questioning the very foundation on which their relationship was built. Will is forced to face the ultimate challenge…how to prove his love for a girl who refuses to stop ‘carving pumpkins.’




For Review:

Otherkin  (Otherkin #1) by Nina Berry

I thought I knew myself. Then I met Caleb.

            Dez is a good girl who does as she’s told and tries not to be noticed.
Then she rescues a boy from a cage, and he tells her secrets about herself.
Now inside her burns a darkness that will transform her.
            Everything is about to change -- and neither Caleb, nor the Otherkin, nor those who hunt them are prepared for what Dez will unleash.

Death and the Girl Next Door  (Darklight #1) by Darynda Jones

            Ten years ago, Lorelei's parents disappeared without a trace.  Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home.  For Lorelei, life goes on.
            High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be.  Until the day the school's designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it,  standing outside her house in the dark, night after night.  Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school.  Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity.  What does Jared know about her parents?  Why does Cameron tell Jared he can't have Lorelei?  And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real?  
Thrilling, sassy, sexy, and inventive, Darynda Jones's first foray into the world of teens will leave readers eager for the next installment.

Blade Song  by J.C. Daniels


            Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.
            So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.

            Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.
            If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee…

            When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she’s either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim.
            Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie.

            As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering in S&M clubs and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.

Mind Games  by Harper Alexander

RECRUITED...

          I have never known anything but the quaint legacy of Candleshire. As Mrs. Larkley would put it, "a homestead of community where everyone knows everyone". 
          I never prepared myself for a stranger in our midst. Someone who wouldn't knock. Someone who wouldn't stay for tea. Someone we wouldn't see at all. 
          But someone who would leave a most peculiar footprint. You've never seen anything like the silent brand I awoke to, marked by some stealthy artist in the night, tattooed without a whisper for something not of my making. 
          I would like to say I didn't wake up one morning victim to a stranger's unleashed conspiracy, harnessed for unknown treachery beyond my capacity. 
          
But it would be a lie, if I still belonged to a world in which lies carry any weight. ...OR REDEFINED?
