Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Blood Magic by Eileen Wilks

Blood Magic (World of the Lupi, Book 6)Lily Yu and Lupi prince Rule Turner have a bigger problem than their families not accepting their impending human/werewolf mixed marriage. A powerful ancient nemesis of Lily's grandmother has come to San Diego to turn the city into a feeding ground. (courtesy of Amazon)

5 slices, you need this series.  I know I usually save my rating for the end of the review, but I LOVED this book.  Wilks CONTINUES to keep me addicted to this series.  I am crossing my fingers for the newest book (Blood Challenge) to arrive a little early. 
As soon as I crack open her books, I’m engaged.  Just about finished with one of the short stories from the series (between Mortal Sins and Blood Magic) and I truly mean it, on page one I’m engaged back into the World of the Lupi. 
In Blood Magic, during one of the happiest times of their lives, dearest friend, Cullen is attacked, and on Clan Property.  Lily jumps in to handle the investigation, but is torn because this is someone she cares for as a brother and her mate's life long friend. 
Lily’s on a reality check where she needs to determine her feelings on marriage.  She is such a strong character for a small Asian woman.  Working with her mate, Rule, to fight the evils that jeopardize the world’s safety hasn’t left her much time for her wedding plans, which she is not upset about.  Lily has been extremely independent and opening her life to change has been one thing she has avoided.  Somehow, closure from an ex, fighting the bad guy (or girl as it may be), and trying to keep everyone alive has set her on the right path.  We learn more of where Lily's special talents have come from - as well as more about her 'magical' grandmother's past.  Amazingly done, Wilks, brings in more of the back story.  Thrills, mystery, and plot you can't go wrong.
