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.

Eat Prey Love by Kerrelyn Sparks

Wanted: Bride. Must love children. Mortals need not apply.
Eat Prey Love (Avon)Carlos Panterra is looking for a mate, a woman who will love and care for the young orphans he's recently taken under his wing (or paw, as the case may be). When the shape shifter spies the beautiful Caitlyn, it's like sunshine amidst the darkness. At last, he's found the perfect woman, except . . .
Caitlyn Whelan is mortal. Worse, her father is the head of a CIA agency bent on hunting the undead. Still, Caitlyn knows that Carlos is the man for her, shape shifter or not. So she jumps at the chance when her sister offers her a job to work with him, determined to show Carlos their attraction is more than just animal magnetism. But danger lurks in the night, and their unleashed, untamed passion might just get them both killed . . .(courtesy of Amazon)

Kerrelyn Sparks goes over the top – I was enthralled almost immediately.  Her Love at Stake series has just gotten better and better as it goes on.  This group of friends, humans, vampires, shifters have become the classic family.  There’s banter, humor, drama, meddling, excitement, action… 

In this book, we finally match up our sisters, Shanna long ago was taken from her family, leaving her younger sister Caitlyn alone.  Caitlyn was led to believe her sister chose to leave her behind.  As they reunite, she is thrown into the world of the supernatural she believed were myths (where her sister has been for a few years), but she handles it as a new adventure.  And what an adventure it can be when she plants her eyes on Carlos the steamy slinky kitty cat (were-panther).  The two have an instant chemistry and it’s caught on those damn security cameras. 

Carlos does a lot of growth in this book, and I was instantly absorbed in working Caitlyn and Carlos together.  This book and the last one have got to be my favorites so far in the series.  I can’t wait for the next book where it’s about Connor.  You don’t get much of Connor in this book, but the last few have him holding my heart. 

Sparks is a genuine author.  She definitely writes where you can feel it.  Her humor and out of the ordinary quirks to the story keep you reading. 

5 slices – when we test, it’s gonna be on the whole series, so get to it!
