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.

The MISSING by Shiloh Walker

The MissingHer psychic gift drove away the man she loved— and years later has drawn him back to her…

As a teenager, Taige Branch hated her psychic gift. No one could understand—except for Cullen Morgan, the boy who stole her heart. He did his best to accept her, until his mother was brutally murdered—and he couldn’t forgive Taige for not preventing it.
Now a widowed father, Cullen Morgan has never forgotten Taige. But what brings her back into his life is another tragedy. His beloved little girl has been kidnapped, and Taige is his only hope of finding her. Working together against the clock, Cullen and Taige can’t help but wonder whether—if they find his daughter in time—it isn’t too late for the overpowering love that still burns between them…(courtesy of Amazon)

Shiloh Walker is one of my erotic paranormal queens on my list.  This book definitely shows a different side of her writing.  The psychic powers are the paranormal aspect of this book and she's giving us steamy scenes.  The character development was extremely strong.  Immediately you are sucked into the characters, so when you hit the first tragedy, it's heart breaking.  I wasn't ready for it.  Taige has become a hard strong-willed woman.  Cullen has a lot of regret and fix.  Moving forward to solve the mystery, you unravel a few more tragic events.  Once again, catching me off guard (which means, if you didn't figure it out, I was teary eyed).  Not a spoiler, consider it a note for later :) have a tissue on hand.

I wasn't disappointed at all.  Walker is a top notch writer, I just wasn't ready for some of the emotions.  Overall, 3 slices and an extra bite - you won't be disappointed.  I definitely want more of Taige.  She would make a great lead in a furthering series.  I'll be checking to see if there are any more with Taige.  Can definitely recommend more Walker for you.


  1. This was a wonderfully crafted story. I love all of Shiloh's books.

  2. I'm not usually a fan of this type of book, but I love the review! I'm going to have to give this book a shot, I think!
