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.

Motor City Fae by Cindy Spencer Pape

Detroit artist Meagan Kelly has had a strong sixth sense all her life, but that doesn’t mean the gorgeous stranger’s crazy story—that she’s a half-elf, half human heiress—is true. But Meagan can’t deny the evidence of her own eyes—he’s Fae. A tall, blond, handsome, pointy- eared elf—and a man she just can’t get enough of. Ric Thornhill’s assignment just got a lot more complicated. The more time he spends with Meagan, the harder it is to see her as a political tool to prevent an all- out war between humans and Fae. Now Meagan’s in a race to master her newly released powers in time to prevent the conflict, convince a jealous Queen not to strip Ric of his powers, and find out if she can build a life that straddles two worlds.(back cover comments)

This is the first book in the Urban Arcana series and it sucks you in right away.  Pape has written a steamy quick read – as in quick because I could not put it down.  From the moment the book opens, our characters meet – Meagan is an artist with some hidden talents and Ric is ready to show her how to find them.  Little does Ric know that he has been looking for Meagan all along.  I found a little of the story reminiscent of a prior Fae series I have read, so I was even more involved in this one.  This story had it’s own twist and outcome I was quickly longing for.  Erotic and mysterious, this story is a keeper.  Pape did a great job wrapping the titillating sex scenes with an action packed puzzle to solve.  We have the pleasure of previewing the next in this series – Motor City Witch – and I can’t wait to start it.  Expect a review by the end of the week.  

5 slices - when I can't put it down it's a must read for you :)
