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.

Sins of the Heart by Eve Silver

Sins of the Heart (Hqn)Half human, half god, Dagan Krayl is the Underworld's most powerful soul reaper. When one of his brothers is murdered, Dagan must use every ounce of his power to hunt down those responsible for his brutal death. But he must move swiftly—and carefully—if he's to have any chance of resurrecting his brother.
Yet that resurrection could wreak havoc on the mortal world. As an Otherkin, Roxy Tam has sworn to protect the human race, and it's her mission to stop Dagan. But when she sees him face-to-face, she realizes that she has seen him once before—a meeting that changed her life forever.
Neither Dagan nor Roxy expect to join forces for the sake of mankind. Or to have their loyalties tested as they struggle against the potent desire that threatens to consume them both….(courtesy of Amazon)

3 and a half books in this 'trilogy', the Otherkin, I was anxious to get them started.  One thing i love to do is go in blind with books.  I see a cover, or a blurp about them, and I give it a try.  It lets me immerse myself in the world/book with no preconceived notions.  I read a quick summary a few months back about Sins of the Flesh (book 3) and couldn't wait to start the series.  Well, as time passed before I picked it up from the TBR pile, I wasn't sure where Eve Silver's Sins of the Heart (Book 1) was going to take me.  Elated with the result.  

The Topworld and Underworlds that Silver has created are amazingly descriptive.  While they lack some 'common' mythology and history, Silver makes them her own with her perceptions and detail.  The way the worlds mesh together, yet are not supposed to collide, is a large part of the set up for this series.  Especially since when the worlds collide, it involves our lead characters, Dagan and Roxy.  Forbidden desire is definitely hot!  

From page 1, we're hit with suspense.  The next pages held true to evolve the mystery, a few times it was a little slow going, but the ultimate package was worth the wait.  In the 300+ pages, Dae and Roxy felt like they were unwrapped in front of me, real, believable, and heart-catching.  As our mystery develops, only part of it unfolds and is solved. Silver ends the book with a token of resolution and then a straight cliff hanger.  DELIGHTEDLY Well Done!!
