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.

Unraveled by Gena Showalter

Unraveled (Harlequin Teen)Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he's supposed to be crowned Vampire King—while still a human! Well, kind of.
With four—oops, three now—human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been "different" himself. These souls can time-travel, raise the dead, possess another's mind and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.
The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart.
Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn't about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life….(courtesy of Amazon)

Book 2 in the Intertwined series – Showalter is still packing action and twists.  

Picking up right where we left in Book 1 (my favorite way to start a sequel), Aden barely has time to recover from his meeting with the vampires, when the Fae are up for a battle.  Aden and Riley are glad to give them a run for their money.  Of course, there’s more factions where they came from.  Everyone wants a piece of Aden.  Mary Ann learns that she’s not such a good girl after all, she has a unique and deadly ability.  Showalter has done the great task of setting up delightful characters.  She gives us action and intrigue mixed with a little spice.  Some how, Showalter amazingly manages to throw so much our way in the book, yet, when you start to feel like it’s too much, she grabs you back in, makes it work, and plays it out right before your eyes.  I thoroughly ended up enjoying this book, and look forward to seeing where this series goes.
