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.

Kiss at Your Own Risk by Stephanie Rowe

Kiss at Your Own RiskHe needed a killer woman...

 Blaine Underhill is one lucky man after having recently escaped a century and a half of imprisonment at the hands of an evil witch. Now he's determined to save his still-enslaved friend, but in order to do so, he'll need the help of one of the world's most lethal women.

She was drop dead gorgeous, literally...

 Trinity Harpswell is sick and tired of being a Black Widow. Having managed to go three years without accidentally killing anyone she loves, she's one short week away from freeing herself from this killer curse forever.

 When Blaine tracks her down and convinces her to help him, little does Trinity know that the next seven days are going to be murder! (summary on back cover)

Kiss at Your Own Risk is the first book in Stephanie Rowe’s Soulfire series. Having thoroughly enjoyed her Immortally Sexy series, I was excited to give this one a try. I’m definitely glad I did. This book never has a dull moment. The characters and the world Rowe has created really grab your attention and keep it. There are some great twists with characters, which always makes things interesting.

This is actually the first book I’ve read with a black widow character in it, and boy do I feel bad for poor Trinity. As if finding love isn’t hard enough, if she does manage to meet a special someone, she ends up killing them. Luckily she has family and friends that understand her situation and try to help her through it. Especially her best friend Reina, who is an interesting character herself!   They’re all hoping she makes it this last week so she'll break her curse. 

Then there’s Blaine. He has been held captive and tortured for 150 years by a witch with a crazy plan for him and all her other male prisoners. He and his three friends, other men that have been held prisoner, have planned an escape. When one of them ends up left behind, they have to figure out a way to get him back. Their best hope is the help of a black widow – so they search out Trinity.

Watching them all try to work together with their respective issues makes for some dramatic and humorous situations. Kiss at Your Own Risk was definitely was a good read. I can’t wait to see where the next book takes us!
