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.

Mob Rules by Cameron Haley

Mob Rules (Luna Books)I'm Domino Riley, an enforcer for Shanar Rashan.
Like most mob bosses in L.A., he's a powerful sorcerer, battling for control of the city, gathering up the magic of violent and powerful emotions and storing it for his own use. Back in the day, Rashan saved me from the streets and made me his lieutenant. You could say I'm his go-to girl.
When a fellow gangster is ritually executed, I have to find out which of Rashan's enemies was behind it—and why. The cryptic messages I'm getting from the Beyond tell me it wasn't a simple hit.
With the bodies piling up, I need to win an occult gang war, take out the supernatural traitor within our outfit and, oh yeah, deal with the mixed messages I'm getting from the boss's son….(courtesy of Amazon)

Don't judge a book by it's cover.  I wasn't overly excited by the cover, but the summary had me interested.  Thank goodness I gave it a go.  

Cameron Haley is a new writer and some times the urban fantasy genre needs a new take.  Haley gives us that and more.  Domino Riley is a 'mob' chic, in the world of the paranorm.  What a great concept of taking the "mobsters" and meshing the concept on to the hidden 'otherworld'.  Domino is hot and bad ass.  Haley has done a great job of putting that sexy bad ass to show her smart magical powers.  The mystery unfolds as we try to find out who/what/why the murders are occurring.  Good action keeps the book moving along.  
I see great things as the series moves forward.  Anxiously awaiting a book 2...
