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.

Lover Unleashed by J R Ward

Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 9)Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself-only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can-but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?(courtesy of Amazon)

This has to be the third best Black Dagger Brotherhood yet – ok maybe I’m a little bias because this is Payne and Manny’s book and there is a TON of V - - - you know how I love V!  He’s one of my favorite brothers. .

Ward is shockingly amazing as she continues to weave this world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.  She’s going strong and captivates her audience. 
Payne – I kinda want to be Payne – she is the hard as nails fighter with a soft center.  It’s the perfect combination next to Xhex (who I really want to be).  The bad ass girls are definitely in the ranks. 
As Payne and Manny’s story unfolds, V and Jane and Butch (can’t leave out Butch) are challenged to work out some huge kinks.  Until V can come to terms with himself, his twin can’t be happy.  The story takes a big focus on V and smaller on Payne.  Emotions roller coaster with Jane and V; Payne and Manny manage to steam it up; and some how, we’re caught right in the middle where we want to be.  Could we have had more Payne?  Maybe, but honestly I think there is more to come.  While Wrath, Rhage, Z and V had over the top action, we know the last 3 previous books have shown our more emotional brothers.  This book, meshes them together.  If you’re looking for a spoiler about Blay and Quinn, let’s just say, their saga continues…
Ward knocks me over again as she manages to get so much into a book less than 500 pages.  The story runs like a well-oiled machine, given the number of situations Ward normally has going on in the books and the switch back and forth, this one is done over the top the best.  As a mom of boy/girl twins, I loved the Payne/V relationship. 
If you have never read the series, jump up and get to the store to find Dark Lover – Book 1 in the series.  You will not be disappointed.  If you are just waiting for your copy of Lover Unleashed to arrive, when it gets there, rip open the package, close and lock your door, and read on!  Ward’s announced the next book, I’ll say it’s not Blay and Quinn L But I’m hoping with the new characters in this book, it grabs the action again….
