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.

Book 2 in the Dark Kiss trilogy – A Second Chance at Forever tops its prequel My Love Eternal

I can honestly say I have never had shivers as I read a book, as I approached the last pages of this one, I was just quivering from the emotions.  As Rachel’s heart is retched from her body as Giovanni is gone, she’s pushed into the arms of another.  An unconditional love can not replace the soulmate she’s lost, or can it? She struggles for 2 years to keep emotions at arms length as she rebuilds her life, but she’s already made decisions that have sparked interest.  And then there are the night mares, so vivid, so real, how will she ever be normal again.

Rachel makes every effort to complete herself, as a vampire she left her human life, and now she longs to reconnect, anything to help her.  She’s a thriving club owner, but vengeance is the only thing that will help her.  As they make a plan of attack to finally end their running – Strange has managed to put you right in the middle of it all.  You’re emotionally torn just as Rachel is, and all the while you suspect you know what’s going to happen, I was on pins and needles because I didn’t want it to.  The Desmarais attack again and it’s time to get revenge.  Strange manages to pull the emotions right into the heat.  And let me tell you – she’s got the sex scenes down.  The passion, the details, the effortless explanations that don’t drag out or over do it.  Damn!  All the while Strange brings in new characters that just fit. 

By the end of the book, I was just on edge – and then it happens – the outcome I knew was coming.  THANK YOU LIZ STRANGE for doing it right.  I was so stressed because I couldn’t make up my mind and it had to be just so…Well it was.  Eli has a special place in my heart.  I am awaiting book 3 because Strange is now on my ‘have to read pile’.  Stay tuned for more from her.
