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's Betrayal by J E Hopkins

Lover's Betrayal: Misfits of the Lore SeriesA Vampire Out to Clear Her Son's Name. 
A Former Lover Bent on Revenge. 
But Neither is Prepared for What Happens Next...

Vampire couple Olivia and Lucian were forced to separate nearly two centuries ago, but now a series of murders has brought them back together. Their task? To investigate who's responsible for the grisly killings. And the prime suspect is none other than Olivia's son, Kaden. 
For Olivia, the reunion brings back all the pain of their shattered love-a love she abandoned to marry another. The decision held fateful consequences for herself and her troubled, warring sons. But her new mission also offers a chance at redemption as she risks everything to prove Kaden's innocence-and put back together a fractured family before it's too late. 
Through it all, Olivia faces the seemingly unyielding hate of Lucian, a powerful leader of the Council, the enforcers of all immortals. He's determined to seek vengeance on Olivia and her son-but can his hatred withstand the love his heart can't deny? (courtesy of Amazon)

As an up and coming author, Hopkins delivers nicely in this book!  1st in the Misfits of the Lore series – Lover’s Betrayal takes the story of Vampires and adds the aristocrat structure.  A classic tragedy – as a ‘slave’ Olivia can not be with Lucian even though they are in love – so when she ends it – his life is crushed.  Leave it to a guy to think the situation is that simple! 

After 200 years she’s ready to end her struggle – but one thing is in her way – patching the relationship of her two sons.  This book starts out strong and kept me with it – I wanted to understand Olivia’s past and Hopkins does well to give it to you slowly as it unfolds with the story. The plot of the mystery is strong – pulling in new characters as she sets up this group.   I love the concept of where it seems Hopkins with go – these ‘misfits’ out to work together. 

As Olivia and Lucian come in contact with each other after all these years – their pull is strong.  Now Hopkins did well with her romance and her heat in this book between the two.  Passionate and sexy with an unmatchable bond - She’s got a great start and I’m hoping to hear she has book 2 coming out soon.
