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.

Tempt Me with Darkness by Shayla Black

Tempt Me with Darkness (The Doomsday Brethren, Book 1)He's an immortal knight hungering for satisfaction....
As soon as Marrok sees Olivia Gray's dark windswept hair and burning violet eyes, he's sure they've met in eons past. He's felt her soft gentle curves writhing in pleasure beneath his own hard powerful body...Morganna! For centuries, towering Marrok, once the mightiest of King Arthur's warriors, has endured a terrible curse cast upon him when he spurned the witch.
She's a modern woman about to discover ancient magic....
Olivia shares a mystical -- and irresistible -- connection with brooding Marrok. Soon after the sexy warrior appears in her erotic dreams, he abducts her, demanding she uncurse him. Their intense passion is more powerful -- and intimate -- than either of them has ever known. Olivia may be the key to unlocking the diary that will break Morganna's hold on his life. But in the wrong hands, the book also holds the power to destroy all magickind. As they search for answers, a ruthless wizard returned from exile is building an army of evil. When he discovers Marrok and Olivia have the diary, only their love -- with the help of a powerful group of magical Brethren -- can save them. (courtesy of amazon)

Shayla Black’s Doomsday Brethren series kicks off with a bang – Tempt me with Darkness is the first in the series. 

Immediate gripping read – I couldn’t let it go.  Marrok hits you hard with his vengeance and his passion.  Be it for the arts or his sexy leading lady, Marrok warms you right to the core.  Black doesn’t hold back with any of the erotic yums.  Olivia is thrust into the magic world and is one lucky girl to get her age old warrior. 

Pulling the series for mostly the magical world, Black keeps you interested with the heat and the battle.  Aligning a strange team of “brethren”, Black pulls in a delicious mix to combat the evil wizard.  Black definitely does hold out any of the casualties of war – she gives us a real series that thrusts you into the anguish of the situation.  Hot in my hands I flew through this book and couldn’t wait to pick up the next.  It was like an itch I had to scratch.  Favs – gotta be Ice and Shock…

Pick this one up as quick as you can! 5 slices
