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.

Edge of Dawn by Lara Adrian - Releases tomorrow 2-26

Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost. 

Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.

Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.

This is one of those books that I have been dying for. Little Mira is all grown up - I mean it's like watching a niece grow up as she has been with us for so many of the books.  And to see that the little tidbit from our last book about her has grown into her own novel - priceless.

Adrian is amazing as she keeps this series riveting. I was sucked in and Mira is so cool.  I was amazed at how Adrian takes the series 20 years forward with this book and you don't feel like you missed those.  Talented indeed!.  Mira and Kellan are a perfect match and Adrian opened up a story line that is bound to keep us wanting more. Kellan has a couple different emotions as he reunites with Mira - and Mira just amazes me - she was raised right!

I am anxious to get to see the rest of the children we have been watching in perhaps the next books.  Adrian is always on my 'gotta have' list.  If you weren't sure - you need to get this book to continue the series.  If you have not read the Midnight Breed series before, you will not be disappointed but start from the beginning because you'll be on cloud nine!
