Tempt Me Thursday (10)

Tempt Me Thursday was created here at The Reader's Antidote, and it's basically Teaser Tuesday on sexy YA steroids and then a synopsis of my current read.

This quote is from Natural Born Angel by Scott Speer. I totally loved the first one and would have don the quote from there, but I left it at home. Anyway, the relationship between Jacks and Hadley is one that I loved watching unfold.

But instead of pondering the anxieties, she just arched her back, and her lips met Jackson's again as he pressed her against him. Her breaths came hot and shallow, as she felt the definition of the Angel's strong, lean body under his shirt, against hers. Jackson ran his hands lightly under her shirt and along her Immortal Marks. The marks began to tingle under the sensation of his fingertips... Then she drew a sharp breath in as they kissed again. Maddy threaded her hands into Jackson's hair. With the other hand, she unbuttoned Jackson's dress shirt, then began to tug at the bottom of his undershirt, and he peeled it off. She could feel the almost searing heat coming off the Angel's chest and torso as it heaved...

Sadly, this is the most romance this book has seen so far, but I'm hoping for more!
And here's actually my next read. I'm getting myself psyched up for the release of Indigo Spell. And I needed more Adrian!

PUBLICATION DATE: June 12th, 2012

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age–old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her.

When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she's supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she's been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.

Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

What's tempting you this Thursday? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I can not wait to start the Bloodline series by Richelle Mead, so I'm glad you mentioned Golden Lily. Especially with the rainy weather that is going to be around the next few days, it's pretty hard not to dream about tea and a book.

    Tempting me right now is Notes from Ghost Town by Kate Ellison and The Boy Recession by Lynn Meaney from the library.

  2. I am dying to buy Sever by Lauren DeStefano and Boundless by Cynthia Hand but I am a book behind in both series. So I made a note to myself that I can buy them when I finish both sequels, but not before! Trying to be good...


I always appreciate comments and cherish every one of them. THIS IS AN AWARD-FREE ZONE. I don't have the time to fulfill the requirements for the awards, but thank you so much for thinking of me. I just ask for no vulgarity, and if you have any issues with my reviews or writing style, please e-mail me instead of commenting. Now, vent to your heart's content!
