Review: A Darker Past by Jus Accardo

Check out my review of Darker Days (The Darker Agency #1) I really enjoyed the first novel in this series, Darker Days, so of course I had to read book two! A Darker Past follows Jessie and Lukas as they get themselves into yet another sticky situation of the paranormal kind. This time, Jessie has accidentally released a super-demon into the world and he is out for blood. A Darker Past was just as interesting as Darker Days. It was a really easy read with a good pace that kept me interested. It had me cracking up laughing at various points throughout the novel. There was a ton of drama in this novel, too—family drama, relationship drama, everything! It was definitely entertaining. Jessie was as much of a trouble-maker as usual. She was tough and sarcastic just as she was in book one. She is in servitude to a demon in this time around but that didn’t do anything to quell her spit-fire attitude. Jessie is always a fun character to read because of her internal and external dialogue. She never fails to give me a laugh! Lukas is a bit different in this novel—he’s been freed of Wrath but is now going through a different kind of change. He was a bit off in this novel because of it, but he was still a great character. Jessie and Lukas […]

Review: Rules of Survival by Jus Accardo

“‘I don’t want to hurt you.’ He angled himself closer, proud grin morphing into something a little more wicked. It heated my skin. ‘Don’t worry.’ Warm breath caressing the edge of my ear, he whispered, ‘I like it rough.’”  “‘Control is overrated,’ I said with a smile. He laughed. Not an amused chuckle, but a deep, dark sound that did amazing things to the nerves in my body, setting each and every one on fire. ‘Control? That’s what I’m afraid of. It seems I’ve got no control when it comes to you.’” A bounty hunter and the hunted handcuffed together? Sign me up! Rules of Survival was just as great as the rest of Accardo’s works that I’ve read. This particular novel had mystery and suspense, which kept me actively engaged in it. For the most part, there were no dull moments. The book got off to a slow start, but once it was rolling, it rolled. And there were definitely some plot twists along the way! “I kicked and thrashed. Rule of survival. Never make it easy. He wanted to double-cross me? Fine. I’d make his life a living hell in the meantime.” Mikayla was the leading lady in this novel. She was on the run from the cops, bounty hunters, and the person who killed her mother. Kayla had been framed for that–killing her mother–and had been on […]

Review: Ruined by Jus Accardo

“You didn’t hand an ex-junkie a needle without expecting a relapse. That’s what this girl was to me. An addiction I’d been trying for years to kick. No. Better to stick with the plan. Keep it casual and cool. Act like a dick. I’d do what I needed to do in town and then get the hell out.” “‘Oh my God. Skulking on the other side of my door? A little freaky don’t you think? Even for you…’ He pushed past without waiting for an invitation. ‘I don’t skulk.’ Turning, he winked. I hated it, but despite the fact that it’d been the night from hell, the quirk of his lips and curve of his cheek sent my heartbeat racing. ‘I loom. Much sexier, don’t ya think?’” I’ve been seeing the teasers and things that Jus has been posting on her Facebook, and I saw the synopsis and I couldn’t help but be curious! This novel follows Samantha and Jax, childhood best friends, as Jax comes back to the town that he left without notice after kissing Sam one night. So of course, Sam and Jax are having a hard time fighting the attraction between them that’s still held up over the years. Then you throw in Jax’s twin brother, Chase, both of which are cursed with the curse of Cain and Abel. Jax has an inner demon–Azirak–who wants to […]

Cover Reveal: Ruined by Jus Accardo

Hell is looking for a way to break loose… Jax lost the genetic lottery. Descended from Cain, the world’s first murderer, he’s plagued by a curse that demands violence in exchange for his happiness. He left everything behind, including the girl he loved, but thriving on the pain of others is lonely… And it’s killing him. After a series of heartbreaking losses, Samantha put rubber to pavement and headed for college as fast as her clunker could carry her. But she can’t outrun her problems. When an attack at school drives her back home, she’s thrown into the path of a past—and a guy—she’s been trying to forget. Sam strains Jax’s control over his darkness, but running isn’t an option this time. Someone—or, something—followed her home from school: a ruthless monster with a twisted plan centuries in the making. Forced together to survive, and fighting an attraction that could destroy them both, Jax and Sam must stop a killer bent on revenge.

After sixteen years being just plain me, suddenly, when I lose my temper, my fingers become weapons of mass destruction. Turns out I’m a semi-god, descended from Aphrodite. Sounds cool in theory, but when I accidentally put my ex-boyfriend in a coma, things go downhill pretty fast. Now some new guy named Mac Finnegan has made it his mission in life to continually piss me off. I’m stuck learning how to use my new powers while also dealing with regular high school problems, and with this annoying and super-hot—guy all up in my business, I’m about to flip out. But it gets worse. I just learned there’s this watchdog council of semis who keep an eye out for any bad apples. They think I’m the baddest one in the bunch and want to take me out before I do any more damage. My nemesis Mac might turn out to be my salvation, only he’s got secrets of his own…and they […]
