Even the hottest love can turn a girl cold-blooded…

Life’s tough for a vampire thief on the run—just ask Pandora Scott, she knows. Four years ago she ran away from home after everyone she loved betrayed her. But now her annoyingly grown up (and handsome) ex boyfriend is stalking her, begging her to return. A mysterious vamp with a particularly dangerous (and sexy) stare keeps popping unexpectedly into her life. The extremely powerful head vampire of New York is hunting her down because she may or may not have broken into his highly-secure, highly-secretive personal vault. And the fate she’s been trying to outrun? Well, it’s about to catch up. Because even a super-speedy vamp with the ability to disappear can’t escape her own destiny.

Excerpt: 
All she wanted to do now was forget. Forget Jax, forget everything he’d stirred up, forget her birthday. So, she downed another bloody cocktail, this time O-negative. And another after that. She let the feeding frenzy take over, let the high of fresh life wash through her.
She drank.
And danced.
And lost herself in the blood and the music and the touch of other cold bodies just like hers, searching for that little spark of life, reveling in it.
“You look good enough to eat,” a sultry voice whispered in her ear.
Pandora whipped around lightning fast, flashing her fangs. “I bite.”
The man smiled, lips practically dripping with sin. “Me too.”
Normally, this was when she’d punch and run. Seduction wasn’t really her thing. It just made her think of another boy and another time she’d never get back. But tonight was different. Tonight she wanted to be free. Tonight she was determined to move on, to move forward.
So she grinned back, taking the stranger in. And really, a girl could do worse, much worse. He was tall, broad, with bright golden hair that seemed almost aflame in the darkness of the club. His vampire-blue eyes were just as bright as hers, flashing with unabashed hunger, brazen want. His skin, though, was what really caught her eye. It was sun-kissed and bronzed, not pallid, not washed out by his ebony shirt. Somehow he looked almost warm to the touch.
Before she could stop herself, Pandora lifted her fingers, stretching for the triangle of hard skin at the base of his throat, exposed between two sets of open buttons.
He stepped swiftly to the side.
The darkness seemed to follow, wisps of ebony clinging to his frame, undulating with his every movement.
“Not yet,” he murmured, never once taking his eyes off her.
The longer he held her gaze, the more familiar it seemed to become, as though she’d seen those eyes before, as though this wasn’t the first time they had caressed her body.
“Have we met?” she asked.
His smile deepened, filling with secrets she could tell he had no intention of spilling. “Not like this.”
“Like what then?”
But he looked away without answering, sweeping his stare down to her lips, to every inch of exposed skin, lifting back to her throat, pausing there. She didn’t move. There was a dangerous sort of confidence about him, but against her will, she found it alluring, intriguing in a forbidden way. She’d always been drawn to things she wasn’t supposed to have. Usually, she took them anyway.
She reached out again, trying to touch him.
He moved deftly away, almost made of air as he circled behind her.
“Pandora,” he whispered into her ear, breath like a kiss against the soft skin of her neck, making her shiver.
And then the word he spoke registered.
Her name.
He knew her name.
“How…?” She spun around, trailing off when she realized there was nothing there, no one there.
A ghostly finger brushed against her elbow, tracing a burning path up her arm. “You’re not the only one who knows how to disappear.”
Pandora spun again.

 

But he was gone.

Summer of Irreverence – The Rock Star by Cathrine Goldstein

Summer of Irreverence – The Rock Star
by Cathrine Goldstein
Genre: Adult Romance
The Wild Rose Press

Summary from Goodreads:

Straight-laced, veterinary surgeon, Summer Wynters is ready to break the rules. And who better to break them with than the most irreverent of all men, mega rock star Malcolm Angel? With one last summer free from work obligations, Summer moves to New York City, and at the coaxing of her friend, pretends to be a model so she can spend one wild night with Malcolm.

Rock star, Malcolm Angel, tortured by a dark past, may be the poet laureate of romance, but he, like science-minded Summer, has never believed in romantic love. How could he? With his history, he doesn’t deserve to be loved.

When Summer’s honesty, kindness, and exuberance for life changes his perspective, the two discover they are in deeper than either dreamed possible. But when Malcolm discovers Summer’s been perpetuating a lie, will he forgive her? Even if forgiveness is possible, can a man immune to love teach someone else to believe in it?

Ava Orlova is just trying to fit in as an average Brooklyn teenager, but her life has been anything but average.The daughter of a missing Russian quantum physicist, Ava was once subjected to a series of ruthless military experiments—until she was rescued by Black Widow and placed under S.H.I.E.L.D. protection. Ava has always longed to reconnect with her mysterious savior, but Black Widow isn’t really the big sister type.

Until now.

When children all over Eastern Europe begin to go missing, and rumors of smuggled Red Room tech light up the dark net, Natasha suspects her old teacher has returned—and that Ava Orlova might be the only one who can stop him. To defeat the madman who threatens their future, Natasha and Ava must unravel their pasts. Only then will they discover the truth about the dark-eyed boy with an hourglass tattoo who haunts Ava’s dreams…

Uncover a new side of the Marvel Universe that will thrill loyal fans and newcomers alike, as Stohl reveals the untold story of Black Widow for the very first time.

My Review:  So before I get going a few things first, I was super excited when this book came out, that I literally bought it the day it came back… then life got in the way and I just finished it.  I am trying to get caught up on all the books I set out to read but never got around to reading.

Second, I am so excited that we are finally going to dive deeper into Natasha.  I really wish she would get her own movie or netflix series… something, but alas I don’t think we will so therefore I am going to settle for the book.

Third, this book does appear to be in the MCU, based on some of the things said all I can tell you is the book appears to take place after the first Avengers movie and before Winter Soldier… because she is still working for SHIELD… but references the events of New York and Loki, so in my opinion that is the timeline we are dealing with.  If you have another theory I would love to hear it.

This book was fantastic, before the beginning of every chapter you knew that something ominous was going to happen as she is being interviewed for her actions.  Then you find out why she is being interviewed for her actions.

The book is action packed and very well paced.  WE see so much of her personality and her lack of attachment but spoiler Natasha DOES have feelings and does get attached and tries to do the right thing, but things don’t go the way she hopes.  There is a pretty sad moment in this book and it is like man, this sucks.

I have read other reviews and I have seen some negativity regarding Ava but I liked her, so as far as that goes I felt it worked in this book.   I certainly think if you have not read this and you are a Marvel fan girl like I am (I am seriously ashamed I have not read this, I brag daily about being a Marvel fangirl) you need to read this asap.
