Bound by Forever by Samantha Young

Niamh Farren has been burdened by knowledge for most of her life. As one of seven fae children born into the human world with the ability to open the gate to Faerie, Niamh’s mission is to guide her fae brethren to do what’s right. Because Niamh has seen what will happen to the human world if she does not protect the gate. Throughout the years, she’s traveled the world with her brother Ronan, using her psychic visions to find the fae-borne and convince them to stay on the path that will keep the gate from opening. She has sacrificed much … but when she loses her brother to the mission, Niamh begins to lose herself.

For nearly one hundred and fifty years, werewolf Kiyo has wandered the planet as a lost soul. Cursed with immortality, he spends his awful eternity as a mercenary for hire. When the powerful Fionn Mór confides the truth about the existence of Faerie and hires Kiyo to protect one of the fae-borne, he accepts the challenge out of boredom, not heroism. Yet Niamh is unexpected in every way the werewolf can possibly imagine.

Guarding Niamh from her enemies is nowhere near as challenging as protecting the fae woman from herself. If Kiyo is to succeed, he must help Niamh find herself again, and not just for her sake. Ignoring the fierce connection between them may no longer be an option. A new enemy is rising and threatening to rip open the gate between worlds. To remind Niamh of who she really is, Kiyo must make the choice to lower his defenses and give into their bond. Or safeguard his own heart … and in doing so lead the human world to the brink of war.

I absolutely love this series! 

I used to love paranormal romance a good few years back, but it kind of fell off for a while.
When I saw Samantha Young was publishing an adult paranormal romance series I couldn’t wait to delve in.  And I’ve been hooked since book 1.  It's really made me fall back in love with paranormal romance.
I couldn’t wait for the third installment and it was as amazing as I hoped.
Psychic faerie meets cynical immortal werewolf- it’s a romance waiting to happen.
I’d really recommend reading this series in order as characters from the previous books do pop up and context would help.
The romance between  Niamh and Kiyo was beautifully built up and I found myself unable to put the book down, desperate to see them figure out they were meant for each other.
Niamh is a sweet character that has been tortured by losing someone close to her, but shes's tried to help her fellow fae, and Kiyo has been hired to look out for her, and he's a delightfully grumpy werewolf.
Over all I loved the romance between them and I cannot wait for the next book. I feel a lot has now been set up for the next book in the series and I need it in my hands.
The series is a must read! 
5/5 stars!

Waiting On Wednesday: A Rogue of One's Own by Evie Dunmore

Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week the book I'm waiting to be released is A Rogue of One's Own by Evie Dunmore.  I really enjoyed the first book this regency series last year and can't wait to see what else this author delivers.  
Released September 1st
A lady must have money and an army of her own if she is to win a revolution - but first, she must pit her wits against the wiles of an irresistible rogue bent on wrecking her plans...and her heart.

Lady Lucie is fuming. She and her band of Oxford suffragists have finally scraped together enough capital to control one of London’s major publishing houses, with one purpose: to use it in a coup against Parliament. But who could have predicted that the one person standing between her and success is her old nemesis, Lord Ballentine? Or that he would be willing to hand over the reins for an outrageous price—a night in her bed.

Lucie tempts Tristan like no other woman, burning him up with her fierceness and determination every time they clash. But as their battle of wills and words fans the flames of long-smouldering devotion, the silver-tongued seducer runs the risk of becoming caught in his own snare.

As Lucie tries to out-manoeuvre Tristan in the boardroom and the bedchamber, she soon discovers there’s truth in what the poets say: all is fair in love and war…

Waiting on Wednesday: Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer

Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week the book I'm waiting to be released is Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer, the 5th book in the Twilight series.  I really really loved the Twilight series 12 years ago- it sparked my love of YA and was what really got me started with book blogging so I feel like I owe the series a lot.  A good few years ago I would have been super hyped for this book- I am still excited to finally get the story of Twilight from Edward's perspective but can't help but wish we'd had it earlier.
Released 4th August.
When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella’s side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward’s version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.

This unforgettable tale as told through Edward’s eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting beautiful, mysterious Bella is both the most intriguing and unnerving event he has experienced in his long life as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward’s past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he let himself fall in love with Bella when he knows that he is endangering her life?

In Midnight Sun, Stephenie Meyer transports us back to a world that has captivated millions of readers and, drawing on the classic myth of Hades and Persephone, brings us an epic novel about the profound pleasures and devastating consequences of immortal love.

Waiting On Wednesday: Daring and the Duke by Sarah MacLean

Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week the book I'm waiting to be released is Daring and the Duchess by Sarah MacLean, the 3rd book in her Bareknuckle Bastards series.  I really love this regency series and can't wait for this one.  
Released 30th June.
49368714New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean returns with the much-anticipated final book in her Bareknuckle Bastards series, featuring a scoundrel duke and the powerful woman who brings him to his knees.

Grace Condry has spent a lifetime running from her past. Betrayed as a child by her only love and raised on the streets, she now hides in plain sight as queen of London’s darkest corners. Grace has a sharp mind and a powerful right hook and has never met an enemy she could not best, until the man she once loved returns.

Single-minded and ruthless, Ewan, Duke of Marwick, has spent a decade searching for the woman he never stopped loving. A long-ago gamble may have lost her forever, but Ewan will go to any lengths to win Grace back… and make her his duchess.

Reconciliation is the last thing Grace desires. Unable to forgive the past, she vows to take her revenge. But revenge requires keeping Ewan close, and soon her enemy seems to be something else altogether—something she can’t resist, even as he threatens the world she's built, the life she's claimed…and the heart she swore he'd never steal again.
