Review: Entice

Entice
Carrie Jones


Fans of the Twilight saga will find plenty of “loves” in this new addition to the paranormal romance genre. Entice is the third book in Carrie Jones’s series. In this book, Zara, the daring heroine, is out to rescue the love-of-her-life werewolf boyfriend, Nick, from Valhalla. (Yes, the same Valhalla from Norse mythology!) During the second book in the series, Captivate, Zara decides to allow the young and gorgeous pixie king Ansley to turn her into a pixie so that she could start her journey to rescue Nick. Ansley seems to be very considerate and understanding of Zara’s need to rescue Nick. He even vows to help her rescue “her wolf.” Zara’s previous experience with pixies has been far from kittens-and-roses innocence, but she willingly allies herself with the young pixie king. Then people close to her start dying. Suddenly, Zara and Ansley find themselves the target of treachery from the pixie world. Unfortunately, neither of them are able to figure out exactly who is responsible for trying to kill them. Ultimately, Zara makes it to Valhalla and has to battle the evil pixie king, Frank, who was responsible for sending Nick to the hall of fallen warriors in the second book. While battling Frank is difficult for the pacifist Zara, it is not her only problem. Zara has to constantly struggle with balancing her friends, family, and her new pixie king.

Jones includes plot twists and danger at every page turn in her third novel. Her writing style is simple and insightful, at least where the main characters are concerned. Capturing the zeal and intensity of teenage romances seems to be one of Jones’s writing strengths. The passion between Nick and Zara is sizzling, and would make Edward and Bella envious. But Nick and Zara aren’t the only characters with sparks. Readers can feel the embers between Zara and Ansley start to ignite, but Jones keeps us waiting to see what will happen between these two characters.

The ending of Entice leaves Zara with many decisions to make, and a secret that could expose Ansley for the type of pixie he really is—friend or foe. The door is wide open for a fourth novel.

This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office.

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
