Synopsis:

At 900 years old, Nissa is finally ready to follow her mother’s path and become the best Fairy Godmother she can. She’s not thrilled when her first assignment turns out to be a teenage human girl with self-esteem issues, but she knows she has to start somewhere. Her assignment has dealt with bullies since her freshman year and they haven’t let up. If Nissa can’t help her regain her self-confidence her future is bleak.

To complicate matters Nissa experiences all the signs that she’s met the being fated for her. This impossibility distracts her from her purpose. After all, fairies and humans aren’t meant for each other. How can her heart believe otherwise? Can Nissa successfully complete her first assignment as a Fairy Godmother? Will the fates allow Nissa and Levi to be together? And even if they do, will Levi believe Nissa once she reveals the truth?

Character interview with Nissa:

1) What were your first thoughts right after you crossed into the human world? I was excited to get down to business. I wanted to find my guardians and learn as much as I could about my mission.

2) Tell us about how you felt when you first met Levi. Oh, Levi… My breath caught. My heart started pounding like a drum in my chest, and as my right hand began to tingle, I felt a wave of something flow through me unexpectedly. I thought he was very handsome.

3) What is the best part about being in the human world? I love all of the sights and sounds. And everything is so large!

4) What is one thing you would do differently if you could? I would have told Levi the truth about myself sooner. I hate that he experienced pain because of me.

5) What is something about you readers might be surprised to know? Before I became a Fairy Godmother, I was very good at playing hydrangea ball. I almost went pro.

Synopsis:

The story of Jack Henry and Laurelyn continues…
How do you move on when he’s every song you sing?

After Laurelyn Prescott walks away from the love of her life, she returns to Nashville to pursue the only dream she has left. Determined to find a distraction from the pain of losing Jack Henry, she immerses herself in her music. But with her old life comes old acquaintances and new expectations. When Laurelyn refuses her record producer’s outrageous demands, she finds herself without a career—until an unforeseen opportunity presents itself. From there it’s a rocket ride straight to the top where Laurelyn finds the success she’s always dreamed of. Will it be enough to bring her the happiness she so deserves, or will the absence of Jack Henry leave her wanting more?

Jack Henry McLachlan never expected to fall in love with Laurelyn Prescott—but he did. After he foolishly let her slip through his fingers, he spends three months searching for her, but their reunion doesn’t come easy. The woman he finds isn’t the same one who drifted away without a goodbye. No longer an insecure girl on an Australian adventure, this Laurelyn is a successful musician with a promising career. Her dreams are becoming a reality, and Jack is terrified his American girl won’t have a place for him in her new life. With only a month to convince her otherwise, will it be enough time to make her visualize a life beyond the glitz and glamour, a life that includes him?

Synopsis:

Laura Drake is an author.  She writes bestselling paranormal romances that continue to top the charts.  She is sharp.  She is confident.  She is in control.

And she doesn’t exist.

Samantha Jansen is the woman behind the wig, the woman most of the world doesn’t know exists.  She is shy.  She is insecure.  She is nothing like her main character or her alter ego.  She is scarred—deeply scarred—by a past she can’t let go of and a present she can’t make peace with.

Samantha’s dreams are consumed by one man, the broken hero from her books.  Mason Strait is both her wildest fantasy and her most terrifying nightmare.

When Samantha meets Alec Brand, a corporate consultant, it is as though Mason has come to life.  Alec is handsome to a fault, as elegant as he is arrogant, and more intense than any man has a right to be.

Samantha is soon sucked into a world that mirrors the fiction she writes.  Just like her main character, Daire Kirby, Samantha finds herself unable to resist the forbidden lure of Alec.  And just like Daire, she also finds that she is faced with taking a chance on a man who could either set her free or destroy her.

The scale tilts toward destruction when Samantha finds out that Alec is as much a work of fiction as Mason.  And he has scars of his own, scars that could ruin them both.

Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you’ll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren’t roaming in that direction, she’ll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

Synopsis:

After finding her sister in bed with her fiancé, 25-year old Lexie Wilkins decides to relocate to southwest Florida to start a new life and escape relationships all together. What she doesn’t expect to find are two attractive kite surfers, who both want her.

So much for Lexie’s vow for her fresh start in Florida: a no wake zone. Having two guys in her life is sure to make waves.

Eddie is the captivating bad boy, who lives next door. Daniel is Lexie’s sweet and ruggedly handsome co-worker. The differences between the two men are just as extreme as their sport…

Who will she choose?

Excerpt from Slow No Wake:

Then I heard a pounding on the front door, which I had left propped open.

“Is anyone home?” called out a male voice.

I went over to the door and opened it fully. I could feel my mouth drop open when I saw the guy standing at my threshold. He was bare-chested, wearing just swim trucks and flip flops. And, oh what a wonderful chest it was, six-packed and bronzed from the sun. The guy was about six feet tall; muscular and toned. When I could finally steal my gaze from his magnificent physique, I looked into smoldering brown eyes and my breath was momentarily stolen from my body. His dark hair was messy and damp. That’s when I noticed he also had a bit of sand on his broad shoulders. I guessed he was one of the surfer boys, as Hans called them, who lived next door.

The gorgeous guy gave me a titled half smile that showed off a sexy dimple in his cheek. The man was clearly the whole package and he definitely knew it. He carried himself like he owned the world. He could easily own any girl with the dimple alone.

Any girl, except me, of course.

It would be a very long time before I was interested in any involvement with the opposite sex. My heart was still broken into a million little pieces from my messy break-up with Jeff.

“Just move in?” Mr. Whole Package said.

“Is it that obvious?” I quipped.

“The moving truck out front kind of gave it away,” he said. He held out a hand. “I’m Eddie. I live next door.”

I stared at his hand for a second, wondering how rude it would look if I didn’t shake it. A big part of me was scared to even touch him. Finally, I just thought fuck it and grabbed his hand.

Oh, God. What a HUGE mistake.

Why hadn’t I listened to my inner, obviously much smarter voice, which warned me not to touch him? His grip was firm and his hands were rougher than I had imagined they would be; but what got me were his eyes. As he held my hand, I was captivated by the intensity of his fiery stare. I nearly drowned in the cascade of shivers that flooded my body.

Eddie had game and knew exactly how to use it. Shit.

“I’m Lexie,” I said as I quickly removed my hand from his grasp.

He arched an eyebrow. “Short for something?”

“Alexandria.”

“Pretty name.”

I smiled. “Well, I’ve got a lot of work to do.” I wanted him to leave. He was making me nervous. He was making me feel things I didn’t want to feel. A lot of things I didn’t want to feel. All the things I was trying to escape by moving to Florida.

“Need help carrying in the rest of your stuff?” he offered. It was tempting, but it also meant spending more time with him, which might put us near the danger zone.

When I moved to Florida, I decided that I would put up an invisible sign: Slow No Wake. I didn’t want any waves or any drama. I had had enough of that in Illinois. Men usually caused waves and Eddie definitely seemed like the heavy wake kind of guy. I needed him gone as quickly as possible. I had a foot in dangerous waters and I didn’t want to get swept up in the tide.

“Hans said he would give me a hand with the furniture,” I said.

Eddie leaned in very close, like he was going to tell me a secret. I could feel his breath on my neck and it made me shiver a bit. What was that I had just said about the no wake zone? Eddie was already causing a lot of waves. “I would watch out for Hans,” he whispered. “He’s kind of a perv.”

Hans did not seem like a perv to me but I hadn’t spent much time with him. “He’s old enough to be my father,” I said with a bit of skepticism in my voice.

Eddie shrugged. “Suit yourself.” He turned away from me. “But have you seen his girlfriend yet? She’s at least five years younger than us.”

“Wait,” I said.

Eddie turned around and grinned at me. “Change your mind?”

I nodded.

Eddie rested his arm on the doorframe right above me and leaned in close. He smelled like suntan oil with a hint of saltwater and sweat. “I’m happy to help you in any way I can. All you have to do is ask.”

His words were laced with so much innuendo and sexuality, I found it difficult to swallow. “Thanks,” was all I was able to mutter.

Then he turned and headed for the truck. I followed and in that moment, I felt like I would have followed him anywhere.

Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Kari meets Neil Mars. “Neil as in Armstrong and Mars…as in Bruno.” A boy who beats every vampire, werewolf, highlander fantasy Kari has ever had. But she knows can’t get close to him. Not ever. Because that would mean telling him everything. Coming clean. And Kari can’t bear the idea of changing the way Neil looks at her. Like she’s the only girl in the world. His reverence is something too precious to lose. Perhaps even at the cost of losing him.

But Kari doesn’t know why Neil calls her his ‘Angel’ and when she finds out, she realizes what love is all about. Boundless joy, unending longing and a fuckload of heartache.

Excerpts from All My Life:

“I can take care of myself,” I tell him.

His lips twitch in response. “Oh, I’m sure you can, little shrub.”

“You are warned!” I take my voice down a notch and point my ring at him, “I’ll tunnel your leathery knighthood right out of this galaxy!”

Neil suddenly halts in his tracks and pins me down with eyes. “Batman vs. Green Lantern? Batman wins. Every. Single. Time.”

“Ohmygod! So not true. In the…”

He cuts me. “One word…yellow.” I stare at him with my mouth half-open.

“‘Nuff said,” he says smugly and then tugs on my hand.

******

Maybe I’ll forget this feeling someday. Maybe it’ll just be reduced to a memory made up of a flickering gas heater, the salty dew of his skin and the love in his dark, inky eyes. This feeling of pure unadulterated joy. Of reaching a high so potent that your spirit feels like it’s soaring across the universe…and falling from that glorious peak only to find yourself enveloped in someone’s warm caring hands. When you feel like you’ve just died or been born, right at the same time.

It could be that I’ll forget this feeling someday. But I’m sure it won’t be anytime soon. Maybe when I’m a hundred and looking forward to my lunch of mashed bread. Not one single day before.

Synopsis:

When Jocelyn Weatherford is whisked away from a preparatory academy in upstate New York to live with her extended family in New Orleans, she is unprepared to encounter the dangers awaiting her. Yet even as she is thrust into an unfamiliar world of witches and  voodoo magic, the greatest threat of all may be the boy she has fallen for.

While handsome and charming, he is also a Caldwell… a member of the family the Weatherford’s have been feuding with for centuries. As their forbidden love grows it becomes the volatile spark that forever changes their world and everyone in it.

Source: Author for a fair and honest review

My Rating: 4½/5 stars

My Review:

Jocelyn Weatherford is exactly like her classmates: she is a member of a privileged family; she attends a private preparatory academy and; only sees her mother on school holidays.  For Jocelyn every day is the same: get up, go to class, do her homework, break some rules with her friends.  This is the life Jocelyn knows and is accustomed too; unfortunately, it is a complete and utter lie.

Everything, and I do mean everything, changes for Jocelyn the day she looks down and discovers a horrifying scar on her arm.  WTH??  Jocelyn is never, and I do mean never sick or hurt so the presence of such a wound is as shocking as it is painful.  Though she has never been to the nurse’s office, Jocelyn heads there in order to have the scar attended to. Next thing Jocelyn knows, she’s packing her clothes and on a plane, with the nurse, to New Orleans where she will take up residence with her extended family.  What?  She has family other than her mother??  Oh, and by the way: you are a witch, your entire extended family constitutes a long, long line of powerful witches and; your family would be the mortal enemies of the Caldwell family another long, long line of powerful witches.  Yeah, like Jocelyn is going to believe all that crap!

Some people just take a little convincing and Jocelyn’s journey to belief begins the moment she touches down in New Orleans.  She is greeted by her aunt Lizzy, mother to Jocelyn’s five(!) cousins and a surly and rather creepily intuitive maid by the name of Mabelle who hands her a shopping list of supplies she will need for her first day of school.  Unable to sleep despite her exhaustion, Jocelyn sets out to acquire her supplies and immediately runs into Jameson, arguably the most beautiful boy she has ever encountered.  After briefly introducing themselves and deducing they have similar shopping lists, the two decide to shop together as Jameson is far more familiar with the city than Jocelyn.  With the exception of a few minor missteps, being declared fated lovers by the universe (that’s a fun scene!), and discovering the boy she is interested in is none other than a crappin’ Caldwell, the day goes pretty well.

Not completely understanding the rules of the game, Jocelyn approaches Jameson on their first day of school much to everyone’s horror!  It becomes clear to Jocelyn that the whole mortal enemy thing is real and her cousins and the Caldwell’s are all kinds of serious about keeping her and Jameson separated.  Both sides begin casting spells aimed at annoying and hurting the others despite knowing their world is meant to be kept a secret from those non-magical (hee hee, Muggles!) beings around them.  Adding insult to injury or fuel to the fire (whichever you prefer), Jocelyn is placed among the Caldwell’s and completely isolated from the protection of her cousins at their weekly magical lessons.  It is at one of these lessons that everyone discovers the lengths to which Jameson is willing to go to protect Jocelyn.  From this moment forward everything in Jocelyn and Jameson’s world is irrevocably altered.

Though Jocelyn and Jameson are powerfully drawn to one another, they are hindered at every turn by their families and their family’s history with one another.  For the most part, Jocelyn and Jameson have to sneak around when they can in order to see one another.  Jocelyn is learning to tap into her own power, the very rare art of healing, and with Jameson, she can enhance and amplify her power thus allowing her to heal more people and for longer periods of time.  One night Jameson takes Jocelyn to a remote village where her skills are put to the test and she comes face-to-face with the dark side of the world she now occupies.  She also discovers her powers may run deeper than anyone initially suspected.

After the night on the bayou Jocelyn and Jameson’s story begins to take so many twists and turns that it will keep you turning pages like a fiend.  There are interactions with one another both negative and positive, interactions with their respective families both positive and negative, and a near-constant stream of secret-revealing. (OH!  I love secret-revealing!)  Both try to hold on for the ride as best they can but there is a long and powerful history meant to keep them apart.  That history is one of the most interesting secrets revealed and is a strong enough bit of information that it even draws Jocelyn’s mother to town!  Now she is a mighty and powerful surprise and what she has to tell everyone will knock your socks off!!

The Bottom Line: Holy balls this book is good and there are several things that contribute to this outburst.  Foremost on the list of awesome are the characters: Jocelyn and Jameson are both solid and compassionate characters who are drawn into a world of madness, lies, witchcraft, and voodoo.  They are torn between their attraction to one another and their loyalties to their respective families.  Backing these two are a whole slew of other characters I sincerely hope get more press time in future installments of the series; there are some wicked fun personalities among the Caldwell’s and the Weatherford’s and they need to be allowed to come out and play 🙂

The plot line also makes me squeak a little: though I like the idea of fated lovers I like it a whole hell of a lot more that Faulty has kept this aspect of the plot subdued for the time being.  I know Jocelyn and Jameson are meant to be together and eventually they will be but Falter has wisely chosen to allow these two time to get to know one another rather than falling into the now way over-used insta-love trap.  By doing this, Falter has also allowed the deeper and richer plot line of the on-going (or is it?) Caldwell/Weatherford feud to take center stage.  This is how it should be!!  It is made clear in several instances how long this feud has been raging and the toll it has taken on both families so it therefore makes sense that Falter should (and does!) dedicate the bulk of the book to this topic.  Appropriately, Jocelyn and Jameson are woven into and not allowed to overshadow the larger plot line.  Well done Laury Falter, well done.

Essentially what you get with Residue is a well-written and well-planned novel that reads smoothly and easily from cover to cover.  I am comfortable recommending this title to all YA+ readers.
