New Author Alert!!

So we would like to introduce you to a  new author that shows tremendous promise. He's already made it into one of our favorite people because like some he's sarcastic and funny like us! I bet your wondering who we are talking about right? Well you should be! His name is David James! His first book LIght of the Moon, comes out Nov. 6th and it's one of the books we had up for grabs in our contest! We are so excited to read it and hope you are too. We would love to discuss it with you guys, that's the best thing about being readers in bloggers right? So here's the cover and the blurb! Get excited because it's pretty awesome and go add David on Twitter @DJamesAuthor 

"One night long ago, a constellation disappeared and fell from the sky in the form of a boy...
Secrets are being kept in the sleepy town of Lakewood Hollow, Colorado. Nothing but pools of blood and dripping words are left where bodies once were, and no one but Calum Wade seems to be worried. Life unfolds in shades of red for Calum, until a mysterious girl named Kate Black enrolls at his school and everything changes. Suddenly a dangerous world of dream demons, elemental enchanters, and blood witches unfurls before Calum. He learns that the stars have forever held his destiny, and that the constellations above are much more than what they seem. As Kate and Calum sink deep into a paranormal war, they realize that an ancient prophecy might hold the answers they seek. But life is not so easy for Calum, and he can feel his heart beat faster whenever Kate is close. Worse, Kate's blood holds a dark secret even more dangerous than the war between the demons and enchanters. Soon the two find that there are worse things than loving someone you shouldn't. For Calum and Kate, even love and the fiery power of stars may not be enough to break a curse as dark as the blood that binds their destiny.
A romantic story of true love and dark curses, LIGHT OF THE MOON will leave you breathless."

Devastated by a terrible loss, Chase is trying to balance the life he’s been left with, a family he’s still getting to know, and power he never thought he’d have. He doesn’t understand why the Goddess has named him the Protector and granted him two gifts: the Mark, a tattoo that now covers his back, and the ring. But between getting interrogated by the Circle and psychic attacks from Riley, the Mark is the least of his concern. There’s a demon inside Rayna that’s fighting to be released, and it’s not her inner witch. It’s something else–a monster threatening to tear her apart.

As Chase struggles to control his magic, his enemies are closing in. Everyone has staked a claim on his ring, and destroying it may be his only chance to stop Riley. But Chase must decide if stopping him is worth risking the lives of everyone he cares about, or if protecting the ring will be enough to save his world.

So I am completely blown away. I'm already having withdrawals, I need to know what happens next!! Ok now that I got that out of my system, I can be level headed. Well as level headed as I get anyways. So this book is beyond what I expected. I'm not usually a fan of the second book no matter whose writing it. I've found the second book to be filled with all the "bad" things. You know the break-ups, the let downs, the over all disappointment.  I can tell you  Matt has proven my theory wrong. I absolutely loved this book more than the first one. 

So a little recap. Chase is a hunter who was EXILED from the only life he's ever known to being hunted by underworlders. He meets Rayna, a half-breed,  and Marcus, a rougue hunter, when they save his life from a bunch of vampires. The life he thought he knew has become a total lie. Joining Marcus and Rayna, Tessa, Chase's mom, they start down a path that ends in heartbreak. By Chase saving Rayna, Tessa dies at the hand of Riley. Riley is Chase's father who is delusional enough to want to bring forth Ithreal.

I wish I could say there was a break for Chase to breath, but that would be a lie. One of the things I love most about Chase is his determination. No matter how much is thrown at him he keeps going. He finally received his element, not one but two, then to be gifted by the Goddess to be also the Protector. It's a lot to take in for anyone. Factoring in the new feelings he's developing for Rayna, it's enough to drive anyone mad. Yet he doesn't falter under pressure, he takes it with stride. Helping Rayna with her shift, forgiving Marcus, standing by Willy, all while trying to figure out what it means to be the "Protector" and figuring out a way to stop Riley in the process. 

Let me take a minute to say how awesome Willy is. I mean in Exiled he was a scared little half-breed, who I found adorable by the way, to be a bad ass half-breed in Shift. Willy goes through some changes as well, but the best one is he finally get's the confidence he was lacking. So kudos to Willy!

Having to face some tough dedecisions, traveling to other worlds, dealing with purbloods, and a certain vampire with alternatives, the gang goes on a search for Ithreal's dagger. The only advantage they had is taken away by one of the Dark Brother's. Riley is starting the war with the werewolves and the weretigers. Can Chase unite the two groups of shifter's before it's to late and Riley wins? Well your going to have to read the book to see what happens. I will say that Chase and Rayna make some progress. :)

There is so much action in this book that it will have you at the edge of your seat and will totally leave you wanting more. I cannot wait for Release to be released so I can continue the journey Chase and his group is on.


Book 2... SHIFT..... Is a winner! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time!! Does Chase ever catch a break, no not yet. And Rayna's shift is absolutely amazing! I loved how Matt made you feel all of Chase's emotions. There were times when I was pissed off even! 
I must say for a while I liked Vincent, thought he was cool. Well not anymore. He's an ass.
Willy..... Love that little guy!! And wow the big changes he goes through! 
Tikki.... What's not to love? 
Marcus, awww he's sensitive! He's a great guy! 
Totally love Chief! A wise one that man! 
I must say this was a winner book for me. Chase grows and gains so much in this book. He learns about himself and helps Rayna learn about herself too. There's even a few fun kisses in there. Brought out my happy clappy hands!! 
Can't wait for Release!!! I'm sure it will be another winner!

COVER REVEAL-Courtney Cole

Ok so I believe this is going to be our second cover reveal for Courtney Cole and OMG we are so excited. Courtney is a writing machine and she is knocking out books left and right and that makes us, as readers so excited! Ok so we at Crazy Book Chicks are so thrilled that we decided to do yet another giveaway, I know Crazy right!! But this is us we are the CRAZY book chicks :).... so with that we decided to do a giveaway  of an Ebook of Dante's Girl, the first book in the Paradise Diaries. So get excited, we might end up doing a giveaway for this book as well but you'll have to wait and see!

So without further ado we now would like to introduce you to the awesome cover for Courtney Cole's new book and it's blurb....it releases December 1, 2012!!

My name is Mia Giannis.
I am seventeen years old.
I live in Valese, Caberra.

This has become my mantra and my lifeline, having recently lost my memory due to a scary natural disaster.

Yeah. I have amnesia. Messed up, right?

You don't know the half of it.

Not remembering anything has turned my world upside down. My parents try their hardest to “remind” me of who I was, but it doesn't feel right. Or, if what they're saying is true and that really was me, I'm not sure I like that person very much.

And then there’s my love life. Apparently, Gavin Ariastasis is my oldest and best friend in the world. Also, apparently, we’ve never dated. But now, noticing him for what feels like the first time, he’s making my heart do somersaults. He knows me inside and out—the real me. Plus, he’s sexy and charming as hell. Sounds perfect, right?

But then... there’s the new guy. Quinn McKeyen – tall, gorgeous and deliciously American. His mischievous grin and slow Midwestern drawl turn my insides to mush in two seconds flat making me question who I really am and what I really want.

Seriously. What am I supposed to do with all that?! I feel torn between them, but I barely even know who I am, let alone what I want.

I just hope my indecisive heart will clue me in. And sooner rather than later…before I lose what little of my mind that I have left.

Chase Williams is a demon hunter in the Circle, or at least he was supposed to be. On his fifteenth birthday, Chase stepped up to the altar to claim his elemental power, but it never came. Elemental magic is passed down to a hunter through the bloodline, but on Chase's birthday, the bloodline stopped.

Exiled without the Circle's protection, Chase has spent two years trying to survive a world riddled with half-demons and magic. When he has a run in with a frightened and seemingly innocent demon, he learns the Circle's agenda has changed: the Circle plans to unlock a portal and unleash pure-blood demons into the world.

Vowing to stop them, and knowing he can't do it alone, Chase forms a reluctant alliance with Rayna - a sexy witch with an attitude and a secret. In their attempt to stop them however, Chase and Rayna find themselves in the middle of the Circle's plan, leaving one of them to decide what their friendship is worth, and the other's life depending on it.

So I have to say this book really surprised me. I’m not use to reading books written by a male and I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first. It took me a little while to get through the book and it’s not because I didn’t like it because I totally loved it! It’s amazingly written, M.R. Merrick is a complete genius I swear. So you’re probably wondering why it took me some time to get through it right? Well if you noticed the books I usually read are well, love stories. Exiled is packed with magic, vampires, demons, half-demons, and hunters, not to mention some awesome action scenes. So you can see why it took me some time to get through it, it’s definitely a deep book and once I set time aside to actually dive in it captivated me until I finished it!

So Chase, he’s a hunter who is living in the shadow of his father Riley Williams. Riley is famous amongst the Circle and the Underworlders as the fiercest fighter. On the day that Chase goes to the ceremony to see what elemental power he will have, something happens that leads to Chase and his mom Tessa being Exiled from the circle. Now they are living on their own and every time Chase is trying to get home, demons or vampires attack him, though he doesn’t have a power he can definitely kick some ace.  Totally hot I might add!Well one night he runs into Rayna, and the life he thought he knew is forever changed.

Rayna is this half-demon half-hunter that’s also a witch, totally unheard of. She is also exiled, not in the sense as Chase but close to it. You see she kills her kind, well the bad ones anyways, so she doesn’t fit in with the Underworlders, and she looks too much like a demon to fit in with the hunters. Marcus is a hunter whose taken Rayna under his wing and helps her develop her powers and her element. When they stumble upon Chase in an alley, things begin to shift.

Though there is no defined love story you can’t help but see the attraction between Chase and Rayna, it leaves me hope for the books to come. Will Chase and Rayna be more important than they realize? Will Chase be able to set aside all of the things he was taught to be wrong? Where will this path he takes leave him and just how does Rayna’s uniqueness fight into this equation? You’ll have to find out for yourself!


I read this book QUITE a while ago and think that Matt is an awesome writer.  I am used to all the love stories or the Paranormal books with love stories in them so the first time I read Exiled I kept reading waiting for that inevitable AWWWWW. Well NOT quite but what I got was an awesome, action packed story! You will see Dani's reaction above, so I will give you a quick run down.

Chase..... well he and his mom have been Exiled (name of book) From the Circle of Hunters because Chase came up with no powers.  He and his mom were cast out and have been living on their own.  Chase has been fighting "underworlders" on his own. They seem to find him wherever he goes.  This is where he runs into Rayna and Marcus.  I am not going to go to explain too much because you really need to read this.  How do they all help each other? 
What Powers DOES Chase develop?  What does this mean for him?

The cast of characters in this book are amazing, you find yourself laughing or wondering what they all look like! I suggest you dive into this world that M.R. Merrick created. You won't be sorry! 


You can buy Exiled on Amazon HERE  and on B&NHERE

Cover Reveal-Wendy Higgins

Hey guys Dani here, Christina hasn't read Sweet Evil yet, but I absolutely loved it, so much so that I actually entered the contest to design the cover. Well I didn't win the contest sadly but I am getting the opportunity to help reveal the long waited cover to the next book in the trilogy!! So exciting right!! I cannot wait to read this book!! Ok so enough of my chit chat here is the amazing cover and it's blurb, a little about Wendy Higgins and some links!! Enjoy!!

Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a claim. She’d been naive about a lot of things. Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Release Date April 30, 2013

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection.

Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom's dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it's what he wants too.

Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their

pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.

Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.

Mature content: language, drug references and sexual situations.
So Nyrae Dawn kicks some major ace! Like seriously I love her work, she always seems to amaze me and keep me on my toes. Just when you think you cant possibly love someones work any more than you already do, you go and read another book and sigh and fall in love all over again.

Cheyenne has her own set of issues, but the way the author writes doesn't make it seem far fetched or fake. That's one of the things I love most about Nyrae's work, she uses real issues, things that are going on in real people's lives which makes the character's more real. Cheyenne is an amazing female character who breaks the bounds in which we are accustomed to. Yes, she was a dancer in high school, yes she has mommy issues, yes she puts up the front that she is tough, but don't we all? Her front works pretty well up until she meets Colt.

Colt has his issues as well and the last thing he is looking for is a relationship, but sometimes when your least expecting something that's when it finds you. Colt has this idea that he's going to be just like his father, so why fight the inevitable? His mothers really sick and he's put in a situation that he doesn't see any other way, until Cheyenne enters the picture. They play this Charade, but the lines are blurring and being able to tell what's real and what's a charade is starting to surface.

I'm not one for spoilers so I think that's a good stopping point, just know I recommend an extended period of time because you're not going to want to put this book down, it's an attention grabber from the first page! I absolutely love how Nyrae can capture the male POV, don't get me wrong I love her female POV as well, but I can read and re read all her male POVs over and over again and never get tired of them!

I expected greatness when I saw this book was out because it was it was written by Nyrae Dawn.  I got what I expected. Cheyenne is a girl who has not had the easiest up bringing.  Her mom left her at an early age.  Now she has moved to college to follow her boyfriend who is already there.  Only to find that he is in the act of cheating on her.  His reasoning is So Stupid.  Cheyenne decides to enlist the help of Colt, a bad boy, to make Greg jealous. 

Colt is mean and tough.... but that is only to cover that he is being ripped apart from his mom dying of Cancer.  He goes along with Cheyenne's "Charade" because she's cute and he needs the money. 
Little do these two know that they really need each other!  I loved this story!  Will Colt's and Cheyenne's Charade lead to a deeper connection?  Will they help each other feel and lift the masks off the Charade they both have been playing?  You need to read this beautiful story to find out! I love Nyrae's characters so much that I always want to know how they are later in life!  Hint Hint Nyrae! ;)

So we will stop blabbing and go a head and show you the amazing cover and blurb! The book releases  November 19, 2012 so go like it on goodreads HERE

Hale Simmons dreams of climbing out of her impoverished life, going to college, and getting herself a titanium crash helmet, so she can eventually bust through the Plexiglas ceiling of her crappy life.  But for now, she’s just a 17-year-old girl with a flimsy hope, barely getting by with her alcoholic father, Jerry.
But for Hale, ‘crappy’ suddenly takes a nosedive, when Jerry becomes the sole witness to a horrible accident.  It is an event which means to effect everyone, especially Hale, who wasn’t even involved.
            While the depth of the accident has just begun to unfold, Otto Maree, a prominent business man and old family friend, stands to lose everything because of it.  Otto is desperate for Hale’s father to stay quiet about what occurred the night the two men met for a drink.  Out of mutual moments of desperation, the two fathers forge a deal.  Jerry is desperate to gain financial stability for both himself and Hale, and Otto Maree is more than willing to pay to keep his secret just that.
            But deals like this need to be made of the strongest vows and bound with the most faithful of loyalties.  Otto proposes a marriage between Hale and his playboy-son, Oscar, in order to assure that the secret remains ‘in the family’.  The mystery surrounding the accident continues to grow and Hale struggles against her own mysterious feelings that begin to develop for Oscar, who turns out to less of a playboy, but just as fiercely loyal and dedicated as his father.  
As the pressures around her continues to escalate, Hale realizes that she’s got to decide if this arranged marriage is really just a big mistake or an amazing twist of fate, that has been waiting around for this particular accident to happen.
