Concealed in Death:   
In a decrepit, long-empty New York building, Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s husband begins the demolition process by swinging a sledgehammer into a wall. When the dust clears, there are two skeletons wrapped in plastic behind it. He summons his wife immediately—and by the time she’s done with the crime scene, there are twelve murders to be solved.

The place once housed a makeshift shelter for troubled teenagers, back in the mid-2040s, and Eve tracks down the people who ran it. Between their recollections and the work of the force’s new forensic anthropologist, Eve begins to put names and faces to the remains. They are all young girls. A tattooed tough girl who dealt in illegal drugs. The runaway daughter of a pair of well-to-do doctors. They all had their stories. And they all lost their chance for a better life.

Then Eve discovers a connection between the victims and someone she knows. And she grows even more determined to reveal the secrets of the place that was called The Sanctuary—and the evil concealed in one human heart.

Aku lumayan semangat dan nggak sabaran nerusin cerita Eve Dallas dan Roarke (a.k.a RED dalam kamus pribadiku XD)
Sejak Thankless in Death, aku sudah dag-dig-dug, terutama karena ada teaser di bagian belakang buku. Awww, it makes me more nervous #wtf

Be With Me:   
Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not…

Aaaah, akhirnya buku kedua keluar juga. Dan sekarang, aku tinggal menanti buku ketiga Stay With Me, atau mungkin harap-harap cemas menunggu kalau POV Jase bakal dibikinin buku kayak POV Cameron #posisiberdoa

Review: Kaleb

Judul : Kaleb
Seri : Alluring Indulgences #1
Author : Nicole Edwards
Edisi : Kindle (Januari 2013)
Bahasa: Inggris
Genre : Adult, Erotica, Contemporary Romance
Average Rating : 4.09 (per 24 Februari 2014)

Note : Review ini masuk dalam What's In A Name RC, New Author RC, Lucky No. 14 Kategori Not My Cup of Tea, Books in English 2014

Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty nine, her libido decides to ramp into high gear and the only thing she can focus on is the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door who is definitely not a boy anymore?

The only problem is that Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember. Not to mention, Kaleb and his brothers are working on buying Stranford land to build a new resort, and she’s more than a little hesitant about his intentions.

Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. That doesn’t explain why Kaleb is hell bent on having her – in as many ways as possible.

Kaleb finds himself in a precarious situation. His brothers have nominated him to pursue Zoey’s father about purchasing the land needed to get their new resort off the ground. Finding out that Carl Stranford is on the brink of foreclosure and Zoey might just lose her house and the land, Kaleb now has to convince her to put aside her pride and let him help her.

It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends with benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?

Warning: This book contains sexual encounters and graphic language that some readers may find objectionable, including, but not limited to m/f/m encounters, anal sex, exhibitionism, and voyeurism. Consider yourself warned! Contains graphic material that is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

“The man had somehow figured out how to rock her world in every way imaginable, all the while, Zoey knew she was falling way too fast for this man. Way too fast.” -Zoey Stranford, Ch. 15
A little warning: buku ini tidak sepolos kovernya, jadi untuk yang agak keberatan dengan genre erotika berat (karena disini ada adegan M/F/M), tidak direkomendasikan.

Awalnya agak gugup waktu memulai buku ini, bahkan dengan sparkling review yang ada sekalipun. Dan konyolnya, sebelum baca, aku nggak terlalu memperhatikan daftar genre yang tercantum di samping blurb di Goodreads. Semuanya dimulai dengan begitu innocent, begitu biasa, hingga kemudian...

Review: Hearts at Stake

Judul : Hearts at Stake (Note: ada juga yang menyebutkan judul My Love Lies Bleeding. Keduanya buku yang sama)
Seri : Drake Chronicles #1
Author : Alyxandra Harvey
ISBN : 0802720749 (ISBN13: 9780802720740)
Edisi : Paperback (Desember 2009)
Penerbit : Walker Children
Bahasa: Inggris
Genre : Young Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Romance, Vampire
Average Rating : 4.04 (per 22 Februari 2014)
Tanggal Dibaca : 26 Januari 2014
Note : Review ini masuk dalam Vampire RC, Young Adult RC, Lucky No. 14 Kategori It's Been There Forever, dan Books in English RC

Hearts at Stake:   
On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.

Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart.

Even fans of the genre who’ve seen it all will find a fresh read with kick-butt characters and family dynamics that ring true for all brothers and sisters—vampire or otherwise.

Aslinya aku baca ini, pertamaa banget itu pas tahun 2010-an. Tapi nggak tuntas bacanya karena saat itu aku belum begitu mahir dalam urusan baca buku Inggris. Awalnya sih, aku ketemu sama kelompok roleplayer yang mendedikasikan diri untuk menghidupkan dunia Drake Chronicles. Karena penasaran, aku ngobrol deh sama tokoh Lucy Hamilton dan Solange Drake (tentu saja saat itu aku pake persona lain, Claire siapa gitu hehe). Mereka (sepertinya) mendapatkan izin dari si penulis Alyxandra Harvey, tapi aku sendiri juga udah lupa. Seingatku selain Drake Chronicles, ada juga kelompok untuk Vampire Academy dan House of Night. Anyway, aku nggak tahu apa grup mereka masih ada, kayaknya sih masih aktif, soalnya yang VA masih aktif dan aku sering diberi undangan untuk bergabung.

Trust in Me:   
It's Wait for You as you've never seen it. Trust in Me lets you in on Cam's side of the #1 New York Times bestselling story.

Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life--literally--he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam's not ready to give up. He can't get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head.

Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery's life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?
"--and I had no idea why, but seeing her... well, it was like seeing the sun after days of rain." -Cameron Hamilton, Ch. 19

"The truth was, if I was perfect, it was only because of her. It would only ever be because of her." -Cameron Hamilton, Ch. 28
Jangan lupa baca Wait For You yaa :)

Seperti Beautiful Disaster dan Walking Disaster, Wait For You ini punya dua buku dengan satu cerita yang sama tapi dari POV berbeda. Oke, aku belum baca Walking Disaster (POV Travis) tapi katanya sih ceritanya ya cerita Beautiful Disaster, tapi dari sisi Travis. Di Trust in Me, yang notabene berlabel novella, Wait For You yang diceritakan dalam POV Avery sekarang ditulis dari sisi kepala Cameron Hamilton.

One night, desperate for money to support her grandfather, Jessy Sparhawk places the bet that will change her life forever. Just as she's collecting her winnings, a man stumbles through the crowd, a knife protruding from his back, and crashes into her, pinning her to the table.

Hired to investigate the murder, private detective Dillon Wolf finds himself fascinated by the gorgeous redhead who'd been trapped beneath the victim--and by the single word the dying man had whispered in her ear. Indigo.

One murder leads to another as Dillon and Jessy realize that the nightmare is only just beginning--and that the dead still have a hand left to play.

Mungkin ada yang heran aku langsung lompat ke buku delapan, jadi aku mau cerita dikit mengenai sedikit latar belakang seri ini, terutama siapakah Adam Harrison. Aku udah pernah baca buku pertama dari seri Harrison Investigations ini. Judulnya Haunted, menceritakan Darcy Tremayne dan Matt Stone. Eniwei, Darcy adalah sahabat Josh, anak Adam Harrison. Saat mereka pergi ke pesta dansa senior, Josh meninggal karena kecelakaan, dan mewariskan kemampuan psychic-nya pada Darcy. Darcy jadi bisa melihat hantu, dan Josh jadi semacam pembimbing Darcy. Sayangnya, Adam tidak bisa melihat Josh, dan akhirnya membentuk agensi kecil dimana anggotanya punya sensitivitas terhadap hal-hal paranormal. Agensi ini cukup rahasia dan tidak terlalu dibesar-besarkan, tapi lumayan terkenal.

Phantom Evil:   
A secret government unit, a group of renegade paranormal investigators--and a murder no one else can crack

Though haunted by the recent deaths of two teammates, Jackson Crow knows that the living commit the most heinous crimes.

A police officer utilizing her paranormal intuition, Angela Hawkins already has her hands full of mystery and bloodshed.

But one assignment calls to them too strongly to resist. In a historic mansion in New Orleans's French Quarter, a senator's wife falls to her death. Most think she jumped; some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits inhabiting the house:once the site of a serial killer's grisly work.

In this seemingly unsolvable case, only one thing is certain: whether supernatural or all too human, crimes of passion will cast Jackson and Angela into danger of losing their lives…and their immortal souls.

Buku ini adalah buku pertama dari delapan buku Krewe Of Hunters. Di sini, Adam Harrison baru aja secara resmi membentuk kru federal. Kalau sebelumnya Harrison Investigation kan bukan agensi federal, sekarang Krewe ini masuk ke dalam jajaran unit federal dan menerima pelatihan khusus sebagai agen federal serta investigator resmi. Orang pertama yang diajak Adam untuk memimpin unitnya ini adalah Jackson Crow, mantan agen FBI di unit Behavioral Science. Namanya juga unit Adam Harrison, Adam cukup terkenal karena sering menangani kasus-kasus aneh berbau mistis dan paranormal. Jackson, meskipun dia sebagian berdarah Native-America, agak skeptis kalo masalah paranormal. Jackson sendiri masih agak terguncang karena beberapa anggota timnya tewas saat mereka sedang mengejar seorang pembunuh berantai. Jackson menerima ajakan Adam dan berangkat ke New Orleans, tempat dia akan bertemu dengan anggota tim yang lain, serta tempat dimana sebuah kecelakaan/pembunuhan terjadi.

26-year old Gabriel Vincent is a badass hero. Or he used to be, anyway. As an ex-Army Ranger, Gabe never thought he needed anyone. But after one horrible night in Afghanistan scars him in a way that he can't get past, he needs someone who can help him heal...even if he doesn't realize it.

25-year old Madison Hill doesn't need anybody...or so she thinks. She grew up watching her parents' messed-up abusive relationship and she knows there's no way in hell that she's ever letting that happen to her.

They don't know it in the beginning, but Gabriel and Madison will soon develop a weakness: Each other.

But Gabriel's got a secret, a hidden monster that he's afraid Maddy could never overcome... And Maddy's got issues that she's afraid Gabe will never understand. They quickly realize that they need each other to be whole, but at the same time they know that they've got demons to fight.

And the problem with demons is that they never die quietly.

"But the world isn't always black and white. There's a million of different shades of gray. I doubt that's something you've had to deal with the Rangers. I'm sure everything is either right or wrong for you. But for normal people, there's a whole lot of space between the two." Madison Hill, Ch. 13

Ini adalah buku kedua dari Beautifully Broken. If You Leave menuturkan cerita Madison Hill, kakak Mila. Di buku pertama, Maddy ini kan mengelola restoran keluarga Hill, The Hill, setelah kematian kedua orangtuanya. Selain itu, di If You Leave, ceritanya Mila dan Pax sedang menantikan kelahiran anak pertama mereka.

To make a relationship last. LOVE isn't all you need

You need to be going to the same direction at the same speed, too

They say your first love will always hold that one special place in your heart, I always thought that was bullshit. Until I met Jason, again. I didn't even realize that I still had that special place reserved until he came and claimed it. -Filia Graciel, Bab 4
Yang pertama mau aku sebutkan: kovernya baguuus! Mengingatkan pada salah satu buku Andrea Hirata (aku lupa judulnya, Bulan sesuatu gitu). Layoutnya sangat menarik, eye catching banget. Ada dua bookmarks di buku ini dan kalau digabung siluet cowok dan ceweknya bakalan saling membelakangi. Desainnya yang unik aja udah membuat aku ngiler.

Master Post: Books in English Reading Challenge

Nambah RC lagi~~

Tahun lalu RC ini aku gagal total, wkwk. Setelah pada bulan-bulan pertama aku getol update, eh ternyata kemudian aku nggak sempet-sempet mulu.

Tahun ini aku mau nyoba lagi, RC yang sama dengan host keren yang sama, Mbak Peni Astiti dari Ketimbun Buku. Berhubung semua RC bisa dikombinasikan, aku makin hepi deh. Aku sendiri lagi on progress enam RC (What's In A Name, New Authors, Lucky No. 14, Young Adult RC, Vampire Challenge, dan Shifter Challenge). Kalau nambah berarti tujuh :D

Memang harus aku akuin sendiri, kalau buku yang aku baca kebanyakan berbahasa Inggris. Ini juga karena serial-serial yang aku ikutin semuanya berasal dari penulis luar. Bukan berarti aku nggak nasionalis, tapi ini juga karena salah satu sepupuku juga hobi baca buku luar seperti aku, jadi kita biasa barengan, hihi. Makanya, begitu aku lihat di blog Mbak Ren kalau Books in English ini diadakan lagi, aku bersemangat banget.

Eniwei, ini dia tingkatan atau level tantangan ini:

  1. Elementary Class : di level ini kamu harus baca 6-12 buku atau rata-rata 1 buku berbahasa Inggris per bulan.
  2. Intermediate Class : 13-24 buku
  3. Advance Class : >24 buku
Aku sendiri menargetkan Advance Class, alias lebih dari dua buku per bulan rata-rata. Ada aturannya juga nih (dikutip dan diterjemahkan bebas dari Master Post RC Mbak Peni)

Rules of RC:   
1. It requires you to have a book blog. If you don't have any, please make your own book blog, because it has an issue with rules number 3.
2. Make sure that you're Indonesian who lives in Indonesian or if you're studying abroad, make sure that you have Indonesian mailing address.
3. Choose your own class and write a master post about this challenge on your blog. You have to put the banner on your blog too. Copy paste the script below to put on your blog's sidebar.
4. You can sort down the books you'll read on the master post and edit them later if necessary.
5. Submit your link below for signing up. The sign-up linky will be opened from February 7, 2014 throughout the year until December 1, 2014
6. I also put linkies for monthly reviews. They're opened from the first day of each month till the end of each month.
7. At the end of the challenge, please write down a wrap-up post and submit the link in the linky too. The linky of wrap-up post will be opened from December 1, 2014 til February 7, 2015.
8. I will pick one winner from every class based on points you collect. The prizes will be revealed soon.
9. You may write the reviews in English or Bahasa Indonesia.
10. Comics or graphic novels are allowed, but not more than 2 books.
11. You may combine the books you read with other challenges.
12. I'll try to make 2 game posts to boost your points. It will be revealed soon.
13. Have fun!

Untuk poinnya, seperti ini:
Master Post: +10pts
Review Post: +5-10pts
Wrap-Up Post: +25pts
Game Post: +10-15pts

Ada poin tambahannya lho, itu bergantung pada genre apa yang kamu baca. Kalau genrenya tergolong berat, pasti ditambahin sama Mbak Peni. Semua aturan RC dibuat dan dilaksanakan oleh Mbak Peni. Kalau ada pertanyaan, silakan capcus aja ke blog Mbak Peni dan tanya langsung sama beliau.

Nah, begitu saja. Aturannya gampang kan?
Oke, yak. Let's get it started!

PS. Ada beberapa buku di tiap bulannya yang belum sempat aku bikin reviewnya. Jadi ini adalah buku-buku yang aku baca pada 2014 dan sudah memiliki review. Review untuk buku lainnya akan ditambahkan kalau udah dibikin pada bulan penulisan reviewnya, bukan bulan bacanya.

Review Januari:

  1. Frigid (J. Lynn)
  2. If You Stay (Courtney Cole)
  3. Resisting Her (Kendall Ryan)
Review Februari:

Review: Come Away With Me

Penerbit : Kristen Proby Publishing
Halaman : 324 Hal.
Bahasa: Inggris
Genre : Adult, Contemporary Romance
Average Rating : 4.02 (per 17 Februari 2014)
Note : Masuk dalam New Authors Reading Challenge dan Lucky No. 14 Kategori Cover Lust.

Come Away With Me:   
Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

Luke Williams just wants the world to give him a break, so seeing yet another camera aimed at his face has him ready to pounce on the beauty behind the lens. When he finds out she has no idea who he is, he's intrigued and more than a little tempted by her. Natalie has a body made for sex, a sassy mouth and Luke can’t get enough of her, but he’s not ready to tell her who he really his.

Natalie is a no nonsense girl who doesn’t do well with lies and secrets. What will happen to this new relationship when she discovers what Luke’s hiding?

Udah tanggal 18 tapi ini review pertamaku di bulan Februari. Maklum, aku baru sembuh sakit dan males banget buat duduk dan buka laptop, jadinya cuman guling-guling doang di kasur. Awalnya kukira ini buku erotika berat lho. Mungkin karena pengaruh kovernya. Bisa dibilang, yang bikin aku tertarik ya itu. Kovernya. Emang lumayan eksplisit isinya, tapi nggak terlalu parah kok.
