Crush of the Week

Standard

I can’t believe I’m a day late for this weeks Crush again haha.

Well anyway its here….

So I was going to do Danila Kozlovsky and then I realised that I’d already had him as crush but well… he may have to be re done soon…
And then I thought hmmm… who else is lush in the VA movie?

Well it was obvious!

So this weeks Crush is:

         DOMINIC SHERWOOD

image

Dominic was born 6th February 1990 in Kent South East England, UK.
Dom is both an actor and a model.
He went to Oakwood Park Grammar in Maidstone. After studying Drama and Theatre Studies as schools in Maidstone, he left to work abroad, starting in Kenya and moving for 6 months before returning to London.
He began working in several plays before signing with an agency and getting work on TV and Film.

In 2010 he got his first recurring role in the third season of the series The Cut as Jack Simmons.
In 2011 he appeared in an episode of Sadie J titled “Cherylistic” as Walter
In 2012 he appeared in the movie Not Fade Away as young Mick Jagger
In 2013 Dom got his first notable role as Christian Ozera in the movie Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters based on the popular novels by Richelle Mead! (YAAAAAAAAAAY!)

He’s also had small movie roles in Stoned, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Stormbreaker.

2012 modelled for Hollister Co.

He’s also on twitter peeps! DomSherwood1

So why is he Crush of the Week?

Dominic is without a doubt beautifully handsome. Strong jaw line and very kissable lips (which was described by my friend Stephanie)
Dominic has confirmed he has Heterochromia, which is two different eye colours which to be honest makes he look even more handsome. And his voice… mmmmmm… I know I’m from England myself but his voice is just amazing and sexy haha (I love Jamie Campbell Bowers voice too)

I was looking at videos of him on YouTube so I could put on my blog and everyone has commented on how lovely and funny and down to earth he is and how he gets along with the other VA cast members 🙂

People are moaning about the cast of VA but they are a perfect cast and Dominic is going to be a perfect Christian. He is just how I pictured him in the books and I cannot wait to see him portray Christian in VA 🙂

Here’s an Interview of Dominic:

Half Blood, Pure, Deity and Apollyon Book Reviews

Standard

Oh my god!

Whenever I read a Jennifer L Armentrout book I’m instantly sucked in and I instantly love the characters. The Lux series… well lets just say I LOVE THEM (and Daemon of course) and well I honestly thought “How can these books be topped? They are amazing!”

But they were!

The Covenant Series… HOLY DAIMON BABIES THEY ARE BRILLIANT!!

The first book in the series is:
                    Half Blood

image

image

           (A photo of the blurb)

It follows Alexandria, a half blood, (Alex for short) whose run away from the Covenant with her mother. And well that’s where it all starts. Sentinels from the Covenant find Alex and bring her back. Her mother has been killed so she’s all alone. Then of course there’s Aiden St Delphi, a pure blood Sentinel, who offers to train Alex on all she’s missed… Of course you know exactly what going to happen there!!
There’s an instant attraction between them and you can see that their relationship isn’t going to be easy… Especially seeing as Pure Blood’s and Half Blood’s can’t be together….
Of course they fight the attraction but there’s a moment when well… they don’t… (okay two occasions when they don’t!)
And then a bomb shell drops… (you’ll have to read to see what it is!) And that’s when everything goes wrong. Cue an epic fight scene and one sexy Aiden…

The second book in the series is:
                        Pure

image

image

         (A photo of the blurb)

So the second book practically follows where the first left off except this time there’s a new guy on the scene…
Aiden is trying to keep his distance from Alex but it doesn’t really work, seeing as they are still training together! And then oh my god the zoo scene….
Alex and the guards are summond to the Catskills to answer for what happened in the first book
And then comes Seth, the Apollyon, and Alex feels a strong connection to him…
While at the Catskills, Alex grows closer to Seth while her relationship with Aiden slowly disappears in a way.
While at the Catskills there are people out to get her… One of course is Minister Telly (I wanted to kill him!)
There’s a ball and ohhhh the way Aiden and Alex look at each other…
Seth tells Alex that she should give him a try and she does… but he’s not Aiden
And of course the Gods have unleashed the Furies and well when the covenant breached they are unleashed…
Cue another epic fight scene and another revelation of course 🙂

The third book in the series is:
                      Deity

image

image

           (Picture of the blurb)

After everything went down at the Catskills both Aiden and Alex are desperate to keep the secret of what actually happened that night… (no they didn’t sleep together!)
Of course Alex has just found out that she’s the second Apollyon… something that hasn’t happened in at least a hundred years or so.
When Alex turns 18 she’ll awaken and then be connected with Seth… something she’s not really looking forward too.
With her training now involving Seth too… well lets just say there isn’t alot of training going on… especially as Seth constantly wants to get down and dirty all the time… and seeing as everytime they touch Alex gets a new mark of the Apollyon…
And well… Alex is also in danger… An Order wants to kill Alex so she doesn’t connect with Seth…
Seth ends up going back to the Catskills and with Alex alone… well the order does get to her…
And that’s when Aiden reveals his true feelings for Alex… (cue some lovey dovey scenes which are amazing)
Keeping their relationship secret for now is hard.. especially as all they want to do is rip each others clothes off!
Oh and also a God is among them!
But then comes the day of Alex’s 18th Birthday…
And that’s when everything changes….

The Fourth book in the series is:
                     Apollyon

image

image

 

            (Picture of the blurb)

Before you read Apollyon you do need to read the short Novella Elixir which is from Aiden’s POV…
I was told by my amazing friends to read it and seeing as I couldn’t wait for it to be ordered and shipped over here I read it on my phone… And it made sense to read it.
Because without reading it the beginning of Apollyon won’t make sense…
So it begins where Elixir is left…
Alex is connected with the First and she’s lost herself completely to him.
Aiden however won’t give up. He believed their love is stronger than anything and after an epic show down between the two Alex manages to break the connection.
Then theres a shower scene between her and Aiden… mmmmm
Anyway!
This book is all about the ways in how they can defeat the First (Seth) and how they have to find the God whose responsible.
Alex and Aiden travel to the Underworld to get answers, a few sex scenea between the two of them and then of course comes another fight scene.
Accept this time there’s a God involved and he… well Alex is in a pretty bad shape by the time he’s finished with her.
It ends on a cliffhanger and I for one cannot wait for Sentinel.

I really do love Jennifer L Armentrout’s writing style and how she makes you fall in love with the characters… especially the boys!
Alex is feisty and sarcastic but deep down she loves and she hurts.. just like a normal teenage girl. Alex suffers through two loses throughout the series and then her biggest fear is losing Aiden.
And Aiden well he’s just HOT! Haha and loyal and he can fight and of course he’s devoted to Alex, even when he did try and push her away in Pure.

This book has everything: love, action, heartstopping moments and above all a sense of friendship and loyalty.

Jennifer has fast become my favourite author and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
I can’t get enough of her books!
She sucks you right in from the first sentence and they are always full of love and problematic situations and so so so addictive! When you read her books you get so drawn into them that before you know it a day has passed and your halfway through the book….

Her YA and NA books are incredible and I would definitely recommend these books to anyone

God I could spend an entire blog post gushing about Jennifer. Man she’s just an amazing author and if my books that I’m writing are even half as good as hers then I’d be one happy bunny.

I seriously love Jennifer L Armentrout and all her books of hers that I have read so far

This whole series…?

A definite 10 out of 10

Ah hell 100 out of 100!

Drake’s POV

Standard

I started to think about how Drake would feel in my story. Seeing as its from Flora’s POV I thought I’d flip the story around and write it as Drake….

This scene just came to me and I haven’t really figured out why they are arguing yet but somewhere I want to get this into my story… from Flora’s POV obviously but this will be an extra scene in the book if it ever gets published… (that’s a dream that probably won’t happen but its still a nice dream)

So here it is:

Drake’s POV

Looking at her now I noticed two things… One her eyes flashed a dark brown when she was angry and two…
  I could feel the energy inside her just waiting to be released.
  I’ve been yelled at many, many times before and never once did it bother me but now… Something had changed. Flora yelling at me was different. I didn’t want her to yell at ne ever again.
  Her hands were closed tightly at her sides, balled into fists, shaking like they wanted nothing more than to smack into my face. I’d never seen her angry. It suited her though. She looked like some fierce warrior queen. I smirked and that was when she lost it.
  “Are you even listening to me Drake?” She shouted
  “Of course I’m listening but I gotta tell you flower its boring me”
I replied
  Her eyes of course flashed even angrier and she looked like she was on the verge of tears… And that hurt me. Cut me deep. The last time she had cried she had been hurt and watching her tears fall down her cheeks had near enough killed me.
  “You don’t care do you? You’ve never cared about me. Perhaps Samii is right, maybe all you want to do is get into my pants. I was right about you from the start Drake. You’re arrogant, self centered and there isn’t a caring bone in your body… Answer me Drake… Tell me I’m wrong.”
  I took a deep breath but said nothing. So many emotions were rolling around me at this moment. Anger at her for questioning my feelings and intentions towards her, annoyed that she still saw me as a self centered dick but most of all the passion inside me was telling me to kiss her, to hold her tight to me but I couldn’t.
  The silence stretched between us and suddenly her hand came up and slapped me hard against the cheek.
  I’d been on the receiving end of slaps before too but like before this was something new. It hurt me down to my soul and I had never felt so hollow.
  “I hate you Drake. Don’t ever come near me again, don’t ever touch me or speak to me again. You should have just let those… Those men kill me.”
  Tears fell down her face and that, that was what broke me. The way her eyes filled with tears, splashing down her cheeks, the way her lip trembled as she tried to hold in a sob and the way the energy, that power inside her was ready to snap and break loose.
  And what did I do? I stood there as she walked away from me, walked out of my house and into the night.
  “Shit.” I whispered.
  I grabbed the nearest thing I could, throwing it at the wall, watching it shatter and fly everywhere. The chair was next, throwing it against the furthest wall I could find until it splintered and broke. The anger inside me was bubbling. But it wasn’t because of her; it was because of me, because I couldn’t be with her, because of those stupid, stupid rules that are in place. I was meant to watch her, to see what she was like, to get to see the strength of her power. But instead all I saw was her eyes, her lips, the way she smiled at me and the way she bit her bottom lip when she was concentrating…
  God I was in too deep. I needed to leave, needed to get out of this place but the anger inside of me was still bubbling, still ready to burst free. My hands were sweating, the fire waiting to erupt and I clenched them tightly into fists. I wouldn’t burn down this house, I wouldn’t do it…
  “Drake?”
  I spun around, seeing Flora stood in the doorway, her eyes fresh out of tears but still looking red and blood shot. God she was beautiful. And that was when I knew… I’d do anything for this girl.

Re done prologue and part of chapter 1 of my YA book (as of yet its still untitled)

Standard

So I spent the day (okay like 2 hours) at the computer (in the library) and I re did the beginning and the start of chapter 1 of my YA book. After my friend told me that Flora needs to be a bit more witty and lovable I re read the parts I done and decided to change it… so here it is:

Prologue
 
The girl’s hips rocked against his and he felt her gasp against his lips. They were still both fully clothed but he knew that in a few minutes they would be gone.
  This was how he liked to un-wind after a hard day; losing himself in someone else.
  He felt her hands in his hair, pulling his mouth closer to hers.
  His hands snaked up her top, heading for her bra clasp…
  His bedroom door pounded and then opened.
  “For goodness sake Drake… You have to stop behaving this was. Nixie, leave my sons room now.” His father’s booming voice echoed across the room
  Drake rolled off Nixie, resting his hands under his head, watching as Nixie ran from the room.
  She was beautiful he supposed. Wavy blonde hair, pale skin, red lips and sea blue eyes, but she wasn’t his type of beautiful. He knew what he liked.
  “Drake we need you in the Council Hall. Something has happened.”
  Drake got up from the bed, doing up his jeans and pulling his t-shirt on before following his father out of the room and down into the glass corridor. The walls were tiled with small multi coloured pieces of glass that reflected against it, making everything look like a rainbow.  They entered the Council Hall and seated around the crystal table were all the councilors. And they were arguing.
  “Calm down. My son is here now; we can start to discuss this rationally…”
  “Rationally? A war is about to break out in the kingdom…”
  “And we all know why…”
  “It shouldn’t have happened…”
  “It’s an abomination…”
  The councilors all began talking over each other again and Drake could see his father boiling with anger.
  “QUIET!” his father bellowed “Arguing is not going to solve the situation.”
  “What situation?.” Drake asked
  “It seems as though Kalen wants to start a war. Only this time it’s over a human…”
  “A human? We haven’t been around humans for years.” Drake responded.
  “You’re right. But this human is… different. Many want her dead, some want her alive.”
  “Her?” Drake asked, summoning up an image of a human woman in his mind; creamy soft skin, full lips, curves…
  “Drake focus. This is serious. Kalen wants her dead whereas Breena wants her alive…”
  “And what do we want? Us who are stuck in the middle.” Drake asked a small grin on his face.
  “This is where you come in Drake.” One of the councilors responded.
  “Me?”
  “You’re the only one near her age. We need you to watch her, see if she offers any threat to us, if she’s that powerful as they say…”
  “Powerful? How powerful can a human be? Who is she?”
  “You’ll have a name when you leave.” His father told him
  “What if I don’t want to leave? My darling fiancée, Kaliste, is here after all…”
  “You’re going. And you leave tonight. It’s not for discussion Drake.”
  Drake stared his father down, but in the end Drake lost.
  “Fine I’ll leave for the human world tonight.”
  “Good.”
  His father handed over an envelope and Drake raised his eyebrow at him.
  “Her name and a photograph are in there. Just remember Drake… This is an undercover mission. Do not get involved with her. Do not become her friend or even her lover. You find out what you can and leave… Got it?”
  “Understood father.”
  “Then you better get packed. The council is dismissed.”
 
 
Chapter One- Flora
 
Looking in the mirror I realized two things…
  One my hair was seriously in need of being tamed… It literally was wild.
  And two…
  Well okay maybe it was just the hair situation that was getting on my nerves right now. First day back at college and it looked like I had been dragged through a hedge backwards.
  I sighed, backing away from the mirror. It would have to do.
  I was already behind schedule a little bit and I did not want to become one of those girls who constantly obsessed over their hair.
  I pulled the lip salve from my makeup bag and swept it over my lips. Every girl at college seemed to have bright red lips at the moment. It was the new thing that was happening in some sort of fashion magazine right now but I didn’t care.
  I didn’t read fashion magazines, or gossip magazines or whatever… Give me Sci-Fi Now and SFX and I was happy. Also my monthly copy of Soul and Spirit magazine and that was it.
  My source of reading was books. I loved books. I was an avid reader of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Paranormal and YA.
  Glancing around my room I saw the pile of books that I had yet to read. 25 in total and I was getting more from Amazon tomorrow.
  I picked up the book I was currently reading at the moment and put it straight into my bag. I carried my books around with me everywhere and I was definitely going to be reading this in my free I had later. I needed a fix of Aiden St Delphi on a daily basis. If only he was real…
  “Flora! Ryan and Poppy are here!” My mother’s voice floated from downstairs.
  This was going to be awkward. During the summer holiday’s Ryan and I decided to date. He’d been my best friend and next door neighbour since I was a baby and we were always stuck to the hip.
  I knew Ryan liked me more than a friend by the way he grabbed my hand when we were walking down the beach with the others or by the way he would hold onto me just that little bit longer when we hugged goodbye…
  I’m not being big headed, I just sort of knew.
  The first time we had kissed it was weird for me. I loved Ryan with my whole heart but it wasn’t that kind of love and I knew his was. We’d… Well we had had sex and that was awkward too… I think that was the moment when I knew I just wanted to stay friends with him, but I hadn’t had the nerve to tell him that.
  I hadn’t seen him for the last month and a half of the summer holidays as he and his family went to visit relatives down in Australia. We spoke as much as we could and then Ryan told me… He said the words; I Love You.
  I said it back but his words meant something different than mine did. Ryan was mine, my own little piece of happiness but he wasn’t the love of my life and I was terrified of losing him if I told him the truth.
  I grabbed my scarf from the back of the door and made my way down stairs… And stopped dead.
  Ryan… Well Ryan was HOT! He’d grown during the time he’d been away. His muscles had filled out more, his hair had that sun kissed look and his skin was golden from the Australian sun. His grin widened when he saw me and before I knew it I was in his big strong arms and he was hugging me close.
  “I missed you so much.” He said, before putting me back on my feet.
  “I missed you too Ryan”
  Over his shoulder I saw Poppy give me the look. Poppy knew, she knew my feelings for Ryan were different from his feelings for me and she had told me time and time again to tell him the truth but the words just wouldn’t leave my mouth.
  “Guys save the reunion for college; we’re going to be late.” Poppy told us, giving me a look.
  I untangled myself from Ryan and hugged Poppy. My dear friend poppy was beautiful. Raven coloured hair that was curled naturally, a curvy figure that was always emphasized when she wore skinny jeans and green eyes that were made even more eye popping with her dark rimmed glasses.
  “You have to tell him.” She whispered
  “I know I do but it’s so hard.” I whispered back.
  She gave me a little squeeze and then I let her go.
  “Bye mom.” I shouted. I could hear her in the kitchen, scrambling around in the draws looking for something knowing her. I heard her footsteps coming to the kitchen door and she gave me a small smile.
  “Have a good day. Flora when you get back can we have a talk?”
  “Of course we can. See you later.”
  I left the house last, shutting the door behind me. I wondered what she wanted to talk about…
  “Flora. Show Ryan what you got while he was away”
  I turned to Ryan and pulled back my cardigan sleeve, showing him the tattoo of an Orchid I had on my wrist.
  “A tattoo… Flora I didn’t know you wanted one of them”
  “I didn’t either but I was just drawn to it…”
  “And why an Orchid?” He asked
  I shrugged my shoulders, I had no idea why either. It just called to me when I was looking through the designs.
  “You should have been careful, Flo. Your anemic, what if something had happened?”
  I rolled my eyes. Yes I was anemic and yes I knew the risks… But something had compelled me to get that tattoo and I didn’t regret it.
  “You’re looking a little pale Flo…”
  “Ryan I’m fine”
  “I really think you should go back to the doctors. They can prescribe you Iron tablets…”
  “She’s allergic to Iron dumbass. Or has all the muscle you’ve developed hindered your brain?” Poppy responded.
   I tried not to laugh but catching Poppy’s eye I burst into laughter. Ryan gave us a sarcastic smile back and walked several steps in front of us.
  I wish I knew why I was allergic to iron and why I was anemic but the doctors didn’t have records of my real parents. My mom and dad had adopted me when I was only a few weeks old and I found out when I was six that I was adopted… Well I’d overheard them talking about it. That was around the time of my anemia and iron allergies and they were worried about me. When they mentioned my real mom and dad I was confused but as I grew older I realised what it had meant. This was why I was reluctant to tell Ryan that I wanted to go back to being friends. The people who brought me into this world were meant to love me but they didn’t, instead they abandoned me. And I could see my other parents were slowly becoming distant from me too. It could have been all in my head but… Something was going on there. If I lost Ryan too I wouldn’t cope.
  Poppy and I eventually caught up with Ryan and I linked my arm through his, smiling at him as he looked at me.
  When we got to college… Well everyone seemed to be gathered around the seating area, crowding someone.
  “What’s going on?” I asked Poppy
  “No idea… Hey Minnie!”
  Minnie turned around, grinning when she saw us. Minnie was more eccentric than the rest of us put together. Her blonde hair was cut into a pixie style and believe it or not, Minnie actually wore pixie ears. We’d found them when we’d done our monthly trip to Glastonbury town and since then she’s never taken them off. Today she is in a long green skirt, her converse trainers peaking up from under the hem and she had on her Vampire Diaries top on with Team Damon scrawled along the front. She’d made it herself.
  “There’s a new guy. And oh my days he is HOT! Like smoking hot… Hey Ryan when did you get all buff?”
  Minnie also had a short attention span.
  Ryan mumbled something back to her and looked relived when Jackson and George came our way. To be fair to them too, they had also buffed up. I turned my attention back to Minnie, who was talking about the latest episode of TVD.
  “And oh my god Damon was like even more super hot in this episode… I love him…”
  “Speaking of love… Flo has a new book husband.” Poppy told Minnie
  “Tell all!” She said, spinning around to face me.
  “Aiden from The Covenant series… I got them from America.”
  “You’ve never been to America.” Minnie said
  “Yes but thanks to my amazing blog I have American friends and they recommended them, I brought from Amazon and now… Now I’m in love”
  We all burst out laughing. This was us on a daily basis. We didn’t talk about normal things. Instead we spoke about fantasy worlds on TV and Film, our book husbands and what we would do if a zombie/vampire/ fallen angel took over our world… Yeah we were giant ass geeks… And to be honest I loved it.
  “Anyway back to the new guy…” I said, prompting Minnie to reveal some more.
  “Yeah so when I got here everyone was crowding around something, just like they were now and I thought there was a fight or something so I made my way over and there he stood… The God of Penzance. He’s hot guys… Like seriously hot and…”
  “And he’d never look at any of you nerds. So get those fantasies out of your heads”
  I turned around and there stood the bitch crew aka Samii, Kate and Claire. We had an ongoing rivalry between them for reasons that I didn’t really know and to be honest didn’t really care.
  “Oh my god guys it’s like Samii with two I’s instead of one… Did you know that makes her sound like sooo sophisticated?”
  Poppy and Minnie laughed behind me and I could see the glare in Samii’s eyes.
  “Why don’t you go crawl back into your gruffalo hole geek.”
  “Ahhh guys… Samii read a book… The gruffalo, how cute” Poppy piped up.
  “One of these days you girls will wish you never came to this college. I’m going to make your lives hell”
  “Welcome back to the first day of college! It’s the same threat we’ve gotten every year from you Samii since middle school… Isn’t it about time you got a new tag line?”
  “Just stay away from the new guy freak.”
  And off they walked, hitching their skirts higher up their legs. They practically threw themselves at the guy and by the look on his face he loved it.
  “He is welcome to them. Did you see the way they threw themselves at him?” Minnie said.
  I continued to look at the new guy, something was wrong with me. I couldn’t seem to stop staring at him and when his eyes met mine, well that was it. The world… It was like it stopped. His eyes widened before they looked away from me and the world started moving again.
  “Flo you okay? You’ve gone a little pale”
  “I’m fine Min. Let’s go inside. I’m fed up of watching them all throw themselves at him like its feeding time at the zoo”
  We turned away, finding Ryan, Jackson and George, sitting a distance away from the crowd. They smiled as we neared them and I sat down opposite Ryan.
  “So who’s the new guy?” Jackson asked
  “No idea and I don’t actually care.” I replied “By the small glimpse I caught of him he looks self centered and full of himself. Samii and the bitch herd are going to love having someone around like them”
  “So you have no desire in getting to know me?”
  We all turned around at the voice behind us. New guy was right there. He gave me a smirk.
  “And here I thought we had shared a moment back then. Clearly it was my mistake.”
  “Clearly” I turned back around but I felt his hand on my shoulder, turning me back to face him.
  “My name is Drake.”
  “And I care because?” I asked
  He didn’t answer. Instead Drake laughed at me and removed his hand from my shoulder. I caught a glimpse of his face. Up close I suppose he was handsome. Strong jaw, full lips, light brown hair and amber coloured eyes… Wait amber eyes? And did they just flash yellow?
  “I’ll see you around Flora.” He said before leaving us.
  “That was weird… Oh my gods look at Samii’s face… She looks like she’s going to explode…”
