Review: Academy of Assassins by Stacey Brutger

 Academy of Assassins
By Stacey Brutger
My Rating: 5 Stars
Publication Date: October 29, 2017
Paperback, 310 Pages

Summary From Goodreads: 

Abandoned as a child and unable to remember her past, Morgan was raised as a hunter, one of an elite group of fighters sworn to protect humans from the dangerous paranormal creatures who invade our world…creatures such as herself. Her life changes the day she’s summoned to the Academy of Assassins, a school that trains witches and hunters to eradicate paranormals who prey on humans. Her first assignment—find and eliminate the killer who is using the Academy as their own personal hunting ground.

As Morgan delves deeper into the investigation, she will need to dodge assassination attempts, avoid the distraction of romantic entanglements with the devilishly handsome security expert, Kincade, and his maddeningly overprotective teammates, while keeping the volatile magic in her blood concealed from those who would use it for their own purposes. When the danger increases and the school is threatened, Morgan must unearth her missing memories before someone finishes the job they started so long ago—killing her and unleashing a plague that will consume the world. 

My Review:

SO. I have been rather into Reverse Harem books lately. Uh uh... Stop right there, and get your mind out of the gutter (I know what you're thinking) Tut tut, shame on you.

As one reviewer so eloquently put it ( I don't remember who, I just remember reading it in a review somewhere) Harems are not all about the sex *insert slightly altered version of "All About That Base here* but more to do with the main character's relationship with her boys. For instance, some of my all time favorite Reverse Harem books are so PG  (some of them venture into the PG-13 Category, but oh well. For instance, I love Ouran High School Host Club, and Pretear, Classi 9... Yes, I know they're all Manga, but still. Reverse Harem. Cute. Not smutty. Also, you have the Academy by C.L. Stone,
which is super swoony and not smutty.

But I'm getting off topic.

I read Academy of Assassins, and oh my holy hot caaaaakes, it was magnificent. MAG. NI. FI. CIENT. I literally read it in one sitting, it was that good. And apparently I did not pay enough attention to the release date when I purchased the Kindle book, because I thought that there was more than one book already out. But no. Nope. Of course not. SO NOW I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL SOMETIME NEXT YEAR BEFORE THE SECOND BOOK COMES OUT.

I am not okay.





Well, I mean, yes I am. But I am also very emotionally distraught as well. it was so good, and I haven't had a book that I've been so obsessed with in a while. I loved it so much that not only do I own the Kindle version, but I also went and ordered the actual paper back, because I like to underline my favorite parts in pencil, and leave little sticky notes inside, so when my friend inevitably reads the book, she'll get to see it all.

The cover is abso-freaking-lutely gorgeous. It really matched with how I pictured Morgan in my head.

I loved Morgan, and how she was so independent and kick a$$. She wasn't a damsel in distress, and she did  not need saving, thankyouverymuch. 

I loved that she could hold her own with the boys, and didn't let anyone push her around. She also stood up for people when she saw that they were being treated poorly. She sometimes was a bit too independent and that caused her more trouble than it was worth, (if she would have just communicated better to people... but she'd been through a lot, and some people didn't want to be very communicative, so I understand)

I loved her relationship with the boys, yes even Kincade, even though he was pretty much a douche bag the whole way through.

I'm not sure who my favorite guy is.. I really like Ascher, and Draven, and Ryder, and I'm still on the fence about how I feel about Kincade and Atlas.

I totally called the Hellhound being an actual person, I just had no idea how important he'd actually end up being to Morgan.

There was so much going on so many twists and turns, and I love the fact that Morgan could take care of herself (which I have mentioned before) She was kicking a$$ and taking names, and she was also very tough emotionally as well. She went through so much growing up, but she didn't let it break her, instead she used that pain to make herself stronger.

So here I sit.




I need the next one now.

Seduction Release Day Blitz for Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington


Oh my holy hotcakes everyone.... Today is THE DAY. The long-awaited, much anticipated, I've probably talked my best friend's ear off because of it RELEASE DAY!!!!!!!!

I am beyond excited. I love my Reverse Harem books, I don't know exactly why (no it's not because of the smutty things that can happen, thank you very much. My first real Reverse Harem was Ouran Highschool Host Club, thank you very much... oops, getting off topic sorry)

I happened across the first book in the series by chance, and I absolutely loved it!  Then the second one came out almost right after (not really, but you know it felt like it.) Then the wait for Seduction has about killed me and my best friend who I managed to convince she needed to read it, and now she's as obsessed as I am (ha ha!)

But really I am so glad that this book is finally available, and that I am able to read it.

I am writing this post the day before it releases, but I can guarantee you that as soon as my preorder is available to read, I'll be up reading it. So I'll probably be a little slap happy at work.

Any ways.... Here is all the lovely information that you need to know to be able to get this book for yourself, plus the back of the book blurb, plus the teasers that are available... *SIGH*

Willa Knight: Dweller? Sol? Accidental evolutionary hiccup?

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshipping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules—but none of that matters anymore.
The rules are changing.
The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans.
Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out—until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos. With the Abcurses gone, she’ll have to rely on her wits, and her sister Emmy, to stay under the radar and survive.
Because someone wants her dead.

But, really, what else is new?.

Author Bios:

Jaymin Eve:
Jaymin Eve is the USA Today Bestselling author of Young Adult and New Adult romance novels (both urban fantasy and contemporary). She loves surrounding herself with the best things in life: her two girls, a good book and chocolate.
Living on the beautiful Gold Coast in Australia, the family loves spending lots of time on the beach. And traveling as frequently as possible.
When Jaymin isn’t trying to wrangle two daughters, a puppy and her husband, you will find her hiding in a corner trying desperately to write her stories (without little fingers pressing random keys). She asks for forgiveness if you notice the occasional sskkkkssis appearing in her book, her children are proud of their contribution.
She’d love it if you contacted her, giving feedback or just to have a chat.

Jane Washington:
Jane Washington is a 'Literary Awards off the Internet' bestselling author and ‘self-awarded’ award-winner with a professional capacity to take herself seriously and a steely determination to seduce the entire book world… or at least to have someone walk up to her in Kmart and tell her that they loved one of her books--even if they're mistaking it for another book. She holds herself responsible for the Beatrice Harrow young adult series, and the Seraph Black slightly-older-young-adult series.
If you want to know more about her, you’d better hire a private investigator because she’s proven to be a terrible online communicator. On the other hand, if you’re one of those people that gets off on terrible online communication, you can contact her at
That sounded wrong.
Is it too late to take that back?
