    Amazing, Must Read Series!

    I absolutely love this series! It's heart-wrenching, and at times hard to read because of what these poor characters are going through, but I still love it! The main books are in Celia's perspective, and I do recommend reading the books from the beginning because the story is all connected, but this book says it's the 6th book in the series, but the events in this book take place before a few of the previous books; I'm thinking around the events of the 3rd book. This book is in the perspective of one of Celia's sister, Taran. Taran is very feisty, puts her foot in her mouth often, and has colorful language, and at times I cringed at her attitude, but other times I was like right on, girl! I love how honest she is, and that she doesn't let people treat her badly. Taran's boyfriend, Gemini, knows she is his mate and he wants her to commit to him, and since his parents are going to be in town, he would like her to meet his parents, but Taran has trouble fully committing to a relationship because she is afraid of being hurt, so she puts up walls. Taran decides she'll meet Gemini half way, and meet his parents, but pretty much everything goes wrong when she does. There is also a side story of demons being on the loose causing mayhem. Taren and company are put in a dire situation, and they really need to fight to survive. I loved the action scenes, and Taren has a badass power with her fire ability. I love Taran and Gemini together! Their chemistry is great, and they have some steamy moments, and Gemini is such a sweetheart. I did find some of the interactions with Gem's parents odd, but maybe I'm just not use to the Asian culture's way of being. I love that we got some of Celia and Aric in this book, and I look forward to more stories set in this world. I did want more of a decision made by Taran, but I feel like she is getting there. This is an Excellent series, and I highly recommend it!

    A great read

    Of Flame and Promise is book #6 in Cecy Robson's popular A Weird Girls series. This is the first book I have read in the series and while I did struggle a few time due to my lack of previous storylines, I found this book to be a very entertaining read. Taran is absolutely hilarious in this book. She is a serious badass with a foul mouth and power to back it all up. She is crazy for her boyfriend Gemini but when he asks her to meet his parents Taran freaks out. After watching her sister go through a horrible amount of heartbreak, Taran is scared of ever feeling the same way. Gemini is second in command of his wolf pack. He and his wolf have decided that Taran is the mate they want, the only problem is convincing Taran of that. When Gemini takes Taran to meet his parents all sorts of craziness erupts. With Taran's smart mouth you just know nothing will go easy or as planned. This part of the story had me laughing so hard I had tears rolling out of my eyes. This story has something for everyone. A feisty heroine, a swoon worthy hero, lots of drama and a good bit of good vs. evil thrown into the mix. After reading this installment of the series I can't wait to go back and read all the other books I have missed. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

    Fans of the Weird Girls will love this! Must Read!

    ~ 4 Of Flame and Promise Stars ~ Of Flame and Promise is an excellent spin off in the Weird Girls series featuring Taran. It is listed as book six, but It’s more a novella and could be read before or during book five in this series. Just like all the other books in this series you may want to have a box of tissues at hand; because we are taken on an emotional journey into the mind of Taran. Taran is feisty, foul mouthed, bad tempered, and a kick-ass chick. She is also loving, kind, and completely devoted to those she loves. We learn a lot about Taran, but still somethings are left a mystery to use. Her inner struggles and fears broke my heart, but also helped clarify some of her actions in the other books. In this novella she meets Gemini's parents to help ease the tension building between them. Will things go as planned or will it be a disaster? Will she ever be able to let Gemini completely into her heart or will she forever be alone? Of Flame and Promise was a splendid read. It gives us an entertaining plot, danger, action, romance, snark, and a couple I have been waiting to read more about. If you are a fan of the Weird Girls series, you don’t want to miss out on picking up this novella. *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Random House Publishing Group via NetGalley with the sole purpose of an honest review.

    Of Flame and Promise

    Taran Wird is crazy about Gemini, the sexy wolf with the incredible ability to split into two different wolves, but she knows not to count on happily ever after despite Gemini’s desire to claim her in this spellbinding urban fantasy romance. Despite her fears of commitment, Taran reluctantly agrees to meet Gemini’s parents and readers can’t help but get pulled into the story as one disaster after another plagues Taran’s every attempt to bond with them. Spine tingling tension, quite a few chuckles and emotional turbulence build throughout the story as the reader relates to Taran’s situation and excitement builds when Taran is forced to prove that though she may be a foul-mouthed fire starter, she is a force to be reckoned with. The fast paced, well written and smooth flowing plot never has a dull moment with everything that happens around Taran including some moments of jealousy inspired chaos and of course the evil and mayhem caused by their enemies. The intriguing events draw readers in and ensure they have to turn every page as the sizzling chemistry between Gemini and Taran spark scorching passion but also lots of emotional angst as their relationship has Gemini wanting to claim her and of course there is all the emotional turmoil and excitement surrounding the other Wird sisters to spice things up as well. Once again, the Weird Girls had me glued to the pages with the exhilarating but believable action, passionate and vulnerable emotional output that flows from the bewitching characters as well as the intriguing events and fascinating world that keeps surprising me and I can’t wait to read the next one, oh and I guess I should mention that Of Flames and Promise is from Taran’s POV which makes for a nice change of pace.
