Dear Edward, I'm sorry, but I've found someone new...

I know this may seem sudden, but you have to admit, we've had a good run. In the beginning I was very taken by you. Your handsome young face, deep soulful golden…no black… no golden eyes, long lean body covered in icy sparkling skin. I loved your unruly but perfect ‘sex’ hair. But, then I started to want more. At first I was happy, reading about tenuous kisses and innocent touches. But then, I found you had a few alternate personalities that were a little more sophisticated and appealed to my more, what’s the right word…passionate side. I learned to love you as a hockey player, a tattoo artist, a dominant (he was my favorite, btw). Part of the reason I’m leaving you is, your just too reserved for me Edward. I need a man who is not afraid to lose their temper and to embrace his inner beast. I need a man that is not afraid to become a snarling, murderous, unrecognizable creature and refuses to apologize for it. But now, even though I have thoroughly enjoyed our time together *coughs* redroomofpain *coughs*…I have found that man - well not really a man… I’m actually not sure what he is – that fulfills my desires and brings out a much more carnal passion than I ever thought possible. He’s older, I know you’re 109, but he has lived for millennia and his experience gives him an indefinable air. He knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to take it. And I know what I want… him to mark me, him to own me, just him and black silk sheets. I will always have a special place in my heart for you, Edward. And, I would say maybe we could still spend time together, but Jericho doesn’t like to share. Take care of yourself, norcaltwitard.

Okay h00rs, I know that many of you may be appalled right now. But, just let me explain. A about a month ago I was on twitter (I know, big shock) and @TwilightCougar1 retweeted a tweet from some guy named Jericho Barrons to some lucky bitch named MacKayla Lane…and it was HAWT! Like, singe your eyeballs hawt. And I was like, why doesn’t that ever happen to me?! And so I retweeted the quote with that exact question. @TwilightCougar1 was a very helpful crack dealer, I mean h00r, and explained that Jericho and MacKayla are characters in The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning that she absolutely loves. (I know actual books, who knew?) Anyway, it didn’t take much to convince me that I HAD to read this series. Especially, when she started throwing around phrases like ‘super hawt UST’ (or unresolved sexual tension, for those of you who don’t know) cuz I love me some good UST. @TwilightCougar1 told me that I would absolutely love Jericho Barrons annndddd boy was that the understatement of the century. Cuz, I really really really fluv Jericho Barrons. He’s dark, he’s mysterious, he’s evil, he’s good, he’s protective and possessive and he’s got a body to die for and I could just go on and on. If you’re anything like me, which you probably are if you’re reading this, you will really enjoy getting to know JZB. Here is a little teaser of the plot of the first book in the series, Darkfever…

MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks... until something extraordinary happens. When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae...

I also thought you might like to see a few of my fav lines along with a pic of what I invision Jericho to look like sooooooooo....

"I want what I want and I take it."

"There's nothing I can't live with. Only things I can't live without."

"He glides toward me, in that way that barely dispaces air. A velvet shadow in the darkness."

Jerricho: "They'll try to kill you." McKayla: "Will you?" Jerricho: "Never. I'm the one who will always watch over you. Always be there to fuck you back to your senses when you need it, the one who will never let you die."

You can find out more by visiting the authors website but trust me when I say these books are addictive, mysterious, adventure filled and hawt with a capital H! So be good little h00rs and go read them…and then come back and let me know what you thought. Cuz I’ll probably just be sitting on my couch reading all my favorite parts again, and again, and again....


  1. I'm so gonna read this! All Domly and shit... hells yeah! :)

  2. If I didn't already have literally 50 books in a pile to read I would add this. I promise I will get there someday. Great write up.

  3. Oh yeah! I'm in the middle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, which is amazing btw, I could use more stories that appeal to my "passionate side" the BDB series is doing good work so far. I'm thinking The Fever series might be my next adventure.
