Skyla learns that sometimes in life, and in love, things aren’t always what they seem.
Toxic (Celestra #7 Part One) Review
I loved this book was so intense, and made me scared for my favorite characters. I just love Marshall. I know I can’t be the only one. I still am a total Logan fan. Gage, he is one I just can’t trust completely, though I do more after this book ended. I still like Marhall the best, he is one that never has lied to her, and always is thinking of what’s best for her (him, lol) and truly cares for Skyla. I had fun reading this book, and can’t wait to pick up Toxic part two. I had waited to read part one, until two was out so I can have it on hand. Now of course I will hate the wait for book 8.
If you already have not read this series, it’s a great one to start. I know its a lot of books, but they are fast easy reads. Meaning on the edge of your seat, and can’t put it down. Lol. Start with book one Ethereal (it’s been free on Kindle at Amazon for awhile) and then go from there.
I loved how we got to see Cooper from Ephemeral in this book. I was NOT happy to see Wesley and what he does to Skyla. Let’s just say, I now know where he got his abilities in Ephemeral. (It’s the Countance series, new one; it ties in with this series)
I won’t say much about this, as it’s not good to spoil anything. Just saying this series just gets better and better.
5 out f 5 stars. Go get it, it’s great!!
Here is a small parts that I liked a lot, I really like Marshall for some reason, not really anything to spoil In them:
“He found me just after midnight and told me about the stone, how the Pretty One and you were pinned with a blade. When I informed him there wasn’t a single thing I could do to alleviate your discomfort, he dropped to his knees. The look of grief on the poor boy’s face alerted me to something.”“What’s that?” I stare up at Marshall’s fiery eyes. Each their own unique shade of burgundy.“He feels just as strongly for you as I do.” Marshall focuses his gaze straight ahead. The fireplace roars to life without provocation. It brands the room in colors pink and gold. “I thought I understood love, knew the lay of the land—all of its inroads.” He sighs hard, landing a soft kiss to my temple. “I knew nothing of it until I met you, Skyla. You’ve redefined love for me. It’s sacred—anointed with the highest regard and blessing.”I’ve never heard words like that from Marshall. His placating sexuality, his wry wit and humor are all gone, nothing but the naked form of a man underneath, declaring his love for me. Our eyes lock. A strong magnetic pull lures me to his lips, and everything in me longs for a kiss.
Here is another Part with Skyla and Marshall, just had to share, as it had me laughing so hard. Lol
It’s me, Skyla. Do try to focus on the suitor at hand. Marshall suggests while pleasuring me with a kiss I won’t soon forget.So this is what it would be like to love Marshall—his bold affection—the intense wave of pleasure emanating from his being. It’s heaven like this with him. I could more than forget my troubles if only for a little while. Maybe what I really need is to spend a few good hours under Marshall’s lustful supervision, maybe that’s how I’ll repair my shattered heart. Marshall would never refute my efforts and make me wait until the end of the faction war like Logan. Marshall would take me right now on this vibrating donkey, if I let him.A vision appears, a blinding pain surges throughout my body, and I bear down hard.“You can do this,” a voice calls from behind. “Push, Skyla—push.”I turn ever so slightly and see the face of the man rooting me on—it’s Marshall panting out the beginnings of a smile as he looks down over me and the vision fades to black.I jump off him as though he were on fire.Dear God. I am going to get knocked up by my math teacher.
Toxic Part 2 Review
Wow, this was a heck of a ride, of emotions, action, some blood and gore (you know, the facton war) we get some major sadness in this one, and great losses too.
I don’t want to spoil anything, but will say, its amazing, these books just get better and better, but you need to read them all or you would be so lost, it’s an ongoing story for sure.
Skyla has some decisions to make and sacrifices too. I felt so connected too.
I still love Marshall, just can’t help it. To me he is the one who has been there all along for Skyla.
I can’t believe what a huge cliffhanger this book ended one. What is that all about, man! I need the next book NOW.
We get some questions answered, but many more new questions too. I was brought to tears a few times, and was on an emotional rollercoaster as well. Also laughed outloud many times, as Skyla cracks me up, especially with Marshall.
I highly recommend this whole series, and will leave you with some great teasers. 5 out of 5 stars for sure.
(Skyla and Marshall)
“You, my dear kitten, are impossibly titillating.”I glance over at Marshall, lacking the energy to properly roll my eyes. I think the expression “one-track mind” was literally derived from him.“I don’t know what the hell you just said, but it sounds disastrous.” My eyelids sear themselves shut. Normally, I wouldn’t fight my body on the much-needed snooze-fest its trying to procure, but I feel rather exposed spread over the length of Marshall’s couch and he’s gearing up to pounce. I can feel it.
And this in same scene page later (Skyla and Marshall)
Marshall gazes down at me with a content look on his face. I reach up and touch my hand to his cheek.“You really are a good listener, you know that?”He loses himself while grazing over my body with those sun-scorched eyes, so I place my hand over his to listen in on his private musings. Usually, he can throw them at me at a distance, which is his way of showing off his Sector prowess, but for now, he’s lost in lust, too far gone to throw anything coherent my way. My mouth desires to trace out the landscape of her every curve. I crave to have her, right down to her tiny beautiful feet. How I yearn for the moment she graces my chambers night after luscious night with all of the affection we can afford. We’ll charge the air with our ferocity. I can almost feel her skin burning against mine, the singe of her thighs smoothing over me as I make her my wife with a pronounced finality.And there’s that.“I can hear you,” I say.A smile rides up his cheek. “Though the deep drink of our love tarry—wait for it.”
(Skyla and Marshall)
“You know…” I readjust my neck over his lap. “Sometimes I feel as if I’m all alone.”“You have me.” His serious eyes penetrate mine. “For the rest of your days, I will be here for you—someone to trust, to lean on—to have and to hold from this day on.”Marshall is a thing of beauty both inside and out. I reach up and touch my fingers to his lips. Somebody is going to be very lucky to love him fully one day.“Those sounded an awful lot like wedding vows,” I whisper.“You will be everything to me, Skyla. A lover…” He kisses a finger. “A friend…” He kisses the tip of another. “A spouse…” He pushes my finger into his hot mouth and I pluck it out. “Where shall we spend our honeymoon?” He goes right there without provocation.
(Skyla, Logan, and Gage)
A pair of arms circle around my waist, a kiss is dropped on my cheek from behind. It can’t be Marshall because I don’t feel like I’ve been assaulted by a human vibrator. It feels genuine, born of love and wanting, a hint of the future locked in its warmth.Logan appears in front of me and waves a pair of condoms in the air.“Ambitious,” I say.“House special.” A not-so-guilty smile blooms on his face.Gage flicks the prophylactics away before holding up a pair of his own with a lust-born grin.“So what are you guys going to do with them?” I ask, slightly perturbed that both Olivers dare approach me with glorified water balloons, and on this the very same eve.
