Between  Hell Transporter  Even In Darkness


It just figures that the love of Lindsey Water’s life isn’t alive at all, but the grim reaper, complete with a dimpled smile and Scottish accent. 

After transporting souls to heaven for the last 300 years, Aiden MacRae has all but given up on finding the one whose love will redeem him and allow him entry through the pearly gates. 

Torn between her growing attraction to Aiden and heaven’s siren song, Lindsey must learn the hard way whether love really can transcend all boundaries.

Hell Transporter

Aiden MacRae has been given a new life after being stuck transporting souls to heaven for the last three hundred years. He doesn’t know the culture, the times or the slang, but there is one thing he does know: he didn’t come forward alone. 

The master of hell has other plans for the Scottish Highlander and has sent a transporter of his own to get the deed done. Will Lindsey be able to save him or get caught in the crossfire?

Even In Darkness

I thought it was over, that all our troubles were behind us.

We had a fairytale castle wedding surrounded by family and friends. Aiden wore a dress kilt, looking so handsome it made my heart squeeze, and I floated on air in a white version of the ball gown he’d cast for me in Versailles. Flower girl, ring bearer, Scottish ceilidh afterward—check, check, and check. It was perfect.

We were supposed to live happily ever after.

But that was before I walked in to find another woman in his bed, a demon with blood red eyes who’d disguised herself as me in order to get what she wanted most: a child from a heaven transporter.

And it was in that moment—watching my entire world crumble to the ground—that I knew.

This was not over. Not by a long shot.

I am so absolutely thrilled to be a part of the blog tour celebrating the third installment in Cyndi Tefft’s Between series, Even In Darkness. Cyndi was one of the first authors to ever contact me to read her book. I fell in love with Between way back in the early days of blogging and have been swooning over Aiden MacRae ever since (you can read my review here). Even though I have not been able to read the remanding books in her series, I instantly hopped on board this blog tour because it just sounded like so much fun!

Cyndi Tefft

Cyndi Tefft lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest where the weather is overcast and rainy, much like the Highlands of Scotland. So she was right at home when she got the chance to visit Eilean Donan Castle.

A self-proclaimed Scot freak, she loved every bit about the trip to Scotland: the people, the kilts, the accents, the fish & chips, the haggis…well okay, not the haggis.

The Best of Twenty-Eleven

The year has come and gone so quickly that I can hardly believe it! It seems like just yesterday I was starting my winter semester as a college Freshman and I was trying to squeeze in every ounce of fun that I could. A ton of memories were created this past year, some bad but mostly all good, and I like to think it has been one of the best years yet. In keeping with the same format that I used last year, here are some of the best moments of 2011!

Sidenote: Almost all of these are a tie between two or more things. Sorry about that, I tried my best to narrow it down but it just wasn’t happening!

1. Best Vacation– This is definitely a tie between the Myrtle Beach vacation I took with Kati and the Myrtle Beach Vacation I took with my family a month later. The weather was gorgeous both times and I got to experience a ton of different things with each trip. I was so lucky to be able to go on two vacations back to back like that!

2. Best Concert– This one also has a tie! It is between Warped Tour 2011 and the acoustic performance by We The Kings! Warped Tour is a day filled with music awesomeness! I saw so many bands perform, got a ton of stuff signed, and I even got to talk to a few of the performers. The We The Kings acoustic performance was brilliant for so many reasons: It was acoustic, it was small, it was free, it featured my future husband, I got to put my arms around my future husband, and I even got to take a picture with my future husband. IT WAS AMAZING!

3. Best CD– This is also going to have to be a tie! We The Kings dropped their latest album this year entitled Sunshine State of Mind. The title of the album couldn’t be more perfect because I get in a sunshiney state of mind EVERY TIME I listen to their CD. So what could be the competition to such an epic CD? All the mixed CD’s I got this past year! I had a lot of friends make me CD’s and all of them were filled with awesome songs that brings a smile to my face!

4. Best New Activity– I can’t explain too many details because I have yet to send out Christmas presents to some pretty freaking lovely bloggers but I do enjoy jewelry making. It takes time and is far more expensive than I could have imagined but it is so much fun to create!

5. Best Birthday Present– Last year I got a whole new bedroom so I was wondering how anything could ever live up to something like that. The answer came in the form of a brand-new bookshelf! I was making just the one work but I was desperately in need of one and my parents luckily noticed it! I love it so freaking much!

6. Best Movies– Well I do love me some movies…and popcorn! Some of my favorites were: Breaking Dawn: Part 1, Bridesmaids, Crazy Stupid Love, The Help, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hollows: Part 2, and Footloose.

7. Best Books– Oh gosh! It was my original goal to read 100 books in 2011 but Goodreads just wouldn’t stop telling me how sucky I was at completing that goal so I changed it to 80 and I still didn’t accomplish it! However, I did squeeze in 76 books. The best ones (some 4’s and all 5 stars) are:

Sidenote: Some of the titles will be linked to my reviews and other will be linked to Goodreads since I have not yet reviewed them!

8. Best Blogging Moment– How does one even choose something like this? In the past year I have met more authors, connected with more bloggers, reviewed more books, joined more weekly features, and had the most fun than I have EVER had! This whole experience has been one joyous event after another and I have all of YOU to thank for that. I have found some of the greatest friends and most influential people (and let’s not forget they all also kick butt when it come to writing reviews!) than I could have ever imagined. I would not trade this past year for anything!

9. Best Friend(s)– It is no secret that Kati has and always will be my best friend. I talk about her awesomeness all the time. But because of recent events, I feel like I must give a shout-out to my dear friend Stacey. Her and I were running buddies in high school. You could never find two girls who hated cross-country with such a deep passion like the two of us (even though we secretly loved it!) She has been there for both Kati and I through so many things and now it’s our turn to be there for Stacey. These two girls make my days so much better and I love them for that!

10. Best Family– Well of course this goes out to my family once again but not without some complaints! Zack and Zeke aka The Brat Pack drove me absolutely INSANE this past year. Those two boys are the epitome of annoying little brothers. I love them to death but jeez louise they sure are crazy! In all honesty, I am lucky to have my family always there for me. They support me through everything and even though they make fun of me every once in a while, they always know how to make me smile!

So that’s it for my 2011! I hope you all had a great year and an even better 2012!

TGIF (29)

There once was an awesome blogger named Ginger and she decided to create a super fun feature where fellow bloggers would answer fabulous questions via blog posts every Friday. TGIF was born and we all have Miss Ginger at GReads! to thank for that! This week’s question is:

Most Popular:

What blog post has gotten the most comments/activity on your blog this year?

Oh what a fun question! I promise I am going to actually answer it BUT as some of you may or may not know, I like to take any opportunity to make fun of all the weird/odd/crazy blog stats I see every day!

-My top referer of all time is any type of search engine (Google, bing, etc.) with Twitter and GReads! being close seconds!

*double fist pumps because Twitter and Ginger’s blog are both awesome!*

-The top search term of all time used to find my blog is “Sarah Dessen New Book 2012.” I feel bad because I (one of Sarah’s biggest fans) don’t know the title of Sarah’s newest book if there even is one for 2012! “Check my mailbox” is only behind by two views. I also feel bad for these people because I do not have any information on how they can check their mailboxes but what I suggest is they open their front door, walk to the end of the driveway, and there may or may not be a box filled with lots of goodies like bills and junk mail waiting for them. It is custom to grab such goodies out of this box and carry them back inside the house. But again, this is just a suggestion.

-I am always amazed on the different things that people type in search engines to find my blog. The oddest search terms used are: Seven people have found my blog by typing in “She only had one leg,” sorry people, that wasn’t me. I was born with all proper appendages. Four people have found it by typing in “Ginger head on the beach,” well my future husband (Travis Clark) happens to be a ginger head! Ginger Heads FTW! Four people found it by “I am vegetarian and I am proud,” good for you! Another four people found it by “Little boy pissing fanatics,” I don’t even know how to respond to that! Three people were directed to my blog by typing in “Batman giant clam.” Two people found it by typing in “Michelle has finally caught wind of Tony’s betrayals,” that sucks for Tony…and Michelle! Two more found it by typing in “Ugly, boring nerd girl from high school,” I HATE you two whoever you are. And finally two people typed in “Sandy butt.” Please let it be known that is me only after going to the beach.

-The most clicks on my blog is for none other than my Goodreads account!

And now on to the good stuff! This has been a crazy year, in fact I have had more than 230 posts! All of these posts have received love in some sort of way (I truly am grateful for EVERY comment and post view). But of course there are ones that receive a little bit of extra attention. My most popular posts over the past year are…. **drumroll please**

-Top viewed post- For Fans of Sarah Dessen! (1,280 views). This makes me so happy! I was glad to see that some sort of Sarah Dessen post was the most popular one!

-Top viewed page (aside from the Home page)- About Me (612 views). What can I say? I have been told I am an extremely interesting person and I have a knack for creating About Me pages.

-Top commented post- Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop (211 comments). This was a super fun hop. I am almost certain half of those comments are from me!

-Top commented post (that is NOT a giveaway)- In My Mailbox (27) (22 comments). That was a good book week!

-Top commented post (that is NOT a giveaway/hop/meme of any sort)- Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (20 comments) THANKS ASHLEY!

If you are the unlucky few who answered no, continue reading as I will interrogate you some more!

Have you heard of the dreamy Aiden MacRae? Did you know he wears a kilt? Did you know that wearing a kilt is extremely hot (don’t deny it!)? Did you know that I would gladly be taken away by this dreamy Grim Reaper? Did you know his smooth Scottish accent is so soothing it will make your knees buckle?

Please tell me, I have at least convince someone who hasn’t read this book yet (whoever you are, you must be CRAZY) to go out and read it!

And for those of you who are chomping at the bit to read it….go look somewhere else because I am not giving it away today **insert evil laugh here** BUT , and pay attention because this is a huge BUT, I do have some super awesome news to share with you!

Miss Lindsay from The Violet Hour, created an awesome logo for all lovers of Aiden (aka Aiden’s Angels) and she did NOT stop there. She decided to up her level of awesome by several hundred points by putting this super fabulous logo on products that all Aiden’s Angels (new or old!) can enjoy.

You can now purchase a coffee cup, a t-shirt, a shot glass, and lots of other goodies with the Aiden’s Angels logo on it. To help support Cyndi Tefft and her awesome book, head on over the THIS WEBSITE to purchase lots of goodies! They are all awesome and at an extremely reasonable price!

TGIF (4)

TGIF is a fun little feature hosted at GReads! Every week we re-cap what has happened on the blog plus Ginger asks a question for us to answer. This week’s question is:

And I Quote:

What are some of your favorite book quotes?

To be honest this question scares me! It is a great question to ask most book bloggers but when I am asked what some of my favorite book quotes are, I draw a complete blank! I can remember titles, authors, characters, mythical creatures, the main character’s best friend’s little brother’s pet, the flavor of ice cream a particular character fancied, and even the name of a gas station in a book but when it comes to those special, wonderful, memorable lines of a book that can take your breath away, I cannot, for the life of me, ever remember what they are. So after a huge amount of research through some of my favorite books(aka searching through saved quotes on, I have I compiled a list of some of my favorite quotes (bear with me people)!

“Honestly, one day you will wake up and say that (“That’s not me at all”). And no matter what godforsaken mess Kallie ends up with today, she will too. And so will Tash, and everyone else who comes in here. But you’re worrying about the wrong thing. Don’t worry about wanting to change; start worrying when you don’t feel like changing anymore. And in the meantime, enjoy every version of yourself you ever meet, because not everybody who discovers their true identity likes what they find.”

-Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John

This particular quote is from one of my FAVORITE Y.A. contemporary novels. Five Flavors of Dumb is such a wonderful story of one girl’s journey of self discovery. I feel that this quote portrays the book wonderfully!

“Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.”

-Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

How could I even begin to list of favorite quotes without taking one from my favorite author? Sarah Dessen’s novels are spectacular. They are all about growing up, finding yourself, coming to terms with real life, and maybe even falling in love. This quote is from one of my favorite books by Sarah, Just Listen. I am a huge fan of books AND music so I feel that this quote fits me perfectly.

“Sometimes you met someone that changed the pattern, who wormed their way past the cracks in your heart, caulked them up, sealed themselves in, and stayed there. Sometimes they did it by insisting you meet them at every step, as Jamie had done to me. Sometimes they did it without even knowing, as I had done to Jamie long before.”

Tap & Gown by Diana Peterfreund

To say that I am obsessed with these books (Tap & Gown is the 4th and final installment of The Secret Society Girl series) is a bit of an understatement. I love each and every single book so very much. Amy grows tremendously throughout all for books and once you’ve read them, you will know how true this quote makes that statement.

“My knee radiated heat. As I watched him pull himself from the car and walk casually across the brightly lit parking lot, I thought dumb things. I will never wash my knee again. I will never wash these jeans again. I will cut the knee out of these jeans and sew a pillow to sleep on every night, just to have a molecule of him in my bed with me.”

Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols

I don’t think it is normal for one girl to fan-girl an author as much as I do to Jennifer Echols. She is beyond extraordinary. Her Y.A. romantic dramas are realistic, beautiful, heart-breaking, lovely, and magical. The romance in them is breath-taking as this quote from Going Too Far so clearly shows.

 Well there you have it, some of my favorite quotes from a few of my favorite books!

Book Review: Between by Cyndi Tefft

Title: Between (Between #1)

Author: Cyndi Tefft

Publisher: Self Published

Pages: 246 paperback

My Rating: 4/5 stars

Source: I received an e-copy of this book from author in exchange for an honest and thoughtful review

It just figures that the love of Lindsey Water’s life isn’t alive at all, but the grim reaper, complete with a dimpled smile and Scottish accent.

After transporting souls to heaven for the last 300 years, Aiden MacRae has all but given up on finding the one whose love will redeem him and allow him entry through the pearly gates.

Torn between her growing attraction to Aiden and heaven’s siren song, Lindsey must learn the hard way whether love really can transcend all boundaries. 

When I first started this book, I found myself enjoying it. That is what a book is meant for right? It was good, the characters were interesting but I wasn’t feeling that special spark. It moved at a rather quick speed at first and I found myself flipping pages trying to see what exactly I missed. However, a HUGE (and I mean HUGE, people!) twist right in the middle of the story, had me falling head over heels in love!

It starts off with the main character, Lindsey, dying in a car crash (see what I mean starting off fast? It got straight to the point!). Instead of being whisked off to heaven, Lindsey finds herself in a between world. It is there that she meets Aiden, the man in charge of getting her to heaven, leading her towards the light. However, things go astray when these two start having feelings for each other; real, falling for each other hard core feelings!

Usually I am quite irritated with the insta-love connections that a lot of paranormal books have. A love that can be found with just a simple glance from across the room has been so over-done. Between did have that insta-love thing going on but I found myself looking at it from a new perspective. Me being a person who has never experienced the L-word before wouldn’t know what it is like. Maybe some people really are destined for each other. When you see someone that you were meant to be with, maybe you just know, you get a special feeling telling you to hold on, this person could be important. It is these thoughts that popped into my brain while reading Between. Any book that can make you do that, change your thoughts on something completely, is pretty spectacular!

This is the first book that I have ever read that has dealt with primarily romance (there was paranormal-ness too and I will talk about that next) and let me tell you people, I am hooked! The romance between Aiden and Lindsey was marvelous. Aiden, a totally fabulous looking Scottish boy-by the way, I could hear his voice in my head with that accent. What girl doesn’t want a guy with a cute accent?- with a tender, kind heart falling for Lindsey, a kind, snarky, fun-spirited girl who had her whole life taken from her in the blink of an eye. The chemistry that Cyndi created between these two just flew off the pages. They really complimented each other on so many levels.

Obviously with there being a “between” world between Earth and heaven, you can tell that there are paranormal tid-bits in the story. I love the journey that I was taken on by the paranormal factors in Between. While in this between place, waiting for the special light to come, Lindsey and Aiden can spend their days at specific places and during specific memories. It is there you learn of the tragedy that strikes Aiden and his family. Or you can witness a past event that brought up memories, good and bad, for Lindsey. I love the great amount of detail and the over-all originality of this particular trait of the story. All the places that Aiden and Lindsey “visited” were so vivid. I could practically see and feel whatever they were seeing and feeling!

For fear of letting out tiny secrets that will hint to you the big twist in the middle of the story, I am going to stop this review a little short. All you need to know is that the romance in this story is beautiful! Vivid, original, and marvelous details will keep you entranced while reading Between!

Tune-In Tuesday (11)/Teaser Tuesday (8)

Tune in Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Ginger @ GReads so you should head on over and link up! It is a great way to bounce from blog to blog and discover what others are listening to! I love music but there is so much out there that I haven’t heard of before. That being said, feel free to leave a link to your Tune-In Tuesday post!

This week’s song has been a favorite of mine since 6th grade. To really understand why my love for this song came to be, I feel that I should share a certain story with you. Okay, picture me, an extremely awkward, shy, little 6th grader with one HUGE crush on a totally great guy. He was cute, nice, funny, and in my eyes, perfect. The only thing was, is he was a total rocker-guy. At this point in my life I was all about boy bands and country music so rock music had not been introduced to me. So in my attempt to seem more appealing to him I started listening to Banana 101.5, our areas “Rock Radio.” Every day when I’d get home from school I would turn that station on and do my homework while also paying close attention to all the rock songs. One particular day I heard a song that changed everything. Instead of listening to this music for some guy’s attention, I soon found myself listening to Flint’s Rock Radio Station because I actually liked their music. That is all thanks to a wonderful song titled “Scars” by a little band named Papa Roach. This song helped broaden my musical tastes so much! My ears are a little sensitive to really hardcore, rock metal, but anything close to the awesomeness of Papa Roach is just wonderful to me. Hope you enjoy!

p.s. To close out this little rendition of “Katelyn’s trip down memory lane,” I feel that I should state that I did not win the heart of said rocker-guy….which is okay because he is kind of freaky now!

Papa Roach: Scars

Now for the Teaser Tuesday part of this post! This awesome meme is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Teaser Tuesday asks you to take the book you are reading, flip it to a random page, and share two sentences (no spoilers though!). Sounds easy enough, right? Well it is, plus it is a great way to see what others are reading!

This week I am currently reading to great novels! I recently received Between by Cyndi Tefft and The Childe by C.A. Kunz. I am really enjoying both of these books! Hope you like the teasers!

“I don’t know how much time we’ve got, but I love you this moment and I’ll love you forever. The angel promised that love would redeem me and I don’t know how, but I know that it will. So I will not count the days if you’ll promise me the same my love.”

Between by Cyndi Tefft, pg. 61 (e-book version)

“Get a grip Cat. First I have a scary as hell dream and now there’s a large bird that chases off dark figures. Next I bet I’ll start seeing werewolves and vampires.”

The Childe by C.A. Kunz, pg. 39

In My Mailbox (11)

IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It is a way for book bloggers to post what they have received for review, borrowed from a friend, bought at the bookstore, or picked up at the library.  I have been a MAJOR slacker on my blog this past month so these books are ones that I have actually received over the past few weeks!

For Review:

Vision by Beth Elisa Harris

Summary: Nighttime haunts Layla and dark secrets beckon to a mysterious island where a strange woman holds the answers.

Layla is a Clear wanted by Bane for a deadly game. Ancestors before her didn’t survive, and the only way for her to survive, is to open her heart…and choose love…before death closes in.

Layla arrives in Cambridge, England, a sixteen year-old high school student from Portland, Oregon, to attend Sixth College. Everything in her life is going according to plan. But she soon discovers no one in her life are who they seem, not even her family. Her Clear abilities that allow to read thoughts are stifled, and she becomes suspicious of those around her.

But there are reasons why Layla’s abilities are blocked, and only after a dangerous encounter does she begin to uncover the truth about the new people in her life, her past and family secrets, while Bane plot to use her as a pawn for world destruction.

My Thoughts: I have already read this & the review plus an interview will be up shortly! It is an excellent read full of romance with a little bit of a paranormal twist.

Dream Smashers by Angela Carlie

Summary: Sixteen-year-old Autumn has spent her entire life worrying about others. Her ailing grandma, meth-addicted mom, and a best friend who is always in trouble. She’s spent the last few years attempting to worry less, to be carefree, without success.

Enter Evan, whose radiant attitude is an Autumn magnet. With Evan at her side, Autumn’s able to let some of her worries go as they trudge through life’s difficulties and fall for each other in the process.

A girl who no longer wants to care and a boy who cares enough for the both of them, Dream Smashers is a love story, but most of all, it’s about letting go.

My Thoughts: Another book that I have already read and it is also amazing! It is a deep, sad, yet hopeful novel. The characters are wonderfully written and you will be rooting for them from beginning to end!

Between by Cyndi Tefft

Summary: It just figures that the love of Lindsey Water’s life isn’t alive at all, but the grim reaper, complete with a dimpled smile and Scottish accent.

After transporting souls to heaven for the last 300 years, Aiden MacRae has all but given up on finding the one whose love will redeem him and allow him entry through the pearly gates.

Torn between her growing attraction to Aiden and heaven’s siren song, Lindsey must learn the hard way whether love really can transcend all boundaries.

My Thoughts: I haven’t read this yet but it sounds wonderful! A story about the grim reaper falling in love; I can’t wait to read it!


Entwined by Heather Dixon

Summary:  Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it’s taken away. All of it.

The Keeper understands. He’s trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.

Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.

But there is a cost.

The Keeper likes to keep things.

Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.

My Thoughts: First thanks to whoever I won this from! I am so, extremely sorry for forgetting the name but I won this a month ago and am drawing a complete blank! I’m halfway through this and I am just adoring it. Based off of the fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses, it holds all the wonderful characteristics that a fairy tale should. I can’t wait to finish it!

Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren

Summary: Lisa Tawn Bergren’s new YA series, River of Time, is romantic, historical fiction in which the plucky heroine doesn’t have to fear a vampire’s bite but must still fight for her life.

In Waterfall, American teenager Gabi Betarrini accidentally finds herself in Fourteenth-Century Italy . . . Knights. Swords. Horses. Armor. And Italian hotties. Most American teens want an Italian vacation, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds… until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the Fourteenth Century and in the middle of a fierce battle between knights bent on killing one another.

My Thoughts: This book sounds absolutely wonderful! History, Italy, and hot guys is SOOO up my alley. I have a feeling that I am really going to love this book. Thanks to Shannon at Stalking The Bookshelf & Lisa T. Bergren for this lovely signed & personalized book!
