Chapters 5-8 Discussion:
1) In what is a make you blush, steamy scene in the book- Chapter 5 has Ethan and Merit sharing a few hot moments after Merit's hunger strikes...that is until Ethan becomes a total cad! What do you think of him so far? Strong, masterful vampire, conceited playboy.....lover boy in disguise?

I loved that scene between Ethan and Merit. He just had to be a douche afterward. I think he is a lover boy in disguise. He has moments where I want to punch him, but I think it makes him more interesting. If that makes sense. I must admit the scenes between Merit and Morgan were amazing. I am falling for him too. There was so much chemistry between them and the dialogue between made me smile. I honestly will be happy with either choice.

2. Merit and Mallory begin some major training in these next few chapters, resulting in cool Katana Sword facts and Ninja moves. What is the most physically challenging or adrenaline fueled event/activity you have participated in?

We use to have playground contest in elementary school. I was very competitive even though we were playing for silly little toys. Also in high school, our gym teacher had a thing if you can run a mile without stopping, you can skip dressup when you wanted. I did it twice, couldn't believe my legs and lungs held out that long Then again I hated gym, so I was looking for any excuse.

3. Mallory and Catcher have sparks so intense they almost fly off the page.....what do you think of this cozy couple? Did you like the insta-love between them? Do they add to the story?

I think it adds a lot to the story.  I was hoping we get some love story between them. Catcher is amazing and hot as hell. I love the way how him and Mallory are always arguing. Their relationship is exactly what I expected from Merit and Ethan. Well, I mean it could be that way. Still, I like it. I want more from them as well.

4. Lets talk Bff's....Mallory is hands down a terrific friend to Merit, the girls relationship is real, down to earth and fun....not to mention hysterical. What is your favorite memory or favorite thing to do with your bff? Feel free to share pics!

I remember me and my friend Ashley going to Adventure Landing years ago. Only kids who were on honor roll got to go. We had such a blast, specifically during go cart. We weren't suppose to hit each other, but we still did any way. And don't get me started on laser tag. Oh I killed at that. I wish I had pictures, but I was in middle school and digital cameras weren't out quite yet.

5. Things are starting to heat up in the mystery department...the set up at Red, Morgan's flirty appearance.... Catchers vague correlation day gets closer for Merit do you think someone is out to get her...or maybe recruit her to another house? Or PS- feed her some more food...because goodnight this girl likes to eat!!!

I think someone is targeting girls like her. All the girls that have died all are tall, dark hair and blue eyes. But as I said, I really love Morgan. And yes, I do find it a little suspicious, but this is wishful thinking here. Don't ruin it for me. Catcher knows a lot and I don't know why he holds back information. But I have a feeling it is a test for her. Maybe something between him and Ethan to test out. I don't know about the recruiting though. After what happened at the club, they didn't seem like they wanted to be anywhere near Merit and her friends. She is always eating. Loved that epic sandwich her and Morgan made, that was good moment. But yes, the mystery is definitely building and I can't wait to see what is next. I have been thinking about it all day. I need to find out now.

  1. I also often want to punch Ethan in the face, but then sometimes he can be so friggin hot and my hand unclenches from its fist-like shape and just have to love him a little:) So glad you love Mallory and Catcher too! They're two of my favorite characters:)

  2. ohmygosh you play laser-tag? Thats awesome! I loved your answer for five, I never even thought of all the girls looking similar...

    Great answers this week!

  3. I'm really curious about how you will feel about Morgan as you finish the book and if you continue reading the series. My thoughts about him definitely changed.

    Thanks for joining us!

  4. Yay! I'm falling in love with Morgan too! I'm glad I'm not the only one. I really think he's a better choice for Merit.

    And I love playing Laser Tag with my friends. So much fun, every time!

  5. Ooo... I just thought of something while reading your answer to 5. What if the 1st girl was a case of mistaken identity? Maybe they thought that 1st girl was Merit when it/he/she/them attacked.... hmm..

  6. Oh yes I forgot about that epic sandwich she and Morgan whipped up. Chips on top sounded delish! Don't you love that these vampires eat? That scene in the kitchen where Merit is eating microwaved blood and pasta. Too funny!
    I am still on the fence on Ethan, I like him but don't trust him!

  7. @Jenny - Ethan is hot as hell and his arrogance makes me laugh sometimes because Merit throws it back in his face. They really do complete each other LOL! Totally with you about Catcher and Mallory. They are two of my favorites as well. Mallory is a great best friend and Catcher is mean, but I can tell he is lovable.

    @Tina - Thank you. I haven't played in a while though. I miss it so much LOL! Glad you liked my answer to number 5, I really think that plays a part in all of this LOL!

    @Rummanah - Oh come on, don;t ruin the fantasy for me LOL! I am suspicious, but dammit, he is just too cute. I am definitely continuing this series for sure. I am loving this.

    @Missie - Thank you! I would be happy with him or Ethan, they are both very different, but I love them both. I think Morgan and merit have more sparks between them, but as everyone is saying, be cautious. How can you not love laser tag. I should get back to that soon LOL!

    @Christy - Ooooh, I like your thinking. Good call. That is definitely a possibility. I like that, will keep that one in mind. Thanks hon :)

    @Heidi - I loved that sandwich they made, so amazing. I wish I could eat like a vampire and I am so with you, it is awesome they can eat. I love that scene with the blood and pasta. I also love the bloody bloody mary LMAO! I know what you mean about Ethan, but I think he has his reasons. I can't just write him off LOL!

    Thank you all for the awesome comments :)

  8. I loved Morgan, only if he didn't act like a douche the first time. But after the apology he did on his knees I think that makes it up ;)


Due to the daily spam comments I have been getting lately and to avoid the annoying word verification, Anonymous comments are no more. I do not want bargains on bags, watches, jerseys, boots and other crap. Geez, they could at least spam me with book and movie stuff, I would be somewhat interested LOL! Thank you :D
