    It's not that there was anything particularly wrong with Kindling The Moon It's well written well paced and reasonably readable There was the odd typo or spelling mistake or missing punctuation but I can live with thatBut it was rather like an unfortunately boring date You know how it is You go to a bar together and all they want to do is talk about body fluids and how they power magical spells They seem like a perfectly nice book But there's nothing really special there No spark no chemistry And talking about no chemistry I just did not feel the sizzle between the two main characters At one point they were kissing and he stuck his finger down her panties and I felt like I was reading a text book I felt nothing Maybe this is because Lon didn't feel like someone I would ever go for He's uite a bit older than Cady at 42 for her 25 and he has a moustache I really struggled to feel the attraction Around the 60% mark my interest started to wane and by the 80% mark it was pretty much goneThis date is over alas but I'll bear the fond memories of Cady's parent's sex magic for a long long time

    45 StarsArcadia “Cady” Bell has hid her identity since the age of seventeen when she and her parents faked their deaths Her parents were accused of the brutal murders of three rival occultists and left the states soon after the charge leaving Cady on her own to finish school and get on with her life Now seven years later she’s a talented magician in her own right and part owner of a popular bar The Tambuku Tiki Lounge that caters to Earthbounds demons who blend into human society in Morella a little town bordering Big Sur When her parents are spotted in Texas very much alive speculation arises that Cady might also be alive This unfortunately brings the unwanted attention of the Luxe Order a magical society intent on capturing her parents and bringing them to justice The Luxe Order gives her an ultimatum turn her parents in or pay for the murders with her own life Now Cady must use her magic to find out the real killer and clear her parent’s name In pursuit of the truth with the clock ticking Cady must rely on Lon Bulter’s assistance a famous reclusive photographer who also happens to be an Earthbound with a wealth of information on demonic history He’s gruff arrogant and even though he’s uite a bit older he’s very sexy Cady is smart and funny and just coming into her powers discovering what she’s capable of and I do so love a kick ass lead The romance between her and Lon is all kinds of hot Lon’s mature a bit broody and economical with words for sure but he knows what he wants out of life and doesn’t play games A breath of fresh air Jupe Lon’s teenage son is sure to win you over with his lack of a filter whatever thought comes up in his brain exits his mouth in short order He’s high energy hilarious and has a big heart Like with most Urban Fantasy series’ it took a little time to settle into the world of Arcadia Bell but it’s worth the little bit of patience it takes to hook you I’ve read Jenn Bennett’s Roaring Twenties series so I already knew and adored her writing Her signature clever humor and steamy sexy times are present in Arcadia Bell along with plenty of action and a few twists that will keep you glued to the pages right to the end So far I’m enjoying this series even than Ms Bennett’s previous one I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Cady Lon and Jupe next While this story wraps up nicely there are uestions about Cady’s past and abilities I’m sure we’ll get answers on in the installments to come

    45 stars This was great Several other reviewers of this book have mentioned that it feels ‘fresh’ in a very congested field of urban fantasy And I have to agree The world building was seamless a complex reality but simply explained I really enjoyed the relationship between Arcadia and Lon and of course Jupe Well written and flowing no pacing issues here I’m looking forward to the rest of the series already sad it only has 4 booksRecommended

    Then I told Lon the first honest thing that came to mind I've kissed an earthbound but I've never kissed a man with a mustache Wow This book cast a spell on me that had me glued from the first page Kindling The Moon was a fantastic start to a new Urban Fantasy series with plenty of romance and sexual tension to satisfy us Paranormal Romance lovers as well This uniue and imaginative world built by Jenn Bennett is so magically constructed that its like nothing I've ever read before Arcadia Bell lives in a world that consists of Demons adorning Halos and Magicians and Sexual potions Oh My Meet Arcadia Bell a compelling twenty five year old feisty very lovable powerful Magician with a silver Halo to match her artistically talented skills while slangin shots at the local paranormal friendly bar she co owns She's been living alone under her alias Arcadia Bell for seven years honing her skills since her parents faked their death to escape charges of the murders of other powerful occultist While secretly desiring a closer relationship with her parents she suddenly catches a news story of WANTED serial killer fugitives thought dead by society have now resurfaced ALIVEwith anxiety filling her senses she discovers her parents while living in exile have had their cover blown Her only chance of survival is to find and summon the demon responsible for the murders enabling the demon to reveal the magician guilty of the ordered murders while inadvertently exonerating her parents of the devastating charges of first degree cold blooded murder Throughout this book I found myself tagging along beside Arcadia on an intense task of proving her parents innocence and saving her own life in the process Father Carrow an honest friend of Arcadia has offered to help Arcadia locate this elusive Aethyric demon through the assistance of an Earthbound demon Only a powerful magician like Arcadia can summon the Aethyric demon using proper rituals and seals Through the help of Father Carrow's friend Lon Butler an Earthbound demon and very lustworthy with a delightfully experienced skill for very sensual sexual spells as well as a secret knack shared laterHe looked at me challengingly with his arms crossed over his chest Don't think I can arouse you? I froze Maybe he was jokingOr is it that you're afraid you can't arouse me?  Never have I had so many Fantasies daydreams of a male character wondering just what that Demon Licious mustache really does feel like when Arcadia kissed it; What I loved about Lon was his self confidence Arrogance masculinity power protective and Don't Fk with me attitude I glanced at Lon and nodded He lowered his gun and spoke to him in a low rational voice I wanted you to know what she could do Don't look for don't ask about her Don't even think about her If I find out that you have I'll come back and I damn well won't be happy That goes for my kid too His gaze captured Spooner's Were not afraid of you but you should be afraid of us One of my favorite characters was Lon's son Jupiter or most recognizably known as Jupe and he's thirteen years old and reminded me of the cutest puppy dog that follows you everywhere I found myself looking forward to scenes with Jupe He was smart spunky witty overwhelming charismatic and very mature for his ripe old age of thirteen LOL I'm looking forward to lots of Jupe in the next Arcadia Bell novel because he wa beyond adorable what? Tomorrow? Happy birthday The big twenty six huh? Twenty five I corrected without thinking I thought you were already twenty five? That's what my dad told me when I asked himHe cocked an eyebrow at me like he'd just discovered some Zakinthos secret then mumbled Talk about cradle robbing I absolutly Loved Loved Loved this wonderfully written new series If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Arcadia Lon Jupe Mr Piggy the reason behind my new obsession with owning a hedgehog Priya and all Arcadia's other friends then you must read this now This book was an easy 5 stars and my only dissapointment is that 2012 is too far away for the next installment Amen to that Like what you see here check out of my reviews at

    New authors have it tough and that's the plain hard fact not only do they have to bring something fresh and new to the table but in a growing genre like UF you gotta bring in your top gun and Jenn Bennett brings it ten fold with flags waving and gun blazing with Kindling the Moon I was happily surprised in how much I loved and enjoyed this book the pace and story were very easy to follow along with a great world building and most of all LON RAWR In UF you want the perfect balance in your lead someone not perfect but can kick ass when the time comes and someone to relate to on some level while holding and pushing the story along Arcadia Cady Bell is that perfect blend On the run and in hiding Cady has been living in hiding when her parents were accused of murder A bar ownerbartender of a Tiki Bar that cater to the Earthbound demons whom are part human and demon Cady has been enjoying her life but still worries about her parents as she herself learns to grow stronger as a magemagician When word comes that her parents are in danger then before and it's up to Cady to save them and find the true killer before Cady stands in for the crime Cady's not perfect know it all but she knows her magic and learns and plans ahead but not without side effects This was another big bonus I loved about the book and Cady that magic isn't used without causing some big or small side effect When Cady needs leads and help she turns to a Earthbound Father Callow who refers her to a strong Earthbound Lon Butler Lon be still my beating heart swoon comes across as one expressionless cool guy whom has a hard time talking and comes across a tad closed off but with great humor when he opens up but a guy described as a pirate no less swoons again whom seems to have alot of knowledge and becomes a partner of for Cady as they try to figure out whom the killer is There is a big age gap between Cady and Lon May December 25 42 The author pulled it off so smoothly that even the age gap while comes up between the characters like them it's like no big deal also perhaps after reading about Vampires and Werewolves that have even greater age gaps between years of the leads this is small beanswhen a something that could have turned into one of those big mis I hate in books Lon just shines bright a lot in my eyes when he takes the blame where it belongs and apologizes and again when Lon mentions a Connection of maybe when Cady and him first meet and freely admits of wanting to get into her pants it came across as attraction as they first grow into the relationship then just jumping into bed with one another And let's not forget to mention Jupe Lon's hyper fun young teenager son whom you just want to gobble up Where Lon is cool and calm like a river Jupe is like a fun whirlwind The story has an nice breezy feeling with some big action pieces and a nice romance sub plot that doesn't hinder the story but gives the characters a chance to grow and trust in one another as they gather bits of the puzzle The world has lots of room to grow and learning about the mages and the types of Earthbounds and the effects of Cady's own hidden powers There is some big twists and turns that if your paying attention can figure out pretty much wants going on but still came off somewhat surprising in the end There's alot of room for this series to grow and Lon to love that this book uickly became a keeper for me and a Jenn Bennett became a new author I'll be on the look out for

    35 PotentialThis series has potentialIt wasn't the best first book I've ever read and well can't say I loved it too much but great things could come from this seriesI like the MC Not love but like She seems a bit of an idiot at times but we all have out moments What I really appreciate though is that it's realistic OK as realistic as a PNR can be but it seems realSo yes definitely worth a try

    Holiday season is Urban Fantasy season for me don't know what that says about me but Yay New series Probably 35? Yeah I'll say 35 stars Pretty into it DESPITE it's male lead having my least favorite descriptor of all time blonde mustache Whyyyyyyy And the insistence on calling it a mustache when facial hair was involved on the chin too Total record scratch every time My brain automatically went James Franco pornstache when it was actually Johnny Depp facial hair Like how in my hypothetical examples I still pretend that it's not blonde? Good news is by the end of the book I have trained myself for the seuel Speaking of whichoff to read the next one

    Posted at the Moon is the first book in Jenn Bennett’s Arcadia Bell series There was a little bit of buzz surrounding this book a little while back I saw the cover and thought “wow stunning colors” and read the blurb It sounded pretty interesting So on a whim I reuested it I was happy when the delivery man arrived at my door with it and was even excited when I started reading it because it was a good read from the very beginningArcadia is a very likable character She is human only ‘special’ She co owns a bar that tends mostly to Earthbounds demons that you guessed it live on Earth and who are essentially human except for their ‘knack’ – and they have halos a pretty neat detail She is also a magician with a strong talent for summoning the creepy demons that live on another plane She has not had the easiest of life being in hiding for most of it But even with that she does not act like a victim I really liked that about her She is clever sassy and strong but not without her vulnerabilities She has a uick wit and a kind heart She was a lot of fun to read and I am actually looking forward to reading of her in future booksArcadia is very busy in Kindling the Moon Not only does she have to work at her bar but she also has to find evidence to prove her parents’ innocence summon demons send some imps back to where they came from try some new spells run away from crazy magicians and from rival magical societies run away from crazy drunk demon freaks get captured by crazy villains get free from crazy villains deep breath and that’s not even all of it Yup she’s one busy gal Oh and she has to make out a few times with Lon Poor Arcadia – no not reallyWhen Arcadia is introduced to Lon she uickly sees him as her only hope to clear her parents’ name and to achieve her goal of getting her family back and of having to stop hiding Lon He is described as being in his early forties with brown hair to his shoulders and a ‘pirate’ mustache and beard line in the center of his chin I totally pictured him as Johnny Depp with slightly lighter hair – YUM I liked him from the moment we meet him Smart sexy as hell grounded loyaland an Earthbound I won’t tell you what his knack is you’ll have to read this book to find out but I will tell you it adds to his and Arcadia’s relationship It tests it and ultimately I found it made it stronger It upped the amount of trust she had to give himI want to uickly talk about Jupe Jupe is Lon’s thirteen year old son and he is a fun read Always talking really sweet and hyper to the max he’s easy to like Again he adds an extra element to Arcadia and Lon’s relationship And all of these things help make their coming together exciting and believableThe story in this book was really good Very well told Twists and turns you are in for a ride It’s action but not exhausting to read action It’s the good kind – the kind where just when you think things are figured out you find out they aren’t and that there is another step to take care of It never gets annoying though it just makes it fun And the magic in this book is cool It’s well explained and very visually describedKindling the Moon is an excellent Urban Fantasy tale A debut book that doesn’t have that ‘debut feel’ The pace is fantastic the lead characters are charming the villains are unexpected and cre epy the world is neat and the chemistry between Arcadia and Lon is off the charts I am very excited about this series and I hope you will give this book a try I really enjoyed it – all of it It’s definitely worth a read

    Overall Bennett has an engaging voice and while I could certainly see a lot of people enjoying this unfortunately it didn't really work for mePlot synopsis When her supposedly dead parents rud to have murdered several magicians 7 years before show up on the evening news Arcadia has two weeks to clear her parents' names before they or she are killed by the Luxe Order She drafts Lon a demonologist to help her find the demon who knows who the real murderer isThe world building features magicians Earthside demons demons who are native to Earth and coexist with full humans who don't know about the magical creatures among them and Aetheric demons who have to be summoned to come to Earth There's a lot of exposition at the beginning but it's pretty smoothly doneThe plot starts off well paced fast during action scenes and slower during relationship building scenes Then Cady and Lon start flirting and it gets a little weird Like when Cady who has about a week left to save her parents' lives and knows that people are actively trying to kill her decides to take Lon's teenage son on a not date to see a movie How is that a good idea? By the end I was still waiting for them to do some actual investigative work; the way they got the answers they needed made me really want to re read Diana Rowland or Linda Robertson or something substantialThe characters are hmm I liked Jupe Lon's son and I kind of like Lon but Cady sometimes did things that didn't make sense to me The secondary characters were a little weird sometimes too although I did like Riley she plays a villain but she's pretty entertaining and far astute than Cady Anyway problems I had1 Kar Yee Cady's business partner and best friend since college supposedly got US citizenship by getting married and subseuently divorced while in the US on a student visa I'm sorry but that timeline and seuence of events doesn't really make sense It's not a major thing but it was one of many huh? moments that pulled me out of the story2 Cady is strangely antagonistic toward Lon at their first meeting when she has to ask for a great deal of help from him on a very short timeline Later after he drugs her and gets her to reveal secrets about herself that could get her killed she becomes strangely subservient Not in a he has secrets about me that could destroy my life so I need to make nice sort of way but in a he's hot so I can trust this guy I met two days ago sort of way I mean I know everyone has different triggers but I generally have a pretty long fuse and even I'd be tempted to go all WWE Smackdown on a guy who drugged me even if I did need his help Not that I think that would have been a good tactical decision but she didn't seem at all upset3 I like romance in my UF don't get me wrong but Lon is in his 40s and Cady is mid 20s A twenty year experience gap is no small thing and Cady isn't exactly the most mature 25 year old I've ever encountered On the other hand if there'd been a 200 year age difference I wouldn't have blinked so shrug4 When Cady and Lon were in scenes together I kind of wanted to smack them both in the head and tell them to focus Imminent danger remember?There was other stuff that bugged me too but you get the point I kind of wish there hadn't been a love interest since that's when everything in the story really started to go sideways for me
