Review: Dog Eat Dog World: Limited Edition Bundle by Hailey Edwards

Review: Dog Eat Dog World: Limited Edition Bundle by Hailey Edwards Dog Eat Dog World: Limited Edition Bundle Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It’s no secret how much I adore the Black Dog Universe. I gush over them every chance I get. If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, Hailey Edwards has released a LIMITED EDITION bundle with every previously released story (except Over the Moon, Gemini #6, the upcoming title due out this summer), including the shorts she’s had in other collections. And I’VE READ THEM ALL…now you can, too! Below are some quickie comments for the short stories in the collection I hadn’t reviewed and a complete reading order—with linked reviews—appears below...

Review: F*ck Club: Con by Shiloh Walker

Review:  F*ck Club: Con by Shiloh Walker F*ck Club: Con Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: If you haven’t read Riley’s book, get on that. It sets up the premise for the series wonderfully. But, here’s what’s going on. Riley & Con are male escorts…with benefits. Their friend, Shame, was part of the operation. Riley concocted this business to make ends meet when he took guardianship of his two younger siblings when their parents died in a car crash as he built up their legit business, a bar. When their sketchy business fell under scrutiny of law enforcement—and Riley had a love interest come into his life (again)—the F*ck Club disbanded...

Review: Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey

Review: Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey Too Hard to Forget Author: Tessa Bailey Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I may have devoured Peggy’s story in one sitting. I may have actually re-read parts, too. When reading the Romancing the Clarksons series by Tessa Bailey, I’m entranced by the familial connection, the depth of the characters, and the build up to the next book, Too Beautiful to Break—Belmont & Sage’s book. While we’re three-deep in the series already, if one were to jump in right here, there’s some lost backstory and outcomes for two other siblings—and the buildup to the final title in the series—but it could be read on its own. Readers...

Review: Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy

Review: Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy Midnight Target Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: **blinks** Um. What just happened here? Readers of the Killer Instincts series are well aware of the bromance between Boston and Sully, and the super crappy stuff that happened to Sully. If you haven’t read the entire series, you really need to start from the beginning to appreciate all the careful planning that went into the series arc, the character development—and breaking down of characters—that went into writing every single book in the series. But, hey. This book is mainly about Cate and Ash, right? NOPE. Just get that notion right out of your head. This...

Review: Midnight Rescue by Elle Kennedy

Review: Midnight Rescue by Elle Kennedy Midnight Rescue Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: So. I missed reading the first book in the series. You guys ever do that? Know what’s cool, though? I didn’t miss not reading the first book, mostly—because Ms. Kennedy slips in these little reminders about what happened when it’s important. I really like this because sometimes I forget the important details because I don’t think they’ll BE important, which makes Kennedy a fabulous storyteller. I just finished reading the last book in the Killer Instincts series and Jen brought up that I hadn’t read/reviewed the first one, so here we are! There was one thing...

Review: By Her Touch by Adriana Anders

Review: By Her Touch by Adriana Anders By Her Touch Author: Adriana Anders Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I’m an ink junkie. Anyone that knows me will tell you that. From the time I was old enough to appreciate tattoos as art, I’d wanted one of my own. I wasn’t able to get my first until around the time I’d turned forty, and now I have…a lot. ☺ They tell a story of who I have been, who I am, and who I will be. So, when I had the opportunity to read the first title of the Blank Canvas series by Adriana Anders—Under Her Skin—I jumped at the chance. I wasn’t disappointed....

Review: His Custody by Tamsen Parker

Review: His Custody by Tamsen Parker His Custody Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I don’t even know where to start. I have to admit I may have had a seriously uneasy feeling at the beginning of this story—until about the halfway mark. But, I trust Tamsen Parker to deliver a deep, thoughtful read that pushes me past my personal limits. And, this title **really** pushed me for a plethora of reasons. There’s a huge age discrepancy between Keyne (pronounced Cain, like Cain & Abel) and Jasper. That isn’t a problem for me, normally. I love me a good May-December romance. This title falls more under the barely legal, though....

Review: Haunting Highland House by Kathryn Hills

Review: Haunting Highland House by Kathryn Hills Haunting Highland House Author: Kathryn Hills Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Wait. What just happened here? Kathryn Hills is a new-to-me author and this is her debut novel If you adore well-written prose that’s descriptive and not over-done, she should be on your TBR. Her voice—and that of her characters—captivated me, and kept me entrenched in the story. Bonus points for distracting me from The Walking Dead. It seems like there’d be a lot going on, what with the whole ghost thing and the time travel thing. Seems like it’d be easy to gloss over things, or have aspects underdeveloped. TOTALLY not the case here. There...

Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders Under Her Skin Author: Adriana Anders Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Here’s what I know after reading Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders. Gimme. More. Thoughtful, well-developed characters with a wonderfully paced arc drove me through the entire book. I loved Uma. For reasons. Um. And this one needs a trigger warning for domestic abuse—mostly the verbal/emotional kind, but there’s physical too. And that b@stard was twisted. But…she is fierce, feisty, and is going to be a difficult character to forget. I loved Ivan because he’s not the typical alpha male we traditionally see in contemporary romance. As his story unraveled, I was increasingly drawn into...

Review: Wolf at the Door by Hailey Edwards

Review: Wolf at the Door by Hailey Edwards Wolf at the Door Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Yes. Every time I read one of the Black Dog books, I completely rave. This review won’t be any different. So, if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, pick up Dog with a Bone and get reading. Hailey Edwards has a significant backlist with these titles that’ll keep you busy for a minute ☺ So. Dell & Isaac. Gods, I love them together so hard. We were introduced to them in the Gemini titles, but getting to focus on them as a main couple in the Lorimar Pack spin-off is absolutely wonderful. Their...
