Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: A Familiar Tail by Delia James

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: A Familiar Tail by Delia James Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook Reviews: Witch’s Cat Mysteries A Familiar Tail Author: Delia James Narrator: Elise Arsenault Audio Listening Speed: Series: Witch’s Cat Mystery #1 Genre: Urban Fantasy / Cozy Mystery Source: Tantor Audio I am delighted that I picked up this audiobook, A Familiar Tail.  On a whim, I thought I would enjoy a story that blends mystery with magic.  Overall I really enjoyed both the story and the narration and can’t wait to listen to the next Witch’s Cat Mystery. Though the story was a tad sluggish in starting because Anna was slow in getting into the magical pool, I enjoyed learning...

Review: The Mech Who Loved Me by Bec McMaster

Review: The Mech Who Loved Me by Bec McMaster The Mech Who Loved Me Author: Bec McMaster Reviewer: Jen Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: We first met Ava McLaren, blue blood and former Nighthawk, when she was captured and tortured in Perry’s book, Forged by Desire. Hague infected her with the craving virus and replaced her heart with a working, clockwork heart. She was recruited by Lord Malloryn as part of the Company of Rogues. Ava had been crushing on the only man who was nice to her after her ordeal. However, Byrnes’s wedding to his love, Ingrid, is where The Mech Who Loved Me opens, about six weeks after conclusion of previous book. While Ava may...

Review + Blog Tour: All Wheel Drive by Z.A. Maxfield

Review + Blog Tour: All Wheel Drive by Z.A. Maxfield All Wheel Drive Author: Z.A. Maxfield Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Diego Luz had a plan of his own before an accident caused a spinal injury that cost him the use of his legs. Losing his vibrant, wild, beautiful mother shortly afterward was too much for him to take. Relocating to Bluewater Bay was the perfect way for him to start over—and hide from his mother’s legacy. At least, until a haggard, broken survivor shows up on his doorstep looking for some shelter of his own. Born a genius who always knew the direction his life would likely take, Healey Holly wasn’t prepared for the day...

Review: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price

Review: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price Grave Ransom Author: Kalayna Price Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Fans of the Alex Craft series rejoice – this book was definitely worth the wait!  Gikany and Una enjoyed this fifth novel in the adventures of grave witch, Alex Craft.  Grave Ransom was an intriguing and gripping urban fantasy detective drama. We need to preface this review by stating that since it has been some time from the last book, Gikany reread the previous novels before jumping into this latest release.  Una being Una, jumped right in.  It took Una a bit of time to acclimate to the mythology and where we were with...

Review: The Legend by Donna Grant

Review: The Legend by Donna Grant The Legend Author: Donna Grant Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: As always with military romance, there’s an element of suspense. The Legend is no exception—and I love the way Ms. Grant weaves pieces of the information we’ve already learned through the previous two books in the series as reminders, or for readers that are new to the Sons of Texas books. This book was about the third Loughman brother, Wyatt. Now, until this point in the series, Wyatt has been pretty aloof, and I definitely had a driving desire to know more about him and his ‘tortured hero’ status. Because, we ALL want to know more...

Granite State Authors: Kari Lemor

Granite State Authors: Kari Lemor Periodically during 2017, I’m going feature authors from my home state, New Hampshire. We may be a small state, but we are BIG on talent. Please share and follow along with #GraniteStateAuthors, and join me in celebrating these wonderful… Just the Facts: Author: Kari Lemor Bio: Kari Lemor grew up as one of those kids who read all night under the covers.  Once she had her first glimpse of a romance novel at age 12, it was all over. Romance was in her blood. It would be many years before the stories that ran rampant in her head finally drove her to put words to paper, though. Now that her kids...

What was left of it, anyway. Since the Four Horsemen had plowed a truck right through the front windows a few days ago, nearly flattening everyone inside, the place was now a boarded-up disaster area. The fluorescent overhead fixtures were...

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook Reviews Dating You / Hating You Author: Christina Lauren Narrator:  Shayna Thibodeaux and Deacon Lee Audio Listening Speed: 1.25x Series: Standalone Genre: Contemporary Romance Source: Simon & Schuster Audio What to say about Dating You / Hating You? I really, really wanted to love this book, but I didn’t. Christina Lauren authors some of my favorite titles, but this unfortunately isn’t one of them. And rather than continue to listen to it, I decided to call it quits at the 57% mark (through Chapter 15). Let me tell you why… Carter and Evie are wonderful characters who have...

Review: Pounding Skin by L.A. Witt

Review: Pounding Skin by L.A. Witt Pounding Skin Author: L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Picking up shortly after Back Piece, the first story in the Skin Deep, Inc. series, Pounding Skin introduces readers to jet pilot Jon Russell and inker Matt Huffman, whom we briefly met before. Although the pairing of a member of the military and a civilian employee of the tattoo shop is the same, the characters are so different that there’s very little repetition. While familiar within those parameters, this sequel feels brand new in plenty of other ways, making the entire series better overall. Even more than the first story in this series, Pounding Skin is...

Review: Over the Moon by Hailey Edwards

Review: Over the Moon by Hailey Edwards Over the Moon Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I think Over the Moon is an excellent end to the Lorimar Pack books in the Black Dog universe. Don’t get me wrong—I’m definitely up for more books in the universe—as matter of fact, I think Ms. Edwards sets us up well for at least a novella for Theo—but Dell’s story arc feels complete in a satisfying way. That makes sense, right? You guys know what I’m talking about. I’ve been very vocal about adoring the Black Dog universe since it started. The world-building is killer, and any time I have questions, I can guarantee...
