Another rote answer. Another half-lie. “Do you ever get scared you’ll f*ck it up? Not to imply you ever would. But sounds like you walk a thin line.” I met her eyes. All the time, I wanted to say. I was scared out of my mind all the time I’d f*ck up. I...

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: One True Mate by Julie Trettel

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: One True Mate by Julie Trettel Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook Reviews: Westin Pack series One True Mate Author:  Julie Trettel Narrators:  Carly Robins and Joe Hempel Audio Listening Speed: 1.5x Series: Westin Pack #1 Genre: Paranormal Romance Source: Tantor Audio One True Mate is the first novel in the Westin Pack series – a new paranormal romance series.  Though the premise was interesting, I feel it fell a bit flat. The mythology of the wolf shifters that Ms. Trettel crafted was interesting.  However the belief that female Alpha wolves need to be destroyed at birth was disturbing.  What I feel was more bothersome is the acceptance by the...

Review: Blood Fury by J.R. Ward

Review: Blood Fury by J.R. Ward Blood Fury Author: J.R. Ward Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: The latest offering in the Black Dagger Legacy series, Blood Fury is, suffice to say, awesome.  The twin love stories combined with the on-going background original story lines is gripping, especially as the romantic journey of the couples is the stronger focal point. Originally the Black Dagger Brotherhood was one of my most favorite dark urban fantasy romance series.  However, as the series has progressed, the romance portion/drive has diminished.  Thankfully J.R. Ward has given us the Black Dagger Legacy series that truly is a spin-off that is back to the “old school.”  This series works...

Review: Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Review: Down by Contact by Santino Hassell Down By Contact Author: Santino Hassell Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: 3/10/2018 Edited to Add: Please note, this review was written and posted prior to the occurrences brought to light in recent days (https://goo.gl/Y7WB7F). The book was read and reviewed in good faith and as presented at the time. The posting of this review in no way condones the actions of author. ======== Down by Contact has been on my personal “long-awaited” list since it was first announced that it would be Simeon’s book. Flirty and charming, with a huge personality, Simeon was an instant favorite in Illegal Contact, the introductory story in The Barons series,...

Review: Elizabeth’s Wolf by Lora Leigh

Review: Elizabeth’s Wolf by Lora Leigh Elizabeth’s Wolf Author: Lora Leigh Reviewer: Jen Rating: B What I’m Talking About: If you’ve followed by reviews for any length of time, you know I have a love-hate relationship with the Breeds series by Lora Leigh. It’s my crack – not always providing substance, but hard to quit. I started the series with Megan’s Mark (book #7), so I missed out on a few of the early, world-building titles. Berkley Publishing and the author are re-releasing Elizabeth’s Wolf, in preparation of this fall’s release of Cassie’s book (Cross Breed). Hear the cheer from fans around the world! Dash, posing as a human solider, was injured in the line...
