Review: Tripped Out by Lorelei James

Review: Tripped Out by Lorelei James Tripped Out Author: Lorelei James Reviewer: Jen Rating: C- What I’m Talking About: After leaving her well-paying corporate job, Stirling Gradsky took a chance and went into business with her brother. Now they own and operate High Society, a medicinal and recreational marijuana facility. Liam Argent has dedicated his life to understanding the chemical properties of marijuana and loves all the perks of working for High Society. But the constant head-butting and pranking with Stirling needs to end so they can grow the company.

Review: Contracted Defense by Piper J. Drake

Review: Contracted Defense by Piper J. Drake Contracted Defense Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Contracted Defense is the third title in the Safeguard series and was a gripping blend of humor and action.  Gikany and Una continue to like this suspenseful romantic series, even though the romance moves a little quickly for our tastes. One of the elements that we like about this series is that even though the main couple may fall in love quickly, it still ends with the Happily-For-Now, allowing the couple time to date as the next novel begins.  We like that for all the drama and intense passion, they still will take...

Review: How to Save an Undead Life by Hailey Edwards

Review: How to Save an Undead Life by Hailey Edwards How to Save an Undead Life Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Hailey Edwards has a new series out!!! **muppet flail happy dance** I’ve been chomping at the bit to get my grubby little hands on How to Save an Undead Life since Ms. Edwards announced the project and started dropping hints. This is the first of three (currently) planned titles in the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series, and I’m already all grabby hands for book two. We’ve got some awesome vampire lore here, and the world is well-developed so it’s easy to see the hierarchy. First, supporting characters. Boaz: this guy is Grier’s...

Sunday Snippet: Blood Guard by Megan Erickson  About the Book Blood Guard    Author:  Megan Erickson Publisher: Loveswept Released: September 12, 2017 Series: Mission #1 Genre: Paranormal Romance REVIEW Snippet: Getting supplies took longer than expected, mainly because I couldn’t find food for Tendra’s cat, Brex. By the time I managed to gather what I needed, the sun was beginning to rise. I took an alternative route back to Tendra, heading underground at a different location to avoid getting burned alive. But when I ascended the stairs, expecting to see Tendra at the landing at the top, I saw . . . nothing. I blinked at the empty space, my mind racing. Did I take the wrong stairs? Did I...

Review: The Shift of the Tide by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Shift of the Tide by Jeffe Kennedy The Shift of the Tide Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una were anxiously awaiting Zynda’s story.  The Shift of the Tide is utterly compelling and may have replaced Andi’s (The Mark of the Tala) as our favorite book in this series. Zynda has always been a bit of an enigma character.  She is beautifully mysterious and you just know there is much more going on in her head than she lets on.  Zynda is an amazing shapeshifter — the pride of her people, and she is a relative to the previous Tala Queen, Salena. Regardless, Zynda has a secret...

Jen’s Summer Reading Wrap-Up

Jen’s Summer Reading Wrap-Up Now that Labor Day has come and passed, summer vacation has ended. While we may still get a nice day here and there, the nights are getting cooler and days are getting shorter. Soon the New England Autumn will be in full swing. So I thought I’d take a few moments to share my favorite reads from Summer 2017. I read and/or listened to 24 books: 16 books and 8 audiobooks, between Memorial Day and Labor Day. My reading slowed down considerably over the summer. There was more time hanging out with the family and staying up late with the kids. But also, my audiobook listening time was cut...
