Review: All Wound Up by Jaci Burton

Review: All Wound Up by Jaci Burton All Wound Up Author: Jaci Burton Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Ok, this is book ten.  Burton successfully does what she’s done the entire series.  All Wound Up continues to deliver what her readers have come to love and expect with this series. More of the same isn’t a bad thing, especially if this is your reading groove.  For me, however, the Play-By-Play series has become formulaic.  Like other books in this series; All Wound Up is predictable with an anti-climactic finish. There’s nothing especially original about this plot, it’s the “nobody is good enough for my daughter” plot.  The fact that the couple in this...

Review: Home by Morning by Kaki Warner

Review: Home by Morning by Kaki Warner Home by Morning Author: Kaki Warner Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Kaki Warner’s Heartbreak Creek series has a consistent theme of Redemption and Homecoming and Home By Morning was no different. Pru and Thomas, who are both fighting to figure out where they belong and what their purposes are in a post Civil War world, find that hurts can heal with the right love and support, and home is rarely found without a struggle; often in unexpected places and with the least likely of people. Anyone who has followed The Runway Bride series or the Heroes of Heartbreak Creek series, of which this is the third...

Review: Flight from Death by Yasmine Galenorn

Review: Flight from Death by Yasmine Galenorn Flight from Death Author: Yasmine Galenorn Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: C+ What We’re Talking About: Flight from Death is the debut novel in a new spin-off series, Fly by Night, from Yasmine Galenorn.  Although the premise was promising with a fascinating world, it just did not deliver for Gikany and Una. First, we need to say that we did not read the original series.  If we had, the story might have made a little more sense, and we may have been more invested in the story.  There are several flashbacks during the story that takes us from the action and mystery of the ‘now’ and throws us back...

DNF Review: Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat

DNF Review: Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat Prince’s Gambit Author: C.S. Pacat Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: After finishing Captive Prince earlier this year, I was disappointed that the book was mislabeled as an m/m fantasy romance, but rather, it was the first book in a duo or trio that together is one story. I ranted about this in my review, so I won’t go into it again here. So why did I pick up the second book, Prince’s Gambit? For two reasons: 1) I found the second half of Captive Prince to be engaging and interesting; and 2) in reviews I’d read from the original Captive Prince, it mentioned reading “both parts” so...

Review: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie

Review: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie The Spring Bride Author: Anne Gracie Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Those that regularly read my reviews know that I am not new to Anne Gracie or the Chance Sisters series. After the second book in the series, The Autumn Bride, left we wanting, I am happy to report that was not the case with The Spring Bride. The warmth and banter that I have come to love from Ms. Gracie was back as Jane and Zachary get to know each other mainly through long walks around Berkeley Square. The inner struggles and unloading for life’s lessons and baggage was addressed and happily ever after was...

Review: Bengal’s Quest by Lora Leigh

Review: Bengal’s Quest by Lora Leigh Bengal’s Quest Author: Lora Leigh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C- What I’m Talking About: Note: this book is not a standalone nor a good starting point in the series, as there is a convoluted, confusing overall story arc that has spanned several books. The opening prologue flashback helped me recall key parts of the ongoing story, but it’s not enough for a newcomer to the series. Jumping into the mix… Cat was born a human, but was genetically altered into a Breed in an effort to save her from a childhood illness. For years she posed as Claire Martinez, hiding from the Genetic Council and the Breed who swore...

Review: One Night with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare

Review: One Night with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare One Night with a Billionaire Author: Jessica Clare Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: FINALLY! Cade Archer has been so entirely screwed over in this series. I couldn’t wait until he got his own happily-ever-after. Could. Not. Wait. But when I realized Daphne didn’t get clean—and I want to state, for the record I’m okay with that—I got a bit giddy. Okay. Maybe that was a little spoilerish. But…but…the blurb talks about Kylie. So I didn’t *really* spill the beans, right? So, throughout the entire series, Cade has been in love with Daphne, rock star diva. If you’ve read the Billionaire Boys Club series, you know all...

Review: Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

Review: Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh Shards of Hope Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Opening shortly after the conclusion of the previous book, Shards of Hope shares the story of a post-Silence world, one which sees the fierce and deadly Arrows trying to adapt. Arrow leader Aden, along with one of his top commanders, Zaira, is taken captive by an unknown group, resulting in a temporary disconnect from the PsyNet. This opens up the opportunity for Aden to learn from a Changeling pack and begin to implement post-Silence ideas into his “Arrow pack.” Overall, I enjoyed Shards of Hope as a transitional book, bringing the Psy and whole...

Review: Grave Phantoms by Jenn Bennett

Review: Grave Phantoms by Jenn Bennett Grave Phantoms Author: Jenn Bennett Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Astrid Magnusson appears to have it all: money, privilege, independence… . The one thing she doesn’t have is the man she’s loved for years: Bo Yeung. With prejudice against Chinese immigrants a constant and pervasive obstacle, a life with him seems impossible.

Review + Snippet + Giveaway: Busted by Shiloh Walker

Review + Snippet + Giveaway: Busted by Shiloh Walker Busted Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It’s no secret I love Shiloh Walker’s books. I have this ongoing ‘thing’ with her writing. I have to be ready, prepared to read about the situations her characters survive. But it’s not just about the tortured alpha males, nor the strong and tenacious women that turn them into puddles of quivering man-candy. It’s about the interaction between characters. I’m totally invested in the Barnes Brothers series, but I’m pretty sure I’ve found my new book boyfriend. I may be ruined for other hot and angsty dudes because of Trey Barnes. I think I was drawn in...
