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 + 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...

Review: Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

Review: Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat Captive Prince Author: C.S. Pacat Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: When I saw that Berkley was rereleasing Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat, an award-winning LGBTQ title, I checked Goodreads and saw glowing reviews. So I picked up the title for review, thinking it was a m/m fantasy romance, but what I found was something a bit different. After losing their King, the citizens of Akielos believe his heir, Prince Damianos. is also dead. However, Damianos was actually captured and tortured by his half-brother, Kastor, and subsequently made into the slave Damen and given as a gift to the Prince of Vere, Laurent. Laurent will be...

Review: The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare

Review: The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed Author: Jessica Clare Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Shhh. The Billionaire Boys Club books are my secret crack. Once I get my hands on one, I can’t put it down! Jessica Clare has created a wonderful secret society of powerful men that have one element missing in their lives: a woman they feel completes them. We’ve met both Audrey and Reese in previous titles of this series, and I’m going to be totally honest. I thought Audrey would end up with Cade. Yup. Didn’t happen. Thus, the apt title The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed. Readers of the series will remember Audrey’s twin, Daphne—the...

Review: What a Woman by Judi Fennell

Review: What a Woman by Judi Fennell What a Woman Author: Judi Fennell Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B/B- What I’m Talking About: After reading how Mary-Alice Catherine Manley, aka Mac, and her grandmother managed to find perfect matches for the three Manley brothers in the previous books of this enjoyable series, this time around it’s Mac’s turn to discover romance and love. As owner of her own cleaning/maid service (Manley Maids), Mac schemed with her grandmother to get her three attractive (and well-known in one case) brothers to work for her company to help promote the Manley Maid name. Now Grandma tells Mac she must clean the house of a dear friend, who happens to be...

Review: Dreamer’s Daughter by Lynn Kurland

Review: Dreamer’s Daughter by Lynn Kurland Dreamer’s Daughter Author: Lynn Kurland Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Dreamer’s Daughter is the last novel in the third of three interconnected trilogies, and completes the epic quest of Aisling of Bruadair and Rùnach of Ceangail. But, of all the challenges they’ve faced so far, none may be so great as Aisling’s acceptance of the birthright she’s denied until now. What began as a search to find someone else to save her homeland and return the throne to its rightful rulers has become Aisling’s own voyage of self-discovery, leading to the realization that she is much more important in the grand scheme of things than she...

Review: The Good Chase by Hanna Martine

Review: The Good Chase by Hanna Martine The Good Chase Author: Hanna Martine Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Ms. Martine has done it again with her wonderfully passionate and slowly burning contemporary romance, The Good Chase. The book was a fun and enjoyable read. I have loved Shea since reading Longshot.  Shea is a no nonsense whisky expert who loves and cherishes her Scottish blood.  She is a woman who has learned from the mistakes of her past and is working hard to be the strong independent woman she knows she can be.  Shea is smart and talented, and I found myself connected to her in many ways.  She had been hurt and...

Review: The Vault by Emily McKay

Review: The Vault by Emily McKay The Vault Author: Emily McKay Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Note: This review contains spoilers from the previous two titles. If you have not read the previous books, read this review at your risk. Gikany and Una have come to appreciate the compelling world of The Farm series. The unique vampire mythology is fascinating. Humans already possess the DNA that can turn us from thinking beings into ticks consumed by only the hunt and need for blood. That this potential can be made a reality through a catalyst created by human scientists is staggering. The previous two novels, The Farm and The Lair, have...

Review: Razed by Shiloh Walker

Review: Razed by Shiloh Walker Razed Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Ms. Walker has certainly brought intense sexual tension to fruition with an explosive release in Razed. This second title of her Barnes Brothers series was most eagerly anticipated… Because I completely fell in love with Zane the moment I saw him in Wrecked. Razed has the super-secret-ninja-identity trope, which is one of my favorites. I’ll just leave this here to drive you crazy. Because I can’t say more, or it’d be spoilery. So, if you’re a fan of this trope like me, pick up this book. STAT. If you read the first book, Wrecked, in this series...
