Review: Phoenix Reborn by J.D. Tyler

Review: Phoenix Reborn by J.D. Tyler Phoenix Reborn Author: J.D. Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have been looking forward to Noah and Nix’s novel.  We’ve enjoyed Noah’s character and have been eagerly waiting for him to finally be claimed by his mate.  Sadly, Phoenix Reborn fell flat for us. Nix has been recovering from being captured and tortured by enemies.  Upon his rescue some books back, Nix met his mate Noah, the Alpha Pack nurse.  In the previous novels Nix has adamantly maintained that he is straight and was horrified that his mate is a man.  This has been something we have been waiting to find...

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler Her Fierce Warrior Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Overall Gikany and Una have liked the X-Ops series, although, the latest offering, Her Fierce Warrior, fell a bit flat for us.  The plight of stopping the evil doctors was gripping, but the romantic storyline between Minka and Angelo was lacking. Over the course of the previous three books, the Department of Covert Operations (DCO) team has been trying to uncover the mole in their organization, find the evil doctors making the hybrids, all while doing their normal jobs.  We liked that this novel touched base with some previous couples, especially Landon and...

Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs

Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs Fire Touched Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Ms. Briggs has amazed us again!  Gikany and Una have waited with baited breath for this latest installment in the Mercy Thompson series.  Fire Touched is another dynamic novel in this rich world. The strife between the Fae and the rest of the world has reached a boiling point.  Fire Touched is the pinnacle of this over-arching plot.  After defeating a rampaging troll, Mercy proclaims that the Tri-Cities area is under the packs protection.  This one heartfelt reaction makes the Tri-Cities the epicenter of the ever-increasing political storm between the humans, Fae, werewolves and...

Review: A Covert Affair by Katie Reus

Review: A Covert Affair by Katie Reus A Covert Affair Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: A Covert Affair is the fifth offering in the Deadly Ops series.  This romantic suspense series follows ultra-secretive NSA operatives as they combat evil (both domestic and foreign) while finding their soulmates along the way.  Gikany and Una overall liked the story of Nathan and Amelia. In this installment we follow Nathan, an operative who was wounded in the previous novel.  He has recovered and is returning to duty on a mission that reconnects him to his lost love, Amelia.  When they were young, Amelia broke Nathan’s heart and it seems neither of...

Review: Grave Visions by Kalayna Price

Review: Grave Visions by Kalayna Price Grave Visions Author: Kalayna Price Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: After waiting with baited breath for the fourth Alex Craft novel, it is finally here.  Grave Visions was well worth waiting for!  Gikany and Una, although we struggled at times to remember the events of the previous three novels, found ourselves happily immersed in this fascinating world. Although we wished at times that we had reread at least the previous novel, we were able to recall enough of the previous events so that we did not feel lost.  However, it might be useful for other fans to reread the previous books so you have...

Review: Anna and the Vampire Prince by Jeanne C. Stein

Review: Anna and the Vampire Prince by Jeanne C. Stein Anna and the Vampire Prince Author: Jeanne C. Stein Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: For fans of the Anna Strong Chronicles, you will not want to miss the latest novella, Anna and the Vampire Prince.  Gikany and Una liked this glimpse of Anna in transition as she mourns her mother.  It was another chance to see Vlad and gave these two readers something to ponder about what may be next in this world. ****If you haven’t read the series, this novella is not the place to start.  We strongly recommend you read the series from the beginning.**** Anna’s story has had some closure.  Her...

Review + Giveaway: Extreme Honor by Piper J. Drake

Review + Giveaway: Extreme Honor by Piper J. Drake Extreme Honor Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Extreme Honor is the exciting debut novel in the True Heroes series.  I enjoyed the captivating story of David, Lyn, and Atlas. Suffice to say, I can’t wait for more in this gripping series that combines hot military men, their loyal canine companions, and the women they love. This novel sets up Hope’s Crossing Kennel, where David works with two other ex-military men.  They train dogs for anything from basic house pets to military working dogs and in between.  Atlas, a Belgian Malinois, has been returned to David to rehabilitate. Atlas, a military multipurpose dog,...

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson Of Flame and Promise Author: Cecy Robson Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: At first Gikany and Una thought we were getting Taran’s novel when we received Of Flame and Promise.  However, this is a prequel novella that gives Taran’s back-story and sets up what will be her journey in the coming novel. This novella was a breath of fresh air.  We liked seeing behind Taran’s brash bravado into a sweet and vulnerable soul.  We also loved seeing her sisters through her eyes, especially her view of Celia.  Throughout the previous novels, Celia was unsure of herself and was plagued with worry about her relationship...

First, we enjoyed the dynamic between Dakota and Trixie.  They are two vampires who appear to be polar opposites, yet are magnetically attracted to each other.  Although Trixie tries to fight her growing attraction to Dakota for her own personal...

Review: In the Company of Wolves by Paige Tyler

Review: In the Company of Wolves by Paige Tyler In the Company of Wolves Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: In the Company of Wolves is the third installment in the action packed and passionate SWAT series.  Overall, Gikany and Una liked Janya and Becker’s story and the continuing evolving mythology. ***Please note that the novels could be read as stand-alone, but they are better if read from the beginning as the mythology builds from book to book.*** Janya and Becker’s romance was fascinating: the story of the officer falling for the thief – but it isn’t quite that simple.  We liked that Janya was a reluctant thief, her story and...
