Review: Saved by Darkness by Katie Reus

Review: Saved by Darkness by Katie Reus Saved by Darkness Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Jen Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Saved by Darkness is the sixth title in Ms. Reus’ entertaining paranormal romance Darkness series. This traditional PNR features a wide variety of shifters, vampires, demigods, and demons, each with a happily ever after. While each book is a standalone romance, the characters and mythology have been developed over the course of the series, making it a richly detailed world, one which is best experienced from the start. This time around the story focuses on half-demon, half-dragon shifter Ian, whom we met a couple books ago. He fell in love with dragon shifter Fiona over...

Review: A Mate for Christmas by Katie Reus

Review: A Mate for Christmas by Katie Reus A Mate for Christmas Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B  What We’re Talking About: Mate for Christmas is simply a beautifully wrapped gift from Ms. Reus to the readers and fans of her Moon Shifter series. Through this novella she wraps up the series (for now) and allows us to say goodbye. Through the story of Noel and Nathan, we are able to check in with the previous couples from the series as well as showing us the happily-ever-afters for a few other couples.  Although Noel and Nathan’s story was short, it was sweet and emotionally satisfying.  We enjoyed Nathan’s patient nature as Noel learns to...

Review: Dark Protector by Katie Reus

Review: Dark Protector by Katie Reus Dark Protector Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: After seeing the connection between Aldric and Natalia in the previous novel, Hunter Reborn, Gikany and Una eagerly anticipated seeing their courtship and conclusion.  Overall we liked this last full novel in the Moon Shifter series. We have to admit, Aldric is a stubborn, overbearing Alpha male.  He stupidly walked away from Natalia, breaking her heart.  However, he redeems himself by: 1) knowing he was an idiot for walking away, 2) apologizing for being said idiot, and 3) working to prove through his actions not only his remorse at hurting Natalia, but winning her...

Review: Into the Darkness by Katie Reus

Review: Into the Darkness by Katie Reus Into the Darkness Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A-/B+ What I’m Talking About: In Into the Darkness, author Katie Reus tackles two love stories and wraps up some loose ends, giving the book an end-of-series feel (although based on the epilogue, it’s not). The story opens from POV of Rhea, warrior wolf with Finn’s pack. She’s being pursued by Conall, the powerful alpha of a pack-friendly dragon clan. The pack is preparing for the wedding of friends Bo and Nyx (romance featured in book 4), bringing Conall and his family to town; however, it looks as if a deadly part of Rhea’s past has resurfaced to create...

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: Hunted by Darkness by Katie Reus

Review: Hunted by Darkness by Katie Reus Hunted by Darkness Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Bo, a half-demon who owns a supernatural bar, knows Nyx is his mate, but is worried his demon side will scare her away. In the last book, we discovered that Nyx is a demigod; her mom is goddess of Chaos and her father a fae prince. Her fae father has promised her in marriage to another, and because Nyx sought help from her mother to save a friend, her mom has come to collect the favor Nyx owes her. Now the pair will need to work together if they have a chance of surviving...

Review: Edge of Danger by Katie Reus

Review: Edge of Danger by Katie Reus Edge of Danger Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Overall, we liked the latest installment in Ms. Reus’s Deadly Ops series, Edge of Danger.  The political suspense drama kept us glued to the pages even though the romantic journey struck an odd chord with us. After the last novel in the Deadly Ops series, we wondered who the newest big bad would be and what would happen next.  We were not disappointed.  Having the DEA agents we briefly met in the previous novel, Shattered Duty, take point in this one was a nice transition.  Tucker was a fascinating character in Shattered Duty...

Although she’s considered royalty among her pack and is sister to the pack alpha, she was sheltered her whole life by parents.

One month ago while helping Keelin’s pack, Bran Devlin, alpha of another dragon clan, recognized...

Review: Shattered Duty by Katie Reus

Review: Shattered Duty by Katie Reus Shattered Duty Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Shattered Duty is our favorite Deadly Ops novel so far! We enjoyed the story of Levi and Selene. We liked the connections between them and the slow burn of their romance. Despite an overwhelming initial attraction, the time they take made their romance solid and believable. Considering the emotional scars that Levi has, their slow pace was perfect. The conflicts and challenges in their relationship were also spot-on, considering how they met. We really enjoyed how they worked and struggled with each other as they tried to not just get what they wanted but...
