Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine Ink and Bone Author: Rachel Caine Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: For fans of Rachel Caine’s young adult series The Morganville Vampires, she has something new.  Although Gikany and Una both had very different reactions to the start of Ink and Bone, by the end we both loved it and are eagerly awaiting more in the new The Great Library series. For fans of The Morganville Vampires series looking for something similar, this is not it unless you want something just as addicting.  The Great Library series is completely new and entirely intriguing.  Una thought the book had a slow start to it while...

Review: The Collar by Tara Sue Me

Review: The Collar by Tara Sue Me The Collar Author: Tara Sue Me Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B What I’m Talking About: I’ve been reading The Submissive Series. I like it. I like the fact that Ms. Sue Me’s Partners in Play series is attached to The Submissive Series. Although, it almost seems as though both ‘series’ have merged in a significant way. The Collar needs a couple trigger warnings, though. One of the most painful things for me is to read about cancer stuff. I struggle and cling to Mr. VampBard like there’s no tomorrow when I read anything remotely mentioning cancer. In this title, one of the main characters has a parent dying from cancer....

Review: Moonlight On Nightingale Way by Samantha Young

Review: Moonlight On Nightingale Way by Samantha Young Moonlight On Nightingale Way Author: Samantha Young Reviewer: Luisa (Guest Review) Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: This final installment of the On Dublin Street series might be the last, but the story will stay forever in my heart. Being this the last book of one of my favorite series, my expectations were really high, however Samantha Young did not disappoint. As I was reading this book, I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic and a little apprehensive as I read about a brand new characters. My fears were quickly at ease, as I was quickly consumed by the story. Our heroine Grace Farquhar (formerly Gracelyn Bentley) is a young...

Review: The Enticement by Tara Sue Me

Review: The Enticement by Tara Sue Me The Enticement Author: Tara Sue Me Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: So, I did a little backlist binge reading awhile ago. I picked up the first three titles in Tara Sue Me’s Submissive series after reading the first book in her Partners in Play series last year. The Enticement is giving me all the feels, folks. All. The. Feels. First, I want to note I feel strongly that this book can be read as a standalone. Read: even if you haven’t read the other titles in the series, you won’t be banging your head against the wall wondering what’s going on. Ms. Me does a great...

Review: The Shadows by JR Ward

Review: The Shadows by JR Ward The Shadows Author: JR Ward Reviewer: Jen Twimom What I’m Talking About: I freely admit that I am a JR Ward – Black Dagger Brotherhood junkie. I will devour a book, pick it apart, complain about what did or did not happen, and still go back for more the following year. I preordered The Shadows the day it was available. I cannot stop myself. With that said, this book may be the one that breaks me. I don’t know if I can keep coming back… I guess I’ll find out next year. Please note, this review is written in mind of those who are familiar with the series and...

Review: Unraveled by Lorelei James

Review: Unraveled by Lorelei James Unraveled Author: Lorelei James Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Shiori and Knox. *fans self* Perfectly balanced story. Humor, D/s, and watching a relationship have *normal* (sort-of) problems and fabulous resolutions…with super hot sexy times. It felt as though I was a voyeur watching all the things going on with Shiori & Knox. The intimacy of their relationship was intense, and beautiful. One of the things that struck me about Shiori and Knox was the need that drove them both into their relationship. It was never casual for either of them from the beginning. It was planned and purposeful. Borne of Shiori’s desire for affection, and Knox’s...

Review: Hero by Samantha Young

Review: Hero by Samantha Young Hero Author: Samantha Young Reviewer: Nena Rating: B What I’m Talking About: If you are familiar with Samantha Young’s writing, you know her writing tends to flows seamlessly at every turn of the page. Contemporary romance readers will appreciate the story telling in this novel, even though the story seems to follow the popular “independent young woman, falls for self-made millionaire” trend. In Hero, we meet Alexa Holland as she’s preparing a set for a photo-shoot session with a high profile client. When her boss informs Alexa that they’ll be working with Mr. Caine Carraway, Alexa’s world stops spinning. She immediately recognizes the name and realizes that she must decide...

Review: Linger by Lauren Jameson

Review: Linger by Lauren Jameson Linger Author: Lauren Jameson Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: If you’ve not read Lauren Jameson’s In Vino Veritas series, you’re in luck. The third – and final – installment, Linger, has released and you can book-binge on the trilogy! I highly recommend all three books in this series. While you don’t necessarily have to read them in order, it is highly suggested by this reader. Ms. Jameson crafts a wonderful plot revolving around Logan and Scarlett. I was nearly brought to tears several times throughout this novel. I loved Scarlett and Logan – together and separately for a variety of reasons. First, both characters are believable....

Review: Fall From India Place by Samantha Young

Review: Fall From India Place by Samantha Young Fall From India Place Author: Samantha Young Reviewer: Luisa (Guest Post) Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Fans of Samantha Young’s On Dublin Street series rejoice, Fall From India Place released on June 3rd as the fourth book (sixth if you include the two novellas) in the series, with at least one more book scheduled for 2015. Even though I have been reading this series since the first book (On Dublin Street) came out the summer of 2012, I try to avoid details about the upcoming novels so I do not have any preconceived ideas and expectations. Fall From India Place was a big surprise for me as the...
