Review: Surrender to Temptation by Lauren Jameson

Review: Surrender to Temptation by Lauren Jameson Surrender to Temptation Author: Lauren Jameson  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Hey! I totally missed the release of this title as a serial when it was coming out! No biggie… I’m glad I had the chance to read the book in its entirety. In a day. Because the writing is so engaging. Lauren Jameson’s writing style – her depth and breadth of delving into her characters – is nothing short of spectacular. She handles the D/s relationship a bit differently, in my experience, and introduces a new aspect of the lifestyle to readers, too. Devon Reid is introduced to us as a secretary at the law...

Review: The King by JR Ward

Review: The King by JR Ward The King Author: JR Ward Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: JR Ward’s twelfth endeavor in her extremely popular Black Dagger Brotherhood, The King, is the ambitious tale covering the lives of several key characters: most notably Vampire King Wrath and his lovely Queen, Beth. The pair was the focus of the first book, Dark Lover, and they have played central rolls in a number of the subsequent stories. However, this time around we get up close with Wrath and Beth as they deal with the pressures placed on the monarchy, Beth’s desire to have a child, the snobby glymera, and rival vampire, Xcor along with...

Review: Unwound by Lorelei James

Review: Unwound by Lorelei James Unwound Author: Lorelei James  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I was really excited to read Unwound, the second (and final) title in Lorelei James’s The Mastered series. I needed to find out what happened with Ronin and Amery. It was bugging me. I needed the end of their story. To say I highly anticipated this book is an understatement. I didn’t even start writing my review until the next day. I’d fallen into a book coma. With that said, you really do need to read Bound, the first title in the series, before experiencing Unwound. I’m going to TRY to write a review that doesn’t spoil...

Review: Seduced by Fire by Tara Sue Me

Review: Seduced by Fire by Tara Sue Me Seduced by Fire Author: Tara Sue Me  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I have a lot I want to say about Seduced by Fire. There’s many quotes I found that resonated within me. Every day, we learn a little more about ourselves, and our interactions with others. I think this story is a great part of anyone’s journey of self-discovery, and while it’s about smokin’ hot guys and seriously hot sex, the tenants are valuable in not only the bedroom, but other areas of life. In reality, this title could almost be a manual for beginning submission. Even if reading BDSM/erotica isn’t your thing, indulge me...

Review & Giveaway: Bound by Lorelei James

Review & Giveaway: Bound by Lorelei James Bound Author: Lorelei James  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Not gonna lie. I completely DEVOURED Bound. Is it March yet? I need Unraveled NOW!  Here’s the thing about Bound… I was empathetic toward Ronin from the beginning. He is one of the most tortured souls I’ve encountered in a while, and I didn’t get all of his story in this book. Not. Fair. I want to know all the details about him. His childhood. Why he was so closed-off with Amery. But, I also gained perspective while reading. The supporting characters in Bound, Ms. James’s first title in her new The Mastered series, were quirky, fun,...

Old and new fans of contemporary fiction will devour this one.

Sunday Snippet – Daylighters

Sunday Snippet – Daylighters  About the Book Daylighters Author:  Rachel Caine Publisher:   NAL Released:  November 5, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “It’s clear you don’t understand the slightest thing about what is happening in Morganville,” Amelie said.  “So I will forgive you for not comprehending how much danger you put Michael in by separating him from my protection.”  She nodded slightly, and on the other side of the atrium, Oliver stepped up.  He was holding Michael by the arm.  Michael broke free, and for just a heartbeat Claire saw him clearly in the dim light:  a shock of golden hair wild around his face, clear blue eyes fixed on Eve.  Of all of them, he looked the...

Review: Daylighters by Rachel Caine

Review: Daylighters by Rachel Caine Daylighters Author: Rachel Caine Reviewer: Una Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Wow…I am speechless over the final book in the Morganville Vampires series.  I started this series from reading a novella (how Eve came to be a member of the Glass House) and enjoyed the novella so much, I started the series with the first book.  Daylighters ties this series up with a big red bow it seems.  Although there is the option, if Ms. Caine decides, for us to be able to return to Morganville.  However, the story of Claire and her Glass House friends has come full circle, and I’m happy to say, the...

Review: Biting Bad by Chloe Neill

Review: Biting Bad by Chloe Neill Biting Bad Author: Chloe Neill Reviewer: Guest Review: Wendy Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: I wish I could say that I loved everything about this book, and – don’t get me wrong,  parts of it were great – but overall it felt… unfinished. The good stuff first: Merit and Ethan continue to be a fantastic couple. They’re funny and they’re sexy, and they’re two of the least broody vampires I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy on paper. I love their relationship. He’s kind of stuffy and uptight (because… you know… he’s 400 years old), and she’s just one of the girls. She loves pizza and...
