Review: Pure Wicked by Shayla Black

Review: Pure Wicked by Shayla Black Pure Wicked Author: Shayla Black Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I’ve read a handful of the 1,001 Dark Nights books, to include Forever Wicked by Shayla Black (Goodreads Review), and I have honestly enjoyed the stories, regardless if I’ve read the original series. Such is the case with Ms. Black’s offerings. Written to be completely stand alone, I had no troubles jumping into Ms. Black’s Wicked Lovers world and the Pure Wicked novella. Jesse McCall is a world-famous pop star who has been selling out shows since at the age of sixteen. Twelve years later, he’s still doing the same; however, a year ago the...

Review: Harmonized by Mary Behre

Review: Harmonized by Mary Behre Harmonize Author: Mary Behre  Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: For fans of the Tidewater series, I think Harmonized is a must. It can be read as a stand-alone novella, but it is much richer knowing Zig from the previous novel, Spirited. I enjoyed revisiting with Zig and seeing him have a happily ever after. I liked Karma as well and felt that she and Zig complemented each other.  It gives a nice background to what I assume will be the serial killer plot in the next full novel, but I don’t believe that it is vital to read Harmonized before the next book.  However, for those...

Review: Stolen Petals by Katherine McIntyre

Review: Stolen Petals by Katherine McIntyre Stolen Petals Author: Katherine McIntyre Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Viola Embrees runs a respectable bar, but makes her fortune as the Brass Violet, a clever bounty hunter. Unfortunately, Edward Van Clef, aka the Fox, has stolen her bounty out from under her a few times. So when the infamous Fox approaches Viola with an offer to share a bounty, she knows she’ll have to stay a few steps ahead of him to keep him from double crossing her. What she doesn’t expect is to fall for Edward’s charms along the way. Stolen Petals is a charming, short novella, set in an alternate time. Although...

Review: Hades by Larissa Ione

Review: Hades by Larissa Ione Hades Author: Larissa Ione Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Hades is a wonderful novella set in Ms. Ione’s Demonica/Lords of Deliverance series, and is probably best enjoyed by those who have read the entire series (or at least the most recent books). The story takes place a few months after Azagoth’s and Revenants’s books and has major spoilers if you haven’t read Revenant’s book. Be warned as you read this review! Cataclysm (Cat) played a part in Gethel’s wicked plots to bring about the evil apocalypse, and in an attempt to hide his own involvement, Raphael took Cat’s wings, making her an Unfallen. Now she...

Review + Giveaway: Uncharted Territory by Tamsen Parker

Review + Giveaway: Uncharted Territory by Tamsen Parker Uncharted Territory Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: If I had to sum up Uncharted Territory in one word, it would be: supersmokinhot. I’m going to admit I was initially irritated by this prequel to the Compass series, and it’s the only reason I’m not giving this title an A+. I’m a *very* chronological reader, and my preference would have been to get India’s backstory prior to Personal Geography. (I get the whole reason behind writing (when the muse strikes, and this is a totally ME thing.) However, my irritation quickly eroded into intrigue. I’m not going to sugar-coat anything with regard to this...

Review: Protective Instinct by Katie Reus

Review: Protective Instinct by Katie Reus Protective Instinct Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: For fans of the Moon Shifters series, this novella is a must. It nicely ties up Ryan and Theresa’s relationship. Gikany and Una enjoyed it. We have been interested in seeing Ryan and Theresa finally consummate their mating.  Of course, Ryan has to be sure his abilities won’t cause the same tortured relationship his parents had.  However, once Ryan started listening to his mate, the pieces finally fell into place.  We enjoyed seeing them finally come together. The antagonist for the story was evil, her path for vengeance palpable, and it really was a...

Review: Chasing Danger by Katie Reus

Review: Chasing Danger by Katie Reus Chasing Danger Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: For fans of the Deadly Ops series, Chasing Danger is an exciting and passionate novella.  Although it had been awhile since Gikany and Una had read the last books, we did remember Hannah, Sophie’s friend from the first book who also makes a cameo in the second. We liked Hannah and Dax’s journey.  Since it was so short, it helped that they had a past together.  The obstacles in their relationship were serious, but we liked how they communicated and overcame them.  Their communication was really good once Sophie moved past the hurt that...

Review: Taken by HelenKay Dimon

Review: Taken by HelenKay Dimon Taken Author: HelenKay Dimon Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Not gonna lie. When I read HelenKay Dimon’s first Holton Woods book, I was clamoring for more of Eli and Wade’s story. Fortunately, Ms. Dimon was given the go-ahead and got this hot little M/M story in our hands. Never read a M/M romance? This *might* be a good gateway story for you! My only complaint about Taken was that it wasn’t long enough. At an estimated 119 pages (only available in e-book, as far as I could tell…), I devoured this title in an evening while I was resetting from an unbearable day at my #dayjob....
