Review: One of the Guys by Shiloh Walker

Review: One of the Guys by Shiloh Walker One of the Guys Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Jaynie Holmes was engaged to her longtime high school sweetheart, Dean Albridge, until she catches him in bed with his best friend and their busty neighbor. Taking comfort and refuge in Kate’s (her best friend) home, Jaynie is surprised when she feels an attraction to Kate’s older brother Brian, who also happens to be Jaynie’s co-worker and business partner. One of the Guys is a super sexy, quick read. I loved Jaynie and Brian’s romance; a true friends-to-lovers story that was equal parts heartwarming and steamy. Brian and Jaynie’s chemistry was explosive, and...

Review: Magic Stars by Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Stars by Ilona Andrews Magic Stars Author: Ilona Andrews Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Magic Stars is a great little side novella for fans of the Kate Daniels series. Told mostly from the third person POV of Derek, the story shares Derek and Julie’s adventures as they work together on a deadly investigation. It is a straight forward tale, giving readers insight into both Derek’s precarious emotional/mental state and Julie’s magical training. We learn some of the rather shocking and dangerous activities Julie has been exploring, all of which make me very nervous for what is in store for her as she grows and matures. *bites nails*. Derek and...

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Brighter Than the Sun by Darynda Jones

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Brighter Than the Sun by Darynda Jones Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook review: Brighter Than the Sun Author: Darynda Jones Narrator: Lorelei King Listening Speed: 1.25x Audiobook Source: purchased What I’m Talking About: Brighter Than the Sun is a story for fans and readers of the Charlie Davidson series by Darynda Jones. Told in the first person, present tense voice of Reyes, the novella recounts his life from Charlie’s birth to a point sometime within the first book of the series. I don’t recommend this story for those who have not read the series because, although it is a prequel of sorts, knowledge of the two main characters, Charlie and Reyes,...

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...
