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....

Review: The Virgin’s Night Out by Shiloh Walker

Review: The Virgin’s Night Out by Shiloh Walker The Virgin’s Night Out Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Gotta be honest. No one. NO ONE. writes tortured heroes like Shiloh Walker. The Virgin’s Night Out is novella-length (another short, Tempt Me, is offered with the e-book purchase, but not reviewed here); when I reached the 60% mark of the file and the story ended, I was bereft. Even during the few pages I had to spend with them, Sloane and Boone crept into my heart and I didn’t want to leave them. I mathed for y’all. The Virgin’s Night Out is around 158 pages—plan to read it one sitting, because there’s no...

Review: Kissed by a SEAL by Cat Johnson

Review: Kissed by a SEAL by Cat Johnson Kissed by a SEAL Author: Cat Johnson Reviewer: Jen Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Kissed by a SEAL is the fourth book in Ms. Johnson’s delightful Hot SEALs series, which follows the lives of former Navy SEAL teammates who have remained close friends. While each book is a standalone romance, almost all of the characters are featured in each of the stories, giving readers the opportunity to better know the players involved from the start. Darci Mann, sister of former SEAL Rick, is often present when the guys get together. She has long lusted after Zane (to his ignorance), and she was a bit heartbroken when he found love...
