Review: Winter Halo by Keri Arthur

Review: Winter Halo by Keri Arthur Winter Halo Author: Keri Arthur Reviewer: Jen Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Winter Halo, the second installment of Ms. Arthur’s Outcast series, picks up just after the action-packed conclusion of the first book. The series follows Tiger, a human-shifter-vampire hybrid known as a déchet, as she works to save a number of young children captured for nefarious purposes. The fantasy-based world is detailed and complex, and I recommend starting with book 1: City of Light, to best understand this multifaceted mythology (see my review for City of Light for more detail on the world). However, Ms. Arthur does a fantastic job recapping the important points of the first...

Review: Addicted by Elle Kennedy

Review: Addicted by Elle Kennedy Addicted Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: If you love dystopian stories, but want the romance element a little more *ahem* adult—and smokin’ hot—, Elle Kennedy’s Outlaws series should be on your reader radar. In Addicted, we get a phenomenal friends-to-lovers story that runs us through a multitude of emotions and is a gripping story I couldn’t put down. Okay. I had to pace myself, because I actually had stuff to accomplish. While it isn’t totally necessary to read the first title in the series, Claimed, I’d recommend it. It’s a good story, and after reading for a few minutes, all the great characterization...

Review: Wish upon a Wedding by LuAnn McLane

Review: Wish upon a Wedding by LuAnn McLane Wish upon a Wedding Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: The premises with Wish upon a Wedding is not new. If you’ve watched the 1987 movie Can’t Buy Me Love or 2003’s Love Don’t Cost A Thing, you know the basic storyline: girl poses as boy’s girlfriend to get solve whatever the issue is. In those movies, the fake girlfriend was supposed to help with the boys’ popularity, while in this case it is Sophia who posses as the girlfriend to try to get Avery’s sister to stop trying to get him back together with his ex-fiance, who is a southern piece of work. OY!! Perfume...

Review: Blazing Earth by Terri Brisbin

Review: Blazing Earth by Terri Brisbin Blazing Earth Author: Terri Brisbin Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: In this third installment of the Stone Circles, the tone of the novel changes. Though I liked the journey of Tolan and Thea, there was a more somber feeling and desperation to the world.  It seems the plight of our heroes has reached a pinnacle in Blazing Earth. ***Please note that this series builds upon the previous novel.  Therefore there may be inadvertent spoilers in this review.  You have been warned.*** This is a tough review to write because I do not want to spoil the novel, but I do feel as if the progression of...

Review: A Covert Affair by Katie Reus

Review: A Covert Affair by Katie Reus A Covert Affair Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: A Covert Affair is the fifth offering in the Deadly Ops series.  This romantic suspense series follows ultra-secretive NSA operatives as they combat evil (both domestic and foreign) while finding their soulmates along the way.  Gikany and Una overall liked the story of Nathan and Amelia. In this installment we follow Nathan, an operative who was wounded in the previous novel.  He has recovered and is returning to duty on a mission that reconnects him to his lost love, Amelia.  When they were young, Amelia broke Nathan’s heart and it seems neither of...

Review: Midnight Revenge by Elle Kennedy

Review: Midnight Revenge by Elle Kennedy Midnight Revenge Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I’ve been reading the Killer Instinct series from the beginning. I’ve been ITCHING to get my hands on D’s story. Until now, he reminded me a lot of J.R. Ward’s Zhadist. I think I’m still processing his character a little, but I’m not quite as inclined to draw the comparison anymore. Here’s the thing, everyone loves a damaged hero. It seems the more screwed up they are, the more we fall for them. While I may have swooned a time or two over D’s jaded innocence, I don’t think he’s my new book boyfriend or anything....

Review: City of Light by Keri Arthur

Review: City of Light by Keri Arthur City of Light Author: Keri Arthur Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C What I’m Talking About: City of Light kicks of a new, futuristic fantasy series from Keri Arthur. In this unique world, there was a five-year race war between humans and shifters over a hundred years ago. The weapons used by the shifters ripped open portals to another dimension, allowing all sorts of dangerous “Others,” such as wraiths and vampires, into the world, making it extremely dangerous to live outside the walled cities of light. The story is shared in first person POV of Tiger, the lone déchet who survived the devastating race war. Déchets were human-created beings with...
