Review: Blood Kiss by J.R. Ward

Review: Blood Kiss by J.R. Ward Blood Kiss Author: J.R. Ward Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Blood Kiss is the debut novel in Ms. Ward’s spin-off series, Black Dagger Legacy.  For fans of the series, it is a fascinating look at how the Black Dagger Brotherhood will increase the number of soldiers along with checking in on previous couples.  Those new to the world may enjoy it, but won’t have the full appreciate as followers will. I enjoyed the continuing story of Marissa and Butch: that the happily-ever-after (HEA) continues but not without work and choice.  The fact that Butch tries to shield Marissa, even though her work brings her face to...

Review: Edge of Danger by Katie Reus

Review: Edge of Danger by Katie Reus Edge of Danger Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Overall, we liked the latest installment in Ms. Reus’s Deadly Ops series, Edge of Danger.  The political suspense drama kept us glued to the pages even though the romantic journey struck an odd chord with us. After the last novel in the Deadly Ops series, we wondered who the newest big bad would be and what would happen next.  We were not disappointed.  Having the DEA agents we briefly met in the previous novel, Shattered Duty, take point in this one was a nice transition.  Tucker was a fascinating character in Shattered Duty...

Review: Written in the Stars by LuAnn McLane

Review: Written in the Stars by LuAnn McLane Written in the Stars Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Written in the Stars is a fun, flirty, fall read about second chances and learning to love, even when it is scary. And Cricket Creek couldn’t be a more perfect setting. As usual, the characters are spunky and spicy with the perfect amount of chemistry right from the start. Grace, with her English upbringing, is an awesome counter balance to Mason and his down home southern ways. Their struggle felt real without being overly heavy, and I loved the theme of finding home in unexpected places. The secondary storyline involving Becca and Jimmy could...

Review: Raging Sea by Terri Brisbin

Review: Raging Sea by Terri Brisbin Raging Sea Author: Terri Brisbin Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Even though I loved William in the first novel (and still do), I feel that Raging Sea is better than the previous novel, Rising Fire for several reasons. First, the connection and journey of Ran and Soren were stronger, more complex, and therefore a little more dramatic.  Second, the world-building is set so it was very easy to step into the world and be immersed in the plot, which was captivating.  And finally, the novel flowed really well. William is still my favorite hero in this series (and he does appear in Raging Sea).  I enjoyed...

Review: Claimed by Elle Kennedy

Review: Claimed by Elle Kennedy Claimed Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: *wipes drool from chin* You. Guys. I have absolutely NO idea how to coherently explain how IN LOVE I am will Claimed, Elle Kennedy’s first title in her Outlaw series. First, I want to clearly state—for the record—I am in a book coma. I also stayed up WAAAYYY too late reading last night because of this title. Also, don’t let my genre category-thing below mislead you: Claimed is post-apocalyptic/dystopian/erotic romance. Apparently, retailers don’t have that category. THEY SHOULD. I’d be all over it. Of course, future titles in this category have a pretty high bar to meet,...

Review: Chase the Darkness by J.D. Tyler

Review: Chase the Darkness by J.D. Tyler Chase the Darkness Author: J.D. Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: The Alpha Pack series continues to be a solid, fun, escape read with release of Chase the Darkness, the seventh book in the series.  Overall we liked Micah and Jacee’s story and the ever intriguing character and world. This novel continues the story of Micah, an alpha pack team member who was imprisoned and tortured by Bowman in an attempt to create super soldiers.  Micah has been in a state of long-term healing from the physical and emotional trauma he suffered.  Scarred on the inside and out, Gikany and Una have been waiting...

Review: Midnight Captive by Elle Kennedy

Review: Midnight Captive by Elle Kennedy Midnight Captive Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I thought Elle Kennedy’s Killer Instincts series couldn’t get any better. After Morgan & Noelle’s book, I didn’t think *any* hero besides D would do for me. Well, I was wrong. Sean and Bailey LIT UP the pages of Midnight Captive. Full of sexual tension and intense hotness, I don’t even know if I can pick a favorite Hottie McNaughtyBody from Morgan’s crew anymore. Oh, and suspense? I NEVER saw that ending coming. NEV-ER. I really like Bailey. With her own secrets, revealed within the novel, she is the perfect pairing for Sean. I identified with...

Review: Shattered Duty by Katie Reus

Review: Shattered Duty by Katie Reus Shattered Duty Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Shattered Duty is our favorite Deadly Ops novel so far! We enjoyed the story of Levi and Selene. We liked the connections between them and the slow burn of their romance. Despite an overwhelming initial attraction, the time they take made their romance solid and believable. Considering the emotional scars that Levi has, their slow pace was perfect. The conflicts and challenges in their relationship were also spot-on, considering how they met. We really enjoyed how they worked and struggled with each other as they tried to not just get what they wanted but...

Review: Walking on Sunshine by LuAnn McLane

Review: Walking on Sunshine by LuAnn McLane Walking on Sunshine Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: If I had to describe Walking on Sunshine in one phrase, I would say it is “Country Charm meets British Class with just a touch of Southern Sass.” Per McLane’s usual style we have two lovely couples looking for love, or at least two couples who find love when neither is really looking for it. Garrett and Mattie are our young twenty-somethings. Garret is a British boy who has come to Cricket Creek to help his dad at My Way Records. He stumbles into Mattie’s restaurant for breakfast as she is chasing Rusty the Ham-stealing...
