Review: Rising Fire by Terri Brisbin

Review: Rising Fire by Terri Brisbin Rising Fire Author: Terri Brisbin Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Rising Fire is the debut novel in a new fantasy romance series, Stone Circles.  Although it was slow to start, it blossomed into a promising first installment, and I look forward to the next one. The beginning of this novel was like the start of a good chess match: slow to start as the players move their pieces into their battle positions, then once all the pieces are on the board, the excitement begins.  This is how Rising Fire started to me.  It needed some world-building, and pieces needed to evolve and be maneuvered into place. ...

Review: Hunter Reborn by Katie Reus

Review: Hunter Reborn by Katie Reus Hunter Reborn Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: After thoroughly loving the previous novel, Avenger’s Heat, Gikany and Una anxiously awaited Hunter Reborn, hoping to learn more about vampires.  Although we got more than we expected in some ways, we were a little disappointed in others. First, we loved the story of Aiden and Larissa.  Not only did we get to learn more about the vampires, we have a vampire-shifter pairing.  We enjoyed that the estrangement of these star-crossed lovers was caused by others and that their reconnection wasn’t hampered by misunderstandings.  Larissa’s amnesia could have made the story seem very clichéd,...

Review: Ahead in the Heat by Lorelie Brown

Review: Ahead in the Heat by Lorelie Brown Ahead in the Heat Author: Lorelie Brown Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Quickie Review. Warm weather. Rippling ocean water. A man out of his element, and a woman longing to return to hers…even though she didn’t know it. Sean and Annie’s story is one of the sweetest I’ve read in a while. Athletes have always intrigued me. From the time I entered high school, I have always appreciated a fit male form as a work of art. Athletes are artists. They sculpt their bodies to perfection. When they fail, or are injured, there’s all sorts of emotions. Reasoning, begging, and rehab. Lots and lots of rehab....

Sunday Snippets: Avenger’s Heat by Katie Reus

Sunday Snippets: Avenger’s Heat by Katie Reus  About the Book Avenger’s Heat Author:  Katie Reus Publisher:   Signet Released:  February 4, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet Noah just nodded, but alarm jumped in his gut when Erin froze.  A haunted look flickered in her mercurial gray eyes for a fraction of a second as she glanced around. “What is it?” Blinking, she shook her head as if trying to clear her thoughts, then looked back up at him, a false smile on her face.  “Nothing.” Every time she shut him out like that it was like a dagger through his chest. Sometimes she let him see the part of her she kept hidden from the world but he was...

Review: Wolf’s Fall by J.D. Tyler

Review: Wolf’s Fall by J.D. Tyler Wolf’s Fall Author: J.D. Tyler Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: C+ What We’re Talking About: Wolf’s Fall is the sixth novel in the Alpha Pack series. Gikany and Una had been looking forward to Nick’s story – there was so much potential. Unfortunately, for us Nick and Calla’s story fizzled and left us a bit disappointed. Note: This review contains spoilers from earlier books in the series. The books in this series build on each other to a degree. At the end of the previous novel, Nick was still recovering from the traumatic events of his capture. The ending of Cole’s Redemption gave us a glimpse of Calla and...

Review: Sweet Harmony by LuAnn McLane

Review: Sweet Harmony by LuAnn McLane Sweet Harmony Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I completely enjoyed Sweet Harmony by LuAnne McLane. It was a fun, sweet, romantic read, perfect for sitting by the pool or for reading on a cool rainy fall afternoon with a cup of cocoa. As usual Cricket Creek did not fail to welcome me to their small, sweet southern town complete with quirky and interesting characters. This episode in Cricket Creek revolves around Cat Carson and Jeff Greenfield, both country music stars who are thrown together from the moment Cat pulls into Cricket Creek from Nashville. Their banter is funny, Cat’s clumsy tendencies and Jeff’s...
