Review: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson

Review: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson Cursed By Destiny Author: Cecy Robson  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: ****Due to the nature of this series, this review contains some spoilers.  We enjoy the Weird Girls series and although there are not blatant spoilers – there are some general giveaways.  You have been warned!**** Cursed by Destiny is a book we have been dying to get our hands on.  After the cliffhanger of Celia walking away with Misha because Aric is to marry another pureblood – we were heartbroken with her. A Cursed Embrace left us bewildered: the Tribe devastated the weres and was growing in power, Aric and Celia’s relationship destroyed,...

Review: His Untamed Desire by Katie Reus

Review: His Untamed Desire by Katie Reus His Untamed Desire Author: Katie Reus  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una enjoy the Moon Shifter series so when we saw this novella “extra” we jumped on it.  His Untamed Desire is a quick and fun read.  It does not need to be read in conjunction with the series (hint: great way to be introduced to the series) but it is a bit of back-story and set up for the upcoming release of Avenger’s Heat.  If you follow the series, you might want to pick it up. His Untamed Desire is the story of Hector and Daphne.  It seems that Daphne is...

Review: Flamebound by Tessa Adams

Review: Flamebound by Tessa Adams Flamebound Author: Tessa Adams Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Tessa Adams’ second book in her Lonestar Witch series, Flamebound, had promise for me. I absolutely adored the blurb, but when I actually got to the meat of the book, I was left feeling meh. I was actually kinda geeked about the whole love-triangle thing with Xandra, Declan and another of Declan’s ex-girlfriends, and this trope managed to materialize for a hot minute. I did receive an ARC of this title, so I’m hoping that several things that made me cringe were taken care of with a last pass prior to publishing. I also wasn’t keen on...

Review: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson

Review: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson A Cursed Moon Author: Cecy Robson  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: A Cursed Moon is a novella that takes place between A Cursed Embrace and Cursed by Destiny.  This is a special novella as our narrator is Bren and not Celia (who is our point of view for both the series and the prequel novella, The Weird Girls).  We are given the opportunity of seeing Celia through someone else’s eyes.  It allows us to see that for all her strength and protectiveness, she is truly fragile when it comes to her self-esteem and happiness.  Bren sees a beautiful woman who doesn’t seem to know...

Review: Darklove by Elle Jasper

Review: Darklove by Elle Jasper Darklove Author: Elle Jasper  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A: Loved It What I’m Talking About: I jumped into the Dark Ink Chronicles a little late. I started with book #3. It’s OK though. I got to know and love our kick-ass, sassy heroine, Riley Poe and her hunka-hunka burnin’ love, Eligius Dupre. And then, in book #4, I watched everything fall apart. Book #5 of the Dark Ink Chronicles, Darklove is a fantastic book. With emotions high, Riley and Noah set out to rid Inverness, Scotland of a pesky rogue vampire problem only to find themselves neatly primed to vanquish a new paranormal being. Well, not so much new as...

Review: Moonlight Kiss by LuAnn McLane

Review: Moonlight Kiss by LuAnn McLane Moonlight Kiss Author: LuAnn McLean Reviewer: Ang Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: LuAnn McLean paints a lovely small town picture in Moonlight Kiss. She nails the charm, quirks, nosiness, friendliness, and sense of community you’d experience in a small southern town as you walk the streets of Cricket Creek with Addison and Reid. She fully embraces you in the feel and flavor of this small Kentucky town, a place I wouldn’t mind visiting if it actually existed. In addition to the sweet southern charm of the town, Ms. McLean writes engaging and sweet characters who’s chemistry you feel right from the start. Addison stumbles into Cricket Creek running from a...

Sunday Snippet – Targeted

Sunday Snippet – Targeted  About the Book Targeted Author:  Katie Reus Publisher:   Signet Released:  October 1, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “What is this place?” Sophie finally said as she slowly pulled out the pepper spray from her pocket.  He’d parked in between two unused warehouses he’d scouted out earlier.  Bayside Marketplace wasn’t that far from where they were – hell, he could actually see Port Boulevard Bridge jutting over Biscayne Bay – but for how quiet and desolate the area seemed, they might as well be a thousand miles away.  He glanced at her hand and shook his head. “You can keep that if it makes you feel better, but you don’t need it against me. ...

Review: Targeted by Katie Reus

Review: Targeted by Katie Reus Targeted Author: Katie Reus  Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A-, 4 Stars What We’re Talking About: Targeted is the debut novel in the new Deadly Ops series.  This is a new and exciting military romance series from Katie Reus.  Gikany and Una volunteered for this series since we enjoy Ms. Reus’s Moon Shifter series. Overall, we enjoyed Targeted.  However, we thought it was a solid 3.75 but decided to give it the 4 star rating because it is a debut novel in what we anticipate will be a military romance series we’ll stick with. One of the most compelling elements of the story was Sophie.  We absolutely loved her! ...

Sunday Snippet – Vicious Moon

Sunday Snippet – Vicious Moon    About the Book Vicious Moon Author:  Lee Roland Publisher:   Signet Released:  July 2, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet We sat at the table, and oh, it felt good to be there.  Stupid, I was totally stupid.  But I had to get to the reason I’d been kidnapped. “Gran, why did you send the Sisters of Justice after me?  That’s pretty drastic.  You must have pulled in some favors.  Especially if you got them to put up with Herschel.” “There is one Sister I call a friend.  A powerful Sister.  I asked her to find you and to take Herschel so you wouldn’t be frightened and run from them.  They probably shouldn’t...
