Review: The Right Kind of Reckless by Heather Van Fleet

Review: The Right Kind of Reckless by Heather Van Fleet The Right Kind of Reckless Author: Heather Van Fleet  Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The Right Kind of Reckless is book two in the Reckless Hearts series about best friends and ex-Marines Max, Collin, and Gavin. The first book focused on Collin. The Right Kind of Reckless is the love story of Max and Collin’s little sister Lia.  Max and Lia are star-crossed lovers, in love with each other, but unable and unwilling to tell the other because of extenuating circumstances. Did I buy the extenuating circumstances?  Mostly.  I have a habit of expecting adults to behave like adults, but the truth is they often don’t—especially...

Review: Perfect Gravity by Vivien Jackson

Review: Perfect Gravity by Vivien Jackson Perfect Gravity Author: Vivien Jackson Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Perfect Gravity is the second book in the sci-fi romance series, Tether.  Overall, I liked this installment though it had a bumpy start. This book begins before the last book, Wanted and Wired, ended.  It was a little disorienting at first as I had thought it was picking up where the previous had ended.  We are given a glimpse of Angela and Kellen reuniting since their young love breakup years before.  We learn why Angela felt the need to help protect Mari and what happens to Angela after the conclusion of Wanted and Wired. Kellen is...

Review: Drop Dead Gorgeous by Juliet Lyons

Review: Drop Dead Gorgeous by Juliet Lyons Drop Dead Gorgeous Author: Juliet Lyons Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B What I’m Talking About: This is the second title I’ve read by Ms. Lyons, and I do love her voice. There’s something about reading a story set in London and having the history aspect for a vampire whose lived several centuries that makes me a bit giddy—especially when the details are on-point. I really like the premise of this series, and I hope to read more. There were a couple things I read in Drop Dead Gorgeous that might’ve been caught in another round of editing—or it’s something I missed about the world-building in the first title that I...

Review: The Last Gentleman Standing by Jane Ashford

Review: The Last Gentleman Standing by Jane Ashford The Last Gentleman Standing Author: Jane Ashford Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: My understanding is the The Last Gentleman Standing is a re-release that was originally published some 25 years ago. This helped me understand the book so much better. The characters are fun and witty, but the character development isn’t as strong as I like, especially between Elizabeth and Derek. If they are the main couple of the book, why does the author spend so much time telling us about Belinda and the Duke? I also feel like the ending of the novel came out of nowhere. Yes, there are a few hints, but the...

Review: SEAL Wolf Undercover by Terry Spear

Review: SEAL Wolf Undercover by Terry Spear SEAL Wolf Undercover Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: I was very excited when I first learned that Ms. Spear would be intertwining the worlds of her wolf and jaguar shifter stories. Having read so many of both series, combining the two seemed like the perfect next step. And even though there was a good deal that I enjoyed about SEAL Wolf Undercover, I admit that my feelings are somewhat mixed. On the plus side, many of the more prominent things that appealed in earlier stories—including errable but lovable alpha males falling for tough, capable women—are present in SEAL Wolf Undercover. Jillian is confident,...

Review: In His Hands by Adriana Anders

Review: In His Hands by Adriana Anders In His Hands Author: Adriana Anders Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: When I was reading In His Hands, I felt like I was transported up a lonely mountain and planted in a vineyard. The feel of the vines and the selection process—which to cut and which to leave—reminded me of working with my grandmother on the concord grapes she had in her back yard. I’d listen to her talk about pruning the canes back and making sure the vines stayed on the fencing she’d made my dad set when he was a kid. As an adult, I lived in her house and tried to reclaim the...

Review: Wolf Hunt by Paige Tyler

Review: Wolf Hunt by Paige Tyler Wolf Hunt Author: Paige Tyler Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una really enjoy this series.  It’s a fascinating, engaging, and fun series.  How can it not be fun?  It mixes werewolves, SWAT, and romance together.  Ms. Tyler delivers yet another satisfying SWAT novel in Wolf Hunt. Although the series is best read from the beginning, Wolf Hunt would be a reasonable start for the series. The best part of Remy and Triana’s romance is that it is a second chance at love.  Remy and Triana were unrequited high school sweethearts.  Friends for most of their childhood, they never took that next step...

Review: Dating the Undead by Juliet Lyons

Review: Dating the Undead by Juliet Lyons Dating the Undead Author: Juliet Lyons Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: It’s been awhile since I’ve read something paranormal. I miss it. I was really excited about reading Dating the Undead, the first title in the Undead Dating Service / V-Date.com series. I wasn’t disappointed. Ms. Lyons did a fabulous job setting up her vampire world so readers would easily buy-in and suspend belief for the rules of her universe. Which is important when there’s human-vampire interaction going on. Silver is an independent young woman and she is sassy, stubborn, pretty much fearless, and able to function on her own without the assistance of a man. I...

Review: Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson

Review: Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson Wanted and Wired Author: Vivien Jackson Reviewer: Una Rating: B  What I’m Talking About: Wanted and Wired is the first in a new sci-fi romance series, Tether. Though it had a bit of a clunky slow start, I liked this new world and what seems to be a fascinating new series. The Tether world is fascinating; futuristic with a bit of a wild-west/ post-apocalyptic vibe.  I enjoyed the racial issue of organic human versus altered (cyborg/enhanced) human.  Those that feel people who have enhanced their bodies are somehow less human. Though the technology of the nanos are not fully explained, the technological advances were fascinating, especially the artificial intelligence....

Review: By Her Touch by Adriana Anders

Review: By Her Touch by Adriana Anders By Her Touch Author: Adriana Anders Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I’m an ink junkie. Anyone that knows me will tell you that. From the time I was old enough to appreciate tattoos as art, I’d wanted one of my own. I wasn’t able to get my first until around the time I’d turned forty, and now I have…a lot. ☺ They tell a story of who I have been, who I am, and who I will be. So, when I had the opportunity to read the first title of the Blank Canvas series by Adriana Anders—Under Her Skin—I jumped at the chance. I wasn’t disappointed....
