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....

Review: Between a Wolf and a Hard Place by Terry Spear

Review: Between a Wolf and a Hard Place by Terry Spear Between A Wolf And A Hard Place Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Picking up where the last in the series left off, Between a Wolf and a Hard Place follows the developing relationship between Ellie MacTire, one of the new owners of the Silver Town Inn, and Brett Silver, local news reporter and third–born of the Silver quadruplets. As it revisits the setting and characters that were established in the fifth Silver Town Wolf story, A Silver Wolf Christmas, slipping back into the world of the novel was easy to do. While I’ve really enjoyed this series, as well as those connected to...

Review: Undiscovered by Sara Humphreys

Review: Undiscovered by Sara Humphreys Undiscovered Author: Sara Humphreys Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: All in all, Undiscovered is a good start to a new story arc in the Amoveo series.  Gikany and Una found the mythology of the dragons interesting and Zander and Rena’s romance satisfying although there were a couple of rough elements. In the Amoveo series, dragon shifters were believed to be extinct.  However, they are not.  Zander and his identical twin brother Zed are the only dragon shifters left.  A curse has left Zander stuck in his human form and Zed in hibernation in dragon form for the last 500 years.  What little we learn...

Review: Her True Match by Paige Tyler

Review: Her True Match by Paige Tyler Her True Match Author: Paige Tyler Reviewer: Una Rating: C  What I’m Talking About: After Her Rogue Alpha, I wasn’t sure what to expect in the next X-Ops novel.  This review has been tough to write.  I wasn’t sure how to articulate my feelings on it.  Though I eagerly wanted to see the story of Dreya Clark, I was a bit disappointed with Her True Match. I’m completely torn about this novel.  On the one hand I felt it was a bit lackluster.  The romantic journey of Dreya and Braden reminded me too much of Ivy and Landon.  Though there are distinct differences in plot points, the essence of...

Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders Under Her Skin Author: Adriana Anders Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Here’s what I know after reading Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders. Gimme. More. Thoughtful, well-developed characters with a wonderfully paced arc drove me through the entire book. I loved Uma. For reasons. Um. And this one needs a trigger warning for domestic abuse—mostly the verbal/emotional kind, but there’s physical too. And that b@stard was twisted. But…she is fierce, feisty, and is going to be a difficult character to forget. I loved Ivan because he’s not the typical alpha male we traditionally see in contemporary romance. As his story unraveled, I was increasingly drawn into...

Review: Wolf Unleashed by Paige Tyler

Review: Wolf Unleashed by Paige Tyler Wolf Unleashed Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una really enjoyed this latest installment in the SWAT series.  Wolf Unleashed was a well-rounded, suspenseful, and passionately sweet story. Alex and Lacey’s story sticks out as the best so far in the series.  We really enjoyed their ordinary meeting.  So far, most couples in this series have meet under nefarious conditions.  Lacey is a vet and who Alex just happened to meet when he took the SWAT pet in for his check-up.  This sweet romance was different from the previous pairings, and we enjoyed the normalcy of it.  Alex and Lacey’s...

Review: Picture Perfect Wedding by Lynnette Austin

Review: Picture Perfect Wedding by Lynnette Austin Picture Perfect Wedding Author: Lynnette Austin Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: True to form, Picture Perfect Wedding is a fun and spunky story of second chances, forgiveness and going home again. Set is the picturesque low country just outside of Savannah, Georgia, and filled with colorful characters, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit: reconnecting with old friends like Cole and Jenni Beth and getting to know new friends like Beck and Tansey, the spunky couple this story revolves around. Beck and Tansy were high school sweethearts, engaged to be married, and then Tansy married another man. Although Beck swears he’s moved on, the chemistry between the two doesn’t lie. Somehow they...

Review: A Sure Thing by Marie Harte

Review: A Sure Thing by Marie Harte A Sure Thing Author: Marie Harte Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: A Sure Thing is two stories.  One is the love story of medically retired Major Landon Donnigan and psychologist Ava Rosenthal. The other, unlike most erotic contemporary romances, is the story of their families.  In this instance, they are not just periphery characters that come and go to support the main storyline.  They are loud, messy, and interject themselves all over the place. They become integral to the way in which the love story develops. And like most families, they have issues. The Donnigans series is preceded by the four book series The McCauley’s—their cousins. ...
