All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks

I did not like Toni.. I tried. Really I did.  But I just couldn't.  She got better by the end but I struggled with her for the whole book. If it wasn't for Ian I'm pretty sure I would have hated this book.  Well that and there were some pretty funny parts of the book.  I did laugh a few times. I wanted to punch Toni's room mate in the face.  Not only because she was a complete brat after they saved her but because of the way she treated Carlos!  ugh I wanted to to cuddle that guy up.  I hope he has a book at some point because I am in love with him.

Ian was adorable and clumsy and he did embarrassing things that made me love him even more.  Toni eventually gets better.  After she falls in love with Ian.  I almost didn't finish the book because of her though. I really freaking hope there isn't a book for Sabrina. I seriously hated her.  I have no desire to read any more about her.

Passion Unleashed by Larissa Ione

I have mixed feelings about this book.  Kinda the same as the first couple.  I liked it, just didn't love it.  It is not one I would go back and re read.  But I did love Wraith and Selena.  I love that Wraith gave himself up fully to Selena.  I liked that he didn't try to make her believe he hated her.  I always feel like that diminishes the feelings.  Why not just be honest about everything.  I mean I understand that he was going to kill her.. even though it was obvious he never was going to do that.  I think it will be interesting to see how he does with what happens at the end.  I think he will be good for the family and I love that Selena just accepted it.  Whereas I would be hesitant at first, no she went right into it.  I love that! defiantly a good match..

Anyways the book was good.  A bit long.  I felt like it was kind of dragged out and I had to fight the urge to skim certain parts but it was defiantly a good read.  You find out a ridiculous amount of information in this book.  Um especially all the stuff with Kynan!! and yay for Gem :) I love them.

Heir To the Pack by Laura Welling

 I received a free copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I actually liked this book! I was a little worried at the beginning. When Dash kept saying that Jack couldn't be his, I was honestly a little annoyed.  If the boy looks exactly like you and all you have to do it get a test, stop fighting it and just prove it either way.  That was pissing me off.  I was for sure thinking I was going to hate Dash because of that.  But he turned out to be pretty sweet.  I loved that he claimed them as his family right away and he didn't try to hide them.  That was when I decided he was a good guy.

The book did seem to drag on. She just kept rejecting him.  That always drives me crazy.  I hate waiting until the end for the good love parts.  But the story was interesting enough that I didn't mind it.. much.  I will admit that the little "twist" at the end as obvious.

I would recommend the book.  It was sweet and it was different than most werewolf books.  The only thing I didn't like is that book seem verrrrrrry long.

The Undead Next Door by Kerrelyn Sparks

I put this series down a while ago because I didn't really connect with any of the characters and a lot of the dialogue seemed so childish.  I liked Heather.  Did I connect with her? No.  But that could be because she has a child and her mind works differently than mine would. who knows.  I got a little bored with the story because she kept rejecting him.

Jean-Luc was one of my favorite males from the series so far.  I loved how he was with Heather's daughter Bethany.  The short scene where he played with the crocodile and her barbie with her was adorable and I fell in love with him right there.  If I were Heather I would have grabbed him and taken him to the nearest closet, or couch, or bath tub or whatever.  That would have sealed the deal for me.  I don't really understand why she kept rejecting him after that.

I am excited for Ivan. I am so glad he found a way to age and I am excited to read the next book where he finds his love :)

Three Hours by Dannika Dark

I love Naya! ahh.  i love everything about her.  And I loved Wheeler.  I'm not gonna lie and say I loved this book though.  It was okay but I was a little disappointed. Just because I knew Naya was going to make such a fantastic main character.  I have been waiting to read this book for awhile.  Actually I am pretty sure this book is the only reason I kept reading the series.  I have always felt drawn to her ever since the very first book and I knew her and Wheeler were going to end up together after April and Reno's book.  So I got super excited.. but honestly it wasn't that great.  I think it was one of those where I got my hopes up and expected too much from the book and so naturally it let me down.

Still I am glad that I read it, glad that Naya finally has a good man and I am glad that I finally know all of Wheeler's story.  It has been obvious for awhile that there was way more to him than what everyone else thought.  He's one of my favorite of the brothers so I am happy for him.  They are a really great match even with her not being a wolf.  It works.

I will say that the ending was fantastic.  I am super excited that a certain someone is gone.  I have always hated him with a passion.  I think it will make for a fantastic book if Dannika Dark every decides to bring him back.  Which I don't see how she couldn't.

Four Days by Dannika Dark

By far my favorite of this series so far.  I went into it expecting to hate it because Ivy has kind of annoyed me in the past books.  I have always loved Enzo but Ivy.. I don't know.  I just never clicked with her but I love her!  What an amazing woman.  I would never have guess all that was going on under her seemingly carefree attitude. And everyone knows my love for Dannika Dark's Mageri series and I love that the Cross family from that series has a HUGE part of Ivy.  I was heartbroken over the end of the Mageri series and with just this little bit I am no longer heartbroken.  Everything feels settled.  I hate reviews that give away spoilers so I can't say how they intermingle but it is huge and it makes me love Ivy so much more because it shows just how strong she really is.

Honestly she is one of my favorite characters now and it makes me sad that she is moving over to Enzo's house and probably won't play such a big role in the rest of the series.  I guess I will see if that is true or not.   I hope I am wrong because I have even grown to like the way she speaks in riddles sometimes.  It seems to calm some of the other characters.

Shine by Dannika Dark

I am so sad that the series is over! It is always a bittersweet moment when you realize that you are on your last book and when you get to that last chapter and you can just tell the author is wrapping things up.  I loved this whole freaking series.  This book was no different.  It made me laugh, cry and want to throw my kindle across the room at times.  Dannika Dark did a fantastic job at closing the series.  Shine wasn't too emotional.  It still had a lot of drama with Silver and Logan that we have had in the last couple of books and you find out everything about Silver in this one obviously.  Now that I know everything I love it so much more. It is defiantly a series I will go back and re read at some point down the road!

Broken Dove by Kristen Ashley

I liked this one.  Not as much as I liked the others but it was still pretty good. I can't quite put my finger on it, maybe it's because he has children with Maddie's twin. Maybe it's because I am putting myself in her shoes and I am a jealous little girl and I would have a very hard time knowing how much Apollo loved his wife.  And he was a jackwad to her at first.  He turned out to be a dreamy man thats for sure and the sex scenes were some of the best of the series but I am not sure I would have been able to get past some of the crap he put her through at first.

The thing I loved most about this book was that the four girls from the other world all got together and got to know each other.  I loved how they interacted and how they formed a bond that will last a life time because they know what they are going through.  I loved seeing the men together as well.  That really is what made the book great for me.  I wasn't a huge fan of Apollo and Maddie. I mean I think Maddie was amazing. It takes a freaking STRONG woman to go into a relationship knowing and seeing that a man loved as deeply as he did, so I guess it's not that I don't like them.  I just had a hard time putting myself in her shoes.  But the rest of the book I LOVED! because  I loved seeing the couples together!

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

I picked up this book because everyone raves about it.. and uh.. what? Parts of it were okay but most of the time I was like what the hell is happening? Most of the book is about a bunch of kids fooling around and taking nothing seriously. IT was something different than what I normally read so I thought I would try it but it just kept getting worse and worse with the immaturity.  I pushed my way through just because I hate not finishing a book and mainly because I wanted to see if she would actually hook up with Ezra but I wish I didn't because that ending.. REALLY? why.  just why would you have to do that? Let's just make everyone miserable. Totally makes sense.  Great okay. Bye.

Gravity by Dannika Dark

Sweet baby jesus I thought I was going to have a heart attack with this freaking book.  I mean my heart felt like it was breaking.   I get way to emotionally attached to characters! I wanted (okay so maybe I did) cry for Silver and Logan multiple times during this book.  I wanted to hate Silver for what she was doing but maybe it was what had to be done.  Maybe it could have been solved a different way.  We will never know.  But oh god when she cut his hair!! I wanted to scream and then throw my kindle into the wall because omg poor Logan.  So freaking heartbroken.  And when he showed up after she got drunk in the bar. seriously I can't even. Logan has completely ruined real men for me.   I don't think I would  have been able to do what Silver did.

And then there is the whole Nox/Sunny thing.  Again Heartbreak hotel up in here because that did make me cry right at my desk at work.  My co workers think I'm crazy.  But I will say that Sunny is one of the most beautifully uplifting characters in the book.  I love her.

And then you have Justice hooking up with Paige.  Yay. That man deserves some goodness.  Because he is awesome and now that Logan and Silver are getting all serious and she won't need a guardian he wants her to call him father. helloooo. more heartbreaks.

I loved this book.  I don't usually like emotional books. I hate crying but this one was mostly good cries. defiantly worth it!  I am sad that there is only one more book in this series.  Excited thought to see how it all ends.

Fantastical by Kristen Ashley

"Does this mean I'm a princess?" I asked       He started at me looking annoyed for a second then he say back and signed, "That's what usually happens when a woman marries a prince." ..... "Oh my God, I'm a Princess."
I just want to say why the hell can't I wake up and find out I am married to a prince. I would totally rock at being a princess. sigh.

Cora is one of my favorite heroines of all time.  She is brave, funny, lovably and is nice to everyone.  I loved how she would just go off on rants and Tor would just sit there. Adorable. She didn't just give up when everyone hated her. Yeah sure she cried for a little bit, had a little pity party but who the hell wouldn't.  Hello she woke up in a different world where everyone spat at her! But then she got over it and turned everything around and made the people love her just by being her.  And to me the character wasn't like overly fake.  You know how it is when they are so nice that its unbelievable.  Yeah well Cora wasn't.  Kristen Ashley did an amazing job at making an annoyingly nice person 100% lovable.

They spent time in our world!! this is what I have been waiting for! The whole thing with the bad Cora and the other Noc was pretty cool too.  I mean kinda sad for the other Noc but I loved that some of the story finally took place in our world.

Cant wait to read the next one!

Spark by Brigid Kemmerer

Alright.  I have figured out what my issue with  this series is.  Okay well ONE issue.  There are never really conclusions.  I know this is only the second book but I don't feel like either book really ended.  That would be just fine if the next book didn't have a different MC, but the next one just moves on to a different brother (or Hunter) and I am just sitting here like um what?  I think I would actually really love the books if it weren't for this.  Idk something with the POV is weird.  I feel like the first book was more about becca and Hunter instead of Chris.. even though the next book is about Hunter.  See and not I am even getting confused.

 I loved Layne though.  Nerdy girl putty the asshole in his place.  That's just awesome writing magic.  I love it.  Ugh and I will read the next one just because I freakin need to know what happens next.  because I don't feel like anything was resolved at all in this book.  Nothing.

Sterling by Dannika Dark

I surprisingly loved this book.  I wasn't a huge fan of Dannika Dark's Seven series.. okay I have only read 2 of those but I wasn't wowed by them so I didn't expect to like it as much as I did.  Okay well I liked the actual story Zoe annoyed me a couple times, sure but what female character doesn't.  I can't remember exactly how old they said she was but I want to say late 20s.. I think.. and most of the time she honestly does not act like that. She does tend to act childish in a lot of situations. The other thing that did annoy me was her situation with the men.  Adam was perfections all wrapped up in an ex military body and instead of being up front and saying, "oh hey I will kill you if we touch, we probably shouldn't do that."  She leads him on for awhile.  That bothers me because I love Adam.  And honestly the ending what he does for her.. She so doesn't deserve him. At all.

Okay I just ranted about the MC and it sounds like I don't like the book but I do.  The story itself is what makes it good. It's different and thats what I like about it and  I think she will get better as she grows with her Mage abilities and as a person.  So the next books will be better.

Dark Magic by Christine Feehan

Alright y'all I am so disappointed about my Gregori.  I have pushed this series up in my list to read just so I could read this book because I HAD to know about Gregori. I was so sure I was going to marry him and have his babies but now that I have read about the Dark One.. I do not like him at all. He kind of broke my little heart.  And I HATE Savannah.  You would think because she is the daughter of Mikhail and Raven that she would be a lot stronger but I found her to be weak.  She whined ALOT! I wanted to punched her on more than one occasion and hello how do you just forgive someone who brutally takes your innocence because he was close to his dark side.  uh NO! You do not worry for him. You punch him.. huh. I may be little violent it seems.  but it's the truth.  She just let the shit go.  The only thing I liked about her was her sarcasm.  She was funny later on with Gary, the human.  I liked her relationship with him.  And I guess she makes Gregori smile in his head or whatever so thats cool. But I hate weak females.

Okay so I thought I liked the whole life mate thing. Turns out I don't.  I do not like that the males can force the female to make them slaves.  I keep getting more and more upset the more I read this series.  Jacques really pissed me off because he forces his life mate to do so much and Gregori topped him.  There is a difference between being a protective alpha male and what Gregori was doing to Savannah.

I will eventually get back to this series but I am moving on for awhile.  Julian will have to wait for now. I think I have read too many of these books in a row and I am getting pissed at the domineering males. Plus the stories are all kind of the same so far.. it's kind of getting boring and predictable.

Souls Unfractured by Tillie Cole

Oh man.  I thought the las book of this series was intense.. This one was more.  I love Flame! ahhh.  I may even love him more than Styx. Yeah he's a little crazy but  Maddie takes the crazy away.

It's a story of two completely broken souls that slowly start to make a shitty world into a better one.  The story is beautiful, I mean they can't even touch each other at first. I loved that the book was kind of just centered on them.  There wasn't a lot of outside characters around.  And Maddie wasn't really taken back to the order.  I loved seeing them grow together.  There really isn't another word for it but beautiful.  It is very simple and pure.  I loved how straight forward everything was.  how he would just ask her why she was blushing or she would ask what he was thinking and he would be completely honest.  You don't see that anymore. Beautiful.

And I loved seeing how much AK and Viking loved him.  Really Flame would be a difficult guy to love when he went into one of his episodes before Maddie.  But they did and they did it with zero judgement and zero tolerance for anyone treating him different. And now AK with little Ash! So I love AK and Viking very much.  a

I will say this.  There is a lot of darker subjects that even I had a hard time reading.  I had to skim through some of it.  There was a lot more in this book because it was coming from both of the main characters backgrounds and then you had Brother Cain POV in the Order compound and all the abuse that was going on there.  So I will not lie, That was getting to be a little bit much for me.. only so much child abuse I can read about. Beware of that if you are going to read this book.

I saw that there was going to be a book for Rider.. I do not know if ill read it.  I think it is hinting that he will end up with Phoebe. And okay good for him but I don't think I can take a whole book where it is based at The Order compound.  Honestly it is so hard to stomach.  I know its all fake but I still want to hunt them all down.... who am I kidding I will end up reading it because The Hangmen will be involved and I love them. sigh.  Way to draw me in Tillie Cole. Way to draw me in.

Heart Recaptured by Tillie Cole

I liked this book but not as much as the first one.  The first one I absolutely loved.  But Styx and his studder is the greatest thing of all time and no amount looks can beat that. So I knew Ky wasn't going to live up to Styx.

This one I had trouble reading though.  I can't explain why exactly.. Lilah. She just broke me.  Everything about her broke me.  I can't even comprehend how she sees herself and wanting to go back to that place.  Her life is absolutely tragic and I have no way of connecting to her at all.. on any level. I mean I understood why she felt she needed to get back to the order.. kind of. no see I don't.  I can't even comprehend that. That's why I liked the first book more because Mae wanted out.

And holy crap the abuse in this book is so much worse than it was in the first one.  Honestly I read a lot of darker romance books and this one was pretty rough.  If you can't stomach violence and rape then for real do not read it.

Flame and Maddie's story I think is going to scare me.. I'm going to read it because I have to know.. but I am a little nervous about him.  He seems to be just as off as the girls are. We shall see!

Because of Low by Abbi Glines

I have read all of the other books from this series except this one.. Yes I know very strange.  But I hated Marcus and Willow. I never wanted to know about their story. Ugh and I can't say that I am overly excited now that I know it.   I like them later on when they are preggo. But I skipped this book originally because I wanted to read Cage and Eva's story and I couldn't wait then I just never went back to them.  I had some down time and since its a short book I though I would squeeze it in.

I know that Willow had a hard life.. Really it sucks and it is sad but at the same time its not like she was completely alone.  Her life wasn't completely terrible.  She had Cage.  Okay and let's just talk about her relationship with Cage... um.. yeah. it was creepy.  She talks about how he is like her brother, I can honestly say that I have NEVER acted like that with my brother. Yes I realize they aren't actual siblings but she kept pointing out that she saw him as a brother.  From Cage's story you can't see how weird the relationship is because Cage doesn't act that way with her anymore because of Marcus.  Maybe I am being dramatic but I thought it was a very strange relationship between people who saw each other as siblings.

I love Abbi Glines.  Her books are funny and then men are sexy as hell but I hated this one.. okay I hate Marcus and Willow. They are my least favorite couple from her Sea Breeze series. And I am sad I wasted my time actually reading this one. Maybe I need to go re-read Crit's story to make me happy about Abbi again :)

Dark Gold by Christine Feehan

Again I liked it but I didn't love the book. But I love the world it is all based in.  I have read a couple reviews for books later on and a lot of complaints I see are that it's the same story over and over again and I can defiantly see that happening.  This is only the 3rd book and I can already see it but I still want more.. So that says something there I think.

I could not stand Alex.. I thought she was kind of whiney and for someone who only wanted to take care of her brother she really didn't do a great job..  Please explain why you would leave your brother with a homeless man? How in the hell did that happen.. Okay so you have talked to him a few times, and I guess you are kind of his friend but I mean really?.. I don't know I had issues with that right away. And then later on she was so dead set on proving Aiden wrong that she tried to walk into the sun? Yeah and leave Josh to complete strangers. Yeah, No.  Some crappy things happened to her. I get that and no one can know wha they would do unless they were in that situation but I just feel like running into to the sun to prove that it won't kill you when you can feel it burning you.. ugh.  Stupid.

Aiden I liked. He was much better than Jacques.  Thats for sure.  I have come to realize that all the men in this series are going to be overbearing cavemen.  Which I can deal with as long as nothing is actually forced and I don't think Aiden forced Alex to really do anything the way Jac did.  He was terrible.

anyways I am very excited for the next book because yay Gregori! Although after the little bit of info you learn about him and his life mate in this book I have a feeling I may not like the next book that much but we shall see.

Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione

I wasn't going to write a review for this book book but I changed my mind. I liked this book because you learn a lot of important information about all the characters and about their world.  I did not like Shade and Runa though.  Okay I know Shade had his issues.  He couldn't love anyone yada yada whatevers. But the way he treated Runa and then ohhhh now that she's this badass warg she's alight. I know the circumstances were jacked up and everything worked out in the end but still.  Shade is defiantly not my favorite. And I guess I had no real big issues with Runa

The bad guy.. which I will not say who it is but very good bad guy! totally did not see it coming.  and he was a devious little man.

I also love Kynan and Gem.  Well let me clarify. I hate the way Kynan treats Gem.  Clearly he is a dick.   But I think they are fantastic side characters.  I kinda want to kill Kynan for how Gem looses her v-card though.. Because damn she has to live with that forever. What a shitty story.  But I really want to know whats going on with Kynan! I think once they get together (if they get together hopefully) it will be amazing.

Orphan's Blade by Aubrie Dionne

*ARC given through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

I though I was going to love this one a lot more than I did. I think I could have liked it a lot more than I did if it hadn't ended so quickly. I felt like the story was just getting good and then all of a sudden Brax is saying "you're free" and then she's making out with Nathaniel on the ground. I was like um.. What the hell just happened?

Besides that I loved the story. I loved Valoria,  She was a fantastic heroine.  She knew how to kick ass and not let a gross prince boss her around, which I totally love. I love how Brax turns out to be a decent guy.

Like I said I loved the story.  I loved the characters. I would have given the book more stars if it hadn't been for the ended.  The ending is kind of a huge part of a book and this one was terrible. I actually went back and re read it because I was honestly like WTF.

Dark Desire by Christine Feehan

Surprisingly i loved this book.  I wasn't a huge fan of the first book.  I thought it was too long and just a little too... I don't know the right word.. just too much I guess.  I don't know.

I kinda love that Jacque is crazy and that Shea is the only one that can calm him.  I love the whole life mate thing.  I hate shifter books where there isn't a life mate. What's the point right.  I love the way Christine Feehan has written the mates in this book.  Where they call to each other over thousands of miles. Love it!

I also have to say that I love that they aren't actually Vampires, they are Carpathians unless they go bad.  Cool twist.  I can't remember when I read the first book Dark Prince, but i want to say it has been at least a year.. ish and I am just not reading the second book because I wasn't feeling the first book but I actually really enjoyed this book. I didn't LOVE it but I got hooked into the world and now I need to know whats going on and I already have the third book and I am starting it tomorrow. So we shall see if the rest of the series can pull me in or if this book just happened to be a fluke. Though I do know I will read until the 4th book becauseI have to know about Gregori.. like I have to. So at least two more books for me to fall head over heels in love with the series.

Six Months by Dannika Dark

I listened to the audio book and that was a HUGE mistake. The voice was terrible.  It make a weak female character sound even weaker. I hate weak characters and April is freakin weak. I hate the whole inner voice thing too. It's amazingly annoying.

Also I hate that she's a human.. she's going to die way before Reno.. Unless I am missing something? I skipped a lot of the book so I might have missed something. but to me I would hate to be 60 and be with a 30 year old. that would just be weird. I don't like that there wasn't a way for her to turn shifter or for him to age regular. and I defiantly don't like the way the book ends by her saying she hopes he finds a woman to to make him happy after she's dead...

yeah this book isn't even a great romance book.

I like this shifter world so I am going to keep reading but this one was not great.

All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

I do not like a bunch of 'feels' in my books.  Which is why I have been putting off this book for awhile.  I liked the first book and I like all of Cora Carmack's books but they tend to be on the emotional side.  But this one wasn't too bad.  Yes there was some momma drama and some early childhood drama but other than that it was just them being funny.  Plus Dylan and Silas are two of my favorite characters I've read in awhile.  I like that Dylan isn't too girly, I always love that about a character. The banter between the two was funny and I love that.  I love a romance that starts out as nothing more than a friendship.. even though it was obvious from the start that it was never about friendship.

One thing that I am glad didn't happen was after they stared their "friendship" or whatever you want to call it, Silas didn't go and screw a bunch of other girls.  That is a random thought I know but I recently read a book where this happened and I hated it.  I almost didn't want to finish the book because I then hated the male MC. So yay Cora for not make Silas into an asshole after he knows he has the hots for out girl Dylan. Thank you for that.

 I will read the next book.. not right away just because I can only because now I need something with a little more edge to it but eventually I will get it.

side note: Dylan high was hilarious.  Best part of the entire book. Could not stop laughing.

Reaper's Property by Joanna Wylde

Okay quick post because I have been slacking on my reading and on my posting. And honestly I don't even have enough of an opinion about this book to write an actual review.

I have heard nothing but amazing things about this book and I honestly do not have anything negative about it.. but honestly I don't have anything positive about it either.  It was entertaining, sure but I will probably hold out on reading the next book though.  There just wasn't anything that different about it.  I usually don't read a lot of motorcycle club books for that very reason.  And for a MC book I didn't think the sex scenes were all that hot.. Some were but others I was was just like ehh.

That's pretty much how I felt about the book in general. EHH.  It was just okay.  I didn't hate it but I defiantly did not love it.  I will eventually read the rest of the series because the books are free but it will be awhile down the road.

Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley

I have honestly been putting this book off because of the summary.. a girl who lets a man sneak into her house in the middle of the night to sleep with her for a year and a half and she doesn't even know his name?? Yeah not usually my kind of MC. But I am glad I finally pushed myself to read it because it was really good!

Gwen was funny! Yes she got very, very, verrrrrrrry annoying at times, but shit who doesn't. I sure as hell would never have let what happened to her, happen to me but it all worked out for her in the end and let me just say that Hawk is dreamy.  He is male perfection; all protective and bossy. Just like I like my male hero.

The only real issue I had was the length of the book.. it seemed to be really long. I found myself skimming parts and thats not good at all! I might have missed important things but honestly I felt like it was all being dragged out.  Gwen was in trouble because of her sister. She kept going back and forth between Tack and Hawk for protection but not really because Hawk just busted in and took her back. Let's get the show on the road all ready!

Overall though the book was worth it! I will defiantly be reading the next book in the Dream Man Series! and probably will try to read more from Kristen Ashley. She is a funny author.  Which is my favorite kind :)

The Goblin King by Heather Killough-Walden

AHH. I love this series so much. Diana and Damon are my favorite King and Queen couple yet.
I will not lie to y'all the romance happens quickly and I know that, that annoys a lot of people.  It can annoy me to at times when after a day people are already in love but the way Heather Killough-Walden does the romance it doesn't seem like it's rushed. Plus if she's your queen there's not much else you can do but fall in love with her you know.  Plus a woman who heals and who can kick ass. helllloooo. I may be just a little bit in love with her.
I was sad when this book ended.. I have loved the other books but I was never sad for the conclusion. Even with Evie and Roman (who up until these two were my favorite) I was okay with that book ending and moving on to the next but I almost don't want to move on because I will miss the Goblin royalty. Plus any character that can heal always fascinates me and I want to know more.  I hope because the next now involves Diana's friend that she will still be a part of it.

Wildest Dreams Kristen Ashley

"Part of the beauty of a woman with child is her curves, wife, and you'll not deprive me of the ones I bestowed on you by 'keeping fit'."   Lets just take a minute and appreciate that line of literary awesomeness there. Ive never had a child but I sent that to my sister and she blew it up and she framed it on her wall so thank you Kristen Ashley for that one :)

I liked this book. There was a whole lot going on. I am SOOOO glad that he knows that she isn't the real princess.  I have read books where they try to hide that and I feel like I'm going to have a panic attack so I love that this book didn't do that and that Frey just found it amusing.  It is a long book but it is worth it. It made me happy

It Ain't Me, Babe by Tille Cole

I was a little nervous to read this one.. as I am with all MC books.  I read one book where the guy forced his girl with 27 guys and it scarred me for life!

I am not going to tell y'all what happened because you can read the summary and know but i will tell you that I am 100% completely in love with this book and with Styx and his crew.  I have never loved a motorcycle book more.
I always have a soft spot for a characters with any kind of speech impediment because I with children in that area and so I instantly fell in love with Styx.  I loved the fact that he could talk to Mae and that she became his calm and it became easier for him to talk to her.

ugh and Rider. UGH that stupid trickster. I freaking felt so sorry for him. I NEVER wanted her to choose him because I was in love with Styx from the first page but still I wanted to bundle him up and just carry him around and pet his head until he was over it. But then he had to go and be all crazy and make me look stupid for trusting the little bastard. I hate it when a character makes me look stupid. So Rider is on my shit list and should run very far away.

I will most defiantly be reading the next book and probably every other book Tillie Cole has written.

Within A Captains Hold

I received an ARC book from Kensington Books for an honest review.

I have never read any kind of pirate book.  I had a little bit of trouble with the dialog at first but after I got use to the way they spoke I loved it.

Anna is running away from an insane man who wants to 'own' her and she ends up as a stow away on The Scarlet Night. Jaxon Steele (the captain) wants nothing to do with her at first and plans on dumping her off at the first port.  But he finds that he isn't able to let her go.  They get married on the ship in order to make it so that she isn no longer "pure" her her stalkers eyes and that will also make Jaxon a wealthy lord.

When they port and they find that their sham marriage is more real then they thought.

It was an easy read.  I enjoyed it and I will read more from Lisa Olech.

Darken the Stars by Amy A. Bartol

ARC received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This one was my far my favorite.  I will be honest though and say that I always loved Kyon and this book she is with Kyon the whole time and I like that.  I love them together and that's what made the book for me. I never liked Trey I hate man who always follows orders. How boring is that?  Plus Kyon actually HELPS her.  He teaches her how to swims and fly and builds the crown that takes down the enemy.  So BOOM Kyon wins.  I will be so very, very heart broken if she ends up with that freaking idiot Trey. and yes I know that I am probably getting a bunch of hate filled curses right now but come on.  Kyon would be a partner. Trey is not a leader.

okay anyways... The book is honestly a lot about the relationship between Kricket at Kyon.  I got a little annoyed with her inner monologue about running away back to Earth.  Actually I got a lot annoyed with that. I would say the book would be perfect if not for that.  She has had three books to come to terms with the fact that she is not human. Get over it.

I would defiantly recommend this book. And I really, really hope that isn't the end to the  series.

Side note: I would also just like to add that I want to hit her father.. very hard right in the face.

Dragon on Top by G.A. Aiken

ARC graciously provided by Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.

This is my first G.A Aiken book and I was very surprised by it.  It was funny and sweet and I love Bram.  I liked Giheanna.  I love a strong warrior female lead.  Especially one with a smart mouth, which she defiantly had.  

I loved seeing the two of them come together.  Just because they are complete opposites.  He is an intellect, a bookworm and she is a captain.  But they fit perfectly together.  I think one of my favorite scenes. I am not sure why.. maybe just because it's hilarious is when Giheanna's younger brothers corner Bram and tell him it's fine for him to go for her and to tell her things like she is beautiful and Bram reply with "she is Beautiful.

I will be reading the rest of this series.  loved it!

Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines

I listened to the Audiobook.

I think that the story had a lot of potential... I do not think that it was all it could have been. My big issue was West. I did not care for him. I know he had a bunch going on but so did Maggie. And I'm sorry Maggie's story is way, way worse and she didn't turn into a d-bag. Yes, West ended up being a sweetie pie and good for him but still.. 

I will say that I loved that Maggie didn't speak. Except to West when he needed it. That was something a little different. I do think it got turned around rather quickly. She just decided she was going to speak again and then she did. but then I guess what else is there.. 

It was short, it was sweet, but really there just wasn't much else to it. I will read the next one because Abbi Glines is one of my all time favorites but this book defiantly is one of my least favorite of her books.

The Heartbeat Thief by A.J. Krafton

Senza Fyne was an 18 year old who was so afraid of death that she gave her life to a complete stranger with magic so that she could live forever.  That is where I had my first issue with the book.  She was willing to give up her life to a man she did not know.  I just had a hard time wrapping my mind around that.

So the Mr Knell tell her she has to steal heartbeats in order to keep going. She goes on and lives for 150 years.  She kills Jack the ripper and kills a boy who she claims she loves with all her soul and then she gives her last heart beat to a dying man with cancer. 

And after that I won't give away the ending put I will say that I was royally pissed off.  Like ROYALLY PISSED! I feel like I wasted 7 hours of my life on a depressing book that could have just been happy if she would have stopped bitching about something that is inevitable.

Can't Resist Him by Molly McLain

“I’m not going to pretend I’ve always been the kind of guy who knows what needs to be said, because I’m not. Hell, I’m not any different than the assholes who’ve used and abused you before. I’ve done a lot of stupid shit and fucked with the heads of a lot of perfectly nice girls. But you’re different for me, and that makes me want to be different for you, too.”

Ohhhhh Brody. I am madly in love with you.  As I am sure half the female population will be after reading this book.

Brody is dealing with PTSD after the death of two of his friends over seas and he is on mandatory leave. Which he is not happy about. Jenny is, well she is just kind of lost.  She has been in love with her on again off again "fuck buddy" for ten years and he has decided to leave her behind.  So now she needs to move on.  

Two lost souls find each other and help each other mend. It's beautiful, it's funny, and it sure as hell sexy! 

Cage of Deceit by Jennifer Anne Davis

Jennifer Anne Davis has made me a very happy reader yet again! I read her True Reign series in two days. I could not stop. And last night I started Cage of Deceit and I could not put it down for anything! I wanted to cry because now I have to wait for the next one.

You have a princess who sneaks out in the middle of the night who jumps buildings to brings in common thieves and wield a sword like her father can.  She clearly cares for her kingdom and when it is threatened will do something she really doesn't want to do... like marry a very handsome prince.

Prince Odar is handsome but he seems to let his squire do most of his princely duties.  Allyssa doesn't want a pretty face she wants an equal. Someone like Jarvik  (the squire)

There's drama, fighting, sneaking around dressed up like a man, an assassin; honestly what's not to love about this book :)

Blood Dark by Lindsay J. Pryor

I got an early e-copy of this book for an honest review.

I actually loved this book.. I haven’t liked the last couple installments of this series but this one was very good.  It also helps that it was told from Caitlin and Kane’s POV’s and I loved the start of their story in Blood Shadows.

Since the books is not out yet Im not going to give anything away but..

It starts with Caitlin back working for TSCD working on a case of murders are happening in Blackthorn. Kane has to decide if he wants Caitlin or to help change Blackthorn more.  There is also a lot of trust issues with the two of them. It makes me want to hit them.. but I mean I get it.. she works for the company that is trying to kill him. 

The ending!! guys it is soooooo good! like so so good.  I already NEED the next one!

Relentless Karen Lynch

I am going through and re reading a bunch of books and since the 3rd installment is coming out soon I am going to reread the first two. After reading Relentless I realized that I didn't write a review. So here I am.

Whats not to love about this book. Vampires, half demons, werewolves, and trolls. And a baddass guy on a motorcycle. I had issues at first about Sara... she annoyed me for awhile. Sure there are a million different guys coming after me but I am going to be stubborn and stay right here to bring the chaos to the people I love. That always bothers me about books. But even with that... I love the book.  

I like the protectiveness of Nikolas. And how determined the werewolves... well Roland and Peter... are to keep her with them and safe. It's adorable.

This book is a good set up for the next one. I love the characters and the story. It is different then just finding out that you are half demon. No you have a demon living inside you. 


As soon as I read the blurb for this book I had to read it.  It was such an interesting concept for a romance book.  Two people who think the other is ugly fall in love! I was trying to figure out how it was going to be done well but it was.  I enjoyed this book a lot.
It starts off with a “spare” prince of a different race and a human niece of a royal family getting married.  The are hilariously blunt with each other and about how they feel.  That leads to a friendship and then love.  Of course there are challenges like a crazy mother in law trying to kill Ildiko and then Brishen being kidnapped but they stick together make it out okay(with a few new scars and one less eyeball).
I love how the love between them blossomed.  It was such a unique story and I can’t wait for the second book to come out!


Okay Im going to be honest and say that I didn’t like this book until I was 25ish% into it. I almost stopped reading it but I am glad that I didn’t.
Once Seth and Lydia admit that they care for each other (in their own heads) I was okay with it. I think the turning point for me was when she was teaching him about surfing the internet. I love that humor. Seth was a funny guy… even though he wasn’t trying to be.
I know the characters are all the tormented hero but I just wasn’t feeling Seth until he was looking at the sunsets on the computer and then after that I just started falling more and more in love with them.
So for readers like me who have a hard time sticking to a book when one stupid thing pisses them off (I know its horrible. I am working on it) Stick with this one! I love all the dream hunter books so far and this one is no exception!


I love this book! I may die waiting for the next book come out. Seriously I may die.
I read the summary and I put the book on hold at the library thinking ehh okay it sounds alright. It was not at all what I was expecting at all. It was hilarious! I laughed so many times and the people I expected to hate I loved and vise versa. Like Khalid well didn’t he turn out to be a yummy tortured man. But I am pretty sure Shazi’s Handmaiden… I have no clue how to spell her name.( i listened to the audiobook at work) okay she was so freaking funny. Great character.
And that ending?? WHAT THE HELL? I may have to kill a bitch. You know if that were possible.. :)


Sigh. I loved this book. I am not going to write a full review because there was so much going on and I hate reviews that give things away so I am just going to say that it was good! I haven’t like the last couple of Dagger books. but I have always loved Rehv in the other books. And I was so glad he got a happy ending. Also I LOVED hearing more about Wrath and Beth. So that was pretty cool. The only thing I didn’t really care for was John’s POV.. I don’t like him.. I know that terrible and I know that so many people like him but I just don’t. And it sucks because he’s the main guy in the next book so i know it will take me forever to pick it up


The first part of this book was loooong. It was good but just too damn long. It also made me hate Ash. I know crazy right but I honestly think Styxx had it so much worse than Ash ever did. Life sucked butt for both of them obviously but it was so freaking sad that they basically went through the same things yet hated and tried to kill each other. When they could have helped each other out if they would have sat and had a 5 minute conversation. and Marissa! UGH!!! she is the absolute worst! Seriously I loathe her.
The second part of the book where Styxx and Ash started getting along I LOVED! I was so freaking happy for them. And you get to know a little bit about Ash and Tori’s baby. oh and the little Urian twist! AH! so good.
I will also say that Artemis was hilarious. “Payback’s a cat” I have been repeating that all day to my co workers(They all think I’m crazy) but I still laugh. I love when she messes up her sayings.
If you are are this far in the DH series then I probably don’t have to talk you into this one. I have been dying to know about Styxx since Night Embrace and I have needed to hear his side after I read Acheron. It is long and it is sad. like I said the two brother went through a lot of the same things so it makes you want to murder a bunch of people (a certain perverted uncle for one!) It is dark and it made me a tear up a couple of times but I feel so much better knowing his story and knowing that the two brothers are happy and together again!
