Review: A Night to Surrender

A Night to Surrender A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I have been reading The Maiden Lane series. It was the first historical romance series that I have ever liked. I thought I would branch out and try another series and see if I enjoyed it.... and I didn't.

Susanna Finch is a bitch. Straight up. I have no idea how else to say it. Well I probably could but aint nobody got time for that. She is in charge of a house full of women who for one reason or another have been shunned, are sick in some way or have a deformity (and by this I mean they can't see with out spectacles or some other rubbish like that). The idea of the house is good. The medical practices back then were insane. So I like that Susanna came up with ways to help these women medically without harming them. But what I don't like is that she acts like she can dictate every move the women make. If they want to dance with a rake or farmer, why the hell can't they? Again I know society was crazy then but at the same time they are in the freakin country where no one of "worth" will see. They absolutely should not go sleeping around with people.. but a dance??! Especially since miss spinster herself looses her v card to a man she knows won't be there long on the freaking ground outside of a pub!!!!! Can we please say hypocrite and thats even slutty for 2016!

The other thing I though was odd was that Susanna wanted women to be their own person.. Thats good. But then they had a very strict schedule. That included tea, walks, picnics, and shooting? Idk it just seemed to be a contradiction.

Victor Bramwell the male of the story didn't do anything for me one way or another. He was just there. Literally I have nothing to say about him.

My whole problem with the book really rest on Susanna's shoulders. She was a terrible character. She wouldn't marry Victor yet she wanted him not go back to war( which is his entire life. The thing he has done forever and the only thing he has ever wanted to do). I just think it was crazy for her to expect him to drop his whole life just because she was in love with him.

I probably will never read anymore from this series. Although I am a little interested in Colins story. I am not interested enough to read through another book like this.

Review: The Curse of Tenth Grave

The Curse of Tenth Grave The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So I was a tad disappointed by this book. It wasn't a bad book at all and was completely entertaining but I just felt underwhelmed. I always seem to have this problem with book series that don't have a set end. There were some important things that happened so I can't say that it's a filler but thats what this book felt like to me.

Charlie has her memories back and she learned a bunch of stuff about Reyes when her father passed through her. Big stuff, stuff that she doesn't want to talk to Reyes about. So the first bit of the book is Reyes and Charlie keeping secrets from each other. That annoyed me right off the bat. I love them together. They have too many ups and downs and in the end if they had just been honest with each other, it all would have worked out. They just need to get their shit together.

Like every other Charlie book, there is alot going on. Theres a couple murders, a cursed orphanage, Reyes may have another child, a crazy god running amuck, secrets, Osh almost dies.. twice, there's a young picture of Rocket, they get to see Beep, Garrett is following UB, and Reyes and Charlie make up and have a very good night full of sexy time. So yeah.. there is ALOT. So like I said, the book is by no means boring. I just felt like there was too much side jobs and not enough of the main plot line.

I will always love Charlie. I don't think it's possible to read one of these books with out laughing. I warn my coworkers when I'm going to listen to a Charlie book because I can't help but laugh out loud. SO I loved it. I am so freaking excited that the next book is coming out in January!!! WOOT. seriously I would have been super sad if I would have had to wait another year for the next one. So thank you Darynda Jones for that!

Review: Waterfall

Waterfall Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

re-read 6/28/2016

Spoilers*-kind of

I don't know why I go back and re-read YA books. I absolutely loved this book the first time I read it and I still loved it but I kind of wanted to kick punt Gabi. She travels back in time and thinks she can take on born and bred soldiers just because her dad taught her how to swing a sword. That's just ignorant. She also thinks she always knows the way.. even though she takes off because the men weren't going fast enough and takes everyone right into enemy territory.

Besides all of that, I would still go on with the series. Even if this was the first time I read the story. I LOVE the storyline. Girl goes back in time. Girl fumbles to grasp the time. Girl falls for boy. Girl seeks sister who time traveled with her. Girl can "fight" (not really. Basically she can hold a sword and all the people in the 1300s think she's the shit because of it.). Girl finds out sister is in enemy castle. Girl helps plan an escape that just so happens to help the good guys capture the enemies castle. Girl becomes a legend but then girl gets hurt and ends up having to go back home. Despite the fact that boy has purposed and she finally has her sister back.

Thats just a freaking good book! Gabi(girl) is a little annoying because she thinks she knows everything even though she's 700 years in the past. But that's okay. I will still probably re-read this book later on in the future. It's fun!

Review: Duke of Midnight

Duke of Midnight Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I didn't like this one as much as I have liked the previous books. And that all comes down to one thing: Maximus sleeps with Artemis knowing that he won't marry her and that he won't let anyone else have her. I know that Artemis went into his bedroom. I know that she wanted to sleep with him. I get that but she was a virgin and emotional. Plus this is set in the 1700s,..I think.. so it's just them mans fault. Maximus sleeps with her over and over again and he decides he's going to make her his mistress... like he's going to buy her a house in the country to keep her at so he can go fuck her whenever he wants.. He doesn't decide that he actually wants to marry her until the very freaking end of the book. I hated that. I mean we all know that the guy and girl are going to end up together at the end but I hate it when it happens in the very last chapter.

I really liked Artemis at first but then she slowly slipped downhill for me. She slept with someone knowing he wouldn't marry her, knowing that her cousin wanted to marry him, knowing that it would totally ruin her reputation, knowing that she would be cast out of society and shame her family (even if her family was already shamed.)

So yeah I was just annoyed with the whole relationship. It was hard for me to get into. I liked how the book started out. I really liked their connection. I was super excited about them actually but then they just ruined it for me by sleeping together....and that's not something I thought Id ever say about a book!

Review: Tall, Dark & Hungry

Tall, Dark & Hungry Tall, Dark & Hungry by Lynsay Sands
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I want to like this series. There are so many books and almost all of them have fantastic reviews but I hate every one I read. This one is no different. It's awkward to read. I understand that some of the situations are suppose to be funny but to me it's all just awkward. Omg and this book was all about planning the previous couples wedding and they weren't even there. OH and randomly Kate's (the chick from the last book) coworker ends up staying with Bastian? WTF. It's just such a random, awkward thing. I don't understand. I just didn't understand any of what happened in this book. Why certain things happen and my god I know some people have bad luck but enough is enough. All those bad things happening just wasn't realistic, it was annoying.

I think I said last time that I was done with this series but I want to like it soo much that I always pick up another one.. so I won't say it this time because I'm sure ill eventually pick up the next one.. but know right now that I do not want to.

Review: Lord of Darkness

Lord of Darkness Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was extremely surprised by how much I loved this book. I have been putting this off for days because it just didn't sound good to me.

I am a jealous creature. So when I see a book that the characters were madly in love with a wife or lover that died, I am instantly turned off by it. I don't want to read about someone trying to "compete" with an ex lover. This book started off that way... except they weren't competing in this one because they both had an ex love that they didn't want to get over, ever. But Megs wants a baby so she has to try and seduce her husband into bedding her. Besides that there is the fact that Godric is another Ghost and he's out saving children and trying to find Megs' ex lover's murderer.. Yeah.. Godric was actually kind of amazing. I think I fell in love with him a little bit.

This is one of those times where you can't always rate a book by its synopsis. At least in my case because it has something that I am not totally crazy for but it still ended up being an amazing book and I'm mad at myself for not reading it sooner.

Review: Hot Blooded

Hot Blooded Hot Blooded by Donna Grant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was prepared to not like this book. I really was but I was surprised by how much I actually loved it. Laith is one of my favorite dragons now! Iona I didn't like at first but she grew on me.

Iona is a photographer who travels all over the world taking pictures in dangerous situations. Her father was the man who owned/protected the land next to the Dragon Kings. He dies and she come stop Scotland to bury him and sell his things. She has zero intentions of staying long. Then she meets Laith. They have an instant connection. Not just a lusty attraction but a connection on a deeper level. They want to know everything right off the bat. Neither of them wanted to fall in love but things happen.

This book is full of action, secrets and two people slowly falling in love. OH and the warriors play a big role in this book!! I miss them and LOVE when they get involved.

Review: Thief of Shadows

Thief of Shadows Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


So from the very first book when Winter had the knife cut on his back, I had a feeling that he was the ghost.. but then at the end of the book Winter was at the house while it was burning but the Ghost was there too... So then I thought well maybe I'm wrong.. or maybe there are 2 ghosts.. I'm smart like that or it was totally obvious. Either way, Winter was freaking cool.

I enjoyed this book so much! I didn't think I would.. not because I didn't like Winter, I do, but because he ends up with an older woman.. I know that doesn't matter but this is what I thought before I read the book. I really thought there was going to be a strong emphasis on the age difference and that would be super annoying, but there wasn't! Really it was just mentioned in passing a few times.

What I love the most about this book is that Winter is one of the ghosts. Winter He is this boring, unemotional, school teacher and he goes out to save the streets at night. That's just awesome! I was not a fan of Isabel though. I thought she was entirely too pushy for a woman in that time. Winter told her repeatedly that he was never going to engage in sexual acts and she pushed it on him. She was waaaay too nosey too. She was mad that Winter didn't tell her that he was the ghost.. Uh his own family doesn't know, why would he tell a woman who was "forced" to spend time with him and educate him on manners. I mean really. Like I said she was just freaking pushy. I did not like her.

But get past her and the story and Winter are fantastic. 4 stars solely because I really did not like Isabel. Everything else in the book was amazing.

I won't lie and say that I'm excited for the next book.. I have not liked Margaret Reading in the last couple of books. I am still going to listen to the book though. Hopefully it's not going to be exactly what I think it's going to be.

Review: Unexpected Eden

Unexpected Eden Unexpected Eden by Rhenna Morgan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got the 3rd book of this series on Netgalley.. I didn't realize it was the third before I requested it so now I'm reading the first 2 in the series first.

This one was pretty good. There is honestly a lot of things happening. Like soooooooo much. The Myren have way too many powers. Seriously some of their base powers are flying, telekinesis, and telepathy.. Seriously and these are powers that all of them get and then on top of those itty bitty powers they also get "major" powers. Like: healing, controlling the elements, being able to read emotions or and being able to shred minds.. you know no big deal... dude I'm sorry but thats too freaking much for these people to be able to do. I won't lie, I got kind of annoyed at that. It's not fun to read about a race that is literally all powerful.

I also felt like the book was hella long. I honestly don't know how long it actually was but I got a little bored in the beginning and then again towards the end.

Despite me bitching for the last forever I really did enjoy the book. The first book in a series like this is bound to be a little boring because the author has to get all the explaining out of the way. I get that, doesn't mean I'm not going to complain about it though :)

I really liked all of the characters. Lexi was a strong female and she was really well written for a queenly role. Eryx was a baddass with a soft spot for Lexi = which means he's the perfect guy. I really like Eryx somo (I'm guessing thats like his personally bodyguard.. they never really said) Ludan. He was funny in a serious sort of way. I was hoping to get his book next but nope we get Eryx sister.. who I also guess I liked.. a little. We shall see!

Review: Notorious Pleasures

Notorious Pleasures Notorious Pleasures by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I didn't like this one nearly as much as I loved the first book.. I think it could have been good.. but the thing that makes me kind of hate it is the cheating. I know things were different back then and that she was only marrying Thomas for her brother and political reasons but she was still engaged to the guy when she was hooking up with Griffin... If she would have called off the engagement after the first kiss, I probably would have loved the book. But she didn't.

This is one of the reasons I always have hard time reading historical romances. I can't put myself into the character. Hero is a Duke's daughter and a Duke's sister so she feels like she has to do everything the proper way.. Which I guess back then she would have and I just can't wrap my mind around that. I would have told my brother to shove it and that I was marrying Griffin because he does more for me and at least I have some kinds of feelings for him.

I still loved the writing and I still loved the story line. Gin rivals! That's just awesome. I also loved the side characters. I can't wait for some of their stories and I am excited for the next book! Silence and Mickey are going to be an interesting couple!

Review: Wicked Intentions

Wicked Intentions Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So I am not a huge fan of historical romances. Al that properness just doesn't do it for me. But this book I actually liked quite a lot. Honestly the only problem I had was the length.. I know people say that if you love a book it can never be too long but I disagree with that completely. When things start to drag out, my mind tends to wonder and I loose focus on what I'm listening to and that happened just a few times in this book.

Temperance ( I hate that name btw) is the heroine of the story. She, along with her brother Winter, runs the Foundling Home for young abandon children. She's a widow of 9 years and the house is her entire life. She is in some financial trouble though.

Lazarus Huntington or Lord Caire is a wealthy aristocrat who is looking for his mistress' murderer. He is in a part of town that he doesn't know that well so he makes a deal with Temperance. He wants her to show him to people who might be able to help him and he will take her to social events so she can try to get another patron to help fund the home.

They spend some time together and there is an animal attraction between the two. Temperance tries to fight it because it isn't "proper" but gives in eventually and they fall in love. Yay.

This book was sexy, sweet, had lots of action and lots of love. I am defiantly reading more in this series!!

Review: The Billionaire's Touch

The Billionaire's Touch The Billionaire's Touch by J.S. Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got this book in a GoodReads Giveaway.

I absolutely loved this book! I feel like the last book got a little too emotional for my taste but this one had just enough feels to balance out the rest. I freaking loved Randi. She was bold and didn't take any of Evan's shit. She was grieving the loss of her foster mother but was still able to hold her own. Evan I also loved. I liked seeing him loose his control. At first I was a little unconvinced that he could change as much as he did.. because if you've read the first couple books he is 100% different from that man. But then I realized that it's really just around Randi that he's different so I got over it. He was still the asshole guy, it was just dumped down a little bit. I also really liked learning about Evan in general. He was a really fantastic character. By far my favorite from the series.

I can not freaking wait until the next book!!! I am beyond excited about it. I think Micah and Tessa's story are going to be fantastic!

Review: No Ordinary Billionaire

No Ordinary Billionaire No Ordinary Billionaire by J.S. Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got the 3rd book of this series in a GoodReads giveaway, so I decided to read the whole series and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually enjoyed this story. I am not a overly huge fan of the whole mega rich guy heros. Usually they are complete assholes but Dante was a sweetheart. He was possessive and demanding but it wasn't over the top. I think it had a lot to do with Sarah too though. He didn't have to be an asshole because she agreed with everything he said. Don't get me wrong. I did like Sarah. She had a quiet strength and to be honest everything that Dante wanted her to do wasn't all that bad. I mean she had a killer after her and *gasp* a heroine actually listened when the big strong detective asked her to do something for her protection.

Bottom line: I enjoyed the book. I won't say it's one of my absolute favorites but I defiantly didn't hate reading it and would recommend it to pretty much anyone.

Review: Barbarian's Touch

Barbarian's Touch Barbarian's Touch by Ruby Dixon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I went back and forth on if I liked this book or not. I LOVE the premise of it. I like the the female character, Lilah, was deaf. That sounds horrible to say but it added something totally different to the story and it made you see exactly how sweet Rokan was compared to Hassen. Rokan didn't want to make her feel out of place so he didn't use words.. he founds other ways to communicate with her and he wanted her to teach him ASL.

I LOVED Rokan. Seriously. He was the sweetest alien of all of them so far. He was perfect in every way. I was not a huge fan of Lilah... She acted like she loved Rokan, told him she loved him but when he told her about the mate thing she was a total bitch. Um if you love someone who cares if the cootie helped you figure that out sooner. If I was Rokan I would have been completely devastated by her reaction. Which I guess he was but I'm just saying you don't treat someone you love that way. She was this meek scared kitten for 80% of the book and then she turned into a bitch and then one day she's all sweet again.. Just annoyed me. I think she bothered me so much because I honestly loved Rokan. I don't think anyone would have been good enough for him.

Love me some Ice Barbaians :)

Review: Claimed by a Demon King

Claimed by a Demon King Claimed by a Demon King by Felicity Heaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I went into this book with a negative attitude ( I know bad Megan!) But I was not a huge fan of Sable in the last book but I am girl crushing on her for reals now. Also Thorn was freaking adorable. I love it when the hero doesn't know certain things.. like him trying to make human food for Sable when she was hung over. He had my heart right then and he will have it forever. Also how sweet he was. He jumped to the mortal world to get her coffee! OHHHH and when some skanky human throws herself at him he completely shuts it down. Whoo!!! Yay Thorn!

The whole book was action, adorable demon Thorn and Sable just being a badass. I loved this book!!

Review: To Covet The Fae

To Covet The Fae To Covet The Fae by L.E. Wilson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read Wilson's Deathless Night series and absolutely loved it. The Kincaid wolves were some of my favorite characters from that series. They were hilarious and come on the accent! Whoa! Does it for me every time. So when I saw that there was going to be a series for the wolf pack, I freaked out and I was not at all disappointed by the first book.

We actually meet Brock and Heather in the last book Blood Obsession from the Deathless Night series. Brock saves Heather and her friend Grace's lives and then follows them to Seattle and that's kind of where the book starts. Brock has an insta lust thing going on for Heather and same for her. Except she is trying to run away and Brock is chasing her. So as Heather is trying to get away one of "her people" catch her and take her to their prince and Brock follows. That's where the fun begins. I won't give away a bunch of details because I hate spoilers but the two are thrown into another world and what happens in the world is up to a flip of a coin!

Seriously so much fun to read and it just has a different twist than any other shifter book. I can honestly say I've never read a book where either good or bad things happen based on a coin. Just goes to show that those faeries really are loons. ;)

I CANNOT wait for the next book! The author generously gave me a copy of this book :)

Review: The Raven King

The Raven King The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have been waiting for this book for more than a month.. And it was so freaking good.. except the ending. But everything else that happens makes up for it, kinda.

There is some pretty fantastic things (even if some of them are 100% random.. unless I suck at seeing things) like Adam and Ronan.. who the hell saw that coming? Not this girl thats for freaking sure. Blew my mind. But it makes me happy anyways. Then of course Blue and Gansey finally have a single kiss... yes people thats all we get.. the one kiss. But that's alright.

So much happens in this book. Like soooooo much that there is no way I'm going to get into it. If you've read this far in the series you have an idea whats going and you know when I say that it's all a little crazy, I mean it. It's so much that I have a hard time putting it out in words. But I loved every second of it.

I felt like it ending quickly and it was very vague. That was the real disappointment. I liked everything else except I wanted more of an ending. Not just saying that Blue and Gansey are going to travel and Adam is going to college and Ronan is staying at the barn. Idk what I was expecting exactly I just know that what I got was a let down.

I am a huge romance reader... It's usually all I read and I was just hoping for at least a conformation that Blue and Gansey stayed together and especially what happened with Adam and Ronan. I need some closure on the relationships! Even the friendships seemed to be going separate ways... Which I get that happens after high school... but they went through too much together to just idk not say goodbye. It just ended too quickly.

Review: Moon Dance

Moon Dance Moon Dance by J.R. Rain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book wasn't that bad.. I was looking through kindle Unlimited books that you can listen to and saw this and thought What the hell? I mean I didn't love it.. But I didn't hate listening to it.

Sam was attacked and turned into a vampire against her will. She did work for the FBI but now can't go out at night so she has her own PI business. She has two children and a husband. she doesn't want to loose that life. So when her husband starts cheating on her she lets it go... uh NO. This pissed me off and then when she started dreaming about someone else she freaked out on herself. Lady your hubby is sleeping with someone else and isn't even trying to hide it.. I'm pretty sure its cool if you dream about another guy.

Other than that little irritant that book was good. It was about an actual case and not a whole lot of drama.

I went on and started the next book.. and stopped at about 10%... One of my biggest pet peeves in a book series is when there are obvious inconsistencies. In this book Sam is 37 and at the very end of the book her husbands girlfriend dumps him.. In the start of the second book, his GF is taking the kids for ice cream and Sam is 34... Like those are some pretty big freaking things to just change on a whim. I don't know if ill get around to reading the rest of the series. Maybe when I'm not pissed anymore.

Review: Shut Out

Shut Out Shut Out by Kelly Jamieson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. I wasn't all terrible.. it was just terrible until about half way through. I almost put the book down multiple times.

I really don't want to give things away, so it's hard for me to review this book. That is one thing that I don't think I'll ever be great at. So this will be short and sweet. The thing that bothered me the most was that we didn't find out a lot until the very end. The author lets us know that their are secrets and more going on in certain situations but I just felt like it was being held over my head. It annoyed me. Besides that I wasn't a fan of some of the dialogue.. it seemed forced and awkward.

But besides all that I still enjoyed the book. I am glad I didn't out it down. I loved seeing Jacob grow to love Skylar. He was sweet.. well after he stopped pushing her away he was.

I will defiantly read the next book even if this one wasn't 100% for me.

Review: Elias

Elias Elias by Sabrina Paige
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kindle Unlimited books are always a hit or miss with me. I have read a book by Sabrina Paige before andI enjoyed it and I enjoyed this one as well.

River is a movie star running away from a cheating fiancé and a mom who takes all her money. She runs to Vegas and thats where she meets Elias. Elias is "celebrating" his Navy retirement in Vegas. He was injured my a bomb explosion and lost his leg. He also does not want to retire. He sees River and he has no clue who she is and she loves that. They share a hot kiss and then they go their separate ways. Until the morning when he saves her from a swarm of paparazzi. River has no where to go. She invites herself to go to West Bend with Elias and thats where their relationship grows.

The book was seriously sweet and extremely steamy. Elias is one of my new favorite book boyfriends. He acts like a tough military man but then he goes and does super sweet things for River.. the whole picnic in the mountains! Just amazing. And to be honest I thought River would drive me nuts but I kind of loved her too. She did NOT act like a "star". She was very down to Earth and she was generally a funny girl.

I am most defiantly going to read on in the series. I am mad at myself for not picking this one up sooner!

Review: Tackled: A Football Romance

Tackled: A Football Romance Tackled: A Football Romance by Lucy Snow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand I liked the storyline, on the other.. I hated the characters.

The premise of the story is a college football player starting out in the NFL. Drake Rollins is a fantastic football player. The problem is what he does off the field. He drinks, sleeps around and gets caught a lot, Not exactly what a professional team wants in a player. Lily is a new reporter who gets to follow Drake around for his first year and report on how he's handling the NFL. They know each other from college and they have a connection and fall in love.

Okay that sounds like a freaking good story right? Bad boy player turns his life around? Sweet! Only I hated Drake. Like so, so much. He was a selfish prick. Even after he's "turned his life around". I feel bad for Lily. I would never want to be stuck with him. Hot guy or not if you're selfish, I don't want you. Lily isn't really that fantastic either. She acts like a child for the entire book.

I wanted to love it because I loved the storyline. But I didn't. It was still enjoyable and I will still read on in the series but this one just wasn't 100% awesome for me.

Review: For 100 Days

For 100 Days For 100 Days by Lara Adrian
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a lover of Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series. I have read that series multiple times. I love everything about it. So when I saw that she was writing a non-paranormal romance it made me little nervous. Not saying authors can't write in multiple genres because the most defiantly can. But when I love something so much it's hard to see it change.

But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I did enjoy this book. Nick has such a powerful presence that he sucks you in. Avery is a starving artist, which usually isn't my favorite but it worked for her. The raw sexual connection with the two characters was so strong. It was one of the sexiest books I've read, at least in a long while. I can't wait for the next book!

Review: Demon Possession

Demon Possession Demon Possession by Kiersten Fay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars. I had a hard time rating this book. I wanted to give it 5 stars but that would have been just a little bit of a lie. It was so freaking long. The first half was kind of slow and it was really just about a girl learning about how to move on from a horrible life And then theres a little bit of her and her demon falling in love and then in the last 25% of the book we find out who she is. I just think that the there is soo much information pushed into the last quarter. I wish it was sprinkled in throughout instead of all at the end.

I loved the book though. I did love seeing Analia grow into her own person and I absolutely loved all of the characters and I am excited to see where the series goes!

Review: Night Sins

Night Sins Night Sins by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Kensington Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is another short sexy book by Lisa Renee Jones. I just finished Amber Fire and this one is kind of on the same lines as that one except with a vampire. Kayla is a watcher and is in charge of protecting the people of Vegas. That would be hard enough without adding in paranormals. Ethan is a vampire who owns some hotels and clubs in Vegas. He is also having a problem where his female employees are being murdered. Kayla figures it's an inside job. So she tries to figure out who it is and Ethan wants her to stay out of it because he knows the women who have been targeted personally. Sounds fun right. Sleep with the boss and die.

Besides all the actions there is the connection with Ethan and Kayla. They are on fire for each other.. literally.. they both get super hot around each other. Ethan is a dirty talker and I like that. Seriously the book is smoking hot.

It's really good for a short story. There is a lot packed into. I defiantly would recommend it to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances. Lisa Renee Jones is quickly becoming one of my favorites with her paranormal books!

Review: Inescapable

Inescapable Inescapable by Amy A. Bartol
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sometimes re-reading a book is a bad idea. Two years ago I loved this book... this time around I hated it. So now I'm in a pickle... do I re-rate the book on how I currently see it or do I leave it? Maybe I'll put it somewhere in the middle.

My whole purpose for re reading this book is because I never got around to reading the past the 3rd book. MY library just got these babies in audio on overdrive soo I got super excited. Yay I love audiobooks and since its been 2 years since I read the first 3 I just started over. I freaking rated the book 5 stars so I had to have loved it... sigh. ok. So since I didn't have a review the first time around and I feel bad lowering the stars I'm not going to rant about what I hated. Im going to lists the pros and cons.

What I liked
-Russell. He gets totally screwed in this book and if I remember the rest of the books but he is perfection.
-I love the actual storyline. The whole angels at war thing and Evie not knowing she was an angel. I don't read a lot of angel books because they tend to get preachy but this one did not. There's fallen angels and then there are regular angels. They have different types of angels and I find it all completely fascinating.
-Reid grows on you.. I still think Russell is better but Reid isn't terrible.
-The side characters. Buns and Brownie. Those girls are hilarious.

What I hated
-EVIE. Thats it. I hated her. I hate hating the main character when I love everything else about a book. I know that there was a supernatural pull for her and Reid but really. She's in college. you do not act like your whole world ends because your boyfriend broke up with you after 2 days. I have no flipping clue how that didn't bother me the first time around. It was completely ridiculous. She begged him to stay with her... begged . Thats weak, come on girl.

I am still going to go on with the series. I really want to finish it and see what all happens... and maybe Evie will grow a pair? Or maybe because her and Reids relationship is supposedly solid now, she won't act like a 12 year old girl. We shall see.

I originally gave this book 5 stars.. if I were to rate it now I would give it 2.. so I changed the rating to a 3.. because everything is told in Evie's POV and damn the girl is annoying!

Review: Amber Fire

Amber Fire Amber Fire by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by Kensington Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I haven't read anything by Lisa Renee Jones in awhile and I haven't read any of her paranormal stories so I was excited to read this one and it did not disappoint.

I didn't realize it was a shorter story until I started it. Everything moves really quickly. Amber falls in lust for Jareth, Jareth is attracted to Amber but also thinks that she's a hunter. So their first sexual encounter he is kind of a jerk to try and get her to tell the truth and I guess what she's says convinces him that she is a hunter.. I don't know why he had to ask her the way that he did but oh well.

This story was sexy and exciting. The couple seem to have great chemistry. It does seem rushed but they have known each other for a month and talked a lot to get to know each other then.. So I'm good with the rushed thing. Anyways, I enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone who loves paranormal romances!

Review: Royal Enchantment

Royal Enchantment Royal Enchantment by Lia Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.

I enjoyed reading this book. It's a story about a battle with dark and light elves. Yay I love books about elves. Ava (our heroine) stumbles into a whole new realm and discovers she is an elf and not only that but that she is fated to be mated to the king and help restore peace and magick to the realm. Ava and Finn(our Hero) have an insta attraction and Finn knows right away who and what Ava is. Ava takes a little bit of convincing but they soon find out what they can do together and how much love could be between them.

I loved the journey. I love all things paranormal and I especially love elves. The realm in which this book is set up in is magically beautiful. Ava can do and experience to much more in this world and it was fun to see her learn her new home.

Solid 4.5 stars. I will defiantly be reading the next one and many more from Lia Davis.
