New Release Review & #Giveaway ~ Disarm ~ Karina Halle

New Release Review & #Giveaway ~ Disarm ~ Karina Halle

Disarm is the second in KHalle’s Dumont series revolving around a famous French family. With family disloyalty and dysfunction, greed, money, power, and a forbidden romance, Disarm was a guilty pleasure of a read. 😉 Highlights: Characters Seraphine and Blaise were the black sheep of their families. They’re also cousins who saw something in each other early on that drew them to one another. Dealing with jealousy and treachery within in the family has taken its toll. KHalle crafted characters I invested in and connected with in Seraphine and Blaise. Her villains were delightfully evil in their desire for money and power and in their villainous actions. Romance Although Seraphine and Blaise’s romance could be considered taboo, they weren’t actually […]

Audio Review ~ Darkhouse ~ Karina Halle

Audio Review ~ Darkhouse ~ Karina Halle

Darkhouse has been hanging around gathering dust for awhile. When my younger daughter gave it a listen, loved it, and promptly blew through the first 3 books in the Experiment in Terror series, I decided it was time I give it a listen! Highlights: Characters Perry seems like your typical 20-something, working at a job she doesn’t enjoy while trying to figure out where her life goes from here. She’s had an interesting life thus far – KHalle doles out facts throughout such as drug-use, mental health issues, weight issues – all of which have impacted who Perry is right now. Oh, and the most interesting trait of Perry’s? She can see and talk to ghosts. Dex…well, he’s an enigma. […]

Review: Bad At Love – Karina Halle

Review: Bad At Love – Karina Halle

Welcome to my buddy-read review for Bad At Love that I read with my bloggerwife, Brandee @ BookwormBrandee 🙂 Hi wifey! I’m so happy we buddy read Bad at Love – you know, Karina Halle seems to be our go-to author for these. 😉 Okay, let’s chat! 1) What did you think of Laz’s serial monogamy? I found it very interesting that he dated for periods of time but always had a girl to move to immediately – and that it was easy because he never got close to a girl or let them get close to him. It said a lot about his feelings on relationships even though he felt he was doing a good thing. I thought that […]

Review: The Play – Karina Halle

Review: The Play – Karina Halle

The Play was way hot, and I fell head over heels for the damaged Lachlan and for Kayla as well. My feels were in overdrive during The Play, I’m not kidding. Lachlan has so many demons he literally lives in his own private hell; even if he’s able to keep said demons at bay most of the time. It’s funny to me that I didn’t really like Kayla much before I started reading this, but here, I got to understand her better, and now I love her. Between the sexy, Scottish rugby player who started out very stand-offish, and the man-eater who has sworn off men, the sparks flew. Even if Kayla and Lachlan both did their best to resist. […]

Audioreview: The Pact – Karina Halle

Audioreview: The Pact – Karina Halle

The Pact is the first in Halle’s McGregor series – which works completely as stand-alone novels! – but my second. And oh my, how I loved Linden and Stephanie! I buddy-listened to The Pact with my dear blogger-wife Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee. So I’m sharing some stuff we chatted about after we were both finished. There might be some slight spoilers, so beware! Me: Both Kayla and James really, really piss me off!!! I’m almost at the end of The Pact… Brandee: Me too! I almost couldn’t stand James.









 How can Steph be happy for James?? I would kick him in the nuts if I were her! I completely agree. He was a total schmuck. So self-centered. I’d kick him […]

Audioreview: The Offer – Karina Halle

Audioreview: The Offer – Karina Halle

The Offer is a well-written romance with mature characters, and I loved listening to them! Of course, I especially loved Bram’s Scottish brogue, so hot! The Offer shows that while on the surface, a single mom and a Scottish rogue – confirmed womanizer to boot – don’t have much in common, once you look a little deeper there is much more than meets the eyes to both of them. For the longest time, I’ve wanted to read (or listen to) a Halle book, and I just haven’t gotten around to it until now. I will definitely keep on picking up her books, though, because she knows how to write! The characters were multi-faceted, and I loved how they shared a […]
