Review: Rock Chick Reckoning – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick Reckoning – Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Reckoning touched my heart and my soul, and I got to follow several of the characters I’ve come to know and love! My Rock Chick Reckoning review: Rock Chick Reckoning had even more going on than the prior Rock Chick stories, if that’s even possible! A criminal was after each and every one of the rock chicks to get the hot bunch to back off their investigation. Thrown into that was the romance between Mace and Stella, who had dated before, and who still had feelings for each other. I loved that there was so much music involved here, and I would love to hear Stella sing myself. Mace was a little bit more reasonable than his hot […]

Review: Heartbreaker’s Bet – Donna Cummings

Review: Heartbreaker’s Bet – Donna Cummings

Heartbreaker’s Bet is set in the same universe as Back on Track, and it is a light, sweet, humorous and sassy romance! My Heartbreaker’s Bet review: While Heartbreaker’s Bet is short story, Cummings still managed to have enough character development to reel me in, and the humor had me laugh out loud in several places. Both Troy and Bet just wanted something more… something they hadn’t been able to find in their lives before, and while their relationship started out with Bet picking him to help her become a heartbreaker, their chemistry rocked right off the charts from the beginning! Add in a little rivalry between Troy’s bar and another bar, plus some sassy dialogues, and you have the ingredients for […]

Review: Their Fractured Light – Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: Their Fractured Light – Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Their Fractured Light definitely brings the Starbound story full circle. And it’s a story of true hope, hope for humankind, for love, and for faith. I think I really needed this kind of story right now, too. Where choices are important, and where making the right choice can be the most difficult situation of them all. My Their Fractured Light review: The whole Starbound series has had me completely starstruck! This dystopia set several hundred years in the future, and where some of the characters have had to make some very difficult choices brought many important issues to my mind. In Their Fractured Light, the main characters from the prior books were all present, as were Sofia and Gideon whom […]

Review: Hunted by the Others – Jess Haines

Review: Hunted by the Others – Jess Haines

Hunted by the Others is my kind of paranormal / urban fantasy! Shiarra is a very good heroine, in that she is definitely flawed, but fiercely loyal and strong minded. My Hunted by the Others review: It’s kind of strange to me, but Hunted by the Others felt so fresh and new in the paranormal urban fantasy genre, but it was actually released in 2010! I wonder if those stories that were the pre-cursors for books being released now had less pressure? I loved Shiarra, and I really enjoyed her friendship with Sara, too. And let me just say the character development is astounding! Shiarra starts out completely freaked out by every person who isn’t completely human. I didn’t get […]

Review: Rock Chick Revenge – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick Revenge – Kristen Ashley

I was SO excited to finally get Luke’s story, so when I started Rock Chick Revenge, it was with a light heart, ready for some good action and some fun and lots of romance! My Rock Chick Revenge review: Luke appealed to me when I first saw how he softened while with a girl he liked and respected, however, his brief interludes with girls in the books prior to Rock Chick Revenge didn’t come to anything more, as there were other guys on those girls’ minds. With his intense eyes, extreme loyalty, and the mystery he kept about himself by talking very little, I was geared up to love everything about Luke in his story. And I did love him […]

Review: Reaver – Larissa Ione

Review: Reaver – Larissa Ione

What can I say? Reaver was an amazing story, with a long trek through Sheoul, lots of innuendos, some nasty angels, good demons and so much intrigue my head was spinning. My Reaver review: I have started reading this series completely out of order, so I may have missed a thing or two – however, as you can see, I still loved Reaver! The writing is so good, and the characters grab your heartstrings from the beginning without ever letting go. There are incredible fights, both verbal and physical, romance, and of course a level of intrigue that is very hard to find. Reaver definitely showed a new side of himself here, especially because he managed to stay calm and […]

Review: Rock Chick Renegade – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick Renegade – Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Renegade blew my socks off! Jules is the perfect, kick-ass heroine, and Vance made me melt. My Rock Chick Renegade review: I think what I enjoyed the most in Rock Chick Renegade was that Jules actually knew how to fight, use a gun, and take care of herself, plus, Vance actually listened to her when she told him to back off because she wanted to break up with him. Brownie points to Vance for that. Jules’ renegade vigilante justice made so much sense to me, and the way she was ready to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk and fight the fight for what she believed in made me squee and cheer her on. From […]

Review: Magic Shifts – Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Shifts – Ilona Andrews

Magic Shifts shows how life is for Curran and Kate after they leave the pack, and if you thought things would slow down for them, you were very wrong. My Magic Shifts review: The Kate Daniels series continues to be among the very best there is when it comes to Urban Fantasy, and in my opinion. Kate and Curran are a big part of why I love this so much! From the first book and up until now, the changes they have both gone through, the growth, the maturing – it’s pretty amazing, let me tell you! Curran became the alpha of a pack when he was very young, so he has never really been an adult who didn’t have […]

Review: Rock Chick Redemption – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick Redemption – Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Redemption was fucking phat! I especially loved Annette, even if she’s not even officially a rock chick 😀 It took me a little time to warm up to Hank and his bossy ways, but I really loved Roxie – high maintenance and all. My Rock Chick Redemption review: On the run from her ex-boyfriend, a possible drug-dealer and all around bad guy, Roxie arrived in Denver to find her uncle Tex. Rock Chick Redemption started with Roxie arriving at Fornum’s, where the whole gang was there, and she had her first meeting with Tex with the rock chicks and the Nightingale men as an audience. With a half-assed plan on how she’d be able to finally shake Billy […]

Review: Eighteen – J.A. Huss

Review: Eighteen – J.A. Huss

I’m not even sure what I’m going to say about Eighteen! It’s dark. It’s pretty effed up, and it is also a pretty intense and filled with secrets. My Eighteen review: At the beginning of Eighteen, I got to meet Shannon, and most of the time, I enjoyed her. I didn’t really enjoy Mateo, though, because he was so alpha and controlling, when he knew that Shannon had been through hell and partly back already. He was also in a position of power, where Shannon could have felt as if she didn’t have a choice at all. She did have a choice, though, and she made it, even if she wasn’t sure about what to do, or how to deal […]
