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 […]

Review: Rock Chick Rescue – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick Rescue – Kristen Ashley

While Rock Chick Rescue had a lot of fun and hotness going on, I had trouble connecting with Jet, and found Eddie to be slightly stalkerish in his way to approach her. My Rock Chick Rescue review: Jet is one of those women who ‘has no idea’ how beautiful she is, and while I can believe that this can happen, with Jet, this is taken to the extreme, she can’t fathom why Eddie would ever be interested in her. Eddie is a very hot cop, and part of Nightingale’s friends. While he seemed like a great guy for a while, I found him to be so pushy in cases I would probably have called the cops on him! When Jet […]

Review: Love Revolution – Michelle Mankin

Review: Love Revolution – Michelle Mankin

Love Revolution had a bit too much drama for my taste, even if I enjoyed the characters and the overall story just fine. My Love Revolution review: So, a bit much drama made Love Revolution less enjoyable to me, and so did the fact that we followed two couples instead of one. This made me feel like I didn’t have enough time with either couple, and thus, I didn’t really get to know the characters as well as I would have liked. What little I did to see of Sarah made her seem very controlling, both of her environment (and the people around her) in general, and also over her little sister, Samantha. Luckily, I got to know why she […]

Review: November 9 – Colleen Hoover

Review: November 9 – Colleen Hoover

I don’t even know where to start to share my love for November 9! This author! This book! I’ve gone through all the feels, and now that I just finished reading, tears are falling down my cheeks – and they are both happy and sad at the same time. I have no idea how Hoover does it – but she always writes stories that are just perfect for me. My November 9 review: As soon as I got out of bed on November 10, I checked my kindle to see if my pre-order of November 9 had been delivered yet. And then, I did a happy-dance, made coffee and went outside on my terrasse in my PJ and a thick […]
