Review: One Night With a Cowboy (Oklahoma Nights #1) – Cat Johnson

*I received a free ARC of One Night With a Cowboy from Kensington via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* One Night with a Cowboy starts with a lot of deceptions for Becca. As she loses both her job and her boyfriend the same day, she has no idea what to do next. She doesn’t really want to leave New York, but it seems there aren’t that many openings for an English teacher in a local college. Emma, Becca’s perky sister thinks that change is good, and she decides to send Becca’s resumé to a college in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Review: The Demon Lover (Fairwick Chronicles #1) – Juliet Dark

Review: The Demon Lover (Fairwick Chronicles #1) – Juliet Dark

*I received a free ARC of The Demon Lover from Random House / Ballantine Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* When Callie decides to take the job she is offered in Fairwick, little does she know just how much her life will change. She is amazed at their folklore department, and the library at the college is more than she could ever dream of. She sees herself writing more books as well as teaching students who are interested in gothic literature and fairy tales. The Demon Lover starts out with Callie arriving for her interview, and how she isn’t sure if she wants the job or not. However, the Honeysuckle house makes her change her mind very […]

Review: The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) – Richelle Mead

Review: The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) – Richelle Mead

Oh, Adrian, how you grew in The Indigo Spell, I start to understand those who loved you dearly in Vampire Academy better and better with each Bloodlines book! Sydney also made some changes in The Indigo Spell, she understood more about the Alchemists, and also more about her own powers. It was really wonderful to read about the new adventures our merry little gang of vampires, dhampirs and alchemists went through. Both Sydney and Adrian continued to grow, as they had started to already in The Golden Lily.

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

*I received a free ARC of Beautiful Bastard from Gallery Books via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* Beautiful Bastard starts out with angry sex in the very first chapter. Chloe is talking to herself quite a lot in her own head, which some might find endearing, but I found that pretty annoying. For the first two thirds of the story, I thought both Chloe and Bennett were pretty much one-dimensional. The only thing we get to know about them is that they love to tell each other off – just before having rough sex in inappropriate places.

Review: Boundless (Unearthly #3) – Cynthia Hand

Review: Boundless (Unearthly #3) – Cynthia Hand

Boundless is kind of without bounds, and in some ways it could have been better if it had some boundaries. Clara, Christian and Angela leave for Standford at the very beginning of Boundless, and the readers follow them through information as they arrive. The first night, they are taken out of their rooms by the older students for a run around campus in the dark, and Clara gets to know one of Angela’s roommates, as well as the PHE who’s part of her dorm. She also manages to use just a tiny bit of glory to heal a girl’s broken ankle – without anybody noticing that something is up. Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe […]

Review: Devil’s Due (Red Letter Days #2) – Rachel Caine

Review: Devil’s Due (Red Letter Days #2) – Rachel Caine

*I received a free ARC of Devil’s Due from Harlequin UK via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Devil’s Due is even better than Devil’s Bargain, with not only one, but two strong female protagonists! I also loved where the story went, both with the mystery of the psychics and with the way Jazz and Lucia interacted with each other and the other characters.

Review: Radiant (Unearthly #2.5) – Cynthia Hand

Review: Radiant (Unearthly #2.5) – Cynthia Hand

Radiant is a quick novella in the Unearthly series. Clara and Angela are in Rome for the summer, visiting with Angela’s family. And Phen – the mysterious guy who taught Angela all she knows about angels and nephilims – suddenly shows up in the metro and draws Angela to him once more. Radiant is written in dual point of view; one chapter from Angela’s POV, the next from Clara’s. And it was really good to learn more about Angela by literally being inside of her head for a while. Angela seemed very mysterious to me in the prior books in the series, and to understand her better will be helpful for me personally. I believe that their purpose is dual, […]

Review: Devil’s Bargain (Red Letter Days #1) – Rachel Caine

  *I received a free ARC of Devil’s Bargain from Harlequin UK via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Devil’s Bargain isn’t what it seems when you only read the title. But it does have a great story with a mystery and some things that are difficult to explain. Two strong women are the main characters, and this made Devil’s Bargain even more enjoyable.
