#OctobeRec Fest Review #4 ~ Lucifer’s Daughter ~ Eve Langlais

#OctobeRec Fest Review #4 ~ Lucifer’s Daughter ~ Eve Langlais

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Title: Lucifer’s Daughter Author: Eve Langlais Narrator: Rebecca Estrella Recommended by: Melanie @Hot Listens Lucifer’s Daughter wasn’t my first Eve Langlais read but I’d met Muriel in another book and really wanted her story. Melanie really liked ELanglais and recommended this series so I gave it a go in audio. I adored Muriel’s story and REstrella’s narration for the most part. Highlights: Characters Muriel is quite entertaining. She’s strong, independent, smart, honest, a virgin… hehe Yeah, her dad is not […]

ARC Review: Sapphire Flames – Ilona Andrews

ARC Review: Sapphire Flames – Ilona Andrews

Sapphire Flames brings all the magic, the fights, the intrigue, the romance, and the tension I have gotten used to with the Hidden Legacy series! While I would have loved more Nevada and Rogan, I have to say Sapphire Flames still blew me away. Catalina is definitely a worthy heroine, and I loved how she wanted to take care of things herself. Just so that Nevada and Rogan could have a little alone time. The way the Houses tried to move in on her, and take her out made for a lot of action. In Sapphire Flames, I loved how Alessandro tried to find more with Catalina. She resisted all his advances, though, because she knew that people found themselves […]

Audio Review ~ Night Reigns ~ Dianne Duvall

Audio Review ~ Night Reigns ~ Dianne Duvall

Night Reigns was equally as gripping and action-packed as its predecessor. Not only did I get Marcus’ and Ami’s story, but Duvall also delivered a few more pieces to the overall puzzle. I’m entranced with all the characters and the overall story! Highlights: Characters Marcus has believed for some time now that he doesn’t have much to live for. He lost his first love – twice – and he simply lives to fulfill his duties as an Immortal Guardian but does so recklessly. Then Seth assigns Ami as his Second and Marcus comes to realize he might have something to live for after all. We’d gotten a time glimpse of Ami in book 1 and I was more than a […]

New Release Review ~ When the Gods Forget ~ Kennedy Daly

New Release Review ~ When the Gods Forget ~ Kennedy Daly

In When the Gods Forget, my questions from the previous book weren’t really answered. In fact, I came away with even more questions. However, the story was just as action-packed and emotional as its predecessor. Highlights: Characters Teagan is brave, reckless, tenacious, strong, and loyal. I adored her even more in When the Gods Forget because she’s a survivor. She’s endured so much and yet she never gives up. She needed to do a bit of soul searching in this installment and even though she made a few rash decisions – which I can forgive due to her age – I was proud of her for being true to herself and doing the right thing. As for Damian, well he […]

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. […]

Audioreview: Keystone – Dannika Dark

Audioreview: Keystone – Dannika Dark

Keystone was even better in audio version than it was when I read it myself – I was so immersed in the story I was happy with the morning traffic. Story: Keystone is set in the Mageri universe, and since I’m already familiar with how the different breeds and the politics work, it was great to go back for a visit. Raven is a lost soul in many ways. First of all, she’s a mix of vampire and mage. Also, her vampire maker abandoned her as soon as she was made. This, of course, has made her resentful, and she has no love for vampires in her heart. Because she is all alone, and not registered with breed, she lives […]

Audioreview: Hell’s Revenge – Eve Langlais

Audioreview: Hell’s Revenge – Eve Langlais

Hell’s Revenge is filled with a solid plot, mystery, suspense, some extreme hotness and lots of humor. Story: Hell’s Revenge is a risqué story, in which Muriel lives with her two consorts, David and Auric. And because of her sex-based powers, she has to make sure she gets enough sex. Which definitely brought out both a lot of steam, and some much needed   to help with all the break-neck speed action. Muriel finds out that she’s pregnant. Her up-until-now unknown mother shows up unexpectedly to share the news with her, Lucifer, and the two dads. Not only does she inform them all about the pregnancy, she also explains to them that she needs the baby once it’s born. Hell’s Revenge […]

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Becoming Dragon was a delightful tale, filled with humor, action, steam and more. The narration was well done, and I was so happy to have this to listen to on my commute to and from work. Story: Becoming Dragon is about… you guessed it – dragons! And it’s by Eve Langlais, so I knew I was in for some good laughs. Plus steamy romance, and I also got a rather down to earth and doubting hero. Brandon had been experimented on, and with his DNA sliced, he was in a weird hybrid form that made him think of himself as a monster. Aimi, however, did not find him to be monstrous at all. Quite the opposite, which made for some […]

Review: Archangel’s Viper – Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Viper – Nalini Singh

Archangel’s Viper was a whirlwind of plot, action and feels! Fast paced, with a lot at stake, I was taken for a trip I won’t soon forget. Story: Archangel’s Viper is about Holly and Venom, and the attraction between them. It’s also about the voice Holly hears in her mind, and how she’s grown extremely strong and fast in a short time. She needs discipline, which Venom has in spades. But she needs more than being a fighter, too. Venom and Holly go on a dangerous trip to figure out what is happening to her, and not one, but two Archangels are needed to deal with some of the things that come up on that trip. I loved getting to […]

Review: Wicked Bite – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Wicked Bite – Rebecca Zanetti

Wicked Bite packed an even bigger punch than the four prior books in the Realm Enforcers series! Action, fights and betrayal that made my head spin. Story: I was happy to get a book where Nessa and Bear were the main characters, but I hadn’t really counted on Nessa actually going undercover. She seemed young and a bit inexperienced in the prior book, but she was very far from it. Bear was still suffering from changing too many times in the prior story, and it appeared as if his life might be in danger. There chemistry between Nessa and Bear was very strong. But neither of them really trusted the other. Wicked Bite involved a lot of the plot that […]
