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 […]

Blogger Wife Chat Release Day Review ~ Hidden Powers ~ Tara Lain @TaraLain @ViviannaIzzo

Blogger Wife Chat Release Day Review ~ Hidden Powers ~ Tara Lain @TaraLain @ViviannaIzzo

Hidden Powers wasn’t exactly was I was expecting since I didn’t realize it was YA/NA, but TLain exceeded any other expectations I had by taking on another facet of PNR – younger characters. The result was exciting, entertaining, and suspenseful! I didn’t realize that either, but I really loved that it was! Plus, it was nice to see some familiar characters from the Harker pack! First things first, wifey… This is the start of a new series yet it’s a spinoff of TLain’s Harker series. I haven’t read that series and while I did realize these characters had already been introduced but I never felt lost. And it certainly didn’t take away from my enjoyment of Hidden Powers. I believe […]

New Release Review ~ Tamed by the She-Wolf ~ Kristal Hollis

New Release Review ~ Tamed by the She-Wolf ~ Kristal Hollis

  Tamed by the She-Wolf is the fifth installment in KHollis’ Wahyas of Walker’s Run series and a worthy addition. I appreciated getting Angeline’s story and I admired Hollis for incorporating a disability into the story. Highlights: Main Characters I’d met Angeline previously and was more than a little curious about her. She was adamantly against relationships and I wanted to know why. And boy was there a story there! On top of that, she was raised by her dad and two older brothers, having lost her mother early. Because of that, she felt the weight of certain expectations on her shoulders. She didn’t want to disappoint her dad – she felt he’d see her having feelings as a weakness […]

Review ~ Blood Avenged ~ Gabrielle Bisset

Review ~ Blood Avenged ~ Gabrielle Bisset

  I’m a mood reader and I was in the mood for some PNR. Since the box set of books 1-3 in the Sons of Navarus series had been on my ereader for quite some time so I decided to give Blood Avenged a try. While I had some issues with the story, I thought this introductory installment wasn’t too bad and I’ll continue the series. Blood Avenged had a lot of potential. There seemed to be a mythology behind these vampires with their ability, or lack thereof, to sire more vampires and the ruling body that apparently keeps the vampires in line. There was also the blood feud between two vampires in this installment as well as Sasa, her unique abilities […]

Audio Review ~ Darkness Dawns ~ Dianne Duvall

Audio Review ~ Darkness Dawns ~ Dianne Duvall

  Darkness Dawns served as my introduction to Dianne Duvall and I’m kicking myself for not having listened to it sooner! It was chock full of excitement, romance, action, and a new-to-me spin on vampires and immortals. The fact it was narrated by Kirsten Potter was gravy! Highlights: MCs Darkness Dawns revolved around Sarah and Roland and I adored them both! Sarah might be pint-sized but she’s tough – mentally and physically. She’s not one to back down from a challenge – or a rescue – when necessary. That worked to Roland’s advantage since she comes to his aid. Roland is an Immortal Guardian and is described often as being anti-social. He’s prickly and doesn’t interact with anyone if he […]

New Release Review ~ Soulfire ~ Juliette Cross

New Release Review ~ Soulfire ~ Juliette Cross

The Vampire Blood series kicked off my fangirling for JCross’ writing. That series was unique and refreshing and Soulfire – equally unique and refreshing – served to intensify my affection for JCross’ story telling talent. I didn’t write this review right away because I just didn’t have the time but I have to admit that this story and my feelings about it have only improved up reflection. Soulfire has action, romance, suspense, and a message all wrapped up in a Romeo and Juliet-style love story…only with a better ending. 😉 Highlights: Premise and Execution of Plot A myth about the creation of the Morgons – a hybrid dragon/human species – is how the story begins. I appreciated how JCross used this to […]

Release Day Review ~ Darkest Heart ~ Juliette Cross (@Juliette__Cross) #2018NewRelease #COYER

Release Day Review ~ Darkest Heart ~ Juliette Cross (@Juliette__Cross) #2018NewRelease #COYER

  In Darkest Heart, Juliette Cross created an atmospheric world and populated it with brooding heroes and badass heroines. There’s so much to love and then she threw in classic literary quotes and references which made me glow in happiness. Dommiel is a demon who despite his arguments otherwise cares about more than himself. When he’s asked by a friend to help someone he finds he may have gotten himself into more than her bargained for. Because even though he’s been branded a traitor by his own kind, is he really willing to aid the other side? Anya is a warrior angel living on borrowed time. Bitten by a demon prince and infected with his essence, she must find the […]

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 […]

Audioreview: Winter Moon – Dannika Dark

Audioreview: Winter Moon – Dannika Dark

Winter Moon was like an epilogue to the whole Seven series, and I felt like I was visiting with friends I hadn’t seen in a long time. As always, Poole narrated some of my favorite shifters to perfection, and Winter Moon included all of the characters that are part of the Weston pack. Poole’s voices managed to easily distinguish them all, and made my experience of a holiday without electricity a really good one. Some chapters gave a quick view into one of the main couple’s lives, while others involved the pack as a whole. There were a lot of funny quips, especially between the guys, and I loved seeing them with children being a bit older. Also, how the […]
