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 […]

Audioreview: Pack Challenge – Shelley Laurenston

Audioreview: Pack Challenge – Shelley Laurenston

Pack Challenge is fast paced, a bit mysterious and plenty hot and quite humorous at times. Pack Challenge was my introduction to Laurenston’s writing, and I definitely want more of her stories. I enjoyed her take on shapeshifters, and I really loved Sara from the beginning. Both her snarky relationship with her friends, and the way she interacted with the other characters made me laugh sometimes, and roll my eyes a little other times. The universe of these shifters was well done, and I am very curious as to what else will happen with the Magnus Pack in the future. The chemistry between Sara and Zach was off the chart from the beginning of Pack Challenge, and it was especially […]

Review: Magic Binds – Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Binds – Ilona Andrews

Magic Binds has action at break-neck speed, and still managed to be one of the most romantic and sweet installment in the series at the same time! As always, Kate Daniels is epic! Magic Binds moves forward very nicely, and some loose ends are tied up, while new ones are being made. I loved that Kate was doubting things because of her connection with the land. Feeling the magic get stronger, and how it was sometimes difficult to stay human with all that power, and how Curran was able to anchor her when she could have gone completely mad with it. Magic Binds includes Kate and other characters’ trademark humor, some serious hotness, epic battles, a lot of deceit, secrets […]

Review: Wicked Ride – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Wicked Ride – Rebecca Zanetti

A fast-paced story, Wicked Ride has male and female witches, enhanced humans, demons, vampires, shifters… Romance and suspense, too. My Wicked Ride review: A sassy cop and a dark, enigmatic enforcer, Alexandra and Kellach are the main characters in Wicked Ride, the first book in Zanetti’s new series Realm Enforcers. A great introduction to this universe, where humans, witches, vampires, shifters and demons live side by side, but with the humans thinking they’re ‘it’. I loved how Alexandra had so much courage, knew how to fight and was quite ruthless when it came to fighting crime and criminals. Kellach was a force to reckon with, and I really enjoyed his sarcasm and Irish brogue 😉 The overall storyline took me […]

Review: Protective Instinct – Katie Reus

Review: Protective Instinct – Katie Reus

Protective Instinct was a quick, hot read, filled with mystery and some great shifters! This was my first foray into the Moon Shifter series, and now I want to read all the rest. My Protective Instinct review: Both Ryan and Theresa were strong characters I definitely want to know even better. Weirdly, starting with the last book in the series didn’t make me feel lost at all, even with the people stalking Theresa in Protective Instinct. I got the relationships between Theresa and her sisters, as well as the other shifters they shared the ranch with. Involving vampires and shifters, there was a lot of bad blood, which I’m sure there is more of in the prior books in the […]

Review: Samson’s Lovely Mortal – Tina Folsom

Review: Samson’s Lovely Mortal – Tina Folsom

Samson’s Lovely Mortal is a nice mix of UF, paranormal / vampire love story and mystery. I enjoyed Samson and Aumory a lot, Delilah grew on me. My Samson’s Lovely Mortal review: I have had Samson’s Lovely Mortal on my kindle for a very long time, hidden among other gems I got for free when I first started figuring out there were many other genres out there than I was used to reading. While I have now read quite a few paranormal / urban fantasy love stories, in which vampires and humans kind of intermingle, often without the humans knowledge of everything that is ‘other’, this was quite new for me at the time I picked up this story. While […]

Review: Three Hours – Dannika Dark

Review: Three Hours – Dannika Dark

Three Hours has become my new favorite Dannika Dark story! Very well done, great balance between fights, intrigue and romance, and the characters really showed me what they were made of! Ever since the Seven series started, I have been curious about both Naya and Wheeler, and having them be the main characters in Three Hours was a real treat! Both are strong-minded, loyal to a fault and takes not bullshit from anybody else. Wheeler has always been quite mysterious, he never cared how others judged him based on his grumpy disposition and numerous tattoos. Even when his own pack and brothers would rather choose Ben over him, he let it slide, even if id didn’t sit well with him. […]

Review: Biting Bad – Chloe Neill

Review: Biting Bad – Chloe Neill

Biting Bad is not lacking in humor, nor excitement or even romance, however, I’m still having a little trouble with trust when it comes to Chicagoland… My Biting Bad review: One of the things I really enjoyed in Biting Bad is that Merit and Ethan’s relationship finally seemed a little more balanced, and Ethan was less heavy-handed than usual. I also had fun with the riots investigations, even if the culprit didn’t surprise me in the least. Full of feelings of both love and fear, the story moved along at a nice pace, and the overall plot was well done. I really hope my enjoyment for the Chicagoland series will build back up, but it’s really difficult for me to […]

Blogtour Review: Winter’s Wolf – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review: Winter’s Wolf – Tara Lain

Welcome to my stop on the Winter’s Wolf blogtour, hosted by Enchantress of Books Blogtours. I have my review to share with you today, as well as my favorite quotes and an international giveaway! So come on in and get comfy with Winter 😉 My Winter’s Wolf review: Winter’s Wolf blew me away! Winter is a great character, and I loved how true to himself he stayed throughout the story. Matt, the FBI agent we met in Wolf in Gucci Loafers had a very important part to play, too.  I loved how Damon, Winter’s father, changed his outlook on a lot of things as well, because at the beginning, he was slightly homophobe, had very strict views on human / […]
