Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Lady Luck ~ KC Cross

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Lady Luck ~ KC Cross

Lady Luck upped the suspense a notch or twenty. This series keeps getting better and better. I was excited for Luck’s story and Cross didn’t disappoint. She gave Luck his perfect match in Nyleena and she game just enough clues to have me thinking I might just have some of the answers. Of course, I’m probably wrong. 😉 I loved how the suspense got better, and that while we definitely got answers, we got a lot more questions, too! Ha! I always think I have figured something out, only to realize in the next book that’s not exactly how things were… that’s part of what makes this series so good, though. I thought it was interesting that Nyleena had such a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Big Dicker ~ KC Cross

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Big Dicker ~ KC Cross

I think I might have enjoyed Big Dicker even more, wifey Jimmy is a hoot! And Delphi is a good match for him. 😉 I definitely enjoyed this one more. So funny, and I loved how nobody manages to pronounce his name correctly. It makes me giggle every single time! First, I just want to say that I thought it was awesome Xyla was getting a girl’s vacay! I admire the fact that Jimmy and his brothers see the bots as “people” who have rights and deserve respect. I don’t know if Cross is making a statement there but I like that anti-discrimination/prejudice is such an integral element anyway. What do you think? I love that bots are seen as […]

Review ~ Polaris Rising ~ Jessie Mihalik

Review ~ Polaris Rising ~ Jessie Mihalik

Polaris Rising is an incredibly impressive debut. Space opera isn’t a genre I read much of but this book was un-put-downable! The world building was excellent, the character development was awesome, the plot, sub-plots, and what I assume will be the over-arching story plot created such an entertaining read. I liked it all! 😉 Highlights: Characters Ada was just the kind of kickass heroine I adore. She gave up a life of luxury – she’s a daughter of one of the ruling Houses in the ‘verse – on principle. See, Ada didn’t agree with being sold into marriage. She’s held a variety of jobs since leaving home and she’s currently a mercenary. It’s just that she’s a mercenary who’s been […]

Blogger Wife New Release Chat Review ~ Booty Hunter ~ KC Cross (JA Huss)

Blogger Wife New Release Chat Review ~ Booty Hunter ~ KC Cross (JA Huss)

I have to admit, wifey, I had a great time with Booty Hunter. The characters were awesome, it was funny, it was suspenseful, and it was HOT! Good times all around. 😉 I agree, wifey! The humor actually had me laughing out loud more than once! I loved Harem Station, because what a novel place to include in a story, right? Especially as the story unfolded and things weren’t exactly as they seemed. In the beginning, I was trying too hard to compare this to Huss’ Junco series. I hate that I do that – compare – but I couldn’t seem to help it. Anyway, once I stopped comparing and let Booty Hunter be its own thing, I really got […]

Audio Review ~ The Protector ~ Elin Peer

Audio Review ~ The Protector ~ Elin Peer

The synopsis for The Protector essentially reeled me in. I mean, a world ruled by women? You can understand my curiosity, right? And EPeer didn’t disappoint me. Highlights: Premise/Plot EPeer did an excellent job of creating this futuristic world where women rule, crime is virtually non-existent, men are docile, and peace abounds. She illustrated how the world came to be as it is with an inventive history and present. With the exception of the Northlands, the world lives by a “we” mentality rather than “us versus them.” When Christina goes to the Northlands, both she and Bolder learn a lot about each other’s cultures, their misconceptions and that not everything about the other’s world is bad. Characters Christina and Bolder […]

Series Review: The Illuminae Files – Amie Kaufmann and Jay Kristoff

Series Review: The Illuminae Files – Amie Kaufmann and Jay Kristoff

Beware readers! I am reviewing all three books in one go. There may be spoilers from books 1 and 2 in the review of book 3.  When Illuminae was first released, it was one of those immense buzz-books from the get-go. Remember? I was excited about it, too, and I bought the book as soon as was possible. Then, I left it on my shelf. Until I went to BEA in 2016, where I got an advanced copy of Gemina… which I also put on my shelf once I returned home. See a pattern here? The books appealed to me, but I just kind of didn’t get to them. Until one of my favorite authors told me that her co-author […]

#ARC #Review: Anarchy Chained – J.A. Huss

#ARC #Review: Anarchy Chained – J.A. Huss

Anarchy Chained is quite the finale to the SuperAlpha series! So much was going on, and the wicked twists and turns were out of this world – literally! Anarchy Chained was such a wicked trip! I am still trying to catch my breath, get my wits about me and make my heartbeat slow back down! Huss is a master at mind-fucks! She really, really is. And with this story, she took it even further than usual in my opinion. At the beginning, I was a bit lost, and I continued to feel like the story was a couple of paces ahead of me for most of the time, and it was truly thrilling to never guess a single thing that […]

Audio Review: Starflight – Melissa Landers

Audio Review: Starflight – Melissa Landers

Starflight was a fast-paced and action filled space adventure with great characters and a fantastic storyline! Starflight was such an exciting, fast-paced space adventure I’m kicking myself for not listening to it sooner! The characters were all complex, and the overall storyline amazing. Fights, more than one climax, plus all the feels – I just fell completely for this one. The complexity of the storyline and the well fleshed out characters were the main reason I loved the story. I was amazed at how one of the characters started out as an antagonist – whom I detested! – and then, little by little, the character changed and became one of the protagonists and I cheered them on. The action is […]

Review: Morning Star – Pierce Brown

Review: Morning Star – Pierce Brown

Morning Star. It blew my mind. My brain is scrambled. My heart is broken. My breath is taken. Morning Star is dark, following several different characters, even if a lot of the narration is from Darrow’s perspective. There is treason, suspected treason, politics, war, torture… and there is still a sense of hope in places, where the characters are ready to continue the war if that means the future will be better for those who come after them. However, there are also characters who are ready to continue the war for their own gain, for greed, to make sure the Golds stay on top of the societal pyramid. The writing is beautiful, even when the subject matter is ugly. Brown […]

Review: Their Fractured Light – Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: Their Fractured Light – Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Their Fractured Light definitely brings the Starbound story full circle. And it’s a story of true hope, hope for humankind, for love, and for faith. I think I really needed this kind of story right now, too. Where choices are important, and where making the right choice can be the most difficult situation of them all. My Their Fractured Light review: The whole Starbound series has had me completely starstruck! This dystopia set several hundred years in the future, and where some of the characters have had to make some very difficult choices brought many important issues to my mind. In Their Fractured Light, the main characters from the prior books were all present, as were Sofia and Gideon whom […]
