Wicked As She Wants (Blud Book #2) by Delilah S. Dawson

3.5 out of 5 flames

From BN.com

True love’s kiss isn’t enough for this Blud princess. But blood and music may win her heart forever. . . .
Delilah S. Dawson’s delightfully dark series takes readers into a clever new world of endless discoveries and sensuous encounters that will leave them breathless.
After four years crammed in a suitcase, drained and unconscious, Ahnastasia Feodor, Crown Princess of Freesia, is not sure which calls to her more: the sound of music or the scent of blood. The source of both is the handsome and mysterious Casper Sterling, once the most celebrated and self-centered musician in Sangland. Fortunately, bleeding one’s subjects dry is expected of Blud royalty. Much to Ahna’s frustration, however, the debauched and reckless enigma—he is definitely not a Bludman, though not exactly human either—is her only ticket back to her snow-rimmed and magical homeland. Ahna needs Casper’s help to defeat an evil sorceress and claim her throne—if she doesn’t drain him first. But as they team up for a harrowing journey filled with pirates and painted ladies, daimons and dashing Bludmen, her craving for blood becomes an unrelenting hunger of the heart. . . .

I still don’t know how I feel about this world in general.  It sounds like Hell and honestly would make me think twice about not signing a will that said if I’m in a coma let me die.   There’s nothing that makes me want to live in it for very long, which makes reading books set in this world hard.  

Dawson decided to rework the story of the doomed Anastasia and her family, and does a good job merging the familiar with her world.  Although I do find that at the end they got around Freesia a little too easily, but where there’s a little money and the will you can find the way.  I wish we could’ve stayed on the flying brothel a little longer since it was the most interesting place I’ve read so far in these books and in the end was far more dangerous than the actual Snow Ball in Freesia.  In fact, after the Maybuck and her denizens, the gypsy witch holding sway in Ahna’s home country seems weak.  And I did feel she was defeated a little too easily in the end.  All that build up and then…wah, wah.

Casper wasn’t a particularly interesting character in the previous book so I was kind of on the fence about his being the “hero” in this one.  Then he wasn’t even the main character, so it took me even longer to warm up to him.  But I did eventually.  Keen, the young lady he has taken under his wing, is far more interesting and I kind of hope that she’ll eventually get a story of her own – after she’s grown up a bit of course.

I will say that Dawson sets up her world well and the rules, beings, people, etc. are definitely well thought out.  I didn’t think it was possible to make vampire like beings unsexy without making them look like Nosferatu, but she’s done it.  Not saying that’s a bad thing, I think it fascinating that they can be so attractive and yet I never feel attracted to them. I feel exactly like what I’d be – prey.

Despite the slight disconnect, though, the chemistry between Ahna and Casper is sizzling and I’m surprised it doesn’t melt some of the snow in Freesia. 

I’d say if you enjoyed the first Blud book, you’ll definitely enjoy this one.

Phantom Wolf by Bonnie Vanak

Phantom WolfPhantom Wolf by Bonnie Vanak
My rating: 3 of 5 flames

This looked interesting, and I thought it might be on the short side, so I grabbed it from netgalley the other day (hooray for auto-approve!).

The first half of this book is really intriguing. We’re drawn instantly into a world of mages, and their 2 classes—the Elemental Mage and the Arcane Mage. The Elementals are the ones who hold all the power (literally), and the Arcanes are little more than servants, or second-class citizens.

But when this story opens, we see the young love between an Arcane (Kelly) and an Elemental (Sam). Unfortunately they don’t have a happy ending. They see instead, Kelly’s father setting fire to Sam’s home, with his family still inside. Kelly never believed it was her father, Sam couldn’t handle the emotions of losing his family and having his girl defending her dad, so he bailed.

Fast forward to the present day, and we see Kelly has been kidnapped and is being tortured, but she’s trying to keep the bad guys from hurting the kid she came to rescue.

Sam is now a Navy SEAL on a paranormal team, and they are there to save the kid. He has no idea Kelly is there, and when he sees her, he figures she’s one of the kidnappers. She is then framed for everything. The Elementals want her to be executed, and example made of her, and her kind stamped out like cockroaches. This makes it hard for Sam and Kelly to have a relationship.

In the meantime, Kelly plans on going to Honduras to rescue the rest of the kidnapped children, but no one believes her. Not until it’s almost too late, that is.

I found this book to be hard to put down because I loved the idea of it. I loved the world, I thought the basic plot was great (I’m a sucker for betrayal plots), and I love when there’s a good romantic suspense element added in to the Paranormal Romance. But there were so many instances where the two Main Characters would get all hot and heavy, and then Kelly would say, “I want to be like when we were younger,” and it would ruin the mood. Once or twice, okay. But so many times! It wasn’t sexy, it didn’t build tension, it just annoyed me.

What I never understood is why Kelly was doing all these missions without any kind of survivalist training. She’s supposedly running a non-profit to save mage children who have been kidnapped, and yet she has only her magic to help her. No back-up, no super awesome skills, it was so weird. Like who in their right mind goes up against bad guys like that without any kind of training? It wasn’t a one-time thing, but it was her lifestyle, shouldn’t she at least have basic self-defense and survival training?

Then enter the SEAL team and I feel like once Sam and Kelly went off alone, it was so unrealistic. All SEAL training flew out the door (except when necessary), and at one point he was tricked into thinking he was rescuing a child, but it was a trap. So he put his gun on the floor when the child said he was scared. Sam had a perfectly good holster for his pistol! I don’t see any SEAL worth his salt putting his weapon on the floor for no reason. From that mid-point on, I had a harder time with some of the choices made by the characters. So many seemed ridiculous!

For instance, the bad guys catch them, and bind them in silver and then dump them in a slaughterhouse room. They turn on all the faucets, plug the drain, and leave. Sam breaks free of the silver mesh, but the faucets are all broken and can’t be turned off. Not once did they try to unplug the drain! Unless they had concrete poured into it, it shouldn’t have been a problem. Kelly nearly drowns during their escape! I was screaming “Unplug the drain you idiots!” at my nook. :/

Other than that, I thought that the whole plot was strong, the writing a bit repetitive, but good, I just got really annoyed at some of the things the characters did. I will read more from this author though, because her world was really interesting and the ending was really pretty good.

Bonds of Need by Lynda Aicher


 4.5 out of 5 Flames

 

It feels like every BDSM story post Fifty Shades is somehow trying to make it an illness or a personality quirk that has to be "fixed" which makes Aicher’s books such a refreshing step away from that.  That may be why I’m giving it such high markings, but it’s honestly a really good read and a really hot one, too.

From Lynda Aicher’s website:

When Kendra Morgan attends a party at an exclusive sex club, she's not driven by mere curiosity. Hoping to prove she's put the past behind her, Kendra must instead face up to needs she's denied for too long. Despite her lingering fears, she can't resist the temptation to play…
Deklan Winters has had his eye on his attractive neighbor for months, but only senses Kendra is no stranger to the BDSM scene when she walks into his club. And he can tell that's not her only secret. What surprises him is his own overwhelming desire to give her what she craves—and to show her a side to the Dom/sub relationship she's never known.
With Deklan's guidance, Kendra begins to accept her forbidden needs and to recognize the fine line between pleasure and pain. But when her former Master returns to reclaim her, it will take all her courage—and all of Deklan's love—to defy her past.

What I really like about Aicher’s books is that the D’s are not egomaniacal, overly possessive a**holes who like to be D’s because they want control of everything.  They’re in it because it’s who they are.  And her Sub’s don’t come off as mindless ninnies who are so overpowered by the big power hungry and controlling man they’ll do whatever he wants.  Again, it’s just who they are.  Her characters are flesh and blood people – which sounds odd when talking about fictional characters – but their messy is believable and in most cases something the reader can relate to.

Another great aspect of this book is that through Kendra’s past traumas Aicher shows an understanding for what healthy and unhealthy D/s realationships look like. 

Getting away from the ‘serious’, let’s talk sex...

Hot, steamy, kinky, loving and sweet…this book has it all.  You get just the right amount of danger to make it exciting intermixed with the right amount of safety so you're not turned off.  It seems to be a rather difficult formula to perfect for most authors.  And they are made even more steamy, at least for me, because I was emotionally invested in these characters.

I cannot wait until the next book.  This is definitely a series worth reading and keeping on your bedside table…for whenever ;)

Mutual Release (Stewart Realty #7) by Liz Crowe


2.5 out of 5

From Goodreads:

Can two dark souls ever make a light?

As president of her own distribution company, Julie Dawson has all she ever wanted -- money, power, and respect. But her carefully crafted façade conceals a torment of abuse and helplessness. After years remaining emotionally aloof, she is finally independent, but alone. Because she refuses to rely on anyone but herself ever again.

Evan Adams is no stranger to success, or personal demons. The horrific trauma that destroyed his twin sister, and tore his family apart, forced him to craft a new life from the ashes of the old. He's content enough, focusing ahead and not dwelling on his murky past. But something important is missing. He knows what that thing is but refuses to acknowledge it.

When a chance encounter brings these two strong-willed but damaged people together, what seems like a long, erotic journey through hell could lead them to a match made in heaven.

MUTUAL RELEASE
A coming of age novel about trust...on the long road to love

I like the way the book focuses on Evan’s story then Julie’s before bringing them together.  It’s an interesting change of pace to get the full backstory and not the character telling you bits and pieces. It gives you a full understanding of how they got to where they are and helps the reader to understand where they are emotionally and psychologically at the time their relationship starts.  For the most part anyway.

I’d say the first 3 parts are a good read.  There are some over dramatic moments but all in all it’s pretty “edge of your seat” stuff especially involving Damian, the kid who moves in with Evan’s family and introduces Evan to his Dom side.  But Damian is not a real Dom and more a true abuser so it takes Evan a while to find the right balance, which is a fascinating journey to read. 

Julie was traumatized in her teens and has risen above it, mostly, and is a good dominant sub to Evan’s sometimes submissive dominance.  They get through the normal ups, downs and hang-ups people with their horrible pasts have and it looks like everything will be happily ever after.

Then the book just goes off the deep end of silly.

Like:
1.     Julie goes off birth control without telling Evan even though she knows he doesn’t want to be a father – guess what they break up.  
2.     Julie believes Damian when he tells her awful things about Evan, despite knowing Damian’s a master manipulator and liar.  She even tells Damian to his face she doesn’t believe him then suddenly she does.  Guess what, her and Evan separate, again.

In fact in Part IV (titled “The Marriage" – take from that what you will) they separate and come back together so many times I got whiplash.  What started as two people who might be able to heal each devolves into one of the most unhealthy relationships I’ve read in a while.  And the thrown together wedding?  Just so confusing. 

Sad really because it started with such promise…

I'd say read Part I because it is a fascinating story.  Parts II and III are decent enough.   Skip Part IV because I really can't tell you what the heck went on there.

Wicked in Your Arms by Sophie Jordan

Wicked in Your Arms (Forgotten Princesses, #1)Wicked in Your Arms by Sophie Jordan
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars




I got this for free the other day and thought I’d flip through to see if it was something I’d like.(Click here for link to amazon) Within minutes I was hooked. I read this in one night, on my phone because my husband was asleep next to me.

The crown prince of Maladonia Sevastian Maksimi is being told by his aging grandfather the king, that after a decade of war and bloodshed, his people need something to look forward to. He wants to see Sev settled down and married (preferably to a wealthy woman) before Sev becomes king (ie before grandpa dies).

Sev was not supposed to be king, but his brother was killed in the war, and Sev is now doing his absolute best to be a good king, and to put his country above his own wants and needs. So he heads off to merry ol’ England to search for a bride. It’s all very practical and diplomatic. Until he meets Miss Grier Hadley.

Grier is in England to snare a titled husband. Her father knocked up her mother years ago and now he’s a very wealthy man who owns a very profitable gaming hell (I think more could have been done with that-I think he could have used his contacts and called in debts to see his daughters married off, but that wouldn’t have worked with this plot). So her father has found his bastard daughters and settled a huge dowry on them. Seriously huge. Huge enough to let the likes of Grier into Society. (FYI she’s lived as a gameskeeper in Wales her whole life-ladylike isn’t exactly her forte).

So at a ball one night, Grier overhears pretty much everyone talking about her and her sister. None of it is flattering. But the worst is when she hears Sev speaking about her as if she is cattle to be bought. He lists her flaws (of which there are apparently many), and the only good quality is apparently her money.

Grier dumps her drink over his head-Oops!- and he is not the least bit perturbed. In fact he’s...intrigued. The two are thrown together again and again, but I liked how they were together. Sev is surprised she turns down his offer to be his mistress, and is surprised that he’s becoming fascinated by her. At one point he pulls the alpha “she’s mine” bit with his cousin, and instead of being surprised at himself, he decides that she will be his. Simple as that. But of course, it’s never that simple.

Grier has a man from her old life who tries to marry her for her dowry, and that is really where we Sev change. Not just out of jealousy, but out of love. He's starting to realize this "thing" he has with Grier is more than just wanting her, and it has been for a while. But he has to convince her of that.

There is a twist at the end that felt like it wasn’t even part of the book until the last third or so. It wasn’t bad or anything, but it didn’t need to be there. Or it could have been woven in sooner so it didn’t feel like such a surprise.

Other than that, I’ve been recommending this book to everyone this week. In fact I just got the next in the Forgotten Princesses series and I've requested the latest one for review (so look for that one coming soon!How to Lose a Bride in One Night ).

Wicked in Your Arms is still free, grab it and I don’t think you’ll regret it!

The Demon's Song by Kendra Leigh Castle

The Demon's Song (Hearts of the Fallen, #1)The Demon's Song by Kendra Leigh Castle
My rating: 3.5 of 5 flames



I really enjoy Kendra Leigh Castle’s Dark Dynasty series, so when I saw this I was really excited to be asked to review it. There were a couple things that bugged me though-I felt like I was missing something, and I felt like something about it was really familiar.

This is from the author:

”*While this is a new series, it takes place in the same world as the book Renegade Angel
and novella Vivi and the Vampire" (found in the anthology [book:Vacation with a Vampire: Stay\Vivi and the Vampire\Island Vacation|13545614]). "It isn't necessary to have read either, but these prior Harlequin releases each tell a story of characters you'll meet in the Hearts of the Fallen series - specifically, Raum and Justin. They should be considered connected works, but the Hearts of the Fallen begins with The Demon's Song.”


Just FYI I really loved Renegade Angel read my review on Smart Bitches Trashy Books here)

So that being said, I did enjoy The Demon’s Song, I just think that while the story stands on its own, Renegade Angel is a great book and sets the world up well.

This one starts out with a couple of girls sneaking into an upscale club to rescue their roommate. They’re not sure what’s going on, but they know it can’t be good. Sofia bumps into Phenex, the entertainment for the club, and can’t understand her attraction to him, or his to her, for that matter.

Phenex is the Angel of Song, but he’s fallen, and now he’s no longer in hell, but he’s not exactly happy either. When he sees the girl he bumped into race away in fear, he knows something’s going on. He leaves the stage and bolts after her. They both find a vampire draining her roommate dry. Phenex kills the vamp, but he and his friend Justin (owner of the club and the vampire king), now believe that not only is this not an isolated incident, but Sofia’s life is now in danger.

Phenex appoints himself her bodyguard and these two have some super sexy moments, but there was at this point, a whole lot of nothing happening. I mean the romance between the two was great, but the suspense plot took the back burner. I wouldn’t have minded but it was too, convenient.

At one point she even went back to work. Really? Knowing you’re up against fallen angels, demons and vampires, you think work is where you should be? Really? No.

I liked this one, I enjoy this author, and the ending was good, but I really think it shouldn’t be a stand-alone. Reading Renegade Angelsets it up and the world-building was so much better in that book. I think having different publishers for each book is partially why the different vibe. But I don’t think this works well as a stand-alone. I also hope that the next one will be a bit tighter.

Last Kiss Goodnight by Gena Showalter









3.5 out of 5 flames
 
I would love to say my problem with this book was first book in the series problem, but sadly it’s not really the first book in the series. I mean technically it’s the first book in the Otherworld Assassins series, but it’s a spin-off from the Alien Huntress books where the world is already established. 

Quick summary is that there are 3 Black Ops agents who are investigating missing Otherworlders. They’re even going to go undercover in AIR (from the Alien Huntress series). But before they can leave, the meeting place they’re in explodes and all 3 agents are taken…somewhere. Solo is sold into the Circus (I’m assuming the others will each have a story coming up). So far so good, right?

We’ve already met sweet Vika (in the prologue) whose father runs a freakshow circus. She feels horribly for how the animals are treated, but back when she was young, she tried to let the animals go and her father beat her and made her shoot her favorite lion. She tried once more when she was older, and her father beat her so badly she lost her hearing. So by the time Solo is captured, she keeps her head down, and mouth shut, and plots. But her plots need time and money, and they never included a sexy Otherworlder either.

I feel like the book had two different vibes. The first half was slow and had no humor whatsoever, whereas the second half really had that typical Gena Showalter feel. I mean, I get that the in the first half of the book the hero is caged (he’s an Otherworlder who’s been kidnapped and sold into a freakshow circus-but he’s also a Black Ops agent and if anyone can break free, he can) so there’s very little interaction that can happen between a caged “animal” and his caretaker Vika.  But maybe he shouldn’t have been caged for that much of the book then? I don’t know, honestly, what it was, but I didn’t feel like this was a Gena Showalter book. The lack of humor was probably the biggest thing that bugged me. Showalter has a fabulous sense of humor that shines through in all of her books, whether it’s interaction between the characters or interaction between the narrative voice and the reader, but it’s always there. Having it decidedly missing detracted from the book. Especially in an established world.

The biggest thing that bothered me, though, were Solo’s 2 “imaginary friends,” or whatever they were. I get that one was a guardian for him, and one was more of a leech, (think angel/devil on the shoulder) but it wasn’t necessary to the book. It was weird and reminded me of JR Ward’s Wizard for Phury. I hated it in Ward’s book and I hated it in Showalter’s book. Also the huge overuse of light vs. dark drove me bonkers. Why? It was a great idea, but seriously it was shoved at us from every other page.

I did enjoy it enough to want to continue on in the series, and as many reviews have mentioned, this one isn’t as steamy as she usually writes, but I didn’t think that it was an issue the way the story was-I mean, Vika and Solo really couldn’t do anything for a big chunk of the book. I’m also not judging Showalter for one “meh” book. But I will say that if it hadn’t picked up towards the end, I don’t think I’d have rated it what I did. It would have been lower-As it is, I'm being generous with the 3.5. I liked it, but for Showalter I just expect better.

Midnight Secrets by Ella Grace (aka Christy Reece)

-->
From BN.com:
On a hot southern night, with a storm on the horizon, a family is shattered. Three beautiful daughters—Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina Wilde—go on with their lives, each significantly changed, as they bear the memory of the murder-suicide that killed their parents. For years, they have stayed away from Midnight, Alabama. Until Midnight calls them home.
 


Savannah is the first one back, when a grueling case in Nashville leads the young prosecutor to seek shelter in the quiet of the once grand Wilde mansion. But when she finds letters casting doubt on her family’s dark, shameful past, she realizes that peace in Midnight is a shallow façade and sinister secrets lurk beneath the surface. Zach Tanner, once the town’s bad boy, is now the new police chief and still has a wild hold over her. Zach can feel it, too, but he hurt Savannah once. As teenagers, they broke every rule together. Now it’s his job to keep her safe, even though he isn’t sure who her enemies are—or which ones might be his own.

So here is my biggest beef with this novel.  The secret behind the murder-suicide of the parents is solved in the first book.  Come again?  That’s right.  All three sisters have gone into a form of law enforcement – lawyer, private investigator, police detective – because of the tragedy, and what I would think should be the unifying theme throughout the trilogy is finished in this book.   I’m still scratching my head over that one.

Ok, my second beef is the cover.  I requested this book thinking military, special ops, something of that sort.  I mean read that overview again, does it mention military?  So why is the cover a guy wearing dog tags?  Yes, Zach served and it had something to do with him breaking Savannah’s heart years ago, but he’s not associated with it anymore.  He’s not in some spec ops unit, or undercover.  He’s the local police chief.  False advertising.  I hate it when publishers do that! 

My final beef is the plot.  Like I said earlier, the parents should have been a running theme, not the main plot thrust.  For goodness sake Savannah has a major baddie in Nashville threatening her and instead of that kind of danger following her, we get the “town has dark secrets” plot?  I don’t know, maybe the author felt that using the “bad guys follow girl and try to kill her plot” wasn’t exciting enough.  I don’t know.  I’m all sorts of confused with this one.  I don’t like it when I feel a good plot point is wasted.  Why bring it up if you’re not going to use it?

Moving past those, I liked the book.  The relationship between Zach and Savannah is nice, and you really want them to get past their 10 years of heartbreak.  The are certain characters in town that are fun to read, and the small town life is described in a very familiar way.  I also really like the relationship between the sisters and the fact that instead of being aloof with each other they rely on one another even if they are miles apart.  I am interested in finding out what their “stories” are because the other two seem much more interesting to me.  Maybe that’s why we got Savannah out of the way first.

I’d say this is a 3 out of 5 mostly because of the solid writing, sexual tension and relationships between people and not because of plot or scorching sex scenes.

Beauty and the Blacksmith by Tessa Dare

Beauty and the Blacksmith  (Spindle Cove, #3.5)Beauty and the Blacksmith by Tessa Dare
My rating: 5 of 5 flames

I loved this one. It’s lighter than some of Ms. Dare’s previous works, but it worked so well. The main conflict in this story is that Aaron, the hero, is a blacksmith, while Diana, the heroine, is destined for marriage to a duke. Just ask her mama.

But what I liked about that conflict is that it was real. I don’t think it would have worked as a novel-length story, but for a novella, it was perfect.

For any Spindle Cove fans, you already know of Miss Diana Highwood and her marriage-minded mama. For those who are new to the series, Diana has come to Spindle Cove to recuperate from her breathing difficulties, but in the past 2 years hasn’t had any problems. During these past couple years, Diana has become infatuated with Aaron the blacksmith. Every single piece of jewelry or metal she can possibly break, she has broken just to have an excuse to have him fix it.

Aaron has started to notice.

More than that, Aaron has started to notice Diana noticing him:

“I wonder about it. Why you come so often. Why every metal latch and clasp and rivet you possess seems to need mending of late.” His voice grew deeper, almost dreamy. “I’ve told myself you’re just bored with this village. With this weather, there’s little else to do.”
He circled her, running his finger beneath that chain. Branding her with a necklace of his touch.
“Other times”—she caught a wry note in his voice—“I decide you’ve been sent by the devil to torment me for my sins.”
He came to stand before her, holding that vial that dangled from her necklace. He pulled gently, and she swayed toward him. Just an inch.
“And then sometimes I think maybe . . . just maybe . . . you’re hoping for something to happen. Something like this.”


I won’t tell you what “this” is ; )

I think that this is a sweet and fun novella that will fill that need when you just want a happy book, y'know? The romance is sweet, the forge isn't the only thing that's hot, and there's even a teeny mystery side-plot that nudges Diana to do something she might not otherwise have done. What a great series, and I can't wait for you guys to read this one.

Review of ICED by Karen Marie Moning


Books written by Karen Marie Moning never fail to deliver; but Karen Marie Moning books read by the voices of Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross are a thrill to the senses.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this next chapter in the Fever series, it's focus on Dani "Mega" O'Malley. I was scared that I might be one annoying scene after the next. Well... I found myself actually enjoying the world seen through Dani's eyes. Although I just couldn't get past the fact that Dani is only 14 years old, right? The entire book had this strange love "square", yes I said square. Enter Christian McKeltar, oh yeah, you remember that sexy Scot that was a hunky bartender at Ryodan's bar? He's back and sporting some dark Fae Prince sex appeal.... and Ryodan; bar owner, badass and all round "WTF are you anyways?", and to complete the mix is boy genius; Dancer. I loved Dancer's character in the book, but really wished to find out more about this tall, lanky and resourceful "bestie" of Dani's. I hope that in the future we see much more of this interesting bloke. There was a strange "vibe" going on between Ryoden and Dani all throughout the book; and creepy lecherous moments between Christian and Dani. I'm not sure which disturbed me more... But I knew to expect something after all the chatter in the blogs and reviews. I found nothing wrong with the way the tale unfolded, but rather enjoyed the journey. The book is jam packed with action, adventure and never ending trouble that Dani always seems to get herself into. The great chemistry between Dani and Ryodan makes this book, weather they were saving each others life or trying to kill each other; it kept me entertained throughout. In the end, Dani teams with all of her "square" fan club and risks life and limb to save her beloved Dublin. You get your HEA... well sort of.

Her Warriors' Three Wishes - Carrie Ann Ryan



***Spoiler Alert & Caution must be 18 or older to read!***
 
“Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe” 






Angels, Demons, Brownies and Dragons Oh, My!  Carrie Ann Ryan’s second book in the Dante’s Circle Series continues the journey of seven friends who were struck by lightning and lived to become something OTHER than human. They say that there is a True Half or Soul Mate for everyone but in some cases Triad’s are formed. Can anyone say Ménage!    

This is no meek tale but one filled with revenge and intrigue, where a happily ever after isn’t all knight’s in shining armor, but sometimes WISHES come true without all the fluff and fancy. Carrie takes us literally through the depths of hell and back to put her heroine and in this case her TWO heroes together.  She takes us on a wild ride with hot steamy up against the wall sex scenes F/M/M, as well as M/M so be prepared. 

Jamie Bennett – book keeper and book store owner, has been suffering for a year since meeting and being rescued by one very sexy Angel named Ambrose.  She knows that Ambrose is her True Half but he’s nowhere to be found.  After saving her life Ambrose high tails it back to the Angel realm and hasn’t been seen since.  She can’t make the change to whatever she’s meant to be without doing the nasty with Ambrose, but he just doesn’t seem to want to step up to the plate.

Ambrose is a 5000 + years old Angel – he had his world torn apart during the last Angel/Demon war when he lost his children and pregnant wife.  He doesn’t think he can go through that again.  He realizes Jamie is his True Half, but believes she’s way too young to be stuck with an old Angel like him. Ambrose knows he’s being a bit of a chicken where Jamie is concerned but he also has the feeling that there just might be another someone destined to be with her.  What’s an Angel to do??

Demons need souls to survive, Balin is a demon who refuses to take a soul and he’s dying.   The only chance he has to survive is to find his True Half, but his 300th birthday is fast approaching, if she’s not found before then it’s bye-bye Balin.  Since he’s literally stuck in Hell his chances of meeting Ms. Right are slim to none.  A little magic just might be needed to pull this off.

Demon games, imprisonment and torture, fiery pits of Hell with a bit of magic and of course we can’t forget the sex all wrapped up in this amazing sequel.  She has me WISHING for the next book to come out soon!

A Vampire’s Salvation (A Beyond Human Novella) by Virna DePaul


  It has some pretty steamy scenes but they cannot make up for the heroine.  I spent the entire novella either rolling my eyes at her or wanting to smack her.
I’d say because it’s a novella I just didn’t have time to get into the story, but that not’s true.

From Author’s Website:

Jacob La Costa Rios is the head of the California governor’s security team; he’s also a vampire who wants the governor, a presidential hopeful, to support the peaceful integration of vampires into human society. Unfortunately, there are others who oppose Jake’s plan. Plus, Jake’s a little distracted by discovering his one true mate, the human female who can give him everything he’s always wanted: love, children, and continuing immortality. Francesca Marie Stewart is the governor’s “go-green” political consultant.
Although she’s been attracted to Jake from day one, her priority is her career and protecting her heart. But then Jake blatantly propositions her and Frankie, who hasn’t experienced sexual intimacy since she was seventeen-years-old, decides it’s time to take what she wants—within reason. No matter—once Jake makes love to Frankie, he knows reason will be the farthest thing from her mind. Then he just has to eliminate the person threatening her, reveal the fact he’s a vampire, and convince her that trusting him will bring both of them eternal happiness.

Jake Rios is the typical hot alpha male vampire.  Over six feet of sexy and a man who will do what he must to protect his mate.  He also seems to be a man who will tolerate his mate’s stupidity, but I guess when you’ve spent 200 years looking for “the one” so you can finally get someone pregnant then you’d put up with a lot as well.  And let’s just savor that for a moment shall we?  So your whole purpose in finding a mate is so you can knock the little woman up?!?!  Ok, and the fact that unmated vampires who reach 201 without mating start to decline in power.  So there’s something about them losing sanity or peace or whatever.  Oh, and did I mention that an unmated vampire male couldn’t even ejaculate inside anyone but his mate?  That’s handy.  However this begs the question: If males have to find their mates so they can ejaculate and impregnate her so they can stay sane, what recourse do female vampires have?  I don’t know because we’re never told they exist until after a mating.  Hmmm….

Francesca “Frankie” Stewart is just an idiot.  I get that getting kidnapped at the age of seventeen by the man you thought you loved would be traumatic and would create trust issues, but that’s no excuse.  Heaven save us from the overreacting female.  So she hasn’t had sex since she was seventeen (I can’t remember how old she is now, given her actions I’d say 18 but she’s probably mid twenties), has sworn off men, but just can’t help being drawn to Jake.  I get it, he’s gorgeous and got all that vampy charisma.  So she sleeps with him and during sex she discovers he’s a vampire when he bites her neck and starts to drink her blood.  So she readily accepts that, even asks him about what is/isn’t true – like the fact they cannot go out in sunlight.  So then when she wakes up in the morning to find him gone she doesn’t go “Oh hey my vamp lover can’t be in the sun so he’s probably gone somewhere to wait out the day” she goes “OMG, he’s gone and didn’t leave a note the *ssh*l* just wanted to get laid! I HATE HIM!”   Stupid.  That’s pretty much all I can about her.

It’s a shame, too, because the plot about the governor and bringing vamps mainstream sounds really intriguing.  I also feel there could’ve been more done with the threat to Frankie from someone that was involved with her kidnapping.  And the sex was pretty hot, not gonna lie.  Good bones, but needed a different female, Jake is ok but loving Frankie makes him a little weak in my eyes.  I think this would’ve gotten a much higher rating if it weren’t for Frankie’s freak out.  It just made no sense whatsoever and brought the entire novella down.  Sadly.
