Reviews: Nora Roberts’ Birthright, The Witness and Chasing Fire.

So I’m currently on a romantic suspense binge and since the new UBB has a feature of having multiple books per post what better way to use it then when I’m bingeing. I have to say this, I really loved the female leads in these books, I mean the guys/love interest were great but the female leads especially in The Witness and Chasing fire were something else. They were quite different from each other but they were so great, no whining, TSTL moment or acting like a bitch. The writing was also great and vivid. Birthright was my first romantic suspense book by Nora Roberts, […]

Excerpt As if her thoughts had made him appear, Connor strode into the courthouse. Her pulse started beating double time, her stomach muscles tightening. Good Lord, the man was a fucking panty dropper. She’d only been away from him for a few hours and it felt like years since she’d experienced his presence. In jeans and a fitted gray T-shirt that molded to his muscles like her hands itched to do, he personified confidence and authority. Hot, rugged male. His gaze connected with hers immediately and darkened. She thought back to that morning when he’d dressed in the early morning light, his abs flexing […]

Review This is a pretty strong start to a new series Realm Enforcers, a spin-off from Dark protectors  series. In short, it’s kind of a mixture of motorcycle gangs with cops, magic and paranormal creatures thrown in.

He has previously made appearances in the dark protectors series and is the cousin of one heroines in the series.  Kell and his brothers are […]

Excerpt: Scorched by  Jennifer L. Armentrout + Giveaway!

Excerpt “You’ve been avoiding me all day.” “Have not.” He cocked his head to the side and raised both brows. “You practically hid in your room or attached yourself to Syd all day.” “I was…I was spending girl-time with her,” I said. “And napping.” “Andrea…” He’d been right. I had avoided him. Apparently, I wasn’t doing that great of a job of it. “The same with last night. You barely talked to me.” “What?” Dumbfounded, I felt like screaming that word. “I barely talked to you? You ignored me.” He stared at me. “Andy, I—“ “This is stupid. This whole thing is stupid.” I […]

Review Rating~ 4-4.25 Stars. So here we are, at the last book of the Guardians of eternity series (a spin-off is coming soon though 😀 Burned by Darkness ), I really have enjoyed the series a lot, some books more than others as is the nature of book series.

EXCERPT: Ravaged by Elisabeth Naughton

EXCERPT: Ravaged by Elisabeth Naughton

Excerpt “Better.” Sappheire, Athena’s right-hand Siren and the leader of Zeus’s female warrior army, nodded at Daphne’s side. “You keep practicing and you’ll get there.” Daphne wasn’t so sure. All Sirens went through rigorous training in a variety of different areas—combat, seduction, warfare, strategy—and she’d passed each section with high marks from her trainers. But she couldn’t take her final Siren vows until she conquered the marksmanship exam. And at the moment, her aim wasn’t even close to one-hundred percent, which was why she was out here now, on the training field behind Siren headquarters, working on her shot long after the other recruits […]

Short Review: Bear Attraction by Jennifer Ashely

Review I really enjoy this series, who doesn’t love a good shifter story? This is novella length book about Walker Danielson (Human, military liaison between the human Shifter Bureau and Shiftertown) and Rebecca (an alpha bear-shifter). Both the characters have been previously part of the other books in the series as secondary characters. Though it’s a novella we get to see their relationship develop and learn more about them as characters. I really liked them both, they were both head strong if a little stubborn at times but they respected and cared about each other . They also had great chemistry and really enjoyed teasing/annoying each […]

Excerpt: Risk it by Jennifer Chance.

Excerpt From the tousled curls of his jet-black hair, and his sculpted lips and cheekbones, to the drape of the One-Percenter suit beneath his gorgeous wool coat, everything about Rand Sterling Winston IV was icy perfection. Even the sidewalk salt on his shoes looked like decorator frosting. Still, Dani would bet serious money that the man’s veneer was as fake as her knockoff Blahniks, meticulously designed to hide his true colors. She didn’t know what danger lurked behind Winston’s aloof facade, but it snagged her attention, making it almost impossible for her to focus on anything else. The guy was like black ice, she […]
