Steamy reads with a dollop of magic, mystery and hot... hot men
A great story and characters will suck me in every time, no matter the genre. But I do have a weakness for PNR, SF, UF and I'll melt completely if you throw in some humour and a breathless romance.
Midnight's Kiss (A Novel of the Elder Races)
After the HORRENDOUS Night's Honor (book number 7 in this series), I was more than a little hesitant to read Midnight's Kiss. And nor did the cover overly inspire me - for s...
The Better Part of Darkness
Am so tired of these types of books. Described as gritty - it would have been more appropriate to term this novel as grim. Likewise the h - supposedly edgy, driven, capable ...
3.5 star read. On the whole I enjoyed the book but found all the horse descriptions/focus kind of dull. I ended up skimming these pasts, which is never a good sign.Still, An...
Forged by Desire
This book really peeved me - now I haven't read any of the earlier books in the series and maybe that's where the disconnect is, but considering some of my problems with the b...
Enjoyed this tale, though identified the bad guy almost from the start. I like Anna and Charles as a couple. He's protective and so very old, and his love for Anna is both a...
Personal (Jack Reacher, #19)
Forget the average movie -starring Tom Cruise - I have.I like the Jack Reacher novels for several reasons. Sure they are formulaic, sure most of the set ups are two steps bey...
Trust No One
This was a solid 3 rating read for me.It was like old times for JAK, suspense, no magic, and all about the romance. Overall the story was well written and advanced at a nice ...
Light My Fire
The couple in this take a backseat to the story -as a heap of familiar characters also get mentioned and involved in the action - which was very good. As I didn't really rel...
Jason (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter)
LKH finally went and done it - shed all pretence of plot and just wrote a book about sex - people doing it, people talking about it, people planning on doing it again.So for o...
Blood of Eden
The rear cover blurb for Blood of Eden sounds promising; genius Sloan Skye gets an intern job with the new paranormal unit of the FBI. Unfortunately the reality of this book i...
An excellent premise is let down by a poor storyline and two very annoying leads. Sophie Lawson has almost no likeable qualities, she spends all her time making up stories in ...
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Such a distinctive voice as an author, beyond funny and one of the first authors that showed me that humour and excellent writing/story telling did not have to be mutually exc...
Put a fork in me - I'm done with this series. I liked (but never loved the first few books) - but I saw real promise in the series/concept/main character but I've come to rea...
I love Shelly Laurenston... but honestly this is a bit of a dud.Let's take a step back - Hunting Season, a book previously published by Shelly was set in the same Crows/Raven ...
This was a solid 3.5 rating - the extra .5 is awarded because the Aeslin mice feature so predominantly. HAIL.I'm still not sold on Alex as a lead character - though I did pre...
