Can, I just after finishing this book I was like, WOW!  I think I liked White Hot even better than Burn For Me and that is saying something since I loved Burn For Me.  This series has it all: hot sexy fun times, action galore, and an intense mystery that just keeps bigger and bigger. I love a book that can make feel so many feels.  White Hot definitely kept me on the edge my seat.  One minute I was swooning and the next I was biting my nails.  White Hot was fabulous I could not put it down and… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

I tried to read this book several times and just never could get into it. I mean I really tried. I feel like I have been reading this book for forever. I felt like if I could just get into then I wouldn’t have to DNF it so I put it on the back burner for a while. So, I decided to go ahead and use an audible credit and give The Shadow Queen another chance. I can say I am proud of myself for finishing The Shadow Queen this time. This audiobook felt like it took forever to get… Read more »

[Review] Liar’s Blade

This book took me a while to get through, not because it was bad, but it started off very slow for me and life kept taking me away from it. However, once I got past the first few chapters the adventure started to pick up. How long did it take to read I can hear you asking, sadly far too long as this was handed to me by the publisher at BEA some time ago. The main characters are the rouge Rodrick and his sword, Hrym. How can a sword be a character, well when it talks, schemes with his… Read more »

I don’t know why this book took me so long to read.  I think it was because I was going through a bit of slump last month.   When I saw My Lady Jane was out on audiobook I decided to use my audible credit and give it a go.  I can honestly the audiobook did not disappoint.  I ended absolutely loving this book.  I listened to My Lady Jane in the car and in my office at work.  I know there were times people were staring at me because I could not stop laughing.  This book was so funny there… Read more »

[ARC Review] Nightstruck by Jenna Black

Nightstruck starts out really really creepy and that insidious feeling never lets go the whole way through. Imagine a place where inanimate objects can come alive and murder people on the streets. Imagine a dark magic that can infect people to the point they are killing each other on the streets. I really liked this book because parts of it made the hair on my arm stand up.   This review will be very short and sweet because I don’t want to give too much away. I think the best part of experience reading Nightstruck was that didn’t know too… Read more »

[ARC Review] Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep

Over the years I have become a big Jennifer Estep fan. I love her Spider Elemental series. I love to read Young Adult novels as well. It seemed like a perfect match when Jennifer Estep’s Cold Burn of Magic the first book in the Black Blade series came out. I liked the first book it did a good of job of setting the story up and still that keeping that urban fantasy feel. If it is possible I liked Dark Heart of Magic even more, the second book in the Black Blade series. I like Jennifer Estep’s urban fantasy books,… Read more »

I didn’t gobble this book up in one sitting like I thought I would but slowly savored it over a few days. Why? Because I never wanted to let go of the story. I think this book is my favorite of the series. I liked the first three books but they were about spoiled, naïve, and broody kids that had still had a lot of growing up to do. This book is about change. Not just change in the direction of the of the overall story but change with the characters themselves. I loved that this book above all the… Read more »

[ARC Review] Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson

Sometimes I am in the mood for some light and entertaining reading. Rebel Mechanics fulfilled my wishes in that regard. I started this book at work and had it read by the time I went to bed that night. I am giving Rebel Mechanics four stars because I really liked the world of magic and mechanics. It was a quick, fun and very entertaining read. Rebel Mechanics is set in the year 1888 in New York City. This is not the New York City one would know from the history books. America is still a colony of the British Empire,… Read more »

[Arc Review] Grave Matters by Lauren M. Roy

Overall this entire review contains spoilers. It contains spoilers for book one, and spoilers for this book. Read at your own caution.  You know, honestly, Ace/Roc was awesome enough to, even though I didn’t make it on their street team, give me an ARC anyway. This happened to be the one they gave me. Woohoo, free books! I even picked up the first one and read it straight through. Unfortunately, I didn’t like this one as much as the first. Sure, all the characters are there doing the exact same things I enjoyed about them in the first place, but… Read more »

Oh, my goodness. I’m so glad that I got this from First Reads. I rolled around on the floor for awhile and then found that their download site was all broken. But everything worked out in the end, because I still got a hold of this beauty and let me tell you, it was such a good read. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it certainly lives up to the hype. There is so much happening in this book. There are elements of magic, desertion, usurping, spying, cults, mythical creatures and pretty much anything else you can think… Read more »
