I read the first book in this series, Fly With Me, in two sittings.  Luckily, I had won a copy of Into the Blue in a giveaway so I was able to dive right into this book.  I have to say I devoured this book.  I had both books read in one weekend.  I am now in so much like with these fighter pilots now, it’s not even funny!!!   Into the Blue stars Eric, Noah’s friend from Fly With Me.  Eric and the rest of the squadron are still rolling from the events that took place at the end… Read more »

I really liked this book.   I started this book not knowing what to expect but from the page I was hooked.  It was sexy as all get out.  But, it had depth too.   That makes Fly With Me my favorite kind of romance.   I really liked this story about a whirlwind romance and deciding if you can make it work for love.       The thing I liked most about this book is that it doesn’t glamorize what being a military wife, fiancée, or girlfriend is all about.   It is not a 24hr fantasy staring a hot guy in… Read more »

[Review] Steel World by B. V. Larson

Steel World is the first in the Undying Mercenaries series, and why are they called the undying mercenaries? Quite simple actually, because as long as they can be confirmed dead, and their files are on record, they can be revived / cloned / reconstructed, whatever word you choose for the process. All this is because Earth only has one trade good to sell to the galactic empire, the lives of its warriors. The universe in which Steel World takes place is interesting, and the main characters catch your attention. The story is highly believable, another race tries to prove they… Read more »

[Review] Koban: Rise of the Kobani by Stephen W. Bennett

The first book of the Koban series caught my attention. This second installment kept it and held me tightly to the story universe as it drove deeper into the characters. This third installment has me begging for even more. This book picks up not long after the events in the second book. The Kobani with their pirated alien ships are about to introduce themselves back into the human worlds and demonstrate what they can do to win the war against the alien invaders. Along the way they face a multitude of challenges and gain some allies, both human and alien…. Read more »

I was both excited and regretful to read this book. Excited because I have loved this series from the beginning. Regretful because this is the final installment of the Black Tide Rising Series. Over the series I have come to enjoy following the adventures of Steven “Wolf” Smith and his family as they lead the effort to restore civilization after a “zombie” apocalypse. And the family hi-jinx continue in this latest book, complete with dealing with idiots who think the rules of the pre-plague world still exist. I won’t give away any spoilers here, but I will say John Ringo… Read more »

The refugees left behind on Koban to die are flourishing. With the aid of their genetic enhancements and good old human known how they are settling a death world of giant insects, vicious beasts, and heavy gravity. For those left behind and their next generations of children, life is good. Back in human territory the Krall have begun their invasion which they plan will take 1,000 years to destroy the 700+ human worlds. But they fail to observe the obvious, we humans stopped fighting wars because we were too damn good at it. I love sci-fi military fiction, and this… Read more »

[ARC Review] Hard to Come By by Laura Kaye

I know I have said this before but I have become a big fan of the Hard Ink series. I like that each book focuses on one guy in the team but is just a piece in the overall story line of the series. In Hard to Come By the focus is Marz. I have liked Marz since the first book because he is easy going guy that will lay down his life to protect the ones he loves. I also like Marz because I don’t know while he can get emotional there is nothing emo about him. Plus, I… Read more »

[Review] Kildar by John Ringo

As I read through Kildar I was glad to find it was far more along the lines of what I was expecting compared to the first book in the series, Ghost. Mike Harmon, aka Ghost is trying to escape his past of battling terrorists by touring the cold regions of Georgia, Ukraine, and Russia. Getting lost is a blizzard he soon finds himself in the secluded valley of the keldara. These people have odd traditions, act like they are still in the dark ages, and yet have been recognized as warriors extraordinaire in times past. I was drawn in by… Read more »

[ARC Review] Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

I ended up really liking this book. I am all about books that promote girl power.     I have these read these types of books before about the tough as nails girl going to military academy and having to prove she can keep up with the boys. Don’t get me wrong, I these types books are awesome because girls can do whatever they set their minds too. What set Rites of Passage apart was that isn’t what just a girl proving herself in the face of bullies; but a girl caught up in a mystery that could bring down… Read more »

[Review] Ghost by John Ringo

Alright, I’m going to start off with I like John Ringo’s writing. His military-thriller with a mix of sci-fi thrown in. And this book starts off strong with a worn hero, damsels in distress, and terrorists in serious need of killing. The hero isn’t superman, and needs rescuing himself with the aid of the US military to extract the surviving hostages. But, this just made the book feel more real to me and kept me on the edge of my seat. However, in the second of the three sections of this book I felt he lost touch with the whole… Read more »
