Rain by India R. Adams

Rain by India R Adams

I have read several books by India Adams. My first book was actually a novella called Blue Waters from the Tainted Waters series. That book was just amazingly written and it just tore my heart out in all the best ways! I loved it so much that I had added it to my favorites shelf at Goodreads. India and I were chatting on Twitter and she gifted me any book that she had written! Why you ask? Well it was because I had one of her books on my favorite shelf. Any book I wanted people, I was like a Read More

Nobodys Hero by Bec McMaster

Nobody’s Hero by Bec McMaster

I received this book from Bec McMaster because I subscribe to her newsletter. What a phenomenal present for me because I am a huge fan of her work and I am grateful. I was introduced to her work with the book Kiss of Steel from the London Steampunk series. From the book forward I will absolutely read anything Bec McMaster. There are still several books that I haven’t read so maybe their reviews will make it to this blog. Nobody’s Hero is a post-apocalyptic story set in a world of drought-stricken wastelands in the year 2147. A meteor had crashed Read More

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

To say that I am a fan of the Mercy Thompson series is really an understatement. I have read every book and that actually makes me potentially a great critic. Where other series can start to get stale or predictable this series has remained strong! Silence Fallen steered away from the formula and gave us new features to look forward to in future installments. Fan-tast-ic! Mercy is back and this time she is not the one getting herself into a predicament. She was abducted as part of a power play that has many facets and is vague at best, in the Read More

Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan

The idea of a psychic and paranormal private investigator is what drew me to this story. It was the witty dialogue however that truly held my attention from the start. Snark and sarcasm will keep me entertained every time! I really enjoyed the banter between the main characters. Harper’s character was sassy, witty, and determined while Riddick’s character was brooding, tortured, and self-deprecating. The juxtaposition between these characters was just right! I adored this story! Harper had been in a working partnership with a slayer named Romeo. That is until he skipped town leaving her with a business that she Read More

Firestorm by Donna Grant

Firestorm by Donna Grant

Firestorm is the tenth book in the Dark Kings series. The story takes place in various areas of Scotland. It also means that most of the Kings including Dimitri speaks with a Scottish accent. It is verra, verra good and makes his character a bit more swoon-worthy. The Kings are dragons that existed on Earth before mankind and through poor judgement on their part swore to provide protection for humankind. I say poor judgement because the humans procreated and eventually turned against the dragons. I found that I was emotionally impacted in the scenes where I learned more of how the Read More

The Haunted Manor: Torn Between Power and Love by Emilia Hartley

The Haunted Manor: Torn Between Power and Love by Emilia Hartley

A love story that includes malevolent spirits, yes please! I was very interested in reading this book because I wanted to see how well the author could combine true paranormal and romance. For me it was a winner! My favorite part of this book were the angry spirits. The scenes with the spirits were a bit spooky. The writing was well done, I could feel their anger and imagine them trying to enter, rattling the door knobs and wreaking havoc. They were strong spirits born from a slaughter and they wanted what was theirs – the estate. Their attempts to Read More

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

An amazing young adult debut that had me on the edge of my seat! I wanted to read this story because the main character is a bounty hunter from a hell called the lowlands. That alone sounded so intriguing and I was thrilled when I got my hands on this book! From the start, I was into X’s character. He just came on the scene appearing so strong and confident but tortured and I wanted to know more! The scenes in this book were easy to visualize. The development of the lowlands was spectacular. The concept of how souls were Read More

It's You (book 2) by K.P. Kelley

It’s You Book Two by Katy Regnery

This review is on the second book from the It’s You duology. When books are sectioned into halves and you loved the first book you wonder if the second half will live up to your expectations. Yes! Yes! Yes! This book was everything I wanted and more. From start to finish it is a roller coaster of emotion, angst and desire. Where the first part of this duology was the building of the romance, the second part was where the action and angst prevailed! Jack has just come back in order to protect Darcy from a dangerous opponent. Unfortunately, Darcy Read More

It's You (book 1) by K.P. Kelley

It’s You by K.P. Kelley

  When I read the synopsis of this book it peaked my interest. Hmmm, words like kissed, intense, and passion in a synopsis of a paranormal romance will intrigue me almost every time. Then let’s throw in a secret that could “rip or bind” the main characters?? Oh yes, I must know more. I will admit I am a fan of paranormal romance and this synopsis was my siren. Addicting, romantic and touching! This was a wonderfully detailed love story that is tragically beautiful. I loved that it was written in third person omniscient (narrator knows thoughts and feelings of Read More

Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

This book did not start on a high note for me. I have read and reviewed the first book in the series and I loved it, adored it and still do. When I started this book, I was all sorts of excited to see how the story was going to continue. It starts off shortly after the conclusion of book one and the opening scene is Griffin throwing the biggest temper tantrum ever, what a turn off. The entire scene was supposed to demonstrate a misunderstanding and show how Cat had a negative view of things and that it influences Read More

Enchanting the Fey by Rebecca Bosevski

Enchanting the Fey by Rebecca Bosevski

Unique, filled with action and whimsical at times. This story is written in first person by the point of view of Desmoree, the main character. I was not the biggest fan of Des in the beginning. She was just cranky, dramatic and her use of foul language felt more as a “show” to back up her “I don’t take crap from anyone” attitude. It felt unnecessary and took away from her character. After she was knocked down a peg or two and put into situations where her mouth couldn’t solve her problems she became more likeable and started to develop. She still Read More

Hunt the Dawn by Abbie Roads

Hunt the Dawn by Abbie Roads

Dark, suspenseful and touching! A truly suspenseful read full of conflict and exquisite imagery! What I loved was the suspense mixed with a bunch of paranormal twists. You have murder victims reaching beyond the grave, Evanee Brown entering a dream state that allows gruesome items to travel from the afterlife, a crazy awesome healing connection between Evanee and Lathan, and unknown entities that are woven throughout the story. Just fantastic! In the beginning I did not enjoy the introduction to Lathan Montgomery’s “special abilities.” I felt that his ability was not written in a way that made it believable to Read More

Leopards Fury by Christine Feehan

Leopard’s Fury by Christine Feehan, Review with Excerpt

When I started this book I was instantly in love with the female protagonist Evangeline. She is written as a strong, independent, and intelligent character who has relied only upon herself and her leopard since childhood. She is just starting her business but is satisfied that she is making it on her own. The male protagonist is introduced right away and his profession is easily deduced. So there is no grand reveal about what he does as a living. More clarification that anything. The main plot in this story is that both Evangeline and Alonzo have experienced their own type Read More

Mind Waves by Amanda Uhl

Mind Waves by Amanda Uhl

“They walked in formation, each of the three men taking an outside stance with David on the inside. Guarding him was critical, so he could track the information they were after, while concealing their presence. Their job was to help him navigate the energy fields and fight off the mind’s natural defensive system, which operated similar to white blood cells attacking invading bacteria.” A team of mind hackers working together as a Mind Control Unit for the good of our country, I only wish this was a reality. Could you imagine how many lives could be saved if this was Read More

Omega Rising by Anna Kyle

Omega Rising by Anna Kyle

A truly inspired world development with such attention to the characters! Even the supporting characters were fleshed out and given a truly meaningful part. The story is about shape-shifters, referred to as Joined, and they come from all different walks of life and even religious practices. There are also witches, humans and fae in the mix. This is not just a simple boy meets girl fantasy. There is a complex, prophetic, and detailed story that has so many elements that all readers would find something memorable between its covers. Cass Nolan is the star of this book for me and Read More

Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads. The Genre Minx Book Reviews.

Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

This was one twisted and unexpected story. I could not make up my mind what genre that I would even classify this under. It was foul-mouthed, believably unbelievable and at times nauseating. I loved it! Xander Stone was struck by over 50,000 volts of electricity via a lightning strike and it did not kill him. Instead he has been “marked.” He has a phenomenon known as Lichtenberg figure all over his body. This is actually an existing phenomenon and you should look it up because it is very interesting. These keraunographic marks look like fern leaf patterns all over his Read More

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Ultimate urban fantasy series!! With every new installment the writing and the characters just improve, how is that even possible after nine books?? This book was very different than the rest though. Kate as we know her has changed fundamentally throughout this story and there has been shifts in the key powers that be. There are plenty of surprises and a few places where your heart will just crush upon itself. For any die-hard Kate Daniels fan it is a must read. I love where the relationship has gone with Curran and Kate. With just weeks to go from finally Read More

The Scarlet Tanager by Emigh Cannaday, The Genre Minx Book Reviews

The Scarlet Tanager by Emigh Cannaday

This book started off with deception, action, and a sinister villain. It then went for a ride into the realm of appalling. Honestly, poor Annika! Then with another twist to the story, past actions comes back to haunt Finn and confuse Annika. I guess some sleeping dogs just don’t lie. There has been some debate amongst fans as to what team they are on, Team Talvi or Team Finn. I want to be clear that I am definitely on Team Talvi! Until this installment I could have been on the fence between the two of them but now I am Read More

Dragons Against Them by Kyra Jacobs

Dragons Against Them by Kyra Jacobs

After reading the first book in this series, Dragons Among Them, I was eager to get my hands on the next installment as soon as possible and I was not disappointed! This story is mostly focused on Princess Rosalind and her deepest desire for revenge. Now, I was not in love with Rosalind from the last book but while reading this story I felt myself thawing towards her and in the end wanting only rainbows and unicorns for her. Back are Prince Zayne Godfrey and Adelaide Miller just weeks away from their wedding that will bridge the gap between their two Read More

The Silver Thread by Emigh Cannaday, The Genre Minx Book Reviews

The Silver Thread by Emigh Cannaday

This is the second book in The Annika Brisby series and I can say that I love this series! I went into this book expecting that the storyline would follow a predictable road given the cliffhanger from The Flame and the Arrow but this story was it’s own animal and was better than I ever expected! After being torn away from Eritahti, Talvi’s home world, through a portal Annika finds herself back on Earth trying to convince her friends and family that she was taken to another world and had a great adventure. They of course thought she was crazy Read More
