Review with Excerpt: Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter

Flame in the Dark was such a fun read for me! I love the paranormal investigation team PSYLed Unit 18 and in this story, they are back and in full swing. This story starts out smack dab in the middle of an investigation. There had just been a shooting at a senator’s house and Nell is cutting her teeth as a full-fledged probationary paranormal investigator. Nell is officially done with […]

Review: Tall, Dark & Deadly by Kharma Kelley

Tall, Dark & Deadly is the first book in the Agents of the Bureau series and it was a fun and sizzling read with a fast-paced plot. Chloë Hunter was a Dhampir, an unusual hybrid with all the strengths of a vampire but none of their weaknesses. For many years she had run with a bad crowd and had ended up on the wrong side of the law. After being […]

Review: Semi-Sane by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Sane is the fifth and final book in the Harper Hall Investigations series which has been an AMAZING series! I have completely adored each and every book in this series and Semi-Sane was no exception. In this installment, the focus is on Dr. Violet Marchand and bad boy Nikolai Aleyev. The story between these two characters was introduced in the previous book, Semi-Broken, and I would recommend that you read […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Twisted by Isabel Jordan

Yay that another installment in this series has entertained and endeared me to this series! The third in any series is usually a nice indicator of how a series is going to progress, and I was thrilled not to be bored or let down! With love, humor, romance, sexy times, and pregnancy hormones…how can this story go wrong? It did not! Back is my favorite cast of characters but the focus […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Human by Isabel Jordan

Ok, it needs to be said: I LOVE THIS BOOK! I laughed out loud so many times throughout this story! The main character Harper is just amazing to me. She is witty, sexy, and really feisty. She takes no crap from anyone and has no fear! I just love this character. A year has passed, Noah and Harper have become affianced and are heading to Las Vegas to elope. Anything […]

Review & Giveaway: Veiled by Stacey Rourke

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** At the start of Veiled I was curious how the main character, Vincenza Larow, was going to be forged into an unstoppable weapon. I liked that her metamorphosis was something that had already been in the making but that she essentially got the short straw because of the trauma that she endured. I also appreciated that for Vinx […]

Review: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones

My anticipation for The Trouble with Twelfth Grave was filled with excitement and a twinge of reluctance. I was expecting that once again Charley or Reyes would be holding back a big secret that, if only they had been honest with each other, would not have led to landing in hot water. Phewww, this story was really, really good! Love Charley, she is better than ever! As always, I love […]

Review: Gatekeepers by Sam Ferguson

Gatekeepers is the type of read that when you pick it up you find yourself caught up in the excitement until the end. I love reads that have creatures from other planets or dimensions and this story certainly delivered. Joshua Mills has had a rough go of things lately. After he was acquitted of patricide, had lost his wife and child to divorce, and was finally released from prison, all Joshua […]

Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]

Review: Denai Storm by Tiffany Shand

Denai Storm is the third book of the Excalibar Investigation Series. This story starts out with action and it continues at a fast paced up until the end. I really enjoyed that Cate’s character started out strong. Her husband had been gone too long, where diplomacy  failed Cate was going to fill that gap. I really liked the team of enforcers that Cate has assembled over the previous two books. […]

Review: Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats by Carla Rehse

I adored this book, adored it! Pink Lock Pick and Sequined Witch Hats was a charming read. When I first started reading this story I was not so sure about the main character, Gracie. Her character struck me as a shallow and self-absorbed main character. Now wait before you start rolling any eyes. There is more to this character and that is what made me absolutely love this story. Gracie […]

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net is about the “what if’s” regarding the internet. What if the internet could be utilized for truly evil purposes and possession? What if there was a demonic select that had a location on Earth, specifically Portland, that they used for their ritualistic reasons? What if they were tired of the status quo and hatched a plan for worldwide domination? If you ever considered any of those questions, […]

Mini-Review: One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews

What an AMAZING book!! Worth reading, worth reading many, many times. I have enjoyed this series installment the most so far. It was full of action and sci-fi goodness and I loved it. It was so great to have all the characters in this story as well as additional characters that we had heard of before but never met. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Dina’s sister and her niece.
