Review: Energized (Tidewater #3) by Mary Behre

Review: Energized (Tidewater #3) by Mary Behre

August 13, 2015 Review 1

ENERGIZED is a well paced romantic thriller with just enough twists and supernatural flair to make it stand out.

Romantic thrillers are typically pretty formulaic. He has a military background and problems expressing his feelings. She has a shady past or a dark secret. They typically have sex super early on, then meet up again later on and it’s a bit awkward but sparks fly. ENERGIZED manages to hit all those bases, but has enough original additions that helped me devour it.

Review: Frozen in Amber by Phillis Ames

August 6, 2015 Review 0

FROZEN IN AMBER is part legal drama, and part were-cougar coming of age story, with a little bit of family craziness and gene-splicing mixed in. But if you add in very few moments of levity and what felt like an artificially drawn-out plot, and you have an interesting book that misses the mark by just a bit. And then there is the end, which I had to read twice to make sure I actually got.

Review: Wolf Trouble (SWAT #2) by Paige Tyler

Review: Wolf Trouble (SWAT #2) by Paige Tyler

August 4, 2015 Review 0

The first book of the SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series was fun, but WOLF TROUBLE, featuring two werewolves instead of a werewolf man with a human female, was even better.
The Dallas SWAT has been hand-picked from different law enforcement and military backgrounds, but they all have something in common: they all survived something a normal person wouldn’t, and started sprouting teeth and fur soon afterward. Werewolves in this world are triggered by a life-threatening injury in a person with the right genetic disposition.

Review: Baby’s Got Bite (Take It Like A Vamp #2) by Candace Havens

July 27, 2015 Review 0

I love paranormal romance books that don’t take themselves too seriously. I always find that it’s easier to get through a book when I am laughing, and BABY’S GOT BITE had plenty of humour and ridiculous situations in it while still managing to have believable characters and truly emotional scenes.

I tend to like my books quite spicy – and I used to think the more sex the better. Well, I’ve been proven wrong, and in a werewolf novel to boot. Although the sex scenes in BRIDGED BY LOVE were well written, I really could have done with way less of them. By the end of the book, I was skipping pages of erections and orgasms – more story, please!

5Bat! Review: Castle Hangnail by Ursula Vernon

5Bat! Review: Castle Hangnail by Ursula Vernon

July 17, 2015 Review 0

This is a fabulous story with fabulous characters. Molly, the “Wicked Witch” who comes to Castle Hangnail to govern it, is smart and ready to face the difficult tasks ahead – most important of which is getting the minions on her side!

Whether it’s the minotaur cook in the kitchen who hates anything to do with the letter Q, a stitched together (more than once) majordomo or the pin cushion doll with a hypochondriac goldfish, Vernon makes every secondary character interesting.

Review: Supervillains Anonymous (Superheroes Anonymous #2) by Lexie Dunne

July 2, 2015 Review 0

This book was entertaining, but it ran out of steam somewhere around the middle. The story picks up exactly where the first one left off, to the point where I feel that SUPERVILLAINS ANONYMOUS should have just been included in the first book, Superheroes Anonymous. I would have rather read the whole story in one go and saved myself some confusion.

Review: Fandemic (Bigtime #5) by Jennifer Estep

Review: Fandemic (Bigtime #5) by Jennifer Estep

I tend to read KARMA GIRL, the first book in the Bigtime series, two to three times a year. It’s that good. FANDEMIC is an entertaining addition to the series without being overly repetitive.

FANDEMIC looks at the inevitable fan clubs that exist in a world where superheroes and supervilains are rampant; think Comic-con, but for real.
