Review: The Girl Who Never Was (Otherworld #1) by Skylar Dorset

Review: The Girl Who Never Was (Otherworld #1) by Skylar Dorset

June 6, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

Where to start? I’ve been staring at a blinking cursor for a few minutes now, trying to figure out how to put THE GIRL WHO NEVER WAS into some sort of coherent thought, but it’s not easy. It’s a pretty good parallel, now that I think about it, because that’s what I felt the entire time reading it.

Review: Shield of Winter (Psy-Changling, #13) by Nalini Singh

Review: Shield of Winter (Psy-Changling, #13) by Nalini Singh

June 5, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

So much of my time spent reading SHIELD OF WINTER was dedicated to worrying whether such a broken person could actually function somewhat normally.When the reveal of just how much torture and pain he endured at such a young age to become an elite Arrow I seriously doubted he could pull himself from the darkness.

Review: Aces Wild (Sin City Collectors) by Amanda Carlson

Review: Aces Wild (Sin City Collectors) by Amanda Carlson

June 3, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

ACES WILD is, in my opinion, a perfect start to the new Sin City Collectors series, which features an interesting premise in that the installments will be written by different authors. Since I already like Amanda Carlson’s other series, I was excited to see what she would bring to a totally different setting and characters. I was not disappointed. Though short, ACES WILD manages to pack in action and romance and enough of a hook to bring me back for the next story.

Release Day Review: Grim Shadows (Roaring Twenties #2) by Jenn Bennett

Release Day Review: Grim Shadows (Roaring Twenties #2) by Jenn Bennett

June 3, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

While naming this series the Roaring Twenties certainly has historical precedent, there is an argument to be made for “the Steamy Twenties”. Amid the magic and intrigue, Bennett creates two nuanced and well developed characters who chase treasure, test wits, and generate enough sexual heat to curl this book’s pages.

Review: Banishing the Dark (Arcadia Bell #4) by Jenn Bennett

Review: Banishing the Dark (Arcadia Bell #4) by Jenn Bennett

June 2, 2014 Review 6 ★★★★

Finishing a beloved series is always difficult, but Jenn Bennett ended the Arcadia Bell series with as much chemistry, adventure, and love as the strongest of its predecessors. In BANISHING THE DARK, readers have a chance to revisit and enjoy the relationships and characters that made us fall in love in the first place.

Review: The Dark World (Dark World #1) by Cara Lynn Shultz

Review: The Dark World (Dark World #1) by Cara Lynn Shultz

May 30, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

For the first few chapters, THE DARK WORLD by Cara Lynn Shultz couldn’t hold my attention. I found the start of the book clunky, over-flowing with adverbs and unnecessary speech tags. The author wastes paragraphs on everyone’s hair, but skips over important emotional moments, like when Dottie the ghost girl tells the main character she killed herself because she was a pregnant teen in the ‘50s. Even the action scenes felt flat. Then Logan Bradley appeared, and the book got a new life.

Review: The Lost (The Lost #1) by Sarah Beth Durst

Review: The Lost (The Lost #1) by Sarah Beth Durst

May 29, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

From an initial, chilling fall into darkness, Sarah Beth Durst brings hope and magic to a horrific, almost apocalyptic landscape. Don’t pick up this book unless you have time to make it through at least the first half of Lauren’s journey, as her grief and circumstances will make it painful to leave her until she finds her footing.
