Some paranormal romance characters are so flat that it’s hard to believe their evolution, but in MAGE OF INCONVENIENCE, the heroes are perfectly imperfect; they’re from different sides of the track, but the compromises they make to make their union work feels genuine.
Honestly, I was sold on INKMISTRESS before I read it. Everything about the description of the book led me to believe I was going to love it, and it certainly did not disappoint. INKMISTRESS is an amazing tale of love and betrayal, of magic and secrets and I loved it.
THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE is an excellent follow up to THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC. With high school drama and first love, this reads like a young adult contemporary romance at times. With excellent characters and exciting paranormal aspects, THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE is a perfect read if you’re looking for something light with a bit of a fantasy vibe.
TESS OF THE ROAD is a return to the world of Rachel Hartman’s previous books, SERAPHINA and SHADOW SCALE, two books I absolutely loved. With the combo of the beautiful cover art, and the promise of more like SERAPHINA, I dove right in to TESS OF THE ROAD. All in all, however, I’m not sure it stands up to Hartman’s previous work, and I was a bit disappointed.
THE MYTH MANIFESTATION is exactly what one would expect from Lisa Shearin and the SPI Files series. It’s got our sassy-as-ever Mac, action packed scenes with creepy creatures, and general all around humor and fun. Plus, this book opens the door for even more crossover between Shearin’s SPI Files and Raine Benares series.
PRIDE AND PROMETHEUS is not only a clever, thought-provoking mash-up between two beloved stories -Frankenstein and Pride and Prejudice – it expertly captures the tone and themes of each book. There is such an excellent balance between Gothic Horror and Regency Romance.
The Invisible Library series consistently provides an entertaining and enjoyable reading experience. I love Irene and Kai, and I love the concept of the Library. While THE LOST PLOT felt like a side quest to the main, overarching plot of the series (no super evil librarians in sight here, or questions answered from previous books), it was still a great deal of fun to read.
DANGEROUS MATING is sort of like the “Goldilocks” of paranormal romances. It’s not too dark, serious, and complex but also not super light, fluffy, and silly. It’s just right in the middle which is great to have in a genre. The plot is fast-paced and action-packed- filled with moments that keep you constantly on the edge of your seat yet infused with enough levity that things never get too dark.
BABY, I’M HOWLING FOR YOU was a fun, action-packed paranormal romance which tick off all of the paranormal romance tropes in an entirely entertaining way. It had tons of twists and plot points that I thoroughly enjoyed and really didn’t see coming which I am always appreciative of.
BEARING HIS SINS by Eve Langlais
This one was my not too good rated story, where I lost interest towards the end and had to force myself to finish it just so I didn’t have to label it a DNF. My main issue was Cole.
