Oh SPI Files, how do I love you? Let me count the ways! You’ve got action to keep me occupied, sexual tension for me to swoon about, snappy dialogue to keep me laughing out loud and a cast of characters I can’t help but love. THE BRIMSTONE DECEPTION is no exception to the rule, and for me, is a perfect urban fantasy read.
While it didn’t live up completely to my expectations of a Sims book, BETWEEN A VAMP AND A HARD PLACE was an amusing romp through Europe with a modern-day heroine and a very old-fashioned hero. Obviously, conflicts abounded and BETWEEN A VAMP AND A HARD PLACE managed to keep my attention with one thing after another!
MANNERS & MUTINY is a wonderfully action packed and fun end to a very unique series. One thing I loved about this book was how it so neatly melds into the Parasol Protectorate series as a precursor to that series’ story.
When I closed this book I had to take some time to process my feeling on it before writing down my thoughts. I enjoy shifter romances and am typically able to reason with the aggressive and violent nature of the heroes due to their being half-animal. Sometimes the attitudes of the heroes can be a bit much and the sex a bit too domineering for my tastes but usually that’s balanced out with the heroine’s ability to stand up for herself and the hero’s ability to know when to calm down or back off.
ICE MOON is a fun paranormal romance with an interesting central story and conflict. While I was a bit annoyed/sad that Taryn wouldn’t even touch her son which probably isn’t going to be good for his emotional development in the future (in reality, I’m sure he’ll be fine in this series!), I liked seeing the reason behind her ‘no touching’ rule unravel as the story progressed.
CODE BLACK had a lot of things going for it, and luckily by the end it came together; it just took a while. When the story finally hit it’s stride though, it was a pretty wild ride.
The world of Rhiannon Held’s Silver series is seen through its characters, the shift of point of view is what paints mythology and plot.
As I’ve come to expect from this series there is no time for breathe in REAP THE WIND. Everything that could go wrong for Cassie goes wrong that I just want the girl to get a break eventually.
Nothing made me happier than having Dragos and Pia come back to the Elder Races series as main characters, but these fantastic little short stories are a close second.
I’ve been having a hard time with Molly Harper lately. After THE DANGERS OF DATING A REBOUND VAMPIRE didn’t live up to my expectations, I was really hoping for THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOMS CLUB to rekindle my love. Unfortunately, THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOMS CLUB fell completely flat for me, in both the romance and the plot aspects.
