5bat! Review: Flight from Mayhem (Fly by Night #2) by Yasmine Galenorn

5bat! Review: Flight from Mayhem (Fly by Night #2) by Yasmine Galenorn

August 26, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

The Fly By Night series is quickly becoming one series I know I don’t want to miss. Though categorized as paranormal romance, FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM reads more like an urban fantasy with a romantic subplot, with the mystery taking center stage. The characters are really what shine, making FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM a super enjoyable read.

Review: Beauty and the Clockwork Beast (Steampunk Proper Romance #1) by Nancy Campbell Allen

Review: Beauty and the Clockwork Beast (Steampunk Proper Romance #1) by Nancy Campbell Allen

August 22, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

Anybody who has read this blog for any amount of time knows how much I am in love with fairy tale retellings. And my favorite are always Beauty and the Beast. So when BEAUTY AND THE CLOCKWORK BEAST showed up on Netgalley, I knew I had to read it! While I had some issues with the beginning of BEAUTY AND THE CLOCKWORK BEAST, it did manage to improve, and by the end of the book I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Review: Waking The Bear (Shifter Wars #1), by Kerry Adrienne

Review: Waking The Bear (Shifter Wars #1), by Kerry Adrienne

August 10, 2016 Review 2 ★★★

I tend to be a bit of a dork about puns and double-entendres, and WAKE THE BEAR definitely had funny moments that were a welcome respite from some of the dark characters. It was a bit short, and the main villain was one-dimensional to the point of being annoying, but the main characters were fun and their interactions were the glowing part of the novel.

Review: Bound by the Night by Megan Hart

Review: Bound by the Night by Megan Hart

August 1, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

Megan Hart has been a long time favorite for me in contemporary romance. Raw, visceral chemistry married to a realism that manages to intrigue and haunt. Seeing her name on a Paranormal Romance was an exciting treat, but I found that the realism Hart brings to romance did not carry over to believable “paranormal”.

Review: Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing (Billionaire Wolf #1), by Terry Spears

Review: Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing (Billionaire Wolf #1), by Terry Spears

July 8, 2016 Review 0 ★★

This book was almost entertaining, but between the blatant use of romance tropes and the saccharine quality of the plot with made my stomach turn, I was annoyed with it by the time I put it down. If this was the first paranormal romance book I’d ever read, I would have never picked up another.

Werewolves not necessary to this story, and it would have probably been an okay suspense romance without it – in fact, it probably would have been better for me. The key mythology issue was so badly introduced that I didn’t really understand any of the characters’ motivations for the first half of the book.

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

July 7, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

TRACE OF MAGIC has been on my list of books to read for quite awhile, and when it showed up on Audible a few months ago I finally picked it up and just recently got a chance to listen to it. TRACE OF MAGIC was much better than I expected it to be, and I wished I’d listened to it as soon as it came out on Audible.
