BLADE BOUND was a solid end to the thrilling and action filled Chicagoland Vampires series. It had everything you have come to expect from this series, from humor, Merit’s love of all of the food (there is an amazing moment involving chocolate that I want to experience myself), drama, cool fight scenes, to demonstrating the true strength of the bonds of love and friendship.

I know I don’t need to say that I love fairytale retellings, but there it is. I said it. And having read (and enjoyed) Cross’s work before, I was very curious about THE BLACK LILY and the direction she would go. It ended up being quite a fun read, with plot twists, steamy romance and a mystery to keep me entertained.
The Others is one of my favorite urban fantasy series. I love The Others so much because it is almost a purely character driven story. There is still a great over arching plot to the whole series, but what keeps me turning the pages are the characters. ETCHED IN BONE continues that tradition and develops the characters even more than before.
SOULJACKER is a fun and at times dark paranormal romance novel. Obviously since the main character is a succubus, this book has a lot of sex since Lily needs it to survive.
IMMORTAL UNCHAINED is the twenty-fifth book in the Argeneau series, and I’m sad to say it is the last one I will read. It wasn’t so much that it was bad, but it was so similar to so many other things that have happened in previous books that I felt I was reading the same passages over and over again. Although the 23rd book had me excited for the new direction the series was taking, when we got there, it wasn’t worth it.
If you enjoy sexy fluff with characters who make you fall in love with them, THE GEEK JOB is perfect for you. The characters are instantly likeable, even when they’re bad, and their relationship, although initially built on falsehood, is fun to read about and believable. I find this book is nearly addictive – I’ve managed to read it twice in the last year alone.
HISSES & HONEY finds the fun that was so vital to the first novel. After the getting her divorce and besting Theseus on live TV, Alena has taken a large step forward for supernaturals. Human’s respect her, even treat her like a celebrity. But even then, Alena just can’t win. She gets her bakery but loses her man.

A few days after finishing WYNTER’S BITE, I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it. In the past, I’ve enjoyed the Scandals With Bite series quite a bit, but WYNTER’S BITE didn’t have the same feel as the previous books in the series, and I didn’t like it as much.
