I’m Just Getting Caught Up: A Review of The Beast by JR Ward

I’m Just Getting Caught Up: A Review of The Beast by JR Ward

5 Stars I am pretty sure that I’ll never get tired of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Except for a couple of books which I struggled through (Phury, I’m looking at you), JR Ward has consistently drawn me into her vampire world with characters that are as real to me as the folks next door. I love the way Ward deftly weaves the new with the old, like the world’s longest braid-the ‘do always beautiful, but the new pieces added in…

A Review of Christine Amsden’s Kaitlin’s Tale

A Review of Christine Amsden’s Kaitlin’s Tale

3 Stars As a rule, I don’t start a book series in the middle and while this, at the end of the day, is a well-written book, there’s nothing about the blurb for Kaitlin’s Tale that mentions it’s the sixth book in a series that began with the Cassie Scot books: Kaitlin Mayer is on the run from the father of her baby – a vampire who wants her to join him in deadly eternity. Terrified for her young son, she…

Can’t Get Enough of the BDB: Review of Blood Kiss by JR Ward

Can’t Get Enough of the BDB: Review of Blood Kiss by JR Ward

 BLOOD KISS by JR Ward 3.5 Stars   I enjoyed this first book in JR Ward’s Black Dagger Legacy series, but had hoped it would bring readers back to the early days of the BDB, where almost every page was dedicated to the couple falling in love. Sigh. Remember how amazing Dark Lover was? Unfortunately, the promoted romance fell a bit short for me, but overall the book is a keeper. Blood Kiss’s blurb is all about Paradise and Craeg,…

Catching up with the Black Dagger Brotherhood: My Review of The Shadows

Catching up with the Black Dagger Brotherhood: My Review of The Shadows

The Shadows by J.R. Ward My rating: 4 of 5 stars It seems as though no matter my feelings as I’m reading the latest installment of The Black Dagger Brotherhood series, at the end I’m perfectly happy. The Shadows is no different. To be honest, I started this one some time last year and then put it down. It wasn’t so much that I didn’t like it, I did. But, I had other books grabbing my attention and there was…

Today’s Review…Gilded Destiny by Nola Sarina

Today’s Review…Gilded Destiny by Nola Sarina

GILDED DESTINY  by Nola Sarina 4 Stars      Where do I start? Gilded Destiny, by Nola Sarina is unlike any romance novel I’ve read, though I suppose it could also be classified as Urban Fantasy. Either way, it’s an interesting book with a heated romance, vampires, danger, and love that surpasses memory and obligation. Callie is a tattoo artist with a short-term memory problem after an accident five years ago left her with apparent brain damage. She also doesn’t…

All Because of Vampires

All Because of Vampires

It’s been a crazy summer for me. My daughter graduated from college and my son got engaged. Some good news, some bad as personal demons are always waiting in the wings to make a good day miserable. One of the highlights of the summer was spending 4 days in the mountains of Idaho with three amazing women who I met through writing fan fiction. Yep, we met online (granted it was about 3 years ago) and having only met one…

What I’ve Been Reading Part 1

What I’ve Been Reading Part 1

Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram My rating: 4 of 5 stars Cinder & Ella, by Kelly Oram is a delightful take on the classic fairytale Cinderella. It has all the ingredients that make up a fun, easy read, while keeping to a strong plot line and avoiding the clichés one comes to expect from a fairytale redo. Set in briefly in Boston and mostly in L.A., our Cinderella is Ellamara, a beautiful, witty, clever young woman who meets her…
