Review: Wildfire – Ilona Andrews

Review: Wildfire – Ilona Andrews

Wildfire took me on a journey that was extremely fast-paced, filled with action, betrayal, romance, intrigue and a complicated plot. So well done! What else can I say about Wildfire? The character development is awesome. The universe is completely set up. I love Rogan. I also love Nevada. And Nevada’s family. I love all the magic! And the intrigue. As well as the fight scenes. And the action, too. Now this sounds like a poem. But I’m no poet, am I? Wildfire is fast-paced. And it’s so well done! The storyline attractive, and I just want more. Small secrets were revealed. Some big ones as well. And review still sounds like a poem. So I’ll just go with it, then. […]

Review: White Hot – Ilona Andrews

Review: White Hot – Ilona Andrews

White Hot brought some more explanations about the Hidden Legacy universe, and I got to know Nevada, Rogan, and the other characters better. The pace is fast, and there is so much going on. I’m in a magic-induced nirvana right now. I don’t know how the Andrews do it, but White Hot was actually even better than Burn for Me! The character development was awesome, and so was the overall storyline, with parts continuing from the last books, and many new happenings as well. The political intrigue was still going on, and the magic used to undermine the different houses was amazing. Not going to say too much about White Hot, as I don’t want to spoil anything – just […]

Review: Worth the Wait – Lori Foster

Review: Worth the Wait – Lori Foster

Worth the Wait bears its title very well! I loved this story, even though it followed one main couple, plus another couple who got less time allotted to them. The writing is so good, and there’s some well-timed suspense as well as the romance. Hogan had been through the wringer more than once, and Worth the Wait was really about how he was worth waiting for. Violet was attracted to Hogan, but she didn’t want to be just another notch on his bedpost. I was intrigued by Hogan when I first met him in Don’t Tempt Me, and his story was really good. He had quite a bit of thinking through his past to do, before he could completely open […]

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Oh my goodness! Rogan and Nevada are both characters I became slightly obsessed with at the beginning of Burn for Me, and now, I just know that I have to figure out what is up next. Ilona Andrews did it again – a complete winner! There is something special with stories including magic. When those stories are written by Ilona Andrews, there is even more that is special about them! Burn for Me is a prime example of their excellent writing, world building, character development, story arc, plot and general awesomeness. I don’t really know what more to say than that – it was as close to perfection as the written word can possibly be. Rogan and Nevada are very […]

Review: Jilted – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Jilted – Sawyer Bennett

Jilted was a feel-good romance, second-chance-at love story that had lots of obstacles in the way for the two main characters. Bennett really has a way to reign in her readers, and that’s exactly what happened when I started reading Jilted! Both Eden and Coop were great characters, which made understanding where Coop was coming from in the beginning a bit easier to deal with. And everyone who has ever chatte books with me know that second chance at love is one of my all time favorite tropes! Eden and Coop had both been through their personal hell, but meeting up again didn’t exactly make things any easier for either of them. Jilted starts with Eden finding out that her […]

Review: Under Fire – Scarlett Cole

Review: Under Fire – Scarlett Cole

Under Fire pushed all the right buttons, romance, characters and character development, pace, action, suspense, plot and story. I loved every single thing about this story! Cole has definitely outdone herself with Under Fire! I was mesmerized from start to finish, and the action started basically on the first page. All buttons to make this a favorite read were ticked, and I almost didn’t manage to sleep because I’d rather spend my time with Louisa, Six and the guys from Eagle Security. It was a fast-paced story, with a lot of danger, but Louisa’s logical mind as well as Six’s strength and ability to get a good overview kept things on the right side of safe most of the time. […]

Review: Lethal Lies – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Lethal Lies – Rebecca Zanetti

Lethal Lies is fast paced, filled with danger and delicious romance, even with a serial killer on the loose who will stop at nothing. Lethal Lies is filled with action, romance, secrets, and lies. It’s a fast-paced adventure with ties to both the past and the future. I somehow read this before the first book in the series, but I still loved the story, the characters and the plot – that’s testament to how good it was. Zanetti’s world is a dangerous place, where the mysteries of the past try to catch up with the blood brothers in the present. I love this whole universe, because Zanetti always manages to keep the world building on point, and the characters that […]

Review: Sisters of Blood and Spirit – Kady Cross

Review: Sisters of Blood and Spirit – Kady Cross

Sisters of Blood and Spirit was both creepy at times and a bit sad, but more than that, it was a story about loyalty between sisters, no matter that one was dead and the other alive. And I’m kicking myself for not starting this book earlier There was a lot of action packed into the pages of Sisters of Blood and Spirit, and it was really good, too. Lark has a strong bond to her still-born sister, Wren, who lives as much in the real world as in the shadowlands. So much so that she was sent to a mental hospital for hearing voices – when all that happened was that she answered out loud when her sister was talking to […]

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

Built was a very emotional story, and my heart broke for Sayer more than once. Zeb was there to pick up the pieces and help her build a new one, though. Built definitely got to me, because Zeb and Sayer – while seemingly so different from each other – were very similar when it came to the truly important things in their lives. Sayer, holding on to control of every aspect of her life tried her best to resist, but Zeb was too persistent. Zeb was also reliable, strong and loyal and so very lovable. The whole Saints of Denver series worked well for me, and Built was one of the reasons why. The overall story, the side characters, the […]

#Review: Leveled – Jay Crownover

#Review: Leveled – Jay Crownover

Leveled has me questioning why I haven’t read a Crownover series before now! I was enchanted, and she now has a new fan! Lando and Dom were both characters that made me feel, and their development through this story was truly well done. I read Leveled as part of my Can You Read a Series in a Month challenge, and I have read all the Saints of Denver series in June. I enjoyed the characters, the story, the secrets, and also the very strong sense of family and friendship. Dom and Lando both thought they weren’t deserving of love and a real relationship. Until there was no way for either of them to resist any longer. Lando lived with a […]
