The Devil’s Cut by J.R. Ward

As much as I was anticipating The Devil’s Cut I have to admit that I wasn’t as blown away by it as I was towards the first two installments in J.R. Ward’s Bourbon King series. In actuality my feeling towards this installment had nothing to do with Edward ending up with Sutton instead of Shelby, it was actually the length in which everything was carried out. From The Bourbon Kings to The Angels’ Share things have been building up to what I had hoped would’ve been an explosive conclusion to a wholly unique and attention grabbing series. What I wasn’t expecting was the long periods of each of the main characters lives. Other than the big reveal of who actually killed papa Baldwine and the mystery surrounding Edward I felt like we were given more of the same. Now this is where things get tricky…everything I just said are my […]

Erasing Hell by Francis Chan

Erasing Hell by Francis Chan

Before reading Erasing Hell by Francis Chan I can honestly say that other than the one Christian living book that I read when I first became a Christian, can’t really remember the name of its title, I have never been challenged and really given a uncompromising view of Jesus’ truth and the stark reminder of why He died for our sins. There were so many times I wanted to put Erasing Hell down because the perspective and truths were too raw and hard to receive, which is definitely a turn around from Chan’s Forgotten God and Crazy Love. Sometimes we as Christians would love to brush hell and all that is attached to its existence to the VERY back of our minds. It’s not ideal because it contributes to a separation from the Lord and His teaching and truths revealed in His word. As Christian’s I hope we all know […]

Soul Of A Man by Jamie Begley

Soul Of A Man by Jamie Begley

I’ve had Soul of a Man by Jamie Begley on my kindle shelves for I don’t know how long. I know it’s not reflected on my blog but I am a HUGE Begley fan, other than the remaining two stories in this particular series I have every book she’s ever written. With me turning to the ending if Soul of Man though I’m really kicking myself in the butt for waiting so long, but who knows I might’ve not appreciated its story if I would’ve dived into it as soon as I bought it way back when. In my opinion Begley is famous for her MC and rock star series (VIP Room, The Last Riders MC, Biker Bitches, and Predators), so when I found out about her fantasy series I will admit that I was highly skeptical because usually authors, that I have encountered, have a hard time transitioning into […]

The Charmer by Autumn Dawn

The Charmer by Autumn Dawn

It looks like I’m revisiting all of my favorites, and The Charmer by Autumn Dawn has definitely made that list. Before I even knew what goodreads or paranormal romance was I was hooked into this series by Autumn Dawn. All it took was for me to read The Charmer and I knew that I would binge this entire series, or what I could get my hands on at the time. I don’t know if it was the unique world that Dawn created that hooked me in or maybe it was the uniqueness of her characters, but I’ve re-read The Charmer more times than I can remember. The relationship and battle of wills between Kelior and Jasmine should go down in history as the best I’ve ever read lol. Unlike the other women Kelior had encountered Jasmine didn’t fall at his feet in admiration or lust, which played a huge factor […]

Reaper’s Legacy by Joanna Wylde

Reaper’s Legacy by Joanna Wylde

I can’t believe that I loved Reaper’s Legacy more than Reaper’s Property when I first read them. If it wasn’t Sophie getting on my nerves, then it was the cat and mouse game that Ruger and Sophie played with each other. I must need my head checked out because despite these irritants I really ended up loving the overall story of Reaper’s Legacy. Immediately, as Reaper’s Legacy began you are hip to the tension and agitation that both Ruger and Sophie have for each other, but underneath all of that is the sexual tension that is the timeless pull between these two. I adored the fact that there was a kid mixed in with this story simply because it brings about an entirely new level to all characters involved, if that makes sense. I loved how both Sophie and Ruger loved Noah and the lengths they were willing to go […]

Breaching The Contract by Chantal Fernando

Breaching The Contract by Chantal Fernando

It has been a minute since I’ve read a Chantal Fernando story, and I loved that Breaching The Contract welcomed me back. Even though I enjoyed the heck out of Tristian and Kat’s story, every time Houston would step on the scene I would become distracted. It’s bad I know but the tattoos got to me! Anyway, for Breaching The Contract being on the shorter side it was a well-rounded story. For a second there I couldn’t see how Fernando was going to spin this romance and then BAM it was on, hot and heavy. I wasn’t 100% a fan of how quickly Tristian and Kat jumped in bed together but something was going to have to take place next for these two to progress pass their cat and mouse game. After Breaching The Contract got over this hurdle the rest of the story was smooth sailing from there…well until […]

Reaper’s Property by Joanna Wylde

Reaper’s Property by Joanna Wylde

I know that when I first read Reaper’s Property I didn’t like it, I can’t pinpoint what it was about that first read but I really couldn’t stand Marie or Horse’s character. I think at the time I was immersed in the romance MC world so the naïveté that Marie showed and the frustration that everyone, from Horse to Picnic expressed towards her, rubbed me the wrong way. I felt that Marie should’ve pulled an Ana (from FSOG) and started googling ‘Motorcycle Club,’ and that Horse & co. should’ve been more understanding. Now, reading Reaper’s Property for the second time all the way through, well except for a few lines where I felt the descriptions were a little long, I really enjoyed myself. I was able to look at these two opposites with new eyes and appreciate everything they had to offer to this story by Joanna Wylde. Since I […]

The Angels’ Share by J.R. Ward

The Angels’ Share by J.R. Ward

When I first started The Angels’ Share I was so unsure about how good it was going to be in comparison to The Bourbon Kings, but by the end I was sold. I’m still jumbled and unsure about my feelings about this read, but bear with me. So, after that bombshell that was left at the end of The Bourbon Kings I was ready for things to pick up from there into The Angels’ Share. It did in a sense, but more was revealed leading up to it which I appreciated because it gave a glimpse into where everyone’s mindframe and current circumstances stood. Plus, the reveal of Daddy Bradford’s finger wasn’t nothing compared to finding out who actually killed him, even though I’m iffy about believing who the “murderer” was revealed to be. In this installment of J.R. Ward’s The Bourbon Kings series, there was a lot of romance […]

The Wardrobe Mistress by Meghan Masterson

The Wardrobe Mistress by Meghan Masterson

I will admit that I was skeptical about my chances of liking The Wardrobe Mistress, but I really fell for the spy, suspense, and romantic elements within its story. Early on Meghan Masterson introduced some of the main players, Marie Antoinette and her outspoken wardrobe mistress, Giselle. So the players and the playing field, or the political smoldering fire that’s waiting to erupt in France, had been laid out. At this point I wanted to be was all in, but the disconnect I had with Giselle’s character, with quite a few characters, throughout The Wardrobe Mistress held me back. It seemed like all the attention was placed on the events taking place and the political games being played that I found myself not really caring about Giselle’s character, but I for some reason instantly connected with Leon. Leon really fit into all the chaos that was going on. In scenes […]

Feversong by Karen Marie Moning

Feversong by Karen Marie Moning

Finally! With Feversong we are finally finished with the Mac and Barrons’ never ending stories. Although, I felt that in quite a few spots within Feversong there were filler moments, and regardless of that I have to admit that its overall story was quite enjoyable, even heart wrenching in places. With that said, I also felt that the way the big event played out was a serious cop out. The way things should’ve went was very believable but the actual events left me confused on everything I had been learning and preparing myself for up until that point. I might read the rest of the books dealing with the Fever series, from the library of course, off the strength of Dani/Jada. I seriously hope that her and Rhyodan’s story isn’t filled with unnecessary angst that was introduced in parts of Feversong. I hope they also learn from Mac and Barrons’ […]
