Walking Back To Georgia by Sasha Marshall

If y’all follow my reviews then you’ll know how I feel about this author’s work. Each reaction for each book is pretty much the same…mind absolutely blown, Walking Back to Georgia falling into the same category. The shock mostly comes from the fact that books that feature rockstars are not really my forte but I find myself never saying no to Sasha Marshall’s books. I would love her forever if she takes a chance on some Paranormal Romance books (crossing my fingers in hope that she will know that read this and grant my wish). While I was both scared and exhilarated to read Walking Back To Georgia, I was also stumped as to the possible avenues that this book could progress this series. If you’ve read about Henley since book 1, Guitar Face, then you know all the highs and lows that she’s faced and endured to get to where we find […]

Where Is the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series Going?!

There’s been a lot of talk and shared thoughts about J.R. Ward’s The Shadows, book 13 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. While I haven’t read it, and I probably never will, I can completely relate to the feelings some the readers had after they finished The Shadows. After I finished The King I felt in my heart that I was pretty much done with The Black Dagger Brotherhood, which sadden me because these books were one of the first adult paranormal romance series that I’ve read and loved. I do not condone telling an author how to write their story or what mold I feel they should stick to, because I’m not the one behind their computers or notebooks pouring my imagination into words. I do feel that as the author you should want to maintain that world and the basis in which you create your series. If you […]

Raze by Tillie Cole

Oh my freaking goodness!!! Why-o-why did Raze have to end?! I think in all honesty I can say that this book has topped my favorite for this year. There is nothing that I could find wrong with this book, this book gripped me and didn’t let go, not that I wanted it to. Usually when a frequent author of mine comes out with new material I am apprehensive about reading it, all it takes is for that book to be bad in my eyes and that author has been ruined for me (sad but true). That fear took a break or just knew that it better not mess with Tillie Cole when she writes and publishes something. As I was reading all I could think to myself is, “Tillie Cole I seriously do not understand how the heck you’re able to produce these amazing and groundbreaking stories!” I knew Raze was […]

Arrow’s Hell by Chantal Fernando

Arrow’s Hell has been one of my most anticipated reads of 2015. Dragon’s Lair was one of the best MC books that I have read, and Arrow’s Hell continued that trend. Thank you, thank you, thank you Chantal Fernando for doing Arrow’s story right. I couldn’t ask for a better lover for Arrow, a better friend for Faye, a better sister for Rake, and a better friend for Tracker in Anna. Anna (our heroine) didn’t try to fill Mary’s shoes, which I am glad for because Mary was such a special character and it broke my heart that her time with the Wind Dragons was so short. I loved that Anna knew her own mind, knew what she wanted in a man and out of life. Even when she didn’t fully understand the MC lifestyle she had a strong enough character to stand on her own two feet and take […]

His by Aubrey Dark

His was like a guilty pleasure for me. Never does someone want to contemplate ever falling for a serial killer no matter how attractive, so this story was all about the ‘what if’ factor. My first induction into dark romance came by reading Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters, so my expectations for these type of books are extremely high. A lot have fallen short on this mark, but His by Aubrey Dark meets this mark and then some. If she did nothing but one thing for me with this book was to forever solidify my love for the truly screwed and twistedness of dark romance. It’s the taboo of the mind. This story was completely devoid of clichéd emotions from either Gav or Kat, you could literally feel the rawness of their emotions. Aubrey Dark (I love her last name) created such complex characters (which is a must for any […]

God Save the Queen by Kate Locke

I was really intrigued and excited about the action and character interactions in God Save the Queen. This book contained so many angles and shock factors that it was an easy choice to go and pick up its sequel and concluding book from my local library ebook collection (thank goodness for those). In none of the books that I have read has there ever been a book like God Save the Queen. This book was so complex in its characters makeup that if you are not truly interested in the story a lot of what’s going on will be missed or misunderstood. At the beginning, actually in the very first chapter, the explanation for ‘how’ the goblins, vampires, halvies, and werewolves came to be was very clear, but amongst that explanation and the situation that Alexandra was going through sort of put me in an information overload. One of the […]

There’s No Crying In Rock-n-Roll by Sasha Marshall

There’s No Crying in Rock-n-Roll is the long awaited sequel to Guitar Face and it’s finally here!!!!! I will begin by saying that this has been my most anticipated book since the release of Guitar Face. Like, There’s No Crying In Rock-n-Roll, has been on my mind probably more so than any other book around this time. I desperately want to go through each and every chapter and explain this story’s magnificence, but then that would make this review even longer than I believe it will be. What I will say is that when (not if) you plan to read this please have finger foods handy (you won’t want to waste the time making anything that requires preparation), and you have a box of tissues or maybe a hanky readily available. The latter you will need in both for your tears of anguish and sorrow as you go along the second half of Henley’s journey, […]

Just A Reader Obsessed with An Author Named Kristen Ashley

  At first I felt silly for even thinking of doing a post like this but, being who I am I realized that doing silly things is norm for me lol. This post came to mind as I was reading Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley (my first paperback by Kristen Ashley!!!) or, KA, as some of her readers like to call her. I got to thinking as I was having my mind blown…again, that I need to talk about this obsession/appreciation that I have for her books. Every time (every time) I read a Kristen Ashely book I am blown away in some way. I honestly don’t want to say that I have a Kristen Ashely obsession because I don’t believe that I do (I guess my denial is the first step in claiming that maybe it’s true that I’m obsessed) but, whenever I need a book that will speak […]

Caressed By Ice by Nalini Singh

It’s getting to the point where I’m finding it hard to figure out which book I love more. At first I thought that Slave to Sensation was my favorite, and then Vision of Heat came along. When I thought that book would be my favorite I then read Caressed by Ice, so now I am unsure as to which of the books that I have read so far in this Psy/Changeling series I love most. Judd was one sexy mama-jama. I can completely relate as to why Brenna felt like she would combust anytime he was around! This book, I believe, sets the stage for the inevitable war against the Psy Council that has been brewing since book one. The main obstacle between the Dark River and Snow Dancer Changeling packs has just been resolved and it goes by the name of Judd Lauren. I knew that Judd was at the top somewhere on the […]

Dirty Bad Wrong by Jade West

Have a therapist on call since this was so dirty, bad, and wrong!!!! In certain parts of Dirty Bad Wrong, I found myself putting down my reading device to gain whatever courage I could find to continue, because this book pushed past a lot of boundaries that I wasn’t aware I had. I say that because I am a huge Pepper Winters fan so I had thought that I had read all that dark romance had to offer me. How misguided and naive was I?! Dirty, Bad, Wrong was so…goodness I don’t think there are words to describe exactly what this book was. The writing was superb, such a clear picture was given about each and every scene that you begin to question your sanity to even continue reading this book. Did I ever contemplate putting the book down for good? Heck no! I love reading books that challenge my […]
