God Is Able by Priscilla Shirer

When I finished Beth Moore’s A Heart Like His bible study I knew without a shadow of a doubt, although I did try to come up with other suggestions, that God is Able would be the next bible study I would do. I was hesitant because I didn’t think that learning how God is able was something I needed (shows how much I know), but at the same time I knew I needed something less invasive and intense as A Heart Like His was. As I was trudging along in God is Able I found myself immersed in its pages. The tone and message that Priscilla Shirer wove throughout God is Able was so real and relatable that I found myself able to visualize all that she was trying to get across to her readers clearly in my own life. My issue with God is Able came from the lack of […]

Down Shift by K. Bromberg

If I remember correctly I read the first book of the Driven series and enjoyed it enough that I played with the idea of continuing on in the series but it just never happened. When Down Shift became available to read and review for RT Book Reviews I thought it would be the perfect chance to dive back into this series. Sadly I just couldn’t latch onto Down Shift’s story so when it became available to listen and review I had hoped that things would’ve work out better. The story of Down Shift started in a way that had me interested, in other words it was a good start, but then the story shifted in a way that gave the story a different feel and I no longer wanted to stay on the ride. The narrators Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell did an amazing job on Down Shift and they […]

Fury by Laurann Dohner

I will not say that I had high hopes for Fury because I really didn’t know what to expect with its story. It’s one thing to read the synopsis and reviews and assume but its quite another to actually read the story and experience it yourself. I was expecting to fall in love with this new paranormal world that Laurann Dohner created and to see if I would enjoy it as much as I did her Claws and Fangs series. . With the way Fury started off I was pretty confident that its story was going to stay with me and hold my attention all the way through. It was shortly after the first reunion scene, as intense as it was, that I felt a shift in the story take place. With the character revelations we were being shown I knew that this shift wasn’t going to turn the story in a […]

What A Dragon Should Know by G.A. Aiken

What A Dragon Should Know was so unexpectedly amazing I seriously don’t know what to do with myself! Never would I have thought that Gwenvael’s story would be the one that would entertain me on all cylinders. In the previous stories from the Dragon Kin series Gwenvael was a character that I just didn’t take that seriously because of his jokester attitude and nonchalant ways. Even though I didn’t give much head space to Gwenvael something always told me to watch out for him when it came time for his own story. Even with that warning I never could’ve imagined his story unfolding like What A Dragon Should Know did. What A Dragon Should Know gave new life to the Dragon Kin series (I’ll probably be saying that with each book because G.A. Aiken’s writing is superb, I saw that under her other pen name Shelly Laurenston). From the birth […]

Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up The Moon by Richard Roberts

When I requested to listen to Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon I was hoping for and envisioned a story that would be funny and light and it makes me so glad to say that’s exactly what I got. What made Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon even more of a treat was the excellence and uniqueness of the word that Richard Roberts built within this series. Half of my delight of this audiobook definitely goes to the author, duh, but the other half most definitely needs to go to Emily Woo Zeller for the fantastic job she did narrating Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon. I knew as soon as the book started that I was seriously going to like this story. Zeller’s narrating brought this story to life in a way I don’t think another narrator […]

Viking by Jenika Snow

Ugh! These synopsis to Jenika Snow’s books are so enticing! The synopsis of Viking had everything I love about an insta love story and a historical romance, when I read the synopsis I was done for. Sadly, even with my intentions and hopes of really liking the story of Viking things just didn’t work out that way. As I was reading Viking things just weren’t adding up. What I mean is that when something would be said it would later have been changed further into the story. Maybe I’m mistaken or maybe I just wasn’t following the story closely enough but my confusion radar was pinging all over the place. Since Viking is the their A Real Men book I’ve read by Snow I feel that what I’m about to say has been well researched. From these stories there seems to be a template or formula used in their creation where if x […]

Feral by Jenika Snow

Again, like Riding Her Rough, the synopsis of Feral grabbed me and made it necessary to read its story. I was confused though on what I wanted to rate Feral because of the mixture of feelings I had towards its story, but hopefully through this review I can organize my thoughts and see exactly where on the totem pole of ratings Feral falls under. When Feral first started I was intrigued because of the mystery surrounding Dillon. The shunning of the townspeople towards Dillon left me wanting to know more about him and somewhat more about his history with the town. Dillon’s character was almost perfect, and I say almost because some of his dialogue was unnecessary and over the top even for an over the top alpha. All-in-all Jenika Snow did an amazing job of engaging my curiosity and then answering the questions I had pertaining to Dillon. The attraction between […]

Shade by Jamie Begley

I just want to clarify before I begin telling you my thoughts on Shade by stating that anything I say past this statement will never do this book justice, I truly believe there aren’t any words in any language to accurately state how magnificent this book was. As soon as I got wind that Jamie Begley was coming out with another book featuring Shade and Lilly, with it being in Shade’s point of view, having those private moments we didn’t get to see in the previous books, and also the continuation of their story after Cash’s Fight, I knew that this book would freaking break me. I knew no matter how Jamie did the story I was going to be changed forever, and I was right. As I am writing this review a day after it was released and approximately five minutes after finishing Shade I want to crawl back into […]

Lucky’s Choice by Jamie Begley

I knew that as soon as I read the prologue that I was going to need to write a review of Lucky’s Choice. Maybe I should’ve known sooner since I’ve been waiting for Lucky’s book since Razor’s Ride. To be honest the ‘when’ of knowing I would needs to speak about my thoughts on this book, is not so much important as the ‘why.’ What was it about Lucky’s Choice that impacted me so much that I had to put my thoughts on paper and computer screens? Outside of Shade, Lucky was the most mysterious brother of the Last Riders that I have been chomping at the bit to know more about. Clues were dropped here and there but never so much that we got a look into the inner working of who he was. Willa on the other hand was practically an open book with her transparency. She wore […]

Riding Her Rough by Jenika Snow

In reading the synopsis of Riding Her Rough I knew that I needed to read its story. It’s been so long since I’ve read a romance with an alpha male so I figured I was due. It also didn’t hurt that the cover looked freaking awesome either. The tension between Delilah and Torque was off the wall steamy. Something about a forbidden romance just ramps up the angst in any story, and with Torque being the dominant male that he was it was super delicious to see how he restrained himself from going after something that he wanted. Delilah on the other hand was so ballsy but shy in certain ways that her character was easier to relate to than the other heroine’s I’ve read about both in this genre and of this same length. Both of these characters apart and together were so likable that that alone was what endeared […]
