Is it just me, or does anyone else feel bruised after reading Company novels? I loved James Fenici and Harper Tate and devoured that trilogy, but no other Company book has made me that hungry. Maybe it was because those were my introduction and now I’m like nine books in and it’s all WRONG, DIRTY, BAD–and not in a good or sexy way.
Pretty Nightmare is book two in the Creeping Beautiful series. Indie Anna Accorsi is the pretty nightmare of Core McKay and Adam Boucher, and the eternal mystery of Donovan Couture. Book one was the formative years, and book two is a collection of snapshots and flashbacks of epic events and occasions of importance leading to our ultimate series of reveals. And this time there are some real zingers.
Title: A Love Song for Rebels (Rivals #2) Author: Piper Lawson Genre: Contemporary Romance My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I told you last book–I told you!
I said to hold off calling Tyler a book boyfriend because he was still doing his certification courses, and this book is why. Welcome to A Love Song For Rebels, a place where Annie Jamieson and readers go to fall in love with a fully certified Book Boyfriend: Tyler Adams.
ALSFR is book two in a three-book series, so if you haven’t read book one, A Love Song for Liars, you shouldn’t be reading this review. Don’t pass go, don’t collect two-hundred dollars, do one-click book one, and start at the beginning.
A girl with the sight who knows not to tempt fae, a fae king cursed not to look like himself, an unachievable quest, and a fated love; Delia Castel has all the ingredients and whips up an excellent fantasy novel based on the Beauty and the Beast Fairy Tale.
Something you can be sure of is if there is trouble, there are fae. Neara keeps her head down because she can see the fiends, unlike the others of her village. Her father has instilled the importance of not bringing herself to their attention. She’s young and pretty, two things the fae like to collect and corrupt. So, over the years, he’s trained her into a warrior and taught her all the ways to fight the monsters.
Title: Valentine Pride: The Complete Series Author: Laura Greenwood & L.A. Boruff Genre: Paranormal, Shifter Romance My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This collection of novellas and extras are smile-worthy and steamy, with laugh-out-loud moments. If shifter tales are your cup of tea, this set is for you.
Cas, Levon, and Kerry together keep the Valentine Pride safe. The Pride is a gathering of shifters with Cas as their Alpha. Protecting and caring for their entire shifters is their purpose until Leola stumbles upon their territory and their cats go haywire–suddenly they only want their lovely mate and nothing more matters.
Tessa Dare is my ultimate book girlfriend. I met her once at an author and reader event and made a real dork of myself fangirling about her books as if she had never read them. I’m reasonably sure I didn’t have to supply the full name to my favorite hero of hers, Colin Sandhurst, but just in case. And now I have another book babe to gush and embarrass myself over should I ever reencounter Miss Dare, Mr. Gabriel Duke; the prickly industrialist who ruins the aristocracy just for the mighty pound sterling.
If you have encountered Tessa Dare in the past, you will know that she loves strong, sassy female characters who have keen minds and unique skills and talents. Penny is only a member of the ton the way a platypus is a duck, by some silly word association and familial rumor. Penny is far more likely to be seen with a platypus than she is in a ballroom.
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Neuroses. Vrinda Pendred has penned what is undoubtedly a controversial young adult narrative regarding a society built on its own mental unwellness. Welcome to Equilibria where your OCD is everyone’s primary concern.
Anna Nolon has many fears, but her most current are the empty chair next to her in Maths class and a chipped nail. While one of those is a quick fix, the other requires divine intervention for resolution, only what the Great Organiser delivers is a hot mess, in direct conflict with social norms. Anna isn’t sure if Aaron King is a hawk or a pig, but she wants to be a hawk with him.
