Audio Review: Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper

Molly Harper never fails to bring the snark and a pinch of sexy to her loveable characters. So I was excited to jump into another light and fun read with Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors. Jane and the group are back for another fun-filled mystery. This time around Jane is dealing with her own wedding planning issues, more dead relatives, and being a new mother so to speak. Seems that someone always wants to kill or at least maim Jane. And she usually makes things worse by running off by herself to solve the mystery of who it is. But this time Jane is showing her maturity by letting her friends do the heavy lifting in the department of who wants Jane dead. Jane […]

It’s been a while since I’ve stayed up to midnight to finish a book!!Sacrificial Magic (SM), the 4th book in Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts Series and it’s her best book to date. Cepts, Nips and Panda’s, OH MY. These are all Chess’s drugs of choice, plus the occasional trip the pipe room. Yes, the series about a drug addicted heroine named Chess Putnman that’s a witch investigator that debunks ghost haunting for the Church. But don’t let the drug addiction turn you off. Chess has had a very hard and abusive childhood being passed around different foster homes where the dads and sometime moms have used her as their form of entertainment. Chess at heart is a survivor with very low self-esteems issues. She uses […]

My review of Drink Deep will be very short. Why? It’s a hard review to write without a MAJOR spoiler. So here we go. If you read the last book, Hard Bitten then you know the love/hate of the plot and the cliffhanger. I won’t say more for spoiler reasons. And with all that went on in HB I was nervous about reading Drink Deep so I put it off for a few months thinking that I would read it right before the next book, Biting Cold comes out in August. But I was in a reading funk and decided that Neill would be the perfect author to get me out of that funk. And I was right. Because Hard Bitten was such an awesome […]


Audio Review: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

Audio Review: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

This series is set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson Series, but on a slightly earlier time line. It begins with a novella titled Alpha and Omega published in the On the Prowl anthology. The decision to continue the story was made after the anthology had already been published, which has caused some confusion, since “book 1” is an actually a continuation of the short story. The series has plenty of action, but there’s more emphasis on the romantic attraction between the hero and heroine. On a romance-readers scale, this series is sweet rather than steamy. I highly recommend reading the novella Alpha and Omega before reading Cry Wolf. You will get a better feel for Anna’s character and why hers and Charles’ relationship is […]


Review: Caressed by Night by Amanda J. Greene

Review: Caressed by Night by Amanda J. Greene

  I truly enjoyed the first book in the Rulers of Darkness series, Caressed by Moonlight.  So I jumped at the chance to be apart of Ms. Greene’s blog tour for the second book. Caressed by Night has a different feel to it since it is set in modern times in Las Vegas verses Caressed by Moonlight‘s 1800s, London setting. But it has all the same hotness. And you get to see a little of Dorian and Victoria from Caressed by Moonlight which I really liked getting a update on where they are at in their lives. OK, so Caressed by Night is about yet another hot vamp named  Dimitri  that has been in hiding for about 400 years; waiting for the right time to return to the vampire world. […]

BRAVO!!! Kane has done it again. Each book replaces the last as my favorite in the series. Kane’s cast of misfits is back in City of Ghosts. Chess is still working for the Church as a debunker and yes she still has her drug addiction. Terrible is still the best anti-hero EVER! We even get to see some of Lex and Bump in this installment. “Most Debunkers spent their money on actual things, rather than just buying anything they could swallow, smoke or snort. Unlike Chess.” Just when I thought that Unholy Magic was an emotional ride, here comes City of Ghosts to continue ripping my heart out. I feel like I’m on Chess’ pills with all the highs and lows that the two go […]

Kate and the gang are back and it’s bloodier than ever with the war between magic and tech in full swing. Kate really tests her magical power in Magic Slays. You thought she was bad ass before? She is only getting better with each book. “Hell was driving a blood-soaked van listening to two children dying in the backseat, while Grendel whined as if something were killing him.” What would Kate Daniels’ book be without blood, gore and someone trying to kill her? Please that’s just another Tuesday for Kate. Kate is dealing with a lot of changes in her personal and professional life. She is no longer working for The Order; she and Andrea open up a P.I. business together. Then there’s the whole learning […]

Seriously, if you have not started this series get off your butt and do it! FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. This is the going to be a hard review for me to write without spilling the whole story. UGH it was so awesomely heart breaking. I rarely give a book 5 stars but I had to give this that extra star that the first book, Unholy Ghosts, didn’t get. The reason for the extra star? Because of the emotional tug of war I had while reading it. I love Chess, I hate Chess, I want to slap her, I want to be her (minus the drug addiction). There was so many up and down moments between Chess and Terrible in this one that I was wore out after listening […]
