REVIEW: Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

REVIEW: Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

Posted September 13, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 2 Comments

  I was first attracted to Drink, Slay, Love because of the lovely cover (yes, I know don’t judge a book by its cover) and then I read the synopsis and was even more intrigued by the were-unicorn idea. I thought now there’s a were I’ve not heard of before; so I had to try it. I devoured this book in about two nights; long late nights because I grabbed it from Simon & Schuster Galley Grab and let it set on my Nook for too long and only had 3 days to read it before it expired. I got to the middle of it yesterday and thought OMG I have to finish this book. I needed to know what happened to Pearl so I […]


Review: One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost

Review: One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost

Posted September 8, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 2 Comments

I have been looking forward to reading One Grave at a Time ever since I finished This Side of the Grave. I am an enormous fan of The Night Huntress series. I have a love/hate relationship with Cat; I love her because she is one of the most kick ass heroines I’ve ever read but I hate that she gets to have wild monkey sex with Bones. {runs to grab my copy of One Foot in the Grave to re-read Chapter 32} One Grave at a Time picks up where This Side of the Grave ended. So we get to see Justina, Tate and Don, of course. A plot line gets started with the old team that doesn’t get wrapped up but I’m sure we […]


Audio Review: Undead and Undermined by MaryJanice Davidson

Audio Review: Undead and Undermined by MaryJanice Davidson

I am so done with this series. You would think after 10 books Betsy’s character would have grown. WRONG. She is still the same dumb, shallow blonde stereo type; which was fun for the first few books but it’s gotten old and on my nerves. Undead and Undermined picks up where Undead and Unfinished left off. Betsy is trying to come to grip with the new time she returned to; after timing traveling with her sister Laura. Against advance, Betsy changed a few times in the past before coming back to the present and now she can see the error of her ways but as usual it’s too late. Betsy is not the typical heroine. Most of the time she is the reason the day […]


Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

One word for Shade; AMAZING. I have found another favorite author in Ms. Jeri Smith-Ready. Shade is my first ghost story and I love the concept behind it. All the people (sixteen and under) that was born after a date and time are called Post-Shifters and they can see and talk to ghosts. Although most of the time they do not want to. Aura loses her boyfriend Logan, when he makes a stupid decision that takes his life. Now he is haunting her and they can’t let each other go. That’s when a sexy Scottish student named Zach enters the picture and a love triangle begins. But Zach has a few secrets. Throughout Shade, Aura and Logan has a tug of war with their love […]


Audio Review: Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

Audio Review: Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

Posted August 19, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 1 Comment

  I really enjoyed listening to Incarceron and after its cliffhanger ending, I knew my next audio book would be Sapphique. Sapphique picks up a few months after Incarceron ends. We get to see what happens to Finn after he escapes Incarceron; but is the grass really greener on the other side? I believe that is the main theme throughout series. While Incarceron is told through Finn and Claudia’s point of view, Sapphique is told through multiple points of views. Which makes sense since half of the characters are on the inside of and the other half on the outside of Incareron. Sapphique and Incarceron are not light reads and I would recommend that you read them and not do the audio book if you […]

I love The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and I’ve been on the hunt for another Dystopian book. So I put Incareron on my TBR list. Then last week I ran across it on CD in the library and check it out. I was half through listening to Incarceron and I felt like I had missed some important information and was lost on some of the plot so I started over and there was still a few times I was a little confused about some of the characters. I don’t know if it was because I was listening to it while I was working and just tuning out from time to time or if it was how the book was written. Things that really bugged […]


MINI – REVIEW: Conrad’s First Girl by Varian Krylov

Posted July 27, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 0 Comments

Conrad’s First Girlby Varian Krylov Conrad has planned an abduction, but before he can execute his perfect crime, he needs a little practice bending reluctant virgins to his will. Enter Elsie, Conrad’s first girl. A prequel to Varian Krylov’s bestselling “ABDUCTION!” REVIEW:Conrad’s First Girl is nothing but a hot teaser. Conrad meets Elsie in a coffee shop and asks for her phone number. Elsie being a “plain Jane” can’t understand why a hot guy like Conrad would talk to her let alone call her for a date. Expecting a kiss at the end of their first date, Elsie gets more than she bargained for. Conrad’s First Girl is a short erotic read with a lot of hot fore play and not much of anything else. If […]


Review: The Paladin by Ken Newman

Review: The Paladin by Ken Newman

Posted July 25, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 5 Comments

The Paladin by Ken Newman was a nice change of reading pace for me (meaning no smut LOL). How can you not like a book with a fallen angel named Larry?! Ok so Larry recruits Harry Smith, a kindergarten teacher, to help him with his fight against evil. Harry has an unhealthy obsession with a book character named the Blue Fox (don’t we all have that obsession with a character?). Harry dreams of having an action filled life-like the Blue Fox and when she meets her new student, Larry Angel, she gets her wish. After passing Larry’s test, Harry is transformed into Maggie Black. Maggie (aka Harry) is a kick ass chick that swings a bad ass sword named Kali. That’s right the sword has […]
