I’m going to go ahead and say it and I know I will get a few things thrown at me but I liked Roman more than Raphael. I hope that he gets his own book. Yes, yes, Raphael is sexy and I like him with Andrea better but I want to find out more about Roman. Ok, so Gunmetal Magic is a spin-off of Kate Daniels series, set in the same world. Much like what Jeaniene Frost did with her Night Huntress series. It can be read as a stand alone if you have not read the KD series but I highly recommend reading it if you have not. You will get some background on the Andrea and the world if you do. Gunmetal Magic […]

Even though I am not a huge YA reader I do enjoy one from time to time and since I love Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson adult series I knew I had to give Death and the Girl Next Door a try. For me the 1st quarter of the book moved a little slow but then things started picking up for me when the plot started to get more detailed and action packed. There was a really cool action scene between two of the guys where time kind of freezes around them. It was awesome. I could see it all in my head like I was there and I thought this would blow the Matrix away if it was on the big screen. The humor is […]


Audio Review: My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

Audio Review: My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

 The cover art and title sucked me in but Angel keep me listening. The moment she said “But then again, I was about as far from touchy-feely as you could get. Unless you’re fucking me, don’t put your hands on me.” I knew we were soul mates. Angel is a great character, she is full of snark and dieing really was the best thing that happened to her. My Life as a White Trash Zombie is my 1st book to read where the main character is a zombie. And like many creatures, each author puts their own spin on them. Rowland’s version of zombies is a like a cross between a vampire and the movie Death Becomes Her, where Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn keep […]

Guest Post + Giveaway with Claire Ashgrove

  Good morning, readers! Thanks for hosting me today. I thought I’d give you a little more insight into Noelle today, by sharing a page out of her hypothetical journal. She’s not really a journal kinda girl, except when it comes to research, but… well… let’s see how that research is working out for her. I’ve been here now, several days, and as much as I hate to admit it, the people are kind of growing on me. It’s hard to think they are all really nuts, when they seem so very sane. Today I was confronted by another unexplainable event. Isotopes that shouldn’t exist. Chemical compounds that weren’t introduced to the Middle East until many hundreds of years later…I’m particularly curious, but I can’t […]


Audio Review: Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep

Audio Review: Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep

  Wow. Any book that starts with the heroine stabbing someone in the balls is a book for me! Spider’s Bite starts with a thrill ride that you find yourself riding throughout the whole book. Like all great roll coasters, there are not just ups and downs but there are a few loopy-de-loops and twists and turns just like the plot of this excellent Urban Fantasy tale that Estep was crafted. If you are a fan of the Urban Fantasy genre then you know that they can be dark and gritty, some more than others. Spider’s Bite is very dark with a high body count but it also has a little something for the smexy fans as well. Estep has done an awesome job in […]


Run the Risk by Lori Foster

Run the Risk by Lori Foster

Posted September 27, 2012 by Jonetta in Book Review | 0 Comments

The beginning of this story is its weakest as we are barely introduced to the main characters and the focus is on Logan trying to get close to Pepper. We have no idea why she’s being sheltered by her brother or the details of her personal story. It’s obvious that she’s hiding behind a frumpy disguise and her initial relationship with Logan is bizarre. It would be okay if this aspect of the story moved at a quicker pace but it took much too long to develop. But, if you can make it through this tedium, the story then shifts into gear at almost breakneck speed and really delivers! As if being undercover isn’t stressful enough, Logan also has to contend with departmental corruption and […]
