#COYER Blackout Wrap Up

Posted March 4, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review, Misc | 2 Comments

Anne’s Progress: I actually have a total of 34 books but some of the reviews won’t post until a later date.  The other books are:  Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs, White Hot by Ilona Andrews, Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti, Where The Wild Things Bite by Molly Harper,  Tarantula by Mark Dawson, and the book below, Vortex by Cherry Adair.   This is my final book for COYER Winter Storm and my third generator book so it is a library book. I’ve now worked my way to current in the Cutter Cay series.   Vortex is my favorite book so far in the series. I enjoy the ocean setting, the family connections, but so many people trying to kill for personal reasons is beyond belief. […]

  The paperback ARC came in the mail to me as a surprise. I’ve always wanted to read this author so I was happy to read it. This was quite fun. I am seeing more of the genre of fantasy romance. How does this differ from paranormal romance? Well, there are similarities but fantasy tends to include both historical and paranormal aspects. I don’t know if it is in most fantasy romance but in all the ones I have read the women are strong and brave, often functioning or even recognized as equals to their men. The Embraced are born on one of two nights per year when the two moons align.  These children have supernatural powers. The kings of the different lands don’t like […]

               This long running Bishop Special Crimes Unit series has what is actually my favorite paranormal types.  I often say it is witches (magic) as that is more typical. But what I really LOVE best is the talents of the mind – telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and the like. The stories of an FBI unit with these special abilities has truly been one of my favorites. The story arcs are written in trilogies mostly. Early in the series, I would have classified them as romantic suspense. More recently, while there may be relationships or romances between characters, it is barely mentioned. The focus now is the mystery and suspense. Each story is a case with a team. So instead of […]

Excerpt   Quinn had taken the floor for exactly the reasons she’d said, in addition to the knowledge that however little she liked to think it mattered, Marcus was ten years older than she was. And he was a secret stress case who carried all his tension in his back and shoul- ders. She should know, since she’d nearly sprained her thumbs trying to dig the knots out during a massage that had started out sexy and turned into a to-the-death battle between Quinn and the long muscles lining Marcus’s spine. Marcus didn’t need to screw up his back by lying on the floor for eight hours, was her point. Not that she would ever say that to him. She didn’t have a death wish. […]

Into the Fire felt more like a start to a new beginning than and ending… I am sorry to say that Into the Fire broke the 5 star record for the Night Prince series for me. Like other fans, I could not wait to get my hands on Vlad’s final book, but something was missing and I cannot put my finger on it. That’s not to say that Into the Fire was not enjoyable, it was. I think the wait and anticipation was too high so the ending of the series was a little anticlimactic. I wish I had taken the time to do a series reread because I went Into the Fire not remembering where we left off with the previous book, Bound by […]

        I’ve had Cecy Robson on my TBR ever since I meet her a few years ago at RT book con. She is so sweet and I’ve heard great things about her novels. So, I’m starting my reading experience with Robson with Crave Me, the third book in the O’Brien Family series. I know, I know the third book? I was assured that I could read Crave Me before, Once Kissed and Let Me and I agree that readers can easily start with Crave Me. After enjoying Wren’s story I’m going back to read her brother’s stories. The O’Brien family is made up of seven children and Wren is the only girl which means she is tough as nails. She has a mouth of a sailor but looks like a beauty queen […]

         Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.   Riptide is my second read in the Cutter Cay series.  I am reading the series in the lead up to the fourth book being released in March. The genre is romantic suspense which is one of my favorites. I did enjoy the mystery and action in Riptide.  Nick Cutter was interesting in his ability to read vocal accents and his government work. However, the billionaire guy with the gal down on her luck is a trope I hate. Nick seemed to think he should have sex with Bria because he’s attracted to her physically even though he sees her as […]
