5 Reasons to read Dark Debt by Chloe Neill

5 Reasons to read Dark Debt by Chloe Neill

        5 Reasons to read Dark Debt by Chloe Neill 1. Classic Chicagoland! I felt like Dark Debt was a return to the earlier feel of the series, which made me so happy. The relationships between some of the characters (like Merit and Mallory, Mallory and Ethan, Catcher and Mallory) have been strained lately it made me happy and hopeful to see those relationships back on track. The gang is feeling more like a family again. 2. Secondary Characters One character I was surprised to see a lot of was Morgan. I see Morgan like Tate from the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. Yeah he can be an asshat most of the time but under all that he is a good […]


Chloe Neill Still Serving Up the Goods in Blood Games

Chloe Neill Still Serving Up the Goods in Blood Games

Posted August 28, 2014 by Jennifer in Book Review | 5 Comments

I had a dual experience with BLOOD GAMES. I recently had LASIK (laser eye surgery) and I couldn’t read for a few days but I really wanted to dig into BLOOD GAMES. I’ve never listen to the series on audio but when I saw that Tantor.com was having a 50% off sale I grabbed the audio copy of BLOOD GAMES for the low price of $9. I figured if I didn’t care for the narrator I could always switch to my print copy that the publisher sent me. And that’s what I did. I started out listening to BLOOD GAMES and for the most part the narration wasn’t bad but I didn’t care for Sophie Eastlake (Narrator) male voices. They all sounded like 70-year-old men. […]

This is the 9th book in a series so there could be some series spoilers ahead. Chloe Neill continues to deliver a hard-hitting heroine with just the right amount of snark and a junk food obsession that I can get behind.   I’ve been on the Chicagoland Vampire roller coaster ride since picking up book one, Some Girls Bite back in 2009. I forget that Merit has only been a vampire for about 10 months. Boy has it been one hell of a year for her. She’s turned from college student to vampire over night. Meet, hated, loved, lost and been reunited her main squeeze, Ethan. Become the Sentinel for Cadogan House. Saved the world a few times, even from her BFF. Oh is now a member of a […]

Look for my review of WILD THINGS on Friday! Q&A with Chloe Hi Chloe! It’s great to you back at The Book Nympho and I can’t wait to see you at the signing on Saturday. Thanks, Jennifer! You’ve said book #13 will be the last of the Chicagoland Vampires. Are you already thinking about your next series? Possible spinoff? I’ve still got three CV books to write, so I probably won’t think about spinoffs until they’re a little further along. But I do have some ideas in that regard. As to my next series, absolutely. I hope to have some news on that in the very near future! 😉 Merit and Ethan are complicated characters. What was your inspiration when you created them and did […]


Review: Kicking It | High Stakes by Chloe Neill

Review: Kicking It | High Stakes by Chloe Neill

Posted November 21, 2013 by Jennifer in Book Review | 7 Comments

  High Stakes is a story featuring Merit’s vampire best friend and fellow protector of the Cadogan House, Lindsey. Lindsey gets a visit from her past life she lived during roaring 20s in the alcohol prohibition. Lindsey was a free loving flipper gal in the middle of mobster gang warfare in New York. It’s great to see some of Lindsey’s past since she is very closed mouth about her vampire youth and she is very afraid to commit to Luc, the hunky cowboy vampire of Cadogan House. While High Stakes is a very short read it was satisfying to see Luc and Lindsey get closer in their “non-relationship” with a little danger and a hot and emotional smexy scene. Fans of the Chicagoland Vampires series will […]

Review: Biting Bad by Chloe Neill

Biting Bad is the 8th book in the Chicagoland Vampires series you can expect a few series spoilers. If you are not up to date you may want to come back later to read my review. Chloe Neill took the series on a detour, some would even say a rocky detour, but with Biting Bad she got us back on the fast lane to awesomeness. Biting Bad is more like the earlier books. The ones that made me fall in love with the series. As with a lot of series after a while there’s a slow point, a book that stands out as the not-so-great-one. For me that was Biting Cold (#6). Things started getting back on track with House Rules but Biting Bad is […]

This is book 7 in a series, so don’t be surprised if I talk about plots in earlier books. If you’re not update on the series you may want to come back and read my review once you’ve read House Rules.    I think Chloe Neill has finally brought the series back around to where I can be excited about it again.   SPOILER I’m going to be honest… I’ve not been in love with Chicagoland since Drink Deep. No, I did not “die” after Hard Bitten ending with Ethan’s death. I don’t mind a main character dying if it adds to the over all plot of the series. I felt like his death was done well and had meaning. I had a little hard time with Ethan […]


Review: Twice Bitten by Chloe Neill

Review: Twice Bitten by Chloe Neill

Posted February 21, 2013 by Jonetta in Book Review | 0 Comments

Merit, now as one with her vampire self, is becoming more formidable. After her last showdown with Celine she knows she’s got her work cut out for her but Merit’s brain is still her strongest asset. Nick Breckenridge’s debacle has led to his Alpha leader, Gabriel Keene, asking for her help and protection as he prepares for the shifters convening in Chicago. Ethan’s helping with her combat training sessions, which are starting to look like foreplay. This book was the most exciting, and frustrating, so far. There’s mistrust between the vampires, the shifters are at odds with each other about whether to stay and support the brewing unrest between the humans and the vampires and someone’s trying to kill Gabriel. Merit’s relationship with Morgan deteriorated […]
