NICE GUYS BITE takes place after the events of UNRAVELED (#15). It is told from the point of view of Silvio Sanchez, Gin’s personal assistant.

Working for Gin Blanco (aka the Spider, the assassin who runs the Ashland underworld) doesn’t leave much time for romance, especially with Gin’s holiday party planning in full swing. But when he catches the eye of a charming gentleman, Silvio finds himself going out for coffee.

All’s fair in love and war, though. Just as Silvio is starting to enjoy himself, he realizes he’s being watched. His nice-guy date doesn’t sense the danger, and Silvio wants to keep it that way (and, well, keep the guy alive) so Silvio ends the date early—only to be abducted by some villainous giants.

Will Silvio survive the night and make it back to the Pork Pit in time for Gin’s holiday party? Only if he decks the hall with bodies …

Silvio is a character to watch!

Silvio has been growing on me as a part of Gin’s team. He can go toe to toe with Finn on the snarky one liners and putting away the food. Now after reading Nice Guys Bite we get to see that Silvio can hold his own when it comes to taking on the bad guys. He has some moves of his own, Gin would be proud of!

I will definitely look at Silvio different after reading Nice Guys Bite. He’s not just a pencil pusher for Gin. I loved how the novella wrapped up and how Silvio feels like he is part of a family with the gang.

What can I say, Gin’s my girl! In Unraveled she shows the underbelly that there’s a new sheriff in town. I love that Unraveled has Philly in it! He’s a likable character like Finn and can deliver the snarky lines and is great to have for back up. Gin is working to figure how who is in the Circle, a super-secret group that we hear about in the previous book, Bitter Bite. While the plot for this installment starts out in Ashland, Gin, and her posse take a weekend vacation to Bullet Pointe. Bullet Pointe is a western theme park and hotel resort near Ashland and Finn got the deed to it from his dead mother. If you’re a fan of the series then you know that […]


Unwanted by Jennifer Estep

Unwanted by Jennifer Estep

Posted July 20, 2016 by Jennifer in Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway | 6 Comments

If you’ve not read Bitter Bite there will be a mild spoiler.   Much like Owen needed to wrap up some things in his novella, Kiss of Venom, after Widow’s Web,  Finn needed to deal with the emotional fall-out of Bitter Bite in his own novella. Finn is alone for the most of Unwanted but it’s not because his friends aren’t around to help. He believes he deserves to be alone after mommy dearest almost killed him and a few of Gin’s group. Unwanted is how Finn feels after the bank robbery that killed many of his co-workers. They blame Finn for the deaths and so does he. Finn is no longer Mr. Popular at work and he would be ok with that if it wasn’t […]

     If you ask Lila Merriweather how she spent her summer break, she would tell you that she became a team player, made some friends, has a new boyfriend, and helped take down some bad guys. You know the typical teenager’s summer. Bright Blaze of Magic was a nice wrap up of the Black Blade trilogy by Jennifer Estep.  Lila gets her closer from the past and a has bright looking future with the Sinclair family. Well done Estep! I like that Lila’s story was told in a trilogy, there was no unnecessary over-drawn drama that you get with some long running series. Estep gives you some fun characters, action, mystery and a little violence (I would have liked to see more blood and death but I’m […]


Audio Review: Bitter Bite by Jennifer Estep

Audio Review: Bitter Bite by Jennifer Estep

        I received a print copy of Bitter Bite for review from Pocket but since I’ve not listened to a Gin adventure since book 7, Widow’s Web but mind you I have the whole series on audio because I love how Fortgang performances Estep’s writing especially her voice for Finn so I decided to wait for the audio. I loved slipping back into this world and characters via Fortgang’s delivery. **Series Spoiler Head** I was so excited at the end of the previous installment when it was apparent that we were going to get some long overdue details about a character I’ve been wondering about since the first book in the series, Spider’s Bite. Who is Finn’s mother? What happen to her? Was she and Fletcher married? […]

    Jennifer Estep doing what she does best . . . writing strong and sassy heroines that have a taste for vengeance, justice and yummy food. Dark Heart of Magic takes place a couple of weeks after Cold Burn of Magic and Lila finds herself part of the Sinclair family. Which is really weird for her since she has lived on the streets for the last 4 years with only one friend, Mo. Now she’s living in a mansion with other people and pixies. There are rules to follow and people who care about her. But Lila tries her best to keep her distance since she plays on leaving when the year she agreed to stay is up. But there’s one person that Lila is having […]

Jennifer Estep Enlightens Us on How a Book is Edited

Posted October 21, 2015 by Jennifer in Author Guest Post | 11 Comments

Greetings! First of all, I want to say thanks to Jennifer for hosting me on her blog again. Thanks so much!   So today Jennifer asked me to talk a little bit about the book production process and what some of the various publishing terms mean. Revisions, line edits, copy edits, page proofs … it can get confusing when you hear an author talk about all these things. So here’s a rundown of what these terms mean and the general process that an author and her book goes through before you see the finished book on the shelves. I’ve included some examples of things that I’ve been asked on my various books, including Dark Heart of Magic, the second book in my Black Blade young […]


Jennifer Estep’s favorite fights scenes from her Elemental Assassin series

Jennifer Estep’s favorite fights scenes from her Elemental Assassin series

Posted August 3, 2015 by Jennifer in Stomp vs Romp 2015 | 18 Comments

  Greetings! A big thanks to Jennifer for hosting me on her blog again. Thanks so much, Jen! So it’s time for the annual STOMP vs. ROMP smackdown. What side are you on? Fight scenes are one of my favorite things to write, so I am Team STOMP all the way. Whether I’m writing it or reading it or watching it, there’s just something about a good fight scene that really pulls me into the story and makes me root for the heroine to kick some bad-guy butt. Whenever I sit down to write one of my Elemental Assassin books, one of the first things I think about is the big fight scene at the end and how my assassin heroine Gin Blanco can use her wits […]
