  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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: Blood & Spirits by Dennis Sharpe

Review: Blood & Spirits by Dennis Sharpe

First I’d like to thank Mr. Sharpe for contacting me and giving me the opportunity to read his awesome book. I’ve never read anything by a male author before and the only reason is the genres I usually read are mostly written by female authors. But don’t be fooled, Sharpe does an excellent job of building his female heroine, Veronica. I never once thought about the author being male while reading the book. My co-workers (mostly male) tease me about the books I read, they call it “vampire porn”. One asked me what I was reading the other day and I told him about the Blood & Spirits and that it was written by a male author. So he said, “What is the foreplay in […]

I almost gave up on the series after the last two books, Biting the Bullet and Bitten to Death. But not even 2 chapters into One More Bite I was glad I decided to read one more book. This installment of the Jaz Parks series is definitely my favorite. Jaz is at her top sarcastic form and Cole, her sexy sidekick is back in full force with his hilarious stories and commentary. “When do you think they’ll let me get my cell out?: Cole asked. “I promised Mom I’d text her as soon as we land. I’m going to stick my phone up some guy’s kilt, flash a picture, and then challenge her to guess what she’s seeing.” “That is so disgusting.” “What? I’ll get […]


Audio Review: Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

Audio Review: Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

May have spoilers if you have not read books 1-3. Ok. This one is a re-read for me. Well, I cheated a little and checked out the audio book from the library and listened to it at work since I have so many other books to read at the moment. Anyway – I wanted to revisit this book to refresh my memory on the little details before the new season of True Blood starts on June 26th. The 4th season is based on the 4th book, Dead to the World. I read Dead to the World for the 1st time in 2009 and I loved it. The biggest thing that stuck with me from this book was the shower scene (if you have read it […]

Review: Bitten to Death by Jennifer Rardin

Bitten to Death is the fourth book in the Jaz Parks series by Jennifer Rardin. This one like the 3rd book was a little slow in my opinion. There was not enough action and I kept waiting for something to happen between Jaz and Vayl. I understand this is an Urban Fantasy series and the romance part is not usually “in-your-face” like in paranormal romance but come on, four books and still no hanky-panicky?! I’m sure I am feeling just a frustrated as Vayl. In Bitten to Death, Jaz, Vayl and David are invited to Vayl’s old Vampere Trust by the leader, Hamon, in hopes of finally catching Edward Samos, aka The Raptor. For those of you that have not read this series yet, Samos is the […]
