Audio review: Reckless River by Lindsay Cross

Audio review: Reckless River by Lindsay Cross

Posted January 20, 2017 by Anne in Book Review | 0 Comments

I read the first two books in the Men of Mercy series, Redemption River and Resurrection River, which did not impress me. Sadly, this is more of the same. The special forces team is mostly not present and there is no mission here for them. One member of the team Jared, goes back to his childhood hometown to get revenge for the abuse he and his brother suffered. His brother is captured and tortured. Jared spends most of his time, even when trying to get his dying brother to medical help, thinking with his little head. His focus is nearly always having sex with Sparrow, the grown-up girl who freed the brothers when they were young. Of course, she is a virgin. Sparrow is also strong, smart, […]


The Operator by Kim Harrison

The Operator by Kim Harrison

Kim Harrison always delivers a great ride and The Operator is another keep-your-hands-inside-the-cart ride you will want to be first in line to experience. So I did a reread of The Drafter via audio before I started The Operator because this series is one that you need to remember the details for, so no you can’t jump into this new series without reading the first book. Don’t even try! I really enjoyed listening to both (I read The Drafter the first time). January LaVoy does a fantastic job delivering the action and feelings involved in Peri’s world. She managed to keep the pace at the correct speed for the scenes and interjected the perfect tones for each character and their personalities. The Operator builds upon […]


The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

           read it, track it is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and the reviews will be super short. I really enjoyed 9th Grave and was a little anxious to listen to The Curse of Tenth Grave. I guess I was afraid I wouldn’t like it as much but that was silly. I loved being back in Charley’s world. This series is fun, sassy with a deeper thing happening underneath. Jones tricks you with the snark and then slips in the big plot issues and leaves you thinking WHAT DID I JUST READ?! I’m not sure how many more books are planned but I can’t wait to see how all the dots connects for the big finale. I believe […]

                    The team of Blakely and York never fails to entertain! Hot doctor and sweet baker that’s Chase and Josie. I love couples that start off as best friends and turns into lovers who have been in love with each other for a long time but are too afraid to act on their attraction. Chase is best friends with Wyatt from Well Hung, who is also Josie’s brother. Josie is Nick from Mister O sister. Everyone knew these two had a thing for each other it only took them becoming roommates to figure it out for themselves. Full Package is a fun and sexy friends to lovers romance from Lauren Blakely. These group of friends and siblings always have great […]


A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet as an amazing start to what I am sure will be a fantastic series. Cat puts me in mind of watered-down Kate Daniels. She is in hiding from a dangerous parent, her case the mother, and she has to destroy any signs of her blood if she bleeds. She fights her attraction to the alpha male that wants her, but that’s true of most heroines at first. Cat is good with knives and has magical powers. I think want I liked most about A Promise of Fire was the banter between Cat and the other characters. She is “catty” most of the time, but not in a way that puts you off of her as a reader. She’s […]


Audio Review: The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Audio Review: The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

    Laura Blacklock is a travel journalist who luckily finds herself booked aboard a special voyage of the Aurora, a new luxury cruise liner. She’s replacing her co-worker who couldn’t make the trip. All goes well until one night when she’s awakened by a scream, followed by a splash from the adjacent cabin #10. Problem is, the woman she’d seen earlier occupying that stateroom wasn’t booked as a passenger or crew on the ship nor does anyone else appear to be missing.   This story took quite a bit of time to develop and seemed to meander at will. Laura (Lo) had a lot of issues that contributed to her not being taken seriously by many when her story couldn’t be validated. But then, […]

Winter Moon is a full cast holiday adventure not to be missed by Dark and Poole fans!   It’s always fun to visit the Seven series by Dannika Dark.  Add in the holidays, hold on for the fun ride dashing through the crazy that is the Weston Pack. Winter Moon allows us to revisit the couples of the series and how they spend the holidays together. Nothing like wanting until the last minute to get Christmas gifts for the loved ones and ALL of the characters in Winter Moon are guilty of it. To be fair, shifters do not put importance on gifts and the holidays like humans do, but when Lexie wants a tree for the family the pack goes into the woods to bring one […]
