Audio: Rev It Up by Julie Ann Walker

Audio: Rev It Up by Julie Ann Walker

      This is the third in The Black Knights Inc. series  and the second I’ve listened to audio.  Rev It Up is my favorite so far. Perhaps, because I know the characters and world better. The stories don’t include very much about motorcycles, not really.  Other than flashbacks, there isn’t much about their missions. The stories are the romance and happenings in their day-to-day lives or the blow back of missions onto personal lives.. The bad guys from a previous operation are out to kill them. It’s personal. So the BKI team is on alert. They need to catch the bad guys before they kill any of their own. I appreciate their caution and intelligence; they don’t make too many mistakes. Jake has just […]

Of Silk and Steam brings the events that has been building since book 1, Kiss of Steel are finally brought to a close. Bec McMaster writes great characters and her couples are always fun to see go through their issues to get to their HEA. This time she brings us a couple that are frenemies of a sort. Mina does not like Leo Barrons because his father killed her father. Yeah, that’s going to be a big issue to get over in order for them to get friendly with each other. Leo has wanted Mina for his own for a few years and has been patient in his “chase” of her. Of course it pays off and seeing Leo melt Mina’s chilly exterior was both fun […]

I listened to Eleventh Grave in Moonlight in one sitting! Charley usually has a few “irons in the fire” and she really juggled few more issues this time around. There were a few mysteries, some she was paid to figure out since she’s a P.I. and all. (One can’t live off of just coffee, although I think if someone could it would be Charley and Cookie.) The other mysteries were a little more personal, which is the case with all the books in Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series but they’ve never crossed over Charley’s job as much as the case of the Frosts aka the elderly couple that kidnapped baby Reyes all those years ago just to give him to the master, Earl Walker. About […]

  When she witnessed the inhumane treatment of her mother at the hands of the English, Joan Comyn silently vowed her allegiance to the king of Scotland. As soon as she was old enough, she used her wiles to extract vital information from powerful men and delivered it to Robert Bruce and his Highland Guard. She became known only to them as the Ghost, her identity secreted. But she was infamous to all as the effect of her treachery was damaging. Alex Seaton, formerly a member of the Guard before her time, is now working on behalf of King Edward and is committed to squirreling out the spy. However, he’s beguiled by Joan and she with him. This series is ending on the highest note […]


Audio review: Reckless River by Lindsay Cross

Audio review: Reckless River by Lindsay Cross

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 […]
