Audio Review: No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole

Audio Review: No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole

  Between Cole’s writing and Petkoff’s narration; dry humping has never sounded so sexy. We first heard of Kaderin in No Hunger Like Another and knew that she was a bad ass chick with no feelings. But it’s not because she is a cold-hearted bitch. We learn more about her past and what happened to her to make her the way she is today. Sebastian is the younger brother to Nikolai Wroth, who was the yummy vampire in the novella, The Warlord Wants Forever. So already the two are tied together through Nikolai and Myst’s marriage. (Myst is member of Kaderin’s Valkyrie family.) Kaderin has prided herself on being a great vampire killer, whose sword never fails taking a vampire’s life. But when she finds […]

If you are new to this series I would highly recommend that you read the novella The Warlord Wants Forever before reading A Hunger Like No Other. It will help introduce you into the world and to Valkyrie convent that the heroine grew up in. Also the couple that is in the novella shows up in Hunger and I was glad that I knew their back story. I’ve had this series on my TBR list for over a year and finally decided to start it and I’m so glad I did. Kresley Cole has been added to my list of favorite authors. She does an excellent job of mixing romance and humor. I find myself laughing a lot at the chicks in the Valkyrie convent. I can’t wait to read more […]

Audio Review: Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper

Audio Review: Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper

Molly Harper never fails to bring the snark and a pinch of sexy to her loveable characters. So I was excited to jump into another light and fun read with Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors. Jane and the group are back for another fun-filled mystery. This time around Jane is dealing with her own wedding planning issues, more dead relatives, and being a new mother so to speak. Seems that someone always wants to kill or at least maim Jane. And she usually makes things worse by running off by herself to solve the mystery of who it is. But this time Jane is showing her maturity by letting her friends do the heavy lifting in the department of who wants Jane dead. Jane […]


Audio Review: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

Audio Review: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

This series is set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson Series, but on a slightly earlier time line. It begins with a novella titled Alpha and Omega published in the On the Prowl anthology. The decision to continue the story was made after the anthology had already been published, which has caused some confusion, since “book 1” is an actually a continuation of the short story. The series has plenty of action, but there’s more emphasis on the romantic attraction between the hero and heroine. On a romance-readers scale, this series is sweet rather than steamy. I highly recommend reading the novella Alpha and Omega before reading Cry Wolf. You will get a better feel for Anna’s character and why hers and Charles’ relationship is […]

Audio Review: City of Ghosts by Stacia Kane

BRAVO!!! Kane has done it again. Each book replaces the last as my favorite in the series. Kane’s cast of misfits is back in City of Ghosts. Chess is still working for the Church as a debunker and yes she still has her drug addiction. Terrible is still the best anti-hero EVER! We even get to see some of Lex and Bump in this installment. “Most Debunkers spent their money on actual things, rather than just buying anything they could swallow, smoke or snort. Unlike Chess.” Just when I thought that Unholy Magic was an emotional ride, here comes City of Ghosts to continue ripping my heart out. I feel like I’m on Chess’ pills with all the highs and lows that the two go […]

Kate and the gang are back and it’s bloodier than ever with the war between magic and tech in full swing. Kate really tests her magical power in Magic Slays. You thought she was bad ass before? She is only getting better with each book. “Hell was driving a blood-soaked van listening to two children dying in the backseat, while Grendel whined as if something were killing him.” What would Kate Daniels’ book be without blood, gore and someone trying to kill her? Please that’s just another Tuesday for Kate. Kate is dealing with a lot of changes in her personal and professional life. She is no longer working for The Order; she and Andrea open up a P.I. business together. Then there’s the whole learning […]

Seriously, if you have not started this series get off your butt and do it! FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. This is the going to be a hard review for me to write without spilling the whole story. UGH it was so awesomely heart breaking. I rarely give a book 5 stars but I had to give this that extra star that the first book, Unholy Ghosts, didn’t get. The reason for the extra star? Because of the emotional tug of war I had while reading it. I love Chess, I hate Chess, I want to slap her, I want to be her (minus the drug addiction). There was so many up and down moments between Chess and Terrible in this one that I was wore out after listening […]
