Review: Calling the Bluff (Down & Dirty, #2)

Calling the Bluff (Down & Dirty, #2)Calling the Bluff by Moira Rogers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A continuation of the Down and Dirty series.
There are characters you saw in the first, and ones you heard discussed.

Once again, super fast, but well written. It was over before I really even had a chance to get completely sucked in, which kind of, well, sucked 😦

Review: Wild Card (Down & Dirty, #1)

Wild Card (Down & Dirty, #1)Wild Card by Moira Rogers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Others have reviewed that it was abrupt and short.
I’ll agree with that. But it was well-written, and if there was a longer version, I’d completely read it.

It’s another unique spin on werewolves, and it is actually set in the future, but also in the past, if that makes sense.

Sex was hot and quite graphic, but not in the “practically porn” way. Just well done all around

Review: Colters’ Promise (Colters’ Legacy, #4)

Colters' Promise (Colters' Legacy, #4)Colters’ Promise by Maya Banks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, I feel a little weird reviewing this.
I’ve read the whole series and well, Angie {Smut Book Club} has me embracing my love of a little bit of smut.
The series is not for the faint of heart. If you’re not into erotica, with pretty explicit descriptions, this isn’t the book for you. Also, if you’re not a fan of multiple partners or BDSM, you won’t like this either. You have been warned.

It’s not as hot and spicy as the previous books. I think, honestly, there were only 3 sex scenes. If I’m going to be honest, I actually skipped over it. I actually yawned. It was sort of “Um, okay” for me. The previous ones weren’t like that, at all.

Review: Rapture: A Novel of the Fallen Angels

Rapture: A Novel of the Fallen AngelsRapture: A Novel of the Fallen Angels by J.R. Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story opens with beautiful imagery.
Of a cemetery.
So beautifully written that you feel like you’re there.
Matthias is back. He’s the soul. We knew that.
The choice he makes involves someone who knows of Beth {Dark Lover} by name only. I got excited when I read that sneak peek, thinking, “OOOH!! Vampires too” but nope. No one from the Black Dagger Brotherhood was involved. I’m wondering if it’ll tie together though, because of the angel that saved Tohr.
Anyways, another suspicion I have: Nigel is Dog. I swear! How else is Nigel always there when Dog isn’t, and visa versa?

Review: A Fool’s Gold Christmas (Fool’s Gold, #10)

A Fool's Gold Christmas (Fool's Gold, #10)A Fool’s Gold Christmas by Susan Mallery

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once again, I was sucked into the town of Fool’s Gold, reminded, again, of how much I love Susan Mallery’s little worlds that she creates.

But again, I dealt with walk-ins. Does NO ONE in this town know how to knock? Or lock a door, or something.

I loved seeing Evie and her mother re-develop their relationship, as well as Evie’s relationships with her brothers.

It was a good read, but felt rushed in parts, and a little disjointed.
And I’m sorry, but no jealousy that I read when the radio owner started, pretty much, hitting on Evie? That … just didn’t feel natural. SOMETHING should have happened.

Review: A Quick Bite (Argeneau, #1)

A Quick Bite (Argeneau, #1)A Quick Bite by Lynsay Sands

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Do you like vampires?
Do you love a good, new twist on them?
How about specialized technology?
Or the lost city of Atlantis?

Well, if you said yes, this series, honestly, is the series for you. Even if you’re not a fan of romance, you’ll like this.

We have uncles who come off as hard-asses, but are teddy bears with their family.
We have the teenyboppers that everyone rolls their eyes at.

I started this right before I fell asleep last night. I woke up this morning with the story in my head. I loved it.

Lissi is a vampire who has a blood phobia. Yeah, that’s like having a phobia of food when you’re a “human”. So her mother recruits Greg, a psychologist with a gift for phobias.

Unfortunately, Greg and Lissi fall for each other, and her phobia still isn’t cured, but they now have a lifetime, which is infinitely longer than our own, to live, love, and well, get treated for the weirdest phobia I’ve ever seen with a vampire.

Review: Envy by JR Ward

Envy (Fallen Angels, #3)Envy by J.R. Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s a lot of hints of things in this that might be answered in Raptured, which I’m excited to read.

I loved the duality of the characters. Not Devina. She, eh, I could do without her constant innuendo. She honestly just annoys the crap out of me. I’d like to take that crystal dagger and just stab her between the eyes.

I’m confused on the angels, though, still. Not Eddie and Adrian. The others, like Colin and the like. What is their purpose? Why do we have to keep hearing about them?
