Image Monica McCarty “Viper” review

The Viper (Highland Guard, #4)The Viper by Monica McCarty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am normally not a fan of historical romance but Monica McCarty has converted me completely to this genre. I cannot stop reading this series. The women are strong, the men are heroic and the story is in depth. I will tell potential readers that this is a series you definitley want to start from the beginning and not mid-series. You will enjoy it so much more.
Lachlan “Viper” MacRuairi is our hero. We have met him throughout the other 3 books as we have all of the Highland guard. His eyes give him away and his past makes him who he is. That is until we meet Bella McDuff, whom we have also had glances of in previous books. She is a countess and is our brave heroine. She is one of the strongest and most inspirational women I have met in this entire series. Her strength and courage is also what attracts Viper.
The action in this book is non-stop. Bella, however, becomes a little annoying, which is the reason I have to give this book 4 stars. She really got on my nerves with her search for her daughter. I understood her plight but it got somewhat selfish and annoying as the book progressed. That is my only real complaint. But, MacRuairi made up for it, by showing us the reason his name is Viper. His action and fighting sequences are awesome and non-stop. Although, this is not a fantasy or paranormal genre the guys seem to do things that seem unbelievable but not in a bad way. It works and does not take a way from the story.
So far this is my favorite book in the series but I have a whole lot to go and I look forward to the rest of this series.

Image Showalter book review

The Harder You Fall (The Original Heartbreakers, #3)The Harder You Fall by Gena Showalter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved this book. It was my favorite of the Heartbreakers series. I enjoyed this finale as well as the entire series because you can read these out of order and not be lost. Showalter, is one of my favorite authors because of her Lords of the Underworld series. She, however, does not disappoint with this romance series.
Lincoln and Jessie Kay have been fighting their desire for each other the entire series. I wondered how this would work considering she has already slept with Lincoln’s other friends. But, this is a book so anything is possible including water under the bridge. Once you get over that fact, the book becomes adorable. I love Jessie Kay’s playfulness and how she breaks down Lincoln’s walls. She uses her strongest asset, which is her very outgoing personality, to woo Lincoln. There is even some action going on with a jealous wanna-be lover. I don’t think Showalter can get away without putting a little action adventure into all of her books and she has once again done it in a believable way.
This a great series to pick up especially for a by the pool summer read. It is light and fun and of course sexy.

Image Act of Mercy Book Review

Act of Mercy (PSI Ops, #1)Act of Mercy by Mandy M. Roth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was gvien this book for free for an honest book review. I have no idea where this book came from but WHERE HAVE I BEEN!!?? I loved this book so much. I laughed out loud so many times my kids thought I was crazy. These guys are hilarious and I am in love with them. Mercy is the heroin and she is a perfect. If a woman does not get on my nerves in a book she is a winner!! She was smart,helpful and not a pushover. I had no idea this was a spin-off of another series but I am a fan of this author and I definitely will check out her other books and the rest in this series.

Image Divine Ecstasy Book Review

Divine Ecstasy (Guardians of the Realms #8)Divine Ecstasy by Setta Jay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

he has done it again. This woman is amazing. I received this book free for an honest book review. I have been running through this series like candy and I have yet to be disappointed. Being a fan of paranormal romance I have met many Hades characters but I must say this one is my favorites. He is arrogant, sexy and powerful.. The story begins where Drake’s left of with the Heroine Sacha some sort of magical coma and Hades awakens her with power and even THAT is sexy.
I liked Sacha’s back story and the fact that Hades was very sensitive to her needs and making her comfortable. Hades truly is a softy when it comes to the people he loves but not so much that it takes away from his character. Then there is the sex…OMG!! who knew a haircut could be so sexy. They are all kinds of nasty freaky!!
This series is wonderful and just keeps getting better with new characters and worlds being introduced to us every single time we read.

Image All in for Lust book review

All In for Lust (Soul Seductors Book 1): A Paranormal Alpha Male RomanceAll In for Lust (Soul Seductors Book 1): A Paranormal Alpha Male Romance by Amelia Gates
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Too much to soon with no explanation

I received this bookA first book is supposed to make you desire to read the others. This book had potential until all the other characters were thrown into the mix. You do not have enough time to introduce new characters when I haven’t a clue about the first 2. I know what a soul seductor is but what happens to Maria Maria and Kraze? I could have been a fan if the author drew me in with the two main characters instead of all the co-stars.

Image Book Review for Kresley Cole ‘s Sweet Ruin

Sweet Ruin (Immortals After Dark, #16)Sweet Ruin by Kresley Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was everything and more. The beauty of Kresley Cole is she has the most powerful and strong women in all of books. I never have to worry about a dingy chic because she won’t give you one. This book is no different.
The main characters are Josephine and Rune. Both are hybrids and meet in a courtyard under strange circumstances. Then the adventure begins. Rune in his arrogance must pursue the one woman who he cannot have while Josephine does everything in her power to learn more about the Lore from Rune. This of course would not be a Kresley Cole book without our favorite anti-hero Nix. She of course sends them in one direction only to end up somewhere they never truly expected. we also see a side of Nix that is almost scary. I laughed and I almost cried following these two characters. The plot has become even thicker with the new characters of Moron.
I would recommend this book to those who have been following Cole since the beginning. If you have not, you will be very lost. I too became lost at points, trying to remember characters from many books ago. Considering that this is Cole’s 16th book in the series it is easy to lose track.
Sweet Rune is yet another great addition to this highly addictive book series.

http://The Hotter You Burn (The Original Heartbreakers, #2)The Hotter You Burn by Gena Showalter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ugh…it hurts so bad. I LOVE Gena Showalter and I enjoy this series, but I was so annoyed by this book. I actually skipped the second book in the series waiting on the library to get it, but I was able to follow very easily. I was annoyed that Harlow would not just LEAVE!! Who the hell is going to stay in a place with nothing but negative memories? These people treated her like crap and damn near killed her and she LOVES the town so much…girl bye. Then she lives in a TENT?? What the hell? I could not wrap my head around that entire concept and then the RV comes into play. Who does this? I was just confused as to why she made her life so hard and why Beck was such an idiot dying to sleep with her.
I will admit that I enjoyed the playful banter, but the tent just threw me off. Not once but TWICE she moves into a tent and DOES NOT LEAVE…JUST LEAVE THE DAMN TOWN!!!
I love you Gena but this one through me for a loop.
